Jeff Bezoss second act
"Now. That jeff bezos is leaving his role as amazon ceo. Everyone's wondering what the future holds for one of the wealthiest people in the world. In fact this doesn't mean bazo stepping out of the spotlight at all. It's actually more likely that his spotlight will just be getting larger joining me to discuss. This is recode teddy cypher. Hey so does this. News about basil's mean less pressure on him overall. Or any less scrutiny. I think you can make a good argument. That scrutiny on basis himself is actually going to increase even though he's no longer. Ceo of amazon. You know this is somebody who has become a symbol in some ways of of one extreme in american capitalism He's now the second wealthiest person. I don't think that's going to mean that much less scrutiny. But obviously you know he's gonna fade right. When amazon is called a testify on capitol hill. it probably won't be jeff bezos. Who's gonna be there it'll be successor. Andy jazzy but bezos is going to be under a lot of pressure to do good for the world with this money. Which is something. That basis is going to have to navigate so i don't think he's fading from from public eye. He's going to be executive chairman of the company. And now he's going to have to answer questions about him as a person in a way that he has only really begun to over the last couple of years. Basil's actually has reputation for not sharing his money. He hasn't signed the giving pledge he hasn't promised to give away all of his money in his lifetime. Do you think that he'll finally start stepping up and becoming a big time. Philanthropist like some of beers bill gates and otherwise so basis over the last few years has started to part with more and more of his fortune as scrutiny has been increasing on him. You know the biggest commitment in charity last year from anybody was ten billion dollars that basis set aside for climate change research which is a huge amount of money. He also a couple of years ago. Set aside two billion dollars for a homelessness initiatives and for a series of montessori preschools. He's developing so. I think you could definitely say five years ago. That he was not on the scene but now he he's emerging on it and look. I mean there's still a lot more money to go. I mean two hundred billion dollars is hard get rid of it really is but he is As becoming more and more famous. I think you see him starting to understand that you can't really get away with being so parsimonious just as a lot of pressure rummy whether whether that's Motivating him or you know. His belief in the causes motivating him. There is indisputable public pressure. When you're the richest person not just one of many which people now. What about his space boundary. Gms bezos has said in the past that he wants to spend the majority or could spend the majority of his money on blue origin. He founded the company a long time ago. Can you remind us what the company is. What has been doing sure so. Basis has been selling a billion dollars a year of amazon shares to finance blue origin and blue origin is actually two decades old. I think we forget that this has been around for way longer than his philanthropic projects Blue origin is Spacecraft company that's trying to commercialize private speech travel It's frequently said in the same breath as spacex. Which is the private space travel company financed by a different tack. Billionaire the only person who's in the same stratosphere wealth as him Hummus elon musk. So musk in. Bezos are two billionaires who are at the forefront of private investment in space now. I'm not an expert on everything Space related but generally blue origin is seen as lagging spacex. Now is that because betas an financing and enough orient spend enough time on it if that is the case then you gotta feel good about Future given that basis has a lot of money leftovers. We just talked about and that he is going to be spending more time on his hands to to maybe dig into this. So you've got the philanthropist bezos the star man and potentially base the media mogul any insight into what he wants to do at the washington post. Yeah those are the three Three doors jeff as is gonna walk through over the next couple of decades. He's only h fifty seven so he's got a long time to go. Basil's bought the post. I guess now seven eight years ago in what is now seen as as a bargain deal. Probably you know he gets high marks for overseeing the post. It's you know he's given it a lot of runway. It is now profitable You know it's obviously facing uncertain. Future like all big media. Companies are after the trump era can the heap subscriptions coming At a same clip can the key public interest in their work. As high as it's been over the last few years oppose searching for new editor which is going to be a process that i imagine basis will be involved with in some capacity and look he. He has said that this is part of his work to defend kind of american democracy so I don't know if he's an invest more money in the post now profitable. It's privately held but he will probably be more available for phone calls if anyone has a neon complaints about washington post stories
The US needs a radical revolution of values
"Five years my father was assassinated and he did change the world but the tragedy is that we didn't hear what he was saying to us as a prophet to his this nation in his words river. Reverberating back to us change. We all know is necessary right now. It's not easy. But i wanna talk about america's choice and a greater level. The prophet said to us. We still have a choice today. Nonviolent coexistence or violent coalition literally in the streets of our nation people who have been following the path non violent protests and people who have been hailed bent on destruction. Those choices are now at us and we have to make a choice. History of this nation was founded in violets. My father said america is the greatest purveyor of violence and the only way forward is if we repent for being a nation built on violence. And i'm not just talking about physical violence. I'm talking about systemic violence. I'm talking about policy. Violence i'm talking about what he spoke of the triple eagles of poverty. Racism and militarism all violent albert einstein. Stein said something to us. You said we cannot solve problems on the same level of thinking in which they were created and so if we are going to move forward we are going to have to deconstruct these systems of violence that we have seven america. And we're going to have to reconstruct on a not a foundation that foundation happens to be love and nonviolence and saw as we move forward weaken correct course if we make better choice that daddy said nonviolent coexistence and that continue on the pathway of violent cornell elation does that look like that that looks like some deconstruction work in order to get to the construction. We have to deconstruct are thinking. We've got to deconstruct the way in which we see people and deconstruct the way in which we operate practice and engage in policy and so i believe that there's a lot of heart a t. a. r. to work to do in the midst of all the h. a. r. d. hard work to do because heart work is hard work. One of the things we have to do is we have to ensure that everyone especially my white brothers and sisters after engaged in bihar work. The anti racism work in our hearts zapped from this especially in my white community. We must do that work in our hearts the anti racism work. The second thing is that. I encourage people to look at but mom violence training that we the kings of the kingston about or so that we learned the foundation of understanding our interrelatedness and interconnectedness. That we understand our loyalties and commitments and our policy-making can no longer be devoted to one group of people but has to be devoted to the the greater good of all people we all have to change and have to make a choice. It is a choice to change the direction that we have been going. We need a revolution of values in this country. That's what my daddy said you changed the world change hearts and now what has happened over the last seven eight years history. We have to change course and we all have to participate in changing america with a true revolution values where people are at the center and not profit. When morality is at the center and that our military might america does have a choice. We can even choose to go down. Continually that path of destruction or we can choose nonviolent coexistence and as my mother said struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really one in every generation
Argentines bid final farewell to Maradona as national mourning begins
"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty
Spirit Week (MM #3475)
"The Maison with Kevin Nation back in my much younger day. We used to have Spirit Week in high school. It was usually around football homecoming or maybe when this whole team went to the state tournament, but these days I've noticed something and I see it through my Facebook timeline that grade school kids are celebrating their own versions of spirit week. I just kind of shake my head and I noticed it a lot the last couple of weeks are in Facebook. Now, I realized covid-19 has changed everything. But if we're just this year, I wouldn't think anything about it. But I've seen it over the last few years. I saw a picture of one of my friends kids who were maybe seven eight years old. I think they're in first or second grade. It was spirit week and they were dressed in their favorite decade the eighties, you know, the one that ended thirty years ago and started forty years ago. I'm thinking of myself. What does a seven or eight-year-old child know about the 1980s? Okay, maybe mom was born in the a teenage Mom dressed him up that way but why are kids celebrating Spirit Week in grade school now, maybe if I had kids would understand and I don't have any problem with them doing it. It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. It's really strange to me. I got to admit dead.

Alex Natera on the Origin of Run-Specific Isometrics
"Alex it's awesome to have you back and I think in this type of necessity really where I think a lot of us are a little bit more barebones place than we typically are in our own trading environments and things like that. I I'd like to ask you a little bit of the history of what we talked about. Lascaux which was Your isometric training protocol and. I'm curious how did you come up with that? Like what was the necessity that sparked the all the overcoming isometrics in that protocol that you talked about last time on the show? Yeah sure I think. There's actually a real spock incident before that incident occurred always already involved in some full loss metric training through right back to where a little kid. I was a martial artist Back in the day as a youngster is a five six year old and happened to do a really sort of traditional style. Mosh largely run out in the Wilderness and the and the scillies out in the wilderness. And you'll you'll they're bamboo flooring in your training out there. Doing all sorts of a real traditional taught work. And there's a lot of awesome metrics back. Then I remember back in the Divan and advocates that were in the martial lots like I just felt like always automatic genetics. Whatever the youngsters. Six seven eight year old but I always felt stronger than them but we just doing. Masha up four or five. Times die Just Chine- Anyway. But in that. Masha outs sign much. Awesome metric stuff ruled traditional stuff pushing against your own hands against objects are the people that were bigger than you and that sort of stuff let alone. The numerous amount of push ups. You do as well or whatever but so. That was a I sort of Introduction the awesome metrics Was Awesome Energy. Was just something we have to kind of thing and then I guess another key moment was going into high school starting to try starting to lift weights learning Lipson. Let's Basically much traditionalist. There was some point in time and Utah used to try. And he's still do try to stop a very visceral that but locks when you're young and so. I remember trying just thinking from a necessity. Really Thinking Rob will Lift the white up but also lower light down as much as possible. I didn't know anything about muscle actions yet. I've learned that you can also hold a white cockatoo. That with different loads at different times. We'll warm I gonNA just sit there and do bench press and then file pushing it up and rocky no one on file lowering it. I'll get a spot on. I'll foul Lawrence and on a file like holding it. As as long as I can with the highest white on compulsively hold it for so I was already playing with stuff then and obviously now. You've got lots of other things. Come into the system. Here you've got your growth and maturation ideologies Chinese very rapidly in whatever nonetheless. You're starting to think while they stopped really works like this is amazing. I'm getting far stronger than everyone else. And Excelling Sport and so on but then I finish them Action into my sport now as a professional and one position applied we American listens But in the scrum always in from the middle of a scrum where you're literally pushing V. I gather As much load going through your body and if your dominant scrum you might start with. We men overcome them eventually. And then push would. But there's not a lot of concentric taught movement it's really a high blood isometric and modernization onto struggle kickable back to the arrest of nights so on between massive men and I honored killers. Where the pressure coming at you and I'm having to stabilize on one leg while accessible by and start it just made sense to me. That has all its training. Could squat uncle really well. A strong squad relatively speaking an absolute sims will for my size but I just started doing more symmetric work and it felt like what heavy load felt lock the scrum and therefore and the transit was dramatic from an average on ended up becoming quota yet act became a strong point of Ma Game. Attest completely dos. Metrics now is very specific wrought as in muscle action was very specific to the to the movement that I needed to do in the game then moving along in our going into the professional environment in terms of a practitioner working as a strength and conditioning are starting to use awesome metrics in the reeb setting often and at also in the assessment the assessment of neuromuscular capacities particular peak force. So that'll started coming in really when I started moving over to the English Wish probably my my biggest development journey for instance for example. Sorry and time on end up taking a few people through the rehabilitation early with the Physiotherapists import obviously on the early stages. But then some of the exercises way would doing on carry on with the longer because we'd see guy for a period of time where you got six weeks or something doing awesome interest. Because that's all they could in the Rehab setting and then I'd move on to more autonomy would but actually stop keep keeps them awesome metric in long because my mind I was going hold on getting any pine from this exercise where actually really really high near Moscow. So I can look them hot on this exercise. Robin drop the white and become what we thought was more specific moving into US twenty tropic so that and then what I was seeing the back of that with some really promising results like people just coming back a lot quicker and a lot stronger and so I needed less back work of strength training to get them often and returning to plan returning to

athletes shockingly as a former athlete himself he hasn't been responsive kind of Nero fiddling while Rome burns and he had to do this today and what what happened was that he thought a letter statement from the international Olympic committee basically saying that they will now be here the athletes to hear their concerns I think that the driving real difficulty training they're concerned about their health they're concerned about the well being of their family members and friends that they might be training with if if they're going for the Olympic Games what is the status of Olympic trials around the world a venue that the ability to even find a swimming pool to swim and that really came to time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Indiana University poll because they closed then kicked out of the YMCA three time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Y. is living in Indiana that's the plight of these athletes right now in the midst of all of our restrictions and understandable concerns about the pandemic and so Thomas Bach the IOC president finally got it and having lost the athletes you trying to win them back by saying he hears their voices he hears their concerns that it will be for weeks now that they will spend looking at the options the weather all the games this is another July twenty fourth August ninth in Tokyo which seems unlikely or postpone them which is kind of like turning a battleship not like postponing the NBA or the NHL or moving the masters and the British and the Boston Marathon guys this is a whole different thing to move an Olympics would be extraordinary and unprecedented but that's what they're looking at right now and look at themselves for weeks that decision do you think you made the right call Christine because I know that he use the word premature in terms of making a decision on whether the Tokyo games will be played but given the uncertainty around the corona virus and the number of leagues worldwide that have either postpone their seasons canceled their season said you know we're gonna put a pause on this and come back in twenty twenty one and we think this will be gone do you think that the Olympics should have taken that same approach are you where do you stand on the side of what Thomas Bach said today right Cordero I think I think that's the only decision you could make because they're trying to kick the can down the road a little bit and you're actually right other athletes who are endangering their health by continuing to train we don't know the answer to that will know if and when someone had positive for coronavirus and and that will probably be the definitive answer to your question that would be unfortunate to get to that point but you have to be NBA shut down when they had back with her to go there I think we may well see if that be the case even though it's a very different scenario because athletes are training all over the country all over the world and often they're by themselves or with just one or two people drive like they're in arenas that are full of fans it's it's a different scenario but I do think we cover the Olympics since nineteen eighty four our coverage you know never intern summer nothing surprises me about with the international Olympic committee will do and how to lead and to stand out of it they are and so with that in mind I think this is probably the only decision they were going to make because they want to take a little more time but my sense is postponement is on the horizon even though that is incredibly difficult for a city like Tokyo that they're preparing for what seven eight years for the moment obviously this is so much different than just moving a tournament a few months or even a year because of course as we know the Olympics are once every four years Summer Games once every four years later and often for those athletes at the once in a lifetime experience which I think is one of the positive body image on the committee might be trying to save the game even if it can be seen at that so negative in so many ways I understand those who defame postpone right now but we'll get there give you that answer very soon and hopefully all athletes will remain safe while they're continuing to train professionals say they'll take the next month and figure things out the Olympics if delayed for twelve months wouldn't be the first event pushed to twenty twenty one the Dubai World Cup is off until

She gave Her his card and was like the Bachelor I want you to be on the Bachelorette so we went through the entire casting process and the thing that people don't realize about the casting processes it takes a very long time how long for me it was like four or five months like a very long time the vet you yet to meet a ton of people. Yeah it's like that we are. I'll get into that part or you down the road but like it just takes a long time in that win that Swatch of time. That window of time he ended up finding someone and basically called up was like hey listen. I met a girl and now he's married to her so look down but he's one of those guys that like never burns a bridge like he is friends with everyone he's ever met. Yes and so. This was like seven eight years ago. Well now it's longer 'cause it was like seven eight years ago. When he told me about an auditor radio show in Nashville. And I used to do this. Radio bit where. I would go on auditions for like stupid commercials. And I'm not an actor at all but it was like a funny bit that I would do with my co-host where we'd like run lines for like meow mix commercials. Yeah exactly and so. I'll so excited. At My meow. Mix Commercial or like by China paper plate commercial than I can read this and then so I would go and I would bomb intentionally because it wasn't about me. I didn't want to be an actor. It wasn't about me getting the part about me having the next day of like what you didn't get the paper plate commercial like you could like. How did you screw up the meow? Mix Line now assets myself all the time how did you? Yeah and so be inconsolable. And My co-host like berating. The and it was like a funny bit. We did so then I became single and my brother was like hey man. I've friends with this casting director for the Bachelorette. Do you want to meet with them? And I was like this is going to be the funniest radio bit. Ever because I'm going to be like to do. She focused on yes and Lo and behold not to do she. Just the right amount of do should. Did you go in with your normal level of Douche or did you add some extra to try to like to try to throw them off and try to get the whole big going I went in like Super Laze fare? So they It was at a hotel in Nashville. And I like was. I can't believe I did this at the time it was in assessing but it's it seems so big. Timea. I told them I said. Hey Listen I've got a morning show at this. Time is doing three shows as a morning show and then I have an afternoon drive show so I have a window of like eleven thirty to twelve thirty that I can do this. I have a hard out. Yeah and they were leg and they're like okay fine totally but in their minds who I think is you know. I think they knew your brother. And they were probably. Maybe he's the big Lebowski as well. Maybe I don't know so I go to this hotel and I get the lobby on the first guy because I have a heart out. Yeah so I go that. I'm wearing like a Jean Jacket. And like probably this exact shirt actually. It's probably this outfit but with Jean Jacket. Which I've seen you in a few times because you wear that to rehearse yes. I have a uniform so I get there and I look around and every guy is in a suit because in their minds. They're like I need to look like I'm supposed to look when I get out of a limo. Yes and I was like Oh Shit. I am under addressed for this. Don't you hate FM? Yeah no no but but but in my mind I'm like this is great like this is such great radio. I'm starting off so bad so So then they they call me up and they sit they sit you down in. It's kind of similar to this situation. Y YOU DOWN. And it was two female casting directors and they started asking me questions and they're like they're like first off. Why the hell do you got to leave at four in like five minutes and I have. I have a radio show and they're like oh great. Do your radio bit and luckily enough. I had done my morning show so I'd already had done like four bits. See good so I like just word vomited like the four bits. I had about like Justin Bieber. Peeing in a trash can and like how. That was the luckiest trash can ever know like. It was like some stupid like that and I had them at rolling laughing roles like this. I thought like I was thought I was being so like ridiculous ridiculous. I didn't care yes I will at. The time wasn't really trying to get on the show. I just thought like this would be a really funny radio. Yes but dying laughing and I remember afterwards. They're like so. What are you doing in March and April and I was like? I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow but Yeah no and they're like well. Maybe blocked that out. We need to see you in Los Angeles and I was like oh I guess I did. You made it to the next. So then they fly you out Los Angeles. And then you take a five hundred question. Ecology tests psyche. Val Okay by the way people don't realize which I think is think it's got. I think what they actually do as you take the psyche vow and they just have to say like in case someone goes rogue one that show they have to say what we talked about them and we tested them and they didn't seem crazy X Y and Z. I don't really think because I've seen some crazy people on reality shows yeah as that psyche will. Yeah where have you seen the questions? I was on a reality show so I had to take the psyche. Yeah we'll get to that later on keep on going with your story. Well the the questions of like do you want to be a park ranger. And they'll be like I don't want to be Park Ranger. Have you ever had feelings of hurting animals do do you exactly? Do you think that people are out to get you going to rethink the the Park Ranger question? When you hear things do they. Come from inside your. Hey do you hear voices? Which way is going there? I remember taking that. You're all alone in like the Sheraton by the LAX. And I was like. I don't know I'm scared out. Then you crazy maybe I do. WanNa kill the money by the way I had a girlfriend. Who went on bad girls club? This is before we knew a bad girls club was about. She was like one of the first girls. On one of the first seasons are the second season yeah and she was telling me about it and I was like. There's no way that they get on that. Show Nabi able to pass the saggy dow new out this bitch earth person in the house. Yeah because their birthday bells and whistles on like Oh. They're looking for crazy unstable. Yeah well I wasn't.
Her Dark Plans: Stacey Castor
"Talk about Stacey Castor. Who was born? Stacey Daniels and she was born in we'd sport which is a little town just twenty miles from Syracuse. Her Dad was a car salesman. Stacy had assistant brother named Darcy and Jamie off. Three of these kids went to school in the weeds. Port Public School System. His sister became a nurse. Her and her brother worked for large toy company. Now Stacy had plans to become a lawyer or maybe a paralegal but in his senior year in high school. She met and fell in love with twenty four year old guy and that kind of derailed all of her plans. It did so this guy. Is Mike Wallace? This was a good looking guy. Here's the life of every party. And he was the first guy who wasn't turned off by Stacy's height of six feet. Well in her mind yeah in her own. Mind our own mind. She felt like that was really not liked by the guys that she was that tall in. Uh this was a little bit of a strange situation anyway and not just because of the six seven eight year age difference. Mike had been married before he'd been married to Stacy's third cousin. Nancy I had to look up. What a third cousin meant and that is people who are related at the level of their great great grandparents. That's barely related. But anyway that's distant but she did know her. Yeah well I mean if you live in. The same area sure should be acquainted with absolutely now. That can time a little bit Nancy. Who was mixed first wife? She become pregnant with another guy's child in nineteen. Seventy nine is back when she and microbes seventeen so make an answer got married and they raised two children together. When was his stepdaughter renee? And they had a biological son James that Nancy and Mike's Marriage was just disaster. You know you could have kind of predicted that the coach you while they fought a lot and Mike was in and out of jail for his partying ways he had. Dui is and even had domestic violence charges so even though Mike had been abusive to her. Nancy always defended him and she would claim that he had a big heart but he was just raised in a family with some generational domestic violence so basically saying he was a product of his environment. well a lot of times. That's the case not always right right. Hopefully people can break away from that but I think it usually does take some self awareness and some therapy and it seems to me to be kind of an easy way out of things. Yeah you can say well. I'll blame it on my parents or my upbringing. Well it can be a cop out. Yeah for sure so after six years together. Nancy and Mike did get divorced. No big surprise there but it was just in time for Mike to fall in love with another high school senior and that was stacey he barks. O School. Seniors doesn't he. Yeah and it didn't matter if he was a high school senior anymore. He still liked them. Route so stacey and Mike Got Together he was working as a setup operator at mcquaid international. Pretty good job. This company manufactured Heating Cooling and building management equipment right in nearby Auburn so within minutes of meeting Mike. Stacey was already planning a life with him she wanted a wedding honeymoon and then a family with him and she thought they would spend the rest of their lives together but then stacy found out that she was pregnant just months after first. Having sex with Mike and Mike decided he wasn't interested in having another child so he broke up with stacy now of course that didn't stop her from having his child but she lived at home with their parents and she gave birth to her daughter. Ashley. According to friends and family stacy was a good mom in the beginning at least. She was madly in love with her baby. She was inseparable with Ashley and gave her all of her attention. And his Ashley grows up. We're going to see that Ashley. Her mother were really best friends to me. That's not the way to raise a child. Yeah but anyway well. Is there a way to be friends and still be the the parent line through definitely is yeah but if you stop being the parent and your only friend that's bad? I agree or if you're the best friend true true it's really not healthy for the Child. The child needs to go out and make their own friends with their pierce right. Got It but anyway. Stacy found out as many women do that. The bad boy party personality that had attracted her to her baby's father was really a negative when it came to settling down and raising a family together because Mike like to drink and go out with his friends but she was really into him and she didn't give up. She kept seeing Mike showering him with love and attention. And Eventually Mike Did Propose and gave Stacey and engagement ring and she was so happy here. If you look at the photos from Stacey Mike's Wedding Mike Looks Pretty happy pretty carefree. He had that thick dirty blond hair. Kinda longish big huge substantial mullet. Yeah that was one of those straight hair. Mullets that hangs down to like the shoulder. Blades serious mullet. Those were good And Stacey was thrilled about how the wedding when how everyone looked then. The wedding took place in her family home and there are lots of friends there to see her in her. A beautiful wedding dress. Yes so looks like everything's happily ever after to stacy at this point at this point and even with his ex wife. Nancy they gotta lock. Yeah they did. They even invited Nancy and her two kids over for Christmas. One year and Nancy was welcomed to drop off her kids with stacy and Mike for visits in their home. Mike had been in charge and quite abusive in his relationship with the Ansi but she noticed that he was very different with stacy. Stacy was the one in charge in her house. You know wearing the pants as they say and Mike really toed the line. Stacey was sharp young woman really pretty smart and she knew what she wanted to get done and she did it. Still Mike like to go out drinking and he even did some drugs but it seemed like he was really good to stacey when he was home. Andy worked so he provided okay. I don't know yeah. I think there's still some difficulties if he really likes to go out and drink do drugs matter how he is does wife. When he's home right. Sure Yeah but there's no doubt anyone's mind back. Then that stacy was really in love with Mike. Oh absolutely mean to her. He was like a teen idol and she had a crush on him even after they'd been married for years also. Everyone agreed that Mike adored stacey so even though things weren't perfect it seemed to be working for a while but then now three years after Ashley was born. They had a second daughter named her. Bree now Mike Call Bree his little princess and it was obvious that he preferred gre- over Ashley now. This is kind of strange because he fathered apparently fathered both children right betsy. Some people started to question. If you know maybe might doesn't think he's Ashley's father because we know that one of the two children that he had with Nancy when it had been conceived with another man so maybe he remembered that and showed some coldness towards Ashley. Yeah maybe it was even not even a conscious thing right but later on. Stacey would say that Mike's Preference for bree was very hurtful to Ashley that there was an obvious lack of emotion between Mike and his oldest daughter so obvious that she even pointed it out and family photos. Stacey said that she tried to compensate for the lack of fatherly. Love by spending as much time with Ashley as possible so their relationship really went beyond that of a mother and a daughter and they were more like best friends. But you know Ashley didn't remember it that way. She didn't remember feeling rejected by her. Dad are seeing him prefer her sister. She had happy memories of her dad from when she embry were little girls. So when we think about this when we go into talking about her crimes we might realize that. Stacy was kind of playing this up for her own reasons. If share so when stacy and my gut married she worked as an ambulance. Dispatcher and Mike was a mechanic they managed but they didn't have an excessive amount of money didn't do vacation sir other big indulgences. They lived in a two story house near the junior high and high schools in a nice working class neighborhood Mike Stepdaughter. Renee moved in with them now. Rene was pretty rebellious at this point. She was getting into trouble. Nancy Thought Mike might be able to straighten her out. But that didn't happen. Rene continue to have problems and it became apparent that this living situation wasn't gonNA work out. Stacey insisted that rene go back to her mother's house in her mind she was a bed influence on the other kids Ashley and Bree. Yes as she was definitely giving preference to her own biological daughters. Yeah definitely but rene really remembered her time with the Wallace family quite fondly. She had been growing up in trailers with her mom and the Wallace House. Even though wasn't great was okay. After Stacy sent her away she felt hurt and rejected and there was no further contact in fact she never saw Mike again. And she didn't see Stacy Ashley. And Bree until Mike's funeral by the time Ashley a preteen. The marriage is on the rocks. Both Mike and Stacey had been unfaithful to each other. They fought
David Heinemeier Hansson | A Different Lens on Work
"So a lot of different places on touchdown with you in different parts of life can parts of work were hanging out in La. You're in malvern. You've been here for a long time worn in Denmark and sounds like also had an interesting relationship with technology when you really really young got a computer but this I that eventually you adrift you. It wasn't your jam at all in the early days. No it wasn't I mean I was always into computers like I'm a first computer six years old but all of my early childhood exposure to computers for about Video Games. They weren't about sort of what goes on inside a computer. I wasn't like a geek in that sense I didn't really care that much. It was all about. Hey I really like video games. I WANNA play more video games. Get MORE VIDEO Games. Got Into video game journalism to get more video games because they couldn't afford them. And Hey if you review them they send them to you for free or actually in my case when I started. They didn't even send you for free. I would just a good onto my local video game store. How would ask? Hey can I borrow some games? I Like I review game. How Old Regan's I think when I started maybe I was like fourteen fifteen year. Old Kid walking. Hey can I borrow Hobo over tickets? Promise I'll bring them back and the guy was looking at me like what? But then I found this one guy who himself had done some journalism or something or writing of some kind is a mix store that had both hip hop dj gear and then they also sold video games and this guy has written something like just a a dasan of this kid to walk in and say hey. Can I borrow your games? He lent me a couple of games. Actually got to be good friends over the years and that'll let into and finally publishing on the Internet which was let let me to the web and let me to essentially get back into computers from a perspective of using them to build stuff because ever is really just using them to play video games. Play more games such a big video game fan but eventually it ended up that using computers to make things was more interesting. It just took a while I mean and this was also at a time where Home computers were. I mean they're not what they are now like this timers like you know sixty four K. Eight hundred twenty eight K. of Ravin little floppy disks or maybe even a cassette player. So when you talk about playing games this is sort of like an entirely different universe to what people think about. It really isn't. It was funny because in those days the way video games disputed at least sort of the sort of small games. They were actually written down at the back of the magazines. I had the game. The Code Code was listed out. It was like two pages of very dense coat. And you have to type it in yourself. That's amazing and I did that. And it would take like two hours to type it in and at that stage. I didn't know English. I was just sort of Danish kid. Like what six seven eight years old didn't know English and of course I got it wrong and programming is just such a unforgiving you have one comma wrong and the thing just doesn't work and you have no idea why so. That was kind of frustrating years but that was the computer the Commodore Sixty four which was the main machine back. Then one megahertz right like that's not an etc as saturation the CPU literally one herds. It's amazing I remember. I computer in our home. I think that even a little bit. Before that was Radio Shack. They had the trs. Eighty quote trash. Eighty and you had to hook up this external cassette deck and hope you got the volume right so you record it something. It actually was. You could play it back and get something. That wasn't total gibberish. I remember that because this was so so the era of when I started playing video games they wouldn't buy games we shared. So you would copy the cassettes and there's always deportation as you copy them back and forth and at some point you'd be like well. This is the seventh copy. I don't know if it's GONNA make it. And then you could see on the screen when you're loading the game on Commodore Sixty Four. The screen would flash in very specific ways that had these bars of color. And you developed a sense of like is loading like you said getting the right things and it was just. It was just fascinating and I have those vivid images of the loading screens with the loading graphics. Which was just this random noise which reminded me of when I got into. Pbs's import systems. You'd have to modems and they'd played this very specific sound like. Could you imagine Geduhn good young and you could hear what a proper connection sounded like and thought that Tech Tilleke of computing. It's just something. I'm kind of sad we lost. There was just some analog dimension to it that was really satisfying. Yeah it's like it almost made a tactile and a certain way like century where it's also it's kind of funny that you bring that up because it's almost like you know now look at technology and all these. Apps and stuff like that and intermittent reinforcement is intentionally built into all this stuff but that was like this early hint of like is it going to or is is is completely a meltdown godly. Yeah I remember even with the cassette. So you'd have multiple games in some cassette. So you'd fast forward. I gotta get into like three minutes thirty two and sometimes wade would set up it. Be Right in between and you wouldn't know quite win to start the play but in for it it was magic or maybe it was magic maybe told Shit and you look back through. Nostalgic is like Oh that was great. Connect with a certain moment of your life But I mean what's interesting? Also that is. It seems like even the earliest days. It wasn't enough for you to just know what was happening on the surface like there was something in you know. I need to understand what's happening underneath the hood which has been this consistent. Theme will literally almost everything that you've done. I certainly would get very deep into something so video games for example. Even if it there was some parts of it that with the mechanics deal for Howard's old built but then there would also be the social aspect so for example if you'd like to play video games and you wanted a lot of idioms you kind of had to have friends and you had to have friends for me. That age were older. Who had access to different things who could get different things very sort of? You've got to work the crowd sense to it. You got to organize you gotta get into these communities. You got a dive under knees. You've got to find out. What make these people clicks us that? Hey I'm a what nine-year-old kit and I show up at some fourteen year old boys house and how do we connect? How do we connect over the fact that like otherwise? We don't really share a lot of things right and I had that for. I mean basically anti tie childhood that revolved around Video Games and computers. I was always thinking like who can teach me more and inevitably it be people. Were there other kids? Who were five? Six seven eight years older than me. I remember it's funny now living in the US and living in an environment where like you just don't see nine year olds walking the street right like that's just not a thing anymore but especially in La. Nobody walks right. Nobody wants to hold the criminalization of of Childhood and self driven child. When I was I think like eleven twelve years old. I'd go to these computer. Parties would like fifteen sixteen eighteen year old. And you're like you're just even trying to picture that image now and it's such a difficult image but it really enabled me to learn without speed limits that I was not confined as a eight year old to learn from other eight year olds because I mean really. That's a pretty slow way of learning. If you WANNA learn fast from someone who really knows a lot more than you do really have access to a lot more than what you have and I picked up on that very early that to go faster to suck in more. You had to deal with people who were multiple levels ahead of you and then just try real hard to keep up and that was just so much more fun
Jane and Ann Esselstyn Dish Up Some Kitchen Confidence
"Okay I am here with an S. Allston and Jane astles than we had an unseasoned. One of the plan. Strong podcast but surprisingly. This is the first time that I've had Jane on and I thought it would be appropriate that when I had Jane also have an-and because you guys are almost like tweedle tweedle dum many ways And it's really it's amazing to me to see how how you guys have become almost like best best friends like over the last couple years and I'm just like love to hear it from each of you like what. How would you describe your relationship now? We'll learn more next door neighbors and and we're working partners at times and John is by parents so their next door and and I feel so lucky in the parents that somehow I got an ESA as my parents like. What are the chances? And what look and then to be next door to them and to work with them and is just amazing. So I don't know how it's a weird to categorize parental child relationship as best frenzy. But it but we are totally companions. The luckiest thing was for us was when you guys move next door. That was just incredible. It's the way it should be. Have our kids? Are Your children? Grow Up? And weaken desert watched them. You know. Pick them up at school. It's been fantastic and cheer them on. It Swayed Jane. The best part is when Jane is was cooking and making all the recipes for your three books rip. Se and I were the recipients of ABC So many meals that. I didn't have to cook for the longest time. All right. It's funny how what a gift that is. Someone cooks for you. It is funny on well in some for people that don't know Jane spearheaded the the recipe sections in my last three books so plan strong than the engine to seven day rescue.

Vestiaire and Depop on the Rise of the Resale Economy
"We invited Max Bittner. Ceo of vascular collective and Marya RAGAS COPD pop to the voices twenty nine teen stage to speak with B. O. F. Sustainability correspondent. Sarah Kent about the rise of the resale economy. Neither you come from a fashion industry background so I wanted to stop by having both of you talk through way you come from and what drew you to this opportunity and Maria if you would like to kick off sure so late Hayden I also have to accept that I come from. The math made consulting World and I did that for about five years and then I jumped into the world Started at groupon. I did that for about five years. And then I I discovered depot actually before being part of the team Because I was looking for some vintage clothes and I was talking about the fact that he was a mobile first platform which five years ago. It was not that obvious Many companies wear addresses from web into mobile and so the fact that he was mobile. I the fact that they were using social media very smart way to build community to to a very very organic way I was redirected by it. So that's why he joined a Max. You had very strong equalness background but not in fashion. So why make the jump into this industry so I previously built a company called Lozada in Southeast Asia which was ECOMMERCE general merchandise? We are actually terribly bad at fashion and was one of my obsession for a long time and I really failed miserably. Added and after selling the company TATY BABA. I was looking for opportunities moving back to Europe. In vecchio opportunity came out of nowhere after I didn't know the company understood the concept of retail. But I've been in such a tunnel for the last seven eight years that I didn't have time to digest it but what fascinated me when I looked at the business in kind of engaged with with Moore was the incredible emotional connection between the buyers and the sellers and the products in the brands and the engagement with the platform and coming from Asia. This whole concept of community social engagement is is such a big part of ECOMMERCE and I felt that you know. Of course you have pioneers like the pope driving that in Europe but the rest of the environment was still heavily Amazon Dogma ties about a surge after card filters efficiently as possible. You know the emotional connection of of you know not much so I felt this was an incredibly exciting but and you know living in a world where we all ask ourselves what to do. It seemed like an amazing opportunity to actually run a business. Which core kind of fundamental is built on sustainability is built on on circularity? So you know I looked at what the business was good at and I think the stairs and amazing fashion. Dna A great brand amazing supply and a look at what could be improved with my background on Scaling and Tech Company and I felt the combination was an amazing one. Utah Utah Johnson. Very topical points this Stain Ability. The power of community all of which kind of encapsulated in recall. Mus Is it that that's helping to drive this market now. All Maria water. What is driving the growth? We're seeing and resell the moment So I think there's there's three things that are driving. Industry one is definitely a consumer behavior change towards Secondhand again five years ago it was hard to to believe that there was gonna be in a way you think about the next generation more than fifty percent are already buying secondhand or concealing to Isaac and hunting the near future so this is something that five years ago it was really hard to to conceive. the second thing is the fact that sicken sick and heights more accessible and so our consumer supressive by default so allowing people to buy high quality items at a lower price is definitely something very attractive for consumers and lastly the proliferation of all impact from slightly Bob and respective it's allowing a basic concentration of inventory at digitally military that allows consumers to have more choice in the case of of depot. I think the driver has been more and driven by our core audience so ninety percents of our users are under the age of twenty six. So they're very young and they are looking for for ways to socialize. That are different to the ones of all of the generation so again The promoted social media. Because that's their mobile natives. And they they do that. Also for fashion dates so for us will go a community. You see that the fact that the pope is social platform social marketplace. It has basically make the business to grow faster and getting Organic Way. And then secondly the second thing that our audience wants is to make money and so we are able to provide a platform that makes it very easy for them to sell those items and to make money as a result so as a consequence you you have very vibrant community are very engaged users that are super passionate about fashion and they are actually in the day making secondhand cool which again contributes to making the resale platform. I mean the the research will go faster. And that's that's the has a slightly different beast as a luxury product. It's more it's an older consumer. Is it the same drivers the flight northing happy? You remembered all the statistics because keeps forgetting them but to add to that. I think there's one or two points which are allowing us as a business to thrive. I think the first one is that that from the outside the fashion industry in some sort of way mirrors. What's happening in society? Where you know. The rich get richer and the luxury players are chasing them up. The stairs might use the example of being also consultant in the past. Having to buy suits choice back then was buying Hugo boss suits. I'm German so that's what I have to wear as a German and buying food which I couldn't afford the time in at the time is any suit would cost like eight hundred fifty euros nine euros now. Sued cost two thousand five hundred euros and on the bottom end. You know you have the parts of side which are struggling and fast fashion becoming cheaper and cheaper to to serve those needs and you have this forgotten middle class. You know which in the past could afford I suit is bag a nice night in a in a nice hotel but a lot of that has become out of reach because the industry defines itself by becoming more and more exclusive and you know being some sort of a hard to reach and so I think the opportunity frosties is absolutely to defend ourselves and make a lot of these beautiful products accessible in some sort of way in finding the right owner for the right product and the right time in their life cycle. So I think that's two points and I'm sure you'll both happily talk about how great this market is and the opportunities there for the next fifteen minutes. Let's talk a little bit about the challenges as well on the luxury side. Everyone will be aware of the criticisms leveled against the Rio recently in terms of the problems with their authentication problem. Max with Vesti Eras. Call capacitor in the space. How damaging are those allegations the credibility of the entire luxury resale market? And how big a challenge is authentication. You know I'm I'm not going to hide behind. This was my competitor. You know I think you will find the same criticism against this year am out there. I think we do a lot to improve every single day and you know we face our challenges being fast growing company to to scale of every process that we make as much as we can so so. We're not perfect. We try to perfect. We try to improve every day. I think the the two three things to that I really want to point out is Frost at our cores is the trust in our community and the trust that community gifts to each other and towards us and if things in that in these processes breakdown You know we really see all as a platform to step in and say okay something wrong. We'll take care of it in. The consumers need to reach out to us and we will fix it and we tried to learn from every one of these mistakes every single time they happen and I think the second one is that we have this community. We have people we trust. These people have a history on us and I think it's our job as a platform in the future to make that history much more transparent and and you know bring people together and but let's not distract from the things that we do well. I think it's very easy for for new business models like ours who go like the speed that we do to point out the small things which go wrong you know. I would love people to really focus on on the good we bring. I think we are fundamentally at Harvard business. Which does something about sustainability and circularity? And that's a lot more than you know. Trucking in forty trees to fashion show in saying

No we are although I could talk to you about Hans Fictional the rest of the time that we have together. Dr Painting is a professor and author posture preacher. He's written a number of books. He has a friend to the TV institute. Big Friend Friend town this week and teaching It's been my favorite time of the year. It's the most wonderful time of the year so even when we started the training program one of the hopes was bringing in outside speakers Experts in their field but are also churchman. Church women people who who want to to do theology or new tests ultimate cities at the highest level in the academy but can also translate to the local church and we didn't know it was gonNA work five years ago But we brought you back five times so it's worked. It's pretty well and you know this. Our students have just really gravitated towards you. And I've also seen you Avenue now for seven eight years or so You've always been a wonderful the teacher and a good friend. But even as you've been preaching more your church just seeing God used that to shape you into a just a beautiful person into theologian into a real. You're a real person. You know what I mean by the air you're dealing with substantive issues but you're also living In a broken world that we're living in and you're able to speak speak in both of those worlds. Yeah so grateful for that well. It's the teaching works because of hungry people could be up there doing my stick and if people were hungry angry it wouldn't be the same. It's an interaction and so you guys have created something so beautiful here of hungry people who are seeking the Lord and trying to figure out their lives and and so it's annoying to come in and it's been fun part of that so you've been in town this weekend speaking about the gospel of Matthew. And would you say that has been where your focus has been the last number of years. It sounds like yeah so I had the great privilege of doing a PhD. In Matthew hasn't stopped since and I always when I think about Matthew I always think what he says in an esoteric way in chapter. Thirteen that The scribe train for the Kingdom of Heaven continues to bring out of his treasure house else. Things old and new and so we've been studying this book of Matthew for two thousand years and they're still. I've been studying for twenty years and every time I read it I see do things. They didn't see it especially everytime I preach from it one of the things that I've been amazed even though not write articles or books teach. It's when I go go to preach a passage that I come to understand it I think in its fullest way. What do you think that is I wanted to ask you about the the process of rediscovery? So somebody's many. Listen to this like okay. I'm on my Bible Reading Plan and I've done it faithfully the last twenty years. I'm coming up on a book of the Bible. I've Read Twenty Times Thirty Times Forty Times. What is some of that process of rediscovery for you as you walk the same path over and over again? How like where does that come from? Does it never feel like it's just old hat like well. Of course you know. This is what what he's doing here in the Greek and this matthew. This is a typical matthew. Move that he's making right here. Like what does rediscovery somebody no no but but what is But what does it look like. What rediscovery look like? Somebody's spending lots of time in one book of the Bible. Yeah I I think it is a it is a literary and theological Michael masterpiece and the reason. We're still reading it. Two thousand years later is obviously. It's in the Bible. We believe it's inspired. But it is a masterpiece. The reason it's still worth worth reading over and over and and a great piece of literature is one that you've reread. I just wanted to read once. And the more so structured and I always remind students that it by the time matthews written this thing down. He's been pondering and praying and preaching teaching and rearranging and editing for like thirty years. Probably by the time. He's this is is his magnum opus. This is as great piece. Just like we would read You know brothers Karamazov for something over and over and you'll see things in it even more. This is a masterpiece. Sure piece and you never get tired of it. I think the other thing and this is why things I so appreciate about all you guys. I'm thinking of Jan.. How much joy her books to her experience? As a teacher feature I think you'd probably affirm this that when you go to teach you go from passive learning to active learning and so that's what I think is amazing that I'm teaching teaching and preaching for Matthew. That's when I come to understand it more. I think you guys build things into the institude. Were there reversing say. Yeah I think so. I think a big part of the reason why I never gets boring is because I'm an active reader passive reader
Memphis is giving the middle finger to the NCAA over James Wiseman's eligibility
"Of the weekend involves one of the biggest names in the sport fourth presumptive number one overall pick of the two thousand twenty NBA draft Memphis Freshman. James Wiseman instable a as you probably heard has inform Memphis that James Wiseman is quote likely in eligible among other things. The school announced Friday. That wise was going to be withheld from competition. Based on a rule interpretation issued by the incident this all being being tied to Penny Hardaway provided the Wiseman family with approximately eleven thousand five hundred dollars for the university called quote moving expenses. That's back when wiseman moved from Nashville. GO TO MEMPHIS in two thousand seventeen at the time. Penny Hardaway was the coach at East High School in Memphis Wiseman he ultimately enrolled at East High School in Memphis and this would be possible. NCWA regardless of the specifics. But what makes it an undeniable. NCWA issue is that in two thousand Seventeen Penny Hardaway was a memphis booster booster according to the way the NCAA defined such thing so what we have here if you destroy all the details away is a memphis. Booster providing a sizable amount of money to a five star. Prospect prospects mother to get the family to move to Memphis and then that five star prospect enrolled at the University of Memphis. There's just no logical way to argue. That's not against NCWA NCWA rules in Memphis again. Prepared to withhold. James Wiseman from competition as early as Friday afternoon. That's where we were. Why has been on the verge being held out of games but then later Friday afternoon wiseman and his attorney Leslie balanced went to court and got a temporary restraining order in Memphis in decided to allow wise men to play in Friday night's game against Illinois Chicago and for what it's worth Penny Hardaway is on record? He has said James Wiseman will continue to play next against Oregon important on on Tuesday night. Now some have suggested that the temporary restraining order force Memphis to play WII. That's just not true. No court can force a school or a coach to play a player. Even when as is good as James Wiseman Memphis simply opted to play James Wiseman for better or worse they bold move for many reasons it could lead to the Tigers first two games and any other Games Games wiseman plays in being vacated it could also lead to bigger instable issues because in the instabilities is Memphis is right now knowingly using a player it has been told hold is quote likely in eligible. So there's a lot to unpack here. Obviously but let's just start right here in Orlando what you think of Memphis is decision to play. James Wiseman under these circumstances because it is definitely not how schools typically handle these types of situations. I Love Memphis decision to play him. Because it makes for a fascinating standoff here. I Hate Memphis decision to play. Play him because my issue with this story. Perish is the institutions that have failed James Wiseman and how how he is likely to be on the wrong end of this and essentially serving as the only victim of this perhaps the Memphis program. I'm at large you know not having James Wiseman at some point in perpetuity for the remainder of the season. If we get to that point its final. Four hopes certainly take a masset but why why isn't who is trying to become the number of picking the two thousand twenty. NBA draft to be able to play for his adopted opted hometown. And here's my problem and take this where you may take it okay. Penny Hardaway becomes a booster twelve twelve years ago when the his Alma Mater ops to build hall of fame wing and his name and he is obviously a key part of that. I get all that okay. Now when that my issues intention here when that happens Penny Hardaway becomes booster. James Wiseman is there's no even real. I thought that who ever played college basketball. That point seven eight years old so then Penny Hardaway eventually gets into the coaching business. And it's been well documented community many places as to why he became a coach. That's actually a very inspirational ernest kind of story. At the grassroots level and at the high school level then James James Wiseman develops into a number one type prospect in his class wild playing on the other side of the same but while playing in Nashville so the family is moved from Nashville to Memphis. For a number of reasons. You can be cynical about it and I would encourage that But one of them Apparently because Weisman sister attended the University of Memphis Penny Hardaway agrees to help pay the moving fees as a side note It does not cost eleven thousand dollars to move all your stuff from one place to another. That is an exorbitant amount of money. And I'm sure the particular details as to Penny Hardaway providing that money what it really went to aside for moving. I'm sure those have been talked about at length and I would assume receipts have been provided. Perhaps they haven't perhaps it's a major major sticking point with this case because that is a significant amount of money we are told James Wiseman is not privy to any of this information. Now the fights against this by saying doesn't matter because and we've talked about you know these kinds of situations overall these overarching situations at Sylvia's okay specifically at Kansas. He was going to be sad for two years for not knowing what was happening and reduced it to just basically essentially once and that's why he's Villa Kansas now but regardless when that happens in two thousand seventeen gene penny hardaway is not even a candidate for the Memphis job. Tubby Smith is coaching. Penny Hardaway's coaching high school in Tennessee. The issue I have with the instability doubly ruling. The way it's ruled here is the circumstances that surrounded all of this. I think are unfairly putting James Wise Men's eligibility ability. I don't even know if I WANNA say up for debate Peres because in the eyes of the it's not for debate in fact does give you an idea via of how pissed off. The instable is in the middle of Memphis game on Friday night. And what a crazy night that was parish was in the studio for. CBS Sports Network. It says is. The University of Memphis was notified. The James Wiseman is likely ineligible. The university chose to play him and ultimately is responsible for ensuring its student. Athletes are eligible to play. That's not a common move. By the way in the midst of these cases the organization's general stance is that. It has no statement on ongoing cases. So whomever whomever cleared that is obviously really ticked off that Weisman and his legal representation. Who for my he's Leslie Ball and I know it's Balan F that he's he's Leslie Isley Baldwin and he's incredible and hoping turned around for Wiseman in the right way? I understand the way the rules are written. I have a problem with all of these circumstances affecting Weisman the way they have and I have an issue with penny and what he may or may not have told MEMPHIS MEMPHIS may or may not have known. Because here's the other deal because because this became an issue in the state of Tennessee and I'm kind of speaking back at this with pairs pairs knows all of this. Obviously he's he's talked about it for two years on his radio. Show the details of of this exact thing. We're known to the point where wiseman actually went to the court to get a restraining order to give him eligible in the first place at the high school level. So what I need to know from the standpoint is when when Wiseman was apparently cleared in May of two thousand nineteen when he still had the option to play wherever he wanted most notably Kentucky. If he wasn't gonNA play at Memphis why was he cleared. What are the what he did not know? Because here's my deal if the NC double A.. New All of this if it knew all live this and cleared him and then someone came back in late. October and said oopsy are bad or by the way we might have just missed this dangling thread on no take backs. Wise Men should not suspended over this if all of the details have been provided and I have to. Eileen I lean to believe that they have given that they went through this at the high school level. That Penny Hardaway given who he he is when Memphis brought him in when they knew his connections to all of these different kinds of players. I cannot believe there would be so much unaccountability laziness oversight on this matter. I have to believe all of this stuff was disclosed. If it wasn't to be clear if this was not disclosed Penny Hardaway knew of this and did not tell his employer employer. Then there's a real case against Weisman as much as it sucks but I am. I am opting to believe that all of this stuff was known and provided I to Memphis this and then theoretically cannot be so stupid not to have realized that the number one player in his class did not have this benefit provided to them. That's why I've got the problem if you told them took them. I'm glad you took it there because this is still a point of confusion as it relates to this specific case because if you read the lawsuit that James Wiseman has filed and certainly talk to people who are arguing that side of it. What they they will tell you is that the incidentally cleared and then they just decided to rolling ineligible just you know new information? They just changed their mind and and that may be true. At least I can't tell you it's not true but what I can tell you is it's definitely not the way Memphis. Explain the situation when it released a statement Friday night. I don't know if you saw that. But the statement the university released reads this way after a joint standard eligibility review by the university and the instable As is common for all high profile incoming student athletes James Wiseman Iceland was declared eligible by the instability in May two thousand nine hundred nine however based on information that necessitated a deeper investigation. The university began to work alongside aside the instability in investigating the matter after several months of interviews and after a review of documentation it was determined that in the summer of two thousand seventeen while Wiseman was a a high school student and Prospective Student Athlete Penny Hardaway provided eleven thousand five hundred dollars in moving expenses to assist the wiseman family in the relocation to Memphis unbeknownst to wisemen end of statement so again the lawsuit suggest that the NC Double A. changed its mind but the university statement doesn't suggest that at all what the incident delayed statement said. I mean what what Memphis statement says is listen. We did the initial eligibility review. Everything was cool. He was eligible but then based on information that necessitated a deeper investigation. So after this happened there was information. Asian that necessitated a deeper investigation and we worked on that and then after several months of interviews and after we review of documentation it was is determined that the summer of that in the summer of two thousand Seventeen Penny Hardaway provided eleven thousand.
Nike, ServiceNow and SAP CEOs play a game of musical chairs
"Soon because Tuesday morning under armor announced Kevin Plank is stepping down as CEO in January and then later in the day on Tuesday sort of late after a new Nike announced that CEO Mark Parker also stepping down in January he's going to be replaced by John Donahoe who is a Ward member at Nike he is also the CEO of Software Company called service now so he'll be he's been CEO there for nearly three years he's going to be leaving and and Bill McDermott who a couple of weeks ago stepped down or was forced out depending on which version of events you decide to believe he left sap after being CEO for nearly a decade he's now going to be the CEO service now so the musical chairs continuous. Let's let's start with Nike and shares down a little bit on the news and probably not a surprise when you consider Parker's been running this company since two thousand six and if you're a shareholder her under his tenure you have done very very well Oh yeah you're you're quite happy so parker was the second CEO at at Nike following tonight and he took over in two thousand six but there's probably been some I know there have been rumors at least that CEO succession at Nike is Being Thought About for instance three years ago after China chief Michael Sperling was promoted to President Product Marketing and that was his fifth promotion in ninety here so he's moving up the ranks pretty quickly people were wondering Oh is he being groomed as as the next successor but there was also C. C. O. exp Bronx and Brand President Trevor Edwards and the latter man gentleman especially with seen as as the primary contender but then a couple of years ago Edwards was forced out in March of two thousand eighteen amid amid allegations of inappropriate behavior and will leave it at that so Parker's a comment yes Yesterday during an interview that hey this has been months in the planning you don't do this just a couple of weeks is probably true but I'm I'm kind of wondering what the timing has to do with I mean under armor announces a plank stepping down and he says Oh maybe we want to get on that news to or is it more related to the drug doping thing that's I've been coming out and whether Parker knew about it or not and the speculation there or is it just hey today just happen to be the same day that all this other stuff was coming up yeah and and the drug doping thing that you mentioned that's a relief to Alberta Salazar coach ty did Nike over the last few weeks some stories have come out about that and then and then and the extent to which Parker knew about that so some some questions around that I find the timing fascinating because I just thought there's no way or you're going to have a very our time convincing me that this is a coincidence I mean all things being equal because Nike has been the clear leader in the category for so long and even plank has been very clear in his time at under armor you know running the company he was gunning for Nike the whole time right in most situations I would believe that under armor maybe got wind of this and they moved up their announcement and actually think in this situation I think it's the reverse I think that Nike may have just decided you know what we're gonNA announce this later this week or maybe we're we're going to tie to our earnings report you know what let's just do this right now so maybe when plank says okay I'm out in Percocet yes score column win column there we go so let's talk about Donohoe for a second I don't know a ton about him what I do We know is that his experience as an executive is very much in the tech space as I may have service now software company he was an executive at Ebay who is the CEO of EIB. Yeah the chief executive for years and made a bunch of acquisitions onto there so I think if you are a Nike shareholder again it's only down a couple of percentage points I don't think that's necessarily a knock on Donohoe I think that's more just Parker's done such a great job it's it's it's natural to see a trump a little bit but I think if you're if you're looking at the elevations donohoe it's it's with an eye towards his tech experience and Nike increasingly relying on technology to move product right and and and I think again the narrative is that that's why the White was named he has been a director for a couple of years at Nike who was the CEO of Ebay for seven eight years until Twenty fifteen is been the chairman pal he oversaw the spinoff of pay pal from Ebay but that was kind of forced upon him and Ebay by Carl ICAHN activision activision active what what's the word activism activism thank you but he's expected to come into Nike and use his tech savvy to probably continue the digital transformation that has really been driving some good results for Nike They've got their Nike plus membership they're getting being able to get more personalized in their advertising for that and they're seeing some big up responses to that and along with that awesome product tracking and inventory management a lot a lot of good things are happening with Nike from a Tech Perspective and I think Donna who's GonNa continue that maybe a better indicator Keke shareholders is what's happening with shares of service now because that's down about ten percent since it was announced go the donnas leaving let's move on to another great quarter for AAA same store sales such a crucial metric for any restaurant out there up eleven percent rent nearly two percentage points higher than expected the stock is down close to five percent today is that just because of the run that it has had to this point because it's been on an amazing tear it could be that well let me hit some of the points and then connect to that there were other numbers so cops I think that was the big I number and really kind of surprised eleven percent is huge when your restaurant seven and a half percent of that was on transactions that's more people buy more stuff three and a half percent was on average check with about two and a half of that coming from price increases last year but the fact that they're getting more digital orders and digital orders tend to be larger sized checks for that and that's the the present com is higher than what they've had all year q one ten percent Kutu now eleven present Q. Three though this little certainly make next to your harder harder to beat but that aside the digital thing is really going up they sought eighty eight percent increase in sales of digital orders and now there's like eighteen percent of total sales so that's pretty good and the rewards club is is really beginning to play into that and so they also said they're going to Open some more of there drive through and literally that's drive through you don't stop to order you just try to go and pick up pick up the stuff and that's tied into their didn't digital sales as well but why are the shares down five percent maybe it's well the the the the company's shares have had a fantastic runner up twenty percent since the any of June maybe investors saying hey that was a great quarter thank you very much and could take some money off the table maybe it's a bunch of the analyst not raising their their expectations AH bunch of analysts came out with higher price targets but nobody actually moved there from hold to outperform or market perform. to overweight or whatever the languages but you look at the job that Brian Nickel has done as CEO and Yeah quarter after quarter Cipolla has delivered under his leadership and it may be that the stock has entered that territory that we see from time to time when businesses have a great the three year run and it's essentially this was a phenomenal quarter but it wasn't perfect because now because we're greedy we wanna see you beating on everything and Radi race and guidance headed almost did meet on everything but actually I think I know why the shares were down it was announced that they're limited time Carne Asada meat product it is going to run off November so everyone's disappointed angry and where do you think and again let me just catch Thanks I don't think there's any pressure whatsoever on Brian Nichols given the job that he's done but I'm curious where you think the growth for AAA comes over the next three years because there was a point in this business history when they were doing so well with the namesake concept that people were looking to the shop house Asian cuisine concept as that's where future growth is gonNA come from we're not going to get as many locations as we have AAA but we're going to get you know a few hundred those have essentially been closed down so do they begin to resurrect some of those ideas or do you think it's just more digital more locations and finding ways to bump up the average ticket price I don't think they're going to go into other concepts quite yet of given their experience they're probably a little gun shy right there that might come down that might come to pass down the road I think they're going to push more into digital and get more people ordering in so they can just walk in and walk out and pick up their stuff that as well as the drive through what they call chip Elaine get terrible name right actually it's kind of funny but I mean reaction it's it's it's it's no worse than the estimate forces on us getting the name aside I think that's going to be a really good driver for the company and that means they can open a second product line of just fulfilling orders through that go through more digital sales and as well as having more customers come through the doors so I think that's where the growth is going to be trial various things Carne Asada apparently did very well well are they going to bring in some breakfast at some point probably so I think they're going to continue expanding what they're working on focusing on their cordial police thing and then maybe a few years down the road might start thinking about other concept's
Part 3: Jeff Siegel, Ed DeRosa, James Scully
"Jeff Good Morning Good morning how you doing excellent and lots to digest. We've already talked to the J ribbon earlier this morning morning. I want to get your take on what went on about the racist we discussed last week including the the upset which I think is less shocking talking than people. The people are are feeling. It didn't seem upon further review that Mongolian groom was all that impossible well. He wants to me I mean I thought he'd run well but I I really I'd watch McKinsey working. I thought he was ready to roll. Oh and just looking at the form I thought that he would win and he he moved to the top of the stretch like he was going to pounce and then he kind of flat out and I I always had a little sense of doubt that maybe he wasn't quite amount of quarterhorse but this is only a mile and they and I was disappointed and I think Bob Baffert with two do I really was an he's made in announcement that he's going to replace my Smith with a writer that we don't know who's going to be. I'm sure all the the agents are kind of hanging around trying to throw their hat in the ring but yeah I mean I it was I mean it's it's just it's the nature of the game here. We've you see this happen a lot and perhaps the real the real important racist coming up a month from now but if you've you know food for thought as to whether or not the horse that we also at least I thought was the number one older horse in the country. is really that much better than everybody else and amount of quarter. I think it's anybody's game now fold in as well the the result at the Jockey Club Gold Cup and what did you think of the takedown and who do you favor of the two of them coming out west well. I'll tell you what that I I was kind of hoping that it didn't come down and even I thought the three year old is going to win the race going in and what am I ran well. I thought he I thought he had every chance to get by but it was a tough. It's tough to lose a race lightweight like way when push came to shove and unfortunately for her also did come to push he he hung in there I think both both of those are deserving the universal. I'd come already come out west a winner racer over the summer so we subtract and so they'll meet again it's I I. I was talking about this. The other day was Zoe on our podcast and we we were pretty much not baffled. I don't think that's the way but kind of open to in trying to figure out who might win the plastic doors so many possibilities now so many horses that look like they're capable title stepping up some of them that look good or maybe vulnerable so I duNNo. We'll be watching the next couple of three weeks to see who trains the best. Maybe maybe we can come up with a conclusion but right now now. It's really a mess we'll wait till they get the decisions. The final decisions horses like a late and late would add another wrinkle visit I think they're thinking mile and a quarter and the boys aren't that top much tougher for maybe the midnight DC would be if he ran against her again and and a mile an eighth in the in the the staff so that would that would certainly make an interesting well a couple of other thoughts jeff about last weekend the reasons we discussed filled D'Amato just a of magical a couple of days pee wee reese on Friday mirth and Cleopatra Strike in the Rodeo drive and the John Henry able to Geo Story. I keep coming back to it because what can you say and then Sunday Paradise Woods and I ask you the same question that I brought up up with Jay and I asked Sadler too Sadler Sheriff's the other day if she runs that race of the distaff she's she's a major major player and I know she's a notorious in and outer but I thought that was a terrific effort it was it was accomplished under under pristine conditions sitting right outside a speed horse with nobody all rounder nobody in front of her nobody beside her with kind of like a workout for but she did feel the deal as she finished strongly and she earned a beyer speed figure that was something like eight or nine points better than they were not that that means anything but bottom line is she ran really well now whether or not she can do that again I don't know if he pointed out not exactly your model of consistency and I thought maybe your best days were behind her but boy did she work well and I I I yeah I mean you have to go. You have to think that going into the dispatch. This definitely has a legitimate chance I mean if she decides to show up with a game the thing that we're going to start talking about Jeff when when when I'm at clockers corner and and we're watching horses work and when we analyzed the the XP TV workouts leading up to the race between you and Millie Ah Zoe is going to be fitness levels and the one thing you're not going to have to worry about John. The sheriff's Baffert and Sadler is is fitness of these horses on that racetrack and that's going to be a huge factor and I'm I'M GONNA keep referring to the east coast horses that went to del Elmar for the Pacific Classic and God drowned on that deep surface and Steve Asmussen asked me to his credit with with tenfold he learned his lesson and went out early with Mottola because he is not gonna get caught on that element he wants his horses. This is ready to travel over that surface and it's going to be something we we really focus on and then I'm sure in the recap you know after breeders Peter Scott. It's GONNA come up well down. Mars is eat but it's it's not it's not any deeper than in Santa Anita where this is not the old Santa Anita track backwards you know three quarters in eight and change all all day long I mean you have to be did fit to run on. This track is deep. You just tiring you you have to train over it. I think I think it really helps and yeah I think it's going to be very important to to to watch the works and I I do think it's going to be a great advantage for horses to get in early and get a beast of one or maybe even to work over the drag your possible because it's it's not it's it's tough. It's it's it. It's deeper than New York and Belmont Park is I'm convinced of that and I know Belmont to be called the fanny and all that but this track is is big heavy. I mean it's the faith it's safe and that's why they made it so deep but you've gotta get through it and you gotTa. That'd be fit well. Let's get set to look at the weekend and before we talk about Saturday any any day maker ideas for today well. You know it's yeah I mean I I did do a couple of San Anita and I can give the a little bit of an insight today's tough but I like the Philly name swirling in the fourth race she's not the favorite averaged five to two zero six two five in there she's a late running turf sprinter that that I that likes attending through force and they're starting to run five and a half now in the first we've got a couple now they extended the shootout there so she'd found five furlongs on this course a little stripe and she was hitting the boy and running well but just running out of room now she goes five and a half and I noticed in the few couple of five and a half long since we've had so far that the closers have a better chance and she's she's good enough to win. and I think that extra half for a long we'll give her the edge that she needs so I'm looking at number two swirling in the fourth race to kind of heightened me over for that's my play play today. It's an okay car not a great guard but I think we can we can get some value there because she's not going to be the favorite it's excellent all right swirling today and Let's let's go to the weekend and obviously the steak the steak side of things Let's talk about talk about the city of hope I because it it it really is intriguing and I brought up with Jay earlier. Jeff the mixing and matching of older horses. I mean really veteran in six seven eight year olds like synchrony and Ohio and Bolo and catapult facing off against some horses that may be emerging What's your angle in the studio? It's really hard. I handicap this this race and I came up with about four or five that on their best day could win. synchrony is intriguing to me I think he's intrinsically the best of the group but he doesn't have a lot of tactical speed and going a mile on this course even though he's running the tool aww theoretically he could maybe draft into the mid part of the mid packing and save the nangle out and get through he tends to give himself a lot to do and I remember when he came out here for the CBS del Mar last November. The same thing happened. Do that was sixteen. He fell back. He he had some traffic trouble he got. That's where we finished. Fuller Ronnie finished thirty one but but he didn't get there so I I like him at five to one at synchrony shipper I I hope he gets the trip. If he doesn't then you can make a case for a number of these. I mean looking for fifteen to one shot number four on your program. Aziz restrained vengeance. He's GonNa get loose in the lead and if he does that he can be dangerous. TAT upholds training really well but he's form doesn't look all that well you gotta go back to the Kilroy Mile Back in March the finding good but at least it was over this turf fourth and he could pop up Sadler. He's five to one the raises a bunch of the race basically is is a bunch. That's a five to one shots hoping for good luck but I think maybe if he gets through synchrony can win I wanted to I wanted to like River Boyne off the lay off and then John White made him four to one and that that cooled my ardor well you know I looked at him him and he was a very good three year old and he hasn't won at four and haven't made a lot of progress at least according to his numbers and he goes from practice and I'm looking elsewhere. Let's put it that way you know a to go back to an angle from last week as that in fact Jay also came up with and Dash the other filled D'Amato player and here's able to do who the things that just seem to be running for Jeff at at least from what we saw last week while they they ran for a golden gate when he was leading rider up there and I talked to them for a number of years actually we had horses up there and he he wrote for us always felt that he was good enough but he was kingpin up there era and then he decided to make the leap and I thought it might be tough for them but it really hasn't he's really falling favor with the with the horsemen down here and he's a strong writer but he's a good rider as far as and dishes concern. He's coming off a nice win. Del Mar.. He's obviously never beaten this this group although he did run second Mendelssohn and his racing debut of that matters which it doesn't that was way back in two thousand seventeen at the Curragh but but he's he's he's developing. He's he's coming around and the way the model is going. I mean I wouldn't put anything past him and especially in a race like this in which really there is no standout and anything can happen so hey why not wanting to watch a couple of other thoughts. what do you make of this chance Salat Omaha beach matchup the very very different set of three year olds against elders in the in the sprint championship wells twelve sheds lots four to five in the morning line because he's not only the fastest horse in the race in terms of numbers but he's also look controlling speed and he doesn't even have to go that fast my my concern was and it's kind of happened in the Jerkins a little bit then I know that the inside part of the wasn't particularly hit that day but they kinda slowdown down twenty three flat forty five and and he's fast horse and I think you gotta use his weapon and I think going three quarters. They don't have to worry too much about you. Know saving reading anything so I I would suspect he'll bust out there and go. He had a nice breeze over the track. I think Navarro did the right thing by bringing them out early and breezy had a half and forty. He's seven and one third fastest at sixty five last week and he lied did it. The right way looked like he was relaxed like he got over the track very very well so he's going to be it really hard for Omaha Beach the rundown although I my theory about Omaha beach is that he's always wanted to be a sprinter and because he was so good and all the money's going long long that Richard Mandella kept running them wrong and why wouldn't he won the rebel in the Arkansas Derby any may have even able to win the Kentucky Derby had come down with the trap Levada brought his only sprint race of his career only race of seven that he actually sprinted
A 16-year-old immigrant boy died in US custody. Officials are investigating.
"Federal officials are investigating the death of sixteen year old watermelon boy in the custody of health and human services last month. He died of a brain infection after crossing the southern border as an unaccompanied minor. This is the third death of a migrant child in US custody since December NPR's John Burnett has more the still unnamed teenager crossed from Mexico into El Paso, Texas on April nineteenth and was detained by the border patrol a statement from the US office of refugee resettlement, which is responsible for the care of migrant.

"seven eight years" Discussed on Rich Bitch
"As always love helping and I love answering your questions head to Instagram send the GM with any questions, you have on the marketing impact kademi, and I can't wait to see you inside. Oh, I can't wait to see at Peasley brave. So let's do. Must admit when I very very very started thinking about doing the podcast. And then I was thinking about shed just do solar upsides. Do interviews. The thought of interviewing you was one of the reasons why actually decided to do interviews because I was like if there is anyone I wanna dive date into how they built a personal brand it has to be years ration- episodes by gosh, you so that's so kind that makes me so happy. I love podcasting. And like, I told you before we jumped on its spent such a gift and not only is it so fun, but it's such an awesome to communicate with your audience. And I found you obviously on YouTube, and I immediately loved you. And so I think it's so cool that we're finally connecting. And it's like coming full circle for us. So I'm sure everyone knows who you are that he's listening to show because I have spoken about you so many times already. But if there is anyone that he's meeting you full the first time, you know, you've had such news barring story, I love all of the Joe on Facebook about. You know where you are. And we been, but you know, it feels like honestly had doused lifetimes. I'm gonna say just feels like being this story many different sections of your story. Can you just kind of walk through in briefly? How you got to wear unit from basically as you said a college dropout to a seven figure internet entrepreneur. Yeah. Absolutely. Yes. So in college is when I started a lot of the blogging a lot of putting myself out there. And I remember at the time people thinking this is silly. This is crazy how you actually going to monetize this who's doing this. I mean, seven eight years ago wasn't a trendy thing to have an online business and have a blog and to monetize that wasn't a thing. And now, obviously everybody in their grandma wants to do it. And so I just remember thinking, I don't know what it was. But I really good at forecasting. I love forecasting trends and social media and marketing aware things are going to go and what's going to happen. I could just feel it. I have a pulse to it. And I remember thinking the internet and social media is literally going to change how we consume. Information how we are entertained in. How transactions are made like I just knew it. I was a twenty years old. I said this is the future the future is that I'm going to be able to run an entire business from my laptop one day, and I will be served in healthy women around the world and people thought it was kooky. Obviously. And thought there's my space, and that's kind of cool. And yeah, this thing called Facebook just appeared what are you talking about? So I would share stuff on Facebook that was the platform that existed, and I thought why not treat it like a business? We started treaty. My Facebook like business in giving valuable fitness chips, health tips, and really using it as this free blog and a sense. In addition to blogging sharing articles, and I started doing freelance health writing and then had a food distribution company. So it's been definitely a lot of different endeavors that I've tried out. I was nutritionist. So I go through a lot of different things. I obviously left college early to finally pursue a lot of this. And I realized that there is this advantage to just jumping in and getting messy in college degree wasn't gonna be the golden ticket to getting clients. Or to learning how to brand and promote myself online. So I just just jumped it's very in my engineer to just if I'm not fully happier excited. I just leave a situation shown on. You're a true entrepreneur. I said I'm gonna go do what I actually wanted to because I'm super young life's really short. Why not do that? And it's been this really cool transition from health coaching out of business in life coaching. And now most of my coaching is around business and sales of helping women's shoe promote their work online..
"seven eight years" Discussed on The Adam Carolla Show
"Your insurance, and you live in extra seven seven eight years or something it's not bad. I have a theory about that. Which is that's a little insulting. But that's never stopped you before. Well, just a little. I'm up on stage burning calories and my wife right now. Oh like into spended animation all being Denver over the weekend. Burning some calories. My is kinda hang with the kids have a certain amount of life force, and you're just whipping three years faster. Yeah. Yeah. Stress. You know, what I mean too much travel too many too many early mornings too many early coal times for the great Elliott Gould. This is excellent for the people that are just listening in their cars. Believe me. I could descend we had Willie Nelson up here. And they'd be like. That's cool. Yeah. So I think you burn yourself out. I think guys I think I think the burn themselves out. I don't know. I don't know there's a biological thing. I think guys, and then you end up doing things like smoking and drinking and stuff like we just need to find some really lazy sedentary guys and find out how long they got him dad. How's he doing? He's sees one. And he's still going strong. Yeah. No, I explained to my dad and his kind of terms as I could the other day that he was like a a kind of a crappy car, but with almost no mileage on it. You know what I mean? Like, if you took a shimmy chevette and just put it up on blocks in your garage in nineteen Seventy-three. It's still a piece of shit, but it's brand new prince pristine, he's still has that new human smell. Yeah. He's not a good model. You know? He's not he's not a Ferrari or corvette. He's a shitty model. That's almost brand new because he's never been driven like in the in the snow. How do you take that Nuth? I told him he was why sort of told me this low mileage lot not a lot of days on the roof working out in the sun. Not a lot of super stressful business meetings..
Ex-Steelers OC Bruce Arians says Antonio Brown isn't same player Pittsburgh drafted
"Of Antonio Brown. And he was the offense coordinator at one point in time before leaving Pittsburgh. And then joining the staff of Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis, and then becoming the colts interim coach as he battled cancer Picado dead and successfully thanked out and it became the Arizona Cardinals head coach. And now as the town. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach. And that is Bruce Arians who said that he would not be interested in in Antonio Brown that he's too much of a diva. Antonio Brown is is not the same player. That the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted not physically we're talking about. Now. We're talking about everything else that comes along with Antonio Brown. Besides his ability to help you out and special teams and catch the football as an NFL wide receiver. Yeah. You know, Arians, basically said he's heard a lot of stories about as recent how he is speaking of Antonio Brown. And he said he plays as hot as anybody on Sunday. He practice really hard to. But you know, he's he's basically said as a paraphrasing. He's got him. He totally Brown's gotta make better decisions off the field as far as his punctuality and stuff like being being on time and whatnot. That's we said, so it's pretty interesting new head coach, you know, you've been in the broadcast booth for a year your new head coach of the box. This guy's a Steeler kinda. And I honestly coached them. It's you know, it's interesting to hear him say that about him. So it doesn't sound like Brown be going to Tampa Bay anytime soon. No. It doesn't sound like that. And that's the concern. I mean, you know, you can listen to every former NFL player, whether it be Jerry Rice and others say that he wants to be a San Francisco forty nine or that's great. I may it's great. And I do we both are in agreement TASR that Antonio Brown's gonna get traded this off season by the Pittsburgh Steelers. OB fascinating the team that he does go to am. I telling you that he's a losing player. Antonio Brown can help you in football games. But I will say that there's a lot of headaches now Brown and distractions. Yeah. Great point that Antonio Brown brings to the table that I don't know if there's a lot of NFL head coaches that are going to go out and look to embrace it. I really do. And that's the issue. I have with Brown is I don't want to deal with the nonsense. I really don't as Aaron said, you know, there's the little things that he doesn't do shop to shop to practice on time show up to meetings on time. You know, you're asked to run a hot return a walk-through run the run the hot read. What are you? What are you doing here? I mean, come on. Exactly nervous. I understand what you thought. I was going. I remember where it was funny. I mean, honestly, I it's not that difficult to it's not that difficult for Antonio Brown to handle his responsibilities. Yeah. I completely agree. I've never heard that before I was refunded. Agree with you to moves by. Yeah. Yeah. It was great. Yeah. Man. You know, I think you're going to get some coaches that are that will some teams that will wanna take that chance because how talented these days. We've all in all careers separately. You and I coming up in in all world separately. Right. I'll separate worlds. I'm sure you've come across the state me. All you've heard of guys that you may be going to do business. What guys or girls that you're going to do business? What that you've heard a lot of negativity about. And what's the first thing you said yourself? Well, I okay. This person's talented. I'm going to judge them for once. I get to know them. You give them that. You know what? I mean. I, you know, my wife always taught my son that you might hear things about someone judge them. I from how you judge them. Okay. Take defamation here. But a lot of times it could be hearsay on the advice. It is with this guy here. It's been a like him himself. He's combustible. He's tweeting stuff. Meaning it's Brown. He's been doing a lot of stuff. He's creating he's adding a ton of gasoline to these little fires that war with the Steelers in Hammond Tomlin. So if you're another coach, my point is that I do think some of the coaches or a coach will say, okay. This guy's really talented. He's a superstar. He's going to put as we going to put people to seats in the building. Okay. And and these stadiums role big he's a draw. He's going to draw people. He's a star. I so we've heard all this bad stuff about them. Just like Erin said, I've heard the stories a younger coach hypothetically might say. Well, I wanna to take that chance. I've heard the stories too. But I'm going to judge Antonio foot for what what I see we're going to take a chance on him. And that's what then you gotta hope for the best because he's gonna end up somewhere. Most you know, he's just too damn. And that's a fair way to fair way to look at it by also think that if you're having issues with a player friendly coach, Mike Tomlin, see, I I think there are guys that can't work and play for Bill Belichick. I think there are guys that can't work and play for other disciplinarians like a go back a couple years go back years ago. Bill Parcells right there. There are guys it just it just doesn't work. Now, if you can't play for a guy like Mike Tomlin, who's bent over backwards to placate you over the course of your career as you've changed with the success as your personality is changed with the money. All of that is well deserved because it's earned. I'm not talking about his personality all the money that comes his way. Tasr? I also have to look at that. Same of you have issues with Mike Tomlin, what the hell are you gonna do here? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, Mike cobblers a really is he's apprentice coach player friendly code. But there will he will be playing in the National Football League next year, you'll be making seventeen eighteen million dollars a year. God bless, but there's there's a lot. There are other guys as Bruce Arians said, I think there are a number coaches to say, I don't want daddy. Deal with that. I don't want that toxic person in your locker room. That's what you don't want. You know, you don't want that. Like, I'm a bills fan as you guys know, and I I love all young quarterback. And if we gotta Antonio Brown. I think that'd be amazing. Be awesome. But I would worry that he would like inadvertently mess. What the Josh out? I would worry about that. And I think that's a fair fair concern. But I think that a lot is coaches will judge him. For what they think and and meet with him Suez heads out, and let's just I just play a little bit on Antonio Brown side. He's been with the same organization right out of college. Right. So seven eight years, whatever it is sometimes difficult to paint. Sometimes you you'll be in better behavior. When rental the people a change of change of environment sometimes could help, and maybe that's what he needs, and maybe things will change. And may maybe
