Is MLB's Wave Of Injuries About To Get Even Worse?
"So you know heading into this sixty game, just sprint of a season, what was the expectation around baseball as far as pitcher injuries were concerned, they're definitely wasn't expectation that injuries would be up this year. We had trainers inside baseball and outside baseball pitchers being worried about the start and stop nature of shutting down and then starting back up again when they would normally be midseason form and then just not knowing how much the pictures were doing in their own time and there's There's even a question of liability of how much you can tell a pitcher to do because what if you tell them, they have to do since we're throwing program and then they contract the virus while they're doing that. So there was this weird dance of like we want you to stay on top of things, but do only as much as you can and please do something, but we're not telling you to do something. So everyone's sort of saw this coming well, so now. Two and a half weeks into the season what has been the reality pitcher injury people might think be up over time. It's been fairly steady for the last ten years except for this year. Basically right now, three times more pitchers have been injured than the average year and twice the worst year on record in the last ten years. So we're talking about the second day of the season until the eleventh day of the season, and it's up three times. We saw the closure in Toronto Giles, the starting. Starting, pitcher in Chicago Lopez. Ver- lander, we're starting to see more and more injuries plus we all the payroll he wants to say, it's just kind of the ramp up and the slowdown, and the fact that we didn't have a real spring training. Those things are true and that's probably a part of it. But the other thing is also true I. Think the pictures, some of them are throwing harder because it's a shorter season. You see jake degrom who already through really hard now sitting like ninety nine. News after the fastball away and quickly it's. Ninety, nine miles now, some serious fair. From the ground when we started tracking velocity in a real way of and around two thousand and two, the average starters. fastball was eighty nine miles an hour flash forward to. The average fastball for starting pitcher right now is ninety, three eight and the party. You throw the closer you throw to your maximum personal maximum more stress. You put on your elbow on top of that. There's a reliever usage problem right now, relievers are getting half the winds in baseball. They're pitching half the innings. They're pitching more innings than they've ever pitched starters are coming. Coming out in the fourth inning now, and that's putting more onus on the relievers who the short ramp-up wouldn't have meant as much relievers. But Twenty relievers are now on the deal right now, that weren't on day two. So I think the relievers shouldering the burden is part of the problem too.

Scot Prohaska on Total Athlete Development
"Scott. Welcome to the show. It's awesome to have you here Min. Banks. or It's something myself and my team we listened to you guys all the time on on just fly sports It's got a requirement for anybody that works for me to listen to your podcast though. They'll thank you. Yeah. It's awesome to have you. I mean, I know every time we've talked or I've I've just more and more intrigued by what you do. Because I, know you're not like you're not all over social media. You know you're not. You're but entire, I've just like I am. So I wish before I left. California could've stop by and really excited that chat about your. Your your insight into your system and how before we get into that I'm curious to like and I like getting into this for especially for people who have who see things in such an expansive way. But what was your gateway into coaching like what got you interested in it, and then what were some really big milestones in changing the way that you thought about your process? Yeah I, you know quick Reader's Digest version is. A pretty good athlete grown up back East right and had scholarship offers and was fortunate enough when I was in. Eighth Grade. To walk in the YMCA, fine little dungeon part where all the tough guys athletes working out in in. There was a level five Olympic lifting coach, and saw me with my little fitness books working out and said Hey kid Chimera. I WANNA teach you how to really train and while I was in eighth grade I started training with. Professional, athletes Olympic, athletes learning how to snatch clean squad sprint hurdles. Everything. So was a amazing experience for young kid be pulled into that kind of culture right away. Top properly. And then after. Know went into finance world business world is kinda miserable, but I was always getting fathers and guys played college football with call me when Scotty? Knew so much about this stuff. Helped me, I got a contract or my kids to a scholarship, teach him and I was doing it on the side and just fell in love with it and started growing in saw business opportunity, and then got called sportsmed guy in Toronto like the work I was doing and went up there and started running its clinic work with NHL guys in Canadian Olympians and stuff like that. It just grew from there kind of an organic way of. Loving it as a young young kid. Being, lucky to have someone mentor me and saw how it changed my life, and then fell into coaching. I feel like you're not the. For, some reason the finance and I didn't like it, and then again, the sports perform I. I've heard that story before I. Don't Mac Shakers on here had that too, and I feel like I've heard others. Maybe I do feel like that that like systems kinda thinking or do you think there's any thinking and finance that is helpful for sports is just make quincy dental you are. I think it's I think it's for competitors. We'll always WANNA look at measures of success. And that's kind of a natural thing. Until you realize I work, I work hard to get something and I realized I. Don't like it when I get here, that might not be success but I think finance is a challenging. Competitive. And and you know with detail and all these little nuances you can take and I think that attracts people to feel they wanna feel successful right, and then you realize you're sit in front of a computer all day long. Yeah. I. Can totally see that. Makes that makes sense I. You're speaking of success to ask the first thing. It's official question. I had and I just I guess, I, felt like starting with this rather than jumping right into the six lanes but. What is success in sport mean to you or? Yeah. So. What it used to meet. Right. So we all have these objectives and goals right, and we think that success when we meet that, we're going to be successful when feel successful yet, what happens when you need it? How long does they last for me? It lasts maybe five minutes and then I'm spending the next stuff in saying, okay. GotTa, start grinding now for the school and realizing that my daily experience wasn't great. So, success for me sport or any endeavor is your daily optimize experience that's sustainable over time. So if you're an athlete of Your Business Guy, whatever it is, if you're living your dream, you're loving your days, you're making a contribution feeling fulfilled. Ben. That's success to me. And so that's how I look at it when I get an athlete that. Wants to scholarship, but he's loving the training loving where he isn't high school having great teammates. Great relationships performing on the field. Every day is not future. You know obsessed all the time that successful to me. That makes sense with the process, right? Like. So often we just look at this. What's the goal? Win The Akron serve get the scholarship, but then, but then what I mean. Eventually it just. Eventually. There's think an emptiness. I mean, it's Nice Scholarships for sure. But at some point you get to the top and. Maybe realize you're on the wrong ladder something, but it's Where I've dealt with the most Olympic athletes after an Olympic year while they struggle. Mightily, they struggle with purpose with focus with what it all means. Up the disappointment of even if they got a medal, did feel as good as they thought. But the daily optimal experience their love in their life in the training or joining, they're enjoying the relationships are building that seems to be sustainable

Austin Jochum on Bringing the Training Session to Life
"So why? Want to say this. So how it was there a better way to spell your last name then or would there be like Italic so I can have people pronounce it correctly when they read the headline here. Yeah everybody thinks like it's A. Job looks like Josh right here. But if you have really gonNA spell, we probably with a Y Y Y. Que you or something like that since last name just totally jacked up. The I I'm not GonNa lie when saw I think maybe it was when you asked me to. Be On your podcast dry your podcast before I thought it was Josh. So I apologize I just wrote in my little notes I put. Okay You M. so hopefully that eleven maybe that'll resolve things a little bit. So just for everyone out there that'll. Thousand my that was my iteration. And that's where we just have to get to a point as a coach and a company where people in the not to say. That's one of our goals. People say Yoga the right way yeah. Yeah. That'd be good. Creative Project Austin. So I know one of the things that I really like about looking at your work is I. Know that want to know you're really creative coach always love I know this is GonNa be an awesome talk and I was curious you did football I think track a you're into strengthening conditioning. What what was your formation in your years as a college athlete and then your choice to become the type of coach that you are now? Yeah and I think it's funny that you say I'm a creative coach because as a player I was anti creative like from from the very day one. Started lifting in high school with Olympic lifts like straight. Olympic. Style. Monday Wednesday Friday, all we did was clean and jerk clean snatch, and then maybe some bench presents watts and just the differ variation of that and. I mastered swore by those for so many years. That's literally the only thing I ever did. If. We sprinted if we did anything maybe some ladders we did but. The entire program was Olympic lifts swear by it was awesome in highschool got really strong at that. Thought that was the answer. When into my first year college at Saint Thomas Football Kaikan on the field first day we actually lifted before we went on the field we lifted and I was like smoking these guys like smoking on cleaner jerk like doing. More than a lot of seniors on their all I'm here I arrived I'm sweet a freshman. Football, we go to the practice that day and I I my mind was blown I had no idea was happening speed the game was different. Everything was different I'm move to like a robot out on the field and just moved terribly and I started the. To all right, what's happening in the weight room is not what's happening on the field and I need to find a way to bridge that gap and that started the full journey and I think it is a journey because then it was west side stuff on my. All right not the Olympic stuff. Now it's west side. Now it's the powerlifting. Now it's some box. Johnson plow metrics advance to my are still stuck in that weight reminds set of. Bands the bar now GonNa be faster and it helped a little bit I moved just a little bit better. But I think we're just because I was destroying my body a little bit less than the weight room and I still a little bit slower on the field and it was just this journey than it was bilateral to single lateral. Then it was traffic training and this this full hodgepodge of things but never fully breaking out of the weight room mindset never breaking into the movement onset and by the time graduated. At Saint Thomas I had some athletic success on the field and. But it was in a way of I forced myself into a mold of athletic success. I plays Nose Guard and my movement options were very small and I was watching other players and I was doing a job that was required to do doing his thing. I'm field that is required to do but the game move fast for me everything move fast for me I had. Very little movement options I had one may maybe one pass rush move and I was good at the pass rush move. But I didn't have a lot of options people next left and right and me that works out in quotation worked out a lot less than me that they had way more options and that's really where I started to dive into how can I get more movement options for myself? How can I move better? How can I give my athletes the ability to? Now that you have a huge output, you're able to lift a bunch of weight. You're able to sprint really really fast to do all these things. How can we give you options to do this? How can we give you? Can we slow the game down a little bit for you and that's Kind of a little bit of where we started the journey of where Rats Day and hopefully the journey continues for the next ten to fifteen years I can look back at this podcast. About Austin but that's kind of the

Opening Day Arrives For The Los Angeles Dodgers
"We've got the Yankees and the dodgers in separate games in a doubleheader tonight, and they are the Vegas Co favorites this year for those who haven't seen it. What is your world series prediction at the end of this unprecedented sprint of a baseball season? Will Greenie everyone's talking about the Yankees and dodgers and look at their rosters and their stars in the Yankees Got Garrett Cole this off season. The dodgers got bets so I'm going Yankees dodgers and they're just so stacked greeny and Sprint with sixteen games. I'm not sure what's going to happen. There's a lot of crazy things that could happen in two thousand twenty. At those two teams on paper, you have to say they're the world series favorites and you mentioned bets here. Let's get back to him. I don't know that anyone was really expecting on the day before the season began for mookie Betts to sign a three hundred sixty five million dollar contract extension. What was your reaction? First of all good for mookie Betts he's one of the top players in the game at a historically great player, and he's getting to play for the LA dodgers one of the top teams when the top franchises in all of baseball and so men good for Mookie Betts and I. Think a lot of fans are gonNA. Say Oh, well, look you know. Baseball's going to be fine. Players were getting paid, but you really look at why the players were so upset. This off season, and in all these negotiations with the owners is that salaries have not been really increasing with the state of play in Major League Baseball. You look at revenues have pretty much triple. Since Alex Rodriguez's huge contract twenty years ago, franchise values are up seven x in the last twenty years, but yet our top players are still just kind of making a round the same. They've been making for decades, so mookie Betts got a great contract, but I think what you've seen is a lot of teams are spreading these deals out. He's got twelve years right there. Spreading these deals out to stay under the luxury tax. This luxury tax is a problem for major. League baseball players and MOOKIE got his, but a lot of players won't get. There's this off season.
David Grey on Barefoot Dynamics
"You're listening to another episode of just fly performance podcasts. It's awesome to have you guys here. I hope you're having a great week and thanks for tuning in. So, one of the ways I've been evolving in my journey as a coach has been in really getting into more of a joint base model over a muscle based model on not just in Rehab but also in performance. And I've learned this from several coaches, the I was was in the performance, Roman, that was working with the dairy embar, and then I got into it on the Rehab End with Gary Ward at the end of the day. And I'm sure you've seen this. As this podcast has gone along, but but starting with bio mechanics, starting with the model, by which the body organically and naturally moves and going there I, and if it's that's broken than fixing that I rather than. Working jumping to exercises and muscles I and it's the body is a beautiful thing. We learned so much from it in Moi's excited to dig into it and more of what it does. I'm thrilled to have David Gray back on the show David was our guest for episode one sixty. We talked a lot about the link between pro nation the. gluts, incomplete knee extension, sprinting and running and whole lot more. David is a Guy David is a bit of A. A conduit for me in the sense of he was my first exposure to get rewards Wedge System David I have been corresponding the last year on topics of the foot and pro nation. We oftentimes end up working with the same athletes in the online space together me of the performance end him on the Rehab and and bio mechanics, and it's really been an amazing learning experience for me so I wanted to get him back on the show this time. Flip initially flipping the script. We talked a lot about pro nation last time. And I wanted to start off the show actually addressing super nation, just because I think pro nation can prone as the big thing, but we. We don't just focus on one thing like it's not. The human body is not just about one thing or one side of the equation. If you listen to my podcast with Rocky Snyder recently, I had an experience where reducing the sensation of super. Nation in my foot had me feeling a little bit more like. Like my old, my springy high school self, the way that my feet were popping off the ground, and anyway I just wanted to get into that element of the foot, and we also get into a lot of ideas on on barefoot, and why actually we always say barefoot awesome, and it is, but for some athletes and some clients it actually may not be all. It's cracked up to be based on some pre existing factors, so we're start off with a lot of great talk on the foot and super nation pro nation barefoot. And they we're GONNA get into David's thoughts on a joint base model on addressing knee pain, Achilles Pain in David's go to's in making sure that kinetic chain. The integrity of the kinetic chain is there when we're looking at does an athlete. How would it takes to stabilize joins properly to move properly and to have this baseline by which all other strike strength interventions can be effective, so whether you are looking to get out of pain or years looking for a fuller understanding of the human body, and that joint base model by which we move and operate. This is an awesome. Awesome Show David. He's such a wealth of Knowledge David Guy. WHO's learned from the best of the Best Gary Ward Pasta? Restoration Institute the Martial Arts. The list goes on every time I talked to David. I always learned something I'm always so impressed with such the wide lens that he takes on athletics and the human body, so that all being said let's get onto episode to twelve of the podcast here we go. David Mandate. It's good to have you back on the show. Hey thanks very much for me. always great to. Actually saw I checked before I came on its nearly a year since we last on a podcast and we've chatted quite a beating. In that year, but I'm going to go to catch up for sure. Yeah, a lot of lot's happened since our last I guess. There's a lot of chatting and and cool exercises and things we've. We've shared in the virtual space with that in the time that we've talked so. It'll be great to get to a lot of that today and. Last time, the topic was pro nation. And then this is some of the stuff we covered since our last show, but. Super Nation right like I. Mean it's like you have to be appropriate, but I think I'd like to cover the opposite end of that spectrum if we're always looking at the the interrelationship so. Crew start off a little bit. By what is the? We need to be functional and and and build a work well athletically, but what is the importance? Maybe I describe it to, but what's the description, the importance of being able to superstate the foot in human movement. Yeah? I guess, yeah, we did talk about pro nation quite a lot last I'm I'm quite detailed. The forties quite detailed Bush. If you if you want to call it, pro nation, just kind of the flattening the actors of the flush. than super nation will be the opposite. It's kind of the lifting the actions of the Ford in the foot sex. Alaskan coma. A more rigid lever and people would typically say pro nation is a bad thing and super nation is a good thing, and in reality one doesn't exist without the other. There is no down. There is no left without Roy. On deeper. Are Stalking one of these shootings tend to be the people who have a problem so would see that people who are. On, it's not necessarily about Harrier. showed are any part of your body how it looks. It's it moves and we had this conversation. A little bit recently is why. It's very much about how your foot moves, so if if you look like you have a more pro-native flush. All you would be much happier with you. Having more prone naked are slack force that can actually. Experienced some super nation on some pro nation than someone who looks like they have reading noise neutral looking. For actually can't experience either and so it's not that Pro Nation Gordon Super Nation is bad. Our voice farsight so that we need boats. It's like saying it's like saying the people who say that pro nation is bad. It's like. You shouldn't your spine to the left because you're splitting, should go left and Royce on your foot should go less than Roy on opened their own an in and out, and all these different ways, and that's where moves and if you're going to. If you're going to walk through, should woods you think of where we came from in forest or something like that and your photos is landing on a different tweet in different rock.

Recipe edition, Joshua Owens-Baigler
"Name's Josh Aaron Spangler. Iraq founder of Angelina restaurant and Tilson. And today I'm going to show about signature dishes temporary tomatoes with actually pester. It's a super simple recipe to make it. Takes a little bit of time, but it's something that you can. Join and go back to go along the ingredients a quite flexible, so feel free to use whatever you having a Lotta what I'm going to start with start with the tomatoes. So, we're going to dry tomatoes very slowly. Low, temper off, so we're going to start a hundred degrees. Stop Prohibiting. For the tomatoes look for good quality heritage tomato with thick skin. We're GONNA look for about five to seven cents meters across GonNa. CUT THEM IN HALF WITH AIN'T GONNA. Drizzle a little bit of sugar. That salt time secret ingredient in the restaurant news does she granules? Get those that's amazing, little bit of time in the spice, splendor and then they. As well, just a little bit like seasoning. One sprint coo over the tomatoes, and we placed them at a preheated of two hundred degrees as I, said previously. We leave those for an hour. And then offer an hour. We turned down to about seventy five degrees, and we leave that for four or five hours. I'm going to move on to how you make the Pesto so again. This is super flexible. Don't panic! There's one ingredient missing substitutive something similar. It's really from thing to make so we start with some newly put capers then add salted anchovies. We add a big handful of parsley when I mentioned, these ingredients are like to go by large handful all in equal parts and keep tasting as you go along together to how you like him a handful of. A handful of activities, a big handful of Parsley, big handful of mint. If you have a couple of she leaves, if not comply with any green hub to nine suppliers, colic, some salt and pepper, a little touch of olive oil and the show chef secret. If outs, ice keeps you keep a beautiful green color. Now I recommend trying to keep your Pesto as dry as possible, so you're gonNA have to have a spatula to have this going to be quite difficult to get going in the blender, but the hard work has really really worth it once you've made that. I would put aside at the Fridge and get your favorite book out rate for three hours white for those to cook. About half an hour before you're ready, we're GONNA. Make ourselves a really simple type per. And, that's with two hundred and fifty grams off cornflour or Either a walk just the same five hundred grams preferably of zero zero pasta flour. If no plane flying will work, and then lead of Soda Walter Secret Hair has gotten. As cold as you can't put it in the fridge for a couple of hours, we'll put it in the freeze of ten minutes, and the code is the better result you're going to get in. A Pan on the side can have a source preferably with a thick bottom and we're going to start. Some flour oil to fry that's. Where aiming for about one sixty five degrees, which means that if you're doing a small source panel I recommend taking the oil two hundred ninety degrees that way when you drop the tomatoes and the temperature of the oil withdraw. They're gonNA cook really nicely when she reached about hundred and eighty degrees. You've gotta work quite quickly so you the oil we're going to take those beautiful Tamalpais dry out the other. We're GONNA dipped in the batter, and then straight into the oil and we're GONNA flip them. I would say often about ten seconds. Every now and again. I should be ready in about two minutes. If you touch the players, a pair of metal tongues, you'll see that he starts to get crispy outside on. That signifies that they're ready to think cooked already, so don't worry about it. Smells is just worry about how crispy batter as
Dan Kiernan interview
"Welcomed episode fifty six of the functional tennis podcast I'm Fabio. Malate your host this week. I speak Don Kiernan a former pro who sit up a great academy in Sodo Grand The in Spain this episode we split into two shows this week. We'll talk about how don got into tennis winning around the Wimbledon and his road to open the Soda Tennis Academy as well as an in depth. Look into life at the academy next week. Week we'll be back with Don. Thomas how used the covert pandemic as an opportunity grow worldwide, and we also took deeply mental health issues in tennis, it or podcast sponsors head on. If you're on twitter, please give us a follow over at Funk tennis. That's F.. U.. N. C. Tennis. We have restarted our twitter account on. Want to be more active over there, and it's a great way to connect witter listeners. Okay, that's get started. Hi Don Williams Functional Tennis Podcast Bobbio. Thanks. Thanks for having me. It's been a while I've been wanting to get you on. For various reasons, one being of no from Soda Tenths Academy Long Before I started functional tennis true. My pile and you're in another lsu alumni like yourself. James Clusky did a bit of training. What you over there at the lots right I mean not not going back. Somebody's Fabio but. Yet James would come out. You know every now and then and actually back in the day. Liam broady and I'm sure James Old. Thank me for this story. He actually beat tweeted a physical testing and he beat Liam broady in the sprints. And he's ever let Liam from at down. You know so the the good old days and Diaries players over the as well the connection speed strong I. Don't believe I don't believe Clusky WanNa Erase. We have a video someone. The archives I think it was potentially down to Liam Brody's lack of effort a little bit, but but hey, at the end of the day still. On the day And Liam GonNa have time for it ever. Since that's for sure, you find that you got to send that to me to. Also we have a top academies, a list on functional tennis and we just don't WanNa ride. A best top academies are Sotos entered. That will enter that list. When this podcast is live, you'll be on that list, so it's great to speak to the founder onto the main man who's who said up the academy, and that's why I want to this podcast as As well, we've done it with a few of their economies on. It's great, and it just gives listeners a better insight into the Academy Rotterdam. Some information you send me how far from the airport all that SORTA stuff so to speak and get your values on C.. Bit More in depth had the academy Ron's I I really appreciate that Fabio naught, and any you know any supports categories like ourselves can get from from platforms like yourself is is is massively appreciated. You know and. On. All questions on on any topic as honestly as possible. So anything you want to know about the academy we can, we can. We can get into the detail Shuba Great. That's fantastic and. Is a no German covert has been tougher. All academies coaches players for everybody every line of business, but I think you've handled it really well. You've been really progressive. and. You've been really busy I heard. You say you haven't been off. Have Not Day off and fourteen weeks like that since went is covert, really started and I want to hear more Beth data. What worked for you? What didn't work about you and how I fade? You'RE GONNA commander. This stronger than you did going into it, which is not the case for everybody, so be great to get some insight into that the obsolete. It's been a fina testing challenge. Challenge in time I think the everybody globally in offset it on a couple of our podcasts. It's almost that I think that's helped us all little bit that everybody's in the same boat you know. I think is been a there's been a connection that people have made through this pandemic and I always a big believer. The adversity says a lot you know, says a lot about tennis. Pledges says a lot about people I have to admit I had a brilliant. Brilliant team over the last few weeks you know. I sometimes get some of the praise for the initiatives, but there's a law. Grad people behind me that doing the work and work and extremely hard, while so feel very fortunate and feel feel very connected to my team and brought us closer together, and you know like like you said I. Hope a law because things will come out of this as well.
Streaks and records that will be cut short by MLB's 60-game season
"Is supposed to start. Uh late next week, the twins will open up against the White Sox in Chicago. It's a 60 game sprint. And it's going to be unlike anything we've seen, isn't it? Always. Definitely it's going to be exciting because every game very important, obviously, even in 162 games scheduled, but there's no room for area for three or four game losing streak. It could wipe you out in a 50 game season. Yeah, and to expound on your point. I saw this a couple of weeks ago. Every win is like 2.5 wins in a regular 162 game season. Every losses like 2.5 defeats. So if you win three straight games that's essentially like 7.5 wins. Basically, you lose 45 in a row. That could be a big setback in it. Oh, most definitely, and the mindset of your ball club. You know if there is pressure during this season, and you know what he what I like is getting prepared for the season some of their young talent. Having an opportunity to show their skills in there. We'll hit a slot games you're playing. I know I saw Perloff last year and I thought, you know he did enough to spring training last year to make the team but you know he was behind the extra al pewter. You know that between Cary because they have more talent will not more talent but more experience. So I'm good to see Karloff doing well and he'll be available for us this year. Any concerns about Louise Arise, Byron Bucks and some of the guys getting banged up in this spring training 2.0, Well, you know me personally, I believe, bustin. If you get him, he's a bonus. It just seems like if it could happen, it happened to him. Some people would say, Well, he plays hard, which he does. But you know he's not on the field enough for me. We've got a plan for somebody to take his place if he's ready to go Yeah, no question. Look, the pandemic has been a bummer when it comes to sports, But maybe it's been a good thing for the twins in the sense that Rich Hill should be ready to go. And some of these veteran pitchers like Homer Bailey Kenta Maeda that they W maybe fresher longer than they would be in a typical longer season. Almost definitely of I. You know, If there's some good to come out of this situation, Mr Hill will be ready to go for the Minnesota Twins, an important acquisition or, you know, that's a fun office picked up so I'm really excited not only just to be able to watch some baseball whether their fans or not, but I think this team has enough talent, and Rocco has prepared him in such a way. I'm sure that they'll be ready when the bell wing
Woodbine Revised 2020 Stakes Schedule Starts Tomorrow
"Colony. What's being? Was Our industry starved the week presented by Stuart. Morris Equine Forum tomorrow morning, eight to ten am eastern time serious to nineteen excellent to a one stream it live horse racing radio. Dot. Net all right up at woodbine couple of stakes, races, tomorrow, Mile, and a sixteenth greed, three trillium on the all weather up there We. Get a field of eight phillies and mass. To Go The eight and a half furlongs. This was a tough one. I thought body. There's a lot of wage going here. Yeah I'M GONNA take a little bit of stab here. I'm I'm wondering. If number one super escape can steal this race. To me. It looks like she's the only true speed in the field. Maybe number seven another time WHO's shown. Very moderate speed at times, but I think if they break evenly. Super Escape is faster. She's been sprinting. Relax too I think she's better routing than she is sprinting. In fact, she's two for two on non turf surfaces. Atta Mile and a sixteenth including one for one on the all weather at Woodbine. She's got the inside post I think she's going to get out and go and her good racers good as anyone else. She's ten to one on the morning line one. I'd be most afraid of is number. Three art of almost Herat Field Emma Jayne Wilson Mason last time out. On the turf at Woodbine and She's run well on turf, or on the all weather axes been in the money, all four starts on the all weather at Woodbine, so I would expect art of almost to be the one who's closing most at super escape. I'm an both of them, but super escape at ten to one interesting. Nice price is price even better prices being at home The Keep in mind by the way the seven another time cross entered in the royal north, so we'll see where trainer Barbara minshull decides to run her daughter of money. She's cross entered in the very next race. That will talk about a minute or so here Like you I wanted to go a little bit of a different direction here I'm GonNa take the six painting for Josie Carroll. Who stretching out of for the first time old for races have been sprints. She's closed nicely. And all those Frenchies by distorted humor out of an AP in the mayor can't imagine a stretch out. It's GonNa hurt her 'cause probably bring her into the race a little earlier as well I I I thought she was a little interesting in he I. Don't know why she hasn't been lot that bugs me. All know why she hasn't been long yet in her career, but I will I'll try and get painting turns Josie. Carroll trains dollar store. Store, Jim, the six painting from me in the trillium race number nine grade to royal north six furlongs. On the turf, the outer EP Taylor Turf Course. Again. We'll see what another time does she to one in the trillium? She's five one of the morning line in this royal north we had a field of nine depending on graduates. And I leaned a number five sister peacock once again thought she might be the speed of the speed. She's got a win. Third Place Finisher tour credit in two tries on the turf at Woodbine.
From Glassblower to Software Developer using Free Coding Resources with Michael Pimentel
Training Topics of Speed and Power Development in American Football and Field Sports
"Hey everybody welcome to another show, so this one is a little different and instead of me, interviewing someone or instead of throwing out a Q. and A. and answering your questions I'm actually being guest interviewed by a guy who has an absolute stud resume in the field, and that is Josh hingst. I will say so. Josh I I meant to interview him for a long time now, but Josh flip the script on me and asked if he could interview me on a speed and power in related training topics for American football. When I say football really no matter what sport you work with it, it's this is really applying concepts of of speed bio mechanics for team sports so so American football team. Sport and really translating sprinting speed, and by a mechanic topics really into that environment the. Josh has a superstar resume. He's the head strength coach of the two thousand eighteen super bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. He's had past experience with the Jacksonville Jaguars the University of Nebraska the Atlanta Falcons as well as Florida State University. Josh multi talented, not only is he a strength coach and Ex Anna successful. When at that doing? A lot of work particularly with the Eagles in integration of Sports, science, and really being on the cutting edge there, he also is a sports nutritionist and has done a lot of work in the past in the realms of sports nutrition at some of his previous stops in twenty thirteen, he co-authored Athletes Guide to sports supplements out when he was at the University of Nebraska. I I met Josh back in two thousand four in Barcelona Spain, and it's been phenomenal to be able to stay in touch with him. Since then I'm super humbled. He wanted to interview me. This is like a it was a great opportunity to share my thoughts and put some thoughts together on these topics, but again just super humbling to be interviewed by a person with such awesome resume who I've been trying to get as a typical interview. Guests for this show so anyways we'll. We'll get onto it here just a couple of quick topics that we are. are going to run through is sprint a sprint, development and sprint mechanic development and speed drills particularly as it pertains to team sport. We're GONNA get into concepts on training foot. some particular concepts that I've that really stuck with me from a dairy bar that I've learned from him and how that Pertain Sport? We're GONNA. Talk about is metric, hamstring, injury, prevention and more. This was a really fun talking. I, hope you guys enjoy it so so let's get onto it episode to ten guest interviewer. Josh, thinks, and I have any conversation on speed and power topics. All I. I wanted to start off by Sharon. You know just the thank you for You know it's not often that you know people. Like me. Get a chance to thank people like you that you know that you're learning from that. You're progressing from. N. A just appreciated that. You know it's been a really good thing. I that there's others in the field like Mike in my shoes. That want to say that and. Yeah so I. Just I mean a lot of different thoughts. I mean. I think probably for me. You know I think you know a lot of the questions that you of have chewed on and and some of your interests. It's fun because I think we can all see where your brains at sometimes based on some of the people that you're bringing on the podcast with. Health or Of different things like that, but I think it's all really good good stuff, but I guess the first question I had is is probably one that you've answered a lot I think it's just more or less your take on some speed mechanics and running drills, and those application teams or seen I. Think a lot of people in my view. Shoes are like. Like well. We're not going to change that now. You know we're getting twenty three year old athletes in you know. Are we wasting our time in those types of things, or are you feel what you would do? You think that we can make make change. In how much time and energy do we devote to these things? Yeah, so that's a good question. I would say just in my time working with team sports in the running situation and thinking about it, and watching and observing as well I, think the I'll start with the good, actually because I think that it's in my nature to sometimes be a little contrarian as I was mentioning before we start recording I try to stay balanced. Try to really still like both sides of the equation, so with the common sprint drills as the bees, and whatever else there isn't all the marching type stuff 'cause I guess if we think of Sprint Joe. We think of a march. It's not going to fast horizontally. You're slowing the horizontal component down so there's some things in the vertical plane that. You can work on. It's all start with the positives I i. do think that there's always a bandwidth I mentioned this and speed strength, but I think that even if there's a disconnect between the actual mechanics in a marching bass drill for an athlete who might be a very muscular type athlete like they're very muscle driven they they tend to really squat deep in their movements, which isn't a bad for being a football player and Rennick Selah Rating. That's really important. But for someone who may not be in touch with their feet so much I think it gives a good opportunity to give them exposure for some of the vertical contacts ply metric in some ways so I I think that's okay. I don't have a problem with that I. Think it's the poll, the pole or was it dried mock or I think he's Polish when he came up with that stuff. It was really because they couldn't run I. don't know how many indoor tracks they had, and they just had to come up with a creative way to maintain. Muscle specific conditioning for sprinters, so if we think of if I'm a football player, a basketball player, and most of my movement is with a lower center of mass, and it's a little more specific to half the change. Directions quickly which I. wouldn't if I was a football player, I wouldn't WanNa really run like a sprinter because that's sometimes I think about if I'm spending more time in the air by nature, I need to the the the time for me to make a decision is is more or less are basically it's going to if it takes me longer to put my foot down. Now I can't change directions as quickly and I will say and I don't WanNa deviate from the question of sprint because I'm going to get there, but me and a dairy bar have been talking just in attract context about strategies to athletes run the four hundred and a lot of these athletes who are dying at the end of the race die because they don't. They can't switch strategies like they run one way. Way Whereas Wade. Van Niekerk does different things with his arms and legs on the Ben. The key switches strategy so this makes out I do think it is valuable for a football player or team sport athlete to be able to have different strategies, but I wouldn't I would never watch a football player, run and think man. You need to run as long as you're not running away. It's GonNa. Get you hurt. Excessive anterior till and the backside mechanics, poor backside macaques that come with the anterior till I. Get that we want to minimize those, but I don't necessarily need to see. Run same
Weekend Stakes Preview Presented by NYRA Bets
"The victory ride kicks off the stakes action here at Belmont Park tomorrow afternoon grade three early in the caught has just the feel of five phillies. GOING TO GO Six and a half furlongs as for the three year old's warning line favors one francs. Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.

Your Present is Soon Your Past
"Your perspective is centered on now. You see everything as something that is either happening in this moment or something that will be categorized as the future. Or categorized as past. But. It's very hard to imagine that the now. Will soon be considered the past, but what's even harder to imagine is that the now was once the future. And that at some point in the past you imagined. The now you imagined whatever was happening today. And likely. You imagined it differently. That's what we're talking about in today's episode. My name is Jonathan Control. You're listening to velvety, and my goal on the show is to help driven developers like you find clarity, perspective and purpose in their careers. So if you think about this for a second, there's a lot of insightful thoughts that can come from. Kind of lingering on this thought the idea that your perspective. You can imagine that you have kind of like a camera and the camera can look at time, and they can see it in these three distinct formats. Into the future into the now we'll talk a little bit more about what that means a second and then into the past. And in both directions in future, and into the past the further away it gets the more fuzzy it seems to be. And at some point. Incomprehensible, there's no picture that you can imagine at some point into the future. That is even close to accurate. And though we have some record of things that have happened in the past, even looking back on those things, there is some level of distortion that is inevitably going to happen because you are distanced from that event, the certainly happens as a result of simply non existing if we look far enough back into the past. We weren't alive. And so everything that we know of events that happened before we were alive. Are regurgitation. They're things that we learned that believed from someone else. Perhaps we have evidence of those things actually occurring, but the end of the day those are not memories are not things that we actually experienced ourselves. Now. Believe it as an exercise to the listener to go and. Do some research on the faulty nece of memory. Suffice it to say that memory is not an incredibly reliable mechanism. We can substitute memories for example things that we've heard from other people. We can imagine that we did them. If we've heard them enough and so our memories, even when we recall them are changing, but nevertheless this system of looking into the future, looking into the past is based on this somewhat faulty recording mechanism. But when we think about nine now. When we think about what's happening now. We'd like to exclude now from any of our critical thinking. So. How does this happen exactly well? When we look into the future, we make plans. We think with intention about what we want to happen. Or even if we don't necessarily think about what we want to happen, we think about what is likely to happen. This is a fundamental human attribute to imagine the future to play out different scenarios, even if only because of our own survivals were doing this even involuntarily. The more distant we go once again. Of course it gets fuzzy, but the further out we go, the more human those thoughts are. For example we can imagine unlike any other animal what the world might be like. We are no longer here. Additionally. We can imagine what the world was like before we existed. But as we look into the future, we imagine. And we create plans. We have intentions. We think critically about cause and effect. Similarly, we can look into the past and we can easily critique our previous actions. This idea that hindsight is twenty twenty. Shows us that we can easily look into the past with an eye of critique. Now. Why is it that we can look into the future with an eye for planning? We can look into the past with an eye. Four critique part of the reason is because we are not experiencing either of those things where imagining them. And, so when we think back, even though we were a part of that, maybe we did experience it. We're still having to imagine it. We're not imagining in the same way that we might construct something that never happened where imagining what it was like when it did happen. When we imagine things, we put ourselves a fairly low stakes environment. This means that we can be critical past cells because. We're sitting here now. Are Opportunities of being better. Are Abundant. And if we think into the future, we can be overly optimistic rather than realistic. We can imagine that even though we've never stuck to diet plan, but this is the year on the first of January. We're going to stick to it. More to the point of Software Engineering, we can imagine that even though we've never been able to estimate the amount of time necessary to complete a given sprint. Suddenly. This sprint will be different. And we can do this because we're separated. We're not experiencing the sprint. That's in front of us where imagining it.
"sprint" Discussed on The Everyday Innovator Podcast
"They have to be burning the midnight oil staying up late answering emails or whatever? It's kind of Nice to have that pressure release valve of saying you know we're GONNA we're. GonNa we're GONNA start the sprint on Tuesday on Monday. We want you to kind of clear the decks and take care of anything big. That's going to pop up. And then you're free to focus the rest of the week I think that's a for a lot of teams sort of in the in the real world. That's a really good use of that. Astro v Day. Suggestion and as you said right. If you get to the end of the at maybe the way you had envisioned the outcome being that still incredible learning, we may have saved ourselves months of going down the wrong path right? Yeah, well. Yeah, even a failed sprint quote unquote failed. Sprint is is not really a failure. Because like you, said you. You undoubtedly learned a ton of stuff. So, take us through the recipe. If we have the five day spree in mind, where do we start was the key things here? Sure the most important thing is that you have a big problem or opportunity, so design sprints don't make sense when you work on a little thing a little feature. Sort of a nice to have project or you know kind of conceptual. Maybe this kind of this interesting thing. We're thinking about because you're asking. A lot of people are asking for a lot of time. A lot of focus and we find that sprints work best when they're focused on something. That's really important. The type of thing that's keeping people up at night. The type of thing that you've been having meetings about for weeks or mom and you can't quite seem to to get any traction, so that's important thing is. A big problem. Need to gather a team. You WanNa have sort of a team that that reflects represents the real team who's responsible for designing this product or moving this metric or reaching this type of customer or whatever your your problem is. And then of course, the time, and so within the five day framework. Assuming that you you've kind of blocked off of a five day WORKWEEK, Monday to Friday week. There is basically one big goal per day. And again it's all in pursuit of that realistic prototype, and that customer test on Friday, but the there's sort of a series of of activities they all roll up to one big goal per day, and then all those big goals roll up to that that big moment at the end of the week. Monday is all about problem framing so Monday. We call that the mapping day, so you're basically creating a shared map of the problem that you're working on. And this is.

"To just build it but you describe this afterwards as designed sprint slump. So what do you mean by slump? That kind of scenario where. It's the design. Sprinter anything really. You talked about experiences with design thinking sessions and whatnot Have you ever been in a situation where you know? You're kind of sitting doing Irregular Work and you know the sticky notes are still on the walls. It's GONNA mocking. You say we haven't done anything with this or maybe they're even starting to like slowly fall off the walls like you know little leaves like really frustrating and There's there's a few few reasons why this is the case Often these kinds of will It will discover new opportunities sometimes especially in big companies. We might discover opportunity that has no because the current org structures. Don't support this idea. That the cross cutting or you know. Just it's just so new and so different that We don't even know what what. Vp This would fall under for instance even if there is a clear home for a if we haven't had a discussion upfront around resources and set expectations that this work is going to result in more work. And we're not fun this opportunity that we we We uncover a refine If we don't have that conversation up front than we can't You know dog air funds or set stuff aside or or even put things in motion that will Be Mean we have budget etc so that means that once we find the discovery then we had to wait around for all that stuff to happen and often if we start those processes in parallel. They can they can. They can short in that time. We might have to wait if at all and so ultimately you know there's a whole host of reasons why this can be but as SMS since it's the fact that these these types of workshops can lead to a lot of momentum a lot of progress on a short amount of time and often. It's much shorter than what would happen if you did not take these approaches so it happened that creates a vacuum right it. You just also compress time. And if you didn't if you didn't think about the stuff that needs to come atra and pull in compressed that and pull it forward as well that void still gonNA be there. And and you're GONNA Digress You'RE GONNA go back to normal habits and doing the things that you way you've always done them and And it's going to be harder to get that momentum back Especially if people look at it from the perspective of like what we already invested in Zion. Sprint didn't work out and so it's really important to make sure that to to harness that momentum and ends An kind to nurture it so that you can maintain cap so we need to dive into that part just hit rate way said this applies to any kind of innovation effort right for invasion retreat or some kind of idea management system where a bunch of ideas all of a sudden the design thinking design sprint. Same problem if we end up with something that we want to pursue and we can have this issue of how would find the resources into the organization like I love these insights the Douglas's sharing about design.
"sprint" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"A federally subsidized program. Sprint is now facing potential settlement with the Federal Communications Commission the regulator said in September that sprint improperly collected tens of millions of dollars in federal subsidies for eight hundred eighty five thousand customers. who weren't using the service as part of lifeline? Joining joining me now with more on this Wall Street Journal exclusive is reporter Sara Krause. So let's start by talking about lifeline program. This is a federal program that was created back in the nineteen eighty s for low income users and the idea was to give them access to emergency services. Tell us how it worked then. Sure so what this program is meant to do is almost like like the snap. Food benefits is to provide lower income Americans with some sort of cell phone service that allows them to either reach nine one one or stay in contact with family or a potential employer at a discounted rate and so carriers receive a government subsidy for providing this service and customers either get free service or at a discount it depends is on their income. Requirements are met and you found that throughout the program's history. It's already been revamped several times. Yes this is a fairly contentious program that the FCC under different administrations has debated what to do about it. How to overhaul it how to make sure that there is less fraud or abuse in it? It's a program that has struggled with troubles. Verifying customers. Initially customers would sell verify one. Change put that onus on carriers it's been subject to abuses from from aggressive sales tactics and sales incentives that you weren't within the spirit of the program so this is a this is a program that has been revamped several times in the past fast. So let's talk about your recent reporting and this was a Wall Street Journal exclusive that sprint over counted the active users in this program. What it sprint tell you and what did you hear from the FCC sprint currently faces a potential of regulatory settlement with the FCC four collecting tens of millions of dollars in subsidies for about eight hundred eighty five thousand lines that were improperly counted? What I discovered was that the problem actually dates back further than that so there were sort of two issues of not properly counting usage edge? The one that the FCC has disclosed has to do with sprint counting. Incoming calls that went to voicemails outgoing calls which kept lines that we're supposed to be dormant went active. What I discovered was back in two thousand thirteen and two thousand fourteen? There was another usage counting issue in which incoming text messages kept align active improperly and so that the company was never find for they shed some subscribers in Oregon but told organ officials at the time according to documents that I saw that it it was a a more widespread problem than just that state and so the Oregon Public Utility Commission which discovered both the two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen problem as well as the most recent issue found found that in one case for example a woman who had died months earlier her line was still counted as active even though she obviously was not using the device and that was because incoming text messages were counted as usage. So what are the implications for sprint. It's unclear what happens next to the FCC is currently investigating the issue that they had already identified in in terms of the voicemail issue and sprint said that the most recent issue was caused by an inadvertent coating issue in two thousand seventeen. So there were lifeline. Rule changes in two thousand sixteen eighteen carriers who provide the service then sort of adjusted their filters in IT systems to react to those changes and sprint has said it was a coding issue. At the time that caused the most recent problem there was also in response to Oregon officials in the documents that I saw back in two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen sprint. Said you know this is also filtering issue you. We thought that the the definition of keeping align active might evolve to include tax messages. And we you know. Accidentally put that into motion now and didn't realize is it until Oregon brought it to their attention and the thing I wanted to mention is what we're talking about when we talk about line. Usage is the lifeline program has a requirement that the customers that are receiving in the service. Actually use it. They don't WanNa keep lying open and the carrier shouldn't receive a subsidy if the consumer is not using it so there's various standards for what counts as usage. A lot of that has to do with outgoing calls. And data usage something that suggests that the consumer is actively using their device. So are there implications for other wireless carriers that use the lifeline program program and receive federal subsidies. I would say that this is perhaps a reminder of the burden of making sure that you are measuring usage accurately because you are collecting in a government subsidy and the Process Wall Street Journal reporter Sara Krause joining me in our studio in New York. Thank you so much thank you garage..

Let's bring in Chris Lowe chief economist at efdn Financial New York Hey Chris Good Morning Good Morning Sherie so learn kudlow says. US and China are close to a deal.

We heard just yesterday that the odds of a deal were very low. Because the Chinese don't WanNa make numerical promises on on agriculture imports. Let's just say we're hopeful all right. We'll moving to something more concrete. The Commerce Department said retail sales sales increased point three percent last month which is good compared to September which had two point three percent drop is this good news? the thing is that at that point three dropping September. You pointed out was a revision and those downward revisions meant. It was a little weaker than expected. I think I think the critical thing about retail sales is that for the last two quarters consumers have pretty much carried the economy single-handed like there's just no contribution that all from business spending. It's good that we still have growth but I it is now looking back at the last. It's three months a little less growth than we thought.

"More quickly identify areas for design changes that for them or previously difficult to prove do you get him? And if you'll customers in the end, they off you any feedback on the kind of insights that I've actually gained. And now they've managed to turn inside somebody to really valuable, and and like big differences will big joins us to what I did shape. Or I think at this point. So we did recently launched leave in about a month and a half. We did have a beta program that ran for. I think about six months prior to the launch where we were working with partners to give us feedback. Not only on the improvements that they were able to make. But also. On the platform itself. So we worked very closely with a lot of our now clients paying clients that wanted to help us improve the platform, but also we're using it regularly. So some of the changes might be more general where for instance, we have a client called Ivanka they're the largest online Bank in Sweden, these it for all sorts of different customer testing. But they are using it every time they do customer testing. And they're using it in a live setting. So you can actually with Toby pro sprint see while. The participant is now beginning in this case bonzes website and platform where they're looking in that moment. So if you have stakeholders and decision makers in that session, they can actually see while the session is happening. What areas are challenging for the participants. Are they having trouble finding the form to submit to the Bank to actually open up an account? These are the types of things that again with interviews and other focus group type method. Dhs. They might not be able to have seen because that hidden layer of insights that implicit subconscious data that we're getting or that output that we're getting from Toby pro sprint. You're not able to get from those other methods. So the the findings are tend to be more general these these are, you know, relatively new client. So I think the more we work within the more will get more concrete examples, but I think ultimately they recognize that that hidden layer of insights is so valuable they need to be using Toby pro sprint for all of their user testing. Obsessions height UNM. He's just one example that we've mentioned today, so how can similar on trucking's to these us say online banking pool whose music video streaming services would portal's really pretty much any digital pro. I think that you say it perfectly that any digital service or product website anything that's on a screen can benefit from using Toby pro sprint. So for instance, if you're any type of ecommerce website. We've done some studies on Amazon with specific products where we can understand is it is there a specific product image. That captures people attention more effectively than others. Is there a certain amount of text that overwhelms a participant when they're reading a product description that has them drop off in and move on from the product or they don't capture or they're not reading the most essential elements of or product features in that first few sentences were able to see with the output that we're getting from Toby sprint when that happens in actually have a physical representation of when the participant loses interest or can't find a product on any commerce environment, which is hugely valuable when you're trying to compete with so many other competitor products like to talk about the attention economy. It's more important than ever for altered all sorts of companies across all verticals, and you know, industries to make their digital services and webs. Sites as officiant as ideal for the user as possible and by implementing Toby pro sprint into their agile way of working they're able to better understand than ever how they're navigating these products and NC where these incremental improvements can be made in when there's so many different places that people can be shopping and people have their phones, and their TV's, etc. So many distracting elements people expect a good user experience and ideal your experience every second that is spent trying to find something and every second that they're struggling to do something is an opportunity for them to leave a website to decide to go somewhere else. So it's more important than ever to be implementing I tracking and using Toby pro sprint and other technologies in user testing regularly. Will we all living in a mobile?.
