This Siege YouTuber Got Blacklisted For Life
"We got all sorts of allegations to get through but this story starts with the hot breach podcast which rogue nine co hosted alongside other siege youtubers get flanked and purdue Pete and as far as siege specific podcast go it was pretty popular. Everybody. Welcome to a very special episode of the hot breach podcast back in October of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred hot breach guys were invited by Ubisoft down to a balancing workshop that was being hosted in Barcelona. The idea was that they would come experience what the workshop had to say, and then record a podcast live in. Barcelona. The reality is this Barcelona trip was a disaster for everyone involved in actually led to the end of the hot bridge podcast because the very next day. All of Montreal based colleagues and many of the bustle based ones that I've been harassing her that I made her feel quote very uncomfortable and unsurprisingly making such a serious accusation against me turned an awkward situation into a complete nightmare. Now, almost a year after the trip rogue neither recently put a video talking about the harassment allegations made against him and how the Barcelona trip played a role in ultimately getting him blacklisted by UBISOFT. I will be sharing a story of how it was physically threatened at a rainbow six event by Ubisoft to staff member who was drunk off his face as well as details of defamation and match-fixing by another in the. Video, he also accuses to siege community developers of abusing their position, threatening him, and even allegedly match-fixing a charity Creator show match. We'll get to those accusations and a little bit but first, let's start with the harassment allegations and this Barcelona trip according to rogue nine in the months leading up to the Barcelona trip he struck up a conversation with ubisoft employees over DM's that quote got a bit personal and plying the things we're moving towards a romantic relationship last year between August and October things became a bit personal between a Ubisoft employees and me I'm not GonNa go into too much detail here, but it is important to briefly touch on this luckily. Almost all of our communications were over twitter DM's, and I still have the entire thread to prove exactly what happened these messages prove that she made the first advances and that she repeatedly encouraged me to keep in touch with her eventually rogue nine says that the woman he was talking to clarify the situation there wasn't going to be a romantic partnership and while he felt led on in was hurt and told her as much apparently according to him the whole thing was chalked up to a giant misunderstanding. Now, the woman wrote nine was talking to was the same woman that was going to be running the upcoming Barcelona balancing event which remember the hot. Breach guys were invited to, and well, Roque says that the Barcelona trip was awkward but ultimately harmless I've had multiple sources tell me a different story and sadly all of this happened right before a weeklong balancing workshop to Ubisoft Bacelona offices which she had organized and that I had committed to taking part in months earlier from what I was told, how get flagged shares his perspective in a recent video he uploaded wrote nine took the rejection pretty personally and it ruined the entire trip for the hot breach team. Once we arrived it was evident from like day one that it was going to be an issue like I would say that it was awkward. From the get go, there were awkward dinners with everyone involved rose co-hosted. Their best to distract him get flying says that road tried to confront her about the situation which wrote disputes. The point is this situation was terrible for everyone involved everything went from like awkward on a trip to just like dysfunction I. It was the attention was unbearable and it was so awful. Okay. It got to the point where like she very clearly like you had to like. The taxes that we took from the studio and back like you had to make sure that they weren't in the same taxi and stuff like that like it was it was awful like it was it consumed the entire trump. It went from rogue being consumed by who just putting a dark cloud over everything. Over, the course of that entire trip I never saw her do anything that I felt was unprofessional I never saw anything from any UBISOFT employees on that trip that I felt was unprofessional, and then the day the podcast was set to record with the employees featured as a prominent guest rogue nine allegedly tried to veto her because he was still upset about the entire situation. Well, they managed to get through the episode get says that rogue nines behavior on the trip caused him and prestige gop to actually. End The hot breach podcast after the Barcelona episode and to stop working with rogue nine. Altogether, we basically decided that point that we don't want to work with rogue anymore not long after that road nine received the email from ubisoft saying that they were banning him from ever working with us off again because of these alleged harassment allegations quote due to your conduct during the operator balancing sprint workshop and Barcelona. Spain, we regret to inform you that Ubisoft will no longer be working with you moving forward this. Includes future activation such as the London event taking place on October twenty fourth we have always will value the content you have created over the years that said we cannot and will not accept behavior directed towards UBISOFT staff that disrespectful dismissive or route, and shortly after get flanked, put his video sharing his perspective on the Barcelona bouncing trip road nine posted another tweet longer basically disputing a lot of the offense that get flank says happened at this point it's become a bit of a he said, he said. The crazy thing about this situation that you saw reached out to me with a statement long before I ever asked for comment, which to me says that they're taking this very seriously work of content creators is critical to the health and integrity of our communities and our relationship with these creators is built on mutual respect and professionalism at these principles are not respected. UBISOFT we'll take action deem appropriate in order to protect our employees, partners and the wider community and okay. So that wraps up the Barcelona and harassment.

Los Angeles' Orange County gears up for November election
"Million million Americans Americans eligible eligible to to vote vote by by mail mail this this year, year, Spurred Spurred by by covert concerns, states are preparing for an unprecedented surge in mail in ballots. So what happens to your ballot after you mail it? Well, we asked my colleague Jolene Kent to take us to one of the largest and most prepared of although processing centers in the country, it's in Orange County, California south of Los Angeles. In Orange County, California, The final sprint to Election Day begins on October 5th in a month. All of these envelopes will be stuffed with ballots and sent out to voters. Once they're returned here to the registrar. That's when the process kicks into high gear. Orange County's nonpartisan chief Elections official, Neal Kelly oversees the fifth largest voting jurisdiction in the United States. He says he's running a military style operation to handle what's likely to be the biggest mail in vote ever. I think we're probably going to see upwards of 90% honestly for the November election that could add up to 1.2 million in Orange County. Kelly has been anticipating the onslaught from the pandemic in March, investing more than a million dollars in new machinery and doing dry runs to prepare. You know, I lose sleep a lot at night. I think every election official does. And one of the things that I was sleepover is making sure the voters understand their options. The options mill in your ballot early, drop it off in one of these secure drop boxes or deliver in person to a vote center starting four days before Election Day. You can, of course, always vote in person. So when your ballot arrives, the first thing it does is going to this piece of equipment. What this piece of equipment does in a very high speed. It's capturing an image of that signature in a split second. What happens if your signature is not legitimate? Goes to another tear for additional review, Comparing figures correct, correct human being is comparing every single thing. So if it's good balance, then these ballots come into this device right here, and this piece of equipment actually splits the envelope open. This operator with each individual ballots. Is he able to see the way I cast my ballot? No secrecy of the ballot remains because it stays folded here until it goes to another team for opening and flat. This is the moment of truth because now it comes in and we scan it, and we're capturing all the data with a voter, actually. Although Orange County captures mail in ballots as soon as they arrive, No actual votes are tallied until election Day. California allows ballots to arrive up to 17 days after Election Day as long as they're postmarked by November, 3rd. Kelly has 30 days by state law to count all the votes but believes they could finish in two weeks. As for the criticism from the White House mail in ballots will lead to the greatest fraud. Universal. Malin is a very dangerous thing. It's fraught with fraud and every other thing that could happen. I try and stay out of the political phrase the election official, right But just in general, when you talk about the security of mail in voting in general I think it has more secure aspects than in person voting. What we saw is a situation where the county has the time. Money and resource is to handle the expected surgeon mail in voting. But that's just not the case nationwide. Not all counties are this fortunate or prepared, Chuck

The windows would shake slightly but she'd been told not to pay attention to that the regular joke that it was some vengeful spirit. Sharon suspected the cause was far more mundane cheap glass and poor construction Sharon unplug the jukebox took one last look around the place. It had never shined like the Chrysler building, but it looked clean again. She went through a small door in the back which barely clear head and up a small staircase to the tiny apartment above the bar she called home. Living and working in the same place took its toll. She had nights where she dreamt that she was trapped like puzzle winter. Tower. The whole world could change around her and she'd be none the wiser locked up above. In the light of day, those dreams seemed more than a little dramatic at night. However, they almost felt prophetic. This building held whatever pieces of herself she'd sewn together.

She let her eyes fall shut telling herself that she was just taking a quick power nap. She'd go to bed soon. She woke to the feeling of serrated metal teeth pressing into her neck.

The haze of retired mind she wondered how he entered when everything was locked up tight for the night. She told him that there was a safe downstairs, but it was empty. He didn't want money. The manse bat on the floor told her he was there to help her. Take care of things.

"Except for the disrespect it's do. There were things that she said that I was like fuck me. Do they have a gun to her back at the moment, but there was other shit that you said where I. was like Damn Okay She's actually acknowledging. The civil rights issues we have across our country speaking to them in a direct, a more direct way at least than literally every single other Republican that was run up onto the stage. Or? Piped in from wherever the fuck on camera and these awkward awkward awkward speeches Bro a lot of which got leaked beforehand. So you could read them as they were reading them and it was just like the most I mean. No one actually says anything no, it's the same message just different words over and over again about how we're GonNa make America great again. No one ever says anything on the other side either to be no no, no nothing is the same thing and it's just a different slogan. Obviously, we have politicians on both sides that are good and are not shit. But for the most part, the ones we see at the top, they get run out of these conventions they're fucking awful and they say things that make me want to die and then there was like this lightbulb when Melania trump. The first lady the by the way WHO's not even supposed to be speaking to political shit at these conventions or whatever. Apparently that's a thing. I don't know if it's a law, but it's like a one of those unspoken things like the first lady's not supposed to get not supposed to talk like real. Specific like kind of how Michelle Obama's much more about you know feed the children and Malania has her Shitsu. It's just got the worst name ever. It's called like. Now I have to look this up as well as a lawn care guy. Though right now I have some beef with Melania. She fucked with the White House's Rose Garden to be best. That's what it's called be best. I'm not joking. Oh. Best of of of life, it's a public awareness campaign to be focused on well being for youth and advocating against cyber bullying and drug particularly opioid use. Okay. Have you seen hit called? We need more cyber bullying in this world. Best. Be Like just the letter B. or B. E. WE ninety more cyber bullying Kohl's house does just suggest people never know when we're joking anymore but it was like so like when I grow up like we were like hardcore anti bullying campaign when I was in like middle school and high school, and now we have all these tiktok kids that obviously don't have enough people keeping them in check they should be best. Also. Real quick. It was John. Adams that said, the two party system was a horrible idea. He was a different founding father apologies. Thomas. Jefferson was one of the perpetrators of the two party system but also. It just makes me. The older. I've gotten the more that I've realized. We're just like it doesn't matter what you believe. If you really break it down things that I know were sex of flesh on a floating rock and the endless abyss of space. WHY THE HELL Are we so angry, why are we so angry? We're blessed enough to be born onto this planet. We're blessed enough to have the chance to explore this life to live whatever this may be. We have a very by night amount of time on this. People just seem angry people seem upset like nobody wants to. fucking. Insane well, okay I'm angry at this. I'm saying people in the political system are angry at each other as opposed to attempting to love across the for them. That's the thing people have failing to see all of this shit there spewing works for them because. Yeah, it doesn't work for us. It doesn't do anything for the people. It's just about politics in keeping politicians in their political power. That's it. There's no. The problem seeing like the failure to acknowledge that a lot of this is literally propaganda at this point. Literally not that's my opinion. It's a fact. A lot of what we're seeing is propaganda. It's not real. It's fucking bullshit that is organized to get you to think and act a certain way. which I'm not cool with obviously. As a freedom loving American that disturbs me a great deal to see propaganda putting out being put out constantly people buy into. And don't even stop to question. The fact that the GOP came out and said that are only running on trump's reelection. There's no platform is is a scary. The plow home is to really real. Yeah that's it. That's that's the basis of the GOP, the GOP's platform and really. What I was GONNA. Say really the basis of the DNC's platform is just to get Joe Biden elected to get trump out. And? There's really no. I've heard very little discourse on what actually wants to be done by either party if they're to be elected. Very, very little discourse. Also. If. You are a if you are a Republican and you're listening. I I don't know. I guess. Please just try to vote with your. Thinking outside of just about you. All right. If you're a Democrat and you're listening, please acknowledge the fact that like. These people. That are at the top of the Democratic Party's leadership have never had a better opportunity. To step in and turn it around and they have completely shit the bed time and time and time again for most of my life really and that's why we have these wide swings from back to right back to left back to right and it's just getting. Ridiculous. So this would November coming up. I WANNA to have a conversation very quickly about why we vote how we choose who we vote for and what our elected officials in this country are meant to actually do so why do we vote To ensure that we individually are represented selfishly just in our own homes. Or is it to ensure all Americans are in the best position? Possible. For. This country to succeed. Is it. Basically, it's like are is this a team? Are we all on our own. Duke it out seeing what we can get for ourselves because it seems like it's the ladder and it seems like that's gone horribly wrong. and. Like it's just a question to ask yourselves for me to ask myself as we approach November for all of us to ask ourselves, why do I vote? What am I voting about? What is the point of me casting vote? What am I trying to accomplish with the my vote? Who Vote for is it based on what I see on TV? Is it based on these conventions that I watch or don't watch? Is it based on headlines that you read on the Internet? Do Do. We actually read and do research about our candidates or are we just going to go out and do the whole like what we've seen online and on and? Recognizable names and faces thing. Are you going to only focus on the national presidential level election or are you going to focus on the local level to these are all questions we need to start asking ourselves probably several years ago but right now If, you haven't already because it's August twenty sixth August is almost gone. In election season is drawing even more near. So. Let's all make a more concerted effort on both sides to do our research do our due diligence and cast votes for representatives who actually represent us, and what we think is best not just for individual fucking selves and families, but for the country as a whole. Every selfish act begets another one and that snowball gets you to where we are now. But you can undo this shit. Is, always a road back in life. Is this one a complicated one absolutely. But the more of us that act. Righteously correctly, not just thinking about ourselves taking into consideration bigger picture issues, other people's perspectives doing all the things we've talked about over the past several months. The better off we will be in in slowly we can unravel this fucking shit ball. It's not a snowball anymore Pu. It's it's just poo. and. We need to get rid of the the POOP who has to go. It's not drain the swamp. It's unravel the poop ball twenty twenty you know just. Platform..

Ole Miss Coach Lane Kiffin on college football in a pandemic
"Really looking forward to this next guest. He's Lane Kiffin head coach at Ole Miss and coach Kiffin joining us from campus as. The rebels still have a little bit of time to coach. How's it going? Good afternoon great. I'm really looking forward to the interview to all on the same page well. Okay You promised me the other day you tape the coaches meeting last Thursday morning, and you're going to play it for us with all the descent going on. So can you just hit the play button and we'll all sit back and listen. I don't think that the commissioner be very happy about that. Paul. It was interesting call. Well, we we've been reading about it and and I know you pretty well, I doubt that. You were one of those complaining, but I would imagine you. You've been part of this league twice now What's it like? Being reunited with all your esteemed colleagues. Well, it's interesting I. Didn't realize until that first SEC meeting that we had in Birmingham this time around and I believe if I'm right coach saving, myself were the only ones. Were the only ones in the meeting that were there in whatever two, thousand nine in Tennessee won the day I took the job. So I just saw today and I realize you're your coaching football you're not in charge of the stadium, but I thought governor a few minutes ago in Mississippi governor reads announced that there would be I think twenty percent capacity that's not the big news. The big news is no tailgating. The I know that doesn't affect you as a coach, but it does affect the fans does it not? Yeah it does but you know it is what it is and You know good decision you know based off of social distancing issues in the spread. So a lot of decisions are being made like that that you know people aren't happy with, but you know people really for the most part following protocol with Corona and everyone's talking about the students. But you know I drive through downtown. I, see pictures on the Internet you know most aren't falling either so that makes it really difficult to open up the grow. Yeah I it is a big deal but know Miss Missile one season coach I on on the the more important issues of football team back we talked to you some time ago and that was before voluntary workout had had commenced how how's it feel now and what are you seeing and sensing? From your football team. What are excited to be back? We've had three practices and you know. They're always excited this time of year, but you know to have it taken away from them from Spring and then potentially not playing all at one point You can see how excited they are to be around, and so like I've said before challenges not motivating them, they're plenty motivated the challenges them having disciplined away from here. So we can stop the spread because really at the end of the day, everybody wants to lift weights. Every wants to practice run sprints and learn offense defense but. Probably the teams are win. The most games are the ones that have the least players out for the Games because of Cronin 'cause they manages well. Yeah in on that front What are you doing I mean I realize the season's five weeks away but will there be a set of protocols and precautions not not the normal safety but just to make sure that your own units don't infect each other and you're you're left going playing Alabama at home or another key game without. Critical people I know you can't avoid it, but you can also try to keep them separated to some degree or can you? Yeah, we can. You know I'm not worried about when they're here I, mean we we've got you know team meetings that we have out in indoor facility. You know with everybody spaced out and their instead of the team room you know we split our special teams means you know so we never have everybody together and so I'm not worried when they're here. You know they do a good job and we make them. You know it's it's when they're away from here and then they go into an environment of the college environment and they look around and no one's doing it. So you know it's it's difficult for a young kid. Either looted do it a couple times and I realized there's only so much coach can say but how? What means are you employing to try to drill that into their head or do they already know it and you just have to let them do whatever they they think is right. Now I mean when we talk about it all the time, Paul and you know the biggest point them. You may not feel like you matter because you're redshirt your fourteen. But you don't you don't do this right you know and you you can infect to starter. So. Or senior that you know loses part of their season or towards loses the end of their senior year. So you know it's really a big challenge. Have you sought at all because we always when we get the schedules which we did the other night you you tend to look at, Road Games home games and man this school has an advantage here or there but nobody really knows do they when you go when you go on the road and there's fifteen sixteen, seventeen, thousand people, it's not going to be the same road environment and I know you won't know until you get there but I'm just curious if someone who is coach at a lot of different places and a lot of really tough environments, what are your thoughts? Well, it's GonNa be completely different. You know definitely won't need silent count that's for sure so. We'll be in Tiger stadium into the season and you know we'll be able to to. To yell the audibles to the quarterback on the five yard line. So you know it it'll be very different I think kind of almost be eerie as you play you know for the players you know like. Lap for the SEC this would be less than a spring game. You know attendance so. it'll be very strange.
Is Bitcoin Heading To $10,000?
"With back to you know we still get a higher loan bitcoin. Looks Good Pulled back ten thousand would be splendid. Love to see it. It will just. Translate to higher lot way bravely breathing. that. You know the question that what someone got very well said to me. When I sit on a remember what the exact question though I also Irrelevant but the answer was will debry of breath out. And of course, the answer is you do both right and that's what markets do they breathing they breathe out. Now. This is what we're saying here. They breed in up up up up the breath out they breathe in the pop-up they breathe out. That's what they do. So. Is there a concern none? What are we got up pullback? Am I saying great trading conditions? Not a great deal night. If I do say them I think tomorrow if we get a small bullish candle. To Morrow think that's going to be. Nothing we're going to see lot of opportunity at the it's the it's a twelve hour and the daily with my focus is at. Bitcoins at eleven thousand, seven, hundred, and thirty I down two percent. Theorem six, six once bounced four hundred is down full percent. Except pays down four and a half percent twenty, eight point nine struggling with that thirty cents once again bitcoin cat below three hundred to ninety two, fifty, five deaths three point six percent lot twenty, sixty, one dollars ninety one cents down a half. Base vague to a six down five cal Donna twelve point nine down five and a half botanist onto two point nine at twenty two dollars thirty, six cents. A US down six point six, three dollars study foreign link flat sixteen dollars eighteen very sure little talk the about the top ten. Why will there's not much more detail to give you? Am I looking for shorts? No. I'm looking for longs. No. What am I doing I'm whitening. Okay. The market right now is in a pullback phase is this pool by going to be a lodge pullback by on a weekly? We're GONNA about the ten thousand. We're GONNA get. Where are we going to? I don't know I do not know. What I can say Is. It. This is all very much part of the plan. If we GONNA pull back ten thousand and that weekly comes into that Area. I, say that it's extraordinarily bullish because it's like starting your engines. You know it comes back you know. It it's like I used to be summarized to compete in swimming. Now when you go to a swimming event. It's it's grueling. You know you tend to go. Well, what's My pet events MoD pet event was a fifty in hotter Mehta sprints, freestyle, and butterfly. Yet Butterfly worst start ever was my best struck ever wanted absolute shock. That was body. Would you do that to me? Anyway. You if you'll forced if you'll mate, you've got and I try and spice it and things at once for certain. Types of. But if I was the guy from say. Doing the Honda made about a fly get out of the pool at a ten minute break, and then do the Honda made fray. Then the hunter made a freeze probably going to suffer I'm not going give it the same amount of energy exertion the I gave the Honda bottle. Or by strikes are extraordinarily physical. Specially Butterfly. So that's what I mean. By the further we go up, it can become less good. To have that break in the middle to have that NAS claimed pull the very predictable. Okay. Great. Yet, this trend is looking fantastic and then to sit push on, is GonNa have that follow through of course, that's a repulsive for me. Now I'm not suggesting that we're GONNA get there at this stage. I haven't seen any confirmation of anything other than as a trend with a bit of divergence on many of these jobs especially bitcoin. So it's about why saying what we get over the next two tomorrow is GonNa be well, the next twenty, four hours from closing his right now is going to be interesting. Cannell could make. You know sorry could create many opportunities It's certainly getting there. We'll have to wait and
Chris Korfist on New Advances in Sprint Training
"Christi Man it's good to have you back. I know I think you have a story about you. You are Carlos now right aren't you writing like a kick bike around and you're getting a hamstring workout what's going on with that? Yeah. So we have three cars which in most families is plenty But my daughter has taken a car up to Minnesota and she usually works during the day. She's GonNa go to Iowa the. Sun's. Going to be a junior but he said his license since December and he has volleyball every day. And then tournament sound the weekend, which I don't know is legal or not these this day and age. But basically, I'm a fifty one year old person that doesn't have a car I have a licensed but most my days and evenings I am Carlos. So. A couple of years ago more than a couple years ago I saw Franz Basch was playing around with the kick bike and John Prior. told me about it so. I've become the kick bike master of Chicago I am the. Middle aged guys zooming around on a red kicked bike. My record so far is fourteen miles. which. Is Pretty good on a kick bike I did it in forty minutes but I. Go Grocery shopping go pick up Britos things like that. Throw in my backpack and I kicked bike around the western suburbs of Chicago, which it may look easy. But kick biking is much harder than riding a bicycle It's your one leg is peddling through. So there's a ton of hamstring involved in the other leg. It's like in this isometric squad before. So. He can get low enough to get your foot on the ground. So. That's been my summer so far kicked. biking around trying to get food or go get whatever I need. I. It's awkward like I go to the wine shop, which isn't too far away but we're a backpack in my backpack I got a bottle of wine in a Burrito like. This is Kinda messed up. Usually, it's like a fourteen year old something like that but it's not often you see a fifty one year old how ask you do you? Do you take that thing through timing gates? How fast is that thing go all well, I have these hotshots because sometimes I just go out for the exercise and there's all these trails nearby and you got these hotshot bikers with all their gear on. And I always like to wear street clothes just to make them feel bad and zoomed by the bikers. So I guess I can go fourteen sixteen miles an hour when I get it moving. That's that's not too bad for non motorized. Yeah. But that's a that's a that's a short burst hold that for awhile. You tired really fast. Yeah I was just GonNa say this is a good segue innocent things that you've been some recent sprint ideas and human locomotion ideas but like the spiralling nature things, right like you got one leg, that's has one job and the other leg has the other job and I know you've been talking about the Lila Somme symmetrical stop there said you feel do you feel like you get a little like spiraling action or how long do you go on one leg before you switch to the other see don't like start running circles or do you care does it Usually I do just because I get bored I counted ten so I do ten pedals But then sometimes I go let's see how many I can do on this leg before my. My metric leg, the leg that's on the machine or bike completely is burning and then I'll switch so. Something like that, and I'm usually listening to a podcast. So I'm doing that too. So I'm. To me, there's nothing worse than doing aerobic work I. Think it's just mind numbing. So between going fast and kick by listening to a podcast and. Worrying about crashing in which legs burning word that usually is enough to keep my mind off the fact that I'm kicked biking and it does get to pissed at my children for taking all the cars and using the a kick bite. I think life is interesting. We don't have a car you know. It definitely I feel like there's always something to be learned I I I was Gonna say I will say as I've gotten older too I. I definitely appreciate having a good aerobic system but finding creative ways to do it not just running and in one direction and all that type of thing. So I did your bear crawl push saying this morning. Nice and that's hard it. Oh Yeah. No, it's super hard. It gets it gets tough like it's it gets logarithmic. You know like one, two, three, four whatever. But then he's getting five, six seven I need to come up with a way to make that more like 'cause everyone's GonNa get stuck at like eight you know or you can just rest the really longtime. Yeah. It I thought it would be easier than it actually was. Yeah, for me. I would do if it was me and someone else doing push ups and it was like you could either do two competitions. One would be just how many push ups can you do in two? Let's do that crawl thing. I would do way at the crawl thing because I get to rest and I'm way better read and it gives me a chance to like the take a break and I've rule more aerobic and all that the last stick. So I I think I, just kind of a cheater way for me to make it look like I'm a little stronger, my body or something I don't know. I feel like it's got I was thinking. It's like you do get the gait cycle in between every bilateral. So I agree I felt that same thing I you know I think the crawling huge is everyone's lack down. And we're lucky because we have gym center basements but still you start cranking off pushups just for something to do and. You can it gets a little numbing after a while and you can feel the impact that? Are Great. I crank off one hundred fifty push-ups but I'm not walking as well in my shoulder kinda hurts now. What am I really doing here is it really important to do that many push ups or is it more important that I feel pretty good after I do the exercise? Yeah. I was doing one of the last traditional strength programs I down for a while and ever since all the lockdown stuff and the weight rooms have been a little more sparse. I didn't have a barbell for quite a while, but one of the last programs that I was doing was just easy strength just two sets of five everyday basically three sets of three and I was Barbell benching every day and I haven't Jack, yeah I'm getting older but I haven't I haven't jacked my shoulder up that bad in a long time like my left shoulder was dying after awhile and every time I do those crawls like it's just like it's all good. You know you just a way to mitigate the same stress and you're back in your shoulder blades being pinned. You know, of course too
Biden, Harris Make Campaign Debut In Delaware
"On the national stage this afternoon as the Democratic choice for vice president. KCBS political reporter dug, Sovereign says Senator Harrison, former vice president, President Joe Biden introduced themselves as a ticket at a high school gym in Delaware. It was an awkward setup, Biden and Harris wearing black masks in a Wilmington gym, with no cheering throng of delirious supporters. Just their staff, Media and Secret Service. As the former vice president introduced the woman he hopes will be the next one. You're next vice president of States comma Harris Kamala Harris seemed a bit nervous and stiffer than usual issue, read a prepared text that wove her own campaign themes with Biden's, including a blistering attack on the policies and failures of the Trump administration. Let me tell you somebody who has presented my fair share of arguments in court. The case against Donald Trump and Mike Pence is open and shut there A said Barack Obama handed President Trump a great economy, but like everything else he's inherited. He drove it into the ground. Phew! Thank Joe Biden for entrusting her with his job, and she made sure to talk about her husband, Doug and their kids who called her step Mom allowed first, but that title has evolved. Since then. I've had a lot of titles of in my career. And certainly vice president will be great. But Mama Love will always be the one that means the most. Now it's on to the campaign and 83 day sprint. That'll see Harris crisscrossing battleground states making as many appearances as the pandemic will allow. She and Biden seek not just a victory, she said, but a mandate Doug Sovereign KCBS. California has been nearly
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

"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.

"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..

Yes in memory Blair Levin of the Brookings Institution used to work for the Federal Communications Commission at every step. This process is involved. Things have never happened before eleven. Says there are several reasons for that the FCC chairman early signal that he'd approved the plan despite questions the Department of Justice sending the Plan Dan back to the company to rework and a coalition of state attorneys general stepping up with a lawsuit to block the merger and usually the FCC the DOJ Ajay and the states are all on the same side.
