This is John Hancock. I don't know Flores Friday as we conveyed. Understand birdie at 4 o'clock our revenues they'll play at 430 to go up big we give it to 500 plus stuff going on this weekend including something that doubles. Passed me by. The Wells Fargo championship is taking voice this weekend. It's just not quite battered girl. But this would have been a week. So. Also going on this so weakened pay the Charlie I turned down all weekend long but I'd have 7 o'clock game tonight. Fireworks Friday night. And and then it's pink nights tomorrow. And then it's princes and pirate day you with a matinee at 205 on Sunday at dvd ballpark. TJ's. Still have to decide whether he's going as the processor pirate. A pauper a pirate princes. The bearded Bruce's. So they go their. Problem. The house is bag new us sanctions against North Korea we'll see how that goes senators are vowing to write their own health care bill until you would not reveal woods yesterday wouldn't know we over talking about that that's a big question today what's next for the Republicans. Health care bill motives of the senate. And he did make a rather look at a whole lot different than it does now there was. GOP senator Lamar Alexander somewhat skeptical. He's of Tennessee he said days among those Republicans who say that the senate will in fact right its own legislation saying yesterday we're were riding a US senate bill not passing this house bill. No we'll take whatever good ideas we find their that meet our goals. So off I assume this saw it comes to a crescendo sometime this summer. The Republicans only hold a 5248 majority in the senate to they can only afford to lose two GOP votes that likely to be tricky. Because because something has to be produced there will be acceptable both to a more moderate members and a hard line conservatives. And so now your starting here the names of Ted Cruz and Michael Lee at Rand Paul and because that's that's who you got to convince over in the senate polar Politico is reporting today that some changes that are. Being considered include making the tax credits more generous. Strengthening protections so that the coverage for people with preexisting conditions is so expensive as to be unaffordable. And changing the Medicaid repeal. With Republicans from states that expanded Medicaid a particularly leery of taking it away. And then in addition all that in order to avoid having to get sixty votes to overcome the democratic filibuster Republicans are using a process called reconciliation. Now which order requires a majority and that means that they have to follow strict parliamentarian rules salt in order to do that. They may the have to weird take out significant parts of the house bill including the provision. Don't let states get waivers from coverage requirements. Which is the very. Change that got the house freedom caucus to vote in favor of the legislation in the first place so. Yes that was a nice little victory that they had yesterday and all party in the rose garden and the whole nine yards but. They still got a long long way to go. I in the end if the house doesn't agree with whatever the senate comes up with. Then members from those two chambers will have to work on now reconciliation likens legislation. And and resolve whatever differences that they that they have and I'll have some. And and then hope that enough Republicans in the house of the senate agreed to that final legislation to get it passed by both of them. But that's probably easier said than done so I'll ask general we stand on all of that stuff the really serious stuff and no life there's. There's there's there's other Hillary Clinton's gonna launch a pack two to fund trump resistance groups. Should there be a law and if you lose a presidential election year forced to. Stay out of limelight for where future. It it is something. That you have to move. Writer says the Justice Department is begin mayor criminal poll of are in trouble view goober. And yesterday we found out that Carolina panther Michael Oher. Who whose love life was told and a 2009 movies be bland blind side accused of assaulting maneuvered driver in Nashville but I don't get to story at all and I have a gun and started all the aspects of it but. Police said yesterday it'd be Hoover driver claimed that he and or got into an argument on April the fourteenth as in Tennessee. When he was they're giving a ride to the thirty year old offensive lineman. And a four of his friends and the driver claims that he put his hand on ores face. So there in an argument and then over driver puts his hand on Michael or states. That's the story is coming out of there. And then lower or. Knocked him to the ground. Why I gotta tell you Ireland. I'm just assuming that. If you go put your hand and somebody's face that weighs about 300 pounds. There's probably a good chance that you're gonna be meet the ground. So I don't quite get that one now at all. Com. He says that door knocked into the ground and adult or kicked him in the leg before his friends restrained him. All right so maybe that's. Maybe that's the assault part. Answers are always said that they were aware of the incident involving nor he's been ordered to appear for booking next week on a misdemeanor assault and now. Many camp started today's all the raw read all the Iraqis enough free agents and selector under down there are two that the stadium division. And we're getting our first looks at our draft picks and and national missile force so much storage virtual world of talk about politics in a workplace. Now work at your place. We're people just kind of avoided. There's there's a poll out that says political talk in the workplace since the election is hurting job performance we'll talk about it next. Creating a new survey today for the American Psychological Association which should just sounds like it's right down my relatives. Took on the house Streep messed up about the American psychological tools. And retired about a political talk in the workspace. And I thought well I'm. I'm probably Vieira the worst one to actually know what goes on to work players about that because my workplace. Involves political talk. Not all the time but. A lot of the time. And we're not to child we hear about. What we have what we believe what we don't believe and we think about somebody you and what we don't think about some reviewed and what you think of us know you don't think of us and. But I would assume that just your general law office. Paul's been divert category. That wouldn't be like radio station where there's political talk going on and actually when I think about what's going on in the halls here. We're not talking politics. Sales department and programming department are talking politics. Upper management and an air staff aren't necessarily talking politics. It its engineers I've talked recently about having friends that used to work with back west. Colorado and down south and Texas and so on and so forth but to a Colorado friends especially and and friends that are moved out California. And no there's so much further left and then me it's not even funny. On and it led us well on the reasonably good. Leads me to believe that you're environment has a lot to do with your political police ultimately nose rays by Goldwater Republicans of the foundation I had was a little bit to look it was a little bit right anyway. But I fought against set for a long long time in July tend to do is start adopting the conservative parts of it. I'm. Took this new survey from the American Psychological Association found that American workers are more likely to say now all. Odd then before sale last November's presidential election that they feel stressed and less productive because of political discussions at work. And it's just like the party's yum it's gotten. It did its distanced all of votes. There is no give way anymore you blow you make personal decisions on somebody based on their political beliefs. And it's gotten to be us against them mentality and now all of a sudden you may find yourself losing tolerance for somebody. There have been the first I've got out in Colorado and California are chime in on FaceBook a lot about politics. And I've said before there are people there that I just. Absolutely. On my list of were really close. Friends. But their politics is just completely different than mine and quite frankly. I don't wanna know all their trap or read all their diatribes on no FaceBook idea I don't really necessarily want it pushed in my face. Com how big a gap there is between my good friends out there and meet. Politically. We seem to have common ground on. And a million other areas. Oh LeBeau love of the west and the mountains. And streams and fishing. And music. And the arts. And in some cases sports. And in some cases. All authors reader edited the stuff that we've bred does this that the other I mean we've got a whole lot in common things that would that we have interest in. But the one place where we don't really CI Dalai is politics I don't know if if it's good policy dude just. Not talk about it. But I mean that's an essence kind of what happens when I get together with my friends out there are those a liberal when he's out there in the wellstone. And I wander into the good to Colorado or I thought California or something like that we just don't talk politics and I think terrorists. A future that is why our man that is because of we get into a political conversation we can talk religion before we can talk politics. And the political thing has just gotten to be now. I am in a fight if forward to voice any. Support for Donald Trump and sort of some of these friends they would think I was crazy. But I think they're kind of wacky per. As you know they us bound. Again I can't understand why Hillary is not president and. Told the results of the survey I'd I'd assigned Dick uninteresting did does it get uncomfortable in your office do you feel. Stressed and less productive. Because of political discussions at work. If your bosses far left in your far right or vice Versa bankruptcy or that could be. 26% of workers say that they have felt tense or stressed out. As a result of political discussions at work since the election that's up from 17% last September. Now. I think all of us are gut. I think just the result of the election was such a surprise even distraught supporters. That there was some tension tension and and and stress. Just on the results of the election even if that's the way you wanted did to turn out. It still kind of a shocked that it worked out oil. 15% said that they had difficulty getting work done because of political discussions 14% say they have been less productive. And 13% so that the work quality is suffered. So I you know that's doesn't get really too specific and as to how you've been less productive or how your quality of work has suffered. But to some extent or another isn't it after you know suck it up and get over it. 54%. Say they have discussed politics at work since the election and for 40% of those workers it is caused at least one negative outcome. Such as reduced productivity. Poor work quality difficulty getting work done a more negative view of co workers Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding. Is that is that the root of all of this the more negative view of co workers. Causes you to have a negative outcome or redo a step wrecked productivity up a portal work quality. She's detention it to the attention of the world attention of the country is leaking and do. It into your workplace. You feeling jets are stressed out or increased workplace hostility now obviously if you got a complete lack code is a work and work. A guy who's got as much taller code tolerances is some of our callers or media on a bad date. 15% say they had gotten into an argument about politics at work. 44%. Say they avoided some coworkers because of their political views. So. I'm just curious have you noticed any of that in your workplace you don't have to you go by a fake name and not talk about to rename your company and auto of but I mean have you noticed especially since the election that things are. Because we've kind of been that. Stagnant on on progress in politics now for years. Republicans were standing in the way Obama all the way. Honor understand to some extent why the probe of why the productivity and and negativity has increased just because the guys in the offices increased have you noticed that in your workplace 70457. All of intent. This is the latest job. Airline debacle delta flight. Barely off the flight who would you look from top receivers like other. Now you're the first one bear get yourself into a PR nightmare that's one thing and if you're the second one no then you probably should have paid attention to the first one but nonetheless. But if you're the third one. It's just dump. Somebody says that a memo out now saying no. From now on if someone is drug off the flight to recreate received it'll be the co pilot. And then and then see if any seats. Our new policy is not to kick people off the plane we just let him be a co pilot. And somehow or another all we announced that cease opened up on deployed. Now there was another story is another story. So let's say. United. American Airlines went onto the other one. Just came out this week with the take away more legroom suffering. And then you've got to story that's going on right now delta apologizing for booting the family Austria flight. Odors delta now you have Southwest. Airlines. Passenger Peggy fueling. Southwest Airlines. She boards her flight from Chicago to Columbus, Ohio. Turns off her cell phone as the plane rolls away from the gate. She and her fellow passengers don't get very far because the plane suddenly turns around on the tarmac at midway airport and taxis back to the gate. Peggy in the rest of the passengers had no idea what was happening once the plane was anchored at the gate a flight attendant approached Peggy. And asked her to get off. He thought she had boarded the wrong plane but when she got back inside the terminal gate agent told her to call her husband. He had been forced to contact Southwest Airlines because Peggy Sloan was turned off. Luckily the airline managed to get the twos spouses in contact with each other at the last minute it turned out. That pays 24 year old son had suffered a serious head injury and was in a coma in Denver. And so dull husband gets hold of the airline who gets hold of a pilot who has the flight turnaround so they can get Peggy. And so they tell Peggy the news. And AJ had barely taken it bad and before a staffer explained to her that the airline had read ticketed her. On the next direct flight to Denver. And arranged all the other practical details. Want to you know all that stuff. So they offered AL private waiting area rerouted her luggage. Allowed her to board first packed a lunch for when she got off the plane in Denver. Her luggage was delivered to where she was staying and she even received a call from southwest asking our son was doing. I just figured maybe you'd wanna hear about confident airline for a couple of seconds. This seemingly had their act together and and did things the way that they are supposed to be done. I and I don't know if that's as simple as saying if this was me. How what I wanted to handle but I pretty much is the way of your business. Treat people wait you would like to be treated so her son by the way has fully recovered from a serious head injury and no. And all of as well but there you go finally. An airline story. With a positive twist. And a happy ending. Now I think ultimately it may not really matter in the long run anyway because. We've all got a hundred years left anyway. Stephen Hawking. Is giving humanity a I'm pretty tall order colonize Mars because. We're gonna have to get off berth and a hundred years. Last year. After claiming that tell humans have a thousand years left on earth member balking saying that it's well Lester well he's not 900 years off of it. We're going to also fast and an investor we cantor accorsi straight so hawking says that today in a new documentary. That we instead have about a hundred years until we need to jump ship deserved. Is overwhelmed by over population climate change disease and artificial intelligence. And they say it might be a bit premature to start packing but the BBC's expedition new earth will explore technology and scientific advances that will enable. Life in space or a colony. On another planet. Now I'm Sam written just the other day and I'm thinking well let's refers I'm not going to be here a hundred years. Quite frankly I doubt very serious they'll be here at thirty years. I'll be leaving people behind it may. They got a granddaughter or grandson or not quite sure yet I guess we find out Mother's Day weekend. We saw the pictures dishonored and there's a sonogram. They blocked out. When one of the key areas to find out whether or not it's or girl. So we're gonna we're doing a Vera plant and one of the news I guess it's is and always been a big elaborate deal the gender identity thing. Today that he's terrible parties for that today back in the fifties in the sixties and seventies that this a new deal all. Is that this part of the new spoiled millennial generation thing. Generation X. or I or whatever. I'm so anyway were they were they were planning this big extravagant deal I don't know where we're going we're gonna go to won't paint ball players are they hadn't. Now there are gonna do the the reveal there another just decided to have all the family over for robe on Mother's Day and they'll announce them. The gender then. Everybody at a family is assuming its aborted because. On the outside of the family this would be Susan's son my stepson. Ron's son. And on outside of these so called Geiger family. And if they want they always have voice all pigs too so both sides affair with salt. And I have my heart set on her granddaughter. According had sons under the older older walk around. Take dirt pizza places and spoil on. By Dole's Warren. And then when there you don't Wear when they do stuff that. I don't wanna be around or. Things start to get all stinky. And used hand back to mom. And anything if you need to do junior. So I airway job it's why you know I I read stuff like this and I think a hundred years another man that said that we talked about this just recently. If you look at all the changes and have taken place in the last 225 years just from a technological standpoint just computers and and everything else and and now it changes so rapidly. Gosh I have no idea the oh world that my sons. Will. B 64 years old and or that my grandkids will basically you have to existent you'll have a quick. Morris. Was kind of over they get to do it here. I was kind of hoping they get a chance to see Rocky Mountain National Park. You know drive from Miami down two of the keys to a few western. See the Grand Canyon. I don't know if I wanna go to Mars and I don't want them to go to mark. And I. Am and. Steve hawking says we got a hundred years and we got to get out of here we got to go to Mars. And others in new doc out called the BBC expedition neuwirth and it explores technological and scientific advances. That would allow life in space or colony on another planet and it'll show Hawkins ambition isn't his fantastical as it all sounds. That's science. Fact is closer to science fiction than we ever thought according to BBC and I know many of you discount anything that has to do with science because you've been told to. Elon Moscow space acts. He is already planning to send humans to Mars in the next decade and know while a colony on Mars is maybe a good idea. I'm bringing new scientific discoveries. Beat columnist Eric may access talking needs to give his head a shake your V honestly believes that Mars the moon or anywhere also in our solar system will be. More hospitable. Then earth even after a host of disasters quote. Just cleaning up our own mess and starting over by. Arising from the rubble seems more practical. And more affordable than figuring out how to grow food or survive radiation poisoning on Mars. He wrote this informs. The solution he thinks to all our problems here on earth is. We says yes somehow the grass is always greener for some people are even when it's on the dead red planet. I just think it's instinct hockey is a fascinating guy. I I don't know. Don't know that I can go and scientifically. But they rim seem to me that. If the earth has a hundred years god love more to say without enough. When you're running your condition. Just beneath. There's a fascinating story I find it fascinating it's running in the Charlotte Observer right now and it's been run the last couple days and it's on the website doing in fact we just put a link up but don't do well on the Hancock bridge that it WB two Beckham. About. Vanity license plates that get rejected. And you read some of of a new goal c'mon. And then you read other ones. Because in this story that TJ is putting up on the Hancock originally BT dot com there is a link. About halfway through what this says a full list of the band plays can be viewed on line at Charlotte Observer dot com and if you click on that link it'll take your right to. PDF list of 7000. Rejected license plates energy wander through those 7000 plates. It just think to yourself who thought they were getting this one. I mean it's always just downright vulgar. I'm. Some of them a good that the one so I against the bill the ones are as I drive around town. So he people drive me nuts because if you see a license plate like that you have to decode it. It gets to be a challenge. And if you don't get didn't get a decoded and this he gets frustrated. I have a vanity plate but it says it doesn't take a lot of explanation. Thereof that they have the range. Of band license plates. They they talk in the article about political slogans. L a CK HE RUP lock her up. Well we all know what that's from that's bad that's the chance Komondor rallies a trump. Presidential campaign DMP trump Donald Trump that was barred. F trump. Apparently there is no one named Fred and his family. Or friend. Or what that have stands work. Impeach 45 I MP CH 45. Not my day. PRZ. Rejected. I you know why I I guess. If it's not vulgar than why can't you make some sort of a statement I guess that North Carolina. Our good invaded that department motor vehicles is on don't necessarily wanna be the the conduit to Europe free expression but. Obama sucks as you X turned down. And then you have stuff. From people of the north DM and why in key KEL. Or damn Yankee eighty anything or go god Damn Yankees is gonna get turned down. Somebody applied for drug dealer. Drug DL are. Really dodger get mad.

I eight. Heels. It asks you after you. Not yet have that plates. Math sucks. Rejected two. Head WB BMY. And gentlemanly does your staff writer over your own business journal Charlotte business journal dot com new addition is out today we try to argue us. Hi Erica when he's not announcing a new health care plan would president. Enough Fridays until 4 o'clock. Where we were looking at all right yesterday we're just think a guy that just interchangeable. Speaking of health care I trust that your recovered from last week. Yeah I'll him. I don't know what I had but it was a lively 24 hours I can tell you yeah. Never felt bad. So I don't know is that food boys I don't know what it is. Got a better I don't know it's generally not going to be good news when I get a text from you before 8 AM. Separate hot dog as it is is it's not but yeah I know I have no idea what that was all about that so I'm glad you're you you're fully amended and and back edit their. By not being able to talk to you last week I didn't got to get a chance to talk to you about Dale Earnhardt junior denied his retirement announcement and Noah and what kind of impact that's gonna have on a subject to you and I've talked about a million times and and that's NASCAR. The attendance is Luzader is there have been at a loss TV numbers are a drop and and all the sudden now you have. Without question the most popular driver saying. I'm done after this year well that may help this year but it's boy it it really puts NASCAR in the cross hairs of question marks. Up for the future Bennett. Yeah I think you're never right we've talked about this a lot in the last few years and eat even before that announcement. I have like many others are considered this court could be ending deeper trouble. Because. Various factors from the millennial not having much interest in Carter's generally. You know the loss of television. Interest. All kind of things going on with NASCAR and this is just you know sort of final blow if you will. Obviously it's not going away but in terms you know that don't carry we saw in the mid nineties and for about ten years or so I don't think there ever getting back. I was gonna say if it prominent if it becomes hockey. And I don't mean has to be disrespectful hockey benefit becomes hockey it's lost a lot of money and a lot of and a lot of momentum from where at one point not that long ago within the last decade we were wondering if this was going to be the third major sort of speak. Yeah and I think you are exactly right that that's the way I viewed it could potentially. They have fallen back to hockey. And certainly you can have a date night business play people can make. A nice living doing that but in terms of cultural cache today in terms you know upward mobility where. At one point NASCAR was comparing itself to the NFL that might have been more grandiose but some others were. Sort of Jordanian on that I don't think there anywhere near that I don't think they're anywhere near the NBA or Major League Baseball I just think it's. You have to rethink it happened to tell auto makers the recession all these things and they tended to hit NASCAR harder than they hit. Those other sports they were. Included in that victory so yeah this is just another difficult situation because young when you look at it certainly. Really recognizable. Beyond Dale Earnhardt junior to just the average person out there from NASCAR there's really not anybody. No I knew it and then that's the kind of a weird situation and its own right I don't think the load on those in the Kozlowski used in the world or the I have enough charisma too good to polo sport then. The one guy who has set who has joined the great says joined Earnhardt senior has joined petty. Seven championships Jimmie Johnson. Good looking guy nice family good good person. Popular but bid can't move the needle. For the sport I had I don't quite understand that but Torre as good as he's been dominant as he's been in the time that he's been a driver. People are just not enamored with him I don't I Baghdad bids it's kind of unfair. Yeah you know but Jimmie Johnson particular reminds me Mike Trout in Major League Baseball mean people who really follow baseball. No he's the best player in the game but yet the average person and they don't. Know the name if they have a name they certainly don't know defaced. And in Jimmie Johnson. It somewhere they are you saying he's sort of the all time greats no doubt about it but for whatever reason he just hasn't really been embraced just yet retain significant degree and so. I don't know Lloyd. NASCAR can do and they tinkered obviously with the race format plenty of race fans like it but forgetting the general. Sports audience back they tried so many things candy at least to date. The numbers just keep going down. And maybe that's one of the things it's hurting him because they have tried all sorts of things in the last seven or eight years and now it's gotten to the point where it's almost confusing. They are the rule changes they've made six years ago are now different from the ones they made four years that are now different from the ones that they made two years ago that are no different from the ones the running this year. Yeah and now I you know I have obviously been in this area long term but I didn't grow up with the sport and while I think I understand the business side pretty well. And I've been to more than a handful of races I still can't can't tell you held the point system works and I just have no idea car. Reputation back to the old keep it simple stupid don't moniker because if people have to go take a community college course to understand the sport you're you're doomed. You know weighing in any NFL it's real simple you know that everybody can it get to the server that everybody gonna fight to get to the Super Bowl and whoever wins the Super Bowl is going to be the champion and auto racing is always. PLE. And much more complex for some obvious reasons but and as you say when you daddy and other layers that it makes it even less accessible to. Newcomers so together they got a lot of work to do and obviously this is the big month for sure immerse speedway with the two races. And this industry is very important to to Charlottesville. But it does feel. And it's obviously. Diminished air from what it was 20042005. And getting back to that level seems to be. A really long journey. I don't know if it was you who planted the cedar there was sort of sales that I had very conversational we're talking about Major League soccer and the Smith's interest in now there was probably you'll. Well this said possibly. Their compelling reason for wanting to get into MLS is because the sport that they brought all of their things invested in news. Is diminishing. And they need release they need a whole rundown to keep the empire alive. Yeah that that that's just a hunch I have I know they would never say that you know obviously they're they're very heavily invested in a publicly traded company that owns a great racetracks and their family has been around the sport. For what sixty years or so but. I just don't see how you. Rebuild this thing in any. Sort of reasonable short period of time and it just feels like NASCAR is really struggling for relevance for you on. Where in Charlotte this is the hub of NASCAR and you know age it's not on the front of the sport section very often it's not on the tip of the Tonga people talking and it's not even on the sport's marquee piece ended someplace and go and so I don't hurled troubling side. And nobody's talking about it anymore on Monday either you talked about colonials I don't think memorials as silly all agree with fights either I know pipes kind of carried the sport to know I don't think parents and in that aspect of it to. Well as well so it's I don't know I I don't know what the solution is but I know the day Dale Junior all walking away from a does not going to be a but is not going to be helpful and no it won't kill the sport. But it's there it certainly will. Or hurt their that their comeback. Yeah that that's exactly right and it just hit it it it feel like it's gotten to the point where. Marketing horror increased. He is simply not enough to matter how brilliant you are you could be you know bring inherited the people who run apple and I don't know that they did. Yes sort of lifted the ratings and the interest. All that much can you go from being here probably you're just an even if you didn't care about NASCAR. As you say on Mondays you always at least through osmosis knew that. Dale Earnhardt or later Jeff Gordon or whoever. Had won the race percent and it happened and now it feels like you can go weeks or months without really having any sensitive. What's happening out there. But you know that was that mean that was an old world all right because if everybody had their driver tilt until you would turn on the TV and you would find your driver and for most other sellers the black number three but. If your driver is still on the lead lap than your watch and and if your drivers not that you may bill parts of and also good to do. The other thing that I think is not as strong as what he used to be there used to be a pretty hard core. Ford or Chevrolet argument going on and I'm not so sure that exists in any longer either. You know I think that's completely gone and believe me I'm wonder I'm always leery of things were better back swing and you know way back when but I think it's some of those transport for NASCAR. Have certainly hurt them in the one with the manufacturer is a stable and our members many here in the mid nineties and there are constant arguments about whether Forbes was presidential leadership region afforded itself like I'm speaking another language right now I mean people believe in and forget about Doug drug NASCAR even those who were watching before every manufacturer debate this used to be a big part of the court trying to. And nobody ever envisioned that phrase. The Toyota will run real good today. I it into it and believe me understand the other world marches on and you that you have to stay within it I'm not criticizing them taking money from Toyota or anything like a hundred. But I'm just saying is that what they key part of hand in the and that support was the debate in the back and forth about the manufacturers and that's something it's gone and I don't think it's really coming back. I hornets are in the news so while I talked to Eric about that in just a second no property tax increase. And what that might mean for the ACC network and we'll talk to Eric about that as well when we come back. I'm back Darren Bedford from the Charlotte business journal. Erica last week he has the end I had all sorts of layoffs. And met them at broad and speculation. Because ESPN news and pretty much taken all most of their production stuff and movement and upload to Bristol. So that brings up questions about ACC network and personnel and sorrows so for so give me the cliff notes. Explanation of ESPN's cuts and what that may or may not mean for the ACC network. OK so the cliff notes is ESPN has been out in Valentine would have studios. Four. Gosh fifteen to forty years. They have the SEC network here ESPN you head does a lot of network here and then they have an event division about 200 employees and surely give or take. They cut our realm ten employees may be a few more we're not sure the guys are not disclosing specific numbers as part of this company wide layoffs and because a lot that yet. What you just said is exactly true which is that the ACC network which is coming online in 2019. And is. Likely to be based in Charlotte there are a lot of questions about whether ESPN's continuing. Loss of cable subscribers. In need to reduce costs will exactly to that network being delayed in ESPN in the agency later. On said that no nothing has changed I think there or are a lot of jitters out there at all analysts watching this very closely to see if in fact it changes. Also what does this mean to our companies like 3COM which obviously is associated with us at least by low cal we all used to be one happy family Jefferson pilot sports sold to break our mom went. Already calm but via TV station were owned by inner calm but what does that mean for people like ray come 'cause that's up. That's a production company that televised is ACC events. As I assume as a subcontractor. Yes correct yet they haven't sub license with ESPN. And when the announcement was made last summer by ESP NBA if you see that this network would have started according nineteenth. Rory come. Had it been assured that they will continue to do business with the ACC for example they sell corporate sponsorships they helped them some of their online and web site. Offering a and so the idea is that you would phase out the production side. Break on the ACC as you ramp up. This ESPN owned ATC network and who knows maybe they would still do some production and as a contractor but it would certainly be less and so it looks like break com. I would not have a great deal of disruption beyond what they were already expecting the big question is do you actually have an agency network that. It's going and is it based in Charlie's seems like the answer. Is that if it does go forward it's going to be in Charlotte because the FCC network is the obvious model for what he has BM would do with the ACC. And SEC says by the way is not going anywhere and Paul find bombs from an on going anywhere I assume. It didn't know they are doing now have pretty well by all accounts and live from the SEC Def financial reporting. They have doubled their television revenue over the last three or four years in motion that is attributable. Kitty SEC network as did the wild card here John is more you know what it did be thinking get the is that the the parent company of ESPN and ESPN has lost eleven million to its subscribers give or take over the last 45 years. And it's seven dollars a pop per month of that turned into real money in a hurry like 900 million dollars or so and that's what you're. Taking the hit the loss of that income and then the ever increasing rights fees for ESPN's Hugh Carey NFL NBA and the other sports. And it's almost like retail in the country now retail is dying because people's buying habits are changing. And so the model for ESPN is changing. Because people are now cutting the cord and fighting different ways. To get the contents that they want. What should have there's never destruction of print media I'm sure that would never happen now I think now I I think AM radio and newspapers are pretty pretty pretty darn safe I don't think we have all want to do attitude to have to worry about. Hey I agree weekend and all I talk to you next week. Have a great record on their egos are spared bird senior staff writer Charlotte business journal Cheryl business journal dot com.

Not too much chance for oh white people to hit every Mexican restaurant of the country any talk rose and I drink margaritas. There are 31 point seven million people of Mexican descent in the United States 10% of the total population. So cigarette in my other you don't.

Due beards and what does some miracle elixir is. The answer to that the one thing you can do for dirt thirty to 90 seconds each morning. And icy cold shower. Not a cold a shower but they've blast of 38 degree icy cold water. This causes you to light gas and for error and let loose what they stream of obscenities. Or at least thirty seconds I'll tell you what the benefits of that are just dissect it and me and. So they say if you love. For thirty to 90 seconds each morning. Taken icy cold shower not a whole nation went to. But a blast of 38 degree icy cold water. The kind that would cause you gasp for air and probably let loose with a few words. For at least thirty seconds some of the benefits I'm think about that that first you know. That jump into the pool at first jump into the pool season. That generally have but that's not 38 degree is not what you've got to early wells approval. Anyway they say it triggers deep breathing which in turn increases your oxygen levels Andrew.

I write read thing today if you struggle with acme of Missouri this thing about there's and and an act mean vaccine may soon be on the horizon. Now I never had a really bad acne problem but I mean come on if you were a teenager you had. And it was just the worst because you're always happen middle of the day before you have got a date her silent. And so I got to think it about an acne vaccine would have been a dream come true back when I was a kid right after they have been of the wheel. Tom. So if you struggle that made their some good news on the horizon there may be a vaccine on the way is out at University of California San Diego a dermatology professor by the and Erica enabled Eric on the says that a six year study could lead to a vaccine that might fight that can fight the effects of the act means that the bacteria that causes it. He tells NBC two types of vaccines are in the works a therapeutic one at a preventative one not that they plan on given kids before they ever even reach adolescence. Then if you could knock down acne you would do you know you can take a lot of tanks out of the of the younger pop real up population. Read a thing on today about. Aaron Hernandez. He's the former patriot tight end. Who got himself into some pretty big trouble just recently committed suicide. In jail. And we still haven't seen what the three. Suicide notes that he left behind. Percy can. Contain. But this does give you a little bit of a. He wrote a reference to a biblical passage in LA ink on his forehead and in blood on his prison cell wall and then hung himself for the bed sheet. John 316. Was what he wrote on his forehead. And on the walls. Now John 316 most of you know but just for an update. For god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe within him should not perish but have everlasting life. That's what Aaron Hernandez. Convicted of murder right. Was writing on. Now I assume mr. Hernandez also knows that. And that that you you have to do it. You have to ask forgiveness. For that stuff to. Other words are great and John 316 but they're not necessarily. Free. There's obligations on your part to an order to a fulfill the to complete the circle. Maybe he knew that maybe you didn't I wouldn't judge. They found him about 3 AM on April the nineteenth at this prison his suicide came five days after he was acquitted of the 2012. Gun slayings of two men in a car. Besides the John 316 written on his forehead there appeared to be a large circular blood mark. On each of his feet. On the cell wall there were several drawings and John 316. Apparently written in no blood. And then under the drawings was a Bible open to John 316 and the verse marked in blood. A description of the three notes found next to the Bible were rejected from the report. Anyway it if I find it I guess I find it fascinating. If not to confusing. But. The Pentagon Elena did administer and remind him business but I'm kind of interest and in those suicide but so would look to know who they were written to. I don't know what they sent. I have a subway a great weekend I'm heading out as fast as I can get out to cantina 1511 and stone dressed and we're gonna go out there and hang out nobody 30 this evening and a deuce and Cinco De Mayo and I think there's area talk or twelve with money and wanna solo mom I'm looking forward to that.
