Which is technically the best day of the week. Because it's a high anticipation day. You're thinking about the weekend you only have one more day after today to get to the weekend. You got big plans for the weekend. Forget about it it's gonna rain. But it didn't matter. Rain on the weekend is still a weekend. I don't know who would be a great philosopher was that showed that first but. I believe it was. Meet the couple seconds ago. Our government shut down not present at midnight tonight Woolsey were all that goes Q Breyer on the wire and the WBT newsroom today. Mud could be a it's a government shut down for the second time this year. It's not necessarily expected to. But deny you never know until you're no. Good news is is that Nancy Pelosi is now in front of an open Mike. Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and Charles Schumer agreed to a bipartisan deal yesterday that would fund the federal government for a couple of years and increased federal spending by more than 400 bucks. And Danica and immigration and all that stuff no place to be found anywhere defense spending and domestic spending would be the primary beneficiaries of the deal that was struck yesterday. Which increased by like a 165 billion dollars and a 131 billion dollars a respectively. Over that time for him. And whether that's enough to have come Salome happy Democrats. Who are concerned over baca and or house Republicans though wary of I increased deficit spending. A remains to be seen. And disturb. A little setback by that line increased deficit spending. Concerned about increased deficit spending. We did that start. And that started at thirteen trillion dollars or twelve trillion dollars and a unit in total debt burden. And net net ending cover obligations. That's just that's just a round figure debt that doesn't cover the obligations. True concern. Senate is expected to vote today on an extension through march 43 as well as the a McConnell Schumer budget deal what the house voting on that package later in the day and so almost Q bras on NCR. Well what's going on stock market is taken a beating. Was down 592. At least it was about to six and a half minutes ago when I last looked at it. 610. Thornton has sooner about 600 points. So. This would be the fifth loss for the last six days technology companies. Though leading sector over the past year are taking a beating today banks fell as well Boeing and caterpillar. And I took some of the worst losses so far today. It today we didn't get much help today company earnings report came out today and US companies did. Mostly did well at the end of 24018. But then the number of them had a weak finish to the year and down Hanesbrands has won you hate to think that our whole economy is right now on underwear dodger. Guys guys think about his portfolio and all the city has all of my gosh under shorts are down iron here are they immune system to mrs. One of my dreams and one aspect of my life but I got it's killing my portfolio. Yeah underwear tee shirts and socks their way down reported a similar profit then a smaller profit than investors had expected. And it's forecast for the year didn't deliver up to. Analysts' estimates either and then iRobot. Don't rumba. Vacuum people don't you have one of those TJ. We'll go buy some more. Apparently you are purchased didn't help. They plummeted 30% after it took projected small annual profit to know Wall Street was expecting so. Said that that's what aren't that bad that's what's alleged thing about the stock market is it runs on stuff like that. Bet underwear report. You know. The stock markets are different from the rest of us so you don't you don't. Ill fitting underwear can affection all sorts of different ways. Duke is that. This for Saturday night where Tar Heels here that on the news eleventh indicted on three WBT. Pregame starts seven. And gave an 8 o'clock a bully that's the way that goes. The Olympics gets started it today opening ceremonies until tomorrow mobile talk about the Olympics little bit Larry you're on Jimmy drop below us signed a five year deal with the goes forty niners. 137. Point five million dollars five years. Haven't done the math on that. Think that's. That's Bobby cherry money. And the NBA trade deadline is today and I haven't seen anything happened with the well with the hornets they got their senator yesterday from a New York. But that was no big deal as of 11:55. This morning ESPN is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers were staying persistent in trying to construct a deal for kemba. But there remains no traction error and then after all that happened. Cleveland traded their entire team. They traded Isiah Thomas and no forward Channing Frye. And their 20181. Round pick bearers. Not the one that they have from Brooklyn which apparently by rules now they can't trade until the trade they can't get rid of that draft pick until the year. And tell the draft. But they traded debt Isaiah and Channing Frye and their first round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance junior. So Isiah Thomas off to yet another team. The heat traded Dwyane Wade back to Miami Heat in exchange for a heavily protected second round pick that sounds like a gonna retire after the season move would like to do it back core I started. They acquired Rodney hood Cleveland did and the Utah from the Utah Jazz and George Hill from Sacramento as part of a three team deal. Sacramento gets Joseph Johnson. Any month Shubert. And a 20/20. Second round pick via Miami and new targets Jae Crowder. And and Derrick Rose. And so Cleveland has sort of been not as active as anybody at the trade deadline there's been a few other deals and there are but nothing really of note percent. And no give rise on that what does that do trade deadline does it end at three so it's done so in Los something is does have been announced yet to. The hornets. Been doing it and so on totaled 10-Q for us on that as as time goes on the atrium. They made the big announcement yesterday that I Charlotte based Carolinas healthcare system was changing its name to atrium atrium so they could be a little bit more encompassing in other words. And they started to leak out yesterday. By being called Carolinas healthcare system. That limited in them and their scope in this time of not just health care mergers. But I mean come on the whole world over the last twenty years has been one big merger went off when I got to this radio station we had eight stations than we were bought. And and we ended up in our group I don't know what the numbers are there more how many stations to greater media have. Forty. I have no idea. And now intercom. Which just merged with CBS and our two or 300 stations are somewhat passive. That's and it's a way it's probably happened in whatever industry you're in as well that the days of though working for the guy. Now with his office in the corner office are done we're all working for conglomerates were all low beholden to the stockholders were all. That's the way our world it's it's change well Charlotte based Carolinas healthcare system change their name to atrium yesterday re branding. So they can and then they announced today that they're buying this nab a cent health which is say healthcare organization in Georgia. So they got I had to make the announcement yesterday so they could then. Absorb the Georgia. I healthcare organization. So I think they're to to some extent they're been waiting for health afraid for a name change. I never sent healthy is Macon Georgia based. And it will become part of atrium I assume they're assuming that name as well. And by being called atrium that Brenda takes the boundaries off you know not to are confined to the Carolinas anymore now you can know growing and that's exactly what they've done by this move. In a Georgia. The. The new public. Nonprofit corporation expected to be one of the largest hospital systems the United States employing 90000. People operating sixty hospitals. Atrium already had had forty hospitals and about 65000. Employees. And never sent to has thirty facilities including hospitals and about 6300. Employees so if you add that all together you've got. You you you you've been you've grown considerably. So what atrium allows them to go outside of the confines of the Carolinas and go out and get bigger and be all encompassing so. I'm for that matter I'd boomer and I were talking about this old earlier and now we've decided to I now call ourselves John Boyd Billy yeah. So well that'll make us a little bit more encompassing and don't make it sound like we're better than we are. So. So welcome to the John boy and. Boomer show. Yeah. There you that you don't name yourself exactly make something that sounds kind of like it. We're not Nabisco work Tabasco. No we're not Coke or croak or you know that kind of stuff now. John Boyd boomer. Then you re an hour. And our producer Randy. So I go out there. The senate leaders reaching a budget deal yesterday were all wait to see what happens with the government shut down before midnight the US has launched just samarra airstrikes on a Syrian government back to troops. A frivolity should ensue there. Some of the top White House aides have resigned following a domestic abuse claims from ex wives and this would be our rob Porter in this particular us instance. Are resigned as staff secretary which is a pretty a big job actually. Our media reports about domestic abuse claims from a is two ex wives. Including publication of photos that showed one of the women with a black guy that's never good deal. He resigned. He blasted the allegations as outrageous as simply false and he said of the photos quote the reality behind them. Is nowhere close to what it is being described as. His former wives described to a media outlets experiencing up physical verbal and emotional abuse from him. His first wife said that he had choked and punched her. And his second wife filed a protective order against him and she described him as wants dragging her naked and wet from the shower to yell at her. So I'm. Anyway the the White House chief of staff has taken some heat today John Kelly because he apparently tried to control the flow of information do it not only to trumpet. But apparently had known about this for sometimes on the kind of ran cover for the student. And the White House at first Tenet defended Porter. With Kelly calling him a court man of true integrity in order. But he lost that support once the photos came out and Kelly reportedly was urging him to stay anyway at least until they. Could tie up some of our lives since he wrote killer released to stabilize last night and I was shocked by the allegations released today against rob Porter. There is no place or domestic violence in our society can't take any other stand on that right now you know you can't take any a stand on that anyway but. I'm particularly. In light of all the news that's come down in the last three to six to seven months you just can't do them. Well we talked. About. A undercover. Hi. To show on not. Any we believe in the air yesterday. They send seven adults who look really young who are barely out of school themselves and undercover to a high school. Duke got a discover the pressures on kids in the impact of cell phones and all that stuff. So I wanna share that with you when I come back but I also wanna talk to you about a company called yell under which we've talked about when Jack White said he wanted cell phones no longer in his category news sponsors. And no Chappelle uses this and his comedy shows. You put your phone and a baguette and then it latches. And you can't get your phone out of the bag when you go back out to lobby and have it on latched. And the guy who invented Yonder is a pro uninteresting story but the things that they're finding once you take people's phones access to people's phones away from them. People actually start talking to each other and it's having effects that they. And hadn't even anticipated so wanna talk about all of that we're gonna do it next. A couple of days ago I became aware of a television channel show called under cover higher. When you're about 456. Years at a high school. Did you ever I think to yourself wow if I knew then what I know now blow it like to be a senior in high school again. The concept of this television show is they send these. Young adults. Who still. Look like they could be in high school. Federal court she could still be in high school. Yet it is. No let one of the undercover students at Highland Park High School this was in note two peca I believe. So did envelop the deal that undercover high is they get these adults and they go undercover as high school students. This is a show on any any it airs on Tuesday night's. And I'll I'll get to the particulars of what. They are found but just to be it is kind of there's there's two articles that I have uncovered about undercover. Life. They have found that depression was surprisingly common at the high school we are talking about this yesterday. I'm. I obviously have been out of high school for some time. I couldn't relate to what the pressures are today. I know what they were when I was at school it was popularity in was peer pressure and it was you know whether. He had a cool group yet and I'm cool group enough. And it was based on. I don't know law wasn't pissed if it was based on your looks it was based on the clothes you wore it was based on me. Whether or not you could go win a fight or not you're you're dive. Allow me it was based on know whether or not you were good looking and out of your girl are you know it all the stuff and and when was it just it was at a good time not doubt for me. I hated it. When a good athlete Eleanor good fighter. As funny. But funny I didn't really work role well when somebody's you know slam and Europe's oil locker. So. I mean ninety now and then we went through the period of time after I got out of high school were. You're the grunge era. Where they were all singing about teenage angst. And but I would no more understand especially with today's net technology cell phones and all of that I mean that's changed everything. About what the pressures are today they say teens often feel pressure to maintain their images not only on line around the clock and that leads to stress and feelings of inadequacy. And your editor with all due respect to any teenagers in May be listening right now your catcher all time stupidest. When you are preoccupied. With a whole lot of things that don't really in the long run matter the people that don't like UN school today. We'll know more BL party your life in five years and fly to the moon you don't care you won't even remember what had except when you go back to the reunion. In twenty years which you don't thinking about right now. And find out what they've grown fat and ugly and no. And in the girl that wasn't there all that attractive shows up the twenty year reunion and she's become attractive in the chick that was. The head cheerleader comes back and and tension she looks like old ships. Posterior. So Bob. So that was the one article I'll get back to that than I read another one nuggets from another episode although it was the same. People in the same month Kansas high school. And they really zeroed in on Smartphones and they found that female students frequently faced pressure to send sexually explicit images of themselves. And apparently this is more the rule than the exception Minnesota group of adults. Part of the reason the Smartphones and social media contribute to teen depression. Is. I I mean did. That and they're set of those pictures. So. I get back to that in just a second. Tie that into a story that we did not too long ago about Jack White and it seems like there was another musical artist with in the last week or ten days. I'm. Guns 'N Roses. Is a group that doesn't allow phones and their concerts anymore Dave Chappelle comedian. Doesn't allow phones. At their concerts anymore. In general artists are not very complimentary of phones out crowd. If you just paid 200 bucks for a ticket in your sitting behind somebody that stride to film the entire thing on their phone under obstructing your view. Detonation less than happy. So when Jack White announce that he was not going to allow people to have cell phones and his concerts anymore you all got really. Why are you gonna do that Jack. And it comes with this. Couch that someone. Someone is a guy by the name of Graham do bony. Who went 24 team. Came up with a mobile phone couch. So when you go to one of the shows. You don't give up your phone. That you are forced to put your phone in one of these pouches. And then that pouch closes with a proprietary lock. And the device for unlocking them. You don't noted. You have to go back out in the lobby your back out into the entry area to unlock the phones so you have your phone. But it's in this couch so you don't have access to your phone. So that makes the artists happy. And the guy who invented this thing said. You know initially. People are hot. There are not happy. He figured out this. It took him a few years to do this he's at 31 year old guy. And he finds it found this company called Yonder YOND. Our. And there was series of studies and experimentation and is that the other they come up with a small gray pouch. This swallows your phone. And walks the bag up. Keeps you away from your phone. Your fingers and eyes. You're addiction. And accessible. And any starts offering these things around hundreds of thousands of neoprene pouches and are now being used in North America Europe and Australia when he first went to shop this. From the investors kind of laughed at him. And then he got somebody to bite on it. And then that worked out really well and and that's word started to spread and and you had concert venues starting in and you had this that and now you've got skulls. Throughout the country USA especially. These pouches can be rented for a single event or on an extended lease and they're now used in more than 600 US schools. And they entity is is yes you've taken the phones away from these kids. But it is what has. Transpired. Because of that. We talk about millennial in this building that walk past you and all and you say hey how you doing and they seem to be stuck for an answer. I think they are in some cases. Because they're not used communicating with people they're commuting you'd been used to communicating at people. Talk talk about this young underside company in the second another more on this undercover and if you're a parent or if you got their grandkids or if you got you know somebody is apparent. Yet the other stick around for a few because I got the slightest plenty of interesting if you take those phones away for long yes there's resistance but then. There's a light of day that occurs. Pretty acoustic. So continue into the next half hour of I just think it's fascinating this guy who invented this have pouches that they put the phones in a weather going into a concert or sporting event or schools. People are going into schools and courtrooms and concerts at medical facilities and weddings and other events and they're being asked to slip their phones in the these couches when they are. And and you can't to have your your phone is inaccessible to you and tell you come back out. Mom and and and because it's got a proprietary lock on it end of the day in and you have to go back out to the origination point two. To get among locked. So from that standpoint the artists and so on and so forth are getting what they want and that is a little bit more on divided detention with their audience. Once lock the phone stay with their owners until they are ready dual leave the premises and in the devices are released from their little tiny prisons. And and unlocking base. And as we pointed out the pouches can be rented or extended leases they do this now and about 600 schools will the schools. It's been really interesting. At first they said people seemed agitated and unsure of what to do with their hands. And then they had just. In an eight in line at a concession stand you'll overhear people talking about the artist that's playing as opposed to being. Face down and their phones. At San Lorenzo high school in California. Which the school year began with requiring students to put their bags and they had their their phones and this in other words to Yonder they use Yonder has a verb that's the name of Eric. The company that produces these bags. So they required the students to yell under their phones from the beginning of first person until the end of the last. And the difference has been stark says this article grades have gone up discipline problems have plummeted. Referrals for defiance and disrespect are down 82%. Adding that before Yonder most of them stemmed from arguments between students and teachers over foreign news in class. Another affect the campus. Is really loud and now. Because students are interacting. Because students are talking to each other because students are reading out loud because people are kicking a ball or socializing. Because they're not standing in a circle. Texting each other. This is kind of the side ramifications are yes they wanted to get as did the the phones out of the classroom purse say. So that they had a chance to teach but they're notice and all sorts of side benefits. This guy who invented this is a College Soccer player and a jazz pianist and and nav interest in the philosophy and he worked briefly enough finance and Atlanta I think he graduated from duke. I and that led into investigate the nature of anxiety and many a steady dose. Some philosophers. And and that taught him that stress about technology is not a new thing. He is there and did they do gaudy companies. That did that invented this Smartphone. He compares the advent advent of the Smartphone to the development of the phonetic alphabet. For the newspaper in its a moment to listen to us. He's I don't think people realize how radically different it is to be human being with a phone in your pocket if it becomes something it's going to hollow out the meeting of your life. That's something we're going to have to address all we're saying is step the newest phone free zone. And see what that's like for a while. More than three quarters of adults in the United States possesses Smartphone at this point and it's become a path of least resistance. Walking away phones has been the rule at all Dave Chappelle's shows for years and people are increasingly asking Yonder at parties have for upper yacht or Yonder at parties and other informal event. Because the absence of phones. Performers know this. No they're not gonna be bombarded with requests for photos and they're not going to have a lot of cell phones in their face when they're trying to do improper. And in the end you go to the guy who invented all of us. Wants people to ask themselves what is the point of all these instantaneous. Taxes shares and likes. Even a Smartphone saturation has increased. The cultural tide has been shifting with studies linking happiness to less screen time. And former tech executives speaking out about technologies addictive qualities people's response to Yonder has become really nothing but positive. Well this undercover high. Where these people go into these high schools acting as students. To see how technology. Is affecting students. We'll talk about that next. The moment I heard about this guy who invented this. Have bagged called a young under. Jaguar uses that is concerts. I just read only should Keyes has been using it her concerts. More than 600 schools if you are putting your bag you put your phone in this couch. And then it is closed with a proprietary lock. And then you have to go back to the point of origination. Out of the lobby your rub back to the front of the school or whatever. Two I'm locking device to pitch thrown back out you never give up access to your phone you never give up possession of your phone. You just tell you put it in us in his bag. How much. And take the device with you but you can't use the device until you leave at least four of you know there are into the lobby you're dedicated area aura. How were they tapped the pouch against a Yonder unlocking pointed and none. And then schools schools are used in this and others Bob destroy me and said my grandson goes to count roll high school in Charlotte charter. And administration roundups Smartphones at the start of the day and not pick him up at the end of the dot. Com. Written about this Yonder company in this guy. Graham to go O'Neal who I invented all of this beckoned a 2004. And what motivated him to would do it. He had kind of an epiphany at a music festival in a 2012 or he just saw a guy that to us so drunk he couldn't even remember his name and everybody you know was sort of filled and him and put it up on YouTube and and I he said that kind of thing happens a thousand times a day of bothered him. He saw people at festivals so. And and and so on so we're sort of started figure out. And then we just kind of told you that. Did the side. Benefits. I'm taking people's phones away from them has turned out to be. A communication. That yes people bristle. And get agitated. And don't quite know what to do with their hands when you first take their phone away from home. But always said did I noticed immediately that in concession stand you heard people talking. Somebody else said that did the school campus that they're on it's really loud now students are interacting and they're talking to each other in their rend their socializing and they're kicking a ball around their reading and there. They're not standing in a circle texting each other. The in their you know high school in California. Grades have gone up discipline problems have plummeted referrals for defiant and disrespect her down 82%. Before Yonder before this bag that their own kids were are forced to put their bags and for that their phones and for the day. Most of those problems most of the defiance and disrespect stemmed from arguments between students and teachers over phones in class. So that's about the device that we've talked about it we talked about when when Jack White said he was no longer gonna allow phones India's. Concerts. Now let me say go over to this television show which I haven't seen yet but I will by the time next Tuesday is over all of cedar government and tape it. Kind of an interesting concept adults go. Undercover. As a high school students on this eighty show called undercover high they show a picture here overgrown and Nikola. Who are supposed to get away from being known a senior in high school. Judge she graduated 23 team so it's not like. You know she's 43 years old and so they send these seven adults. Or recently graduated. People into these schools. And they have found it and and and and Nikola was especially as big as you said it's so much worse now than it was four years ago when I was in school. Meaning phones and peer pressure and now I I know peer pressure and I know if you were to Nath leader. You're popular you are good looking or your folks would let you Wear the popular clothes and and hair. My folks and I fought over hair I can't even begin to tell you. My dad always wanted to little executives and I didn't want to be able executive good Beatles came along when I was. Twelve years old. Wanted to hair. And no we thought about error we fought about clothes we fought about everything I know with all due respect to my dad who bio load deeply. When a lot of wasted time all that was. Let kids be kids to a degree you know I mean if they want a tattoo a four letter word across the forehead then newbies should put a foot down and say no. But if they wanna. Or grow their hair along there like you know I mean it to some extent let them let him go a little farther away. Anyway these these these undercover kids are going to this high school in Topeka Kansas. Found that depression was surprisingly common at the high school level of the social media as Smartphones play a huge role in that. In the teens often feel pressure to maintain their images online around the clock which leads to stress and feelings of inadequacy. Now I bring this up because I don't know what it's like to be a kid's school these days and if you're a parent you probably don't know either we we know what appear we know what the pressures were when we were in school we know. You know the feeling you know the wanting to be popular or not being popular wanted to be part of a click or not feeling part of a click or not feel like yours tutors. On next you know. Well one of those lingering things that you don't buy my folks did on occasion wanted to say you know. Why why can't you be more like Kurt Doughty. Friend of mine. Why that's terrible. I mean to some extent there have been because that's exactly the angst I was going through was 'cause I was and his coolest as dowdy once. I already knew that. Bob Jacobs my other good friend. Straight a student good happily. I do a fight Wendy on the playground with one of the toughest guys at school beat the crap out of him. One of the toughest guys school turn out to be not as tough as everybody thought he wants. But I won Bob. I wouldn't gallery Alice part of my problem. I was running with decent guys for awhile but I wasn't. And didn't see myself at that level. All I remember all the pain that that caused. I said at the hall of fame induction deal. If you are one of the last people picked when they were taken sides. Keep team blog and maybe you'll get your night. I got that rely are reflected our relayed on them. So in the past five years depression and suicide rates of American teens has shot up just 2016 study showed that the number of teens who experienced a major depressive episode. Saw 37%. Increase between 2005 and 2014. I know it's over you all are thinking right now you think snowflakes you think and parents should think it needs a coddled generation. Could be right. The data suggest that the tandem of Smartphones and social media or shoulders a lot of the blame for the rise of teen depression. Business insiders spoke to three adults who spent the semester undercover is high school students. And they Eric council supported the idea that Smartphones and social media have made being a teenager harder than ever. This any documentary series called undercover high seven people between the ages of 2126. Navigate life at Highland Park High School and to Pique your campus they took classes they did homework they joined clubs. They interacted with students from all walks of life over the course of the spring said Torre seventy and semester. All an effort to discover what being a teenager is like today. Cell phones are everywhere ubiquitous at target at Highland Park. And teachers often have trouble restraining their students from using them during class. Back today Yonder bag. Increased prevalence of social media has put pressure on students to maintain their image around the clock. It's not quote it's not just your image at school that you have to uphold. Like what kind of shoes you're wearing or what brand you're wearing or what kind of backpack do you have is nickel let this girl speaking. One of the undercover kids. Now you have to uphold the social this image of social media. How many likes do you have now how many hearts do you have how many Rudy you have following how many followers. And it's just double the impact of what it was before. No I read that paragraph and I remembered an advertiser that was taken about doing live commercials with us about six years ago. And he went on my FaceBook account. And saw that I only had 12100 followers or something like that. And we lost the account. Because I didn't have as many followers says I don't know John boy and Billy your ball and sharing. Our lives sponsors affective than anybody in town. So. On you. But I bet I had never really even thought of that. So now I've got the Max that you can have without turning into a fan page and I understood I don't wanna turn him into a fan page it just. Seems. Just keep that idea. So I got 5000 nauert. You'd like two or three drop out of Renault Mihm so I've got 4997. The down part of as they got about 200 people on the waiting list what they get it on the FaceBook page Twitter I don't have a file or they got on Twitter I don't tweet march. Instead Graham. I'm not active on it rolls. Another participant in this under cover high is a 23 year old pastor by the name of David. African men are skewed began you'll African American guy. Troubled by the way students equate the popularity of their social media posts. With their own self esteem will get to that in just a second. Undercover guy Daniel who went into all of this to peak high school said he was told by the way students equate popularity of their social media pose with their self esteem and he goes into a greater detail there. I guess and another episode of this say this group of adults it went undercover into this high school called undercover highlights on ENE it's on a Tuesday night's. I haven't seen it yet but that'll change on Tuesday because I'm gonna record it. They found that female students frequently faced pressure to send sexually explicit images of themselves.

No I don't I'm an apple would bet yeah its mountain iron and it's about 44000 people so it's pretty pretty small and now a couple hours although they've got a fast rail they built for a for the Olympics but it's about two hours from muscle. There's a pretty good military we we talked about not many Americans there but there's a pretty good American. A military build up or there is there. I think there's like 45000. Number in half so you'll probably see some although. And with though with the conditions the way they are right now they'll probably be on duty were you over there what was last time you were over there. I'm 91 OK so you are you have have been their for the latest from polity in front I I wouldn't recognize that are ordered and are now. I'll what did you what did you like about South Korea. The moment what the best thing about it was the way they did the ticket you little local bank and bought tickets if you want to go to the Olympics. So you went to the last you're into the last Summer Olympics there where there. Right yeah okay. So the tickets were like ten bucks fifteen bucks so we wouldn't even somebody with my salary can go. Even though it did in the army jacket portico. So yeah you just went back because the ticket could popular. The Aussie or over there for the Olympics it's very cool. Route what do what do you remember about the people 'cause I everything I've heard from the athletes right now say it and for reporters to editors say the South Korean people are just unknown unbelievably nice. They've been really our problem you just yeah you're you're denial it ever that are. Everybody's great dam. Tom guesses at what they're doing what your member of the third. I'll look through whose solution com boom they'll be home and we are fact I had to go on the boomers are advised to check up on target and had a Korean barbecue wall that. And what did you think of it was excellent yeah everybody everybody and TJ might have producer went to bunch and has been talking about it ever since he says is pretty good stuff. Ellen Bravo very little to express spoke about a guy who don't don't wanna go video relay. And then I was cool thing weightlifting Barbara and into the group both must also remember how long does see a basketball game sort of trading and tickets are mostly the Olympic gold. I'll. I'll call the yeah very cool. Oh well tonight's opportunity to be over there I had to have the Olympics going out of same time that that kind of almost makes you happy to have served at that particular time. Yes sir that or how long did you serve. I pretty much happier now army. The army now they will listen thanks to Colin thanks for your service or pre judgment. Welcome to our I thought all right welcome Steve to got a little experience with the South Korea the networks we talked a little bit earlier about. And a NBC has the rights to of the TV through 2032. A 176. Hours of programming on NBC 369. Hours of programming on the NBC sports network 46 hours of programming on CNBC. Forty hours on the USA network. And then the that's about 18100. Plus hours of programming on the Olympics. And this is the one Olympics were. You can see every event live in some way shape form or another. By the way in the midst of all of that programming we just talked about 3000 journalists are expected to cover be on time games. 900 million new projected ad revenue from the games. And that translates to 7002. Hundred. Commercials. Ads that will later during the 2018 Winter Olympics coverage. 31%. More than twenty bit inventory fortunate. So a little over 7000. Commercials. They think they are one us. 42 years is the length of lay out McDonald's a sponsorship at the US Olympic Committee which will end after the 2018 games 42 years McDonald's has been nail sponsor of the Olympics. Coca Cola's bid in for ninety years they're contract has been extended to 20/20. 222. Medals will be awarded in the 2018 no Winter Olympics. And I've got day someplace or it it's the heaviest metal. But they've ever put out. And I had a somewhere and I can't find it but it's like one point 29 pounds or something like peppery struck gold medal. Record setting weight of a gold medal the 2008 is 586. Grams. So I don't know what beverage of your balance. What on the radio guys it's perfect for profession for a guy with a C average in norms and. I'm elated Kemba Walker and not to get traded today at the NBA tread dubbed I'd trade deadline but he was named to his second consecutive all star game. By the commissioner Adam silver today as a reserve for the eastern conference on the territory eighteen NBA all star game marks the second year that he's been selected he replaces the injured Chris stops poor's Angus of a New York. On a team LeBron. Team LeBron. The Cleveland team LeBron. Are traded away half well over a third of their players today. They were really active. Pretty eventful trade deadline for the Cleveland Cavaliers today the they treat you way gush after roster within the span of an hour Isiah Thomas. Who they'd gotten out from Boston. For carrier ring. They traded him and Channing Frye to the Los Angeles record lakers they traded dead Jae Crowder who they also I think got from Boston good defender. And Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz. They traded he Mon chauffeur. And. To the Seattle to the Sacramento Kings and know they sent Dwyane Wade back to Miami. They also all floated to draft picks and in return they get Rodney hood from the jazz. George Hill from the kings. And Larry Nance junior and Jordan Clarkson from the lakers. The big name leaving the cavaliers as Thomas who god and with the trade with the Celtics earlier this year for carrier ring. I his agent said it's a bronze ball and it has clearly wasn't working this is a good opportunity for Isaiah it probably is our history and so Mel's earlier this said Los Angeles is a good place for him. I don't know basketball that well that'll take their word Ford Los Angeles faired better in the trades in Cleveland which didn't do much to increases championship hopes according to CBS sports but. On the other hand the lakers just cleared a whole bunch a cap space. For rail likely attempted to us signing oh I don't know maybe James himself in the offseason. So we'll see how all of that goes but Cleveland I don't know does that mean they've given up this year. Or does that mean that these guys are more conducive to a player and and let me know LeBron do his thing doesn't take much she's. In case you ever heard he's pretty good. So there you go there. 5000 members of the South Korean military will be on guard for the Byung Chang games we were given you some statistics that the we have dugout because the games start tonight at 8 o'clock on NBC. With curling. And figure skating team competition. And freestyle skiing. And then at 9 o'clock men's Alpine skiing.

You wonder you know what they considered it can't just be the metal. And and and now iPad now you know that apparently this is. Barely had better than tender. Although probably not for old guys senator. But can you all just move on know from all of that. Quincy Jones have some interesting things to say. And hopefully it'll. Reveal words that I can't say here but they interviewed Quincy Jones and he described The Beatles and when they came over as the worst musicians in the world. Recalled meeting the band the first time in during an interview he's promoting a new Netflix documentary and no TV special little be shown in the United States it was with New York magazine.
