That's gaining some. Some traction is is maybe as many as possible as long as possible. I i came across that by the writings of of mock. O'sullivan new. I think is a in in stockholm as they sort of overarching approach. So so talk to us about what that actually looks like in practice. What were the what were the things that perhaps made your work at that club. Difference to the mall so the traditional approaches of of of academy. My it means that When the kids us six seven years old one as many of them to join and as we kind of the quite early on faulty playoffs. Of course the quantity was quite different from to slow as football is a quite Role in in the in the social aspect that we have to know to To keep them apart and to keep them together. Those we have to think about that. When you plan sessions two one s many kits as possible to join the club and when they joined up want them to stay as long as possible and the third thing is also important. We want one though so them who wants to be as a possible. That's also one of is as best as possible. You would come forget that. So that means that we have to think about The different skills and how to help to approach a big group and and what to do on the daily basis on printings pop star is one of the main differences that quite often in all kinds of football clubs never mind just academies there is this this shifts towards right. What's the talk group. Let's put them in. A group was the next greatest. Put them in a b. group and so on and so on hops. that seems that seems coherently. Sensible to to do in terms of putting the more highly skilled plays together but as we all know football. It's more of a light development sport so perhaps we're they're missing opportunities to develop those that might flourish a little bit later on so taught us a little bit about age and stage. I know that you did than later. Separate them to some extent into the more skilled players on the lesser scope by lesser ability by his. When when did that happen whenever six. Seven and eight. We didn't say them at all began when they were late. Eight nine and just in the plane pokes after training always of us from the first day war always played of fifty percent of all sessions. Were they playing to three against three for and stay became eight of mine the Among them were quite Not the same. So in some sessions we put the best together and the next second best and so but that was in in Just in in the playing of of sessions and as they grew old we extended that So maybe to a trace the sessions Unroll we we kept the best with the best and like the fourth training we mix them all together. Because that was maybe the most important playing session. Because that was the team building Session so the best Maybe had The other fight on his team and they had to behave to show them how to to make an and the second best in like thirty one to forty to play against The best How it should a dumb and when they played the next Essentially with their own quality they improved so we notice that equality on on the best. It didn't wasn't the cost of of this. The the the twin wonderful and get a good progression. They best one. I'm better better That has happened as the best one didn't lose an inequality so That's why we just can. We want to continue that because we knew if we had set for them. Totally from like h Twelve or thirteen. then it would be a big New thing in the social life and we also won't we didn't want to separate the fence on evenings weekends sa- clearly the there's a knowledge building To that full for both ends of the spectrum of the age groups that you were walking with you've described brilliantly in terms of the lesser ability players so to speak and learning off their higher ability. pays the higher. But it's he pays being. Tom almost like a teaching role in those. Those moments Did you find that the the players were also highly motivated for for those turning sessions this war friends and a as we did the on them like even so full training it didn't Said it's i since in my fellow all our a enjoy doing that. They wanted to to play against infant with any have also devaluation. If you're doing on the same eight nine ten posts amber eighty nine or ten dwarf so we had at lunches for us was. We didn't get work because it will many new faces in one week. They trained with twenty five to maybe divide to forty. That's not the problem so of course we have to. We didn't say that equal qualities we set from that one that they are not the same quality. Do you have the maybe come back to that from high. Six to ten eleven is formation. Hase you have to do a much different movements goes. That's a very good thing especially now when the youth Spending on the phone or i parts. They sitting much more than earlier and especially now in nineteen many kids. That have been much. Sony's in both to coordinate session have lots of variation in the movements so we have the the main thing from five to ten eleven is to loan them. Many different movements and from ten eleven is like the nation on technical face of fourteen depend on where they are growth as roader in. Of course we check the best and this together more and more so just to clarify for those listening as well. That when you're when you're saying these numbers that's that's the kind of compartmentalization of these players. So you said you had forty in in an age group. Thatt's he wants a forty might be sort of the bottom group for use of a one of a better term once a time to eleven being the this on quite talk group Rather than the the position themselves. So but i mean it sounds like that was a lot of behind the way in which you operated within this. This club was related to this context of small town role friends. We want to include as many of these plays as long as possible. You mentioned already. About fifty percent of training sessions being being games faced. What what the rest look like. And what always had the warmer with a bowl in the first minutes so like four players That's all nine years old. It can be a bit noisy And we just we saw if we're going to stop the five o'clock in the evening was all the time and the first five minutes was free. We just out from And they played wrong on their own. And where the whistle and off the probably minutes. We bring them together. I'm not and we have often. Will we have the Like different like Not not athletic. But the more sprains and with without the vote to strengthen the decor and the coordination Like full of high of ten minutes and then has ten minutes full different stations. You have one station. What kicking doable. Maybe wonderful for tossing the ball One thing it different station and the last Lawsuits deployment was always always playing but in first women and have a different Like i think's spring the stockton meaning on on the role on something. I see them your all kinds of We get what's in in in When growing up they have to start. Change directions and stuff in you directions. The we these kinds from suppose here we would know that as as as fundamental movements or physical literacy pops the times that we would probably use for that so i can. I can imagine what that looks like. I guess what i wanted to get into is that was there any theory. The underpin this nisei was there a moment way. These approaches changed started to be implemented. Or has this just emerged over time. And if so how i it was not where one of the we we took a club of. Course have the implants and we follow the the way it didn't Individual and coaches were agreeing on doing this so We didn't do didn't do something that we're not allowed to talk. So the documents were all included in up spam so so many cups of doing this from five to twelve because inouye is just Football and from day us seventy s matches. But they don't set up a table you you'll miss number one so they play a lacking domus serious Off the twelve when they go to be thirteen and the rules are changing now. The results of becoming more important and had to set them to different teams to levin. And that's why our coach It was a bit used to be because even then we kept them together at the age of thirteen and fourteen even then we we had to grow together on all sessions and we spoke previously about competition once once they got to this adolescence stage and as you said in no way the the results so then matter so to speak but you maintained parts of this approach by didn't go chasing wins right the we discussed previously about know one of five connected with eleven to fifteen in terms of the plays and then those playing together not necessarily just putting all the best place together and also the one when they gained elegant became nine or ten or eleven and twelve. We saw that. This was the best one was in fact quite good. So if we had the tech the eleven best People's in when they grew thirty they a five five and seven each team. And now it's pretty five seven online but when these Was five gene seventeen and when a with so gene eleven team like adults if we took the eleven and played against other teams in on region. We have.

William Barr Sees ‘No Reason’ for Special Counsels for Hunter Biden, Election
"With President Donald Trump. Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said today he saw no reason. To appoint a special counsel to look into the president's claims of election front or attacks and the tax investigation into the son of President elect Joe Biden things that Trump has really been looking forward to try to prove by the way, because let's face it. The sad reality of this. I don't care what you think about whether or not There was any election fraud or anything when it came to the coverage of the election. The media. Was if you don't believe that the mainstream media is now in Kohut when it comes to what they will and will not report You're kidding yourself. You're a fool. That's all there is to it. They bent over backwards not to report anything that hunter Biden did. I mean, there was a lad, Can you imagine? ALF. I will eventually finish a sentence. Yes. Can you imagine? If Donald Trump Jr or Ivanka Trump or any of the trump Children, even Tiffany If any of them had left the laptop. At a repair shop forgot about it. And then the information that was on one about that was on it about Hunter. Biden came out about one of the trump kids, can you there would have been wall to wall coverage. They would have. They would have preempted the mast singer just to talk about the trump Children like that, But because it was hunter Biden. Not only did they not talk about it, they full on hit it. I mean, when you're not when it's when you've got something like that, right in your face when you've got a practically a full on admission that he is using his father's influence in order to financially benefit himself when there's pictures of him using drugs on a laptop. And you don't do anything about it when there's absolutely no reporting about that. Anywhere but fringe news organizations. I mean, come on. I don't even care what you think about it because you know that if it was one of the trump Children, and that was out there, there would have been like I said, Wall to wall coverage. There would have been exposes. They would have taken off regular programming and gone news wall. The wall there would have been. I mean, you would have been able to avoid it. As it stands unless you had a particular political bent. You would have had to go out of your way to find the actual information about Hunter Biden, So it's It's really kind of disgusting now in its final press conference Mar also broke with Trump in reinforcing that federal officials believe Russia was behind the cyber espionage operation targeting the U. S government government. Trump has suggested without evidence that China could be responsible Bar said the investigation and 100 Biden's financial dealings with being handled responsibly and professionally. He said. I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave. The reason that Trump wants a special counsel is because if there's a special counsel in investigating it It would make it more difficult for Biden to shut it down the way the investigation is right now, if when a Democratic age comes in, they can. They can shut it down and given the fact that pretty easily by the way, given the fact that what I was just saying that the mainstream media would wouldn't even touch the story with a 10 FT pole. If they shut the investigation down. If Biden the points is a ghee and gets in there, and the first thing they do is shut the investigation down. Odds are pretty good. You won't hear about it.

"Got to have something that brings the realism to it and I'm sure you know your your crew did this amazing job and and People are talking about. Yeah. Tell, you So this was last week. Are What to to the academy there for the art directors, but then later in the week flu up to Seattle because Carl Gottlieb. A book called Jaws Log. Many many years ago right after we did the movie. Anyway he had contacted me a few months ago. That there's play writers. And musician play writers that are making a musical called Bruce. Bruce was a name we gave the shark. So they're going to. They're reading it up in Seattle theater up there incredible theater, so I went up there. They had about two dozen people playing all the various parts and. Obviously was me Spielberg and the various. VERNA feels the under the two actors, and so it's really quite interesting doing a musical about the making of Jaws, the hardships of it and you know. Will it succeed no well? Yes, it will and. It was really. Quite as racial to see it I had some comments My character has a number of Solos and we singing about working with the the allergist and how design the Shark Imbaba Maddie who? And so the they're gonNA. Open it probably in December so they're going away. They just want us to do this reading. And then they're gonNA come back in a few months, and put the cast together, and then I work with the designer. Who's going to do the scenery you know because that's a different kind of designed to do stage work. It's a lot of it. Is projection today? But. They got a great designer. The same guy that did the Cabbie Ward so I'm looking forward to see what happens in the next few months. You had a pretty successful relationship with Mr Spielberg because not only. Did you do the Shark for yours? You design spaceship and close encounters third kind. What happened I met Stephen on television series called night. Gallery and then we did a few of his early television, and then as first feature was sugarland express with Goldie Hawn and then jaws. And then close counts of third kind. wasn't just the spaceship. The it was this big Reno. like you said it all these years. He's worked this the biggest ever ever worked on and it was Too Big for sound stage. We shot it in Mobile Alabama and it was like. A football field, wide and a football field, and a half long so as three hundred feet by four hundred and fifty feet, and it was all covered black. It had to be inside because of the lighting we had like forty eight arcs of top, and I did have a spaceship that came down, opened it at like four thousand photos on mirrored. mylar. Ramp and then the the aliens came out, so yeah, that was a big project. It took months to build the set. And months to shoot. And I you know I didn't. I was dominant for the Cabbie? Ward I lost his star wars but I won. The British got me word against the same people who are British. It was pretty well. Wish a movie. It must really take some sort of imagination between you and your team. Come up with things that. Have to look so impressive visually you know even like between the shark spaceship for close encounters. With the Shark I had a very small team so it was, it was difficult. Closer counters A great illustrator George Jansen, who passed away, so I got some really good storyboards we painted so is your Vilmos Zygmunt could look at the painted storyboards. You really get an impression how we want. Visualize this and worked Stephen Obviously, and so it was. It was a question of having a really good team. doing a Lotta models made models of everything illustrations of everything before we built it. And then. You know it, Is, just one of these projects take so long you know and Doug Trumbull came and did visual effects. He was well known. And, so the team I think did a credible job. Here's Lucas who it's star wars. He Kmart said, and he was blown away. He said we never did anything like this and Star Wars. We just had the same little set. We just kept repeating it. So it was. Quite a different approach. I. Title later leader at the end of the interview, but I want also direct some of our listeners to a website called Joe. Alves Movie Art and there are some of the sketches that you did for some of the movies that you worked on. Yeah there's a story board There's Yeah! I get year. My story boards from Jaws, and I make copies and I sell those story boards in the illustration so also there was another movie i. have a similar situations on their called. Escape from New York That was John Carpenter film was Cut Russell. Yes. and. John. Carpenter and it was interesting kind of movie sort of dark pood- kind of thing, but it was fun. It was a lot of fun making that one. Yeah, and again. That's probably where that great imagination comes into play. Because I guess you're creating like post apocalyptic New York. Exactly We went to New York John and I we were top of the Trade Center when there is still a bear, and we looked out of New York and said. This is too much too big and it was a small budget movie we we needed to bridge that nobody was using and we found one in. Saint Louis. And so I built a big wall and that was. The Wall. Is Sort of locked in? New York and then we found other A. Dancer Urban Renewal so we could just trash second of the city pair every night and we.

You observe a pattern or opportunities to to what the Patton. With it and try and extended and extend pattern a as far as you can. I want to say say message to teach is. I want to encourage teachers to reflect on whether just the fact that we build up mathematics from simple to complex in order to prove it in knowledge, mega certain that does that really mean that's the best way to teach it and. Just one idea, and if there's one idea I might want you to play with as a teacher is, it seems really clear that As learn as one thing that everybody has a sense of really deep bodied sense of is how I can do and undo things. Doing and undoing seems to be that two year olds. Know about. Just one very. If. There was a one sentence thing I might say. The teachers is whatever you're teaching process. Teach the inverse processes. Whenever you teach? Teach Division as well because that will help. Children make sense of these two things together. Because that kind, the same thing and children know about doing doing so. Whenever you teach a process teaches inverse of the same at the same time. You wouldn't do that if you're thinking to building mass improving it, but but it seems to me that makes much more sense about how you might order curriculum to make sense in terms of learning. An accident of advice and I J- anyone listening who's involved in in mathematics when another is to to really take on board the advice that you've given an so the concepts discussed because essentially it's. The! There is a need to revamp the the the way. Mathematics is tour and the way we think about mathematics in general, because I think we think about it as as this. Hard subject and it shouldn't be of of thought in the way is is most definitely an important subject, but I think the idea that is a hard subject puts a lot of people of. I couldn't agree more I couldn't agree more accident. Where can people find you online? So I, I'm on twitter. At? On on and I welcome emails particularly for teachers.

Maybe kick off by just telling us a little bit more about Mangrove I gave the intro that but tell us. What kind of things did you get involved in the the clients in the deals? He'd be doing recently mortgage from that. So. We Peeing Stage Venture Fund. A. Little bit specialists that we have always two hundred million funds, but we have very concentrated portfolio, so we do around. Thirty investments, meaning sixty seventy dozens purpose. And we always believed meaning. We get in very early and we on active cheerleader if Pronounce. And we have data handled so review, so we're going down with the doper -tunities. Investment checks the. Half a million up to five ISH Huffman up to five million, so this is seed funding on it as a stage code precede as well, do you do both of those you say early stage you could clarify the difference between those and you guys lie on that. Yeah, we don't really kissel much work. At the moment being put on the rounds. TAME Long thirty percent. Meaning as a product out there, people. We don't cast much rather is the and do that? It descend bit more. Odious. Companies has revenues and the stage where. You. Go Raisin. Yeah right right excellent, and what part of your portfolio is comprised by voice technology companies in particular. You guys focus exclusively on that a new interest for you, so it's getting your interest I think we actually stop it looking at the space, the ALF. Ago. Since then we've done one investment in staged company called. See Better in Paris. Essentially pump needed to reinvent entertainment by beating rebate access to high-end.

Nice there any particular characteristics that you look for then in voice tech companies. A wide range of different types of products that are being launched. People are trying different things. I've some patterns just from interviewing people on the PODCAST, so I'm sure you've noticed some some trends as well as the types of companies will the type of use cases that voices being applied to the tend to do better from attraction, point of view, or from evaluation, point of view while other typical kind of the cases, all the areas potentially industries that are most interesting to you right now. Footed that into that? It's space so initially why we got interested in it is because it's so consume ass, using voice, technology and data, so basically used, but engagement conversion rates were extremely. Good. Instead of this, tell me us. They're ready. Use this new in. An extra enjoying it and they communicate engages. More than if they have to use the keyboard to put in data, so that will finish. Starting point where we realized, is this voice? From that what we having at we have the platforms via the voicing visit lodge and the platforms notables assistance. Everybody's involved home the next size this. Specific Arab just for us. But we are more than at all. Kinds of flux is use voice to enhance US experience into his. Business that at the end of the day eighty percent of the directions be has. Can Be done by boys, so we take him to do that. It's vision. We share absolutely the keyboard. It feels so antiquated. The fact that lasted so long crying out for. Crying on the alternative and one that's love it more human as well.

"Right, but it's also sad because Al can't go to the show because he's down, yeah. Alf also gets done in this episode on something that we saw L. D. and Leon on to curb your enthusiasm. have an issue with this past season. Alf for falls for the old artificial fruit trick. Yeah I do think the wax fruit was was like a big trope in the late eighties. Yeah, everyone. Everyone had wax fruit and every Sitcom had Wexford Joe. Yes, now is wax fruit, the same as what Larry Leon had an issue with on curb enthusiasm. This season was the plastic I think it was also I'm pretty sure well. They all broke their teeth on. Curb your enthusiasm Can you break your tooth on wax? FRUIT WELL DOES ALF have teeth to break even kiss teeth. I think he is yeah. We're going. To the dentist pretend he wasn't alien What would they do? That's an episode. There we go. That's an episode on the reboot on the reboot. Yeah, like what kind of twenty thousand nine hundred twenty can out can get corona virus. I don't know. How do we test him? All right I'm going there. Okay, I don't know. Can Healthcare the coronavirus? I bet he could yeah, maybe they on male Mac. Yeah. Maybe he did that, so I think there's a lot of issues that ALF can Try to untangle perhaps okay so We get this storyline of the homeless person. shoehorned here. It was weird. I felt like they were trying to say also knew this person because he gave him. He gave him a Pie. He gave him a bunch of clothes, but then there seems like when Alf is going to run into the homeless man. Then there's like no previous interaction. So, what we think is that Alf was leaving stuff out maybe to catch cat, but I think everything was leaving out was to catch the cat. The unit leading sweaters out the catch. The cat I'm not sure it's the I'm not sure it's not so. I might have spotted this guy roaming around and. Left things for him. He's got a good heart health. Yeah, but he right, but he was additionally leaving out like a lot of milk traps to catch a cat, so we could get a cat and Helen Seinfeld is horrified the when she reports back like hey, did you hear this a bomb in the neighborhood? and. They're like well. You know, maybe it's a guy who's down on his luck like he's a bomb. He's a bomb. Maybe should watch Seinfeld episode where her son Jerry Springer. You know keeps calling a homeless person of. Yeah. Mrs. What is what is her character name? Core Helen Seinfeld. Hell Elvas a distinct name. Og Nick. Yet Ach next the next door. Neighbor's dog Stockman Mannix. That's gotTa be another the name of somebody in production because every last name. Here's somebody so unusual name. So she is on the lookout, and she basically is saying like. Hey, call the police if you see this guy around here. He's wearing a floppy trenchcoat. Yeah, he just looks like a little bit dirty and the back of his code is very ripped. Yeah? He's got kind of I. Took more of a Hobo than a bomb. I don't know the difference I say hobos used to have sticks back in the town. I no. I feel like mad men. You ever get the season two of Madman Nope, only for except. Go Talk Hobo is a migrant worker or homeless. Vagrants some I. Don't know what the differences with a Hobo. Versus a bomb and I. Don't know if you know I I wouldn't call anybody, either not not no. This is thirty years ago. Language and I will say. He he's he's very educated, right? We don't know why he's in the situation he's in. Maybe it's like he so strongly believes in aliens and nobody else around him agrees, but he has like a space baccarat eight. You know heaver, so I looked up. Hold boy on Kapika. And the term originated the western, probably North Western United States in eighteen ninety, unlike a tramp who only works when forced to and a bum, who does not work at all? A Hobo is a traveling worker. Oh. Hobo moves around looking forward bummed. This gentleman does look around move around looking for work, does he? Because he does not seem to be looking for work at any point why I guess, he says he moves to Florida in the winter, but he also says that's sorted a scam single ladies like older women. I got some money holiday time. Yeah, okay, so there's an awkward scene where they talk about how a lot of Willie the DADS clothing is missing, and so that willy goes out to the garage and Lo and behold. Here is Alfred I? This guy is ed because he says he's Kinda, like horse looking. It looks like Mr Ed and he finds Ed the bomb in the garage, viscerally like setting up shop Willie is really cool about the whole thing. Yeah Willis Pretty Chill with him. I guess because they sorta known he's around. He doesn't seem dangerous by the way. Mr Ed Fishbowl, no fish golf. No, we're playing with fire there. Why we will be that. You think we're going to get the B word for. That I. Read The be fire. You mean because it's a black and white. Even it's not even in college. Yeah.

I don't think it's like canceled I. Just think it's I think he's I. Think if. They were I think they were really mean to the horse. Right I don't think the horses a canceled.

"You know at first believing of anyway in the series finale. ALF gets a call from his girlfriend. Rhonda and I don't remember what what Rhonda's with his. He had a buddy. Anna girlfriend, who were still like survived the explosion on Mailman And basically they said. Yeah, we! We have one chance to come get your. We're GONNA. Come. Get You tomorrow night. One of the weird things is. The parents are like so excited that Alpha's leaving. You'd think after a few seasons they have you know a fall in love with. Alpha made him part of the family while they tolerate him. They are very excited. particularly. The MOM is so site for right, not a lot of growth on the show. This the sun is not happy, and the daughter is lukewarm. I think they had some. They butted heads a few times, but she likes ultimately. So anyway, a spoiler alert for the series finale of Al they did not know would be the series finale. They thought it would come back fifth season, so it ends on to be continued, but Alf they drive out to like an abandoned parking lot outside La, and the spaceship starts coming down, and then the feds come. They roll up like ten cars deep. and Alf is is basically taken away as the series ends Oh my God, and it's to be continued. See figure. He's going to break out, but they never got to let us know so then six years later I think he does break out of. On Alpha, movie or whatever it's called. The expression innocent until proven. Where'd you get this stuff? soundboard. From this episode no from I did not build an Alpha soundboard the existing out soundboard. A WHO yes, so Alpha ends on a very dark note Alf. Yeah it starts with him crashing into the garage, like and and you know they sort of immediately. To him and they're fine. It's outfits like he speaks fluent English he's sort of like smart enough to know what's going on, but like his spelling is bad, you know he has a lot like malapropisms and like. Thinks thing you know is wrong about certain things, but he's ultimately pretty smart. I guess ultimately the ideas like he's likable so therefore. Nobody else has to be likable. Didn't want an oracle like some of the pop out and be more popular than the yeah I now i. feel like that Alf living your house would not be worst. Case scenario first off at can have a podcast that nobody would know what he looks like. You could just start his own podcast. Do his own. And Yeah. He's GonNa, probably eat you out of house and home. Sure that's the thing but overall you know he seems to. Get along good with the kids. One of the main one of the main themes I see from like my our reading the wikipedia pages for ALF is. He does like them out of House and home right lane he does. He does cost a lot of money because he eats so much because eight stomachs, and it's expensive like one episode he takes up a paper or it gets ten different paper routes to make some money, but like yeah, they do. They don't like the fact that like they. They use their whole college their daughters old golic. Golic fun just to feed out. That was a tension I also feel like that. Alf has like aspirations of breaking into the entertainment industry like this is like a Lotta. Pictures of Al holding a microphone I. See like a different like screw thumbnails of like different episodes with like Ed McMahon of like Alf, trying to get on the tonight, show or Alpha. Sort of like a late night. Talk show host so I think that was sort of like a head of his time with being like the amateur podcast here. Yeah, that's a good call. PODCAST would work for him I do think like he could have been an influence her if he just been able to post stuff, but like not say where he was. Could have been like like sort of an anonymous alien. He would have had a lot of a lot of fouls. Probably an instagram. Yeah Yeah. Real deadpan sense of humor. Alf also yeah Alf selling flat Tommy tee for eight different stomachs. A flat tovey no problem. Yeah so I was a little before his time. That's why I do think he. He should come back out alpha's ready for combat. I think they've tried to bring Alf. Tried and flopped right away. Don't know why I don't know if you need the guy who the voice i. don't know what his deal is if he's still with us, Abe's if isn't that the costume is bad. Is that like we'll? Solid. I think it's like. Good I think it's fine. Yeah, I, don't know Yeah I feel like that Alf. It's a it's a timeless story. the story of someone coming to this country trying to make make something happen. I gotta be away. Maybe we could figure it out as we go along here, but. It's also like I, had the show on, and I didn't even realize my sons had walked into the room and we're watching behind me and they were transfixed my 401k watch more very interested in what else was doing could not care less when the humans were on a screen. Oh No, yeah, but that's I think. The grownups felt that way, too. Yeah I think everybody but. Alpha is also involved in younger son. Brian has a school project. Also, that is working with him on. He is like a recital and ALF is working with him on rehearsing.

He and Thompson became engaged although they were never married. They finally called. It quits in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty seven, but Simon mccorkell jail known for some people from the nineteen eighties as the guy who started mammal. He got the role of the shark. Hunter Fish Rice after David Warner and Peter Firth turned it down as for Roy Scheider. Why is he not in this film while he wasn't even asked actually stated. Stated in an interview sometime later that not even Memphis Sophocles could have gotten him to do another jaws film. He went so far as to take the job in blue thunder to make sure that he was not going to be available. At the time, they were scheduled to shoot jaws three. He didn't want any part of it. Any excuse was reached for now after Matheson brought in the brody boys to script Alves. Alves and hits egg. They felt that the revised script still needed some more work safely brought in my cane once again, not the actor, the screenwriter to spruce up the dialogue, and to give it more of a comedic edge, but that script still fell short. They wanted the characters to be relatable, and there's situations to be fun, so they hired once again coming in to save the day Carl Gottlieb. He wrote the final. Final scripts for both of the prior jaws films they wanted him to bring in Levity, and those character touches like the first two films had because at that time they had already cast the movie Gottlieb got to know the actors and their personalities, and what made them tick, so he was able to use that knowledge to work character touches into the script that they could handle now as far as what the final. Final script that godly produced we see in Joss the sons of Sherif Brody. They are now in Florida elder son Mike. He's completing this two year construction project for this underwater structure that he's building in the lagoon at seaworld that people could walk in. There's going to be a restaurant and everything all under the water, and all of these fish are going to be all around them. Mike's younger brother Sean played by John. John Putsch, he's visiting from College Sean. Unlike Mike, he suffers from aqua phobia, he doesn't want to get in the water, and that's brought about from his harrowing near death. Experiences that we witnessed from the first two jobs films, and he has reason to fear here. He doesn't know what though at the beginning, a young great white shark enters into the lagoon through the filtration system and up ends the pre opening day. And when one of the crew ends up, getting viciously chomped. It appears that this might actually not have done. A larger shark would have had to have been responsible, and they shudder to realize that the sharks mother, a massive thirty five foot long great white has also passed into the park, hungry for the taste of human flesh hand, also for the taste of underwater seaworld structures, a lot more to this story than that, but like I say for these jaws sequels you don't. Don't go into the sequels looking for more than just a basic premise now alves brought in some pretty unique ideas for how to shoot the shark, including this point of view, angle this shot from inside the shark's mouth. You're inside the shark. Looking out of its mouth. He originally developed that idea for a scene that he wanted to use the original jaws where. Where the Shark Attacks Matt Hooper in a cage, but Spielberg felt at that time that it distracted instead of enhanced the horror for that scene they built this one point. Six Million Gallon tank at the seaworld marine life theme park in Orlando Florida, and because Orlando is sixty miles inland. Obviously, a shark is not gonNA be able to get in there, but you know. Know through movie it's somehow ends up being on the shore, so they had some additional shooting to take place at the Sea World Park in San Diego as well as the Florida keys to use for some of the water skiing scenes now, though the unpredictability of the weather in the ocean traffic, we're no longer issues as well as the saltwater to the sharks. The shoot would be far from easy for ourselves. Because of the Three D. Process The era vision, three d process this kind of this new state of the art at least at that time, split Lynn system that allow them to use one camera instead of two. It was not quite ready to go, so they brought in Chris Khandan, who was in charge of Stereo Vision? He would come in for the first couple of weeks of shooting using the Stereo Vision Technique, but most of those result ended up being unusable in house mine, so the reflects cameras. Once he did arrive. They had to reshoot. But they were also very challenging to use required extensive pre planning for each specific shot, and at fifteen million dollars budget. This would end up becoming the most expensive three D film May to that date now unlike the prior films, there were not any delays due to a malfunctioning mechanical shark in jaws three, they made the sharks using the chassis from one of the sharks from just two and his new shark, which was designed by Roy Arbogast. It had more flexibility in its movement and its skin, and had articulation in its gills, and it's is would roll back as a real shark does when it bites into something. And there was also another shark used to represent its fin from above the water, and also for its tail section, so they really had everything ready to go. That went like clockwork, one of the few things really now once. Once it was all said and done once he had completed. The film jaws three rolled out without any advance screenings for the public or for critics. They wanted to avoid bad press because they knew that they had a film that probably was going to be derided. So the three D. Gimmick it did interest audiences enough, and it set a box office record on its opening weekend for the big. Big Film made by universal to date. It actually lingered around long enough despite bad word of mouth to generate profit raked in about three times, its shooting budget at about forty five million dollars, and maybe five times, if you factor in the additional thirty two million dollars and took overseas, but critics were far from behind when they did see the final film. They proclaim jaws three D as one of. Of the worst films of Nineteen, eighty-three was nominated for five golden. Raspberry awards those razzies. Worst picture were screenplay Joe Alves for worst director Lou Gossett junior for worst supporting actor that was actually the same year he had won an Oscar for an officer and a gentleman so pretty mixed results there and the two dolphins that are in this film also got nominated Cindy Sandy for worst new stars. So pretty much basted film by the critics, even if it turned a modest profit I, think what made the original jaws effective was the vision and the talent of Steven Spielberg, Spielberg he utilized a lot of his great skills, his eye for cinema, and he created one of the best horror adventure films of all time now just you. It was a considerable step down, and that's mostly because director Geno Swarak. He didn't really have a lot of time. Maybe he didn't have the talent either to construct anything beyond a workable film now with just three Joe Alves. This was. was his first actual direct to`real effort, even though he was second unit director, the previous film, the lack of experience really does show here. He does lack the experience built adequate tension or terror, or even engaging presentation, the charge attacks themselves lack suspense. They're replaced here by cheap attempts at shock and Gore and Joe Alves just did not understand that the terror of a shark attack comes from what you cannot see much more so than what you can. Because the sharks face is featured quite prominently whenever it makes an appearance, and the scares are diminished by the familiarity not..

"Were at the end of their contract. They were now free to move to Twentieth Century Fox. They told universal that they were available as consultants. If they decided to make another jaws film in the future now by nineteen eighty overseas theatre owners began to demand of. Of Universal that they put out another jaws movie because they were experienced, high audience demand, they were always asked. When's the next jaws coming out I? Keep hearing about it. When is it coming out? And with their theatrical film that they had been working on for so long dead in the water, universal contemplated, making a quickie TV film that they could release in the United States on television, but the actually in other parts of the world, so Alan Landsberg productions. They were the makers of such TV Fares. The TV shows that's incredible and also Gimme a break and many others. They bought out the rights from ZANUCK and Brown to make their jaws project four TV. TV with Universal Buying International Distribution Rights Gordon, true blood he was known for making a made for TV nature runamuck films for Landsberg. He came up with this initial premise. He contemplated making the next jaws at disaster movie. It would have the title of Jaws Eighty, one that was kind of like the airport films that had the year after the title of airport and true blood spent several months working out this concept of a shark that swims upstream and ends up in a lake, and it causes a lot of deadly problems for the local fishers and other people who inhabit the lake, and they would have to send in hunters to route the dangerous shark out. Like the idea, he met with mill Stewart and slotted him as possible director after he had his stint making the white lions for Landsberg and also to star. At least one of the main stars would be Mickey Rooney who had done Landsberg award winning TV film called Bill But, true bled script really did not Garner. universals enthusiasm, so landsberg brought in a bigger gun, veteran, novelist and screenwriter. Richard Matheson, Matheson coincidentally had worked on the fringes of jaws. He had worked with jaws. JAWS director Steven Spielberg for his early made for TV film called dual and Jaws twos. Director Shannon Shark for somewhere in time he did the script based off of his own novel called Bid Time Return Matheson was not shown, or he really didn't have any direct knowledge of true blood script. He didn't even know it existed. He received only Landsberg story outline of this shark in a lagoon and went with that premise for his own script, the delays though in personnel and the. The changes made did draw the attention of the executives at MCA. which were the parent company universal? Although universal was not producing jaws three, they did intend to distribute it, and they did not want a sub-standard product, so verna fields universal's vice president, and also the editor for the original jaws, she told Joe Alves who was the production designer on the first two films and the second unit director on jaws to. She told him to go. Find out what's going on and see. See if he could steer things in the right direction, Alves immediately saw significant problems Landsberg told him that they did not need mechanical shark for their film because they could use stock footage from that's incredible and mixed out with new footage using these half scale, human dummies filled with chum that the smaller sharks would eat. They would look bigger though because the dummies were smaller, Alves knew that this was just never going to fly with audiences. It would probably be absolutely laughable. Passed on the chance to produce the film, but he did offer to help matheson scout locations because he wanted them to avoid an expensive and prolonged shoot like the experience with the first two films. Alves recommended that they use a large tank to shoot aquatic scenes. That would be less expensive and they can control their environment much more. They visited several aquariums and marine parks for their ideas and the one thing that really popped out to Alves. Matheson was this immersive underwater exhibit that they saw at Marineland of Florida. It featured this twenty three minute seventy millimeter. Documentary called seadream and that was made by Murray Lerner now for a tech head like Alves, this film was a revelation, and the gear started spinning in his mind that they might actually be able to produce the same effect in movie theaters within the context of a jaws movie, and this film also inspired the aquatic theme park idea because this would be a natural place where they could have control of the shark and the shooting locations something that made the prior two. Runway over schedule and over budget, and it would also be able to use a freshwater tank to avoid the corrosive aspects of the saltwater that kept ruining the use of mechanical shark, so Alves drew up this concept of a shark coming out of the screen at the audience jaws, three d, he showed this art concept to Landsberg and then to Sid Sheinberg. They were captivated after MCA's other head. Lew Wasserman took a look. Look Landsberg sent the script to Murray. Lerner to see if he would be interested in helping out with the making of the next jaws movie in Three D as he did for seadream, as the already had an art director assigned to the film learner, he really didn't want any involvement so Wasserman and Landsberg then urged Joe, Alves control and direct whatever he had in his mind, not for television, but for theaters in the. The US. This was going to be an event film now with Alves in place as director Landsberg phoned up producer Rupert hit SIG to work as the line producer Hitech wanted no part of it. Initially, he felt that the franchise had run its course, and also mentioned that he had absolutely no knowledge of three D, a film, making process, which is kind of what Landsberg said. He wanted for this role because while Alves. Alves would concentrate on the technical aspects hits. It could make sure that it stayed on track as a narrative movie after Hick, met with Alves Landsberg. He actually grew excited about the prospects and he signed on board eagerly meanwhile universal executives they deem that the script by Matheson was full of a lot of problems. Mathieson story did not tie in at all with the first two jaws, films and Sid Sheinberg insisted that. That the main character had to be related, it should be Mike Brody. The eldest son of chief brody and he wanted to also somehow bring in Sean Brody into the story as well Matheson thought that this was absolutely ridiculous, because the burden family was going to experience another shark problem in a completely different part of the country, and even more so universal also requested on top of that that they used the same shark. Shark from jaws to as the main nemesis, all burnt up, but still alive, somehow even though we saw it get electrocuted jaws to Matheson asserted that audiences would just absolutely laugh at this twist so universal at least wisely backed off of that idea, anyway on top of this Landsberg also asked Mathieson to write in a role, a big role specifically for his friend. Mickey Rooney Asset thank you for his emmy and Golden. Golden Globe winning performance in the TV movie bill, which also won four Landsberg a Golden Globe for best TV film. Matheson wrote in Mickey's part as this clown who entertained the crowd at the water park? This was a role that he ended up taking back out. Though because Mickey, Rooney soon became unavailable thankfully I. Guess for Matheson however. Rooney's coast are in Bill Dennis Quaid. He was given the lead role of Mike Brody. Brody Quaid later would call jaws three the worst experience of his life. You also claimed that he was sky high on cocaine, throughout every seeing that he shot now as for the cast that he brought in Alves, he wanted to train the actors to handle the underwater drama. He didn't WANNA use stunt people because he planned to have some actual dramatic things happen while they were under the water so Dennis Quaid was. WAS TRAINED TO LEARN TO SCUBA DIVE in. He was also shown how to ride a Jetski. Armstrong was trained to ride on the backs of Wales and communicate with Dolphins, and in the case of Lia Thomson. She would learn how to water ski, and but not only just water ski, but do it in a pyramid formation with with other women standing on each other's shoulders. Lee Thompson was cast here. This was actually her. Her film debut. She was discovered from a Burger King commercial by the casting director, and she beat out the likes of Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is hot from fast times at Ridgemont high at the time Dennis Quaid by the way at that time he was married to actress.
"alf" Discussed on Around the World in 80s Movies
"You can find the link to that at that website. Stir Dot net today I'm going to be getting into the third of a four part series looking at the jaws, films of the nineteen seventies and eighties. Of course, this is a show mostly about the nineteen eighties and. And we're getting into the first of the jaws films that take place in the nineteen eighties from nine, hundred, eighty, three I'm talking about jaws three, or you can call it by its the actual title of Jaws Three d because it was released in three D in One thousand, nine, hundred three. It's a PG rated film does have some Gore sensuality and language the? The runtime is an hour and thirty eight minutes. The cast of stars include Dennis Quaid. BESS Armstrong Louis. Gossett Junior Simon mccorkell. John Putsch and Leah Thompson Joe Als is the director. The screenplay credited to Carl Gottlieb Richard Matheson and Michael Caine not that Michael Caine not the one that appears in jaws the revenge. This screenwriters last name is spelled. K. A. N. E.. We start back in the beginning of Nineteen seventy-nine Comedian Chevy. Chase. He made a joke to a couple of junior exacts at universal pictures. He joked that they should combined their two biggest recent successes of nineteen seventy-eight, and make a sequel to both of them called jaws meets animal house now while that was initially a Joke Mountain Daniels thought that actually might be a good idea so they. They casually mentioned it to their boss Universal's president Ned Tannen and the attendant thought that was kind of an intriguing ideas, so he thought he should pass it along to jaws, producers, Richard Panik and David Brown, and they immediately loved it. They thought this was a great idea because they were stuck on what to do next without Roy Scheider wanting to appear in any other jaws, movies and And without wanting to regurgitate the same formula over and over now while at lunch with National Lampoon's publisher, he had just started turning into a movie producer Matty Simmons David Brown pitched. The idea jaws meets. Animal House Simmons immediate response to this idea was I hate it and the reason why he hated. It is because he already had a follow up to animal house in his mind it. It was going to be set six years later. He did not want to screw up his franchise. Polluting it with another franchise round explained that the film this Jaws Animal House. Idea it didn't really need to tie in directly with the characters or the story from Animal House, or even Josh for that matter. It just needed to be a jaws film in comedic style of National Lampoon. Lampoon so Simmons, he started riffing. He played along. He thought you know. What would a jaws three be like? In the hands of National Lampoon? He entitled it on the spot, jaws, three people, zero or people nothing, but it's spelled with a numeral zero Simons envisioned this kind of Meta comedy about this vengeful shark who goes out hunting and killing these movie makers who are trying to make? Make another entry in jaws. He could have Peter Benchley eaten by a shark in swimming pool for the opening scene and Steven Spielberg he could get different body parts bitten off of him throughout the movie, the Real Life Studio heads could come in, and they can play the heavies, and the actors in the writers could be the good guys, and by the end of all of this. This riffing this conversation David. Brown of course found it all hilarious Simmons. He actually ended up loving his own idea that he had hated an hour before and Simon said that he would work out the details from the business side, and they left it at that flash forward two months later, universal now publicly announced their next big comedy. Jaws, three people nothing. Simmons would right the initial treatment. Treatment for this film, and he would also be the producer Zanuck and Brown would be the executive producers and national. Lampoon's editors John Hughes that John this time the John Hughes that created all of those great teen comedies of the nineteen eighties and also Todd Carol. They would both provide the script John Dante he would get the nod to direct what promised to be his first studio. And they all bounced all of these Wacky Zany ideas off the wall. They throw them all in there. In the script. Including this revelation that the sharks are actually aliens in disguise. I mean this was a real kitchen sink approach to making a comedy for their star. Simmons cast comedian Roger Bumps now. If that name sounds familiar to you, you must be a fan. Fan of spongebob squarepants because today he voices squidward tentacles on that show. Simmons at that time felt that bump us. Who was pretty much unknown? He would become the next big star. The biggest star of the nineteen eighties in the world of comedy he was set to skyrocket Stephen. I would appear as a leading man who had let himself go. They approached Mary. Mary at Hartley about a role that she could play as a studio executive, but she turned it down now at a preview screening of Blake words ten at universal Siemens became enamored of Bo, Derek in that film, and he approached her after the film and offered her the lead actress role in this jaws, three film, and within two days she came back to. To him and she agreed she would do it, so he had his leading lady set a slew of Cameo appearances would also be in the film Mel Brooks Jonathan Winters Mickey Rooney as well as those who were involved in the making of jaws. They hoped MCA President Sid Sheinberg his wife. Lorraine Gary and Richard Dreyfuss and and maybe more if they could get. Get them now at this point. It all seemed like this was going to be. An absolute can't miss effort. I mean this was a film that would be the third in the top franchise. Time jaws the second film for National Lampoon Right after the phenomenal breakthrough that was animal house, and this would also be Bo Derek's next film after becoming an overnight sensation with. With ten. This was going to be a hundred million dollar picture. They all felt the studio was very excited. As well they had locations scouted. They started reconditioning all of the sharks that were news from jaws to appear in this film in all, told universal plunk down about two or three million dollars in the pre development phase before even anything started filming Richard. Richard Zanu felt that the first script that he'd read from. Hughes and Carol was absolutely Hilarious, but he did question. There need to go for R. Rated Humor. He thought that this should be like the jaws films. PG rated in order to attract the biggest audience. The studio was also less enthused for their own reasons. They thought that the writers were making fun. Fun of the very people who may jaws much more so than they were actually spoofing the killer shark genre, which is what they thought that this film was going to be about an after five more passes, and trying to tone down this original script to make a PG rated version while also reducing obvious connections to real life people that are in the business. It also lost a lot of its original flavor, and it seemed like it was going to be a lousy marriage fraught with a lot of creative differences, overall so universal unfortunately nixed it even after all of their investment years later. Matty, Simmons he had heard that the reason why universal nixed it was because Steven Spielberg was adamantly opposed to jaws, becoming a spoof, and he felt the canceled it because they didn't want him to leave them in protest, but at the time Simmons was obviously incensed, he had wasted so much time about a year and a half of his time putting it all together only to end up with nothing, so he wanted immediately out of. of his universal contract, so he could shop this idea to another studio willing to pay the turnaround costs and universal consented on the stipulation that whatever film that Simmons and whatever studio he took it to made, they could not have a shark or any other kind of water creature in it. It had to be absolutely divorced from Jaws Zanuck and Brown the also left universal, not in protest. Necessarily they.

Iowa caucuses: Buttigieg and Sanders in airtight race for the lead
"So partial results as we as we record this from the Iowa Democratic Caucus just released Tuesday afternoon after Monday. Night's delay have Pete Buddha judge and Bernie Sanders in the lead former South Bend. Indiana mayor people to judge was in the lead with twenty seven seven percent of delegates and delegates. And say I accept that one lady that was not a fan when he was married to a man in third and fourth respectively are Elizabeth. Warren eighteen percent and Uncle Joe Man Sixteen sixteen percent for Joe Biden. The release of the partial count comes after heavy criticism of course of the vote counting process in the state that forced the Democrats to delay releasing using the results after the caucus. These results are based on sixty two percent of the votes from priests precincts in all the ninety nine states. It'll get easier Also I read that. There's lots of other states that are using this kind of technology like Nevada's next and three weeks like don't worry. We got under control because this APP was a disaster voting seems pretty rudimentary like it seems to this day and age. Figure this one out card in the slot My feeling with the more sort of I think in California you can vote like ten days or the election we also have stuff for like people go door to door and get your vote and bring it in for themselves and then. There's all the controversy about whether it's of oppression of colored people or whatever they're complaining about my feeling assists. Let's just go have a day. You fucking vote on that day or you. Don't vote on that day. It's it's on the calendar. It's almost coming. Do you think that should be a national holiday so awesome. It should be a national holiday or should be able to do a half day or there should be basically rule that says look. I've lived all over the place. I'm not particularly motivated. And there's always a place to vote. It's down at the church. It's down corner parts now that the school to whatever it's all kind of on the way and then people go. What about some of these people live in rural Mississippi and they only have a donkey? Okay the maybe they. They'll vote. We'll get by on it. And then and then they go well. Shouldn't they be allowed to vote. Well here's the thing when you live in the fucking sticks. You don't have access to a costco. A lot of schools. Don't have accents or live in the fucking sticks. That's your your thing. Now there's probably advantages that go along with that and you can kill all the Avon ladies you want to stash them under your port and nobody's wiser Weiser Avon ladies myself but if you're off the grid wouldn't cadillacs line to find more fascinating about this whole thing is just how how much how much weight people put on is there. A state that is less representative of what the Modern Democratic Party is Iowa the whole state of Iowa there are less people than in Los Angeles Orange County one. There's like one black guy in Iowa right isn't that how many who's there the representative of the of the cheap modern Hakka who cares. I don't I'm sorry I don't care what people in Iowa think about. Who should be the next president? Why don't we matter more in in California? We're we're like half the United States is here because we're a bunch of liberal Douche. Nobody cares about us. Well we have a black listeners. A female ALF. We need you to move one so that we can repopulate number one number two. So there's all the controversy make it make it a holiday or half day or whatever again if you if you live on a fan vote on the swamp. That's your fucking business. You may not get to vote on this debt because we're just having a day you show up or if it's important to you park available at that day in in Uber and to extend the and show an ID and if you don't have access on ide- let's work on that too because it's two two thousand twenty everyone needs an ID. You can't travel. You can't have a life. You can't book anything you can't. You can't really pay taxes. You're not on the grid if you don't have an ID you're you don't exist assist in this country in any meaningful way and you can't take and you can't give if you don't have an ID so let's get you an ID. Let's pick a day as making a holiday. Alday go and show your. Id cast vote and that'll be it. We'll be waiting for stuff to come in and all that and look if you happen to be in Hong Kong along and you move there for years ago for business maybe you don't vote for four years that's fine and that's a that's a choice. You made it. That's fine. I'm fine with it. It's a couple of people. Spread spread
What to Expect from 'Lord of the Rings: Gollum'
"I totally forgotten that this Lord of the Rings Column Game had been announced early last year. Same Lord of the Rings. Ghalem a game where you play as column based on the books not the movies in a Prequel to Lord of the Rings The update this week. We've got some game playing some information about the game. This week is also confirmed for places and five and Xbox in twenty twenty one confirmed Nexgen Platform. So what are some of the details yet. Well let's see here We don't gone is GonNa look like obviously not gonNa look like Indie Circus's version of dumb. They mentioned in that early illustrations of gallon. where he's huge like shop thing much Fisher told edge edge magazine that Tolkien didn't have a size reference for them? To begin with so in the first illustrations he's gigantic like a monster. Emerging from the swamp cool token like revise is that. I'm sure I'm sure. Oh wait a minute what also is it up to Tolkien. Here's a big Gomez. Yeah he was a hobbit. Yeah we talking talking about in these early in these early illustrations. He hadn't determine that he was hobbit yet. Don so that's a good point but there's a whole like the weibring up for something like Star Wars is the whole story group that's helping to side with cannon and what's not but with Lord of the rings it's like anybody could just paint whatever they wanted. Yeah that's true that's true. Yeah yes bipedal. It'll creature out the window. I hope it's I hope it's a riddle generator. That's the game. Yeah you know what I hope. It's going to be a fishing in a fishing. I love fishing game. I'm sure there will be fishing moments. I hope how else how else you exactly. Luckily you love just fishing. If not fishing mini games you love the fishing games like bass master. Yes I was going to mention the Black Bass and the Blue Marlin brand. Yes this great. Those guys are great. Yeah we are. They can't can't tell if serious no love fishing. RPG's big fan. They have such a strong fishing. If if you go to different lakes and use a boat if so wait. I'm sorry if I missed this. Who is the developer of the data? Data Lick So. That's not warner brothers. No because Warner Brothers has the right to the movies. The move gains based on the movie shadow of war isn't n specifically they WANNA to move away. They are using they use. Peter Jackson's version of knowledge Okay all right we know that in ORCs look like ORCs in the as In this game so it's data look entertainment which they've made a bunch of games that I've never heard of he's like did you did you. We were talking about so they said there's decision making in this game which all games have like dialogue decision making on the Duma or not Damon Telltale game Telltale style game. And I think it's just going to be an action game with segments. I dated has made point and Click Adventures. I think that's kind of what they're known for. Click like you know if it's a Prequel who knows what it gone. We're going to get but he doesn't lend himself to like you know action need three world still sure it could be like like almost daily Stealth Ish game yeah. I don't think it's going to be like gallon. Like throttling a bunch of people and infiltrating base. But I think it'd be cool if you're like avoiding you know stuff stuff obstacles and then maybe exploration I mean he can he can basically move vertically on walls he it could be a climate uncharted mccollum. Gholam a good way to sir. John's like that's like a combination of climbing puzzles. Yes and throttling gum hiding all the triggers an internal final dialogue options Gome should absolutely be able to climb everything. That's what he does and fish. We blame as deep into his corruption by the one ring and he conveys a different set of emotion than those seen in the films because he needs to be more sympathetic and relatable because you're playing his his care changing the character to fit your interests. He's fairly senior Eh. Things that cute song sneakers. But he's a betrayer and Taylor's we can expect stealth Alf gameplay dual personality mechanic huge levels so that doesn't sound like one click adventure huge levels in a move away from the violence. The dominance other Lords utterings games lord of the rings plural is shadow lords of the ring. If this takes place between the Hobbit and Lord of the rings that's an era in which ghalem goes to more door gets captured word gets tortured gets captured again by Era Gorn when he set free goes to Merck quilt. You go into more detail this. This is interesting okay. So we're explained this to me yesterday. Yesterday you want me to go into more detail and year thirty thirteen We know that the bill meets Ghalem and yeah gets gets the ring from him. Yeah so then. At that point a gallon is like whoa. You Know He. He knows that there's a thing called the Shire and he knows what that there's half lanes and that WHO baggins begins right and we know that because in the very beginning of ordering seen the movies he's shouting that it'd be well being tortured and and more door and that's because he he leaves and he goes to try to figure out where his ring is and at some point he gets captured and taken and tortured. But then Sarah and says you probably try to trick us and they're not giving us all this information but you did give give us this great information that there's somebody in bags in the shower or whatever the show in the movie goes Shire back in. They all the black. Riders are repeating so then Then he uses gallon because they think like. Oh we'll just follow them and he'll lead us right to at some point in their duck alum talks to she. She blob probably and stuff like that. I don't know because then he has a relationship but she later you know where you can say like. Eat these hobbits and we'll make a deal. But then he goes to to to He gets captured by airborne and they want to interview him at that point because they know he had something to do with the ring again. That's trying to figure out what the one if it's the one ring or not but she doesn't realize for a long time he knows it's ring a power. There's there's eleven of them or whatever so that will happen again. Stopped me when I'm going too far Oh I'm just trying to give geographic sense of where gallon could go then. He goes to to be captured by the ELVES. And Merck would and there's a battle there's the There's a the sirens. Dark forces are like you know in Merck. Would at that time and all the stuff happening so there could be a battle sequence in this too but then gallon gets out and then somehow he meets up with the fellowship in under the misty mountains in the minds Maurier. So that means he's probably released for you. He's a ski escapes escapes in the turmoil or something from recruited and during that battle and then he comes across in his lost and maybe more effort longtime because he just comes upon them then and that's that's the point which he joins wins the hunt for the ring again. This is all happening before the game supposed to be set before all that stuff. Yes yes so. I think this would lead up to the point in which he's maybe in market or something like that add maybe it ends with him like finding the fellowship probably doesn't make sense Yeah I guess it would make sense. He's lost the ring so that's why he's on a quest to try and get. Yeah exactly I think that could be the motivation if it's before that if it's when he has the ring like it could be about him like losing the ring in the cave and just trying to find it because he lost and then before that which I don't think it would be it'd be him finding the ring being corrupt and kicked out of the village and all that stuff which they also seem to allude to the fact that like through these narrative decisions that you're making within the dialogue as you're single versus column that you can arrive at an ending that's more leaning towards one personality over the others that kind of gives an idea of what the story might be or at least what the ending room gone has technically a happy ending because he gets that rain and it's just yes second or two. Yeah well spoilers We my favorite part of that whole Lord dumped by the way. Is that in when you saw the hobbit movies which are terrible but they expand a lot on this in the books golic just disappear. Excuse me Gandalf just disappears from the book and then he comes back in like a hundred pages later is like Oh sorry I had to go take down this neck. Romance her in the forest and then he's just back in the book. It's not a part of the story story. It's never addressed again when you're a child reading this book. What what just happened like he kicks he kicks out of Merck? Would and it happens off off camera and the book it's insane. Yeah he like fleas. I think even showed that a little bit in the hobbit movies Dayton whole subplot in. But that's what they're talking about. Well so what's your impression of this Looking about the comments a lot of people were like why would I want to play his column in a game of any guarantee and Lord of the Rings would I want to be going. Well certainly sets you in like more of Steph environment airman. So that's cool. It's different than the shadow of war or more door games that we played. I think he's really interesting negatively. But it's the game play you know. I don't know there's there's a reason that those games are like sword and board. That's a very established format for making a successful fund. Video game now has been like a kind of a controversial addition to the Lord of the Rings Really Creepy. And I don't really you know it's really Peter. Jackson did a lot with that character to make it. I think more fleshed out an interesting resting than I ever thought of in the books and I think that's a really good thing so I'll do that. It'd be great also a credit to Andy Circus and you know my policy on elves. And everything. Only tolkien's allowed to use those. Yeah that's elves and hobbits especially if those are in other things come on how lame up with your own stuff. How lame are the ELVES pitcher? Yeah Oh my God. Nobody does not the half lanes man. They're they're in the game that's like nobody else can do hobbits but they cheat by having hassling. Yeah aw come up with your own fantasy stuff. I agree it's not as bad. I can't even talk about the witcher though because later episodes knows of other bad things anyway. Lord of the Rings Column Coming 2021. PS Five xbox series x alongside.
Chris Reining on Personal Finance Decisions & How to be Financially Free
"Get right to the post and start optimizing your life sir. I'm financially independent now. What by Chris Rining of Chris RINING DOT COM? Today's question comes. From David. He asks quote. I happened upon your site today and engaged in some Sunday morning. Binge reading very much enjoyed reading your articles and appreciate your efforts to help others and transform their lives in reading through the questions that have been posed to you. I noticed that most of the questions concern ways to save and invest of course amassing sufficient resources. Resources is a necessary. Step too early retirement but it doesn't address the harder at least me question of who wants to be nor of what one wants to accomplish in in retirement. I've been fortunate to have a successful career. As an attorney for the past sixteen years between a healthy income and a lifelong habit of saving. I can retire now at is still pretty. Youthful forty one. If I were to choose to do so while I enjoy the intellectual aspects of my job and the relationships that I have with many of my colleagues I find myself considering the same and thought that you mentioned that is there must be something more to life than doing this day. In and day out I would also enjoy reducing the stress and anxiety in my life that comes from my work. All of that said I'm not quite sure who I would be separate from my profession. My question for you is. What process did you go through to consider how you wanted to spend your life post employment point? I would imagine that it is a continuing process for you and others but I'm interested in how you approach the issue and quote like I always say early. Retirement has has nothing to do with doing nothing. It's about gaining control over your time. Time is your most valuable resource like mark. Cuban says quote. You can't buy it you can't find it you can't store it you can't trade it and quote and that's why people want to become financially independent. They realized that every day their life is getting shorter and wasting a single minute. Doing things they don't want to do is a waste of life. I was friends with an executive and he told me that he hated his job. And didn't WanNa keep doing what he was doing and then he said this. Is it it for me. Meaning he was going to keep doing what he hated for the rest of his life because he wasn't willing to give anything up which is typical for guys in their forties. They're working some high pay a high stress job thinking superficial things will make them happy measuring themselves against other people. I know because that's what I was doing. In my twenties I bought a BMW. A two hundred under thousand dollar CONDO and started flying smaller planes. If you never stop and think about any of this how you're living then you're destined to spend your life filling it with more stuff trying being to impress other people instead you can have a more meaningful life by filling it with stuff. That's important to you. That's the question you need to be asking yourself. What's important to me and if you ask people this question most of them will say things like freedom and flexibility great? But that doesn't mean anything you have to dig deeper so freedom becomes time and time turns into the question. What would I do with it? My answer one work on what. I'm passionate about to challenge myself. Alf continued to grow and three heaven impact on the greatest amount of people. Yeah pretty simple. And now whenever you're faced with some major life decision like quitting a fifteen eighteen year career. It's these little rules that help guide you. This is how to start optimizing your life for meaning and significance to stop measuring yourself against other people and start measuring yourself self against what's important to you. It's how to wake up. People would kill to be in your financial situation because people are always telling me that they want to be doing anything other than going to work. I mean seventy percent of workers hate their jobs. They're telling me if they were financially independent. They'd spend their time watching their kids. Grow up doing more meaningful work or taking a risk. Ask to try something new. The reason you haven't quit yet is because you're attached to work the nine to five routine the relationships with co workers your identity as an attorney. It's it's a dependency. Quitting means taking a big step from the known to the unknown. It means making yourself uncomfortable but you change and grow the most by making yourself. The the most uncomfortable and the best part of quitting is when people ask you what you do for a living. Someone asked me this the other day. Nothing really know like what do you do for work. This is always a hard question to answer because our ridiculous. Does it sound saying you retired in your thirties or forties. But it's true you no longer have to work for money. So I'm spending my time reading writing and thinking working out doing yoga meditating life slows way down and if you think having this level of freedom and control all over your time we'll make you happier or that.

Intuitive Eating and Cultural Identity with Christyna Johnson, Health At Every Size Dietitian
"The question. It's from a listener named Jen and who writes Hi Christie. I'm up and down with eating struggles and I'm not sure how much of it is a lack of intuitive eating versus eating disorder related. I have a history of Anerexia UNBELIE MIA that I mostly recovered from. But I still have a bit of food obsession and body image issues that I'm holding onto it seems to go in phases a few you good weeks of feeling good and then back to it. I often find myself eating related to emotions frustration boredom etc and having a hard hard time listening to my body's cues hunger. I have a hard time saying no to myself. Even if I'm not hungry it feels more like my mind wants it than my body. I don't binged like I used to but I feel I am over eating and eating unnecessarily and trying to get satisfaction from it but often don't I often feel unsatisfied died despite allowing myself sweets regularly. I know in your podcast. You often emphasized to eat what you want but with my history. I don't know that I can trust my body's cues to do so as it often doesn't seem like a physical need for food. I'm wondering if you have any advice for me to deal with these urges. Do I need to pursue eating disorder help or intuitive. Who would've eating help? Thank you so much in advance Christie. I really appreciate any help. So thanks Jen for that. Great question and before. I answer just my standard disclaimer disclaimer. That these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes only and our substitute for individual medical or mental health health advice so first of all I wanNA send you so much compassion because it sounds like you've been through a lot in your relationship with food. Sounds like you're still going through a lot lot in your relationship with food and you know Kudos to making it this far and recovery has it's no easy feat to get out of the depths of Anorexia and bulimia even even if you're still in this gray area early recovery. I think it's amazing that you are not as engaged in the eating disorder behaviors as it. Sounds like you used to be but that said it definitely sounds like you still have a ways to go and your recovery and specifically it sounds like you still have a lot of diet mentality or eating disorder mentality going on and really. They're kind of in the same. I would say the eating disorder mentality is sort of maybe sometimes a more amplified version of the Diet mentality but it all comes from the same place place which is internalized beliefs from diet culture about foods being good or bad or issues about weight feelings and thoughts about weight right beliefs that higher weights are bad and things like that. All of that is internalized. Dia Culture beliefs that you have made your own right. So that's that's what the Diet mentality. That's what the eating disorder mentality is. And that is really evident in some of the phrase. You used here and your question Mike when you say I have a hard time saying no to myself Alf. Even if I'm not hungry and I feel I am overeating and eating unnecessarily so it sounds like you're thinking that you should be eating less and you're policing facing the amounts you eat and you're perceived reasons for eating and that's very much a restrictive mindset. That's very much a diet mentality eating disorder mentality. I'll be mindset. The reality is there's no such thing as quote unquote eating unnecessarily right. If you're eating it's necessary. It's necessary because has especially in the case of recovery from disordered eating. Your body needs to learn to trust that you're not going to start it again and Jenn. It's likely that your body body really needs a lot of work on rebuilding that trust since you had anorexia and bulimia which are really severe violations of trust for your body. Those are in trauma to the body trauma to the brain. A real disconnection of that body. Trust that we're all born with and you know it takes you away from your intuitive relationship with food when you have a disorder anorexia Bulimia which is very harsh very driven by diet culture rules and beliefs and not at all intuitive intuitive not at all honoring the hunger and fullness and satisfaction cues that you were born with and that we all deserve to be able to honor so I would really encourage you to work on this mindset and stop seeing these urges to eat and this perceived eating in response to emotions as wrong or bad the way. I think you're seeing them now. I would encourage you to get help from a dietician who's versed in both eating disorders and intuitive eating and health at every size because I think you need all of that in order to recover I think you need probably definitely still some recovery from your eating disorder. It sounds like you still have some really restrictive thinking going on that you need to to be able to recover from. Maybe some restrictive behaviors as well. When you're talking about trying to get yourself to stop eating right but you also you know? It sounds like you need some help in tuning earning back into your cues and starting to trust those cues Allah intuitive eating so finding a provider who gets that and also gets the health at every size paradigm and is not going to shame you for if you're in a larger body size of your body or say anything that inadvertently makes you feel like you have to lose weight or anything like that. It's really important to find a Dietitian who gets gets all of those things. So you can check out Kristie Harrison dot com slash providers for my recommendations of providers who get it. These are people who've been on the PODCAST. Who who really understand the anti diet philosophy and who? I think. Have the best chance of being able to help you recover. Unfortunately there are still too many eating disorder providers Out there and even intuitive eating focus providers out there who are caught up in diet culture to varying degrees. So if you WANNA try to avoid that I think my shortlist list of providers who've been on the podcast is a great place to start because I try to vet everyone really thoroughly before I even invite them onto the show so you know at least I have a sense that they are pretty well versed in all of these ideas and these philosophies and they're not gonNA turn intuitive eating into a diet for you and they're probably gonNA call you Out For trying to join intuitive eating into a diet so Christie Harrison dot com slash providers is where to get that also as I shared a few episodes ago on the podcast in the listener. QNA for episode two. Oh nine with amy severson. Hunger doesn't always manifest as sensations in the stomach in fact far from it. So when you're judging yourself as quote unquote eating because you're not hungry. I don't think that really tells the whole story either. You likely are having non stomach. Sensations nations of hunger that you just aren't identifying such as thoughts of food difficulty concentrating anxiety. You know lots of other things. So check out that episode for a deeper dive into that where I talk about the non stomach signs of hunger and the sort of things that people overlook when they're trying to learn to honor their hunger you're that's at Christie Harrison Dot com slash two oh nine Christie Harrison dot com slash two. Oh nine or wherever. You're listening to this. You can just look for episode two. Oh nine so I hope that helps ups and just want to send you a lot of compassion and a lot of support in breaking free from these last vestiges of the Diet mentality these restrictive thoughts and beliefs. About how you're eating and just give you full unconditional permission to eat whenever you feel like eating for whatever reason because you deserve it. You don't have to second gase reasons for eating. You don't have to second guess whether it's really physical or emotional or mental. It doesn't matter those distinctions. Don't matter what matters is allowing yourself full unconditional permission to eat for any reason so that you can rebuild that trust with your body after having it so damaged and so broken by the anorexia Bulimia which are really really harmful to your relationship with food right. and your ability to eat intuitively so again.

Safe Sunscreen Alternatives
"Hi Welcome to the show I'm your host. Samantha Leigh Right. The essential oil revolution is the place to go to learn about all things essential oil and health today however we are going to take a slight departure to focus Chris on a topic that I'm really passionate about and that is non toxic. sunscreen consumer awareness in general is super important. I think especially especially in the sunscreen industry. Now the interviewee that I have on the show. Today is an expert when it comes to natural sunscreen. Alternatives says he didn't know a lot about essential oils. Though so I wanted to dig up some essential oil information I could share with you all in regards to son health. Alf and here's what I found. There's a great article from a website called living pretty naturally dot com up linked to that in the show notes if anyone wants to read the entire hire article but some information. I pulled from there that I thought was really interesting. was that red. Raspberry oil is a pretty close. Ah quivalent to the protection you receive from titanium dioxide found in most mineral sunscreens Scott an SPF range of about twenty. When he eight to fifty depending on the oils quality the essential fatty acids and host of antioxidants in this oil are also great for other skin healing purposes including EXA and psoriasis Red Raspberry seed oil protects against UV A. N. The raise also another oil to note about in this is a true essential oil? I think Red Raspberry seed oil isn't technically in essential oil but carrot seed essential oil is Said said to contain a high. SPF factor win diluted with a carrier oil it can have an SPF of thirty eight to forty however aside from Red Raspberry seed oil most plant oils protect only against UV rays and not also UV rays while we're on the subject of essential oils and the Sun John always be aware that citrus oils. Such as Lime Burgum oh grapefruit orange. And even Kumon essential oil have photosynthetic properties. So please don't put those essential oils on your skin that are going into direct sunlight for at least twenty four to forty eight hours now with that said our recipe today that we're pulling from the DIY. dugout comes from Brooke Brown in Boone North Carolina. She's on Instagram at rookie. Rookie Mama Brown. And her recipe is called the after son. Spray to make the after son spray in a glass spray bottle combined. Four ounces of rosewater two to fifteen drops of lavender essential oil in one to two drops of peppermint essential oil shake well before each use and spray on skin. That's been out in the sun for a bit too
How to Follow Through on Simple Daily Habits
"You know what I'm talking about that thing that you're like yeah you know just every other day I need to call my mom or I've got her ember once a week to are the plants Dang it I have got to get back into the habit of exercising three times a week doc whatever it is right now I'm not talking about the thing that you're not doing it at all or you don't have the motivation to I'm talking about the thing that it should very easily be a habit you just keep forgetting it so maybe exercises in a good one either you keep forgetting it or you keep allowing something else to get in the way just for whatever reason you haven't been able to make it happen and it's not that hard but if it is that important we need to put some serious accountability around it so I wanNA share with you a couple of things that I've done that hopefully you can take from the US and make them your own on number one I don't have a great memory I wish I was as thoughtful dive into memory just if I'm being honest I'm not as thoughtful as my husband is every day if we're not together which we usually are if we're apart for more than a couple of hours he texts me and he'll say how are you doing today how are you feeling and he always remembers like something that happened the day before or if I maybe earlier in the week I said my foot hurts my backwards or whatever every day when he checks in with me if we're not together he remembers something specific that tells me he cares and he's thinking about me and he's listening and I am picky about him and I care and I'm listening to bring a freaking forget to do that so what I started doing being this is a couple of years ago is I created a little reminder that comes to my phone and I use an APP called if this then that if this then that and I set it up so that it sends me text message reminders and I use this like crazy so one of the things I use it for is to remind myself alf because you know if you have. Add or you just get lost in your thoughts and I'm making excuses now if you're not as thoughtful as your spouse you sometimes forget these things and you just need a little reminder so I get that little text message it'll say check in with Brett and then I remember to send him a text funny thing is earlier today I had just gotten the message I'm like Oh there it is and so I was like just composing text in and boom it beat me to already sent me a Texan is like hey what are you doing do you want me to bring you coffee I'm like Dang any beat me to it my point is you can set up reminders to help you to do the things you know you just need a little help to make certain that they happen on a regular basis another might be like maybe it's calling your mom I have a reminder that have inside of my ear it's a post it note a list of about thirteen maybe fifteen people that these are important people that don't see regularly but there are people who they're really important to me and I just want to remember to stay in touch with them so they are on a little post it note on the inside of a mere whenever I opened up my mirror I see name and I go down that list and Oh okay yesterday I texted Mindy and today I'm going to text Sean and I just go down the list and so I don't have to thirteen or fifteen of them or however many is on that list on one day but it's a reminder to get through that list because some these people I don't see on a regular basis so it's a little bit out of sight out of mind and I try to stay off a social media like I tried not to use social media to keep up with my friend I I try to really use my phone and call them in the what I liked Paul personal podcast I know there's an APP for this stuff but you know so like my friend Kim Guard I love her I see her maybe twice a year but I think about it all the time which is in my heart so rather than leading a year ago by just have this little reminder in my medicine cabinet to Texas people let me think of some other examples all right here's one I love of exercising with friends so I do that in a regular basis and I always have but depending on the season there can come at time where it's like Oh that person's really busy and then I don't see them for a while and then now suddenly I'm not exercising with a friend and I don't need to exercise with a friend to keep myself accountable but my thing is I would rather do something healthy when I get with a friend as opposed to like saying hey let's get together and it's always cocktails and food why not have it be something that's really healthy I find I tend to have deeper more personal conversations when I'm exercising with a friend anyways so I have three girlfriends who I rotate my schedule and I exercise with them and it's cool because it keeps me accountable to my fitness gene but more importantly it guarantees I'm going to spend some quality time with someone that I love and we're supporting each other and something that's good for us another example that might be maybe the thing that you need to do is you're like I'm exercising all the time but I keep telling myself I need to change it up but I'm not it so what do you need to do to make that happen do you need higher personal trainer do you need to just set a fitness date and start exercising with a partner the next examples one if you don't mind I'd like to kind of pat myself on the back I kind of need to and I want to do this and set a good example for you as I try to encourage you to do you've got to take a moment every so often typically every six months and celebrate your win this is really important if you're the kind of person who's interested in personal growth because when you're trying to be a better human being you're always trying to be better Oh you forget how vital it is to have motivation in that pursuit and if you're not ever looking back over your shoulder and to see where it is you've come from and what you've accomplished you're missing out on a healthy dose of endorphins that dopamine hit that we all need stay motivated into feel good like you need to feel good so if you can't do this for yourself I want you to ask someone else hey can you think of things that maybe I'm doing better now than I was like two years ago or five years ago or fifteen years ago a girlfriend of mine recently was going to you pretty emotional time liquor force was finally final and she's been like just a trooper through the whole thing just buckling down and doing whatever she needed to do and doing right you know and she was just like I'm just going to tell the truth and I'm going to bend over backwards I'm going to be the bigger person and all of this and it was really really hard and and she stayed really strong throughout the whole thing but then when it was suddenly final divorce was final she became surprisingly emotional she was like what is going on why emotional I've had two years to kind of processes wise it all sudden hitting me and I think sometimes we get there's something really difficult and hard it's only then that we realized we can relax for a moment and the emotions come to us just come rushing through and bret was making the analogy that a lot of times you'll see like when guys win a national championship or something really monumental from an athletic standpoint is really tough burly guys and here they are bawling their heads off at the end why will because tears are response it's a physical response to an emotional connection doesn't necessarily mean you're sad it might mean your euphoric and might mean you you're proud of yourself it it means you're happy we've all had tears of joy but she was having these tears and I said you're grow you've been holding your breath really and just doing what you needed you putting your head down and buckling down trotting through this with such determination that you probably finally just are happy the moment to be proud of yourself and and be emotional about it and that's don't try to stop that you guys like to go ahead and let that happen how did they get on the subject anyways she was kind of reminiscent in kind of you know bombed I guess and I thought I bet she doesn't realize like all the amazing changes that have happened in her life in the last two years and all the progress issues made and so I created a little voice recording kind of like this just in case she I had forgotten how far she come and I think it's important we all do that so I think about the fact that when I first started podcasting in two thousand fourteen I said I refuse to give you guys a regular schedule and I'm not going to tell you I'm GonNa podcast one time a week or two times a week or five times a week I'm just going to be asked when I can fit it in and at the time that felt like the right thing to do but honestly I wanted to podcast more I just I didn't want to disappoint anybody and I wasn't disciplined enough I didn't have schedule I I didn't want to create one that forced me into podcasting and the more I realized this was serving bowl and this was like a way to give back like it doesn't cost you anything to listen to a podcast and that there were hundreds of thousands of people that I could help like who couldn't afford what a life coach or didn't have somebody to pour into them or to share experiences they didn't have a wise friend or or maybe they just needed someone to keep him company
"alf" Discussed on The Resilient CEO
"The programs. Tell you to write out a list of fifty people that you know to share your recent accomplishment with because those people must know more people that need dance will be introduced to your butts they then have to agree that they are talking to about and then from there they can have a full conversation with your boss. share a little bit of money that's probably a good way to do it through that link the most important thing that I can tell you when you are you're a new coach or consultants and you need to grow your following 'cause you needed clients like yesterday is that this is definitely something you need to be consistent about it's going to either require your time or your money or both in order to grow your business just like any other business grows through Ad -tising through obtaining products through putting time into their youtube channel through a lot of ways to be able to get in front of their ideal clients they're also putting in their time and or their money so remember it's not just about posting on social media everyday and waiting for them appear this is not a situation like field of dreams where you're going to build it and they will come and it's not a situation of wearing the cutest red bright dress at the party and then everybody's going to notice you it requires effort and through that effort you will see results but if you stop that momentum and you stop that effort you're not going to get to the goals that you want to get and you won't be able to reach those clients who really need you remember to stay consistent be present for years Alf be present for your people share who you are to your absolute core keep your values your goals and show up and st in for what you do stand for and let them know what you stand against and by showing up as a human being well there's nothing more brilliant than that.

Women's Health & Plant-Based Nutrition With Dr. Gemma Newman
"Everyone about your path path into medicine and how you found plant based nutrition and then you know this entire episode is going to be answering a lot of questions about women's health that we get asked all all the time and i know you see this in your in your practice you take care of patients from all age ranges in all stages of life so i think that it's going to be just so informative for our listeners so starting with weird did you start in medicine getting into plant based diet and just tell her a little bit about yourself my k. well will i am as you say i'm a primary care physician and i've been working in clinical practice for fifty years now so it's been a long long time and i've been doing all sorts of specialties in that time but my my work in general practice has been for eleven years and i just ask you all sorts of people bull and my passion permits has always been i've always wanted to be a doctor and help people and get to know them and their family so it's been a dream unrealized but i did find early on in my practice that was getting increasingly frustrated because here in the UK i'm seeing you partner with a small friendly family participant typical nearly three thousand people but we only have ten minutes per person so i had to find ingenious ways of including nutritional lifestyle information in that ten minute paradigm and monies to achieve it and get some incredible results for people and it really did feel like i was suddenly able to add a lot more to my medical toolbox than i ever had before and my journey was long process i've always had an interest in life steinmetz in getting to the real root of what it is that has caused disease a condition rather than solely treating either symptomology or the actual disease process assisted self so it started early on with motivational interviewing techniques solution focused brief therapeutic approaches and then when i went into the realms off off inning to give nutrition advice i was more cautious to start with because i haven't done much study in that area at that time i kind of i knew that the general zeitgeist iced with cops a bad and but i didn't give that advice my patients freely i lost of weight that way but then what i discovered myself alf in my own house was that my lipid profiles raised despite weight loss and good exercise regimes and i have a family history of heart disease so i'm actually a few years ago was even off a deal to talk about my journey but i declined i didn't feel as though it was a good example to set for others when i was still struggling with ray snippy the profile but for a few years and i found the evidence around competition and like you know ten years on with two kids and the exercising less than half the amount manage to not only have a normal BMI but also been my lip profiles to the normal range so i was absolutely delighted and that really began my studying odyssey so i spent the last few years studying ins and outs of competition and being able to share that with my patients has been one of my absolute greatest joys i've seen so many powerful transformations in people that it's truly made medicine not only my vacation location but huge passion so it's been wonderful that is so admirable and i just love that you shared that part of your journey it's just it's i really really do find that a lot of physicians who feel passionate about this found improvements in their own life through integrating attrition into their own families and their own personalizing generalizing their own health and that's a really beautiful story because it's just so interesting how your evolution of health of you've tried different kinds of scope of diets them them yourself and have tried absolutely so i have to say i i used to have a used to love steak it was my favorite meal you know i used to not eat those kinds of phase in so i try not to come at this with an evangelistic tone but raven i've been told i really really have the that's so it's actually so valuable actually that something i'm majorly lacking actually because so i became the cherian and then vegan like i stopped eating we need is like maybe eighteen and then became begin my early twenties so i like never liked meat so i do lack i saw that i like incredibly empathetic and i truly believe like everyone's on their own journey and i respect where everyone is with food and nutrition so personal but i do lack the like understanding understanding of like you know oh don't you just mistake because i never i never liked it actually the funniest example ever is that recently there was a vegan deep ball oh and i was eating it and i actually almost threw up because i have a fight because i thought it was me everyone around you was like how delusional are you you've who need not me but like even the kind of like texture consistency like it just makes me sick and what's so important to recognize that you you know people who who did really like animal products you know it it actually gives you a level of understanding with your patients that it's not easy for everyone to drop it in a day i actually she think that adds a level of compassion and empathy to your practice that so important oh thank you done you know i do i do become a base from eleven to standing funding and and people sometimes look at me a bit funny and sale it's all right for you you know you probably never even liked it and sometimes say actually no it used to be my favorite thing i used to always order a burger or a steak and what i have to do is i have to align myself with the information available and then when side thunder unrealized the health benefits then of course i allowed an appreciation of the other benefits to come into my consciousness especially received the environmental and animal compression size it it is a win win but yeah i i am to to really help people guess it from their own health and what they can achieve so beautiful i think your your your empathy and compassion it comes through if you will we'll talk about where everyone can find you and social media leader but you can definitely definitely definitely must follow dr newman actually just tell them right now during episode okay okay a few insists so you can find me on instagram you can find me on instagram at plant power doctor so that's my instagram handle and you can look at my website jimmy newman dot com and the the reason why i say that is because gemma went one thing i love about you the me that you and i and a lot of other plant based actress sharon common is this empathy i think that understanding that all of our patients don't have to go one hundred percent but just the more plant predominant implant forward is important meant it opens up the realm of health and wellness to more people it's more inclusive acid- than it is exclusive and i think that your social media really reflects that it just reflects that this is a journey for everyone and we're just here to support people on this journey so i think you're positively he is just really shines through so every make sure hawes s right now and go to your instagram up and follow dr what she shares so you up i wanna talk all about women's health because i get questions all the time about women's health and i had natalie crawford who's in OBGYN infertility specialists on for the episode she's brilliant and wonderful and we can only hit on so much and so i've so many leftover questions to talk to you about as you are a primary care provider and you're a female physician and you love women's health i am so excited to talk to you about a different ways that you've incorporated some integrated medicine plant based nutrition into your practice to help with different issues and women's health so starting with one of the most common questions i've received starting with even just premenstrual pain and menstrual cramps something that it seems like for some people is not much of an issue but for others it's really really really debilitating there are some different tricks of the trade that people can go about this naturally likes i'd love for you to that of course i do see a lot of women with period issues and sometimes it can be really hard to manage and and it depends on the person's always awesome there have been the different methods that they're looking at but what's amazing is that there are certainly some natural remedies that can be potentially henchi as effective as the drugs that we would usually tend to to help with period pains so for example i do love turmeric it's as an incredible spice and there was a study to show that the kirkman has an incredible ability to reduce premium pains it also increases media enough levels in the bloodstream membrane your traffic factor which is a protein that is known to help with new on survival and growth and what's incredible is that it also is linked to reducing zinc period pain that was a randomized controlled trial and what they did was they got women to take kirkman supplementation three cycles vest as a placebo supplement i'm what they found was that in the women who took the cu-cuban supplement there was a significant improvement in mood in physical symptoms and of course in that BGN f- levels does and it didn't require very much dish acquired a couple of capsules daily from seven days before their period and that's something that could be hugely effective so just a really basic thing you know you might know it's quite easy just to try to reach for the painkillers and that can be the the stan thing but if you're caught something that's not true that you can use which is effective then why not use it that's amazing especially because it's so easy when you're young you know when you're woman in your twenties and thirties and you have crabs it's so so easy to just like grab for a ton of advil because had a works but it's at the same time it's like to think that there is an alternative method out there that has this anti-inflammatory in pain reducing without you know the side effects of medication even over the counter medications mazing so that's that's a great tip well ginger you mentioned over the counter medication so ginger there was a study on ginger and they got three different cohorts of women ebb and they gave one third of the cashews of ginger powder at two hundred and fifty milligram dose four times a day for three days from from the first day of their periods and they gave a second one mefin casted two hundred fifty milligrams which as you know is a strong anti inflammatory painkiller yeah those and they gave the four hundred milligrams of ibuprofen in the third cohort again i think that was three times daily so all given quivalent dosages and what they discussed no it is a lot different graves and what they discovered was that they were all equally

Because with me I have guessed Joe House House and he is in author animator. draftsman illustrator set designer art director production designer writer and director.

I mentioned the books I mean the movies in and of course jaws and then there's a book out called enjoys Joel designed ause. Yes I want to yeah anyway. I could start with that and and and anybody will just interested in the movie movie. It's a good it's good explanation. How a movie develops not our it's directed or acted but how oh you start from sketches storyboards. Now you get technical people and you build a shark and so forth so to start off with and that's available on on Joe Algae Dot Com storyboards but if we want to go way back John Salvi history was a big one and talk about that later but if we wanted to start at the beginning I would say you know when I was a kid. I was always interested in art. I always drew from the time I was Oh fourth grade wait. I drew all the all the doors and then the teacher put them up on the wall. You know they're they still white. Seventy works. Yes you know but Becca the thing that really started. An interesting thing happened to me this week. I got a call email from the art directors guild and every year the last twenty five years they've had an awards awards show where they they give out for best production design or the movie best art direction of a television station are you shouldn't attention but they also put out every one a year a lifetime achievement award for your work over your lifetime and I am very fortunate said they're gonNa give that to me this year so chills. I made it. was I mean they. I've got I've got the The People here were who have gotten it. like Sir Kenneth Adams Ken Adams all bond movies and you know there. There's the part you know Richard Silbert Bert Dean of the Godfather movies and it just goes on these these great designers Tony Walton and and now I'm sort of shocked that I'm going to be put in that category and it it's interesting because you know basically I've been retired for twenty years so you think about the past it just happened and and do these shows and I sell the book and I saw Mike like drawings from jaws and stuff but I was shocked and and so I it's it's sort of a real compliment but but it it is think about you know the beginning how it all started and I can give you that story if you're interested yes and congratulations. I'm so excited for you. I want to hear how this started for you. Well you know what I was in high school. I remember I grew up in a little town Hayward California which is sort of in the bay area. east of Oklahoma's small town they had one theater and I remember I probably thirteen fourteen years old and what down to with our neighbor neighbor girl Shirley we walked out to the theater probably early evening and we saw American in Paris and I was just elated by the movie and came back here dancing in the street and then as I researched I found out with they never made the movie in Paris. The whole movie was made on the back lot at it. MGM and in the sound stages and I discovered that cedric impressive aims were the art directors and I thought Oh my gosh what what are they. How do they do that. You know who you know. How do I get there. That's what I WANNA do and and so that's sort of the start of the the whole process awesome of learning. How do I get into the movie business. How do I become a an art director set designer or whatever the route was that you had to take and so eventually I I did a year of San Jose State and majored in architecture it and might have been drama because I was yes interested in drama and I I used to direct to a show at in high school seniors strap aganst and stuff so anyway and then I kept thinking as I drove to the school. There was a sign that said Los Angeles and I said I gotTa make that turn someday and go down to Los Angeles and get in the movie business and eventually I was still younger graduated high school. I was seventeen. I made the turn down. I found got an art school called Stewart which they they had classes in motion picture designed so that's what happened I I studied architecture and illustration and and that was the beginning so but but I didn't my summer job at Walt Disney. He's I thought it'd be a summer job. 'cause I knew somebody that worked there and it was a friend of mine's. It's wife's father well He. He did the hiring and he said we'll bring your portfolio or I don't think I'm ready. I was only just just turned nineteen I think and he should bring anyway. I go there with for as well you. You're too late for training program the job Mickey Mouse. It's so specialist I special effects you know and it was just unbelievable this. I got in this room and there was a aboard with light on it and and the lady said you just flip the pages drawn between I said okay okay. I could do that anyway. that long story short she had to leave she was working for. Dry Carlisle who is assisting Josh Better who is Zeki animator he did night in mountain and he did fire in Bambi he was working on a picture for MGM Forbidden Planet and they were drawing this Ed and through circumstances you know generally takes three or four years to become an assistant animator say do. I have to go to the hospital. I add up assistant this guy after two months known for for bidding planet then and yeah so I met Disney hit I'm doing sleeping beauty and I just have to tell you this and then we'll move on and I'm I'm designing there. What are the ferries are holding holding a cooking okay and this guy reaches over me corrects the joining so no cookie should and it's Walt Disney and he used to come and walk around correct correct joins so you all you call them walk. You just call Mister Disney so I said thank. You Walt Anyway that was my beginning in the movie industry and it was it was a long time ago so this is incredible now you also went to USC to study thaddeus. Well did it you why while I was at A- at Disney taking classes at SC in motion picture affects and it in various 'cause I was still going to school at night right and when I could squeeze it on the weekends just yards and then I started taking classes in motion picture department at USC but I I really wanted to to get into action so after a couple of years of Disney a friend of mine that I had gone to college with he had directed a play in college and how was he was a senior and I was a freshman he was in the service he came back and we were rooming together and he started directing at this little theater Hollywood house and so I started designing the sets for the playhouse the build up a portfolio of illustrations and drafting and then I wonder around and I got my first job as a as a a second partner and you start off as a junior and you're the last to be hired I to be fired because there's all these all there was like five or six major studios. MGM Paramount Warner Brothers Tetra and he you could be a big picture like I was at mgm when they're doing the on the bounty any and I went there and there was drawing details of boats and stuff then that would finish and you go to Fox and do something so you get knocked around. I was born brothers withdrawing run on my fair lady and stuff so you get an experience and then eventually you become a senior set designer uni- universal and worked on his bad bad world for months and months and so that becomes your home and you become sort of a staff and it's not that way anymore. They're all that broke up in the seventies how it used to be you know and then. I was fortunate fortunate to Become Assistant Director and never forget this because I was working with this art director Franken go who really helped me tremendously how how to think about designing we working on a picture called torn curtain with Alfred Hitchcock. I remember hitchcock. The production designer art director away so place in his secretary. Peggy called me and said Mr Koch see you and I said really really be you know 'cause either you call hitch. Mr Hiscock dot hit. You know he's pretty well established. You know he's Yester- they didn't get any bigger at that time so he calls me his office and he says Joey says I want you to build these stairs. Mr Newman runs down the stairs and Mr Witbank would do the match when he comes over to the registration desk leaves and I said Okay it's how the other side of this after I built it. No you just build what I tell you you 'cause. He never wanted to waste money. He just just build what I'm going to need. Allies directors that what everything well no 'cause hitch used to be an art director so he would plan his shots so that we would just build what we would see. You know okay that that was quite different. There's only a few directors that I worked with that. Were that way. Most of them want build me everything and then. I'll just start what I'm GONNA shoot. You know okay okay so the pre planning was to do storyboards to do layouts and then he could. He knew what he wanted. another director. I worked with was similar to that was John Carpenter. I did escape from New York with John and he was very cost conscious because he did very very low budget your pictures but in any case as it moves on to working with Hitchcock and working I was an assistant then I became a afford to after and what happened at that time universal was bought by review review which was a television studio and Wasserman was the president and he came into universal and they started taking over universal so a Lotta television now at universal and there were.

There are a lot of different things that amazon uses to keep us connected to it. I'm a funny situation and that i pay the one nineteen year for amazon because their series of shows that my family lying loves to watch that are only on the prime instant video service so i'm looking at it as like a ten dollar a month video subscription we order order very few items from amazon prime and so in my case when nobody's really interested in those prime video shows does anymore we're done because there's nothing else that would hold us there but everybody situation's a little different so it clark dot com com.

New Trump family detention rule faces legal challenges
"This week the trump administration unveiled a new regulation that would allow for the indefinite detention of migrant families crossing the border if approved the rule would eliminate a key part of a nineteen ninety seven court settlement that limits the detention of unaccompanied minors to twenty days in federal custody administration officials argue the new rule is necessary to deter mass migration at the border but it's likely to face legal challenges from immigration advocates such as the A. C. L. U. which denounced the move is quote yet another cruel attack on children joining me now to discuss this is university of San Francisco law professor bill on heating and takes you with the immigration editor Taiki interests welcome to both of you so professor hang the new rule it published today what happens next a federal judge has to approve it what's the process no threat so legal papers are being filed as we speak actually challenging the new proposed regulation and the government will respond and judged Dolly G. the the federal judge overseeing the floors case will hear arguments very soon and make a decision on whether or not the regulations are consistent with the floor settlement agreement anti key for people who don't know there is a key court settlement from nineteen ninety seven it's in play here it established this twenty day limit on detaining migrant children can you explain that yeah absolutely so back in the Clinton administration there was this legal settlement that basically said children are vulnerable they're not the same as adults in immigration custody they need to be cared for with sort of child welfare standards in mind so so the settlement favors release of children as quickly as possible keeping them in the least restrictive setting possible and in a facility that's license for child care by the state and it also gave oversight to the plaintiff's attorneys representing the kids to be able to go in and monitor and make sure that conditions were okay so then under the Obama administration or a lot more families coming and they set up these family detention centers that ice immigration and customs enforcement was running and judge she said those are not license for child care that's not an appropriate place for kids it's more of a jail like sending and the government so we need at least twenty days probably to get these kids placed in a proper facility or get them released and she said in the ninth circuit court of appeals a firm to that okay twenty days it would be acceptable if you're moving with you know due diligence and in good faith to put them in a more appropriate situation so that's where that twenty day thing came from in professor hitting what with the elimination of this twenty day limit lead to it will lead to the possibility honestly of indefinite detention because that's like he was saying they can release they they can turn these families over in theory to a state licensed facility but that was the problem that the federal government had there are no state licensed facilities for family detention male children who are alone unaccompanied children they do get turned over to state licensed facilities but not families so that's why the twenty days constricted the government they actually had to release force and they've been releasing many of these families with ankle monitors for example but now the government is proposing that they want to keep them longer because they presumably need more time to take care of of resettlement but the trump administration has admitted that really this is about the turns they want to send a message to migrants that you shouldn't come here because you may end up being in custody for a long time and I want to ask you about that in a second but I wanna dance take you first do you think that these detention centers as they are established now are equipped to Alves families a lot of families for a long time well they're they're about three of these facilities the two biggest ones are in Texas I think they can hold about three thousand people altogether three thousand beds for parents and kids I think I think if they're going to do this indefinite thing they would need more space and you know child advocates say that the detaining children even if their with their parents is is harmful for kids so as professor he said there's yeah I mean the tension isn't required the trump administration says they want to to hold people while their asylum proceedings go forward but those cases can take years and the courts are very backlog so let's get back to this issue of trying to send a message I heard a White House spokesperson basically saying the florist settlement incentivized immigration a family or a family size group shows up at the border knows that they will be detained for twenty days four days and then basically released into the country to await trial there in it's all good their journey has all been worth it is this what you have seen actually you're not and if that were true I wouldn't feel so bad about what's going on but listen at the clinic that we have a diverse census we have over three hundred cases and half of those are family units I went to Honduras in March and spoke with families and we're thinking of leaving and I volunteered at the border in Tijuana and these folks are fleeing because of desperate circumstances they're not coming to visit Disneyland they're fleeing violence Jane cartel and in many cases domestic violence and so in my experience these folks are not coming just for a walk in the park Congress approved four point six billion dollars in emergency humanitarian aid if you're marked funds to improve conditions in immigration detention facilities based in part on what professor hating other immigration attorneys reported seeing at a facility that house to migrant kids mothers and babies Tychy along with removing the limit on detaining migrant families what with this new rule affect the conditions at the facilities where migrant families are being held well I think one of the other big changes that that would happen if the new rule goes into effect in Florida settlement goes away then the oversight that these plaintiffs attorneys on behalf of the children have and that the the federal judge has to make sure that conditions are up to par and are appropriate for kids that oversight goes away the lawyers like professor hang have been able to go inside the facilities and talk to children and and that wouldn't exist anymore and so also without the the requirement that the facilities be licensed for child care by a state like the California you know health and Human Services folks then if the federal government doing its own licensing and there are some concerns that that there's not as much independent oversight of conditions immigration stopping it essentially has been V. banner don't give ground issue for the trump administration do you professor hang see any day light for a compromise a conversation that leads to president trump Democrats immigrant advocates coming together and making some sort of compromise that ratchets down the rhetoric that we hear so often about immigration I wish I could be more hopeful I I in my opinion this is really about trump trying to play to his base he doesn't have to be labeling these migrants and national security risks he actually could be doing what was happening prior to twenty fourteen I'm I'm saying this and in part criticism of president Obama's while the it's become a pejorative term but catcher release worked people were arrested they were taken into detention but they were process very quickly and sent along the way because I snows were folks are going to have names addresses of relatives and there's a very high appearance rates of people were not upstanding and until we recognize the humanitarian nature of really wife people are leaving I don't think that there's going to be room for for negotiation and less that kind of rhetoric is ratcheted down university of San Francisco law professor bill on heating and KQED immigration editor Taiki Hendricks thanks both of you for joining us here thank

Get it Done Now
"Well for the last couple of years we've told people they could take time off during the holidays. But if they're gonna work they need to come in the office. And even though they came in the office. It was you know, really kind of slow and half days. And so this past year in two thousand eighteen we try something new we implemented a new policy, which effectively shut down the office, unless you're on PTO paid time off we shut down the office, you were still working, but you didn't have to come into office. So between Christmas and New Year's there was really no one in here. Every once in a while someone will drop him because they forgot something that seemed to be here for minute or two operations went on. They just weren't here in the office. They worked from home, and it was really nice, and I did the same thing and. It was great. It was very effective if a client call it or we had to get something done, and we still gotta done. We just didn't have to commute. Well, New Year's Eve as always for a business day was very very slow, but I actually decided to come in. And so I came from Alf four or five hours, and I was doing the final preparations for this podcast. We were going to be launching on January second, and I wanted to make sure that we had a backlog if episodes, and I was in here all by myself on New Year's Eve for a couple of hours during the day, and it was super effective. So it's really nice when I can come into the office, actually and get a lot of work done. And there aren't people here. The phone's not ringing. There's not a lot of distractions, and you could just get down and focus on work as a matter of fact, right now when I'm recording this it's six fifty on a Friday night. And I'm doing it for that. Same exact reason I decided there's nobody here there. Nothing going on. I can totally focus, and I can pump out a couple of these episodes and get them recorded and build a little bit backlog. So that I don't have to stress out in three or four or five days when someone's telling me that we're getting low on episodes. I can get it done and get out of the way. And then when I come in Monday through Friday during normal business hours on I'll have to worry about this. Or some other thing that I'll take care of tonight because it's just done whenever you get an opportunity to get something done early get it done. And that's actually one of our core values which is urgency. Always have urgency of what you do even if it's the holidays, even if your offices shut down if you wanna get ahead in business and life take care of this things. Now, don't wait until the next time that the offices open to get your work done. Just get it done. Now. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your
Walmart to pilot Alphabot robotics for grocery pickup
"Has been hit hard by commerce, but one area that's remained resilient to change is the grocery industry. WalMart is continuing to invest in technology to improve the overall experience, even if delivery isn't in the cards. WalMart is injecting some cutting edge technology into the back room of one of its supercenters in partnership with startup alert innovation. WalMart is prepping a first of its kind automation system that will help associates gather and package online grocery orders. The alphabet system is currently being installed at a supercenter in Salem, New Hampshire as part of the stores renovation that will also include a twenty thousand square foot expansion. The new area will house alphabet and serve as a dedicated grocery pickup point, complete with drive thru lanes for customers. WalMart says, the vast majority of grocery items will be fulfilled through the Alf. Abbott system and delivered to associates at one of four pickup stations. Associates will then pick a symbol in deliver orders to customers with alphabet handling more mundane repeatable tasks. Workers will have more time to focus on a sitting in store shoppers. They'll still be responsible for handpicking produce and other fresh items, though alphabet is far from WalMart's first foray into technology and robotics. The big box retailer is actively expanding itself service pickup towers to more than five hundred stores across the country, and it's trialing robot that scans store shelves for out of stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels. Alphabet is expected to be up and running. By the end of the year
The Decentralized Cloud Computing Blockchain Network
"To focus on Asia. So late last week, I'm speaking with the guys at Neo about the impact of blockchain on Asian markets. And today I want to speak to the co founder of elf, which is the Asia based cloud computing block shirt. Network is focusing on becoming a global company. Now is a smart contract platform that will allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology, and he's aiming to transform those horrendous complex business operations. That previous generations just accepted and do something about it in our immediate future. But in no familiar rambling on so book and hold until it as I beam your ears all the way to Singapore. So we can speak with Xueliang Chen the co, founder of elf. So massive, warm, welcome to the shows ruling. Can you tell the listeners a Labatt who you are and what you do? Hello? Everyone. My name is Chen. Julie. Sandy Koufax. CEO of Alf. Yes. Prior to that, I was a strategy comes out multinationals and governments of different topics. And yet slowly I moved into technology 'cause I have a generic background. That's where my passion is started with looking into various projects at in blockchain industry. Then finally met the right partner to foam to start out together. Now you all the co, founder of the issue based cloud computing block chain network, a mind to standing ease these kind of a small contract platform that would allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology and also will transform complex business operations in the future. But can you tell. Exactly what it is and also what makes you guys unique from all the other solutions out there in the similar space without getting into the details. So what else is is we're in you up blockchain system and what we're providing is a high performance sister so that a we use a monkey Chint structure. Each smart contracts, we will have their own side chain so that they do not interfere with each other. And also we enable the notes to row now a cluster of computers, so that makes execution much faster and announced more complicated applications to run on top of that. So EMS show. We're really trying to make a business Ronnie on Shing wing facing and also more customizable in terms of what a we are unique is that where the first one actually enable the notes up to rob last of computers said this makes it much. Easier to scale up in terms of our computational capability at those are storage capability. And also the weight Howie introduced. A mounting structure of Jennifer is a diversity of ecosystem in how to to open up many possibilities. Held business want to run on blotch now don't if it's more full my life in IT. But before we talk about any solution, I always want to understand the exact problem before even thinking about, I think technology into the mix. So can you help listeners visualize the three problems that you see across the digital landscape, which are performance resources and segregation and also the lack of governance. So if you're looks back the evolution of blockchain. So I started as wind use case. Basically, it's bitcoin as a cross-border P2P payments eastern Mobutu towards a storage of battery right now. So that is basically just why use case then here comes the invention of smart contracts. So this. Opens up many more possibilities basically to allow a contracts to execute it your trust myths way. Yes. So you know, once the door has opened up, he basically enables us to serve meetings of customers from a business point of you ever done this list to a a our limitation which is on the performance side. So if you really believe that log chain is Gallup serve businesses for the mass adoption. We need a high performance in high speed to accommodate that.
