‘Hamilton’ Gets Past Race by Imagining Founding Fathers With Black and Brown Faces
"I have seen hamilton live and i saw the movie and it's a predominantly black and people of color kosters actually only one white person in the production. I was king. George and is that accurate lived experience of alexander hamilton. Obviously not alexander. Hamilton was a white person who i believe owned slaves. So at a certain point. I think there's gotta be consumed by the way. Hamilton is one of the greatest things i've ever seen in my entire life. It's beautiful i cried. I highly suggest everyone watches it. And i think this this idea that everything has to be like perfect in these boxes. And like you said idris. Elba somehow wasn't authentic. Because he wasn't eating jamaican food again. I haven't seen the show I think it's more important to have Cast of diversity than the story line. And like i said i would just love to hear this woman's take on things like hamilton and bridgier ten. Which aren't obviously historically accurate. They're actors so. I actually found this kind of confusing. Let me say this very quickly actor should be able to go in and do whatever part they feel. They're they're good enough to do. You can't always live the experience your visual puts out in people's minds now you know i watch friends. I didn't see any black people on the streets. I didn't see any black friends. I mean we were there. Asian people there all. Latino people are there so you know you have to now that one of the things you might want to look for is environmentally. If people walking down the street do you see people that live in the neighborhood or would be on the street in the country. I just i feel like you. You can't say this director this this writers really slide so that didn't write him as a black my roadmaster man you know and everything that comes from that is up to the actors and the directors and the things that come from that and you. Can't you have to talk to people who are casting and people who are writing because if you ride it actors can do it

You've got life messages in this movie for everybody. Pg what had happened is a good friend of mine says faludi. Who wrote that book stiffed. Which a couple years ago is about the diminishing and kind of like deluding of the american male in the workforce and after you know this planned obsolescence almost for world war two and every generation. It seems to get harder and harder for a man to express himself and we seem to be slowly being moved on this conveyor belt out before we're ready to be moved out and it was kind of a wanted rocky showed that he still has he says has some stuff in the basement. He has a flame in his heart and i think a lot of the american male feels that way but society goes nassau. You've had your you know you're up at bat and it's time to move on and go. Well maybe you should move on when you're ready to move on if you wouldn't take the humiliation of sticking your head above the crowd maybe it's you know it's pleasure will be worth the pain.

Adii Pienaar on How to Build a Business That Profits Your Life
"Haberman apr. And i've built and sold to sort of businesses and building my next one now and i've also had just published a new book called life ability. The new measure of entrepreneurial success in one hundred dollar. Nba listen today. I'd like to teach you how to build a business that is not only financially profitable but more importantly life profitable as well. I'll be talking about how we should rethink work. Life balance means how. It's risky to take the short term pain long-term gain approach to building a business how to realize your business yourself and the next steps to take to start to create more life prophets today before i get into that. Let me share a bit of my personal journey and how i came to define this idea of life ability. I started my first business with teams and we commerce straight out of university. Even before that i was constantly working on business ideas in favor of just being a student for example and once i exited commerce years later becoming a millionaire in the process. I was supposed to take a break sabbatical sorts. But i got stuck into next. President is pretty much immunity. Because i needed to prove that. I was not a one hit wonder. I winced the building my second business believing that it should be easier. I some capital. I had experience. I had a network. I had new skills. But two years in things started unraveling both in my personal life and in business and pretty soon. I almost lost all of the things that were most dear to me. I realized that. I've been on. This accelerated path my own little rat race that cause so much. Collateral damage along the way regardless of the business financial success that i achieved. It was in that moment that i realized that i need a better way of building. My business and life going forward the philosopher henry david. Thoreau showed a powerful idea and his book walden. That helped me find this new path and ultimately coin the term life of liberty. He says the cost of a thing is the amount of what i will call life which is required to be changed for it immediately or in the long run. I'll just repeat that for a second. The cost of a thing is the amount of what i will call life which required to be exchanged for it immediately or in the long run when we do anything in life. The thing we're paying with is our life. It's our time our attention and all of that is finite and when we as entrepreneurs bowl businesses we pay expenses. Not just with money but with a part of our life and or anything like me you know how demanding a business can be at times. And this whole idea was so counterintuitive to the things that i actually valued at business my family for example represents my highest value. But i was so often just not present with them because my businesses would the monning so much of me and that's what life profitability aims to change. Shift the perspective to growing business that serves you and serves your life every single day as well building a business that generates life. Prophets instead of only accumulating life costs. So let's get into a few ways in which you can start building a business with a you're starting from scratch or you're tweaking existing business to be more profitable. My recommendation is to rethink this whole idea of work life balance. This is a commonly held goal for many people and wall. Street is not a bad goal per se. I do you think it's flawed. The problem with idea that work in life can keep each other imbalance. Is that it proposes. That work in life are two separate independent things. We all know that a bad day at work spills over into our home life easily. Just as an argument with your spouse in the morning influences your mindset throughout the workday to start moving towards greater life ability. We need to acknowledge that work is merely a part of life so a new pursuit of balance should mean that rather hold our work our businesses and balance with all the other things that are important to us whether it's families lovers friends hobbies passions projects. Or maybe just health just like you would balance an investment portfolio. So should you balance your life portfolio that should include all bits of those things that are important to you and your work and business will just be one of the stocks or one of those bits in this personalized life portfolio. The second idea. i'd like to share with. You is a bit of caution. As journey ambitious individuals were conditioned with this notion that short-term compromise and sacrifice if actually leads to long term gain and reward that kind of proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We tell ourselves that once. I just make that extra one hundred thousand dollars or i am able to afford. Those two critical hires team. I'll take the time off to go in that family holiday or finally take up those lessons for which i've paid ages ago. The whiskey run in sequencing major life events like that is at the outcome the actual reward but is never that guaranteed and specially don't know how much time we need or have to get to that outcome in his book when breath becomes their acclaimed neurosurgeon. Paul right my life had been building potential potential. That would now go and realized. I plan to do so much and i'd come so close c. Pull it always wanted to write a book and have children but delayed those things as he was ambitiously bullying his professional career. He eventually only started writing his book after he was diagnosed with lung cancer when he was thirty six and his only daughter was only eight months old when he tragedy died the following year his wife ultimately had to write the loss chapter of his book before it was published life. Profitable business means that the business empowers you to integrate the most important things in your life with a regular cadence. It means taking that trip reading that book or spending time on the passion project sooner rather than later the next scenario like to do is to ask you to just take a momentary pause regardless of where you're at in your journey maybe you've been running business for ten years or this your third attempt after two previous failures or maybe he just had the idea to start your business loss week and on l. Planning its launch before you can take the next steps of and pursue greater life liberty. It's important to be aware of universal truth. As you take these next steps you will be the only common denominator on your journey. All other things can change. The business ordered idea with the product and change team members. Come and go. divorce happens right and families can change. You can move to the other side of the world. Make new friends but our goal is of any of those changes. You will still be there. You will be the one on this junior taking so in this momentary pause. I'd ask you to think about who you really are. What are those things that truly really matters and one of the goals hopes and dreams that you have in this moment for your future if you can't reconcile those things in this very moment and at least find partial clarity no amount of next steps can fix that. Discontent or incongruence. Whatever your next look like. They need to be untrue. Alignment of who you really are. Yes you will change and evolve to as you learn and continue on your journey but merely things that make you unique to you in this moment will not change materially life. Prophets will flow from your ability to honor these things as you take your next
You are doomed if you want to build a gaming computer right now
"If you're trying to build a high end gaming rig you're doomed right now. is you can't buy gp the five thousand series amd cpu's were available for like at launch day and haven't shown up again three thousand series. Gp's all over the map. Amd six thousand series gpu sold out Within a heartbeat at felt like. I'm sure it wasn't quite that fast. Other stuff has been back and forth Ton of televisions available projectors are available. You know set. Top boxes are available. apr's have been in and out. So maybe ours. That i expected to be out of stock until a biscuit before christmas are actually now in stock on us by amazon You know other things not so available Couplings like remind everybody going into black. Friday is especially if you shop on an amazon Camel camel camel. Dot com is incredibly useful. Because sometimes prices go up before Right before black friday. So there is a discount From a price that was actually higher than the normal sales price for the normal. It's or in some cases The really crazy ones are some vendors will actually create an entirely new product skew on amazon. So that there is no older price data so the earlier you check the more likely to have accurate pricing information for something you're looking for and if you are if you are in that desperate hunt per cpu a gpu or console from You know microsoft or sony Now in stock dot net is one way to try and track what's available and where it's available If you're trying to console christmas i have no idea what your likelihood is but it feels like if you find one you should buy it I don't want to encourage anybody to go out there and and pay the the the people on ebay that are charging two or three times. What it should cost But if if christmas is going to be ruined if there's not a console i think it's going to be really tough holiday shopping season for you. On the flip side in terms dot net to know win stock dot net. It's yeah it's tough and the cpu the pc stuff. I we were talking about this earlier. Daytime it's like you know and video always you know they're like you know cheapie us and then they always sell out and there's always this kinda mad dash but this is the first time i really remember nvidia being likes you stock. Will we have a limited supply of of and bbn like wait a minute. Are they getting honest. Or they basically have like eight and once those eight or sold out You're done but in twenty twenty a little bit of both right. Yeah yeah it could be. I mean if you're building a sort of a mid range gaming. Pc inexpensive gaming pc you want to build a you know a plex server. There's ton of hardware out there that's fantastic and is reasonably priced. It's just if you want to high end gaming. Gpu or cpu. It's really really tough. If you want consoles the new the new consoles from from mark shopping sony. it's really really tough Not so bad. But i would definitely definitely definitely shop early and ship early because the way have been going. This year inventories kind of been all over. The map and shipping has been kind of all over the map
Movie Theater Stocks Have Two Problems
"Movie Theater Stocks Are Getting hammered today a sinner world group, which is the second largest theater chain in the world. Announced it is closing its theaters in the US and in the UK here in the US, it's regal cinemas in the UK. It's a world. So all told we're talking about more than six, hundred, fifty theaters roughly forty, five thousand employees who are going to be out of a job and the stock is down. Forty percent and. In sympathy I guess you could say shares of AMC, which is the largest movie theater chain. Down ten percents, cinemark down fifteen percent. We've seen sort of this drip drip drip of tentpole movies having their release date pushback. The latest James Bond movie which was supposed to come out this past April got pushed. November, and over the weekend was announced, it's getting pushed him next April and it's among other things Jason It is a reminder. Of how those big action tentpole movies Drive this business. Oh yeah, and I mean it's not just the theaters that are really feeling the pain today to write its. Properties which is A read that focuses on the entertainment arena in in general, but they have a lot of exposure to to movie theaters and in certainly a APR's feeling a little bit of that painted as well. Given given what we know. Is playing out in the movie theaters and you know when you look at cinema world, I mean. Into kind of the first thing. The first thing that made me think of it's kind of like kind of like Pluto, and Pluto was downgraded from planetary status like sin world is more like a Dwarf Planet. Now, like this isn't this isn't a world anymore this is really a company that's just struggling to figure out how to survive at this point because they've got to problems. They've. Got, two really big problems they got a supply problem and the demand problem and like noted with with the the actual releases having the content to get in those theaters. That's one problem. But then the other problem, obviously, the health concerns regarding the pandemic people just don't want to go sit in movie theater like like we used to and and so all of this is playing out. On these theaters big and small, and and when you you look at the cinema world's financials I mean they are facing the same problems as everyone else missing revenue falling off a cliff. They've got a slug of debt on the balance sheet eight and a half billion dollars and a half of that lease liabilities. But that speaks to the to the weight that that that those theaters can conserve right that drag that they can serve when when they're not being used in a theater is just like a restaurant is just like a retail store they're all of these high fixed costs in keeping those theatres open paying for those leases keeping them staffed and open. In. So you need traffic to go through them the more traffic that goes through the more profitable they become and that's great and good times. But in bad times as we're seeing now, just profitability just vanishes in I think the trouble. The. Trouble that they're facing. Is that you know when you start looking forward and try to figure out exactly how people are going to be feeling about going to the movie theater when all of this stuff passes over, I mean when when we finally turned the corner and in the concerns For Health aren't aren't the same as the are today are people. GonNa want to go back to the movie theaters like they did before I mean some will no doubt. But for all of the time that passes while we're not going to those movie theaters, all of the time that those theaters are suffering other forms of entertainment are are gaining right other. Forms of entertainment are becoming more and more an option, a nice substitute for folks whatever that may be You know all the way down to new ways of of catching movies, and so we're seeing we're seeing distributors figuring out new ways to get movies out there. We're seeing consumers figuring out new ways to actually watch movies and all of a sudden. A year from now and I mentioned this on on twitter earlier today all of a sudden you really have to be of that good enough risk in that like hey, you know what? It's not the movie theater but I'm sitting at home. I'm eating the pizza I'm watching a new movie that that's good enough for me and I'm okay with that I don't need to get my car go to a movie theater in. So all the more time that passes I think the more difficult it becomes for these theaters to really. Get back to where they once were in. Under. Unfortunately it feels like you know we're we're going to be dealing with this certainly for the rest of this year I mean granted only a couple of months left really few months left but I mean, you know going into twenty twenty one. I mean what does this look like when April or May comes around I don't know we don't know enough yet. But but when you look at central world itself I mean it's really silly United States seventy, five percent of their revenue comes from here. So what's going on here really matters to this business and right now it's just not looking good. Yeah and one of the thoughts I had when I was reading through this stuff this morning was. member. When Warren Buffett bought the Omaha World Herald. There was just sort of this sense. Like. For someone who is so rational in his investing it kind of seemed like he let nostalgia. Get the better of him and you know what he can do, whatever he wants his money although he did sell it. Earlier this year. But. It reminded me of that and I just thought I think there is a possibility where. Some, very wealthy person at some point in the next year or two just maybe not to by. AMC Holdings whole cloth but I wouldn't surprise me if someone was just like not now I love movies and I want this to survive and if it's if it's break, even that's all I care about but but other than other than. Sort of a very rich angel coming in given everything you just laid out with the business I mean. I like how you put it I mean. It's not just a demand. It's not just a supply and demand problem while I mean, Hey, listen apparently Jeffrey Katzenberg get some pretty deep pockets. I mean Chris are you thinking what I'm thinking Quigley theaters let me just rolls right off the tongue doesn't it qube theaters? Hey, it's a possibility. Anything. Positive.
Xbox Series S and X preview
"All Right Tom. You have just like dummy xbox at your house, but what is going on? You just plastic shells. He's just making videos with like should I tell you the story of week? So. They arrived on. Monday morning and like like I'm grumpy wouldn't say old berm like it and I knew phone and we get new laptop and he does know me I, know that sounds like. And and I'm like I mean a really fortunate position. But like once you've seen so much stuff once visited location. So many times he just doesn't. It's not exciting, right? So He's very me to get sight about technology but like Jane genuinely when opened up the series was like, wow, this is. Not. Excited by a brand new laptop with the latest graphics card a super fast processor and a ton of Ram Beautiful Four K. screed but you were excited by a plastic dummy box of the xbox series. And I don't know why. But it was late is is a deny it sounds really like fan boil some. It sounds like he was like Christmas I was like Oh this is so. Because I haven't seen it before. And I knew other people hadn't seen before. So is an element of that but it was also just like Michael being so small like how did how did they do this? That was my immediate thing was like how like will? It right. They haven't told me anything about it at this point. So they just sent me these damn dummy units and I was just like. BSO The dummy units arrived they respond to be I mean there was supposed to be announcing this thing next week. So there's going to be a bunch of like. Honey. Technical. In Belgrade, sessions where briefings for the press, so they give us the full information so that we'd have our goals like informative for people to read. That's great involved because like it just means that I can explain things better. readers get better pitcher and but then it leaked. So I woke up I can't even remember which day it leaked because it's just been such a week. But it leads at some point. Jews Wednesday. Up, and I was like Oh God like zoo happen, and then like that will C- kick Mike soft intellect panic mode we need to announce everything because everything's leaked. So they like just dumped the whole thing. The experts pricing everything. This is a trend because Google does this now and the thing leaks that just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That's Just did it with the wing? Yeah. Well, I mean L. L G announces every single practice makes fifty times so. Count. But it's a pattern. We might as well, just announce it. We're done I think I think with Marxist cases that I've been. Flight. Will to years. Alongside bunch of reposes will. But like I think for them, it was like they needed to explain his fingers like the thing suspending. Well, this is the experts series S. His basically a smaller more budget friendly and and let's say less performance. Experts console than the bigger experts series X, which I'm sure most people listening to this probably familiar with Bono and it's basically designed for fourteen Philippi gaming. So like that's I, mean I'd say the vast majority of Mona's out there today that people gaming on the moment. East acton on the TV's and stuff but like this is a pretty good. Sweets book fully Philippi right now, spy from the PC side and. It's like a good talk. And they basically promising a symbol of architecture and all of the next gen premiums from the series. Excellent. CPU cloud under two hundred megahertz. The thing I care about is, does it have the the fast d at the series extras? Yeah. It does but it's five hundred, twelve storage instead of one terabyte. So there are no right. There's no Dr. Discloses all digital. Is Two hundred, ninety nine buffs, which is, which is good. I think it's like that's a pretty impressive for us but this is obviously the the the drawbacks to it. No disks will do diesel prices. If Games are typically higher yields, he can't use use games I think a lot to see Sonia my soul. In some way I'd love to just say my district sorted signing just digitize as well. I think we spoke about that on the way I look at like this series s is I think he's great life. If you kid you place fort like twenty, four, seven in bed, remove ten ADP TV because you haven't spent. Two Thousand Bucks on the Keio lead for them. Surprisingly. Like. I think I. Think it's great for that sold market like having. By that for Free Hundred Bucks and they get the new CPU the new ESA stays below times and the performance overall will be like way better than expos one. Like it just depends how it compares to the to the series x I. Think like they're doing some upscaling stuff for four K. if you really want to touch, it's a four K.. By Donna, how good that's going to be. That misses the point like. Different market. But what is the market for fourteen forty game I mean When you say monitors get it but most people with fourteen forty P monitors plugging PC's into them not consoles I is fourteen forty pm out. So I think the market is really ten API. which which is the TV's. Still turn EP like I would probably imagine the forty percent Stilton apr there at the moment. And I think that goes wildly up when you look at bedrooms and like kids rooms like where you're buying a typically smaller TV and you're not gonNA get e can't even by like a smaller lighter the twenty. Shit Four. K. TV. It's just they just don't exist. Although maybe they do but like. Just don't sell volume and I think that that's the market. That's the market ICS. Definitely. Going for like the MOMS and the POPs the shopping around at Christmas and they want to get their gear console they want to get something this noon and stuff, and these things only gonNA come down in price. So to me the market for the series S is. Why definitely have to buy a playstation because I want to get those games and if Playstation maybe I'll get the best one because I don't know what's going on the cheaper one about they're going to do there. And so if I've done that I still kind of want an xbox because I'm thinking about getting this Xbox game pass thing because he all these games on it. But I don't want to have to big ass consuls my living room saw the the cheaper xbox. I'll get the cheaper xbox to play Xbox Game Pass Games, and then I'll get the more expensive PSI to be like my main console that I get like my kick ass four K. stuff on it is. So blindingly clear which one of you has a child in which one doesn't. Just putting. Very obvious. How your perspectives shifted. Like I would say game passes Tom to your point you the game passes the thing here right? Like, yeah. If this is a Fox for your second TV or your kids TV, then what you need is a cloud gaming service. They can address all the xboxes right. And if you don't have a disk, doesn't matter because all the Games on the cloud anyway and you're just moving licenses around and maybe you're going to get to to streaming games in this thing, will be able to stream the games right like. You kinda see where they're going is these are just sort of client units for an xbox service with different GPS. Yeah. Exactly. It's different. Slight different economic you a bunch of specs and people who've been tweet me thousand times a minute this week. But you can argue a bunch of stuff to the essential differences between the two is the once targeting Larry's Lucien Melissa's and TV's and the EVA's talkative. Okay. Like that. That's that's basically the basic gist of the if you were really simplifier. And I think the cheap one is really gonNA appealed to the experts getting pulse market. Like that. Is Probably the best for you and gave me right now like I. Think it's very. Apple, arcade. Lately, just added a play or that it didn't add it to base expos game policies to the almost see have to you have to pay the all of the xbox names are bad and confusing. And then there's the P. C. There's the version that you can also play it on PC, which now costs more, right yes. Let's give me ten bucks a month by feel like that's I mean if you experts came all that covers you on anyway. So feel like you just. Denies. People go for the old anyway I think. So you've got the the series as the that will call the ten ADP model because I think it's functionally what it is even yeah basically forty nine. To Ninety nine, the series x, which is the four K. high refresh rate. Refrigerator refrigerator model. Model model is four ninety nine, which is actually still very aggressive and my mind and just based on what can do and then experts expensive. The Ninja xbox Game Pass Ultimate Yep is twenty five bucks a month in. Fifteen a month. But if you pay more and then you get a box out of it to write for twenty four months, you you you pay the subsidize. It's like a phone plan. Basically you get you pay a little bit more and then you a paying down your hardware and installments and it's basic. Tech Industry only has one business model which is. And T. in two, thousand and four. Yeah. But right. But that's a killer deal right that she ended up paying less over the twenty four months than you would. If you bought them separately right when you can get either right for the Yup can get the X. which I think is four, nine, nine a month I think. Five month or twenty five, the S. I I see that I'm like I'm just GonNa. I'm just GONNA, X.. Whatever like I am going to do the dumb starbucks, which is it's three coffees Erlich whatever. AM. And that is just a brilliant move for Microsoft, right? Yeah. Basically make an expensive thing seemed cheap even as maybe in the end, it's only slightly cheaper than buying everything out right?
Technology Helps Train Police Officers
"Around the country for the past few weeks, protests have erupted over the killing of George Floyd. The arrests kindle renewed outrage over the deaths of black Americans like Brianna Taylor Eric Garner Michael Brown among many others and the mistreatment of people of Color by police. The protests have also sparked and national reckoning for many police departments. They've been trying to reduce the use of lethal force and improve accountability among other things through training. From The Wall Street Journal this is the future of everything I'm Janet Baben. Today on the show we'll consider the future of police training with virtual reality technology. What's most powerful about the are? You're able to create worlds and circumstances and experiences that you wouldn't be able to create in the real world that can help you shift your perspective, which is really different than a training. We'll speak with researchers about how the brain perceives are and whether it can address bias. Notwithstanding or conscious beliefs or conscious convictions, and we'll talk about why a future developments in Vr police training may fall short. Tell me why you shot. Shot because he was within that zone, you know I felt there was leased departments have long used actors playing and instructional videos to train officers to deal with real life scenarios, but this can be. Pricey and not very realistic. People who make and sell virtual reality say the technology can improve training. If you play video games. You're probably familiar with VR. It's been around for a while, but we asked Wall Street Journal attack video game reporter Sara Needham, in to explain virtual reality is all encompassing. It's a matter of hardware so when you put on APR headset. Everything you see up down left right turnaround. Everything is in there virtual world one hundred percent. You cannot see anything else, so you feel very immersed the main difference between VR other video simulations you can actually interact with this computer generated three D world. It's so. That Sarah says you can get sucked in and lose yourself. I experienced this myself. playing a racing game where I was sitting down very low, and we felt like a cockpit of a vehicle, and as we went around the turns, I literally felt like we were going to crash into the wall, because I wasn't driving very well, and it scared me. For Police. It's not about the thrill or fear of race track. It's about learning how to lean into the fear and still be able to deal with it calmly. If you feel like you've done something before been in a situation before. You're better at knowing how to react. You can practice your actions in these potentially life, threatening situations and hopefully resolve altercations peacefully. We'll talk more about this in just a bit. It's one of the reasons that some of the biggest law enforcement groups in the country like the Los Angeles. Police Department are turning to Vr. The LAPD has a history connected to police, misconduct and misuse force. In Nineteen ninety-one. Were caught on tape brutally beating motorist Rodney. King a black, man. The officers acquitted of criminal charges sparking riots in Los Angeles. In the early two thousands. The department was put under Federal Investigation for. Engaging in a pattern or practice of excessive force, false arrests and unreasonable searches and seizures, the government came in with what's known as a consent decree to change the culture in the LAPD. Dr. Lou Pinella joined the department in the middle of all that in two thousand five. The Rodney King incident put a laser focus on LAPD, tactics and training as well. I believe that we have continued to expand on that every year, both by how we work with our community and the training that we offer. She's the director of Police Training and education at the LAPD and she revamped its training. Process Department currently trains officers with something called a forced option simulator. It's often referred to as first generation. VR says it trains police in real life scenarios you walk into a room and one walls, completely blank and on their, we will project a scenario that an officer has to handle. Handle, it could be anything from a person in a park to a bank robbery to an office scenario, workplace violence scenario, something like that and officers will get a call, and they'll come into the room and and try to respond to what is in front of them. In the meantime, there's a instructor at the back of the room who be on a computer. Computer and as the scenario unfolding, they are able to branch in different directions, where either the officers are calming, the situation down, or it becomes more difficult to handle

Well good evening. Everyone not tax day. Every that's not tax day. It goes to tax day. Okay so this has never happened before in the history of our country tax day for as long I think since nineteen well since they adopted April fifteenth as the Tax Day. There's never it's never been postponed until this year. Yeah it's never been moved. It's always been April fifteenth. And we're talking wars. You know we're talking anything everything you can think of. The last seventy years that is that has happened but this virus did it well. I know it's amazing is necessary. Is that definitely definitely necessarily people. Need all the help they can get right now. Financially and otherwise. Yeah that's true because it's not just about filing paperwork on tax day it's about paying what you owe right. I think I probably. Oh quite a bit. But if you're getting a refund you could file whenever you want absolutely yeah. And we've encouraged our clients. They're expecting refunds. Don't wait do not wait. No no point in waiting so those are the ones I've heard from and the people who oh I have not heard from January right. Guess you guys. I got the funniest well. I shouldn't say funny cause was actually very depressing. Email today from a local massage studio here in L. A. Says Cove in nineteen update. Now is the time. We're getting so many. E mails and some of them. Amazing some of the super arbitrary from companies being like in these times of crisis. We're here to tell you that we exist and you're like what I don't need this update but this one is so strange. It says to our massage clients effective today all massage treatments will be cancelled through April fifth. This comes in recommendation from the city.

Our number one priority will be here when this passes in the meantime please be gentle with yourself and practice self care at home. Oh I love that and then immediately after it says. We are still treating chiropractic acupuncture patients. Oh good as your right. Oh and then you have symptoms of Blah Blah Blah. What the heck that makes no sense. Okay Oh it makes zero zero. We'll just keep this in mind. Guys there are people out there who are one hundred percent assured believing that this stuff is totally legitimate. Just like we think like going going physical. You know it's like it's part of their mill you that's it they believe it. Yeah but they're totally exploiting this platelet to promote themselves chiropractors. Some chiropractors are explicitly promoting themselves as a way of boosting your immune system or whatever to treat or prevent covert one thousand nine hundred. Yeah that's pathetic. That's horrible. Yeah not that any of us are surprised me. We've come to learn at. This is what they do. Well it's also just taking advantage of fear and uncertainty. That's out there. You know is basically snake oil salesmen. Do Right. Oh Yeah I'm actually seeing you know. We talked about this. Sometimes that in order to prep for new or in order for me to share kind of like I try to curate different news stories on my twitter feed. I'll go through feed reader every week and it's just been all cova one thousand nine. That's like you know it's hard to find a story. That's not covert related. So I get really excited when I see them but the cool thing is. I'm starting more and more to see at some of the outlets that I really like. People writing about the history of snake oils the history of harmful practices during times of fear and pandemics. And it's really cool that a lot of scientists story ends or digging up some of the things they saw during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic or when Ebola. I came on the scene and how people were responding to them and writing about that so that we can learn from them. There's some really cool news articles out there. Yeah I mean. Obviously we're using the opportunity to get our message out as well but our messages. Listen to the experts. Yes it's early days. Still you can say novel Corona Virus But even pouching she and others are saying yeah. We're we're two weeks behind reality by the time we sort of get a handle on. What's happening that information's two-weeks-old so we're always playing catch up in a fast moving pandemic and people have gone back and said look there. Statements are changing. Of course they're changing very dynamic lurid situation. They're they're giving show your best information. They can at the time with caveats with the unknowns. You know it's as if it is if like in the middle of my dissertation. My My dissertation chair expected me to stop in the middle of Data Collection. And Give a press conference about all of my find. It like that's happening right now. We only just now collecting the data. We have not had time to analyze it. We're not at the end of the thing yet to be able to say with any certainty that this is how things are over such an impatient society up very much so the thing that drives me insane. Are The people who are critical on? I don't WanNa say guestimations but you know they're critical on projections. As an example. We take the best information we have. We use the the best methodology that we have to try and figure out what the future holds for things that are inherently very chaotic and they turned those types of predictions into they got it wrong and got well. Well we're trying to do. We're trying to make the best damn guesses and projections that we can. That's all that we have other thing is i. I hate it when you make a probabilistic statement you could say like it's ninety percent likely a is going to happen right and ten percent that not a will happen right and then he doesn't tap into you were wrong no are you said it was. It was one hundred percent ninety percent which means ten percent of the time. It's not going to be a right you have to look at the actual statistics say if those how accurate those and be where people who speak in absolutes anyways that's red flag thank you. Yeah that they're trying to sell you something. I think the part. That's so frustrating for me sort of to what you were speaking about. Jay is where individuals and you see this all the time where individuals will say okay. The warnings are out there. We have to social distance physical distance. Sorry we have to do X Y and Z. We have to get out in front of this thing and if we do that we'll be able to reduce the number of deaths because you know the the probabilistic statement is that will lose between X. People and ex people and then we do that. It starts working and they go see. It wasn't that bad every making so and you're watching that properly to to measures that were put in place recommend or the guidelines and recommendations by who the experts. It's amazing. I mean it's just incredible like you cannot get through to some people know. Look at its core. We as critical thinkers have established a trust in science We have a relationship with the methodology behind science and the people who practice that. And that's that is my baseline. That's my core. But the thing that just you know it's such a this is such a basic skeptical tenant that I don't care what the truth is. I just want to know what the truth is. My mood. I believe can change quickly with the right amount of information and proof right. That's that's the part. That's immutable here right. You're invested not invested in the end result. You're invested in the process and you're not sitting here trying to negotiate with truth to get a better outcome or one. That feels more when that feels like more politically salient. And that's a really difficult time. Right now is that there are world leaders there many world leaders and many governments or I should say governors and mayors here in the US who are looking at this thing an evidence based way and that's incredible to see in a time of crisis. They're saying I want to understand what the experts have to say. I want to talk to the garage. Epidemiologists I wanna see what these projections are and I want to do. What's right by the people? The problem is there are a handful of other world leaders. I don't think I have to be explicit. Who are just not interested in evidence and they wanna make decisions based on whether it either be their feelings whether it be what they wish. Were true what what would be more convenient to be true. None of us wish it were like this out there but we know the only road to getting past. This is to look at the

Several States Looking To Shift Recycling Costs Back To Manufacturers
"Disposing of voice can be complicated. Does it go in the recycling bin or the trash and who pays for it? That's become a hot button issue for cities across the country because those cities bear the brunt of the cost so now lawmakers in several states including Maine are considering laws that would shift the recycling and disposal costs of products back to the companies. That make them. It's called extended producer responsibility or Apr Choi Moon the Sustainability Coordinator in Portland. Maine joins us now to explain. Good Morning Good Morning. So what does through some of the problems that? Portland's having with with recycling right well. A lot of people are aware that recycling markets have been challenged in the last few years basically because of some changes in the international market with China Shutting the door for most products Some places are experiencing difficulty even moving Products to the market So costs for municipalities. Are rising rapidly in some communities. The price that they have to pay to the recycling plant is more than they have to pay to dispose of their trash. How much does this all cost? The city so In our case our recycling costs have risen over two hundred thousand dollars in the past year So it's you know it's a pretty significant jump from zero which we used to. We had an agreement with our recycling facility that we didn't make any revenue but we didn't have to pay any costs. I mean I buy things that are packaged in plastic and cardboard and parts of it are clean parts of it dirty and it's kind of hard to figure out how to throw it away properly but also how did it become the responsibility of the consumer to not only throw it out believe but basically pay for it. Yeah no that's exactly The point I think that You know Portland. And the communities are supporting on the extended responsibility hearing me and trying to make We have city employees vehicles ago and pick it up and take it to the recycling plant and waste to energy facility But that's the cost borne entirely by the local tax payers Despite the fact that the you know the goods that are being disposed of are produced and packaged by some of the largest brands in the world. These companies supportive of a bill like this that would put the the cost on them No I think you know it's a change here in the United States particularly but if you look at other parts of the world you know all of Europe has Ep Are we're maybe the first state in the US really pushing hard at this. So is the goal to get the manufacturer to change the way. A package is as well absolutely currently the producers. You know lack any real incentive to make sure that the products they make are fully recyclable. They are thoughtful about the amount and type of packaging. They use You know if they're going to be responsible for the costs of them they're more apt to make cost of Hanley and disposing them less expensive now. Portland's the biggest city in May but what about smaller cities or towns that don't have the resources Portland might have. How how does it work there? I think This type of legislation will benefit rural communities especially on a percentage basis. Uh small community spends more on solid. Waste GonNA BE CYCLING COSTS THAN WE DO And many small communities Trashing handling waste and recycling and trashes. And it's you know the second most expensive line item in their budgets after school so So it It would be a great benefit for or small communities as well that was Troy Moon Sustainability Coordinator of the city of Portland name.

Eddie are changing the way that the landscape looks and addresses things. So I'm excited to dive into these topics with with Everett today. And so ever just want to give you a warm welcome awesome. Thanks for joining us today. Much really appreciate the opportunity to chat with you today. And I'm looking forward to the discussion. I think given the audience that you've described ride in the people who download your podcast on a monthly basis. I think we'll have a fruitful conversation. I agree I agree. So tell me Everett what inspires inspires your work in healthcare. Sure I think mostly what gets me up every day and gives me that spark every morning is the potential that we have Specifically at applied. VR To provide an alternative solution for patients. Who are in pain or dealing with things? I we sell a lot of products into into the emergency department. Setting and I think we can all relate to anytime. You're you're going into the emergency department a lot of times. That might be the the worst day or night of your your year even your life and so being able to provide a product that we have confidence and we have clinical evidence that supports reports our ability to say that we're reducing pain and where we are reducing anxiety and helping patients cope with pain anxiety again at that point in their their life where they need it most and so. I think it's something that we think a lot about on a daily basis and it's definitely something that keeps me motivated more we we get the product addict out there that the more people were helping and of course building a business. I love the idea of being able to successfully start from zero and build and build something into a multimillion dollar enterprised. Yeah it's definitely exciting and so I looked to learn a little bit more about the technology the applications and exactly how you guys are are adding value to the ecosystem. Can you hone in on that for us. Yeah sure thing. So we offer a virtual reality therapeutic content. We currently are UH wellness product. Which means that we can't make medical claims because we have not put our products through FDA for you and clear and says medical devices but right well we are able to point to the clinical studies that we've done in the clinical studies that have been done on our products and that demonstrate the ability of virtual reality content to nets really relaxation exercises breathing exercises biofeedback etcetera a- all are designed to reduce anxiety and help patients cope with acute and chronic pain? Something that we you have a lot of anecdotal evidence on but also we've done the work to build a clinical body of evidence to support that use as well and so you think about the value proposition. Obviously there's there's a patient value here where patients more than a majority of patients prefer non opioid non pharmacologic logic pain management regimen virtual reality offering. Clearly we fit the bill. We also have a value prop for health systems and physicians in a variety have different settings and citing the emergency department. A lot of times. There's Qiyang's ID in that setting you can imagine that a patient with co Morbidity and who's on on average six to eleven different drugs and they come through the door adding another drugs. Such as been. Zo can complicate implicate your work stream and workflow. And so if you're able to introduce again a non pharmacologic solution that helps patients cope with their anxiety in pain in that setting and you're able to improve efficiencies as well so we can go through multiple different settings but that's just one example where we think through our value prop in terms of what we're offering the patient what we're offering dachshund in terms of their workflow efficiency and then what we're offering health systems uh-huh terms of their ability to provide value to to patients and improve cost structure that they obviously think about on a day to day basis. Nuts some some valuable pearls there ever at and and I mean we've discussed the challenges with the OPIOID epidemic and last year the NIH funded that they approved proved nine hundred and forty five million dollars toward research to more non opioid ways to reduce pain long-term and this is a critical equal. Time for technologies. Like this yeah so we we actually received some grant funding through the NFL. H There and we're number of. Yeah we we were part of that class clash with thanks. Yeah it was team effort. We've got a number of experts on staff here. That just did Yeoman's work and getting those Graham with Asians and then it and I think it's it's a real market credibility when h these promising you're in your product and you're offering. We're using that money. A to conduct clinical randomized controlled studies at Cleveland Clinic and Geissinger to study both pain reduction as well as opioid sparing airing. So we're matching this product up against standard of care that currently uses opioids and rightfully so in many cases. But there's also also room to improve and room to potentially reduce the need for opioids and a certain patient population and we're investigating that and we're kicking those. Those clinical studies off this year. And we're really grateful for the United Funding as well and it helps a company like ours which is a venture backed company. Upset oppose extended runway. I'll just bring in more experts and and again it just lends credibility. Yeah totally agree with you. I read in. It's exciting to hear you. You've got these outstanding partnerships partnerships with Some of the best in the provider space. And as you think about how your company the company that you guys are running there. What is it that differentiates is it? Wise it better than other. VR things that are out there. I think our approach is relatively unique and we have a a really broad base of data that we're pulling from so we sell into over two hundred and fifty hospitals across the country. We sell in the seven different countries. We've got an incredible amount of use that in data from that use that we are using to mind for four for clinical signals and uses just increasing with at thirty thousand patients that have used our our product today now this year. I think we'll probably hit at forty thousand and bag as a real competitive advantage in that were able to see where. VR Works and wear doesn't me think about treating pain for example in a lot of companies are looking at Vr as a solution for paying. We're not necessarily unique in that but the reason is is that there's a mechanism mechanism of action there and the cascade there that we believe that we all believe that we can tap into applied. VR Has the distinct advantage of being able to see across those thirty. Ideally say forty thousand usage over the course of a few years and and really mind for insights and signals. We're using that shape. Apr Clinical Studies and shape. Our Clinic put develop that program. I think what we're also differentiated is our intense focus on clinical winnick eleven. And we're doing that through strategic partnerships so our intense focus on evidence development. She added other company. Neither will but I'll tell you the way that we're doing I think is we do this through strategic partnerships and this partnership gratitude. Where are we are? co-developing are a chance to related products with NCI H. We're working with a couple of large judge health system and pears in co-development could ask there as well and even in our clinical study with ice very people into winnick. We had a strategic partnership elements those but that they're not just transactional clinical development program for we're software. So we're able to use the leverage the experts that he is sufficient during their fold in some elements of the product out of the clinical study. He it goes into FDA and ultimately that the market is something that has been shaped by the best practitioners. Were I think that that gives us a AH competitive advantage often. What is the issue clinical? Study one going back and forth with plentiful totally agree. But if you listening unique way you're able to refuse to produce a product that is better than just a transactional

"APR. Inside. No. Super Bowl history. Scoring. At certain points. Beatriz fifth Super Bowl. As my co host Kevin Harlan with the final call a Super Bowl fifty one game at the folks here in this city. We're in right now remember for kind of different reasons, but for James, white, it was clearly a defining moment. A performance that ultimately brought the patriots to the Super Bowl title and an opportunity once again now, here's he comes back to play in another against the Rams coming up on Sunday. We continue on the road to Super Bowl fifty three. It is two days to Sunday. And Kevin James, white interesting. I've talked to him during the course of the year this year again, and in the patriots system, you never really know. Because in the first playoff game against the chargers. The opening drive he had five catches. He had fifteen catches on the game. But he is you know, in talking to me says you never really know what the way we're going to be used. Whether you're getting the ball or not you have to be patient. You have to trust the offensive coordinator you have to trust Chom. And and you know, I think you might have heard this before you do your job, right? And they do, and I think the fact that they trust that scouting. Report so much when they get it Wednesday morning before Sunday game and trust the coaching. And and I don't think they make things overly complicated, but it is a complex offense and certainly a complex defense. And they they just instilled the trust factor, which a lot of coaching staffs never really get a chance to wrap themselves around their players in the way that the patriot coaches do with their players, these they sell them on the product they seldom on the way, the compass has pointed, and they all seem to respond, and you know, if you watch Brady during a game even in their Kansas City game a couple of weeks ago, Scott his expression, never changes. But you know, what? I look at the faces of all those patriots. They never they don't change. They are focused. They know and they never panicked. They never blink. And that's one of the great attributes that Bella check is instill while you do get the feeling that if the patriots are to perform well in this game that James white is going to be a part of it earlier. This week our own Edward got a chance to sit down with it. I know your your team had a lot of faith in you. And and probably your opportunity came slower than you expected. But in your first opportunity to go to the Super Bowl, you're a healthy inactive in your second Super Bowl. You should have probably been the MVP. Would you fourteen catches three touchdowns one hundred and thirty nine total yards? Did you expect to have that kind of impact going into that game? I knew I have some opportunities because their defense played the similar defense would Seattle play when we played my rookie year and shame marine had like nine catches and had a big game for new opportunities. Obviously, not fourteen catches worth opportunities. But we are trailing in. I mean, that's not the situation you wanna be in but kind of turned into a passing game for so I just so happened to be out there. The majority of the game and just wanna leave it all out there on the field. What have we seen a something of a transformation offensively in the postseason with your dedication to the running game? Why is that? Offers allies we're doing a great job blocking force all year, long tight ends receivers fullback, James Devlin been opened up huge holes. I in the running game. So it's been a big plus for us and for offense. We just try to find a way to win a football game. Whatever it takes this run. The ball throwing mix play action guy. Do whatever it takes you. Speaking of doing whatever it takes a pretty ridiculous stat line in the first playoff game against the chargers. Running back with no carries. But fifteen catches. How do you? How do you know what your role is going to be? I mean is it I know you prepare during the week for certain expectations. But is a game. Like that something that evolves during the course of the game. It can involve during the course of the game, and you can have an idea into the week of how many possible opportunity you may get obviously not thinking probably fifteen catches. But it depends on the divas game plan and what they're trying to stop in being in the right spots and catching the football. What about being in the triangle of trust is Tedy Bruschi calls it the Tom Brady most trust you and Julian and garage. With the football. However, you earned that with Tom overtime amazes a lot of repetitions and practice preseason OTA's training camp. Cosmeticians over and over and over again connected and working on the new rouse new plays and take some extra time. Maybe what is the divas superior? Ryan a couple rows on the side and just being on the same page. I think this is what it takes Tom said without equivocation yesterday that Super Bowl Sunday would not be his last game with the New England Patriots gladder you guys to hear. That is always good news him while your team for sure grace quarterback of all time. Was this your been life for gronk hasn't been the dominant force but still ineffective block or had a good statistical game against the chiefs. What's how how is he changed as his role has evolved? And I don't think he's changed at all. I mean, obviously, you may not have as many yards. He has previously touchdowns and all that. But he doesn't get credit for that. Lower tight ends may not be able to do as his blocking skills, and he opens up holes. Just like officer line, and he's been able to play his role in different ways. Whether we even the passing game one week or in the game. When we as always a big bonus out there how flexible is this offense in terms of his ability to morph into whatever it is a creates the most favorable matchup against the defense. You're playing in that week, and it just takes great execution. Everybody locked into the game plan and going out there and executing. We don't have any egos on this offense. Nobody cares who gets the credit long as it's the w. James? Thanks very much for joining us on the show. We appreciate it. Thank you. There is little doubt that being an offensive player doing with patriots is an all in kinda thing because as we were talking about at the top with Kevin you have to be ready to perform and also ready potentially be bypassed for big parts of the game, depending upon the way the game dictates the way the pace dictates, and what the defense is giving you James white has proven over the course of this postseason..
