New Zealand Stock Market Halts Trading Amid Cyber Attack
"Trading on the New Zealand Stock Exchange has. been halted for like a week because, of Adidas, attack and this was this attack was already happening before adamant I recorded last week shy but we didn't talk about it at the time because we weren't sure what the motivation was. The Cross Church massacre terrorist was sentenced last week. So we thought they could have been a political nexus to the attack, but now it looks like fairly standard. Diaz ransom stuff. Standard. Blackmail. But at a pretty big scale, two, hundred gigabits per second is what is saying that they're tapping? At End. Up Pretty significant target the New Zealand Stock Exchange. This is a little bit risky just like the ransomware people who are going after critical national assets things like hospitals where people are GonNa die I think these guys are playing with fire New Zealand's got a pretty serious Intel capability vice country and I wouldn't be shocked if doing things like going after the Stock Exchange ends up with these guys in the real crosshairs. Yes. are able to take down the part of the ends at X. Website that dealt with company announcements and because they couldn't provide. Appropriate access to company information they had to suspend trading, and it's been up and down all week. So it is actually a pretty it is actually a pretty big deal.

Ego boost that you give to your victims but yeah, I, don't think this is how the G. R. U. is monetize their activity. No, and it looks like one of the issues here was that ends at was hosting its DNS servers and its content service on the same network, which is usually a good thing to do. We keep on saying this is a very important pieces of infrastructure where people have not thought through and threat model that. Looks like and and I do think you know any organization of reasonable size needs to have security assessments that don't just try to break in into look at traditional intrusion but to think through if dos attack happens, what is the the thin part of your infrastructure? That's GonNa feel I. This is really interesting because you know obviously most of the exchanges probably disconnect from the Internet on private networks on leased. Lines in such But like you said, if they can take down a web service and a website that is critical to the legal operation of the site, then does it matter if the backend servers still operating they have to stop operation overall? Yeah. This attack campaign is also targeting money Graham braintree and other finance services companies, and we have linked through to a write up on zd by Cowan Kim

Seattle Kraken: NHL announces name of 32nd franchise
"These story of the week the Seattle thirty two's have a name. They are the Seattle cracking before we drill down and getting some of the. Pacific says a Sandy Atlantic about this. How important was the events of this week for Seattle for the NHL? Like how big a deal is this for the League? It's a huge deal and first of all. It was a fun topic Jeff. Life is hard for people right now. And that was a fun couple of hours. The reveal the video, the look at the Jersey. The name like whether people like the name or didn't like it. They were kind of laughing like Whoa. That's really off the board and I know you don't like it. Because of the nicknames that can come from it, but I love it. It's different. It's different for hockey. It's a step out of the. The normal, it's bold. It's it's a change. It's a try it something new, and I think hockey badly needs that. There were a couple of interesting things I've found out in some conversations number one when they were talking about the Jersey with the people from Adidas one of the things they were saying is we have to imagine what it would look like to lift the Stanley Cup? In this Jersey we can't think that it's going to. To look terrible to lift the Stanley Cup in this Jersey and I liked the Jersey. I liked that way of thinking i. think that's very big. The other I heard that was interesting, was that they chose the name crack and I, and then they went about the identity, the logo and the Jersey and the like the story line of the cracking, and there were some people who heard the name and they were like, are you? You, sure about this, is this really a good idea? And then they started to see the logo and the identity behind it, and they bought in and a lot of times when expansion teams come in. They won't reveal the name the logo end the Jersey at the same time they'll do maybe name and logo at once and Jersey later. This was a win because they did all three at once and I think that's sold people. I think they had to do it that way. And I I think you're right and to the point like we've talked about before I, wanted sasquatch. Works on a whole lot of levels, but again as I pointed out on this podcast before I've realized, and I've been dragged kicking and screaming into this realization that not everything is for me, and that's okay now. I don't want to I gotTa WanNa shoot an Arrow and then paint a circle around it after it lands I. Don't WanNa. Be That Guy Oh. Yeah I, liked it all along cracking his great. Oh a homerun tape measure, but at that reveal. I didn't hate it. Like I love the colors I love you collars look great. The colors are great. The logo looks great. I can get used to crack in and the one. You're think is a good one. It is different. It is distinct and the one expectation that I think we all have a bow. Seattle at this point is that everything they do is going to be new is going to be progressive is gonNA surprise a lot of people whether it is the name which is very nontraditional, whether it's the first you know green arena climate pledge arena. Everything they do is going to be different. We expect that they're hiring policies progressive the way that they are going to do business as progressive I. Just hope that it doesn't stop now I. Don't think that it does but what does do Elliot selfishly since I have conceded sasquatch. Bang the drum for different colored ice for Seattle Oh my God. I knew you're GONNA. All all our producer I wrote down actually I got to tell you I wrote down. When does jeff come up with the different colored? Ice Oh my God yeah. I'm telling. Pretty, it'd be this early. It will put it this way Jeff. If one team's going to do it, it's going to be this one well. They WANNA. They're promoting. They have the green arena, so do green ice here you go. Here's your chance. I'd love to see if the NHL allows this you know. It reminds me a lot of the raptors. When the raptors came in new, there were a lot of people didn't like raptors and I remember. John Bits of doing an interview on the Fan with Bob McCowan and John. biddle said Bob. What do you think of the name and he goes Bob? Said I hate it and John biddle said good. That means that you're not in our target audience so I! Don't care what you think about it. And the other thing, too, is you talk about the team? Look at their twitter feed now that we have a name or strategizing all the ways to draft your favorite player. Yeah, like there are people in the league. Telling me I'm sick of these guys already sold. The rivalries are building. Yes, rivalries are building so the other two Jeff I I'd heard was. I heard the amount of meetings over the small details were unreal. The color of the is how many is you know I didn't realize I saw the video. When you look at the logo, the S has tentacle through it. like that black line is the tentacle of the cracking, and there was one person who told me that They weren't so sure about this until they saw that video and I have to say identify with that. When I saw the video and saw that that's what that black line was supposed to be. I thought that was really cool. What are the things about the whole reveal by? Seattle is the security around at the secrecy around. It the lack of leaks. I thought for sure that by the morning of the announcement it would be out there and confirmed by somebody I'll tell you the one thing that I learned from one of maybe if not my favorite movie of all time jaws. Is this Don't show the shark. Secret that movie is they don't show the shark until much later on. Don't show the shark and the one thing that Seattle did in this entire process is. They didn't show the shark like sure. There was a temptation there to extend the metaphor. Show the shark, but they didn't do it. Even in that video as everybody is going through this pruder's style frame by frame by frame, trying to look for clues I gotta give it to Seattle Man. They didn't show the shark at all. One of the big conversations I heard after they decided the name was. What's the Mascot GonNa look like. Well and that's when you get the rivalry about DETROIT WITH DETROIT. Yes, it looks too much like a traditional octopus. It won't. There's no way it will. No of course not, and they also said like the Jersey, the crack and has to look. Not like a WIMP, it can't be a wimpy cracking I. Don't know enough about mythological creatures. I'm not sure there can be a wimpy cracking. Does it exist I? Doubt it every movie I've ever mccracken. They're pretty nasty, but they definitely talk about that. We can't have a soft cracking. So the jerseys were revealed the branding is revealed and Tim Leiweke, who's a CEO of the Oak View Group was on hockey central with us. The day of the announcement and he let something slide. Let something slip. That was pretty interesting. We spent more time going back and look at the Metropolitans. In the fact, they won the Stanley cow, so we spend a lot of time looking at that history and tradition. I won't spill all the beans, but I'll tell you. There's a third and Fourth Jersey coming. Eventually wore on her that legacy in that tradition. Hundred Seventeen team. Of course when the won the Stanley Cup I would imagine that if they're winking at history that hard, and I think that they will. That will probably see Abana raising on opening night while you're going to do something special rate. I think they'll do a number of the special things on opening night I would imagine that would be one of them. Yes, and you know a nice touch too here. We are here here. He goes, SEATTLE. Here's here's a million ideas here on this podcast. HAP Holmes was the goaltender for that Seattle team homes played on a number of Stanley Cup, champions real good goaltender born in Aurora in the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame, died relatively young I think it is early fifties in Florida, but he wore a baseball cap. I think it might have been the first goaltender in the NHL to ever wear a baseball cap. It would be nice if they did something with HAP Holmes and abate. I don't know what it is I'm just doing this off the top of my head, but if someone is wearing a hap-. Maybe it's whoever the goaltender is for. The opening ceremony wears a HAP, Holmes baseball hat that would be a nice touch for the. Hockey nerd like me out there. WHO DIDN'T GET SASQUATCH well? One thing I looked up was to Seattle have any retired numbers and they don't. Remember when Ottawa came in had an old retired number. Frank Finnegan, and they honored it. But Seattle, I can't sense that they do. Okay, so now. Seattle's job is to make this team to create this team out of nothing not unlike what Vegas went through most recently. Do. They have a friend in the flat Cap Seattle All I. We talked about this last week. I, think they're a huge winner. In the new CBA their job just became. If easier is the right word, but I they gain some real advantages and. A few teams have said that to me that the mistakes Vegas they were going to avoid them now. Circumstances have dictated that someone's going to have to make them, and it's a huge advantage for them. There's no question from a financial point of view Elliott. We just mentioned the flat cap here second ago. Given the economic realities NHL NHL is going through now, and we'll go through in the next couple of seasons I know. I opened up by saying how important is Seattle team, but I'll ask it again from an economic point of view to this team, not just become where the more important teams in the NHL team thirty two new infusion of money. Well there's no question that that's true and new infusion of enthusiasm to the Batman, and daily made it very clear and their negotiations with the players that ownership cash flow was very important. They got expansion money that players don't share in from Vegas and there were some owners who thought they didn't get enough. In terms of the system stuff, edgy arbitration that they wanted, but one of the things they could be sold on was that they've expansion money coming in, and that's their win, and that's cash, so there's no doubt that Seattle's big for a lot of reasons, and the other thing too is even before this. There were people who were predicting. Predicting that Seattle would be a top ten revenue team in the NHL. They're gonNA need that. They're merchants already hot negative. That's one of the reasons. It didn't get out because it's not ready at right me, you can order stuff, but I learned through this process that one of the ways that logos and names get leaked Jeff is that you have to share them with vendors or you presale them to vendors and things like that. They didn't do it this time. They didn't do it this time day. Kept it all close Alright talk, congratulations, seattle you now have a name in the NHL has team

And I can't help but think that these magnificent and highly intelligent creatures could only be descended from one thing. See the truth is hockey's always been here, sleeping giant ready to be awoken. And this city deserves a hockey club untamed as the sea herself. And when we heard the rallying cry ing of the fans and we heard the undeniable passion they had for this name. We knew it was the one We are the Seattle crackin.

"adidas" Discussed on The Journal.
"Adidas is the largest sportswear retailer in the world after Nike Its logo. The three stripes is one of the most recognizable brand around. Our colleague courageous after covers retail and she says that over the years there's been one key group of people who have helped make adidas so famous. It has really leaned on black culture in the last couple of decades to market its products, it uses black sports, stars and sell sneakers using black influencers. This link with black culture goes back decades in the nineteen eighties the rap group. Made a song about the sneakers. These days Adidas has deals with musicians like frail Williams Kanye West, and beyond say and athletes like NBA player James Harden. Defense Authors Houma game in a box. It's really important for a dita's gear and sneakers to be worn by a black artist by the black sports stars. The black community is very important to Adidas, but dozens of employees or saying that the external image of Adidas as a company that's in tune with black culture isn't reflected inside the company. Starting with its Leadership Adidas is a German company. That's where it's offices, and where most of its top leadership is from, the company doesn't have any black members on his executive team or board of directors. When Julia Bond started working as an assistant designer at the company's North American headquarters in Portland Oregon last year, she noticed almost immediately that people inside. Indeed this didn't look like the people in its ads. I joked about it at the time like with my co worker, I remember sitting at my desk and I laughed I was like well, only black person and she was like. She was like, but wait really you. You are the only black person, and then we started to talk about it and she was like wait. I think you're. I think you're the only black female across like apparel designer across all categories here. Wow, and that. That was really isolating. I was like. Wow! I guess I am the only black female that's. DESIGNING APPAREL IN PORTLAND. For Adidas right and I was like that was really. Was a dark day. I would say because it was very like. Wow, okay I. know we're out there right I know there's black female apparel designers out there, but like where where are we? I would notice it a lot more after said it out loud. I would be in meetings and I would look, and I'd be like still just me. Then one day last summer only a couple months after she became a full time employee, something happened that made Julia. Feel even more isolated at work. Did is creative. Directors had sent inspiration packets to design teams all across the company. These packets were full of images images that we're supposed to serve as a conceptual starting point for the next season's collection. Damages were also hung up on a wall so that designers could be constantly thinking about them. And that's when an intern on Jewish team came over to talk about one of the pictures. She had come down to our area and she was like hey, did you guys see the confederate flag on the wall? And I was like what. Are you sure it's a confederate flag I googled it and shoulders like this is a confederate flag shorts that like didn't believe her, and she was like. Yeah, come on, let's go on the wall and look. So. We looked at the wall and my immediate team came with me, and we looked at it and I'm looking at this image of a guy who's skating with a confederate flag on his t shirt. And I remember. A start to cry and I wasn't expecting that at all. And this is after we had a meeting where. Our marketing team is telling us that we have to better target inservice service, the urban consumer and I use the biggest air quotes of my life here. When they mean black people. like our highest design. Aspiration is a confederate flag. Yet you guys want us to speak to black people. It broke me to be honest because. I can't understand how. This happened like you know like how. How did that happen? To my ancestors died. Because people chose to wave that flag. That flag is a symbol of hatred. And it frustrated me so much I just couldn't stop crying and my team was like Llosa's like so messed up like. You shouldn't be made to feel this way at work and they were even flustered. For Julia. It wasn't just the image. She was also disturbed at the thought of how many other employees must have seen it and not said anything. These images went not only to the Portland team, but also to Germany, and they also like circulated around not just apparel, but footwear and marketing. Allot lot of hands had these images right and you know these were the final images right so I can only imagine the process of you know. Consolidating and dwindling down, and getting really clear, and making sure that these were the ones. You want it to show the team. Julia talked to her boss and hr about the incident. She says she was promised an explanation about how a confederate flag got into the design inspiration packet, but that explanation never came. Adidas declined to comment on Julius Story and declined to provide us with a racial breakdown of its staff. The same summer that Julia had the incident with the confederate flag, another employee in a different part of the company was dealing with something similar. His name is Aaron Teret. I'm thirty years old, born and raised in Germany, half black openly queer I've been working for the data's group for close to three years now Aaron works for Reebok. A Brand Adidas owns last August he went to an all hands meeting Reebok's Boston office with a group of top executives from Adidas. There was a Q. and A. In one question had to do with the New York Times story about Adidas that run a few weeks earlier, the story highlighted concerns from employees about a lack of diversity and its effect on the company's culture. Adidas is head of HR. Karen Parkin took the question. Because she felt this was mostly in age our topic. Karen Parkin started to answer this question. And she said more or less that this is only noise that we do here here in the US. I do not really believe that there's an issue was. Let me get this straight, so there was a question about how the company was. Going to deal with and confront racism correct, and the head of human resources stood up with the company, and said that racism was just noise in the United States. Yes more or less That's what she said correct. This sparked quite a lot of outrage and at our headquarters, so the day after there was a lot of meetings with the SLT's the senior leadership team at L. Company where we discussed what has happened and a lot of employees in a very emotional manner, sometimes even started to share their experience, and how they felt there were people crying, because they've been with a company for a long time, and basically said that they felt very disappointed that even though our president and our team was also present during that meeting, no one had said anything. Now want to reiterate also that while Karen may have been the person that answered the question. No one did really say anything to answer in a more. Suitable way well. How did you interpret those comments to mean? And how did it make you feel about the company on that day? I lost a lot of trust. I think lost a lot of trust in the leaders Liebeck that will also present. I lost a lot of. The part numbers many of which I've actually met in person June time in Germany I lost a lot of trust in corporations as a whole. Did it said that it does not tolerate racism, but both Aaron Julia felt like the company hadn't.

You've previously listed on destroying company on the X. Which managed billions of dollars of insurance claims and expanded the business internationally across Australia New Zealand Philippines in Great Britain reaching Five at six hundred staff whilst becoming the youngest managing director of Asset Company at the time. Tell me what was like growing up for you. In where did your entrepreneurial journey begin on the entire was a blast from the Pasta was a An interesting previous lots. Look a lucky break. When I was young my father all I was at university. You Cue up is the sole something in me and backed me in a little I'm improvements business that it guttering and roofing and all sorts of things like that so I walked around in bushels sky. Chooses a thing on Montaigne. You're all the business and and supply chains and things will go wrong and customers and processing all that jazz and and just had a real passion not so much to the product you know just the business so really got stuck into that and and built that up ended up selling that often and started another Businesses still had a bit of sort of getting deeper into the management of insurance clients but I built some software to manage it because of that time everything I still remember off the one storm having decided to someone. Look I'm sorry are you. Send the required request or a little bit light on. My fax machine is currently busy and and the early two thousands everything was facts and I remember the first email I got with a job request. Though was one of my skin sense that they would email us. Because how do they even know? I check my email every day. So not the done thing had just built that up and it's and things and Some things worked out really well some things that really proud of and and some things did not work out well and it was the lessons of both sides of move really quite interesting and and you know learning that sixty s to early doesn't actually teach you much doesn't actually teach you what not to do and teach you sort of things for the future and some of the difficult times kind because Han. Saad didn't know as much as I wanNA put onward but anyway that's how little you mentioned on so some big lessons from more values than as opposed to the successes of their any big lessons to sort of. Stay out you back. Spend that gives carried through. You'll sort of Korea. I guess as you've gone along. Yeah one of the big lessons is that actually the structure no structural achieve your vision and your mission in hunt side. There's lots of good strategies and lots of good vision. People I work with now and companies that invest in north of energy and focus that goes into strategy and vision and mission all on. Just it's actually the structure that will achieve it so as an example. A bite the one you know. A structural issue is like time orientation meaning short-term time orientation is long-term time orientation if your structure is short-term orientated and needs to be as an example come across a lot of people that are entrepreneurial wants to build a business they. WanNa get a business off the ground but you know what they're gonNA put food on the table in the show family. They'RE GONNA pay off school phase dual these shorter term things and ultimately the problem then becomes is there not structured so actually achieve that vision mission because the build a business? Sometimes you've gotta go for years with with very little in common you've got to bootstrap Lou those things in the problem. Is they become more and more frustrated because then achieving that vision and the mission thoughts from agree. I A lot of the things that I was trying to do. Didn't have a hope in hell of actually seeing a lot of day but because they weren't good ideas that I didn't have the passion on the Ngoni of that we didn't have the structure lies to Do it and sort of really getting to the bottom of the ingredients structure frost now with what we do with some clients. It's just about the time our intention roller responsibilities wards systems at your information flow all of these things flow into well we would define as the structure. And if you don't have the structure what you WanNa cheap got a choice to make. Either you keep going to that vision that mission so to speak and ignore the structure or you gotTa do a little bit of a dance. Maybe and I changed my structure a little bit to get a little bit of the mission and vision that I want and they once. I've done that a little bit of the dance. That in hindsight was one of the big learning even today so on we just on that as a structural element and it's silly example that I use. I wake up one day and decided I wanted to be. I my own supermodel now. The good thing with podcast is you. Don't actually have a video so I I can assure people that I am not structured to be Amousou. Gamal have the looks the stakes any of those bits and pieces right. I don't have the structure to be a mile supermodel so I've got a couple of choices. Either I can change my structure. Maybe I can gone lose. Twenty kilos leg extensions facelift. Go to the gym. All of that and become close to what today's definition is of a mouse. Oh Oh it's what I'm going to have to update my mission and vision to actually the achieve when I can based on my structure so there needs to be a bit of a Damn Mission Instruction Michigan structured structure. Yes I will can I change. My structure is something out of my control. Dance and and people did that more. And we're able to adjust the structural reality of the reality. Today I would be able to make incremental steps towards the big vision but often they just try shoe to five without a structure to support it so that was a big one that I still carry through tonight.

So the news this week is that is testing the future craft loop. It is the first sneaker it is designing to be returned to us for recycling into another pair of shoes. Adidas is looking at this sneaker as part of the closed loop process, where nothing ends up in landfills, according to an article about it in Blasi, David quad, who was the project director, on the global strategy team told glossy that consumption can facilitate the expression of self creativity. But people as we know on the show are becoming more aware of the car. Consequences that consumption can have. So they're trying to offset that model of consumption. He said, quote, at the end of the day, even our product made from recycled ocean plastic still gets thrown away. That's the key insight that fueled future craft loop and gave us the inspiration to come up with an alternative unquote. Adidas is testing the future craft loop sneakers with a group of two hundred consumers influencers and athletes that does not include me. Are you better just a little another two to three hundred pairs are being tested by Adidas employees and in a few months, they're all gonna turn in their shoes so that they can be recycled into a second generation?.
