Fist security pepe says a number of closed circuit television cameras applies to strategic locations throughout. On Saturday September fifteen, two, thousand, seven, just stopped at ten am and notably Chinese couple will walking through southern cross station when they noticed a female toddler standing alone need the escalator. Shay, was evasion appearance and to look to bear around three years old. She had short doc hair, cutting a Bob and wore a red denim, hooded, jacket and Akwa, colored vest with a red and pink dormant patent and brought pink Corduroy Pants. thinking that tall blonde lot of Bain lost the Koppel approach ten attempted to speak to her. When she didn't respond, they beckoned a Victoria royal employee named Marina Meshu Glue I've to save. Hey could help. While trying to speak with the Child Marino patted her on the head, and immediately noticed that her hair was very gracie as though it hadn't been washed in some Thanh.

And quickly realized that Pumpkin had been deliberately abandoned.
Why An Experimental Therapy for Inflammatory Disorders Could Help the Fight Against COVID-19
"As a researcher Joe Garcia Applied Functional Genomics to understanding genes that contribute to inflammatory disorders such as acute respiratory distress syndrome or arts as founder and CEO of the Biotech Company. Akwa Lung Therapeutics. He's working to advanced therapies to hit these novel targets to treat unchecked inflammation with the company's lead experimental therapeutic candidate targeting arts. We spoke to Garcia about the company's arts. Therapy how it works. And why it's time we focus given the cove nineteen pandemic Joe. Thanks for joining us. To be here thing we're going to talk about Aqua Lung Therapeutics Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome or arts and your efforts to develop a treatment for this condition. Let's start with ours though. What is it and how big a health challenge? Does it represent about half a million people. Every year get air F- Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in the United States alone. And you know close to two million. Maybe globally so it's it's not a uncommon Disorder But it is a extremely challenging to treat disorder because mortality of this. Anyone that had gets a yard is Thirty to forty percents In the US and it's probably higher Outside the US what makes it so challenging to treat? Well it's It's sort of the ultimate in inch in the stress to To a human being in that They have multiple attacks on a variety of Oregon starting with the lung though the the most common causes of ARD s are sepsis which is infection in the bloodstream and trauma and Smoking elation will do it and that Curiel and viral pneumonias and so as a result the starts off with inflammation in the lung from those particular Causes the inflammation becomes waves waves of amplify inflammation that starts to affect other organs. Like your kidneys and heart and ultimately patients with AIDS wind up. They don't survive. They die from that multi organ failure and that he's organs weren't able to sustain the inflammatory injury we've heard a lot about the respiratory challenges that can occur to people infected with the covid nineteen virus are the ones who end up on respirators suffering from arts and what role does arts play in the mortality of patients with Covid nineteen arches probably the primary cause of death in most of the cove in nineteen patients. At least that's what the the reports from China and elsewhere suggesting Covid NINETEEN INDUCE. Cards has a lot of similarities to garden variety area but it also has some unique changes that that may not be typical. Air S. as well and The ventilator Think this is an important part of the story. That patients with With Kobe nineteen viral infection or other causes of Respiratory distress like I mentioned substance or bacterial pneumonia trauma and you have Increasing respiratory distress your lungs. Start to fill with Lewis and the work of breathing when your lungs are. Our full of fluid is very very rate. So these patients generally run out of Energy the fatigue and they need then later to help with their respiration and so the the the the irony of of this is that the ventilator while saving your life because your new patients for an out of energy agreed on their own then later also the major cause for information as well. That's been known for now sometime and so strategies to address a yes whether it's cove nineteen induced or otherwise need to take into account the fact that then later contributes to that inflammatory burden patients with they as an academic. You've done functional
An Open Source Economy of Abundance with Marcin Jakubowski
"Hello everybody Vince Horn here for another episode of Buddhist Geeks and today I am very very delighted to be having a conversation with Martian Jukovski. Good to have you on the show Martin and thank you so much for taking the time to chat with the Buddhist geeks. I'm really excited about this conversation. Because so much of what you're doing. Feel a resonance with but it's also different from what we're doing here Buddhist excited Dick's where the intersections excellent. So let's dive right in. Okay I've got my bathing suit on and I'm ready to go seven Fahrenheit and sweet Maysville Missouri. But I'll join metaphorically awesome are you. Are you at the factory farm right now yes. That's the Kansas City area. Okay cool and I and I understand that. You have also google fiber out there. Oh and that's an addition since about a year now and that's why we can have this conversation hopefully seamlessly today. Yeah no mood. That's a big game changer fiber. We spent the money on a week. We got the pipes run here. Trenched bury them and the whole facility with Up to four GIG. Wow that's awesome. See if you're kind of you're living the dream for me. Which is you've got high-speed gig multi gigabit Internet and you're out on a farm building Chit Really Cool. I'm excited to talk about your work so so I saw. I saw your tedtalk a number of years ago. Odds probably about ten years or so ago now Something like that and and just immediately was like okay this person and your partner Katharina. Y'All are doing really interesting work with the open source ecology movement and In that talk you spoke about the global construction kit which you know. Last time I checked this is like a fifty fifty or so different items that you're looking to build open source that the kind of you would be necessary for human civilization to To to this global village construction set fifty industrial machines to create small-scale civilization with modern comforts essentially the critical machines from tractors bread ovens production equipment energy equipment and and Carson everything. You need to create infrastructure. That's the basis of thriving than so we can talk about then getting meditative but you have to provide some basic needs. I yeah you can't you can't just Meditate without without some basic needs Yogis the the people they had their comfortable caves and flame. That's right that's right. Yeah and some nettles to eat right and and and you're going to see the vision that you'll have is is going well beyond that. I mean you're talking about being able to replicate modern comforts without having to rely so much on the sort of centralized modern systems that we've all come kind of dependent on. Yeah exactly the idea is. Let's distribute the economy. So right now we're in a state of centralization but the fund that by fundamental design we have a distributed world and I think that comes from the first principle of energy energy is distributed. Solar Energy is distributed. That's pretty much where all the power for today's economy comes from. It's from the sun right so by nature. We have a distributed system but the way we created we kind of reformulated as humans isn't into a hugely centralized one so to get back to more in touch with those principles of distribution decentralisation that gives power to everybody literally and metaphorically to tell me more about like the journey that you've been on with the global village construction set because I saw you've you've made a tremendous amount of progress on that front. You know it's one thing to hear someone give a Ted talk about about something that's like an inspiring idea prototypes. It's another to see your ten years later. Like have made real progress on the stuff again to hear about that. Yeah definitely maybe you know you can say at the time of Ted Talk. Were a few percent down right now. I would quantify it as like one third done so we've got hundreds of prototypes Twenty or thirty unique prototypes everything from tractors to CNC machines. Three D. PRINTERS HOUSES. Akwa punit greenhouses. In fact we actually added the house as a critical machine since we kinda thought well. That's a living machine. Actually belongs in the global village construction set but the power is yet getting a comprehensive said along a construction setup route. So we're looking at it more as building blocks and to derive from how Lennox Open source. Software has there is one of the keys to success was large modular break down into very small parts can have thousands of people working on at the same time. And that's exactly what we do with hardware breaking down into modules and development steps for each module sewer inching along at the time of the Ted. Talk I kind of felt like I missed my great opportunity because I had so many people contact me. And all of that and we didn't have an organization. We hardly have an organization right now. We really don't yet. Were not at that level of having a business so to say like a real solid organism. But we do have a lot of foundational work. I think we are. I would call ourselves an exponential organizations laying a solid foundation with all the prototyping that we have done now ready to to convert that to economic impact so transitioning from the Playing prototyping to to the to the next step which a lot of open source Projects Forget and that is a product. So what what are the products that we can offer that anymore? Anyone can use okay. That's cool. I mean it's interesting. I'm thinking back to win. I got even more kind of interested in Y'all's work and I think at a certain point I started to really feel this kind of poll to be sort of subtract myself out ourselves out of the sort of capitalist system a bit more to be able to offer meditation teaching more freely. You know to be little less dependent on a pay for service model and you know one of the big questions that comes up is like okay. We'll around like housing costs. And how do you? How do you reduce your cost like housing is like one of the major costs and you all were some of the only people that were talking about being able to build an an ecologically sustainable you know house for like twenty five grand? Yeah and that's unheard of you not to be able to hit those kind of Knows numbers and that's what I think is really interesting about what what you're trying to do is you're really setting a goal of kind of price reduction that really competes with the capitalist markets on their own terms in a way. That's hard for them to be. It'd be hard if you're actually able to pull this off for companies to To to have any response to tenth the Price House or tractor or brick press or all the things that you're building. Yeah that's exactly right so let's dive into. There's actually a very interesting page like when I look at the WIKKI statistics. There's a page on our wicky open source ecology that org slash wicky which has cost of living. And you said it. The number one cost of living is housing on average. I have some stats here in. Its sixty eight hundred dollars a year. Then the second one is your car. Thirty four hundred dollars a year and then food twenty six hundred dollars a year and yet it adds up to about twenty thousand or so. Just let's see the the number actually is twenty thousand per year per person according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a household doesn't sound too bad but Ideas let's so let's go for example to the CDC home just to show you like a very tangible example so in a CD go home. You mentioned twenty five thousand dollars okay. But where's the Labor that's materials so the model there is a client? Pays probably like ten thousand dollars service fee. We host a workshop where we swarm on the build with about fifty or so people and build that in five days and I think that the more like a turnkey cost to the client. We more like seventy thousand. That's kind of what if we if you'd actually start full cost accounting like the twenty five thousand dollars as materials. Yes so you'd have to figure out how to do it but we did with a swarm based build the idea there is you are providing an immersion education. So basically you're selling inexperienced. People participate in get a lot of skills have a lot of fun shatter some of the limits in their mind about what's possible in terms of effective building using very collaborative learning rich learning environment. That's very supportive. So that's the product we're trying to develop and probably if you look at economics probably like seventy thousand dollars for a a house builder a basically the House. The person who wants to have the house before fourteen hundred square foot house so still about was Chris in the cost of industry standards. Right we actually roll this out. So there's a whole organization to behind it and sell. That's kind of how it looks right now. Now of course if you're a skilled guy and you've got a family that can build that while you're not gonna be able to do it in five days but over a month he can take our modular construction methods because everything in the system is designed to be handled by people not not example cranes or large machines the way we designed modular construction method lends itself to a swarm belt with normal people and really reducing the skill set by essentially trying to turn this into. Lagos as much as possible That's interesting and and from what I gathered like everything that you're doing the documentation around the processes like everything is part of the open source model like everything is shared shared. Absolutely everything. There's two levels so one is design seconds. Dente price design. And that's that this is where we talk about the concept of distributive enterprise. Yes the idea if we do it. And it's good for the world. Everyone can use it and and people in modern society. People think that you have to be proprietary or you have to have a competitive advantage based on Ip Order to win here are competitive. Advantage or collaborative advantage is the the opposite. Is the fact that we're collaborating? And if you think about it you're in kindergarten you'd understand because at that point we kinda were talked to to Cher but from High School Into College. Johnny were completely taught the opposite and right now. There's a huge cultural barrier that prevents people from comprehending that. Hey we can actually do. More together. Annihilate the AB- the material scarcity issues that are still central to life in the west end in the developing
8 Things You Can Do For Free on Norwegian Encore
"Are the eighth things you can do? Completely for free on board Norwegian uncle. I'm Gary. This is another of my tips for travelers Norwegian and cruises and encore of you huge amounts of choice on the cruisers. But not everything is for free talk about eight incredible things that you can do without to paying any extra money above your cruise fare. Starting with this one you can go and see Broadway. Production shows of incredibly ably high quality on original call. They have the multi award winning show. Which one Tony's also on awards in London West End Kinky deep boots? It's a full ninety minute. Production and it is really top notch the other phenomenal production. which you can see for free is called the choir Of Man I was very skeptical about the show. Went in had a great time. Incredible talents phenomenal voices. reimagining the songs that we all know. Lots of contemporary tapper songs really beautiful story so those are all included within your completely and utterly free to go to and I definitely strongly recommend you go and see the big production shows. The second thing is there is a huge amount of live music around the ship that again is all included within your fair. The first of those one of the most popular is in the cavern club. This recreating the Liverpool Club where the Beatles were founded and there's a Beatles tribute band and that play in here twice a night and they cover all the greatest hits from different phases during their career. It's hugely popular and really good fun. ANAEROBIC Beatles fan but had a great each time in there with this band dotted around the ship. There's lots of other live music throughout the evening and the once check out our in the district Brew House they they have a Singapore to sing alongs in the sugar cane Morita Latin music but a dancing. And then you have a house band entertaining in the different lounges. Just around the ship and in the main atrium the actual music is completely free. If you WANNA have a drink while you watch you pay for your drinks but the live music completely free and included you can also then for free go and have a great evening of comedy so in the Social Club they they have a comedian on various times during the night and the late evening that becomes the nightclubs. He can laugh your head off and dance the night away until really late again and if you want something to drink you pay for that but the actual entertainment the DJ and the comedy completely free access to pretty much. All the facilities on board is included. Clued there a couple of exceptions but one of the things that is included. That is phenomenal. Is The waterpark. There's two water parks one which is for adults and people of all ages and then as a kids Akwa Park in the adults park. You have to multi-storey high thrill rides the first of which is called the the Akwa. Racer these are Tanimoto slides and then you have ocean loops which extend right Outta the side of the ship. You wish of the side of the ship and you go through a double double loop down on the pool deck. You have the kids Akwa area where there's lots of cascading water and lots of fun for the kids get of course. The use of the pool is all included within the fair. But the waterpark one hundred percent included the fifth thing you can do for free. Just go and watch the go kart the speedway that way. If you want to take part in a go kart you do have to pay for that but you can go and watch the thrills and perhaps the spills up on the two level go kart race track crack. The uncle speedway it's larger than the ones on the other ships of a similar size. There's a great viewing area right in the middle of the track and it really is huge amount of fun one. If you want to go on the go carts do pay. It's at the time recording. It was nine ninety five four one circuit. You can also buy a day pass or a entire Haya cruise along party which gives you unlimited rides. So a day pass was twenty nine ninety five per person and it was just under two hundred dollars for a full weekly pass Oss. If you're into laser tag there is an open air course. which is the lost city of Atlantis? And you do have to pay to take part in that again. It's around about nine hundred five five per person for a game and you can buy weekly and day passes to play laser tag. There's no way that you can actually watch that particular activity activity. You're also head down to Galaxy Pavilion and watch people. On the simulator is these are sort of multidimensional forty rides so people are wearing the virtual reality goggles. You can go watch. People take part in these various activities. If you do want to go any of the rise that does include extra cost being silly go down and look at everyone making themselves sometimes on those particular rides also that there is a video arcade which again is a pay per play. This is a great space. And there's lots lots of things to do here but again you can what we were playing. But you can't take part without paying the critical thing to do in terms of all those activities which I would strongly recommend you do is go and watch the speedway encore and the various racist. It's really good fun. The good news is that full free other words included. Within your fair you can eat eat for twenty four hours of the day now. There's a couple of key dining options that are included within your face so you have three main dining rooms which accord taste. Say That and the Manhattan Room. They all have the same menu so it really depends on which of the decor or the venues. You prefer breakfast lunch or dinner and these are very beautiful rooms and you can go in there and have a full multicourse meals. The other restaurant which is included within your fair is the garden Jordan cafe which is the buffet restaurant. I relied us as a buffet restaurant. They had all sorts of different stations. For example at lunchtime you could have a stir fries you can have a past the station. There will be a pizza station to be a burger station and again breakfast. You'd have all sorts of different types of stations. There have lots of desserts and you can have huge amounts of food up there in the gone. Kevin that tends to be open for breakfast lunch and dinner. You'll only find though at some parts of the day you can go up and get some free teas and coffees juices and various snacks. All the specialty restaurants. You do have to pay extra to go to and there are a lot of them however there is one of the special restaurants that is included within your fair and that's the local local has comfort food. So you've got hamburgers hotdogs efficient chips and this is a great space to go. It's open twenty four hours a day. You can have comfort food getting you pay. If you have drinks you're GONNA have to pay for your drinks and and it's ridic- great location and you can look down onto the my nature him at rate meaning point but that is all included within your everything else. There is some charges so for for example in room service. You do pay a service fee which at the time a recording was seven dollars ninety five per order if you want to go to any of the special ed to restaurants of which there are at least nine of them or you want to go to any of the other food and beverage outlets like the starbucks bake shop or the ice ice cream shop. You do pay to go to those so the free things are your main dining rooms the buffet and the local the next one is great. Particularly sleep for parents or multi generational families travel together. Is You can leave the kids to play all day be looked after all day. And that's only could the fit so it's free. They have three phenomenal kids clubs and these really are huge big space and they can cope with hundreds of kids in the peak season and so for example at the peak time like Thanksgiving they could have literally almost a thousand kids being looked after by these various kids clubs. So the key ones that that you need to know about our first of all guppies guppies is a largely unsupervised space for very young toddlers where parents can go and play with their toddlers and there's all sorts of things to do that the next one which is one of the most important ones of all and the most popular ones of all and the biggest of all is called the splash academy it's not water's just to nine. This is where kids from three up to twelve will be able to go and play and the divided into different age groups. Then you have entourages which is for the teenagers so that's from thirty up till seventeen. That's only within the fair and your kids can spend all day the only thing you would pay for the main kids club the splash academy that closes at lunchtime for an hour and a close in the evening for an hour. Now if you want to kids on Portes to be supervised visor and taken to meals your pay the time recording six dollars for lunch six dollars for dinner so the great news is as a parent you could go on an excursion and your kids would be supervise and you'd literally paying six dollars but the actual supervision out of mealtimes totally free included within the fair after talking about the ability to each twenty four arouse a day and the huge amount of food options.

You can really really exercise and burn off any of those extra calories to then go back to your twenty four eating also on board. There is running track around near the pool deck as well so again you can exercise all included within your
Online spending on track to hit a new record this holiday season
"It's been a record record couple days for online shopping and just a few hours left in Cyber Monday. Retailer seemed poised for another big hall. Let's get to Courtney Reagan with the big numbers behind one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Hey Courtney Hey Melissa. So I'm here at one of Walmart's fulfilment campuses. This is actually one of six that is working to fulfill all of those online line orders. That are coming in on cyber Monday. Walmart does expect that today may end up being one of if not its biggest day of the year for those online orders and so far some of their bestsellers include the apple. Air Pods that INSTA- pot. Apparently not everybody has one of those yet the Ninja Air Fryer the video fifty five inch TV and the Nintendo switch but in total beyond just Walmart Dot Com. The National Retail Federation does expect the sixty nine million Americans will shop at some point today. you mentioned those records. Adobe is expecting this days sales to grow out twenty percent over last year to hit nine point four billion dollars. And that's on top of the records Kurds. That were already set online for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. But what's interesting. Is there still a lot of shopping. That's going to be left done tonight. Remember ever in the old days when you had to get to work to use the high speed internet on your desktop computers. That's what we saw pete sales much earlier in the day during work hours. Now it's much later at at night. The golden hours adobe expects will be between seven and eleven. PM Pacific Time. So that's ten PM here on the East Coast. Once the kids are in bed and all the chores are done. That's when they think the shopping will get started now. Of course we are getting some preliminary data for how things have been shaping up online edison trends at least analyzed. It's about three hundred thousand transactions from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. They say that Nordstrom has actually seeing the biggest increase in customer spending online compared compared to last year with a sixty percent jump Walmart close behind with fifty three percent in the Amazon with forty nine percent target however and J. C. Penney those spending online numbers from these transactions samples fell about twelve and fourteen percent respectively. We still have an awful lot of shopping and time left to go and we know we still have a decent season left even though it is six days at shorter. So be careful when you're ordering online and you're looking at the shipping dates just a little bio buyer irby wear for Meteo beco- view of all. Right thanks for the tip. Courtney Reagan What are you doing over there? He is your modem on the Fritz on this one of those people to coordinate when when you go to the work for the high speed Internet. I'm one of the. That's what you're doing is doing right now answering your question if you WanNa have a conversation about retail. I can do that as well very much. Still by eight track tape players hundred percent should say that retail looked the trades are interesting Cosco reports on December twelve. It's had a huge run but now valuations traits it thirty two times next year's numbers we've been both China Carter. Braxton worth through appears every Friday on the options action which would back this this Friday after being usurped this past week by the holiday he talked about this for the last six months. He's been correct. I think you've got to sell it into earnings target catching up the Walmart art finally on Valuation But Walmart at Twenty three times which is sort of the benchmark for everything in my opinion is just too expensive in this environment one thing. I don't know if we break out. His is buy online. Pick up in store which I think is a really a difference. It's a very big difference right and and you invariably by something else when you're there right so That's one interesting part. I think you know target sighted a number of other ones do. I think there's GonNa be retail winners here. We've seen some of the ones is that don't work right. I don't know if macy's can turn it around I think I'm not optimistic on that one. But I do think that I do think Nordstrom has a much better chance as a much better chance and even though the socks more expensive. I'd rather be in a Nordstrom macy's both of those stocks extreme streaming serenely high interest percent about. Yes we just got numbers Nordstrom and they were fine although if you look again they're they're they're full price versus their offer Akwa their sale price two very different stories perpetuating the story they get a little boost out of their New York flagship store adding some some gross margin. But when you look at target and Walmart I would go back to those. Because I think they've been such great stocks people own over the last twelve months but The relative victory that Delta in their online sales growth has been so extraordinary and so price. I stand in so much the part I think if people said when they said guess what targets not going to Amazon and that's exactly part of why the stock has done so well so hard for me to say that that's not in the price. I think the bar for both of those folks into this holiday season is very very high. Amazon has been targeted or Walmart. Well no it has. I mean listen you know I think at the end of the day import remember that Amazon while they get about fifty percent of the online sales growth that exists out. There you know. Online sales are still ten percent or less of the total five trillion earliest of US consumer sales. So there's plenty I think that's why Amazon is kind of stalled here. Some of these guys have made some really good progress. They made investments over the last couple of years. That took some time to kind in a bear out and they're starting to do that. I'll just say one name to keep an eye on home. Depot had that gap after earnings a couple of weeks ago and it kept going I think about nine and a half percent peak to trough decline started bounce last week a little bit look pretty good technically coming off of a trend line that thing turn lower keep an eye on that one because I just think that there's a lot of concentration in some of these mega. Ah Big big box names and these home improvement stocks that have really outperform but if you look at the X.. RT which is a broader look at all of retail it's ten percent of the year really underperforming the SNP. So I want to keep an eye on some of these other ones. That are very crowded and I think guys Costco the way it reacts to earnings guidance will be very important for the weed tells me
Tony Black Discusses the Jockey Club Gold Cub
"The I have is a Tasmanian she's winning for that state that from at Belmont at without in October of sixty three so I think that's what it must've been construction between the swapped day just to accommodate the construction at one track or the it was four years I it took it took I think four years either was it four years for Aquidneck three years for me and it was it was an extended period yeah I mean absolutely and here on this look at this picture and I'm thinking I just saw joey. NBC Son of the bride farm the originator proprietor his dad and we all the kid goes not too long ago I was at parks and I saw Joey cheesy the sun you know and I said Joe who used to train for your cat burglar Joe Murga they use the net burglar and this was no reflection on his his way of doing business but it was just become at Ryan they would say burglar his business my uncle a lot the nitwits Tasma was a really nice silly sure was and he e I got a picture of her because my uncle had some stuff he was going through and I just wanted to have pictures of my uncle because he wrote up to sixty seven started in forty eight ended in sixty seven and we started walking that taking that stroll down them relate has even mentioned rock rushed and I wrote Rod Roger a couple of times and then I got hurt never low after that but I wrote him and his main race and in his a other than allowance race and then he tried bolt net day with me but he was just learning how to bulk I guess because he really the record aero and he looked like there was no way was gonNA recover that day when when he balked at it the quarter pole independent Serbian an angel guiding back and hand and got his mind back on run and he still won the Derby in spite of giving up the lead at the head of the laying but it's really interesting guys are talking because you come up with so many interesting facts and they just sparks a lot of memories in a and I've got it here Tony the the nineteen sixty his first one Kelso at Akwa the slop actually and then came back at sixty one at acqueduct sixty two was they were able to run at Belmont and then sixty three the at sixty four were back Akwa duct and that's what this Joe Tasma was at accurate up and it was sixty three the mazing how racing the game has adjusted at times when it had to go through transitions and and construction we take a lot of that for Grad I think it's it's a great sport and a course in the forties fifties and sixties I was introduced just do it in the fifties late fifties I realized my uncle was a jockey you know Gordon fifty-one by fifty nine I really started knowing what being jockey was is in in it's an amazing sport in and it was as a kid I can remember going to school and you I second-grade teacher would say to you when you walk in the room jump who do yesterday garden state with Ryan the Tommy Roberts on the radio and sure to feed your from garden state it is but it had so much more exposed back then and it was just needs to be a little kid and your uncle was the jockey and you go to school in second grade teacher him or her out Sam do yesterday it was just really visit was a great area to grow up in being a garden state we've lived around here and I was born uncle lived right down the street and every time I go to

"We didn't have to go out and kind of rely on anything that was like super seasonal or cetera. And this was really helpful for us. So talking about the growth face. Biggest mistake we made there. And this is probably the biggest mistake we made overall in something that's relevant to a conversation. That was just add up here. So we just charge too little for our product as you can see like our revenue was growing. It was going up things. We're looking good. But it's really easy to say to yourself. This is my first few customers, I'm going to give them a discount because I'm going to get a lot of feedback from them. And then they introduce you to some other customers, so you give them the same price. And then all of a sudden it's too late to raise your prices. You do raise your prices to eight for the business, but we did a couple of things. Well in this phase as well. We showed up at every industry event, which we want awards, and we made a lot of friends with our competitors. And this generated a whole bunch of hype. Or at least like enthusiasm people knew our names, and this was really helpful to us when we had to go out and sell the business later. So I highly recommend doing that. And then keep in touch with those people. So we send out a monthly Email. We're just pretty open and transparent with how we were doing. And that actually we got a lot of leads from people who we thought were competitors. And actually ended up being being sort of helpful on our journey. And then finally the shutdown or get acquired viz this happened last year. And I think the biggest mistake we made here is we just underestimated how long this takes it is really painful decide decide right away. If you're open to Akwa hires because every big if you have a couple engineers like every big company wants to talk to you. And they're just gonna wait to your time. And if you're not even open to it don't waste your time on that. And also don't try to do it with a two month old, which is what I tried like a terrible time to sell a company if you are going to do it though run like a really tight emanate process like a fundraiser just trust that your product will get you offers at the end of the day. So what we did is we created to diligence rooms we had a diligence room that had like our top level metrics that were available to basically anybody who asked if you said like I have some interest in your company, we just gave them that. And then we had a further diligence room with all of our numbers. All of our metrics, everything all the everything we spent, and if you gave us mellow why certain date that we gave you access to that. And then we had a hard deadline where he said offers due on this date. And that was really scary. Because we basically didn't think that we would get any offers. But you just have to have trust trust in what you've built and set that deadline because if you don't people drag on the conversation, all of a sudden, you're totally out of time and outta runway.
