The Future of Ecstasy Plus Therapy for PTSD
"We have staff writer and editor kelly cervix. She's here to talk about the future of md m a this is a controlled. Substance sometimes called ecstasy or molly that has had some success in clinical trials for ptsd alongside talk therapy. Okay kelly how you doing. I'm doing okay. How are you sarah. Good i'm good. Let's start with the recent clinical trial results of md m. a. and therapy that was tested on. Ptsd patients. how did that go. How did that work. So there were ninety people in this study who were revised to get kind of a unique course of psychotherapy. They had a series of preparatory sessions with a trained therapist and then they got three eight hour long experimental sessions where they got either. Md ama or a placebo and then they got this series of sort of integration sessions to process that experience and the results were that two months after the last experimental session the difference between the drug and the placebo groups was pretty clear. Sixty seven percent of the participants who got md may no longer met the diagnostic criteria for ptsd at that point compared with thirty two percent of those who got placebo so this is sort of the the biggest and most thorough study of its kind to really find potential benefits of this drug in ptsd. What are the effects of this drug and people. I think maybe from popular culture people might think of it as something you take in a nightclub. Yeah this has definitely a reputation of a club drug that. I think that these investigators are really trying to overcome and may have a lot of complicated mechanisms and we don't understand all of them but it's thought that many of its effects come from its ability to increase certain neuro transmitters in the brain including dopamine and serotonin and so people sometimes described euphoric experience. Sometimes a sense of openness and sort of a heightened ability for empathy and you can imagine that something that in the case of ptsd therapists might aimed to exploit if a trauma survivors facing intrusive flashbacks in israeli avoiding these disturbing memories of something that happened to them. This drug might give them sort of less. Fearful less judgmental state in which to reflect on and process. What happened to them. That's the

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine
European Medicines Agency Finds AstraZeneca Vaccine Safe And Effective
"The committee has come to a clear scientific conclusion. This is a safe and effective vaccine. It benefits in protecting people from covid nineteen with the associated risks from death and hospitalization outweigh the possible risks. That was the head of the european medicines agency. Talking about the astrazeneca vaccine yesterday earlier. This week several european countries suspended the use of the vaccine due to isolate a reports of blood clots so gideon. What does this announcement from. The amine It is a tricky situation over there. So the positives came as several countries in europe dealing with a new surge of cases so there was a lot of urgency and figuring this out really quickly and now the ama has repeated their sense that the vaccine is safe as we heard there but reportedly they're also going to add a warning label to the shot so the medical community can be on the lookout for potential rare complications. They basically reviewed millions of cases they said and found that there was not an increased risk of the clots but this appears to be a precautionary measure given that some of the cases were deadly. They did confirm a small amount of dangerous cases though it's not inclusive whether they were actually related to the vaccine
Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical
Help! My Face is Aging Asymmetrically
"Hi can door love the pod. I'm writing because i'm territory manager for about four years and spend a lot of time in my car driving between many locations like many of us dudakovic. I had not seen photos of myself in quite some time until this weekend in the photo i notice the left side of my face. Driver's side is starting to droop. Slash age more quicker than my right side and it was very noticeable to me. Compared to photos pre covid been working out in the field during this pandemic. I do wear sunscreen. Every day in the summer. I will admit i need to be better during winter. But i'm curious if you have any advice or product rex when only one side slash part of your face slash body is aging faster than the rest realistically. I will be in this job real for at least another few years and only thirty years old any advice would be appreciated. Hope you have a great week. Okay so dory. What are your thoughts. Well i have noticed that. I have more Freckles slash age spots on the left side of my face. ama- driver's side. Yes i am. Also someone who wear sunscreen religiously. But i have noticed this and i'm assuming that that is the cause okay so i had a couple of thoughts one is you said droopy and i wasn't totally sure what you meant but it also made me wonder. Are you sleeping on that side. Because i'd be curious to hear what happens when you start sleeping on your back which is hard if you're not a back sleeper. But it sounds like you might be aside sleeper on your left side. So i can cause the face vaccine caused the face drooping so it might not be just a car. That was my first thought. My second thought is wear sunscreen in the winter where all year round. Don't just wear it in the summer. It should be part of your morning. Skin care routine and you should reapply it throughout the day multiple times. A day ashley since you're in the car so much but don't keep it in the car because it's sensitive to heat. So keep it. In your bag and reapply it. Maybe maybe like every time you get out of the car and get back into the car. Maybe when you get back into the car. You're like okay. Reapply sunscreen keep a powder to power. That's a good idea because that you could keep the car presumably. Yes i like that kate.

Overwatch League Releases New Format, Schedule for 2021
"Quite a few changes for the league that likely at the toughest twenty-twenty seeing multiple players retire in entire roster is being dropped to cut costs and stagnant viewership while the o w l sister lead. The CDL has actually just kicked off the o w l won't start up until April 16th the goal I think was way out ahead of the covid-19 demek and what we won't be entirely Out of the Woods by April things are actually trending pretty quickly in the right direction. Thank God still the owner of the wall is putting forth a hybrid format that can be played online or in physical locations first off instead of a regular season format like traditional Sports b o w l will be following the CDL into a more tournament based regular-season structure. The structure will feature three weeks of qualifiers, then a mid-season tournament repeated 4 times. So to make that more clear the weekends of April 16th, April 23rd, and April 29th will be the first qualifiers then the first name Tournament will be the main melee on May 7th that schedule repeats through May June July and August. Each tournament has kind of a silly name may may lay is fine. Even if it's a little bit hard to say. Some people might assume to Smash Bros event. There's also the summer Showdown and the countdown cup which are both solid alliterations will give you that but they really Force the alliteration with the June just like white jesting. I don't think it makes sense names aside. This format will likely be easier to follow for fans on YouTube you sports events do well when they crowned some sort of champion at the end of it. Only League of Legends has really been successful creating a regular season format in Esports the c d l o w l and even our LCS have all abandoned their attempts to do so in the last one or two years this year will also see three Western o w l teams competed in Asia the Valiant fusion and New York Excelsior are all moving operations to Asia for this year that brings the divisions to 8 Eastern teams and 12 Western ones. Mid-season tournament will feature both East and West teams, they will start online but will actually compete in Hawaii once they're able to resume safely talk to UAB. I do renounce any critiques of the o w l if you invite me to a mid-season tournament in Hawaii, but I reserve the right to make fun of the name June just I'm just putting that out there right now. And the last thing to talk about with the new schedule is the price full up. Once again this year crossing the song million dollar Mark over all events Grand Champions will get a share of one point five million. But with the o w l the price still feels kind of weird, right like every team paid at least twenty million dollars in often month to even compete in this league at all. Sure splitting for a million is nice but teamed invested a whole lot more to even be in the league having a chance to win a mill back feels different from prizes and leagues that don't cost money millions of dollars to enter But ultimately the o w l can still be successful. Even if it's been pretty Doom and Gloom for a while now, they just have to keep growing in China last year a be reported in ama of birth. 1 million viewers for the playoffs the majority of which are in China. It's basically the Golden Goose for Esports if alley can remain popular in China, they could continue to exist on that alone and it'll be a crucial years so w l that's for
"ama" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Podcast. I'm your host sean carroll. As probably most of you know this ama is something we do almost every month. I don't do it at the end of december. Because i take the holidays off but every other month eleven times a year. We do something where patrons that essay supporters of mindscape on patron can ask me questions. They leave questions in the comments of a post. I put up on patron only cost one dollar per episode to be a patriot supporter and try to answer as many of them as i can and the patrons are the ones who suggested that going forward. We should make the answers. That is the episode. You're listening to right now public domain. So that is what we're doing so this is available a little while after the patrons get it gets released into the wild and anyone can listen I noticed that over the past couple of months. There have been an increase in the number of patrons knocking. Are you about that. And also of course we skipped last month doing the ama so as a result. We got a lot of questions this month. I think ordinarily the numbers around one hundred and this month it's closer to under seventy five hundred and eighty something like that and so it does become difficult for me to answer all the questions in a reasonable period of time. And i really want to do that so for this one. I did it you know. I just answered all the questions that i got. I did try to make the answers a little shorter than they usually would be. I reigned in mind natural inclinations. Just go on a great length on somewhat tangential topics so going forward if we continue to grow and they're contained to be more Questions asked ama's we can contemplate different strategies for what to do about that a strategy of just continuing to answer. Every question is going to be harder so for the people who support patriotic out there. If you want to leave comments about what do you prefer. You prefer just answer some subset of the questions. The first hundred questions The best hundred questions. A random hundred questions. Should i answer even fewer questions but at greater length pick the questions. I really think. Allow me to say interesting things rather than some of the questions. I have to say like no i can't i can't i don't know the answer to that. These are all possible ways going forward. I mean with the constraint. That i don't want the ama's to go on too much longer than three hours. I'm pretty open to what the strategy should be anyway. We did get a lot of questions this month. You've got some really good questions. So let's go. Peter benham.

Those two nations styles have been consistent with that on display in past campaigns. Russian disinformation has been negative and disruptive concentrating on producing red meat conspiracy theories about the capitol hill riot. Chinese disinformation has been characteristically positive. That is not positive in the sense of or optimistic but positive in the sense of persuading its international audience of a particular position more accurately two positions.

Protection of Personal Data in Blockchain Technology
"Zor. Res- asks what do you think about. Privacy designed blockchain so. It's kind of interesting because these blockchain's are sort of under attack. I guess you could say from regulation right now. A melted mirrors actually talked about this in the episode that he did with her and lynn alton Where she said that. That's kind of the main thing she'll be looking out for twenty twenty one and i think You know we at this moment that i'm recording this. We only have rumors about what type of regulation it was that Treasury secretary steve mnuchin wanted to put on crypto right. Now because i think actually you privacy coins were in the crosshairs and this was something night. Jessie liu who came on unconfirmed talked about She was the what was it. Former attorney for dc. She's prosecuted a ton of cases are around some of the biggest ones involving illegal. Use bitcoin and via actor state actors like north korea or by the child porn website in in korea. Welcome to video. And and some of the other big criminals like terrorists and stuff and weight point. Is she highlighted by a something that she was noticing in. I can't remember it was the dot enforcement framework actually and I do think you know this is going to be something that comes up again because brian brooks the action control of the currency. Also kind of you know. When i asked him about what how he thought the. Us might regulate privacy. He said oh well you know the. Us is different from other countries because we're We're the victims of terrorism or or were subject to terrorism or something like that and he said that he thought people would be willing to make a trade off for that. Which i thought was very interesting. A really was curious to know what the crypt communities reaction was to that comment. But yeah so. I think we're going to see that kind of come up as a battle and i actually. I would be surprised. If in the end there wasn't some way to have Blockchain side feature privacy prominently because in a way. I can't imagine the technology really taking off in all the ways that it could take off if there wasn't such a feature and you even see that like in a forthcoming episode. I have unconfirmed. It's a panel discussion but there is somebody from the federal reserve who talks about building systems for central bank digital currencies. Who says you know flat out like you can't design these systems unless you have privacy you as a consideration from the beginning he said it cannot be an afterthought and and he's talking about for central bank digital currency so. I really do think that you'd at least some of these vaccines will have to feature it prominently and i. I don't think that we're going to end up with blockchain set it at all. I would be surprised on a long enough time scale. I do think in the in the beginning. There might be a bit of a battle. But i think after we got real adoption then i would be very surprised if we don't start to see more privacy
The Game Awards Sees Huge Viewership Growth Once Again in 2020
"Right. So first some stats released by The Game Awards this morning on their viewership for the twenty-twenty show. They saw $83 million total live streams with a peek of 8.3 million concurrent viewers. That's an eighty four percent growth on the 2019 broadcast every year the show has been growing rapidly in 2017. The total viewership was eleven point five million. So the game awards has seen an increase of seventy one point five million unique viewers over the last three years, but we do have to qualify these numbers comparing live streaming numbers two numbers from TV broadcast. Is how we ended up with bad stats like League of Legends has more viewers than the Superbowl they don't and they still don't but you could find the CNBC article claiming that they do on Google. They haven't taken it down. I don't know why the problem is that it's an apples to oranges comparison. When you compare unique live streaming viewers to TV ratings, which require consistent viewing. That's why the major Esports developers have brought Nielsen's am a stat to quantify their viewership right against World son AMA of twenty-three million. That's great. The Superbowl is around a hundred million. It's not closed but it's still really impressive when we don't have a m a a better comparison to TV ratings are pecan currents. But even that number is going to be higher than a TV rating because that's based on an average audience not on the top total audience wage. So with those qualifications in place and I am not saying the game awards are bigger than any of the he got family. It feels like it's getting close the Emmys and the tone. He's presenting Awards and wage. TV and Broadway respectively are the two least watched award shows with 5.1 million viewers for the Emmys and five point five million viewers for the Tony's in 2019 the Grammys and the Oscars are on another level above music's Grammys saw viewership of 16.5 million and Hollywood's Oscars were at twenty three point six million in 2019. So how's the game awards have a way to go but this is a broadcast first created in 2014. The Oscars have been around since nineteen twenty-nine the Tonys Grammys and Emmys were all created for a 1960 as well. So it's safe to say they had a bit of a head start with the crazy increase in viewership year-over-year and the way the game awards has embraced KO streaming. It's the only one of these award shows on a growth trajectory. Now again until the game awards Embraces am a stats. We won't be able to directly compare but one comparison we can make is the total industry the two biggest dog. Shows my viewership are in music and film video games are a bigger total industry than music and film combined. It sounds crazy. But it's true. The game awards is quickly becoming to go to a commercial for this massive industry and big stars are beginning to appear at it. Always a good step forward give it another five years and we might have to add another letter to he got
Diabetes Mellitus with Dr. Dennis Bruemmer
"Take hardy and hurts summit clear so excited for this installment of our cardiovascular prevention series with the deep dive into diabetes. Which i think you'll learn by the end of the episode is so important for us. Be attention to. We're joined by a phenomenal and true. Genuine in the field. Dr dennis brumer hughes. The director of the center for cardia met about health in the section of preventive cardiology and rehabilitation. At the cleveland clinic. Dr boomer earned his md and degrees from the university of hamburg in germany following residency training in internal medicine and cardiology in berlin docker boomer completed a research fellowship as the diabetes center fellow in the department at ucla. He is board certified in internal medicine and chronology hardy vascular disease and cardiac graffiti quite a unique combination. Dr boomers research is focused on mechanisms of atherosclerosis and risk factor intervention for the prevention of coronary artery disease soccer. It's such a pleasure to invite you to the show success. have you on. And as i invite you. I'm going to just reflect on your unique training path and we were just discussing before we started recording. Here that there's going to be a probably a lot of interest. In pursuing some sort of combined die batali cardiovascular education for court in the future. But would you mind just telling us how you got interested in really devoting yourself to cardio metabolic disease and diabetes in general. Absolutely am so first of all i. I'm super thrilled to be here. And i i'm so excited to be talking to the nerds here tonight so i. I think it's phenomenal. What you guys are doing and again. I very much appreciate the opportunity here so so i was. I'm kind of bridge between endocrinology in cardiology back in germany. I did my thesis. Actually in endocrinology lie protein metabolism. And that kind of got me interested in cardiology. I went to pursue cardiology training back in germany and then research fellowship at ucla. I was supposed to go back after that to germany. But i decided to stay and then obviously being a foreign Repeated training and i was always torn between the endocrine in preventive cardiology aspect than truecar ideologies. So i ultimately decided. I'm just gonna do both so. I did endocrinology fellowship and cardiologist fellowship by the university of kentucky. I had a phenomenal time. There and kind of still even now much of what we do in cardiology is really prevention. And that much of it. This endocrinology so i think these sub specialties really are complementary in or very closely together but let me say on behalf of everyone here at the clinic. How glad we are that. You decided not to go back and stayed here. Join us over here as a faculty because you've just added tremendous value to the program and you've been such an incredible resource for all of us. Thank you for being here. Yes dr burin. And i extend that thank you. Because you know you've stayed here. We are talking to the nerds. I think this is a totally fortunate. And i am really happy to benefit from your stay here now. We are very excited to dive into cardio dive tallahassee which begs the question dr boomer we are cardio nerds why should cardiologists focus on diabetes. I mean why not. Just refer are diabetic patients to endocrinologist or leave the to their primary care doctors. Yeah i think. I think that's kind of the common theme and that is the current care. We leave it to others in cardiology. Now i think that is sub optimal. I think we as cardiologists we see these patients all the time i mean when is ever a patient. In the cath. Lab that presents with an semi or stemming that doesn't have diabetes so we do see the far spectrum of this disease of cardiovascular complications that arise of having ama- diagnosis of diabetes. So i think we have to be involved in managing this. I think to a minimum. We should referred patients to primary care or make sure that the diabetes is. What managed or console endocrinology now as as we all know as physicians quite frequently. Not even that happens so and there's good evidence for that if you look at registries just about six percent of diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease actually get appropriate care for their diabetes and cardiovascular conditions as you know that vitas says associated with the two to four fold increase in risk it is a cardiovascular risk equivalent termed many many years ago seventy percent of our acute coronary syndrome patients have diabetes. So you you could argue. Yes we leave it to primary care but or the endocrinologist but keep in mind that endocrinologists currently see about five percent of the patient population with diabetes.
"ama" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Over and above the physics of things he stipulated that abstraction must have causal power because the software the governs behavior can be platform independent pearl. Said he didn't think about it in top down terms as an engineer. He was more interested in the clash between the two levels of description as a means to programming into a robot. I would like to probe your philosophy around this area of emergency downward causation. Their relation to artificial intelligence and consciousness. So that's not really an ama question or yeah. That's like a whole several podcasts. Worth of discussion. You know roughly speaking I don't like the idea downward causation. i think that it is over. Used to simplify things while to to cheat around some things that could be better described in other terms. I don't even really like upward causation. A sense. I think that you know if you have levels of description of reality there's a level where it's all quantum field theory level where it's chemistry and molecules level where its people and and planets and chairs and tables I i don't think personally about the relationships between those different levels as being causal ones. I think if you have a well-defined level. Causal efficacy happens within the level not between different levels. There are other relationships between the levels. You could have super beanies relations. You could have explanatory. Relations core screening relations and things like that emergence relations obviously. But i don't think the as is the right way to think about it. Not in the sense of you know 'cause it affect that the pearl would ever care about so that's the very short version. There's subtleties there. Lots to think about my own ideas are not completely settled. But that's that's the short version. Okay the last question for this long. Ama is clint ottmar. In light of the covid vaccine coming out soon will you be one of the first in line to get one or will you wait some period of time to see if there are any side effects and if you do wait how long That's a good question important..

"Supporters get to Ask questions for the monthly ama and they voted to release the answers to the general public. So we sort of tentatively. Did that have hardly a few months ago on youtube But it wasn't really quite part of the regular podcast. Feed last month. Was the first time we did it for for real on the podcast feed and so the good news is that got a few more patriot. Supporters all of whom want to ask ama questions which is great so we have some new listeners here and this is the first..
Riot Games Reports League of Legends Worlds Viewership for 2020
"No secret that League of Legends world's is the most watch E sports event every year but the absolute massive gap between worlds and other events is all staggering to see this morning right games reported an average minute audience or AMA of twenty-three million as an increase of about 1.2 million / 2019. They also reported a peek concurrent viewership of forty six million viewers and over 1 billion total hours watch over the entire course of the tournament e Sports viewership can be confusing to track given the difference between a streaming platforms track viewers and how TV networks do so. So Riot and Activision Blizzard brought in Nielsen to provide the average minute audience or am a stack the stat is directly comparable to other he's dead. Events who use AMA and to traditional sports events and their TV ratings any sports Activision Blizzard's announced AMA for the OverWatch League finals was 2.9 Million globally. That's just a little bit over 10% of what world's received. It's no wonder o w l team owners are in conversations to get partial refunds from a Beyond those lofty team by ends, but worlds was also higher than most traditional sports events as well. The 2020 MLB World Series saw an average of about ten million viewers per game. So about half of League of Legends world. The NBA finals were even worse averaging about 7 and 1/2 hours per game. It should be said that the World Series was in line with previous historical averages while the 2020 NBA Finals was an anomaly only seeing about half of the viewership. We saw over the five finals before it off other events of League of Legends world's beat included the NHL finals, which was at two million viewers and gulps the Masters at about six million viewers. There are only a small handful of sporting events drawing more viewers than League of Legends at home. Point Wimbledon Tennis is about 28 million viewers the Superbowl sits around a hundred million viewers every year and then the Champions League finals which neared five hundred million viewers back in 2019. I believe a bunch of other soccer events are probably over that number as well, but I didn't go through all the regional leagues. This does not include events that happen every four years like the Olympics the soccer World Cup or the Cricket World Cup, which are all well overly of Legends as well. Still you can see why league is attracted so much attention and brought in so many Brands. It's in really lofty company with numbers like this. It's all first episode of the Esports minute. If you want more Esports content, we publish a new episode of the game or hour or Chris pocket interviews former NFL running back Arian Foster. A lot of fantasy football fans will remember when Arian Foster broke onto the scene with a couple record-setting years back in the early part of this decade.
Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK
"Well. Biontech and pfizer's landmark coronavirus vaccine has been given to the first person in the uk as part of a mass immunization program. The uk's vaccine roll it is being watched keenly across the rest of the world has other countries begin. Prepare to vaccinate their own populations for the latest on this. Let's talk to our health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith. Chris is also consultant for all the gist at cambridge university. I good afternoon. Chris tyler so i guess So far so good at least we have. We have a soundbite already. We had at the top of the program from this ninety year old woman. Who's been there the first to be to vaccinated chris last week. We saw a little bit of Chest thumping on the part of some politicians the uk saying look. This is great The uk is steaming ahead. How eagerly he would you say not. Just the immediate neighbors across this side of the channel but around the world are going to be watching. What are they going to watching. Forty you think over the coming days and weeks as this rolls out well think it will be a confidence boost to those other countries because no one likes to be i they unless it's a shorty. A dead cert. There's always some risk with any kind of intervention. And this is no different. So having a regulator a regulator that's world renowned the jewelry the medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency. Which is the. Uk's regulator which prior to just having jurisdiction over the uk walls prior to the brexit transition kicking providing that service for the whole of europe. Now europe does that through the ama it. It gives a precedent that other countries can look to and say right. Okay one fairly ferry. Big actor has gone ahead with this nathan. It's good therefore we're happy to Gives us some confidence too. So i think that there's always that aspect to it and it's coming good for the uk in the sense that it saying here we are. We've had a pretty rough time with this. But now some some fantastic triumph of sciences kicked in and we're about to start deploying this across the country and we're gonna we're gonna protect our outpatients. We have this type of approval from a respected Player how much do agencies elsewhere of course within the eu and obviously similar bodies all over the world. how much does it short circuit For them as you said. It establishes a precedent And does that mean that you have you know days or weeks then knocked off the process. Of course he. I'm sitting here in switzerland. Obviously a lot of talk as well about of course is also on the uk as well so does it actually then really prevent And and and and you do you have a moment where you have a real series of time locked off. They'd process well. The europeans are considering this through the jurisdiction of the ems the european medicines agency but the uk is still subject to a you know and in the uk is used one particular rule which is a regulation one seven four which is a specification for in public health crisis. Or emergency you can. Emergency approved something for use in your particular jurisdiction so the nhra has used that to approve this for the uk. Any other country in europe could've done the same thing so it's quite interesting that they've actually decided to white on a broad overarching decision from the a. But it doesn't matter. Who your regulator is they have to meet the same checks and balances. Because at the end of the day they all the gateway between a manufactured product and the public who going to receive it and it's on their neck that the decision rests so then going to say a will. They did it so we'll kind of ignore with this stuff would just sign it off. They are going to apply wherever they are in the world the same rigorous checks that they would apply whether or not someone else regulated something but it does help to give them confidence and he gives them a bit more political impetus when they see that. Another major regulator has taken a product which is also going to be wheeled out in that particular country and said well you know what's good enough is enough the ganda over the past few weeks. Of course astrazeneca moderna in this case. Biontech visor they. They've all been popping up in the headlines. Chris and of course various speeds that of course these approval processes have been working at now. We have three vaccines. We're we're now told her that there might also now be a fourth which is very much in play might be getting closer to approval. How different are all of these in terms of effectiveness and and do they all function largely the same way or do you. Also because obviously many countries that are hedging their purchasing all of them. Am i going to be particularly concerned. In a couple of weeks. If if i choose to get the moderna vaccine versus the astrazeneca versus the by pfizer one. In fact i think the uk has go options in on seven different vaccines and yes. You're right three of them are nearing the finishing nine in the uk but there are many others waiting in the wings around the world. There are ten different types of vaccine the work in ten different types of ways or being generated a more than forty and now in advanced stages of clinical trials. So pretty soon. We're going to have more vaccines than we can shake a stick at up to a point. That's a good thing and it's a good thing because not vaccines are going to be suitable for all people not vaccines are going to be available to all people not vaccines are going to work in all territories and what i mean by. That is if we take the fiso vaccine as an example. This needs to be kept at minus seventy degrees until five days or so before you're going to use all nine hundred and seventy five doses that are in batch and i've just seen a letter go from medical director saying can we make sure that we we use all nine hundred seventy five days in a within the five days so that we don't waste any of this very precious vaccine. Now that's going to be no use whatsoever in some countries where they don't even have a stable. Electricity supply let alone a stable minus eighty degrees freezer. So therefore having lots of options is a powerful thing also We don't know what the long term outcomes with these vaccines against be. We know that they provide pretty high level of protection but short after the vaccination program is finished in other words in in the weeks to a month or so. The person's completed the vaccine course. They're protected with the fis vaccine to the level of about nine hundred ninety five percent. But what happens in five months. What happens in a year. we don't know. And it may well be that other products that come along are able to confer a longer term protection. They might confer a big boost if you give one of those on top of one of the other products. This is a learning process. We're going to be sort of going through this process as time goes on an. It's always good to have more options. Where this sort of things concerned. If if your project yourselves twelve months twenty four months out do you think we also end up in a place because of because of cost because of stability many other things that they're only going to be potentially to vaccines. Is that the way things often go. The other ones might be effective but they might be too expensive as you said they might be too volatile and they fall by the wayside. I so i guess what i'm getting at. Will there sort of a clear winner in all of this in terms of one of the players and obviously the concoction that that ends up within the syringe. Well it's hard to say. I mean you know it's like niels bohr. Who is the forefather of quantum mechanics. Said prediction is very difficult especially when it concerns the future. But it's it's going to be very hard to know because we don't know what the long term outcome with these agencies. They are expensive. These genetic vaccines that pfizer. Madonna offering all pricey the astra zeneca vaccine. Which is still sitting with the regulator here in the uk. At the moment that one will be much cheaper and is also much easier to deploy and store so that there are pros and cons of all these things and it may not come down to simply a case if this one does this and this one does this therefore two horse race. I think we will definitely be a market for a few of these products whether or not. That market's going to be sufficient to sustain all forty plus of the clinical trials that are going on now but but certainly while the world is rushing to get this stuff in sufficient volume. Because that's the issue at the moment the companies just can't push it out the door fast enough the moment it's any partner storm so people are desperate to access whatever vaccine they can as fast as they can and just before we go chris any sense. When you're maybe discussing with your medica- medical call leaks. What the uptake is is going to be. I was talking to a doctor at the university hospital here in zurich the other day his defense was that you know probably just within the hospital owned probably fifty percent of the staff. You know would not be interested in taking the vaccine. Is that sort of a a pretty good gauge. In terms of how the public will look at this. Or if you're not in the medical trenches all day maybe you're going to be keener to take it any any house view from your side. I'm sensing quite a degree of what we dub vaccine hesitancy based on the questions that are coming into various radio programs on participating in basic enquiries from members of the general public and if you look at the day to this come out of the pew research center in america have been running a number of population surveys in the states and originally that was very alarming showed that fifty percent of people would reject a vaccine offered one at that point in time. They recently repeated that survey found that in fact the uptake had risen to fifty from fifty to sixty percents so in other words forty percent. Turn it down. But that's still forty percent. Turn down right now in the uk. We think it's probably going to be Less than that but at the same time still a significant proportion of people are uncertain citing rapid production very rapid approval. As a reason for concern. I do think this is largely going to take care of itself though because what will happen is that because of the way in which these vaccines are being rolled out to high priority high risk groups. I with a trickle down into the younger echo lonzo society over time by the time many of the people who live in countering who is saying. I'm nervous about this. Come to be offered a vaccine. It will have actually been through a very significant proportion of other people and that may well have in still quite a bit confidence into people are safe track record by then so i think it may be one of those short term problems. The actually takes care of itself. That's what i'm hoping anyway. Chris thanks very much for that. That was monocled health and science. Dr chris smith.
Boeing 737 MAX Return to Service: Airworthiness Directive
"Big news course everybody knows by now probably is last week. The united states. Lifted the ban on the boeing seven. Three seven max. In fact this happened on november twentieth. When the fa issued a d twenty twenty dash twenty four dash to airworthiness directives. The boeing company airplanes. And what that did is that superseded the earlier airworthiness directive twenty eighteen dash twenty three fifty one which applied to all boeing company model. Seven three seven dash eight and dash nine or max airplanes. The two thousand eighteen ad required Revising certificate limitations and operating procedures of the airplane flight manually. am fm and to provide the flight. Crew with runaway horizontal stabiliser trim procedures to follow under certain conditions. So we have the new. Ad out we can Talk a little bit about Maybe overview of what it includes the actions included in the eight ad. of course. There's a revision to the seventy seven. Max flight control laws. That require imports from both. Aoa sensors in order to eight. 'em cass recalling the accident so he's just one angle of attack sensor So to a required and you need inputs from both of them. The inputs have to be compared from the two sensors and if they differ significantly than that will disable the speed trim system which includes m cass for the remainder of the flight. So what's what's the definition of differ significantly greater than five point. Five degrees for a specified period of time also only one activation of 'em cass. Percents high aoa event in also Limits the magnitude of 'em cass commands to move the horizontal stabilizer such that and this is from the such that the resulting position of the stabilizer will preserve the flight crew's ability to control the airplanes pitch by using only the control column other changes Flight control computer integrity monitor monitoring of each fcc's the flake computers performance and cross fcc monitoring which detects and stops erroneous generated stabiliser trim commands including him cass. Also the flight crews procedures are revised in the afc to Facilitate the crew's ability to recognize and respond to desired horizontal stabiliser movement and the effects of a potential a sensor failure. There's also an. Aa disagree alert to away. Sensors come up with something different. Also and this is kind of different and this is kind of the The long pole in the tent if you will of the changes that have to be made all these other changes believe our software changes that can be made with an update but there is a hardware change and this is Adequately separating certain airplane wiring and conducting an ama sensor system test and operational readiness flight on each airplane before the airplane is reintroduced into service There's also some training requirements. That are that are changed
Taylor Swift wins big at AMAs, says she's busy rerecording all of her 'old music'
"Music Awards are wrapped for 2020. Some hot performances, including the Age, defying J. Lo Rapper Meghan the Stallion and Justin Bieber, who performed a medley of songs, one that included Sean Mendez. Big winners include the Weekend and Taylor Swift and Finally, speaking of Taylor Swift posting to Social Media, some big news After a year long battle over the shocking sale of her master recordings by music Mobile Scooter Braun, Miss. Americana announcing she has been re recording all of her repertoire, telling fans, they have something to really be excited for. That's what's trending
Taylor Swift Wins Big at AMAs and Say's She's Re-Recording All of Her Songs
"Swift was the second big One is far as awards picked up. She picked up the AM A for the third year in the in the row for Artist of the year. And here she is. Thank you so much for this. This is this is a fan Voted award, which means so much to me. You guys have been beyond wonderful all the years of my career, but especially this one. When we've been so far apart. We haven't been able to see each other and concert. The sacrifice still feel really connected to you through music. And You know your reaction to folklore and all the ways in which your imagination honored that album. I just love you so much, And I'm really, really lucky because of you. Reason I'm not there tonight is, um, actually re recording all of my old music in because of the kind Oh, yeah, It's been amazing, and I can't wait. She's recording you re recording. So she positional the cattle third year in a row, right. The quick back story on the drama is that her label sent Scooter Braun, which she's been head to head with all the Masters over originals, and she said, Well, I'm going to just re record it and own it myself. Which good for her. I really do believe in that, you know, and I and I think it's important explained because you may hear like, especially older artists redo over. It's a re release of that. Why you're releasing you get the money so they can on the right stuff. So they recorded they just re recorded. It sounds exactly the same. Maybe change a couple little things. But they'd be really minor and she records her whole catalog all over again. It's like okay now now I own And so I commend her on that. But to be honest, I had no idea that I was like, why she get it. I forgot that. She released an album earlier in the year, and I think that's kind of the whole idea about Taylor. Swift people are like I forgot about you a little bit.
"ama" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Free versions of the podcast and the other is every month. We do one of these. Ama episodes asked me anything episodes so near the end of the month. I put up a post on patriot fan and anyone who's a patriot. Supporter can ask a question. And i try. Don't always succeed but i try my best to answer every question that is asked in this episode represents that so these episodes these ama recordings are published on patriae on near the end of the month. In fact this one your about to listen to if you're going to listen to. It came out at the beginning of november just before the presidential election which seems like years ago. Now but what happened is a lot of the patriot. Supporters by their own initiatives. Said it'd be better if we could. Share the results of the ama widely not just to patriot supporters so patriotic supporters will continue to get the benefit of being able to ask questions on the ama but going forward. Anyone will be able to listen to the answers. So we're gonna make it just a regular part of the mindscape feed it won't replace the regular episodes so won't get a number We're gonna release these episodes in the middle of the month. So the patriots supporters. Get a week or two. After the ama came out to listen to it and know in their hearts that only they have been able to hear it. And then we're gonna send it out to everybody. So as i always say here. No pressure to join on patriot or anything like that where the heavy community whether or not money is exchanging hands. But i would like to convey my thanks to patriot community for suggesting that we share these ama episodes more widely. So these words. I'm saying right. Now are replacing. The intro i did for the actual ama that the patriots supporters heard. Because i was only talking about the election. That was gonna come up in a day or two not really relevant anymore going forward. This is going to be The same intro that you get for the wide thing and for the patriots supporters usually babylon for a couple of minutes about something that has been going on in the last week. Then we dive into the questions. So let's do that. Let's go then..
"ama" Discussed on The Peter Attia Drive
"Without further delay. Here's Today's sneak peek of the. Ask Me Anything episode into their. Ask Me Anything or AMA episode. This is number fourteen. One of our previous. Ama's I mentioned how I like to think about lab ranges and I might look at them in a way that it's not necessarily congruent with the way the themselves talk about them and I talked about doing potentially an episode about looking at labs and such so. This is that episode so this is pretty big topic and we actually didn't cover as much as I thought we would before we ran out of time on this episode so in this episode. I talk very broadly but I think comprehensively and in a manner. That's helpful to think about labs about my framework four. What labs can inform and what they can't inform and again even though that took longer than I thought it would take. I don't think it makes sense to get into this discussion without starting with a foundation. And so I think you'll find that interesting and hopefully it's the type of thing you don't have to go back and revisit over and over again but sitting through at once is a really good way to say okay if I'M GONNA go to the trouble of doing advanced testing what am I learning. And just as importantly what am I not learning? We then go into a couple of cases around cardiovascular disease and that's pretty much where we run out of time on this episode goes by really quick. And we're going to do is come back and just pick it up on the same thread going into other sorts of cases so at the end of this episode. I talk about what we're going to come back and visit and of course if based on this episode you have specific types of lab questions or scenarios. Maybe as a more important I think about it that you want to dive into. Please let us know. And we can obviously add that to subsequent episodes so before I started have to obviously give the obligatory disclaimer. Which is at this. Podcast is for informational.

I suppose all right. Here's Dan There's been so much talk about boo boo What is What is the point where people actually start revolting Seems to me if it wasn't happening already. Never will well a similar question to the the last one but no. I don't think something's not happening. That means it never will happen. It just means people haven't been pushed far enough to the to the point of actually being ready to to do it All Right Dan. What will it take for you to don a Hawaiian Shirt I'll I'll do it like in the right situation like on a cruise or something like that If I'M IN HAWAII IF I'm in the Bahamas or something like that I might throw one on. Just get in the mood. But you're not gonNA catch me on that in In New York. Okay Seth what is the Libertarian? Answer to stop companies from committing mass. Pollution doesn't seem to me like a boycott would be effective because it's not like these companies are doing this shit out of Out in the open so the public wouldn't even know about it I don't know about that seat. The problem with having this attitude toward pollution is that pollution is just taken as a bad that. It's always bad right. So the truth is pollution and civilization are one in the same literally one in the same. That's how you get civilization. Is you start polluting? There's no I mean start from the beginning This is like what the environmentalists completely miss. Or maybe they don't even miss it and they're just anti-human that's possible too and it's true in some cases but if you look at nature as we find it it's what a forest with a bunch of trees now have you say. Hey we're gonNA start building a civilization step number is going to be. Let's cut down some trees and and it's going to be more and more after that right so it's not as if pollution in general the fact that we all live in civilizations and stuff kind of indicates that people are comfortable with a certain amount of pollution right now if you're talking about the the bad kind of pollution right like a certain kind of pollution which is like somebody you know like Dumping in a river or something like that so the drinking water isn't clean or whatever like somebody really polluting the air. The point where other people are breathing in getting sick or something like that Well number one. That's not done in secret. People know where that pollution is coming from almost always And number two. What you're talking about as a property rights violation. I mean if you're it let's say if your polluting your land and it doesn't affect anybody else it doesn't affect any of their land or the air they're breathing or anything like that then Then there's really no problem right. 'cause nobody's being by this. You're just kind of fucking up your own land so go for it. But I think what we're usually talking about when we talk about pollution is that you're dumping in a river and the rivers going downstream to an area where you don't own the land and fucking all of their land up so it's a property rights violation they should have a right to sue you for that But you don't enforce property rights efficiently by saying we're going to create one central organization that can violate property rights whenever they want to known as the state So that's yeah I mean I just think what you want is. Is You know. Strict enforcement of property rights. And that's that's your best bet to all right you know what? I'm going to take one more and then that'll be That'll be it for part one of the Great Ama. I'll keep these gallon. I'll try to maybe every week. I'll put out another part of the Great Amei or something like that and we'll keep going is see if I can get through this whole list. You guys are gonNA keep adding stuff to it Okay do Patrick is now a good time to get the end. The Fed movement back up and running. They've backed us into an economic mess. that looks like it will only get worse. They are now buying up corporate bonds. Is this the crisis where the slow roots for the possibility of Fascism? Make a death grip No question about it. I think this is the time this is. This is where you know. It's always interesting in these situations where it kind. It can kind of seem like you know whatever some people and say the death of libertarianism or were in our worst moment or something like that but then on the flip side this is our greatest opportunity and whether or not You know We take advantage of it. That's up to us but we have entered a time where monetary policy is back on the table. You know it's something to be talked about again and yes. This is a big opportunity. The risk of course is real deal. Fascism that we might be living under or a great depression that we might be living under But this is absolutely the time for Libertarians to start talking about the Federal Reserve and how they are actively as we speak right now. Robbing you robbing you blind. And this isn't anything about this. Is this is what we have to get across the people? It's not a question about should You know the government tax wealthy people to help out the less wealthy people or should the government not tax wealthy people to help out the less wealthy people. That's the debate. Everyone always wants to have the reality is. The government is robbing from working people to bail out rich people. That's what's going on and it's indefensible and that's what we need to insert into the conversation. Of course they're doing this. Most directly through monetary policy Elysee. They're also going to be doing it with some corporate bailouts. An other regards but the most agree just just the largest You know heist is through the monetary system. So that's what we gotta talk about. And I know I'll keep talking about it I got Tom Woods I'm I'm recording with him later today. And then I'm recording with gene obscene tomorrow and I'm GonNa talk to both of them about that That very topic Okay that is part one of the Great Ama be safe everybody. I'll talk to you soon piece..
"ama" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"If you WANNA know who? America's next enemy is looking at funding right now other than the one of these problems are result of government being way too big to do. Hey what's up guys? Welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem. I'm David Smith of course. Still in self distancing quarantined mode. I hope very much that everybody out there is doing good. I hope that You guys are staying healthy and hopefully Healthy both physically and economically and in every other sense I know this is a tough time for a lot of people out there so I've been thinking a lot about that lately. Hey here's an idea that I I was thinking because somebody posted something along these lines In the part of the problem inner circle. But you know so I was talking to my wife the other day about like Maybe what we could Donate a little bit of money to or maybe if there was somebody who you know like A. I don't know you know in times like this. You obviously there's a lot of people who are hurting And then somebody at post something in the inner circle along the lines of his anybody here really up against it financially and I thought there was something really cool about that. So maybe If we were one of the things we could do that I thought would be kind like a a nice idea that would be. That'd be really great as if maybe there were some people In in our private facebook group or even outside of its people. Listen to the show if you are like in a real tough time for a lot of people who are out of work and don't have you know savings to rely on you know. Some people are more screwed over by the situation than others If you start a gofundme or something like that we can share it around and maybe that would be kind of cool if some of the you know the some of the people listen to the show who are in a little bit more of a secure place than others could help out some of the The people who are in a bad situation I'd certainly be happy to to help battle little bit And Yeah maybe we could get some Some voluntary socialism going within our Our hardcore free-market crowd anyway was just thought I had based off with somebody else posted and I thought that would be neat. So maybe we could. Maybe we can try to do that. I'll I'll certainly be happy to like Share any of those around and stuff like that so whatever I can do to help Lemme now So I have a You know I put out an episode that a that was released today with With the Great Scott Horton And we talked for about two hours and you know Scott of course as usual is. He's great on everything. and So so that episode came out. I got I'M GONNA be recording with the great. Tom Woods Later on today and then I'm going to be recording with the Great Jeanette Stein Tomorrow Trying to line up some other Some other stuff as well But so you know I I'm trying to at least give you guys a you know a good amount of content while I'm here Also I was Invited onto a Jimmy. Doors Show So trying to make that happen he invited me on and I said I'm happy to do it so I still haven't heard back from his people but I think I think I'll be doing that That show coming up sometime in the near future so Look for that as well. I know he wanted to talk to a libertarian about their Their take on on this whole this whole mess so you know. I'm I'm glad he's He's He's thinking about having me on 'cause I was hoping it wouldn't be somebody else who would just go go embarrass all of us. And there's no shortage of that in the libertarian world. So anyway for today's episode. What I thought I was asking the part of the problem. Inner Circle Members just other ideas for episodes of what we could do. I mean I don't want to just keep talking about corona virus. Obviously that's the big thing. But we've you know I'm GonNa talk about that with Tom in with Jane Epstein tomorrow so you know I was thinking like what else can we do and people were making different suggestions? And one of the suggestions was that I do like a giant Ama where I answer all of the questions from the the inner circle Private facebook group and I thought that was a cool idea. And maybe we try that so this is going to be the. Great Ama the Great. Ask me anything from the part of the problem. Inner Circle which is our private facebook group So I figured I'd start doing that. I'm going to try to take on all All of your questions I won't be able to do that all in one episode but so I figure we'll just make. This is a multi part episode. You know I'll I`ll. I'll do these ever ever ever so often or whatever I don't know still kind of figuring it out but I'll take on a whole bunch of them right now and Try to answer them as best I can. And then of course on top of all the other The other interviews conversations that I'm doing you know we'll we'll keep doing those Those fireside chats with the fire Robbie Bernstein the king the Cox. I'll keep those going. I like the I like calling them. Fireside chats maybe maybe. I'll do that but I'll keep calling and checking in with Robbie from time to time so of course all of you good people can hear from ratify Bernstein. Because really. That's what you need in a time like this is is more more rapid fire. I know that's what I need all right. So let's jump into it here. It is I posted In the part of the problem inner circle. I'm going to record an Ama show and try to answer all your questions. It'll probably take a few episodes. But here's part one. Hit Me with your questions. Let's see what we've got okay. So Raymond asks What will you spend your first? Usa backed digital dollar on. And I assume you're referring to my trump bucks if I if I ever end up getting I you know I have a feeling I'm not gonNA end up getting anything Just because of the the proposals I've seen floated around so far. I'm not sure I would be entitled to anything but I don't know I haven't really figured it out yet if If I do end up getting a check from the government maybe I'll maybe I'll try to put it toward some some good. 'cause I don't know maybe try to help out some Some some listeners. Of the show or something like that. Maybe just donate it. The missus institute. I don't know I gotta I gotTa figure it all out but I don't know it's an interesting question and I don't have a very good answer for you because I haven't gotten anything and I'm not sure yet By the way I will unrelated thing. Let me answer question that you're not asking because I heard a bunch of people saying like what is the correct like Libertarian. Thing to do you know like this thing like well. If you don't really believe in government handouts should you take it are you morally obligated not to take it and I don't really personally buy into into that. I mean I think that Look the the government robs a lot more from us Then then they give us. And that's just directly. I mean not for everybody. Some people are living off the government. But certainly if you're a net tax payer I think there is no way you should have no moral qualms about getting some of your money back and And then even if you're not an tax payer the truth as the government you know the government robs us in one hundred and one different ways so I wouldn't I wouldn't i. Wouldn't you know worry about that like if you need the money and you get. Excuse me. Don't worry it's not corona. There's just a cat in this house. been sneezing and having a runny nose today. So I apologize for that but Yeah I wouldn't if you need the money and you get the money. I think there's nothing wrong with taking it. And that's that's always been my position on like you know anytime you know. Medicare social security anything like that. Like if the government's GonNa rob you and you get your hands back on some of that money. I don't think there's any problem with that but taking it and spending it all right. Let's move to the next question. Drew Asks He says that he says potential impact of forced closures on violent crimes and other undesirable events Yeah that's well. The potential is certainly there. That's probably more than anything else. Probably the reason why I got I got my wife and daughter out of Out of New York City just didn't seem like That was the The best place to be I'm concerned about that. I mean we're going to have to see how this whole thing plays out i. I don't know for sure that things are going to get bad but I already I saw the other day. actually my wife showed me but the videos of homeless people Getting Real Rowdy in in Brooklyn and they were kind of like a Like roaming around together really starting to harass people and this is only just you know a few days into the shutdown But I'm sure they're not getting as much money as there used to getting because aren't as many people walking around the streets putting money in their cups and stuff like that so yet. It's these things you know. Society in general is much more fragile than we We spend too much time thinking about and so it absolutely concerns. May that if you know something like this could you could start seeing violence increase And that's that threat isn't going to be just during the During this whole you know lockdown even after the lockdown ends. I mean if we are as think we're going to be in a severe recession or maybe even a depression After all this is done You know the big cities may not be the place to be. I mean it might I you know. I grew up in New York City in the eighties and nineties. Let me tell you. New York City was was a different place back then and You know violent crime was was just part of the deal was part of it was like what? New York City was known for So it's And that all changed but that doesn't mean it can't go back so I'm very concerned about that Potential and We'll say we'll see what happens. All Right Eric Asks if you had the misfortune to be elected to Congress how it Congressman Dave Smith. Use The position to further the cause of liberty. Oh Jeez Eric. Why would you do that to me? Why why would you even want to do that? To me Well I don't know and it's not something I I ever do but you know I think really the person who laid out the blueprint for that obviously is a great doctor. Ron Paul who was in Congress for for quite a while and I think he basically did the best thing. You can basically vote. No on everything. Propose a balanced budget. And if you can get yourself onto a monetary policy committee just grill the Fed Chairman Endlessly so that that would probably be my answer to that but truthfully speaking you know the even if you just get one if you get one me in a in Congress. It's it's really not GonNa do that much So a really. All it is is a bully pulpit..

"I think you'll really enjoy it. What are your current favourite biohacking tools? Sauna Cold Exposure Continuous Glucose Monitor. Honor those are the three if you WANNA learn about the benefits of sonnen cold exposure type in Sauna Rhonda Patrick pdf and she has a great article. Michael both unsown and cold exposure to separate documents. you can pull them up. She references all of the peer reviewed science. And why it's important to figure out a way it incorporated into your lives. Those are those might go. To's if you had to choose just one would it be Peleton or Sauna At the tough one I would say probably Peleton because I lost the most weight in got in better cardiovascular shape with Peleton and it's a ton of fun but that that said there are some really inexpensive ways to hack the Saunas some little single person Saunas. And these little things Kinda wrap around a chair and get you to the right temperatures. So don't think just because he draw a couple of grand on Peleton that you know you have to do the same thing for Asana. They're much more inexpensive ways. Infrared saunas things like that as well. So you know I'd I'd say to one and save up for the other. These still invest. I do yeah I do so. I'm pretty vanilla when it comes to public market stuff in that I do index funds all the John Bogel vanguard style stuff and then a certain percentage of my net worth is carved out to cryptocurrency Z.. So I'm really long on Bitcoin so I hold a bunch of Bitcoin and a few other. Little smaller CRYPTO projects. I know that when I say that thousand like which ones and Gosh I would have to think of the ones that pulling some file coin from back in the day and in a couple of other ones that Solana's unas another one. So L. A.. Saying by telling you what I have Coin I don't know opera coin while we're going was the the Burger. Your King crypto amazing without did not. I'd never gotten to Oppor coin so investing wise I tend to think go super risky with a very small percentage of your worth for me. That's Crypto in tech investing in the rest is like just not gonNA lose it. Get a nice little slow. Gains Means Year over year. How many meals a day do you eat to lunch and dinner? He's enough. How do you balance exploring your many interests with being present husband and father It's really difficult. I would say that I used to do like ten little small things that I was always fight juggling now. I pick like one thing that that I want to go and considered to be an outside of work activity and then I I just go do that. So for example. I've been spending some. I've been doing. Actually the kind of two birds wants don't want to spend time with my my mom and that gets to spend some time with her. She lives here as well. And she's getting up there. She'll be eighty next year. which is crazy So I didn't taking pottery class with my mom right now and I do that once a week and I've always wanted to take some pottery and learn in. Just try my hand at that. So it's like I get to spend time with mom and do pottery so it's awesome but yeah just picking one thing because they they kind of hit on it with a question but it is hard to juggle everything. What's your thought process? That's behind moving to Portland. Good life investment. Yeah Portland's amazing if you haven't been phenomenal place to visit hiking trails beautiful forests fantastic beer scene. It's almost too good of a beer. Seeing my my gut will tell you and you get a lot more like it like. It's a lot more space and it's actually still really affordable place The food scene is awesome. And there's so much love in terms of just like a really cool town certain areas. Are they have these like fun. Little pocket neighborhoods with all these little coffee offi shops and a Lotta rain. But you know that's why you get the beautiful forest and the amazing summers. How did you meet Dario? And when did you realize she was the one mentor on twitter after she automatically follow me because I was suggested user back in the suggested user list was hard coded so I have to thank for that one. He was. CEO CEO time and added to the suggested user list. I started getting all these followers all of a sudden and then having to be one of them and she re re tweeted something that I had tweeted. It's actually about Dr Andrew. Weil and I was like. WHO's this little hot? Little forty forty icon Suman on that and clicked on her profile and we ended up meeting beaten up for a bottle of wine and I would say I knew she was the one when I found someone that was into Zelda. That was Super Geeky. 'cause she's a neuroscientist. Scientists you know obviously really attractive and awesome in also just really willing to to work on herself and always be improving living and treating our relationship like we're in this together versus so confrontations with her as it always obviously happens with with everyone one have always been. Let's figure out a way to solve this and that we will both want the same thing. We both want healthy loving relationship and so working working on this together versus it being me versus you is such a nice refreshing way of approaching things so just finding that in someone say you hit the lottery with that one brother thank you. I appreciate that as she's awesome. She is. How do you network with people? Assuming you're starting from scratch. Oh that's a good question so for start from scratch crash I would say meet up so your friend go to where you're gonNA find like minded folks be yourself. Don't try I mean the second you try and be someone you're not it's going to be so apparent and then use Actually the workplace for a lot of this so just meeting people. The same company is a less intimidating thing to do and you know just sitting at the lunch table with a different group of people. Ask them about where they work. If you're at a big company offering assistance and how you can help out in certain ways. He's I would say that those are great places to start. What's your favorite Japanese whiskey under a hundred dollars? Okay so I was really glad to receive this question. It's a tricky question because there's no such thing. Japanese was these are just insanely overpriced right. Now I mean you can get a horrible Japanese. It is whiskey by some unknown brand. Don't do that so the one I will tell you that I think is fantastic. You like that Chocolate with Vicha Sea salt on it. Oh yeah that Kinda like savory sweet Flavor profile totally. Yeah if you're a fan of that the Yoichi makes a whiskey called the PD in salty. And it's two hundred and eighty nine dollars a bottle. Oh it's Pricey I get that but you know these things are not getting cheaper. So it's like a little bit of investment in in. I know it's really pricey but you asked about Japanese whisky whiskey. So like Java's are not cheap like just give some context here you go and get a blended BIKI and it's GonNa be like eight hundred bucks a bottle plus and it just gets crazier and crazier from in there. So this is a killer bottle if you're willing to make the investment and It has that components of Ip Denison saltiness that aged aged fund fund. Nice little friend just to sit on But I I got I by Java's whiskies from a place called D.. Kanta because you can really trust awesome You can find cheaper place to define this probably but it's like I don't know that I would fully trust all the spot so D. E. K. A. N. T. A.. Dot Com is my go to place for the great Japanese importer. What's your favorite book of two thousand? Nineteen I've got a few I would say. Ah The untethered soul by Michael Singer was fantastic. One thing that I did enjoy a was this book called Buddha by Karen Armstrong and it really is a biography of. who was the Buddha? Like you know you hear these things like okay. Buddha religion you know. There's all these books on. How to meditate eight? How the Buddha? But how about just like the human person where where did where did he come from. What kind of houseful did he grow up in? What happened when he became Kim enlightened how did he gain following like just understanding and writing? That story has been fascinating to read and so yeah. Buddha by Karen Armstrong is is definitely a good one. I've got one for you because I remember you and I both had a pretty bad fear of flying which Oh yeah. They gave into a love of bloody Marys at seven in the morning. Yeah thanks for telling everybody that. There's a great book called Cockpit confidential everything you need to know about air travel by Patrick Smith. He's a pilot it. It came out in twenty fifteen. I get this book on audible and I just put. Every time I go on a plane. I started listening to it on my way to the airport and can just skip around around. I feel safer in a plane now than I do standing in the airport. That's amazing. It is unbelievable this will this will get anybody over fear flying. I tell you because he just goes through everything about what. It's like to be a pilot. How safe being on the plane is because statistically that is the safest place in the airport from from the time you're in your house to to win you're on that plane? Everything in between is more dangerous than you be actually being on that plane even when it's on the ground yeah I mean I've been walking through so those little tunnels to get the plan. You feel like those things during a collapse on you. I tell you man I will say that. I fly so much now that I've gotten over a lot of that. I think once you do once you fly like like four times a month. It doesn't really impact us much and then also do it. A lot of the surrender stuff were like There's a great by Michael Singer on surrender. That that one will really help out a lot. but yeah. I'm excited to read this. I'm definitely down but that's not that said you know if it's like six o'clock and I'm taking a later flight I no longer have to do the morning. Bloody Marys raise but definitely from later flight. I'm like yeah why not have a you know a a beer or something before I get on the plane are you doing the Wim Hof method this went am yeah. I'M GONNA start on in December so stay tuned on Instagram at Kevin Rose. And you'll see all of my crazy ice bath. Experiments also kind of outline what the methods all about do you have any falter elements like OCD. ADHD oh man. Yeah absolutely. I've always been someone that ruminates a lot on on things so I've always kind of had that that issue where if something enters my head and I.
"ama" Discussed on The Kevin and Ryan Show
"Everybody Kevin Rose here. Welcome back episode of the Kevin. Rose show really excited do my second ask me anything. I want to say first of all. Thank you to everyone that submitted midday questions to my instagram account. I got probably. I'd say between five hundred and six hundred questions so I couldn't get them all but we highlighted a few of my favorites here and got through quite a few actually because we do a rapid fire at the end for this episode. I wanted to a couple of things. One tell you to call me up on at at Kevin Rose on instagram. And the second thing. I'm excited to do this episode with Jason De Filippo. I've known Jason for a very long time now and we were old school web two point. Oh geeks back in the day Jason. Also Edison's podcast and he's also a podcast host. If you haven't heard his show you want to check out grumpy the old geeks Jason is have you on the show man good to finally get together on a show at some like taking awhile. I know dude. We have been friends for. Do you remember when we first met. We first met I think it was right before you got funded for dig because I you said something really nice on. TV about technology. And I was like employees eleven at technology and I saw you lucky cat or black cat. Black Cat yeah. In San Francisco came up and said Hi and then it turned out. We live like two blocks away from each other and the rest is history which was actually a bad thing yet. It was a bad as we end up becoming drinking but his back then and we were pretty young and foolish and consumed a lot of beer. Together we were pretty good drinking buddy. That's for sure that's right that's right. There's some good stories in there that we shall not talk about. Nobody will ever. We're here though that's right so yeah I'm excited to do this with you. Thanks for agreeing to come on and help me out with some of these questions because It'll be nice to have someone to chat with him about the last time I did one. That was Kinda weird when you do those. Ama's and you're the only person sitting in the room. So yeah it's a it's cool to to have you on the show to excellent excellent excellent. Well shall we get started. Let's do it. Do you have any advice for a recent college graduate stepping into the startup world. Yeah absolutely I mean this one is something that ad I you know. We all land in that. I kind of GIG straight out of school or in my case I dropped out of school. I think he dropped out to right. Yeah I I mean. I went what to school for photography. And just Kinda bounced into computers on my own. So I learned everything myself but Yeah you're all self taught on the on the coding side and remember that. Yep You know oh I think that in the early days. Don't think of this as like okay. I I'M GONNA work my way up in NBC's Eeo in in five years. I think it's more about doing excellent work. It's it's about making friends You know these friends will eventually you know go off to start other. Companies joined other businesses. And when you have those relationships ships that's going to open up opportunities future companies in really. I would say these first. Five years are all about networking and improving your worth and being take on any task so whatever you do do it at the highest level and don't have this attitude where well that's beneath me. I mean you really really have to get scrappy and to show that you're willing to take on anything and when you do that and and you do it successfully. You know the people in charge. If you're working on a good organization we'll start to hand you tasks tasks that are you know more more challenging and that will eventually lead to promotions and other things but yeah definitely making friends in in. Doing excellent work would be my by the advice. What's your take on specialization versus generalization in a start up? Well I guess it really depends on if you had gone to school for coding. When you already know I'm GonNa be in this particular department? If you're someone like me that had taken a little bit of code but also I love to do. I was Doing some early display ad stuff. When I first got started in kind of tracking down our of our conversion away from the you know the actual ad add source all the way down to the network that we purchased the ad out all way to converting to a shopping cart or cart? Abandonment rate I just loved excel and loved to jump into that so when I was at my first couple startups it was doing a little bit of everything Just kind of trying to see what what I gravitated towards and what I really loved so yeah I mean. If you're if you're a coder I would get serious about something especially given the kind of crazy demand for on the machine learning and AI side. I'm that's a no brainer to go into those very specific niche kind of industries early on because in five ten years. You'll be making some serious dollars in those those fields. I know that when I was at Google I had heard that some of our higher end kind of folks were gosh was it was over. Four million dollars in total copy year for those types of coating positions which just insanity but it just goes to show you how few people at that time. We're actually doing that work. And it it was Is Very sought after in so they could command those salaries. But yeah I'd say if if you really don't know what's going on in any kind of like well. I think I like this but I am not sure. I mean when you're so early in your career you you can afford to go and spend three years to three years at something and in the end up bailing on saying like I just don't like this and then jump over to the the next thing so don't be afraid or feel like if you've gone down a path for years and I wouldn't say this even as an adult later on in life life you've gone down this path and you keep beating yourself up and you know it's not for you at an life's too short It's worth taking a few steps back to to move forward word. Definitely definitely and on the generalization side of things. I just want to chime in that. When I was at the companies I was always a coder but I got to know every different part of the business business? Just because it makes you a better coder because you know what the business goals are. You know what the marketing goals are and it helps you align what you're doing when you design your software and you throw out ideas for new features. It really makes you more valuable to the team. And it's not that you're GONNA have to go you know you're going to be right you know see. PHP Java script doing design work working all that stuff. Not that kind of generalization but just knowing having a working functioning knowledge of the startup that you're working in like try and get your fingers and everything because it's GonNa make you more valuable to the team in the long run. Yeah absolutely and even if like let's say you're a engineer and you eventually want to make your your way to the management track. You're going to have to have those skills anyway way right because if you're managing other engineers part of your responsibilities not only obviously managing that team but then also kind of working with other related teams you know the marketing departments the the CEO on the other organizations internally to to fulfill that vision. So you're gonNA need to have those those skills all right moving on. How often do you meditate? Yeah I mean that's changed quite a bit over the years I would say that Initially I kind of did it to on a more prescriptive kind of the thing where I was meditating to relieve anxiety and just kind of using it because I was going through something in life where I felt like meditation would help me me and then you know later I realized that that's actually the worst time to meditate. You Really WanNa have a habit and build up a practice practice so that you don't even get in those situations to begin with and so for me that that looks like at least and this will seem like a very short amount of time. Yeah but at least ten minutes Sometimes twenty minutes a day but the key here is ten minutes every single day so treating this like something that cannot be skipped tipped. Everyone can find ten minutes. I don't care how busy you are but just making sure to keep up that that daily cadence so that it is a part of your life and that yeah well those benefits will compound over time And I I think it's a it's all you really need. I I was I doing longer for meditations but then you know after when life all of a sudden it hits from a different direction you realize i. I don't have time to sit for forty minutes a day. I was doing twenty minutes in the day and tournament tonight and then all of a sudden an one one of those falls off and then all of the second one falls off you know like well I gotta go meet a friend for dinner tonight. So I can't do in. You're not meditating at all so yes sticking working with a daily practice that you you promise to yourself internally that you just will not move are sacrificing for anything else And during those ten minutes I think is the key. How is is your practice changed from when you didn't have kids too when you had kids? Is that when it started to fall off well. My practice has changed quite a bit in that of study with a bunch of different disciplines over time I was very lucky to live across the street from the San Francisco Zen Center when I moved over on page street there and I would pop in and an actually took my first training and meditation With the Zen monks there and learned about Zaza and all the proper ways proper to sit in the how you would enter the temple and like all these like very formal things that they have when you practice Zen so I was lucky in. That was an hour long meditation that I was doing there seated but thin one. The APP started coming out. So you know head. Space launched in eventually come came out. It started just practicing at home with a cushion there and I was moving to twenty minutes a day. I think is pretty much where I was at the night started. Ti studied TM Meditation which is a form of mantra meditation. They recommend that you do twenty minutes in the morning in tournaments tonight. That's very mantra. Meditations a very intense thing. It's like It's it's different than the than the zen or or more of a pasta kind of with my infamous based meditation and more recently. I've gotten serious about that. Mindfulness based style. I think Sam Harris has a fantastic course but it's the fifty day ten minutes a day course on the pasta style meditation. I fear that a lot of the meditation APPs. Oh concluded the one that I most recently worked on. They're great for an introduction and a lot of them are really great for prescriptive stuff so I have a fear of flying. I'M GONNA take a fear of flying pack and things like that but they don't go really elite really deep for people that want to take meditations seriously. So that's the one thing I really loved about Sams Course. He really is for meditation for people that want to go. Oh a little bit deeper. If you could call yourself ten years ago and talk for one minute what would you tell your younger self. Oh.

Accepted cost thirty percent more shut up. Now. I'm getting that's amazing. It's it's noise for her. It's smaller. Well, you can you can listen to it with your most. Delicate little lady years of pink noise is like the same things white noise, except like the decibels on on some end of the noises turned up, so some people respond better to it. Anyway. So I'd noise noise is good. I like noise I have found in my most favorite noise is rain, rain, noise, thunder noise. And so now, I got these new headphones because you know, I do a lot of audio, and I broke my headphones. So both of those are reasons why about headphones, and I like them so wear them all the time. And it's also called on the act your ear muffs and people are like seeing me walk around town like all that cool girl listened to some cool music. No, I'm listening to the rain. I loved that goal to fake rain twenty four hours a day. That's amazing to keep myself from having a panic attack at any given moment, I listen to rain to fall asleep. When I'm when I want to take a little nap you net. It's great. It is leads really good. And if you have like, a bluetooth speaker or whatever almonds amazing that's under can. Rumble, you it'll rumble you into your soul. I like that we live. We live in the in Chicago, and it rains here a lot. Anyway, it does. But like more I want more I want more..

"To AMA at impact theory dot com. That's AMA an impact eerie dot com. Finally, separating that out into its own Email account. All right without further ado, let us dive into the questions this is from Nikki. Hey, Tom recently. I feel like I've hit rock bottom. Mentally of always struggled with self confidence and the feeling of being worthy. I finished my degree as a teacher as one of the best in my year, while still pursuing my passion for music recording. Now playing shows on weekends at cetera. Instead of being proud of the things I've accomplished I recently started to feel pretty burned out and find that making music doesn't make me happy anymore as it's just more and more frustrating. I know the quality wise, I plan a pretty high level. However, I feel like a failure. And like everyone else in. The businesses worthier than me is starts eating me up recently at the point up to the point that I was wondering if I'm really an artist or just an idiot any ideas on what is wrong with my perspective, and what I can do to stop slipping into depression and a feeling of being constantly burned out. Yes. And this is something that. I didn't see coming when I started all of this doing QNA's. I didn't see how many people are really in need of falling in love with what they're doing falling in love with themselves. How many people struggle with this? So first of all the people that you feel are worthier than you. I just promise you that the vast majority of them feel the same way you do because the metric that you're using to judge yourself is is a very disempowering metric, and so what you're doing is saying worldly, how am I successful compared to others? How am I successful? Instead of saying do I fucking love playing the music or not. And why do I want to get good at this? What am I trying to do who am I trying to impact impact not impress not the amount of money that you wanna make you've got to putting fall in love with what you're doing? And this is like, we're it's a fucking pandemic. People are not enjoying what they're doing. First of all if you're burned out take time off like I it really drives me nuts that people look at me as captain grind. And I'm telling you right now the thing that you should look at me as captain love. What you do? I love what I do. And the whole story that I tell people about when I went in and for six years, it was just grinding it out. It was just chasing money, which can insert is success was just chasing success. I had a weird fucking metric that I was judging everything by I was chasing that it just so happens that the metric was money, but that metric could have been anything other than how it made me feel whether or not that I loved it. Now when you're doing that everything just chips, wait, you grinds. Wait you because every second that you're spending doing that. You're not spending something that fills you up. It makes you feel good. There are things in this world that will make you just feel intrinsically. Good. And I know I sound probably agitated right now. The fair word to use. But this is. This is me loving people. This is me wanting to see you guys happy, and scratch that this is me wanting to see you guys fight three river of shit to find fulfilment because at the end of the day that is going to serve you. Now when you take the time to fall in love with music or to stop doing music, which by the way would be fine. But if you're stopping music because you feel like an idiot that is a judgment that you're placing on yourself based on this external metric, which actually has nothing to do with whether or not you love it..

"So that it's questions or AM AMA at impact theory dot com AMA at impact dot com, which is actually going to need to make that Email address. But by the time you hear this that Email address will have been made poor chase been drowning sifting through because everything goes to connect. So if you have a question send that question two A M A at impact theory dot com, and he's setting an alarm right now. All right, guys. Thank you so much for submitting the questions always incredibly meaningful. And the first one is from Natasha shivani. Hi, tom. My question is in relation to learning. I believe learning in itself is a skill. I've been trying to build myself esteem around being an avid learner. But I've noticed that. It's not it. I've noticed but what I've noticed. Does that I'm not learning at a fast paced, could you break down some skills required for fishing learning? I know repetition and doing things routinely over and over again is advised. But what else if you had to breakdown learning skills into five simple steps? What would they be? How does one monitor officiant learning and improve on this? All right. I wish I had a piece of paper and a pencil. I could actually give you five precisely. But I will go off the top. Okay. So number one is going to be area of interest. I find that. The biggest thing the learning is having the enthusiasm that everything that you encounter actually gives you more energy in your excited to go down the path. And there's just like you wanna share it? You want to tell people and talk about it. That's really really big. So identifying the things that you enjoy learning about that's really big. And I'll give you an example. So Lisa when I first met her the thing that she loved learning about, and I don't know how to take this was serial killers. Man. She went hard for that serial killer cake, and that was always. Really interesting to me like getting her to read nonfiction was next to impossible unless it was about serial killers. Now, thankfully, she just found a broader array of interest other than that..
