Capital Allocation with Blair Silverberg and Chris Olivares
"Blair and Chris Welcome to the show. Thank, you good to be here. We're talking about capital allocation today and I'd like you to start off by describing the problems that you see with modern capital allocation for technology companies. I'm happy happy to start there. So I think it might be helpful to give. The listeners, a little bit of our backgrounds so I was a venture capitalist at draper. Fisher Jurvetson for five years I worked very closely with Steve. Jurvetson and we were financing are very MD intensive. Technology projects that became businesses things like satellite companies companies that were making chips to challenge the GP you new applications of machine learning algorithm so on and so forth and I think the most important thing to recognize is that the vast majority of technology funding does not actually go to those kinds of companies. The venture space is a two hundred fifty billion dollars per year investment space. The vast majority of the capital goes to parts of businesses that are pretty predictable like raising money in in investing that in sales, marketing and inventory or building technologies that have a fairly low technical risk profile, so the vast majority of tech companies find themselves raising money. From a industry that was designed to finance crazy high technology risk projects at a time where that industry because technology so pervasive you know really do the great work of of many entrepreneurs over the past twenty to thirty years, technology is now mainstream, but the financing structure to finance businesses not has not really changed much in that period of time. Yeah, and then I guess I'll talk a little bit. My my background is I came from consumer education sort of background, so direct to consumer, thinking about how you use tools and make tools that ingrained into the lives of teachers, parents students I was down in the junior class dojo before starting capital with Blair. We were working on the Earth thesis He. He was telling me a lot about this. The the date out. There exists to make more data driven in data rich decisions. How do we go software to make that easy to access in self service and sort of servicing the signal from the noise, and we kicked around the idea and I thought that they were just a tremendous opportunity to bring. What Silicon Valley really pioneered which is I think making software that is easy to use in agreeing to your live into kind of old industry fund raising capital Haitian. The kinds of capital allocation that exist there's. And debt, financing and different flavors of these. Of these things say more about the different classes of fundraising in how they are typically appropriated two different kinds of businesses. So. You have the main the main groups you know. Absolutely correct, so there's. Equity means you sell part of your business forever to a group of people and as Business Rosen succeeds. They'll get a share in that. Success and ultimately income forever. Debt means you temporarily borrow money from somebody you pay them money, and then at some point in time that money's paid back and you all future income for your business, so equities permanent, not permanent. If you think about how companies are finance like. Let's take the P five hundred. About thirty percents of the capital that S&P five hundred companies use to run. Businesses comes from debt. In the venture world that's remarkably just two percent. And the thing that's crazy is this is two percent with early stage seed companies, also two percent with public venture, backed companies in places like the best cloud index, which is like a one trillion dollar index of publicly traded technology companies started their life, and in with injure backing many of them SAS companies, these companies, also just two percent finance with debt, but nonetheless within these these classes, the reason it's obviously economically much better for a business and pretty much every case to finance itself with debt because it's not. Not It's not permanent, and it can be paid back. It's much much cheaper to use debt. That's why you buy a house with a mortgage show. You know you don't sell twenty percent of your future income forever to your bank help you buy a house, but the reason that people use equity comes back to the risk profile so just like. If you lose your job and you can't pay off your mortgage. The bank owns your home. Same exact thing happens with debt in so restorick Louis, if there's very low. Certainty around the outcome in typically early stage investment you're you're doing a lot of brand new are indeed you have no idea if it's GonNa work you cope. You know over time that you'll be successful, but there's really quite a bit of uncertainty equities a great tool because you're. You'RE NOT GONNA lose a business, you know everybody can basically react to a failed. Are Indeed project. Decide what to do next had saints. Equity is kind of the continent tool for high technical risk, high uncertainty investments, and then debt is basically the tool for everything else, and it can be used as most companies do for. Ninety percent of The places that businesses are investing so if you're spending money on sales and marketing, and you know what you're doing and you've been running campaigns before. That were successful, very. Little reason you should use equity for that if you're buying inventory if you are a big business that's. Reach a level of success that on. Means you have a bunch of diversified cashless. Coming in businesses might take out dead on business kind of overall, so it's less important what specifically you're using the money for, but it's important to recognize that most companies are financed roughly fifty fifty equity versus dead, just just intra back companies that. That are kind of uniquely Equity Finance. Scaling a sequel cluster has historically been a difficult task cockroach. DB Makes Scaling your relational database much easier. COCKROACH!

The capital that is being steered towards a recipient. It's often originating in a large source, a sovereign wealth fund or family office in it's being routed through something like capital allocators cater like a venture capital firm for example or a bank. How does this capital get allocated to these smaller sources? What is the supply chain of capital in the traditional sense? You know it's kind of funny to think about capital and things like the stock market in the form of a supply supply chain, but this is exactly how we think about it so at the end of the day. Capital originate. In somebody savings, basically society savings right you. You have a retirement account or your population like you know in in Singapore and Norway with a lot of capital, it sort of accumulated from. From the population and these sovereign wealth funds, or you're an endowment that's you know managing donations of accumulated over many many years, and ultimately you're trying to invest capital to earn a return and pay for something pay for your retirement pay for the university's operation so on so forth so that's Capitol starts, and it basically flows through the economy in theory. To all of the economic projects that are most profitable, inefficient for society, and so, if you step back, and you think about like how how is it that the American dream or the Chinese Miracle Happen? You know in in both of those cases different points of the last hundred years. Why is it that society basically stagnated? You know the world was a pretty scary. Scary place to live in up until about seventeen fifty, the industrial revolution started. Why is it that you know basically for all of human history? People fought each other for food and died at the age of thirty or forty, and over the last two hundred fifty years that it's totally changed. It's because we have an economic system that converts capital from its original owners. Diverts it to the most productive projects. which if they're successful, replace some old more expensive way of doing something with newer better way and so I think when when I described that like you know I, think most people can step back and say yeah, okay I. kind of see how capital flows through the system, it goes automatically to someone making an investment decision like a venture capital firm ultimately gets into the hands of the company company decides to invest in creating some great product that people love. Let's. Let's say like Amazon and then everybody switches from you know buying goods at some store that may or may not be out of you know may or may not being stock to the world's best selection of anything you'd never wanted. The most efficient price that's society gets wealthier basically through these these kind of steps in these transformations, but it's asking if you step back and think about it like nobody actually thinks it's processes as efficient as it could be like. We asked people all the time. People were interviewing journalists companies. We work with sewn. So how efficient do you think world's capital allocation is? I've never met a person that says it's pretty good. You know we're like ninety percent of the way there. In fact, most people think it's pretty inefficient. They think of companies like you know we work, and some of the more famous cases lately of of Silicon. Valley back businesses that that totally. underwhelmed disappointed. Their initial expectations and I think most people admit that the efficiency of capital allocation is either broken or nowhere close to achieving its potential, and so we basically we'll talk more about our technology and how we do we do. We basically think of this problem our problem to solve. There's an incredible amount of Apache inefficiency in how data that goes from a project or a company, ultimately funneling up to an investor flows, and so you know it's hard to place blame because there's so many people in the supply chain, but. But I think it super clear that if it's difficult to measure whether or not a project or a business is good at converting capital into value in wealth, and you know products that people want, it's nearly impossible for society to become really good and efficient at allocating its capital, so we're we're here basically to make the data gathering data transformation visualization communication of what's actually going on under the out of business as efficient as possible and you know from that, we thank some great things are going to happen to the economy. Goes a little bit deeper on the role that a bank typically plays in capital allocation. If you think about our bank works like let's take. Let's take a consumer bank that most people think about you gotTA checking account. Right, now you've got some money in that checking account. That account actually takes your money or dot and most people know this your dollars sitting in that account. You know just waiting around. You'd withdraw them. Your dollars are actually rolling up into the bank's treasury. There's somebody at the bank working with the regulators to say hey, how much of this money can we actually put into things like mortgages, commercial loans, all of the the uses of capital that society. Has In some some effort to. To, move the world forward and make the economy efficient, and so those deposits basically roll up into a big investment fund, and there's ratios that regulators set globally that say those dollars needed to be kept in reserve, versus how many are actually able to be invested, but with the portion that's able to be invested. It's there to fun. You know building a house to fund a business back -Tory to fund sales and marketing or inventory procurement for some other business, and so a bank was was basically the original investment fund, and a bank has unlike venture funds and other sources of. We typically think private capital. The bank has tricky. Problem were any moment all of the depositors holding the checking accounts could show up and say hey. I want my money back and so that's why banks have to deal with reserving capital predicting the amount of withdraw and classically everybody wants her money at once at the worst possible time, and so banks have to deal with quite a bit of volatility now if you take an investment fund on the other hand. Totally totally different structure, so your typical venture fund will have money available to it for a period of ten years from you know typically these larger pools of capital. We talked we talked about so very rarely. Individuals are investing retirement savings in venture funds, typically sovereign wealth funds down that's. Basically pools of that individuals capable. Win One of these funds makes a commitment to a venture fund. It'll say you've got the capital for ten years. You've gotta pay back. You know as investments exit, but other than that will check in ten years from now. We hope that we have more than we gave you the star with and there there's no liquidity problem because the fun has effectively carte blanche to keep the money invested until some set of businesses grow and succeed and go public and make distributions so one thing that's fascinating. The Tappan in the last twenty five years is private capital capital in the format of these kinds of funds. Have just grown tremendously and so today. There's a little over five trillion dollars. Of private capital being allocated in this way to think like buyout funds venture funds so on and so forth. Funds don't have the liquidity problems of banks. They can make much longer term for looking investments. This is created tremendous potential to make the economy more more efficient by taking out the time spectrum. You know this is why venture investors can do things like finance spacex or Tesla. Really. Build fundamental technologies in the way that a bank never could so this is an amazing thing it. However leads to a very long. You DAK cycle, so the incentive goes down when you take out the time line over which investment needs to pay back. To carefully monitor and understand what's going on in the business day today, so it's pretty interesting thing about the different pools of capital. There's not not to. Make it sound too confusing, but I think everybody will admit that the financial markets are incredibly diverse complicated we track basically about fifteen different kinds of capital, and they're sort of pros and cons with each one, but you know a bank is one. A private fund is wanted insurance companies balancing as another. You've got things like ETF and public vehicles that hold capital so there's quite a bit of complexity and the the structure of the financial markets. All right well. That's maybe the supply side of Capitol on. All kinds of middlemen and all kinds of different arrangements, but ultimately there is also the demand side of Capitol, at least from the point of view of companies getting started which is. Startups or computer in later stage with the maybe they're not exactly considered startup anymore, but they're mature. These companies have models for how they are predicting. They're going to grow, but oftentimes these companies are very. Lumpy in terms of how their their revenues come in how closely their predictions can track reality. So how do technology companies even model their finances? Is there a way to model their finances? That actually has some meaningful trajectory. Sure so first. Companies you know need need a base think of all the places that they're spending our money and. We're pretty. We Do I. Think a pretty good job of organizing this and making it simple so when we look at companies and we can, we can talk more about how the the cabinet machine operates, but when we look at companies, we basically think they're only a handful of places of money. Get spent you spend money on. Short term projects that you hope proficient things, sales and marketing. Houston money on paying for your sources of financing like paying interest on debt, making distributions to your investors, and then you spend money on everything else and everything else can be designing software building products on, and so forth, and so if you break the demand for capital down into just those three buckets. And look at them that way. Some pretty interesting things happen. The first is for the short term investments that you hope productive. You can track pretty granular nearly whether or not they are, and we'll come back to that. For paying back your investors, you sort of know exactly how much you're paying your investors so a pretty easy thing to track, and then for the operating costs you know most people will help us. Apax, that you're paying to keep the lights on things like Renton the your accountants, the CEO salaries on and so forth these are these are table stakes expenditures. You need to stay in business and so. Amongst each of those three things, there's different things that you wanna do to optimize and I'm happy to go into more detail sort of go through each one. If you think that'd be useful. Yeah Bliss a little bit more about about how these companies should be a modeling, their revenues are that is meaningful to model their revenue so that you can potentially think of them as targets for for capital allocation so. If we think about. Understanding what company might be a viable recipient of capital? How can you accurately predict the trajectory of that company, or or do they? Would they present a model? Would they develop a model good through a little more detail? How a company would serve justify? It's need for capital. So typically what what most companies do and this is not terribly useful or accurate, but I'll tell you what most people do I mean by the way like how central the entire economy predicts, predicts demand for capital works like this. Companies take. Their income statement on their. Balance Sheet historically. And they they basically have this excel file got a bunch of you know, rose and have different things like my revenue, my you revenue that sort of linked or my expenses that are linked revenue Mukasey could sold so on and so forth, and they grow each of those rose by some number that they hope to hit so if you want your revenue to double next year, you'll say my revenue one hundred dollars today I wanted to be two hundred. Hundred dollars twelve months from now I'm just GONNA draw a line between those two points and every month. There will be some number that's on that line, and that's why monthly revenue I want my expenses. You know everyone knows. Expenses are going to have to go up if my revenue goes up but I don't want them to go up as much as my revenue, so I'm going to draw a line. That's you know somewhere less than a doubling. and. You pull these lines together on one big excel file and there's your you know they're your corporate projections. In general, this is true for big companies small companies, but that's not actually how. Company revenue works because if you go back to the three categories, we talked about before, and you just focus on the one that talks about the short term investments. The. Way Company Revenue Actually Works is a company this month. Let's say they spend one hundred dollars on sales marketing. Well. They're hoping to get a return on that sales marketing, and so they're hoping that in the next you know six months. That's paid back. Twelve months that's paid back. You can actually track every time they spend money on sales and marketing. how quickly it gets paid back so it's that level of precision that can accurately predict revenue, and so what we do is we basically just get a list of every time? Money was spent on one of these short-term investments, so you sales and marketing for for an example, and then we get a list of all of the revenue that was ever earned. And we attribute between both of those lists causing effect. And we do that using a bunch of techniques that are pretty commonplace in your typical data, company or machine learning company. We use some math things like factor graphs. We use simple kind of correlations. We have You know a whole kind of financial framework to. Guess. What attribution should be because you learn a lot as you see different businesses and you see a bunch of different different patterns, which you can basically cluster on, but it is this linkage between spending on something like sales and marketing emceeing seeing revenue, go up or down, but makes or breaks a business, and you want to look at it and I is. Not a bundled. Entirety which is how financial projections are typically built? Okay, well! Let's talk a little bit more about what you actually do so if you're talking about early stage technology companies. Describe how you are modeling, those companies and how you are making decisions as to whether they should receive capital. When a company comes to capital they they come to our website. They sign up for this system that we built which which we've called the capital machine. And the first thing that they do is they connect their accounting system their payment processor typically, so think like a strike, and then sometimes they'll provide other things like a pitch deck or a data room, or whatever other information they have prepared. The system pulls down. All of the date in the accounting system and the the payment processor, and we look at other systems to these are the two key ones that all all dive into detail, and so, what ends up happening is from the accounting system. We get a list of all the times. Businesses spend money on these things like sales and marketing that we were talking about before. From the payment processor we get a list of all the revenue transactions in crucially we get it at. The level of each. Each customer payment, and so you know we scrub I all we really care about is having a customer ID, but once we have data at that level. We can start to do this linkage and say all right look. You know this business spent. A million dollars on sales and marketing and March of two thousand eighteen in April of twenty eighteen, and we saw revenue grow by twenty percent. That was a pretty substantial chain. You know what actually happened here. You can typically identify the subcategories of sales and marketing and start to do this link between these two, and this is really the you know the magic behind our our data science in our team pairing with our engineering team to figure out this problem and solve away that is, that's robust. Bud once we have these two data feeds, and the system goes through, and does all of these attribution. Populations were able to present that back to accompany a pretty clear picture of what's going on, and so we'll say things like hey. Your Business is pretty seasonal, and in the summer is when you're typically more more efficient at converting your sales and marketing dollars into growth so I, you want to finance growth in the summer. The second thing is only about eighty percent of your businesses financeable. There's twenty percent where you might not know it because you're not looking at this level of detail, you're busy building your business, which is exactly exactly what you should be doing, but Twenty percent of your businesses, not efficient. You're spending money on on your sales and marketing categories, product lines, and CETERA that just shouldn't exist and so if you get rid of those. If you double down on the part of Your Business, it is efficient. Then we predict your revenue will be act fifty percent higher, and we'll tell you exactly how much money you need to invest to raise money to to raise the revenue by fifty percent. We give you a bunch of charts that allow you to see how history and projections merged together and dig down. Inspect how we do that linkage to make sure you agree, but. This is what the capital machine does at its core. It Converts Company data into a fully audited completely transparent picture of. How business works where it sufficient where it's not efficient. And then that's where our technology stops, and where balanced she comes in, and so we then take this information, and we make balancing investments directly in companies, and so primarily at this point we lend money to technology companies that we see from their data are eligible for non dilutive funding. We make capital available to them directly. We basically allow them to access it through the capital machine. We use one system to communicate changes to the business. No keep both sides and form so on and so forth, but this is the kind of analytics layer that's essential to making these capital allocation decisions more efficient, and so I think you could imagine a day at least for us in the not too distant future when it's not just US using our balance sheet in this tool to make investments, but in fact, just like excel, every investor can benefit from a similar level of analytics and transparency, as can companies by getting more accurately priced faster access to capital less friction so on and so forth.

The inputs specifically if you think about a model for determining whether or not, a company should should be eligible to receive capital. I'd like to know how the the models are built. The the data science models that you're building are constructed from the point of view of the inputs. So how are you determining or how do you like company comes to you? How do you turn that company into some structured form of data that you could put into your models and determine whether it's worthy of capital. Yeah I mean it comes down to what what the data is your down so when we talk to a system like striper transaction records system, you know that that's the revenue of the company now where things get interesting when we connect to balance sheets in penalizing, it's of accompanying really onto understanding. Weighing. What exactly these numbers mean, and that sort of where we made our pipelines were built from the ground up to give us that granular. Of A company's cash family revolutions. Where's the money going where they allocating? And it's savable greenway or you once. What do you understand that data through that Lens? That let's build pretty sophisticated financial models Linda. And you know as soon as you have the picture of Company You can really do a lot of flexible analysis on the back leg distributed computation. Come stuff that you would never be able to excel and quite frankly a lot of these companies don't have the stacking internally or really the tools to understand for themselves, so you'd be surprised it you know when we surface this analysis back to the company by virtue of just being transparent on how we're making decision how it is perceived their business, the signals that were uncovering. These operators the CEO's the CFO's that are really focused on building company. Really surprising. They're really making these insights really transforming. How they think they should have capital. Should invest growing business. Are there any? Sources of Third Party data that you can gather to improve decision making. There are at a macro economic sense, and so it's actually quite useful to look at public company performance and say hey. SAS businesses in general. Most people notice, but facilities in general are seasonal in the fourth quarter. Budgets basically expire and people come in, and they buy a bunch of SAS. Software and so to take concepts like that basically shapes of curves, signals and apply them to private company. Financials is useful. Crucially though there is no private company. Data repository of any kind like it just doesn't exist, and you know notoriously even even with small businesses. It's actually quite quite difficult to get access to any sort of meaningful credit data, and so, what ends up happening is these aw. These businesses. Give you a picture of their business directly as an investor and you have to interpret it directly, and that's basically how this works totally unlike consumer credit, there's no credit bureau that people paying so most investors are analyzing the state and excel. Excel notoriously breaks when there's about a million cells worth of data, and so we've got this great visualization showing our data pipeline, and it's basically a bunch of boxes, and there's a little tiny. Tiny box in the bottom of corner that's excel, and there's a bunch of other boxes across the entire rest of the page that are nodes in our in our distributed computations, but accelerate very very limited, and so it makes it impossible to actually understand what's going on in business from the source data, and it's at the source that you see this variability in this linkage between profitable capital allocation decisions in unprofitable capital allocation decisions. Describing more detail, the workflow so a company comes to you and they're going to put their inputs into the. Would you call the capital machine? What does that workflow look like in a little bit more depth? Yes when they come to the website, they creighton count much like you would on. Twitter facebook account. When your details your email, you terrify your email, and then you on what's recalling like the capital portable on there? You have et CETERA. Tools to connect your sins record and these are typical offload. So you know people are very familiar with you. You know you say hey, let's connect by quickbooks you in your credentials and sort of be as secure way, and you click okay and the system checkmark by your quickbooks in the system start pulling that data out of regular cadence and. Depending on what system you're connecting you of the characteristics of that's not go systems of record, and how much data you have you know. The data's available anywhere from ten minutes to a couple of hours later and you know once we have Dr. System, we run that through our partake analysis pipeline in the users as a company. You get you get charged. In Tableau kind of call it, the insight Saban's these refused that we think would be helpful for you as an operator company understanding about Your Business in separately. We also get views of that data that are useful to our our internal investment team. Whoever is looking to capitalization systems? Are there certain business categories that are a better fit for modeling in better fit for the kind of. Predictable capital returns that you can, you can expect with the investments that you're making so like you ride sharing or Gig economy businesses or some businesses. What are the categories that are the best fit? Say Very few categories don't shit from the from the perspective of of linkages, but they're certainly models at their easier to think through and easier to understand, but our our system can underwrite today A. Lease on a commercial aircraft, a fleet of ships and Insurance Agency ask company the most important. Thing about our system is that the financial theory that underlies it is very general, just like p. e. rate is very general, and so that's kind of sounds crazy like. A lot of. A. Lot of people say what what businesses the best fit for your your system and you know it's kind of like asking what businesses the best for Warren Buffett like Warren. Buffett is a generalist. In any business, and he has a framework in his own head to figure out how to make ship comparable to American Express our assistant has a very similar framework. It just operates at the level of transactions instead of at the level of financial statements, but certainly within. That framework there's some examples that are just easier describes I think like you know thinking through the fishing of sales and marketing something. That's a lot more obvious than thinking through like the stability in refurbishment of commercial aircraft parts, which is a key question you know. Pricing pricing refurbished parts, which is a key question if your financing commercial aircraft and Our team, the ambassadors that use the capital machine internally which we primarily do internally do a little bit of partnering with without the groups to to use this as well. These people are all specialists in some particular area, but it's crucial to understand. They're looking at the exact same chance as all the other specialists and all the other areas, so it's like literally the the Fast Company and a commercial aircraft will have the same series of charts at investors. Are there two two draw their conclusion? Is the question for Chris. Can you describe the stack of technologies that you built in more detail? Yeah Yeah. Of course on the front, we are react type script, xjs, you know everything is on aws, and in the back, and we're. We're all python, and in really the reason for that is if you're doing any serious machine, learning or data science today can't really get away in python stack, so we're all python them back in. We have flasks. As a as our API late here and That's the that's a high level. And get a little bit more detail about how the data science layer works. Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course, so we put on the dea into basically a data lake the that goes down into Ardito pipeline in that's all air orchestrated on top of each called airflow, and we use a technology called desk for are distributed computation, and I think that this is a good choice. Choice for us at this moment you know I see us doing a lot of work on. You know using a spark in other distributed technologies in the future and his team and it turns out that when we pull this data down organizing the data was really important to us as we build a lot of attractions to make accessing that data, really easy for quantitative analysts. Important central to our whole technology is that we're able to do a lot of different financials experiment very quickly on top of this so the the implications of that really cascade down all the way into. You know what technologies where choosing how we structure our delayed. Even even how strokes are teams, so it really is brought up locations across all product. How is it when you're analyzing company that you have enough data that it warrants a spark cluster because I can imagine? The financial data around the company. How can there really be that much data to analyze how you do surprised in a lot of these transactions systems taking up the companies have been around a couple of years and their direct to consumer. These data sets can be can be pretty large. You know we're talking about in the millions and millions and millions of transactions that were pulling down and storing. Storing and that just on a per company basis. You know that's not even talking about if we wanted to. Benchmarks Cross companies, and also if we want to do scenario analysis, so you know one of the things we was part of a pipeline is take this data, and through like nine ninety nine hundred thousand simulations to understand the sensitivity of different variables on the performance of Your Business and If, you're starting out with starting that already large. Sort of a multiplying effect. On how much data the system is the old process? is you go through those different stages? And, can you tell me a little more detail? What would a typical spark job? Look like for a company that you're assessing. Yes, so first episode is ribbon. Our our financial didn't ingestion parts, so we download something on the order of you know forty fifty bytes of Tim's action data for for a company. We have to do all the work to interpret and understand what that means in reorganized that data in a way that are downstream analysis and primitives can. Make sense of and use for useful analysis so really the first step at this point job is is transformed the datum some it's useful, and then there's all the work on what are the clusters in order to machines and analysis in the computational. Resources needed to run simulations. You know not not just say local computer locally owned of fall over the only about thirty to sixty four gigabytes of Ram what league, so that's where workflow comes in creating easier faces into data, clusters and being. Should you know when you run a job? You know when it fails. You know it's done. You know when the team can't okay. This part of analysis done I had intermediate date asset to do more analysis on now get back to work is a lot of the time we spend developing internal tools to make. One other thing that'll mentioned that I think's important is. A lot of the underlying technology in our data pipeline it's no different than like what a tableau or you need. Traditional BI business would have access to, but what's fascinating when you have a vertically specific domain so financial data in our case you can make a lot of interpretations about the date of the let you do much more intelligent things, and so for example we. Don't have to make your own charts as a user of the capital machine. We make all the charts for you can of course. As a business we work with. Give us ideas for charts. You can mock up your own. We we basically have an interface for for business. The I team's to to write some code if they if they want to bought when you have clients who are thinking about financial risk, financial attribution across all of the companies that we see distilling that down into a series of indicators that are detailed, but generalize -able, and then publishing that back to all of the companies that use the capital machine to run their own capital, allocation, decisions and access, external fundraising and capital. Some pretty amazing things happen in so it's only with a vertical view. You actually having these we, we call our data scientists Kwan's, but but actually having these people who you know typically are graduate level economists, thinking for the first time about using transaction level data in their analysis, which is notoriously not not available to to normal economists that you get the kinds of insights and analysis the actionable for businesses, and then in terms of the data pipeline that then means we actually store a bunch of intermediate data that's opinionated in that way, and that makes it much faster to access much easier to benchmark much more useful across a network of companies, versus just that isolated excel model that. Explains only one business. One thing I'd like to ask you about. Capital intensity so there are kinds of businesses that are capital intensive for example where you have to pay upfront for a lot of ridesharing rides, and you know as Uber or lift. His has known in much detail. You allocate all this capital two things to subsidize rise because you try to win a market, there's all kinds of other capital intensive businesses. How does capital intensity change? What makes sense with regard to the equity financing the debt financing that you are shepherding for these companies? That is a great question and be because of where you focus in your audience. You totally get the most financiers don't so. The first point exactly like you said. Capital intensity means a business consumes a lot of capital. It doesn't mean a business has a physical factory or plant or railcars, so it is absolutely true exactly like you said that there are a lot of tech businesses that are incredibly capital intensive. If you are capital intensive business that means UNI especially if you're growing, you need to raise a lot of external capital, and so it is even more important that your capital or a big portion of your capital base is not dilutive. That's that's just essential. Table stakes because what you see with these businesses, the ride sharing companies are great. Example is by the time one of these things actually goes public the early owners in the business on a very very very miniscule. KEESA that business, still if you contrast that to company like Viva Systems which I think is one of the most capital capitol efficient businesses in venture history, I think that this race something like twelve or fifteen million dollars total before it went public in a at a multi billion dollar market cap. So capital intensity. Is a synonym for dilution your own way less. Than you think when you exit entities even more important that you figure out a way to raise capital non ludicrously upfront. Some broader questions zooming out in in getting your perspective. Do a thesis for what is going on in the economy right now where you look at. The fact that We have. Obvious pressures to. Reducing the size of the economy through the lack of tourism, the lack of social gatherings while the stock market climbs higher and higher, and it appears that the technology side of things is almost unaffected by Corona virus is there. Is there a thesis that you've arrived at or or their set of theses that through conversations with other people, you've found most compelling. Sure the most important thing to realize about the stock market is that it discounts all cash flows from all businesses in the stock market to infinity, and so the value, the stock market about eighty percent of the value. The stock market is. Pretty far into the future like more than three years from now, and so if you believe that the current economic crisis and this is why there's always a. At least in the Western, world, last two hundred fifty years after an economic crisis. If you believe the crisis will eventually revert, and there will be a recovery, then it only makes sense discount stock market assets by anywhere between ten and twenty five percent. If you believe businesses fundamentally going to go out of business because of this crisis, that's a different story, but that explains why something as terrible as Kobe nineteen and a pandemic. Only discount the stock market by by roughly thirty thirty five percent in a in March, but that's not what's actually going on today as you mentioned and so stock market prices now have completely recovered. That is something that we think is a little bit of out of sync with reality but I. I mention you know we're not. We don't spend too much time about the stock market beyond that we just look at you. Know Private Company fundamentals. We try to understand what's actually going on in individual businesses across all businesses that are network to see what you know what we can understand, and you know what kind of conclusions we can draw, and so if you take that Lens and you actually look at what's happening to businesses due to Cova nineteen, it's fascinating. Some businesses like think the food delivery space have gotten a lot more efficient, so those businesses lot like ridesharing businesses back twelve months ago, there was sort of a bloodbath between bunch of companies competing in local markets to acquire customers all all fighting Google and facebook console, and so forth you subsidies drivers, etc.. That's essentially stopped. These businesses incredibly profitable, the cost acquire customers has fallen by more than half a lot of cases. The channels were slot less competitive, and so if you're running one of those businesses. Now is a great time to be aggressively expanding. Weird things like commercial construction businesses. They're actually a handful businesses that we've seen do things like install windows and doors and commercial buildings whose businesses have accelerated because all of these buildings are closed down. Construction project timelines have gotten pulled up. All of these orders are coming. Do in they're you know sort of rapidly doing it solutions? There's obviously a bunch of other businesses have been that have been hurt by by the pandemic, but our general thesis are we've studied. Pretty detailed way the Spanish flu in nineteen eighteen, you know. These things eventually go away. There will be a vaccine. Economy will get back to normal, and as long as we can stay focused on working through this as as a society and of maintain our our fabric of of kind of economic progress then. DESAGUADERO values today will eventually make sense just sort of a question of of win for the stock market, and then if you're if you're actually running business in thinking about your own performance in isolation, really being clear about is now the time to invest and grow my business now the time to be very careful with my expenses interest, get through this for the next year or however long it takes for there to be a vaccine. So the way to think about your company, if I understand correctly if I was to to put in a nutshell, is that. I think of you as a data science middleman between large capital allocators, and and start ups deserving of capital, so the the sovereign wealth funds the banks the I guess. Funds of funds. These kinds of sources are essentially looking to you for guidance on where to direct the capital, and you're on the on the other side, absorbing data and creating opportunities from these startups to source the good directions of that capital. Just wrap up. Would you put any more color around that description or or refining anyway. Yeah I mean I. think that at the core of what capital is is where the. Core Technology Ambler of sort of. The private market if you think about public markets today, you've clearing-houses like the New York Stock Exchange, and you have companies that provide analysis on top of that like Bloomberg, you know we see a tremendous opportunity to shift the paradigm where you know the place where all the financial transactions happen. is also the place that collects the data improvise information for those making these decisions and yeah, so I think capitals really at the center of making a transparent technologically enabled financial marketplace. Guys. Thank you so much for coming on the show and discussing capital, and I guess one last question is. Do you have any predictions for how capital allocation for startups will look differently in five ten years? Sure so! The first prediction. And this is happening now. I mean the the infrastructure is. In place both within. And others. Most startups fairly early in their life. Think is equity only way to do this and. So. That's a cultural shift. That's that's already happened. People are starting to ask that question. The second prediction is. Seed and series a funding will be entirely unchanged. After series. There'll be a bifurcation between businesses that. Are Really. Capital intensive gigantic rnd projects think like SPACEX. The series, B. C. d. e. enough are really about building and launching a rocket. Those businesses will by and large not. Turn outside of equity to finance themselves, but there's very few of those businesses. Pretty much every other business businesses that you see raising a series B. Serie C. Will like any normal business in the entire rest of the economy raise maybe half of that capital nine allegedly either in the form of debt. Royalty financing factoring all of the other instruments that normal companies use to finance themselves in the void delusion that will happen roughly three years her. Now that'll that'll kind of we'll see obvious obvious signs of that from very early very early base, and then the final the final thing is. Steve Case talks a lot about this. With the rise of the rest, he's got this great venture fund that invests explicitly outside the coast, so kind of the rest of America and we've seen that there's there's a pretty dramatic distinction between being a coastal business non-coastal business from capital access perspective, but there's no distinction from an actual performance perspective, and so we'll start to see some of the regional. Differences in bias sees around where capital flows, go away. And so I would maybe put that on a five year timeline like raising capital is actually much more predictable, much less biased, and that's great back to the beginning of our conversation. That's great for the economy I mean every project or business that can convert capital, two products and services that people love should get finance. No questions asked doesn't mean it doesn't matter what the color of your skin is. What background you have whether you went to college didn't go to. College doesn't matter. You have a business with data that can prove whether people love it

"ambler" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"Ambler, but say he resisted and push back on the officers, as he refused to follow the verbal commands, but the body camera footage captures ambler in distress. Multiple Times on the video. Ambler is heard sane. He can't breathe and that he's not resisting. Several minutes into the arrest officers realize ambler is unresponsive. You can no longer hear him talking on the video. Officers unhandcuffed ambler and can be heard administering CPR compressions until medical units arrive on the scene. Investigation since now. Right now you understand. Is that the district? There are multiple invested investigation. Still ongoing spoke with the District Attorney in Austin Texas because that is where the pursuit ended there in Travis. County, just south of Williamson. County the DA tells me tonight that they are in the process of trying to present this case to a grand jury for consideration of criminal charges they were had hoped to. To do that in March, but because of covid pandemic, they could not empanel a grand jury. They're hoping that that can be done by June July at some point Anderson..
Whats Next for Bombardier?
"So could that happen? Could there be a could Canada which is subsidized this company in the past come through with an infusion of cash to pay off debts or subsidies. Those never had any ambition. Come it's interesting. The Canadian governments made it clear. They keep a close eye on this. I don't know if they would step in adding any sort of rescued. He wouldn't be risky deal. Because it's not a case of giving body now. It's kind of. It's kind of dumb but it had to do. Quebec SAYS NO WAY. And they're not gonNA do more but that the Mahdi will go back to them next because developing new airplanes that go to keep developing nuclear plant. Wildaid pay down their debt. So they'll be back to the government looking for looking for some sort of support and that's just fact of life so so what's the next bit actually gets wrapped up into the eight hundred ten day? Two Twenty story because it affects Embraer Number Casino. Random Body a arrivals that go back to the very beginnings of all of this so some really by by by giving selling the twenty in its entirety of and the twenty five percent is owned by Quebec itself. In Abbasi's now I was totally under the age of twenty before. This airbus was always constrained in what it could do to the airplane because Bombardier had to match investment and body didn't have the money right so so it was sort of official throttle book done with the eighty twenty. Well that's been moved right. That governor has been removed they can ramp up action which they have to do in order to break even and and get the cost of their into wary should be they can stretch airplane. They can now basically. They can pump money into the bottom end of the of the narrow body airliner market to twenty they could bunny at the top end of the narrowbody market with three twenty one. Xl Exit and they can literally take the legs off. And the head of Boeing in that market they now got in essence blank sheet to go do what they want to that market. Which we're Boeing at the moment doesn't know which way to go where to going out to take it even kill it and it would only have cost them less than six hundred million right because that's how much they paid. You have the whole program dinner. They have complete freedom moment. It seems to be an airplane that the market wants so if they can find customers push production rate up than than they've been so so that that. Then that then puts the pressure on Boeing and rare who earned in the middle of trying to put this commercial aviation joint venture together. 'cause that no held up by the Europeans who are still reviewing and delaying a decision. And so and it's becoming critical that makes it critical for Embraer. What happens next in the rumor that we think the reason the Europeans haven't proved it yet is because there's a W. T. O. Large airliner tariff dispute between America and Europe. Airbus and Boeing and that there's another decision coming in May or June and everybody's waiting to see what kind of penalties Europe applies against the US. And how President? Trump reacts to that and the belief is that the Europeans may be holding this approval of Ambler as leverage one piece of leverage against trump tariffs. And so. It's a big ugly mess that Doesn't seem to have an easy resolution really. It's become almost critical to embarrass. You know they. They had a successful commercial aviation business before they went into this plan. Joint Venture Boeing sort from Boeing. Side Ed at the generally accepted reasoning is they did this as a response to. Airbus become involved in the twenty. Didn't have a response to an airplane to compete against twenty. They tied up with ember who had an airplane. That's not quite the same. But it's but they could probably get into that market plus. They had a big engineering birth force that Boeing could access etc etc but the intervening months. That's how long it's been going now. This this whole thing of the joint venture things more more difficult going forward for because their next generation of Egypt's is not selling the way the previous generation dates. So they they're not commercial side. Their future is not as strong as it might have seemed a couple of years ago. They are trapped in same business jet conundrum that everybody else's which is they have some great products but they're selling to the same customers over and over again they're not really bringing new people into the market and they they have to launch a new airplane. They haven't engineering workforce doing a lot of the moment. They have to put money into a new airplane the daily way that they can do it. It's the existing market increased competitive pressure push the pricing down even further. So you're looking at at at body number. Even though they're sort of coming super doing it differently a facing exactly the same Prussia's so could they come on with me here is what call it what you want them? Bardy? Am Rear something like that. Heard it I rare but you won't pay for it. Looks absolutely fantastic. Because if you put the budget let you would have the entire business jet industry one company from the from the Lightest Jed to the biggest cabinet. But you know Cabestan the market you. Would you would not reduce competition whatsoever and you would fundamentally doubled down on your product development demands because this market needs new products on regular basis. This is not like L. Industry. We did develop an airliner and you can milk it for fifteen years the same basic airplane fifty years. Sometimes the long business aviation because you're constantly selling back to the same customer base the only way to get the mantle of airplane you just to them is by offering them a battery plant. So it's like a comedy. It's a five year cycle. It's like oh but it's more like a college cycle and go to continually Roy existing customer base out of what they fly into your next offering. So it's a constant investment draw and and putting together would look Winston traders fantastic. But it wouldn't it. Would not solve industry's issues with overcapacity too. Many models too many manufactures. But I just want to add one final point there. Which is if you're a government official. In in one of these countries there may be a certain appeal to them combining because of course for probably a near mid term. It would guarantee that the John's work remained in May not do anything to help Biz have but when you are responsible for national champion like rare. Rda You definitely don't want to see it go away. And that's different than I don't think anybody would call Gulfstream or textron Cessna products necessarily national champions. I'm not trying to. I'm not trying to bruise. Their Egos and say that. They're not great companies. But I don't think America looks at them the way that Brazil looks at Embraer. In Canada. Looks at bombarding.

I just basically went went to rehab with a bunch of like fat sixty year old man. He smoked twenty cigars and drank eighteen. Read one day and I do a little off. Ours is like twenty eight year old kid. Gun Did have a nice dyson but you know it was twenty eight. I said how an intervention to stop. You got fired right because you couldn't bike and carry around your bags and then we just had like a head of shit run then so always like this will happen on my twenty first day on like. Hey that's cool so yeah so then. Don't buy tried to get back into work. Okay I mean. I couldn't do anything for three months now. You can't do anything like you. Hot like rid fragile. You've got really slowly build it back up Yada Yada Yada so I I liked fun. Hunting just bored out my tongue because all my make everyone else. He's like running off to exact zoff prices and doing crazy jobs and all the rest of it So then I go back into. I was able to work then. I think three months which was not some reflection and and I was like cavalier like yeah fun and jumps right back on the bike riding hot because the hottest thing was not the physical exercise but where they cracked cracked my chest. Though when I had to backpack on it would pull my shoulders pot. Really bad pains in my chest which was quite nerve wrecking. When you've just had open awesome so I couldn't really do much and I couldn't you know very scared like sitting in a cost more than ten minutes? I'm never sitting in the car again. I'm right if I'm going anywhere. I'm riding the walking. By my CEOS size plummet plummet plummet and then the recession hit and they were like yet. We've got to cut. We're going to go all the wait until they fired me. This US whole of my old boss fired me on my birthday a year later. Yeah Gary Morgan. So you're fired from the Paparazzi Life Life and you shortly thereafter propose or had you already proposed or when did this brilliant. He'll do mindless nuts. Kate was just trooper and all that kind of stuff through me. Stop with me while I kinda went through that time to get back in and then also got five from that. I got the shit. And let's just like you. He's always say what's in a restaurant as a waiter and it was like a major from A shitload of money in this action goes a long way in new Able just throwing money. Yeah I mean you know but then it was ironic. Because then I'd like a restaurant Cook shop and like I said Jimmy Fallon all all the time I'd be like Larry like these people everywhere I just. I don't really give a shit about it. Kate winslet was another one that used to come in all the time she she actually recognize me because we had a shot in the street. One Yeah as always we're all good But yeah so yeah. I did that for that. Never got backing folks working with a company in London doing just kinda crazy documenta trees and doing a bit video more new story stuff which was good fun and then probably some wife and she remarkably said yes And that's where the idea came about. I would've been cool to have like really scraping noise pictures of like you know the proposal because I don't remember any of it. I was shaking like shifting dogs. Mice this is the time until it was already but So like just to have the mind and catch would have been really cool. So did the NOGIN. I'm from from now. Just kind of start doing that research and I was like no. It's doing it. I was like laser for songs. I that was huge. They stop you know all day long. Okay so easy. I don't WanNa get back in the game so I'm going to see if I can do this so I kind of went about putting together a business plan line trying to work out like the market revenues. All that Boring Shit and then Louis managed to raise money for notice. The company though gracious mistake of my life was the name to the original name was the question. What's the title much how much people what we are online kind of took the to even say the word thing around here goes? Yeah Yeah Yeah. They would like it was like. He's just hilarious. He's like I do realize how fast we could be but Yeah author while I was like hunt getting some pushback on this name. Let me change the name. Yeah then I changed. Rod Supervisors on And then things because I went on the today show's Unlike Matt or his name is Matt Lauer. Yes yeah OK P he He sorry Soviet take for He interviewed me and I kind of did some funny stuff from him. When Prince Harry Cool no pinch how Prince William Remember Limbaugh? Kate Middleton got caught with it from. Yeah Yeah Yeah when they just got married. Well Yeah my mate. Then we'll know it was Ben Wilson. But I'm not going to get someone going into trouble. I know that and it wasn't just the out. That was the issue. Apparently she was polishing the old crown jewels. If you know why they had about the Patriots. 'cause they were like they really need that going out Anyway Connie remember when you were on. TV talking about they went they went to the ASO. You yeah and I was like why simple and get paid. You get your kicks out today. Show with Matt Lauer Matlock yeah No but you did do for your company including Shark Tank and you got an offer but then you decided against it and it feels like you probably was the right move your you don't have to pay thirty percent of what you make to the to the sharks. Yeah I mean like it was a weird deal so like shark tank amazing experience like learning Kevin Really really lovely people realize that people that work with very very cool I didn't realize how many of the kind the deals off to the show breakdown. Because obviously you know you'll make decisions like their land and giving out all the information so yeah it didn't it didn't happen but to be honestly you it was awesome because they keep playing it and he's getting replay replay. So yeah that was very cool experience very lucky but point to fit me in the awesome. Because you can't protect start if it's obviously so like waiting for guy out there and standing up you know a church and saying GonNa take pictures for a wedding. Yeah yeah no one can stop everyone else doing it. So it was like a massive success we lose the business and then it crashed of course going on and it was because basically everyone and then copied it and all the rest of it so yeah. It's been a struggle with backup on right now. And of course that led to the greatest invention invention which I know you're busting the crush and start talking about speaking of Crotch seems yes they did so To catch everyone up. I was watching sports sporting events. Trolling around on twitter. And someone someone tweets into my time line this short video for this great invention where it looks like a camera phone case and when you actually open it it of ring pops up and you can then record video or photos of someone as you're proposing so you would need a Paparazzi proposal. Let's say for instance. I got engaged in the middle all of Africa right so we probably couldn't afford to fly you on out there James to record so my husband maybe now maybe now maybe things are going well now maybe before and so I saw this very funny video. That's not supposed to be funny but I found it funny because the gentleman proposing has like seems on the Crotch of his jeans that almost are like almost like underwear like in the placement. And so I said you know. I don't know what's worse this phone thing here. This guy's Crotch seems what is he wearing. And then I posted it to facebook and there you worse moving in with the hey. I invented that the sweat and I was like Oh my God I feel so bad. IBM guys jeans. Just really threw me off so then I'm like Oh my God. Oh Oh my God well. I hope you didn't hire that actor. Well I hope you don't actually know him Haha. Hope he's not your best friend and then you came in with. That's the guy who invented it with me. The pockets of sweat my God and my friends were like we watched the exchange as it happened like what it was amazing. I was like beds not like. Oh my God. He's amazing it was like. What are you doing what you got your badge inventor James which to be honest? I've not really really won any awards. The greatest president ever got out of my kids of course of course. Yeah so oh so. It does allow people to stream it live or take photos or videos as they're proposing it has like a battery pack in it so it doesn't look suspicious and so so if you are somewhere where you can have a Paparazzi hiding in the bushes and taking photos. This was the dishes thing key. Lovely lovely money casually yeah. Let's saw him Kevin No Kevin K- love thanks to me. Once your proposal say we. We did this crazy puzzle up in Boston..

Whatever it may be they would invite us into certain things to shoot? And we'd you've been set the agency would then send it to magazines or whatever so we were actually officials talk with that.

Roller kids used to go skateboarding. And we both thought we look the coolest which a aim nine hundred ninety six probably was neither of us but So I missed my dad's film camera and I used to take pictures of him skateboarding and he'd take pictures of me skateboarding And I realized about point like capturing certain since you could look at the pitch and remind you of you know moment in time or trick. Raleigh kid was doing or whatever it may be it was really cool and that essentially started the bug so from then I just got off everything on a skateboard for quite some time and then I did I was trying to get into like an apprenticeship in England they call it. Which is where you don't get university? You kinda worked with the company for three or four four years learning the skills that you wanna learn which always massive believer of 'cause I can. Hey School was like yeah I wanna go on and So I kind of looked around and couldn't really get Unaccounted for the kids. So I had a different cost to get into into kind of college. I went to a very strict kind of all boy school which the first year that I started that they let twelve unsuspecting goes into an old boy schools. It was chaos. It was Kale. I like the odds but it was like. Yeah Yeah it was. Yeah it was just. It was horrible But anyway I guess so. Yeah that was very strict and then when I left that school I went to college and just basically went. This is amazing the rest of that so I never really did like the university thing until much later and realizing I couldn't get a job because I needed a degree even still oh you know simple apprenticeship stuff. I figured that I'd go back to college so I went and did my I did my a levels in photography Griffey and Media Studies and Film Studies. Toby element of a really really loved and in that trip. I was getting travel bugs. I lived in a really small country town. In England. Mild man was the Likud too. So he'll hear wantage which can offer but some takes or something like that under these roundtable really bonded with the town So yes I I I really wanted to travel and get out of this small country town and so I found this thing in the newspaper. That said that you could Raise money for charity. See for kids in wheelchairs and that would allow you to raise your setting amount of money. You got trekking for fourteen days in the foothills of the Himalayas Brian. I like always seventeen the time so I fix my mates in the pub. I was like come on. We will do this. We can have a free holiday. It'd be a love off and they were boring and said I then I way so I just said on my end so I raised on US money for kids. It's really fantastic charity. That helps kids in wheelchairs and stuff and Raise the money and surely out Katmandu like four days off the my eighteenth birthday and it was really weird selection of like like old people that wanted to do something crazy and just pay the money to charity and loads of other people is that sixty s and we check through the foothills of the Himalayas and I have my dad's old film camera and we got about fourteen thousand feet and everyone fat cheese in this sense. He's not cameras died on my cameras. Cameras anyone on the trip but the rest of the trick so I came back with these pictures and kind of develop them on my phone features said that. Ah That's the picture that will kind of take your career guy further What's really cool to hear so from that I just went off to university and Media study did a professional on his in photography. And yeah the goal. was that into Wolf until a school. Where did you end up getting so I went to university in Cheltenham Gloucestershire Which of everything? Everything's just like yeah sixteen is low minimum So yes so it's university there And that was a law but again I kind of didn't really like the conformity of having to sit in a dog. I'm not really a studio Soga. I just love to travel and get out so break down so so buffet and skateboarding again We had local Gypsies that came through the town so I went camping with them for a week. and just might load the weed and watch them just knock grounding their caravans for a week and did a story on that which Everyone loves and then my oh man has a charity in Thailand. so He's been got enough for the audience and he does catch acts operations on people that have gone curry or whatever it is to restore sight in the refugees. Oh Jeez so I decided from university fungal. I'd go out and follow him around. Doing you know what he does. But I'd always heard I've never been on it yeah so we're now that's two and a half weeks and again. That was the travel thing I was like. I just WanNa travel and take pictures And that's where I thought needs to talk to you. Take me so then Sorry I'm probably rambling leaving the take. These travels though are what gave you the real bug. Yeah it was kind. I'm just like okay. Fine you and I have a job. I WANNA have a job but makes me go places because that was all I wanted to do was like travel and see me places so as the yeah if your dad is a doctor and sounds like he's accomplished and studious person. What was it about your upbringing? That maybe made you think like I. I don't want to have a real job and go to school forever. All of my family of traveled so like when I was born about six weeks off the knife probably six months after I was born my dad my to allay his buddies all made that Africa can build a hospital and train. All the people Just North East and we live for two years in Iraq and then my oh man. The brother has traveled a lot around Africa As adults to a my sister's a doctor I don't really know. Oh you are the black sheep. Yeah Yeah I'm I'm why don't you get labeled with it. You really have to sell it. So this thing uh-huh okay. So yes that's where the travel thing came from. Yeah so yes so then I did type stuff kind of spelling anyway. Let's go back because I know that when you were in school you wrote your dissertation on propaganda during the Vietnam War and how it was the first documented and televised televised. I'm great at my job. James Yeah well did you see how I how I spell for journalism. uh-huh white patients in it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life because I cannot write to save my life and yet took me sorry. Sorry Long Day and handed it over to that and I was like you've got to be shifting. They are even push penny mistake on the types of two one. Oh stuff is the but wait so because that that idea originally to be a war photographer or even a news photographer requires not just being in the right place and being a good photographer. But you know the institutional knowledge to know what you're covering and why it matters. That seems like maybe a little too buttoned up for you. I really like I just I love for crossing real things and stuff. We'll things that kind of had. Meaning how would you run it because I ran into Brazzi but Yeah I just found this like glasses..

Camila Cabello apologizes for racist Tumblr posts from 2012
"Two days ago a twitter user at motivate fendi posted a string of tweets calling Camila Cabello out for allegedly posting racist content on a tumbler. Ambler Account Oh no. They didn't summed up the tweet. Thread saying quote motivate fantasy. Found Camilo. Cabezas tumbler page one. Camilla confirmed was hers receipts in the thread and started a thread last night. That includes a million anti-black re blogs xenophobic re blogs referring to the Asian language as Ching Tong Language and going for the hat trick a re blog. Making light of Rana's assault at the hands of Chris Brown and quote. I personally looked through the entire thread and let me just say. I don't know if I've ever seen so many racist memes in one place. It was like reading a toxic four Chan threat or something. The meme that Camille allegedly reposted making fun of Chris. Brown beating Riana is especially vile at motivate. fendi updated the tweet thread adding at the end quote up date. It appears that community deleted Vu attests bell. Luckily I archive all the links in this thread on the way back machine last night. Eight and quote wvu attests bell. I don't know if I'm saying that right. But I guess that was the name of cumulous Account Camilla logged onto twitter last night and while she didn't confirmed the tumbler posts were hers. She did apologize for her past comments in a lengthy apology in the form of a screen shotted image of text now. Technically CABELA's apology wasn't on the IPHONE. Notes APP she clearly road it in like an instagram story but the spirit of the notes up is alive. Live in this apology. So I'm still going to award it with the coveted notes APP apology of the week. Notes APP apology of what we how in a screen shotted image that included a black background with white currier text Camilla road quote when I was younger I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language I was deeply the embarrassed I ever used it. I apologize then and I apologize now I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart as much as I wish I could. I can't can't go back in time and change things I said in the past but once you know better you do better and that's all I can do. I'm twenty two now. I'm an adult and I've grown and learned I am conscious and aware of the history and the paint. It carries in a way that I wasn't before those mistakes don't represent the person I am or a prison I've ever been. I only stand Dan and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never even then had any chance of hate divisiveness. The truth is I was embarrassingly. Ignorant Unaware I use my platform to speak out about injustice and inequality. And I'll continue doing that. I can't say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed. I feel and I apologize. Today's again from the bottom of my heart and quote even after posting this apology. It still seems like people are pretty upset by Camilla's former posts. A lot of people are saying that regardless of how much she regrets it by age sixteen. You should know that riposting racist content and using the N.. Word Ad Nauseam is unacceptable acceptable.

"ambler" Discussed on Swing Left - How We Win
"Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determination and we are all ordinary people but we had have extraordinary determination because we know that if we don't choose to stand up then this epidemic of slaughter continues go on welcome to episode seven of how we win this is your weekly field report chronicling the riveting run up to the two thousand twenty election all over the country ordinary people are doing ordinary things we'll give you the tools that you need to jump in and make a difference right now the best antidote for anxiety is action today's episode is a special look at the presidential gun safety Stephen I took a trip to Las Vegas to talk to the people who are making a difference fighting to end this epidemic of gun violence I reset down with the junior senator from Connecticut Chris Murphy he talks about what it was like to run for office at such a young age and gives us a glimpse inside the gun legislation debate in the Senate then we're going to hear about the progress that has been made to fight gun violence over the last seven years from the executive director of Gifford's you don't WanNa miss any of these updates let's I'm Steve Pearson Mariah Craven and this is how we win the president of the United States has to stand up to the NRA and say enough is enough. I'm not going to any longer accept your false choice you're either in favor of the second amendment or you want to take everyone's guns away we've seen just over the last few months the ground ship the center of gravity moves so much further into the direction of commonsense gun policy there is a moral power that comes from a student of child anyone looking into the eyes of somebody in authority and by authority I mean anybody old enough to vote that sets off a voice in the back of your head that says do not let this person down that's what we have right now a government that works really well for the gun industry it's not working for our families and we got a chance to around twenty twenty implicated it is not about them it's not the NRA it's not just the corporate gun lobby it's US we all have to take responsibility truly extraordinary moment in Las Vegas last week where a lot of presidential candidates talk about gun safety and gun reform that's right they had ten of the top candidates committed unfortunately Bernie had his heart issues he wasn't able to attend but nine candidates talking about the issue of gun violence and giving their ideas and plans for combating it yet and we at an opportunity to be there and talked to some folks that are just doing incredible work on this issue can't wait for everyone to hear them yeah gave me a lot of hope it really did I I learned a lot being there and talking to Senator Murphy and Peter Ambler who is the executive actor of giffords and we also talked to other activists including some of the march for our lives organizers that will will have four future show but seeing what progress has really been made in the last seven years and where our national dialogue is with this rate was was enlightening for me yeah and it's hard to remember that when we have these devastating moments month after month in some cases week after week but to hear from the people doing this work every day is is make a difference in how people this topic I think yeah but before we do that we have to talk about impeachment don't we we to talk as has always about a lot of things with trump and impeachment in in the world that we're living in is just sort of one of many things going on I mean we talk about it as being that bright shiny thing rat is easy to distract from the concrete work that we can be doing volunteers and activists right now but it's important to look like it's just you know bananas first of all in his great and unmatched wisdom is talk like that I mean I've heard you talk like that but not like you know trump and my personalities similar but this is trump tweeting after he got pushback for once about his foreign policy genius with Turkey and basically leaving the Kurds he's he's basically yeah he's basically serving up uh-huh agenda on a platter to him right and seems to be in a hurry to do it because you know there's a lot of action from our elected officials are Democrats that we elected to the House that are working hard to do the job we sent them there to do which is put a check on trump holding MM accountable no one is above the law right we're not seeing the same action from the Senate and you can't help but notice that as polls show that more Americans are in favor of impeachment the craziness coming out of that White House just escalates and that's a good point the polls are showing there's more favorability for the impeachment inquiry and also actually having him removed from office we need to keep amplifying that because that's what these representatives need is they need the public behind them to to be able to move forward so in that vein we also swing left launched a House Defense Fund okay which raises money for our freshmen who have come out for impeachment and Franklin Republicans are raising a lot of money on this issue too we can't forget that impeachment has been a huge boon to the Republicans they're raising millions and millions of dollars off of it and we have some freshmen to defend who are in very vulnerable seats and were willing to come out in favor of impeachment and now they've got some targets on their campaign because of it so we'll have a link on our site the swing left dot org slash podcast site for you to donate to the House Defense Fund and the other thing that we always talk about with impeachment is the Senate and we're seeing even more reasons why the Senate is where it's at it's important we take the Senate away from the death grip of Mitch McConnell Supreme Courts back in session right the Supreme Court is hearing a case on discrimination of DBQ people in the workplace in is it okay to fire someone because of how they identify right could you ever imagine when we made so much progress during the last administration that we would have a supreme court contemplating whether it's okay to fire someone for being gay or trade hands it reminds me of what Congresswoman Karen Bass said when we interviewed her that we think we're fighting these battles and we win some of these battles that we've won and we can keep moving forward but this administration has shown us that those things can always be pushed back and that we have to keep fighting and it feels like a Sisyphean task allowed time with the boulder rolling back down but this is why added core the Republicans are willing to go along with this madman who is running their party like a cult leader right because of the Supreme Court right because of these conservative judges they've been able to put in so it's scary but we need to as you said before send maybe her Vitamins need to take back the Senate yeah that's a that's a great point that no matter how much progress is made we can never let down and so this new wave of activism has to continue to bring more people into the fold we gotta bring more voters into the fold and we have to stay in aged you know it's not just our I think we all need to take are vitamins right that's a good point yeah see strong they drink lots of water we get dehydrated to easy okay now I'm going into health this is turning to a health pod so let's register some voters in these important swing states Senate states if you're in Arizona if you're in Colorado if you're in North Carolina if you're in main if you're in Texas these are Senate states where we really need to register more voters so if you are anywhere near those states Get out there and registered voters you can put in your zip code into swing left find canvases if you're close by there had that face to face contact start registering voters now if you're from afar then you can write letters to those voters you can use vote forward that we partner with swing left We need to get more Democrats registered in these important states we also have some work to do with Virginia ah which we're we're talking long-term we're talking twenty twenty and now we're talking next month yeah yeah and and you notice interesting I've been thinking a lot about Virginia and what this election coming up next month means because first of all is going to have huge sound waves right the results of this election for both the Democratic Party and the Republicans you know trump and the Republicans are eyeing this race in Virginia because they want to see where our activists basis and if we can actually do this the other thing that I was thinking of is you know we have like take back the White House I mean we have the the White House we have to take back the Senate he know this but in a way that's like the duct tape on our democracy right that's the immediate thing that we have to do to stay opt this horrible damage that's going on but the long game right where we're gonNA build sustained power is these local legislatures especially before the census that's why Virginia is so critical the Republicans are great at doing this they have built power through local legislatures for decades and that's why they've been able to disenfranchise voters gerrymander these districts and stay in power even though the majority of us are progressive so agenda is just so important right so we're trying to flip the state legislature in Virginia there are twenty seeds that swing left has idead that flippable and will make a huge difference and need some support in the in the next few weeks because that election is in November yeah it's coming up soon and again you can make phone calls we were plugged in with these candidates we need to house of delegates seats to states that Senate seats we already have the governor so then we'll have the TRIFECTA and we can make some real long-term change and send a message to the Republicans in trump right now that we have not gone anywhere and we will not go anywhere so please volunteer help out Virginia right now that's should be like what you're thinking about what you're doing and you're an interesting thing a new poll has shown that gun reform is a top issue for Virginia voters so this is something you're hashing it about and I think if you're listening to this you probably are they need to hear from other people who are encouraging them to vote around this issue because Democrats in Virginia have some solutions that people are excited about yeah that's a really good point and a great segue into the the gun perform in the interviews that we talked about because seven years ago the gun issue was kinda toxic to politicians running for office and Democrat yeah yeah they they couldn't even really talk about it openly and now because of this great work led in large part by young people by the Parkland students for our lives organizers and others it's been a top issue and it's it's right up there with health care and climate change so I'm excited for you guys hear about our interviews that we did remotely from the field and if you weeks were excited to bring you interviews with two young women for March for our lives who are going to talk about the outstanding at that organization is doing right we want to do an episode just about organizing with young people in the great work that they're doing so that's Kinda come up at a couple of weeks but now we're going to hear from Senator Chris Murphy.

California governor pardons 2 ex-refugees facing deportation
"Gavin Newsom has granted pardons to two Cambodian refugees who were at risk of being deported after living their entire adult lives in this country. Both of them came to the US as refugee children with their families fleeing. The Cambodian genocide by the Kamerhe Rouge their families were resettled in bay area. Neighborhoods racked by violence king. Hen was convicted in nineteen ninety nine of grand theft and robbery he completed his sentence and was released from prison in California two thousand three, hey, hav accepted, a plea deal as a teenager for being in a gang and soliciting to commit murder. Juries twice had refused to convict him. Angela Chan with Asian Americans advancing Justice Asian law caucus which had been advocating for pardon. So the two could escape deportation by the Trump administration? She expressed happiness that newsome's pardons about newsome's part. Which are his first since becoming governor. And which came after a campaign waged by immigrant's rights advocates and the families of Cambodian refugees at risk of deportation. Here's Angela Chan we were really really worried about that because they were facing deportation to commodious as soon as in a few weeks in June and especially for their families. We're so happy because came for example, with going to a being separate from his three year old child and his partner as terminally ill, and so had been deported of his three year old likely with the orphaned. So the this action that governor is taking a crucial. It's really really important to keeping these immigrant families together, and especially their children's father are able to stay with them and take care of them. So that that's why we're really excited today and wanted to know that this is governed new some first part is. Coming in as a new governor. And we're excited that he's really willing to stand up to the Trump administration, which has been executing these inhumane and immoral rate against commodious refugee community and trying to the poor people who really came as refugees when they were babies. So does this mean a reprieve for the two of them or could they still be deported? Very likely reprieve. So the pardon allows us to go an immigration court and to reopen the deportation order, and it's very likely that will stop that partition that way. So there and for these refugees a pardon was of the few is not the only option for them. Are there still other refugees? You're hoping will also be attained able to obtain a pardon from the governor. That's right. Their number of other commodity refugees, including name Bruin, another ambler who are facing deportation. Also and could be deported does next month. And so we do have pending cases for them and are hoping that governor office also able to look at those cases and consider pardoning a other commodity refugees, including these individuals. So unfortunately, an ongoing problem because ministration been so aggressive and support refugees who've been in this country for decades, and it came here as young children fleeing genocide and war, and so we're looking to renew some to be a leader on this moving. Forward, and he certainly signaling that his willingness to be strong to be courageous and leading the way for California and for the rest of the country in exercising. His party power to protect Californians refugees are California's they've been here for decades have established their community their families hearing pitcher immensely to

"Peopling? Yeah. And what a strange tree the the. That is that it's a lonely thing to be in a compartment, you know? I mean, this is solitaire confinement. If you wanna see like look at the effects confinement has on people it, it drives the mad. They've been compartmentalized in the most in the ultimate way. They've been shoved into a box and they're closed off from other people. They're completely separated by concrete walls, and it drives them fuck, and Matt and then we hear these stories of solitary confinement. We walk around like my God. We'll thank goodness I'm not in solitary confinement in are moving cells. Like rolling solitary confinement cells where there's me in the rest of the world. And it's man those guys in prison. Boy, they've got it bad. Meanwhile, there's people in these solitary confinement cells I interviewed one of them Daming Damien Echols, and they're in their meditating because because the Dharma is reaching into the prisons, and you know, about this. You know, the zen Buddhist monks who come into the prisons, and they teach these prisoners how to sit. Yes. Yes. Yes. It's when you can't look out, you know, why at look in. Yeah. And so suddenly for some people what happens is there. They they have the paradoxical experience of being imprisoned. And yet being more free than they ever were when they were in the outside world because they're no longer locked in to this identity. That is confer a lot of people man a prison cell would be. A lot more space than the space. They've locked themselves into their psyche. You know, a prison cell to like have a nice six by six cell to stretch out in for a lot of people that some people when they stretch out there like, oh, I'm lazy. And so when they're not stretching out there like oh my God. I'm never going to get a chance to stretch. And like, you know, they can't even stretch out yet. So we'll you read about that in like in the autobiography of Malcolm X, or the story of I mean, I don't know different stories that that's what comes to mind specifically, but there's a million examples of people who are imprisoned for a certain period of time, and that ends up oddly being what spiritually liberates them because they're forced to spend time like looking inside themselves and just reflecting and not to say the prison has that affect on. Any significant number of people now. But I think that that is a very powerful realization because. You know, going about going about your day living in some sort of cubbyhole of you know, I'm this. I'm that obsessing over what different labels you're going to associate with your identity. You know, and every plagues everyone, I feel like now with the internet has sort of tracked alas culture in that way, where whether you're a corn farmer in the mid west, or, you know, like a trans activist in San Francisco or a soccer mom in Florida, or whatever like, you can have these five labels that you just smack on yourself like stickers..

Forgive the question. What is what what do you think is the difference between thoughts birds? I think it's probably easier to catch birds sometimes. Birds are also a lot Creedy. Generally, speaking thoughts can be. I think there's a lot more ugly thoughts than there are ugly. Birds depends on what the birds are thinking. Yeah, that's true. Yeah. What do birds think they probably think about that? Now d- take like herds get woken up in the morning thoughts by themselves. So the. The. Way that what one of the other aspects that I love is that it doesn't really care. So there's not a thing like in. Other religions there's like this grill. Great potential for for blasphemy, you there's an ability. So when you look at. Missionary culture, you see this? You know, someone goes to a place find some people that aren't living. According to the way, they have been taught is the right way to live and then through manipulations, sometimes four sometimes a combination of both you shift their society into the society that was thought up by your whatever profit you're following. But Buddhism comes into a place and looks around and just takes the symbols that are there and configure them in a way to help people. See something that was already there. That's what I love about it. It's not try. It's not saying this is wrong. Don't do. This does evil. It's just more along the lines of. Okay. So this is your symbol for. This is a goddess symbol for you. And this is or this is the symbol. This is how you understand nothingness or this is. Oh, you guys call it. A mean? Okay. We'll call it. A mean, you know, it translates it. In other words, I guess to simplify. Missionary culture is weird because it goes to another place. In it. Tries to make the people there speak its language. Whereas Buddhism comes to a place and learns the language in speaks that language, but what it says is the Dharma, and I think that's really cool to me. And and it seems like that is that is continuing to happen. And that's what you're part of it seems like, yeah, I used to get disillusioned with the idea that, you know, like Buddhism had become so popular and lucrative in modern culture. Yeah. And you know, and that sort of its own religious pure ISM of being like, I want this. I want this just for me. I don't want like someone to be able to see this on TV than start meditating 'cause they saw something on TV 'cause they bought an app or something. Yeah. But I think, you know, with a little with a few more years of practice in maturity, I I currently believe that it's it's a great thing in the the compatibility of Buddhist ideas and. Especially xanadu in sort of the the contradictory open ended nature of it is they're very compatible with modern life precisely because they let us speak our language. I mean, it's very hard to speak the language of. You know, a even you could say Tabet monk or you could say a Catholic monk or in his logic monk. It's very hard to speak that language in modern times because you're just going to end up feeling guilt. And shame about a lot of things, and you're gonna eventually probably end up making other people feel guilt and shame for a lot of things. So yeah, I think that that that openness to the outside that Buddhism isn't always purely focused on this monastic, south involved sort of self referential life. It's very compatible with our everyday life now. And it's funny how it crosses over with. You know, the tech world in the business world specifically through meditation. But you know, meditation is evolving to fill whatever vessel..

Because when I hear mountain ranges, you know, I think oh that's mountains. That's like ultimate four shit. I don't know if you've ever played ultimate old man on the other side of this Mike, you're really great video game. But you could go down into the earth and there were like mountains under there. And I always thought that was super cool. So you can imagine how every bit of erectile tissue on my body in fl. Claimed the moment that I saw this story as I was already inside of a hollow earth rabbit hole. This is an article from popular mechanics. All right. This is not we're not even in YouTube or not even deep in the in the fun house of the of lunacy. That is the deeper interior core of YouTube, this is popular mechanics. Deep beneath the surface of the earth. Lies an entire landscape of mountains possibly rougher and taller than any on the surface, so say Princeton GIO physicists, Jessica Irving and Wimborne. Woo hoo. Published published a story last week in science in collaboration with sedillo knee with names like that. These are like these are who are these people from the institute of geodesic GIO their Chinese and geophysics in China. The researchers use scattered seismic waves registered during an epic magnitude eight point two earthquake that struck Bolivia and nine hundred ninety four to map the topography of a boundary layer six hundred and sixty kilometers straight down. On. This layer called the transition zone is about one hundred and fifty five miles thick it divides earth's mantle into an upper and lower section revealing the interior of our planet to be far more complex than the Tri tone crust mantle core models boring or used to Irving and woo found that the top of the transition zone at about two hundred and fifty five miles deep is smooth for the most part and drastically different from the roughness at the six hundred sixty Coloma ter- boundary, which is what they started calling it for lack of a better word. They don't wanna call it. What it is though. Although. When your data lies foreign side, the earth the bigger and deeper earthquake. The better says Irving, the shockwaves they sent out and all directions can travel through the core to the other side of the planet and back again. Okay. So now, you know, this is I keep I keep you know, going through. Okay. Here's your I keep going through it. And it's like, that's it. That's it. There's nothing in there about like holy shit. There's mountains under the earth. What the fuck it says here at the very end of this article. It's like the real world geophysicist redo on Jules Verne's journey to the center. Is it redux how fucked you say that God damn? I'm dumb, geophysicist redo, I try to make friend. Maybe it is. I'm not gonna look it up. I'm going to call it a redux. Can I get a reduction some burn over here? I'd like Jules Verne redux and all right now, that's popular mechanics that appears to be saying. There are mountain ranges under the planet. And no one's talking about it. Why is this not national news? Why is this not being why are they announcing this at targets across the country. This should be there should be planes flying over with banners on the back saying there's mountains under there. There's huge spaces under their mountains. But no, it just kind of it's gonna float away just like everything else. Cool this kind of fantasy. But maybe not who knows regardless that is from popular mechanics. Look it up yourself if you're a geologist out there. Correct me, please. I tweeted at this brilliant. Princeton scientist, I did not expect a response tweeted her to two AM. There. There's the point it. But maybe she'll write me back who knows regardless. That's this sort of has the science part. Now, my friends I present to you the story of Admiral Byrd. The famous explorer who seems to have stumbled upon something and the north and south poles..

"Hi, phil. How you? I'm fine. What we're Pennsylvania, ambler, Pennsylvania. I thought you said Amway ambler, ambler, ambler. I didn't know Amway had bought an entire city. I wish they would run it better. So what's up what's going on film gentleman? You are experts in all matters of the heart, and you are experts in all things automotive. And I think that makes you uniquely qualified dance take care of a problem for me. I hope so too. What would you be disappointed? If we don't. My wife is extremely sensitive to every noise that a car can make everybody abrasion. She feels in the car is very paranoid about car. Breaking down probably at night, probably at a state, probably with our two daughters aboard and all the evils society descending upon her. Yes. And behind the real events, seventy eight Valera. Oh, go ahead. If he was married to an auto mechanic, her car would be in topnotch condition that he would never have to worry about these things before she runs off with the guy from the corner station. I want you to prove her wrong or you did only talk to my wife. Okay. I believed that all wives voter mechanics and driving around in bombs with duct tape in the bag. Well, I mean, the old theory about the cobbler's, son and all that stuff. Here's the problem that I have at least, according to my wife know, I think she's wrong about this. But my wife to is very sensitive to noises vibrations and other things just the problem of the week. Or is this a ongoing this is ongoing. This is one of the ten thousand problems. Yeah. I know. Yeah. But she claims that I don't how how do you say? I don't take her opinion seriously enough. She says to me something is wrong with the car. And I say what she says doesn't seem to be going. Good. And I say was that me, and she says, well, I don't know. And I say, okay. And then I leave. I say next time. I drive it. I'll I'll see if I notice he then he drives it he notices nothing. And then JoAnne calls me. Asking me to take it for a ride. And if I noticed nothing wrong, she says, okay? I guess I was just imagining something, and that's the end of it. Yeah. I would not I agree with her though this something wrong with the car. No, not more often than not. She's right. Even when you say, you don't find anything wrong with it. Because I think the problem is this as as sensitive as we are, right? Will never be as sensitive as women. We can't do it. We don't know how to do it. And so they probably have some inner force that is helping them to diagnose things, at least to know that something is wrong. Then we will ever be able to do. Right. But if she dumped me and married Anonima Cannock, he wouldn't get any anybody listening to her any better. No, no. She might question. Wasn't it? Yeah. Well, I mean does this guy have a boat. Maybe that's the overriding reason she's dumping you. I mean. I mean, I remember when my wife, drove her seventy six Volvo wagon, which I helped her pick out and gear. It was a couple years ago. And she drove this car for many years, and she kept complaining about various things, and I have caused kept saying just keep driving it. He's Volvo Volvos don't break down until Finally I buy some steak drove the car, and it died in the middle of mass Avin Todd square and smoke poured out of it people came and pulled me out of the car. This was after we just worked on. And she finally, you know, she she was very diplomatic. I should say about it. She said, not condescending. I guess I was right. Bozo. So back to the question, though, will will your life be driving? A a safercar if she's married to a mechanic as one What of do the. we say? Well, she wasn't. Call the shop in disguise her voice to make points to get her car. She try and like a Romanian accent. What was the lady that always played in those dry, Maria ospent sky? These Marie I have my car. Visit you know, my wife never had an unsafe car. I always make sure that when she drove her car with the children in it. It was always safe there. Okay. Good luck, man. Thank you, gentlemen. One eight eight eight car talk or one eight eight eight two two seven eight two five five low you're on car talk..
