Dr. Bob Shillman and Charlie Discuss High School Standards and CRT

"In Aragon, the state law has changed. About the requirements for graduating high school. That's right. It no longer requires proficiency in mathematics and I'm not talking about calculus here. We're talking about basic math. Graduating with a high school diploma does not require competency in mathematics, nor reading or writing. So you will be able to grant people in Oregon will be able to get a high school diploma while their illiterate illiterate. So what does a high school diploma then mean? What does it mean if there's no standards? It means that you're able to be an activist. You showed up. You showed up? That's right. Just like participation participation. And that's what really started with ten years ago. That's right. And this moves on to critical race theory. And I didn't know what it was, so I had to look it up. CRT. The theory says that racism is a part of everyday life in America because racism is in the DNA of every white America. A might American. Whether they know it or not, they are automatically racist. This is being taught in our schools. That America is fundamentally flawed from 60 19 or whatever date they want. It became racist. Now, if that's the case, how did Barack Obama get to be president for 8 years? You know, I'm struck by this. Or why did more blacks come through legal immigration since 1980 than ever came to the slave trade? Why does so many blacks want to come to this country? If it's so racist and awful and colonialistic, you see the presupposition they come from, is it's actually brilliant in one sense. You can never prove it wrong. Because they state something that can never be proven right or proven wrong. It's everywhere. What is everywhere? The air? No, no, no. Racism. And so then you call them out for it. I do this all the time. We'll prove it to me. Well, you can't see it because you're white. Oh, so your entire operational thesis is that we're, we have something in our systems in our DNA. That's everywhere. You can't tell me where it is, but if you would be able to tell me where it is, I can't find it because of my skin color. They say yes.

What is blockchain. What are the use cases for blockchain and is the blockchain market headed adam as a writer and editor i know you've worked closely alongside our analysts as they dive into blockchain in published reports. It would be great if you could start us off. With a little overview of what blockchain is yeah sure thing so blockchain enables the authentication and secure delivery of data through distributed ledgers system. Blockchain technology works by maintaining all transactions. And it can be used for identity verification. It has strong cryptography. That ballots chains together blocks of transactions. Making it very difficult to tamper with or manipulate transaction record and one of the main uses for blockchain that we hear about is crypto currency while currencies such as bitcoin do leverage blockchain technology blockchain applications are actually much broader than just cryptocurrency latina. Something that aragon has started covering more extensively this year. And i've been noticing a lot more content surrounding blockchain lately in general. Is there a certain shift in the blockchain market. That's causing this. Whoa ceylan in twenty twenty one. There's already been a surge of interest in crypto currency which i mentioned earlier and other blockchain related financial transactions as well and this is partly due to general interest in the stock market. But it's also fueled by the soaring prices of currencies like bitcoin as the crypto currency market. Grows it directly affects the blockchain market more investment capital will go into blockchain research development and consumers will become more comfortable incorporating blockchain solutions into their everyday lives. So we've already seen many exciting applications of blockchain emerging to solve enterprise needs in twenty twenty one that makes sense the more. The market grows the more comfortable people become using these new technologies which will only cause market to grow more. I agree but why is it important for enterprises to understand blockchain. Jim can you share some insight assure thing for enterprises than what we could both strategist chief digital officers. Having understanding of the blockchain market and the key players and technologies are in the market can prove to be an invaluable tool for making long term strategic. Plans around what. We're calling business applications because a lot of the blockchain systems are actually allowing for new applications. So we think there's a strong long term potential for change solutions and that the is well positioned for increasing adoption in enterprise over the next four to ten years There's been a lot of things have gone on that. We'll talk a little bit about but we suggest a business leaders who are spas for planning have to be clear understand the transform power even of these new technology.

When Currencies Fail: Bitcoin Google Searches in Turkey Rise 400% as Lira Crashes

"Let's move to our main discussion and there are really two parts of the story that we're going to cover. The first is the devastating crash of the turkish lira. The second is the response of people in that country who found their money worth dramatically less than it was just a few days before first of all what happened between sunday evening and monday. The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa. Istanbul one hundred stock index was down as much as nine point four percent which is the biggest sell-off since june. Two thousand thirteen. The nasdaq listed shares. Msci turkey efl seventeen point five percent pre market in the us. The cause of all this on early saturday morning. Turkish president aragon unexpectedly fired nasi ball. though central. Bank governor who had been appointed in november at the center of their disagreement was how to approach inflation. So let's step back and actually look at the scenario inherited oddball. He was the third central bank governor in two years in november the year that he came to power the annual inflation rate was fourteen point zero three percent. According to the turkish statistical institute by december it was up to fourteen point six percent now these are just official numbers and some argue that it's actually much higher on november twelfth twenty. Twenty johns hopkins. Economists hanky tweeted everyday. I accurately measure inflation in turkey today. Measure it at thirty five point six one percent this year as opposed to the official number of eleven point eight nine percent after that fourteen point six percent number came out in december. He said that it was actually twenty. Five point eight five percent per year even holding that aside if you just take the official number nearly fifteen percent inflation a year a staggering that means a having of your purchasing power every year and this has been going on for a long time sue from three hours capital tweeted last night fun fact. The reason turkish lira is t. r. l. is because they've already redenominated before due to massive hyperinflation. Let's add a little more color than about the previous year and a half. The central bank had been keeping interest rates low or at least below consumer inflation. And as we've discussed before on this show. Negative real rates mean investors are discouraged from holding that sovereign debt as well as from holding lira or lira-denominated assets. These have been the policies for eighteen months or more and by fall. The currency was at all time. Lows added to. This fire was the way the turkish central bank had been trying to prop up the lira. Selling more than one hundred billion dollars in us foreign reserves in order to keep the lira from completely cratering in the process this destroyed and depleted their foreign exchange reserves and lead them to actually owing more dollars to turkish banks than the central bank actually had determined. Opposition leaders ask for judicial probe into the official reserves as of november. The country looked to be heading to a full on balance of payments crisis. And on top of this there have been major questions around the independence of the central bank from president. Aragon aragon infrequently given the central bank direct monetary policy instructions had dismissed two governors in the previous sixteen months effectively. When we really take a step back. Turkey has been on the see-saw between currency crisis and inflation. On the one hand and massive austerity and growth slowing interest rate hikes. On the other a currency crisis twenty eighteen led to increase interest rates. And by summer of the next year aragona points quote a friend to cut rates by mid-november when oddball came in it was a swing back to the interest rate hikes austerity side of the pendulum. The first act of akbal as he came in was to immediately raise the central banks one week repo rate which is an interbank lending rate from ten point. Two five percent to fifteen percent now. Interestingly this had started to work things were looking more positive from currency perspective at least in early. Twenty twenty one. Daniel call tweeted this morning. The turkey central bank helped make lira one of the best currencies versus the us d- in twenty twenty one curbing money supply growth via rate hikes helping reduce inflation. The turkish lira was up three point zero seven percent from december thirty first twenty twenty two march nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. It had been down twenty percent the year before it also saw something like fourteen to twenty billion of foreign fund inflows into turkish assets over that same period which reversed years of the opposite direction. Basically the interest rate hikes austerity were performing well in the context of global currency markets. But ogbah clearly didn't believe inflation was getting under control to the degree that he wanted to. He raised rates again to seventeen percent and then finally on the thursday before his dismissal raise them much more than expected to full. Nineteen percent and so the pendulum is swinging back again from interest rate hikes and toward at least in the minds of investors runaway inflation. The newly appointed governor saheb cops. Yo glue said that beating. Inflation is the bank's main objective but also said that they're committed to lowering borrowing costs and bolstering growth. Money managers. basically think he's going to be forced to lower interest rates and accept currency depreciation and indeed the other place. This is showing up is in the cost of insuring. Turkey's government debt against default the price of which rose more than fifty percent over the weekend. What's more this move. And the switch. From ball to cops iaglu super reinforces the narrative that central banks lack independence from erdogan. As well casio glue is a party. Loyalist bloomberg's chief emerging markets. Economists said quote the hit to the central bank's credibility and independence can't be overstated to gone has battered the institutions with interventions that have repeatedly financial markets. Were willing to give ball a chance. His successor will find it hard to build that trust again. So let's talk now about the other dimension to this that you might have caught if you were on twitter. Google searches for the term bitcoin in turkey more than quadrupled over the weekend after akbal sacking wise. That happening while one part of it may be the idea that bitcoin provides in inflation hedge and just a different currency to get away from lira volatility. Which by the way all it using bitcoin to get away from volatility where they don't tell you when they're trying to critique bitcoin is that people can stomach more volatility if there's some possibility that those seventeen percents swings or also to the upside as well but the other part of it is that as i mentioned the new governor has said that they are committed to fighting inflation but doesn't want interest rates to be the tool because they messed with growth. What are there other tools then. Bing bing bing capital controls restricting the flows of capital out of lira and lira-denominated assets so one question might be alongside. Google searches is are we. Seeing an increase in exchange activity owner goes pack. A consultant at the bbc turk pro exchange said that there was a spike in volume and that it was four both usd t tether as an alternative to us dollars and bitcoin on btc turk the bitcoin turkish lira pair has the highest volume with the tether turkish lira pair being the second highest now. This situation is going to evolve a lot. And i think on the one hand you have to just heartbroken. For the turkish people who are stuck between the whims and machinations of politicians and global economic flows that they have no control over when it comes to how much this new set of crypto and digital assets can actually help them escape from those pains. I've said numerous times. One of them remarkable things about this moment isn't that bitcoin and digital assets are going to save everyone from the follies of local currency regimes. That's just not realistic yet. What's remarkable is that for the first time ever the entire span of human history. There is a convenient easy permission. 'less ramp from those regimes for those people. Who have the technical know how to do it. The number of people who have that know how is an ever expanding group and that means that bitcoin and digital assets at an x factor to every single currency crisis. From here on

Hey i got this new market. I'm responsible for. I don't know this market and i need some help.

What what are the products and services are available and clients have a market overview at an evaluation of vendors. I said yeah. We have that one floor and let me send that right over to you so you got that report and then we had scheduled off and then that was fantastic. I now know exactly what i know. I know who the players are. Now i gotta pick one and Do you have an rfid template that would help me out. I said for that market as a matter of fact we do and so. That's actually part of the foresight offering which is a toolkit for a market as civic e. Template that has all the questions ready to go may not have exact things you do for your company relative to you know pricing pricing section. So we sent that to the client. Couple of days later calls me back on my cell phone says oh my god that was phenomenal. We had so much more information than any of my staff had. We now can get a bit out in probably a couple of days versus. We're looking at two or three months just to get the bed ready so yet to save a ton of time. I'm so happy with it and we want to get our hands on that service sooners. it's available though ceylan.

So it's kind of designed to be a little higher end add on or bundled complete with everything. So it's a higher end service but We spent a lot of time getting ready to launch this. So there's an awful lot of research content both for it audiences and business audiences get insights into markets and things. You need help with such as like i said like an rv or even a decision around costs resemble a cost calculator awesome. And i know that we've allowed some of our clients to do a test drive with erbakan foresight. What has been their reaction. Yeah we've had a couple of people where we said. Hey we got a new service and we've got some materials that are art of this research content. We'd like you to take a look at it. In case it was demand based one work client base was at. Hey i got this new market. I'm responsible for. I don't know this market and i need some help. So in this case it happened to be sales enablement and they'd never been responsible for that and they needed help figuring out. Why what do i need to do. What what are the products and services are available and clients have a market overview at an evaluation of vendors. I said yeah. We have that one floor and let me send that right over to you so you got that report and then we had scheduled off and then that was fantastic. I now know exactly what i know. I know who the players are. Now i gotta pick one and Do you have an rfid template that would help me out. I said for that market as a matter of fact we do and so. That's actually part of the foresight offering which is a toolkit for a market as civic e. Template that has all the questions ready to go may not have exact things you do for your company relative to you know pricing pricing section. So we sent that to the client. Couple of days later calls me back on my cell phone says oh my god that was phenomenal. We had so much more information than any of my staff had. We now can get a bit out in probably a couple of days versus. We're looking at two or three months just to get the bed ready so yet to save a ton of time. I'm so happy with it and we want to get our hands on that service sooners. it's available though ceylan. I don't think it gets any better than that and Pretty happy about the reaction to that the fact that they thought that the toolkit was again was our template was so good compared to what seems from other research firm.

Why Your Supply Chain and Cloud Arent As Secure As Youd Think

"Hi i'm jim lundy founder. And ceo on research and today's episode is focused on a topic. That many enterprise already know well. Enterprise security and cloud computing now in the kobe. Pandemic security risks of seemed to increase. We've previously discussed and some other podcast. How the rise of remote work presents a new era of vulnerability for enterprises and so does some of the evolving technology that is allowing hackers. Much more sophisticated. And we're going to dive into that today. So what does your organization need to to make sure it's protected. How can the right cloud technology to help your enterprise. Sometimes close some of those security gaps joining me to answer. Some of these questions is craig kennedy senior research director at research. Craig is one of the latest analysts. Join our team of trusted advisors before joining aragon craig was director of it. Infrastructure and operations have been dabo. He has also held roles at makara. Ariba inc n. P. t. c. Urine earned a bs in mechanical engineering. From the university of massachusetts at dartmouth brings his wealth of practical business experience in it. Knowledge to oregon. Crag it's great to have you with me today. Thank you jim. I'm excited diorite in. Let's start by taking a bird's eye view of what's happening right now. You re wrote a first cut. Analysis of the hacking of a company called solar winds. Can you tell me a little bit about what happened. At this event and why enterprises should care about it why was such a momentous event. Absolutely so in december of twenty twenty solo wins disclose that had had been hacked by an undisclosed foreign government entity resulting in at least eighteen thousand of their customers being exposed to malware in its orion softer product offering this cyberattack extremely sophisticated in is believed to be a russian hacker group and boasts likely state-sponsored they targeted and successfully breached solar winds corporate network eventually gained access to its build servers once. They're the hackers able to inject malicious code into the solar winds orion build process. Then this infected code code. Sunburst was in package and signed with valid solo in certificates giving all recipients of this package the false assurance that this was indeed a valid and safe component of their orion product. This was so devastating because the orion product which is designed to manage a wide range of it resources in an organization requires elevated privilege access virtually all the it infrastructure and enterprises. Both on premise. And in the cloud this new type of attack vector means that supply chains are more vulnerable than we'd ever thought before it will put additional pressure on software vendors and enterprises to use extreme diligence when testings after products and updates before promoting them to production. That's certainly a big time. Hack and you know. Obviously they're still reeling from this and we're still learning what reaches occurred. Craig what are some of the recommendations for enterprise when it comes to preventing clinks their. It supply chain so arrogant reminds that any organization procuring software should evaluate creating their software. Qa teams it will inspect thoroughly test inbound software offerings and upgrades in an isolated staging environment before being even thought of deploying production. We also advised that any service agreements be updated to include software cleanliness clauses so for software providers to perform extra due diligence to prevent this from ever happening again. Lastly and this one is a no brainer. An enforced multifactorial in your enterprise as for all users and servers one of the easiest things he can do help ensure your enterprises secure. Okay thanks craig. And that's really actionable advice. And also add that procuring endpoint and privacy protection platforms and another best practice and reviewed some of that and some of the emerging providers in our hot vendors in privacy and security. Research showed from twenty twenty in fact one of the things that has come out as part of that research is that sometimes the good guys of the bad guys that people that wanna borrow some information for advertising or actually taking a lot more stuff than we thought so. Check that research out. I want to shift gears a little bit and also talked to you. Craig a little bit about cloud and bring cloud in this conversation a little bit about all the different options that people have and how it ties into enterprise security in twenty twenty one. Many organizations are developing newer. It strategies sometimes from scratch or sometimes just to migrate services and obviously there naturally drawn to public cloud options. Some of their benefits include pay-as-you-go operating costs limitless elasticity much less up front capital costs reduced operational complexity and most importantly levels of security. That may be much higher that they can get immediately then they could maybe get themselves often due to maybe the new of this of the company itself a public cloud can provide highly efficient secure. It services for many organizations and it can also help reduce vulnerabilities.

It's michael close. Michael how are you today. I'm well thank you. Thank you very much for inviting me. What's your origin story. You have twenty four seconds. My home planet krypton was exploding and my father. Put me in a rocket and sent to cleveland. Ohio where i was raised by salmon marietta close and my dad was in industry. We moved around quite a bit ended up in fort wayne. Indiana which is in the northwest northeast. corner of the state of indiana there was a magic shop. they're owned by. Dick stoner who is still around in. An old friend bought my first tricks. They're probably when i was six years old and the bug bit and never really let go. I've yeah so it's about sixty two years now. I've been interested in magic people. Are i absolutely do There there were a couple of things there was a magic set called the sneaky. Pete magic set which i may gotten for my fifth birthday. I actually saw dick stone perform at my school. I think when i was five i still remember some of the tricks he did. He did hip hop rabbits. He did the ghost tube in that. Sneaky pete set and one of the things that was in there was the was it the trick of horace the old old creek where you sever the head of the horse with the and that was a little plastic version of that and then it's donors magic shop. I got the penny to dime with the little plastic block with the magnet inside that lives off his show coin and too little plastic. I don't know what you would call them. Columns that were attached to the bottom and a string went through and then you could slice through it and show that it was cut and then pull it back through again. Those were the first tricks that i own. And of course and of course aired nays. Because i want to seem like i was cool. Standard right verified bureau. Of course exactly right you know. Those were the those were the tricks. I'm going to use this podcast. A personal consultation. i'm sure there are many listens. They're in saint on forty. Nine between cup edgy. Since i was eleven. And i still haven't that stack an album and you're very well known for you. Men debt works helped me out two questions one. How should i choose which stack to learn and to what do you think in your experience. The best strategies. You've found the work best to actually memory. Well okay and we have a half an hour. I actually have done about of either forty-five minutes or an hour long targeted training video. That's on my website on this very subject. It's called demystifying the memorized deck. But i'll give you. I'll give you a very I'll give you a very short version. Which is your first step has to be to ask the question. How am i going to use this thing. Most people go memorize stack simply because everybody has memorizing stack. Now when i got interested in actually learning which was back in one thousand nine hundred ninety i had known of simon aaronson stack for quite a few years because he published it in the late seventies. I think and i knew exactly how i wanted to use the stack. I wanted to use it as an improvisational device to be able to sort of make up effects as i go i was influenced by that by burt. Allerton who had a trick in his book that used that and of course experiencing juan do his new monico sus improvised handling so i specifically knew how i wanted to use the stack and at the time the only stacks available really were one stack had not been published in english yet. I had simon stack. There was nicole. There was the ireland stack and i was good friends with simon by this point in time and so i learned that what now i learned to use the method he suggested which is a pneumonic method. One of course and people like what he aragon suggest every other way pneumonic and this is the third piece of advice. I would give you. Which is before you do anything you have to pay. Due diligence and due diligence in deck works and means buying at least choose me four books. Three or four books.

Coronavirus Surge Prompts California To Implement Strict Measures

"The situation in california is now so serious. Most of the state is under a stay at home order. Thirty three million people in a state of forty million or impacted by the strict dick strict measures taken since march and this is because hospitals are filling up very quickly with coronavirus patients. Nicole nixon with cap radio joins us this morning from sacramento nicole. Good morning morning so explain how this stay at home orders working because it sounds like it's it doesn't apply to everyone in the state right right so these new orders type. Two intensive care unit capacity. They'll go into effect when an area has less than fifteen percent of its. Icu beds available. And it's not just the bed sitter the issue here at staff to work those beds that are feeling tight too. So the southern california region and the central valley region went under these new. Stay at home orders yesterday when the available. Icu beds there. Dip below that fifteen percent and also given how things are going here. It's expected that the rest of the state will hit that. Icu trigger in the next week. Or two here on some counties are not even waiting. They're just saying we're going to preemptively. Implement this order but before we even have to. Yeah five counties in the bay area said that. They're not gonna wait for their used to get to that. Point here is san francisco health officer. Dr tomasz aragon explaining why unlike previous searches. Every hospital in california is under stress. There is no place to transfer people if we run out of beds. Three quarters of the states hospital beds are currently fool. These area counties actually implemented the very first day at home order back in march even before the state did so. This strategy is in line with how they've been handling the pandemic from the beginning when we all remember california taking some of the strictest approaches of anywhere in the country early on so does it just feel like we're going back in time to march now in california a little bit the these. These new orders are not as sweeping as the march. Stay at home order for example schools. That are already open can stay open on the other hand. Businesses like hair and nail salons movie theaters bars and wineries have to close again restaurants. Have to go take out or delivery. Only in churches have to conduct worship services outdoors retail. Stores can stay open this time but at a very limited capacity and these orders will be in effect for at least three weeks however business owners reacting will. Many business owners are angry. Small businesses have already been through so much this year and some see the ban on outdoor dining and things like that as arbitrary. I've been talking with small business owner rosy barra. She's a hairstylist. In temecula in southern california and she told me that she does not intend to comply with this new round of restrictions. I am not closing. I feel confident to properly and safely. Take care of my clients. None of my clients have rescheduled. None of them. Feel that coming to. My salon is going to be unsafe for them at this time. Barra says that for months. She's been following the health guidelines from the state the county and the state cosmetology board and she says that those things are working so resistant that i can make it hard for the state to enforce this. Yeah well the state doesn't have an easy way to enforce it without relying on local police in some local sheriff's have have been reluctant to shut down individual businesses and in saying they'll go education. I instead so in effect. The governor's counting on persuading people to stay home.

"And I think a lot of enterprises or even large comrades, they might feel overwhelmed was like so much solutions so much choice so if you need help or guidance on choosing the right technology for your team, check out our. Aragon recess closed for Web videoconferencing. When will really evaluate in nineteen major providers in the market is strange. What might be the best for you and or even better? You can also schedule a free consultation with us. Yeah! That's a great resource. You're not I think our glow can really help. People make a shortlist of the providers that you want to consider especially if you know I, think a lot of people realized with Kobe what some of the technologies they were using working fine and with the surgeon, remote work with employees and scattered everywhere customer interactions completely online. You may need to make a switch to meet new needs so I. Think the point. You made earlier about employee satisfaction. I just want to bring up that. You can't have that without ensuring that everybody really understands. Understands their job objectives so that they are fully equipped to achieve them. I think that's really important and this responsibility that definitely falls on managers, but it has to be supported with technology, so having one integrated place to work will help your employees achieve success in their first seven days there for thirty days, and beyond that and one of the technologies we recommend for. This is the digital work hub which is an emerging category that facilitates and manages the creation curation in communication business content from the individual to the ecosystem level, so you may already use a workup. Have One INC like Jesus. We digital work. And it really makes it easy for new voices to have everything. They need to do their jobs in one place. Exactly, so let's see. We have talked about team collaboration. We have talked about women video conferencing, and the point you just made was about easier to woke up to suck back a little bit about my budget on boarding experience I. Think is also really important that. In your new hire and especially employees have continuous training and learning. Because essential part of this process so when I first started the first week or two weeks. You spend lots of time. Training me on. My job and everyone that's very important for me, but at the same time you empower me to do a lot of self learning myself. So I could attend different virtual classes, I could watch video tutorials and interactive content. And I think this approach. Really suit me because I'm highly a visual learner person, so I learned fast out with visuals with videos, and all things interactive, and is very individualized, because it's catered to my needs and I was able to proceed at my own speed, too, so I. Think Trendy today is so much different from what it was ten years ago now you can learn just whenever and where an however you want it. Yeah I agree and I think people really like self directed learning. We're kind of in the new self directed era. People like find things directly from websites without interacting with the salesperson and the same thing goes with your team. You know people really like choosing the courses that makes the most sense for them and what they're trying to achieve and I would add that a quick tip for any HR or other business leaders. Leaders out there is that of all the training content or Max Video? Tutorials are really poised to have the biggest impact on training outcomes and your on boarding process. I always tried to use videos that you know especially included demos when possible because it just like you said it really gives you a better visual of something versus just reading a house who pediatric on sometimes the the video can really help accelerate understanding. Absolutely, I think interactive video content is the way to go, and let's not forget about all the emerging translates analogies. Learning HR has really trying to warrant the years, and now we even help have Jackdaw a learning assistant leverage a artificial intelligence, and on how people get their walk, then by for wedding ancestors, some common questions. And the bottom line is that H.? Our world is really undergoing a dramatic shift during this endemic where things really do change on day. Today's assists, but the one thing that we do know for certain is that everything really needs to be one hundred percent digital, and the question of how to improve learning and unplanned man remains relevant than ever before. You absolutely ride, and now as I'm looking by virtual on boarding process that I went through, it might have seen intimidating to me at first, but I think now three months to head. I know exactly what I needed to do to succeed in my job and I feel energized and very engaged opponent, the team, which celebrated one of our associated like two year anniversary and I think that was Super Fun, and I think I would like to thank you and our teammates for help me along the way and I think is also important to send the word out there all the businesses you should really start investing in people technologies if you want to keep your employees productive and engaged. Yeah well, thank you so much for that feedback naming you made it really easy. You were so down to try all of the virtual on boarding processes that we were pretty much testing out for the first time, and it's great that there's so many helpful technologies that just make it such an easier process and I think the kind of takeaway is that enterprises really need to assess how they manage fleeing engagement and learning, because it's really not a one and done thing needs. Needs to be something that employees have access to throughout their.

Airport Full - No Parking Please

"So the airlines had a whole new kind of problem these days, and and this is an interesting shots of it. Breaks. My heart to. But. David! What's this? This is the you called her attention to the story about this airport in Spain. No passengers but also no place to put airpl- new anymore airplanes. No! No parking sign went up some time some time ago at Terrell Airport in Aragon and eastern Spain. and for a while recently it topped the list of Spain's busiest airport and if you look at the photograph at the link. You should quickly discern what. It's turned into. A parking lot on par with. Mahabe in a couple of other places in the South West. Uses a aircraft storage. Yeah, yes, of course. Mojave is for airplanes that are that are extensively retired. These are just airplanes that are parked and. Waiting to go back into service, it kind of begs the question of where I don't know it makes me think. that. There are a lot more airplanes in the under normal times. There's a lot more airplanes in the sky than we ever realized and now that we now that we can't store them in flight. You know we've got to put them because you would think that there would be no got park someplace overnight, but apparently not they you know. They always had to park someplace overnight. As my point well, they always had to park someplace overnight, but they add gauge to do that at. And Hey be even overnight. There's still some of them in operation right right right. Oh and I see what you're saying. Chip that that even though things are down, they have to keep gates open. They can't use the gates as parking places right because they are. You know not as much, but they are using the gates. Okay, I'd forgotten about that. You're right all right so Yeah, we see this. We're seeing these kinds of images all over the place with the airliners. Active airline aircraft. Act I don't know how to put this exactly. What's the right term? But the point is are not retired aircraft there just. Aren't needed right now. Short term storage. Yeah, yeah, and how did you get? A work is getting longer and longer. It depends I mean. I saw somewhere where I don't know which carrier, maybe as just a general rule for for those types of airplanes but They had. mechanics early technicians periodically going out empowering things up, and and maybe even starting the engine cycling, the hydraulic system things like that, and just on a on a regular basis calling at flyable storage or something. That's certainly you know one way to do it another way to do. It would be to just seal the sucker up. Leave it there. Until, however, if Rao, our law and you have a laundry list of things to then go through. when you want to take it out of storage, well certainly gonNA. Have a laundry list one way or the other it. Depends you know, it depends on the airplane be. It depends on how it's stored. Right exactly and. It's in sorry I keep drifting away from the micro. Keep on. that. Bottle of water. So. It's an interesting question. I wonder if they already had procedures for such a thing or if they're trying to design to write these procedures I think quick answers, yes. They had procedures and they needed to write new ones. They they have checklists. They have all kinds of. Maintenance requirements. Powering the airplane up powering down whatever. But I think they also had to write some of that and again, depending on the aircraft and depending on the carrier. have to rewrite some of their procedures to consider this longer longer term flyable storage. Yeah the and the long term storage slightly So many years see yeah, they they've got a big long list of what they do. I mean they mask over all the air inlets? All the heat exchangers. Tape over the window put protection over the window so. transparencies don't suffer from sandblasting when the wind goes whipping through the airport and pick up debris. Pickle the engines of Put tight covers on the enlighten exhaust into the rice. Block up those heat exchangers. It it's. It's a substantial undertaking to mothball and airplane for a long period of time. Probably. Probably not anywhere near that because. They're subject to getting back into fleet as soon as the traffic supports it. And that's the reason they're. They're the. Shutdown of flying an international travel from Kobe nineteen is knock traffic in the dirt. I mean Air France has one hundred eighty airplanes. In storage out of lead to twenty four. Holy Crap that's only forty four airplanes that they're operating

Hello Jim thanks for being here today. Are No thanks. Thanks for having me and let's just drive right into the main topic remote work. Which I'm calling the new normal. I. In fact, some people about a third of the workforce are going to work from home indefinitely. A really what we call permanently. Now I've got a lot of experience with remote work. twelve years of career I spent working and managing remote teams with team members that were all over the globe. Show I'm very comfortable talking about this topic. It's easy for me to you. Know kind of fall into that remote work road. And again what we're GonNa, do today is dive deeper into the best. Practices for working remotely talk about some of the key technologies to consider adopting. And, also you know one of the most important pieces want to spend time on in the overall equation is learning and training which we're GonNa talk about a little bit later on. The first and foremost is important for us to evaluate the five elements of remote work. A physical place to work. A Computer and network access obviously. Knowing what to do at work, your work objectives having a work routine. And then having the ability interact with team members even though they're remote. So. Let's dive into this a little bit more. Now as far as the physical place to work having a spot at home or your apartment to get work done. Without interruptions is really one of the key things. And when people don't have that. It creates problems and create frustrations, so the place should be a place where you have minimal interruptions. There should be a door. You can close when you need to do it. A important call or meeting so that maybe either you know children and pets don't bug you. Know in my experience, I've had offices that were at my home location both one time in my basement in the east coast of the US. You have basements in.

"Today. We're talking about one of the most controversial figures in English. History person to and fall from power. Were extremely dramatic. She helped bring about England's split from the Catholic Church became the queen of England and had a daughter who would serve as one of the most famous monarchs of all time. Her opponents accused her of witchcraft. And slandered her name and historians continue to debate her real intentions. Let's talk about the mysterious and Berlin and Berlin was born around the year. Fifteen hundred in Norfolk England. Her father was a respected royal attendant and her mother was the daughter of a powerful duke and spent her teen years at the French court as a companion for Henry. The Eighth Sister Mary who was married to the French king by fifteen twenty two and was back in England. She wore glamorous French clothing and copy attention of many suitors. She even caught the eye of King Henry. The eighth himself and may have I come into contact with King Henry after acting as the lead in a court play in fifteen twenty six. At that time Henry was still married to his first wife. Catherine of Aragon though the pair had a daughter they had been unable to produce a male heir to the throne and Henry was getting desperate. The story goes that Henry tried to make an his mistress but she refused to sleep with him out of wedlock. That may have served to increase. Henry's infatuation yet. Divorce wasn't an option. As Henry was a devout Catholic. Henry attempted to get his first marriage annulled but the pope refused his please. An may have inspired the eventual solution. It was the era of the Protestant reformation and and gave Henry a copy of a book called obedience of a Christian man. The Books Protestant author argued that kings were actually the rightful head of the church. Not The pope. This book greatly influenced Henry who ignored the pope's wishes divorced Catherine in fifteen thirty one. An Berlin married King Henry. The eighth in January fifteen thirty three the next year Henry broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and established his own. The Church of England. This move caused conflict in the country for the subsequent two centuries after her marriage and helped gather and support a new royal court that bolstered. Henry's decision to found a new church. Not much is known about Ann's time as Queen but she may have helped transition monasteries into a new role as educational institutions. She and Henry had a daughter Elizabeth I but they struggled to have more children. Henry was starting to doubt the marriage. He waited so long for to make matters worse. The separation of church fueled foreign enemies and incited domestic opposition. In fifteen thirty six and was charged with adultery and plotting against the king. She was locked in the Tower of London. The king ignored olivennes protests. She was declared guilty in a bias trial and sentenced to death. She was executed by sword in. May of fifteen thirty six and was queen of England for about three years after Ann's death. Her opponents continued to slander.

Bridging Ethereum Wallets with Pedro Gomes

"Pedro could you do us a favor and give us an introduction on who you are where your minds at and how you ended up in the CRYPTO space today cope. Thanks for having me on the show guys. Of course so I. I started an e commerce as a developer building online shops in one of the things. That always really intrigued me. Was the payment systems like paypal striper like Mike Prussia's in terms of tech and then eventually moved into Fintech and I started working smart banking so I was always kind of leaning towards like personal. Finance user experience spoke after a few months working smart banking. You get a good grasp of the traditional finance regulations and everything and that's where I got really bored and tired of like developing features and not having to comply with regulators and features getting toned or cancelled. And that's where I got into tier when I saw smart contracts. I heard about this before but it was just a internet money but cerium really brought me into the building. A smart contract imprecations on chain. That's where I fought. This is where finance is really going to go. And it's going to move away from all the traditional finance and regulations and everything people will be really in charge of their personal finance. And that's the part that I was mostly involved was developing bang. Interfaces so wallets felt like the really next step and one of the companies that I worked I balanced and balanced was developing Interfaces for not only managing portfolios but also developing a wallets. But at the time there weren't many good solutions for building wallets We actually played around. With a semi custodial solution but then we really didn't want to dive into the the the idea of having to manage keys for the user. There was a lot of risk involved in that so we kind of just. We started brainstorming. About like how could we improve the user experience? The first APP was bounced manager where we developed Lake. Immanent away to just manage your tokens and indices very nicely so you could just like law again and have met a mosque never thing but a lot of the experience was kinda conditioned by the waltz like it was always around we can do as much as many. Moskowitz allow us and we really were man. We really wish we could just like control the wallet side. We should build a mobile. And then that's that's where the the direction kinda headed. The problem was a mobile wallets and our interface weren't really playing together because the beauty of the interface was having the full desktop screened manage. Your portfolio Tokens San Receive Exchange. But how could we then integrate with our mobile wallet which would store the private keys and we can actually provide a better experience for signing transactions messages. And that's where Walt can came in and well it connect. Kinda was inspired by. What's up? I remember once more of a desktop user so I had once web and you can just Kinda cure code and it just does this handshake between the device. And from that point. You literally just use your desktop. Yep that's volley go a little bit into you. Know more on the tactful while it connected. Let's let's sort of backpedal a bit more than just sort of diving more about who? You are So like that being said like you came into space. You had like you know your own like idealistic view on openness and Permission List like being able to build an innovate on top of these financial tools. That you really wanted to do so. You saw an opportunity in niche break into the space like that being said. So where did you find your earliest connections into the community before you started working on balance? And all that stuff. How did you sort of make that segue into traditional finance? Here's this thing. Daring of cool smart contracts liberty. Let me do my part to help here as I should be funny story actually so I I was. I was just doing my day job. The Smart Bang and I would spend most of my time just talking to my peers about look at this thing that the gym can do. Look at this thing that Jim could do and they would always joke about every day. I would have some fun. Facts about the tearoom some cool project that I've found and I would just like spend more and more time even during my job like looking to term style and one of the things that I did most was joining twitter and start tweeting about determine stuff and I. I remember applying like on a few jobs. I remember I played for Aragon and other jobs with at the time it had like no experience watching. It was definitely no go but On twitter through the M Richard Burton from balanced reach. That's how he space. I just got at the end and he was like you seem like a pretty solid developer and year actually know about to tear him so we should talk and then we just met up and he was in London at the time. That's where I was working for and then we went to an ATM. Meet up at the time which was so small like at the time. It looked great but that I think about it. There was like twenty people and it was awesome. It was like the first cross about how people were talking about tokens and creating different interfaces and everything and at that moment I was hooked. Not There I was just okay. I gotTA leave this traditional financing and that's when I joined balance around August two thousand seventeen so Early eat area Morella. I'm sorry go ahead after me major but just curious early term that Oliver I mean were you in early. Two thousand two thousand seventeen doesn't seem early compared to a lot of folks in the space. Well it all depends on where. You're looking at the charts. Basically I think asking is like were you early insurance financially which led to your further because expansion on your motives or was it just like pure curiosity well. I. I didn't even unencrypted time. I was really I was really just. I remember every time I told even on my regular job I would talk to my peers and there were like. Oh but bitcoin is going this and this and this and I'm like you're missing the point. I was completely baffled by how they were looking at. The prices and I was just like look at this tech and everything and I remember looking documentation and it was only around that year in December. Though is like wow. I'm kind of missing this whole run like I should buy some meat though is like really caught up by technology. I think I missed out a lot of the financial gain space. Its Own. It's important now. I'm like full on the and I own more cryptic than feed. Yeah it's that's a fun game to play. It is hard to manage. Sometimes it's fun so my question is You said you were traditional finance and a lot of features in at County Rail. A lot of plans that got thrown in the trash can things that you just couldn't do because of compliance or otherwise. So how old one of the things that you couldn't do that you can't and you're Bernie crypto well. There's a lot of clever ways that he can play around with like for example the same way we have compound than everything we had like these cold goals which were like these kind of buckets of money that he could put aside in everything. But there's only so much we could do so what we ended up just doing was just splitting into different accounts so the person could just like put money aside for a trip or put money aside for a lot of the wanted to buy so it was. Kinda like just containerized. Their money into different buckets. But we couldn't do much like there was so much we can do like. That could go into savings that there were so many financial instruments that we could build for their own financial empowerment that warm compliance because there were so many regulation issues with us putting some interesting to like those buckets for example and Yeah so it's Kinda like you. You wanted to be able to automate people's financial lives in a way that benefited but because the regulations probably let's just get down to the brass tacks. Everybody's gotTa make some money on the processes you couldn't do it. Yeah there there's a there's a very big barrier to new

Got Kids At School? Then You Need To Listen To This!

"Today I have the wonderful Nicholas. Who's just finished grade? Twelve twenty nine teen at Brisbane Grammar Nicholas Nicholas is a son of a very good friend of mine and a very talented young man who has a lot of wisdom to share. So we're going to interview Nicholas today in hopefully that Any any of you that have got kids going through school especially those this year that are going to finish grade twelve. We want you to play this to them. And here's some great insights from a young man has done remarkable remarkable things and we'll go into some Even more remarkable things Nicholas walk into the shot. Thank you for having me Yeah yeah this is really cool. I love to shed some of my wisdom now. Great great to have you so again. Keep a relaxed. It's easy it's all good. Kids have been interviewed. I I'd like to keep this all unscripted as you know there's nothing in front of us I'm just GonNa ask you some questions. Don't be nervous to speak from the heart and remember that it's all about trying to help people Better themselves especially. There's a lot of parents that listen to this and a lot of kids now going through obviously grade twelve and doesn't matter what they've gone through grade twelve it also helps anyone wanNA school So tell me you finished grade. Twelve twenty nineteen. How does it feel first thing that comes to mind? I kind of lost actually like I've done really well and and I can pretty much do what I WANNA do. But I've no idea like what path when I go down in life. I have no idea what I'm passionate about yet. I've just really vague idea. Yeah that I want to go into business but I don't know like whereabouts. It's very yeah and that's okay right and one of the things I tell my kids and my kids are eleven. Nine nine is you know You don't have to have all the answers you don't have to have all the answers and it's so refreshing to hear somebody just finished grade twelve. Say I don't know exactly exactly where I WANNA be. But you have an idea businesses. Obviously something you're passionate about and you interested about Tell me go back to school tummy. What's one of the most challenging things that you remember from school? I guess like the the hottest thing to me was learning how to study like when I went to the grandma I was like a straight say student. I'd no idea like what I I needed to do to get to like is and then I guess like a lot of hard work and a little trawling Aragon neither and that was the hardest thing for me coming from like a state school that was like a big lead and then the that's that's the biggest jump. Yeah now that's great and yet my son's very similar obviously not as old as sure when Ali went from a private school Holy Spirit and went to church in grade one And of course now in year twelve years later view he found exactly really something he went from being top of the class. The bottom of the class and And he had to work very hard and of course you've worked very hard because let's say that Nicolas is achieved amazing amazing Results at grammar in the top ten percent of this country which is obviously very proud for himself Obviously himself must importantly and then overseas family family as well and I think number one from Nicholas's If you do the work you get the results And it doesn't matter what you start it's where you finish. And he came into grandma being says Kennedy Grandma In the top two percent in the country run. That's exactly right like I was in the bottom twenty eight percent of my cohort and I guess like that really acted like as a dry to me. I really wanted to improve so I I studied like four hours a night for like four four years and then I like sort of gradual progression in Mike Reid's feed at how the system worked and then I ended up doing extremely well. And that's a I didn't inspiring so tell me what drove you to study those four hours because there's so many people in this world today that the results won't do the work and one thing I love about you Nicholas. You've done the work and that's inspirational and a great message for people is you. Don't get the results without the what. What drove you? What were you thinking when you said I have to do that with because this is a lot of people out there that are not prepared to study for hours? I guess like demanding that I was driven by was just really wanted their respective my peers. Like I was at the bottom like a felt like I was a nobody like when I was at primary school like I felt like us being noticed like aboriginals good but then I went to grammar and I'll just like the bottom and I guess like it eventually really got to me. I was like I can't do this anymore. I wanted to make something of myself. I'm here so I worked really hard. And then eventually started getting ceramic awards. And then Ozzie proud of myself awesome and and you know and and I think the key message out of that is very simply you had a vision yet vision of what you want it to be and what you want to achieve and you did the work and side enough. You need to do the work. Tell me what's a highlight view in your Schooling ruling is you know twelve years of school. It's now thirteen years. You didn't have to say this now. They do but You know e- what was the highlight fear. The highlight for me was really doing sport. Whoa like I found that? It was a great way to manage stress so I did. I did cross country and swimming. I did about twelve hours of training a week and that really stopped me from burning out and it like kept my mind's clear and stuff and I made a lot of friends through that as well so I found that to be really like good for me mentally. Yeah awesome awesome. Tell me how important friends at school my friend because I talk about it with the kids at the people in that circle that you keep telling me how did they firstly high important where they and how did you go about choosing the right people in your circle They really like the friends that I picked will like extremely smart and they were like a lot smarter than me and I guess that sort of setup that I wanted to be and I constantly try to improve to get to that level and then because of that I worked. I decided to work harder. And I got their advice and seek their advice and I'd say having a good group of friends extremely extremely important if you want to do well and Jim Collins says the famous Jim Collins says you the some of the first people you've got around you. Things are talked about in oversee the flash caused sees you are prodigy the people that you keep your Angie that company because it's all about mindset you have to have this positive mindset constantly to be the best that you can be and remember that whilst you can be in a competitive if situation Like Cherchi like grandma in skokie there in competitive situations all the time and that comes with a lot of stress comes with a lot of issues and the rest of it. The true focus should be on how they think about themselves and how they want to be the best semi. How did you deal with the pressure? of what comes with an elite school Manley just through sport. Lack is related endurance. Sports like swimming and cross country. 'cause like I found on that they really take your mind. The work like physical pain. Like if it about everything. And you'll really focused like breaking your pay bay and instantly takes your minded the stress of like trying to do well. I guess going to competitive school. A lot of people are trying to get up in the ranks and that that sort of like it can get you like mentally and I think doing sport is like the biggest cure for that and not losing it. People just like being humble and then not like like going crazy some great advice as the said Nicholas is a very was young man Nicholas Tummy message that you would give to people at You doing great twelve this year. What would what would be some of the learnings that you would say? Because I said Iowa said that wisdom comes with experience experiencing g can be was your a lot wise and the people going through grade twelve this year. What what messages would you give? The people that are starting told this year I'll say like work is in everything on like in twelve. I like completely shut out a lot of family and friends to do well and I regret doing a lot because like I got really lonely in a bit depressed like three twelve and that sort of sodomy so I guess if there's one thing to take away is definitely where cod but don't like shut other people out. Yeah great message there. Isn't it because you do need people around you and you still need to have. I always talk about Nicholas Professional personal and family and it doesn't matter whether it's Great Levin Grade Twelve whether it's university whether it's business whether it's everything and it's messages I've missed in the past and not learnt from I've let now but didn't didn't listen to in the past. was you still need that balance of personal professional no and family. So I'm going to finish our interview and you've been amazing and short listeners. Love this but I want you to think about one thing you want to achieve. Personally the one thing you want to achieve family and one thing. You don't shave in terms of business in your bitten. This year will obviously be something like university What is one thing that you wanna do and achieve so when we were sitting here in one year time what does twenty twenty look? What was the number one successful thing in terms the family suddenly and in terms of professionally which is work schooling? I think I need to look closer with with my family like I feel quite disconnected from the now just finishing it twelve like. I didn't even know how old my sister was turning. And she's like birthdays tomorrow. Thousands of weird and then so I guess like I would really want to spend more time with them on the stand the more

The total number of under-5 deaths worldwide has declined dramatically in the last 20 years

"In a week like most others when the news has been dominated by the grim and the frightening almost unnoticed has been a report showing that humankind is making huge strides in one particular area of development namely child mortality reports from the World Health Organization and the bill and Melinda gates foundation released this week have certain that in almost all countries of the world the number of children dying before the age of five has fallen over the past twenty years in the year two thousand the figure was nearly ten million child deaths by twenty seventeen that figure was almost. even as the world's total population continued to grow a story to celebrate but not apparently covered by most news organizations it's something to do with the way we produce and consume news an old bug bad for my colleague Michael blast and the date has been staring at this for years the trend unmistakable and amazing what sold is how many miss it one expert used to quiz people about big trends and compare their own sister the random guesses of chimpanzees the chimps one every time educated audiences with systematically wrong. you've gotta ask where we get our information well from the news which overlooks the trends in favor of certain events shapes perceptions with timing and disaster and so we miss one of the most colossal changes in human welfare. well now we know Michael last month but here on the world this week we like to try a little bit harder so let's drill down into these latest child mortality figures James Gallagher is the BBC's health correspondent econ say that having fewer children dying all around the world is anything other than a tremendously good story it is tremendous and incredible progress warmly how's it been done I have to be honest it's really quite boring stuff is what you would call the hash tag basics aids can people access to clean water good quality nutrition basic medicines things like antibiotics and vaccines that prevents infections will help children when they have them but also one really big thing is being improving the cat around the world for pregnant women and at that moment in childbirth because that first month of life it's the most dangerous point to be a life as a child that's when you'll most likely to die and so improving CAD that moment in time has also had this huge impact when you say improving can. eventing under fives from dying it's relatively simple stuff yeah absolutely I mean this is not correct really complicated tens of thousands of dollars innovative brown you health Calacanis of the C. rolled out on health services in your friend the United States is the stuff that medicine is known for decades it's really simple really easy today having medical staff that can be that when things go wrong during labor having drugs things like antibiotics if a child has an infection that early days having things like the new moon a call cold vaccine to be able to give to children said of that last night to get pneumonia which is one of the major killers of children say these are not complicated things but the challenges in some of the horrible will tune parts of the world the doing the basic things can be incredibly difficult and is that she figuring out the ways of getting everybody access to the things that we know what that's been the challenge and that means not just getting governments to be committed to doing that but also they have to be able to get the message out so it requires infrastructure in terms of roads and communications requires education in terms of nursing and medical stuff it's an across the board ever which has to be undertaken which is why you see in some countries the results are a bit more patchy in that which areas of countries fed better than the poorer less developed areas you're completely right if I was to suddenly become a multi billion Aragon just gonna pay for load of doctors I know you said that you can actually get them to the people that need them it's about building an environment and infrastructure that allows people to access these resources is not just about getting hold of them in the first place and that's where you often see these rich versus poor divides within countries this urban versus rural divide where if you live in a city you're gonna be physically much closer to a hospital than you are where is more than a hundred kilometers away from where you live down a dirt road. in amongst this good news story though there are as you explained great instead of patches it's a truism to say that the poorer parts of the world you live in the great the danger that there's going to be high rates of infant mortality yeah it takes the let me give you a couple think it's safe you to look at sub Sahara Africa and the proportion of children that died before the fifth birthday just just think about that fifth birthday in sub Sahara Africa one in thirteen children die before they turn five the further north Europe is one in two hundred I mean that is a dramatic Gulf despite the fact those improvements all around the world they're a particularly in Africa still policy Southeast Asia whether all high levels of infant mortality that coming down but then no way near as good as they theoretically could pay and yet this is undoubtedly a good news story why does it not get the sort of coverage that well other stories that okay by the headlines do well I think bits of it have been maybe we sometimes you don't always see the complete picture say we've reported many times the tremendous progress that has been made same tackling malaria malaria kills overwhelmingly young children so we seen little aspects of the story but I would say that apart from over soon very fine programs like this journalism can be very bad at looking at the big picture sometime with so focused on the here and now the latest break through war developmental crisis that actually sometimes we do just need to take a step back look at the big picture and that she sees something that's been staring us in the face the for two decades child mortality is basically halt it's a tremendous success story and how we talked about it no way near as much as we should have done James Gattaca that's it from the well this

I forget the name of it but the person was talking about how you really learn and you should really be able to process and digest the information in order to make it applicable so it's not like plowing through everything just to get it done. It's really absorbing it right. Yeah I can start I have like I had this random one suggested to me recently by my therapist but and she gave it to me women who run with the Wolves Nice heard of that myths and stories of the wild woman archetype and I wanna read from the back that just gives a really good idea of what the says within every woman their lives a powerful force filled with good instincts passionate creativity and angels knowing she the wild woman who represents the instinctual nature of women but she is an endangered species in this book. Thus doctor stays unfolds rich intercultural miss myths fairy tales and stories many from our family to help women reconnect with the fierce healthy visionary attributes of this instincts nature so basically like we. I've lost this like we are condition not to be wild woman to tap into her to be her to really express her so it's a a really nice digestible. I just read one story like every day and I didn't think I would story is to be completely honest. I'm like Oh myths and stories. He's you don't even then I'm like Oh. This reminds me of college. Were breeding of Odysseus. I don't really know but it's great it. Like Kinda puts you in that you know Dreamworld of Oh this. This is something I feel very deep. Deep inside of me and I'm really unable to express this and like why I love that I really I really liked being untamed women y'all and then for for work. I just dip into Brunei Brown's dare to lead every night for a few pages brave work tough conversations and whole hearts so it's really coming from a heart centered that took place when you lead and what's been really helpful as how those hard conversations and so much bad is through wilner ability so much of that is through a setting expectations so much of that is being honest. You know being honest. When maybe you don't know or when you fuck up up your team if you have a team respects you more and there is more interconnectedness and the full goal or the the overall goal so I really I love Bernie? She's she's the best so even if you're not managing a team if you're managing a family oh you know a lot of different social construct sandwich that same structure or prescription. She prescribed works I completely agree. I'm talk. I'm excited to see that I actually haven't read it. Yeah that's really good and then I always have my. I've mentioned this on the podcast before but my ask your guides by chicks chocolate coat coach. Shit now. I read this romance novel. I notice it looks like our own Ken. This is connected to your divine support it systems so she really gives you a set by subway. Then it gets deeper as you go along to connect your spirit guides to your writing dear guides to do you know different types of guides so it's really cool and you do a little experiments along the way in it fucking works the all who's the the author for that one. Sonia Coach Coquette C. H. O. Q. U. E. T. T. e. she also trust or vibes at this one's. Real Rogan love that she got to work one works spiritual or and then like a story time where he time one love that that's great correct so I actually plowed through all love Janine roths books this year I needed dig in. I have read anything so Janine Roth is she talks a lot about the emotional relationship chip and familial relationship that we have with food our relationship with food and I really love her approach. She's been really inspirational for me and a few other people people that were very close to yet simkin who's been on the podcast Janet Cabreja who's been on the podcast so I read all of her books. when food is Love Women Food in God when you're eating at the fridge pull a chair emotional eating or breaking free from emotional eating and there was just a bunch of them and there's actually one that was a workbook that I didn't. I didn't do but an end to be to be completely honest. I think if you just read woman food and God or when food is love. You'll be good you could you could explore the other ones about it because I feel like sometimes there is redundancy. You know when I read all of them. At the same time it was really beautiful to kind of explore the ways in which I could could see how my eating patterns within my life and with my childhood came to play with my relationship with my family with my mom and my dad and everything like that so so it's really informational. It's it's not like a diet broke. It doesn't really tell you how to eat when to eat or anything like that. It just helps you to really analyze and look at your relationship with with food and what food means for you and your life is food. Intimacy is food. Love is food. Freedom is food and escape. Whatever food is for you. It helps you really understand that and then works through that in a really beautiful way so interesting about that like is intimacy. Is it freedom as an escape. Yeah it's interesting. I know it's like so they describe each one and then deciders like a little quiz or not. West but CERNAN yeah. That's really just how I kind of thought it so in there is different ways and relationships that it is described but that's kind of the way that I gathered that information information yeah expand the ways that works cool but yeah it's really good and I would highly recommend for anyone that has binge eating. You know anything related. Did you any food issues where they would like to better understand why they do what they do as relates to food so that was really good. That's Janine Roth. I'm hopeful to have her the podcast and then I just I actually reading Graham handcocks new book America before INS about new discoveries discoveries as it relates to findings archaeological findings and historical findings that they've discovered in north and South America in the recent twenty years I and it kind of goes against the fact that we believe that we are the most advanced civilization civilization to exist today and it speaks to the fact that there were most likely more advanced civilizations than us that existed in the Americas in previous times and it talked about about a global cataclysm that ended the last ice age and how there was people living before us that were more advanced and had better technology than we do so it's really beautiful and it's just really interesting and and really thought provoking and I really love grandma handcock. I think he's an amazing person. I think he's so well-spoken and it's it's interesting seem to think about and talk about and with that. It's kind of like a fun oftentimes what I'm looking for in books as something to better understand myself but more you're so I'm always looking for information. That's interesting conversations. I want to be always thinking of new things. I want to always be bringing new information to the table. Whether it's a podcast with friends with my relationship it's really important that I remain dynamic in that way and I'm learning something new so great man Cox books are really good for that and Graham was also on the Joe Rogan podcast cast so you can hear that podcast episode and he talks a lot about it so if you want a teaser to the information from his book you can look look there and then I actually got recommended commended this book by a friend 'cause I'm looking for more information about the history of race relations in America and and how I can go deeper and that now I can learn more about that

"Televised political debate is a rarity in techy said there was considerable interest when the two men hoping to become Istanbul's next appeared together on Sunday night to argue who should win a festive election being declared void early this year with both candidates declaring they head victory stolen from them. Well, I login usually is a journalist based in estan will, and she joins us now. Welcome back to monocle twenty four. Tell us a background to this debate, please. So it as you said, it's it was incredibly a rare sight for Turks to see there hasn't been a political debate since two thousand and two when president Aragon I entered power his party became the biggest power here party here in Turkey. And so there was a lot of interest in it. It was a marathon debate on for about. Three hours and people gathered in streets and imparts, as well as their homes to watch it. So it really captivated people's attention. Now, this was between the ruling party favorite and the secular opposition candidate to men who believe that victory had been snapped from them in the last that Kim. That's correct. So the ruling party candidate alleges that votes were missing tributed to his rival during the election on March thirty first and the opposition candidate at grim Imola, who was the declared winner on March. Thirty first says that it was stolen from him. Several weeks later when the high election board nullified the outcome, based on the party's objections, but they both agreed to a rerun. They're both standing in this election. That's going to take place on June twenty third and pulse show, their neck and neck. So we don't know what's going to happen just yet at tell us a little bit about what it was actually, like watching an open debate on Turkish television. Very much an unusual sight. I mean it's not that there has been a televised political debate and so long. It's the fact that so much of the media is very much sympathetic to the government line reporters without borders. Estimates that nine out of ten television stations and newspapers are either owned by the stage or businesses that are close to government. And so just to see an exchange views when the relatively rare occurrence to see a ruling party politician challenged in front of the nation was something that Turks hadn't seen in a very long time. And I think that there was widespread appreciation for it on both sides. I wound up in a park out side, where they'd set up a giant screen to watch it with supporters of imam alone and. People I spoke to said, regardless of the party, this particular debate. We're just glad to see that politics is something that can be discussed that there can be this exchange of views, tell us a bit more about how the press reacted, too, because when you have a televised debate in normal circumstances arguably, what then happens is the price old pick apart. What happened who won who lost? Its Atra has not been able to happen into. Thirty. There's been a bit of that. But pretty quickly.

Billionaire Investor Ray Dalio urges capitalism reforms to fix wealth 'national emergency'

"One of the most successful investors of all time is somebody you probably have never heard of despite his net worth of eighteen billion dollars, Ray Delio avoids extensive interviews and has not allowed news cameras. Full access to his firm Bridgewater associates until now he predicted the two thousand eight financial crisis. Now, he sees a prolonged period of sluggish economic growth and the threat of a confrontation between the US and China, but there's a greater danger Delio wanted to warn us about. So we figured it would be a good investment of our time to do a deep dive on the principles of Ray Delio. When a billionaire invites you to his boat. You've got it go. Terrific data be out on the water, especially if he sends the choppers take you we flew just north of Nassau in the Bahamas to me Ray dally off air at lined up. Big enough. A Lucia is one hundred eighty foot long research ship and Ray dallies, pride and joy. Well, what a wonderful place to meet you. Thanks for having. Dallaglio love scuba diving bought it nine years ago. He wouldn't tell us for how much, but he had it decked out with scientific year including submarines that can dive a half mile fantastic. Great fantastic. There we go. Before we go deeper, we should tell you what's on his mind. Dallaglio who grew up middle class is alarm about the growing divide between the haves and have nuts. He points out that over the span of a decade. America's lowest paid workers had just a fourteen percent chance of rising to the middle class. What has happened to the American dream? I think the American dream is lost. I think for the most part. We don't even talk about. What is the American dream? And it's very different from when I was growing up. What's not working? It's not redistributing opportunity, we can call it a wealth gap. You can call it an income gap. And so I think that if I was the president of the United States or it has to come from the top. What I would do is recognize that this is a national emergency. It's bad. If you look at history, if you have a group of people who have very different economic conditions, and you. Have an economic downturn. You have conflict in the thirties. For example, you had four major countries that were democracies that chose not to be democracies because they wanted leadership to bring water to the conflict. I'm not saying we're going to go there. I'm saying that right now, it's a huge issue. It's unfair and at the same time it's unproductive and at the same time it's threatens to split us spends a lot of time thinking about where the markets and the world are going here at the financial powerhouse. He built Bridgewater associates is tucked in the woods of Connecticut at the confluence of two rivers popular for fishing. Fifty miles from the chaos of Wall Street. So you play com- com- this critical. You know, the motions will kill you at sixty nine Ray Dallaglio bears little resemblance to any Wall Street shark. He's more like a quirky professor Dallaglio has joined fellow billionaire, Bill Gates and others in their belief that the concentration of wealth in fewer and fewer hands is a threat to democracy, so should taxes on people. Like you the raised. Of course, you say, of course, of course, one way were another important thing is to take those tax dollars and make them productive. Very very recently. The idea's been that cutting taxes on people like you will promote productivity. Yeah. That doesn't make any sense to me at any sense at all. So it's gotta be through taxation. Yes, am I saying something that's controversial? It's just strangely here. It come from the mouth of a billionaire. I've lived the American dream. You know, his father was a jazz musician, his mom, a homemaker dally bought his first stock when he was twelve with money. He earned as a golf caddy today. Dallies firm manages one hundred sixty billion dollars. It has all the excitement of an insurance agency dallies analysts don't chase the gyrations of the market. Instead, they quietly study centuries of history looking for patterns in stocks politics, anything to help by winning investments Delio is especially bullish on China, which he predicts will be the greatest economy of the twenty first century and America's greatest rival last year. His global approach helped him earn a remarkable fifteen percent for his clients. While the Dow dropped six percent, we see the successful Ray. But you hit some bumps along the road on the way here. Yeah. Like in the eighties. You bottomed out. Oh, yeah. The Federal Reserve is less able to revive that. Then he was a Wall Street whiz. Kid absolutely certain a depression was on the horizon. The economy is now teetering on the brink of failure. He was wrong, very wrong. He missed the boom of the nineteen eighties. I read that you called yourself in Aragon jerk was an arrogant year. I had tomorrow ten thousand dollars from my dad take care of my family, your musician, dad had to cough up ten thousand dollars to keep you afloat. Yeah. And it was one of the best things. Really that have happened to me because it changed. My whole approach the decision making it gave me the humility that I needed to balance with my daddy because he took nude of his failures and other lessons over the next twenty five years and wrote principles pub. By Simon and Schuster, a division of CBS. Two million copies of the book have been sold worldwide. It's dallies recipe for creating what he calls an idea meritocracy. So what I mean is that I wanted to system in which the best ideas went out, and I would describe it as tough love, and I wanna get there through radical truthfulness. In other words, people say what they honestly mean and radical transparency allows people to see things for themselves. So get rid of the office. Extel young politicking there's a rule here that you can't talk behind anybody's back. You do that three times you're out of here. Everybody at Bridgewater is monitoring everybody else. Almost all the time. We saw it at this meeting where workers and managers gave each other grades in real time. What sort of grades? Do you get you could see like I get blasted a lot. There's a bit of a big brother vibe here that Cameron is an hours. It's their nearly every meeting is recorded and scrutinized. Can you understand somebody looking at it from the outside that sounds a little strange? No, I understand I even a little creepy. I totally understand how that could sound that way. You also have to understand that when you're doing this awhile. And you look at other organizations and people are not open with each other. And they're hearing a lot of spin that from this point of view that seems creepy you have a high turnover. I would say in the first eighteen months, it's about thirty. Maybe a little over thirty percent to thirty percent sounds like a lot some people describe it. As an intellectual navy seals. You know, you go certain percentage or not going. Make it. And that's the way it is think what you want. It's hard to argue with success Bridgewater has made money for its clients. Twenty five of the last twenty eight years. This is other worldly. Shipwreck? Whether it's investing or exploration Dallaglio goes his own way. A while your fellow billionaires base os Branson, Elon must they're all going into outer space. They're headed towards Mars and the moon you choose to go
