"So we haven't been able to do a coffee talk for a while and i have been leading a ton of events in virtual events and And so i haven't been on this page that much and we posted things but it's not the same as being with you live. Can you agree with that. I love seeing you guys live and seeing your comments and seeing what's going on in your life and and what's on my heart. This morning is after speaking at all these events or something. That's become really alive for me in my life. Which is the the act of listening to what people are facing. I mean you know. We just had the elections. And then we've had krahn virus like infiltrating our life and And everybody's afraid to touch each other anymore and live live ca live events in thanksgivings. And you know hopefully not christmases but like all these things that were used to connecting with each other. Just have been just really sucked vacuumed out of our life and so one of the things that i think is really important is to listen to each other instead of fighting each other all the time which were so used to doing what the elections going on right now. We need to actually stop and listen to each other and remember that your business is built on serving people. And when i've been having my ear to the the computer my ear to the surveys. I've surveyed four times last week alone. Four times and what i kept hearing over and over and over again is that people are really fighting with their emotions there. They think they're fighting with people. They think they're fighting with with Belief systems but really at the end the day to fighting with their emotions. And what i mean by this is when we're dealing with frustration and overwhelmed and and you know if we're to be really honest with ourselves we say things like i need more support or i need to sales team or i need more leads. I need to figure out what my offer is. Anita figure out how to. How the better spouse and we actually put all of our power out there on these things that we can't control the truth. Is that what we're really fighting with is our emotions. I have a friend of mine. Who's a couple people that i know clients and friends that are separating themselves pandemic breakup right now and that just hurts my heart. Because i mean. Let's not put an identity on a break-up because it creates a collective herd like mentality. I don't know the stats when you know somebody who's gotten a divorce. There's like the the The statistics go google's but the statistics are extraordinarily high that your relationship is going to be impacted in a way that you actually contemplate divorce or actually move into that direction as well or break up and so it's fascinating to me how the herd like mentality moves around so let me show this thing about emotions as i've been serving the number one thing that i'm hearing is that shannon if i could just get over my emotions like frustration and overwhelmed and anger and the things that really caused me to procrastinate or to get angry at people i love or to basically push my power way and put blame or responsibility on somebody else to make me happy. It really like people actually identified that. It's their emotions. That is the problem more so than anything else. And so listen to that. And when i listened to that what i did was actually launched a whole like seventy challenge on helping people build revenue in their business and overcoming their emotions. And i gave them really hard homework pieces every single day to have to go do so that their emotions would flesh up so that they can see it. And i don't know if i if i changed any lives or not but i definitely tried. I definitely went out therein and did my best to To really show them how to put revenue back in their pocket. And i was just sharing with somebody like this year over here taxed untaxed on my phone just sharing with somebody this morning When i spoke at an event actually live event. Believe it or not that. I spoke out Just a few days ago. And i showed everybody how to create a million dollars fascinating to me. Go back to. The emotion thing fascinates me the only people who really wanted more details for the people who are already wealthy. People who are not wealthy had this conversation. I'm sure now. I'm assuming that it was over their head and i just it brings me back to like just opening up your eyes to know what's really going on in the world and it's like if they knew if they knew that they could actually execute on that on that three step plan to make a million dollars. Why would they not rush to find out more details and the reason why emotions in emotions have us believe that. We still need to get ready to take action. We still are not ready right for that next big thing. I see this semi pro. I have a one percent club with my private clients. And and this may be the last year that i do with our clients and and they literally they literally when people many of them when they come to me they say i said what's the ultimate plan and they tell me what the ultimate plan is and the ultimate plan is someday and that's emotions emotions have us make about some and i always say a. Why don't we just make this now. And then you'll see how committed you are to it and how much you really want it. Because i think we love to live in someday. Someday i'll have the marriage that looks like that. Be careful that someday. I'll have the business someday. I'll have the money someday. I'll be able to get up and workout someday and the truth is that somebody can happen right now but the but the truth is you might not really want that thing. You might not really want that thing. Because i'll take into relationships. If you really wanted your relationship to work what would have to shift in you right now. What would have to shift in you right now. To be able to create peace and harmony. I would have to shift in new okay. So there's there's a those away there's always a way right. There's always a way. I mean i wouldn't recommend staying with somebody who's abusive but like i've met people who used to be abusive and they're no longer
Apple introduces iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max with 5G
"The legitimate benefits are as as carriage our brain five g to the streets and into homes. Let's jump back into the conversation already in progress. Let's talk about the impact of a five g. Iphone apple has the ability to spread pixie dust on any technology when they enter the arena with it. How important do you think five. G is to apple. And how important do you think. Apple is five g. It's great way to frame that question. Because i think it's five. G absolute needs apple to embrace this technology apple as you said has a way of turning nascent early. Technology things like payment like wireless charging into the must have feature of the year right. So everyone's anticipating. That apple is going to five g. That next big must have acknowledged. You never mind folks who think they have it already. They're they're apple is going to educate consumers on why they're gonna need this upgrade upgrade their phones as it's a huge deal And you know some statistics of said that if what's apple starts selling Automatically become the second largest iphone or five g vendor in the world behind. Wow way and keep in mind. Samsung has been doing this for about a year and a half. they've been selling five devices. The presence of apple getting to is so huge that almost automatically they become a major player in five. Jake do you think we have a problem out there. With the fact that five is arriving with a need for a new handset which isn't cheap and a need to ostensibly pay more for carriage widely by carrier a time when people are trending toward less expensive handsets. Like you just mentioned samsung. They have this new galaxy. S twenty f e fan edition. That is hundreds less than their previous flagship. New google devices have recently come out rather inexpensive. Lg you our favorite iphone. Right now i think is the iphone. Se if you read between the lines of seen at reviews and that is certainly not the flagship eleven pro. the markets tending toward more value priced. Phones is this an awkward time to ask folks to buy a new phone and pay more for service. That's certainly a difficult time to ask anyone. Spending one thousand dollars plus four new phone with that said there will be people who will spend that much money. Keep in mind. The phone is basically the most critical tool in your life. Right you this one thing. You basically can't let can't not let go of so either number of people that are willing to spend that much and we'll see what apple does in terms of pricing for last year with the the iphone eleven. They did actually bring the price down a little bit for the base model. There's rumors that it might go even lower this time so apple might serve. Take a cue from what's going on the world. An offer of a bit of a break but still have that five functionality.
Nutrition for gravel cycling with Kristen Arnold
"This week on podcast. We've got sports nutritionists and professional cyclists. Kristen arnold kirsten has a masters degree in science and human nutrition from ohio. State university is a usa level to cycling coach with source endurance. End racist professionally with the butcher box racing team. I've always got a million questions about nutrition and it certainly a topic. That's coming up in the new ridership for them. Kirsten helps us break down. What to think about eating the week before an event during an event and after an event i thought it'd be useful to think about it in that context just because a lot of us these big events. One hundred miler. That's a big unusual ride for us. We're not doing that every month in are cycling career. We're just kind of peaking for something. That is really extreme in terms of what our body is used to. So it's important to kind of think about that not only in your physical preparation but also nutrition and hydration. Christine does a great job of breaking down the things you should be thinking about before the event during the event to give yourself the best chance for success. She's got some fantastic takeaways for us. All and a few little tricks that i hadn't thought about so. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Let's jump right in kristen. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me craig. I'm excited to get into the topic of nutrition with you. But i always like to set the stage for the listener to get a little bit more of an understanding about your background. Since you've got a background both professionally. Nutritionist but also as a professional cyclist once you give us a little bit of both okay So i kind of make my living in three different ways right now and I went to school for nutrition. So i have an undergraduate degree and dietetic and then got my registered dietitian or credential Ended up getting my masters of science and human nutrition then became a certified specialist sports dietetic. So i was in school for eight years Nutrition and So open my private practice. Sports died headaches. Company in twenty fourteen and then started coaching Cycling in sixteen hour with source endurance. And i've been reading on the professional road circuit and twenty sixteen and now rethink for butcher. Box pro cycling. Wow that keeps you busy. Yeah we've had a couple episodes recently where we've touched on things that i would fall in the realm of nutrition and i was excited when we connected just to bring you on board and talk from the athlete's perspective about how my listeners might improve their overall nutrition nutrition and such because such a massive field and something that everybody needs to spend time thinking about and integrating into their lives. I thought we would just think about it from the perspective of an athlete. Who may be only doing a handful of events a year so not a professional cyclist by any means but someone who's peaking for an event that may be way out of the ordinary for them so think about like a two hundred mile gravel race an sp t gravel or amid south gravel event. So let's try to break down the conversation by starting. You know if you have one of those big peaks senior year. How should you be approaching it. Nutritionally in the week leading up. And then how should you be approaching your nutrition during the event. Okay all right so we're gonna talk about the week before and the day of a big event There is some research to show that what people call carb loading is effective. And what this means is that you are eating High proportion of your calories up to seven to ten grams per kilogram body weight of carbohydrates per day. and what's that doing. it is super saturating or glycogen stores so for endurance athletes especially cyclists with these long gravel event Even though a lot of the time you'll be below threshold the majority of the type of effort. You're going to be doing it. Relies on glycogen and so the main goal with Going into the event to make sure that those lijun thursday or as full as possible if not fuller than they normally are And then that also goes for hydration so ulta making sure that we have adequate hydration stores and meeting knows with fluid and electrolyte so short version of that is to Continuously e carbohydrate rich foods throughout the day for up to a week before the event and then also making sure to hydrate well with electrolytes every day consistently throughout the day.

Bootstrapping a Commodity SaaS
"You are. The co founders of gio khodyo which you're h one reads hassle-free geo coding straightforward and easy to use geo coding reverse geo coding and data matching for. Us and canadian addresses for folks. Who don't know you can enter an address or you can enter like a latitude. Longitude and it'll give you back the opposite one and i'm guessing that's probably how the service started way back in the day but at this point you have integrations to where you will correct misspellings and us. Canadian census data congressional districts state legislative district school districts timezones all. That kind of stuff. Is that something. That i'm imagining. That didn't come on day. One and you've built that out all out over the years. Yeah that's been added slowly. How we often describe it. Is that a computer doesn't understand and address. It only understands the coordinates or do you codes. And so what we do at a very basic level is converting an address into coordinate. So a computer can understand it and coordinates into an address so a human can understand it and then where our niche in the market is. There's a lot of data that is only unlocked by having the coordinates so as you mentioned time zones for example you can only get that data if you have the coordinates so you may be using coordinates to make a map online for example but you may not even care about maps and you may just want to know the time zone for particular location and that makes a lot of sense and you know a service like gio. Khodyo is is something. That my co-founder derek. And i when we were running drip we wanted to give people the ability to say like had an author who was going to go on a book tour and he was going to go to san francisco and la these various cities and he asked us. They're away i can go into drip and query you'll which email subscribers within sixty miles you know hundred mile radius of san francisco and of course we would have needed either their address or their. I mean you can turn an ip address into a quote unquote location. Not exact but it would probably good enough for this purpose and so we did actually look into two services like this. We never want a building that feature out. But that gives folks. If you're listening to this one particular use case of why you may want to use a geo. Coding service and so you guys launched it six and a half years ago in january of two thousand fourteen as a side project. Essentially on hacker. News is what i see. My sister producer. Found the original hacker news thread which was generally positive. Sometimes those things go really sideways. There was a comment or two. About how because you were saying. Hey geo cody is aimed at developers and it's less expensive way to do this and someone came in kind of little bit. No it all comment of like. Oh if you use. I don't remember what service was. It'll be this inexpensive blah blah blah and pretty quickly both chimed in with with factual data and references. Like no. actually. We are less expensive and we don't have restrictions on your data and you don't have to use their maps as you want and that it was a pretty elegant interaction. I'm curious did you guys come away from that launch feeling. Pretty good about the reception. Well there's definitely a love constructive feedback threat but also as you said a love positive comments and i think the biggest takeaway we had was wo- we aren't really the only people with this problem to be want to get solved. We didn't realize how big potential market would be. I think is really showed us that there are some potential year. Yeah i remember. We got hundreds of emails from people after that threat. It was what i remember that day. Just being absolutely wild. Like i think everybody does. When you put something on hacker news you send it to your friends and you're like hey up voters and then if he gets five votes and you get ten people visiting your product you feel pretty good about it and so seeing that kind of sit on the front page all day we it was just unbelievable and and then we got so much feedback from people about everything from things they wish we did two complaints about our competitors and how they were so glad to see something like this we even had. The emanate team from a major product. Reach out to us because they were unhappy with their coating. And of course you when we launched our product really. Wasn't that great context. It was really really terrible. Product will be launched it and it was barely something we could actually use ourselves like. We only use it as because we just couldn't have fallen feels really right but it was. It was really not a very good product like you wasn't that like the data wasn't very high quality high accuracy and things like that. We've come a long way since then just so cool to see that. Even despite if a crappy prototype there are still so much interest in this right. And i think as you said rob some of those commenters pointed out that with jakoda. Yes the the accuracy of the locations is important. But what really differentiates us from. Many other services is that people can use the data without restrictions. They're allowed to store it in their database. There aren't these overly cumbersome cashing limitations and requirements about using it with a particular brand of map public facing only and more expensive pricing. If it's private facing only all of these things and kind of developers are those really. That's that's annoying and nobody wants to deal with that and we don't want to deal with that and then perspective of of being the customers ourselves is something that we have carried with us
When Critters Bleed ... On Purpose!
"Okay now so why did you get interested in this whole reflex bleeding thing well. I just saw this report by that guy. Sebastian hofer and i called him up and he told me that not too long ago he got a job at an island ecosystem research institute in the and so i was looking into what's around. What kind of animals are just scanning through the literature just to see what of questions could answer any read about. These local snakes called thunder snakes. That sounds very dramatic. Thunder thunder thunder snakes. Really it's just that they come out when it rains a lot. And i remember reading this from nineteen fifty five describing this behavior this auto hemorrhaging behavior in these snakes. And i just thought to myself. That's insane so there weren't any photos or any kind of detailed description. It just said. The snakes bled from their heads when handled so he did what most good scientists would do. I assume he went out on an expedition to fight snakes. Absolutely you know it. He absolutely did. He had a couple of colleagues went out looking under rocks flipped a ton of rocks until they finally found one and the snake made some defensive behaviors kinda rolled into this tight ball and it started defecating. And asking you know emitting this pretty bad smelling liquid and then sebastian applied a little pressure to its nose like just gently pinched. Its nose to see if they could trigger any bleeding from handling all right. Now you set me this video. And i'm watching a. It's like a little nose pinch. Maybe you know you pinch at like good. And but then boom the snakes is fill up with blood like immediately there are just too big drops of blood where the is used to be and then suddenly the is kind of clear up and then a drop of blood comes out of its mouth yes. Sebastian told me it was wild. Just because i've never seen anything like that. And just the fact of how quickly that i or the is fully flood with blood and then the blood exudes from the mouth and then the ice fully clear up again in just a couple of seconds. I was stunned. I was like this is mad. I mean that is pretty dramatic and you said other critters. Do this to right right some other snakes. You know the one that's been studied. The most is the horned lizard. That's a lizard that lives in the us in the southern us and what it does is pretty nutso. It shoots blood out of its is and the blood can fly several feet several feet. Yeah it doesn't happen that often but when it does it's so dramatic that it really gets people's attention. Indigenous people have known about these lizards for a long time. European scientists wrote about them centuries ago and for forty years. These lizards have been studied by wage. Sherbrooke director emeritus of the southwestern research station of the american museum of natural history in arizona and he told me at the beginning. He was just wondering if this is supposed to be a defensive response. Why would blood be a turnoff. For what is after all a bloodthirsty predator. Good question when you try to say well. Maybe a predator wouldn't like it depends on is going to eat these things you know. That doesn't make sense so That's that's where i started. So he began watching the lizards in doing experiments. And what he found that. The horned lizard wouldn't always squirt blood from its eyes when threatened by an animal. And what i found was with roadrunners with grasshopper mice with Leopard lizards with rattlesnakes with other snakes. They never squirt blood. They don't do it then so when do they do it. Do they squirt blood. He told me it's when the lizard is about to be eaten by something like a coyote. Or a bob cat and the reason is the blood has a distasteful quality to mammalian predators and it has to be. It has to arrive in the mouth. Okay so these lizards are not really trying to like hit. A predator from several feet away by sending streams of blood. Flying out of there is apparently not disappointing. It's more like a coyotes mouth clamps down on the lizard the lizard squirts out foul tasting blood. Way told me that when he goes out and handles horned lizards only a couple times. Out of one hundred. Will it actually squirt blood from its. Is you know he said. Humans aren't typical predator. So he thinks lizard is just kind of confused. It doesn't really know what to do and he told me he's actually tasted the blood no for a long time. I thought it basically tastes like my blood. I wish i was surprised that this took a turn to a scientist tasting blood. But i'm not look. This is science magazine science. So then you know after a while. Though he started thinking actually there is this kind of you know aftertaste. Kind of acid aftertaste that lasted for maybe twenty minutes. Or so he said it was really minor. But if he squirts the blood into the mouth of a coyote or a bobcat they have a really strong reaction disgusting immediately. They begin to celebrate quite a bit. They shake their head to all kinds of things like that to to they. They have different taste. Buds than i do okay. Okay so all of this kind of suggests that for these horned lizards. This is really a strategic specific defense that it's not just a random stress response. I mean you could imagine that if an animal gets like it's blood pressure goes up lead might just shoot out of a leaky capillary. Somehow i guess but this seems to be pretty specific defense move aimed at particular predators right and like i mentioned before. The horned lizards auto hemorrhage has more studied than any other creatures. Okay salikh what beyond reptiles you said. Some insects do this to ladybugs. Yeah actually quite a lot of insects do this. And if you're poking at a lady bug and some liquid comes out it might just seem to you like it was urine or feces or something you know in ladybugs it comes out of the legs underneath so it's hard to see where it's coming out. It's yellow you know so unless you know what it is. You'd have no reason to think. This thing is just bled on me. You know spontaneously was happened. And now i'm looking back and i'm like oh that was blood cool so i talked to michael nop. He studies ladybugs at the czech university of life sciences and he told me that reflex bleeding is a highly effective way for ladybugs to deter predators because their blood is full of substances that smell and probably taste awful two birds or small mammals and he told me that actually if a lady but gets attacked by ants the coagulating blood can act like a kind of glue that glues aunts mouth parts together during the attack. I mean that's pretty amazing now. But here's the thing. I don't understand about this doesn't a lady bug need. It's blood i mean like it seems like critters would be at a disadvantage of some sort if they went around anytime they got threatened. So like how much blood are we talking about. So for ladybugs. He told me it can be a lot like up to fifteen or twenty percent of all. Its blood wild. Why i mean for you that would be like if you lost a liter of blood like a couple pint blood so it is significant. And that's why he's been looking into the consequences of this. I mean you know he said bleeding could save a lady life but there are also some costs and we re better searching for physiological costs in our research he just published one set of experiments he and his colleagues forced young lady bugs to reflex bleed repeatedly like every day and then they studied them and what they saw is that the bugs immune system seemed a little weekend but the number of eggs they produced was the same their reproductive success was almost unaffected. You know maybe just some slight delays in the age at first reproduction but nothing major. So what i'm taking from this. Is that these insects kind of know what they're doing like evolutionary speaking. I mean do they filter the blood in any way to try to preserve the good stuff and week only just like the nasty compounds in it. His is actually looked at this and he told me that the blood that spontaneously comes out of ladybugs is exactly the same as the blood inside. And when i asked him you know exactly like what is going on. You're like is there an opening in the leg. He said no. Like somehow the insect is able to kind of injure itself to somehow create an opening in its skin or cuticle. But it's not like all the mechanical details of reflects bleeding have been well studied. It's still pretty obscure all right now. Well thank you for this mini tour of the world of auto hemorrhage
Local Teen’s ‘Big Year’ Breaks Chicago's Cook County Birding Record
"At all. But I have to say one of my favorite things of the fall, and it's It's happened for 10 years or so now. Are they both up there? Well, the so is is when the sand hill cranes fly over and I can hear them and they sound like this count to me. Sounds like turkeys, but they fly high in the air, and I was out for a walk it Ryerson Woods over this weekend. And heard them and was able to see them. I just think it's one of the coolest things. Carl Giammetti is on phone line. He is with the board member of the Chicago Order, Ornithology logical society. There's a story behind that I was too long to tell. And also on a phone line is issue. O'Brien, who set the record for most birds, identified for this year in Cook County for a year, I should say And issue is 17 years old issue. Welcome to W G. N Thank you so much for having me. You bet. Okay, so I didn't know you know what I'm talking about? What? Sandhill cranes. I'm sure right? Yes, I do. And this is the time that they're flying overweight. They fly way up above us. And but you can hear them. They're incredibly loud. Yeah, There are some incredible birds and they will migrate in really huge flocks. They make a lot of noise, too. So I think they definitely stand out to a lot of people whether or not your burger. But anyway yeah. Some of the most incredible migrating birds that passed through this area without a question. Okay, So you have identified well as of the copy I read in the Tribune 282 Birds. Is that where we're standing still? Um, I've actually gained a few more sense than, um I'm hoping that maybe I'll be lucky enough to hit the 2 90 marks, but we'll see one of the most recent ones you've seen. I'm sorry, but I think that I've added a couple. Um, some nice winter finches have been a highlight about it. Evening. Gross speak as well as the white Wing Cross. Still, another one has been spotted Toey and I'm blanking on other 10. The other one. How could I forget? Um, a cast in Sparrow, which is actually Um, one of the very few records of the species in the steak s. Oh, without question one of the most notable birds on my year list for sure. Sandhill cranes sound like for everyone. I'm glad you're okay. And it's just one of those sounds When I hear it. I just look up and I'm always raking leaves or walking somewhere in the fall, So that's pretty cool. Carl Geum Eddie is on the phone line as well from the Ornithological society in his Carl. So my producer Jeff Garlin. All day was mispronouncing and I said, Don't do it again because I want people to do it on the air, and then I screwed it up. But so issues having a quote unquote big year explain what a big year is for me. So essentially what a big year is that Ah Burger will choose a geographic area can be something that small is just your yard or could be something is largest the entire world. But county and state levels are usually probably the most popular ones to do because they're more manageable. And basically from January 1st at you know, at 12:41 A.m. 2 December 31st 11 59 pm You try to see his many different species of bird as you can. The nice thing about this story that I read in the Tribune, um, written by Morgan Green is the cooperation that's involved with other burgers to help someone in their big year. Can you tell me about that? Absolutely. Yeah, it's who did an incredible job, and especially with the added complication of covert closing a lot of like front sights. Hey, really discovered a lot of areas but really tol have a successful big year requires a lot of people sharing information about what birds they're seeing, and that's why I like to kind of say It's obviously issues achievement. He is deserve all the credit. But it also says something about the health of Ah local birding community that they're able to support new, big your records and things like that. So it's really a great thing to see. So is to explain that so you're a home watching TV or having dinner with your family, your phone chirps and all of a sudden, well chirps. How's that for upon you've got to get in the car and chased down the bird. Yeah, that is pretty much how it goes, I think Right now. We're very lucky to live in a time where we have technology at our fingertips. And I think with it a lot of birds as well because people are able to get the word out so quickly. So as soon as I get a call from a friend or a text message from our local Rare bird alert group chat. I will be in the car soon as I possibly can. And how? What's the further you? Did? I read your live in Evanston. Yeah. Okay, So if you're going to Southern Cook County or even Northwestern Cook County that's quite a hook. What's the farthest you've gone to wreck your to identify a bird? I think this year. I mean, I think I've gone is pretty much as far as the boundaries of cook County could take me. Um I'd say probably an hour and hour and 15 minutes is about as far as I've gone you've identified you said about 288 birds so far. You'd like to get to 300 Carl, how many different bird species are in Cook County? Well, you know, it varies based on you know, kind of weather patterns and the type of your it is some years we got more vagrants, Other others we don't but generally believed the cook list is somewhere close to 400. I think a few short of 400 here. So, Yeah, I
Your TV is spying on you
"Want to take you back a little bit in the way back machine when there's a big fuss when physio was the top selling tv brand in the united states and they're still a big seller but they're not the top dog anymore and they got their wrist. Slapped for spying on what television you were watching without disclosing t you that. They were spying like they were and they reached a settlement where they didn't it's one of those idiotic things that the government does where the company didn't have to admit that it was doing anything wrong but said it wasn't going to do the stuff anymore without your permission. so there's a lot of value to ad agencies. Big companies to the tv manufacturers themselves and now with streaming television to people like amazon with their fire sticks and roku and all that To be able to track what you're doing and there's a technology called a cr that allows the tv itself or a third party plug in to know what you're watching and the funny thing is they know what you're watching whether you're streaming it watching it on a satellite watching it on cable watching it over the air however you're watching it can track your viewing patterns and then use that to target you with specific ads. It's very much like what you think about. When you're on wine on your phone or your laptop and you'll go to some store and look at an item and then you'll go to. Let's say a new site or entertainment. Satan sunday an ad pops up for whatever that item was in. So there's a lot of A lot of invasion of privacy involved with this stuff people on the tv business. Say no think how great this is because instead of you having ads for stuff you don't care about you'll only see ads for stuff you do care about and I don't know but here's a wild one. I saw on the wall street journal so since video lost that lawsuit the setting on a video. Tv is automatic. Opt out the you have to voluntarily choose to opt in to share your personal viewing habits. And i haven't seen how video words it because i don't have. I haven't had a video. Tv in recent years. So i don't know what you see on the screen but the wall street journal reports that of sixteen million people who bought video. Tv's since they lost the lawsuit Two and a half years ago. Ninety percent of people have voluntarily chosen to allow what they watch to be tracked. So maybe i'm just much more concerned about this privacy stuff than most people are or it could be that the wording makes it seem like this is just the greatest thing ever for you to let us see what you're watching and what you're up to so know that this is a very active part of the sale of televisions and Various streaming products is the ability to track. What you're doing. And i think that we should have the ability with any of these things. If we don't like being tracked to say leave me alone you do not have my permission to track. And it shouldn't be something that's just a private settlement with physio in the feds. It should be standard operating position. should be standard operating procedure. That you and i get to choose whether we get tracked.
Cyber is as Much Psychology as it is Technology
"I got convinced to join a stereo which is the company. I'm working for right now I've been with history for five. Monster is a brand brand new organization. It it's a different type of organization and from my experience. I concluded that this is executive type of organization. We needed to have so the very moment. I learned about historian about what it was all about. I was really adamant to join in and so so it is so. I'm not a managing director for europe middle east africa And a little. Bit for usc at a starring. But can you give us some insight. So what is your day today like. What would take up your time these days. Well my day to day. I'll have to divide my time in between Three things is to manage my wonderful team as any manager. we'd have to do another one. Is we have a community of members. Mum some would call that client who prefer to call members. These are very big organizations all over the world with which we have decided to have a very close trusted relationship and so a certain amount of my time is to engage with this community. Tried to understand what's going on. Try to understand the emerging problem trying to understand what's happening over the arisen as well as the most immediate problem so that's one big spirit of of my time. Another aspect of my time is history is also investing into cybersecurity and overall digital risks organizations. So i spent quite some time to king With emerging organizations indo digital risks cybersecurity field talking with venture capital talking with the leaders talking with regulators trying to understand what is happening what is relevant trying to create an ecosystem if you will of organizations in which we can invest and also trying to understand the need for today tomorrow and the next six months On on the typical customer side. You know strikes me that With your experience you have You have something that i think. A lot of people don't which is A real view of the global situation when it comes to cybersecurity. Your your experience has taken you around the world literally am. I'm curious what insights you can share about. That experience i mean are having been to different parts of the world. Seen the way that different cultures approach cybersecurity. Are there lessons that you've learned there. Are there important take homes you can share all. That's an extremely good point. You make what. I let me just share a little bit i. I'm very hopeful to sit on the board of advisor of elvis. You know the If unique and space defense organization have been sitting on this star community as they call it for for many years and the reason why invited me is because they said i understand cyber for an american company amid a european person i'm belgian guy from heritage and i leave thirty years while nearly thirty years in asia. I've got a very good understanding of what's happening on a worldwide basis when it comes to digital re cybersecurity so you quite spot on what. What i found out is the risk same. I mean i have worked with the If you will the equivalent of the sizzle of the chinese government. When i was working at microsoft and i found out that this gentleman is exactly the same problem as any other seasonal anywhere in the world in any other country or any other enterprises fish with exactly the same problem so the problem we faced with are the same the difference if you will resides in the sophistication. Some organization sub countries are way more sophisticated than others for some. We could speak about bits and bytes issues for others. We're talking about just to learn to walk and not certainly not to learn to run and the thing that is critical to me is the difference of culture also the organization level. I found out. And i have wounds all over my body to prove it because i thought it out the hard way i found out that you cannot take something that works in one culture and plug it into another culture and who backed it will work the same way. It's not true. Cyber inflammation security his as much psychology as it is technology as i usually say behind every cybersecurity incident. You have a human being either because you have an attacker attacking us for whatever reason either because we made a mistake a human mistake into way we tried to To to configure to deploy was security at the organization. And so it's very important to integrate the cultural aspect to make sure that a message is done is propagated the right way. Make sure that that people synchronize in endure is some crystallization iran. Some problems and delete works in. Us's not the way it works in career. That's not the way it works in germany and so on and so on so. My experience told me the problems i usually the same but away. You address them varies. And you've got to be very cognizant on on this cultural aspect to be able to the right wing.
Guild Esports Banned For Cheating
"Competitive integrity. It's a perfect segue. Okay This is from Collect points dot com and the headline here was riot. Disqualifies guilty sports from valerie. I strike you. Social media follows so everyone knows guilty. Sports they paid twenty million dollars to david beckham To have any sports team. And now they have a team that has been essentially banned from valerien first-strike which is the the tournament that riot is putting on and the reason is that in a previous match. They had exploited essentially a bug in the game. So there was a bug in the game that allowed guild to to have a view that was not normally sort of possible basically By exploiting a bug so they had better vision than their opponent as a consequence of exploiting this bug and and essentially they've been banned as a consequence and social backlash. the social media backlash was. Hey you know. It's it's unfortunate. But like they used. They exploited a bug. You left in your game right if you didn't want people to exploit it. You should have fixed the bug. That's kind of the counter argument. I'm curious where all three of you fall on this from a competitive integrity standpoint. Since we know lindsey so loose on competitive integrity this should not bother you at all right now exploring you the bug big deal. Leave them in. Is that how you feel is. Is anyone familiar. With the story of civilization kelly son who ran one of the essentially kelly sign was a gambling wizard who ran achieve at Reading diamond patterns on cards. In a way that i will literally never understand in casinos and her in phil ivey ran a one hundred million dollars scam around the world scam around the world because dealers would use her cards in this game that she was able to read and dealers accepted her cards. Use them when she was able to read them win a. I don't know how that could be any all except for the dealers to agree to use her car. Did not the house car Exact thing to me just as they any doesn't mean that they should get paid for it so you think even though it's a bug and the bug that because the publisher leaves it in the game. It's okay jeff. You agree with that. I think i grew that unless you know if this was a i guess i'm not familiar enough This above everyone knew about and it was in the rules of the need aac. Don't use this bug. I don't know how many new the bug existed but guild was the only one that exploited it view that as competitive ingenuity. I mean i'm a. I'm a jets fan unfortunately but you we always lament as the patriots. They seem to every you know. Every year they have. Bill comes up with some ingenious somewhat. Corrupt immoral micra jets and you will never hear patriots man call bill. Belichick's maneuvers corrupt. But but but it's the way they've been the rules within the rules of the game but it's sort of grey areas and yet. I don't think there's anything wrong with that process at grudgingly. You know as long as you're within the rules of the game so if something wasn't right now let wall prior. I think it's a bogus to come back and say after game. Hey you broke some. We didn't actually happen place. That's weird to me. I mean william are you. Is this like unanimous agreement. Here you think this is okay. You're you're muted william. He still goes. Okay is just one hundred. And twenty-fifth show your muted william. You're my friend. Go there we go. How about that is that this is the rare times. I got to pull out my team owner card canada's okay team start at. I actually have a pro team. That competes in valerie. Went in. I strike right now. We're actually ranked above guilty sports. Shout out. I think we're top. Five number five in the rankings. Right now but And invalid rights. I know about this three earliest first of all all of the time. There are soft bands enforced by teams and players for things that you could theoretically doing the game but the competitive said. You can't do the most classic example is skins right. Publishers wanted to all these crazy cool skins but actually some of them have competitive advantage right and so usually and most competitive e sports. There's a soft list of banned skins which are like. Hey we know you could pick these skins but like don't do it because they're not okay. They don't differentiate enough from the background on this map or saying like oh the publishers left in the game so it's their fault like there's just tons of things you're not allowed to do that are left in the game right now and everybody accepts that. So that's one two is. It's very clearly an exploit in a bug right like yes. It's a view that you can technically normally achieve. But it's very clearly an expert in a bug and four competitive broadcast matches. You don't typically take advantage of exploits in bugs. For exactly this reason you recognize there is a risk versus reward profile. Which is if you are taking advantage of a bug and you know the public or like riot has a very firm anti exploit policy. You're living on the razor's edge. And i think this very simply came down to g. Two is probably the strongest team in europe. right now they're ranked number one in almost all the rankings. I think guild really felt they needed an edge and decided to roll the dice on this. And guess what if you use an exploit and it is bad and people know about it and like you rolled the dice. There you are you. Should you should get the details. So i understand the frustration because it's a great story. It's a new team. They're doing really bell they built they beat an entrenched leader in g. Two and i think as much as has fans they're more and more being known as the bad guy out of europe right but like the reality is like you know. It's the same way you got a red card and soccer if you fall down and fake fake a trip right like yes sometimes you get away with it and in the tough games maybe s take a dive and hope the rap doesn't say but if he got called the red card and you lived with that and i think that's the situation here
Economics of Flight Training: Taking The Written Test First?
"So the big question. The one that kind of started all this this. This particular episode for us was while i get asked all the time or i see people all the time. Walking the only go. You know what i'm gonna. I'm gonna start flight training but i'm a couple months away i'm gonna take my ridden first and then i'm gonna come back and see you ever heard anybody with that guidance. I have and i've had a lot of people Suggest that to say go ahead and get the written out of the way or As as the faa calls it the knowledge test So we're gonna use those terms interchangeably the written or the knowledge tests. We're all talking about the same thing. And and ironically when we say the written there's really nothing written about it. It's all online That's that's a little bit old school but The faa has done has gone to great lengths to Make the written or the knowledge test more relevant in the the the scheme of flight training in and they're making strides. I don't think there where they wanna be with it As far as it it making a whole lot of sense. I know when back in the day. When i was learning to fly and taking these these knowledge tests For my first several ratings seventies. On all mine written tests and then i i learned how to pass the tests and then i started making nineties If i go back and i look at my experience. I don't think i ever made an eighty something on a written test anywhere higher low. Yeah yeah i was barely passing it. And then all of a sudden i figure out the tricks to pass the test and then i was making ninety five's and as an examiner I i've never really taken paid attention to The data but i think that's pretty. I think if i were to actually track the written test scores i think the majority that i would see are in the seventies or in the nineties You know you'd think Just statistically that about a third of your tests scores will be in the eighties. But i really don't think that's the way it it turns out so I think the the the idea of getting the written out of the way before you even start training is. It's a nice idea in that. Okay that's just something you don't have to worry about but the fact is that You just don't Me you you just memorize answers. Yeah and and You know there's a lot of the things on the knowledge test that make are gonna make a whole lot more sense if you've actually done it in the airplane princeton. If you're gonna let let's let's just use this example. Let's say you you've got a friend who has come from a foreign country and they have never will us golf. We'll use the sport of golf since you're an avid golfer. They have never played golf. And you want to teach them how to play golf. Well you're probably not gonna give him a book and say read this book and then in three weeks will go out and we'll we'll get a golf club and hit some balls probably pretty fast pre- pretty upfront in the process. You're going to go outside at least out in the backyard and show okay. This is a golf club. This is the way you hold it. This is the way you swing it. You're gonna let them get some hands on stuff so You know use that with the airplane. You want some hands on knowledge before you start attacking the the knowledge test. at least. that's my opinion. yeah. I'm a big believer in that. As well and i don't know under which context you this question. Obviously i get it when people are coming in here looking for a flight school there asking these questions. Normally they're saying. I was told that it'll save me a lotta money. If i do this. It'll save me a lot of money. That just doesn't make sense to me at all. I think you know i. I like the idea of saying. I could get that done but it really is memorization and there are no. There are no time requirements for the knowledge exam. I just have to take it before. I'm endorsed to take my practical exam. Which would be the check ride and mine. My normal advice to young people and adults and parents would bring their. There's sip in i say. Look when would you take a test that you're gonna be graded on and then have to speak to orally about your results. Would you take it before you ever did any flying or would you wait and do it like five to ten days before you had to take that practical exam if there really is no timeline on it. Why would i ever take it before. I finished all this training. You know right. I do my cross country planning probably a month into my flight training but i'm going to go take a written exam how to do cross country flight planning before i ever do any cross country flight planning right. It really is either memorization at that point. Or you're missing the opportunity to truly understand the material like
Building Products with Keith Pitt of Buildkite
"If you were to evaluate the landscape and let's say you. Let's say bill didn't exist today and you were to look at the available tooling out there and maybe find that there are some other self hosted kinds of things and would that have deterred you you know. Just kind of trying to rewind back if you had found something kind of filled that that need for you would you have gone and built something yourself or was that really the the critical kind of crux of the matter. That didn't exist yet and you wanted to. I think if i'd found what i was looking for the time i probably built it I just felt compelled for this thing to exist because my problem. The problem wasn't solved. If someone had sold to. Or any for me. I would have been great. I would have been very very happy and over the moon 'cause i'm way more about the problem being solved in solving the problem myself And so yeah. I think that if if the tool head existent of her would have used it already. But it didn't so i just felt like the need to build it so that's the story it it it was this. This need that you had and you were able to recognize that you're able to see clearly can of what you wanted to do. You saw the other competing or not even competing but can of the pieces of the puzzle. The different pieces of the puzzle One did one thing you liked another did another thing you liked but they didn't you know none of them did everything that you needed them to do. It wasn't necessarily. I'm going to put words in your mouth wasn't necessarily because it was a novel idea was because it was a mix of multiple ideas that had already been executed on just not together. Would that would that. Is that true. Yes that's right. I wasn't i took the best of both worlds sir Felicitous that may not know much about cic d- There are two different sort of flavors of cic d. The flesh flava is the self hosted option. And that's you run the tests yourself on sevens that you control and then you run the plane yourself as well And that's going to be done in in if you have a distributed team where the needs to access the tool from harm A lot of these tools aren't really that great of being run on open internet so a lot of sort of kept within. Vpn's or hidden inside offices that's the self hosted option. The other option is the hoisted cic de tolls Your circles you travis's and and those tools you handle that. Will you occurred to them and they manage the orchestration plane and the running tests yourself. The problem with that is twofold but the host options are two major problems. The first problem is you have to you. Have to handle a all of your employees if you want to do continuous deployment which i'm a big fan of Yet the beautifully keys to potty which for some organizations is inaugur the second problem is those tools ernie go so fast if you go to their pricing page. We'll see the slider that earning goes so far out of the rut and you can integrate lost without there. Being a big sign that says contact us to go foster And i didn't want any of those. I didn't accept the cons of the hosted option. It didn't accept the cons of the self hosted option. And so i was thinking to myself. Surely there is some middle ground And so i sort of set out to kind of cherry. Pick the best of both worlds sort of crepe credit mashup of what i thought would be the perfect tool and that's kind of how do was born and i wanted. I wanted to zero in on this idea. Because i think it's important to recognize especially for engineers who are kind of thinking. Oh i have this idea. And it doesn't exist but people can do it themselves if they go and you know mix x and y these two existing things out there A lot of these ideas that tend to be A kind of remixes of multiple other ideas together or you know taking one thing. The best of both worlds like you said. The new product is multiplicative in value. rather than additive. Right in other words somebody could probably go and run. You know two different things to get this same values but when you put them together. It changes the landscape. It's not the same thing is just running those two things back to back. It's changing Kind of the fundamental shape of that product in so it's important to recognize that because critic most critically i think a lot of people who are thinking about starting a business or they're you know they're they're thinking. Hey you know. I'm i'm might do the side thing. I might build a product on the side. I think a lot of them are thinking. Oh i have to come up with a truly new completely novel idea. or outs. Nobody's going to want it right. There can't be at shadow of this idea on the market. Otherwise you know it's it's already saturated every ideas already taken. And i have to come up with something totally new for to be successful and it couldn't be further from the truth. Yeah that's exactly right. There's no such really. there's no such thing as a new idea I think south park said it really. Well they have this episode of the simpsons already did it and there's a recurring joke where they have these themes or plots within the episode. But simpson's already done that particular plot. It's the same product as well. If you look at the big ones rubio burs taxis But they sort of took it and did a mash up and made it better airbnb. Her tells But they've taken it mashed up and made something new. See i city. I didn't invent the i. C d i didn't invent it at all. I just took the best of a bunch of really good ideas and put them together to create something new a new product. And i think that's kind of what a lotta the tools these days. I just improvements of existing ideas.
The road to 5G: The inevitable growth of infrastructure cost
"Been waiting for five g. The fifth generation of wireless technology for years and the promise of it is great. That will eventually be a hundred times faster than four. G and make technologies like driverless cars and augmented. Reality more sophisticated. But there's still a lot. The incoming biden administration and telecom companies will have to do before we have the five g. We've been promised doug break is director of broadband and spectrum policy at the information technology and innovation foundation. He says there are several different kinds of five g. And we're pretty far off from having the fastest kind from coast to coast. We're still sort of in early days of rolling out this technology and some of the most advanced flavors of five g that has a pretty narrow geographic reach while that's sort of the most advanced and gives you the greatest leap in performance it still relatively limited in where it's available. Those were broad five g that still being pushed out. We'll certainly be better. But it's not as as dramatic improvement as the millimeter wave that they call it the high frequency spectrum. What steps do you think biden and we'll take on infrastructure. I do think that there's a lot of hope a big opportunity for a bipartisan agreement on infrastructure package that includes significant amount of rural broadband funding. You know when you get out into rural areas and it just no longer becomes economical just because of the population density. You have to build up so much more infrastructure to cover a in even smaller population right. It's just you know. Classic market failure where given a tremendous benefits of this technology and all the spillover benefits to the economy and the and really are are sort of competitive industries certainly justified for the us. To be spending a significant amount money to subsidize deployment of both wired and wireless networks into rural areas. There's that needs to be built for five g. to really get off the ground in the us. How do you think the biden administration approach that. I would hope at least a few billion usually. There's a big time lag between the rnd and our rb processes that where you see. Universities kind of develop initial technologies and then that gets you develop and taken over by corporations that want to invest in this area so it makes sense now for us to be investing in the rnd so that we don't feel silly even bringing up the six gb right. We're still in the midst of five g but it's like we do need to be investing in. Rnd to be leading the way in developing the next generation of wireless well on that. know it. In your estimation how much does the federal government need to spend on infrastructure for this to work your if we're talking about rural broadband. There's quite a few numbers that are that are thrown around out there on the low in some of the estimates from the waning days of the obama administration said that it would take about forty billion dollars to get to ninety eight percent coverage with broadband that could easily be upgraded to To stick with the demands well into the future Hundred billion is out there. As as one of the key. Democratic proposals in in legislation has been drafted. And so i think we'd see somewhere between fifty one hundred billion set aside for for rural broadband. That i mean really could do a lot of good to move towards a future where we don't have nearly as bad a divide between rural and urban areas when it comes to connectivity which obviously living through the pandemic has has become critical tool these days. Doug break with the information technology and innovation foundation speaking of six g. Yes companies are already working on it and it's supposed to be even faster than five g. Well let's not get ahead of ourselves
Conflicting Views : Aviation Will Need 27,000 New Pilots in 2021 as Shortage Continues Despite Downturn
"Nick. You're the one that Included this in our news segment and so oversee user. You thought this was Very interesting because it just shows two sides of the same coin We're talking really about New pilot training so the fast article. was trying to Casey who wrote it. sauce ca For the picture came from could be flight fly. Global is the one that had the article. Okay so they article is Aviation will need twenty seven thousand new pilots in twenty twenty one. That's not far away. Twenty twenty one Any a couple of months. I'm this same. Despite the industry slump and massive layoffs global civil aviation industry will require twenty seven thousand pilots up over the All Record of a million in the coming decade The full cost comes from the canadian. Training and simulation provide a c. e. And i think most of us know that because that company because they built an provides does round the world and almost all of my simulator flying. That's why i say i hate hate. They don't have a new. They're saying This number of active policies declined Between eighty seven thousand By around eighty seven thousand to around three hundred thousand but we bump up to an estimated. Three hundred seventy four thousand by the end of twenty twenty one say. See a Now you've got. Let's say this company that make a whole bunch of simulators which Which of soon valley replied of various essential part of pilot. Training saying there's going to be huge domed. The other side of the coin came from The british airline pilots association and was video giving a warnings to People who are thinking of starting a career now and investing. The huge amounts of money required To to enroll in one of the approved courses So if we can play that jeff over here Prepare that to be played to okay. i can do that. Maybe i just had. That's just a picture that you see on the And the are the note Yes Is that's just pitcher. You'd have to get a youtube clip but it's a nice lady from british A cessation basically. You can find that on. Youtube will just go to the website. Basically saying that Anyone considering starting a career right now should do so. We great caution because Despite the this forecast and other forecasts by training providers the So many unemployed and very well qualified pilots out there still looking for jobs. The market is likely to be so depressed over the next few years that they're saying that we would recommend you hold off a making any big decisions about when to start your flying training. If you want to. And i have to say i would. A hundred percent agree before you start training. It's relatively easy having not yet made a a financial commitment to Go find yourself another job for a couple of years. Watch the market see what is actually happening with their lines whether their blossoming and whether things happening But once you've made a commitment and you throw all that money at it If you come out the other end and the market still depression. There's no job You've got the great problem of all your qualifications. Timing out before you can find someone to employees and what's more you may find yourself in a job that doesn't play particularly well and you've been a huge loan to service so i'm have a good strong think about it and this particular pair of articles really am fa- sizes the two different sides. You only listen to one side and he listened to all the predictions of lots of jobs. And you'll be fine and carry on an not to the other side from the professional pilots unions. That are out there advising you take care of it. You can't make a poor decision
GM to offer car insurance based on driving habits
"There's a change happening in automobile ownership. That is big time significant for your wallet. It started as so many other innovative things seemed to do. And the vehicle business. With tesla that has experimented with selling vehicle insurance along with your ownership or lease of a tesla and they only do it in a more limited fashion but something that maybe eventually they will roll out is a national thing. The reason tesla is so keen on this. Is that traditional auto. Insurers seem completely unprepared for an era where the vehicle will do the driving and and think about that. Thought you just sit there while the vehicle drives you to your destination so then if something happens in your in iraq. Whose fault is the car or is it you or is it. Some combination of which traditional auto insurers have fallen flat on their faces responding to the technological change in the market will general motors which is also installing. More and more vehicles with autonomous systems is now launching a car insurance business that they're planning to offer across the fifty states so they're only going to do it in a slow rollout 'til sometime in twenty one when they'll have the legal right to sell auto insurance in the whole country and they've not said when in twenty one it will be available but what they're doing at gm is you know forever. Even before tesla was cool. They've really pushed their onstar connected. Data service that's become steadily more sophisticated. So when you sign up if you choose to if you're a gm vehicle owner chevy Gmc truck buick. Whatever cadillac when you sign up you are giving them permission to figure out. Are you driving or is vehicle driving itself and if you're driving how are you driving. What speed are you going at. Are you doing jack. Rabbits stops and starts and stops. Are you doing rapid lane changes in other words. They're going to collect all the data on how you are operating your vehicle and whether you're operating it or the vehicles operating itself one of the penalty box things is if you don't have your tires properly inflated which increases the chances of you being in an accident when your tires or under inflated note to self if you don't have your tires properly inflated just generally not just about the premature wear and tear of your tires it can put you in danger. Get air in those tires. What i do is i have An air pump at home. That's a really good one that i can just Hook it up to the to the cigarette lighter. They're still is such a thing in the car and hook it up the tire and just watch the meter to see when he's got the right. Psi the right Number of pounds of air in the tire. And then i know that tire is right and safe but the idea of vehicle insurance changing like this is this is only the beginning where we will be judged based on who who's driving how we're driving and where we're driving and the traditional idea of auto insurance is not over but it's definitely at the beginning of the end in how we pay will be completely different potentially per mile of variety of ways that we will pay for vehicle insurance and if you are a gm vehicle owner and you have on star when this coverage is available. Look at it and see if it would be a money saver for you instead of being with a traditional vehicle insurer.

"And i suppose it depends on which side of the argument. You're on as to whether you think that's a good thing or not because you could certainly argue as our mutual friend. Jesse is incurred debt that we don't prosecute enough people and in that through that lens. The skilling decision has probably led to a quite a few fewer prosecutions than than what happened. Of course if you're a criminal defense lawyer or a ceo. You're gonna argue that we over prosecute and that anything we can do to cut down on prosecutors. Willy nilly bringing cases is a good thing but regardless it's just it's fascinating to me that the supreme court through its long tentacles exert such a profound effect all the way down to the ground level of what cases prosecute prosecutors will bring. I completely agree. And i heard the people who are defending the code of the obama administration of basically not prosecuting any executive as well as other financial crisis. They attribute this decision to one assistant. Attorney general who was the defended of out to anderson in the case of section of justice. As you know. But i'm not sure the listen. No advance initially was indicted for obstruction of justice because they destroyed documents like the fish the supreme court overrule the decision in a nine to zero case so it wasn't even any division and then the people that were involved felt that the cost of the indictment was gigantic. Because out to anderson these appear as an entity. Some people say the disappear because people do not want to be audited by to anderson because of the table record others blame the indictment and so for many lawyers. This was like an enormous injustice and they felt that was too dangerous to bring indictment to any firm let alone to any other firm especially because there are only four of being laughed so is complicated to to get rid of one of them to indict one of them with the risk of losing it. So as well as odd. This guys became to free to jail and they do anything they want without any any consequence and the once again. 'cause -ality is difficult but you have e. y. In the wire card scandal right. Because i think there is some there is some feeling among the final four that they they cannot be allowed to fail and that they are immune from prosecution and again that comes back to the point we made earlier that the supreme court what huge influence it has by finding Arthur andersen innocent after all. That's changed the tenor of corporate prosecutions in this country. In a major way so luigi what's your key takeaway from our conversation with ron my key takeaway is that the way supreme court justices are appointed today. And if you process in that the ewings they appointment tend to be single handily. Focus on on abortion. I don't want to miss. This is an important issue would be important to have a review of the economic views. The law is very important for the functioning of a capitalist economy. But they'll of law is very vague even from a distribution of point of view. This supreme court decision can have massive impacts. You have mentioned the cases of corporate for all. That's clearly important..

"And i think that the united states system in my view is better than other system. Because of this obsession in preserving the poofs many of the more important cases we found out about. Because there was no distraction the poof while sometimes of course companies trying to hide them the good lois. Try to uncover them. I fallen details. They dupont on the pollution of the ohio river with pf away and in the disclosure process a lot of documents came out that ways to mental. Not only winning the case but also informing the entire ward about the damage. I gave a seminar about a particular case daddy on that that i wrote in the netherlands in the netherlands. They are very sensitive topic. Why because there was a plant of dupont that polluted the netherlands in italy. Actually my home region in italy. There is a big problem of pollution of this due by dupont by another company but they discovered about the damage because of the legal trial to place in the united states in japan. They do in the so in. This is four one ks brought to light a problem. That is award problem. So i think the preservation of documents is in my view essential. I would have gone in the direction of convicted. The fishermen the preservation of documents and the preservation of fish. Fine vision that said i found that case both reassuring and not reassuring the reassuring part of it is that the court didn't break down against any kind of ideological lines but the reassuring part about that is that the court is always going to be unpredictable on these issues unless we do as you suggest and have a clearer sense of where people stand going going in than may be. Perhaps the court would be more more predictive. But i think it it seems to me that one of the key takeaways. From what raymond said is the courts essential unpredictability on many of these important issues. So you know that many. Us states the supreme court is elected is not a point. It's interesting my cousin. Just got elected to the supreme court of mississippi. So there you go. Oh i my actually ask because i. I'm writing a paper on this election and out campaign financing my a okay incentives my career decisions so i look forward to talk to your kasim and i think he had significantly less money than his challenger did and i think he still managed to win so maybe blowhole in your face no knows is not the total amount but most of the money has you know in. Those elections is donated by lawyers. Yes absolutely absolutely so the question is if you have a loaf of that donated a lot to you that argues a case in front of you. Are you more likely to vote in favor of that lawyer in a final decision. Luigi at statutory. All these things are just statutory. You're not info. Justices aren't people to they're not influenced by these sorts of things. Actually i thought that was the other fascinating part thing that roman said this idea that the supreme court exerts a profound influence over what cases prosecutors choose to bring because in the end prosecutors. Don't wanna end up arguing in front of the supreme court only to lose so by very dent of the scaling decision in the supreme court which limited the use of this so-called honest services statute. You've deterred prosecutions that otherwise might have taken place of similar similarly positioned business executives..

"I argued yates which involve the prosecution of a fisherman for catching undersize red grouper relation of the sarbanes oxley but into reform wayside and a case skilling pause on that how how. How does a fisherman possibly do. You have to explain. How does how does the fisherman. What does he have to do. Sarbanes-oxley sort of what the court asked. I'll tell you. I will say i was serving in the department of justice i was representing the the government the prosecutors in this case so it i did not choose to bring this prosecution but i was defending it and the basic issue is oxley passed a included a provision It was a destruction of evidence provisions and it said that if you destroy a record document or tangible object with the goal of impeding the enforcement of federal law. Something like that that you'd be liable for destruction of evidence. The fishermen in this case was stopped off the coast of florida and he had undersized red grouper. The officials told him okay. Well this violation but you can finish your fishing trip. Come back tomorrow. We'll meet you at the port and we'll see sees the fish and we'll sort all this out and when he got back to shore the next day The fishermen said you know. I think you miss measured the fish. Why don't you measure them again. And when they measured the fish the second time lo and behold the fish had gotten smaller and the reason was that the first mate had been ordered to throw the fish overboard. Destroy the fish. Destroy the evidence and they replaced the initial batch of fish with a new kettle of fish. And so the government decided to prosecute this case as a the destruction of a tangible object the fish and in violation of sarbanes oxley said the court had to decide whether a fish was a tangible object. I was on the losing side of this case in a in a five to four decision or four one four decision that came out against me and the court said even though officials tangible this is. Not what congressman. So it's a long story. But but i think that's an example and i think just to go back to luigi is questioned by corruption. There have been a couple of cases the the mcdonald case and then also recently the bridge gate case involving several officials in governor chris christie's administration new jersey where the court has has looked at some criminal prosecutions for for forms of political corruption. In said that that those prosecutions have stretched the bounds of criminal law. Too far the good news if you believe in anti corruption is that if you think that that in fact there's a lot of wrongdoing in the courtroom being too lenient. This is the kind of thing that congress can fix. Congress can write new laws to cover this type of conduct but supreme court i think is of the view that the the the federal government in particular is prosecuting. Too many of these types of cases saw you at the beginning made me reassure me by saying all that the the justices look a statue. And that's why they will cetera. But now you told us the story of the fishermen florida and it seems that his co. now the lawyer but first of all if he's an object and this guy concealed evidence. I think that your cy was absolutely right. And i don't understand why the justices went the other way this was completely ideological was not basin substance. Well it's interesting. Because you know i i saw. I'm glad you're persuaded by my argument. I wish i wish you'd been on the court but but it was a very interesting breakdown in the votes. I had never had a case that broke down like this..

"Com. And check out the top thirty right now. I want to start the show by saying something that we've been saying for months. which is there's still not a lot of clarity among NBA teams right now we know the Minnesota Timberwolves have the number one pick in the draft, Golden State Warriors Drafting Second, the Charlotte Hornets draft third that we know. But. All of those teams in the scouts and the sources that I've spoken with those teams, all have a similar message. This is a tough draft to identify a top elite prospect in the draft. There's no Zion Williamson in this draft. I think there's no they're releasing isn't a job mirant in this draft and so teams are going to have to be creative. You've probably read an and I believe in this case it's true that. Teams. Are Considering trading this pick if they can get the right offer, the problem is when everybody's trying to trade a pick, it's hard to really get a great for in return for that and so this big board is not connected to particular what particular teams are going to do that's what a mock drafts for. We'll get to a mock draft later. But this is just in general where team see it, and again the rankings are fluid in that. There's no concensus for any of these guys, and so I'll try to talk about a draft range a little bit as well as I walk through each of these players to talk about at least where I saw the highs and lows based off away.

Then also to federal, hold a no fresh news report an expert, export front and Saints along liquidate shop that as well. You were talking a little bit ago about how we still have some long term strength in the soybean market. Well, we've taken a thirty cent whack at it today. What do you think that long-term strengths going to be and when we're GONNA see a rebound here. I think long-term strength is still testing the eleven dollar mark carry out his too tight. I still think there's a lot of insert area yet you know with weather here. For next planning already the dryness and also to south, America can be a game changer with their grains coming in the next five days or so but the short term.

On the telephone line right now, my favorite agronomist of all time is joining us from Iowa State University Megan Anderson's on the telephone line fresh off a celebrating her twenty first birthday again Megan. How are you doing? I'm doing well, how are you? Well. We're. We're doing fine now word central. Iowa and you're are agronomist and in central Iowa, but you're going to talk for the whole state. Today a little bit as well. Anything problematic pop up I. mean we are just dry as a bone in some sections of of what are you seeing out there Yeah we we are really really dry and it is really windy. So you know that immediately sends off kind of warning bells in my mind thinking about the potential for you know some equipment fires that potentially you're gonNA lead into field fires and and some really dangerous situations and I know we've had a few of those across the state. grain is drying down really pretty quickly you know I. I. was in a field yesterday with my dad and he was harvesting thirteen percent corn. which is pretty dry so So there's a lot of things that we need to be thinking about with regard to that. But safety is number one in my mind. Yeah, I'm with you on that. Now, we've seen some of this duration infected corn come out probably the northern reaches of your district. Are you seeing inequality problems or this dry weather pretty much taken care of that Yeah I mean the dry weather has really pulled out most of the quality issues that we were concerned about. But I I will say that you know I've seen some grain that's been cracking even as a result of You know maybe some green handling practices but probably from just being so dang dry as well. So that's probably the biggest. Quality issue that I've seen I know that test weights are pretty they can be pretty variable So in some of this, this Rachel affected corn in particular I do expect that people are pulling out some lower test weight stuff, but I don't think it's it's as low as we were concerned that it could be certainly. Yeah, Hey megabits, India are you hearing of some issues with combines? I've heard some horror stories with the debris and fields and and also with some transmission trouble due to just the the force that it takes to try and collect some of this stuff. Yeah absolutely I think you guys actually shared some of that with me with regard to the transmissions and run into debris is the latest now being snapped up out of Dealerships at least here in central Iowa, and I expect elsewhere that that some of these equipment guys are are selling out of a lot of corners now. But hopefully you know were able to to be kind of safe I suppose one one other quality issue from busies is picking up a lot of soil in that grain especially as we get drier and we're popping more of those balls out of the ground while we're trying to cut. So I think people probably ought to be keep an eye out for that as well. But hopefully, we can manage getting. You know safety issues and equipment problems. Looking ahead to next year then Meghan, and what are you seeing in terms of some of these factors for management like fungicide applications and that sort of thing. Well. I, don't expect that the the fundamental. Concern his going to be all that different than it would be in a normal you. But I've got a big neon sign that's flashing bone to your corn right in front of me. And in case you. So there's definitely going to be manageable considerations and and probably a lot more people moving towards soybeans. then they would prefer to. Damage. Fields. Yeah I'll follow up with that a little bit I. Mean I've seen some of this corn that's been diff- disked under and it looks like that corn could be used as a cover crop because it's starting sprout, which is good because it might freeze out but you're dropping in some cases one, hundred, eighty bushels a seed on an Acre ground out there. I'd say we're going to have some volunteer corn issues coming up next spring Yeah absolutely I. think that E-.

A volunteer Korn this fall I I think we're still going to have just astronomical numbers. next spring that we're going to be dealing with, and hopefully you know if we delay planting a little bit, you know nobody likes to hear that. But if you want to go back to corn, there are some considerations that we might be able to make it happen but it's GonNa be a challenging. We're going to need to be thinking about that chemical program for sure to try and manage that. Yeah. What about bug pressure have much insect problem we can remember. Well, we definitely had. Issues a lot of the state this year, and of course, those are going to be back next year because we you know they over winter here in Iowa so. Definitely Western porn worms or big concern because of the resistance, and then there are pockets of those northerns across the state that are are going to Be. Resistant to rotation basically so they would not. Have any effect on soybeans next year but you know when you go back to corn in two years there's potential but we will have northern populations that are still going to be there. So so those are the definitely big ones in my mind certainly, soybean gall Midge was present in western Iowa and moving closer towards central Iowa seems like and and with all those wings, we don't know how they. All. So that's that's something that will be keeping an eye on next year as well. We don't know much for management anyway. With that. Those. Are Tough. They get inside that soybean and you can't. You can't get them with anything. So Hey, Megan, thanks for talking to us a little bit. Maybe we'll see this week. We're back in your district here with clean a clean water Wednesday coming up. So you're invited to come along. All right thanks. Megan, Anderson with us we talk in Lots of things going on Iowa's corn and soybean fields. We're GONNA talk, markets, coming up. On the big show.

"Big Show continues here on a partly cloudy. Tuesday morning as we approach lunchtime in Dany Peterson, in the big show today Bob, Quinn is in the big show garage as they are doing some mounting of some tires on big Bud Mir clearing Iowa, and you can follow along. You can see this for yourself. These the largest egg tires in the world. The S. WS from Titan. Going on in the largest tractors. In the world, also you can follow along at Big Show Farm Nathan Fisher's. He'll take a look at market ten whether information and We're GONNA. Talk some markets here. Little market in analyze ation segment don rose is our expert. US commodities in West des Moines forty one years of analyzing markets working in the business. Hey, Don what's going on today. Hey Good morning. Andy you're making me sound old. Experience in that how that goes. Better Yeah. Hey I figured you'd be taken credit here, so it'd be nice little bounce back after that down day yesterday. And I think you know the bottom line I. Think when you look at this market. Is You know we come out of that crap? Report on Friday? There wasn't anything really bullish out of it, and we found out again that the dominant issue was the weather, and the weather maps continue to get. More favorable as we go forward and continue to These dry areas you know in fact, it looks like this rain's coming. Ask now is GONNA hit. You know some of these dry areas northern Missouri, southern and Central Iowa, southern Illinois and into the southeast, and leave really only Ohio as the epicenter of the dryness, so I think that is about it. We're marching to crop where we got about fifty percent of the crop pollinating so this change in weather pattern is near perfect timing, so that's the good news and but our crop last week. Andy did go down a bit, but I think it just tells us that we have a big enough supply coming at US Well, yeah, the market was expecting. What a couple of percent drop and they got it from seventy one to sixty nine percent good to excellent on corn soybean. Stay the same, but that's a that's a big number. Good excellent done. Well it is, and you know the other side of it most of that drop actually I mean it was from the heat, but seasonally this time of year when you hit usually past the fourth of July. Just as we're maturing and changing we usually have a seasonal drop in good to excellent ratings. Anyway, so some of it was the heat last week some below normal seasonal drop, and so now what's going to happen is we've got an acres decided. We've got going forward with the pollination and this and that the next week next six weeks. We're going to spend time debating. What do you think the yield is And then we're going? Going to you know won't be that much longer. We're going to start to watch South America crop production You know going forward, so I think that's really as you step this thing up in meantime Brazil's about thirty five percent harvested on their corn. They're selling corn in the world market. That's a problem. Argentina's basically done with our harvest. They're selling corn in the world, market and Ukraine looks like they have a record crop in about the same time. As we're solid corn on the world market on harvest, they will too so no shortage competition and It's about the same we did not have. Demand led rally. It was a sinking supply, but the supply. Did Not could not shrink enough to make a difference. So is that kind of the long way then Donald saying that the seasonal highs probably in here. Well unless we can fire this thing up fast or in with weather, or unless we get some very unusual demand, you have to say that our seasonality remain negative here and that that you're probably right on on those thoughts. As far as the top. You know even this morning. On the demand news. We had a Chit sailed this to China Andy sixty six million bushels, the largest one day sale to anybody since nineteen ninety-one and the market. Just look at it goes up three cents, and says not enough. weather was the Dow is the dominant issue and we've got weather coming at US improving some of these dry areas. So, that's good news. Though China continues to buy, I guess. Well, it is and I. That's the the bull underneath the market is. Does China just by They're look at it this way their phase one deal. They're slow on. They need to really step it up to meet their commitment that they have out here and then we've got the administration saying that they're not even talking about a face to hear yet, which leads some people to believe? Are GonNa? Meet the. The phase one agreement as a lot a lot of tensions. You know now on the South China Sea. you know, of course we're still on the terrace, but just a lot of tensions here between the US and China as we go forward so when you're in a market trying to find demand that unrattled things we do have one positive Andy and that's the wheat market, the wheat market Russia's in the dry drought real dry drought over there and their crop disappointing yields on their their winter harvest their spring wheat harvest. looks like that could be a little short to remember the largest world wheat exporter, and so consequently wheat does have a bid under it on breaks, and so at least we got one commodity trying to fight for life. And I was GONNA, ask you to about The the livestock side of thing as especially the live cattle, today and and the hogs are seeing a little bit of a down data feeders kind of hanging in there though. Well the cattle market you know down a buck basically in October, the real problem with the cattles. We still had big numbers. We still have big weights on top of us. Futures Market that we're trying to work over from that Cole that we had the futures coming into today were twelve dollars one hundred weight higher than they normally are on a basis. We had a big premium dial Dan and then you've got concerned with the Cova coming back again. You saw that California and who knows what's after? After is starting to close down some of these things again as far as our demand and then school lunch, buying is usually a big kicker on meet demand, government buying meat, and what's that GonNa be so I think we're back talking about We know we got a big supply. Short term from the backup shrinks as we get into twenty one but What happens with her demand here short term, and that's a little bit on the shaky side here again when you look at the Kobe ramping up. And I've got an interesting story here. In three big things coming up about the the consumer being worried about supplies, so we may have to talk about that in an hour and ten minutes, and we get back together in the meantime Don how do we Continue the conversation directly. Yeah you bet can read just at one, eight, hundred, two, four, seven, four, zero, seven one. Goes Don rose US commodities in western boy, and he is our market expert here today on the big show eleven forty two, and by the way those specific numbers here coming up momentarily Nathan Fisher, we'll take a look. At where we are right now at eleven forty two on the big show clock, you are I was soybean. Farmer brings you the three things you need to know. Optimistic consumption on talking about bear the big sales China and it's GonNa take a lot of those in order to meet USDA's projection for soybean exports, two point three billion bushels per the projection.

"And now if we get into couple of these guys that this is the big Lou big board. We probably should. Yeah. A will. We're gonna hit just a couple prospects fewer than we usually do a we'll get more into this position. A maybe later in the offseason if anything happens in in the regard of the position, and we'll see if the giants do need someone. So you have three guys that you listed here. And because two of them were going to be together. Let's let's start with the third in that is herb Smith at of Alabama yet Smith's one of those guys. He's almost like a classic Alabama prospect where you don't really. Here too much about him because he's been buried on the depth chart by other NFL players for two or three years. And then all of a sudden he rotates to the top of the depth chart and then has a great season. He's a little bit smaller or I should say a little bit shorter than like. Oh, Jay Howard. He's only about six three or so, but he's got a solid frame to forty to forty five something like that. Coming out of Alabama. He can block obviously the Ican block in the run game. He can block and pass protection. But this year he's shown he can be a receiver. He can run routes. He can catch the ball, and he can actually hurt a defense in the passing game. Which was something. He hadn't really shown as a sophomore yet. And he got a chance to be a part of that offense. He us. He was used a little less frequently than OJ Howard was his final year. But he was tied for third on the team in targets now with fifty four he was fourth on the team in receptions, eight touchdowns. So he was he was using the red zone. He ad rate. Explosiveness when he was a big play type of threat yet seventeen point four yards per reception, which is incredible for a tight end. Like, we've we've mentioned for some of these other positions that the athletic testing is going to be big. And I think that's definitely a case for a tight end, especially when we get like composite scores. Like spark which is something that takes a most of the combine numbers kind of puts them into one big formula and brings it out as like a percentile among NFL players at that position. That's been huge for tight ends at an Ingram was like a spark star. A so was OJ Howard, George kiddle in that group of tight ends was the best in spark. And that's kind of one of the reasons he stood out and wild lot of people thought he was a steel when he was taken that was like one of the best tight end classes we expected coming out and kill was like a hidden superstar in there. And it's shown he is absolutely translating that to the field. So when we see some of these these combine numbers, and the the workout numbers tight end is is one that at least to me is highly impacted by what those. Number say. And speaking of George Kissel, hyperth-, let tight end out of Iowa. Now, we get to know a Fant who is generally considered the top tight end in the class. He'll probably be a first rounder. I don't know if he would fit the giants if we're talking about the giants moving on from ebony Ingraham aid. They probably wouldn't want to invest a first round draft pick in tight end just period. But also Fant is similar to Ingram..
