So what was your experience when facebook banned the news basically because you would have had a lot of clients who were affected ideas and there's a few things that come with that firstly it was indiscriminate.

Author Walter Jon Williams Discuses Making the Switch From Historical Fiction To SciFi

"How did you make the switch from historical to science fiction Oh that was easy by the historical The market for historical fiction in the united states completely collapsed About may of nineteen eighty two. And so what i plan is attend book series became a five book series And so i spent a desperate six months writing proposals for things that didn't sell And it was across the spectrum. I've read proposals for mysteries for historical Spent not for science victory A and everything but category romance. I think and And none of them sold. And then science fiction proposal that i had written some years before so and so i became a science fiction writer and the science fiction proposal had been bouncing around a publisher to publisher without being read I it's kind of a fascinating saga. But i was probably too long for this interview But certainly explains how publishers can screw up repeatedly and landed at tour books and the editor at that point jim bain and there are only three people in the office there was time dougherty who was the publisher jim in the editor and then those misses dorothy who ran the was the accounting department And now tories. The largest science fiction publisher. That doesn't run like that anymore. But jim bane read the proposal i bought it and it and although it had been on the markets or two or three years it actually sold to the first editor who read it. How did it not get rid at the other places that it had been Well there was a lot of mergers going on in publishing as there is now And so you say it. I don't call the exact sequence but you know it was sent to eight and susan. Allison who was the editor at ace left ace to go to berkeley. And until she was replaced they put buying hold so then it came back and then it was sent to berkeley and the decision house at berkeley and and then berkeley acquired as and suddenly they had too many manuscripts sitting in the office. So another buying hold wet. And then it went to david hartwell at times scape and it was lost in the mail room for about six months and by the time that was discovered they had put a buying hold on and and so it just kept bouncing off of these things till it actually went to an editor who still had a publishing schedule to fill up. That must've been satisfying when it finally sold rate really relieved because i was beginning to look in the help wanted section of the paper so that i could make my rent and suddenly although it has to be said that the science fiction sold for a lot less money than the historical fiction here so i was It took me a few years before. I i could reach my former miserable standard of living from from where i was merely tour instead wretched poverty. Yeah i can

Chris Kennedy and David Weber discuss their new book, "Into The Light"

"Today i'm interviewing david weber. Chris kennedy there. How are you doing today. I'm doing fine. Except i think a another dominion another another dimension on timing but aside from that all is good excellent So can you tell me about your books about our collaborative books because we only have one of those. Yes i know that you have. You have more books outside of that too. So if you'd like to talk a little bit those two okay. Chris sure Although i'm i have a few traditionally published works i'm predominantly an independent author publisher I've got about thirty books on my own as well as forty published short stories Almost all of those are science. Fiction and fantasy Also published over two hundred other books through the various imprints of christianity publishing at Unlike the pusher you were just talking to. I am simply a supplier. i Have let sixty seventy Traditionally published books out I guess the two that people know me for our the honor harrington series with bain books and the Safe hold series with tour But i also have some fantasy scattered through their primarily military science fiction. Although i actually think of it almost as political science fiction because i spend so much time in the nuts and bolts of the politics of my various liberate. Worlds right so actually. Can you talk a little bit about military science fiction. You said political science fiction. Because i before starting your book no idea that this was a genre and i know how is not notice but well into the light actually bins jonynas just just Just oil yeah. Yeah the only other thing. I've got that really came close to that i think is In theory born in which i Pair a female commando with The last surviving. Greek fury but Military science fiction is science fiction which is primarily in which the conflict is primarily centered around A military conflict not simply social dynamics or or philosophical You actually have people shooting each other pretty much In terms of it The reason that i said Political science fiction is that there's military science fiction. There's what i think of as militaristic science fiction tony bain actually coined that term for me. Militaristic science fiction is written by people who just went to write something. A lot of people get shot. I mean it's at is written by people who frequently don't understand how the military works at all in real life How politics impact The military so when i'm writing military science fiction i try to give the political background that is driving these people to do something as inherently Not saying as shooting other human beings if you follow what i'm saying. Yeah i typically just stay with the military side I generally don't get into the politics as much However with twenty years of being a naval aviator i do have a a decent idea of how military's work out. Show off help. Okay and well in david does too. I mean he's done so much research on military things that i'm sure he knows you know a a wide variety of military's that that i've never looked at so in. They're they're all pretty much the same under the skin in a lot of ways. Somebody just sent me a a pay stub from a roman legionnaire. That they absurd. I saw that. No i saw that thing. Yes they excavated at. What's left of the pay slip of a roman legionnaire from the from israel in And it's all about what he had to pay the quartermaster. For food and everything else. It turns out that he got paid. He paid the quartermaster and he was flat broke again. Some things don't change a lot okay so you were talking a little bit about it already. But what is your collaboration process. Look like in like there's different perspectives in this book's one of you gravitate more towards the perspectives or Okay i do collaborations with quite a i. I am somebody who is in one. Its comfortable doing collaborations and in another sense. Not i am not. I am not comfortable doing a collaboration in which somebody says okay. I'm going to put my name on the book. You write it I'm going to be involved in collaboration. I'm going to be hands on which chris found out i expected to. I mean it was your your you know your series to start with And i'm i'm kind of the the squatter in it so i. I knew that you would have many ideas for where the series was going to go and what it was gonna look like And i came in welling came in willing to work within that framework.

"Yulia gif bain. Welcome to the voice. Podcast hey breath how are you. I've really i'm really good. It's great to finally get on the bike. We've been talking about this for at least two months. So i'm happy that we're able to arrange the the funny thing is in the interim we seem to have spent a lot of time on clubhouse together so maybe we could have just done this year like two weeks ago. Yeah yeah spending a lotta time there all right so i think there's a there's a lot of story to be told here because you've you've been in the industry for a while but i think there's an interesting i that i wanted to start with. I wanna talk about speak to it. Maybe maybe your journey in voice day. I started before that. Because i i know that you study computational linguistics as an undergraduate but what i draw you to the idea of of using speech technology and actually building an assistant. Yeah so i would say like initially it was not about speech was about like chat bots and chat right so i started to work on some like chat bots dick like question answering systems back university as you mentioned yelich. All i was doing the computational linguistics relatively randomly so i was like interested in an internship in it company and the a guy who was like my manager there. He was a computational linguists so He had some interesting like thanks for us to do to research. Soviet play with chad bots. So i remember. I think like i published my first article question answering systems back in two thousand towards southern three and then later maybe in two thousand seven i was also working on the project related to chat bots. We created a platform where users could create their own chat bots like mostly for fun Trades they're like our cars teach them to Like teach them different things And then place them to like blogs Social networks websites and see how they shot to like their friends read logs and and Correct them so and later Like when the star to speak to There was this kind of state where got relatively good quality of speech recognition. Then mostly available. Either roy door or some commercial solutions like like from nuance. You've got a mobile devices that our full enough and Kevin good interfaces such as like iphones and androids and There was like this tendency of Api's of like web services so mehan co-founders. We basically thought that if we combine all of this right open api is and and smartphones and voice. We could get A voice personal assistant. That will understand what you are asking about support station and then like connect to a those. Api's and get an answer for you or like have an action Down for you. So this is how this idea of speak to appeared and what year the little. Yeah the end of two thousand ten and to ten okay. So that's around the same time that the siri app. I came out and ios correct. Yes yes yes frankly. We didn't know about siri when we started to sing about the same main difference was that we started with. Hr bought right so we'll just because of our experience chat bots before idea was that won't i. We create a bot that you can talk to about anything and it supports conversation just question answer and then starts like injection different services to you know. Let's add the weather. Let's add local storage and so on but initially we would say you know you can just talk to talk to it Speak to about anything and by the way to also help like multiple different requests

How Real Estate Sells Cars with Gina McCartney

"Gina, welcome to . the It show is great to have you speaking to us today. Maybe just to kick things off can you maybe just tell us a bit about Gina McCartney - who you are and some background. . to thank Yes, I'm yourself sure, you so Gi for na McCartney having me here today. Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now. Residential business at develop a business emotional property meteorologisy and clients and also to stint in malaysia. And i leave the win. We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.

"But he didn't interview with a design and he was talking about the school. He started in his home country. In bob way in harare. Call the zimbabwe institute of visual arts. And he's been doing that now for about twenty years. I think probably a little over twenty years. And one of the main sticking points of this interview was about decolonizing design and how he sort of took kind of took umbrage with the term because to him he was saying something along. The lines of you know if you wanna decolonize design the people that are saying that. Have no idea what it means to be colonized. And i don't know if that was like a african african american dig or african verse american. I don't know if that's what that was about. But part of what he was. Also saying is will water they decolonizing to like what's on the other side of that. I suppose and i sort of have to sit with that question for a little bit. Because i see where he's coming from and certainly that is is also coming from lived experience. But i think what and correct me if i'm wrong here when i think of decolonizing design i'm thinking just sort of you know when when old film cameras have the the shudder like you can have a very tight aperture that tight aperture at least for design tends to only be on european design particularly like swiss design or or dutch or german. Or something like that and so to me. When i think of decolonizing designers just opening the aperture to include more cultures and what their designs might be like for example i spoke at accompanying wanted me to speak on a panel to them to their design team earlier twenty twenty and they were like oh well you know like where do we start like you know i learn the bow house style or whatever and design school like where do we start and i think i was just saying that you know. Africa has like over. Fifty countries like pick a country and start there like a lot of it. I feel like this has to be sort of self guided research. And i don't know if folks are looking for a book or a typed out curriculum. You know what do you think about that. Well and it's interesting. I've i've sat on many panels. And i've done talks and i often say it's not rocket science. There's google get on google and type in there and you're gonna find if you're looking you're gonna find it too so just to come back to the point about the whole point decolonization. You're quite right. I think it's actually a mix of things so it is opening the aperture and as we're doing in the classroom right now of aperture and getting people to realize. Oh they do it. There are a vast array of designers of different ethnicities and.

6 essential lessons for women leaders

"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem. Is we still all have sexist stereotypes wearing in the back of our brains. I was portrayed as out of touch. Because i don't have children as even compared to a barren cow in the bush. Distant to be killed for hamburger means. That's horrible at you. Face that stereotype. While i was worried that people will think i couldn't do my job. My family was young. I enjoyed token to new zealand's prime minister justin that dan about experience as its second woman ever to have a child while being national leader. I was very taken by. Has saying she doesn't think she gets the work life balance right

"Hi james ben. How are you not great. To be honest. i was gonna say happy new year. I personally have doing very well. This is a this. Is the story of the past forever. I personally doing quite well having a great day You know woke up at a good night's sleep got a lot of work done. This morning am feeling good about as far as energy speaking as far as writing this afternoon just the actual what. I'm going to write the the the circumstances of the world and we right. It is not great at feels like a recurring theme sitting from your perch in taiwan over the past twelve months. Let's not talk about that. No one wants to hear about that. Okay fair enough. So we are emergency podcasting. Although we're doom or one. I think we missed a in the context of it's weird because i think there's been a desire to at least on my part to avoid her probably in part because the reason you don't wanna be hyperbolic and your statements or overstate. Anything is because then when the time truly comes when it's appropriate but hyperbolic then. You've wasted it right. You've wasted sort of the impact. And i think that the idea though of saving hyperbole in saving sort of grants statements is for days like today like where bad things are happening. That are big problem. And i think that I'd love to talk to you. Not just about what's going on but also what i what i think i'm gonna write today and get your take on that yeah i i sympathize with a hyperbole. I actually me of of a conversation. We had previously when you alike bay specific around your words when talking about facebook and like make money selling us a data and it's like that lesson stuck with me and i think it's right because when it does come time to actually get specific and like you said get hyperbolic public hyperbolic hyperbolic knots. Anything you've got you've held it in reserve for when you need it. But yeah i'd love to have a conversation like that. Let's do it so for those listening. This podcast will probably come out on friday morning. Us time we are recording on wednesday night. Us time i am about to write What i'm going to post on thursday morning. Us time so you're going to read what i right before you listen to this but we are knocking before i write it. So this is sort of the timeline here and it was funny because you actually ping me and i was in the middle of a call. I was thinking. I need a pig. You it like just to just to talk this through. And i think the way we're referring to obviously what's happening in the us. Capitol where rioters mob stormed the us capital and were basically egged on by the president of the united states. Who was seeking to overturn th results of the election. That he lost. I wanna go back actually. To is interesting we talk about the this sort of language hyperbole and whatnot and i wanna go back to twenty sixteen because win this was in december of two thousand sixteen and donald trump had just been elected president news president elect and as president-elect do he was holding transition meetings naming cabinet members etc and sort of to our point. There is a lot of people that were you know for again for for reasons that can understand. We're we're flipping out about this and you do remember what there was going to be that big roundtable with like tech leaders and there was a lot a lot of talk in chatter that all these tech leaders should refuse to go to this meeting and i can definitely imagine folks who were arguing at the time that those tech leaders refused gotomeeting saying pointing to what happened today. And see. that's why you should refuse to that meeting at the time. Said they should. And i stand by that. I think i love to talk through that. I think it helps give context to where my head is today. I wanna see if that makes sense to you if it makes sense to you within. Hopefully it'll make sense to my readers. Our listeners yeah. I think that makes sense My initial reaction is it does make sense to me like i mean. This is almost been a recurring theme over the past four years in that. It's an imposition of people's one person has a point of view. And they want to impose that on the world and and they want to impose it on social media companies and twitter or facebook. They should just be censoring the president. And and your point has bain hang on. This guy got elected president and especially back at the start. Two thousand sixteen. This guy's got elected president. Now it's one thing to introduce a cost or to react to something he did. That's undemocratic but at that point just outright refusing to do it doesn't strike me as as a reasonable thing to do in a democracy. That's exactly right. There's a there's a phrase that i use that is widely used this original to me but is this idea that elections have consequences and the reality is is that trump won in two thousand sixteen. He didn't and given that he won for a private tech company. Leader to sort of unilaterally. Say no. i'm not gonna go meet with the president of the united states. Who according to the law and according to the rules won the election of the country that has all the rules and the the groundwork and the foundation that makes my entire business possible and makes it possible for me to ruins a providence. To me is a big problem. It is a wrong way to think about the issue.

"Today i it a go into. I guess covering what many of you will either be going through now or have been going through a we wile and some of you. Well this'll be completely if you're looking to venture into The markets and that is the the nice is they are out there. They've very powerful their voices because they love to Bring you back. They lie back. I mean what we call it in. Australia's told poppy syndrome. People don't like to see people moving outside of this social group and moving onto bigger and better things is must just be that we wide to fill good around the people that we're with. That are the siamese us for some bizarre reason the point they're trying to make his. You have people that are going to call you crazy right. I know i did when i left. Noosa heads which is where i was from. I went and distant travel new zealand for wall. Did a few bits and pieces like that but still hadn't really worked at exactly what it was. I wanted to do trading. It always bain day except for authorized to be stockbroker bunch of different things and then i went to london and i don striding to try to pretty much as soon as i got that. You're not long sort of settling in his filing needle trading and trying man. I had the opportunity to take over the family business. That's builder no certainly would would've make pretty sweet law business on lovely part of the world and it was all already sort of set off to walk into the hard work of building. The business had already been done to to a certain degree. Where could just walk in. And you know well. He went but i went to my path. I decided to trade index get involved in the markets mainly because i saw how much stress and how hot it was to manage the logic finding now that i do have a growing team now. I did like the idea that i could just try from anywhere in the world and effectively. You sort of leave. The lot that i wanted to live now works really well in my early twenty also mid mid twenties probably when it started actually work actually be okay at it and then leading into about twenty nine twenty eight to have my daughter in sydney. He was a pretty simple pretty cruzi. Lost once i got the hang of the tried again but the whole point was it took a lot of work to get to that stage. And you can have these people saying house trading going like as if they're expecting you to file they want you to file they're expecting you to fall on your face not be success worth. You're going to have to deal with these people and the hottest point in which you're gonna have to deal with them when you're actually do start to have a bit of a poor run because you're going to have one we we all do i. It's just part of growing up as a traitor. Suppose that you will have these periods of time where you do great that you do question yourself and you might even want to give up key. Jeez i i was close to giving up plenty of times but you know it did drive me. It was the fact that you know for me. When i said i wasn't going to take over the family business after having said that i would when i was like sixteen or something was the thought my dad'll why don't care what you do. Just just do it. Well be the best status now claiming to be the best at trading but the message was just be really good. Do the best you possibly. Can you know to me. Froude do the right thing and they good at it now. That message in my head. Everytime i thought of giving out it was simply put in my head. That was look. You gotta adad you go to this self. You got to prove that you can do this you you you. You know you can do this. Don't give up because if you give up now then are you a quitter or someone who's going to follow throat and i kept going on a kept guyana. Kept going when you have those feelings of down and you have the people in the back of your mind. Lucky ahead or in front of your face saying has trading going and egging. You want to file. This is where you need to have that really really strong resolve. Because yeah you know if you've got the audacity to live the life that you want to live and you're going to have some struggles and gonna have some people that are gonna say all sorts of crap to you. Let me tell you from someone who's on the other side of the trading spectrum. I'm still trying to learn a lot more in the business world and doing what. I'm doing it demand but you know from the things you put the work in the rewards. I worth it. You just need to keep yourself in that position where people don't affect you so determined to achieve what you set out to achieve that nothing will get in your way so there are going to be people out there that are gonna pull you back. Don't listen to them and if you are going to listen to them use that as fuel for the fodder drive you ford to be the best you possibly can because there would be nothing sweeter than one day you saying. How's he going and i said what. Are you talking about. Just quick mind. Because i've tried full-time young for surf in these sorts of things. Not that you want to be rude. Twenty buddy but you know it would feel if you had to go back to those paper and basically say tell just say i did it. I'm here mall office. Awesome took some time. It took a lot of f it a lot of work. And i'm still working to stay there but i've done it have a good day

Why You DON'T Need to Wait 3-5 Days Between New Foods with Carina Venter, PhD, RD

"Here is karina ventner talking about why you do not need to wait three to five days between new foods all right. Hi karina welcome to the podcast. Thank you bain vegetation. Will i cannot tell you excited i am. I have been a huge fan of your work for awhile. Now and i had the big smile face. I heard you on the recent fair webinar saying that. We don't need to be telling parents to wait three to five days between introducing new foods and everyone on my team. We were watching simultaneously. All shaking your heads and yes yes. Finally someone has the courage to say this. So i'm wondering if we could talk just a little bit about the infamous and confusing guidance. That parents here to this day all the time. it's usually from their pediatrician. They think they need to wait three to five days between trying new foods with their babies. Where did this come from. is it true. What are your thoughts on that statement. So the interesting thing is i work very closely with dr gupta. Who recently published a paper on this indicating that up to about fifty percent of pediatricians to vice families to follow this advice. Am i e waiting three to five days a week trying new foods and so when the wind back and tried to find ways this originate from we cannot actually find regional data but it is clearly the advice that is currently displayed and available on the american academy of pediatrics website. And also on the same for disease control websites over the embassy. Dc still stylized patterns to wake up to five days between introducing new foods and and we are hoping that they will be reviewing this advice. Certain okay what would be like the reality of that actually happening. Like i know how. Some of these bodies work. I think for example like twenty years ago when i was studying to be a dietitian we were taught. Wait until age one to introduce egg white and now whom you look at the data we know that the earlier deduction of the allergenic foods helps prevent food allergy. I think back like well. Why were we learning that and being taught that there was no evidence to support that just like seemed like a good idea. And i kinda get the same vibe with the three to five day recommendation. Like it's out there but it's not cited it's not referenced is not based on any evidence and yet it's become the the day facto recommendation. That parents are still hearing. How can we change this. If there is no research to support that yes you know. I wonder if it will go this way as the early alison advice said. We're not started my phd in two thousand one. The advice in the united kingdom at the time was not to give peanuts in hydro infants up to about age although the exact Fans from hottest families may wish nor to introduce peanuts up to three years of age and they need was actually the data from my phd sharing that. Hang on you know. Perhaps that's not the right advice. It was an observational study. At the time. They didn't have to go to change the guidance. From saying don't wait to give but they did actually change the guidance to say we're not really sure if we should wait with introducing peanut allergens actually took a very well conducted are not and the trial introducing peanuts and early life in the first year of life and in hydro infants to actively change the guidance to say now we do want to introduce peanuts actively in the first year of life and so i'm not sure if the street you five days waiting advice would go the same way. Hopefully we can have some day and perhaps we will talk about the diversity data later on. Perhaps that's good enough observational data to say well. Perhaps you know we could just say we're not shooting reshoot weights three to five days and then i wonder if it will take an our cd which will be difficult to conduct but to get us to actively jank the guidance say we can do one new food everyday and to discuss observational data about at least food preferences when we don't wait three to five days and if you would be interested in that yeah and i think my audience there maybe familiar with peanut guidelines in the leap. Study that she's mentioning. You guys is the learning earlier about peanut allergy. And it's this landmark study. That really just changed the way. We look at the introduction of foods. But i'm just curious carina is there anything underway. I mean are you and your team. Would you ever consider doing a randomized control trial about the waiting three to five days because as far as i know having done this anecdotally with tens of thousands of families there's never any adverse reactions that occur from introducing low risk foods one per day. Yes we built in that observation pad for the allergenic foods but as far as introducing the low risk foods one per day. Do you recommend that as well. Because wouldn't you see the majority of the indicators of an allergic reaction in the minutes and hours following the ingestion of the food not days and weeks later are not aware of anybody doing an archie really focusing on the three to five days introduction. I would love to do a study like back but we still have more work to do in the food allergy wealth and so i am involved in a trial that will start. 'em eddie next yet. Nate by dr chicago from chicago way. We will actively be introducing major allergens in the first year of life compared to control group. I'm working with you very wonderful. Dietitians on the study as well and we will be monitoring how long the parents way between introduction of foods in the active drought baby will be advising to just do one new food today and versus the control group which will hopefully still wait three to five days so that we do have do not competitive groups and hopefully that will give us enough information to go back to the cdc and the ma ap and also that national institutes of health and site while perhaps this is good enough data to now withdraw that guidance.

"Are you today. Excellent happy december. Absolutely i'm to leave. I'm going to lead the year out of that happy but you know happy december. The did you see the video. That ryan reynolds production company created about two days ago. Yes with devil and twenty twenty i. I've seen he says. I have not seen all of it but it looks really good zip So the story line for those who haven't seen it basically it's an ad for match dot com. Which is a dating site. And you've got the devil Who gets a notification on his phone saying that he's got a a match on match dot com and it's this girl who he goes to the meats and he says two zero two zero and she says call me twenty twenty they hang out together and the world's gown absolute crap and at the end this sitting side by side on a park benches asteroids flying in and hitting the earth the devils going. Be she to wind. And don't forget the required dumpster fire in the background. So yeah it's pretty indicative of this year. I think it is So how has your last. Seven days bain. My friend It's good a little busy a little. I had a lot of presentations this week. Which you know that's good. That's that's making money now and in pandemic time but i will tell you. I did something that i've never done before. So if you're if the listeners wanna check this out they can feel free to weigh in on this and maybe we'll talk about it next week. But i did a presentation for olympus yesterday run and You can see this presentation. It was a livestream. We did it on the olympics. The us olympics facebook page. So it's get ged t get. Olympus is the username. And i decided to kind of go out on a limb and they were kind enough to let me do it so they asked if i would participate in this twelve days of christmas promotion that they're doing and i said of course being and they said it'd be cool if you could you know do something about Doing like holiday portraits in creative things for holiday portraits and again. That's cool at sept-. I can't really shoot. Be because of this pandemic stuff and my wife is immuno-compromised song they're gonna bring a model makeup artist and that kind of stuff but the light bulb went off. I said i'll tell you what if you're game. I'd like to actually take it to the extreme and do our. But i don't wanna show any pictures at all. Wow a single picture. And i'm not gonna take any pictures so i'm going to do a one hour presentation about taking creative holiday portrait's and not show pictures and i'll admit they raise an eyebrow but they said hey we trust you you know your stuff so it's like okay and it was pretty well received so what i did just not scaring people completely is. I decided that it would be really cool to try and get people's creative thoughts going. So what i did show are lots of props but like you know the obvious christmas decoration things like to so garland nat but i had glasses drinking glasses and glass vases and i had some material things and i talked through all these different things that you could do to make your holiday. Portraits were interesting with the idea. Being that i didn't want to give people an example so that they could be lazy and just copied the example. I wanted to kind of plant an idea and really it. Any motion and challenge. And then olympus was was good enough. They agreed that we would run a little hashtag contest with it and The deadline is december twentieth. And the best shots that we pick olympus. Us and uk are going to share on their facebook pages and they're instagram stories. And then separately from olympus. I'm going to pick a one winter. The coolest shot the most creative idea that i find in the group and i'm going to do a one hour video consultation with them. Whatever topic they won't we can talk about their photography to a portfolio review post processing business. Whatever so so far experiments also good start it was it was pretty well received. There are a few people that were not happy that we weren't showing vigils. Most people actually commented if they thought it was actually a really neat thing because they were sitting there listening and they were actually able to imagine ideas in their mind based on where they're going to be for the holidays or based on their house and decorations. So we'll see i. You know i figure. Hey gotta take a chance. Every now and say in principle that sounds like the absolute ideal way to approach that. Because as you say the minute you put up images people are just going to go. How can i recreate that. It's what i want them to do. Is get away from those to actually get creative and yes right. So i i went to great lengths to really kind of describe my ideas in detail how i would go about doing them but i didn't want to show them ideas and i'll i'll make sure i share the link to the lies yea totally so it It was it was kind of fun doing it. I won't i won't lie. I was a little worried the whole time. Because as i'm talking to the camera i can't really watch the comments so i'm thinking all right she like this or they hate it. When i finish talking. I was almost afraid to look at the comments

Guitar Center Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy In Wake of Debt Restructure

"Hope you all had a good if quiet thanksgiving yesterday. Maybe it's been some of that time playing music guitar. Sales picked up this year. Many observers shock the guitar had been in a death spiral for years. According to the new york times writer. Alex williams reminded readers than twenty seventeen. Eric clapton himself said maybe the guitar is over. But this september the times reversed course hold the obituaries. Williams wrote six months into the pandemic. He wrote quote. People are turning to the guitars. Quarantine companion and psychological south spurring a surge in sales for some of the most storied companies. That has shocked. Even industry veterans sales of fender guitars especially the iconic stratocaster are off the charts so to gibson which had declared bankruptcy in two thousand eighteen and other instrument makers in virtual teachers are also happily for the most part struggling to keep up with demand to capitalize on that trend. Guitar center is airing twenty-five inspirational origin. Stories from musicians on. Its youtube channel. The retailers make music. Camping started early this month. They'll keep adding new performer. Profile through december twenty four th in addition guitar center is asking musicians everywhere to post their own videos to social media answering the question hashtag why we make music kicking off guitar. Center's campaign was grammy award winning musician. Hdr talking about being surrounded by musicians as a child. Here's a clue. My dad had a cover band when i was a little girl and they would rehearse every family gathering you know my mom's filipino. Filipinos love karaoke. So a lot of karaoke housing's lot. James brown and you know a bunch of old guys you know playing bass drums and jim out all the time in my house. But here's the rub a surging guitar keyboard and drum sales has bullied guitar center but not anywhere near enough last saturday. The country's largest music retailer filed for chapter eleven protection cove forced closures earlier. This year brought the struggling guitar center to the breaking point. Even though online sales picked up later in the year the business will continue selling instruments online and off and said it will continue paying employees and vendors in full guitar center operates. Three hundred stores in the. Us also owns music and arts which sells and rents instruments to school orchestras through. Its two hundred stores. Guitar center hopes to exit bankruptcy by the end of the year. It's difficulties began years ago. Actually two thousand seven. Bain capital took it private in a leveraged buyout. That deal left guitar center with more than a billion dollars of debt. The new york times reported under its bankruptcy plan about eight hundred million dollars of debt will be wiped out still retail dive reports that leveraged buyouts of led to the struggles or outright downfalls of numerous retailers think sears neiman marcus and lucky brands among others but for guitar center online rivals also hurt amazon of course but also sweetwater which specializes in music and audio equipment unlike amazon it employs sales people knowledgeable about both music and audio equipment sweetwaters sales of instruments in podcast gear have spiked during the pandemic. All of which is why. It's so important for tar center to employ a little inspiration to sell as many guitars and other instruments this holiday season as it possibly can to stars potential stars and well the rest of us

"Let's get back to joaquin neiman. Did was there. Anyone who would have been the person that you would have been the most nervous to be around either to have played with or walk by on the range. Or if they're watching you hit balls on the range you'd have been nervous to be around. Who someone that that at that age would have major nervous riley. Yeah probably playing around here. I think i think the first time i saw was the moriarty was late north third or four tournament which Experience i remember. I was playing great. I was almost the last ruben sunday. I mean i could hear that. There was not only ten groups front but i could hear everything that's note and the people following him by think. Sergio helped me a lot to like. Get that pressure off. You know like lie. Know him. Before i turn pro. I will to play with him before on unknown how good they are also know that i can like i can be here. You know. I was actually at that memorial that year and i remember watching. Ut off on the tenth hole once. i'd never seen you hit a ball in person and it just stuck out to me immediately and do on tv. And i'm sure you hear a lot about how low you hit the ball and i'm just curious. Has that always been the case. And is that something that you know you. You were aware of growing up or any special reason. Why would hit the ball. Low and chile. Or do you think about that at all non. It was is fine because at the beginning that league union a lot of confidence. When i'm like a little bit nebulous son. I need to hit the way. I'll heed that show on a new. I remember when i start being professional a using. That showed that now during the time. Yeah i've been using it less. I'd i'd be using more hydro. I'm just trying to hit farther on. May i have that show that. I feel really confident when a heated unease yummies late may go to That's what i was. I was curious. And i was looking back at the highlights from when you won at greenbrier every now and then that forty one foot apex driver shot comes out and i was. I was just interesting because of how different the game appear the direction. The game appears to be heading seems to be you know track man. Everyone's telling you hit it high. Hit hi hi. I'm wondering if you know as you were transitioning from amador into pareo if anybody came along and said hey you could hit it this much further if you hit it higher or but i think what you just said though it's interesting how you've you've prioritized accuracy. But i'm wondering if if that has evolved at all over the years. I remember when i played. Infirm courses The bogus along. Way i Relate to two seventy and he runs it. Depends on the fairway ferry. Sometimes when their firm for example greenbrier they allowed so sometimes is not that short by yemi normally. I've been preferring. yes More with hydro. Sometimes i got bunkers around when he died.

Principal Kafele: Tips and Tricks to Flourish with Hybrid Learning

"Can you tell us some cool things and some maybe some tips and tricks for how you can thrive in a hybrid environment. Yeah definitely been It's truly been a whirlwind as an educator in the classroom of trial and error for sure. But i've been trying out teaching in my class. Different things such as rotations enduring are high flex time so instead of teaching synchronous lee and the classroom i've been actually teaching my virtual kids first and then teaching my class kids second so What we do is we build up to. We're building up essentially to a station rotation model for blended learning space. I teach my virtual group. I while i while my in class kids engaged in a retrieval practice activity based around concepts that. We've already learned to commit that information to long term. Memory retrieval practices one of my newest favorite professional development pieces. You tell me like. I'm a kindergartner. What is what's retrieval practice. And why is it getting a lot of hype right now. So retrieval practice will i i. I need to Really put out there. That patrice bain and pooja. Argh wall who wrote powerful teaching It's one of the professional developments that were actually doing our district right. Now have written this amazing book to talk. About how retrieval practice which is the practice of actually pulling information out of our brain is so important in the education setting because a lot of what we do in education is encoding so we give students information but we never really ask them to remember that information until it's a high stakes environment such as an assessment. So the idea. Around retrieval practice is that we are giving them more opportunities and a low stakes environment in order to allow them to practice their remembering of information and concepts and the ideas that we can get foundational information down and pat so that we can move onto those higher level. Like bloom's taxonomy of creating an analyzing in order to have a more Successful classroom environment and have students understanding concepts at higher levels. The that's fascinating so basically having kids dig back for information helps them. Actually learn is kind of what retrieval does shocking. Right like practice remembering you. You drive to one place you practice driving that place. You're going to remember that route no matter what and then it just becomes you drive there and text of the same time. I hope not or listen to rain So i interrupted you. Sorry so what's going on hybrids with retrieval and all that stuff. Sorry no problem. That was a great no background to what the my in class kids are. Actually doing while. I'm teaching my virtual students. So students are working on retrieval activities and while they work independently on those retrieval activities. Which again are based on previous concepts. So it's independent. Because they know it and they won't need my support for it. I give a mini lesson to my students at home and we do guided practice. And then i send them on their way to finish the rest of the independent work and then i teach again my second mini lesson all over again with students in the classroom and i found that by teaching in rotations. Like this i was better able to connect with each group of students especially in the elementary setting. They know when. You're talking to the what i call the zuma's and when you talk to the rumors zuma's in room just some of that so it's been a really great way to build that capacity with students in the room and then also online and then i've also found some like to really big tidbits. This year is that it's important to go. Slow to go fast Modeling and practicing how to use these different online platforms and tools to help build their capacity. So that they can masterfully. Use it on their own And then also making That homework incredibly scaffold so that they also again have that capacity to do it independently and be able to provide an extension for students who are able to move through the material quickly and then the scaffold portion if they were moving through it at a normal pace than they could just stop with the independent essentially. So it's been an adventure We're finding what works for us and truly getting into group at this point.

And you know you were raised as men to sort of like headfirst and hit hardest and you know and not being encouraged to express their emotions know. Violence is often something comes to the to the fore Certainly as a little effeminate introverted boy myself. i'm not even talking about the character. I was incredibly lonely There was just no place in society for me. And when i talked to other writers when we talk about sort of like homophobia of the time and it can be wrapped low in sort of religious ideals.

Not just by the character of the mother or the character of shaggy but the characters of their next door neighbors and how desperate they are.

I think. A kind of lov that does exist for a queer boy the love from the mother. Oh definitely and and i think also love is the heart of the book it is a love story it covers a lot of subjects and a low of themes but at the heart of a is about the love between the mother and the son and one of my favorite scenes in the bouquets. His mother has her first date in the longest time With a new man those come into our life and she's asked dougie to teach her how to dan's like the kids today do and so he is dancing for her and showing her some moves so mid eighties moves and unbeknownst to him the kids on the housing scheme outsider looking in their front window and they're mocking him and agnes realizes this but she doesn't tell shaggy and she can come into to keep dancing and then when he realizes that they're mocking. These kids are watching through the window. He freezes and you know he brings them to tears tears of shame and she just says you've got to keep dancing no matter what it is You know just keep going.

He said that the time feels right and that he knows the business will now be in good hands, but there are very strong rumors that skaara was forced out of the position or chose to leave because he fundamentally disagreed with action Bane is taken the airline back when Bain Capital was announced as the preferred buyer of Virgin Australia many feared that rather than doing what they said.

Unfortunately, the new owners are also now trying to negotiate with the various unions and those negotiations over Enterprise. Bargaining Agreements are not going. Well. Ben wants to slash Pilots pay by around 30 to 40% and cut flight attendant pay significantly as well flight attendants would also lose lose their overnight allowance, which is around $125 a night each night that they're away from home and their Duty time limit would also be increased from 9.455 to 12 hours per shift which would make same-day return trips from Sydney or Brisbane and Perth possible versions customers are also starting to feel let down many have not received refunds for flights that Vision had canceled and earlier this week. It also emerged that version cab and crew are taking sick leave to avoid dealing with business class passengers that are unhappy about being served. Noodles as the in-flight meal and unfortunately, that's a pretty accurate reflection of where virgin is right. Now in fairness to Virgin their website does say that complimentary meals and the purchase of additional food and drinks will not be available on board, but they do promise that each guest is going to be served a snack and water regardless of the cabin and even that's not really happening at the moment virgin is a sub so long on stock that it's now rationing the snacks. It serves to economy class passengers and there's no longer any Diet Coke or wine for business class passengers, they're out and not getting any more stock but catering worries aside. There is still also no indication. If or when Virgin Australia's lounges will reopen there's now speculation that bank Capital could close even more lounges than they originally announced an a virgin is also cutting some of the benefits offered to frequent flyers when traveling with International partner Airlines velocity frequent flyer announced this week that it will no longer award points or status Chrome.

"That is the latest today, Bain capital among the most active with respect to raising money, successfully in deploying, it, joining us, you're so lucky to have Jonathan Levin co managing partner of Bain capital normally based in Boston. But gracing us with his presence here in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studios Jonathan your firm overseas so much of this debt. Eighty five billion dollars in assets under management, are you concerned about the amount of money being raised given the fact that there really aren't that many assets to buy will? I think you have to think about the world more globally. I ten. Years ago. If somebody were to ask us about the market or to ask us about credit. They would really be asking about the US buyout business and the US credit business in really, we actually manage one hundred and eight billion dollars of which forty one billion is in credit, but that credit is senior and junior it's over. It's it's in Europe US Asia, Australia and the credit asset class has become quite nuanced in terms of the types of risk, you can take the types of liquidity, you can take in the geographies you participate in and those are not as correllated as they were ten years ago when the story was whatever happens in US, high yield was the entire story. So Jonathan worked or ten plus years in to this economic cycle. You're the chief, I guess. I guess, you know, chief credit investment officer, you need to really think about the quality of the credit wear investment, when you think about the credit quality and deals. You're seeing now. How's it looking? So I think that the degree of difficulty has gone up. There's clearly larger use of pro forma 's, but I've made it clear that not all pro forma 's are, are good or bad performance. What are you talking about forecast by the company forecast adjustments in earnings, almost always for the positive? Okay. So I have yet to see one where somebody said, our numbers are going to be worse in the future than they are today. And they really take three types. They take tangible. Upside to earning that you can achieve in quantify, there's things that are dependent on growth, and then there's things that I would call a highly ambitious market top type of behavior, so consolidating factories, clearly, quantifiable, a software company that's growing quickly. You can't take last year's earnings in just grow. You know, run it out because there is some obvious growth things like pro forma future revenue synergies. I don't even know what that is. But I have seen that, in a pro forma you, you don't you don't take that because there is some margin of safety in there. And if you take every possible thing that can happen to the company, and then the sponsor pays for that in their purchase price. And then you borrow against that your margin of safety if the economy slows down has gone away. So one thing that people have said, is that private equity sponsors of which bane counts itself among them, I know that, that's not necessarily your day to day focus as much. As perhaps, the credit investments that their sponsorship has led to a deterioration the credit quality of some of the credit, particularly the bonds and loans that companies are issuing. Do you find that from the credit investor standpoint? I think that it is very much industry specific company specific and sponsor specific sponsors like us have one hundred people who go in and work with companies and really only invest in companies, where we can add value in help change the answer versus other types of investors who may be participating in the upside beta of the market and at this stage in in any cycle. The marginal deal is probably not the best deal that does not mean that all the deals being done are troublesome. All the deals being done are, are bad. You just need to make sure that you're investing in areas that can wheth-. Recycle because I'm not saying, whether there will willow will not, but it certainly more likely than it would have been ten years ago to you wanna make sure that you're in industries in business models that are sustainable, and three you wanna make sure that you have a capital structure that can weather restore so which, which industries are sustainable in the next cycle, and which aren't well, it's interesting. It used to be that technology with something. Everybody was scared of and technology, everybody viewed as vaporware or internet concepts like from one when the bubble happened in really, when you think about technology. There's lots of different types of technology as a lender, software businesses that are subscription businesses. Really, good razor and razor blade types of technology businesses really good. What you have to watch out for is where people are taking equity risk with debt business models that have to reinvent themselves, where there massive amounts of capital expenditures, that are required. And you have to refresh the product on a very short life cycle, tesla. I don't know. I don't know go ahead. All no such out of it. I mean, what are the issues geopolitical risks? And there was always a part of the credit checklist, you have to deal with. But it just seems like maybe in the last couple of years, geopolitical risk, whether it's trade tensions with China or European risks with Brexit. How you've how are the folks at Bain factory that into your credit analysis? So I think there's two things. One is the requirement for imagination almost exceeds the requirement for analysis because the sort of standard bell curve of what economic policy trade policy international treaties, look like has gone out the window, and therefore outcomes. I mean, if I'm sure you remember, you know early on people were like there is no way Brexit will pass and that was the operating assumption. And then once bragged is Brexit past the markets cratered for a half hour and then bounce back because they're like, well, it'll won't get implemented, and it hasn't been implemented. So what we try to do is think of a an array of outcomes, and test, our hypothesis against that. And obviously, you can't protect against every downside, but certainly being more broadly, being more broadly. Analytical about tariffs trade wars. Immigration, things like that are just a new requirement. So just in, in about thirty seconds which areas in the world, do you, see, as the potentially most fruitful when it comes to distrust at opportunities so over the last several years, eighty percent of our investing has actually taken place globally outside the United States, the, the ways that different economies worked through the crisis has resulted in very different opportunities. And we've spent a lot of time, working on non-performing loan portfolios coming out of European banks, which are still in need of capital and the Asian capital markets, which, as I said earlier, about technology. It's not a thing. It's a lot of things provide a lot of diversity. Whether it's distressed debt in, in India NPL's in China or private lending in Australia. Right. Johnson levine. Thank you so much that we have to leave it there. We're going to definitely get you back in the studio. Next time you're in New York.

Talk a little bit about this fund launch which would be probably the, way he'd. Raise money And and his work at Bain capital if we could all listen to cut four I'm having a terrific. Time in in this fun that we that we we live it's a fund that invests in companies in order to drive social. And environmental impact was part of this impact investing. Industry or trend one of my partners describes it as describes impact investing as the laboratory where capitalist work. To reform capitalism and I think we're doing a, lot of good aggregate trying to discern demonstrate that you don't have to trade return for impact and I think we're off to. A terrific start now I know when Mitt Romney was attacked for his association with. With, Bain capital in two thousand, twelve I know you didn't personally criticize pain back then but given the way the way that the, Democratic Party went after. Being during that race and the way that, Hillary Clinton faced so much criticism from the lab For her speeches to Goldman Sachs in two thousand sixteen did you have any reservations at all about joining, Bain after leaving the governor's mansion No first of all we don't have a mansion but thank you It's a metaphor I know Not. A metaphor Excuse, me many many longtime, friends at. Bain capital people I know to be highly on oval folks and Mitt Romney hasn't been. There for decades Decades now I am I describe myself as a capitalist I'm not a market fundamentalist I don't think markets solve. Every problem just the right way but I do believe, in oportunity I think I think we need an economy that is expanding and expanding out. So it reaches people on the margins not just up so it's it's good. For people who already have wealth and have an just want more and I think there's a right way. And a, wrong, way, to do that and, I think. The impact investing is incredibly interesting and exciting way to participate in in in growth capitalism So no I don't I don't I don't buy that So by. The way I'm course I'm no longer interested at all and his answer. About Bain. Attacker because it's Blake just get it right I don't I did that once in a like a month after I moved here in a statement for the press in my name or something out there, about about respond to a Romney debate presidents all boy. I said,.
