"Randall's andorran bekker's both like the patients that are there are there for significant. They don't they. Don't have colds serious problems areas problems and you you go around and you watch like the parents or the grandparents or even the kids 'cause like the whole hospital. I mean the hospital itself is pretty damn amazing. I'm going to say so myself you walk through. And it's like very geared toward the lake. Little thing is built from the the day that they built. It was built intended for pediatrics to use that entire floor. Its entire building like multiple floors and yes floor is decorated differently. It's to stimulate different things and it's pretty amazing going there but what is even more amisi as just watching the staff and the family and all that stuff all have that kind of like this is an awful thing that we are going through. But for the most part most people were pretty dang positive and it wasn't depressing. Like i feel like you go into these. You can go into any hospital inpatient flow nursing home and kind of get a feeling of bloom. Yes glueck that's a good way but it was. It wasn't that way. And so i think a lot of i don't know i. Isn't there a study out there that like the more support. You have happier. You are the greater chance you have of actually beating your disease. I don't know about that. I know that there's been some studies that if you feel like you have a good amount of social support. You're less likely to get like colds and stuff like that. At least if you feel like you've adequate social support you're less likely to get certain illnesses but those are some old studies. I haven't really spent more time looking at. I don't know i would be interested. To see of outcomes differ based off of. I'll i'm sure attitude. Wouldn't you rather go for a tough time with a positive. If only were that easy to be like. I'm going to be positive. Notice it is and sometimes it's not right but it is. It is interesting to me. 'cause we've had several friends along the way and even us like we had a marker for downs on one of our children and we had i had Some koranic hemorrhage with two and significant to the extent that they thought that miscarrying so we we went through our own little things kinda pale in comparison. He really does. But we've had friends that have had worse. Diagnosis municipal is obviously not like a competent. The who's got the worst story olympics or anything like that but it is interesting to see like how people react and go through those tough times. Yeah that's good. That's a good point. And i think i don't know is it was nice that patient today and just seen how much the parents really cared for their child. How involved they were and that they viewed it as a blessing. So i didn't have that conversation with them. I could maybe impose that on there you know but the entire attitude was that they're here to take care of their daughter like they didn't see their daughter as some you know as a medical condition.

"Go they think of one more like then they produce less is debated yes and i hadn't even answered your first question but you just summed it up nicely the answer some you. What we found is that people did work more hours per day or more time per day As she said about eighteen percent on average and most of that increase was outside of normal working hours. Nine to five we would think of it as intuitively. So they're working earlier. Were there working later Now their performance was essentially flag. Maybe just a slight amount performance being the supervisors the the measure that. They've established with their supervisor their performance against their goal. It looks like in police. Company are working longer to meet their goals and they are meeting their goals in that sense. Performance did not was the same. It's just taking longer to do so And therefore productivity is we would think of it as economists. You know performance of output data. My inputs fell by ten to twenty percent ending on how you want to measure. It is fascinating so Some of this is very intuitive. So you say. Allies determinants of changes in productivity so employees. The children at home increased work hours more arctic plane for activity. Stand that That a large client productivity while the wife. Those big of a log company you bekker's so all of this be no is happening right so sue. What's the overall I want to go to conjecture makeover but let's conclusion that you have people home. Big distracted children at home. They get distracted. The million have actually they have more responsibility at home. Men uppity useless in general. You may be everything So we saw of know that initial conditions going in their data sort of consistent somewhat. Yes somewhat know. Yes when they're when what we found is that if the employees had children at home. And how do we measure that. By the way we knew. The company provides health insurance to its employees and we know if it provides it for children as well so that was kind of cool So if the employees had children at home their productivity fell more than if they didn't have children at home. That's not surprising however the effect was not larger for mothers professors. It was about the same separately. Women had lower had a larger decline in productivity than men. We're not quite sure why that is. Our speculation is that this is an asian country. Where many live in extended families and you know ran. Mother and father are there and so forth and that inet context that culture women are more likely to have to get involved in domestic.

Amazon's exclusive golden disc collection. We first learned about these sets earlier this year. Thanks to extremely early listing being published by amazon australia. Probably by mistake and just recently we had our first look at one of the sets through the usual leaky channels on monday amazon and has proposed open pre orders for the first golden disc. Release the two pack of road ranger and puffer road ranger is go bots character transplanted into some transformers universe or another and they re color insight retool of kingdom suffer puffer is the fan name or at least two varieties of suffer in pipes colors in mexico in europe and is represented here. They mild retooled kingdom pipes in reverse colours mind. You puffer is officially revealed before pipes so technically by eighty declared the redecorate puffer depending how pedantic you might feel about such things. The product copy for the set rationalizes. The name puffer by presenting the toy is representing and involuntary fusion of hover and pipes borrowing from some star trek voyager logic. We assume someone will be along with a later to murder puffer. In effort to restore hovering pipes of their original state's. The set of suffering rogue ranger went up for preorder. It just forty one ninety nine and is stone stock on amazon as of this recording. The delivery date is currently set for march of twenty twenty two. But it's likely these will be fulfilled much sooner than that given we have. Evidence manufacturing has already taken place from this. We expected to follow the galactic odyssey path and get a reveal every few weeks for the remaining three injuries. But just twenty four hours later. We already had the second to officially announced for transformers tuesday if we get the rest of them. I guess that will make nearly an entire week of transformers. Tuesday tuesday's rubio was jackpot. A retool of studio series eighty-six jazz which includes a redick. Oh of battle. Master directs don as action. Mr partner sites sites is now an axe. But i guess these things just sort of happened. Jackpot went up for preorder for twenty two ninety nine and with the same merch ship. Date we don't have any knowledge right now of production for jackpot having occurred yet. So it's not clear. How much sooner could actually get here. There was some concern on monday. Prior to jackpots reveal that jackpot might have been cancelled and replaced in the lineup when the coming soon image for the second reveal used a silhouette of wheel jack that didn't quite match up to any existing wheel jack toy suspicion abounded for a few hours leaning toward the possibility of a cyber trone box. Van retool earthrights wheel jack until it was finally discovered that the wheel gieco was consistent with one of the pieces of stock earthrights. Art closing the door on that speculation with jackpot revealed. We also now know. The order of the final two reveals next up should be tiger tron. Which from the inside info crowd we understand is likely an orangerie deco of wager. Kingdom tiger tron possibly with a new robot head based on the mutant head of the original tiger trying to cheat or bold much like was done with kingdom shadow panther. The fourth revealed should be terror store which has been described as a retool of kingdom air razor though. We don't have much detail on. Exactly what this retool will entail for my purposes at least this currently makes territory the most interesting part of the whole subline for now. We're just waiting for noon. Central time tomorrow to see whether we get the whole batch debuted this week or whether the pace will slow from here in other news to tell me mall has finally begun taking reservations for his lab. Victory saber they have the same. Final deadline has group holes. October giving their customers a little less than two weeks to sign on for the project. We don't believe to cars. Bekker numbers are being applied in real time but as of the time of this recording the campaign was that a little bit under ninety six hundred backers of the minimum eleven thousand required to move forward. On-scene good that. Even without the direct support from tacoma. Tony mall that minimum number would have been reached in time and now with the japanese bekker's we have a much stronger shot of reaching at least the first stretch gold here fourteen thousand to get the v.

"bekker" Discussed on This Week in Photo
"Bekker's if you do plan on working with these other types of applications then it could be a good idea to go ahead and invest in that you don't be system because those apps do play really well together if you plan on. Mostly just doing photo editing I would say the throw. This is a really good option out there. it's you know it it's a it's a full build. This is not like a light version of a photo editing application. It's you know it's very feature rich and if you know budget is a is a big issue. That's a big concern than i would say. Go with what you can afford. You know the most important things like using these tools right like you can get a great camera in your hands but if you're not out shooting day in and day out in developing your skills it great camera sitting on your shelf isn't gonna produce greek pictures. You know an inexpensive camera in your hands day in day out is going to produce much better pictures than the most expensive camera in the world sitting on your shelf so i would say the most important thing is like using the software getting creative like doing what you wanna do with it and you know sticking with the price point that works for you so i think affinity photo really is a good option for those beginners out there and i would say for most photo editors that's probably all they would need ever get. I would say that if you start with finnity photo and works for you. I wouldn't think of many applications in which you would need to move into photoshop to be able to do what you wanna do. That being said affinity photo does sport out as psd's so if you ever did wanna bring some of those files directly in photoshop. You'd be able to do that as well. Yeah yeah the other piece of that before we dive into. 'cause i wanna have you. I know you're cute up to show some stuff For we do that. Just get your thoughts on. You are an educator. Obviously you're an educator photographer. Re-texture comprising artists longlist titles. That go along with who air. Nasa's learn you know like we said at the beginning. Is photoshop learning. you know. that's what that's what the the name stands for. Are we gonna see additional oriels in there for photoshop competitors in your library like a you know affinity photo and the others as those apps get traction or you're going to stick with photoshop and be specific there so learn is my background is actually in photography and also in photoshop. So flirt is kind of like you know. Photography starts right so right right. Yeah yeah it's kind of like photo learn you know. That's that's where the name photoshop is. A part of that. Photography is a part of that and at this point i just learned to just be a word on its own so whatever we teach it it can totally come into the umbrella flirt so my goal as an educator and as a business owner is to go where the go where people go where the my students are going. You know if there is a massive shift towards other applications. I'm definitely happy to teach those. And we've taught different applications on flirt. We have an entire suite of light room tutorials on flooring. We even have guitar teaching how to composite images using mobile applications. We did a fantastic teacher with guest instructor swaps. She's on instagram at spokes s. w. o. p. e. s. checker. She's doing awesome stuff and she is editing from start to finish amazing composite photos using just her phone so we had her in the studio and she produced with us a full length tutorial on depositing using iphone apps so we are most interested in moving the future like wherever wherever the artist going. We're going to be there to provide education for them to have his fantastic. That is fantastic. See i was hoping you'd say that. Because i i need to see your take on stuff. Ever way of teaching them makes things feel accessible in doable versus complex in unknowable. I need that. Those skills applied to everything. So you wanna dive in. I know you're cute up to show these these applications. I'd love to see what you have planned for today. Let's do it. Let's do it so we're going to start off photoshop and we're going to. We're basically going to remove some objects in photoshop and then we're going to do the same thing in affinity photos you can get an idea of how these different programs work and this is just a. It's a very common scenario. Where you've got some distractions in your image and we want to get rid of them. So we're going to start off here in photoshop. So let's go ahead and grab a photoshop et. We've got a ballet dancer. Beautiful photograph here. This is from a stock image website called on splash. And i want to start about removing these light poles in the background you can see. We've got a feud light poles here in the background. And i've got this one here at the very top right as well. So what we're gonna do in photoshop. We're going to start by creating a new layer. Okay there we go down here on the bottom right and we're going to go to the spot. Healing brush tool brushed. Looks like a big band aid right over here on the left hand side and we wanna make sure that our type is set to content. Aware what that's gonna do. Search out for civil areas in our image and fill it in with the content. And we wanna make sure that the top we click on sample all layers. That allows me to do this on a new layer so this tool. It's actually incredibly easy to objects. Basically i just have to paint over the objects that i want to remove and photoshop is gonna look for similar areas in the image and fill it in with that content now. It doesn't always do a perfect job because it is one of these automatic type tools but you can always just paint over again now. We're gonna go over like easy use cases for this tool okay. Stuff in the background is relatively simple. And then here we get closer to our subject. We're to possibly use a couple of different tools depending on how this does so you can see. They're very quickly and easily. Let's just routes and stuff in the parking lot here to very quickly. An easy are able to remove these background pulls out granted there on a relatively simple background and the tool can do a good job in these simple situations but see how it does here when we get closer to the ballet dancers leg. I'm going try to remove that. Poll it did do it. It did reconstruct your leg but it didn't do a perfect job there. Okay not a perfect job obviously got a little bit of a weird looking leg there and that's just you know did preserve the line. That's fantastic but it doesn't know. Hey this is a leg and it should look like this. So what we're going to do in this case is i'm going to create a new layer really hit s for the clone stamp tool now the clone stamp a. We'll just make a direct copy of wherever you sample. And the benefits of the clone stamp tool is that it doesn't try to blend anything. There's no automatic software going on. It's just a direct copy. You have to paint in in sample a little bit like there's a little bit more manual work that goes into using the But with that manual work comes a little bit more control so know when we get to these tight areas we go. It makes a lot of sense to use the clone stamp tool. And you can see how close stamped away from the leg and the ballet Dressed there and then this area which is again pretty easy because it's not surrounded by anything important. I'll just go back with that spot. Healing brush tool painted over and remove that you make that look so easier. i love. you're.

So i you're probably wondering where should my podcast live. The great thing is is that business completely up to you. We highly recommend leaning in creating a dedicated show page. This will help with certain discovery as the product evolves. Keep in mind though. That pages looking to host podcast. Do you have to be ninety days old to start that process sooner than later.

You wanna hear from next. What topics are you most interested in. What surprise you in the last episode What did you like the best.

We're getting the actual person and that's allowing people to fall in love with them in ways. We really haven't been allowed to with women in sports very often in the past and when you have two million people following meghan re piano. You can't really deny the appeal right. You can't say people aren't interested you can I had a producer in radio. Who's no longer my producer. Who said people weren't interested in serena williams story of almost dying in childbirth.

"You're going to get the same compression rates. It doesn't really matter for tens of compression in which order you look at your bryant but if you're doing something like vector decision you might say. Hey maybe if. I up the the first vitamin jones and then dimension strong fifty five to sixty and then and then last stand i mentioned and i make that a single subgroup. That's going to be much easier to compress than to just take. Whatever dimensions happened to be together That i think that what i was maybe trying to get at is the when you're typically applying vector innovation. You're coming up with this map. Are you also considering the entirety of your data and using that to create your quantification scheme or is that unique to product quantification. It sounds like that may not be the victim versus. So i think now so imbo. In both cases you have to quantify everything the gain that you get with product is that you have this freedom of having subgroups. Okay right just doing like say more Just taking your holiday to sit as each entity has our full factory. You wouldn't really have have that okay. And so how do you characterize the advantages that you get with product quantification. So the nice thing. Is that because you have multiple subgroups in example that i was giving say four. You can think of it as you're expressing in that example you're expressing your vector as for numbers and those numbers can't take each two hundred and fifty dollars so in a sense you can think of having a combinatorial sense of clusters to compress your date. Because you're going to have two hundred fifty six times two hundred fifty six time two hundred this one hundred four times so that allows you to have on implicit kobuk. That is very very large. Which is good for a compression whereas if you were looking at the data as a single that than having. A book of that size might not be even physicals for example okay and then practically how this play out when you're using this to compress a narrow network efficiency and accuracy and all those kinds of things right. Let's get into the question of how we do it. I think that's That's a nice point. So like i was saying mean question is what are you into together so you say you have a matrix in in your near net. That is sized thousand thousand. You can choose to split this into subsets of for numbers. Each and then. Three dose of bekker's drunk means and then get a compression that they get representation. That is much more compressed. So the first thing that we do is that's what we call the paper permit premiered than quantities in you so that premiered step is.

The Economist: The Intelligence
Buy the way? Kyrgyzstans post-election chaos
"President whose whereabouts are unknown parliamentary offices overrun by protesters. Multiple opposition candidates vying to take the title of Prime Minister. After a national election confusion and chaos have. The former Soviet state of Kirghistan talked between Kazakhstan and China. Central Asia is a region ruled by strong men who typically get close to one hundred percent of the vote. So three years ago when in by Jane Bekov was elected Kurdistan's president uneventfully with fifty five percent was hailed as the region's first peaceful and democratic transfer of power look. Zone the but even then there were murmurs of electoral misconduct. This time the murmurs or a roar. Absence uncontested leadership has turned a country where both China and Russia have interests into a tinderbox. On Sunday K. Gestalt went to the polls to elect a new parliament and it was this event that ended up propelling, Stan about of political chaos because all of the opposition parties and also many of the people of kick stance they didn't accept the result join a Lewis Right about Central Asia for the economist and is based in Kazakhstan they started to come. In on Monday when a preliminary count showed that pro-presidential parties would be dominating parliamment and the opposition would have few seats. Book would be almost entirely shutout people took to the streets. Immediately thousands of people went to the main square in the capital Bishkek Sasi demonstrating against those results and when the police found to disperse, them will pitched battles between riot, police and protest. Of them, the protesters stormed the building housing, the president's office and Parliament and they were shouting that he should go and what is it that happened in the election that lead to such a reaction Without, that what? Protesters were absolutely furious about the I was that they believed that the results were skewed in favor of parties broadly loyal to the president. The second question that was really exercising these enraged protesters was how that was achieved and the allegation is that there was absolutely rampant vote buying I really have to say it was an open secret. In fact, it wasn't a secret that parties were going around paying people money to vote in their favour. We even know the going rate it was two thousand. Psalm, which is about twenty five dollars. Now, this is all alleged central investigation, but the evidence was was fairly credible that was circulating on social media. So when the results came in, that's why they took to the streets. What's the situation on the ground now who control? Well, events have moved in a very fluid manner fast moving because cake is Stan remains very much embroiled in this political turmoil, and really what we've seen forming is a power vacuum. The whereabouts of the president are actually unknown. By bekov says he's in control of the situation through spokespeople, but meanwhile, some political factions are at odds with other political factions. So all of those opposition forces and they're very disparate include nationalist liberal form as all kinds of different forces they are failing to find common cause. I mean we've seen mops from some actions basically aging in fisticuffs with other factions. The threat of violence has been hanging in the air in Kansas Stan and so what next how? How to unravel this? If protests have succeeded in having one of the main demands met the day after they stormed the presidential offices in parliament, the electoral commission announced that it would annul the results of those elections and they promised that there would be a rerun of the election. But of course, what's not clear with how can an election be now held in the current circumstances are power vacuum sporadic violence people out on the street so it's really unclear. If that's enough to satisfy the protesters and it's not only about the protesters. At this point, it's very much about the political factions, the clans, the people who are now jostling for power the prime minister who but bag Baranov resigned, and we have two rivals already claiming to be the prime minister. One of them is a rabble rousing nationalist former MP called Saudi Jackpot of who was actually sprung from jail during the unrest by his supporters and he had. Been in jail for kidnapping a local official during a previous bout of political unrest Mr Japan supporters have been aggressively sometimes violently trying to prevent rival factions from meeting besieging buildings in which they're meeting, throwing stones and scuffling with rivals. Basically, what happens next is a big question. It's a very unpredictable, very chaotic and potentially dangerous situation and given all that chaos and the potential for danger here. Do you do you think this has an international dimension to it? Outside powers are expressing deep concern over the situation in Kingston. On the one hand, we have China with which is Stan shares border and China has expressed concern and is clearly alarmed at reports that protesters are targeting Chinese own business interests in the country. Specifically, all my said operated by Chinese companies, and then on the other side, we have Russia, which is obviously stands former colonial power. Russia has a military base in Stan and it really doesn't like to see popular uprisings in what it considers to be its own. Geopolitical backyard, and this is of particular concern at this point in time because Russia has been looking on with great alarm at protests in Belarus on the other side of the former Soviet Union where protesters have a weeks now been coming out against the results of presidential elections indeed this week the Kremlin has started to make no secret of is concerned about events in is Stan and as basically saying that it's descending into chaos and that Moscow has obligations under a security treaty to prevent the situation from breaking down. From breaking down further I mean how how bad could this if this carries on? The confusion that Stan covertly faces may in the end how President Jiang Becker to hang onto power although it's very, very clear that at this point, he is not going to get the pliant parliament that he was hoping to get out of this election. He has three years left in office. Presidents can only serve a single term that's under a system introduced to prevent power grabs books. It's important to remember that is people have thrown two presidents in the past. So a suggestion Bekker's position is very shaky and what is really clear is the longer the power vacuum that we're currently seeing a stand remains unresolved the more likely it becomes that violence will be used to resolve it. Thanks very much for joining US join us. Thank you very much.

Saying like bt is a one-size-fits-all turns out right because it is brand is called wants is. The way is this program to stop beauty. So this is just so. You're thinking of Patrick Tar beauty. And Onto Patrick. And you know it says on this podcast. Confuse those two people I am not how? How dare I say moment? Names of very similar. I'm Marilyn up by twenty ounces. Early sat in a restaurant with two that you would I know often jess and Her friend who worked for LEMAIRE and they were. Running an event with Patrick tar and they were talking about Oh.

Okay so skin, cal skincare, but definitely make up remover. I think you have indicated this. Yeah they. Edged into skin care, but it was with an eye makeup removal rather than clothing, which is in an interesting extension of the cleansing category as the crossover between cleansing a makeup. Cleanser it's makeup remover. I'm on the fence about you need. Make remove I guess if you wearing a lot of makeup, you do it. These I always find those mists and the makeup remover sprays fascinating how they work I don't stand there. Witchcraft you spray on in your whole face melts off like Indiana. Jones like death becomes her. It's totally mad. The interest to see what else is coming. The packaging is gorgeous. It's all is bright metallic read. It reminds me a little bit of. So. Body sprays from the ninety S. Yes, I remember. Like a metallic red spotty red packaging. That looks really cool. We'll see welcome to come I did a bit of background research on this, and it's because I always brand. That's come from Sephora like Marc Jacobs yet. Betty itself actually. And it's not. It's coming from an incubation group called luxury brand partners, and a also look after Smith and colts. That's where it's myth and cult came from the nail Polish brand, and they were the money behind Becker before they sold Bekker's trae lording. Yes, so CEO was a form of Becca CEO. So. They've got a lot of. Beauty expertise in the gang. Interesting an interesting. Yeah it's going straight into Sephora and it's not a Sephora incubated. Brandon's competes brand. One come from luxury brand partners, so yes, since we get more news on one size, we'll let you know and then the other news, which is hot off the presses Hof. scold inch. Is Fantasy.

July thirty first on skin dot com, even going on anti-beauty is is entirely its own thing. While I kind of like the savage frontier. The extensions like it's going to be like in separating. What's interesting? Really really interesting I'm curious as to see how that's going to go i. don't know what the product is going to be. It's literally just dropped as a logo an. Yes, so no more will no more and the last piece of Christmas. News we want to mention is. We had a big pre compensation. We had a meeting about the yes. About this one. I think it's an important piece of news share. Without necessarily getting into our personal thoughts and feelings on it, because we have and that's for another time. MORPHE- have ended their relationship with Jeffrey medics, which is huge news huge, yeah! I think that's going to be. Lots of people talking about your Fisher. Of. Discussion and debate as to what his involvement was with Morpheus. A company is whether or not he owned of more viewers investors like the. It was quite unclench. But what we do for sure is. He is a massive massive revenue driver form OFI, so it's a huge step for them to terminate that relationship and out that of his supply chain, so think is, it's jeopardy. Saw Cosmetics Company.

Thanks so much for joining me again. Well thank you so much for having me always a pleasure to visit with you. Thank you sir. So Scott. You're doing on. I really cool things and and before we get into the meat and bones of today's interview is I do WanNa Park at the work you've been doing with your podcast uncast. Can you share a little bit more about it and why you guys started. There was sure so the core that we do. At bekker's healthcare has two parts of it. Our digital media efforts in our big conferences and events around three or four core core sectors and healthcare hospital systems health. It surgeries others is by so to get your of course podcasts. The podcasts are sort of a fascinating to me. It on. They're more sort of a as you know a magnificent way to just visit with interesting people people in a format you might not otherwise get to visit with them in and so yes people listen to them but the great pleasure for me is getting talk up to a whole range of leaders and people in all aspects of life. I mean yesterday at a podcast with a woman physician who's Muslim background. Speaking about being a Muslim docker America two weeks ago I spoke with Jean Woods. The CEO of Atrium health also former chair of the HA and one of the great growing systems. Those are the country. Here's get a chance to visit with magnificent group at different people and twelve chance to visit with interesting people. I tend to enjoy people. So that's that's what I love most about the podcasting and then people listening to them. It's more of a kind activity tool and a way to visit with people and if people visit in the conversations or anything else I think it's great and you're so right about that right. I mean the the ability to connect with others. That are doing great things a while. Back AGO folks ahead Scott on the podcast. He was At the very beginning actually and for those that have been listening for quite some time. You know that Scott was is one of the key people that inspired me to do my podcast so awesome to see him doing his his podcast. Now it is a great way to visit with others. And if you haven't but listen to that first episode with Scott It's episode number five. You GotTa Outcomes Rocket Dot Health type and Scott Becker. You'll you'll see where we focused on being patient centric and building outstanding teams which is something that Scott does so well and and and Scott. What's inspiring your work today? I I would say really two things inspire what I see. One is with all the talk about healthcare which you are seeing is tremendous advances in some cure for certain diseases. So oncology sort of almost didn't make that much progress for a long time in certain kinds of oncology and now making crazy progress so that inspires me just watching those things inspires me. I don't have anything to do with it. But they inspire me and then the other thing that spires ars me just you know working with magnificent people in visiting with people and hearing their stories and seeing what they're doing it so those are the two things that sort of excite me the great advances out there all all the negative talk in to just talking to people Scott and I've been to to your meetings and there are a lot of. I always connect with so many great people people to your point. You know the speakers and the keynotes are always super entertaining. What would you say makes what Bekker's offers different than what's out there? We're trying to is be queer concise fast moving and try and be very clear about our goal to teach people and entertain and the core of what we do is building everything we do around the core audience the core participants in the sector. So if you're looking at are hostile meetings it's really built around the jets built around three hundred great hostile leaders. It's not built around us. It's built around the core audience. The cord leadership in our we were in four different areas health. It also some surgery centers in spine but dissimilar a similar rasping everything. We're really built around the audience. Not around us and we try and teach entertain in clear concise simple content. And we've got a great team that implemented we've got great editorial team a Great Jenner team great leadership and Business Valentin which you can't do anything without those so it's it's a mix of things that we try and do to make work well and and it's a constantly changing environment but we've got a great team and we try and save very close to the audience really counts. That really. Is the driver behind everything we do. Love it serving bring. Your audience is super important. And it's hard to do in easy to be distracted. Can you share what you do to stay hyper focused on your audience against well. It is a is a great question. We have very very clear goals and directives on how we try and build everything that we do. And how now it's built to be audience centric versus vendor centric. And they're two very different things and we focus. I making sure our team and our audience dance is well taken care of we those things then things seem to work out well and it just a constant clarity of focus on what really counts. And we've got you know we've a few constituents. We have to take care of the audience. First and foremost doing short commercial interest. It makes sense for them and obviously our speakers speakers in our team are the other parts of that sort of stool love it. How about on the law side of things? You're still a practicing partner at at McGuire. Woods anything that you WANNA share to the listeners. That that are thinking about their their Legal Affairs and the things that they do there air. Anyone WANNA share. Yeah no it's. It's a great question so I've struggled to forever in one of them really out of the other. All my work has been in healthcare for thirty years. Now it's started as a law career and then built this media business almost by accident but grew into serious company money due to great leadership of our team. There are editorial team are Jonah deem our our business team just call and everybody else the On the law side ride the biggest congressman I've had is pretty similar built in its practice but to do that and build a practice in healthcare and then insert your center selfless equity. I was able to early on start to build great teams and everything that one dozen life. Today it requires great teams so the thing most of proud of him most excited about at the law firm is a team I built in the number of people there that have become partner in the firm that were under my mentorship. It's our ship is a whole cadre of people that really were part of my team originally and now grown to be leaders in the firm partners in the firm and one of which is now the cheer of our national healthcare practice but just a great group of people from you know give shots to all them you know people like Melissa. Holly Barks Howen Gretchen amber in more and more and And and others that really came up under in with me and Jeff cockrel perspective. Some practice that came along with me now of largely built greater backs may but was just a magnificent experience.

We have tells us that this is not a choice, you are the gender. And sometimes it doesn't match you genitals to if a kid says they're transgender. What should you do? Well, let you explore who they are. If they want the hair or let it grow out, that's fine. And if they're about to puberty, so the adult about puberty blockers and three if you decide to change you body with homeowners and surgery will you regret it the best evidence? We have says that very few people regret getting surgery or taking homes. There is one big risk though. And that's t Phillipi particularly for canes who go straight from puberty blockers to home owns. Still though while they might be some risks with changing body with home owns scalpels 's something much scarier is looming over transgender, folks.

It's nine times higher. He's cocoa. Maya the transgender population has the highest rate of suicide attempts of in the demographic in the United States. And what we're learning. Now is that being transgender in itself doesn't seem to be bad for your mental health? Tens out what is bad via mental health is the way trans people are often treated, they get bullied kicked out of their home and attacked and the science is telling us that this mistreatment. That's the biggest problem for transgender. People. It's not homeowners or surgery. Not surprisingly when people don't get treated like garbage and makes a big difference. I think the best thing about transition was having my family and friends support me all the way through it. And having my priest from the small town, Texas, write me a letter about how brave I was and say, I was always welcome in church. Yes. Hormones are important and awesome.

So recently, I met up with few of my extraordinary colleagues to talk about how passions let us to where we on now hosting podcasts in the studio. We have Eric Eddings co host the not what's up and host of startup. Lisa chow. Hello. I was especially curious about leases career pot. So I asked her a question that ended up being kind of revealing. Lisa. What would you tell you'll youngest south when you starting out your career? What are you tell my younger self? You know, it's funny because when I saw when I became a journalist I feel like I went in with my eyes wide open because I graduated and I was an applied. Math major and I had really investigated all different types of jobs to go into. I actually did forty informational interviews. Yeah. With different alumni from my college from accounting to investment banking consulting, the UN working at the State Department being a teacher just a whole range of careers. And then the journalists like connected most to. Yeah. I really liked the journalist I talked to. And then one guy was just, you know, hey, you know, I can call an editor that I worked with twenty years ago to see if you would be willing to offer you a job and he did that. And then I went up to New Hampshire. The job was at a small newspaper New Hampshire, and I never written an article basically for my college newspaper or anything like that. And I went up in interviewed with him. And he gave me the job. Yeah. What was the fest article you wrote full them? Oh, jeez. It was probably about some board meeting because I was covering six towns in New Hampshire and Maine, and the I think I probably went to a meeting and covered a traffic light. So you a debate on whether we should put a traffic light at this intersection. And it was a community that had very few traffic lights. So it was incredibly contentious. I mean, what are you thinking at that point? Yeah. No. It was crazy. I loved it. I don't know. It's just like the small gears in public discourse. It was fascinating to me. It was it was very strange. I mean, I was probably was the only Asian within a thirty mile radius. But yeah, I loved it. I loved it. It was crazy. I was just felt like I was in a foreign land. But I was just in Hampshire. So what would you tell your youngest self than I think, I would just say enjoys a ride. It's exciting. Fun. And you're gonna learn a ton. That's the thing as journalists. It's like you learn so much. It's like you have the luxury to ask any question. You want of anyone? That's crazy. It's amazing. Eric has happened to you. Somewhat at you like, wow, I get us this question. Yes. We had lavar Burton on the show, and he told us he was proud of us, and like that was probably one of best career moments of my life. And I don't know lavar Burton that will you know. I mean, I like to think we know each other now. Clearly. But to be in a situation where I get to talk to someone who I have lived up to into have that person. Not only appreciate that interaction.

Colton Underwood Is the Next Bachelor: 'Third Time's the Charm'
"Report. So they made the big announcement. I called it the cold and Underwood was going to be the bet did I call it a Jakarta, I called you want to Jason. And I said, no because I wanted to Jason why don't we have Colton view the bachelor. Yeah. And then it dawned on me Colton is the right. So anyway, go ahead. What are you? Okay. So third time's a charm, or at least that's what Colton Underwood's thinking because he was on the season. So for people that don't know Colton under one was on bekker's that season of the bachelorette, then he was on this season of bachelor in paradise. Okay. So now, he's going to be the bachelor. So his third time going for love it ended last night with him and Tian bachelor in paradise. And then boom this morning. He was announced as the bachelor, but bachelor nation is V upset about this like they are. Well, not happy. They're saying like we wanted to look gave us Nick we wanted Peter. You gave us Ari. We Jason are Blake you gave us Colton. So anyways, they're not how many not having it. No. But the two things that I'm hoping the ABC doesn't do. I'm begging them to end this TES storyline. I'm so over it if they bring her back to the mansion, I literally will pull my hair like, I can't tell you that you might come back as a contestant if she does I'm out. I can't the storyline is done for me. And then the second thing that I'm hoping that they don't do is. The big thing with Colton is. He's a virgin, yes. He's a virgin, I think it's amazing. And I hope that they don't make it seem like this big like kind of pokey funny thing throughout the season. You know mistake everyone's talking about the fancy Swedes like, oh, you know, making a big deal about it. And I'm hoping that they don't make a big deal about his issues. I wonder and I am asking you this as a member of that nation. Do you think the fact that he is a virgin was one of the determining factors for ABC to why they wanted him to be the bachelor, I think so and only because of this reason there's only been too successful. Bachelor men that have stayed with the women's Sean Lowe being one of them shaima was the Borsen Ryan. Well, she was the bachelorette. Sean Lowe was the born again virgin, so people are kind of like kind of in the same boat as Sean Lowe and hoping that this season ends like him choosing wiping them ending together. Yeah. Totally seriously. Let me see. I don't want you to pull your hair out. So let's see if ABC is
Naked bird watching and a book?
"Last two hours. We're talking with Olaf Danielson on Skype high Olaf how're you doing pretty well pretty well, you're dressed. I'm glad to see that. I mean, appreciate that. Know they'd free. We see assured who knows from the waist down. We, we understand that you like to go birding and we understand that you'd like to do it in the buff nude nude birding. Is that correct? Is correct. Yes. Now, why is that. Well, you know, I can get into the philosophical reasons, but the practicality of it all with sort of an odd, not really a bet, but a an encouragement from my publisher went one day when I was sitting in her office and she asked me what I thought of this bigger movie that was out about five years ago. And I said, well, that's all fine and dandy, but could he see seven hundred forty nine species naked. And then she sort of wrote out a draft contract for a book project and sort of slipped my way. And I looked at her confused and says, I want you to go do a book on this and and spend the next year seeing how many species of birds you can get while you're naked, things people do for their publicist. Yeah, yeah, I'm not quite sure I should have said yes to that, but it was fun and interesting and I met a lot of interesting people. It had some interesting adventures along the way, and that's what life is about. I bet. And we'll find out just a couple of seconds about that. But I think you know, for me. I wouldn't want to do. I just don't want to be in nature naked because I frankly, it birds love worms. Right? I I'm just a little afraid we didn't. You have any concern about that at all? Well, not that particularly, there are some other more pressing concerns. Mostly bugs. Cold came to mind or the authorities such as the police, of course, might be a bit of an issue and. You know, I sort of, you know, didn't really worry about my mother thought or my wife thought, but you know, there's a lot of different things you have to worry about. You know, I didn't really look at any. You know, the birds actually came that close thankfully. But what about you know? You said you didn't care about your mother, you know, but what about other people? Aren't there other people out and about? Well, a, it's sort of interesting of what tolerance people have, especially west coast now, I wouldn't say it's a different set of people in certain other parts of America, but they're a little more tolerant of finding the chance encounter of a naked guy on on a trail in the national forest. But you know, I sort of decided, you know, when I first started this, I said, well, there's a lot of places in America that people go naked at, and I started with their and then sort of, you know, to get up better birding, total ahead to kinda get out of the the naturist clubs and sort of get to more interesting venues. Which did involve some some risk for me in getting in trouble, but it all worked out and I didn't get arrested despite a couple of encounters that might have an I didn't get eaten by anything. I did get chased by a bear on July fourth, in two thousand thirteen actually into enough a Hindu wedding photography outing. They're taking wedding pictures for a Hindu wedding. When this bear was hot on my tail, which was actually good because of all the people yelled bear bear of an affair stop. And I kinda snuck around in my car which when I came there was nobody at the the parking spot in Yellowstone, but. Things did happen, did you do this alone? Sometimes a lot of the places I went to would require spousal participation, especially in some of the the. Kolding optional clubs that I that I went to. Sometimes I would bring my friend friend of mine with his another burder. Sometimes he would take off his duds to sometimes he would trail back on the trail and was sort of my, you know if somebody came bouncing up the trail behind me, he would start going into a coughing fit your start talking to them and would give me some time to whip out a a kind of the sorry, pareo wrap that I carried in my my little water pouch that I had with so I could pull out and get some decency so to speak and not getting the trouble because that's that looks normal wok guy walking around with the sorry naked at a sorry. I kind of got some votes, especially or the ones that I would admit we are with Olaf Daniel sit. He's an

"Hours of my life last night i do want to tell you i fast forward through part of it last night it was the part where they were singing did you really because i will tell you that came at the request of my husband he and he loves he doesn't care like he's he likes to watch it he also is like on his phone while he's watching it's very relaxing viewing for us like we put the kids down this is what we do on monday nights and and he just was like can you please fast forward through this part and i said yes i can i just didn't want to watch them saying and i have to tell you i was so just horrified slash by what was going on with wayne newton i didn't even know what is he dead or alive i just want you to all the conversations that were happening in your household were mimicked in mind alexis laugh i'd is sitting there her a picture we were i just oh he's he shouldn't he needs to stop with a one hundred percents because he is pulled his face so much that he can barely speak it's not it's not good he was good looking man i know his eyes are permanently open which makes him look very core and then han and then his teeth are like gallatin teeth we're also where the dead thing comes in because it's just an example of like oh wayne just love what god gave you and just hold onto it didn't his wife recoil away from him when he was in levy seeing mistake was not so good when he was shane because he can't call i know this let us be a cautionary tale to all of us out there particularly just like dipping their toes into the world of the pressures of antiaging trying to think that they keep up i called i called the kenny rogers so far you can't lose your mouth or your eyes at bruce jenner you know it was that i mean not to like he underwent that really terrible plastic surgery that he you know and obviously had a lot of other insecurities going on in like things going on inside but you just have to be so careful especially as many don't have hair to cover it up okay so anyway it was fun i liked i did like the episode last night although i'm i always telling don in the break i'm really over the two on one dates it's just like extensively manufactured and like it's like we're going to have a really great day with two people who hate each other's is what bekker's saying i just wanna have fun and chill and relax okay you're in the middle of a desert on a weird bed with two men who despise each other you tell me how this is going to be fun and relaxing never going to happen it's drama girls tension okay let's talk about speaking of relationships nicole kidman and keith urban relationship this is interesting i wanted to bring this to you guys because nicole kidman was talking to parade magazine and now this quotas being picked up all over the place and people wonder about their relationship they just celebrated their twelfth wedding anniversary and they seem to be very much in love they seem to be very much on the same page and like they really enjoy their marriage and she says we've never texted you said we talk all the time and we facetime but we just don't taxed because i feel like taxation can be misrepresentative at times yeah oh wow that was interesting she said i've had that thing where i reread text this is cole kidman and i'm like what does that mean and then i read it to somebody and go can you interpret that i don't want that between my lover and i and she says this is what they do we do voice to voice or skin to skin as we always say ooh it works somethings working i i really think that it is not a bad thing to think about that you know reducing the texting because if you can think about that in your relationships or even your friends there is certainly something that's lost in translation it's the same with email at work where sometimes you're like oh i don't really get that person's tone and and it can just be odd to misread easily can't hear inflection lexin i've said that for years.
Why Democrats are worried about Tuesday's California primaries
"Okay the reality stars meeting with the president is the culmination of months of behind the scenes lobbying to get this case before president trump she is also pushing for broader prison reform the white house is now reportedly reviewing johnson's case democrats have high hopes to take control of the house of representatives in the midterms but to do it they need almost every corner of california the parties even targeted orange county at one time republican stronghold one by hillary clinton in two thousand sixteen the big prize there would be toppling fifteen term republican incumbent dana rohrabacher but california has this unusual to tear primary system and that along with an unusually crowded field of democratic candidates could dash the party's hopes in next week's primary here's npr's jaffe dana rohrabacher tout's his proud past as a speechwriter for ronald reagan and toes the conservative line on many issues legal immigration for one here he is addressing the huntington beach city council i would suggest that those were advocating sanctuary cities or sanctuary state are betraying the american people some of rohrabacher's other positions however have made him seem vulnerable even to fellow publican's he voted against both the gop tax cut and the spending bill he recently lost some business support when he said that no one should have to sell their home to someone who's gay the most controversial is his long support for better relations with russia and meeting with close associates of latimer putin so recently democratic voters crowded into a synagogue and robotics district eager to check out the candidates vying to replace him susan becker knew she was looking for support the person who is most likely to win just a shame that there were so many democrats running because we're going to split the vote here's why bekker's worried california's primary system quits all the candidates on one ballot and sends the top two finishers onto november regardless of party but in their enthusiasm to oppose rohrabacher and donald trump eight democrats signed up making it hard for any candidate to consolidate support that's why michael kodak dropped out though his name is still on the ballot we have to be really smart about the math when candidacy that the math is getting crowded we have to make responsible decisions on behalf of the community on behalf of the party.
