Seattle to open more permanent COVID-19 vaccination sites in Rainier Beach, West Seattle, Lumen Field Event Center
"Seattle is setting up permanent mass vaccination sites at the lumine field events center also in rainier beach and west seattle seattle mayor. Jenny durkan says the expansion will reach thousands more vulnerable residents each week and thousands more with enough supplies. And i spoke with mayor durkan about this expansion and why it is so needed here. Despite the fact that seattle was the first to kind of experienced both hospitalization deaths of covid because of the hard work sacrifices that the businesses and residents have made we have for the top thirty cities or so in america the lowest level of disease in hospitalization and part of the reason for that is. We're able to stand up just a first in class testing system. We wanna first in class vaccination system and so we're building the infrastructure to make permanent some of our vaccinations sites and to be able to be one of the first cities in the country to vaccinate all of its residents that need to be vaccinated and of course it requires us to get a steady dose of the vaccines. But it's looking like we will in some very excited. They will make a couple of our vaccination sites permanent We'll stand up a mass vaccination site and we'll open additional sites as time permits well. We're the new mass vaccination site you're talking about coming online. The new the new mass vaccination side is going to be what's now called. Bloomfield used to be centurylink people. Think of where the seahawks play. And how about what's going to be going on at the rainier beach and west seattle facilities those way. We'll make the rainier beach and west seattle facilities permanent vaccine sites It's incredibly important just to be able to reach all parts of our community particularly those who've been hardest hit by the virus and we know clearly from the data that Our communities of color in particular have been hit by cove not just the health impacts but the economic impact and the health impacts have been significantly disproportionate. So i'm very excited. We'll be able to keep that rear beach Facility open and have it as a permanent vaccine location and also very excited that we can keep west seattle open because as you know not only are the number of underserved communities in that area but it also because the west seattle bridge it's access to other parts of the city has been significantly diminished. So we've got to bring the vaccine to the people that need it absolutely. You mentioned the communities of color. Do you know what the vaccination rates are looking like when it comes to inoculating these communities much more percentage of the population. Getting the disease and much lower portion. Actually getting the vaccines. That's why the city of seattle has stepped up and are are. We are really providing that equity lens or vaccinations and really proud of seattle fire department. And all the work. They've done but very proud of the community based organizations who have stood up helped us implement a program so that we've been able to do pop up clinics in the communities for those who've been under served and seventy percent of the vaccinations that we've been able to deliver have been to buy pock community. We're really pushing with our community. Based partners to get those people who might not have access to healthcare. They might be hesitant to get the vaccine or have language barriers and by doing that. We're we're reaching the people that that are most vulnerable and need the vaccine. Will you mentioned hesitancy in the groups that you've had discussions with we've heard a lot about this certain communities of color just being simply afraid to get given the us history and medical practices here in our country. But do you really think it's an issue or are we just talking about lack of access to the vaccine. So i think it is both i think right now because we are in the period where they're scarcity. We're working hard to make sure that we get the shots arms and and and getting them to the right people so using the lens for that soon. I think we will have enough vaccine to deliver. And then we'll have to shift to try to get people who would be hesitant to come. You have to remember that. For the last four years the federal government waged war against are immigrants and refugees. It's hard to then turn on a dime and tell them they can now trust government. And so that's why it's very important to have community based partners that people that speak the language or that are trusted messengers and has the new mapping tool created by the university of washington helped you achieve these goals or is there something more that can better serve these bypass communities the tool has been very helpful because it gives us the actual data showing Vice zip code where the disease is most prevalent and so we can see using that tool that we have not been able to reach some of the communities most at risk for the disease that helps us target zip codes but we still need the community based partners who can work with people that they trust to get them to the vaccine sites.

"That theater owner. The can't remember the name of the theater on market street there. But graham also had appar- awhile and you know the next night. Bloomfield shows up at the theater in his slippers. Right but with this guy our yeah and plays a great set but doing had to introduce him audience. 'cause that's how bad the gotten nobody. There knew who this weird looking guy with all the hair was but once they heard him play they realized. Oh yeah yeah and ready to do it and one incident. You don't talk about. But but according to another interview. I read recently with bloomfield. Donut actually approached him about playing on The blood on the tracks album and bloomfield just couldn't connect with him. He felt like dylan was too much of a rockstar and there was too much of a wall and he didn't understand the new music any more than he had understood the stuff on highway. Sixty one so you know. Probably afraid of being asked to be in dylan's tour ban because he didn't have one at that point yup and and so you know it's another you know what if but it's when you when you said that your response to bloomfield saying i wanna produce another great album but i can't was my first thought was what if somebody great you know one of his peers or somebody even slightly better than him like dylan or cooper clapton. It's showed up and said hey man. I really need you on this. But as it turns out dylan try and it just couldn't come together. And so i mean i think you know summing up though it's easy for us who never made any great music too tight about bloomfield's miss opportunities or bemoaned albacete did make. I think the more important thing is to treasure what he did give us which is a pretty respectable body of work and the other artists that he inspired with. That work are endless. I mean the guy basically rock guitar. Yeah yeah out of blues but he also like adding other metals to an ally to make the finished product stronger he. He gave it something that people could carry on without being. You know like these endless british blues bands were happening in the early seventies. You know that was just imitation. 'field gave electric guitars a gift of a new way of approaching music and Poaching rock guitar and taking it out and lose but they very very important. Yeah and smart ones do that. Yeah and without bloomfield. Now eric clapton. No peter green dwayne allman etc etc etc. You know maybe dwayne but none of the well. We could argue that endlessly but Anyway it's been fun talking about michael bloomfield with you head and look forward to talking about the second volume of history of rock and roll and kost..

"Pretty heavily. Yeah and your account of his lifestyle in mill valley it's not as dire as some rockstar falls. I mean partly because of his income from his record royalties but also because of his trust fund. Which every few months. He will get a fairly sizable check from his family. Family trust allowed him to live. You know basically middle class lifestyle of reading novels all day watching. Tv is guitar in the evening. If he wanted to and he you his ex wife was living with him and he had friends living with them so he had kind of sort of the king of court and it doesn't sound that bad. There's this guy named dan mccloskey i. I knew He was a friend of john ward And he was. You know this this kind of never. She very earnest a guy who was A stereo equipment salesman. He had to see michael one time and they got the talk. He's you know. I've got any tarp. Dan i wish i could learn how to play guitar in the way you do. Just because it seems to be more. Like what i wanna do. I'm a big lou's fag. Lots of records at home and and michelson. Well you know. Come on up to the house. I mean you live here in oakland. Come on over the middle. Golly can we can just like jamming the living room. Dan he goes well. I mean come on over so he did and size plan rhythm he says. Go ahead play lead dan. He's like. Oh i don't do it come on so did and he was terrible and michael then says okay you play really. Let me show you something. And he did and he sort of took the ideas that dante had played and turn them into michael bloomfield music. He says now it's your turn and but looking at his fingers and he went. Yeah okay. I see so. He executed something. There was a lot closer to it. Michael had done and then it just got fluid and at the end mike led to do something else or so these. I'm going to throw you out. I want you to come back a lot of fun. And then he was like. Wow just imagine that this guy is this major rockstar enjoyed playing with me so he did come back a couple more times and eventually he did a long interview with him on the radio and that was kinda guy michael was i. I ran into him. I did was. I ran into him at a record store Village music the world's greatest record.

"Well yeah i mean and he never really took responsibility for having created this monster and he never came up with an acceptable replacement for even more importantly so he. You know he hit. He'd made this thing and it was gonna follow him around forever unless he replaced it with something else which he did. Yeah and he nick. Gravity's do a pair of albums for columbia eighties. Might labors and a live album live at. The fillmore was bloomfield. That's got some great work. I mean blues on the west side. That's just got an incredible guitar solo and and my labors if you like revenue dis And he's a good songwriter. But my favorite people in this whole story is a a really deeply soho man. And he's moral and he's got just integrity. The was who is a gifted songwriter. Great songs for tennis. Stop on many others and the paul butterfield. Blues songs blue ban signature song born in chicago. I for that for grabbing eighties greg composition. But be that as made those albums were pretty clearly contract fillers from bloomfield's perspective and a way to get out of the rockstar machinery. And there was that other one. It's not killing me which is not good. That's just awful but you know. He owed them albums so he gave them albums. And what are they gonna do. I mean here's here's a piece of product that you can put the name of michael bloomfield on and somebody's going to buy it 'cause they're all hoping that you know the life changing guitar. Solo is going to be on this record. it's not but Hey columbia's fault yeah. And and and i really wonder if there wasn't element of bloomfield put in his career to sleep with that album. Really didn't want to be a rockstar anymore. So yeah i think so. Time has the came out. He he was he was palling into the you know hanging out at home mode pretty heavily.

"Because there's a quick drive into the city you know. It's like thirty minutes including time to park so he was a lot more amenable to that. I thought it was east and he was. He was awake for five days straight or something. That's what they say on the record. Anyway that he collapsed took was hospitalized because he just couldn't sleep on the road that would make sense. That would make sense. I it makes sense. He would fly to new york to recreate a project he wasn't really into but there's probably money coming in from i remember was it cooper. Bloop said he walked into the record store and just up coast to copy. Yeah a super session flying across the counters and he went and that response always for career like out cooper. He's not ashamed to admit that that's what he was a talented man but also had assigned the bottom line. I mean i. It's interesting that he realized that there were going to be repercussions of that album being more successful than i mean wildly successful beyond their while streams right. That wasn't the idea. The idea was just to you. Know help him. And michael wood their problems with columbia. Yeah i think. I think also an element of how do i get something out of bloomfield. I mean i feel like cooper really felt that that there was a risk of bloomfield's talents going to waste and and what's the easiest thing we can most low key easiest thing we can get him into and and craig good work and you know. I think the live adventures is quite enjoyable. The rhythm section's pretty weak. But you know the version of the fifty ninth street bridge song. Which paul simon added background vocals to in the studio later. That's pretty powerful stuff. And i feel like deep. Purple was listening closely to this combination of loud screaming lead guitar and heavy organ and that the sound it wasn't just a one offer a dead end. I mean this is something that had a huge influence on rock and roll. People were paying attention but once again flakes. After one day and cooper again scores he gets off and bishop but he also gets carlos santana to play live and the santana portions album perfect. It's a pretty good record for jam record i. It's been so long. I may not have made it through both l. Both records on that set because my interest was very definitely elsewhere back. Then yeah. I have heard the edits that Cooper did on the box set and you know they're okay for jamming but is another time and place to comment on that and purple at all. Well semi was a missed missed out there. Although again i can certainly see not being in deep purple date. They start a whole strange strand of rock and roll Prog rock and and leads into the whole elves in which is a school that it's pretty silly but a lot of kids have had a lot of fun with anyway back to bloomfield cooper. This album get norman rockwell to paint their portrait on the cover so there's bloomfield sits down for that and i mean that's the top starship right there. Oh yeah but everybody was doing it. So why not. Yeah it's funny. That bloomfield is so tortured by this stuff and yet he keeps going back for bites from the goal. You know the poisoned apple. Or whatever i know i mean he doesn't..

"Picking betar's So doing knew that that that shortcoming but they talked they're both really smart guys and they had this long conversation and bluefield walked away like well. Gee you know. He's not as bad as i thought he was. He he probably conceived to coming from new york. You know the the next big thing out of new york as you know once again. Why has jewish kid But of course mike was an antenna. Were up and of course. He wanted to go into battle with this guy. But the guy wasn't doing that i it was. It was like you know some sort of martial art where you just sidestep. And then once they got past that they turned out to really like each other. Move for both of them. Yeah as it turns out that they end up hanging out for hours and then when bloomfield finally ceased still play. He's blown away at dylan's building command attention and i don't think you got what about. Yeah that it was about the the songs it'd be a fairly basic player in purely musical terms and still be damned if yes. And that's sort of a lesson that dylan imposes on bloomfield when he gives them a call and nineteen sixty five and says. Hey i'm gonna cut some records. I'd like you to play. But he says. I don't want any of that. Bb king shed. Yeah well that was what he said when he got when michael got studio but i mean michael was just amazed at you know. Doing even knew how to find him. Wasn't that hard. I mean doing manager. Albert grossman was from chicago from the folk scene. Ran folk clubs so naturally he knew how to get ahold of the bloomfield. Michael was please. Oh look somebody watching plans record and you know by that time dealing with the stars so like a real opportunity. Yeah and so bloomfield dylan picks up bloomfield at the train station in new york city and takes out to woodstock. And what's the scene like a that bloomfield discovers around dylan at this point. Well there are a lot of hangers on a lot. A lot of odd people there was also Grossman who was basically. All there was to woodstock that There were people who had had moved up there from new york city. Happy already trout. Being a great example of that but Basically it was just a a quiet place close enough to new york city. That was easy enough to get into the city if you had to. But there's also where you could relax and work on stuff and dylan this around himself. Like hangers-on bobby new worth. It's hard to describe as just a hanger on. I mean he was. Also basically dylan's enforcer. I mean verbally mostly but they had built this incredibly intimidating.

"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.
Holding it Together When Things Fall Apart | Pema Chodron
"Our guest this week has seemingly been trying to prepare us for this pandemic for years through a series of very popular books with titles such as when things fall apart welcoming the unwelcome and the wisdom of no escape. But as you're about to hear Pem Trojan is anything but gloom even though the title sound a little gloomy like all the great meditation teachers. I've had the good fortune to encounter. She has a real lightness in a sense of humor about her. As you will hear that said notwithstanding her chipper demeanor she has worked really hard to point out to her readers and her many students that ground listeners and uncertainty are fundamental facts of life which are as we all know becoming increasingly salient in our current crisis. Pamacho her name as I said she was born deirdre Bloomfield in Connecticut. She lived a rather conventional life going to UC Berkeley becoming a schoolteacher. Having a pair of kids but after a rough divorce she found herself adrift. And during that time she discovered Tibetan Buddhism and ultimately shaved her head and became a nun. She's now in her mid eighties. She lives in rural Nova Scotia. Where she's the director of Gamco Abby and we connected with her via old school landline. So you'll hear that. In the audio we talked to her about a bunch of things including how to actually as she recommends and one of the aforementioned book titles how to actually welcome the unwelcome. We also discussed how to befriend your demons how to sympathize without being stupid how to lighten up in the face of fear and how to embrace chaos as and this is a quote here extremely good news so here we go hello This is Dan Harris Cohen. Hello this is Hammer Children. Nice to connected. You Nice to talk to you again. Are you in New York? I am in New York right in the heart. Oh Yeah Wow. That's a hard place to be right now. That is a statement of fact. It is a hard place to no question. How how are you? Situate US. Where where are you exactly? And and how are you? I'm I'm good. I'm very well as a healthy and good. I'm in Nova Scotia and Ahmed COMPO ABBEY. Which is very remote in a kind of a very natural setting on the ocean. Far North in Nova Scotia Cape Breton Island. And we've had to close to anyone coming in but the community if like we're as they say sheltering in place where all sheltering in place together and just doing what we were doing before you know so. But we're very aware of course heightened awareness of what's happening With virus and the amount of suffering and death so that's very strong but in terms of being healthy we are and in terms of you know being able to our life is not claustrophobic. I guess you could say that. So we feel fortunate that way. I'm glad to hear that you're relatively unaffected but I I also hear that you're saying that you can't help but be aware of the global situation. Oh yeah yeah very much so very much so I was. I was looking at some of your book. Titles just read them back to you but when things well welcome welcoming the unwelcome comfortable with certainty the wisdom of no escape. I was thinking. It's like you've been trying to prepare us for this for decades. That's true I it's true actually I Win My primary teacher Jokin trump. Oh I live. He taught a lot about difficult times. We'll be coming and you should be preparing yourself to be strong and resilient and compassionate so that when things are difficult. It's like rather than catch the flu. You'll be there to help people you know. So that made a big impression on me to train working with difficulty when it wasn't so intense you know and everybody had plenty of difficulty to work with but I was always thinking of of things getting worse. Globally yes so the book titles somewhat reflect that and encouragement to work work with your heart and mind so that you could be Sort of steady and Able to be of benefit in these times I suspect people listening to this earth thinking to themselves in all caps. How how do I welcome the unwelcome on? How do I come comfortable with uncertainty? How do you to your teacher? Has a quote. Chaos should be regarded as extremely good news. How do I do all that? Sounds great but what I do I do that. Yeah well I. It's like well now. I make a pitch for the books which filled with instruction you know so. The basic thing is to have a meditation practice in which you become increasingly self aware. You're able to self reflect and you're conscious of your own habitual patterns and your own tendencies toward fear or aggression or whatever it might be you know self aggression aggression towards others and then the teachings are about when you can acknowledge. What's happening with you? Then the teachings are don't make yourself bag you know. Don't turn this into some kind of enemy but cultivate a kind attitude towards your own virtual patterns and don't act them out but don't repress them but be there get to know their energy very well with Kind open heart and mind so even that sounds might sound good but then the question is well. How do you do that but you do it? By starting to meditate people have many different styles of meditation. But most Buddhist Meditation has a lot of similarity to it and it's all about a open acceptance of whatever arises without getting caught in good and bad thinking. So that's where you start you start with acknowledging what's happening with you and then the expression is always something like making friends with that or being friendly towards that or you know welcoming that. I try not to use language. That's too corny but nevertheless I I use it quite a bit of it in any case like embrace and some things like that so that's the basis and from that you begin to get in touch as time goes on. You begin to have confidence. Really that fundamentally you are good person and you have habitual patterns to work on. But you have the strength in you to do that. And then an takes a lot of patients and sense of humor. But you work with yourself that way and That doesn't maybe sound so in a linear way how that adds up to being able to be comfortable with uncertainty. But in fact that's where it leads you because you get comfortable with the unpleasantness or the fear producing quality of seeing yourself so clearly you know but then the idea is to make friends with that so then the other thing that always taught is that to the degree that you can be friendly to yourself you will be friendly towards others to the degree that you can make friends with yourself unconditionally. You'll be able to have an unconditional regard and openness to other people.

How European Countries And New Zealand Are Lifting Coronavirus Restrictions
"New Zealand is preparing to lift. Its lockdown restrictions as the virus has been effectively eliminated in that country while new cases are still being diagnosed. Authorities know where each of them is coming from the country's director general of Health Ashley. Bloomfield said at a Monday news conference for eight days in a row. The number of new cases has been in the single digits and only nineteen deaths have been reported in a country of five million. Italy says it will lift. What is the West's longest corona virus lockdown for the first time next week quoting Reuters manufacturers construction companies and some wholesalers will be allowed to reopen from May fourth followed by retailers? Two weeks later while restaurants and bars will be allowed to reopen fully. From the beginning of June although takeaway business will be possible earlier and quoting Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Kante with this system. We take upon ourselves the risk of opening but with all precautions. We expect a very complex challenge. We will live with the virus and we will have to adopt every precaution. Possible quoting the Washington Post most federal states across Germany implemented rules on the wearing of face masks in public on Monday amid hopes that it will allow businesses to reopen without sparking a second wave of infections. The details differ between federal states. For instance in Berlin facemasks are mandatory public transport but violating the rule will not be penalized in Munich and other cities however the rules are expected to be more strictly enforced with hefty fines. Facemasks are now also mandatory in supermarkets and other shops across much of the country and quote

"Jeff in in your mind is there. You know we look at the rise of social media and and just `isolation in general that comes from people will either not going to work and working on the Internet where you just have these. You know you had the youtube personalities who are one in front of the camera and then they can't you know look anyone in the I. Why do you find that people are being trained less and less on this on how to develop like you? said that counterintuitive honor intuitive vulnerability interactive skillset. Do you feel like that's on the rise I do and I don't. I don't know where it's heading. Usually things are cyclical but technology is really exacerbated. This and what it what it does is it. It's created. I think in my mind a generation of of folks who have a false sense of self and they've almost built their the the caricature of themselves through social media a- and their in group when they lay their head down at night though they know. That's really not real. I think again creates that dissonance that distance between tween knowing that they need desperately human connection on a real level and knowing that they're not getting it through social media yet they'll tell themselves throughout the day in only swipe up swipe left swipe flight down. Swipe whatever that Iraq you know that they are interacting genuine with people but they know in their hearts in their gut that they're not as I don't know what the long term ramifications of that that are but I do know that you can create a tribe online right eating credit community the people that are like minded that can communicate and connect. But there's nothing like doing it in a in a real life setting. I don't think that'll ever be replaced. Until we're CYBORGS. I agree with you man it. It's so interesting it just makes you think you know makes you think as you look at people who are growing up now now that their parents and their parents really have to coach them on how to interact with people because every every pretty much every kid is shy right but like coaching them and teaching kids and people how to interact. I just believe is so important and I think you've yeah I think you really you know proven in the conversation today Jeff before we let you get out of here. I know you've got a new book coming out. You want to briefly. Tell our audience about some courses online that I think our our our our listeners. Really take away from. Thanks for asking Mondays the big day we're releasing a neuro selling so it's A. It's a book where no no matter what you're doing out there. You're probably trying to have a customer conversation in some regard in this isn't necessarily as sales training book is really a communication methodology. Where in the book? I show show you to science behind decision making that help walk you through a series of stories that you can build be more influential and those can be applied online digitally but primarily designed signed for that that face to face with video when you're looking at someone in the eye and connecting with them on a deeper level. And how do you. How do you help? Influence them for mutual benefit and so neuro selling. It'll it'll be available Monday. Thank you for asking about that. And then on our website braintrust growth dot com We do have courses if people are interested in learning more about some of the science behind communicating effectively Particularly use it through leadership sales and marketing with our clients but It's just are what are wise is really really much different than that. I want to see people come alive in their true purpose and find their gifts and strengths ability utilize them to help other people. Now they're gonNA have to communicate. That's where stuff comes in. Yeah I one hundred percent agree with you. We'll jeff thank you so much for sure connector teaching us about real authen- yeah thank you for teaching us about the neuroscience around around connection and giving us your insight well Fam- be sure to pick up neuro selling when it comes out by Jeff Bloomfield Jeff. You're the man we'll we'll be in touch soon. You're the best guys have a great rest of your week. Thanks Jeff One. Big thing that I picked up from that episode says that I was thinking about how people the days are experiencing less and less genuine connections right like whether it's like online dating or whatever and I think the big thing about connecting. Now how is that. It's like you I have to like go to a place. You have to strategically feel like find a place to connect it's like. Where can you connect with people outside of flake? The bars that were like. Where are you going to go? It's like go to church where you go to grocery store. Yeah like you're going to get that Delhi. I think were you and I were in an industry where we have to constantly connect whether it is digitally but also in person were constantly meeting people face to face which just like a muscle. The more that you do you it the more that you're able to really strengthen that that skill but for you know listeners. Who maybe have this nine to five job where they're in a cubicle for majority of their day in their week and then they have the weekends off? A lot of them are just like all right. I'm just now wired to not communicate and I'm very feeling very isolated so I do think gets about just being more intentional on just recognizing that about yourself like going when you're at the grocery store and just exercising that brain muscle right because we all kind of grew up not at extroverted like it's not about being sort of introverted. We all grew up hiding behind our parents legs and being shy and afraid afraid to look people in the eye and say hello but I think the older that we get we kind of regress a little bit. If we don't nurture in an exercise I agree and I think there's not enough. There's not a lot of people people who are being like you said either you're extrovert or introvert. But what if you're in between you know what if you're an extrovert in situations injure another's I feel like that's personally for me me. I remember around like a small group. I was very kind of loud and out there and you know as a kid and then go to school and I was just I would just shut shut down and not want to talk and so there was. There was a period of adolescence where my parents really had to coach me on how to interact and connect act with people. And if you're someone who's listening right now and you're like I wanna find like a relationship but I don't know how to interact and connect with people it starts by just being you write the authentic after being authentic you've got but yes but you also have to exercise that skill. It's literally skill set of how to communicate with people and how to just put yourself out there. It's like for us as we're we're starting to go into the speaking world more but speaking is not something I would say just naturally in my comfort zone right and insane because it's unfamiliar and I think when we are talking to people whether it's at our jobs are on a date. I've just found that when you're so worried about what the the other person's GonNa think of you or your so wrapped up in fear or whatever is consuming your mind. Then you're not allowing yourself to just be authentically you oh and that creates this sort of comfort. When you're conversing with somebody to naturally be able to just listen to what they're saying because you're no longer being distracted by the noise of your own voice in your head telling you oh my God you gotTa have something my teeth while he's talking to me right now? You're just very one-sided I've had I've had conversations with people people like that where I can tell or even myself. Where if I'm more nervous a little bit hesitant? I am not necessarily listening to what they're saying. And I'm just like reacting and reacting and reacting when there are ways in the conversation. When you're just calm and you're just being yourself you're able to listen more and really just piggyback and ask them questions just like Ping Ping Ping Pong ball like your ping pong and you're just like back and forth you know? It's like a muscle you get better and better and so why not practice when you're just at the grocery store or when you're just in the drive through or wherever just I listening more calming that voice in your head that's telling you to be you worried about something about yourself like being too much right now. My especially women. I think we over think a lot of this when we like a guy or when we're on a date where so worried we're too busy trying to figure out what they're thinking right now that it's creating a lot of noise in our own heads in our thoughts to just be ourselves into communicate and to connect would you say there's a lot of girls are also looking for a mistake that girls may going on on first dates and trying to connect is looking for. What did they want Mhm Yeah trying to be something. They're not which is what Jeff was talking about and I found myself. I've I've still find myself. Sometimes that I love to please people and added even during a specific season for years. I was doing that on my channel. I was doing videos. That weren't authentic to me. I'm not a glittery smokey eye over the top hop dramatic girl but I was trying to months postpartum after having a baby to create that. Because I well that's what my audience wants. Somebody once told me and it was really powerful. They said you are never going to know what anybody is thinking. So you can never make decisions based off that logic or create a life around that logic like because here's the thing let's say we were going to launch a clothing line or you want to go out there and start your business. If the foundation of those principles are going to be built built on. Well well I think the world really think the world would really like if I did this or I should do hair products because the world I know my followers. They love my hair. I need to do that for them. They would love it. Am I being authentic to myself and we need to think about that. Sometimes were approaching conversations. Never know what people want out of us so we have to be ourselves and be authentic. I think that's good and I think you know when you think about that. Everything is performance based when you're not being authentic the thing about being authentic before you can be authentic. I think you really truly have to look inside yourself and accept yourself for who you are and all the ball junk also accept. All of your your positives. I think there's a lot of people out there who they have positives but they don't WanNA accept them because they're not the positive ositive that they want and so it's like I'm not as beautiful as I should be so I go out and get a nose job or but what if you're smarter than all the other girls out there like embrace that like be smart. You know what I mean. What if you're really good at conversation? You know embrace that like us that not not use that to US people but I use that in your life growing up. I remember people always telling me like Steve. You're going to be a pastor and for the longest time I was like no no. I don't want that. That's not the skill set that I want. I want to be funny actor but but but you get what I'm saying and I've come to the place more and more regattas had to wrestle with me in my life to to accept you are placed inside of me and now that I have accepted who I am. I feel like I'm finally ready it. You know it's when I accepted that we were ready to do this. PODCAST that we are ready to start doing speaking things. But until you accept that it's hard on an interpersonal level and it's definitely hard on a performance level and so there's a lot of people out there faking vacant it but but y'all if we can just encourage you to accept truly who you are in the inside and embraced the things that you have there. They were given to you for a reason. I really think I think that in my life when I started to embrace the vulnerable things about myself some of those deep dark secrets in those things in my closet when I started to talk more about it whether it was publicly quickly or with friends or our community I started noticing that I felt like okay. I actually have more that I can bring to the table and more that I can offer in a conversation conversation with somebody because that's just authentically something I've been through and I've walked through it so I'm able to just be more of myself in without it turning into like you need emotional counseling girl like he said and I think that we have to be able to lean on the things that we know we can speak truly about and instead of trying trying to dig things that aren't there. I'm a firm believer that you should never speak about something to others and preach about something unless you walk the walk in you can personally share an authentic experience to help other people from it and so I just encourage anybody out there too. It's like just have a conversation with somebody and if the if it comes up you know what I struggle with this or I'm not very good at this or I'm afraid of this..

Instead of drinking soda or anything else sparkled with any sort of sweeteners. Trial Lacroix Trust me. It's got good flavor but it hasn't even the bad stuff in it you enjoy. The Croix sparkling water. It's really a calorie sweetener. Sodium innocent beverage with nothing artificial. It's healthier than obviously the sodas and all that other stuff out there that has sugar and whatnot. They also have twenty five flavor labor. So if you're somebody who is kind of picky well if you can't find something out of the twenty five flavors then I don't know what else will satisfy trust me. The coconut one is actually one of my personal favorites. And they also have another family of Lacroix's called Cure taste and they have Pena for say Palm Baya Sicily. Mon and By the way that's just a French accent coming out but if you guys want to try the course sparkling waters in the Croix. Curative sparkling waters. They're gluten free vegan kosher and non GMO and their whole thirty approved of of course and environmentally friendly quote cans are perpetually sustainable and recyclable.

"Connections and our guests slater Jeff Bloomfield. We were actually on his show and on his show. Jeff Blew our mind literally he. He's really amazing. He actually wrote A book years ago that was it was called story based selling and so he's all about the neuroscience behind how you connect with people and he talks a lot about sales but I I want to talk today about like forming authentic connections with people. Because there's so many people in the audience who are looking to form genuine genuine connections. Whether it's like Romantically or relational you're just looking for a better friend group and so I WANNA talk today before even getting the interview with him and stick around after the interview all because thousand I give thoughts on the interview with Jeff and it was a really powerful interview bay. But why do you feel like most people. Today are just struggling to make connections. I personally think it's from all of the things that were reacting to on a daily basis the things being thrown at us even just the definition Asian of authenticity. I mean there's so many different meanings behind it and not a lot of logic and so I love that Jeff is going to bring us. The neuroscience is behind it and he really opens it up in a way that I feel like I'm never heard before when it comes to being authentic and how to use that to really connect with people on a genuine level which which can ultimately of course lead to successful relationships blooming to successful careers and etc But I do think that it's because we're living in a very distracted attracted world that's altering our way of thinking and what is authentic which forces us to kind of like just stop and freeze I feel and sometimes go under a rock because it's too much we're like whoa. How can I be myself when everybody else is telling me how to be more? So today's episode is really going to not make you feel. I feel like that that you should be something. You're not in fact it's going to be the opposite. It's going to help encourage you to tap into exactly who you are and I love that and whether you're an introvert or an extrovert I mean we're all looking. I'm for genuine connection with people in oftentimes. We're looking for a deeper connection within the relationships that we already have. I mean you might have a relationship fan with a friend that you want to go deeper or with a loved one and this episode is really going to help you kind of learn how to open up and make that connection even deeper you know I think about it like a job interview. You know somebody who's looking to hire somebody. They probably interview so many people in one day but when they look back on all of the interviews in what what made that one person stand out. It's not just their skill and what they were able to do on paper. It's always that little thing that moment in the interview where they were able to connect with this person on a real level or about something that made the person interviewing feel like. Wow I just connected with this person I can trust them and I think that that's also so a really vital thing When you are understanding about your identity and how to bring that to the table in various departments of your life and that's that's such a good point? I think what's what's being sold to us. oftentimes like especially through like what we're seeing in social media. It's just this aspect of like cool right. Life is just like I'm funny. I'm cool. I got the things that you want. And so we're kind of being reversed trained and it's almost like we see that we see a lot of like like these people who are doing whatever on social media right and they had their wearing this mask and they're like I got all these things I've got all this stuff and so then we think like you were saying saying whether it's you know we're meeting a new person at a job interview. We're then trying to put that mask on as well and that mask was never hours to put on it. So never been put on ripened I but we just naturally have done that right right and it's not even like the mask that you would put on somebody else's mask and you're trying to put it on you're trying to put this front out there and you are not going to actually form a genuine connection and I'm glad you brought that up because I think there's a lot of us out there who walk into these scenarios in which we should good connect and we have no idea how to authentically connect with somebody whether it's a relationship stranger right where we're job hunting and so fan we're gonNA jump into this interview soon. Jeff Bloomfield GonNa give you so many good tips on how to actually connect with people. Whether it's professional or relational only and before we get to that though we want to talk to you about our new segment the good bad the imbetween that you're gonNA say in between like any between the in this week Fam- this is. This is a more of the bad than anything last week. We talked about Harry and Meghan leaving the real family but this week we're talking about in Tonio Brown. Says he's a he's a football player. He's wide receiver in the NFL. Oh Hey rick down here I'm GONNA break this down for you There was a a warrant issued for his arrest for like. I believe it was a battery charge assault charge And this guy. Basically a one year ago was considered maybe the best wide receiver in the National Football League and now people are listening to like. Is this about sports no crisis this is not about sports man. This is about like this is about pride. I believe Antonio Brown you know. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders. There's he basically was kind of being a Prima Donna saying all. These things were a problem for him just randomly right. He was like Oh my helmet or my cleats or this. That and so. The raiders traded him to the Patriots Patriots when the Patriots got him. They had him for about a week and after two weeks team to play for right right no one a great team but the Patriots released him because I think there was a sexual abuse case that came out against him. I don't know I don't think that's been proven guilty or not. Because he probably be in jail if it was causing lots of chaos but anyways he was was kicked out of the NFL. Nobody wanted to hire him. And you're talking about the most talented guy like one of the most talented guys to play and even teams that value money success in winning. Alan still wouldn't hire this guy who is clearly an incredible player but not somebody who has got it together right I mean. Can you imagine having to work with that person and travel on the road. I don't blame these coaches right. It's really tough when you've got somebody really liked that on the team causing that type of havoc but why would he. I wonder why do you think he has had that pride. The fame and stuff got to him. The success has gotten to him or he's just being a big baby. Well I look at this. And it's like pride right if this has a lot of pride because when he got kicked out of the NFL he is basically tweeting and posting on instagram like f the NFL F. These owners. Like I don't need you guys you know I'm the man pride is he's a cover up for insecurity and there's such a difference between pride and confidence confidence in my mind. Confidence is not loud. How'd it's not boastful because confidence is is secure in identity? Yeah and I believe. That's what gives you confidence and when you have somebody who is so oh talented and still so insecure. There's just this wide polarizing thing about them where it's like. They're so insecure all in another area very of their lives. So they're trying to be big and it comes out and they're so prideful in another area of their life have you ever been prideful. They I know what you WANNA now. Yes for sure. I think season of life where you were like acting like that. I think men in general we I think pride is a big thing that we struggle with but pride ride can be a sneaky thing I was actually thinking about this a couple of weeks ago and I was just praying and all right like why AM I. Struggling with getting hold of some of my weaknesses and pride was the thing that came to mind is like your pride is what keeps you from acknowledging your weaknesses fully not defending them and accepting them and then working on them and barrier right and this can just be in different areas. I mean you can be a humble person in general but still have prideful in certain areas areas. Where your pride is you will have that lack? You will be you know what I mean. You won't be able to work on that because your pride is not allowing the reality right to become your best and so with this Guy Antonio Brown I mean. It's just a sad sad thing I look at this. I'm like dude. This guy is throwing his life away because of his unwillingness to listen to others into submission to authority in ultimately because his pride like the like the Bible says you will fall. Pride goes before the fall and so I hope that he rebounds rebounds or maybe some coaching Lebron James Because Lebron James's so humble I've met him before he's a nice guy I can't I keys on top of the world right but he continues to just like even go more so out of his way to just be humble and be confident and I mean that's that's that's like you said when you know your identity doesn't matter what the haters say doesn't matter what scandals and allegations try to come your way you just have that rock solid foundation you know based on your identity and it's just sad I I also believe in redemption you not to be the end for Antonio I think he can definitely we come back from it but it's GonNa like you said it's GonNa be up to him. I hope that I hope that he's able to I mean it's just said I hope he's able to rebound. I mean you look at people who do this to themselves elves and you have to have pity you know. It's it's not good at a safe. They need those paycheck so he will just say deserve it by you. Know we gotTa be forgiving and I wish people that they would be able to actually change change for the perfect. We all have our deepest darkest secrets so Hopefully I'm I'm rooting for him. I don't even know who he is. He's a lot of people are coming up. WE HAVE OUR INTERVIEW.

"You get your podcasts. What's up fan? Welcome back to another episode said of the Good Life. I'm sitting beside my beautiful wife says on. I love you babe and let me looking very very nice today by the way all we are in my dad's man cave. There is a dead deer staring at me. What is that called anyone? taxidermy is gone but today is not about the. It's all about out making connections to ask you this question. Do you struggle with making genuine authentic connections I think there's been times in all of our lives when we could say yes. Some of us are very extroverted. But that doesn't mean that we are forming genuine authentic connections through compensation and connecting. Yeah some of us are very introverted and we struggle with just getting out there and even conversation let alone making a connection today. We're GONNA teach you how exercise that muscle but also take it one step further we've got Jeff Bloomfield on the show and he's here to talk to us about the neuroscience behind connecting. It's not all all about your heart. It's also actually about your brain. The rain affects your connections with others. Saz and I also will after the interview give you our take take on everything that we learned from Jeff Bloomfield. It was a really great episode. So if you're wanting to learn to make better stronger deeper connections this is going to be a great episode for you stick around Fan. Plus you've got a new segment the good the bad the inbetween cigarettes about to get good fan. So today we are talking about forming authentic.

"Just made mark. I'm wondering if you see an economic future for mode clicks where for example. I'm thinking of things like stitch fix right. I'm thinking of ways of high end. Fashion being reused and I wonder if there's a kind of licensing or membership or kind of systematic social engagement with it where there's collaboration with you or with the machine over time and where actually you benefit. But it's not about you having to make everything for every person. Yeah that the models kind of exploring at the moment and it's purely because there are additional benefits here that we wanted to explore there are ways in which you can bring communities together so it was something something which we are very keen on involving for that human input to be paramount. Really in this whole operation. So it's about the people coming together. Sean have come up with a number of different ways in a number of solutions of how this can be put together but once we release it out there. I'm sure everybody else is going to come up with amazing things that they can do with it. Give competitors you see you don't know and it's something which isn't necessarily just about clothing as well so we're also looking at where you can turn your dress brass into a bag you know. And then that bag can become a cushion cover. And then maybe there's some sort of interior screening that can be made mark. What are you working on at electro bloom? That's not mode clicks and specifically. I have a have a sense that you have done some work with television and film An interesting clients that the average designer might not be in daily contact with shore. I worked on token which was at at the beginning of this year. There's projects are always lovely to do because they just allow you to kind of pick your whole design and making king ability against a very specific set of requirements so with with token for example. You know it was a very simple straightforward lamp but then also needed to be you know in terms of what you figure out where it's actually going to be filmed and the restrictions over the space and so it needed a cable because it also needed to be controlled environmental motor in order for it to spin particular speed. And so you got to build all of that. So I'm doing a little mental inventory right now mark. I'm thinking okay. Jewelry are- handcraft three D. printing fashion technology. What haven't you done that you want to do now? I started writing a lot as a as as a vehicle to explore different elements and then it's also looking at sort of the importance of of narrative in the design process. How you can begin to us as you know an imaginary state does bose to begin to kind of drive a design process? So it's something that I'm also then starting to deliver to the students as a way of thinking about how to come up with something. I will say that as an educator I share with you the fact that I never felt I had enough in my own education of direction about how to come up with my own on ideas and I came of age as as suited. I'm older than you are but I think we all came of age at a time where we didn't have youtube video showing instruction but now they exist. The fact that is a good student will educate themselves to be able to make produce materials. But how to come up with your own ideas. I think the biggest challenge for us as educators is Getting students to stop looking at the Internet. Uh we were running the design sprint which is Google Ventures project last week and You know we had shooting students and I was saying to them. You need to draw. I can't draw said we need to draw. Assemble no no I just need to go into Google to be inspired wired and our saying to them you can just look out the window to be inspired. Mark was saying when he was a kid being out in the country whittling. Would you. You know that's kind of a core skill in terms of finding your own creativity and not being reliant on things that everybody else is doing showing showing. It's kind of you know using your hands using your your mind and just thinking and I think that is what makes the good design thinker. I couldn't agree more and I thank you both so much for your time today. It's been wonderful. Thank you thank you. The design of business. The business of design is podcast from design observer.

"They run mode clicks which makes wearable three D. printed clothes shawn and mark to the podcast. Thank you so we're recording today at the University of Hartford shareware Sean is a dean and mark is a visiting professor. I am actually a visiting professor. Can you tell our listeners. We're Hartford your is and how each of you ended up with a connection to this place. Hot Future is about twenty five minutes north of central London so the twenty five minutes on the train. From King's cross. I ended up here about fourteen years ago starting as an associate head of school. And I've been here ever since working in the school and the university as a dean and an associate dean. And what's your excuse. I came here via Sean. Uh Essentially I've known for a number of years and we worked together in the past. And then when he was sort of establishing the technology part of the digital hack lap we start to collaborate and work worked together around that Shannon. You were born in South Africa. So how did design enter into your life. At what point did you know you wanted to be a design person. Well that goes back many years as a child. We traveled quite extensively as a family living. In America Israel Israel Belgium England in fact has spent very little time in South Africa. But I think it was my both my parents were very a fashion-conscious mother ran fashion. Stores in Johannesburg in the seventy s and my father had a leather factory so I was always kind of surrounded by that world and then I think it was probably when we lived in Belgium and my father took my mother shopping. Dave Senator Ron. thera became really interested in clothing. And then it just kind of blossomed from clothing was your way into design. Clothing was mowing to design. In fact I started doing graphic design degree Eh as my first degree and then I stopped making clothes and I had my first. Fashion show is a seventeen year old with a clothesline. Well all I showed with the designer who designed dynasty like the television showed. Oh yeah mm and mice first collection was shown with him at what was then the women's World Fair but then I sat up my own studio a licensed. My name out and sponsored Musab African nine hundred ninety one so you have a long standing interest in luxury. That's right and it comes out of that that those people in that work and always very interested in craft and materials and then became much more interested in why people by the things they buy. Math was my expiration into luxury which still exists today. We're GONNA come back to that in a moment but I don't want mark to fill we forgotten in here. You were not born in South Africa and I don't think you came up through fashion. Not The origin story of Mark. So my background is is in making things and I think that came about purely because I grew up quite isolated in the country Up in Suffolk which is North East of England very rural and so I learned very quickly to start making things my hands my father was a welder alta so I suppose there was that sort of making heritage heavy like in the family so as always around sort of engineering light engineering working with metals and basically it could be turning things into things and you went to school to study. What kind of design so initially I went to school to study graphics? But you you like Sean Spent many years designer jewelry and luxury goods working at places like asprey and Simon Harrison. What were you driven? Also or drawn on also I should say to to sort of high end refinement It was more. I think the idea that once I'd sort of figured out that I could make do things and then it was a scale. I used to work at so then that seemed to be more suited to jewelry and particularly as both dealing with customers and making things that would actually fit people pick with people's lives then wanted to explore that at all levels so luxury was one end but it was also fast fashion high volume manufacturer designing for that whole industry as well as designing jewelry for technology for the Financial Services Industry for example. So it's really trying to explore how that one area could be sort of used in lots of different Instances you quickly describe for our listeners. Who might not know what fast fashion is? An whites differed from other kinds of fashion short. So one of the things I suppose. I was always interested in the idea of connecting with the material in using tools to actually get the best out of it so that as from a luxury perspective where it sort of sets goal it's about getting the very best there's obviously time constraints and expertise are also related to that but fast. Fashion is driven like a machine so essentially about seasonal cycles so in most cases it's two months or four times a year developing new collections. And that needs to be done in quite a short cycle so generally Dan reworking eighteen months two years in advance of the actual delivery date On its quantity that you're shipping out to the stores So there's clearly really an economic benefit to those involved in fast fashion but it seems to me there's also an ethical component about either cutting corners. Or what you're giving up or even possibly Blais people being exposed or abused in some way Sean. Could you talk a little bit about the maybe the dark side of that show. I mean I think the you most recognized incident around. The exploitation of the workforce was in Asia with the burning down of one of the factories that that supplied many large fashion companies. And I think what we see. Increasingly is that in order to be able to produce the huge volumes of product that there is an element of exploitation of the workforce the the counter argument would be that you know. Those workers are owning and living in whichever environment they are but they're working to such a scale and at such a pace that they are producing hundreds of millions of products every day probably in order to satisfy the demand of the stores that are selling four pairs of socks for a pound or a pair of jeans for nine pounds saying that. It's not an isolated within fast fashion and producing things very quickly to be consumed very quickly. Some of the luxury brands also adopt patterns where they are mass producing using products in order to satisfy the demand of the markets that they have created albeit defined within a luxury brand category. So so I think there's a fine line between dedicated craftsman who are working in isolation in the Italian as in you know whether tingling numerical Franso Italy to some luxury Brian Manufacturers that are manufacturing in these huge factories trees producing hundreds of thousands of goods. How do you mark Reconcile for example. The B. spoke in the handmade and the craftsmanship tip with the economics of mass production. Are Are you do both things. Are you always working in there. For example your studio on balancing that between having to produce set scale and produce things that are more specific. Yeah I tried to do both. I like to basically sort of take the time to actually focus. Maybe on just a one off but then it's is also looking at how you can make that work in a production environment. It's also I've had a lot of dealings with production overseas in the Far East Lots of factory visits and then also looking at how can I actually bring some of that manufacturing maybe back to the UK so he's also looking at sourcing out factories and trying to kind of undertake nick production in are you sourcing them because of their skills or because of the cost benefit or because of what. I'm because I think it's ashamed that we lose that connection to manufacturing heritage. I think it's important that we make things and we continue to make things. So I suppose says says veering towards US becoming more sort of service. Orientated as I was already losing that connection to things and that's not necessarily a a good thing because I think it's the actual things that actually connect us to our reality. How does that connect to your exploration of things like three we? D printing technologies so I suppose when I was making things as a kid I also grew up with the whole home computing market. So I kind of saved up my my paper money and bought my first one started programming so that was back in eighty five things where you progress well it. It was very sort of basic at that time and so the language was basic. It's really just about. How do you get sort of strings of text to kind of come up on on the screen but then also looking at how do you you then begin to kind of plot points in space so that you can begin to get some sort of a three d representation of cube for example that would rotate magic eminence amazing but looking back it was also understanding a quite an early age that I could actually use technology to make things and so became another tool tool and you didn't feel that three D.? Printing was a release of craftsmanship. You are looking at incorporating it into a new kind of craftsmanship. Sure I'm when I was working as a fashion jewelry company I sorta sourced three D. Printer to buy in and so that design team had a bit more autonomy when it came to dealing with customers so they could use cad to actually model piece of jewelry for a customer and they can go and have the meeting with the customer and they could keep the discussion going development going but the the find trained craftsman also part at this company saw this as being was it. They were going to be getting their P forty fives and they were out of the door..

Grade schools ban Uber Eats, GrubHub deliveries during school day
"Of packing lunches, many high school students now pack their cell phones ordering food delivered to their school with apps liked grub hub door dash and Uber eats the deliveries have become so frequent and disruptive that many schools have banned them. Pat Watson is the principal at west Bloomfield high school in west Bloomfield Township Michigan he said, quote, it was getting to the point where you'd have eight ten fifteen deliveries a day. It's a building policy. You can't have food delivered during the school day unquote, other schools have done the same thing. School officials have addressed the issue in states from California to Florida. Diane Blaine is spokeswoman for Chippewa valley schools in Macomb County Michigan which is north of Detroit. She said, quote, we view it as a safety concern. Having strangers and people that we don't know coming to our buildings with delivery bags. We just don't allow it. I'm quote, Blaine said, the district's Dakota high school band the practice about three years ago, and it's other high school Chippewa valley followed suit some schools have policies explicitly prohibiting it others frown on it. But don't formally van. It all them say the practice has exploded with cell phone use. And the proliferation of delivery services, high school students are the only ones who order food deliveries to school. That's according to Jeff huger assistant manager of the jets pizza about a mile north of west Bloomfield high. He said that some students in elementary school. We'll have pizza delivered for lunch. I mean, it sure beats a carton of milk in some cafeteria pizza. Huger said, quote, the parents will call and say my kids lunches at noon, can you deliver a pizza to the office and maybe throw in a bottle of water, unquote. Looser good. They're staying hydrated. Parents typically pay what the credit card or through the jets app on their phone. The delivery driver will bring plates. Napkins if requested. Jets charges three dollars and fifty cents for delivery compared with four dollars for grub hub. He said that his pizza places across the street from a middle school and a prep school. In addition to two nearby elementary schools. He said all of them are good for business. He also mentioned that teachers are known to order pie for lunches. Well, that's what I was going to say is going to say the ban on this seems like it would hurt teachers more than students whose poor teachers. They just want to have pizza delivered to their teachers lounge. But now now students of even ruined that for them. Poor things they work really hard to wouldn't it be nice for them to just be able to do not have to run out and drive somewhere. Go through the drive thru not all the schools in the same area addressed the delivery issue in the same manner. The Plymouth canton school district just northeast of an Arbor Michigan, which operates three high schools in one location does not have a formal policy about food deliveries. But the building procedures don't allow it said spokesman, Nick, Brandon he said that the main reason for the ban of school safety, but there are other reasons as well Brennan said quote, the second that food enters the school office. It becomes the school offices responsibility, unquote. He added that it created concerns of food safety foodborne illnesses and allergic reactions. He said, quote, it's also overclouded issue for office personnel. If they're having to manage multiple food orders at a given lunchtime. With all the other things they have to be responsible for that's a concern as well on quilt. Brandon said that the district works hard to provide healthy good tasting food and. Cafeterias and students are always free to Brown bag it the principal at west Bloomfield said deliveries aren't always on time. Tardy deliveries made for tardy students. Watson said, quote, it's supposed to be here at twelve and my lunches done at twelve thirty now shows up at twelve thirty five so no I haven't gotten to class. But now, I've got my Panara, and I go to class to eat in their unquote Watson's at teachers object to kids eating class. But the students would complain it wasn't their fault that the delivery was late Watson also has heard plenty of excuses for why an order was placed. What's instead quilt kids say, oh, my mom forgot to put money on my lunch account. He said that one student claimed a cousin ordered it for him not knowing it wasn't allowed Watson said that claims seemed doubtful when the delivery driver knew the student's name. The school does allow deliveries to school after class end so students staying after school for a sport or other extracurricular activity can order all they want. He said what's said, quote, when I was in high school, we knew to pack two lunches one for lunch and one for after school, I guess the new normal as you whip out your cell phone and order some food unquote cell phones have become so pervasive in high schools that Watson has used them to his own advantage. When he wanted to remind kids of the no food orders during school hours policy. He sent it out in a tweet just goes to show that if your parents really love you they'd take you to Pinera the night before. Give you
