And if I did have, I would expect in a good doctor that I would be going, too. Wouldn't be talking to me about these things in the first place. And maybe if I have to bring up to my doctor Medication that he's not. Aware of, and it's his job to be aware of. And I got to suggest to him that I ought to be taking this because of our commercial that I watched. Maybe I don't have the best doctor. Maybe instead of asking your doctor About the drug.

The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting
"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.
What is happening with the Uighurs in China?
"In China's northwestern province of Xinjiang the government has locked up more than a million workers a Muslim minority in a vast gulag. The whole province is a surveillance state within a surveillance state. The government claims it's de radicalizing population prone to separatism. People in Xinjiang in your happy life people call for older to restored each in. China of course, is strongly opposed to any torture and prosecutor and discrimination of any avenue. Good people. This is not the case in. Child. The reality is that it's carrying out crimes against humanity. We're going to take a look at how the repression is tearing families apart and preventing leaguers from even having families. We'll speak. With. googlers forced always to look over their shoulders. And will find deeper complexity in the party's ethnic repression on a visit to a tourist town in south western China. Own. The government is persecuting not only adults but hundreds of thousands of children to. Reporting by the Economist has unearthed government documents that show not de Radicalization. It's a campaign to crush the weaker. Islam. Faith to erase their cultural identity to chip away in their minds and in their bloodlines at what makes them weavers. It's difficult to get firsthand accounts of what's happening. Clearly the weaker inching John are unable to speak. But some brave souls have managed to escape and to tell their story. Our China Affairs at its her Gotti Epstein has been speaking to one of them. Presume Daoud and her three children, Fridays? We're probably the most terrifying day of the week. That was the day when officials would question students and schools in. The interrogators were looking for clues about the students lives at home. They wanted to know whether parents prayed or used Islamic greetings or talked to the children about the Prophet Muhammad. If the answers were in satisfactory they could result in a family member being sent to what they call a vocational training centre. or The camps in Xinjiang New Gulag. One Bologna. Bake. As. Miss Dogwood told me her children would be nervous that they would answer. Wrong. And get her sent back to the camps where she spent two months in two thousand eighteen. Kept. A. Terrible. saw. The Donald Families Experience in this regard is is quite common and Chin John. Absolutely. People Focus when talking about the workers on the detention camps but really Xinjiang is an open air prison. For twelve million dollars, their surveillance both low tech and high tech Miss. Dodd Dawood told me of an APP installed on her phone and where afterwards when she. Used traditional Islamic greeting on the phone. She was called minutes later by her. Local police asked her why she did that. Victim get little bug Emerson S Allama. amendment. Get. Across the region, families will be appointed to write and read articles praising Seton King. Others might have to write and read hands to ethnic harmony and some have to praise other policies that the party is imposing on them including the placement of quote unquote Han relatives in their homes and given that much of this has has come out now in how do officials in an Giang justify that that level of surveillance Chinese officials say that they are doing this in the interests of the weaker pupil they say that they are fighting the three evils of terrorism extremism and separatism. They say, they are making Xinjiang's safer and they say they're making the weaker pupil happier. But in reality, the experience of workers in the camps and even outside the camps is one not of training for the workforce but of indoctrination of trying to strip them of their relief, zero city or of any sort of cultural practices which stripe them as efforts to be distinct and separate from China. So what happens to those who were deemed to broken these many tiny rules? Well, leaguers like Ms Dour are placed in the camps Kerr offenses was for. From Pakistan, where her husband is from visiting. Pakistan. A number of years earlier. Accepting money from a foreigner who has a family friend who lived in China and securing an American visa these are all things that police asked her about a four sending her straight off to a detention camp but she's apparent. I mean what happens to the children of Leaguers who are who are detained? Well, this is the problem that the Communist Party itself is having to face up to because they are struggling to deal with the children of the parents of detained in local work documents that we obtained the officials us a chilling tra- -nology to refer to children whose parents are being held by the state. They're called Don Kuhn or single hardship or swung double hardship depending on whether one or both parents. Has Been sent away and what the documents also reveals that they're struggling to keep pace. They want to place these children in boarding schools basically, and so they have spent a tremendous amount of money expanding boarding facilities at schools across sin John just in the last couple of years, and what are these schools like is not like kids version of the Gulag you described for adult that's not too far off I. mean. These schools many of them have high security fencing and that's even true of free kindergartens and they are places where the kids are kept. These are cited even in state propaganda sort of celebrated. But those kids are as young as months old the propaganda describes as being well fed well, cared for happy learning the national language. Chinese. The point of this propagandist to convey the notion that they are helping the. Wiegert children but obviously, the effect is much different. We've seen testimonies from Chinese teachers who volunteer work in these areas that described children in pretty bleak conditions and in terrible emotional states. But what do you mean by diluting the culture on the surface of it? This just looks like oppression does right and suppression, but it's pressure that's really designed to reduce the influence of the weaker people and even their numbers. Their policies supporting confirming ethic marriage trying to encourage weaker girls when the girl enough to marry Han men and their rewards associated with that those included job of flat or even keeping family members out of camp. And then there are other ways that they're literally trying to reduce the growth at least of the wieger population China enforces limits on families is in John. So women are being fitted with you at a much higher rate than the rest of China. Women with three children, which is the limit in rural. Xinjiang. are subjected to sterilization or a great risk of that. Ms Dawood yourself says, she was subjected to sterilization two thousand eighteen. The most abilities maintenance, this hustle bonetti based. So what do you think is going on here? Any seems the goal for the Chinese authorities is more than simply to to break the spirits of the weaker. I would say the situation meets every category of crimes against humanity literally has been defined by the Rome Statute International Criminal, court have forcible transfer population. You have imprisonment the prosecution against the identifiable group have the enforced disappearance of persons. It's a term that's codified international law and I think it's pretty clear and given that how should the world respond what is to be done about this? The most important thing is that governments need act they should offer asylum seekers. Should sanction officials in Xinjiang that are responsible issue banned goods made with forced labor I most important governments should speak up I think the right moment to call for action. You could see maybe China's cloud cracking a little under the weight of these horrific revelations. There are more people standing up to China and fewer standing with him today. There is a sign of hope for human rights and there is a sign of hope for the oppressed we were people in China.
Department of Justice sues Google for antitrust violation
"Think one of the most important things that this justice department could do is to bring an antitrust suit before I have this job I was Attorney General the State of Missouri was I think the first attorney general the nation to bring an antitrust investigation of Google I'm delighted now that all fifty state attorneys general plus DC had this an investigation underway and the US Department of Justice Antitrust suit against Google is absolutely warranted and probably against facebook also. So that's number one. I do think we need to change our laws to get at this concentration of power that these tech companies have amassed in. We can do that along several fronts number one consumers on have control over their dad consumers on to have the right to say I don't. WanNa be tracked around the Internet. I want to control all data be able to say no, you can't track me unless explicitly consent to it they ought to be able to give their data back to have the big companies delete that down behavioral advertising, which is where most of these companies Google facebook where they really make their money behavioral advertising I believe should. Not Be immunized by section two, thirty of the Communications Decency Act that famous shield that immunity shield that has allowed these companies to become the became us that they are I don't think they ought to get immunity for behavioral advertising I think it's outside the scope of the Act Congress ought to make that clear. That would remove much incentive for these companies. To track and to spy and surveillance and sell that data all doesn't service to behavioral targeted advertising I. Don't think they should get the immunity shield for that and finally Jerry I would say that it's time to provide section to thirty itself. At another way if these companies enforce their terms of service, unequally, individuals ought to be able to take them to court. They're treated the tech companies are unlike any other media company in America they are immunized from sue just about across the board they have all the power individuals no power. It's time to redress that else. So Congressman Facility you talk about a range of options what are the options that appeal to you I agree with Senator Much Senator Holly Just said, look we. Want. Competition back in the digital marketplace. Many of the problems that are discussing this afternoon are a direct result of the enormous market power. The dominance of these large technology firms in the absence of competition has resulted in a decline in innovation oppressive contracts unfair practice anti competitive behaviors than simply are permitted because of the huge size and power of these platforms. So what? We really want is antitrust enforcement that brings real competition into the marketplace that will allow a consumers to have more control of their data that will allow consumers to have greater privacy protections that will prevent these platforms and engaging in anti competitive behaviour the favors, their own products and services that that doesn't allow them to acquire data that then premier them to acquire competitors. To bully competitors to exclude people from their market. So I think all of the good competition policy that we fought so hard to include in the history of our country needs to be protected and we need to bring real competition to this digital marketplace. I do want to say this notion of unequal treatment look I know there is I, think one of my two colleagues. Warning as a baseless fantasy grievance that the engine somehow biased against conservative voices. That's simply not true. In fact, if you look at the vast majority, every day of the highest rankings, their conservative websites just did it before I came on today nine out of ten are Fox, News Dan Bongino Donald Trump, Jay sekulow fox, and friends Margaret. There's one NPR that's not considered a Republican or Conservative. So that's just not a real issue, but the dissemination of also permission. Is Real. We saw it in the two thousand, sixteen campaign. We're seeing it again here, and this is the challenge is how do platforms deal with this very serious and pernicious problem that is undermining our democracy, the widespread dissemination of false information every time there's a discussion about section two thirty is certain attempt to bully these classrooms roads because of this claim of conservative bias, it just doesn't exist and we have a real problem here that we need to
U.S. charges Russian military hackers
"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.

Well I'm the only doctor in my family. Really. I at. So always have to explain everything to everybody my mom my sister has been in their words. So I, my husband's not a physician either so. So I'm used to explaining things to. So I always think how they explain this to my mother and my sister. They would be able to grasp it. So God so And also. You know I think that I love to teach. So I always wonder why people follow me because I'm not exactly sure has with the code you know most of what I do is cardiology related on meet related but you know I have been reading. So a Lotta Times something I'm like, Oh my God this is so interesting I have to tell everybody I love that. So the. Air Purifier. I Call I people need to know this are people need to so anything that thing with the heart is everything affects the heart rape stress air quality, Kovac, so really because. I kinda tie almost anything in because you know it will always have a downstream effect to the heart. That's really true. That's really true. Well I think it's such a gift that you have and I feel like if I ever were in need of your services, I would really want you to be my doctor in that because the just the way you presented I mean you're taking the time and you're reading all these different studies, which honestly makes my head hurt like trying to like analyze and take in different like research studies but the way you present it, it's like Oh my God. Okay. That makes sense in. You've just become a very trusted source for me of information. So you know part of the challenges. You know the instagram format is visual right? So I myself an experimental so there has to be a pitcher right rail. That's why I have the you know like a board or something 'cause now I need to be able to find my own post all where is fish oil post? Right yeah. Yeah. But then I, it's Kinda creative. How do I get the the main parts of the data? Visually interesting way that succinct. 'cause you use only the caption I don't know about you but like sometimes my is just cross like reading that. Yeah option Oh. Yeah. So The caption is the attention grabber. I've been playing around with a like a slide deck. It's almost like a slide show yet Some things I need to say, so it needs to be a chalk talk. Has after dry or and it's just me and my iphone. So. So part of it is is. It's create. It's creative for me right has I have what I want to say, how can I do it in a visually interesting way? Also to be succinct. 'cause you know doctors go on and on and on and lectures can be like on and on and on right yeah. Yeah How do you get a key point? Get it across in an interesting way people like Aha I got. Yes. I felt that way after your I mean you you broke down the hydroxy clear Quinn steady and like you're like your chalk talk, you know you're nearly everything I was like Oh my God I want to learn from you every day. Yeah. So that's the thing. So it's fun for me because I have to pivot to different formats right depending on what I WANNA do Whether it's the easy thing for me to do an inspirational pokes grab insure of my family, right something inspirational I'm done in like fifteen minutes, right? Right. But to an educational pulsed. I would already do the reading. So I'm already rigged article and I think, Oh, this is really interesting. Then breaking it apart, figuring out how to deliver what a cute little emoji. Duo Voice. So that's the fun. That's the creative and fun part to make. Take a while. So. Yeah, I know. It's part of the brain that I don't normally use when I teach follows you know for that during a dry board lecture with the facts, right? Right. So this involves visual creativity, which is for me using the other part of my brain which. Is Fun and interesting to
What I Do To Guarantee My Funnel's Success
"Already. So I wanted to do this episode because. I was bored this weekend not really board. On. Friday, we've actually office, and then one of the guys who team Nick Sanders Hey. Fun Projects you want to do on the side. It'd be kind of fun as like what is the fun project that we have on the side that you know? We can do real quick and he's like I. Love to his Busselton out I'm like, okay. We started thinking back and remembered that eight years ago I had to say. First. Sight called T smackdown. And because picking two competing concepts philosophies or whatever, and make a t shirt for each one. Let people vote with their wallets tries to come to sign like, Oh, I want this wins today by the teacher to make sure that wins right and so I'm right designed the site we had designed eight years ago because. It was. So. Funny Because we were. It was back when. Obama was running against Romney and so. The initial fouls we found had Obama versus Romney thing and so it's kind of fun and it was found that. We found that those PSG fouls let's do this make this. So he took it and he got all working side click funnels and spend the whole week in doing that and obviously the elections are coming up right now let's say let's do some by trump shirts. This we got designers going shirts and all sorts of stuff anyway suspend this really project that would together literally like no time it's crazy like it's been sitting on my hard drive four years now like. His files look so cool. If you want to see it in action, I'm not sure when this podcast little drop. My guess is hopefully, the site will be live by them but his tee-shirt smackdown dot com so you can go see there anyway. So constantly pick two different shirts to compete right so like when the movie twilight came, we could have done like Edwards Edward versus. Joseph or during the bachelor season could be this person because that person or whatever. Right and so you can be things you put out there and the communities of the things Ogle vote on him. And so. This one right like. Less than a month before the election everyone's really angry about both sides we should capitalize on this right as capitalist do and so. Together, and so jake, our team went and got a whole bunch of really cool. T shirt designs the he's he made. One. Some for trump some for Biden and we through on site and way they've been killing themselves almost ready to go. So we're can go live. Anything getting. Pick. Your favorite go to t shirt SMACKDOWN DOT COM by what you want to prove to vote with your wallet. But. Anyway I'm telling you this because. A lot of times for something right and you're spend time and energy June this. I have no idea. It's going to take me all this time and I'm not going to work or not, and all this fear. The reason why? I'm able to do crazy things like this study fears because before I said yes. Before we started the process, the first question that we asked was if we do this thing where we can get the traffic for it that was the question and if I don't know the answer that question the answer. The answer is always no, we're not doing the right. To know that I and so that was the first question where we traffic and I was like, okay, well. Traffic. For this means we need conservative Republican. People we need Liberal Democrat people right and where we find people may okay their email lists week commit here here and here, and then there's email list here here and here, and then the here's the facebook page we can target. Here's here's the liberal. Here's the conservative. Here's the answer really quickly in as quickly could found is many different variations. As. We could of both sides know where you traffic. So very quickly boom here's the traffic I think conservatively probably said, I don't tend to twenty thousand clicks in three or four day period time, which is how long lily smacked probably in the blasting, and so let's do it right and so now Dick and Jake and James who've been working on the site on the free hours after hours, the weekends and stuff. While they're doing that I just went and text all these people's Hey can rent agilis. Yes. Clarin Angeles. Yes. How much does it cost wanted this date I want this much and within. Within twelve minutes maybe. I had enough traffic lined up to get about some between probably ten to fifteen thousand clicks half on the conservative side and half on the liberal side and so now when the lights sites live and click a button that fast sales and start coming in. So. What do you guys? Number One 'cause I want to show off? Brag. Bummer. Fund idea that we had eight years ago we're finally actually executing on. But number two is for you guys start thinking about this gay that's one of the biggest things people have this much time and energy and effort on their idea and their thought, and they're going to be theirselves messaging to build their funnel, and then right we're traffic. and. That should have been the first question not the last I remember. His pre click funnels. No with a it was right when I first came out actually so. Five years would probably I was in London and I spoke this really cool. Then afterwards, they my wife and kids were still. gallivanting around Lyndon Y was. Finishing my speaking I sat in the hallway talked for two or three hours to all the people that was really fun. Definitely as introvert, but it was it was still good talk nationalist questions number one person asked me this question that I'd never answered before. No nobody ever asked me before but he asked the question he said man, you've been doing this so long how do you know that? Something's going to be successful before you do it now?
Bringing Democracy to the People With Amanda Litman
"So Amanda Run was founded on the day of trump's inauguration. So tell me a little bit about the organization and why you founded it. So I worked for Hillary's for two years before that for President Obama for the Florida Governor's race in for nonprofit and between the week after election day I, got a facebook message from somebody I went to college with Hey Amanda. You've worked in politics. You know this world I. Want to run for office because of trump president seems like anybody can do this. What do I do and I did? Not have an answer for him. I did not know what to tell him to go. He wanted to be more than just a volunteer and more than just voter. If he wanted to actually lead, there was nowhere that would be guaranteed to take this call. So I reached out to a whole bunch of people. One of whom became my co-founder that's incredible operative, Dross Morales for Cudjoe we wrote a plan we built a website and me launch run for something. As you said on inauguration day we thought we'd got maybe a hundred people who wanted to run for local office instead in the first week, we had a thousand as of today we're up. To more than fifty one, thousand young people across the country who've raised their hands just say I want to run for local office what next so we've built an organization that does best that we find more people who wanna run things like School Board City Council and state legislature and we help them through the process I think it's so cool and one of the things I love so much about run for something is that you proudly self identify as progressive and that you came from the Obama and DNC campaigns and I, think there is this kind of lake mistaken belief that you can't be progressive and be a traditional. Democrat. So what are your? Thoughts on that lay that out for US unpack that a little bit. How does it work for us? I think we define Progressive Democrat really broadly, we look for a set of shared values shared belief that everybody deserves access to affordable healthcare that everybody's sort of access to education that we need to fight for working families that we need to protect organized labor that we need to protect it and for the environment, and we can share those goals and disagree on the tactics that we need to accomplish them. But the only way we get to really implement those tactics or even have a starting place to decide a meme is to win elections. I. So, for us a Democrat or progressive in New York might look a little different than Democrat in Vienna right. But we gotta be willing to win everywhere to run everywhere on our set of shared values and we also know that for most people especially for local elections. Partisan identification is the way they make their voting decision they look at the ballot and they say, this one's a democrat. Cool. That's all I know about them. So for us, right really important to support people running under that party line knowing that that's the way the most voters make up their minds. It's so smart and it makes so much sense because every district of restate the. Issues are different and I think people forget that when we live in these big cities that when you look at some place, a state that isn't sort of a metropolitan city, you get such tunnel vision about what the issues are in the context of your life that you forget that it could be different in the context of someone else's life and especially because what we only work on local elections. So Library School Board, Water Board, University Board and Community College Boards and Yes State House and State Senate. The issues that you're focusing at these levels is often a little bit more but also a lot less partisan it how keeping water clean how are We getting trash picked up are we funding our roads and our schools? The tangible delivery of those issues makes it so that what it means to be a progressive on them are things like my favorite example here we work for the Coroner Candida in Jefferson County. Colorado which factor more than thirteen hundred counties they'll elect corners he was reading on a progressive platform. The thing that he wanted to ensure was that after death trans people were not being this gendered, which was something that the current coroner was doing, and that is a really important thing because the way that gender is recorded on death certificates affects crime statistics and homicide statistics and suicide statistics. All of which are really important especially as they relate to a community that is disproportionately represented in things like suicide homicide. So as you think about what is the progressive value look like an issue like a coroner's office? That's one of the ways in which you can show up and it was a really interesting way to see the way that our values can trade themselves into progressive policies and all kinds of offices
Mental Health At Work
"One and welcome into deals Metro. Meant Mental Hook podcast. Today I'm joined by Fame Guinness. She the head of what place wellbeing programs at mind, and also the lead of mental health partnership off online. I'm going to be finding out what effort line is. And how it supports people who work in healthcare and education. At same mind here to make sure that anybody with a mental health problem gets the help that they need and we have a goal of support. Your mom million people have good mental health at work twenty, twenty one. So I work in the team, the agencies over for what we do to what would. The prioritizing what place mental health. The must be really interesting at the moment in particular with the changes going on in terms of the way people working. Yeah. Absolutely. We knew that before covid there was already a crisis in terms of what place mental health we knew that the cost of mental health but web to employers was around forty five, billion every year, and we knew that around three hundred thousand people were falling out because mental health say before caved hit were ready seen an issue in relation to what pace mental health but many employees was sought into ready, prioritize it and understand actually. I over ties in what mental health was beautiful business. An when covid hey over the employers and employees see themselves facing a completely new a new situation a new ways of working in terms of people being removed, working hyme kind of losing face to face contact being out with the office environment and so many people that way of weckend has seen significant impact on the mental health. Attempt to that feeling of isolation that feeling that our not being able to kind of balance that work life. Balance Yes. We've seen a real impact on on people's mental health as a result of that Jikei in the Western world. Can we just get that says the stats wasted that because that's a really interesting but he's just through saying before the current crisis Request. What is mental health? What was causing that? So we never many factors m improvement to walk. So the right things that we hear from from employees site for for many people as kind of stigma that still exists in place. So many people feeling like they're unable to be on. The mental health and open vow. That maybe not feeling that. So we know this stigma is still massive coups and the people don't get in the rice who work that has been a huge amount of work done over the cost an. Pasta, fruit work that might have time to taint been doing as Paul that partnership with racing illness really tackle stigma typically in the workplace. So sigma has been a real issue, but we will say night many people that kind of coach environment where they may be able to get the rice of war. And meant to help with us but. Manager whether that's through kind of an HR teams or that kind of lack of trust in being able to kind of reach out. To those people in their organization where where they won't be able to turn to if they felt they could trust you all. So we see that real issue attempts at that Kinda coach apiece and that kind of lack of trust intensive reaching out. SUPPO- but also we know that there are many drivers impacting people and to helping the web play. So we hear about kind of memoir can hours organizational pressures, neca flexibility, lack of work life balance. So all of those things that we know Contri- healthy place and I think. The many years we spoke out health and safety, but the reality is that we've really spoken about the safety side of health and safety. And I always talk about the fact that you know if you're in the office and you know that was a hold on the floor and you fell down and you break your leg and your employees would absolutely make sure that that whole was covered up you can fall down and break your leg again. But we don't necessarily do that for for into health and and and we really do need to work towards creating psychology safe work environment where people feel to help his ties. Yeah. Absolutely. I couldn't agree more I'm what are your thoughts about how we can bring about genuine change the reason being of lack through different situations and it feels like it's sort of cutler ready one place he might get really supported manager who's really open minded with knowledge about to help stuff somewhere else you might get someone who's rudy knots inflexible. An what getting at the moment I, think is. A lot of businesses much of DUA. Hashtag. When it said World Mental Health Day, they might seduce pay lip service to supporting people with mental health issues. But when then when when actually comes to practically supporting people pretty much every day across the boards. It's is really not done so much. So what sort of advice can you give? Yeah, absolutely. So I think stopped by saying we have seen many organizations take some great strides, but we still have a very long way to go and so something that we launched back in. September last year actually with some equipment mental help what commitment and that commitment is assess six standards that we recommend would employees sign up to as the first steps to prioritizing placement health and so what we do with that commitment is we really look at how you tackled causes of mental health work, how you promote well-being for everybody and how you provide support for people have mental health problems. So actually you're covering the whole spectrum in terms of the early intervention prevention side things, but also making sure that you want bicycle for your employees should they need it? So we go over five hundred organizations Steph signed up back. Aw, which is really positive, but we really are encouraging more employees to sign out up to that. So you know like you say we've seen any employees for many years what we would call the low hanging fruit is an awareness raising either. Printing is a hey what we want employees to fundamentally think about is how can better design work for good mental health and that will take time that takes coach change that take some talk stations that takes into people have meant to help prominent than human about their experiences in the web ace. But actually you know you can start if they smoke stepson up to the commitment is a really good framework employers to sign up Jay
The race to a zero-emission world starts now
"We are all here today because the climate countdown has begun. And we are nowhere near where we need to be. Science tells us we must lead global heating to one point five degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. We are on track facility grease at least. Billions of people are all already suffering from our failure to act. Climate Disruption due to our dated addiction to fossil fools. He's causing unprecedented wildfires more intense frequent cyclones, floods, droughts, and other weather extremes. Boksic air pollution is choking our major cities and harming our health. And bow diversity on landon season the growing pressure. No country's immune from the climate crisis. But in every country, it is the poorest and most vulnerable were hardest hit despite having lists to cause the problem. Over the past twenty, five years reach ten percent of the global population as being responsible for more than half of all carbon emissions and the poorest fifty percent were responsible for seven percent of emissions. Ranking justice sending equality of this scale is a cancer. If we don't take now. Sensory may be one of humanity's lust. The covid nineteen pandemic has laid bare the fundamental injustice inequality of our societies. Upheaval of these pandemic presents an opportunity to chart a new course when it can address every aspect of the climate crisis at on. Easterly shows that when we grab such moments we succeed. We can build a safer fairer more resilient worlds, but we need to move quickly. That is why I'm urging government. So take six climate positive actions to recover better together. Invest in Green, jobs. Not. allowed. Polluting Industries especially coal. And fossil fuel subsidies and the price on carbon. They climate risk into account in all financial and policy decisions work together in solidarity and most important leave. No one behind. These is the course of action that thousands of these city states. Regions. University isn't investors are already choosing by committing to net zero emissions by twenty fifty at the latest. Data moving to protect people and planet's momentum is building. Cities and regions with the carbon footprint greater than the United States and companies with revenues of more than eleven point four, trillion US dollars. If now committee to net zero emissions by two, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. That's double. The number from when this initiative was launched at the Climate Action Summit in two, thousand, nine, nine. Likewise investors managing over four trillion dollars have joined the race to zero. This number also more than doubled since the initiative was first launched at the same time. But it is still necessary for governments to create the tax and regulatory frameworks that will further stimulate climate action by the private sector unions announced plans to cut its emissions at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty and chief Clem neutrality by twenty. Fifty. And China as announced its intention to become carbon neutral before twenty sixty. And count on these and other mainly meters to present before cop twenty, six concrete plans and policies that will bring the world carbonaro throwing divide twenty-fifty. We must make sure that each country each city company bank and Interest Organization as a transition plan to reach zero net emissions. We also need to see much greater efforts to build resilience in vulnerable countries which to cause climate change, but they are the worst impacts. In the coastal Delta's the islands of the Pacific and the billion and the islands such as the efficacy trial region, we must have people of that to climate impacts as they recover from covid. Nineteen. I call on developed countries to meet their commitment to mobilize one hundred billion US dollars ear for mitigation adaptation and resilience in developing countries. We must work to create the conditions needed for a massive mobilization of funds. Also from financial institutions and private investors, we must keep building climate ambition. On the fifth anniversary of the agreement in December leaders from government business and civil society will gather online to do just that. We need to kick start the race to the Glasgow Climate Conference in Twenty Twenty. One To those who have already joined the race. I. Applaud you. But they also asked you to the Mar and much faster. You have raised your ambition and your commitment. We need you now to also raise your voices and push governments to do better. Especially, those we meet the most. To those yet to join my message is simple. We can only win the race to zero together. So I urge you. To get on boards, the countdown has begun.
The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP
"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.
Interview with Khalifeh Al Jadda, Director of Core Data Science at The Home Depot
"Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host Kathleen Mulch. And I'm your host bottled schmelzer Our Guest today is Kelly fellow who is the director of core data science at the Home Depot Hai Khalifa. Thank you so much for joining us on AI today. Hi guys. Thanks for having me. It's my pleasure. Yeah, welcome Khalifa and thanks so much for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and she current role at the Home Depot. Sure. So my name is Kelly fell Jetta. I have PhD degree in computer science. I started my career in data science back in June 2013 as a PhD intern at Careerbuilder, which is one of the largest job boards in the US and the my career with Career Builder actually took extended to until 2018 during that I was actually leading the search and recommendation data science team where I was lucky actually need to get involved early enough and building the semantic search engine for the company and after that building an AI based recommendation engine dead. So the semantic search engine actually is the one that has been leveraged by the company for their be to be sort of business and the day I guess recommendation engine which we built their home is now serving millions of job-seekers on the BTC side of the company. So very proud of that Journey with Career Builder in 2018. I joined Home Depot and I joined as a senior manager, of course recommendation data science team under the online business of Home Depot, I build the team and we actually worked very hard and the last two years to build again state-of-the-art e-commerce recommendation engine for Home Depot, very proud of what we accomplished as a team found in May this year twenty-twenty. I was promoted to director of course data science in my organization. Now, I have the court search data science team called recommendation wage. Science team and the visual AI team our focus our my route Focus now is as the name suggests to improve the core functionality of homedepot.com home from search and documentation perspective. So we work to improve sexual even see we work to make our recommendation more and more personalized and relevant to our customers and guide our customers and kind of give them the experience which they get in the physical store as part of our interconnected experience initiative. So that's overall. What am I roll includes now at Home Depot and I'm very proud and excited actually about the team that we have built for the core data science at Home Depot on the work that we have done that for the e-commerce, you know, that's that's fantastic. And you know, I I really have to give a plug for the talk that you gave at the data for a i week online conference because you you showed you age. And about thirty forty minutes really walking in Fairly good detail how the Home Depot actually does its product recommendation system. We showed how the system works. There was some math in there, which is great all the time a little bit of code more math than code showing how it was the song and it was fantastic. I mean and so, you know for those who are listening if you really wanted to to dive deeper and see this the presentation you can the the conference is available for free. So if you go to data a icon did a i c o n f c o n f, and look for a Khalifa's presentation page, it's on the e-commerce system and talks about the recommendation system. It's just fantastic and I love seeing it because you know, I have to say I'm you know, probably like many of us here in the United States now have a big Home Depot customer feel. I feel like I go there like every other week, especially, you know, we're all at home these days so you can't help but notice the things that you need to write a fix and repair right and they even do some stuff outside job. And it's it's it's the season of the deer kind of eating everything and Wrecking everything. So so I think it's fantastic what maybe maybe for our listeners here? If you can provide a little bit of insight you talked a little bit about the recommendation system. I know that it's really hard to we don't have slides here on a podcast that's going to be hard to share. But you were talking about solving challenging e-commerce problems using the power of data science as a Todd the title of the talk. So maybe you can share some of the insights that you shared at the conference around the recommendation system round recommendation systems in general maybe around the relationship between data science and e-commerce, which you know, maybe people haven't thought about that deeply Yeah, sure sure. And first of all, thank you for highlighting the talk. Absolutely. It was actually a great conference overall. So I congratulate you guys on the success of the conference just enjoyed being part of it. Thanks for having me back to the question about the talk and the relationship between the e-commerce and and the data science absolutely data size is transforming retail to the boss really on the e-commerce side and how we do things and the e-commerce and they use cases I presented in my talk. We're actually real use cases of things that we implemented at Home Depot on faith and that changed actually How We Do recommendation on our websites to make them more relevant and to make them as they mentioned earlier and more personalized to our customers need. So
"board" Discussed on Board Game Impact
"Board Game Arena where you cannot make a mistake. It won't back poor choices. You can just make poor choices right and so rather than my buddy who's trying to create gold and is like there's no way for me to create gold I can't do it. This won't let me do it rather than me being able to sit there and like talk him through A. Okay. So if you take this action the next turn, you'll be able to do what you WanNa do or Oh, if you take this other action. It will kind of do that right so it doesn't eliminate some of that player interaction. Of. Seeing what your opponent is doing in real time and being able to give that feedback of Oh, you're trying to do this. This is a better way to achieve that goal. Bike right. That is something that I find really helpful and games especially when I'm. Learning a new game. Is To hassle and be like, Oh, you know, Oh, you really are trying to like this is your end goal here steps you need to take to get there. Right. That's the thing that I think I miss an online gaming more than anything especially in teaching and learning new games online. Yeah and we'll get the teaching and learning real TV now Josh, we have to do that episode. There is no way around it. The fact that we brought it up like six times. So I think we need I think we've covered online. But we there's another topic that we absolutely need to cover. Because, honestly, there's a ton of content that for you and I comes out of this next one. that. I will play more games I will play more games you wanNA hear about and same with you. But that experience can be very different in that is conventions. Yes Yeah The conventions for those who aren't aware just to put it out there. There are four game conventions and if you didn't know that look them up because they are awesome. But they can be very different summer smaller. So you can have just like a local con with a couple of hundred people. or You could have a still small in the grand scheme of things board game, Geek con either spring, which has about fifteen hundred people or fall, which has like five thousand people that's in Dallas. or You could go all the way up to the largest convention in the US at least two Gen con. A where you can go hop across the pond and go to. Essen. That being said, there's different types of conventions. BG CON is typically more open play less scheduled things. Where Gen con is yes. There's an open play area. But the entire experiences across the city and you will go and you'll get tickets and you'll have event after event after event at different venues across the city. Of Indianapolis or when you if you go to s in there yes. All the game stuff but there's also other stuff because it's also like this festival type thing going on. and. So just know that like there's a lot of stimuli stimuli going on and what kind of convention makes a big difference. and. Now, we're going to dig into that. Yeah..

"Rush cast episode fifty two. I'm not Gupta and mega ball with in training exam around the corner where back with a new episode after a long break. But don't forget that you can always go back and listen to old episodes. We've covered over three hundred questions. We'll also have a little update at the end of the episode. But for now let's jump right into some new questions. Your first patient is a sixty four year old woman with the history of hypertension migraines and Paulie Myalgia Gramatica. She presents with the right side of the headache that has been progressively worsening over the past three days in this feels different from her prior migraines the pain worsens with eating and when she brushes her hair her review systems as positive for fatigue and partial vision loss in the right eye in the. She's febrile to thirty eight degrees Celsius under exam demonstrates tenderness to patient over the right temple. Visual Acuity is twenty forty on the left and twenty eight on the right. What's the most appropriate next up in? The patient's management is at a Ivy methylprednisolone be obtained. Isr and CRP to confirm diagnosis see obtained temporal artery biopsy or D. Oral prednisone so they're clearly describing temporal arteritis AKA giant cell. Arteritis here in our testing you on the diagnosis and treatment. The most appropriate next step in this patient with vision loss is answer choice a administering IV methylprednisolone. Let quickly go over the other answer. Choices answer choice. B OBTAINING ESPN Syrup. Email to confirm. The diagnosis is something. That should happen. But the patient has vision laws so immediate treatment is the next best. Step also normal. Espn CRP John. Rule out the diagnosis answer choice. See obtaining a temporal artery biopsy is also something that should be considered as part of this patient's management plan but we definitely don't want to wait for the results to start treating here. Dilling treatment can lead to a reversible vision loss. Answer Choice de giving the patient. Prednisone is an option for peace without signs of vision loss and as a brief review of giant cell arteritis. This is the most common vascular in the US and it affects women more than men usually presents in the elderly and almost never before the age of fifty patients present with low grade. Fever weight loss headache scalp tenderness vision loss and jaw jaw. Qualification is the clinical feature that is most likely associated with the positive temporal artery biopsy vision loss is the most concerning clinical feature in these patients and the onset is abrupt. Emerging Treatment is always warranted treatment. As mega mentioned is with IV methylprednisolone and. That's given for the first three days and then it's followed with oral prednisone if your patient is unable to take glucocorticoid than total Azuma or methotrexate are other options for treatment as you're admitting this patient for IV steroids and putting yourself in the back the nurse tells you about an uncomfortable appearing forty two year old man who presents with lower back pain that started acutely while lifting a couch. The pain is reading the right poster Lotto calf. He denies any Ballard Bladder and continents on examination. He has decreased planter reflection at the right ankle and numbness of the right lateral foot disk.

Post your laterally and impinge the next lower nerve root as across the disk on its path to the neural Raymond. Our patient has decreased plantar reflection and numbness of the lateral foot all signs pointing to s one ridicule apathy. So the correct answer here is choice de l five s one other signs of an S. one radiculopathy or decreased sensation. Along the poster Lotto Calf and decreased Achilles reflects a positive straight luxuries test has a sensitivity of over ninety percent for SCIATICA but a low specificity a positive cross-strait lake test which is pain in the lower back reading down the affected leg when the contra lateral leg is raised. Actually as a high specificity for diagnosing Outta let's go for the other answer choices and their respective distributions choice. L Two l three herniation will cause decreased sensation of the medial thion weakness of hip lection choice. B L three or four herniation results in decrease in station of the medial foot and weakness of knee extension decrease than station between the first and second toe and weakness of ankle doors. Affection can be seen with choice. C L four l five disk herniation certainly worth committing these distributions to memory. If you haven't already moving on which of the following is most likely to be seen powder renal syndrome. Is it a arterial or congestion?

Syndrome is the causative acute kidney injury in patients with acute or chronic liver disease. I feel like patients with a paddle. Renal Syndrome probably have his Logically normal kidneys choice B. But I'm not certain I know why the other answer choices are incorrect. Let's discuss the other answer choices and delve further into powder renal syndrome choice. A arterial or congestion is incorrect because an arena syndrome. The Renal arterials are constricted rather than dilated and congested Reno. Arterial dilation and congestion is actually associated with C. H.

Andrew Thompson aldosoro and pathway causing systemic music constriction that is most prominent in the kidneys. This causes a decline in renal perfusion and decrease Chia far but his logically. The kidneys are not affected and can function normally deliver function. Improves POWDER RIEDEL? Syndrome is usually precipitated by acute insult. Such as the SBP or GI bleeding it presents with increased serum craton with minimal protein area and low sodium. Excretion in the setting of acute or chronic liver disease I'll aguirre is also typically present. This is also a diagnosis of exclusion other causes of Reno injury should be excluded before settling on Hypolito Renal Syndrome treatment for her powder. Renal Syndrome is focused on improvement of liver function. Definitive treatment. However would be liver transplant.

"In today's episode of board game impact, I'm looking into board. Game related New Year's resolutions. You're listening to board game impact podcast. We're looking board related topics that way, you can know the impact that they may have for your gaming group. My name is Bruce Brown, and I'm your host and outside of this channel leadership educator. And I'm working on my PHD in human resource development with the goal of helping people and organizations unlock their potential. I pull in this background in this research, focus to help build this content for your benefit. You can connect with me on board game geek, as Bruce Brown on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and patriotic as board game impact so many families, and many people have some different hallmark things that they do around this time of year. So if you're listening to this before New Year's, or after new years, a lot of this can still get pulled in to actually help enhance this time of the year or to set you off on the right foot, potentially. And so that's why I wanted to put this content out there because this is such a important time for many people around the world, specifically for many different areas around the. World, people have different traditions that they do to metaphorically start the year off on the right foot. Some examples may include a champagne toast knit midnight. I know that my brother and sister in law. Do this one where every year, they go out and get the newest release of their favorite champagne, and they always, always, always make sure to have a champagne toast. And they actually saved that bottle and the cork from year to year as a little memento of all the things that they've done from the past year. But then also to save that as a memory now, I'm living in the south and for many people around here, actually having black eyed peas on New Year's day sometimes with some corn bread is deemed as giving. Good luck for the year ahead, some different traditions around the world, burning paper stuff scarecrows in Ecuador or burning effigy and Panama in Spain. It's good luck to eat exactly twelve grapes. Not eleven thirteen or more or less. Exactly twelve grapes. There's this really cool thing in. Olivia where people make what they call a sweet coin which is similar to a New Orleans, king cake, from Louisiana for mardi gras for, for the mardi gras cake. The king cake, what they do is they hide this little plastic baby in it. And if you get this, that slice, it's deemed bring, you good luck as well as you have to provide the cake for the next year, a sweet coin in Bolivia, same idea, minus the baby ad in money coins. And if you get a slice that has a coin in it, then that's going to bring you good luck and you have good fortune for the year ahead, some curious, if there's anything that you're doing to start the year off on the right foot or things you've done the past that seem to make a difference, or we're just fun. But the real focus of today's on different topic, and that is on New Year's resolutions and many people around the world start off their year by setting goals for themselves to work towards in the upcoming year to be more fit to go to the gym more. More eat less in bad things. Eat more good things. Some people though for our hobby for board game set and board game related goals for themselves for the year and what I wanted to do in today's episode is really focused in on that and focus in on some things that you might wanna think about doing for the year ahead. So again, regardless of you're listening to this before New Year's or after new years. These are things you can still add to your list to try and do this upcoming year because you've got a whole year to get it done. And many of these, it's not about having it happened on a weekly basis is just about doing it. Overall, a hopefully this is helpful these examples are going to include some different things in terms of the quantity of plays different types of experiences things related to the hobby, but I'm not gonna leave it just that I would be doing you a disservice. What I'm actually trying to do is present options to you show some research on New Year's resolutions in general, and then offer some tips for six. That are shown to actually make these things help helpful and actually happen, because sadly spoiler alert majority of nears solutions, don't get completed around the world. And so I want to see you in the top percent. That does if you're choosing to do any of these okay so board game goals, the first section I briefly mentioned about is quantity based goals. There's one of three ways of this kind of plays out the first way is in which it's number of repeated plays of a certain game or certain amount of games that the total number of games that you might play in a year. That does not mean playing that one game a whole bunch of times, but just total amount in place or variation between Columbine column B, so the mo- one of the most common things you'll see on board game geek, is a thing called a ten by ten what it is. It's committing yourself to playing ten games that you're gonna identify most likely at the beginning of the

"Welcome to board game impact podcast where we look into board card dice and other game related topics of interest. So that way, you can know their potential impact for when they hit the table for your gaming group today, I'm joined by special guest who has interviewed more than fifty board game designers for her book further. Love of games a book for board gamers. Welcome back to another episode of board game impact. My name is Bruce Brown and he can find me on board game geek as Bruce Brown, and you can also find me on all the social media sites is board game impact today. We have a very special guest joining us for the show, can you? Please introduce yourself and tell the listeners had to connect with your work. Yes. My name is Aaron dean on the author of four. The love of board games a book for board gamers, which is now on Kickstarter to connect with me, you can reach out to me on Facebook by just searching my name, Aaron dean and the best way to kind of stay updated with my work is the joy in our Facebook groups for the love of board game stash book, and for the love of board games dash podcast. And then we also have a website under that same name for the love of board games dot com. Awesome. So Erin, you've got this amazing book coming out. You've also made a video documentary on YouTube, that is called the board game, boom that came out in two thousand seventeen so can you please tell our listeners more about your content, and inspired? You create these awesome things. So, basically, the main thing that has been inspired me with these projects is basically. I am just a huge board gamer these both the documentary, I created and the book, I've written are huge passion. Projects for me. I find it fun to talk about board games because I'm a gamer myself, I play board games all the time. I run a weekly board game night with some Saint Louis natives and yeah, it's just been great. And it's been really awesome to connect with some really cool people in the industry, fantastic. So in your book, can you tell the listeners about the content of the book because I think it's pretty unique. Yeah. So this book interviews over. Fifty board. Game designers everywhere from Bruno Catolica Jamie, Steg Meyer, Richard Garfield a lot of big names in the industry, and I interview them because a lot of people play these games and they don't really know about the people behind the games. They don't know about who these people are that actually created them. And I always find it interesting interesting to hear the back story of these types of games. So, you know, there wasn't really any book out there that was exploring that. So I'm like, I'm going to have to do it myself. So I interviewed all these designers asked them about their history with board gaming how they got into designing games games. They designed that never got published some of the creative processes behind their most popular games, and so on and so forth and what I found is very interesting. And I think others will find it interesting too. That's been tastic. So I actually did some research, as well and your. Absolutely right. You hit the nail on the head with the subject matter of your book in that the content that's out there right now is really essentially, hey, here's some tips on designing your game. So you've got the white box of game design which gives you components, and some different run throughs that you can play with to kind of get that creative process going, you've got the cabal guide to game design which interviews these people. But from the perspective of these are the things you need to think about right. So it's focused on the content what I think is really unique. And that you just talked about, is that you're interviewing these designers who have been interviewed in some of these other books, or wrote forwards and some of these books, but from a very different perspective. And that is capturing their story, which I think we all have a story and not all of us tell it, and I think that your book is doing a lot of really good Justice to you that I've read the chapter from Richard Garfield and Richie talks about some of the struggles going back and forth between different designs and somehow it took maybe ten years for some of these projects, a launch or launched into something never expected. But it's. Really capturing that essence of that story. And I got to ask, how do you go into these interviews and capture that narrative that's going on? And then write it in a way to actually hold onto that spirit of that story. Yes. So, you know, I went to school for video production. So a lot of the work, I was doing in school was, I was interviewing people to get stories on film. So this is nothing different from that except it's in written form, rather than video form. So I know how to write story, eliciting questions and to get that story out of people, you know, the stories out of people where it provokes a thought it provokes a memory a moment in their life that people, you know, otherwise when it know about. So, I guess, to answer your question I, I was just, you know, I know how to get stories out of people by framing the right questions and kind of framing and away. Hey, where it does elicit stories. And then, you know, I've written the current sample chapter. That's on my Kickstarter is written in third person. I've now decided after talking to my editor that I've hired that it would be better to make it first person. So it's really truly coming from the designers in their own words. And I think people are going to really appreciate
