"Funnel you could probably outsource that content because it's not specifically talking about your products or services that can be something. That's you know research but done by a third party now. Exactly i'm gonna throw in the the covert bomb in here. Which is the world was reshuffled. It's distributed world. We're all working from home. There is no such thing as an office anymore. At least for now. So do i actually need to have in house. Employees be local to my office. Can you basically start taking people that would have been freelancers because of their geography and start bringing them onto your team and having them house now that we all have the infrastructure to work remotely. How much did that reshuffle. The deck in terms of the cost of labor and where you can source for writers totally. Yeah there's so many ways to think about it but the short answer to your question is yes. You can absolutely have an house people not in your local area or your local time zone for instance. I'm in hawaii. i'm elliot one here on our team. We have people based in all across the us and europe on most time zones because we have find some time zones. There's a couple of ways to think about it in that you can on the one hand you can often source some roles other places and save a lot of money but the other flipside of that is you can also pay people at other countries higher salaries and get a lot more value from it too so it kind of depends on how you look at it or how you want to set it up. I think the key to understand. Is that remote. Work is fundamentally different. Because it forces people to work a synchronous lead so you if i have a writer and editor who need to collaborate on something. But they're on completely different time zones. How do we get them to work together. And how do we get the hand off from one for the other two look as smoothly as possible and to work as smoothly as possible without having those people actually talk directly in real time. That's always a big challenge in one of the reasons why most enterprises wanted an in-office culture. Not only does it help build the culture it's great for retention but you can pass learnings on and have informal chats that. Are you know not something that has conducted by slack. You don't have to have everything be meeting. You could poke your head over the cubicle wall and ask a quick question. So is there a lot of loss in terms of the quality of content or the speed at which contents being produced now that we're primarily virtual..

How To Create Your Own ROI-Driven B2B Content Strategy

"Live in a more distributed world because everybody was forced into their house. It's a more digital age to talk to me about how that is impact. The creation of content and how people are staffing out their content production teams definitely so personally for autho didn't affect us a whole lot and that's because one of the drums banging for a while that i think like the rest of the world has kind of had to light. Come up wake up to a hard way is that i think more marketers sent a focus on like creativity and ingenuity and those things are good because it comes more natural to those types of people. But i think that they need to be more process oriented. And i think about operations kinda hat or the operations might set something that's often lacking and so what i mean by. That is the way we think of content seo and all. This stop is a huge factory. Right where you have. It's like a manufacturing process where you have specialized roles and you have an seo person or a strategy person working with a writer who's also working with an editor who's also working with an account manager designer. And he's i since collaborating a synchronous -ly across time zones and everything else and until you have that infrastructure built outs you're gonna struggle hitting both quality and scale meeting. Most people like for example companies can find one good writer but they can't find like hundred writers or they can't they do ten articles. A month of began do one hundred articles a month and so usually one of those things breakdown when you try to hit longer. Bigger scale usually quality starts to drop. And that's usually an indication of you don't have the processes and figured out you have the team and infrastructure figured out

"The other thing you could also do if not a subject matter expert internally. Your in house is also customers too. So let's take an example of like a website and like redesigned website. Or how do we migrate. A website at not lose our seo rankings. Because we want to make sure things like erl's aren't changing and all that all that kind of stuff comes up perfect example a beach to just interview customers to so have writers do customers and what you're trying to do is pair like the seo data that you've research the stuff that's showing up at surplus that you should be writing about. So semantic key words common questions people also ask question and all that kind of stuff with actual customer insights or house insights to create more like a well rounded piece of content that brings in that nuance and subtlety. So the takeaway here is that you might find a great writer. Somebody that's good at putting the right words on the page. But they don't necessarily understand the topic and if that's the case it doesn't mean that they can't write about it. What you wanna do is connect them with some sort of an expert source so they can basically repurpose the information that the expert knows as opposed to just taking what's already been written which is what they're competing against. Now the question. I have for you here. This is something that we're struggling with. You mentioned migrating a website we just migrated the podcast. My other podcast from squarespace to wordpress were expanding the site. We moved from one page per interviewed one page per episodes. We got a lot more content. But we're thinking about creating more blog. Content more written format as opposed to repurposing are podcasts. The notion of virology just creating the content and hoping that it ranks is one marketing strategy but content is more than just. Seo right it can be an organic growth channel. It also could be something that you paid us. Indicate how do you make your b- to be content go viral totally so in the first episode. We talked about. You should only compete for key words that you can win and one of the points that's relevant here is that if i'm doing research for something i already should know how i'm gonna promote. Its before i start writing us. So for instance. If i need to rank a piece of content that needs ten referring domains i need to have a pretty good idea of. I'm gonna get those ten referring domains before i create the pizza content and what the helps me do is it helps me bring in things to the content that i know we're going to be successful. For instance can i bring an proprietary data. Can we run a custom survey. Can we interview someone. That i know who was then gonna help promote it for me. Can we create custom illustrations or video or other assets that are going to be make it much easier to promote after the back and so i think that's the key is to understand content isn't just a two thousand article content is like this multifaceted thing where there's there's quotes. There's images design. There's video the video might be examples. The video might go into more detail on a subject. Like what are all the things that i can bring together and this one piece of content. That are going to help me. Ben turnaround and pitch a to journalists. Ask another company to share. Its lead into a webinar that we're running on the same topic. Run ads to this if add. What kind of ads are they gonna be carousel style. Facebook is going to be video snippets on facebook..

Knicks added to continue our conversation yesterday. We talked about some content strategy specifically focused on to be making sure that you could actually drive our y. and the takeaway from that conversation was you have to understand who you're targeting with what keywords make sure that you can actually rank for them and then you have to make sure that you're using the data that you're collecting from your seo strategies to retarget to get people to subscribe to your newsletter making sure that all the other marketing activities are being fed by your top of funnel activities. Own talk a little bit today. About specifically tackling the sir and not only creating content that is going to rank but also understanding what drives virology talk to me about your strategy for producing for surp- topping viral. Bb content definitely so be to be content. Tends to be a couple of things it tends to be really dry and boring number one. It tends to be technical and complex or overly complex attends to be awesome. Podcast definitely. Yeah yeah well. Of course this one but unfortunately most. Bb contents like fanis buckets. And that's the challenge. Is that you make something that's too generic or too dry or too boring. It's not going to resonate and all that stuff we're doing all the contents supper doing.

"They're more reliant on Like the machine and building out the machine in the factory and the assembly line of yes. Yellow person works for the strategy person who hands it off to the writer who hands off the editor transit off to optimize organs of the producer. There's like this. This is very detailed assembly. Line very kind of old school manufacturing mentality of Operation that i think is really important in today's environment and not enough marketers and marketing teams are strong in that area. That makes sense so if you look at what money dot com is doing is either ads all the time. So it's hard to escape them. Are there two or three things that they've embrace that has helped their content marketing thrive. Yeah definitely i think again. It goes back to from the very beginning to a very strong focus on conclude their customer. And why so like who. What segments convert the best Who has the highest lifetime value as a segment and figuring and then backing that into What likes key categories for example. Should we even be publishing in the very beginning because they could be publishing on everything and anything like how do we actually focus a narrow down from there then figuring out okay well how do we actually target keywords in spaces that we can win and this is something i like to like arbonne but again it's kind of an old cliche but like measure twice cut once in today's like competitive surp- environment The outside results. Let's say if you look at click through rates on a search result page. Let's say sixty seventy eighty percent go to like the top three or four results. It's not good enough to like the top position. Eight on a certain you might as well like not even It sounds good. Because you're on the first page but you're probably getting like a sliver of any traffic whereas if you can get up until like the top five top four top three. It becomes heavily. Skewed where you're getting all of a sudden fifty sixty seventy percent of the action so if if you're applying not to like a much broader Content strategy where you are publishing in a high quantity. It's super super important that you're making sure that you're publishing Not just like on the biggest keywords in your space or the ones with the most commercial intent yes those things are important but they might take year sexually a to rank for so so what. What are we targeting. Why meeting like let's actually create content that we know we can win and a renault get rank for within the next six months. Because that's going to give us the biggest boost to then kind of stair step are way up up to that other competitive stuff you. I love that piece of advice. Because i've been working with a lot of bb sas clients looking at how to leverage content marketing in. And you're right. I mean you you wanna win in particular keywords or phrases because there's so much competition out there that it's gonna take you forever to rank for the top keywords. That's just not a strategy. That's gonna produce. In the short term. Both auto hinted added a little bed. But what do you see. As the biggest mistakes that bb companies make when it comes to content marketing. I suspect the list could be fairly extensive. Definitely not so. That's one that we just touched on is competing for the wrong things the wrong times so knowing that it's kind of a chicken and egg problem up as an example. Notables really small we acquired it about a year ago. Traffic was trending down. I think we're at like five thousand monthly visits when we acquired it so super small one of the first problems that we're facing okay. Well we can't go after the biggest keywords in our space right now Long long term we can but it might take. You know two three years realistically over terrain for that stuff. So in the short term we something else and we need to take a different approach and go after keywords can rank for and now we're up to like thirty forty thousand a month In terms of monthly traffic and it was just this whole stairs project okay. We're gonna go after this this less competitive staff. I because we know we can win there. And we're going to rank while for it and once our websites bigger once we have more legs once we were content which we have more top authorities there as we can come back and right that competitive stuff the other big one we checked on already too which is operations marketers marketers. Are marketers. don't have an issue with creativity. That's all that's why we do this. That's why we're all like in this in this field to have an issue with the processes and all the boring stuff all the operations all the role specialization. All the how do you coordinate. Handoff sprott with a writer in one time zone to an editor at another time zone especially in today's environment where everything's a synchronous like. How do you iron out. All those little kinks. Because that's that's where the ball gets dropped like one person you might have a writer who's really good or you might have. A market is really good They have to hand it off to someone three four time zones away if not more than that person has to hand it off to somebody else. How you're actually doing that to make sure this persons waking up and is ready to go and has everything they need and has their you know their stuff completed by the person before them without those those two people having to jump on zoom every five minutes. I think that's the that's the challenge from blocking and tackling standpoint that a lot of companies are facing today because they are trying to ramp up content and do all the stuff in the absence of conventions and conferences and other things But yet we're all forced to again. Be more reliant on a synchronous communication. So we've talked about the importance of content and how to approach it. I want to explore a few other areas including building beeby content team generating ideas distribution how companies approach content production on one hand they could use freelancers agencies or contractors but if they want people who drink the proverbial kool-aid many companies want in house writers. So where should be to be company. Start when it comes to creating content for sure. Yeah i think it's important to realize that they all have their own like strengths and weaknesses. So there's no right or wrong answer necessarily as you mentioned with drinking the kool aid internal people usually best for all the intangibles so they understand the unique point of view they understand the differentiation positioning of Product versus other ones in the space. The understand on that stuff intimately. Their problem is usually outlets And production so internal people usually get caught up with meetings and slack and whatever proofreading someone else's presentation get pulled in all these different directions that you're not able to publish a ton of stuff on the back of a lot of in house writers unless you're spending a ton of money on it because it can get Sam expensive as you can imagine so the the challenge is always well freelancers offers. You that flexibility. You can wrap up and down if you wanna do a big concept. Push free six months and then switch gears down the road. It's easy to kind of like bilbao team out. Let it run for a little bit and then wrap down over time. You don't have to deal with the same You know internal hr headaches and other things to like people up and down. the problem. freelancers is is usually getting everyone on the same page and making sure you have consistency across whatever you know. Three four five ten twenty people who are all external and have their own things in our own lives and their own clients and That's incredibly challenging. Because you you spend a ton of time. That isn't always account for on product management on editing on things that are like the the soft intangibles to get all those people together agencies offer a different approach of like usually get skill sets. You might not have internally so for example when someone hires are agency they get strategy people get. Seo people they get not just the writers and editors but also designers video people again trying to hire all those roles externally or excuse me internally would be super cost prohibitive and not always like realistic agencies tend to be more expensive on the surface but again if you if you account for some of those things like the extra manpower so to speak of management everything internally it becomes expensive so i guess the point is where are you at in terms of resources in terms of internal team already so do you internally have the people in place to manage a team of writers if not then you're probably better off going with something like an agency conversely if your if your problem is more bottom of the funnel about top of the funnel meaning if your problem is more conversions and and doing things that speak the language of the customer and creating case studies and other content around that episode Usually better with internal people because it's easier to get them on board with that as opposed to external agencies.

"That may or not may not be true of many. Bbc's companies have guzzi embraced content over the past eighteen months content. Marketing took on more importance when conferences disappear and many companies scrambled to not only create content but great content that engaged educated encouraged and made an impact as the ceo of ward -able. Brad smith has a front row seat in the world of content marketing and it should be noted that his front row seat is located in hawaii which is pretty sweet place. Sorry and it should be noted that his front row seat is located in hawaii which is a pretty sweet place to operate. Welcome to marketing spark brad. Beg your mark davis. Let's start by talking about the content marketing landscape over the past eighteen months as hunting creator. It has been fascinating to see how many brands have jumped on the content bandwagon. Them successfully and some of them appear to be going through the motions and creating content for the sake of content. What's your take on. How landscape has evolved since cove emerged in march of two thousand twenty. Yeah definitely it's I would definitely agree with employees and if anything it almost like things got accelerated The trends underlying trends were already there. I think they were sped up and made even more intense so you see things like huge publishers. For instance doing Affiliate contact so you see big websites getting better and what that does is it kind of raises the bar. And so not only. Do you have more competition for it. Like your direct competition that everyone thinks about more competition indirectly. So you're now ranking against amazon or forbes or whatever if you have nothing to do business wise with those people you're competing in a sense of Of of search engine rankings the actual results on the page Other issues to like google actively taking spots away through a few different ways so one. They're doing more paid listings on search result page to they're doing Instant answers so what they're doing essentially as like scraping your content if you if you search for like how to make an old fashioned. You're gonna see a recipe show up and it's going to be scraped from some website. That's already ranking. Someone's going to get their answer. They're going to get the recipe and they don't have to actually click into the page read. whatever it is that's on the site and so you know if that if that person's monetize ads or something else than than they're in trouble Jim all these kind of like issues. That are all coming to ahead. And what we're seeing is a A greater divergence between like the to have the have nots for lack of a better expression. Like the the amount of focus and attention going to like the first few positions on a page. When you're trying to break something is becoming much greater. You might see a more skewed landscape whereas anything else. That's not good enough or is just kind of mediocre or average to your point It's almost just getting. It's just getting pumped out into the black hole that that isn't getting seen or click their shared or linked to or whatever so it sounds like content marketing has become a more challenging landscape. And i'm curious about what has surprised you what's separated companies that have thrived amid fierce competition for eyeballs. What are they doing and do you have any examples of brands that are doing content marketing. Well what's a really good question A definitely a few examples of companies. Doing it well. I think one thing that has surprised me is how much big websites are still able to leverage their brand and their domain authority to rank for things in categories that it might not have that much to do with And so you see this a lot again going back to like a publishing example or affiliates faces just as point of comparison where you might have huge websites like a forbes or someone else ranking for something like you know invoicing software reviews or something just completely kinda random. But you would. You wouldn't think would have anything to do with that. And they're they're starting to rank really well with relatively average content. So that's kind of like the bad news. I think in a way where it's it's kind of like a trend. I don't love to see. Because again. I don't i don't wanna see poor content be rewarded that greatly but the good news. Is you drove a lot of like You know smaller smaller and sense of of where they're starting but smaller staffs companies being able to contact really well and go deeper so if that example if the ford example is there going like broad but shallow. I think what you're saying. Today is a lot of really good companies being able to go really really deep in their categories or in their spaces and still do really well now. Not sure if this is a fair question but what do you see as the keys to breaking through when everyone is pumping out content is at quality content. And i put quality in quotation marks. Because it's a very subjective. Kind of thing is it. Seo does it depend on having the right strategic plan it is. Is it a matter of luck coming. What some of the variables that that you see as critical when you're trying to merge Amid a content so nami yeah definitely. I think it's i like to think of it as about scorecard so you have The brand and the website strength over all that and you have the strategy and the strategic kind of Strategic viewpoint behind it going why you have the content itself so how it's written whether or not there are subject matter experts Included in that were not again. You can tell pretty quickly if something's kind of generic watered down or if it's really interesting and nuanced and kind of balanced and complex Then you have just beyond actual writing itself. You have things like You know multimedia so images podcasts. Video house happening included in that. Then you have the actual. Mary staff so everything from topical authority to the actual keywords are researching to link building late building. Pr distribution. So i if you think about it. The the good news is if you think about all this stuff like how marketing and advertising and promotion used to be back in the sixties. It's pretty similar. So like i just give you an example distribution. What we're doing today isn't that different. It's just kind of like an new medium. I think the important point is figuring out how you get all the things the lineup. So we're talking about how you distribute content Are you working are. Jpr teams working together with content seems to have advertising teams working with Content teams like the disconnects are often where things fall the better. You can align all those things Typically the greater success we see with like less than the larger companies. It's it's interesting. That coordination and having a strategic plan is so important because many companies look at content as simply creating content and then they forget about seo distribution identifying connected with influencers. so there's so many variables that go into content marketing success that a lot of companies. Just don't take into account. I guess what i'm curious about. Who's doing content. While i mean really well is their content that you wanna read because it's because it's interesting or compelling and you can you can recommend or suggest one of your clients as an example of a company that really is standing out from the crowd. Yeah that's a good question. I was gonna say a loaded question for sure. Because i can just sit here. Mentioned all of our work.

How SolarWinds Hacked the Justice, State, Treasury, Energy and Commerce Departments

"Last year in perhaps the most audacious cyber attack in history russian military. Hackers sabotaged a tiny piece of computer code buried in a popular piece of software called solar winds as we first reported in february the hidden virus spread to eighteen thousand government and private computer networks by way of one of those software updates. We all take for granted after it was installed russian agents when rummaging through the digital files of the us departments of justice state treasury energy and commerce among others and for nine months they had unfettered access to top level communications court documents even nuclear secrets. I think from a software engineering perspective. It's probably fair to say that this is the largest and most sophisticated attack. The world has ever seen brad. Smith is president of microsoft. He learned about the hack. After the presidential election this past november by that time the stealthy intruders had spread throughout the tech giant's computer network and stolen some of its proprietary source code used to build it software products more alarming. How the hackers got in piggybacking on a piece of third party. Software used to connect manage and monitor computer networks. What makes this so momentous. One of the really disconcerting aspects of this attack was the widespread and indiscriminate nature of it. This attacker did was identify.

This is a recipe for making a formidable problem worse and requires all of us to change. We need to replace the silence with a clear consistent obligation for private sector organizations to disclose when they're impacted by confirmed and significant incidents the other executives they. They didn't go so far as to call for increased regulation but they did agree that there needs to be more information sharing across businesses and government. Um smith compare the patchwork set of allegations the us to the us much more stringent reporting requirements and thought. This would be a good opportunity to test the waters and see what. What are your thoughts like. Is this something where we need the government to step in or is this something that the private industry can solve on their own because there is an issue with threat actors targeting private companies. and not. because we're not sharing information willingly like others can't learn from it to stop similar incidents from

Why Tech Companies Are Limiting Police Use of Facial Recognition

"All right emily kwong so. We're talking about this announcement from a string of tech companies that they are going gonna put limits on their facial recognition technology especially when it comes to law enforcement amazon microsoft and ibm yes on june eighth. Ibm said it would discontinue general purpose facial recognition or analysis software altogether. Get out of the business completely and it made an impression after. Ibm's big letter. Amazon announced a one year moratorium on sales of they're very popular software recognition spelled with a k. To law enforcement to give congress time to implement appropriate rules so a one year ban. Yes microsoft took it a step further saying it wouldn't sell products to law enforcement at all until a federal law is in place. Here's microsoft president. Brad smith speaking to the washington post we need to use this moment to pursue a strong national law to govern facial recognition that is grounded in the protection of human rights and for matali in conde who has been pushing for regulation changes in tech for years. This was a big deal when these words were coming out of silicon valley. She felt all of the feelings. My initial was thank god. Thank god i was. I was happy. I was pleased. I was optimistic. I was short of breath. I was exhausted. Tally is the ceo of ai. For the people a fellow at both harvard and stanford universities for her. These announcements shifted the conversation. But that's about it. So i'm pleased. It's got us incredibly far but we're by no means the woods not out of the woods because for all of the advancement and facial recognition systems. Still get it wrong. They'll incorrectly match folks what's called a false positive or fail to associate the same person to two different images of false negative. Yeah and what's vaccine. Is these errors are happening. More often. when the machines are analyzing dark-skinned faces and that can disproportionally affect already marginalized communities prone to unconscious bias at the hands of law enforcement leading to false accusations arrests and much worse so until there's action on this metallic said words just aren't enough gotcha. So let's unpack this a little bit. Let's talk about how biased gets into facial recognition systems in the first place. I'd love that okay. So it starts right with how the systems learn to do their jobs. A process known as machine learning so to make facial recognition systems engineers feed algorithms large amounts of what's called training data in this case. That would be pictures of human faces. Yes the way machines learn is that they repeat task again and again and again and again and again developing a statistical model for what a face is supposed to look like so if you wanted to teach the algorithm to recognize a man you'd put in like millions of pictures of men you got it. The machine will then measure the distance between the eyes on each picture the circumference of the nose for example the ear to measurement and over time the machine starts to be able to predict whether the next image it seeing is quote a man which sounds okay right here comes the but but the machine is only a smart as its training data so remember joy ghulam weenie who i mentioned at the top of the episode. Yeah the the mit yes. So she and her colleague timid gabe developed a way to skin color in these training sets and the two they looked at were overwhelmingly composed of lighter skinned subjects. Seventy nine percent for ibi dash a and eighty six percent. For etienne's these are two common data sets that were largely as joy. Put it pale and male. So basically the training data used to create these algorithms is not diverse. And that's how that bias gets in The diversity of human beings is not always being represented in these training sets and so faces outside the systems norm. sometimes don't get recognized. Here's matala explaining what the research meant to her. That goes back to this other issue of not just hiring but a bigger issue of those no one in the team to say that you haven't put all the faces you haven't put all the digital images of all human beings could look like in the way that they sharpen society in order to recognize these faces. And it's so. After realizing how unbalanced these training sets were joy intimidate decided to create their own with equality in race and gender to get a general idea of how facial ai systems performed with a more diverse population so basically they fed it more diverse pictures to to look at. Yeah it was kind of interesting. They used images from the top ten national parliaments in the world with women in power specific yes specifically picking african and european nations and they tested this new data against three different commercially available systems for classifying gender one made by ibm the second microsoft and the third by face plus plus an running these tests joint him knit found clear discrepancies gender and racial lines with darker skinned faces getting mis classified the most. Here's mut-ali again. So one of the things that joy blue armies amazing work looks. That is the coloration between short hair and gender so many many many black women with afros where mislabeled as men mis gendered because the system had trained itself to recognize short hair as a male trait and this research project mattie produced a massive ripple effect further studies legislation in december the national institute of standards and technology or nist published a big paper of its own testing one hundred eighty nine facial recognition algorithms from around the world and they found biases to looking at one global data set some algorithms in their study produced one hundred times more false positives with african and asian faces compared to eastern european ones and when tested using another data set of mug shots from the us. The highest false positives were found among american indians with higher rates in african american and asian populations again depending on the algorithm. Wow yeah that is not what you want from your data. And i'm guessing white. Men benefited from the highest accuracy rates. Yes they did now. The knicks study did conclude that the most accurate algorithms demonstrated far less demographic bias but for multi. This evidence of bias raises a bigger question about the ethics of relying on. Ai systems to classify and police at all the problem with ai. Systems machine learning is that they're really really really good at standard routine tasks and the issue with humans is that we are not standard. We're not routine. Were actually massively messy right. We're not the same but when a police officer searches face in the system. They're not making arrests based on just spat match alone are they. Oh absolutely not. Yeah it's a tool for identifying potential suspects but if you think about how there's already implicit bias in policing critics. A facial recognition are basically saying. It doesn't make sense to embrace technologies riddled with bias to right if all this research has shown. These tools are capable of misidentifying black people. We cannot use biometric tools that discriminate against a group of people who are ready discriminated against within the criminal justice system but policing most specifically mattie. When i first spoke to mut-ali in march she was open to moratoriums on facial. Recognition like amazon is doing buying time for these systems to improve regulations to be put in place but the protests have her views. Because why why am i being moderate with completely reimagined how we interact with technology so now she wants to see facial recognition banned from law enforcement use which some cities in the us have done. Moutallos has tried to push for legislation to outlaw discrimination in technology before but it seems like now people are paying attention and have a language for talking about structural racism that they just didn't have before whether why america listened to me or not. I was gonna continue with this work. I believe that technology should be an empowering force for all people and that's my work but now having old and new ala not just allies but co-conspirators bright. I'm so happy. Because i didn't think would happen in my lifetime and it's an it's

"French authorities specifically the information security agency. Ansi said yesterday that they determined a russian threat. Actor has been active against french targets from two thousand seventeen to twenty twenty ansi. Didn't flatly say which group was responsible but it did note. According to reuters that similar tactics techniques and procedures had been seen in use by sand worm also known as voodoo bear and operation belonging to russia's gru military intelligence service and see has also made a detailed technical report available. The attackers dropped back doors as web shells in their targets. The operation appears to have been another software supply chain attack with the attackers working their way in through century on products used for it monitoring and see didn't say how many victims there had been but the agency indicated that most of them were it service firms especially web hosting providers the similarity in targeting in approach to the so laura gate campaign in the us is obvious. Centurions customer profile is similar to that of solar wins the paris based firm lists more than six hundred customers worldwide including local and regional government agencies. There's no informed official conjecture about the goals of the campaign that exploited century on yet but wired quotes industry. Expert says observing that. Sandra has a track record of disruption and destruction and hasn't confined itself to simple data theft century on hadn't as of this morning posted any statement about the incident to its website wired says century on emailed it to say that it was too soon to say whether the campaign represented an ongoing threat or whether it had been stopped by the patches and upgrades century on regularly issues. Voodoo bear of them as fancy. Bears daughter is known for going after industrial control systems especially those associated with power generation and distribution. It's most well known. Tool is the black energy malware kit.

He added that microsoft believed at least a thousand engineers were involved in mounting the attack. How microsoft arrived at that figure is unclear. And while it's probably better to read a thousand as a lot and not as a rigorously supportable quantification of the human capital. Russian intelligence applied to the task. It is in any case. Allot a member of south. Korea's parliamentary intelligence committee told reuters that he'd been briefed on an attempt by north korean operators to breach pfizer and steal information on the company's covid nineteen vaccine development. Hey take king said that. The republic of north korea's national intelligence service briefed him on the attempted espionage and that the apparent motive was financial. Pyongyang is looking more to its criminal. Revenue stream not to public health in the dprk last week bloomberg renewed its reporting on an alleged chinese hardware back door allegedly found on super micro products. The report was greeted with more skepticism than such reports usually are since the earliest versions of the story published. Initially in two thousand eighteen generally went unconfirmed by organizations that would have been in a position to confirm them super micro issued a statement about the bloomberg story which says in part quote bloomberg story is a mismatch of disparate. An inaccurate allegations that date back many years. It draws far-fetched conclusions that once again. Don't withstand scrutiny. In fact the national security agency told bloomberg again last month that it stands by its two thousand eighteen comments and the agency said a bloomberg's new claims that it cannot confirm that this incident or the subsequent response actions described ever occurred despite bloomberg's allegations about supposed cyber or national security investigations that date back more than ten years super micro has never been contacted by the us government or by any of our partners or customers about these alleged investigations and quote to round out the familiar four of bad girl.

"We're going to look at to me. Just decide magnificent. I just thinking about it. Why how God reveals himself to us but perhaps more important than that. How am izing it is God wants to reveal himself to US ever considered that this the fact that does that simple awareness that God wants to be known. God wants to talk to us. God One system you think most people would find a fortune. They doing their best to bypass anyone wanting to them or talk to them. They refuse to reveal anything about themselves as lives in sacred. That probably good reason. I probably so they get mentally molested by Sunni people trying to make money out of their fight is and so on but the reality is that we have a God who goes out of his wife revealing self rose and I I find that intriguing like the path that God has the creator of the Universe left us the heavens and the anthem that sort of closing sense but the god of the universe wants to be non wants me out of ally wants to be closer to the Niagara Closer to the mother close in the found. He just wants to pad the alive. You think whom I want to be to my life like half my want to be the more life you know what I mean. When you look back at your life you think well. I love the papal wait. We bought some people. We're not everyone's cup of tea personally. An alleged he gonNA come live with us and none of it is going to come and live with us. He wants to dry limits and yet he wants to do it for ever sign. He wants to be a framed fraternity and a lot of what he does. Rossa reflected attitude which is very powerful attitude side when we consider this we go to the scriptures and just Hayao available God is and just different mechanisms that he uses to Mike himself available unto us and I thought be good just to go through some of these things and I think it's an astonishing thing that there's multiple wise the God reveals himself actually into the human rights which is good that would just a couple of scriptures got notes. What I'm looking at tonight. So you can feel free to take a copy. As we finish the job in nitrate self God says he reveals himself out of his design them playing and that's we're going to disarm knowing Jane One just one little scripture here. I think some of you would probably not what this is before we turn to it but we find he had that God says that. This is diverge who turned this observation. Obviously had a bit of an epiphany sitting napalming the things of the Lord I and he just looked up into the heavens and realized the heavens are much more than the heavens and he said the heavens declared the glory of God and the firmament show. He's handiwork I hear is God revealing in Southfield. He had this epiphany that the heavens themselves were there is a sign a sample of gun revealing himself to the him and rice. And we good the UNIVERSES VEGAS IT is. We don't need the variety of animals that hey we don't need the multiple of millions of insect varieties in spacey's and all the design and all the collar and all the multifunction and all the magnificence of everything that God does. We need all of that and yet God this Dhamma dive. It had this moment where he saw at all and we won't turn to it. But poll makes reference to it. In the book we say in Romans. One twenty seventy and physical things of him from the correction of world are clearly seen clearly not a website. Your choice if you don't like what you say you can choose to reject into this God. But it's clear just a sign that said it's clearly sane and it's understood by the things which might I'm destroyed gun said it's understood and yet mankind chooses to reject God even mice bicyc- instincts of the natural realm. How he reveals himself in simplicity of each creation. In these handiwork. We move onto another aspect. Romans too the fourteen and we find here. The goals reveals himself through conscience. What are we saved? Not Gone will reveal himself through conscience and somehow would away. The gods designed Omena no women. God has the ability to work in our mind not forced us to do things. We don't WanNa do not corrupt the semi why he has the ability to store prey on certain topics. And I guess we get stood. We get pregnant To choose whether we shutdown net stirring hallway do we expand my get confused and not quite short so someone comes along and tells us what to do with my the same tonight Nativity. Someone shared her having drawn to God. She'd never known before that. We all have a conscience into the Samson again. This is part of this revelation record which got talks about. And I'll read to your rhymes to Vince. Code-named says full winning gentiles which had not law Dubai nights to the things contained in the law and other words. It just comes natural to them. Why because I have a conscience I have a conscience about what is right and what is wrong. Where does this conscious come from God? God revealing himself in fable. This is how we marries up with people through the conscience and cry. God we were saved. Dispirit conscience is activated in which we didn't think would be possible and we had this wonderful assistance from the Lord that the people don't have the Holy Spirit they just. It's like you say in the cartoons you got the good angel abandoned idle sitting one on. Shell design go through and do it and do it. That's the conscience. God put a confidence in them. He designed and he he put a bridge between us and him that if we would listen haul let the conscience go. I just sit. There would be a marrying for purposes and we would be aware that God is and we're aware that God is God will same someone to tell us that that's how it works and new market personally e sends to tell the person who's opened up they conscience to to learn how to be taught that's on papal hot in the hearts and again you might be the one who offered the words the night mark someone want to reject what is is that a really doesn't matter the point is the God put a conscience Sei. We had this Second nightjar way. God works in the human rice and versus Which Shire the word of the law written in their hearts they conscience also bearing witness here is Lord telling us at one of these. Why is he reveals himself? Not only in the grand plan and design from the lodge to the super small increase in itself but even and a half even in the thinking processes of knowing. Why do we have essentially rock and roll? Why don't we just? Don't the animals do the hungry? They ate their SOCI- they drink. They don't have a conscience of any the or they might have a plan a embedded in them. Have I live but suddenly not a conscience God put a conscience in men which is another way that we can find out how God is and what he requires from us. Now we find another way equally will have a look in two Timothy Trace explain that the Lord equally uses the Bible whether it was the early simple writings of the scriptures and tonight we decide lucky and fortunate to have a complex collection of the history of the word of God I monster this electronically in a fine. You'll have multiple versions of the Bible. You'll have access to information on nearly all of the scripture with a cross reference. Would it be a map? Would it be a historic account or some words? Correct another matter always reference things there for people to to learn and raiding. We find positive. God's reaching out to him and writes revealing itself was that we have the scripture and it says here in Verse Sixteen to two Timothy. Three he said. Oh scriptures given by inspiration of God save Gordon spies at Sei people can write it down as a record and it's profitable the doctrine for proof for correction offer instruction in righteousness and instructed in Rochester. Not just had to be a good boy good girl but perhaps the whole broad picture. God's relationship of what he wants to mankind and how he relates to them so we have a Bible that reveals historically the past accurately reveals spiritual principles which we might not understand at reveals who we are and why we are that. We aren't here by accident. We actually part of a plan that we have a conscience. It can be turned on body spirit of garden by riots and equally We have the ability to. I want another family members of this household of God and all. This is written down as a tow of discovering. And God's put it there that we can utilize it as a tool of the scuppering and of course in the balance of the big pig shop. It's just something else does done for us. And he also in the scriptures not on revealed these fundamental things but he also talked to things which are yet to happen so even when Genesis was occurring not written a fantastic. After Adamant Abram the garden the things recorded they were record. What happened in the garden? And now we're already talking about the redeemer in one form or another coming right back the Foale so if you want to argue it was five hundred years into the garden in disarray number. That doesn't matter what the number is. I don't really care that's right. That's five hundred years before Christ already talking about crowd size prophetically the Lord is already revealing something which is GonNa come. And that's just one example of what was going to come of the thousands examples the device got forest of. What's coming in here? We are now in the latter pipes use of the book. Revelation and God's revealing. Things aren't always clear but I'd like to a point about some of these things particularly the book of revelation that when we consider this wind Jesus will be as he disdain. He read the book of He said. This guy is this scripture fulfil now that scripture vein able to be read the save nine hundred years but actually wasn't until the event occurred then was able to be translated into meaningful avenge of history and spiritual truck that the paper relied show. Now I'm sure denied a decade jibe at the same trees. Many of learned men and women had read is this is a night pounded and Naipaul had little doctrines about what it means in the interest of promoting truth and understanding about the low of actually wash until it was read that it was clearly understood what it was and I. I'm a firm believer that much of what rich and in Atlanta touches revelation while only be none when it occurs. Then we can speculate postulate maybe get a lot of things right but a lot of it won't be nine as Jesus. He's manner of death. These men Rebecca some John The baptist. All of the prophecies. They really wasn't till it was happening. At the papal thing happened. This guy is anything good. Come OUT OF NAZARETH ANYTHING. Good coming out of as anything. Good coming down there. They had all these things. I was saying. You could say officer bank fulfil Iranian translating Rome when it was happening a wasn't until quite a period of time after the event when the history was all laid out that we then join the dots and got this is. This is what that meant. This is why the one of a virgin and all these other things that happened in my injure and all these other things that would come style went before him and that will let was prophesy only things were able to be clearly lied damn after the but nonetheless it was written before the avenge. That's why communicating. It's just another y. The God chooses to reveal himself to us that he can be trusted and that there's too many of us could predict free events. That could happen Saturday and on Monday morning. Have it all worked out and be right? We probably be lucky to get one of them. Predicted Roy Haven of the freight cricket teams pine.

Inside Bill Gates' Brain with Davis Guggenheim

"Bills Brain three part documentary. Nfl I just watched it this week. Tell me how this project got started because you have you got a lot of access to gates and it's obviously Dan netflix unusual structure. You know three one hour episodes. Don't tell me how it came together so I was making the film waiting for Superman and we were almost it's done but it felt like he was missing. Voice and waiting for Superman was about public education's like how does this sort of failure of our public schools effect business and you know what better the thing to talk about. Someone who's in Silicon Valley or at least the business of Silicon Valley. He's obviously in Seattle but what does that do to growing the best business in in in America. How do you find talented educated. People had at his failure of our schools of some of our schools. I should say many are do really well but how does that effect are growing economy in in in the tech business. So I went up an interview bill. He was so great and so surprising that that I was like wait a minute this this person the needs to be reconsidered a because to give us the backstory. I was a I got a Macintosh nineteen eighty-four. It was the first person in my dorm Brown to get one. I think it was like ten had arrived at Brown in everyone of my floor huddled around this magical computer so I was a Mac. I was an apple guy and I always thought Steve Jobs is cool and Microsoft was just like for the business people and so I sort of held Bill Gates in my mind at arm's length that was like he just business guy. Maybe he's a monopolist. Maybe he's not but but you know I like. I like Mac and so what I finally met him. I was like wow. There's something he's doing right now. That needs to be understood. He is he's really changed his public image and I don't WanNa get into into that part of it because the weight inside bills brain is structured literally inside of every episode. It's almost like a thriller of the project that the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is doing doing whether that's toilets or nuclear energy or vaccinations then there's like the history which is what most people kind of assume you're going to get right. We're GONNA GONNA tell the story Bill Gates from start to now but there's this like thriller component of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation happening inside of it. How did you decide to like like musicnet structure. Go started filming and I actually got lost. I don't know how to make this because a lot of the work. They're doing a super complex. In also initially dramatically. It's not just add water in the story tells itself right and so I was experimenting with this kind of way of cutting back and forth between his biography in the work that he's doing and the first time it worked was when I in its in episode two I think is when he's trying to figure out why cases of polio keep popping up all over Nigeria in Afghanistan Pakistan and why past efforts was it failed and how he used sort of his brain had he delvin to sort of like crack that because people been trying for years they thought they were getting close and then it doesn't work it. Would I thought I'd do is show bill in the early days in highschool cracking the class schedule. It's sort of a famous story where his private private school asbill a sophomore. I think ask him when he's a software and then he does it in his junior senior year but they say you're. You're good at this computer thing. You know there's a famous terminal school only one terminal any school in State of Washington say. Hey you're good at this coatings and can you code the class schedule at lakeside aside and so he and Paul Allen Staple night figure out how you know because his lakeside had merged with girls school so they had all these different classrooms different for campuses and Bill Paul us sort of their brains and they're sort of algorithms to cracks in the same way he cracks the algorithm or tries to crack the algorithm for a radical polio he did things like digital mapping in predictive analysis on where cases of polio would show up so the story telling the whole story retelling for all three episodes follows that one example where we cut back and forth between something some way in which his brain worked or or something revealed in his character actor is historical story with what he's doing now to reveal how his brain works and how you know how he solves problems so you obviously got all this access testable to Melinda. You got a bunch of archival footage. I guess you would call it of them. When they were young when they were dating there's Video Ville hugging kids when they're babies as which broke me like you don't ever see that side of him. How did you go about getting access to build. The product was kind of the condition that I make for any movie. When I flew complained to commit to page talk him into doing it might get loud. It was like if we're if we're GONNA do this. You got to open up to me. I won't ask any questions to ask. I will put everything on the table because that's you know that's what if you're going to do a movie forgot to go make make that effort you open yourself up and the same thing. I did with bill and I have to save all the people I've ever made a movie about. He was the most open in the least concerned about Oh. Don't go there. Don't get this right. I mean I went. I went right into you. You know the depositions for the case. You know there's pretty harsh stuff in there about how the world sees him and I put all if even if you go and watch the trailer of the trailer in the opening of the move of the series is is this guy a good guy bad guy you know one. One voice calls him the devil I really wanted to say I want to put it all table. Say who you know. Let's let's put everything on the table and let's let's consider this man. Today did bill get any edit control. Do they get to say they didn't want anything in there. Now what I do is for every movie all when I get a cut that I like I'll go show it to people so I showed to Jimmy page edge or anyone else or Bano or Malala just because I wanna make sure that I didn't miss something or it didn't miss categorize something and often in every case you sort of. They say oh well. You know what there's another another piece that story that entail you and usually gets better but nothing was. I didn't take anything out that I didn't WANNA put in so there's sequence your time in the antitrust apiece. There's a sequence where you ask him if he was arrogant in step position. This is great because you know. This is a heavy topic now. We actually talked about it on this podcast. All the time like like are these companies to powerful should get broken up. Microsoft was arguably the first the current president of Microsoft Brad Smith. He's just read a book about basically asking being the government to regulate tech companies. It's very interesting but it he bill gates was the first as you note in the documentary. He's he stepped back from the operations operations of Microsoft to handle trial he gave this famously bad deposition and you ask him if he's arrogant and he he was like well look when you're a twenty year old billionaire. Maher sometimes when when you were getting answer. Did you sense that he was that he was shading or was he just telling you what he thought. Who's absolutely shading you. You Watch it. What's what's fun about watching. The movie and we put the full answer in is that he didn't WanNa say he was hacked arrogant. The Fun thing about making a movie is one of my agree. Teachers taught me this about storytelling is that you know that the filmmakers job is to plus two. The audience's job is for that sounds like a really pretentious film film school way of saying it but the idea is I ask if he was arrogant. He gives an answer. It's up to you and the audience to say and decide whether he's arrogant or not so I like to put that in there and let the audience decide for himself or herself. Do you think that arrogance however he wants to think of it is an asset to him and his current work. That's a good question. That's a really good question. I'd have to let him answer that. I mean I think intense focus. I think being very certain I think maybe with a touch arrogance. Get to this place where you're cutting through a Lotta bullshit so that is an let me let me qualify this answer by this is my answer not his answer but I do think that affect of people in the world have to cut through bullshit they have to cut through group think in their own group in their own company they have to cut through how the bureaucratic nature of a big company slows things down so if arrogance Y- like five percent or twelve percent arrogance and certainty and bull headedness it is effective. I wouldn't mind that I think sometimes a director of documentaries has to be bull headed and arrogant sometimes but then you have to sort of you know put guardrails ells on yourself. You have to have a few on that so that you don't go too far and I think clearly see footage in there. From the early days of Microsoft will they'll clearly went too far. Your gifts and that's actually the one the one piece of documentary that I I don't know how interesting it would be to everybody. I kind of understand why it wouldn't be there but it's very interesting to me is Microsoft soft was a ruthless company with gates at the helm and you you wave at it a few times right by their competitors date they crush them obviously netscape and eh interest trials there but there was lots and lots of other stuff they did to ruthlessly destroy their competitors along the way and that was all bill. was there a moment where like. I need to focus on that that stuff more or say. I just need to say at once and move on. There's other stuff. That's more important you I mean the the the the focus of the series is really not about that. I put enough enough in there to acknowledge it and say this happened but it wasn't an expose of the tactics. Microsoft in this period of time and so did just like the movie doesn't get into who all the details of the entrust case it doesn't get into all the details of why bill thinks that they were maligned nor does it get into all the details of why people think Microsoft is wrong. That wasn't the focus of the series. The focus of the series is a character study of a guy in in what is he doing with his life.

"Quote, this is a big problem. According to Microsoft, president Brad Smith and chief financial officer any hood, they wrote in a blog on Wednesday. Here's the quote. And it's a problem that is continuing to get worse. It requires a multi-faceted sustained effort by the entire region to solve and Microsoft were committed to doing our part to help risk to kick start. I should say new solutions to this crisis. The homelessness problem in Seattle's awful. I mean, it's just you know, you see the pictures out of LA, you see the pictures out of San Francisco, and and in in the Sacramento region were very familiar with it. It's not getting better. It's getting worse is this a good is this a good step? Should we have apple and Google and Facebook in let's go right on down the line in Silicon Valley. These companies that have benefited enormously. On an economic scale. Should they be contributing some of that private money to this very public problem? Or is that not their job? Do they already pay enough in taxes? I just found that to be interesting Microsoft five hundred million dollars. To try to alleviate the homeless problem in the Seattle region. Nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty is the phone number here at KFI PK want to resume because we have a couple of sound clips here to pick up on what we talked about before we headed into the break on this back and forth. Between house speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump last week it dominated the new cycle all week long. And it was almost every other day. And if there wasn't something publicly like a sound bite. There was definitely a tweet. But it's not as though there was any rest for any of us on this story. So Senator rand Paul was asked about this. And he's an interesting character. He's a Republican from Kentucky. But this is a man who marches to the his own beat. I mean, he's he's been critical of President Trump. He's clearly been critical of Democrats, and there are certain issues that he has a real hard time with at the White House. He has heart very difficult time with a lot of the language that President Trump uses and he's not afraid to say that he's not a guy who was afraid to speak his mind now for some. He's a little too out there. But nonetheless, you know, that when you hear a sound bite from rand Paul. The guy means he's not just giving you a line because these are the talking points that he heard from some caucus member. This is him speaking. This is Senator rand Paul. Republican Kentucky you said he supports Trump postponing Pelosi trip this past week. Well, do think it's important that we try to open the government. And the only way I see a way forward is for compromise between speaker Pelosi and the president, and you can't have a lot of compromise. If she's not in town to have conversations the last conversation, they had she said she wasn't going to compromise at all then she was offering zero. And so I really still think the answer is somewhere in the middle. I I think think it's split the difference. Is there any chance that they're going to split the difference? I mean, what do you think nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eighty three four fifteen thirty. We had a guy called in last night. He says Trump's the one who's going to lose your Trump's gonna lose this battle. Who do you think loses Trumper Pelosi because someone I firmly believe loses big I don't I can't predict which one. But when you see these two in such opposite courts. So it's opposite positions. I want five point seven billion and the other ones saying you're getting zero. And they haven't moved off that dime, except President Trump today did make some concessions is he willing to move. And the Democrats not how do you read it? Because Paul thinks that somehow they should be able to split the difference. I don't know if they can. So Nancy Pelosi has said recently that she believes that the wall is immoral. Recently. She said I'll keep in mind in the past. She has supported funding for a wall. But now, she says, it's immoral. And Senator rand Paul in this next sound clip? Called her out on that. Here's what he had to say about Pelosi calling the wall immoral immoral. Yeah. And I think that's kind of crazy. She's voted for money for walls, many times Democrats last year in the Senate voted for twenty five billion dollars for walls. So I remain one. Who's four wall would not for unlimited funding for wall? So I actually think there should be some compromises on. How much is spent? So that's where we stand. That's where we stand on the standoff. At twenty seven minutes past the hour on this Saturday evening as we head into another week. And it looks like these two are at odds. Despite what we heard from the president today after the speech that he gave and the concessions that he is laid out and Senator Mitch McConnell says it's coming to the Senate floor for a vote this week. Nancy Pelosi says it's dead on arrival when it hits the US house of representatives. So I want to turn our attention now to a story that has had a dramatic impact in California. And too many people who are able to listen to this program. With the campfire in those in Chico in paradise. Who are being directly impacted by all of it. And the news this week on a PG. And it was a big announcement. It was a very significant announcement that they are going to file for chapter eleven bankruptcy. PG's broke. Like, flat broke and they face tens of billions of dollars in lawsuits. And this is a story that goes back many many many years. They had oversight by the PUC by state regulators and something went very very wrong here. We were told as taxpayers ratepayers to PG and he don't worry. It's going to be okay. We're gonna make sure you're safe. We're gonna make sure that they do their job. And now they're investigations at our revealing. These fires may have been caused by down power lines. And they may be could have been voided. And now investors on Wall Street have lost confidence in PG any to the extent that their stock has been tanking. There were reports within the last week and a half to two weeks that it's become so desperate for gene officials that they may sell off their headquarters the building in San Francisco. And it's not gonna stop there. This is the this is the beginning. We are in the third inning of a nine inning game here. And the face of PG. And he as we know it today as I've said before in this program is going to be much much different. At least two three four years certainly by in for years, and maybe much much sooner. Because from a financial standpoint things are very dire. And it raises a lot of questions about PGN. And it raises a lot of questions for those folks who use PGN, Ian, pay their electric bills to PG any and. What is he going to be able to do can they afford to make repairs? What about fire suppression? What about prevention? What about these lines that have been falling? Is there any hope that that can be prevented? Now, do they have the money to even do this stuff? This is a monumental crisis. Forget for governor Gavin Newsom. He's he's got his hands full here. Because this was a an elected issue for a long long time. And now people are paying the price. We have to take a quick break. We're gonna talk a lot about that. On the other side. I'm Sam shame. This.

"Medicine here in Glendale, Arizona, the dean, Dr Brad Smith, he's UP grant as well. Brad recruited me for about three years and every time he'd recruit me. I'd say, thanks. But no things brand need another job. Well, he's pretty persistent. And he he finally wore me out. And I said, okay, I could I could be their day week. I could be there Monday. So I teach practice management in the behavioral side of dentistry, the people side of dentistry, and it's it's a blast. It's it's it's so much fun. And we have a program there at at mid western. And I'm saying this primarily for our pre dent listeners that you know, let's say your GPA is quite there or let's say you're not scores. And quite there, that's entirely possible. Right. Sure. Then you can go and do a one year master's program at midwestern. And if you get a three point a minimum of three, oh, no you really need better than that. But if you do a minimum of three point, oh, you'll be guaranteed interview at midwest. Yeah. And it's a way like so many. You know, let's face it. You know, so many eighteen and nineteen year olds entering college. They don't yet understand the importance of of grades. And you know, it's it's fraternities and social activities and everything else take precedent. And you know, if you if you kind of stumbled through your first couple years, no amount of performance in in in your junior and seniors gonna make up for that. Right. And and you're gonna end up with a two point seven GPA, right? Very well. Yeah. And so they they realized that so say, hey, it's a one year. It's a master's program in forgot what the exact program is. But it it's like a fifth year of dental school. But I was what I tell. I tell pretense who think of it as like a fifth year of dental school where you just taking it ahead of time. And if you get at least three, oh, then you'll be guaranteed in an interview and the chance of getting in a pretty good. Of course, if you do better than that. I have a wonderful stories actually, a friend of the family same story. You know, he ended up with like a two eight GPA just you know, wasn't wasn't enough to get in. And so he went and did the one year master's program. He's now a d three student and rocking dental school, and he's going to have such an amazing career. But I I give western credit for coming up with like, you know, an alternate way to get in that I think is very sensible. And of course, you still have to perform like you did. You know at org, and you still had to. Yeah. I think that's the big thing is a lot of people like it is negative or like like a CBA. They're doing you favor down school is easy, especially I'm into you appear. They squeeze two years in the one, right? And so, you know, if I can hang with undergraduate courses will make anyone thing that I can hang. So I really had to prove myself not only to them to myself that I could actually do things. Well, actually do well on dental school. I think it worked out. Well, I would agree. And and and I want to give you a compliment the profession benefited from you graduating from dental school because you are doing some amazing things would you mind sharing your path from graduation to now? Yes. Graduated two thousand fourteen I was going to go up to Texas because that's what do just sales. There's not not sales tax. There's no income tax. Right huge. But I ended up waning job here at C M. Just ahead. A lot of mental or a lot of faculty members were looking out for me and said, you know, what if you want to end up here you should price started revere. So, you know, shot Jesse Belaid with me with her classmate from class of two thousand four you can granny and he took a chance on me. He loved me trying to build a practice within his, and you know, I started off being associated another job. And then building my own little practice in his in. You know, my first month I made five hundred dollars going man this kid's this. But you know, through some creative marketing which like social media, their some hard work through trying to become insurance free at really kind of build that up..
