New measurements show moon has hazardous radiation levels
"Future explorers to the moon may face ultra hazardous radiation levels. That's the conclusion of a new study published today by a group of Chinese and German scientists. Researchers say astronauts on the moon will be bombarded with what they say is two, possibly three times more radiation than the astronauts aboard the international space station. As a result, they say Cruz will require thick walled shelters for protection. The findings are based on radiation measurements taken by China's lunar lander, which has been operating on the far side of the moon. For 1.5 years.
UC Irvine to test students living on campus weekly for COVID-19
"Irvine says students living on campus for the fall quarter will be tested regularly for the Corona virus about 3600 students are already living there, and another 3500 are set to move in by the end of the month.

US House Democrats Crafting New $2.2 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Package
"House. Democrats are preparing smaller corona virus for the leaf package. All right. So it's a trillion dollars less than their last proposal, but a trillion dollars more than what Republicans are ready to do. So they split. That More, but roughly, so they split the difference source tells us that the two point four trillion dollar package would include enhanced unemployment insurance stimulus checks, small business loans, and aid to airlines, and it says here you can talk to the right or the price tag is still about a trillion dollars more than the Republicans latest offer. But. But thought the skinny deal was something like seven or eight, hundred, billion dollars trillion dollars. Rounding now I think and I. Know They are in Congress Lana rounding lot around rounding going on. In fact, they probably call this isn't there I mean if you're. Just, a couple of hundred billion. So why not round that around? That's right well like we really have to pay. Right it the idea that it looks like they're getting closer together but not really I, mean, they're still talking about a massive difference between the two sides and I don't think there's much chance Manuchehr yesterday they're ready to restart talks but didn't give a timetable for any of that and I don't see how this happens before the election I just don't. Probably not and. I think both it's weird because I think. I mean you saw Goldman Sachs yesterday for for GDP for not the third quarter but for the fourth quarter from six to three. Based on. You know not having prospects for more stimulus so I can tell you that. The election will be over but I think the administration would like six percent a lot more to be able to brag about that although we're going to get that flash number for third quarter which should be. Twenty plus. like two weeks before a week and a half before the election. So you're going to hear how great debt is biggest-ever I guess twenty, three, twenty, four percents we heard from Brian Moynihan yesterday who said that you should have additional aid, but it should be targeted the Democrats in this latest thing that they've put forth still have payments going directly to people you know payments across the board president trump has mentioned that be something he'd be interested in but I think it. Makes a lot of sense and and this is something you would probably hear from most of the Republicans with the smaller in the Senate with the smaller package that they've signed off on the idea of sending a blank check to ever sending a check to everybody regardless of whether or not you've been impacted on this. We'll probably pass the time of needing to do something like that. You need to get it to the businesses into the people who are suffering the most right now. Yes greed agreed.
After record low flu season in Australia, US hopes for the same
"The Northwest expect to see fewer cases of the flu this winter. Because most of us are wearing masks at camels, Brian Calvert tells us, you still might want to consider getting that flu shot, Dr Dan gets says. We learn a lot about the flu every season from our friends down under Australia. They've had a very light through season really, because they're masking their social distancing their hand washing. And again there getting vaccinated. You could chance it by saying wearing a mask is enough. But the doctor advises. It's a risk you might not want to take, considering we're in the midst of battling another bad virus that goes by the name covert 19. If you're dealing with two viral infections, your body is now having the mount response on two different fronts space like fighting a war on two fronts. The flu shot will not immunize you against Cove it, but he's confident it will be very effective against the current flu strains. Looks like the vaccine that we have this year hits it pretty good. Should give us pretty good protections, he advises. Be vigilant about keeping your home and office space is disinfected. Viruses love the indoors and for the next several months, that's where the majority of us will be hanging out. Brian Calvert Camo News For the second time, Public
Paris Fashion Week will go ahead this September
"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.
Sustainability with Queer Brown Vegan
"I, say us. It's so lovely to meet you. I'm so glad to be talking to you today. Thank you so much again for having me glad Chris. I'm over the moon as you know because we we're we're super fans like the. Stock you on Instagram we found profile didn't we and I think I just loved title Queer Brown Vegan I thought it was. NEAT and I love the way you present your ideas like it's really colorful and beautifully made I. Think it's a really good thing you're doing that you're. Talking about. Urgent subject but making it kind of. Fascinating and interesting and alive for people not to skating because that's one of the things we've. Talked about like, how do you? Do what you're doing, which is well, what do you? What what would you say? You do tell us what you how you define yourself. I would describe yourself as a queer environmental educated that provides accessible environmental education on content for anyone interested in learning about environmentalism is as you live zero waste. What does that? What does that mean? Zero ways you know for a lot of has a broad term of. The Way to define it but zero waste and lowest to me it looks into higher able to create redesign the way that you view plastic and so understanding it from an individual impact, but also a global impact. So understanding that reducing your waste in different ways but also acknowledging the fact that the plastic crisis is a global environmental justice that is disproportionately harming black indigenous people clerked me globally and now we have countries that. That heavily exploited by colonialism are dealing with the amounts of waste that is usually delivered from countries like the UK and United States with waste where do you know what are you? What are you talking to us from? Los Angeles. Oh I thought you are and I thought you were in Queens New York, is that I recently moved back home grown up but I'll be back in New York and twenty one. Okay. So you're. So you're I in La boy and tell us your story because your upbringing really affected how you have come to this. Place as the career, Brian Vegan doesn't it growing up? My parents had immigrated an one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s onto la from Mexico and so we grew up low income living in a way with affordable housing programs or programs that are sponsored by the government and so many of these. In, Los Angeles are known to live in communities are already low income but that are nearby toxic facilities or places that generate noise pollution in some sense in. So my aspects of environmentalism grew at a young age because of like based off survival. So it wasn't necessarily because I thought about being was about others what we have. So have to reuse it and use what I have to, and as I got older I. Started learning about environmentalism making these connections within myself saying like wise the air quality in my neighborhood this way why? What is climate change? How does that interconnect to me and so the older are realizing my own identity great being clear and then I realized the people who usually talk to me or that represented in the environmental spheres We're usually straight white men and so I ask myself like Oh. Is this this is Interesting because I don't see anyone who looks like or comes from a community, and so the ones university I realized the fact that many of the classes were dominated by, of course, white students and not to say that it was bad. But it was to say that there was a lack of diversity representation within those movements in you know having the lack of support having to deal with certain spaces in the environmental field dealing. With Homophobia in like thirty remarks being told to me I realized that that wasn't necessarily space I needed to be an and so leaving after college that's something I want to cultivate it because had I known that there was a educator growing up or had had a mentor like that it would have changed my outlook in environmentalism but instead I had to go through all those hurdles and challenges to unlearn that things that I was taught. To really get to where I'm at today. So you felt that you were being given environmentalism from a very straight white mine ankle and you're like a whole other spectrum out here is. It's interesting that. As. Well, isn't it like do how poverty and like like I remember like growing up like I went to a very smart school wherever and money, and so if you brought in your lunch in a plastic pot, for example, it was kind of considered like you poor. So, there's so much attachment to. What did they do? What did they push wants? Did they went to the school lunches or? Like, yeah, it was just buy something or you know you just go out and buy something whereas like. and. So there's a lot of like use. The is about image know like if I can afford to buy this thing that I can throw away. Of. People. See people striving for that. Almost it's funny. Do you do you think that is I think the idea of consumerism is so ingrained in all of us you know whether would be in our television show our media art magazine anything read it's all about Centrum consumers at a young age even to I remember kids like shaming. We're having thirsted close or even does the fact of like reusing resource that is now seen today as like environmentally-friendly now, which is great to see that shift but back then I, think it's because we ingrained in our own children in our own parents consumerism is a good thing. Yeah well, especially in the say, that's like the kind of the currency celebrity and. Consumers Arctic the to. What degree

Unemployment Claims Hold at High Level
"Americans filed for unemployment benefits for the first time last week, slightly higher than expected and slightly higher. Than the prior week. It's also a sign that layoffs in the country remain high even six months after the pandemic started. You had unemployment claims the weekly stuff. I try not to read too much into it, because, remember, it's always just one side. We know how many people filed claims. We don't know how many people went backto work, so could be a little bit misleading.
Apple stock continues to drop
"We're entering the final stretch of the year in here we all with the five hundred virtually flaps for the year. So far guy in various shows we've talked about various iterations of apple being the king of the market apple being the tell the market appleby and the barometer. Here we are with apple down about fourteen percent. In. The past month. So what does that? Tell you. And I go back to some Steve set a week or so ago that you know he -ticipant at trading down to this or that ninety, five, ninety, six level and I happen to agree with them. One of three that we saw on Monday was a twenty five percent move from peak to trough. But historically, and there is history for this the sell offs of magnitude Annapolis. You've seen anywhere from thirty two to thirty, eight percent and I think you know that ninety five level probably put you right there on the screw so. What it tells me is as much as everybody you know I understand the reason you wanna own apple you just want to close your eyes their here's a stock that's given you many opportunities over the last decade. To get in at meaningfully lower levels than the prior all time high, and in recent past I, mean within the last two years a move from two twenty five, which was at the time it all time high one fifty and a straight line, and then recently I know this is pre split but the move from three twenty, five down to two forty and a straight line. So the stocks given you those opportunities and quite frankly we're on the precipice of exactly that again mill. You know you could two guys point that hundred day moving average is now ninety seven and apple, and you can to a guy just said before you can close your eyes and you've been rewarded with that in the stock for me I think those days are gone. And you'd want dip by as you said before, this is the ultimate buyers barometer. Now you have an upward moving two hundred day it's at eighty, four nine. I'm gone past the ultimate. We really get the sell off that I think we're going to get. That's the level Melissa that's going to be tested in apple and just think about how many people will get gutted in their idea, their brain, their emotions if apple traits to mid eighties that will be terrible for the overall market. Sentiment is is key here Karen especially when you're talking about a lot of retail investors to had gone into the markets in general gone into apple specifically wrote it all the way up and here we are I'm wondering if you think apple is as important a barometer for the market or if there's maybe something else on your screen whether it be a stock you own or not. That is a good tell for you on the market's direction. I think apple is still pretty good on the market's direction. I think long long all the way to the top still long probably by more trades down. If turns on further I. think it still is such an Americana Company and I think that the Nasdaq has obviously moved market up and it's now move the market down I. Still Think it's central to our all of our sentiments very widely owned retail stock as well. So I do think apple is still barometer but I think today I think it was a guy talking early that this fiscal. Floor not being there I think is increasingly important Kudos to Brian Kelly for calling when it really I felt it was very very likely to happen now likely. Yeah. I mean that seems to be out of the market at this
Interview with Lisa McFadden, PhD
"Welcome back to another edition of moving to live our ethos movement is a lifestyle notches activity. We tried to interview professionals across the movement spectrum because we understand at the end of the day, anybody who is involved in movement either wants their clients patients or athletes to either move more or move better whether it's to move with less pain or to move more efficiently. Some of our best guests come from recommendations from other guests and a big. Thank you to Andy Gillam who recommended today's guest Lisa McFadden they arresting thing with podcasting is i. now have lineage of three people in a row starting with Brian Gary To. To Doctrine McFadden today hopefully two or three more as far as I can trace it's not who you know is who you know who knows somebody. So Dr McFadden thank you for taking time to talk to moving to live this afternoon. Absolutely thank you for having me. My favorite question I always ask on moving deliver the first one I. Always ask is to get an elevator. You get to talking because the elevators really slow because somebody's pressing all the buttons and they say, so what do you do what your thirty second? Not In a negative way elevator spiel my name is Lisa McFadden and I. I'll man and this one's a Turkey one I wear lots of different hats But yeah so. The way I look at what I do is I really put science into practice whether it's with athletes or with patients and Meyer expertise is in bio mechanics. So I like to used by mechanics to help people move better and then I also liked to inspire whether that's inspiring communities around science or whether that's inspiring. Students through mentorship in education. Right. Now, if I'm correct your in South Dakota. Yes that's correct. I work at Stanford Health See Falls South Dakota. And I know we were chatting a little bit before we started recording and both of us grew up in upstate new. York and I have to be honest I never thought I would end up in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania, I never thought I would go to Grad School in Alabama and I would imagine that there's an interesting story going all the way from New York state with multiple stops all the way to South Dakota and I would imagine if you're anybody else like anybody else in the movement field is probably a few more stops along the way before you retire. Well, it's funny. I almost ended up in Pittsburgh. Along my way and I've spent some time in Alabama on a couple of different business trip. So it sounds like we've got a similar. Set of journeys But yes I I grew up in upstate New York in a little town called the sweet go not quite as little as where I heard you up. But? Yes. So I grew up on Lake Ontario My Dad was a doctor in I. Always always wanted to be a doctor specifically pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, and my dad always told me no, you do not He said you really WanNa be an engineer and I said, no, No, no dad engineers are big nerds. And he said you're really good at math and you you have passion for this and I. Really suggest you become an engineer. So I very boldly went to the University of Rochester Pre and applied math saying you're wrong dad. But you know had a had a moment of clarity probably after my first year I did realize and did some self reflection and thought you know the type of. Mother that I wanted to be in the type of you don't grown up that I wanted to be really do not not focus around having call and prioritizing patients, which is absolutely something that you have to do but really being able to have a little bit of flexibility in In my lifestyle and so I finally listen to my father after a long time of not and. decided that I would actually transfer into biomedical engineering where I ended up focusing on bio mechanics as my concentration with minors in mechanical engineering and applied math. throughout my Undergrad I really really enjoyed all of that and so as I started thinking about what was next I started getting really interested in robotics and in two that feel that was emerging back. Then decided that I really wanted to go and get a PhD in that. So I had been at ski resorts I grew up ski racing and I was in Montana with our family on vacation and watched a bunch of ski. Racers who had disabilities whether they were in a sit ski or whether they were missing leg skiing and I was just very inspired I looked at them versus like while they're amazing. They're they're better skiers than I am and then you could see that as soon as they were off the hill where they were excelling the rollout of daily life challenges. So I started getting really interested in prostates wanting to kind of help people that you needed additional help outside of. Being Super, rockstar athletes to help them in their daily lives and so robotics was sort of that pathway for me. My senior design project ended up being a surgical robot and then I ended up getting into Carnegie Mellon at the Robotics Institute which is where I almost went to Grad School and then the University of Utah in my husband and I. Boyfriend at the time looked at each other and said, we should go skiing. So, Kinda took that wildcard robotics institute was number one ended the US at the time but decided to go out to Utah where they had just one anger from the NSF in robotics, and so I was in the bio engineering department and kind of hybrid into mechanical engineering. So I really took courses and had faculty the Committee from both worlds and I was able to do there was. My my PhD was focused on spinal cord injuries and what we were working on with functional electrical stimulation, supporting an array of electrodes and putting them into the peripheral muscles, and then stimulating those and my job was to figure out what the mechanics looked like. So creating models of the limb and then creating control algorithms to figure out how we can control this limbs yet somebody to go from sitting to standing. And to do it in a way that they didn't get tired while they were standing because the way our muscles work. If you contract one all the way, you might get yourself to go into a specific movement but then that muscles eventually wanting to fatigue and you can't can't sustain it. So what does that look like as well?
"brian i" Discussed on On with Mario Interviews
"On. Mario? You're on Mario Lopez joining me now and zoom from the office actor. Brian Baumgartner. Welcome back to the show man Nice to see a reo. It's great to see you. Now you were supposed to do this with Ben. Silverman. One of the. Producers of the show who is also doing the podcast with you correct. That's right. So Go ahead. No say so so is this based on the podcast is going to work sometimes you'll get banned sometimes he'll consistently get. Brian. Consistently. Get me yes I. Show up every day as I have for fifteen years but yes, occasionally he'll pop in. Now, he he had the idea and went to spotify about you know there's been a lot talked about written about the office and he wanted us to tell our story, and so he approached me about partnering with them and executive producing with them an oral history of the office. So going back. And when he asked me to partner I was like I dunno, I started thinking about. We haven't found the show in seven years. The last seen that we filmed was seven years ago yet today. It is the most watched show in television isn't that amazing seven years after we finished and so I just had this idea and wanted to explore why like why is this show still resonating and specifically why are eleven year olds twelve year olds thirteen like why is this new audience coming in and why is it cool? Why am I in a Billy Irish sought You know I I saw my fifteen year old nephew with an office t-shirt. The other day I'm like how what? I'd heard any loves it and he was going on but you're right. It's incredibly fascinating and God bless streaming for. For that. Why would why do you think that is if you had to sum it up well I mean we come up with a bunch of theories and I go back. Can I talk to everyone I assembled over one hundred hours of of personal interviews so And Talk to everybody I mean Steve Carell who hasn't really talked about the show since he left now years ago, sat down with me for a number of hours and we talked about it and I think there's a lot of reasons one that never really occurred to me specifically about why it's attractive young kids when we were on right and we. Were struggling. That's the other thing. We tell the story that we were almost dead after six episodes, and then after twelve, we were definitely debt I mean Angela Kinsey tells the story of taking the name plate off of her trailer. 'cause it was we were we were done and we there was an idea I don't remember the number, but it was like. Oh if they're two hundred million people who work in offices in the United States. So if a percentage of them like the show, then we're set but I think what we didn't realize was the attraction of the show to young people I, think one of the reasons is. That the office. is a mirror in some ways to the experience of school you're sitting in class haven't unreasonable boss slash teacher that makes you do unreasonable things at times rules that don't. Don't make any sense..
"brian i" Discussed on Thoroughbred Racing Radio Network
"The routing and all of. Of that stuff, but at the same time you know some some people wouldn't have been able to play on site. You know travel wise, and whatever in a normal year now able to play from home so definitely we've had some people register that you know I'm not super familiar with in terms of doing this in the past, which is good know it's always great to have new people involved in a lot of very familiar name from years past as well so I'm looking forward to a really good and exciting contest and learning some things. We've never done an online contests before. And we've now been forced to this year. So things like leaderboard, and and you know combining companies on the one leaderboard, and and doing one of the the fun aspects of this contest normally is it's you know it's literally a pick your prize. We print out a big prize board. And at the end of the contest, everybody walks up and picks their prize off the board and rips it off with Velcro and. And they take that price home with them. Obviously, that's not happening with this contest, but we're doing a pick your pride conference call at the end where everyone can go a time on the line, so it'll be a learning process for me and everybody, but hopefully we can take elements of this and move and add them to our our normal context schedule once hopefully, the world gets back to whatever normal is GONNA BE! Let's lay out the the buy in and the structure and everything. I've actually also. Got The overnight for Saturday because it's all monmouth and it's thirteen race card including by the way the second running of the Irish war. Cry And The number of prizes, and and this is based on two hundred entrance, and you would think you know with enough advance, notice and with his popular is the contest.

"One hi Brian I have a question about daca I'm a daca recipient and I would like to know if there's anything I can do that isn't marriage towards a path toward citizenship or what you're trying to do that now try to get rid of it which is good because it was a bad thing to begin with this is to push it along so I think that the there's not really a plan that's been expressed in place of data for what happens to people who came here as as children the fact is that those people are not going to be deported Republican or Democrat people who have been here since they were kids and have enrolled in colleges become part of everyday life in America those people are not being deported as far as getting a green card I'm not sure I'll be honest I don't know what the actual process there is my wife had a green card and she's an immigrant from from Israel it took her ten years to go through the process that's because her dad had a job it was ending his H. one B. visa and and so he had he was able to get in that way I don't know whether you would be able to apply for an H. one B. visa for example from a company I actually don't know the answer is you have to talk to an immigration lawyer about it however I will say that both parties have been trying to figure out a way to to handle you know situations for people like you the the Democrats plan is to simply just blanket amnesty everybody Republican plan I would assume would be to look at people who were brought here illegally particularly as children and look on them very warmly but not necessarily say that you get to stay if for example you had you know if you're if you're living on the dole for example and I think that's appropriate and my my feeling about people who are here illegally it's very simple we should treat them exactly the same as anyone else was coming to the United States have you been hearing your benefit to the country should absolutely say if you're not if you're here you're not a benefit to the country should absolutely go I feel that way that people who are entering the country right now legally yeah that's why I just what I wanted a chance to do it right the opportunity to do it right where where it's a key partisan marriage for a green card and I got my attorney actually stand out to me and I think that's right gross I just wanted a chance to do it right yeah and in it listen I agree with you I think most Republicans agreed to by the way even Republicans are very strong on illegal immigration one wall built and all this you know for for folks who have been here for fifteen twenty years and who have been going to our schools and have been paying taxes in many cases and who are not on welfare I think most most Americans including most Republicans a poll show this are actually quite warm for the prospect rankings and sort of pathway to citizenship for that class of people that doesn't mean that everybody ought to be treated like just because they're illegal immigrants obviously want appreciate a call event in New York on the bench pressure government had banned arms so on a company comes into a personal level you and I I feel like lined up very similarly when it comes to on the issue of abortion whenever I'm discussing with with other people be a problem I always run into is people always bring up the fact that people like women that are don't have access to safe abortion to have anti bush and they end up dying at even a higher rate than I thought a study recently that that that are close to twenty three million twenty thousand women die each year from on the proportion I was wondering how you how you deal with this issue so I'd have to look at the study I. N. C. you know what that's based on is that it are those hard cases of twenty three thousand being being studied on one by one basis or is that a statistical extrapolation from the metropolitan area for example he's a hundred people die do you assume that same rates apply across the nation which may or may not be trend has actually look at the study to tell you about that stat the answer there is that lots of people unfortunately are damaged in the process of doing illegal things every day in the United States that's a tragedy and it's terrible that doesn't mean that things should be legal so if you choose to go get an abortion in the eighth month of labor in the eighth month of pregnancy and in the end that's illegal and instead you decide you're going to find a different way of getting rid of the baby and herself in the process that's terrible do you hurt yourself in the process also you were committing a crime so you know the B. two things are not are not completely just because somebody's gotta win the United States don't have a policy of allowing people to commit crimes were safely and that's typically not high on the priority list I need the it's high on the priority list is not committing the crime in the first place and if you decide to go around the wall into a thing the damages your another person then I don't know what to say about that other than that is one of the attendant impact of making things illegal and that's true everywhere I mean this is what won the condo so for example one of the areas in which this come up in a different context needle exchanges so a lot of people who say okay well you know you say that it should be illegal but people are using heroin why not have clean needle exchanges and the answer is because the city should not be subsidizing people to be taking drugs in and laying out on the street in heroin addicts you don't actually want to subsidize that habit Hey what about but all the people working here when you're then going to use dirty needles yes that is that is one of the attendants backs out of that you don't necessarily have to but when things are legal obviously makes it hard for people to do them and when it's harder for people to do them they tend to do the more on safely that I'm not gonna deny that that is an impact of making abortion illegal I'm just want to know I did that is it eight in a factor that is more important than the print preservation of the life of another human being in the womb all right thank you so much and they found I appreciate the call.

"Welcome back to the show. Okay so Monday morning. I get back on the phone with Brian Colon in from every song and he says hey so I went into our database. I looked at our Christmas playlist. We have eleven versions of. We wish you a merry Christmas in our database and Brian. Deane's is not among them. What yeah it was really weird on the Friday. He was like I recognize the song and on Monday. He was like. I don't know I guess I made a mistake because it's not there and I'm trying to think of possible reasons why that would happen. And he said that like one of the possibilities is maybe it is in our database is just not coming up in my searches you know. Is there the possibility that something happened with our systems? Something rogue happened and somebody uploaded a song and they got the artists the song title and some other things wrong in the Meta data entry. Sure it's just the whole cascading series of errors that would have to happen to kind of put a Phantom Song in there and get all the data wrong and then just to have ripped it off of Youtube in the first place which is something that we don't do the chances of that happening. It's kind of like a comet hitting a comet over your house right. So that's you know or or you know getting attacked by a shark and Grizzly bear the same day like it's you know it's not impossible and I can't sit here and say that it's impossible but I mean it really. I wrack my brain to think how it would be possible. So what's the other possibility? Well he also said like maybe it was never in our database at all. Maybe someone at a Kroger hacked into their their system and we're playing it off a CD. No but that's said that was as likely to bear attack. Yeah if you're going to hack into your corporate. I like his ability to rate probabilities. Millions according to horrific. If you're going to lake hack into like like when you have read every time had a retail job where it was like canned music and somebody like figure out how to get there and music on it wasn't to play like more seasonal hits like it was to play music that humans light. Listen I am so tired of this demon Martin Standard what. I really wanted to hack into from youtube players. You Merry Christmas so every song. Brian had like one last theory about what might have happened. Which at the time. I found very convincing. Which is then he just had like. Imagine yourself in brine shoes right. At the moment he walked into Kroger. You're in a grocery store a busy time of year. There's a lot of people. There's a lot of noise you know you're hearing bits and pieces. Maybe especially over the store speakers. Which sometimes aren't the best and you know stuff in the challenging environment. If you asked me to put money on it I would say you know this. It was probably a case of the song being this hurt in the store. It's difficult for me to say that I make music myself and it's difficult to say because you you know. If you'd asked me that question I would be one part of Barris. The one point. Maybe a little bit annoyed that you would ask the question in the first place. So he's saying it's like your clients mistake. Yeah what he's saying is like if you're in a circumstance where it's loud where your kids distracting. You like it's possible to miss hear your song and like sure. It's possible that Song Brian is lying to me and like I can't see their database and I have no idea whether he's telling the truth but like what's more likely. Is it more likely that ever song went on Youtube found a version of? We wish you. Merry Christmas. Like twenty-five views ripped it in violation of copyright law. Put it on their playlist to play and Kroger as all over the country and then Brian Deane just happened to walk into one as it was playing or is it more likely that he just misheard. The song like people miss here songs all the time also ever song. Brian told us that there is a version of. We wish you merry Christmas in their system. That does sound a lot like Brian. Deane's and he thinks that that is the likely hope bread. I don't know dude. I still just have a hard time imagining that. A musician would not recognize a song they recorded. I mean if it was an instrumental cover. It would make some sense to me but there was one thing that was nagging at me. Which is like do you remember how? I Talk to Allah. Brian's bandmates yeah one of them. This guy's AC. I asked him directly like. Do you think that Brian just could have misheard? His own song. Anzac was like honestly. Brian has one of the best ears of anybody that I've ever met. His ear is UNCANNY I can't imagine that he would be wrong. Brian like is the person who sends me clips of raised theme from Star Wars next to the emperor's themed show how they're how they're how similar and predicted the end of the Star Wars Movie. At least a little bit Based only on the musical themes from the first doors yes the soundtrack and and business on the recurring. Musical motifs came up with spoilers for the movie. Yeah what a lunatic insane so I just wanted to test Brian's ear like was he actually as good as that claimed he was. Now what you need to know about Brian. Is that beyond just star wars. He's like scores in general. Okay so I. I called up musician Brian and told him whatever song. Brian had told me that they couldn't find a song in the database and at first he was like really questioning himself. Do you think I'm crazy? I'm starting to think I'm crazy. And maybe all I mean a piano version with some drums and a base of We wish you merry Christmas may be sound similar. We aren't sure if you're crazy and we WANNA find out okay. So we have come up with a game that tests. How good you are at recognizing music. Oh Jeez and it will help us understand why you think that it was your song that you heard in the storm. Okay okay since I know that you are John Williams Fan and since Zach specifically mentioned your ability to pick out star wars music. I am going to play some star wars or not star wars music for you. Tell me if if it if it is from star wars or not we go. This is track number one star wars not stores..

"Okay. Yeah this her hip differently right now. See You remember that we? We spoke to a former employee of the install radio network on background. Told me like the company was so desperate for Christmas music that the idea that they would go to Youtube and Grab Bryan. Song was like not insane to them. Brian from ever song did actually confirm the first part of that theory. Which is they are slammed. Every holiday season but also. He told me that this season just keeps getting longer. I remember a study that we read That was testing number Christmas songs and of testing the appetite public appetite for for the very songs that we're talking about the most familiar. Christmas songs and what came back was people you know. Sixty to seventy percent in in in that range of the people in the survey were saying. You can't start early enough you know. It was a little bit of a surprise for us but it's so people will say one thing I think. Think and say well. It's kind of a trope Christmas music. I here in it but deep down inside. They like hearing a little Christmas music and in October. Apparently so if people like to hear the songs around October like how early do you have to start thinking about Christmas? Season programming like what to Wednesday July? That's a whole process. It's it's it's like we we mobilized for war in around August. Yeah so I was starting to feel like I was on the right track and I asked every Song Brian. Hey can I play you musician? Brian's we wish you every Christmas and when I did ever Brian was like Oh yeah I recognize that he recognizes yes. I believe that was part of our Christmas. Mix that we put together I WANNA I WANNA say. The song was probably used within the last two years or so. He said that he was pretty confident that he'd heard this before because they listen to their holiday playlist in the office over the holidays. They eat their own dog food. Yeah basically that's like how Matt Lever was like wanted and one this argument but was like we should have in the bathrooms Gimblett. We should have not premium but free spotify because we should have the experience of listening to ads because listeners. Listen to ads which was like the most. I don't think I've ever disagreed. Philosophically with Matt harder the net decision and every time. I go to the bathroom makes me. But it's idiots mentality don't WANNA go into it. Got New big fight with madly R- about that you did or yeah really. I was like I thought I was crazy. I got into a big fight with him where it's basically like. I don't understand what you're doing this. You're making this a less pleasant place to work while you do that so I felt and he was like in his response was like you. Yelling at me is making this less pleasant place to work. And that's probably right and first of all this is on slack. So I'm not yelling at you very strongly you have a very you have like when you're yelling over dykes. It's very odd yelling slack voice but but I thought that I could move him in any direction but he is so certain that this is a great thing that he's doing the worst is spotify now runs. Ads For reply all Someti- oh so I get to be pooping and hear my own voice it rules. It's like a nightmare from him so bad anyway. They played Christmas including Brian. Deane Song So. I asked Brian from ever Sung. How they got their hands on it. How would ever song end up with programming song like that? I guess I would say I would ask your listeners. If they uploaded the song to Maybe the CD baby You have deals with a number of smaller companies. I don't think that he did. He told me that the only place he really put it up as Youtube. Is that a thing where ever song or in store audio network will look for songs on Youtube. If that was the you know I I don't. I don't believe that we've ever just onto YouTube Now so I would. I would say that I did. They have any CD's made I think they burned their own CDs like they actually just had a town like one of those CD burning towers on their computers and just burned it that way. Yeah that's interesting. I mean I have to look but I can tell you You know just by the way that we work It would have to come through. An aggregate or a hundred percent of our music comes from those aggregate is so Ryan was basically like these aggregated that we work with have just massive massive music libraries. And so it'd be stupidly labor for them to go hunting for new Christmas songs on Youtube. That weren't even in the format that they need them to be into play in the store. It's easier for us to to be provided with a file. That's you know in a in what they call a Kodak compression technology that you're ready to go Sort a little bit of a mystery. Then yeah he was out of town when this when I had this first conversation with him but he said look. I'm going to go back to our office. Check in our database. And then I'll be able to tell you exactly how we got this song so this first interview was on a Friday and he told me to call him back on Monday. And at this point I am super stoked because I'm like we're going to figure out how this song ended up in Kroger after the break. Brian.

"So the first and most obvious thing that I wanted to look into was that Brian said the only place on the Internet he put the song was on Youtube. But he's just one of four members of the band that recorded it so one of those people could have you know published somewhere or given it to someone who worked at the. Macon Kroger so I wanted to like get in touch with his bandmates and I got in touch with this guy. John Who Played Guitar. Played Bass on it. Can you think of any reason why it would be there? I can only attributed to someone's impeccable taste but you weren't like sending you weren't like secretly uploading this to spotify or or sending executives or anything I have. I have a CD tower. That I can. And I think I made about fifty copies gave them out to six or eight people. And that's it and I don't know that I gave it anybody who lives in making and then there was Johnson. Zach Hazak. Yes this is Alex Goldman. How're you doing? And he was like no wasn't me? I did not pass it onto anyone. In fact I was a couple years old lots going on. I'd almost forgotten that we done the project me on this so there was one last possibility. Which is this guy named Miguel? Who played drums on the track but he didn't even remember ever according it in the first place so. I'm pretty sure it wasn't him who leaked it to kroger right okay. So if Brian and his bandmates didn't know how the song ended up at the Kroger. Maybe the people that work at that Kroger might have some idea so I decided to give them a call department. They help you yes. We call the floral department because our belief was that it wouldn't be so busy and they would have a moment's talk. Ooh I like that. Yeah do you know where the music that the that is played over the speakers at Kroger comes from? Oh No I do not. I mean I'm assuming they have their own radio station they use. I mean I really don't then. She transferred me to the customer service desk at her store and they were like. I have no idea where the music comes from is piped in from somewhere so I was like well. It's probably piped in from like Kroger corporate so I decided to call the National Kroger Customer Service Line and they were also like we have no idea. Honestly I'm not sure that they get Pandora. Sure they suffer there. I'm not really sure about it. He didn't know the answer. I started sending emails to people at Kroger Corporate. In the meantime I was just calling Kroger. Employees like all across the country. Just trying to get a sense of how music in the store even works just like would it be possible for some rogue employees to like grab the Oxford and plug in their iphone? There's really no way to do that. Unless you're using the The like the intercom own kind of music. That plays all the time in the store. Yes so there. There's no way for me to adjust like the station. I I can just volume and that's got it also. Pj if you really want to curb employees. Just ask him about the Christmas music you you think of the worst Christmas Music. You've never heard that's like can you give me some examples? Santa Claus and every song it wasn't it wasn't like the song you know. Listen to you. It's the bad cover version by someone you've never heard of. One woman said that one time she was in the store and she heard five different versions of Jingle Bells back toback. Oh can you imagine? It's so painful. Yes there's a lot of room for like jazz. Improvisation and that's either no. You can't really make it your own. Also it was a total long shot but while I had him on the phone I played them Bryan Song to see if they recognized it. Sis familiar to you at all it. Very welcome plate over the holiday but I but then there's this one woman who worked at a kroger in Colorado. Does this ring a bell.

"On? This one is much more confounding because the more I worked on it like the less certain I became the answer and I basically come out the other side believing two contradictory things simultaneously which is absolutely painful for my very linear brain which is incapable of abstraction of any kind. Okay so my hope is if I tell you the story you might be able to help me come closer to understanding where the truth lies okay. I can't promise I will like insightful. Fighting the truth but I'm excited to see if Ivan. Pinon think of this less as a super tech support more as a philosophical journey on the nature of truth all right do you WanNa do you WanNa wear like professor. Jackie tweet out. I was actually thinking about a tiny I was actually thinking in. The tradition of the classic Philosophers Wear Toga and one of those rings of like of like leaves that they wear around their years. Okay what's the story so we heard from a listener named Brian? Deane who got in touch with us just after Christmas. He lives in Savannah Georgia. He works for Gulfstream. The company that makes the airplanes. Hey Brian can you hear me good? How are you and this story actually started a few years ago when Brian got a new piano. Extremely excited about having this piano and to celebrate that I had a couple of friends who play the saxophone and the drums and bass and recording equipment. I said let's do Christmas album Just through the joy of having piano So we recorded a Christmas album in my living room as wholesome friend activity. I know right so that was back in two thousand sixteen and he uploaded it to Youtube. He burned a couple copies for family and friends and he basically forgot about it and then this past Christmas is driving back from a family visits Chicago when his daughter has to p so they stop in. Macon Georgia says about three hours from their house at a kroger because and I didn't realize this brand is like the grocery stores the best place to go back from because no one's ever in the bathrooms love of grocery store bathroom so they get out of the car. They hustle into the grocery store and sort of like midway down the aisle. He stops and looks up. I was in the frozen food department. And they're playing Christmas music. This is December thirty first. He stands there staring at the speaker above him. Because it's playing a version of we wish you a merry Christmas with a piano. Part feels very familiar. The first thought that went through my mind was oh. I thought I made up that piano. Lick on we. You Merry Christmas but I must have stolen it or heard it from somewhere because here it is playing and then as I listened a little more. Oh my God I didn't steal the slick this is me. Brian is convinced that the version that he heard a kroger is the exact one that he made in his living room. So here. And what's going through your mind when you hear yourself on the a speakers at the Kroger. I mean just complete disbelief. Just shock absolute shock but by that point. I had made it to the bathroom so there was literally another guy in there and I couldn't contain myself. You know and bathroom medicate law number one. It was like and I got. I got to say something. This is crazy but I did this in my living room so funny. I think he actually sets up to like well. That's that's cool man. How can this possibly happen that one? I'd be playing there and to literally be there to hear it. It was. It was a bizarre experience so he is hearing his own version of we wish. Merry Christmas and a kroger but he didn't publish it or sell it to Kroger Corporate. Anything like that no okay. Do you want to hear it right here? We go the other thing. You should know that this is number thirty seven of this song on Youtube and at least five of those views are looking at it in preparation for this kind of a jazzy version yet. He's a jazz. I was wondering how you recognize. It was his but I feel like it is actually distinct. Recognize that right okay. So it's like the grocery store is either pirating music off of Youtube or one of his friends stole the music and sold it to the grocery store. I have no idea but right. After he used the bathroom. He rushed over to the customer service desk and it was like what's going on here and they were friendly but just kind of came up with a lean over and yelled to someone else. How do we play music? And they said Oh something like I had to Muzak And I kind of I kind of got the feeling These people. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to push this with them. What I want it to be. Is that ninety nine percent of the time they just use like some paid for you know legitimate music licensing thing that this one time just like somebody at Kroger just heard this and they loved it so much that they needed to hear it in the store I used to do you know the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas now Mannheim. Steamroller is like a prog rock Christmas stuff. And it's that sounds bad and worse than you can possibly and I used to I. I used to work at a convenience store where they played the the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album from November to January and it was the worst adventure where they played like this one cassette tape that I swear to God only head Monster Mash and attack of the killer tomatoes both good songs the first two thousand times shore so he asked me to answer two questions for him.

"brian i" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"That's e o fire dot com slash funnel. No Brian say was up to fire nation and sheer something interesting about yourself that most people don't know if fire nation what's going on Brian Lou here and I I'll tell you something. Most people don't know about me most people who know a little bit about my background know that I'm the founder of legalzoom started that twenty years ago but I actually got my entrepreneurial start. Thanks thanks to a fortune teller. That's one thing most people don't know very interesting now. I don't WanNa dive too deep into this but what exactly the fortune teller say. Pray tell you know look at the time I was in college like. Many people probably had no idea what my major was going to be. No idea what I was going to do you afterwards. I was kind of a law soul so I was with my cousin went into a park. There's this fortune teller who had Tara Card send so thought boy what better I'm not. GonNa ask about my Love Life John. I was GONNA ask about what am I gonNA do. When I grow up so I at the time I was thinking medical scores and Pre Med classes and whether it was through the power of suggestion whether it's self fulfilling prophecy or maybe it's just fate that fortune teller said the you are going to be a business owner and an entrepreneurial entrepreneur and a successful one and I'm like wow I I hope it's it's faith above our well. No matter what happened Brian you are a self fulfilling prophecy my friends and fire nation as I mentioned in the intro Brian's the founder and CEO of a Biz council and as you know that's a revolutionary platform this changing the way business owners access lawyers and he's the founder and former chairman and CEO of legalzoom which has sponsored hundreds and hundreds of pass entrepreneurs on fire episodes fire nation so I'm sure you are well aware of their great services so obviously what we're talking about today. Brian is bullet proofing our businesses businesses but the reality is. I get this question a lot for my listeners so I'm glad I have you an expert to talk about it at what point should a business owner think about protecting protecting what they've built. A lot of lawyers will go and say well. You've got to really think about this from the beginning. You've got to do everything right. You've got a bulletproof the proof the business from the start but now I'm kind of a I've got a different take at this which is at the start a good entrepreneur. You're not focused focused on anything other than growing your business. You've got to put you know butts in seats. You've got an increase sales. You've got increase revenues. You've got to make that business successful and that's all a business owner should care about but once the businesses stable once you're not worried about making payroll roll then that's when you have to start thinking about protection because now you've got something to protect. You've got something to lose. You actually have built something so i. I don't think about it at the start. Just wait until you get to that point where you feel like you're stable so I'm really glad you show this. I I am because I could not agree more as somebody who's been running. Entrepreneurs find out for seven years. I have my audience reach out to me and they're like John. I'M GONNA wash my my business next month but I mean I. I'm working on getting my trademarks done then. I've gotta get patents approved that I'm going to incorporate and I'm going to do this and that and I'm like wait a second and you haven't even proved the concepts of your business. I don't even know if there's people out there that want what you're producing. Guess what I know. Fire nation that we're big fans of our own ideas I get it but until you actually have proof of concepts. Listen get out there and prove that concept. That's why that minimally viable. Product is such a good concept because you need to know that is gonNA work. Then once starts working. Yes then invest in yourself and protect that business now. When do most business owners actually get around to doing something about protecting what they've built? They should start worrying about it wants. They've got something to protect but here's the old adage and you know it's true. which is you know you've made it when you've actually when you're actually getting sued totally orderly and so unfortunately most people wait a little bit too long now hopefully is just a threat and maybe it's a scare but if it's a full blow loss to that you're getting into? It's a little too late. You know you want US definitely start taking steps to bulletproof that business beforehand you know the thing is these. He's the spirits and things like that. They are an absolute rain. I mean they are just an absolute. Drain the life force out of you and your business when that what happens I mean I I remember my first lawsuit. John I mean and it happened about a year. When I was into it. We were starting to do really well and we knew that we could survive a lot of things but you know I didn't know how much absolutely this lawsuit just took out of us. It's it was a trademark dispute and it was something simple that I could have probably dealt with at the beginning but we didn't have a lot of extra money and even though I was a lawyer I was a business lawyer. I didn't know much about intellectual property and I know we just thought we just let it go and it ended up being just just ended up costing a quarter of a million dollars just to get rid of it. We didn't have that type of money but I took it so personally because it was like you know you've raised this kid the businesses your baby and now it's not quite an adult. Maybe it's twelve years old you know as almost reaching adolescence and starting kinda become its own and then somebody's going out robbing the kid felt like somebody was robbing my kid and of course. I got emotional you know I got personal and it and it took maybe half my working hours was spent on stewing over this for a whole year and that and the price that the fact that you lost focus for a whole year. That's what almost destroyed it. I mean fire nation. You don't know where where these attacks could come from. I mean to tell a story that I haven't talked about publicly very often just because it brings up some pretty bad memories but within a month breath of launching entrepreneur on fire I was sent a cease and desist from entrepreneur magazine they go after every the company that has the word entrepreneur in their name and I'm GonNa tell you right now. Brian I was terrified and be a really disappointed that Biz council so didn't exist back then because that would have been such a easy easy way to get some great legal counsel at such reasonable price but guess what I go go and find a fairly high price lower that you know it's a rush into getting into a relationship with and it was costly and it was a lot of back and forth and and you know this is at the beginning of my podcasting journey and podcast will make money at the beginning you know it takes a long time to build up that platform your podcast. Lucas actually during revenue so this is going into my personal savings and there was a really really tough time so you don't know where or when it's going to come from you know like we send the first point here listen. You need to just get yourself out there. Improve the concept I but then don't be that person that waits too long once your business is getting traction attraction because you know why Entrepreneur magazine Shelton me because guess what my podcast was awarded best of. I tunes that year. My podcast was the number four business podcasts of the the entire. I mean it was getting a ton of traction and that's where it came across their sites and that's where they approach so that's when you need to make sure you're doing something about it when you are getting traction so what is the best way to protect ourselves from personal liability. Brian you form an LLC or you incorporate and that's that's really the way you bulletproof your personal assets and just just so that people understand why it works that way. Let's just say you've got a million dollars. In business in Your Business Half says you've done pretty well and for whatever terrible reason you you've gotten a two million dollar judgment against Your Business and so you know that extra million you would have to pay for on your own. Sell Your House so your car sell everything that you have and and if you didn't have enough to cover will back in the old days that's why they had debtor's prisons. That's that's. It's what happened there. Luckily they don't have those anymore but you know an. LLC protects you so that you're only limited in terms of the business assets in terms terms of what they can go after and they can't go after you personally whether it's incorporated no and that's what everybody does these days. It's nice to have it. It's important but also you've got to have the right type of insurance. You know I've I've learned a lot actually about insurance and how it works lately and of I have to tell you that's definitely more important I think than even having that LLC or Inc that I think adds the LLC INC INC is obviously very important adds credibility but insurance is what protects you it it covers you not just against losses but most importantly they're there to to defend you you know because the legal part the legal defense while that's that's expensive that's expensive. I'm speaking from first inexperienced and fire nation realized realized that these LLC's I mean these were created to spur business to spur entrepreneurs because they realized that people weren't taking any risks because because they didn't want to go to debtor's prison for fifty one hundred years they realized it but now you have an opportunity to see you know what I am going to take this risk and I'm obviously when I fail it's GonNa Stink and all this stuff. I might have to go through bankruptcy. Whatever but you know at least I am personally protected so now people have gone out taken great risks and look at all the amazing leasing things that have happened as a result so this is to protect you purposely so use them in the manner. They're meant to be used and you know obviously fire nation. If you listen to the beginning part of this episode you've recognized that Biz Council which you know the founder I'm speaking to right now of is a current sponsor of entrepreneurs on fire and I really the mental when I said it just a couple of minutes ago. Holy Crap though I wish that this service existed back in two thousand twelve because I mean it's literally my blowing for eighty nine nine dollars a month. You get a dedicated attorney. You can talk to at anytime eighty nine dollars a month fire nation..
