David A. Arnold: The Difference Between Being Father and Having a Child
"I talked about how a 17, I found out who I thought Eddie was my father. I found out was not my biological father that I was he actually adopted me when I was 6 months old. And there was another guy who I actually knew because he was a friend of the family. So he was around. And I played with his children as Friends, not knowing they were really my half brother and sister. And my mom told me at this age, this is your brill. This is who made you. And you know, yeah, sure, it could have sent me into a tailspin, but it didn't. What it did is it made me understand in that moment. The difference between being a father and making a child. Because that's what my dad is. My dad is like, that's when I say my dad, my father, that's Eddie Arnold. Mike Payne, who made me, I call him my maker. You know what I mean? But I will never disrespect my father. By giving Mike Payne, the title of dad, and which he's a dad and father to other children that I know. He's just not that to me. And this is what I say to people who have come to me and I've talked to about things that have happened to us in our life, which everybody gets things that happen that are unfortunate. You find out your dad is this, your parents on drugs. You were abused as I always say this. I hear everything you're saying. And I want you to know that you're right that that was unfortunate and wrong that it happened to you. And it was painful. And unfair. Now what? Right, right. We got nobody everybody stops there, but you got to go past that. You got to go now what? Because there's no line. To get in for everybody who was mistreated. So where you can just stand in line and be like, everybody who had a bad childhood come over here, we're going to give you a stipend for the rest of your life. It doesn't work like that. You have to figure out how to get around that.

"And I would say that they've adapted over time to use this method and it wouldn't hurt their belly in the way you think it would. They have a pretty strong pliable skin and scales which serve as a protecting layer from things like scratches or areas of the mammals that might go after them, but I would say that it's possible still for their belly to get hurt. They usually tend to go after things like mammals and mammals have teeth and claws. So if they get a good bite or scratch while they're constricting or while they're in the mode of trying to constrict an animal that that would hurt them, but no, it doesn't hurt their belly and the way you might think it would be a tires out their muscles a little bit if they're constricting for a long time, usually it should only take a few minutes, but if they don't get a good hold, maybe they're straining their muscles a while and it tires them. My name is iris. I'm four years old and do snakes sleep. Can snake sleep or do they sleep? I really like this question because it brings up a really cool feature about snakes and another part that they're missing is eyelids. So snakes don't have eyelids, meaning they can't shut their eyes or blink. So can they sleep and do they sleep? And the answer is yes, they do sleep. All animals really need to rest or sleep in some sort of fashion to survive, basically. How long they sleep for? I'm not really sure that anybody knows. But they do sleep and they have to sleep with their eyes open and just to bring back that, that I would think they do have a covering on their eyes. It's called brill or a spectacle. It's clear though, and they shed it every time they remove their skin. It just helps to keep the debris and dust audit their eyes.

"Com. Jack, I want to ask you about a little bit about Florida as it relates to the country because right now the governor of California is taking on Florida regularly. I know you're aware of the attacks that Gavin Newsom has mounted against governor desantis and hey floridians if you don't feel free, you can flee to California. I don't know that there's a lot of Florida license plates in California these days, but I know there are lots of California license plates in Florida. As acting chair for the Republican Party of Sarasota, Florida, what do you make of a California Democrat governor's attacks on our state? It's a complete act of desperation. If you want, you know, we believe in make America, Florida. And if you want to go to California, take another 20% of your income, put it in taxes, be regulated every way possible. Don't have any freedoms of anything, go to California. But if you want to be part of the real America, come to Florida. You know, I love the way the country looks to Florida as an example of the way things could be. I mean, let's face it under governor desantis leadership, I mean, I had the blessing of moving to Florida and becoming a Florida resident a few years ago and I'm so proud all through the pandemic. I would hear stories horror stories of friends of mine in Chicago in LA in California in New York. It was night and day. It's and here's what's most important, a state like Florida economically has soared over the last couple of years and yet these blue states are in the shore. I'll take our budget surplus growth over Illinois debt in what the obligations, those taxpayers have any day of the week. During especially during season, you'll appreciate this, but it's year round now. I wonder if there's anybody left in the state of Illinois or Michigan because all I see are those license plates driving around Sarasota and elsewhere in Florida. You know, I don't know how they're paying their bills up there anymore because there's nobody left. Okay. Yeah, but we are such a shiny example of what the country can be. And is and, you know, everything from our children, the education, from the budgeting, from our freedoms, just everything, I mean, we're hitting every cylinder, and it's just incredibly part of this. And Jack isn't it fair to say that the left and the Democrats, the beast, as I call it, the media, academia, Hollywood, all of that. They despise governor desantis. Oh, absolutely. They despise, you know, it's amazing, just take something we have our school board races coming up in August. And you would not believe the out of state donations that the democratic candidates are getting. That's how far down that they despise governor desantis and the Republicans and what we're doing to try and continue to improve and make our continue to make our state great is they're throwing money at school boards to try and derail us any way they can because they're failing so badly on a state level and even on a county and a legislative level.

"There's a highway that stretches across the 93 days of summer. Where worship is an offered to the sun. But to the smoking tire, the S curve, and the spin turn. And if you ride it, make sure you do it in a Dodge charger, challenger, or Durango. 'cause on this highway, the lines being blurred are the ones between drivers. And demons, welcome to highway 93, the Dodge is a registered trademark.

And as you know, in Sarasota, we have an Amish community. So we've got the best pies around, so we give everybody a pie. And I think that's the biggest draw, but we have a great lineup of candidates. We actually have over 44 to 46 candidates, everything from the school board county commission, state House, state Senate, all the way up to the state and the federal levels. It will be capped off with senator Rubio at the end. So we're, you know, we expect about 2000 people, doors open at 10 o'clock at robots.

"This month the full manica is brought to you by LinkedIn. Let's talk about what's professional today. On LinkedIn, important conversations are happening around what it means to be a professional. Right now, LinkedIn members are talking about things like needing more flexibility around where we work, how we work, and even taking time away from work to focus on family or mental health. Because those things should not stunt career development and growth. Instead, they should enhance it as we show up on our own terms. Professional is ours to define. And your authentic self is your professional self. Post your truth, show the world the authentic professional you, and join the conversations redefining professional on LinkedIn. LinkedIn, welcome professionals. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're talking about innovators from inventors to thinkers, these women explored new possibilities and led us to where we are today. Today's mannequin was quite literally a rocket scientist. She was behind some of the centuries biggest aerospace innovations, though she never actually received an engineering degree. Let's talk about Yvonne brill. Yvonne was born in 1924 in Winnipeg to Belgian immigrants. Young Yvonne was fascinated with Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia disappeared when Ivan was 12, and Ivan decided she would one day work on and improve airplanes. When she was 18 years old, Yvonne tried to enroll in the university of Manitoba's engineering program. There was a catch. All students were required to attend a summer camp, but the camp had no accommodations for women. Yvonne was denied a spot. It was a snub that would fuel her professional career. Instead, Ivan received a degree in mathematics and chemistry from the university, graduating early and at the top of her class in 1945. At the age of 20, Ivan moved to Los Angeles. Her first job was with Douglas aircraft, a company whose claim to fame was building the first plane to circumnavigate the globe. While at Douglas, Ivan started out working on aircraft. But the work was largely theoretical, calculating satellite launch paths. Yvonne didn't find it all that fulfilling. So as the industry shifted towards rockets, she did, too. Some say she was the only woman who worked on American rockets in the 1940s. She then went on to pursue a master's degree in chemistry from the University of Southern California and got a new job at the Mark corporation. At marquardt, she perfected a pioneering rocket fuel system. It led to the first successful test of an American built ramjet. The device that helps propel missiles. In 1951, Yvonne married William brill, a research chemist. The next year in 1952, the couple moved to the east coast for William's career. Ivan, meanwhile, began a new job at the Rand corporation, which combined research with military policy. During her time at Rand, Yvonne worked on studies of rocket propellant fuel combinations. Her findings led to the first industry standards in the U.S.. In 1958, Ivan left the public workforce to care for her growing family. For nearly a decade, she raised three kids, all of whom pursued careers in science and engineering. Still, Yvonne couldn't stay away from her first love forever. In 1966, she got a job at RCA ASTRO, where she worked on rockets that helped take NASA's Apollo missions to the moon. It was at RCA that Ivan also finished a project she'd spent years working independently on. What would become arguably her most important gift to rocket science? Yvonne created the electrothermal hydrazine resisto jet. It was a new kind of engine that helped satellites stay in orbit. It has remained the top industry standard for nearly 40 years. Ivan's final post was at NASA, where she ran the space shuttle solid rocket program. Ivan was an innovator not just in rocket science, but in the way she balanced her personal and professional lives. She left the industry for a decade to parent and return even more driven. Her greatest professional successes came after she turned 40 years old. She also dedicated a lot of her time to advancing the careers of other women in science. She knew what it was like to have to go it alone. Yvonne died in 2013. According to those who knew her, she was writing letters of recommendation even in her final few days. All month, we're talking about innovators. For more information and for pictures of the women we're covering, check us out on Facebook and Instagram at will manica podcast. Special thanks to Liz Kaplan, my favorite sister and co creator. Talk to you tomorrow. Hey there, it's Jenny with some exciting news. Well, manica is hosting our first in person event since the pandemic started. In honor of women's history month, we're teaming up with New York's first women owned brewery to Leia to host a woman themed trivia night. We'll have specialty cocktails and beer plus prizes for the top three teams. We'll also be joined by the board chair of the ERA coalition, Kimberly peeler Allen, and ERA coalition staff for Vivian Pong to talk with us about the work they do. The event is free to attend and a link to sign up can be found in the show notes or on the romantica Instagram. So grab your Friends, brush up on your history, and join us at the tele tap room on Wednesday, March 9th, at 7 p.m.. See you there..

"Social media without the government I talked to Steven brill about how his new company is helping and my conversation with Bank of America chair and CEO Brian moynihan On his plan to navigate through expected interest rate hikes this year and how he plans to retain top notch talent But first overcrowd cases may have crested in New York even as they continue to rise elsewhere and people are still getting sick at an alarming rate for a view from the front lines I talked to doctor Stephen corwin president and CEO of New York Presbyterian the number one hospital in the New York area and ranked number 5 nationwide We're still seeing a fair number of infections per day Fortunately for us despite the fact that we've had more than the last surge in the winter with delta virus of last year less patients requiring ICU care unless patients requiring ventilator care about 50% of our patients are unvaccinated and 50% are vaccinated almost all of them double vaccinated as opposed to getting the booster and it's the elderly immunizing unvaccinated that comprise the ICUs in our system So getting boosted is a big help Of the people who are coming to the hospital how many of those people are coming in for COVID and how many are coming for something else and then you test them and you find that they have COVID That's which that berries over time a few weeks ago was about 50% with COVID 50% for COVID Now it's pretty much people coming in for COVID It's about 80 20 And last year during the delta surge it was 90% for COVID 10% with COVID So it's fluctuated some Look this is a very very infectious variant It's ubiquitous A lot of people are getting it I am sure that the positivity rate is higher because a lot of people aren't reporting it A lot of people don't have access to testing So we need to be very careful And that's why the government handed out the N95 masks which are protective At the New York Presbyterian as it changing what you can do in this sense are you having to forgo some elective surgeries some other things you would be doing because of the demands from COVID If we could delay something appropriately yes we've delayed that We've shut down about 25 to 30% of our operating room capacity to make the capacity for COVID But there are a lot of cases coming in that are quote unquote elective that really need to be done whether it's a hard case whether it's a neurosurgical case whether it's a cancer case so we have been able to thank God to be able to deliver the care required by the community as well as the COVID tier But if you have an elective knee surgery operation or your young person who needs a hip replace then can we ask people to wait How are your doctors how your nurses your other healthcare professionals how are they holding up They're holding up well but look this is the third search people would have hoped that we were over it after surge one and then search two last winter and with the vaccine I think people were really really hoping that this wouldn't happen So you have that That being said everyone is really bumped up and done a tremendous job But you have to remember you've had the great resignation You have a lot of people leaving healthcare You have a lot of people who've gotten sick with this variant We have really struggled with staffing trying to hire traveling nurses outside nurses We are recruiting in a breakneck pace to get new graduate nurses and others into the institution So it's been a big strain on the staff Steven at this point can you have any sense of whether this might have longer term repercussions for your ability to attract and retain some of the healthcare professionals you need I don't think so I think that people really do want to go into healthcare I think that they understand the importance of it They understand how much the healthcare system is really helped the country get through this I think we've gone through that wave of the resignation I think people really do want to go into healthcare I don't think they'll be a long-term effect But boy oh boy it's been tough over the past couple of years And you know I don't want to I don't want to cry crocodiles here It's been really really tough on the front line staff You warned us that there could well be another way and there could be a variant I'm not sure we were fully prepared for it Maybe even if the governmental level we were probably prepared Let's assume for the moment there's another one after this We don't know that there will be but I don't think we can rule it out What should we be doing right now to prepare for the next wave You and I have spoken about this David You have to take adjusting taste mentality as opposed to just in time We purchased an entirely new warehouse during the first wave in 2020 So we have adequate supplies of PPE We have adequate supplies of just about everything with the exception of some of these supply chains where it's that you see throughout the rest of the economy But testing is really important Getting the tests out to Americans is important The masks are important making sure that we are continuing to discuss with the pharmaceutical companies another vaccine or a booster for the next variant We don't know We can't predict what's going to happen But assuming the worst usually and hoping for the best is probably a better strategy than waiting to react to a problem I think the testing problem really exacerbated this to be honest with you Well let's pursue that specifically because the government was in the process of mailing out a lot of free tests around the country But what's the government doing in terms of stockpiling for the next one Well the answer to the short answer is I don't know what to do with the stockpile but the engine tests are not the be all end all but it helps It helps to know if you're positive and when our staff have the N95 masks on and they have their advisers on They're not getting infected in the hospital They're getting infected in the community So we know that these mass are effective Thanks to president and CEO of New York Presbyterian doctor Stephen corwin Coming up addressing the problem of misinformation on social media That's next.

"It's easy to say that it's matured or i can't play or whatever the reality is that differentiation opportunity are based on basics right. Are you communicating. Well with your team. Are you communicating well with customers. Are you creating value. That you can't the other people can't create and that all comes down to exactly what we've been talking about today We talked a lot about risk. Management risk mitigation. But you can take these same tools you can apply them to your customers right. How do you. How do i take a financial operational external or systemic threat that might customer faces and use those game theoretic ideas of moving from synchronous to acn of symmetric to asymmetric temporary to permanent and so forth in start to flip the switches for them. Because that's when you create massive value in whatever industry That you're in just moving figuring out how to take dynamic threats and make them static. That's that's what caused the insurance industry right. When the insurance industry came into existence in a mature way this literally funded nation-states the more of these risks. Which is what they call them. The can flip the more value can create when you take a look at amazon ways. Take a look at uber. When you take a look at facebook when you take a look at salesforce what did they do. They flipped all of those switches at the same time. And that's why they're multiple is what it is because they were completely disruptive to the market and they completely changed the lives of their customers. Well jonathan dot is a fantastic way to end this incredible conversation. Thank you so much for coming on today. Talking about your new book wrote waves in all these amazing insights.

What's next podcast thanks. You can find more information about me. Jonathan brill dot com. Anytime you want excellent. Well thank you so much. What a fun conversation. With jonathan bril-. I love when people are really pushing us to think differently. Every single day about how we can not only grow our businesses but personally invest in that disruption ourselves. So i hope you've found the abc's of resilient growth of what is is a road wave

"Maybe we're looking at cost reductions and and how to optimize the organization. So you've got to figure out you know. Is everybody motivated to achieve the same goal if not. How'd you refrain the goal. Do you understand the context that you're working so this is different than understanding the goal in the mental model. Do you understand how different the world is going to be when kovin hits right. I would argue that. Very very few people did and very very few leaders said historically win. These kinds of disruptions have happened. Here's what it looks like. He was how long it looks like. You know here are the financial operational external in strategic impacts of a situation like that. And that's a lot of what i do with. Organizations is helping to map without looks like helping to communicate what that looks like either as a threat or as an opportunity. And do you have a does. Does the team have a fast feedback. Loop with the captain if they don't you know the the the leader is getting get really really concerned especially in a shareholder driven environment that maybe you know. Maybe the reportings old. Maybe the data's old so and so forth but they've got hit the quarter. They've got a report out every quarter. You've got to figure out how to tighten out up this feedback loop so that the captain has the data that they need and i think about this often like an octopus. So there's something interesting about an octopus. Which is it's got a big brain But it's got nine Nine neural clusters one for each one for each tentacle. And so if you start creating common mental model and so on and so forth what becomes possible is that that the big brain can start to identify. What are the larger priorities. But it can start to push down authority. It can start pushed on innovation lower and lower and lower and the organization so that it can adapt more quickly and it can make more decisions when they need to be made..

"Carl icahn xerox. Their earnings per share were down sixty percent or sixty nine percent by gap. And so there's there's real value in starting to think about how do you become resilient as an organization and how do you use. That is an opportunity to pivot as an opportunity to do things that you couldn't do in normal times either because of cultural issues because of management issues Because of incentives or because honestly your competitors were looking and competing on those metrics instead of just trying to survive in so as an individual contributor. Because i love that. You said that kind of peter starts at the board works its way down. Might get a little bit road blocked or reinterpreted at the middle manager level. But let's talk about individual contributors for a second because people that are listening to this. Podcast might be an individual contributor and ghost like look. I just show up every day. You know. I don't have any ability to impact the board or my executives and i'm trying to to Be resilient day in and day out right. And what i do and what. My role is from a business perspective. And so is there anything you could sort of recommend if we started at the individual contributor. Work your way up to middle-management worked way up to executive that you would sort of guide them around these abc's and and really thinking about resilience and preparing for potentially a rogue wave absolutely there are there are things you can do as an individual contributor contributor if you don't design incentives or if you don't fully control processes through there are things you can do just in your day to day right. Think about when. I think about innovation. We everybody's got a different flavor of this but they talk about how we've gotta move from captaining to coaching right from the leader having the vision having commanding control maximizing predictability you know so on and so forth to creating that shared mental model and coaching and learning. And all of the things you hear on every leadership podcast but what you don't hear are what are the criteria for moving from captaining to coaching. And i think that's really important because it's subject matter expert. You can help build these organizations. And they're really what creates the resilience there really. What creates the trust by leaders that they can let their people innovate without. You know checking every every third second. The first is have you built a shared mental model. The second is are you encouraging people at all levels to report the impact of changes in have you given them the communication skills so that everyone can comprehend and that's is is a senior subject matter expert like often a simple thing like just. Here's how you frame this argument can you do you empower individuals to coordinate or do you block them off. And there's a lot of incentive issues in there about who's in control and if one person here's something before another person what happens so on and so forth but have you empowered individuals to coordinate experiments without excessive intrusions from above. Because if you don't block if you don't create that protective skin your leadership will always wanna push down and find out what's going on. How do you understand. Does everyone understand the overall goal of the team. And when i talk with large organizations this is so often the case right. You'd you talk with the board you talk with the c. suite you even talk with the Divisional presidents they all understand the big picture but then you get down to middle management and. They don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They're doing it because the boss hold them to. So if you don't understand the overall goals of the team you can't innovate on the teams behalf. is the team motivated to see the goal achieved and this is a constant battle especially in matrix organizations right. My interests might not be your interest especially in a mature organization. Where you know..

"Are you ready to take advantage of external in strategic changes. And i think that gets you this conversation around resiliency in growth I think if nothing else through this entire pandemic it has highlighted the resiliency and our lack thereof in companies being able to navigate. Anything like this or even having things like scenario planning in place like if a pandemic hits what's the scenario right if you know. Our supply chain is impact. What's the scenario like to your point that not looking out for enough for some of these Rogue waves that may may actually be in the cards but someone isn't paying attention to the combination of them. It's so how do you sort of. What is the kind of abc's of that resilient growth if you will because of what you just described because i don't know how many people would get a unlimited budget and go figure it out so so what do you do so there are two issues. You can't prepare for every roadway. That's that's absolutely true. And the second is that you can't necessarily identify exactly which ones are gonna come down the pike What you do want to do is you wanna look at your financial operational and external issues capabilities And figure out like what happens if your financial strategy is off. What happens if you have a capacity issue. What happens if you have a litigation issue. What happens if you have a pricing issue just to take an example from each of those four buckets and what if they're caused by shift of something static becoming dynamics something synchronous becoming a synchronous and so forth and that gives you the ability with just looking at a couple of things to radically increase your resilience and the reason that you want to do that. Is that when you take a look at the next ten years whether it's social change economic change technological change We're moving into a far more volatile world and in that world you can't prepare for everything but what you can prepare for.

Whether it's you know changing demographics whether it's emerging technologies whether it's social changes changes to the social contract things about privacy but what really happens. What happens when they overlap when you take a look at something like cova during the floods in germany. Each of the things that happened were individually manageable But when they overlapped they went exponentially. They got out of control. So we when you take a look at cova you know we saw two novel respiratory pandemics in this century in the last twenty years Since two thousand ten we've seen two novel respiratory diseases appear in the wuhan area so what was different about this one than the other ones. It wasn't that it was radically more infectious. It was that we put a population the size of los angeles into the wilderness. Around wuhan where we knew that respiratory diseases were common. That's why they have an infectious disease lab. There focuses on that We built a cities to house..

Interview With Conversation Design Institute co-founder And CEO Hans van Dam
"Odds van damme. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Thank you so much for having me. Okay so you are. The head of the conversation design institute. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit more about what that is just to get them started and then we'll talk a little bit more about how that all came to be. Yeah so conversation design institute. What we do is really recognize develop and promote the role of the conversation designer. So we sort of envisioned at every enterprise in the world is going to have a department. That's going to work on a assistance whether it's chat bots voice assistance and are all going to have people designing these conversations. Deploying them and managing them So we really recognize that as a serious profession and together with the industry. Really try to figure out you know who's going to be working at department. What's the skill set that they need. And then we develop content for that so we have courses. We have a certification program And that's really how we try to position ourselves in the market as the leading training and certification institute for designing versions. Okay yeah that's great okay so for the listeners. Now they have that context. But you didn't just arrive at the conversation designed institute is like the first thing you've ever done so tell me a little bit about how you how the conversation zayn is came to be but like your career and how you move forward. You were just mentioning to me. You thought when you were younger pre university that you thought you might be a writer That's straight into economics. And and i think writing came back a little bit. Yeah that's that's that's definitely true. So for when i was in university i i went to university of amsterdam thinking that was going to be really studying economics and then i got more interested in philosophy literature and just started reading a lot and i was writing fiction short stories and i. I really thought. I want you know was going to become a writer a novelist and wrote a manuscript. Send out too much publisher Publishers stay did not agree with that vision So when it was time to actually get a job. I got interested in copywriting. So it's like what's something related writing. What does that mean so ended up as a copywriter at a startup. incubator through. Ace venture ops part of mit stanford v latte so. So i was helping out these different startups helping them with the proposition and writing copy for them but allow me to then learn about technologies. Well so got more interested in in the tech space Join a little startup. There was doing some video streaming completely failed so when that story ended it was time to get different. Jobs ended up in customer service really as a quick job doing social media for kayla dutch airliner. So fire go into airline and customer service. Exactly so that's it doesn't get better than that and the company though is involved there with see x. company which was a chat bot company Acquired by siham a couple of months ago so i joined. cx company and Day were doing still virtual assistants whereas like you and a so. You'd ask a question they probably would not answer The old school things on a website and all of a sudden like everybody wanna chat bots and got interested in that and became more conversational. Cx company at the time didn't really know what that meant for the content. Their clients had no idea what that meant. And for me is like i always wanted to write dialogues and know from fiction writing understood. The technology understood the service space for me. It became very logical to actually focus on that problem. So i started doing this freelance at a bunch of clients and then i met my co founder and they had a an agency and behavior design so they were a psychologist thinking really about how people interact with products designed design for certain behavior and made a ton of sense. Because they were already doing stuff with conversational interfaces as well and we really. We realized that if you have a conversation between an artificial brain on a human brain you know you should make psychology and technology equally important in all right and so we. We started playing around with that and we had an agency was called robo copy at the time so so we just got a bunch of clients got more experience about designing conversations Started a little academy which is really focused on chat bots and Got in touch with google. Wally brill that that reached out to us and he really took us under his wings. And explain there's a lot of the fundamentals of voice design and connected with other designers So that got us more experienced gutters to work with you know the best designers in the world and and learn from there and as we went on that journey we really saw that the education was a big part of it So we created the academy and now mission or honest. Really that you see that enterprises are looking for conversation. Designers does lots of people that are actually designing conversations. But there is no alignment job title skill sets. It's very fragmented service. Enterprises can't find designers designers can't promote themselves very well tech companies on the other hand. Don't really know who's going to be using the products and how to design freedom universities at university at the same time note that i have to train people for jobs in the future Don't really know what jobs are so. We really tried to seek alignment now in an industry of conversation design. Therefore for conversation design institute was a name more suitable for that as well. So that's really how. I went from failed novelist conversation driver

So if there's anything anywhere near with the name of multiflora rose get it yanked out and just dispersed from the property. And i hope then we'll have a successful gardening year again and i know a lot of times You say that When you are maybe taking branches off of a diseased plant you need to take precautions to make sure you don't spread that from plant to plant. Yes mark the the it definitely so as another another factory in that when you do cut the roses down as the as i think they should be Your opening them up so that airflow through them will be better and it will indeed nurture the rose itself much better. It in these little guys are so extremely tiny. You'll spread out their ability to get from place to place on plants and plant to plant If you can control the win which is very difficult thing to do but anything you can do to prevent this little. Rascal is good and Tidy garden area Reducing them wind possibilities if you can Nurturing the plants that they grow well. I can kind of defeat their own problems. Sometimes all of which will help with a situation like this now. As i mentioned though more roses for at least three years maybe even longer and i will have to double check that one but at the same time you should be able to brill other plants in there that are not susceptible to this creature. He's starting this spring early. Whatever because they well fortunately plants of one kind that can be ill from various reasons are not subject to passing that same disease onto a different species even standing right beside it so there is room for change and advancement so Lynn stopped the roses. Start the other things and enjoy.

How many I saw the original but this one is a steep departure. From that. No. This is the new Adam Sandler movie that's on Netflix's Halloween themed obviously, and I went out of my way to watch it because some people including an article that we published on slash home dot com. I don't remember who who wrote it and forcing them. Sir Jacob can tell me here in a second, but they actually said that this movie was funny. And I just WANNA say? No, it's not. I I will say I did laugh a few times during this movie. There are some some funny recurring bits and just a few things that I was surprised just funny jokes that suddenly caught me off guard. But this is just another weird movie were Adam. Sandler puts on a goofy voice and this is one of the voices where you can barely understand what he's saying to because he's mumbling all the time. And it's just has such a weird story and it has these tangents that don't ask anything that don't make any sense like. Shaquille O'Neal's part in particular. Felt like it was super shoehorned. into the proceedings and then. You know you have Julie Garner's character who is yet another woman who is inexplicably infatuated with one sandler's dimwitted goofball characters and I just I don't know how or like. Adam. Sandler his point and like why he's been stuck here for so long 'cause I had also recently rewatch the wedding singer went to talked about in the quarantine stream and recently big daddy because I found out that my parents had never seen and I love both of those movies and they are genuinely hilarious not even just funny by. Adam Sandler movie standards. They're very good comedies and just movies like Cuba Halloween in Sandy Wexler which Steven Brill also directed there. So far, and away you know the kind of comedy that Adam Sandler used to be able to make used to have like characters that were fleshed out and felt real while also being funny and like not just these goofy characters and that's not to say that you can't have comedies that have outlandish characters in them. But whatever Adam Sandler is doing with these kinds
Halo Infinite Multiplayer Is Free-To-Play, Supports 120 Fps
"Stop Confirms Kahlo. Blair is going to play. This is Tom War and the verge. Fitness will be free to play in support up to one hundred and twenty frames per second Marcus, Marsov has announced the news comes after leak from Smith's toys superstores, which briefly posted posted details about halo, infinite multiplayer on a promotional page this week before quickly removing them once the Internet discovered the references. The legendary hero returns with the most expensive masters chief campaign yet and a groundbreaking free to play multiplayer experience relisting enjoy up two hundred and twenty F- ps in greatly reduced low times creating seamless game play with xbox series X. Co Brill, an Xbox leaker that accurately released accurately revealed previous Halo Limited details backed up the claims that the most Blair mode will be free to play. The leaker also claims the arena mode will aim for one hundred and twenty. which is also confirmed, and that multiplayer Halo Infinite will include a battle passes them and new customization options which the company has not confirmed. Tim. Halo, Fan number one of kind of funny. What is your take on this? This is fantastic. This is honestly unbelievable in many ways. I think this is a sign of things to come I. in in terms of transparency this goes back to where Tom on earlier with the Sony side of things. The these rumors and leaks come out Microsoft straight comes out at what four thirty PM on a Friday and it's just like, Hey, it's true. Let's just announced this. Let's get. This is good news. Let's let the people start talking about this and getting hype about it. Hundred frames per second on a console like way earlier than I expected to to start seeing those. Numbers thrown around especially for a flagship like Halo and I know that there's a lot of like jokes to be made about the how he'll looks or whatever. But when it allows things like this, that are going to enhance the gameplay of what makes him multiplayer special I. think that's totally worth the concessions and on top of that their commitment to this. Hundred. Twenty for second I think is assigned to me the more tech minded person compared to a lot of people are kind of funny that I'm very very, even more. So excited about Nexgen now where I wasn't expecting to start really seeing these numbers for three or four years granted, the TV's that the mainstream has right now are not able to do this. Even. My Amazing L.. G. O. That I have isn't compatible with HD my point one and it wasn't until two years ago is model that they started having one port to do that. That's going to start becoming a bit more normalized over time. Especially, if these councils are are touting this and pushing this as a feature that's necessary, it's going to push the. TV. Creators to to push as fast as possible for that to get that marketing space and best buy you know But this is great news for Gamers especially for people whether they play on. A Computer Monitor or on TV like this is awesome. Yeah. The greater play. That's the best thing ever. Yeah. That's the biggest thing and honestly I am I'm shocked. That they're going this route but I think it is the best route to go. Mainly, because I think this would have been such a great seller for xbox game past Halo multiplayer like I. Think I think so many are expecting that like Oh yeah. That's going to be the killer APP for xbox Game Pass. So the fact that this is going to be free to play experience like you still have the Halo Campaign, which you can get through Xbox game passed and that's of course going to sell so many people on that service but still man multiplayer that's a big thing and honestly I think This is going to be so good for Halo. especially, like in comparison game pass like of course, that might that might not give impasse the bolstering that in east, but for Halo that is going to increase the player base. So dynamically, that is going to turn that into a platform going to allow that thing to live for a while right and of course, it's Halos who's going to live anyway. But free play takes up a whole other level So like this is this is crazy news, but I'm all about it like I'm I like big moves like this. A me too, and I think that this is definitely assigned to calm. There's been so many where the smoke their fire type rumors about xbox live going away as a paid service, and with this, it's like if you're making halo. Free to play. Like. That is such esteem that is such. A flagship on he'll is a flagship title for for Xbox in so many different ways it's a flagship for selling the series. X, it's a flagship for game pass. It's a flagship for what a Microsoft single player experience looks like with the campaign and it most definitely is a flagship for multiplayer and for selling xbox live. Everything they're saying here is them being like Yell Halo is something that is just the foundation that people just get and then you grow from there and hope that people come in and want to stay in that ecosystem I is extremely exciting. I think that it's GonNa pay off for them the talk about a battle pass or whatever that makes sense that's an a a source of revenue come, and if they're offering good content there than the great and. The on in the battle pass include with game pass would be a good idea to help push the game strategy exemption I expect that. Imagine that right where it's like, Oh, anyone can play. But if you get gained, ask you also get all the the battle past. Plus this library of games, and it's like that all Microsoft's trying to get people in if they're getting them in different doors to the same thing, that's what matters most

Go hungry so when he arrived in New York in nineteen twelve. Is this right and nineteen year old? He Got A. A job as a dishwasher at a restaurant in the city called Max's busy, he learn English and maxes by repeating what the customer said, basically just hearing what they said, and just trying to repeat it without even knowing what it meant soon, he started working weekends as a role slicer at a place called Feldman's this enormous restaurant on the coney island boardwalk, even back then coney island was the sort of urban escape. For the cost of just a subway ride, immigrants could get away from the tenements of the industrializing city and find themselves at a beach, an amusement parks. Many of them set up small businesses. They're hoping to make it big. Dog Is an immigrant foot, right? Immigrants sold lamb grits.
