The Birth of the Animal Rights Movement
"Ernest. Friburg joins us. Now he is the head of the history department at the university of tennessee and his most recent book is called a traitor to his species. Henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement ernest. Thanks for being here my blizzard. Thank you all right. We have to start with the obvious question because this is not a household name for most people who was henry burgh will he was the founder of the aspca and brought the idea of an animal welfare movement animal rights laws to the united states. Right after the civil war in eighteen sixty six. Your area of expertise is nineteenth and twentieth century. Social and cultural history. It's easy to see why your last book. The age of edison looked at the effects of electricity on society. What got you from there to looking at henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement. Well in all my work. I think i've been interested in the way this time period. We sort of called the gilded age. The progressive era into world war one the way this shaped the modern world the world that we live in two books ago. I wrote about the origin of civil liberties civil Free speech rights coming out of world war one. The edison book was looking at are both love and hatred of technology. In this case. I was interested in the way. If you look at a an image of nineteenth century city you see horses and of course. There are many many other animals very closely together with with people in the streets but by the nineteen twenty s. That's not the case anymore. In a sense this you know. Our urban environment has been stripped of animals. One historian described it. As as you know we live in a world where in urban environments at least we only have pets and pests and i thought that that captured that that pretty well so i was interested in that transition and i think the animal welfare movement and henry berg's career in particular kind of captures the beginning of some really profound changes in the relationship between humans and animals that started in that time period ended israeli. Still with us today. To what extent is that that change the decline of animals in urban environments. A consequence of the animal rights movement and to what extent is that. Really just about technology industrialisation. Oh it's certainly all those things. I'm not suggesting that the animal welfare movement itself was a driver in any of this but rather was a reflection of its changing sensibilities and in many cases they welcomed the technological changes if steam engines and electricity could replace the horse. That was good for the horse. As far as the animal welfare movement was concerned. so yes they. They're they're really just part of a much wider chains. It's a way to get at people's sensibilities in this time period. This was a time when people came to care much more about animals but at the same time very technology that you're talking about made like pretty grim for many animals as well. The american city was not a friendly place for animals. Describe what a typical city. And let's just use new york because that is where erg lived. What did near city look like at its peak in terms of the number of animals in the city will think about the horses the motive our for the entire city so everything just about relying on horsepower and that meant enormous traffic jams of carriages and wagons and these these railroads that were really the first mass transportation in the city's fundamental to the growth of cities in this time period but then of course there are huge packs of stray dogs roaming in the alleys idea of animal was really developed during this period animal welfare movement. Lots of people are moving into the city from rural areas. And they're bringing with them their own traditions of keeping a cow in the backyard and chickens and and so forth. Pigs are rooting in in the garbage. There really was not very good sanitation control in most neighbourhoods so scrape pigs were part of the scene so it was a it was an enormously rich complicated and dirty mix of humans and animals in this time period.

On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The.

When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added.

And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third.

Charlotte, the Ghost of South Africa's Nottingham Road Hotel
"DC O'Rourke. And this is hauntingly yours. Here. We all are together once again tuning in for yet another episode to learn the World's haunted places 4 episode 12 you and I will be putting on our safari gear as we are headed to the coastal province of wait for it off Hulu guitar in South Africa. This is truly a beautiful beautiful beautiful location guys. It's known for its beaches. It's mountains, it's Jose Jimenez that are full the wildlife. It's definitely a must-visit location. If you need a place to stay well, why not look into the office in Nottingham Road Hotel just on Old Main Road legend has it that there have been establishments on this site since 1851. Before that's a long time. There was a not he's in or Tavern situated here that provided a hang out spot for soldiers who were stationed at nearby Fort Nottingham. The soldiers they were brought in for one mission in particular and that was to protect the local farmers from the thieving Bushman who were coming around and stealing their livestock. Apparently it become a real problem in these men did absolutely whatever they could to put an end to it. The overall location at this establishment, but it was ideal. It was actually able to cater to the mini horse-drawn carriages that passed through the area. This was a long before way would even be thought about the First Recording. Thanks about the hotel. We know today indicate that the land for the noughties as locals like to affectionately call. It was bought by a George Irwin around 1889 following the deaths of landowner James Ellis and his sister Jani-King the land being sold by the facts to pay off the siblings the States. What was the price received for that land a whopping sum of 125 pounds per acre. Wow. This was actually mean pretty steep for the time. My guess. It has that it had something to do with the favorable Loco. chicken I mean we have to stop and look at the fact that it's pretty much at a Crossroads where the road to the interior leads to the road that takes you straight to Fort Nottingham door window. He went on to a ranked what he called the Railway Hotel to serve the station that was built at the tiny Nottingham Road settlement. Local farmer and settler George Smith. Yes, Smith s m y bhe he writes in his diary July 12th 1882 off. The railway has it lasts commenced and there is a large staff of men on gallery busy putting a buildings in beginning the Earthworks. The station is to be just at the cross the road for Nottingham about two miles from straight turn. The railway line finally reached out to him Road at the end of 1885. The station was initially called Harrison's Camp after the contractor prior to the station's opening before being called Clark Lewis station. However, the name was changed to Nottingham Road station in 1887 as the locals decided that it was too far from karkloof to be so named previously Littleton was the last stop the real we changed the lives of the Midland settlers forever. There was a daily postal system and almost anything they needed could now be ordered from Durban or. It's Burg produce from the area could be quickly sent to the city centers for sale and travel between the coast and the interior was a matter of hours rather than weeks or days the railway also led to the development of the Midlands as a viable area for settlement that my opinion is always a great thing. The Railway Hotel was built by a mr. Morgan and was completed at the beginning of 1891 and it soon became the center of social activity at Nottingham Road. A gracious two-story building was set and rolling Lawns the hotel offered guess the Comforts of proper lighting package tennis courts and a Billiards room as well as activities such as shooting and horseback riding at the turn of the century another family took over the the last name Singleton. They would go on to run the business as they saw fit. But Nottingham Road Hotel was always the local favorite haunt weather for a social drink in the pub or for supposedly more serious matters such as meetings of the Dead Nottingham Road Farmers Association. Apparently, the farmers will often only survived home safely because they're faithful horses knew the way back to their Stables off the the system works smoothly until a prankster swapped the horses between the different traps and cards. So that drunken farmers were taken off in completely different directions often the locals would decide to stay over at the hotel especially at the weather was bad. One such farmer a Christopher groom was trying to reach the hotel to Shelter From a storm. He was unable to reach it in time and was unfortunately struck by a bolt of lightning just down side right where the first tennis courts were located in his dead horse were actually discovered some time later when the storm had passed over the bridge just man quite unaware of his narrow escape a hole was found straight through his saddle and it showed where that bolt of lightning had struck. Like all hotels or the history the Nottingham Road hotel is reputed to be haunted. Of course right in the past two guests and staff have reported that the spirit of a woman roams the hotel especially room 10:00 and it's ground this house proud gentle ghosts. Apparently. She was flower arrangements Tiny's away clothes and straightens wedding Legend has it that she is Charlotte a beautiful prostitute who frequent in the hotel catering were soldiers from the 45th regiment in the latter part of the nineteenth Century, her story says that she fell in love with a regular at the hotel a soldier a handsome man ended up having to leave Charlotte at one point to go off and fight in the Bushman Wars. Unfortunately, he was killed on the fields of battle and birth. Made it back to his beloved Charlotte upon hearing the news took to the balcony of her room and was so stricken with grief that she threw herself to her deathbed. Send story right? I'd say that so pretty it's pretty good reason to come back as a ghost. She's not the only one that lurks around in the darkness though God. Oh, no as it would turn out Charlotte. She's just the one who likes to appear the most. Today not he's is one of the Midlands more popular hotels. It's dark and cozy it has a wood-paneled pub with Rory log fires on colder nights and and it offers tasty pub fare and beer on tap while the more elegant dining room doubles as a multi-purpose room off the bedrooms are comfortable in a spacious Garden offers a relaxed place to enjoy a sunny Midlands afternoon.

I would like to, I. would like to live in a world where. Still felt new. During this, the playhouses signature leading lady was, of course, none other than Helen Wayne row, which seems like a pretty sweet deal and I'm jealous of her whole situation getting a sugar daddy to basically launch her acting career. Mercedes. SPEAK ON A. So the stage also housed musicals and featured a little known dancer choreographer just months before he would get his big break on Broadway you WanNa. Take a guess Fred Astaire. Close. Close. Oh Who Does skin I don't another dig her come on. It's obvious. Gene, Kelly. of. Yeah. Gosh. Okay. But I've heard he's like Not Nice well, did he like demand rehearsals like over and over again tell people bleeding? Yeah something wacko on in singing in the rain like I've brought up seeing in the rain on this podcast before which is funny. Okay. So that's NEAT I didn't know Gene Kelly was from. Pittsburgh neither that means Jim Kelly Okay Mall from the Burgh. What a gorgeous dancer what? Does little tap into. All right. Moving on. The third building that was additives Hodgepodge of theaters was formerly the tree of life synagogue the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. I have to stop. I have to stop Squirrel Hill. Sounds like that sounds like a horrifying like like scary movie of chipmunks and squirrels like like. or or Blake dream. Yes my partner like squirrels. Okay. the congregation moved to Scroll Hill in nineteen fifty, one in this space was acquired by the playhouse making up their largest theater space. The Rock wealthier underneath the theater was a restaurant known as the playhouse restaurant. A former ballroom turned ice cream parlor. Cute. Wow. They're out here like setting up a small town. Lot of they got a restaurant. So there's three theaters. All connecting. So like spaces. Yeah. It was the playhouse restaurant, which is a ballroom to ice cream parlor. Got It. So you want got it another local Pittsburgh or to get their star at the playhouse before becoming a household name was one Shirley. Jones. I don't know that is. Listeners You do but I hope you do if you don't Google it we will. Profess, she performed in the playoffs. Many times Okay. Walmer says love that fact but. I feel like we're GONNA waking up in like feel stupid or something. Yeah. Well, another Pittsburgh native who has a history at the playhouse, oh? My Gosh is Jeff. Goldblum. We love chuckles literally Jeff. Goldblum pits. Pittsburgh playhouse butter boop. Out by I love. Jeff. Jacob Blue, that's the best I can I gotta wash him.

Apparently, his first acting was done with the children's Cedar through playhouse junior an educational opportunities where children received professional training on a professional stage. Mercedes wrote feel free to have Goldblum here I would like to but I don't know why I love You love yes. We've why sorry I just I we did watch this show.

Goldblum. FLASH TATTOOS DID YOU. Know I didn't. But I've seen I've seen him Like. In an interview talking about people getting tattoos of him. And it's so funny. It's like I feel like we should be our next to you remember when we had just left London and somewhat some artists like installed this giant Jeff Goldblum statue on like Phil Lot on the lawn outside the the bridge theater setting somewhere around there and they had this like Gorgeous Gold Statue of Jeff Goldblum laying down like he doesn't Dross Park Oh.

Go slight see the me calm your show. Can take over. So. The theater began to struggle financially and was acquired by point bark. Point Park University in nineteen sixty eight the playhouse continued to operate now mostly for students for many years this way this wasn't a perfect fit though the buildings of the playhouse were old and not originally intended for theater. They were also much farther from Point Park's main downtown campus making the playhouse more trouble for the school than it was worth in late two, thousand, eighteen, the old Pittsburgh playhouse buildings crafts avenue were demolished as the spirit of the playhouse was moved to a new home. Oh, that's a bummer. It's like cool history. The new Pittsburgh playhouse complex is located on Forbes and fourth, and while it may not have as many ghosts lingering as the old buildings had it is at the very least a space that was designed and intended to be used for theatre. Sad. Sad. Okay. Well, moving on things the hunting section of the Pittsburgh playhouse. We gotta get my my spooky vocal but We also Halloween town reference. Have you sir. Familiar. Halloween town. Longtime ago. I know. Collectively, Judge Lino, she was not raised on D. Calms and it shows in times like this. There's a wonderful line that Debbie Reynolds has when she corrects her grandson on how to make a ghost noise like make it like this out of a ghost sign it was one of the daughters anyway she's like she's like she says something about it being like like lower and more melancholic

Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.
Stephen Wright on 'Processed Cheese'
"Is the show most excited about. I've been excited in anticipation of it for a long time. The author Steven Wright has been on bookworm twice a four. I love his work and it takes him the Gourd zone time to complete it. I've been waiting for his newest novel which is called processed cheese and which is published by Little Brown. Oh for around seven years and as I read it I wanted it to never be over. I wanted to be reading it forever. I think like Stevens other books. It's made out of sentences and a feeling about the world that's completely his own knowing. No the title processed cheese. Stephen has been with you for a while. I've been wanting to write a book with that title since I can remember so. I finally did the title game before the Book Way. Back when I was sixteen. One of the things my father did was to make cheese board sees pieces of wood which cheese was attached under plastic at first when it started out like most American things they were real genuine supreme vintage cheeses but as things had to be less and less expensive to be made. These cheeses were replaced by process cheeses and the expensive store. The same bloomingdale's that sold the cheese board was replaced by five and ten where you could get. The junk is on the junk board in the junk rapper. And that was what growing up in. America was light during that period that was UAE. May Be we needed the sixties so when. I saw your tunnel processed cheese. It meant so much to me about the end of quality and the beginning of junk in my child he read it exactly the right way. That's terrific now. Tell me this is a book about as one of the first chapter says money money money money money money money. It's about the replacement of everything by the need for money. And more money and under funded coppell find that the husband has been hit by a bad. Were walking down a street. The bag is filled with hundred dollar bills. Which are wrapped in plastic packets? He suddenly got more money than he or his wife. Ambience know what to do with his name is graveyard. Her name is Ambien. Stephen Word of these names come from. I wish I knew they just. I don't know where they came from. The thing is that when they occurred to me it just seemed absolutely right that these were the right names for these people so they stock all of the names of the people in this book are based on industrial processes or Johnke. The city's the places are named things like random Burg this is the world that's died down and been replaced by the equivalent of processed cheese. John Exact has replaced everything. Yeah that is the theme of the book. Yes now the book is so funny. I mean you'll pardon me laugh out loud funny I laugh out loud myself sometimes thinking about phrase or line yes so that's pretty pleasing when he can laugh at your own stuff even years after you wrote it. It's a hung aureus book but a book. That's hilarious about a tragedy of life. That life does not feel like life anymore that life feels like its own version of processed cheese. Yeah exactly how do you live while riding such a book? It's Day by day. You just get through the day like everybody else. You know you get through each day as best you can but. I need to tell my listeners that Steven Wright our guest is the author of five books the first one was called Meditations in Green. It was the first major who Gustav Nation of Vietnam. The second book M Thirty One was a family romance. I pointed out when reading it that it seemed to be based on the nightmare. Gatherings in Faulkner's novel sanctuary. But you don't have to know that it's a Family of people who believe in Outer Space Aliens going native was a book. Oh Stephen I really was barely out of my twenties. I was given this show to do and I asked someone. I think it was an beady. Who SHOULD I meet in New York publishing? Who would help me to know how to go about doing books on my show and she sent me to the man who turns out to have been your life long friend and editor Michael Pietsch. Yes he gave means three chapters of the then unpublished looney tunes novel going native. I say gooney tunes novel because it has on its original edition a big looney tunes series of circles you expect bugs to be poking his head through And I then spoke to Stephen when going native came out the amalgamation Polka imagined that southern scientists were able to change the color of the skin of the people that they wanted to amalgamate. It's a bizarre disturbing novel. That reminds me of Herman. Melville's peer or the ambiguities. Steven Wright did me the favour of teaching me. What the word in that. Some title Pierre or the ambiguities means. Tell US Stephen. The subtitle is Pierre or the ambiguities and it turns out that in the nineteenth century. That was a phrase that was used for someone who lost their mind. He's got the ambiguities. Isn't that amazing? I did not know that 'til I was done with the book. If I had known that I would put it in

Okay and it's it. Certainly not sustainable. But then you've got commitment when you can can obtain commitment from someone because they bought into you they bought into your idea because you've tied that ideal of how it benefits them now. You've you've come closer to earning that commitment. Instead of compliance one of my Great Friends Leadership Speaker and author Dundy School Macci. She says that when it comes to leadership when it comes to influence compliance will never take you. We're commitment can go to sit on that for a second balance. So can be brilliant. I call that a Dandyism. She's an amazing teacher on leadership and influence team building. She's wonderful Gosh. It's so good so I could spend hours hours talking to But I need to land the plane at some point for everybody's well being So I'm interested to know what gets you out of bed every single day at this point because I feel like you had a successful career up to this point again. I kind of joked in the beginning you've heard your bio read thousands and thousands of times. I'm sure You've written multiple successful books And some and some ones. That did it.

Why do you want to get out of bed tomorrow morning? I love what I do.

Is that the people in the individual person. Is it communicating the principle? What is it inside of that that like when you say what I do? What what part of that do is is. What really impacts you the most. Yeah I mean I think I feel like I'm able to bring value to others through the various Various Weather Social Media Book speaking. I don't speak as much as I used to.

Don't love travel but you know they're not gonNA come to me and pay me that kind of money so I gotta go right but but I loved what I did enough that I could put up with the travel now as I get older. I'm just not willing to put up with the things. I don't like as much as I used to. So I limit my speak to twenty out of state. I'll do twenty a year and that's it whereas I do a whole lot more than But between that and doing videos and putting play up putting on some some Event skier in Florida and our building.

Like I think when I shared the you know my favorite have twenty nineteen and you're in there and tagged you and just watching you engage with people. It got me really excited because I think again like you know so many people and I appreciate you saying you know. There was a lot of failure there too. But people get to this place where they received some notoriety. They've achieved some level of success. Whatever that is for them and then they separate themselves from doing some of the things that Gotham there and so I just really appreciate the fact that you know sometimes adding value to somebody is just letting them know that you know that they're there or that you respond to them so I just. I love to see you do that. I really wish would so that. Yeah so what are some of the best ways at people for people to get in contact with you to connect with? You talked about a stuff. You're doing out in Florida speaker. Bureau or a multi do workshops in different things where we have a lot less people there so we can do much more.

Why Our pH Levels Are Important
"Skimpy. H- h what is and she'll highs Jimmy notes sorry sorry. So P H- H. This is the boring but stuns for potential hydrogen and it's basically the acidity level of substance So as indicated by numerous scale and it runs from zero to fourteen with seven being neutral So I'm kind of going to go through in a bit like I thought you would fall asleep them. I'm going through a little scale and a beer. That kind of tells you what familiar thing you might see on a Ph neutral strongly alkaline and then strongly acidic so you can kind of just thought peace for yourself. How yes extremism so yeah? Anything below seven is acidic and anything above his alkaline. So for example lemon juice which is quite fitter agree here. That small noise just came out of my throat was off fall. It was a Burgh account. Bit CanNot Person. It felt where it's over the phone so anything below. Seven is acidic and even above alkaline. So-called little skin Ph scale here so obviously seven is you neutral Softbank in the middle if we're going towards see acidic side of the scale you've got four six which is were your black coffee. Oh delays zero to three contains. Lemon juice Wayne in at number two and strongly acidic way over number one ISCHGL buttery acid nice. Sa- quite acidic. Nice go enroll onto the side. You strongly Klein. You've got drain more drain cleaner. Sorry at fourteen at fourteen and then a no. I'm ammonia eleven. Yeah I WANNA say eleven seawater eight fan. It is very important to know that like the differences because it goes zero one. Two three four. This is a numeric scale. Like it's not linear Does that make sense? Yes so it means a tenfold increase multiplied by ten separates each P. number So a Ph of three is a hundred times more powerful than a Ph of five heck so is quite a big difference between a good old. Bob Jassat zero on your lemon juice to Medusa agenda. But you don't really put you. I don't think so. No no no so go into something. That sounds completely rogue. I'm GonNa talk about your Montel now. So basically our skin is Colbert a protective film on the surface surface so I called acid mantle and what this basically stop thinking of a mantelpiece grow up what this basically does is. It maintains skin's Ph levels and prevents infections. I'm trying to Mahara to be professional. This is just fucking route carry-on. I know you don't finish off. Even read wildlife abound tool pace. Even though that's funny carry on delivery the least for Nick thing off you go far enough. Whatever floats your boat anyway. So what you're acid mantle does is it maintains e skin's Ph level on prevents infection seals in moisture. Just quite. Let's be honest. Keeps the environmental aggressive? How do you know what that basically is? He skin barrier right. We should we rusted Montel. Oh you are segment so obviously. It's called your acid mantle so your skin should always be more on the acid side. Roth than alkaline. Which is why we can use acidic products and it not burn off faceoff right. He's like an alkaline. It would been probably dry skin. We're going to go into the layer. Okay so you okay. Yes so when you were born your skin is a solid seven is completely neutral when you're little baby. And then a few weeks after birth it starts like and a little bit more acidic so on this scale of God. So zero to three which is strongly acidic. And then you fall to six which says in hyphen skin goals. Oh yes it does. It does so. I've got this little quote from Polish choice. Which kind of sums up? The acid mantle plays a vital role by working with skin neutral. Ingredients like semis. Cholesterol enzymes swats and even our skin zone oil to protect skin surface and lower layers from external threats. Oh grand like that So what should it be? I'm quite a while I've been talking. This is not true for me. You'll miss science so like I said before. Our skin is on the acidic side because obviously of the said Monsell and the average age of human skin cells. We don't want this human skin is between. Can you mean gas? Pretend that you've not got the notes right. I'm not looking at it so I want to guess what the human skin Ph is yet. It needs to be on the a little bit of the acidic side and seven is neutral five more. Yes long in the middle so is between four point seven. Five point seven five. Oh five yeah so yeah with no in like absolutely everything else in our lives offered. Multiple diminishes with age becomes less acidic which means Dry Skin and wrinkles and fine line so I guess they do us when he skipped on the more alkaline side of the scale that you just get dry but reflect skin flick your buttery flaky. Crispy flaky correct. So I'm don now's million G. WanNa tell me jolly what your how to check or your skin pay indeed. We should have actually thought ahead of this. I'M GONNA go some Ham test right. I think it would be good content to support the episode. Yes let's do that. So if you listen to this on there's not a post op to support it. That move just been laziest football on. They will come probably in about six months CEO aims. How'd you chat which will p. h? As an so number one obvious one would say is visit a dermatologist. They can help test you and advise what kind of pro she would need. Only problems that you might be saying. Because if he I know over in America is different to here in the K. Because unless you went privately would have to be referred to a dermatologist. Their basic natural hospital rather than just saying on a book. An appointment with a dermatologist. Again Mush private but in the US near the EU obviously don't have the NHL so often a dermatologist will be in your health insurance or you can use that to go and see a dermatologist. So yet that was probably the hardest thing to do in the UK would not be able to get an appointment with a dermatologist. Just to see what your skin behaviors hypo. Can you tell me what in can I just get you to spend three thousand pounds on me checking my ph thanks Yeah no obviously. You'RE NOT GONNA be in the UK because is ridiculous waste of NHS doctors time they have much more important things to do than check your Ph So the next best thing would be getting some test strips. So you can buy strips to check Pretty much anything so your in new saliva but you can get one specifically for your skin. Safes as well so we will If you are inscribed birthday dot skin than you will be able to see how we get on checking our skimpy. Ho Ch but under the thing that you can do to check. I know it's very vague book Something that might be helpful. Is that just keeping a close eye on? Your skin is very important because soft skin. That doesn't really have any dry spell saw dry areas and is well balanced which is obviously when we're talking about skin type of combination and aims. You saw away the kind of oily in some areas dry in this There will products out there. Four rebalanced saying they can get some nice rebalancing oils is on that. Got The rebound album. Roya on you. So yeah if you do. Struggle with A difference in skin around different areas of your face. Then you are relatively imbalanced. Eber is Kinda easy to fix that and then any irritated skin there have acne Oregon readiness like I do meet skins. Probably lean in motos alkaline side. Which is obviously as aim said. Decide you don't really want to be on. You WanNa be more sick all so basically your drain cleaner and I'm lemon juice. Oh gorgeous

Facebook, Tesla and Microsoft Report Strong Finish to 2019
"Microsoft and Tesla all reported strong quarterly early earnings. Yesterday suggesting the text are still has some room to run well into twenty twenty. We're going to break them all down. Let's start first with facebook. Here's is our reporter. Jeff Horowitz with more from San Francisco to begin with the predictable part of facebook earnings. The company made a ton of money. Revenues what twenty one point. One billion prophets were seven point point four billion these be analyst expectations again. The stock did fall after the announcement but only because everyone expects facebook to blow earnings out of the water at this point. Jeff F. Says the interesting part about facebook's fourth quarter came on a conference call to discuss the results. facebook disclosed that was paying five hundred and fifty million to resolve a privacy case case brought by a class action attorneys in Illinois Senate on facial recognition. That's going to be about two hundred dollars per each affected user and a pretty big cash payout and Sort of proof that the Illinois law which is one of the toughest biometric privacy laws in the country has teeth and that could be a problem. Some other tech companies one more highlight was mark. Zuckerberg's Burg's defense of facebook Zuckerberg said he was going to speak up more in terms of expense of the platform and targeted advertising. And said that in the past I. He had not always been as clear about these things that he should be because he was worried about offending people The interesting thing and quote him here is my goal for the next decade gate isn't to be liked but to be understood and other. CEO WHO's usually on the offensive Elon. Musk but after Tesla's difficult start to the year when questions were raised about musk's leadership by the end of twenty nineteen tesla exceeded analysts expectations for deliveries and reported profit for these second quarter in a row are Tesla reporter. Quarter Tim Higgins has more. It's a remarkably different spot for tesla than The first half of a year ago when the company was struggling to expand in sales of the model three overseas there are questions about whether Tusla commutes goals and if demand for its electric vehicles had pete shares intense Tesla Sword in after hours trading rising over eleven percent one key thing investors were paying attention to what Tesla had to say about. Its international manufacturing actioning operations. The company believes that its new factory in China and one plan for outside of Berlin will help cut costs that. New China factory three came online in recent weeks and could still prove challenging as Tesla tries to ramp up. Production the Tesla.

PC shipments Microsoft makes windows royalties based off those shipments of the PC shipments are at are all affected by this virus that could certainly hurt their windows royalty fees but that's asa legacy business and that's really not their future so what is Microsoft's future cloud computing and. They're the company reported strong results. Microsoft said the revenue going really fast including the cloud computing space. But the interesting thing was the gross margins were doing exceptionally well l.. And that's interesting. Because for a long time people thought Microsoft have to forego profits in order to keep up with Amazon his on and compete with them so Amazon has quite a few years lead on the entire space. They really pioneered it when they came out with Amazon web services in two thousand six and Microsoft came out a few years later since then over the past few years really emerged as a it really strong second player here and they've become Taking more and more market share from Amazon and you know the the pies expanding But Amazon is certainly scared. That Microsoft is eating his lunch.

"Amazing or this is a person who puts your interest. I this is the per right so it just makes it so much easier Referred prospects will will buy faster. They'll buy more boys fell. And then the the the fourth benefit of a referred prospect. Is there already of the mindset. That's how you do business because that's how they make so to them. You meet people through referral you sell on high baillieu rather than low price You complete the transaction and then as a natural part of the process you are referred to others so as long as you understand go through the process correctly than the chances are excellent. You'RE GONNA receive more and more referrals. Wow four awesome benefits Ed. That certainly will boost our bottom line. Certainly will boost our business certainly will help us at even more value to the world which I really like and one of your quotes that in John Dave Manson the go givers. That money's an echo value. It's the thunder to values lightning so far talk about that a little bit because a lot of sales people saying they're motivated my money. What does that really mean? And how how is that more of an outcome and how do we shift that mindset. Yeah well here. Here's thing and this. Is You know this is when the people so bob I understand this. Go give stuff you know. Focus on the other person with with them before the money. And that's great when you've got all the money and you're already successful and don't the business but right now I need to feed my family and the false premise. There still is. That is that selling through a focus on your cells house into focus on the money is actually the most successful excel. Well here's the thing. Okay nobody nobody is going to buy from you because you have a quote to meet. You're not going to buy from you because you need the money and they're not even going to buy from you because you're really nice person who believes in what you do. They're only gonNA buy from you because they believe they will be better off off by doing so then by not doing so in a free market based economy when I say free market I simply no one is forced to do business with anyone else in the free market based economy. That's the only reason why anyone should buy from you or from me or from anyone else. The good news about this is that sales person person who understands that shifting your focus fraum yourself off of yourself in onto that other person is not only a a more pleasant way of selling it is the most financially profitable way to sell as well. So you know. That's that's really what it's all about it you know even if you're doing it for For selfish reasons right enlightened self interest if you will understand that if you're focused on yourself and the money it's going to come across on some level to that person in your probably not doing all that you need to do to communicate communicate value if your focus is on commission but when your focus is on discovering what this person needs what they want what they desire how you're helping them in their life. You're helping them over a challenge or make their life better. Whatever it happens to be through your product your service when you understand that you're going to take the actions that are going to be more congruent with that in that personal than than I trust you and that person's going to want to do business with you while that just makes so much sense Bob?

"To you and admission draft so that's funny so so when you talk about endless referrals you're really talking about the goal then is to get an endless supply of that so that then everyone is not a desperation call right not everything has to be a close you just closed in the right people. Is that what you're talking about me say endless referrals by Yep because when I say analysts I mean it continues to go on and on what why Mike does because let's say you have X. amount of referrals from anyone customer and and and and other customers and other customers and other customers and you've got these referrals now some of these referrals are not gonNA turn into some of these referrals Turn into appointments but not sales other ones are going to turn earn into sales now of those that turn into sales when you do this following my endless referral system. What happens is a lot of those people are going to refer you to others and that's going to keep happening with all these different people now as that happened? Something is people you call are not going to be interested. Some you'll get to see but but they're not GONNA by others will buy and many of those will refer you to what you don't saying that that's how it goes on and on and on and on because you're continuing to at and what you WanNa do is get to the point where everyone on. Your list is an alias for b-list referral and eventually get to the point where they're all a-list referrals and when that's the case You know as my friend Rick Hill used to so great prospecting mentor of mine. Rick Hill used to say. When that's the point you'll still have problems in your life life but they won't be financial? Yeah that's that's where we all want to go is to that to that that good problem to have their when they're not financial the problem. So Bob what about giving referrals I mean how do we. How do we give a better referral? Because I know that I. I do my best to connect people my network but sometimes times I kind of flubbed that up. So how. How do we do that better? How do we make sure that we give that a referrals? Well I think one way is to to really know what the best kind of referrals are for that person. So for example let's say this networking partner of yours is a is a financial adviser and they were really only high high net investors You know obviously you'd WanNa make sure before you refer them to someone that this person is a high net investor now out what you also want to do is to agree that you can is to edify. This is to edify. This person edify the financial advisor to this other person. Okay and you know obviously earn truthful or you wouldn't be giving this personal referral. I didn't feel that way about them. But make sure that this other person this referred prospect really understands that you're introducing them to salt one special and by by the same token really edify the perspective customer or client to the person to whom you're providing the referral this financial adviser because to the degree. That you you can have both of them feeling really good about each other before they even meet the degree that the you know the best outcome is probably going to. Yeah yeah absolutely. So why the more the the more you can elevate that person edify them and make them be the valuable person that they are. Dr And you can make that personal connection can share from your heart instead of. Hey here's somebody that I met at a networking events. You're going to a much better chance to that conversion in a lot. You know. They're much more open to take the call because what I find often is the challenge. Is that the people make introductions and you're like looking around like why do they introduced me. There's nothing there at all the time. those are the very generic introduction. It's also you know to me. It's kind of a OPA way when someone does that online. They just introduced to people to one another just because they think they should know each other And you know what we've gotTA realise different. People want to meet different ways ways so we might go to their lots well but not to the person who does want to introduce that way so You know what I like to do is I always ask permission. First from the person who is The potential customer if you will okay you know. I'd love to introduce you not love to have somebody contact you. Who is a global budget for terrific person very successful? They do business in such a way that it would be congruent with how you liked you know and so forth. Would you mind if I had you know again. Either call you if I may. Would you mind if I made a mutual email introduction. I would never do it. I without your permission estimate of don't feel obligated to. I just think this would be a great. You know whatever the person writes yes. Now I'm going to let the other person and then I'm going to send them both good edifying introduction let each of them know what the other person does what I admire above you and it doesn't have to be a lot not all it should be law. One takes a few lines in that and and then let the two of them you know. Take it from there. Yeah that makes a lot of sense so bob so how how. Much time if if we've got a fifty our sales week how much time should we spend in referrals In in terms of the the development of of I mean. I think that's one of those things that when you were we're always looking to of course drum up new business to me the prospecting aspect never stops it. It shouldn't ever stop but to the degree that you're building up this referral business. You begin prospecting within your referral market. You know what I'm saying. And and that's that's where you want to get now when you can be spending your time there you know. That's what I call the the rainbow because they think about a big beautiful multicolored like colored rainbow starts over here stretches across the sky at the end of that rainbow was that proverbial pot of gold. That pot of gold is where the prospects are Dr who Who you know are are? The chances are very good that they're qualified prospects. They need they want they desire what you offer and and they can afford it and so when that's the case you want invest a lot of your time as much time as you can prospecting within in your referral network. That makes that makes so much sense. The more he can prospect in a in a target rich environment that is full of people that actually want what you need and can afford it the better chance of closing. It's really pretty simple right. That's that's the math. That's just commonsense right. The more that I can talk to people who need what I want and can afford it totally gives them an opportunity more to buy and if then you pass that trust through now now a slam dunk right. Yeah well you know the thing about referrals. The benefits of working with referral base prospects. There's really probably hundreds but I think they come down to four one is referral pace. Prospects are easier a year to set the appointment. Obviously you're going on borrowed influence Benefit number two were referred prospect price is generally less of an issue. Now it doesn't mean it's a non issue or not Always up to justify it create where they see value here while the prices here but again when you were saying you know as you were saying it's target rich so these people are those who already kind of see the value or again the borrowed influence of the person who referred you so you can go in rather than trying to add or having to sell on low price like the others. They don't already know about you go in there being able.

"Hey Ron good morning good afternoon. Good evening where the heck you are. Whatever you're doing wherever you listen? I am super grateful for you. So hey are you doing any referral selling like are you actually earning referrals. Well Bob Berg can teach us how to get an endless supply. I of referrals not only to write the book. But he's also got an amazing workshop coming up just on the street from me in Orlando now. You are one of the seven people. That don't know Bob Berg you you are in for a treat today. Bob and I have known each other. Gosh probably almost twenty years now which is crazy. And what's cool is last year. He just got inducted into the Speaker Hall of fame and that was really cool last year or twenty eighteen. So wow time really flies But his book endless referrals is fantastic. Tickets go give her series with John. David Mann is amazing. And today we're GONNA focus on referral selling so bob. How are you today buddy? I'm great what Nice Introduction. Where were you today speaking at a client event somewhere yeah? So I'm out. At vector solutions in Rancho Bernardo California. So yeah so I've gotTa uh-huh Little Bit of Palm Fi action gone sit in a sitting in a conference room right now taking a break so they can spend some time with you and with the folks that are listening in q with you totally totally. So so bob I gotta ask man so you wrote the first edition of endless referrals quite a long time ago as it more or less relevant now than it was when you wrote the book I think referral businesses always been relevant and I I think successful sales people have always ended up having a a really big referral based business I think because I think there are more options these days and because of social media there are are probably opportunities to connect with people. We may never have been able to connect with before and so it it it. It creates an in an environment where the opportunity for deeper relationships resulting in new business and referral. Are there for us. Then it comes down down to the principles that have always been important. Utilizing those print dosing principles but on different media and sometimes people really don't kind of know how to do that. In a way in its Maybe turns people off instead of instead of Eliciting a connection. Yeah absolutely absolutely. I think that's totally true. I think that so many people kind of jump the relationship shark with referrals at that. Hey Baba Ben following on years can you refer me Johnny Johnny Smith. It's like no no you or the service you provide because I've seen it all the time right we. We people are facebook friends or their you know their digital digitally intimate and they've never had actually had a real conversation. So how do we help. How how do we define a referral? Let's start there. What is a referral? What does that mean to you? Well I mean I think they can be defined in different ways and there's certain quality of of referral you know there are leads which is you know we just sort of giving someone an idea the they may find some business there which can be helpful? But it's not necessarily something of of high quality can be referrals in terms of You know this person may or may not be interested. You can use my name Blah Blah Blah and. That's you know again five. They're the type of referrals where This person person does definitely have a need and desire. I know there in the market. You can use my name. That's you know that's of course Great but then there's also the ones in which let let me get the two of you together and let me let me let him or her know about you. I So that I can make sure that when you meet everything is already set in. You know the the borrowed influences there so I mean I so I think like anything else. There are different levels and and what we're always looking for of course. Is that that top level. Now that's not to say it's always going to work out that person's be going to be able to make the connection the first and that's okay in this kind of opens up a different door because to me generally speaking I go through the referral all gathering process with someone. Unless I know this person. This referral source is a true center of influence. Who when they reach reach out to that person that person will say yes to a meeting only because of that person and of those are golden? That's usually not the case so a lot of times someone will say will let me talk the so-and-so and if they're interested I will now let's let's assume I a priority that they are going to talk to the person because we all know how that goes right. Does that people have good intentions but they get busy. They have their own life things fall through the cracks act. But let's say they do talk to that person now they may. This person may know enough to know how to buy from us. But that doesn't mean they know how how to sell for us and when they say to this person. Hey I really want you to talk to this Guy Bob Murray has this widget that is just a fantastic and I I just invested in it. I am so happy with in. The person has a very natural objection to something like this. In which the other person either didn't in have or it was answered. Whatever the sex? Yeah but what about the so-and-so or you know of course well how much did you pay for it. And it's you know when they say that the price prices higher than that. Well it's higher. Because the value hasn't been communicated yet and while while it was communicated to this first person they don't know how communicated to the other person you know what I'm saying it's is it turns out that it turns into a well. You know what I don't know about right now but if I ever decide I want to talk to this Berg Fellow I'll let you know so it really feel I wanna be the one that actually contacts the referred prospect. Yeah that totally makes sense when I have control and I want to be able to frame the conversation and the ad value before I add volume. I want to be able to use this person's name of course of a bath fluently. But I WANNA be able to make the call because then I can do the introduction. I can ask the proper questions that is going to elicit whether there's something something there I can help this person to be very comfortable with the process and and and so forth. Yeah no that makes sense so so you mentioned all the different channels so You Know Bill Gates believes that referrals can only be done in person. Like he's off and say that and I think digitally now we have an opportunity to to be different now. We can get a referral even if we don't meet in person or even if we don't need like via zoom That we can still pass that value fourth based on a conversation. But how do we make sure that it isn't scuzzy. Right that that it does that that you as the salesperson that that you stay in control of that Bob well you do. Make sure that when you contact this person however that's been set up to do so that you do in a way that you know I always talk about if you've heard me talk about before always providing the out or the back door and the out or back doors really emotional escape hatch Escape Pass so so that somebody so that a person never feels pressured or obligated because as human beings one of our big a very big driver of human nature here is our need to be in control of ourselves right autonomy if you will and we don't WanNa feel pressure so we always want to let ignored when we first meet them again. The warning would depend on the situation itself That is something that they are interested in knowing more about what might even be so-and-so felt very strongly that you that you may be interested but of course that would be up to you and we would have to determine whether it meets your particular particular We always want to do this in a way that we frame it as though there's no pressure because there should never be any pressure in always so that this person feels as though they haven't out okay Bergh's Herbs Law of the out if you will is the bigger the out or back door you give a person to take the less. They'll feel the need to take it so you're not providing that out or back door for them to take it you're providing so that they don't feel the need of course if you feel the need to them they should they will and they showed in in what have you I. I think that's interesting because I I feel a lot of sales people. They don't WanNa give an out. They they want to. They want the tie-down right. They WANNA tie people up and somehow forest people full or make compel them to doing business with them. So you're on the exact opposite way by just saying give them a big out in fact in your book winning without intimidation use the words. You know if you can help me really appreciate it and if you can't I totally would understand. Of course. So how do we. How do we resolve that? Bob Can you give me an example sample of where you gave someone a a big out and how that actually resulted in them not taking it instead of taking it. Well let's say for example someone has said You know Bob I you know I really don't know if this is something that would that would be for not me for me or or whether or not. It's it's worth my time looking into it. Okay and the out might be something like You Know Mary while we've been able to help a lot of people with this product whether or not the right fit for view. We simply can't know without exploring deeper and discovering whether it meets your needs so please know that if we do have an initial conversation it simply for both of us to determine determine whether or not. That's ace if it does fantastic if not that's I think that's. That's so important. I I see that so often missed. I see that salespeople trip over that because they really want tie-down but I agree we don't even know if you don't know that you can serve then. Why offer the service right instead offered explorer? That's a commitment that we need to get but we have been asking the question. Would it be okay if we actually explore this us a little bit more or would it be okay because Bob says this would be a good fit. I'd like to explore to understand if that's indeed the case and this. This is also the reason why I want people to out lots and lots and lots of referrals in new prospects because as you know when you when your business is dependent upon any one person saying yes that puts a lot of pressure. You know. It's difficult to have emotional posture. When that's the case I in a sense I define emotional? Posture is when you care. But not that much you know. In in other words he'd prefer this person to be in percent of course and if they are fantastic but if not that's okay I'm going to interrupt your sense of. It's not going to come in the way of your sense of happiness now. One way to have that is by having so many people On Your List right celebrity people you can call somebody bleeding contact people who through borrowed influence in borrowed trust vicarious experience already you know your nine steps ahead of the game in that in that ten step game and when you've got that now you really don't have to concern yourself with whatever with whether any one person's interested because of they're not you can always move on to someone else and you know to that degree that you're not attached to the outcome. That's actually the degree that the outcome's going to be more in your favor because that other person can sense.

"Ourselves in the process. Happened a lot and we punish the people around us to for sure. I in an interview earlier this year with Gary Thomas. WHO's got a book out on when to walk away funding from toxicity and and he said to me Johnson in a wheat we see Jesus? This is this constant martyr that an every situation. He's smarter suggest went to the Cross one time obviously very very importantly and willingly. But there's all these times ends where Jesus bolted where Jesus like whispered like whisked himself away in the crowd because they were trying to kill him with our off a cliff or like Jesus actively resisted listed being physically hurt. Yeah and we've we kind of. Don't hold onto that as you said in our in our narrative forget or we're not taught it in society. It doesn't that doesn't sell like let's be real. It's not it's not a sellable scripture like it. It doesn't it doesn't sell it doesn't sell on. T shirts doesn't stop it doesn't look pretty And you know when there's several boundaries that Jesus made where you know he he's separated himself from the disciples to pray like I need some time right like we feel guilty taking alone time. He's walked he got movement. He ate well like we forget that he's like really holistic for some reason. Yeah like it's like we like we think of like you said as the martyr and the sacrificial act of love and we forget all the other aspects to to who he was and what that models for us now in our life and I think it's unfair for for this generation and the next generation. If we don't if we continue to paint that picture you know like I think that we can be fiercely. Devoted to God and fiercely the rooted at boundaries and loves and a commitment to healing. Because then we don't then pass on on the unhealed wounds that are ancestors carried yell we're saying like I'm the West lawn us. Yes yes absolutely. I'm trying to find a post viewers here and it's probably a little while back so remember now but you know I've heard you. I've read you write things about you. Know they're those gifts that we can give to our children of doing our own heart work of healing not passing on that non function to the next generation. Where would you say? Obviously we were. Where do we begin with that in terms of our journey but maybe just in terms of parenting context our training? That's a train. Sorry in terms of parenting context. Where where would you see making some of that shift for parents who have grown dissatisfied already with the tools rules? They had the kind of hosh disciplinarian approach. But they haven't really felt like they had permission to pursue alternative. Well hello first of all. That was me like three years ago. And so my daughter's four and right around one You know they become real people all like really opinionated. Really like they're walking they're kinda talking Panama and they're like little monsters let's be real I that was when I realized that You know I didn't. I was spanked. We talked about that earlier. I was spanked and I was raised Irish Catholic and it was lake. You know you don't talk back and you don't And so I was a very afraid prayed Austin of my parents but I kind of believed that that just what parents do two now and so when I became parents.

"A firm believer of miracles and I'm a firm believer of prayer but I'm also a firm believer of like it's a daily thing like it doesn't just go away. You know. And so part of the inner child good work in the healing work is really just tuning in that. For example if my husband upsets me often times he's triggering figuring something inside of me. That reminds me of like my mom talking to me a certain way as a kid. It's rarely ever what he's doing in the moment. I Tell People Austin like everything has been done before but but but I want to jump on my husband about it and inner child work has made my marriage better. It's made my parenting better. It's made the way I work with people in the world better because I realize that I have control over myself. You know like an I can dig league in and say. Hey God I'm GonNa use this trigger to to teach me about myself and the areas that I need to heal and so I don't think that it's one one or the other. I definitely think that it's prayer. God it's it's all it's all of it. You know what I mean. I don't think that we have to pick. I think that God provides us tools that we can use you know. And he's like. Hey this has been here for you and And it's working because like I said in those moments where my child triggers me. I realize it's often about me and nothing about them. Yes yeah okay. Well I can relate to that so much like I've I've been a very emotionally Ford kind of guy and have struggled with that especially like as how I fit into masculine culture. Sure and and in the last couple of years I've been becoming a bit more at peace with my own emotions and and back in January. I felt like the Lord's say to me. Jonathan surrounded you with people who love you and you're the only one who doesn't believe it and actually you're the only one who can bring your heart hard to believe it and I had no grit for for that and I did a I did a podcast right here with a guy who said to me Johnson. You could spend a whole year just learning to love yourself what would happen. What do you think would happen right? You know you know someone says something to you and it lodges it sticks in You like told away but it's only because has the whole was already there to be lodged by lake and so you know we. We searched so often for people to affirm us and to accept us and to you remind us of our greatness and we spend very little time doing that for ourselves. And that's what inner child work is is that it's literally sang. I don't need anything in the world. Complete may like God made me whole and Yes I've made mistakes. Yes there's areas of my life that I wish were different affront. But I'm learning to love myself and I will say.

"And he was named one of the top. I two hundred most influential authors in the world by rich topa. Please join me in welcoming. Bob berg a rottie great to be with you bob. Thank you so switch from joining me your from your office. You're down in florida in jupiter florida. It's awesome heavy on here year book and your name has been brought up a dozen anti is probably on this show in the last two three years and <hes> and my guess particularly have gone back just to the go giver the book sort of kicked his whole thing off off <hes> so i'm thrilled to have you here because i think what what i believe in what we've been talking about this show you embody in so many ways and that book in particular parable shares that story so the context that i want to talk about this though is is around leadership because as you would agree you know no one's no one succeeds on their own and so those who've been very successful have done and so in a community with the support of others around them. So how do you define leadership. And when did you realize you have the skills to lead well. I always enjoyed john maxwell's definition when he said leadership is influence nothing more nothing nothing less now to to unpack that i think we have to i d define influence itself right and i would define an influence at a on a very basic level as the ability to move a person or persons to a desired action usually within the context context of a specific goal now. I think that's the definition of network of <hes> of liotta influence. I don't believe that is the essence of of influence in this will go back to leadership in a moment. The essence of influence really is pull pull as opposed to push <hes> as hasn't how far can you push a rope and we know the answer is not bury at least not very fast very effectively which is why great influencers and great leaders. Don't push you rarely hear someone say wow that david or that suzanne. She is so influential such a great leader. She is just so pushy cushy. We just love follow right now. Of course they wednesday. She has a lot of push. They'd say she has a lot of pull because that's what it is. It's an attraction how how does a leader <hes> in influence sir. How do they attract well. They attract not through placing their interest on on themselves right. They <hes> law number three of the go. Give her the law of influences. Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interest. I this doesn't doesn't mean you're a doormat. It doesn't mean you're a martyr doesn't mean you're self sacrificial not at all it simply means that all things being equal people will do business with and they'll allow themselves to be led or influenced by those people they know like and trust and there's no faster more powerful more impactful way to elicit those those feelings towards you from others than by what we call moving from an eye focus or me focus to an other focus okay looking to make your win all about the other person's win so leadership indeed is the ability to move a person or persons to a desired action action but it's doing so in a way that you tie your goal into there's right so the great leader the great influence or doesn't just assume that the other person's gonna follow them because they want them to follow them. Okay what they're going to do is they're going to ask themselves questions and this is how oh you get that sense of pull that attractiveness they asked him so. How does what i'm asking this other person to do. How does it align with their goals with their wants. Their needs with their desires. How does what i want this other human being to do how does it align with their values and when we ask ourselves those questions thoughtfully and intelligently a genuinely authentically again not as a way to manipulate another person into doing our will but as a way of of building everyone in the process now our influence and hence our leadership is sky high. You know you asked me. A question winded winded i. I know that i had kind of that ability. Well it the it's really. When did i realize i didn't have that ability because i yeah i began in sales <hes> and did well and was promoted to sales manager in this case it would be sales leader and i quickly quickly came to see. I was not a leader. I was producer. I was not leader. I didn't realize those are two different things so just as when i first got into sales soon as i discovered i didn't know anything about sales and that i needed to know and i learned how to sell well. I then said okay. I don't know anything about leadership at all. I need to learn learn how to lead and ice began to get books and back then was tapes and you know and so forth in that was really it so i didn't. I wasn't the leader at first. I had to develop into one so i wanted to pause here and just think about what you said a definition and this rope rope analogy <hes> came up with the other day. Actually matt ward used it as well. I think it's such a good example of thinking about <hes> if he says i love that person is so pushy i it's just a bubble mini where exactly follow them everywhere. They will no. I'll i'll get i'll get shoved in any direction action. Exactly no one does that. I like how you tied leadership to influence and that it's it's about tying your serve desire her <hes> an intentions of where you wanted me going to there's and i actually you're making me think of an early time. I was in college and i was running. One of those you know college groups oops and i was trying to get people engaged and i would ask them sort of figure out like what was i was on everyone at a one thing that would motivate them to take action and support the group and not not just like hanging around and one of them ended up being the person who helped us plan a huge party that to them was party but really it was a fundraiser and they pick the d._j. Day they pick the venue and it was like all the things are passionate about and knew a lot about and dot got them invested and then actually became a much more involved. I guess you would call like productive part of the group because they felt seen and appreciated for that what they're piece was completely changes the dynamics so much better than at barking orders at people so i want to dig into a little bit further into back in the day when you were a kid and you were in class asked. Were you like raise your hand and volunteering report of things where you where people seeing leadership potential in you where you kinda quiet reserved you organize. Is your friends in the playground like like who were you when you started out all of this because it's hard to imagine you not being who you are today so i'm kinda wanted to get a picture of what used to be like yeah. That's a great question on the <hes> in the playground on the athletic field. I was much more of a leader than let's say in the in the classroom because i didn't feel as confident in the classroom i felt more confident you know on the playground <hes> which didn't mean i didn't have my fears there as well well. It just meant that i i felt more comfortable <hes> <hes> in that scenario so i think like anything else that if you have a <hes> an inclination inclination to lead. I think you're gonna do that. Where you feel you can add value even though of course at that age and i think my adding value to my friend note you're just doing it because let's make it natural in that in that context whereas in the classroom i was totally disinterested in did not respect the process of school school and so no. I didn't take on anything that you weren't running for office. You weren't doing those kinds of outward. The leadership roles yeah no not really as you headed off to school and later early careers did did you like how did you end up being sows later. Was that something that someone saw. Oh hey bob would be really good at this or you asking for the hannibal <hes> well. I began as a broadcaster. I in radio as a sportscaster and then i was a newscaster astor on a in a in a very small market in the midwestern united states a very small a._b._c. affiliate in <hes>. I i really wasn't very good at robin and i wasn't going to be doing it for a long time. I could tell so. I took a job in sales. I just to make some extra money. I will again. I was in a small market. I wasn't making money and i could tell right away that i liked sales <hes> but i i again i i didn't know how to sell and the training at that company was <unk> will say negligible at best so floundered for the first few months until i went into a bookstore and i saw a couple books on selling which just shocked me. I didn't know that the thing you know i mean i just been taught. Go in talk about your product. Get them to sign the contract and that's it. You know i mean that's i think about that. I cringe but <hes> but once i learned how to do it. You know not now. That was a different now. I had a system and when i taught think about systems i personally define a system as the process <unk> of predictably achieved the goal based on a logical specific set of how to principals so the key is predictability of. It's been proven that by doing a you'll get the desired result of me than you. All you need to do a you know in your in your going to eventually get the desired results of <hes> so i found success that way <hes> and then eventually i was tapped for a leadership job in sales only because i think <hes> you know the the the boss of the time figured that well if i could sell that well i could probably leave that well and of course he was wrong a saving it is the saving grace was i went out on appointments appointments with the sales people all the time so i and i would have them watch me and where i would watch them and and because of that i could be <music> somewhat effective because i was out in the field doing it but the actual leadership heart <hes> no i was just awful off but then you had any any resource though you realize that they were books on selling so then you'd realize there must be books on leadership and then you sort of did some self education an because you ended up writing endless referrals. That's like your first runaway hit. <hes> what when was that that was back in the early to mid nineties <hes> i had been speaking for a few years <hes> and of course endless referrals was really kind of just a how to guide to help entrepreneurs and sales people who <hes> they knew they had a great product or service. They were proud of it. They were proud of the value. They could bring others but they weren't <hes>. They weren't comfortable in the process of meeting to yeah. Of course this is what u._t. So you're you're an expert that now you're teaching lots and lots of beer that next generation of the the network when people are teaching people how to do that and create those wonderful relationship relationship so we're you know we're glad to have people like you out there who are carrying the torch and and in in taking that <hes> in so <hes> i i wrote that first i book really just as a positioning to join just join national speakers association a couple years previous and a few of the people there said berg. If you wanna get your business the next level you really got to write a book. You're going to get be more marketable. You're gonna get higher fees going you know so forth it sounded reasonable to me and it turned out to be a really good good move <hes> but that first one was simply written for utilitarian purposes.

"burg" Discussed on Speaking of Diversity and Inclusion
"I'm enjoying this immensely. Oh wonderful wonderful wonderful so I have about four other concepts of what did you to kind of walk us through it because one thought to be. I thought was really interesting. Was this idea of be via judge and not a lawyer right. So what was the judge not? So what's the difference between those two concepts yet? This was actually From the Tomlin where they're talking about the difference in in being involved in a discussion. You could say a debate. And they say be a judge not a lawyer and that is a a lawyer. Is there for the purpose of arguing? A certain point four their side. That is what they're paid to do. That's their responsibility. You know within the law of course and with an ethically but their job is to make the case for their whereas the judge is there to look at things objectively way the things right and to be able to then come to a decision And unless we're actually a lawyer arguing case we should be a judge because only then are we able to see the situation as opposed to just hearing one side of the issue when it comes to decision making we. We need to have the facts in front of us. We need to have both sides of the issue but not only both sides but all size. Because it's not usually You know sometimes they say well. There are three sides to every argument. You know one side to side and somewhere in the middle but somewhere it's not even sometimes it's not even in the middle sometimes way outside those points so we need to listen as objectively as we can. That's what a judge does as opposed to a a lawyer. Wonderful wonderful wonderful Let's see oh you talk about not non-serbian beliefs right. So how? How a belief Benun serving or with a. Yeah a way to think about that. Yeah you know what when we talk about beliefs again. It's understanding that most of these were given to us. We did not consciously accept these beliefs as truths We just accepted them as crude. Because we're too young Qanoni different right so again. Whether it's environment parents teachers you know at a at a very young age and so let's say someone grows up someone someone grows up hearing that Oh people with money are nasty people they got there by taking advantage of others or by doing it on the backs of others or by being right and someone grows up with that. That's a non serving belief. Because really when you think about it especially the more free market a community is a society is when I remarked. I simply no one's forced to do business with anyone else. Only way someone will do business with someone is is when that when they feel it will They'll be better off by doing so. Which means the entrepreneur the salesperson the business person needs to provide. They need to focus on providing exceptional value to others. And what we would even say is. Money is simply an echo of value. It's the thunder to values lightning. Which really means that? The value must be the focus. The value comes first. The money you receive is a very natural result of the value you provided however what if someone grows up with a belief that money is bad rich people bad they you know they can well. You can be providing exceptional value to many many people but when it comes time to be able to receive that that money if unconsciously your belief system says money is bad people with money or you know. Wealthy people are bad. I don't WANNA be bad. So what we do is touch thing with relationships. You look at relationships where someone grows up as the product of a very of relent. Very turbulent turbulent relationship marriage where to them parents argue with each other. They're more enemies than they are friends. They're more right well. This person grows up. It's not that they consciously seek out a partner like that but in their way of seeing the world in their belief system their subjective truth. That's what a relationship is in. That's why you know. They tend to if they're having a good relationship they sabotage that in they find someone who doesn't again those are just believes that don't serve us and so what I talk about is we need to move from that unconscious. Belief System That unconscious operating system right that we talked about earlier and go into consciousness live in consciousness. Check our premises. Always ask ourselves. Why do I feel this way? Why do I believe this? Who DID I learn it? From how do they know this? Is this definitely bat? Who told him it would right. And so the more we can drill down and really live in a mode of conscious awareness bass the degree we can rid ourselves of those non serving beliefs and take on believes that service and of course serve the world around us. Yeah Tucked in that concept as you're talking about I was thinking is also having goals for myself right so If I have goals those beliefs aren't serving those goals than it back. Those will be non serving. Oh but again to your previous point if they are serving the then. I'm not going to change. And I don't see a need for change rise deserving right so We think they're serving when they're not because our view of the world says this is just the way it is. I get so that's why again we have to go and we all do this. I mean I I do this. And it's something. We constantly have to work on it to work in progress. You know it but but that's life in that is human nature. Yeah yeah no I feel like we are were brothers and how we are. We see the world because we talked about to burst in inclusion. All things all the tools that you're giving us are the things we want people to be mindful of hiring process in the advancement of of people in their workplaces as a manager supervisor to be really critical. Am I operating with these belief systems? That may not necessarily be serving because the world is changing. Context is changing though as an effective leader Dapper to those contexts Yeah Yeah Yeah so Just other things that I wanted to To hit a one stop speak good and how influence or build a team. Can we speak to to this idea of speaking? Well you know it's funny. And we all know the power of the tongue right it can build or it can destroy. Gossip is which your to me. I defined gossip as the unnecessary sharing of any harmful or hurtful information. Okay So would that definition there can be no good. Dasa right well. What about good gossip. Well if it's the unnecessary sharing of harmful or hurtful information there can't be there can be information exchanges. There can be good news but no gossip is very nature is a negative. Okay if if you go with that. That definition that the unnecessary Sherry now. Is it ever necessary to share something that's harmful or hurt well? There's times I if someone's stealing from the company. Yeah you've got to be able to let the appropriate person no Even then you need to do it in a way that you're not saying anything more than you have to you not saying. Oh and by the way with that person has bad breath It would be. I know I have reason to believe that this exit you know in due but But when we reverse that and we always look for ways to speak good if people again. That's something I learned from my dad and I'm forever grateful that he always found something good to say about someone in what he did and I wrote an article about this once. That's been all over the world and and just because people have picked up on it and share it and it's how he you know when someone could try to speak ill of someone he'd he wouldn't acknowledge up instead he would find what the good was in that other person and get the other person to agree with that and and see the good in what my dad would do is he would only spread things to others when good was spoken about them and so we always created goodwill among people. And that's something I've just always tried to do. And I don't think I've ever done. It is is wonderfully as my dad has but it's something. I've always tried to do and when I hear someone good saying something about someone said when I hear someone saying in good about someone else I make sure that other person knows that in these two people end up being even better. Closer friends may be or what have you? But so if we'RE GONNA if we're going to repeat anything repeat the good now again. I'm not in Pollyanna there's times and we. Hey there's times we have to Critique some one or we have to constructively criticizing we're talking about the real world but that's attacked comes in and my my dad again. I. I don't Mean to Brag about my dad I knew you great parents as well. And so it's it's you know but my dad has always defined tack as the language of strength and. I've always enjoyed that because to me it takes strength to not just you know fire back at someone who says something that you don't agree with to send email reply when so or to you know. Speak to someone in a way that that you're going to regret later on because it wasn't the best choice of words. I think tank is really being able to communicate information to someone that they may not ordinarily enjoy hearing or welcome such a way that not only. Are they not defensive toward you or resistant to your idea? What they're open to you and they're more accepting of your idea because of the way it was expressed too so. I know you've mentioned your Dan a couple of times. This actually isn't in my notes. But just with you. Where do you think where did your dad get? This level of self actualization this level of interpersonal the importance of interpersonal relationships. With what do you think were there? If it's in his life that Russ him to have these realizations or it was kind of a cumulation over over a lifetime. Experience is that he was able to say this. So I guess my core questions Was there a single event or was was this over a lifetime. He was able to come to these things. You gleaned from. I think in my dad's case it really was a gift. It really was Because typically this kind of thing that I talk about people skills if you will which is a very important part of success is typically learned. Okay in most people don't have that natural copy. He had a gift of this. He grew up very very poor. Americana the the immigrant slums the the in the middle of the depression and the You know growing up depression leaving home to fight in World War Two and you know that whole greatest generation you know type of thing but really in the so he had nothing you know when when.

Yeah, no offense. I like you, which. It's a job where you talk about games, but I really wish I was playing the game. How what level are you ballpark you right now? How how much time have you put into firewall time? Put in? I would probably say easily over twenty hours allow. Yeah, probably close to thirty this point. Oh, wow. Yeah, Kevin, I've done like having two or three nights, and it's that thing of also playing right at launch. So there was so they're working connection problems at launch. It was a little hard spotting up and then going, but this whole squad wasn't on the team and like what the hell it's going. Yeah. So I did some games with developers while I was dreaming and I did, you know, some private lobby so I could just get in and make sure that there are no issues. But I think I'm seventeen right now, so I'm I'm getting up there. It's it's another, I think, bummer I know has for some people, it's a video game what to care, but the fact that private matches don't give you XP. Yeah, I want a lot cool stuff go, no private match. Where in what Kevin I we're talking about is we think we're just gonna start prime matches because we're so bad. Six or seven. Okay. So let me tell you about something you're going to encounter soon. Have you have you ran into the signal modifier yet? No. So this is an item that someone on the defending team can place within a certain radius of the laptop, and unless you destroyed that signal Jamie, I, you can't hack the laptop. You can get creative with it. So for example, on the office level, if the laptops upstairs, you can place the jammer downstairs on the ceiling below the laptop. Yeah, these are pro level stress with this yet there. Oh, it gets so fresh and you can have to jammers. No Lord. Yeah, it's ridiculous. And that really makes it very, very the end because after you kill all of the defenders as the attacking team, you still have to get the laptop, right? There's there's a countdown going. Yes, it gets intense when there's minds everywhere and you don't know where the jammer is and you have to listen to the beeping and it's yes, see, I wanna get to that, but I also wanna play my friends who are equally as bad as us look for tweets from me and Kevin about. Being firewall.
