#07 Cannabidiol (CBD): Hype or Hero?
"You're listening to the curious about cannabis podcast before we get started here. Let me just share a little disclaimer in this episode? We're going to be discussing. The medical uses of cannabis. Now all the information I present to you in this podcast in general is for education and entertainment purposes only and should definitely not be considered medical advice. Please never make decisions about your health based on anything. You hear me or any other podcast host talk about. I'm simply sharing information that I've collected from talking with professionals with relevant experience or from research studies that are available out there that have been published. But I'm not a doctor. You should always get your medical advice from a licensed healthcare professional now with that out of the way. Let's move on these days. Cd's all the hype ladies how everybody is talking about. Cb oil now comes to the cannabis plan and many believe that can help with everything from Zaidi and chronic pain diabetes even cancer. We're in the midst of a CBD oil boom the two thousand eighteen farm bill paved the way for legal hemp production in the United States seeming to open up a multi-billion dollar him market. That was now up for grabs of all the potential surrounding legal hemp. There was one section of the market the head. Everyone's attention and that's the CBD market. It's estimated that over a thousand. Cbd brands came onto the market in two thousand nineteen and it's estimated that approximately a quarter of the US population has tried CBD. Health claims have been boasted and promoted by CD Companies Doctors Entertainers and social media influencers. So what's the deal is C. D? Legit or is it just another snake oil? And what does she actually do to your body in this episode? We explore the history and the science of the canal annoyed. That's currently all the craze nabbed. I'll or as you probably know it. Cbd Hey everybody. This is Jason Wilson with the curious about cannabis podcast. Thanks much for tuning in once again in this episode. We're going to be taking a close look. At one of the most popular tabloid produced by the Cannabis Plant and that's NAPA. Dial or as it's better known. Cbd INTO GUIDE OUR CURIOUS QUEST. We're going to be exploring several primary questions one two how does CBD affects the body and the three what are CBD's potential therapeutic applications as well as some of its limitations risks so without further ado? Let's get started for the past. Few years has been big business. The price of a single one ounce bottle of CBD. Tincture can range anywhere from fifty dollars to two hundred dollars or more. Compare that to the average cost of a one. Ounce bottle of a different herbal extract. Tincture like ECHINACEA or elderberry though typically costs somewhere between ten dollars and twenty dollars but what is CB CB is an oily compound produced in the resins of cannabis plant now whether the canvas plants considered him or marijuana they both producing CD. Typically outside of some uncommon exceptions in the United States. Hemp is classified as canvas plants that contain less than zero point three percent. Thc In other countries limit can be even lower sometimes as low as zero point two percent THC instead of THC which is the primary intoxicating compound found campus varieties. They're often called marijuana. The primary Varieties of cannabis tend to produce is connect dial. Cbd THANKS TO INTENTIONAL. Breeding efforts CB can now be found in concentrations as high as twenty or twenty percent and hip plants intended for CBD rich resin production now CBD's markedly different than thc to start cd doesn't really cause any intoxicating or you work effects like THC. Does this features gotten the attention of a lot of people ranging for medical researchers that want to unlock the potential therapeutic effects of cannabis without the risk of abuse and all the way to consumers that. Just WANT TO CHECK OUT CANNABIS. But they're not looking to get high although CBD is not intoxicating it is psychoactive meaning that it does elicit effects from your neurons in your brain this is a common misunderstanding about CBD. It is psychoactive but it is not intoxicating the story of CBD goes back. Thousands of years as cultures across time have used non psychoactive McGregor. Myself Non intoxicating varieties of cannabis for different uses but the most relevant part of our story really starts in nineteen forty when researchers Roger Adams. Madison Hunt and J. H. Clarke published a report indicating the structure of a compound that they had extracted an isolated from wild hemp and Minnesota shout out to listeners and Minnesota your apart. Cbd History these researchers name this compound cabot dial or CBD as it would become commonly known CD was only the second cannabinoid found cannabis at the time with the first being canaveral or CBN a degradation product of THC in nineteen forty four. It was discovered that the effects of barbiturates could be extended if administered with CD but not with C. B. N. or. Thc researchers didn't understand why this effect was happening and they wouldn't get their answer to almost thirty years later for a moment in nineteen sixty three scientists in Israel would shine light on CBD once again until a year later in nineteen sixty four when they announced the discovery of THC as the intoxicating component of campus after that CD would become a bit more ignored once again until round the seventies and eighties when research into CBD really began to pick up steam in nineteen seventy to be discovered that CBD actually inhibits certain enzymes in the body which affects how the body metabolize certain foods and drugs. This helped begin to complete the puzzle that stemmed from the barbiturates study that was performed in nineteen forty four. Nearly three decades prior that we talked about previously in Nineteen eighty-one researchers were able to demonstrate anti-convulsant effects of CBD and humans indicating that it might be an effective treatment for certain forms of epilepsy and specificity in one thousand nine hundred eighty two year later. Cbd was found Exhibit Anti Anxiety Effects. Which would later be reconfirmed in Nineteen ninety-three in one thousand nine hundred five. It was discovered that CBD improves symptoms of psychosis ended. Nineteen Ninety Eight. The United States government actually filed a patent on the antioxidant neuro protective effects of CBD as well as Thc the two thousands would become the decade of elucidating the activity of CBD in two thousand and one researchers begin to finally understand more about how CBD actually works in the body by revealing that CBD targets non-cabinet receptors in the body that it stimulates the production of at least one. Indo cannabinoid an and denied and it inhibits and enzyme responsible for breaking down and might effectively allowing an to linger in the body longer in two thousand and two researchers would then confirm that CD exhibits anti nausea effects which had already been reported as far back as the eighteen hundreds when systematic cannabis research really began to take shape in two thousand and four. It was discovered that certain dosages. Cbd can increase wakefulness and counteract THC and do sedation. So if you're feeling a little sleepy after using THC cannabis a little bit of CBD Might Wake. You backup however be careful because CBD exhibits. What is known as by Faiza Activity? Meaning it acts differently in low doses versus high doses at high doses. Cbd CAN ACTUALLY BE SEDATING. In two thousand and five it was discovered that CD interacts with certain serotonin receptors in the body and in two thousand six researchers will go on to discover that CD also enhances a denizen receptor signaling which is associated with heart health blood pressure and body temperature regulation was also in two thousand six that researchers discovered that. Cbd Can kill breast cancer cells bringing significant attention to the compound as a potential anticancer drug into thousand seven researchers began to understand why CBD reduced the effects of THC in some of their prior research. It turns out that. Cbd CHANGES THE SHAPE and activity of CB one receptors even though it doesn't really exhibit much affinity for CB wonder sceptres directly in this way. It changes the way that teach actually binds to the CBO interceptor modulating. Its activity this. Kind of activity is called. Alistair modulation this why. Cd's able to reduce the high associated with THC It essentially deforms the CB wonder sceptre so that THC can't elicit same reaction from the receptor when it binds to it in two thousand and eight. It was discovered that. Cbd was a potent antibiotic against Mersa a powerful infection that's commonly picked up in hospitals and often resist treatment in two thousand twelve researchers discovered that. Cbd May be as effective as standard anti psychotics and in two thousand fourteen it was discovered the CD might be able to effectively treat acne in the skin by reducing inflammation fighting bacteria on the skin and changing the way that the skin produces oil in two thousand eighteen in the United States the Agricultural Improvement. Act of two thousand eighteen also known as the two thousand eighteen farm bill was passed which effectively legalised temp across the United States including all of the AIDS and other chemical constituents of all varieties of cannabis had thc concentrations the low zero point three percent and with that CBD was removed from the controlled substances list as long as the CD was him derived. Some may say that the CD market began at this time but really see beauty. Products had already been available in foods cosmetics and dietary supplements widely for years prior to the legalisation of him operating in somewhat of a regulatory gray area and then in twenty nineteen EPA dialects would officially become an FDA approved pharmaceutical for the treatment of certain forms of epilepsy in children the status of CBD as a pharmaceutical drug presents a real problem for the CD industry as a whole the FDA does not allow drugs to be added to foods or supplements unless they've been marketed as foods or supplements previously this is due to a set of laws in the food drugs and Cosmetics Act. Of course the irony is that the CBD industry's been around for quite some time not considering the exposure that humans have had to CD throughout history just from their interactions with cannabis cannabis in all its forms have been prohibited in the US for almost ninety years. So of course cannabis derived products have not been openly marketed and sold in the food drug and cosmetics act was enacted in nineteen. Thirty eight. Right around the exact same time that cannabis prohibition began considering that cannabis was included in the States Pharmacopoeia? For many years. All the way up until prohibition began. It's clear that cannabis derived products had been a part of society well into the Nineteen Thirties. And would have persisted. Had It not been for cannabis prohibition so in the nineteen thirties the opportunity for canvas to mature alongside the food supplement? Industries was effectively eliminated and the only pathway to get federally legal cannabis. Drive products to the public was through pharmaceuticals and now that him derive. Cbd AND OTHER AVENUES ARE FEDERALLY LEGAL. Ninety years later the government argues that it can't be put into food or supplements because it's a drug just seems like an awkward argument when you take the full history into account another argument that the FDA argues for resisting making any exceptions for CD in him derives cannabinoid in foods or supplements that there's not adequate data available to show that CBD is safe. They've argued that CBD could cause liver damage and interact with other drugs and thus it should be researched longer before it's allowed to be widely available to be consumed. The study they cite for this concern is a recent rodent study that looked at dosages that were orders of magnitude higher than the highest dosages used incomparable clinical trials for EPA dialects. I should point out that in this study dosages of fifteen milligrams per kilogram of body weight or less or not found exhibit these toxic effects and that's approximately nine hundred thirty milligrams or just round up to a gram of pure. Cbd for an average sized person. I spoke with Dr Ethan Russo about his thoughts on the idea of CBD causing liver damage. There's some concern lately too. And there's controversy of controversy over some of it but about the liver toxicity of high doses of CBD as well. Well I I think that's a blind alley it'd be truthful obviously Lower dose would be better but The liver issues mainly related to elevations of liver function tests and this is in Generally children Who are in Poly Pharmacy with a number drugs? Particularly of perk acid which is all known for being a bad actor in terms of Ltl avation arm so my strong suspicion is that's related to Poly Pharmacy Multiple Drugs rather than than a specific effect of Canal. Dial should also be noted that the World Health Organization issued a report on CD very recently attesting to CBD's remarkable safety profile at the time of this recording the future of the CBD industries very uncertain as him farmers CD product manufacturers and legislators plead their cases for changes to allow the CD industry to continue operating as it has with CBD foods dietary supplements and cosmetics readily available to consumers and now states are taking matters into their own hands just as they had to do with anything related to cannabis and they're setting their own laws for CD and now there's a patchwork of state legislation across the United States in regards to cbd any State Law protects a marijuana byproduct. That doesn't have mind altering properly inspected. Cbc products are now completely legal in the state and that's good news for farmers and companies who make those products as it essentially creates a new industry here in Ohio the crater question lingering around the FDA's involvement in the industry is whether the FDA will actually take action against these CBD companies today. They primarily seem concerned with going after companies making medical or health claims about CD but that could change in the future but the FDA is always going to go after companies making unapproved medical claims because that's in violation of the dietary supplement health and Education Act of Nineteen ninety-four which made it illegal to make such claims without FDA approval may also hear this rule referred to as DJ. Now this is why you see an FDA statement on every dietary supplement label which says something to the effect of these claims have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease and yet we see plenty of medical claims being made about CBD products. It really seems as though the only pathway forward to booming legal. Cbd industry across the country through changes to federal law to allow an exception for CD and other hemp derived natural products. Put any law. Changes that are proposed. Should be carefully worded. Even if CD is allowed in foods and supplements if a law change does not also determine. That CD is generally recognized as safe or grass than there could be another set of problems for the CD industry to tackle food additives like plant extracts and essential oils after have grasped status to be freely added to foods or formulated into supplements until the FDA takes on the role of doing this research and granting grass status to CPA and other cabinet itself. It's going to be up to private companies to do their own extensive research to achieve. What's called self affirmed grass status which only applies to their specific products and not their competitors even if their competitors using essentially the exact same ingredients as essentially makes a playing field. Where only the most well-funded CD companies can survive long term to put this into perspective gathering all the data needed to successfully achieve self affirmed grass status can cost as much is a million dollars or more at a time when the value. Cds A commodity is rapidly shrinking along with CD product margins. This is a difficult task for small or medium sized him companies to pull off without coming together and pooling their resources so okay these Cebu products there on the market. We know people are using them. Despite you know the feedback that the FDA's given so what are people actually experiencing with CBD? Since the two thousand eighteen farm bill was passed. Cbd shops have popped up across the country and even large retail chains. Like Kroger Fred Meyer. Cvs and walgreens starting to carry CBD products additionally specialized him in CD focused wellness. Stores have made their way into neighborhoods in cities across the United States. I spoke with Wendy win. An owner of a premiere CD shop in New York City about her experience operating. Cbd's store in a sense. I think the neighborhood felt like they were on the joining with US versus versus having huge the award redone so they knew they knew all that and they embraced with open arms. You know so. That's something that we are very lucky to have so. In the end I think for Artemis we get clients who are very curious about CBD. With I saw so they want the side. You WanNa know everything or we usually get there. Were there last thought. Would they meet with? Tried everything Detroit going on pain medications. Try going all that it wanted approaching much more of a natural plant based approach and we do get some kinds are in the middle with the China ended. Were coming back for another offer that most likely issue ships at the end that we get you know. And since we've been around now for few months would get off the middle which is try their CD other stores in other for second opinion. And they're coming to US without I opened. It wasn't like that op. Ed We have people who are so supportive and like we lost. Cbd WanNa try it you can see. My mother tried it or my dog right. Yeah anything that the other end of the spectrum where they came to challenge. Which was you know what what are you guys doing the sny. Fda approved at all so we saw the breath of clients that we were getting and you know and we really honestly appreciated the support off so the criticism because helped us grow as brand. That just meant that. We had to read a lot more books. That just meant that. We had to provide a lot more educational tools in the store and we designed the store actually twice to meet those demands right before I Open. Our Education Board was limited mainly because we didn't know what we needed to say as in what was helpful for clients But we did that. Education Board up probably a month after we quit because we realize this was a need that the thing will happen. And also we designed it to have a section where there's books available and as we were developing We started really working closely with Dr Chin. Slow the education side key much more up I think. Full breath a later on at war. Spawning for clients needs and with that being said to will. We redesigned the wall. Titrate was something that people don't understand. There's something I didn't understand when I first started down now and we realize that reading milligrams chew volumes to very very confusing and a Lotta time clients. Come in like I'm taking CD and it's not working and it will go. Kay how how much you taking a whole? What does that mean France? We don't know what was the bottle we don't know so. We realized that the map is fear that there there needed to be a little bit more guidelines on on intake and all that so we designed a section of the shop to be focused tight tradition. Which is that. You know exactly what you're taking with formulation Ran You're taking. And then we started designing a little Serving guides for clients so every time when a client walks away. They're walking away with a serving guy to to to couple with whatever off a so. All of that was really feedback. We've talked all the clients interaction that we had at the beginning of arts. One question that was on my mind when I was speaking with people about cbd was what dosages are needed to actually get an effect CBD products on the market. Have potencies of anywhere from one hundred thousands of milligram per one ounce bottle of oil when I reviewed the available scientific literature found that there wasn't a lot of information. Available EPA dialects clinical trials utilized. Essages a five milligrams per kilogram of body weight up to twenty milligrams per kilogram of body weight or around three hundred ten milligrams to nearly fifteen hundred milligrams for an average sized person in two thousand nineteen. There was a review of dosages that were utilized in published. Cbd Studies and it was found that dosages below around two and a half milligrams per kilogram of body weight were largely ineffective at treating most of the conditions that were being measured except for things like sleep disorders anxiety now that would be around one hundred fifty milligrams of CBD for an average person however the research on CD dosing complicated by the fact that CBD exhibits unique efficacy when it's administered isolation versus when it's administered in the presence of other cannabinoid peens and other fighter chemistry from the cannabis plant many clinicians that. I spoke with commented that they were seeing much better results at lower dosages with broad or full spectrum. Cbd versus isolate. It was interesting when we first started out. We thought half of our patients didn't want THC in their product. This is Dr James Taylor. A pain physician working in. North Carolina ever since hemp became federally legal in the United States. He's been working with his patients to understand how him extracts and CBD particularly might be a tool to help treat chronic pain so we gave him just CBD in the others did one a little. Thc In what we found is are once again in the waiting room the people who were trying the CBD products the ones that had a little bit of THC and had a full spectrum for having profound results. Those that were on the isolate weren't having such profound results so it was in the waiting room that the patients were talking so when they came back to the office visit they said. Hey I don't WanNa take the damn taken. I want to think it was the patients that were coming back telling us that the full spectrum was superior over an isolate so I'm assuming these large doses that folks need with the the deal oxen the CBD isolate is because a inferior product. And you can take much less. If you're taking a full spectrum product I asked Dr Taylor what dosages. He was noticing that his patients were finding relief with and this is what he had to say. My patients tend to be the poor and the elderly. They don't have a lot of money. Sure so we always recommend them to to start low. Go slow riots kind of in the industry. Everybody says that well our patients have to because they can't afford a thousand milligrams model and they've got they can. Were the two hundred fifty milligram bottle in so a lot of our patients tend to find relief in the eight to fifteen milligram A day range and I feel like a lot of that is is financial pressure. That can help. Keep them there Those that seem to be a little bit more successful Typically get up to thirty to forty milligrams a day and I am seeing in very general terms because we have patients with all kinds of different pain problems whether it's a inflammatory component or it's a it's a bone on bone type of pain or a neuropathic type of pain They're all different some generalizations but we have books that are taking two milligrams a day And some that are taking two hundred milligrams a day. So it's very hard for me to say what Milligram Works for folks So I do like to go start. Low go slow in. Just find a really where you're going to settle in but for me that's also we found that also doesn't make sense either because it's the cannabinoid profile That really makes a difference and we started seeing this in our practice. In the we were obtaining a product from a one extractor and then we started obtaining products from another extractor and our patients were having completely different effects. Right used to make me sleep now. It makes me awake and we were Lincoln cash. It's it's the same. No we looked under the hood and looked at the cannabinoid profile and it was a completely different ratio are there was hardly any. Thc In this product and there was nearly point three percent. Thc In this so we started realizing white. Cbd is kind of a In this industry while we've been talking about CBD other minutes easy for the consumer to think like that but it's really cannabinoid bright and it's these ratios cannabinoid. They're important and I think that's what really stimulated us to say. Gosh we have to start looking at this a little differently in but little more scientifically in. It's so much more complex than we realized. Reynosa we did a lot of retrospective data looking at these thousands of patients. We have taken this over the last two years in when we plotted out. It was not anything that we expected. And I wish I could show you an example where we put a positive responders in shades of green and a negative responders to a particular Whether we're talking about sleep or pain or anxiety In shades of red and it was just a mixture of green and red so. Cd's now this wonderful thing. That's going to turn everybody green and it works for everybody. Know it half the people working positively for in the other half. It's working negatively for all different things done. That's when we realized this is very complex Very individualized and I think that's what we started really paying attention To we need to start looking at people's genetics and epigenetics so we understand what they're bringing to the table And then I think eventually at the end of the day it's matching those up a genetics with certain cannabinoid profiles in order to modulate the system to a desired effect. I also asked Wendy would dosages. She was using to manage some of her pain and anxiety symptoms. So I remember I read all the books I said Micra Dunes and so I started with five milligrams. I didn't really feel much on five. Hogan's to newly I had an episode. A really really bad and I so can not working so I just took fifty. I said Yeah fifty which was not a good idea it. It worked wonders. Shifty was incredible. It really helped with my pain I also had a patch onto as well so I was kicking milligrams twice a day as documented and then I realized that after three or four days it stopped working like it perfect then it stopped working out back to Dr Juno Latte and I said what's happening like fifty was gray and the now's not working and she said potentially you might have kept on your tolerance you went. You went up to high now. Your body's just not passing it correctly in that sense and so we're to another formulation from me and that one had empty to L. which I didn't know So my own journey would see. Vdi recorded everything. And I've realized someone needs to. At least give me much more of a helping hand when I first started. And that's why we're so much more careful when it comes to our clients of artists that we really wanted to with the whole time but now. I know what my therapeutic doses whenever episode. I know what that is I would. Just go back to my. You know my microdosing periods after that was perfect and then would I don't need I just don't want to go that high. The frequency of dosing is very important because CBD liked THC lingers in the body and can accumulate over time with repeated dosing so it may be that low dosages of CBD might be effective when taken regularly but when acute relief is required in the moment higher. Dosages may be needed. Some people have a very profound effect after taking it initially and within the first couple days but the majority of my patients don't feel anything For weeks sometimes takes up two months for them to eventually things to start change so it's very subtle in so medicines typically have a very profound effect of It will lower your blood pressure. Your blood sugar do something you know very predictable at a predictable dose and CBD in Cannabinoid Medicine. Right now is kind of the opposite. There is no does we. Don't the the the effects that you're going to get taking? This are not predictable. So I think educating My patients in the community. That don't think of this as a medicine. You know really think it's closer to a nutritional supplement. Then I feel that it is a medicine at this point because we don't understand it we know it's modulating and changing your cabinet system but modulating and changing and in what ways rain-soaked bus yet. So a lot of this is just hit or miss in for me It being a position that's dealing with the OPIOID crisis. I don't have a lot to lose right. Sixty THOUSAND AMERICANS ARE DYING EVERY YEAR. And how we need a Hail. Mary In order for this to you know for our country to change in so for me. It felt good bringing something like this into the practice of medicine because we had nothing to lose It is positively affecting our patients. We are able to reduce their dependency on narcotics. And you know we are slowly getting there. But that's only because my organization is set up like that but for a patient who's on narcotic that just think they're gonNa buy this off the shelf and it's GonNa miraculously work very hard to make this work without having a healthcare professional or nurse that you could call or someone to help guide you through this process. You're going to be lost so clearly. People are having some sometimes profound experiences CD. But how does he did? He actually affect the body like all other cannabinoid. Cbd has not incredibly by available in the body most of the CBD that anyone ingest is simply excreted either unmet metabolize or as what's called a conjugated sugar meaning that a glucose molecule adhere to the CBD molecule as it passed through the body now some of the CD that's ingested sticks to other life affiliated or oil loving tissues in the body like fat which keeps from circulating in the body and reaching sites of action but for those molecules CBD that do make it into the bloodstream and get circulated throughout the body. An interesting series of events begins to take place first of all. It's important to know that. Cbd has a very very low affinity for either CB one or C two receptor. Which as you may remember from episode six of the podcast these are the two primary chemical receptors that make up into Connecticut System. Instead of directly affecting tabloid receptors CD tints to stimulate these receptors indirectly by affecting the production breakdown of Indo cabinets that the body produces on. Its own as mentioned before. Cbd's stimulates the production of Ananta Mine. Which is a partial agonists or stimulator of CB ONE NC two receptors much like thc additionally CD inhibits enzyme called fatty acid. A my hydro lease also known as far or F. A. H. Which would typically break down in the end mine as well as a lot of other things in the body. This allows the anatomy that the body produces to linger in the body longer the stimulating canaveral interceptors for a long time. At least theoretically you could think of this as CD nudging the Indo cabinet system to do its own thing rather than completely hijacking. The system altogether which is kind of what? Thc does that's not to say that the activity of THC is bad or undesirable. It's just very different now. Cbd also interacts with a putative cannabinoid receptor called GP are fifty five the GP are stands for g protein coupled receptor which is the type of chemical receptor. That canaveral interceptors are a little technical vocabulary now G. PR fifty five is thought to be responsible for some. Cd's anti epileptic activity among other things. In addition to these effects on into AIDS and cabinet receptors CD interacts with a lot of other chemical receptors including Vanna later sceptres like tr PV. One Trip v one which are also referred to as kept sason receptors because kept saying the chemical responsible for the spiciness and peppers. Also stimulates van alert receptors. Cbd also interacts with Serotonin receptors commonly associated with mood. Sleep and blood pressure. It also influences the activity of denizen receptors commonly associated with heart health and it also interact with p. p. a. r. Gamma receptors which are linked to insulin resistance and diabetes among other things. In addition to inhibiting enzymes that break down to mine. Cbd also has potent inhibitory effects on a group of liver enzymes called the site of Chrome P for fifty signs which are responsible for metabolising. Many common drugs this inhibitory effect is commonly referred to as the grapefruit effect because grapefruits are well known to cause the same enzyme inhibition. In fact you may have once been prescribed a medication that featured a label on the bottle that cautioned against taking with grapefruit one of the most well known drug interactions with CBD is with a blood thinning drug called warfare. Yes so as an anesthesiologist and pain position as a very heavy into interventional procedures. I'm always concerned about Kundun. To interject for just a second in case you don't know commit in. Is War friend Anna up in? We know that it's metabolism in delivered by the side of the people were the system in. That's with CBD consumers. You should be thinking about that as well And there were some studies out there to say that it could affect some bleeding times but we had not seen that clinically so our patients who were taking this were honor Kundun. Into we got laboratory tests we could not see their bleeding times change so I think theoretically it is possible but I'm not seeing clinically. What we do see clinically. Which could be worrisome. Is that when you are taking a CD product in your stimulating your system which I like to refer to as your inner physician. It's kind of nature's way of keeping balance in healing yourself is. Your Body is starting to heal end. Maybe it is competing with the site across four fifty system for certain drugs plasma levels of these anti hypertensive czar diabetic medications could theoretically be bolstered. A little in with your health becoming Improved we're finding patients needing to get off these medications So a patient Who sticking a blood pressure medicine? We don't recommend them taking her. Cbd At the same time they take their blood pressure. We make we ask them to take that two hours after that So we'RE NOT WORRIED ABOUT DIZZINESS. Or dropping one rusher in we really encourage them every patient That gets on. Cd Go to your primary care doctor. First and let them know you're taking this and have them start to monitor your blood pressure diabetics and so you can reduce these medications if you're able to Under their care for consumers to go out and try to do that on their own. I feel is is very risky. So you know that that. We haven't seen any problems in patients. But I feel like problems are just right around the corner if we as physicians aren't monitoring these patients as diligent as you need to. Cbd also has been demonstrated exacerbate the negative side effects of some epilepsy. Drugs like Valpo Acid because of these kinds of interactions. It's important that anyone taking CD with other medications do so under the supervision of a healthcare provider to stay safe one thing. That should be mentioned here. Is that so far? We've been talking about how. Cbd By itself and isolation interacts with the body when CBD is present in a complex mixture like cannabis extract with dozens or hundreds of other compounds or when it's formulated in. A food or topical product with other ingredients effects can be very different. A hint extract product should be judged by the total formulation not just the quality of the hemp extract used as a single ingredient in the product. It's also possible to manipulate the. Absorption and bioavailability of CBD using technologies like Nanno Mulsim was a process of breaking up a CD extract into the tiny tiny droplets the size of nanometer. Which is one billionth of a meter. And then these tiny droplets are surrounded by a little water friendly casing. What this does is it. Allows the oil droplets to remain suspended in an aqueous solution keeps the oil droplets from coming back together to one another. And this is how you make. What's often termed water soluble? Cbd But it's kind of a misnomer. There's really no such thing as water. Soluble CBD really. What's being made is kind of what would be referred to as a call away at something that remains suspended in solution that doesn't settle or rejoin It's not really soluble in water. But I digress. So far we've mostly been talking about how. Cd affects the body when it's ingested or inhaled. But what about the effects of CBD? On the skin there are all sorts of chemical receptors in the skin including cannabinoid receptors. Just like you have in other parts of your body in general when CD's applied to the skin or topically it only affects the area where it's applied exception is when CBD is Applied Trans Termoli usually with a patch these are similar like kept saying in patches or even nicotine patches in their specially formulated with ingredients. That will help carry things through the skin. That normally would have a hard time penetrating if can avenue. It's like CPA can soak through the outer layer of the skin the epidermis and reached the lower layer of the skin the durmus than it could end up reaching blood vessels and then getting into the blood and being distributed throughout the body. But we'll see B D actually help keep your skin healthy right now. Currently in the market. There's much there's a seavy. Beauty focused product star. Willoughby's does usually between oil or a beauty. Serra whatever it is right not necessarily like a clean base like like the treatment Roger that sense so I think a lot of times clients when they have asked me. They are association. Oil means more oil. Right right it's gonNA produce more oil right so right accusations so to break down that association to treat with oil is it takes some time for people to get used to you know if your if your skin issue. I think with fires much more intensive care we do suggest you to internally to take it as a tincture also a method to us. Well Abby. A- I find that to be romy percent the best approach as much as we advocate taking it for time and then stopped me. I did that myself. I took it for eight months straight and then I stopped taking two months to see what were wise and all that and the first thing. That was my skin by really. Oh yeah very like that was the first thing I noticed my skin wasn't as Halsey was as a internally glowing not like internally glowing As it was when I was on it that was my outside of the pain. Management course at that was my biggest motivator nowadays whenever meet people that was the first thing they say that your skin looks naturally low in honestly nothing's changed but my just the incorporation of CD my life to with you so you can see that. Cbs activity in the body is diverse and complex. We still don't understand the whole picture yet. And don't let anybody tell you otherwise yet despite our lack of knowledge about CBD evidence does seem to indicate that it's a pretty safe compound even if some regulatory agencies disagree. I've seen a lot of people. Conflate even an presentations at conferences can flay the side effect profile of pure. Cbd At high dosage to see bb in general. And that's not a fair comparison. I would save a Connecticut. Dial despite its many complex mechanisms of action is an extremely safe drug with very few adverse events the most common adverse effects associated with CBD or things like lethargy appetite disruptions and gastro intestinal distress. But everyone reacts to things differently and an uncommon cases. Some people may react unfavourably. Cbd just like they might anything else but like THC. It's incredibly difficult if not impossible to overdose or die from using CBD at extremely high dosages of fifteen milligrams per kilogram of body weight or higher. It is possible to cause liver damage with CBD but it's also very uncommon for anyone to ever take dosages that high to put this into perspective that equates to a dose of around one gram of pure cbd for someone that weighs around one hundred and forty pounds or sixty two kilograms for someone like myself that weighs closer to two hundred pounds that does have be closer to grandma and a half or fifteen hundred milligrams of CBD to put this issue into better perspective. Consider THAT MOST CD. Products readily available in the market have serving sizes feature doses of between five and fifty milligrams of CBD According to the Safety Data Sheet for EPA DIALECTS CBD is tolerated well in humans orally at dosages up to fifteen hundred milligrams per day based on the history of research that exists. It's clear that. Cbd has a lot of potential as a medicine. Research indicates it may be effective at treating things like anxiety. Depression sleep various forms of specificity pain. Bacterial Infections and inflammation. When it comes to skin treatment it might be effective in battling acne and regulating inflammation of the skin. It is true a lot more research is still needed to understand how to best unlocked therapeutic potential CD but it's clear that CD is certainly not another snake oil but like many things there's a lot of nuance around the topic. One of the big issues that needs to be understood as what dosages are needed to elicit therapeutic effects while we have a pretty good understanding of what dosages not to exceed to stay safe. We don't have a clear picture of what dosages to shoot forward to achieve targeted therapeutic effects under different conditions this is why many consumers of CBD are leaving it up to trial and error to find the dose that works best for them and then of course the other sneaky problem is at would dosages CBD actually active and which dosages are people mostly just experiencing placebo effects. This is a problem that plagues cannabis research. Broadly and we need to understand these issues. Better course another side to the puzzle is if people are experiencing placebo effects than is that necessarily a bad thing considering the safety profile of CBD. My personal opinion is Maybe it's not such a bad thing as long as you're not breaking the bank to get CD in the first place and this brings us back around to where we started in that CD products currently. You're heavily inflated in value although the CB market is rapidly devaluing and we should see the prices of a lot of CD products. Come much more in line with traditional herbal supplements in years to come. I think it's also critical to acknowledge that. Cd is not a wonder drug. It provides relief for some people facing certain conditions. But it doesn't help everyone in fact in some research. Trials CD actually exacerbated symptoms like seizures. Specificity in some people as we've discussed before on this podcast. There's no such thing as a magic bullet drug natural product or plant. That's going to provide nothing but positive benefits to all people all of the time. That's just not the way things work however clearly. Cbd HOLD SOME SERIOUS POTENTIAL. So let's briefly review. We've learned we've learned that. Cd is a common can have found hemp varieties of cannabis. But it's found in most varieties of cannabis in general varying concentrations. Cbd's not intoxicating THC is however it is psychoactive because it does affect neurons research into CBD really took off in the nineteen seventies and eighties but researchers didn't really begin to understand how CD affected the body until the early two thousands see but he doesn't interact with cannabinoid receptors very much directly but see but he does interact with cadaver interceptors indirectly by stimulating. The production. Of Mine in inhibiting the INS. I'm far or F. A. H. That would typically break into my down. Cbd Interacts with a host of other chemical receptors. In the body including miscellaneous g protein coupled receptors Fanta Lloyd receptors serotonin receptors denison receptors and gamma receptors and there are others interacts with as well. Cd inhibits enzymes in the liver that are responsible for breaking down many common drugs which can lead to elevated concentrations of those drugs in the body because of this. It's important to communicate with your healthcare provider if you're taking. Cd ALONG WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS. That may be affected. By the grapefruit effect is generally well tolerated by most people at dosages as high as one thousand five hundred milligrams per day common side effects include lethargy gastrointestinal distress and appetite changes at dosages above fifteen milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight liver. Damage could begin to take place the L. D. Fifty of CBD is thought to be somewhere about two hundred milligrams per kilogram of body weight or over twelve grams of pure cd for an average size person. Cbd's exhibited promises a medicine to treat things like epilepsy anxiety. Depression material infections pain inflammation and ACSI among other things but more research is needed to properly understand exactly what CDs effective at treating and at what doses currently the only CD pharmaceutical approved in the United States is drug called EPA dialects for the treatment of certain forms of epilepsy in children. In other countries you could also find. Tvd in the cannabis dried pharmaceuticals which features a standardized cannabis extract with equal parts CBD and THC CD's seems to be most effective at dosages above two and a half milligrams per kilogram of body weight or above around one hundred fifty milligrams for an average person. Though there is evidence that some people may find relief at much lower dosages the form of C B D can affect its efficacy and every clinician. I spoke to recommended broader full spectrum. Cbd Extracts over isolates and that it's best to start at a very very low sub clinical dose and slowly. Titrate your way up until you find your minimum effective dose so is CBD Hero. Her just hype. Well it certainly seems that for some CD is very much a welcome hero. There's no question that it's an effective treatment for some conditions for some people it can be quite safe and it could help treat a wide variety of conditions without getting people high however. I must point out that research has indicated that. Cbd tends to be much more effective in the presence of Thc so as TAC FREE CD products at the market. Keep in mind that those products might not be as effective as a product that contains at least a little bit of THC but for all of the promise of CBD. There's still a lot of unfounded hype for consumers to Wade through. It's critical that consumers pay attention to the quality of CBD products as well as the dosages many CBD products feature incredibly low concentrations a CD that are likely sub therapeutic in addition CB products can be quite expensive leaving consumers paying out fortunes for low potency sub therapeutic products and this trend is unlikely to go away anytime soon. Knew HIM HBEXTRACT products featuring other lesser known contaminates like CBGB'S CBC and CBN are already quickly gaining market buzz. And it won't be long before CD passes the hype torch onto these other tabloids. And with that. I'm your host Jason Wilson. Thanks so much for listening. Stay curious and take it easy.

That's where you can find the show notes. The complete archive of podcasts. All my books and many other great resources today is episode number. Six hundred thirty eight called. Should I use a high yield? Cd for my savings. And we'RE GONNA kick it off with a recent voice mail that I received from Anna in Washington. Dc Hi Laura this is Anna calling from Washington DC. Thanks for putting out a great show. I've been listening to your podcast for several years and your straightforward advice and information has been any good money decision. I share your work with everyone. I know WHO's my question? I keep the majority of my savings and a high yield savings account that at one time offered a one point seven percent. At why are my savings? However do the Federal Reserve lower interest rates in response to the economic impacts of the covid nineteen pandemic thank recently reduced rate. They offer to customers to one point. Five five percents and now even less at one point. Three percent eighty one. This is obviously frustrating for me as a customer. But I understand that a lot of this outside of anyone's control and these trying times however does financial institutions offering for customers. You use a CD which earns a one point five percent API this seems attractive given the additional boost. However I'm not really sure what the pros and cons are for D.'s. And to be honest I'm not exactly sure. What a C. D. is it's helpful for context. I keep my six months emergency fund savings in this of eighty account. And I'm trying to save her down payment on a house. I of course not my emergency fund should be readily available getting these for in times. But I probably won't need to touch my downpayment savings for at least another year or two or maybe more says the housing market is very expensive in the DC area does moving my money to a CD. Make sense or should I just keep it in the high yield savings account and we have to raise interest rates after dependent in hopes that my savings account rate will eventually increase again. Thanks so much for your time. I look forward to hearing your response but I thanks so much for your kind words and very thoughtful question. Anna in this podcast. I'm going to answer it by explaining what a CD or certificate of deposit is and how to use one wisely. You'll get an overview of the different types of CDs and learned the best places to find high yield CDs. If they're right for you so look I cover. What is a CD? And it's a financial product offered by many different types of financial institutions including banks credit unions investment firms and insurance companies. It's really different from a savings. Were money market deposit account because you give access to your money for a period or a term so in exchange for agreeing not to touch your money during CDs term you typically get more interest than you would with other types of deposit accounts a CD gives you a guaranteed return. That's the upside. And you get that return no matter what happens to the economy or in the financial markets and there are two ways to measure the interest that you get for a CD one as AP Y and there's a PR SO AP y stands for annual percentage yield. This is the rate that you receive if all the interests that you earn on the CD gets added back to your balance which is called compounding so in other words AP wise the rates. You get if you never withdraw interest from a CD APR which stands for annual percentage rate. That's the rate of interest that you earn without taking into account the effects of compounding in a year. So it's the rate that you get if you did withdraw every penny of interest and you didn't have any compound growth in the account and if you see a CD rate that doesn't say if it's APR A. P. Y. You should assume that it's the AP are now if you purchase a CD that comes with FDIC insurance that stands for Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. That comes from banks typically or in see you a which stands for National Credit Union Administration. Insurance that comes from credit unions. Obviously if you buy a product that gets either type of coverage you covered for up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars if the institution fails for just about any reason and that two fifty includes not only your principle but your interest in the account and some institutions that are not bank such as insurance companies will offer CDs with FDIC insurance. You don't have to go to a bank or credit union to get a CD that comes with insurance but there are some CD's out there that don't come with insurance so be sure to check the minimum amount required to open a CD is generally five hundred dollars but it could be much higher depending on the institution and the type of CD that you buy and you can put an unlimited amount of money into a CD but to be safe. What I recommend is that you always stay under the FDIC or the NC. You a limit that I spoke about the two hundred fifty thousand dollars and that limit is per account holder per institution. So if you've got more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars you might want to spread it out at different institutions. So let's talk about what the downsides are of getting a CD that you know. The upside. Is I mentioned is a guaranteed return? The downside is that your money is locked up for a specific term that might range from a few months to maybe five years. So you get to choose the term when you're purchasing the CD and when that term ends you get back you're principle plus the accumulated interest? Cd's with longer terms generally yield the highest interest rates. However if you need the money and you need to withdraw money from a CD before it expires and that expiration date is known as the maturity date in that case you typically must pay a penalty and the penalty amount is typically calculated as an amount of interest depending on the terms so for example a one year CD might charge the equivalent of three months worth of interest if you dip into it so it's crucial to be sure that you will not need to withdraw any amount of money before the maturity date when you're buying a CD. So I mentioned that there are different types of CDs. There are some with a fixed term and interest rate. That's called a traditional CD in it's the most common type but depending on where you buy cd you may see some other types as well so let me run through a few of these that you know you may or may not see at the institution that you're using one is called variable. Cd's these pay interest rate based on an index such as the treasury bill rate or the prime rate there are zero coupon. Cd's these pay interest only at the end of the term. And they don't allow the option to withdraw interest as you go so if you had a five year cd you would have to wait until the end of those five years to get any interest. There are add on CDs which allow you to make additional deposits to either a fixed or a variable rate CD. There are callable CDs. These give the bank the right to call or buyback CD after an initial period and before the end of the terms. You would get your money back. There are liquid or no penalty. Cd's these allow you to withdraw a portion of your money without paying a penalty. That's a good option. If you're not really sure if you might need the money or not of course it's GonNa come with a lower interest rate. In most cases there are bump up CDs. These gave you a fixed interest rate with the option to increase the rate one time during the term of the CD to take advantage of any rising interest rates. There are step up or step down CDs. These give you a fixed? Interest rate for a set period and then automatically increase or decrease to a predetermined rate and lastly jumbo CDs. These require a deposit of at least one hundred thousand dollars and typically offer a higher rate of interest before we go on. I want to tell you about a quick and fund. Way that you can help.

How do you find high yield? Cd's previously mentioned in general the longer a CD term. The more interest you earn so let me give you some examples from right. Now you know as of the recording of this show at bankrate dot com. You can find that first. Internet Bank of Indiana has a five-year CD paying one point seven seven percent AP Y. And Ally Bank has a one year CD that pays one point three five percent. Ap Y so going from a one year CD Up to a five year CDs going to get you a little more money if you put one hundred thousand dollars in this one year CD and you did not withdraw any interest. Along the way at the end of the year you would have a hundred and thirty five dollars extra at the end of the term. Now if you want to figure out returns on CDs with longer terms than one year it gets a little bit more more complicated in bank rate has a CD calculator. That's pretty handy. If you want to check it out just like with high yield savings accounts you can find the highest paying CDs at online banks credit unions and investment firms. They typically have lower overhead which means they get to pass the savings along to customers in the form of higher interest rates. But I will say that. Local community banks and credit unions can offer very competitive CD rates when they're trying to attract more deposits. So you really need to shop around to find the best rate now. Let's talk about something called. Cd Ladder Ring. This is a common strategy to maximize earnings by using multiple CDs. Lateran just like you know crawling up a ladder you buy CDs with different maturity dates an annual yields each one represents a rung on a CD quote Unquote Ladder. That goes from shorter terms of two longer terms. So imagine that you bought a hundred thousand dollar traditional five-year CD. Paying one point. Seven five percent now. Think about how bummed out you'd be if you put all that money into a five year CD you locked it up and in interest rates went up. They went up to two point seven five percent. So you're missing out on a whole percentage point on your money if that happened. Let's say the following year you'd be missing out on earning more interest because you locked up your money at the lower rate at one point seven five percent for five years and you can't make a withdrawal without paying a penalty lateran. You might choose to buy five CDs with that hundred thousand dollars instead of just one for instance you could buy a twenty thousand dollar one year. Cd A twenty thousand dollar two years CD. Twenty thousand dollar three years CD and so on up to a five year CD after one year when the very first CD reaches maturity you could use all or a portion of the money to purchase another five-year CD so as your shortest CD matures. You can use that money to buy a longer term. Cd that presumably has a higher interest rate so this technique of lathering protects you against missing out on higher returns if interest rates do rise. You're going to get more money and get greater flexibility at the same time as each. Cd matures you've got the option to renew it at the current rate or to use your money for something completely different so you can use a CD ladder calculator to see how you might benefit from using this strategy and in the notes for this show again there in the money girl section at and dirty tips dot com. I'll put a link to a really good. Cd ladder calculator all right now. When should you buy a CD? Now that you know a little bit more about CDs. Let's go back to Anna's question about whether she should buy one. I do not recommend putting any amount of your emergency fund in a CD. Why well it's going to cost you if you need to make a withdrawal now. Let's say you've got more cash on hand than you need if that's the case you've got plenty of money for your Emergency Fund and you've got even an excess of cash in that case buying one or more CDs may make a lot of sense. I you've gotTA set your target Emergency Fund amount in. I'm going to recommend the equivalent of three or six months worth of your living expenses. But how much you need might depend on your work and your family situation for instance. If you're the only breadwinner in a very large family you might need to save twelve months of living expenses instead of three or six months. So if Anna has more than a healthy amount of savings for her situation putting the excess in a short term CD might be a good option. She could earmark it for something specific such as a vacation or that house that she plans to buy and what happened after the CD maturity date. I recommend that. Anna make accumulating down payment a separate goal from building and maintaining her emergency fund. So if you're in a position with plenty of cash and you're ready to buy a CD. You need to compare rates too high yield savings accounts and money market deposit accounts to really understand what you're going to gain from buying a CD. In some cases you might find that the rates are very close or even lower than some savings products. In that case you know buying the CD doesn't make sense. You'RE GONNA WANNA stick to a high yield savings account so you don't sacrifice any liquidity if you're going to get the exact same return on a CD. And let's say a money market deposit account. You don't WanNa lock your money. You'd rather have it in the deposit account so that you can get to it. Twenty four seven and use it if you need it so remember. The point of having an emergency fund is to have the ability to tap it the moment that you need it and that may not be the case of the money is in a CD. Balancing risk and reward is something that savers and investors must manage. I mean it's something we're always concerned about. Especially when interest rates are at record lows like they are now CDs. Do not offer much return on your money but they do give you a guaranteed return so to sum up by a CD. Only when you have fully funded your emergency fund and you still have a large amount of cash that you WANNA keep safe. You can use one or more CDs if you can earn more interest on those CD's than you would with a savings were money market deposit account. And this could be the situation for you if you're retired or you're nearing retirement or you've got a specific goal that you want to reach after a CD matures such as buying a home starting a business or making any other large purchase and I hope that gives you some direction.

Cd Wang is what we like to call a serial side hustler. You manages rental properties. Rinse out cars through the platform. Toronto and flips book items he buys at WalMart for profit. He is basically several of our most popular episodes rolled into one. And that's not all CD is also the inventor of zip seen a DIY gadget that lets you tailor your baggy clothes in a matter of minutes. No sewing experience required for years ago. He was working as a chemical engineer an engineer with eight ridiculously baggy workshirt. He liked the shirt a lot and it fit well in the neck, but in the chest and belly section completely swallowed him up. It wasn't exactly a good look for him when he got home and rifled through his closet. It occurred to CD that his entire wardrobe could use a little tailoring, but shackled by student loan debt, a complete wardrobe makeover was out of the question and his engineering education didn't include many, classes and tailoring so CD grabbed the challenge by the collar. Literally to see if anyone else how this problem he went to do some reading on read it there, he discovered that the struggle was indeed, real baggy shirts were a borderline epidemic. He then considered what an ideal solution would look like first and foremost had to be a temporary reusable solution something that could easily be added to and removed from multiple shirts after all this was the poor man's tailoring hack. And if the look he was going for was tailored it needed to create a clean scene and be invisible. From the exterior of the shirt, it should also be flexible and move easily with the wear and assured itself one day during his evening commute. Cd was struck with visions of a c shaped hollow tube, you could place along a seam and tuck in excess shirt material this might actually work he thought so instead of heading straight home he made a beeline to Menards. The midwest answered a Home Depot and purchase enough fish tank tubing to raise some eyebrows. A true man of industry CD headed down to his parents basement and got to work he made a few prototypes. Using the fish tank too. Being a knife to create strategically placed cutouts increase flexibility and something to give the tubing a small amount of rigidity the first of the ration-. He tried involve thin planks of wood. Ouch. He eventually settled on a more comfortable woodland version. Eating a catchy name. He called it. Zip seem now that he had a product at least almost a product and a name. He turned his thoughts to marketing and with funds being tight CD decided to launch on Kickstarter with a goal of twenty five hundred dollars the first day without any advertising at all. And largely thanks to good videos and photos, he took he was two thousand dollars closer to his goal by the time. The campaign ended zip seem had received attention from the likes of gadget review and a handful of other media outlets the attention drove more than three thousand backers to his campaign leading to over fifty nine thousand dollars worth of funding. It was a smashing success. You might say it had him bursting at the seams. He turned a nice profit because getting everything started and running on Kickstarter cost him less than five hundred dollars. Of course. Now you had to deliver the product and the beginning CD intended to build each zip seen by hand. But after a week or so of continuously cutting into plastic tubing with a knife. He realized there had to be a better way, he response to some manufacturers local to his area in Chicago and found someone who would make the first batch for him for ten thousand dollars. This had the added bonus of improving production speed and freed up his time to create an online store. He knew he had a winner. But he was also concerned he couldn't even count the number of times. He'd see something new on the market and thought man I thought about that years ago. He also knew that common problems lead to come and solutions. So he decided to hire a pet and lawyer to protect sip seeing from competition this cost him another five thousand dollars over the past four years. Cd fine-tune zip seem creating two new iterations that he launched again on Kickstarter these brought in an additional forty thousand dollars and since launching he sold one hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of product the also received his long-awaited patent, creating an ingenious and inexpensive solution to a common problem has brought CD a lot of publicity, and he's focused much of his outreach efforts around his Kickstarter campaigns. This was good in some ways. But also lead to a big problem because traffic drop away off after the campaigns back. He said the drop off in traffic after Kickstarter is substantial I had no idea what I was doing. And couldn't keep them going. I definitely should have done something. To snowball the initial results his advice to you. If you on this. Is to be aware of that effect and have a plan for maintaining lamentable after the time limited attention dies down. And as for him. He'd like to continue growing zip seeing business an launched another product in the near future. And if possible you'd like to avoid using more planks of wood as prototypes. All right. Lots of good lessons here. First and foremost got a plan for that Kickstarter effect that Kickstarter effect is like an Adderall energy drink crash things are going so well, and then all of a sudden, you're like, where's my source of traffic where my buyers so it can be great while it's happening. But think it's probably even more important to create that long-term plan. Now, I take a look at the website for zip seem which overall I think is great that you have a couple of comments first of all the promise. I think is fantastic. The promise is, you know, the zip seem now, let's you tailor your baggy shirts in minutes for around the price of a Cup of coffee. That is just a wonderful benefits statement tells you what the product does it tells you about the benefit tells you how much it costs? My one concern is looking at this product. It seems like it takes a fair amount of work. So people who are into DIY stuff like that's their thing. I get it. But those of us myself included who are not good at fixing things assembling things etcetera. We're kind of you know, put off by this a little bit. And that's almost what every testimonial on the site kind of reinforces. So in read you a couple of these testimonials see what you take away from them. First one is got these in the UK. A couple of days ago. It takes a bit to get them a range, just right, but they do work. Here's the next one myself seems arrived there simple to install. Although I think it's gonna take some practice getting them. Right. And here's the third one. I received my triple pack today and instantly. I put them to good use after about five minutes of trial and error. I can happily report these things work. Well, my army uniforms have never fit me better. Okay. So good testimonials from happy customers. But when I read these testimonials, it just kind of reinforces my concern as opposed to reassuring me because when I release testimonials, you know, what I hear is it takes a bit to get them arranged there. Simple to install, but it's gonna take some practice getting them. Right. It took some trial and error like when I read five minutes of trial and error. I think five minutes of trial and error for someone else is at least twenty minutes for me. Like, at least, I know this from everything I've ever tried to put together from Ikya or anywhere else. Like, I'm just not good at it. So it may very well be that. I'm just not the target market. Like the target market has to be somebody who is into DIY stuff. And I totally understand that. But if it is in fact, actually, really easy like if it really is easy. If it really is something I could do then I wonder if there couldn't be some testimonials that essentially reinforce that fact, a testimony from someone who's like, you know, what I was a little bit nervous about this because I'm not good at putting things together, but they showed up and put it on my dining room table. And I got it to work right away. And it may not actually be that easy. Right. But if it is that there's some way to reassure that concern, I think that would help people like me who might be a little hesitant still one hundred fifty thousand dollars zip seemed sold and he received a patent so huge success there. Congratulations to CD. Can't wait to see what he comes up with next because it sounds like he's got lots of projects in the works. All the time. Listeners inspiration has good inspiration with action is better to find the show notes. For today's episode, including links to zip seem anything else. I mentioned fish tank, tubing, etc. Just come to sottile school dot com slash eight four three that's eight hundred forty three much more is coming up. Do come back tomorrow for episode eight forty four and beyond. Thanks so much. My name is Chris Gil evo-. This is silence. School. From the onward project.

Girls Talkin 'Boys: The Oklahoma Cowboys
"What is Charles and Meghan? Murray here with you from girl's talking boys. Hey y'all obviously Dallas cowboys did some great work in the NFL draft this year and they grabbed a couple players out of Oklahoma so we took the time to sit down with sooner sports reporter. Cudi in really find out more about Neville in CD. Yeah our first girl. Girls Talk and boys. I know it was great. It was great. Yeah she told us why. Cd pick the number two also. What has favorite game was in college? I was shocked. Yeah and never had some really really interesting stories to his upbringing where he came from how he has been setting records since he's been playing football so just amplifying my stanhood Neville out more honestly. It was great so without further. Ado. We'll go ahead and let you guys enjoy all right and as promised with a very special guest for you guys. Today Jessica. Kuti from sooner. Sports Television is coming on to talk all things CD. Land and Naval Gilmore. Just got. Hello Hey they travel beyond. I'm excited that you know as soon nation is pumped that the sooners are staying close to home and of course both of Played a big minutes down there in Jerry world so I think sooner fans are pumped. Yes we have to talk about that but look at introduction to you for those that may not follow you yet. If you've ever seen the viral Baker Mayfield dancing video of him doing the Mili- rock from his Oklahoma Days. Then you seen Jessica's work so you can go ahead and thank you for that because I know each and everyone of you know exactly what I'm talking about. How could you? It's so crazy how that all went down. I mean they mailed was a walk on at that time you know he was. We were at the bowl game and the way that the teams kind of traveled to certain events. You have your offense bus your defense boss that you have basically your special teams in Like basically you're specialists in walk on the other bus zone with other two buses being full staff a lot of times. Just jump on that last bus. The vacant was on that last bus at the time he was starting quarterback. And you know I'm I features Show kind of all the different Against events in in the behind the scenes type of things that happened with with the team so I was just videoing because they were visiting some some sick kids some some patients that were you know. Make a wish. Kids is videoing and next thing. You know you hear a whole team. They had this dance circle and the whole team Starting to get Baker. Mayfield out there so I just happened to have my phone out already and then I reported at an I asked him when we got back on the bus as in Haiti by poses and he said no I. I don't care at all so I posed that was in January or December late December. And it didn't really go viral until the next summer and then it was crazy it was like it blew up so quickly it. Yeah so it's still kind of crazy to me when people tweeted out that I shot that that's from my phone and it was just complete luck that I happened to have my phone out reporting. Well we thank you for that content because I have to say I think I've used it once or twice in on the twitter verse. Obviously Oklahoma is known for turning out some pretty good football players make it to the next level in the League Into cowboys were lucky enough to pick up to those guys this year CD lamb wide receiver at pick seventeen in the first round. We also snagged Neville Gallimore D. Lineman number eighty two pick in the draft by. Yes Jessica again. You're you're embedded with the team. You know these guys better than anyone. I think we can start with. Cd against because he's a first rounder. Tell us about him what what's been your experience with him. Like what kind of guy is he even a face to this dynamic named? We just can't wait to get in the door. Well I could tell you just being that from the second. He walked in the doors at Oklahoma. The second he walks in the door is on there in Dallas Teeth. Going to be loved locker room and he stepped on campus as a freshman and immediately you heard players talking about how this guy does not play like a fresh This guy is not a fresh spin the from the first very first practice. Not even before coaches could even be out there when it was just one on one like a notepad just seven on seven guys getting together just to you know get get some rugged you you heard the talk about this freshman kid begging some unbelievable plays and I think from that from that moment there from the second that he stepped on he started to gain the trust of Baker Mayfield's Baker Mayfield. Was the returning a guy at this point and this is his last year. The year that culminated going to the Rose Bowl Baker immediately trusted this guy as a freshman so it may be the wide receivers that were on that team that year Mark Andrews who is now one of the best tight ends was a all pro. Pro Bowl tight. End this year. Baltimore Marquees Brown also with Baltimore. set rookie records for Baltimore. And you know just just the lineup of a receivers that Baker Mayfield already had and then he he relies on. Cd-rom to the tune of vittal freshman of the year and CD Lamb sets big twelve freshman or Oklahoma freshman receiving records. And you're talking about the previous guy that held that record was Kenny stills. Who again is a guy in a league? Making big time plays on Sunday now meets with Houston. But you know a guy that that record had stood in Kenny stills broker guy by the name of Ryan Royle's record so it's just the caliber of wide receivers that Oklahoma had in what. Cd was able to do would come in as a freshman it GonNa make his own mark. I think was really eye opening to a lot of people. So He's the big twelve freshman offensive freshman of the year. Then he sets all the records as a as a freshman. He comes in his sophomore year. It's time for a new quarterback Kyle Murray who had been playing baseball and in He got drafted Major League baseball draft so he wasn't really actually around as much of the summer. Now now CD did get a chance to work with. Tyler was the backup behind Baker but again. Maybe not as much as you would think a quarterback in a wide receiver get going into that year. Cd Helps Baker Mayfield win. Win The heisman. Then he goes in and he helps Tyler Maury hyphen year number. Three time for new quarterback in this. What's crazy about all this is. It was even less time than the other two that he had time to build that chemistry. So here comes. Jalen hurts and he comes you know. I think he'd been in January. They really only have a spring in CD. Kind of takes matters into his own hands to help build this street. Help build this relationship with his new quarterback in Bikes Jalen Jalen and have a place to stay invites him to stay with him in Charleston Rambo at their house at their apartment. Jalen suck on her couch. The Hours and the time thanked would end behind scenes that nobody knew. I think Jalen gets a lot of robson a lot of eyeballs on him and maybe his post-game workouts but at the CD was also a guy that really put in a lot of time and put in a lot of time with Jalen to help build that chemistry in the night they'd get showed obviously on Saturdays a lot of times when Jalen was going to see over and over again that was his guy. So you're talking about three different guys quarterback exit were arguably one of the best Baker Tyler's case they were the best quarterback in college. Football Jalen hurts. Trophy runner. Up CD lamb was one of the GO-TO for each those three guys. And you hear what each of those three a m as that team guy. He's a you know all in whatever the team needs from him at the most people that have studied cd at this point of the blocking on and I think that he does outside of just catching the football and what does after he catches the football that thinks the place that he makes without the football in San stew or what's impressive Especially for Kyla Murray He. That's what he specifically made note of is that he's not a guy that you know is is going to. He doesn't necessarily have to have the ball in his hands. All the time to make a huge difference on the field and so just to kind of make note of that kind of could go on and him being a teammate. Guy. In a guy that is loved by the team is GonNa put the team. I no matter what you missed the Baylor Game in Waco this past year the biggest game of the season for Oklahoma for the big twelve. Basically period You know it was. The there was rumors that CD wasn't going to get to play up because of an injury and He all the whole week everybody was how has Oklahoma GonNa Win Without CD Land? Well he doesn't get to play Because of that injury comes out and goes down twenty eight to three at halftime or twenty two three and owns it coming back and winning winning that game in this past Right before priority. This past March. We had all those guys. Kinda sit down together and we all went around the room and ask them. What was your favorite game CD? Lamb said the Baylor game that he didn't even get to play and how excited that his team was able to come back and win that game even without him despite named upbeat out there the best player on the fields. Oh you was able to win that. And that he picked that game so I think that just speaks volumes of the type teammates. Cd IS THAT. He doesn't care just wants to win. I love that you're giving me channels thinking about like him. Enact potential look back probably came by over on his couch sincere. We're going through right. But I think the bonding thing for your for your point is really important. Because you know these guys. Everyone's going to be in that situation. This year transitional period where I know see dealt with three different quarterbacks but now the entire cowboys team has a new coaching staff the first time in Riley right at a not like Riley for several years so I look at a guy like died stories telling me what value do you think that guy like. Cb can bring those situations. It's not only a new a new scheme if you will a new coaching staff but you're also trying to learn it implemented in a really really weird time right in And that's another thing that you hear. Dennis Simmons talk about And then Kyle lowry Jalen Baker. All of them have talked about that. He's a very smart football player that he understands the game. It's not just hey lineup. Go catch football for CD. He he understands kind of the exit does he knows of it. Oh he'll be meeting rooms and they've talked about meeting could see things a lot of times when he's watching film that a lot of guys can't so. I think learning a new system in in a short amount of time is not going to be a problem for seating lamb. I think just given the track record of what he's able to do With the quarterbacks just in college I think Dak Prescott is GonNa really like CD lamb and I don't think CD's GonNa have a problem bidding. In even I mean again like I mentioned earlier enemies when he's comes in as a freshman he's not the Guy Right. He's not the number one receiver even as a sophomore. He's not the number one receiver. Marquees Brown was but he was all for being the supplemental. He's the number two guy whatever needs to be. So if Amari Cooper is the guy and CD. Lambs Number. Two number three guy. He's all for that as long as he's helped him win. Love that. So you mentioned needle again. Lots of From him in his collegiate career somebody that has adversity and overcoming it. I know also in his personal life off the field. He had some adversity to overcome namely in his youth where he had actually evacuate New Orleans because of Katrina did he ever mentioned that to you or talk about how that could have impacted the way. He approached adversarial situations on the field. A thousand percent you know. He talks a lot about that kind of shape. Big His drive in his work at thick and You know I think a lot of people say you know they work Har- but you know it's it's easy to say that because everybody works hard bright but I think if you have a driving force behind that and you know. Cd Kinda saw a you know his family and and some of the people that were posted to hit rock bottom because of that in the way that they had to pick up a move everything and he doesn't want his family to have to go through that he wants to provide for them. He wants to make a better life for them so they get drives him every single day he talks about that. I mean he there. There's more behind why he's working than just. I WANNA be a great football player and I think you know. Every player has their own story but CD is definitely one of those. That's working much bigger than just for him to be a star. Nfl football player. I mean it's it's It drives him every single day. He wants to be a year. He wants to take care of his family. He started taking care of them when Zinc College. In so I think he. He has a good head on his shoulders in that regard of knowing that it. It's bigger than him sorry. My dog is barking. Great out his name. Sammy what's up? Hey for no stranger to dock. My task is actually. He's A. He is a cocker Spaniel and never met a stranger but he thinks he's a big bad having to guard the door whenever whenever the ups guy I love it. I love it. Okay so I wanted to ask you a little bit now. His experience at at Stadium and he's already made some big plays down there out when he based Texas in the big twelve championship game and won. Mvp right what's is like day. One started potential. And what do you think he can bring to it? How his offense and tell me a little bit about those moments? I mean. Unbelievable and not even. Just sit at cowboys stadium. But in the cotton bowl too when he played Texas he's had some big moments in Dallas just period and so I think he's looking forward to continue to making those out. Wow moments down there I especially at Baylor. I just remember thinking. It was unfortunate that he didn't win the bullet the cough. I think a lot of people and obviously I would probably be a little bit biased. Being that I work for Oklahoma but I think a lot of people thought that You know he got robbed. Maybe as at Baylor game it would have been a different story. Who knows but I just think you know towards the end and especially in that game the big twelve championship game. There was just no doubt that he was the best player on the field. And just some of the things that he can do that most people can't. It's just it's just right there. You know pretty you can see it. It's right there on the field. You can see what separates them. And so I think a lot of Especially the Victory Championship. It was no doubt that he was the best player on the field. You know that's the first time I think well out of the three big little chip games at the two previous years were won by quarterbacks and so we're Baker Mayfield than Kyla Murray. So I think it. I don't think there's any doubt when I was sitting in the media room or in the upstairs in the press conference room in there is no doubt that. Cd-rom was GONNA win MVP. I think he's there's just this This cool kind of connection a between Oklahoma and Dallas. And it's a big recruiting bed for for Oklahoma. But then you talk about the river showdown that happens in. Dallas every year. And so you know I was telling you guys about just think her sooner fans. They couldn't be more excited a lot of Oklahoma people. We don't have an hell team so a lot of people around here are cowboys. Fans and Asian right. I think they were already. Cowboy stands because that's the closest team that they have an so for now to have to sooners going and then to join Gerald McCoy who's one of the all time favorite sooners ever while it's just like big. You're going to have even more more sooner fan but I think I think just kind of going back to talk about with CD. I think he'll be able to make an immediate impact just because I think he's fine doing whatever he needs to do without the ball his hand in you can see some of the blocking and one of the The wide receivers coach coached him. I asked Tim where two CD rank among some of the best blocking receivers at at and he's had multiple bullet award winners. He's had a lot of guys. Go play in the League. Said that he would probably put. Cd Up there at the top is the best law receiver that he's ever had in his coaching career. So I think looking beyond just catching the football which he's going to do an making plays which is going to do just things that he can add outside of that you know. I think that will make him an immediate impact for this team. A host of the show podcast in two thousand fifteen iceberg. It's what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me were living in his nightmare. Now so I had him back on the show to ask him what his he learned. What do all of us need to learn? How far are we from vaccine? And what does he hope for society on the other side of this crisis? What do we need to do to build something better in its aftermath unless our conversation by subscribing to guess or client show wherever you get your podcasts a magical in ancient tree branch to climb up a Spooky K Zero Island by Ghosts? Where all the answers are. Why welcome to the island of explain where we answer questions about? What's going on right now. B- go through scores and do things that we have to be. Adult discretion is advised but seriously kids of all ages are welcome. Even you grown up. Kit was toss island on spot or wherever you listen to today explained back Ha ha ha ha. Ha ha ha ha. I love that I mean you mentioned. He's had some big in Dallas and I actually got the chance to watch him for the rest of the game and it was fun and I are I read some recap reports. I think the best way I could have described him was where one writer said. The defenders were just bounced off of him. I could hit at her myself That's just one of the ways. He plays bigger than what he is and needs to work with Roy Meeting and having conversations with him. Obviously he's The quarterbacks coach over at Oklahoma so video to the secondary and he's gotta use his guys in prep guys to play against. Cd In practice. What did he have to say about how he prepared them to face a threat at the wires position like Lamm will be I mean? I think it's pretty well known across college football. The big twelve is the best offensive. Comforts right in Year in and you're out you're seeing the best offenses in the country and a weekend every single Saturday. You're C- Just an explosive offense that can put up the numbers with Watson perceiver playmakers so I think the more that CD that the stronger in the bigger that he got in by the time last year that especially this year as a junior when Roy manning came in and started talking to his guys about going up against CD lamb it. He just talked about how you know. Look what you're seeing. Every single day on a daily basis in practice is not going to be as hard as what? You're seeing on Saturday so you're going up against the very best everyday in practice. It's only GonNa make you better for what you see in a game. And so I think he saw that tremendous Progress especially with a guy like part on Motley who had a tremendous senior season. He was the number one rated cornerback in the big twelve Stats wise this past year. And both Parnell and Roy Manning will both credit be lamb for that growth in part on Motley in him being the best cornerback arguably in the big twelve last year was because of what he had to do against cd-rom every single day in practice. So yeah I mean I think one other thing that I think Roy Meeting said that. Think you also your what a lot of guys say about. Cd LAMB is that he just loves playing football. He loves it in a way that a lot of people don't and that's kind of what separates him in a lot of ways from a lot of different guys is pure love for the game. A lot of people might just do it to do it. Because they're good at it. Maybe they they love the love that CD LAMB has in game. Roy Management around at a lot of guys that love the game but he said the love the CD lamb has it's just not everybody has it. And that's a lot of times what separates him is just his love for Bill. Which again goes back to have been talking about him. Just being demanded doing whatever it takes he just loves playing a game no matter what that means for him however that means he gets to play the game he loves to play it. You know it's so funny you say that because as you continue to talk about how much he loves the bunny. He's obsessed with the game. I can't help but think of some other wide receivers that have played for the cowboys and leads me. Perfectly into my next question may leave and talking about a lot. There's some controversy around what numbers guys in a way. Yeah he's either He's talked about saying sorry. He has said that he wants to attend but Jerry seems to think that he'd make a great eighty eight. Would you trust him to give eight? It's do if he ends up wearing it. Or why do you think he came up with the number ten you know? I don't know about ten because I know two has always been something that he's used to honor his uncle as the chain and so I don't know I I think again I was at. I was with a the simmons that their house when CD's named got called and When they got to face tight. Timing him Yes he was a born in to leave New Orleans but again being a guy that's from Texas just to see his pure joy he knows all about the Dallas cowboys. If you're at Texas Kid. You're from the state of Texas. It's a dream to play for. The cowboys are America's rights just to see his pure joy. I honestly think no matter what number he gets he will he will do its due diligence. He will honor it if it's eighty eight. He's GonNa do his best doing whatever it might be. But I think he's just so happy to put on that uniform. It doesn't matter what number it is. So what was the story about the number two in his uncle so his uncle was really got him into a playing football and he was a Wide Receiver he got drafted. He played in. I'm not sure that the details but he was a pretty he. He played a lot of football. Played a big time college football and kind of got him into play football and being a receiver and working at all of those little details. The work running the routes things like that got him really into it in. His uncle. Tragically passed away. So it's kind of again another one of those behind the scenes type of things that motivate CD. And that's why he wears that to his uncle. War blame a number that had the two so whatever he wore in high school. I think had a two in it and then he had the two So there's there's something about the numbers that he's always warned somehow ties back to his uncle. So it'll be interesting to see. I think again when he came in as a freshman to was taken some of the other numbers that he was looking at so he wore nine but then he went back to two so as a fresh pretty. Were number nine but I think you know whatever is available for him. I think he'll be more than happy to rapid I would imagine just given his track record in what he's done in his fast. It might have something to do to honor who's on hold but I don't know again whatever I think. He'll take whatever number whatever number is given in. He'll love it that's awesome. Yeah while we talk a lot about CD or super excited about him. But there's another guy that we picked up from your team to that. Were very excited about Neville Gallimore in the third round. Like a mentioned before Visit Defensive. Lineman tackle fills a need. This cowboys team really really really is desperately needed for a minute. We have some some uncertainties on. Who's GONNA actually beat? The starting is in in several positions in so he really comes in in provides some much needed depth in. I Know Meghan specifically loves this guy. Yeah I just so. He's been pretty outspoken about like how excited he is and he's already rapid all the cowboys year in Sweden boys all over his profiles. And you've kind of got me excited about him. Also something desperately needed but could you tell us a little bit about him. I mean Neville so. Cd is a you guys are GonNa love how fans are GonNa love both of those guys with. Cd's a little bit more reserved a little. Bit More I guess maybe not. I wouldn't say shy but just a little bit more reserved in end Neville. Gallimore is the guy that he has the best personality he's Hilarious. He's very outgoing. That's why I cannot wait to see Neville Gallimore Journal McCoy together because Jerrell McCoy is a sooner grew and grew. I think everybody saw his post is videos about outside. And he was when when both of them are brought on but especially for Gala more inevitable guy. That's just really beginning to scratch the surface of what he can do because he he grew up in Canada wasn't necessarily a football guy. He played really every sport and actually went to Canada crap. And there's a fun story behind that. If you guys want me to get into that here at no for a while he he would candidate prep ends up. Becoming the number one recruit out of Canada also becomes the first Canadian to be named a US army high school. All American. He comes to Oklahoma completely raw. He was overweight Had never played this hand in the ground and so you don't break his first year and incomes in and then he starts playing immediately as a REDSHIRT FRESHMAN. I think from the start. It's always been his athleticism and his forty time. Everybody out of the water at the but nobody from Oklahoma. That's been around devil. That were from the start. Were surprised about that at all. He's just from the start. He's been every year you would pull the team. Who would be the most athletic sooner never will be at the top of the list His his -sition coach Calvin told me one time that if they were you know drafting on the picking team to to put together basketball team amongst the football team. Never would be one of the first one picks. It could dunk a basketball at age thirteen so I think the raw athleticism is there. It's always been there. It's just now of beginning to scratch the surface of what it can be with that As a football player and so I think again with your old McCoy Guy who obviously has done it at highest level of this one of the best in the NFL. He'll take him under his wing and help him. Continue to grow with that staff continuing to just you know. Become a very good defensive lineman as opposed to just a very athletic. You know enacting out there on the field so I think he's. You saw the Players Tribune. He's not even close to his ceiling. He played one year under Alex Branch. The new defensive coordinator I think people could see just the disruptive nece and what he could do so I think it's it's just barely beginning description. The surface for Neville Neville Gallivare. It's really cool to that. You mentioned Jeb McCoy. He'll get to learn a lot him to. But you've got a guy like Jim Tomasulo who's GonNa come in and we talk about a man who's who's shown his words I really think he'll take a guy. Like Netherland molds him as an opportunity that you just don't get very often You mentioned forty time. It's four point seven nine man like i. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA say he's a he's especially player on those numbers. But that's I forbid guy. Yeah Yeah it was what the third fastest time by defense environments in year two thousand. Yeah I yeah in in running at that at three or four and he came in again. I mentioned he. He lost thirty pounds even just at the individual junior season to Richard Junior season to this past season. But you know he had lost I think overall I would say over fifty pounds from the star and so yeah I think again figuring out really how to really play the game of football at a high level all the time because it's really again coming from candidate. He didn't have the type of opportunities of a corner and he played soccer. He played basketball and he played You try he ran. Track guilty literally did every sport and then you got noticed by a coach at candidate. Prep and so they offer him a spot. But it's it's expensive right in. This is part of the feature that I did it on his fast year with his family in another guy that his family is extremely extremely important to him and and for this. A big part is right here. Is You know. He has two brothers and he went to his his family. Said look if if you guys get. Let me somehow find a way to help me get to Canada Prep? I know that I can do big things. I know that it can get me places and so you know. His family didn't have the money at the time but his older brother. Gari found a way somehow scraped the money to get him to candidate to go to where he could. You know hold on his football skills a little bit bored and it's Canada football happen so That's what ended up ultimately getting him discovered and and getting him recruited and all these accolades being the talker Canada. And so you know. And he talked about how serious it was for his family. The conversation that were providing this opportunity. But we've got this money that we're giving you to go to this you. You'd better not mess it up. You better take care of business in you. Know he's agents have a plan B added. Just Take Your Business. They said the second grades are falling the second. You know anything that if you're not doing everything that you need to do to stay on track there were blind you out of that. We're not wasting our money. So that's he. He got his stuff together in boy you know. He really has an appreciation for where he is because of what the sacrifices that it took first family to get him there. Anna as telling you about how his family get to come down and watch him play Bunch. They got to go watch. Oklahoma played at West Virginia. I believe is reg registered year but They got to come down for the first time. this for senior night and he had all of his friends in all of his family and had a lot of friends in the stands as well and they got to be on the field for the first time. I think again it. Just kind of reminds him He has a different kind of perspective than I think. A lot of people in a lot of people do just because you know from Canada. You don't like people from where he's from They don't get these opportunities and so he wants to make the most of them. I actually love that because I know his family is actually the immigration gone. They were farmers. And I can't help but think that played a small part in this mentality of you. We stick together but when we give you an opportunity or we work for an opportunity to take it seriously and I can't help me. Did he ever talk about that part of his his family's history at all?

I already took that information and delivered it to our director of broadcasting. The cowboys central media uses. Yeah like He. I'm sure he will be leveraged for sure. Yeah I don't know if you guys have been open for your podcast but you should definitely think about naval because he could definitely provide you a phenomenal one. I love it I love it. Well the thing I think I keep on hearing. Jira is just between these two guys. Oh you DNA is a thing that is preached throughout this program and I feel like obviously there seems to be some secret sauce. Coming out of Norman. You've got guys like Baker. Carla Murray Democra- Murray Adrian Peterson appointment. You could name them. The list of people that are just different performing a higher level but they also have a free sixty approach to how they approach the game Can you talk about what about this? Program is made him so successful. But turning churning high performance athletes out into the world well I think first and foremost. It's a tradition. I mean it's not just the past three years It's not just been with Lincoln Riley. It goes back to Bob stoops and you know a very switzer. I think a cowboys fan a little bit about him. Do in Wilkinson. I mean this is a program. That's one in one four years. I mean it's the most. Winning is the winningest program. Since World War. Two in the Modern Day era. There is not a win their program. That's that's one more than Oklahoma. And so I think you come to Oklahoma with a certain expectation to win. And there's a lot of times it probably. Oh you wins by just being you. Buy just stepping out on the field. Because they're Obama because they've always done they've always fun and so the tradition and upholding. That tradition is very very important to these players. It's it is. It's bigger than just you and what you do in. What your team does you want to you. Don't WanNa be the team that. Let's downed torture. That doesn't win like these other guys. I mean if you guys ever come to Norman let me know all walk you through the facility if you see just the everywhere you look there's banners there's names of all Americans there's trophies. There's there's one wall in particular that has hanging up the jerseys of the guys in the NFL and there's a Jordan shoe a wall and just the all American heisman wall. I mean it's just it goes on and on and on so you come tonight you better be ready to Uphold that in. Nba Art of that Earth. Don't they they've got this thing where it's next man up? We too deep. They've got somebody else that can so I think being a part of that number one and then I think the way they prepare them to Every year guys come back that Have been in the pros and they talk about how not that. It was an easy transition but it was easier because it. It's almost ran the expectations. In what you guys have. What they have to do is players it. Oklahoma is is almost like a pro program in so I hear over and over again for years that once they got the NFL locker room. It was an easier transition for them. That a lot of the guys that were around the mezro piece because they were prepared because of Oklahoma diff- them while they were in that locker room. And that's everything from you know taking care of business from you. Know a weight room Strengthening conditioning the SPILLMAN. Study the Academic see everything. It's all the expectations that are there per everything that you do and I think that's why translate so well to the NFL is. It's the expectations that come with being in Oklahoma. Sooner it kind of just you you take that into the NFL and you carry it into when it becomes your job and your business Things that you learned as an Oklahoma sooner mean when this is over it sounds like we have a road trip order. You've got to get a consecutive out. Why I think it's going to fit in really nicely here down in Dallas again. I think you you can consider a place like Oklahoma a dynasty program in. I I know me personally. I think a lot of people view the cowboys in a similar light too. So I like they'll fit right in that regard but Do you have any final parting stories? Just funny little. Interactions it either of these guys you know in your in your coverage of Dammar. Any other fun facts that we should know yet. You've given us a lot but I saw more. I don't know yeah I I just. I think they're they're just they're so you just knew with both of them. Really that big things were coming. I think is the big thing I mean. There's there's a lot of players you their five star recruit or whatever but I just think that from the start with Really with never once he came in and was starting as a Richard. Freshmen in. You both talked about his big play capability in its thing with. Cd committed immediately. Heats not like a freshman so I think he just kinda new big things ahead. I'm so excited that it's right down the road and they get to be cowboys in and sooner fans are GonNa Flock to watch games. I guarantee that We I just think it's personality wise They're they're really opposite. You know I think like I mentioned but even still both very enjoyable guys berry supportive of one another. I mean I think you saw the tweets from both of them how excited they are You know never was one of the guys it's talking about. Cd about how you know. This kid game. Unday wasn't a freshman. He didn't play like a freshman and so they've played a lot of football together and you know they've they've won a lot of games together and they'll come in and I'll have the expectations to continue to win games together. A girl McCoy in on that even though they weren't he wasn't teammates. That those guys. It's that expectation that comes with being a sooner bill. Hab Expectations at the next level. That they're they expect to win and do it together and so I think it'll be. It'll be cool to see those three guys in how that kind of That oh you. Dna that Brotherhood that they talk about kind of carries on the Dallas Cowboys CD. We did this fun thing. One of the fundings again. It's probably one of those wins yet to see where the near but we had him on. What our spotlight shows in. We kind of try to have a fun game. We play had him kind of breakdown. Some gifts that he saw it it was one. Were the bear. I think caught like A. I don't know if you guys remember that gift for the bear high. The I think it was a piece of bread or something. Jiang guessing I was wrong. I don't know he cut some sort of food that somebody was throw. It added in the Syrian city wide. Receiver kind of breakdown Clip that off incidents.

Why an IRA CD probably isn't worth your money right now by Alex gaily twenty twenty has not the time to invest certificates of deposit in previous years CDs as they're called, have been a great way to keep your money safe while locking in a guaranteed return. But this year's economy has sent interest rates on CD accounts plummeting making them a much less attractive. Option for savers that logic applies to retirement investors to retirement accounts such as IRA's offer the chance to put some of your retirement savings in a CD putting some of your money in a low risk account like an IRA. CD can be a way to diversify your portfolio safety is an important factor to consider in times of economic uncertainty like during the coronavirus pandemic. And, the ensuing recession, but it comes at a relative cost and in the case of IRA. CDs that means a very low return on your investment. CD rates are currently hovering between point six, five percent and one percent depending on the financial institution someone who still has quite a bit of time until they retire probably wants to stay away from IRA. CD's says Brandon. Renfro a financial adviser and assistant professor of finance at East Texas. Baptist University because that rate of return is going to be significantly lower over the long term than what they can get from other investments. Let's look at the pros and cons of putting your retirement savings in an IRA CD. What is an IRA? CD I? It's important to know what an IRA and. We are to understand how they can function together a CD as a type of savings account with a fixed interest. Your money is locked in the account for a certain period of time an IRA is a type of retirement account that allows you to save and invest your money and comes with big tax breaks. Pro Tip. If you're set on putting your retirement in an IRA CD, consider a ladder in your investments by opening multiple CDs with different maturity dates, you can better manage your cashflow and hedge investments against fluctuating interest rates in the future, combine the two and you have an IRA CD it's basically. A CD that you can get at any bank, but it's in a tax differed IRA says Nikki done a certified financial planner and founder of shocks finance. So essentially, what happens is you can take your retirement funds and invest in a CD in your IRA. An IRA is more like a home for your investments whereas the CD can be one of many investments within an IRA if you're a conservative investor and the idea of being in the stock market freaks you out, then you may take some of this money or all of it and invest in these lower risk investments like IRA CD's it's something you can. Leverage, if you have a really low risk tolerance done says pros of an IRA, see a safe place to put your money. An IRA CD is an extremely safe place to park your money CDs are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. So Up to two, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars of your money is protected by the government. Even if your bank fails, that's not the case for other investments like stocks or bonds secondly, your CD interest rate won't fluctuate. Once you're locked in when you open a CD account, the rate you agree to is the rate you'll get you'll know exactly how much you'll earn from. CD investment from the start unless you withdraw early and that makes it easier for you to plan future retirement goals for someone who has a short term time horizon an IRA CD is a very stable way to make sure they don't lose that value says Renfro. This type of investment, Renfro, says, is more desirable if you're nearing retirement age and plan to withdraw in the near-term, another big advantage of an IRA CD is that you do not pay tax on your retirement savings as they grow depending on the type of IRA, you pay tax only before you contribute to the account or after you withdraw from it. Easy to start investing investing in an IRA CD is straightforward. There isn't a lot to consider when choosing one and it's unlikely that you'll have to make big adjustments to it throughout its term. It's a lot less time consuming than designing and managing your own investment portfolio, and it's cheaper than paying someone to manage your retirement funds for you. Management and brokerage fees can eat into your retirement savings and make it harder for you to reach your goals with an IRA CD. You won't have to pay any fees as long as you keep your money in the account until it reaches maturity. Cons of an IRA CD low return low risk equals low return if your retirement funds or mostly locked away in an IRA CD, you may not earn as much as you would from a mix of stocks, bonds and other investment options. CD rates tend to fluctuate between one and two percent during normal times but have dipped even lower during the coronavirus recession especially in a low interest rate environment. Like we're in right now, they're not going to pay you much interest done says, so you may not hit your retirement goals using this method foreign investor many years away from retirement. A better bet would be to invest in target date funds which come with more exposure but over the long term are likely to deliver the higher returns, you need to outpace inflation and build a nest egg for. More ideas on setting up a good enough investment portfolio for beginners seem next adviser contributor Aaron Lowery's guide you're locked in. Once you open an IRA CD your money is locked in that account for a predetermined amount of time. The length of time you agree to could be as short as three months or as long as ten years it's up to you, but if you try to withdraw money. From a CD, before it reaches the end of its term, you'll have to pay an early withdrawal penalty that makes any long term commitment to an IRA CD somewhat inconvenient. Especially, if interest rates rise or if you decide that, you're ready to take on more risky investments. If you WANNA take some risk to increase that expected return than an IRA CD is not a good choice for you. RENFRO says.
Dream Out-of-Body Experience
"Potato cost the music. You had the beginning in the time. He's from stone. A stunt. I found in forest on a recent walk. I went on Winton lofty walk in a nearby forest, and a high-tension finding stone that might mean something to me. Of course, you just can't go to pick pick-up stones without the permission. And I know this sounds rather weird, but even stones have brations living. So you have to respect the stoned in the plants excetera when you go walk in the forest because not all of them may want to come home with you. Say that risk of sounding rather crazy anyway. So I went on this walk in the forest, and I noticed this like dark blue stone. I left it long for one. I carry a walking we add nice walk eccentric sector, and then on the way back she noticed the same stone. So I kind of took this as a message that that stone was the one that I suppose to take with me and the music at the beginning as music that I recorded actually from that stone life forest walk that particular Sunday and also in the extra at the end, you'll be hearing the same music anyway today of like to talk about a wonderful healing dream that I had this morning. It was kind of a dream mixed with an outer put experience because I have not to experience while in the dream. So I suppose you could say it was a dream of output experience. So though, it didn't really feel like I was dreaming once come out of my dream body. But anyway, I'm not really into the house and wise of things but on more into the content of li- dreams and output experiences center. I can get from them though, the dream. I had this morning shows. How important sleep is. And how we can also enhance our own well-being even wall, we all that asleep. The dream goes like this. I was dreaming. The was relaxing in the yoga studio the taco too. I was the only one in the ruined I was lying back on the wood floor. I could feel myself relaxing in the dream, and I felt myself sink down and down and I fell asleep in the dream. Now, this point I started to feel the sensations are usually feel when I'm about to leave my body. So this is a gentle fizzing like electricity running three me. I don't get the really violent vibrations. I've only ever experienced them. Once because actually asked to lie exits after body exit saw really rather calm. I had this gentle fizzing illiteracy running through me. I was recognized that as a signal time just about to league my forty. So I got up out of the dream me. Because I was actually leaving the dream me that were still asleep in the dream, which is quite fascinating it self. My first thought was to get away from my body because the physical body tends to pull the energy body back into it. If you get too close. But then I had the thought precisely the body. I was looking at was a dream version. It wasn't actually my physical body because I was actually sleep in my bed. So then I thought it wouldn't have that affect anyway, looking at the stream booty sleeping. She felt rouser detached from it off every different from how how I feel when I'm actually inside my body with all the. Business of life going on. I felt yeah. Felt detached from it. Anyway, I decided to trip inside my dream body to see if I could find any imbalances in my system, and then I could may be addressed them. If I found something wrong. Now, I actually have no recollection of what happened on my trip inside myself. And the next thing I remember is the time sitting alongside dreaming. We applying reiki energy on my main shockers starting from the crown and then working down to my first shocker to Lee wonderful. I am you factor Ricky level too. So it was quite normal. I should actually come up with some breaking dependence out my system, and that she the stream was quite fascinating in the way that lately I've been doing a lot of work on my own personal wellbeing, and experimenting with different sounds and actually listening to them night when I sleep I feel that the plant and stone music recorded using my biofeedback device promotes wellness and helps in creating balance also been listening to various sacred so fed Joe CD's again one I sleep, and I really do feel that this has a positive effect. Act on my physical body and one lined memento state. So what I do is wanna wake up during the night. I play CD while I go back to sleep. If you could eat, my planted stone music, CDs so it plays for about sixty minutes. And I always food back to sleep within the first fifteen minutes and the rest of the CD goes on for about another forty five minutes. Now, I really wake up at the end of the music. So the music continues to have the post effect. I feel even off is actually stopped as I mentioned before. I also listen to to various meditative taught music on particularly the Saint Christopher Joe ones by Jonathan Goldman. I also love the idea that I can give myself Rakia while I sleep. Of course, this also implies that we can all promote our own well-being, even while we are asleep. So anyway, I will continue with my experiments, and I will report back on the. Fascinating dreams like this one any of the outer put experiences Tomei half. And so thank you for listening. You'll find this podcast episode as a blog post over my sight life issue dot org. Also, there's a page dedicated to my plant stone music. So if you talk to listen to that few tracks up there and thank you for being with me today. Endo see next time.

Let live it to the healthiest. Hello. And welcome to the GMC, health and wellness podcast. Brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am her host Heidi. And I am again joined by the fabulous. Sarah. Are we talking about things that can kill us? No, actually that is a good relief. If you're listening to an earlier upset, this is not about things that can kill you actually about something that could be very beneficial for you good. So that's a bit more on the positive side. There is I mean to every story there could be a slight downturn in mood. Sure. So I'm just going to be you know, again, parental information. Now trying to tell you how to live your life. But you know, she wanted to know in case you hadn't figured this out. We are not doctors you need to you. Do you? We'll let you know. Do your do your own research, ever, distrust, something you hear on gassed, very true and differently this podcast to read labels for sure. So today what we're talking about is CBD oil or Canaveral. No. I think the wrong again. How did we decide video? It looks phonetically but video I will probably say that incorrectly again later on when I try and inevitably pronounce it correctly again, but we're gonna save for my ease CBD oil. That's what's most commonly known as and this oil has really become like a very popular like a hot product really in the states, particularly well, especially in the states that have legalized medical marijuana for medical uses and for recreational use, and because of that legalization this oil has definitely jumped in popularity and has really entered more into the mainstream. Like, for instance, the other day, my mom was telling me how she's thinking of giving the cat CBD oil. Oh, really? Yep. You buy it for your. I mean, I'm sure you can. Oh, you can especially in California. Yeah. Yeah. I think she's thinking of binding like Petco, and she wants to put it in his food for his joints. And if he she thinks he might have arthritis. He's elderly. So she's thinking of putting that into his food which after reading this. I'm like, oh, it's really everywhere. Try to not talk to her. I don't know if he should just self medicate your your pets with cannabis oil. I mean, that's what I was thinking. But. And I realized that the different from the there's different there's different ways of ingesting, or you know, taking it. So you're not you're not going to necessarily be high. But still I would I would maybe talk to someone. I yeah. Yeah. I've been trying to suggest that. How's that going? Not good. But this oil it's in. I mean, it's in pet things now apparently, but it's also been popping up in like restaurants. I think I saw magazine cover where they were talking about it and had a whole article about it and in different like just in little oils that you can like drop her onto your tongue to take orally. I mean, it's all to be taken orally, which is why it's like food and things like that. Or why my mom can put it in the cat's food. Right. So it's really I think some of it has to do with the the ease of use as well and have how acceptable it is. It's really made it jump in popularity. There is a show on Netflix that I saw recently. I didn't see the show just the trailer that is about cooking with marijuana products. And. It's just it's everywhere anymore. It is it is it's really popular. And so I wanted to talk about it. Learn a little more about it. So CBD oil is a non intoxicating marijuana extract. And it's being credited with helping treat just a host of medical problems, everything from epileptic seizures to exile, eighty two inflammation to sleeplessness. And I think that's like not only is it kind of easy to get and to take this taking it orally. Also, it's being touted as having benefits. And that's another reason why it's been very popular. Because it's you know, it's more like the natural holistic way to treat different ailments. There are some experts say the evidence is scant for most of these benefits. At least the ones that everyone will say, it's helpful for anything. Like, oh, you're having an issue. Maybe she just take CB oil a lot of anecdotal evidence. Yes, I'm curious as to what the more. Official evidence might be that's the atom looking for. I mean who knows maybe I'll come back, and if you up with Donal evidence about the cat, maybe I'll just add to the pool of the cat is frolicking like a kitten doubt that, but you know, we'll see. So old man cat, so along with some of the experts saying the evidence is not very vast for this product CB is being produced at this moment without any regulation. So that can result in products. That may vary in quality. I'm very really while widely because there's not a standard for it CB is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication or marijuana's high that high is caused by THC. CBD does not have that chemical in it. So it's not it's not going to get you high. It has these other apparent health benefits. CB oil is legal in thirty eight's, thirty states where medical and or recreational marijuana is legal seventeen additional states have specific laws on the books. And there is only one reported use of CBD that is sort of been scientifically proven, and this is using cadaver. Oh, no canal dial to treat epilepsy, and that does have scientific evidence supporting him. I have heard of that. Yes. This is one other times, it's not really regulated. Or there's not a ton of evidence that scientific, but this is one particular use that definitely has scientists scientific evidence. So last month. The US food and Drug administration. Their advisory panel unanimously unanimously recommended the approval of the CD medication epi dialects, and that is to treat to rare forms of childhood epilepsy. And that's really the only area where evidence has risen to the point where the FDA has said that it's acceptable to approve a new drug and for the rest of CB's potential uses. The really isn't enough evidence to make a firm conclusion about its effectiveness. So there have been some human clinical trials that suggest CB could be effective in treating symptoms of anxiety or particularly social anxiety. And there have been clinical trials in adults. But those trails have been a lot smaller than the epilepsy. Studies. And I don't believe the studies. So the studies epilepsy or specifically for childhood epilepsy. And so the CB clinical trials for other things like anxiety. I believe those are just on a dull they were not on children. So again, if you're using CD oil may be careful of using it for kids. I would say it looks like really the main trials have that have been related to children is specifically for epilepsy. And it's this specific drug. It's not just like CBD oil straight from the bottle that you could buy it isn't Pacific medication. The FDA is approving it's not just the oil anywhere. Because again, it comes up in like food cafes or putting it in or Sarah was mentioning the net show. It is kind of everywhere in that sense. But it's different from the medications. Also, CB's usefulness as an anti inflammatory medication is the next most promising use of it. But the results have mostly come from animal studies, so not necessarily human studies that have shown this to be particularly promising. The rest of potential uses such as antipsychotic antidepressant or sleep aids. Have all been studies in animals with only one or two example studies in humans. So I don't know I feel like like we were mentioning most times when people are suggesting CB oil. It's really from anecdotal evidence. I feel actually I know a guy who had prostate cancer decided that he wasn't going to treat it conventionally with western medicine. And so he just started doing I don't know if it was CD oil, or if it was another version of hemp related product. That's the way he decided he was just going to treat this. I think it was first of oil. Didn't didn't work? But yes, I feel like. There's not enough evidence out there yet to just make your own decisions on that kind of stuff. Don't just I mean, obviously, it's up to you. Whether you're going to what kind of treatment, you're going to get for your body. But don't just be like if somebody else did this. I'm going to just make my own decision and not get an e medical advice. Right. Right. Yeah. And I think that's also not to say that you can't decide and I think it's good for me. So I'm also going to do it because it's not necessarily going to cause you major harm kill you. Right. You know? But I think the idea of replacing other drugs, maybe you wanna talk to fresh out have been more studies yet done on right, right? Other other drugs. But it is interesting that has been shown to be helpful in this one particular medication for epilepsy. I think that definitely shows this could be useful and other medications as well. But more studies are definitely needed and beyond just anecdotal. Yeah. Also, it has been reported that the studies that have featured humans for other potential CBD uses have either been case reports or studies that did not compare Zolt against a control group that did not use the oil. So if there's no control group, it's kind of hard to know if you're dealing with like, the true, effective drug or just like a placebo effect. You know, like someone just thinks they're being given a drug and then that'll be beneficial. So I would say there need to be more studies that are a little more indepth. Their also concerns about both the quality of CD oil being produced and its potential side effects because I think it's so popular right now a lot of places are making it and producing it and mass market in it, and that doesn't necessarily mean that it's been completely proven. It just means people trying to get in. I feel like on the cash flow sensually. So we're going to take a quick break. And then we'll be right back. Keep talking about CD oil. Hi fashion line.

Let's go, please. Jaylen clarify registered trademarks of Harman international industries, Inc. Still on the search of that one true love on the limbo in this crazy world of dating marriage relationships. Well, listen to the Golden State media concepts relationship podcast, your one-stop podcast for everything about relationships. Welcome back to the health and wellness podcast. We are continuing to talk about CBD oil. There's another thing I want to mention about the regulation. So because there is a lack of regulation that's kind of related to the legal like murky nature of marijuana. The FDA has not stepped into regulate products like CD, oil and states are really struggling to put regulations in place. They don't have the deep pockets of the federal government. So it's harder for the states to determine how they're going to regulate this and to put that into place, right? A twenty seventeen study who was which was led by professor of psychology at the university of Pennsylvania found that nearly seven of ten CBD products didn't contain the amount of marijuana extract promised on the label. Nearly forty three percent of the products contain too little CD while about twenty six percent contained too much and is a. Rickie drug because it's not like absorbed in your body. Really? Well, when it's taken orally less than twenty percent of the drug is absorbed orally, and if it isn't made in the right way, you may not be getting as much drug into your circulation as you think which is interesting, and because of that because you're not getting a bunch into your body when you take it orally. That that could not be very useful. If your CD oil actually has less of the oil or less of the potent compound that you think you're getting right? So it could actually just be a placebo effect, pending on the testing of your particular product. And again because there are regulations you really don't know about one in five CBD products contained the intoxicating chemical THC, which again, it's not supposed to and that's a problem because THC can increasing Zayed's, and it can actually make seizures worse. So these are the things you need to be careful about because if you're taking deal to decreasing Zayed's or decrease seizures or something like that. You could potentially be making it worse because the oil is not regulated and could contain THC. And I'm assuming that this is something that because it's not terribly. Well, regulated you won't necessarily be able to tell reading label, right? Yeah. That is a bit of the unfortunate part. I would say we're sort of still in the beginnings of this product use like, it's definitely popular in popularity. I feel like the last few years at least that I've noticed not being super hip myself. So so I think because of that there's still a lot more research to be done, and we're at the beginnings. And I think I'm sure I'd like to hope that regulation will come in to the point where you can like judge based on the label little bit better. But of course, right now, I think it's just companies trying to get in on a hipster thing. Also, there are potential interactions with other medications. Studies on CD have also raised concerns about the interactions other drugs that a patient minority taking for example, epilepsy. Studies found that there were very clear increases in the blood levels of sun, some anti epileptic drugs when people were on CD, and this could mean that people taking an anti epileptic drug alongside CD need to adjust their dosage downward to avoid possible side effects. So again, just the interaction between CD and other drugs. It could be negative. There's also some indication that CBD might harm the liver about ten percent of people taking CD in studies had increases in liver enzymes, which would indicate possible liver damage about two to three percent of individuals taking CD actually had to discontinue because their liver. Enzymes were so high. It was concerned the people running the study. So you wanna be aware? I feel like a lot of times some of the things like CD oil or feel like there was another product. I mentioned in the past. Maybe it was. I'm not sure I think that's with insulin. But there are a lot of potential interactions with your liver since that is what is filtering out toxins and just other things in your body that your body doesn't need. So if you have a sensitive liver or potential liver problems again, you probably already do this. But it's important to pay attention to some of the things that you're putting into your body, especially something like, which is unregulated. Well, and it's important. I think to not just self medicate like or just self determine if you're doing something that maybe is a little unconventional. Also, go in for regular blood work. Make sure you're checking levels to make sure to so that you're at your healthiest. And it has that is true. And I think it's really suggested that if people are interested in they should seek out a doctor who has read up on the subject and might be where potential uses I think again because it is kind of new not every doctor required to know about it. And not every doctor may so it's important to. Look into. Also, I want to mention there is a potential hold up and the distribution of CBD, and this was reported in the Atlantic, and it's related to the state's New York, Ohio, and Maine and these states have begun to wage a war on edibles contained CBD, even in states where recreational marijuana is legal such as main there is a gray area with regard to adding CBD to food products, which is interesting also because that is a really popular way for CD oil to get out to the public. So not just like, you're at home, and you're taking a few drops of CD oil onto your tongue. It is being sold in at a bowl things. Like, I mentioned cafes and that type right? So in New York the department of health announced that it had begun a crackdown on establishments. Again, restaurants coffee shops that had been using as a food additive now. They're using CD's in theory. They're using the non the one that won't get you high. But again, no regulation. So do you really? You don't really have any. Way of knowing when you order something like that. That it. It's not going to that doesn't contain TC THC. ATC just is concerning to me. I would say your chances are obviously lower than if you were taking gonna eat a pot, brownie. But right, but you get and you don't know because there's not widespread. Regulation any regulation. Really? So my trust level is low this podcast is done. Yeah. I stopped going on web to eat. Well, yeah. Yeah. That was bad for me. Does everything everything everything is killing is causing one potential thing. Cancer any symptom? Yeah. Is everything cancer on one of them? Oh, for sure and everything has already killed me. Centrally your dad's. I'm reading it. I've already died or just as I'm looking into symptoms that I may have or like things for the podcast. I'm like, oh, this is awful for you. You look good for someone who's dead. Oh, thank you. Yeah. I try fully eight. CBD oil, you know. So again related to the in food. There has been really a crackdown and this initial crackdown has included seizure of CD products and the warning of fines to come which could total up to six hundred fifty dollars beginning in July for violations. So I guess that means that establishments had already sprung up, and then we're being shut down right having their product seized, which also I feel like the states like New York, Ohio and Maine, at least in my personal opinion or states don't seem super conservative or potentially about the subject. I guess depends on where. New york. I would say, but the city is different than other places in New York. So that's true. I mean because like recreational marijuana is legal in Maine. So I don't know I guess like even because marijuana may be legal that doesn't mean CD oil is legal because you're putting it into food. Right. I feel like goes into a different category. And I wonder if that has to relate to like, maybe the feds are more concerned about people's health food because you're more trusting food or more people are likely to consume it than just right marijuana. Yeah. You could I suppose you could consume it without even realizing if you're not paying attention, you'll go in any order something. And then somebody says you realize you're an account you're gonna cafe slash coffee. Shop that's stuff with CD oil, and you say what's CD oil. That's that could be some people, you know, who just don't pay attention or don't know necessarily, what CD oil is. Yeah. Now. That's true. Well, good for all of you for listening to this. We will be informed. And again, if you're in your go higher remain, it looks like those restaurants are going to be shut down and potentially have fines so go now. Go to a neighboring state that might have it. I'm not sure. Also, according to the New York City spokesperson restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink. That is not approved a safe to eat until dial is deemed safe as a food additive. That department is ordering restaurants not to offer products containing CBD. So yeah, that's that's right out. Sorry, New York down. They're gonna wanna go to a different restaurant. If they exist around you or just different state. I feel go across the state line. You'll be fine. Just go buy some oil and put it in your food. I'm not saying that don't I did not just say that as a recommendation, I was being sarcastic tongue in cheek. Also, I guess not. I mean, you can probably buy everything online nowadays. I'm sure you. But I did not look into where you can buy CD. I haven't just found it on shelves. I mean, I guess I found that at Petco for the cat. Right. I feel like you can order anything on Amazon. Yeah. That's true. I feel like Amazon get me really boutique. Boozy oil that I can put my coffee or something. So she start your own product line boot and actually call it buji boutique Bucci. That would be hard to say Bucci boutique, that's my first album. Who knows it could it could be a hit. I could sell it in New York, and may know Hieaux not having these restaurants. And with that. As I go to plan my album, we're gonna take a quick break.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and download us on soundcloud and Google play. Welcome back to the health and wellness podcast. We are continuing to talk about CD oil. So we mentioned a New York, Ohio and Maine, which have restricted CD oil and restaurants, and other eateries that might be using it. Some of the reasons could be happening really that lies in the lack of guidelines and FDA confirmed research on CD, and although statistically significant reduction in seizure frequency has been demonstrated by patients who take dialects which is the medication getting CD that has been approved. So patients improved with this particular medication compared to a placebo group. And because of that the FDA approved the drug the FDA us this clinical indication as significant statistically significant for patients with particular syndromes, specifically Devitt syndrome, and Lennox Gastaut syndrome, and that is unconfirmed for other possible ailments. So while the FDA has approved this particular drug with CD oil in it. It's forced. Purpose and for specific like patients that doesn't mean they've approved it for everything. And because they have an approved it for everything I feel like that means states are still unsure about CD. It's kind of in this like grays own really, right? Because there hasn't been overarching FDA approved approval. And even with university based data that suggests that CD treatments can help with chronic pain or glaucoma that's not been proven by the FDA study. It's not been clearly proven. So it sounds like other university. Studies and other studies have been doing it. But it's not the federal agency. And because it's not the federal agency that can leave the goal. I dunno loopholes or areas worth unclear and to really talking about legality. I'm not trying to say that it's not helpful for these things. But more about the legality of it. Which is why states might be not allowing it in restaurants and the like. And the FDA like they're not going to just at an unproven substance to food items. So which I mean, I'm grateful for the not just going to do that. Also, other issues related to a lack of guidelines CD products, don't have any labeling standards or dosage guidelines, and in many instances, consumers aren't aware of how much they're receiving in restaurants and coffee shops that are using CD in food and beverages. Which is a big part because if you go to a bar like when I was a heavy hand of the bartenders pouring more than you think, you know, you can't control that. And you might not even be seeing them make your food or make your drink. Sure restaurants, would probably tell you how much they're putting in. I like to think, but you know, it's not regulated, you know, what's good or bad, and they don't necessarily have cell you. I mean. You don't often go to a restaurant? I mean, they'll they'll tell you. It's basically and things, but it's like they say there is a half a Cup of potato in this or specifically. And so they wouldn't have to do that with CD oil. Right. Yeah. I think like I went to a kava bar, and I believe we've mentioned on the podcast before. But I went to a kava bar, and they told me how much was in it. And I also I wouldn't have known what that meant. If they had said like how much is in my drink. Right. You're like, I don't know. What that mean? Right. Is after all is is actually much is a small dosage. Yeah, there's a wide range of knowledge or everyone understands this. And I think again that probably also relates to the FDA is not going to go out and just approved. It's popular. Which which is good. And really until there's a better way to pass along like labeling dosing information to consumers, it could be difficult for CBD edibles of any form to really thrive in the public market. So I really until the FDA is going to make clear guidelines. I don't think it's going to be super. I don't know not sketchy. Essentially until there's a real line that is drawn. And the news of CB edibles crackdown in select states might be a bit of a surprise to some cannabis enthusiasts. But also, it'll probably be a really big surprise to investors who were already invested in CBD. There are few publicly traded companies that lean heavily on CD products to drive sales and profitability. So this is really not going to be good for them. Particularly in like, New York, Ohio and Maine. The crackdown will probably make profits difficult for these companies in the future. Obviously if these restaurants and establishments are not even allowed to exist. I'm sure these companies will I'm not sure what they're going to do. But probably moved other states probably gonna come to California. Right. Find anything about my home state or Colorado, also Colorado. So we'll see how that goes. I feel like if it's too tough on certain companies, the market's not gonna grow anyway, because it's not going to be profit in it. But I think it will be a product that remains in public interest and public use probably for a while. It's definitely I don't want to say, it's a fad. But it's definitely news. Oh, yes. Trending. Yeah. For sure. And if you are thinking of using it specifically for anything medically related, you wanna talk to your doctor do your own research, again, there aren't regulations, and there aren't dosing regulation. So please be careful and do what you think is right for your body. And that brings us to the end of the show.

He'll find his way during during football all right. Let's get going with the show and as a leader. I'm going to give kate in between rounds an opportunity Virginia to clear nose and cough if you need to thank you. Do you need to get ideal. I'm sorry all right here. We go all right guys around one city as yeah. Hopefully I'm saying that right. She lives in rural Indonesia Indonesia and she described being recruited by men. She believed to be pranked. TV producers who had her carry out a prank where she rubbed baby oil in strangers faces aces ha you guys know that trick where you walk up to a stranger and you rub baby oil on their classic yes classic in an interview on Sunday cities said the CD city editor saying it correctly sees the men told her she could become a youtube star by carrying out the pranks for viral videos in fact the men are believed to be North Korean secret agents and we're recruiting Ostia to assassinate Kim Jong Nam the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Hoon she alongside Vietnamese Woman Duong Long Taihang Killed Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur airport in two thousand seventeen by smearing liquid on his face similar to the pranks CD said Jade carried out several times before four however this time the liquid was the nerve agent. VX which swiftly led to Kim's death and the arrest of both women according to CD she had no idea the substance of the poison his and she could have been killed as well but for her decision to quickly wash the substance offer hands. I I can totally see somebody falling for this low. Oh Yeah you have somebody like set up because you have these type of youtube videos all the time I mean my favorite one is the one where they do the shampoo on the guy's head over at the action. Actually it's like this big muscle bound dude and he can't stop watching it keeps getting more frothy and frothy and frothy you would see this and the way that they set up the rest of the story story. You're like Jesus this brilliant tell us what's next kate yeah so and these two women she thankfully. She rubbed it on him and killed. She quickly washed her hands. She he moved on she thought it was part of the prank. Whatever she was later charged with Kim's murder but the charges against them were abruptly dropped earlier this year before either of them gave evidence and both women were allowed to return home in her interview CD described to producers training her with the baby oil smearing prank paying her as much as one hundred dollar one hundred twenty dollars per time vastly more than she could earn in her regular job as a masseuse so you're barely scraping by? You're barely making any money these guys come to you and they're like hilarious thing. One hundred twenty bucks a time you go smeared on and they have for actually doing this to people with regular baby oil money to Kim they they have her doing it to him. Actual righteous kill but they had her doing it before that to multiple other people with just non non fucking poison. She said I was nervous about about doing the pranks at first in case someone reacted badly or hit out but I was very happy to have the work. I questioned my anyone. WanNa Watch this sort of thing but they told me Japanese audiences his love it. Have you seen the Japanese game shows do the perfect setup. It's the PERP those game shows talk about going down to rabbit hole. Oh yeah remember the viral one the other year where they had those. It's like forty eight stairs made of ice people try and go ice stairs really hurt and everybody was like I tried. When I lived in Japan really yeah get out? It was one of the ones where the ball bounces back and forth and then you have to jump over the little thing I tried out for it didn't make those things are fucking doc in difficult man and now before I was a fat piece of shit now I could definitely not do it but then I was limber used to do obstacle courses all the time I was in good tape still couldn't do it but I wouldn't you. I mean I can see this a believable. I would believe this. Is Somebody said this to me. Now I would do it like one hundred the only dollars a pop just for rubbing oil on somebody's face. That's good that is good money but now afternoon this probably wouldn't wait a minute but also did you guys think this is actually funny like not not her killing. This guy is not hard not the murder part the part where she he was smeared it on other people as a prank. Do you think this as a prank it's funny. I think if it's a harmless prank sometimes they're funny but in this part of the world I just remember in this part of the world to there's like acid attacks that happened like terrorism type of global environment. I don't think these kind of pranks are are good to pull on people normal prank. I'm fine with but I could see if something got rubbed on your face. You can legitimately would panic what what the fuck is happened. I would probably punch the person yeah I would lose. My immediately are trying wash it off. Probably also I'm just thinking now of the people who did get into smears on their face like reading this story a month unplayed and being like mother of God God just waiting by but speaking of those people they were fine but her last prank went differently she said this time she had to carry a specific target and another woman before they were just having her pick a random stranger this time she was given a specific target and another woman Hong also trying to carry out the smear so she had a this time they teamed her up with that other woman in the end long reached Kim before cd did and she did not end up touching him though both had the poison ready to use the the women's handlers have little concern for what happened to them afterwards it was like all right thanks bye and CD's said Hong ended up smearing Kim's face just before she could reach him they fled in different directions after the attack both went straight to different washrooms to clean the sticky liquid off their hands an act that would certainly save their lives. much of the Kim jong-nam. I'm story remains unresolved and the murder trials pretty much over but they wrote the decision to end the trial was never fully explained but came after Malaysia was lobbied by Vietnam nominee Indonesia so Malaysia's where it happened the other two countries where these women came from were clearly they were duped into doing this. and instead Malaysia has named four North Korean Korean men who are wanted over the assassination but they've never been found and I think Kim Jong UN's brother like who clearly called for this hit on his brother Kim Kim Jong Nam I isn't he the guy who's going to Disney all the time and spending all the money and hooking up with all the ladies and being like just ridiculous Fella. I didn't know that so I think he was jealous listed as he's like stuck in North Korea leading regime educated in London. I believe like he went to school but can you imagine being these two women who just think they're just out for a casual goof trying to go viral in Japan and next thing they know they kill a fucking dictators brother and they're on trial in Malaysia. You'd have to be like what in the fuck man you'd be so like you could go. I don't think that Malaysia takes murder lightly probably not not really they frown on even I I just well actually Malaysia steak depends on where you're at and what you're doing but yet so a pretty crazy thing that these women I don't. I don't know the whole story is just nuts but it makes you think like it's the that plot seems like a bad double. o seven fascination plot seems like a parody of I seven movie and it worked yes crazy but also to kinda surprising when they said Oh that's your target I would think he's well known enough that they would recognize recognize who that was and they'd say way way no shot I mean you'd have to I bet in America or in Malaysia. I bet you could show Kim Jong names picture to five million people before the first person knows who he is. I thought he was more well known than that I will say orange though they have you rub it on people's faces in random spots and then like all right now for this last one. WE'RE GONNA fly to Malaysia and give you a specific target like that would be like red flags start to pop interesting why all right let's move on to around to around around comes to us from our friends at military times just based off their resumes and cover letters veterans military services working against them when they apply for jobs in certain fields a new study says the study conducted by Duke University Sukhois School of business found employers believe veterans are less suited for jobs that involve social emotional skills and interacting acting with people than their non veteran counterparts employees then rated candidates on a nine point scale detailing how well they thought candidates would succeed one if they thought the applicant was is not at all likely to succeed and nine if they thought the candidate was extremely likely to succeed the study found that veterans were rated much more suitable for low feeling positions agents such as a dishwasher and prep cook then they were servers okay Duke University. This is classic Duke University Right here. I'm this isn't the Thaddeus Duke. It's a very west point attitude if I had to say I don't know that we would ever demean veterans in such a way Oh yeah good point army would do veteran applicants received a rating of six point eight six for the low feeling positions in contrast with a five point three four million rating for serving positions. Meanwhile the disparity eighty was far less significant among non veteran applicants. The study found non veteran applicants received demean rating of five seven six for low field positions in five three rating for serving positions when veterans resume did include volunteer work at humane society where they calmed animals when stressed veterans were ranked similarly to their non veteran counterparts for their social emotional emotional skills. This study is weird. What do you blame this on Kate? Just not knowing how to word things right. I think when you get out I think maybe if they're just looking at resumes here because I know my resume was a mess. When I first got out I was like using all these terms and words that didn't yeah I had to send my resume to a good buddy of mine who's kind of like a mentor and he's just just completely overhauled the whole thing and said all right? Nobody understands what any of this means so we got word it in such a way that people in the civilian world can understand and how it blamed the bumper stickers and t shirts. I think that the people who constantly wear disgruntled veterans or they have uh serve so you have to stop being pushed you you little bitch piece. I think that's what it ruins it because it's it's like the same thing that we talked about last week with the military spouse how it's one that ruins it buying enlarge like so many veterans get out of the service and they are completely normal functioning human beings but the ones that are really amplified on social. Media are the ones who that's that's their entire being is so you're saying the triggered veteran. You're saying the resume didn't matter it was that as soon as the people reading judging these resumes saul the term veteran a picture stone you for the flight folks like yes especially whenever you're dealing with somebody the ED institution of higher learning like Duke like a little more white collar of a school that has like a private school that is known for being a little bit pompous at times whenever you see see that and the basic general principle of what somebody that goes to school like that would normally think of veterans what whether it's uneducated on. They don't have the ability to go to college. They'd get out there damaged goods because of the things that they've had I think that plays a huge role in a research study like this well I think to the part where they said volunteering on tearing is what made them get a better higher score a human being relatable and seeing that they volunteered the only good job. I got after immediately after getting out was through volunteerism led me to a job at comedy central but it was through that path because I wasn't getting anywhere with my resume. I'm going to tell a story about your washer and Dryer job. No Oh my God I almost work for a ramp company national ramp. I almost wish you had for maybe two months or something. Oh my the stories I would go to all those veteran job fairs that were supposed to be and I know the intention is good but I remember going all these job fairs where there would be like a breakfast S. beforehand. The one was here in New York City. I met to Kota Myers many years ago at it and before we were allowed to roam the guy who was running. It gave a speech to to the people there who were hiring all the different companies and he was like if you don't hire a veteran today you're literally taking food out of their mouth and it made us seem like these like polar little and it was so embarrassing and so demoralizing to me by went to a bunch of those back in the day. When I was desperate I could not find a job and I think a big part of it was that my resume just fucking sucked didn't know how to where I was like hard? Worker knows excel like I just didn't know how to do a resume and that and do a seventy-second the second flex arm hang what I did in the military like the Dogo translated over. It really wasn't that translatable. I didn't come out with a specific. What what is it? They say the movie taken specific set of skills. I'm showing your so short there. I think you did well. That's I just didn't know how to translate those buzzwords and stuff but it's true. I'd imagine I just look at this study to and I it's obviously biased. Put also the people that are using you know. It's a good probably better than I can't talk right now. Duke Man Fuck you. That's all we have now. It's probably a better Jesus. Why can't I come out with this thought? You should have had higher education. Oh my God i I know what I WANNA say. They can't find the words. I don't know it just seems like these people would get at the scores even if they weren't veterans they they pick people that have the skills so my God what else on side note any veterans these problems American corporate partners when I couldn't find a job knows having trouble with my resume. ACP program American corporate partners they hooked me up with a I had just finished communications for them but I couldn't figure it out. They linked me up with journalist at the Wall Street Journal who became my mentor and we meet eight with me for coffee would go over my resume with me was so helpful and they pick whatever your major is and college or whatever you're trying to accomplish where you WANNA work. They'll we'll find you a civilian mentor or veteran mentor who knows the ropes who's really good and well well-versed in their job and they'll help you navigate it 'cause sometimes that's the biggest hurdle so check them out American in corporate partner. I think that's all you need is just a mentor. Someone who's I think preferably done it before so I think preferably would look for a veteran who has made the transition successfully into the civilian world and just meet with them and talk to them as you said that was all the difference in the world I think if you are getting out of the military you're listening to this. Just find a mentor someone that can help help you alone but we can also agree that there's a lot of veterans who are emotionally stunted like you out of the leadership principles that you learn and the four five branches of service with a civilian. You can't tell somebody to shut the fuck up. You Buddha's bitch and just do what the fuck I said that can't be near ship model and I think to a lot a lot of times like the resumes have it too. It's like it's their only identity and I think maybe seeing the volunteer work shows that okay. Maybe you're not just overkill on the military thing. There's other stuff you do to might help because you're right. There is again. I love lurking on bumble every time I come across veteran profile dude I know even when I'm saying like I I never mentioned it online. It's something when you get to know me I'll tell you about it maybe but it's every single photos them in the military their whole profiles about their time in the military and it's like hard past dude you'd McConnell now. Can you imagine like even like somebody immediate like having a show that was just all about the military cal girls that'd be wild it but that's a small part of what we do every day. We do all sorts of other shit. Do It's like yeah so you know I think being able to show that there's more to you and it is a huge in your frame of context and everything for life. It's a huge deal but you have to show that there's more to you than that and you can't let that be your whole identity in round three comes to us from our friends at US Army what the moment I love when they post something straight from a safety brief or even before you start school war and this is just absolutely perfect because there is a command that you could tell I would bet that this concern either comes from I would guess a lieutenant colonel or a sergeant major where these concerns come from because they're out of school. They're doing like a battalion level brief or something like that and they have these bullet points of things that are going wrong. The most commonly violated standards of the Phantom Warrior Standard Phantom Warriors Phantom Warrior Standard Handbook the Phantom Warrior is their unit name why unit them fake yeah. That's an interesting name. I try with your you. Have Your name be the fake Warriors Phantom of the opera's bad ass this unit at their ball. They all wear a half mask and there's boo key and there's a mystery get everyone well. There are some things going on at this unit that people are not happy about and it starts with soldiers wearing the physical fitness uniforms at unauthorized is locations contacted you feel about that as a leader. Somebody's wearing fucking. PT Gear just walking around the PX like a nasty little shit well I mean you're just making the assumption that they are not where they're supposed to be in other words they could be on their way to pt or coming from PT and they're just I don't see that's not an excuse. Okay can't be an unauthorized location no matter what if you're an unauthorized gap so high read this as soldiers wearing the physical fitness uniform at unauthorized authorize locations. I'm thinking Oh there's that Strip club that nobody's supposed to go to that's where they're wearing their damn uniform legit think it's at in their PT uniform and the p probably I'm just thinking they're probably going to or from and they were not allowed real quick though a quick Google and I'm surprised yes. I didn't remember this because I was in three court Fort Hood. One of the nicknames is the Phantom core hole so this might be at this. This might be three court Fort Hood Anyway. The next one on the list stripped rights. OCP's are stripped OCP's. So that is like the you know the one that looks like the frogman where it has the Cami has a Cami sleeves with the white shirt. That's like thinner so you can sweat through it a Lotta people wearing those around like Nazis those are only authorized and training raining or combat missions their daily use right now. No we're headed you're pumping gas or walking to the PX of the shop at so that's like hey I'm pulling own up to get gas and instead of just plop in my head gear on for the three second walk inside or while pumping gas usually just I'm GonNa fire through Bruce some of these other ones because this feels like the list. If you said one of the main reasons you're GONNA get out. It's probably a soldier sailor airman or marine probably ably says because I got in trouble for walking and talking texting under other activity on my cell phone while in uniform I got in trouble for having not using a hands free device while operating a vehicle to include a motorcycle I got in trouble for playing loud music and Pov for speeding while on post for having my hands in my pockets pockets for walking with a gallon jug for failing to render proper customs and courtesy and for having a civilian vehicle on ranges. This is just a WHO's who you of things that people hate getting. I will say though what's walking around with gallon jugs. I don't get out. I used to do that all the time gallon jug of water all day like hydrated why WII super fucking hydrate I still might be as clear what's wrong with that nothing but the one thing I will say playing loud music in a in your Pov in your personal vehicle Michael like you know better. You'RE GONNA fucking military base. You know there's crusty assault guns and officers all around you. If you're blaring your shit so loud that your humira shaking I used to ride right around my buddy jayme. Oh any of this huge vote of a cadillac that he got the whole system. He spent all his money on a system bomb and I would always slink down in the seat because yeah I knew we were about to get hit the fuck up and a couple of times your car and your jam comes on. It's yeah it's hard to listen to more than a feeling by Boston. When the second you get off base backing you're in a non populated area face Ole Kate here all these are really simple to not do so now get in trouble for speeding on post one time California roll to stop sign in a populated area of Camp Pendleton and my little two thousand hundred CRV or no it was my sorry? Pardon me was my two thousand Hyundai Sonata two cars from the same year very fancy but California wrote a stop sign and like like it's martial law on these bases immediately a car pulls in front of me. Cuts me off stops. A car pulls behind me carpools. I got I got boxed in in by three separate hierarchies happened. They all got out a knife fan of the shit out of me. I was in my car yeah. It was like they how did they come together and coordinate that in fact they all knew they were doing I think all three of them solid and they were like this little motherfucker and they all have the same idea. Wow that's crazy coordinate. It was like a shark smelling WII chops. I mean come on be honest you of definitely yelled at Marines for one or many of these every single one on no no doubt in my my mind that I've gone for doing all those get together. Phantom warriors were the two borders and we can't carry jugs of water so watch out round number four you guys. JBC SPIEZIO also interviewed him. He actually came to us from spitting chocolates ice hockey podcast here because he was an army ranger himself but he he trained the Rangers Ice Hockey team up at West Point no less he's a leadership course guy who now that he's out he takes sports teams and cease we business level people and he takes them through through military leadership and teaches in leadership that sell very motivating fellow. Let's check it out and now on zero blog thirty. We are joined by J B Spill saying that right that's perfect. I didn't know if it was spice. Though that's a spy sell Jabe we're joined by performance coach and co-founder of J. B. S. LEADERS DOT COM and author of the Book Warrior Leadership He retired from the army as a sergeant major in two thousand ten after twenty six years of military service and this is going to read this like the end of a medicine ad because there's a lot of things to read here but these are positive side effects of a life lived ten years in special operations relied. US Army Rangers Panama and Haiti he served in Afghanistan working with coalition forces a military renaissance man of sorts drill sergeants special OPS instructor UCS Instructor Instructor Head Baseball Coaches Military Academy Prep School and then he served at the hogwarts of our Military Academy West Point as general manager the Athletic Sports Complex this guy's been through ranger school cool airborne halo static land inhale the jump Master sear Pathfinder drill instructor advanced scuba diving schools and has any of that prepared you to deal with some of the wildest oldest and most ridiculous human beings on the entire planet ice hockey players. It has all prepared me for you're exactly right ice. Hockey players are a different breed. They are different breed. You gotTa love him though they work hard as all athletes connor being an athlete yourself and you know former Marine I think that everybody whether Europe stayed home parent. your schoolteacher your a bus driver. You're a first responder. You you want to be great at something. So what I try to do is impart leadership on people and my goal is to help individuals become leaders and how you know twenty six years in the military so many incredible accomplishments. How did you get tied in with the sports world? How did that come to be well? Fortunately it was because I worked at West Point two thousand five the New York Rangers came to West Point for a camp they they're picked to finish dead last they came. They came up their our coach. Riley legendary coach coach Brian Riley calls me says hey the Rangers WanNa do a team building event. I'm like what do they want to do. He's like I don't know go see the coach. I came down here to Manhattan solid coach and Tom Ready and he's like yeah we WanNa do we want to simulate doing something outdoor the military us about a like a special forces assessment course he's great. He wasn't sure what that was and so sure enough. We did this. You know battle marching shoot for Rangers hockey hockey players yeah in the middle of the night. I got all the guys together I got the cadets together and I'm like they're like way. We're going to like smoke okay professional athletes. I'm like Yup. That's what we're GONNA do so that's what we did and it went terrific and at the end Glenn say either you know called me and said hey you're pretty good at this is like pretty good at what and he's like. You're pretty good this leadership thing he's like I watch how these men look you uh-huh and so I think you should do this and that's kind of what it started and then I did it and then two thousand ten when I retired from the military I just did a full-time somboon ever since eh you just you command especially with civilians you command a certain level of respect and admiration having done all the things that you've done in your military career so it seems as so it would be a natural transition that became something that a lot of other teams did up at West Point as well a lot of other hockey teams sure they probably had six or seven teams that have just come through there and and you know West Point for you know whatever people want to say it's one of the finest institutions in the modern free world you know just recently I met up a young man who was accepted the West Point but wasn't sure he was gonna go and so so as parents called me. I went to have lunch with the kid and I'm like why don't you want to go like you hit the lottery like seriously you got in West Pointer Notre Dame. You can always go to Notre Dame right guy but you got a chance like you went up there and your visit. How'd you feel? He's like I felt like it was for me. There's your answer right right right and as you know the the military the military games aren't for everybody but the ones that are it's it just a wonderful experience. I've fortunate that you know you know. My children got to grow up there. They'll tell you to this day like wow it was a great experience. Just just being a kid at West Point Yeah so and what was it like in your career just dealing with officers in general because you you earn an officer sear pumping West Point's dyers officer senior noncommissioned officer but what was your experience with officers in the military throughout your career you know obviously I started off in the Ranger Regiment so only saw the best of the best right and and so that was great and then I was a drill instructor then went back to the Ranger Regiment then I ended up at West Point is tax yo and depart military instruction and also the first start of the prep school. Also I got to work as well too so I got the see the the cream of the crop the best of the best and I enjoyed it. I loved imparting leadership on people I loved learning from other leaders and you know there was a couple of times that you know look I got myself in. Some trouble in the officer came to my rescue right right be like say do seven K. You know so here. Here's here's the deal you know as great a a retired army officer he's. NYPD detective Billy Hart had a great illustrious career. retired Captain Ranger qualified like you know he probably kept me from out of trouble a couple of times and so you know the the United States military's as you know a so perfectly set up for success right and people are like why is the military so good because it's it's done correctly right writing also with leadership in the military too. Oh there's also it's human beings just like anybody else. There's also bad leadership sometimes and I I think one of the most valuable things I took from it was one leader in particular that I had my unit wasn't great and somebody told me a higher enlisted person within learned from that to you learn just as much from leadership you don't like as much which as you do so pay attention to what you don't like about it and learn from it and and develop your own kind of thing what kind of advice you have so you did this in the military things with West Point athletics kind of shaped the way your career went after that how do you impart you know you. Have this team like the Rangers have come up there doing doing terrible. They're they're low morale. How do you get people motivated to WANNA learn leadership and to keep motivation? That's that's it's a terrific question. Kate and I try to do things right one through motivation and tooth registration and I learned a lot from some bad leaders I had some you know yet. He had some crazy sergeants in the army. Can you do the cockroach for hours right. We've all done that I've been like I didn't learn anything from that and so you want to take the positives out of that I I say my book about how like one simple leader one battalion commander is you know can either take an organization. They should from good to great or from good to average right one commander right one person can do that because of are they a force multiplier. Are they trying to help the organization be successful or they just worried about their next promotion right which we all know that sometimes that happens and so what you have to do is you have to look at yourself and look at your skill set look. I'm a cheerleader. It works for me when I'm teaching leadership especially to executives the well. You're so bubbling up. I'm like okay. You don't have to be me right. You don't have to be a cheerleader but a lot of different ways. That's exactly right. There are a lot of different ways to be a leader if you're STOIC bestowing because if you're fake people knowing it's very right so if you go in and try to be like hey let's go you look great today Connor. No we're talking about soldiers. They have some of the best detectors in the world and they will see right writing very quickly but I mean you're talking about yourself and your personality you certainly we have the personality I can tell lends itself to this type of career. Path was the military always something you wanted to do in your life and then subsequently you obviously an elite member of our military. was that something that you went insane art. I'm going to do this or have my accident or what. What was your path? That's that's great question connor so you know there was a day that there wasn't the Internet okay so let's just go OK nineteen eighty-four at a decent high school student. I didn't know a whole lot about military. Middle Class Kid from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. My parents worked hard. I was like you know what I'm I'M GONNA pay for my own college. What see the army recruiter and like the College Front Army recruiters like great no problem and actually he was filled artillery? I remember that and he's like great for here's a college. which do you WANNA do? I have no idea this big book right and I'm like going through this book communication supply and he starts looking over my high school fitness transcripts and he's like do some push ups did some push pull up bar crosses door. He's like do some pull ups. I do some pull ups. He's like why don't you become an army ranger. I'm like great. What do they do? He goes US jump out of airplanes. Blow Shit up said cells Siamese cool all josh from language. Now you're good. I was like sign me up so then I go to I'm at Fort Benning Georgia like home of the infantry. I'm like where the Al all my complete basic and ait then I go to airborne school and then they show show up it back then it was called Rip Ranger doctrinaire yeah and I am like standing. There's like one hundred and thirty of US big guys and I'm dislike little kid and five foot probably one hundred seventy pounds and I'm like what did I get myself into. These instructors came out and they were grenade or invaders. They wouldn't Ghana Grenada says the first combat combat since Vietnam right you know and they're like we'll go or if any of you make it like Oh my God like I believe him yeah. He's like I don't care if any of you make and then it started and I said well I'm not going to quit today right and that was my mantra and that's what started the mental toughness like they can get rid of me but I'm not going to quit and you both have been military. There's days like I just gotTa Make It. The launch right at lunch. Okay just made it to dinner made another day and that was my and then son not you know people just started weeded out weeded out weeded out in like thirty three of us made it and then I ended up at Second Ranger Battalion and fortunately I read my book actually the Guy that took the photo my back on the back of my book I Hugh Roberts. He's retired sergeant major. He's actually the Ranger Regimental Sergeant Major you know he's retired now and he's my squad leader in God blesses you with the right I leader. He was the right I leader because there was some there errors you know there's some there's some crazy people in special operations in a good way and he took me under his wing and he looked out for me and he was one of those squad while leaders that is well respected Grenada invader himself and no-one mess with squad like if some some of the most dangerous rank in the military a specialist a specialist with a with a ranger tab most dangerous interest rate would come up all the bribes on the hallway like you didn't do that to his gone right because then you'd have to deal with you Roberts so you know I I thought I was just GonNa go for years. Go to college. I wanted to be a high school teacher teaching coach hockey and baseball and sudden. I got promoted two years in a sergeant voyeurs warriors in on the Staff Sergeant. Wow you know seven years in e seven right and I'm like okay maybe I can do this. Mc squared away to let rank. Were you when you when you were in Panama. What were you okay so jumped into? Panama sex jumped independent. It's funny I served with an e seven who when I first met him we ended up being really good buddies and worked really well together but I remember the first time I met him. He didn't think think too highly of me because he didn't know me yet and he said to me. I was jumping into Panama when you're shitting your pants and kindergarten sir. So why don't you shut the fuck up and we can figure figure this out so that was a welcome to this guy type moment but what was that like. Were you know fighting in Panama. Yes so you know. Obviously we have this like. Take Our C. One thirty ride so you guys have been on a C. One thirty like you know seventy jumpers jumped were rigged up from Fort Benning and and built for Comfort C. One conference we you know we were like they were like trying to stay on radar so we flew the long route to get to get the Panama next thing you know we jump up four hundred sixty five feet. AG L. I remember jumping out. I didn't even check canopy because I notice I'm like there. Were traces already gone. I'm like okay. This is for real you know and then I hit the ground and get on my get out of my shoot route and I'm trying to put my weapon in action and so I had like two seventy to eighty two laws shoved in my weapon case I'm like law no got to my car being put that together and you know got right in the battle so and then I put my ruck on and Chernoff inputs rock on my strap breaks lovely lovely. I'm like I'm public. Military contractor got the Little Jerry Rig that thing put my I put my rough on. I take like five steps to get my envy agee's ready right into Constantino are hung up like you know Sonam like I'm going to be the last one at the Assembly area which you've never wanted to be right right so I'm like all stressed out and I finally get similar. Actually I was actually the second guy so I I set up and when the rest got what a loser ah you know so but you know the Rangers were it was it was a great learning place for me and I gotta I tell you though like my first time out of the Rangers. Diy Drill instructor now's my first time in like the real army regular army they call and I didn't know worth what the Hell I was doing and fortunately actually I had guys there that were that helped me out a guy from army marksmanship unit on a guy that was you know e six in eighteen years in Levin Charlie mortar guy and they like took me under their wing because I was at the boss right and I'm like I don't even know how to do this regular army stuff but it was such a great learning tool for me and then I went back to the Ranger Regiment was between start and then ended up at West Point and I had again I do a little bit about West Point. Not really we know I had some lieutenants that were west point some captains and that sort of thing great experience in your time with the rangers and that really clicked. You knew you were getting out now. You had done over twenty years at. Did you know at that point like I'm really on to something here. This is definitely going to be my path or yes so after my first tour like I four years in the military like I said okay. I'm pretty good at this. I think I can do this. Yeah and I was getting promoted quickly. I'm like all right. I think I can do this and and then I just is kind of stayed in I never you know really that really wasn't my path and then but it worked out for me and then obviously twenty six years later and and then being able to transition it to be a professional leadership in right culture coach for businesses and people and and what I found there is how many people really need it in our star for it right in your life coach. CEO's and C. Suite executives and professional golfers professional poker players for athletes and it's like it's somebody that I can go to that not going to judge. I'm not gonNA take their job and the better what would you say was the biggest challenge that you ever faced when you were in the military well you know I think I went to see her school. Survival evasion resistance escape and I had gotten sick while I was there I ate some raw goat me and and and they they weren't GonNa let me go on the evasion last part and I was like you know they send you out. You know you're not gonNA come back it. Just you know it's just the way it's going to be like. I'm not going to get a chance to come back. Nobody recycles series now so so I was sick and it's out there at Camp Bro Fort Bragg and the doctor. TMC that night was the Delta Force doctor and he hits all already been to combat everything else and I'm like doc. I E can't send me back. I was a staff sergeant. I said they said the Rangers won't Send Me Back here. So you know shot me up with some drugs. He's like okay. You know you're not gonNA be able to eat for a while and and then sure enough on this evasion remember Rowden long but was eight or nine days and you get captured near in this compound and right and that's right really had to like dig in and be like okay. This is gone on for a while. I know what's the volunteer course but I need to suck it up. What did you tell yourself to get through it? I said let me while there was really no food so I'm like let we just make it another minute like you know sense of time something like okay. Let me make it tonight. Fall then make it today the next time and I think that you you know anytime you're doing anything difficult you know if you shorten your window you narrow your focus right and you both know sometimes combats. It's a little easier because you've narrowed your focus. You're not worried about everything else going on. You worried about this right then I have to take care of these men and women next May I have the complete subjective that's all I'm worried about so you know if your business professional or athlete and you're worried about something narrow your focus that day right streamlining and then you get off the hope train right like Oh. I hope everything's okay. I hope I get promoted. I hope you know if you're on the train. It's going to crash have some faith but you have to have have some face faith by putting in the work like you know sometimes the best person for the job doesn't get Jock Waco's but if you put in the work you do the work in the dark places like you look all the even the greatest professional athletes Jordan Larry Bird all of them like they were shooting hoops Mario Lemieux Sidney crosby ause we like they're shooting pox like when it's dark literally right so do the work in the hard places and and you know you're always fanfare for that and if you keep after it you be successful. There's so many things for people to get ahead today right right and call me obviously J. B. S. LEADERS DOT COM follow me at my instagram at JBC visa or you know take an online learning courses plenty of things you can do to help yourself right. Stay motivated. Stay fit stay focused. I just have one one more question Russian and then I just WanNa fire through some some fast questions but if you had two minutes with someone who really really needed some leadership advice two minutes what your Spiel to them to get them to where you think they can succeed further easy great question. My answer is be a force multiplier and what I mean by that is do as do whatever's is necessary that help you organization be successful if you're walking by the copier in the in the paper copies out of paper the copier right. That's not my job yeah it. Is Your job happen. You know I carpenter on the floor. Pick the garbage. Can you tell that to people here in. HQ Yeah. You know what I'll do. Whatever I can't printers empty? There's trash everywhere nice impartial of really needs to start major well but that's what you do do whatever it takes to be successful like and if you WanNa get to that highest level like do that. Don't don't ask people to do for you. You do it for them. right and you know West Point. You had classes on a be a servant leader leader means. I'm willing to help others be successful. My last question is much like affectionately. Call Them GRANDPA Jerry because we said he was sold at seven and told me he was jumping into Panama when I was pooping my diapers. Did you ever have to to use that with anybody to let them know like hey listen to what I'm telling you because I've been there and I know what I'm talking. You know that's really not my delivery style. You're right. I've been listening. I've I've been a hard hard ass when I was I was I was known to you know wake the company up at three. Am and put them on the track that guy that because you fell asleep on fire watch old companies going out doing a road march and guys out there in Kevlar and flip flops because he didn't have boots on. I actually talked to my book about how I escaped. The a a young ranger we on the US America and escaped the Young Ranger Busier off one way upside down the other and I thought about that later in a bother me for a while because has you know he probably didn't have a common and so I took the platoon frustration out on him as the between sergeant so you know I never never tried to go at anybody negativity right right. I was tough but you know any leader that demeans that sergeant that said that Ti would have been like if I may have been like Chimera Sergeant I laugh about it now because it's a phony sentiment but back then that only got me more angry yeah right and ultimately we came to an agreement became as I said you know good bodies. Why at the time I didn't like the here and it's and it's sometimes it's what people think? This is like a right of passage as we do that in the military like you have a guy that goes through selection to be ranger platoon now he's in and the sergeants are like f n g the Cherry. Whatever I you know I'm like here past election right right like I need his gun in a fight because his gun save me and I can go home see my kids right right right so awesome awesome like like Amata rite of passage guy? That's ridiculous yeah. I think it's it's it's it's barbaric. It's archaic and old school. Yeah sure a young person's not going to say this is the room I wanNA sleep in or something like that but you know there are standards for that but however you know the sooner you implement a young person into your into your group where that's an office building. Whatever like I know some of these people like they get these interns and in the summer they treat these interns like like I'm GonNa just abuse the interns and the one that could take the most abuse? I'm going to hire them like yeah. Well then the most talented one probably weeded out sure so. What are you trying to hire hire talent like you know this is not as you both know in the military has a selection process that's because they can just get more people right right right so that's why they have? Hell weaker this other stuff you know when I was running osas A. I R. Arnott's Yes. The first thing I did was I took that stupid ballet and like the sergeants almost had a revolt there like first sergeant. Even the officers here like what are you doing and the colonel walked up to me was a West Point Grad and I said Sir like people smarter than us has selected these men and women that come to us yes. Why are we slept in them right? It's a good point and he's like yeah you're right. I'm Mike they're either going to make the course or they're not going to make the course but like somebody had to sign off on these packets right their leader and he's like you're exactly right. I get rid of the bell and then people started understanding. Okay I get it right so there you go yeah I think for sure times being demeaning and yelling especially in the Marine Corps it gets mistaken for leadership when that's not leadership sometimes it's warranted a lot of good lessons and you can find that in his book warrior leadership you can go to his website. MM Say J. B. S. LEADERS DOT COM. Is there anything else what's next for you. What's the big thing coming up while I'm still working with great businesses continued doing that going to do a little bit of an online learning module coming out here shortly so that's going to be great so people can actually see me live and be interactive and I'll teach them some mental toughness and and I just Wanna I say thank you both for your servers?

It's the best month of the year best weather football got my birthday in two weeks. It's actually a kind of a big one thirty five holy Shit I know goodness and also Chaffetz the story about before about the goofing in the shower or the guy was spraying the shampoo on the guy and he couldn't figure out why his head kept getting shampooed. We do that in college in the Locker Room. Guy Be walking out of the shower like all done like throw soap Adam. It was great always loved. That got a laugh so I got Brown's. I'm just I'm Q- lingering. I'm not well I need to I need to hydrate more. I think that's the thing that's it. What would you attribute getting sick to go on I don't know because I was telling you guys I quit smoking. I wake up back on my drinking. I've been trying to be healthier and better all around now. I get sick so I'm going to start doing both again delegate. This in your body just rejected by save round is last week. We talked about having to establish new types of leadership in the way to go about combating suicide because the new survey came out that this is the highest year on record of military suicides. There is an air force chief Master Sergeant Urgent of the Air Force. His name is cliff. Oh right he had some talk on on suicide and I think he absolutely fucking nailed it so we're going to end the show with a clip of him talking about how we need to combat suicides in the military here's a chief master sergeant of the Air Force so once when we when we decided to do his paws very pretty quickly maybe a day or two afterwards a facebook page popped up and this this page is called Air Force wingman outreach anybody buddy familiar so it's probably two weeks ago last I checked thirty thousand airmen have become a part of this community and they are giving veneer testimonials and telling their stories about this topic this mostly about about suicides why and there's some concerns about our mental health system and people have reached out and the system our own air force mental health system as well as military one source has not been responsive or has not Mitt there needs some actually pretty appalling stories. There's been some concerns over the stigma that still exist around suicide some of it from the Air Force in fear of losing a clearance or being being denied if the Knicks or DNA if you're a defender and in some of it from the social stigma that exists not what the air force thanks but what my teammates might think if I have to take a knee if unable to go but frankly if you've been paying attention into airmen are saying they're mostly talking about us. You're talking about leadership and leadership being toxic and leadership leadership not being able to connect and leadership not carrying or being concerned so this is a real opportunity for us to to listen to not necessarily be judgmental judge mental about how they feel but really listen and see how we can best meet the needs of some of our airmen that are and this is all about grit and resilience in some of those things I mean we have some that are struggling and suffering with some real real. We'll tough issues depression anxiety and some of the other ills in in life so I think we have a real opportunity here to listen and be responsive right now and in the future figure out how we can prevent ammon from getting to the point you know you hear General Goldfine talk about it all the time they leave basic training very hopeful and in pretty quickly hopeless and really that's that's us. That's on us to to figure out what things we should be doing better. I have an opportunity to interact with it quite a few of our airman who thought about taking their own lives and they didn't and I can tell you can count on my pinky the number of airmen who said the reason I it didn't work some program or some process or some video or some training every single one of them said it was because of this person the supervisor disc mander this teammate this person that I connected with that show some interest in me and my well being and and that was why I made a decision that I made so we have to do this together leadership myself Jaren Goldfine all Lavar madge com and senior level officials. We have to make sure that we clear out as much as the chaff as we can to allow airman to space to to be able to do their jobs and and have a little downtown and be resilient but the folks who are out there on the front lines leading people don't wake up up every morning thinking about us up here at this table they think about the folks that they have to go in and work with every single day I land supervisors teammates and that's where I think we'll make make the greatest difference ice hockey puck is it isn't isn't it is as you say that's all right sake podcast okay. I'm sorry sorry Dean's pardon me boys who are right also not to be confused with our floor hockey podcast. You're so cool said ice specify pacify kind of hockey okay all right here we go ready. Yes all right and like we said said if you wanted to check out more on that dude go check out our ice hockey podcasts okay. They're making fun of me because I said ice hockey podcasts and there are a lot of you the variations of hockey podcasts out there. We want to be specific. The Ice Hockey One's been checklist. Glad Kate said it because I always said is hockey to ice hockey's completely honest because I like spitting Chiklis dude or fucking hilarious shit without even knowing anything about

BTS #16 Wendy Nguyen on Surviving Abuse and Foster Care, Discovering CBD, Opening a CBD Shop in NYC
"Josh My name is Wendy. No-win of the cone of artists a premier CBC shop in Moscow it consecrated fashion in the fashion industry with the Lhasa. Ten years with the fashioned Walk Hall when he's Look. You're listening to the curious about canvas. Podcasts everybody this is Jason Wilson with curious about Canvas podcast. Thanks so much for tuning in once again today so today. I'm really delighted to be chatting with a new friend of mine that owns a CD shop in New York City called Artemis. I'm with Wendy. Thanks so much for coming on the podcast and talking to me. It's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah totally I'm very very excited to talk to you about your experience. I'm always excited to talk to people that are in other areas of the country that are working with cannabis and to hear about that experience. But also you have a very fascinating and I think important story message that I look forward to Helping US share with our listeners. That as we get into it. It's something I'm very passionate about about a lot of the work that you do. That goes well beyond cannabis So this is an interview. I'm just very very very excited to have so and so so to start us off Some of the folks. That might already be familiar with you. It would probably be if not from Artemis it would be from a website that you have called. Wendy's look book so just to start this out in case anybody listening or watching Isn't familiar with you Can you just explain a little bit about? Wendy's look book and then we'll get into talking about How you came across. Cbd Artemisinin and all that so about ten years ago After after graduating from college I started working in a bank and I honestly loved my customer but I just didn't find necessarily my job to be rewarding in that sense more sales order And then I quit and wanted to do some creative so I took meadow making class a juryman in class in acting class. Everything One per side and I fell in love with acting the most because I thought it was just free therapy I go in there and play different characters and really get into the zone with him. The most troubled characters because I just thought more with just resonated with me the most In at the time I was dating a guy who was the into filmmaking and photography and everything and he suggested that he would just recording me when I was doing. What are your personal stuff. I just posted on Youtube like okay while I wanted to. Add Value Post you to add always loved fashion all my life and I thought you know. Hey let me figure out a way to mixed Ashmore approachable. So the concept of what is it was born out of that where we would film little segments tutorials that would really focus on. Just waste for you too. We use we wear things that are in your closet already so that was the what is what and at the time there was no fashioned videos. Very small amounts fashion because locust extra videos on a youtube and I think I was the second channel that launched with just the accession channel and videos in we decided back then. I was also the big. Just go and it's very very cold later in the year and I love love scarves so decided to film video. Call Twenty five ways where scarf and and that was filmed in the Brady Bunch Sour. With twenty five of me on the screen. Yeah chatter in and just you know share as well as far and that video went viral and that launched my youtube career success and from there. I got from agency and I started Generating content on the blog is what this is before instagram. And all of that And that was true for birth of that fashion journey for you. The instagram launches on Instagram. To you pinch was nothing else to So I've been doing that for basically ten years. Now yes GONNA say. What year was that that you posted that scarf video? Do you remember rush? I think it was me be in two thousand and ten which might be better but you know that this travel to me. It has been everywhere in the world. I remember for me to give a little bit about my own kind of mental processing and psyche. Every time there's good news I was thinking spam or like. There's something wrongly right so when that feeding. What firewall my my inbox blue? I and I thought you to was Dan. You know and then that was like a more falling for that reason but it went from five hundred to hundred thousand things in tonight you know and I think now while he has like forty million views of that video so this video is still used to this day with when it comes to basic hearings warm weather. I'm sorry cold weather styling and everything too so it's still going on its own. That's crazy. How fast that can that can happen? I just started the Curious about cannabis youtube channel. Not Too long ago and I've been trying to wade through the The complexities of trying to be seen on YouTube. It's it's so different than it was like ten years ago or so it just as far as it sounds like you got in a mad like the perfect time. 'cause I remember Long time ago playing around with Youtube and not really understanding how you could really do much with it at the time and you know now Mike. Wow what wasted time? Because it's that was that was like a prime time you know. Yeah before instagram. And and all of that. Now I'm having to learn all of these tricks you know in order to Kind of catch people's eye be seen. There's all sorts of things you have to do with the thumbnails. All is definitely. It's we take into consideration but you remember too. When Youtube was four. That can be back after reality. Television right and right right and Was the first time you saw some speak directly into the camera so it broke the you know the wall and everything yeah or Mutsu to kind of go back and write that way is perfect training for people to really connect with people online. Outside of their traditional television shows that they've been watching for so long so right I I was very blessings all the time in very lucky to get on that right when it started you know and `but when we were starting youtube in also blogging like it was purely out of passion of it. Was you know a hobby because no one paid us? You know. We couldn't right right right back then so we had our savings. I had my savings from the Any job everything that caribe over But it was really done because we really loved it. And you know I was talking to call in Who IS MY CO PARTNER CO owner of artists? While you're starting. Cbd feels like starting Youtube for the first time again. The bill just passed. We literally built out right after it passed so if thirty was happening again. I'm very comfortable at the beginning of something that hasn't been explored riding the wave like yes at that. It's been a journey. Yeah yeah totally. Well the SEGUES really well into my next question getting into the CD thing When did you first learn about CBD and what kind of what was it about? `Bout that that kind of caught your caught your eye. So you know every night when I would edit all of my contents or my fashion a channels platforms. I would have something playing the back out and usually he should not she documentaries You know just very entertaining Boston educational and the time. Maybe it was about two years ago. I upon insurance on a whole bunch of vice episodes it Yeah back then. Severe Ole just lessons about cannabis and the journey about cannabis and all these people who can candidates for their own health benefits there That's and while I was watching it just for some reason connected with me because I've been on pharmaceutical medication for the last twenty years I have held expensive. And they don't really know what it is. They think it's awesome but it mimics actors at ti so every time. We have these episode interesting. Yeah immediate. Honestly it's I'm still trying to figure out to this day. I've seen a bladder specialists a public floor. They are pissed of every medical doctor. There is out there. They can't really find anything. But the the symptoms mimic. Ut is so what they do is just put me on antibiotics so for the last twenty years and you sheets every day so that we can actually help us. You know it does so clearly. It's a you know a serial issue you know so the antibodies. What they don't understand is why am I getting so many of these so I I would say you know twice a month so about twenty four episodes a year but that every time a diplomat antibiotics as you know over time? I would go tolerance so. There's a point in time where else every day because I kept tolerance to every other ones. They're giving right to the point where they gave me stuff therapeutic doses so DB swath of antibiotics that I would take the everyday for a year at the time. If it sound gray up this was maybe six years ago about and then I realized because I was doing that I built even more tolerance everything when I had my bad episodes so it's worse worse worse and I remember going to see physical therapist and he was like you know you should see a problem to the floor their case if they connect the dots for you and I was in. You know the pelvic floor therapist's office and I was filling out the pre questionnaire and everything in ninety percent of the question was about a trauma that happened more than anything. It was a sexual trauma happened. I was thinking why am I here? Why am I feeling all these questions about my past? I thought it was here to get my floor experiment and I write with my own experiences that you know. Hav explore damage or issue was mostly Connected to a trauma of anything whether you fall in public Broken or sexual So all that really Broader picture of what I was going through wasn't the UT are that we're talking is selling large So seeing these vice up suits I thought maybe I can supplement what I'm going to and using cannabis or cvt over efforts timeless but always in the back of my head. I never actively sought out and We were actually in Amsterdam for a job for my fashion side and I thought when actor jam. It's it's kind of capital candidate right. The telling call on his acute Cannabis cafe. You're right I said maybe I can find something there He took me to a few cafes. I was so confused Jason. I didn't I need Elissa things Like no one taught me near that. Oh Gosh than I understand is. Smoking was better. They were not able to do is edible. I just I felt so confused in loss more than anything else but that really ignited my interest in to just the joy exploring what could help me so we came back wall. I went to a few ham stores. cannabis law wreck. Legal Hewitt Newark. If you come stores seem issue there's a lot of flos where extant understand anything And then I went to California San Francisco to and I just felt so confused and I think my frustration with the traditional pharmaceutical route. Transfer into this cannabis exploration where I was and I didn't know what to do and I started doing my own investigations. I read as many books. Possible Amateur Book Too as well of Everything. I listen to everything I watch all the news possible and I was hoping that could curate. My own experiences in understand what the you know value of. Cd Wasn't what what is out there. And I teach them all that led shoot the birth of artists. Wow and and winded artists officially opens doors. You know we had a soft launch In April and then we closed for a week to examine kind of the flow of the store so we had our official launch in May of last year so it okay. You know basically a few months now yeah. Yeah so you'll be coming up on a anniversary here and several months exciting artist we were. I think the four CD store to open in Manhattan like like A. Wow Yeah not like in a in another shop that really dedicating her you shop And we looked at every other store. Human Artists is curated the subsections of Artemis really walks us through your own journey if you watch the CD so if you ever New York and you come into store the First Section that you land is curated by Elvis or by issuing Servino relief that you need and then there's a huge education or next to it and then there's another wall that curates by categories by form so all the edibles one category Gotcha inhalation everything. And then it curated by experienced since by Tan transition. But that's our third so we can me or my own frustration as I was going through stores not knowing what to look for arrive in that we feel that other clients. I go to the issue so a lot of times people come in and they treat the story as their own menu systems that they'll go. I have this and I want this and I need this and then we will go okay actor. Yeah intuitive hone in on the options that are probably best suited for for you. That's that's really fascinating and have you gotten any and this. I'm asking this because of experiences that I've had with some CD. Companies out here on the West Coast. Have you had any flack From any regulators in New York about the CD shop or like discussions about ailments. And that sort of thing you know. We haven't had any so far. We're actually right next to the police station in. Actually they come by a wow. That's great news come by often. They don't know much about judy either. So I think for us and they're really looking for he relief for their appearance with anything else. Yeah we had lots of officers. Commend will talk to them about everything But we hadn't had honestly much issues about that we do have a you know an FDA little snippet the store to Right but for us. It's much more about. Just walk us through your own journey in your own experience as finding the best solutions for and that may not be with us it might be a dispensary it you need more than the for whatever symptoms that you're trying to leave so in the store to were actually the Oley. Cbc Shop in Manhattan. That has a chief medical advisor which is Doctor Chin off very closely with turrets mixture. That we can't provide the relief or the recommendations that the needs that we cannot she refer them to her and then we also worked very closely with et which is a dispensary in Manhattan. That's also women on So we try hard to walk me through your whole journey with. They're going to more. Teach the rich patricians because you know that can be very frustrating when you go to dispenser. You don't know what you want so having altis chat points for you can give you the best experience and also I think for you to curate your own experience right even monitor all rant mostly yeah. It's a lot of times when clients needs a little bit more teach c. four whatever disability need though. Call US first to see what they should take in then we'll work with dispensary and then we'll work together to give them the balance. Because you went out needle went to wire you might meet whatever. Just say like a fifteenth right right and it right citizen have that than how you mix your own solution that to join. Yeah it's it's really current for the client site. That's that's exactly what I was thinking is It seems like in general your whole setup based on your experiences this all about empowering the customer to be able to be in charge of their own path towards trying to deal with whatever. They're dealing with an to rewind a little bit so win you. So you're watching vice. You learned about cannabis and and how it was helping people with different things What was the first CD product that you tried? That's a great question. It was new leaf newly at and what was the forum was it. A tincture is a teen. Sure I didn't know it at the time now. Much better. At just no way you know the carry oils and with my body. Yeah I also have the stomach so archie. Empty Oil does not do well for me Yeah it's just you know it's not good for my something that sounds so. I was very fortunate that when I did start. A newly it was hempseed oil. Carry Oil so it didn't interact with my stomach issues Given my own personal experience whenever there someone who comes to shop check any allergies that they have do they have. Ibs issues because if they do that will curate. The carry oil to them too as well. Which is kind of how I did mine so the first part I tried was newly the it was on a fifteen milk bottle at summer. Jide at twenty five milligrams so new leads. Dropper is not measured by Straw is measured by by a drop each draw. Yeah Robert Newly is two point five. Milligrams Anto Yeah I remember. I read all the books I said Mike Reduce and so I started with five milligrams for critics. I didn't watch when I was two new leaf. I had an episode a really really bad up and I soak working so I just took sixty. I said yeah which was not a good idea. It worked wonders. Shifty was incredible for me. It really helped with my pain outside a patch onto us well so kicking fifty milligrams twice a day as documents. Everything and then I realized that after three or four days it stopped working like a perfect then it stopped working back to Dr Unilat- and I said what's happening like gray and now it's not working and she said potentially you might have kept on your tolerance you went. You went up to high now. Your body's just not positive In that sense and so two another formulation from me and that one had empty well which I didn't know on my summary so my own journey would see. I've recorded everything and I've realized someone needs to at least give me much more of a helping hand when I first started. And that's why we're so much more careful when it comes to our clients artists that we really wanted to show that will with the whole time but now I know what my therapeutic doses whenever I have an episode. I know what that is and I I would just go back to my microdosing periods. After that. 'cause there was perfect and then I don't need it. I don't WanNa go that high right. Yeah and with the mcat. Oil issues does that cause like nausea and vomiting or is it just more distant narrative Bowel kind of thing. It's more like it feels like my stomach's squeezed in A little bit interesting. I tried everything I tried doing it after food Doing a full stomach tribe upbringing a little bit of honey peanut butter to soften it a little bit too You know I think all of our lives. We're very busy right so for you say I gotta eat. I put my butter. It probably put my peanut butter in and then took my CV. Oh you're not GonNa do it you just not. GonNa do it so right for US unit for me. I said it's better by just. Do something done helping him. Issues versus aggravated. And when I really honed in my curls but for a lot of times with my stomach issues I start taking. Cd on a full stomach all tickets before. Eat to help in any issues. Have he was gonNA eat said well? It wastes from the in that sense. And what other carrier oils have. You tried like sunflower oil alcoholism oil but stays a little bit for me. Yeah you know. It's a little hard for me to take that I've done olive oil Blooberg olive oil a one to one. Cd concentration that worked wonders for me as well. So when I switch between newly and bluebird whenever I find that my body might be camping out or whatever it is for me transition so I would say for me every six months out change back and forth and so do bluebird for six months. Go back to the newly for six months. I don't keep on doing that. but I'm I'm really looking at WANNA find a lack seed oil to see how I feel. Olive oil is kind of interesting for me. At least again. I'm speaking of my own personal experience missy. Feel a little full when I take. Yeah so not in a not bloated in a Serb. It feels a little bit kind of all empty. Doesn't do that so again. It's I think it's really about how you interact with the formulas that you're taking. You know that right. Yeah yeah and I totally. Do you have any problems with shelf? Life in the heat hempseed oil products. You know I take my CV. Pretty regularly so I don't know it's not on the table and then you out leader So personally good about managing shuffling up laments. We do advise clients. You know if you can take a regular because CD is a cumulative so you're does is going to be much further out than the day you're looking at right now but you know with all supplements we don't we don't advocate. You know to you and break place. That's cool sunlight and all that but it's fascinating do ticket regularly. Yeah yeah now totally and going back to the dispensary side so you open up the dispensary. What was will say like the first month or so like when you open your doors. Officially and and people are coming in What was some of the feedback received? And what were some of the lessons that you learned in those initial months? Yeah great question We were very lucky. I think we live in a very neighborhoody area so everyone each other every other shop. That's great so we were saying hi to everyone ebony. Hi To us What we did was very different. Is that you know how. When there's a store built out they usually just Would block the Windows. And they're building inside the they do. Huge reveal reveal We didn't do that because Callin I just had fun building out so people saw as it was happening like they saw us. Moving things are declaration was so in a sense. I think the neighborhood felt like they were on the journey with US versus versus having huge via word. They knew they knew all that. And they braced it with open arms. You know so. That's something that we are very lucky to have In you know when we first opened there were a few people in the end. I think for artists we get clients who are very curious about CBD with the first stop so they own empty side near the Wino- everything or we usually get there. Were there last thought. Would they traffic with tried everything? Detroit going on pain medication that tribe going all that one approaching much more of a natural plant based approach and we do get sometimes in the middle of the China world. They're coming back for another arm but most likely is usually the end that we get you know and since we've been around now for few months we're getting more the middle which is they try their. Cbd At other stores another or second opinion and they're coming to us without. I opened. It wasn't like that being said we had people who were so supportive into like we lost. Dvd WANNA try because my mother tried it on my job right. Yeah anything the other end of the past spectrum where they came to challenge. Which was you know? What are you guys doing this not? Fda approved at all so we saw the breath of clients that we were getting and you know and we really honestly appreciated the support and also the criticism because one helped us grow as a brand. That just meant that. We had to read a lot more books. That just meant that. We had to provide a lot more educational tools in the store. And we we designed the store she twice to meet those demands right before we first opened our education board was very limited because we didn't know what we needed to say as helpful for clients But we did that. Education Board up probably a month after we open it because we realize this was a need that they will have And also we designed it to have a section. There's books available so your Grade Alex. Hey Dan don't you can read. And that's with US. You know so now we have that and as we were developing we started really working very closely the doctor. General Chin slow the education side key much more full breath later on at war spawning to our clients needs and with that being said to will. We redesigned the wall was something that people don't understand does there's some that. I didn't understand what I I start now. And we realized that reading milligrams chew fo unions to very confusing and a lot of times clients. Come in but he's like I'm taking DVD or and it's not working. Okay of how how much you taking hold trumper. What does that mean in France? We don't know what was the bottle we don't know so. We realized that the math is fair that there needed to be a little bit more guideline on on intake that so we designed a section of the shop to be very focused on television. Which is that. You know exactly what? You're taking with formulations Ran You're taking And then we started designing a new little serving guides for clients so every time when a client walks away. They're walking away with a serving guy to to couple with whatever product that they bought so all that was really feel that we thought from all the clients interaction that we had at the beginning of of of artists. Yeah man that's great. The the math thing is such a big deal. Because I've run in that into that myself many many times where you just recently even just Members of my own family. They'll bring products to me and they're like what do you think about this and And you know we'll talk through what they're doing and if I say how many milligrams are you taking. That's usually the response I I don't know half dropper dropper and And so that's usually the beginning of the conversation and it's like well if you're trying to find relief the first thing you need to understand is what is your dose without knowing that how are you gonNA replicated With the way that the CD industry is right now with brands changing allot formulation. Sometimes changing a lot of really got to be able to decipher that and then the next conversation that usually comes after that is we have a conversation about cabinets interpretations and try and understand the chemistry of The product that someone's taking but I think he knows some times I have friend also plans to the store. Where they you know they love. Edibles public Milligrams you taking on edible. They're like a piece is Y- again. We knew that like a rice into rice or grain type of rice in that sense we we try our very best information. Talk as I'm monitoring my own. He released an Michael CD. Journey that that whole section is excellent. Point understand your dosing. And what was the jobs is? Yeah yeah no definitely when you got hit with the criticism. How did YOU How did you respond to that when when folks are coming in and We're very skeptical about what you're doing and everything. What was your general response? We always try to figure out. You know standing in their shoes. What is gripe right so you know for me a lot of times when they come into like? Oh this. Fda approved you know how you selling these products and making claims like that for us. We try to. We acknowledge we understand but we also give perspective like for example. Someone like me If I walk just a four in by a supplement it approved right in there only four. There's no seaway attached to any of these supplements of parental she in pro out of steam thing so so we try to comparisons like that. Where in on the cannabis and also on the CV center hemp side. Where active very vocal to make sure that you get all the information. That neat yes. Fda approval is is a part of it and we want to make sure that is regulated in a way that benefits everyone. You know the general supplements or not approved right Eddie. Once they hear the outwear their binder vitamins at whatever whenever there Bryan. The don't have ways they don't and they connected to this to understand where this is coming from right. Yeah he exactly one thing that I do with Saw Consult with CB companies sometimes about Usually more about like quality management how to ensure their products are consistent and safe and everything but we also get into FDA compliance issues. Too and one of the things that I'll do is I'll show them the FDA rules that list what medical claims can actually be made about Materials that might be in supplements and it's very very very. Few people are always surprised when I pull it up and you know. They expect to see quite a long list. 'cause you people are accustomed to seeing at grocery stores in anywhere you see these supplements and you see what they're used for their statements on the bottles about these things but Very very few medical claims about supplements are approved. That's not to mean that any claims about supplements are then wrong. You know it's just part of the regulatory model the way it is right now and it's something that I think what you're doing is good. 'cause I caution people you don't necessarily want the FDA to have to approve every single thing that you could put on a label either. I mean it's important to have the FDA statement say no this is not intended to treat a disease etc etc But if you really wanted the FDA to approve every single thing that you know goes on a dietary supplement or even a cosmetic then. You wouldn't be able to say anything to the media. Fashion site to comes to Beauty products you know. The the blacklisted Ingredient lists in the United States is very very lean compared to other areas of the World Cup. A part of me I think you have to be a smart consumer yet to empower yourself to know what works for you not necessarily understand their style lines but not necessarily not the spoken word of what you can kill us right right exactly. I'm smack too. I think empowering consumers know what they're buying is well in this segues into another really important concept that I wanted to cover so when you and Colin are looking at brands and try and evaluate. Who you want to showcase in the store or when you're talking to customers and try and explain to them how to evaluate a product or label everything How do you? How do you approach that specifically? Yeah so for artists we curate vice. You always look beautiful. Others honestly are are great but they're not happy or whatever it is We really don't have a reduced really care about the as If there is it they're testing for everything you know because in the end that's what the consumer is going to me adjusting in five Not only that but we also want to make sure that these as match the label on the bottle. F- most the time it's great other times. It's not where we talk a lot of things that were very different Lab reports do not match the bottle that claims to be the milligram off by hundreds. You know it's quite scary in that sense And sometimes they'll say there's no teach the teach the other times. It's so we try very hard to be very close to all the rats carry to make sure that we have an updated. Cla every time with avenue batch mixture that it's truly what's what's in it So That's how that messaging we then was share with our clients for example. If they're coming in they're looking for something more something that had more teach see than a product that they're the ratios little bit different. We know the ratio to most That's in store until we can talk in a much more impact. I want to know whatever authority to one. Which is you know the standard of THC. Or I want something. That's a little bit less than that. So we'll we'll curate that whole process with them. And if they have any stomach issues will curate carry oils with a tooth. Well Yeah and then so I think the messaging and also the actual reports translate directly to how we communicate that across to our clients on. I think it's it's it's a process like the sometimes commander like whatever I'll take and we don't do that like we don't try it like any time rush. We'll give you a quick little snippet but we really want you to be involved because again we. We have diminished expectations. So would they come? Yeah know we'll we'll spend anywhere from thirty to forty five minutes with with the client to go over everything with them as much as possible and you know women in rapids. St Means Different for me right so if you man document your cycles because when you're leading your anti-mine knuckles are higher. That when you're not so you don't need as much you know and you know when you're masturbating period. You might need a little bit more so we try to curate in that sense Joe and because you know we're actually the only minority women owned CD shop in Manhattan. We have a dedicated women's health section that other stores. You don't have so yes great. We try very hard to to make sure that we meet all the demands of everyone's walking it. Yeah no that's awesome to hear. I love the approach to the focus on quality quality products effective products. The medical education know and beyond I really stuck to hear all of that and I know When we were talking before we started recording. We're also talking about Journaling yes and I know that that's something that you always encourage people to do as well really excited to hear. Yeah you know I think. Journalists is a process. It's not glamorous and it's not quick and I think when I used to that right because everything you want to get away you want results you know you. Hopefully we'll get it right away and sometimes you know when they when people learn about. Cb's sometimes it can be just a an adjacent lesson from teach. See they're smoking? They've got high at night right. See you might not feel anything the first day. You might feel something you know you do it. So managing expectations very important. That's why journalism so we always advocate microdosing starting with a low sets up their PD. James said that increase you know through the days which reach optimal does but that time when it comes in we again going back to making a parallel other parts and other things that they're doing their wise but for example. If you were to take probiotics. Iino the first time you take. It's not gonNA help. You might find the October two months the DVD might weeks extending for hair loss. You were to use Rogaine. You're going to result at six months to year right not I wrote so I think giving Harrell's these into perspective and they're much more in the process that just taking them beating exactly. Yeah and it it. It makes makes it way more relatable so it's not just this like alien substance that you know they have heard about but have no way to put it into any conceptual box make sense of it. I you know journaling for me helped tremendously. I also understand what carry oils works for me from generally Idea asset of the dosing. Cy But maybe what trump profiles I really liked to and what. I don't do wallet so I think it's it's it's good and bad that you know what were for you west limitations were festival you And you know we provide a serving guy at the store and another thing that I think is a some people are used to that other very foreign concept. If you haven't or yourself so usually are parallel to titrate. Is that you know I've been on antidepressants. When I was younger I took Lhasa pro. And Doria familiar with that. So that what they gave me five milligrams efforts and then they checked in on me a month later lead me timber rafts. There like how how. How fibres is ten in general but moreover some days you know the triggers pretty bad you know I still get panic attacks We'll give you fifty now and that that's another month out checkup. So that is tight ocean. That's done that supervision of psychiatrists you do that yourself now becomes come to see the D- retreating according to the yourself now. Yes it's much more of an involved process but I think it's very empowering plus us because you really understand your body better after you do this so I think after we make that kind of analogy get I get it like before. It was with someone else now. I'm doing it myself so where I've been really helpful to have these kind of Parallel points that they can understand. How did you an intimate than their own? So yeah well. That's such a timely message. Because I just the last Behind the scenes interview are released on. The podcast was with doctor. James Taylor is a pain physician in North Carolina and he was talking about this to that with his patients that are trying to treat chronic pain with CBD. Some of them don't like they'll think nothing's happening until sometimes even a month or two out when they're using it and so it takes a lot of Patients to like get to that point and even there were a believe. Some of the EPA dialects research showed that It took up too sometimes ten weeks before effects would plateau and they did not see any changes anymore so I think it's a really important message for people to understand that it's like you said it's supplies of so many things it's not just CBD but you. You don't know how something's affecting you until it's been a part of your lifestyle for a while. Yeah and can't make rush decisions. No no and no. It's very you know unglamorous thing to say now in the world I it's everything's beyond what your checks but it does take time another thing that we also do is that we always say you know if you can dedicate a month to two months to taking it regularly and if you just stop just stop for two minutes of your time taking it to the time that you have that you took in journal through the whole experience. Have you find a CD? Is something that you need something. That's healthy you. You know when the peers that you're not ticking to reflect those three and see them completely not so I think just really being very much more client focused and magician. Their health is a priority. Not The planet has need these conversations very enriching when it comes to crank here. It's really hard to shop go. Don't take it like right now because you don't know until you try it right and is not beneficial then. There's other ways for us to help. We can connect to an acupuncturist weeks. another physician a dermatologist. Or whatever it is that you need by that time period is necessary to if this is something that's going on yeah and on a another side of this Because I know you're involved with like fashion and beauty as well. Have you been involved much in? Cbc In that realm like CD based cosmetic products. Yeah you know we carry issue at the Shaw you so as of now you can't advertise CBD on facebook or Instagram Ripe Ripe. So the only way for you to share your message is do with influencers or other Delight I think the marketing potential CD is a low cap track to other Markets Open Rep. Who meeting everything. But there are a few Cd FOCUS beauty brands. You know. That's out there accuracy myself so I can chew it in a more personal level but there are a lot of you are interested. I think I'm curious to see what the next research stops are to help with acne and to help with. Yeah on the skin you know. And I think we'll see a lot of a lot of it introduced the market and there's some of them are full spectrum and there's some that are not so All of that. It's it can be a very big moves in the. I'm hearing BUZZ AROUND RIGHT. Now that they're gonNA slow introduce a CD site to their so much. Yeah well just just. The concept of acne creams has been on my mind for a long time. Ever since I when I was writing curious about cannabis and you know that was the antibacterial of effects an anti-viral effects of of CBD. Those something that stood out why isn't there a CD. Acne cream and I know there are some products now and like you said. They're kind of building and popularity slowly. yeah there was something. I wanted to ask you about if you had any experience with that or Had Gotten feedback from anybody. That was that was using. Cbd In that way did it actually seems does seem to help Affect oil production and that sort of thing in skin. You know so Right now currently in the market. There's much there's a safety beauty focus products. Dr Welby does usually between oil or a beauty serum whatever this right not necessarily like a clean base right like like the treatment these Raja in that sense so I think a lot of times clients when they have asked me. They are associated with oil. Means more oil like right right. It's gonNA produce more well right so right acquisition so to break down that association to treat acne with oil is it takes some time for people to games to you know If your if your skin issue I think we'd fires much more intensive care we do suggest utility internally a ticket as tincture and also a method to us. Well I find that to be for me personally. The best approach as much as we advocate ticket for period of time and then stopped too. I did that myself so I took it or eight months straight and then I stopped taking it for two months to see what were wise and all that and the first thing. That was my skin my really. Oh yeah very like you know. That was the first thing I noticed. My skin wasn't as healthy as a internally glowing internally Khloe as it was when I was on it was interesting. Like yeah as as. Yeah Yeah So. That was my outside of the management course at those motivators emulating Honsi nowadays. Never meet people. That was the first thing they say that your skin looks naturally low in honestly. Nothing's changed but my just the incorporation of CD in my life to with you. Yeah Yeah Fascinating. Yeah you're the first person I've been able to talk to experience with CBD in that way. So yeah man as Super Super Interesting Maybe I'll have to start putting CBD cream on my face and see what happens. I I'm wondering a lot of times when I'm thinking about this. I wish there was a way for us to measure skin collagen production. Or you know all that with people who are taking CBD internally you not a top apart and see yeah a measure that can help with skin conditions. Well you know But as a bonus rate you get to treat your property on an have glowing. Yeah well let's Changing gears a little bit. I WanNa talk about And we'll see how the spins off. But how did you choose the name of Your City Shop Artemis? Yeah so Colin. We're talking back and forth than we want something that had roots in a very of familiar very kind of ancient way. You know an artemisinin. This House got us up until the Walt on his womanhood in it since we were you know the only women owned store in Wanted to represent that with our branding as well so I think that kind of bloomed into who she is. The woman wanted to. This woman is also protecting other women in her life to that was our kind of our audience and we wanted to surround that ethos as much as possible. You know having a working with Dr Melgen who is also a woman. Doing a eighteen for a ship was also woman owned in that sense and everything at the store had just themes of nature around artem assists. They are Or hero trees. Actually A CYPRESS STREET TO STORES UNIONIZED. And she got into the Wilderness and we had birds everywhere store. So there's lots of greenery the store out. There's lots of old books in the store. Looting bath against something that's familiar but yeah that's new in that. Yeah but everything happened. Very naturally very organically and wanted So th it. Our logo is actually the side which is again artem animal and we wanted to Corporate C. E. D. In that in that. So the head of the STAG is actually the head the compound in the antlers come out but you know do debated. Wow Yeah so. We had a one and he's only goes. I see the chemical structure in your logo. I said Thank Goodness. Someone noticed brand. We really wanted in much more much. Medical much scientific way and Built into our logo to as well. Oh that's so cool. Yeah I'll have to go back and look at it now. I hadn't caught that. That's great and one of the reasons. I ask is What I thought of when I first when I learned about your story and learn about the store and saw the name and everything. I know that you're a very big advocate for juvenile justice. And one of the things that popped in my head when I saw that and why I wanted to ask you why you chose. The name was because I know that artists is also known as like a Protector Goddess for children and particularly for for young women. And so that was another thing I wanted to bring up to see if The choice of artists connected to your personal story and your mission for supporting reforms to juvenile justice systems foster care systems and that sort of thing. I'm just so incredibly humbled and thankful that you saw that. That was not necessarily an active part of the Brandon. That was just the way that we that we brief you know Y Yeah artem issues of who we are and who she is and that was just what we do it. We don't we didn't think about that side of it but I think for me. Protecting young women has been ever be will always be an ongoing mission You know when it comes to juvenile justice. We have to rewind back understand. Why are these young youths and kids being placed there at the first place? Yeah most of them are from broken homes and most of the Muslim foster care small. When you know with me being the foster care system I remember meeting with my social worker. There's a lot of things that needs to be changed with the huskers to someone. I hope that's better now than when I was back in it. You know in in the nineties in early two thousands But you know I saw my social worker once a month. Maybe you know we barely mom. And she took a few notes whenever it was when she said to me that changed. My life was that I was gonNA happy that she was very blonde on us. You know for you guys. Meaning foster kids Thirty percent of you will women will be by the time you mets me. Thirty something on less than thirty percents will be conflated and ten percent will make a making meaning you know barely getting by you know maybe a few actually succeed and I was terrified of being homeless because I I knew that I wouldn't do anything wrong in the sense to become pregnant because I was dating it was just my focus was to make it out alive. I wasn't going to get myself in trouble to be incarcerated. You know so i. At least I could control those two elements in my life by being very just being home all the time and just kind of woodbine. The rules but being homeless something. That was very real to me so going back to can order this mission. Most of the kids in the juvenile justice system our product of foster care and their choice of being homeless. It's very real. You know I actually worked in a high security Juvenile detention center backed up. Just go when I was living central? Cisco I was actually teacher in there Site-wide now I welcome the outside in that sense and you know every honestly it was a maximum security was an all boys unit Not Not by choice for me. It was the closest you pension center that was sitting next to you at the time has have Cisco and most of my students or from foster care. They had their interaction scream at one point the other let them to where they are now so all of those pieces were very real. What else going through it. And now you know. It's just always on the top of my mind to make sure that we do our best in show that kids don't go through the scene or have the lack of opportunities yet that this system is built on. And it's unfortunately it's still cleaves in will and and what was that transition for you like because For My understanding of your story you entered the foster care system Fairly late add like was fifteen years old. Something like that So For me I was taken out of my home at about fifteen And I was pleased in a group home for six weeks and four days. It sounds like we talk about group. Homes I know exactly what I was in and out And then after that. I was pleased in a foster home. So I think is just a soft way of say An orphanage all the kids get Trivia this and then they get shuffled out there in the foster home. The I was pleased in was very close to my family. You know so. I don't understand this going up because I thought if abuse happened at home. Why is my foster close to my cool right right? You realize that. The system is built where they advocate. we just reuniting with with their biological family. That's the first priority. And if it's not healthy than separation as the second oldest so I also very counterintuitive stack scared the heck out of me all the time because I felt like they were just they can come back in time to have those abuse happen again but as adult learners near now But you know for me. I was actually abused one of five and that again when I was twelve and again was fourteen from different family members. Leaving the whole and I remember after teen I told my parents and I said I can't live like this like I just everything I mean. I told him that they saw half of it. And I said you know I can't live like this and I. There needs to be some something to change or whatever that is and they just didn't take action and I knew if I were home. My life is very different. I- trike. Now you said when I was fourteen I tried to be again when I was fifteen and so I just I think for me was to be online. I need to get away from the situation. That was a scout. All the only person I knew who happen to be a teacher. She was elementary school teacher. I don't remember what she just teacher and by law as you know you know your family that are in the teaching education site identity and so I you know I was a runaway. Basically stay with her and she reported abuse that so social services involved and they opened my case investigator and that became a shoot. The there was to criminal charges against to wipe my cousins and it was a lot now too. I had no idea that the moment I left the house to see her is just going to how I was going to stay with this woman. Who's going to help me now? Goes home like some. Did you know right? He had the time to the social my school hall. Social Services a few times. They will visit the home because there also physical beefs for my father call Though come home to check up on me the right reporting relief so I thought it'd be the same thing this time. Someone's GonNa come right report in the B. Idea that I was officially placed in foster care at that moment so I never saw my family again after and that was it. My family. Don't WanNa see me again. So it was kind of kind of worked out. At the age of fifteen. I just couldn't understand anything I just under. Yeah I don't know why I just couldn't understand anything. I couldn't understand why does happening. And there is a criminal charges. Ideal mention any of that you know but because of that I had to be placed under SA- Gadget care now. I was diagnosed with depression at the teen. I'd actually get treatment. Tell us twenty than our Gashi. Ptsd when I was also the teen in half so you know. When you're young time I thought I was out of it. You know like right. Yeah that'll pass. Time magazine or whatever and I didn't realize that was been catch up with me ten years later. I'm still you know dealing with it now. That no one tells you you're you know. Fi- fits right right. Yeah and I mean I can only imagine how you know the the anxiety depression all of that. I JUST. I have my own struggles with with some of those issues so I can empathize With with that battle is like because it doesn't just go away when life gets good. I mean I think for me. I never every time it's good. I think my mechanism is always to think it's GonNa get yes. Yes exactly. It's not always been kind of my life journey. And I've been so blessed honestly everything that's happening now by always think it's GonNa crumble and living like that is not healthy. Lock trump. I think it motivates you know is trying to go forward but internal can have low levels of stress that happens every thinking that everything is GonNa Crumble. Any Day now. It's not a healthy way to live and I didn't understand a healthier way tonight until much later my life in into all that stress. Now you've I'll bet you know before every time when if I'm in an elevator doesn't matter where I am elevated and the door opens. I haven't inside the CIA. I always think my parents or my cousins were yeah. That's what happened when I was going through my court cases. They're always so I just didn't connect the dots until I got old enough to understand the mechanism to respond to stress us. How can I manage this where it can open and they can be? There cannot be there but I'm still okay. You know like not. Yeah I think my journey with just seeking a more natural way has blended in with my own coping mechanism of how I deal with all the trauma that's happened And what were some of the changes that you started to make in your life to deal with some of those internal feelings and thoughts That anxiety the the panic attacks. What were some of the lifestyle changes that you began to make to address that question? You know I think from me I learn. This is probably not the healthiest days in. But it's not. It's not honest with you. I learned that if I can zone my energy into keeping someone else safe. I feel safer so believe it or not. Having a cat for me changed my life. Could I could protect my cat. I feel protected myself because no one talked about little girl in junker. Civic can transfer that Dan maybe I can work through my own issues too and given that I have after cats now but when I started with one that really changed our perspective. I think that I would see that. He's happy I can go. Maybe known was. They are for my little girl. Someone's Donau it's because it's not see mechanism employed with my cat so I'm okay with as an adult. You know so I think having those conversations has been very rewarding and has been very traumatic for me get at. I also think that you know. I got off antidepressants. You know back then when I started the because I didn't have insurance and know how to Afterwards no so I started cutting my pills twice beating myself off of it and I knew what it felt like the good thing about that journey from us. I knew what it felt like when there was a storm. Always overdue right and you always cloudy. It's always rainy over your head and you don't know how to get rid of that cloud no matter how hard you trump exercising hiking. You cannot give her that cloud until that chemical structures change right. So when I was wounded I saw the cloud lifted so I was able to see what happened when I had the cloud. half that's loud. Who Bach Yeah right when their symptoms at the cloud coming ago It's come Yup and now resolved because I know what's happening there so I think that has been a huge just reflection point for me. My journey in that sense And the introduction of CBD. I think just really empowered me to get my life back on track and went from having twenty four episodes And you know honestly growing up and being in being Foster Pierre. Also being as an adult preventative care is number. Something that was on top of my mind is is to. Oh I can't never was brought up with that. I was never trained so when I got the. Oc Doctor Right. But I did not get sick notes down so that transfer into my life sauce as an adult where Ya an episode doctor and they prescribe me something. I thought he knew everything. She knows. Everything going to work so that response to spend with always grain meet until I realized it was not working anymore. Where the help me find a solution for my perspective to change problem relying on someone to be. My own. Advocate was the biggest change from and that was when CBD Chemo taught me with that. So now I'm much preventive what. It TV also take Demand knows which is an anti inflammatory supplement to us. Well you know I try to move as much more of that site as possible and within the last year or two. I went from twenty four episodes in the year to Tunisia and A. Wow her happened. In my life I went from everyday beyond antibiotics to only on antibiotics last year. Two Thousand and nineteen just twice. Yeah so I know it works because I've lived it. Yeah and I tried everything and it did not work. In this. To me has really significantly improved my quality of life episodes. I still need help. I need you know something stronger. That my biggest priority is not to have them at all. Yeah wow that's amazing. I went through a similar series where I don't I don't know exactly how many panic attacks I was having a year but they were very frequent and Went through a very similar change For me Right before I moved to Oregon I had gone through a bunch of a drug trials for my pain And through that had been put on some antidepressants for off label. Use for chronic pain That whole drug trial experience was traumatic. Have like let's try this and it wasn't as slow as What you're describing like for my chronic pain drug trials. It was like every two weeks I would try. Something else goes pretty fast. And was they were pretty strong drugs. I one point. I was taking steroids and I was like. Why am I taking steroids? I can't take steroids forever but regardless I was put on steroids. I was put on antidepressants. I was put on Muscle relaxers the only thing they didn't do was put me on opioids. Thank God But pretty much everything else. I've tried to treat chronic pain and then I discovered cannabis and realized at the time. Besides some of my mental health stuff that I was that I was struggling with I was having these back spasms that would lay me out for days and it felt like someone was just kinda like driving a knife into the lower middle part of my back and It's really big problem. That's why I eventually went to go get in these drug trials and figure out something that would happen but I realized I started using cannabis and realize that as long as I had cabinets in my system. All of a sudden wasn't having having those back spasms anymore and it took me a while to like make those connections and and then I moved to Oregon and became a medical canvas patient and then was able to really see it and like I would get feedback from my wife. I'd be like all right. I'm going to stop taking it for a while and see what happens in the back. Spasms would always happen again and eventually my wife was just like what are you doing? Like you've learned your lesson. Just keep doing what you're doing But I noticed too with the mental health issues my panic attacks. The frequency went way down after it took a while but after a while it went way down and now they're fairly rare I'll maybe have one. Yeah once or twice a year usually but it used to be very very frequent. I had trouble going into stores when they were busy I feel like it would start off with feeling kind of CLAUSTROPHOBIC. My heart starting to race And then it would spiral from there and but now I have a basically these. Cd tinctures what I really like is like a four to one ratio of CD TA see or something like that but That I use pretty much every day just to maintain a balance on. I don't take a lot but you know it's like just enough to keep it in my system so that I'm at this baseline rather than what I was at before. Which was it was. It was horrible a genuinely horrible To live like that and I think it's just if affects Mba area of your life. Yeah not the. It does everything that surrounds it. That's why it's such a hard thing to live with it. Really just transfer so much But I mean he management wise like away from twenty four episodes of PELVIC SPASM TO TOO. I thought was I never thought that was possible. I thought yeah on antibiotics for the rest of my life until I could do it anymore. You know But because botox it just completely ruined my gut flora like Mike. Yeah Yeah I. That's why not buy. Why can't you have the array? Probably so you knew your stomach. So my stomach is always a mass. Like I'm always not like there's not everywhere and I can't tell you that the Nazi antibiotics or the stress. It's really hard to sweat out the difference now but it's just not healthy to move that cycle over and over again. You know right as I think from me it was when I was treating my pain. I saw the benefits with my excited. I saw the benefits with my skin. I saw the benefit my son. I saw all that and I think you know and like you said like for me. I do a thirty two one every day and then when I have when is my episodes coming on. I'm not sure that's a C. Yeah Yeah Yep Yep so I could feel the coming on and if that comes on off switch over to a one to one the nine. That's dampening it and it's really bad then. I have to the rich and they'll go back down to attribute it so it's I think it's just I enjoy living like this more because I just don't want all the other side effects that the antibiotics was causing me in my life and it was just it was it was not good for every other assets in a food and eating anything out right and there's such an intimate link between your health and your mental health. You know they influence each other. So yeah and really profound ways The have the gut health can really affect a lot of areas of your life And going backwards a little bit to the juvenile justice thing. Didn't you start and correct me if I'm wrong on this but didn't you start a I don't know if it's a nonprofit spinoff of Wendy's book but you're doing something now right to support juvenile justice reform so I'm on the board member of is out writers. We just okay. That's her Asian. Choose as well When I moved to La. I just couldn't find as Asian. That was the mute. What ELSE DOING CISCO In La the teaching program was different than San Francisco. So I at the time I couldn't get into the teaching program to teach inside the house. Doing inside World War. Gotcha do outside. Were which is what. Insult writers is And what we found working with Writers is that a lot of times visits foster here. Juvenile Justice Anything When it comes to an on off L. of times they are they're funding tied with a particular right. It's only the label for education this fundings for XYZ. That's how the can disperse there. Andrew can be very limiting but also empowering nonprofits so which could so the foundation that we started was very responsive it's lucrative what it is. What the what the youth or you know the foster care You know young person needs will respond to it. There's there's no. It's personal funding. There's no strings to anything. Gotcha here to get a bus pass. There's no two layers of conversation If they need housing because you know in La actually very very tough Some of our youth if they are transitioning might be placed in a homeless shelter for homeless shelters has actually waiting lists so you don't show right which a lot of people do not know that a lot of people assume that. Yeah you just show up and you've got a place for how it works and not only that if your family you you cannot get in a VM. So usually homeless shelters divided by gender either an all women's shelter allman shelter. It's very few family shelters so That either MOMS or dads but they're not together. Want to keep the family unit together. If that's the best for the family so what we do. We just work with local. Housing shelters woke motels and hotels on the area. And we just basically. That's it so if this is a transitional home for thirty days sixty days ninety days before they get a permanent housing then we we just covered out. That's it so what I really want to do. Was to have a seamless no-brainer. Whatever the person of the family needs we get it. That's all it is You know we understand the situation. We fill out a little questionnaire. They're very basic There's other questions asked. There's no layers of authorization. There's none of that. So that's how we bridge the two of until they get their service that they need though recently transferred to a off organization that can give them much more of a long trump service. But were there. Wow that's great. I think people underestimate the power of personal support being able to cut out the bureaucracy like that and just do what needs to be done elsewhere. I think you know as you know like sitting on water or see the internal workings of the business. It's a little frustrating because the need is there. Yeah yeah he's a naked. I think their kids. Because that's how I myself and I was going through it. You know but these are young adults. But you know you know. These young adults need it and she wants to sign off on it. That this huge. That's a huge difference that can impact their lives so instead of having lived in the car or whatever it is let's get them to the safest area hospital and then they can transition off to do. Whatever they need to do is in our own health since the Richmond. Yeah if anyone right now is listening or watching this and feels passionate about trying to help with this. 'cause what would you recommend that they do Regardless of where they might live. What are some things that people can do to try to help with this with this problem and give some of these kids and young adults some support yeah citing when it comes to foster care or just you know justice in general a he or a volunteering perspective or our helping perspective? I think the biggest message for me is this. This is not a short-term commitment. It really is not. This is not walk into necessarily homeless shelter and then you closer foods that day. It is not my favorite. You Know Foster Kids. We come from a place where being abandoned is a real issue so if you want to be involved please consider a long truck at least six months better because we want you to be with us you know Casa worker. I saw her twice and that gave me always sour taste Casa. I never saw her again that she just went off in Detroit thing. I honestly don't know what happened. But my you know my social worker was rotated a few times like everyone goes in all of your life so much. They need a constant foundation or system. Why aren't Don so pleased that you are considering getting involved foster care or do not? Just stay for as long as quickly six Munster. You're meaning that you might have to see this person once a month or once a week or whatever so that is a time commitment that I think we have to manage expertise to be realistic announced. There's lots of local chapters in your area tune that you can get walked in Twin it could be a judge. Appointed advocate Mijo changed my life. I saw her last than I saw my social worker but the time that we did see each other was extremely valuable like she treated me like. I was the only person sitting with her. You know and that's very important. Yeah Yeah and then she showed up to all of my hearing all of might might might criminal trial so I had to Colonel Charles against my two cousins than when I was watching this in Growing up I also saw court cases in courtrooms through the lens of a television. Right sure to sucks people sitting in the section when I was there Mice action was completely empty. Usually three women in my life was my investigator. My Attorney Mike or when it specialists city in on that table and that was it hasn't side all my were. They're pulling off the whole thing in the Jur- the jury was on my right. Always always recently that you don't understand sitting as a child. Seeing those three women changed my life. So if you WANNA get involved. I know that that might experience is very much love. Other girls are group's who especially in the juvenile court side so please consider be acquaint advocate you have to show up you just have to show up with was their email And other ways you can get involved is to donor find A great nonprofit that you really love Asked what their field work? Is You know. Are they sending to the actual facilities that just to visit these young people? You know that's very important In ece donor you have the right to know all we go so just get involved in that side too but you don't there's you can be hands on and be there or you can donate through the power of the basically remain. Yeah yeah well that's great. I'm glad we were able to to share that. That's something that I'm just very very Passionate about seeing changes to I mentioned to you that I'm adopted but I was adopted as a baby so I didn't wasn't put into foster care or anything like that but Talking about your relationship with your teacher and everything you know. My mom is a first grade. Teacher saw a lot of foster kids in you know just kids in the end young people just dealing with very intense situations that a lot of people take for granted and so my wariness about Those issues has been heightened in my consciousness for a long time. And it's something that my wife and I want to Eventually adopted child at something. I'm extremely passionate about doing because I know that the the need is there you know. Try to affect some change however we can To give people a better chance and he got sharing the S- The statistics that you mentioned of what the The outcomes are for children that are that are in these systems. It's heartbreaking really. I mean particularly. I mean I have a young daughter right now. So just imagining you know that that could be An outcome for her that she don't have ten percent chance of making it out. You know not being homeless or incarcerated or something you know this is It's hard to even even think about it just really breaks my heart so If you ever consider fostering another your way to many for you to his ear visiting our option I mean what the legality from foster to adoption. Minima right I mean if you were yeah then you decided to adopt like how does that work because none of my foster sisters. No-one I've met Ostra system was adopted so I don't know if that while will or if it's likely but statistically it was true Jason I was in a foster home and when I was there I I saw seven other girls rotating so in California and I think it still is the standard. Now you can have foster kids for every room that you have. You can have a faucet in the room for every window that you have. Your Room had know windows. That's what they were saying. I'm not Yeah get into best. So we basically had uh three foster girls or sisters the old and then One of them was actually a granddaughter of the of the foster mother that had us Instantly Half of them went to jail when all of them became pregnant late And the other girls that will were. You know a lot of times to foster Karen I get the hesitation from one. Sex scene it A man they rotate in. And then you know. Run away. The university mcgann action an indoor but most of the key men got out. And we're rated like it's scary. How statistically everyone found into place and Unsettling no they're still the last time I heard a think they there's still prison. I'm not I'm sure and also after you leave a secure system. You don't have any contact with anybody you're closed and that's it. You can use relationship with their foster mom enough. It's usually it. They don't WanNA relationship they don't really pursue than just just there's no it's rare. We have any relationship. Anyone that you go on. I think that's another thing that most people if they haven't been exposed to this in any way before they probably aren't aware of that either that you know you get to be eighteen or is at the age eighteen. Were the the cutoff. Yeah and then either basically on your own. It's crazy because I mean using that too when you're eighteen and I know what did you really know like deduct? Did you know how to apply from apartment? Issue NOT APPLY FOR A job. Like what is your degree. GonNa getting in that sense. You know How do you expect an eight year? Old Two IMACS. He's festively and then sometimes though just incarcerated just for the sake of having housing would right right so I think all of that comes into play in adopt. Why there is this very low. Success rates for any in any foster coach comes out for me because I was so scared being homeless. I thought what was the most perfect way for me to get out was to transfer into a dorm dorms. If we Yeah my mind was right. Each and they had only applied call which dormitories. Because I need to play. Celebrities couldn't do pretty college without I didn't know how to buy for so I applied to every UC school. There was and I said whatever dorms all pie there were like I didn't even know what are the state they were in. I just And because I was award the court my application fees wait so that gave me And I was rejected by basically all of that Except UC Berkeley. And I was very very lucky because UC Berkeley was the only semester school in California. There was a semester school. The school year started at the end of August. All the other schools were on a quarter system started at the end of September and I literally masturbated on my eighteenth birthday August. Twenty eight and the BERKELEYS. First Day of school was I was twenty. I went I went into school and that you cannot explain that any other way. You just cannot. It was just the Monday style on eighteenth. That was only that was only transition my hat. If I went to our into any other school I would have been homeless for a month. So yeah it is. I can't explain certain things that happened but it did. I so playful. It'd be opportunity. Yeah that's amazing. Yeah wow well I'm really really really glad that we've been able to to share the story. I know there's gotta be people out there that probably signing up to listen to a cannabis podcast. GonNa get hit with some heavier messages. But that's good they need to and I'm sure there's a lot of people that will listen to this that through one way or another either. They've been personally affected or know somebody that has been affected by something like this. And hopefully this'll be At the least bit inspiring but Hopefully it'll motivate people to understand that I mean this is a cause that does not get really talked about on a you know in mainstream media or something I I never see this issue. Get brought up and it's crazy because issues like this and education I get the most passionate about because you're talking about affecting the foundations of people that you know it's going to affect them for the rest of their lives So I mean these are to me. These are some of the biggest issues that we need to confront. If we can't take care of our young people And and give them good opportunities for education stuff. I mean the rest are just bandaids. I feel like you know Exactly right and it will be more expensive for US later. Exactly Yep Yep rented is to start and fix it versus trying to you like you said but abandoned over. Yeah well you can call and can fill great in the sense that you're kind of you know you're embodying the spirit of artists Through your your lives in your store. It's something to be proud of You ever knew you're pleased by you. Know Oh definitely I definitely will I my wife and I have been talking about trying to get out there for some time.

Let's try to push those conversations in the most meaningful directions we can. That's kind of. I don't know that's my overarching goal. At least I think it will say thank you so I have a one question I wanna ask you. That has nothing to do with. Cbd or juvenile justice during that. But it's just a fun question for me When I was reading one of your blog posts. I saw that you said that you learned English by watching. I Love Lucy.

She just blows my our listen sheet. How happy I was as a child. You know it was just. That's how well when I read. It just really stood out to me because I spent so many hours watching. I Love Lucy. She's so funny even just Set last year Or the year before my wife and I went to Universal Studios Hollywood and I remember seeing a Lucy impersonator and I was like. Oh my gosh. I've got to get a picture with Lucy and then coming back. We didn't see her again. And I didn't get my chance to go back but I'm a huge. I Love Lucy. Fan From my personal. Favorite episode is the Vitamin Regimen Commercial. Oh Yeah that one cracks me up so much or she's trying to say this complicated word and has to keep drinking.

"Love what matters is presented by Subaru in the Subaru love. Promise a commitment made by Subaru and it's retailers to do right by the communities in which we all live and work Subaru's partnership with leukemia and Lymphoma Society to deliver messages of hope has more than seven hundred hospitals nationwide to learn more about how Subaru gives back visit Subaru dot com slash. Love Dash. Promise I love what matters presents. Your story is a production of love what matters and iheartradio welcome to love what matters presents your story. I'm your host Colin Balfe founder of love. What matters love matters is so much more than a brand or a company to me a few years ago? My mother got sick with ovarian cancer. Eventually the chemotherapy didn't work anymore and we knew she. She had a couple of months left to live and so in those months I was very fortunate to have a chance to say goodbye to her flying a Florida and see her and with every the meeting she would basically look at me and say you're my youngest son. I know you're GonNa have a very hard time with my death. You're going to have a very hard time with my passing. I want you to take take this pain and take this grief and use it to fuel you and use it to create something beautiful. And so that's what I've tried to do with matters. I've tried to create a place where people you can share their personal stories of hope of compassion of kindness of grief and really showcase not only the pain in life but what can can come out of that pain and a lot of times. It's really beautiful. This season on love. What matters ars presents your story? I'm sitting down with some pretty remarkable and real people to hear their raw stories. We didn't have any kids like we didn't have have any children at all on Wednesday and then Thursday came in. They were like. Oh we want you to foster child and it's not like this is like a teenager or a child that knows how to care for themselves. This is a newborn like from birth. It was just like holy cow. We're GONNA take care of this baby for six months to year. We need a car seat. We need a crew. We need diapers. We need this. We need that it was so like oh my goodness this is really happening so so we were trying to process that in like thinking about like okay. Where can we go to create workers? Go to get a car seat that kind of stuff just to be able to help these birth parents out the next day they called and said Hey they want you to adopt the baby and I was just like what so now. We didn't have kids two days as ago yesterday. We had a foster child today. We have a child in literally happened overnight within a twenty four to forty eight hour. Time arm-span our whole lives changed in the blink of an eye. I'm calling valve and this is love. What matters presents your story? Sorry today. We'll bring you a story from Sadie. Who found a great reward award at the end of a long road dealing with infertility after two years trying to conceive she and her husband received a life changing call that made them parents overnight? sadie story of perseverance has really inspired me. And I hope it does the same for you. Me and my husband actually met online on this online dating website right. I had just moved to Houston three or four months prior so I was just kind of dabbling trying to meet friends stuff like that. Just because I was new to the city so we matched on there and it was like. Oh I'm glad swiped right wasn't on tinder but it was a match. The two were deeply in love. It wanted to start having having kids as soon as possible from the very beginning like my husband and I always talked about having kids and everything like that. You know. That's what you do. You follow them. Oh you get married. You have kids best routine in October of two thousand seventeen. I got my birth control taken out because I had heard that it takes a few months for a woman's his body to get back to normal after birth control and I have been on birth control consecutively for four years so I was trying to just get ready for after the wedding so that that we could start trying like right away. I got the birth control taken out in October and then every month from them. We're just kinda trying you know tracking that kind of thing. I had went to like my doctor to get them to run different tests. Lab work stuff like that just to see like if everything was okay and as far as data tell everything was normal they just kept saying like. Oh maybe you're not getting pregnant because of your weight. So they encouraged me to you know work out stuff like that and I've always has been super active like I was an athlete in high school and Middle School. That kind of thing. I've just always been on the larger side so that was mainly the thing that they were telling me was like. Oh if you lose lose weight you'll get pregnant right away. CD had a choice to make for me. It was like I have family history of diabetes and things like that and it's always been super important to me not to pass that kind of thing onto my kids and I mean even if I didn't they didn't have it like you know like it's still a possibility but I wanted to just do everything I could to be healthy enough to raise kids. Keep up with my kids that kind of thing so I mean. I had tried everything I was going to the gym regularly. I was eating right and I just just wasn't losing as much weight and it wasn't. It's not really the wait for me because I embraced by positively and everything like that but it was more of. I'm not getting pregnant and it's because of my weight so I was trying to do everything that could so when I found out that my health insurance covered the surgery than I was on it right away like from the very beginning so in February of Twenty nineteen. I had gastric bypass surgery. which is weight loss surgery where they remove about seventy five percent of your stomach so that way you physically can't eat as much as you used to so? I had that surgery in February of Twenty nineteen and within the first month I had already lost like thirty pounds. Wants and I'm down a total of eighty right now oozing. An excessive amount of weight can change a person's fertility. But when you have a weight loss surgery like CD did doctors. I will say to wait a year to a year and a half before trying to conceive but CD didn't WanNa wait. She wanted to get pregnant but even with her surgery. It just just wasn't happening they call it a peo- a s added which is a pianist. Stick addict because like you get so obsessed with wanting to to get pregnant that you are literally taking a test every day like oh my cycles lake. Maybe I'm pregnant but everybody knows that it could be it. Could be a number of things and and then like when you're trying to get pregnant because you know when you ovulate you can start testing like twelve days after ovulation which is way before your miss period so so I was like obsessed in like taking tests regularly like I was taking tests with me to work so I could take a test at work in every time like I would take her tests it was negative and there was at one point where I had swore Assad line on the test and me and my husband like we're like okay. We're GONNA get excited because we don't know if this is real and then the second. We started getting excited was Maasai cocaine and I had went to the emergency room and everything and they were like. Oh it looks like you had an early miscarriage. was that kind of thing. But they wouldn't really say like if I was pregnant or not because they hadn't been able to test me for pregnancy at the beginning so it was like we ended up grieving miscarriage that we ended up finding out later on that I wasn't actually pregnant. So it's like you have line is like you WanNa see a positive line on a test so bad that you stare at it and you stare they are added until you see the line more with Sadie after a quick break.

Love Dash Promise I'm calling Balfe. Welcome back to love. Love what matters city went back to her. Obgyn who referred her to till it specialists. They ran tests on me and found out that like I was fine in completely an an they test on my husband and found out that we actually had male factor infertility. That's not something that we talk about a lot just because it's kind of personal. Oh but they told us basically like our options were to either adopt or do IVF and like the cost of IBM. It's like eighteen thousand plus each cycle. So it's like a huge expense and you don't know if you're actually going to get pregnant once we found out like that was our option. Oh the cost is way too expensive for. IVF cost is way too expensive for adoption. Maybe we're just meant to be godparents like we have two daughters and I was like well. Maybe that's we're supposed to do may were supposed to be ants to our nieces and I've always been really go. Kids time with my husband. Maybe we were literally just put on this earth to help other people take care of their kids and we just gave up. I mean it was hard but at the same time it was like a stress reliever because we had been spending so much time being obsessed with trying to get pregnant trying to get pregnant traffic pregnant that it was just taken a toll on us as individuals. It's not so much as on our relationship but just us individuals like me not feeling worthy him. Not Feeling worthy like. Why is this happening for me? So it was becoming like a thing where our whole lives were revolved around date so we were just like you know what I think is just time we take a step back in whenever something supposed to work out for us than it'll happen whenever we least least expected. It was late Wednesday night. CDs Family was preparing to go on a four day cruise to Mexico. But CD wasn't joining both she. And Jarvis Service had just started. New Jobs couldn't get off work but CDS. Little sister had forgotten her life jacket and see what the drop it off. That's when Zaid's best friend friend texted her she said Hey. Would you ever be interested in fostering or adopting a baby and I was like well. Yeah of course but the the cost for that is so expensive I was like. I don't know how anybody could actually afford that like. I'm twenty three. I don't have fifty thousand dollars just sitting around for Friday right so I just told her like yeah would but. I don't think that it's a realistic situation. And she kind of just told me like hey will I may have some. I may know of a couple. Oh that's looking to place baby up for foster care or for adoption in. I told them that I thought that you would be fit. And I was like okay and it was Kinda just I kind of blew it off because I was like. There's no way in heck that this is just GonNa fall out. The Sky. CD Jarvis discussed the idea of fostering the child and agreed we do it. They were worried about getting attached but at the end of the day they wanted to help a child in need so then we told them yeah. We'll foster the baby. Then the next they called back and said the birth parents have decided that they want you guys to adopt the baby instead and we were like what and I'm at work like literally in training in this class where I'm supposed to be learning computer systems and things so I'm sitting there and I get this phone call and I walk out into the hallway and I'm standing on the third floor. Where like all the like? CEO's and stuff are and I'm standing there in this social worker is telling me like they want you to adopt the baby. They have made it. Click to me. was she say you need to spend the weekend and start getting stuff together and I was like what do you mean she was like. You need a car seat. And why a car seat are you serious yesterday or the day before yesterday. I didn't even know anything about a baby after for almost two years of trying to have a baby. seedy Jarvis were finally being offered the chance to be parents. He was already a week and a half old At this point so he had already been born. It wasn't like we had a lot of time to prepare like most people when they adopt they find out while the birth parents are still pregnant but we found out way after after the fact it just happened so fast and it just came totally out the blue so I was in the hallway at work on the floor like literally I had slid down the wall and I was sitting sitting on the floor. Like sprawled out. Basically on the phone with the caseworker and then I had to hang up with her and called my husband and try to explain to him. And I'm like I wish I would have just called you on three way because I don't even I feel like I'm missing stuff. I don't know if I'm giving you all the information. It was just very overwhelming keeper world. Walking past me looking at me like I was crazy for sitting on a hospital floor and I was. It's just like there's some crazy stuff going on this phone. It was exciting. I was trying not to get too excited. Just because I didn't know they were going to change their minds or if it was even real but the birth parents didn't change their mind that next Tuesday. CDN Jarvis signed the paperwork at ten am directly after they went to go meet their son and for the very first time his name was Ezra more with Sadie after a quick break. The Subaru Love Promises.

I'll be sharing real stories of love and compassion from real people all over the country. Listen and subscribe on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome back to love what matters. Let's dive back into CDs story since Ezra was born seven weeks early. He was kept in the newborn intensive care unit. So we walked in the nick. You and the nurse stopped us at the dorm. was like first of all. Who are you and we were like? Oh we're his parents and they were like. Oh okay well wash your hands and then come in and sit down so we walked in and we sat down and I just looked at him and was just like oh my goodness like this. This is a real baby. It wasn't until I held him and then the nurse said okay. Ezra here's your mommy and I was just like Oh my goodness is this is real. This is real life like I have a baby all of a sudden so much emotion just came over us so quickly and like right before we knew it. We were taking pictures taken. Our first family photo was just like it was just really unbelievable. Just like us trying to tell our families like like. Oh by the way your grandma or uncle or an aunt like just overnight was really crazy since both CD and Jarvis had started new jobs jobs they were able to take any time off while Ezra state in the Nicu but that didn't stop either of them. Every moment they weren't at work they were at the hospital with their son. So I would just go up there every single day and my husband would go up there every day before he went to work he worked night shift. Sometimes we will be there together sometimes sounds it will be just one of us. One day. My mom came with me. One day. His sister went with him so we were just it was part of our routine like we woke up. went to work went to the Nikki. That was just what we were doing every day during that time. Little Ezra was growing stronger. Me and Jarvis had went up to the Nick Queue to see him and we walked in washed. Our hands and my husband was taking forever to wash his hands so I just left him at the sink in Iran and went to the baby and I looked down at him and I I saw this red mark on his left cheek and I was like what is this on his face. For some reason I was thinking that somebody had done something to him like pinched him too to hard or something like that so I immediately like jump into mommy mode like defensive and I said what. The heck is my son's face and then I looked at him again. I said Aw. Oh his feeding tube is out all my goodness so it went for. Mike May Ready to fight these people to. Oh my gosh. Like he's doing really good. He's eating on his own. So I went like from literally thing the Black Panther to Cinderella like overnight. This amazing thing happened with CD Jarvis but but you know not all families awake and that is the case with this family CD and her husband are African American and their son. Ezra is white for the most part everything has been super positive. I have had some like negative comments coming from like the African American community saying. Oh there's so many African American your kids in the system. How could you adopt a Caucasian baby? People don't understand how adoption works. It's not like a grocery store how you walk and you say I want at this this this and this because I think TV portrays it as like an orphanage where you walk in. You're like I want that one Mike how you do when you go look for puppy. You're like I want that one. But it's not the case as at all it's like if you really WanNa adopt a child like you get you can have preferences but it makes it a little harder. So people think that we hand selected this child but it wasn't like you bet but majority of the stuff that we've gotten has been nothing but positively CD and Jarvis's journey happy ending but CD knows her and her family story story isn't the same for everyone. It's a long process amby tedious. It doesn't happen for everybody. It happened for us. It happened for us out. The blue there are people people out there that are going through the adoption process and have been going at it for months or years so I just say like don't give up just keep going at it there's people out there that love you and that are supporting you in. That are going to the same thing. There's just some people that just don't know how to say it or don't want to talk about it out loud suggests hang tough because once you get that at baby once you get what you've been waiting for so long it's GonNa be one hundred times worth it.

If you are going to Podcast, JUST PODCAST! PHD121
"If you're gonna podcast to host podcast. Hey, this is Mike and this podcast help desk. Don't even remember the number. But it'll be in the feed anyway, today, a lot of a lot of issues. But I'm getting a lot of questions something like who amusing the apple tags and I'm using an apple summary in the apple title, and the apple episode number? But it still using my regular title as the title at apple podcasts. And then I look in, if I opened it up in the apple podcasts app on my phone, it's using the right tags as they specified. But if you use the web preview or the IT tunes desktop software, which is still on the MAC, but going away and we'll. Continue on windows for the foreseeable future. It's not it's using the blog title, and it's using the blog content for the show notes. Okay. Well, here's my solution. Right. You're your blog titled to be the title, you ought to use. Right. Your blog post to what everybody you what you want to show in your show. Notes everywhere, don't try to be different. You're not going to be able to force all the apps to do what you want them to do you just not. Unfortunately RSS is a standard, and it is the standard we use for podcasting. So what it goes into the RSS feed if you only give them one choice, then everybody will use the same thing if you have multiple choices, some we'll take once on, we'll take the other there's nothing you can do to control this. So I guess what my message would be is please, please, please, please. If you're really picky about what shows up in the apps then righted it in the blog post title, or write it in the show notes the way you want it to show everywhere. Getting the fancier, you get the, the less control. You're going to have over what who does what you know, you know, it's just like episodic images. They did a whole episode about that awhile back and people still don't get that you can't force apple or Google, or Stitcher, or tune in, or Spotify, or any of the other apps out there on Android, or IOS. Or, you know, some of the other services like Pandora iheart. Whatever you can't force them to use any particular thing that you put near feet unless you only give them one choice. You know, someone asked me recently, the no agenda show, Adam curry, and John CD Voracek every episode, you see a different piece of artwork show up everywhere. That's not because they're doing anything special and they're not they're not trying to be fancy. What they do is they changed the overall our orc for the feed every episode so every all the apps don't have a choice. They just pull a new one and you know you can do that. But how much is that really worth? You know, I. I get it that you want it to be a certain way. I and I get that people want things to be, you know, just the way they want them. But sometimes that just isn't how it works. You know, just not how it works. You can't you can't force all the different services out there to do exactly what you want them to do. So the only way to do that is to when you post your podcast and MSN you're using WordPress, but this works pretty much anywhere else. Whatever you put in the title, the main title will be the title in everybody uses, if that's the only choice you give them whatever you type in the quote unquote, show notes, or in WordPress. The main content area is, what is going to show up in all of the apps if that's all you give them the choice of if you give them a choice, some, we'll take them on choice. Some we'll take another choice. And, you know, just to put your mind at ease ninety percent of your podcast listeners are going to subscribe to your podcast in an app, they're going to see that you have a new on, they're going to look at your artwork and it's probably going to be your main artwork, unless you change it every episode like divorce act and curry do and they're gonna hit play, and they're going to stick the phone back in their pocket. They're not going to read what you have in there. They're barely probably gonna read the title. Okay. It's, it's not something that everybody focuses on same thing with your website. Your website can be kinda simple. You know the rate your website for Google. You know, and, and, you know, if you write it write for Google, you'll, you know, it'll be good for your readers listeners, whatever. But, you know, don't worry so much about every fiddly little detail on your website because most people aren't gonna see it seriously. You know unless you have, you know some compelling calls to action to come back to your website for whatever reason you're not most people are going to see it. But once you'll find it in Google goal is pretty cool though. Hit the subscribe button. And then you'll they'll never see your website again. Or if they do, they're just gonna come there to see if anything's new or whatever, but, you know, being ultra picky about the website and about, you know what shows wear is really just gonna drive you nuts. I swear, you know, a lot of people lose a lot of sleep over things that don't matter focus on. What matters focus on the content, you know. Yeah. I like my website to look decent and. It does. I think it's good enough. You know, do wanna spectacular website depends on what I'm doing with my website. But if I'm podcasting on a podcast website, then I thought cast on the podcast website, I don't try to make it be all to everything and be different in different places. Just trust me. You know make make it easy for yourself. You know, if you want the title to be a certain way you type the title a certain way in the post, you want the show notes to be a certain way you type them the certain way in post in don't give them all the choices, you know. And if you do give them choices just beware that some apps will not use them in some apps will use them. It's just, you know, it's just a matter of fact, RSS is a standard app developers in directory developers and owners. They choose what parts of your RSS feed to us and how to display said things. So the less you worry about it the better off. You'll be anyway sorry for this little mini rant, but you have a great day and stay dry. We're having a little bit of a monsoon up here in northern Michigan. Gets me later.
Rainforest Dwellers and Urbanites Have Consistently Different Microbiomes
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Alina organ. Brown our microbiomes. The tiny organisms UNISOM that live on us in Innis can influence our health and a recent study looked microbiome composition diversity depending on where and how we live given the same latitude and climate across South America. We found a gradient over bunny stations from a jungle houses hats off. Marion people leaving traditional lifestyles. All the way to a modern CD Lake Manas was the differences in microbes from our houses and from our a skin and differences in exposure to chemicals. Microbiologist Maria Gloria Dominguez Peyot from Rutgers University. She and her colleagues collected samples from people pets pets and spaces in homes like the kitchen bathroom and bedrooms. They analyzed bacteria. Fungi parasites chemicals and they found two trends As you go from the rainforest to a farm to a town to the city of House with increasing using population density we are exposed to a higher diversity of fungi. We carry more diversity of fungi in our skin. Hey Buddy nowhere got. We lose microbial diversity. The study is in the journal Nature Microbiology. Urban homes US more more chemical cleaners than do rural or rainforest homes and they're more likely to be built out of synthetic materials so city residents are burdened with more chemicals including including metabolites of cleaners detergents paints in and on their bodies. In addition the microbes of urban dwellers are far more like each other than they are like the more healthful mix found in the rainforest. Domingos Baeau thinks one reason is that we are two isolated from natural landscapes. We have grown culturally very anti anti dirt. We we call dirt there at the end. You know we call the soil dirt and that already has a connotation of undesirable they are bowl perhaps city living could be a bit healthier with fewer chemicals from cleansers and more microbes from what gets cleaned for scientific.

I would like to give Mo- meaning of my life and the decided to go back to university and to do what I love to do learning because I have a would going personality I seen. I love care about hotels. Michael League Advice me to today's development and at this time. I didn't know anything about sustainable developments who I resume lies with master degrees in sustainable development at the University. Pavlou she know and what I learned during this master changed my life totally I wanted to change the world and contribute at my level to build the bitter world and the during the study trip in Nederlander I discover Yuban planning. I realized that I found my coyly wire. Finally the reason is clear. If sustainable development impact every single every scene is the in the city I e means People Food Transportation Energy Economy social community. Everything is in the city and We need to find a balance to help people to be balance if the Design people cannot feel whaler and the city can be prosperous environment as a direct impact on our behavior and the mindset and it is very useful for me to have a background in low and finance to address the issue of the sustainability especially for city and territory were governance and the economy of very Santa's as well political issue in your definition. What is a sustainable city as sustainable city or follow my point of view as Houston about teaching? Need to integrate busy seeking. But it's very important to reminded. I mean a sustainable city I need to have a good design and unintelligent your run planning and intelligence. You're planning with an integrate integrated vision. What will be for example my country on my city in two thousand fifteen the firstborn tease whoever long vision long-term vision and for example in Singapore. We know that in two thousand fifty on the right now. It's a ongoing disease. The country of the smart city. And the you know. Maybe the Sheila's author cynic Count Essay Down New Federal Window for one. Who doesn't know where it's going? Whatever the country of the city the preservation of the natural and biodiversity is a censure and Yuban planning or Dorado A to define a fair place for human as part of the biodiversity which doesn't mean that the earth is only the the UN home trust. It's a long vision. Saddam is to integrate the preservation of natural and the bio biodiversity. That was a decision. Should be translated into into a messed up. Land set included infrastructure and services provide from a population of rice. Show around three thousand people. What it doesn't mean that at the local level you cannot be creative. I explain new data Quite technical because I eat. Your vision is not translating the master plumber with long-term vision and the infrastructure antiquated inside. And you care about the population ratio about three thousand people on the local level. You cooled of Ubon Development Very Very Archaic and the and the bad but the a c t for me sustainable. Ct must meet the principal. Need of the people as defined in domes- slow he a need says Theresa Chaz needs Social needs stimulates self actualization needs. Only for my punch. You wants to have some D- Master planned you may consider using new technology over technology is only on the AD. Owner technology cannot heal the city. That have been badly designed. It means that long vision integrated biodiversity and the and the preservation of land to be at the service of the population and to find a solution for the need to translate the vision in the masterplans with the infrastructure at the level of a smaller ratio of population. And I think it's very important for me to explain the bags Dabezies also European planning before to talk about smart city and new technology because Yuban designer like her medicine for the city and the technology. It's like a vitamin and the as you know. The timing can play a big role to manage the city to promote new services to the possibility to have more efficiency. Seventy bets You cannot put determine with body didn't Yeah I know that. You're the head of for Young Company consultancy at a couple of days Given that would you just mentioned the design is very important. Technology comes afterwards if we start with the design who is in charge of taking these decisions. Who is the driving force of seeking transformation? Which kind of body organs government government's? Where where does it start? Where does your company enter isolate? Think that I When I talk about the vision. It's not necessary envision confront professional division for me to come from Gouvernement. Why because our elected usually by the population and the need to know and to explain what they want. The country for example told the future yours and your question is very interesting because it's a way for me to try to explain the the responsibility between each people in the supply chain of the smart city of the fabric of the city because sometimes it's not clarify and the when it's not clarify. This is terrible on the on the local site but I is the government all Mayor Vision. I want to be. I want to to do night. City I want to build my city my country smart all. I want to be of my citric city Ikea Tropicana city. I don't know whether you were and after that this translation. It's a walk between three kind of poppulation. I governments gone professional and so popular action and Danny to work together. I two as the need to population and usually provisional can ask the need to the population in linguist gouvernement to find the best solution. What is the innovation at White Camp? Sign the bit solution for Almir territory ends up after that that created a master planned but the first input it's politics but of course the political decision needs to be adapted to the needs of the population. The program on the city is usually you have. You can have a mayor you want to to create an economic building in the in the city and at the end just to be for him for the population. This is only and the. It's for these reasons that you can preserve this kind of a situation is your vision is clear down and the dissolution is button right. You're just the politicians come and or the mayor is there for four years of supposedly. He doesn't take usually the long term decisions. I want to completely remake the city. So that it's comfortable first of all. Ben Sustainable Than Smart Than Integrated Technology. But they always start with nine one this bridge or one this economic building and that will be. I will be remembered for that. Where does this change from mental change should come from that? It's the question of goods. What is interesting in Singapore? I can give you a concrete example incident gap pool. Singapore's asks you ten years old. It was not contrary at the end. It was a small island with a lot of Slammed I c. h. e. percent of the population lived in the in the today fifty years little eighty one percent of Singaporean. As living in the age you are owner of the house. It's very interesting to seize that Lincoln. You the father of singer who as a real vision for his country but division was not five years six years. You was for one hundred years because he considered a designs that senior post story when he passed away. Singapore steel continue on its case and digging for long-term vision and each ten years. Division changed a little bit. But it's the only solution to sing globally the city and you're right. The electoral calendar for the mayor is a real problem. But it's so decisions when I talk about Vision Divisions Continue and the mayor need to understand. Here elected do population just to edge. The people to be appeared in the city to leave well during vast. You know what I mean but yeah. I think that this is the first problem when you talk about a sustainable city and its decisions at Of Today on the world I never a given I. I don't know a sustainable city because a lot of initiative very interesting and we can talk about it but at the end because the problem is the short term vision. It's complicated to to a real assistant city because the need can change depending of the need of the population because as I explained the need of the population is the mass low needs. Of course this population changed and now we are. We use new technology and human needs the basic needs to the same. It's to hit to to move to you. Know regarding this need is not complicated too long vision to plan New Territory End. Twenty grade or saw the demographic change like a prospective in fact the two factor. I is division. What do you want to do? And signals a factor is the evolution of your demographic and after can plane. You know to be to sing the city and to be In charge of to be Yuban planner. It's the Knicks of the missing in one hundred. Secondly it's a prophecy because you don't know what will be the recent of the decisions at EU thicke right now. The result will be in the future. It's all these reasons. I two of long vision into play to plan for the long term. It's very important because you can just write in your team in a couple days. What kind of professionals come under the same roof to do been played in sustainable urban planning side twee are most talk catalyst to create the city right now? You need to have a lot of competency of skills. And what is complicated? It's to look for a while in the same direction and to manage the the difference. Kill for example. We can bring some architect. Your Ben Planner Economists Ingenieur note of engineer. A Lotta lots of kids and the out job is to be like a cat at least From the social perspective what makes a CT safe? I think that the first point is education and prevention if his a by education and Prevention Yuli meet the risk of insecurity in the city disinclined to we'd be maybe due to protect people and technology. I sink can help to educate and improve a wellness and those who to onto the risk for example regarding the Dorsal sees that as a French company as developed A DASHBOARD FOR EMPTY-HANDED SEVERAL CITIES TO EPA Mayo to manage the CIT in real time for example. In your time you can change the duration of the red lights battles on the traffic. You can monitor utilities by bullying make recommendations to reduce for example water on the energy consumption and the also you can for example a look at the the elderly people who aren't shows Dass Chilean life by shaking the use of utilities all doom. Cg SAFE now three Peter. I think that's really education and prevention low of course and the new technology. You know a- curious that you should mention Three distributors for the safety and specifically mentioned technology Came to my mind that this is how a Singapore combat nineteen because they were able with the use of Technology Cameras. Big Data A to trace every infected citizen or lead. They found one infected and they can trace back everyone who they contacted with him. This is one of the reasons they were able to flat curve. So I so what? What's your take on the technology and I A- pro or against you think it's GonNa do humanity in the city any good or shall we rather start being paranoid. I devote I believe in in progress. Fourth and with these regards. New Technologies are definitely in barrels of progress. If and only if we use it to under good based on the for the good cool technology as I explain can aid to be more virtuous Tool dangerous depending on. What will we critics? Give me you wanted to leave. I don't want to leave in a dystopia in the world as described in the Novella Nineteen eighty-four from Joel and the I'm not fun to monetize. The data is a real business for compagnie right now but for me it's bad business and sustainable we. We need to preserve the snug data as global public. Good for my point of view but I believe in progress and to take your exemplary level Singapore and the coronavirus. It's not just a question of the technology disappoint was the question. I think of the trust with the government population development because development of Singapore are very proficient And That explain very well clearly. In remember in January I give a lot of information and we take care. Each foser and after technology was very good to tracking of course and to help to win you sink about trade king for example so where suit to prevent the other people that you are in Be Seek ended. So it's not too bad at some point on your career. You organize launched an initiative with a miracle miracle You to a group of students from France Being went into Morrocco to Casablanca the group from Moroccan Students K over Moroccan students came to France to exchange ideas. News Eliot Denise unless you're visited Esab Lanka and I was surprised to say the least. How different they somewhat similar. Seated is using their waterfront. In niece uses long prominent people have access to the beaches to the water. They run along the shore and in Casablanca that that is just blocked by concrete fans. No one knows what has happened in behind. There is no view on their ocean. There is no way to see the water. I remember reading a book on Urban Planning on. Sustainable fifty in someone was saying if the city is blessed with water access. It should use it for for common reiter so. I grew up with this ideals the water in Ctbt River Sea and ocean is the big is a great blessing. A what do you think is the reason for such a different approach. In similarly same CDs like Lease Casablanca L. Regarding the cheap penny of Casablanca and the niece for example disease found no seen prevents secons. Ceelo or the keys from mckinney. Who'd yoga planning decision and accept the like a vision competency or technical capacity to integrate global issue? And you're right and it's for this reason that the beginning I explained that division is imposed on the planet occasion. The plan is important. Also because when it's designed in in the concrete it's down you cannot change. It's not like you have a draw on the packer it's done it's finished it's the case in Casablanca but the the for me. It's a lack of vision competency and technical capacity and the it's showtime vision for example as you know in case you are being more better. It's interesting to for the business but it's not the global of vision you but at the same time Casablanca till Casablanca and it's a beautiful Oughta city. I get to see because I didn't feel safe on the sloughed. This is also you know. It's a siege. Like any other pets. I couldn't be there low but it's true that sometimes you have been planning X. Quite a specific to Morocco and the between the same time in France. We have also Nin In cities. I seem that the problem of lack of vision and competencies of technical capacity is not the problem of one country bachelor snowball and regarding the student we do in Casablanca. The project was to find a life of the whole the slaughterhouse at 'twas to promote miracle American heart and the artist one pre last question. They win report. Says like seventy percent of global population will be in the CDs by two thousand fifty. I'm mistaken so basically in thirty years than nothing with the coronavirus crisis I see that more and more people talking about moving to private houses somewhere in the rural areas to have their little plot of land. What do you think that trend will be We go into still be wanting to believing in the CDs or the current trend will reverse it his think about it. In nineteen fifty. The worldwide population was around two billion. Five of people. Today as you know we are saving going to civilian Media Nizing. You're more or less we coronavirus and the we will be almost ten million in two thousand. T- accu explain end. The these data could give us a reasonable idea of depression on under unvarying months east. So we consider that we need to eat to drink. Water beetles red wine to leave on the. If we consider that the capacity of the hearse Take time to regenerate we must preserve land and biodiversity. It's not an option and to reduce the pressure on the environment. Then don't see t's not a an option intact and This is a really crucial to promote the concept of the entity Yuban planning and to sing very well and strongly the design of the city to the rational. A concept yes. I think that this is my own. Swirl density is not an option and the technology cool the notre result the facts that we need to keep land to feed ten billion people. And it's not because you need filed the city's at jewel in the city and You know or the Infrastructure Services on to C. T. and we need to keep the London presented. Biology vestige range will be very dependent on infrastructure to having yes some infrastructure the democratic changes the big deal even though now it really looks appealing to have a little plot at little house to be able to go outside even in your own tiny you tiny garden. It's hard to that. Also don't see a for a lot of opportunity for civility for the population to leave depending Your city I will do to preserve the natural in the city as the case in Singapore in Singapore skins out high density. But never never you feel to Haydn Institute really what I sees at Singapore. We'd surreal success. Story it's a because Yuban planning contribute to the development of syncopal industry of Sangha Pool should be inspire love of country and often often. I heard that yes. But Singapore. We'd smalley loan the Weezer. Six billion of Six million people at the end. It's not a question of size. It's a question of ratio of population. If you are a vision and a good ratio of operation to sink your yoga planning you can imagine like a consumers. Union city a lot of development for your country does each not appropriate. Really feel like I should visit because it's hard to mentioned everyone talks about Singapore eight three one I actually approached with this topic was living in Singapore. I already interviewed my classmate Singapore in class mate. Who gave me a lot of background on the governance on House in Newport works on the history and why and how they arrived to this point today in it feels like let's The lace and It's what when I talk about when I explained Singapore when I'm writing a book about syncopal end the best practice of Singapore to share with France in particular people. Think no it's not possible as such success is not possible but yes it's true it's true and it works and senior worlds very well and I'm not here from syncopal. I'm here to talk about sustainable end the spots. I can say also that. Singapore is not really a sustainable because because a lot of sink but if you compare with a the country with the the fact that Singapore has no resources the only resources that Singapore have is the population Anzac fifty years ago. The population was not educated. Like now and in fifty years syncopal her the worldwide place. It's incredible the school a out in the good around. The worldwide chess is incredible but Yuban planning was a base of Singapore. Tell me it was probably the less question I know. We're running to the end of the interview When will you be out? Maybe in two months in French one less question your own book recommendation for Sustainable Urban. Planning what would you suggest? I'm curious about economy. I read a book from the Ed Lesser. I don't know if she knew had lesser is unequaled AMIS sent he wrote a book titled The trillions of the City and district Our great invention makes us richer. Smarter Greener has shown up here and this book is bursting with the inside on policy presided to the vet and as you know. French love debates and I think it's a good amazing.

like dry mashed potatoes or dry chicken you could get the basic neutral Of Life I lived in France for a little while a hundred years ago I was a missionary there and you all know that French food is delicious Shen but it's the sauce that adds the spice and the flavor and makes it taste so good I love artists I am I'm grateful for anyone who creates and shares on any level doesn't have to be professional so some examples that when you live in France get to be in people's homes which means you get to be in people's Kitchens and got to cook alongside many learned is that the secret to French food is their sauce and I learned how to make incredibly delicious side the Friday night and share it with us and not be embarrassed about it and when two years later I still remember that night of entertainment he had taken the time to learn the skill but I remember feeling grateful that he had taken the time to hone that talent and that he would come come readily to mind when I was very I married my husband and I attended church congregation with only newly married college one guy that did a magical comedy routine around the Campfire I laughed so hard that night my stomach hurt for three days not readily available to see or find so we know it takes some time thank you for everyone who has done that and they want to share a review of the week that came in days afterward it was awesome and he wasn't doing it professionally I mean he was probably he was in college like the rest of us were and he was probably steady all felt so united and connected around the campfire that evening I love Comedians I love humor you know those friends you have that you love there weren't any children in the congregation there really wasn't anyone over the age of twenty five and we altogether went on a weekend campout and there was to be around because they are so funny they have a unique way of seeing and saying life you never know what is going to come out of their mouth I believe humor is an art another thing I love our accents I don't know why I love accents real I haven't seen him since I I don't even remember his name but I remember how he made me laugh and how we tests before I had approached writing as kind of an academic skill as something maybe more sterile and certainly seeing some like something like bioengineering or something rather serious and I don't remember what got him interested in doing magic and comedy or cents on a dime and it is hilarious I love conversations when she gets into mood and suddenly having an international talk with an Irish Lee is creating art developing artistic skill requires practice daily practice I could go on process was to learning to play piano I had to sit my butt in a chair for at least an hour every day and plunk away the keys the or a German lady or a Scottish man and I don't know why it's so colorful and entertaining I think being able to accents is an art of course I love writers it took me a long time in my writing journey to think of writers as art accents or imitation accents with the Internet and social media it seems our world is becoming more and more monochromatic and I like that around children with humor that adults can appreciate thank you for creating art that I actually enjoy sitting down to watch with my kids for me life without artists would be a black and white outlined like blink coloring book when I and at first came out wasn't very pretty but little by little over time it got better a ha- that is on about writers that I love books that have changed my life so I'm not going to or that would be an entire podcast itself I do want to mention artists so many thank heavens for Pixar animation studios thank you pick are for creating animated movies look back on my life on raising young children it was my encounters with art that added the color to my pages and I feel that way about nature yeah I didn't view myself as a writer as an artist and what finally gave me that a ha was realizing how similar my writing but you know that when you're around them your belly is going to hurt in a good way I'm really grateful for people with a good sense of humor I if I would have survived mothering young children without Dr Seuss and Betsy Lewin her book click clack moo cows at that time recreate for children think the heavens truly for artists who create for children I do not know through how about the gorgeous language and illustrations of dawn and Audrey would the napping house king bit goods in the bathtub keep and click clack quack so darling during cronin diary of a worm and diary of a spider those album if you need an upgrade to the ABC song while learning a little geography go check out they might be giants alphabet of nations the world we realized that we are more similar than we are different but I hope we don't lose our accents I have a friend who can shift into which makes sense of course because God is the great artists and being in nature is to experience art I feel extreme gratitude for artists we're here sorry nursery album recorders that sound like you hired Donna Reed to seeing straight from the book of Mother Goose accompanied by a few basic piano chords I said original over the top fund of the other thirteen tracks I can forgive track number seven Oh and did you know they might be giants did a kid auto tuned lip sync have mercy on US mothers whose mental faculties are already as fragile as the threat of Justin Bieber's relationships I o n Oh I love those books and I would read them by myself even if I didn't have a child to read them to I could sit with those picture books on the couch by myself and read them who create clever engaging fun music for children I am not talking about that. CD OF MARY had a little lamb sung to a strong of a guitar rex catchy tunes and comedic poetry set to music how a Tony and emmy winning performer creating children's stories and music I don't know you didn't have to you didn't need to and yet you did and for this I say John Lithgow thank you and I mean it stranded musical mental fortitude remaining in my brain to John Lithgow and his children's album singing in the bathtub. Thank you John Lithgow for witty pose you have your place in the world and you are certainly better than nothing but goodness if I had to listen to your menu in the car one more time I would have our personal favorites were from the indies to the Andes in his undies and he never took a bath except on Sundays and the classic Song Big Kids scared the heck out of me on my life Josh Grogan you know Josh Grogan the gorgeous voice in two thousand one Josh grow had released I said that I would name five of my favorite artists which is really hard to do I mean it's harder than naming five of my favorite children I can eat five of my favorite children with no problem it was amazing over the top fantastic number two number two a favorite artist who has had a big influence up to the dinner table than they have dollars in the bank account I think every book CD and Song I mentioned we discovered through our public library you raise me up they loved that song and they would sing it at the top of their lungs little five and six year olds all the way a home from school and then my brother passed away and on that album was the song fly me up to where you are B Youtube the older version I like the older version better than their twenty twelve upgrade it's better it's better than the remake and here my harked at the drive-thru of the crazy house and checked myself in and kids BOP please with your aerobics cise top forty synthetic if John Lithgow for all the reasons mentioned above and did you know he did a one man show for a little while it actually came to Provo and then he did on Broadway and we friends with kids if you want a squared a fund in your day ask Alexa play John Lewis goes album singing in the bathtub or youtube it happens when someone eights art from their heart that it is carried and connected to the people who vertu think who has gone onto their podcast APP and left me a review I forget to do that I forget to talk about reviews and you need it and that song healed my heart my heart needed that song I would get in the car which was a CD that we just always kept in the car and album and we had actually purchased the CD and I remember carpooling with kindergarten and first graders and they would seeing Devin Brittany Nathan Michael and Zachary see but naming five of my favorite artists Oh so hard to do but since I said I would I will and number one I'm going to go in Syria thanks to the public library the lovely building that houses all this art for free which is the best price for young families who have more toddler showing it just happened to be in New York and I was so looking forward to seeing it and it ended like two weeks before we got there.

If you want to know my favorite album uh-huh their kids album which is called kids stuff it's called kids stuff I think it has a picture of a rubber ducky on the front and then their Christmas album creating a beautiful piece of music that soothed and healed my heart during a tender time K. number you would call it a playlist now it wasn't a playlist then I actually created a CD from different songs that had been soothing and healing her she's lovely and get this Richard Marx yes Richard Marx of right here waiting for you fame I'll be right I bet you did not know that Richard Marx wrote fly me up to where you are so my thanks Josh Grobian Linda Thompson Richard Marx for performing and creating an I love it and this is not a kickback like I don't get any promotion they don't even know that I'm talking about them they probably don't even remember me if it's padded but that was the best gift that I could think of to give to people who had lost someone and I need to mention that asides that just make them so fun voicemail love voicemail and number four I'm gonNA lumped together the piano guys me when I experienced grief and I would give that to people instead of giving flowers or when I gave them a card I would give them this. CD Lund's their jingles one is so good and their jingles to they have a wonderful sacred music acapella hymn arrangements and if you ever get a chance because they're six men not mail like you send a letter voicemail hilarious and what I love about them is that the and Lindsey stirling I remember seeing a flyer out at Thanksgiving point in Lehi Utah Advertising concert given by John Waterfall there in front of the actual waterfall at Thanksgiving point and such a similar thing happened with Lindsey stirling she just perform I've been doing this for twenty plus years now I know how they are because they're my age they're getting old because they're my age they all getting a thirty dollar ticket and I'm really sad about that about missing my chance there especially to see John Schmidt perform his piano number this Josh Grobian performed the song but do you know who composed the Song Linda Thompson who I know nothing about but I'm I see them perform in concert it is their humor it's their witty interaction with each other and their sarcastic see now that I think about it that was probably illegal probably broke copyright laws I'm so sorry come arrest me I actually could use some time alone in quiet sell best and they are so great if you've never heard of them go to their website voice mail it's mail m. a. l. e. mail like Schmidt and it was something like thirty dollars a ticket and it was outdoors in their gardens which are beautiful at Thanksgiving point and I remember wanting to go but I had something that we can and so I couldn't go fast forward to now and the piano guys sell out stadiums you couldn't dream named at any local venue that she could perform in and in both cases it would have been so easy for these groups to not here waiting for you ever an Halama heartbreaks we'll be right here waiting for you yes that's the one pursued their art really it wasn't practical what they were doing they certainly weren't mainstream either one of them the piano guys were doing class AH good enough violinist to go big time I mean that would be pretty easy to believe and that her act wasn't strong enough to be a solo act geico music I mean who pays money for classical music right and Lindsey stirling was told by the GT judges that she make it work they knew they probably weren't going to get a major record label so every morning I listen to Lindsey stirling and the piano guys repave I'm going to have to go with this this is a group favorite this is voice mail do you know voicemail this is an occupied but I'm so glad they didn't I'm so glad he didn't quit I'm glad that they didn't listen to the feedback and that they did what they figured out a way to on my morning Yoga play list and I'm so thankful for their work their perseverance I'm so grateful that they thought through all of the self doubt their music in their talents be aside Gingrich's find as well too I I love people that do are as side gigs have unique to offer the world number five last and certainly not least is Alba Redan listen I listened to lindsays violent her energetic violin and I listened to the piano guys I listen to their pirates of the Caribbean arrangement and it really don't give up your day job and I think it would have been so easy for them to not give up their day job and to just have there an episode about that exact thing about buying your ten cassette tapes for ninety nine cents and then how he goes on to cheat the system I can leftover Abba songs now I'm an Aba fan and even I was thinking when the sequel came out what songs didn't so that was getting the Aba tapes in the mail plane them rewinding them reminding them to my favourite track over and over and over the soundtrack of my childhood not because I owned any of their cassette tapes but because my oldest brother did and if you will genius took completely unrelated series of songs and created a story line that became the musical Mamma Mia on Broadway then the unbelievable genius to get a Prequel to Mama Mia using out as well as the public doubt and everything that they had to go through to bring their art into the world and I am daily beneficiary of it again when my brother wasn't home because he didn't know that I was sneaking into his bedroom and listening to his Abba music then fast forward years later and some g little slutty here a young girl with back toback sleepovers and three possible fathers and you can absolutely judge me prudish here but the story sounded a little too loose yes I am talking about Abba that nineteen seventy's Swedish rock group I'm a child of the nineteen eighties an Abba was absolutely no but both of the groups have shown me that becoming an artist is becoming more of who you are and tapping into what you have tear Abba songs and once I saw the movie I absolutely had to agree so Abbott and the Mama Mia movies so of course my oldest brother went to the musical and when he told me what the plot line was I actually thought it sounded kind of scandal as you know that she needed to hook up with a group to be part

Legends season seven is called Ascension and respawn entertainment has finally revealed the first details on it. The games upcoming season will be the biggest of the year with a new map a new Legend and even a vehicle off. The largest change that Ascension will bring is the addition of a new map called Olympus and according to the seasons teaser website Olympus is a giant City in the clouds, but it's high Auto makes it precarious to navigate home. Since it's a long form if you make the wrong jump while that's the only tease we have in the map so far. We spawn says they don't have water available as we get closer to the season launch season 7 of new characters name is Horizon wage used for the last several days Horizon is a brilliant scientist who sure to bring out all of the experimental astrophysics expertise to the Apex games. She's already used a black hole in the stories of the outlands video games and that could potentially be part of a kid by the time she makes it Apex Legends the Ascension preview site also has something extra surprising on it something called the Trident and this is apparently a new addition to the game, especially for Olympus. There's a brief description of the Trident on the website, which offers more clothes to Olympus is a big place the site reads cover ground faster with the Trident plenty of room for the whole school. In other words. It seems like a driveable vehicle may be headed to Apex Legends as part of season seven, but just like the Olympus preview itself may have to wait until respawn has a little bit more to say about Season before we know any real details Apex Legends season 7 is set to arrive on November 4th the same day the game Launches on Steam next step in the news God of War on PS5 thousands up to sixty frames per second and progress carries over from PS4.

Whereas the PS4 Pro 2 options are available. You got checkerboard 4K mode, which does a good job of holding a steady 30 frames-per-second in life scenes and a performance orientated mode at full HD resolution with an unlocked frame rate. According to digital foundries. God of War analysis a stable 60 frames per second is off the table. And the frame rate is left around wild instead with noticeable Jetta what this mode basically delivers is something more in line with say God of War 3 or Ascension on PS3 the frame rate averages mid-to-upper 40s, most of the time during any Skirmish while some of the quieter moments can jump up to or around 60 frames-per-second and hopefully God of War on a PS5 is an offer a more stable 60,000 the second experience.

The next generation of gaming is less than a month away and Ubisoft is the latest company to detail how they're going to be optimizing some of their new games on the horizon with a dog. The scooping up an Xbox here is X or PS5 here are some of the ways that ubisoft's lineup will appeal to those looking forward to a next generation of tech. Let's break it down by gain Thursday. We got Watchdogs Legion and you can't take down an entire government regime without some cool next-gen features for Xbox fans players were able to utilize accelerated rate racing technology for standing vigil in the city of London real-time Reflections in the water resurfaces and smoother in-game traversal. Thanks to Xbox direct storage. Everything is meant to be faster crisper and more realistic which is same PlayStation fans have to look forward to as well on the PS5 rate racing or offer a similar experience to that as the Xbox series X and s in addition to the Tempest 3D audio engine. There's mentors need the games Auditorium ocean too unreal levels faster loading times quicker fast travel and adaptive triggers puts the Journey of Revolution right into the players hands next up. We got Assassin's Creed. How an Xbox players can expect a 4K 60fps experience when fighting through the latest Assassin's Creed Tail as a viking the Xbox velocity architecture and direct storage API off on both series systems also allow for faster loading times which makes for a smoother time to start to finish PlayStation 5 can expect that a 4K 60fps pull as well.

What we do know is the latest in the franchise will benefit greatly from a next-gen boost for both Xbox and Playstation players can expect depends per second at 4K though. It doesn't look like PS5 Tempest audio tech will be too much of an influence for this title. And finally we've got a mortal's Phoenix Rising formally known as God Monsters Immortals Phoenix Rising is a really enjoyable game that basically feels like a fusion between Legend of Zelda breath of the wild and Assassin's Creed while less realistic than other games on the list.

Unsung Economists #1: Sadie Alexander
"Sadie? Alexander was the first African American economist she received her PHD Nekunam IX from the university of Pennsylvania in nineteen twenty one. But because of a race nobody would hire her as an economist. So a few years later, she got her LA degree and went on to have a lustrous career as a civil rights lawyer Bucknell university professor Nina banks has been researching the career in life of Sadie Alexander for almost two decades. And she's working on a pair of books about Sadie Alexander. But economists have not been really focused on her work because of the I think the the belief that when she wasn't able to practice economics that she really stopped focusing much on ecconomic issues, but I really found that that wasn't the case that for forty years, at least she was giving speeches around the country and all of those speeches dealt with issues that that dealt with the status of African Americans. So we don't have recordings of those speeches. But we do have the transcripts and in those speeches Sadie Alexander had fascinating things to say not just about issues that were relevant during her time. But about issues that still matter now, this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith. I'm caught of Garcia today on the show. Our first episode of series in which we shine a new light on an economist from the past an economist contributions. We think deserve another look I up Sadie Alexander.

Businesses were letting workers go the year before that speech. President Franklin D Roosevelt had given a famous speech of his own in which the president had argued for a second Bill of rights and one of those rights would be the right to employment for anyone who is willing and able to get a job. In other words that the economy should propential- be at full employment where anyone who wants to work can find work. This would alleviate the economic insecurity of those marginal workers constantly wondering if they were about to be unemployed. Now, it was already understood at the time that win the economy is at full employment workers get paid more. Because when everyone who wants a job can get one then companies have to compete with each other to attract and hire workers and also to keep their own workers from leaving them for another job and the companies compete with each other by offering better wages and working conditions to workers city Alexander's early. Distinct contribution economics was her argument that full employment was also absolutely necessary. For achieving racial equality. So Sadie Alexander believed that having a fully employed labor force would increase workers pay and they're purchasing power. But of course, this could not occur. If whites continued to exclude black workers from having the right to work, so Sadie Alexander said that full employment was quote, the only solution to the economic subjugation of the negro and of the great masses of white labor. Obviously Sadie Alexander was speaking during a time in which segregation was both legally and informally embedded across American society, American institutions, and that segregation extended to the labor market in which many white workers viewed block workers as rivals as competitors for jobs. CD Alexander made the argument that in order to get rid of economic, insecurity, the whole working class people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds were in it together that they would all benefit from an economy at full employment, and that full employment could not be defined as just. Full employment for white workers. It had to include everyone because let's say that white workers were full employment. But black workers were not then not only with the black workers experienced the hardships of unemployment, but also white workers might continue to see unemployed black workers as threat to their jobs. So if everyone who wanted a job had a job there might be less suspicion between workers of different races, which would make it more likely that the white working class and the black working class would work together to bargain for better, wages and working conditions. Another part of CD Alexander's argument win the economy is not at full employment and therefore businesses don't have to pay higher wages than the owners of businesses can keep more of the profits for themselves at least in the short term. But need a Bank says Sadie Alexandra argued that this eventually leads to rising inequality and will become a big problem for the whole economy because if you exclude a big class of workers from having jobs, it means there are fewer people earning the money to buy the goods that were made by those businesses in the first place. Which again eventually could lead to an economic downturn. But you could prevent that outcome by increasing the earnings power of all workers. And again, that's what happens when the economy is at full employment. And then finally Sadie Alexander argued that full employment would free people from material want from deprivation or starvation or from a lack of basic needs. And so they would then also be free to pursue higher goals to realize their potential professionally and personally, and that would make it less likely that workers would become disillusioned with the government itself or with democracy, and like president Roosevelt Sadie Alexander feared that economic insecurity would result in quote, men and women who have lost hope demanding a dictator to take over the reins of government Sadie. Alexander was not a socialist. She believed in regulated capitalism says Nida banks, but she did also believe that the government had an active role to play in a cheerful employment for the economy when the private sector couldn't do that by itself. She. Envisioned a public work programme that addressed pressing needs that would enhance people's well-being she focused on improving housing conditions in urban slums or providing electricity to every form she talked about reducing illiteracy, reducing hunger and making sure that people were properly clothed. That's typically not what we think about today when we focus on public works as part of this goal of cheating full employment for the economy Sadie. Alexander also argued that the government should guarantee a job to people who would want one and professor banks believes that Sadie Alexander might even have been the first economist to make that case. In fact, a national jobs guarantee is a policy idea that is being hotly debated right now something else that communists are debating right now is the question of whether the economy is in fact at full employment, and there is obviously no way to know for sure how Sadie Alexander would answer that question. But here's what we can say the labor market has improved. A lot in recent years and the unemployment rate for black or African Americans has mostly been falling during that time. But at six point eight percent, it is almost twice as high as the unemployment rate for white Americans, which is only three point five percent. And according to the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank, a black worker with the same education as a white worker is only getting paid roughly eighty percent as much as the white worker, and that applies at every educational level, and that wage gap is bigger now than it was back in the year two thousand it. Of course, it isn't just in the economy where there still exist big racial disparities. Another place is in the very disciplined that Sadie Alexander tried to enter nearly a hundred years ago economics to see this. You just have to look at the numbers numbers that Anna Gifty Poku Osman senior at the university of Maryland knows really well, so basically in between two fifteen to sixteen five out of one thousand one hundred and fifty eight doctoral degrees and economics where worth of black women. So that's. Less than half of one percent. One half of one percent. The numbers for black men. Earning PHD's and for black undergraduate economics degrees are only slightly better. But in is trying to do something about this. She co founded the CD collective in organization that wants to create a better environment for black women to go into economics and this weekend. The Sadie collective is hosting the inaugural Sadie TM Alexander conference for economics. Anna says that it just felt natural to Namie organization and the conference after Sadie Alexander, we she was very interested in economic equality in advocating for marginalized groups is so we felt that that was in line with our overall mission sort of equalizing the playing field by giving black women the same opportunities that we've been seeing other people received in the field the conference is sold out which along with the papers and the upcoming books from Nina banks suggests that the legacy work and speeches of Sadie Alexander which had been forgotten for so long. 'economics might soon. Find a new and growing audience. This episode of the indicator was produced by Constanza yard, oh, edited by paddy Hirsch, and our intern is will of Ruben indicator is a production of NPR.
Talking Adversarial Interoperability with the Firewalls Dont Stop Dragons podcast (Part I)
"Hello everybody welcome back to firewalls. Don't stop dragons. I'm your host Garry Parker and we have got promised interview with Corey Doctor. Today and actually it's going to be a two part interview is kind of long so I thought I'd just split it up and if you remember. We had corey on the show before It's been quite some time. However so you you'd have been a longtime listener to remember that Has a very interesting background. As I introduced him you'll see just a few of the things that he's managed to get himself involved in But I I learned about him years ago When I was looking some copyright stuff. He's been an activist fighting for copper formed for quite a while and he's also part of the Electronic Frontier Foundation which I've mentioned many times on the show and he has written many many books actually in one of his books. I have recommended as well talk about that at the end of the show when he was on the show last time we discussed the topic of digital rights management or d. r. m. and that is the technology in broad terms that forces you to use certain devices to play certain content or to not be able to play certain content on other devices. Meaning like if you bought an move from itunes or whatever and you digitally bought the digital copy of that you can only play that on the apple the apple. Tv or whatever your Apple Devices. It's wrapped in DRM. Meaning that it's you've got to authenticate yourself to the system and only approved devices can play that content. It used to be that music was drm. Didn't it was really actually brought about napster. As far as I'm concerned back way back in the day because you know you bought something you want to own it and and so you get this file music. File you downloaded. You can only play on apple devices and this will honestly. This really is not wasn't apples. Call in that case. They actually didn't want to have the DRMS THERE. But all the the music companies that license their stuff insisted upon it and eventually after enough. I guess after enough piracy Steve Jobs. I think kind of convinced them to see the light and they dropped it and the funny thing is now that most people don't buy music anymore anyway not even digital copies they rent the music streaming services like spotify or apple music or Amazon Prime Has Music as well so instantly gives you access to their entire catalog but once you stop paying you have nothing or if that company or that service goes out of business for whatever reason it's gone comical fashion but I like to own like to own what I buy. I still have all my. Cd's from years ago the kind of Mothball. They put them in these little crates. But you know worst comes doors. I have all that music anyway. That's what we talked about last time of Corey This time we're going to take to a slightly different level and I was reading this article about Sonos and that's a company that makes smart speakers. They're very popular. He may not have heard of them but You take these things and they're not cheap and there. There's a few different lines you. Can you know pay more or less? But you know it's over one hundred bucks a piece for sure sometimes multiple hundreds you buy these speakers. This is really good. You put them anywhere in your house. You Hook them up to an APP. You get them on your Wifi network and now you can play music from your phone or wherever piped to these devices anywhere in your house and you can connect them together to get stereo or Just listened to the same song throughout the house. There's all sorts of cool stuff. You can do it but this is an internet of things devices. They are connected to the Internet. They need to be connected to the Internet to work. Now when I say need I don't mean technically need they could function just fine as a Bluetooth speaker or even just a regular plugger Jack in kind of speaker but they don't partially because we've we've come to this sort of subscription based mentality for everything and these devices are wholly dependent upon the Internet service that they are trying to and then I'm not only give away the whole story but that's where things start and I read an article about this and soon as I read that. Are you know what I really need to bring corey? Dr Into talked about this. He would be perfect and he was so a really interesting interview nap before we get into it. Of course been doing this. A long time and He he rattled off some terms some technical or legal marketing terms. He kind of rattles off very easily. Because I'm sure they in day out he's terms all the time. It's like me when you start talking too much about computer engineering or software. I can cycle. Let loose some of these terms to a layman wooden so before you get into it. I KINDA WANNA do. Little glossary read through some of the terms. You might hear just to prepare you for when you do here. Because we don't really stop to define them Some of these. We've talked about before but I just just to make absolutely sure. We refer to choreographers to firmware a lot as we go through this and all firmware as it software but it's kind of software for like an embedded device any things device today has software running on which we actually comes up in our discussion. And when you when you have software that's kind of on a embedded device like a little appliance a little internet things device. We tend to call firmware as instead of just generic software. He also talks about breaking device. This is sort of a hacker or computer term when you take something fully functional and through a software change make it nonfunctional basically making it as useful as a brick and sometime. This is intentional. And sometimes it's not again. We're GONNA talk about this with Corey today now. Another term he runs a legal term. And I admit I had to look this up myself so Just to keep up just read. The the wikipedia entry visits tortuous. Interference also notice intentional interference with contractual relations in the common law. Torts you might have heard of. Tort Law Occurs. When one person intentionally damages someone else's contractual business relationships with a third party causing economic harm as an example someone who's blackmail to induce a contractor into breaking a contract or they could obstruct someone's ability to honor a contract with the client by deliberately refusing to deliver necessary goods so that would be tortous interference. He makes a passing reference to a PD. One that's an old old computer Something from the Gosh seventies at least talks about API's or application programming interfaces. Which I've talked to you about before. It's just kind of the way computers. Talk to each other Rom read only memory. That's really old term. But you probably haven't heard that one much lately that's Lille mentioned roms a couple of times Then it's on. It's really into marketing terms which I had to look these up as well I. I've heard them before. I kind of knew what they were but I got a little more context when I looked up these marketing terms or economic terms. One of them's data moat data moat first mover and network effects. So these are kind of what they're really kind of mean as that's how one company can kind of dominate a particular product or or area of a certain market so data moat is the situation? Where kind of like a Google is kind of it. Now where they have amassed so much data and data so intrinsic to the value of the services that they offer that nobody could catch up at or it's really really hard to catch up So the the idea I think Warren Buffett was the one who kind of coined the use of the word Moat in. The sense is a kind of surrounded. Your business a mixture business hard to assail and makes it hard for someone else to come along and replace you in more data in this case? You have the Whitey remote. It's harder for someone to metaphorically you know. Take over Your Business. I over is pretty much what it sounds like. This is the kind of case where somebody comes onto the market and dominates early on. It may not be the very very first person to come to the market but at somebody who basically came in and immediately took the lead and were so far ahead that by virtue of that kind of hard to catch you know maybe facebook might be an example of that. They weren't the first. My space was around friendster and some others but no one remembers those anymore because facebook came in hard and strong and basically nose catch him censors. Nothing else like facebook out there and then network effect which also applies to things like facebook. And what's APP and that is in these proprietary systems the more users you have the heart is for someone to come along and take your place and that's really where facebook is right. I mean it's not the facebook really that great but that's where everybody is so you can't really you know how do you compete with that? And there are ways by the way Data portability would be one of them. We're basically force facebook to give away to export all of your data and imported some of their service. But that's we don't have those laws yet. He mentioned the I triple e. Which is the Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineers? Which I was a member of actually electrical engineer by degree. I was part of Tripoli back in the day there. They put out a lot of publications to do a lot of journal stuff but they also act as a standards body for a lot of Electronic Standards and just one more a two more maybe He talks about Lennox busy box. Lennox is an operating system. That is kind of a free and open operating system. That has many different flavors. Busy boxes. One that's used often firmware So he makes a passing reference to that and he talks about get hub a couple of times get a source code management system when I use. It's extremely popular today for software and get hub is a very popular website service That offers ways for you to basically store your code your software code in such a way that you could share with others or not can collaborate or not but it also keeps track of the entire history so you can see every change it was ever made and go back to a previous one if you need to or whatever so okay. So that's that's a lot of germs that you're probably not gonna even remember this point. Maybe they'll stick in your brain because we do big some passing references to these things as we go and let's not wait any longer. Let's let's get away from the drudgery of the glossary in dive right into this interview with Corey doctrine doctor who was a science fiction author activist journalist and blogger. He's author of several novels including homeland a little brother and walk away and if that wasn't enough he's the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and CO founded the UK Open rights group saw Combat Corey. Thank you very much pleasure. It'd be back on when you were here. Last time we talked about. Dsm and Detroit's management. And how the kind of thing. We're talking about the time and so we don't own anything we buy quote unquote by movies or by music and and and we really don't own these things like we used to when we bought. Cds and so maybe they just read this article about Vice magazine about how Sonos has which is a maker of One of the most popular smart speakers basically giving people made him in mid struck me a that. They're basically now. Doing this was hardware as well as with these kind of digital devices and be. You're the perfect person to talk to you about this so Thanks for coming on the show so if you would let's start with that we've got a lot. There's not the first and the last time this will happen. We'll talk about some of the others. But since this sparked the whole thing that tell us a little bit about Sonos and what happened there. Sure well Sonos as you say. Makes me smarts because we actually have some of in our house at a This year rolled out a smart speaker. That isn't smart. It doesn't have any microphones in it. And that was the deal breaker. They kept us from buying them and so now that they've they've rolled out a microphone. Free Speaker That was enough for us to get them and they're pretty good package. No well integrated. They've been around for a long time and they have a bunch of firmware challenges so some of those challenges just keeping up with modern network issues and You know adding new services as they come aboard they have a funny model which is at as far as I can. Work out the firmware. For the Sonos that is to say the actual speaker itself has clients for all the major streamers Amazon Google Bonafide Tra and you using your phone authenticate to the service and then your phone transmits the authentication token to the speaker. The speaker laws into the service and then get some music. You're allowed to hear and so you know they have to add. Services is they come on board and they also have to. I'm guessing here but I pretty solid gas. I think they have to be able to make assurances to the people who run the services that they will enforce whatever use restriction policies with those so that would be digital rights management wrapping. Around last time. We talked so you know Google and Amazon and the rest of them they have varying deals with the labels and sometimes those deals are it. Seems like the label is forcing them but it turns out. They're forcing the label You know I especially in the case of Amazon. This funny situation where Amazon dominates a few of the audio markets particularly they dominate audible and audio ninety percent of the audiobook marquette and when they launched part of their proposition to the audio publishers. We will enforce use restriction rules on your audio books by wrapping them in our proprietary around and then as audio publishers started to say. Hey We've noticed that when you wrap our audio books in your drm locks them to your platform which means that if we have a dispute with with you and we leave our customers can't take audiobook and go to a hypo and that might be a really bad deal for us. Can we choose to not have the on? Our Audio Amazon said never never know It is a part and parcel right you. You are non lead so mind your time. Especially novels are available as audiobooks not on Amazon which is a anything. Because I won't let them lock my books to their platform so I think. In some cases those labels have deals with the with the streamers that that they're driving and in some cases the streamers driving them because they wanNA lock Customers of the streamers to the platform rather than allowing them to switch to a rival they wanna increase the switching costs and in some cases. It might be about right. It might be that the Label thinks that they have forced the streamer into adding the Ram and the streamer is like. Oh well thank you very much for throwing me in that Briar Patch. Now all of your customers belong to me forever. So that adds up to kind of challenge for the Sonos Speaker Worlds and they have to devote a fair bit of resource to keeping their firmer up-to-date and they just decided one day that They weren't gonNA try and continued. Update the The old speakers that they were going to end of life them and you know not uncommon there lots of end of devices in the world. The differences that these devices are tethered. And they are also authenticated by the other devices that share network with them so they don't work unless they're constantly in touch with US owner servers. So it's not like you end of life you know it's not like if Ford ups making parts for your engine. Your engine doesn't phone. Ford and get told nowhere parts for you and the cards are shut itself off and and then in addition these speakers are meant to work together so that is very clever or if you participate in a room you press one. That's my last week. Printing press the button on the other and you say my right speaker and it goes. We are now stereo. Paired super cool. We got that in our living room. And they've what they've done is they said the new speakers if you try to integrate them into a network with the old speakers will refuse to work so this is also very different. You know the the Ford in in your driveway doesn't care if you buy some new Ford floor mats or a New Ford Stereo and install it in your car it all just it all just works. They don't get a looking at the end of life your speakers that way. And and so the presence of the D. R. M. creates a bunch of problems here Most notably that writing an alternative firmware for these. Which is the thing that people do just like people make parts for cars that have been into leist and so on writing alternative for for these speakers. involves bypassing the D. Ram and impersonating the drm to all the streaming services and that is a felony under section of the digital in the copyright act punishable by. I've your prison sentence and a five hundred thousand dollars fine for first defense. So that's that's a really big barrier writer. Unlikely that will they're pretty firmer. There is another huge problem that is separate from the DRMS. Your or. I guess ten generally related. Which is that. Sonos is official advice for people who are getting rid of their sooner speakers is to Put them in. What's called recycling mode and recycling mode? Bricks speak so it can never be used again and it has to be com- e- waste. It is the opposite of recycling. Is it Turning it into toxic waste and of course this prevents people from buying and selling us sonos devices and their official advices. That if you don't want your network loggins and your service loggins to walk out your door when you throw away your speaker that you have to breakfast so It's entirely possible. That recyclers could undo this mischief right that they could get a brick device and insult us. They're pretty firmware on it or D. bracket or restore the factory software to but doing that would be several kinds of potential legal offense. I Their Digital Copyright Act section twelve. O One offense. There's possibly the computer fraud and abuse act because you'd be connecting to remote servers and exceeding your authorization which is also a felony eventually under a nineteen eighty. Six Law that Ronald Reagan signed into power or signed into effect after Freaking out after watching wargames. We'll thing you could also be engaged in torture interference. You might have a patent violation or to You might miss appropriate trade secret on the way. So all of those things mean that the references of sonos shareholders as befits the disposition of their used equipment cake on the force of law and that is able to weave around their products this legal framework that amounts to felony contempt of business model statute that. Congress never passed but nevertheless makes it a literal crime to fail to arrange your affairs in ways that their shareholders would prefer so. It'd be clear so the two options you can say. Well you could just like you kind of alluded this you keep using the ones you have but they will never get suffer updates. It will never work with new devices. They will not play Nice together. That's your call other option. Turn on this twenty one day brick mode and then they happily let you turn that into them. For a thirty percent discount on new devices and then those those those brick devices end up in a landfill leaching into our drinking water or Sent to a developing nation where child labourers will work over assets to recover the conflict minerals and other usable Raw materials out of them and the speakers. I forget this article one of the other ones I read about the speakers on one of the most notoriously long lived electronic products and these things last forever. I mean the speaker itself. I mean the. There's no reason to bring this thing after five years. Oh yeah no I mean. When I was a kid I inherited stereo speakers for my uncle. You know when he had a basement crash pat as a teenager in the sixties or seventies that we're you know the size of About the two of them together was about half as big as our Volkswagen Beetle. You know they could. They could make your fillings rattle and they weren't some of those do from that point And I'm sure they're still working wherever they ended up. I lost several months ago. And you know that is completely normal to have Extremely long lives speakers. So there's there's there's nothing about the component nor is there anything intrinsic about the electronic software components intrinsically ephemeral. You know I was just at the Computer History Museum where I got to sit at the console for running. Pt One. You know so there is. There is anyone who tells you that that this is an historic inevitability rather than calculated. Commercial Strategy is talking out of there but and this is. This is really true. Almost all of the Internet of things thing today because all these Internet of things devices are smart. But they're only smart when they're connected to the Internet for the most part and that's that's not a you know part of that's part of that's because they say well you know we don't have the resources on the device so we have to send these queries like an Amazon Echo. Here's your voice and they send the snipe into the car because there's not enough processing on the device we couldn't keep all these voice snippets so the so the Internet is there. But so what's happened though because of these that these devices are now totally in the control of these services and these services. Go Away if the company has bought and shut down or are bought by rival. I like what happened with NAST. And this revolved product it. They're they're useless or and and or they can be completely changed and how you can use them without you. Having done anything different yeah. I think that it's really like we're starting to get into this idea that I call adversarial interoperability here. I think that's where petted and I think it's important as we as we head into this to talk about the floor and the ceiling on the way that these products work so the floor would be defined by something like Consumer Protection Statutes for example and in California. I believe manufacturers have to provide parts for their equipment after for seven years. So you know if you get a six year old powerbook and you'd think Mac Book and You bring it to a service depot in Oregon or Washington state. They might say. I'm sorry. There are no parts for this. But if you go to the State Line into California there'd be like all right well except for you so that you know there are lots and lots of consumer protection laws and regulations that define a floor on interoperability. We might in fact have a thing that says if I buy device from you. Notwithstanding whatever was in the click through agreement you're not allowed to Brick it you know if you're still in business like unless you declare bankruptcy than you have to continue sport this product for a certain number of years and keep the servers alive and that it's not sufficient to do something like you know. This is the thing that keeps coming up with the media where like Microsoft and other companies have said. Oh we're shutting down this like drm server that we run For our bookstore. Because we've decided not let you have a not not to do that store anymore because you know it wasn't very profitable so we're just GonNa take away all your e books but don't worry we'll give you a refund right and I was a bookseller for a long time between bookseller. And no matter what happened I never got to go over to your house and take books back. Not even if I left the money that you've given me in the first place right so so we might say as a contractual matter. Mike if you'RE GONNA if you're GonNa make me click through a thing that says I agree in perpetuity. But I'm in a disagreement might fit as a contractual matter that you agree in perpetuity that you will hold up your end of the bargain too and you know what might be good versions of that rule and bad versions that will depending on how it's crafted and who captures and what kind of loopholes that might have and you know whether or not it makes it impossible for example to offer free and open source software like a cooperative because you would have to guarantee the you'd be in business forever. I might endorse one or more of those rules. That would the floor. But then there's a feeling and the ceiling historically has been defined by competitors and ingenuity historically competitors who saw a company engaged in conduct that their customers did not like that that was that they knew the customers like the product but not some element or aspect of it. Like maybe the printer. It costs too much or maybe you know to. They couldn't overclock processors because they they came with a little luck on them or whatever competitors would enter the marketplace and say hey I know you like this product and it seems like it's a take it or leave a deal like you gotta take the bad with the good with whatever the original manufacturers offer to but I tell you what you buy my thing and plug it into their thing and you got all the benefits of their product and none of the downside. Aren't going to pick up the downsides and what that did in addition to liberate and consumers from the You know dictatorial. Judgment of vendors. Is it also disciplined? The firms themselves. Right like there was in the boardroom in the product design meeting always this calculus. Like how badly and we'd screw over our customer before a competitor goes I'll take that market and and so we had this equillibrium that emerged not just from law and not just from bad publicity from the possibility that you just end up losing your market share so you know for example When I was a division of IBM they sued a little. I think they're Taiwanese company called static controls over refilling their toner. They lost a lawsuit. Well let's mark is now a division of static controls so that was. That was the thing that you had to watch out for that you might create the market that the company that put you out of business would enter right that they would go Hot there is my opportunity. You Know Sun microsystems used to this up and down the block. I used to be an SGI integrator Silicon graphics like the most proprietary of all the UNIX. And like we would make a thing and we'd have some element of our business model where you would have to pay extra to get something else or some other. You know You know chicanery and that would just come in and go. Yeah now we've got this product that you can put in your network and he does all the things that you can't do. It might do not. It might not do the things asked you can do. But like buying our thing and the STI boxes cheaper than buying the STI box and then paying for all the upgrade. You'll get everything you need so this this made the market really vibrant because companies like you know Phoenix Computers. Right so phoenix computers. Is this tiny little startup. That had this guy working for them name Tom Jennings. Tom Is probably best known today. For being the guy who created FidoNet which was like an early Devia can recall and Tom's like a hardware wizard and When IBM did the PC they published a SPEC for they're wrong and Tom sat down our manual for their. I'm looking. Api At book. I've got a picture of it. In my flicker feet at Tom's copy of it and he sat down and he went through that book and he wrote a SPEC for a new wrong that was compatible with. Ibm's wrong and then they hired some Texas instruments programmers who'd never touched. Intel processor and no one could claim we're copying Intel code and they had them re implement the IBM ROM as a third party wrong and then Phoenix put into business. A bunch of companies are pretty familiar these days Dell Gateway Com every PC clone had a phoenix. Raw Minute Right. That was the normal course of action in those days and it meant that firms had a hard time cornering the market when they did corner the market they were not a kind of You know unbudgeted giant. Who you'd be a fool to go up against instead. They were thought of like kind of slow moving lucky fool who Had had you know through their own greed and lack of competitive edge had corralled in one place all of the customers that you wanted to steal from them and giving you a thing to sell them you know like the. I don't know if you remember that that Daffy duck cartoon where he's a traveling salesman and he's trying to sell something to this bank robbers hold up in a house and keeps trying to sell you something and eventually blows the house up in their like sailing through. The air is holding onto the DOORKNOB that he was about to turn to try and get into the house again. Offered something does Mac. I know what you need. You need a house to go with this door now. What the what the giants did was they made. Houses to go with other people's doorknobs. And eventually you could bootstrap that into a house selling business and so you know. That was the natural order of things. So how did we get here because today the Internet is five giant website? Silver screen shots of the other four and and and the companies that dominate that space as the other tech spaces. They tell you a week off this way because of network effects and first mover advantage and because we have data moats you know we have so much data that you could never compete with us. As though knowing that I bought a fridge fifteen years ago help you tell me anything today. Right and another way of thinking about that claim that its first mover affects and that its network effects and that it's Data emotes is that you shouldn't even bother to try and make them competitive because they're not anti competitive because the executives did some anti competitive stuff there Not Competitive because this natural effect emerged from the market and nothing we do or say could ever stop that effect from emerging no matter what interventions we made. If it's like when Margaret Thatcher said. There is no alternative. What she really meant was off trying to think of an alternative right when they say that. Were good facts that are like just. Don't even bother. You know this is we. This is the future the Internet. It used to be chaotic. Now it has stabilized five John Companies. Get used to it. If you WANNA make us better regulate us like like Mark Zuckerberg said last year. Give me tell me what the rules are. And of course the rules that they want our rules that only the largest companies can afford to comply with what that means is that they perpetuate their dominance back playing with something like the Copyright Directive in Europe. That says everyone has to have a filter like content. Id that filters everything their users post to check and make sure it doesn't infringe copyright and it's going to cost hundreds of millions of dollars and then only a handful of big US companies can afford hundreds of millions of dollars for them is a very cheap price for perpetual Internet domination license. But it's a big enough cost that no one else can enter the market. So how do these companies get so dominant and thank you for your patience as I rant about? The company's got so dominant because the ladders that they used to climb to the talk. They pulled up behind them. Those ladders were adversarial interoperability. When apple was fighting Microsoft the reverse engineered the office suite and released. I work when facebook was fighting my space. They made tools to log into my space and get your waiting my space messages and import them into facebook. So that you wouldn't you wouldn't have to wait for all your my stays friends to join you on facebook before facebook become useful. Every one of these companies got their start through adversarial interoperability. Google started by pretending to be a web browser and visiting every page on the Internet. Giant database and every one of them has encouraged passage of laws and regulations and the creation of novel courts Judgements that embrace new theories of law. I've existing law that. Make all the things that they did illegal and so they want you to think that it's network affects what it really is is kicking the ladder away so that no one else up right in. So this is a common thing. I see with all these companies. That the the the upstarts the new guys a small geysers start. Ups are out there pushing really hard for standards. And this is the interoperability. You're talking about because to them. It benefits them. But obviously the incumbents in this case these big tech is you're talking about are all about the proprietary stuff and you're you're right. They're blaming things but it's there's a definite dynamic where it's the the little guy has always clamoring standing so that everybody can interact together and they'll and there's federation and you know everybody can play in this thing where the guys are like none of that would you know. We are the default de facto standard for everybody. And and we're not GonNa let you work with us. Oh yeah or you know. The other thing that they like is standardizing as a way of creating competitive moat. So after the two thousand election cycle Where the voting machine failures made it unclear who had been elected president. There was a directive to standardize voting machines and the voting machine vendors led by debold went to the I triple e. And they said we're here to standardize voting machines. Tripoli's said well. That sounds like a prestigious thing. Welcome Aboard Charter. Your Committee and then Immediately they said well standard that. We're here to define what we call performance standard or a descriptive standard. Not Not a not a performance standard and that description will be detailed description of all of the products we already sell any product we sell including the ones that blew up the Florida. Mallet count will comply with the standard. And nothing else will right. So that's the standardisation. Their standards and their standards and standards including mandated standards are a great floor on interoperability. But they don't make good ceiling right if if we say okay. The standard is all. I is what you must allow people to implement but you cannot But people cannot do anything that goes beyond the SPEC then you have firms that will arrange their affairs so that they face no competitive challenge from implementation standard. Only from the things around it and they'll orient all of their competitive armor Around the things that are next to the standard instead of in the standard. So you you mentioned log on. I want to dig back into a little bit. Because that's there are several of these examples of what I think of like the razor blade model thing where I make I make the kind of the base thing but then there's something that you've got to constantly replace that. I'm going to sell to you at a high price so I I give you the the platform whatever that is. And then I'm going to charge a lot for the the thing that you need to replace all time. It's sort of a subscription thing and you know Lex Mark was certainly one of those. Ain't cars give basically give you the printer. But I wanNA milk you and have you over a barrel because you have to use my ink you know in perpetuity which GonNa charge you a nominal leg for and that's what these other companies as well. We could make an cards at work but then Donald Kinda got blown away when the DNC came out what you talked about and some of these other kind of legal things that allowed them to protect these things basically with software. I think they even did that. With current cups right. I mean I think even the Kurd cups you think how would you? It's Chata you know. What would you do with that? I think they had some sort of like invisible barcodes or something on your explain what that was all right so so. We need a little bit of legislative history. Here make it all make sense so when the DMC was passed it was billed as a way of fighting copyright infringement but it was also designed to help protect business models even when violating those. Does this pedals. DidN'T VIOLATE COPYRIGHTS? I think. Something like the Sega. Dreamcast right back to the back to the mid nineties. The Sega dreamcast had a business model. That was that they would sell you hardware while necessarily at a discount but but cheaper and Then they would charge independent software vendors to make software for the Sega and they had a little Like SEGA CD detection routine in the dreamcast. And if you burned a SEGA CD and you stuck it in the in the CD drive the Sega would say I'm sorry. This isn't an unofficial SEGA CD so the the software vendors who made SEGA Games had to buy time on SEGA CD presses in order to make their games and SEGA CHARLESTON FOREVER. See they press got paid before a single. Cd was sold and even if the game tank say you got a lot of money now think about it for minute. Say I'm an independent software vendor and I make a video game. That's my copyrighted. Works and sell it to you. Who owns a Sega dreamcast? That is your property. And you play the game on your Sega Console. No copyright infringement has taken place obviously right selling your own copyrighted work to someone who wants it who then goes on to enjoy it on equipment that belongs to them is definitively not a lucky right infringement. Right in the same way that going into a store and say India and buying a DVD for cheaper than a cost in America the official DVD and bringing home to America and watching it is not a copyright infringement paying the rights holder. Exactly THE PRICE. They asked for their copyrighted work. And enjoying it in a way that you are supposed to enjoy it the opposite of copyright infringement but the DMCA's intention was to make it illegal to frustrate these commercial desires and so the law was passed with no exception for people who broke the R. M. But never violated copyright right so in other words if you bypass the region lock on the DVD player but only ever watch DVD's that you had paid for legitimately Fr- that were official copies. The breaking of the lock itself would be a copyright violation. Even though you committed no piracy and what this did was it said that anyone who made a work Omega device that played copyrighted works. Could Felon is any conduct that their shareholders frowned upon? But then a funny thing happened on the way to the twenty first century which is that software appeared in every device. And what you could say. Is that the copyright law that you bypassed. In order to unlock the device was not a lock that protected media in the device it was a law protected the firmware of the device right so that the coffee right work is the devices own operating system not a game not a DVD but the software in the device. So I said lex knock sued Out of controls over Bypassing the DRM on there a toner cartridge wasn't a toner. They were laser printers and That software was at twelve byte program on primitive hip in the Turner Cartridge. That would When the toner ran out it would flip single bit from. Im Foale too. I am empty and then it didn't matter how much carbon you put back. In the toner cartridge it would still say I am empty. And instead of control of her near that twelve program which can't have been very difficult and And and made a chip. That said I'm full when they went to court. The judge said to lex mark. Where's your copyrighted work and let's not said it's at twelve program in the chip and of course it well. Software is copyright about twelve. Bikes is not enough to raise the level of copyright that is not even Haiku Right. And so it's not copyright -able but flat flash forward to today and you have something like an HP printer cartridge with HP HP Subscription Business Model. So HP now sells printers where you have to pay a monthly subscription and no matter how much ink you having your cartridge if you've used up all the pages your subscription provides for that month then. Your printer won't print anymore. They have tens of thousands of lines of code in that device right. They've got a little system on a chip costs about twenty seven cents. It's got Lennox on it. It's got probably an insecure version of busy box on it and and It is assuredly copyrighted work and so now what you have is anyone who's got software and their device only needs to add a one molecule thick layer of drm that you have to scrape off in order to change the software and now doing anything to that device becomes a felony so most recently. The company called Abbott Labs or a giant in the medical device. Feel based in Silicon Valley and They make a continuous glucose. Monitor and continuous glucose monitors are half of what are called close loops or artificial pancreases. These are things that were invented by diabetes for themselves. They would take on an implanted. Insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor writes some software that would read the output from the Glucose Monitor and titrate a dose of insulin. And we're keeping going all around the clock so for one thing you could sleep through the night. Which is the thing that a lot of people? Party's can't do you have to wake up in the morning. Stick yourself in. Check your blood sugar. It you ended up with a much better blood sugar range which you know has long range implications people whose blood sugar is habitually range. Di Really early. It's a major course. Source of early mortality. So that makes this device and outputs data to an APP on your phone and some people with diabetes reverse engineered the APP so that they could extract their own blood sugar data and feed it into an algorithm. That would then directly functioning of their of their insulin pumps and Abbott labs for its own reasons. Maybe it wants to make sure they buy their own Abbott Labs Insulin pumps and you know Johnson and Johnson Applied for and got approval for an insulin. Pump that uses a proprietary cartridge. So that even though the influence selfish commodity you know banting and best invented insulin. One hundred years ago and gave the patent away because they thought it would be rude to charge people with diabetes for access to this lifesaving I- logical. The cartridge can't be refilled right. It's like lex Mart Cartridge except instead of having twelve bytes of code. Got Enough Code that it's a felony to bypass echo to refill it. So they can turn people with diabetes into inkjet printers have to pay premium for the biological that they need they can. They can turn your organ into an object so ABBOTT LABS GOTHA PROJECT TAKEN DOWN. Get up and they they did so on the basis of the DMC twelve one plane and like. Let's just step back here. Review going on data is factual not copy writable but this data is not data that at last create so even if it were caulking right of all it wouldn't be Abbott Labs. Who had the coffee because this is the data that literally came from your blood? You Own your Glucose Monitor. They're not giving those away. So it's your glucose monitor so you WanNa access your copy writable blood sugar data from a device that you paid for and you own and Abbott Labs says. I'm sorry no you're not allowed to write. And that's what felony contempt of business model invites. It's a moral hazard that invites firms to view their customers as a kind of nutrient bath to be absorbed as quickly as possible. An ambulatory wallet as a towel that needs to be melt before someone else gets along and it completely. It turns into the kinds of firms that we used to go after with trust busting law. And it's not because modern. Ceo's are more evil than the CEO's during the years in which adversary interoperability was in place. It's because modern. Ceo's are exactly the same mediocrities that have always run firms with the key difference that no one slaps them upside the head when they overstep the line and so without any breaks in only an accelerator. That system is racing out of control and so ends part one of my Second interview with Corey Doctoral. He's really a fun. Guy. He's a great guy to talk about. These particular topics is so passionate about them. He's been working on these kind of issues for so long you can tell he's got so much experience He was really just the perfect person to bring on this topic so again. He's written many many different books if you go to his main website which I believe is crap hound dot com. You can check out his blog there. You can get some information about Corey and of course you can also see all the books that he's written and there's quite a few and little brothers the one I've That I've read and enjoyed the most I think of ever them all but it's really a good book. It's kind of about dystopia in future kind of thing but it's really not that far off You know we're we're basically one more terrorist attack away from some really draconian surveillance measures and that's kind of what happens in this book and it really goes to show how important things like. Encryption are and having systems where people can reliably communicate without being eavesdropped surveilled. But it's you know that sounds like it's really heavy but it's it's a very good book it's a thriller it's a you know it's well It's a page Turner that you'll you'll like reading but along the way you'll pick up a really interesting knowledge about how some encryption stuff works at how some surveillance stuff works so next week when we finish up the interview we're going to talk about Another related topic is the right to repair and along the same lines of these companies. Coming up with these kind of clever legalistic ways to prevent competition. They have also cornered the market on repairing their devices Apple certainly is one of them. We're GONNA talk about Apple.
