"Of Columbus Georgia is next. Daryl. What are we going to talk about? Basketball? Just wait and see, you may be in for a surprise. I've already heard what this take on football. You don't know what to think about football, Paul. All he knows how to do is bump his gum. You know what I mean? Alabama, Alabama, Nick Saban, Alabama. That's all Stephen a still asking, I asked him about him being wrong in his picture who's going in that title game. I want to hear what he says about that. I also want to hear what he has to say about the two receivers Alabama head out. I've already heard his take on it. I want to hope he's still crying about that also. Stephen, I feel my number to big mouth. He knows basketball, but other than that, that's it. I mean, you know, Paul, I do not understand, I saw Colin coward come out with his little top ten. Having Georgia in it, I mean, I don't get it, Paul, what more are there people still doubting? Are you falling for the cheese? Colin, first of all, callan cowherd doesn't know anything. He's just saying that. People like you to react. But you still lay in the top ten. Oh my goodness. He lives in LA and he's his best friend as Lincoln Riley, and he's just trying to pump up chip Kelly or whatever his name is out there. Well, I'll play his better days long gone the way I look. You made a comment the other day that Alabama was only a quarterback injury away from Georgia and Alabama being on the same playing field. You remember saying that? Vaguely. Okay, well, George could be a quarterback injury away from also Alabama Jordan being on the plane. But he'll play a bill. Could be. I mean, you know, I mean, we do have Brandon Graham. I moved up to the number that are number three. There, Daryl. The Kirby's got the wrong quarterback? Well, no. I'm not going to doubt this in Ben, but I mean, he Paul. Yeah, you are. I mean, we got a 5 star gunslinger up behind him, you know what I mean? I tell you, I tell you that he is. The leafs is the Alabama couple of scrubs back there. I think Alabama had a housing, trophy winning quarterback, the best people to play in college football and still got beat by Kirby smart. It took a three star nosed guard, a walk on quarterback, didn't even have you start barefoot receiver for almost the entire year. Lost his 5 star defensive player after the Florida game and still won a national title. And you know what? I went to George schedule, Paul. I made a hobby straight on it for you. I don't think why we should not be 12 zero in the playoff and anything can happen once you get to the playoffs, right? Let's go back to back and George goes back to back. Anyway, great to hear from me again, Daryl. Jason is in Georgia. Hello, Jason. Hey, Paul, how you doing? Very well. Thank you. I heard you talk about the coaches salaries. $10 million you're extremely limited 10.1 million possibilities are endless. Does legend have you ever met legend in person? Yeah, I've had lunch with legend before, yes. So he does do something besides Ric Flair and the fake laugh. There is something else besides that, right? Yeah, I think legends are a great personality. I've been around in legend a number of times. Okay. Well, when he calls the show, that's all he ever does. If you're that a social gathering, you'd want to go to the other side of the room. If that didn't work, you would try to go out the door. If that didn't work, you would die out the window. Because that is very annoying. And moral GM, he don't know anybody. Everybody he's never met is a fool and a psychopath. But there is one type of parent. That's the one he looks at every day in the mirror. But everybody else he's ever made is a full and a psychopath and that gets old too. But I would like for the legend to call him one day and not do the fake laugh in the Ric Flair thing. I mean, something else. Besides Alabama, Ric Flair in the fake laugh. Thank you. Thank you. Uncle bird. How are you? I'm doing fine. How are you? Very well. Thank you. Yeah, I'm just calling back in, I think, there's some stuff up last week and what's going on apologize, I guess, for that. I guess, you know, I just feel like AC needs to know this is a football ACC talking and so and we just don't really need all that kind of stuff coming in back in here. We're up here, we love the show and I was born and raised in south Alabama. I mean, North Carolina now cutting logs like I said and we listen to you every day and like I said, just that kind of stuff just needs to be developed. Nobody wants to listen to it. Thank you very, very much. I appreciate the call. Brandon is up next. Hello, Brandon. Hey, Paul. A long time listener, first time caller, enjoy listening to depot. Thank you. I just wanted to run something by you kind of get your opinion on something. Cam Riley, close friend of mine. He's a linebacker at Oliver and going into his third season at auburn. First two season had minimum play in time. He had to sit behind the Kobe McLean, a Chandler, no impact of, so it started going into his third season. I think the last interview, they had him listed it, I want to say 6 four 235, 240 pounds. So he's really blown up and off season. Do you think he could be

"And you need a bunch of other materials that go into that that also require water. And so the idea of my company is to remove all of that middle man part of the process where you're removing the need to use all that unnecessary amounts of water. By just making it into a single device so that you're using. Just a minimal amount of volume. And how does that you mentioned at the beginning or maybe I did that one of the things that you're passionate about and that your company is trying to do is help to enhance accessibility to food and creates food security for people who don't currently have that. How does reducing the amount of water that goes into these drinks or the beverages? How does that how does that help with that? So my company's mission isn't necessarily food security. That's my personal mission. But their mission is to sustainability of on waste that goes into water, what water waste or water to create it. And the reason why reducing water is important is because we're in a drought, at least in California. And there's a lot of things that are due to climate change around the world. Where water is going to become scarce resource for us. And to be able to sustain the growing population and also make sure that we're not reducing quality on end of beverage, we still want to be able to enjoy the things that we're. We want to still enjoy the things that we currently and by reducing the amount of water that we don't necessarily need to make these things that we enjoy will do less problematic practices like taking from groundwater. There's a lot of agriculture parts of the industry where they'll do a lot of illegal things to get as much water and by doing that they'll take away water from communities that actually need it. Yeah, thank you for sharing that. And. Water is something that, you know, you hear whispers of it's going to become a precious resource. Don't take it for granted, but then it can be hard to wrap your head around that with what we currently the way that we view water the way that water is involved in our life. So I do like to bring that to our attention when I can. Now, with your role there, yeah, is there anything else that you want to share with the work that you do and just what you have learned that you would like to pass on to the community and be about water, be it about what you do as a flavor chemist, be it in your journey, anything else that you'd like to share there. I will say that there's a lot of things that we can do in order to fulfill what I think is important. To align with my values, regarding food security, like we were talking about. There's a lot of things that we can do to make our diet healthier and also not add to the climate crisis by either reducing the amount of water that is put into these processes so that there's enough water for people to consume, but I'm really excited to see where food science goes. I always wanted to be Willy Wonka. When I was a kid, it still do. Come to your factory, even if it's a wonderful. Yeah, it's still a dream of mine, so check in a couple of years. But yeah, there's a lot of things that are in the process of being created that I hope hope help reduce the problems in our society. And obviously this is very. Positive outlook on the way things are going to go. But I do have a lot of hope for it. And I think people are finally waking up that this isn't a local problem. This is a global issue. And the only way we can really move forward is if people work together globally. So then, yeah, give us before we wrap up here, give us a, you've talked a lot about community for someone who is feeling a lack of that. And maybe it's that discomfort of putting themselves out there to go meet some new people, maybe it's just a pandemic has made them into feeling nervous about being around others. Anything you would encourage people to get involved in community even if it's going to require maybe feeling a bit awkward or a bit uncomfortable for you first get started. So going back to my whole no zero days. One don't put pressure on yourself to feel like you need to be something or you need to be acting a certain way. I have felt very scared and timid to leave my apartment. I still do. There's a lot of trauma that's happened for many people throughout the pandemic where you have that fear of being outside being around people, especially if you're interacting with family where you put anything awful to happen to them. And so you're thinking about all these types of relationships. But at the same time, there's other people who are also feeling the same way as you. And they're also scared to meet new people and it's okay to feel awkward. I feel awkward all the time. Being socially awkward, I think, is very acceptable right now. Anymore, very understanding that we have been in a cave for the last two years going into three years. And there has to be a lot of empathy for that. And I think if you approach it to those scenarios that are very overwhelming, people wanting to connect, even if they feel like they're not capable. So as long as you're thinking actively about wanting to connect, I think that's a good first step. That's such good advice. Thank you. I really appreciate that. And you just sharing all the other elements of your life and how much running means to you. And we look forward to cheering you on in that first marathon. When it comes, so where can people go find you, go follow along with you in the future? Yeah, so I have an Instagram. My name is kind of funny. But I was, I didn't know what to do myself. This was also a pandemic creations, but my Instagram name is hands for.

"That's really my advice is saying what you know. And being honest about it. And you said that you still work through that yourself, what did that look like for you? Like early on. Yeah, I mean, art can be lonely. It can definitely be lonely, especially when everyone's so separated right now. And so having that community and having people be willing to hear your perspective, because perspective is so important to us. And whether or not you have the idea behind why certain things for creative or why certain decisions were made, perspective can help someone feel understood. And I think that's the power of art where people who may not have the ability to really showcase themselves or feel like they have the power to really tell the world who they are, their art can do it for them. And how does sustainability tie into this for you? Obviously you've mentioned you were using materials that's something huge rather than continuing to buy virgin materials or use vegetable materials, but how is sustainability been in your life and then come into your art? Yeah, so for my art, yeah, I use a lot of packaged material packaging material for my job, which I've stolen. From my neighborhood, I'll collect cardboard and clothing that people are discarding. Clothing waste is absurd. It's absurd. And people are trying to figure out what to do with this situation that we're in, where there's just landfills, water, sources that are polluted with clothing, so in terms of starting small, I'm trying to use those materials that would go to landfill and incorporate them into my art. And then in my career, my job is trying to reduce the amount of water that goes into the beverage industry. And so just a bit of background, you mentioned I'm a flavor chemist. I work for a beverage company, a beverage startup in the Bay Area. And I am their product developer. And my main focus is to figure out ways for us to reduce the amount of water that's put into the beverage industry and also reduce the need of packaging those beverages. Glass waste aluminum cans in order to directly go into whatever your reusable container is, that will help reduce pollution and the need to create more pollution in order to make those materials. Can you just show you said about reducing give us some context in terms of why how much goes into the beverage industry? Why does it need to be reduced? Yeah, so let's start with a juice. Water is going to go into the agriculture of creating the plants to make a juice product. Can you tell me about like a I don't even know what juice is a wells Welch? Welch's are you talking about that kind of thing? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I think. So let's take that as our example. Say a specific, should I? Let's just say a commercial about that kind of juice, not like an orange juice. Okay. So there's a lot of, there's a lot that goes into the process of making something like that. You have your facilities that require a lot of energy and require a lot of water to even produce a single bottle of a juice. And the amount of the actual amount of the water, I don't have that exact number. But let's just say it's a.

"Hands for you? So going back to the Jack Dawson. I could talk about Titanic all day long. I know. I can understand. I think hands are beautiful. I think they're under undervalued in how they're presented. And I think there's a lot of stories you can tell from someone's hand. The way that I see hands is labor. There's a lot of hidden labor in people's hands. And what they've gone through in life, what they've been exposed to or how they feel in a situation, there's a lot of things that you can tell from someone's hand. And so I don't want to make anyone self conscious, but I do look at people's hands. When I meet them or people that I know and I don't think anyone has ugly hands, I don't think the ugly hands exist. Everyone has their own history. And so everyone's story is unique to them. And the reason why I think hands are beautiful is because you can have a lot of you can show age to them. You can show frustration, you can show personally personality. Yeah, hands can show personality. And so that's kind of been my approach to art is one hands are really enjoyable for me to draw. And I've moved away from trying to make them realistic and just make them realistic for me. I'm not trying to make the best hand. That's not what's important to me. What's important to me is that they hand is getting it, say. And so what I mean by, I'm told labor or hidden laborers. So I make, I really like making hands out of mixed media. And particularly cardboard. And I carve it with an exacto knife from based on my drawings. And so I'll draw a hand either on directly on the cardboard or in my sketchbook and trace that and carve it directly onto whatever material I'm using. And the reason why I use these recycled material is more of a commentary on the fact that a lot of people who are doing these hidden labor jobs or things that are part of our society are in a way. They're being used as like a replaceable product. Where the humanity is stripped from people who are in those positions. And I use these types of materials to comment on that. And in a way, show that despite the way that society they view people like me or people who are in those circumstances, they're still going about their lives. They're still trying to navigate these situations. Thank you to inside track of sponsoring this episode of the running field podcast. I have been working with inside tracker since about 2017. I have taken many tests and I love that I can continue to track how my biomarkers are doing. I can see them at a glance. I can see them in detail. I can see what things need improvement, what things are at risk and what are optimized. I can see that my inner age is 25, which, as a 33 year old, I know I'm not old, but as someone who's 33, having an enraged of 22 is pretty awesome. I love that I can select a goal for me. I actually picked overall health, but you could pick injury prevention, you could pick and recovery, got stress, you could pick performance, whatever it is for you. They give you actionable things easy things that you can do and follow along each day. For me, one of my recent ones was to stop taking my iron tablet as I was taking too much. And so that was a great reminder to me that I was overdoing it and I could get myself feeling better by reducing my amount. And I have been feeling better since I've been doing that. They give you future recipes that work with the things that they are recommending to you to optimize your levels. You can see some articles. You can see lots of science and videos if that is what you were interested in. And I love that it is just all in one easy place. Now my Friends, as a friend of running for real, you get 25% off. You won't see that offer another place is 25% off by going to inside Draco dot com slash Tina. That is a special offer just for you, my Friends. So go to inside tracker dot com for slash Tina to go check it out and sign yourself up. Yes, that's beautiful. And I mean, it's kind of a perfect representation of what we talked about at the beginning with what does art even mean because there's so much you could take from so many elements of art or so many different types of looking at what is beautiful and what it's not is what you see in it and you're right that hands are definitely underappreciated and they do show a lot about us. About our journey and yeah it's really interesting to think about and also something that we don't as you said play enough attention to. So something to just right now be appreciative of. And as, you know, with my role in running, I'm quite often reminding people be thankful for your looks. Like, yes, they may have ended up injured when you overdid it with something, but they also think about what they've carried you through. Think about what they do on a daily basis, and it's the same very much so with our hands. And that said, with, you know, you say mixed media. Is that the idea? Using multiple types of materials like paint or pastel, cardboard, and leather. So then with that, that's obviously something that's very niche, very you've obviously discovered and followed your path to find what you want to do and how you want to do it. What would be your advice to someone who maybe has something of interest to them that isn't like a traditional thing to do, but they feel like a draw towards it, but they're concerned about as unfortunately we often are, what others will think or what others will say. I'll be totally honest with you. This is still something that here and now I can also struggle with and have had to push through and, you know, as long as you're being authentic, that's really all that matters and being authentic to what you know and what you value, other people will see that. And there's a lot of artists that have gone the non traditional route with how they tell their stories or tell someone else's story. Or even just conveying what they're feeling that day, they're being authentic and when you're authentic, other people can relate to that. And that's really,.

"In my head, go on an adventure. And really feel like I could do whatever. I could be whoever. Yeah. Absolutely. I think most people listening know that feeling well and I love hearing with people the evolution of getting to that point of I think for most people with the society we live in at some point it becomes about staying in shape and then it evolves beyond that as you realize what else it gives you beyond that. So I really appreciate you sharing that. And then we already talked about the pandemic kind of messed with things a little bit, but yeah, with your evolution of running and how it's how it's grown, you did your first ten K and that obviously meant a lot for you. To be able to do that, I'd love to hear about where you hope it's going to go in the coming years and what you hope running will continue to be for you. Yeah, I mean, I'm super inspired by people who do a lot of marathons and that's always been my goal is to complete my first marathon and that was going to be my next step after my ten K but filter in place. But when I did the ten K I did it with my friend who had more experience in running had completed marathons before and it was funny because it was a lot of positive reinforcement during that run. I will say it was hard because it was the first time I ran that long. And I had worked up to building my endurance to succeed at the red and I actually got first place for my age group. Wow, that's quite the outcome for a fantasy. A lot of it was a lot of positive reinforcement. And so the next step for me was to build up to get to that marathon fitness readiness. And so that's still my goal is to complete my first marathon. So really the time for the time being is becoming more acclimated to my routine of running. And remembering what it meant to me before the pandemic. And remembering that it's always there. And I shouldn't put so much pressure. Like, what you were saying about a pressure of needing and feeling that I have to be doing these things every single day. It's hard. Yeah. Well, and especially if you did have success like that in that first ten K, that immediately puts that on you of like, well, I've set the bar now. So it's going to be tough to not get sucked into that as you go. And I'd love to hear have you seen any synergies between your passions and running. Those of us who those who listen to this show and who have been involved in the running community a long time, we always say, it's just like running. It's an running analogy. you felt that yourself? Actually, yeah, I think the relationship between art running and whatever it is I'm trying to accomplish, something that I always say to myself is at least try or at least do it. For art, I will sit in front of a campus for hours because I'm trying to decide between this color or that color and this thing for symbolism and not necessarily wasting time, but the whole thing about I can always fix it. I can always paint over it if I don't like it. At least doing it is what matters is like at least I tried something. And so for running, it's remembering that I might not get to, I might not do the distance that I had wanted to do that day, but at least I did something. And it wasn't, and it's funny because something that really changed my frame of mind was my brother, him saying, don't have any zero days. That doesn't mean doing something about running a marathon. It just means at least you tried something that day. And you feel proud of yourself for at least doing one thing. Yeah, that's so true. And I'm curious with, you know, having your art displayed in an exhibit, did that situation that experience remind you in any way of that experience of lining up for that race, like the nervousness I've always wondered if it's the same kind of nervous but excitement that let's see what I can do here. Yeah, definitely. It was a lot of, I can't believe this is happening. I can't believe I'm doing this. Yeah, yeah, yeah. When I was waiting for the start to go at the ten K, I was in the back. I was at the very back because I was talking to my friend and I'm like, you know, maybe this isn't a good idea. A lot of, I don't know about this, but once you're actually doing it and once you're feeling moment, it's a good reminder that you can accomplish so much more. Yes, so true. Thank you so much for sharing that. Okay, so I do want to dive back into your art. Now one thing when I was reading and when I saw your Instagram that you enjoy drawing hands, that's your kind of passion area. At first I was like, that reminds me of Titanic of Jack Dawson and I was like, am I remembering that wrong? And then I went and looked it up and he did say that he loved this woman's hands that he was drawing. So I actually went and looked it up. But yeah, so she's talking Kate was talking what's her name, rose, was talking about the prostitute that he had been during. You've joined her many times. And then he said, and you must see, I know this movie so well. She said, you must have had a love affair with her, and he went only with her hands. So I know that obviously that's what really, but that's what came to mind when I saw that. And so he did Jack Dawson was like turns as well. Which I totally forgot about that scene, but I can relate to it. Yeah, so I thought you would be like, oh yeah, I do see those hands. This is a special hands. And that's probably a relief for you to hear that rather than I don't know if anyone's brought up. The Friends thing about Joey having a hand twin and then thinking about hands. I totally forgot about it. Is this something that came up when I was thinking about this? But, you know, I mean, your art is absolutely beautiful and you use it to convey vulnerability. I would love to hear about hands. Why hands to convey vulnerability? Like we hear about displaying vulnerability in the way that feels right to you. But what is it about.

"Have a lot of power with controlling the way things are going in the city. It's really about giving them room and acknowledgment that I see you. And so that's why a lot of my art is reflective of those types of narratives. Yeah, and you said to me before we started recording that that has come recently, you have heard artwork displayed at the young museum in San Francisco and you've also had your some of your painting displayed in other exhibits around the area, but you said recently you've been working more on murals and community elements of that. So tell us a bit about, well, also maybe you go into what element of our you specifically are passionate about and then and then yeah, why murals? Yeah, okay. Let me step back and say how I even got into art. So obviously, our is so crazy of a term because what does that even mean? But I've always been interested in art. I just didn't know what that meant to me, what that meant to people like me because my city has a history of gutting the arts program. And so my experience with art, my relationship with artists has been really limited. And so I'm really passionate about accessibility to art. And so art for a lot of people during the pandemic or maybe they always had it, maybe it was something they worked on and got better at. And so that was kind of my reintroduction to art was during the pandemic when I had time away from my lab and really sat down and thought about what was important to me. And so something that I had always been interested in was public art. And to get into that space can be really hard because there's a lot of, well, not a lot, but there can be backlash with how people approach that space, particularly how it might affect the community, the public art is and if it's not reflective of that community. And so you want to have a good relationship with the people who are within that space, but also the people who are going to interact with that space. And so the way that I got into public art was really just reaching out to this nonprofit on Instagram and getting another example of today. Exactly. And so I reached out to them because they just so everyone knows the program, the nonprofit is called three 33 arts. And what they do is they coordinate with artists and the area of within the Bay Area. And we create murals for free. Everything's volunteer. And it's beautiful because I just connected with so many different artists within the community that I would never have been able to. And everyone's very approachable. And so my philosophy is that there should be art everywhere. And some cities do it well. Some cities don't. Because of funding and publicity regarding the need for public art and every time I've talked to a stranger on the street when I'm in the middle of making a mural, everything's always been positive. We need this. We've always wanted a mural here or why don't we have more of this? Those are the questions that I've had with complete strangers on the street. And so it's definitely a need. And so being a part of three 33 has enabled me to fulfill that dream and be more ingrained and a part of the community, which is really, really important, particularly during the pandemic when everyone's been so far apart. And so it's good reminder that community is there and hungry for connection. I love that. And that's so, I mean, it doesn't have to, you don't have to be someone like you who is able to have that skill that talent have had that practice to be able to do it on a public setting, but like you said, that craving for community. And that's actually going back to all birds. I really felt that so much on that day that you and I met like the fact I messaged you. I was already feeling that energy from that connection of being in that chat even just from that and that was obviously virtual, but yeah, we are all craving community and running for real here with that definitely something we're passionate about as well. And yes, I thank you for sharing that. Although I have a selfish question about murals quickly. I've always wondered. How do you, like I can't figure out the logistics of like, you obviously must draw an outline of things first, right? And then fill them in. But how do you do the scale end of it? Because you obviously can't see the whole thing when you're working on it. So just tell me human me with filling me in because I've always wondered about that. There we go. Of course. People, different artists approach it differently. The way that I do it is probably not the most economic. Which is why I take so long. But I literally draw everything out with pencil. And I'm on the wall on the wall. Oh, wow. Okay. But there gets to a point where you're just like, all right. I need to speed this up. So then you'd kind of you outline it in a light color. Do you like outline it and then do you keep going back, stepping back or do you step back a lot to get perspective to make sure that proportions are right? And a lot of ways that artists do it faster way is to kind of spray paint or quickly paint the outline and then they can make adjustments with a light color paint so that they can paint over it without it coming through on the finished product. And so you kind of erase in a way with more pain. So you can fix your lines with that light color and then make your final outline at a darker color. So you know where to follow. And in terms of proportions, it's really just about practice. And the more you do it, the more comfortable you get with trusting yourself, that the lines that you're doing will be accurate. And another thing, just sorry. No, no, go Friends. It's fascinating. The great thing about painting is that you can always paint over it to fix today. It's something that I have to remember is it's really easy to fix mistakes. It's so easy. Just get over it..

"Callen, I am so excited to welcome you to the running for your podcast. Thank you so much for joining me. Yeah, of course, I'm super excited. Yeah, this is gonna be fun. And I should share with the listeners that are meeting was kind of random, but also very representative of our society nowadays, I suppose, that the way that we met, which was we were both we both are in orbits or good collective. And we were both on joining a flock week call, I actually did three, so I can't remember which of the three it was that we were both on. But we were attending an event that all beds was putting on and you shared, I think you shared at the time about being a flavor chemist. And I was like, well, that sounds like the coolest thing ever. And you mentioned about packaging passionate about food security and enhancing accessibility. And I thought, yes. I really want to connect with this person. And I messaged you, and then we connected on social media, and then I was like, please be around and please be a runner. And I messaged you and said, do you happen to run by chance and you were like, yeah, I do. Not professionally, which is the response I get, actually, should I just add 90% of the time when I ask people if they're running, they're like, yeah, but I'm not a professional. I'm like, that doesn't matter. I just want to know that you actually just have even been on a run once ever. And then we connected and here we are. So that's my version of the events. Would you say that was an accurate story? What happened? Yeah, and I love it. And so here we are talking about this. And I love there's going to be lots there's going to be three main directions we're going to go into with this. You're running is obviously going to be a part of it. But I also want to go into some other areas of things that you do. I mentioned being a flavor chemist. And I think that's fascinating to learn more about and just some of the things that you are working on within your job, but also just thinking a bit deeper beyond just it being a career on what it means. And then also what you do is what you call a little hobby in your art. It's more than a lifestyle because it's at a point where if I don't do it, I feel physical pain. So it has to be a part of my life. I think my Friends could relate that to their running. And are you there with your running? At this point, would you say as well? I would say, well, I would say before the pandemic definitely, it became very ingrained, the pandemic definitely messed with my psyche. But I'm glad to be back into that routine. And I think one huge stress reliever, I'm sure everyone can relate to that. But also there's a lot of freedom and that's something that you and I talked about. It's running and it's nice to be able to remember that. That's always been an option. Yeah, yeah, for sure. And I'm glad that you said that the pandemic kind of messed with it because I think that has been the case for a lot of people. And there's been a lot of internal shame around that, not that there should be, but it's, again, that world of social media where we see people who use the pandemic to do even more than they usually would. As you said, it becomes a stress relief, but it also can be hard to get motivated when things are going on, or may not physically have time. And there's a lot of people that may have been able to heighten their money and get in really good shape, but then there's plenty more who have had trouble fitting in and getting maybe they did a four. So I appreciate you sharing that. And we'll go deeper into that. But first, I want to read to you a line that I read off your website that I just would love to hear why you felt you wanted to share this right at the top of your about me section on your website, which is Callen is black Japanese and Mexican, her heritage has allowed her to have a well rounded perspective on events and experiences, particularly those relevant to Oakland. I'd love to just hear why did you feel you wanted to include that right at the as soon as people meet you, that's what you wanted to share. Well, I'll just say that my background is very unique in the sense that I've been exposed to multiple cultures. And. If you haven't visited Oakland, it kind of is a bubble because it's very, very diverse of a place. But at the same time, there's been so many changes in the last ten years. And that's been in a way detrimental to the community. And so kind of putting my identity out there as a way of reclaiming that narrative that people like me because there's a lot of people like me in Oakland where multicultural, this exchange of cultures is really critical and crucial to the community of Oakland. And so I put that out there as a way of reminding that people like me still exist. In this community. I think that's really, I appreciate the way that you shared that as well. And I think that's good to mention why and that's the reason I ask that is because we are at a time where it can be pretty uncomfortable one way or the other either saying something or not. But as you said, a reminding reminding people that you are here, you are multicultural, that's a beautiful and wonderful. Part of who you are, but also it's something, like you said, that's really exaggerated in somewhere like Oakland. And yeah, I have been to Oakland a few times in the last ten years and I can see what you're saying about there. And I would love to hear related to that. So you have this lifestyle, as you said, about with art. And you very much tie that to where you are in Oakland to the local community. I'd love to hear how that comes into, yeah, that person you've become because of your background. Yeah, of course. So the way that I've approached art has been really about exposure to one the way that I grew up and what I've seen I grew up. And also to the vast amount of stories that just aren't told about these different types of experiences of growing up in this community. And so the way that I've approached art is about giving room for those stories and making people acknowledge that they exist. And what I mean by this culture exchanges the way that Oakland has evolved as a town as a city is because of these exchanges. And so it's really about making sure people understand how much these types of experiences, these people who may not have the voice, the ability to.

The Creation Story of SavvyCal With Founder Derrick Reimer
"Just having a scheduling tool listeners. May be familiar with tools. like callan. lee is kind of the big the big behemoth this space. Basically it helps you be able to send a scheduling link to another person. That represents times that you're available to meet and then the other person can use interface to do select time and then puts a calendar invite on everyone's calender and maybe if you're like doing it over zoom it'll spin up a zoom meeting and attach that so that there's a place to meet. I've kind of been familiar with this this type of tool for a while. So i kind of mentioned this already but drip was. The company spent much of the last decade building and it was marketing automation software. And one of the first integrations that we built was basically Integration with callan lead. That allowed someone to send a scheduling link safer like a product komo or something and then when someone booked time it would send an event over to drip and put that on their profile and then you could trigger different automations based off with that so kind of automating that workflow around around scheduling and so. It's kind of familiar with this this type of tool. I've used it a bunch for customer interviews and Just meeting with with other partners and investors or whatever so it's sort of been floating around idea notebooks about lake. I an exercise that i regularly do when. I'm when i'm thinking about you know what what type of projects to be working on. I kind of keep these running lists of tools that have been in my tool chain that i kind of understand i understand that the market the type of people that use them and so this one had been in my notebook for awhile and basically i kind of recognize some interesting Interesting things dynamics around this type of product. The big ones being bad. I always had a ton of anxiety. When i was going to use a scheduling tool because as maker. I'm i care a lot about keeping my calendar pretty protected. You know so. If i'm going to send something that gives someone a window into when i'm available to meet. I'm always very hesitant. Like are they going to. Potentially you know. Drop a meeting right in the middle of my day and caused that to be an unproductive day. Or if i'm like trying to do a whole round of calls people send like i e mail out a link because this is going to completely rent my calendar and that's always it's sort of a. It's a difficult problem to solve. Because it's like you can only do so much if you're gonna if you're going to offer time to somebody they're going to pick a time and it's going to potentially be bad but i feel like can do a better job of making someone like me feel better about being able to send out a

"So here's a follow question from one of our listeners. So cd lamb or terry maclaurin dynasty. Right now cd lamb. I gotta go see too. I put my money where my mouth is. At this point. I mean lawrence brave but like do. We know the quarterback tackling long-term. Maybe i mean ryan mr inconsistent fitzpatrick if you ask me. He can sling it but he can also lose games. This is a really really could and then really excited about the prospect of callan arrived in Or heineke heineke throwing unbought and this actually. Well yeah heineke can play. But it's not like any of these guys you know if if even if even if let's say fitzpatrick bench know the football team have good enough defense alone. We're like could like would jeopardize the entire draft next season like where they could finish like end up drafting like ten even if their quarterback does Goodly i don't see them getting a top five pick in next year's nfl draft so that being said if the quarterback play isn't good this season there's not necessarily answered the Not necessarily like going to be good next year. Either now again seeing terry corn. He's phenomenal and maybe he gets better with the you know having somebody else like play. It's actually legitimate. Nfl caliber receiver. But they really did not have an nfl caliber receiver on that team outside of a corn. Leisure like you're bringing samuels and he's going to get a khanna touches. I can't keep on telling people how much they should be. Investing in kersee was at his current price right now but you know that's another addition you know what i mean like. We've talked about this today. They bring in dom brown which you could say if somebody wants to say that were to hound yami brown that that's fine. You know we probably are at this point but like the brown is a better prospect. Mcchord was coming in and he does all almost exact same stuff as corn. So i you now have three receivers. They're they're actually legitimate. Nfl receivers in my opinion you. Also everybody was the project a gibson to get more catches this year. You know always sure. That logan thomas is going to be completely you know he can start losing targets as how i meant. A thomas was really picking up steam. Third santa last season but we do have another question from one of our listeners. And it's cd. Lamb or jackson jefferson and he sang sounds to me like what the top by receiver take. You take lamb jefferson and redraft and that seems to bolt. While i'll say i right now i don't have c c lan the -sarily as a top five receiver but i'm saying as far as potential upside. I think there's a good chance that he ends up being a top five receiving this class. You know we've always see each year. You know even though it seems bold time injuries can happen. And you know it's a lot of unexpected things. When seasons the season's done and over with last season everyone was like all. You'd be crazy not to think that. Michael thomas is going to be the number one fantasy football receiver last. This season will obviously got injured but even when he came back. Didn't look that good. So i don't think you would have done that even even if he came back. So i'm just saying you know it definitely could happen. Even seems bold right now..
Bet The Board
"callan" Discussed on Bet The Board
"And i know it's the first preseason game but it didn't really leave you warm and fuzzy and then you've had the colts injury issues and you know we were initially going to fade them and then you have houston so it's really tough to attempt to make a case. Even though the titans are going to regress it's just a difficult way of figuring out how to fade them. But i think probably week to week might be the best way to go about that. I mean that's the great part about the betting market is you can have strong sentiments about teams overall outlook for a season and bet their win. Total over under or you can try and attack the divisional markets. But if you feel there's going to be some various volatility that's the great luxury we have is better that bookmakers don't where you're going to get ample opportunity to honor against some of these teams and the titans have all that potential to fit that bill. I'm definitely curious pain. Because there's two fan base is that i'm intimately connected to on a variety levels having done a ton of media work and in chicago. I've been injured tractor so far of justin fields just kind of tampering. Those expectations and people want to run me out of town. There and yesterday in nashville. I talked about the titans defense and how yes fresh faces are good but expecting them to look like the eighty five. Bears probably not realistic in any stretch of the imagination. And heaven forbid you say that this titans offense could take a step back. They'll run you out of town with pitchforks and fires at the end of those sticks so an interesting division for all the wrong reasons in my opinion s- clearly someone's going have to win it and figure out what these teams are on a weekend out basis. Follow the podcast at the board pod on twitter. Follow pain on twitter as well at paine insider. i'm todd furman and sign up for the bet. The board football free all the details right there on our twitter feed go to fan duel sportsbook dot com take advantage of the generous sign up offers. That are there. Make sure you use the code. The board and pain. I don't want to keep you too long. You've been a soldier. You're so far getting through four teams in the worst division football while performing it maybe sixty percent of capacity as far as your voices concerned but there is one final order business to transact and our listeners know. We didn't say there was going to be a best better win. Told or anything else to sink their teeth into on every show during the preseason. Run up this year. But is there an opportunity whether it's a season-long outlook or maybe even a week to preseason game you feel is worth a small investment. No one knows this. But you are the real. Mvp of this podcast. Because we have new microphones this season and for whatever reason. I wasn't sure that there was a mute button on here but that has come in handy as i swallow some cough drops and drink some hot tea throughout this process. It's basically been on mute every time i'm not speaking Let's go with what we discussed last night. And if you wanna deliver it to save my voice that would be much appreciated. Sure it'll be a preseason game bat number four twenty two. That would be the minnesota vikings as modest favorites. I know we talked about it. We'll get into the best way to try and tackle the second taking on the indianapolis colts when you look at minnesota. This was a team that was flat out embarrassed last week against the denver broncos obviously to our benefit with denver are preseason best. Bet but you look zimmer and his tracker he's always placed emphasis kind of building that winning culture and he was not shy about calling out a variety of players whether it was going into the half or in the wake of callan mons performance now killing mon- had about two practices under his belt. We didn't think he was going to get a lot of reps. Lo and behold he was out there and look like he was rather winded with a quarterback. Who's gonna use his legs as most dynamic weapon. Don't expect alvin cook or just in jefferson to be out there jefferson plays. It's an added bonus but all speculation is that kirk cousins is going to be out there for at least a handful of series mid all of that controversy that could be big for his confidence building going forward and defensively. Hey look this is a viking steam. That's going to be better this year. They didn't play anybody last week. Anything would be a significant upgrade. The paying more importantly the colts are going to go with your boy. Sam l. anger in the first half. Let's build an ice three touchdown lead before. Jacobson tries his best to bring the colts back from the abyss. Dare mention this when we gave out the broncos as a best bet but even after the loss. Last week zimmer is twenty in six and the preseason so He really puts an onus on this as you alluded to some of the quotes have been quite telling in practice has been really intense this week. So Let's go with the vikings at this point though. I do like the money line option because in the preseason one is a very key number so i think it's worth going the money line route here and lay the twenty five cents so when you look at minnesota. This is a team that obviously we talked about at great lengths when we preview the nfc north. We broke them down earlier to team. We have i- expectations for and it's all about trying to build a winning culture. Hopefully it starts saturday afternoon when they welcome in indianapolis pain time for you to go. Rest your.

Oh gosh i'm really like emotional about the dawn staley news but this is what i wanted to bring to your attention because i unclear about this as well And here's i'm just gonna read the last paragraph of this staley's departure means there will be all new leadership for the us women's basketball program by the next major competition. The twenty twenty two world cup national team director. Carol callan who has overseen the program since ninety nineteen ninety-five announced in july that she was stepping down from that role although she will still continue as prevot president of fiba americas so now carol callan is involved with fiba and it was feeble ultimately. If i'm not mistaken that said no to neka agoo mckay. I don't know if it was to be america's so here's the article former wnba mvp neck. Ogle mckay was notified by fiba that her petition to play for her native nigeria in the upcoming tokyo olympics was denied due to quote substantial involvement for more than ten years with us team usa sources. Toll espn wednesday. The nigerian basketball federation filed an appeal too feeble on behalf of good mckay and elizabeth williams zealander dream center who was also denied because of previous involvement with team usa. The federation wrote that yoga mckay and williams were quote. Two of the top players that would have made our team one of the strongest at the games. That's the nigerian federation wrote that. So i don't know. I just thought it was interesting That piece but speaking of neck agoo mckay. Let's go to her conversation at The la sparks media availability. So we're getting media availabilities in case you can't Tell why just gave you Media availabilities from the olympics. But we're going to hear from the sparks you're also going to hear from the mystics because there's some news there and Yeah lots of news but neka ogm mckay got emotional during her media. Avail the other day when asked about just reacting to everything that's happened regarding not making the us team the petition. Not being accepted for her. To play for nigeria. So here's a little taste of that. It's been a lot of like trying to figure out how to how i want to come out of this. You know because. I think when you endure situations that are tough in life you can choose any differ roads and their stages. You know and so now i just. I'm just really grateful to be playing with my team. You know. I'm grateful to be on a team with people that care about me And i just wanna play. I just want to play basketball. And i you know they always say like situations in trials you know you you. You grow stronger In what is inside of you is kind of like exacerbated. And so i would like to say that out of that like i've always been described as resilient and i think i had to kind of tell myself that a lot to make sure that i believed it because it's been a few weeks of feeling on invaluable or unworthy and so like it's been very difficult. I'm sorry i swear i wasn't good. It's been very difficult. So i just wanna play basketball. Oh sorry i just want to play and have fun and emotional neck. Oga mckay again. There's been a blemish on usa basketball for quite some time. This was a hard olympics It ended with a medal. It ended with two players making history with coach. The deserves so much more than she will likely get Brand stewards the mvp of the tournament. I don't know how was it. Asia wilson and even brittany griner really had a great a fantastic gold medal game Has me eating my words. it's just a lot. It's exhausting I did not obviously go through. What neka has gone through. But i feel her emotion and so many other things that we've had to endure sushi's emotional for a lot of reasons. I'm sure but i from what i heard her saying is that she's glad to return to the court and to be with her. La sparks team and to return in a space senate away where she knows that she's valued because when you're not playing and you're in the middle of turmoil as neka was unsure. It's hard to to hang on to all of the good. And i just imagine what it must take tanakh neck. Ogle mckay off of confidence. I mean that just baffles my mind. But we're not gonna we're going to end on what we hope is a lighter. Note someone else that did not make the twenty twenty twenty twenty. One team is atlanta della. Promising future once. She can stay healthy it which she has not been able to do but we're going to hear some updates on linda de you know had a fantastic tournament. Emma amon. her numbers are up there. With asia. wilson. With brian stewart. You know us to do is another player. And they played fewer games because they got knocked out sooner so But we're going to hear from the washington mystics about elena della don end a little bit about.

"callan" Discussed on Around the Rim
"They were three and seven with an seven stretch in those first ten games out of the gate. As i said they were without candace parker for the majority of that stretch. Candace parker comes back. The chicago sky settle in and for their next ten games. They went seven and three with a six and a run and on the season. They have the longest winning streak. Ever in franchise history with seven consecutive wins. Chicago needs that energy. The missing piece for this team in the last several seasons has been a veteran leader that has taken a team not just to the finals but to a championship. And guess what they have now. Homegrown talent candace parker. And you're wrong to tell me that veteran leadership doesn't make a difference in the wnba it sure does and the twenty twenty one chicago. Sky are proof positive. Look for them to rely on candace parker not just on the court but in the locker room and if they can be successful in getting better at that mental game at stealing themselves and being able to let a lot of the things chicago will be the first ones to tell you. They don't like the calls. I don't like this gotta let that go. Keep your eyes on the prize. I think chicago can definitely do that. But let's see what happens in the second half again. Eric lindsay ayala from lockton women's basketball. You can follow me at elands. E zero eight on twitter. Hey miles early. On the new york liberty beat reporter. I read for nets republic queen baller southern winter liberty reached the break in game under five hundred after an up and down first half the ranked sixth that are just one game clear. Ninth-place dallas in the clustered standings. New york will need to hit the ground running on the other side of the hiatus. But we'll have to work. Cut out for them immediately. The matchup i against the fourth-placed minnesota lynx followed by back to back set against the league leading seattle store like many teams. In the w the liberty and head coach. Walt hopkins hoped to return to play with a healthy complete roster. Tasha howard signed this past offseason to be their defensive anchor in pick and roll. Threat has been limited screened.

The Virtual Couch
How To Get Unstuck
"I'm i'm really excited to talk about the topic. We're talking about today of just being stuck. I'm going to be referring to a book that never referred to it steven hayes book. Get out of your mind and into your life. It is an acceptance and commitment therapy book and this is one of those feel like it's just one of the fundamentals of the virtual couch where i can just rip a little bit on the concepts around acceptance and commitment therapy and i think it's going to speak to a lot of people because i insert twenty twenty joke here or hard situation here but we a lot of people are coming out of a time where they feel a little bit stuck and man. I'm doing a lot of research around a podcast that i want to release so bad. I interviewed my wonderful friend. Dr laura sparrow months and months ago because she had an amazing article about covert and conspiracy theories and i recorded it and then then it kind of world got weird and wonky and i never ran the episode. But i have it. I've been editing. It and she just makes so much sense around why we will find ourselves turning to things like conspiracy theories when we never had before and it really is around the sometimes feeling stuck the the brain likes patterns. The brain likes knowing. The brain doesn't like uncertainty. It doesn't like ambiguity. And his doctor sparrow pointed out and i will release this episode. But i want it to be so good that i find myself over researching this one in particular but in talking about the way that the brain works and liking these patterns and doesn't like uncertainty. Your brain will kind of turn toward what's called a cognitive bias. Which means you're going to try to find something that makes a little bit of sense to you. Something that's in your wheelhouse and then once you're within that cognitive bias then you then your brain really wants to be certain of itself so it does the old confirmation biased thing where it starts looking for any bit of data to back itself up. I did a episode on confirmation bias a long time ago. I think it was called. Why are there so many tesla's and it was once somebody. One of my clients had talked about wanting tesla all of a sudden. I just felt like everywhere i looked. There was a tesla nation by rank. And do the same thing with thoughts and ideas that sort of thing but once you think something all the sudden you see it everywhere. I've been i've worked in my abandonment and attachment Things into about three or four of my last few episodes. Because it's something that i just feel passionate about and now i find these abandoned an attachment things from childhood everywhere i look. I'll probably work that into the episode today but but acceptance and commitment therapy really is it's the fundamentals of therapy here on the virtual couch and i have seen a lot of people that feel stuck in so i have. I haven't talked about this book before. And i really like it so the chapter that. I'm going to start with his doctor. Hayes talks about the concept of human suffering as universal summit. Read fairmount today giving him all the credit. And then i will give my commentary as as i love to do on the virtual couch so dr. Hey says it often. Many people we meet in our daily life seemed to have it all. They seem happy. They look satisfied with their lives. You probably had that experience of walking down the street when you're having a particularly bad day and you look around and you thought why can't it just be happy like everybody else around me. They don't suffer from chronic panic or depression or substance abuse problem. They probably don't feel as if a dark cloud is always looming over their heads. They probably don't suffer the way i suffer. Why can't i be like them. And get to hear this all the time every day in therapy and i go through it myself as well and dr. Hey says here's the secret they do and you are meaning they do suffer the way you suffer and you are more like them than you think he talks about that. We all have paid all human beings if they live long enough felt or will feel the devastation of losing. Somebody they loved. Every single person has felt will feel physical pain. Everybody has felt sadness. Every felt shame or anxiety fear and loss and we all have these memories. That are embarrassing or humiliating or their shameful and we all carry these painful hidden secrets and we tend to put on the shiny happy faces pretending that everything is okay and that life is all good. As a matter of fact. And i'm not gonna pull the old man get off my lawn on the porch moment here although yes i kind of am and then we have social media which has some amazing things in social media but we also typically put out the. Everything's all good. This is how you do it. This is how easy it is. You just you're happy. Just be happy and and beautiful and well well lit nice filters and then it just looks amazing but people everybody else's kind of not everybody there's an all or nothing statement but many of us are saying they they look like they've got it all figured out it's pretty easy but but it isn't it isn't they can't always be easy or it can't always everything can't always be all good to be human. Is the feel pain in ways that are orders of magnitude more pervasive than what the other creatures on the planet earth feel Dr hey says if you if you kick a dog it'll yelping run away if you kick it regularly. Any sign of your rival eventually will produce fear and avoidance behavior in the dog by means of the process called conditioning. But so long as you are out of the pitcher and are not likely to arrive. Dog is unlikely to feel or show significant anxiety. People however are quite different. He said as young as sixteen months or even earlier human infants learned that if an object has a name the name refers to that object so relations that verbal humans learn in one direction. They derive in two directions so over the past twenty five years. Researchers have tried to demonstrate that same behavior another animal species with very limited in questionable success so far so this makes a huge difference in the lives of people That the lives of people live as compared to animals. He says that the capacity for language put human beings in a special position. Simply saying a word invokes the object that it's named and he says tried out umbrella. You know when you think about when you read that word callan's pretty harmless but consider what this means if the named object was fearful anything that reminded. The person of its name would invoke fear. It would be as if all the dog needed to feel. Fear is not an actual kick but the thought of being kicked. So you see where we're going here that that relationship with words we're one of the only animal on the planet that does that. So that's exactly the situation that you're in and this is exactly the situation that all humans in with language. So here's an example doctorate said take a moment now to think of the most shameful thing that you've ever done and he encourages really take a moment and actually do this. You can pause if you want to but so if you give that thought what did you just feel. He said it's very likely as soon as you read the sentence you felt some sense of either fear or resistance
Top Advisor Marketing Podcast
How To Leverage the Power of Outsourcing Through a Network of Referral Partners With Brad Wales
"One of the skills that you have in one of the powers that you have is is creating a network a deep bench of referral partners that you have already vetted in order to help that adviser after they transitioned. Ria be able to do the things that they want to do. And you and. I talked about this a little bit when it came to marketing right so a lot of people are leaving and wire houses because they're just so tired so tired in especially brother now with this new ruling right oh my gosh testimonials and all of the things that we're going to be able to her finely doing as an ra that's really powerful. How do you find referral partners. And what do you do to that them to increase your confidence so that when you make that referral you know that they're going to do. Good work for your clients a deep bench as you said because as part of my value proposition is helping advisors figure out a whole number of possible solutions. That that they're going to need they go down a path of perhaps the a model and so some of those some of those contacts were just built up over my my years and years and years in the industry and they they came through whatever circumstances than others. I've i've specifically sought out either to kind of deepen my bench or to or to fill a gap in that in that. That's always an interesting exercise and that will forever be be something i'll do because something else will come along and nokia. There's a solution. Maybe we need for that. And it's an interesting exercise. Because i had people that just have not been responsive to me and i can out region out and i know there's a lot of people that are always some sales pitch and so sometimes someone misinterpret while you're reaching out to but that but when i'm reached out in more eloquently but basically and hey i might be in a position to send you referrals asking for any compensation in return. I just would like to learn more about your platform. And and even when i present that some sometimes people either are slow to get back to me or don't get back to me and i just think wow if they won't get back to to me when i'm kinda tossing him a softball how are they. How responsive are they going to be two advisers. I might send them. And and that's that's quite telling on the front end. I try to give people balance. The dow is a busy world. And maybe this kind of missed the first message but but you can kind of feel things out and mad. That's how you and i got to know each other. I just reached out to you very responsive and have a conversation after that and and here we are down this path. So i think it's that kind of initial thing and then just really feel and people out in in once they know. Hey look. I'm not. I'm not trying to sell you just trying to be a good partner here. And what kind learn. And then it's interesting because without even trying you're setting upper a situation where they're gonna reciprocate in the long run without me even asking for a by the way. Could you keep me in. Mind it it just naturally works out when you're when you're looking to genuinely help someone else out perhaps with referrals. It comes back to you as well as you were saying that i was thinking back to when you and i met man of course is for all virtual and it was on linked in right i remember looking at your stuff and watch some of your videos and the first thing that i thought to myself is. This guy's not trying to hawk stuff. It's it's value value value expertise value right in. That's what i fell in then the minute we got on the phone. Just the alignment of a of values. Right i mean. And i'm not talking about deep philosophical values. I'm just talking about business. Core business values. We were in line. And so i was just out of call brad. This is funny was just on a call with an l. p. o. Rep yesterday. Sales call. And i had bad news for right because we have not had the greatest success with l. p. o. wraps because of compliance right so we have nine podcasting tactics and and some of the tactics are bringing guests on an l. p. l. was totally against that we don't provide legal advice isn't frigging. You're not anyway. Whatever i'm not going to get there. And so i was joking with this. It's a father and tucson office and they're they're in western illinois. Hi said well. Hey guys this could be the reason why you guys leave l. l. and you know Start your on our a. And the youngest son the youngest who's been actually with affirm the longest smiled and said well you know that's a conversation we had bam brad's name popped into my head and i was like. Hey guys when. You're ready to do this. I got somebody for you. This is what he does. And you've stayed top of mind one. Because of the fact that i actually do trust you secondly because you have a very narrow focus which means that. I know that you're gonna do what i would refer people to you for but at the same time you have helped build a relationship with makes that referrals a lot easier to to go back and forth and i'm not gonna flood you with new clients as you're not gonna flood me and that's not really the point because as we deepen our relationship we are going to know exactly who you're looking for right so everybody here at problem is gonna know okay if we come across this person. They're the person that we refer to to. Brad right and you're going to be able to do the same thing with us when it comes to outsourcing. What is the number one thing in your experience. In working with financial services professionals that is their biggest obstacle or the biggest category of outsourcing. That if you could wave a magic wand and takata which everybody would outsource this. What would that be at that. You were going to say what. What is the biggest challenge for the person to appear on my radar. So i did separately. You answer that answer this first one and then we'll go back to that one. As far as what my number one. Category of outsourcing. It is quite wide. In the reason i say that is. That's part of why my value proposition exists. Because unfortunately in this case of help advises with if you want to transition into that aura model. Unfortunately it's not just one or two vendor types that that you you need to work with. Its compliance folks marketing. Folks it's technology folks it's custodians. It's back office folks. it's it's all these different vendors and so certainly some are more bigger decisions if you will. You must must make decisions that nice to make decisions kind of thing. And and so that in my world. That's perhaps your custodial partner that that's a big one. That's really going to move the needle. The other end of the spectrum is dozens of different technology applications. You could use you know maybe that. That's the last little piece that adds one little bell or whistle is that's not going to be as pivotal but it still might be important to you. So even something as simple as someone sees that. I use callan lee on my website of how people arrange a conversation with me in the grand scheme of things. That's that's a pretty minor vendor compared to a custodian but yet it's a very powerful tool nonetheless that i think any industry people should be thinking of it. Certainly in the financial services industry is a way for people to get a hold of so. Let's let's talk about people getting on your radar. People are listening to this. And they're like. Oh my gosh. I'd love to refer some business spread. Who who who are the ideal people i mean do you. Do you love working with the wirehouse transition or d transition. Or what what is your. What is your favorite as far as the people come to me. They're seeking out my services. It's primarily anyone again that's interested in that ra model. There isn't an interested because a lot of folks just simply haven't even dip a toe let alone learn let alone be and not use baseball analogy in the fifth in kind of that education process and so in many instances that is wirehouse folks quite often. That's independent broker dealer folks for for the example you gave. Unfortunately there are some constraints even that independent world that that you can perhaps be free of a net or a model. The evan talked to a fair number of people that are. Add an existing. Ira that's not the rhone that they've kind of outgrown that opportunity in wanna launch off onto their own or as well so it's it is it does run the gamut but primarily the more the more pain points you have now and the bigger that gap is to the promised land is where the opportunity is so so something like a wirehouse adviser both from economic jump and a flexibility jump is just a significant advantage. That makes it appeal to have that kind of
"callan" Discussed on 790 KABC
"Because we're toasting today with Paul Callan Carrion and I am so thirsty for it. You see, Paul is the second generation president and owner of the original Wine of the Month club, having taken over the business from his dad, Paul Sr. Who still enjoys a great glass of wine at age 92. Paul has tasted upwards of 100,000 wines. You heard me right, making him a true expert and his podcast wine talks shares insight into the wonderful world of wine. I've always appreciated his deeply rooted love for the grape. And he does believe that wine is one of the only creations in the world that can represent a region and say this is who we are, and I agree. Paul is here to share his ideas today. His trendsetting opinions for what wine looks like in 2021. I'm very glad to welcome you back to the show, Paul. I hope you're healthy and safe and that you've been drinking a lot. Always an honor and pleasure to be on the show. Thank you just again. Thanks for having me. Yes, of course. How much have you tasted during the pandemic? By the way we do have you know in the industry? We do have that excuse its research and development. Right? But have you have you up to the pace? I wonder Well, so, you know, it's always like somebody's gotta do it right. Well, of course, I actually set a record last Tuesday. Now, despite 31st year of tasty wine every Tuesday list a sick or out of town. Right. And I tasted 131 winds last Tuesday from 9 A.m. to about four. Wow, My record to that point had been 100. My record off campus is 162. That's exactly the point is that Cove it has has, unfortunately for restaurants since they're not buying anything right now, right? That changed today. Los Angeles The vendors of wine or looking for places to sell. I mean, there's just there's no place to go. Okay, so wait. Let's talk about that. I mean, 2021 is hopefully bringing some new hope 2020 we Could move on. Thank you. But let's talk about wine offerings at restaurants. I mean, here in California, where you and I live, they recently lifted the stay at home order. We're starting to see a little bit more outdoor dining, but it has been a lot of months. Like you said of zero vendor relations. So that's what's gonna happen in there. Let's not be mistaking. It's gonna take some time. It's very expensive to reopen a restaurant. As you know, like opening a restaurant. You gotta bring the staff back. You gotta bring the equipment back and bring food in. And so why is not gonna be the priority of over the expense for those wine cellars that were used to Curating or having fun with it. A restaurant again take a little wild comeback. And the wineries that Used to rely on restaurant business, sometimes in the tune of 80%. Are looking for avenues outside of the on premises sale and they're coming to us. And that is why online sales of wine and skyrockets recode it. And by the way, 2021 is not backing off. No, it isn't. I agree. I think that what you just spoke about is Definitely a Reminder I and a good one. I think that we want to support always. Of course, our local restaurants to order a bottle of wine, T try to, you know, keep the The flow and the process and the families in the wineries and the businesses afloat. But how does that on the flipside selfishly affect us? Let's say still at home. How do we reap the benefits of those wineries looking for a place? To share their goods. That's a good question that always happens with Cove. It is not only have people you know sales of spice and people realize now that you can actually buy wine online people that never would try before or intimidated to do it. Direct their own. Like doing it. Yes. What's happening? The known brands brands you and I see at the restaurants like Silver. Okay, Mus Austin Hope Thies types of lines are Sold prolifically now online, and they get delivered. Rather expediently these days sort like the Amazon model. We get winds out here every day. So the consumption of quality wine has gone up. But not everything with a name is good. Like I would love to know. And your opinion Why Snoop Dog makes wine? You know you're just got you're really gonna irritate me here. That's why we're friends. Wait a second. If I've been through this business too long to be celebrity wines. There are some legitimate celebrity wines like Greg Norman's brand. Greg George Brandy actually has a facility actually makes the white actually taste the blends. But I'd farfetched to think that Snoop Dog is sitting home blending shoes for Snoop Dog, though I mean, since you brought him up, he was Front and center on Lee weeks ago at the local market, which means you know that position was purchased. I want consumers to know that it's just like toothpaste and shaving cream, and the best spot on the shelf is bought. So here's Snoop Dog. Whoever's been the wine buys that position thinking that Callie Red was gonna flat The shelf in, like, two weeks later was on the bottom shelf, which is a death to a brand. Wait. Is that what it's called? Paul? Callie Red? Yeah. Do you think I could produce a really buttery chardonnay called Better Blonde? Yes. Let's do it. Okay. I'd love it. We'll put your picture on it. Well by the front spot of the shelf and I actually standing the island at the market. You're shooting a selfie video for social. Oh, that would be me too. Yes, People are walking by like, what is he doing? But your point is right. Those aren't religious brands. They certainly are there legal and they're they're bonded and TP be approved them. But we want to curate things that are meant to enjoy and that somebody's the winemakers moniker behind it. Yes, their talent and passion. I agree so with that said Tell us a couple of your newest wine fines, please. Well, I'll tell you. What's interesting these days are some indigenous Italian indigenous caucused wines Georgia learned to find, but let's go to the Italian ones. Is remote regions like not remote, But Cumbria likes sovereignty know from Monte Falco are or the Umbrian reds that are grown and volcanic soil are creating such complexity. That they fascinate me. Every time I taste them, But you're gonna have to find them. You know what? You got to go to a curated store wine shop and say this is what I'm looking for. Can you search online? Sure. Good..
Everything Everywhere Daily
Why Does the Year Start on January 1?
"Every year. The earth orbits around the sun and we celebrate each revolution on new year's day. But what's so special about this particular spot in our orbit. Why do we use january first as the start of our year as opposed to some other day as we go back in history. Most human civilizations did not use a solar calendar they used. Lunar calendar's in fact if you look at the traditional calendars for countries such as china vietnam or for religion such as judaism and islam. They have lunar calendars and their new year's day changes it state every year. Our current calendar can be traced back to ancient rome. The very early romans way back at the founding of the city used to have ten months and that ten months system is still reflected in many of the names of our months today. Their first month was marcus named after the god mars which we call march after march came the months of april ass- maya's and junius the months after this. We're just named after their number until he has sex tellus september october november and december so yeah december are twelve months really means the ten months in latin likewise with november october and september however. Ten months didn't really fit nicely into a year. They had two full months worth of leftover dates. That didn't really fit into any month to rectify this around the year. Seven hundred pc. The roman king numa added two more months to the counter. I annual areas named after the roman god janus and february's which was now the last and shortest month of the year for romans. The beginning of each month was called the callan's so the start of the year was the callans of march or mark. I then at some point and no one is quite sure. When the year began being counted on the calendar of i warious january went from being the eleventh month to being the first month. This might have had something to do with the start of terms for consoles. Romans named their years after the two consuls and power instead of numbering them so for example the year fifty nine bc. Julius caesar wisconsin with kelp. Biblis it was known as the year of caesar bibi however was weak so there was a running joke that it was the year of julius. Caesar it might also had something to do with the fact that january i was the callans closest to the winter solstice. Caesar is actually really important to this story. While the names of the months were very similar to the months we have today. The keller itself was still a mess. Caesar instituted changes to fix this problem. Anti adopted the suggestions of a greek astronomer named side of alexandria suggested going to a tropical year more on that in a bit and created the three hundred sixty five day year with a leap year every fourth year. So that's pretty much. The story right. The roman set january is the first day of the year julius. Caesar sets the julian calender. And we get to where we are today. Nope because in the middle ages the system fell apart completely at the five sixty seven council of tours and there were a whole bunch of different councils of tours so you have to specify. The church declared that january. I was not to be celebrated as the new year as it was a pagan tradition. What replace january first. Well nothing there were. A whole bunch of different days celebrated oliver europe for centuries. Some places used christmas. Which was the winter solstice on. The julian calendar some use the floating date of easter someone back to the old roman march first. And some if you remember back to the episode on why. Christmas is on december twenty fifth us. The important date of march twenty-fifth start of the new year eventually. For a whole host of reasons pope gregory the thirteenth the problems with the julian calender and use the opportunity to standardize the new year back to being january first for good measure. They also made january first holiday which it still is. Today originally january. I was the feast of the circumcision of jesus. But now it's just called the solemnity of mary. Of course not. Everyone was on board with the new calendar. Catholic countries were quick to adopt it but protestant and orthodox countries were not in particular. One country was very late to adopt january first as the beginning of the new year. That country was england. England celebrated their new year on march twenty fifth. In fact their colonies in the americas. Did this as well up until seventeen. Fifty two in seventeen. Fifty england passed what was known as the calendar new style. Act also known as chesterfield's act which is when they adopted the gregorian calendar. The very first thing mentioned in the act was the problem with using march twenty fifth as the new year when everyone else in europe used january first including scotland so when england finally adopted january first as the start of the new year. So did the american colonies for the first time today. Most countries now use the gregorian calendar even if it's only for business purposes to stay instinct with the rest of the world new year celebration such as ted in vietnam chinese new year or rosh hashanah are still traditional festivities held on different days all over the world. The fact remains that there's nothing astronomically significant about january first even though it celebrating an astronomical event aka revolution around the sun so if we were starting new calendar from scratch. What would we pick before. I mentioned that sausage unease of alexandria suggested we celebrate a tropical year and pick that word carefully as opposed to a solar year because there are two types of solar years and they're very similar a tropical year is the time from one season to the next based on win the solstices occur. The current years based on the gregorian calendar are tropical years. However there's also a thing known as ideal year which is when we measure the position of earth based on the location of stars the difference between a ideal year and a tropical year is very small. He said you real year is only twenty minutes longer. This can add up. However the difference between the julian calendar and the gregorian calendar is only eleven minutes per year and that caused a lot of problems over the centuries this has to do with the procession of the orbit that is constantly changing their to logical places to define a new year based on astronomic principles. The i would be one of the solstices. This is something that humans have pictured for thousands of years and have recognized its importance. The winter solstice also is in too far away from january. First the solstice really has more to do with the tilt of the earth however and not the orbit of earth there is something significant about the orbited the earth. That is a point. We could use and oddly enough. It's really close to january. First even though the ancients had no clue the orbit of the earth around the sun is close to circular but it isn't perfectly circular it's a slight ellipse hence there is a point where the earth is closest to the sun. And it's called the para helium perihelion in the year. Twenty twenty one takes place on january second the date of para helium drifts. Over time in the year twelve forty-six para helium actually took place on the same date as the salsas in the year. Six thousand four hundred and thirty it will take place. On the spring equinox so january first is the start of our year which marks astronomical event even though the data itself has no astronomical significance set by the romans abandoned by the church only to be later adopted once again by the church so as the romans did celebrate the callans of january which honors janice the roman god with two faces one which looks into the past at the old year and one which looks into the future at the new

When Covid Subsided, Israel Reopened Its Schools. It Didn’t Go Well.
"Since its debut and twenty seventeen, the Chinese APP tick tock has become one of the fastest growing social media tools with more than eight hundred, million active users. The APP lets users make short videos that are often shared across the Internet, but Tiktok isn't all fun games for months. Now, a lot of the attention about the APP has been focused on the national security concerns and the collection of user data, and as a result, the platform has been banned in India, by multiple branches of the US military and by Wells Fargo employees most recently however, president trump took aim at tiktok himself by threatening to ban the APP. We're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. We may be doing some other things, a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected dictum. Those remarks were before reports surfaced that Microsoft was pursuing a deal to buy TIKTOK in a press conference at the White House yesterday president trump claimed Microsoft or any other company would have to wait until September fifteen to acquire the APP and would be expected to give a percentage of the profit from the sale to the US Treasury. Joining me now is Graham Webster editor of digit China Project at Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center and a fellow at New America Graham thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me. And Cowan Rosenblatt is a youth and Internet cultural reporter for NBC, News. Dot Com callen thanks for being with us as well. Glad to, be here. Cowen who is the average tiktok user? The average tick tock user really is is a dynamic question because there is a huge range of different people who are using the APP but I'd say the most common person you're gonNA find is someone who is either at the tail end of high school or College who is definitely a solidly in generation the Gen Z. and he was using me APP mostly for fun to do dance challenges trends an engaged with communities that serve to their world. Graham. All of that sounds pretty basic I mean it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about so far what type of data does tiktok collect from its users Graham? We'll TIKTOK is like a lot of social media companies these days It's using an AI driven or machine learning driven algorithm to figure out which content to to individual users. So to get this accomplished, they pay attention to obviously whatever you post that also you know what posts on your feed you look at how long you look at them where your device location is They also tried to track individual users like many apps do by looking at things like screen size and operating system and of course, they have a fair amount of information about your social graph, your your connections to friends and other people that you follow. And so what were some of the concerns around the data collection that way Graham given that it feels like there's a lot of, as you mentioned, other social media platforms and advertisers and the like that are tracking everything that we do already. Why? Why is Tiktok being highlighted here and banned in some of the institutions that we mentioned at the top Well, the basic reason is that tick tock is owned by a Chinese company named Bite Dance and they're a fairly new social media company. They had a breakout a few years ago in China with an APP called junior Tokyo that that is a you know an algorithm, IQ news feed and this is China's first big breakout internationally in terms of social media APPS and really getting take-up in in many different countries around the world not just the United States. So there's A concern that data collected by Tick Tock could end up in the hands of the Chinese company or the Chinese government and wild tick. Tock says that it stores all US user data in the US or in Singapore we don't really have a good way as a society right now to check that type of thing and to make sure that companies commit you when they commit to you know storing data and the Safeway making sure that they're actually doing that. Doesn't sound like we have a lot of that in the United States either though Graham. I mean, we have constant security breaches left and right Right. Well, the United States doesn't have a central data governance or data security or privacy Regulatory System the most prominent example of one globally as Europe, which has the general data protection regulation called the GDP are, and that governs things like when an apper services going to collect your personal information they have to gain certain types of consent and follow certain types of rules and there's also kind of limits the. Idea that if you collect data for a certain reason that you got consent for you shouldn't be able to use it for other reasons and that type of governance is just not that prominent in the US partially because the big US social media companies are not especially keen to have their practices heavily regulated they. They find GDP are in Europe to be burdensome and You know get in the way of making money. Kalland back in June president trump organized a rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and rumor has it that tiktok users promoted buying tickets for the event and didn't show up so that the event would be empty. What do we know about how that rubbed of the administration? So, what we know is it seemed to sort of frustrate the administration. Now, there's no evidence that the Tiktok users and K pop stands who are fans of Korean pop music that they had any impact on turnout. We are going through a global pandemic. There are a lot of factors going on right now. So it is really hard to know sort of what that impact was. But what we do know is it likely inflated expectations for turnout. The administration was planning to have a second rally after the main rally in Tulsa. which they then had to cancel, and so we think that it really messed with them. It was a it was a real genuine troll on the part of these tic TAC users against the president, and it really seemed to rub him the wrong way and there are lots of Tiktok users young first time voters who are telling me that when trump said, he wanted to ban this APP that was a retaliation for what they did the stunt they pulled the prank they pulled in Tulsa most what they think is happening. That's what they think is happening why there is no evidence that that's the president's line of thinking but that's what these eighteen to twenty two year olds are telling me that that's their beliefs. Cowan, we talked about The you know whether or not talk users actually had any effect on the trump rally in Tulsa back in June but more more directly here wondering if you're seeing any more political movement on the APP, whether it's a pro trump or pro biden or anti-trump anti, Biden has it started to move away from dance and song and move towards more political leaning so far. It can do both things at once actually. So there are still the dance trends. There are massive accounts that are just enjoying music on the APP but we see a lot of politics on Tiktok now maybe more than ever some young people are telling me they feel that because their home in quarantine and because politics ramping up nationally as we get closer to this election that they're seeing more and more politics in their feet, and what we're seeing is a not so much pro by content, but a lot of anti-trump content and I WANNA be clear. There is Republican Todd Democrat tiktok liberal Tick Tock conservative Tiktok. But what it appears to be is a lot of generation. Z.. Has a anti-trump sentiment and that does not mean they heavy pro biden sentiment. But things that we see our young people say, Hey, on this day, everyone go to president, trump's campaign store and put these products in your cart. But don't check out because allegedly that messes with their inventory or everyone on this day go to president trump's twitter account and report account, and let's see we can get a taken down. So we're still seeing these sort of organized movements sort of Troll, the president and a lot of discussion of politics but whether or not that is in in favor of vice, President Biden or in favor of president trump is sort of yet to be seen. Graham LE. Let's talk a little bit. But I mean, it sounds like tiktok users are for the most part having fun on the site sort of trying to do the things that Collina's talking about here but. On a more serious note, the trump administration has been trying to ban the APP. They're citing national security concerns, concerns over censorship by the Chinese government. Valid are any of those concerns really given what you know about China US politics Well I think it's you have to separate them out So the the concern about censorship I think is legitimate there was there was an example a little while ago where it looked like some of the censorship that they would do in China restricting conversations about things the Communist Party doesn't like discussed had bled over into the international product Now, Tiktok said that they were addressing that wasn't intended again, we don't really. Have a good way in the United States to check up on that and to kind of make sure that speech isn't being censored one way or the other the national security issue I think requires a lot more imagination Now, you know as was mentioned, the the military has has told service members to not use the APP and I think that makes a good amount a sense you know if if you're concerned about an APP Having links to a potential adversary There's all sorts of possibilities of ways that it could be exploited even just using location data of of service members or people who work in sensitive facilities. But if you don't work in sensitive facilities, if you're just sort of going around and and and doing the fun things and engaging in some of the political discourse that Cowan was mentioning you know there's not. A real big national security issue there a I will say that some people think that collecting the full aggregate totality of US Tiktok users could be used later in a analysis to try to do something, but it's really imaginative at this point whereas I think the censorship concerns a real and could be checked on and data privacy concerns are real but should be able to be checked on as well. What about the fact that we we just heard from Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group in the previous segment talking about how the United States is viewed internationally in terms of our response to the corona virus. But I did ask in also about his thoughts on what this Tiktok dust up between president trump and China what seemed to Be Rooted in and he said, you know this is also part of trump's sort of relationship with how he views China and Chinese technology he's gone after while way he's gone you know talked a lot about five G. technologies. So do you see that I mean? Do you see that as a pattern in how the president views technologies specifically that's coming out of China. Yeah I think the you know the trump administration's been. Pursuing a campaign of you know escalating what could be a new type of Cold War approach to China and a lot of it is wrapped up in technology and and I think the focus on Tiktok really makes the most sense. If you consider it a distraction from two things I is a distraction from actual problems with China you know the the trump administration got this phase one trade deal which didn't really get to the deep issues of subsidy and market access and intellectual property protection. And, on the other hand, it's distracting from the fact that a lot of these security concerns should apply across many apps. Why just tick Tock you know you're talking about including American made apps like facebook and twitter. Yeah I mean the concerns are different when the parent company is in China but there are really unaccountable data collection methods going on across ad networks and data brokers are building profiles of Americans and people in other countries that can be purchased just with money and you know it's not only add companies that by this data governments can get it to. Callan, as we sort of touched on this earlier. But of course, we I, say this all the time we're heading into one of the most consequential presedential elections in my lifetime at least social media is constantly changing is tiktok going to be a thing and twenty twenty and November, or is it going to be eclipse with something else or it'll change the? Will it change the election? Calvin what are your thoughts on that? I don't see Tiktok going away anytime soon, as long as the president allows it to operate in the United States I think we're gonNA see more is eight organizing on the APP among young people and I think we're GONNA see. TIKTOK. As long as Microsoft buys it or another company comes in to allow it to operate in the US I think it's going to stick around for a long time. I mean the president did Callan has also asked that Microsoft give money to the Treasury. If it makes this sale, we is anybody else interested in buying tiktok or is it just Microsoft right now? I don't think anyone else has come out as far as I'm aware and said that they are interested in purchasing Tik. Tok I think Microsoft even just recently confirmed that they were interested in this conversation, but it appears a deal needs to be made by September fifteenth. So if someone's going to buy it, it has to happen soon. Well you heard it here I guess I callan Rosenblatt is a youth internet culture reporter for NBC News Dot Com and Graham Webster is the editor of the digit China Project at the Stanford? University Cyber Policy Center and he's also a fellow

As Oil Prices Drop And Money Dries Up, Is The U.S. Shale Boom Going Bust?
"All right the S. and P. Five hundred hit another record high. This week it's up almost twenty five percent for the year but but the SMP's index of oil and gas stocks. This is down more than twenty percent. It's a sign of trouble for this country's oil industry Darius Roffe on has the story some of the most successful companies in the oil business business are household names thing Exxon Mobil or Chevron but the boom in shale drilling that has helped turn the US into the world's largest oil producer that that has been driven by smaller independent operators companies that have pushed the limits of drilling technology and taking big risks on unproven oilfields today day shale accounts for about two-thirds of US oil production and nearly all of the industry's growth but many of the companies that made that growth possible are now struggling to stay stay afloat. David Dacko bomb analyst at Investment Bank. Callan says that has a lot to do with the business model of US shale. This isn't industry. The you know for every dollar that they brought in they would spend two for years. Operators focused on drilling lots of new wells very fast prioritizing explosive growth over profitability. And until now now they've been able to rely on deep pocket. Investors who are willing to pour fresh capital into the industry despite years of lackluster returns. It's a story that may be familiar to anyone. He's been following the tech industry in recent years. Dekel bomb compares it to a kind of prospector mentality. There's a lot of romance I think. Because there's always this idea of this this brand's new play. That's going to have billions of barrels of upside. And if you know you can just get in early than it will pay off in the long run. Of course oil has always been a boom and bust I industry in two thousand fourteen for instance a catastrophic price crash left the industry reeling but even then billions in new investment flowed into US shale today today shrinking global demand for oil is driving the price down once again. What's different this time around? Investors no longer seem willing to write the industry a blank check. I think now. Oh you've seen a lot of pressure of we want you to be a real business. Your cost structure is too high. You have too much that I'm not funding. You're drilling anymore with external capital. You have to live within your means without access to fresh cash. Many producers are pulling back on new exploration. The number of rigs drilling for new oil is at its lowest point in two years. That's bad news is for people like Ron Fountain who works on a drilling rig. In the Balkan Shale of North Dakota. He thinks back to a few years ago when the price of oil was over. One hundred dollars a barrel and companies. These were drilling with abandon. That's when we were still booming. There was rigs coming out every month. We couldn't keep up. There were so many so much work going on today. Though with more and more rigs sitting idle life has become uncertain for fountain and his fellow. Drillers we went from having you know three year contracts to well to well contracts which means you drill one hole and if you did a good job then they'll give you another one or may drop you and we gotta figure it out from there and he's not the only one feeling. The Pinch Halliburton one of the biggest players in. US shale drilling has laid off nearly three thousand workers in the Permian Basin. The country's trees most prolific oilfield employment has almost completely stalled out. That's after going more than eleven percent last year. Meanwhile many of the smaller producers who loaded up on debt are struggling to pay it back leading to a wave of bankruptcies more than three dozen so far this year all of this adding up to slower oil output data from the department energy shows that production was flat in the first half of twenty nineteen after growing more than twenty percent last year in theory as production slows and supply shrinks. The price royal should go back up which could provide a much-needed boost. The question. Says Ron Fountain is how many companies will be able to survive. Until then I think as an industry we're we're GONNA be okay but I think there's a lot of people That are kind of holding their breath.
