Five years later and i left the company after that and ken lions reached out to me after i left the g. Steve was part of this team. And said you know we do a lot of a lot of things that can recreate a people. But we don't do a lot for clients and clients are now about a third of our audience. I don't know they may be even a half of the audience now. So could you help us figure out what to do for clients to enhance the experience because it's overwhelming those who have been there and sometimes it's hard to make sense of everything and bring it back and apply if your business so so we began a young marketers academy and it was a huge hit and it was people under thirty nominated by their companies to conquer through the week together with myself and so my team so that was wildly popular so after a few years into that we said let's do something for cmo's so for the eighth year with pulling cmo's together to kind of make sense of and it's a leadership kind of intervention.

"Confused. Let me take you back steps. You haven't heard of stephen football club right. Well neither had we but we realized that even though there at the bottom of england's fourth division they were going to appear in the same video game all the expensive players are going to be and that's when almost two years ago we decided to sponsor stevenage because if we put our logo on their real shirt we would definitely have our logo in the game. Introducing the stevenage challenge gamers across the world immediately started choosing stevenage signing the best players to our team and playing with them for every goal they shared on twitter. You'll be gave them rewards the news. The gaming community by storm the best game stevenage. They had burger king as their sponsor all lawrence on my god football food. What could possibly be better. It's just like that are small team. In real life turned into the biggest team online so gamers chose the best players in the world to play for stevenage sports. It's in the flame that when that was one of our biggest winners in cam and took three going great and as a site together with a window is was the biggest biggest win is estelle jim. I think we're gonna guess. Yeah i want to ask gary v who hasn't chat but it hasn't come on the screen yet gary v y. What do you think. Why did this win. A grand prix. Why the jury love it. Why do you love it if you love it. Hi everybody thank you so much. There's so many of you here. Chad is a lot of fun. I love it. And i am big. Shout out to some of the people in the chat referencing it. I mean my favorite thing is underpriced attention. It's how i think of everything. It's why i struggle with so many of the rules bar industry. Because i don't think we think in those terms i think we think an overpriced attention to be honest And so this was just incredibly thoughtful arbitrage of actual consumer behavior not industry talk. I'm obsessed with obsessed with creativity. But i'm sure even from stephen jim down a lot of it can be fluff for actual human stuff. This is one of the big games in the world the logo was going to be seen in perpetuity and then they also supported it. They knew that the deal was good. Because of the arb- which is just brilliant but then the fact that they also created more layers to not just on that which would have been enough to be probably success for what they invested but they created the social component textbook. Ironically one of the reasons. I'm very bullish on that. Fte's is from farm bill to feta to to say i've watched gaming dynamics play out with skins and other things of that nature. So it's a it's a fun tie into a lot of things we're going to be talking about today but for me personally because it's actually consumer centric not subject to opinions around the video. Also gary v. Hey jackie woodward in the house with bojangles. Jackie are you around right here. Yeah you're in. You're in the category. So what do you think about this work. What do you think about gary said. What are the what are the principles you think that are driving had was resonant among consumers. Well i also reinforce the world cup for mcdonald's in the ninety s and early two thousands. So i can only imagine what they must've thought I agree with gary on all points. I mean i think it's so consumer centric so ideas driven snow clever and really drove to the product as well which is also i think important. You know that every time you put. It posted a goal on twitter. You gotta free hamburger so it wasn't just about being in the game. It was also about connecting back to the restaurants. Which is you know. Part of all of our jobs is driving not just awareness that growth. So i really thought it was a brilliant activation and and and i'm envious alright steve. Hey back to you for the last word. I joined lions back in two thousand five. When you see some of these win my always my. I always always a simple idea. I coulda done that. You know what i mean. And and he just seems such an easy. An easy thing to do doesn't it. But that's the genius of the agency that we back on this david. You know they make it. Look super impo. But that's you know darin lies. The beauty of what creative agency can can bring value to a brand that steve letham from ken. Lions giving us the big picture of the festival this year after the break.

Movie Musical 'Annette' Is a Straightforward Story yet a Directorial Fever Dream
"Opera. Annette got this year's Cannes Film Festival off to a boisterous start. The crowd gave a full five minute ovation for stars Adam Driver and Marianne Cockatiel, also for the band Sparks, which composed the music. Our critic Bob Mondello, says that the festival audience going crazy kind of make sense because the film itself is kind of deranged. Before there's anything to look at on screen and there will be astonishing things to look at. We hear the voice of director Leos Carax telling us that he intends what we are about to see to be literally breath taking. Breathing will not be tolerated during the shell. So please take a deep last breath right now. Thank you, And then he gathers his cast. So may we start and they sing their way out of the recording studio. So may we start and into the streets of Los Angeles to start a story of odd couple, Henry and Anne entertainers of radically different temperaments. Henry calls himself the shape of God and stops the comedy club stage. I'm here to make you laugh tonight. A green hooded bathrobe, scowling and muttering at his audience. Yes, laugh laugh. Wow, I'm not sure I can do it tonight. I'm not sure I should. Even trying Making people laugh is, uh, disgusting. He means that alienating paying customers is his stick and has played almost psychotically by Adam Driver. Henry is good enough it insulting patrons. It's amazing. He still has any. But on this night, his rant includes the confession that he's gotten engaged to a far classier celebrity who's played by Marianne Courtyard. No, this ain't a joke so far. Yes, and different throw stuff. What's wrong, Lady and in me, you disagree. Why is she too Perfect. Yes, I and I some loads some insect. Okay, I'll accept that

He keeps the fashion industry on. Its toes is the way i'll put it.

I instagram and he looked at the best fucking time in the world. He wore some insane. Looks which will let him talk about. But he's also not afraid to like talk a little shit about racism in the industry and discrimination and the inequitable treatment of black and brown influencers which is prevalent.

It's an old trope of theirs anyway. It's explained to the listeners. Okay who semi hayes are. Hey and what faceless knockoff controversy. Absolutely so this is something that i'm personally interested in as a brand founder. Someone that has worked at a brand that has been knocked off has been accused of knocking other people off. And just a knockoff game. I just find very interesting. I don't think anybody really does it with bad intentions. I've just always curious to see people's reactions. When they feel like one of their holy grail products has been knocked off by another brand. Okay back to the new straits. Semi hayes are twins. they're sister twins. They are part of the l. a. Children of rich people. But now there're famous influencers because they can afford to live the type of aspirational lifestyle where they don't have to work but they're always up to something you'll kinda like bratz dolls. Yes i think. I mean again. I hold no judgment but they do have like the l. a. new face kind of look and i don't think that the denied i it's. It's clear that they've got no jobs. And they have very obvious lip filler and such say it looks bad constructed new versions of themselves themselves right exactly and they are very prolific content creators or always doing photo shoots and they are always dressed in an outfit matches the environment that they're in that matches their sisters outfits but they're twins so they're not exactly same outfits but it's all very stylized. They brand themselves as a duo. See hayes so see me hayes. The phrases referring to the duo of twins day launched a makeup line and it is basically stick her eyeliner lines.

"Have a role in that in a couple of you'll the five criteria that you mentioned the beginning you've mentioned audience and i was interested in the assumptions made on the part of the people. Doing the work of the audience Again one of the the running trends is sort of almost paranoia about the aging audience for various certain sports and bears times. But did you sense that concern of trying to reach new young audiences. Jen's said compensations mean definitely. You can tell the priority for brands in half. They're actually doing that. And what that focuses in terms of audience identification and have been kind of boop programs. Randall i think one of the best possible is the fact that has broad and kind of varies may demographic i think as we looked at some of the best work that came out all the gaming world. I think you started to be able to talk to how that existed in a different sphere and a different platform. And i think stephen each was a perfect example of that targeting a younger audience targeting Dimas in essence and this was a why our insert himself into a game through the world of sport Brilliant absolutely brilliant direct campaign targeted campaign in very specific audience. In that in that guys. And i think you know the role that gaming continues to play and we will continue to play in kind of younger audiences is going to be vital for brains. So gaming has its own. Criteria is judging panel. Is that right now. Gaming from actually to ace bullets comes on the sports so that there is the ability for it to entering a number of categories. So you could do. Pr stunts full gaming. But actually when we looked at the principles of of a sports it sits under the school had agree So as we looked at that there were specific ton of gaming criteria but also have gaming was used in different april so one of one of the elements we had was Sport for good brilliant pace of work by greenpeace actually in there and of cold endangered streamers and the focus of that was actually agreeing attention to some the wildlife that we're really kind of saying dwindling in numbers in the amazon and had i could actually drive away in against a in younger audience and not only drive away in this but again why was significantly rewarded on was the fact that they're actually used a traditional gaming function of driving donations to your Through twitch fate but actually to do that to raise money for greenpeace another question on audience which is not about age. But it's about filter bubble and it's broader than spor guy just interested in your view in terms of the one of the criticisms of of the marketing industry is that it's very ab- it's trendy. Urban people in particular sort of social bubble social media who increasing the work that then it goes out to people who don't live in that world and they have no no real relationship is the brexit. Argument is the trump argument. Thirty one hundred times in terms of we're all living arran. Social media driven bubbles and the advertising and market research industry doesn't know the people with doesn't live with the people it's serving or trying to reach. Is there any evidence of that. Within the seven hundred of the category you know just the just the the brewers sweep of stuff that you'll see. Yeah i think there's evidence of that all around the world to be honest. I think it's one of the elements that it's wide. Diversity isn't just a an inclusive consideration. it's actually a business decision or why you actually become better and more functioning businesses with a greater diversity of of staff and i think that's a challenge for all of us to be able to drive that because you truly do make better woke when you consider the different kind of at audience. In ways of thinking of a happens i would say it's i think it's remarkable that we've got an example like You know the team out of brazil producing a work from finland around an olympics juxtaposition. I think that's that comes from dog. This level of thinking. That wouldn't happen if you had the same people sitting in a box from all around the world designed life and looked at saint problems in the same way and that's creativity at its core is problem solving in a different way. It's looking at the world through a different set of parameters and. I think that it's hard to know from the work that you say. What's being built through kind of diverse thinking. What hasn't but i i would be. Has it against the best work. Do by increasing douglas teams. Yeah no i. I i can see what sign now. I wonder if again it's it's beyond the rim of this that there is a bigamy that thinks the brazilian advertising agency has more in common with the new york agency in the london. Eight people in it than it does with with other people in brazil potentially and that's that's an industry that's industry challenger when we look at like the on creative advertising industry how we looking at asheville to be able to grow that kind of pool of diversity in our teens howie grading environments that are truly inclusive and not just that on the wall but actually leaving in breathing that inking at looks like and and the truth is that i think you we will never know that from an outside perspective from a judging specked you but i think over the longer term. The proof in the woods will be absolutely parrot because that creativity has to be driven from a pool of diverse. Did you get sense of politics coming through here. What an ease of avert political campaigns are wondering whether we can characterize the sort of cousteau's my again my sense is is probably as sort of liberal leaning. Like i think in the predominant road again when we look at what. The world's pain through over the last eighteen months. I think that sports played a very strong view. And kind of social justice at looks like so i think the work really replicated that think would be fair to say that they would be quite liberal thinking around along the work and therefore the work brands doing in the space and using sport as a platform to be able to highlight that nothing that he's one of the the sport is to be able to help drive and shift opinion change and and that's why we probably say that topic thinking right just to finish off push push us into the future. Hey how's it going to revolve. So he said it's probably the second stroke third year of the sports category. So you got a lot of people in your listenership of unofficial is made up of people who either want their work in there or they want to know how to engage with this process or they become a jog joe. What's get an idea of of. How is.

We gave them rewards the news to the gaming community by storm. The game piece stevenage. They have burger king as sponsor all lawrence. My god football food. What could possibly be better. Okay so let's just pick a couple of your favorites. Then you mentioned a couple there. I've got a couple of ones that i really i really loved the seller. Twenty thirty two. Just the idea. Research jong. And i wrote this in the newsletter last week what i liked about it is it starts with the obvious purpose at the center of it and then it's entertaining is quite often. When you start with purpose it can be ready worthy and boring. And i really really like the way they just. The idea is strong embolden. You know. I think that that works. What do you think too. It's probably the pace of work. That is most jealous to be honest at as you start to watch. I think that's always a great sign of an amazing piece of work. When you wish that you guys have created yourselves but remarkable pace of work from start to finish. I think you're right. The idea itself in the way that they use the olympics. Is this kind of notion of kind of equality and fairness and really a social drive and then kind of juxtaposed through parody around. You know what's happening in the world in the social constructive climate change in the role that we have as individuals to cut a tyke action so those a huge win as pace of it it then went deeper than that and actually had an action plan around that that was into tightening. It wasn't just the way we can shoot him information. And i think that was a really k point for us was that we talk a lot on the jewelry about progress repulsively and the way that you could actually frame that. It wasn't just gay campaigns and scare tactics. this was actually showing a positive spin on the how you can actually high lot. Some of the huge challenges with going through in society spoiled often does but but do that in a way that can make us laugh and smile and ultimately take action the craft and that audio was brilliant black. I'm not sure if the debt of everything that i went into an but for instance the merchandise range that produced the back of it is something you would quite happily go in touch and way. It's remarkable in its design itself the on the mascot. They've developed when you understand and you do a little bit more background research that the name of it actually Would for somma inside this s these little at every little turn thought of something and it just keeps you interested for so long. it's just. It's just epic as interesting. 'cause the quite often the idea once he goes beyond the creative the media end of the creativity quite often. It feels like an add on. Are we in the dreaded sort of ladder up and down phrase and we're gonna have to add stuff to this idea but it didn't feel like that i guess it didn't feel lucky was just. They were making things just to to extend the idea great. I think this is a great lesson. In creativity doesn't just come in the concept in fights and coming up with the idea comes in the execution as well and that you can't let that stop like that was something good at every twist and turn of something else and was able to steal khanna cape you interested and i think that's that's the sign of a good ide- it's one. Gets you engaged in interested in the first place and then it keeps you. They and that's remarkable. We should say that it's house of lapland. The africa dvd sao paulo as one of your your point earlier about work out brazil. That's come from a brazilian. It has had inc Brazilian agency cold africa working in finland kind of producing the outset. It's certainly pulls together things from around. The world societies a grand prix for brazil which in the sports marketing world. That's it that's an awesome achievement. Okay any other will others delight cut. I think this this to other places that come to mind. Just the top of the head. But there's loads of them. I think you start with the other grown preview. Would it being total ron and that was a pace by isaacs. That again familiar. Another example the footwear brands a huge playas. Obviously in the world of sports marketing but they.

Interview With Trey Haley
"Hey, guys welcome to the black GRONER's podcast. I'm your host lying and as you probably guessed. Unless? You've been hiding from it. We're still in the Kobe nineteen. We're still hanging out in the pandemic. Times out of ten, you're probably trying to figure out what you're going to watch on the streaming service. You know what movies are out right now and at the same time things are being canceled and push bag. But every once in a while, you can find like a little project, a little indie project this last through that, you can check out the me wouldn't have got the tension in the past and the past Hollywood because reinventing these days. It's all. Got Me thinking I'm like well Andy Andy Projects `Dinu thing now for Hollywood can be a new formula for how Hollywood Cannes film because they're used to the smaller budgets and used to make things work. But you have to take my word for it I. Do have an expert with me today. My guest today is Indie director Trey Haley and he's has had quite the influence on bt plus if you see where I'm going with that. He also has a series, the family business, always a bridesmaid which features the visa which you guys know by the way is going to be bad woman. So I, had the in my head to point that out straight and his his my favorite project of his at ease erected is called note to self. It's like a really cute romance movie like I don't know if you guys are check this out as Christian keyes Letroy. Lucky I just it's. So it's so I love I didn't know I didn't know you directed this trey and I decided to get shot because that's one of my favorites. Thank you. Thank you. You're welcome. Go ahead I'll. I'll let you take talking to know enough I just want to keep you up here. Appreciates you. Thank you for having me on and. Yet notice we shut that several years ago on actually Christian actually wrote that moving Christian keys actually real. Wow. Okay. So that was cool. When you know like you said, Eva was evil Pickford and I mean, that was a really fun movie to do that was Yeah. It looked like a lot of fun like I was always wanted like so you never know I guess and I'll get we'll. Get hopefully we can get a little secrets from you and and how you've got an industry but you never know when you're going to get another one of those projects but to me it was so cute I would have wanted a second one but you never know what's going on you know with that kind of stuff and you know that world and Hollywood and everything right? Right? No No, you know That wind just it was just that one note to self. Really what? Part to ever really created for it but right right Sometimes, we get the part to sometimes it's just like you know it's like even always a bridesmaid people keep asking. Is there going to be a part of this? You know no Yvette Nicole Brown wrote that movie and that. She's now. Made her thing we we should make our to we'll let you know what would Yeah Right. But yeah. So yeah, that's cool. But yeah. So you have a lot of a lot of products going, which is really dope because you kind of like I think it's really cool. your career by the way when I was researching because you, you're kind of you're kind of under the radar but not necessarily like your hat and stuff. It's just Hollywood had this weird way of like surveys out there as we know yeah, yeah. It's it's one of those things I think as we continue to go. Yeah we like let the work speak for itself. You know a lot right now what we do, they see what we do. We also consider ourselves in indy studio in meaning like we you know from locations to our resources out here in Los Angeles to the relationships we have with distributors in allowing ourselves to be positioned to where we still have ownership within our property that we create and collaborate with networks or distributors where we both owned The property together you know like. Fifty or or licensing deals where we bring in the capital two so that we have some crew you know more creative. Input into what we're making so that we'd contrite or read about the Dome of these projects is well. And do you feel guess going on what I was off the top? Do you feel because I feel in my opinion any projects could kind of give a rollback or or blueprint for how they could go about filming. 'cause I know everybody's been question is how are they going to finish a lot of these TV shows? You know how they're gonNA finish she's movies because you guys correct me if I wrong with you guys deal with on a daily basis. Okay. Budgets. How am I going to get this done with this little better? You know these amount of actors yeah. Yeah Yeah we look like we we always say we. We do our best to quality you know every new project, we just make sure we're growing and building and building level. We can make sure that are actors are excited about working but the big thing for us is given people rolls that they don't often get. As one of our things, you know when we cast, we look for opportunities to give people unique. Like we say, Hey, will you know what this person may be interested in his role because they've never done this before you know right earl instead of looking at somebody and say they will never do it. They may actually do it because they've never done it before it's kind of like the Halle Berry scenario with monster's ball right nobody. Yeah. That role because she was at the time is far will you know obviously, they didn't even consider her it first for this, but then our passion to play something. So different. Placed her into this situation. So it's a of actors here that are just always been putting by. So doing the same thing, you see them doing those same. Sometimes, they always win the same role. What's not good that they just want to do the same role that's what they're being presented to him. A lot of times will right take you flip it say, Hey, I know you do that. That's your bread and butter, but here's a scenario. May We pay half of what you get. But right right. But it now is going to show you the value. Is it for you something different so now you can walk away from this people can say, wow, I never see this person like that before which explain exactly. So it's about also giving people adding value that's what our world collaborative company we love like whether it's behind the scenes in front of scenes we're always in collaboration and making sure we have a win win scenario with everybody we work with but then when this covert scenario as you were saying. It's also about. You know we're we're about to go back into filming at the end of the month and.

Coronavirus and Hollywood - TV production shut down, some movies shift to streaming
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter. I should say joining me from home. Our respective homes. We are not the same home I want to say first of all that our hearts go out to everyone in the entertainment industry is getting so badly hurt in everyone generally but you know this is the business and the Hollywood breakdown in Hollywood has been dramatically impacted by the ongoing crisis. But we are going to also talk about The state of this business because For everyone who is now at risk and not working. The future of the business is of course of huge importance We have seen as you know Matt. Many many cancellations were talking Cannes Film Festival has finally succumbed that to the reality that they cannot hold the event. This year A lot of people are wondering what is going to become of the TV production season which is now on hold as a shutdown. I mean people can still meet and right. Virtually but production is a huge challenge. And then another question that will address as quickly as how why you aren't going to see big movies available for you on demand but I met one you One eight you sort of fill us in on the state of play with the TV business. Well it's interesting because the production of television is all shutdown so you're going to start to see delays in shows that were either not finished or were not even shot yet for instance. Fargo the new season Fargo was supposed to Premiere April. That has been moved to Some time indefinite down the line because they just didn't finish your two episodes left. There are sixty broadcast pilots that are were in various stages of production early stages of production. Mostly those of all been put on hold and the thinking is if this delay lasts until may maybe early June some of the broadcast pilots would be able to shoot and be green lit for series and get on in the fall but if we go any further than that thinking is that the fall season with all the sudden become the January season and there will be tons of repercussions for the television advertising industry from that Beyond that you know the one thing that is continuing as you mentioned is writing and a lot of these shows that had been green lit and have been given the go ahead for. Writers rooms are now meeting via zoom or other ways of getting together. So you're going to see a lot of scripts being stockpile just because people can write them but they just can't shoot them. Meanwhile from the consumer point of view you know the the networks are trying to make some adjustments to make things available that you know that any kind of create events so that people are watching something at the same time and have a sense of community. Hallmark is having a Christmas marathon That you know there are. Disney dropped frozen to more than a month earlier than planned on Disney. Plus as you know. Matt it is not so easy to a lot of people say why won't studios released new movies on and some of them are Sony and is doing it with bloodshot than the Vin Diesel. Movie which had a very abbreviated theatrical run and an universalist doing it with several movies including Emma and The invisible man and the hunt and most notably trolls but this is barely van dated it. It is not a solution that is a thing really for the movie business. As you know Matt Yeah I mean. This is a cost benefit analysis that each studio is doing now because the primary distribution method for these films movie theaters are now closed. So what do you do when the movie theaters are closed? We either find another solution to get it distributed right now or you wait and what we're seeing happening is that there is a class of film. Mid Budget lower budget that the studios are deciding to or some studios are deciding to put online make available for pay per view and digital download now and then there is a threshold over which the movies are simply being moved. And you're seeing this mostly with bigger budget movies like fast and furious nine and the minion sequel which was pushed from July into an indeterminate. Date so I think what we're GONNA see. More DELAYS AS THIS CRISIS GROWS. And then you're going to see lower budget films make it onto digital platforms and just to be clear. It's not at all certain that studios can recoup even their costs when they do this. This is a as one analyst. Put IT IT'S A. It's a sort of a policy of despair strategy of despair and and Desperation rather than a real strategy going forward however could reshape. How people consume entertainment when Finally subsides thank you

Do I Recommend Soy Foods For Boys?
"Was really excited when add instagram. Which is at. Uk is nutrition? If you're not following me there yet you asked me this very question. And that's why I'm about to share this topic with you. You but really interested when I spoke about soya which is a high quality protein meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids and he can link into the previous episodes which talks about what are the best plant based protein to give your child who refuses meet and then of course we'd spoke about soy and he said to me. Is it okay to give soy two boys? So that's what we're going to uncover today. Soy Foods are still feared by parents. Simply because of the uncertainty around how the phytochemicals especially the eyes of Levin's behave insurance bodies. There was a previous lab and animal base studies that sort of fear mongering and hinder the reputation of soy foods. So today we're going to discuss the latest evidence and whether you should avoid or embrace soy foods for a boy but I won I saw foods. And what does so we actually have in it? So soy foods made from soybean planned which are from the P family they are unique mentioned before they contain all nine essential amino acids like animal foods and although plant proteins on nutritious. It does pay to know which plan foods are the best sources of proteins for Children. Who refused meat? So you do want to link back to that previous episode if interest in that topic soy foods. Undoubtedly a nutritious food for kids as they provide good proteins. They provide the such a great source of fiber on and some other B vitamins and zinc. But what really set soy foods? Apart from other plant foods is the presence of i-if Levens sounds good so far right but the potential harm from soy foods I came into question in the nineteen forties when breathing problems in sheep particularly female sheep who were fed a kind of clover that was high. In ice of Lebanon's was first noted and this was when the biological effects of is AFL. Were scrutinized a little bit more closely against volatility. Now you're probably wondering is eleven so if you have a good idea or ready. Let's just look at that a little bit more closely. So soy foods are the main dont resources of i-if Levens for us. They are termed as finer easterns and they have a chemical structure that that is very similar to the human hormone estrogen. Its well established. That in the human body is of Lebanese. Do not behave in the same way. As the you know human form of Easter regions. They are a lot weaker. They only have effects on some tissues of the body and some situation they actually have the opposite effect eastern. So for that reason I would go ahead and recommend soy foods for a boy but I'm going to explain to you wine now. Back in the nineteen eighty s. There were more further damaging findings that surface. The Cheetah's who are fed is of Levin Rich Soy foods in North American zoos experienced a decline inferred Tilleke and two case studies were also published where men experienced problems with fertility. How ever many look through these case studies they consumed honey doses of soy foods and soy is of Levens and followed a relatively unbalanced died so despite these high initial Cannes says a soy is of Florence may have east region like activity a collection of much bigger. Larger Good Quality Clinical Studies. Now show that. Soy Foods actually don't negatively impact on reproductive hormones in men. If you want surprised by that just remember that. These previous lab study showed that saw is of Lebanese do bind and activate to these eastern receptors but the potency is at least ten thousand times less compared to our bodies version of eastern and also. What that means is that song is of Lebanon's are broken down and metabolize and it behaves differently in human bodies. He can't really compare animal. Studies to humans and the lab studies or experiments have use really high doses. Appeal is a flagrant which you gain. You just can't use those lab findings and compare them to human outcomes. I hope that's reassuring for you so if you ask me. The question is soya healthy for boys that short on Z's Yes soy proteins on rich in high quality protein that good source of fiber and there was a habit addition of vitamins and other minerals. Likes think as above soy foods are really safe for boys and men to enjoy as we've spoken about but if you are unsure or you're wanting to just have a genuine discussion and a check of your child's nutrition than Daego had and book that free initial consultation with me. What about the other benefits of eating soy foods so soy foods aren't thought to be beneficial in quite a variety of quite large areas of how it could be beneficial for bone health that are good quantity studies showing that those who regularly eat soy foods? A much stronger bones and are less likely to experience fractious so if foods could also protect you for heart from heart disease because of course. Oy was a naturally low in unsaturated fats at the type of fat. That is more protective for your heart and is less likely to influence the bad cholesterol. Also known as ldl cholesterol so it helps keep that you know the type of Aldea that may be not so good for heart in the normal end of the range. He can also reduce menopausal hot flashes. A great news for women Consuming forty milligrams from is of Lebanese daily. Which is equivalent to two glasses of soya. Milk or hundred grams of Sawyer. Men's could help reduce hot flashes frequency by twenty percent and the severity by nearly a third. That's great news. Additionally women when they are experiencing menopause they do have a higher risk of heart disease. It's almost doubled. And the consuming food is going to be protected or benefit women in two ways of reducing risk of hot flushes or reduce the symptoms of hot flushes. Should I say and also help reduce your risk of heart disease? There's more good information in the menopause. Food Factsheet Search. Just click on the blog post. That I'm good link in the show notes and it'll be defined factually not way also in terms of cancer which I know is very topical and is linked with soy foods. The benefits could be that you could actually experience reduced cancer risk. Although this is not in a confirmed in findings there is some suggestions that those who do benefit from reduced risk of cancer of those people who have had soy food children's as young children in adolescence so eating soy foods in some really doesn't increase your risk of cancer however please do not take any. Soy is a flavin supplements. Stick to eating real

Apple Macintosh "1984" ad - January 22, 1984
"Today it was January. Twenty second nineteen eighty four apple introduced. Its new Macintosh computer in an ad during the super bowl though the apple all too I released in nineteen seventy seven was super successful. It was being outclassed. Apple released the Lisa a personal computer. Would they graphical the user interface and mouse in early. Nineteen eighty-three but the computer was expensive at ten thousand dollars and it had other drawbacks. That made it less less than appealing. The macintosh project began in the late. Nineteen seventies at the same time the Lisa was under development apple employee Jef Raskin askin aimed to create an affordable. EASY TO USE Computer Steve Jobs. The CO founder of Apple took notice of the project. The Macintosh was envisioned. Eh less expensive than the Lisa but still powerful and accessible to the average user apple announced the Macintosh one. Twenty eight K.. To the press in October of nineteen eighty-three into one January. Twenty second nineteen eighty four. The Macintosh was introduced to Super Bowl. Viewers in a commercial known as nineteen eighteen. Eighty four advertising agency. Shaya Day created the AD. Lee clow was the creative director. Steve Hayden was the COPYWRITER. Her and Brent. Thomas was the art director. The AD was shot in one week in cost about five hundred thousand dollars. Steve Jobs loved it but the Board Board of directors was not impressed by the commercial but apple ran with it anyway. The commercial ran once in December of nineteen eighty-three in the late night. Spot in Twin Falls Idaho and was screened before previews in movie theaters. But the Super Bowl spot was its most famous showing release. Scott Director Director of the science fiction films alien and Blade. Runner directed the commercial in the sixty second commercial. A woman carrying a sledge hammer runs through a dystopia landscape landscape inspired by George. Orwell's nineteen eighty-four televised. Big Brother like figure is lecturing a room full of workers when the runner throws does the sledgehammer at the image. The commercial ends with the following text in voiceover on January. Twenty Fourth Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh ties. And you'll see why nineteen eighty-four won't be like Nineteen eighty-four. The woman is interpreted as symbolizing apple and the big brother figure S. representing IBM Essentially Apple Saves the masses from an IBM dominated future. The commercial got a lot of attention and won and several awards including the Grand Prize at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. The commercial is recognized as one of the most memorable in super bowl history. You
Spike Lee is first black person to lead Cannes Film Festival jury
"So just a little recap the SAG awards were handed out last night in LA so the south Korean film parasite made history for its win for best ensemble the film while winning this still the awards were still criticized for its lack of diversity which is a big conversation that's happening you might have heard of the Oscar so white hashtags back in the headlines again the entire Best Director category this year is made primarily up of white guys the acting categories a pretty way to know Jennifer Lopez for hustler is no Lupita nyong'o who's hurting us no one from dolomite is my name this left a lot of critics prize discouraged at the lack of representation then at the Cannes Film Festival they threw a curve ball the announce the Spike Lee is the new president of the Cannes jury he's that legendary filmmaker behind films like do the right thing and jungle fever black Klansmen now Spike Lee is the first black person to ever lead the Cannes jury and seventy three year history come back all this it's our Q. screen panel here in the studio John Semele Antena sending it right about TV movie arts and culture hi guys hello hi so this is so much going on there's so much to talk about him to start with you can give us a quick like history especially in cans okay so back in the eighties when spike was young and you know excited to show his movies to the world he won a youth prize with she's gotta have it and then he came back in nineteen eighty nine with do the right thing and it was like the front runner to win some big award but it didn't it ended up not winning not even a single prize and Spike Lee you is not so happy about that and he ended up blaming the jury presidents filmmaker them vendors and he had some price words for him it he said I have the quote right here vin had better watch out because I'm waiting for his **** somewhere deep in my closet I have a Louisville slugger bats with vendors and name on it okay so so so small and most likely was back at camp twenty eighteen with a black Klansmen here is at the press conference United States America was built upon the genocide of native people and slavery that is the fabric of the United States America as my book on brother JZ was say fax we on the right side of history with this film so I want to point out that the reason we're broke rehashing all this is because basically is as a big job can right now so John is this going to be the fact that he's leaving the jury a bit of a wake up call well as ever I'm of two minds about it I mean I would be hesitant to use being jury president of a prestigious Film Festival where everyone wears tuxedos in the south of France and some sort of bell weather for representation and diversity in Hollywood that's it it is something I mean as you said there has never been a black jury had in the history of the festival and I think that the palm d'or which this jury awards that's the price of the award it's still I would say the most prestigious award in cinema it is a way of sort of drumming up interest in a film I mean parasite which you just won't stop gushing about overflowing toilets in Paris but for you should go watch it again for the third time I think so you will I want to point out I would believe that John was the first one to like say me a Twitter DM being like Hey man you could check up and all of a sudden they do it on the for the heck say when the palm d'or which sort of started this journey that it's on now so it is certainly a way that you can generate interest in a film and I think it speaks often to a filmmaker status I think people will be watching to see what films Spike Lee finds interesting and I don't know I think he's made a lot of good films and he's made a lot of social films but I love the guy and I'm happy form I think it's like just an interesting like historically if you if you look at it historically the beef that's been going on between spike and and can you know like back in the eighties like back to do the right thing I I don't know he he had some choice words and and I don't know like it was Sally fields apparently who is like feeding him all this information about how long his victim yeah who didn't like do the right thing didn't think that like the ending was really worth it all this stuff and I guess he just didn't get the movie you know so yeah and apparently spike came out after that saying that what he said was stupid and immature and you know I guess in twenty eighteen he did when the ground pre awards black Klansman so he's I don't know ease down to three as we do the right thing I mean it's not one of the major American films ever made teen I we just talked with the spikes two thousand movie bamboozled is coming out from the criterion collection on home video I think next month a film that I think was widely misunderstood at the time I got reimagining of a minstrel show exactly it's about a sort of a TV minstrel show that someone creates a try to bomb their own career sort of a producer's plot line but it ends up becoming immensely popular film it was widely misunderstood at the time that I think is right for a re appraisal is going to get it when it comes out so I think people you know they always talk about spike Lee's films and he deserves a five but if you can imagine what can is trying to get out of putting Spike Lee as head of the jury and what's likely might be trying to get out of it are these two paths of origin what makes my cynical answer would be that they know I mean he was a kid in nineteen ninety nine he made a in quotes joke that someone should shoot Charlton Heston because he was responsible for gun violence in America you know he's called compared Clint Eastwood to a plantation owner I mean they're certainly like a level of let's say energy that spike brings that sort of my grab attention and headlines but also can would like that yes the thing can can benefit from that I mean do they do what like TMZ headlines about it's good ratings like any other organization he's a major filmmaker he's a major filmmaker major filmmakers and people at this level are who had the service but I just I just I I love what Kim had to say when they talked about you know including him as the jury had they said lease flamboyant personality is sure to shake things up like I just find the use of the word flamboyant they're kind of condescending we have yeah it applies to maybe to some of his sartorial tendencies and that's about it right if you just turning and I'm Tom how are you listening to Q. screen panel with John family and

"Goes to show how important award consideration is for even like someone like netflix who you know notoriously won't release their films in theaters ahead of time in that is prevented them from you know showing at film festivals like cannes because of you know that that unwillingness and they've always said that it's always comes down to the consumer their subscribers you know their subscribers are going to get get it i put it seems like this kind of move to me seems like it's more i in a move to you know to win some you know potentially award nominations and hoping that you know if they get nominated that will bring more subscribers to the platform what do you guys think about this like do you do you do you like half seasons like is it more managed manageable to kind of digest these seasons in that way i mean i think for something like this that's you know peter i think you're talking on the podcast yesterday about shows that are you know twenty four episodes long or something and in your older age as you get older you don't like sort of a you know devoting time to watching something like that and for a show like this where it's only you know fifteen sixteen episodes to split that in half just seems yeah unnecessary or yes to to make decision with like a business motive in mind in terms of like yes a procuring words and all of that kind of stuff so it's you know from a creative standpoint or or an audience person who's going in and trying to watch a show in i don't have a problem watching thirteen episodes in a row as long.

"No but it's one that says as you point out is really fascinating and not just so much for the abstract notion of this film's better should be here from worst wise it here but but this is a real sort of mystery to film festivals election i think the art world the idea of curation general and no festival cultivates mystery quite like the cannes film festival whose programmers are sort of as you say behind closed doors choices are a bit opaque news choices probably for the competition with the most important choices in the film world and yet why this foam and not that foam and why this film maker not that filmmaker this country not that country this gender gender all these questions are not ones that they want to answer they just put it out there and leave it to us to judge so full night just just to at the movie celebrating we're we've been collaborating with the fortnight for several years now in fact some of our theatric releases we've picked up to release both in the uk and the us have premiered at the four nine they're they're really close to our hearts and spirit the sort of alternative spirit i mean i wouldn't want to analogize movie to what they're doing but we like to think of ourselves movies that were not the big platform we're trying to do something more using credit specialized unique and exciting for the audience rather than are standardized and and so it was a natural partnership to work with them and we've shown highlighted many of their films on movie over the years but specifically for the fiftieth anniversary we're partnering with.

"Yeah we stands for the director's fortnight and this year is the fiftieth addition and which is been a cause for celebration and they've had lots of their kind of old alumni involved in making a daily fanzine and people like jim jarmusch and namco say no less doing playlists for them as we're waiting the film's jarmusch playlist at i think it was eight thirty am this morning eric being rookie was great so at maybe you are you're in a partnership with the kansan and you're celebrating its fifty th anniversary as a frequent festival wise the cans n important sure a great question and i think maybe just take a step back for a second you were saying it's a separate strand and i think one of the things that many people lovers festival followers don't really realize about kansas people say the cannes film festival can chew what they're talking about several different entities that happened at the same time in the town of canada the main thing that thinks about the red carpet the competition that's as you say the official selection which has many sub components out of competition section this the opening closing night films there's a ken classics which are restored prints or dc ps classics homes in certain regard section there's all these subsections and so forth but in the same city at the same time there's three separate festivals that are technically unrelated entirely too can which is so baffling it's like it's it's unique idea to come to this city and attend a festival at actually tending many festivals if you.

"In this movie undoes that early says that's not what it's about it's also about a well because pose whole story line is stopped going off on your on it being a hero your fucking it up or other storylines a door that way well that's and that's to the movies on inconsistency but there is there are some strongpoints the movie makes that to me stand opposite to everything services stood for coming up to now sir i'm one of these heroes one is that the force for the right people the force will help them out and to me i think that's a pretty strongly to religion in general to the extent that oh the smugglers in in the prison cell he had the the girl with the right shaped necklace made at the cannes like a a conducive material was there exactly when he needed it for them to open the door and so much of that says oh the forces embraced you and your under its protection it's guiding these steps you're going some where you need to go a oh by the way all your friends are gonna die because he just happened to be the wrong person so in that sense it's also kind of saying that even if you're good for if you're good person and things seem to be going right for you that doesn't mean that the forces behind it or that it's all to a plan you know yet i completely agree lines hayes in free will in one way but also it's very upsetting for people that like to believe the galaxy or the universe or even our lives are are being attended to by some larger power also so the problem is is that is and this is what actually what i wanna from this movie was that i wanted the movie to address the fact that the force isn't black or white it is not one side or the other it's gray and uh they've they've address that in the colom wars a number of times there's a really cool thing that's like a three episode art in the cold war's he should watch uh that's of idle i know i know again this these are things that nobody else had very popular uh but right but regardless as full like i was hoping that the movie would address.

"I first saw the unknown girl last year at the cannes film festival an event where the dardenne brothers are basically rockstars' they have twice won the top prize the pom door for their films rosetta and low fall and they rarely leave the festival's awards ceremony emptyhanded but the reactions to the unknown girl were uncharacteristically disappointing and the dr dens citing the mixed reviews decided to trim the film by seven minutes before theatrical release truth be told i didn't notice much of a difference when i view the new cut last month and in any event i don't think a slight shift in running time could solve the movies problems or obliterate its very real virtues with its vividly inhabited world of industrial buildings and nondescript departments the unknown girl is as persuasive in it's realism as any of the darden's earlier works if there's a reason it doesn't earn a place among their masterpieces it's because the directors in making their first fullon genre peace have ironically neutralized the element of surprise forcing their usual ethical query into the structure of a whodunnit the darden's have emerged with a narrative that as compelling as it is can also feel prosaic and even a bit predictable especially in the overly aggressive melodrama of the closing scenes some might further question the effectiveness of a movie that frames a harrowing story of black immigrants suffering from a perspective of white liberal guilt though i would counter that the sense of moral impotence and the desire to be rid of it is the movies true subject.
