And how you got started in this. We wanna know where you've been the places you've been some of the messages you received in how it all comes together. How does this work for you. Well you know. I actually i discovered well. It started when i was four years old. My father passed away when i was to. My mom remarried and moved us to our new home. When four. And i guess i don't know humor's few months up to forget because i was so young but my deceased father came to see me. I woke up to my dad father and certain screwy. Daddy's here daddy's here so after that is it. I had every spirit in two hundred mile radius like coming in my house now and they weren't nice. Yeah so you got some bad ones. show up. you didn't have like your normal friendly ghost or anything like what you know since it's halloween. I'm gonna use casper is an analogy kind of show up and was your friend at these. Were these were nasty. Wants that showed up. Yeah yeah they were. They were They were trying to scare me. Don't still don't know the reason. Why dishes nasty ones in the world. And i've encountered them through my investigations but it they were invading dream. They were They were mimicking my mom's voice and they would wake me up in the middle night calling me with my mom's voice and walk in the dark looking for my mom like it. Sound like she was in trouble. I'm walking in the dark. And i would wake like i would find myself at the edge of the stairs. They were trying to get me to fall down stairs to the point that they didn't happen but they were invading dreams where they were making me believe that i could fly downstairs so they wanted me to hurt myself. That didn't work. of course. So you know they were horizons being grabbed and my whole family encountered like you know the intensity of the spirits throughout the house. But they couldn't see them like good. That was crazy. So i mean we're not now you said some of these were pretty nasty or mean spirits. Were they doing. I would say more aggressive than what you normally encounter one watching tv. My family you know in the family room and i was sitting my dad's reclining chair so i'm gonna reclining chairperson. I got pushed off that chair into the wall in front of my whole family. I've had them grants me. Where i had wealth so my body. I'm still young kid how to it was just. It was scary but you know. I started getting angry. I'm i'm pretty tough. I'm sicilian so you know. I'm not putting up with this. This was more physical violence type stuff that they were doing. Yes yes album. I know my sister's talking about my one sister was grab the ankle. It wasn't that they could see them. When you could feel it you can feel a heaviness and how she felt something. Dad was there. You always fell. You'll be watched and we were. We were being watched. Because you know the one guy that will come to see me toll thin man that would just you know what my escape was my brother's room. If when i send my brothers from this thing would just I would hear walking and it would stand in front of the door. It wouldn't cross the threshold but at stanford enjoy may can hear breathing and for some reason it can never crossed the threshold of this room. I still do not know why. And i really have to look into spam so busy now. That was my only safe spot. I encountered encounter. Really dancey thing what. Excuse me but a what did that do for you. As far as spiritually as far as your belief system in not only the paranormal but into spirituality itself well you know. I was raised catholic not hardcore catholic church but i believe in god and jesus you know and he puts on so felt i had the power of god and i was protected by god and jesus. So that's you know plus being sicilian protecting so. I think it was going. I think anyone if you hear stories of young psychic mediums like you know That show that was on with chip. Coffey did with the with the young mediums. They all encountered it at a young age and they also just carry it. They will all right exactly now. Let me ask you what your brother spiritual or was he did he. Nothing like that. So you're still like obvious reason why nothing actually went into his room. Yeah i really don't know why i think it was. I think it's a belief system. I was just watching Practical magic i. I love love the one part where she explained to the guy. You know the the cop.

"Egginton's is a cute little breakfast. Place we've got some neat restaurants on the east side like fire rock in wyoming ill. Those are all local and on the west side. Silver fox so i would say that's one of my favorites and that's good. That's what you would expect from wyoming fair when you come to wyoming right and so you're kind of this is a good segue. We always love talking about food. You've mentioned some good restaurants. I imagine this could just be my perception. But i imagine a good steak is pretty easy to find in casper right yes you would typically think that that would be our mo would be go to agree steakhouse and we do have the. We have class like super good but anxiety. I think per capita. We have more tien chinese restaurants so people who live here want to eat thai and chinese visitors thank god they want the big old steak so okay. Well that's good to see. That's that's why we do the show right there. That's perfect while other. Are there any local dishes that are unique to the area that people from like you know. The south like me should try when we come to casper. I almost hate to tell you this one. Because i don't want to run out like it's so good so there's probably a ton but the one that i speak to you that i think is very simple. Delightful is they have Bacon knots at silver fox and they're like brown sugar candied strips of bacon tied at so. If you just wanna have a delightful mess in your mouth. It is big. That's for sure so good so i would say it's those. I'm sure there's a ton of others that that's on. That comes to mind for me. Awesome well and you've already touched on this. This may be kind of repetitive. But again talking about history. How do you recommend families trying to learn about. The history of the area could be museums but there could be landmarks that you know that are worth stop..

"It's also fun to talk about. Towns that actually have four seasons here in the south we have to real seasons and then there's there's like sixteen others that lasts about a day including fall. There's false fall anyway. But can you talk about the personality of casper as as the seasons change absolutely and i don't i love this place but i do understand that. Sometimes the season can happen in about ninety seconds. I have to authentic and honest when i represent this place as well sometimes we zoom right past spring we zoom right fastball. However somewhere in the middle really amazing. Thanks. so what are the things i love. Most we can start with summer. You can do obviously mountain. Biking camping hiking on casper mountain We've got some reservoirs near thirty within thirty miles of here that you can get on a boat or rent jetskis. We also host college national finals rodeo in june so i will say that week of june is one of the most vibrant in our community. So you see four hundred cowboys and cowgirls in their families and they converge on casper. They're all downtown all like animals and trucks it. It's one of the coolest times the in our community is during seeing ourselves they were very vibrant. And you know it depends. You know if you're listening if you come from a place. I wouldn't say we have extreme climate but we do have four seasons in winters can be tough so it feels like things are very alive in Accessible in the summer and if you love out direct this is a destination that you would definitely want to experience. One of the things. I think is worth mentioning is fall here in one of the things that we haven't talked yet about but we are blue ribbon waters through here which means that there's thousands of five thousand fish per square mile and.

"And i think that bleed in perpetuates a continued diverse team. His na- publicly attracts diverse. Talent as well especially if you're new to an organization. I think it's great to show people. These are relationships. I've cultivated years. The relationships do matter and for new people seeing that there's an opportunity to continue to grow and evolve with that person with that relationship throughout their career. I think in a way actually. Also very comforting. What are you in your very diverse team at casper working on now that gets you really cast. Relatively young company and the most important thing is really defining and working on the foundation and recently in the last couple of months we just launched our first brand platform and also obviously the the job in the business of creating more efficient performance of all of our marketing. And these are really. You know they're critical tactics but it's the it's building that foundation of the team of the brand of how we want to operate that will carry the brand carry casper forward in the future which kind of goes back to what we were saying in terms of durability and this is i hope it's going to be the platform for the company for for years to come and ways to connect to consumers for years to come. This is the the next evolution. I think of the brand a brand campaign desma my most exciting things to work on a in. It's cool to think about how you can launch it but it can.

"Hsen was this incredibly different but pioneering business model and this became a theme and so while even though that was the external how you would look at it on on a resume that the realities that i was really learning how to apply marketing in different types of cultures and i just observed all through the years even though these companies may have been known they were still figuring out the same things and trying to adapt and i observed that there is a fundamental difference in in a lot of these companies between flexibility and nimble. Nece which is still relevant. Today and flexibility was really what i saw more shorter term thinking lead to and companies be really proud that they were flax but it was the companies that were sitting down and talking about a year from now at where i saw that level of preparedness that when unforeseen events happened whether it was the crash of two thousand eight or the pandemic last year there was a level of durability that was built into chew those leadership teams in those organizations. And that's really what. I had found that those. The durability of the staying power are the ones that are really been able to bridge those moments of uncertainty and that's been very useful throughout my career because of all the macro events that happen during that time that's great and even applying that end goal to a brand like casper. Okay let's get casper to that point. Sure of that point of durability. I'm sure is something that you've been thinking about. And what's interesting to casper is one of the bigger newer direct to consumer brands. That have really cut through. And obviously you have a lot of experience in the retail space. How have you seen that. The overall space evolve. I'm sure that you've seen many phases of retail. What i love about being casper is that it really is a multi channel brand and so i know it gets this label of being kind of big Darling but we're sold in multiple places than we are doing that because that's where our customer is.

"Business travel how to make the experience better so again that relevance becomes the core of the job and it sounds like from what i see you. You've joined casper at quite an interesting time over the last year with everything that's been going on with the endemic. How has that changed. The experience made it different better or worse. I mean i think it's eh it's about a year and a half there and only through the pandemic so it's really instant credible leadership challenge obviously but it's also required a lot more listening to what's going on in the consumer Mindset there's people are handling so many other things right now and so even when we were doing work it was really important that we were testing that work and we were making sure it was resonating going back to what we were saying. In terms of relevance that it spoke to people that it encouraged them to think favorably about us. i think we were very Did research specifically on this brand platform new commercial that we did just to make sure we were really resonating and so think just listening. It's may be become much more attentive listener internally and externally. It's such a great tip. I would say for all marketers test and learn and i know we all do that. Have that mantra but especially now if you come across in a non empathetic way without keeping people's head space in mind it's wouldn't be the best. Look that's for sure. Also risk really significant alienation. Let's step back go backwards in time a little bit. But did you start off thinking you would become a cmo started your career. Did you have that goal in mind or did unfold as the goal to be right here with you know to be honest. No it wasn't and and that doesn't mean that i wasn't deliberate in my choices or my career moves but in reality i had actually thought and was studying and to get my side.

"casper" Discussed on How I Built This
"More fund. Take it out of the box. Venture capital has had a love affair with direct to consumer startups over the past decade. Even though the vast majority of products you buy are sold through third parties the direct to consumer brand model has gotten a lot of attention. I'm talking about peleton and parker. And bonobos even tesla these are all more or less that were designed to be sold directly to you either through the internet or a brick and mortar shop owned by the brand. The idea behind c. Brands is simple and elegant. Sell a product directly to the consumer at a price higher than wholesale but lower than retail. And then use the prophets to aggressively advertise your product to acquire more consumers over time you scale and then soon enough your brand is worth billions except that model has proved to be a lot harder than it sounds. Customer acquisition costs are really high and unlike ten years ago when the tc model really took off there is a lot of competition now. We're be parker. Isn't the only one selling glasses directly to consumers anymore and all birds is now among dozens of dc shoe brands. Same goes for mattresses. Today there are at least a hundred and seventy direct. Consumer brands that sell mattresses online. It's a crowded and confusing marketplace. But when philip krim and his partners launched casper mattresses in two thousand fourteen there were just a handful of these types of businesses. Philip was part of a wave of entrepreneurs who saw that the experience of buying something as mundane but important as a mattress actually matter to consumers he and his partners launched casper as a way to make buying a mattress simpler a mattress that could be ordered online. Compressed into a box and delivered to your door and casper kind of created the model for the way many mattress companies manufacture market and deliver their products. Today casper's rise was meteoric at one point private investors valued the brand at over a billion dollars but since its initial public offering on the new york stock exchange twenty twenty casper's market value has dropped by half and well all. This certainly rattled. Philip krim. He's also an ambitious. Ceo with plans to make casper much bigger than a mattress brand. He wants it to be asleep. Brand of how nike was once a shoe brand but is now known as a sports brand. Philip grew up in sugarland texas where his dad was an entrepreneur. Who tried out all kinds of business ideas as a kid fill up. Knew he would do something in the business world which was his plan when he started college at the university of texas. I very much knew that. I wanted to do business. I didn't think it was going to be kind of the entrepreneurial path. I thought it was going to be more kind of the finance path. I recall fondly playing like the stock market is in fifth grade and during the dot com mania in just being you know looking at the stock market quotes in the newspaper every day and you know probably have read the wall street journal since elementary school. And so i started. Ut as a finance major. But obviously pivoted as i started tinkering around with doing my own things and then ultimately did go down the entrepreneurial journey. While i was in school and post school. I think in school while you were in college. You started your first business in e commerce business right. that's right You know. At the time i didn't say like oh i'm going to go start my business which i start. It was more of well. I don't really wanna get a traditional summer job and sit in an office all summer. Water ways that i could use the internet to make money In a non traditional way. I guess at the time and so i learned what drop shipping was. I learned about html and how to build websites using html. And so. I figured out that. If i built a website and could market the website online others could do a drop shipping to the customer fulfillment and that could be way to make money so just started messing around with that. You had this idea. Maybe i'll start some kind of ecommerce business. You didn't know what it was. But she thought it can be cool and this is like what two thousand to two thousand three something like that. That's right so ecommerce still really early days. People still nervous about putting their credit cards online. But what did you would you decide to sell it. It was early days. This was kind of post. The crash of the dot com boom and bust and so people are still very skeptical about it. You know to me though. There were people online searching for products all day every day and so i would look up what people were searching for. You know you could see search volumes. And then i would go look for manufacturers that would ship directly to the customer if i gave them in order and then you know the manufacturer would charge my credit card and do the fulfillment and i would charge the customer's credit card through my merchant account and i worked with you know dozens of different manufacturers. Who would sell everything from window. Blinds where people would give us their measurements and it would be made to order. Xm cream to help Children with asthma Sofas futons to how to play poker software All the way through to mattresses. So i've actually been around the the mattress side of things Sincerely to thousands as well but at the time it was really just anything. I could find where i could figure out that people were searching for it and i could find a manufacturer who would do the fulfillment. I could do the rest from dorm but it would just be. This was not one website. 'cause you i'm assuming you wouldn't go to a single website and you could buy exit cream and futons and window right no. This was a portfolio of different websites. So i generally try to build a targeted website for the specific product or manufacturer that i was working with. And it's actually. At the time. I think at the time wayfair was doing something similar is exactly i wish i started. You know all kinds of bric a brac and then furniture and played at multan. Dozens hundreds of different websites. And this is essentially. What you were doing was it pretty cheap to do all this. It was cheap enough where i could kind of using misappropriating some student loan money and and you know starting with credit cards so you know it was something i did it all myself i had no money was on scholarship for school into was able to kinda just put it together with you. Know some some sweat equity. I guess and get going and then the nice thing about the model Which is true also for casper when we started it is just a. It's a negative cash conversion which is a fancy way of saying customers. Give you the money to to buy the goods before you have to put the money out. So it's actually very capital way to start and scale business philip. How did you find these kinds. It's you were so young and it's such a cool idea two thousand and two three like how did you find even find companies that were willing to work with you. Did you just because this is before you can find anything on the internet. It was still pretty early days. So how'd you identify those companies. I wish i remembered the specifics. I remember just trying to call up companies.
Denmark Gets Second Chance at Euro 2020
"The football where Denmark have won an emotional group stage game against Russia at Euro 2020 to qualify for the last 16 less than 10 days after their star player Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch in their opening shock defeat to Finland. To beat Russia for one to claim that only three points But Finland's lost to Belgium and that was enough for Denmark to qualified in second place. Here's Danish manager Casper Helmand. We are a unit. It's not one person. It's not me on anything else. It's a unit were backing each other up. And that is the best with Denmark. I think it's the best values we can. We can show the world that we stand united. We we are. We are. We are helping each other. The result means Russia are out of Finland did lose two notes of Belgium.

Casper Sleep (CSPR) Reports Q1 Loss, Tops Revenue Estimates
"Year after their first quarter loss was smaller than expected revenue in. The first quarter was higher than expected and this was looking like it was going to be a really good day for shareholders and it has not turned out to be a really good day for shareholders a pre market. The stock was up close to ten percent it reversed course. It's basically flat right now. A start wherever you want. But i'm curious what you see when you look at casper sleep so generally positive things chris. I haven't listened in on the call. So i don't know what management might have said to kill the enthusiasm. They created with this earnings report. This is a tough industry. I am a big fan of a company called sleep number which is a competitor of casper. Sleep casper sleep is starting to impress me a little bit though. Well let's work through these numbers and then we'll talk about the stories behind them. So as you mentioned revenue increased. It was up twenty percent to one hundred seventy eight million year over year. They're direct to consumer revenue so this includes their retail stores and their online sales that increase eleven percent but north america retail partnership revenue. This increased fifty four percent. So what is this. This is casper. Sleep selling through partners. Like nordstroms ashley. Store sam's club. It is gradually getting into really great venues to sell their price point of mattress. Which isn't super expensive. I thought that number was great. The other thing Which is

Tournament upsets working against No. 1 Gonzaga
"We were having a spirited debate about gonzaga show where we were talking about this. You know casual basketball fans will say. Hey gonzaga doesn't win it this year. This is the best chance to win it. But i was saying about this about for a long time. I went back to that team. But they have with nigel williams gos- and cement karnowski the amount of masquerading as a man as you always call him. This has been a consistent theme. Do you think this their best chance to win. It's considering we have by double digit seeds moving on the sweet sixteen in relation to the competition. While i think that's the camera talks about the best team. It's got to be this best team in relation to who you're gonna be playing against so when you look at this gonzaga team in relation to the field. It's probably their best chance. Not we'll have another chance knowing mark few they're going gonna continue to get good players but this team is unique. There historically good offensively. They create matchup problems match problems at the point. The size of suggs. Who quite honestly reminds me. Jason kidd matra points of front timmy. With his footwork and his skill level match up at the four spot with casper stretch defense and put it down and mma forces your for to guard on the floor especially in transition joel. Who absolutely only triple double in the history of gonzaga basketball. And we don't even talk about the dude. So yeah i think in relation to the field i think this is gonzaga's best shot. They're so good offense when he gets up every fourteen seconds which is absolutely ridiculous to flow of their offense really puts a lot of pressure on your defense not only to get back but to get set so i would agree. This is their best shot in this moment in time because of the

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a new 16-bit beat-'em-up
"Needs to Turtles shredders revenge. Who thought this one coming nobody. I drink turtle's brawler stuff. Still right and that's like the one type. Eternal game that gets made besides japanese. Yeah i action games not good once. Yeah i mean yeah. We hope it's good. It has good pedigree behind it. Trivia games The guy did the one. I enjoyed last year. Very much panzer paladin. What like. I was not that interested in this because only because so many of these throwbacks end up being disappointing. Right like you're so jazz and exciting. It comes out and it's fine. You know and then and then and then it's over but this one every single portion of the announcement. I'm mike okay. Okay developer like good like they're hitting all the right notes. I could not be more jazzed. I think this is going to be the one that like actually delivers on the promise of like what. Sort of a modern throwback can be. Well yeah except that it's it's being Published by dot edu. Who last year brought a street bridge. Four which is also another great modern classic broader exactly johm. It looks so cool. it's reg. I'm not a journalist guy. So i'll i'll connect to this on the brawler level. It streets ridge four had anything that was like kind of like a meta gain. That kind of like did something. Brawlers didn't like an rpg system like mercy ransom or like castle crashers or anything like that. It had an interesting scoring mechanism. Where the longer you went. Without taking damage higher your score would go which is kinda cool and a stressful to me. I liked it. It also had a really really great animation. Of course herbals game is going for classic. Look like it is a sequel to the original turtles. Arcadian nearly nineties Our producer is writing me. That turtles in time is so much fun now. I played all the early turtles brawlers. they're fine. I played them like crazy. When i was a kid. But you guys know how i feel about brawlers need something extra or just too boring other. Otherwise it's good for you know ten dollars worth of quarters in the arcade galway's grant them that but i don't want that in my home and even with four people i'm gonna play through once maybe and it was to see all the cool pixel art and stuff so that'd be nice in this and i'm sure it'll be interesting but back in the day brawlers were cutting edge graphics. There's nothing that looked as good as them. And that was the reason for me to play them like run racers were first coming out not gonna play daytona usa ever again but i was pretty excited about daytona usa. When it was at a bank of machines in the arcade. I'll close up ten dollars in quarters into this machine. But i won't buy it for ten dollars. I wouldn't do that. It's the arcade experience in your with your friends and you're like how long can this quarter get mean this round. How much have improved since my last order experience. Exactly yeah maybe something will modify a cabinet and we can all play together to extreme or something in the future. that'd be cool way to experience. What if the game free but every time you wanted to play again at cost you asked about that. And nobody's really done. The twenty five cent per game system microsoft tried doing that with xbox live arcade border per play. It was something like that. We had to pay each play of these classic arcade games. Oh yeah one of the castle. Vania games like that. One of the xp la's spinoffs. Maybe joe was the castle vania. Excellent spin off that was like that zoom in and zoom out one which is was the cooperative one. That was really cool. I don't remember the pace anyway. You are right sam. I beat dragon and the arcade back in the day. But only because my grandpa just kept giving me quarters eventually my sister and i just four star way to our way to the end of the game where you bany or jimmy. I'm a lifelong me. There are only jimmy on the eighty. S yeah i think it's corrected or it was originally correct in their arcade The i have like a little kid. I had don't really fun. Time at the arcade playing with a friend through the simpsons. Game those my best brawler Experience we had happened to come in to a ten dollars in quarters or something. We got last boston. Did not beat the las boss. Still never finished the simpsons but it was so exhilarating and so illuminating to go through the first couple levels which costs you a buck fifty. Probably in the next couple levels which cost you probably four dollars and then the last boss which cost you four dollars by itself adds up in the set of funny way. It's it's you know it's those. Were designed to your quarters. At a point where people stopping go competitive with quarters and getting high scoring with pacman staff and of course the next era of arcades we all know with street fighter two competitive stuff that wet bridge of high tech brawlers like you know as corner starting with call it by the way. Yeah i actually have. I have a lot of affinity for brawlers. Who doesn't everybody loves him. But like you're you're completely right that. Although i do have an affinity for them like they're kind of garbage in like you know the bosses have invincibility frames and Just lockable moves. And just you know total screen wipes and like clearly like a super high level of skill. That stuff isn't a problem but for like everyday people like they just become impossible to the point. Where like you said. They're designed to you. Know to continue. Yeah so but that's why seeing them come. Home is so exciting. Because then they don't have that limitation that requirement on the commercial side on the on the capitalist side like they can just design a really really cool fudd brawling fighting combat system without the need for a bunch of bullshit bosses that That i can afford another quarter. That's casper crashers. I think they did a good job with it. Yup tina this announcement anything for you In the sense that i played like the early nineties. Konami think version the arcade version back in the day. So i had the same fondness that anybody else would just Having an opportunity to to play multiplayer game when that's a reality in the future at some point when you can sit down on a couch next to a friend and actually play the stuff. I'm also not a huge brawler fan. There's a level of consistency in sameness to them. After a while when you play them back to back. But i loved. River city ransom. Um so. there's definitely some affection in my heart for the genre overall.

My name is patrick lane. And as thank you for introducing me. I'm the product manager for competition cybersecurity certifications as a director. I work a lot with the industry and within comp tia in to ensure that our exams are meeting the needs of the industry security plus as one of our largest certifications of all comp. Tia in fact. It's our number one certification and so one of the reasons why people are coming to security plus is because of the skills that it offers and the fact that employers are hiring people who have security plus social security plus will help you get a job in it and cybersecurity so when we look at the certification we have to remember that security plus as an entry level certification exam it was released in two thousand two and it's updated every three years it assesses the baseline or core technical skills required to secure networks software hardware devices essentially it teaches you the basics to securing anything that's attached to a network or the internet. It's a broad range of cybersecurity skills as you can imagine. A any skills are used for high performance on the job so people are coming to take security plus because it proves that they can do the job and employers will know that they could get the job done so the it certification in general is very valuable also security plus appears nearly ten percent of all job ads in the united states and right now sixteen percent of the entire workforce has security plus and we have millions of people who have taken our commttiee exams around the globe. In the last three years. There have been a lot of changes in cybersecurity. Probably all aware of the industry continues to grow their continued to be more jobs available. There continued to be not enough people to fill those jobs and in fact in some cases employers are looking to icy certifications employers are looking to it certifications in lieu of a college degree. Four jobs. That are hard to hire for. They would rather hire someone with the bachelor degree and assert if they could but in this day and age or enough phenomenal time of human history.

"casper" Discussed on ON BOYS Podcast
"If you're listening to the recording later, you can always contact us off at boys alive and find out when the next event is. Thanks for being here. I know you're going to love this conversation. As our guest today has said most of us know what consent means but knowing what it means does not necessarily guarantee that we or our boys will actually be prepared in the moment. I'm sure you can recall Jen some dating that's maybe gone sideways or a conversation with a friend that may have gotten difficult or sexual interactions that well. It didn't quite feel like an assault how long did feel uncomfortable and in hindsight may not have felt consensual. It takes incredibly strong interpersonal skills to navigate these scenarios in the moment. And that's for adults. Imagine how challenging it can be for your boys to effectively ask specific questions set. And keep boundaries check in and handle rejection gracefully. I'm still working on that one Our Guest today. Sorry Casper is a master at teaching the skills that you and your boys need before the stakes are high. Welcome saara you so much for having me. I'm thrilled to be here. You know, you came to teaching about consent from a very different angle. Probably no one else in the world has quite entered the consent doorway the way you could have so I would love to hear more about that. Yes. I entered a consent education through acrobatics. Okay, if you all just made a little face in what huh? So did I so did Janet I am a practitioner of yoga or partnered acrobatics and in this practice because instead of using an apparatus like trapeze or aerial silks we're using our bodies there has to be a lot of communication about our bodies about our comfort levels about what we want to explore where our limits are what we maybe want to work towards now going out of a trick if it doesn't work and I started to realize that the conversations I was having in life. I actually of the classes were more or less the same conversations that happened in the bedroom and I started to think about how if this is dead. Generalizable when you think about skills as being generalizable started to wonder where else does this come up cuz it's already in two places. And so since my background is in Psychology pacifically teaching social emotional skills to kids. I wondered if there was a way I could take what I learned about touching communication from this completely non-sexual practice and start to teach kids how to navigate touch both just regular everyday platonic or familial touch and then eventually off generalize those skills as they get older too sexual touch. I love that this came from your involvement in I'm going to call it a sport because it very much is an awful..
Coronavirus infection rates continue to rise in the U.S.
"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds. That is what we are running out of in rural minnesota and all over the country. Here's the first column in that same paper today. Case rates skyrocket in the region again. That's west central minnesota. Here's the front page of the news star in monroe louisiana blunt headline hospitals overwhelmed. Here's the front page in grand junction colorado. Today the daily sentinel county says. Icu beds are full. Here's the front. Page in muncie indiana. Today the star. Press in muncie. Indiana hospitals cove in nineteen rates. Sores in indiana go to wyoming. The casper star tribune today casper wyoming deaths rise by record number. Something has got to turn this around kentucky. Here's the lexington kentucky paper. The herald leader kentucky sets staggeringly high new record for coronavirus cases. Go to new mexico the albuquerque journal today cova cases explode up in washington state bellingham herald. State virus rate's the worst since the beginning of pandemic all over the country right and as as overwhelming as this crisis is may now tonight. We've just learned that. The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune. Today i was actually a pretty good snapshot of what the heck we as americans are supposed to do with the twin disasters. We've got all at once and look at the front page at the minneapolis star tribune today a raging forest fire virus sweeps minnesota state to get ambulances from fema for surge importantly those are staffed ambulances so ambulance with their crews from fema going into minnesota to help them deal with patients and the need to move patients in hospitals. That are overwhelmed
America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt
"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans
"casper" Discussed on Reports from the Spiritual Frontier
"Thousand dollars changed. Trans people started to make off for one. Another people signed up to be listening bodies for folks who are alone and just needed someone to talk to. And so those are the things that to me are symbols of our inherent capacity for goodness. That's being challenged this election. Opt to save that. There's also inherit capacity something else but that there was an exciting moment now whether it's Even gaining community's getting together and playing games together and then Moving offline to take action together that the promise of arc is talking about is now mediated New ways as well. And here's what here's this is where we just be go. Often start talking back and forth now because the but here's that's important you know this is about democracy and then we are in a moment when obviously our national democracy better or for worse Right is is hanging in the balance right and and so yes. Conversations about systems in structures policies have to be had like we are a very realistic about that fat. But i also when we talk about imagination. Hope that we can get to a point. I think i know casper is there. I know i am there. Some on this call maybe there but some may not be there yet of understanding that in this american experiment there must meet acknowledgement of failure of some failure that in experimentation it means that some things we can let go and have can decide in a sense say this did not work it is not working and that's okay but what can we create that is new and i think in this moment is so important for us to continue to fight in the system challenged the system the system the system what what are new systems that can better serve us and i guarantee you those will not come from top down in never have historically speaking they never have they come from people they come from conversations like this they come in rooms like this and with small groups and experimentation around arts.
Trump continues Pentagon shake-up, gives loyalists key roles
"Now in the twilight of his presidency. President trump is reshuffling his national security team tonight current and former. Us military and intelligence officials are telling our richard angle. It's dangerous and could help america's adversaries ariza richards report days before he was pushed out as defense secretary. Mark casper told the military times.

The moves give president trump still commander in chief more freedom to act especially overseas esperer posed pulling all. Us troops from afghanistan and syria. Both may now be on the cards. I think there are two prongs to this action. One is simple. Vengeance and the other is opening operational flexibility for international operations that he feels could benefit him politically. It's not just the pentagon former intelligence officials tell nbc news. Cia director gina. Haskell may be the next to go has pull has resisted releasing classified documents as former. Cia officials tell nbc. They worry president trump and his allies may cherry pick intelligence cushing false claims. Democrats lied about the russia investigation and are cheating now.

Amid Pandemic, Airlines Forge a New Survival Metric: Daily Cash Burn
"Tomorrow and the days to follow. We'll bring a peek inside the books of the Big Airlines Delta United American and southwest will report earnings and there's a phrase you will undoubtedly here around as they detail how they are getting through the pandemic cash burn. And among the many questions we have is how long can you burn cash when there is so very little of it coming in we as marketplace's into your to explain. A company's cash burn rate measures how quickly IT spending its financial reserves the International Air Transport Association says. Airlines will burn through more than seventy seven, billion dollars during the second half of this year Brian Pierces that group chief economist most companies particularly, airlines just don't have revenues coming in, but they can't get rid of all of their cost at the moment. So they are running down there cash balances. In the bank they opening cash at a rate of many millions of day last quarter. Delta. Reported a daily burn rate of twenty, seven million dollars but I just found out that airlines calculate cash burn differently. Yeah. That was news to me as well. Read Snyder runs the airline industry blog cranky flier as figured casper and it's okay we had this much cash. Now we have this much cash but no. They're all kinds of little carve-outs in in differences between the airlines whether an airline includes principal payments or debt service payments in their cash burn will tell a different story to investors but no matter how the numbers calculated unrelenting cash burn means more debt former airline executive and industry analyst Robert Man puts it this way you go to the red to place by a bunch of furniture and burden. Slough to pay for it ultimately, but you brought it expenses don't go away just because people aren't flying but jack her shoe follows distress businesses for SNP global market intelligence says the airlines are in better shape than they're letting on. They've got almost uniformly more than a year and some cases more than two years of running room with cash as it currently stands in the balance sheet before they end up in trouble because before the pandemic hit, the industry was making enough cash to burn.
Sigma Prime with Mehdi Zerouali
"Hey everyone my name's Matty I'm a CO founder and director of Sigma Prime We are an information security consultancy mostly based out of Australia being hiring a bunch of people all over the world lately. We've been around for about full years providing security assessment services to a lot of blockchain projects working. Almost exclusively lately on. Iridium. Providing security assessment on smart contracts on a lot of protocol. Layer developments. And I guess we are here to talk about Easter 'cause we are also the founders and maintainers of light hops arrest implementation of the. Two point plano specification thanks for having. A real quick. What would you say the? Technical advantage or differentiator lighthouse has over other there to. Invitations. a question question it. We that quite often we because of of the the company we're in information security consultancy we take security very seriously. We'd like to think that we've incorporated security into our development lifecycle very early on. So would like to think that our clients is probably one of the hopefully safest was secure clients out there it's written in Ross Ross is particularly fast. So the focus has also been on the fullness speeds and as I mentioned security So that's probably what differentiates from the rest of the other teams. Get a moment to pitch chill out to private the process of lighthouses. Good nells offended A. that. The approach here is the kind of. Break down the concept of theorem to what's going on and what users can expect so. I'm not exactly sure how I want to do this the the conversations going to naturally evolve I think but like if you had to give the. Highest of high. Level overviews of the transition from ethylene S to. Or just say. Okay. Let's have this. So, F one is the proof of work chain that we all love us and as you all probably know, the plan was always to transition to approve of stay consensus mechanism. So namely. Casper, if g so the research team has been working on this. If your foundation research you had been working on this for the past four, five, six years and mentors have been developing the. Specification, turning it into actual usable software. For the past two and a half years. The main difference as mentioned is the consensus mechanism. So moving away from proof of work, which is a quite a west full way of coming to consensus if you ask me. I know this can be quite polarizing community, but this is basically how Paul my co founder got started on Lighthouse I think ethereal currently uses as much electricity as Costa. Rica, if I'm not mistaken. And we think sigma prime. That is so. Much. Better ways of coming to consensus. And kost perfect is one of them. So super excited about the environmental impact of the transition from steak and this transition will happen gradually. we'll be shipping if to in various phases. So phase zero is the first phase that will be introduced hopefully a few weeks I a couple months. The latest set ladies year is what we're aiming for. and. This introduces consensus change. Right is introduces the proof of stake consensus mechanism Gasparilla Gene, and we essentially call these chain, the beacon chain, and you can see as this orchestrate. That gives the pulse of the network to Valley daters, giving them tasks, rewarding them when they do their job correctly. Penalizing them when they don't etc, etc.. That's phase zero. That's what I guess. All client teams are working on at the moment and. Phase One will hopefully come shortly up and phase one introduces shards, the concept of shod. So Ethier two point Oh will be shotted blockchain meaning that will have. Sixty four sub block changing see them as sort of independent blockchain's that are all linked and tides with each other through five that consensus mechanism in the beacon. Check. So. Once we have that will be effectively using those shards just as dot availability layers we won't. Have State transitions or users of smart contracts or transactions as we are all familiar with in if one that will come in light up so talks about phase one point five, which hopefully will. Get one into each to and have that as a separate dedicated shot. In face to. Will introduce I, guess proper state execution and smart contracts, and this is when will actually have a blockchain usable blockchain developers as we all relative with them when you hear him on. That makes sense.
