To make this a three team race in the National League west in 2021 in your eyes, Can they get the Giants to a level where they're at least competing for a wild card berth that they haven't been able to capture in the past few years? Well, I think it is going to be interesting to see What kind of moves The Giants still make them and I think the Giants are You know they're not in position even if they went out and signed a couple of the top free agents. I don't know that they're gonna gonna be the team to beat all of a sudden in the division with the Dodgers and Padres both there, but I think the Giants feel like they're they're coming on that there. There. There are a team that's moving up and whether they can compete with these guys right now. That remains to be seen, But I think the Giants Are with the young talent that they have still to come in the minor leagues. They're going to go into this season with the idea that Whatever Whatever they start with is hopefully these guys because they've got some real young and outstanding prospects in the minor leagues. That Maybe some of those guys be ready to go for prime time by July or whatever that midway through that season Giants he might be.

Musicians: Kassia of Constantinople
"Today's musician was one of the only known women to have composed music during the medieval period she was one of the first medieval composers whose work survives to present day and can be understood and performed by modern musicians. A brilliant composer poet and him Niagara for her work is still performed regularly in the Orthodox Church, which includes twenty three of her hymns in its liturgy. Please welcome casio of Constantinople. Casio was born around the year eighty, five and Constantinople to a wealthy family of some influence. We know little about her early life. What we do know is that she was considered an exceptionally beautiful and brilliant young woman? Casio was first recorded by Byzantine historians as taking part in what was known as the bride show. This was an event at which Byzantine emperors a royalty would choose a wife from amongst the most eligible women in the empire giving the winning participant Golden Apple as a token of victory. The bride show that Casio attended thrown for the young soon to be emperor theophilus who was immediately captivated by Casio when Theophilus approached Cassiopeia, he stated that through a woman came forth the baser things to which casio quickly replied and through a woman came forth the better things. The office was so taken aback by Cassius biting rebuke that he rejected her in favor of another woman the Adora after losing her chance to become empress of Byzantium Cassius founded an Abbey Eight, forty three right outside of Constantinople and served as its first abbess. Many historians have suggested the Cassius move into monastic life was a response to her rejection from the office. But some modern scholars have revisited that assumption. And now believe that it was likely a reflection of the intense religious fervor of the day combined with Cassius desire to have access to the books and centers of learning that were part and parcel of Byzantine religious. Life. Over the subsequent two decades living at the monastery Cassius spent significant writing spiritual poetry and him no music to accompany her poems. Though it's unclear where she learned musical composition, she wrote nearly two hundred and fifty hymns over her lifetime. Fifty of those, him still survive twenty three of which continue to be included even today in the liturgy of the Orthodox Church? Casio also wrote nearly eight hundred epigrams, many of which are examples of nomex verse. Cassius, most famous him WHO's the him? CASSIA is traditionally chanted on holy Wednesday in Orthodox churches around the world. It's considered one of the hardest Byzantine chance to perform because it requires an incredibly wide vocal range. Legend has it that the Emperor Theophilus years later wishing to see Casio one more time went to the monastery but was met by her empty cell supposedly, she was actually hiding in her closet when he saw the him of Cassie on her table halfway finished the office added one line of his own. The story goes that Casio chose to keep it in his honor and it remains in the him today. While Theophilus may have maintained affection for Cassiopeia that didn't stop him from persecuting her. The office was a fierce iconoclast meaning that he completely rejected the use or veneration religious icons iconography in the Byzantine. Casio on the other hand was a defender of the use of icons for her perceived insolence. Casio was whipped with a lash. Still. She refused to change her mind saying I hate silence when it is time to speak. Towards the end of her life, Casio. Left the Abbey and traveled to Italy for a brief period before eventually settling on the island of Casio's in. Greece. She died there sometime between eight, sixty, seven, and eight ninety. Following her death Casio was canonized by the Orthodox. Church. As Saint Cassini also known as Cassini the him NOG

But Why Live: Poetry
"Oscar is ten and lives in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and he told us he wrote this poem for Mother's Day bike rides with Mama another scrape. My knees keep donating bloody skin to the sidewalk. Here comes Mama keeping a straight face even though I know she must be laughing inside because it's not the first time I ride my bike into a fire hydrant since we took off the training wheels. I've been living on the edge the edge of sidewalk the edge of Aggressee Hill. The Japan nerves no longer our arms on my shoulder while I ride but she is always there. I remember clapping when I wrote up to the mailbox. You're doing it. She cheered. That was three years ago now. Whenever WE GONE by Christ's we travel miles. It's our thing on narrow streets. She leads the way otherwise. We're side by side even uphill in those. She's not holding my shoulders like she did when I was seven. I know I will always have balanced because of her. That's what a mother does to ride my bike with Mama to tell her without words that I love her Oscar. I love that poem. I Bet your mother was so so happy to get it. Here's a poem from Cassia. Who's seven and lives in Chatham on Tour Ontario? Her poem is called name is waterfall. I walk slowly down the rocks. My eyes are big whitish blue. I carry a bubble of water by breath salty. My touches software misty. I moved fast and sneaky voices. Smooth soft common scratchy. Right name is my name is waterfall casio. That is so beautiful all right. Let's get into more poems. We have more of you who are calling in to read some poems on air and some of you may have questions about poems and poetry that you'd like to share with us as well and I want to bring in our guide for the our Ted. Shy Ted is known as the poetry guy around here in Vermont and beyond. He's been teaching poetry. Two Kids for more than twenty years and some of you listening might have been about to have a school event with Ted shy before your classes got canceled so lucky us. He's with us today. Ted I Jane. I'm so excited to talk poetry with you. Even more thrilled than you. This is such a cool honor to be on your awesome show. Oh thank you thank you but I'm going to start with a really tough question for you. Although I think it's one you've probably answered many many times. So Ted when we think about poems some poems rhyme some poems. Don't some have a few words and then skip to the next line. Some have lines that run together. Some poems are designed to be read on the page others are designed to be spoken and heard a loud some poems follow rules about form and structure. Once you know the rules. Some poems still break them. Some poems are very very short but some like the epic poetry of homer are as long as a chapter book and have characters and plot like a novel would so ted. What is poetry? That's a hard question and you listed so many different ways because that's what homes are. There are lots of different things to me. A poem is a small mostly small. It's focused it's laser focused on one important thing in your life. Something you feel really strongly about and it's sort of like if if kids live in the northeast and especially in Vermont. They know that Maple Syrup for example is something we do here. We make here. And when you make Maple Syrup you take lots and lots of Sap from the maple tree and you have to boil it down and it takes forty drops of maple sap to make one delicious drop of Maple Syrup that dances on your tongue. And it's kind of a process that everybody has to take this long mostly long process of sort of distilling boiling down your thoughts until it becomes a really important night and idea and it doesn't have to take any particular shape. That's the cool thing about poems. A rules are super flexible. So but so if a poem can be anything if you're writing one. Oh that's a good question. Well it's sort of an open thing you. There's so many different shapes and sizes of poems but it is something that you know in your heart. You've written something. Like Oscar was writing about such detail and living I love the way he described living on the edge and Cossio filled with details about her voice and their breath is and it's looking at things really really carefully and so did I answer your question. Not really because there isn't there isn't really an answer. Poems take so many different forms but they're not stories there even though Oscar kind of told story. It's it's really just a focus little expression of something super important so those epic poems and epic poets like homer and you know the the Odyssey and the Iliad are those really kind of different than what we consider modern poems. I think so. I have a hard time There aren't too many poets that long stuff these days and back when they wrote those they didn't even write them down. Had people who memorize like and they would share it for many many days. Twenty four seven without stopping so that was kind of an unusual story type of poem and epic Narrative Poem. And fortunately there aren't. Most people writes shorter stuff and I certainly do myself. I'm kids. Maybe that's a good assignment for you. See if you can just recite a poem. Twenty four seven. See what you think about that. Maybe maybe you can tell them that. Ted Shy told you you should do it. Let's get to some poems. That kids are sending us and we have lots of kids calling in Ted who WanNa read their poems allowed and this is so exciting because I love it when are able to read their own poems but we got a found poem that was sent to us by the common dish town elementary sixth grade class they actually wrote this palm on zoom. They're having video conference meetings and they focused on things to do outside so each student put a line in the chat box in their video conference and hit send at the very same time and this is the poem that resulted watching the birds. That land on my feet feeder going hiking riding my bike bright orange caterpillar under the leaves. I breathe in air running down the sidewalk as fast as I can smelling the bright tulips growing. Love it outside. That's pretty good for palm that everybody hit send on at the same time. Don't you all say the ending? The last line is the perfect line for that yeah. Nothing's no kidding. Thank you for that. Kevin dish sixth-graders.
Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia
"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.
Why Front's Series C matters
"I'm Alex Wilhelm and once again I have have denny Crichton with me Danny how are you doing. I'm doing awesome. That is that's enthusiasm. You are back in New York. I'm in Providence and I have to say I've I've had enough of this shit. I want some summer but the good news is despite the terrible weather and the time of the year. There is a gazillion things to get to. So I'm going to skip the usual faffing about and jump bright in. I'm going to start the show with front which I need you to explain to me why this particular funding round was such a big deal. Right you'RE GONNA kick off the entire show that so start with why. Hi the Health Care Front. Raise fifty nine million dollars in series C and Here's here's the deal. They didn't have a lead. They had no investors. There no lead V. V. C. WE KNOW Vision Fund. No no sequoia. Although Sequeira did the series B. on they actually lead with a couple of really prominent be to be CEO and founder so lasting Cassia and founder Mike Cannon Brookes octa CEO and Co founder Frederick Harassed Multiplex Co founder and CEO. Ryan Smith Zoom CEO. Eric Yuen. What's interesting here here is is? We're getting to these late. Stage growth rounds at a time when there's more growth money than ever and basically said now we're good we're just gonNA take from really prominent angels. Who all of that exited you know? Kind of startups and. So what's interesting here is twofold one is one the dynamic. VC industry which we can talk about more but to actually kind of the strategy here of front is a B. Two B. Product Arctic. Selling to other kind of B2B startups and so by taking this money from other kind of B. Two B. Sales centered Start founders and see IOS. They're really kind of like buying. I'm from their own customers so to speak right synchronicity. That's connecting the two together. So the fifty nine million dollar round had no lead. VC there was no like Kleiner liner coming in here right in the big check. I'm curious do you think that the disease that previously invested got pro rata in this round or do think it was all just money from these I guess executives turned angels. I think they've got Harada me. I don't think it was in the press. Release that they did but I am sure they did. I'm also not entirely clear that these folks took the entire round. I mean there could have been nate. Twenty or twenty five million dollars slug from around that was announced yama funding from a farm that was announced But nonetheless like the fact that it was positioned this way If you imagine in ten years ago this sort of round first of all wouldn't exist but this ground where we would said Oh a bunch of angels came in late stage. It'd be like well. This company must be doing terribly wrong Novi. ABC was willing to lead the round. Things have changed so much. That founder can literally say God. We got a couple of individuals around at the party. At the craps table they put in fifty nine million bucks. We're going wow unbelievable. They said no to everyone. It's amazing change in time. It is but also I'm kind of embarrassed by the number of people I know on this list. Like I know Frederick a little bit I know Ryan a little but I know Eric a little bit. I think I've met J. I mean I think I need to change industry industries because the the same eight people keep coming up. That's embarrassing to me. I need any new friends. Let's talk about what the company does front is be messaging kind of calms thing. It looks like email works for teams. I'm assuming this is kind of product aimed at customer support customer success kind of groups. Yes affront fronts. Innovation was really for a lot of top companies they have an email like support at techcrunch dot com or press at at Google Dot Com. Which is actually how we reach out to right? And so when that goes into Press Google Dot com on that actually gets centered and moved around the the thousands of people who are in Google Google to figure out how to respond to it. So if he's coming from an ad tech crunch email address like from us he goes to our tech crunch contact if it goes to APEC Asia. Pacific it'll go to someone who's live overnight overnight overseas and so basically thousands of people are accessing the same email inbox and so. Have you ever tried to do your own inbox with g million. No it's basically impossible with one goddamn person on the box. Now you had an hundreds of people all of whom are interacting with the same emails etc and suddenly. It's just a complete mess front. Took that and said Hey. What have we built in box from? Scratch zooming that. There are thousands of people or hundreds of people reading the same tickets reading the same emails. And how can we respond to it. Really really effectively. Huge problem tons of companies have it. They've been super successful. It's only a couple years old and what's interesting is actually the the founders are French It actually has a large Parisian office one founder Laurent Had A decade and enterprise. And then WHO's also female be to be founder of rare breed unfortunately in the industry who CEO up and she. She kind of came out of her master's disagree in two thousand twelve and dived into this and front. So it's a five year. Old Company raised one hundred thirty eight almost one hundred forty million bucks. An insane amount of money ended the speed was raise capitals crazy because their series of ten million was back in May of two thousand sixteen. Then Bam sixty six million early eighteen and then two years later fifty nine million so really. It's pretty frontloaded or backloaded. I'm sorry to kind of where we are in time now. I'm curious to see how much more capital they'll need to scale this to IPO. It's already kind of there. But certainly a lot of star power a lot of customers on this new investment and. I'm kind of curious that this is a trend that will see a flex from companies. That were so hot. We don't even need venture capital all the real stars of our industry the money in It's certainly a new way to approach it absolutely. I think one of the key lessons here at least for me was a company that really figured out product market fit super early on You know if you look at it was founded Five years ago it took two years to build out so uncork. Capital is sort of a firm that argues it focuses on product market fit. They raised three point. One million seed in October two thousand fourteen and then once they sort of got this product market fit. And it's sort of obvious today but looking back in time the idea that there d the SASS product to fix this team oriented email. inbox was sort of not a concept of. Now it's just scaling right it's all sales scaling And so we're seeing the rounds. Get faster and faster. Because they're repeated you you know the sales are repeating assuming the growth is repeating internally. The numbers look great. It's sort of classic SAS business I expect us to see as one hundred millionaire our club as you call it hopefully in the next year or two that there hasn't been announcement around the revenues but I expect it to constitute here about their W. two and a half year over year now has a pretty quickly quickly there probably. I Dunno just guessing. You're twenty thirty million era or somewhere in there and they'll be largest soon enough. Let's talk about the couple world through a different Lens. Though you have been looking at Tau really large funds cutting smaller and smaller Jackson. We're talking about funds at have billions in assets under management writing five seven million dollar checks which seems to make no oh sense. According to the old model of larger funds larger textile works otherwise. They can't really disburse the capital. But that's changing and I want you to tell you why because to fascinating fascinating kind of like nuance about today's venture capital market. Absolutely free front is a great example of this right. So here's a fifty nine million dollar check that no growth stage investor mister. WHO has a billion dollars ready to deploy was able to invest it and so we're seeing once again The largest funds billions of dollars. We had we talked about last week. Show I think we had twenty-one fundraisers that were over five hundred million last year. It was ninety one somewhere in that category so a ton of money deployed and so the idea that you would do early. Stage investments is nuts. Because you can't deploy million dollars a thousand times a year and so the challenges is like. Why are people doing this when I started asking if he sees the answer was well once the the cap tables in the series B and D are out there? They're locked it in a sequeira already in the a benchmarks already in the a founders fund the and they have the capital to deploy in the B A C D E F g all the way through the Sesame Street Alphabet All the way through and so by the time you get to the D. you have no access or in the case of front. No one had access suicide. Basically you have to lock in earlier in earlier and so even if you're the Softbank Vision Fund you WanNa throw four hundred million dollars in series d you have to be in the seed or the series. He's A to start to lock in that Barada to start locking in those early ownership rights. It just gives you more ball control later on because other people are going to kind of knock you out of the way to get around in place and so there's sort of this paradox. Where we're seeing? You know the the largest latest stage funds doing the smallest early stage rows and so that that was a really interesting dynamic that we haven't seen before yeah and the one thing to keep in mind that when I was learning about the BBC World you know maybe a decade ago. Now I was always told that if you couldn't find a new lead investor for the proximate round the next one. It was a very bad signal because it would imply that no one else in the market one to lead your Siri seafood areas to be and having Europe preceding investors. That were leads lead. Your next around was a very bad thing. Now it's entirely flipped on its head because capital is sufficiently unscarred so ample so much flowing around the people want to stay in a company. Preempt preempt that next round they want to lead be and then the as much of the capital to work as they can on a winner to ensure that they can return enough capital to make their large fund contractive enough to raise a second one. So it's a facet of there. Being too much money in the market is certainly a change. Compared to how things used to work it's actually an inversion but it just goes to show how in twenty twenty the way the world works certainly is at least in my experience new. I'm maybe it was like this back in the late. Ninety something but certainly it feels like a new chapter and I presume zoom. Welcome back to what used to be normal when there's less capital around but I don't see that happening for the next eighteen twenty four thirty six months so this this is the way it's going to be Danny presented for the next while.
Minimum Wage Hikes Fuel Higher Pay Growth For Those At The Bottom
"Something unusual is happening in the US. Labor market workers at the bottom of the income ladder. Our finely seeing bigger pay raises than those who are higher up. That is partly because of the tight job. The market with unemployment near a fifty year low businesses have to pay more to attract new workers. Minimum wage though is also play here. Economists say minimum wage hikes at the state and local level. Well are giving a boost to millions of workers here's NPR's Scott horsely. Kista Jelly works a grocery store in Springfield Missouri. She typically works the closing shift noon. Eight or for three to ten PM. I'm a cashier Isis people every day with their groceries when she started almost two years ago jolly made minimum wage. which at the time was seven dollars? Eighty eighty five cents an hour in Missouri. She still making the minimum but thanks to a ballot. Measure passed in two thousand eighteen. That minimum is going up when jolly gets our first paycheck of twenty twenty twenty on Friday. She'll be earning nine forty five an hour. I would hope that it gets better and I think that I'll be better off but I think that it's going to still be a struggle jealous or paycheck. We'll still barely cover her rent and utilities. She relies on food stamps and school lunches to help feed her three children ages. Six eleven and fourteen jollies grateful that Missouri voters approved three additional increases in the minimum wage over the next three years by twenty twenty three to twelve dollars an hour. I've got at least a pecent living wage and then people can pay their bills. They can possibly get a few things on their wants list every month. Like kids need new clothes. or I'm that girl I ran out of Mascara like a month ago. Luxury items such as new socks in Arizona Colorado and Maine. The minimum wage is already twelve dollars an hour. Our the federal minimum has been stuck at seven twenty five an hour for more than a decade. But economists aren't today she says nearly two dozen states gave minimum. Wage workers raised raised on January. First if you're a minimum wage worker in America right now on average you're probably getting paid closer to twelve dollars an hour. That's what they call the effective minimum wage. And today she says those rising minimums are an important factor helping to lift up workers at the bottom of the pay scale. Right now the economy. Oughta me is doing something extraordinary. People at the bottom have actually seen higher wage growth than people at the top and in the middle minimum. Wages aren't the only factor. Today she says low wage workers also have more bargaining power now as employers scrambled to fill job openings. When unemployment's just three and a half percent the patchwork of minimum wages around the country. It does create a sort of natural experiment though for economists trying to measure the effects on low wage workers at least Gould who's the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Compared states raised their minimums to those. That didn't no matter how you cut it. The low wage workers are getting a larger wage boost in states that have raised their minimum wage. Gould estimates the higher minimums that took effect this month. Boosted paychecks for nearly seven million workers across the country economist. David Newmark of UC Irvine cautions. However the higher cost for employers may come with trade-offs. You're getting a raise if you keep your job and if you're ours don't change but there's plenty of evidence that there is some job Wasserman. The minimum wages and those workers are worse off newmark acknowledges job loss associated within wage. Hikes is probably less of a problem when unemployment is this low. CASSIA jolly hasn't seen any job cuts at the grocery store where she works. The cashier doubt she'd be getting a raise. Were it not required by the higher minimum. We still need to keep pushing for weird because hopefully people like me will be able to actually make it every month. Jelly says it's a shame when a grocery store worker has to choose between buying food and paying her bills
Fabulous Fabre Breaks Enable's Heart: Paris Longchamp Review
"Before we get the analysis from everybody just listen back to the dulcet tones of the commentator as enabled bid for history only to be stopped by the French lock detailed and magic come comfortably through guy off his folded look at enable he's chasing magical doubt success in Japan under pressure on the near side and hey goes frank healed enable but salts acids matching strides with Japan on the nearside vowed coast behind those people now goes by a couple of links vowed guys on the near side as Paul Success it's a naval in Frankie dettori flout guys to get him down and they both felt geist telcos comes filed guys it didn't win it from a Naval Second Sought Saas Win Kim bean this is going to be history in the making too all of a sudden heartbreak and yet at the same time a huge admiration for VOLCIC's we'll deal with him first of all because to the winner goes the spoils Jane the spring that was plugging the audio from air to ensure that there would be no interference to the throw things you get on the back of a door that you notice three things clearly it works brilliantly macbook macbook any way to be fair he is a very high class group one horse it did look though able was about to win he's stayed on very very strongly to get there he was an unlucky fourth in the race last year Jane being there watching it what was the experience like what it was like leaving the balloon there was an Arabian race just before the Ark and we decided we would stay we would watch that race from the stands report for a solid Turkey five minutes so we could hold our positions for the are and when we went to a at even at that stage to find a cease was it was a difficult thing you know everybody was trying to get vantage point as best they code and everybody was in team because you could feel even when she paraded pre ace like the the crowd erupted into applause when when she walked out in front of the sand it was like being I've never been at Wimbledon Serena Williams laser federal or one of the that's what it felt like and it was smoke we have to talk with winner I I think the tactics of the race for fascinating if you want backlog geist was hired off the Brighton for the first four furlongs race which really reflects the pace that was on Frankie you see usually there is pace on in an arc but it's usually set by pacemakers and you can comfortably live pacemaker off flavor six lengths because you're you know you're you're thinking they're going to come back for when you have a heartache magical whatever the magic going forward you cannot afford give her silence so I think Frankie was was aware of that and he sat closer to the pace on on a hot pace than he probably would ideally do he turned in and he did exactly what he did last year Vagelos at this stage is after you know getting a chance to find these fees and unable cakes eighteen hundred meters is also a furlong Hafthoz Frankie goes for home remembering no I don't think any winter came up the ray all day it was extremely testing ground heavy ground and she just the last fifty yard started to swim and that's where guys outstayed her essentially outstayed her he's a bottle hardened Asahara Sandra five does not persevere with horses into their five-year-old career I'm put him in an arc every year so full credit to him he's really J- Anyway and he's really admirable than that he runs straight and true for his Reuter every time and he he turns up in all those group ones King George Prix Ganay I think the fourth or fifth Fifth Group One so full credit to him and he's connections because he's a home bread and I'm sure the amland contingent tweet grace satisfaction from this the I I swear to God when when we were in in the in the stands when she got passed it was like somebody just ghost was you could see combing you could see this she was she was reading altered last fifty yards Frankie put his whip down and he nursed her home because he he knew she was be and rightly so when she came back stands erupted again and she got as much of a rough option is if she had won the race just before we go into full detail of Volkov and enable you were talking about the atmosphere and I thought and look at that aces that we do this podcast for so I have no obligation to pick up Scott sports racing but fairplay to the Metro Dade did a brilliant job and it was like being at Perry Longchamp but one of the things that was really taking and I'm sure it was a struggle to get a seat in the stands was the crowd erupting into darts chant of Oh Frankie needed to worry as enable comes along before the race like it just seemed to be an electric atmosphere and I'm sure or that as you said people then burst into applause again to appreciate our that explanation that you gave first of all that description of like sucking the APP is fear out of the room when she got beaten because that's the only way you can describe it because it looks for all the world like she's going to win and she's going to do it in style and then all of a sudden down the outside kind of Vanessa and indeed Kevin in an article predicted it just didn't quite happen for her that atmosphere was was probably a bit of a surreal want to to be there for Jane but at the same time I imagine that's going to be something that sticks with you for longtime. Yeah I suppose look we it's racing and the record Norris has done it three times for reason it's just extremely hard to do and enable I say the tactics maybe didn't work to her favor she still has confirmed her former Maj go and has beaten the two best euros around and success and fun but it just a heavy race that evolved is he was able to be off the bright and for the first half or half mile of the race and still have the Kness and tenacity to finish as he he you know as finishes strong as he did so you know I can't take the credit away from him I did there was such I know the AC is an international race anyway with the Japanese contingent there there was Irish over obviously to see a neighbor Cassia Japan and Mexico but yes no matter what comp you're in you wouldn't have minded finishing second to enable how'd you backed Wagner iced you wouldn't have minded finishing second to enable you know it was just one of those rare regular days and she put up a massive performance I kind of I own degree with people going straight up to Johnson straight off grace will she be retired or she stood Iran an unbelievable race in the best race in Europe so you know you can't take that away from her that's ass around really well I tossed quicken dope I thought he was going to be buying they're just didn't have the class of the two in front in Japan ran a good race as well from coming off the pace and you know it was just it was tough to see her piece for us you know whatever they decide to do kind God's these two five year old state and training because if the neighbor retired last year involved guys went off to stowed you'd be saying Jeez let SAS in Japan under outstanding tree rows put no these five-year-old's have stayed in training and they have once again ruled the Roost Crystal Ocean and herself did in the King George they said saviour and they made sure that the tree rows don't get false credit you know they they've kept our hi kate that's something that jungles it's been very keen to emphasize several times in the podcast he's talked about how he did hilariously attempting Hello french-style accent for for an interview it's sports racing but with the French broadcaster where he talks about how enabled us to five year old and Stratovarius as an older horse that this is the real physical peak this is where you really get to see a flat horse showcase themselves but these two five year olds have have ended up coming clear of everything else Zain of put on some show you're like me watching it at home you did have the nice cushion of having back vulcanized so congratulations thank you yeah but you also gotta though that enabled up eaten but to deal with with Volk is first of all these first time to beat her and as we've mentioned on the podcast several times he's never one outside of France whether this is an apparition I I don't know but he's been given a brilliant campaign by the report on the biggest day of all it it all came
"cassia" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot
"Back with the same rate network, coast-to-coast studios with our intrepid correspondent from the west. Yes. Indeed Jennifer full of in that one too at villain. Did you catch this story that in one of the latest posts executive cassia quarter says that we have to you like that? Try can I? I'm trying to be multicultural. Very good. But I'm not I'm not the culture. I am. But tough anyway, so accustomed quarter Pez has posted this little audio over a video, which says, we've got to go back to natural composting. We've gotta have piles of rotting organic matter to save the planet. Isn't there something of that ilk already occurring in Los Angeles? I don't know if it's saving anything fame statement, where she said that colleague, lower was colonial. Yes. Why it's racist and you grow Yuccas in Manhattan, because Yuccas will grow really well in New York and Washington, you don't eat any tropical atmosphere. You don't eat anything like that. Tropical fruit and vegetables will grow. Anyway, did you know that I knew it and there's a big command for yucca pizza cross now? So. You're just making stuff up. You're making stuff. A little composting in Los Angeles by accident. There are story after story after story at this week, just an elastic couple of days that the city of Los Angeles is finding itself victimized by what they're calling now. This is NBC news. Our local affiliates, saying rat infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles. Now, the mayor. Let's start with the why are the homeless problem is out of control. There are a hundred and twenty four types cases in Los Angeles. Last year. They say that, that number is expected to at least double because when you have a lot of garbage, what do you get you get a lot of rats those rats, they all have fleas, and those fleas start infecting people that are living on the street. Even business owners are saying downtown LA that they don't even want to go for a walk outside on their lunch break, or even to and from their car. They're worried that they're going to get bitten by one of these fleas. These types, infected fleas and apparently we have the, the notorious trash pile. Now, I'm happy to say, I have not seen it yet. But apparently, when people come to Los Angeles, they're going to go see Beverly Hills and the Hollywood walk of fame and the city's most notorious, trash pile, which sits between the produce and the fashion district in Los Angeles. If any. One is coming out and wants to take some pictures of this thing. This where is it? Exactly. Is it on public properties? Fence seven hundred on the street. Yes, it is. Absolutely on the street, and it's because people are living and they're dumping things, and then they vacate the area and they moved to the next block. The second you as a California you taxed too, with an inch of your life that, right? Why is this garbage being picked up? Not only are we taxed within an inch of our life. And we have that we all pay into trash services, so that the trash becoming, but just this year Gavin Newsom our governor has put one billion with a B one billion dollars in aid for the homeless and said, what it's doing is creating temporary housing and all sorts of programs that aren't working because no one wants to deal with the problem that is really causing the homeless crisis, and that is mental illness and addiction. And until California wants to take care of this people are going to be living on the streets doing all sorts of things on the street where families show, I don't need to tell you what. And then leaving their trash behind vacating one block for the next and the city of Los Angeles is struggling to even keep up with it. The mayor promise it would be cleaned up. Six months ago, it was and guess what it is back again, because as soon as one block gets cleaned. The homeless people move there, they leave behind all of their stuff and they keep going. It's a vicious cycle, and but numbers are going up and up nothing. Seems to be helping even a billion dollars. But I understand. It's all okay. Now because the insist just relationship between your politicians and the trade unions, has been seven is that true with God's governor, there's no more no more mutual back-scratching between the unions and the left wing. Politicians, my correct in the latest news. Absolutely right. You know, labor unions are out, citing for the, for the California worker, and their redecorating the Lieutenant governor's office. So we ten governor in our state is aleni, Kuna lactose try to write that name out. She was. Good. Elected last year. And apparently, she wanted to redecorate her office, and so instead of using taxpayer money, right? Jennifer priority. She wanted to have curtains at a new couch in a new desk. And so, the labor unions, all got together and did her assault decorating. Hang, we always talk about the duck corruption, but this sounds awfully blatant. Yeah. And get so much needed to redecorate our office. If you really blow your. Off the what is the envy McCabe. What was it? Thirty five thousand dollar desks, the FBI. Okay. Jennifer him. Three hundred thousand dollars from redecoration for redecoration now. And I, I like to remind you that would tend to governor's position is really mostly nothing. They wake up in the morning and see if the governor still alive if news still kicking. Do you know what us to do? She, she got shuffle that go to that trash pile, right? What I would actually feel good about that paying salary, if she was out there, picking up some of that trash, but she really does nothing except sit on the board of the university of the UC system in California. This is what gets this Gavin Newsom job for eight years before he became governor. Okay. But the good news is at least Beverly Hills has outlawed tobacco. Is that correct? Or not. Well, I you know, what depends on how you feel about all of these regulations. I I'm not a smoker, but I go back and forth with do we really need more government regulation in our life, my answers usually, no. But Beverly Hills is going to be on track to become the first American city to ban tobacco sales, but they decided to offer an exemption. They offered an exemption of this new law. Well, what was it? Fully working class. Was it for the steel workers of downtown Los Angeles and Beverly Hills? Who was if. No. This city is now going to allow Arnold Schwarzenegger's favorite cigar lounge to stay open. I'm telling you this city is so just backward. And apparently now I'll give you this one because traffic is so bad in Los Angeles. Burger King has decided to start delivering walkers. It'd be a motorcycle to people who are trapped on their freeway just making it up. I'm not delivering whoppers, along with French fries, and either your choice of coke or a bottle of water and these motorcycle riders will pick up your, your Walker and they'll drop it off to in traffic. They'll thrust through the window while you're sitting on the four oh five because the traffic so bad. That's, that's what it's amazing that anybody ever moved here or even. To every week. I think we're going to run out of things to say and I wanna stump, you every week you enlighten us even more with the sanity, that is today's.
"cassia" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Cassia to task a Sita had the same situation, forty miles northeast of Houston. The county opened the floodgates and that caused their houses to flood nothing is being done to prevent this problem every few months. We go to Houston and see more building more houses more cement with no concern for future flooding for the safety of people and their possessions. Allison wrote on our Facebook page majority of the housing cases in flood plains. The people did not choose to be a flood prone area. Norwood new construction allow for it under the law. The real issue is that the flood level keeps rising as a result of increased upstream impervious surface areas and global warming that is intensifying storms. Professor, I understand what Alison saying she's kind of making two points one that there's more impervious surface area concrete that prevents flood waters from just sinking into the earth and it forces it to drain somewhere else. She also mentioned global warming climate change. How do you see the impact of climate change on our trust in government? Well, one of the things for sure here is that whether we think government has a role or not we're going to have to keep coming back to this question where to come to this question more often, and it's. To poke its head up in lots of ways, where we lose to expect it whether it's forest fires that burn towns in California, or whether it's floods in the middle of Nebraska, or whether it's the kind of situation that we see here in Houston one way or another the one thing that's clear is that there's more stuff that's happening. And the more stuff that's happening is going to cause more of these questions to come up. And as they do we're going to have to think about how to get much better at doing these questions,.
PatientPop, The Proven Practice Growth Platform
"I I wanted wanted to to feature feature a a tech tech startup startup story story. The to hollow highlight at a a very very important important fact fact that that we we seldom seldom talk talk about about even even on on this this show. show. And And that that is is the the solution solution isn't isn't always always as as important important as as the the problem problem and and also also exploit exploit market market testing testing your your technology technology in in your your startup. startup. I'm I'm the the growing growing pains pains under under hurdles hurdles of of managing managing funding. funding. Wouldn't Wouldn't you're you're lucky lucky enough enough to to get get it. it. Of Of course. course. So So today's today's guests guests are are from from a a company company called called patient patient pop, pop, which which is is a a fast fast growing growing healthcare healthcare technology technology star star ROY ROY in in the the hall hall of of silicon silicon beach beach and and today's today's guest guest is is a a highly highly motivated motivated goal goal focused focused and and passionate passionate entrepreneur entrepreneur with with a a successful successful track track record record of of working working with with start startup up and and early early stage stage companies. companies. And And has has also also participated participated in in two two successful successful exit. exit. So So book book elope elope and and hold hold on on tight tight as as I I beam. beam. Your Your heirs heirs all all the the way way to to California. California. So So we we can can speak speak with with Luke Luke curving, curving, founder founder and and CEO see of off patient. patient Pop. pop. So So massive massive warm. warm. Welcome Welcome to to the the show. show. Can Can you you tell tell them them a a little little about about who who you you are? are? And And what what you you do. do. Sure. Sure. Thanks Thanks for for having having me me Neal. Neal. My My name name is is Luke Luke urban, urban, and and I'm I'm the the co co founder founder and and co-ceo cassia of of patient patient Pau Pau where where a a healthcare healthcare technology technology company company based based in in Santa Santa Monica. Monica. So So for for people people that that hearing hearing about about patient patient pub pub for for the the very very first first time, time, can can you you just just paint paint a a picture picture and and help help them them visualize. visualize. Exactly, Exactly, what what is is in in the the kind kind of of problems problems that that you you guys. guys. So So sure sure Beijing Beijing pop pop is is a a software software as as a a service service platform. platform. We We are are the the first first practice practice growth growth platform platform for for healthcare healthcare and and our our mission mission is is to to help help practices practices thrive. thrive. The The way way we we do do that that is is we we help help practices practices attract attract and and retain retain patients patients for for life. life. And And really really what what we're we're doing doing is. is. We've We've mapped mapped out out the the patient patient journey journey every every step step of of the the patient patient journey. journey. We We have have identified identified all all of of the the points points of of friction friction and and we've we've built built a a platform platform to to modernize modernize each each step step of of that that journey journey in in an an effort effort to to help. help. Bring Bring patients patients into into the the practice. practice. So So he he told told me me that more more about about how how you you guys guys actually sleep bringing bringing people people process process and and technology technology together together with with a a patient patient Paul Paul because because it it seems seems to to be be those those days days with of the the secret secret ingredients ingredients to to McCann can you yougov gossip successful. successful. Sure. Sure. Absolutely. Absolutely. So So we're we're approaching approaching four four hundred hundred employees employees at at patient up pop. The the one one thing thing I'll I'll say say about about our our companies companies that that were were very very metric metric driven driven every every employee employee is is working working towards towards a a target target set set of of metrics metrics or or outcomes. outcomes. And And so so to to set set goals goals at at patient patient op pop. we We use use a a system system or or a a framework framework called called okay okay ours. ours. And And this this is is a a framework framework that that we we started started using using two two or or three three years years ago. ago. And And the the reason reason I I like like it it is is because because it it encourages encourages accompany accompany teams teams and in employees employee's to to set set stretch stretch goals goals and and one one of of the the key key features features of of okay okay ours ours is is that that they're they're not not tied tied to to compensation compensation or or performance performance reviews. reviews. So So unlike unlike other other goal, goal, setting setting frameworks frameworks employees employees and and teams teams often often have have an an incentive incentive to to sandbag sandbag because because their their bonus. bonus. And And the the performance performance review review is is tied tied to to the the team payment of of those those goals. goals. And And so so what? what okay Okay. Ours. ours Teach teach us us is is that that we we really really should should try try to to separate separate those those two two things. things. And And so so that's that's how how we we said said goals goals at patient patient pop, pop. and And then then we we use use various various technologies technologies and in systems systems to to track track and and measure measure our our goal goal attainment. attainment. But But one one of of the the key key ones y. Owns a a Salesforce, Salesforce. we've We've built built her her entire entire business business on on Salesforce, Salesforce, both both our our sales sales org, org, and and our or customer customer successor successor is is using using Salesforce Salesforce on on a a daily daily basis, basis, and and that's that's the the platform platform that that we we use use amongst amongst others others to to track track and and report report on on our our key key metrics, metrics, I'm I'm curious curious how how you you got got way way will will today today them. them. So So what's what's the the textile textile story story behind behind patient patient pump and and discovering discovering that that solution solution isn't isn't always always as as important potent as as the the problem? problem? Exactly. Exactly. So, So, you you know, know, I I believe believe that that the the first first step step in in creating creating a a new new business business is is to to identify identify huge huge must must solve solve problem. problem. And And the the thinking thinking is is if if you you get get the the problem, problem, right? right? You'll You'll have have the the opportunity opportunity to to build build a a big big business. business. Even Even if if the the initial initial solution solution that that you you bring bring to to market market isn't isn't the the right right solution. solution. So So it's it's really really important important to to find find a a massive massive muscle muscle. problem. Prob. Problem. And And so so before before we we started started patient patient up up our our previous previous business business shop shop nation nation had had recently recently been been acquired, acquired, and and we we had had to to find find a a simple simple set set of of criteria criteria that that we we were were looking looking for for in in our our next next business. business. So So we we said said number number one one it it has has to to be be a a large large market market has has to to be be a a massive massive market market can't can't build build a a massive massive business business in in the the small small market. market. So So it it has has to to be be large large number number two. two. It It has has to to be be a a must must solve solve problem. problem. Right. Right. We We didn't didn't want want to to build build a a nice nice to to have have product product that that was was optional optional for for a a business. business. It It had had to to be be must must solve. solve. So So it it had had to to be be one one of of the the key key things. things. That That was was keeping keeping our our perspective perspective customers customers up up at at night. night. We We were were looking looking for for a a market market that that had had no no defined defined winners. winners. Or Or that that was was highly highly fragmented, fragmented, and and we we wanted wanted a to business business model model in in market market that that commanded commanded a a high high valuation valuation multiple. multiple. So So when when we we looked looked at at subscription subscription based based businesses businesses software software as as a a service service specifically specifically we we noticed noticed that that valuations valuations in in multiples multiples were were much much higher higher than than what what we're we're used used to to in in the the world world of of e-commerce. e-commerce. You You know, know, you're you're seeing seeing six six eight eight ten ten twelve twelve x x revenue revenue multiples multiples where where in the. the World world of of e-commerce, e-commerce, you you might might be be looking looking at at a one one or or two two x. x. So So we we liked liked that that about about this the subscription obstruction model, model. and And then then we we were were looking looking for for a a simple simple sales sales model. model. Right. Right. A A really really simple simple go go to to market market strategy strategy where where we we could could build build software software higher higher sales sales people people and in go going. into To the the market market and and sell sell it. it. So So before before we we did did any any research research and and started started thinking thinking about about the the next next opportunity, opportunity, my my business business partner, partner, and and I I had had written written down down that that criteria. criteria. And And we we would would judge judge evaluate evaluate every every opportunity opportunity we we came came across across against against that that criteria. criteria. So So that that was was step step one. one. Then Then we we got got a a little little bit bit lucky. lucky. My My wife wife happened happened to to be be pregnant pregnant at at the the time time with with my my daughter daughter who who just just turned turned five five yesterday. yesterday. And And so so we we were were spending spending a a lot lot of of time time in in waiting waiting rooms. rooms. And And I I was was really really shocked shocked at at how how little little technology technology these these healthcare healthcare practice practice has has had had adopted adopted to to improve improve the the patient patient experience. experience. So So we we experienced experienced all all kinds kinds of of she's shoes long long, wait wait times times rushed rushed visits visits poor poor customer customer service. service. We We couldn't couldn't schedule schedule an an appointment appointment online online in in two two thousand thousand thirteen thirteen I I thought thought that that was was odd. odd. And And we we couldn't couldn't pay pay a a Bill Bill online. online. I I can can recall recall in in. two Two thousand thousand and thirteen thirteen I I had had order order a checkbook checkbook simply simply to to pay pay a a healthcare healthcare Bill. Bill. And And I I thought thought that that was was very very surprising. surprising. And And then then something something terrible terrible happens. happens. They They missed missed a a critical. critical Test test result result. information Information was was not not properly properly shared shared from from one one provider provider to to another another it it ended ended up up getting getting caught caught by by accident accident by by her her primary primary care care provider, provider, but but had had it it not not been been caught caught it it would would have caused caused major major problems problems in in her her pregnancy. pregnancy. And And so so I I went went back back to to my my business business partner. partners Travis Travis, and and I I said, said, I I think think I I know know what what we're we're gonna gonna do do next. next. We're We're going going to to build build a a platform platform to to quarterback, quarterback, pregnancies. pregnancies. And And so so off off we we went went into into the the market market we we interviewed interviewed about about ten ten OBGYN's OBGYN's in in the the LA LA area. area. We We wanted wanted to to learn learn more more about about this this opportunity opportunity if if they they share share the the same same passion passion for for solving solving this this problem. problem. And And when when we we went went out out to to interview interview them, them, we we actually actually learned learned that that there there was was a a much much bigger bigger problem problem at at every every independent independent practice practice that that we we talked talked to to said said the the exact exact same same thing thing in in two two thousand thousand and and thirteen thirteen they they were were struggling struggling to to survive. survive. Many Many of of them them were were earning earning less. less Than than they they had had in in the the past past due due to to changes changes in in reimbursement reimbursement models models and and some some of of them them were were even even considering considering selling selling their their practice practice to to one one of of these these larger larger health health systems systems or or hospital hospital groups groups because because they they were were struggling struggling and and. the The second second thing thing we we learned learned was was that that every every practice practice every every doctor doctor whether whether they they were were thirty thirty five five or or sixty sixty five five years years old. old. They They all all recognize recognize that that the the front front door door of of their their practice practice was was moving moving online, online, and and they they were were scrambling scrambling to to figure figure out out a a strategy. strategy. And And so so what what most most of of these these practices practices had had done done is. is they They had had called cobbled together. together. What What we we call call a a piecemeal piecemeal solution? solution? It's It's the the guy guy down down the the street street built built them them a a website. website. They're They're working working with with a a vendor vendor for for online online scheduling scheduling they're they're working working with with a a different different vendor vendor to to bring bring to to do do Email Email marketing, marketing, they're they're working working with with a a consultant consultant to to do do SEO SEO the the really really concerned concerned about about their their online online reputation. reputation. So So they're they're spending spending advertising advertising dollars dollars on on yelp yelp because because they they think think that that will will help help maybe maybe they they have have someone someone coming coming into into their their office office to to do do social social media. media. And And so so it it was was really really a a hodgepodge hodgepodge of of different different services services in in vendors vendors that that they they had. had Called called together together to to try try to to solve solve the the solution. solution. And And what what we we learned learned was was that that there there were were spending spending a a lot lot of of money. money. They They were were spending spending a a lot lot of of time time managing managing all all of of these these vendors, vendors, and and they they really really couldn't couldn't tell tell whether whether it it was was. working Working or or not. not. And And in in most most cases, cases, it it was was wasn't wasn't working working when when we we when when we we really really looked looked into into it. it. Because Because a a lot lot of of these these solutions solutions were were not not designed designed for for healthcare, healthcare, and and these these solutions solutions were were not not designed designed to to work work together. together. And And most most of of them them were were were were horizontal horizontal platform. platform. So So they they had had really really they they were were not not tailored tailored at at all all to to healthcare healthcare and and so- so- Travis Travis in in myself myself asked asked yourselves. yourselves. What What would would we we do do given given our our background background and and e e commerce commerce marketing, marketing, so so we we had had previously previously built built to to businesses businesses in in ecommerce ecommerce marketing, marketing, what what would would we we do do to to solve solve this this problem? problem? And And we we envisioned envisioned what what we we call call a a practice practice growth growth platform. platform. And And really really what what it it is. is. It's It's an an e e commerce commerce platform platform for for healthcare. healthcare. It's It's designed designed to to drive drive transactions transactions online, online, which which in in this this case, case, our our new new patients patients to to manage manage the the purchase purchase funnel. funnel. Which Which in? in? This This case case is is the the patient patient journey. journey And and to to bring bring patients patients back back when when the the time time is is right. right. So So to to retain retain them them or or recall recall them them in and bring bring them them back back into into the the business. business. And And so so that's that's that that was was the the original original vision vision for for the the business. business. We We got got started started in in two two thousand thousand fourteen fourteen. and And we we saw saw really really incredible incredible product product market market fit fit right right out out of of the the gate. gate. Is Is fascinating fascinating is is how how locked locked puts puts you you in in the the right right place place at at the the right right time time with with the the you'll you'll pregnant pregnant wife wife the the inspiration. inspiration. Hit Hit us us almost almost like like the the universe universe gives gives you you a a little little not not in in the the right right direction. direction. Sometimes Sometimes isn't isn't it? it? Absolutely. Absolutely. So So for for any any stall stall took took found found his his listening. listening. Can Can you you offer offer any any advice advice on on mulkey mulkey testing testing that that technology technology before before actually actually getting getting outlet? outlet? Yes. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. So So I'm I'm a a huge huge believer believer in in validating validating as as cheaply cheaply cost cost effectively effectively and and efficiently efficiently as as possible possible you you really really want want to to try try to to test test your your idea idea really really quickly quickly and and not not spend spend a a lot lot of of money money and and not not make make a a big big investment investment to to determine determine can can this this be be a a big big business business or or not? not? So So I'll I'll give give you you a a couple couple of of examples. examples. So So our our previous previous business business prior prior to to patient patient pop. pop. We We had had started started a a business business called called shop shop nation, nation, which which was was ecommerce ecommerce marketing marketing platform, platform, and and with with our our initial initial product product there, there, we we went went out, out, and and we we interviewed interviewed a a bunch bunch of of consumers consumers we we wanted wanted to to find find out out what what they they use use this this e e commerce commerce tool tool that that we we were were building building to to shop shop online, online, and and we we sat sat down down we we went went to to a a couple couple of of universities, universities, and and we we had had them them use use the the actual actual prototype, prototype, and and we we collected collected feedback feedback and and just just about about every every student student that that we we talked talked to to told told us us they they loved loved it. it. And And that that they they would would absolute. absolute. Use Use it. it. But But when when we we launched launched it it we we saw saw very very little little traction. traction. And And what what I I what what we we learned. learned. There There was was if if you you as as a a founder founder of of going going out, out, and and you're you're asking asking someone someone to to test test something something you you certainly certainly don't don't want want to to ask ask friends friends or or family family members. members. But But even even if if you're you're asking asking a a stranger, stranger, and and they they know know the the context context that that you're you're founder, founder, and and it's it's the the product product that that you're you're building building they're they're probably probably going going to to give give you you positive positive feedback feedback and and you're you're going going to to have have a a false false positive. positive. And And so so when when we we started started patient patient pop pop rather rather than than going going out out and and interviewing interviewing and and ask ask them them for for feedback. feedback. We We did did a a little little bit bit of of that that initially. initially. But But what what we we really really wanted wanted to to do do was was test test selling selling the the product product or or testing testing the the product product in in a a real real in a a real real life life context. context. So So when when we we brought brought it it to to market market initially, initially, we we designed designed a a website website redesign redesign the the brochure, brochure, and and we we printed printed two two business business cards cards for for myself, myself, and and my my partner, partner, we we called called herself herself sales sales reps reps we we called called around around town. town And and we we scheduled scheduled demos demos with with doctors. doctors. We We told told them them we we had had software software that that would would help help them them bro bro their their practice, practice, and and we we went went in in and and we we pick. pick. The The product product is is though though it it existed existed we we showed showed screen screen shots. shots. We We didn't didn't tell tell them them that. that. We We were were founders. founders. We We didn't didn't tell tell them. them. This This was was a a new new business. business. We We really really wanted wanted to to test. test. If If the the market market would would spend spend four four five five six six hundred hundred dollars dollars a a month month on on a a practice practice growth growth platform platform to to attract attract and and retain retain patients patients and and through through that that test. test. We We signed signed up up the the first first nine nine out out of of nine nine doctors doctors that that we we pitched pitched and and we we knew knew that that we we were were onto onto something. something. For For many many found found is is listing listing as as well. well The the bullet bullet away away that sometimes sometimes guilty guilty a trying throwing everything everything into into funding. funding. An An when when they they get get the the encamped encamped a a whole whole range range of of new new challenges. challenges. So So we'll we'll all all the the hurdles hurdles of of managing managing funding. funding. Wouldn't Wouldn't you you look look enough enough to to get get it? it? You You know, know, to to be be honest, honest, you you know, know, we've we've never never really really experienced experienced challenges challenges related related to to fund fund in in because because you you know, know, you you really really don't don't want want to to raise raise capital capital in in the the first first place place unless unless you you know, know, how how you're you're going gonna to use use it. it. So So you you want want to to have have a a very very clearly clearly defined defined operating operating plan plan going going into into your your into into your your year year where where you you know, know, exactly exactly how how much much capital capital you you require require and and how how you're you're going gonna to put put it it to to work. work. Right. Right. And And as as you you project project that that out out over over a a couple couple of of years years that that gives gives you you an an idea idea of of how how much much capital capital you you need need to to raise. raise. Now, Now, we we did did something something that's that's not not common. common. We We hired hired a a CFO CFO as as fifth fifth or or six six higher. higher. We We hired hired a a CFO CFO before before we we had had any any real real revenue, revenue, and and that that was was because because Travis Travis and and myself, myself, my my partner, partner, and and I I were were coming coming into into software software as as a a service, service, we we had had little little very very very. very. Little Little experience experience selling selling software software in in our our previous previous to to businesses. businesses. We We had had built built ecommerce ecommerce marketing marketing platforms, platforms, and and we we wanted wanted to to have have an an expert expert that that understood understood software software businesses, businesses, and and we we thought thought it it made made sense sense to to have have a a CEO CEO in in early early to to help help us us build build out out the the model model to to project project how how much much capital capital we we would would require require and and to to play play a a key key role role in in raising raising that that capital capital and and then then managing managing it. it. Now Now patient patient pup pup recently recently announced announced that that he's he's practiced practiced growth growth solution, solution, not not suppose. suppose. Amazon. Amazon. Alexa, Alexa, search search which which will will actually actually allow allow patients patients to to fund fund that that provide provide is is basically basically asking asking Alexa, Alexa, using using their their voice. voice. What What kind kind of of fate feedback back have have you you received received on on this? this? So So our one one of of our our core core promises promises to to our our customers customers when when they're they're they're they're paying paying us us five five or or six six hundred hundred dollars dollars a a month. month. You You know, know, our our core core promise promise to to them them is is that that they're they're subscribing subscribing to to continuous continuous innovation. innovation. That's That's really really the the idea idea behind behind software software as as a a service, service, you you pay pay a a monthly monthly fee, fee, and and you you should should scribe scribe to to a a platform. platform. That's That's shared shared across across a a base base of of customers customers and and the the software software as as a a service service businesses. businesses. Continually Continually updating updating often often on on a a weekly weekly basis basis the this off. off. Swear Wear to to ensure ensure that that customers customers have have the the latest latest and and greatest greatest software software serving serving their their business. business. And And so so in in line line with with that that we're we're always always looking looking for for the the next next opportunity opportunity the the latest latest technologies technologies to to incorporate incorporate into into our our platform platform to to help help our our practices practices thrive thrive attract attract and and retain retain patients, patients, and and we we recognize recognize that that voice. voice. Search Search is is is is going going to to be be a a very very significant significant represented, represented, very very significant significant of of searches searches in in the the future, future, in in fact, fact, com com scored scored reported reported that that they they believe believe by by two two thousand thousand twenty twenty fifty fifty percent percent of of all all searches searches will will be be voiced voiced searches. searches. And And so so we we thought thought it it made made sense sense to to get get ahead ahead of of the the curve curve for for customers customers and and to to integrate integrate voice voice search search into into our our platform. platform. Now, Now, we're we're seeing seeing to to be be honest honest relatively relatively we're we're not not seeing seeing a a ton ton of of traffic traffic today. today. But But that's that's expected. expected. We We know know that that it's it's coming coming in. in. And And so so we we wanted wanted to to be be one one of of the the first first players players in in this this market market to to offer offer it it to to our our customer customer base. base. So So hey, hey, all all at at the the beginning beginning of of a a new new year year with with new new opportunities opportunities on on the the horizon. horizon. So So what what will? will? Twenty Twenty nine nine teen teen. having Having stole stole for for patient patient is is anything anything you you can can share share with with us us today today about about your vision vision for for the the shave shave and and beyond. bone. So So we we recently recently raised raised another another round round of of funding funding bringing bringing our our total total amount amount raised raised to to seventy seventy five five million million dollars dollars this this year. year. You'll You'll see see us us make make a a very very significant significant investment investment in in our our D. we're We're doubling doubling the the size size of of our our technology technology team. team. And And also also in in continuing continuing to to scale scale the the business business our our vision vision from from day day one one was was disguised described from from one one to to one one hundred hundred million million occurring occurring revenue revenue in in five five years. years. That's That's the the end end of of two two thousand thousand and and twenty twenty and and we're we're on on that that after after day day you you have have been been on on a a fantastic fantastic journey. journey.
