Harry Cohn and Rita Hayworth's Tumultuous Relationship

"Harry Cohn at one point took all the credit for creating Rita Hayworth. He was obsessed with her. I don't blame him. She's my tippy top. She was Columbia's first sex goddess in the 40s. But she kept getting married. Her first husband was a 40 year old car salesman, then she married the director arson wells, then she married Ali Khan, who was the arid parent to a Muslim throne, then she married the singer dick James. Every time she got married, her box office started declining. It eroded to the point where it was shit. And her marriage to Khan, who was a huge Playboy huge womanizer, that kept her out of pictures for two years. And it really infuriated Harry Cohn and it really alienated her fans. So after Rita Hayworth returns to Hollywood in 51, Cohen wanted one of her pet projects, which was Joseph and his brethren, and until then, her husband dick haymes had come into Harry's office with a perfectly chiseled beard and demanded to be cast as Joseph. And instead, Harry Cohen decided to get back at Rita Hayworth because it was still madly in love with her and he was also pissed that he let Marilyn Monroe slip away, believe it or not, and I can believe this because I'm one of those people who's not super impressed by Malin's beauty. I'm just not like there's certain pictures I get it, and the voice I hear it. But when you take everything into account, she's not my favorite movie star or sex bomb, not at all. And I think she was like probably too big and too sloppy and fucked everybody just not my cup of tea. But Harry Cohn felt the same way he wasn't impressed by her beauty. He didn't renew her contract in 1940 to 6 month contract. And he said, you know what? I'll take the next pretty girl that walks in my office and wants to be a star. And he did just that. And that was Rita Hayworth.

"Finland's policy over the proceeding decades has always been trying to negotiate this balance between acting as a sovereign nation and a broadly western sovereign nation without doing anything that might upset Russia too much. That being the case, having taken this step, is there any concern that it might help feed Russia's paranoid narrative? This is this idea that Russia has that NATO is. This expanding predatory menace on its western border, and that western border with NATO has just expanded enormously. I think the important thing is not to use the word NATO expanding. This is sovereign nation who want to join NATO, and there is a difference there. And I think that is behind the decisions of both Sweden and Finland in this sense. We see decision to join as an attempt to maximize our own national security. We see ourselves security provider and we think that when we unsweetened eventually join, that will increase the security and stability in Northern Europe in the world 60 region, we are not taking anything away from anyone else. So the fact that we want to maximize our security, we should something that we have been telling Moscow for many years, is not directed against them in any way.

I don't even care like a medium sized back saw and the reason i say medium sizes that dovetails not nearly as you utilitarian as a medium size uka carcass. All you can cut ten ends. You can cut up tails you can cross boards by a medium sized backsaw jack plane and like three chisels maybe a one inch chisel maybe three eight cents chisel and a quarter inch chisel and of go really really long way with just those couple tools. Now you're gonna want things like squares and such but you probably have that already that's certainly going to be useful on a power tool shop if you don't have them already so you know maybe if he wanted to you could buy. Mark engage with those tools. Already mentioned you could build marking gauge to. And you don't have to move that to russia. So can you guys think of anything else. I mean a plane saw and a couple of chisels. That's it. I mean a router plane would be a good idea from from joiner perspective because i think has a good spot on a power tool shop but yeah. I don't think there's really a reason to get super crazy here if he's going to go back to power tools don't buy a bunch of hand points because if you're going to go back to your powerful shop you're not gonna use them again. But you'll use the jack plane probably certainly smoothing plane. You'll use an powerful shop. A- i mean that's the challenge. When when fundamentally a lot of the things that i focused on in recommending hand tools for this book specifically jumping to tools that if you came at it from a pure handhold perspective you might not add those to your collection until a little bit later because young dissatisfied the basics. First so this. This book was written in such a way that you have the basics in your power tools so here are the ones that i think are going to be the most useful. So that's why. I think it's difficult to apply that advice across the board but the jack plane great recommendation. That's on my list as well. I think that that's even if he doesn't get a smoother. There are times they smooth with my jack plane and and get a passable. You know so. Yeah probably a lot of ways. I think i think the router planes got to be on there. Just because it's it it is a join ary plane. You can refine ten in cheeks. You can do data. Does you can do half laps. You can do a lot with that plane.

"PG 13. The initial ratings categories were g m R and X. The M category was eventually changed. The PG parental guidance suggested, and the PG 13 category was added to indicate film content with a higher level of intensity. On August 10th 1984 the action film Red Dawn became the first ever PG 13 movie to be released. 4 30 At the same time, the Marquis Fire and Police Commission meeting is at 4 30. Is it too coincidental or not? It is very coincidental. One of the three people on the list for Wall tells police chief is Jeffrey Norman, and he is currently the acting police chief for Milwaukee Police Department. Um The other two is James McGillis and the David cells are and again they're going to be deciding today at 4 30 on who the next chief will be. And I'll come out and say it. I mean, I think the odds on favorite is Jeffrey Norman, the current one. Yeah, the current acting chief. Now that raises a really interesting question is that proves to be true. And it's Norman and he goes to our Tosa. And if they settle with Morella's turning the Marquis chief, Yeah, and so we, but that's true because Not only do we lose the acting chief A B. They don't want the folks at city. All the politicians don't want Morales back and see who's running the place. Do they have any assistant or Deputy Jeeves in the marquee Police department knowing and we're told, nobody knows this is astonishing. At a time of historic crime increases. Nobody knows. We were told there is no assistant chiefs in the Mikey Police Force. Right now you have to go down to Inspector level and Some of those inspectors are retiring. Apparently, most people who are coming up for retirement now are running out the door and you have this guy point. Macauley, who is one of the two candidates when the when the Fire Police Commission deadlocked a couple months ago. He's an FBI agent is Marky ties they could circle back to him, but he is supported by BLM. That's BLM's charge. Just what more he needs him, right? Yeah. So? So it begs the question of why they're doing this to Chief Morales. Why they've done this from the start because it's not like they have a better option. So Former alder Bob Donovan and perhaps others, But Bob's name is on there, writes a letter recently. Um, where the police association writes a letter and Bob put those numbers in his statement that he wrote so far this year and tell me if I'm wrong, 2021 Crime up 45% in the city of Milwaukee. Homicides up from a record high last year. Rapes up 24% robberies up 21% theft is up. 42% and motors vehicle theft is up a whopping 100. And 94%, Jim. Those are you know if we were talking 568 10%. Yeah, we'd be going. Wow, Those numbers are really something and keep in mind That's coming off a historic year last year. Those were all historic numbers, record level homicide numbers, and we're now roughly at that same number as we were last year. It's appalling, and I want to paint another point of contrast to the numbers that you just read. So consider this. The Milwaukee County district attorney's office. John Chisel who skates all the time. We're all focusing on the police were all talking about morale is all the time. What about the D A. Well, it turns out that misdemeanor charges are down 33%. Felony charges are down 12% the D, a non prosecutes about 60% of felony charges, and and we have found serious gun cases, for example, that the police want criminal charges. The D A has refused to charge by the way those numbers are with an increase in arrests. Milwaukee Police Department walkie suburbs are actually arresting more people. But yet the percentage of those being charged as dropping at a time when crime is exploding and more so the idea is not doing his job like he's just refusing to prosecute what needs to be done. And here's another statistic, I think will shock some of your audience. The jail population in the city of Milwaukee is down 77%. Since 2015. This is a con. So what is that? Tell you? It tells you it tells me the people that should be in jail are not in jail and they're out there real fending. It tells me that you've got to walk D A Who's afraid of, you know, losing at the next election because BLM doesn't like him. And so he's aggressively not prosecuting cases that the police are bringing over there. Despite being decimated in numbers, the marquee please since suburban departments are bringing the referrals over those, as Jim noted, are up, which sounds like a misnomer aggressively, not prosecuting cases that sounds like But but that's kind of what it is. It's this kind of. Oh, these are smaller crimes so we can't use up jail cells. Oh, we don't have the staff all we don't have this. I mean, is it? I mean, at some point, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see what's going on in the city of Milwaukee into our point earlier, Jim What happens in Milwaukee radiates into the burbs into the X herbs and into the surrounding counties. I mean, I hear this and both of you to do from prosecutors and sheriffs and was from the cow is surrounding us. This is not Helpful and and and, frankly, for a lot of folks should drive into, you know, let's put the pandemic aside for the we have a ton of people driving into the city every single day. So this really it threatens everyday folks in this community, but it threatens a lot of other people, too. That's right Outside the committee look at my nominee falls to get despite an increase is that we're having in Wauwatosa because the crime is spreading, so it does affect everyone. And that's why if you're you're living in walking shark Coney right now, thinking Well, this is Mark. It really doesn't affect me. It does affect you and it's something you need to be concerned about. And and, and quite honestly, I mean, what's going on, I think is we have a radical new generation of common council members and county board members, you know, and obviously a city attorney in the city, Milwaukee. These are not your father's alderman. So to speak, right exactly aren't the reasonable Democrats like Michael Murphy or whatever right right, folks that you might have had disagreements with them? But they also know That if Milwaukee is on fire, it affects everything. I mean, I expect this in Madison. Because People know statewide. There are a lot of crazy folks in Madison with a friend of mine refers to that Madison City Council is the is the Congress of nonprofit organizations because because there's just not a lot of people on their night, a lot of more wonderful, but a lot of them are just hard core liberal. I mean, I've seen and you would know better than I would But in the last how many years on the City Council and on the Milwaukee County board, you have people who have never run anything. They're politically driven there politically driven in a very left wing way, and you've got a million people here who are suffering. And their own Their own representatives aren't listening to him. Well, this is liberal Autopia, I guess, um, you know, having inert police force that's not prosecuting or, you know, not arresting people. Um, reform, the criminal justice systems. No one's in jail, or they're getting bailed out on signature bonds and the D A is not charging. This is a failed liberal experiments. And it's completely predictable that this would be the results. I'm I'm just a little surprised the degree of it, and that's happened so fast. Well, and it has happened fast. You could argue that, you know, do you fund the police in Milwaukee really began with morale. Asus firing And look what that's been less than a year and look what a disaster defund..

Anabel Englund Drops Debut Album Messing With Magic

"I'm so happy to welcome anna bill. England hang. Hey guys how are you. Oh well thank you so much for taking the time today. Your new record is incredible. It's called messing with magic. Which i think just right off. The bat is an incredible title. What does that mean to you. How would you define the magic well to me. Messing with magic is about kind of going against the grain. And because i feel like in society it's it's so often easier to accept that we dislike ourselves versus begging ourselves up or or being our number one fan and i kind of want to change the narrative into me messing with magic about like cutting out the bullshit finding yourself love and like saying like i love myself and i care about myself and i did this thing and it's amazing and being proud of yourself for that too so it's kind of a journey of self love and love with for other people and all that all that stuff. We definitely need more of that. I believe you said that this record is the debut of the beginning of me How do you feel that you've grown and change from all the incredible work and songs that's come before this. Yeah i mean before assigned to record. I was just making music to get it out and you know have a continuation of songs. I mean they all are still so important to me. But this debut is. The first cohesive unit that i was able to put out and it has some older songs i've written but also some newer songs that had just written with songwriters and producers that ultra had teamed up with so it was kind of like like i of say it was just kind of light chiseling away at all the pieces and then i ended up having this album and before people would say. What's your sound like. What would be your ideal song that you would make. And you know so i would have to go into meetings prepared to say why would cut up this song from the access. And take this song from robin. But then like how this bridge from. Madonna and really. It's like i can only figure out what my sound is by making

Hey hey you know. Call out to other teams. Hey you know you liga. Mx color america. do you want this guy. Maybe for like a few months or do you need this guy. You don't pay a transfer fee. You decided to contract maybe time for a six month contract while we go through these labor once researching and i do think we are on a path. They're the mls. Market is suddenly becoming a fairly desirable market from players. Now that could change and it fluctuates and it moves around. But i think that that is other than the players suddenly making once the you know the the minimum income becomes two hundred thousand three hundred thousand dollars. It where that's the only thing i can see is selling. There is enough talent. There's enough recognized talent in this league. And you have sort of the big name players may be who are like. Hey you know. We'll we'll we'll we'll we'll which have been some money you know we're making fifty million dollars you know. We have that money we can chip in. I think in this five six years. If i'm the union. I am putting together a plan. Romania we can. We can organize a rainy day fund. Will we can really sort of shield ourselves at the very lease and also developed develop a network figure out a way to get in you know once we start per approaching the collective bargaining agreement. Start you know going to some of these teams may be an in figuring out a way to have contracts. I don't. I don't know how legal it is. I don't know if mls would cry. Foul from probably. But i mean it's an idea. It's a way. I'm trying to come up with a way that these teams can these players can sort of gain more leverage. Because i mean that's what we all want the players that have more leverage. We're not cheering jason. Levian we're not cheering. Bob kraft were cheering. You know flipping. Martens were cheering for those players. So we have a better beer connection to the players than we do certainly the owners and certainly the club as well They're they're the ones out there so But let's let's talk a little about the cbi skin so the the. I think that the real you know the to concessions to players one hundred percent compensation this year which they kind of gave to write short somewhat shortsighted as far as like if. That's your big chip. But that's what they got. Everything was a a slight change in the free agency set up. So if you'll remember if you're a medium-term fan of of mls or you know a nerd that's been following. I would say fan if you're into mls roster machinations. You'll know that free agency has not always been a thing. in mls. It's it's kind of weird. You have to be pretty old by the terms of like your your prime And had played with the team for a certain number of years to get that to get that opportunity So all of they've done now is they've changed it slightly to make it in the year. Twenty twenty in the twenty twenty six season which feels forever from now but it is in fact. Five years from now players twenty four older With at least four years. Mos service at the end of their contracts are eligible. Become a free agent also. There are rules in how much money more you can make so again to get into the really nerdy stuff year for players. Making the maximum salary budget charger less. Free agent can sign a contract with another club with an initial salary of greater than twenty five percent above the maximum salary budget.

"Yeah And i think what we all right here was. The players still just have very very little negotiating power I think the guys in the allocation sort of the bachelor. This is still tin tilted towards the owners. Every labor negotiations took the towards. The owners are the ones with the money Even if the millions and millions of dollars that the players are making it pales in comparison to what some of these owners have. Animals is even more so so. It's even more tilted. The owners can go away without having to worry about a paycheck The the the owners are are they will shut down. We don't care we'll just shut the doors and tell me that ted tell me. This is too insensitive in into into like learned to code of me to say this but the the the the conversation was basically saying there are guys making eighty thousand dollars a year. Who cannot afford to not play yet is true. I get that. But then i also think about like opportunity costs for these players. So if you're making thousand dollars and you're at the bottom of the roster and you know you're not gonna wanna play time like it would be. It would behoove me if it's me. I'm twenty two years old. Be one thing. If i was a moses nyman or something fifteen or sixteen years old and on not a lot of money. That's one thing. But i'm a college graduate making a making the minimum. I would be really pushing myself to try to develop some. I would try to russell canal. Sit russell canals with his nine income streams. If the league went away tomorrow he probably be okay. He would probably be fine like he's got a lot of things cooking. It seems to me like it's a really good thing to be a hustler as a as a professional added. It's not making a lot of money so that there's you're not left in the lurch so much i don't know if that's sort of like learn to code when you get fired or whatever i i understand that but like i i remember two years ago. The league used to let players get their bachelor's degree. Finish their bachelor's degree or master's at Like some online north southern new hampshire university. Something i've genius. I mean whatever. But but i think chris fights is doing it now still. I think that that's you know do that because there is there. It's an obvious strength that the owners have Not everybody's going to be. Chris allow ski. Nba reserve league player and then all of a sudden at the end of a long and storied career. Be the all time goalscoring leader. You're probably going to wash out. You're probably not going to have a long career. So like i don't know. I think that the union should really be pushing. Maybe they aren. It's just not publicized. But really be pushing these players on the lower end of the income scale to give themselves some economic resilience so the next time missed incomes around i. It's not a big strike fund. They can't they can't they. Used it all. They said to sort of make up from last year. But i just. I'm trying to look term. How the players can really win on these and the the problems that they have like the place of soccer in society the fact that moss went away we would be really mad and upset and but it really probably wouldn't register on. Espn for instance or in the broader market. So that's the only way. I see them winning to strengthen their own their own economic hand so that they can actually be a a good faith opponent for the owners because right now they're just run more with truck..

"Word crucible really comes from a lot of leadership lang's literature in leadership literature they'll talk about there are moments of crisis in businesses and organizations that are defining and that this is the moment where you the crucible is where you discover your character and when i wanna say that what we need to do. When we're taking people through something like twenty twenty or any change any disruption. Is that what you're going to discover is what you're made of and what you need to discover. Is that what you're made of needs to be made into something more resilient stronger more flexible wiser that. We need to take advantage of moments like this for transformation. Thank you for that. That is Hopeful and then also a good self reflection on what. What was you know we got bumped. We got bumped in twenty twenty so what came out. what what what. What does that say about our character and What do we need to make. So i know you've touched on Touch on a bit already. But i'd like to park for a minute or two if we could on stress so Act about taking the stress out of the the piece of steel as as being formed so In this next question is hitting on that. So what role does or should stress play in the process of becoming resilient. And how should we view the heat That's produced during the stressful times. What what what is at. What's a reframing of stress that we should look at so this urban but the community in los angeles actually the president of it is a woman. Who's a blacksmith. And i went to her studio and i asked her these questions and she said that she put it this way. Every time you pound on deal you hammer into steel. You actually not only hammered into shape. You hammer stress into the steel distressed. That makes a leader stress. Makes us stronger and the stress comes from the hammering. So think of the heat the vulnerability that allows you to receive shaped by. The hammering stress makes a leader the hammering. So that happens either in leader in the practices we talked about or actually in the very practice of leadership. Because here's the weird irony right. If i make a chisel and i found into steel until till strong and tempered every time i use that chisel at in a tool i keep adding more stress to the tool so she looked at me and she said if we keep pounding on this deal we will eventually.

"Allow. Everybody it's read tracy. Welcome back to the you can. Heal your life podcast. Today our guest is going to be kerry. Richardson and carey wrote a book for. Hey house called. What is your clutter trying to tell you and then her newest book is from cluttered clarity and so obviously see the topic for today. It's going to be all about clutter. And i think in today's times with all the spending more time at home and more time with ourselves and our thoughts were noticing clutter in our houses and cluttering our brain. So i think kerry might be able to help how you doing. Carrie ann doing great. Thanks so much for having me on and just so in case you're wondering Carey do you still live in your tiny little house. Your two hundred forty square foot house share of kerry went from two thousand square feet to two hundred forty square feet so when it comes to physical clutter. I don't think she has a whole lot in there. I check out. She's a real expert and she doesn't live alone in the square pd. I live here with my wife and our two cats. So it's four of us in this little place right exactly so to get started. What are what are the things that you've learned. that causes. clutter both physical clutter and mental. Clutter yeah god. It's such a good question because it's it's such a bigger topic than people realize in the greatest sense so i have found through my work with people that there are really three. Common core causes of any kind of clutter. Whether that's piles of paperwork. You know exploding closets draining relationships and the three core causes our limiting beliefs unrealistic expectations and a lack of boundaries. So when i work with my clients and students and we chiseled down beneath the surface of what's going on in their life. I always come to one of those three right and so when you come to those three what are how do we help with that. So how do we help with unrealistic expectations limiting beliefs or lack of boundaries. Can you give us some tips or ideas. Absolutely so so. Unrealistic expectations is probably the most accessible one. That people can work on right away. This this is you know if you say as soon as i have a free weekend. I'm gonna clean out my garage. That doesn't happen. You know it takes a very special kind of person to actually follow through on that promise to themselves because the job is just too big and the length of time. You're expecting yourself to work on. It is way too long so you can handle unrealistic expectations right away by saying you know what this is a big job. The size of this job overwhelms me actually prevents me from getting started so i always encourage people to work. In these little rounds. I call them palm rounds. That's p. o. M. but that's really just a short term for the pomodoro technique. This is a time management. Tool that i didn't invent i just love it. It's as simple as this. So you choose task you're going to work on. You eliminate all distractions so no email no cell phone. That people know you're not available and you set a timer for twenty five minutes and you work on that task just until that timer runs out and then you take a five minute break. That does a couple things. Not only doesn't make more doable. Because it's such a finite amount of time but it helps get your resistance on board that part of you. Who is really good at talking. You out of doing the things you say you wanna do when if you say. Let's clean out the garage resistance. Go oh no way. That's way too big but if you say well let's just try for twenty five minutes and see how we feel. It can see that kind of light at the end of the tunnel and it'll be much more willing to get started

How Tech Companies Are Changing The Way They Price Things

How Tech Companies Are Changing The Way They Price Things

"Chances are you've changed the way you spend your money. This year from the tech companies have noticed everyone from apple to amazon. Zoom has been experimenting with the way they price their products to try and entice and keep customers joining now to talk about. Some of their strategies is our personal columnists nicola wedding. Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new.

Davey Crocket and The Frozen Sun

"Lived a man named davy crockett. If you've heard of old navy it's probably for his final stand at the alamo or more likely for his raccoon skin cap. The cap was made of thick raccoon for for keeping warm during the harsh western winters. And it had the bushy tail hanging down the back. Davy crockett was more than the alamo and a cap though he was an adventurer one of the brave people who saw the endless frontier and waited in a man at his favorite swimming hole even during the coldest winters rarely would he be sitting peacefully indoors or relaxing. He spent his days out in nature sleeping in the mountains and bathing in the rivers. Other folks thought davy. Crockett might just be a little crazy but if so they were lucky to have him because it was on one particularly cold morning that davy. Crockett saved the world. He woke with the sun as he always did. In those days it was deep winter in the mountains. Where even though the donning son was bright. It didn't seem to offer any warmth at all. Icy wind howled like a banshee and even the animals had the good sense to be hibernating. What a beautiful morning davies said to himself he tried to rise up out of his bedroll but it was so covered in ice. He was stuck fast with a little work. He managed to get an arm free and then he was able to use a hammer and chisel to get the rest of the way out. It's cold one. No doubt he said but it'll get warmer. When the son gets a meyde higher. He tried to get a fire going to make breakfast but all his would was frozen solid even the coals from the night before were nothing but snowballs davey tried to spit in disappointment but it froze halfway to the ground and shattered on an icy stone. Well ours coffee today. I guess he said he makes some coffee grounds into some snow and eight. It like a snow cone. It wasn't tasty but it seemed to help wake him up a little. Where's the darn sun. He said looking at the horizon with a start of shock. He saw that. The sun hadn't risen any higher. It was still stuck on the horizon like tongue on an ice cube and it was starting to look more blue than yellow. What in our nation is going on with that davey climbed up a nearby mountain peak to get a better view. Every step was so icy. Put his hand to his coon skin. Cap to shield. His eyes peered at the horizon. Oh lord no the frontiers mun was brave and he thought he'd seen it all in his adventures. But this was something new and something awful. It was so cold that the sun itself had frozen on the horizon. He could see it stuck between two peaks of ice sunbeam's frozen in their tracks like icicles. Well this is no good at all davies said. He looked in the other direction and saw a little town. At the base of the mountain. The buildings were all coated in a fine layer of ice. Like a frosted cake. The pastors were like sheets of glass. And even the smoke from chimneys was frozen in place. Well darn davy. Crockett said to himself from high up on the mountain peak. Either i'm gonna fix this mess or we gotta get the cows so my skates he thought about cows skating for a minute and decided that they wouldn't like it that much better. He just fixed the problem before all the milk got frozen into ice cream. Of course most people may have been at a loss on how to fix a frozen sun but davy. Crockett wasn't like most people. He didn't wait around thinking or planning or any of that now. He just pointed himself at the frozen sun and started walking.

Understanding Superstitions

"Today story takes place in the recent past in a world where may there's some merit with fear of cats? But I'm getting ahead of myself. The story actually begins with a chase. Deep inside the holes of Bishop Fenwick high. School. Mary Kathryn. Hale didn't hear the school, Bell? Ring. She didn't him much of anything besides the dull in distant pounding of her feet against the floor. A wave of perfectly combs golden vanished around the corner in front of her. The owner of that head Haley TRAINA had taken Mary's hearing aid. She rounded a corner then another in pursuit of the thief. She was no athlete and by the time she caught up with her. She was sweaty, red faced and shaking with rage. Haley was sitting in has seats towards the front of class wearing an angelic smile beside her her boyfriend Dylan Smith stifle the snigger. Everyone else had their heads bowed for the morning prayer. Mary Saturday desk across from them and waited. Finally, when the heads raised Mary stood and walked over to Haley. She held out her hand expectantly. Haley adopted an innocent and vaguely incensed expression. What do you want widow? Has Silent Mouth seemed to say? Mary a hint of movement at Dylan side as if he was pocketing something. His shoulders was shaking from repressed laughter. Was At her helplessness. Or something else. Mary. Looked up to see if the teacher had noticed the interaction. The entire class was staring at her. Cheeks burned with embarrassment? Dylan. Haley had done this on purpose they knew Mary hated being the center of attention. She slunk back to her seat and sat down admitting defeat. The two students loft silently a silver crucifix bouncing up and down on Dylan's chest. Mary buried her face in her textbook tis swimming in her eyes. She knew the hearing aid would eventually find his way back to her the bullies wouldn't keep it because it was too fun to keep stealing it over and over. They toyed with her like a cat plays with the mouse. As expected Mary got her hearing a back by the end of the day after suffering through six classes taught by adults who never learned ASL. She took the long way home that night from the bus stop. She didn't have father to see how miserable she looked. With, each step of vision of her to a mentors return to her mind. Haley with her impeccable make-up and pearly white smile. Dillon with his chisel jaw entitled hair. Flawless Children of flawless parents going to church every Sunday and serving as readers during school mass. Mary thought it was funny how exterior perfection often hid rotten hearts. The son had completely set by then the shadows growing longer and deeper all around them. Mary only really noticed when one of them seem to detach itself and slunk toward the sidewalk. It was a cat very clearly astray it's was wild and they had no Kala. Mary Whitehouse is a knelt down to the eye level holding out hand. The cats approached yellow eyes glinting in the gloom. She could almost see something behind it slit pupils. The strange kind of recognition. Like it new Herve. But then it's claws were out and is struck. It could only reach a hand, but that was enough.

The Now-extinct Castoroides Was a Bear-sized Beaver

"Brain stuff Lauren Vogel. Bam here. mammoths, mastodons and Sabertooth hats weren't the only giants roaming ancient America. The Pleistocene was a global epoch kicked off two point six, million years ago. It lasted right up. Until Earth's most recent ice age ended about eleven thousand, seven, hundred years before the present day. When you live in a cold environment, being big has its advantages. Large animals tend to conserve body heat more easily than smaller ones. This is one of the major reasons why colossal mammals were so widespread during the frigid pleistocene. CASTA Roy was very much a product of its time. The largest rodent in Pleistocene north. America, this very big beaver grew to more than seven feet long from tail to stout that's over two meters and could have weighed as much as two hundred and twenty pounds or a hundred kilos or more. Rivaling the American black bear in size casta royalties utterly dwarfed the Beavers that lived today modern Eurasian, and American beaver species clock in just around three feet long a bit less than a meter and way somewhere between twenty nine, seventy, seven pounds. That's about thirteen to thirty five kilos. Proportionately castaways had a narrower tail and shorter legs albeit with bigger hind feet than its extant relatives. We also know that it didn't eat the same foods. What he plans are a crucial part of every living beavers diet. The critters use chisel like incisors that's their front teeth to gnaw through bark and take down trees. But. Even though castaways incisors grew to be a whopping six inches or fifteen centimeters long the teeth had dollar edges by comparison. Dental differences would have made it a lot harder for Castro to eat tree bark and indeed it looks like this was not really on their menu. Using isotopic signatures and castaways teeth from Ohio and the Yukon a twenty nineteen study found that the giant beaver mostly eight softer aquatic plants. The findings say a lot about the Rodin's ecological niche and why it might have died out. For starters, castaways probably didn't build dams. Unusual. About that the earliest known beavers appeared during the easing. A which lasted between about fifty, six, thirty, four, million years ago. New evidence suggests that the wood harvesting specialists came along much later perhaps around twenty million years ago. In all likelihood, these bark fanciers used would as a food source before any of them started constructing dams. Since as fed on aquatic plants, its survival would have depended on wetland habitats. The animal was highly successful for a time cast Roy these fossils representing at least two distinct species have been documented in the Great Plains the Great Lakes, the American South Alaska and numerous Canadian provinces. Unfortunately for the mega sized beaver north. America. became warmer and drier after the last ice age ended wetlands grew scarcer as a result. Today's beavers used their logging skills to reshape the land around them so that it meets their needs with some well placed would in the nearest stream, a determined beaver engineer brand-new Pons. Yet if Castro Reuters didn't harvest would or build dams, it couldn't followed suit. So theoretically decline in natural wetlands left the giant beaver more susceptible to extinction. Last of these creatures perished around ten thousand years ago.

"Hey, everybody today I'm sitting down with Gary. Rogowski director of the North. Westwood Read Studio. He has written and contributed to well over half dozen books as well as being a frequent contributing author to several woodworking magazines in nineteen ninety-seven, he opened the northwest woodworking studio to share his experience and skills to those woodworkers seeking to advance their abilities in the woodshop this morning I will be talking to Gary about his school and the new online programs. The school has developed to help us. Keep learning while being safe in this pandemic Gary. Thank you for joining me and welcome to its would thank you Daniel Pleasure to be here. And as we were talking before the show life is interesting. and not in not necessarily in a good way. So. We're going to talk about some of the things you're doing to continue the education of Woodworkers, even though we have to stay distant right right well, it's. Shutdown mid March. Like a lot of businesses and Boy It sure focuses on what's important, didn't it? I mean. Oh, yeah, it tears away a lot of the you know. I wish and I want things you okay. Here's the reality running in a new right. Oh yeah, it's. It was real eye opening and I. Don't know about you but I was. I was very busy each day and I got nothing done. I was like yeah. I was just spinning my wheels for for weeks. But I totally understand that I would go out into the woodshop into. Do some work and I just wasn't focused. You know and when that happens, you start making mistakes and it's on. I need to walk away from this right, and but slowly getting back to it, so it's nice yeah. Yeah I've been I've been getting back to it as well and. Had A conversation with one of my. Distance mastery students and his approach was was interesting, he said. Every week I get a little project. Done doesn't matter what it is. It can be just a dumb thing for the shop or for the House Sir. Anything, but he's. He gets that sense of accomplishment instead of. And putting in another few hours on A. Month long project. He's finishing things and. Those little victories I think are important these. Out Definitely and you know when we complete a project. Like you said it could be something stupid. something. You want somebody need just something you WanNa. Try after that it makes you feel better. Yeah, you know that you're still producing this stuff that you love right. and. My choice of words was wrong. It's it's never stupid I in fact, enjoy the stuff I built for myself at the bench more than most of the other things that I make. Try to make them nice and. Put a nice little twist. Donham and Them to use. That's always kind of Nice at the bench to build myself a Senate jurors and Every time I've done that. I've said to myself. What am I? GonNa put in these things, and then by the end of the day after I finished the drawers their filled. They're always feel. Yeah I. Just started working a little bit with some resin and things like that just. Know. If I have a friend that does it and just he's inspired me to try it. uh-huh! Yeah so let's let's talk about. The new things for the woodworking school, and and how you're. Taking it forward in our current situation. Well I've been thinking about this for a long time. And that is doing some online classes and I was thinking of doing some episodic things where I would. Talk about. Some topics so I bought A. Place out in the country several years ago and it's a mess and there's tons of work to be done. And I was sitting in the shop there one day, and I said. This is, this is my fifth shop a set up. Maybe I should talk about that, so that's. Sort of where the idea was born for me, I thought well. I'll do a series of videos. On setting up shop. And then pandemic it and I thought well. Time to. Move this forward and then fortuitously student of mine. Who is? In the Tech Industry and Knows computers like I know chisels. So Nice to be able to say row. Hey. What's what's going on here and he can just? Fix things so. He's helping me out and we're starting to online lectures next week on Wednesday July first. and. Seeing how that goes! We've got four classes scheduled for for online participation. How do how do people get involved in that? Well, the easiest thing is to. Go to our website and check out our. Summer schedule of classes and there's a list of those online lectures. The first is on million. Would million lumber from rough to finish? Which is a lecturer I? Do quite often. I, do it once a year. For the general public, I do it every time I have A. Mastery Group meet. So. There's an hour that I'll spend talking about lumber and. Choosing would and defects and million would for the. Grain that you want and the movement issues that you have to address. And then I'll spend the next. Hour talking about the machinery.
