The Little Things Movie Review

"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.

Building Community for Demand

"Alright everyone. I'm here with clinton bets. The ceo of silicon slopes clint. Thanks for joining us. Honored to be here. Billy big fat of chat funnels demand giant jan summit. Two thousand twenty. You know twenty twenty s weird here. We are at an event. And you know. I'm just doing it from this desk. Where i kinda do everything so honored to be here my friend. Well it's an honor to have you clint. So let's get into it. I tell us just a little bit about yourself. I'm a lifelong you. John for what that's worth. I don't know that people care about that too much i sure. Do i have four children. I'm married. I live in southern utah. County i believe utah counties better than salt lake county for those watching. I will a non just getting. I don't care. And yeah. I started my career. I went to Actually owned a deli for while when i was super yang school got a journalism degree. Recommend anyone do that kind of pointless. Degree and i worked at a software development firm with a couple of buddies where we help build startups early stage products and then and then inside of that Software development firm we launched a little blog called beehive startups which became a pretty big community platform. And then You know more recently over the past five six years. I've been the executive director of silicon slopes which is a five one c three nonprofit. And we put that together. After you know behi- startups two guys. Traction and josh james and i started talking and then we started talking to ryan. Smith is to ceo quality and erin stoddard ceo plural. Cy and dave elkton. Who was the ceo of inside sales at the time about what it would mean to bring the community all underneath one umbrella. So here we are in you guys have done a great job with that So tell me about the silken slopes model. Clint while the consults model i believe is a little bit different than other profit models. I think as you look at it. And i think it applies to any business not just nonprofits because i don't know that we run. It necessarily even like a nonprofit to be honest with you although have being a five one. C three is important to us and there are aspects of it. That are very nonprofit. -i the silicon psalms model. I think a lot of people. If you're just a part of the tech scene or you're not part of utah in particular you may view it as like another chamber of commerce almost that kind of advocates for various tech issues Behind closed doors and has kind of these Events that you have to pay to go to and you can only attend if you remember anything like that was actually exact opposite of all of that We want it to be open and accessible to wall Everyone who wants to be a part of the community we believe has every right to be a part in community and should be part of the consultants community and so given that that was a stance that we took early on that we wanted the organization to be open accessible to all we landed on this model. The i believe many of the people who are watching would be interested in in particular as it pertains to how do you build a community around your brand. How do you build a community around a certain topic. And how do you do in a way. That's actually authentic and doesn't come across as though it's authentic but is indeed authentic and so what. We landed on his three buzzwords. To be honest with you billy And so what we say is silicon slopes five one c three nonprofit that empowers utah startup tech community to learn connect and serve. And when you hear learn connect are you likely like most people say those three words who cares right. And you know there's truth to that even but what's behind those for us and what we've built around these three words in these three pillars within our organization is the entire reason why we've seen any success if we seen any at all and i believe it's The way communities should be bill. Just my own opinion. And so i'll go through what each of these Three pillars mean to us as an organization and those watching kind of think about how they could apply at least some of these aspects within their own companies organizations so the first is learnt right And when we say learn silicon slopes what we're talking about is stories and what we're talking about is media and what we're talking about is Letting the community know what's happening and that's critical and i'm gonna talk Probably go pretty deep on stories Here a little bit later but when we say learn it's silicon slopes what we mean. Is we want you to know everything happening within the silicon silicon slopes community. And we want you to have plenty of resources available to you. It's not just news. Although that's that's a very big piece of it it's not just media and it's not just stories but it's also helping and empowering people to learn how to be better within the industry Better within their particular profession

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

"Suddenly we are now looking at cars that can go three hundred miles on a single charge right and while they're still too expensive for many people they're expected to get a lot cheaper in the next few years but now people are worried about how long it takes to charge. Yeah and that's a. That's a fair question i guess how. How long does it take to charge and electric vehicle. More than fifteen minutes less than two days. Yeah that's not helpful right so i could throw a whole bunch of numbers that you to explain why there are so many variables that affect this but the most important thing actually isn't the numbers. It's the fact that most electric car owners most of the time charged their car like this. My name is duane ross. I live in corrales new mexico. And i have a two thousand thirteen tesla model s when i bought this car headache. Standard tesla charger installed in my garage. And you just plug that in and of course the charge and then he goes in his house and lives his life. Yeah in the case of someone like duane. Ross and others. It doesn't really matter how long it takes to charge. Because you just leave the thing there overnight right right and it would be parked anyway. Yeah also more convenient than having to go to the gas station from time to time. Plus it's cheap like a lot cheaper than paying for gas is the way i understand it I could see how this works for daily driving. But let's say. I want to take a big road trip right across the whole country. What then that's where. Fast chargers come in. Joyce bryner has a tesla model three. She recently stopped to charge up at a brand new super charger in gettysburg pennsylvania. It sounded like this can hear the power ramping up there. So this is a gonna charge me fast and Let's see what car says here. Looks like of got twenty five minutes to get to eighty percent charge. This is kind of staggering so charging the car at home would take hours and hours charging on the go using one of these fast chargers takes. What like twenty thirty minutes half an hour. Maybe not much more than that. That's amazing yet. That is really quick. There aren't very many fast chargers. That actually are that fast. You might take longer especially at an older charter. Though pricier i take it then then obviously charging it at home because it's well i guess it's just it's it's almost free at home right right and this case. Brynner's charged cost a little over eleven dollars not too bad compared to gas but more expensive than home. Okay so even at a state of the art charger. It's obviously still a lot less convenient than a gas station just because it takes awhile right but remember for most drivers. that's also not a very frequent experience. Mike davar needs with the market research firm s. Clint and he says if you ask people who are considering electric vehicles they really focus on the idea of waiting to charge. Is i think psychologically waited more than it deserves. And the inverse of that is the fact that they don't tend to appreciate how much they'll benefit from nocco gas stations so even though fast charging this rare occurrence for most drivers a lot of companies are really focused on making it as fast as possible and putting up as many fast chargers as possible. Yeah i could see how that would get people over that mental hump so that they just by the thing and then after that they're they're mostly just charging it at home. Yup that's the psychology. Are you ready for the economics. Are you seriously asking me. If i'm ready for the echinacea. All right here. We go the fastest. Fast chargers are super expensive to install like more than one hundred thousand dollars per charger. That means you can only really make money off of them. If people are using them a lot if the utilization rate is really high but remember most people mostly charge at home. Oh there's another hump to get over sure. I spoke to end smart. She's the vp of public policy at charge point which is charging company. And with the fast charger you often have low utilization. Not because it's not an unnecessary piece of infrastructure but because it's in a location which is vital to two drivers occasionally but not necessarily used frequently every single day so in other words. People really want a fast charger to just be there. And in fact they won't buy an electric vehicle unless they're already confident that there are fast chargers everywhere and they're super fast and in fact way faster than they are right now. They want the whole package but they don't actually want to use those fancy chargers all the time it's easier and cheaper to charge at home. It's actually better for your battery too. So it's kind of like if everyone wanted a gas station nearby but they could just get the same gas at home for a fraction of the cost right and in that situation. And you're the gas station. How do you make money. Well i mean you can always just get money from the government. The taxpayer That is happening as i understand. Yep charging are also cutting deals with utilities and of course they're they're joining forces with automakers right because they want to chargers to exist so that people buy their electric cars. The automakers do. Kathy's oy is the ceo of vigo which is fast charging network and they have a deal with gm essentially agreement with general motors is building a bridge between where there's enough cars on the road to make money which is a little time in the future to two right now. So that helps us will build the of demand because general motors has come to the party and is helping make a contribution to the building that infrastructure so he also says look people right now mostly charge at home but that could change in a few years once more. People who don't have garages start buying electric cars. So maybe utilization goes up and this is really interesting camilla because like we normally think about how demand drives supplies like people want man for something. They're willing to spend money on it. So you know. Accompany supplies it Here's always saying that. Like no once the supplies out there. Then it's going to drive up demand so build chargers and people will buy the vehicles to use the chargers she also says maybe you can get a bunch of shipping transportation companies to use these fast chargers and that'll help cover their costs. So companies are optimistic. Then they see a path to profitability. Here yeah but. I think it would be fair to say that. It's a lot easier to get there. If people were a bit more rational. If people used fast chargers as much as they worry about fast chargers they're either be a lot more charging or a lot less worrying. Yeah and in either case. Just less of a conundrum

Not Dead Yet: News Site Mistakenly Runs Dozens of V.I.P. Obituaries

"Finally today while a french social media up and comer would be interesting. Let's stay in france for something a bit embarrassing. If you work in digital media than you're used to wrestling with content management systems cms is can be maddeningly complex and idiosyncratic tell that to radio france internationale which accidentally published about one hundred pre written obituaries for prominent people. The blame it was in the midst of moving its site to a new. Cms according to the station quoting the new york times for a brief moment this week startled. Readers of french news site had to grapple with the apparent demise of queen elizabeth. The second of england palay the brazilian soccer legend. Clint eastwood brigitte bardot and dozens of other celebrities and world leaders as it turned out the website of radio france internationale had steinle published about one hundred pre written obituaries for prominent figures. Several hours after the obituaries ran on monday. The public radio station which broadcasts in france and abroad apologize and started taking the reports off line. It said unedited draft had been accidentally published as it moved its website to a new content management system online platforms like google and yahoo news automatically picked up some of the articles. The radio station said in a statement that it wanted to quote apologize first and foremost to those concerned by the obituaries and who might have been hurt by the premature announcement of the deaths and quote. If you're unaware it is actually very common in media to pre right or at least pre research obituaries for folks you think are shall we say likely to die in the nearest future but obviously accidentally publishing them ahead of time is not the idea.

Radio France Internationale publishes obituaries of people still alive

"Radio france international accidentally published the obituaries of bunch of famous. And still very much alive people including the queen of england. The radio station has since apologized for what it said was a technical problem that occurred when they were moving their website over to a new content management system the bbc notes that media outlets will often pre right the obituaries of high profile individuals in order to have them on hand to publish quickly in the wake of someone's passing at whatever that the broadcaster accidentally published a hundred draft stories quote. Not just to its own site but to partner sites including google and yahoo end quote is fairly mortifying almost literally i suppose i mean while it may be a common occurrence to pre right these obituaries. It certainly doesn't help. Our climate of misinformation and fake celebrity deaths trending on twitter every other day. Quoting the bbc. French businessman bernie tabby seventy seven. Who was on the list of people who had their death notice published by f. I has had his obituary published on at least two occasions by other news outlets and quotes other living humans whose obituaries were published today. By radio france international include president.

Valid really was officially deceased for two years. During which time he was unable to find employment since all of his paperwork was invalid before the country finally overturned his death certificate in two thousand eighteen.

I had to think actively about like what is it means? Thinking about how I Clint Smith exist at you know in.

Recognizing the way they like the history of oppression against black people is shaped my family, my community, my lineage, and recognizing that both of those things are a part of me right and recognizing that we all have this sort of amalgamation of factors that shape we are, and how we navigate through the world, and so all as to say you know.

What does it mean if our Clint Smith and not acting speaking up for women? What is it mean if Mike Lynch Smith, not actively speaking for people who exist beyond the borders of the United.

I had been consciously unconsciously sort of explicitly and implicitly talk about What I care about an hour. I should move through world Where do where I I know you?

"Dr Martin Luther, King Junior. In one thousand, nine, hundred sixty eight speech where he reflects upon the civil rights movement states. In the end. We will remember not the words of our enemies. But the silence of our friends. It's worked that he's been doing for years as a poet and an educator. Here's Clint on the Ted Stage. Teacher I've internalized this message. Every day all around us. We see the consequences of silence manifest themselves in the form of discrimination. Violence Genocide and war. In the classroom! Challenged my students to explore the silences in their own lives poetry. We work together to fill those face. To recognize. To Neymar. To understand that they don't have to be sources of shame. In an effort to create a culture within my classroom where students feel safe, sharing the intimacies of their own silences. I have four core principles posted on the board that sits in the front of my class. which every student signs the beginning of the year? We critically. Right consciously. Speak clearly. Tell you. I find myself thinking a lot about that last point. Tell you. And I realize that if I was going to ask, my students speak up. I was going to have to tell my true. And be honest with them about the times failed to do so. So I. Tell them that growing up. As a kid, a Catholic family in New Orleans. During lent. I was always taught that. The most meaningful thing one could do was to give something. Sacrifice, something you typically indulgent prove to God. You understand his sanctity. I've given up soda. McDonald's French fries. French kisses and everything in between. But one year. I gave up speaking. Figure the most valuable thing I could stack. Was My own voice, but it was like a hen realize. That I had given that up a long time ago. I spent so much a my life, telling people the things they wanted to hear instead of the things they needed to told myself I wasn't meant to be anyone's conscience, because I still had to figure out being my own so sometimes. I just wouldn't say anything. Appeasing ignorance with my silence unaware that validation doesn't need words to endorse its existence when Christian was beat up for being gay, I put my hands in my pocket and walk with my head down. If I didn't even notice, couldn't use my locker for weeks, because the bolt on the lock reminded me of the one I put on my lips when the homeless man on the corner looked at me with. With eyes up really searching for an affirmation that he was worth seeing, I was more concerned with touching the screen and my apple than actually feeding him one when the woman at the fundraising gala said I'm so proud of you. It must be so hard teaching. Those poor unintelligent kids are bit my lip. Because apparently, we needed her money with my students needed their dignity. We spend so much time. Listening to the things people are saying. That we rarely pay attention to the things they don't. Silence is the residue fear. is, feeling your flaws. Gut, Rich Guillotine your tongue. It is the air retreating from your chest because it doesn't feel safe in your lungs, silence is Rwandan genocide. Silence is Katrina. It is what you hear when there aren't enough. bodybags left the southbound after the news is already tied charring, it has changed. It is privileged. It is pain. There was no time to pick your battles. When your battles have already picked you I will not let silence wrap itself around my indecision so this year. Instead of giving something up. I will live every day as if we're the microphone tucked under my tongue. Stage on the underside of my inhibition. because. Who has that was so box? No you've ever needed. Voice! You. Mention how much is being left unsaid and a lot of your research and writing is about how the US has failed to address. And talk about and reckon with its past whether it's slayer D-. Jim Crow systemic discrimination as you just described, there has been no national conversation here like in Germany about Nazism in World War Two. I used to live there or how South Africa addressed history of apartheid with its Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Why. Why has there been no conversations? Yeah it's it's something that is. That feels specifically unique to this country in this way, and so the book actually have coming out next year entitled how the Word is past is thinking about this question is thinking about. How different places across the country different historical sites museums, monuments memorials different cities how they reckon with Warfield to reckon with their relationship to the history of slavery, so for example you brought up Germany, and if we were to go to Germany. And there was a prison. On top of a former concentration camp. In which the majority of the people in prison there were disproportionately Jewish. It would very clearly be in a front to our moral sensibilities. It be unacceptable. People would be protesting outside of that place every day. And yet in the United States the largest maximum security prison in the country Angola prison in southern Louisiana. is on top of former plantation. In which eighty some odd percent of the people, there are black, our black men, and and what is say about the way part of what I'm interested in exploring is the ways white supremacy both violence. Against Black people, but also numbs this country to two sorts of violence that should otherwise be outrageously. There should be no reason that a prison is on top of foreign plantation, especially a prison in which the vast majority of the people there. Are Black and so part of what I'm doing in. The book is exploring like well. What is it that allows for this to happen? What is it that allows for the so many confederate statues to exist across this country? What is it that allows for? Plantations to be sites of weddings for them to for there to be sites of parties and celebrations when they are the site of so much historical trauma in pain, so many others in how can what does it mean for a site to be a place of celebration for someone and to be a site of violence for another can those two people experienced the same place in such such different ways in part of why I'm asking when I go to all of these places whether it be Angola whether it be windy plantation. Plantation in Louisiana are Monticello Virginia or the Blandford cemetery where the one of the largest confederate cemeteries in the country is asking to what extent of our people who are responsible for these places, twit extent, are they reckoning with what is happening on this land, and to what extent they not I think that the question of how places reckon with slavery is is reflective, is in many ways, a microcosm of how willing America is to reckon with myriad of of manifestations of systemic racism and and I think that.

Listening to the things people are saying. That we rarely pay attention to the things they don't. Silence is the residue fear. Is Feeling your flaws, gut rich guillotine your tongue, it is the air retreating from your chest because it doesn't feel safe in your lungs, silence is Rwandan. Genocide silence is Katrina. It is what you hear when there aren't enough. bodybags left the southbound after the news is already tied charring, it has changed. It is privileged. It is pain. There was no time to pick your battles. When your battles have already picked you, I will not let silence wrap itself around my indecision so this year. Instead of giving something up. I will live every day as if the microphone tucked under my. Tongue. Stage on the underside of my inhibition. Because, who has that was so box? No. You've ever needed. Voice. You mention how much is being left unsaid and a lot of your research and writing is about how the US has failed to address. And talk about and reckon with its past whether it's Slayer, D-? Jim Crow systemic discrimination as you just described. There has been no national conversation here like in Germany about Nazism in World War Two. Are you still live there or how? South Africa addresses history of apartheid with its Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Why why has there been no conversations? Yeah it's it's something that is. That feels specifically unique to this country in this way, and so the book actually have coming out next year entitled how the Word is past is thinking about this question is thinking about. How different places across the country, different historical sites museums, monuments, memorials different cities how they reckon with Warfield to reckon with their relationship to the history of slavery, so for example you brought up Germany and if we were to go to Germany. And there was a prison. On top of a former concentration camp. In which the majority of the people in prison, there were disproportionately Jewish. It would very clearly be in a front to our moral sensibilities. It be unacceptable. People would be protesting outside of that place every day. And yet in the United States the largest maximum security prison in the country, Angola prison in southern Louisiana. is on top of former plantation. In which eighty some odd percent of the people, there are black, our black men, and and what is say about the way part of what I'm interested in exploring is the ways white supremacy both violence. Against Black people, but also numbs this country to two sorts of violence that should otherwise be outrageously. There should be no reason that a prison is on top of foreign plantation, especially a prison in which the vast majority of the people there. Are Black and so part of what I'm doing in the book is exploring like well. What is it that allows for this to happen? What is it that allows for the so many confederate statues to exist across this country? What is it that allows for? Plantations to be sites of weddings for them to for there to be sites of parties and celebrations when they are the site of so much historical trauma in pain, so many others in how can what does it mean for a site to be a place of celebration for someone and to be a site of violence for another, and how can those two people experienced the same place in such such different ways in part of why I'm asking when I go to all of these places whether it be Angola whether it be windy plantation. Plantation in Louisiana are Monticello Virginia or the Blandford cemetery where the one of the largest confederate cemeteries in the country is asking to what extent of our people who are responsible for these places to what extent are they reckoning with? What has happening on this land, and to what extent they not I think that the question of how places reckon with slavery is is reflective, is in many ways, a microcosm of how willing America is to reckon with myriad of of manifestations of systemic racism and and I think that.

"I know this is A. Doesn't exactly have anything to do pretty centers, but we just kind of jumped to this, but. If all the people. Just were a little bit less rich everybody. Everybody could be a lot better. Now? I mean if you about wealth distribution. That doesn't work either. I know that I've heard somewhere that wealth distribution is like what caused the Great Depression reception likely that did it was all foregin FDR's wealthier programs shit of trying to get people free money. There's gotta be a better way I think like. 'cause this way is not that good haven't rich people is not bad because having rich people creates jobs. But there's people who are so rich. There's there's some greedy people in the world. Okay, they they just kind of want money enough announced. Blake. Businessman is going to spend his money. Because having money in sin is nothing. He's GonNa move it. You're going to build stuff you're gonNA have jobs because of a product or service that. They came up with. Every rich person is pretty damn smart. You gotta be smart to be rich. It's not necessarily. Some people get lucky like Kylie Jenner while. She didn't necessarily get lucky me lucky in the way that. She was born into a family that was extremely wealthy. But. I mean she also. She has some degree of talent. Takes talent to run your own business shit. She has her own makeup business whatever? But. I think it's a whole lot easier when you're you're. Just born with all that opportunity. We probably got to wrap this up. 'cause. My baby's been freaking out for all. Saying.

Look, look what we're not look my. I'm not as funny right on the spot. I'm more funny because I'll say something that everyone else thinks, but they just don't say it. So I I mean, look I talked today. We're in a fantasy football league. You know, maybe last place has to do stand up comedy at a show in New York. And I'm thinking about taking the league next year just the forgive myself that chance, but you know, it's weeded that so people actually did reach out and say that they would give me a chance. So I I need to figure out if the the comedians that talk if most of their stores true or not other. Okay. So if that's the case that I can I can do it. I can be by the end of the year if I'm playing good I'll go up there. And do it one day we work with comedian? None of his shit is true. Look the better on planes better chance people are maybe laughing jokes. So we'll we'll base off home for forming. Yeah. There you go. That's more. And you said like last place Fassi, go does comedy. I have my best friends. Do that punishment and the kid kind of inducting it and every time with them. We kind of like why don't we just go down to accompany? So right now, you can just do stand up, and he just towers and fear the guys you may never do it. He might just have to go into next year and double or nothing or something on it. It's it's a bad situation for them. I have a friend that had that had a league that last person had to spend twelve hours in a waffle house in every waffle. You eight was thirty minutes off the clock. So like, I mean, look if you need ideas, I've got great ideas for last. I mean, we were going to Colorado, we're gonna make one of our friends have to ski dad jeans. You know, like just in case you fell in in the look of of him. So I mean, I got some good ideas. If you want to change that up. I heard one where if you lose you donate sperm show, if you lose you become a father, you just become a father. Beijing. That's what one of our coworkers. Frankie Bradley was telling us the other day. He's telling me the other day that in his league the punishment. This year was you had to do your own version of ESPN the body issue, and like send a copy all your friends, and like he'd been document for like a month. And then all of a sudden he just texted the group chat or they were like are you going to do it through? I was like I quit the fucking league. And just left the chat. It's like is doing it. That's the best. That's the best one. I've heard. That's what we're doing next year. That's all we're doing the body as you, and I'm gonna leave. I respect it. You also said it was I didn't really like I didn't blog. I definitely could have logged it. But I don't know. Why didn't? But you had the whole thing with the you wanted the guy at clint's username on Twitter. And it was so interesting to follow and you were like me type square, and you're offering all this money and just tell us about the whole situation is that was fascinating. Look, I think that if the Twitter handle Clint was minding just I thought it would be funny. Just clint. Yeah. You know, like, so I asked the guy if I can have it, and he he didn't give it to me. And whenever I tried to make it funny. You know, and all of a sudden my followers turned into like Colt like members light saying nasty stuff to this guy. Like like being mean about this handle? So then it turned into. There was no way. I was going to get this handle. Because how everyone else went about it so offered money he blocked me. He blocked two hundred people. He then went on to say that that it was. Like a picture that he posted of him holding a glass of wine in the caption was like that feeling when you've got some loser Yankee walking around time square trying to pay fifty bucks..

"So what kind of tips do you have in the data out there who is walking the street in the city with his family? What could he be looking out for it to try to identify threats? The big one we usually renew it. We kind of call it situational awareness and situational awareness tends to overuse term under whatever it's still because of technology. You know, we've got our phones kids have their phones everyone's walking down the street on their phones. Driving down the streets around their phones at west they're on their phones. You just look around is few people actually paying attention anymore. And that's what gives you know, criminals, or even even that person texting jumps the curb and runs over people. It gives everyone an opportunity to be or get away with whatever it is they're planning. So I always tell evil observations are no good unless they're anchor to knowledge experience or got instinct, but but observation can't happiness you've had down. So, you know, number one. You gotta start looking. Around here it all the time, but very rarely do people actually do that. And when you do around you have to ask yourself, what are you working for our brains or not computers? So they can't collect all the information the environment and aggregate it like a computer does so our brains organic, and so you have to like tell it tell yourself or ask yourself. What is it that? I'm actually looking for in your environment dictate that right? So if you're walking down the street and urban environment wasa tar about buildings lots of people. Well, now, you know, all right right off the bat. I'm looking for people that are paying attention to me. That's kinda concerning paying attention to the vehicles making sure they're not accidentally running over me running over me. And then when you're surrounded by buildings you have a ton of X exit strategies, it could be strategy inside. It could be outside. It could be around the corner can be down an alley. It can be. Upstairs downstairs, so right off the bat and that environment, you're asking yourself. What is it that? I really need to be working for right now. And then answer those questions and it scenarios, you know. So what if thing is a great thing to do with your kids? You're sitting dinner put the phones away and say, all right? Let's see a back guy comes in here right now. What are we doing? And then they have a conversation about it. You know, and they can have almost in that conversation, which can be made somewhat fun. They're coming up with a plan that they could execute later. If it actually unfortunately comes comes to reality for mission. So you know, that's just that's just kinda hitting the surface. And it's it's a lot of what I do for a living. Awesome. That's great advice right there. Clint one thing that I know many parents are struggling with is disciplining their kids because in today's culture any kind of hard nosed discipline is referred to as child abuse. So so many parents are. Afraid of disciplining their kids, especially in public..

"And all of these different domains affected life, so many different aspects of life at the same time, and that many of these rules and systems and structures are still in place. They haven't been completely dismantled and it's important to see a major city begin to take the first steps to not only acknowledge that. But to begin dismantling the legacy of when I was reading this. Clint the first thing that came to mind was that old saying that the greatest trick the devil ever played with convincing the world. He didn't exist. We talk so often on the pot about all of the things that seem on their face to not be racist right to have no racial overtones undertones or anything of the lichen. Of course, looking at this. You're thinking single family homes as you said that has nothing to do with race. But we should never underestimate just how clever and creative racists are especially the ones throughout history. And we often. Talk about racist people as kind of bumbling idiots who can't correctly spell, the N word, and I've made those jokes too. But often, it means that we think so much in that way. We don't realize just how clever and creative people have been in order to maintain the kind of culture society space and life that they believe is best for them. And that is so often one without the presence of people of color. It's also just got me thinking about the ways in which all of these things worked together, we've talked so much about how there were employment and educational and financial benefits that were available to white people that simply were not available to black people and not only were they not available. We were restricted from them intentionally because we didn't have access to those things we didn't have the kind of employment to be able to purchase a home. And if we wanted to go, get.
