"Where you felt like you had leveled up? I think it was the first opportunity to leave South Florida and working in the banking industry down there at the credit union where I started to see these shift from design as more so as a graphic or tangible color or button style to design as a product experience. Element. Moving forward. And I think that was the transition from working in South Florida, the credit and to getting a first big break at working for Barclays bank here in the Dallas Texas area, one of the mentors that I had at the local ad agency who saw the drive of what I was doing actually called me up from the South Florida area. Like, hey, you want to try this out? It's like, well, you know, I'm pretty good. I'm building websites. I'm doing club flyers, I'm good. All right. I'm around my family, but not too close because you don't want them to know my nerves were pretty much up close to no so I can go hug them and come back. But it really was at that point in which I saw the level kind of changed because it went from me being just a single designer slash webmaster slash business representative at that local credit union continuing that trend to not just being a slash but being a focused disciplined designer. And that was coming into that first level of product design at Barclays there with that company. Now, also, you know, prior to Microsoft, you worked for two other pretty large companies you worked at Capital One. You also worked at FedEx, was it a big sort of culture shift going from those two companies like one's logistics one's banking, going from that to like a strict tech company? Was that a big shift? So, I mean, the amazing part of my pathway is that each one of those companies had a different element that I'm using today in farms of my leadership and moving forward. So within Capital One and the FinTech arena, you're constantly thinking about how could you do things as a group? It's all about innovation, how to be, and I greatly appreciate just being there in that arena because it Capital One didn't consider itself to be a bank. It happened to be a, as they say it a tech company that so happens to be a bank. And that opportunity of being with instant innovation all the time and blue sky thinking and being able to stop projects from releasing and saying, hey, wait a second. Was that innovative enough? Are we really proud of this thing to the introduction of service design and introduction of critical thinking and the folks from audio coming in and kind of miss merging into that as well? Capital One taught me some of the college of product thinking and design external to school, external to that other layer of just design as a button color or movement. Okay. Capital One gave me the piece of grounding then moving into FedEx. It was like, wait a second. I've learned all of these things. I can put these things to use. Do you want to see them? And they're like, now we're a little bit more safe here. We just have it was like. Yeah. But I think the logistics side of FedEx taught me the technical aspect of what an engineer actually has to do in order for packages to arrive at a certain time. Understanding and I'll never forget this quote. From one of the engineers, he basically said to me, how do you build a tank? And I was like, what do you mean? Military bills tanks. Send a request to the military. They build a tank. He was like, no, if you had to build a tank yourself, how would you start? And I think this is similar to your clock challenge here, where an engineer thinking about a tank is going to be the larger items first and then start going into the cogs of the tank and building the cogs to get back out to the larger things. Having a base building in and then starting building out the shell of the tank and the color of the team. None of that matters to them. And that gave me the perspective of how an engineer thinks versus a pen fix versus a designer thing. So wrapping all of that around and I'm turning the corner here and going back to where I met at Microsoft, it was the critical thinking and also being able to take chances at Capital One. Also along with the technical understanding and saying, hey, I can't go build this tank without these particular cogs. They're important to somebody. They're important to the experience. And then they're also important to the team that's building it. So how do I become a technical designer slash team player and then entering into one of the largest tech companies in the world? How do you mash up all of that experience into something and make sure that you've you can speak the engineering language you can speak BPM language and you also provide the quality and also the confidence within a customer using this product moving forward. So that's someone hopefully answering that question in the best way. No, no, that makes a lot of sense. I mean, I think that you always want to think about how you can transfer skills when you're going from one really big, I think type of company to another one. And granted all of these do have tech sort of at their core in some way. You're just using that tech to solve different problems. Right. Right. And I think doing that and also keeping the duality of going back to football. You know, no man left behind or no person left behind. And going back and sitting having lunch with the engineers sitting next to them and saying like, hey, show me what you did, because that was kind of dope. How did you do that? Spending the time to get to know your teammates, getting the time to actually make this analogy. Football, there's 93 plays to a game. How many times have you talked to your coworkers in a week? How could you start to understand what they're going through? How could you start to extend your team and actually give them the same type of camaraderie that they're looking for? Because you are spending a lot of time with that person. So just anchoring back those principles inside of the duality of also having the technical chops to talk shop if you needed to. Yeah. And you know, one other interesting thing, you know, and you sort of talked about this, I think a little bit at the top of the interview was that you've also maybe not at each of these companies, but certainly you did this at Capital One and now Microsoft. You know, you started these these black ERGs was an important for you to sort of build that community as you started,.

"Able to see those classes actually happened, gave me an opportunity to wait a second. They're doing what I was doing, but drawing, but they're making stuff move. They make in their drawings move. How is that happening? Wait a second. And I think after talking with the professor that night, I actually went in the next day and changed my major to art. And then started to go down this path of being the football player leaving practice with an easel. Across the football field with an easel and all of my art mysterios and running it to the art lab. And of course sitting in the corner because pretty much I'm just leaving football practice and fresh hours but still just leaving football practice four hours of practice. So I dealt with that dynamic for two more years and it was incredibly beneficial for me. Just simply because it started to introduce me into graphic design. I was always exposed to graphic design via bubble letters, airbrush tees, just drawing certain things for certain people, but just didn't know that it was actual profession behind it. And being able to make that correlation there kind of sparked my career into the design world. Yeah, so getting that exposure to it knowing that this is something it's an option that you can take because prior to that design was something that you just sort of consumed. Like you mentioned in these sort of like bubble letters and stuff like that. But now knowing like, oh wait, I can do that too. I can make that. I mean, even that whole setup about leaving football practice and going to our class with the easel. Sounds like a feel good holiday movie or something. I mean, if you ever want to transcribe that into a story, I bit hallmark, pick it up. That sounds pretty dope. I may have to do that. That's a good idea. Yeah, so what were those like early days post college like in terms of your career? You graduated now you were majoring in graphic design. What was next after that? You know, it was the real world posting its first challenge to me. I think that first challenge to me was getting into an internship well as a football player, you're spending 40 hours a week on football. So you're not able to kind of go away and market yourself to other agencies and say like, hey, I'm a designer. I could do these things. It just wasn't acceptable, or it wasn't available for you. But in my case, the real world slapped that was put in front of me was I in order to work my internship, which I finally got at a local ad agencies, shown you with some partners there Topeka Kansas. I was only able to do that internship on Fridays from roughly 8 a.m. to three p.m.. In order to be able to do that, finish with school, but of course I have to make money somehow. So I hustled my way into talking to a Topeka youth project, a local small school that taught kids that were 15 to 21 jobs and life skill readiness. So it was my job to go out to the local fast food restaurants, the local libraries. Anybody who had a job for 18 and actually become a business representative and pitch the school to that company to say, hey, I know you manager and I know this kid that I just taught this class. You guys sound like you'll be a great match. You should probably hire this kid. Right? Getting the kid higher that was the first indication of negotiation and stakeholder like agreements, right? Knowing how to actually have those conversations, right? While doing that, I was only able to work, I believe it was 28 hours a week or 25 hours a week with that company. In order to do that as a business representative, I bargained to say, hey, let me help you with your website and your logo as well. So I'll do your website and your logo and I'll also be your business representative. I was doing that. So a normal day for me post college and this is how bad I really wanted to be in this world of design. I worked from 8 a.m. to roughly about three p.m., Monday through Wednesday at the typical youth project on Tuesday through Thursday. I was working overnight shift at FedEx, unloading trucks. So pretty much from roughly about three a.m. to 7 a.m. and then in between the Thursday to Friday, I was also unloading packages to target and basically being a target shelf stocker. All so that I can get the internship completed and also get the first level of experience out of the way. Now, I'm not saying that, you know, most designers now coming out of college don't have to worry about those types of stories and those types of hustles, but it was just a slightly different from me being in a small town and just wanting to make this work so bad and not wanting to go back home and say like, you know, hey, I didn't do it and make it. That was the start of hard work makes something out of you. But then also hard work increase the character that you need. As you continue to progress. You are hustling. Listen, man had to happen. That reminds me a lot of there's another guest we had on the show several several years ago. His name is Ben lindo. He's an industrial engineer out of, I think he's on affiliate Pittsburgh, one of the two, but he was mentioning how he would do design school. He was doing design school, and it was a UPS driver at the same time. And like would come to class in his UPS uniform and the teacher would always have something to say and that kind of thing. But he made it work. I mean, you know, when you're out there on your own, you have to hustle to make that, you know, it's going to make that happen. You have to make those sacrifices, those compromises, and it sounds like you really, really hustled to make that happen. So props to you. Exactly, exactly, and I think it benefited me a lot just because I was exposed to so many different conversations. So many levels of small talk. Yeah. So many levels of strategy. I knew that I can unload a semi truck of boxes from FedEx and under an hour. An under 56 minutes holding that record doing that, right? But I also knew the pattern of if I unload the boxes too fast on the belt, it could stop the belt. And then pretty much that makes the day longer for other people that are behind me. So it's just so many lessons that are there through on that first year out of college. Yeah, I mean, it really teaches you the value of hard work, too, you know? I mean, I think it's one thing if you're going to school and you manage to land that super cushy gig right out of school and it's not too hard but not too easy, like it's just kind of a Goldilocks kind of situation. But I mean, there's another thing when you get out and you really have to hustled like carve your way into a position or to get to a point where you're gonna be, you know, hopefully setting yourself up for the future in a good way, you know? Exactly, exactly. I think, you know, just being the first of the family to go to college first of the family to graduate college. You knew and understood you are your help. It wasn't something else that, you know, you can wait on you were your help. You were ascending this index avenue and arena so that you can then help your family on the back end of it. Yeah, like you said, you know, it's that thing where you don't want to go back home like defeated. You don't want to go back home like, oh, I couldn't make it. Like you sort of, that also pushes you and drives you to succeed as well. That feeling. Yes. Yes. So you worked for a number of companies between being in Kansas, being in Florida being in Texas, work for a lot of places. When you look back at your career now that you're at Microsoft, do you feel like there was a particular moment or a particular job or anything.

"External to the company as well. That sort of feeds into what I was gonna ask. What sorts of things are is the group doing internally and in the larger community, but recruitment sounds like a big part, at least of that external, I guess outreach of the group. Is that right? Indeed, indeed. I think if we look at just some of the general grounding of the group itself, it's based in on not just looking at one form of design. So that's one of the biggest differences there. It's not just a UX designer and you're a part of the group. It's more so of design with the capital D as its reference from our fearless leader Sterling. It is design. It's research. It's producers. It's data science, motion designers, audio designers, front end development, illustration, all of these people are a part of the group. And the key points there is getting into the intentional community to influence diversity. So influencing diversity internal to therefore make it external. Just creating that ripple so that we can continue to build from the inside out and doing that it was growing the community itself by creating teams channel as safe places. Along with the opportunity to share out hackathons right now, anybody in the group can kind of spin up a opportunity for someone to have a review and they can basically get started and you'll have multiple people join in and give them feedback. And it's different because you're getting feedback from friends in that sense, right? You know, I could tell you nah brought us, not gonna make it. That may not make it for yeah, since I like that. That's gonna be amazing, right? And it'll be a little bit different because it kind of feels that it's coming from that place that we get most of our things from that feel safe for us. So continuing to drive that type of community was important to us and doing it internally through the community piece, but then also reaching out to external to the community and going after middle schools and high schools and also HBCUs. Last year, we had a couple of events where we actually partnered with some of the HBCUs out there to kind of expose the craft of design to them. Interesting. You know, when I was in an HBCU 27 years ago, one of the first company one of the first tech companies I interviewed with was Microsoft. And actually, I mean, I think I've told this story on the podcast before. I'm well outside of college now, so I can sort of tell the story how I scan my way in there. But essentially I was as a math major in college. And my whole thing was I was part of this program that was sponsored by NASA like my scholarship and everything. And so the goal was like, oh, when you graduate college, you're going to work for one of these NASA facilities. I had already interned at two NASA facilities so in my mind, I'm thinking boom, career set when I graduate, NASA, right? 9 11 happens. When that happened, the funding from my program got pulled and it went towards Homeland Security. And so this whole guarantee of like, oh, well, you're gonna work for NASA when you graduate, completely gone. So I'm like, damn, I gotta find a way to like. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I graduate because I was working at the high museum selling tickets for like 8 70 an hour, like not making, you know, no real kind of money. And it really had no prospects of career stuff, but I had sort of gotten in really good with the computer science department with the secretary there. Shout out to misses banks. I don't know if she's even still there or not. But got in really good with her started hanging out in the computer lab and stuff, started hanging out in her office and that got me access to this interview book. And the interview book was basically, you know, juniors and seniors that were interviewing with all these companies and all you had to do was just kind of like slip your resume in, put your name down. And I was like, I'm just gonna slip my reservation there. And write my name. And I interviewed with real player to show you how long ago that was. That went nowhere. And then I interviewed with Microsoft. And I remember God, I remember the woman's name who I interviewed with, but there was a black woman. Interview with her. And she gave me one interview question. She was like, designed an alarm clock for a blind person, and she slid over like a sheet of paper and a pen, and I was like, just walk me through your process. And I'm like, oh, okay, so I was talking through, like, oh, we should do this. And it should vibrate and, you know, maybe have sound and all this kind of, you know, she was like, okay, all right, great, and she took it and she put it in a folder, shook my hand and that was it. That was the interview. I was like, that's it? Okay, well, apparently it was good enough because they flew me out to Seattle to do an interview with Microsoft and they had it in this sort of almost like an elimination style. I don't know if the interviews are like this now, but you do the first interview and if you pass the first when you go to the second one, if you pass the second one you go to the third one. And this was all day for like an internship. I remember because it started that maybe like 8 a.m. and it was getting until around maybe like 7 p.m. I was tired and I forget what the question was, it was something about notepad and right to left text or something and I think it was at that point that they realized, wait a minute, you're not a computer science major, are you? 'cause it was some programming stuff that I was like, I don't know. I don't know how to do this. And I didn't get the internship. But I remember vividly being on the campus and everything and like when I think of companies that are sort of giving me a chance in college, like Microsoft was that one company. So the fact that y'all are still doing HBCU research now some 20 something years later is a testament to the fact that you all have put skin in the game, and that it's not just, oh, we need to look for a diversity, where should we look? Why not look at black colleges like you all have been doing this now for a long time? Indeed, indeed. It's incredibly rewarding, not just to win by yourself, but it's also incredibly rewarding to see others win and see that spark in a high school is I that wait a second, I can become a designer. I could be a researcher. I can work at Microsoft. It was like, yeah, or actually one of the previous workshops with coat house, shout out to koda in Atlanta, who brought in 29 students from morehouse and spellman. At the time. And we ran through just a roughly about a 6 hour to 7 hour workshop with design and you can kind of see the amazing minds that are there and applying design thinking to those amazing minds. Our leaders coming behind us are going to be crazy good. And I think that is the reward that most of us get from that because there's a great chance that, hey, we will be working with these leaders later on in life. So it's extremely rewarding. And I would say the fact that you're, you know, you mentioned high schoolers and middle schoolers like you're going past just reaching them while they're in college. Like you're giving them at a really pivotal age when they can make a decision on where do I want to go in terms of my I want to say my career. I really think it's unfair to sort of burden in 18 year old with that anyway, but the fact that you're showing them that this is an option because now social media and technology is ubiquitous. When I was a teenager in the 90s, there was like Game Boy that was tamagotchi. They were super Nintendo. They were like, it was all consumer electronics sort of stuff. Certainly no smartphones or anything like that. But now you can sort of show them like you can be more than just a consumer or a user. You can be a creator. You can be someone that makes this stuff and to show them that at such a pivotal young age.

"Brevity and wit creative excellence without the grind. Now for this week's interview I'm talking with Terrell Cobb, a design lead at Microsoft in Dallas, Texas. Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. So my name is Terrell Cobb. I am a design lead over at Microsoft as part of the digital transformation studios. Digital transformation studio. That sounds super lofty, and I'm sure we're going to get into that. But before we do, how has 2021 bin for you so far? How have things been going? 2021 has been a great ride for me. I believe that last year during the pandemic, it was learning how to be more self sufficient at home and also taking care of the family, all while taking care of myself as well. And I think within 2021, I've gained the appreciation of changing states and moving, and then also starting to center life around just taking care of me and also taking care of the family. So that's been a good ride so far. Nice. Also, you moved to Texas this year then. Yeah, so when Microsoft had the opportunity for flex work, I took advantage of that and got an opportunity to come back to the Dallas area and get to some familiarity and also just enjoy the atmosphere that we're in right now. Sorry to rub that into what was it in northwest folks? I was gonna ask what's changed for you last year, but clearly location's been a big part of that. Yeah, and the sun. Being able to see this one. Nice. So being a design leader Microsoft over the platform that you mention, can you tell me about that? Like, what all does that entail? Right. So the digital transformation studios is a conglomerate of several spaces within Microsoft. One of those faces in which I work in is the business applications group, business applications group are the parts of the business that actually build applications for large enterprise customers. And being able to sit in that part of the arena of Microsoft, it allows me to see how businesses are specifically using supply chain and provide certain intelligent solutions to that supply chain space. What does your team make up look like? Yeah, so my team today is made up of a couple of designers and also a researcher, however, one of the things that we kind of anchored to within Microsoft is being able to go with an a one Microsoft mindset. So I also consider my engineers and PMs as part of my tetrad or my team as well. So have an amazing group of people that I get to build amazing things with on a daily basis. I feel like that's been a fairly new development within companies to have like a researcher on the design team. As it relates to what you're doing, how does that work? I appreciate research so much. I believe I'm one of the biggest advocates for research and also content design. But specifically research, I believe that they're the silver lining of experiences. And if we don't have their heartbeat of what the experience should be, we're building in the wrong direction and that could be expensive over time. I can see how certainly if you feel like you're going in one direction and internally, you might think that's a good thing and then your users are using it and it's something completely different. Responsive to it a receptive to it like you want to and you have to go back to the drawing board. Exactly, exactly. I think just being southern and being from the south, those properties, like it's wrong to run a 100 mph in the wrong way. You would want to go in the right way so that you're not making program mistakes. So yeah, they're essential to a start of the project, they're essential to the midpoint of the project and they're essential to the delivery part of the project. Welcome me through what a typical day looks like for you. So a typical day from be these days are just a bunch of negotiating. It's either negotiating confidence of how much confidence the user is going to be exposed to by the options or things that we're building. It's also the negotiation of time of how much should the team be leveraged against a certain initiative? What are we talking about 6 months from now? What are we planning for a year from now? How do we engage the team itself? And I think recently, really taking a step back away from just design as a delivery as a process to more of enjoying the process of actually designing in the delivery will get there, but actually taking the time to enjoy the process of discovery going into definition, going into actually defining from the research and actually delivering something that's far off. And I'd imagine like in that process, you're also working in sprints and making sure everyone's up to speed in other parts of the company or maybe the other parts of your team because you mentioned engineers as well that you're working with. Indeed, indeed. So it's a healthy balance of speed and quality. And I know not a lot of other designers out there have to deal with most of that, but being at a large enterprise company like Microsoft is just there's nothing new under the sun. And you have to bring in your best footing on what that solution could be next. If that makes any sense. No, that makes a lot of sense. Yeah. Yeah. Now also at Microsoft, you're the cofounder of an employee resource group they're called black designers at Microsoft, which is for black designers at Microsoft. Tell me how that whole thing came about. Yeah, so the amazing story behind that is that I came into Microsoft and previously started other groups like Dallas black UX and also while I was that Capital One, with a couple of folks that kind of cofound the black end design employee resource group there. When I got to Microsoft it was more of, hey, I'm just going to focus on my career and a climb. I'm going to leave the employee recess group to the side. I'm going to just stay focused and do this. First day walking in, I meet another black designer and say, and she basically says to me, cheering Porter, from Houston, it's misses to be that, hey, I've never worked with a black designer before. You are my first black designer that I've ever worked with before. Wow. And that was the inkling of, okay, here we go. We're about to do it again. You're like the Grand Theft Auto meme. You're like, oh, shit, here we go again. Here we go. Here we go. No, so and then was intensified by both of us being on the same team and actually going to orientation. And when we went to orientation, we saw on the screen another black designer that was a part of the studio. We were like, well, wait a second. Where is she? And it's Zoe in and she's been inside of the studio, but pretty much could not find her. And then lo and behold, the next all hands, we meet with each other and we're like, huh. Okay, there has to be more of us. Where are we? I think along with that and just how big the company is, along with some of the understanding of designers being disenfranchised from not even being inside of the world of design from a black designer standpoint, we took that as an opportunity to build something ourselves inside of Microsoft and grow the talent that's internal. But then also attract talent that's.

Democrats and Zuckerberg Had a Plan for Georgia, Republicans Didn't
"25 of the 26 cities and counties that receive the $1 million from Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life were one by Biden in 2020. The ten largest center for technology civic life grants in Georgia are the following Fulton Cobb gwinnett da cab. Clayton Douglas Cherokee won by Trump, Henry N muskeg. By mispronouncing of them, I'm sorry. I don't live in Georgia. The 9 out of ten of the biggest counties received massive money from Zuckerberg in fact Fulton county and Cobb county and gwinnett county received a combined $15 million. From the Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life for the actual administration of election. I know a lot of you are saying how on earth is this possibly legal, while the attorney general of Georgia didn't think to do anything about this? The Secretary of State Brad raffensperger was perfectly fine with this. Governor Brian Kemp signed a consent degree of Stacey Abrams that allowed the downfall of Georgia to occur. The federalists continues by saying the center for technology and civic life demanded the promotion of universal mail in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail in over in person voting. I just want to reemphasize this. You have a private company or corporation or nonprofit funded with $420 million that comes in and demands the suspension of the law. Where the state legislatures this was in my opinion, one of the sneakiest, Treacher at most treacherous and deceitful actions but honestly, the state legislatures in Georgia, they did not meet in the summer of 2020 best of my knowledge about election integrity at all. The summer leading up to the election they should had a special session in July, they should have said hold on a second, we need to have a pregame meeting here. We gotta have a huddle. And this goes to show how weak incompetent and spineless the Republican Party is.

NFL Wide Receiver Rankings 2021
"Football is right around the corner today. We're going through our consensus wide receiver. Reggie everybody likes wide receiver. Don't they wide receiver right gang. Judge go this is a big one guy. You can win your drafts with a lot of these wide. Receivers that we're about to talk about even if you drop them round one and round two and round three. Yes you certainly can. But we'll get to some. They can get much later. That are going to provide a lot of value in two thousand twenty one year. Yeah i can honestly say that. The one draft strategy to draft chinese. I've never taken a quarterback around one. And i have not taken a wide receiver in round one of any of my drought so far even super flex even supervise just getting. We just got some breaking news on sleeper that darryl henderson was injured in practice not return man would that be a huge injury to the rams funk season is funky town yeah davy jones. One of 'em jake fog or just a staffer. The woods cup higby season all adds to a man there on. Oh i hit. He's not gonna do me dirty two years in a row. That was a a when you're saying he is buy his jersey. If you finish for you. Oh i think i have to. That's too bad center role egg. I mean i. I don't own for that would be the economic shared the name first letter of the last name. I think it's a lot gusting at speaking injury. In preseason at all the things what are some preseason thoughts on wide receivers anything standing out or any injuries standing out anything. We should be on the lookout for as we get closer to the season. Starting all it's been kind of interesting like if you go to. Espn and just look. At the wide receivers. Half of them are listed as questionable. We're still a couple of weeks away from the season. So it's not overly alarming at this point but there are some injuries that are more alarming than others. That will get shortly. But let's start with our top wide. Receivers are we have devante adams tyreek hill stefan big calvin ridley the andrea hopkins and aj brown rounding out our top six. Which one of these guys do you wanna talk about. I think we could talk about devante. Adams tyreek hill. Just be as. I think i flip flop though is at least thirty times this off season gone back and forth between the two especially with rogers coming back. I don't wanna put davante adams at number one. You know contract year roger. They're going to go the big last dance. He's going to have all of the targets that he wants think he can get two hundred targets in a season. I don't but i think he's going to pace wide receivers when it comes to target. So i have devante adam just my number one. As well i think the touchdown potential. He is the favourite to lead the league in receiving touchdowns this year. Aaron rodgers coming back. That chemistry is as good as any quarterback wide receiver in the entire league. Yeah i had tyreek hill number one until aaron rodgers. I made it official that he was coming back and then davante adams shot right back up to number one. I have devante at number two tyreek at one. Like i said i flip flop all over but even as projections. I have devante adams at one hundred and sixty five targets. And i think that's conservative to be honest. I think it is still i. I got about one seventy five. Yeah i don't think he comes anywhere near two hundred I have team range. That one one sixty one seventy i. I also kind of a little bit worried. I think this offense could be worse than it was last year and cobb amari rounders are two factors that they did not have last year. That are legitimate receiving options. I do think that devante adam. I'm not gonna say this. I think he could actually Kind of disappoints fantasy owners this year. I'm not projecting it that way. But i see the path to it happening this year. Unlike in yourself.

Climate Report Co-Author: 'The Pile of Evidence Is Now Enormous'
"It's no longer a question. The un says the human impact on the earth's climate is unequivocal and things will get far worse unless countries take dramatic action immediately. Professor kim cobb is one of the lead authors of the report. She's a climate scientists and director of global change program at the georgia institute of technology. Welcome thanks for having me. This report has been described as an alarm a wakeup call and so in the last day since it came out. What do you make of the reaction from the international community. Has it been as vigorous as you would have hoped. Well i think it's great to be having these conversations at the pace that we're having them because frankly this is long overdue The pile of evidence is now enormous. Human activities are warming the planet. And this isn't news in twenty twenty one but what is new is that we now have abundant solid lines of evidence linking this warming to any number of impacts including weather in climate extremes across land and the ocean. You say it's good that we're having the conversations but conversations are kind of the equivalent of thoughts and prayers unless they're backed up by actual commitments. Right right yes. The report makes it very clear that to keep warming to a minimum this century which would be another half degrees celsius on top of the one degrees where we are. We have to enact collectively deep and sustained reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to achieve that goal. And of course limit the impacts mid-century and for the ensuing decades through the end of the century and meanwhile china plans to continue increasing. Its use of coal many politicians here in the. Us seem uninterested in taking dramatic action. So i have to ask. Even though this report says the worst case scenario can be avoided when you as a scientists look at the evidence. Do you think it will be avoided. Well it's not my job to weigh those kinds of odds as a scientist but it is my job to communicate the core findings of this report. So that policymakers who are weighing their actions can do so with the full information in their hands and most importantly this information is useful. Not just to weigh. Whether we're going to enact the kind of ambitious and sustained reductions that would limit the pace of warming going forward but also policies to protect communities from changes that are already we're already grappling with today and changes that we know from this report will continue to occur over the next twenty years while we turn this around. That's my note of optimism.

Is It Possible to Make a Profit With Campground Investing
"Had their welcome to the show. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you. I appreciate you. Having me to get started. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in real estate investing absolutely so ten years ago i was driving across the country in a camper from florida. California saying in all these different campgrounds house like hey it's just renting parking spots. It's not just writing parking spots. However i started google searching campgrounds for sale campgrounds in my area trying to figure out. Hey is this something i could do. And i found one that was in bankruptcy. I called the bank long story short and bought a campground before. I got california so by the time i was leaving. California to head back to tennessee. I'd bought property. I'd never seen in. I knew nothing about real estate or investing at all ten years later owned about three hundred units and have rv parks mobile home parks and section. Eight multifamily okay. That is insane so you didn't have any real estate background at all and you just jump for it and buyer campground. Yes they might be mildly. Impulsive okay. i want to start with that. So how did you even analyze the deal. How did you find it. What did that look like before we answer that question. I guess had you had any real estate investing experience before that i was at the very first for rain real estate. Investing you'd ever done literally there. I didn't even know an rv. Park was real estate or didn't know what the word analyzed meant. It just seemed like a good idea. Okay so yeah. It's tell us from the beginning. So you decide you want to do this. How did you find the power. Cobb did you finance it. What did that. I deal look like yet so i started google searching. Rv parks for sale campgrounds for sale in my area and i found this property that was next to dollywood which is our version at disneyworld. Only we have dolly parton instead of mickey mouse in tennessee which was an hour from where i lived in our tourist towns. I thought how could it go wrong. I mean how could something next to the number one attraction in the area not dwell call the bank and they want three point two million dollars in they. They're like how much money do you have. A twenty six years old Have any money. This was a different time in the market it was after the market had collapsed so it was two thousand eleven so they still had banks that still had properties on their books. Were willing to get rid of them. In a different way than you can buy properties now. So they gave me a non recourse loan in for anybody. That doesn't know what that means would be similar if you bought a house and you didn't pay your mortgage in the bank was going to take that back you file bankruptcy or whatever the repercussions were non-recourse. Means you're going to have any of those repercussions and no money down which you don't hear of now. It was nothing but a huge blessing. And in sam's els book who's one of the largest owners of in the mobile home park in rb park space. He talks about his first deal and he says i was successful. Because i didn't know i shouldn't have

I've noticed that there are. There are a couple of days out there that have pushed on quite nicely. Now it's not your mind one i. It's not the real talk. Ten taught targets gallon on the.

"cobb" Discussed on The Trader Cobb Crypto Podcast
"This is your highest cried. cobb. United who i am i suggest anyway. Maybe matt ninety maybe and in that case high kelp on com. yeah anyway rider. Be driving sixteen years lottie. Da da up now. Let's get to what the market's doing. At the moment. I just video full mock community subscribers and as much as i have been I i guess to all sorts of options. And i still remind i've into the options. Are this morning on my skin. I am a nominated. A number of trends that could potentially offered opportunities four hour timeframe nowadays have since gone sort of ruined themselves to a extend which means to step to the i tau what i found just now off doing a full analysis of all the modum pays. I have available to me to try to notice that the market in how it's hard to put it into words. It's it it looks. Undecided is probably easiest way to put it. yes there are multiple timeframes at do have downtrends. But it's it's just not really following through You know. I looked analysis over the last few weeks on those sort of for our eight hours timeframes and noted that What we're saying is that once we do have saying announced scenario low high and low ally which is not for opportunities to try rocks. We got a trend. We've pretty much straight off that reversing back into the no trend or not trend. And it's it's it's just the probabilities that we've got. His try is is reward to risk Now the reward sought is fairly unlimited is an we know we take a try. The fits our rules. If that's going to be a prophet how much prophets going to bail them. What we do know is that when we do take a trade they We know the risk saw. You know the risk element we manage that risk element by managing the risk is one percent less. Now what happens. Is that when you've got a bit of a say so we do. At the moment. I look at this and go will the risk side. As a percentage probability it's increased So we still could manage the amount that we risk tried. Nothing changes there but given the conditions at the moment. What i'm noticing. Is that if you'll use to sort of sixty forty sixty percent of tom. You winning forty percent of the time just as an example than i would suggest that the reality is is the sixty percent is probably diminished somewhat on the risk side. so you'll risking the same amount but the potential for heating targets and getting a successful trade has decreased so therefore the overall environment impacts our ability to try to think that we're doing the same thing because have changed now. I know that might be a little bit of a mouth floor. Bit of a brian scramble. The water saying at the moment is not the best conditions for trading off. I'm sitting back now. I'm moving house.

Church in spartanburg south carolina and today shelley has an incredibly encouraging and life greeting conversation with her as they talk about life in the spotlight pouring into others and how to leverage ministry on and off the stage. So here is shelly. Gig leo with tasha cobbs leonard. Hi tasha i are you. I'm literally so thrilled to be talking to you. How are you today. i'm doing really well good to to you today thank you. It's my greatest joy always to talk to. You brings such joy to my life. So thank you for saying yes absolutely and thank you for friendship. Tell me what's going on today. Where are you are you at home. yes we're home. kimmy is right here. Recording me kenny. I just was thinking this morning as we were preparing to talk about how much activity we've gotten to have in life just sporadically along the way. But i was thinking about the moment in particular where you were standing on our stage at passion city recording and literally i started reliving the powerful moments that we stood in together and i got tears in my eyes i just kept saying to god over and over. Thank you god. Well i cannot believe we got to do this together. So well how special is gone. You know what. I started thinking back through those moments as you were just speaking Just for one to be able to do ministry and to inspire people to spread. The gospel of jesus christ is phenomenal. I mean wrestling honor. Yes yes such a privilege yes but to do it alongside people that you love people that you share life with you know outside of that those stage moments. We have the opportunity to have a friendship. You know where we when we come together. The bible talks about when the chair been faced one another. That's where the mercy seat is created. And i think we face one another those moments on the platform you know so to have opportunities to share together and then come together and worship is just you know i can't explain it. It's awesome well. It's the way. God intended it but i think sometimes even with ministry i'm instead of bringing us together at pulls us apart. You know the schedule pulls us apart the the Even our commitment sometimes feels like it can be so isolating And i think one of the greatest privileges as when you see. That's not god's intent at all so true. God's intent for us to stand in moments together in the unity of that as where the beauty unfold and we're meant to share it and sometimes i think the very thing that we feel called to do like the thing that separates us and it's hard for me to fathom how we've kinda gotten it to that point but i think when we have moments like we share together we can feel the camaraderie and the spiritual growth shared in space. That was intended to be that way from the very beginning. That is so strong. It's so true I think a lot of times. We don't well up until now we. We didn't take the time to stop with. Our lives were so cluttered that we didn't stop to think about shared these moments with other people. And and i mean even a little more intimate with our our families you know sometimes ministry a lotta times. You've pk growing up. And so though my parents they are very intentional about family time. Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in the clutter of ministry letter of work That you forget. Hey let's just hang out with the kids. let's go outside. I saw you the other day on your instagram. You guys were outside fiasco just playing games. And sometimes we forget about those moments that they are just as important as the moment standing up leading setting up teaching those family. Moments are just as important. And god's given us a stewardship. You kenny do that well you have. You know that your stewardship is is as much if not more to your family than it is to. Every other person in the world absolutely. And that's a priority that god has set into motion for our lives and the overflow is where everyone else gets touched so true. It's so good. And when invert that or or i guess message up which we have a tendency to do. I know i do all speak for me. Yeah then god. I think god has to withdraw some of the favor that he's intended for our lives. Because it's like you're not really stewarding when i gave you a steward you're too interested in trying to get a platform so that you can produce something out to the rest of the world and i feel like with you and kenny that i can feel your priorities all that so awesome and what it does it gives it power so true and even with one another and in the marital relationship we call it. The ministry of marriage Just a few weeks ago we were. We took a vacation. Prado is thinking. Hey we gotta get away. If it's just a week you know so. We can look each other in the face. You know talk communicate you know have those conversations that we need is so necessary for minister even in pastoral leadership or any form of leadership. You have to make sure that your house is in order before you lead others so i. I totally agree. I think this is something that everyone who hears needs to take a moment. And just say how. Been to my family you know. What's my position there right. What's my priority checklists looking.

I suppose what you do on law, and what you do around people raising though, I say this is. I've watched and Bain involved with a number of different events. But the thing that really stick with me a little things, but they manage huge amount to people. You've always also heard the story of the person that was told at school you'd never amount to anything, you taste a tell you that. You're not good enough. You can't do this. You can't do that. We we hear it all the time. We tend to hear those stories from, you know, entrepreneurial people people that, you know, monitoring dyslexic, for example, that the couldn't read or write that the with the class clown. If it for may, certainly I was the class clown school foamy wasn't something that Tom was more than just a bit of fun. Really? I wasn't too wants to go to the hospital wants to get this little fourteen fifteen sixteen according to realize that you know, I was gonna socil- Mylan path, and I had the confidence to do that. And you know, I'm certainly not suggesting it I want be suggesting that the Mike is the flunk through. But turn that sort of how I was. I do remember a few instances. Teaches with side of they look they call worry about you know, you're gonna be fine. But you can't be influencing other people to be like you do not the discipline. Not you, you know, playing around in school and messing around school and doing what you do you probably be fine. You will be fine. I was running businesses and stuff, and there was signs that from the early stages that I was going to be entrepreneuring. And so do something different with my life. But not everybody's like that. But teachers told me that I could and gave me the caveat that I needed to be responsible with my actions for the friend's and my peers around me that stuck with me. Okay. Really stuck with me. Now, what you say at a certain time in somebody's loss can have a profound of fixed on them. I get the messages all the time people sending me messages because look I do have a big audience. But it doesn't matter about the size of your audience. It's about being positive whenever you can. And that that you can still be positive if you're giving criticism to criticism doesn't need to be seen as an. Attack. Now, some people when they get criticized they will instantly go on the defensive, and that's okay. That's PayPal reacted things in different ways. And everybody's got their own way of doing things. But the important thing is to try and always remind positive. I k- I say tax at their. I've had a on me personal attacks on me sang all sorts of things, and they're really negativeness war of ducks back for me. They typically don't worry me too much. It takes quite a bit to to get to me. But there's no need to be negative. If you support people, and you help people you create a group around you, and you can all grow together. Now, most people that are listening to this podcast right now will be in there in slack groups or telegram groups, or in a Facebook groups, you'll have an opinion out there. People will read what you say, you'll have friends that you speak to Ocoee fence things are you k-? That's an important thing that could be that. Right. Question of the certain time of their life could change their life could save their life. Just the same as being overly negative or you being really rude to somebody online, you might not feel like it's anything, but to them they might read and don't forget when you write texts being facetious. It doesn't show up and takes being, you know. Sarcastic Sakai's of really doesn't relate very well to posting in text. So be careful be positive and safety cow help people move for because I tell you right now because I get a lot of joy doing what I do him the comments that I get people hitting me up in Facebook. Personally, sound look you've changed my life. I really appreciate you taking all know. Sometimes even something less intense, which you know, some people will just say listening to your show today made me happy something as simple as that makes me happy when you share positively you tend to get that positivity back if you attack able you share negatively you'll tend to get that back law funny what you sort of push out onto others is what you receive back onto yourself. So don't forget that you're there to support people around you don't have to help everybody. But if you do put your hat in the ring to comment on something or to have an opinion about something think of how you can phrase that in a positive way as I say can be criticism. They can even be something that you not happy about. But if you react to things in a more positive way more, positively comes back to you making you feel better. And when you feel better that comes back into that, positively loop. And I talk about with trading about having routines about being in the right mental head space. It's much easier to be in that wrought mental head space. If your feeling good and away to feel good is help others to feel good. So give and give back and don't forget that what you say mon- may much to you.

It was a fun ride for those that were skiing downhill in the crypto, which just held the whole time twenty nine thousand nine we don't know what to expect as you said earlier the market sort of does what it wants. But you know, how are you going to play this out in two thousand nine hundred all it might I'm pretty happy to do as they lost you on the direction of an investment portfolio took an absolute baiting.

"Thinking about what you can lose. That's the most important thing at every single step of the way. And that's what we talk about in the video is that's what we talk about in the group. That's what we talk about threat. The entire training courses. It's old do with risk. If you start thinking about making money, you typically not like money, focus on processes, what's important as a great tip. Craig? I appreciate that. And I was looking through the site. And I saw you know up front there's two or three basic strategies that you start to teach the fundamentals. Some other strategies could you touch on that a little bit? Yeah. There's there's three trading strategies teach would complete combined checklists and the reason for that. Is that markets moving three ways they go up down polls and move in a trend. Obviously, you know, whichever weather trending up down. They tend to pull back into a certain equilibrium point take a little break. And then move a game. That's my crypto cradle strategy. You gotta give these things in ninety man. Like, it's just a strategy. But you know, you pay will need to familiarize himself with it. So there's a language. The other one is markets move up down and they've bounced so that they continue to move really really quickly. So there's a strategy the called the Fibonacci boost to where I of course, used to Naci to capture move quite quickly in FOSS flowing fos moving market and the fauna ones bitcoin bright cab because markets the third thing. They'll do is they'll consolidate before move now most people will what a consolidation break. It is. And I signed PayPal police even being the position where they all breakouts. So many times I enter into a bracket, and it goes the opposite way and. That does happen. So we've got an ability that to us leading indicators to help us to Wade out. A lotta those tries it could go again. So that the reason there are three strategies like that is because that's how being tried for the last twelve foot and years, and that's how markets move try and keep it real simple. That's the focus of my life. Keep it simple. Keep it simple words to live by wonderful. So what are what is.

Really, I had a one hundred dollars stops a super taught stop everything is sort of laund- up from a strategy shorted that in in the space of wake I seventeen to one reward to risk ratio. So let's amnestying a thousand bucks Skyla out that seventeen thousand return. So if we look at reward to risk ratios and apply the volatility of crypto, you reward risk ratio go through the roof if you are trying on lodger catchy will need to focus more. So within that top ten space. But when they moved guys, I mean, they just moved. So I well on if you're try to volatilities what you need and this market has it inspite. It's definitely there's definitely a lot of volatility, and I would expect there to be slightly less volatility in the years to come as there's more adoption. But right now, it seems like we're sort of in the wild west, right? Yeah. I mean, the world the statement wall was it makes it sound. Like, it's a floozy luggage hasn't credibility. It makes. It sounds scary. So I don't know if I like that just simply no, it's just a terminology. But the wall people go off the wall west that's sort of what they say.

Done or pained all when they leave the company, it's when they get done open definitely, and how much in your groups are you focusing on on risk mitigation because I know with volatility it's much riskier than than traditional markets.

And then you did jump into twenty seventeen and there's a lot of people in the stock market right now that are still on the on the edge right there and just from your experience jumping in. You know, what would you say to them is there a very large gap compared to four x markets stock markets compared to crypto or is it is it really easy to just jump in. All look, it depends on your techniques might I mean, look, there is a big gap. There's there's no doubt about it. There's a big gap in, you know, liquidity.
