They can't be stolen unless you give the keys to your wallet away. They don't degrade over time. They always stay meant and you know. I recommend that people collect what they like. Not as an investment opportunity but because they like it and if it turns out that something becomes more valuable over time because they're more scarce. That's that's cool. I own cement. Teas that are one of ones. The only one of that particular item in the world. And it's in my wallet. I love the look at him. I play with. Nf tease the way. Somebody else might pull their baseball cards out. So i just encourage everybody at this.

"I want to talk about actual application like. Let's break it down for fire nation. How is blockchain being used in the real world. Today you know the beautiful thing about doing. The bad crypto podcast. We've had the opportunity to interview hundreds of people and also these people representing various projects. So i i to break down for fire nation in a way that the masses can easily understand and that is the music industry. The the music industry is a very broken industry. And if you're a songwriter you sign a contract and that contract is with the record label now want you to think about how many hands are in the till when a song is written in salt you have the record label and the executives. You have their marketing team. You have the producers you have the song engineers. You have the song writer. You have the musicians you have the studio musicians and there's there's others right then you have distribution channels and all of them get a piece from every song now. There has been a couple of projects that have been put out there. That have solved this problem. Because let's say an artist wants to sell a piece of music. Say sell a song for a dollar. They're not going to see the royalty from that music for about a year. It's cuddling book. Royalties right you and i have experienced that you signed a deal with book publisher and six months later you get a report for that six months but then you don't get paid until six months after that it's very very long. There's a lot of hands and they're grabbing their peace with blockchain. There's a technologies out there. Now that an artist can sell their song on a platform. Save for a dollar. it's purchased by the consumer who instantly downloads and owns that song. In the moment it's purchased a smart contract is executed on blockchain and that one dollar is instantly divvied up to everybody who has an interest in a royalty from it in a matter of minutes so for example the smart contract could be written in such a way that says the songwriter gets fifteen percent..

That was unhappy people and that this would be the future of payments they would be peered appear person to person without needing an intermediary. Imagine not needing to pay a fee to your bank to transact money with somebody else or to hold your money right. Imagine not having issues with saying that you paid somebody for something and they're saying you didn't but being able to check the public ledger which is available to anybody to see to locate transaction. They're all verified. Imagine it being secure an unhappy. And that's what bitcoin this made up is really all about.

There's no c. e. o. of bitcoin. You cannot right to technical support of bitcoin. Now if you have a an account with a an exchange say coin base where. You're buying bitcoin shirt. They have customer support. But there isn't a somebody to complain to At bitcoin inc. Because it doesn't exist. It's decentralized in within that lies the power of crypto currency and of blockchain.

I don't even know what you're talking about world that Oh my Ashwell it world cryptic con in two thousand eighteen we had Ronnie Mo ass and Vinnie Langham of civic. You know you know who both of them are alright. Concern along with Charlie. Lee was on the stage. Maxine Ryan was on the show with us in during the show Vinnie and Ronnie came to verbal spars ars about bitcoin and the price of bitcoin where it was going in vinny now in in hindsight really nailed hip tip but he threw down a bat with Ronnie onstage. Ronnie said that Bitcoin would hit twenty thousand dollars sometime sometime in two thousand nineteen by the end of the year and then he said no way and they agreed to bet whoever ever the loser would give twenty thousand dollars to free. Ross Dot Org right to Ross's legal fees and we. It's all on video we it's. It's there on Youtube. You can see it for yourself and he agreed to it. Well vinnie posted this week on twitter that you know he lost the bet you need to pay up and Ronnie got others. There's an article on Coin Telegraph that kind of summarizes it. I'll put a link to it In the the facebook chat. Let's see you guys can go check this out there. We go And runny got verbally abusive and he called Vinnie out for being a scammer. And said how much money did you make off with. While you're bitcoin dropped ninety nine percent and venue he was just trying to you. Know say hey you know you need to pay up. We'll runny basically said you know what I researched free. Ross in it's too controversial reversal for me. And he backed out of paying and he said I will pay the twenty thousand dollars to charities that I've already vetted so I'm GonNa to make good on paying the charity. But I'm not going to give a free Ross so Peter McCormick stepped in our buddy at what bitcoin didn't he said. I'm going to give a thousand dollars to free. Ross to make up for this. Who else is with me so I just actually? I sent a thousand dollars today and were encouraging others out there address that I will post right here in in this chat in just a moment if anybody else wants to help make up for Ronnie shortcomings but I mean it really blew up joy. Think that Ronnie's a con artist. No I don't think he's a con artist. I think that He probably didn't have any business. Getting into crypto analysis as quickly as he did and I think he went in too deep on dig big and believed him too much And I think that he has some serious interpersonal communication nation issues. I think you know I can't know this for sure but I believe that the way he talks and behaves makes me think that he's somewhere on the spectrum. Not that there's anything wrong with that but he's very different in how he communicates and how he experiences the world around them and and I think he's alienated a lot of people. I don't think he's a comment. I I feel sorry for him. Travis was straightforward. You Know Travis. Hey Eat Abaga decks right. That's you know that's what Travis would say and I'm more like you know. Cut The guy a little bit of slack It's this is his problem. He is who he is and of course he blocks everybody..

Is that bitcoin succeeds on the world's failures and at least that's the purpose of what people are looking at and bitcoin right now and I really really really want to emerge everybody to pay attention to this. Pay attention to the style in which bitcoin moves and Wyatt's moving lean that way right a lot of important factors that can make you more successful in this market. I don't want to pretend like I. You know what's happening next. I know that there is going to be probably some stability coming up not just with the election but with Iran right now immediately and and this is as an American right. I kind of what they were McAfee was saying he's just making a joke now at the point is just ruse. I don't I don't believe leave. McAfee was just making only a simple joke and commits. Let me get you on there. Yeah what's up Joe. I don't WanNa talk too much without you Blackburn Blackburn. Doing brother my man happy New Year by the way happy New Year to you too. I just got back from ten days in Colombia and Panama atomised and actually ran into a place in a really rural area called Guadalupe in in Columbia. I gotTA show you the picture here just because you'll You'll appreciate it will meet dig it up here on my phone through the hundreds of pictures that I shot In and I want to make a comment about what you were saying that bitcoin successive bitcoin is dependent on you. Know the failure of the world systems. I think that that's Ju. I don't think that that's completely true. I think that's just one aspect of it right. The the failure of the word system can certainly accelerate the need for the adoption of Bitcoin. But on its own on its face. It's a superior system Period in we don't require failure of other systems in order for Bitcoin. To succeed for the record I didn't say that it was in society that the World Burns for Bitcoin. Success that it does go with the world's problems except the most bitcoin in in Columbia West yet. Burr La Perria La Perea Burger in beef and glut top eight in Tokyo. MTO Kia a Really rural area you know and speaking individuals for the record in honestly if I hadn't hadn't eaten lunch or if they had had dessert I would have bought something. I'm looking at the menu eight and I WANNA I wanNA buy something with Bitcoin in so it didn't happen but I did take a picture. No no that's really cool and I love seeing that as as you know five years would you know that you're not a chance not a chance. And the more people that are holding using and spending inserting their bitcoin right. If you're not selling your bitcoin if you're using it for transacting the more commonplace the more normal in the more more that people don't have to sell the Fiat right. If this is Jubal item now that people value it obvious valuable. It's seven thousand four hundred dollars right the second. You know if you guys didn't hear me before I want to reintroduce Joel Comm you'll Kanchi for joining the impromptu Joe Com- e- host alongside Travis right back up to podcast following them listening to make sure you guys go do you so getting started talk clue about me since especially since I'm a little bit on crispy at the moment go ahead. What are your thoughts on this? Well I saw the tweet today as I was flying back in fact I've been up all night because you have to catch a plane out of Panama three in the morning. Which means you're at the airport at midnight and then the Fort Lauderdale Tale? which by the way is the worst airport? Don't go in all kinds of their busters. There I made it home though and having had sleep but I saw McAfee tweet tweet on route it happened at eight o six am today. Have you read this yet on the air. I did okay but feel free. Feel free to. Yeah I want to read it again just because I haven't read it over the area so okay. Here's McAfee tweet eat my Dick and twelve months a ruse ruse to on board new users. It worked BITCOIN was I. It's an ancient technology all know it. Newer blockchain's have privacy smart contracts distributed tributed APPs and more. Bitcoin is our future was the model t the future of the automobile. There's so much join pack. You're in this but I you know point obviously obviously is that the whole elite my deck. I mean we all know he's not gonNA eat `as deck right. We know that but he would again and again right he reinforced this belief that Bitcoin is GonNa hit a million dollars but the end of twenty twenty in of a dozen. He's going to eat as Dick. Why in the world would would he now with almost a year ago? Put this out there. Why not ride it all the way through and then say just kidding I agree completely agree? You know it really kind of bugs me that he didn't just write it through. Like I both must have got a chance to get to know John over the years. There's an affiliate John's not WanNa really back off something. I don't know if he was so sick and tired of having to hear about it every that also doesn't sound like John or he will. It'll maybe I have made a mistake and I just need to go ahead and right now you know what. What do you think Joe you know? Well I don't know I mean we've interviewed him a few times. I've actually never ever met him. Face to face. Travis has a couple times. They hung out a little bit. But you know we've had him on the show three times and we you know we joked about how he would would prepare. You know the Dick for eating. We thought addict lasagna would be you know probably the the best way to go about it. I'm a I'm a little you know it's hard to say I'm disappointed in John McAfee because first of all he doesn't care and he's probably disappointed so many people that who who am I right. I disappoint people too. I just wish to follow through on all the way in. It seems like this was premature. Admission Shen John Did you just have a premature mission. It'd be the first one to probably say that's exactly what it was now. Janna it says please please tweet. That's clever I like that. It'll tweet I'll let you. I'll let you have that one also to your point is just you know. Let's just say Bitcoin does and I'm not. I'm not put the past. Bitcoin Make Arana forty fifty. Sixty thousand bucks you know. I mean that's I don't WanNA likely likely I don't want to say it's probably going to happen. That's not the case but it's impossible and it's not even impossible. It's not impossible for me to win the lottery. That's not what I mean. I mean it literally has an opportunity to hit that twenty five thirty forty fifty thousand mark and guess what. It doesn't hit a million dollars but fifty thousand dollars in twenty twenty. It's not a bad deal so what I'll take it. You know I mean. No one's going to be mad at John McAfee for making a prediction. That big one was going to go up. John Give it a chance. Surly in two thousand twenty. We might see that twenty five fifty thousand and in that case you can say hey look. It wasn't a million but I'll take fifty how about you. You know we've only had two having 's and I and we've traditionally look back at it and go. Here's what happens when there's a having can't count the first time right the first time you can't cut loss the second time yes it shot up but you know I in so people automatically medically derived from that. Well it's going to have multiple is McAfee. said it's math. I tend to believe that it's it's GonNa hit all time high this year but for a different reason and I wish I could remember who it was that we had on our show but the point was really simple. They said that As the having approaches the media's going to be talking about it more and more it's going to be a big big news item in people people buy at emotion in what's going to happen it's GonNa run and people are going to be an all my gosh. It's back in it. Everybody in their grandma on their dog doug are GONNA be now they're going to be Using some of the more traditional means to buy crypto and they're going to discover you know crypto dot com the Toro and if if they haven't discovered coin base they're going to discover these easier ways to onboard into crypto. And I think that's you know it's going to be a self fulfilling prophecy. We'll get points in your so spot on. Were months away from the. It's not like it's next year. It's literally twenty twenty and this happens in five and a half months less than I mean roundabout. Obviously nobody can predict exactly the day in time of the block but on that block hits. I mean we're GONNA have probably I mean and also this Joel two. We ran up fourteen thousand dollars out blast and when we had that run up a lot of people it wasn't it before that it was It was during bitcoin. Twenty nineteen in San Francisco. That would've been may be so. Forgive me if I ah. We started that run because we had the we had the What's it called the in May or may we also have consensus right we consensus pomp? And I remember we hit like nine K at that point. Yes right after that Right after that in some top area with the summer we hit around fourteen K. And you're probably on the timeframe Graham just a little over a week actually right. We got North America. Bitcoin conference so and look even in Vegas in San Francisco. No in October running up to that because there was a lot of extra attention on it etc and I mean I feel like every single time that we are seeing people. We'll start doubting it is. That's when the whales like turn on the switch or whatever whoever's doing it to everybody starts posting good things positively in the in the media again and I don't know if he's on coin. Telegraph bitcoin. Coming up seventy five hundred feet away from a Boron and we're starting to see these people feel safer and safer because we've held this price and we've held this time period and a really you know mature fashion. I haven't seen a lot of people call manipulation lately. I will say that I've seen a lot of people I'm not selling time I'm holding. I'm just going to ride it out. I don't want to miss it as it goes up the having and that's another case that people have to remember is that you don't WanNa miss the so so if you're selling or shorting you're only foam a moment away for missing that run where it never shows back up at that price again. Ask The people who are selling at seven hundred dollars in you know. Oh in January two thousand seventeen you know I mean I remember people telling me that it was should've gone on the four hundred dollars you'd better sell it because that's where the support range was. I remember vividly and we never got there and we never saw it again anyways. I get excited about this part because I believe that this bull run is not just going to be bitcoin. I think we're GONNA see some all coins benefit. NFL Office to and this is where I start. I get that feeling. Just been in it long. Enough Joel Felt like this before right but you know look cryptos unpredictable. And that's some people who read the charts would say it's not that it's very predictable. I think human emotions predictable but but bitcoin coin there's so much manipulation involved here right that it's really hard to say if you look at what happened with light coin before like coins. Having having last year I love saying that already. We can now say last year for two thousand nineteen It it went from like thirty dollars to about what a hundred and twenty Bob. Quick in then over the next forty five days leading up to the having is when it started coming back down. So how much more important is bitcoin than light. Coin right and so if if the same pattern holds true that we should start seeing the increase happened here. In real short order through North American bitcoin conference through consensus through Bitcoin. Twenty twenty twenty three big three of the four big US conferences. And that's GonNa take you know right into the having absolutely looking as across seventy five hundred dollars. Look what I started this show tonight. We're like seventy three London..
"comm" Discussed on Bitcoin Radio
"What's up bitcoin radio back in Black Blackburn? That is and I'm wearing a black shirt tonight. I hope everybody's doing great the Sunday live cast with your main Manjo Blackburn. Hey folks folks bitcoins holding steady looking good at around seventy two seventy three seventy four hundred ish. My Hope. Everybody's having a wonderful start the new year I know bitcoin is. It's been a a good good start. I mean you know I. I've I've been going back and forth from reading through the twitter tweets with McAfee admission that it was it's all a ruse and that was just for fun. We're GONNA talk about that a little bit tonight. All right so A couple of things we were discussing instability in the world bitcoins the benefit of that. It is very true that instability in the world directly reflects the price of Bitcoin. The day that it was announced that there was anything going on on with a with Iran regardless of political opinion. You know bitcoin reacted a very bullishly stew. That and that's going to continue and guess what there's a lot of bad news for the world coming out and and I really want to kind of focus on a couple of different things in this in tonight's show it's GonNa she's GonNa be made tonight You know bitcoin radio has a lot it of of influence you know coupled with all the parameters and all the people that we can reach and you know it's not just bitcoin. No it's it's a lot of different really good influences people just the the opportunities to touch people's lives is so significant such a responsibility with that right right and so we've always been as many of you note noticed You know we're careful on who we who. who were you know backing supporting as far as projects and you know the price price of coin? Really try to stay away from that point but bitcoin's a little bit different bitcoins one of those where you know you can have that conversation you can talk about. Why it's it's I don't WANNA say safe if to buy because it's very very volatile? It's always gonNA be that way. I only go and pull the price up. Look if you have opinions on McAfee. I want to hear him tonight because I'm about to bring it bring it or about to talk a little bit McAfee and his little joke and I support Backfield S. You know I have some. There's some ways that maybe I I'm not overly bullish. Look big on ready to goes live. We have a little pump. Look Cadad- man. Clearly folks. We were we were. We were witness to McAfee. Finally admitting what most of us have known for a very long time and that you know his his prediction of by the end of twenty twenty bitcoin. Five hundred thousand dollars and then when someone called him on it he was like no actually. I'm going to double down Out and say it's GonNa be worth a million dollars and you know whether it's five hundred thousand million. It doesn't matter you know you don't Price from five hundred thousand dollars per bitcoin. Two million without out you know just you should. You should be able to as a human instinctually know that that moment you know those. Those two predictions happen within a certain timeframe frame of each other. But but you should know for a fact that there is some sarcasm and embellishments in that and he. He made a point today. The call pretty much idiots. He's like you idiots. That thought this you know and I hate that. He used that word but I don't blame him and I think it's really really interesting that that McAfee started off the year now McAfee. He's not a dumb ass. I mean he might be a stupid ass sometimes as far as like some of the things he's done or said or whatever but the guy is truly intelligent and he's bent self marketer. Okay you know I compare the likes of his style of marketing into similar to how Donald Trump markets himself at twitter. There's a lot of similarities in that now not comparing the two individuals. I don't WanNa get into that. I am saying though that McAfee. He knows what he's doing how he markets himself. I've had conversation here on the radio. And as McAfee went into you know his prediction prediction doubled up on it and shortly afterwards Mac made it a point to to stay on on this topic. Got Him a tremendous mendes. Amount tension both in Crypto and outside crypto and on a daily basis. There was nobody more relevant to a conversation when it came to Bitcoin in general then McAfee you the audience you that you know. It's re- tweeter you. The twitter commoner made have beyond me. Ms When it came to us and if you look at it and if you pretend to say that's not what he was trying to do or if you say that and you mean it you're not paying attention to how how McAfee gets his point across now. I say that I'm GonNa move into this topic. Him saying that in him bringing attention to it whether the embellishment men of what he thought of as has he called it was A good way to do it as far as for bitcoin purposes. That's up for debate. I don't I I don't really I don't have the answer for that. I'd rather not bitcoin be seen as something that you're GonNa take a lottery chance on off from coming in. I don't think that does anybody any favors. When you think about you know well bitcoin because McAfee said it let me hop in and then it stands store goes down you know months at a time? How does it bring ability to Bitcoin? And I don't agree with that. Our that influence of what Bitcoin is capable of doing and being because I firmly believe that bitcoin and as you say it's mathematics. I firmly believe that he's correct saying that it e- can be that in some capacity. Keep keep going bitcoin and look. I'm watching what you guys are also watching it with me. So many four hundred you know. I don't. I don't want to pretend that I hate what McAfee did I. Don't in fact. I think it was brilliant. I wish I would have thought about it. I right but was it or is it the healthiest maybe not right. I don't disagree that you talked with people saying that. That's not quite ready to be representing what Bitcoin can be what it will be now. That is not the only thing though that has happened in. This context a lot of people who made aware of it good or bad and a lot of people people are paying into it and they did it because of the dictating now. Look I think this is hilarious. You know someone goes makes a website about the dictating actually surprise that McAfee. I didn't let it keep going real. I mean why. Why stop now clearly as the year would go through? There is certain certain point where it'd be obvious that it wasn't going to be a million dollars or five hundred thousand dollars for that matter and unless crazy happens like the world econo- lapses which at that that point you know Mac fees. I was joking not joking. The the the idea that that bitcoin reacts positively eight to World News is not new like this is something that we all finestone stability. And it's like the backup plan right and Dan Imagine in first and foremost before this comment. I do not want the world to burn down in flames. I don't or nor am I routing for bad things to happen to countries people hints you know individuals groups. I'm not looking forward to this. Not Pretending like this is what I'm looking or two okay but I will acknowledge the fact that add the world begins to burn. bitcoin is going to increase substantially intially. Because it is the only backup plan for wealth ever created besides already existed on this earth meaning land precious metals else and similar ads that belonged to the earth before humans guy here. Okay now when we recognize that bitcoins were playing this identity of money in the wealth sector. As as you know bad starting to happen I mean firm belief that the world world economy is a very very pivotal point. And I'm not the only one who believes that the stock market for example in the United States is up at at the highest. It's it's ever and it continues to break records a lot of investor convents. There's a lot of things going on right now that you know really positive people who invested in the united the United States stock market. It's not unique. There's there's other stock markets to that have done really well over time. I mean heck Venezuela's I think doing credibly good from its all-time low Ah I think it had a nice little rebound recently. But that's not to say that these things will continue right the. US economy is the how recession historically became. He can always will happen. Next year is going to happen next decade. When I don't know I can't answer that? There's a lot of people with a lot of opinions are way smarter than me and they all seem to disagree. We got gold in. This is one of the biggest biggest influence in jail. You're kind of steel my thunder but I can appreciate what you you know. Goals at fifteen hundred dollars right now when you start seeing gold gain momentum like that. That's a really good sign. That economies are starting to struggle that people are starting to get more skeptical of what the economies are going to do. What's up D doesn't match slide? Enough all deums. uh-huh doesn't mentioned comedy if those who are wondering I stand here firmly stating that whether it'd it'd be nice to me whether it be China you know China is Is One of those economies that has been edited off of a recent surge over the last couple of decades of you've not just relevance but dominance of some of their sector in the manpower and the out of control they have over there. They've been able to really really take advantage. Vantage of a of a really just a a an op at opportunistic land. A lot of people of land lots of places that do business in China. I don't agree with their politics Over their mobile the politics should I say but they've been able to capitalize and capture a big porsche market over there in the other one Oh well underway. I think India will. We'll replicate some if they can get their politics together. Some of the that that China has keep the change of filthy animal. So you know I'm sitting here. You're watching the world right now watching the instability watching gold silver watching land prices. You know in times of Economic Nommik at least you know losing confidence in economic you know. Success investor will take gain. And they'll put them into hard assets and as you see this surge to go and spend money that they've earned markets whether it'd be a big market the stock market where whatever might be and. I'm really trying to simplify this. Just keep that in mind folks..

The common sense approach to Social Business Strategy Marketing Technologies Customer Experience is an emerging technologies which was published in January twenty seventeen and these two gentlemen are the hosts of the podcast for the CRYPTO. Curious serious and Crypto Serious Ladies and gentlemen join them often at the bad crypto. PODCAST DOT COM now. Joel Travis. Philipson had little tidbits. Not Your Life. We're going to offer Crypto Chore. Rose I think trump's in the future Rose the show for the CRYPTO curious ooh Mexican code in the Bio that you read very well. I might add a little. Bit Like William Shatner. Even you know Kinda gives you overview review. I've been playing with different technologies ever since I learned that technology was the thing had my first computer when I was sixteen years old. In one thousand nine hundred eighty and was dialing into into the online world B. S.'s at three hundred Baud per second and so I've been dialing into the online world now for going on forty the years which makes me really really old and I've earned my gray hairs. I enjoy playing a lot of different sandboxes and checking out the cool tech and when something gets my attention I play with that technology longer in invariably I ended up doing something with it and people ask me. How did you do that? And so I've really come into a position position of teaching people about building websites making money online and creating successful apps and all this kind of stuff and now you know oh since Travis and I started this show back in the summer of two thousand seventeen a crypto. Bitcoin blockchain has been my latest obsession. And let me ask few. What's on the wall behind you? There those would be pictures. And what is that the fun. What's that book? That is the printing a cover of my fifteenth book which is called the fun formula. And that's why it's a fun cover. You know. It's got a lot of colors on it and in what I did is reverse engineered my career as an entrepreneur and I recognized from my own experience that the whole hustle and grind. The thing is a lie. I just I really despise this notion that if you WanNa succeed in life you gotta get up before everybody else. Stay later than everyone else. While your friends are enjoying a game over the weekend or out on the boat you're working because you're hustling and your grind. What I discovered is that type of mentality L.? The actually was harmful to me. My greatest successes in my career have always come with beliefs amount of effort. It's all about relationships. It's all about following your passion and taking risks in having that right email at the right time or showing up for that event even though you're not sure why you're are there. I believe that life has a way of working out when we're most true to ourselves and authentic in the fun formula is the antidote to the hustle and grind. I wanted it to be liberating for people to realize they can have success without sacrificing their health and their relationships not only is this a pathway to more successful business career but also to a more fulfilled life amen while for the listeners out there a a lot of my friends and listeners who are out there they they are in this grind and they think that success comes from grind in and out out and what I always say is go for what you enjoy and you know. I've learned that lesson over the years. I think there's there's one person that it works out for Andrew and that's Gary Vander Chuck. I wouldn't I think he's living his fun formula. You know how it works out in the long run remains to be seen I hope. OPEC is able to purchase. The New York jets. One day like like he's wanted to but the problem is a lot of people wanna be him and that's you know you shouldn't try to be anybody else you need to figure throughout your all about where you have the greatest passion and where you can bring the most value and I think that's that equation. Right there is going to be where you find the greatest success and always as we age we realize I was just talking to a friend yesterday and he said he was out with a friend of his and the night before they were just having dinner. We're having a good time. And the next morning the guy died he had had a heart attack in the middle of the night and it just a great reminder that if you're not having fun in Your Life my God go out and start today now. ADM and boy. That's a happy note right there. So Travis Hankins the moon tell us about you and somebody died. Travis turn yeah. My cat died over the weekend. And then there's a car wreck just happened. This is the great. This is very positive. podcast you got over here. It's the worst the worst podcast. Oh that's the worst. I investment the worst investment podcasts. Once I go by the philosophy of you know it's not necessarily the hustle and grind but I love stacking king skills. I love learning new things and so throughout my whole career is all ben about learning these new things learning new strategies. The Internet came along and I I saw. Aw really early and I was like okay. This is really interesting. Look at this so I figured out search engine results before Google was a thing. I was manipulating website. So they would pop upon excite and Lycos Alta Vista. You know playing around before Google was a thing right overture the paid search and mobile. You know social media did my first ad campaign on friendster right in social media so I just played around testing stuff out so kind of like Joel in the way where I see the things before most people do is when I start playing around and testing and and seeing where things are going in and now you know as a result of Writing Digital Sansa talking about these emerging technologies. Oh Jeez that's kind of what led us to blockchain right because to me it was like wow blockchain is sort of reinventing finance. It's GonNa Change Money when you're talking about money and once you realize is that Fiat currency is a thing that means they can print money out of thin air. Once I realized that in the year twenty one year twenty actually two thousand. I know I think it was July of one thousand. Nine hundred nine is when I realized that that currency that can just print it out it was not backed by gold. And there's nothing behind hind other than they can just print and it's backed by the full faith of US government military. And whatever. And I was like what they can just print out one hundred dollar bill for six months and how are we. Are we in debt. How does this work? This doesn't make sense to me and I will tell you that has been a source of many bad investments for me because with me not having having faith in the dollar. I've not had faith in the stock market right because I'm like. Oh this is just a house of cards. It's GONNA crash eventually. It's a big bubble right and I've seen multiple bubbles that's pop so so far and so I've kind of always stayed out on the stock market and then when blockchain came around and I started understanding what it means in Wi. bitcoin is is a mathematical equation. Sort of eliminates governmental manipulation of dollars. And as well I was like wow this is great. This is the first time maybe in history that we could maybe take power away from the state and give it back to the people and so I've missed out on a lot of investments when it comes to the stock market but I have bought lots of gold and silver but during the time that I was doing that I should have bought bitcoin right just because the price of gold and silver was up really high and then I bought it in down. But that's not my worst investment will get to that as we go along here but this is that is really the core of what Kinda brought Joel together to do. The bad crypto podcast is Fiat ought currency is a term that most people don't even know they've never even heard that turn and so when you realize what it means you start going wait a second and so our economy is kind of a paper tiger and wait wait a second so you know. That's one of the things that sort of led me down the path and that's where we are today. Well when you learn about Fiat currency you understand the importance of why the US military continues to be so strong because ultimately there's GonNa come a time where they're going to have to to fight to defend something that there's not a lot backing unfortunately so it is the world reserve currency and what that means for folks who don't know is most those countries have to buy dollars before they can buy oil to import right and so that's why I now historically over time. A reserve currency has lasted lasted anywhere between eighty to one hundred and twenty years before us. It was the English pound before that was like the Spanish. You know reality before. That was the Portuguese something before that. It was the Danish something over the last like five hundred years. There's been about five reserve currencies and the dollar is running near the end of its life cycle Michael in so for some. That's very scary. And for those who understand it and realized there's opportunity with that should bring back danishes currency again. Though 'cause I I I like the chocolate ones Greenfield ones are much better than those. Those are very valuable Danish me baby Danish. Well it's a topic that we could go on in an about and I am the last thing I would say. It's at one of the things that's happened with. The currency is that by the US using the power of its control of the world currency in the world you know the reserve currency of the world. They've used that power really aggressively over the last decade to shutout companies and individuals individuals and countries from the US dollar trade and the more that they use that against countries and individuals and companies the more they're pushing countries like China and Russia into the need to create a new currency block. And I've watched that from over here in Asia happening and that pressure is pretty extreme and I would argue that it's being used to an extreme by the US and the result is is that eventually the the solutions for countries that don't WanNa follow necessarily the US government's policies is that they've got to come up with alternative means of trading trading. And so the idea of for instance the US dollar not being required to buy oil in the future or other means of trading seeing are in the process and of course the crypto world is a perfect place for development of that so my goodness we could go on and I really highly recommend the listeners. Get onto the podcast. Because bad crypto podcast is definitely talking about all of this stuff in in a fun way and they were set up. We set up a playlist just for the basics and for the beginners for people who don't really know anything where to start and we created a short url which spells bad coined NBA D. C. Dot I. N. which is the URL forward slash basics. And if you take that link right there that Joel just posted on it now gives you ten episodes also really lay the foundation of what it is. It's going up and then you'll be addicted. Orientate us one or the other. I'm not sure which awesome bad code dot I N. slash basics and..
"comm" Discussed on Beyond the To Do List
"It's a testament to you over time through experimentation success and failure toning that muscle that you need to have to hold that antenna up so that when things come through your your available for the opportunity to take the right opportunity when it arises. So I'll I'll I support this message. I mean that's I mean and and I think I've heard you say something along these lines that you know ultimately similarly for you. It's this perspective of enjoying the process of experimentation. So that if you know you experience since If if something that you're making creating doing becomes a quote failure you still experience success because you fulfilled and completed completed the experiment and you enjoy the process. Exactly I don't look back at the things I've done and go like I did This year I've done a couple of things that I've it's not done before. One of them was a late night. Talk Show using facebook live but audio only which I might mess with again But I haven't done it for a couple of months and another thing was Got Inspired by somebody that was doing daily videos and I thought Oh. I'm going to start doing daily videos. I WANNA do a months daily videos and go from there in our friend Damian. Ross then you know the did the road to three hundred and I thought oh I just wanted to daily videos. Well I did thirty five days in that I stopped I was done. It's Kinda like forrest gump Iran and then one day a stop running and that's it and I don't look at it and go. Oh Man I wish I was still doing daily videos. No because if I wish I were I would be but but I'm not because I was done. I did what I wanted to do. I tried it and I'm done with it and so that's a lot now my life is you know I'm done. I'm done teaching social media as we know it. I'm not going to be another twitter powerbook. I'm not gonNA write a book about facebook about linked in. I'm talking about the new. Social sites at most of the world are unaware of that are blockchain. Ain't base that there's GonNa be a huge disruptor that's gonNA come. I want to look forward. I'm not talking about live video that much I was there in the beginning I taught live video. became a leader in live video. became a brand influence. Her for the dot live Brandon for and I'm still a brand influencer for for be dot live because I love what they're doing but I am not seeking opportunities to teach live video anymore. I'm leaving that to others to do because I'm excited about what's next. I Bright Shiny Object Syndrome but again there you go like you can. You can sort of justify some of the looking at the bright shiny objects because hey why not you free up the time and you never know which next thing might be the which thing. That's passing by might be the next thing. Well I've I have a better reason for it. It's the reason for my success looking being attracted to what is that is. What's led me to try all these different things and it's it's it is the basis for for my success and so people talk about Bright Shiny Shiny Object Syndrome? As though it's it's a bad thing not if you don't get attached to one thing there's so much opportunity out there. People are like the singularly focused and that door. That's before you that shut you. Just Keep Bang Bang Bang and on that door until You know it opens and I'm going. That is ridiculous. I see open doors all around me. Why would I say this is the one thing that I have to do? The world is a sandbox. I mean I envisioned myself as a kid with a pail and a shovel looking for Sam box to play and I go. Oh that would be fun and I start building now. That was not this one. There's water flooding too much trouble Look I built a little something. Okay got washed away. Check out the castle I made made in this one. This is cool. I want to build more right here. It's that simple and you know having. I don't know if it's a luxury to be able to do that. Or if doing that led to the reason that I can do more of that. But maybe that's the risk taking part rid of it is that you have to be willing to build castles. That might get washed away with the tides In fact everything gets washed away. Eventually I mean if there's one thing I've learned in almost twenty five years of doing business on the internet said nothing is forever even Apple Computer. Peter being on top is not going to be forever. facebook being on top is not going to be forever. I think that ultimately it comes down to again. This is a productivity activity. Show but this is a this is a more holistic view of You know productivity this is the macro level. Why are you doing this? What are you doing and why are you doing it because then once you kind of have those you know in your had at least for the current phase of your life you can then say okay? Well now I'm going to focus and again in my definition of the word hustle. I can say okay like I know that my family's important to me and I'm not GonNa do something. I'm not going to risk something so far out there that it's going to jeopardize them but like what's my sandcastle build in then and that I'm allowed to take risks in in other words and move forward health healthy unhealthy risks healthy risks right. Yeah don't be stupid right. There's nothing in the fun. Formula says. Be An idiot But but it's okay to be a little foolish and by that I mean if conventional wisdom says what you should do this you know that's too risky or that's that's too often mainstream. Nobody's ever done that before you know what as long as it's not illegal and you're not hurting anybody if you have a dream to do something in a way that nobody's done it before it that'll probably scare you and I tell people that thing that scares you that set set you apart from what everybody else is doing in your niche. That's probably the thing you need to do right. There's a there's a new health and fitness regimen. Jim In you know seems like every month and there's a new diet well. A lot of them are very similar but they have a unique selling selling proposition that sets them apart. All I need to have grapefruit all the time I got it. And that's the title of the Diet because they found that one one saying that for them made a big difference and we all are looking for what. What's the what's the thing that's going to move the needle so if if you're an arena Teaching something and you're like you know I have an idea but nobody else is saying this. Well that'll be scary because you're going to have to take a risk to say say that thing that nobody else say it's probably the thing you need to say ultimately what we're trying to get people to do is have a perspective change on the way that they go about their relationship with work in their life. You know I'm not gonNA say oh. This is the ultimate guide to work life balance. I mean but this plays a part in it your perspective on it plays a part in it. It's obviously why you enjoy doing so much of what it is. You do in fact most of what it is. You do right So if I don't enjoy it Then I don't do it and what's led to is more success personally more more peace more freedom and there's nothing wrong with with any of that now I'm not saying there's you know I don't look my email box ago I got to answer these emails that self-imposed that's a choice. Right this is these are the consequences of the choices that we make so. It's not that I'm totally totally enamored with every moment of my day and everything that I do but in general I like what I do. I think that's it's a great place to tie it up and say look people You GotTa get the book if you really need to. You need a refresh. I think a lot of people do when it comes to Their their perspective on work and and their life and they're fun for that matter and so I'll link up to the the book in the show notes and we can link up to two bad crypto. Oh podcast as well. Because you've got a bunch of people in you know podcast.

"You can learn about your metabolism and then receive personalized advice from a metabolic expert to get you started and start moving forward into the new year to become a new you again. That's met pro dot co slash beyond back when we were talking about We were using Baseball metaphors force. You had a seventh inning stretch. Where you kind of took a semi sabbatical talk to me about that? That's good I like that seventh inning. Stretch the only thing I don't like about that as it would indicate that the games almost over. Can we call the half time and said Yeah. Let's switch sports and say halftime like that better convincing take you out to the ball game. That's I'm getting ready to pack it in half times. Good yes especially when you're mid life Yeah it was two thousand ten I had made had some bad hires. I had one guy that was as Ling from me actually had to pursue charges against him which was which made me sad and angry had another another guy that I thought had my back that I hired a run my company. That really didn't in almost destroyed my company. I'm one of those fortunate souls that you know you hear era. The story of I had everything and then it went bankrupt. I've never had the bankrupt thing so I was always Had the presence of mind to to slow the downhill slide at the right before it was too late And all of that and some other issues contributed to my marriage falling apart you know separation and ultimately divorced and I needed to step away from everything everything and I did and I slowly pared back my staff And I quit writing. I quit speaking. Wasn't developing new products and there was a two year period which I just Kinda worked on myself. Physically emotionally and spiritually. It was the focus of my life to figure out all right. When did I go wrong? How do I fix this stuff and that to me was the most important thing I could do? It was transformational national and I did a couple of interesting things. During that time I decided to go in dry for over in a really just for a week to document the experience and I went and got a job. Towards the end of the Sabbatical I worked for. I don't know six to eight months as a cashier at Barnes and noble for not for the minimum wage. I was getting paid but to shake the paradigm of you know of my life and give me fresh perspective and do something different and it did. It was incredibly enlightening enlightening and when it was time for me to resurface and be in the public eye again I did but you know I took a risk to do that. I think a lot of people are scared especially in this daily Status Update World of social media that. If we're not out there in the public eye that people are going to forget about us. Well that was a risk that I took night into completely disappear from social media but there wasn't like wasn't building any business my list got old and there wasn't growing anything other than myself in the irony is. I was shrinking because I was losing weight but the irony was was is. I needed to take that break that it was actually more beneficial to my professional life disappearing from from being in the public. A lot of people are afraid that if they're not present all the time than they're forgotten what I discovered when I came back is that cement had hearted. I didn't realize this would happen. I thought out of people are GonNa Forget about me and what I do and when I come back out it's going to have to be rebuilding again. It was on the contrary when I came back. People are like. Oh how we miss you and whatever people had thought of me before by disappearing for a couple of years and not doing those things that people had known me for. It's it's like my reputation. My credibility had cemented. It got stronger so I guess strew what they say. Absence makes the heart grow founder. So if you need a break don't be afraid to take a break and I think that if you're you know self actualising realizing and working on yourself Then you'll come back stronger and people will be glad to see you and you'll probably be able to provide greater value as a result for the people out there who again they know well Joel made a whole bunch of money so he can then be free to do whatever he wants. But I can't do that. Ask What do you say to that. I've not always had money and I'm not wealthy just in case there's perceptions out there. That Joel comes a multimillionaire. I'm not brought in case you missed it. My business fell apart and I got divorced. Okay do some math here. And you're going to discover that add. I am not swimming in in wealth a one time I had a lot now and then find with that though the pursuit of money I I have enough. What's enough enough to live the lifestyle that I want to live and guess what? It doesn't take a lot to do that. If you're not pursuing the expensive things of this world I've talk to people and At one point there was a a musician out there who just was like you know what I'm GonNa put a course out there about how to be a blue collar music musician you don't need to superstardom person to do the thing that you enjoy music and get paid to do it enough to live your life like and you know blue collar. May they have positive or negative connotations. Whatever but it's just a person who goes in and goes out and does their job and enjoys it? You know and I so. I'd almost say that you're right now. Like a blue blue-collar podcast author and keynote speaker. Maybe maybe I'm I'm collarless. I wear t shirts so you know I don't i. Don't no no I when I think of blue collar I think of the salt of the earth. The people that are you know you're driving the trucks and you're climbing electric poles and you know you're so you're you're in the trenches like you. The blue collar workers of the world make the world work so that the white collar world can do their business and I think that they're more essential they're more central to the The establishment and the growth in the backbone of of this country You know if it was up to the white collar world we wouldn't have roads and bridges will it and even I know that that You you know even coming out of the Sabbatical and moving forward and you have gone through phase after phase after phase of working through something and and it works or it doesn't and then working through something and then it works where it doesn't and that even kind of reared its head again when writing the book it did and and it always thrills me when. Somebody's actually read my material right to be able to ask questions. I mean so many times we interview people and we have a copy of the book at are hand but you know we just we go from the talking points. So thank you for that Yeah it was really. It's really interesting. Eric how wife life teaches us. What we're trying to teach others right I think because that's what gives it more credibility in and while I'm writing the fun formula which I I received my biggest advance for its fifteenth book ended as the Book that is closest to my heart? It is more pure. What Joel wants the people to know than anything else? Because you know I've written about twitter written about Google and so many other subjects that are more strategic or tactical in this is really. This is a heart book. This is a life book that applies to Your Business. And I'm telling people to be curious I'm telling people to take risks and most telling them that you have to trust the process. You have to wait for the right time. You can't force things in here. I am writing this book and I'm having an existential crisis submit my own because I'm talking about all the things I've done in my past in a written New York Times bestseller sold the site Ti. who had a number one iphone APP? Create Ella Internet reality show but for all these different things and I'm realizing that even though I'm writing this book I don't have a next thing for me personally. I don't have something that I'm passionate about that I'm excited about and I began to ask myself a horrible question. Russian and I think a lot of people can relate to this question and that question was what if I'm just GonNa Coast on my past successes. I wonder if my greatest work is behind me. Oh man that one for somebody who's used to creating creating and producing and doing another big impactful thing. That's a hard one to swallow like is. This is his this yes it is this as good as it gets and trying to think of what I can do trying to force it trying to come up with ideas and a lot of people have been in that place. What can I do to make money online or to get more? Whatever it is I want and Dan I remembered? I'm writing this book. Trust the process that in the past things have happened at the right time in usually not in the way that you saw them happening well again. I'm in the midst of Editing this manuscript and I'm struggling with what I'm teaching shing people and I'm telling myself Joel. Trust the process. You have to wait in you'll know and that's exactly what I did head well around spring of two thousand seventeen. I had this sudden fascination with bitcoin. I had heard of it before but I didn't understand it in a conversation that I had with a friend of mine at a conference just It was time I was like I really want to understand this and I started going. Down the CRYPTO currency rabbit hole I became fascinated with it in narrowed with it. I thought Oh my gosh. This is going to transform the society in our world in every vertical. More than mobile has more than the web has by the way. That's the the foundations. Foundations are shifting right. Now it's happening in. It's going to happen. And this is the futurist in me coming up and I began taking my My conversations about up this to my friend Travis right who also was going down the cryptocurrency rabbit hole and we would talk every day on Messenger about our thoughts thoughts in July sixteenth. Two thousand seventeen. That Travis sent me a facebook message. That said sarcastically. When are we going to start? The Joel and Travis Crypto show and he was joking because we were having conversations all the time in the moment he said. I said I'm calling you right now. Two days later we launched a podcast called the bad crypto. PODCAST which invited people to go. Down the CRYPTO rabbit hole with us in do it with a sense of humour are the show exploded we got. It was the fastest growing thing that I ever experienced in broadcasting here. We are two and and a half years later and were being invited to conferences to speak to put on our show on stage. And we done four hundred shows. We've had over over eight million downloads and it all happens while I was sleeping. Essentially I wasn't looking for something and so it just and and I was able to add this story to the final. Edit of the book was the last thing I put in before it was released because it was a perfect example of how we we have to go through what were teaching in order for it to be valid man. And I you know all Kudos to you You so you talked to me about the facebook.
"comm" Discussed on Beyond the To Do List
"Hello Welcome back to another episode of beyond the to do list. I I'm your host Eric Fisher and this is the show where I talked to the people behind the productivity this week. I'm excited to share with you a conversation. I had with my friend Joel Comm in this chat with Joel. We talk about his book. The Fun formula. How curiosity risk taking and searing deputy can revolutionize how you work so as you can guess we're talking talking about changing your perspective on your work and honing in on what's important working smarter not harder but not at the exclusion of working king harder occasionally and knowing when the time comes to do that hard work and pushed through but not neglecting the fun that you can have in your work as you go? I I always have fun talking with Joel so I know you're going to enjoy this conversation with Joel Comm well this week. It is my privilege to welcome to the show. Joel Comm Joel. Welcome to beyond the to do list. Let's go beyond man I want like. I don't even do a to do list. I have a mental mental checklist of what I need to do today and honestly this is the only thing I need to do. Today is hang out with you and see you had this on a calendar because because I scheduled it with you and then it automated like populated your your calendar and you didn't have to put their it got put there for you. Yup and I appreciate that because if it's not on my calendar then that means I'm free to do whatever else I want to do. Well and you do so many different things like. I don't even know what to call you at this point. Wait you're you're an author podcast or An Internet business starter. An entrepreneur and more Far APP Generator Raider. Just calling me. Joel Joel that's that's Yeah I will call you Joel. And but but that's my point is like you've had this like since I've known you or known of you and then known you you've had and even when I first got to got got wind there's a Fart joke for you. Even when I first got wind of who you were I was like. Oh this guy's interesting then I got to know you and I was like this is really interesting and I got some of your back story and so you're just really I mean I. I want to say the words ran. Yeah well rounded. But I don't I don't think that's even like you just have an ethos to you. You have a hardworking ethos. But you're also like I wanNA have fun too. I want to enjoy what I'm doing and you've learned a lot outta lessons in terms of how to make work work for you over time and so i WanNa talk about some of that. Nobody really really needs well. Some people do but I don't think a lot of people out there really need to hear someone yet. Another person come along and say you know you've gotTa follow your passion and be creative waited and like all that kind of stuff and yet here right. Let me remove that from the list of things that was going to say well well. Here's here's what I want to say. Is I want you to say that to us to the people who've heard it too many times before and think that that's a hard thing to do. I think you're you're doing it so that's kind of the gap I WANNA bridge. Well here's the thing you know. It's it's easy to say. I base what I teach on. What I've done done always have I? It gets in my crawl when somebody learns about something from somebody else and then they teach it without actually actually having had the experience of cells. Now I'm not talking about being a history teacher okay. You're not you know we're making history. I'm talking about in business snus you know. I didn't write a book about Google ads since until I was making five hundred thousand dollars a day with glad sets. I didn't teach about how to make a mobile APP until until I succeeded by having a number one mobile APP in the list goes on you know so when I reverse engineer my successes and my failures I discovered that the hustle and grind mentality actually really dangerous and when I was following that advice advice and that approach to life I actually only had at best moderate success and oftentimes epic failure in often often at the cost of my health and my relationships and so I- evaluated the Times that I had the successes and I've got what I would call seven home runs in my career in. Then you know a bunch of base hits and a huge number of strikeouts and walks. There's all the baseball metaphor that you need a couple of errors first few months but really seven home runs in each one of these home runs. They came with the least amount of effort and so I tried to figure out what is it that made those home runs successful. How did I do that when I I wasn't putting in the massive effort and it all came down to following my own fun? It's my fun formula the title of my book the Fun Formula How what curiosity risk-taking and Sarah Deputy can revolutionize how you work in so it wasn't say I'm GonNa have fun with my life and I'm going to succeed need. It was. Oh this is how I've succeeded and I think there is a mindset in a lifestyle approach to work that is very authentic to who you are that is about being curious and being creative and taking risks be willing to fail and trusting the process assess. That really does open the doors to more what you want in business and life and there's a whole mouthful for you there. Yeah that's great and and again that him bodies right there basically all you just said is kind of this ethos that you have this approach to life and business or the business of life or the life of business this. I don't know I don't know you know whatever but ultimately it's this idea that Fun is not something that we do that. It's a way of life and that you've learned to re like you said reverse engineer the successes that you have had and then you can kind of say well have have you look back at the other. That the strikeouts or the I almost went. Oh yeah I almost went into football metaphors metaphors there for a second. Okay supply talking looking business metaphors. Yes but have you thought about that. I mean I I assume maybe you did. But you basically of the success you've had reverse engineering them and then look back in hindsight though maybe not for too long at some of the failures and say now I can see why that didn't work. I like to look long and hard at the failures that does not bother me at all in fact when I speak I speak about the failures because failure is the greatest teacher right. If the goal is the home homerun you gotta analyze why you struck out in that's why I say the Hustle and grind is is not the key you know. There's I've had epic failures years You know some of them costing a little some of them costing.
Anne Ortelee's November 10, 2019 Weekly Weather
"Welcome to or at least weekly weather. My name is an early. It's a little bit of lake broadcast tonight because it's been a very busy weekend here in the beautiful city of New York We have a lot going on in the sky. We have lot going on in our lives. It's kind of part of the deal right now with everything kinda running a little wild up there One of the things to kind of look at is kind of the news. You're GONNA get that. Might be a little surprising shocking. Or Wow. I didn't know that was going to happen Mercury is Kazimi Azimi the son and of course mercury is going retrograde now. Kazimi is an interesting placement because it doesn't It it's when the sun is is so close to mercury mercury so close to the sun that you It's like when you put your finger in a candle and it doesn't get burned versus when you hold it over the flame top and it gets burned so mercury Kazimi has that quality it's incredibly bedded in the heart of the Sun. That's going to happen tomorrow. But we're in orbit now so mercury is GonNa pass is also at the same declaration as the sun so we're going to have kind of a cool thing tomorrow well In Watch your NASA you know if you're on the Internet looking at NASA stuff you'll see that it's there's very intense energy. And you'll see mercury mercury kind of passing across the face of the sun for a period of about five hours tomorrow Obviously you're not supposed to look at the sun so look at pictures from NASA so but it's the energy of the planet and so the Sun and Mercury at the same declamation. This doesn't happen that often and somebody pointed out. I was doing weekend workshop this weekend. Somebody pointed out is eleven eleven so it's eleven eleven portal which is of course the big Portal for master master numbers and it also is Because of the Kazimi Energy it's very very intense so our job with his intensity as we're running through we're gonna hear really interesting news. Correct make really interesting commitments. It's a great day to commit to things Part of the issue with it though is because mercury is retrograde in Scorpio. Oh you WanNa make sure you commit to positive you know. WanNa say gee my life shitty you know. I have a horrible life. Oh it's terrible you want to kind of go okay. Let's let's do the positive vision. Let's do where we're sending the energy what we're creating is we're heading out make it be It may be a positive energy. You're sending off into the heavens as we work with this energy tomorrow and of course Mercury Comm combust. The Sun is very intense very passionate but it's also so tight it's accelerated and it's amplified and it's augmented so it's super duper super duper mercury son conjunction of course. It is retrograde in Scorpio. So so we're GONNA look back at things and maybe have realizations or a moment so in my life. It's been kind of a busy Busy Week but this weekend particularly I had scheduled the east our certification so we had twenty one lovely people show up and Richard SMOOT and and Vicki his wife Vicky smooth pelt smoke and I conducted the The COP consulting skills for two and a half days twenty hours and had a wonderful group of astrologers hanging out and talking and learning and doing their listening skills and their can't start reading skills. It was a really cool weekend. It was a great deal of fun and then on on Saturday night. Two of my favorite Client slash students slash. I Dunno they become like you know. I feel like they're family on some level both Got Married And they one of them well they actually got married about a month apart. They were like besties and they went to law school together. And so Theresa eloped with her beloved Stephen to the top of a mountain in Sedona Vortex and got married on vortex with a minister and a photographer and Jodi met her beloved Thomas or Tad as he is known to his family and they had a really beautiful wedding at this really gorgeous just cathedral here in New York. Saint Ignatius Loyola and then reception at the Harvard Club. That was probably one of the best bands I've ever danced it at a wedding leading and it was an Italian wedding. And so you know with the Italian weddings you get up and you dance between the courses and then you sit down and I met Jodi and Theresa test is is she's called when they were They were starting to study astrology. They'd come for reading and then started being interested in it and And off we went so now here we are quite a number of years later and they both got married within a month of each other. So it's Kinda cool So that I had a great time I'm at the wedding and then you know we did this consulting skills for twenty hours so I just got to know a bunch of wonderful. twenty-one new wonderful astrologers some of them I knew of course but a lot of ones in from out of town and then I came home tonight after dinner in kind of debriefing with Vicky and Richard because we talked about stuff to who had gotten an e mail or voice message from my neighbor and my neighbor down the hall died And she was coming home Saturday night and she just dropped dead it on the street on First Avenue and that's it So you don't know how you don't know what's going to happen. It's like you know the the intensity of this processing for twenty hours with twenty one people you know. emoting and learning and working on their empathy and the reflection. And they're paraphrasing or freezing and they're they're listening skills and then this party down. You know Dan everybody dance now and then my neighbor dropping dead who. I've lived next door to over forty years Kind of a wild one you know so mercury Kazimi expect really. Intense action has a very intense right. Now just look at the politics you know whenever anybody goes. Why don't you talk about politics? I'm like because that is the outer manifestation Asian of what the world is we've had all these people get caught mark. Gastineau just came out announcing he had been raped as a kid From eleven to fourteen. You know he's like one of the bigger football guys in the world You guys younger may not no one. But he's the one that started making the dancing in the end zone. He's the one that did that. And they used to think it was bad sportsmanship. But that little gay touchdown thing that we take for granted now he did it and it was considered bad form And we've had a lot of revelations about you know murders coming people catching murderers whereas mercury conjuncture son in Scorpio. A lot of dead people talking or secrets are being revealed. You know there's been a lot of found the body you know figured it out finally arrested the person who did it. News and the email l. and that's where that's coming from you know with mercury retrograde in Scorpio on the sun there's a breakthrough in cold cases. And I remember a while back I was talking talking to a cop in Nebraska. And he said You know I've noticed and he kind of basically you know told me it was Saturn. He noticed the Saturn and he knew when one of the cold cases unsolved that all the others would solve to write and Saturday employer were wrapping up the last thirty six years. So they're trying to get the stuff out the door and off the books and and process it and get it out there so people can move onto the next chapter so it's a really intense week ahead so I don't want to minimize how intense. It's going to be but also we're going to have a full moon In tourists and Scorpio. And that's a very fits very fertile moon and that's GonNa take place on choose day and of course when we have a full moon one of the things that we're we're working with is the energy of abundance in how it kind of Heads across the sky so the full moon is On Tuesday at eight thirty four in the morning and the sun is that Nineteen Scorpio and moon is at Nineteen Scorpio so this hearkens back to The energy of if The tourist time which is around a May twelfth of two thousand eighteen and then two around August twelfth of last of this year twenty nineteen when it was an Aquarius and now we have the full moon and we really see the full moon energy of this enter this energy kind of moving forward so it's a big. It's a big one. We also have on this full moon Venus approaching a square to Neptune. So it's kind of unexpected things happening or taking place and then we also have Jupiter and series meeting near to the south node but also in the first house kind of revealing stuff and then Juno at the top at the chart is in the sign of partners with a lot of energy about Sending stuff off into the into the difference into the distance so so knowing that we have a slow moon moving very slowly Across the across the sky well we have this Kazimi mercury so google it. There's it's a really good cool article on the Times in The New York Times with a picture of it going across. I posted it on facebook and they send it out on twitter so you can also I see it there but it's a it's a pretty intense one and Stuff's coming to light. You're seeing secrets. You're learning stuff you're processing you're releasing you're letting go your full mooning thing and then of course the moon then Wayne's down to the new moon in two weeks when the new moon takes place on November twenty six the Tuesday before Thanksgiving living and that one will be in the new of course in sage and that's going to be at four Sagittarius so there's a lot of energy in the sky about releases is letting go moving on the truth being told and learning stuff right because it's just really volatile heavens right now so we're learning all sorts of things you wanna pay attention to what you're learning it's important and it will really shape your future As you as you kind of settle into the knowledge and the wisdom list of what's coming in

Did Amazon just kick electric vehicle production into a higher gear?

Maryland makes for a smart investment. Make your move at Open Dot Maryland. Dot Gov did Amazon just kick electric vehicle production into a higher gear from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would in the electric car. Revolution seems to finally be happening and it's not just us going to be in personal cars last month. Amazon announced it would order one hundred thousand electric delivery trucks from Ribian and EV company that Amazon has invested in but which we should say has produced exactly zero commercial electric vehicles to date Ribian has time Amazon said the first ten thousand trucks would be on the road twenty twenty two the remainder by twenty thirty and the order would basically double the number of electric delivery vehicles in the World Stephanie Brindley only is an automotive analyst at IHS market. She said most people who have heard of Ribian are actually into electric luxury. SUV's ravine Dan has been around for about six years give or take and they first introduced to revealed their pickup truck and as she products at the Los Angeles auto show this last November and they're expecting to come to market in the next year or so and they're looking to compete in sort of a high end space. They want us to tackle align efforts from Range Rover and see that brand is a competitor for the utility vehicle people who WanNa go a little bit off the beaten path. How much of this market get as you look ahead a decade or two or three? How much of this market could be filled by automakers that maybe didn't exist a decade or two ago? It's still a challenge Alan Jr to break in and our forecast really for electric vehicles in the United States in twenty twenty five twenty twenty six is still seven point six percent of the market which is an important improvement from just under two percent last year but it's still a small percentage of the market. I think consumers aren't quite coming along. Yes fire and because automakers for additional automakers have come to bear on the segment pretty heavily it will be difficult for a brand that consumers aren't aware of to breakthrough through does Amazon's investment suggests that delivery fleets might actually be a new source of growth for I think the delivery fleets have been for several several years on target in the Commercial Space Amazon's making a little bit of an interesting play here and tying it to their sustainability goals so they may be willing to spend a little bit more on it and I don't know the size of Amazon's fleet at all but I'm pretty sure it's a lot bigger than one hundred thousand vehicles so it still only a portion of their fleet overall Paul but I still think there's a lot of opportunity in the commercial av space. If you're running an EP for a local delivery van you're usually not putting a ton of miles assigned to it into a day and if the fleet you own and it's going back at the end of the day to your own silos you had the ability to have the charging infrastructure that you need and keep it off a fossil fuels so that can be a benefit and a lot of different ways commercial vehicles especially in those short cities faces can be good opportunities as for Electric Vehicles Stephanie Brindley automotive analyst at Ihs Market Amazon's order for what it's worth will ultimately be worth about four billion dollars. Carribean wants all the trucks are produced and now for some related links. There's there's a good piece in Forbes on the size of Amazon's investment in Ribian and one from quartz about the impact on commercial e fleets worldwide. They're both at our website marketplace attack dot org but there is a interesting subplot to the ramp up in electric vehicles of all kinds and that is the grid Green Tech Media. It has a piece from last week about some key. Takeaways from this electric delivery van order and one is that electric utilities really need to start preparing to deal with the increased slow. That's coming from EVT's because of different charging times and locations. It's not likely that Amazon's new vans are gonNA. Take down the grid or anything but individual locations locations could run into real capacity problems and long-term. The grid does need some improvements. There's good reading wired from last year about how what it calls. The great plugging yes plugging is actually an opportunity to upgrade and strengthen our electrical infrastructure because we have plenty of time the revolution coming then again infrastructure and planning are those really are strong suits here in America.

States take on Google with antitrust investigation. This won't be quick.
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management learn more at ultimatesoftware dot com ultimate software people first and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Evan Lyle Rush enterprises is a big fan of Michigan as he put it. The future mobility is going to be decided right here in this state visit planted. 'EM DOT COM to find out why that's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. dot com. They are taking the fight to Google and facebook a lot of states a lot from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood this week. Attorneys general from forty eight states the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico announced their joining forces. They're investigating whether Google has engaged in anticompetitive headed behavior. Some of those ages are also part of another investigation into similar questions about facebook. The Google investigation will be directed at how the company's Search and advertising operations may inhibit competition the agee's are coming from both sides of the political aisle remembered bipartisanship and there are already other inquiries underway at the Federal Level Congress the FTC the Justice Department Stephen. Overly reports on tax check policy for politico. We asked him to give us a sense of what the stakes are in what state will be looking for one of the defining metrics for anticompetitive behavior if you're in the US is how it impacts the consumer and our consumers paying higher prices as a result of anti-competitive behaviour. That's trickier to measure with Google. Because most of us pay nothing to use. At least that's the conventional thinking but the argument that you've heard from some of these attorneys general is is that they feel. Google has a stronghold on digital advertising meaning. If you want to place ads online you have very few options beyond google to go to and so as a result these companies pay higher advertising prices and they pass those prices onto the consumer if the state attorney's find the Google all and facebook or did break antitrust laws what happens what can they do. One common outcome of these investigations is to require the companies to change their business practices practices and perhaps submit to sort of outside review to ensure that they have made those changes another approach could actually be to break up these companies for example facebook or Google might have to sell off a piece of their business or break off into two businesses. That's a pretty heavy undertaking There's not been a ton on of success with that in the past and so while these investigations are being announced and they're getting a lot of attention. I think it is a very a difficult legal road ahead for these enforcers if they're actually going to force change at these companies when my we actually see results of the investigation if if this investigation continues to mature and becomes a legal battle. We're likely looking at years of that playing out right now. I think it's clear these investigations are in the information gathering stage and so you know I think you'll start to see in the near future companies coming forward who who haven't already done so to make complaints against these companies and how they run their business. I should add that already. You know you're seeing some antagonise. UNISOM emerge in for example yelp on the review site has long been critical of Google and complain that they engaged in anticompetitive behaviour behavior news publishers have also long had complaints against Google and claim that it's advertising business has damaged their industry. Those industries have already started speaking out and I think you'll start to see more as these investigations mature. Stephen overly is a technology reporter for politico. Could anticompetitive behaviour savior also be seen in say facebook buying up instagram and WHATSAPP Stephen says maybe it really depends on the reasons behind the acquisitions and proving intention can be tough now here awesome related links. The aren't wasting time. They've already subpoenaed Google asking more than two hundred question than demanding record. The Wall Street Journal says some of the information requests get what I just mentioned about the intent behind some acquisitions like the buying of Doubleclick ad mob and add Meld Inc those are companies companies that helped build Google's AD business the only states attorneys general who are not yet part of the investigation into Google are those from Alabama and California in the latter's absence is pretty notable considering that it's a massive state home to Google with lots of resources and an attorney general's office. That's built a a strong antitrust team the AG Heavier Bezerra hasn't said why just that it needs to protect quote ongoing and potential investigations Gatien's the L. A. Times points out that but Sarah's political campaigns have received close to forty thousand dollars from Google related entities but then there are a bunch of other theories to the time reach out to get the opinions of a lot of experts. I alluded to the many acquisitions. FACEBOOK has made of other companies. It's kind of hard to know what the exact number is. The Wall Street Journal says that's around ninety tech wise put solicit just above seventy and tech wise has made an infant graphic. It got fifteen years of facebook shopping starting.

If you have the right software from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood when you were a kid. Probably as soon as you could string together sentences your parents drummed into you. The fact that you live at such and such Evergreen Terrace Springfield field wherever nowadays you can just make your kid remember three words like engine doors cubs or life gps budget and that string of random words is enough to point to a unique ten foot by ten foot patch of ground somewhere on the globe. What three words is a company. That's divvied. David the planet into fifty seven trillion squares each with its own unique string of three identifying words anyone with the company's APP or website can translate locations locations from those words it's been used to help direct emergency responders in the UK and even deliver mail in Mongolia. Chris Sheldrick is co founder and CEO we owe at what three words and he says traditional addresses are too often imprecise and overdue for improvement it is incredibly difficult still so in many parts of the world to get exactly to where you're going and in the UK and the US that can be getting to the right entrance of a building even if the address contemplates to the right place but in so much of the world's just oven areas or Roy areas just not properly match addressed tool so we wanted to provide a very simple yet accurate way all talking about any ten foot square in the world. I understand that addresses can be a little difficult to navigate advocate but I imagine a time when electricity will go out or cell service. We'll go down. Is there a way that we could use this. If we didn't have computer or smartphone capability I see what you mean if he had no smartphone and Kapiti capability yes you would be stuck to us three address in us. Norio Butts while smartphones are here with us and functioning then three would addressees can provide a really really good way to get around and just to be clear like we're not trying line to replace addresses or area names or any of this sort of historical ways that we talk about the world what we're trying to do is when you do have a small faint sane or call will some electric device which want to really simplify the way the you can communicate a precise location. How do you make money so what three words is is a free APP for consumers to use free website we license attack to businesses who wants to convert between three addresses and coordinates so for example well we charge our customers like Mercedes Benz to have what three words pre fitted into that calls. How do you see this being useful in the future as new technology develops so a lot of it is all around precision if you think about drones and drone delivery I mean Nolanda is a post to the trust can be good enough because you're gonNA have to specify the Franca another back on starting to see the software developers who make software for these kinds of things putting in what we were at this very early stage because the idea of somebody like manually typing in that GPS coordinates full adroit to make a delivery seems kind of difficult. Chris Sheldrick is CEO of what three words the words are random which can seem suspect when game winning goal points to a spot in Brazil. What do you do if you live at massive passive dinosaur pile. Can you lobby for a change. Sheldrick says nope that's locked in but you could just pick an adjacent square and now for some related links by the way you can't use what three words on Google or apple maps yet still. I've we've had fun looking at locations on what three words like if you're searching for able bodied gentlemen you'll have to swim. He's pretty far off the coast of Chile. If you're skeptical of what three words and it's mapping here not alone one what three words skeptic blogger terence eden takes issue with a lot of what the company offers most of all. He doesn't like that the company's. Algorithm is proprietary therefore secret which he says goes against the open source feel. It's going for one interesting side note. He points out is that tectonic shift means. Many spots will someday have to change the three words associated with their locations. There's no place I'd rather be right now than punk unfriendly cooking. If you're nervous about tech companies knowing and utilizing your location data you might might not like that apple appears to be preparing to hyper boost future phone models tracking and locating capabilities venture beat says leaks specs for co-processor processor code named rose APPs up phone sensors with it an iphone.

I'm jed kim in for molly would not having solid access to the internet is like competing in a three legged race tied to a cow looking for work. Most applications are online need to check your bank account. Pay bills dell's check medical records do homework. It's all easier if you're online and getting a lot harder if you're not detroit is one of the least connected big american cities according to the national digital inclusion alliance less than half of homes. There have broadband internet that means hundreds of thousands of detroiters stand stand on the losing side of a growing digital divide. It's judge edmunds job to help. Detroiters get online and so them why they need to. He's he's the city's first director of digital inclusion and he says the problem is in just infrastructure. We have several internet service providers and if you actually look at the provider data ninety eight to one hundred percent of detroit is covered with internet access. Sorry issue isn't necessarily internet access internet adoption meaning. What are the bears the technology adoption that are causing detroiters not to take advantage of getting into the home costing one of the big barriers. We look at poverty. Poverty directly exacerbates the digital divide something like the digital divide. That's maybe not well understood by. You know a lot of people a lot of times. When there's this kind of different understanding that there's often like a different language that's understood like is there any example of things that people say that somebody on the other side of the divide just wouldn't get yes when i was on focus groups with public housing residents in cleveland and we kept talking about applications like oh you know download an app download it up and <hes> people were thinking i was talking about job applications and that's such as light example but we've just taken technology and integrated it in and we get it but people don't this task does not sound easy and not cheap. What are you in the city gonna do to expand access us. I've identified five hundred sixty one free wifi sites all throughout the city of detroit that make money to do. I mean i'll be maybe my salary went to knowing. It and these aren't municipal networks. These are your mcdonald's or tim hortons that random nonprofit on the corner that church that has it if you go to any neighborhood where there's a lot of children and there's no library present and there's mcdonalds there. Those kids are going to mcdonald's to do their homework and i'm not saying that the city is saying go to mcdonalds and do your homework rather. It's very interesting to see the way that public wifi and free. Wi fi is driving people to certain places. I would say what's looming over. All of this is the fact that the census next year is going online and so when i have residents namely my older residents gordon were like no. I don't be like this. Are you know i don't feel comfortable during this. What are the implications around the sense. Uh being counted. There's a cast value that it every single resident has mike figure wrong but i believe every resident <hes> it's worth eighteen hundred dollars a year to the census so if you're not counted managing ask them locations around that joshua edmonds is the director of digital inclusion for the city of detroit.

Electric vehicles are getting noisier, for safety's sake
"The electric vehicles lack roaring engines. What should they on lake instead from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying hang the digital economy. I'm kim in for molly would <music> one of the strangest things to get used to about electric vehicles. It's out eerily quiet. They are it. It makes you realize how much we associate engine noise with driving that lack of sound can be problematic even deadly think about the visually impaired or anyone one blandly oblivious to vehicles because we're tearing at our smartphones in the european union. New models of electric vehicles will now have to make some kind of noise out of these safety fifty concerns. Some carmakers have already been doing that and they're taking it as an opportunity to craft signature sounds chris. Valance is a reporter for the bbc b._b._c. He reported on the designers need to think about when making that new car sound so i suppose the number one consideration is that this tells you something is coming that there is a car on its way but then within that of course you know like everything in a car manufacturer from i guests the cup holders to the keys as a kind of chance to say something about the brand so few manufacturers have been doing this for awhile ahead of rules that are going to require roll new electric models in europe to have one of these what they called acoustic vehicle alert system. I wanna visited jank. You're which is calm armani factory with the long roots in the u._k. Because they'd already put one of these systems in their new electric s._u._v. the jaguar apace and we actually have have the sound of the i._p._c. collected it. You know that sound has gone through a pretty lengthy development process before it hit those interestingly. The sound design process starts really before the visuals of the car. Finally i said jaguars so they start with kind of like mood boards boards and then they sort of try out the sounds now i think one of the initial sounds they came up with was a sort of flying sources sound and that was sort of problematic because <hes> they said that people wouldn't look at the roads that we sort of looking at the sky because you know what does a flying saucer so try the sounds <hes> some were they felt were a little little bit too futuristic like this synthetic engine sound <music> rather sounds that are sort of layers is they then build up the the finish sound from so. I rather like this which i thought was a bit like the deck of the star destroyer <music> but they want something a bit more. They thought it was a bit more positive so let's say let's say the st engineering planning falcon. We're talking about changing the very the sound of a busy street why not just try to replicate the sound of a moving car. You know we we recognize well. I think for the bronze i it's it's sort of an opportunity to to really make a statement about their vehicle. They are kind of designing away the future sound of the streets and that certainly concern for the designers jaguar. I mean they. They played me a mock up there and made of water a whole street full of their new i of their r._e._i. Pace cars would sound like we can. We can hear a little bit of concern. There actually actually was that you know the internal combustion sounds. They blend quite well. I mean you can argue about that but you know we used to. The noise that lots of internal combustion engines never very concerned that the sounds of their cash as well and they played me what it would sound like if you got it completely wrong. It's it's pretty annoying really so. It's dentist's drill isn't it. I mean not serve like are there any rules or regulations limiting. The sounds like cars are we'll be able to make yes there. Are there lots of rules and regulations. They talk about you know. The restrictions on frequent says they specifically sort of rule allowed some kind of sounds like a memory serves. I think you mentioned the random sounds like waterfall sounds. You know it can't just be anything. I mean you're not going to get the hamster dance up from gaza anytime soon chris valance reports for the bbc he says it's easy to fred about all these annoying sounds filling streets gapes but the designers in car makers say the future of our roads with more e._v.'s and they're fake sounds will not only be safer but actually quieter than today and now for some related links if you really value peace and quiet. You may be glad to learn that b._m._w. Is finishing up a program to install a hundred e._v. Charging stations at or near national parks it helps address the problem of e._v.

This is marketplace tech demystifying digital economy. I'm jed kim in for molly would i. I need a glacken spiel because why not thing is. I know pretty much. Nothing nothing about what makes for a good clocking spiel and when you search for glacken spiel on amazon you get flooded with more than two thousand results fortunately one of the results. Let's has the label of amazon's choice but it turns out that label isn't always a great indicator of quality nicole. Newman is a technology reporter. Ed buzzfeed news. The amazon's choice label helps boost item sales which also helps amazon since it gets a cut but new and says there's not much known about how the designation gets awarded who is choosing this product is it jeff bezos and selfish amazon employees at a robot and amazon is pretty much a black box walks in terms of how big their marketplaces how many products get amazon's choice the designation and the reason why they don't publicize numbers ars is because they're changing all the time because amazon's choices partially automated that label is awarded and then taken away every single minute of every day okay so it's impossible to track but anecdotally amazon's choice is not indicative of high quality products necessarily. How can this be manipulated. Well because review manipulation is so widespread on the platform and by review manipulation. I mean like fake reviews reviews for an entirely different product. That isn't the product in the listing. As long as reviews are one of the metrics used to gauge whether or not a product should get this very special label. There's really no reason for consumers to trust amazon's choice. So what is the solution here. I mean do i need to double. Check all my purchases. It gets like consumer reports or something like that. Yes i highly recommend doing off. Amazon research do a cursory google does does that brand exist outside of amazon. A quick search can really mitigate a lot of that. <hes> read the reviews if the reviews are suspiciously all five stars. That's that's a huge red flag. If the reviews don't even refer to their product that's being sold. That's a huge red flag and there are sites like consumer reports and wire cutter and good housekeeping that scientifically review recommend products so i would highly recommend using those sites while you're shopping sounds like a lot of work. I'm shocked that the five star thing is a red flag because my goal is to find the product that does close to five stars possible but you're telling me that's a mistake. I know it's deeply upsetting because us you know rating systems are everywhere tripadvisor yelp amazon and they can be manipulated very easily and this is twenty nineteen eighteen and that is the story of two thousand nineteen. The coal new one is a technology reporter buzzfeed news by the way the reviews of amazon's choice squawk and spiel not not so great. I'm going to ask our music what he recommends. You'll this one he's left in the studio. It's this why i can't stop thinking about guada- feels and now for some related related links the wall street journal writes that amazon has essentially given up control of its site to third party sellers. That's led to a whole lot of unsafe products being listed for sale. The journal says it found more than forty one hundred items that were quote declared unsafe by federal agencies are deceptively labeled or are banned by federal regulators emma's legal defense because there have been lawsuits over deaths related to some of the items is that it just provides a platform for third party sellers others by the way third party sales now account for sixty percent of what gets sold on amazon amazon owned audible is being sued by several major book publishers. There's over a new feature. It's releasing in some public schools. The verge explains that the feature provides captioning of audio books so that listeners can read along in real time the problem kim is that audible hasn't licensed the audiobooks it bases its speech to text captioning on audible believes it's protected because the words are generated by artificial intelligence.

That's pretty smart apple c._e._o. Tim cook once said this about the company's unease legacy what was apple's greatest contribution to mankind it will be about health but the health efforts may have stalled from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm ali would <music> while they're back in two thousand eighteen. It seemed like apple was really going to upend the health industry. The company announced an app that could monitor your heart rate and detect irregularities. It was bringing your medical records to your iphone. It even launched its own healthcare clinics employees and families which people saw as a trial balloon for understanding the industry but this week c._n._b._c.'s christina far reported that several people have left the apple health division. We called her up for quality assurance. The segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. She told us the employees were frustrated. It over the company's lack of organization and ambition so there's definitely been some tension in timely about you know where to focus on their sicker patients who are definitely definitely more costly to the system or just to build more of these sort of wellness tools for the every day us <hes> <hes> who may or may not deeply care or even need these products products and when you have seen them say. Let's go in the medical direction. I think there's also been tension about how they roll out those products because it may not make sense wants to have a splashy apple launch just like they do with any other tool or feature for a product that is more medical and scope <hes> that typically you see in the medical we'll space <hes> much more focused and targeted launches that include a lot of conditions and a lot of transparency and not just really isn't natural to apple right and isn't it fair to say it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that apple wouldn't necessarily pivot hard in the direction of really overhauling the health care system since you know i mean you could really argue that. Its primary focus is to create features and or services that sell hardware. That's how it makes. Its money absolutely and some employees recognized that and perhaps those is the the employees that remain happy at the company and a thriving there <hes> but if you're a company like apple you're one of the largest if not the largest company in the world right now now and there are people who are very ambitious who want to do something more <hes>. Many of these people either had a medical background where they joined apple health because they had a passion for the space. Maybe it was their own brush with the healthcare system or a loved one and they want to do something more and so for those people i can imagine it being difficult difficult well. An apple is not the only company who is sort of tried to come at the healthcare industry in some way and yet it feels like a lot of those efforts have stalled. I wonder do you think the tech industry runs into the health industry and goes wow this is harder than we thought yes <hes> and the cultures between these two sorts of industries is so different in medicine the biggest <hes> idea that sort of everybody believes in is that we should do know home which is really kind of a risk of us in slightly conservative philosophy in attack. It's all about you know moving fos and breaking things and these two visions for how to move forward don't necessarily work <hes> when there are pushed together dr christina far is a health and tech reporter for c._n._b._c. and now for some related links we of course have a link to christina's piece about the apple departures over at marketplace tech dot org as for other big tech companies representatives from amazon alphabet apple and microsoft met with big healthcare providers in d._c. Last month a yahoo story about those meetings has a nice round up of the efforts by the four companies in the healthcare space and it notes that microsoft alphabet specifically are all about using artificial intelligence for future healthcare developments whether it's disease detection or reducing adducing costs with better healthcare records keeping however on wednesday the co founder of google's a._i.

One of those controversies came in two thousand seventeen hospital in london was working with deep mind on a project to help doctors diagnose patients ask who might be at risk of kidney problems but you know how a._i.

Uber reports $1 billion loss in first post-IPO quarterly results
"Uber's I report as a public company and it was a doozy. And by that I mean Uber. Lost a billion dollars in just ninety days. Jason, we've seen unprofitable startups lose money and investors will still buy the shares. You look at the stock Uber's basically flat on Friday, and that tells me among other things that they're not really doing anything just yet to get Wall Street excited. I mean, I think that's a fair statement. I think the story for investors when it comes to. It's figuring out all of the different ways they can leverage this network to make money. And so today, that's the rideshare business. That's new mobility, scooters. Uber eats business, super freight. These are all pieces to that overall puzzle for me. I mean the twenty percent topline growth a navy. My expectations were just a little bit higher that seemed kind of you know not not nothing to write home about. But by the same token grows bookings, Rupp thirty four percent to fourteen point six billion dollars trips grew thirty six percent. And that's good as well. I think if if you look at the call certainly the theme was ubereats. I think that's where they're really seeing the biggest opportunity at least in the near term gross bookings for that side of the business, where three point one billion dollars. It was up one hundred seventeen percent excluding currency. They have two hundred twenty thousand restaurants on board with that network. The thing is with food delivery. There's the economics of it can be tricky. There are expenses in maintaining that network. It's not always a no brainer for the restaurants either in in. We're seeing grub hub dealing. Some of those challenges as more of the pure play there. So I mean I, I you as an impressive businesses an impressive network. I think with a lot of potential. They're going to have to figure out as they go along away to become profitable with these four main drivers. I know a lot of people are looking towards those self driving cars thinking, that's really the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow just got to recognize that still at least a decade away, feeling people who are thinking that we're going to be surrounded by these self-driving cars in the next few years, just a naive point of view in my, my opinion I could be wrong. Of course. I saw some interesting analysts comm comments that price competition with lift might be dying down. Which would be good for them would increase take rates, which is the amount of money that Uber can keep after after paying drivers. So, you know profitability must be right around the corner, if, if the corners on the moon, but, you know, when you don't have profits you talk about the path to profitability, that's the big word and path to profitability for me is just a euphemism for we don't make any money. And, you know, I don't know how to the stock if they don't make money, well, but to that point, I mean you go back to the top line revenue, Jason, it may, I think if Uber had come out in this quarter and grown top line revenue. Forty percent fifty percent, something like that. I think that just Wall Street a little bit more extended as you said, twenty percents, it's like well, that's fine.

How curiosity risk taking and serendipity can revolutionize how you work in with none other than Joel comm of the book. With the same title, the fun formula Joe's great guy asked him sent over his bile, like, I'm like, yo sent over an updated bio, and he sent over Joel is my friend. So you know what? That's what we're going to go with because Joel is my friends, and we're going to dive into this episode this incredible audio masterclass. When we get back from thinking our sponsor, okay, fire nation, stop way. You're doing grab a pen and paper or your phone and write down this. You are l. are you ready? It's WWW dot, watch Billy's video dot com. On that page, my friend, Billie Jean put together a training for you. This going to solve the number one problem facing businesses in two thousand eighteen getting quality customers consistently and affordably. The video is short as valuable. It's entertaining, and you'll only regret ignoring it for as long as you already have. Again, it's WWW dot watch Billy's video dot com, and you should not go to bed tonight without watching it ignite. So JOL say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people just don't know what is happening Univation that is on the way go. You know what's Johnny, something interesting that I think a lot of people don't know is I EV been a lifelong computer gamer. You know? I was, I always been into electronic games and before we had trying to get a games, I had pinball machines which I guess our electric. But I mean, I remember when pong came out, I remember when spaced Vader's asteroids came up. I had a computer in nineteen eighty and to this day, if you know if I have access to my computer, I will spend a little time shooting things, you know, or or playing some sort of game on my computer nerd you are nerd and I love that. But you also like to have fun in the non compete around and we know one thing I was thinking you might share was that you once wrote a very romantic rollercoaster with jail, the Pacific beach, San Diego, California. Yeah, that was great fun. In fact, if you guys go to YouTube, I think just search for fun with Joel calm and. John do missing there and and we did a pilot episode for a show when I was in San Diego and you, you were my guest, and we talked about, you know your career and in how you have fun in what you do. But we also went to what was the name of the mission beaches at it mission beach, definitely. At the oldest wooden rollercoaster in all of California. We wrote that coaster and people can go and enjoy us crack up laugh and having a good time doing now, Mont park. And that was a good time. We definitely had some fun and fire nation is kind of a theme that we're on right now because this audio Massa class is the fun formula. How curiosity risk-taking in Seyran dippy? Can revolutionize how you work with none other than our guest Joel comm. So Joel give us a quick overview of what this massacre is going to be, and then we'll dive into specifics. I think that there is messaging taking place right now out there. In the business realm, especially directed at young people, but everybody's hearing it that if you want to succeed it, your work in at your life, you have to hustle and grind. You need to be up early. You need to crank away at it all day long. You need to stay late. You need to work weekends because if you really want it, this is how to get it. And I think it's a big lie. Now I'm not saying that there isn't times and places for hard work, but you know, previous generations told us at hard workers virtue and I agree with that. But there are those in our culture that have taken the materialism messaging to the next level and they're telling us that ten x, the hard work will bring ten x virtue in results in it simply not the case. It's a destructive philosophy that doesn't work for the majority of individuals and ends up leaving them, discouraged dissatisfied with broken relationships and. Directionless and it's time to change it and swing the pendulum back to a reasonable place. I couldn't agree more. I
