That means that Danny Perez, speaker designated to the Florida House, is with us. Speaker Perez, welcome. Speaker designated Perez. Welcome. We have two segments with you. One we're going to play tomorrow. So I want to start very quickly and not do our normal chitchat banner. Danny, I like to talk about banner, especially about how the Bronx are going to beat the Dolphins in the playoffs. But Danny, let's talk about cash bail. Actually, let's start with school choice. We'll do cash bail tomorrow. Florida passed it. Is it working? It is working, although we've had to make a couple changes. You have to remember our goal. Our goal was to make sure that every child didn't fit within the same box and that a parent had a choice of which curriculum or which school they would send their child to. We accomplished that. But so did many other states. Where I think Florida was able to separate themselves from every other state is we were the first state that was able to mirror the policy with the budget. And that was important because we always had the policy, but we didn't necessarily have the budget. This year, we did the budget during our regular session to mirror our policy on school choice, on ESA. How did we do that? We did two things. One, we took out what was called categoricals. So we were giving money to school boards based on the per student ratio. But we were asking the school board to limit it to certain categoricals. So we were saying, hey, for school bus drivers, this is the money you can spend on school bus drivers. What was happening, school bus drivers weren't being used as much today as they were 10 years ago. So money was being left over and they weren't able to go and change that over to teacher salaries, for example. So we took out many categoricals. That was number one. And I think that was most important, especially in Miami-Dade County. And then second, what we did is that we made sure that all wait lists or caps on certain groups of students were taken away. And what do I mean by that? When we passed our ESA model, our universal school choice, school voucher bill during the regular session, we put a cap on children with developmental disabilities. And that was based on a budget on the money that was coming in. And I don't think we realized how many parents were going to take advantage in a good way of the program of school choice. Well, we quickly realized we reached that cap for those children with unique abilities very quickly. So what did we do? We went back for a special session and we removed that cap. Let me ask you a specific about that. I had many friends of my kids when they were growing up who were dyslexic and they went to schools that were specifically organized for dyslexic students. And they were expensive. Is that the kind of thing we're talking about? Absolutely. Assuming that the school were to accept the voucher program. Now that's another thing, too, because you're starting to see more schools are accepting the voucher program, but it's not all types of schools. And sometimes you need a specific set of skills on behalf of a teacher to attend some of that. That's what I'm working from. But it was expensive. It is. And, you know, I think the more expensive the school, the lesser chance they'll take the program. But nonetheless, at least in Florida, we're starting to see an increased amount of schools that are receiving the voucher program. And we're talking about developmental disabilities. We're not only talking about autism. I mean, we're talking about ADD, for example, ADHD and all sorts of autism on the spectrum. So some that are actually functional that you and I to the naked eye may not understand that this person is unique and has this developmental disability. They also will be a part of the program. You know, and here's really where and this is a huge part of my platform as incoming speaker of the Florida House. My brother's autistic. So I grew up in this world. I know what this world is about. And I very rarely spoke about it. But, you know, he still lives with my parents, but he lived with me until the day I left my house, which in the Cuban culture, we don't leave until we get married. But here's what was interesting to me is, you know, the sacrifice here isn't really the child. It's the parents. It's being able to provide for this child in a way that you don't think you can ever reach because your hands are tied based on what God has given you. And when I'm watching that, my children, which I have three, a five year old, a three year old, and I have a four week old at home. Oh, you got a vacation. I did. But don't tell my wife. She's listening this morning on the way over here. She's like, how'd you sleep? I'm like, oh, I slept terrible. You I slept like a baby. I know. Oh, don't listen. Don't listen. So so something to myself, man, my daughter, five years old, my son, three years old, blessed. They're blessed. I'm so lucky they're able to receive this voucher program. Yet there's a child who's on a wait list that can't receive the program because they have developmental disabilities. I mean, that's that is that was insane. So we fix it. You know, in Florida, when we see a problem, we hit it head on. And so we were able to change it in this last special special session. And and I think it's the supply side of schools that are private. I had last night dinner with the CMO, a charter management organization, and they tell me the back rooms of some of the new schools just aren't working as well as they need to. Do you have supply rising to meet the demand that it allows? We do. We do. We definitely do have the supply to reach the demand. We're still working on out the kinks on the payment. You got to remember how the voucher program works. And right now, the procedure, which I think we're going to fix it again, by the way, the way that the procedure works in Florida is the schools have to front the money and then have to report the students that are receiving the voucher to the state in order for the state to reimburse. Now, what's happening? Some of these schools are smaller than others. Yeah. And there's a gap and there's a wait period and there's 30 days. The float is bad if you're small. It is. It is. I'll tell you the most common ask for help I am receiving in my district office is the small school saying, Danny, can you please call and tell them to hurry up? Because I can't hold more than 30 days. So we got to pay their staff. They got to pay their insurance. They got to pay their buildings and ground. I get the float. That's why it's payday lenders exist, but you don't want them going to payday lenders. You want them to payday lenders are fine for certain things, but not for school. Danny Perez, come back tomorrow. I talked to you about Coconut Grove and the NBC debate because I want to move to Coconut Grove. So we need a state bill to establish a radio studio in Coconut Grove.

What YOU Can Do to Fight the Proposed Heat Ordinance in Miami Dade
"The most important thing that we need people to do is call their commissioners. Okay. And before the only voices that were being heard were the WeCount voices and the labor, you know, organization. They were the ones calling. And they need to call every single commissioner and ask them to vote no on the heat ordinance. Okay. We have a list, guys, that's been provided. We're going to probably, Eddie, you think we can put that down in the bio or down underneath in the description? Every single commissioner's number and name? Name, number and email addresses. And, you know, I know we're a text and email kind of society, but the phone calls matter. Like take the time, you know, at this point they're asking just for, are you opposed or for it? So it, you know, it shouldn't take you more than 25 minutes to call all of them. It's really important to get those phone calls out. The second thing that we'll, you know, put in the description is a link for a petition. That is something that, you know, we do have commissioners that are standing behind us, right. And that see this for what it is. And so they, I think that for them, it's important to see the amount of support that this opposition has, you know, it's kind of a double negative for them to understand that that people are opposed to this. Yeah. There's a large amount of people that are against it. Yeah. Because this at the end of the day is catastrophic for this industry and it'll drive a lot of people out of this industry. You know, people are paycheck to paycheck. Most, you know, I would say 50 % of the industry is struggling right now. Rents went up, everything. And now you throw this on top. As owners of businesses. I mean, if we're going to get sued just because someone's upset or they get out. Or we didn't call them every two hours. Right. And then they turn us in, then we get the fines for that many people in the field. And then you get the lawsuits. I mean, who wants to stay in business in Miami -Dade County when you have that happening? No, no one will. And by the way, if you're a landscaper and you're kind of sitting there being like, I'm good. They're next. You're next. No, and it's not just that. This is not where it's going to end. No, but this is how it affects. So how does it affect you? So you're a landscaper. How does it affect you? I'm good. I don't have any worries. Yeah, you do. Because where are you going to buy the plants to make the installs? They're going to be more expensive. Where are you going to get them at? Or where are you going to get them? So that's something to think about too. So if you're listening and you're like, oh, I'm good. Call for your buddy that has a nursery, that you love them, that you guys have a great relationship, that you buy the product off of them. Call for him and make that happen. Yeah, agriculture and construction are two of the biggest industries in this county. So again, everybody should care about this. Everybody. Everybody should care about this because it affects the overall. It'll put a halt on construction, which good and bad for some people, depending on what side you sit on. But they could put a massive halt. It could put a massive halt. And then why is it just these two industries? Why? It's very discriminatory because of just being agriculture and construction. Yeah, there's a lot of other industries. You're a car wash. You do the car detailing, boat detailing. You know, there's an array. You're a fisherman. Now you got to make sure you look over to chip, you know, that's there, bait in the line for you and tell them, hey, give me some water or drink some water. It's discriminatory towards these two industries. And one other point to make is that OSHA is actively addressing new standards or revised standards, let's say, for heat that would apply nationwide. Like OSHA do their jobs. Do you guys know if there's these ordinances in other states like Arizona, like Texas that get way hotter than we do? There are. It's either six or seven states that have them. And I'm going to rattle off a few of them, Washington State, California, Nevada, Minnesota, and I think New Mexico. So generally Western states and all of those states work together with their local OSHA. So they don't have a regulatory scheme or the fine structure that this has. They piggyback off of the already existing OSHA fines. So what I love about this is there's a lot of you guys involved that are really high ups and all these organizations that are, you know, fighting against this for us. Guys, they're fighting against it for these industries. They're basically our voice that's out there trying to make it right. It's like, we're not against it a hundred percent, but we are against all these fine print things that do not make any sense. And we already have things implemented. So I'm just very glad that we have people like you that have dedicated so much time because you guys, I'm sure you dream about this at this point. They're not called dreams though. Yeah, they're not dreams. You don't dream. They're called nightmares. They're called nightmares, you know, of just all of this stuff and how this can just really ratify the whole industry and the whole county. You know, I don't think they understand to what extent it can be taken and how drastic of ordinance it is when you read the fine print. And we all love our employees. We want our employees to thrive. We want them to be landlords one day and own real estate and climb up the ladder. And they got to buy plants. We love it. But it can be done if there's walls that are bigger than we can climb, put in front of us, it's easier to just cash out and leave. And it's going to put, it will put a lot of people out of business. I see that. Yeah, I agree. But it's just a form of control and coming in and looking over your shoulder. It's like a big brother just watching everything you do. And next time they're going to be telling us how to go to the bathroom. For me, the commissioners, it's like, guys, you guys worked so hard to make Miami -Dade County what it is today to get the richest people from all over the world to come to Miami and start up their business. We have Amazon here. We have so much going on, so much power. You have people doing high rises. We have a billion dollar bridge being built. And now you want to do this. That's going to really, and construction and agriculture. I mean, agriculture did $36 .4 billion last year in the state of Florida. And a lot of it came from here. It's a bad look for the county. But it's like, we take 20 steps up and then now we get hit 19 back. Same thing with what happened with the labor. It's like, come on guys, wake up, smell the coffee. This is not good
Who's Behind the Contentious New Heat Ordinance in Miami Dade?
"You think there's a reason why it's targeting our industries? Do they want nurseries and farmers down here in Miami -Dade County? They want us out of here and construction workers because it makes it almost impossible for a peaceful working place because you can, you know, it can be a battle zone. I think it's the organization that's pushing it. And I think it's, I think it's for attorneys, the benefits attorneys for the lawsuits and unionizing the workforce. Do you think that the organization that's doing this, do you think that they know the effects of what this will cause to this strong, powerful, impactful, wonderful, beautiful industry and the construction industry? I don't believe, the politicians for sure don't. Okay. Because I mean, they're just thinking, they're making themselves look good, feel good by trying to pass something that we already have rules in place for. And no, I don't think they realize how, I don't even think the politicians read it all the way through before they got proposed. They did not understand how it would have, or even think about how it would affect us. And they didn't ask us. They didn't ask. I'm just going to keep going on like, man, you know, like, Hey, you know, everybody has my phone number. I asked, I told him he came to one of the ag practice board meetings unannounced and I told him, you didn't talk to anyone. I'm president of Farm Bureau. I know every farmer in the area because I grew up here and not, you did not talk to anyone. He couldn't answer it. So he just danced around it. And I see that you guys are very passionate about it and me as well. You know, I'm born and raised out here, 17 years with Costa, you, your whole life, fourth generation, 1905, 1907. You know, so these, these guys are very credible in just their passion behind it and why they feel a certain way. It's not fair to the community at the end of the day. We're just, we're just trying to make it happen. You know, we have the economy against us. We have competition against us. We have price hikes against us. We have labor shortages against us. We have so many things up against us. And now we're getting slapped with something else that, that could potentially felt like, yeah, this can sink the ship. This one. Yeah. And look, and it just felt, it felt personal, you know, because it's like, you're, you're taking the word of one organization that we don't care about our people. Come on. And, and no one knows, you know, that we, like we are, we're, we're upset. We take it personally because we do every day. No, and you can go and everyone has a smile. You can go to any nursery here and say hi to the guy that's attending you. And I guarantee you who have a smile on his face. And that's just how it is out here. And real quick, the statistics that they keep quoting about people getting sick from the heat or having heat exhaustion or deaths or any of that. Go look and see where that's from. It's a lot of people from the city. It's the people from out of town that are not used to the heat. The elderly who might not have air conditioning. That aren't working even in agriculture. And the tourist, they just happen to be in Miami -Dade County. You got to look at the details, but it's not our employees in the area.
Miami Dade's New HEAT ORDINANCE: The Fine Print
"So talk to us and tell us what is proposed in this ordinance, aside from what we've spoken about, but what's in that five print that has, you know, most of the people that know about this ordinance upset? One of the things are the fines and the fines and the department that the county is going to start is going to be fine -based. So it's going to be strictly run and paid for by fines. So then that just means the inspector is going to come out. He's going to find something wrong so they can raise money for their department. So this is one of the, you know, one of the really most objectionable parts for us, which is the creation of a new agency or a new office in Miami -Dade County dedicated to the health and welfare. So it's not just heat. Right. And so what we start to see is that this can encourage health and welfare. Yeah. So where's the health and safety? Yeah. It's not just, I can't remember now if it's health and safety or health and welfare, you know, welfare of employees in Miami -Dade County. But in any event, it doesn't exist right now. It would be newly formed and funded 100 % by fines. And it will be fines in the agriculture, horticulture and construction industries only. Only. When there's a bunch of other industries that are outside labor as well. And so what happens is that right now, you know, we'll say, well, you know, is that really that bad? Well, look, first of all, OSHA already does this, right? And OSHA has a set of rules in place that we all follow, that we all know what they are, and they have to give us notice, for example, before they come onto our properties. In this, there is none of that. So what it opens up really, and I think what's most concerning and which should be concerning to everybody listening to this, is that now the county would have the unfettered right to come onto our properties, presumably under heat, but they could be looking for all kinds of other things because this would open the door to an expansion there. It's so unclear, but we don't want that door to open. I mean, we've got OSHA in place. They could start regulating every other aspect of our business. I mean, they could come on, they say they're coming in to look at heat. They could see when you're a tractor driver, someone driving a tractor. They're like, I think I need to start regulating the tractor driving. They need licenses to drive the tractors or this or that. Yeah, it can just open doors. Yes. What are some of the reasons people can get fines based off this new ordinance? Yeah, so the fines are based on the proposed ordinance says you have to have a heat plan in place, which we do already. We need to have that in place for OSHA. Which is just water. Well, water rest and shade, right? You know, under the general welfare clause of OSHA, we have to provide break rooms. And so this would mandate having this and then every having a mandatory 10 minute break every two hours. That's paid for. Having shade enough area, as it's described, so that every person on your work site could stand without touching each other. So it's pretty specific on infrastructure there. It applies to every outdoor environment, including people working under pull bars, for example. Yeah, that do have, you know, cover from the sun. It has a very specific range on the temperature of the water. So when you ask, you know, how are the fines imposed? The fines are imposed because they can come and test your water. And if it's one degree off, fines of ranging from $1 ,000 to $3 ,000 per person. They have a very specific range. It's 35 to 77. Under 35 is basically ice. But so at least 77 degrees. A maximum of 77 degrees. And then one of some other aspects of that is you have to verbally tell the people every two hours and every two hours. You have to verbally tell them. And if you don't, right. To drink water, take a break and drink water. And you could get fined if you don't. If you don't tell them. Don't tell them. So that's physically calling every single individual on staff, letting them know that they have to stop. You actually have to have enough supervision so that you've got a supervisor for 20 employees that would be there to tell them that every physically. So for every 20 employees, you've got to have a supervisor now in place to be able to tell them they need to drink water, which is something that they obviously know to drink water. If I'm not mistaken, you can get a fine for not telling them to drink water. Is that correct? That is correct. If you don't have that reminder in place. And look, and one of the outcomes of all of this that we see is that you're going to be creating a pretty antagonistic environment where it becomes very easy for an employee. Because there is, and gosh, there's just so many problems with this. In the fine print. Yeah, there's no due process. So which means that once the fine is imposed, there's no appeal process. You cannot appeal it. You cannot appeal it. So of course. What are the fines ranging in? Between $1 ,000 and $3 ,000 per person. So if you have 10, to say you have 10 people working in the field, that's let's just say a $2 ,000 fine. So that's going to be 2 ,000 times those 10 employees. So guys listen to this. $20 ,000. So every day you have to tell them every two hours to drink water. If you skip one time because you had a vacation planned or your wife got sick, or now you're in the hospital. Now you have your whole staff that can sue you on top of getting a fine just because you didn't tell them to drink water. And that's how it works. And you were also saying, which that is not fair. In my opinion, you were also saying that if your coworker, talk about the coworker. Everybody's liable on this. So even your coworker working with you, say someone's getting heat exhaustion. If you don't recognize that and report it, then you could actually fall as a potentially liable for that person also. So you can get sued. So it goes all the way to the landowners, all the way down the line from employees to supervisors, owners, landowners, and so
The Truth Behind Miami's Controversial New Heat Ordinance
"Today's podcast is very important and we have two very important individuals here that know way too much about this topic. And they're going to be talking about everything that you need to know, whether you know about the heat ordinance or not. You're going to want to listen to this because they have a lot of information. These are the two individuals that are on the forefront of what this is and how this can affect just nursery growers. It's basically agriculture, horticulture, and construction. What you need to know for the employer, for the landlord, for your partner, for your coworker, and for the employees. We're going to be diving in. I'm going to let them introduce themselves. We're going to start off with you, madam. Ariana Cabrera de Oña Hello. My name is Ariana Cabrera de Oña. I am the Senior Vice President, Chief People Officer, and General Counsel for Costa Farms, which is just a long -winded way of saying I manage people and legal for Costa Farms. I've been with Costa Farms and this industry for 17 years. Willie Rodriguez 17 years. So you're passionate about the industry. Ariana Cabrera I really am. Willie Rodriguez And you know a little bit about it. Ariana Cabrera I know a little bit about it. Willie Rodriguez And you're my friend? Barney Rutsky Yes. I'm Barney Rutsky. I've been in the industry my entire life. My family moved here in 1907 from vegetable farming to tropical fruit farming, now in the nursery industry. And I've worked in all aspects of agriculture from the fields to management to canicking in the shops so I can understand the heat and all the aspects of it also. Willie Rodriguez Yeah, 100 percent. Barney Rutsky I'm also President of the Dade County Farm Bureau here and Vice President of Dade County FNGLA Chapter. And I'm on the Ag Practice Board, which is an advisory board for Miami -Dade County on ag issues. And I'm on the Trek Tropical Research and Education Board Advisory Board also. Willie Rodriguez And Trek is with UF, the University of Florida. Yeah, if you guys don't know what that is. So you're on a couple boards. Barney Rutsky Yes. Willie Rodriguez Just a few. Barney Rutsky Yes. Willie Rodriguez Congratulations. Ariana Cabrera Told you he knows a lot. Willie Rodriguez Congratulations. You guys are awesome. I'm very glad you guys are here today. So I want to start off, guys, we're going to be breaking it down into four categories. How did this ordinance come about? What has been proposed in the ordinance? How can this affect our listeners, our people in the industry down here in these three categories in Miami -Dade County? And what can people do today? So let's start. I wanted to know, I wanted to start with how did this come to pass? How did we get here? If you can enlighten everyone on that. Ariana Cabrera So this is a heat ordinance proposed in Miami -Dade County. There was a heat ordinance that was proposed several months back by a different commissioner. And once we were able to have some good conversations about, you know, our practices and the fact that OSHA already governs heat standards. Willie Rodriguez Excuse me. Ariana Cabrera That was Willie Rodriguez OSHA for you guys, just so you know, is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Ariana Cabrera Correct. Willie Rodriguez Sorry. Ariana Cabrera Part of the Department of Labor. It's a federal agency. So once we had those conversations, the heat ordinance, you know, they realized that there was no need for it and it went away. Very quietly, a new heat ordinance was proposed late in the summer. And it was proposed by Commissioner McGee and Commissioner Bastien, they're the prime co -sponsors on this. And as soon as we in agriculture found out what, you know, that this had been proposed and it was actually much worse even than a California -style heat ordinance. Once we found that it had been proposed, we mobilized through Farm Bureau, through FNGLA and a few of us from Costa Farms to go start talking to commissioners to ensure that they knew what was in it. I know we're going to talk in a minute. We're going to talk about what's in it exactly. But just to kind of give you some of the history on here, honestly, and you know, Barney can back me up on this. We were not able to get in front of commissioners to have these discussions. We would call and make appointments with their offices. And nine times out of 10, we met with staff who were great and very knowledgeable and, you know, open to hearing what we had to say, but we never had a chance to speak to commissioners. And that's important because one of the things that just blows my mind with all of this is that in the ordinance itself, in the proposed ordinance, in one of the whereas clauses, which is, you know, legal jargon for their explanation as to why we need it, they cited a study that had been conducted by WeCount, which is a local labor activist organization. And in that study, they cited the need for this heat ordinance based on 11 interviews that were conducted in 2015 and 300 surveys that were conducted in 2016. Okay. Okay.

"All right, so today we're going to do a little bit of a project breakdown, look a little bit further into Helium Mobile and what's happening over there. I think you're going to love it. This will be a breakdown. I think that, you know, we've done a couple of these, so make sure and drop a few comments if you do like it. We always appreciate that. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back in the Tech Path. All right, joining me today is Frank Meng, who is the COO over at Nova Labs. Great to have you back on the show. Oh, hey. It's great to be back. It's been about a couple of years since we last talked. Long time, long time. A lot has happened, obviously, with Helium Mobile rolling out, and I wanted to get kind of an update, obviously, for some of our viewers. They maybe don't even know about Helium Mobile. Give us a little bit of an outline of where you guys are today. I know, obviously, the launch here in Miami, but give us kind of an update our audience, so to speak. Yeah, no problem. For those that remember, Nova Labs is the company launching Helium Mobile, the service. Our background has been around for 10 years, co -founded by Sean Fanning and Amir Haleem. Sean Fanning is known for Napster and companies like that, and Amir Haleem is our current CEO. We've been at this for now quite a bit of time. The main objective for our company has always been to figure out how to build massive wireless networks at extremely large scales. Our first attempt at this was with an IoT network, now known as the Helium IoT network. That's been open -sourced, owned by the community, operated and governed by the Helium Foundation. That's going, and that is across 180 countries, 70 ,000 some -odd cities. At the peak of the network size, there's roughly close to a million hotspots around the world, which is great. What we've done since open -sourcing that is created a new company and essentially changed our name to Nova Labs. Our effort now is taking that same kind of incentive model that's powered by crypto and apply it to cellular networks. This is where we are today. It's super interesting. We have launched a service called Helium Mobile, and we've been in beta across the US for some time. We came out of beta in August, and we're now focused on Miami -Dade County in a specific city. Today, Paul, I'm excited to talk to you about our recent announcement of launching the Helium Mobile hotspot, which is a super easy to install, low -cost, people -powered cell tower, essentially, that is geared towards small businesses, restaurants, bars, hotels, et cetera, in Miami -Dade County. Our objective is somewhat similar to Airbnb, Uber, Lyft. We want to connect these Helium Mobile hotspots in these restaurants to Helium Mobile subscribers in that same vicinity. That's what we're up to. I was looking at the devices there on the page, very similar to what you see now if you think about hotspots that we see from AT &T, et cetera, that are out there. Explain the differences between how Helium hotspots would work versus what a traditional carrier like an AT &T or Verizon, because they have those same kinds of things that work directly off of regular cell towers in 5G. How does yours work differently? Yeah, I think first and foremost, ownership. When we talk about asking small businesses to really install these in their shops or in their businesses, they own it. They own this network. They're not participating in this. They're not renting it, releasing it, or subscribing. They actually own the Helium network. When we talk about people -powered cell towers, we're really talking about the fact that we've created this Helium Mobile hotspot, it's like 250 bucks, plug and play into your store, into your environment. Now, you're sharing your internet access with any Helium Mobile subscriber. For doing so, you earn a cryptocurrency called Mobile Token. That's your reward for sharing your internet. That piece right there means you actually own that cell tower. Noble Labs does not own it. Helium doesn't own it. You, business owner, you own and operate that. You are rewarded for being an owner in this network. That's, I think, the key distinction. Right. With 5G, obviously, most people know these as cell towers all populated around the land. These are essentially going to be hotspots that are connecting to those 5G towers within that network.
A highlight from 1223. $5 Helium Mobile Launch on Solana! INTERVIEW
"All right so today we're gonna dive into maybe some things I think you'll like around mobile and Web3 and you've probably heard us talk a little bit more about Helium Mobile over a variety of different shows. We're gonna break down a little bit more of detail around where Helium Mobile is today. This will be a good one. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in a Tech Path. Joining me from Helium Mobile, also Nova Labs, is Rachel Kimberling who is the Product Manager over there. Great to have you. Great to be here. All right so Rachel we've been covering the Helium Mobile project. We've had several of the Helium team on our show in many capacities and all things IoT and all that good stuff. So we're really excited to have you on to talk about mobile in general and some of the key things that you guys are doing. First of all can you give us kind of a update of where Helium Mobile is today? Sure so Helium Mobile just launched to GA launch last week so we're fresh out of beta as of last Tuesday and we are starting our GA off in Miami. So anyone in Miami can join the service. It's only five dollars a month for an unlimited talk text and data plan and then we're All right so Miami kind of a launch city. You've got this rolling out. When you look at just beta users right now on the platform what does that look like in terms of size currently? I don't have any numbers I can provide in like a specific sense but we're pretty happy with the growth right now and then just to clarify we're actually out of beta. So we started beta a couple months ago in early May and ran kind of a closed beta and then it is officially over as of last week so we're welcoming subscribers in for the full featured service and we'll continue to roll out other things but beta technically is final. Very cool. All right so we're showing kind of a coverage map right there as an example. Again for those who are not aware of Helium Mobile talk to us a little bit about how the technology works. I know there's a lot of relationship here obviously with T -Mobile but explain kind of the the interlocking of how this works for mobile and cellular service. Sure I'm just gonna kind of give you a rundown of what Helium Mobile really is offering subscribers overall and then we can kind of dive into the coverage aspect a little bit as well. So it really is a radically new type of carrier and it offers subscribers the ability to earn rewards, has a next -level privacy element and then of course has the ability to connect users to coverage built by people like you. And so that's really where the kind of dynamic coverage aspect of it comes in. The relationship between T -Mobile's nationwide 5G network and the Helium Mobile network as well. All right so I look at this and I think about you know the kind of devices we'll talk about some devices here in a second. Obviously Solana has the saga phone out we've had that you know and broken that down here on the show before. What do you guys see in terms of traditional mobile devices versus kind of the web 3 friendly devices as you know the take up in terms of the network itself? Are you seeing more web 3 focused devices or are you just getting a mix of everything? Definitely a mix of everything. I kind of what you would expect you see you know iPhone users, you see Samsung users, a variety of Android users and then you know saga is kind of included in there. We are running a partnership with Solana Mobile so saga users get 30 days of Helium Mobile service completely free of charge and then of course they'll also be included in that $5 unlimited plan as well. So regardless of whether they're in the Miami County Miami -Dade County area or not then saga users join but we're really excited about the partnership with saga and I mean we just think it's a good thing and I'm sure you'll agree that these different web 3 projects work together. Yeah for sure okay so we're actually our studios are here in in the Miami area so it'll be interesting to kind of see how this this rollout goes for you guys. Additionally when you look at just the carriers and you know there's a variety of carriers everybody is out there kind of has their own thing going and whether you're a T -Mobile customer or you're an AT &T or whatever how does this work with the ability to move outside of the of these mobile of these we'll call them the Helium Mobile markets how does that work with other carriers you might be kind of riding on some other carriers you know system how does that work with you guys? Yeah it actually it works pretty similarly so I would say the big differentiator for us or you look at a lot of other lower cost carriers like Mint Mobile for example they are running on the T -Mobile network and our users also do experience T -Mobile's nationwide 5G network when they're not within range of Helium Mobile network coverage but our goal here really is to grow that coverage so that we can provide a viable lower cost alternative to this market rather than solely relying on one of the three larger networks so really a viable alternative path for more affordable connectivity that's sustainable.

This is our 99th year off helping people in our community. Had their lives transformed and get back into business of just living and enjoying life. Good morning again. I'm Ron Brummett. I happen to be the president of the Miami rescue mission. Borrowed outreach centers and I've been here 30 years beginning in February, 1st was my 30th anniversary. Actually, I've been in the mission since 1990 which would make it 31 years, But I didn't start to become employees till February of 1991. Wow, 30 years. I can't believe it. I guess my age is Starting the show. But what a great great great time I've had here. What an honor and a blessing and has been to be a part of such a great organization that has such deep roots here in South Florida. Goes back decades after decades after decades and to see the many, many the thousands really literally thousands of people's lives, men, women and Children. I have come through our doors on various locations, meaty beside themselves, not sure of their future have given up on themselves. Family members were given up on them and then found hope and found a purpose in life. And you know, we are a Christian organization. We don't shy away from that. We believe that people can come to know the Lord. God through Jesus Christ. We don't force that on anyone, but that's who we are. That's our D n A. And I'd be false and I wouldn't be genuine if I try to shy away from that. We've been experiencing the blessings of the Lord for over nine decades, almost 10 decades, you know, one more year of the 100 Year celebration. And yet you don't have to believe that way to come in our doors to get help. We have volunteers from all walks of life. All faiths We've had people come through our doors that really have been atheist. Some have just been different types of religions, and we're not going to discriminate against that on race or create or anything. We just want to love people because God loves people and I do believe and I've seen this over and over and over that love never demand to change and anybody in our personal lives in a family lives, especially with people that have experienced homelessness, But love will produce a change. So when people come in the door, we accept them. Just as they are on many that come to us are just wearing the clothes on their back. They have nothing. The women that come to us many times they're fleeing domestic violence. And they've got a couple kids. Sometimes you're pregnant. When they show up. They have very little belongings were or where they can carry. They may have in the car. Maybe they don't have a car. They just hoofed it and was able to come to us our doors. But we've seen that people come will come to us like that. But it doesn't take long if they apply themselves and work on themselves and take advantage of all the classes and all the counseling and all the case, management, all the financial help and job readiness and job preparedness and how how to find it. Up on how to find a new, affordable place to stay. It is just a miracle and I am so grateful. I am very, very grateful. You know, some of you have heard my story before on the radio. But I, too, also was a homeless individual that walked the streets of Miami for 2.5 years, and it came in the center of men in Miami just out of the cold and needed something to eat and was able to make some very, very, very good decisions to stay there. And I would never imagine in 30 years. That I would become the president of this great organization and not only serves here in Miami Dade County but also in Broward County and has just rippled effect throughout our country and our nation. And so I am again. Very, very thankful. You know, I said that when I came in, I was hungry, and I was cold.
