A highlight from 124 - Sculpting Nature: The Legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted - Kirk R. Brown
"The Garden Question is a podcast for people that love designing, building, and growing smarter gardens that work. Listen in as we talk with successful garden designers, builders, and growers, discovering their stories along with how they think, work, and grow. This is your next step in creating a beautiful, year -round, environmentally connected, low -maintenance, and healthy, thriving outdoor space. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an expert, there will always be something inspiring when you listen to The Garden Question podcast. Hello, I'm your host, Craig McManus. It's been over 200 years since he was born. People still absorb his parks and public gardens in more than 5 ,000 communities across the North American continent. The goal is to give the common man in this new world the same opportunities to experience creation as any king in his private preserve in the Old World. Frederick Law Olmsted is prevalently pronounced the father of American landscape architecture. In this episode, Kurt R. Brown interprets Frederick Law Olmsted. Kurt is a member of the International Garden Communicators Hall of Fame. He is a green achiever being recognized with many industrial awards. He represented Joanne Kostecki Garden Design as a leader in the design bill industry. At America's oldest garden in Charleston, South Carolina, he worked as national outreach coordinator. He is the past president of GardenCom. In the U .S. and Canada, he's delivered hundreds of keynote addresses, guest lectures, teaching symposia, and certified instruction over the past quarter of a century. He's also known to interpret historic horticulturalists and international dignitaries as John Bartram, Frederick Law Olmsted, among many others. He still finds time to cultivate his own private display garden. Join him now as he unveils his views of Olmsted. This is Episode 124, Sculpturing Nature. The Legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted with Kurt R. Brown Interpreting, an encore presentation and remix of Episode 63. Mr. Olmsted, would you take us back to when you were 36 years old and tell us what was your most valuable mistake up to that point? I sometimes have problems remembering what happened yesterday. Remembering what happened when I was 36 takes me to a point in time where I felt that I would never wake up, that somehow whatever hope I had of being properly engaged in an adult employment was never going to occur. However, it was at a time when seemingly everything in the world that I had touched or attempted had turned to dross. With that, when you are at the bottom, looking up from the bottom of that big black pit that you feel yourselves in, God smiles sometimes. And when he smiles, he puts in front of you an opportunity that unless you'd been in that pit of despair, you wouldn't think was a positive. I went over the brink of bankruptcy with a publishing company that my father had financed to put me on my feet in the world of communicating, largely garden communicating. But in that day, when publishers have cash in the drawer and decide that it's better in their pockets and they skip town, I was left holding an empty bag. When my sanity was at risk, there were a group of friends, Dutch elders from the state of New York, who looked at me in my circumstance and they said, without much thinking about it, we have a job for you, sir. And this was from Washington Irving, whom you might have heard, James Hamilton, the Cooper Hewitt later, and David Dudley Field, among many, many others, they said in response to my question, what is this job all about? They said, we believe that from your practical training as an agriculturist, from all of your horticultural writings, from your talents and from your obvious character, I took them at their word on that, we believe you eminently qualified for the duties of the Office of Superintendent of the capital T, the Central Park of New York. They wanted me to be a crew leader of one of the largest public works projects that had been undertaken since the construction of the pyramids. They thought by giving me this job, it would put my feet under my own table and allow me to support the family that I had inherited and adopted after my brother's death. So you see, this is a laugh because being a construction foreman on a landscape project the size of Central Park allowed me into other rooms and gave me the ability to meet other people, most notably among them, Calvert Vox. Of course, from that participation, from that connection, from that wonderful start at 36, climbing out of the black pit and going on into the greater international world of garden design. That's how you find me, sir. From that point till now, you have to consider all of the other doors that opened, designing the country's first great urban and public park. It was a democratization of space. That's the most important aspect that we were driving. All of the big parks of the old world were private preserves, were aristocratic in their founding or country homes of the elite and money. They were not open to the general public. Here we were designing a space, an urban space of green that would allow people at all levels of income to rub elbows and participate in a great and refreshing space. Out of that, the other things that came to my table were the obvious connections of making plans for residential subdivisions. I was ultimately asked to design a world's fair. And in that regard, I was one of the few who designed a fair that actually made money. Mostly the cities in which the Olmsted partnership worked were green belts. It wasn't just one isolated urban jewel. They were a necklace. They were a green necklace surrounding all of the major cities in which we did work, involving and parkways park sides with garden views. And with all of that, the infrastructure that necessarily came along with the design was an increasing awareness of public health and sanitation. I was also involved at the beginning of the American Red Cross with standardizing field operations, with organizing national outreach and coordination, and with putting women in nursing wards. I was also there at the beginning in trying to inventory the natural resources of Yosemite, and that began the National Parks Movement. I also encouraged managed forestry. I was the first person here in this country to hire a forester to help develop plans for management of 137 ,000 acres in Biltmore, not less. Governor Pinchot, as he later came to be known, was the first man that held the post at the National Center where he managed the national parks and forests. I was always involved in garden communication. I was a syndicated New York Times columnist. I was an abolitionist. I believe strongly in the development of cemetery arboretum where families could mourn the death of their loved ones. And I was the first one to be recognized for the design implementation and successful development of riparian restoration using early sustainable practices, because overarching all of these individual jobs, I believe that environmental health was also humanities welfare. Eventually, many of the things that we did for the first time or did for all of those who came later to ask us to repeat our success, eventually we codified most of the things that we were doing, and we were there at the beginning writing a syllabus for the American Society of Landscape Architects when Harvard graduated its first class. That's the beginning. And through it, we've tried to reach a point that you can look back and decide whether what we do, whether creating public parks, whether recognizing national parks, whether doing things as a green infrastructural implementation, whether that is garden design, whether it is landscape design or whether it is landscape architecture. I have certainly left the responsibility of that to all of the generations that came since the implementation of Central Park of New York. So let's look at the Central Park of New York. Where you started to turn around was when you got the job as superintendent. How did you make the jump from superintendent to being credited as the designer and builder of Central Park? I would never accept that title. I was mentored by a man far greater than I. His name was Andrew Jackson Downing, and he lived upstate New York. The concept of Central Park and the concept of public urban horticulture was his. He was the first man here in this country to successfully write that there was a model to be offered and followed in the development of landscape practices. He wrote and published a book in 1841 called A Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening. It was his idea in the 1840s what he called the picturesque landscape has great advantage for the common man. The raw materials of grass, water, and woods are at once appropriated with so much effect and so little art in the picturesque mode, and the charm is so great. You'll recall that 200 years ago I was born. It was also the same year that Napoleon died. There was a great turning where people decided it was no longer appropriate to design landscapes in the French style. The formality of trimmed hedges and topiaries and the development of boxed and hothouse grown examples of tropical horticulture. What they wanted was a natural or romantic view of the world. Downing's response to that was his development of the picturesque here in North America. So while the international turned on what was their term called romanticism, Downing's belief was that it needed to be picturesque. He brought a man from England who was just spectacular with the development of line and architectural standards. His name was Calvert Vaux. So we had Calvert Vaux doing all of the housing plans for Downing's models. Downing began a magazine called The Horticulturist where he promoted all of the values of horticulture and agriculture, how to design, creating a design for living. He encouraged all of us to plant spacious parks in our cities and unclose their gates as wide as the gates of mourning to the whole people. I was a very small part of the initial concept when they were looking for the construction foreman. Downing had been killed in a steamboat accident on the Hudson River. While they were searching for the plan, they had more than 30 proposals submitted for what Central Park was to become. Calvert Vaux had a concept and he asked me if I would join him in its presentation to the committee. My thought was that a proper city park should provide escape from the city. We solved all of the inherent problems of the design so that nature of the space would be one of unending vistas of green and the lawns would seem to go on forever. With Vaux asking me to be a partner, at that low point in my life, my answer was an unqualified sir, this partnership is on. We called our design and our proposal Greensward. I would still think of it with that name. Of course, everyone else has just taken it to heart and made it Central Park. I was 36 years old. I had a neighbor in Hartford as I was growing up and then on the speaking circuit in later years and Mark Twain, you might know him as Samuel Longhorns Clemens, said that age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. What were some of the challenges in the implementation of the Central Park design? The money was coming from Albany and the old Dutch money that still remained somewhat in the Tammany Hall organization of downtown New York politics would get their hands on the money before it would feed through to enrich, encourage and grow the project. The old Dutch burghers wanted an honest man as the paymaster. And so at the end of those long days, I was the man handing money to the day workers with cash on the barrelhead, paying them for moving the hundreds and hundreds and millions of cubic yards of soil that was transported to do those effortless looking hills and dales and rambles that became Central Park. The park itself is a democratic development of the highest significance. We can never, never, ever forget that public urban horticulture is that. It is the extreme expression of democracy. And simply put, we were looking at the three grand elements of Downing's definition of picturesque or pastoral landscape. Those three elements remain the same today as they were then. The symphony of grass, water and woods joined together with many, many artificial tricks of the trade into one uncommon space. At Central Park, we also added what would be in our concept the only sculptural element that was to be included in the final design. That was the Bethesda Fountain. With Bethesda, we wanted it to be similar to the quote from the New Testament, John chapter 5, verse 4, for an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water. Whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water was made well of whatever disease he had. This becoming a place of union for all of those tired and poor of the city who would otherwise not have a green space with good public water. It became that, certainly, after the Civil War and even up until these days when the symbol of the fountain, that angel of the waters that was given to the first woman who ever won a sculptural commission in the city of New York later to become angels in America. Through all of this, that symbol of health and well -being has been guarded through all of its artistic progress. What other, as you referred to them as, tricks in the landscape design were implemented in the park? There were requirements, as most things are. They had to have cross streets, but we didn't want to interrupt the view of green. We sunk the roads, and it was unique in its concept because all of those cross streets that were mandated in the design brief were not seen once you were at grade or at the park level, so that all of the sheep's meadow and the grand lawns of Central Park were seemingly undivided and the cars would travel underneath that layer. The other thing was fresh water. The 800 and some odd acres of Central Park had to include what was an existing reservoir. The walk around the reservoir had to be included in the acreage, and to do that, we made the north part of the park into what I called a ramble. If you take the word ramble, it puts me back into my childhood. I had rides with my father and mother in the woods and fields. In those days, we were in search of the, well, the picturesque. Any man then who sees things differently than the mass of ordinary men is classified as one who has a defect of the eye and a defect of the brain. Who would think that you could move mountains to create a distant view while the cross -street thoroughfares of a major urban environment would traffic unwitnessed with the calm and peace of nature around you? In later years, it gave the common man access to a broader world. In the early days, when the park first opened, what we discovered is that entrepreneurs of the city would get a chance to meet and greet people who were not of or in their class, and everyone came together on the lake to ice skate. That had never been accomplished in an urban environment before, where the lowest and the highest achieved self -standing stature over a pair of ice skates. What other ways did you incorporate the blending of the classes? There were several types of road. There were access roads for tradesmen, and then there were the carriage trade highways that would tour the park and allowed for another whole type of merchant in the hiring of horse -drawn vehicles that are still there, conveying tourists into and around the park today because of the way the layout was designed. We also included space for a zoo and for ornamental horticulture in the display of flowers. It also gave space for the Metropolitan Museum, and then as you'll see over all these years, many, many other opportunities for people to regard themselves highly by installing other busts and portraiture. There's Cleopatra's Needle, which was that large obelisk that came from Egypt that has its own following up above the museum. It's all part and parcel of creating the ambiance of nature in an artificial way. You had some experiences of your own in a walking tour in England. How did those influence your view of design, and how did you take those and implement them in the park? The only difference is that in England, what we were looking at in the assortment of grass, water, and woods was that most of the developed areas were done for members of the aristocracy. They were country homes at the time. Previous generation, they were landscapes designed and achieved by Lancelot. They called him Capability Brown. Those assortments of grass, water, and woods were no different in concept, really, for the public parks that we were designing. The only difference is that in public funded projects, they had access for people of all social classes. There was no admission, no gate. I've heard it said you become who you hang out with. Tell us about some of the people that you have surrounded yourself with.

A highlight from Bible Study 101: How God Uses His Word to Speak to Us
"This week and next week, I am doing reruns of two of our more popular series, and these are two weeks out of the longer Spiritual Discipline series, which lasted 12 weeks. And while I think there's a lot of value in each of those weeks, I wanted to spotlight these two weeks because I think it's going to be a good transition for us as we head back Bible into study content for this fall. And so this week, we're going to be talking about Bible study. What is it? Why should we do it? How is it different than a devotional? How does God talk to us through His Word? We're going to be talking about all of those things, and I believe that this will be a good refresher for you if you've already listened to the content, or if this is new information for you, it will help set you up for good study habits this fall.

A highlight from 1216. Macro Market Crash Potential w/ Darius Dale
"All right, so today we're going to dive into the market status, take a little bit of deeper dive into some of the implications of what's happening currently, but also take a look at more of a long -term perspective. Typically we like to do that with guests that have, you know, kind of these macro outlooks. I think you guys will like this one. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back into Tech Path. I want to get into it today with Darius Dale. If you guys are not aware, Darius Dale has been on our show many times. He's the CEO and founder of We're at 42 Macro. KTF you back? Always a pleasure to be here, Paul. Thanks for having me back. Appreciate you. All right, so let's listen. If you guys have not had a chance to catch Darius before on our show, what I would do is invite you guys to jump over to his website, which is just 42macro .com. You can learn a little bit more about what they do in terms of their investment strategy and a lot of their own services. So check that out. We always love to plug our guests out there. So go visit to find out. And he's very active on Twitter as well. So check him out. All right. So I want to get into a few things here, Darius, with you. And that is when you look at the current status of major investment, we'll call them players in the market. You know, whether you look at institutional capital or just high net worth individuals, a lot of people are starting to look at when is the right time to reenter the market. You also have scenarios like this playing out right now. You've got Buffett, Burry, everybody kind of in this position of, hey, we think there's going to be this major crash. We are going to look at stepping away from the market and waiting for that right time. You look at that and the current situation of what's happening today. What are you seeing out there within your own data? So again, thanks for having me. So in terms of like where institutional investors are positioned, we have a litany of clients around the world who are all institutional asset managers, insurance funds, pension funds, et cetera, from my days on Global Wall Street, hence the suit in that photo. So I'm pretty plugged in in understanding kind of where the institutional flows are. And it's pretty clear that over the last sort of six to eight weeks, you've seen a little bit of an upside capitulation into the equity market that we're obviously correcting from now. But one thing I think we're, over the last kind of three to four weeks, particularly since the Bank of Japan amended its yield curve control framework in late July, we've backed in in terms of treasury curve duration. And this is not just a treasury market phenomenon. This is happening globally across global sovereign debt curves. I mean, if you look at some of the moves we've seen just week over week in the treasury market, you're talking about 10 -year yields up 25 basis points, UK gilt market 10 -year yields up 30 basis points, German boon up 10 basis points, et cetera, et cetera. So you're seeing a lot of this return of bond market volatility. And I'll tell you, Paul, it's happening for two factors, one, economic resiliency in the US and Japan, which we can unpack, two, the inflation resiliency in the eurozone in the UK, which we can unpack, but all those factors are combining to create a little bit more bond market volatility, which the markets are feeling right now. Nasdaq had a little bit of a lift today, almost 3%, also playing into that. But OK, so a couple of things. We've had a chance to talk with a few other crypto analysts outside of the overall market side of things. And they have different viewpoints on where this current market sets. If you look at some of the global factors that are playing out right now, let's take a look at China and the EU in general, because those are kind of polar opposite stories. Talk to me about which one has the most potential impact of what's happening here in the US. Yeah, so I would argue in terms of what's happening here in the US, it's very clearly the sticky inflation story that we continue to see in Europe. If you look at core inflation in the eurozone coming in sticky at 5 .5 % in the most recent month, you have core inflation in the UK coming in sticky at 6 .9 % in the recent months, surprising consensus estimates to the upside. That's creating bond market volatility and expectations for not only more tightening in those localities, the ECB, Bank of England, but actually delaying the rate cuts that are currently priced into forward curves as well. And that's obviously a spillover impact here. But I would argue the number one thing that's causing problems in the US equity market in the recent weeks is the resiliency of the US economy, because ultimately it's pushing out expectation the that the Fed is going to be able to cut interest rates any time soon. Interesting. Summary of Fed minutes right here. Most officials still see the need for higher rates. This came from COBEEC letter. Officials worry a little bit about over tightening. They see kind of tighter bank credit conditions. We've kind of expected some of that. No recession in 2023. We still are getting that indicator from the Fed. And then the one that I'm still most concerned about is the CRE situation, commercial real estate, around both the value in its current situation. I've been talking to a lot of real estate people here in Miami, and Miami is typically one of those markets that rarely gets affected by what happens here in the US and abroad outside of maybe Los Angeles or even New York. But now Miami also starting to feel the pinch around CRE. With all of those things and based on the Fed minutes, where do you feel like this is coming out of the Fed itself? Yeah. So in our view, we think by the end of the year, we're going to be having a different discussion around inflation. Recall that inflation has been trending lower really since the fall of last year in a pretty spectacular, albeit immaculate way. We've been calling it immaculate disinflation amongst Wall Street participants because we understand that there's really no time series history or evidence to suggest that we should be seeing these types of positive inflation outcomes ahead or not in a recession. Typically what happens is you get the breakdown in inflation several quarter or a couple of two to three quarters after the recession begins, and so clearly we're not in recession. The economy seems to be booming, certainly being resilient. And so from the perspective of the Fed, I think by the end of the year, you're going to have a couple of things happen. Right now we have zero incremental rate hikes priced into the Treasury curve. I think that's wrong. By the end of the year, it's probably likely that we're going to start to see inflation stabilize at levels that are unpalatable to the Fed relative to their price stability mandate. And actually, let me take that back. I don't want to be too specific about December 31st, but I do believe in the next three to six months, the inflation narrative will evolve from immaculate disinflation to sticky inflation because the economy is showing resiliency and that's persistent. So you feel like it's still going to hold. We're not going to see a full drop off of inflation to where Chair Powell is wanting to go to a 2%. This gets back into the theories many people have talked about, 3 % more likely as a potential. What do you think is going to be that new target zone? Do you think the Fed is just going to do everything they can to still move to that 2 % target zone? Or do you think they're going to have some sort of acceptance slightly above that? You can make the case that they already kind of are. Their reaction function is certainly downshifted to a one that's a little bit more asymmetric or not asymmetric, a little bit more symmetric in terms of responding to shocks of growth, shocks of inflation. Clearly inflation is still in the driver's seat, but it's no longer in the driver's seat the way that it was six months ago when they were hiking 75 basis points at a time. To answer your question, I do believe, so the one thing, this thing about inflation cyclically and secularly, real quick on the cyclical side, we still will see that there's a considerable amount of downside momentum in the time series, particularly when you analyze inflation through the lens of the sequentials like three month annualized, six month annualized. It's going to drag the year over year time series for things like core PCE, super core PCE, trim mean PCE inflation down over the next few months. We suspect that will probably conclude in the next three to six months. From a secular perspective, this is where I think it really gets interesting and why we've been appropriate to be bearish on bonds all year. The reality is there's a couple of things. One, the Fed's going to have to change its 2 % inflation target. We run a very sophisticated dynamic factor model that we've been presenting all across global Wall Street for the past few years, just sort of describing all the different changes that have happened in the global economy from a DSGE perspective that suggests the underlying trend of core PCE inflation has migrated from around 1 .6 % to 3%. Now, that doesn't sound like a lot if you're talking about cryptocurrency or the use to explosive logarithmic moves, but the reality is the Fed has a 2 % inflation target. If the trend in the time series is persistently above two, it means they're going to consistently be leaning against the investors, consistently be leaning against the economy, and I don't think that's politically palatable in a fourth turning society. I think they're going to have to revise their inflation target because ultimately they're going to be the ones responsible for gobbling up the $1 .5 to $2 trillion budget deficits we can see as far as the eye can see.

A highlight from The Empowerment of the Holy Spirit on Short-Term Mission Trips
"Life Audio. You know, I spent many years as a children's pastor, and I have done children's ministry, both within the local church, within the local context, and globally. And this week, when I traveled to the Dominican Republic, there were two testimonies that happened with children that I think are really going to bless you. And I think sometimes we forget about the fact that there is no junior version of the Holy Spirit, that when he pours himself out, he does it upon all flesh, is what the scripture says. And it's not that kids get a junior version of him, they get all of him. And so when we hear testimonies of how God works through children, it can be such an encouragement to us. I pray this episode blesses you. Stay tuned. Hey everybody, I'm Dale. And I'm Tarik. We're hosts of the Kinos Project podcast. Where we help you tackle ancient Christian truths in everyday settings.

A highlight from THE HASH: SEC to Challenge XRP Ruling in Case Against Ripple; FTX Claps Back at Creditors
"Hey there. Welcome to Coindesk TV. Welcome to The Hash. It's the best show on Coindesk TV in my humble opinion. I'm Zach Seward. We're joined by Jen Senassi, Will Foxley. They both agree. Best show. Good stuff. That's a fighting word, Zach. What are you talking about? What are you talking about? Is that a compliment or a diss for me? It's a compliment. All of them. We're this, all of us together. We bring so much. You know, Jen, you have multiple shows. I'm not throwing shade at the other show, but this show. Sorry, Lawrence. This is what it's really all about. I have to agree. There you go. Love that. All right. It's pretty good. Enough hemming and hawing. My bad, folks. Let's get to the stories of the day. Will, lead us off. What's up? Okay. Let's go to FTX land and talk about bigger problems. This is a tough one. Creditors and debtors are fighting it out after a draft reorganization plan was filed by John J. Ray III, the new CEO of FTX and the FTX estate. Of course, they're going through this chapter 11 process, which is going to be drawn out for quite some time. They've been at it for well over six months at this point, and they've been racking up a lot of fees. The creditors here are not super happy with the handling of a lot of different aspects of the estate. For one point, they even issued that, Hey, why is the treasury not being put into UST bills so we can earn a yield on top of all the money that is waiting to be distributed to FTX creditors? The estate has some thoughts about that. There's some back and forth here. At the end of the day, I think it's just two groups arguing over a vast sum of money that is owed from one party to another. This is a story as old as time itself, right? Like chapter 11 back and forth. Jen, I got to throw it to you. What's your take on this one? I'm imagining when I read the story, I imagined FTX's new management, like in suits, you know, all the lawyers that are making all that money that we spoke about way back when trying to talk to like a bunch of degents who won't turn their zoom cameras on and just getting absolutely frustrated. There are some real great nuggets in here if you read the footnotes and the whole thing, but I think it makes sense. Like FTX's management needs to be conservative. They need to look at this whole thing holistically. I think this is one group, it's the group of unsecured creditors who are saying, no, you need to do X, Y, and Z. I think they were suggesting putting some of the money into long -term crypto holdings. They're talking about US treasury bonds. And, you know, I think that's a little bit risky when you're looking at getting as much money as possible back to all of the people who are owed money in this. There's a lot to dive into here, but Zach, I want to get you in first before we dive down that rabbit hole. I do like the part where it's just like, we're going to put it all on red and we are going to weight it back in one spin, baby, let's do this thing. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's like that meme. It's like that, I don't know, I forget which movie it is, but the Las Vegas meme where everyone's like gathered around the craps table, like various disfigured injuries, and you often see various sort of crypto figureheads placed into that meme. And you can imagine the degens on the creditors side being like, yes, we can do it this way. But really, it's just a tug of war between two parties seeking to establish power over these proceedings, right? I think this is very much in response. This is kind of John J. Ray kind of clapping back and saying, hey, creditors like pipe down. I know you said this thing where you want control over who's making these decisions. I think that was the previous week that the creditors committee came out and cast a little shade on how the estate is handling things. And hey, J. J. Ray the third is going to clap back. If we know anything, this man does not mess around. We've seen this guy come out firing time and time again. He's ready to roll sleeves and put the fisticuffs up on this one. So interesting to see, again, the war of where it's escalating between these parties who see different priorities and how this should be handled. And this is some tension sort of spilling out into the public sphere. Will, what do you think? Three bits and pieces here. Maybe it's context. Maybe it's just kind of fun facts. I just want to bring up one. There's this debate over should FTX reboot FTX 2 .0. As it were, John J. Ray the third and the FTX estate has hinted at it and maybe even like suggested that they might move forward with it. Certainly a lot of creditors and debtors who want this to occur because they think this is possibly the only way for them to see more of their money, typically in chapter 11, and we see like maybe like 11 cents on the dollar get paid out. Eventually, I mean, Gox Celsius, there's so many different stories in the past where we haven't really seen the money go back completely. Another few thoughts on this is one, the debtors have issued in this note, a complaint that they have not met with the estate at all. And it seems to be some frustration there because the FTX estate is spending so much, like millions of dollars, like the hourly cost for these things is incredible. Yet they're unwilling to meet with the debtors in this situation, which strikes me as a little bit odd, but maybe they just don't want to deal with it. And I suppose if I was in their situation, making a lot of money, I wouldn't answer the phone either. I don't know. Jen, I have to add this to Tidbit and they are, I guess, looking for solutions if we want to get the unsecured creditors some points here. They the reason that they were suggesting that FTX look into short term treasuries was to help offset that 330 million dollar legal fee bill that we spoke about on the show, I think it was months ago now. So they are coming with solutions. You got to give them some credit there. Zach, I'm going to hand it off to you for last words. This story will never die. This is the story that will never die. Maybe we can talk about it 10 years from now, if we're lucky. Oh, wow. It's kind of like all the other FTX stories too, right? Whether it's like got new information about Allison or Sam or whatever, it's like two different tracks for the same story. Yeah, you got to have, you know, like the, you got the A storyline and the B storyline. You got the suits sparring over various procedural updates. And then you, you got the juice over here. You got the, you got the Machiavellian and you got the personal drama, you got all sorts of stuff, all sorts of stuff. Maybe, maybe when Netflix finally makes the documentary, they'll use a clip from the hash. That is my dream. We have been in a book about this. Yes. Shout out to Brady Dale. Now Avaxios, go get that book. All right. That's it. We're going to change gears. We are going to go to an update on the Ripple case. Now, last month there was a big judgment from a federal judge saying that certain sales of XRP satisfied securities transactions. Others did not. And now the SEC is appealing or is asking for permission to appeal that judgment a in major case that has been closely watched in the crypto world. When this judgment was first issued by federal judge Annalisa Torres, who was seen as a partial victory for Ripple and a partial victory for the industry writ large. So clearly, the SEC is advancing its case that maybe those programmatic sales also qualify as securities transactions and they're asking for a certain type of appeal on the matter. Jen, I'm going to throw it to you. Everyone was super duper bullish about this decision from Judge Torres, and now they may have to take it back to appeal. How does that sort of change our understanding of what happened here? This is another story that just will keep going on, I think, until the end of time. It feels like we've been following the Ripple case. It did feel like there was like a moment where this entire industry took a breath and thought, wow, this this is a small win for us. It's a small win. It gives us a little bit of clarity, a little bit of direction. We, of course, have seen since then Coinbase has referenced this partial win in some of their filings against the SEC. And now I just feel down in the dumps again. Of course, there's still a trial pending here. And now we have the SEC filing this appeal, which I think everyone expected. The SEC said that they were going to file the appeal. The part that I'm going to watch and that I think is kind of interesting is Judge Torres said Ripple did not break the law when the XRP token was sold on public exchanges because purchasers had no reasonable expectation of profit based on Ripple's efforts. I just wonder if we're going to see Ripple's efforts come to light here compared to the price of the XRP token. Ripple has made a lot of announcements about acquisitions, new projects, new products, and if that is going to be some swaying information in this case, because I think that it's not a far cry to draw a parallel between Ripple's new project and the price of the XRP token, even though Ripple has definitely distanced themselves from that narrative. Will, what do you think? Yeah, classic Ripple. It's not our token. We just found it out there. I don't know. It was in the wild somehow. Going back to like the lawsuit here in the case between SEC and Ripple Labs, the programmatic selling part that Zach brought up, this is the thing that confused a lot of people, and there was definitely a lot of lawyer opinions on this, including some op -eds I've written on Coindesk, so definitely go check those out for an expert's opinion. From a layman's opinion, just looking at this, it seemed a little odd that you could have this broken up into two different tranches, right, where we could sell to VCs, we could sell to banks, we could sell to institutions, and that's not okay. But if we sell it onto an exchange where there's just retail clients and they're not really having an investment contract, they're just purchasing, I guess, like a commodity in this case or something like that, then it's okay. And it just didn't make sense to a lot of people when they first saw this. I only saw a few lawyers who were looking at that and were like, oh, yeah, that checks out. I think it also, if it stands, sort of cuts at the heart of how a lot of crypto lab companies or foundations do their sales of assets when they create them, or quote unquote assets. Oftentimes we see private rounds where initially there's like a premium uncreated, and then they divvy up that pre -mine to investors, to insiders, to the foundation, to the early team, and then they do a huge sale to the retail, either through like an airdrop or listing an exchange elsewhere later on. So let's take a world coin, for example, they did this, right, where they gave some to early investors, they gave some to the team, and then they gave a ton to market makers to be able to keep the price of the token pretty steady. And under this ruling from this judge, a lot of that would be broken, right? Like, would you be able to give a token to market makers to even loan it out so you could have a price? I don't know if you can do that anymore under this. It seems like you could only really sell it to retail. That seems odd to me, it seems like it's going to change. And I don't think it's a surprise to anyone to see the SEC go against this, or at least try to challenge it. The outcomes from it could have huge repercussions for how everyone is looking at the token market. Zach? Yeah, my understanding is that a lot of these sales sort of date back before established best practices were set up right for a lot of these token distributions, right. So this is this is from an era in which a lot of the regulatory kosher practices were being embraced. So I think a lot of this space has evolved. And I think there is a question as to whether or not this will impact sort of the current understanding of how tokens get distributed to early investors. I think the SEC had to appeal this one because, Will, as you mentioned, it really undercuts Gary Gensler's argument that almost everything except for Bitcoin basically is a digital asset security. Now, I mean, I think my understanding of the ruling was that it's not really the securities, it's not really the assets themselves, it's which type of transactions they're involved in. And that was sort of the fine line that Judge Torres was trying to distinguish here, right? You know, similarly to how in the Howey test, it stemmed over an orange grove in Florida, right? The oranges themselves aren't necessarily securities, but if they are involved in a securities transaction, then they meet certain requirements in terms of disclosure and other things that need to happen, right? So the understanding, at least on the industry side, was, hey, the assets are just like the oranges. They aren't inherently securities, but if they're in a securities transaction, then certain rules will apply. And that's what Judge Torres was trying to articulate, whereas Gary Gensler has been trying to say, these things are securities, they look like a security, they walk like a security, they quack like a duck, I don't know what I'm saying anymore. But he was saying that that is always the case with these things, that they are by nature of their existence are our securities. Whereas the judge is saying, no, no, we need to look at the specifics of the transactions in which they're involved. So a lot of people, I think, within the industry specifically saw that as a pretty reasonable explanation of how it can be both at the same time, a security and not a security. And now I think the SEC is at least taking another shot at advancing their case here, such that other claims relating to other assets can be supported. But yeah, I mean, this is I think, I think a lot of lawyers, this was definitely the thing where a lot of lawyers on crypto Twitter were sort of placing their bets in terms of what would happen. Some were more cautious that an appeal would would occur. Others were indicating that there would likely not be an appeal here. Now we see with this particular type of appeal that the SEC is going to have this one looked at again, under video review, but who knows? There's a new social marketplace on the block and it's called Calixi. The platform hopes to empower content creators to build personal economies and interact directly with their fans. Joining us now to discuss is Calixi CEO and co -founder Solos Sisay and co -founder and NBA star Spencer Dinwiddie. Good afternoon to you both or good morning. I don't know where everyone is. Good morning. Good afternoon. Good evening. Good morning. All right. Let's let's talk about the launch of this. It's been in beta for a while. It's now officially launched on yesterday's show. We spoke about Grimes coming out in the media and saying she actually made more money from her NFTs than her music career. Talk to us about the experience that creators can have on the app. As we look at monetization of the individual holistically, I think you're going to get some of those familiar features that you see from like in OnlyFans, et cetera. People being able to message, video chat, and then Calixi isn't very unique in the fact that they can create individual experiences. Like I have like a jump shot tutorial, things of that nature. But yes, it's all about monetization of oneself. Also, you can post your NFTs, et cetera. We have Web3WAD in there running on Hedera. But yeah, I mean, it's about monetization. So let me ask this one to you. This has been a long time coming for you guys, right? This project, I think you've been working on it for three years. Talk to me about what it means to get this fully launched today and what you learned over that process of cobbling this thing together over those three years.
A highlight from (PART 2) Finding Our Identity in Christ as Mothers with Special Guest Alli Worthington (Part 2)
"Life Audio. Today's episode is a continuation of my discussion with Allie Worthington about finding our identity in Christ as mothers, and I chose to do it in the month of August because for many of us as moms, we're faced with a lot of changes in the next couple of weeks. Are kids going back to school, perhaps going to kindergarten for the first time, or like myself and our family, we have a student going away to college that means she won't live in our home for the rest of this year. And so I think for many of us, like I said yesterday, we tend to find our identity as mothers in our children, and instead we need our focus to be finding our identity in Christ.

Are We Now a Banana Republic?
"This is the kind of stuff that happens in these banana republics. And I don't mean to pick on Brazil. So if anyone's from Brazil, I apologize in advance, but let's face it in Brazil, like everyone goes to jail. It's in the government. I mean, think about Lula, he went to Dale. Of course, now he's president again, go figure Dilma Rousseff didn't she go to jail as well. This is not the United States of America. I don't love the story. I don't even like to say the words stormy Daniels, but they're alleging, of course, that he paid her off in this kind of hush hush money scheme. And that therefore is illegal. And then he lied about it, and maybe used campaign funds, et cetera, et cetera. This is Alvin Bragg, who's alleging all this. He is the liberal prosecutor. There are the DA in New York City whose campaign actually was funded to the tune of a $1 million by a liberal group called color of change, political action group, which actually is in part funded by George Soros. So there's a lot of blue money here behind this. And the Democrats wanted this, right? They haven't given up. They think that this motivates their base, but I get news for them. You know what this is going to do? This is actually going to help Donald Trump immensely. Immensely, because no one wants to see a former president. I'm sorry. You know what? When I see the video of Joe Biden falling on the stairs of Air Force One, I don't like it. I actually cringe, I don't like Joe Biden's policies as you well know. I don't think he's a very good president, but the last thing I want to see is him falling on the stairs over and over again. I don't like that because you know what that to me reflects on our country.

Should you get a copy right. I would recommend if you brand new to the business.

"You're just adding to the noise. So i wanted to kind of get that one out the way that was always been a misunderstanding of heard. Some people say well it's list therefore i can copy it Yeah you can copy list. Should you I'd say not all right moving on to the next prompt here when self published when to self publish. Here's a good one when to self publish. When you're ready literally if you wanted to publish a book write the second you could do it. Let's just say you're like you know. I've got this one page poetry. This poem that. I want to publish. I want to publish this right now. You can do it right now. Oh you don't wanna do it now. You will either tomorrow do it. There's a lot of times that people get hung up on this little small detail in this small detail is. Should i publish monday. Sean publish on the twos. I hear published on a saturday and i say my prayers and i blow out my birthday candles. Something magical is going to happen. Look i just when it comes to self publishing powell shit win is right and when it's right that means that you've taken the time to start the hype train. Build awareness about your launch set a launch date continue building awareness until that launch date comes. And then you're ready to go now if you're the type of person you're like that's too much work for me. Dale no totally cool just published button because you publishing on a monday with no marketing and promotion or any buildup is going to be the same thing as you're doing it on tuesday or wednesday or thursday so on and so forth now. Some people can make the argument that most people are going to be online and most active between tuesday wednesday thursday. But that doesn't always apply especially to specific niches. So when it comes to when you're gonna do it do it when it's right so next one here Copyright win self publishing right so this one's great one when it comes to copywriting believe it or not he kinda got an amused quotes on this one. A poor man's copyright when you do your very first keystroke or you write your very first word in that notebook. Okay that is your intellectual property. No one can come in between you and that property unless you have something contractually binding and your say writing it on your employer's time or something like that you have general copyright now. The problem comes in that if someone steals your ip that they say plagiarize your book. You're obviously going to be mad. You're gonna wanna do litigation. You're gonna want to take him to court. Sue probably get your money back all that type of thing or even stop them from using your work. Now you're probably saying. But i got the copyright. I've got a virtual time stamp over on my microsoft word document so all well and good but once you get into court they want you to have roof of copyright. So this is where you're going to need to reach out to your local registration Regional she's me. So for instance here it's copyright.

"In it but the fact of the matter is you can technically published a book for free. Should you That that's certainly debatable. I wouldn't recommend it so generally speaking. You're going to need to look at the niche that you're in and you need to be very realistic looking at that okay. Can i be able to make a cover like that. If you can make a cover like that fantastic you can save some money. But in most instances. You're probably not Well versed in photoshop or book cover design or typography which is huge. Because just because you can get a free cover on cambe or done something in doesn't necessarily it's going to be the best most representative model. That's where you're gonna wanna hire out that so that way. You don't miss out on the opportunity to attract more readers and keep them coming back and purchasing more. So what does self publishing costs be zero dollars. It can be as much as say a thousand two thousand ten thousand dollars. It just depends on what you discretionary budget is and your time in what you're willing to kind of put into it all. Righty what is self publishing school. So answer this one ever so briefly here so publishing school is actually a company that is run and owned by chandler bolt chandler and i are kind of quaint. I actually got the chance to hang out with them year before last out in venice beach a tremendous guy. It is a huge company. I will give you a fair warning and that when you go and you get something free from them or you're going to say by one of their products. I guarantee you you'll be down sold you'll be up sold side sold. They're going to keep trying to sell you some stuff if you are completely like whoa. Whoa whoa. I hate being sold on self publishing schools. Probably not gonna be your jam however there have been many people that have enjoyed it and there are plenty of people that really stand behind it. Have i you self publishing school no That was not one of the courses that i started out with so by the time that i had learn all that i wanted to sell public.

Run by andy authors four the authors and they have something that's completely free for everybody to use it's called the ally watchdog service and essentially go through and they look at specific businesses.

"The value of the review of a book first of all it aids in third party credibility having somebody else say hey. This book is great is a way that browsing customers or potential readers are going to be a little more susceptible or a little more willing to first of all. Purchase your book or even more so. Read your book also. Getting reviews helps out with marketing. Because you can go out. And say hey. My book is amazing. But somebody else says that. Your book was amazing. Can grab a little quote. Their fair use folks. We go to share that on out there and say hey this is. This book is great. Says i dunno engelbert humperdinck that whoever might be was probably not a great example. And there's also another theory when it comes to reviews it also helps out in search engine optimization because by having even more data on your product page or put with your book online it will generate more traffic and more discover ability now again. That's a theory especially over on the amazon platform. So now we've gotten the reviews part out the way. What about editorials book reviews. What the heck are those. Is you hear this quite often. Some people are like well. There's no. I don't know anybody newspaper. I don't know an editor. How am i supposed to do this. No contra independent book review summarizes at best when they say this i'm going to read it verbatim. An editorial book review is unbiased. Reader focused review of your published or soon to be published book often used by publishers on marketing. Material book covers posters and on the editorial reviews section on their amazon sales page that lasts parts a really nice one in. We're gonna put a pin in that because we would come back to that probably towards the end so what is an editorial review like this varies per platform say that ten times fast varies per platform and it really depends on what they offer most instances and aditorial review with specific service sites. They tend to have more discerning readers and people that are going to give you a more detailed review places like qurqus in union square review have readers who picked every last detail about your book. Apart that includes cover design the ad. Copy ak your book description. Your titled choice content everything. It's very very detailed. The nice thing about a to'real refuses. They make him really good long. They're not gonna be like your normal amazon book reviewers like this was a great book review. I gave it to my grandmother. I loved it that type of review just doesn't really cut the mustard when it comes to third party credibility you really need someone who says precisely what this book is in why they enjoyed it. Or maybe why they didn't enjoy it and then with that at a tory review. You're able to kind of have some information that you can use his marketing collateral in. Put that out there and get it to where people potentially by more now. There are some other forms of editorial reviews that are not as professionals. Let's say as qurqus or a union square review. I'm not gonna point any figures one specific but let's just say that A blogger posts a review about your book on their website. Technically that's an editorial review is. It's an outside source. Maybe some unused that blogger as an expert of some sorts of that definitely qualifies as editorial review. All right so you probably saying yourself. It's all well and good dale. What's the cost is a no. This is going to be getting to glad that you said this. They'll stick around folks. Don't listen to the like the the. Oh i heard the number how much it's gonna cost and just to now because they're going to share with you how you can be able to select what's right and what's wrong. You most times editorial reviews the cost as little as fifty dollars to as much as five hundred seventy five dollars or even more depending on how much you're going gonna be buying as far as the quantity goes to be clear when you get an editorial review that usually does not consist of them doing the review and posting it on amazon. No no no. No no no. Because that's buying reviews. Its getting to get against terms of service over on amazon. So they don't do that. It's okay. i think you understood that though Editorial reviews will be simply something that they're going to share on their website maybe to the email list maybe to their youtube channel so on and so forth. You're just able to take the editorial review and place it where you would like a few of them on top my head here. I'm going to kind of go through. Some is not an exhaustive list. But i want to kind of give you an example. Reader's favourite k. Probably not my favorite site no pun intended when it comes to buying editorial reviews but they do offer a free editorial review that you can get through them really nice score to reader's favourite.

"The following is in the morning gauge. The are be ready to haggle though. Haggle little bit number three facebook ads okay. Everybody's like wait. Whoa whoa i would rear dale talk about facebook ads too often for good reason because there is a steep learning curve in for the most part facebook ads then simple to a lot of people. But for me. I've always found it to be just a little bit overwhelming and i know there's few other authors that do and there's been some authors that will pump in hundreds if not thousands of dollars per day to send towards their book only to find zero dollars in sales so it really requires more of a granular pro ch- in building out of following over on facebook. Maybe even importing your email list and building a look alike audience and then re marketing re targeting that audience and sending them over to your book offers. There's quite a few people that are just. It's in their wheelhouse. More dawson for instance. The of the podcast self publishing formula. He actually you know has an entire course based on it Brian cohen has Course on amazon ads and i believe covers facebook ads. It could be wrong. Sorry bron brian. If i'm completely wrong on this one but You know if you're willing to kind of put in the hours and learn just a little bit invest into this facebook can and will pay you back. I know that my wife dabbles a little bit of facebook ads and has had some pretty good results from it. Good friend of mine and One of the co owners of romance publishing academy jacob rothenberg swears by facebook ads. So if you really just take time to try to learn learn from somebody who's actually just excelling at it then you'll probably do really really good burnin right through these things..

"So and so. My name is dale roberts. I've written blah blah blah. I believe your audience will enjoy some of this content. And here's why would you be open to the opportunity for me to come over and speak on your youtube channel about xyz topic. Keep your communication brief. I'm gonna tell you this. I get inundated with a lot of requests for interviews and folks. I turned down a lot of interviews. Because a lotta people forget that at the end of the day. There's a human being on the other side of things who has put a lot of work into his following and growing my awareness. And if someone's just coming in just to for lack of better words get clout from being on my platform. Then it's a big turnoff. I wanna see whoever's going to be a guest on my podcast or my youtube channel is going to have a little more skin in the game that they're not just showing up just to look pretty get the prestige from that. So i want you to remember that when you're coaching some of them. What's in it for them right. What are you going to bring to that video that they wouldn't get otherwise without you podcasts. Next thing simple by the way podcasts. Youtube channels any kind of video. Get on google. Type up your niche and put in podcast or put in youtube channel. Search it up bing bang boom. We found him. Those have pseudonyms or work under a pen name. This might actually work out really in your favor now. Due diligence is totally required. On your part. That if you really want to get a podcast booking in need first of all find out is it with camera. Okay if it's with video of some sort that's probably not for you or you can communicate to the house. Look i don't have a good camera. I prefer going ahead to sting with audio but dula due-diligence ahead of time. That's why i said pen names. You're not out you can still be able to do some interviews great resource podcast. Guests dot com. They've got a premium service. I used to for.
