How To Be Grateful When Everything Sucks With DaRa Williams

"Hello Dora first time on the PODCAST. Thanks for coming on. Appreciate it. Thank you, Dan. Yes it is. I'm really excited. You made time for the so thank you. You're welcome. You're welcome. You said something super interesting. What you said a bunch of super interesting things before we started rolling the first one I wanna, latch onto and. Bring back into your mind right now is use said you appreciate that we've been doing this focus on the? Four BRAHMA VIHARA during the election. And you said, I think there should be a fifth breath of Yarra, which is gratitude. And I love that and I want to know. Is gratitude possible when everything sucks. That's a good question. Is gratitude possible. Not only do I think it's possible but I think it's essential in order to navigate the sucky. You now. And when we think about gratitude, it doesn't have to be this big grand. But it could be something like I'm grateful I woke up with breath this morning you know and I'm not gonna down the whole political thing right now. But the breath is something we've all been very present to in these last five months in terms of how quickly it can be something other than available to us. Gratitude can be something as simple as waking up in the morning and really censoring oneself or really bit before this I do this even before my feet hit the ground like, thank you not to any body but. Just the expression of gratitude through my heart and mind that I'm here for another day, and then I do the listen and I hear my mom I live with my ninety six year old mom I hear her start moving around downstairs of bombs good. You know and then I hear my husband and then the cat jumps on the bed and we get a little morning greeting like those kinds of just day to day kind of small. But incrementally acknowledged opportunities for gratitude really helped to serve as a cloak or as a holding. To navigate all the other stuff that mostly all of us do from the time we start engaging with the world until the time we go to bed at night. So yeah. Yeah, and I also think maybe that aspects of gratitude are a natural kind of organic unfolding if one is engaged with Meta or loving kindness or Karuna compassion as its English word or Madisha. Sympathetic joy packer. Equanimity anyone are all those together we're in the practice of those at also Kinda fuels are strengthens this turning towards remembering. That we all have something to have gratitude about. So. That's kind of what just of showed up there in relationship to then and other thing of Abou- gratitude. Yes. Certainly these times are really off the charts and I'm a good one for saying you know. Throughout history, there's been off the chart times for groups of people at various different times but there's something about the coalescing where the coming together sn numerous. So many challenging and difficult things along with the kind of really. Challenge with. Moving away from all of that, creating the space from all of that sometimes, you may not be feel in love in your heart. Sometimes. You may not be feeling economists will like this. Sometimes, you may definitely may not be feeling joyful, but we always find something always find something that we can have gratitude for end. Every person every person I don't know if this podcast I'm sure it is probably heard outside of the United States as well. But if I'm speaking to the United States every person here including first nations people including the indigenous people of these lands. Come. From people where there were hard times. You know if you're a descendant or your ancestors are immigrants from someplace else you can bet they were hard times. You know certainly if you're African American or out of the African diaspora, you know that there were hard times and sometimes continue to be hard times and certainly if you are indigenous to this land, if you come from people who are indigenous this land from this, you also know that they were hard time. So hard times are not new it's not a new place to. Be is not a new happening in humankind, but fortunately for us beyond our ancestors needing to also just survive in those times you know like how food shelter have water all those kinds of things that's pretty much for many of us not all of us, but that's pretty much available to all of us. So even that is to be as stand under the shower like, Oh, I am so glad to have this shower hot water hits my back in the muscles start to relax. Gratitude.

Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19

"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.

This is his second appearance here on the motto Ho show and he's just a really good friend of mine. Again, this is such an insightful and powerful episode. So let's get ready and tune in very closely for this incredible conversation with the Amazing Light Watkins. Crutches. You're crushing man. We're just broke down over here. We're going in numbers. You I gotta get out of here. For some. Happen to be. A. Hurry up. Real quick. Back. We just puts it a fireman. You spend a you have to. Bear. Army leafs everything. Man here sharp come over here. Be Ready. So last time we talked you were doing when you're like I, think about you. Avatar like there's this cartoon, my son and I watch this for back in the day but there's his character named and he's Avatar and he's traveling from place to place you know. In the energy around learning, and then you move onto the next place you know you had your bag you was out there. You know and obviously things have changed. So first of all, how was that experience of traveling what is far to do that in that capacity in house have been the pivot being back home this kind of home spot here. With US and Callie. Yes. So I I went. In two thousand in May of two, thousand, eighteen, I got rid of all of my. Belongings that didn't fit in a carry on bag and I was in Santa Monica and a two bedroom apartment. I was forty five at the time so. At forty something years of stuff. Literally like baby albums had shoe boxes full of letters from you know twenty thirty years just being an adult. and. So. I sort of methodically got rid of everything and. All the memorabilia out and took photos of most of it. So I had it in the cloud. And I did it because I had A. I don't know I had. I don't know I. Think I feel like minimalism nomadic lifestyle was in the Zeitgeist at the time so I was getting this strong urge to. To have that experience, and so I just said Yes to it because I had been practising saying yes to stuff like that my you know my entire. Adult life. And I did it and so I started hopping around different cities who my carry on bag in backpack, and then I was like I can do better than this. and. Merged everything into a backpack. So got rid of the carry on. Bag. Onto that Dora the explorer. Yeah exactly and. Yes I've been doing that for the last couple of years and honestly man I have not missed having. A stability. And in fact, what I discover was that the true stability was inside right And so if you have that, you can be anywhere and you can be fine. And so when the pandemic hit. Obviously changed a lot of things because I was going international a lot. And I couldn't do that, and so I just kind of got an AIRBNB and grounded for a while but I'm still living out of my backpack. So I'm still living the lifestyle, but I'm just in one place for longer and then you know. So now what's interesting about it is that people are asking me. Do you miss being on the road all the time and I'm actually now I don't miss it at all I'm happy to be in one place because in the last couple years, I've literally been around the World Two or three times over and so you know It's nice to be able to kind of ground and focus on some projects. I got my podcast off the ground and got my third book turned in and all these other things that I was like asking for time to stop knowing that that's not a realistic ask but I was putting it out in the universe anyway and very low and behold. So is your fault times. Which is why? Twenty twenty because I know what I was.

Are Most Words Already Trademarked

"The writer of today's episode. John Perry Tano rescued two cats from a local vet back in nineteen ninety nine and named one Pandora. He says, he was reading a lot of Greek mythology back then. A couple of years later and Dora Brandon jewelry became all the rage. What if John had trademarked that name I, but he and his friend could have been swimming and cat treats. Yet even if he had thought of it according to to New York University, law professors, it probably would have been too late to cash in. It seems that many of the words we use every day are traded marked, which means it's difficult for entrepreneurs to find good names for new companies. Take Pandora for instance, search the US patent and trademark office database, and you'd find a number of companies that already use Pandora in their name avatars and logos. There's a Pandora Hair Collection Pandora radio and yes Pandora's box. The two professors looked at the six point seven, million trademark. Filed at the US patent and trademark office between two, thousand, three and two, thousand sixteen, they then studied a database of the hundred thousand most frequently used words in American English it's called the Corpus of contemporary American English according to the Oxford English dictionary. There are a bit under two hundred thousand words currently and using the English language but according to the website test your vocab dot com, the median adult native English Speaker knows only about twenty to thirty, five, thousand of them. But back to this study, the authors also reviewed a US census list of the hundred, fifty, one, thousand, six, hundred, seventy, two, most frequently occurring surnames in the United. States. What they found will knock your socks off which by the way is also trademarked they wrote in a two thousand eighteen issue of the Harvard law review the data present compelling evidence of substantial word, mark depletion, a particularly with respect to the sets of potential marks that businesses prefer most standard. English words, Short neologisms that are pronounced by speaking and common American surnames. NEOLOGISM is a term for newly coined words or expressions. NEOLOGISM is still available to be trademarked though other common words do have pending registrations including even the word the. Yes. The currently has eleven active trademark resignations. The result of so many trademarks is that new businesses have to strain their noggins and use variations of Noggin are already taken to come up with Mon. occurs that aren't already claimed or resort to what's called a parallel registration. That's when two companies use the exact same name as long as it won't confuse consumers a for example, Delta faucets versus Delta. Airlines. The authors wrote given these conditions. New applicants are increasingly resorting to sub optimal marks. The data indicate that applicants are applying less often for standard English words and common surnames and more often for complex marks as measured by character syllable and word. Count. and. All of this could likely explain why we see more company names like flicker Tumbler and lift olive which leave out letters or incorporate other misspellings of common words.

All About Virtual Therapy

"Thanks so much for joining me for session. One fifth of the therapy for black girls podcast as many people are now beginning to work with their therapist. Virtually a might be looking so work with the therapist for the first time it will be meeting with them. Virtually I thought it'd be a great time to rewind and share this interview. I did with Melissa Douglas again as she has been providing virtual services in her Saint Louis Practice for the past couple of years. Melissa is the owner of goal driven counseling a private Tele Mental Health counseling practice where she supports teens and millennials challenging educational career and life transitions through secure videoconferencing. She's a native of Chicago Illinois but has called St Louis Missouri home for almost a decade. She's a proud Triton who received a best of social work degree master of social work degreen and also as a ticket in nonprofit management in leadership from the University of Missouri Saint Louis. She's a licensed clinical social worker and a distance credentialed counselor who has diverse volunteer work experience with us in juvenile detention community based and educational settings. Melissa and I discussed some of the differences between traditional in virtual therapy. How you can decide if it's right for you how to find a virtual therapist and she shared all of her favorite APPs for Mensa weld is if you hear something that resonates with you are listening. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. Tgi In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Listen thank you for having me Dr Joy. I'm very happy you were able to join us today. Because I know there have been a lot of questions about people looking Virgil at therapy or if they live like in a town that's further from a big city and they're not like a lot of therapists they're people are wanting to know do therapist offer virtual action so. I know that you have a completely online practice and this way correct. Yes so you are the perfect person to talk with us about some of these concerns so I can you tell us a little bit. About what virtual therapy is and how? It might be different from traditional therapy. Yes so it's very basic in so we're gonNA talk about has basically tele mental health and virtual therapy because there's a whole other section of just telemedicine that covers a lot of different professionals by talents evolve. Israeli when the clinician and the client are in different physical locations using technology to communicate pretty much and so it's referred to eat therapy virtual therapy online therapy distance counseling. And what I tell. Clients is Dora virtual counseling or virtual therapy sessions. We can do almost everything other than I can't handle a tissue if you start to cry at a time and I can't be a physical support in a crisis but because I use all video and actual platform designed for telehealth. It helps me to have the same relationship report to be developed and the resources to be used. Because I can share my screen. With people's we can work through resources things together in actually see worksheets and stuff like that. I can have more than one person in a session with me. So couples counseling family. Counseling can be just the same as as traditional therapy but when you talk about Tele Mental Health. There are other options other than video. So you have phone counseling as well as a synchronous methods. Such as email and text based counseling. And so all that means is that you there are not live communicating. So you may send a message and you have to wait until the counseling therapists can respond to that. And then you go back and forth that way. And so with those methods there has to be a comfort with communicating fillings in POPs in a in a written format but the largest difference. Is that the responsibility of ensuring privacy of the session is a little bit more shifted to the client because they're in their own space but I always share that tell them will help isn't better or superior methods to traditional counseling. It's really all about appropriateness and our preference so it sounds like it is very similar to coming into the Office for therapy except that you might be in your home. Like in Pajama Bottoms. So what kind of feedback have you gotten from your clients? Melissa about whether be you know like like it better or worse than traditional therapy. Like what kind of feedback have you gotten so again like I said it's all about preference but I received a lot of great from our clients because again because I use the video base we really are able to establish the same relationship and report because we can still see and feel each other's personality we can hear the to- now with the end we can see affect from each other and so it's a little bit more van just communicating written format? And so we're able to really Bill at relationship. They also enjoy the flexibility. It allows in their schedules as well as the convenience of just having to log on. And I'm right there. They don't have to travel or really fit it into their schedule. In addition to travel and things like that but I always share with people who are a little bit unsure about telehealth. Because you know honestly it's it's still a fairly new thing. It's been around for about thirty years and we talk about the telemedicine space but for Tele mental health. I think it's gaining more traction in the last ten years more visibility and so. I always tell people that it's been researched for effectiveness in solid in the early two thousands. There were a lot of different studies but a couple that I like. I like to share is added. Two thousand one. A study was conducted by the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University. Here in Saint Louis. So patients quickly adapt and establish report because the basics of relationship building. Is there with telehealth? And then there was another one another study done in two thousand five by a psychologist from northwestern university who conducted trials that show that clients living with depression tended to stay in counseling longer and saw a larger reduction in symptoms by participating on counseling. And so I like people to know that. There is research back to the effectiveness of elements of health and virtual. Yeah I mean and I'm glad you brought that up right. Because that he is I think another benefit of virtual therapy is you know sometimes one of the more significant symptoms of depression is like not wanting to move and not wanting to leave your house so if you can talk with your therapist via you know your laptop or your tablet then you can still participate in treatment in you know may receive some benefits from the treatment that you wouldn't have if you stayed home. Yeah absolutely as well as the social anxiety is as well and we know that. That's the largest mental health illness in the world and so police will stay in the US and so that's also a great benefit as well. And I think it is important for us to mention that this is not jumping on facetime with your therapist right so it's not like your therapist will just facetime call you and you just answer. These are very are at least therapist should be using hippo compliant software and platforms that will increase the security of the session. Correct absolutely yes. Yeah so there are precautions that your therapist should be taking but like you mentioned you know like if you decide to have your session and you know your partner is like right next to you. Then you're compromising you're all confidentiality but your therapist is taking the repercussions. They need to make sure the session is. Yes absolutely. You got you okay. So what kinds of consideration should somebody consider if they're thinking about virtual therapy like what kinds of things might be WANNA think about? Yes so I always say that. The virtual therapy is the method in which we're doing the actual therapy. You definitely want to consider the expertise of the clinician if their focus is what you need and saw. You WanNa make sure that that the actual option is not the main thing that the person if you're experiencing depression or anxiety that that actual clinician that's offering the virtual therapy specializes in those things. Another huge thing because of the the lack of geographical barriers would tell them it's a health. We WanNa make sure that the commission has licensed in the state that you resign him because legally required men. So that's a misconception that a lot of people have is that because we give us our phones or computers and things like that that we can work with anybody and that's not true. Also I tell people to do a real self assessment and consider if they would be comfortable sansom on from a distance the end because the confident the impact of separate therapeutic space is really important to some people in Psalm as well as thinking about if you have a support person that is is nearing assessable if there is ever an emergency situation and so that's not something that was mentioned yet but emergency planning. It's something that is very important when it comes to tell them health because if a client were to experience at some time some suicidal thoughts or things like that there has to be an emergency management plan in place that that usually includes a emergency support person near the town of triage. That with the therapist in the end client should be feel free to access their tele mental health therapist or counselor has completed any chiming in so some states required in Psalm. Donning in you also share that you know it's not just jumping on facetime call. Any really really speaks to the clinician operating in their areas of competence. Which is a a safeguard for the client and the client should be comfortable and aware of talking about that with the clinician. Yeah and like you said all the states don't require it but you know it does feel like most therapist who are doing significant amount of virtual. Therapy are tele. Mental Health have completed at least some like trainings in maybe even some additional certifications. Yes yeah so. Can you talk a little bit more about the emergency planning because I know that that is something that often comes up and I think something that you know frightened some therapists away from maybe wanting to do elements? Health is like okay. We'll do I do in case of an emergency. So can you talk a little bit about with their processes like with you? And your clients. Yes so assessment of fit is very important so when a client contacts me for consultation. We're having that initial call. I'm usually doing a brief assessment at that time and so I'm assessing if they are at high risk of currently having suicidal thoughts or have had a plan or intent also assessing for any homicide Any active substance use Any delusions around technology and so that means some people experience thoughts and things that someone is spying on their computer things like that. So that wouldn't be comfortable in a therapeutic face if that's some concerns as well as some complex traumas in some those are some things that I quickly assess floor in consultation with also the assessment phase and so with the emergency planning share with clients that if any safety issue were to come up and we'll just speak about the the suicidal thoughts and things like that. If that was ever be concerned that I definitely openly share with them. That is my ethical responsibility to call the police to do a wellness check and things like that but I also wanted to be a little bit more comfortable for them too so we talk about any support people that they have in their life that has click access to them. And so if it is a spouse work is a parent that they would give me permission to disclose and contact them and say that. I am their therapist in Bay are having a very hard time right now and if they could check on them. I remain on the phone or in a session with my client during that time but then I also triage with the support. Person is what okay so it is very similar to what you would do if you were meeting with the person in your office absolutely but unfortunately they have the ability to hang up and disconnect right thank you know they have the Leave your office. Like I've had clients that leave. You know like just abruptly into session if you know things are not going the way they want us something. So they're still option even in real life. That's true yeah so Melissa does insurance. Pay For ritual therapy yes. There are many insurance companies that pay for virtual usually equivalents of the cost traditional but it varies state to state and it also varies between insurance companies as well and so I always tell people the best thing to do is to contact their ensure to ask about the the details of their specific plans. Okay Okay and so if that is something that is going to be like a priority like if using your insurance

"Terms of operations where we're global And so for me. You know a good chunk of what I do is related to technology because technology has a place you know from the initial customer experience ordered a cache procure to pay record to report so that plays a big piece and that's the the people and the process and the tech strategy goes with that but then there's overall financial operations and shared services for. How do we support our line of business segments when when they conduct their business and and how can we run those kind of back office functions a lot more efficiently and in the right locations with the right skills and it's really you know the the guts it's the engine room You know that enabled us to go out and attract business and and you know executed efficiently. That's really my my core role and can you talk a bit about the form that digital transformation takes an organization like yours. I mentioned a moment ago. That said clearly part of what excited the executive team about your abilities in in bringing you on board talk a bit about the formats taken across the now as I say to. Nearly two and a half years so that you've been enroll it's quite pervasive because the digital transformation is everything from the systems and technology that allow you from the very beginning of you know just doing looking at the opportunity. So that's in your your crm systems. It's in your data systems that allow you to you. Know Ingest customer and supplier information that's in portal strategies its self service increasingly because a lot of our supply base is third party it's creating API's and more of an ecosystem to allow different participants to play without having to make it so complex and and build Point to point integrations or do it manually. So in one sense that's one piece of the digital transformation on the other it really is around the efficiency and and in using robotics Cr and different Technologies so that every piece of data that comes and hopefully we can bring in digitally. We could process it. Digitally we can analyze it did Chile and make more sense out of all the data that we're collecting. You know to make better business decisions and and that can be in in pricing. We buy an awful lot. You know we're buying and selling you know. Forty billion dollars worth of energy in one way shape or form and it doesn't take you know a you know a bit of an intelligence we can use that data you know. Apply some a and machine learning to a can. We actually improved you know our operating margins but also improve the experience back to the customer so that it really it entails everything from the very very beginning from opportunity all the way back to you know how we close the books and do our our analytics on the back yet. No doubt a lot of what you just described Were things that either were in nascent forms or perhaps in some cases were were already up and running. I'm curious when you join the organization. How much change was necessary. wraps the changes continuing in order to realize the vision of what you just described. I think one thing I learned Who wore wounds pass rules and stuff as well as your strategy and tactics have to manage the town? That's you have on the pitch so if you WanNa you know you want to move to the cloud aggressively and use and use digital technologies You know you have to have the skills to do that. So a good chunk of my very first year was really taking a look. You know from the bottom up you know what our core skills. We need. How those roll up into roles? How do we create an Agile Organization? We did something quite different that I experienced And my last couple jobs as well as rather than doing an orange strategy top down. Go from the bottom up. Look at what work needs to be done. What's do that? Well and apply more of spotify model of grouping people into small self directed teams that are kind of loosely coupled tightly aligned into tribes tribes into a domain so that you run a leaner management structure unless levels. But in order to do that. You've gotTa have the talent to bring that in so we went on. You know you know really strong. Assessment training bringing new skills in and I would say over the last two years. We've turned over You know about a third of our workforce you know you needed that amount of replenishment to bring the skill base up because there is no You know there's no compression algorithm for experience. You need to have done it before so we needed to bring people in that. Could you know others could could learn from at an accelerated pace and pick the right partners and ride their way? And so I think that's the other key strategy of being ready as you know you're only as good as the people you surround yourself with sweets that you have ever principles. It's pick our partners based on the company I product second. Because your company's you leading indicator your product features you're lagging we spent. The first year was an awful lot from you. Know who we need at the executive level. What kind of practitioners do we need? What kind of special skills and analytics and digital and cloud and and replenishing to the point that we could execute strategy that we really want to really like that pick people based on company I products second for the reasons you articulated as you thought about the people that were the worst of this replenishment the replacement of the third. Or so of folks who changed over. How important was experiencing the type of work that you foresaw as important or more or less important than experience in the industry. You need that you need experience in the industry and we had a a decent amount of that but it variance in the the technologies and how to solve problems in different ways. You need a mesh need this kind of diversity of thought in any great organization and and that's in addition to gender and race so you need the industry piece but my piece my history experience would tell me that attitude is is more important than an aptitudes you need to create the right culture and and people have a much larger capacity to learn then they get themselves credit for but you have to have the right people to create the right environment and then set high expectations and the better people will come up to speed more quickly that we have a capacity to learn whether it's a business domain or technology domain far greater than we think and but you have to have enough congestion of talent and leadership. You know just to enable that to happen they have very interesting indeed. I'm also curious. You talked about the need to build a better set of partners a broader ecosystem. My Word Not Yours but how on translating what you were describing who curious what sorts of changes you made from that perspective as well. Clearly you've been thinking about the mix of people the internal as well as extra. What sorts of changes did you make as a result of that analysis? Why think on the on the partner side we had a few business objectives and I think this is probably the other thing at least good advice for. Cio's that went to you. Know take on other broader business roles look at it in terms of what's the business objectives and the business outcome. You Really WanNa get in one of the things that we needed to do. To connect people across the world in a more effective way was to create a strong productive environment for them so that they could collaborate and learn from each other at a faster pace so we looked at. Who are the best companies in collaboration? And we're GonNa make you know hard. I would call student body right. Turns and get on those companies because we knew that in addition to the products they sold we could learn different things from them so three companies. We used in what I would call. The employee. Collaboration environment were box. Zoom in slack and their three. You know great run companies. They've got they've run it's interesting. They run similar management systems with okay ours which are from John. Dora and how you do a objectives and key results and you know box for content management zoom or video and PBX and communications And then slack for collaboration and all three of those companies have helped us Outside yes their technology is in use utilize them for the problems they've solved we've looked at their leadership techniques If you take a look at zoom one of the top rated companies to work for actually all three of them are looked at their leadership techniques. We looked at their engineering practices at at box. We sit on their advisory boards to to you know. I think one of our other key principles. Both parties should benefit outside the commercial relationship. And so we use those which. Reiki changes. I'd say in the collaboration environment and the we had a very big goal to Closed down our data centers and Migrate Everything to the Cloud. So we partnered with. Aws than they try. They train onsite even help us recruit at universities. When we're looking at undergraduate hires and really help us become better company. By looking at some of the things that they do in their leadership system and And even how? The recruiting practices things like that. So those are four partners that we have gotten measurably better at a faster taste because we were relying on your good skills internally but also hiring what's needed but also partnering with the People that are measurably better than the ones we

The Wisdom of Solitude: Lessons from the Lives of the Prophets

"We look at the lives of the prophets to see what we can learn from something. We're supposed to do all the time. Anyway I something that lesson hunting with the other. He wants us to do. That's why he sa- panel with the honor. His put their stories in on We have more detail about them in the highly. And so I wanted to begin by looking at the life of a Ubani Saddam when he says what are you ignore? The Obama who anemia sunny. A little while under Rohani And mentioned a you when he cool to his Lord Indeed. Adversity has touched me. And you are the most messy full Over the muscle said you by the Senate on this Great Prophet of Los Apparently Data. Who many of us have heard of many people love it? They love him so much that they named their children off to the U. Many many a UBIQUONOL massage school. It's families what was so great about this prophet. And what lessons can we take from his life now in in the Times that we're in this situation of where without tells us here in the NBA? He called on a loss of Hanoi Thailand and mentioned a you when he called his Lord. Indeed adversity has touched me. So you buddy. Saddam he says to us about Sapan Donna in Nima Sunny Doda. That has afflicted me something by this happened to me. Then also handle the data in the next Jeopardize the Hoof Akasha abby he indoor The Dallas so we responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity will add a now. Who who Miss American or Indiana where they could only live and we gave him back his family and the like there with them as mercy from us and a reminder for the worship of a law so you about this profitable east from the most beloved of creation to Those special human beings that were chosen by a lesson with due to the cleanliness of their hall due to day connection the commitment to a lesson and this great prophet. He's then tested. He's given test that. He can be Shaab that he can take because without a dozen tests. Us doesn't afflicts us with anything that we can't handle you live alone of sin in there was he had a wife. He had children. He added family. He had well he had looks. He had all these things he had a place in society and loss of handle what he tested Ubani Saga by afflicting him with a disease within a an ailment and this caused him to become repulsive to the people he's his skin was was covered in these In this disease and people when they saw him they were repulsed by his life. They didn't want to go near. And so for being this person who was wealthy family Mixed and went about his business went about society about with people as he as we do. He went from that to being somebody who no one wanted to be around. Nobody wants you to see. And he became almost completely cut off. He had His wife who remained him.

Just going about people mixing with them talking to them socializing with that He loses his family and he loses his wealth and of course he's lost his health. Now he doesn't in this area also says you will listen. He says to almost a Muslim. Hi Donna way you if neither a robot who anemic do. He says the. I've been afflicted with adversity. Are you ready? Salaam? Does it make donahue. He just states the fact that I've been afflicted And so powerful that sufficient that was sufficient for a loss of Hannibal at the IDA to know what he wants what he saying and a lust soprano Diana says Though that we answered he's He's plea what he wanted.

There are those people who've Suffered the loss of livelihood in the same way as Saddam did there are those people who Who are losing family members? They themselves might be fine. Themselves may have gotten better but they have lost family members. So this only things that we may be going through now that Similar to what you really.

There is an inclination forms. You know in some of us for many reasons It may be because of our background. They may be because away from that when something bad happens when something difficult happens the first instinct is to turn to some of those bad things from our background so someone may tend to drugs. Someone may may tend to You know other things other things. I don't mention them in the fear that people think it's okay to time to these things Because it's not a loss without when he speaks about patients and that's why we're talking about.

Look like that when these things happen when these hardships they strike then a less Hannah what the ISLA expects from us that we tend to him. that's what patients looks like. We turned to him in Dora. We to humidity bad. We tend to him in controlling our our souls and containing ourselves.

How Foodora couriers made history with their fight to join a union

"By now I think most of us no problems with the GIG economy. It treats workers as disposable doesn't offer benefits or protection or anything we traditionally associate with. You know a job. It doesn't pay well enough either so a regular shift can barely make ends meet so for the workers not great for users. It's incredibly convenient. And it's not going anywhere and that means that if anything is going to change in terms of working conditions in the GIG. It's going to have to happen the same way. Those conditions have been changed for more than a century with organizing but before you can officially or at least in the eyes of the law in Canada you need to be classified as workers not as independent contractors or entrepreneurs so that is the first fight but once it's been one then the doors open and then we'll see who tries to walk through it and how the companies that drive the GIG economy. Try TO SLAM IT in their face. Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story Sarah. Much headway is the work and wealth reporter with the Toronto Star. She also has an upcoming podcast. That is all about the fight for working conditions in the GIG economy I saw. Why don't you start because I know you've done a ton of this reporting? Just tell me a little bit about what it's like to work in the GIG delivery economy for food or or companies like that. Yeah I've learned a lot over the past year about kind of the daily routine and kind of daily reality for these workers. I mean the first thing to say is obviously often very physically demanding job done and often quite harsh and Brinkley. Dangerous Conditions Just imagine riding your bike around Toronto fifty kilometers a day in minus twenty weather. It's it's not easy so One of the major concerns of these workers as safety on the road and that partly speaks to as well the way. Our city is designed and not being Super Friendlier. Safe for cyclists. But you know. A bunch of the careers are also drivers. And there's a bunch of safety challenges that come with that as well in terms of having to sort of be tuned in this APP on your phone and driving around the city having to find parking spots that it's very challenging The second thing is that the pay is very low. I mean it's they get for food or are they. Got Four dollars and fifty cents for each delivery. And then they get a commoner a dollar per kilometer from restaurant to drop off so there's really an An incentive and an pressure to get as many orders as you can so again. That's quite demanding in that sense. In order to be financially viable. Really have to turn out those those orders. So yeah the low pay. The unpredictable pay is is Is a major feature of the job and I think. Lastly it's the sense that there's a bit of a lack of respect. I think is how the carriers would have described it for their job and For the for the people doing it. So so that's really sort of what I've learned about the everyday realities of the job. Will you mentioned briefly when you were talking about driving? But to what extent are they tied to this APP? At least according to what you've heard. Yeah so there's been hearings at the Labor board over the past six months that really revealed a lot about how these APP companies operating and obviously most companies don't have to reveal their inner workings but in this case they've sort of had to in a tribunal setting so we've sort of gotten a window into how the APPs intervene in workers kind of daily workflow infra doors case There's an algorithm that determines when you can get shifts so basically the fastest rider the best riders. The ones that you know never are late logging into the APP. And all that kind of thing they're gonNA get first priority in terms of selecting shifts. So that's one way that the APP kind of heavily bit of control. I didn't even realize that they worked in shifts. I thought it was kind of like Uber. Where you know you log in whenever you're ready for some more now that's the major difference between Food Aura. And say Uber Eats. You can just log in and start picking up orders but with Dora. There's sort of this. Extra layer so so some of the features of the way food were operates are are unique to fidora shifts has definitely one of them and then once you accept an order you sort of have the APP beeping at you and telling you whether you're on time in terms of delivering and that kind of thing so that's another way where you're sort of interaction with the APP all the time and Auras also unique because it does have a layer of human dispatchers who careers can also communicate with While they're on shift and what we kind of learned is that those dispatchers are in some ways monitoring couriers behavior which again can restrict or change their ability to log into the APP get shifts so the dispatchers issue strikes for what they see as poor performance whether it's late deliveries or whatever it is And that can in the worst circumstances actually lead to craze being deactivated from the APP and not being able to log in at all. So you've kind of hinted at a couple of times but what is unique about food or maybe explain this just Through the Lens of who is I've an Ostos. So I've also says a career with Dora and he's being at the forefront of trying to organize the union and If this group of careers successful they will be the first at based workforce in Canada to unionize and actually one of the first on the continent so it is a. It's a big deal and really the reason From speaking to an interviewing Ivan and other carriers that they're sort of trying to form a union it goes back to wages the safety and the respect on the job and really a big part of their argument is that you know food says all of these couriers are self-employed entrepreneurs. They don't have the right to form a union. They're you know they're entrepreneurs doing their own thing. The Independent contractors that we hear about all the time exactly and this is a huge pillar of the GIG economy and what Ivan and other careers basically sat at the Labor Board. Was I mean no? There's all these ways that the APP controls the way we do our job and in that sense. It sort of resembles an employer telling you you know when to work and how to work So that was One of the main thrust of what we heard at the Labor Board and recently the Labor Board essentially agreed with the carriers and said yes. This looks more like an employment relationship. So what is the difference or at least? What's the difference supposed to be between a fulltime employees or even just a part time employees and the typical independent contractor? Yes so I went. Boil it down to say that an independent contractor someone who has a lot of power and control over the way that they do their work and these stand to either profit or lose profit from the fruits of their labor so really easy to example to think of as a contractor that you hire to renovate your house your apartment you know you strike a deal with them and then they choose how they go about doing the job whether they bring in five guys to do their work for them or you know they call the plumber to come in and do something. They're really in control of of how they do that. Work and you can say hey at the end of the day. I'm not happy I'M GONNA end this contract. But you can't be like you know. I'm going to give you a performance review and discipline you for this thing that. I don't like that you did because they're not your employees so that kind of is the essence of an independent contractor And again most APP companies Classify their workers in this way. How does the term allow up companies to get more from these workers? Well I think what it does is really reduce the burden on the company as certainly a financial burden it means that the company companies are not paying into a pension plan into an inch employment insurance neither of the workers It means that the workers have no protection under provincial employment laws. It means that they don't have the right to join a union that they don't have the right to minimum wage. So you know it's really downloading a lot of the responsibility for you know your rights and protections on the job to the individual worker and removes them from the system That is set up to protect regular employees on the job.

"This has been being talked about by all the NBA people. So I didn't want it to be spoiled for all right so this is a genuine reaction. I have no idea where you say. So what is the episode? That set you off where you're no longer going to attend games at masters locally being dragged by his pants or whatever out of the arena. Okay so after. That is out there and did nothing. So after that Charles Oakley Sue James Dolan Square Garden a civil lawsuit well today that lawsuit was dismissed by Manhattan federal judge so Oakley sued MSG for defamation assault false imprisonment and other and other things related to this twenty seventeen incident. He claimed in his suit. He was being unfairly targeted for making jabs at Dole. And who's also in attendance? And then they also claimed that oh he was drunk and belligerent. So this got thrown out. The judge sided with Dolan and Madison Square Garden. Saying Oakley failed to make a plausible legal argument to support these claims Madison Square Garden. James Dolan released a statement all no. We thanked the court for its ruling. This was an incident that no one was happy about. Maybe now there can be peace. Maybe be peace between us. What an olive branch. What an olive branch now. Maybe that you sued me. And there's no legal standing in I guess any New York Law Federal Law. Whatever law there might be that. There is no legal standing of an argument that I should win this case because James Dolan is a complete a whole. That's not that's not a legal a valid legal perch from which to sue someone so now maybe there can be peace between us. Oh my gosh. Is there nobody in Madison Square Garden? That could tell this man what to say. Is there nobody? I mean there has to be because he's the one that went to the Michael Caine interview years ago. Would that that said the binder that said talking points right. Yeah so. The man is open to receiving talking points. How can somebody say? Hey Mr Dolan if you don't mind taking off that scarf it's it's ridiculous and the Fidora Dora.

Maybe peace between us that you're offering of an olive branch is his loss in court. Meaning you're the aggrieved party. Not Him. This might make things a little bit worse for this part of the fan base. That loves Charles. There's no is there. Nobody in that building that can look him in the face.

"Is right now and she says that for her students who grew up watching dora. It's actually kind of hard to stomach that contrast and so on the one hand as you mentioned dora represents this tremendous amount of freedom for a young latina girls and then you turn around and you sort of look at the rise of of the carsl state via immigration and anti latino sentiment in the united united states and it is confusing. I think it's very confusing and we have a young generation of lengthy necks as calling themselves now kind of shaking their heads and saying wait like there was this world that i imagined as a young person those about freedom articulated in things like dora the explorer and then i'm confronted rounded instead with this highly policed existence on the basis of my skin color or my accent as we've been reporting the story. We've learned that cultural show sensitivity. It's something that's growing and it's something that's becoming more and more important and mass media in films and tv shows yeah clearly we heard from the creators it was important to them and then but now just like the conversations going to step further but at the same time people are openly showing their hate towards people of color immigrant communities you know specifically and that's the question then. Nobody really knows what that means for us yeah like why is it that at the same time that they're sort of like a progression in representation. There's also a progression in disdain for those communities that are being represented and i think that that just goes to show that the values that draft. I tried to teach kids. Those are still really relevant it.

"Responsible for saving these pigs lives so we know how canes impacted the making of the show they were unofficial editors of each episode but how adora impact kids or society in general to understand dora's cultural significance. I spoke to nicole kidman. This door offers piqued my interest actually when i assan article about the series in latina magazine in two thousand and five and i started watching as a late twentieth something she's he's a professor at the university of texas austin and her article dora the explorer constructing that need this and the politics of global citizenship was actually one of the most downloaded articles in the the journal of latino studies of all time and she says that because of doors huge popularity her representation has had implications on how people understand that next identity entity you're presented with a kinda generic latini dodd from makeup rico kuwa- <hes> the dominican republic etc yeah i agree with the professor faster i mean i also understand why the creators wanted to make door up on latina. It may be more inclusive and other kids feel like they can relate to her but then we're kind of a racing the differences between latin american countries culture identity all those things that make us unique just the way that dora presents with her skin tone and her straight hair and her brown is it sort of reinforces this like standard look of latina specifically that all latinos those are this mix of hispanic and indigenous descent all of the recent scholarship and research. That's come out in the last five to seven years. Especially in afro latino studies has really been invested in trying to look at the wiz that a blackness indigene have been race when in reality if we'd look it especially especially new waves of let the next migration to the united states predominantly black in indigenous people professor the van. This obviously has critiques for the way that door or a representative but there's actually one aspect of the show that she thinks is pretty radical. I think it's a very powerful message for young people and for young girls of of color in particular she sort of taking command of the narrative about where she's going to go and move in space so professor there on this argues that there's an anti colonial i'm reading up dora whereas once kakissis doors or colonists use maps to plunder and ravage communities civically in latin america.

What can you do vote for the third party. That puts americans. I vote buchanan for president twelve. Wow i can feel the scene afolabi. Pat buchanan's campaign came off the heels of a strong long anti immigrant movement in california in nineteen ninety-four prop one eighty seven a ballot initiative that tried to limit undocumented immigration to the state was introduced and at the same sometime john stanton a prominent anti immigrant activist founded a group called pro english which advocated for english to be the only official language of the u._s. <music> with these developments as a backdrop. This question of how to incorporate spanish was a really important. Jordan won the carlos the consultant he had a very specific idea of how he thought both spanish and english should be treated on the show. I suggested that they frame frame dora as a cross cultural a problem solver and because dora was able to speak both english and spanish she was able all to bridge and build a team with monolingual of two different languages. The idea was that bilingualism was going to be doris superpower her and the fact that she spoke two languages with something to be celebrated. The creators also figured out dora's last name so <hes> janice. I don't know if you knew this but it's it's not explorer. That's not no it's not explore it's marcus and they also decided her age which was seven okay so we have dora her last things marquez and she's a seven year old girl living her life yes and then they had to figure out what is this girl going to look like they gave her that signature bob which actually was very controversial nickelodeon nickelodeon products people said from the beginning is is the number one thing that kids like with dolls houses hair play. You've created the anti doll you've created and chris had really do battle to preserve that which was essential to her character valerie walsh one of the creators found an image that she just felt really captured sort of the vision of who or the explorer was going to say like ms is magazine or some magazine back in nineteen ninety nine where there was a girl i think her name was daisy and to go to school every day. She would have to zip cord across the rio negro. I think it's in columbia and she had her brother with her. In a bear like a sack she would have to put him in and zip code him across like thirty feet this river and she had all her little backpack to. She was in her uniform for her school uniform so it was like oh my talk about being prepared. There seems to be a little romanticizing here. Yeah i feel that in any case this is he's how dora came to be and on august fourteenth two thousand dora. The explorer aired on nick junior for the first time and the show was immediately popular within less than a year. The show became the top commercial hit for preschoolers h. It's two to five and part of the show. Success was the truly insane amount of research that went into every single episode. Each show would be seen by two hundred kids before we ever okay so. I'm fascinated by that process. How how do you even get two hundred kids like what a wonderful research department who worked very hard. The way it worked is that that the creators would read a story book version of the episode to a smaller focus group of kids then then researchers would come and ask the kids questions to the story..

He's in Sesame Street did in the seventies eighty door. I loved Dora, but I'm not asking for a live version. I'm not asking for a teenage version and I sure as hell I'm not asking for transformers. No, I have like a robotic monkey or something and gonna transform. It have like all these guns and heavily wheels, it's it's going to be a crossover with the sonic movie. Can I make a request possibly. Can we have any surface play boots. Records. Can you just be Caesar in boots like we just do that because that that'll be awesome. That is hilarious. And I'm curious the backpack talk. It doesn't the cartoon, but I know that's won't say that they're gonna talk to transform into like the monkey and the monkey, and the backpack are gonna come together. They're gonna make like this super, super shredder some. Yeah, pretty much pretty much did a roll into a giant ball enemy. No, you know the insanity hedgehog the little, the guy that was like the henchman and he had like the Spinney. No, the baking guy named Lana. Anyway, that's what I'm gonna come out. It's to be Dora and that guy rolling around with a monkey face for Andy circus. Honestly wouldn't surprise me because on an enemy in just just looking at like the photo they have of her. I mean, she the costumes bottle and she even has little here. It looks like and everything else. She's yes, she looks a little bit more like Vilma than Dora per se. But I mean, and she definitely does not look like a teenager. No, she, I did look it up. She is seventeen. So she is a teenager. So in actually she was in the most recent, I think transformers movie because she's the little girl in the most recent one there a little Hispanic girl in it. Okay, actress. So Michael bay like he does. He likes he finds an actor daddy, like your someone, everything that he does like I was fired and it was Mark Wahlberg and this chick. So, yeah. I feel like it's going to be it's going to drop everything that makes Dora Dora and it's just going to be an action movie. It's feel like it's going to be like tomb raider or some shit like the, I just want to know, is there going to be a part where like they're trying to find something and she's going to stop and look at the camera and be like, do you see them. You're gonna just stare for like five minutes. Right meow door and stares at you. And it's like the fuck is happening. If they don't do that, at least in like a Bluebird during the credits or something, I'm going to be very upset. So Michael bay or in the guy who was directed writer who ever, please have a moment of that even if it's a blooper at the end like you don't have to break the whole fourth wall in the middle of the movie. But even if it's at the end, if they can have that, you'll get ten cool points for me because that'll be fucking hilarious..

"Yeah, I'm, I'm still looking forward to the movie 'cause I really, really loved the first film. And while I am a little worried about the the over commercialization of the whole thing, I'm hoping that there's more to it that and maybe this will just be confined to, you know, a ten minute chunk of the movie or something, and then it'll be able to continue on with that story and not really get sidetracked with all that stuff, but we'll have to see. I think that comes out later this year h. e. let's talk a little bit about door the explorer, a live action door. The explorer movie is happening and we now have a first photo to prove it tell us what's going on. So for some reason, news of this movie has escaped my notice for the past year, I think, has a as Abella. Owner was cast as Dora the explorer as a teenage version of the character earlier this year in March. And now we have a first look at her character in the classic Dora the explorer outfit. So a pink t shirt or in shorts and a backpack. But this time she's a teenager. So the new Dora, the explorer movie follows Dora on a quote, unquote, the most dangerous adventure ever high school. But because this is the explorer, she finds herself on a an adventure with Diego and a ragtag group of teens to save her parents and solve them puzzle mystery behind a loss Inca civilization. So this is the character based on the bovid animated children's series Dora the explorer in which we have an eight year old bilingual explorer named Dora who goes on ventures and teaches kids how to speak in Spanish and other such useful t- knowledge. So. I've never seen the show. This is on long after I was a kid, but I know that as a pretty beloved property. And yeah, it's it's just I didn't know that this was becoming a movie and it's very interesting that they have is Bill moaner wearing the exact same outfit that the seven year old door a war. So. She's wearing like a cost play, kind of it looks like the the model for a Halloween costume. You know. Yeah, it does. My can't help, but think that this is going to become somewhat like the twenty twelve college humor parody. Have you guys seen that whole? It was like the Dora, the explorer movie, but it was a a sort of sexy reboot of the of the children's show. And it was area winter. If modern family wearing like this exact outfit and doing an an adventure with like an always speaking very sexy and everything, and it kind of gives me the same vise, even though I know this is a serious film, but I don't really know what to expect from this fill. So James bobbin who directed the Muppets is directing this movie, which gives me a little bit of hope that it won't be as bad as what I imagine that color the culture skit is because I really enjoyed the first month that movie, and I thought he did a great job with that. And that is also a property that you know had like a family friendly, sort of following to it. And I think he, he handled that material really well, I don't know. About this one. I'm not really familiar with moaners work as an actress, but Brad, I know that you've seen her in a transformers the last night. Is that correct? Yeah, and she is really the only one in that movie feels like she's giving her best performance and actually she got gives performance that's along those same believable lines as Shiloh Buffoni original transformers, and she really makes you buy into what's happening to the point that when I did my set visit for that movie, it kind of made me think, oh, they could totally built a franchise around here of this continued because she's she's really good. Mark Wahlberg at one point even called her little jaylo which is pretty, he's Denver Lopez who could actress in her own right as well. So yeah, I, I'm not necessarily interested in the door. They split movie that that was well past much out that year. I am more familiar with it because I do have a sister who was growing up around the time door. The explorer was popular, so I know probably more characters I should from that show..
