The Economy Aboard The International Space Station
"The international space station cost hundreds of billions of dollars to build for astronauts living on the space station. Though money is essentially useless, there's nowhere to spend it, but that does not mean there isn't an economy for the handful of astronauts living on board from our daily economics podcast, the indicator from Planet money, Stacey Vanek, Smith and Cardiff, Garcia explained. The economy aboard the international space Station is all about trade. This is, according to astronaut Doug Wheelock. Actually, everybody at NASA calls me wheels. I'm one of the old grizzled veterans. So the early career astronauts call me Papa Wheels. Doug Papa Wheels served as the commander of the International space Station and lived there orbiting the Earth for six months. That interesting thing is with food, of course. Doug says that aboard the space station most of the food is actually pretty bland. But every three months a big event would happen. Doug and his crew would get a shipment from Earth just before they closed the hatch on the launch pad they would throw like a bag of Fresh fruit like oranges, lemons, apples, vegetables as well. Everybody would only get one or two pieces of producer just wasn't that much of it. And so here is where the trade comes in. Doug knew that the Russians loved onions. But Doug loved fruit. Cuter. Your chicken was my commander. As said, Hey, theater. What trade An onion for do you have? Ah, Like an extra orange. He goes all you don't want your onion. Of course, the space station economy was not just about food, though. Services were also a big part of it Dug, for instance, has an engineering background And he says for him, one of his least favorite parts of life aboard the space station were all the scientific experiments. They had to do whatever their background this was just Part of what they did every day, the way out of it Economics. Doug discovered this a couple of weeks into his mission. When one of the scientists aboard the space station told him that there was a big problem, she said, Hey, the party's broken not what you want to hear aboard a space station, that's for sure. No, But Doug's background was an engineering, so he understands systems and he says, fixing things comes really naturally to him. And the scientists This woman named Shannon knew this about Doug Shannon looked at me, she said. If you fix the party Do all of your science for the rest of the day. I'm thinking like that is a deal and a half. I'll take that deal, so I got my bike tool belt called Houston and said, You know, Houston, we have a problem. The party is broken, but the real commodity on the space stations is Doug. Was Earth itself. For example, Doug says, you just want to see and talk to other humans. Even if you don't know them. You want to drop in on other astronauts video chats and see their families and talk to their friends. You don't care. Yeah, because in space, humans are a precious commodity. And I asked if there was ever bartering around this like, hey, you can join my video chat with my family for an apple. Indexes. Actually, everybody needs human interactions so much they don't really trade it because it becomes sacred when you get back to earth, Doug says. Your idea of what's valuable is changed forever. It's completely changed my whole perspective. Especially especially rain. I am just like fascinated by rain now I made I just The smell of it the sound of it and just to feel against your skin I took for granted before you know Stacey Vanek, Smith. Cardiff Garcia NPR news

Economics In Space
"The life of an astronaut. It sounds so awesome so adventurous astronaut. Doug wheelock says though most of the time it's actually pretty routine regimented. You wake up have breakfast do a bunch of scientific experiments and then you eat lunch. Then more experiments exercise dinner and go to sleep and of course there are no shops or movie theaters are banks or anything like that. So the economy aboard the international space station is all about trade. The interesting thing is with food. Of course the russians food supply is much different than our food supply. The russians is. Doug really loved the us deserts which were like brownies and cakes. And he's freeze dried packets and the american astronauts really loved the russian soups. Apparently the borscht is excellent. Excellent is a relative term. Of course doug says that aboard the space station. Most of the food is actually pretty bland. But every three months a big event would happen. Doug and his crew would get a shipment from earth and the resupply missions were a big deal remember. It costs hundreds of millions of dollars to send a shuttle to the space station. So when those shipments actually came says doug it was a very special moment and in those shipments would be like personal items letters from home loved ones. Yeah who cares. There was also this precious commodity just before they closed the hatch on the launch pad. They would throw like a bag of fresh fruit like oranges. Lemons apples vegetables as well aboard the space station. Duck says produce was like platinum. Yeah and when the shipments would right he says everybody would get together and the excitement was electric. We'd all get in the the node one. Which is our kitchen area and flowed all the fruit and vegetables. Okay so it's like christmas morning. But doug says everybody would only get one or two pieces of produce. Just wasn't that much of it and so here's where the trade comes in. Doug knew that the russians loved onions. They're great for flavoring food but doug loved fruit above everything else at. I'd say like mad. I would take an orange over this onion any day. You know fyodor. Your chicken was mike. Commander said hey fyodor What a trade an onion for do of a like an extra orangey goes all. You don't want your onion douglas's that orange trade legendary in his mind still because for doug that orange was not just a snack. It was a connection to earth. It was like his companion was funny. I had i at one point. I kind of laughed. Because i i felt like tom. Hanks and castaway with wilson. The volleyball hung onto like one orange for like it seemed like probably three weeks at a became sort of by crewmate. Of course the space station economy was not just about food though services. Were also a big part of it and different people aboard. The space station had different things. They could contribute because they had such different backgrounds. There were scientists engineers pilots so skill sets seriously skill sets became part of our commerce as well. Dug for instance has an engineering background and he says for him one of his least favorite parts of life aboard the space station. Where all the scientific experiments they had to do. Whatever their background. This was just part of what they did. Every day and the space station would typically be running more than a hundred experiments at any given moment scientific research about food plants medicines. It's just a full day and it's also part of the mission of the space station. But for doug honestly it was kind of a slog sometimes the way out of it economics doug discovered this a couple of weeks in his mission when one of the scientists aboard. The space station told him that there was a big problem she said. Hey the party's broken. I mean that does sound like a big problem. I feel panicked at least not what you wanna hear aboard a space station. That's for sure. No but doug background was in engineering. So he understands systems and he says fixing things comes really naturally to him and the scientists. This woman named shannon knew this about doug shannon looked at me. She said if you fix the party. I'll do all of your science for the rest of the day and i'm thinking that is a deal and a half. I'll take that deal. So i got my by tool bill called houston and said you know houston. We have a problem. The party's broken. Doug says actually the toilet broke quite a bit and whenever it happened whenever the toilet broke doug's economic value pretty much shot to infinity. I figured out that if you're out in space and you can fix the potty you're like lord of the universe but the real commodity on the space station's as doug was earth itself because he says when you see the whole planet against this backdrop of outerspace every day it just changes the way that you value things it just this raging ball of life in this vast desert of darkness. You know that takes root like very very quickly and it's like wow there's my planet everything ever known you know every word ever spoken. You know everybody. I've ever loved is down there and i'm not there and so that's when it really kind of strikes. You is When i talk to students and young children we talk about our favorite planet and things and i said pluto was my favorite planet. I said but then i went to space and now earth is my favorite planet. Thanks says when you're in space you start to crave all things earth and human evidence of life becomes
Doug Knust on using life to influence your book
"Doug welcome back. Once again, since this is focused for writers. Tell us a little bit about the software and the services that you used when you were writing a book. Well, I I happened upon a r e g just I'm not really sure I probably just did a search and found it and and I use that actually as the the writing tool because I was able to then publish in the in the in the different formats that I needed to pass it on to Amazon for the self-published to self-publishing really Kindle Direct publishing. I mentioned to you earlier. I used my my daughter-in-law was my editor. My son was my graphic artist. And the rest of it was kind of just you know, she was string stuff. Nothing fancy Steven dead. Okay nice, but that's great because you can make a good quality product. Even if you're not spending thousands of dollars exactly you do. I mean, you don't even need a word processor. It's all online if that's what the way you want to do it if you're familiar with if you're comfortable with a word processor or what are I'm sure that works just fine. But God, yeah, you you don't even need the word processor, right? So when you we were talking a little bit about marketing you mentioned your target audience and I loved that because I mentioned may also do middle grade fiction and it is difficult because you want to write a book and you want to give it to the seventh and eighth graders, but they are not the ones buying it. The parents are the ones buying it and the teachers the and you mentioned grandparents that you get a lot grandparents. So what are you doing to try and reach that audience? I've had I've had pretty good success targeting grandparents on Facebook. And I you know being a being a car dealer and I'm doing a little marketing doing a little marketing. I have I I know that that demographic uses Facebook and especially, you know, the last six weeks during the Christmas season that was that was really surprisingly successful for me. I've used some of the Amazon ads kind of targeting some books that had the same subject matter had some reasonable success there as well. And then you know, I I've given a choice of books. I put a little card in there asking people to go online and and give me a review and to recommend it and you know, it's the word of mouth is still a pretty dog. Good way to advertise. Yes. And so I take it even though you were on Amazon that you actually probably sell quite a few printed books. Yeah, the vast majority of my books are printed of the sales are printed books and I think again when you think about the the target end reader off the 6th seventh and eighth grade boy, not many of them are running around with an electronic reader. Most of them are if they're going to read it. I think they're going to read the whole paper version of the book agreed.

The fastest way possible. Well it's It's around helping people by providing them with a device and telecom lamb in. What's the amazing thing that happens when we do that.

We have to have a strong ethos towards people and planet with their initiatives aside from our company inner products and services but also were our our profitability. Ghosn so one is towards shareholder return. But you have to have a hard line for helping implement money to use in the community retread or the environment so you say that Which is all good Let's talk about your business a little bit and then we can go back to how you're doing those things sure so You know is era life mobile company.

HOW TO DEVELOP THE #1 SKILL TO BECOME GREAT AT SALES
"What do we do with sales people. Aren't we like professional communicators and communication a performance and we have good days bad days. Good calls bad calls and we tend to fall into traps. Talk too much. Listen to little here things. We want to hear say things. We want to say that we're gonna talk about today. We've got an expert on this. Someone who's focused on helping sales reps and he now works in enablement and i think that is an overlooked part of the company sometimes just administration. I understand that but other times it's coaching training. Developing us helping us become better. I think you going to enjoy this conversation. And let's get right into it. Hey aaron welcome to the show way getting started gives a little background on yourself fussy. Thanks for having me on massey finals. Brian videos for very very long time. You will keep your leafy suburbs somewhere to look into fine My name's erin evans. I work for an organization called global. Data will the. Uk's fastest growing business intelligence company. My history is very much in sales. Enablement be look after the south function in For global data which is about four hundred and fifty people globally. I spent the nas thirteen years. Doing it always wants to sell in sales apron before it was cool with south ableman bs. That's that's a bit about me. Yeah it kind of had where everyone kind of unified around that term. What what was it called before then at least in your experience like missed a plate spinner basically is like a bit of every here to give it to him. He'll get it done exactly. He was like you will the cats Yeah my background. At a spice. My expertise is south. Trading south coaching probably more towards south coaching than anything else big believer in coaching. But yeah many everything from you know. Being the conduit between products marketing silos all the development or the coaching. All the training. That takes place. But when you're looking at off the four hundred fifty people between to do enough different hats and often absorb different responsibilities as well. And what interested you in that. Role versus staying in product development marketing or going directly as a route. Well it was in silence. I was in south not for too long but it was. It was really interesting station. I worked for was a huge multinational corporate. I started selling. And then i started helping people while i was selling very quickly realized that i was probably about helping people. Don i wasn't selling right. I was particularly bad at selling. I'm so very quickly. They transitioned into a raw which was a management role but then they realize that actually we can sort of scope this rolling out and get you dig more support trading coaching the rest of the organization. This value dana. So a love silos obsessively not cells. I left communication in general You know what can up so happy to wear the sows hot sometimes. But not not just the prospect of your head spring of the pillow every morning and your jaw assault job is to make some better than they were yesterday. And what what more do you want to do in life right. It's like it's such a such bonds in silence as well. It becomes even more interesting sign. And what do you think that came from was something through school or sports or growing up. Or i think of. I've always been obsessed communication since i can remember. Actually since i was a very very small chart have always been really interested in communication. How people talk the psychology of talking. I realized quite quickly that he he simplify certain things. If he can say things in a certain way you can get people to buy it and you can get people to do things differently and that fascinated me and a genuine and driven by helping people making people better as well seeking if you like the people because automating doug like you have to plaster smaller. You're facing your but particularly if you like people that that it becomes great and it gets for me like where wherever we've got a kick is working with young people because we're teaching them siles right. You don't really what you're teaching them. As communication you see every aspect of their life get better for being able to communicate better For me it's such a body such a kick out of it when you see people doing better in life. it's not just better in sales. And i'm not trying to kind of desperately scrape the nobility of what i do. I genuinely feel like you make people better human beings by making the better communicating. And what are they typically bad at as far as communication is it what they say is that they don't stop saying it or is it they they not using and understanding the other person's perspective so really really good question. She is a question are really enjoy answering. Because i think there's a multitude of different things in its light as well particularly as people progressing sales. When first starting cells you've got this obstruction of thousands. Which would you pick up the phone. Just talk people nights. It's really really far from that. Listening is the biggest one. I think the probably about fifty percent of most sales problems or sales organizations problems is both internally and externally in inability to listen correct. I think on top of that. It's taking quite complex ideas and stripping awhile the nonsense making it really easy for people to see value Get into the speed about value. Really quickly people see. Value quickly is really important but also another big thing is questioning. I think i think people really sold to people buy something from themselves if you can facilitate that process re fantastic questioning. Which in large part is listening. Then you've got the kind of burdens of a real quality. Salesperson person who saw real quality communicates notice people stay in sales. They progress as they become managers coaches. Ceo's directors unite and dot communication pc son critical. And when you meet a rap how do you go about determining where they are in their development. The first thing. I check for his credibility. If someone isn't coach -able you basically get spend the next hour banging your head against a brick wall so i'd like to ask a lot of meta cognition questions to get them thinking about thinking on getting them to explain how they think about things and very quickly you can get insight into how comfortable they are so to give some practical examples to your listeners. One of the best ways of doing this sparring listening in the interview stage as sporting country. But it's to be stage because somebody's comfortable you leftover lemon for the next six months. You know however long. Isn't he get rid of him right
Report: Philadelphia Eagles are telling head coach candidates they want Carson Wentz back in 2021
"Eagles coaching search. Carson Wentz, how he relates that again for those who missed him. Might Gara follow with a report out today, saying that the Eagles are telling head coaching candidates people they're interviewing that they want to keep Carson ones they want to. Fixed Carson Wentz and that that is a big part of the coaching search. So how do you feel about that? Because Ellie now you're not to use like Are you surprised about it? That's the question. I think we've had so much talk of Will they attach themselves to Carson. Is this actually the route They're going to go? Some people have said Look, they're definitely not trading Carson. The money is too much. If they're telling head coaching, Candace, I think that one aspect you could look at it. Is this getting out because they want to make teams think they're not trading him. But presumably, I know I hate to play guess the source. But if Gary follow is saying they're telling candidates this It seems to be coming from the candidates or from someone who's interviewed, so they have no incentive to hype up the Carson Wentz trade. But you know, who knows? Maybe a candidate went thinking you'd have more of a say Heard that Carson was the guy and let people know like Whoa, They're really gonna do this. No, it Xan interesting situation, to say the least. And that when we saw it coming, I certainly I thought that after how it all went down, regardless what out with Doug? And of course, we all thought it was actually coming back when the season ended exchange quickly around here radio. But even in light of all that it just It felt like to me. There was just Too much too much baggage. It was too far gone the relationship that it would be better for everybody for Carson and physicals, toe move forward separately and change of scenery and all that type of stuff and Well, here's a question me that way. So obviously the Eagles have Carson under contract they control where he will play next year. But I've also said that and we see it no, of all the league's honestly if a player wants out, he finds his way out. I mean, it very rarely do teams make a player stay that does not want to be there, especially at such a critical position like quarterback. If the Eagles are committed to keeping Carson But Carson keeps up that he doesn't want to be here. Like what do they do? Do you forced Carson out? Do you keep him? I mean, I just It puts him in a tough situation because you know you don't your franchise guy to come in here, especially. He's already having locker room problems with the mindset of this guy got the coach. Fire doesn't want to be here and now he's leading the huddle like that's not an ideal situation to
Philadelphia Eagles head coaching search tracker
"Cody. Thanks for coming back on. I in the enemy man. How are you. I'm doing great great to be with you. I'm excited to talk some football absolutely and let's jump right in to the eagles. Coaching search here. Because more names get added to this list everyday to say that the eagles have cast a wide net would be understating it a little bit. You tweeted out. And i think it was either yesterday or today but as a recording. This on the fourteenth is was on the thirteenth. You tweeted out a whole list of names. We've got carolina offensive coordinator. Joe brady tennis offensive coordinator arthur smith san francisco defensive coordinator robert soleil tampa bay defensive coordinator. Todd bowles new england linebackers coach. John mayo kansas city quarterbacks coach mike kafka philadelphia assistant head coach do staley oklahoma head coach lincoln riley ohio state head coach ryan day. Cincinnati head. Coach luke fickle and more are coming each and every day and i know among eagles fans. You know we see this as a pretty dysfunctional team right now. We see this as an organization. That doesn't seem to know exactly what they're doing and we're skeptical as to whether or not a a really high profile coach is going to want to come here given the list of names here. Where are you at on this eagles. Coaching search as there really are just getting started right. Now yeah and we saw it just kellen more added today and obviously you know they're going to continue to cast the net and i think just in general. I think there's a little merit to the idea that you know when you compare openings. The eagles aren't A bursting with attraction just because of the situation. I mean Doug peterson clearly. If the reports are to be believed is is kind of worn down from from this run with eagles. And but i honestly don't put too much stock into this idea that they're undesirable because at the end of the day there's thirty two jobs. There's thirty two head. Coaching jobs in the nfl. We see guys in view with with teams like the jets and the jaguars every coaching cycle. Yes they sometimes have high picks so they sometimes have a lot of cap space but at the end of the day. It's nfl fell head coaching job. You can't tell me you know if you're joe brady and you're getting interest from all these teams. I mean you're not going to just not going to turn down the opportunity and so And eventually some of the spots are gonna get filled For me i mean i. I start for the eagles with looking at the offensive side of the ball. I know that's it's a big talking point. Jeffrey lurie with with you know really any eagles fan. That's been under or watching. Jeffey larry hires run. The team I i think really it comes down to are you going for You're gonna have to sacrifice somewhere. Because with somebody like joe brady even kellen moore. You're really banking on them. Being kind of an offensive mastermind and up and coming mastermind as opposed to this Person who's been around the league for years and respected and you know doug peterson even though he didn't have head coaching experience. Jeffrey loria himself talked about that emotional intelligence he talked about. Doug peterson former quarterback. In this league he had time under andy reid and so i. I think it's just a matter of where are they gonna sacrifice. Because if they go with robert. Sal the forty niners you're sacrificing. You might bring in a nice offensive coordinator with them but he may leave here for another head coaching job. And so what do they want. We're gonna find out.
Airbnb cancels and blocks inauguration week reservations
"Owns an APP called Hotel tonight, which allows you to book a hotel reservation within an hour of actually checking in. And so they also own v. R. B O, which is also pronounced ver bow. So a lot of these, all of these subsidiaries of Airbnb have canceled all the book to reservations in the Washington D. C area. In advance of the inauguration. So all reservations during inauguration week or canceled and Airbnb put out a statement yesterday, saying in response to various local, state and federal officials, asking people not to travel to D. C were announcing that Airbnb has canceled all reservations. They're going to reimburse the host. So the host who would have made money on this, they're not going to lose money, which I think is a good thing to do. Additionally, they said, they're going to prevent any new reservations in the DC area from being booked for, I think a few days at least after the inauguration. Essentially, they want to make sure and state local officials have asked from D. C at the D. C. Mayor, the Metro police members of Congress. Ah, lot of people have said, unless you have a ticket to the inauguration, which essentially means You are the only people who are allowed to be there. They don't want anybody else traveling into the city. The thing about Airbnb that's different hotels cannot do. This. Hotels are all still open. If you have a hotel reservation unless you're following, you know, unless you don't follow the mask guidelines. Then they said, You can stay in your room the whole time or you know you have to comply or leave. All the hotel reservations. They're still open. Hotels are very different from Airbnb. Hotels can't just cancel your reservation on you without repercussions. Airbnb Ken because they don't have employees. They don't own the properties that they're renting out, and there's no security and there's plenty of security at all of the hotels. So Airbnb. This makes sense because anybody who wants to bring weapons or wants to cause any kind of violence or have it. Anyone can check into an Airbnb. Most of the time, it Z. You have no contact with the person who's the host. So you can check in and really do anything you want there, no security cameras. It makes sense that they're saying, OK, we're going to black out these dates for a week. I think it's a smart thing to do. All
NFL Stadium Near Phoenix Is Now A Mass Vaccination Site
"Katherine Davis. Young from our member station, Cage's and Arizona joins us now. Good morning. Hi there. You've been to the NFL stadium and you've seen the mass vaccination site. How does it work? Exactly? Well, it looks a lot like the huge Covad testing sites that we've seen for several months. Now around the country. There are big tents set up and the cars pull through. People stay in their cars, and they get the vaccine right through the window. Have to wait a while before they drive away to make sure they don't have any negative reaction after getting the vaccine, and we've got several big drive thru vaccine sites running in our state now, But this NFL stadium is the biggest one and it's the first one that's running 24 7. I was there bright and early yesterday morning, and there were hundreds of cars there and pretty constant traffic coming in off the freeway. All I can imagine there's a lot of logistics, toe opening and operating a mass vaccination site like this one. How prepared are Arizona's public health departments? What are the biggest obstacles? Well, experts I've spoken to have said Really. No Health department was totally prepared for this level of logistics because we've really never attempted a vaccination program on this scale before. It's not just a matter of directing traffic, But you have to find enough. Qualified staff who could administer a shot. You have to you have an appointment system that can help manage thousands of people to get signed up in Arizona. That's where one of the big setbacks has been so far, for example. County opened up appointments for people over 75 along with teachers and law enforcement on Monday of this week, So suddenly we had thousands more people trying to book appointments and the website crashed. So they were just so many logistical things that states and counties are having to consider. This is such a critical time. The CDC is saying that Arizona now has the highest infection rate in the country ahead of California. Give us an understanding of just how bad the situation is there right now. It's just worse than ever. We have record cases, record deaths, record ICU bed use and hospitals say they're close to the point where they're going to need to ration care. So the governor and the Health Department are really focused on these vaccine efforts and really want to accelerate that as much as possible, but will humble is the former director of the state's health department, he says. Even if we're vaccinating thousands of people a day Viruses so out of control. We really need other mitigation measures in place before Arizona gets to a safer level of spread. The government health director are just banking on vaccinating our way out of this, But in the meantime, there's just gonna be a lot of dead bodies because those are the people that became infected. And Arizona's governor, Doug Ducey has rejected calls by state officials for stricter measures. That's Cage's Katherine Davis. Young. Thank you so much. Thank you.
Interview With Tovah P. Klein
"Joining us today in our book talk. Great to welcome the book that I'm sure there's got to help a lot of parents out there. it's called. How toddlers thrive what parents can do today for children ages two five to plant the seeds of lifelong success. Joined by my client from a new york today and dot com good to have a chance of chaplain for few minutes. How are you today. thank you for having me. i guess everybody says toddlers They're cute and everything but Those those are not easy time for for parents right. So this is a timely book. I would imagine. I hope i hope. So that's the goal. Because it can be. I think perplexing and quite a challenge. What is it about that age. Everybody goes through it. Obviously i guess some more than others. are worse than others. I should say that Is that is that the biggest issue parents have early on after maybe the first few weeks of an infant bring what happens. We have our infants and obviously we learned their communication and we comfort them. We feed them. We do a lot of holding them and taking care of them. But for the toddler who's up on their feet and certainly once they get language around the age of two. They're really separating and they're starting to realize. Hey my own person and i have my own ideas and they are not always what mommy or daddy wants but hey i really need mommy and daddy and i really love them and so they copy between this excitement about being out in the world and on their own and this real need to know that mommy or daddy are there for them no matter what and so i call it a push. Poll of the toddler years of is this their first attempts at becoming independent. And that's where you get. You know what people call wilfulness or defiance. It's really the that young child is still really baby. Saying hey i have my own ideas and that's where it starts to become a challenge for parents particularly for first time. Parents does the first child That's the first time they They have do disciplining right. Yeah i mean it's really about limits setting you know. We always talk about how much young children need from teens. Because if you have a routine that's like setting limit so for example. Mealtime we sit at a table. We eat our food at the. That's setting a limit when the child gets up. Oh you're all done. What it says to them is when we have a meal. We sit at the table. We don't walk around with food and you don't even have to go so far as discipline when you have a lotta routines routines around getting dressed. Bath time dinnertime. Anything that you do. Every day needs a routine. Because that's what helps children know what's going to happen and feel that they have some control almost a Security and they know what it's coming up next most exactly and they don't. They have no sense of time at this age. I think it's hard for adults any of us to really understand what it would be like to not have a sense of time because we look at our watches or we look at the day of the league. And we say oh. What do i do monday. Whereas young children have no capacity to tell time so those routines give them that organization right and you read. It makes them feel safe. All i know. What's next what what i was doing to remember when i was a little kid. Yeah you're right time As much slower than really an aspect of it to you know you know. That's what that's supposed to delight of. Toddlers is live in the moment so when you're in a joyful with their child they're right in know they're like you know playing with something and their joyous and sharing it with you but they don't think about. Oh i need to stop this in a few minutes and move on so the downside of living in the moment and not having the time is it's very hard to move from one thing to another like finish playing the weekend leave for school is very hard for them from your research talking to. I'm sure many many parents what what's the biggest mistake you see the parents dealing with that age group biggest mistake that any of us make particularly with our firstborns. But we can do this with any child is thinking that they're older than they are so our expectations become much more than what the child can actually do and part of that. Is you know once. Our children have language and can really talk and communicate better. First of all there's relief for us. I think there's relief for the child as well. I can communicate a little bit more but we start to think they're much older so one moment you're having a nice conversation saying remember when we go to dinner at that restaurant used to be quiet. Trust own yes. I know that the restaurant but then you get their now cancelled. Still can't keep quiet. That's because they're two or three or four and we think that they're much older than they are and so we kind of bring our expectations down a bit their level. We actually treat them differently in a more supportive way. And that's really what my book is valid. You understand something about how low development is but this is really also a really important crucial time kind of back off a little. Say okay. I understand what my child's doing and just switching parenting techniques. A little bit can really make life that much easier with a toddler.
Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud
Social Commerce: Walmart's Plans For TikTok
"The pandemic as if it wasn't hard enough to manage that you're also have made a play for tiktok along with oracle. What's the latest on that we've had an ongoing conversation with bytedance for a while. Now and basically what we would love to do is to play. A role in the e commerce fulfillment payment and some to some degree advertising aspects of that relationship so the national security concerns in the us and china. Those will be resolved by government officials in oracle not walmart. We're focused on the front end. And how users might be able to interact with tiktok and when they see something they want to buy. Do it in a simple fund seamless way and have a good back and experience because of our fulfillment capabilities. So that's an interesting relationship that could end up impacting more than just the united states. Now it's pretty cool. When would a new form of marketplace. When would that the live is that within the year. Can you bill de quickly. But there are forms of social commerce. That are happening already around the world. You can see that maybe most prominently in china but whether it's tiktok or facebook instagram. In some ways google the digital front ends that exists in our case. We have one with our app. In addition to the ways that we interact with others will become kind of seamless people as they want to buy merchandise and have that experience. So i think you can start to see some of the signs of that today with marketplaces that are being built in. What with what. We're building. But i think it will progress. It'll become more pronounced across various channels and become more pronounced geographically as it grows.
Walmart: Keeping Staff And Customers Safe
"Follow you on instagram. And i have for for some time. What are you telling employees. You have just following your account. You're still you've been going to stores talking with employees. What have you told them about their interactions with with consumers. I imagine they've been scared to get up close and personal with consumers. I think the steps that they are taking and that we've taken as a company of helped social distancing wearing facial coverings using plexiglas washing hands. All those things. It's a combination of things that have to be done to keep people safe and our associates have done a great job in that respect. And when i'm visiting stores and clubs and distribution centers during this period of time i'm basically maybe just two things one is. Thank you there being so courageous so dedicated really do have a heart to serve other people on those that need to take leave because they may have a pre existing condition or need to take care of their family. The company has lee policies. That enable people to do that so quite a few of our folks have gone out on leave but the vast majority of them are coming to work. And making it happen. We've also hired quite a few people during the course of the year Globally last number. We shared publicly is that we've hired over half a million people vast majority of those being the united states to help offset the demand pressure that we're feeling and take the place of those walmart associates at have gone out on leave so the first thing i'm doing is saying thank you and the second thing is asking. What do you need. A what more can we do to help. Keep you safe help. Keep customers safe and serve them effectively and the number one answer getting back right now is help us within stock. We need more inventory back to your original question but as it relates to safety people feel like we've done everything we can think of to do at this moment. Now we'll keep learning and if there's something more we can do to help keep people safe. We'll do it

It takes 30 days for the policy to take effect. What insurance If you live in a flood from area there quicker, you'll be protected from potentially large losses from a flood to say all along Washington waters.

"doug i" Discussed on The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
"They need to understand why you're making the change allowed of leaders skip that important communication. They don't explain why we're going to take this risk why we're going to make this change and then last I think a lost art is experimentation and testing. And Doug I. Think what you're describing is usually what happens right? I say we're going to make this big pivot. And everybody freaks. The world's GONNA add ban. What does that Guy Smokin, right Oh my gosh. She's GonNa make his putting our. Whole business at risk, you would never do that. If you're a savvy experienced leader, what you would do is you carve out a piece of the business you tested. You'd experiment you'd get it right, and then you would gradually roll that out in a methodical rigorous way that is a lost art i. believe I believe it usually gets caught up either we're going to do something or not going to do something so I think you build trust with customers and you build trust with employees and shareholders by doing this in a very methodical. Experimentation way because as you know, even your businesses evolved so much since you started it, you never get it right the for ever. I don't even think ended. You'd think you'd get it right the one time I think you're you're constantly shifting and evolving if you're not, you're going to die. And that's what I think. It's the essence of it is I believe. Organizations Fall into this either or either. We're going to go were doing nothing and you don't have to commit to going big you have to commit to get started. And believe as a leader, you need to convince people why we're making the change, but then you have a follow up with a plan that makes good sense that balances the risk and the reward well I conversation recently with Kip. Ten? Founder of the container store and you know this is eight hundred million dollar organization almost billion dollars in revenue that these guys do and they talk about you mentioned you stay a shareholder and he had said something about you know and then you also mentioned in the same breath you're talking about the people within your organization, which are really your your your stakeholders for your for your.

When in truth is not that unique. They sold a lot of them well I don't. Think. I don't know I think. I think you need to come. Maybe spend a little time. Appear with US income for drives. These things man the drive them up here they drive. You Know How many options the Ford GT head four four. Yeah, does yours have all foredeck? No it doesn't the the rest of it. No, you didn't want to get the. I'm going to sound like a Porsche guy now. You didn't want to get the Stereo because you've got the stereo. It put a giant seeker between the seats, and it blocked your view into the engine. For Yeah. So Macintosh makes a good stereo though it's an amazing stereo, everybody says it's incredible, but I was Carl didn't get it, and if I were buying the car I wouldn't have gotten into what. What Stereo does yours have is just put in. Some bullshit had unit. What did it come with some regular? That coral had put in which was hooked up to like an old school ipod. Okay, so I was wondering if it was like an explorer. Good question. What was the stock radio? If you didn't get the Macintosh ever seen without a Macintosh? I don't know because the people got the macintoshes obviously kept it, but people who have upgraded to like Bluetooth audio. Yeah, I don't know I've never seen one with the stock radio. my. Lambo has got the Stock Alpine. CD's. Five Is that true had it had CD's might. Lambeau is the first car to ever come with a CD player nineteen. Alpine partner with it, and it was a five thousand dollar option in nineteen seven to option. It's a two options on the coon Taj Wing Stereo. The is your only options that seems about right for Lamborghini, and what the original owner of all those cars in Florida. He got both of those. The yet if you ever wanted if you're on a fucker, mind, you can. You're one of the few people I would trust to to play. Mine is really good. Mind fucking runs minds up minds a real runner it's been. It's been behaving very very well recently. It's very happy car. what Else Zach! Let's bang to more right. To do. Is it worth it to buy a decent Z? Thirty two three hundred Z X. Turbo. Grant or should I get a rough one and fix it out twenty five grand? That's a Lotta money. Now I would say no for twenty five grand you're. You're really running up on skyline money and you'd rather have skyline every day, and and you could have of a two thousand civic SL apparently. Get halfway to a what was ninety nine. Do you think that was bought by one of those like conglomerates? Like a fund. Raising. The hedge funds regards. You make a great point by the way Scotland is what I would do for that money because I think I bought and sold in our thirty, two, twenty three. Twenty three, twenty, three, I imagine there's still about that money and drive better than Z thirty The market is up from them. The Their v equivalent car that you bought and sold for twenty three would probably trade for like thirty two thirty three right now. The market's up, but still it's a way better car way more interesting and the RB engine and those cars rule I'd love. Would you get another skyline? I might get an skyline wanted I just wish it was left-hand-drive i. just don't like I. Don't love driving right hand drive cars frequently. Yeah I think it's a fun. It's a fun distraction on your errands. My celicas really fun. You're DELICA. No, because I can't find a sock, one or even something close to serve. You WanNa drive mine mine just wheels on it other than mine is an ice maker in it. What no mine is the DELICA. Exceed Star Wagon? Turbo D so minds a low roof. It doesn't have the crystal light, roof. Roof it does have it has swivel captain's chairs, the dual zone air conditioning and it's four by four low range turbo diesel, but it doesn't have the ice maker, and it doesn't have the glass roof but I knew. I need to find last maker cry because those are to me. We have an ice maker. What are you doing? You're driving around in a delicate with no ice maker. Don't Nice made while you drive. I've never seen the ice maker. Sean Scott One Ashley Morris at top rank has a has a glass roof. He's got Chris. But. Because they also did those dance. A glass roof lifted bans. The ice maker Mines, fucking men minds got forty eight thousand kilometers on it. It's fresh just we just did the mate. I just hit. The major service to doesn't who served it. Not, someone I'd go back to. Somebody that was recommended and I wouldn't go back there. The service the vehicles find the customer service was lacking. Hey, if you don't mind me, asking, where do you have? That vehicle registered South Carolina? Okay south. Carolina Yeah I really WanNa get an artist. Two and I got to have this conversation in the next couple of months pursue it. Yeah I mean you can do the carb thing for ten K.. Yeah like they did on the. COM- that takes like six months. I've heard it's not the money. It's the backup. It's the backers literally one shop license to do it in the state which. GNK or whatever they call them in Santa Ana. So everybody wants to get their shit done. They got along. They got along lines. People with deep pockets like there were six by sixes where this when this got done that kind of thing, so he me with my rs two, but the problem is also they'd have to put cats on it. I think it would Power so it's probably easier to Montana or South Carolina I'll call up your mom. Do. You still got a number you. Know Yeah no I mean look for it's for a six by six I I get it, but for a for a fifteen thousand dollar fucking chip. You know what I mean. You'RE GONNA double the price of the vehicle for A. Legitimate reason that I feel you have some one. A person has to register outside of the state in which they live is if you're going to do the smog like I think tax avoidance is just a bunch of BS, and that's all illegal, anyway in my opinion, but if you're GONNA, if you're gonNA, violate smog I'm Kinda more on board with that I'm like. Yeah, that's like a car. It's easiest. Your crime is totally okay mic. You Bad. My crime is all right. All Right? Who's is the lucky recipient of the last question of our fucking old studio and we have medium spender MD Kay Kyser. He says he's the. Kid Bought Matt Hart Agrees Mercker Four T. I think it's bad. It's just. A few years back. Is there a review where the driver of the car? You're in change your opinion of the car more than you had itself like when you went into it..

"Mid August. Oh, it might be okay by then I would keep your resume Massachusetts still have short-term rentals band right now so like. A Lot's going to have to happen between now and then. Yeah, so we're doing this adventure drives thing you know Rob Ferretti's No snow stickers rally. It's brilliant, and so this is supposed to be an event third week in July that starts in Seattle, goes into Canada and then comes back down into Jackson Hole, and so they are determined to not cancel the event, so it's still on, but there's a there's a Canada Canada route and a no candidate route caretaker. GotTa, do yeah, and my wife and I are driving a Lamborghini. which which is a car that morally I'm conflicted about, but as something you're gonNA put thirty five hundred miles in two weeks on I mean. Is there a better option I? Think? Right? That's that's A. Choice interesting. I hope it works what a what a summer it's going to be feel so bad. Talk about Nantucket I feel so bad for all the businesses you know. It's funny because all the people up there. Who are your rounders just complained bitterly about the tourists. The me a little different this year. Let's see how you feel on the Jersey Shore. Let's see how you feel in the Hamptons with notorious. When you're restaurants aren't making any money in your. You know that. It's tough I. Really feel bad for these people. There's a great community up there. It'll. It'll be interesting to see what happens. Cons right because it's like this tourist that show up and fuck your town where they were. They're assholes or they just You know like A. Tourist Destination Hawaii Tahiti like places like that and then tuck target and then, but that is like a huge part of the comment, but you can also, you can want the tourism without allow the problems tourism. Of course, and that would be nice for all of us. I mean when I go up there I. Don't encounter people. They go rent a house and like my closest friends, and we all just kind of go to the beach and drive my truck and all that but. I don't know it'll be sad to for for everybody who's in any place that relies on travel or patrons or anything like that? It's just a really tough time, so the virus cases on Nantucket a few yeah, but very few, and then I think two weeks since the last one was diagnosed. They've had only one death, but you know what the problem is getting there. I didn't realize this, but Massachusetts is like the number, two or number three state with cases per capita, but absolute, so like masses taken it really seriously, and frankly I'm a little nervous about landing at Logan. Switching planes and all that that's not really necessarily want to be doing. We'll. Lined like. On Air and dry out. and. That's actually not the stupidest thing I hadn't thought of that until this moment. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Hampshire's close. It's like an hour drive to New Hampshire. Flooding good, that's not that's not the stupidest ideas ever heard bro. You're three and a half. Million subscribers private jet San Diego Jiu five Bro. In the questions I'm sorry I. got to tell you about this so private private planes. Fly I flat fintech every every several times, a year and a coach ticket is like five hundred bucks on a first class ticket is like a thousand bucks, and so I was thinking you know. A private plane would really be nice because you can go directly, and I was like. If a first class ticket is a thousand bucks. Private plane really be I was like two grand three grams couldn't be that naive can. Play! The you know what it actually costs us. I'm. My privilege is GONNA come right out here, but I do know what it. It's fucking. Yeah, but go ahead. Fifty thousand dollars. For one way. Yeah I think I think that was a one way on. Yeah, yeah, that sounds that sounds right. PJ is about ten thousand and our to fly. So sitting here like Oh shit, I can do it for two grand. Maybe it makes sense. No truly no idea that it was expensive I. IT might not be running anymore. What's the? What was the thing that Nick used? Jet. Sweeter jet sweet was an APP where you would get. You could use a subscription plan where you would get a seat on a jet I mean it'd be a sixteen person jet with sixteen people on it, and that would be. That's more like if you used it every month like a timeshare, it would be more in line twenty five hundred three K., a ticket. That kind of thing now if you're booking the jet. Hoping. Listen. It seemed reasonable to me. When so why isn't there why? Don't. Why does an interim between spending a thousand bucks on I five seat and spending fifty? Various jets, the jets thing is is the that's it where you book seats on a private plane and there's also Jet Blue has some interim thing where they fly like Boeing. Business jets and stuff where every seat is first class and stuff Yeah, yeah, they they do. Private jets is real is real real next level and I've tasted the littlest spin, and it's once you get that, do you? You gotta you gotTa. Get away from there. Otherwise. You'RE GONNA. Get Addicted to that shit real quick! How next level it was I think got a four GT. I can fly private. No, no, you gotTA. Have you gotta like own the factory? Where you need to be. Factory. That made all the rubber gaskets for that car car. That's the whole thing, yeah? World it's another level. Ignorant that I'm like I'm saying this, but I just don't know that much about airplanes, and so I didn't really realize how expensive Zach have a fact. Check. Someone said jet sweet just for bankruptcy due to cook. So you might be able to get even cheaper on the ground floor of the reward. Could by plane for twelve bucks because they went bankrupt, he was like. I don't know what to do with. Planes Class. These planes must be. It's not the. Service it's the I mean even I mean yes, the plane is crazy, but it's the it's the service and it's and there's an hourly flight. And then there's you got you full time. That's that's. That's three full time employees if you buy a plane. Are Two or three. If you if you have a flight attendant, but yeah, no planes are just another. Yeah, yeah, I mean. Even you gotta be attending. On private planes yeah they do they own private plane. Yes, they do if it's only on the really dope ones, but they do. Yes, it's. We're talking about small I can't get up and get their own. Outlook I've been on. Homes I gave him. What's going on right now? Talking about private jets horrible, but it's I didn't pay for. It wasn't my plane. What do you want to tell you mazing?

"Man. He's been given the placebo pill. Problem is I just don't the algorithm for me. It was an experiment to though. Keep in mind because no, I don't think any other car. Youtubers had started a second channel at that point, and so I wasn't really sure. If this approach was going to be any better than your approach I just figured I'd give it a shot. Yeah well. You you fucking one that one you definitely doubt it worked out, but it's also for me. Then became like crab. I have to film videos now for this thing right? I was using it for a week and it's like Oh crap I gotta feed this piece. But. I just I didn't know anymore. That's and that goes back to our problem that we're discussing before with the algorithm. You're kind of. It's kind of your master. You don't really know. What is the right move? And also it changes I mean I can point on my spreadsheet to a couple of periods where I guarantee. If I talked to someone who is responsible for algorithm stuff that day there was a change because I can look at certain stuff and see a certain pattern and then. And then there was that pattern didn't emerge after that yeah. Hammer, that's the problem with yeah. So, so all right, so we finally it took us I guess a two years to figure this out because we're fucking stupid. We have our heads in the sand, but. But. WE'RE SPLITTING WALL removing. Moving studios during this time. We are eliminating a hundred percent of the podcast videos from the main channel, and Zach has spent the last several months re uploading them to a new channel which is called the smoking tire podcast that is the name of the new channel can subscribe yet is. It is not okay I will. You're going to hear a lot of me on social media. Trying to because here's the thing when you make a new channel. You can't go live until you hit a certain number subscribers so I need everybody to subscribe to it before because we gotta do live shows on it, so so so we need to get subscribers to it quickly, so I'm hoping that it fixes or improves our algorithm problems because the real problem that I'm having Doug Right now is I start to go through these numbers for new channel. Is it just is a is a? There's not enough percentage of our subscribers getting and watching our our stuff. And I can't. I can't find a real scientific reason. Why other than the differential between podcast views car review? That'd be the only thing I would guess that. There was an because that's the problem. Here's what I would guess happen. You were doing car reviews whatever you would do a podcast. It would send the podcast video out as a notification. See it and say I. Don't WanNa see the PODCAST I. Don't WanNa see the car reviews, and then that tells youtube this guy whatever percentage of people are just ignoring that notification, and then the same thing happens the next week. Then suddenly your view traffic out. That's my desk. Though it's worth noting I'm not I don't know. You know well, but you don't, but you spend time studying, so which is which looked at yours but I. I don't know that for me. I don't know any of this stuff. That's the thing. No one really knows. We just do our best to kind of. Hope that it goes in that direction. But that that would be what I would guess is gone. We'll either way I mean. Look what we're doing. And so these are the things so anyway. Next time we do show, it's going to be on a new channel and it's going to be in a new studio so that is going to be the thing with new cameras with new cameras. All Dude Doug. Wait till you see this fucking Shit Dude. This is the coolest. Zach went up to went up to the late night play-set podcast so these. These guys are some portion people that I know. They bought David Letterman's desk and set up from the cellar. This this look at this picture. He's GonNa. pull up this way. Nicole Ryan they're lovely couple. They live in the valley and they do this. Their husband wife and they do this little talk. Show from there apartment and just pull the whole screen Zach, whatever and the fucking full-sized pictures are not working, but look this is their. This is in their living room. It looks like a talk show set. Jay He's A. He's like a Hollywood. Set Designer, so we've got the lighting and all this stuff right so we're not getting Letterman's desk in the news studio, but they they're recording setup is the shoot it on iphones and the switching thing is an ipad pro. They literally shoot on six IPHONES. That's their podcast setup almost everything. The cameras are so good. Yeah, but this whole rig that they have is alive. Switching broadcasting tool like we're literally running this off, Mac pro right now, and we are upgrading to an IPAD. That's crazy. That's so. Should I do you now? We're going to shoot net right now where we use LOGITECH Webcam and and they're terrible, but they're reliable. We're upgrading IPHONE. Eleven's with each phone has three lenses, and so the IPAD you can live switch between the lenses, so each camera you do has a tight and a wide on it. How crazy is that right so awesome? So what's the point of at this point unless you're doing something really insane like real TV movies? What's the point of not using? I thought you know well. Yeah I didn't we didn't know what the limiting technology was, but apparently there just isn't any anymore so now. A year ago, you know. He said that it was like. And now it's sputter smooth amazing. At the time, but I just couldn't believe what I was. Just going to be eliminating so many wires in the new studio there's going to be. Stealthily mounted on the wall. It's GonNa. Be Awesome interesting. What a world we live at two. It's crazy man. This is so great legal aid, and this means and some levels so civilized. You know what I mean. Another level Zach The people have a lot to say. Let's see if we can get through a few of these. Before. Doug gets bored of US and goes back to his famous life. I'm just. Kidding! Dude, I'm I I really was hoping that this summer was going to be the summer. We met up in Kentucky, but I. Don't think it's going to happen you sandy. But.

It wasn't a little later than maybe even ninety two or Ninety, two. Yeah, they kept. They stuck with this for a while. So let me just say. We decide Craig Craig. Lieberman, the fast and the furious car coordinator. And he owned that Maxima from fast and furious. That does the big front wheel drive burnout? When was the last time you saw a Maxima SC with a manual gearbox in operational condition and you know what sucks about that. They were at that time. They were the coolest damn thing. Shit those cars. They were hot. fucking on new time. That's a good question I mean. You truly years. I think that's a good idea for a show. And I don't even see them here. That's a good show name. When was the last time? Isn't that a good name for two? It's a good premise for a show you still show. When was the last time you saw? And then you present this weird fucking car? It's a good premise. You can have that one Doug My. Thank you. Ask for royalties. He does very well. Two points. For All of these, is not you're. A Nice Lumina like that they're. They're probably a few in Michigan. You know, but. Doesn't exist. They know about the Beretta at the Beretta Factory. Here. If you want to do on I, bet it would be a fun one you and me we go. We go to Italy and we go to. The Beretta Shotgun factory where they build the guns. They have been since the seventeen hundreds. And when GM started building the Chevy Baretta the Beretta Shotgun companies sued them for trademark infringement. It was settled out of court, and as a show of good faith, GM sent to Beretta's to Italy. which are now on display with under fifty miles on them and they Beretta Shotgun Museum that almost seems like a show of bad faith. The British Shotgun factory should have the same signs. The corvette where it's like precision is important because. Precision never ask. Those cars as target to test. You know what's funny. Though about those cars, they everyone agrees they were craft then and even the people who have preserved them like. If you're on, there's all these pages that I'm obsessed with like underappreciated survivors in Redwood and if you're in those groups, the people people who have hard like that are real proud of them, but they all know that they were crap then, but it's starting to become this thing where. Let me. Tell you something if I saw Nice Lumina Z. Thirty four like that, I would turn my head way more than if I saw another four hundred thousand percent dude when I went to Monaco for the Graham.

Doug I WANNA say it was in haggerty about. It was really strange trend that the more four GT's come to auction the higher the value and sale price of all of them go. It's opposite Opposite of what you think it's the inverse of. Yeah? Because, then the story gets pumped up again and people. It's like advertising it could. It's not necessarily causation. It could be correlation and it's also. It followed sort of the track of the Ford Verse Harari Movie, So we gotta wait to see if it holds people all the time coming up to me and saying Oh, that's the car from the movie Oh. That's the new version of the car from movie. Whatever that that's certainly added a little bit of kind of you know allure prestige to it that it didn't have before definitely. Yeah, yeah, yeah, so what you've been driving recently. Tell me about some fucking weirdness. Bro! I wrote on my list. He Suzu v across. The across, but I'm GONNA. Tell you have we discussed it I now only greatest carver made the G. Five hundred Cabriolet. I do like that the Cabriolets the only g wagon that I like it's really I think it's the worst one by a pretty wide Marja, but worst is best. Well in this case. It's the best because it's the worst for sure. I think it's one of the great stupid cars ever built, but I love it. It's so cool. It's a power top. Just push a button and the going down. I didn't know was power top. That's got to be really complicated. I bet you can total that thing out if the cylinders go. I worry about. Shot. There's a couple of shops that have have worked on them so if I have to ship it somewhere. Yeah, but Oh my God. It's such a cool truck and you imported that one to write you. A dealership in Newport beach, not only imported it, but they carb it, so there's only ten of these that have been carb certified, so it's registered bone California. And two of them have left the state and the Sensi last Carfax ball so I think we're down to maybe eight so I've got this thing. legit California plates on it and I just think it's the coolest thing in the world. The OATMEAL OH, ugly. Ugly. Ugly portions are so strange and. An amigo pulls up and it's like man what happened to you like? chopped, those Volkswagen losses. It looks like you did. My insurance guy called it in a zoo Amigo that went to law school. which I think is fantastic. I actually got a picture one the other day next to a Daihatsu Rocky which one of my great moments of the year. That's a real shit box at Daihatsu. That's a terrible terrible car. No, the G. Five hundred. Cabriolet is the Alan Dershowitz of Susie Amigos. What. Most Polish of a group that just shouldn't, but you know what I think it's look at. If you cover the front half of it with your hand. It just looks like a regular bag. Then you put your hand off. You're like Oh, and the top is so funny because it like it's so rare. That Mercedes just flagrantly doesn't give a fuck about something. They usually have the veneer of trying even if They. Were like you're not supposed to put the top up ever. Decide adorable that little siphoning. Better with the top up and down. I doubt it looks worse, somehow it. Looks like you're wearing. You're going to the gathering of the Juggle Os with that hoodie on. Top. It looks like it's wearing a toupee. seriously. Look at. That looks like A. With a triangular window in it, for some reason, a very small an after for sure that like the the diameters of the curve on, don't match at all. It looks like a hand cut window, and you know what's really great about this thing. Doug is a you've bought stupid cars for entertainment value before and I. Respect you for it. Your Hummer was the worst Hummer in the history of hammers. It was so bad and I thought why you did it and you. March yourself on that one, but this one has all the stupid of that except it's actually very you. Right. Kind of funny because. When people are into cars and they get money. They usually go by Ferrari's, but the problem is when you do that like seven years ago. I only bought because my viewers right. But when people who are into weird cars yet money now that rarely happens most weird car, people their content, owning Saab nine hundreds and. Waste all their time on Ebay, looking for parts, but occasionally someone who's in the weird cars the it's enough money to go out and pursue. Other cars and what we end up getting it turns out is not Ferraris. It's more expensive, weird car. So I got acquitted of Rocky except for a guy who made a little money into. Like what can I am on a Ferrari three sixty budget? But what can I buy? It's horrible and ugly. Will you know? What normal cars I just don't and I don't want fast. Cars not have the GT that's it. I'm good with exotic cars now I WANNA pursue. Weird crap and this g wagon is that I'm so about it. You know myron right Myron Vernice. You Must Myron I mean he's he is literally the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of weird cars. Here's a guy who bought a weird car. Many years ago, that turned out to be a super rare prototype. Weird car, the first convertible nine eleven porsche ever made it was a nine zero. One convertible prototype sells it for over a million dollars and cannot afford or does not want to I don't WanNa say cannot afford that true doesn't want to pay the taxes on his earnings, and he has to flip them into other cars. So, what does he do? He buys fifty fucking weird. Barn with them, and he has every time we do show and I say some obscure facts obscure thing. He sends me a picture that he owns the car. That has that weird thing in the garage. Crazy. That's the world I wanNA live in I. Don't care about I drive all these. McLaren's and stuff, and they're fun, and it's Great. They really are and I. Think if I didn't do that. I probably would pursue some of them, but I would rather go for some cars. That I'm just never going to get totally. You'RE NOT GONNA. See G cab drive around. No, that's a really and I. think that's a really safe. It's because it's it's a safe and it's a good investment. I think so rare the five hundred being as reliable with available parts so much parts sharing you know easily serviceable. It's really about that top man. That top could fucking hoes you on that one. It could yeah. Video just make a video I think that'd be top hey. You can go to shop and they'll remake the top for you and no one will know that it's not oem because the OEM.

You know that it is ready by the way we're going to give you our stats over the last few years in a few weeks here you're really GonNa lie and we really done well betting NFL football on this show and I. think that's why we have so many listeners. I think that's why so many of you are so engaged because you know over time not every week, and not every whatever, but you know two thousand eighteen I think. I was down nine units but overall. Done very well on the show, so hopefully we can keep that up in twenty twenty.

Eastern time you can check him out on twitter at Doug Espn, and then only after the first time. I talked to him that I find out that he and I had something in common and then to bring him on today's show I said Hey Steve. We're going to have this Guy Doug. Come on the show today and he's like I love Doug so evidently. We're all friends here. We all know each other. His name is Doug because. Doug Doug Kazillion or Kazarian? Good question. I haven't quite figured it out over these years, but it all seriousness either one goes It's kind of look combination of balls to be honest, so it's you don't want to be too sharp on the ear, but it's not air either so it's kind of in between. Yeah okay, that makes sense. I like that explanation. So I'm going to take a step back, I bring in Steve and Steve. Why do you love Doug, like I think I feel like we have to explain that before we dive into some of the stuff. Why well Doug, because he is uniquely qualified to take at the torch. If you will from mainstream sports and discuss sports bedding, because so many other so called experts that have gotten into discussing sports betting Doug really understood it when he was in Vegas embraced it, so it's not something that's the bone up on. It's something that he has always done in my opinion. You're your retort. You both you with quite introduction, so thanks to both of you, but That's very nice, says it. They do that. Say that yeah.

"doug i" Discussed on How to Money
"You'll reach financial independence much faster from your military skills and had goes to military families as well because although the military service members the one who maybe suffers the most deprivation and lack of creature comforts. There's plenty of stress and plenty of adversity on a military family as well and that will turn your people in military family into resilient family members who can meet you on that goal for financial independence a company on a journey. Yeah let's Doug I can kind of speak to that from experience. My father was actually in the army and being deployed for multiple years. There's something that you learn as a as a family and kind of pitching and even even as a kid kind of pitching in to that family mission and what it is that you're you're setting out to accomplish so I hear you there. I want to talk about the Gi Bill. Though it's been around since one thousand nine hundred eighty four but for our listeners out there can you explain specifically what it is and why this is such a major benefits such a great program for members of the military and as well as some of the eligible veterans out there the GI bill came out in the forties as everybody from World War. Two was coming back home and the whole idea was. Oh My Gosh. All these service members are GONNA come back and we. WanNa give them skills and we WANNA help them find jobs. So we can rebuild the American economy and start selling stuff to rebuild the rest of the world that was destroyed by the war so that's continued throughout the years. There's been various implementations of the Gi bill over the last seventy five years the latest one. The one was passed into law after nine. Eleven is probably the best. Gi Bill benefits ever. Not only are you giving an affordable rate at almost just anybody just about any university or college or Certification Program that you might be interested in but you're also able in most cases to be eligible for housing allowance which helps make it much more affordable to attend those classes. Yeah the housing allowances is a really good deal. In fact I think there's there's probably a few veterans who are more attractive housing allowance than to the actual degree or the job skill. Because you've earned the right to use your Gi bill benefits and to go to school and learn something new. And maybe it'll help you out in your your next goal in life even if you're enlisted and didn't get your degree finished. I mean that's through the GI. Bill is aimed even if you already have a degree all this is your chance to go out for an advanced degree or a career change or an MBA or whatever goal you have in mind and one of the advantages of the post nine eleven gi. Bill is that it is now transferable. You can take the benefit you've earned and you can assign it to your spouse or to your kids and they can go out. They're going to Greece now. This is a military department of defense benefit actually comes from the veterans administration but as a federal benefit and there's also many state benefits as well One of the examples is if you separate from the military and you're a California resident. There's a program called cal hats which will enable you to send your children to California State University on scholarship and that is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on the size of your family. So there's not just the GI bill educational benefits but there's also the state benefits and using benefits. Intelligently allows you to transfer on your family members to make sure you can give them either apportioning. Gi Bill or all your Gi. Bill you can be flexible and balancing that out. You've got a certain fixed amount of benefits and you get to make the decisions on how their portion among your family members will. I'm so thankful that exists because that is a necessary benefit right. That's the way we should take care of our military service members and I love to the state benefits because that's something. That often doesn't get disgust and something that we don't point people towards so yeah everybody listening. Who is in the military who doesn't know that there are also state benefits? They should be looking for those to see what they can take advantage of as well and Doug. Let's talk about the retirement plan. That's offered to military members as well military members have access to one of the greatest retirement systems. I think on the face of the earth. Tsp The thrift savings plan. So it just. It's such a wonderful retirement savings system. Can you recommend how sh- military member should think about the TSP and how they should be investing for the future inside of it absolutely and that's the military equivalent of your 401k. The thrift savings plan is a federal program for Federal Civil Servants as wells service members military servicemembers part of the federal system. And it's just like any other 401k. It is one of the world's largest collections of passive index funds. And it used to have some of the world's lowest fees they're still very competitive fees around zero point zero three percent and zero point zero four percent now better than what you're paying back in the eighty s and that's only been around since two thousand two I had. I had a whole five months throw savings plan before I retired from active duty so as somebody who missed out on ESPN and still manage to make financial independence I would say that. It's a rocket sled to.
