A highlight from Mindful Gifting for Caregivers and Dementia Navigators
"Remember the joy of unwrapping a thoughtful gift that was just the right fit for you? Well, being a caregiver doesn't diminish that need, it just changes it. Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming Elizabeth Miller from the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast, who brings with her an array of gift giving ideas for caregivers and those living with dementia. Our conversation zigzags through a spectrum of unique gifts, focusing on both physical items and shared experiences. Welcome to Fading Memories, a podcast for caregivers of loved ones with dementia. I'm your host, Jennifer Fink. My mom had Alzheimer's for 20 years, and when I went looking for answers, I had to start a podcast to find them. Join me as we navigate the challenges of dementia caregiving together. This podcast is your beacon of support and empowerment. Let's share our experiences, find solace, and discover the strength within us. Get ready to embark on a transformative caregiving journey with Fading Memories. If you're looking for additional advice, be sure to sign up for our weekly email newsletter. It's brief, gives you great advice, you can read it in less than five minutes, and you know where to find the link. It's in the website, on the show notes. We're working on subscriber -only information and specials, so you're not going to want to miss out. When I learned that despite eating as healthy as possible, we can still have undernourished brains, I was frustrated. Learning about neuro reserves, Relev8, and how it's formulated to fix this problem convinced me to give them a try. Now I know many of you are skeptical, as was I. However, I know it's working because of one simple change. My sweet tooth is gone. I didn't expect that, and it's not something other users have commented on, but here's some truth. My brain always wanted something sweet. Now fruit usually did the trick, but not always. One bad night's sleep would fire up my sugar cravings so much they were almost impossible to ignore. You ever have your brain screaming for a donut? Well, for me, those days are gone. I believe in my results so much that I'm passing on my 15 % discount to you. Try it for two or three months and see if you have a miraculous sweet tooth cure, or maybe just better focus and clarity. It's definitely worth a try. Now on with our show. Hello, hello, you guys are gonna love today because we're talking about gifts and gift giving for people with dementia. And it's a perfect day to discuss that because today is my daughter's birthday. So I would wish her a happy birthday, but she's not a listener. So what I will do is thank Elizabeth Miller from the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast for coming on and sharing her gift guide and her knowledge. So thanks for joining us today, Elizabeth. Thank you for having me, I'm excited to be here. Awesome, I know we haven't done one together. I was on your show a while ago, but you haven't been online. Yes, vice versa. Yes, I love Fading Memories and I love that it's part of the whole care network. Definitely, so. We're all part of the same family. So you've been podcasting for six years as well, right? Yep, I'm in my sixth season. I launched in November's National Family Caregivers Month. So happy National Family Caregivers Month, everybody. And that was a launch. I try to do some kind of special every year, but I think I don't really have a launch this year. Just keep on keeping on. I've been really focusing on the speaking part of my business and really trying to get out there as far as reaching different companies and organizations to scale the caregiving support. Yes, it's definitely something we need. So where should we start? Do you wanna start with gifts for caregivers or gifts for people living with dementia? Let's, I mean, I'm always one to put the caregivers first. So like - Sounds like a plan. Yeah, so I think when it comes to buying gifts for caregivers, anything is probably going to be appreciated, right? We're just so grateful that somebody has been thinking about us and has us top of mind. But there's a lot of different things you can do, I think, for a family caregiver. And of course I also like self -care focused ones because not only are you giving them a gift, but you're giving them a tool of something that can help them mitigate burnout. So anything from like stuff that they would use like every day, we just had this in the fall, we have a sister's weekend and we do this favorite things party. Have you ever heard of that? Where we decided we were gonna each bring three things. We were gonna be $25 or less. This might be a great idea for someone to do as a swap exchange for their book club or their caregiver support group or whatnot. But I brought three of the same things. We kind of presented them, they're not wraps. But I got a lot of good ideas there this year for things like we had the things to clean our glasses, which would be a good thing for, they're called peeps. They're good for caregivers and for care recipients. Anybody who's wearing sunglasses even because they get grody, right? Very practical gift constantly. And then we had things like I'm wearing it now, actually. I love this Maybelline Lifter Gloss. It's affordable, it tastes good. Not that you're eating it, but you're gonna get some in your mouth on something. Smells good, it stays on decent. So I had brought that as part of mine. And then there was some cool body scrubs and lotions from, I think it was called La La Licious. So I think anything that can help us, oh, a boom stick was another one. It was like stuff that, this would be a very handy little makeup tool for a caregiver because you can put some quick color on your face, you can use it on your lips. Like it's one of those try it anywhere type of things. That's something you could like throw in your purse or your bag and when you look in the mirror and go, oh, it kind of looks so painful. Emergency, emergency. Yeah, put it, throw it in your self care tote. So I think little things like that, everybody's got different budgets these days as far as stuff that you can use. We did this, I do a Happy Healthy Caregiver virtual cafe is kind of every other month I do different kind of support where I wanna do some kind of a unique event for caregivers and introduce them to something. We had a Zentangle consultant come and teach us how to Zentangle. And it's basically like you're creating patterns. It's an abstract art, but it's very meditative. And she had given away as part of a prize this Sakura Zentangle artist tool set, it's like $20. But the thing with Zentangle is you use these little paper and you use like a micro tip pen. And so it's the little kit for that. And I like it because it's portable. You could throw it again in a self -care tote bag and pull it out just to kind of like, I need a mindful moment quick. Cause I'm a journaler, I love my journal of course, but I got that here too, the Just For You daily self -care journal, it's a prompted journal. And this is one form of meditation and doing that, but the Zentangle and an art journaling is another type of where it just gives you calm and peace. I can tell you, I felt very differently at the beginning of that session than I did at the end of the session. So something creative there. But I think too, when you're given a gift for anybody, whether it's a caregiver or care recipient, like just thinking about that person and what they naturally like and what they care about or what they maybe have mentioned to you in conversation could be something that would spark something. I was thinking, unless you know for sure they have a green thumb, don't give people a plant. They don't need something else to take care of. Yeah, I think as caregivers, right, we crave less things to take care of. The only exception I have to that would be the, I did get an AeroGarden one year, it's like for herbs. Right now I have basil, my basil is like taken off. And even if I can't use it in what I'm cooking, cause I'm not like this huge culinary chef, I learned this tip from another caregiver, Lisa Negro, where she said, she rubs it in her hands and smells the basil on her hands. I've been using it to freshen up my garbage disposal. Like I literally take some leaves off of it and put it in there to make it smell better. That's a really good idea. And I have a good idea cause I have the same issue. I have two pots with basil in it. I mentioned the other day, we needed to do a pasta dish with pesto. My husband was like, why? And he's like, oh, nevermind, I know why. Cause the plants are like big. It's pesto time. Yeah, it's like, and that's not something we normally eat a lot of anyway, cause you know, a lot of olive oil, it's not the healthiest sauce, but it is tasty. But I have been making basil mayonnaise and you basically just grind up, I think it's like half a cup of mayo and a third a cup of basil. I just do it to taste cause when I did it per the instructions, it needed a little more basil and I had a little more basil, so I threw it in there. And I am telling you, that is, that makes lunch just - Oh yeah, it's just like a little extra special and all you need is, you know, food processor or you know, maybe a blender, I don't have a blender. So I just use the food processor, grind it up and - Sounds yummy. It is really good and it's, you know, I throw just a touch of lemon juice in it just to kind of give it, you know, a little extra, what do they call it? Brightness, which that's a very strange culinary term, but yeah, it's delicious and it's, you know, you just plop in however much mayonnaise you need and then keep adding basil until it tastes the way you want it to taste, super easy. Never thought to use that. I think like little things like that, where you take something that people are doing all the time and you can maybe elevate it a little bit. So think about like, if someone's a tea drinker, you know, how could you make that special? Like, you know, tea, splurging on teas that they might not buy for themselves or the presentation of it and packaging it all together, maybe with some biscotti or something like that. Like it just like treat them, treat them to something spectacular. I also think anything pampering, like a massage gun or a silk pillowcase or a obviously nail appointment for their, you know, find out from their person where they go for those types of things and a gift certificate to that. I'm a big reader. So like reading is really fun for me, but sometimes, you know, there's lights now that you can get. I don't wanna hold a flashlight at night. I don't necessarily like reading a Kindle book all the time. So, but there's lights that you can light up and I can think of caregivers using that cause sometimes we're doing those things in very precocious types of places. What else would be good? I mean, any kind of activity that you can help encourage. I'm into pickleball recently. Have you tried to explore pickleball, Jennifer? No, there is a big pickleball teams in our community. I have very wacky vision. So I don't have depth perception. I have blazey eye and it wasn't corrected until I was four. So I could very, very much understand my mom's visual processing problems because I have similar ones myself. I don't realize, I know I don't have depth perception, but it's been this way my entire life. So, it's not abnormal for me, but I don't like balls getting hurled at me cause I'm ducking and I'm not trying to hit it back. I could probably play with the hubby, but you'd have to hit the ball gently towards me or else it's not gonna be very fun. Yeah, yeah. Well, I love it cause it's an accessible sport. It's definitely geared, it's for all ages, frankly, but something like that could be fun. Like, hey, let's, I think experiences are amazing. Let's take a pickleball lesson together. Let me take you on a hike. I got you this fun little hat and I looked up a hiking trail, something where you can really be someone's self -care cheerleader and have some kind of an experience together, a cooking class, a lesson of some sort where it's kind of a twofer, right? They're learning something and they're getting away from the caregiving world for a moment. And if you're looking for cooking classes, I did one through King Arthur Baking. It was called Pizza Perfected and it was on Zoom cause they're in freaking Vermont. So I'm not getting there anytime soon. Totally want to go, I use tons of their recipes, but yeah, it's like, I don't know how we got into just really, we really like to make our own pizza at home. We haven't done it for a while cause life, but it's not that hard, especially when somebody walks you through it and they sent you the video after, you know, like the next day. So you got to do it live and I think it was like 40 bucks. It wasn't expensive and it was at least two hours. And I have the video, it's saved in my Dropbox files and I can access it if, you know, cause there's some techniques that you don't necessarily know, you know, and I mean, just learning that technique was worth the 40 bucks, but it was a nice experience. So if you can't get out or, you know, I don't, I live in the Sierra foothills, so I don't live near things, even though I'm only an hour north of the state Capitol. It's like, there's some pros and cons to smaller air, quieter areas, depending on the day, sometimes the cons outweigh the pros, but yeah, there's, and I'm sure there's other places that do online cooking. I bet there are. And even, you know, maybe your person, your caregiver is not a person who enjoys cooking at all. And then, you know, I know for me, I used to dread the question as a sandwich generation working caregiver, like what's for dinner? And I'm like, oh, why do these people have to eat all the time? So something like that could be, you know, a subscription to like the green chef or some kind of prepared meals, or even like a Uber Eats or a DoorDash gift card for those, what are we gonna eat emergencies? I think all of that, I mean, just putting yourself in the mind of all the things, if you're a caregiver listening, like what you wish you had and what would have been helpful for you, having someone mow the lawn, like, or I'm gonna do your laundry this week. Like there's a lot of things too that even if you don't have a budget, like just showing up for someone else and doing something, taking something off of their plate would be amazing. Yeah, you could offer to help put up decorations for the holidays or you could offer to help do some deep spring cleaning, which the only reason that's coming to mind today is my golden retriever goes to the dog park regularly and the dog park has its own lake.
A highlight from 404 X is X
"Hello, everyone. Welcome to episode 404 of the Podcashy Podcast. I'm your co -host, Jessica Kupferman. With me as always, the glowing, the glimmering, Elsie Escobar. Sweet. That's my regular face, by the way. No makeup. My regular face. For those who are watching, this is not self -tanner. I actually have seen the sun this summer for the first time in five, well, for the first time in a few years, probably three, I guess. Well think about it. The year of 2019, I was preparing for the event. The year of 2020, I was trying to avoid getting sick. And then the last two summers, I was planning the event. So it's very nice to be able to not plan an event and go in the sunshine, which is what I've been longing for is like a real summer for so long. So I've been to the beach. I'm going to go back. I've tried to avoid work, but it's really hard. So I've decided I'm only going to work Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday until September. I mean, except for recording with you. That doesn't really feel like work though, to be honest. And I mean, I'm doing stuff like, I wanted to talk about a new email tool that I'm trying and like, I'm trying to like organize all my files and stock art. Have you ever even remotely attempted to organize your digital files? It is a cluster. I'll tell you what. I've never attempted it. I see it a lot. And I try to slowly develop a system as I do it, but I've never like sat there and did it. So my problem is that I decide I want one folder for all the things. And then I start moving them over myself. And then I feel like it's too difficult. And then I get a system, like a, I pay like $9 for some website to like move all my stuff over for me. And then inevitably in the middle, I decided it's taking too long. And so I try to do it manually and then some time will pass and I'll do it again. So I actually have eight versions of the same folder. Like every time I do a search on my computer for one document, at least six versions of that document comes up. I'm not versions like, like not different versions. The same document will come up six times cause it's in Dropbox. It's in Google drive. It's in this folder. It's in that folder. Cause I make backups. Now I have backups of backups. Well, it's such a disaster. I can't even tell you. Yeah. It's terrible. So I've been working on that. And I just, like I said, I just started a new email system, which I'm trying to acclimate to, which we'll talk about later if we have time. What about you? How's your summer going? What are you doing? What are you up to? What's going on? Just working. Are you getting in the sun at all? Yeah. I mean, I go, I mean, this summer, my favorite thing is to wake up in the morning and go do all my, I work for two hours outside every morning. That's nice. Yeah. So I'm like, I'm, I'm outdoors from seven to nine AM ish. Sometimes seven 30 to nine 30, depends on, you know, how soon I get going and how soon I set up out there. So that's been amazing. I love that. I can't wait. I want to see how long I can have that happen. Yeah. So, and it's the best because it's not sunny on my face. Like I'm not like, Oh my God, it's so hot. It's the perfect temperature. Yeah. I have shade ish. Like the sun's not really super hitting me. Yeah. It was beautiful this morning. So during that time, I'm waking up Isaac and getting him ready for camp, which requires a lunch, a water bottle, two bathing suits, a towel, sunscreen, bug spray. Does he bring it all back? Yeah, he brings it all. Well, the lunch he eats, but yeah, he brings it all back and the, yeah. And and and a breakfast, which he almost never eats. So it's an, it's a busy morning. And then he's usually there by eight 45. And then depending on how much sleep I didn't get the night before I go back to sleep until, I mean, I'd like to say 10, but sometimes it's 11. I haven't been sleeping well. Yeah. Hormones. Wait, I want to get back to the whole packing for camp camp and the fact, and he brings all of that stuff back. Why, how is this happening? This is their fucking system. Okay. It's not a perfect system, but they have instructional swim in the morning. So they have him arrive in bathing suit one, they swim and then they change into dry, sorry, I'm not giving you the finger. They change into dry clothes for the first time. Then they have lunch, whatever the fuck else they do. And then it's time for free swim in the afternoon in which they change into bathing suit. Number two. Okay. So bathing suit number one is already wet in the book bag, you know, hopefully in a plastic bag, but Delaware does not have plastic grocery bags anymore. So they've been hard to find. So I'm just letting him ruin his shit basically. Cause I don't know what to put it in. Anyway, every bag I have is like cloth now for anyway. shopping So yeah. So he puts it in the wet, then he gets dry. Then he puts in the second wet he's dry again. And then he comes home with the towel and the bathing suit. He's wearing the dry clothes. It's two bathing suits, one towel, and he's wearing the dry clothes by the time he gets home. What about all the other bits? The lunch is in a lunch box, which goes in the fridge when he gets there. Then he eats the lunch, smooshes the lunch box, you know, cause it's cloth puts it back in his, in his backpack. So it's empty. The water bottle, he is with him all day long. So he can't really lose that unless he refuses to drink water, which would be impossible at summer camp. But we didn't have this when we were kids. Like we had to depend on like someone to give us water cause there were no water bottles. Right. But he's got one attached to him like every all day, every day. They must have people there going, did you put your thing in your backpack? Did you pick up your towel? Did you put, did you have the grant? Like somebody has to be doing that. Cause I'm like. We have counselors and I don't know how many kids swim at a time, but you know, the counselors have to make sure they w I mean, it's like, let's say there's like 12 kids in a bunk and they're co -eds. So there's probably a couple of female counselors that go with, with the girls and a couple in with Isaac. Yeah. They, they check to make sure nothing's on the floor. Whose slipper is that? Where are your goggles? I can't, you know, and of course one's going to be like, I can't find my blah, blah, blah. Oh, I picked it up by accident. Sorry. And they'll like, you know, they're actually, it's actually taught him to be pretty well aware of where all his stuff is. Cause he hates losing his stuff, especially when it's our stuff. Like, I don't know why, what came over me, but I packed a Tommy Bahama towel with him. I don't even know if it was expensive because we've had it so long. It's an oldest towel. I just thought it's an old towel. Well, it turns out it's probably papa virus towel. It was my father -in -law's towel. So Scott's not happy with me because that's the one thing he lost was his, was Tommy Bahama towel. He has, and we can't find it. He can't, you know, and also they've lost and found. So it's an enormous lost and found. So you can imagine there were times when he was like, you know, three and four where, yeah, he didn't come back with a lot of shit. He couldn't, you know, the little ones, you got to really make sure you don't give them anything good. Cause then they lose it all the time. I don't know when little ones is going to be over. Cause I know mine, like I know Hunter's very good, but Mae, are you kidding? Like I can't like pen, like pencils, not nothing. Like I'm, I'm constantly going, where did it go? So I try to give Isaac a system, you know, he's got a thing about his goggles. If he does not have his goggles, he will not swim. So like I noticed this morning for the first time, he always panics when he can't find something also like his father. So like I taught him the goggles go in the front pocket and then on the way to the car, I'm like, where are the goggles? Front pocket. Isaac, do you know where your goggles are? They're in the front pocket. So today I started to, and this was years ago, right? Like four years ago when he started doing major camp and swim. So this morning he's like, here are my goggles. And I, and I take them and I go to shove them in the bag and he's like, no mom, front pocket. It's just like, he, he just automatically knows where it is. So I feel like if I can teach him, always put your, like my keys and wallet are not, I don't know, organized, but they're always in the same place. So if they're lost, it's cause some dickhead moved them. That wasn't me. Even if it means it's on the counter in this one place, I know where they are. Every time you just need a little system. So if make it have a system, like when I, when you get there, always put your towel in the bottom of the thing and then you'll know where it is every time, or always put your, you know, if you do, if you're habitual, you lose stuff less. That's all.
A highlight from The TRUTH about Sam Altman and WorldCoin

Summer is here. For a limited time, well -qualified buyers can get a 3 .9 % APR on a 2023 Honda Pilot, a 2 .9 % APR on a 2023 Passport and a 0 .9 % APR on a 2023 Ridgeline. Buy online, reserved from select dealers, or visit your local Honda dealer today. See dealer for financing details. My worst fears are that we cause significant. We, the field, the technology, the industry, cause significant harm to the world. I think if this technology goes wrong, it can go quite wrong. Artificial generalized intelligence. If you haven't heard of that before, well, I'll bet you probably have even heard of or used Chat GBT, midjourney or any one of the dozens of AI tools that have been taking the world by storm this year. In this video, we're going to be taking a closer look at the man behind the curtain, the mysterious wizard of Silicon Valley, Sam Altman, and we're going to be getting to the truth about him, his companies, what they're building, and, most importantly, what it all means for you and the future of humanity. This might be the most important topic in the world right now, so we want to make sure to bring the BitSquad up to speed. Let's get it! Welcome to BitBoy Crypto! My name has been today. We're doing a deep dive on the king of AI, Sam Altman, finding out what this awkward -looking startup junkie is really all about. Samuel Harris Altman grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. He got his first computer at the age of eight. This was back in the 90s when computers were still using dial -up and Pets .com. In 2005, young Samuel dropped out of Stanford after one year studying computer science, co -founded LÜT, location -based social networking mobile application. Go ahead and smash that like button and turn on the channel notifications, which puts you in the BitSquad. Make sure you stay up to speed with the latest crypto news so you don't drop out of all the best gains in the next bull run. But as the CEO of LÜT, LÜT Altman raised over $30 million in venture capital at the business -savvy age of just 19 years old. Imagine being so rich, you think it's a good idea to give $30 million to a 19 -year -old. Anyways, LÜT failed to gain traction, but Sam was still able to sell it in March 2012 to the Green Dot Corporation for $43 .4 million. Not bad for a first -time failed startup. Just one month later, the dropout failed. The founder co -founded another company, Hydrazine Capital, with his brother Jack. And in February 2014, Sammy's startup was named president of Y Combinator. In 2014, Sam claimed that the total valuation of Y Combinator companies has amassed 65 billion. Their catalog is much more impressive than Sam's resume and includes Airbnb, Dropbox, Coinbase, Instacart, OpenSea and Stripe, among countless others. Altman set a target for Y Combinator to fund 1 ,000 new companies per year, which is so many it makes it seem like Sam is just slinging more and more bad ideas at the wall to see what sticks. In 2015, Altman donated $10 million to start Y Combinator Research, a nonprofit research lab that Sammy funded to research basic income, the future of computing, education and building new cities. All these topics seem related, almost like they're part of a larger plan. Sam co -founded OpenAI with Elon Musk in 2015 and in 2019 announced that he would be stepping back at Y Combinator to focus on being CEO of OpenAI. OpenAI has several products including Doll -E, a generative text -to -image AI tool, Whisper, an AI -driven speech -to -text tool and Codex. But the most famous AI tool that OpenAI built is called ChatGPT. A generative AI tool that returns text, images or videos in response to user input prompts. Now, you input your like and subscribe to the channel to get the latest in crypto news. About 27 % of y 'all aren't subscribed. I don't get it. Now, I don't have time to get into exactly how all this AI stuff works, but just from some basic understanding, generative AI is a broad term for any AI system that primarily creates content. Large language models or LLMs are a type of AI system that works with language and draws from a large set of data and computational power. These can create a foundational model which is a term for AI systems that can be applied to a range of purposes. So ChatGPT is a foundational generative AI model that's based on a large language model. Okay, so sorry if that was confusing. I think this stuff is pretty cool, and it's important to understand what all these geeks are talking about with this stuff. I got to research it. I guess they know it intuitively. Moving on. ChatGPT was so popular that it reached 100 million users just two months after launching in 2022, which set an all -time record for user adoption. In response to this unprecedented user demand, Microsoft, a longtime investor in OpenAI, decided to increase their investment and extend their partnership, announcing in January 2023 that they would be investing an additional $10 billion into OpenAI. By now, you might be wondering, Ben, that's all great, but what does Sami have to do with crypto? Back in 2019, when he stepped away from Y Combinator to run OpenAI, Altcoin Altman also co -founded Tools for Humanity, the company building a global IRIS -based biometric cryptocurrency system called Worldcoin. What is Worldcoin? Well, according to Sam, Worldcoin was conceived as a prototype for universal basic income, which Sam sees as inevitable due to the rise of the technology that Sam keeps building himself. Also, it seems like if he would stop building all these things, then we won't have to depend on him to protect us from them. So weird. Sam tried to keep this project quiet at first, probably because it sounds so evil, but the idea simply is this. Users get paid in Worldcoin in a wallet they can use in the Ethereum ecosystem and runs on Optimism's tech stack. WLD tokens will be claimed by people and to verify your identity and unique personhood, Worldcoin wants to scan your IRIS using a super evil -looking silver camera called The Orb. I swear you can't make this stuff up. Worldcoin has a kiosk in Barcelona, offering free french fries in exchange for scanning your IRISes. Good thing I only eat freedom fries. Some offer a $10 rebate on purchases. Some offer a chance to win a new car. Where's Bob Barker when you need him? But whatever paltry bribe Sam Altman and his Worldcoin henchmen are offering, I guarantee you that it's not worth it. Details on this project are still deliberately being kept under wraps, but basic human intuition should tell you whatever they're up to, it's dystopian at best and an evil conspiracy to control the world at worst. My friends at Altcoin Daily said it well. Your eyes will be scanned. You will give up your biometrics data. You will accept your UBI and WLD coin. Sounds like exactly what the World Economic Forum has been planning for years. The scariest part? It's working. Hundreds of thousands of users are being quietly onboarded to Worldcoin in exchange for one of Sam's silly little bribes. According to Nansen, Ethereum layer 2 scaling solution, Optimism Arbitrum surpassed in daily transactions for the first time since January. The spike in activity began on July 24. The same day Worldcoin token went live on the Optimism mainnet. Although Worldcoin is careful to try and hide this information, they definitely do not advertise what's really going on. If you look close at the privacy deep dive section of their website, you'll see they say they're collecting a lot more than just users' irises. They need lots of data to make sure that the orbs are trained to recognize eyes regardless of who had scans. Initial scans targeted mostly children in developing countries like Chile, Indonesia and Sudan. I'm all in favor of decentralized digital identity, but there are a ton of great projects that are working on solutions for that. And none of them have relied on this creepy system of bribing poor children in third world countries so they can harvest their biometric data. There has to be a better way. Now, if you're like me, this kind of behavior by one centralized company, especially a company run by Sam Altman, the man trying to build the world's first AGI, it should worry you. Apparently, it worries European regulators too. Last week, French privacy watchdog group said the legality of this collection seems questionable as to the conditions for storing biometric data. They're coordinating their ongoing investigation with German authorities as well. Britain's information commissioner's office also confirmed that it was making inquiries. Even Ethereum co -founder Vitalik Buterin warned Worldcoin has major issues and pointed out that iris scans could inadvertently expose a person's sex, ethnicity and maybe even their medical conditions. Talk about a privacy risk. How many of you incels living in your mom's basement want people to know that you never even had sex? Oh, that's not what they're talking about? Despite what seems to be nearly universal concerns about Worldcoin's operations, Altman says they're going strong and onboarding one new verified person every eight seconds. That's a bull run. A bull ride. Crazy to think about, but at that rate, it would take them five years to get to 20 million users. So Altman's plans to 5X Worldcoin's onboarding capacity, well, it's going to be done by the end of the year. And now we get to the most interesting part of the story to meet anyways, and that's Altman's ongoing and highly public feud with the Dogefather himself, Elon Musk. A short version of how this conflict started is in 2018, Elon approached the other founders of OpenAI and expressed concern that the company had fallen hopelessly behind Google in the quest for AGI. Musk proposed that he take over OpenAI in order to catch up. The other founders rejected his bid. Musk eventually left the company and withdrew his funding. Altman eventually took over, and the two have been in competition and even some conflict ever since. When Chat GBT launched in November of 2022, OpenAI instantly became the hottest name in tech. Musk was reportedly furious. In December 2022, Musk pulled OpenAI's access to Twitter's data, ending a contract sign before Musk acquired Twitter. February 17, Elon tweeted, OpenAI was created as an open source, which is why I named it OpenAI, non -profit company to serve as a counterweight to Google, but now it has become a closed source maximum profit company effectively controlled by Microsoft. On March 15, he tweeted, I'm still confused as to how a non -profit to which I donated about $100 million somehow became a $30 billion market cap for profit. If this is legal, why doesn't everyone do it? That's Bill Gates. He does it. Altman finally fired back in an interview saying about Elon, I mean, he's a jerk, whatever else you want to say about him, but I think he does really care, and he is feeling very stressed about what the future is going to look like for humanity, which is very interesting because a lot of this sounds exactly like conversations I had with Sam Bankman -Fried around the time of the FTX collapse. Things he said about me to me and to other people was he knew that I really cared about the stuff that I was talking about, but I just was going about it the wrong way. Very eerie similarities there. The reason for their dispute though seems to come down to both men wanting to prove themselves. Elon wants to be the man who took down Google and Twitter, and Altman seems to just want to make up for the fact that his first startup would fail. He tweeted in February, I failed pretty hard in my first startup. It sucked! And I'm doing pretty well in my second. The thing I wish someone told me during the first one is that no one else thinks about your failures as much as you do and that as long as you don't psych yourself out, you can try again. It's crazy the two guys with such big brains can be still so small -minded. So we talked a lot about Sam Altman, but what's the takeaway here? What's really at stake in this story? Well, I think it goes back to where we started. Fear. Altman is a prepper. He said in 2016, I have guns, gold, potassium, iodide, antibiotics, batteries, water, gas masks from the Israeli Defense Force and a big patch of land and big shore I can fly to. What is he prepping for? Well, he doesn't say. But the key is the answer to that question was asked in Congress on May 16, 2023. What's his biggest fear? My worst fears are that we cause significant. We, the field, the technology, the industry cause significant harm to the world. I think if this technology goes wrong, it can go quite wrong. So it's clear that Sam is consciously aware of the risks of what he's doing, but he's doing it anyway. He's taking an attitude of technological determinism, the idea that anything can be done will be done. So why not do it first? Why not create the tools for a dystopian nightmare future and then have all the power you need to avoid it right there in your hand? There's just one problem with that. If you believe in technological determinism, you also believe that the path of technology is the same for everyone, which means that anyone else could go down the same path and beat you to the prize at the finish line. And what's that prize? Well, if you ask Sam, artificial general intelligence, AGI, which means a piece of software that combines solutions to new unfamiliar tasks, basically code that can actually think. It's likely that the creation of such a piece of technology would lead to what's known to sci -fi nerds as the technological singularity, got in a box. The singularity refers to a point at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to humanity and civilization. OpenAI published a paper in April concluding that the latest OpenAI model exhibits many traits of intelligence, including abstraction, comprehension, vision, coding and understanding of human motives and emotions. In June, The New York Times published an article alleging that many leaders of Silicon Valley are becoming concerned that the singularity may already be here, and we just haven't realized it yet. Altman himself stated during his recent appearance on Lex Freeman podcast that he believes that multiple teams will create AGI while working on different projects in different parts of the world at roughly the same time. In other words, Sam isn't just worried that he won't get to the singularity first. He's worried that even if he does, his creation still won't be enough to save him from itself. And that's Sam Altman's worst fear. Sam once tweeted, AI is the tech the world has always wanted, but we don't want it if it means we have to let him scan our eyes and unleash something on mankind that has the power to take over every aspect of our lives before we even realize we've lost control. Let me know down below in the comments what you think about Sam Altman and his plans to control the future of civilization. And let me know what you think about AI and which projects are using it in creative ways that might give them an edge in the next bull run. And most importantly, Sam Altman vs Sam Bankman -Fried in a cage match, who wins? That's all I got. Be blessed. BitBoy out.
A highlight from 1193. Uber 3.0 Using XRP? + Solana Teleport & Hivemapper Analysis
"All right, so let's get into it today. We're going to be talking about Uber and possibly the idea of how Uber could be maybe taking cryptocurrency and also what the innovation will look like around Web3 and what kind of companies could be competing with Uber because all of this will play into the blockchain. You guys are going to like this one. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back to The Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital. If you guys are looking at long -term holding, one of the best ways to do that is getting into crypto IRAs. There's a couple of things you can do. You can get into gold and silver. You can also jump into all of the blue chips, Bitcoin, Ethereum, et cetera, but you also have the capacity to get into things like XRP, Avalanche, Axie Infinity. There's just a ton of options all inside the iTrust platform. So make sure and check it out. You do get a $100 funding reward if you use our link, so make sure and just use that. It does help the channel. All right, so let's go into a couple of things. I want to just to highlight to you guys some of you that are brand new to our show and maybe don't know completely how we cover and what we cover. We really stay on forward -leading technology. Blockchain of course is one of those big sectors. Of course, we talk about AI. And the other area we talk about is ridesharing. Ridesharing, of course, has been one of the topics we've hit here on the channel for quite some time. We've covered ridesharing in reference to Solana and what's happening with HiveMapper. We'll talk about that today. We've looked at Dito's program, which is a Chinese ridesharing company. There's a ton going on in this space is the point. And the reason this is so important is because Uber, pretty much one of the gigantics within the sector, is now looking at doing something unique. That is maybe actually taking a cryptocurrency for payment. I want to get over to a couple of clips. Let's go to our first clip right here talking about profitability. A big day at Uber headquarters where we are this morning. Uber reported quarterly results. The ridesharing company achieving what is a milestone, a first -ever gap operating profit in the company's history. Uber generated the $1 .1 billion of free cash flow during the quarter. And joining us right now is the company's CEO, Dharikas Rajahid, the CEO of Uber. When you took over, by the way, I was looking, bookings were $14 billion, $33 billion right now. Free cash flow was negative $877 million, and so today is quite something for you. I don't know if you could see the stock. The stock up is now up about 4%, almost 5%. At one point it clicked up over 6%. But really, you look back even towards May, and it is now a straight line up. And what we're seeing in advertising is $650 million now of run rate revenue growing very significantly, and we're well on our way to a billion plus next year. All right, so there's a lot to break down here. I want to continue with a couple other clips. This is more of their vision for the future, Uber 3 .0. Let's go to that clip. I think you might have just completed 2 .0 of sorts. I don't know if you can take the victory lap on that front just yet. We're not ready for victory lap, but we've come a long way. And that was, let's be honest, that was almost a daily knife fight for you in terms of trying to get through it all. What is, to the extent you now are a platform, a profitable one, what does the 3 .0 version look like? Well, I think the 3 .0 version for Uber looks like essentially are connecting every single vehicle and driver who is available to take you any place in your local city. And to some extent, what that translates to is you're an operating system for everyday life in a city, right? When you combine that with ML and AI, we essentially are there for you, machine learning, artificial intelligence, we essentially are there for you. Any place you want to go, anything you want to get delivered to your home, as we get to know you more and more, we become more of a utility and more of a service that you can't do without. All right. That's good for Uber. And obviously, there are some things that they're doing that are starting to kind of tilt the scales a bit in their favor. And obviously, profitability, the idea of machine learning, AI being incorporated into the platform. But really, this is still pretty much a human interface. And drivers are still the iconic badge for Uber's success. I want to go to this third clip in terms of driver profitability so you can kind of get a framework. We'll go into that in a minute. So for example, drivers, couriers earn over $15 billion including tips on our platform. That was up 19%, which is up faster than overall gross bookings growth that was up 18%. So the increase in pricing is really going, the vast majority of that is going to drivers and couriers. And we think that's fair. All right. So some of the things I think you probably have heard this about Uber is they're a bit of a penny pincher. And they also are accused, in many cases, of really kind of abusing the driver network. This is a tweet here, just, Uber accused of price -surging customers if the phone battery is low. These are some of the shenanigans that have been played out. And Uber is not like any company. They're for -profit. They're trying to do the best they can. But when you get into these kind of scenarios like this, it does start to show badly. Now, the question will be, how does Uber and will Uber integrate more consumer -facing technology like blockchain, crypto acceptance, et cetera, that will open up some interesting things? I want to jump to this next clip that really gets into kind of the forethought of their crypto plans. Listen up. Is there any chance of Uber accepting Bitcoin in the future? Are you having conversations about this internally? Like could it happen someday? It definitely could. We're having conversations all the time. So we're absolutely watching it. And if you say, is Uber going to accept crypto in the future? Absolutely. At some point. This isn't the right point. But we will. Speaking of that, last time you were here, you said Uber will absolutely accept crypto someday. Someday. Any more details on that? It's demonstrated to be a real store of value. But it has not yet demonstrated its utility in terms of exchange of value, efficient exchange of value. You know, our average trip is a $15, $20 trip. So we need crypto to become more efficient. We're certainly looking at all choices. But if you ask me the same question a month from now, I think the answer is going to be the same. So interesting. I mean, the efficiency side of things, just to look at their drive platform for how to cash out with their thing called FlexPay. One of the things you'll notice here is Transfer completed one to two business days. So I mean, in most cases, bank transfers and transfers today are almost next day, with the exception of a handful of entities out there. I think Uber, being one of the leading technology companies and by far the leading ride -sharing platform, could easily leap to this. Now the question would be, could the platform of choice scale to what Uber's demands would be? They have millions and millions of customers using activity on some of these blockchains would be pretty significant. And one of the things that they could benefit from is some of the new technology. Now the question is whether or not Web3 applications will start to leap forward and above Uber, especially around fees. But before you think about that, outside of the ride -sharing side of things, Uber also has Uber Eats. Now this is the other aspect of their profitability. This is just how Uber Eats works currently with, if you're a restaurant, you're going to get charged a pretty heavy commission, I'm going to zoom in on that for you guys, starting at around 15 % right now, and pretty much standard across the board right now. And this is one of those things that is starting to, I would say, slightly soften mainly because of the fees for Uber Eats and also because of the pressure that we've seen from consumers who are now going back to dining and or doing pickup. Matter of fact, there's a lot of new data on that, of that very same situation. So Uber Eats may not necessarily be the path forward, at least as a huge profit center for Uber as a whole. I think their potential here is still ride -sharing. And the potential for this to really kind of accelerate is going to be interesting to watch because if crypto gets in the mix, it could be pretty significant. Here's just a little bit of research, ride -sharing market size worth around $344 billion by 2030. That's a pretty significant market, and if you just think about what Web3 would look like, what crypto would look like in here, this would be one of the gigantic companies that could really start to move, especially how adoption is done because I think ease of use is going to be a big factor here. Now, I want to kind of cover a few companies that we've talked about here on the show before. This is where we get into the Web3 side of things. If you're brand new to the show and you're trying to figure out, all right, how does this affect me? What can I invest in? What am I watching in terms of new technology? This is a good precursor to the ride -sharing side of things because there's a handful of companies that are developing on Solana. Now, Solana we talk about all the time. It's one of the, I would say, the blue chips of crypto right now. And these are some of the companies that are integrated within and or on the platform of Solana. And there's others out there, and we'll talk about a few of those. But Teleport right here is basically a ride -sharing that is as open as the internet. The idea is pretty straightforward. It's designed to be more of an open network of ride -sharing and how that might be utilized in the future. So we're going to see more of this, and I think when you think about Teleport and just what they've been able to do in a short period of time, you also have to kind of look at the team. This, of course, is their CEO. Remember, this guy is part and was part of the team that designed Dropbox, their point -to -point protocol. That's a pretty significant leap. I mean, when you look at the type of technology and also the engineers that are in the space. This is another one that has leaped to Web3, which is really great for Web3. It's great for innovation, and we're going to see more of that. I want to go to a clip of Teleport, their CEO, talking a little about what their vision is. Take a look.

"With the help of <Speech_Male> its native CRU coin, <Speech_Male> the project in question <Speech_Male> aims to address <Speech_Male> a topic in a <Speech_Male> cross chain manner. <Speech_Male> Now, <Speech_Male> cross chain obviously, <Speech_Male> you need that <Speech_Male> in today's interoperable <Speech_Male> space. <Speech_Male> But why is it <Speech_Male> important? Well, it's important <Speech_Male> because we're <Speech_Male> starting to run programs <Speech_Male> that take <Speech_Male> up massive <Speech_Male> amounts of <Speech_Male> space. If you think <Speech_Male> metaverse <Speech_Male> were not <Speech_Male> going to have enough <Speech_Male> storage space on computers, <Speech_Male> already, <Speech_Male> I can't pull up my <Speech_Male> sandbox land <Speech_Male> on my <Speech_Male> computer. Our <Speech_Male> builder for where we've been building <Speech_Male> in sandbox because <Speech_Male> I don't have enough <Speech_Male> storage <Speech_Male> space on my <Speech_Male> computer to <Speech_Male> pull it up. <Speech_Male> So here's some pros, <Speech_Male> according to bit degree, of <Speech_Male> course, is their opinion only. <Speech_Male> Decentralized <Speech_Male> data storage and sharing, <Speech_Male> off chain <Speech_Male> operations, suitable for <Speech_Male> individuals and developers <Speech_Male> like <Speech_Male> store personal web <Speech_Male> three NFT <Speech_Male> metaverse related files, <Speech_Male> CRU token <Speech_Male> utility and governance, <Speech_Male> dedicated crust wallet, <Speech_Male> the cons, <Speech_Male> there's a <Speech_Male> steep learning curve for <Speech_Male> beginners. We're going to get into <Speech_Male> why that's kind of silly here <Speech_Male> in a little bit. <Speech_Male> To put it simply across <Speech_Male> a decentralized data <Speech_Male> storage network, <Speech_Male> it's connected with web <Speech_Male> three and the <Speech_Male> ecosystems present <Speech_Male> on this new form <Speech_Male> of the Internet. <Speech_Male> Probably the simplest way <Speech_Male> of how you can think of <Speech_Male> the cross network crypto <Speech_Male> project. I'll be acknowledging <Speech_Male> that it's <SpeakerChange> far from <Speech_Male> one to one example, <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> as a decentralized <Speech_Male> Dropbox. <Speech_Male> So look at the companies as <Speech_Male> being compared to Uber, <Speech_Male> Airbnb <Speech_Male> Dropbox. <Speech_Male> This is specifically <Speech_Male> what the area called <Speech_Male> crust files. <Speech_Male> So of course, <Speech_Male> with a decentralized <Speech_Male> data storage network, you're <Speech_Male> going to need a place to <Speech_Male> store files. Cross <Speech_Male> files <SpeakerChange> does that. <Speech_Male> You're able <Speech_Male> to keep everything <Speech_Male> anonymous <Speech_Male> and decentralized. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> this is very important <Speech_Male> because <Speech_Male> obviously you <Speech_Male> don't want all of <Speech_Male> your files being <Speech_Male> known on the Internet <Speech_Male> by every person <Speech_Male> who <Speech_Male> they belong to. So you <Speech_Male> want to be able to keep your anonymity <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> keep things private. <Speech_Male> They've also <Speech_Male> got a decentralized <Speech_Male> cloud ecosystem. <Speech_Male> You want to learn more <Speech_Male> about that. You can check out this <Speech_Male> article. We'll drop the <Speech_Male> link to this article down <Speech_Male> below in the <Speech_Male> description. <Speech_Male> Now this is just important <Speech_Male> because this is important <Speech_Male> to know the consensus <Speech_Male> model. They actually use <Speech_Male> two. We'll get into the second <Speech_Male> in a minute. <SpeakerChange> But this is <Speech_Male> called NPO <Speech_Male> W or meaningful <Speech_Male> proof of <Speech_Male> work. <Speech_Male> It's a unique type of trustless <Speech_Male> technology that allows <Speech_Male> the network to inspect and guarantee <Speech_Male> that work. The <Speech_Male> crypto miners <Speech_Male> perform. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> if you think proof of <Speech_Male> work for Bitcoin, you <Speech_Male> think proof of stake for <Speech_Male> Ethereum or <Speech_Male> cardano. <Speech_Male> There's plenty of <Speech_Male> consistent mechanisms out <Speech_Male> there.

"I have some other sort of more peccadillos that I can talk about on a tech focused podcast, but we're accounting is concerned. That's really the most the most common thing. They're just bereft of the features you really need. You can't get the granularity of detail. And you wind up having to integrate directly with that third parties API to get the stuff out of their software service to munge the data to book it correctly, which is to say at the level of granularity and dimensionality that the client needs into QuickBooks. Okay, then that's actually an interesting segue. I think you sort of answered this, but there's probably a little bit more meat there with the native APIs and the apps that tout that they're QuickBooks integrated, right? Is it the same sort of flaws that you're seeing in those applications that you have to you have to pull data out from them in order to make it actually work? Is that the main flaw there or are there others? That's a great way to sum it up. I think I'll try to be specific again with a tech focused crowd here and there's going to be a lot of coders, of course, and your audience, a big problem is completeness. The APIs, a lot of these companies are still not API first software companies. And you can't get all the data that you need from the API. Sometimes we have to have clients or our own team download payroll reports, save them to a Dropbox folder which then our magic sort of processes. But there's not an API call that will get you that. So that's the first big flaw is a lot of data is available with the API, but not all of the data. So you wind up sometimes having to just throw out the API altogether and be like, we can't use the API to get the accounting data. We have to have a person manually download this thing. Why are they making this thing available in the UI of the web and not also from the API, right? So that's certainly my biggest peccadillo for services that there's other services that we use data from harvest or time tracker data or Shopify or all sorts of project management tools.

"Then I do worry about what is coming because the iPad experience for me is not anyone you're as good as the Mac experiences. You know, I prefer walking on a desktop with keyboards. Approach. Not touch screen and using an iPad I just find it way too complicated. It's not complicated to throw on one. We're going to voice-over, is that just down to how much we've never found anything that beats a keyboard as an interface. Well, that's a great point. Yeah, there is nothing else out there really that can beat the keyboard or if you use a Bluetooth keyboard or evil or whatever it is. There's always something external that you would use to a professional tactile interface. But I think it's just a layer. I think it's just the layout of iPadOS that every time I've used it, it kind of freaks me out because I think if this was my daily workflow, I'd have to give up computing. I'd have to use a PC because there's no way I could use this every day in a productive way. I know people do use it and do like it, but I feel the people who use it who like it are using it for very specific tasks, like maybe a better web browsing, maybe an email, they're not doing huge amounts of stuff on it. They're not working on it. I'm still not convinced iPad is a work device, even though they tell they tell us it is. But I know Friends of mine who have tried it, tried to make the switch from excited friends who have gone from Mac to iPad and they say, I just can't do it. It doesn't have the capabilities. I mean, it's got the power in it. But it just doesn't have the applications behind it yet. Yeah, but there are features coming in. It's a slow the road map to wherever apple's heading for it is years and years, right? The drag and drop option. I've only just started really using on the iPhone and things dragon files from one app to another. I don't know. Dragging it from files onto WhatsApp and sending someone that way. Works really well. But it's a new workflow that I'm not used to, but it is something that you think, ah, now this is something which is more desktop like, you know? So trying to get files in and out of the iPhone before, or the iPad before. Or iCloud and then into somehow into Dropbox. You had to open up it, and you had to go to a specific absolutely. And then you'd have to pick the application and then a night was weird. But what I'm saying is we are getting better and slowly and slowly. They are, as you say, they're getting together. But my point was, we've been complaining about voice-over lacking these updates and these bug fixes for the longest time, but it doesn't stop people from still. Buying the latest do I think that's the point we have to put to anybody who comes on, including me. I think it's a great question to ask. Why are we still buying it? Why are we still and I have my reasons? I do have my reasons, and even if I just use it for that, and that alone then fine, I will do that. But it makes it more and more difficult every day for it to be my daily driver if features like Dropbox, things I use applications on a working the way I wanted the overall accessibility is not great.

"New API, though, also now limits how Dropbox and other cloud app works. So, for instance, Dropbox currently, let's use a store. I Dropbox folder on an external drive, but this will no longer be possible, even after the update with support for macOS Monterey and macOS Ventura because all content from cloud apps on macOS will now have to live in library slash cloud storage folder locally for privacy reasons. Now, of course, many users were upset by the news according to 9 to 5 Mac. And one of them, hello, but the court he was someone says, what happens? I Dropbox folder on an 8 terabyte drive in a tiny internal drive. Will it try to claw and stuff across and E double the space? And a question that was put to Dropbox support the response from a company representative confirmed that nothing can be done about this as it is a macOS limitation. And unfortunately, there's no way around it. The official update, the new Dropbox update is coming and they have notified users that it will roll out certain with support for macOS Monterey 12.5, fixing the online only issue, but unfortunately, users who need to store the Dropbox folder on an external drive will lose the option forever. So there you go. Well, that is a massive deal. Now, the only silver lining I suppose is that the online only bug will be fixed. So you could it's a lot of management though. I'm thinking about heavy Dropbox users. It's 2030 terabytes. It's ridiculous. And if that's the case, I mean, that is bad Dropbox. It's done, right? Well, this is an apple problem, right? This is not a Dropbox issue now. So I totally get to explain that because people will jump on Dropbox and that's not their fault. They are working within limitations. And Apple have to see, this is just, this is weird. I don't understand this one. I don't get who benefits out of this. They're saying for privacy reasons. But look, ultimately, if you're signing up, this is a third party service. So you will be signing up with the terms of conditions of privacy with that company. If they lose my data or someone steals my data, I'm not going to bleed my Apple for Dropbox losing my data. That wouldn't make sense. I'd blame you. What difference if it stored locally or externally?

Maybe you'll have some time to take a look at these new homepods. Oh, God bless you. So nice. Accessibility. You are amazing people. Thank you. So I am checking out the new homepods at the minute.

I think that's our one and done experience. iPhone 15 comes out. I've got another leg. Now we know why he fell. Now we know how it works, okay. So I'm going to tell you why I'm not happy. I'm looking forward to the view of those, by the way. Perfect. I heard Gordon's take on it as well. Very good, very good. Well, here's Gordon who. Gordon, he did a thing about the HomePod.

So Dropbox has had an issue on the new max within one for a while.

"I want to encourage you to support and check out Pedro Gonzalez's substack. It's called contra contra substack dot com. Pedro is special and he is unafraid and he talks about issues that are so critical right now. And you guys got to support him at contra substack dot com and he writes about things that really people are afraid of talking about. We're going to get right into that Pedro. Welcome back. Happy Friday. Charlie. Thanks so much for having me. I appreciate that intro. Of course, all right Pedro, let's get into this story you have here on your substack. Groomers online. Tell us about it. Yeah. Well, it will sound eerily reminiscent to another story that was recently published in town hall about a couple of game men who were also outspoken LGBT rights activists who sodomized their adoptive children and produced child pornography. I mean, really, really heinous stuff, right? And so I had actually covered a story that's kind of similar, but admittedly not nearly as bad. It's bad, but not that bad. Last year, while it was still developing. And so basically, the FBI uncovered a network of a network of mostly gay men who are producing and distributing child pornography online using apps like telegram and kick. There's a whole aspect of online anonymity enabling this stuff, but the most disturbing element of the story is that several of the people that are involved in this that were in communication were teachers. So it actually started with a teacher in Philadelphia. Working at a private school. So don't think that this is a public school thing. This was a prestigious private school in Philadelphia. This teacher had worked there for nearly two decades, and Dropbox notified an organization that's in charge of kind of fielding complaints related to this sort of thing, which are then forwarded to law enforcement. So Dropbox flagged a file that had been uploaded that depicted two underaged boys engaging in sexual acts.
Kari Lake: Democrats Are Intentionally Slowing Down the Count
"And Carrie can I ask a question Because I know you believe me You are a true teller if there ever was one What about Doug doocy I mean I know Katie Hobbs is the Secretary of State but why couldn't he clean this up I mean I'm a conservative first I don't really care about your party affiliation This is a mess This is embarrassing Well let's go back to 2020 I think there's people in this state who didn't want to admit there were problems with our election I have been sounding the alarm 2020 was a mess Our August 2nd primary in 22 was a mess and now we've had another one that's a mess And nobody everyone wanted to call me names Conspiracy theorists elections and you can call me whatever name you want Our elections are a mess and we're not going to take it anymore And so the people who needed to do the work didn't get it done we will get it done I guarantee you we will get this done I want to let your listeners know Dan that we are going to win this I will be the governor of Arizona and we are going to win this and here's why There are about 2.5 million votes roughly cast and would you believe that 622,000 of them haven't been counted yet And of those 622,000 384,000 ballots are those mail in ballots that people did not trust to put in the mail of the Dropbox they walked them in on election day and handed them to somebody at the polls Those are people who are with us And we think they're going to go on the conservative side 60% We'll get that We'll get 60% of that vote We could get more than 80% of that vote The people's ballots that haven't been counted yet are the Republican ballots and they're slow rolling Discount I believe possibly intentionally because that way they can set the narrative until the whole country oh no America first is dead didn't work out this time Well let me tell you we're already seeing racist flip here
Dinesh D'Souza: We Don't Question IDs; Why Question Surveillance?
"Like hey how about we institute a vigorous surveillance system of these bail boxes the left to go no no no no no you can't have that either I mean this is really a damned if you do damned if you don't the classic sense isn't it Well a very good way to think about all this is simply to ask in any context other than voting would this requirement be suspect And so take voter ID Nobody says that if you show up to a bank and they ask you for an ID it's banking suppression Nobody says that if you show up at an airport and they ask you for an ID it's airline suppression But somehow if you show up to vote and they ask you for an ID it's a voter suppression So right there you know something's wrong because it is only in this context that the ID is interpreted as some form of intimidation The same with surveillance Nobody questions the fact that there's constant surveillance particularly when there is a possibility of something being of some sort of shenanigans going on And yet when it comes to the mail and drop boxes and only the mail and dropboxes suddenly surveillance become something that's threatening it's going to scare people It's going to deter them from voting And so on why would you be deterred from voting if you were casting a lawful vote We're talking to dinesh d'souza check out his movie 2000 mules It's 2000 meals dot com right Then it's just at the website It's 2000 meals dot com and there's now today out a new book that sort of more systematically and fully lays out that case Things that you can't put in the movie are in the book And also an answer to critics Oh great Where do they get the book Wherever you are you can buy books On Amazon Barnes and noble just about anywhere that you can buy a book
Dinesh D'Souza: We Need Surveillance on Ballot Boxes
"So your movie 2000 mules scared the hell out of a lot of people me included so informative And very well done And in the movie you pointed out that there are some obvious security problems with these ballot boxes that are left unattended You know it's pretty obvious when you go into vote at a voting location you go there in many states you have to present an ID many states you don't Either way this typically a person there So if dinesh d'souza would have tried to commit voter fraud and bring in say 20 different ballots from 20 different people he didn't know from a harvesting location it would get kind of weird as you walk back in 20 times That doesn't happen if these ballot boxes in 2000 mules showed that You see the response though dinesh now the left is paranoid that poll watchers and people who have taken it upon themselves to legally watch what's going on at the ballot box is the left's freaking out They can't believe that we would actually want to see what's going on in this system It drives them crazy I mean let's think about this Dan If you look at the size of the cybersecurity infrastructure agency their election rules require that all mail in drop boxes of 24 hour surveillance So my first question is in an era where you've got surveillance in every parking lot every mall every Home Depot every post office why wouldn't states have surveillance on every Dropbox Patriots wouldn't have to camp out at dropboxes if there was in fact the required surveillance installed But we know from 2020 that very little of that was actually done Now then the excuse was COVID We never got around to it but there's no excuse for not having surveillance in 2022
Remember, the Federal Constitution Was Violated in Pennsylvania
"Former judges former attorneys general testifying that there was no fraud This is a very sloppy way to explain things very sloppy And intentionally so First of all I told you what the U.S. attorney wrote From Philadelphia About how they clamp down on him not to say anything and not to do anything That's what he accuses barv doing Nobody's pursued that in this fantastic investigation to get to the bottom of everything but putting that aside put it aside Put the Dropbox as a side put the signatures inside put the dating aside put it all aside How can you be a former attorney general or a former appellate court judge or a former Justice Department Or whatever you are Whether you like Trump or hatred put it aside And not acknowledge the fact that in certain states like Pennsylvania the federal constitution was violated Not that may not be technically fraught But it is technically a violation of the federal constitution The court recognized that in Bush versus gore was to prefer gore versus Bush but you get the point But this Supreme Court under John Roberts wouldn't do it Nonetheless you don't pretend it didn't happen Because it can happen in the future And by the way this is one of Trump's points If we don't get this fixed now it's never going to be fixed
Dinesh D'Souza: Ballot Mules Were Funded by Left Vote Stash Houses
"Now to the extent you're comfortable telling us who was funding this do you know Yeah I think I do We do know that these mules the mule by the way is nothing more than a paid operative who has been hired to deliver these illegal ballots So it's similar to a mule and drug trafficking or sex trafficking except here we're talking about ballot trafficking These mules don't come up with their own ballots They get the ballots from what can be called vote stash houses And who are these votes stash house as well There are left wing organizations deeply embedded in these heavily democratic urban areas So the mules get the ballots from there And then you can see them where geo tracking them We hear meaning through the vote a voter integrity group that bought a massive trove of cell phone data You can see these needles kind of moving from Dropbox to Dropbox to Dropbox typically in the middle of the night wearing gloves looking around to make sure no one sees them and then tossing ballots after the other into mail in drop boxes
Dinesh D'Souza: Liberals Will Try Excuses About Election Fraud Videos
"This is amazing to me And that so many people in litigation they couldn't even get courts to hear the cases that they were trying to bring As if you have to prove the case before you can even have the court trial It's an amazing thing how the whole system shut down Is it not It's absolutely amazing Now I do think that we learn from the rittenhouse case didn't we that the kids life was saved by the video I mean I would listen to people testify all those guys weren't chasing rittenhouse They were just running in the same direction but then when you look at the video they're like nah they were actually chasing him And the same thing here because you'll get all kinds of clever liberal explanations like well maybe these organizations just went door to door and collected honest votes And maybe they were delivered in the wrong way but no once you actually watch this operation with your own eyes you'll see a guy in a hoodie He parks in the middle of the street at three 27 a.m. he comes running up to the Dropbox He looks at the left looks at the right He's wearing gloves Why gloves Because he doesn't want to leave his fingerprints on the ballots because it was an arrest in Arizona in which vote these ballot stuffers were busted And that's because they left fingerprints on the ballots So the moment that happens you start seeing the mules now wearing gloves And they also by the way take photos Now they don't take photos of themselves It's not a selfie like I voted They're taking photos of them of themselves stuffing the ballot box And the reason for it is that that's how they get paid They have to prove that they actually were there but they actually dumped the ballots And so this is a coordinated operation This could not have developed somehow simulate a spontaneously This is organized fraud conducted by the left involving left wing organizations hiring and key for types that's actually what the population of the mules is made of and funded by very powerful forces in the Democratic Party
Dinesh D'Souza: '2000 Mules' Reports on Electrion Fraud in 5 States
"What states are involved in this film where you have these meals Well we focus through the vote bought data in 5 states And not even for the whole state They bought the democratic urban areas in the states So it's Atlanta which encompasses about four counties And then on to Phoenix Maricopa County on to Detroit Michigan Milwaukee area of Wisconsin and finally the greater Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania This is where the 2020 election was decided And in each one of those instances there is video there is not video from all those states there's video from Georgia there's some video from Arizona There's some from Michigan in Wisconsin they were supposed to take video They said they would but they didn't But see that geo tracking evidence by itself is decisive and the reason mark is that all our cell phones have a unique and distinctive ID Now I can give my phone to my wife Debbie and maybe she's going to go from Dropbox to Dropbox But the fact that my cell phone was at that location is not open to dispute This exact same geo tracking was used to catch bin Laden It was used to arrest January 6th defendants It's used in law enforcement every single day If there's a murder in a park and it's completely dark and there's no cameras and nobody saw anything the cops will do geo tracking and say you know what there were 5 cell phones in that vicinity Let's figure out who those cell phones belong to Those are 5 suspects Let's start there So what I'm getting at is we're using a technology here that is completely familiar and used in
How True the Vote Acquired Dropbox Camera Footage
"And we can watch this together. And Greg, which one would you like us to play? Is that gwinnett county Georgia? Let's play gwinnett Kim. So actually, before we play the video, let's get into actually how you got the video because I'm actually cutting in line here. So in addition to all of the analysis that was happening, we were doing a wide sweep of all kinds of election integrity records or open records. Video was part of that. The federal government had come out and given guidance for all of these new drop boxes saying that their recommendation is that in addition to a number of checkpoints, video surveillance should be among them. And so we began to submit open records to get the video. And these videos are a product of ultimately what came back all what's interesting about what you're going to watch now is that we didn't get this until last month? Yeah, I mean, since the first open records requests went out and probably January, and we've been fighting. So by law and Georgia, they had to have a camera over the Dropbox. Is that correct? But by rule. By rule. I remember they made up they made up the emergency rules that allowed the drop boxes to be there at all. So they had to have rules to go with them. So when raffensperger came in and signed a consent decree with Marc Elias to allow these things to happen, they had to codify some rules internally. So the rules said you have to have these cameras surveillance cameras on the drop boxes. And we almost immediately started as soon as we started asking, they started, well, we don't have it. We can't give you an example or a reason why we don't have it. We just don't have to take 6 months to get it. It'll be including the video you're about to see. I took a year to produce this video and the only reason they produced it at all is because Catherine in true the vote made a complaint to the Secretary of State, which would have been put in place a mechanism for them to get in a lot of trouble. Lo and behold, the next day, I think, all of a sudden the video. Now this is gwinnett county. So before we play the video though, you also suspected that that time place on the video would show you something because you had pings that showed that this individual was doing a route. Is that correct? And in addition to our open records efforts, we had evaluated all of the chain of custody documents. And so you could tell, at this particular location, what a typical day look like, how many ballots they were typically getting. And then a spike. And ballot trafficking by and large. Money laundering works a 100%. When you see the cafe that has the $9000 breakfast, you're like, wait a second. Yeah. Any auditor worked like, why did you have a big, you know, there was no one in the restaurant. There's also no one looking though, Charlie. There's no one looking. They

Explosive Election Fraud News With Dinesh D'Souza
"There has been a lot of reports of fraud in absentee ballot balloting going back many election cycles. But absentee balloting in the past was a pretty small fraction of the overall ballots. And so unless the election was essentially a tie, the absentee balloting didn't generally make a difference. But what happened in the COVID environment, of course, is a massive expansion to mail in balloting. And giant numbers of mail in ballots just flying all over the place. And then also the emergence of all these drop boxes. Dropbox is very often privately funded drop boxes. Unsupervised dropboxes drop boxes that are just sitting there all over the place and heavily concentrated in democratic cities. So we my wife is very good friends with a woman named Catherine engelbrecht who has an organization called true the vote. True the vote was started in 2010. It's probably one of the premier voter integrity organizations in the country. I know that you know Katherine and I have known her for years. And but I met her I had known over, but I met her through Debbie and we've gotten to know her pretty well. And so we were able to sit down with food the vote and review some research that they were doing. And they wanted me to sort of evaluate the significance of it. And of course, the question I was asking myself is, you know, is this evidence from like one place, like is it all from Georgia? And if so, it would be interesting but insufficient because evidence from one state wouldn't in fact be enough to tip the election. We'd be talking about corruption in one place. But fortunately, true the vote has done their work in all the key states. And they focused on the heavily democratic areas, Fulton county, Georgia. They focused on Maricopa County in Arizona. Also in the Detroit area of Michigan, the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin, and then the greater Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania. And using really two things, one is geo tracking, geo tracking is basically cell phone tracking. And cell phone tracking is very useful because if you're able to process the data, you can actually see these so called mules, mules are kind of paid, vote traffickers, mules are people who come to ballot boxes very often at night. They come using gloves so that they don't leave any fingerprints. They take photos of themselves so that they can get paid for the ballots that they're dumping. They make multiple trips to multiple dropboxes. So there is no question in any of the state of these states that we are witnessing illegal activity. Even in areas where it was temporarily allowed to do quote vote harvesting in no area is it legal to be paid to deliver votes to a mail and
Dinesh D'Souza: Enough Ballots to Impact an Election Were Transported by Illegally Paid Mules
"Did ask how many Do you have any idea how many ballots this may have entailed by looking at the video I mean I'm assuming you obviously can't count how many they're dropping off But I mean is this the kind of information where we could be talking about a significant number of ballots I could have altered an election whether it's a federal one or a state member It wasn't just the president on the ballot here the nationals There were other candidates as well Are we talking about that kind of number of ballots or just a few here and there No we are talking about a giant number of ballots And it's very easy to I don't want to estimate or give a number I might do that in the film But here's all I'm going to say think of it Think of 2000 paid mules right Each one of them going to many dropboxes and dropping many ballots in each of them And you just have to run the math to realize that we're talking about well let's just say it's a bigger margin than the I mean it's certainly enough to make the difference The numbers are not going to speculate on now In fact some of our data are still we're still basically putting it together because we've released the trailer but we haven't finished the movie The movie will come out in April probably the toward the end of April And I'm not quite sure just yet if it will be at theatrical release over something that will release sort of straight to home box office But either way we're going to try to make it available So everyone can see it and see it very easily
Dinesh D'Souza: Footage in '2000 Mules' Is From Official Electronic Drop Boxes
"Not good The Nash how did you guys get this footage Is it surveillance footage from from Paul I mean I saw the trailer You have a teaser of some of the footage in there How did you where they just come with a camera set up specifically for these drop boxes How did you guys get a Jeff to foyer How did it work Yeah So the footage is official footage of the electronic Dropbox This is not footage We took this is not something that someone sent us in the mail through the vote legally obtained the footage by freedom of information requests and through other legal means We're getting more footage by the way so that we already have a giant amount I believe 3 million minutes of footage already with more to come So this is not a case where we're blowing smoke here The reason I jumped all over this is I realized the significance of having not only geo tracking evidence but video evidence

I stood in the gold and I froze until everyone was ready and then I made one slash and I missed it so I had to do it again. Yeah. I think people need to know that. It's not all no, I agree. And I think they should know, but I'm just saying, it's like, there's a certain part of it that and I hate when people say this about the money thing. But there's a certain part of you and me and everybody else here that just does it because they really love it. Because we talk about the money aspect, we talk about getting paid. And I think that's really important to hammer home. And I will always always always fight for that side of it. But I don't want it to be about just the money. It's about not getting taken advantage of in a lot of ways, and it's like you provide a certain level.

Folder and say download now it will download now force it to download. And that's like when on that mac mini. I did that and now it. I guess it's figured out on that computer. I want everything. Download it goes. I rarely find anything. That's not downloaded on that computer. And i'm stretching my My ssd to limit on that computer because of it but that just makes it easier to have everything and get everything backed up. you know. i don't have the ability with. I cloud to my knowledge that i could push cloud data into that external disk and figuring it out but and i don't frankly want to because it fits on the internal drive and that's that's the most important data. Okay so i i'm making. I cloud work the version thing. I do miss. But i you know i kind of have version. I need the version. Something i just go into the time machine and it's there. Yeah i mean if it's local than you get all the benefits of those other systems right. I mean even back plays right as long as it's local It can it can grab it for you. I mean that's the killer feature back lays if you have attached storage that gets backed up to so not only do i have the the The mac mini game backed up at the four terabyte. Attached drives well. I think back delays loses money on me. Maybe that's why they stopped sponsoring. They're like this guy's sparks. he's ripping us off. I kinda feel the same way. I've got a lot of a lot of stuff going on and plays the last thing i would say is. If you find yourself in the situation where you feel like you've got stuff of scattered rather we've all been there where you have things that some arnold drive some or drive dropbox like it is not a bad use of time to sort through that stuff and make sure you knew where things are and you know if you have something like dropbox or i cloud. Where have you have a lot of space. You're already paying for look at what you could consolidate or what makes sense to keep and not you know these services have a tendency to sort of just stick around and you know like i know for me. I'm paying for enough. I cloud space. That i could put my dropbox there. I choose not to for all those reasons. I listened earlier but you. You may not be taking advantage of these things so hopefully we had some stuff that was Useful to you in this in this episode. Because i think spring little time cleaning things up and organizing is it makes living with all this stuff a lot easier well and also has so many payoffs first of all. It's much easier to find. Wrap your head around your data and so if you're looking for something that makes your searches more powerful and other thing that it does is it makes you a forces you to realize where things are so you. Can you know weigh that against your backup system like if suddenly you realize your most important data is on an attached archive drive but that archive drive is not getting backed up more than you know. Once every six months maybe you need to rethink your backup system and I think knowing where your data is the first step. Yup absolutely and it is easy. I mean even preparing for this.

"dropbox" Discussed on Mystic Access Podcast
"Yeah, so make sure you're logging into your account, and that way you'll know you'll get the correct pricing. Also remember one other important thing. You don't have to be a professional a podcast. Plenty of people podcasts, not everybody does it for their professional gig or is part of their professional gig. Sometimes people just do it for fun. They get together, they talk to other people. You can share all kinds of things. Recipes, quilting, sewing, hobbies, all kinds of stuff. If you have a hobby, if you ever think that you geek out about and you would like to share it with other people. You think you have some knowledge that might be interesting to others. You can podcast. And so it can be a hobby. It can be a lot of fun in addition to perhaps being something that someone does professionally. So I just want to point that out too. And a podcast is not recording something putting it in a Dropbox link and sending it out to a melody. No, no. There's a lot to podcasting and we'll be diving into that. It doesn't mean you have to take it all seriously, but it does mean that you're going to need some preparation, some time, and probably some money involved to make this the way you want it. So podcasting. We're going to be talking a lot about that in the month of October. Oh, speaking of which, let's mention class times. You have until October 4th, that is when the listening to podcast class starts. However, we encourage you to sign up early if you know that you want to be part of it because the mailing list will be up soon. So if they're not up as of the release of this podcast, they'll be up very, very soon. So you can already begin engaging with us and with your fellow class participants. So that one begins the fourth, the other one begins on October 20th. So we'll have plenty of time to get to know each other prior on the mailing lists and ask questions and craft these courses in the way that you want. So we encourage you to join early. So we have talked in the past.
