He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd.com. Okay, everybody. Welcome. It is Thought Crime Thursday. That's the first time we said that. It kind of works. We have Blake Neff, who I think liberals and conservatives equally hate. Tyler Boyer. Hey, how you doing? We went from getting more popular every week to being hated by everyone now. Blake, your stock is going down like the Hindenburg and Jack Pysobik, still learning who he is. Jack will lead with you. How are things going? I love with Blake's long-term strategy is here. He wants each quadrant of the political compass to hate him equally and somewhere in the middle, he'll find a woman. It's like the Geraldo Rivera strategy. Exactly. It's the undertaker strategy loved by few. He's doing great, but it's very necessary. Okay. Let's start with our first story today on the lineup. I don't think we have much of a, Oh yeah. Okay. The RNC is once again, trying to get Trump to sign a pledge to support the party's eventual nominee. Even if it's not him, Trump doesn't seem interested. Is he making the right move? I I'll take my take first. And then Jack, you can, I'll hand off the baton. These pledges by the RNC are so irrelevant. They're non-binding they're so fake and Trump not wanting to sign it. I just think he reasserts control that it is his party and also shows that the RNC doesn't mean anything. Jack Pysobik your thoughts. So I, I think a lot of these pledges are kind of silly at this point because we all know the situation that we're in, in the party, you've got these two wings fighting it out. And in many ways, MAGA itself represents a real third party in America. It just happens to be within the Republican party, within the framework of the Republican party, fighting for dominance within that party. And so this idea that, Oh, we're all going to be kumbaya really? Does that mean that Mitt Romney is going to come out and support Trump when he wins the nomination? Does that mean that all the Republicans that are going to do, you know, run against him they're not going to undercut Trump, although it's ridiculous. They're already undercutting him. The New York Times has got the Federalist Society putting out articles today saying, Oh, Donald Trump, the conservative case for disqualifying Trump from the, from the ballot in November. And so I think it's ridiculous. I think the entire pledge is ridiculous. I don't think he should sign it. And the fact that Trump was the first person ever in Republican politics to say, and just raise his hand and say, I will not support the eventual nominee. That's the reason he won. Tyler, you are on the RNC. What's going on here? Yeah. I mean, look, so I, I agree with half of what Jack said and I disagree with the other half. And I'll tell you the other half that I disagree. So I agree with, I agree with the latter, which half next question. I agree with the latter half, which is that Donald Trump should not in no way, shape or form sign. I'm a member of the RNC. They're probably going to like, try to kick me off the RNC for saying this probably, but I don't think that Donald Trump should sign the pledge. I think the pledge is stupid. These things are idiotic. Exactly what Trump came out and said is exactly right. I wouldn't support half these people on the stage. Like who would support, you know, some of these guys like Chris Christie, I would not support Chris Christie. Personally, I would never support Mike Pence. I would never support a pledge to support Mike Pence. And so like, no, why would you sign that? That shouldn't be a qualifier to get on the stage. Now, the only part I'll disagree with, and it's just kind of a minor disagreement is that there, I actually don't think there are three parties in the country. There, there isn't a Uniparty third party. There isn't a MAGA third party. There are, there's us versus the left and the left is the Uniparty, you know, and I hate when people are like, Oh, the Uniparty is like this third party coming up the middle. Like everyone has to be moderate. This is what they want to do with choice voting is they're trying to produce this moderate middle that's non-existent. It's the left, the globalist left that hates you, hates America, hates everything that America stands for. And it's Americans. And there's a lot of Democrats that are figuring this out and they're switching over. And so the party has to become the party of freedom and, and not relent to what is the Uniparty, which is the left, which is what people say all the time. There's no difference between Republicans and Democrats when Uniparty is in control. The Uniparty is not in control right now. Well, I just, I, I love that you just brought up ranked choice, but real quick that you brought up ranked choice voting. Cause I just saw recently there's a legal filing cause they've considered ranked choice voting in DC and obviously they're trying to get ranked choice voting in every single red state, every Republican jurisdiction. And then it comes up in DC and there's a legal filing that's like, we can't have ranked choice voting guys because it's too confusing to Democratic voters. It will keep them from electing Democrats. No, it said, it said somewhere, this will confuse African American voters. It's like minority voters. minority voters. So literally they're admitting straight up in San Francisco, where it's not working in Vermont, where they kicked it out in DC, the most Democrat areas in America, they're admitting this is not good for minority voters because it limits people's access to the ballot. Then it's just, and they've done this before they did it. Eric Holder once sued a town in I think North Carolina that tried to do nonpartisan elections because they said like, this would keep, this will confuse black people. Cause then they won't know who the Democrat is. And it is the constitutional right of Democrat, of black people to vote for the black people party, which is the Democratic party. That was the argument from Holder. But, but, but bring this back in. So bring this back in with the ranked choice voting, the whole point of ranked choice voting. They want to create this third party, middle ground model. It's not a third party guys. It is us versus them. They want to create a controllable false set of synonyms. It's a radical left that still like dresses normally basically.

"each quadrant" Discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"It looks like I mean you guys can visualize it right. There's a line that divides it equally on the horizontal and a line that divides the page equally on the vertical. A big plus sign essentially. OK so the top of the page direct on the bottom you're going to write indirect and on the left hand side of the page you'll write introvert and the right side you'll you'll write extrovert and you're going to draw these words fairly small because we're going to fill in this chart. So next you're going to draw that big plus sign on your page to split it into quadrants. You'll have an upper left upper right lower left and lower right quadrant. Now you're going to draw the letter D in the upper left I in the upper right S in the lower right and C in the lower left quadrants. Again that's DISC going around clockwise. So now we're going to label those driver influencer support and communicator. That stands for DISC driver influencer support and communicator again clockwise and right small because we're going to add some descriptions to each quadrant again making this very practical and tactical. So in order to understand the chart let's first test you podcast listener puts your finger in the middle of the chart and ask yourself if you're someone who is generally direct or indirect. Well how do you know? Okay slow your roll. So this is one of the first things that we're giving to you that makes all this rather obtuse information practical. Listen to what Julie just said. So you've created your chart and let's go over this again right because it's worth doing. Some of them are driving around or on their exercise you know bike or walking. Don't draw and drive please. Don't draw and drive right. But you know you can visualize obviously a piece of paper drawn into four separate quadrants and Julie in the upper I'm looking at it now the piece of paper is in front of me and the upper left hand quadrant is what word? D for driver and the upper right hand quadrant is? I for influencer. Lower right is? S for support and lower left is? C for communicator. Okay so you guys can get that. Now Julie is saying is put your finger now at the top is extrovert no at the top is direct and at the bottom is indirect. So at the top of the vertical was say you know a north right it's pointing north maybe think of it like a compass. At the very top the line that's dividing the page in half that's your vertical line right at the very top the word direct at the very bottom right the word indirect. That's right and so you're going to put your finger in the middle and ask yourself are you because it's in order to you know understand this start with yourself are you generally direct or indirect? Well do you use lots of words and tell stories that would be indirect or do you use as few as possible words in conversation okay so that's very direct move your finger up or down depending on your answer and you know most people are not super extreme one way or the other but they'll have a feel for whether they're a talker or not so to speak. So you'll be in the upper half of the page the lower half of the page and next ask yourself if you're more introverted or extroverted and move your finger left or right to see which quadrant you land on. Okay so we got to go back to our visualization right yeah but everyone claims to be a visual learner though we've done podcasts on how that's a bunch of hooey in the past but for those of you want to hang your hats on that. So they're looking at the piece of paper again remember the D for drivers in the upper left hand and the upper right hand is the influencer I and then the lower right hand is S for supportive and the lower left hand is analytical or C right.
"each quadrant" Discussed on The Dentalpreneur Podcast with Dr. Mark Costes
"Does everybody have a number in mind? Yes, most of us. Anybody taking the time to figure out how to calculate their freedom number? So is anybody tracking? Yes, no. Okay. What could you do? Who could you help and how would your life change if you had a significant increase in net worth and personal take home income? That's another thing that you guys are going to get a lot of personal development is narcissism. And when is enough enough? Why do you continue to work so hard when you already do so well financially? You're going to get that a lot. That can get up into your subconscious. You have to have a reason for wanting to continue to build your net worth. For me, it's very, very clear. It's my next chapter is smile or reach international. After a certain point, I mean, I hit my freedom number like 5 years ago. I love doing this. I'm not doing this for the money. I love doing this. I love being around you guys. You guys give me energy, give me purpose. All of this stuff I do because I love it. I wouldn't have had to work 5 years ago. I could have stopped working. But I continued to increase my net worth because I want to pour all the rest of that into the nonprofit. What is that mean for you? What does that what version of that do you guys have in your life? And if it's just to get a higher net worth, that's cool. If you want to build, you know, legacy wealth, I get it. That's cool. That's an awesome goal. But you guys have to decide what it is. And it's got to be compelling enough to push you through all the bullshit that we have to go through is practice owners. I talk about this concept of towards motivation versus a way motivation. Obviously, this is a take home exercise. But I love this exercise. I try to do this every quarter actually. Write down 7 to ten positive character traits you embody or would like to develop as you design your ideal future. Patience, poise, courage, honesty, integrity, discipline, grit, passion, empathy, just some examples. This one is one of my favorites, poise, that I've struggled with that a lot. Trying to control that gap between stimulus and response is the whole idea behind mindfulness, right? When somebody annoys you, when you're tempted to road rage, when your hygienist infuriates you for something, the gap controlling that gap between what just happened and how you react to it is everything. I love that word poise. Constantly striving to improve that in myself. Imagine that in three years that you could have the exact life that you desire, but in order to get it, you must write down in as much detail as possible what your life will look like in each quadrant. What character traits will you need to cultivate in order to get there? How will this evolution positively affect your family and those closest to you? What are the likely obstacles that you'll need to overcome in order to achieve this ideal? Number three begin with a mind quadrant and go around clockwise to meaning muscle money in that order. For this exercise. And then a way motivation. Write down 7 out of ten weaknesses are negative character traits that you have personally displayed in daily life or when facing challenges stress or frustration. And patients dishonesty procrastination, Brian. Selfishness. Stubbornness, irresponsibility, lack of discipline, laziness, anger, bitterness, and cynicism. Write it down. Self reflect and write it down. Do you embody any of those right now? Write down with as much detail as possible. What your life would look like in three years if you allowed these character traits to be the dominant force in each of your four futures. How would this negatively affect your health, your family and your personal relationships? Is that thunder? Holy cow. Glad we're inside. So can you guys commit to me by raising your hands that you will do this exercise? I still don't get everybody to raise their hands. How about that? Raise your hands if you commit. And you can lie, but just commit. All right, thank you. You made me show a lot better. Okay, what do you guys think? Yes? All right.
"each quadrant" Discussed on Nonprofits Are Messy: Lessons in Leadership | Fundraising | Board Development | Communications
"On effort to engage in low on driving impact. Try not to fire them, but try to get them to take themselves off your board. Yeah, exactly. You're going to find somebody when you do that exercise with a board, rob. There are no boards where there isn't somebody in each quadrant, right? I think for the most part, that's right. Yeah. Although a board that has structured itself right and who has a board chair committed to this vision of a highly effective board will have had conversations along the way or a governance committee will have provided report backs or have conversations that might create a culture where that bad Apple board member removes themselves. That's the ideal scenario that you've put systems and structures in a culture in place where this becomes somebody's decision rather than you having to have the awkward conversation yourself. I couldn't agree with you more, and I get asked all the time, how do I fire a bad Apple board member? And my answer is always you do everything you can to avoid it by putting systems and processes and communications in place. So it's very clear to the bad Apple board member or the dead wage board member. That they are, in fact, dead weight. And when they realize that, they typically self select off. So. And one other piece of advice I might give is you can put the concept in their mouth, they may not say it first. Maybe you've can find a way to say, you know, it seems Sally like your life is just, you know, taken on a life of its own, your job, congrats your, you know, your sowing through the company and it's pretty clear you just don't have time for the organization anymore. And we totally understand. You can take them right to the edge. Yeah, but they'll jump on and say, oh, thank you for saying that. So often the response has been thank you. I've been struggling to figure out how I can have this conversation with the organization. They might be waiting for you to raise it for them. This is actually a very good strategy too if you have somebody who keeps missing a board meetings, right? Exactly. You can make the exact same play. Wow. I know your life is just like crazy town these days. And I'm sure that's why you haven't been able to attend board meetings. And you give them permission to say, yeah, my life is too crazy for this too. Yep. One other tip, if you have that struggle with the board share role, that's even more difficult, right? If you have a bad apple on the board share role, how do you have a conversation with the board share? One suggestion is, have another board member raise their hand and say, well, I'd like to be considered for board share in next year's election. Yes. Oftentimes the board share thinks that they have to stay in the role because no one else is willing and able. But if you can identify the next board chair and have them lead by expressing interest, it creates a much easier conversation around a potential transition in that core role. I think I'm starting another podcast here by saying this, but I'll take my chances. I'm not a big fan of a vice chair role on a board that is presumed to become the board share. Sort of the runner up miss USA, if you will, because they're not always the right person. And the right person may not actually be there, but maybe somewhere else in your posse. Yeah. Yeah, I've seen a professional services organization. Professional association of a very large group of people of a particular profession where, you know, they have a very structured approach to governance.
TX Sen. Bob Hall: A Weather Balloon Can Launch an EMP Attack
"One of the things that concerned me lately is when I saw the weather balloon being used Right We used a weather balloon It was called project yucca Why you see it You look it up on the Internet It was the first time we detonated a nuclear weapon high in the atmosphere We launched it got it up to about 85,000 feet and set it off and discovered this electromagnetic pulse that came off of it Now because it was still in the atmosphere it wasn't as big a pulse as what we got later four years later when we were in the South Pacific then on a quadrant and launching a couple hundred nautical miles into space in which of course you know you get no kinetics from it I don't know nothing blows up nothing gets knocked down no physical damage But the gamma rays that thing impinge with the particles in the atmosphere are knocking their electrons loose which are interact with the Earth's magnetic field and in a fraction of a second induce a large current 2000 volts per meter In anything metal or electrical And renders them absolutely broken by burned up Anything

"That service activity. I see the dichotomy here with each quadrant. You have these extremists. You're exactly right. You can use that. Well, my family's most important, therefore I won't serve there. You're right. It's such a hard balance. And there is no rules. There's no, it's an ambiguity. I love it. I love gray. It's messy. I love, I love just this complexity. I love them feeling uncomfortable. And not knowing what to do. Yeah, that's the coolest thing, but it's so uncomfortable and people want rules. So you give them rules, they're happy. Yeah. So the general principle of we recognize where people are at and there's nothing we can do. There's no secret magic weapon to change them or to shift them to different contexts. They sort of have to get themselves there.

"I can attach the actual chart since that's make them do alone with. So you're going to get a fresh sheet of paper at the top of the page you're going to put the label direct and at the bottom you'll write indirect. It helps when we've presented this in the past if we give them a visualization of what in their minds eye what they what it looks like when it's done. So here's basically the way for you guys to do that. You're just going to in essence and Julie's going to get into the specifics, but you're going to take an 8 and a half by 11 and you're going to divide it into four quadrants. It looks like you guys can visualize it. There's a line that divides it equally on the horizontal and in a line that divides the page equally on the vertical. A big plus sign, essentially. Okay, so the top of the page direct on the bottom you're going to write indirect and on the left hand side of the page, you'll write introvert and the right side you'll write extrovert. And you're going to draw these words fairly small 'cause we're going to fill in this chart. So next you're going to draw that big plus sign on your page to split it into quadrants. You'll have an upper left upper right, lower left and lower, right quadrant. Now you're going to draw the letter D in the upper left. I in the upper right, S in the lower right and see in the lower left quadrants. Again, that's going around clockwise. So now we're going to label those driver influencer support and communicator that stands for. Driver influencers support and communicator. Again, clockwise, and write small because we're going to add some descriptions to each quadrant. Again, making this very practical and tactical..

"We've also kind of lived in different areas so for listeners. Who are not familiar with. Dc dc's basically split up into four different quadrants. There's northeast northwest southeast southwest and so each quadrant is a little bit different so like the white house and so forth. That's in north. West capitol hill goes into southeast. I live in northeast. So i've had a chance to live pretty much almost in every quadrant. And that's been really nice too because some quadrants are more outdoor water river based and others are more monuments immortalizing museums based more downtown chinatown. But it's kind of gives you a different variety throughout the city as well for sure. Yeah it's good that you've areas. Plus like i know a lot of people that they say. They're from dc but really there from like well like the wolf suburbs like arlington or some of the other different cities. That are around there as well. Yeah now if if people are planning visit to dc. What time of the year. So they plan on visiting based on the weather or maybe the discern events or festivals that happened throughout the year. I think the best seasons to visit dc our spring and fall mostly because the weather is just it's pretty unbeatable. Spring here is gorgeous. You probably are familiar with the cherry blossoms. And so the cherry boston's of course. There's a cherry boston festival that happens every spring. It's around march or april depending on the bloom season but other than just going to the title based in and around where the monuments are and so forth. where of course a lot of the cherry blossom trees are they also are around the entire cities or the entire city is kind of in bloom. The weather is very moderate. Starting to get warm but it's not too warm. We have a great arboretum here. It's called the national arboretum. It's free as is so many other places in the city and the arboretum again in the spring is just stunning. I mean the flowers. The trees green Just so verdant and lush. It's beautiful the fall has also really nice time mid-september i would say even through about mid november. I'm from pennsylvania where it starts getting cold around mid october here in dc. It stretches out a little bit more. Are we still have some warm days. In november last thanksgiving was aided the seventies which was a little bit of anomaly. But those are the best seasons summer of course a lot of people come in the summer because it's summertime. Summer is very hot here. it's very humid. it could be really hot and of course the winter. It's fine and the museums and so forth to go inside kinda give you little bit reprieve from the cold but it is so i would say fallen spring for sure all right. Yeah and then these weird towns were because of all the politicians and and everything. That's there as the kind of the center of our government. You know when you're planning your. It's a little bit of a different schedule right because when they're in session. The city's just slammed and packed with like a beehive of activity but when they're out of session is actually probably a pretty good time to visit. Right right you're absolutely right. So congress has added session usually for about two weeks in august. Which of course does lend to be warm and hot here but you're right. It's not as hustle and bustle. It's kind of quiet. Actually and a lot of people who live in dc just like a lot of other major cities. They'll leave in the summer to travel right. Especially august in. July people will go to the beach. They might go out to the eastern shore in maryland and so forth so if you're looking for lesser crowds in it for being a little quieter august can be really nice. You just have to be prepared to know that. It's going to be warm. But some of the i mean i think some of the fun part of living in dc to is the motorcades and seeing you know the other day. I was riding my bike. And i read my bike by a pass bernie sanders. You know you do get these sightings because a lot of senators and congressmen and women. They live in capitol. How are they live in the dc area. At least even if it's just for parts of the year and so it's not that off offbeat or strange to kind of have citing so that's fun to seeing helicopters in seeing. You know like. I said the motorcade go by. That's part of living here as well. I mean it can help. They can make it fun that can also of course be a little annoying with traffic and so forth but you know but the other great thing about dc. It's a very walkable city. And so of course you can drive and so forth but it's a city so parking isn't always readily available. I walk and i ride my bike. A lot at the metro is really really great here. It's very very accessible at takes pretty much everywhere. You wanna go. It's a pretty extensive line. Actually the second biggest metro system in the country. And it's pretty efficient so you don't have to have a car when you're in dc. I that's one of the really great advantages of visiting the city because everything is so proper transportation. Finally here buses metro and so forth. That's really awesome. We'll speak in transportation and everything that the getting to dc. And so i i know. There's several different airports. That are there in dc area. Is there one that you recommend a sounds like once we do arrive at the airport. We should rent a car. We should just take the public transportation into the city and the local transportation that we have to worry about renting a car. Yes absolutely so the easiest. The closest airport is ronald reagan national airport and so that's dca is there Three letter acronym. That's technically in virginia. But it's literally right over the water in arlington's either no airports actually in dc. Reagan is the closest you can take. The metro. goes right to reagan. There's actually a metro. Stop for ronald reagan airport when you come out of the airport of course like any other major city airport there. You know taxis uber and so forth. That would be the easiest if you're flying internationally at dulles is another airport which is further out. That's about forty minutes or forty five minutes outside of the city but whatever. I travel internationally mostly on flying dullest. Reagan is more domestic. And then there's baltimore airport. Bwi which of course is in baltimore which is about forty five minute drive from washington. There are times that i had a baltimore because there are direct south west. Or you know there are certain locations that baltimore accesses more. But i would say for the most part. Reagan is your best bet followed by dulles at in third party. Baltimore okay now. That makes no sense and like you said. Don't rent a car. Take advantage of the public. Transportation is easy getting a capacity or something like that as far as that. We don't have to put in the coins or swipe your card every time. Yeah absolutely they have these things when you go to the metro station really any major any metric that you go to you can get daily pass or you can get anything. They offer like a seven day. Pass that you can buy that. It's obviously good for a week. It's a certain amount of money that you can use it the entire week as many times as you want throughout the metro and i should say also. The metro runs through dc but also in northern virginia and also out to maryland so it connects a lot of the city. So if you're in dc for example and you visit arlington cemetery which is right across the bridge in virginia. You can take the metro there or if you want to go out into maryland go to for example bethesda which has lots of restaurants and other sites. The metro goes there too so the metro really is pretty extensive. It takes you mostly anywhere you want to go the only place. The metric hasn't really go into the city. is georgetown. but what you could do and what many people do is you can take the metric foggy. Bottom which is where. George washington university is and then from there. It's either a short walk or you could take a taxi or so forth that it's close enough that it makes it pretty convenient to get to okay knows as far as like once we're in the city and and picking out our hotel. What part of the city should we book hotel or. Are there any parts of.

Salesforce Service Cloud CEO, Clara Shih on the Importance of Account Based Service
"Wanted to share three things. I wish i'd known done five years ago. Which i'm now making sure that our team sales for spills into the product tell other company leaders in sas not make the mistake that i did. The first one is what. I call account based support. We've all heard of abm. We did that in hearsay. Abm didn't help us with bob. Abm actually made bob madder because every time we try to nurture him with thought leadership or up sell him on a new product. He was reminded that we were working on things other than the thing that he asked for three years ago. So if we take a step back right first let's talk about what kinds of support cases usually get resolved. I throw the quick and easy ones. The ones that you're tier one support agents can do first call resolution. Everyone's happy restart device reset your password. Reauthenticate burlington account then. There are the high severity cases. You're step one step two your psychos down. Everybody from engineering is no rushing into the proverbial office pulling all nighter to get the site backup asap l. Hands on deck. Third category are the issues that lots of customers are complaining about. Good pm's in pm one-to-one we're trained to focus their into the the rest. Lets you become accustomed development shop that leaves the risk zone. The ever elusive important. But not urgent quadrant in this is where bots ticket was waiting for us. He really needed it for how they are enterprise. It environment was set. Up wasn't a quick fix. Didn't qualify as one by any means it would have benefited other customers to but to him. It was an enormous pain not to have it but it got lost in the mix. So i've been thinking about this pretty much nonstop for the last five years and this notion of account based support it's meant to solve issues like box and if you think about all of the different customer facing functions be have enterprise sales it's inherently account based marketing has gone based in the last few years. Now it's supports ternan services. Turn so that we can factor in whether someone is a strategic customer which is whether there's an open opportunity which his company did have whether they issued in rfp which they had this data we know exists in our companies that existed at hearsay. But it was all over the place siloed

"each quadrant" Discussed on MAKE SPACE — A Home Design Show by Never Skip Brunch
"To know that the point of this is that each of the four quadrants should be balanced. So if you're in a space and you have like you know one of the corners has the fireplace. Let's say the fireplace isn't centered. One of the corners has the fireplace. That's report like our main furniture grouping over there kind of in that corner okay. Well then you have three other squares or rectangles that need something in it for that room to feel balance. You can't put all the big furniture and the big focal point just in one corner of the room. That room is gonna feel very off-balance so this is helpful. Because when you're laying out your furniture you're laying out those activities zones and those furniture groupings. You're really gonna look okay. How is each area. Each quadrant of the room balanced. This is helpful kind of bird's eye view top down. What where could we add visual weight whether that is a piece of furniture whether that's kind of maybe some built in. Maybe you could add you know some cabinets or an accent wall could do that to like a big stone accent. Wall can some weight so think about balance and the quadrants are just an easy way to do that in my design school basically what they did is they gave us this little printout out that had like all these little furniture things like pictures but they were to scale of the room. We drew so you could cut them out and literally like rearrange them on your floor plan. So that's something. I actually really recommend if you have like you know. This is your furniture. You know it's three by five. You can cut out on a piece of graph paper a little thing. That's three squares by five squares. You can lay bullet. You can get crazy and color if you want to but you can actually move things around and kind of play with it without having to actually move around all the furniture in your space. So that shows you how things fit whether or not it'll work. It's really simple. But it's really a good way to kind of play around with things. it can be really helpful. in terms of visualization. Another thing i want to talk about is axes so basically the idea with that. You don't want just one side to be the focal point of your space. You wanna balance on the other wall. You're going to draw a line through the center of the focal point like a fireplace. Or really where you want the focal point to be. If you're going to set up a tv and kind of like a little piece of furniture that could be your focal point but you draw a line through whole space from one wall to the other across the floor and this is your access so this is going to help you set up your furniture in a way that it's like centered on that focal point so your couch centered on the fireplace and then the line continues across to the other wall and you need to put something there. So it doesn't feel heavy on one side where the fireplaces and light on the other so the very best example. I can give you visualize. This is an a bedroom. The focal point in bedroom is in the headboard because the bed is like the whole point of the space so when you draw that access through the headboard you drought across to the other wall and you need to put something on that other wall so that often looks like a dresser he know. Maybe there's a tv on top of the dresser. Maybe there's a big mere artwork but you find a lot of times. It's like bed and then dresser across that is why they're doing that because that creates balance from one side of the room to the other and don't get hung up on these terms like balanced lines activities zones access like you don't need the terms to be able to implement these concepts into your space and health..
"each quadrant" Discussed on Harvesting Nature’s Wild Fish and Game Podcast
"Make a twenty inch circle and then it just draw crosshairs through in count. How many are each quadrant. So you get like pizza pie and you just think it's a good way to do it if you want to see its bounds. Yep exactly you can get pretty scientific about if you want so. But i think the basic messages if you're going to obviously if you use a red dot than you can s the advantage is that if your gun does pattern left or right or up or down a little bit you can adjust for that versus bead. You're doing kentucky winded which compensating yeah never know so but if you know what you have then you can repeatedly you know you can do it. Then that's i mean there's a the nice part about using to beat is simple rate like nothing fail. There's no battery run out. And but you just need to practice in nowhere guns going to hit with the best load is now at the best load is will give you the best pattern so and there can be some guns. We'll shoot better dirty. Some guns shoot better clean You can try different loads. So i mean the new rage in turkey. Hunting is is this s which kind of bought in for youth wise. Like talking about jeremy. And i had my son out three years ago. And he missed a bird and We're using number five's three inch lead and show you guys at pattern. I had with number five three inch lead. And it's pretty poor at thirty five yards. Maybe two or three in the kill. He's to twenty game one age and and so this. Tss constant super shot at staf is basically with number nine hs uses a lot smaller tiny pellet. Helen you can shoot a ton more pellets in a in a sub gauge and twenty year. I mean there's guys just wing more dense wave ordinance. It's it's like a eighteen grams per centimeter cube verses led is like i think it's eleven and a half or twelve so i mean it's almost fifty percent more dance in so with the smaller pellet to you get better penetration and there's less wind resistance so ballistics it's better so basically like the number nine shot with s.'s. As good or better than number five lead Men so you know for sub gauge shotguns. my opinion. It's that's the way to go. it's expensive it's expensive. It's very expensive now. Yeah like looking at the other day. All it was six dollars around or something like the harry. Maybe more seven the onto those wind. Chaz long beard. I think that's what i'm using now. Those she's a twelve gauge. You don't really need the dss. There's long beard. It's got this like would buffer in it and it's pretty incredible pattern. Just get out of a twelve gauge shotguns snap three and a half inch mag the thing knocks you on your. But yeah so you guys. All have mangum falcons yet shooting. I shoot threes three. I'm i've been using my son's twenty age. I take him out until he gets one..

And now the same storms are pushing across the plains and producing heavy rains possible flooding from Louisiana all the way up to Illinois and will probably be on the east or the northeast quadrant of the United States and the eastern part of the United States in the next couple of days.

"each quadrant" Discussed on Ghost Town
"The cia as outdoor secret. I'm rebecca leave. I'm jason horton and this is a ghost town. Cryptos sculpture located on the grounds of cia headquarters created by sculptor. Jim sanborn installed in nineteen ninety. This thousands of characters they contain encrypted messages in four sections three have been solved. The fourth section consists of ninety seven characters which remains on solved. This is cryptos. i love. I love this one. I find something to be so interesting. Can you imagine being the person hired to create the sculpture. And how much goes into it and how indicative it is of the mystery that surrounds the cia. Looked pretty much everything else. It's incredible especially because it's under lock and key very secretive. It's all hush hush but right in the front right there. It's there for really anyone to try to crack this code and they've been cracking the code since it's been installed only when you solve all four sections can you solve cristos. I again just the idea of having a coded sculpture outside. The cia is so fucking cool. I love it so much. I love the people probably work for such a long time to crack each quadrant. But of course want remains unsolved. That's for you listener. You're just solve a real quick when you have a minutes to let us know jim. Sanborn worked with the employees ed. She'd from pronouncing that right to come up with the cryptographic systems on the sculpture. It's twelve foot high. It's made of copper granite and wood and it kind of looks. I kind of almost a computer paper kind of woven. It looks really cool and it just has a bunch of rando letters. Sorry to get technical everybody. That's what's on there and each section is separate and how you decide how you're gonna crack this code is really up to the person trying to do it. And there's been different methods to crack different things. And according to sanborn the sculpture contains a riddle within a riddle which will be solvable. After only all four encrypted passages have been deciphered..
No. 17 West Virginia hosts No. 23 Kansas to begin 6-game gauntlet
"Saturday. Two pm eastern number twenty three kansas at number seventeen west virginia inside joe missoula coliseum. You can watch it on. Cbs america's most watched network is the network stars west virginia minus to give me a reason to pick kansas in this game. There's none right got a is. It justifiable k. This has dropped four straight road games by an average of nine point eight points. Those games were oklahoma state. Baylor oklahoma tennessee. I figure we're in agreement here. I'll take baba steam. I gets gets a win. We'll be stunning. But there's just not anything to base picking kansas right now gotta go. Wvu kansas six and six in the first two quadrants with all six losses coming in the first quadrant cases is not bad cases. Just isn't great. They're just like look but one obvious difference between early in the season in like recently. The jalen wilson is five of twenty six from the field in his past three games. This should nineteen point two percent. He averaged sixteen point three points and nine point zero rebounds in kate us first game. We were like whoa look at this. Now he's past seven games didn't seven point one points five point seven rebounds so he has slipped. Kansas has slipped west. Virginia by the way hasn't been great five and four in the past nine games three and one in the past. That's that's okay but five and four in the past night. yeah. I mean again. Kansas lost four straight road games. And i know it's not going into joe missoula coliseum under normal circumstances but like it's still a rogaine. They haven't been good in games west virginia minus two. I'll lay the number
Michigan State's NCAAT chances kaput? Who winds up with No. 1 overall seed?
"On thursday night gonzaga beat san diego ninety sixty two so the top ring zags sixteen to no second ranked bears fifteen no deadly. Somebody asked me a question on twitter yesterday. So let me present it to you if zaka and baylor both inner selection sunday undefeated. Which team is the number. One overall seed in the ncaa tournament. I- address this exact thing in my power rankings. This week baylor's the number one overall seed. That's not going to be up for too much debate. I don't think baylor will have at that point. Accrued many more quad one wins and road wins tougher opponents in gonzaga. So i don't think it will be up for much debate and that's before you even get into the question of whether or not Those teams have not played in their league tournaments. I think you're right. The question was presented to me about the number one overall seed the instability tournament. And then about whether i would adjust the top twenty five and one and i will not adjust the top twenty five and one i if i will not drop gonzaga from number one unless it loses. And that's been one of my kinda rules since i've been doing this job. I don't punish number one teams unless they actually lose. The only time can remember. Doing it is win duke zairian cam and who was the other guy that played with them. Norlander see if you can remember this time that team duke zay on camera. tish yeah. He's from canada. Third third pick in the draft of first team. All american show trae jones. Trae jones was on that team. But it wasn't him jack white. It was not yet check why it was not the third pick. Javelin delory in the subsequent. Nba draft. His name was started with all our in the next letter was j. rj. They call him rj. Oh i think i've heard this guy You're gonna have to help me with the last name though. Rj bay. That's right that's right that's right. Yeah that was The yeah he was the other player on this. So that's the only time. I can remember dropping a number one team without the number one team. Losing just silly to have anybody other than duke number one after that performance against that opponent on that stage. So i've done it before. But i will not do it. In in this scenario to punish gonzaga without losing would be to punish them. Strictly on league affiliation. And i won't do that but that said you're exactly right. Both schools have five quadrant. One wins right now. But according to the net the current net rankings baylor has six more quad one opportunities in the regular season. Gonzaga has just one so baylor could end up and likely would end up with basically twice as many quad wins as gonzaga. So i agree with you on selection sunday. If both teams are undefeated baylor based on the resume would be number one overall seed regardless of whether the people and the top twenty five one or anything else actually reflects
"each quadrant" Discussed on 600 WREC
"You gone Gone, You gone, You God! That intern started a movement after another fan tweeted that he believed all you con fan should follow suit in penance for doubting their Huskies. Numerous fans began posting videos of themselves taking shots of hot sauce. They did it again when you conned went to Butler and one on Saturday, and more fans joined in after a close win, not at on Monday at two. Paul, now Yukon related charity, called The Husky Project has stepped in asking for $5 donations when people do the shots akin to the LS Ice bucket Challenge and It's worked less than two days into the challenge. The husky project had been tagged in numerous videos and raised over $10,000. Not bad for a couple of days. Work for a charity. Good story reminds me one time in college at Rutgers. We had we had this chicken place called Cluck You chicken? Oh, yes, very familiar. Most folks in New Jersey are familiar with And and we got the what was called thermonuclear hot sauce on the chicken? Yes, And so obviously it's extremely hot, and it's burning our lips right where we're watching hockey like on Saturday. He's burning the outside of our mouths. It's so hot, and the only thing we had was beer, so the alcohol's making you worse right in like idiots. We just keep drinking more because it's cold. At least then that's right. Rory, You have to drink more. We didn't have milk, so we wound up actually. Pressing slices of bread against our face. That is just the most college story that you've ever told on the air. Nobody's ever had a more college story that entire sequence from start to finish the hot sauce, drinking more beer to try and douse the flames and then the slices of bread, actually pressing slices of bread against our face to try to absorb whatever chemicals causing the burn on her face is college. And Tic Tac er, Speaking of food aren't getting tired of sharing pandemic home food hacks and we are entirely of talking about them. Yet their latest trending obsession involves sectioning off tortillas for an ultra need case idea like sandwich. All it takes is one slice that goes halfway through the center of the tortilla as well as four or more ingredients that could be sprinkled. Onto each quadrant. When the arrangement is done home chefs pick up a corner of the tortilla and fold it in half three times to create a single triangle before they pan Fry grill or pull out a panini maker. The trend has largely gone viral under the tortilla trend Hashtag, which has countless videos listed under it that amount to more than 2.5 billion. Views with a B This very clever. Oh, yeah. I was getting hungry while today this will be something I will be trying out this weekend. I've got a bunch of tortillas just kind of sitting around in my fridge right now. They need something to be done with. And I think it's gonna happen. So you immediately when you say There are like three steps to folding and haves and all that kind of stuff and heady ingredients that but that's when I speed dialed my local Chinese food restaurant for Take out that's just too much your standard Friday orders and top that for sure.

A Star Wars and Marvel bonanza
"The price hike. It seemed inevitable. I mean it's still cheaper than netflix and considerably cheaper than hvl. Max i would say if people ask me whether or not get disney plus i tend to say like star wars and marvel. Do you have kids at which point. It's definitely word this the sheer volume of content. I'd say it's ok. Okay no for sure. I mean for me. I've got i've got kids. So disney plaza lock. I think anyone who's got a family. This is this is our ramaz. Get a among the many different streaming options that we have nowadays Let's get into the shows. I know star wars near and dear to your heart. So let's let's go there first. They announced or talked about ten shows. Let's let's break out. What are some of the new shows that you're excited for low because of out vehicle order Talk about soka. I dawson brought the character life in live action for the first time in season. Two of the mandalorian and that that's a lot like a backdoor pilot for this show. It's just like suggested that she had her own adventures. going on. this was not a surprise. It is a delight though. It is an interesting we. I think we talked about this earlier. The you know the fact that not to get too deep spoiler as they chee. She was offered a role to mentor. Baby yoda no. You really need to go somewhere else. They felt like definitely had that back door pilot vibe to because like i'm sorry i'm off to other adventures. I've got my own thing. Got to deal with and allow that did seem like a setup for its own show. I'm actually late my own. Tv show salena catch trade this game and it gave a pretty clear idea of what she was up to not to get into splutters between between that and the rebels finale. From a few years ago we have a good idea what her objectives are for this show. Yeah we don't wanna get too deep into spoilers. Maybe we'll we'll devote a whole episode of that later on this year to speculate on what what that might be both water. Somebody other shows that that were announced. It was the next big one we knew this was coming for a long time but they talked about a little with last night and give us a sense that or confirmed that it was filming next march And that christian hated christiansen was returning as dark later. Very very exciting news. That one definitely took me by surprise. tactic territory hidden christmas activator. That's that's interesting. As opposed to advocate skywalker. Which would suggest that he appeared in flashbacks as anikin. But saying he's vader would suggest maybe that he'll appear in four seasons or something that is unclear. It's definitely it's intriguing. Another property was with a character. That's near to many star. Wars fans hearts landau gets his own show yet. These were ten on the ground because we don't know if it's going to be live action or a cgi animated series. I feel like donald glover should be involved. Because he was so well received solo so fingers crossed that he will be returning and then there are a long list of other ones kind of run through them really quickly because we unfortunately only have so much time on this podcast okay so there was the ropes quadrant movie directed by patty jenkins of wonder woman fang which is really exciting. That's super cool. That'd be a fighter pilots. There's the bat batch which will be a follow up to the clone wars at those cartridge orig- use there. There's adore which is about caffeine door from roquan. There's tyco tgi movie which we still don't know what that's about our coop concert raiders of the republic. Which is set around the time. Line of the mandalorian and could be about current june because she became a marshal of the new republic but again that remains unclear star wars visions which is automated shorts from abbey craters. That's really cool quite different the acolytes which obviously is that almost excited with the malls because that is set in the era of the high republic which is two hundred years before the phantom menace. And it's like about some sort of a dark site warrior and it could reveal stuff about the Era some different cool. So those a lot. I know being a super star wars fan. I want to get your opinion on this. Is this too much star wars. It certainly was too much reward announcement. I think parceled out over several years. It should be okay especially since the movies will be quite so frequent. Like i remember when it was only like six months between the last year and solo that felt overwhelming with tv. It's a little different as so you can kind of watch out. I'm at home in a more relaxed environment. it's a lot of star wars. There's no escaping that. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Brian made a good point before we start recording that you know a lot of these might be one off shows ryden. Obi wan will probably be a one-off sled that that kind of makes sense that they'd wanna have this pipeline but it was a lot to digest all in really what was about thirty minutes a thirty minute presentation just for the star wars section. They're just kept pumping out one announcement after another rapid fire a lot but also i think that's partly a function of the fact that they're no conventions this year star wars celebration was
Can You Build a Business Alone?
"Can you build a business alone totally by yourself? Well, the simple answer is yes but what kind of business you could literally open eliminate stand in your front yard and that's considered technically a business providing a product for a fee you make lemonade youth set up the table you sell it. The fee done deal but we obviously are not talking about lemonade stand. We're talking about a business that could actually stain your lifestyle and make it a comfortable one. You know if you're going to go into business and start something and really work hard on you WanNa make sure it's worth your while. So has the potential to make you financially free. Is this possible. Yes, it is. But there are caveats and we'll talk about they are in a moment. This can be done. I've seen it done and I've done it myself where I literally ran the whole business by myself. No external help not even a freelancer no external services nothing. Just software and my time it was a services business. I was creating business websites on wordpress for Mike cline since is over a decade ago and I did everything myself the marketing the sales, the service, the actual craft of building the website, the maintenance the the customer calls the invoicing, the financing everything, and I've seen a lot of entrepreneurs start out this way, and this is what's called being self employed. This is not being an entrepreneur, an entrepreneur somebody who leverages resources and time in order to produce results for their customers and to be free. Of the business meaning that they can step away from it for a month or two, not do a single lick of work and the business continues to go because they have teammates they have pleased they have people working on things. The system goes they build the system they make the hires the put in the assets they put in all the things they need to do so that it runs by itself that's what an entrepreneur really is. A self employed person is somebody who actually works for themselves. Very similar to what I was doing when I was doing my business consulting firm and I was building websites. This is very similar to somebody who's a doctor and running their own clinic, a chef that runs her own restaurant there the business owner and the talent, and the really the product. They're really the the thing they're selling the service, but it is technically a business but one of the things I've learned really early on about twenty years ago is a big difference was self. Employed person and an entrepreneur I learned this from Robert Kiss Sakis Rich Dad poor dad his book and he has this four quadrant system that talks about like you please you have self employed you have entrepreneurs and you have investors and really these are the four ways people make money in this world and the top two quadrants are the employed and self employed in the bottom two quadrants are entrepreneur and investor, and you really WanNa be on the bottom quadrants because those two quadrants. Leverage Time Leveraged Talent. They're not exchanging their time for money. So I worked in my business building I saw the people. But when I was not doing that I wasn't earning money, there's no way I could step away from it because my clients wouldn't get what they paid for. So let's just flat out say, yes, this is possible but you're going to have to do as a self employed person because that's how it works. You have to hire somebody else you have to empower somebody else to do that work for you. In order for you to be free of that attachment to the business or attachment to delivering that service or delivering that product. Now having said that that's still a business being self employed is still a business and might enjoy that you might like that kind of business people that love control and love their craft will love this type of business. Now, I am of the opinion even if you love your craft photographer, you can benefit with some key hires a manager somebody who deals your finances someone had to go she your rates. Somebody to build your website all that kind of stuff is worth having people hired either as a freelancer or as an employee or part time to help you just focus on your craft as a photographer and not deal with the other logistical things because that's your magic sauce, right? That's that's your. Special talent and you should focus on that as a service provider. But even if you didn't, you can still run that business. Now having said that again, there's limitations. There's only so far. You can take that business when I was building. For my clients, I was pretty inexpensive the beginning, but then I raised my prices raise prices. But even if I raised my prices to an astronomical amount, let's say for example, I was charging forty or fifty thousand dollars a website I would need at least six weeks to create that website and deliver it to the client and receive my fifty grand. So even if I was charging fifty grand a website, I can really only bring on about eight clients a year given you know. Holiday season things like that, and that's not bad. But at the end of the day, I cannot make more than four hundred, thousand dollars a year in revenue, which is a great number. You know that's not a bad number as a pretty healthy business in revenue but that's basically my ceiling. I, don't have any more hours in the day I. Don't have any more weeks in the year and if I don't WanNa leverage my time and I don't want to hire somebody that's my ceiling.
Star Wars: Squadrons launches on PS4, Xbox and PC
"Podcast outlet. But I I wanNA talk this weekend, my friend Star Wars quadrants. It's hitting. You could say it's still hitting store shelves but for most people out there in the middle of pandemic, they're still going to be buying a digitally because digitally is becoming more and more a reality as far as the way people are buying their games. It's hitting. Italy. And also retail store shelves this weekend. Price Point is not too bad. Thirty, nine, ninety nine. That's really something that surprised a lot of people. Early reviews for the single player adventure have come out and they are pretty good. Pretty strong. A seventy eight and even a nine here and they're very impressed by it as far as the reviews and things of that nature. But I, want to hear your thoughts to meet the multiplayer experiences. Obviously, what's going? GonNa, sell this game because? No matter how good this aired of is it's going to be something that is not can't be very long for forty dollar game. You know maybe at six eight hours something like that I think what would most people are saying it's going to be roughly but still it's still worth your time but I want to hear your thoughts on the future for star were squadrons you could keep putting deal seon this. Deal see they're supposedly minimizing the amount of transactions because the he got for star, wars battlefront and all that. which we saw come up again earlier this week for fee in their advertising on a kids magazine thought was really way to go but I want to hear your thoughts on Star Wars squadrons is something you're excited to play starting this weekend. I'm going to go ahead and say this right now I just cancelled my playstation plus membership a couple of weeks ago just because I was getting ready to anticipate the release of the five and I just wanted that and of just delay I didn't really need to pay for right now I've got two or three months off for by my next council but that's about to change my wife is going out of town this weekend and at forty dollars why Would I not buy this game and play it for three days straight it's going to be fun. I do WANNA give a shout out to Charlie Hall over at. Polygon. Did a great review on a really in depth but he talks about how he spent three days on the cockpit and he just got lost and watching the reveal trailer for the multi-player stuff I got law cement as lot of customization do fighter itself for your player lot of customization all around. This is going to be a really really great game for forty dollars and I can't believe that's the starting point that is coming out at I always feel like there should be a catch I almost feel like there should be something like
AI and the Optimization Airline Meals - with Kurt Muehmel of Dataiku
"So. Glad to have you with us here we're GONNA. Be Talking about a rather novel interesting use case around optimizing what food items airlines have, which is just just a really interesting example personalization inventory management Hugh, tee off the problem like what this airline was going through why was relevant to the business, and then we'll talk about a after. The sure thing Dan. Thanks so much for for having really happy to be here to talk about it and yeah. So basically, you know one of our customers is isn't airline Let's say international carrier flying around the world. As you can imagine you having flown on planes yourself maybe not a lot in the last year. But too much. Exactly. Yeah I know the feeling you know the experience they come down the aisle and they're asking, do you want the chicken? Do you want beef or do you want the vegetarian? And maybe you've seen up in the ahead of you that man that chicken looks really good and Kinda get your heart set on the chicken. Got Your answer all teed up flight attendant comes by What would you like to eat? I, want the chicken and say I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry we're all out on because everyone's chicken. So one right you're having a frustrating experience now imagine what happens then when they get to the back of the aisle and they did their best they over stacked. Meals meaning that they bought a bunch of meals. They spent the money on those meals. They put them on the airplanes the heated up, they flew them around the world. And what did they have to do with them upon their arrival at the destination led to just throw them out right which is bad. It's bad for from a cost perspective it's bad from the actual cost of food up an environmental perspective would waste sure. But also just burning that fuel justifying around unused beef dinners right and so that's kind of context that they. Were in you know looking problem both from inventory management, you know the logistics of getting the right food in the right place at the right time. But also from a customer experience standpoint where they want to maximize the pleasure, the the positive experience that you have in the more often they can allow you to say or they can say, yes, of course we have that. The happier they're going to be. So they were looking at that problem really from multiple angles and trying to solve for multiple constraints at the same time, which is I think pretty pretty interesting right where you have a single use case, which is both a logistics, use case, a customer experience use case and one where you know they were really hoping that they could go beyond kind of the traditional method that they were using for stacking their planes. Yeah. So again, different, not not unlike a lot of complicated business solutions you you've got. A couple of axes you WANNA maximize right it's very unlikely. You're going to get to the very top right corner you WanNa be somewhere in the in the top right quadrant you me and might not be able to be in the corner getting even to the quadrant could be so impactful how were they solving this problem before handing? How are they estimating? Okay. Well, the Chicago Flight historically has more beef like are they tracking sort of consumption from different takeoff locations or whatnot? How how are they trying to square the circle before? Yet, and so of course, a big part of it was that they did have that historical data but the way didn't generally the planning was being done was with basically meal planners. Kind of part of the inflate experienced team just planning what they thought would be best given given what they know given the feedback that they're getting from the flight crews about the quality of the meals, the quantity of the meals in what they were serving. But again, it was a very manual process in very much based on human intuition about how they would just look at the feedback that they were getting look at the number of meals. uneaten look at the meals that were consistently running out and then do their best, which is what you see. Often with a solutions rate historically, people have been doing an okay job. But where the promise really is a is often on those use cases where as a matter of fact, thanks to how the algorithm works it's able to process a lot more information it's able to ingest all. Of that historical data in really actually come up with a better prediction than even the you the the line of business experts would have been able to do themselves. Yeah. I I think this is the great promise I think in order to get there. Now, we'll transition into into the one here. Again, I hope for the listeners tuned in this as a representative case of anything inventory anything personalization. I wanted to pick this use case because it's just airline meals is just such a unique low funky funky. And Fun with this clearly to get to that top right quadrant to do better than human intuition, we would need to have a grounding in reality that machines could train on and it feels to me like well, we need to know maybe we'd know forever given flight. What did we have an inventory I have no idea that this was track. But what what do we have at takeoff? What are we have it land which items were thrown out. So when we take off like we can presume which ones were. Eaten based on what was gone, and then we would need to potentially in an ideal universe. Know How many people said I'd like to check in. They were told well, we don't have it anymore. That's probably not trackable. No, he's got a checklist or clicker that they're entering their but but it would seem like, okay are those data points retrain train off or is there something broader that this system had to draw from? Well, what's involved to calibrate this problem because we gotta have that baseline data but what is it? For sure. Yeah. So what's what was great was that they did have all the knowledge of what came onto the flight in what came off the flight but to your point, right they did not have any sense of every time. There was a sort of a frustration point unfair other than anecdotal report you know kind of self reported from the flight routes sort of. Things that's not going to be enough volume to
5 tropical cyclones are in the Atlantic at the same time for only the second time in history
"Tonight for the first time in nearly fifty years. They've ocean is home to five rapidly growing named tropical cyclones with one hurricane sally set to slam into the southern coast tomorrow for the very latest I'm joined by ABC News. Chief meteorologist Ginger Zee now Ginger Hurricane Sally is clearly strengthening as it approaches your location in Alabama? Where do you see the storm heading? Juju I'm in the heart of mobile and you've got things like that building with sandbags in front of it, and that is for good reason from here back through coastal Mississippi that's where the brunt of the storm is going to impact. So let's look at on the satellite got lot better organized as we went through today, and that's going to keep going as it moves really painfully slow to the West northwest it will finally start to make that northern tick tomorrow afternoon and evening, and we expect landfall sometime around midnight or thereafter early Wednesday morning. So this is a slow. Storm that means that rain is going to be a big time issue and part of the slowdown is that stationary front making it almost defense you see we stopped the clock at about midnight. It looks like it should make landfall somewhere close to Pascagoula Mississippi if it does by the way, make landfall in Mississippi as a cat to that's the strongest we've seen in. Mississippi. Since Katrina in two thousand five that looks like wrong place wrong time. Now, there are always multiple threats as a storm approaches. There are already dire storm surge projections. What worries you the most about Sally. Storm surges what loses most life and property and storms. So six to nine feet in some places others up to eleven. Let me break it all down for you get warnings all the way from eastern Louisiana through the Florida panhandle. Now, it breaks down and closer to the center of the storm. In the northeast quadrant, we call it the dirty side of the storm. That's where you'll pick up some of the hefty so. From Mobile Bay. Back through deloise pass Christiane that's where we're most concerned. Now we also have rainfall and I don't want anyone if they're inland to say, Oh, this is just a coastal storm. By no means, you get fifteen to twenty inches on top of that storm surge right at the coast. That's not good especially here in mobile but go up to Gumri or even Atlanta and you could see a half a foot arrange.
Cyber Power Index highlighting Australian Governments gaps in cyber capability
"Like any INFO Technology Sector security has plenty of indexes flooding around or get. Indexes collided by vendors and people trying to sell things to us I thought this for Senate index was. Useful because it doesn't come from I accompany product. It say independent academic attempt to benchmark Com, sub security capability and intent from nation sites It appealed to make per couple of reasons may not have had A to do with Bill Center in the past spend a little bit of Thanh. Talking to their academics in previous roles and particularly locked the way that This report sets metrics that up designed to objectively major subsidy maturity in nations So it says what are the kind of things that we could judge the intent of a nation in the obscurity spice and one of the kind of things that we could use to objectively major capability. And it tells an interesting story in Australia Australia's categorized in the higher intent, low capability quadrant and the reason for that is because when the the objective metrics this reporter applied to the statements made by by government ministers by government departments, entities about what our intent is. Assab security spice. Where about the most ambitious nation in the world for ask security attend? But. Then when you look at what our actual capabilities against that intent on again measured in a series of objective metrics. We fold anti sixteenth in that space. So, FA May that told a pretty familiar story because this over promising on delivering stories. One that I think is familiar to a lot of. People in the Strand security sector. In the context of these trying government's actions since the twenty six, Day sub, security strategy. A lot of announcement to be my bet when you follow up way those announcements. In the years after that have been made you say less deleted then was announced to the media. Will what's on the industry? Kodak in the two thousand, sixteen strategy that was undefended at least out of the Prime Minister's office. This one is looking out at a ten years. The two thousand twenty strategy is looking at at the ten year timeframe. And proposing one point six, billion, dollar funding. Backdrop, but a lot of that is going into law enforcement and as you say might be into that capability. What's your take on the strategy itself? Overall as you say, it's it's another announcement is on the strategy whether it's not as another thing but certainly yet your thoughts on the strategy itself and where maybe else we could have been in twenty twenty from the twenty six danes strategies. Have you have you seen that the two thousand twenty strategy's building on the twenty, sixteen or? Taking a completely new direction. While the that, you can certainly say the why the two thousand twenty strategy is reaction to experience the twenty six strategy That the twenty sixteen subsequently strategy had a very large number of of objectives and Nisha announced under it. I think the government found the experience of trying to implement those very large number projected initiatives again, adopted under outcome Tambo's prime ministership around the breathing bruising exercise because the twenty twenty strategy dramatically rationalize is temptation I'm say that the broad spread of of initiatives and objectives under the strategy a kind of a toddler. Your decide that the Gospel confessed about ninety percent of the funding. Associated with these twenty twenty strategy he's allocated to security agencies So it goes into building. Capabilities with particularly the is day but also other security agencies on. Enforcement agencies like the the I pay, and that's well and good We have I think outstanding internationally recognized capabilities within is. and this is the conduct that you have to keep investing in order to. Maintain those capabilities in my time that that international ranking. Suppose big Criticism that that libraries had is one that we've been exploring for at the loss twelve months and that's really When you look at security policy to strike the problem is the ability to project those capabilities out of the silos of how defense and security agencies. To the problems in Australia Com in terms of lifting a bench, mock the baseline up security security. Brazil and Sada resilience across the Australian government trying economy You know there's a lot of examples of that. Wall is day is absolutely world standard. Saab resiliency combined entities is as at the government's own description reminding at relatively low levels. you know the is days top full became mandatory in the. Seventies ago now. had a slew of a straight national ordered office inquiry since then. when you type them all up on like twenty nine percent of Kamal entities compliant with all the top four. Seven years after theoretically became mandatory say interesting. Is Connect between very high capability. Inside Is Day lower levels of saga resilience and more broadly throughout government not to sign story that we see in the corporate sector unites now at banks and Al. Telcos, absolately will class intends to their sub security posture. But you only have to sort of take one stiff through the down. In the I six navy top fifty. And you start seeing. Very, different levels of resilience.
1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens
"So my episode today. is about the nineteen eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption. So now, we weren't alive then even though we were not alive, then it was you know years until Jillian. Many years. Until we were born. We are in our. Mid Twenty. S. So we're very youthful. Yeah. We say what's a CD or whatever I don't know anything I couldn't even pretend to be a teenager because I have no idea went technology. Don T TIKTOK ON THE TIKTOK You know on the TIKTOK so. Nineteen Eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption has a lot of parallels to what's going on in the world today, but it's an interesting story. So to to start with for our non US friends and Non West Coast friends, I didn't know the details about this when I started researching it but Mount Saint Helen's which is known as a lot lot to the indigenous lets people and Lou wit. Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I am rock. You like a hurricane I talked a little bit about that about volcanoes in that episode. So if you want to refresh your memory about the basics of what's in a volcano check that out episode sixty one, it's very good. Thank you. So on March Twentieth Three Forty Five PM Pacific Standard Time, which everything will be NPS T. Shallow magnitude four point two earthquake centered below the volcano's north flank signal the volcanoes return from one hundred, twenty three years of hibernation. A gradually building earthquake swarm saturated area seismographs, and started to climax at about noon on March twenty fifth reaching peak levels in the next two days including an earthquake registering five point one on the Richter scale. A total of one hundred and seventy four shocks of magnitude. Two point six greater were recorded during those two days. That's a lot. Yeah. So geologists in that area are like look is no not a great sign. Initially. There was no direct sign of eruption but small earthquake induced avalanches of snow and ice were reported from aerial observations. So this mountain is shaking and you know stuff is falling off. It's not it's not nothing. At twelve thirty, six PM on March twenty seventh phreatic eruptions which are explosions of steam caused by magma suddenly heating groundwater. So that's like a quick like spur. Of, like Ash and Steam K ejected and smashed rock from within the old summit crater. Excavating a new crater, two, hundred and fifty feet wide. And sending an ass column about seven thousand feet into the air. So you yeah, knock. Great. So by this date along, east trending fracture system had also developed across the summit area. So there's cracks forming in the summit. This was followed by more earthquake swarms in a series of explosions that said ash even higher above there. And most of this ash fell between three and twelve miles from its fendt. But some was carried hundred fifty miles south to bend Oregon or two hundred and eighty five miles east to spokane Washington. So the ash went pretty far and those who were like what the What is happening here? So? then. A second new crater and a blue flame were observed on March twenty ninth.
The 2 Choke Points in Selling and their 3 Causes
"Hello and welcome. My name is Greg. Martinelli and this is the egg sales professional podcast. The purpose of this podcast is to make you the best salesperson or sales manager possible in agribusiness today we're talking about the to chokepoints in selling and their three causes. which part of the sales process are you stuck on well? Every manufacturing, process, service, provider or business unit has a choke point. Point. Every salesperson also has them in their selling process and a choke point is the number one limiter in process. It's the one process that one service or that one step in your selling strategy that holds up all the others. Last time we covered the topic of stress more specifically. We covered your stress. The egg sales profession who goes out on a daily basis and calls on. On livestock and crop producers today we're going to cover one critical cause of your stress, and that is the chokepoint in your selling process in a feed mill. The chokepoint is typically the pelleting and drying process of the pellets in a grain elevator. It's the speed of the dump pit, and possibly drying grain. In what year in many manufacturing process. It's the packaging line in other words. Words you can process potatoes into potato chips fairly easy, except for the last step, which is putting in a bag and putting in a box that may take maybe the choke points what slows everything else down working with sales, people in all different aspects of agribusiness I can tell you. The most common points are prospecting and closing if you look at the selling process in a linear. Linear fashion it might go something like this fine prospects on them. Ask questions present products and services close follow up complete the new customer paperwork train them on how to use the products and services coordinate future orders, and then provide ongoing support to ensure a long term relationship with your customer that might be including handling complaints and expanding the purchases with your company last mentioned the most. Most common chokepoints are prospecting enclosing have also found there are three common causes, and they are lack of knowledge, a lack of skill in a lack of value. We'll start off with the first. One lack of knowledge is the easiest remedy. oftentimes a sales person just doesn't know the steps involve or how to implement them with their customers. DISC is a great example if you're not familiar. Familiar, you should be I. Talk about it all the time I. Think it's Great. It isn't a four quadrant system or D I S C, or sometimes they use colors to depict the four quadrants typically salespeople set out in their territory and sell based on their own style. The problem is the customer doesn't want you to sell in your style. They want you to sell in their. Their style for example, if a salesperson is a data techie, Kinda person, they love to fill the presentations with data they sell on data, even if their customers hate data and technical infant, information will sales, people can remedy this with training, workshops, sales, meetings and experience to increase their knowledge and open up this chokepoint. Let's get to the next chokepoint and that is a lack of skill. This in this example, the salesperson knows what to do. They just aren't very good at it yet. And the yet is an important part of that sentence. Many salespeople fail to implement what they know they need to do. Because they're either afraid of making a mistake or they will look incompetent. Many of them worry. They will appear pushy or the worst being sales. -I, so they stick to their old ways of doing things. You need to become comfortable. Comfortable with trying new techniques to improve your skill. Let me give you an example in the sports. World Golf is a great example of a lack of skill. It's a very simple game. If you think about you, take a little club. You hit a ball down the fairway and into a Little Cup. Eighteen Times as Robin. Williams pointed out one of his comedy routines. It's not rocket science. However, it can take a lifetime to develop that skill how? How do we develop the skills? Well, certainly, when you know, have some knowledge how to hold the club and all that Kinda stuff, but most importantly we just need to get out there and golf and put it into practice and develop our skill in sales cold. Calling is a great example when it comes to the lack of skill as a sales person you know of your roles is to find call on and sell new customers, however when you. You get out there the fear of meeting someone new kicks, in and you stumble on connecting or asking good questions on the sales call the socializing part at the opening of the sales called goes well. Then you start asking a few questions related to your products and try to get down to the business of selling you get stuck on what to ask and fear upsetting the prospect, so you go back to the social discussions on weather and crop. and. Local events etcetera. You gain little to no information which would help you. Come back for your next appointment. You are now stuck in that called. Let me know if you ever need anything or any of our products, which is right next to I'm happy with what I'm doing now I'll keep you in mind zone. We all get stuck in these zones, and they are no fun. We'll the last cause for a choke point in your selling process might. Might, simply be a lack of volume, not enough prospects, not enough good prospect, not asking enough good questions, not asking enough closing style questions, not following up enough, nor fast enough and dropping the ball with a lack of good prospects is a very common limiter. I see sales people
How To Stay Focused on What You Want
"About this focused thing. How to stay focused on what you want. In, particular. As a kid I grew up in. Manassas Virginia. Suburbs of Washington DC. I grew up at a time when every single summer mom and dad went off to work, and kids were just latchkey. Kids is that we were I? Think it was. And I feel that way. I guess it was that way, but we'd get up in the morning. My mom would be off to the office and what I. What would I do? I would wake up and go. Wow, I'm often a grand adventure. Not sure I called it that, but it sure felt that way. Running through the the the battlefields of the bull run national park. The MANASSAS national battlefield all kinds of places, just kind of doing stuff all day long all day, endlessly nonstop adventure, and in the evening it would probably end. In a game of hide and seek. And we play that game. So as grow into adults I've done the same thing over the years I had that same spirit of adventure. Go out and go go, but then something happens as we start doing the adult thing. Have you noticed? That? We tend to find other things that are more important. Shopping and Eating food and paying bills and feeding the dog and taking care of the kids and mowing the lawn, and all that kind of aid is so important. It seems like when you come. Become an adult. That's all you have to do as a kid. I. Guess Cleaning. Your Room was important, but it wasn't so important that you're going to go on your grand adventure unless you had to write. But also kind of fall into that now I. Know for fact that as you were a child and maybe a young adult. You had all these ideas in these dreams in your head. How was life going to be? What were you going to create? And then life began to happen, and suddenly you're focus shifted to get out of bed, Doodoo go go go go back to bed, right? If. You had a good day that that's what would happen. It's my guess is happening right now. There's more that these days than ever before Stephen Covey used to say we shouldn't be living in the urgency and the crazies zone. If you're willing to be an important zone, that's where things happen. That are good life. That's where you're focused needs to be. Right now there's a lot of urgent out there. Crazy? Trying to control stuff, trying to wonder what to think about things trying to just trying to navigate the world as it is today, but I've asked you a question if I may. And certainly when it comes to focus. When did day-to-day tasks? Become more important than achieving lifelong dreams and goals. It didn't by the way. It's just things that we do so. The very first thing that I want to draw your attention to is to draw your attention off. Because if you're focused on the stuff that pops in your life all day every day I got news for you. There's going to be more tomorrow. It keeps uncommon. And what happens is your in fact distracted. What is attraction well? It's a form of focus, isn't it? What do you mean Scott? Distraction is not focused. WHAT'S THE AD is focused on that now that? So I'm going to ask you today. If you're having trouble focusing to think in abroad large picture, just remember Stephen Covey. The reminder that disdained the important quadrant if you will. In other words when I gets busy. When is Chris Crazy? When when you feel, things are urging. You gotTA run out. You gotTA. Take care of it now. If the fire is burning, you gotta go put it out now. What you fire can't burn your entire life. But you get used to it, don't you? You do. So you take care of it? And then you say where was I? What was really important that I wanted to do? Maybe a long time ago, maybe a week ago. What did you want to do? What did you accomplish for your family? What did you accomplish for the world? Where did you want to contribute? Or join a step up. Where'd you get off track just a little bit? It doesn't matter how long ago was could have been a year ago. It could've been twenty years ago. Makes no difference. All you really have to do today is say okay well. What was that become aware of? It think about these things in your life that are awfully important that you just not paying attention to. Guess what just happened. You just paid attention to it. You brought it back into focused in yet. Maybe it's on a computer file someplace. Maybe a post it note in the corner. Someplace maybe stuck to a mirror in the bathroom, but would you want to be focused on? In the middle of the day when you're focusing on a tuna, salad sandwich. You can't focus on what you really want to do, but you just. Did you just so just for this moment, just think. What should be focusing on? What's important to you? What's the most important thing in the world for you? It could be bigger than life right now could be bigger than anything. Be So huge can't even imagine doing it. But still lives, doesn't it?
"Hey Katie hi Ben What are we talking about today? We're GonNa talk about Galaxy and processes as a way to solve pretty gnarly regression problems. All right let's dig into the NARAL. You are listening to linear digressions. So what do you? What do you why? Why use the word gnarly? Yeah so let's talk about regression for a second and kind of build up some complexity in in our mental model here so that we are we arrive at gnarly in a minute or two and so just quizzing myself. A LINEAR regression would be. You've got a bunch of points and then you try to draw a line. That's representative of those points through it. Right yeah so. That's a pretty classic. That's usually the first thing that I think of. When somebody says regression is exactly that you have a bunch of points. You're trying to draw a line through it. The best fit line is the one that minimizes the difference between the line and the point for all of the points in your data set and a linear regression example of what we call a parametric model. So sometimes we talk about like the parameters of the models that people are fitting for so in this case the parameters of a linear regression will be things like the the slope of. If it's one dimensional the slope of the line it can be multidimensional or multi variant. So you can have the slope or the coefficients that multiply several different terms. And then there's the intercept term which is another parameter of the model so when you're fitting the model kind of a rule it says it has to have this. Functional form y equals M. X. Plus B And then you're finding 'em and be that best fit the data that you have which is your X.'s. In your wise so there's kind of a a set form a set mathematical functional form of the answer that you're trying to find And then there's a couple parameters that you're discreetly allowed to tune in in finding the solution subject to that mathematical form. Okay got it cool so but as I think. Probably a lot of our listeners know probably you know a linear regression is not the only type of regression. That's out there the for for the purposes of this conversation. Let's talk about some other functional forms that that mathematical equation could take so you could imagine if you saw a particular pattern of the data points like. Let's suppose your data points were hourly temperature measurements taken over the course of the year. So yes you wouldn't want to fit. That was just a line right. No no especially. If you have did you say hourly yeah. Yeah then that's probably GONNA be. I mean it's going to be curvy and it's probably going to be a sign. You SEIDEL. Because every day the temperature goes up and then it goes back down. Yes so there's a periodicity to the daily measurements that you're gonna take where on average. The temperature is higher in the day lower at night. See except you expect that in general. There's maybe a roughly twenty four hour period or pattern that you see of course there can be days when you have a cold front. That comes through first thing in the morning or whatever so it's not it's not guaranteed But in general that periodic structure is something that you generally expect to see and moreover there's going to be an annual trend where the temperatures are going to be higher or lower in the winter. So if you had ten years worth of data there might be Signing soil functions that you would have had a couple of different periods and then when you were fitting the data together a couple of different terms to account for the structure in the model and then boom you have another example of parametric model. That's totally different functional form but again we can use it to fit a regression model for temperature as a function of date and time. Okay so a parametric model can be one of many different shapes and it can also be a combination of those shapes. Is that right because you were saying in? If you had ten years with a data for example you probably have roughly speaking to sign waves. Yeah I would say instead of calling it shapes. I'M GONNA use a a slightly more precise term. Which would be like a mathematical form so by mathematical form? I mean do you have a function? That's signing soil in the case of the temperature measurements linear in the case of trying to fit align. Let me toss in a few more here. You could have something that is polynomial. So if you have a bunch of data that looks like it's Distributed kind of a parabolic shape than. Maybe you'RE GONNA fit it with a quadrant function or a quarterback function like x squared. Squared cubed yeah or like sums of terms like that yeah so those are all GonNa have different characteristic shapes and and and that's so coming back to the point you make yes. They have different shapes but In terms of when we're thinking about them as as mathematical objects they have different functional forms
A thrilling naval rescue off the coast of Nova Scotia
"When things start to go wrong on the open ocean sometimes they go really wrong really quickly. We make really good boats. We have state of the art navigation systems and we have all the emergency measures in the world to prevent disaster still. We don't belong there. The Sea is not our turf. And if you've ever seen a movie about a nautical disaster it's not that far off from reality about a year ago off the eastern coast of Canada. Things went really wrong really quickly. And all that state of the art technology wasn't working when that happens the boat and its crew can't do much outs but put out an emergency distress call and pray that somebody answers it and that those people are close enough to help and if they're really lucky at the ships that answer. The call are part of the Royal Canadian Navy and are prepared to undertake one of the most dramatic. Rescues that you'll hear about outside of a Hollywood pitch meeting. This is the story of that rescue. I'm Jordan he throwing. This is the big stars. Nick Taylor busy of Maclean's chronicled the whole dramatic tale. An hello first of all what is the McKenna McKenna is a forty nine foot yacht. It's called the Hanse four ninety five. It was on the inside of beautiful boat. I don't know a whole lot of boats but I saw some photos Of the cabin and it was decked out you could wash dishes on that thing you could sleep very comfortably and you could sail the high seas. It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan
