These Apps Make Black Friday Bargain Hunting a Breeze
"It's black friday and You know things have changed a lot because of the pandemic first of all you know things usually start on black friday maybe a day or two before. Now i mean deals have been going on for like a week already maybe a little longer and the holiday shopping season is just kind of be extended all the way through the end of the holidays mark. I wanted to talk about some cool apps that can help you find deals but let's talk real quick about how the pandemic has changed everything. I mean before a lot of people would go out to the stores. Wait in line. A lot of people would obviously shop online but most people are just going to be sticking to their computers. And it's all about who can refresh faster to get some of these big deals. Forget black friday. It's more like cyber friday and forget just this weekend i would say it started with amazon prime day like month and a half ago or so and leading all the way up to the holidays and even past it so no doubt that retailers. Many of them are also feeling the pinch. Maybe not the big guys like amazon but they wanna sell so they are discounting their tack and other items and consumers us. We want to save this year more than ever trying to stretch your dollar because of what's been going on so there are some deals to be had. It does help if you have an app a website that helps you along the way we know were there devoted solely to helping you find the best deal and we can cover a couple of my favorites. But yeah if you've got a favorite store to shop at or you're open to looking around and you're comfortable with shopping online. You're gonna find some great deals this year. Let's start off by talking about some of the most sought after products this time around and that's going to be new xbox series x or the ps live on their respective launched. As things were selling out. Right away i know game stop. Said they're going to have some units in stock in store a minimum of two of each. But those things are gonna go so fast these are like some of the hardest things that people can try to get this time around. I would say both the ps five and maybe to a slightly lesser extent. The xbox series x are the must have. That's the hot ticket. If you can find one kudos and if you find people are flipping it on ebay and taking advantage of the supply and demand thing and charging you know well over a grand for these solo if you can find one then you're lucky i don't know if it's the pandemic because we're cooped up at home working quarantining here and video games are going to help not just to keep you entertained but also to keep you in touch with your friends and as we all chat in fact you may not know that the new. Ps five controller the dual sense controller. As it's called has a built in microphone now so you don't even have to buy a separate headset. you can actually chat through the controller itself as it has a microphone and a speaker see. These are the hot ones to get. So if you're finding everywheres is sold out as the old adage says the early bird gets the worm if you call your local retailer local walmart or what have you and you keep hounding them and you keep pushing and talking to people. Someone's gonna say eventually. Yeah we're getting. We're getting three more in today at six or whatever so you may have to do it in person know while practicing social distancing or maybe you'll get some luck online if you can find one mark every year. We put out a list of some very helpful apps that could get you through the shopping season. Can you run down. A few of those words please. Yeah couple all of these ones by the way our apps websites and browser extensions though you install it once and they'll keep an eye on where you're shopping and apply coupons and in other deals at the checkout time so one of my favorites is slick deals. This is a community based site that is like the world's largest community of deal hunters like twelve million members. And what happens is someone will post a deal. They found like hey. I found seventy five inch samsung tv for eleven hundred dollars at this retailer and then others vote on that. They do their own homework. And it's kinda like safety in numbers and they vet does deal and it gets voted upon and may be lands on the on the homepage. So this is a great site for whatever you're buying and again that browser extension which works with chrome edge and fire. Fox will also keep a lookout for you so slick deals as greats like a huge bulletin board where people are sharing the deals that they found on a right now and i'm seeing like an apple watch at walmart for eighty dollars off one hundred sixty nine bucks for the series three and it tells you when the deal starts in what website to go to and people can give it a thumbs up and all that another great site is flip l. i. Double p this is more about retail shopping. And this is an app that you have on your phone that gets all of those circulars that you get all those ads that usually paper in your in our house every thursday wrapped up in a big. You know elastic band kind of thing. And it's like instead of doing that and getting newsprint on your hands all digitize in one place it will call out the best deals per store you can of course search for something that you want to buy. You can share those deals. You can apply coupons at hold your loyalty and rewards cards so flip is a great retail to have on your phone and then one more is a raccoon. These be called e bates. This is where you get money back on your purchases. So when you're shopping at a retailer you start at the raccoon website or started the app and then they share back that sort of commission they would get referrals commission. They share some of that back to you. So every three months you can get a pay pal deposit or a check based percentage of what you're shopping and there's over like twenty five hundred retailers that are on board so it's going to vary between stores but they're saying this time of year it could be up to forty percent while you're shopping. That's on the high end.
Supreme Sells to VF Corp. Will it Sell Out?
"It's an entrepreneur's classic dilemma. Can we keep the culture that makes us unique and made a successful and still sell our company. Nowhere is this dilemma more stark. Then with underground street where companies supreme which recently announced that it selling to fashion conglomerate. Vhf corp you know. Vf the ten billion dollar company that owns nineteen brands including north face vans and timberland well in case she were doomed scrolling in miss the big news last week. Vf announced its deal to acquire supreme. For a couple billion dollars it's bs big acquisitions since it bought timberland and twenty eleven also for just over two billion dollars bloomberg reported. Now you've probably heard of supreme but just in case it's a streetwear company. It sells branded. T shirts hoodies hats and their fashion. Ain't cheap. The label launched with a single skateboard shop. In new york city in nineteen ninety-four the brainchild fashion designer. James jeb jeb. Lia will remain at the helm of the brand supreme at big by doing everything. Mass market brands don't do it. Amplified scarcity in a big way. Supreme spent almost nothing on marketing building. Up word of mouth instead. According to cnbc it opened brick and mortar stores. So slowly that. Today there are only twelve around the world and you couldn't just walk in to make a purchase. No the only way to get supreme. Fashion was to follow them on social media like a hawk waiting for them to announce random drops of merchandise. Today those drops our weekly getting a spot in line for the privilege of buying anything was intentionally almost impossible at the height of their popularity. Wannabe customers would camp out in tents or sleep on the street to get a spot in line. The next morning teens also commonly spent a couple of hundred dollars to purchase online bots that notified in the second clothing dropped but that notification guaranteed nothing products could be sold out in less than a minute that strategy in turn created hot resale market t shirts and hoodies that originally so for sixty to eighty dollars could fetch up to a thousand bucks on ebay and other resale sites. The supreme red and white brand became so magnetic that the company seemingly could sell just about anything by slapping the logo on it from kayaks to a pyrex measuring cup to a brick literally. You can still buy a supreme branded brick resale sites stock x. It'll set you back. One hundred and thirty dollars though according to cnbc and just for fun and unbranded brick currently cost sixty six cents. At lowe's the company also pursued its famous collapse strategy. Working in tandem with the f. Corpse vans timberland. North face to create supreme branded footwear and apparel partners included designers like gucci and louis vuitton even colgate toothpaste has a partnership with supreme for vf. The deal signals a strategic. Step forward in what it is called a transformation plan in recent years. Bef has begun. Divesting less edgy products. Like work. where it's off wrangler into its own company and is building on its prowess in athletic streetwear. Its stock price surged on the supreme announcement. Its biggest gain in more than thirty years according to bloomberg. But here's the really big question. Can supreme keep expanding by making its products. Hard to get under the umbrella of a fortune five hundred company with its eye on global growth. Bfce's the street where market is a fifty billion dollar opportunity. Supreme reportedly earned half a billion in revenues last year the f. plans to add new supreme stores around the world. The new york times asked kent supreme. Stay cool while going corporate seemingly. The answer is yes. After all one of the country's biggest private equity firms the carlyle group bought about half of supreme for five hundred million dollars in two thousand seventeen that deal prompted the same kinds of questions about authenticity but supreme continued to grow. Not everyone sees a smooth path forward. However matt powell is a senior industry advisory at retail consultancy npd group. He told the website high snow by the streetwear market is based on scarcity scarcity and growth are oppositional. Oh and one other challenge ahead for vs. It'll continue to allow supreme to do its famous collapse with partners outside the f- like for instance the f. rivals levi's and nike from the outside. That looks like letting your new spouse still collab- with other partners does it. Not and of course we all know how well that can work out in the end. Success will rest on whether the acquisition will juice revenues and profits for both partners. The f. is confident that supreme can become a billion dollar brand. If that is supreme can hang onto the cool rebellious image it's cultivated since his unassuming launch or than twenty five years ago
Chromecast with Google TV can finally take on Roku and Fire TV Stick 4k
"Veiled the guys last week and got a little lost in the shuffle with the nest audio and Pixel. Five debuts. So what's new what the chrome cast? So the big thing with the crown cast is that it now has a remote and an interface. Those are two long awaited features. You no longer have to rely solely on your phone or tablet or computer to take Netflix's Surg, Youtube and put it onto your TV and I mean, talk a little bit about some of the features on that remote, as well as the interface what what is new about it and is it was it like to us? So I guess we'll break this onto two things we'll start with what's new a google system is very present on the new chrome cast. There's a dedicated assistant button it actually is in a different hue on the remote stands out. It's Pretty active as far as being the interface as well, and you can actually control most of the chrome cats functions with Google system, which is great it really it does a nice job as far as what else is new beyond the interface remote that really covers the bulk of it. There's also Dobie vision and they'll be utmost if you have a compatible TV and sound system. What about that Google TV experience I know it's a revamped version of what they previously called Android TV what's different about it like how and how does it work? So it's kind of new for you page. So the big the big push with. Google TV is a new interface it a new layout that looks more like a Amazon's fire TV. than the old way, which had you basically scrolling through each apps now there's Content in the four as opposed to each APP having it's own separate. Column. Ero-. and. It makes it a lot easier to use it. It's designed to help you find things to watch. As. Opposed to mindlessly scrolling through. Netflix. And then scrolling through prime video or HBO or any of the other many streaming APPs that are available a lot. This seems like upgrade or anything you don't like about this thing. So I had a couple moments where it lacked it wasn't as fast as say Amazon's fire TV, stick four K., which is a similarly. Priced. Streaming dangle. That has Alexis Google Assistant. Random issues where assistant where if I asked to watch them a big marble and so I'd asked to watch avengers infinity war and it would start playing on. Youtube. TV through TBS which has the broadcast rights or the cable rights rather as opposed to recognizing that I subscribed to Disney plus and playing it in four K. on Disney plus subscription. So it just doesn't assistant doesn't always know right now what the best way to watch a particular show movies. It also had a weird issue where unofficial. Weird issue. But you can't actually power this or I wasn't able to power this off of the USB port on my television. I had to use the included seven and a half. Watt Power after which I don't know about you, I like plugging these things directly into the TV running off the USB power it's less cables to see it's easier to to install not having to find an empty outlet. And the fact that this at least with my lg Ola that I was testing into couple years old the old lead, but it's still a fairly recent TV. The fact that wouldn't power and function off of what was provided from the USB port was a bit surprising. Yes. Someone who has his roku plugged into the USB poor of his TV, I can definitely appreciate the need for something like that because it cuts down on the number wires behind your TV. And living in a household with multiple kids you WanNa have as few wires as possible. So that's kind of annoying. Setback. But you know that that that's not the biggest deal you talked about Google assistant and how it's front and center in this Did you find when you were using this? You're using Google system a lot more or were you reverting back this year? The traditional way you'd use remote control, right just the using the standard volume channel of Buns or like how how did having assistant on their control changed the way you interact with this change in the couple is so. Big in the ANDROID. Google TV. Sorry interfaces for you page which I guess it's a personalized page based off of shows and movies that you like and. Content that you traditionally watch and what is recommending was actually pretty good. That's the default homepage. Ties in necessarily to the assistant the ties to some that personalization aspects I find that to be pretty useful as far as what Google is doing there, and for the assistant director part the voice portion of it. I found myself constantly using assistant to open APPs or two. I was using TV and fan. So just to switch between football and the Yankee game saying. Okay Google the key game in having automatically switched to the right channel. Was Super Helpful and it was doing this regardless of whatever APP was in. So I was watching something on Netflix are on regular youtube and I wanted to see what was going on the Yankee game I'd say Okay Google hold the button down okay Google go to the Yankees game and it would do that. Sometimes it took a few seconds to do that at one point I timed. It knows over ten, which for live TV is pretty bad. Ten second wait between when you want to go somewhere say you WanNa go somewhere and when it actually appears. that needs to improve tremendously, and it wasn't that I had a bad internet connection I have couple hundred megabits per second more on testing. So that needs to improve at otherwise the assistant has been great to use an pretty surprised to say that because voice assistance on these streaming devices. Has Been At least in my experience a bit more hit or miss. So taken together with all these new features, their control and just to clarify. Cost, fifty dollars and that's that's more than the previous rate it is. Go to models previously, there was a chrome cast macroom castle tre. So this does pretty much everything. The chrome cats ultra does the higher end I believe it was seventy dollars model that now's only available in a stadium bundle for now studios actually coming to. Chrome cast with Google TV, this new device, but it's not coming until sometime officially in the believe first half of twenty twenty one. So sometime, next year. So this is actually cheaper. The matter is more expensive than the HD, only chrome cast but that for I believe it was thirty dollars, lacks the interface lacks a remote lacks four case for twenty dollars more you get all that plus the ability to run all these APPs without having to rely on your phone computer tablet. Got It. So taking all together, the price, the new features, the remote control, how does this stack up against similar option from Roku, Amazon through its fire TV line so that's a great question. It really depends on what world you live in. That's how look at this. If you are somebody who has a lot of Amazon devices, I'm not gonNA say the word because I don't want to trigger things. If you have a lot of those devices and you're very much in the Amazon World The fire TV stick four K. is excellent. It's faster than this. The election degration sorry said that word is not as strong as Google, assistant. But it is a very capable, very impressive device. If you have a lot of apple devices roku streaming stick plus which is forty dollars is an equally compelling option especially when it has play which roku announce, the other week is coming at some point soon. So it really depends on where you you find yourself if you just want all the APPs and this has hbo Mac, which is something that Amazon, Roku currently lack. This is not a bad option. Yeah. That was the fault question there because there's been a lot fusion about which streaming services are available on in which dreamers. The generally, the chrome cast is pretty much covered for all your services, the croome cast with Google TV, because they're still regular chrome cast being sold. This one has I would say out of the major ones ninety, nine percents of is missing. Apple. TV plus. Is available on Roku Amazon, and of course, the Apple TV if you want something that currently has everything you have to get an apple TV. Apple TV. For K., but those I think the Apple TV fourcade currently hundred eighty dollars or so. So you have to pay a sizable upgrade plus some pretty old hardware at this point has been rumored to be prepping new boxes of some kind. Were to do that for a while maybe comes out your maybe it doesn't through kind of all over the map there. But that's the only one that has every major streaming service Google has everyone but apple TV plus roku Amazon have everyone bought Hbo Max so it really depends. You S reviewer I'm just curious how you put these things which pesos what is the review process look like especially when you're doing this at home It's a lot of watching. TV. And a of watching movies and seeing how it performs. In a variety of different settings. So different TV's different picture options with different content sources so Disney plot for example, on the Google TV doesn't stream currently until be vision but Netflix does have some content available in dolby vision and will be. Available on the chrome cast with Google TV. So it's it's comparing different things. It's comparing the performance of those content sources to how a roku streaming stick plosser Amazon Fire TV stick for K.. Would handle playing back that particular movie or TV show or piece of live. Content TV's sports. And just comparing and contrasting to watching that sounds like a really tough job. Ultimately is worth. Fifty dollars I think. So if you again keeping in mind that. The exact situation will vary if you like Apple TV, this is not the option for you. If you have a very big Amazon household you wanted to tie in. Really. Well to your rings. And to some of your other Amazon devices. This isn't the option for you. if you want to do airplay, this isn't the option trio. But if you want something that's simple that has a solid interface that has really good remote and isn't that expensive at fifty dollars is a pretty good choice.

Are Cell Phone Payment Plans Considered Debt?
"Brett is in Columbia South Carolina Hi Brent. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Hey Dave Hey Rachel. Hey, what's up to my question for you today is me and my wife we've been working the baby steps. Baby step two, but we've come to a point now where we've got kind of a fork in the road it's basically, we're looking at our cell phone bill and we're wondering if we should go ahead and pay off our cell phones to lower our bill from about two sixty a month to one, ninety five or if we should take the six hundred and eighty dollars that it's GonNa take to pay that off to pay off another debt, which is six, hundred, ninety, two dollars. So, it's we're like, right they are added and I'm just like you know I see the financial advantages of lowering our monthly bill. But at the same time I'm like we can go ahead and knock out that debt and be out of it. Well, you got to pay it off this time time right? We're not gonNA keep the phone debt right? Right, right no. No, and actually as both for cell phone six, hundred, eighty, two dollars. That is the debt that we owe you know is is actually where my wife bought a new cell phone last year. Okay and she financed it through an outside company, the the six, hundred and eighty. That's that were kind of like paying. Views both of them are debts. Both of them are cell phones. And both of them are around six hundred and eighty dollars. Why would you just not pay both of them off? Well, that's what I'm asking is it's The cell phones that were paying through at and T.. It's part of our service contract and we're paying it through our service contracts and it's you finance moths at and T. Your wife financed her cell phone with one outside of at and T.. Correct. They're both debts. Okay. So you're saying it doesn't matter which one you pay off because in the end you're going to be paying off. One album anyway at the rate you're. Down you're probably GONNA, pay them both off this month. Aren't you? Doing anything that's not male band. been doing good. All right. Michigan now is that does that answer your question? Is that what you're wondering? Yeah I go I just didn't know. I figured. I, guess. Probably. Yeah. This is the this is the evil part of a t and T in verizon and so forth. Okay. When they finance your cellphone into your phone bill, you don't think of it as debt. Right yeah, and that's that's that's the great mystery of how they pulled pulled that wool over our eyes. It's soil debt. You still borrowed money as opposed to when I get a cell phone they're either giving me one because of the contract were on or I'm paying for it. Right. Then when I pick it up, one of the two it's going on you know we're we're paying for to mmediately. So we don't finance cellphones over on payments whether it is with the cell phone company or with an outside party, and it shouldn't you have. Then we're just going to get rid of that. They've changed over the past couple of years where it's like Kinda this like finagled thing within your bill, it is and it can be very, very confusing. So intentionally confusing hundred percent. Totally. To finance it, and they totally don't want you looking at the interest rate they totally don't want they just WanNa make it easy for you. Easy for it. That's what they want. Yeah beware of those people man I'm telling you just like anybody's GonNa make it easy. Yeah. That's problem.

"Have a few things that are interesting from where I stand right now the the markets on the to dive back into the crowd sign on both on. Bitcoin. On the day and we got little bullish channels I should say in the crowd on Bitcoin are theory on exile. On. bitcoin cash on lot coin nobody it's they cod Donna not so much Braun Ales and link.

The first time in what one, two, three, four wakes down two point, two, five percent, and like I sort of hinted or touched on last week there is potential full further downside I try to get back to ten thousand wouldn't be out of the wouldn't stretch it.

Breakout through the hive yesterday, which is only eleven seven to five that much are a little bit more strength. A bitcoin suddenly have that four hour trend. Looking much more bullish and I'm hopeful to say that today and give us some conditions for further upside throughout the wake. Across the market, many of these markets have. Indeed had a pullback and opportunities may present themselves. So that those, it know how to trade the cradle pullbacks on that to date going to have a little bit customer scan. That's what I liked. The most others noise little to date candle for the moment. Eleven thousand, six, hundred, thirty, four on. Bitcoin right now theory look I said on that some. Tonight's back into weeklies very extended three, hundred, ninety dollars and eleven cents down point two percent loss weight. We saw pullback GNAWING, ten percent.

When I look at this way, we've had the most bearish weekly across all these lakes, the moving average. The ten has now cooled back up the price. We down twelve point, six, percent loss were sitting at twelve cents flat. And A MACHO SIPA MAY ON COW Donna. Barnett's lost week pullback seven percent.

Thanks for taking the time to do this. You know I find that. Promote books real hard like the first couple of weeks that they're out, and then some people get around to reading them late like I do. So it never hurts to give it another spin. So I appreciate you taking the time. Oh. Man. No worries. Thank you I. I, never looked at it as a You know it's not a single for radio. You know what I mean I. I don't know when I don't have my second book started yet. But not exactly like I'm hurrying through this. What now this? I. Think I got one book in May and this is it. So I'll be talking about for a while. Well, you had told me just before we started rolling the recording here that this book when you actually wrote, it was originally more than double the amount of patients that came out. Close to three times, actually, it was Well, I guess the three fifty and I turned in just under nine fifty. So yeah, two and a half times at least. And it. Was it was it was it was great.

So hearing that is having done a couple books myself. Not An autobiography I'm still working on that, but having done a few I know about that editing process and it could be agonizing as an author because you feel like everything you put in, there is really good and should be included and is a big part of the story. So did you leave it to them to do the tough cuts or did you have to dig into it and really do some self editing? Well Eddie to that point. I. Believe I'm the first person who said this is nine hundred and fifty pages of pure gold. Yeah Now, we'll see that's my partner. Steven Hyden the simplest way to describe what he did. With I. I wrote the songs and he produced the album and what I mean by that, we got together ahead of time and we just established the timelines together like I. We talked it through. I have a very linear chronological memory and we started with me moving to Atlanta and he just led me like breadcrumbs through the whole story and we. It was just conversations where we recorded by cowling of the the art like this happened this, the the met them and. So I had. So we put together like forty chapters of my my audio breadcrumbs for me to venues to go right the story, keep me on a on a linear path in writing. And so that was hugely important and then, but I went I wasn't wrote the thing, and then when it was all said and done as I was finishing chapters, I'd son the Stephen. and. He was aware of the fact as I was writing it this way longer than anybody's expecting and probably longer than any was gonNA. WanNa publish. So in his mind, he was I think already. Paying attention to the overall narrative arc and looking at things that don't necessarily move the story along, they might be funny or they might be crazy, but they don't. Keep the momentum going. So he had a really good overview from the minute I finished already in his head of what he thought could probably come out if need be and that was hugely important for me because when they told me go away and edit it you know the editor said I'm not gonNA edit this. You'll hate me why you guys gotTA. GotTa take the first path and so Steven Hyden was huge and that because he was able to speak to me talking me off of my perch of, but this is a blockbuster brilliant book. You know and he said, no, hang on the pitch stories are great. But four of them are all of similar. You know what? I mean. They're telling the same. In the grand scheme of things, you're kinda repeating themes and the reader doesn't need the readers. You know, give the reader credit. They know who the characters are real soon and they get your humor they get. Stuff deprecating, you don't have to keep going to those wells, blah blah blah, but he was instrumental in making me see. Where we go and I mean, it could have been edited a million different ways. But we came to this one really pretty quickly. You know I mean within a month or two. We had basically what you're reading, and then it was a matter of just the copy editing, which is where you pick every sentence apart. Make sure that the ten. Grammar. Jerk. You know I'm a real nerd for that stuff. So I I actually enjoyed. Tearing, apart, my own stream of consciousness writing and making sure the verb tenses. All matched up and all that kind of stuff.
Control of the body with the mind
"Today? We take on a luck at the medicine mystery of mind over matter, a mind over matter can be the control of the body with the mind. This might include controlling blood pressure or the rate of a heartbeat. Some monks are able to dry out wet towels by controlling their body heat. That is what usually is described as a placebo effect believing that they can do it so strongly that they can try out those wet towels. Placebo is an inert substance or belief which produces real biological effects in humans. It's so widely accepted as fact. A placebo variable included most medical tests as way of proving if say. Say A. Drug works on its own merits, or because people think it works. There are tons of experiments showing the proof of the Placebo, one of the most amusing to watch the test done by a group of Princeton students who decided to throw a Non Alcoholic Keg party for their unsuspecting classmates. The experiment who secretly filled a keg with Oh duels contained, which contains about point, four alcohol while regular beer has five percent alcohol, and then watched as their peers acted silly slur words slept on the ground, generally acted drunk, although it stereo impossible to get in toxic donald tools. These college students had such a strong belief. They were drinking standard beer that it affected their behavior. Then, there is a level of creative mental imagery that affects the physical body for an example. We look at a prisoner of war during the Vietnam Conflict Air. Force general colonel. Hall was locked a dark North Vietnamese prison for seven years most would have lost their mind. In such circumstances hall went into his happy place by mentally playing golf. Every day of his imprisonment is visualizations were extremely in-depth, included everything from hitting the ball off the tee, raking the sand traps, feeling the wind, and of course tapping the ball into the hole. Regardless of being weak and hundred pounds lighter than before his capture, one of the first things hall wanted to do after his release was play a legitimate round of golf, he was invited to the greater. New Orleans open for he astoundingly shot a seventy six, so despite his physical deterioration, not stepping on coercion over seven years his body had developed muscle memory day. Day simply on his imaginings mind over matter it's usually dismissed like deja Vu and the paranormal, but many years ago, I witnessed a lesser known form of mind over matter. I've been involved in the martial arts for over fifty years. One point in my training schools, black belts were invited to witness an example of Chee Courses Costas about eighty dollars each there were. Were about twelve of us, essentially, Chee is a life force. It exists in the human body in the martial arts. There are many stories of men who could control their cheat to the extent that they could ward off strikes or even extend she to knock over an opponent. Needless to say I was very skeptical. I was in my mid twenties at the time. Time, we were gathered in the schools large back room and told a former circle. I watched as an Asian man who looked to be in his fifties. Walk into the room. He was smoking drinking coffee from a Styrofoam Cup, he dumped coffee into a corner planter. He also ground out his cigarette. He walked to the centre of the circle placed his cup on. On, the floor upside down through our instructor, he expressed that he wanted one of the students to pick up the cup. A young black bolt directly across from me, was chosen and step forward data over and over the cup, but total a Mason said he couldn't pick up the cup all the while watching I determined that. If I was chosen, I'd fall on. On the Cup indeed was picked I stepped to the center of the circle, and at a signal from sense I extended by hand, proceeded to fall, figuring to catch myself and even push up position. The end result was that I. could not touch the cup. Indeed, our guests could not only control his chee. He was a master of mind over matter referring of. Of course to his ability to control bodily function

Travel which is just as well because when has started to shut down to Judah Coverage. She found herself happily stranded in a bungalow in rural Thailand. Yes so I was actually traveling with my boyfriend. Slash unofficial photographer Jonathan. We put our apartment up for after wrench for the majority of spring. He took a hiatus from works to finish his master's program. I'm a travel writer editor for my work. So we were basically had no plans and we're just kind of bopping around and and seeing where felt right so we were actually in India. We are in Delhi win. I The Danish borders were shutting in mere hours. Of course Jonathan could get back but his girlfriend's in American could not that came right before at the American borders shots and I could get back. Jonathan could not so with with literally five hours at in India to choose. We found a cheap flight from Delhi to Bangkok. And we said you know what will be together. This is. There's Kobe it can't destroy a beautiful weather and Delicious Pad Thai at we will will take easy here and just see what comes next. So that's what originally brought me back to Thailand so you all with Jonathan. It's not some long distance relationship livelihood in other episodes and fortunately he is an officer on a Danish oil-tanker so as soon as the flights to Europe started dwindling down in Thailand. He knew he knew that he had to get home or he risked losing his job so about a month ago he he left me Could've defend myself but obviously we we chat every day. This is the first time in my life where I've really had to make every decision For myself and and really every decision wasn't important. One so he is. He will be there at the end of this. I'm I'm really hoping that at some point in the near or distant future either Denmark opens again the US Open's again. Thailand opens again. But until now we we are very much the long distance relationship with him in the middle of the ocean. What are you doing? You was there. Jonathan's going back to today mark. He's going back to work. Your tribal rod is not a lot of commissioning going on. So what have you been doing? Well I'm the kind of person that always needs to keep myself busy. And just in order to stay sane also because I really do love what I do. So as a travel writer and editor. I've pivoted a lot of my messages to stay home but in the future blank blank would be the optimal you know post pandemic vacation so I helped launch L. A. Style magazines travel sector which has been a lot of learning. Seo on the back end and kind of looking for new talent new writers at the same time I also am the executive producer. A PBS show so public television show that's streaming across all the United States. It's funny I don't even have a TV here in my bungalow. But I'm getting all of these pictures of friends who are saying. Hey live is not your shown that I see when I turn on the television. So yes it is hand. It's been a lot of fun. You kind of show people that the idea of friendship connection when travelling which is what the message of fly brother. The show is about Still remains true even during a global worldwide pandemic so it in fact it's been it's been more meaningful than ever because it just shows us the importance of the people that we meet when we travel not just the place as a little bit of a pivot from my normal everyday because those things are are a little bit in line with you know my career and might suggest. I've met a really wonderful group of experts from all over the world theory We joke that were a bit of United Nations of of Thailand at and we of course in in a socially distant manner have this rocketed to really help the street dogs and the elephants year in in crabby because at the street dogs really rely on the scraps of the hotels and the restaurants tourist just leaving McDonald's hamburger in a garbage near the beach but with legitimately notorious. These dogs are are starving and in Near Jack. So what we do. Is We go on our on our motorbikes early in the mornings I'm we collect food. We have you know a donation site available or use our own funds And then we have about eighty five street dogs in different packs that we ride our bikes to which is a new phenomenon for me. Because I've I've never been exactly the most graceful human being so Doing that on a motorbike is is definitely stepping out of comfort zone. I never had thought really how much a pandemic would affect you know with this chain of events how it would affect the animals and in turn affects the humans because now a lot of times people like culturally are are more frightened of the street dogs but if the dogs aren't having to you know come up in bag and really show their show their strength in order to just survive if they can be fed and we feed them food. We feed them vitamins. We've gotten We've taken some to the vets just to make sure they're all right you know they're manged there for Then everyone kind of lives in harmony so that people generally have been very very open and welcoming to to the group of ex stats riding around in helping the the dogs.
Our Favorite Tools and Learning New Stuff
"Has been up to this weekend I finally got to use the shaper origin. Oh how'd you like it? I was that I'm not sure why would it so long I? It's a basically. I'll I knew that there's going to be a big update and this is probably going to be a pain in the butt. An I'm not sponsored by them. I paid for the tool. So this is this is all me actual experience but it turns it on and basically up to it connected to the Wifi than updated by itself. And then it's really a friendly. It's actually is. There was not much of a learning curve. We just R- able to decide I write in. You know you can draw circles right on the machine and then cut circles out and then we imported some artwork from illustrator. Now worked out totally fine and so I did this like pattern in my when desk in the shop and it worked out really really good. It's a cool on the inlay. Didn't come out absolutely perfect a because sometimes when you're a if you're you're routing out pocket and then you hit a part where there is no would attention goes away and so sometimes it would kind of slip and once it gets outside the line it to pull up a bit but if you move too fast it can't pull up that bit fast enough And so there was like one little spot so I know in the future like just slow down and let the machine do the Work Trinita force anything and So it's a it's a handheld CNC and you control the speed so you kind of rely on feel and sound for the right speeds and feeds and everything and it worked out really good at see me using a lot in the future. The The one thing that I kinda bought it and thought hey. I use this to at artwork to finish pieces like maybe make a small box or whatever and I can route an inlay and I realized the problem with that is. There's a camera on there. The camera has to see north of the machine. And so if you so it's really hard to route on a small box Asian unless you make a station where that boxes level with the table surface and then you can put on your yellow dominant so I didn't realize that I. But there's gotTA BE. I'm sure people have come up some quick creative ways to make a flat level. Larger surface one The funny thing about the software is in. I'll talk about my fusion experience where it's bottomless pit. I was always worried about went before I jumped into few before I jumped into Sorry Shaper I was afraid. There was going to be dark edge of learning on the product. Like you always afraid this too much to learn. And like you're just going to stay comfortable in this little clearing. Feel like you're in the woods you so much more outside of this clearing that you think you need to know but you're afraid but once you jump in the shape or you realize awhile. I'm Mike in a little room with all the information. I don't need to go outside this room. You know what I'm saying like learning learning is is not expensive. It's really fast. And you're like Oh there's no there's not like seventeen more menus only two menus on this. This is all I can say to to know so once I started digging into the software I thought there was lots of menus in lots of choices. Lots of offsets. And it's not at all. No it's all it's all right there and I pretty much had the same feeling. I think that's what was holding me back. There was like I don't WanNa spend a full day trying to learn this machine. No spent five minutes going through the four menu options own. Have Yeah and I just WanNa say thank you to Aaron because Aaron narrative his sort of taking the role of he's like the he's like the Lewis and Clark of everything we bring in the shop. He's like a figure this out and let you know what happens if I don't come back soon. Sent help so anything that comes the door. Aaron jumps right on. Let's read all the manuals and stuff and then he gives me the the dummy lesson. Don't touch this flip that and then if you do this it might work. It might not just be careful. And then he leaves me along with it. It's worked out real worked out really good. And so I. I was playing with this the CNC MACHINE. We got a spider CNC in the shop in an injection molder from eight P. X. S Him saying that right. It's a bunch of initials is the name of the company and I always mess it up. But it's a company that makes it a home injection molder and they sell. Cnc machine with two so. They gave me the packages. They gave me a package of the machine. The two machines to to test drive for them and I really had a standing deliver. It was kind of the same anxiety ahead when I got my Torma. Actually make something on this and the anxiety level was very high. Making sure that I didn't damage the machine. I think that was really. That's really my biggest things. Id Levels. I don't want to damage the machine. It's one of those things where you're afraid. The machine is smarter than you. You know and I don't want to break bits in that one they give you them the they provided me the mold and I don't WanNa mess the mold up because the malls are expensive. The mold blank. It's just a it's specifically machine chunk of aluminum and Anyway we had success. I one of my big fears with machining in developing a product infusion go into is machining on a small scale machining. Tiny tiny stuff so every time I come up with an idea. I'm like Oh that's that's in the realm of two small to understand and when I was working on the tarmac wanting to make a stamp or a hot stamp or something and then I'd be fearful. Let him was in the realm of two small for me to understand how to do the machining. We'll have to lay out the CNC. So what is it about that specifically the smallness of it that makes you think that is like a some precision or like? What's the fear there? the yeah the not knowing the speeds the feeds and then being able to just probably break bits after bit after bit. And that's really been my fear. It's funny I years ago. Kayla put out a video of him plane on the tarmac where he broke like ten bits and he just kept crashing. The member was on the make channel and Gilchrist put out in the bits just kept breaking and everybody thought that was me. I'm like no the I'm Alex. Jimmy was around the same timing that I got my machine and breaking those bitches like you can't just go around to the corner store and go get new bits. Lotta Times like those are Spanish. That's that's a good point too. You know. And some of them are very expensive. That could be sixty seventy eighty dollars for a bit. That in has ago. A one sixteen ball knows on it and the one rung Like even when I made the most recently I guess it's this was last summer. I made the license plate stamp or had to put the Word Carolina in license plate stamped. I I use the sixteenth inch ball nose mill which was brand new right out of the thing about two of them halfway through the come noticing. That wasn't even a good finish. The tip of the ball most broke off and I don't even know why my speed feeds role super slow so going in this weekend. I I made the made of course keeping with tradition. I think now it's a superstition. Every time I use a new machine. I gotTA use my logo. So I made a a logo of my my keychain with my logo through it so it goes from one side to the other and to get between the letters even after modified it on you'll see it in the video ultimately after modified it in illustrator. I still had us a one thirty second bit otherwise it would have been if I blew up the logo so big that it could use an eighth of an inch bit. It would have been ten inches which is too big. That's how big the space needs to be between the letters between the stenciling font so long story short is I used a thirty one thirty two bit that I had I over the summer. I bought a bunch of stuff from machinists at a garage sale last summer. Finally got a chance to use these bits. And they're probably seventy dollars each. I have five of them. I bought them at this big lot of stuff. All brand new and the we I set up we set up the cut paths and we cut it in plastic and it worked great and so then we set up the aluminum and right away. We broke the eighth inch clearing it. Bought IT SMELLED UP THE MACHINE ONCE. Snow the machine twice each time. We're lowering the feed the speeds and everything and then the third time it broke the bit so the fourth time we have the bit inside the college with just about a point one five sticking out of the college because the bit snapped in half and so now this is the eighth inch clearing bit so we were able to run the clearing. Bit Super Slow. It's the software. Said it would have been ten minute cut. We made it like a twenty minute cut and then when I'm now I'm super nervous about to put the thirty two in there. I put the one thirty two bit in there and move just about to run it and I ran the sliders. All down the overrides on the machine you could slide slow. The feeds and speeds we sped it up and then I slowed defeat so what was said on the computer. Sixteen hour cut turned into a thirty hour. Cut So we let the machine run thirty hours and we just kept flooding it with oil. I'd leave and come back in the little pocket of oil would now be like mud. Because it's full of granules from the shavings from the cut scored some new oil and their leave comeback four or five hours later Aaron. We kinda like baby in the machine for thirty hours my friends combined. It's like do not kick that plug. If you kicked the plug stay away then the spider the you're talking about running on the
How to Run a Business on Amazon.com - Tips and Tricks From the #1 Leader in Marketing Products, Robyn Johnson
"Just dive in Robin and start talking about seller central first off what is seller central for those people who aren't super familiar with Amazon. And why is it? The most common way to sell on Amazon on Amazon. Everything kind of looks like one big united platform but on the back end. It's actually split into several different places so like where you sell your journals is Katie p. That's a little different there seller central where you sell physical goods on Amazon. And then there's vendor central where you sell goods to Amazon and while vendor central has a lot of benefits can be really great especially. If you're a large brand you have to have an invite in. Amazon has not been inviting a lot of people so for the majority of people. If you're not already on vendor central seller central's going to be where you go anybody can sell on seller central and so it's it's the place where the majority of people who sell physical goods are going to sell their products so fire nation. I think there's a lot of things you need to realize recognize when it comes to Amazon. I mean it's a behemoth it is massive and there's a lot of people that have been doing seller central in different areas within that for so many years it is critical that you get content and you learn from the tips shadows and tactics from the best. And that's why I brought Robin on here today. So what Robin do people mostly get wrong when it comes to understanding Amazon's fees? I mean there's different size. Tears different category selections. I know personally from I and experience because I actually do seller central. I actually ship my journals to Amazon. They sit there at the Amazon warehouse and then they are purchasing distributed from there. So I've been having to deal with size tears. I've been having to deal with quote unquote expired inventory or long-term inventory and I think it's just a whole bundle of wax and a lot of people don't even know or understand before getting into Amazon and a lot of cases because they don't understand it. They do a lot of things wrong at the beginning. That really hurts them. Long term as far as keeping that net profit at a at a good solid play so break that down force so when it comes to Amazon. The Devil's in the details. Really so you really WanNa get into the fee breakdowns for your particular platforms. So whether that's Katie. P vendor central seller central on central fees are kind of broken down into a couple of different pieces. The first is going to be the referral fee. The referral is based on a percentage based on the category. And you're GONNA WANNA look at that category that you before you create that listing on Amazon. So if you put your category your product and category eight versus category be. It might be the difference between paying an eight percent. Were fee paying a fifteen or twenty percent refer so knowing that is really important. Different categories have different and specific price points. So there's like for example in the grocery category there. They run promotions occasionally. So if your product is at fourteen ninety nine you're charged eight percent and if your products charge fifteen dollars that might be charged. Fifteen percent and those those promotions will change over time but knowing that the referrals fees makes a big difference and then there's the FBI fees which is fees. The Amazon charges for you to send your item to Amazon Amazon. We'll take that item when it sells. We'll send it to the customer. The handle any customer service that covers shipping to the customer the pick and pack fee any customer service. And that's going to be based off of the size and weight so when you're having your products developed you really WanNa have those sized. Here's that are available on Amazon. Right there on your desk and you WanNa make sure you give yourself at least a quarter of inch maybe a half inch depending on how precise your factories are in the way that your packaged goods are so there could be a difference. Where if your product is just a little bit over that eight inch mark they your go from three to eight dollars something along those lines so you WanNa make sure that your products are not only. Take that into account when you're creating the products but you make sure that your products are measured correctly. You can if you're not measured correctly you can request was. Call the Cuba scan to get those chains and low credit. You back the difference in those fees if you can show that's the right size and then there's also storage so there's thirty day storage fees which are X. amount during q one two three and why amount during Q. Four so usually during Q. Four. It's going to be about five four to five times more than it is the rest of the year. And if you leave things in there a really long time then Amazon's GonNa charge you a lot of money because they don't Wanna be your storage unit. I mean that's a key thing I wanna really just hammer home for you. Fire nation that. I've had to learn the hard way. Unfortunately because you know I like oh I have these journals like you know. The best thing about books is that like they don't expire like they don't grow like they don't like mold like cheese like they're not gonNA actually go bad so to speak you know especially if they're store correctly which Amazon does do but then all of a sudden I was just like Oh if I send them like ten thousands and it takes me like five years to sell ten thousand than like years two three four and five like my long term storage fees. Keep going up and up so I actually use a separate warehouse to actually store the vast majority of my journals. It cost me four hundred and eighty dollars per month for like the sixteen Palettes of over thirty. Five thousand journals haven't stock four hundred eighty bucks a month at this warehouse because this is what they do and then when I need to. I'll send a thousand journals at a time to Amazon because I know that could sell those the four to six month timeframe to stay under that long-term store so you just have to know your numbers. You have to understand the referral fee. Like I love how you said that Robbins beginning that you could be paying potentially five to fifteen percent more than you have to be if you just didn't pay attention and shop around the different categories that your product qualifies for and that's so huge that so
Travel to Senegal and The Gambia
"Welcome the image traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about West Africa. I like to welcome to the show. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM. Who has come to talk to us about Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa? Brian Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you for having me. I know you were surprised that we had not previously done in episode of Amateur Traveler on this region and as we were talking about before we started recording. We don't get as many pitches but also there aren't as many travelers who tend to go to west Africa East Africa. Southern Africa tend to get a little more tourists in general. Why should someone go to that region before we focus in on Senegal? Gambia I think. West Africa's really vibrance several my friends. Who have been there for years in the Peace Corps? Said it's about the People? It's about the markets it's about the color it's about the way they treat you just the life that's on the streets of West Africa. I think we hear of animals. Safaris maybe eastern Southern Africa West. Africa's is really the beating hearts of the continents with some of the most populous countries in the fascinating region with lots of smaller countries grouped. In that you can visit In the whole region there will. We've chosen to talk about Senegal and the Gambia one. Because you've been there recently and we always try and focus on someplace. That wasn't a ten years ago trip. The you've been to all the countries in Africa. Yes four fifty four nations and Africa hats off to you. Thank you and people may be wondering why we're talking about the two of them. This is one of those very odd places where one country actually completely surrounds. The exactly the Gambia's inside of Senegal. So the Gumby has no other neighbors have Senegal to the North East. The South and the West is the ocean. So it's completely involved excellent. And why should someone go to Senegal Gambia? I think Senegal and the Gambia great introduction to Africa and especially to West Africa. They're safe countries. They're countries that are kind of a soft introduction. They're not quite as hard hitting some the other countries in west Africa. Very safe to visit for me. The the weather was very nice after coming from kind of more tropical and intense heat in the Sahara for example movement way across and the people. The people are very friendly. There's not vowed kind of lively music in the streets that you can listen to all the time and there is a decent number of Europeans between but a large French population. There's quite a few Lebanese. That live there a special indy car in the capital of Senegal. And it's it's very soft welcoming place that would not intimidate so I think most people when they think of Africa that would be a great place to start and by contrast. Then what you're saying is there's some of their neighbors. We're them might be a little more. You think twice about going because of poverty terrorism Civil war or disease. Yeah those those are the only reasons I can think of not to go to some of the areas over the last ten years at least in western Africa and I think the Transportation as well kind of infrastructure with having made my way of public transportation there are a lot of Africa can be extremely slow and the Senegal Gambia. Our little breath of fresh air to be able to get around quite a bit easier than the light of the countries in the region and I'm fascinated to hear about this. I have technically been indycar but really only in the airport. And they didn't let me off the plane so I really knew very little about the area. So what kind of itinerary would you recommend? I think that Senegal be the one that you'd want to spend more time in. The car has quite a bit to see in there quite a few beaches right there. Outside of the city I stayed in a neighborhood called walk. Tom Which is nicely placed next to the African Renaissance Monument which is the largest statue and all of Africa. That kind of looks down on the whole region there and Indycar and you can take a couple of really nice day trip south from the car so if you stayed there for two three or four days I think that would be an ideal amount of time to spend their most people like I went to a place called Goree Island which is very famous for being one of the biggest places that had slaves that were coming out to the Americas and you can learn a lot but the history. They're easy to walk around. There's a ferry that goes every couple hours to get there and place it almost everyone. The cousin Senegal visits during the first couple days sides stay for the car to three days with the city and the surrounding area and then a couple of days up to St Louis which is about four hours for five hours north by bus. Okay and you could spend a day or two. They're known for its famous. Saint Louis Arch known. Not that Saint. Louis Okay the other Saint Louis in Senegal. It takes a good six to eight hours going by bus. You could take a private car if you want. Or if you're on a tour to get down to the Gambia assume that's GONNA take up half or two thirds of a day and then I'd be down in Bonn Jewel and area right below it whether it's nice speeches and a monkey parking things for two to three days so I think you could easily piece together somewhere between eight and ten days which would be kind of a nice length of a visit between Senegal Gambia. Excellent so you started us into car and you mentioned going out to the island whose name I've already forgotten it's gory island heart ee. Eileen with just one of the biggest hubs for the slave trade and they have fairies that go out every couple hours and that's definitely Come a must do if you're in Dakar. I think almost anyone I've talked to has done not visit for half day or two thirds of the day and real easy to walk arounds. Thinks about a kilometre too long. And that's locals there with colorful art kids playing soccer in slave museums. That are there that you can visit as well and so I assume there's a fourth year which is where they keep the slaves locked up. Yes and what else are we going to do the two or three days in the car? How are we gonNA spend that you mentioned the monument and there's a couple of monuments there the country it's about ninety six percent Muslim and so there's several nice mosques to visit as well in the lot of fishermen that go out and I love think West Africa? One of the images of the coastal areas. Are these colorful fishing boats that you can see like dozens of guys sliding off into the water and then sliding back up with their catch from the day and there's a lot of seafood that they bring in so these real colorfully painted. Boats is one of the images that you'll see on the coast there in Indycar and their fishing from the there than rather than from okay and is there a place you would go to see that. There is a mosque called the mosque of the divinity which had a bunch of these colorful boats right next to it and it's right there in the car about five or ten minutes from where I was staying in the neighborhood of calm and I stayed AIRBNB. There's lots of airbnb options there for budget travelers and there's all different ranges of accommodation but there are inexpensive options for those looking for him as well and I stayed with a local man there and enjoyed always like state local people to give you all flavor of what it's like will what I usually find when we're talking about. Travelling in lesser developed areas of Africa is that we're talking about not an inexpensive flight to get in relatively expensive for the distance intra country flights inside of Africa. Compare for instance or a US but then really cheap food and really cheap housing. Is that right? Yeah that's true. And so that's the Pros and cons. I always way between local transport and the flights I think the flights between the Gambian cars forty minutes so in say but I just checked in it's still upwards of one hundred forty to one hundred eighty dollars for a forty minute one slight. It's not too bad for Africa standards. It can be a lot worse a lot worse or west African flights but bus. I WanNa say it was about eighteen dollars that took me there so you just have to pick and choose. What's worth more your your time or your money. Well and that is going to be an individual choice. Yeah another thing. A lot of people like to do is there's a pink lake there several of these in the world. There's one in Mexico unless Jerry I believe and there's one about Sarah outside of Dakar. That is is another kind of one of them. Must do things on the visit. That would take you maybe about a half day and so that is really really pick. Yeah if you look at pictures online. There's one called Rainbow Mountain in Peru or I don't know how much instagram or things put filters on it and this one depending on who's pictured is it's pink. It was quite pink but sometimes the pictures make it. Look even more amazingly think depend on. The season tends to be kind of lighter darker shades of pink. That has the salt miners. That are out there. And kind of local people selling artwork in tourist items. So and so this is Lake Ripa. Yes my GRANDPA Loch rose. I think in French shore the lake what it can go by. I would say gory. Islands and Pink Lake would be to half day trips. That would make sense to have with your day or so exploring around the car so to make it two or three days for the car and it strives. You might say
Interview with Oki Mek, Special Advisor, HHS
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Schmeltzer. Our guest today is okay. Mack who is the senior advisor to the chief information officer at the US Department of Health and Human Services? Hhs So okay thank you so much for joining us on Ai Today. Thank you for having caffeine wrong. Yeah thank you so much for joining us. You'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at HHS. I am a. I am the senior adviser to Sasebo. And I'm also the technical integration. Lead but edgy reimagined but my background is really cybersecurity but my principal around cybersecurity. That just knowing cyber alone is not enough. You really need to know and understand the business I've been with. Hr FINANCE BUDGET GRANTS ACQUISITIONS. I was leaving sponsored to help onboard new employees for personnel security and badges and laptops. So I find that to be very critical and crucial in terms of modern nine station in the government just knowing to three sixty just understanding what you know what budget stream is coming through. What is the budget calendar Audi acquisition services and products and even just getting people on board with badges an laptop? Just getting that three sixty view and been very critical in terms of you know modernizing trying to innovate in trying to change the landscape Embracing Emerging Tech and dealing with big data paradigm shifts excellent. Yeah it's definitely the government's been very interesting. Adopter not just technology in general but especially with artificial intelligence. Because you know is is a transformative technology. Just like You know many of the other big transformative waves in the Internet and mobile and big data and the cloud and now five G. and then blockchain so all of these technology transformative right. They had changed a whole lot of things or multi. System the multidisciplinary and so obviously there are many ways that we see being applied to government agencies organizations. And we've been very impressed. One of the things that been talking about here a lot today is sort of the many ways in which is being adopted. Not only an industry as a whole but especially in government very impressive actually some of these ways that hopefully it's making the government more responsive more efficient more effective more. Give it more visibility into things. So can you tell us some of the ways that? Hhs is currently adopting AI and various solutions. And maybe how those ways are unique to. Hhs or perhaps similar to what other of different governmental agencies are doing in this space so we start of area to the CIO. And I started a program like celery leveraging ai machine learning and blockchain. It was the first watching network that had been authorized to operate in the federal government but in terms of a I think we are using similar to agency mainly we use it to clean and format the data and as you know you deal with a lot of data set the day. I need data. The biggest thing is cleaning the data. Ninety five I believe ninety percent of it is cleaning the data. People WanNa do they WANNA do machine learning they WANNA do. But they don't focus on they're gonna up a root of baking because Clinton. The data is the biggest component of that process. So we use a machine learning to basically normalize the data from different data sets using supervised and unsupervised learning to normalize the data. And then we also get into linear regression as well in terms of predictive analysis. One of the main thing that we'd do accelerate is looking at prices paid and just as so large we do about twenty five billion in spending on products and services just minding data and cleaning the data at it was a big call just to look at. Why are we buying things that different prices and a good example is? I'm just throwing the example while we buy that. Dobie pro at cms for aided aqua- eighty dollars per license and buying that CDC thirty dapper night or licensed an opportunity to mind data to come to the table to be able to negotiate a different price. You can't come to table to negotiate without having that insight so data claiming and looking at data mining and looking at predictive analysis the three main usage for a for us. That's great you know Melinda. We produced a report last year. And then we did a follow up report this year Dataprep prep and data labeling and I think that a lot of people underestimate how long it's going to take to actually get their data into a usable state so it's great that you pointed that out because I think that people underestimate the time and the difficulty that sometimes it can be actually get data in a usable state. Data's the heart of AI. So you need that. For these systems to learn as a government agency adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence can bring its own unique set of challenges that sometimes the private sector doesn't always run into. These can be issues around privacy data usage. What can and can't be used where it can be stored so can you tell us some of the challenges you've seen with Ai. Adoption in your agency and how you're overcoming them by the biggest mistake that people do is looking at the technology before they look at the business and the mission of agency. I always say that does no such thing at it. Project and the business project with it components. You have to start with the business. And what are you trying to saw? Most of these challenges that the EPA my experience I've been in a government close to twenty years half awaiting contractor in private industry and also have in federal government. The challenge is not the technology challenges to culture is leaning chain change management and. I don't think we do not a strategic planning. Just because we have one hundred idea doesn't mean we pursued ideas. We need to look at you know strategic planning comes into play. You may have one hundred ideas but you should only pursue one idea through strategic. Planning you know. The first thing is really feasibility studies. I didn't even feasible to at any regression issue. Anani downstream impact. Accountability is big. I think in terms of trying to modernize. Can you prove a concept just because you have this idea? People might think is a crazy idea but if you do it at a tangible way that you could prove that idea is feasible and it's scalable because you wanNA start small and scale that big as well. Sustainability is huge as well just because the project is a success. Doesn't mean that sustainable as your culture your agency your privacy mature enough to take on this new shining toy you know this new technology but the important part is marketability I we. I can't overemphasize that did not marketability is people. Don't think that the government market but you have to market you ideas. You have to win. The hearts and minds of the workforce the people that They coders you have to be able to market in different ways to senior leadership to middle managers workforce. I think culture is the biggest obstacle. But I think doing a thorough strategic planning analysis and putting emphasis on marketability analysis is key and the biggest part of marketability is human design is really engaging the workforce I'll model in terms of accelerated that. We're not building the solution. We are allowing the workforce to go to solution getting them engaged yet here at thoughts and pain point incorporating agile depth. Bob You know building something. Every two weeks and bring him back to them is a Saab issue and we cycled out every two or three weeks and that really is the key of getting people to lean in and to win the heart and mind of people.

Price Gouging Incidents Follow Coronavirus Outbreak
"Have you been to the supermarket recently? Tried to buy hand sanitizer even toilet paper. Basic supplies are selling out in the wake of the corona virus and that creates a problem in times of demand. Price-gouging can be a big issue. That is something New York attorney. General Letitia James has noticed. I asked her for the evidence that she's seen. We've issued a total of six letters to merchants for price gouging of hand sanitizers and disinfectants sprays. In addition to that we've sent out three cease and desist letters to merchants for selling products. They claim to treat or cure corona virus individuals who've been engaged in deceptive advertising. They include the televangelist. Jim Bakker who had a person on his show selling a product that claim to treat corona virus. And what they are doing is nothing short of taking advantage of the fears That's out there throughout the general public. And what we should be doing is spreading facts and not fear. So it's it's one thing to put forth a completely fraudulent cure or something that claims to be a cure for the corona virus. Price-gouging is more complicated. Is it not? How do you determine when raising prices across the line and becomes illegal price-gouging well in one particular instance and individual a store in midtown Manhattan with selling a hand sanitizer for seventy nine dollars and so? There's no definitive answer to that question. But you know it when you see it. And so I don't know of any hand sanitizer. That costs almost eighty dollars. And so you know when you see when individuals are taking advantage of the market particularly when neighboring stores selling the same product for considerably less the Justice Department created an agency called the National Center for Disaster Fraud After Hurricane Katrina. Do you think the federal government is doing enough to protect people from getting taken advantage of financially clearly The federal government can do more. I'm not in a position. Right now. To criticize the federal government it will not ignore to the benefit of anybody and it will not result in addressing the issue of this virus. And what we really should be doing is working together. The federal government should be working with municipal governments as well as state governments and providing US assistance and testing and providing all municipalities and private companies testing kits that we contested test the general public. And lastly what can consumers do if they encounter what they believed to be price-gouging in their state? So let me just say that. The Office of Attorney General. We have one Urging individuals caution with respect to making charitable donations if individuals want to report Retailers that appear to be taking unfair advantage of consumers. They can report these incidents to the office of Attorney General. You can report. Suspicious charitable solicitations and scams to the office of Attorney General. Our Charities Bureau and individuals are contacting the general public with respect to investment scams. They can contact our office as well as the United States Securities and Exchange Commission
Where to buy hand sanitiser as coronavirus spreads
"Worldwide because of coronavirus in Maryland at least five people have tested positive and one Washington DC visitor from Nigeria has been treated in a Maryland hospital blah blah goes on and on and on there's no vaccine since December when the outbreak of the disease began in China began to spread to other countries including the United States which has resulted in area retailers reporting a surge in sales of hand sanitizer cleaning agents and other items Grohl's market in Ruxton has had trouble keeping hand sanitizer Clorox wipes and with bleach and cans of milk in the stock quote I've never seen anything like it said assistant store manager Jeff major who has worked for the company for eighteen years Wednesday the store brought in two cases of beer L. hand sanitizer they sold out that day quote I think rubbing alcohol will be the next thing to go said general manager Tom Gilbert as he motioned towards a shelf missing the first two rows of merchandise fingers crossed we'll have hand sanitizer by March fifteenth he said are you noticing these sorts of things in your neighborhood are you noticing have you stocked up told you I went to buy toilet paper last week and there was no toilet paper at Costco none I went to a grocery store and they had toilet paper that wouldn't say they were fully stocked there about half stocked should have bought the whole thing eBay has banned the sale of hand sanitizer not because they don't want people to have hand sanitizer but because people are charging an arm and a leg I told you about how you can buy like a one of those small little pocket models for like twelve to seventeen dollars so there's opportunism capitalism always finds a way what are you noticing any of this stuff I'm just curious if it's how widespread it is because there was on social media over the weekend there were videos from Australia of all places of people literally fighting over toilet paper there's one mother daughter team fighting with another woman because the mother daughter team had a a shopping cart literally filled with toilet paper like overflowing we filled with toilet paper in fact in one area of the country they have put a limit on how much toilet paper you can buy because people were hoarding toilet paper is this just paranoid do you feel like you know the better safe than sorry Monaco is the way to go back to the sun story sandy Pierce spent the better part of Sunday searching for disinfectants preferably her trusty Lysol or Clorox her journey from big lots in Lutherville the CVS in harbor east in all she went to nine stores before calling it quits quote I wasn't going any further all this for a damn can of Lysol end quote piers said she hit the jackpot at Walgreens on York road in Timonium where she found a twelve ounce can of Lysol spray it was eighty dollars she exclaimed the private school teacher in realtor said she usually shops on Amazon but she said the supply shortages and price gouging forced her to embark upon her weekend quest I have noticed this I have seen it like even Amazon which stocks everything is out of hand sanitizer and they are selling second hand because you people don't know this but you can go online and sign up on Amazon and sell whatever you got on Amazon doesn't seem particularly useful for certain things most people don't go to Amazon for things that they usually go to eBay for so you're probably better off going to eBay but in general you can sell whatever you want and if you notice because my dad likes Hydroxycut keys I don't know why I don't know what the differences between the hydroxyzine oreo but he says the the oreos are no good and hydroxy loves hydroxide is always love hydroxyzine kid you just can't find it so I I found a money bag now if you're not looking if you don't shop around because you can pay the normal price for a package of cookies on Amazon you can also pay the exorbitant price for a pack of cookies on Amazon you just have to look at who's selling it and how much each you know how much it is per package and the size of package and all that sort of stuff the same is true for every product in there you can start your own company or just sell it out of your own house and decide to do you're going to charge fifty Bucks for a pack of toilet paper now if you're in the market for Sharman and you're not paying attention you just see all the search results there Sherman okay good I'm gonna click the Sherman added to my cart let's go check out I recommend you pay attention to what you click on online but people don't and it has happened mistakes have been made and you're screwed you bought it you lose the deal so you see all these things I went looking and I just out of curiosity I was looking for hand sanitizer and the hand sanitizer on Amazon was no different than the hand sanitizer on under eBay it was exorbitantly priced shall we say an eBay did not have or Amazon did not have any of their own you know like in stock sold by Amazon I'm looking at it right now let's see germ X. hand sanitizer regional travel size one point five ounces seven dollars twenty five cents that's what you're dealing with here so the paranoia the fear stoked by the media by people who don't know any better is having an impact will it have an impact on politics I don't know but it's definitely having an impact on people's behaviors there are people all over the world who are scared to death when the evidence to this point has shown not to be worth it not to be worthy of being scared to death being cautious absolutely being aware being alert yes no question about it washing your hands how disturbing is it that so many people need to be told to wash their hands in order for them to wash their hands the unit makes you want to never eat in a restaurant ever again if you need to be told to wash your hands it's just scary scary stuff says that the bank to the sun interview article hand sanitizer sales in the U. S. more than doubled in the four weeks ending February twenty nine compared to the same period a year ago according to market research firm Nielsen sales of thermometers spike spike fifty two point three percent during the same period sales of dried beans spiked nearly eighteen percent according to the Associated Press the disease is weighing on the minds of consumers at Grohl's market major re called and that an elderly customer require inquired earlier this week about the health of the stores Instacart
Oil prices climb ahead of OPEC meeting to discuss supply cuts
"But let's also talk about one of all of the stories this morning of course which is the APEC plus ministers meeting in Vienna emergency talks that own oil output and also the white at price in the market said this and said the IHS Markit says the old amount is actually headed for its worst ever quarterly drop in prices slumped twenty percent this year alone and yet Saudi Arabia and Russia remain split over the prospect of deeper production cuts as the current of always weakens global to Montel we joined this morning by the banks and me who died he was in Vienna for us good morning Ameri great to speak to you look it's it's quite typical isn't it it's a Riyadh and Moscow often quite Varma Paul to heads of the me saying what channels do you think that a deal without if you get done yeah that's exactly right we've seen this dance before this negotiations drawn out between Moscow and Riyadh they basically been turned out all of February because remember Riyadh wanted to move up the meeting an act urgently the question is as you say is this smoke and mirrors to try to surprise the market or is it a real serious split what we know right now is that Moscow could be more partial to just a rollover of the current supply cuts the ones that they've already decided on Riyadh wants a deep and them to one to one point five million barrels a day what's clear from the market is if they don't cut deeper we could possibly and definitely see actually definitely see a selloff in these oil prices in the Emory I mean is this a situation where unity will hold whatever comes out of this will everyone stick with it yes what happens in the OPEC buses they do normally stick to it kind of it's a bit of a fudges has they think is the best way to say Roger and I say a bit of a fudge because mostly what happens is Saudi Arabia and some other countries notably like Libya which is offline pretty much at the moment Venezuela they'll make up for some the deeper cuts that other countries have cheated in the past notably Iraq and as well as Russia Russia for sure has been the big winner at this whole OPEC plus deal Putin has been able to maintain this present in the Middle East is given a lot of Middle East clout on top of that financially they've been the beneficiaries of this club because Dave born much less of a share of these cuts than Saudi Arabia so Saudi Arabia note most notably like last time we'll just take on an extra burden because they want to see the prices pop Saudi Arabia needs eighty dollars a barrel about to budget their books while Moscow can do it on forty yeah absolutely is that price differential isn't that is so important but look is it is also a kind of an unprecedented moment isn't it this is a shock to the world economy because of coronavirus and that food to the oil market so it is kind of unprecedented to it's completely unprecedented we have flights canceled schools closed towns quarantine we're seeing serious demand destruction for only the fourth time in almost forty years oil consumption may not grow at all this year that's what some of a growing group of traders investors and analysts keep saying and Goldman Sachs this week first major of the Wall Street banks to forecast a contraction in demand this year and then you look at also wider picture not just the oil price what does it mean for the sector in Europe only five percent is made up of energy shares in the stock six hundred the benchmark index in the United States we had the sector in a bear market and this morning Jefferies put out this note that I just love because I'm a Yankee fan they say it's at the nineteen sixty two Mets let me tell you what the nineteen sixty two Mets did as a baseball team in New York yeah they lost a hundred and twenty games only one forty that's like the worst known team in baseball history and Jeffries is just saying we're done with it or J. and that's where the world

"eighty dollars" Discussed on The Tech Guy
"Hundred eighty dollars plus tax. And pick that sucker up. But you know, what? Samsung has delayed it, and I'm a little relieved I figured well. So you know, what happened right? The fold is not the first folding phone, we should say Samsung did not get pride of place for that. There's something called the Royal our ally. Oh, L E which was debuted in January at the consumer electronic show, the Royal. Was not that most swiftest. You know product. And I don't think anybody really bought it. But you know, Samsung, right? That's good. A Samsung phone that's going to be great Samsung's the leader number one in the world in smartphone. So that's so the nnounced a folding phone couple of months ago. Actually, they think they didn't they say they were going to do it. Maybe it was just a rumor can never distinguish the two in January. But in any event, they they announced it, and they said it's going to be on April than last week. Week before last really, they sent out units review what you know review units to a bunch of reviewers. So the way that's the way product reviews work in the tech industry. Select few lately, you know, a lot of YouTubers and bloggers used to be I can't win used to be because I did a radio show and podcasts that I couldn't get review units. They all went to the newspapers and magazines. And then for brief very brief period of time. I got I got review units never really liked getting review units from these companies because. It's not first of all you don't get to keep them for a limited time. So you especially with the phone you can't really dig in because you're not gonna have it long enough to make it yours. So it's it's kinda hard to review devices when you only have them for few weeks at least not sensibly, Alison like it. Because then you'd hear from the PR department when you're gonna do that review. How's that review coming along? And then when the review comes out, why did you say that you better justify it that kind of thing? Fortunately, I didn't didn't periods. I didn't last too long because then radio and podcasts weren't hot anymore. It was all about the YouTubers and YouTubers now get the lion's share and blogs tech blogs, get the lion's share review units. It's fine. With me. I like I said I'm fortunate enough I can afford to actually buy these products. And you know, it works out pretty well. Because I can always after I'm done with the review I can always send them to back for, you know, sell them or send them to family. You know, my daughter breaks phone every few months, so she she's always got a new phone, which is a hand-me-down. Right. So there's you know it works out. I can live with it. It's starting to hurt a little bit. When these devices are getting to be thousands of dollars.
