Lived a long time and have experienced a lot of wonderful things but Israel. I'm believable Bihar. And of course, it leaves it says sign on my way overlooking. World. Let's just bring it back to today in this country. I think it's fair to say that British Jews experienced a visceral form of antisemitism that they have never done before with the election of Jeremy Corbyn, the leader ship of the Labor Party and the genuine threat that should he have won the election in December twenty nine hundred thank goodness didn't that Future, existence in the united.

Could you feel parallels with what she experienced in Vienna announced the damage as a child not at all not at all and no people's starting to be afraid he upset about it. But as always say Sicily announcing and you know unfortunately antisemitism has always been and always be I don't know why but it is affects. Who is essential his and? It does it's just. It's language. So it's subsequent assist inborn in the people, but it is thus Mention it just same. Like what this I'm doesn't. Nazi. Time. So I must say, it doesn't really bother me and mustard personally offend million may. Not experienced any antisemitism in again thank you for making that clear. Now, you lived in the same apartment block in Amsterdam and frank, and you were only a month apart in Asian. Playmates together in early teenage, and then in nineteen forty two, you both went into hiding to avoid the Nazi effort to capture Jews in Amsterdam. Now, you'll family was captured by the Nazis after being betrayed by double agent in the Dutch underground and transported to Auschwitz. You father and brother didn't survive the ordeal, but you and your mother were barely alive while you afraid by Soviet troops in nineteen, forty five. How Did it feel.

Understanding Early Muslim History and Sectarianism, with Dr. Ali Ataie
"Elliott I. It is a rental student in researcher WHO's been involved in interfaith activities for over two decades. He holds a Master's in Biblical studies with a focus on. New. Testament and Biblical languages. He also holds a PhD in cultural historical studies in religion from the graduate. Theological. Union his doctoral work focused on Muslim Herman UNIX of Biblical texts especially, the Gospel of John. And he lives, in Santa, cinnabon California with his wife Royer and three daughters. So welcome to the show Dr Ali tight. Thank you because local good to be back for a third time. Yes. We're always excited and I know in the past we've had you You know on the show to Kinda talk. About Christianity. Were of sort of interfaith conversations in the audience as well as US. We benefited him immensely from those on. So I thought this would be a little bit different. I know something that you would probably consider a little bit outside of your wheelhouse or area of expertise perhaps but I would contend that you know i. if you are perfectly suited in a sense that not only given your background that you touched upon on the first episode but to really kind of have a conversation a, that is related to an intra faith. Issue of between kind of the she and the Sunni tradition and I say that. Because Dr your background actually your family background has something you had mentioned the first time we had this conversation you come from a she background your family is or remain or is still short she yes might my parents or practicing Shiites to use the Latin sort of suffix please them or she I guess we can say. So Yeah mink growing up. We were like I don't typical sort of Iranian so. No religion really anywhere and freedom to do whatever we wanted. Think. However, we wanted but as my parents got older, they rediscovered their. Roots their Shiite woods. So there you know they may have two, thousand, six and they're. Very, devout Shia now. so for me growing up however. I actually, never really considered myself. a Muslim until I got into. College. and. Then the brothers I met initially were so knee and they sort of against to enter the wing and and copy. Islam. In an over the years, of course, with I've had. Great conversations with my parents on on certain things and. What's the significance of this event in history you? How do you interpret this verse? What about this Heidi Eve? Things like that So that's that's where a standard now. Yeah, I mean you off air you made the caveat This isn't sort of an area of study or expertise for you on, but not only just given the family background but I would I mean as someone who is really a deep student of history I think that a I think some of the the touch points that we wanNA focus on in today's conversation on it'd be really nice to hear your thoughts on because essentially couple I wanted to make to clarifying points and then kind of dive right in, and that was related to the last episode of the two parter we did with the amount weenie. Is that for the listener someone some heard my question or my line of questioning as. Kind of questioning Sunni orthodoxy around some of these historical issues and I wanted to clarify that wasn't the case I mean I'm not I wasn't sort of trying to place. Any doubts on the Sunni narrative were the Sunni approach to these the historical events that we touched on but rather it was really as I said at the outset of the conversation with the Amati 'cause Weenie that this was not meant to be a debate. We weren't there to debate a Sunni points at the allergy were a Sunni the Sunni approach to some of the historical of historical events that we talked about. So it was more of being able to be deferential. To our guest and give him the opportunity to really essentially lay down the narrative of early. Muslim. History according to the cheese sources. So I, wanted to clarify that from some of the questions that I asked not for you professor Italian but rather listener Number two with regards to this particular conversation where things more meaningful to you is that the purpose of this show is not to have you on to serve offer the Su Ni reputation, right to the points that were raised in the last episode. This is not a polemic, a polemical conversation. Again, we're not here to sort of do that. That's not the approach that at least i WanNa, take I imagine all three of us don't WanNa take it's more of a deep dive or as deep as we can get given time constraints and so on on into kind of the Sunni perspective on some of the issues, there are some of the events that we focused on last time. Good. Bremer. Great. Great. So I think or if you had any thoughts or any comments you wanted to make otherwise I'd be happy to kind of dive right into it with. A tiny. No I just want to echo that like I decided emptying Irwin Cup of understanding and just trying to understand and learn in that conversation we weren't coming with their own. Ideas to the table. They were not that we were undermining ideas. We just put them to the sites we can learn.

Flowers for Drying With Jenny Elliott
"Honestly, after the very dry year we've had maybe it's a good thing. We're talking about dry flowers. And my only background with dried flowers really as being the granddaughter of a sort of Victorian era lady and I mean lady as she was very proper my grandmother who gardened and had a wooden flower press and made pressed flower pictures of them. But we didn't have arrangements and today we're GonNa talk about kind of growing in arranged drying in arranging things. So can i. just try anything or like where does it all begin? Yeah well, I mean, yes, you can dry anything basically, but it's not all going to look good right right Oh. There's there's specific things that really lend themselves to trying that either have like you know keep their color or fun textures or that are otherwise useful for whatever you want to use them for it because there's all kinds of things you can use them for you. Okay So. They're sort of. In in exceed catalogs before along the way, this year's been going it seems like it's just whooshing by in a weird red dystopia way but. You know before we know what we're. GonNa see seed catalogs and if I'm looking, there are some that are everlasting is right and those are sort of the dried flower. Those are the ones that that's what they're supposed to be for is that the idea and then but you dry other things? Yeah Right. So there's all the ones that you think of when you think of dried flowers right? Straw flower comes to mind status is one the those flowers Gomphrena maybe you know the globe amaranth which are practically dry when they're fresh, right? Right hell that they're going to be a good dried flower. 'cause you touch them when they're freshman they're all crinkly and they make that kind of rattled found. You know. Yeah. So so those we always do I, grow lots and lots of that stuff because that stuff they're good dry flowers because they keep their color so well. So they're bright vibrant colors and then you try them and they stay bright and vibrant, which is really nice. But then there's also a whole bunch of other things that you would look at out in the garden and. Wonder. If maybe it would make a nice dried flower and a lot of the Times. They do a lot of the Times. It takes some experimentation and and sometimes there's things that look like they wouldn't dry at all. But you know surprise if you try it out, they do quite nicely I tried ridiculous this spring and they dried beautifully and I was very. pleased. I am imagining are do you in fact grow like either as Lark per del Finian for drying? Do you is that? Yeah I grow I wrote extra extra extra large spread for drying 'cause it drives. So beautifully at holds its color, you have a lot of choices of colors. So that's one that I used to just grow a fresh flower and always regretted every winter not having more of it dried. So now I think I've doubled production, we grow like eight hundred feet of lurks per now and. Probably. At least half of that goes up into the drying loss and we'll talk about the drying lost and all that good stuff in a minute. We will get a little more info on the what I yeah. Yeah. The what Yeah I've been walking around the fields the last few days you know thinking about what's going to go into the drying loss and actually you know I, start putting things in the drawing left as early as Well with Renungio is April, April may June I used to really wait and like you know those couple of days before the first frost came I would run around like an insane person trying to cut all the flowers. And hang them in the law. but turns out it all works out better. If you just you know pick the nice stuff the garden when it's ready in a timely manner go figure. So, So right now when I'm walking around, there's all of you know there's this drop lower in the status and I have a new row of Hydrangea, which are really nice that will drive beautifully and then conference and. So many kinds of Celosias are viewed for drying and then the marigolds that you've mentioned that's something that people are always surprised about I do the tall cutting miracle and they keep their their color really really well, they drive. Really nicely. And then some other things I have hanging up already are you know from the perennials that has come and gone already? I dry a lot of economic. that goal Jaro cloth of gold or the parkers variety. That keeps its color really nicely I didn't do it this year but back annual I guess bells of Ireland drives beautifully. moby m you know is one of my favorites. actually what the common name winged everlasting, right? It tells you right in the need. Is Pure pure white when you dry it, which is really unusual to for something to actually stay white and not get money when you it. Right. So those are some
Automation In Business
"Thanks so much for joining me today well. Yeah absolutely. I'm excited to be here I'm excited to have you here talking about automation and Based on what I know about you and that you love to tinker with this stuff This is going to be a an enlightening and educational conversation at least for Ray. For sure. Tinkering is one of the things I do best. Got It wonderful. Okay. So talk to me about no, you're all about automation. So talk to me about the pros of automation. I would say the number one pro of automation is allowing you to scale your business without having to scale the people. When you scale with automation, you are essentially handing off task or duty. To a robot. So it just really allows you to it over and The best way to put this, there's no subjectivity. The robot doesn't wake up one day and say I just don't feel like going into work. Like it's it's it's a very. Zeros. At. So I really liked that aspect of it are things obviously that you can't hand off to a robot, you can't hand off to. To to a piece of code or or a to an automation. And and you know that some of the cons, but but I love the ability to to build out. Okay. Now, I can handle what to what to people would have had all but I did it all by. Handing off to a a robot I, talk about automation and talk about you know. How to find the pivot points. And the three words that I use to describe. Those points are automate delegate eliminate actually started a podcast my own. called. Automate delegate eliminate and that that that idea automate Elliott or eliminate is is what you're doing is you scale a business. Okay so Let's talk about that. So because that sounds to me like that is A three step like decision right so we're making a decision is an I understand this that we're going to automate it we're going to delegate or we're going to eliminate it. Yeah. So we call it a pivot point. And the pivot point comes from. That moment when you stop and say, okay, how are we going to actually grow this thing where we going I? Mean it very similar to the title of Your podcasts, accelerate your business rate that moment when you're like it is time to pushed on the pedal the how of pushing down that pedal. Goes into those three that three-pronged are we going to automate, elevate or eliminate this task and the only way to grow your business is to decide to eliminate tasks that aren't adding to the bottom line to delegate tasks that cannon should be delegated to he would be or to automate tasks that should be handed to a robot. Is there. So I guess, my question is. How do you deter? I get the eliminate I think that one. MIGHT BE? Easier but I, guess I'm wondering how we A business owner would determine our. You know a business leader would determine whether something should be delegated or automated So I actually have a litmus test that I use specifically for that end and just so you and your listeners are aware. This is something I've developed of four years and I'm happy to share It's been super exciting to of pick this apart see where it's going. So the litmus test that I use is, could this task be handed to another employee in the business? Who let's say that there are a an intern with a level of understanding of maybe excel google sheets an email so so they don't really have. A ton of experience, but could it be handed to someone like that and would it take me the same amount of time to do it as it would to teach someone to do it so you gotta think like it's something. I only have to teach them how to do once and you can kind of get a feel for these because you'll start going through them in your mind will start to numb and. Why am I doing now? and. That is a good indication of something that should be automated
"Let's talk some CDL playoffs if you would indulge me. Because we now know officially the two worst teams in the League and the two teams going home with nothing you you collect your paychecks, but you get nothing you are the only people in the company not getting Christmas bonus. So congratulations to Seattle and La gladiators. Yeah I mean for for for both of. The two hundred K. minimum they you just. Lost in one series essentially right because even if the other to flake out next round, which could very likely happen. Just lost one hundred K now, the only person that's happy about this whole situation. Is Aches kids he he saved himself a little bit of time. He got a free weekend in if anything. He he out a couple of weeks prior. In our preview show and I posted up my bets. Earlier, today for those who follow on twitter I posted my betting odds and who I took. For today and tomorrow's matches because that was already up there I. Honestly I took. Seattle to cover the spread, which was just a plus one and a half meaning they only had to win. Just, take it to a map five which given the fact that I thought they were going to win. And I don't know why looking back on it. I'm dumb like what have we learned in CDL very rarely do we get surprised right? Very rarely? Are we shocked by outcomes with the CDL this year? That's not a bad thing. But Damn Seattle. They threw it in. I said Seattle might be one of the sleeper teams that could make. Losers out of the two teams that we thought were going to lose which were La. GLADIATORS LAG and. Which is super funny. Given their Elliott. Yup and and Seattle. Said gladiators. That's their overwatch. Watch won't be the last time. I've probably made that mistake a thousand times on the show and you never caught it so. They're purple there. You know you know how it goes For making that clear that's that's really on them. That's not my issue. La was going to be the team I. Thought guerrillas had more of a reason to throw it in just because aches did just recently bail on them pretty much publicly announcing like, yeah we don't stand a chance. So I thought that was the team was going to take it back to the locker room and be like guys. We really don't stand a chance, but they actually performed very well against a optic team that everyone is picking to be the sleeper team. The could've got three hundred though Kenny disconnected in both of those losses you know so For them, that was just a terrible situation that we're past. The point of you know the restart being possible according to the rules which nobody seems to agree with in even myself like both of those cases, it very easily could have been replayed. The score was close enough at the time in some cases even got closer than forty five situation especially on the hard point map where I think optic took the lead for a brief moment there but guerrillas got both of the winds on the backs of of Kenny getting disconnected. So yet theoretically did go to a game five but. I look at that series as it was fairly one sided in my mind. There were moments where guerrillas I thought looked really good but again, it's just so hard to judge either of their wins in both came in forty-five situation. Now, I didn't touch that when it came to betting I'm I'm an odds better image and really the odds weren't that great on either one like I hadn't had little faith in gorillas and it just wasn't worth the risk of losing it but I wanNA talk a little bit about the Kenny situation. So obviously, he had a sub in for game five. Because he he just wasn't confident enough in his Internet connection to survive. Again, because you said, he ended up dropping was it the first to? Map One and map four four. Okay. Anyway. He ended up dropping out of two lagging after I kind of put this on the League's on the League. In the sense of it is twenty twenty you gotTa have a separate client for your pro league for situations like this right and it's kind of the beauty with counterstrike in the sense of like it's very open source in the sense of any tournament organizers say the and it's happened before right? Some connection drop something happens and they need to reset will they kind of just take it to the next the most previous round and they can punch in there okay. What was the economy at whose economy was what? Okay you had this gun aright Pablo Bob Bam. Bam. It's now thirteen to eleven again, restart. I don't understand how the only solution we have four league. And I constantly bring this up because it does set the standard that costs at least like what twenty five Mil to get in the only solution you have to where if someone lags out in a game that's online right and you're in your servers are all over the place is well play ball right it is you play where the ball wise and I just I don't really it's almost like there was I mean obviously there's not a plan B but it's like they never even thought of what do we do right? Yeah like the developers the first to blame in this situation for night giving that ability right like the choose not to they noticed a yearly game maybe it's just extra work whatever. But then the CDL is is just as equally to blame because they need to also understand that those things are not possible. So we need to have rules in place that everybody feels at least most people agree to as being fair you know there are already rules in place prior to the CDL being there in both of those maps would have been replayed in either of those instances but the rule said that the CD Ellis has laid out. Didn't allow that to happen. So you're sitting there watching a four be five. Talk about a newsletter at that point like, yeah you might be rooting for the team with four, but it's so unlikely that it that it happens that it's you know. Throw players. Professionals this isn't some pug that you're playing in. Right. This is these are these are pros. They're not losing a four on five not going to happen.
How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?
"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.

"The Newport Beach Film Festival obviously could not be held in public this year, so The event. Organizers instead decided to do something kind of fun, and they did this with the help of that broadcast on pop TV, and they surprised Eugene Levy. They want to give him the lifetime achievement award. And so they thought, we'll do it like kind of via video conference, and then they said, Well, we've got a surprise. We're not the only ones who wanted to congratulate you. But there are a couple other friends who also wanted to say a few words. And then it goes into this 10 minutes. Essentially, ah, tribute video to him from various people now, too, that you will hear from including cast members from Bleeps Creek there on this is well, but the two that you'll hear from our his longtime pals. Steve Martin and Martin Short, who pop up probably four different times. In this tribute video keeps bouncing back, which is really cool for the video. It's not like you hear four minutes from Martin Short. It's 10 seconds here. 15 here eight seconds with this guy 30 seconds with that girl, Here's Steve Martin and Martin Short toasting. Eugene Levy. But you know, Eugene, you're special because You. Our person, You know, I see people on the streets, sometimes in crowd sometimes alone. I think Eugene could be down the street. He is a person and I happen to know At the Newport Beach Film Festival wanted to give this to a person he was becoming this absolute living legend. Eugene. I was telling everyone how you become a legend. It's just that it's his son, Isaac Daniel Daniel Levy, his son, a fellow co star and co creator of Bleeps Creek, hey is featured throughout Angela Harris, his former co star from SC TV. He Barton, short, Angela Martin and a few others, John Candy, I believe for a time. Over an SC TV. This Canadian improv sketch comedy group and television show Catherine O'Hara was Catherine O'Hara. Yes, yes, And, of course she opposite. She's upset him in Bleeps Creek as well, but it's really It's just sweet and it's fun. And so many people just talk about his kindness. In Ah, how sweet of a guy he is and how much of a professional he waas on set there and just really took the acting and I I think he said, Look, we don't want to play this for laughs, Bleeps Creek. He was like we'll play it as it's written, and he knew that it would result in laughs, but he didn't want extra Ham up everybody's lines all the time to try to hit you over the head with it. Chris Elliott, his Bleeps Creek Co star appears with the longest thickest white beard. You've ever seen. It puts David Letterman's to shame. It's really something.
The Rise of V/One
"Be talking about a new player in the Space v one and the rise of e one, right So. They are a new. No Code. Mobile APP. And they boast as erode learning curve. So that's what they've been. You know hyping themselves up to be. But recent hype suggests that V. One is the next big player in the space with investments from notable individuals like Jason Calkins. They have been building momentum through twitter as they seem to be replicating Elliott's Hi Benji. this is not always a good thing as I used Elliott in it really was just hype. So the question is will be one fizzle out and carry the same disappointing launch the Elliott did. I don't believe so in here's my wife. So number one. The founder so Jeremy. Redmon. The founder and CEO v one is one of the most passionate people that I've ever met. Especially, when it comes to his company, so know he would fight tooth and nail for the success of you one and. Really, focused on giving a true experience Paul has users as he is no coder himself. And it is clear that he's passionate about customer service and the success of his users while that doesn't scale on one level I think it will set them apart especially at first and they'll be able to use that as a catalyst to shoot them until competition in the next six months and I. think that's where they differentiate themselves from all the other mowatt builders that are popping up. Number two is I have seen in used the product. So Jeremy sent me a demo of the product. After we first talked in capabilities and it boasts a short user experience an easy to use drag and drop block to build out your APP and part of the. Zero. Learning curve is you can build out it from scratch rate using buttons, texting all of that, or you can build using full screen modules. So not only do I think that it is unique to code space, but they are adding features by the week with the most recent feature actually being released recently in they dropped a thing on twitter about it and it's a canvas integration with images and buttons. So the in-app version of Cambe opens up giving you the ability to Zayn full screens or images or whatever you want at your APP and publish them into your APP with a single click. So that's pretty big considering. To my knowledge there there's nothing like this out there right now. So that's pretty pretty bad ass, and I'm excited to see how people use that. And then number three is too big to fail. With investors like, Jason Cal Kansas from launch and other prominent firms backing be one. It provides us with a sense of assurance and it's clear some of the most influential names in private equity support and believe in the future of this product. So I have to ask myself why should I and I'm not GonNa lie I had very similar thoughts with Elliott as the community rallied around them, even though the majority hadn't even seen or interacted with the product. And but I I would say given the other two pillars I believe the ones legacy will be much greater than theirs So you know while Elliott had also raised a significant amount of money and had a group of supporters like no other, they had a lot of negatives bogging them down with the way they publicly handle things and I think V. One I've I've already seen. They've they've handled things well. So I think V. One, will succeed based on the combination of the three pillars above and I'm really excited to watch them grow and launch with their upcoming Hackworth on August fifteenth which they said is there soft launch? For underrepresented founders and it's a five hundred dollar cash prize you get unlimited access for seventy two hours and then on. August twenty seventh I believe that's like their full launch and that'll be their public launch in their second act thon for anyone who wants to be involved, and that's another seventy two hours with another five hundred or cash prize. So they have some big things coming up, they have some partnerships with no code space and with underrepresented. Groups organizations in Ohio. So yeah I I think that they're that they're really on the right path and I'm excited to see how they end up in two to three months with their customer success that they're focused on customer success, and then also with you know the easy to use builder because they're targeting really no code people compared to you know. People that kind of have technical knowledge rights they're going for those that are too lazy to learn a learning curve.
Did This Secret Tournament Put Players in Danger?
"In July thirty, first the American. Gaming Network was supposed to host the AG call of duty, Indianapolis Land Event is being promoted as one of the biggest amateur caught events out there with a prize pool of seventy five hundred dollars to be clear. This tournament was not a part of Challengers League, which is the official semi Pro League of Kati Sports AG is a third party tournament organizers according to their website runs tournaments for call of duty Ballard and Rainbow Six. Siege now, as you can imagine what the world in the midst of a pandemic having a bunch of sweaty dudes, Patton to a convention hall is not the Best Look. So on July thirty first the day the tournament was supposed to start Aga decided to move the tournament on mine quote after discussions with representatives from activision, we are decided to change the Indianapolis to be online only for health and safety concerns players are advised to. Participate in the tournament from their home location along we apologize for any inconvenience in which this may bring upon players spectators in organizations. We look forward to working with activision for future events and quote this sentiment was repeated on August first by Jeffrey Elliott who according to a website is the CFO of the company, and well, that sounds like the obvious and smart thing to the tournament allegedly continued as land event later, that same day. Basically, what you just saw looks like that land event with a bunch of Sweaty dudes packed into a convention hall exactly what agents said they didn't want to happen on top of that. Another video surfaced that looks like a bunch of people packed new AIRBNB trying to continue playing the tournament online. Gauge cash a CO founder of. Who has a name that belongs in Mortal Kombat. Distance themselves from the event and said that the indy open was to be played online period but according to report from dexterity, there were allegedly agent employees at the event despite saying they had nothing to do with it. People were even alleging that Augean only put that original statement to hide from activision blizzard who are the publishers of duty. The fact that this land event was still taking place. Now, this whole situation caught the attention of dominating Jilin know who's the general manager for the Toronto Ultra a pro call of duty. Team competing in the call of duty league. She replied to a tweet with quote I reported everything to activision blizzard absolutely stupid and I can't believe that they thought they'd get away with it and be bold enough to posted about it and a former event organizer Adam epic. Kella even weighed in calling the situation a disaster I also reached out to cash Elliott and multiple sponsors associated with the tournament cash. told me that the narrative online is full of lies in isn't true but didn't explain why that's the case and Elliott just pointed to a statement that made after all of. This controversy popped off quote in order to preserve the competitive integrity of the online tournament, we have decided to postpone the second day of competition to next Sunday August ninth twenty twenty due to an overwhelming amount of players away from home with the inability to play in a safe environment we feel that this is the best way to ensure that everyone is competing safely and fairly the remainder of the tournament and quote also when I went back to gather more information on the indie open agent has deleted the page from their website now, even if players ignored AG and Cassius statements. that the tournament had been moved online and even if he had nothing to do with this secret land tournament, the question I have is, why did they wait until the day of the event to move it online? It's not like the pandemic caught everybody off guard both the League and the challengers. League moved all of their remaining tournaments online months ago. Why couldn't agm do the same and remember representative of activision reached out again, which according to their statement is why they decided to move the tournament online and that's pretty big red flag because to me what that says is that was fully prepared to host a pretty big land event in the middle of a pretty dangerous public health crisis, and the only reason they didn't is because activision wealth stepped in and told them not to because let's be honest when you plan to host a land event in the middle of a giant global health crisis, you were putting people in danger now, I have no idea. A is going to take disciplinary action against the players who did show up to this secret tournament. Also cash if you remember is a CO founder of Augean re tweeted somebody comparing the multiple worldwide human rights protests with these tournaments implying that if one is allowed to happen, these tournaments should also be allowed to happen and yeah I don't know if that's chief if Augean knowingly. Secret Land. Event, after saying it was going online that's fucked up and they put people in danger and if that's the case I, hope activision blizzard takes action against these guys.

Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

Seattle Kraken: NHL announces name of 32nd franchise
"These story of the week the Seattle thirty two's have a name. They are the Seattle cracking before we drill down and getting some of the. Pacific says a Sandy Atlantic about this. How important was the events of this week for Seattle for the NHL? Like how big a deal is this for the League? It's a huge deal and first of all. It was a fun topic Jeff. Life is hard for people right now. And that was a fun couple of hours. The reveal the video, the look at the Jersey. The name like whether people like the name or didn't like it. They were kind of laughing like Whoa. That's really off the board and I know you don't like it. Because of the nicknames that can come from it, but I love it. It's different. It's different for hockey. It's a step out of the. The normal, it's bold. It's it's a change. It's a try it something new, and I think hockey badly needs that. There were a couple of interesting things I've found out in some conversations number one when they were talking about the Jersey with the people from Adidas one of the things they were saying is we have to imagine what it would look like to lift the Stanley Cup? In this Jersey we can't think that it's going to. To look terrible to lift the Stanley Cup in this Jersey and I liked the Jersey. I liked that way of thinking i. think that's very big. The other I heard that was interesting, was that they chose the name crack and I, and then they went about the identity, the logo and the Jersey and the like the story line of the cracking, and there were some people who heard the name and they were like, are you? You, sure about this, is this really a good idea? And then they started to see the logo and the identity behind it, and they bought in and a lot of times when expansion teams come in. They won't reveal the name the logo end the Jersey at the same time they'll do maybe name and logo at once and Jersey later. This was a win because they did all three at once and I think that's sold people. I think they had to do it that way. And I I think you're right and to the point like we've talked about before I, wanted sasquatch. Works on a whole lot of levels, but again as I pointed out on this podcast before I've realized, and I've been dragged kicking and screaming into this realization that not everything is for me, and that's okay now. I don't want to I gotTa WanNa shoot an Arrow and then paint a circle around it after it lands I. Don't WanNa. Be That Guy Oh. Yeah I, liked it all along cracking his great. Oh a homerun tape measure, but at that reveal. I didn't hate it. Like I love the colors I love you collars look great. The colors are great. The logo looks great. I can get used to crack in and the one. You're think is a good one. It is different. It is distinct and the one expectation that I think we all have a bow. Seattle at this point is that everything they do is going to be new is going to be progressive is gonNA surprise a lot of people whether it is the name which is very nontraditional, whether it's the first you know green arena climate pledge arena. Everything they do is going to be different. We expect that they're hiring policies progressive the way that they are going to do business as progressive I. Just hope that it doesn't stop now I. Don't think that it does but what does do Elliot selfishly since I have conceded sasquatch. Bang the drum for different colored ice for Seattle Oh my God. I knew you're GONNA. All all our producer I wrote down actually I got to tell you I wrote down. When does jeff come up with the different colored? Ice Oh my God yeah. I'm telling. Pretty, it'd be this early. It will put it this way Jeff. If one team's going to do it, it's going to be this one well. They WANNA. They're promoting. They have the green arena, so do green ice here you go. Here's your chance. I'd love to see if the NHL allows this you know. It reminds me a lot of the raptors. When the raptors came in new, there were a lot of people didn't like raptors and I remember. John Bits of doing an interview on the Fan with Bob McCowan and John. biddle said Bob. What do you think of the name and he goes Bob? Said I hate it and John biddle said good. That means that you're not in our target audience so I! Don't care what you think about it. And the other thing, too, is you talk about the team? Look at their twitter feed now that we have a name or strategizing all the ways to draft your favorite player. Yeah, like there are people in the league. Telling me I'm sick of these guys already sold. The rivalries are building. Yes, rivalries are building so the other two Jeff I I'd heard was. I heard the amount of meetings over the small details were unreal. The color of the is how many is you know I didn't realize I saw the video. When you look at the logo, the S has tentacle through it. like that black line is the tentacle of the cracking, and there was one person who told me that They weren't so sure about this until they saw that video and I have to say identify with that. When I saw the video and saw that that's what that black line was supposed to be. I thought that was really cool. What are the things about the whole reveal by? Seattle is the security around at the secrecy around. It the lack of leaks. I thought for sure that by the morning of the announcement it would be out there and confirmed by somebody I'll tell you the one thing that I learned from one of maybe if not my favorite movie of all time jaws. Is this Don't show the shark. Secret that movie is they don't show the shark until much later on. Don't show the shark and the one thing that Seattle did in this entire process is. They didn't show the shark like sure. There was a temptation there to extend the metaphor. Show the shark, but they didn't do it. Even in that video as everybody is going through this pruder's style frame by frame by frame, trying to look for clues I gotta give it to Seattle Man. They didn't show the shark at all. One of the big conversations I heard after they decided the name was. What's the Mascot GonNa look like. Well and that's when you get the rivalry about DETROIT WITH DETROIT. Yes, it looks too much like a traditional octopus. It won't. There's no way it will. No of course not, and they also said like the Jersey, the crack and has to look. Not like a WIMP, it can't be a wimpy cracking I. Don't know enough about mythological creatures. I'm not sure there can be a wimpy cracking. Does it exist I? Doubt it every movie I've ever mccracken. They're pretty nasty, but they definitely talk about that. We can't have a soft cracking. So the jerseys were revealed the branding is revealed and Tim Leiweke, who's a CEO of the Oak View Group was on hockey central with us. The day of the announcement and he let something slide. Let something slip. That was pretty interesting. We spent more time going back and look at the Metropolitans. In the fact, they won the Stanley cow, so we spend a lot of time looking at that history and tradition. I won't spill all the beans, but I'll tell you. There's a third and Fourth Jersey coming. Eventually wore on her that legacy in that tradition. Hundred Seventeen team. Of course when the won the Stanley Cup I would imagine that if they're winking at history that hard, and I think that they will. That will probably see Abana raising on opening night while you're going to do something special rate. I think they'll do a number of the special things on opening night I would imagine that would be one of them. Yes, and you know a nice touch too here. We are here here. He goes, SEATTLE. Here's here's a million ideas here on this podcast. HAP Holmes was the goaltender for that Seattle team homes played on a number of Stanley Cup, champions real good goaltender born in Aurora in the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame, died relatively young I think it is early fifties in Florida, but he wore a baseball cap. I think it might have been the first goaltender in the NHL to ever wear a baseball cap. It would be nice if they did something with HAP Holmes and abate. I don't know what it is I'm just doing this off the top of my head, but if someone is wearing a hap-. Maybe it's whoever the goaltender is for. The opening ceremony wears a HAP, Holmes baseball hat that would be a nice touch for the. Hockey nerd like me out there. WHO DIDN'T GET SASQUATCH well? One thing I looked up was to Seattle have any retired numbers and they don't. Remember when Ottawa came in had an old retired number. Frank Finnegan, and they honored it. But Seattle, I can't sense that they do. Okay, so now. Seattle's job is to make this team to create this team out of nothing not unlike what Vegas went through most recently. Do. They have a friend in the flat Cap Seattle All I. We talked about this last week. I, think they're a huge winner. In the new CBA their job just became. If easier is the right word, but I they gain some real advantages and. A few teams have said that to me that the mistakes Vegas they were going to avoid them now. Circumstances have dictated that someone's going to have to make them, and it's a huge advantage for them. There's no question from a financial point of view Elliott. We just mentioned the flat cap here second ago. Given the economic realities NHL NHL is going through now, and we'll go through in the next couple of seasons I know. I opened up by saying how important is Seattle team, but I'll ask it again from an economic point of view to this team, not just become where the more important teams in the NHL team thirty two new infusion of money. Well there's no question that that's true and new infusion of enthusiasm to the Batman, and daily made it very clear and their negotiations with the players that ownership cash flow was very important. They got expansion money that players don't share in from Vegas and there were some owners who thought they didn't get enough. In terms of the system stuff, edgy arbitration that they wanted, but one of the things they could be sold on was that they've expansion money coming in, and that's their win, and that's cash, so there's no doubt that Seattle's big for a lot of reasons, and the other thing too is even before this. There were people who were predicting. Predicting that Seattle would be a top ten revenue team in the NHL. They're gonNA need that. They're merchants already hot negative. That's one of the reasons. It didn't get out because it's not ready at right me, you can order stuff, but I learned through this process that one of the ways that logos and names get leaked Jeff is that you have to share them with vendors or you presale them to vendors and things like that. They didn't do it this time. They didn't do it this time day. Kept it all close Alright talk, congratulations, seattle you now have a name in the NHL has team

"So I like to stop at this Arco that is on the way, it's in Bakersfield California and it's on the way to my cabinet, and it's just just as the road leaves. Bakersfield, and enters an endless series of. Oil derricks and And Orange Trees. That goes on for about ninety minutes. the the freeway just turns into a you know a narrow. Nothingburger for a long time, but right before that. There's a really cheap arco like to stop for Gas and you know what. Maybe I'll get some sour cherry balls to. Great gas station snack, so I stopped there and. It's a pretty sizable gas station. You know there's probably nine pumps three sets a three. I'm going to say. and. CATTY corner from me directly in my line of sight, but on the other side of the on the other side of the pumps and a little further ahead of me. Was a woman getting out of her car. And you know how sometimes you stop at the gas station, and that's your chance to clear the trash out of your car. You just dump it there in the in trash candidate on the island. It's a great place to get rid of trash because he. It's yeah, it is. That's the great. It's a great place to get rid of our trash I like I love that you were about to explain why you're about to go into the points of it and a place where you can drive your car up to a trash can and just sit there in glen all your trash out. It is a great place. Cards. I only explication necessary I have been self conscious lately about people I know seeing me cleaning out my car trash I think. Listen I'm I. Am I'm not a man who looks cool often. I I. have. Never taken a picture of myself I move awkwardly throughout the world. But I feel like I. AM at my most. Gelatinous when I have an armload of car trash when I have like a kind bar wrappers. And and five target good and gather seltzer cans I. Think I feel like a monstrous bell ringer when I am carrying car trash, have you ever? Where you stop, and you open up your car and just like. Three or four half empty water bottles out. Yeah, grounds deal. That's just terrible. Yeah, you really feel like your life is a mess in that it's gotten away from you and I I will sometimes clean out my car trash at like at the public pool before my swim team and like just. Because of the. Pools filters you say as you throw cans. Soda Cans I am so like because because of how generally good-looking everybody on the swim team is, I am so afraid of one of them seeing me. Dragging my car trash, my target bag full of rappers out of the car. Anyway so yeah, that's why I love to do it. At the gas station fewer little little chance somebody. You know, we'll see you, so there is a move you have to do when you're climbing out of the car. If you're so they the simplest way to get rid of the trash is going to be you get out of the car. You put the pump in you. Start Pumping, and then you go you circle back and you gather your trash and throw it away while the gas pumps. Yeah, it's a good use of time. This woman was doing an advanced move. Which is where you climb out while holding the trash in one of your hands. But, it was a sizeable trash in for a moment. I couldn't see what it was. And then it was kind of like. My eyes did a focusing take like. We won't like in and out with the Camera Lens like is that what I think it is? And what she was lifting as she was climbing out of her car to go pump her gas. Was the bottom part of a clam shell packaging. The plastic clam shell packaging, but only the bottom part, and in it was half a rotisserie chicken carcass. I like significant meat on the bone. No Lid. So she had to hold it waiter style as she climbed out. Just just much, but not most of a rotisserie chicken Wow, telling me is that this woman is? This woman is living my dream of being able to drive I'll just tearing chicken meat off of a chicken, carcass and stuffing in my mouth while I drive I presume. She had like a dashboard mount for it. She must because it's not gonNA fit on if it's on top of cupholder, it's GonNa slide right off the first time. You have to peel out to get away from some bikers that are mad at you. What Elliott Elliott Elliott the the first rule of chicken in the car is the color. That's where you're putting your sides. We're putting your Coleslaw. Baked Beans Potato Salad. Salad will eat with your hands because you can't have a fork in a car. That's crazy or sports, even but that you'd have to have some sort of trae the dashboard, and then you'd have to what secure it with clips of some kind like carrier, or you know like like a baby changing I. Imagine this website. It's like a one of those fold down baby changing tables in a public bathroom. That's on her. Her Dashboard but it's the length of a child, but of a chicken plus container rand. She can just kind of hook the chicken belt. The chicken in that's probably the she didn't eat was where the was where the belt was over. And because you don't Wanna eat the belt me, that's gross. The bulk of course you can detach from the car laundrette shirts. It gets pretty greasy, but and that she would just. Steer with one hand and just grabbed the pull the chicken with the other. Because you don't want to get the chicken grease on your understand wheel because again how you're GonNa? See a real fast, so you can get away from those bikers who are so mad at you if the wheel is slipping through your hands, because it's so covered in Cheickna. Wait been bikers this whole time that I get that part of the story. I mentioned the most before, but okay. Sorry. Sorry. I need experience. It's a common experience that bikers get Matt Hey. Hey, what do you? What do you think you're doing dude? And then if something escalates the part where you have to peel out and get out of there fast, you Scott you scuffed. Harley, they'll say exactly my. Hog Bikers aren't afraid to use rough language. Like what are you doing, dude? And the, and the only still of course, the only strong point is that with the bikers behind you that someone between you and the federal agents who are already chasing you and the alien. It's in your backseat. It's the alien in the backseat who of course inadvertently insulted the bikers while trying to befriend them? And that's why you gotta get out of there fast because you already again have an extraterrestrial life form, who though cute, does not understand human mores and. And is just pissing off. Bikers left and right, but at the same time you've got this chicken on the dash that you just just from at will and I guess that's certainly if I'm driving. I'm not going to be able to to D- meat chicken the way that I can when I'm sitting at a table, which is what I call a table that's not in a car and just sits there and doesn't move This is a mobile table car. I'm not going to be able to like again. Really go at it with the because you guys I think have both seen me eat chicken. You know that I just demolish it and it's just like you know heathcliff. Ever be able to introduce our legislation. Elliott! Filibuster till his throat is sore. Which reminds me of a story one of my constituents still. then. Stabbed, he's dabbing his forehead with a handkerchief that means he's going to be added for another four hours. You'll you don't know? Is that I wore a diaper to the session today, so I can go on? Is Anybody here? So anyway, wait. Your other character congressional baby. Now. That's the thing congressional secret is. He's always wearing a diaper. I'm of are sewing. His he has to secrets always wearing a diaper so I can always filibuster, and also I've been accepting a wad of money from a certain chemical company that. Tax Breaks for. Fast tracking a few regulation permissions for them to build plants next to school. Toward. But so did you guys have something else who I will just finish? All right fair I thought that was I thought you saw this woman carrying a chicken and that was. That was the full dote. No, so I will I will say that the that the I think the cinema of our childhood, the TV and Cinema. Childhood really really misrepresented. How often you're GONNA run into a biker gang. Since in my life, I think it's been zero times. No, that's not true well. How would you explain run in witnessing? Would that count or just like you know just like running afoul like having to avoid them? Yeah I just thought that was just like the main problem with adulthood. biker gangs and quicksands. Two things rarely ever see out there anyway to say nothing of rodents of unusual size. So I went into the I went into the article.
Phil - Growing up gay in South Africa
"It can tell from Phil now. He grew up in South Africa where he knew from a very early age that he was gay, and he got bullied for it from the age of eight I think I always knew from a young age, but for me it was different levels of awareness so when I was really young I found myself getting those butterflies in that shy feeling by looking at old is so you know when you see little schoolgirls and they all shy when they see their friends older brothers Zoll. Things like that! That's how I felt and it felt. Different to looking at my other male straight friends, who would get the same feelings for girls? So I had the awareness that they was a difference there I was getting that feeling by looking at guys, but they were getting that feeling looking at girls, and what's certain Cevennes near young mind that there was anything wrong with that, or did you just sort of acknowledging and and run with it I think as I got older Changed the way I. I thought because the majority of the people I was hanging around with were attracted to the opposite sex so I then thought okay. There must be something wrong with me because I didn't know anybody else. Who has in the same situation as me? Let's put this in a setting. Then how old were you? Where were you growing up? I think the awareness really started when I was four five and I grew up in South Africa. That's young, isn't it? Yeah, well I mean the thing is i. that's why I had different levels of awareness as about myself as I was growing up. So I mean yes, I had like kiss catch with girls, but then I had the feeling. Oh, I want to play catch with boys. You Know I. think that would be a little bit more exciting. And then I got a little bit older and. It was. Should I be having these feelings and I think you are actually the first person on the podcast from South Africa. Yes, so I don't really have much of a sense of what it's like growing up being gay part the Elliott Bay Community in South Africa what what was it like south? Africa I find is a little bit more. Conservative than here in the UK. And at that time it was quite homophobic. Very traditional men do this woman do this. That really affected me and I found it quite difficult. There were slows thrown about about being gay I can remember being a kid, and for those the listeners who have some experience in South Africa the word was more fee, which was fag basically and Offie Molefi. So. I was called that a lot I didn't even know what it meant. My mom tells me about the story. When I was young, I must've been eight or nine, and and I would go to my mom in our say mom, how do gay guys? And she said to me I know Philip. How do gay guys walk and I said I don't know, but the people at school are are teasing me because they say that I'm gay because I walk in a certain way and I didn't even have a label for it, but it was really really hard, even for my mom and Dad. They never really had any experience in lgbtq stuff and they've learned a lot through me. Yeah. It's a similar story with a lot of people are told to. Kind of like a lot of parents learn as they go on, which is why sometimes their first reaction isn't always the best one because they literally done what to say, they have gotten a reference point. They haven't met any other LGBT people until that child comes out. This is what it was like with my mom and dad because they grew up in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. and. It was a lot more conservative than over in the UK, so they didn't have a reference. They didn't have any friends and relatives that were comfortable in coming out and saying who they really

How did that life prepare you for this life You know I actually got started with acting when In so many ways win I used to do my Brady hoke impression in front of the football team he needs. Let's hear just a little piece of it We got the sklar brothers here. Ear Duo Born in Saint Louis raised at Rick's in Ann. Arbor team. Too Damn good men. I can and tell you that I can. I can tell you that people probably loved it. Oh Yeah just shit on your coach. Great way in a interesting. Yeah Yeah rose someone that you don't love yes. Oh yeah absolutely love. It used to be a lot of heat by the way Brady. Hoke is a lot of heat for his tenure there. Nobody Played Ohio state tougher. Yeah he's the last guy to win eleven games and he's very you know he he. He was a guy that took the rivalry very serious. And I'm not you know car-bomb sure does too but You know he definitely took it very seriously and I. I loved him as a coach. But everybody had a Ho compression in the locker room and then she was used to make up bits because he talked a lot about food and he he would be serious. He'd be in team meetings and he. What do you think you know know skin? Yeah yeah he would just be like the winners. Get steaks rib is cooked medium. Well the way I like uh-huh losers get franken beans talking to you Miller Spring Game. Okay and he would be serious though talking to you. Know Miller likes those little those little wiener dogs wrapped in the croissant. And you know what I'm talking about it'd be it'd be looking around going. What ever say that even talking about these things it is kinda funny but he was like you know? It was tied in with the series message but he hilarious so everybody would have an impression. And then we'd get team meetings we had a meeting at eight. AM you're there. Whatever their forty five or seven up? You're if you're not there by seven forty your phone getting blown up wearing. You're waiting for him to be there. You walk up to the podium and just start start doing. Yeah it'd be eight o'clock and it'd be eight. Oh two and he's still not in the team would start Ellie Ellie and I'd be at first. I was kind of like a shoe but then I was like screw it you know. He's not that in here. I'd run up to the podium and I'd say I'd have. I'd have something that safe and made up. I'd call out Denard Junior Hemingway a few guys and be making fun of them. Then I go sit down and word got around to hoc. After a few times then he would come in sometimes stare. Look around Elliott. You're up and then I started doing different coaches. I was trying to come out with a left Hook and they think I'm doing hope now I'm going to do a strength coach and so that was where I kind of you know. I never really did borrow us. It was just like He. He's real crazy crazy. You know grass down on the ground get stretched. Let's go a lot. It's funny you're you're you're tapping into well so what that does is it opens up. You're tapping into okay. What are the characteristics about this person that makes this person this person our friend? We have good a friend. Who's been on this podcast many times the batting stance Guy Garenne Esi anyone's bags as unbelievable?

The Way Stan museums back gets gets are a little bit is. He's it's unbelievable what he picks on. Yeah and it shows a true understanding and certainly a true love of the person. But that's what you're acting is if you're like okay so I just got this audition. It's this guy who is this guy. Well he's he's this type of a person and you kind of get a little bit of the break down through the I I. It was on the offensive line with another guy. Who is this guy? I'm just GONNA walk in there and do this guy. Is your impression my friend and that's who I'm going to be in this guy. It's funny I recently. We had one there. An audition Month or so ago and it was more or less it was like big intimidating. Football guy. Real real over the top and I'm like okay. I know like fifty these guys so I just didn't impression of that and they're like that was great but we need Can you kick a football. I go kick a football. You want the intimidating to kick.

There's always a need for like a big dude if you can if you can be funny if you can take that intimidating and twist a little bit you've got your in a huge chance to To make money doing what you do out here. Let's get in some quick. It's and talk about some things happen. I'm not sure if you saw this but The forty niners radio uh-huh broadcast. I WANNA know WHO's Tim Ryan. I guess yeah they suspended Tim Ryan which by the way that may be your super bowl this year by the way is a Redo. Do of Harbaugh Harbaugh you know. Hopefully the lights. Don't go out but you know what I mean. It's like it could be a Redo of that which was one of the most interesting superbowls ever Oh yeah those too but I think those teams and they played against each I that is a great that would be a fantastic and for the forty niners to come from where they came. Yeah yeah that would be incredible. So be so Tim Ryan I guess. Prices Vary Area Sports. Talk Radio show up on Monday after the Ravens game. He said Ed Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. This is raises troubling. He said his skin is so dark. Star shut shut the fuck up talking right now. And it's so dark. That his his rob read option. Handoff is harder to detect whether or not Jose and and the ball are closer to what the way even. If that's the case don't say don't say it you don't need like you don't need to point that out. There's the quote he's he's really good at the fake Lamar Jackson but when you consider his dark skin color with dark football with the dark uniform you could not see that thing. You said that on a radio show. Try that on on your on your buddy try that out on your wife which is why you should always have like one person in your circle. We've always said this is about athletes. Athletes should always higher. If you're GONNA hire a posse and having people go wrong have one no man. Yeah who. Hey Man I'm GonNa go about saying Lamar Jackson is really good at the read option because because the skin is dark. No don't do it. Nope this is why the game was no. He didn't say this during the game. They're saying he said this on a Monday token barry so it wasn't in the moment she said I regret my choice of words in trying to describe the conditions of the game. That's what you were. We're trying to do what you were trying to describe the Jackson's MVP Calorie player. I respect him greatly. I would've sincerely apologize to him and everyone else I find. I like that solid apology out of house. However however you're in San Francisco also that's a town that's look like yes? When you get into the world of sports people turn born into a caveman and they go back some old weird thing where it's tribal and you know like truthfully in this day and age in this moment in media is your your job to be a sport if you're white value in anything today in any media today and you start to say I think this guy has an advanced the style talking not not smart? Not Kidding Right I don't know if you've seen this. Have you ever seen a Russian. He's rushing Russian. I think it is rushing face slapping. Have you seen yes. Yes I recently saw. I didn't know it was Russian but I saw a world face slapping champion that just face slapping and and again. Now you've been in the trenches. Okay you've been in the trenches with other guys. What are the tricks like? The inner tricks like people get punched in the nuts all the time right haunch grabbed Interpol lock arms with a guy. It's intimate yeah you know and it is very hot. It's a little well. I don't know if I'd go that far but it is very little little Like you know you're I guess you're caveman instincts. Because when it's happening opening I mean you're doing anything to get this guy block and I will say I've never. I don't think I've ever been intentionally hitting the balls but I used to have my senior this beard. That was super remember. That and I remember member.

"Unreal. I don't know how got you know who this Patrick Carney show the guy. The drummer from The Black Keys. I love his show all right so he's got a show called a serious boredom on Sirius. Xm You and he played his favorite saucer. Two Thousand Fifteen this year. Excuse me two thousand nineteen and he played a song off this album from Andrew Bird and I took a deep dive in this album Toni. It's maybe one of the best albums I've ever heard unreal. This is proxy war off that album. The albums called my finest work Kiet agree with that. So Hey listen to the music episode. That's GONNA be coming up at a couple of weeks on this. Due at end of the music show with Joan Array jail logic matt price and we go over our favorites the year. Because that's part of the show to we like to introduce you music. It is a blast. Such a great holiday thing. It'll be dropping so enjoy that that's coming up soon on the show. Today we take a deep dive into college football as we talked to Elliott Mueller and pro football a little bit too Elliot Miller who played for the university. Yes in Michigan played from the New Orleans Saints. He was offensive lineman center Any talks a little bit about what it was like to be on the inside of the football machine that is big big time college football and pro football the differences between both and he touches on subjects that are very relevant right now in the world of football and in fact later on the show. We'll we'll have Jerry Jones who's getting hot and heavy and get a call in talk sports. Talk Radio Show and the guy you heard it. He questioned him a little bit guy said. Aren't you embarrassed embarrassed. Then Jerry Jones said get a hold of check yourself. I mean he went after Jerry Jones. we'll talk to him later in the show and find out why he's flying off the handle so much but first we're staying the world of the NFL you know what's been interesting week for the NFL. Developing story right now as we speak. Elliot Miller told us this that Roger Goodell is saying look. It's over for capper nick which is interesting because it's like can you say that this isn't that colluding you saying. Hey we gave them a chance to speak for everybody. Yeah what feels like if Miami suddenly needs a quarterback because they kinda do. You're not going to allow Miami to just pick this guy up. It feels like collusion to me. Why don't you let the free market determine in what the free market determines Roger Goodell and not actually tell people what they should or shouldn't do and it's interesting because when you think about the kind game cabinet played randy this becomes becomes relevant to our top take is changing of the garden? You know terms of offensive systems in that way the office of systems used to be. You'd see a guy who like a guy who played with Elliot Miller who he blocked for Denard Robinson who Denard Robinson was was unbelievable burner A. K.. Ran like crazy made some great passes to rape passes to but even when he was in college. You said yourself style quarterback immediately. You're like he's GonNa have to be a receiver suit against the NFL. That's what people were saying about Lamar Jackson from Louisville. And look what he's gone on to do this year. Look what to Shawn Watson. Decide to Shawn Watson who basically basically did the impossible in college which was believed when Alabama was at its height for Clemson. You said that guy's a winner came arm in the world old but he has actually has a great arm and the truth. Matter is what's happening now is you're seeing pro coaches in. NFL coaches redesigning redesigning their arthritis games around the talents of their quarterback other than taking quarterbacks and having them change what they do to fit the system that they have. And what it's doing as we see. Almost you know for years. The argument was okay. Yeah that's fine. Those guys a win they can win seven eight nine games. Russell Wilson was sort of an out of the box guy won a super an outlier. He was an outlier and everyone was like well. This the best is still Tom. Brady Tom Brady putting those guys head to head. No you put those guys head to head with Tom. Brady MPM and Tom Brady can't beat them. So it's all nice and good against everybody else in lesser competition. Those guys are gonNA run wild all over them but when you put them up against the goat Tom. Brady's GONNA show you why a drop straight dropback passer can pick apart a defense dinkum. Dunkin hit long passes. Input doesn't get himself knows how to move around within the pocket. It doesn't have to leave the pocket that guy's going to beat a scrambling looking. He's once he wants six superbowls but he's going to beat him every single time. What's happening this year though? What are their three losses laws to Tall Tumour Baltimore and Lamar Jackson? Lost to Shawn Watson Houston and I lost a Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City. Patrick mahomes leans a little more towards just a pocket passer but still sure but he has the ability ability to get outside the pocket and make throws on the run in no look throws and the guy's just a freak of an Avenue I. It's a Shawn Watson. Half the season rushing arts. I I'll look it up but I can tell you that Lamar Jackson has over one thousand rushing yards this season as a quarterback over one thousand rushing yards and he just shattered in. It's about to shed continue with more games. Let's jeter Michael Vick's record. He's got three more games left. He could have thirteen hundred yards. There's no question and if you watch Baltimore play you say to yourself there. The defenses that they're playing playing against half to account for Lamar Jackson taking off and running our Lamar Jackson doing a read option and those plays working college. I think it's so funny. People think. Oh they're not going to work in the pros. They do put pressure on the linebackers to make a decision to make a read. And if the quarterback reads what the other guys reading and does something different there's the vacated space and if this guy is fast and crafty and now there are more rules protecting quarterbacks on how you can hit them. I think this is an important detail. Ran The rules around the NFL about hitting an exposed quarterback if he goes into a slide. You can't touch them. That's right so those shots protected in a way that Robert Griffin the third wasn't pretending they're protected in a way that that Harold Harold Comic Cunningham Randall Cunningham Antwan Randall l who was forced to be a wide receiver. That's right these guys who were scrambling quarterbacks who were run first guys weren't protected in the same way that the current quarterback protected detected. And now there's an opportunity for those guys to run not get their heads knocked off and survive and live to run another day. So the game has changed. quarterbacks who have different skill sets are now being more successful. So the question. I'm going to pose to you randy and I want to hear your opinion. I have my opinion. Is this the beginning of the the end for the Tom. Brady quarterback will. This may be going to be the beginning of the end for Tom Brady. Because he's over forty five million. He's but they want us to savor and he's got no receivers but they won the Super Super Bowl last year. CD's say to yourself all right. They could do it again. But I think this provides Tom Brady with the thing that he wanted for every year that he he wants us against them. People were saying we can't beat people are saying we can't beat this type of guy so this type of thing that motivates him a question is can he beat them can Lamar Jackson when the the time is right when the chips are down now he may have that playoff game at home he may not. It's not like he saw like they're fourteen and no right. You know what I'm saying. But he may have that playoff game home. If that playoff game is in Baltimore with Baltimore's defense and the running game with Mark Ingram you have to think that this might might be the future You might see this dual threat quarterback we could be watching a combination of more guys with better skills and protection of quarterback order back coming through. We could possibly be seeing the past time. The changing of the guard. Three Amalgam of circumstances bringing us to a a new type of NFL quarterback drew. BREES is of the world the Tom Brady's the world still successful. The twilight of their careers right. So the next batch the next crew of quarterbacks even if you look at a guy like Joe Borough who comes out to Lsu that guy's a pure passer but when he he needs to get on his horse and get out of there and take off and run. I put more in like the Aaron Rodgers category but still that might be the most like statuesque type quarterback that we Z.. Moving forward in the future and the leaks changing. I think it's good for football if you ask me. I think that's actually a good thing for the game. Football to watch as Elliot Miller. We already talked to him so recorded that interview before doing this as he as he explains is when you have an athlete as a quarterback who can move around and run suddenly it puts everybody on their heels and you gotta count for that guy as he makes his way through and that's exciting. It's more exciting. It's more exciting and I do think this might be the beginning of the end for Tom. Brady not saying they won't make the playoffs. NOT SAYING THEY WON'T WIN Games and not saying a guy who's been there can never account for experience not saying that that guy doesn't take what he does in terms of you know how he how he handles the moment in the pressure of that moment not saying he can't do that and rise to the challenge and get to the Super Bowl and win the super bowl for a record seventh time. But I'm telling you this may be the last year that he does it and it's fascinating to see and I actually think it's it's good for the game so We'll see how that goes. Elliot Mueller on the other side of this break Jerry Jones coming up later very upset Jerry Jones fiery at this point. This is dream for dreaming Patrick Watson do we hope to see you guys at flappers this Sunday in Burbank. We're doing stand up with everybody.

"That's in a nutshell. There's more to it right but that's it. These innovations will create more jobs and more opportunities for those looking be one of the people that's looking for it. It will create more jobs ops and the third point is the biggest that i want to touch on. I mentioned a minute ago but i want to go into a little more this. The the third one is this. It's going to the new updates the new technology between now and twenty thirty which is when it's really going to spike as my prediction. It's going to given excellent opportunity to change how we as people teach and educate our children and the students of our of our nation's right. I'm i'm talking specifically about the united states. When i say our nation that's where i live but could be any and all nations of course okay and i say that because this the simple fact his students come out of twelve years of public school having learned what exactly has a big loss there right on on purpose because i really there's not i mean you struggle to tell me what they've come up with in twelve years all right. It doesn't work anymore and the way the way it's presently constituted public school twelve years. The whole bit doesn't work it just doesn't and we're seeing that because we're seeing people pushing pushing to move up the minimum wage to extraordinary height right all that says to anyone that looks at it and knows what they're looking at says is people coming out of high school men and women coming out of high school young young men and women they they they don't own have the value they don't they haven't learned enough to bring any value to the market so we have to therefore artificially changed that with government legislation nation and ray and regulations so without getting into all that there's a huge opportunity to grow to change and to evolve and most importantly improve our education the system and we're seeing that now so many people so many roles as these statistics claim to be replaced by algorithms machines and artificial intelligence agents. What is that scream. It's screams. One thing we have to improve the way we educate and teach our young people period we have to. There's no reason to continually go over things in in elementary school to go over subtraction for four four five years. Kids need the absolute the basics of math science and all social studies language arts. They have to know how to read right right after that they can pick that up pretty quickly so the way we approach it. We have to spend less time on twelve years of basics and more time on how to approach how to live and how to excel in the real world not just you made it. You're alive. You're eighteen go after for it so many of these children unless they're unless they're taught at home by their parents were just ideal taught as they're going through public school unless they're taught what to expect and getting ready to go out by the time these kids had eighteen and they go to school. They started job. Whatever their path is there wholly wholly unprepared the average wholly unprepared so as the complexity of the world has increased and i'm sure we'd all agree it has so do the challenges we face so we can't sit on education from hundred so years ago the same model oh and expect that education to take us into the heart and the end of the twentieth century it's insane. It makes no sense sense so the biggest opportunity is our as how we teach and educate but the biggest thing i want you to take from from this and the way we're listening and learning are hearing from the media media about the coming a._i. Revolution and the the disruption disruption one word in it's it's opportunity. That's what you have in front out of you. You're if you're someone who you think your job is going to be moved into taken over by some robotics or artificial intelligence. It's very unlikely that it's going to happen tomorrow. Okay you have time for these things. That's why always saying so. Many of these podcasts are probably sick of hearing me say you gotta be searching. You got to be looking. You have to be always searching searching for something searching for the next the next bit of information formation searching for the next great book searching for your next great project looking looking looking so we can get ahead of these things simply by hearing hearing hearing what's being said seeing where things are going and then say hey. I'm going to need to upgrade my skill set. I'm going to need to get better what i'm doing now. It might be automated. Aided in a couple of years you have time is what i'm saying. There are great challenges guys in the world today as we know look at the news look at your neighborhood first and foremost right not the news. I should say look at your neighborhood. Look at your people in your community. Look at your city. Look at your state huge judge opportunity there to do what to improve to help people to help your community to help your school in your area to help the young people in your area to to lend a helping hand huge opportunity there. Those opportunities will grow and grow exponentially in the coming years. The world moves. It's like it's never moved before the speed is breakneck and we as a people of the united states we as a people the world all of us we need people we need leaders ready to step in and help those and give a helping hand so no matter where you are now no matter what you're doing but i really could care less will. I'm just working at <hes> at this basic boring job. If that's who you are that's what you're thinking could care less this aged. You can move from that to running something running a business running your own company director of this working on that writing a book starting this this starting a podcast putting together a movie name something it's possible so if you're the person in in in the small thinking being of yesteryear. You need to not be that person. You need to go and step up into who you're meant to be. Which is the question. I would ask if you still have if you're still wondering say what's possible for me. What am i capable of if i really really wanted to do this if i really gave my ninety five hundred and five percent in that range what could i get done. What could i be what could i do. What can i give to others if i was that person if i was at my hundred percent will could i give back. That's where you have to be. Let's in the coming years in the coming coming decades as a people of this world. Let's not be reactive anymore. Okay let's not wait for. Some of this is happening and then that's that's. That's not gonna work out. Get ahead of the curve. Get out in front of it. Try new things experiment fail succeed. It's always going to work for you if you go. Oh about it that way so with that to you to your family and to the world may you be blessed <music>.

"There are people in every time in every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future mistrust the present and invoke the security of a comfortable past which in fact never existed robert kennedy the more and more. I hear the mainstream narrative convinced were looking at artificial show intelligence automation in the future the wrong way. There's a lot of misconceptions and there's a lot of fear thrown at us every single day in the news about automation automation and artificial intelligence so that's what i want to talk about today getting our minds around this looking at it from a different perspective a different frame and and how you can approach it no matter your role no matter your job no matter your company no matter what you do so the narrative that's in the mainstream stream media. That's in the media played out constantly constantly and here's what it is. Here's what it is in a nutshell. It's this all of the new technologies will take everyone's everyone's jobs and then what will we do and then they paint a picture of whatever they want you to believe needs to be done after all. The jobs are taken away by computers suitors and robots and whatever they're coming with the k. New disruptive and innovative technologies must always be we looked at from at least this one angle and that is what is the possible opportunity that comes with this technology. There's other angles and they can be incorporated and we can always look through those but we have to always include the angle of what are the possible opportuni opportunities. Excuse me what are the possible opportunities because without that we're going to fall into pessimism. We're going to fall into fear mongering and that's the easiest thing in the world to do in any aspect of our lives so let's not do that. Let's look at the possible opportunities <unk> -tunities okay so i was reading a was doing some research on wanting to talk on this talk wanting to get this pod <hes> out to you guys and and i read through one article stood out to me. It was a brookings <hes> article from two thousand eighteen so what's not to some of the statistics and i wanted to the site some of those. I'll read some of those two. There's a two or three that i want to go over and we'll chat about and i'll link to the article in the show notes so you can check it out there. If you'd like so this again in two thousand eighteen brookings and let me <hes> let me go over those within our read some of this directly to you so <hes> so a pew research coach center study asked one thousand eight hundred ninety six experts about the impact of emerging technologies and found quote half half of these experts forty eight percent envision a future in which robots in digital agents will have displaced significant numbers of both blue and white collar workers with many experiencing concern that this will lead to vast increases in income equality masses of people who are affected effectively unemployable and breakdowns in the social order okay so one quote. They're continuing the article in the wall. Then i'll check on some of this these fears have been echoed by detailed analyses showing anywhere from fourteen to fifty four percent automation impact on jobs for example. The bruegel analysis found that fifty that quote fifty fifty four percent of e u jobs are at risk of computerization using european data. They argue that job. Losses are likely to be significant and people should prepare for large large scale disruption last one of the last ones. I want to read before chat about this. Meanwhile from the article oxford furred university researchers carl frei and michael osborne claim that technology were transform many sectors of life. They studied seven hundred and two occupational groupings things and found that forty seven percent of u._s. Workers have a high probability of seeing their jobs automated over the next twenty years. Is that true it's possible again. Keep in mind how this started. When i read the part of the pretty short article it started as they interviewed experts. It's in this is their thoughts okay. They researched. They got some data. This is our thoughts on the data so keep that in mind okay. It's all predictions. It's all it's all estimates okay. We've got some experts together. This is what they said. Take it with a grain of salt. Take it with two grains of salt. The last the last quote a mckinsey global institute analysis of seven hundred fifty jobs concluded that forty five percent of paid activities could be automated using currently demonstrated technologies and sixty percent santa vac-vacation occupations could have thirty percent or more of their processes automated k. john in another quote jobs lost cost jobs gained found that thirty percent of work activities could be automated by twenty thirty and up to three hundred seventy five million workers worldwide could be affected by emerging technologies possible possible possible now. Let's look at this. Let's let's stop the article here and talk about disruptive technologies guys since human beings were inventing things have existed. There's been technologies that changed significantly quickly vastly the way we work the way we think about things things the way we approach our everyday life business work anything. It's always been done. Let me give you three just three big ones that that aren't even looked dan in as they're looked at as an everyday part of our lives now but we're disruptive technology disruptive inventions in their time time number one rail okay rail change the united states it changed how we operate how we travel it gave access to people on the west coast to people on the east coast and allowed people from the south to travel to the north and vice versa it connected our whole country and it did that for most of the most of the the world when they got rail airlines commercial airlines okay that again travel it changed travel changed the way we travel it changed. How people could live people would always wiz live children would grow up they move out. They move down the street. They'd move a little bit up to the town over a mile to ten miles away. That's it it changed being able to move from the middle of the country colorado. Let's say and then that child wouldn't can now move to florida because they could travel. Their parents could travel within a couple a two to three hours to visit them so that's just one tiny example. I know but that's extremely disruptive. That changes how how much people are gonna use the rail. When air air came that changes how much people are going to drive because we don't need to drive we can just fly down to florida for example extremely disruptive. A lot of people lost a lot of jobs there all right and we'll go over how to look this but just keep in mind in the last one. I'll just briefly touch on the internet. The internet it seems has always existed to us most of some of you. You were most of you listening. It's always been there. It's not the case obviously but that's a huge disruption and we're still seeing the disruptions that have come with the internet. The new technology companies the financial financial technology companies. The amazon effect is still going right. We're still seeing that so. Here's what i'm getting to. Here's the crux of what i want you to take away from the fear all right. Let's set it aside and talk about the reality and how to best approach this no matter who you are. There's an incredible opportunity. In this fast paced world. We live in a fast paced an understatement at this point. It's light speed anymore. It's light speed so there's a huge huge opportunity for individuals and businesses alike like but you have to know what to look for and you have to look at it the right way approach the right way so i want to leave. You and i want you to think about three things. When you hear the a i the fearmongering okay not that there won't be challenges. I'm not trying to understate then not that. There won't be things that some will try to approach and do incorrectly. That's that's always the case but the best way for you in the way to look at it number. One that comes to my mind is number one opportunity for the workforce to improve proved their skill sets listen if your job is going to be automated or is disrupted by this technology. That's a huge signal to do what step up your skill set improve your skill set because in the market it's telling you you now want to make yourself more valuable. There's going to to be a a robot a machine a program in algorithm soon. That's going to take your job. That is a huge signal guys now that you if you're one of these these people and that's that's okay is to go and self educate yourself right go and get new classes going learn a new skill. I'm not saying go back to a four year degree or go. Pick up that masters you're waiting on. You could surely do that but that's really not what i'm saying. I'm saying update those skills. Maybe you need to brush up on your public speaking speaking. Maybe that's going to help. You get promoted to something else. Maybe you need to get into coding all right. Maybe that's something that's gonna help. Machine learning is now at the very beginning of its opportunity. People are looking for people who know anything about machine learning so there's thousands i could list them of opportunities for you to grow oh improve your skill set and be stronger stronger opportunity for you on the market okay number two way to look at this and another two number. Two opportunity is new technology always creates new jobs. Okay always we always forget that when when you hear the fear it's only one thing all these jobs are gonna be we lost. That's it all these jobs. No that's not the case often times. More jobs created than jobs lost. There's going to be jobs that are going to be created that never existed before when more and more automation comes in. There's going to be new roles new jobs new opportunities for anyone one that wants them anyone that can come up with them. They're out there and they will. They will come so it isn't just a loss to the economy. Every time powerful positive innovative technologies hit it has been a benefit it has grown to be to gain and create more wealth off okay one of the big fallacies. There's a limited numbers of limited number of jobs and on top of that a big fallacy just to go on tangent is there's a limited the number of wealth. There's just this much wealth and these people have a lot of it and we don't have a lot of it and i know that anyone that talks like that. No zero about about economics and how and how money works wealth is something that is created. Okay wealth is created by innovation by talent and by serving people and giving them a product or service that they want therefore creating and partying with their dollars..

"That will probably likely will most likely come after some financial crisis in the world scene where they will see. It's too unwieldy. They'll pare down to ten to twelve and that will allow them to to the unite and be stronger in that in that arena a currently one of the going into the weaknesses still it follows u s geopolitical political strategy so that is a weakness because it's unable to chart its own course it doesn't have independence and that way that is also changing so germany especially ashley has been the lead the lead. I don't know if i'd say instigator but the leader in moving europe slowly but surely away from following u._s. Geopolitical strategy and policy last last but not least europe has no <unk> as i mentioned no strong leadership they currently guys have three presidents in the european union okay so they have three different presidents all have different roles goals. It's not unified on that front so that is a huge weakness. If you look at russia china iran they all have central figures and thorin leaders not that you have to have that but that is that is something europe will need and they will get a strong leader in the future that will bring them together strongly so going into the stuff for you so i go over that i number one white over that at all with with all view number one. It's important to understand understand to know a little bit about geopolitics no matter what you do. I don't care what type of business you're in what your job is and it doesn't matter studying geopolitics helps. You helps to helps the way shape your mind as far as how you think you have to. You have to get into a country's history. You have to analyze world trends and see where things are going and how that helps is. It helps you to be a better business. Thinker help should be a better leader helps. It'd be a better parent because your mind mind is taking in ninety one hundred twenty two two hundred points of data and figuring out what's next why it's happening and where to go from there super important and also those who want to know what's happening in your world wide happening and what's likely to happen next this helps you do that so that's important for for all of you. Leaders out there and all of your business people in everyone listening no matter who you are. That's why i'm going into this so for you potential areas of change. This is really what i'm leading with with all are trying to get to with all of this. I'm going to go into three number. One governance style. We're seeing in across the nation not just in these areas. The type of governance is changing drastically. We're seeing the world move away from liberal democracies and a so much of the world is moving towards authoritarian regime. Mm strongmen strong leader regimes okay. We're seeing across africa. We're seeing it across asia everywhere okay so are you seeing more dictators more more those types of rules across the world whether to china russia turkey venezuela name an an african nation most of them have a prime minister or president that rules as a king essentially so the government style is changing and that has a lot to do guys is with the rising powers china is leading that charge and demonstrating the one man rule theory as as has russia since since one thousand nine hundred nine nine with vladimir putin so we're seeing that a lot okay now one of the one of the symptoms are one of the results of this style of if government were versus authoritarian versus freedom freedom styles of government. Is we see something like brexit. Europe doesn't have a strong leaders. I mentioned a single authority but you're the european union is very very authoritarian in its rules its regulations in all of its bureaucracies and it does not allow those nation-states in states right. It doesn't allow the france the francis of the world the great britain's italy's in all the member states to chart their own course when it comes to economic policy. Let's see <hes> when it comes to fiscal responsibility immigration so you see from that is the people of britain have spoken and said we want to charter own course and we wanna charted it from westminster. We want to determine our future so you're going to see a lot more across the globe guys move towards the authoritarian model. It's it's it's happening. That's the trend of the twenty first century so far cain. Everyone said it would never happen in the eighties and the nineties after the soviet union fell that liberal liberal democracy th liberal democracies with future the united states great britain with <hes> with <hes> essential liberal democracy australia and many many the other key everyone in germany. Everyone had a liberal democracy at second seemed like so. That's one trend you have to look at those are potential. That's a big area of change. The the second is the financial system the world the global financial system as it's presently constituted is set to change from a u._s. dollar lead to something else whether it's many currencies competing whether it's a basket of currencies whether it's gold lead financial system. Something's going to change there in the next five to seven years. Keep an eye on that and you're also now why. Why would i say them so. We're seeing seeing russia more seeing china. We're seeing a lot of nations besides that a lot of eastern european nations hoarding and buying gold in the tons they're buying and buying and buying gold. Why does that matter it means there have they don't have confidence anymore in the dollar as a reserve currency before award this happened in the beginning of two thousand these countries russia china everyone really would hold millions and millions and millions billions of dollars in excuse me in u._s. Dollars and that would be their their holder of wealth and value their starting to dump their dollars and buy tons of gold so keep an eye on that that as a as a huge area of change in the world and the last thing i'll mention which has to do with point one is the internet we're seeing a lot of changes and a lot of experimentation with governments across the globe with the internet cutting the internet which is in my mind one of the scariest the scary things that can possibly happen and we really need to see a focus from all citizens of any nation to to push against this. We're seeing a lot of you know what i call or what you've heard. Maybe a kill switch. Governments who are instituting authoritarian moves cracking down on protests taking people killing protesters attacking attacking citizens. They're cutting off the internet so that their citizens can't use their cell cell phones. They can't get on the internet and send it on twin. Send these videos notes and tax on twitter through their mobile devices. They're just cutting the internet off and and that is going to go along with the authoritarian style which china is trying to perfect which is this ultimate surveillance state. The state knows everything and you are always and forever going to be watched so we're really going to see a battle for the freedom of the internet and whether it's going to be a freedom led style k. a u._s. Led style which there's still work to be done there. Don't get me wrong a freedom internet where people are able to do as they feel make money on the internet and be free insecure or more of a chinese lead internet which is a topic for another other day to get into but where things will be censored things will be pulled out of your browser certain things you can and cannot see new cycles be curated. It's really a nightmare to be honest and that's that's. We're seeing russia them. Give you some examples quickly. Russia's creating has created an intranet so if if the rest of the world were to shut down the internet russia would have its own internally just within russia okay or or another way to look at russia could just cut themselves off from the world's internet if if the government didn't want those citizens in russia to see anything could just turn off the internet and and just have the russia intranet. K china has a great. I'm sure you've all heard china's great firewall which essentially at its everything eh censors everything that goes into china's internet okay so the only allow what they the government wants to their citizens to see again being in america extremely scary okay and again more internet shutdowns another example more internet shutdowns and all across africa from authoritarian regime. So what did these changes made for. You all list a couple. We'll we'll wrap this up so for you as as whatever you do wherever you are as the world goes from being so globalised to being regionalized it's going to affect a couple things come to mind travel number one the cost of travel the the ease of travel the passports where they go and how they work as there's more conflicts between nations and groups of nations. It'll be increasingly challenging challenging. If you're if you're traveling to one of those nations that your country is in conflict with depending on how great the conflict it can be near impossible astle or will be very hard and and or suspicious okay. It's just the way it's going to be. This is the way governments operate since time immemorial. You have have to look out for this. I'm be prepared so wait a way to prepare for that is obviously having multiple passports. If possible for you something to think about another thing that will change as things become more regionalized is consumer prices. Consumer goods will likely not all of them but will likely go up in price because you're going to see as we've already seen with the the u._s. And china tariff wars okay so they're beginning to to see each other as a u._s. Is beginning to see china's more of a true rival so we're seeing a way to kind of throw throw a wet blanket on china in a way so we're seeing tariffs which will just affect their regular. Everyday people consumer consumer goods will go up simple things that you buy it. A walmart will inevitably golvin price from t shirts to electron ix to everything in that store most likely will go up undoubtedly so be ready for that <hes> couple other effects oil and gas prices will likely go up and sh- due to shipping costs <hes> going up as well so as the world becomes more regionalized shipping in acrossed seaports and sea lanes will become increasingly any more dangerous. We've seen this in iran with iran. We're seeing more and more oil tankers in shipping tankers being obstructed by by other nations by <hes> rogue nations rogue terrorist organizations so that's going to cost shipping insurance to go through the roof and that's just is going to be passed on to the consumer so shipping prices will go up oil and gas will also go up as well so keep your eyes on those things and i know we covered a a lot today but again just to wrap up. We're moving very quickly from from being what everyone said would continue to grow being global is it'll be more and more of a global world world citizenship. That's completely false and completely changing k. We've we peaked at globalization probably a few years ago. Maybe in two thousand seventeen probably pre donald trump's presidency globalization's out all right. It's it's waning. It's not going to be over over the next year and twenty twenty but it's it's imagine we've climbed a mountain. Were at the top in two thousand sixteen for globalization and we're walking back down that mountain. The world's gonna become more regional. We're gonna have these powers. I listed iran. The european union the united states russia china. They're going to be competing in their spheres influence and they're going to be working through <hes> through economics through military through cultural challenges all of those those ways in many more to challenge rival each other so things will get increasingly complex for how we do business for how we travel for for how we buy food where we go what the cost is. Everything's going to change and if technology hasn't shown has hasn't shown us yet has shown us. I should say how quickly things change. Technology's just drastically changing our world.

"We are in the midst of great change in the world the age the job of the united states led world is really coming to an end and it's coming to an end quickly so this means tremendous change for so you if you live in the united states <hes> and for really people across the globe no matter where you are located it will mean big changes for you as well so the u._s. U._s. has been the dominant force in the dominant nation. <hes> since the end of world war one so approximately one hundred years and the dominant power prior to the u._s. was the british empire for approximately two hundred years or so give or take just a bit so we're moving back into an age of great powers competition so we're going to have different regions led by different powers or multiple powers vying for <hes> vying for dominance in different fields and it's going to start slowly but as we're seeing every day and every month it's going to pick up and i'll go into some examples of that little bit so the great powers competitions coming back and that really originated or that term originated in the post napoleonic europe europe when britain austria prussia france and russia were really worked together competed together to maintain the balance of power in europe so we're also seeing so back to modern times we're seeing the reemergence of both china and russia both much much older civilisations than than the united states of america and we're also seeing the rise very quickly of an another ancient civilization in iran okay from the formerly known as some of you may know formerly known as persia so the wild card of these emerging powers over most of these in detail in a moment the wildcard really i find the most interesting is the european union which again i'll get into that and just just just a moment so first briefly the united states which i i won't get into a lot of detail on at some of its strengths weaknesses and where tap but just a brief mention of some of its spheres of influence that still remain strong to current day okay so a strong sphere of influence in central and south america right the united kingdom especially now as brexit is finally coming to ahead that will be a good <hes> periphery of influence for the u._s. still even stronger now australia the pacific including new zealand and <hes> and also near the japanese <hes> see in japanese area the u._s. Obviously is this is their superpower in the world. I would still consider it the sole superpower of the world and that united states power though not as quickly as some pundits say is receding it is receding and on the global stage. Okay not as quickly as you hear most of the time in in the sensationalized media but it is happening now these powers. I'm going to go over briefly. I'll mention china briefly just a few notes but i'm really going to get into three others in more detail but now and i mean by <hes> <hes> powers these are more regional powers are vying for regional dominance and working their way up the scale. Okay so firstly china okay. There's four we got china iran russia and the european union starring with china <hes> just just briefly the second largest economy in the world has gray geography. Geography guinea has great access to <hes> to freshwater ports. It is a nuclear power which always gives you a bump up when we're talking <hes> geopolitical strengths wchs as far as the great power the game of the great powers. The big strength that it's building is its belt and road initiative. It's been building that for several years so it's building a large corridor door and connecting really connecting all of your asia and reviving old silkroad okay so it's doing that to give it more economic influence and hoping to turn that into military implants <hes> some of the weaknesses i see china just briefly population size. It's massive. Population can be a blessing. It can be a curse guide advice more of the curse when you're into the multiple billions of people are billion and a half or so people <hes> but it can go either way and also state run state and big businesses are are essentially one entity very intertwined which coming from america view that as a big weakness as well so it has many others but i just i'm just going from thirty thousand feet here and i wanna get more into iran russia and especially the e e you and and then also of course how this affects you okay. Why would this affect you. Why do you care. How's this going to help anybody in the world. What what is this matter. Not you so going into iran. Iran doesn't have superpower potential but it's in a unique position. It's some of its strengths are two very unpredictable so as it is it's working in battling in the middle east for influence for to strengthen its. It's own position. It's one of the most unpredictable if not the most unpredictable outside of perhaps north korea. It's one of the most unpredictable of the good of the great. Powers are any of the new killer aspiring powers. It's it's by far the most unpredictable outside of north korea some of its other strengths recently in the last few years it has a very firm influencing and i would even go so far as to say control in on iraq so it's able able to extend that influence into iraq and beyond and also very strong influence in syria the geography of iran's interesting in in the respect to where it's located so it's actually a corridor connecting the middle east in in greater asia so if you ever when you check out a map look at that very interesting there it's it's very it's very yeah well positioned where it's out weaknesses in current <hes> current events it's dealing and dueling directly with the united states and israel okay so it's actually come to the attention the united states so much that it's open conflict and we were kind of ratcheting up the economic and some the skirmishes on the military side so that's not a weakness you want to be under the radar. If you're iran in my opinion the sanctions from the u s led cole the from the u._s. are really crippling iran crippling the the the the modern excuse me the average everyday iranian really hurting the economy <hes> <hes> and the people the more they get frustrated with such an authoritarian regime. That's going to spell trouble for iran. Russia sean moving to russia <hes> just briefly a lot here with russia but i won't stick with them too long. I want to spend time on kind of the wild card of the e._u. Russia's obviously nuclear power our some of their strengths their super-efficient on their military strength so they able to spend less per dollar and get a great result back then saved u._s. Okay they've been able to streamline their military budget and spending geographies a plus it stretches through multiple timezones multiple regions so russia really is unique in the fact of its size number one. It's the largest country okay four square square miles in the world but also so it's able to bridge east and west. It's that link between their russia to me is a super regional power and what that means is because because it's so much i'll go this is one of the weaknesses but because it's so landlocked it isn't able to get to those freshwater ports and easily we exert power as easily as as a china or a united states okay so that allows it to be a swing state is what i call are a nation a swing state to give it's power to any of its allies in the eurasian continent so it can really bolster a leading power which will get to in a minute it weaknesses as is i mentioned land-based power no strong access to oceans and it really does have a small economy very small small g._d._p. Small economy similar in size and scale to to canada can sell not super small but it isn't superpower sized okay so e you real briefly with e you as i see as best i can but <hes> listening to this. I think there's interesting points here because the european union has a unique is unique in many ways but really the potential <hes> the e._u. Has the potential to be the top power in the world. Okay if it if it had a few things change for it but it's that potential henchoz there and that's what makes it very interesting. <hes> strengths at has a central geographic position central being to the world. It's smack dab in in the middle of the world. Meaning has direct access to the atlantic ocean so it can project power all the way to the north american continent and to south america <hes> it has access to the mediterranean therefore influence on the mediterranean nations and north africa and it has access in his able to exert exert influence into the middle east so it had an obviously into into asia via russia so it has access to really every part of the globe from its central starting starting point <hes> currently it's strength. It's under the u._s. Nuclear umbrella so the u._s. is paying and funding essentially for the majority of its nuclear protection and and retaliation okay so that gives it strength because europe can continue to grow and facilitate towards its own defense and military and divert funds as and build up strength while the u._s. protects it so that gives it a unique position in the world <hes> a very unique position asian the combined economy guys is the largest in the world so if you combine all the european nation states their economy would be the greatest in the largest just in the world even surpassing the united states so that that gives you pause as well just to see what this could be one of the largest or the most unique aspects aspects of the e._u. When looking at it versus say china or even even russia or america any of them really is number one. It's a bunch of it's a collection of nations right that individually some of the bigger ones germany france italy and <hes> <hes> in the u._k. Which when it was a part of it all of them can really you stand on their own is as great powers or are have in the past combined. They're very unique. They have some some things that combine them or some things that some things that a by that that bring them together. They have things in common and i'm trying to say but what makes europe unique is europe's. One ability to unify hasn't really we've been activated yet and that that one unique identifiers the catholic church okay so many of the people in eastern and western and europe identifies catholic and the catholic church with the the leadership that has in the way it's created and built with the pope allow that individual and that entity to be and it will be the unifier of europe okay so you heard it here first. It may not happen for several years or maybe even decades but it will happen if europe is to be a world power superpower it will come behind <hes> the the the help of the catholic church and the pope now. How do i know that if you look throughout history and this is interesting anytime europe has been a united force not just one nation or two nations but europe has exerted tremendous influence in the world as united front. It's always come through a strong leader okay on the temporal side right in the government and a strong a strong leader in the catholic church the pope those those two working in conjunction always spell great influence and superpower or great power status for europe and that's what is missing in in europe right now. One of the things going into the weaknesses europe has no unified military at at present time there you can hear checking the news. You're seeing a a lot more calls from some of europe's top leaders to get a unified military at e you army which at present doesn't officially exist europe has too many nation states. I think it's a twenty seven or twenty eight to way too many can't because of that they have no unified foreign policy and they're unable to wield vinnie influence if everybody's if spain's pulling one direction germany another france and other guys get it so really you're going to see them. Guys and again don't know when this will happen exactly ackley. I'm not i don't have dates but they will pair that union down to ten twelve nations k it's going to.

"Truth. Wow. Wow. Nuggets. Some my pen is going crazy hair as you're talking. Now regarding rituals. You know, I talk about the bookends morning and night and having some type of ritual, what? What would you mind sharing you don't have to you don't want to, but would you mind sharing Elliott houses ritual is like from when you get up to when you go to bed, what does a typical day look like? Because as I said, Elliott has a lot of business owners as of ultra penelas at listen to this, and there's a lot of pus from China's that listen to this show, so I won't be Elliott halls daily ritual. If you will, will yo, if your trainer, you know that health is number one, our hormones or Noma one, you know, so that that is a function, you know, good hormone balance and function is a matter of getting in touch with the rhythms of nature. You know, be that your sleep wake cycles or when you eat and use the bathroom. You know, those are two rhythms that we can a tune to through ritual. Every time you sit down and eat, it's a ritual and every. Time you lay down to sleep is a ritual. So what I like to do is to is to use those primary nature based. Frequencies to get back in touch with my truth. And so for example, I go to bed and wake up at the same time every day every night. That's a ritual. If you see for me eight thirty comes okay. I'm already heading toward beds so that I can fulfil my ritual of putting my hand on my pillow at nine o'clock. You see, what I'm saying is not that mystical, that term ritual is not that mystical is not that wild, it's are you ritually getting to bed on time. That's key. If you are wanting to be the strongest version yourself in any area.
