Nicole Gibbons: How Her Company, Clare, Upended the Paint Industry
"I kept exploring different mark opportunities and i came across the pain. Or you know as a designer. I was super passionate about color. And i realized this industry was archaic. The shopping experience was broken. And that's how. I knew. I had a good opportunity might lands. It's amazing actually talk about that because a lot of people think there's like an idea in the middle of the night and someone jumps out of bed and starts their company but what you just described was so thoughtful such a thoughtful process of what you wanted to do and establish your as you say your credentials in your credibility and then then you saw an opening in the market. I mean ask a very simple question. How did you come up with the name. Yeah so. I saw that. All the brands paint. Were hyper masculine. So you know. Benjamin moore darren williams dutch boy. You know they all sound like dudes and plaid shirts and i know from my experience in home that the people who really making the caller decisions in household women and i felt like brands were failing to appeal. The women So i intentionally wanted a name. That was feminine approachable. Easier member friendly sounding Annan name that could be personified so you really build the personality around the brown. And then lastly. I wanted a name that tied back to some deeper meaning unrelated related to color so clear comes from a latin root word laris. That means bright and brilliant And so the word play their felt really appropriate because both brilliant in terms of being innovative in for thinking but also in terms of dollar in. Was you know it kind of checked. All those boxes and it was originally just a working title. Because i wasn't sure what to call the brand but after while it just felt right and sort of stock to the first steps. You took to get this vision off the ground. Yeah so i. I really thought about it for about a year You know super busy in mike company kept thinking like this is such a good idea. How do i make this happened. What do i do to focus my attention. So i thought of this is an idea being twenty six sixteen and then really kind of thought about it off and on the entire year In in the meeting twenty seventeen january you know he wake up on the first of the year and it's kind of like new year new me. What am i gonna do with my life this year. i came back to the idea for clarendon. Like if i don't do this now i probably will never do it. So what are the steps. You take to need to take to make this happen. So i decided to take a quarter off. Vermeille designed firm. I was in a lucky position. That was wrapping up a couple of projects from but two thousand sixteen and so i finished up those products. But i didn't take on any new clients. And i spent i said to myself one quarter shoe explore the opportunity to talk to people in the paint industry figure out. You know how. I might go about doing this. And also get the company
Explaining Threshold Concepts in Physical Education
"Spoke. That's just come out chamber alderson bryant threshold concepts in physical education design thinking approach. Now it may be that people listening. Don't know what some of those things are yet and we will come to that but first of all. How was it that the three of you came to collaborate on this book was the story behind it. Okay tom so i guess if i take you back a couple of years prosise really started. When funeral was applauded does student examiner for sporting p. program in the poorest folks in health sciences on. I believe it was really the first time i visited as an external examiner. Three arrests went for the coffee down. Cardiff pay before her return. Flight home it was really that conversation. Not coffee was where the magic or the seed for this book was prompted. I vividly remember the discussion that we were in the world to right within our own discipline. I think in particular some of the key critical questions we were asking each other centered around as a discipline of physical education. We clear what we were trying to achieve where we try to overclaim what we trying to do achieve was really possible for children and young people to achieve before they left school. So i guess the the most important question pursue our skin to establish with our listeners now is is this idea of threshold concepts and what. That's all about what is a threshold concept and why they so valuable to physical education so any discipline that we think about there are disciplined because they have these things called thresholds concepts. That's the only reason they're ever called a discipline. And i know that annan. Her previous answer mentioned as we believe that he was a disciplined or actually redick wondering about that ourselves. Is that actually the case. So if i give you some examples of threshold concepts first of all tonight on package little bit for you if we look at particular disciplines so for example in maths at threshold current set is an complex numbers if we look at design. Ambiguity is a concept. You have to grasp if you're a designer if you don't grasp what you can't call yourself a designer in law its presence. It's opportunity cost in economics. It's entropy maybe in physics so every discipline you can caboche if you were to lead the miles on the table. Every discipline that we know of has these threshold concepts and weirdly. We couldn't actually claim that for physical education. We couldn't literally sit down and go boom. That's what he eagles and we found that often. That was a problem because we felt that the reason of our subject area is often not valued is because we don't have these we haven't called the mouse definitively physical education offers. These are these threshold concepts so threshold concepts when their masters. They enabled students to look at problems in completely new ways. Antitank practice and talk in a manner of scholars of that discipline and the reason called threshold. Concepts is because you literally cross thresholds when you learned and you can never unlearn them. An maybe from maybe the fact that we're involved in movement riding a bike you never forget how to ride a bike so once you've learned tisch. It's not something that you can ever unlearn it's there it's embodied etc so quadruple would be described as admire land. Who don an awful lot of work in this area. It's like a portal so opens up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something and it represents a transformed way of understanding or interpreting our viewing something and without that the learner cannot progress in that particular discipline or ever call themselves a scholar at that discipline.
Give Analysts Exactly What They Want with Paul Battista CEO of Polarity
"Your elevator pitch on polarity for us. It it's around thoroughness and speed so we recognized and this goes back to our time in as well annan penetration testing when we're consultants right. You have the the to kind of prototypical analysis you have. The analyst who is really thorough dives down every rabbit hole looks and fines for every path. It's possible but they take a long time to get it done right. This is the person that would go back to that whiteboard and check every single time of the new comes in. They're checking every single one to make sure they're doing extra thorough job and then you have. The other analysts is probably where i tell you. Have the other animals without rates. I'm instinct lot not one hundred percent thorough because the job done much quicker But it's not too busy installing lennox right. Yeah when he's sitting right right. Yeah so yeah that analysts and so for us we said well how can we take the qualities of that first analyst instead of making their thoroughness ninety percent or ninety nine percent. Let's make him a hundred percent thorough on the data they care about and speed them up while we do it. So instead of you know that decision usually costing time let's let's give them a productivity boost so we can make some Thorough and faster the same time. That's extremely valuable to an industry and information security where. We're understaffed It's hard to find a fine fine talent. That type of data we deal with was was meant for machines to know and recognize things like file hashes in ip addresses. Either more machine readable than they are human readable. So let's let's let's really enable those folks. Are there any lessons that you've learned along the way as the product has been put in front of users based on their feedback. Have you had any sorta Moments like oh people are people are using this in perhaps ways. We hadn't expected or you know. We need to make some adjustments here to to maximize You know the the value they get out of this. Yeah i mean lots of moments along the way both Ha moments from a. We didn't think folks would use it that way. In in the kind of use cases come out were the success stories. Come out so. I always love hearing customer success stories where you know we. We surprise them and they didn't expect polarity was going to highlight something. It highlighted something in it changed their their belief on that thing whether it's kicking off a new investigation or or the way they handle investigation to to handle it Slightly different and then yeah. Learning from a what enables analysts perspective. So one of the things that we haven't crossed the line or we have tested crossing wine but learned to to really really hold. The line was not being too much of a suggestion. Engine so you can. You can guess at what analysts want. But we've found that the better path is let analysts subscribe to the exact data. They care about in. Give them exactly what they want. And don't try to be more on the a suggestion side of things Because you could end up being a distraction even if you're right and give them great information eighty percent of the time or ninety percent of the time that ten percents still distractions going slow them down so let the analysts choose the data. They care about an give them exactly that data when they need it.

The coronavirus makes virtual funerals the new normal
"So Tony about these virtual funerals have they work so funerals and memorial services in wakes have started being conducted over video chat apps like zoom skype for many families in the time of the pandemic similarly to a traditional funeral they're still aspects that the family can have control love lake religious aspect meaningful readings and songs played etc. It's just a bit more complicated to navigate a sense sometimes. This is the first time a person might be using this type of technology even though we might think of video chat apps is fairly common. But it's not the same as being able to share a physical space with the people who loved the person that you did. That's now gone. Yeah it's one thing for us to casually chat or video conference a funeral that it's obviously that's something that has a lot more gravity to to it and so it's interesting to me how that actually works like how do you. It is a solemn occasion. It's one of the incredible importance Hot is one Replicate that in for the virtual experience for the conference so basically I spoke to a woman in Oregon who owns a funeral home and she's been conducting digital funerals virtual funerals in memorial services and essentially what she does if she sets up her laptop in front of the casket. The Shroud and after everyone has dialed into the zoom. Call skype call. She makes sure that everybody has what they need. I can see Annan. She waits in her office and she gives the family time about an hour and then she'll check back in. She'll see if they need anything more time. If anyone still there logged in and the end she often goes to the burial. Sometimes if the family isn't allowed to attend and shall film or photograph or she'll do video chat call from the burial From the cemetery and gap. So that's that's kind of how funerals are working in during panic. Yeah it's interesting. How that works. You bought finish point about how you know for some folks. This is the first time on the conferencing like beyond the complexity of organizing something like this. A federal directors almost have to be tech support Radka educate folks into using conferencing. I don't know if you could if the funeral director anything about that. Like the extra responsibility she now has. Right it was. That was also interesting. I mean her her name was Elizabeth for Neon. She's out of Oregon Dating talk to her because she's she had used video chat apps prior And if somebody couldn't make to a funeral you know she would set up the video chat APP like somebody was at school and she would have that going so they could also be at the funeral but now that's almost exclusively what's happening because of covid nineteen so but I mean if if it's an elderly couple they might not know how to use skype or phone are like we might know how to do so. I think that that is a challenge. That families face now with with nineteen in doing funerals over Over skype and you. You mentioned that you know like almost saw. The is that how common things like that. What the situation is like is at are. Most of these funerals be conducted. Virtually now there are a lot more common now during the coronavirus. Pandemic especially with the lockdown orders and social distancing rules that only permit about ten or fewer people in place When I talked to Elizabeth. She said that she abused Chat APPs in the past like I said But visit virtual funerals and memorial services have become so much more common out and. I think they're going to stay in some capacity even when lockdowns are lifted and life returns to whatever normal will be having video chat apps as an option gives family and friends from all over the opportunity to give their respect without worrying about travel even without the fear of pandemic. You know you don't have to come from Alaska or across the ocean or if somebody is uncomfortable with funerals they can still say goodbye to a loved. One with a shoutout. Yeah you raise a really good point because I mean you could argue that you know having a laptop at a funeral or do when these conference calls before all this might have been seen as inappropriate but all of a sudden with the The situation has forced this to become the norm. I could definitely see how this could be something. That's a lot more susceptible socially at funerals Even once we get past this pandemic out beyond beyond the adding laptop look at funeral. Homes changed at all to account for this for the social distancing policies. Like what what? What else have they done to making more commenting for current situation right? When I spoke with Elizabeth. She told me that the mortuary the cemetery boards funeral bureau's the entities that are in charge of licensing and protocol for funeral homes and cemeteries in. Each state have said that it's best. It's in the best interest of funeral. Homes to treat every death like cove in nineteen deaths simply for the safety of the embalmers and other workers in the industry But more of adopted this digital approach to handle as many aspects of the funeral as possible during the pandemic and that's for the safety of themselves in the families who need the plan service so a lot more Through my research for this article it wasn't just Elizabeth's funeral home. That have been taking this digital
The Pentagon wants to squash this 5G upstart
"You've got a fascinating tale here. A company that has faced a decades long battle to build this alternative wireless network told me a little bit about Llegado. Yes so Llegado is like a company of different name. It had a previous name before. But it's it basically is a company that is trying to build a five G. Network using spectrum that it already owns. That's really earmarked for satellite. So they WANNA use kind of like a meld their satellite network and build a terrestrial networks so that they can provide five G. services to big industrial types of companies like like the railway system. Or something like that to be able to to really get like banned capability out to places where you can't reach and then to really use Sort of like smart devices To to be able to connect to that network. There's a lot of hype a lot of interest in five years. So it's it's a little surprising that like one arm of the government is so up in arms against it and this is the Defense Department Why why are they so against Lagaras plan? So the reason why is the spectrum that Llegado is using is what's called the L. Band and that encompasses GPS spectrum so they the spectrum that they are proposing to use for their terrestrial network is literally right next to the GPS spectrum that That the Defense Department uses in really. Everybody uses So they're the Defense Department is saying that that they are worried about interference and that this would be a big problem for their applications right so the FCC has gone ahead at prove this And I know. Llegado has some some Backers rent but wh where are we right now with the SEC with the SEC approving this defense department has sort of wrapped up its opposition? So so where exactly are way? Are we in this in this battle? Yeah so I just want to step back real quick for a second and give you a little bit of history here so this the spectrum llegado dot is using is is next to to. Gps right and so that has been the issue that has really Been a problem for this company and its multiple incarnations over the last two decades right because a lot of folks who use. Gps have been worried about this interference. And there's been tons of back and forth for years and lots of studies done about the interference and so the company says it really cleared all that up But then the Defense Department is now saying like well. We're just not quite sure and we still think this is is a problem so you know after all these years of looking at this issue the FCC in April Decided to go ahead and grant permission for the company to repurpose it spectrum so they unanimously decided that like and looked at all the studies and said we think the interference issues have been taken care of and and we think this company can go forward whereas the Pentagon is saying but wait a minute. Wait a minute. We think that they're still an issue. So so right now. It's approved but the Pentagon is Is Raising questions. And they've gone to Congress to say you know if the FCC isn't going to revisit this issue we want you to do something. That's good point trying to figure out like what happens. Now since he has to has proved technically Llegado can go forward with this but what what steps does does it take. Congress to of step in and halt this process for this to happen really. What if the Defense Department wants to be successful? How does it actually go about stopping this move right so the FCC is really in charge of commercial spectrum use Annan government spectrum uses under a different agency MTA and so they said what the Defense Department is doing right now is they're appealing to? Ntia to ask them to convince the FCC to change his mind but pretty much. Everybody is in agreement that it would be very unlikely for the FCC to go back on. Its decision especially since it was this big unanimous decision in. They've studied the issue for so long
COVID-19 Escalates but Biotech Bright Spot in Trillium Therapeutics
"So again. I'm glad to be back and appreciate everybody's attention today. And we have an extensive show ahead of us so I'm going to talk about a variety of different things. I WANNA touch on some latest biotech news a menu to talk about the vijen earnings report that. I said I would get to so. There's a few interesting tidbits. There have to talk about the covert nineteen story because that's been really blowing up and I think there are significant implications for the market. And then I'm GONNA finish up by talking about the latest in the anti CD. Forty seven technologies and specifically. I'm going to focus on trillion but also gonNA touch on T. G. Therapeutics so at that. Let's just get right into it. And the first piece of news I had to mention. Is that a sperry on recently. Heard News that they're two compounds. Were approved by the FDA. The one is just the paddock acid pill which they've named it next next little and the dog acid is it. Ahmad Combo pill was also approve. Called next Zet so good news for them. They finally breached the finish. Line are GONNA be able to sell these products. The stock did KINDA BUMP UP AFTER. This news came out but then with all the News Cove Nineteen. The stock did sell off. And I think it's hanging around fifty bucks I still have ten shares. Probably GonNA sell relatively soon just to you know take the prophets and look for more opportunities that have larger chance of bringing a return on my investment but great news for them. The next piece of news I want to talk about is and we heard that they are exploring a potential buyer according to Bloomberg. We haven't heard too much confirmation since then but in the past week we've seen the stock runup quite significantly and it looks like there's a good chance that somebody could pick them up. I'm still holding only about ten shares unfortunately but I'm probably going to sell them just because I feel like we've heard a lot of these rumors once in a while. And often times they don't come to fruition Annan. Pretty happy with the Prophet made so far and given it's only ten shares. I think I might again sell these enda and look for other opportunities. That are coming around the next piece of news. I want to talk about his ammon. And they have been all over the place lately We heard that they released some post trial documents. Because they're undergoing this litigation right now to maintain exclusivity for their patents and you. I kind of glanced at them. I don't really know what to make of them. We're still waiting for a judgement to come down and we'll see that. Relatively soon I think and negativity around the stock. I think is going to be uplifted once that goes through. And we should see a return. All-time highs I've been adding the stock as it's been down and it's pretty heavy in my portfolio now so. I still think that they're goodbye here. The next piece of news on touch on is the latest from the American Society of Retina specialists. And this is because I have touched on wet. Amd in previous videos by interested in this space and they announced that Bayview patients and this is the drug for wet amd that was recently approved by Novartis and this a s R s society issued a warning about fourteen cases of retinal vascular disease with eleven of those being occlusive retinal vascular. Now this can be actually pretty serious condition. That can lead to permanent blindness. So it's It's fair for the society to to issue a warning to people who are considering this therapy especially given that. There are other therapies. That don't have this risk that have been approved in in circulation for awhile now. Nevada stands by view. And they said that. There's been an estimated. Forty six thousand injections done a bill view so far and they did not see that this happened in their phase three trials they did mention there were sixteen cases of ubiquitous and nine cases of Iras. But they still stand by their own compound and they're saying that they're doing post market surveillance to see that's going to be a problem but When this news came out we saw that Novartis Kinda dipped and regeneration stock increase quite a bit just in the expectation that more people are gonNA stick with Lia which is the drug that was approved. That's been approved for a lot longer than bayview and there are more frequent injections. But it's obviously more safe. So all of this could be prevented if re-genesis BIOS drug there gene. Therapy for wet. Amd can hit the market and then patients would only really need one injection hopefully to To prevent Amdi from happening. So that's kind of an interesting thing going on with the amd space so to hit the major stories that I want to talk about today though. We're GONNA talk about biogen. The cove in nineteen esscalation. And then I have here. That Gilead announced that they're going to buy the company named forty-seven for four point. Nine billion dollars and this is worth mentioning because the company talking about which is trillium also has an anti CD forty seven antibody in hopes of using it for hematological malignancies but also potential in solid tumors. So we're GonNa talk about that as the feature story but first thing. I want to talk about his budget so I went through the earnings report and I have touched on by. Jin on a number of different occasions in this podcast. And I think it's a really interesting company being in that kind of mid to large cap space what they announced that their revenue went up seven percent year over year. And amongst all of that the MS franchise was actually down four percent year over year. But what they did is they included cruise. Which is an anti CD. Twenty compound but it's also used to treat ms so they included that in the press release to make the overall year over year revenue increase by two percent. And I think they did this. Because the franchise itself up sixty percent of by toll revenue so to show that that franchise is actually increasing has kind of beneficial from a PR standpoint. They also announced that verity was approved for relapsing. Ms And we did hear that last year. Visionary is similar detector but it has fewer Gi side effects so this was approved it was shown to be non inferior to tech Videira so this is just adding to its. Ms Franchise is going to be continuing to prevail in being a large revenue generator. For by. John. I believe we also saw and I mentioned this last time that the Texas air decision was positive for biogen. So that compound is can also be protected. Biden's going to maintain its exclusivity. So that's good news for that. I don't see the franchise decreasing substantially. It's probably only going to increase with the vulgarity. Approval there are competitors coming on the space but given that by agendas so many MS compounds right now. That are pretty effective. I think it's going to be a continual driver of revenue for the company now in terms of the upcoming revenue generator spin. Rosza is is one of those that's done in the market for. I think almost a year now and revenue increased nine point three percent year over year which is great and this franchise makes up fifteen percent of total biogen revenue so that has increased over the past few quarters. I think as I as I looked at this and they did mention here that we expect the rate at which spinner is a revenues will grow will moderate in twenty twenty compared to twenty nineteen primarily due to a lower rate of new patients starts combined with the impact of loading does dynamics as patients transition from dosing every four months so the way the payment system works for. Spin Rosza is that it costs seven hundred fifty thousand for the first year and then subsequent loading years just cost three hundred seventy five thousand Subsequently so we see this big boost in revenue. When there's a lot of new patients starts and then it Kinda tapers off as patients or just getting that loading dose. So I think that's why they're saying that. Revenues will moderate because the amount of new patient starts is actually decrease and I think this is due to vexes. Launch of excess Novartis is launch of their own therapy for spinal muscular atrophy. So I think as that competition continues the amount of revenue that's generated by spin. Raza is GonNa flat now and patients who likes Raza will probably stay on it but I think that that increased competition. It's still going to harm the new patient start so I don't see this space necessarily increasing too much now. Other things to consider is the repurchase program and this boost the stock price pretty substantially in the last year they repurchased twenty four million shares and that was a cost of five point nine billion dollars and by my calculation that means in the current repurchase program they have about twelve million shares to continue to buy and their net. Cash is still three point. Five billion dollars so they have a lot of cash on hand to buy current shares that are outstanding which is only going to support the price of the Stock. Moving forward another thing. They announced is the commercialization rights to idea as well as loose cintas. So going back to what I said about the wet. Amd space these two compounds are the current kind of establish treatment for wet amd with view just recently being added the size of the market for I league in Los Angeles is eleven billion dollars but these are going to be biosimilars and as we know. Biosimilars don't generate nearly as much money as the actual panel drug the current by similar. That biogen has day only make about one tenth of the revenue of the panel

Welcome to the Nice guys on business podcast. Oh Man Doug I'm happy to be here. Thanks for having me I love having you here Lee. And you're one of those guys that just stood out in the crowd because You know one of the things we talked about in I don't know if we talked about this a new media summit but we did talk about this recently in our prerecording conversation was that people people oftentimes have this. This fear that that difficulty is Is it means you're on the wrong path and I wanNA share not only a little. It'll be your story but I wanNA talk about that as we get into it because those that are listening I want them to just jump in right now. We all are facing these difficult times. When it comes to running a business thriving in our business and kind of moving to that next step and sometimes we feel like difficulty means that? We're going down the wrong way. So why don't you share a little bit of your pass and talk about this difficulty. Means you're not necessarily on walk past. Yeah so part of my story of entrepreneurship is I didn't actually realize that was what was for years. I just knew I made a really bad employee. Impact Vaca at a at a number of Review Tom's when I would walk in and Annan you the person who was the director out. I was trained as a therapist. But what had already done a number of businesses really since I was a teenager a was a Now this secret there doug but Abbas yes we won't tell anyone right air show so all of the magician when I was a teenager so Gidon yeah in the in. The nerdy. Ranks I was right there. but I was a magician who made some pretty decent money when I was a teenager because I did parties all the time and I didn't ever really think that I was you know in business I just I was doing agile shows and getting paid for it and so even when I look back you know I I I did that. I helped run a clothing store when the owner was burned earned out and Pretty much everything from ordering the stuff to a taking care of other people on staff and I was a teenager at that point and then I did the same thing with a restaurant. The owner was burned out and I ran a restaurant or helped run the restaurant and and what I realize long ways I really didn't like being told what to do so that kind of extended into my life as trained as a therapist and yet I worked in an agency which brings us to that point when I would walk into the the job review annual review and say hey anoma really bad employees You can get rid of me. I'm you know I'm happy. Go somewhere else if you want. And what they basically they did And and where I kind of made my way is when they let me do what I thought was best and so they stuck me in satellite office and let me run that program and it became really the only thing that kept that Senator in Business I was kind of a cash cow for a long time. And so along the way I right realize at some point. This is a realization that I think we all realize that at some point. We're no matter what we're doing if we're professionals we're an hourly employee employees. I mean as a therapist I can only see so many clients. I can only do so much and so at one point I Decided to start a business on the side which was no surprise? I don't think that my wife but this was a bigger gamble than I thought so. Here I was trying as a therapist to figure out how to make an extra income stream came from a family We were. I've been Grad School for forever I was talking with someone the other day. And I said I was in Grad School for as low from college to the into Grad School. As long as I was from kindergarten to the end of highschool well professional student way to go with it was a long time and along the way you know. You ever see the forty year old virgin. Did you ever think. Fortunately fortunately for me I had to work along the way that was the the thing about Being trained as therapist you. You can't just do school. You GotTa go do some real training and so I actually was working for a good stint of that time other than college I really was working the whole time on the side but that was when I realized I'm like you know this this hourly thing I mean I can only go so far and so I tried to create this business snus and it crashed and burned and I figured out why it crashed and burned but it was a painful event for me because while I was trying to build something from my family would I ended up doing is putting us way deeper in debt I'd already had kind of a stunted professional life because while I was working I was also going to school and so I couldn't really go full force and so suddenly we were extra in debt With a business loan that had a rough Payback payback. And I refuse to do bankruptcy. I just I was like I did this. I'M GONNA take it on and I'm going to finish it and learn some very important lessons along along the way about what happens when you try to start a business that's not in your place of purpose or meaning And incredibly painful event and then A stayed away for a while but I wrote a book and I thought well. I'll just write this book and be an author and along the way This was back in nineteen ninety on at a friend who said Hey Who's going to publish that for yesterday? At I'll figure it out when I finish it. He said well while you're trying to figure that out. Watch making an e Book Doc Now e Book Nineteen Ninety Nine like what's Abbott. Nobody knew that Renault not a wasn't a ninety nine cent you know thing that Amazon had done at that point and so what I really didn't realize as I was getting into informational marketing world and I didn't really realize that even after I had a website up and I was selling the book and it was getting to be more or more successful and sigh. Finally one day out I was like an. I'm one of those Internet marketing gas And so Yup had to revamp what I understood about myself. I just I kind of stumbled from Osh preneurs shipped entrepreneurship and finally one day went. Oh that's the problem. I'm an entrepreneur. That's the personality pieces that I had missed along the way But what I realized I like to do was to help people have better lives. I mean if if there's much ship of that it's really about how do you help people so tail end of my graduate school literally sitting at a desk surrounded with my two little kids. who were toddling around me with stacks of Books Everywhere Writing My dissertation and I turn to my wife and I said Hey? I just read this article about this coaching thing. This was Nineteen Ah Eighty six. I think and said That's what I do and she said wait. You've done a lot of schooling to be a therapist and now you're telling me you WANNA be a coach and I said well it's Kinda how I do therapy. And so that launched me into the world of coaching added coach. Training literally had not even turn in my dissertation and I started a coach training program and took that into My clinical life and so along the way figured out that was a coach and entrepreneur an informational marketer. A writer now podcast all that stuff just kind of fit into the place of how do you help people people get to a place where life has more meaning for you. So how's that for now. That's really cool and I appreciate you you sharing all of that because again Nice Guy Community is you're checking this out. Just think. Think about your particular place in life in the journey that you have taken especially as an entrepreneur. It's it really is a matter of just. You're never going to focus on an entrepreneur entrepreneur. I think our goal We always think is to get from point eight to point Z.. And do it as profitably as we possibly can not realizing oftentimes along the way. There's a bunch of what we think at the time maybe setbacks but they're really opportunities for learning and growth
Gayatri Mantra: This Ancient Solar Mantra Will Raise Your Vibrations Instantly
"Up some context all right so many of you know that I was born into a vedic family and growing up every now and then we'd have e ed or a fire ceremony at our home and as usual you'd have the priests chanting hymns and Mantras and as a kid sitting there I felt a sense of dizziness within hours like we're deciding all these hymns right and all these mantras but I don't really know what and the Amine and if I don't know the meaning significance behind what I'm seeing then why am I saying this right and deep down I made a promise to myself that sometime in the future when more to Ivan go on a quest to find the meaning behind all these hymns and and ritual uh-huh and mantras and share them with the word because I knew that there was something sacred about them I could feel the vibrations but the experience was incomplete without me actually knowing what they meant UC unfortunately in India because of what happened in the bust that itch and language of Sanskrit was slowly iraised from common everyday usage and these days asgard is mostly used in the temple. but that's changing slowly and more and more educated. Indians are slowly rediscovering the rich ancient heritage if India and its cultural and spiritual and artistic and scientific and linguistic history and it's not just Indians but it's people all over the world You're you're discovering the power and promise of practices like Yoga I read way dant right it's amazing and and that's what today's episode Associational so what is a mantra really know many of you might have heard the term mantra especially those of you who are into Noga in Iowa but what does the mantra really signify well a mantra is a Yantra a technology of sound you see the ancient sears there's in India after spending days months or even years in deep contemplation would experience a deep spiritual. awakening and a divine connection with the universe and with the guards and indistinct they would hear songs and they will see images and and feel sensations and they would then pass on these sounds and these mantras to their disciples as a sort of shortcut to experiencing this higher state of being this a state of divinity so to speak and there are thousands of mantras that one can experiment with and practice to write to see different results from healing to a weakening to liberation now the Guidry Mantra is comprised of twenty four syllables with eight syllables Berlin in the month begins with own and many of you know that the mantra all is very sacred and way powerful home is the sound of inception OAM is the sound Dad Universe emanates even today and it is deep primordial sound of creation and one that helps with healing and relaxation and in fact you could try it out if a baby is crying and if you chant or Internet own there's a good chance that the baby relax and quiet down that's how awful it is so the first line off the guy three mantra is all blur Boa Soi right so booed Bluer Soi this signify the three realms all of Earth Space and the heavens above Boor Bluer Soi more deeply it the three realms of existence the physical the mental and the spiritual or the soil level existence and the order also matters we're here right the deduction is from the physical to the spiritual rather than the other way around and in a way this line sets the tone for what is to follow in the endowed him the next lane is dot Salvator Buddy neom that salvator minium which means that supreme divine light that shines down upon the earth so graciously so in discriminatively right the light that shines down from the sun shines down on everybody is spectacle of who they are walked level of affluence they have or how much wealth they have everyone especially in the same country right receives equal amount of sunshine as long as they are standing out in the open night so this particular line is saying that a bow down to that supreme divine light that shines down upon Earth now the ancients knew that there was something very powerful and sacred about the sun and they give the sun many names as well oddity is one of them which is him and then you have Suria Arca Bonou Saavedra bush-annan Harvey Martin Mithra it's all these different names for the same supreme being which is the life giving son and then knew that there was a powerful intelligence that who was governing life as Nord an infinite intelligence a divine being a guard a force of nature the ancient sears united this supreme divine life giving force and bowed down to it in respect and admiration now the next lane is bud Google Dave Assiette de Mahy I what does that mean the deity that is eating brightly with light I meditate or I the flicked upon it I contemplate upon this beautiful light and then we go to the next land his deal you'll bradshaw diat this is a request do the divinity off light to stimulate the intelligence and wisdom within the seeker so that the person who is seeing the him is awakened and stimulated by the light and in the stimulation there's an energy that is a weakened within and which direction is this energy going to move in the direction has already anchored in the first lane which is Buddha Boa Soi Supplies Swartberg are the heavens nights going from the Earth the physical do the subtle to the heavens from gross

Is WeWork's Business Model Viable?
"Today we're going to look at the complex topic week which is easily work at viable business model be if you've been following. Actually the news lately you so that we work is pretty much anywhere and why. I don't like to cover things that really into the news because there is a lotta noise around. It's very hard to make sense of it there. Everyone when denning opinion like what's going on. I won't do really highlight. I flew points and really give respective again just because I think it is a lot of noise right now so St John's is a viable business model. It's not an for several reasons now. Let's go point by point to over a few things that we might want to look at when it comes to to we work now we work was at ease was a private company actually still a company that will strain to actually get a go through an IPO was trying to become a public company and the one thing which is interesting interesting is that we work adjust two thousand eighteen. According to several kinds of valuations at our company was worth more than forty billion dollars which which is a lot breath so now one question getting comes to mind Isa are we actually going through a private bobble in terms of private companies education because what's up rent now. It seems that at least in two thousand nineteen the company's got listed as they didn't manage to actually we have a successful appeals and actually manage to go to a really excitement of the market doc it around those companies now. What are the reasons behind it and you know when talking about companies that I feel I'm thinking about companies like Uber or lift or other. There are other companies that are really field this year now. The the the party said I mean look at the the we work financials the one thing that you know this race that of course company now but he arrived from two thousand eighteen eighty two to nineteen with talking about the first Amancio Manso year but this time he also improved. It's expensive quite substantially there things to take into account. If if we work was going to wipe with buzzy the numbers you can imagine that we wouldn't have oldies noise that that he's right now and one thing is also about timing timing timing. It's betty white important as you imagine it can really make or break a company and in in this year that there are the worry about recession that increasing freezing you you can imagine that for a company that could afford to actually go through an IPO without having a viable business model l. A. Becomes very hard when you go through a decision at his video especially when your primary customers are companies that actually are stuffed upset if we go through a decision would be the first companies to actually suffered from it. It's very important also delighted that we work as a really so you know improving its enterprise customers which we're getting that those might seek if we go through a recession but at the meantime on the other end if we think we interbike customers by be using we work as a really an expansion buckner so we'd ally on we work as enterprise company because we're trying to expand the operation with one free since I'm just thinking in terms of me me as a as a potential enterprise customer we work so instead of relying on internal resources and expanding geographically because he may be a recent too risky ASCII because then it becomes harder to to to to cat space and stuff we we use we work as a partner for so again imagine that if we both rotation diseases diseases. I sorta viable which will get cut so again recession. He's hard because for especially for a business model which hasn't proved viable yet yet. It's it's very hard another aspect that you know this when you go through the. We Work Appeal our attempt IPO because it was if you following the news right now you know that the company has withdrawn so far at least delaying the ideal so in might reconsider near enough in a few months things are stopped workout free since death thinking fire quite a quite a few employees but one thing that you know these when you go through a dealer of the as one which is the forum that companies as companies to meet when they after will probably could tell there to meet these form to the SEC has the Security Exchange Commission. What is that. There are a few quite a few buzzwords so so there are many things that we work is is doing that again if the company was a viable business model if we were in a timing where things were working properly. We were not going through are probably the people were not expecting a recession to come. Those things will be steep paths. I think again for many passwords you might use if on the other end you have Saudi auty business that there's nothing that can save you a if you look at the financial companies like starbucks that had somebody uses the buzzwords him in the culture of the company and in many cases companies themselves are caught who are really cultures. Really you know they really try to emphasize. This is when Bet Katcher dating. That's what makes them special even again. Companies are businesses that make money. They need to make money consistently so fittings things had come out to mind when we go to the one we worked. His first world. We work is trying to really redefine a new sort of model which is which combining goals space as now. If you know how commercial real estate works you know that usually what happens is that you ran an office our RSP's commercial space for your company and all you do is really you pay the rent and then free since the end of the year you might be the so called the Camman on Adia maintenance fees. which really are the shared the shared expenses that that the you know the lender the landlord might anticipate for for the commercial tenants? Annan's Gadiya switched. Dan can be spread for for the Commercial you know Florida Florida the the the people renting those commercial spaces at the end of the year depending on the kind of contract that you have of course you can pay the quote the pulmonary maintenance in different ways but again these these important for the landlord in which is a running business because he can actually get back a few of the of a did the expenses that he had on no commercial property and it can be also used as a leverage when you have a contract with a commercial tenant what happens is a union see something like okay. I'm going to reduce the KOMO Nadia maintenance fees. If you WANNA be free since then I amount of money now we were starting to redefine this space by actually adding more to it so that a a company sparked of the we were community that will be using the co working of a company actually would be a retainer so be a monthly Italy fee a subscription fee and that's where the space has a Saturday's comes to police now if we were also voted species said listen if this is. GonNa turn are now to be a viable model. I mean we we're going to look at it in in the instagram and I think it's fine you know people arguing whether accompany bunny can come up with these new analogy and just get we did. I think he can if he has a viable business model again here. The point these I is that the company is in bad timing and in these bad timing where we're going through a recession it's using up the bats words and it's not showing showing a viable business model because again those same words that we're seeing today that were used a back in two thousand sixteen seventeen when we work was considered one of the hottest companies around and valued over forty billion dollars. I think what's making huge difference. He's the fact that the company right now is a very bad timing go there are also that aspects like of the corporate governance had the fact that the recent the the the founder CEO Newman as been having a little control and managing teams out not transparently from from the way it was you know leasing space to the company and also the fact that the company Bunny at Bush's including each for technology company even though again we work a main attempt is really to form a commissioner real estate contract which usually again it's it's a it's simple contracting something which is more on on on Saturday space where you know it's common in software as a service speeds in all the other services industry that we have today in in the in the after throughout the Internet the area where you can just fight several kinds of surveys you leverage on data technology another savviest easiest to actually have have the company spot from being something on on a daily basis now aiding said. Did they really again another another keeping the thing it's about the addressable market where the company argues that had he said these these these market that which can be I think over over three years or something like that tight remember. The exact number is not the when he comes to this will markets cadets beak big question mark when Gumbiner essay these going to be these album is going to be the market in ready the how how do you even know because that depends many variables and you can be really sick as possible or you can dream big but hey at the end of the bench about how economy is going to evolve and you know. It's very a hard to predict so again. is we work a viable business model. It's not and it's not because is not showing yet a bottom line which which it's going to work. ability heats a it's really a bad timing where the company still using buzzwords in a time where you need to be more really sick we're going through and so there are more people which are skeptical about what's going on any future customer base which is made of startups of course the risk is that you're gonna be the you're going to be the first company which is GonNa four once the recession comes and then if you know we asked whether we work is a fraud. I mean if we look at the business itself. Of course it's real business if we city whether the numbers are if we rely on the numbers they gave plus in the financial statements with these these further not something that you know there's going to be an investigation or something things will will you know would would be figuring out right now. It's really understanding that when you don't have a viable business model and you're going through a recession and and you're keep using the male that you'll be using in the past to Pamper your valuation a private market which is less than spying compared to market reasoning to change your mindset need to make sure that you understand that probably market it takes a different approach Yuguang through our session unique understand the context so really for me. This is a lack of understanding on the context right now so that we went through recession understanding that at the same model that used used to get to a fifty billion dollars relation is not the same to actually keep their valuation and five there and that actually when you have a viable business model. It's very eddie easy to argue whether the company is going to work them much or more

Top takeaways from the 1st night of the 2nd Democratic primary debate
"Tuesday night was another Democratic presidential financial debate round two part one tonight with ten candidates on the stage in Detroit broadcast on C._N._N.. And we are going to take a key moment of the debate replay it for you and then we're going to break it down with politico healthcare reporter Dan diamond author of the political pulse newsletter and the host of the pulse check podcast. Dan Thank you so much for stepping to the sidelines of politicos crowded debate night newsroom to to talk through this. I am thrilled to be here with you. Scott all right. Let's let's get right to it. Here's the moment we picked kicked out the moderators and the candidates jumped right into <hes> the biggest policy issue facing Democrats had twenty twenty the one their voters say the most important to them health care and the early exchanges between Bernie Sanders and John Delaney with the Little Bit of Elizabeth Warren will will bring her in a little later really set the tone for the whole debate so right after the opening statements C._N._N.'s Annan's Jake Tapper turn to Senator Bernie Sanders Senator Sanders. Let's start with you you support Medicare for all and ask him to explain his support for Medicare for all in terms of criticism from Congressman John Delaney rival for the Democratic nomination who said it would take private health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and he has called the idea political suicide that will just get president trump reelected. What do you say to Congressman Delaney? You're wrong right now. We have a dysfunctional healthcare system eighty seven million uninsured ensured or underinsured five hundred thousand dollars five hundred thousand Americans every year going bankrupt because of medical bills thirty thirty thousand people dying while the healthcare industry makes tens of billions of dollars in profit five minutes away from the John is a country it called Canada it they guarantee healthcare every man woman and child as a human right they Senator Sanders Congressman glading. I'm right about this. We can create a universal healthcare system to give everyone basic healthcare for free and I have a proposal missile to do it but we don't have to go around the party of subtraction and telling half the country has private health insurance that they are health insurance is illegal. My Dad Union electrician loved. I love the healthcare he got from the I._B.. W he would never want someone to take that away all right Dan we're we're going to go back through this thought by thought a little bit but the the big picture here and then I think you're writing about your newsletter tomorrow morning. This exchange right at the top of the debates crystallized everything everything about the the the big policy debate going on in the primary and also that we really saw for the entire debate on Tuesday night. It's clearly a debate that will define the Democratic Primary Mary although I don't know if John Delaney is going to be the one making it at the end Joe Biden Her p Buddha judge might step into that role but this idea of how far to go on healthcare her the candidates want to expand coverage how they're going to do it. How many people would benefit how expensive it would be? The the details remain to be decided first first off. We have Bernie Sanders explaining his vision for Medicare for all is a human right not a privilege. I believe I will for that. The Dan Ta- talk us through this and this has become one of the defining elements of the primary so Bernie Sanders has campaigned for years on this idea of Medicare for all what's interesting is the plan he has is not actually Medicare it would be a souped up version of what Medicare currently is and that single payer plan that every American would be enrolled in the sanders campaign things that could lead to negotiating lower prices
Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.

Former Prosecutor Linda Fairstein Says 'When They See Us' 'Is Full Of Distortions'
"This Netflix series that has come out called when they see us. And it's about the central park joggers, the central park jogger and the central park, five. So this is long been a hot point of contention in New York City tunnel from famously called for the death penalty to be applied to the central park five. There's a group of five lack men, who were basically, accused of rape of a jogger. And then later there was DNA evidence, a person came forward and made an admission that he was the person who committed the rape only his DNA was found on the woman, the way that this has been taken by the press is that none of these other five people were involved in anything bad, and all of this was basically black men being railroad in New York City for no reason. Well, now Linda fairstein, who's a prosecutor in the case has a piece in the Wall Street Journal that is. It's pretty devastating to this narrative here's what she talked about. She says at about nine pm, April nineteenth nineteen thousand nine a large group of young men gathered on the corner of one hundred and ten th street and Fifth Avenue for the purpose of robbing and beating innocent people in central park. There are more than thirty riders the women in the win the woman known as the central park jogger Tricia, mainly was not the only victim, eight others were attacked, including two men were beaten so savagely that required hospitalization for head injuries, reporters and filmmakers have explored this story countless times from numerous perspectives. Almost always focusing on five attackers one female jogger but each has missed the larger picture of what happened that terrible night, a write in the dark that resulted in the apprehension of more than fifteen teenagers who set upon multiple victims that associate path Natasha's race confessed in two thousand two to the rape of malay-, and that the district attorney consequently, vacated the charges against the five after they had served their sentences had led some of these reporters and filmmakers to assume the prosecution had no basis upon which to charge the five suspects in nineteen eighty nine. So it is with filmmaker Annan's Guarany in the net flicks mini series, when they see us a series so full of destroy. Falsehoods is to be an outright fabrication. It shouldn't have been hard for Mr. Verney to discover the truth. The facts of the original case are documented in one hundred seventeen page decision by New York state supreme court Justice Thomas Galligan in sworn testimony, given in two trials and affirmed by two appellate courts, and in sworn depositions more than ninety five witnesses, including the five themselves. Instead, she has written and utterly false narrative involving an evil mastermind me falsely accused the five I was one of the supervisors who oversaw the team that prosecuted, the teenagers apprehended after that horrific night of violence, Mr.
"Hello. This is me. She yousef. And this is tell them I am. In twenty fifteen I went on a road trip from Chicago to Wisconsin. And we went like really far north. Like I think the nearest people to us were a hundred miles away, which now that I think about it was probably a dangerous situation. Anyway, it was stunning if you haven't been to Wisconsin, you're seriously missing out. So it was late summer like early fall. And as we get deeper into the night, it starts to get really chilly, kind of Chris, and in the middle of the night, I go out into the backyard of the house. We're staying and the night is so block that I had to just stand there for a second. Try to find my way. And after a while my eyes start to adjust and there's this brightness remember looking up at the sky, the stars were clear and more crowded than I had ever seen before. It was honestly like the stars where the crowd at a concert, and I was. Onset or something? And I swear I could see the curve of the sky, it was like I was wrapped in almost. It was so literally beyond my reach like forget figuratively. I felt so small in a good way. So the next morning, I'm sitting inside on the couch with my breakfast. The sun is, like, especially bright, the kind of right? That even if it's cold to kind of just warms you up. And there's the dust in the air and for a second. The sunlight, set this crowd of dust dancing. And I felt so small. My name is Vanessa all in the end. I am an astronomer. I think that is the primary way that identify myself when I, meet new people. Astronauts are on a lot of times ex military and engineers like they have survival skills versus strana mors are fabulous nerds. It's Uman to gaze up at the stars and contemplate the cosmos. There's a there's a Carl Sagan, quote, I'm probably paraphrasing at this point. It's not explaining science. Seems to me perverse, when you're in love, you want to tell the world. I grew up with my parents may data's from Pakistan. He moved to the US in the eighties. Horrible up getting. Okay. And my mom is from India, Mark from our message. Good. There. I have two sisters. We're very close knit family. We love hang out with each other like going home. It was always like the highlight of my day. My parents had this interesting parenting style, which I have started to now be more aware of I didn't have a bed time. I didn't have occurred few. I never had any like rules about how long it could stay on the computer or the or the TV or, or the phone, but it was kind of will lose things where if I wanted to do something by parents would be like that doesn't seem like such a good idea. And then I would kind of be like, oh, but I think it is. So they like, they'd say, well, go ahead, try it, and then I would try it, and it wouldn't be a good idea. And they come back like see. I feel like I'm humble Ryan about my parents really amazing people. When is engineers? I was a sophomore in college. My dad got extremely sick. So he was taking a medication for a rheumatoid arthritis treatment, the medicine was I N, H, I, E so Nisaan and it's known to be extremely toxic. We were not told that my dad was prescribed his medications, so he was told to take this six month course of I h and when he was done with the six months course than he could come back to start his Arthur treatment, well, five months in my dad's sorta getting extremely sick. I is getting very confused. And then one day he woke up and was just completely yellow like completely jaundiced. His is really his skin was yellow. And we took him to the to his primary didn't it turned out. He was having liver failure. Annan ver- when I heard that he was having liver failure. I didn't know what that meant, and I remember being scared, but not being sure why I was scared. A couple days after he started to get a lot worse. And there is one to remember it was the Saturday we were all home, and we had to do like basic errands, like grocery shopping. And we're all going to Costco, my favorite thing ever. And my dad was my dad was feed be used completely out of him. We started to get really concerned. So my mom colds, my dad's primary, who is also one of our good family friends. So he came by the evening, putting I remember who's putting on my dad's shoes for him. Like getting him ready to go to the hospital. And my dad was like kicking him in the face. And he eventually got my dad dressed enough to hospital. And like put him in the front seat of his car with a lot of struggle for my dad and drove him himself to to the hospital. NYU langone. Turned out that his liver was ninety eight percent necrosis, which means that ninety eight percent of his liver had died. It became very clear that he needed a new liver, and he needed a liver transplant.

I is getting very confused. And then one day he woke up and was just completely yellow like completely jaundiced. His is really his skin was yellow. And we took him to the to his primary didn't it turned out. He was having liver failure. Annan ver- when I heard that he was having liver failure. I didn't know what that meant, and I remember being scared, but not being sure why I was scared. A couple days after he started to get a lot worse. And there is one to remember it was the Saturday we were all home, and we had to do like basic errands, like grocery shopping. And we're all going to Costco, my favorite thing ever. And my dad was my dad was feed be used completely out of him. We started to get really concerned. So my mom colds, my dad's primary, who is also one of our good family friends. So he came by the evening, putting I remember who's putting on my dad's shoes for him. Like getting him ready to go to the hospital. And my dad was like kicking him in the face. And he eventually got my dad dressed enough to hospital. And like put him in the front seat of his car with a lot of struggle for my dad and drove him himself to to the hospital. NYU langone. Turned out that his liver was ninety eight percent necrosis, which means that ninety eight percent of his liver had died. It became very clear that he needed a new liver, and he needed a liver transplant. I just felt like as soon as, as soon as my dad was admitted hospital and this need for a transplant became a reality things kind of just felt completely different. And a couple of days into being in the hospital he fell into a coma. Apparently before my dad's slipped into the coma. He told the head transplant surgeon. Please help me get better because I have to take care of my family. I really was not processing like what was happening. Still going to all my classes I still hanging. All my problems, that's just kind of working on this autopilot mode, where I was going about my days, doing everything that I normally would going to my classes in the mornings, and they would take the six train down to NYU Langone and spend the rest of my day. There.
Rwanda genocide: Nation marks 25 years since mass slaughter
"Now today marks twenty five years since the start of the genocide in Rwanda which killed nearly a million people in just one hundred days in nineteen Ninety-four about eight hundred thousand people with slaughtered by ethnic Hutu extremists. They were targeting members of the minority Tutsi community as well as their political opponents, irrespective of their ethnic origin, the massacres mostly by gangs. Wielding machetes swept across the country groups of people were killed in their homes in churches in schools places where they sought shelter. The United Nations was heavily criticised for stepping back and the United States for turning a blind eye to the brutality in a desire to avoid intervention for years. After the genocide the US President Bill. Clinton and the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, both apologize to the victims for not attempting to prevent the atrocities that took place. It took a twenty year operation for UN backed court, the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda set up by the UN Security Council to bring some of the perpetrators to Justice. When our correspondent Ferdinand Amande is live in the in the capital of Rwanda Kigali an Ferdinand talkers through some of the events that will begin today. And then last I think over many days coming up. This as you mentioned was one hundred days of slaughter and on the twenty fifth anniversary. Rhonda begins a hundred days of mourning. It'll start this morning at the Kigali genocide memorial. We are more than a quarter of million people are bury their president pork Gama with other dignitaries from several countries of confirmed. The attendance will be there to light 'em memorial genocide flame after us. They will have a walk from Kigali convention center. All the way to the Amohoro national stadium. Amore is a place that is translated to mean peace. These we are many people's was shelter during that period of the genocide, and they're going to have some sort of commemoration just remember the twenty five years going on since the bloodshed death and plunder where the country is always going on. Now, mostly I also understand that during this period for the over one hundred days for seven days, then run that will mostly be very solemn. Calm. No loud music. No, loud shouting, even in some cases. None of the English football is very popular. Here will be washed trade to lay low because apparently any form of filtration may be seen as an insult to the memory of those who died for the next days. I'm told Rhonda stays really really come to remember the dead, what of moves towards reconciliation. How does that look to you twenty-five years on? What Rhonda has made great strides. I would say ever since the genocide of festival prison polka gunman is money to govern is the country to be largely peaceful compared to his neighbors even ruined weather with the killing this variance table, but right now in Rhonda, there's generally are a lot of sense of peace at the same time ever since the genocide ended a prisoner. They the government would try to build houses for those who love the property goes a little plant during that period and outspoken, some people say that been so every mainly on governments apart right now also witness pick the people here in wonder, nobody identify themselves as who were to see which are the main communities here, they say, I am Wendy's. So there's a sense of say that the fact that the two separate themselves, according to Freiburg's or or profiling that is the biggest genocide. And that he's so they private best make sure that they it infrastructures as one and behaved generally like that. So those are some of the things I've seen so far. But also spoke to one of the organizations that monitors jealous, but they say that it trauma levels actually going up because more and more people picking out about what is going on. And now, it's appears at is a lot more healing going

So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything. This was another tumultuous day in British politics. Parliament was headed toward a stork vote on a deal for Brexit tomorrow, but it faced almost certain defeat. So today Prime Minister Theresa may pull the plug. We will defer the vote changes tomorrow. Not proceed to divide the house at this time that leaves the UK uncertain about how it will leave the European Union as the March twenty ninth deadline for the country's exit draws closer NPR Lunnon correspondent Frank Langfitt is with us again. Hi, Frank hairy rough day for the prime minister. She's been working on this deal to leave the EU for two years. Her ministers, and she had been saying the vote would definitely take place tomorrow. How does she explain this about face? We'll all right. She said what everybody kind of knew. And that is she did not have the votes, which is an understatement. People thought she could have lost this by up to a hundred votes, which would put her would have put her job in even more jeopardy than it already. Is. It's not clear when or if she can actually get the support she needs, and there's no new date for votes. So things are really really uncertain right now where does this leave prime minister May's plan for exiting the European Union a plan that had a lot of support from other European countries? Yeah, they signed off on it. She has said she's going to go back to the European Union to explain. In why members of parliament of Liker deal, which by the way, the EU knows all this. But the U has said it was not gonna reopened this agreement. So it puts certainly prime minister, very difficult position. Donald to- skis the present of European Council. He said today, we are ready to discuss how to facilitate UK ratification that could mean some reassuring language, but definitely not reopening. This thing we have less than four months to go before the UK leaves the EU, and it's not really clear how this is gonna play out. This could go well past Christmas. We're just not sure we'll remind us. What makes us deal so unpopular? Why do so many people in parliament oppose it? Yeah. Well, if the UK and the EU can't figure out a way to avoid building new customs posts on the island of Ireland is we've discussed before one scenario would have Northern Ireland ending up in a much closer customs arrangement with the European Union than with the kingdom. Of course, the United Kingdom, the Northern Ireland is a part of the United Kingdom, and the UK wouldn't have any unilateral way to end this. So there are. That they could get stuck in this arrangement for a long time. Now, many British politicians understandably see this as undermining a basically the union of the United Kingdom now. Nigel Dodds is deputy leader of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party. This is what he had to say. In the house of Commons today. Chenoweth get it by the withdrawal agreement legally binding tax is unacceptable to this house G count pretend going onto fending the when she knows that if the vote taken tomorrow, it will be overwhelmingly defeated so Frank explain what options to resume has. Now. It seems unlikely that she can get the support to pass this deal. And the EU says they're not open to negotiating a different deal. What can she do a lot of people think that she's playing for time? I was talking to a non men, and he's professor of European politics at King's College in London. And he thinks what she's going to do is go back to Brussels and get the EU basically dispel out that they won't give a better deal to any different prime may. Minister and that could help her fend off her many potential challengers. And then what you might do is turn around and pressure. Members of parliament in basically, say, you know, if you don't take this deal my deal Eurisko, leaving the U with no deal at all leading to an economic calamity. And here's what Annan Menin set if she decides that actually not going to have this until January that really doesn't increase the pressure because we're getting to the points at which no deal is looking increasingly likely just on the steak because we're getting so close to that legal day to this wedding about that point. It will be this deal will no deal just briefly Frank. How much of a threat is this to prime minister as leadership, it's tough Brexit tears in her own party been threatening for months to challenger. Labor's also threatened, but it says it's not going to call a no-confidence vote unless it knows it has a good chance of winning which doesn't at the moment. NPR's london.
