"Really and that also includes myself and so it was really important for me to do work that i enjoy doing but also to help other people enjoy what they're doing whether it's teaching whether it's parenting it is finding know what their passion is in. So yeah this just very organically happened and when you know you're y no matter what happens situations can change what changed for me and for everyone was the pandemic in the quarantine. Everyone went home. The teachers went home. The went home and the parents became the primary teachers with their children. Twenty four seven and they really really struggled and really didn't know what to do. And as i saw especially really through social media. We're all home. I really saw an opportunity to help. But it's been really exciting for failing and just validating my life's purpose to get messages in every day come. It's messages saying that. I have changed people's lives and their relationships with their children. And that's what it's all about really feel like that's what i meant to do. I'm so glad you're out there doing most. You're very much needed. I think right now that some people have children that are in care centres and in preschool right. And some people don't so there's there's both out there right you said that your centers are open. Have been open for awhile. Yes all of the centers in my district. Nine schools are open and have been open. There was school that closed for a couple of weeks but all the others have been open. So what i want to ask you about is a question that i received often from parents. What do we do. What do you do. And what can parents do. When a child is having difficulty in these situations the maybe they're disruptive or they are not following directions. They're not quote listening. They are having difficulty making friends and thriving socially in the classroom. What do you look out. What do you consider. I get a lot of questions about this. Honestly probably every parent's worst or one of their worst nightmares to hear feedback from the teachers or the people caring for your children. Your child is having problems. And they're hitting or they're being disruptive or they're not following directions there a problem in the group. So what do you do when you come across this with a child. What do you look at. So the very first thing is observed to really understand. Why the behaviors happening a lot of people. Focus on just the behavior so you mentioned hitting a lot of people will approach. The situation like heading is the problem. I'm here to tell you and it's going to shock. A lot of people that hitting is generally not the problem. there's an underlying black scale or underlying social emotional challenge and the result of that is the hitting and so we have to as the caregivers at home at skoll really observe especially when these behaviors are happening and really a lot of data is their time of the day. The behaviors happening. Like what are the patterns was happening before what's happening during what's happening after to really identify what that underlying problem or underlying challenge is that the child is having in these situations so for hitting a lot of times. The problem is lack of ability to express themselves or they don't have the language to solve the problem. Maybe it's over toy so the child might be hitting because they wanna toy and the way that they know how to get thanks to a physical means right and it's not their fault and a lot of times we get so frustrated you know like you say none of our emotions even as the adult or wrong now as adults we have to in these situations manage our emotions during this time and respond thoughtfully so that we can be in a place where we can really help them as opposed to making this situation worse. Because if we're not able to manage our emotions and then how do we expect to teach the child to not just react emotionally. When they have a problem that they can't solve and most of the talking is going to happen now in the heat of the moment. Most of the learning is going to happen when you're talking about it later and so that's something that parents and teachers can do to kind of tell the story of what happened prior and talk about ways to handle the problem that they're having now. The other thing too is developmentally appropriate expectations a lot of times. We're expecting a two year old to share when they physiologically cannot do that. There were expecting wait for long periods of time without getting antsy and moving around and so sometimes we don't have developmentally appropriate expectations here also be the emotional climate and the room energy really does affect the emotions which affects the behavior right so for teachers constantly saying no no no no no and is yelling at the children. That's going to create a lot of stress in the room. And then i'm more likely there's going to be biding. There's going to be heading now. A lot of what. I've talked about up to. This point has been things in the classroom and know there's parents out there like okay.

Why Lionel Messi Wants Out of FC Barcelona
"Sam borden six years ago we were in Brazil together and my facial hair situation was not good. I mean that isn't what stands out for me Pablo but. I think I. Think we all have different memories of experiences. SAMBORN is a global sports correspondent for ESPN and kind enough to forget the unfortunate beard I grew for five weeks while we were covering the two thousand fourteen World Cup it's actually kind of funny right I mean now World Cup in Brazil Lionel Messi was a big part of the story there and obviously is a big part of the story today to. We got to see Leo Messi in a World Cup final Sam and you fast forward six years and I bring you here today because Messi announced last week that he wants to leave F c Barcelona after a nearly seventeen year stint.

He is not just a generational star he is a star that defines a sport. When you talk about people that are known all over the world for being absolute craftsmen absolute artisans at what they do messy is that guy? Governor. From the magical. Curiel who knows? He's a little guy from Argentina, who is an absolute wizard with a soccer ball? Hey, just tonsure. RIP UP OF REASON A perennial. He's magical. He's calculating. He's one of the most creative players with sport has ever seen. I said. I think one of the things that has always made him even bigger than just. As, see and other sports these his diminutive stature, he's not a giant he's not the one of these massive bodies. I've been in front of him several times and I'm five ten and I looked down on him quite a bit. To me that's what makes him during and beloved by so many people is that he kind of Rome's among giants and somehow finds a way to succeed in a way that no other player ever has coming up with gold medal messy. He made Barcelona. The juggernaut that it is today and him moving on that say massive seismic shift, not just in soccer but in sports.

How Can Hair Be Tougher than Razor Blades?
"If. You're a human who grows hair and occasionally attempts to remove some of it. There's a decent chance that you stood over the bathroom sink or in the shower and wondered how is it possible that your hair can dull a razor blade hair is notoriously strong for its thickness but come on it's stainless steel razor blade that's gotta be stronger than a little old strand of hair right? It turns out scientists have wondered the same thing, and now we've got an answer and that answer is heterogeneity of which is when in. Composition isn't completely uniform. But let's back up. So hair is indeed softer than steel. You might have noticed this yourself. It's about fifty times softer than these stainless steel used in razor blades and yet the razor blades we use for shaving get dull fairly quickly a team of scientists MIT's Department of Materials, science and engineering wanted to find out why and their results were published in August of Twenty Twenty and the Journal. Science. Researchers Gianluca were scholley started by shaving his own facial hair with disposable razors and taking those blades into the lab to be examined with scanning electron microscope. He found that the edges of the metal weren't rounding are being worn down as you might expect rather they were chipping and cracking. so He created a mechanized shaving apparatus in the lab for a more controlled testing and he built it to fit inside that electron microscope. He used hair from himself in his lab mates and blades from commercially available razors. What were scholley and his co authors on the study found was the chips were more likely to occur in the blade's edge when the hair was able to bend before being cut by the blade. So the team went even further to create computer simulations with more variations, different hair different cutting angles, different directions of force being applied and different materials used in the blade. They found that the chips appeared under three conditions when the blade approach to the hair at an angle when the blade was heterogeneous composition and when the hair met the blade at a weak point. Heterogeneous means that the blaze material is not perfectly uniform. Thus, there are microscopic imperfections in the steel that allow ships to happen when it comes into contact with something even something relatively soft as a hair. The presence of those tiny cracks in the material increases stress to the rest of the material meaning that when there's one chip, there will be more chips raking apart that fine edge and resulting in a dull blade.

seven areas and as a kid because I grew up in Utah and I had to be a woman like I was so scared of anyone finding out that I was quote unquote secretly a boy I mean like you said I definitely started dressing more girly and feminine Lee and that was more for my own shame in need to fit in and not be discovered let my secret out or whatever the gender binary uncle so ingrained in our society that we never stop to think about it until somebody comes along to make you question that and if you're thinking that I'm the exception an anomaly an out liar intersex people represent around two percent of the population that's the same percentage as dramatic red heads we're not new or rare we're just invisible we've existed throw every culture and history yes we never talk about it in fact a lot of people might not know that their intersex a friend of mine found out last year in his fifties the executive director of interactive she's the leading organization for intersection right here in the US she found out she was intersex age forty one her doctors found out when she was fifteen but they didn't tailor they lied and said that she had cancer because that seems like an easier option than finding out she wasn't fully a woman it's kind of thing happens a lot where intersex people are lights you are kept in the dark about our bodies it's rare to meet and interceptors and that hasn't been operated on and often times these surgeries are done to improve intersex kids lives but they usually end up doing the opposite causing more harm both physical and emotional I'm not saying that doctors are bad it's just that we live in a society that causes some doctors to fix those of us who don't fit their definition of normal are not problems that need to be fixed we just live in a society that needs to be enlightened only if you could go back in time what do you wish had been different about the way you were treated as an intersex person what I really wanted was somebody saying Hey like this is going to be okay like no big deal and it's not make that life changing because that's the thing if I hadn't had all the societal experiences it wouldn't be that big of a deal even small things like learning at an early age so most people are boys or girls but some people are in between and kind of learning that would have been life changing because that would've meant I belong to somewhere and as a kid I never really belonged anywhere because I didn't belong with the girls and I didn't belong with the boys because that's all we knew and so if I had somewhere that I would fit in that I belonged and I didn't just constantly feel like an impostor that would have been huge you know I was actually there when you gave your Ted talk and I have to say your town right now is just so different like you were so sassy and funny and you're like damn ballsy and like you know you can't help but laugh because it's what you're talking about and there's this moment in the Ted talk I remember it so vividly your voice broke and you looked so surprised and you even said I think I didn't think I was gonna get emotional and I feel like at that moment I remember thinking like oh there's a crack there and I hear it in your voice now and I I wonder if that's what's happening is you're exploring that crack and that that most if if that's the case that's sounds like a lot of work you're making me cry no it's okay yeah I think that's the issue is that when you take humans out of the equation especially in a medical capacity it leaves a lot of trauma unfortunately it's been within the last month that I've started really I'm trying to dive deeper into that trauma and I didn't realize how much I held in my body he hi it's a lot but I also think like you said to play can correct we can sit here and laugh about it that's massive because for so long I couldn't talk to anyone about it and I'm aware how much like how awful that is and how much that hurt they don't feel that her anymore which is really good and I think that's part of what has come from being able to laugh and talk and be very open is you know I was able to go from not telling anyone to shouting on the rooftops and you know like it was just so for Emily Quinn you can find her full talk at Ted dot com on the show today ideas on the biology of sex I'm a new summer roadie and you're listening to the Ted radio hour from NPR Barry blitt started his life in Montreal and then he became an editorial cartoonist at the magazine The New Yorker and then he became an editorial cartoonist who just won a

Multi-Tasking Staff Will Be The Future Of Our New World
"To day six of the lockdown here in Malaysia. You can see. The facial hair. Seems to be going rottweiler. The game quite happy about that. A few more wants than other colors. But that's just reality. We're I'm I guess thinking a lot about what happens when we come out of these what the world looks like on the other side of these because I do think that many people are probably at this stage. Still underestimating how significant. The changes are going to be to the way in which we leave. I just don't think it's going to be business as usual whether that's in three months six months twelve months. I still don't think we be get back to the world that we're in today. One of the things that I think will change dramatically or one of the things that would at least have you better prepared to survive in this brave. New World comes on the other side of this covered. Nineteen crisis is the ability to multi task multi skill. Because if you think about the way the world's been operating for the last several decades I guess we've been a lot more specialists. We've really narrowed down to specific skills being from a trade perspective. It used to be that a house. Builder would build a house these days. You've got specific skills for the woodwork for the electric work for the Talwar for the plumbing work once upon a time. And you know if you go to sort of rural areas it's still the one person that does allies things if you go to a Western world. Everything's very specialized. And I think part of the D. globalization which I think is going to happen. These GONNA be less ability to call on specialist help from outside. So I reckon if you WANNA get yourself geared up for the future for this this brave new world that comes on the side of this crisis I think. Multitasking and Multi Skilling is the way to go so we might have his therapist who is also a waiter in a restaurant also able to check in reception in a hotel scenario. I I think that's probably reality. Certainly for a good couple of years on the other side of these as various businesses stopped.

I'm sure for the future of the company because as you mentioned this is going to allow you to focus on some things that are in your core wheelhouse right core skill set so you tell us a little bit about that and maybe for folks that are listening in for the first time. They didn't catch the first interview. What is oblong? And what the hell are you up to write our story to date last last week? Since last year on so oblong industries. Now simply oblong INC is a is a technology company that I started in two thousand six two thousand four really two thousand sixteen incorporated as Oblong really to put into commercial and real world practice a set of ideas instead of I think fundamental ideas that I've been chasing since the late early late eighties early nineties around the idea of user interface as an understudied under acknowledge but absolutely primal and critical bits of the technological and digital experience. One that again as suggested you know hasn't seen nearly enough development hasn't seen nearly enough innovation and that from my point of view And into this later actually represents further stagnation in the field of you. I represents a kind of existential threat to humankind. I know that sounds very grand. But we'll talk about that anyway. I pursued that at MIT at the media lab through the number of degrees in a number of years that displeased my parents greatly. And then I pulled that set of ideas into the film minority report which was just a tremendous opportunity to place the ideas that I thought were most important kind of in front of a a very large number of human is to kind of implicitly. Asked the question. What do you think about a future? Where computation doesn't necessarily mean a mouse and keyboard. And I guess the third step was that partly in response to the two very enthusiastic both public and corporate reception of those ideas as depicted in the film. I started to oblong to turn them into reality today. Oblong principal activities are are to really on the product side. We make a thing called. Mezzanine is a product family of in room and remote collaboration tools. It is a collaboration tool that that word is kind of debauched pointed it is one of those words it so so much. Use that. It's kind of lost a lot of being but mezzanine and oblong means collaboration the way I made it which is real collaboration. Like what would you do in the real world if you had to work with a bunch of other people? And that's what Nixon got so it's much more about the content of documents. The applications the data getting that up on a lot of screens in addition to the faces. Which is what everyone else means by leveraging phases invoices only essentially and. Maybe it singled out as he says no really. The value of the work resides in a stuff the data the APPs the applications the documents images whatever and more than one at the same time. So it's not enough just to see you know the powerpoint heaven help us. Let's not see that at all. Ideally if we're working what we WANNA see spreadsheet but not just alone we want to see the spreadsheet next to the project plan next to the CAD model next to the you know the social media streaming analysis of all of the bits and pieces that make up the kind of high mind of the work process if you will. That's mezzanine today it's deployed. There's one thousand deployments literally on six continents. We haven't gone down and Arcada yet but maybe someday the rest ice shelf. It hasn't completely dried up and fallen off. We'll see one McMurdo station. Probably has a few people in it and then the other side of the House is both the call g speak. That is kind of the minority report operating system effectively and a set of incredibly talented designers and engineers who can build custom solutions usually around data navigation and kind of joint collaborative understanding of massive problems spaces for domain specific applications verse particularly customers. Who want to go really deep with this idea of you. I think it's so fascinating about this is. This is moving us to a place where we're going to be able to show each other what we mean instead of using. Just small mouth noises. It's going to move us to a place of communication where it's collaborative in a sense of we're going to be able to communicate for perhaps the first time because we think that we're communicating now but everyone's internal dictionary doesn't necessarily match up to our own people define words different ways things like that so this takes us to around beyond taxed beyond just pictures. Ensue combining them together so almost like a more perfect logos right. I love that infects with your permission. We put it into practice over on the PR side of the House immediately billboard. It's great stuff. Yeah but I think you're exactly right. I mean it's not that language is underpowered. It's tremendously efficacious in. Its wired into some of the deepest but more recently developed parts of our brain. But there's another whole side. That's spatial pictorial diagram. Matic almost and I love your show because that's really what it is so the act of collaborative seeing having everyone's sitting room or in a bunch of connected rooms and see exactly the same thing at the same time the same way with the other side of this of the C- Sees to show and in some sense. I think by by starting oblong by by creating mezzanine kind of compensating for the fact that although I can write although I have literacy in the literal version literal sense of that word. I'm illiterate when it comes to dry. My son is a phenomenal artist. And his magic for me to watch what he can express just outfit out the the business end of a silas. But I can't do that in I think in a way This is for me. Mezzanine and related technologies are like a brain projector away to to get out the ideas that I have in my mind. That are not desks. Not Mind everyone's line best described by language so I really dig your analysis there and I think it's something that you lose to it earlier. Existential threats are not going to be solved until we can translate the visions that we have for solutions because Thera so much more nuanced and sophisticated than just our small mouth voices would allude to. They are almost certain people in certain artists have been said to see an entire song or see a completed film. And it's you know we don't have the mind brain interfaces yet but I feel like this is a very strong step towards being able to starting to collaborate on these existential challenges right and that's a it's giving everyone kind of you know. Augmented communication tools to get on the same page and we all have weaknesses right so this is a way to start bridging the gap. So it's exactly right. I think the time is now right. I mean the the set of challenges both in a perilous and mortal and exciting and opportunistic that confronted in the twentieth century are existed a scale and a sculpted is unprecedented. Human history. Like this just more complicated stuff. We got US solve and that we should be solving and we're not going to do it of the sort of lone isolated genius is one that I think we can. I would love to get rid of here in. This century doesn't individuals are capable of doing great things individually but not again at the scale and the scope that the world's biggest problems need

"McNamara yes so Ted Cruz see you should ensure you you should have shave the facial hair so you didn't follow the guidelines the recommendation that that that men shave their beards yeah remember the supposed the the theory that if you have facial hair yeah it's more likely that the corona virus will stay on the beard right it's just we never liked his facial hair that's with no I don't I don't have the facial hair I just want to make a dry white white what do you care I don't know it irritated me really yes it's still got the beer doesn't yeah yeah but then some things don't irritate me like what like actually bigger than the corona viruses we go as people whining about the time change everybody's whining about it still doesn't sound like a clock maybe a bomb I you know it's actually I like it you know why mmhm it reminds me that I have to change the batteries in my smoke detectors otherwise I'd never do it and then the worst thing for me is how many times has that happened your lay down to go to sleep and you're really tired and just as you lay down that will and I have a low battery beef is a lot of I. five or six smoke detectors from it's impossible to sleep impossible and then the I've I am and I have pretty tall ceilings so it means I've got to go with that point and get the latter I don't change the battery because I'm normally too dark I just rip it out yeah exactly that day and then they got I already got I got four five should be a big deal that I change the battery the next day I hate that one time it went off on my fourteen foot ceilings mmhm now thank goodness I have one of those industrial X. ladders that have the wide no it's spread out with the wide ladder legs at the bottom mmhm but it's still carbon in social regularly there in thirteen feet up rocking back and forth like I'm gonna die hiring electricity can Marquardt well yeah well they are hard wired in there but there's a you know they're all hard wired inside they're all connected together the the the battery back up that it's a battery backup yeah and when that goes it just ripped out yeah not soon so that's what that's what I like that's why I like the the time change has hit other than that it doesn't really matter whether you have you know when you live I'm trying to think is is it here yes here were sometimes it doesn't get dark til quarter after nine or nine thirty right your dog is not I don't it's not that late in the evening you may okay maybe it was when I live maybe it's when I lived in in in Florida where I live right at the edge of the the time change right yeah and it just stayed so light so long and it was N. now the bogus part of it unite we're working together when it happened member when Congress we're gonna save energy and we said stop it yeah you're not going to save energy stop saying that don't do it in there remember they moved it earlier and then later in the fall as well yeah and they serve and then they found out the year later well we're not saving energy but we passed the bills so you can't go back mmhm and a lot of people are saying let's do it now what I want to do is now this is this is up against selfishness I want the country to do it as a whole yeah because the state Stewart likes happening right now it messes up people getting our show yeah really selfish reasons Marco Rubio is one of those and the Senate that's pushing for it president says he's on board he's okay what do they call that it was hash tag lock the clock nine yes so I'm I don't think we're gonna see that happen all right I wouldn't mind it I don't care if they do it but I don't I don't think the government should be met manipulating the clock all currency rightly that were look we're used to manipulation of the currency well because that's okay the the the problem with the whole clock things you got arguments on both sides and that's never gonna stop the one argument is kids going to school in the dark in the media right not gonna win that one nope sorry nope it's for the children you don't win that one right but the fact of the matter is that you can't manipulate the amounts such no human can manipulate the amount of sun exposure that we get and they believe that well we can change how we behave in terms of energy and everything else that and then of course they found out that that wasn't true you know it wasn't her yeah it's there's really no good reason to do it there is no good reason to manipulate the clock but you're not gonna stop the arguments on both side of that side of it except for the end and I'll I'll back this up except for the children going to school in the dark because remember now kids have off if it's too cold right we never had off because it was too cold no no ever no never make only reason when we were young and we liked it that way the only reason we ever got off is not because I had to walk to school and when I was in junior high and high schools it was just it was that you would get a ride to school if you were up over a mile in right I was we were right at about nine ends nine point five tenths of a mile mile away from school so just under a mile so it didn't matter if we had a walk through ten feet of snow it matter if you had a walk through it it's only if the buses can get through if the buses could not get through then we got school off they don't care about us no it could have been minus ten degrees below zero with five feet of snow if they plow the streets then you went to school but now we are much more concerned about the children well so you're never gonna you're never going to change because of that or eat big because that that just is not an argument you can win in any government house well you're you're not gonna you're not gonna do that and you're also not going to change the hours that the kids go to school except for possibly to extend them you know so it's not like they're going to push back they would push it back at a certain part of the year it's it's not going to that argument the the the two sides of the argument or are not going to change so I don't know you're right that's not happened so it's not gonna happen in Congress because of that you know Rubio's looking out for Florida yeah okay well everybody outside of Florida doesn't get out of hand the farmers South Carolina change was a Saddam change recently was it wasn't I don't remember yeah there's a couple states it just you know down the state they can have their debate but again you start messing with it and it's it just becomes you know again the same argument that we've had for years I don't know how they got it done several years ago where they changed it you know to earlier in S. bring in later in the fall energy yeah that which which which would know which goes nowhere no it went nowhere but that's how they justified it then the whole energy thank might now working this shift my favorite time of the year working day shift for sleep mmhm is winter right because with the days are shorter and therefore I get when I go to sleep in the morning it's dark and when I go to sleep in the afternoons Leslie twice a day before I come in it's getting dark more is dark when you get into November and December right and so I actually like that the best but yesterday you know I've ever I got home from my trip and was up doing things all day in about four o'clock it was as bright as it could be I lay down and I sleep by four thirty so for me I'm able to do it I haven't I gotta get those dark shades you got to start shades in the house yeah yeah I've always used them I've never had a the you know the the I think again you know get getting back to the old legislative part of it I just don't think you're going to get something like that done done Marco Rubio Marco Rubio is not going to get it done for sure I could be wrong by the way again I wouldn't mind if it were up to me but not so one final question here what in the world change Romney's mind where he came around to say okay now we cried I thank now we get a subpoena for hunter Biden lives I suspect it was a conversation with Lindsey Graham I suspect it's probably happened a couple times is Lindsey Graham is the one that just talked about that the past you know he's one you know that the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee that's something they would want to look into we'll see where it goes maybe there was more evidence presented maybe it may be some put somebody on the committee including Lindsey Graham said here's here's what we have we'll have something solved much out there again the point we pounded on Romney on Friday was you can't make the case that you don't want to look at hunter Biden because it may be perceived as political and then vote to impeach this president right you can do that right on in obviously such an unbelievably political in Denver by the Democrats Macross the board when it came to everything that they did in the investigation without question and then just say we're not hunter Biden we just said was the height of hypocrisy and reprehensible and all of a sudden by the time we get to Saturday Mitt Romney's like okay hunter Biden okay we get a subpoena on him and I'm thinking to myself all right who had the talk with them and what evidence did they show had to be something I I I think fairly significant then that would my guess is Lindsey Graham's office they probably call them and and probably told him what with what he thought I'm either they were going to see or learn from from any kind of testimony and it or maybe something that that Mitt Romney was not aware of coming from the Attorney General at some point of but it was a it was a pretty quick turnaround yeah it was right now I'm sure the response he god could not even been positive in in Utah but who knows we you know we saw how bout how what Sanders did in Utah mmhm right currently the far left is alive and well in Utah yeah yeah definitely yeah but we'll see what comes of that this subpoena and then if there's anything actionable where they can make a referral any kind of criminal referral man the Democrats don't want that plan out this summer I guess by now you look at all the forecast right now and by his the guy yeah what what's the what was the final one overnight ninety one ninety one ninety one percent from four byte that Biden will have and it looks well over the the mark for the halfway mark somewhere around twenty three twenty four hundred delegates going in to convention hits that mark that well actually once he gets nineteen ninety one and above yeah and Sanders is that what you said one one percent one percent chance while he'll be the nominee why yeah I mean go back just one week ago two weeks ago two weeks ago yeah really two weeks ago yeah remember nobody's ever mention it nobody and nobody wanted by nobody Democrats were and they still don't want by it's just I believe that they look at it they say there's just no other choice right because Sanders proved himself to be unelectable by being a communist well so get this I had a theory that yeah let's elect Bernie be the fall guy back when it looked like Bernie was going to be the guy but it's actually better to let Biden be the fall guy if they know there's no chance real chance of beating trump you let Biden be the fall guy Bernie's got the far left on his side he's got a see the party needs.

Where are all the Asian Beardsmen?
"In November of twenty seventeen filmmaker Justin. Chang decided agrout his facial hair for the first time I had never tried to grow out my facial hair before because I was just scared to do so like I wasn't sure how it's GonNa turn out you know. My Dad actually has a pretty boss mustache. And he's known as the Asian Guy with the mustache but I didn't know if I had heard of those genes just in his Chinese American and he says people always treated his dad's moustache like an exception to the norm. A lot of Asian. People were impressed that he could grow it out. On a lot of non Asian people read more impressed and sort of I think I signed him like these masculine values. That a lot of Asian American men MM stereotypically are not granted I think part of that too is because he grew up in Tennessee and Texas and in the sal you know facial hair was even more of a signal. Oh masculinity down there and it helped him get by email. Think that something like phase. Here's that big of a deal but like everything communicates. Justin didn't go up in the south like his dad ad. But he's from San Bernardino California where they're also wasn't a very big Asian community just an always has some scruff but he had never let his facial hair grow now in his late twenties he was about to travel across the country to film a documentary. I found my own production company called J school and we focus on telling stories of underrepresented represented people in other words people caller women and the Lgbtq community and movember provided him with an excuse movember also known as no shave. November is an annual event where men are encouraged to grow mustaches for the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues. The Movember Foundation a global men's health a charity which began in two thousand three has always focused on educating man about prostate cancer. Anticipation cancer but in twenty seventeen they expanded their mission to include spreading awareness about mental health issues and suicide prevention in issue that was really meaningful to Justin quick onto warning. There's a short mention of suicide coming. Yeah I had a friend when I was younger. Who took her life and it really is what I attributed sparking my career path onto a creative journey and it was my only outlet when I I was younger to write in sort of tell stories as a coping mechanism from when my friend died so when I saw that Movember had expanded its causes to also covering suicide aside if I like the perfect kind of aligning of the stars that I want to try going on? Facial hair was 'cause I believed in and since he was on the road working on his film there there was no one around the laugh at me if it look bad so he started growing at his facial. Hair Okay Caroline. I think this is a good time to admit that we don't have much personal experience. Dance with facial hair right ADA and we're also not Asian American men but we've decided to explore this topic Asian American men and facial hair. Because we've heard it's a thing he's like kind of a thing right now. It's definitely think there was even this article called. Why Asians Dread Movember about difficulties? Some Asian men have growing facial higher. I laughed because I get it. I understand because I know that. Some dudes can't you know what I mean just like hey some dudes like me aren't six feet tall. You know what I mean. It's like you're dealt a hand play it. I do think that there is something very specific about men feeling like they can do anything that that they see other men being able to do. I know some Very Very Astute East Asia gentlemen and if I'm really breaking down what I feel too was them. It's probably jealousy and breaking you know whether jealousy comes from this idea that they can fit into Western perceptions of masculinity better than I can also. It's important to question when you hear the phrase. He's Asian men and facial hair. Do you think of East Asian men Southeast Asian men South Asian men. These communities can have very different issues regarding facial the hair I grew up in a six. I don't have a choice. Beer's become such a hip thing so for me. It's very interesting to observe because I keep a beard for very different reasons. Both to my parents were really worried about me going airports because I mean I'm a brown dude with a beard people get uncomfortable. I can see it in old y people's faces when I am boarding a plane so this is our investigation. What's the vocabulary we don't know what does that have? A Moustache flavor saver. Chinstrap is just like when it goes your sideburns. Connect your cheekbones connect your Chin and how do other people feel about their facial hair. This is something that loves those bugging let me about to because she was so good looking back in the day but first. Let's go back to Justin so he's on the road traveling across the country doing interviews for a documentary series called ritual which is about NFL players and their pre-game superstition and he's also a few weeks into his facial. Missile Hair journey by week three like I had a pretty good moustache. I was pretty sure wasn't able to grow a full beard. I was manicuring it the best I could. He's googling photos those of Johnny Depp. Michael B Jordan and Robert Downey junior to get inspiration on how to style his facial hair into a goatee one day. He was in Denver Filming. Maria's Thomas a a superstar wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who also happen to be doing movember for the first time and he actually flies out a barber from la every every couple of weeks to do his hair and he was doing well for the first time too and his barber was giving him shit basically for being like him. Ed Others Asian duties grown up way better than you can. You can't beat the Asian Guy. So how did that make Justin fail. I dig any offense to it even though like it clearly had racial overtones overtones because I get what he was saying like. They didn't expect me to have such a full mustache. Goatee and this Guy Thomas. WHO's like obviously way tougher for the Niamh as an NFL player? He could barely grow the peach fuzz. It was just kind of a very self aware moment where you're like. Damn I can't handle a tackle or run. The forty yard dash or catch a touchdown in the end zone or win the super bowl ring like he can but for damn sure I cannot gross facial hair this might sound like a nice happy ending of Justin's the number story but it's just the beginning he soon finds out that not everyone has positive reactions to his facial hair one of my friends who will remain nameless she goes. How's your new former birth control but we'll come back to them later so we've learned not the ability or inability to go facial hair can be a source of insecurity or pride for certain men men but for most it's still purely aesthetic choice just like I put my hair in a ponytail or choose whether to wear makeup a certain way for a lot of men facial hairs away the former identity through their appearance?

My beard hair is like as thick as wire. It feels like wires. You're coming out of my face from every possible poor. It's pretty intense.

The Case Of Harry Harris And South Korea
"Today a reminder of the importance of faith and the smallest decisions when you're representing your country abroad take the case of Harry Harris. Who probably never thought it was anything wrong with having a moustache until so what is he arrived in South Korea as ambassador? It is fair to say. The country's population was unimpressed with his facial hair which they interpreted as an insult to his hosts. How could you navigate a diplomatic minefield? Like that. We've got some advice now. From Lewis Lukens himself a former. US Ambassador and with me now in the studio Mr Nice to Harris's sin apparently was to remind South Korea of the eight Japanese Governor General who ruled the territory under occupation. All of whom had the mustache. They you suspect that probably wasn't his intention when he grew it i. I'm sure it was not his intention to offend. His Korean hosts Although that said it would seem to me. The prudent thing to do at this point would be just to get rid of it. Because it's become a distraction. I think there are some serious issues in the. US South Korean relationship and this mustache of the ambassadors has become sort of an easy target for people in South Korea. Who are unhappy with more serious policy issues? I think this is the thing is they runs the risk. The mustache is almost a proxy because South Korea very unimpressed by Donald Trump's demand for the country to pay more for hosting list thousands of US troops Mr Harris very supportive of the president's policy on that so rather than take on the president over demand for five billion dollars all is why not say. I don't respect us because you sent this man with a moustache. Well exactly and you know. And the mustache does hearken back to Japanese colonial days in Korea Korea. And let's not forget that Mr Harris is half Japanese. So I'm sure that that plays into this reaction on the part of the South Koreans But again I think this is a proxy for more serious policy differences over president. Trump's demanded the Koreans pay more to host US troops et Cetera et CETERA. Now presumably when when when a new ambassador is appointed they they all give an a sort of cultural briefing to prepare them. Arrival in the country. Where you you you were an ambassador? Did you get A to get a cultural briefing on. Senegal was first of all ambassadors. Get a three week We call charm school so it's a three week crash. Course in how to be a diplomat in Basseterre now half the people who go through that or less than half these days are career ambassadors such as I was who've had twenty five to thirty years of preparation operation for the job and then the other group are non-career ambassadors like Mr Harrison South Korea. Who have never done this kind of work before? So obviously the three weeks is more more important for them. In addition to that visit three weeks. Yes you get intense cultural studies about the country that you're going to before I went to Senegal had language classes. This is I spent a lot of time with the Senegalese French instructor who not didn't just teach me language in reinforced French which was quite rusty. That point right but but gave me cultural studies along the way so part of it is sort of things that you wouldn't necessarily You know as an American know about the country going to where you you could accidentally put your foot in with your house right and look. I mean I've served all over the world and it's interesting because when you go to a place like Senegal when you go to South Korea or China I served served in China early on you very much. Expect cultural differences. And they're not surprising. I've also served in places like Australia and Canada and Ireland and the UK where the cultural differences aren't as obvious on the surface But there are serious cultural differences. And you have to be no matter where you are in the world You have to be tuned to those cultural differences and nuances. Because you're some Shin would be say you were sent to Australia while he was an English speaking country that draws an enormous amount of his cultural influence from the United States. This isn't going to be the wrong going to be any pitfalls here know exactly. Look I I served in in Canada and there's a you know the. US is a very close relationship with Canada but most Americans. Aren't that aware what's happening in. Canada I remember the day that Canada had national elections. When I was there President Bush was is the president and he came up in a press conference and he had no idea the candidate was having election day? And you just can't imagine the Canadian. Prime Minister not being aware of elections since national elections happening in the United States on the same day. So it it shows you have to be attuned to that kind of Sensitivity of AH the difference in the role in the relationships in very much be aware of that so on the one hand you obviously you all that to represent the interest of the United States but on the other hand you really do you have to immerse yourself in the in the hosts culture in order to to do that job we do and to do the job effectively you have to be able. You always represent the United States but you have to be able to the seat things from the host country's point of view so you have to be able to put yourself in the shoes of the citizens of the country that you're representing that you're in representing the United States and try to imagine how they would see it. So whether you're giving a speech or doing an interview or hosting invent you always want to be aware of. What am I going to say in how I know how I will hear that and I know how to American audience which year that but how would this audience here that so did you ever despite all that preparation find yourself inadvertently the straying someway? You wished you hadn't well look my first interview on Radio Interview Senegal. I was asked What is your favorite food and Senegal? And I made a cardinal mistake. I didn't say the traditional Senegalese dish. I said To grilled fresh fish in French. Fries is which is what all the little cafes serve on the coast there but it seen in Senegal as a French influence dish not an indigenous Senegalese dish. So so that was a mistake and in hindsight even if that wasn't my favorite food I should have said it was. You need to stuck to that country you need to be able to live for your country needs to be added to the to the briefing beforehand on your favorite food now. Is this just in case anybody else exactly on similarly into those cultural briefings humidity. What they now I might need to consider is photographs of appropriate facial hair? Yes well you know what you never know what's going to come to bite you and I think the the hallmark of a good the diplomat is to be able to react quickly effectively. So we'll see whether Ambassador Harris has a date with a razor soon or not say maybe maybe they could ship ship razor over in a diplomatic diplomats package loosely. Thank you very much taking the time to come in and talk to us

"Two sixty six for more the final segment of the show I now have seven thousand pictures the people of taken of moose somewhere in Colorado but yet no moose I'm just saying okay I appreciate you guys sharing your joy with me but as this conversation started with me being bitter about not actually sing a moose myself do you think you're helping the question Dave thinks this next story is stupid a new survey says that the vast majority of American men that were surveyed two thousand American men were surveyed they feel better about themselves with some facial hair facial here is so important to modern man that one in five say they would give up sex for a full year if it meant they could grow the perfect beard they're not cases seventy five percent of male respondents say they feel much more confident with some facial hair I think this is reasonable why would you feel confident with no facial here that that seems you have a lack of confidence period if you have to hide behind your beard I think that facial hair looks mad men look more manly I'm not gonna lie and she's with me on this totally agree I I II and Chuck Chuck is one of those people that when he shaves his facial hair he looks like a completely different person and it freaks me out and I don't like it should do you look so different that when Q. was like three he shaved his beard and she saw him and started crying she did know he was well according to the same survey women say the preferred facial hair style was surprisingly a clean shaven look forty seven percent now so you're in the minority no no no no no that's not forty seven percent but then all of the other forms of facial hair equal more than forty seven percent I'm just saying when asked about the most attractive beer cell they got all kinds of stuff in there when men and women were asked about some attractive qualities in themselves most frequent answers were their sense of humor sixty six percent a hundred percent on that kindness sixty five percent and intelligence sixty four percent a friend of mine I don't know if I should tell the story in there now that I said that I was like she got asked out by a guy and she was like he's so cute and he's really he's like a hot guy but dang is he dumb Chuck I'm really on the fence right now because women can be shallow to just let you guys know so light that was three days ago in two days ago or yesterday I said so what's the deal you going out with a she's like I don't even think I could have a surface conversation with him so she turned him down she was like I just good first can't do it well you know as she said she's like I'm a fifty year old woman back in the dating pool I've just decided I'm going to be choosy this time which is kind of a slap at our house back in his shoes he yeah asking for a little intelligence is not exactly being choosy I dated a guy for a little while that my mom still refers to as that nice insert his name god he was stupid like you think his last name was god he was stupid but he was not the sharpest tool in the shed ever I don't understand about some guys and I'm not gonna put every guy in this category because that's not true guys that are only concerned with how a woman looks and this woman could be dumber than a bag of hammers but as long as she's hot that guys like she's alignment but at some point don't you have to use mono syllabic words don't you have to perhaps use talk about a current event or something I mean isn't personality mean anything I mean doesn't that attracts you as well well you know you you know that the the initial attraction course of course it wears off it fades it does you don't always remain in lust and then what's left after that then you have a conversation with someone you're attracted to so when they look good and you're introduced to them and after five minutes you know this you know the bag of rocks intelligence don't you move on at that point I do although I did date someone who got it was stupid I mean he was really supervise young so that's that's my excuse there and the other thing kindness kindness matters a lot more than I think some guys realize and I think kindness comes in as the relationship matures set not even kind is just to the person that you're dating uhhuh kind as to the people around you I will never forget I went on a like three dates with this guy and they were awesome dates they were fine we had a blast we hit it off we have a lot in common really great dating situation that he said Hey maybe over by my office will go to lunch great at the time I just started a radio so I was working as a as a waitress and working in radio at the same time we go to this restaurant it is slam packed for lunch I mean there's tons of people there we eat everything's fine and then the waitress comes and drops to checks at the same time you know the two books like this put them down we both really puts his money in there and she picks both of them up she walks back she comes back and puts the day the book with the change in it well he opens it and the change is wrong no I immediately know what happened she switch the books by accident yeah I but I've done it every waiter waitress is done something like that but instead of just calling over and saying Hey I think you gave you know my change the thought he said can you do math any proceeded to bore rate this waitress in front of me and I'm thinking to myself this could be me sure he could be doing this to me and we laughed and he called me the next day and I just I I I cannot date you any said why I said do you realize how you treated that waitress that could have been me because all I would never do that to you I'm like but I could have been your waitress but let's be real here I'm a waitress I'm on the radio a little behind the waitress that's what I do and he kept calling for like a month and I just I just didn't after I say I don't see you anymore I don't feel like I owe anyone any further explanation I don't have to take your calls I don't have to do any of that stuff if I've said that's not gonna work for me it's not gonna work for me but kind this is a big deal and it's kindness to everyone how big is your heart because if you're going to treat someone you don't know like that you're capable of treating anyone like that so how do you rate these qualities intelligence kindness looks how do you prioritize for me humor is a huge like probably as important as intelligence those are right at the top for me humor and intelligence and then kindness is right below it looks if you'd seen some of the guys I would date you would you know that that's not like right at the top Dave it's just not it's never been that important to me because I've dated some straight up ugly guys it's funny that you mentioned the kindness aspect that that that was the big turn off for you when you hear so many stories about women who keep picking cruel guys rotten guys yes and they keep being attracted to them I don't get that right I don't know I'm older you know I'm fifty now but when I was probably thirty thirty five probably four or five friends and I tell him all the time your picker is broken whatever is guiding you to towards these people it's broken you need to get some kind of therapy because you do a lousy job and when they push back it's like look all of these awful guys that you dated only have one thing in common you so if that's the only thing they have in common obviously your the problem here and through the years I don't associate with people who continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over again and what sympathy when they do the same stupid thing over and over and over again that's a personality trait I cannot tolerate and all that these women seem to find nice kind intelligent guys boring yeah well let me tell you as you get older that's a young woman's game these guys here they just don't you realize that they like the danger aspect for summary exactly but at some point you start to go wait a minute this is this is just dumb and you start to say this isn't who I want to spend my life with this isn't who I want to be a partner with and I think that that changes as women mature they stop finding that they can begin to see through it that's what it is like that bravado for the for the bad boy wears thin very quickly after a while it's not as impressive as you've heard those lines before you've heard that line of crap before and if you're smart women you realize it when it's happening again you know the best piece of advice I can give people all the time is when someone shows you who they are pay attention you know you don't have to like that guy obviously that was a part of who he was and I was like I'm I'm good I don't need to see that anymore I don't need to what I don't need to see what's next on that the good news is they usually reveal that at some point exactly hopefully they reveal it before you're you know six months into a relationship everybody can be on their best behavior for a certain amount of time true however that long period of time is depends on the individual because I dated a guy that it in all honesty I would say probably was a socio path to a certain extent and he held it together for about six months and then and then things start to unravel very very quickly and so he was gone because I don't eat a sociopath in my life because I am a no kidding I'm probably not a sociopath promptly by the way I Dave just got this email from Ronald Mandy if a man feels he needs facial hair to look family he has self esteem issues maybe because I was an infantry officer in the days when we could not have facial hair I never lack for confidence that being said I'm five seven and a half in many infantrymen I commanded were taller than me I discovered you either believe in yourself or you don't if you believe in yourself your confidence carries over now let me address that for a second we're not talking about guys needing facial hair they like facial hair they feel better with facial hair just like when I have a great hair cut I feel good when my hair looks like crap I don't feel as good it's incredibly shallow yes but that's just the way it is and then there's the other aspects of itching when you get a cold it's a real pain to have a beard or mustache my gosh it's you just brought me some Jewish penicillin for the bagel deli wow seeking appear my friend ever Ross Kaminski across the down here we go talk about your beard for second yes days marking here no I'm just kidding did you see the study that that man of feel better let's see here they feel let me get this right a majority of men feel better about themselves with some facial hair you have some facial hair is that on purpose you just lazy I'm lazy I didn't I didn't know you hit that fast it is almost right now I love that it's almost sheer laziness although I do think I look a little bit better actually now it now Ross has a really good potential beard there I mean crosses beer just like no holes and he could get a really nice beard if you want to work on it yeah you can grow a beard like five minutes see everyone thinks that but yeah because I don't shave very often yeah Ross spends most of his time shaving is back that is not nice and I don't want to know how you know that I'm just saying I do realize you're gonna get into that right away my hi this cold is just it sucks I there is the beginning of the show I was driving around I heard you talking about a Kleenex in one nostril on Twitter I was wondering which now so you can apply right one thought it could be funny to put in the one that you didn't have a cold in I love the way Ross I'm genuinely like so when I sat at my desk this morning I literally just on my show prep with.
Justin Trudeau Grows A Beard Over The Holidays
"You be taken seriously as an effective world leader and sport a beard. That's latest latest challenge for the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who appears to have given his razor arrest over the Christmas break. The pitch has been released sharing pensive Mr Trudeau showing off a neat eight covering of salt and pepper hair. His jaw line says Mr Trudeau's bid hit do politicians fall into the same category news readers and caterers. For whom facial hair. There is very much a no no clean-shaven Stephen Dl. Your thoughts on the The Trudeau pitcher suggesting that. He's he's gone a bit road down doesn't it. Ah I mean he's you know he's he's being very modern. I would say Rich I acknowledged I am not. I don't mind you know so if a guy wants to have a bid have a beard. What what I really hate? These days is kind of just a few days growth. It just looks scruffy and I'm actually I am one of those who thinks no you know. Politicians could goodness knows. They've they've lost enough respect as it is in many countries particularly this one In recent years But you know they they can at least look respectable and A Guy with for five days growth on his chin to my mind. Simply look scruffy. Maybe I'm missing. So maybe maybe ladies you told me you know. Maybe they look sexy or something. I don't know maybe I shouldn't be so clean shaven but to my mind MRS deal about. What are your thoughts scruffy sexy or a man in control I think as a man who still on holiday I have a friend of mine? Who's lawyer who I saw the Friday before Going going back to work on Monday and everyone was remarking party on his on. His Christmas holiday bid was only. Is this a new look. And he's Ono going on Monday morning. That's that was his sign that he was relaxing on holiday in on Monday morning. What is back to the beard would be would be absolutely gone? Justin Trudeau decided. Maybe I'd like it. Maybe it's GonNa Arash suggest laid-back news which You know maybe it's a good thing saying that it doesn't do lay black. It actually looks. Some people said it looked serious mature established established at. WHY IS IT Steve? And sporting a beard can be one of the most radical things that a man can do to appearance. I think because there's not a lot that we he can do In so much as Yeah you know we can wear a colorful tie or no tie or a man wearing a very floral shirt. Art will probably be laughed at You know if we're thinking certainly if we think in the world of work business bit politics whatever Men's clothing is fairly Kelly Dowell conservative. Perhaps a gray suit Maybe being really voter pinstripe suit I'm not being totally factors. If you think women have much much more flexibility in this they can have various colors they can wear a dress they commit trouser suit they can you know th th they they can change their appearance as it were much more easily. The the men's one thing man men can do is grow a beard or allow grow. Some facial hair I think it's interesting. For example that the the Movember Movement to two for prostate cancer. One of the things they you know they demonstrate his men grow starch For you know to raise money for charity I just you know. Ah there are very few things that we can do to To change our parents and particularly those of us who don't have much hair on our heads anyway and finally I mean we. We see now just Justin Trudeau whether he will keep the Betas something that indeed. The world's media will follow incredibly closely. But is this a sign that this traditional garb that stephen has been talking about actually might not be quite as rigorous in the world of politics and NPR anymore. I mean we need to look dominic. Cummings is the Zip Zip Department is a special advisor. I mean he looks just about got into the garden every day and he's not deliberately some. Psa I think it was about to say that there's a hole in the tech quotes. You'll steve jobs uniform polo neck. Or looking scruffy wearing your t shirt looking anti-establishment. It's it's a way of saying I don't care about the rules. I've I break the rules.

front door and they kind of consider each other friends by accident but there's much more to it than that it's a very deep in bonding friendship now he also has very difficult family life but nate describes his maters he has to control his tim pump he is trapped in a body the can't control his mouth he does Merrick gets into situations quite often he's rather would rather jump in and swing than doc in means and he'll he'll bite into situations that he however which he has no control and drag night along with him well these two out the only dis- ebbed teens in the town in suburb where they all made with this I've placed beside places is youth which is pickle of many youth centers I think around Australia I've been to a few and they will they will have the same feel that I think the kids that guy here the ones who don't have the tribe quite often or who who's hyme life is is just not safe this they need somebody to be able to just do things like h occasionally shower you fall asleep on a couch without wondering whether it's unsafe that kind of thing may see when you said you visited youth areas somebody like my see I think the best youth where the work has a lock my st in that they come from within that world and have an undisturbed deep understand adding of it so that the exchange between the youth workers and the children is much more honest in Ecuador as opposed to do gooders hanging in and trying to make changes without really understanding what these kids are up against so macy's sort of by her look and not so much growth authority but by her ability she controls this up people do feel safe there she's a survivor and the thing that kids since that they understand all just looking at her that she's she's been warned she's come out the other side of it and therefore they willing to follow her right we'll sort of night comes here too series homework and rod his nights he loses some pages of his notebook what happens then which is terrifying for him because the the things that he brought Newsnight booker intensely personal and never meant for anybody else to see or hear so he's lost lost a couple of pages and then a few days later one of his superiors graffiti on the wall to as is a way of protesting the post punk leisure of of the Santa suspect he immediately suspects tash a young lady who goes to the youth center he has some rather superior skills and she she is she doesn't hide the fact that she thinks he should stand up more for what he believes in and actually fought for the things that he cares about she's always more removed often she's she's scary really and look apologies to listeners but if you've witnessed disgruntled teenager the best way to just described as nate does is she has a fuck fuck off ice that's exactly what she deploys regularly graffiti leads the possibility of the youth closing down and this is a pretty safe place because school really isn't sport is the arena for bullied and quite often night has the blood noise or whatever but there is Mr Reed there's yes he's the English teacher who are rather deliberately right as Stereo taught in the beginning of the book and I had a bit of fun with that are made him out to be Must Robin Williams Caricature but I guess the point of that was to flip it later on when he realizes that he's altruism doesn't really come from a good place he's come from a private school he wants to make it changes help these kids and but he's reasons for doing that PEPs a little misguided he doesn't really understand the world they come from and he needs to deep he needs to understand his reasons for being so flips not quite so selfless after or anything can they have an exchange in a way of moving forward
"So what are the guiding principles of creativity is that some of you very best ideas. Come out of sheer frustration products like honest tea or cliff bar olders dyson these all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or or vacuum cleaners that they wanted so they invented them but in the case of Tristan Walker. I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up even angry because for most of his life he had felt completely league ignored totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving. I'll drugstore virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair but tristen couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps olivarez neck Kajol line and he knew that like him many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem so he decided to design bevill a shaving system with a simple single blade razor that was easy on his face and he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that we seem to be on the bottom shelves at the drugstore and his ambition to build a black owned and led consumer Marand as big as Johnson Johnson or proctor and gamble but of course when I tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sand hill road in Silicon Valley and he got a lot of knows but eventually he was able to launch his company with a razor some shaving cream but of oil and brush and over the past five years his brand has grown to include more than thirty specialized hair and beauty products for men and women which are now sold and lots of big retailers lers across the country a few weeks ago. Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it in front of a live audience at the Lincoln Theater in Washington. DC tristen Walker Central. I'll take it so let's start. Let's start at the beginning. Tell me about about out your childhood knew you grew up in Queens where I like to describe. It is a bit of the Rosa grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens New York projects. It's Welfare Bouts of homelessness that sort of stuff right and I realized very early at one goal in life and as as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible Salaam. I realized three ways to do it. I was to be an actor athlete that didn't work second second was to work on Wall Street that didn't work in the last entrepreneurship and then thank goodness. I came to that realization. We were a little boy. A A your dad died. He was killed killed and you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do yet for work so oh my mom worked three jobs mainly New York City Housing Authority Administrative Assistant? She spent some time working for Time Warner Cable and she did some retail all at the same time within seven days. I don't know how she did it. She did it. Thank goodness for her. It was not easy but she persevered and as a result of I think her perseverance good fortune beam I graduate college in my family and she she really in what what do you remember about like your neighborhood growing up as a kid I mean would did you do. Did you add in do much because I couldn't do much like my father was killed. When I was three years old? I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old which is a little bit telling to Kinda type of environment that I did grow up in so you know I lived probably the first six seven years of my life live in Jamaica Queens New York forty projects in the time I turned around seven years old. We moved to flushing Queens. Another project can development and it was much of the same right. My mother was like you're going to be the one you're not gonNa go through this stuff very disciplined. Stay home. Get Your studies and you're not going outside. When I snuck snuck outside? She caught me. I got in a lot of trouble but that was really kind of my life right. Get to school get home. Do you work repeat and you know that discipline actually Kinda got me to wearing them. Now school easy for you has a kid yeah. I was a good student because the discipline that was inspired me I always excelled right. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway at or near the top of my class you know and I kinda slow down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school. I realized I didn't even know what a verb was right. I wouldn't do this entire time. All the way up until my high school years doing really really well at the top of my class not even knowing what verb now and that sort of thing was as a teenager you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school hotchkiss in Connecticut the way I like to describe posh kisses is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally rockefellers Ford's right and I learned a couple of things first name mattered to being wealthy wasn't same as being rich and the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them while while while I didn't know Oh what a verb was I learned and by the end of my four years they're you know on a roll like that. Sort of thing you know is then absolutely just wonderful experience for me but transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up was it was the transition for you when you got there because you were like fourteen years old. I've been living away from home since I was thirteen fourteen years old and were the first few months at hard for you. academically we get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer and you know all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing and I went to leave as the English professor who is my adviser at the time and I remember he took me to this basement. We're all used textbooks are and then he was old compaq like Presidio L. Computer that we had the like hall out and take it to my room so academically. It was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete but over the years accelerating so you fish you go to Stony Brook University New York to study economics. Most most students don't necessarily know what they're gonNa do but did you have a sense of what you want to pursue their and what you thought you would do after I mean I was always thinking about the after I wanted to get wealthy yeah I was pretty singular in that help very singular in that hope and overtime that's kind of morphed and changed and the things that are important Ed Morrison changed but I knew I was very very very focused on how to get there and Wall Street was the next greatest option. All this silicon valley stuff at new idea about my world was New England so you're thinking do this degree and I'll go into finance plows e- economics is the closest degree we had at Stony Brook again to Wall Street Okay and in between my first and second year of university I got an internship and Lehman Brothers back office halfway through I I said I want to try some of this front office stuff so I left that enjoined trading desk at the time just observing so when you graduate so you you went actually went to work for Leman and then as a traitor and then everything and eventually JP Morgan in that time at that time time period. Did you still think this is what I should be doing. This is my sort of path to the worst years of my life. This is two thousand and five when I joined the company and as a traitor. Your job is to make money

"Pete Gavin loses on the top of his head the more. He plays with growing it on his face when Dave Letterman retired from the late show. He grew a long gray beard and for awhile slipped into relative obscurity since my mid thirties. When I first started losing hair on my head, and instead began growing it in new and interesting places, I have flirted around with my facial hair. Almost yearly I mix it up mustache goatee shadow full on beard, hand the bar. You name it. I've tried it. I suppose I've always thought about my face. But I confess since I semi retired not long ago. I now think about it more. Do I wanna be like Dave throw my arms up in the air and say, screw it? Or do I want to craft something to clip and maintain daily? There are many options and. Now that I'm completely bald on my chrome dome. Those options are more seductive. So I flip around and in time mug, reveals salt and pepper, admittedly, more salt these days, and I glanced in the mirror and see a middle aged soft in the middle Berkeley born worn out hippie who reminds me of any number of men from my past. And I realized that beard can't change. The fact I'm getting old, I know people who lost their hair early in life and went to great lengths to get it back or conceal it or diet me I like to mess around with my facial hair. Look Dave Letterman with his Moses like whiskers Dave could not care less about getting old. In fact, it's the opposite. He's on display an eccentric late night celebrity turned mountain, man. And we're tire -ment celebrating his golden years. I think I wanna be like Dave, well, minus.
