The Swedish Secret to Happy, Productive Work Days
"There's yet another scandinavian term. Making the trending rounds lately. This one has been around in some circles for a while. There even used to cafe in manhattan by this name that went to a few times. It's called fica f. i a and it's basically the swedish word for a coffee break but in practice means so much more quoting courts. The word fica is used both as a noun and a verb and is derived from the swedish word for coffey. A national obsession for the world's third largest coffee drinking nation unlike the american style. Caffeine jolt the swedish coffee break is a moment to literally leave work behind taken first around ten. Am and then at three pm. It's not a strategy for multitasking or for fitting in another mini meeting. It's a chance to relax in the company colleagues. The longstanding swedish social ritual doesn't necessarily even have to involve coffee. the key is to pause your day and quote. You can have your coffee or tea. Whatever your pleasure. And ideally you'd pair your beverage with a fresh baked good but the main point is to take a real actual break from work lars lund. Who owned that chain of fika coffee shops here in new york city told courts that taking a fica break two or three times a day makes them more productive and number of studies have backed this up. According again in two thousand ten grant thornton study found that swedish workers were the least stressed worldwide. Perhaps in part because we companies are experimenting with the six hour work day and made fica mandatory and even though only one percent of swedish employees work overtime according to the latest oecd better life index. They're not any less productive linkoping. university professor. Rebecca adult suard has studied the history of swedish social rituals and says breaks like fica may actually boost productivity studies. Show that people who take a break from the work don't do less. It's actually the opposite. Efficiency at work can benefit from these kinds of get togethers. She writes on her university blog. Her observations support a two thousand fourteen stanford university work productivity study that argues for capping the work week at fifty hours maximum and quotes and nyaka yano. The general design manager at moody says she noticed that swedish workers are exceptionally good at switching between relaxation and focus and within office space is the fact that the break is taken. Together across hierarchies putting all that aside for a few minutes can really help break down barriers and encourage healthy forms of bonding among colleagues. When i read about fika. I realized that i've kind of set my schedule up this way without meaning to i take a mid morning break to have a snack and coffee and pull myself away from the endless feeds and e mails. I'd been staring at all morning. And then i take another no screen break in the afternoon. Once this podcast goes up. of course. i'm not in an office. Space chatting with co workers and always manage to take both of those breaks every day. But that's the goal. And on the days that i do. There is a noticeable difference in my energy focus and overall contentment levels. Now i just need to get better about my baked goods game if you want to dive deeper into fica. There's a few books out there. One that kept popping up for me is actually a recipe book but it also includes a lot of information about the custom in how to adopt it in your own life. it's called fica. The art of the swedish coffee break by annaborough bonus and johanna pinball and the official sweden youtube account also produced a six part series on fica back in two thousand sixteen that you can watch to learn more about it links to both of those in the show notes
Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride
"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.
Interview with Curtis Pierce Author of "Pacific on the Right: Two Pilots, One Airplane, a Lifetime of Memories"
"That is the book about flying down at Chile and first of all. I guess the question is why in the world did you fly a one seventy two from where you aren't Phoenix all the way down to Santiago Chile you could have just put it in a crate ship. Well, that's a that's a good question and I guess I'll answer it with a with a quick story I would instructor for several years and loved instructing I love teaching I. Had I don't know forty fifty students that I did sign offs four and countless other students that were you know checkouts and be Afars and and so on. But I especially my private students I always. Trying to instill in them the idea that that this is something that you you're going to do forever you want to get that certificate you WanNa keep it current you wanna find that joy if lying the rest of us have already figured out and one of the ways that I told them to kind of do that or suggested. Is that they avoid the trap of the Hundred Dollar Hamburger in my time as an instructor I saw so many students would you know get their their private and they would fly for a couple years? They'd go have breakfast. You know an hour away couple of hours away and whatever, and just do kind of. You know little runs day trips and stuff and they got bored because you know after a while you've been all the places that are in our way and you know you, you've already had every dish on the menu at your favorite airport restaurant and then you get bored. And so I I always told my students you know You know rent the plane overnight go places take your family you know make it make it kind of a gateway to all these experiences that you can't have with the airlines are or just by road tripping around. And one of my students who really took that to heart and he bought a brand new Cessna one, seventy, two and told me hey I I. WanNa buy this plane and I want to fly it to Chile after I, pick it up and I said. And you know you can just take the wings off and put it in a container and You know in a couple of months it'll be waiting for you. And he laughed he goes well, aren't you the guy that told me I should go fly and have adventures and not just do the hunter dollar hamburger and I said well yeah. And so that was how we came to do it. He he was my private student he bought the airplane delivered. maybe a month or two before he got his private we spent another month or two of getting the equipment we needed and flying off the I fifty hours on the engine. You know to go through the break in period so we could switch to regular oil. And obviously, you know we didn't want to be surprised by any bugs or any any issues with the airplane that we might find. We didn't have any and so we we did that fifty hours and then we on a very cold November morning in Scottsdale Arizona we we took off for Santa Iago. Wow and that's But there's a little bit of planning ahead though before we just jumped on the plane and win so tells us a little bit about that as far as going down because I'm sure it took like a month or a month or whatever to get down there. How did you go about especially with a brand new student planning a trip through multiple countries, different types of aerospace down to Chile well it started out with him saying, how do we do this and me saying you know I've never actually flown out of the country before. The my student who became my very good friend that where we're still very good friends to this day more than twenty years later. He was a very successful businessman from Chile. had businesses all over central and south. America. was very well versed in business and in traveling and kind of negotiating the red tape of doing business in other countries, and so he he didn't know the nation part of it, but but he was already a depth kind of weaving his way through bureaucracy. And what I brought to the table was obviously you had a bad prion, two thousand and fifteen hundred hours at that time. So I've been flying for while. and so I kind of knew the airplane part of it but the actual planning basically started with me saying, Hey, let's just call planning company and be done with it. Just send US everything and we'll send them a check. Well, it turns out that there's not a single planning company that will touch a piston airplane they they only do jets and so we basically did it on her own. We found an F., B. O. and Chile that was willing to help us a little bit while we were on the road this was. Cell phones were around but not too many people had them, and certainly an international plans were not a thing. So. We kind of needed somebody in real time could assist us. But for the most part we we searched out all the permits ourselves just. was basically you know cold calling the various agencies in in all the different countries we plan to land in and just got the permits we had email, and so most of it was done by email I spoke a little bit of Spanish but it wasn't great and so he did most of the communicating and I did kind of logistical planning of okay. We're in a one, seventy two we can go about four hours, and so we mapped out our stops and figured out you know what would be technical stop where we would just get gas and keep on going and then what stops would be overnight stops where we would have to clear customs and Have permission to stay on an overnight basis, and so it it took about six months I kept a journal and I still have all my notes you know phone numbers and email addresses for all these different agencies and when I contacted who and kept tractable of all the permits as they came in But we we kind of had a date set. We wanted to hit the weather so that it wasn't too hot wasn't too cold on either end because obviously the seasons are opposite and in south, America. So we had to kind of thread the needle weather wise So we started pretty early but by. Probably late September early October we had everything lined up that we needed one looking at the at the math here I had to refresh my geography I guess. Just just looking at the root, you'd have to take up the one, seventy two. You'RE NOT GONNA fly over the Pacific Ocean right? Right. Right there. So I mean just down obviously from Arizona through Mexico and. Guatemala Nicaragua to be fifteen countries or something along the way. It was eleven, countries, eleven. Affair yes. And and being a one, seventy two you probably had to stop and most of them I'd imagine. Or Eight. Now we didn't use. We didn't use bladder tanks. The airplane was completely unmodified so like I said, you know that airplane Was a sixty gallon usable airplane or no sorry fifty gallon US airplane. So burning ten gallons and our meant for hours and we we needed a place to land. So we we based. All of our flight planning on that was that we we couldn't go any more than four hours,
Robert Patin On The Business System That Leads to Success
"Nice guys community. So get this I'd love to start off this amazing episode in the words of a fan of today's guest. Rebecca. Patent has created an indispensable guide for how to create not only the business you want, but the life you want. So Robert is an authority on financing creative, Services Agency growth. He's the founder and managing partner of patent and associates a Los Angeles based Business Management and consultancy firm through his Council and coaching his clients have generated more. Than get this thirty, million dollars in additional revenue is the author of the number one international bestseller, the agency blueprint, the business system that leads to success I'm excited to have them here today welcome Robert to the Nice guys on business podcast like you so much. So happy to be here. Happy to have you here man appreciate your your level of expertise is I was reading some of the reviews. Unfortunately we do so many interviews they don't have a chance to really. Dive deep into many people's books, and yours was one that I just kept reading the Amazon like until they wouldn't let me let me take anymore pages. I'm like Oh this is good. This is good stuff. So congrats on right Milia a really good book that that means a lot to those that are in your community. Awesome. Thank you so much a so tell me I, WanNa start with this in case somebody realizing I. don't even know what an agency Is Can I want to start with a real one? I'M GONNA approach is a third grader for a moment and then we'll get into a little deeper conversation but what would be considered an agency for those that are listening in our entrepreneurial based community today. Sure. So I defined agency as a marketing agency that handles creative that handles strategy that handles public relations digital agency that a social media management, facebook ADS SEO graphic design, web design, and video production. Excellent excellent and for those that are in our community, how how would they know like what symptoms are they experiencing? If they know that they are running a business that instead of they're running the business, the business is running them 'cause I'm assuming oftentimes that's why they'll they'll come to talk to you if if they need some help with getting their arms around their agency. So typically, you'll see that the agency owner is working more than forty fifty hours a week They're spending the majority of time doing things that are in client service administrative work where they're not working on things that allow the business to grow. So the primary focus that I work with as far as executive coaching is on getting the business owner to be focused on everything to be on business growth. So, how do you get somebody out of their own way? Because oftentimes it is I'm looking at I have a podcast production business and we have give or take eleven or twelve people depending on the time of the time of the year that we we run our business, and I oftentimes find myself working in the business rather than the big pickers picture strategy because sometimes I'm dealing with the selling side of things or getting into the weeds when it comes to marketing or design of you know of a landing page and that's probably a big. No No, I just don't know how to get myself out of that and get out of the way I'm I'm assuming that many of our people in. Our community, our experience that experiencing that too. So what would be your advice other than? Hey, just kind of stopped doing that what's their first step? What do they need to do the? It's a lot of it is a mind shift shift change ride that you need to be thinking about in is the only person in the world that can do. This particular task, and if not, then it should be going through what I refer to as the threes do delegate or discard rights owed is this something that I should be doing because I'm the only person can if if not in someone else can than it should be delegated and if it's not worth being delegated than it's something that should be discarded. So, when did you discover that? This was your gift. When when you come down to it, weren't you where you one of your biggest offenders before you became the biggest advocate for what you do? Absolutely. So I had at one point in my business and I had reached a position of burnout. Right I was working ninety hours a week and had been doing that for multiple years and got to appoint. was starting to feel trapped in my own business and. I decided one weekend, sit down and actually just. Pen to paper, write down what I wanted my business life to look like what I wanted my life to look like and mapped out a plan to redesign my business to function to provide me with the life that I want still being able to grow the business and be able to have an impact, the same value and impact on the community that I have. But not having the level of stress that I was in and sacrificing my personal life and my personal goals for career.
How to get a Helicopter License
"Let's talk about what it takes to get a helicopter certificate because I'm sure that's probably the first thing in people's minds. What are the FAA requirements for getting a helicopter private? Well. You're GONNA, find the requirements under part sixty, one, one, zero nine, which is where you're gonNA find the airplane requirements as well, and essentially it's a very closely mirrored to what the airplane requirements are you going to a total of forty hours under a part sixty one school Twenty hours of that is required to be dual ten hours of it is required to be a solo on your own, and then the other ten hours are generally made up of preparatory work or some of the students weaknesses in what they need to prep for the the ride and I, think everybody knows that forty hours is the minimum. Certainly airplanes people end up with more than that. What's kind of? The typical range of ours that people end up when they get their private in what drives, that WH- take some people longer than others. So all the requirements for helicopters were really based off of the airplane requirements. If you look anywhere in the far aim, you're gonNA see a lot of mention about the airplanes and it's not until you get down to the bottom of the regulations where it says except for helicopters. Helicopters can do this or this doesn't apply to helicopters special be far for an example, doesn't apply to helicopters as far as not being able to get it at any time you can request it at any time but yes, a typically people get their license about fifty hours seems to be difficult I. Don't I'm hearing more and more than in the airplane world fixed-wing world that taken people closer to the fifty hour mark in I. Don't know what that what that's caused by. Like you said and like the regulation say the forty hours is really minimum. I have had one of my students get. It is little as four three hours. But for the most part, the average is around fifty hours or so in helicopters I can say they're quite a bit different than airplanes. There's a lot more moving parts in just getting the actual hand. Eye Coordination Down to fly the helicopter is probably typically what takes a little bit more time. Now on top of that, you know it has to do with people schedule. Everybody's busy whether you have a job or a family or your own school or whatever. It might be. You know the more consistent you are in your training, the bathroom it's GonNa go typically. Nowadays, it other than when you and I flew. It's pretty nice because we have the Internet and we have. Why a few programs on that, you can take ground school online whether it be three o'clock in the afternoon or three o'clock in the morning whatever works for you, and then you and I. Can. Sit Down with our students and do information clarification making sure that people understand what they're learning. What about folks like me? Who have a airplane certificate and actually have one helicopter lesson on my belt Bell let's forget about that. What are the our the requirements different for someone who's already a pilot? Yeah. So right there the requirements are thirty hours flight time twenty hours of dual and ten hours of Solo. For the most part. All My ad on students are still taking somewhere in the forty hour range to fifty hour range, just depending on their schedule but the the minimum requirements drop by ten hours. Now, if you go to a part one, forty, one school that typical forty hours initially drops down to thirty five hours. That being said it still minimum the way I run my flight school as far as the education the syllabus recording I run at very much like a part one, forty, one school. So from a learning skill standpoint airplane pilots at any kind of a disadvantage because we need to unlearn things that we thought we knew. Well. I can tell you go on the opposite way for sure since I did that getting my helicopter first and then my but yeah. So there are two things that really pop out my head. One of the things is you know airspeed is our lifeline in an airplane in a helicopter that's not the case rotor RPM. Line the one of the. GonNa Notice with new pilots or on pilots. I should say when they're coming in for approach, they don't like getting slow whereas one. You know what you do when you coming on approach whether we're practicing shallower, not steep approaches whatever they may be we end in a hover. And airplane pilots don't like when you touch the ground. You're still going down the runway though is just getting them to understand that it's okay to lose airspeed because it's rotor RPM that we're concerned with the other thing is in a stall or an engine failure. One of the first things they tell you to push forward to regain airspeed don't do that in a helicopter, particularly a two bladed rotor system helicopter because that'll put you into A. Low gravity situation, and if you're in a low gravity alone g situation, you can actually aerodynamically take take the fuselage of the aircraft and the rotor system that is no longer supporting the fuselage and you can actually snap that off similarly to over controlling an airplane in saying Arab addict situation or windy situation breaking the wings off other want things that you need a particularly watch. The other thing is we don't lead with the rudders interns. We don't have rudders we have pedals, but they're anti Torque pedals in that strictly to keep the ball centered if you will or to keep the nose pointed into the wind, the more power you pull. The more anti left pedal that you need an opposite that of meeting right pedal when you're taking off in an airplane.
Whispers of trouble - listen to your plane
"If airplanes could talk what would they say? Well, they can talk if we learn how to listen and pay attention sometimes the languages subtle in a new sound or vibration. Sometimes they scream as when my friends number five cylinder unexpectedly dropped valve resulting in a broken piston, complete oil loss and prompt engine failure. Some sudden catastrophic failures are impossible to predict, but others can be predicted and possibly avoided. Ask pilots. A mental note of what our instruments usually indicate and look for deviations that could indicate A. OR PENDING FAILURE Just because the indication is still in the green range does not mean that nothing is wrong knowing the usual indications for our own engine will allow us to listen for any deviation and investigate the issue. I am fortunate and get to fly three hundred hours a year commuting to work as an emergency room physician. My Commute is from Statesboro Georgia to lagrange. One to two times each week, the fight one, hundred and seventy, two nautical miles and takes about seventy minutes each way in my highly modified North American navien. My engine was a continental I o five, fifty be that was freshly overhauled just a few years ago. I always change the oil between twenty five and thirty five hours instead of waiting until fifty hours. On two occasions, my engine instruments have displayed unusual oil pressure indications. The first indication was in June two, thousand sixteen during a return trip from New Mexico. The June weather was beautiful and via far but very hot all along the route home. During the flight the oil pressure ran about five to seven PSI lower than usual but otherwise acted normally oil temperature was less than two hundred degrees Fahrenheit for the entire flight. The engine ran great and continue to produce plenty of power I. nervously watched the pressure as it stayed steady in the green range and continued our trip home. The oil consumption remained as usual during that trip and we arrived home on eventually. Once home. The oil was changed in a new paper element oil filter installed prior to this oil change I was using a reusable stainless steel mesh oil filter that was removed and disassembled for inspection at each oil change. On Inspection, I found that the Steel Mesh had accumulated some residue that narrowed the openings in the Mesh. I, reasoned that the oil filter was restricting flow and oil pressure. So I returned to using paper element oil filter that is discarded at each oil change the oil pressure return to normal and I return to flying with my usual oil pressure of forty five to forty six PSI in cruise flight. That engine continued to run great and showed no problems. Regular oil filter cutting revealed no metal and oil analysis was always normal. So normal that I skipped cutting the filter and oil analysis when I changed the oil in December of twenty seventeen. I continued to fly Navien until late February twenty eighteen when something changed. I was flying to work and noticed my oil pressure was once again lower than. It was down into the Middle Thirties but once again remained in the green range and steady. I increased RPM from low cruise at two thousand, three hundred to hike cruise at two, thousand, five hundred and the oil pressure returned to the usual forty, five to forty, six PSI. The oil temperature was around one hundred and sixty degrees, Fahrenheit. which is the usual oil temp in cool weather for that engine. I was concerned about the oil pressure indication but I had seen this occurrence previously the weather was good and the pressure was backup to usual. So I continued on to lagrange. Three days later I returned home to Statesboro. Now comes the lucky and scary part. The flight home was night I F R and I flew the Runway three to approach into statesborough. Before departing I checked everything carefully and the oil pressure on run-up was normal. I watched the oil pressure carefully and flew home that high cruise power setting. I landed uneventfully but noticed that oil pressure at idol was a lot higher than usual. Low Minimum oil pressure at idol with the engine. Hot is ten PSI. But mine was always fifteen to twenty PSI. This night I was looking at thirty five PSI at idol with the engine hot. I had never seen idol oil pressure that high but was not concerned. I push the airplane into my home hanger and return the next morning to change the oil. The tachometer showed the engine had accumulated fourteen hundred and forty five hours since overhaul. Drained the oil and replace the oil filter and began refilling the crank case with fresh oil. When I decided, it was time to cut the oil filter. I found a large amount of metal in the filter. The oil that drained out of the filter was filled with metal flakes that look like silver glitter on my hand. What happened I had not cut the oil filter or submitted an oil sample at the last oil change. So there was no way of knowing what I would have found then. Had I, not cut an examined the oil filter on this oil change. I would not have found the metal in time and bad things would have happened on the next flight. When I disassembled the engine, I found the two of the main bearings had turned in the crank case, and we're obviously very near having a catastrophic failure. Now. This engine did not vibrate knock or suffering power loss. The only in-flight indication of any problem was changed from the usual oil pressure readings with the actual reading remaining in the normal range. As Buck my old flight instructor would have said she was talking to you. I was not listening carefully enough but survived just the same. This is the accident that never happened simply because I cut the oil filter. Had I, submitted the oil for analysis and waited for the results before flying again, the problem could have been discovered, but I fly too often to await test results. I would've received an urgent phone call from my oil analysis company, but it would have been after the accident. My current practice is to cut every oil filter at time of oil change cutting the oil filter while messy is free and gives immediate feedback. This simple process can save your airplane and your life.

Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections
"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.
Jackie Ruiz: Author, Publisher, Aviation Lover
"Get started like like we almost always liked to do and I go back to the beginning a little bit. What was your? What was your first exposure to aviation? How did you first get involved? Well you know a lot of people ask me where this passion king from. Certainly wasn't for my childhood because in Mexico growing out both you know middle class family the SIMA flying planes. So I was just not in the not on the menu and My first sort of experience was a beautiful hot air balloon. So here in Illinois and I happen to spot this beautiful lights craft I thought it was kind of a toy airplane and as we approached this day said, no you Texas fly aircraft and we immediately my husband and I purchased the discovery flights and I think it was the first time that flying that aircraft with no doors on. Feeling freedom and those wings It just like it was like Lois Recite About how long ago was that? I was probably about six years ago and I started. Sort of you know like it's almost like sometimes you find ambition find a passion and sometimes the passion finds a way to find you and I think that that's how it started to kind of fit into every part of my life with the ideation school asking me if I could do their marketing and then being invited to an island to keynote or three hundred soldiers and my finding a way to get there with the traffic that this growed represented asking. To give me a ride in but you know sort of opened up this whole world of. Possibilities I looked at a section I said What if I can fly myself to places launch in breakfast thing and see the beautiful sunset either y you know if I could do that and Anything that bug. Just seeped into my heart and never loved me. So it's been about five years and got my license, my sports pilotless inside two years ago in July. It's awesome. Yeah and it's a great great sign that when you did that discovery flight with the doors off, you enjoyed it I. I've done a couple of young eagles flights in the zenith. We we had an are flying club where we we pull the doors off which I love a pilot but sometimes I look over there and that that Young Eagle was a baby in the seat a little. A little too hard. So say there's a little getting used to. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's good that you enjoyed it Why did you go sport pilot? Why? Why did you Y how? Why was that a good fit for you? I the school that I was But I basically, with were kind of experts saying you know light sport aircraft, which is the new that BFA introducing two, thousand, four and It seemed to be you know hobby it seemed to be a wonderful way for me to get my hands but you know just kind of getting to the beginning to the industry and You know running to companies and nonprofit organizations in between my travels around the world I, Kinda wanted to see how Would you know fulfill my life and in in in this passion continues to grow. And I just found that aside an amazing stone having the responsibility of three passengers just one. Done by Katie. To to really you know to make that happen. So in hindsight now back and say, well, I I wish I would have gone straight to my private but the experience all the hours and a gain to close one hundred, fifty hours on the four aircraft You know I, it's it's just getting more confidence that I can fly bigger aircraft and now I mean they journey of getting my
"What's up everybody welcome game. Joining me this week is Tina Amini Stein and Stein Stein like. Stein I like. Which means one Stein? Exactly same flavored is here. Everybody and making his inaugural scoop appearance is Michael Swaine Michael Walker show swain scoop. Yes. So. Damon there's been a couple of you didn't host that you wouldn't know Michael was on those or not? Just put that up. Think there's only two. Really. I didn't host. You had one without me right when she was in Germany. And then Kim knows stole my spotlight one time. Yeah Yep. That's true. Swim. He's been working with us for a while now, but we've been wanting to game on Gamecube. We finally wrangled them. Now that some are gaming has come to an end. He actually has some free time. so Michael Tell us about what's your favorite game of all time? Wow. That's a hotter than you probably meant to solicit. Day. They ask us this. When we joined the company I joined about. Game. When you join game scooping and they put the Bar Code on the back of your neck. They ask you. What's your favorite video game? And at the time I said SCICLUNA. And that's. Still Very Near and dear to my heart, but I gotta say right now at this time in my life. You asked me that Damon. I have to be honest. That's stranding. Game of all time it I've had in the middle of a very spiritual experience with it I'm about one hundred fifty hours of put into that game and wow, I've just. It's opening the up in ways I didn't think I was I was thinking a lot this week? Because there's that hint at the sequel and found that strangely comforting, because first of all I had a great time play. It was absolutely favor game last year. What we laughing at what are we getting? He's making united. Here. We didn't close. Einstein has judging our tastes. He's he's like crying out loud about this. It's more. But even though it has some some weirdest, too. I had a really good time playing and I I. Really Really Look back in that time fondly and I like really WanNa kind of. A comfort game like that again it was. That's what I was calling the right word. It was my animal crossing new horizons. It got me through the quarantine instead of building my little house I was walking around. Little Roads Oh. Yeah, my maps complete every road section that can be built as. Sent, brother Yeah when. Curls up in the air as the craziest road Love, so, what was it before that stranding? I cannot. And we played the second ads. VR Game also very in inventive as Tim Schafer in the People Double Oh. I. In that's interesting, it's a very interesting answer destiny. For my like my personal, whenever I'm trying to come up with my favorite of anything of all time, just like my own little sort of a personal. I limit myself to only things that were released at least five years ago. That way I have some hindsight that I can sort of. You know you're absolutely right. There's recency biases in play for sure and the. Okay, we you. You say Yo exclude things from five years ago. No. It's no. It has to be at least five years old. Probably reflects on your in order for it. For me to consider it one of the best of whatever of all time, yeah, for example I have a playlist that I keep updated of my favorite songs of all time. They're called God tears songs, but I won't allow any song. That's less than five years old on that playlist. Okay I think that makes sense. I think the Oscars actually showed work that way. We'd have some perspective on things at that point. That's a great idea that's your. Of. Tina. Do you notice when we do a game of the year? Stuff that our staffs tends to think about things that just came out especially for music. That's when I really noticed an. Fresh on your mind. Exactly, it's also holiday season right so all these games are out, and it's just like I've never been able to separate that out. At the Santa, then towards the end of the year, we have more time to like finally. Catch up on some game, so it gives people an opportunity to play the stuff early in the year that they had. To not throw. Our whole came on the air system under the bus SAM.
Making the Pivot from Pastor to Web Designer with Chris Misterek
"Manage your time better, but I want to kind of switch gears a tiny bit and talk about your decision to go from doing web design, part time, or on the side to doing it fulltime, because I've. I'm trying to think in my head, but I don't think I've ever met. Anyone interviewed anyone who was working in like a faith related. There's probably a like industry term for that like a faith based profession, or whatever who went from that into tech I. actually do know someone who did the reverse who was intact and then went back to school for Ministerial Studies but I haven't heard someone quite like you, so i WanNa. Know like how you made that decision in what went into that? Yeah, for sure you know it wasn't easy because I had been at my job at the church for thirteen years when I decided like okay I. Think I think this might be the direction that I'm moving in show it was it was a multi tiered decision and I think anybody who goes through a career change, no matter where they're coming from or going to their show, many things that you have to consider and part of it was I was working fulltime for the church. And then you know still another twenty hours on top of my my work for the church show. For the Church was at least fifty hours a week, and so I was point seventy to eighty hours a week depending on the activity that we were doing, and so part of it was like okay like this is, this is to be too much in. So I need to figure out a way to. Scale back a little bit and have some more free time for myself and you know. It wasn't that? It was taking time away from my family. It was more that it was taking more time away from me. Being able to sleep because my girls would go to sleep my family, we've got to sleep. I'd say up until two or three in the morning. Just trying to get things done, so you know there was that aspect of things at NFL goes back to having the time to do things like I think. You can only run the at your pace for so long before you go. Okay, something needs to change or. On a short train to burn out, so so there was that. And I don't sound too overly spiritual or anything, but my my understanding of who got is and how he operates within the world is that he's not confined to a church, and so my thought was I'm not. I'm not necessarily leaving the ministry, but just that ministry is going to be. Looking a little bit differently for me, and how to huge heart and passion to see how God could use me in the tech space in the tech world, and and so it's it's been pretty awesome to connect with people who are of of this infant, but even people who have heard my story and have been encouraged and know that you know God is still using that despite the fact that it's not overtly from. From a church or or from Christian organization, so it's it's been pretty fun, and and it's still like a year and a half inch, so I'm still like figuring it out. You know because I have thought patterns in like beliefs and stuff. That I've been building up for thirteen years, and so the transition. It's not like I'd turn to switch on in my whole thought process in mindset change you know like is a. A gradual process and I think that's true for anybody who's WHO's trying to make a transition even if you haven't been in a job for a short as long a period of time as I was, you know like I've had to be patient with myself. I've had to have people speak into. Have some people to bounce ideas off of like I know you and I have bounced ideas off of one another as like. Like what is this look like for you? And how do you experience this? And but at the end of the day like I love the idea that you can have like a big impact. No matter what space you work in the impact that you have on the world is not dictated by the job that you do, but it's by how you do that job and how you look at it approaches and so. If I were saying Oh. This isn't as significant of a job as my last one. Then I think I'd miss out on a lot of opportunities that I've had just because you know that's such a bad way to look at.

Developing long duration energy storage
"What a year it's shaping up to be for. Storage manufacturing has taken a hit and some projects are getting delayed for obvious reasons Our analysts that would mackenzie say that. The coronavirus crisis will trim twenty twenty forecasts for Battery Installations. Globally by almost twenty percent. But they still expect it to be a record year and the projects that caught our eye are not going to get built this year but they do show the strength and resiliency of this market a few examples here. A coal plant in North Dakota is going to be replaced. In part with a one acre battery array that uses a new technology capable of discharging for a hundred and fifty hours. That's more than thirty times longer than a lithium ion batteries. The Electric Utility in Hawaii just awarded contracts for sixteen projects that add up to more than three gigawatt hours of storage and those will replace an oil fired. Coal-fired Power Plant in California Southern California Edison signed contracts for seven hundred seventy megawatts of batteries. Many of them paired with solar projects to replace aging gas plants plus in China more hybrid wind solar and battery plants are starting to emerge and wood. Mackenzie expects rapid growth in batteries within China in the coming years. It's the country will lead Asia. This lead Dan Foley who would McKenzie's head of energy storage to proclaim to our journalist at Green Tech Media The utility energy storage market is blowing through milestones faster than we can report them for example those Sei projects are together worth two hundred megawatts more than the entire twenty nineteen market says Fin Foley. So let's go through these. I think we should focus on the bright shiny objects I. What do we know about this form? Energy Project Catherine mentioned this at the end of a recent show so catherine what is Great River Energy who is form energy and what kind of battery could emerge from. This relationship is a great river. Energy is the largest generation and transmission co-op and what that means is it generates and provides power under long-term contracts to a bunch of member. Co Ops like twenty eight member Co ops and this is how a lot of the COP system is formed in the US where they're small co ops that are often serving rural communities. They are very much about keeping costs low for their customers and customers. Own the CO OPS. They are customer owners but then they sign up for long term agreements with these GMT providers. Because it does save the money in the long run and a lot of these. Gmt providers we've seen have these long term contracts For old coal plants and so great river energy is one of those GM GMT's and they made a decision a while back to shut down coal a coal plant call strip and they have been thinking about. How are we going to backfill it? And what are we going to use to do that? And so they've certainly been deploying a lot of renewables and they just recently entered into this agreement with Form Energy and forum is a start up Led by Matteo Harm. Yo who came out of TUSLA. He was the energy storage guru there yet mingchang. Who's an MIT professor? Who has been really another brains behind storage and Ted Wiley who co-founded Aquaman and energy storage company and there are a couple of other. Mit folks. Billy Woodford and Marco Ferrara and there. It's just a team of incredible minds. Who decided to try to calm at storage by thinking about it it as potentially being able to replace all of these Uncaught non cost effective coal plants and so their technology seeks to be super cheap long-duration Nontoxic something you would find everywhere to be able to you know. Put together a type of a flow battery that could just replace the footprint of any fossil fuel plant so that is their goal. And that's what a great river energy has decided to take a bet on. Let's talk about the tech first and then the rural cooperatives piece second jigger. This is a battery. We don't know much about but they call it an aqueous air battery. What does that mean well? Basically in it uses more abundant materials. Because what you find is as that the metals wondering yeah we'll water but also the metals they're using or quite Easy to find and so it's aluminum zinc magnesium etc right. And so so what you find is that they have this ability to use low-cost materials right and they're able to Store lots of energy so when you think about this ad. Matteo talks about this in his interview The way that Lithium. Ion Batteries work is that you can actually charged quickly and discharged quickly but at the same time basically to charge it as to discharge it. And so what you find. Is that these batteries It's around like sort of being able to constrict the nozzle and only making it one megawatt right because you can imagine that you could make a lithium ion battery that's a hundred megawatts incised but only dispatch one megawatt at a time and then make it last one hundred fifty hours now. The problem with that those. It's a super expensive way to get one hundred fifty hour battery whereas this is a much cheaper way. It's it's similar to sort of Etienne redux batteries and others were the basically have this. The fluid that that holds the charge can be expanded at a very low cost. The fuel cell that converts that fluid into energy that's utilized is the expensive
The Perfect Time To Buy?
"Thing that was interesting before we got to complete isolation people were asking me when we were doing the social distancing phase of all. This right people were asking me. Hey are you know is it okay to continue to fly or you still flying and the truth of the matter was I? I was not right. I'm often in rental airplanes and most of the the flying schools near me shut down and I didn't want to be that close to people you know I like. I said I'm committed to stopping the transmission here but I do have a lot of friends that own airplanes and I did not see anything wrong with that right if you can leave Your House. Go to your garage. Get in your car. Drive by yourself to a hangar. Open the hangar door and get in an airplane without touching anybody you can't be more socially distant than cruising around at five thousand feet by yourself right so I thought if you own an airplane going flying was a great thing to do and you know. It's an interesting time to think about that because owning an airplane is not as far away from reality as many people think. Sometimes I'll mention in passing that I'm thinking about buying airplane and people kind of their eyes get wide like whoa really. You know you must be doing really well and you know the reality is you can get into an airplane that works for you for not a crazy amount of money. I mean you can sure spend a lot if you have it. You can spend up to one hundred million dollars if you have it but you can also get into an airplane for as little as fifteen or twenty thousand dollars if depending on what you're looking for and if you're willing to have partners so that is kind of where where I am. I'm on the fence. You know I fly my family to palm springs from San Francisco. Probably four or five times. Maybe six times a year and I'm on the fence you know. At what point do I want to own an airplane of rent one and I noticed that a friend of mine and a great pilot designated Pilot Examiner Flight Instructor? Jason Blair had recently authored. Two books on this topic and I reached out directly to Jason to see if we could have a phone call and discuss some of these questions. But yeah man. I'm really curious and I'm sure we can get into the details of the two books that you defend and they actually did arrive. So thank you for sending them over excellent. Very glad you got. Oh Yeah I haven't I haven't taken to deep dive on them and I figured I would start just by asking that question you know how like right. Now I'm renting I take my family to Palm Springs. Eighty maybe I don't know five times a year six times a year or something like that and you know I'm always asking myself. How much do I have to spend on renting before it makes sense to buy? And does it ever the short answer? I'm GonNa tell you is it will almost never make logical financial sense to buy you know what if. I said you know she's a how can I financially justify going golfing and whacking a little ball? Around a course and hitting the GO-TO for whole we'd sound like we're crazy right But the answer to that I like doing it and it's it's mine and I you know why. Do you buy your own clubs instead of rent because you want them yours and that's fine and that's a that's a decision you can come to with owning an airplane and there's nothing wrong with that because there's there's a lot of intrinsic things that come with you know. My airplane is in my hangar. It set up how I wanted to be you know and and okay so is it a thousand dollars more years than I would spend on renting. Maybe but you're also probably a lot more likely to engage in. Go flying in your own airplane. Then if you're fighting on that rental scheduled trying to get an airplane Airplanes broken if it's being used in training and inter starting to find a lot of places that rent airplanes and are heavily involved in training. They really don't even allow their aircraft out torrential anymore outside of the training environment because they they need to keep that training going I tell people that owning an airplane is an experience. You're buying an experience. It might be a little bit more than renting. But you're buying the experience of the airplane being there when you want it of Bringing you know your dogs along if you want to you or or you know going away and deciding while you're gone you're gonNA stay an extra two weeks you know. These are things that that you can't do as a renter. So you're definitely buying experience when you buy an airplane. Yeah and being an I totally get that by the way and I. I love arguing For buying experience But being that you think of it that way what would you say to somebody who says I'm planning on buying an airplane and putting it on the flight line at least back to offset my ownership costs and that's a good question to actually address it in the buying book you know what are some things you can do to allay that cost of of your airplane or the things you can consider and that's something that some people do you know if you want an airplane fly forty or fifty hours a year But you do want that aircraft to help allay its own costs You know you're GONNA hire insurance costs you'RE GONNA have. I remains cost. You're going to go through. Engine hours faster But it does. If you can find the right leasing back deal helped to cut. Some of those operational cost the biggest one. That's going to help. Cut are the the overhead pieces. You know having your own hangar If you can get them to do the insurance things like that if they have their own maintenance they're gonNA probably be doing it not at a profit level and this is where the negotiation comes in But it does come with some downsides to and that is your airplane may not always be available when you want it You may not equipped and have the exact airplane you want if it was ears because you may choose to get a different airplane because it fits better in the flight training environment Or adjust is going to take a beating too. I mean there's there's some truth in that we don't treat the airplane like it's our own. I mean the airplane I gotTa Out of today is a beautiful three forty and the owner of it is a great friend of mine. happens to be out of town. Another friend of his was looking for a boat and they got the call. He's on vacation. Can you find my buddy up there today and you know? I know Sunday when he gets back from his trip. He's going to go out to that. Airplane even wipe the bugs off. He's probably gonNA treat the boots because it's it's his and he treats it that way and you know. I don't know many renters that are going to do that. Your airplane Jason's absolutely right here. We don't treat rental aircraft the same. I mean we have a joke in our flying club. That one we're headed home. We're going to set quote rental power. Which means like a needle off the red line right? We're worried about babying the engine. We're not flying around sixty five percent of power. We are flying at maximum forward speed because we are being billed on the Hobbs meter. And the hobbs meters turning on time. So that's a very important thing to consider right and I sort of you know. I've experienced horror stories that way. You don't want example as a early on like really thousands and one of my students bought See WanNA clips and not a Qatar. But you know like a phrase he died in a DA twenty right. Put you on the flight line. He's doing real well with it. Because it's this fancy new glass playing. He actually had ten thousand dollars in profit from renting the aircraft until one of the student pirates engaged the starter motor while the prop was spinning and held it down to be burnt completely. Burned out the starter and sap through all the ten thousand dollars by the time it was done and all things are placed and the you know the reduced revenue from so I always tell people honestly like I tell them what you said. I say you're buying an experience and honestly I steer them away from that. I say if you WANNA cut costs get a partner. Get Two partners three partners. You know whatever. That's the writing important piece here that I think that people don't think about you know there's a lot of us out here that want to get into airplanes and so a lot of people that actually have airplanes underutilized them because they don't even have friends that fly. I mean my God I part of me can't understand that. I don't think I have friends that are pilots. I think that's probably a self selection issue But you know when people buy an airplane and they don't you know their family or friends. Don't enjoy it with them You know a partnership is a great option and some of the alternatives to ownership. You know renting like you've mentioned certainly one. You can lease airplanes right. You could lease an airplane from somebody else and dry lease if they're under utilizing You know person for their aircraft they might WANNA dry lease at it. And it's not a prophet thing but people do that. You might be able to partnership there's a lot of great clubs out there Interestingly enough you could even borrow them I mean. Sometimes there are people that you get a good friend who got an airplane. He's like dude. Just fly it At least it doesn't sit there then right. I've had that numbers of times. I got four or five airplanes that You know friends and customers in mind that are like have you ever borrow my airplane. Just go take it now. Obviously don't abuse that But there are times that that's been a thing and When it really comes down to though I think the best advice I can give somebody. Who's thinking about buying an airplane is don't over by an airplane
Marketing Tips for Voice
"Voice is always something people talk about and struggle with yes. What is your perspective on this? How do you do it? Yeah so I guess I'll back up and say I come from a marketing background. And that's what I studied at Emerson College which is also in the voice scene which is very exciting to me here presenting and I worked at my first job was actually at Disney channel in marketing. And so that was my first foray into the field of entertainment and really learning how to market to a specific audience. So I spent I was actually at Disney for five years between Disney channel on. Espn and really getting that. Like well rounded experience their portfolios obviously massive and their marketing is like no other obviously globally so about five years ago I shifted into a creative development for social platforms and working with brands and influencers creators on social media that have huge followings and kind of driving those experiences across platforms and putting brands friend center of like the conversation on social as we know today like the tick tock most recently or I just saw pinterest or snapchat and there's all these like all these different platforms that people are creating content on reach mass audiences. And that's the area that I'm really interested in his putting brands into that conversation strategically and making it Finding emotional connections with audiences that resonate So that's where I say. They're excited yes. I think there's such a huge opportunity as I'm sure a lot of people do here To put more of course I party skills and the platforms. That voice assistance are on in front of these audiences but also third party skills obviously So yeah I'm super interested to learn more in here. Everyone here talking about it and and find the way in for people to discover more skills through cross platform strong. Yeah and so. Can you give us some either some tips or things that you've done personally or with companies and how you've been able to kind of market some new voice skills or flash briefings within social? Yeah absolutely so. I think first and foremost and I've heard a lot of people talking about this. Like being user myself of different voice platforms so essential because also prize myself. Sometimes and I'm like well like I didn't even have to think twice about like lifting my risk and asking Siri for like remind me to Xyz. So I do have. I have the echo show five on my desk. And that's kind of my go-to throughout the day For more so than like a Google search would be now so that's been really interesting just from like a consumer standpoint myself and I think is such a big part of like the creative development processes looking at your own habits and what market you fit into So that's been super interesting But back to your point in regards to content development on social media if I'm working with a brand or a client or a crater for that matter it's it's looking really deeply at their analytics and what drives the most engagement. Whether it's you know the most used they've got in or the most comments that a post received and what really resonated with their audience and diving into that niche an understanding the science behind why that resonated with people and then how to recreate that with other formats or other platforms to either reach the audience or expanded even further. Yeah that makes a lot of sense I think yeah looking at the data where people at what are they doing? How do you adjust that you were talking earlier about kind of creating emotional connections which? I am very much a fan of as well. How do you think somebody should do that? When it comes to creating a voicemail. That's a great question so and I guess it makes sense that my career started at Disney because speaking of emotional connections I grew up going to visit my family in Florida and going to Disneyworld families. So it's funny that I ended up working there That was like my lifelong dream so coming from that experience. I think it's getting to the root of what Your brand or your message really is and knowing not inside and out and then why that will attract consumers and connect them to your brand or message So I guess I could talk about Chop Chop which is the scale idea which is adorable. So yes you made. A skill called Chop Chop. Tell us about first off why you started it and kind go through and how it pertains to what you're talking about now. Yeah so this was back in early. Two thousand eighteen and Amazon did the life hacks challenge so that's initially how I caught wind of Even developing on this platform so I did have a Developer PARTNER THAT WE TEAMED UP. Shout out to John G so there's so many pieces that go into thinking about how to create a skill and developing it so for this life tack challenge. It's it's almost a little bit easier when you're put into a box to think outside of it. I know that's like cliche sort of like direction. A little bit of direction this not that go so when it came to life hacks you know being in the kitchen you your hands are messy when you're cooking you don't necessarily want to be having your ipad or your device or computer for that matter over the sink and I found myself in that position so many and obviously youtube is a huge resource for looking up. Like how do? I chop onion to get this exact dice that my recipe calls for or whatever it might be. So we've really said okay. The multi modal device the echo spot at the time was what we were working with the kitchen and we said it would be great if we could just say like. How do I chop up onions? Or what's the proper way to kind of mango or with these things that when your hands are messy? It's like you just want that information real quick so we We produce this scale chop chop. Did you cut up different fruits and veggies and the really exciting part was doing the visual element because both of us come from a content production background so we made in the dining room literally. We set up a production a small production studio and produced like over seventy five video. And I'm actually chopping the fruits and veggies like between the two of us. We really made every piece of this skill so we were fortunate to have the wide range of skill sets needed to cover the ground but it was over one hundred fifty hours of work that went into this so a lot of hard work and love into it but were super happy with the product. I still love talking about it. Obviously and I encourage people to use it at home and when they're cooking in the

"Hey what's going on I'm Stephen Miller and and this is a point if I was GonNa put you on the spot and ask you about how you manage your time. What would you say? It's not a trick question when it comes to determining how you spend your time you're part of a bell curve with the rest of society so take a second to imagine it. The left side of the bell curve is send slowly and includes about thirty percent of the people you know. These are the people who can't help feeling like there just aren't enough hours in a day because well they or serial procrastinators while at the opposite end of the curve. You've gotta quickly declining finding slope. Were just about every high. Performer is found. These people set apart for each of their priorities and are highly productive but they only make up about fifteen eighteen percent of the curve. The remaining forty five percent of people are smack DAB in the middle. They're always trying to find a groove. So they can power through the distractions but oftentimes. They're inefficient with their time. So the honest with yourself. Which group are you in and more importantly are you willing to do what it takes to move further further to the right of the bell curve and become more effective in the UCLA time? If your answer's yes you're in for a great show today because in a second of or three episode arc on setting yourself up to achieve your goals I'm highlighting some of the best productivity tools and time management strategies that can give you a real edge. Make sure you follow this show wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts to be we notified when the third installment drops next week but to set you on the right path. Today I'm joined by another one at Phoenix business. Journal's most admired leaders the managing director of Colliers International for Greater Phoenix Bob Mulhearn day-to-day Bob Overseas brokers team of over one hundred. But as he'll tell you managing that multi-million dollar business business isn't his sole focus in life quite to the contrary by making effective use of his time and using the skills he's picked up over his career he's been able to maintain the type of healthy work life balance L.. Instant many people dream of but few ever get to enjoy together. Bob And I are going to share some of our favorite productivity boosters but remember we can't make you use them. We can spark the fire but you have to keep it lit. So let's get after it here to share how you can make better use of your time and find more hours in your day. This is Bob Mulhearn time right now in. The world is such a scarce resource and so many people's minds. And what I really hope to do is actually we save you a one hundred hours by just providing some very practical tips to help you be more efficient and then of course give you some thoughts on how to use that time. I'm so that once you have it you use it in a way that believe leads to your success and happiness. I like to tell people a little bit about what I call Bob's deeply satisfying life. I have a wife of thirty one years nine wonderful kids for grandkids. I ran a big operation. Thirty million dollars plus commercial real estate business I one of the founders honors a great hearts academies and. I'm the president of the board. So it's great for me is that I'm usually by four thirty. Because they're going to get the kids up at six and I get an hour and a half of my own time and in that window of time I reflect on who I And I get my exercise in and so then the kids get up now. Family take time right is when it come into work. I have a different energy about me. Really what fires me up. Every morning is to take advantage of that time and to enter my day that way. I've made time an abundant resource in my life. But I've also been at this a long time so if you're just getting if you're a high schooler you have a whole different set of have responsibilities. I know because I have high schoolers. If you're just starting your career again you have different opportunities or even less freedom. Run your schedule that I do as somebody who's been my career for a long time. So what am I going to urge you to do is take one step at a time and hopefully today by the time Dan that'll be a couple of steps for you to take and one of them is if you're not always he's plugged in so to speak to. You're gonNA miss out on things and if you're not played in all the time you're gonNA miss but you're gonNA find over time that really. There's nothing really significant that you tend to miss out on and I think that another trap is that people don't find a way to stop their work in begin their lifetime. A lot of people like to say that does have to blend together and think crazy if you try to separate them I say that separating them as the only way to go and then I think there's another trap which feeling obligated to answer all these requests that come our way. There's so much data coming at us that people take the data turn into what they call information. People try to gather information together and call it knowledge. And I'm saying that all all that we fiercely compete to give away for free but what I'm talking about now kind of goes beyond all those and what I'll call the timeless wisdom on how life can be happy the and balanced no matter what the circumstance. So maybe we'll say my phone is killing me especially emails and I'm just going to say that I used used tool called sane box dot com S. A. N. E. B. O. X. dot com. It cost nine ninety nine a year and it can be used these two with whatever you're using it works with outlook it works with g mail. It works for the office three sixty five and what it does is allows issued to tell your emails where they should go some of them go straight to the trash. That's called the black hole and just to give you a sense. Every week I get about fifteen hundred emails and over seven hundred and fifty of each month are automatically deleted. They go right to the black hole so sandbox sends me an analysis of every week in thinks mm saving eight to nine hours a week. Let's say it was only five hours a week. I remember the first time it said one hour couldn't believe it. I'm thinking well that's fifty hours a year five hours again times fifty weeks and that's two hundred and fifty hours another easy tool that easily saves me an hour. A week is Calvin Lee. Dot Com C. A. L. E. The N. D. L. Y.. Dot Com in. It's a great thing somebody calls me says I'd like to get together. I invariably send them back. Link that says used as linked to find a time on Mike Calendar and you can set parameters on that so in other words I could send somebody a link that they couldn't make something on Mondays Fridays or nothing before ten or nothing after four. Four I can send a twenty minute link a thirty minute an hour a lunch and I will tell you that easily saves me an hour a week. So there's another fifty hours just by using the simple tool I also use upward dot com or tasks crab at her fancy hands dot com or grew dot com. The price is low. The turnaround around is fast and the results are reliable. So I'd encourage if you haven't used one of those to take a look at it. I remember one time saying I need someone to come to. My Office is to teach me a particular program and found out that the resource for that was literally across the lobby from me which I had no idea about and I found out by going online. So you never know what the solution is gonNA come from. But it's easy to post it and against save as much time as you want. And there's a lot of just time-saving mindsets one one of the most important mindsets is to actually pass on things. That are very good. I mean I was invited for example yesterday to a really good reception that was down but it was sandwiched between two things. Were very important to me was recreated and one was a family birthday dinner that same night and so you just have to say Gosh I. I don't care how good that was. I'm not gonNA just rush down there be apart and rush back and just those simple decisions have cleared me up to do what's most important and so the things I do work on. I think people say all the time. Gosh for guy. That's busy as you are. You're sure an easy guy to get an appointment with or busy as you are. You sure sure don't seem worn out when we're talking and you seem focused on me not distracted. I think all that comes from me just refusing to take on good things. That just just aren't as good as the most important things. But if you're tired you know you're not doing it because there is time to do things that are really good and time consuming consuming and still be able to have plenty of time for family time for reading time for reflection another one. I like. Don't lose by your own rules. So many people Samina train for whatever whatever this is and be ready by this date and usually the timeframe is not realistic and so they ended up losing because of a rule they said and they're afraid to change the rule I will constantly I say to myself. Hey that's something I decided I can change that in. It's simple mindset but it does save lots of time I just would look for progress not perfection. I've I've gotten to where I am one step at time and I'm older than probably most people listening to this but I will tell you day after day week after week. I've been serious about these things and and it's all based on a number of small steps I've taken and habits I picked up overtime. You need to start with something that you want to do. That would encourage you to take take one of the tools or one of the ideas and get that down master. Look at the list. Don't say I'd have to do this without say I would love to do that. Get down and then add the the second thing I think if you add two or three away three weeks from now you won't be doing any of them if you just add one and focus on it and it'll start you off in a path that will go on and on to great things.
