"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday july fourth two thousand and twenty one first up today i wanna talk about re fest two thousand and twenty one this october. The reef environmental educational foundation will again be holding refenced from thursday october fourteenth to sunday october. Seventeenth in key largo. That's four days of some great activity. The festivities kickoff on thursday. And one o'clock. You can then get a couple of days of diving in on friday and saturday morning with a two tank dive from either key divers amaury dive resort or essence. Those charters run about ninety dollars and they go out at eight am. If you wanna do a kayak tour you could also do that. For sixty dollars with florida bay outfitters. There are seven afternoon workshops and seminars and activities at john pennekamp park the coral reef restoration foundation. The history of diving museum and the florida keys. Wild bird sanctuary. Wow this sounds like a great event. Unfortunately i won't be able to make it down due to a family obligation but this sounds really good. Be sure to check out repressed. That's reef fest. Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside. I really liked my Olympus t g six. well don't worry. A new company named 'em digital solutions is producing the old olympics. Cameras binoculars audio gear. They took over in january. Two thousand twenty one. Their website is get olympus dot com. Now if you want to know more about the company checkout oem dash digital solutions dot com. This company is based out of tokyo. And it's led by sha guinea saga motto all digital solutions employees about two thousand people with evaluation of twenty seven billion yen or about three hundred and thirty three million. Us dollars the oem comes from the nineteen seventies oem solutions that they put in place to make cameras smaller more rugged and quieter. This is great news especially for us olympus fans. Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace. Well it's summer. And i know that a lot of people like to catch up on summer reading while they're on vacation we'll scuba diving.

A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)
"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us.

Colleen Aubrey On Amazons Huge 2020 And What It Has Planned For 2021
"My guest today is calling. Aubrey the vp of performance advertising at amazon. Who has been a mainstay at industry preview. Now while colleen's title focuses on performance. Her purview goes well beyond that. I think a lot of our previous conversations focused on the branding side of things and it's always a big year for amazon and advertise advertising. Twenty twenty was big in particular. It was on advertising reported. I believe a fifty one percent year over year surge in its last earnings called and booted in great part of by e commerce. So of two thousand twenty was huge for amazon. What does twenty twenty one bring will calling is here to tell us all about that calling great to have you on again. Thank you mine. It's great to be here so you know. Obviously we've all been endorsed for the last thousand million years in that. Interim heavier picked up any any new hobbies new ways of passing the time yes to be honest. Twenty twenty is not going to go down as my favorite year while in the first few months it was a little bit novel working from home experimented with a bunch of new things to take advantage of the opportunity so we don't example as we did a bunch of virtual dinner parties and so we had different cuisine types and then was like shopping. I'll challenge but really the end of the day. i do. Miss the variety of life. Before the coronavirus and i really miss the less structured creative process of sort of working with people in the office having said that I reflected actually on twenty twenty one. I returned to work on the full. January and amazon's cultures really grounded invention and focused on our customers. And i was. I realized how incredible it has been the ways that we found new in creative ways to work together. And i think i'm very proud of the work that my team did we scrambled we adapted and we kept building and we also Cya different that. I think we spent more time looking out for each other up. More time recognizing the difficulties. And i think we became more flexible and then for me personally had develop new ways of engaging with people and be willing to share a little bit more of a puzzle experience and encourage people to take care of themselves. So you're from visual happy. Hours to all hands to community in employee. Donations match programs We worked really hard to be safe and civil customers each other and the communities. We work in the in the past when you and i talk in person. Remember those days You know you always have a lot to say you always have a lot to say about you know new products. That amazon is building the way you guys are kind of increasing the capabilities within amazon advertising. obviously twenty twenty was was a year of tremendous change. There was a huge surge ecommerce companies. That might not have been familiar with ecommerce. Suddenly in it So how did that impact you know your roadmap in two thousand twenty and how does all that activity from twenty twenty impact impact. Would you guys planned to do. Twenty twenty one. Yeah there's questions. I think the first thing was that we realized very early in twenty twenty that it was even more important for us to keep inventing and keep delivering new features and capabilities advertises. You know we. We know that brands are facing a myriad of new challenges and uncertainty. And said you know the the impetus asta keep delivering became even greater because we need to give brands the products and features to be able to adapt and create maximum value from their advertising investments. And that also includes empowering the partners which agencies in tool providers they work with to help them to adapt to this set of very rapidly changing landscape and increase their efficiency by eliminating eliminating some of the more transactional pots of of managing ad campaigns. So i know you can't probably detail your entire twenty twenty one roadmap few free to if you if you want to but can you give us a hint of how you know how specifically things might have might be changing for amazon advertising this year. Well this year. I guess is really a- a case of sort of building on what i think of being pretty significant of focus in twenty twenty And so for advertising specifically we continue to improve the programs and services we have available full partners and these partners airport supporting now sellers who continue to be a big focus for us a vendors and our office and i think twenty twenty was a breakout year in terms of the pace of wanting features to our api and as such getting hat into the hands upon us and into the hands allow advertisers to adaptor that shifting environment in customer needs so as an example we launched four times as many features to our advertising. Api in twenty twenty twenty nineteen and we made progress moving beyond campaign creation management to address content marketing so we won't post than amazon attribution emission product to the api we also launch Api's for product eligibility keyword translation content moderation invoicing and manager account operations. So you know despite working virtually i think we we found ways to accelerate out delivery of features we found ways to work more closely partners and across the full funnel said advertising products. And i think that will drive out. Twenty twenty a roadmap his ford. We've also seen like a new categories of companies jumping into all nine retail due to the due to the pandemic has that has has has amazon advertising had to change or rethink those features in order to accommodate some of those e commerce newbies. Well i can't really speak to the broader category chen's but i can say that your small and medium-sized businesses. Continue to make over. Fifty percent of all units sold in amazon stores and in fact during the past holiday season small medium sized businesses in the us so nearly a billion bucks in our stores and we continue to invest heavily in supporting these businesses so amazon teams launch more than two hundred eighty tools and services to help as i last year. And i think this continues to be a priority as the before do those. Those small medium sized businesses interact differently with amazon versus like the the big corporations you think about what's essential to To a business. There's there's a lot that is that is common And so you know that sort of foams the basis of where we start like. What is the common advertiser will business need. And then of course you have variants in the way that this needs sort of as you get into more of the specific challenges that each segment of customers that we have will be will be working to address. But i think there's some common pieces that are really important regardless you want You wanna be too operate efficiently. And this is i think we're focused on. The api partners in and that group of of businesses will serve on the very wide range of sellers vendors and authors from the quite small to very large on markets. And so you that way. By focusing on that it's a way for us to actually enable everyone to have full access to a feature said to to operate Efficiently and to operate in a way that suits their business whether they using the advertising council or whether they're working with experts on that help them drive growth of the

Interview With Jaime Z
"People. Thank you for turning on this podcast as you hopefully know this is the podcast where we talk about what it's like to be high and sometimes we talk about some other things so yet again. We are here with a new interview subject today. We have jamie jamie. I think she has some history with cannabis but also in addition to which obviously we're going to talk about her history and what it's like but she also is the co founder of a recreational cannabis startup. So jamie please tell the folks about who you are and a bit more about this this cannabis startup share. So i have been working on all sorts of community engagement for years. And because of that i was invited to join a perception farms which has applied for several dispensary licenses and a craft girl license in the state of illinois and we are very equity based which the state's requirements are that but we are really sharing equity with all of the employees as part of our business model as opposed to just hiring one person that will then receive a minimum of fifty one percent of of the of the each so really a co-op model and trying to distribute wealth throughout communities in the chicago area. That's really awesome. Can you actually go a little bit more indepth. Because i'm sure a lot of people don't fully know all what's involved in this. The equity that illinois has put forth in terms of the cannabis legalisation that they did at the beginning of. I think it was the beginning of this year. Twenty twenty and. I can't even remember all the details myself. Obviously you don't need to go through every single little thing but can you give us just a little bit more information on what that is and then what that specifically means for your employees. Yes so in illinois really. The folks who infant carrying the burden of illegal cannabis throughout most of our history have been primarily people of color and illinois. Really wanted to make sure that as they embraced legalization that though was You know people who had been would be considered most underrepresented in the field of of cannabis in the legal cannabis recreation market that they have an opportunity for ownership because they have been the most impacted by by the war on cancer. Best and so it was really interesting. How illinois setup all of its laws and it systems in its application for the first round none of which is perfect in. There's a lot of lawsuits happening around that right now but really they wanted the lawmakers and the people that wrote the bill really wanted to ensure that there wasn't more perpetuation of white males owning and running all of the cannabis companies in illinois but really trying to support community members on actually people of color in illinois as license holders. Women are represented very much either in that space and so i'm a little bit unique in that way but still await person and so we really messed up and did a lot of interviewing and engaging with people who were important state would identify as a social equity applicants so that they lived in a region of state that was in most impacted by the war on cannabis. Or they were. They had a minor on a minor. Drug related offense on their record. That would actually be deleted by the new legalization of cannabis in illinois. I think those were like violent and it was under a certain amount and correcting But even with that there might just gonna ticket in the last few years that cook county at least in chicago has been pretty light on that. But in terms of your reprimand was if you're caught with cannabis and weren't supposed to have it before. It was legal but before that i mean in the situation could have been pretty graham. You could have gone to jail. It could've really lost part of your life and had a permanent record against you by having a is not really a big amount of cannabis on you. So that the way the law was structure. They were really trying to make amends reparations for those community members. Yeah i mean as much as they possibly can yet lives have been just absolutely ruined by

"Your mom was one of the pioneers in chicago when it came to sports broadcasting and happened to be woman and i think for people like your mom. I think you see the world changing. Were far more respectful and aware that it can't be a boy's game anymore. It's time to let the best people in the room. And if they happen to be a woman so be it. But i think the great thing jason. She checks a lot boxes. She's an asian woman who didn't play in the big league. That was such a stigma. Twenty years ago. Oh you didn't play in the big lake. My gosh i heard it well now. I think young women wake up and they say there's somebody looks like me in that role and until today really until friday. No one ever saw anyone looking like them in that role. And it's fifty. One percent of the world's population now suddenly is asian american woman years. The general manager of the miami. Marlins i think that alone or give hope to not just young women. Asian american men. Suddenly we say wait a second. Here's somebody looks like me. I can be that person. And i think for that. Our society is better off today. I have said that for so many years that all it takes is one seeing one person that looks like you in an industry to say. Oh my gosh that's it. I'm going to do this. Okay i want to do this. And that's what it took for me indian. You're so right. The number of people that she is going to affect the in the future generations. This is personal for a lot of us. And i'm still getting emotional right now because it is that big of a deal. Can she handle it mean. Just that's a lot of pressure on one person's shoulders and we don't mean to make it a bigger mountain than it is but truly when they are in the decision making and the hiring and the firing that is when we have progress because they make decisions on who gets some of those jobs. Great clink peggy. I think first of all yes. Undeniably qualified has been qualified for probably about fifteen years I remember sitting in our pool in los angeles with our feet in the water and she had just been denied one of those opportunities and i said listen. Your time's gonna come.
Day two and still counting
"Welcome to kiss. Miss mr simon. Your host kit crumb. I'm actually producing this podcast the day after the national election for the president and partly. Because i'm going to be talking about the electoral college right now. The vice president. Joe biden former vice president. Joe biden has two hundred and fifty three of the two hundred seventy electoral votes. He needs to become president. Donald trump has two hundred and fourteen of the two hundred seventy votes. He needs to become president in a presidential election. A landslide elections generally agreed to be one in which the winning candidate secures. At least three hundred. Seventy five or seventy percent of the five hundred thirty eight electoral votes in the electoral college on that note. I need to explain that. The reason the new president is sworn in until january is chiefly because the electoral votes aren't counted until the second monday december the rest of the time until january twentieth. The swearing of the new president is a matter of shifting information from one president to the other. But of course all of this begs the question. What's happening on november third. The general election in november is an indirect election in which voters cast ballots for slate of members of the electoral college. These electors then. Direct lee elect president and vice-president in essence you are voting for electors the number of electors in each state varies. The constitution gives each state a number of electoral votes equal to the number of representatives and senators. It has therefore every state has at least three electoral votes because the smallest dates how one representative and two senators. How does it work that. The candidate with the popular vote can lose. The election was look at the fictional stage of nominal volume population. Four hundred thousand okay. This a small state the majority of the voters gopher candidate a therefore all of nod knowles electors cast their votes for kennedy a those electoral votes. Go into as pot of electoral votes. That he's trying to fill up to the number of two seventy the first candidate to fill his spot with two hundred. Seventy electoral votes will become the next president of the united states. But it isn't quite that simple. There's a catch of sorts. Not all states award their electoral votes in the same way i. It's important remember that voters don't actually vote directly for the president. They choose electors to vote on their behalf. States or allotted a number of electors based on their population number of congressional districts. The larger states population the more electors is allocated for example. California is the most populous state. Thirty nine point. Five million residents also wholesome most electors at fifty five wyoming on the other hand is the least populous state with fewer than five hundred seventy nine thousand residents as such. It holds only three lack of states determine on their own how to distribute the electoral votes most days award all their electoral votes to the presidential candidate. Who wins the popular vote in that state and this is considered a winner. Take all system. This method of warding. Electoral votes is commonly known as winner-takes-all. So even if a presidential candidate wins fifty one percent of the popular vote in a winner. Take all state. He's awarded a hundred percent of the electoral votes. The exception to the rule is main and the of nebraska who distribute on a very different basis. Take longer to explain the desbois. Podcast has time so. I hope this has cleared up some information about electoral colleges and the fact that we vote indirectly for our presidential candidates. Now i'd like to take a minute to clear a couple myths first of all in the history of the united states. We have never known the winner of the presidential election on that. Electing day that would be november. Third it as always taken a few days to count up votes and i mentioned before that between al gore and george w bush that were thirty six days where they were trying to figure out who the winner was so. This is not unusual that this is the day after. We still don't know who the president is. Second second president. Donald trump is wanting to stop the county of votes. He's calling this voter fraud. And all of the votes that are being counted have to have been postmarked november third. This is not fraud. this is counting every american's vote or every american who voted so a couple things one. No we are really going to know who the president is for a day. Maybe two days after the national elections sometimes as long as thirty six days to were simply counting at every state. The votes came in postmarked on the election or the night of the election. which is november third. There is no fraud in this. i'm get chrome. Thanks for listening.

How To Help Professionally Successful Women Survive a Divorce With Allison Jeffereys
"Hello and welcome to another top advisor. Marketing podcast. Some of you have said to me on podcast, you know Matt. My Niche is focusing on women that's not an itch. It's fifty. One percent of the population is actually the majority of people on this planet. But today we're going to dive into how you could actually focus a lot more on women in an area that is very, very important and I believe is entirely underserved Alison. Jeffries is a divorce coach and author of a woman's guide to surviving divorce. A woman's guide to surviving divorce, she's also at the end when everybody hanging to the end because she's going to give away something that we'll have link in the show notes but and I was reading to prepare for this and if you know anybody who's been through a divorce if you've been through a divorce, it doesn't matter if you're a man or woman, you'll see yourself in these questions. She's really created this magnificent spreadsheet that will help you navigate conversations. But Allison. Let's let's start at the beginning. What do you do I mean how did you get here? Why are you? Why did you publish this book? Why did you want to become a divorce coach? Well I publish the book as a Personal Passion Project. We all go through life. Everybody has one book in them, but I think the important part of that story is, how did we get to the book? So I headed thirty five year career in the corporate world worked for Fortune One hundred companies Merrill Lynch prudential. Citigroup Wells Fargo worked in the financial sector worked in the securities area at Citigroup was. Managed a part of the country educating financial advisors on how to work with women in a group called Women Company. During that time it was in the middle of all the changes in the laws and regulations around financial advisers and tracking and documenting, and all of a sudden I had one month to take my seven and get it to continue to do my job. I did it. Couldn't believe it. But I, did it. They told me I had to take it I figured whether I failed or not. At least I'd taken it up pass. So I did have my seven had my sixty five. Loved the education of how women relate to money my degree is in psychology. So that was right up my alley really worked a lot on the difference in how women approached things how we make decisions, how we manage or don't manage our money those barriers between ourselves in money, the cultural issues, the professional issues, and all of those things that men had a hard time understanding about their women clients and why it was important to work with them. Left that career and honest to goodness. Being financial adviser with something I never wanted to do. So I. Let all that Go. I. Went Back into the corporate world in at a certain point in my life, I had a chance to stop. Rethink about what I wanted to be I. was on my second divorce. and. It was kind of one of those things where you common denominator here would be meat. So. I had to fix that become a big belieber marriage in I like men so. It was a it was self revelation process did a lot of writing. It became the book and it is a fictitious version of what a woman experiences when faced with divorce. Based on those common cultural and. thinking process. Things that are totally women. That we do. And so that's where I am. Okay. Why why should financial adviser scare? Why should insurance agents care? Why should financial adviser scare? Why is this such an important focus for people who have discussions surrounding money? Well. As you said, women are fifty one percent of the population. I don't know that math works for me the other reason it. Is More critical to financial adviser is back when I was it women company years ago we always cited that statistic that by twenty, fifteen, fifty percent of US wealth was gonNA transition into the hands of women. Well guess what it's happened. So whether women have come up with all this money through death divorce or old fashioned way we aren't it. We control a larger percentage of the investable assets in this country. But because of the cultural barriers because of the social morays that women have been raised with if we're anything over twenty five to thirty years old. We might not be managing them very effectively. And It just makes sense to me if you're a financial adviser to understand how to speak to women to get them engaged in Manning, they're managing their money.
Marketing To Gen Z
"Takes for joining me today Sarah. Much for having me Dan. I am thrilled and we are going to be talking today about marketing degen's E.. So just so critically important. So I would really love to start with asking you to. Explain how Jansy e customers are different than a millennial customers. Will first of all the Gen Z. and not many people know this but they are the largest living generation today. So fifty one percent of the world population is under twenty five today and it is a whole new world out there. They are changing the game for just about every industry out there and I mean who if the stereotype is true man that's a lot of brunch. But so they're different than millennials for few key reasons, and basically it's for a few reasons about why they. Different different things that happened while they were growing up. And the different environmental factors, different parenting styles, that kind of thing. So the first key reason why they're different whether or not the same that there was a huge shift in parenting styles. So we went from terms like helicopter parenting, Tiger parent to a new kind of parenting style with the other twenty, five, hundred, twenty, six, crowd called tech parenting, and with instead of doing things for their kids parents were. A little more hands off they were teaching their kids, how to find things for themselves online using technology, and they basically have re as a result they've raised a generation who's a little bit more independent than millennials, but also what they did almost inadvertently that they scared. The. Crap out of them about. Anything. That could go wrong online everything from online predators to identity theft and everything in between, and so you've also got this generation WHO's more risk averse millennials? So. In addition to that, they were raised unlike millennials who are raised in a boom economy. This generation was raised in a time of war and recession they were born after these. These are post nine eleven babies. They were born at a very different time and they have seen parents. Lose jobs, take pay cuts, clip coupons budget in a way that millennials never did while they were growing up. And so are actually far more fiscally conservative. I will say I I. Say that term and people go oh so they're cheap they're gonNA love coupons. That's not totally true. The actually just want more value for their money and they're very concerned about the value for their money. They're not a I wouldn't call them cheap this as a whole generation, but I would say they're more concerned with okay. What am I going to get for my money they're not? As concerned with coupons and sales and promotions as past generations. They actually are much more interested in social engagement then coupons or sales, which is the first generation to really be to really take that on. Their hungry because they were raised in a recession because of all the being fiscally conservative all of that. They are hungry for work They're not you know. Coming out of school in going on at, take off a year and go explore Europe or. Nobody's doing that right now. But really like for the past few years this generation as they're entering the workforce, they're just ready to get to work. They're hungry for work their side. GIG savvy they have like multiple jobs they've probably they're very entrepeneurship and fact sixty, one percent coming out of high school say that they don't want to work for somebody else they want to start their own businesses. So it's a huge. Shift in just a very it's a much more entrepreneurial mindset and they're not waiting till the get out of college either to start their businesses are just starting them in high school in college like they're just doing it on the side because the technology is so readily available.

The new TikTok-Oracle company named ‘TikTok Global’ plans to go public in a year
"We are expecting an announcement in the next day or so on the approval of a new entity that I'm total be called tick top global getting some new details from a source close to the situation about why this proposal is expected to be approved and makes this new tick tock global majority owned in the US by source explaining that today by dance is forty percent owned by us, investors couldn't KKR SEQUOIA General Land and. And it's fifty one percent owned by Chinese nationals. Now, a new tiktok global would mirror those ownership stakes. So bike dance selling anything more than about ten percent to Oracle would make the company majority US owned now is expected to by about twenty percent of this new company tiktok global. Now, the sale of an additional stake to Walmart would further increase US ownership over that fifty percent mark multiple sources telling me that tiktok global plans to file for an IPO on one of the US stock exchanges in about a year that would again further dilute Chinese ownership and sources. Tell me that Walmart would get a seat on the. Board the board would be subject to US government approvals. I'm told by a source close to the situation and the CEO and C. Suite would be American. Now, this comes as the companies, of course, looking for a permanent CEO replace Kevin Mayor The New York Times reporting that among those that Tiktok has talked to Kevin System instagram's founder and former CEO? We are awaiting word from the president on this the deadline he said on the deal is this coming Sunday for the fact that over fifty percent of the corporate ownership would be us-based seems very much key Melissa to approval of this deal.
Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"Unless Congress takes action, millions of Americans are likely to be evicted from their homes. Berry soon, and this problem is more than just a crisis. This is a crisis that the American people are dealing with, but there's also a crisis when it comes to Congress and how utterly? Our lawmakers are when it comes to providing the economic relief that Americans desperately need so there have been numerous stories published about the number of Americans who are likely to be addicted, but these numbers keep ballooning so for instance last week, the Federal Moratorium on Evictions and also on federally backed mortgages expired, and so there are some states that have implemented their own addiction. Moratoriums but you have to keep in mind. Mind that some states have not done so and we still have tens of millions of Americans who are jobless who lost their healthcare coverage as a result of being laid off in the middle of this pandemic, and then you also have Republicans who refuse to extend the unemployment benefits that were provided under the cares act. That was the additional six hundred dollars a week. That Americans would receive if they filed for unemployment. Unfortunately it seems like there are some members of democratic leadership who were going along with the lies and deceptions that are being message to the American people. So before we get to that I want to share some statistics with you. The Urban Institute estimated. That provisions covered nearly thirty percent of the country's rental units and I'm talking about the Be Moratorium on evictions by one estimate. Some forty million. Americans, could be. During the public health crisis, and of course, this is the most unsurprising part about all of this minority. Groups are the most. Vulnerable when it comes to fiction, so people of Color, according to CNBC are especially vulnerable, while most while almost half of white tenants say they're highly confident. They can continue to pay their rent. Just twenty six percent about african-american tenants could say the same around half. Hispanic tenants said they have little to no confidence. They'll be able to stay in their homes. And if you look at data, state-by-state to see how states are impacted by this. You Look at Louisiana, for instance, fifty percent of ten say that they can no longer afford their rent. A fifty one percent who say that they can't afford their rent in Florida fifty eight percent, in Tennessee fifty nine percent in West Virginia and again Benjamin love for you to jump in the frustration. Here is the utter lack of leadership, not just in in the federal government with the trump administration, but also with Congress right what we're seeing here is just it's. It's shocking, but it's not surprising race. It's almost like the natural combination of how are leadership has been leading the direction. They've been going. They are really pushing the people as far as they possibly can I. Think you are Frankin Clippers stain on. Twitter, said that they're trying to find the very least that they could possibly do without causing a riot, but you know when these numbers start hitting the fan right when people actually are put out of their homes with nowhere to go, and then if they if they're lucky enough to get in a homeless shelter night, we do not have the capacity to house. All of these people in the homeless shelters across this country, but even in that scenario they would then be exposing their families to covid nineteen. This is not something that's but the fact that they're playing chicken and taking it. All the way to the wire is is disgusting. Absolutely, so you have the moratorium on fictions on one hand, and then you also have the issue of the unemployment benefits which are set to expire on the last day of July, and so of course, when you hear the rhetoric coming from the Senate Gop, and also from the White, house, there's this live that keeps getting repeated over and over again about how well these unemployment benefits are just too high, and as a result are refusing to go back to work. In fact, one of the Republican senators. Who was her pet? This nonsense was Ted Cruz over the weekend. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. And then I wanNA. Compare what he said to democratic. Leadership Listen. In terms of the unemployment benefits do you object to providing any kind or any amount of federal boosts unemployment at this point, because not everyone is choosing to be out of work. The policy that Nancy Pelosi Democrats are pushing adds an additional six hundred dollars a week of federal money to unemployment. We have unemployment system system. Down, to seventy percent. Problem is for sixty eight percent of people receiving it right now. They are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job and I'll tell you. I've spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas. We're trying to reopen and they're calling. Their waiters and waitresses are other busboys, and they won't come back, and of course they won't come back is the federal government is paying in some instances twice as much money to stay home, but APP may, and to a lesser amount. At look at what we ought to focus on instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. What's a recovery bill or coverage? Bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America. WHO's working? That actually gets people back to work.

don't know which way is coming from in only three Douglas yeah we suppose the slippery Doug so he destroys Nike and then this friggin guy goes to a for the July party wearing Nike sneakers are you mental he smokes do it I mean it the Nike and even call for a boycott he's basing his screen but wouldn't it make sense when you look in your closet you put on shorts and a shirt in Paris makers alike probably shouldn't wear the nineties today after the nine tweets I somehow got me national news got me a shout out from Rush Limbaugh maybe I shouldn't wear my Nike's in public yeah I get it maybe but then I guess before all this happened fine okay I get it but use your free man we're gonna start we not pictured dog to what you gonna do next with the really well with his outfit band is really completed the ValuJet lacked nineties with the white swish that's the belts do just Chillin now I don't know if it'd match the bill this is one of my pet peeves when people guys with a brown belt black shoes I can't I look look at the AZ family link that I sent the price I can't it's hard to it's hard to tell but literally two days two days after destroying Nike gave great tweets stand up for marker Doug Ducey wears Nikes to a fourth of July party for eighty then you wanna white now does it make sense why I called it a make Sally esque move not very smart not very good yeah but there you go girl and by the way there were rumors that it was an old picture things like that but ABC fifteen up in Phoenix verified it that it was legit stuff I am a and the governor yeah spokesperson put some stuff out today I didn't say that this is an old picture spokesman for the governor's office course I tried to play do you know now what's the big deal that kind of card Patrick patak P. tech he was with me it's been by this is out there all intertwined he was make Sally's a spokesperson we're schedule or whatever meat media liaison he was a make Sally which is a congresswoman all of a sudden this guy I mean it's it's McCain tentacles all over this down toward the Republican Party unfortunately except for Kelly where do you see that I mean is in a brown belt it is a brown belt isn't it it is a brown so now he's were Nikes wearing a brown belt with a black sneakers and that shirt with blue shorts should not be talked and they don't look good that's that's what happens is probably to live you noticed the sleeves go all past the shoulder yeah and that's what happens when the guys get the bigger got because you got to get the bigger shirt can have it so then it gets along at a target in that point you know what take it take a little lesson from don bronzer on the legs because wow you know you know I don't go there filter on camera yeah you know to do anything that you know anyway so I spoke first Patrick but to be tak said a really yes the governor owns nineties stop the presses the governor didn't call for a boycott it even say the company wasn't walking to do business in Arizona and it's true he did say you're not getting a a any tax incentives anymore but he wasn't exactly nice I give Nike actually did come to Arizona become a laughable after the governor basically just call them out for exactly what they are okay I love this in the Arizona family story Republican political consultant defended the governor shoe selection as one of quote convenience the days of it if a Democrat did this you'd rip maging ways from Sunday so how can I not rip Doug Ducey for this right so some consultants who the hell is this guy named for the S. first name in this story right what what what it is what is this person's it somebody the last name a dollar Tino those shoes are not new I don't think you give them any new money I think those shoes are holdovers from some quite sometime ago so they had that the media had to go to a consultant to guess when when I'm he bought the nineties well you know I'm a Republican consultant so those are all overseen by those in battle doesn't matter so you gotta love that don't you you freaking kidding me any coca Nino county Democrats tweeted out a picture of a governor do see in the nineties and wrote wow at Doug Ducey standing on principle wearing as Nike is for the for the July wouldn't you stop making you know if they if the yank the a you know he said they they basically crap don America the American flag the Betsy Ross flag right then why would you ever wear anything Nike again I'm in my son we bought Nikes for him because the only thing that that fits you did this style of the base of the the narrowness of his foot or the with whatever the hell it is but we told him you're done after this so anyway goes through shoes everywhere every three to four weeks because he six may destroy them but yeah no we're we're done better fact we're actually we're out on Friday and he looked at something that was nice you know I said we're not getting ninety said why why and my wife with a mission she said because Nike hates the American flag hi Mike usually it's me that makes these bold crazy stuff are great bold statements to my son and she just came out and said it she's had enough the one who does a weed we used to not want to offend anybody would care about other people's feelings is over that so my somewhat understood rest today data like Nike and like the American flag I like making elegant I

"You put skin in the game to create the right type of message, and then basically the message gets passed, and if the message gets passed across a period of time, you know, multiple messages get passed, and you're basically assuming that fifty one percent of the the network. The miners are acting in coordi- with the with soda call. So hence the fifty one percent attack. Yes. So basically. Peered Sapir w is as long as we assume that fifty one percent of the miners or just mining bitcoin and not doing something nefarious, then we are good. And now how do you make that fifty? One percent harder and harder to achieve you basically. Okay. So wait, make a mining harder and harder be before we go there. What would be the solution for the actual Byzantine general? It's basically the same kind of thing. So the Byzantine generals have to create the note that says, we're going to tack on Monday. We're going to coordinate to attack on Monday, and then they have to stamp it with wax, but they have to stamp it with a very special type of stamp that takes hours to create the insignia for the stamp. Okay. So basically we know that the city may know how to do the special insignia because they may have intercepted, but they're probably not gonna be able to do the insignia on. The wax before one of the other generals notes gets to us. So the city is one player and we have ten generals and the city would have to intercept the correct note redo the wax insignia and then send the message on before. One of the other generals note which went straight through the city, didn't stop there and had to be redone, got to the other side. So we can have some number of messages that were intercepted or incorrect. But the majority are probably going to get to us first with the correct insignia because it takes so long to create the insignif- excellent in. So what's the relationship between the Byzantine generals problem in Byzantine full tolerance. It's like a fancy way of saying, this is not a full solution to the Byzantine generals problem, but this is a resistance to the faulty -ness of it. You know? So basically, it's like there is no hundred percent guarantee that the messages will all be correct, and everything will be perfectly coordinated. But if we assume that more than half of. The generals are able to get the messages through with the correct insignia and in a timely manner than we can trust the fact that Monday is the day to attack. And so- Byzantine fault tolerance. Just means we're tolerant to the message untrustworthiness in some way enough to effectively communicate with each other and complete our tasks. So does proof of stake also have to deal with this problem? Yeah, proof of stake is literally it's almost exactly the same as as mining. But the only difference is, is that instead of having the unit of competition be computational power, the unit of competition is stackable coins themselves, but the way the way that proof of stake works is exactly the same. It's a lucky number. The the only difference is that the bounce is used to calculate the lucky number rather than just brute forcing through. Random, like tons of random numbers for the general. If say you we just described proof of work. What would the Byzantine generals prom look like if this was a proof of stake or is that even with badly question? It's an interesting question. Okay. So the proof of stake version of the Byzantine generals context wouldn't be the messenger has to carry a bag of gold. That is Byzantine, imperial gold. Okay. And every messenger has to carry the bag of gold and the more gold, they have the more likely the message came from the Byzantine empire itself. So if you have a messenger that comes through, he did the correct insignia. He's also got the Byzantine goal. He's basically he has a stake in the Byzantine empire. He didn't run off and spend the gold. The more gold it is. The more secure the system is because if you send off a messenger and he's a traitor and he's got million Byzantine coins or whatever. He could. He could just say, oh, I'm out of here.
