"Welcome to the tech meme ride home from Monday, February 21st, 2022, I'm Brian McCullough today, open sea says 32 users had NFT stolen when they were scammed into signing malicious smart contracts, Mark gurman tells us every Mac he expects to be released this year is a new crackdown coming for Chinese tech and Ford is revving up its attempts to unseat Tesla at the top of the EV mountain. Here's what you missed today in the world of tech. Reminder that crypto is code and that smart contracts are thus code. Also, code with often irreversible mechanisms inside them. The latest example is open sea says 32 users had NFTs stolen from them as part of a targeted phishing campaign that scammed them into signing malicious smart contracts. In other words, this isn't just stealing your password and then stealing your stuff. This is tricking you into actually signing away your stuff because the contract allowed it to happen. And thus, in the world of this enforceable contract, it wasn't illegal. Quoting coin desk in the wake of a series of viral tweets from panicked NFT traders leading marketplace open sea says it's investigating quote rumors of an exploit regarding smart contracts connected to its platform, a vulnerability that may have cost traders valuable tokens. We are actively investigating rumors of an exploit associated with open sea related to smart contracts, open sea posted to Twitter Saturday night U.S. hours. This appears to be a phishing attack originating outside of open seas website. Do not click links outside of open sea IO end quote. Around ten 50 p.m. Eastern Time, open CEO Devin finzer, followed up in a tweet that, quote, 32 users thus far have signed a malicious payload from an attacker and some of their NFTs were stolen. He added that the company is quote not aware of any recent phishing emails that have been sent to users. End quote and suggested a fraudulent website may be to blame. Open sea had planned to revise its smart contract, the code governing its trading platform essentially by releasing a brand new contract on Friday. The upgraded contract was intended to ensure old inactive listings on the platform would eventually expire. On Twitter, traders shared what they'd initially thought were official open C emails about the migration process from contract a to contract B peck shield, a blockchain security company that audits smart contracts stated that the rumored exploit was quote most likely fishing a malicious contract hidden in a disguised link. The company cited that same mass email about the migration process as one of the possible sources of the link. The apparent attacker's address, which the blockchain explorer website, ether scan has already slapped with a fish slash hack warning badge, holds about $1.7 million worth of eth, as well as three tokens from the board ape yacht club, two cool cats, one doodle, and one azuki end quote. And quoting the verge. The attack appears to have exploited a flexibility in the wyvern protocol, the open-source standard underlying most NFT smart contracts, including those made on open sea. One explanation linked by CEO Devin finzer on Twitter described the attack in two parts. First, target signed a partial contract with a general authorization and large portions left blank. With the signature in place, attackers completed the contract with a call to their own contract, which transferred ownership of the NFTs without payment. In essence, targets of the attack had signed a blank check. And once it was signed, attackers filled in the rest of the check to take their holdings. I checked every transaction said one user who goes by niso. They all have valid signatures from the people who lost NFTs, so anyone claiming they didn't get fished, but lost NFTs is sadly wrong. Open sea was in the process of updating its contract system when the attack took place, but open sea has denied that the attack originated with the new contracts. The relatively small number of targets makes such a vulnerability unlikely since any flaw in the broader platform would likely be exploited on a far greater scale. Still, many details of the attack remain unclear, particularly the method attackers used to get targets to sign the half empty contract, writing on Twitter shortly before 3 a.m., Eastern Time, open CCO, Devin finzer, said the attacks had not originated for open seas website. It's very listing systems or any emails from the company. The rapid pace of the attack, hundreds of transactions in a matter of hours suggest some common vector of attack, but so far no link has been discovered. So I tweeted over the weekend, say what you will about the 3000 year history of capitalism, but it has pretty much locked down property law and the mechanisms they are in. Like, I'm all for improvements to the current system, but as Chris mattern tweeted quote, read the contract is not a long-term solution for trust and safety in web three. Right, look, if I own a Picasso and someone breaks into my house and steals it, I have recourse. Known as the legal system, even if I were to be duped into signing a blank check, I'd have recourse known as the state, which would attempt to retrieve my stolen items and punish those responsible. I too, as I've said before, find the idea of functioning markets and legal systems that exist without. The enforcement mechanisms of a state without centralization very appealing. But in practice, like if you were to steal my Apple shares, I can get made whole for that. I like that system. It's a system that's existed for thousands of years going back to warlords and aristocrats, writing the laws to protect their own property rights at the expense of, say, the serfs and everybody else. And I agree, that sucked morally and hopefully it got slightly better over the years. Maybe in modern times, it's only slightly less unfair to the little guy, but capitalism and western legal canon is also a system that works, has worked. It can be reformed and made more efficient, no doubt, but it's not exactly broken, so putting it on the blockchain fixes what? As ever, I'm pro web three. And all the ideas surrounding it, but being completely maximalist about decentralization as a part of web.

"You can't drive profits and profits are what you need in a business like a long-term sustainable profit. That's just hard to do. But that's why we walked away. You won't away, and you did the thing that nobody's nobody would say is right. So I have a friend who just who two years ago started a physical print magazine. Excellent. And she's done super well, it's completely counterintuitive, right? Because like, are you mad? You know, like, nobody's printing magazines, and she has a very high end magazine. It does very, very well. You encounter intuitive, and you went retail. You bricks and mortar, a young crack? What's going on? Well, we didn't necessarily go to sell to other retailers. We just did, we just did direct to consumer ourself. We said, we're going to drop our prices about 30%, because we kept having to creep our prices up to accommodate this increasing Amazon margin. And we called ourselves a direct to consumer company. And I kind of considered Amazon at the time, like a hybrid hybrid retail because they took 15%. It wasn't Keystone markup where they were taking half. Now they're taking half, I've jacked my prices up. I'm not really a direct to consumer company. I'm just a retailer. It doesn't sell in Walmart. I just sell on Amazon. So we said, that's not the future. We dropped the prices by 30%. We actually, we continue to sell on Amazon. We just drew our prices up, high enough to cover their costs. So it was like, I don't know, 30% higher to buy on Amazon. Still today, 10% of our sales go through Amazon. And what that tells you, I mean, they're buying a tower paddle board. The only other place it's sold is on tower paddle boards dot com and they're willing to pay 30% is not a small amount in this product. Another $150 to buy that through Amazon. And they're not even like, oh, can I buy this direct from the brand? 10%, don't care. And you know why that is? It's because Amazon is a convenience store. No longer is the best price, the best deal. It's not concerned about consumers. It's not concerned about the brands. It's just a very convenient way. And I love it too. I'm very price and sensitive, though. A lot of people, like, you know, they care. They can save a hundred bucks here, hundred bucks there. They'll do that. But that's what that's kind of what we did is we got away, and we went more direct to consumer. And we cut a cost down, but we took a haircut of 4 million in revenue in a very short period of time. And that almost wiped us out. Some other things sort of happened at the same time. We were diversifying. We got into electric bikes with power electric bikes. We started a beach club, which is an event space. So we could office out of this event space so we would pay zero rent basically collect rent instead of pay rat. And so, I mean, that's the name of the game now is, okay, you're in this vulture of this world. Get your burn rate to as low as you can and try to survive. Because if you can survive an organically build a brand or 20 or 30 years, I think those direct to consumer brands that can do that are going to be the ones that's the future. So I want to talk more about that when we come back, we're at the end of part one here. Because a lot of people might be feeling like, you know, I'm being killed by Amazon. I used to, I even sold them on myself on Amazon. I was threatened by them and I sold stuff by them. And now I can't even afford to do business with Amazon because they're killing me on the other end. And I want to talk about what you're seeing is riding on the wall for not just retail, but for business, you know, like, what is the writing on the wall? I want to come back to that. Talk more about that. In part two. So I want to thank you for being with us for part one. If you have been enjoying, of course, you've been enjoying this. You've been enjoying this conversation. I want to make sure that you know how to get hold of Steven. And here's how you get a hold of him. We're going to ask him to tell you all about that. And of course we'll make sure it's all posted in the show notes. Stephen, you tell people how they can find out about you about your products and about all your wonderful resources. And of course about the book. Yeah. So I'm pretty easy to find on our websites because we are small companies things listed there. You can call up the number and talk to me so tower paddleboard dot com tower electric bikes dot com, the tower beach club dot com and our new sort of.

"I'm just delivering the news. It's happening. And then the next year we did 7 and a half million and probably about 4 million of that was. And that's the point the inflection point where the Amazon revenues were bigger than our own revenues. And I started to get worried, obviously you got this one big customer, something something happens there. And about the same time about 2016, Amazon, I think went to the dark side. There were always two sides within Amazon. It was Amazon retail, which operated like a Walmart where they would buy products and they would sell them and they would undercut your Matt pricing and they would just sort of abuse you. And then there was this marketplace where you could set your prices and do stuff like that. And Amazon took about a 15% fee. And today, in any of those marketplaces, Amazon takes about 50% of your revenue, not just from the fees, but they force you to advertise because it's a very crowded marketplace. So we've basically gone and around right back into retail. And none of the sort of the savings of globalization, the fact that we can make a sneaker in Asia for three bucks and it sold a 120 in retail, direct to consumers started to say, hey, we'll sell this sneaker for 20 bucks. That was there for a while. And then it disappeared, because now we're back to retail. You got to buy it through Amazon. It's a $120. Amazon takes 60 the sneaker. We're just back to retail. But, you know, 4 million in sales with Amazon. You jumped ship. We walked away. Yeah. And we intentionally walked away. You know, the writing on the wall was that they were taking more and more and now you're going to have to advertise and every year. And this is like in any advertising any online marketing that somebody finds. It works great for a couple of years. And then marketers find it and it gets ruined. And then it gets really expensive. It's like paper click in the 2000s, even before AdWords existed. We were doing it for a scent to click. And now you can't even make it work for most businesses unless you sell some kind of scammy product or there's a huge margins on some kind of supplement or something. You know, so we saw Amazon starting to go down that path. And it's funny because a lot of people today are all like, oh, I'm going to start myself on Amazon business. And I said that the sale, like three or four years ago, the only person who makes money on that is Amazon. And you.

"But now, if you think about that, 23% more productive, while homeschooling, looking after your kids, you know and having to stop the dog barking or whatever the hell else it is. You know, you've saved some time because you're not wearing pants, but that's about it, right? And it can be a so, you know, it's fascinating that this old industrial age thinking is that if you're in the office, you're productive, but it's not true. But let's take that over because again it's a constraint. It's a revolution that we had no choice but to be part of. And then you've got the other side of that. And that constraint is. There are the constraints given by others. IE, let's talk about this Amazon effect. You know, you were a darling from Amazon, as I said, Bezos talked about you in the stock holders letter. Shareholders. You and then you stop doing business with them. Talk to us about the Amazon effect and the impact on you and what you guys did with it. 'cause it was counterintuitive. Yeah, and this has been an evolution, right? Like they did a case study on tower paddleboard selling on Amazon at Harvard. And that was published. I want to say 2014, 2015 or something like that. And I go back and I sort of talked about they present that case to the class, then they do questions, whatever. I did that for a period of about 6 years. And it's the position towards Amazon's completely switched. And in this case, they talk about four different ways to work with Amazon. Don't work with them. Sell through them. So there's four different options. Each of those options was the correct choice in a different time. In a parent of 6 years, that's crazy how fast the world has worked. And in the most recent book on Amazon, by the guy who wrote the everything store, Brad stone, he sort of the big author that writes about Bezos, he's got about a page in there and my first quote in there is talking about how Amazon is this great company that really cares about brands. And my last quote is Amazon doesn't care whether you live or die. And really, that's how far their position is changed. And so it's incredible. And it's not just Amazon. It's the Internet world today. And I first saw this back in 1999 working for this Internet portal for the radiology community. And we went from startup 7 people to dominant industry leader in like three years where we took over. It was a news and information and education portal for that industry, but we went from nowhere to disrupting all of the trade magazines to basically having a monopoly on that market. Everything in the Internet world tends towards monopoly. You have Google having 80% 90% market share. Amazon, everything goes towards monopoly. And that's very dangerous because the advent of the Internet was sort of the disintermediation of the middleman. Everybody got out of the way. Yeah. The idea of democratizing this possibility, really. And it's become in many ways an industrial age, you know, like well, you had three or four people who were at the top of that game. And that's what you've got now with Google. You've got, as you said, with Facebook with Amazon. You know, it's like these guys own everything. Yeah, it's made the entire world like a little tiny town and you have one big company that runs everything. It's interesting you'll see how China reacts to this. Like China is very because they have their own little monopoly called China, right? And over there. Just little. And they go like other monopolies. So they just shut these things down because they're like, we know where this leads. In America, we're like, you know, we want to be democratic and free market or whatever. But it swung so far that the government does have to go in and break these things down because they're starting to be really bad. Repercussions from these monopolies. So you did something so you like we talked about. You were in there, you talked about Amazon being the fabulous company who cares about brands and now they don't give a shit and what do you live or die? So it's a complete flip. And you you were doing business with Amazon at, can you tell us the numbers? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So I have context. Of course. What was this really like? We started in 2010 as a company. I think the first year we did 3000 and sales or something stupid, we've kind of started at the end. The next year we did a quarter of a million in sales. The next year, we did 1.3 million. That was like our third year in. And in that year, we did 250,000 on Amazon. And we had just got on to Amazon that year. So it was already 1520% of our revenue. But first year out, the next year we did 3.1 million total in the company and we did a million on Amazon. So our Amazon sales grew 400%. The next year we did a little over 5 million and we did like 2 million on Amazon. And so now Amazon is like 40% of our revenue. The next year, and that year actually, when we did 5 million, we were named, the number one fastest growing private company in San Diego. And we were number two 39 on the Inc 500. We were growing at such a rate because and it was largely, you know, it was a small company, like 5 people, but we were leveraging the reach of Amazon, where, at the time, Amazon was a dirty word by a lot of retailers for a different thing. It's like people are buying our products and they're selling it on Amazon and I was like, well, this is kind of the future. It was disrupting retail as Jeff Bezos likes to say, you know, I didn't put you out of business..

"Work less and they're not trying to work 60 70 hour weeks and get heart attacks. They're trying to do an efficient. And this just fit perfectly with their ideals. And that's why it was huge in Germany. So, you know, I mean, because I think everybody got sort of very attracted to the idea when Tim wrote the book the four hour workweek, right? And then we all realized, well, that's a lovely idea. And certainly I think in many ways, it's fueled the gig economy and it's helped a lot of people in that way. But for those of us who run businesses with employees, obviously that's not what we're doing. And though we may have got some great hacks from it, because I love the book. But this idea of a 5 hour work day, I mean, I think that that is revolutionary, purely and simply because we only have to I mean, you don't have to be a genius to look around, you know, just do your own research by just asking people, you know, how many people do you know who are completely burned out? Most people have burned out. Now you've got then on top of that you've got COVID came in. You've got the pandemic and the pandemic came in, and now we are here as we're doing this interview. It is in the last quarter of 2021. And we are in the great resignation as it's been named, where people are en masse walking away, saying, you know what? I'm done. I'm done. I don't want to do this job anymore. I found that I can stay at home. I find I can do some gigs at home, or I'm just not willing to do 60 hours a week anymore. So in many ways, this book, the 5 hour workday resonates even more now post pandemic. Are you are you hearing anything about it in that context in the context of today being, you know, this great resignation period? Yeah, there's a lot more interest in this. I mean, the book was published in 2016 and all of a sudden there's a lot more interest around it because what the book did was it put an it was the four hour workweek which you talked about. That was very formative book in my life as an individual entrepreneur. And that was basically opting yourself out of the system. A lot of those same principles are used in this book, but what we're doing is we're applying it to an organization or a nation. How do you just not get yourself not working and get everybody else to do your bidding, but how do you do this to an entire organization? So that's really what this book was about. So the 5 hours was a constraint we put on. And the power of startups is essentially constraints. This is why if you have three guys in a garage and you have a $100 million $100 million business with a thousand people working at it, you can almost bet the three guys in the garage are gonna disrupt them in today's world. And this is because of the constraints. They have no money, they have no people, you know, they have to find a hack if they're going to survive. Yes. And they find that hack and that hacks ends up disrupting the larger company, which has zero constraints on it. This is why governments very bad at business. There's just no constraints built into the system, right? Exactly. So the 5 hour work that was an artificial constraint, the pandemic was a forced constraint upon society. Okay. You can't travel for business. Okay, you want to interview somebody, you're going to have to do it by Zoom. Your meetings are going to have to be by Zoom. You guys can't go to the office. You have a restaurant. You can't have people sit down inside. Here's your constraints. Get creative. And that creativity builds productivity and it builds sort of better ways to do things. So there's a lot of good that's going to come out of the pandemic. I mean, there's a lot of bad that's going to come out of it, but it's a very tumultuous time. And it's interesting. And this is all the parallels between the 5 hour workday and what has happened with the pandemic and remote work is just throw a constraint on something and let's see what happens. And I think what it exposed is that a lot of people were working 60 or 70 hours in the office. Now they're working from home. They're working two or three hours. You know, watching their kids on the side and they're just as productive. Their boss has no clue. And some of these people have 5 jobs. I mean, I read about this humorous thing where people are making $750,000 a year because they just apply for a job, do nothing for two months and just keep applying for jobs until they get fired. And they can work multiple jobs from home, which is a nightmare for the company, right? Because you can't judge productivity. But this is the world that we're living in. Well, one of the things we know, actually, from the research because I remember having corporate leaders coming to me and going, like, you know, we're terrified of this. This work from home. We just don't know if people are just going to be lazy and not do anything. And what was actually discovered was that people were on average, it comes up to 23% more productive..

"Is a seasoned Internet entrepreneur on the cutting edge of direct to consumer revolution. Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together and help me to welcome the authors of 500 and. Thank you for having me on, though. Very welcome. How are you doing today? Oh, good, good. Good. Nice. San Diego. Yep. I'm sure it is. So the place I always like to start the show is, you know, in the context of leadership development. What is the question that we should be looking for answers to that we're not? You know, as somebody who is a consultant and adviser, a guide. I'm often brought in a master question and the reason I don't answer it is because they're asking me the wrong question. I can give them the answer, but it's the wrong question. So what do you think is the question we're not asking that we need to ask in order to develop ourselves as leadership and prepare ourselves for the monsters that are coming in the form of Amazon's et cetera? Yeah, I think we're just in a really tumultuous time in the world and in a very fast moving time. Like the business clock moves 5 times faster than it did 20 years and 20 years ago it moved 5 times faster than that. And so it's getting to such a speed that it's getting really hard to manage organizations, plan into the future and do anything like that. So I think as a leader, I believe number one trait you need to have is the ability to admit you're completely wrong and to completely rethink what you're doing because I mean too many people will just sort of stick their head in the sand and pretend what's going on is not going on. And see if they can sort of hold out. You want to declare disaster, get out in front of this. And be looking for the next thing. You know, I love that it's not just a willingness to admit that we're wrong, which is oftentimes difficult for leaders, but the willingness to say, I am going to be wrong. It's kind of future paste as well. And so let's get more information. Let's get better guidance. Let's put the ego to the side. That's a very good how can I put my ego to the side, admit that I'm wrong and so that we can survive. That's a really simple but powerful piece that I think is undermined. In the introduction I talked about how the daily mail had said you were the best boss in America. The German newspaper said the world's best boss. Why the world's best boss? You know, what are you doing? You're giving candies to everybody. And it's kind of comical because we're relatively small company here. And you're not running to easy to be a big boss. Company. Well, but still the world's best boss is still comparing you to all those across and I'm not saying I'm not putting on this person saying, okay, live up to it. But how did that happen? How do you end up getting that title? Yeah, I'll tell you where that all came from. It came from this book that we wrote about an experiment we were doing in 2015 at tower paddleboards. We moved the whole company to a 5 hour workday. 8 a.m. to one p.m. straight through no lunch. And when I rolled it out, we did like a three month test in this. And I said, okay, I'm going to give you your life back. But if you can't figure out how to be as productive or more productive than you were before, you know, walking out the door at one p.m., you're going to be fired. So I put pressure on people, but then I gave them their life back. And all of a sudden, you have this lifestyle where you're workday is better than most people's vacation week. I mean, most people don't even get out of bed until noon on vacation, right? Well, you're off work. You got the weekend still. And we did it for three months. And it honestly works so well that we continue to do it for about two years. And, you know, I had written some articles. I think in like Inc magazine or fast company over the years. And the first article I wrote about this little experiment that we were doing got like something like 10,000 social shares. I mean, it just resonated with people. I mean, everybody sort of realizes that being managed by the clock and working these 60 hour workdays in America was sort of a farce. We have all these we have nuclear power at our fingertips now with the Internet and all of these technology tools and all of these productivity tools. And if you use them correctly, you can work at ten times the speed. Right. Productivity in the U.S. between 1971 and 2011 was up 80%. And a lot of people are like, oh boy, you know, productivity is up. You know, I look at that number and I say, that is insane, right? Like it should be up a 1000% or you're doing something completely completely wrong here. So, you know, when we wrote that book, we really wrote the book just because those articles did well and we said, hey, this resonates with our brand or a stand up paddleboard company. We're work hard play hard, you know, knock off, go surfing. And we said we weren't really living our brand. So we started to live our brand with 5 hour work day. And then we wrote the book because we're going to put that in every paddleboard packets that we send out. To basically, because it dovetails perfectly with our brand. Then people would maybe pass that on to their friends and say, hey, here's just cool company out in San Diego that's doing this crazy experiment with the workday. We think it's cool experiment. So that was the idea, but when we actually launched the book, it went viral, and it went viral around the world. We did. It probably more than a hundred interviews. You know, 5 or 6 national interviews in the U.S. on TV. And then internationally, it took hold in different parts. A lot of places in Europe really just sort of love this idea both those quotes about the best boss were from a European perspective. Because in the U.S. it was a British newspaper, one was an American. One was a German newspaper. But an American newspaper might say, you lazy Boston. Exactly. The press we were getting in America was so funny. It was so different from culture to culture. In the U.S., the press I was getting was very hardcore conservative press that brought me in and tried to say this socialist is this is a joke. He's going to fail. And I would have to spin it on air and get them. By the end of the interview, a lot of them were like, yeah, well, that actually kind of makes some sense, you know? But in Europe, they kind of loved it right off the bat. And especially like France, they loved it. My friends would joke with me. And said, of course, they like that, you know, socialistic, you know, nonsense, right? And I said, yeah, that's interesting. But you know who really loves it is Germany. And Germany loves it because Germany prides themselves on being efficient. They're a much smaller population than the U.S., but they're like, I don't know, the fourth or 5th biggest economy in the world. So they're very efficient with what they what they do, right?.

I'll talk to you about it later, but the but one it looks awkward like it be. It just would not fit anywhere and two it would take. You watch this thing in flight. It would take you forever to get anywhere to get because it's like it looks like like Double Hindenburg. Well, because, you know It's not 1938.

It's just kind of weird because it's like you've got Virgin Atlantic Virgin Atlantic that's doing what they're doing, and obviously SpaceX and everybody else and then along comes this little.

"I mean, I think there's tremendous anger in this state from a from a significant percentage of voters in this state that we're desperate to have a charismatic voice. To fight back. There's real anger in this state not only over Covid restrictions, but also issues like homelessness and PDD fraud and corruption in Sacramento, and their people were desperate to get behind one person who could articulate those issues in a effective and interesting way. And Larry Elder is a master communicator. He's a very interesting person to talk to, and I think he represented well, the anger that a lot of people feel if he ends up coming up short, he ends up coming up short because of a numbers game of just not enough people in that camp. But he certainly has gotten people fired up in a way that President Trump got people fired up around the country, and that's certainly Kevin Faulkner and other more moderate Republicans have not been able to do. Now. What's that got to remind you? I have no idea what's going to happen tomorrow and talk to you tomorrow On Election night, 2016. I was at 30 Rock, NBC on set with Chuck Todd and Tom Broken, Lester Holt and Savannah Guthrie. And James Carville and everybody thought that Kelly Conway and basically Kellyanne Conway basically conceded before it was over. Everybody thought it was in the bag for Hillary Clinton. Everybody thought there was no way Donald Trump could win. And then, in the space of five hours, the world turned upside down. Is there a chance that happens tonight? In California People get out and vote this morning for Larry Elder. There is a chance, which is why people should go vote with different now, then different about that race, and many of those states is millions and millions of ballots are already in. And we do have a feeling or not a feeling. We have the statistics that show the majority of ballots that have come in so far from Democrats, so the Democrats have built up a pretty significant lead. So there needs to be one of the most tremendous turnout operations in the history of politics today from conservatives and Democrats that are against Governor Newsom. To turn out in order to pull this off. People have to they have to vote. If they want to change in California, they have to get out there. But where are you spending the night?

Poker With Presence
Pros Versus Joes
"Thing. I've seen quite a bit of in live poker. Is this attitude. This idea that the pro players are just better overall as human beings than the wreck players. Because they're able to do this thing where they can hold their emotions in check at the table and not do things that they regret not let the game get away from them so that they can continue to play pretty solid poker and earn enough money to make a living and what i've heard a lot of or seen a lot of. Is this kind of snickering behind the backs of recreational players. Where the pros adopt this attitude of arm so much better than him because look at him. He can't even lose two pots without going until oh look at that. He lost that one hand in then the next and he just gave it away. I would never do that. And so what i want to say about. That is those exact same people who are kind of talking shit about the wreck player businessman behind his back this exact same player quite often in order to hold their game in check in order to not do terrible things in terms of their poker player they end up having to go home and smoke bunch of we'd drink a bunch of beer or park themselves in front of the television for five hours just so that they can kinda let the steam off from all the emotions in the poker game that they were some -verting so they're not feeling their feelings in the game. They're not really letting that flow with presence and connection as a result. Everything's kind of blocked up and they're feeling quite tense quite miserable during the actual poker session. Because there's a lot of things that are going on in the game and it can be quite stressful and produce a lot of anxiety but instead of feeling those feelings and processing them as they come with they do instead is box it all away. Put it away to deal with later. I'm not going to deal with this now. I'm just going to do my job. I'm going to hold it in. And when i go home. I'm gonna release all that stress. I'm gonna do that thing. That's how they're going to deal with those emotions and so the funny thing is that this is literally the exact same behavior. Because if you're talking about the businessman or the person with the nine to five who holds it all in at work so that they don't yell at their boss so that their job performance doesn't suffer so that they can keep collecting their paycheck and supporting themselves in their family. Where does that person go to blow off steam to move the emotions through to deal with them. They go to the poker room and then they go and play bunch of hands that they should they get too aggressive. They call off too much money when they shouldn't as soon as anything happens at the poker table. That's not in their favor right. And so what they're doing is blowing off there and so there is actually the office for the pro and so the pros doing the exact same thing just in different places in so they're the pro is holding it together so that they don't blow their living so that they can continue earning money so that they can be respect. What work and not screw up their financial situation and then they take it home where they do the exact same behaviors just in a different thing. The context is exactly the same. The actual thing that they're doing the blow of this team is different. And so if you want a different way to go about it what i can offer you this idea that the more that you can be open to feeling your feelings as they come no matter what you're doing no matter who you're with you'll actually find that it's actually not going to be detrimental to performance in fact the more that you can get friendly with your feelings as they come have them be no big deal. The more that you can actually create presence and flow and move that energy ability to channel into higher performance than you've ever channeled into before with all of that energy of emotions comes the ability to use it to perform at your highest levels but most people want box it up. Put it away for later and then smoke away. Drink it away gamble it away do

Are Internships Worth It?
"Wanna talk about a question that we received on instagram from one of our listeners. They were given an opportunity to do an internship out an organization and it's an organization that they would have loved to actually work for but it wasn't a paid internship was unpaid internship. And they asked about whether or not that would be kind of devaluing themselves to to take that or or whether the the other things that come along with it that kind of do. They outweigh the pay. So first of all have you. Have you worked at engine ship first of all in your life and have you ever had to do anything that you maybe you thought was like in spirit of a greater good but you didn't know whether it was worth. It is a little bit of an interesting concept especially based upon like what is the internship. What's the company. what are you doing for you. Know what is your. What is your intent with the work itself in for a lot of times. The internship really just about gaining experience or building network. Like that's really what it comes down to Especially when it's not paid you know like you're really just trying to get around potentially people or places that you really want to know to be around long term and potentially get a real job in in work for the organization as far as doing extra work and You know doing things kind of beyond a day job absolutely. I i kind of subscribed to that in general that kind of ideas. That if you are if you're lifelong learner if you're motivated by self developments If you're listening to this podcast now guess what that. That's kind of a sign that you are one of those You're probably always looking for little bits and pieces of things If it's a job it's a little bit more of a responsibility or project or something that you can get involved in if it's not at the job and something else that you do on the side so i believe always in finding ways to add value fighting ways to learn things or gain experience Through opportunities present themselves but again. Like that's kind of what i subscribe to and i've also met a lot of people that don't subscribe to that that are just like hey i have a job. I get paid from this time to that time. I do exactly what's outlined in my job description and if the estimate is for me to get this work done in six hours i turn it in at five hours fifty. Nine minutes Because that's what's expected of me. And i moved forward and they just look at you know a job as a job and so you know i i can see both sides of it but i think specific to the to the The internship thing. I think is a lot to talk about their In regards to just that idea of how much are you willing to put an effort into something without either it being your job or without getting paid for

Millet Can Work Magic on Diabetes
"Today. We look at the best way to control diabetes. Starting with a remarkable results of crossover study randomized hundreds of people with diabetes to one and a third cup of millet every day. How does millet come to the help of diabetics a substantial portion of the starch in millet is resistant starch meaning resistant to digestion are small intestine so providing a bounty for the good bugs in our colon all way more than more common grains like rice or wheat but pro-seoul and kodo millet lead the pack. What's going on the protein matrix in millet not only access a physical barrier but actually also partially sequester. Is your starch munching enzyme. In the milit- polyphenyls can also act as starch blockers. In and of themselves mill also has remarkably slower stomach emptying times than other starchy foods. If you know white rice boiled potatoes or pasta your stomach takes about an hour digestive before starting to slowly dump it into your intestines in two or three hours to empty about half way whereas you eat sorghum or millet and stomach emptying doesn't even start until two or three hours. I may take five hours to empty even half way note. This was for both thick millet. Porridge or just like millet couscous. So since the non viscous millet couscous meal was also equally slowing emptying. this suggests. There may just be something about millet itself that helps slow stomach emptying which should blunt the blood sugar spike bud. You don't know until you put it to the

Well, you know, everyone needs to know everyone else's secrets because people are so nosy and too juicy pieces of information. Yes, Apparently the average adult has at least two things that they don't tell anyone else about. They don't tell their spouse they don't tell their best friend. You and I talked about this earlier this morning, and I've thought about a couple of times since there because It made me realize this is the reason that you and I get along very well. Because we work together. We sit locked in this little room together. We're not really locked in, but you know for like, five hours a day. And, uh, it's actually more time than I spend with my wife at the time she gets home from work. I have to. I know I see you more than probably any person on the planet. Yeah, but here's the thing After 9.5 years, there's still an awful lot. I don't know about you and I have really no No. No interest in knowing I wasn't going to say no interest, but I don't care about your secrets. I have no, I no. No interest in that at all. It's none of my business actually have shared some embarrassing moments. Well, we have with each other because they're funny, right? And we feel comfortable enough with each other that we can do that. Yeah. But I guess this is talking about you know, spouses well and best friend and and significant others. Probably. You know, I don't really share secrets with best friends. Security. Keep from your kids. Maybe I'm not one to, you know, do that. I'm very I mean, because because we're public because we're on the radio and stuff like that. But yet I'm still very private. If that makes sense, Yeah. Emotionally. I just think about like You probably think Caroline and I've been married for 33 years and I'm still learning things about her. I still learned things about her past. I'm still learning what food she likes and doesn't like and now really People are different. So you're probably wondering what the top 25 secrets are that people keep from their family and friends. Stand by will tell you they're pretty boring, but go ahead. No mental health issues. Lot of people don't want to be forthcoming about that kind of thing, because it's been so taboo in the past stigmatized and also it's my guess It's just Embarrassing. Embarrassing incidents is another thing on the list, although that's the that's the kind of story that you and I tend to. I told you to embarrassing stories which like can and one of them was absolutely harder, funny to repeat that one on the air. Sorry, boys and girls. Internet history. What does that even mean? Like what you search for on the Internet. Like you searching for things. You shouldn't be searched. Okay, I guess. Okay. You're eating and snacking habits. Okay. I don't know why you would care about my eating and snacking habit. I just had We just had doughnuts, hygiene habits. Oh, like If someone only showers once a week. Are they embarrassed by that? Or if I can't smell you? I couldn't care less. I smell your feet. Would you stop already? That has been months since you complained about my shoes, not the number of past sex partners have no interest in that whatsoever, Bank and credit card statements. This is a big one among married couples. They don't They have, like a secret stash her secret bank account or like you. Why? Why are you laughing? Do you have a secret staff Know Caroline's got money that achieved? I ask you. How much have you got socked away? She says you don't need to know she just to no basis in Yeah, exactly exactly. I subscribe to what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine. Yeah. Works both ways. You're married for a long time faking an illness in the past to avoid a commitment, like what do you mean? If you don't want to go do something Many of us don't do that, of course. Do that affairs and Infidelities. Alright, There's something that they're, Yeah, Most people are going to keep that a secret. A secret one night stands at sort of the same. Well, that's just a matter of embarrassment. Doesn't smoking habits are a lot of people who smoke in secret? They don't want their supposed to know. Faking an illness to avoid work. Well, you know, you're lying. Of course, you keep that a secret fears and phobias. Money spent on food times been at the bar.

Fifteen minutes later to check on her. She was gone as for why he didn't immediately call the police. He said he had started walking around looking for her and that his wife was still sleeping officer. Savage was concerned to say the least a little bit of panic. A little bit of concern. all ran through my mind officers did a walk through of the home during the search of the house. He followed me around the house. Instead of leading me through house which you would expect. That was your house. So i was i looking at the video now. It looks like i'm frantically looking through the house and and he's just kind of following me around your the ones frantic and what is the defendant's very very calm and have no showing no remorse concern for his daughter.

"Is about a five hour drive from Kampala. And his cows were grazing in the distance on, you know, he came in making jokes. He was carrying a travel mug and wearing his Signature broad brimmed hat and we sat under this big tree to talk, I guess before we dive in, Can you tell us a little bit more about him? Yes. So he helped topple to dictators in the seventies and eighties, but now he has been in power since 1986. Uganda has changed the Constitution twice to allow him to stay in power, and he is now running for a six term in office. Election is on Thursday. So I started with a pretty simple question. What is it that you haven't accomplished in 35 years that you plan to accomplish this time around? And as move 70 is bound to do. He gave me a history lesson in colonialism, And he said that he wants to work to bend the arc of history on the continent. Including to change what he said was a culture of not working hard now with this huge continent. With a small population. Has good. Mentality for its people. They don't have to work hard. No. This had been a struggle, which These know it all. From outside, Don't know. Because in other parts of the world People are pressured to work. Either by the environment. Which is horse type. Mm. By competition between man and man, But here Fool's gonna survive. Don't tell that really harsh thing to say about you just recorded to record that is really harsh, so he didn't talk about a five point plan about issues like building roads or improving schools. No. I think he was insulted by the question because he said that it implied that he should leave office after 35 years. He says that he's trying to accomplish historical things, and he looked to George Washington as a model. The Americans are the most powerful country. In the history of man. I want to do. What Washington did work for the economic and, in some cases, even political integration of Africa. So using the United States is an example. You and here I told President Noh 70 that George Washington gave up power after eight years to make a point that the American presidency was not a lifetime appointment, and 70 argued that Washington could leave because the American electorate and its economic system was more sophisticated when the Social Day election Over society. Is already set. It would have been run it. The problem is that, you know, kiss the direction is not set. So it's very risky, very risky age actually showed the lack of seriousness off those who took the way we're talking That you you just go. Just go. People don't know whether the world North or South And you see you just to go. Yes, if before already clear that the direction in the north And everybody is no longer There's no more argument about that. Then anybody can candidate. I can see it now. You know the way Let me go. But your people are smart in there. Entrepreneur Ng and I mean, to be totally honest here. I think what you're saying sounds really condescending toward your It's not understanding. It is a struggle to change society, which we know well. Which, of course you don't know very well. Hmm. So transition is risky, he's saying but later what does his record after 35 years actually show Look, there's no denying that most 70 has brought peace to Uganda. There's a saying in the rural parts that suffered tremendously under the terror of the L. A raise Joseph Kony that at least they can sleep But look, Uganda It's still deeply poor and corruption is endemic. And I asked him specifically about his foreign minister. A few years ago, the FBI found that he took a $500,000 bribe from a Chinese businessman. You know, after they looked through some emails of hiss yet Sam Kutesa is still one of president was seven. His most trusted men. What do you tell Ugandans who see this pass by and you don't fire your foreign minister? That one is is terrible. I have not read it. But what? I will read it and I am real. The despised And Condemn in order policy. It's I'm happy to send you. The indictment, which has the email in it pretty is that you can reuse do But look, The truth is he has had years to read this, so he must have known about this. Okay Elections, as we've mentioned are on Thursday. Is he campaigning? He is He's everywhere in Uganda, but he did still take the time to drive me around his farm to show me his cows. Mm hmm. These and these cows are his prized possessions and.
