JPMorgan's Bitcoin Journey
"What's going on guys. It is monday april twenty six and today we're talking about j. p. morgan's bitcoin journey from worse than tulips to not my cup of tea to a new client product first. Let's do the brief. I on the brief today. Sports in crypto are definitely coming together in this cycle a couple of years ago. Nfl offensive tackle russell. Kun made a now famous declaration.

Are You Underweight Chinese Stocks? Pros and Cons of Investing in China
"Are you under weight chinese stocks. Should you be. I recently got an email from a member of money for the rest of us. Plus he lives in switzerland but grew up in asia. He mentioned that he has been a long term investor in china as he analyzed his chinese equity investments in two thousand twenty. He noticed that they didn't fall. As much as stocks in other countries and the currency held its value relative to the us dollar. He went to look at his overall exposure to chinese trying to calibrate it within his per folio he noticed that relative to the size of the chinese economy which is the second largest in the world that he was underweight chinese stocks in fact the major stock indices. Msci all country world index has five point two percent in china yet. China's gross domestic product the monetary value of their output is over sixteen percent of global. Gdp trying to figure out. Well what should his weight be. He's primarily getting his performance through an a-share etf china a-shares our stock shares that trade on mainland china and trade in the local chinese currency the lon new trade on the shanghai stock exchange and the shenzhen stock exchange historically these chinese a-shares are only available to domestic investors but since two thousand three china has allowed certain institutional investors to acquire license to be able to purchase some of these chinese a share stocks for example back in two thousand fifteen vanguard. Was i allowed to buy these chinese a-shares stocks up to one point five billion dollars. It was at that time. They added chinese. A shares to their emerging market stocks index fund and etf trading nature's has typically been dominated by local chinese investors and returns have been volatile in twenty twenty though they gained forty one percent incredible performance. It was the result of the chinese economy performing better than any developed or developing economy in the world in two thousand twenty in this episode. We're going to look at. What should our weight be in china in our stock portfolio. There's definitely some pros and cons to investing in china and that's what this member was trying to figure out what what what should his weight be in. China been twenty twenty. The chinese economy officially grew two point three percent some of its weakest annual rate of growth. But the best in the world. now there's always some controversy regarding how accurate are the official economic statistics in china. I subscribe to capital economics which produces something called the china activity proxy and it's an estimate of economic growth using different metrics that they have much more confidence in and they show that the economy grew close to seven percent in the fourth quarter from four point nine percent in the third quarter. This is on a basis chinese. gdp it's gross domestic product the measure of what it produces its output of goods and services has been growing faster than many areas around the world for over a decade and as a result. The chinese economy is getting to be a larger percentage of overall global gdp in china. And this is data from. Moody's referenced an article in the wall street journal. China in two thousand ten made up ten percent of world. Gdp us in two thousand. Ten was twenty three point two percent of global. Gdp at the end of two thousand twenty. China had grown to sixteen point eight percent of global gdp while the us has shrunk to twenty two point two percent so china at its six percentage points. The us lost one percent. As i mentioned the chinese economy grew in twenty twenty and one reason it grew was because of americans that were stuck in their homes. And we're able to travel and go out to eat. And instead bought goods off. Amazon and other stores and as a result exports from china surged in november chinese exports grew twenty one point one percent compared to the prior month and exports to the. Us grew forty six percent. Despite all the trade war rhetoric new tariffs individuals. Continue to purchase things that were made in china and many. Us companies continue to make a lot of their things in china. That growth in exports certainly helped the chinese economy. The other thing that helped the chinese economy cover is day to day. Life has generally returned to normal. The country was able to better control the coronavirus and as a result people are back driving their cars. They're taking public transportation china's not kobe. Free this past week on one day the recorded two hundred and ten new covert cases the highest since march but only two hundred and ten compared to the thousands and thousands of new covid cases confirmed each day in the us. The chinese economy has rebounded because all that manufacturing of those exports has allowed migrant workers which make up about a third of the workforce to take their jobs again. So incomes are growing in china and they're also benefiting because during the early months of the pandemic the chinese increase the amount that they're saving chinese households. Increase your savings rate. Now there appear more willing to spend that savings on buying goods and services and that has helped propel the chinese economy forward.

"Because if you let your emotions take over and you say okay, were down 5%. I'm gonna I'm gonna add to my position that was down 10%. And you're gonna have a little bit more division. Then before you know what it's down to 20% you like. Oh, gosh, You can't go any lower than this. That's that's all traders self destruct, and that's an emotion is It is the worst thing that any trader can let them be taken over by So by simply having the heart stopped and saying, OK, you know what?

You have analyzed. Okay? This This approach is wrong because of such and such reason and then you look to regroup and try to prevent that mistake from occurring again. So so stops are very, very important. So obviously this strategy has risked a different kind of interest in this back market since inception. You know the portfolio is up 40% versus 23 for the S and P 500. So that's good. But you know, 220 again was a different story. You beat the S and P by little, but we got 20%. They got 18% and completely different ways. You know the buy and hold investor how to see their count, dropped 30, 35% or more and then wait and then hopefully not panic and bail out and then wait for it to come back and at the end of the year they want to getting back into positive territory. Whereas with your strategy, we were positive all year. We were never negative. I think, except maybe after February might have been a good like one or 2%. Right? And then the rest of the year we were in positive territory. So you never had to look at your counsel. Oh, I can't. I can't take this. It's down so much. No. In March when the market went down tremendously, Uh, this this portfolio went up, you know, because we actually doing some shorting and we were in cash. And so there was an opportunity to make money. Whether the market was going off. We're going down. Now the last few years in the last 12 years, I would say has been really, really good in the stock market. Okay? And if you're buying hold investor, you're probably doing just fine. However, if you look historically, this is why I think it's important to maybe have some allocations, tactical management and some other alternatives. If you look historically, the market tends have cycles, right. Has 10 12 good years than 10 12 Bad years, right if you recall to thousands From 3010. The market really was negative for 10. Years already mean and after that, then then it reverses and then we get to 2010 details 2021. It's been great. If we get another 10 or 11 years where the markets negative, right, Maybe it comes back to roost his debt that we're building that we're you know, maybe it just comes back to haunt us. And eventually, you know, whatever the Fed's doing doesn't work anymore, and we get a bad 10 years. Well, you're gonna want some other things besides the buy and hold. That's why we're talking to clients. But maybe you should allocate some of your money to a tactically managed portfolio that could go up whether the market's up or down, obviously as risk but different risk in the stock market. We compared to the S and P. 500. It's really nothing like the S and P 500. It's really not very correlated to the S and P 500, But that being said, you know, you have to compare it to something.

"Yes sir dra okay. All over the world spotted another one. Sorry wearies leash. She'll need gone. I have devoted much time to a class of plants that seem to have reversed the regular order of nature and like avengers of kingdom have turned upon animals incarcerating and finally killing them whether the plants are really hungry and entrapped the animals for food or whether it is only an example of the wanton destructiveness of nature. I leave the reader to judge. Mary treat eighteen eighty five throughout history. The gripe botanical artists have often been women but were many of them infect scientists to just without the endorsement of the botanical establishment which often shunned or ignored them. The paintbrush deemed more appropriate tool for a lady than a microscope. I guess botany has always been an interesting one. Because i suppose that the study of flowers and plants historically was maybe seen as a bit more of a suitable pursuit for the women feminine because of flowers and that sort of thing but still it still also quite mild eliminated.

There's a european species coatdress harare folio which he did a lot of his experiments on so he would put different things on the leaves like for example. He would put a piece of sand orbit of gloss and not really see any reaction. But if you put something like little piece of aig or some meat juices suddenly the plant would have reaction to that and the tentacles would start to wrap around. So what he basically showed is that these plants are reacting to substances that have not to general protein in them so so the plants i almost instantaneously they know not that'd be the descend concrete that Cheese like an eight that.

Thesis i go right back to dahlan's original studies and some of his original thoughts and ideas of things that with testing to this day and so he really liked the groundwork for the foundation. Full kind of verse plant research but one american woman was on the case of carnivorous plants. Around the same time as darwin. I will give you my observations on draw surra which seemed to have escaped the notice of botanists and she's struck up a correspondence with darwin in a series of letters from eighteen. Seventy one four years before he got to publishing his influential book on insect diverse plants. I had two or three species of these pretty plants growing for window ornaments and soon saw the deal on. The folio was a fly trap of considerable power when it comes to congress plants.

I want you to understand a couple of things here because when it does happen but when what used to be paid for you say with the consequence things it usually goes because you've broken your rules all because you've done something silly. Kobe won big. Try that you have a massive loss on. There's a number of things that can happen but one of those can be. You didn't follow your risk management if it's a series of trades again and it can be a lot of things some of these things are not negative. You know recently about a string of losing tries until just recently had a win again last night but the wins and losses. Usually they open your eyes to certain things if you're not doing the right thing for example if you have a series of losing trades how well does the full says you look at what you're doing now. Maybe doing nothing wrong at all so a consequence. Because you're doing the right thing. You're taking good trades your follow your rules and all is well in the world but losing string what could also do is it can really balk. You can send you backwards. It can make you question if you're doing what you should be doing. And if you're in the right path at all you gotta be ready for that. Not as a consequence of consequence of trading to be honest. You have a one way or the other when it comes to trades following the rules. That doesn't mean you're going to always have a lot of winning trades. I can tell you that right now. I've had recently a number of fantastic trades me out full speed to have a look at much writing and it's made me recognize that nothing wrong. It's fine so i cape plugging along last night with that prophet or at least the first target. Who haven't checked this morning. At least the first taga hit so it's really important to have that measure of self. The consequence comes off the periods. Where you break your rules and it's a reminder to stick to your guns it's it's not a bad thing because it what can do this again. The reason why would i take his. It's not just the trading strategy. It's not just a psychology but it's the capturing of beith in live screenshots when you take a tried to take a screenshot of that is because we have these periods where the consequences is you can go back and you can assess it and you can learn from it. I'm thinking like this. You've got two options one. You have a losing streak but decides to losing streak to making simple and you know everything spied change things and you don't have screenshots to back that up number two option is on the openings bad on losing losing losing limit. Shake my screen shots against my trading strategy checklists and see if i'm actually doing anything wrong at all. Okay will i am and it seems to be looking for. Try small candles in a cradle for example or the other side of that is these traits flawless. There's nothing wrong. It's just a losing streak. Okay co i can deal with it either way. You're equipped now to take positive steps forward to get your head back in their place and get your trading in their direction so you got to have these options in place you to have these screenshots. This accountability consequence comes. You know how to get out of it. I'm back into a positive mental monster.
"folio" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Folio Escape was the dominant method of regulating the motion of mechanical clocks for a couple of centuries. But then an Italian smarty pants by the name of Galileo, Galileo made an interesting observation. He discovered that a pendulum takes the same amount of time to complete one full swing out and back. Over and over and over again. The time for one complete cycle is what we call a period, so the period of a swing remains the same even as the pendulums swing decreases in amplitude. So what do I mean by that? Well, if we were working with a pendulum mounted on a massless rod or a line on had a frictionless pivot, then the pendulum is always going to return to the same height as its initial release. But that's not how the real world works. So let's say you tie a rope to the limb of a tree. And on the other end of the rope, you tie a bowling ball and you go on a stepladder, and you're far enough back so that the line is taut between the limb and the bowling ball. And you're standing at a certain level. You're holding the bowling ball right up to your chin with the that line there you let go of the bowling ball. And by the way, I say, let go. You don't push the bowling ball. Just let go now, If you do that is going to swing back and knock your teeth out. No, it won't. And the reason for that is because elements like friction and drag are sapping some of the energy from the overall system. The returning bowling ball doesn't have the same amount of energy that the departing bowling ball had. So it doesn't rise up as high as when you dropped it, Which means you get to keep your chompers. Congratulations. Go brush your teeth. But even though the bowling ball isn't rising up to the starting height of its release, the journey of its swing, its period will remain the same. That time remains the same. At least for small amplitude is the story is different if you're swinging that sucker really hard. Or for simple pendulums at small amplitude is this is true. The ball isn't traveling as far in each swing because it's losing energy to friction and drag, but it's also not swinging quite as quickly. Her swing, so it's not going as far but it's also moving a little more slowly and the overall amount of time it takes to complete one period remains constant. Now That means if you make a pendulum of a precise length, you can create a swing of one second. The period of a pendulum swing can be expressed as an equation, and the period is equal to two times pi times the square root of the length of the pendulum divided by gravity's acceleration. Now, ignoring for a moment, the gravity's acceleration is not uniform everywhere on Earth due to several factors that really are too complicated for us to get into here. We can simplify this. To say that a pendulum of 990 millimeters or about 39 inches is the right length tohave a swing period of a second. Galileo recognised the potential for pendulums and timekeeping, but he never built a clock using one That honor goes to a Dutch scientist named Christian Huygens, who in the mid 17th century figured it out. He used the oscillation of a pendulum to regulate the motions of clockwork. In many ways it was similar to the Virgin Folio design. Except instead of relying upon awaited lever and inertia. Hye Jin's design relied on the natural oscillation of a pendulum oven appropriate length. So how does a pendulum escape meant work? The escaped men still engages a gear, preventing it from rotating freely, And as the pendulum swings, it rocks the escape mint so that it disengages with the gear, and the gear begins to rotate at the end of the pendulums period when it returns to its starting point. The escaped man is locked back into position, and the whole process starts again. But I'm sure you're all wondering how the pendulum keeps moving. I mean, if it's losing energy with each swing How does it continue for more than just a few seconds without adding more energy to the pendulum? It's eventually just going to slow down and stop swinging completely. I mean, I talked about this with friction and drag well, Hye Jin's got around this by designing a gear. It would give the pendulum a little nudge. Each time the escape mint disengaged. So would provide just enough force to counter act Dragon fiction friction. So it worked. Huygens initial design was accurate enough to keep time within about a minute per day, meaning you'd only lose 60 seconds during a day long operation of one of his clocks, which was incredible for the time, and he improved upon his design within his own lifetime. He cut it down to losing on Ly 10 seconds per day, which is not bad for an entirely new method. Of regulating gear rotation. Pendulums do come with a couple of complications, however, so it doesn't matter what the mass of the pendulum is, By the way, you don't whatever the Bob is at the end of your pendulum. That mast can be anything that's immaterial. It's the length of the pendulum. That's that's important, not the bob the Master Bob, except that you don't want something so massive, that's going to cause damage to the clock itself. But that pendulums length is incredibly important. And this is where we get into some trouble because of temperatures. Most pendulums are made of metal and metal has a tendency to expand in the presence of heat or contract when it gets colder, and since the pendulums period is dependent in part upon its length. This poses a problem. Precisely designed pendulum might swing at exactly one second per period, but or have a period of one second is the more appropriate way of saying that, But if the length of that pendulum where to change, it would no longer be true. The period would be slightly off from a second, and that would be enough to cause errors and timekeeping. Clock makers recognize that issue and they tried to fix it in different ways. The most common way was. Do you use alloy Sze of medals for pendulums, So an alloy is a combination of two or more medals, And one of the interesting features of alloy is is that you can mix together metals that have different coefficients of expansion. So if you do this carefully enough, you can cancel out the effects of temperature to Ah, great deal. So, for example, you could use zinc and iron or brass and steel and pair them together in this way, and that ends up reducing that effect so that the clock can be more accurate, No matter what the temperature happens to be. For a pendulum clock. To be really accurate. You have to reduce the impact the impulse of the impulse of the turning crown wheel. The Crown wheel is the element that the escape mint locks into So you have to reduce the impact of its motion on the bench. Lem itself. It needs to give just the right impulse to keep the pendulum from swinging and no more or less than that, Ideally. It would be uniform every single time, meaning you have very precise distances between pegs on the crown so that its impact on the escape mint would remain consistent, no matter where it is in the Crown Wheels rotation. It was a guy named Edward Beckett, who later on would be lorded and we'd be known as Lord Grimm Thorpe, which is possibly the coolest title I've ever seen. He invented what was called the double, three legged gravity escape mint, which honestly sounds like a routine. You see, it's Cirque du Soleil. But in fact it was a particular arrangement that allowed for extremely consistent operation. He used it to build an enormous clock. Over at Westminster. The clock is world famous, and actually, people generally call it by the name of the huge bell that is also in that clock tower. And people just call the whole thing by the Bell's name that Bell's name, by the way is Big Ben. I would describe to you how his escape mint works, but I'm pretty sure my brain would melt as I tried to do this without the use of visual AIDS. Fortunately, there are videos about the double, three legged gravity escape mint on YouTube that show exactly how this works, and it is fascinating. I It really drives home. The fact that.
Proactive job strategies that work
"So good morning and welcome. Good morning how ya get to see you and So i mean as quick introduction and italian oil great lecture four volume about them to find a job in using sales sales method. What is the sales manager. Use it. Because i have the same background i really connected to your approach in them. I want to bring it to the world of how to network yourself and that more proactive approach ties also been successful as sales person for manager for science and now you're a startup called gay yelm you'll tell them more about it so no sorry go ahead. Yeah no welcome to the podcast. Go ahead while your thank you. So thank you for. The production. Name is time or no. I've been working in different. Different says and business development tools for the past seven years or so six seven is also a previous company. I was Walking as panther up in science. And we've been working on scientists fully and a heff lately joined. The averse will set up consists of seven people. It's called pm. A pam is spend management platform basically help companies Replace the old corporate bank credit cards with our platform where they can actually issue credit cards and men's joe expenses and spend according to different vendors or employs. So if you can if you want finger to configure to the subtle flake then you mattered for payments in saas companies for subscriptions and foreign player expenses. That aso in pm. Basically i says the rectal majoor obese now to build the entire department for the grand out on the ground up to lay down the infrastructure for the says flows for a set process to implement the tools and hopefully soon within the next few months. Also start hiring for my team. Great so we will be on alert for that for anyone who's looking for job as in sales is always interesting to be in a startup. You know you can really grow fast this quickly about that in so basically you're working on a large company is a science in how is it is not to move into stuff from more established corporate into startup. What is it. What were you looking for So say by the time. I size walking size since i thought about going inside of the company off from the business development all the way maybe even more than that but you know use a metaphor that is that is just sort of electrode. Say that life is what happens while you're busy making other plans right. So this the the indian founder. He is good friends of mine for now me and we started talking about possibly one day at john start up and everything just happened much faster than he anticipated and even did seem of walking in silence. Full folio to is more I wanted to just go ahead and jump right in and take. This opportunity was handed to me. So that's why. I basically chose to join. It wasn't like sort of like a plenty that they had in mind for a long time. I did hear about this company from other people as well. And i think the major change is that the company as big an structured assassins. You have the right set of tools to use. you have set of process. You're part of something. That's the second machine. Second machine people do calls the doing out linked animals. Everything is documented. There's a process. And all that. And when i joined the when you join like such a small startup like that there's there's just absolute chaos. Right you need to lay down the infrastructural in need to choose the tools you need to build up our the sales process and the deal flows and you need to start and understand. Basic metrics like pricing foil product for example. Like how long does one cell cycle take right. We shall metrics that you are having a company such science so these are some of the main differences and like my challenges coming in now says later in the company.
Dan Robinson, Research Partner at Paradigm.Xyz, on Starting at an Investment Fund
"Our research partner. Paradigm Fund. Tesla Blue, paradigm and and what it means to be received partner at a fun. Yes. So I was lucky because I was close friends with math long who was one of the CO founders of paradigm since childhood and Qian. Fred. Essentially design this role for with with with me and mine and served with my health I'm trying to figure out what would be most effective for me to do and when I most enjoy doing. So I really get a kick out of that although it may not be for everyone. So a lot of what I do is. Normal parts of the investment. Team function and that includes Projects that are starting to be successful diligence potential new investments valuing with the rest of the investment to make decisions. Another big part of the job is helping portfolio companies and there I think one thing, one way paradigm maybe different from other funds as we get pretty hands on helping out with things like mechanism design. And zones technical. Issues with with early out. So I was out there on the UNICEF did your white paper. Just I just recently published White Paper with another portfolio company yield on new am that they're using. And just generally helping folio and then the third area is this kind of independent research and that's where I think. As really appreciated, having having a place where they would welcome me doing that and that's publishing publish. Sort of you can call them favors by really sort of a sketches of ideas for things that people could build and so I came up with one of them called Rainbow about a year ago and then another. Just, under a year ago called yields which. Eventually turned into a project that we're incubating. That's implementing these these y tokens, and so that was a case where I think we weren't sure exactly how publishing these papers would help the firm but we thought you know one of the one possible outcome would be that we end up incubating a company based on what happens here. I find that very interesting in in did see that progression happened over the last year. It looked like you you put out the White Paper a few people. Read it someone came in. Thank you said suggested improvements even. That led to. Basically handing the project them, SACRA. That's right. So so Allen, who's the CEO of yield now? Came to me and I think he he fixed one of the core problems in the protocol which was settlement and he had he figured out a way to settle it essentially directly to die or directly to make faults as opposed to. Acetylene using using an auction or oracle or something that was one of the big missing pieces, and the other was just we wanted somebody who could really own it as a as a founder CEO. And we think Allen's that person another former lawyer. For some reason. Yeah I. Think I get along with them for that reason? Okay makes sense. Yeah. I. I think it's just the power of putting your ideas out there and actually seeing it a comeback improved in better and. Without providing. Opportunities for Reunion in the fund makes sense. Yeah. It's it's extremely rewarding although. Sometimes. When so there's there's another project at least one other project implementing the protocol. and. Sometimes I think like this. Why do I do I do this to myself but honestly, none of this would have happened without publishing the paper. I'm sorry I can't actually regret it that much.

It's interesting to me that if that photographer for whom he will working for had been more of sort of mentor encouraged more than he did you probably will stay there. Ride. From the business for But those kind of interesting because I think there are a lot of people are in that in that place where they toil the idea. But because of water for whatever reason they never they don't make the leap until you do what you think was should holding you back from going out and trying to do it yourself. So let's be really clear. I was employed as a photographer. So the reason I said I would have never lived was simply because I didn't want to run the business like I wanted to the photographer. I didn't even care about sale managing money or people or drama, or decisions or responsibility. I just took the photos inlet. And I got paid four hundred dollars a week to do that and I built my folio and I hit this incredible job. But as I started to tuned city four, hundred dollars a week was just not getting more and might go friends at the time ten thirty or bought houses and I could not buy a house with four hundred dollars a week and I. Remember, just thinking well is not a rune for me to grow in this through TC toffee studio. I am by nature just WanNa be I would have just stayed employed, but I needed to make money. So I thought thing self-employed was the only way to do that to keep a big imagine and have more control over the work that I was getting and. That just took a long time that. I'd love to learn and the confidence realm and yeah, that took a really long time but I would never have to i. just wanted to be a photographer in to this day even though I build massive business, I, still think I just WanNa be a photographer man. Still come up. Yeah, everyday. Everyday, I think about it. It's story was that you gave a half your business to a friend who helps you by sort of doing heavy lifting the eating want to do with respect to the business end. When when that relationship ended, you went to Australia and he started again and again struggling because you are not able to you know you weren't on, you're unable to sit herself marketer yourself and press. It wasn't the MAC thing of my stop. It was the direct receiving money I had a block around being able to receive money for my craft, and that's what a hint to get through food because I keep putting people in front of me that would do the deals for me. But whenever I touched, it would go to bed because I felt so low and my values. So I started to myself value that twin at changed. Everything changed for me just the ability to tell somebody what I was with without the fear of them thinking I wasn't good enough. So that was that was a big journey from a bit out on my own.

The carnivorous woman a saga from Charles Darwin to Wheatbelt Western Australia (Part 2)
"They gleason and CREPE and climb and snap end. They feed off flesh. Flies Matz any culinary delight by intrepid? Natasha Mitchell back in the world's hotspot for carnivorous plants or Western Australia last week. Show sit sane. Well today. It's a tile full of twists and tendrils. Yes Trust Sarah. I can all over the world. I just bought another one. Sorry wearies Navan. I have devoted much time to a class of plants that seemed to have reversed regular order of nature and like avengers of Kingdom have turned upon animals incarcerating and finally killing them whether the plants are really hungry and entrapped the animals for food or whether it is only an example of the wanton destructiveness of nature. I leave the Rita to judge. Mary treat eighteen eighty five throughout history. The great botanical artists have often been women but many of them infect scientists to just without the endorsement of the botanical establishment which often shunned or ignored them. The pint brush deemed more appropriate tool for lady than a microscope. I guess botany has always being an interesting one because I suppose that the study of flowers and plants historically was maybe seen in a bit more of a suitable for for women feminine because of flowers and that sort of thing but still it it was still also quite male dominated. I guess in terms of the scholars in that field throughout history. Well one determined woman on a farm in way belt Western. Australia defied the odds and changed the world sore. Australia's incredible carnivorous plants and listened to artists so with Laura Skates botanical scientists doing her PhD on canvas plants. Right now I am taking you down.

The Seven Roles of Photography
"Let's start today with an obvious given. We all have cameras. We all take pictures but the question I WANNA ask today is why and there's one simple answer that probably accounts for ninety nine percent of what we do photographic -ly we make pictures because it's fun and it's entertaining and we enjoy it and we don't need any more excuses than that and so the rest of this podcast can be forgotten except for the fact that some of us. WanNa do something more with our photography. The just have fun. Some of US WANNA do something more with our photography than just capture memories. That is to say we're interested in using photography something beyond the snapshot and when that happens now. I think it may be more interesting to ask why. What is the purpose of making our artwork? We'll part of the reason to be an artist. Is that things. Like photography gives us a way to approach the world almost an excuse to approach the world as I've said for years. A camera is a fantastic. Excuse for going out and exploring and people will give permission to go places and see things that you wouldn't have if he just said. I'm curious and I WANNA go see it but if you say I want to take picture of it. Sometimes that opens doors and so a camera can be a handy tool for us to use in life as an excuse to go out exploring okay fine but that still doesn't give us a reason why we wanNA create artwork from the photographs that we capture with our cameras. Why do we WANNA make prints in math and frame them and put them on the wall or publish them or make folios chat or whatever? What is it that motivates us? What is our purpose for creating artwork for reasons? I can't explain it other than the fact photography's my life. I find this a fascinating question and so I spent considerable time in the last no sixty days or so thinking about this more critically trying to figure out. What is the purpose for being an art photographer other than fun? And an excuse to explore the world essentially what I came up with. This is just my own little brainstorm so I'm not pretending like this inclusive or exhaustive of all possibilities. But here's what my brain thought that. There are basically seven roles of photography and by that I mean things that we do with photography not rules Phil The seven roles of photography that is to say there are seven purposes of fine art photography that I find help clarify my thinking about what it is that I'm doing once. I had sort of concluded this brainstorm I applied retrospectively and I discovered that it was pretty useful. Sometimes I could use these seven ideas to clarify a project that I wasn't quite sure what I was doing. And where it was going and what the next step was etc how to conclude it or even how to make final decisions about editing and sequencing but once I had these seven roles of photography in mind I found I could go back and use this to clarify my thinking so that was a reason to explore why we make our work. The other thing is it tells me what the limits of my thinking our because I have no doubt there are more than seven ideas. That should be on this list but for some reason. I can only think of seven roles of photography. I'll get into them in here. Just a second but I can only think of seven which tells me the limits of my thinking and as a matter of fact when I went back and looked at the well at this point I have a hundred thirty seven small projects that have been published in cocoa and all hundred and thirty seven of them fit with one of these seven definitions of the roles of photography and not a single one was outside of this. So that tells me I need to push the envelope a little bit. Because they're probably some things that I missing that I've become so entrenched in my thinking that I need to expand so with that in mind. Let me share with you. What I am characterizing. As the seven roles of photography these are things. We want our fine art photography to do the purpose for making what we make and why we make it. The first is to take me there that is to say camera as transporter through space and time the classic examples of this are probably ansel. Adams in contemporary photographer Art Wolf. I'll use him as an example and there are lots and lots of others but the essence of this kind of photography is for us as viewers to go someplace through space and time to a place that we have not been or cannot go and see the world through the eyes of the photographer no question. That's probably the dominant use of photography in terms of fine art photography or as far as that goes with snapshots snapshots take us back in time to an event that happened so that we can remember it more clearly the snapshots that we make vacation pictures can take us to a place that we're not currently at but maybe we visited on vacation and we want to remember it and reminisce about it and so take me. There is the first and most dominant role of photography and lots and lots of projects fit that
Twelve Reasons Why I Still Make Prints
"Last week. I released the most recent issue of cocoa personal. Pdf of my work. And I received a fascinating email which has sparked a discussion here. Let me read you. The e mail to begin with it says Brooks thanks for the latest issue of cocoa. I really like these. Pdf's but I was surprised in this one when you announce the printed chat books from cocoa as a photographer who's embraced digital imaging. The way you have I was wondering why you're still making prints. I think that's a valid question. I have embraced digital imaging and obviously the twenty seven now issues of cocoa that I've published and sent out into the world or an indication of my enthusiasm for digital distribution photography and to be quite honest if I never made another print. It's not like my photography would not get out into the world because I get far more distribution of my artwork via these. Pdf's than I would ever get. If I only made prints as my finished form of artwork I've always made prince of one kind or another. I've always been involved in printed photography and probably will be for the rest of my life but if for some reason it suddenly became whatever against the law to make photographic prints. It's not like I wouldn't have an outlet for my photography so there must be another reason why I make Prince and in fact I sat down fairly quickly in response to this fellow and came up with twelve wins why I still make Prince. There's probably more but these are the ones that came off the top of my head. I is that it's my first love. I started photography is a print maker as matter of fact when I picked up photography seriously in the seventies if you didn't make print they're literally was no photograph. That was the only method to get a photograph out into the world. Well perhaps other than slides but not very many people were seriously using slides as a means of distributing their fine art photography and so prince was sort of the default. I built dark rooms as a matter of fact every place I ever lived in my twenties thirties. And even into my forties the primary consideration of choosing where I was going to live was based on. Could I build a darkroom there? That's how serious my commitment was to prance and basically Intel. Oh roughly about two thousand five or so. My photography was all about what I could do in Prince. So because it's my first love because of where. I am relative to when I was born in the history of photography and all of that my roots are so deeply involved in printing that I I'll never be able to give it up because I just I have so much fun which is actually my second thing that I wrote down. I just plain have fun making prints that didn't always used to be the case. I enjoyed the scientific challenge of the wet darkroom and because I had pursued science in my youth I was very comfortable around mixing my own chemistry and measuring things and all of that knows fascinated by it and that aspect of it was fun but I didn't find print making to be much fun. It was frustrating to me to have to guess how much to dodge and burn or whatever adjusting imprint. And then wait for ten minutes before I could turn the lights on and see it. That was always a bit tedious. But now with the introduction of digital printing. I have all kinds of fun. In printing to me is an entertainment activity. It's pretty consistent these days. It's not fraught with much Difficulty OR FRUSTRATION. And so seeing a really terrific print. Come out of my printer is mostly. Ajoy every once in a while. I get frustrated but it's mostly just a whole lot of fun. So that's the second reason I still make Prince. The third reason is the physicality of Prince. I enjoy digital images. I enjoyed the computer. Work as a publisher. I spend all day on the computer so I'm comfortable with it etc but there is something lovely about the physicality of print particularly these days when the inkjet papers are so wonderful because of the textures involved and the heavyweight involved in the the fiber in the paper is lovely I just love the physicality of printing hence my interest in doing for example folios as well as chat books. There's a physical process of cutting trimming sewing folding. All of that Kinda stuff. Not so much these days cutting matt boards like I used to but all of that physicality of print making is still something that I find very rewarding and a reason to be involved it sort of the hands on production. May maybe that should be my fourth. Reason is the hands on production aspects of making prints in particularly. You know you start off with a blank piece of paper and maybe a blank folio cover and thirty or forty five minutes later. You've got a beautiful folio with Prince and the Nice physicality of all I I. I just enjoy that process. As a real sense of accomplishment in the hands on production for both folios and chat books to some degree in matted prints although I don't do that much anymore the fifth reason is I just love paper. There is something about just the commodity of paper that has always appealed to me. I even experimented for a while in my youth with things like Origami just somehow having this beautiful invention of mankind Paper and what what a fabulous substance. It is in all kinds and it's not just photographic paper but art paper and paper that you write on and draw on a I love paper so that's another reason that I'm involved in printing which is tied. I suppose to my sixth reason for printing which is that. There's no device required to see a print or folio or a chat book. And the fact that you can handle the paper and you have that physicality of it and did it doesn't require that you own a piece of equipment or have a piece of equipment with the battery charge or uploaded to it or whatever. There's a certain appeal to that.
Special Guest Reveals Top 5 YouTube Traffic Secrets
"Jomar Folio Joe. How're you doing what's happening? Hey glad to be here for that. Awesome intro man. This is the first time we live interview on the show before which is which is really exciting. I love comic'll boards in the back. So dead man just waiting for the two club exit. Come in the mail to even out the set so it's GonNa be awesome. Joe One last Last week he said he got one which is pretty cool so all right so obviously. We don't have a ton of time but a lot of questions for you. So inside of the Traffic Secrets Book is a whole chapter on Youtube traffic. And most of it I pull from you because you are. The Guy who on our team is doing stuff and And you've done such an amazing job and so most of the things are are there from you and so This is kind of to teach people about what's happening inside the book but also just get them to know you and understanding Youtube. So why do you think different than all the other platforms? That are that are out there. You instagram facebook twitter. Take all of a sudden like why is youtube like why are you so passionate about you too? You know so. It like a facebook instagram. And see a of people like it's very It's sometimes easier for them to build a big following on facebook or instagram. The kind of go to youtube and they struggle a little bit. And it's because you to isn't just a social media platform. It is a social media platform. It's also a search engine where people are searching for certain certain topics searching how to do something but you also have to do with you too is not only put up content that engaging that people wanNA watch that has value but you also have to add kind of a story element to it in the one thing that you don't want to do and I see people do. This is kind of repurpose. Your content like say you have constantly putting up facebook and instagram. Our podcast in you like you distribute to all these different channels. If you put on Youtube a lot of times you're going to find. It's not going to get that much traction and think about youtube like this like when you watch you to be set like you guys are out there and you're watching. Youtube. Why do you subscribe to a certain channel? You're going to subscribe right. Maybe you'll they're showing you how to make money online or how to grow your right. But there's a ton of videos on there that talk about like how to go to your instagram channel. But it's like what makes you subscribe. WanNa Watch somebody. It's going to be their personalities can be the way the engaged with you and it's going to be the way the content comes across so what. I would say for Youtube. The differences is treat you to like. It's its own thing. Make videos just for you to try to approach it not as a marketer but as a creator not you're gonNA sell anything but that you're going to like build your audience and you following. Yeah one of my favorite things about Youtube is talked about in the book a little bit like every every social platform. I'd say facebook live like we're doing right now. It's happening and then like it'll drop. It'll be here for next couple of days. It'll drop down the news feed and eventually disappears. Nobody'll ever siegen whereas youtube is like the only platform where you create something and then it grows over time because not just social social and it search and that's why it's so it's it's different 'cause you create something if you create the right way then it sits there and to grow throughout time as opposed to everything else was seems to diminish over time and so it gives at least for me. Who's WHO's creating stuff. It gives me more incentive craigslist. It's nice because it lasts beyond the moment whereas facebook live. Is there for a moment? Then it's gone where youtube it can last for for forever. I mean like. We talked about earlier. Overcome Nagasaki Videos overcoming pornography addiction? Like they still get hundreds and hundreds of US every single month. We don't even sell the product anymore which is probably sad. Because you're an affiliate making money when I know that video. I think I think you're screech out when you were doing. The bucket has hundreds of clicks on their in what it does the content builds on each other. So you put the video video out three years ago in if you keep putting contin out. It's like you're gonNA keep getting lead you're going to keep getting people subscribing watching your stuff like you said yet just doesn't disappear is built on up into the question. This is off the questions that you sent me as pre questions. I'm excited about this one. I hope that's okay. I'm GonNa put you on the spot a little bit but I think a lot of times. People think youtube strategies like okay. I've got to make the most perfect video in the world. And you look at companies like dollarshaveclub drive for example Where they made this video goes crazy viral and then built the company up and then he sells to whoever sold for a billion dollars right. And so we're like okay. I've got to make the perfect youtube video and my people stress about and because they never actually make something at all versus like you told me book example talked about the strategy like Gillette or or other things like that we talked about that because that's a strategy that more people like me can actually do of not like going to make the perfect video instead. It's looking at it a little bit differently. We talked about how how how led to their strategy. How we can use that as well. Yeah so so. Here's thing when you guys are starting your Youtube Channel. Think of it like in the first thing you WanNa do is really go deep in unique whatever you're doing like so for example. Gillette what they did was. They didn't go out there and say well they did. They try to make a viral video like dollar shave club in a flat rate. So what they did was they said. Listen we want to dominate for the keyword? How to shave because people that watch how to shave videos by our product right to the shave your head how to save your back at a shave your legs right needed. All these videos that got hundreds thousands millions of US and they were very targeted to their subscribers. So the thing I would tell people is figure out what your knee. Shas figure out. What you're you're going to go after and go deep in that niche handle like the way you explained the whole blue ocean strategy and expert secrets Because you know the one thing you don't WanNa do is go and look at someone has a million subscribers and then follow what they do right so like say you're doing because you know they've already been established they already have a huge audience. Say you're doing Amazon. So you WANNA do is go through. Amazon. Say Okay. Make videos on Amazon Amazon. Fbi on Amazon drop shipping on Amazon affiliate and they go through hit every every time anything that would searching for Amazon. You WanNa make a video on and it doesn't have to be a perfect video like you said it just has to be engaging enough to get to get retention but doesn't have to be this high production video but we don't want to do is you don't WanNa make a video on Amazon video on how to make money online. Then make a video on procrastination and then they video on the current right you you want. You wanted to. If you're just starting like you want to create like this this is traffic lean. That Youtube knows okay. When Joe put the video out it's going to be on Amazon and then the then they'll start showing your video for more to more and more people that search like the Amazon stuff and then you could expand out there

The Rise of Portuguese Gastronomy in Britain
"Opening of the Hawaiian Bar Restaurant Bar Dole rowing London. Three years ago was a milestone for Portuguese greasy and in the British capital both critics and the public loves to the place and also Monaco showed its approval by including Doro in our fifty best restaurants list now. The success story continues us the founder Max Graham and his team prepared to open their second and location. This timing London cece waterbed as I'm then to look back at the past three years to talk about the new location and the revival of Portuguese. Food Food in Brayson Max. Graham joins me here Madari House Studio One Abbey early. I actually opened a pop restaurant back in two thousand fourteen in in Greek street. I was walking my family business. which is Churchill's put company that makes wine imports in the valley? So the d'oro has always been very much in my blood in my upbringing childhoods but really walking for Churchill's when I opened the pool house which was really focused. It was more of a marketing stunt than anything else that was a pup restaurants pop up wind pool bar and we showcase folio of wines and ports in some very very simple produce driven sharing boards and yet during that period. I think I started eating out in London particularly in the Soho area and I just realized that Portuguese foods was very badly represented. I mean a lots of Portuguese restaurants in Stockwell and I absolutely love those restaurants but there are different Soda Portuguese restaurant and you know I was really at the time. I'm loving bar. Fina unloving Morita on these concepts. That were really showcasing. Spanish cuisine in such a contemporary outwards. Outwards way I'm really engaging with Londoners. I'm getting them excited about gastronomy from abroad and I just felt. Portugal wasn't doing that in in London at the time. So you decided to fix that. Yeah I mean I. I started the process of putting together. Ideas Footballer on that culminated in the the opening in two thousand sixteen in between then others opened up some Portuguese restaurants. Nunu Open Tabatha and you know a few years ago. It was great that was about three three of US laundry. No Tobacco really pushing Portuguese food and of course like I said. There's lots of restaurants in stockwell London that really lead. You backed Portugal Assad way which is a sort of nostalgic way. I think it's interesting that you mentioned that before. You launched Bhadra you. You felt that Portuguese food wasn't particularly well represented in London for example. What do you think that was? I don't know maybe London wasn't ready when I was much younger. That was a restaurant on the Kings road called Tuba. It was a Portuguese restaurant. And you know they were showcasing Portuguese food and I don't think think it just didn't engage with London's at the time you know this was about fifteen years ago and I just think potentially Londoners the appetites it's for new experiences. New Cuisines has just snowballed and London just hungry for new concepts particularly when they're showcasing acing cuisines that are less represented. I think that comes in tandem with the fact that Portugal has just been having such a surge in tourism such exposure over the last five years. I mean Portugal. Now the past five years it's just a completely different country. I mean when I grew up importer. It's just so far away from what it is. Today I think in Portugal there is such a wealth of culinary Marie on wine tradition. And I think that these experiences already being heightened and I just think London it is now more than ever probably quite excited to engage with Puccio before we talk about your second restaurants. You're about to launch. Let's still talk about well. Well the first module has been like how strong of a vision. Did you have in regards to the menu as you mentioned you. Spent your childhood impose import. So did you have very strong. Opinions on wall belongs to the menu. And what doesn't so. We actually run a pop up in Puto for the summer for two months with my head chef at the time and we really use thoughts time to brainstorm ideas to travel around you you know. I'm I grew up in the north of Portugal so I'm very familiar with the northern cuisine. But what's so special about Portugal. I'm what's been so special about. The last three is building Baltar is really engaging and learning about those other regions which also rich in culinary and gastronomy but yeah at the time that would favorites from childhood's that were also dishes that we thought had identity which was very reimposed since a lot of the Times a small plates Portuguese concept. You know that's not really traditional. You have petit scores which are sort of small plates. It's butts traditionally wouldn't eat like that in Portugal. It's more about largest sharing dishes and so so you know I was conscious that I didn't want it to just mimic another Spanish tapas restaurant. I really wanted those decisions. And those menu items to speak the identity of Portugal's Strana me which is very much Atlantic driven and you've done a good job. Let's remember that was just a couple of years ago when we ranked as one of the world's what's best restaurants here US monocle very very generous and wonderful knowledge. You're very welcome now. You're opening your your second restaurant in the city. How much could you tell us about that? How different or how simulates the second body raccoons be compared to the first one so I think at London Bridge we? He was slightly limited in a way. By what we wanted to keep the menu short to the point we rotated every every season. There are some dishes that just don't move because they become so popular. That can actually sometimes be quite limiting when you wanting to show off a another hundred dishes that you've come across crossing excited about. I think that's really what the policier in Hof has been. What's been great about that is that we have just really been exploring? During Portugal's different regions different Tad was different recipes. Different Cultures and I think that our menu in the city just gives us a really great opportunity to scratch a little bit deeper about what Portuguese food is. What are those star dishes? By the way that are very much in demand. People may find from both restaurants. Well I think the Buccleuch Bras is one that has been a bit of a heritage buckle. Er Brash is shoestring potatoes very very thin chips which is gently scrambled with eggs and the so-called which we rehydrate for forty eight hours Solved with some olives lovely dish it should be very creamy and it's it's a real comfort food dish and I hope that that will be something that people enjoy in the city as much as they have done in London Bridge. But we're also taking some really exciting new dishes working on this lovely ill dish from the IRA Rawda which will be Friday deals with a Byron source which is really traditionally used on suckling pig. So it's a a white pepper black pepper golic source but it's great on the Friday deals as well how much you still have to be discovered from Portugal. Something the world hasn't quite goes familiar with yet. Every time I go home I think the world has discovered it even more so than the last time. It's just every time there's more people. It's a great points at the alignment with this buzzer tourism but also the locals really embracing the tourism. I think as more and more people go to Portugal. It also drives the experimentation of the chefs impeachable. So there's a wealth of traditional food as a starting point. You've got this book which is all a Bible. Maria alluded Vest who literally has written down all of Portugal's star dishes but then you've also got this generation of chefs Jeffs that went away from Portugal. Who have started coming back on bringing with them? A huge amounts of technical expertise on the taking these very traditional recipes on expanding Portuguese food is expanding those boundaries and considering how reached the Portuguese culinary culture. Do you think there are many dishes and many ingredients. The world has been discovered yet. Something you struggled to find from outside of Portugal I think Portuguese food is obviously hugely driven by the Atlantic. One thing that is very very hard to compete with even though we're in Ireland is the rich miss of produce on fish that you got on the coast of Portugal. You got wonderful. CARBONARA is down in the all. Gov You get incredible perception. which is a goose? Bonna cool on the north coast particularly something like Incredibly Hard Oughta find elsewhere. Something I'd love to put on our menu but it's just one of these ingredients. That's better left for Portugal and better enjoyed when you go visit. I mean there's a lot of dishes that we thought about putting on which would definitely challenge. I think people's perceptions but I mean you've could be the which is made with chicken's blood and you know and there's a lot of tripe and offal dishes in the north of Portugal which I think maybe will hold off from on the next restaurant where probably gonNA play a little bit more safe than that but maybe As a special once in a while maybe one day as we mentioned already. You're just about to open. Open your sick and restaurants in the city. What about after that? Do you have any longer term plans. Walt may happen after that. Yeah I mean. We now imports about fifty percents of all winus. Direct from Boutique produces in Portugal. One thing I've really liked to develop more of a wine shop Pango and also we bring in a lot of cheeses and shall coutries would love to develop a mercer which is a deadly concept. I mean the sky's the limit. You've got punch bakeries. which would be great to get involved in but Baldur in its core concept I think I think it definitely has potential insult to grow to one team or sites off to this Max Graham Phone Giraffe Bar Douro and the new restaurant in London's broad gate opens later eighty two this month

"New so the Virgin folio statement was the dominant method of regulating the motion mechanical clocks for a couple of centuries but then an Italian Smarty pants by the name of Galileo Galilei made an interesting observation he discovered that a pendulum takes the same amount of time to complete one full swing out and back over and over and over again the time for one complete cycle is what we call a period so the period of the swing remains the same even as the pendulum's swing decreases in amplitude so what do I mean by that well if we were working with the pendulum mounted on a master list rod or a line and had a frictionless pivot then the pendulum is always going to return to the same height as its initial release but that's not how the real world works so let's say you tie a rope to the limb of a tree and on the other end of the rope you tie a bowling ball and you get on a stepladder and you're far enough back so that the deadline is taught between the lamb and the bowling ball and your whole standing at a certain level you're holding the bowling ball right up to your chin with the that line there you let go of the bowling ball and by the way I say let go you don't push the bowling ball but you just let go now if you do that is it going to swing back and knock your teeth out now it won't and the reason for that is because elements like friction and drag are sapping some of the energy from the overall system the returning bowling ball doesn't have the same amount of energy that the departing bowling ball had so it doesn't rise up as high as when you dropped it which means you get to keep your choppers congradulations go brush your teeth but even though the bowling ball isn't rising up to the starting the height of its release the journey of its swing it's period will remain the same that Tyne remains the same at least for small amplitudes the story is different if your swing that sucker really hard but for simple pendulums at small amplitudes this is true the ball is in traveling as far and each swing because it's losing that energy to friction and drag but it's also not swinging quite as quickly her swing so it's not going as far but it's also moving a little more slowly and the overall amount of time it takes to complete one period remains constant that means if you make a pendulum over precise length you can create a swing of one second the period of a pendulum swing can be expressed as an equation and the period is equal to two times pi times the square root of the length of the pendulum divided by gravity's acceleration now ignoring for a moment the gravity's acceleration is not uniform everywhere on earth due to several factors that really are too complicated for us to get into here we can simplify this to say that a pendulum of nine hundred ninety millimeters or about thirty nine inches is the right length to have a swing period of a second I Galileo recognize the potential for pendulums untying keeping but he never built a clock using one that honor goes to a Dutch scientist named Christian Huygens who in the mid seventeenth century figured it out he used the oscillation of a pendulum to regulate the motions of clockwork in many ways it was similar to the virgin folio design except instead of relying upon a weighted lever and inertia Huygens design relied on the natural oscillation of a pendulum of an appropriate length so how does a pendulum escapement work this game and still engages the gear preventing it from rotating freely and as the pendulum swings it rocks the escapement so that it disengages with the gear and the gear begins to rotate at the end of the pendulum's period when it returns to its starting point the escapement is locked back into position and the whole process starts again I'm sure you're all wondering how the pendulum keeps moving I mean if it's losing energy with each swing how does it continue more for more than just a few seconds without adding more energy to the pendulum is conventionally just going to slow down and stop swinging completely I mean I talked about this with friction and drag will Huygens got around this by designing a gear that would give the pendulum a little nudge each time the escapement disengaged so it provides just enough force to counteract dragon fiction friction so it worked hi gives initial design was accurate enough to keep time within about a minute per day meeting it only lose sixty seconds during a day long operation of one of his clocks which was incredible for the time and he improved upon his design within his own lifetime he cut it down to losing only ten seconds per day which is not bad for an entirely new method of regulating gear rotation pendulums do come with a couple of complications however so it doesn't matter what the mass of the pendulum is by the way you don't whatever the Bob is at the end of your pendulum that mass can be anything it's that that's in material is the length of the pendulum that's my that's important not the Bob the mass of the Bob except that you don't want something so massive that's going to cause damage to the clock itself but that pendulums length is incredibly important and this is where we get into some trouble because of temperatures most pendulums are made of metal and metal has a tendency to expand in the presence of heat or contract when it gets colder and since the pendulum's period is dependent in part upon its length this poses a problem a precisely design pendulum might swing at exactly one second per period but or have a period of one second is more appropriate way of saying that but if the length of that pendulum were to change it would no longer be true the period would be slightly off from a second and that would be enough to cause errors in time keeping clock makers recognize that issue and they try to fix it in different ways the most common way what do you use alloys of metals for pendulum so an alloy is a combination of two or more metals and one of the interesting features of alloys is that you can mix together metals that have different coefficients of expansion so if you do this carefully enough you can cancel out the effects of temperature to a a great deal so for example you can use zinc and iron or brass and steel and pair them together in this way and that ends up reducing that affects so that the clock can be more accurate no matter what the temperature happens to be for visual clock to be really accurate you have to reduce the impact the impulse of the impulse of the turning crown wheel of the crown wheel is the element that the statement locks into so you have to reduce the impact of its mo ocean on the pendulum itself it needs to give us the right impulse to keep the pendulum from swinging and no more or less than that ideally it would be uniform every single time meaning you did a very precise distances between pegs on the ground so that its impact on the escapement would remain quick consistent no matter where it is in the crown wheels rotation there was a guy named Edward Beckett who later on would be lower did and would be known as lord Grimthorpe which is possibly the coolest title I've ever seen he invented what was called the double three legged gravity escapement which honestly sounds like a routine you'd see at cirque de soleil but in fact it was a particular arrangement that allowed for extremely consistent operation he used it to build an enormous clock over at Westminster but the clock is world famous and actually people generally call it by the name of the huge bell that is also in that clock tower and people just call the whole thing by the bells name that bells name by the way is Big Ben I would describe to you how his escapement works but I'm pretty sure my brain would melt as I tried to do this without the use of visual aids fortunately there are videos about the double three leg and gravity escapement on you too that show exactly how this works and it is fascinating I I I it really drives home the fact the engineers are remarkable people were wasted martyr than I am and I highly recommend you go and check these videos out to get an appreciation for the actual clockwork that makes the regulation possible and that pretty much wraps up this episode of tax stuff but there's a lot more to talk about with watches and clocks I'm sure in a future episode I'll tackle things like quartz watches which rely upon the peculiar peas electric qualities of chords and I'll talk about other types of time keeping things like atomic clocks in hell those work but for now I'm going to say it's time to conclude this episode and remind you the next time you look at the clock think about all the amazing work it took to make it all work out properly from physics to mathematics to engineering the craftsmanship o'clock represents lifetimes of genius so take some time to appreciate it if you guys have suggestions for something I should cover in a future

This affects re-live money managers, your financial planner your money manager, I would be very, very cautious if someone said, you know, what I've been looking at the performance of X Y Z fund, and I've got this other fun here. That's really well, look at the track record or the last one three five years, and you make that switch this, Johnny. When I was in the brokerage business, here's a young man. That young but in the mid nineteen eighties area. I will never ever forget that. I did that mistakenly. So with a doctor. Client. And I lost this die as a client because I went in he had XYZ option income fund or something like that. And I looked at the performance and I said, you know that option income fund, not looking so good. Why don't we switch it to ABC fund after it had already performed? And of course, he said, sure, whatever you say, and over the next couple of years the new fund underperform the old fund, and he was a pretty smart guy. And he said, well, how did you know? And I said, I didn't. And he said, you're fired probably perfectly. So yeah, yeah. And that's when I started really doing my own research and homework, rather than relying on mutual fund wholesalers guys come in. They bring you launch, and then they take out they wine and dine ya golf games and all that stuff. And whether you want to admit it or not you start to tend to like to want to do business with those jar. They're buddies with you now right? Business with us.

And then all of a sudden, does it rained up in the next county. I mean, this is this is chasing yield so, so money managers do this your financial adviser, probably not the good ones. Not the best practices ones. But many do this mine mutual fund is better than your mutual surprised at that. I'm surprised it John, it's of course, it's not with mutual funds as much anymore with money managers. That's what is their investment platforms. And now with all the software, you can screen funds in ten seconds. I understand. Maybe you put the window dressing at the end of the quarter you've, you know, you take the best performers you stick them in there. So that when the report comes out, it looks like you had, it the whole time I get it, I suppose, but even that I've just not convinced it's the right thing. So I was starting with the two twenty nineteen studied by MorningStar. So this is just fresh off the press. Right. The print. Showed the same behavior including moving into previous outperformers away from premium previous underperformers, once again, the funds that perform on the past did not go on to perform, and I was thinking about you. When I first met, you know, you're a very young man, that, well, twenty four or something a little bit of money. And you, you were glued to the what the oak funds or something like that. I'm trying to remember it. Zillow green. Oh, yeah. We don't even. They were technology finds that I was talked into buying by the morning show guy who fancied himself armchair strategist, and I bought them and the next day after I bought these NASDAQ funds. This is again in the nineties. I'm looking at the TV for an hour hour and a half the next day and just thinking. Oh man. I hope it goes up. Oh, no. Look at it, it's going down. It created a lot of stress on my part, which brings me to the financial pornography. I don't have time to really get into this, but Nick Magli early wrote about this, and it's really brilliant stuff. I it's a term that I used to use twenty years ago, it was made famous by somebody that was I, I didn't coin it, but here's what he had to say. Financial pornography is the normalization of exceptional financial circumstances in order to gain attention. He's talking about the financial press. And how they utilize headlines, essentially to try to get clicks through and to convince you that you're an idiot, basically unless you did what I told you to do or what you could've done. Maybe they didn't. Tell me do it at all. But you could have done this. He says this considered article, I read recently about a young woman living in Manhattan, while making only twenty five bucks an hour. Of course you can't live in Manhattan on twenty five bucks an hour. But she, you know, became wealthier whatever, but what she didn't do is tell them that her parents paid her rent, you know, they gave her a credit card and so forth. Oh, so that will how I how I lived in Manhattan, well, twenty five bucks. An hour is pretty good. Not for Manhattan, not from an Hatton. Yeah. Then he goes on other headline investor became a millionaire twenty six to make a lot of money master these ten rule. Oh, those are. Yeah. Okay, if you're clicking on that forget it. He goes. Onto say, how did the guy make the million bucks? He did became a millionaire at twenty six all when real estate one hundred percent financed, totally leveraged real estate. He became a millionaire, and none of that leverage stuff was in his top ten rules, wasn't really had nothing to do with real estate nothing to do with leverage. I could take, you know, borrow twenty thousand dollars go to Las Vegas. And if I'm lucky bet my way, up to a million bucks, next one was on this day, nineteen Ninety-seven Amazon goes public, if you invested one thousand dollars in that particular IPO, it would be worth one point two million dollars today that was a tweet.

"Dragging, my part folio down. Okay. This is where number two really hits home with me. I think it's a false thought to think that bonds are a safe investment at all times because they could put a drag on your part folio as it is for me. And I ain't happy right? You know, it's teeter totter know. You know, you don't want. You don't want to be the little kid on the playground with the big kid on the other end as interest rates rise. The I mean the bond value goes down it's their proportional. So when you think about that Terrell, I mean, I know that you in your portfolio yourself. I mean, you got to think a little bit more aggressively. But I guess that's a function to where you are in your retirement right now, what age you are in what planning when you're looking at income planning retirement planning, if you're plenty five versus fifty. When I was there. Yeah. You know, I got into the National Football League as a young player could take more risk because I had some time wasn't near my retirement age. So all right. Let me just be a little bit more aggressive in my investments. And as I've gotten older, I'm forty five years old now, I don't think that way anymore. I just it's a different time. So I'm a little bit more. I guess yeah. I'm a little bit more careful can't afford to have any major losses now. So I have to be a a little bit more. You know, this less aggressive in little bit more conservative in how I think. But also, you definitely want to give some gains in there. But you don't want to. I know I'm not a position right now to do anything for like if I have a major loss right now that I don't know if I can recover because I'm I'm entering retirement age time is always running. It's like a football game. And we've made that analogy last week where you talk about are you in the fourth quarter right now. With your retirement are you in your mid to late fifties? Seeing the you know, the the last half the fourth quarter, or are you in the first half of that that makes a big difference? Another thing too. Isn't it that you can assume that some financial tools are always good summer always bad, but that's not necessarily true either. Because you can't be prejudiced about one investment or of another keep your eyes open, right -solutely. And again, you know, just thinking I mean, it's like we were just talking about bombs. They at one time they were they were quite a quite something. And now not as much and again, the same thing with the newest folks. I mean, they went through a whole, you know, evolution with annuities from always being bad to now. Guess what? There's some good ones out there. There's always hibernates to Terrell that people can take advantage of to retirement. Absolutely. When you look at stuff, it'd be nice if it was all black and white right in terms of. Okay. This is always that is always that's the same thing with the you know, when you're playing football to it's there are no absolute, no absolutes. No. But there's there's definitely different kinds of. You know offenses and you see today and how some teams going back to our more traditional office. But then you have some guys doing a little bit of a hybrid between this new sort of read option offense. And and what they've done in the past. And and it really just it's about what fits the, you know, the players the coaches, and that's system and try to figure out what's the best fit for them. And once you figure that out then what you stick with it. Here's something that should be near dirtier heart as an athlete Terrell that is some people in retirement one of the big mistakes, they make is not planning for long term health care on. I know there's varying opinions on this and the cost thereof as a good investment. Isn't it not a good investment? But when you stop and think about it, you have to look at it in a lot of different ways. Because sometimes people underestimate the need for it because they're feeling healthy right now. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, something with me as coming out. You know, basically retiring from football the age of twenty eight years old. That I thought about healthcare at that point. So why would I think about that? But yeah. Years later right now, forty five, and that's that's really kind of forefront of my thought processes to make sure that you know, that I'm taking care of and from that standpoint, it's and it's really again is is kind of we talk about the different stages of a game. I'm like in a third quarter here, and I need to make sure that that's in plan are in place for when I needed because it seemed like it's going to be more sooner than later. And so you got to make that investments at that long term healthcare. Well, that's true. Because a lot of new shares a lot of financial planners. In fact, I would just did a program this morning where the statistic was that one out of three people will need some sort of long-term healthcare steam, that's amazing. And again, you have to plan for it as difficult as that is and and like Terrell just said he's in the third quarter. And you don't have very much time for a Justin anymore, and you need an income plan to I know coach P talks about this. He's out on a Simon right now. But he always talks about an income plan, not just a retirement plan. But some kind of a plan that will afford you Terrell lasting income when you are ready to retire that have that extra income you need for some of your wants and needs. But mostly your wants when you retire. Yeah. Yeah. You know, it's it's really been kind of opening this sort of shift in mentality of just getting income versus some passive income. You know, income you can go out there and get that for me. I do a lot of speaking engagements and a lot of appearances. But when I look back at him like, wow. This this only works if I'm doing if I'm working. So now, we allocate something that's more passive that. You know, if I'm at home if I can't travel income coming from. And so there's been a mental ship and trying to shift. Focus and energy into more income producing endeavors, whether it's income properties. Whether it's a some type of bonds that are, you know, whatever it is or some something this this push off some sort of passive income. And that's really what I've been focused on the last couple of years versus when I first started. It was all about hey, I just want the income now. So I can I was young about energy can go out there and and travel the world, and I can spend five or six days a week on the road. And it was working as I'm getting older. So I need a little bit more, passive income -solutely. And and again, that's kind of what planning for retirement is is to plan for that. And to make sure you're there and just to make sure you're going to reach your retirement goals in time. So here's here's the thing.

"folio" Discussed on Accidental Tech Podcast
"And then within like, thirty seconds. I realized he has taken the taken the case the folio whatever stupid word apple uses Ford takes the folio off smart. Keyboard full you. Yeah. Yeah. So he takes a smart keyboard folio, he takes the folio off. And I see him doing the ridiculous look that he made Marco an idea, which I hope you saw on the show art listeners from the last episode in looking peering down every every side of my ipad. And oh, boy did I feel vindicated when he confirmed my assessments that it was not at all bent. And then I did the other also tried to pick it up one hand, which is very difficult. But I was able to do it eventually. And then I did the other test which I was very interested to try checking whether it rocks when you put no case on it. And you put it down on a presumably table with the camera down. And everyone was saying oh, the camera down. I thought it would be rocking. But I was drawing on it with. With the pencil, and it wasn't it didn't rock and even less episode. Marco was speculating, maybe they intentionally bend slightly so doesn't rock, and maybe that's why has been or whatever. I mean. Maybe that's what they're going for. But I can tell you Casey's which does not have a bend that I could perceive. If you put it down with the camera bumped down on a flat hard able it rocks. Of course, it does. How could it not? There's a camera poking at ones that does it rock allot. No. But you can both see it and feel it if you press down on one corner of this four-corner thing Iraq's a little bit. So I I feel like that is a. I feel refreshed knowing that there's not some magic going on somewhere. Because everyone was saying that this thing this four hundred thing that has won a bulge in one corner. Only doesn't rocket totally does it's not. It's the reason people I think thought that it didn't rock is because the bulge for the camera. As compared to the length of the entire I pet, especially the really big ipad. But even the eleven inch is so small, right. So you it the rocking is barely perceptible. But it is perceptible like it doesn't knock or bang or whatever put it move slightly. And I think it's fine as we'll get to a moment. Casey now has a pencil. It's got his name on it. So in case, he forgets. We is he looking Pence on it says Casey, apple pencil. Applicants was just the prog name. That's not part of your name case. You don't get confused. Oh, good. Good. Good. I've got very confused. Thanks for the thanks for the clarification Casey apple pencil and seeing the inscription and apple pencil makes me think I don't really want. The apple. Part that I'd rather just say Casey because now it says Casey apple pencil, and you can't just read Casey you have to re Casey apple pencil, and I don't like reading Casey apple Pennzoil anyway. The pencil is really nice. Whatever says about it is true. The Matt finish finishes really nice. As compared to the glossy one. The weight felt good. The flat side was fine. The clipping on the magma things really cool. Far as I could tell at work like the other one, the devil tapping business can take it or leave it. What else to say about the ipad? That's about it. I didn't. I didn't use it very long. I did use the keyboard a little bit. I don't like boards on my ipad. But it felt okay. He missing out. Yeah. I'm with Marco, you're missing out really doesn't like the keyboard on the back of the thing like where you can feel the keys in the back. I don't mind it that much. But again, I would I don't think I would get this with a keyboard. So yeah, that's that's my one month late brief review of the new pet seems pretty good. It rocks raves. John's archaism. Yeah. I mean, I will say like, I really really think like after whatever it's been, you know, two months three months of using this thing the only complaint, I really have about it are that I do keep covering up the face. I d camera and that the new design of the folios where it covers the back and attacks by the back does make it a way bulkier, both the keyboard and the non keyboard cover..
