Some economists argue that better working conditions could change the game higher wages good benefit packages and how about a shorter workweek for the same pay jets. Lehman has this profile of a new zealand company. That's trying that approach. Few months i've been giving whole question of of how we work quantities.

There are about one hundred fifty one article slash notes written by mine valley members around the world. So hokey enjoy that. Yeah i want to emphasise something. Which is the note that you took is a great example because you took those notes and you organized in presented them for the consumption of others. Yes that's the important part if you just like random stuff and have like typos revisions that no one understands that there's no headings and there's no images you share that with someone they're going to be like. What is this text vomit that you sent me you. Might you create even from the first step of capture like from the very first step. You had other people in mind you were making for an audience that meant your notes were more succinct made more sense they had headings and images that is really what i encourage people to do is create their no taking for themselves. They're of course but also for the other people that they're going to impact and exactly exactly exactly so so. This is the whole principle here so you know what inspired me to create this diogo.

"Really into the wordpress ecosystem there is probably close to fifty different options for notetaking ups and that's just the first one beautiful so the first one is a note taking app and we shed a number of suggestions now also mentioned that incites is completely free. I built this myself. But i made it free to the world on insights about mine valley dot com and there is no level the highest level is completely free. Okay so there's no hidden subscription whatever. It's just completely free now. What is the second tool. We should be using tiago okay. The second tool is what. I call a read later app. I have a separate article called the secret. Power of relator apps that someone could probably find in dropping the chat but basically here. Here's the issue is the same way that you're very careful what you put in your brain. You're careful about what you allow to go in there. You went good thoughts enriching thoughts wisdom. Right not noise. You also want to be careful about what you put in your second brain. You don't just want to dump. There's something i noticed which. I call information hoarding right. It's kind of like those house hoarders. Who just like pile like trash in random things in pizza boxes in their home. Some people do that with their software. They just pile. Like articles and books in quotes tweets. And all these things without really paying attention to apps so what are related app is. It's very simple. It's just like a little button that goes into your browser on your computer or on your phone and every time you think you might want to read something or watch something or listen to something. You're not sure if it's good you're not sure if it's relevant you click that button. And he gets saved to basically a reading list you can also have videos and audio but think of it like a reading list. It's almost like a personalized magazine of the things that you said. You want to get back to in the mola. You come across this cool article right like yourself in this situation now. Usually you think you have two choices. I can stop what i'm doing and spent twenty minutes reading or i cannot read it then lose it forever. Those are the two options that people think they have. No there's a third option which is click buttons. Save it to your relator up next time you have some free time. Open that thing up. And you'll have this curated collection of things to consume and there's two leading contenders which are instant paper and pocket. The paper him pocket are the two most popular ones by far. I don't even actually know of any other people. There's one upcoming called matter if you're an early adopter and you wanna try the cool new thing. You can also check out matter. I loved that goes really. Those are really really cool tits. A related function is actually coming. The insights we rebuild is still to be super flexible. So when you create an insight you can attach it to an object You can attach it to a link and that could be an article in the new just tag it rebe later you can attach it to a book so if you go there and you type in my name for example you'll see all my books and then you can just tag your replay the note to a book soon. You're going to be able to tag a visit later. So you can literally tag it to restaurants locations around the world. You can target two movies. So there's gonna be a Utility darris well. That's really useful. Thank you for that tip. of course. Yeah those are the first to should we keep going yes. Let's go onto number three and four. Okay the third one is a is a calendar app and this one is really specific to me. It's been widely known. But i'm still actually kinda surprised. There's some people that don't use. I mean the classic is google calendar right like. Don't try to remember your appointments. That is that's like the lowest value information that you could be keeping up here. You wanna deal with invites. You wanna deal with appointments on your calendar you want everything to be sinked across devices so here on the go and you don't know what's happening you can just look on your phone. And so it's clear the mutual expectation. You know whatever. We starting is at seven or seven thirty. How are we. Meeting is a google hangouts. Zoom phone call. Are there any notes in the little notes section like your calendar really should be one of the very first things you get out of your brain and into software right. I love that. I loved that i use google calendar for everything go gillanders definitely a really robust tool and the fourth item. The fourth item is a manager. A task manager so. This is the the bread and butter of productivity. It's a digital to do list right like you think your to do list. Is you know that little piece of paper on your desk. That has five items that might be the to do list for now or for today but if you actually take a and this is what. Gt teaches to do brain dump. Few actually were to sit down and it will probably take an hour or two and write down everything you have to do from big to small from importance to urgent from short-term to long-term every little thing you have to fixing your house every email you have to send every book you wanna read there would be hundreds hundreds and hundreds and hundreds did i guarantee just try and so once you realize that you realize little scraps of paper on my desk don't work. I need software that can organize. It can be searched that can be organized reorganize tag broken into categories. Everything i'm saying is from getting things done. It's completely you know. Top by david allen but the task manager that i use that i really love and recommended. Unfortunately it's only for mac in iowa. Is things things by cultured. A company called cultured code. I i was using things for many years I stopped. And i'll tell you why if you study nouri als program on mine valley on the power of focus in becoming indestructible. He actually says. Don't use a task manager..

"So i got fed up with ebola notes because a feature rightous and i created insights. It's mind valleys. Not taking a lot of people are saying it's more powerful than evernote because it's designed for collaborative note taking a so if you remind valley member definitely use insights. Because what happens is if you're doing a mind valley program or even attending a live call you can directly write notes on this live called and share it with other members and even set conditions you share with members in estonia so let me idea okay so s s was talking go inside start mind value dot com and you will be able to actually read write a note reich greed and insight and actually attach it to an object undermine valley if you type in tiago s- name You will see this conversation is will be there. You can ride in incite attached to that object and Shed notes on this conversation with the members. So gonna pack that aside. But i'm so glad that you started with a note utility because i'm obsessed with that i mean it's fundamental its fundamental like. I always ask people. Okay you're learning something. You're reading a book. It listening to this podcast. You're taking a course mine dolly course it's like okay i. What are the chances that everything every word in that piece of content is going to be perfectly applicable right. This instant like zero. Maybe most one percent two percent five percent the other ninety or ninety five percent. You have to preserve through time so that you can revisit it when you're ready to take action on that i think of the best book read year. You can even remember it. Can you remember one point from that book. A challenge or if you can two or three i doubt it right. Here's the cool thing by the way. If you're using inside you can attach it to books. So when i go inside right now i can see that mine. Valley members are writing about books. Such as the power of your subconscious mind in the flow by at least ditty. But the cool thing is when you click on the book you see shed notes across the entire community so you don't see what you are learning from the book you can see notes by other members so every time i read a book my notes actually go inside and i make them public for all read. I love it so many options right. You could use the note default notes app on the apple phone if you don't even want to download anything inside sounds great. They're simple notes which is made by wordpress..

"Falke rather than the regular seven. Having more time for your kids who wouldn't want that so let's give a big warm mind valley. Welcome to go. The i go. Hi bobby a grid. Really glad to be a russian. I looking forward to this for a long time. Absolutely so i will tell us a little bit about yourself what you dive so deep into productivity going from the the countryside of eastern ukraine where i was a peace corps volunteer p the peace corps is a us government program that sends mostly young people volunteer to different countries. I did it from two thousand nine. Two thousand eleven small village in like the most rural part of the far reaches of eastern ukraine. All the time in the world no particular pressure no particular responsibility just there by myself. Teaching english and i went from there when i return home from my period of service to the middle of silicon valley. I was dropped. I was like parachuted in to the very heart of silicon valley. Or i worked for a small consulting firm that kinda felt like a startup. It was like six people trying to build this new company in the middle of silicon valley. And i can remember this feeling of like what is going on here. My email inbox is like a news. Ticker it doesn't stop and like there's this thing called slack it also doesn't stop and people are texting me on my personal phone and that doesn't stop them just like this is absolutely insane. How can anyone even do anything in this environment. I'm laughing because i relate. I can totally relate to that. Go on to me. It was like survival. It was like for me to to even have peace of mind on a minute to minute level for me to finish at a reasonable time which was still eight pm instead of like ten pm for me to have weekends for me to have a social life for me to have a girlfriend. I needed some solution. And so i was at a friend's house who was further along in her career and there was a book on the shelf which was getting things done also known as gt td. By david. allen. And i picked it up. And he's kind of you know kind of like business like as a suit and he looks very serious and looks a little stiff but he has this term as his personal productivity and. I had never even heard of this term. I didn't even know. That was the thing i thought. Productivity was like for economists or maybe like factories right. And i just picked up. This book and started reading was introduced to such an amazing world. Which is this idea that you can get better at your fundamental ability to just get things done. That was news to me. And i think it's still news to a lot of people like a lot of people. I think still go to work. And just think. Oh yeah i just go to work from the sun to this time and i just do things the way that i have always done them or the way that other people do them or the way that seems obvious and then i just finished and then i go home but within those hours there is an infinite depth. This is what i love about this. This field is there's always new angles new aspects new more subtle sophisticated more leveraged ways of completing our our work. I love that now. You call your work building a second break. What is this concept second break. Yes okay so a second brain is my term for system. it's a distributed system outside of your head. That's the important parts not in here. It's out here. It's a system of all the technology. Broadly defined from apps to software on your computer to your different hardware devices to you know sas services that you subscribe to to social media networks even physical items like notebooks and pens and paper like imagine. Almost your head is the sun and you have all these tools like will orbiting planets. Right that is your second brain. This cloud of intelligence that you have at your disposal and my thesis. My belief is that those tools have now become so powerful so easy to use and so intelligent for the first time we've always had tools for tens of thousands of years but now in the past thirty we can say they have intelligence some kind of intelligence. The power of this cloud is so great that it makes more sense to optimize your second brain than to try to perfectly optimize your brain. I left that so when it comes to optimizing your second brain. What are some of the tools you suggest. In what tips would you suggest we apply to these tools. Yes so here's where. I think i might differ from other so i'm not that interested in the frontier of technology. Like you have people on your your podcast and come speak at your events. That are working on just insane. Things artificial intelligence and self driving cars and the really that far from i'm interested in the the basics like the fundamentals like what are the the. Abc's they're reading writing arithmetic of knowledge work. Because we still don't know that like think about how new knowledge workers knowledge work was coined. The term was coined. I think in the sixties or seventies. But i would say only in the past ten or twenty years has really come into its own right and so we're still like babies ruling babies with knowledge work. We don't even know like how it works really. And so what i would say is there's four basic apps. This is where i would. I would have people start okay. There are four lake. I don't understand how you can manage life or your work without these four apps. Okay and they're all free. You don't have to spend one cent. They all have different options right. So you can choose the one that fits your operating system that fits the level of complexity that you want that is designed with the color scheme that you like and i have a blog. Post may be someone on your team could find it which is called one touch to inbox zero. If you google that you'll find it on my blog which kind of explains all of this but basically let me give you the short version. Those four aps are a digital notes app k. You need this is probably the most important you need a place a trusted place outside your head where you park things that you wanna keep track of ideas insights theories quotes material without having to memorize it so i personally evernote to other most popular options for people who take my course our notion in rome research so i just want to add something there so mind value your mind valley member that not in your mind remember because we just made this free but checkout insights dot mind value.

"forte" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"Thursday on maximum fun. I don't know why i'm using this voice now. Welcome back tables. Hi i'm jesse thorn my is will forte. He was a cast member on saturday. Night live for eight years. He created and starred in the last man on earth on fox. The movie mma gruber as well when we talked last year. He starred in the film extraordinary. You can stream that now at home. Let's get back into our conversation. I don't want to let any more of this conversation. Pass before. I bring up mcgruder You're your recurring saturday night. live sketch. turned television commercial turned feature film. we like to hit the commercial part the most. Yeah i mean that's usually with commercial. That's one of the craziest parts of the There are many crazy parts of the mcgrew story. Which is i like to think of it. As a story of sort of hero's journey but like one of the craziest parts of mcgrew is that it was a recurring live. Sketch which i mean we can. Let's start what will start by listening to this saturday night. Live version of mma gruber Which is basically the joke of which started out as You know macgyver is was famous for coming. Improvising solutions to Episodic television challenges through like things that were left around initially gruber was kind of like what if those things were gross things and then the joke sort of became over time Wh- what is the worst person that could star in a regular television show and also like how much badness can we cram into a profoundly short sketch that just ends with everyone exploding. So this is. This is mcgrew bar on saturday night. Live and he and his co worker are racing the clock defusing a bomb as they always wear when an oddly familiar. Stranger shows up with some advice while shut from looks about dynamite. We've got exactly twenty seconds. Just stay calm because everything. I need to defuse this bomb inside this room. Picky tough me that pink cap on the gerber new guy. What's your name again macgyver. To stupid name macgyver. Passed me that thumb tack. I'd go the gum wrapper and a care about what you're saying because i'm just saying i do it a little differently. Well macgyver gruber. that's what you think. What's that supposed to mean ten seconds. It was a cold december night. It's boy mr macgyver. What are you gonna call him but gruber look gruber macgyver. The perfect name for the perfect baby seconds. Macgyver don't you worry. Mcgrew over nothing bad is ever going to happen to you. Not on my watch. So years ago is a great film critic. Roger ebert wrote this review of one of my favorite movies wet hot american summer that was a parody of the Hell mudehwe hello fodder song. Yeah and roger ebert for all. His many gifts wasn't the world's greatest paradis but the point of it was that That this movie was just totally. Execrable was just really really horrible. And i remember feeling so betrayed by that review when i saw the movie and it became one of my favorite films and i was thinking of that as i read the new york times review of mma gruber By a scott who's a wonderful critic really insightful. Brilliant critic who opens essentially with the question and he literally asked this question. Why does this exist. and then i was also struck. It continues along those lines questioning. Why a movie like mma gruber would have come into existence later on. He says kristen wig was was your co star in the film. Kristen wig one of the funniest people alive. Mr forte is not guede gains extra points. I disagree but it gains extra points with the with the you know style. Guide formality the new york times referring to you mr forte. But yeah mcgruder was really brutally received. I will say. I thank god my i have. I will wait. Go go ahead and say my my friend jordan. God bless him saw the movie in a in an early screening a pre release screening and said. Oh my god. Mma gruber is so funny. You have to go see gruber and i went and saw mma gruber and i. I cried with laughter. I was one of the funniest one of the most laughing. I've ever done a movie theater But it was a box office bomb and jet. Broadly poorly reviewed. not universally. but broadly. Oh i would say. I would say i would argue that okay. I certainly. there were a lot of places that gave it horrible reviews but there were some very good reviews from respected critics You know peter. Travers loved it and i can't remember the other people but i would say i wouldn't. I was actually happy that it was not skewered as much as it could have been like. You know you go to rotten tomatoes and you know there's catholic mothers digest or whatever that's reviewing it and that's part of the hundred percent and it's like well you know. Yeah of course. Of course this is not a movie for i am. I was raised catholic. So so i knew specifically that i knew ended. This was not for catholic brethren. You had tried putting a gallery stick in your body at sunday's yeah exactly that it did not fly attacks certainly certainly that you know that the There were bad reviews and understand that. I loved the movie and proud of the movie and i think that I i would say that. I think a lot of the people who reviewed it. You could tell who wasn't going to give it a chance in the first place you'd go through any go. Oh this person never was going to give it a chance or maybe didn't even watch it or like you just there. So many things about you could. They would make a joke about.
Final 2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings: Trevor Lawrence and Then What?
"So guys let's start off with the quarterbacks as this is probably the least eventful group especially because we just let mark handle this position group. Because that is his forte his speciality. We don't even really need to go through the ordering or anything specific with this one as we're going to do it the other position groups but the thing that's worth noting is it. Mark was highly reluctant to really go past mack jones and then after thinking it over he threw in kellyn mind. Davis mills kyle. Trask jamie newman. And that was pretty much it so i think we can all agree here that the quarterback class in in this year's nfl draft isn't exactly very good on the back end. There's a lot of really good talent at the top but as we start to push towards the second and third round like we don't even have a third rounder in this group. There's not really a lot of good options now. It doesn't really tier that way. Joe obviously you have the tran said quote unquote time trevor. Lawrence. and then. There's a lot of debate on who that actual second quarterback would be adjusted sales from ohio. State zack wilson from byu. Mac from alabama. It seems like the jets. Presume that zack wilson from byu. And i mean. There's a lot of rumors that three the san francisco forty niners are really all in on mac jones but we'll find that out next thursday. It's gonna be interesting. I mean outside of the top five quarterbacks in legit all five of them could go for the giants would be ideal for the new york giants. That would be absolutely but outside of those five. It's it's kind of a crap shoot between callum on. I'll trask davis mills. Yeah i actually wasn't surprised to of see the look of pain almost on mark's face when he had to we almost twisted his arm into throwing out his like second and fourth round quarterbacks. This is a very top heavy quarterback draft class and part of that could just be the position. Where if you've got a quarterback who is able to be accommodated starter. He's probably going to be a first rounder and probably a high first
New York Mets vs Miami Marlins game ends in controversy
"New york. Yesterday we saw one of the biggest controversies early in the early season. The mets in the marlins. What a game. This was in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Future of Tour Business in 2021 with Steve Perillo
"This is a bad year tour companies. So what do you do when you run into tour company and suddenly. Nobody's traveling today on travel with rick. Steves we're joined by steve parilla of perello tours to talk about how we who make our living in the travel industry are trying to stay afloat in these months of zero revenue during the global pandemic. Steve is joining us to discuss. How the pandemic is hitting his industry and his expectations for the future steve. Thanks for joining us. How are you holding up. Pretty good considering pretty good. Have a driving tour company. Bring about what fifteen thousand people to europe each year. You're the third generation. Ceo of your family to her company. Perello tours how was twenty twenty looking before the pandemic hit it was going to be our best year since probably nineteen ninety-seven. It was going to be a very good year. We've been through a bad time so you know it's not an essential purchase trip so Before nine eleven we had all kinds of stuff If you're in the trump is every ten years you're going to have a really bad year but you lose half your business okay. But twenty twenty It was one hundred percent a loss of business which is astounding. We were euphoric in the tourist industry. We were queued up for our best years ever. The economy was so hot. Everybody wanted to travel. Everything was coming together. You know and you ramp up for it. And then said and bam not only do you have revenue. But you've got a lot of people that have given you money and you have to give back refunds. How did you know that. That is the bane of every tour operator. That's how they go out of business. They spend the deposits before the trip. You're not supposed to do. You're supposed to Ideally put it in escrow you put in a separate account. You don't touch it and we touched it but My father taught me about the rainy day fund and It was millions and millions of dollars. We had to return. Well i we as people to postpone it to this year and a lot of them did but now we're facing march april and may and this time they really do what their money back and it's justified so Were returning all the money and We're not gonna pay taxes for a few years i assume and We're gonna be fine. I don't wanna go through this again in my lifetime though. I don't really want to go. i don't either so you're returning all the money. Meaning you're not gonna pay taxes because you've lost so much money that you'll have losses to take forward under obama two thousand and ten You could deduct losses for five years after the bat. You're right now. There's there's actually laws in some states that prohibit tour companies like ours from doing anything in where i live in washington state. We don't have that option. I mean that money is protected until the tour is actually performed and at first. I didn't like that love. But i see i see the need for it and i'm glad we have it now. It gives us a little guidance. I always think capitalism uses chaperone and. That's what good government is all about for sure sure Now when you look at the industry in general how do you think. The industry did as far as relations and respect to their clientele. There were millions of people who were more than just inconvenienced by the advent of the pandemic when it comes to prepaid to her plans and so on. Well we all wanted to. We all wanted to ask the customer. Let us hold the money and we're going to Apply to next year or the next year. We're even going to give you some money off. And sem didn't really have an option that some of the cruise lies i really You know we're going to give you credit for the future but we have whatever. The customer wanted We did in this regard so we returned the money and a lot of cases and the goodwill is amazing. And they're gonna come back to us for sure. Nancy the goodwill. I mean we made a point of just not even letting people leave their money with this. Thank goodness we had the capacity to do. We sent back. Twenty thousand deposits took months to do it. It was a lot of work. We're not geared up to send the money back but that's what we had to do because as you said we're in this together for the long term and we gotta take care of of our public What do you think about the cost of cancelling tours. You had already set up as a tour organizer did you have to. Did you take a hit. By cancelling out of buses you had arranged in hotels. you had booked on not really the The airlines were considerate. You know we're on the same boat so So they were nice. They were nice. They worked with us in after the whole Catastrophic advent of this for tourism. How did the insurance companies come out. Did they step up to the plate and help people with it. Was the public generally satisfied if they had purchased. You know trip interruption insurance or was this something that was not covered It's not covered. They were tough. They were tough. I found them really not helpful at all. The insurance companies In general they didn't their reputation. Took a hit then after that because they didn't lose much money because depending people lost money in the insurance companies did not right and we have to make up the difference. if somebody We have penalties if you cancel but this was a totally exceptional situation so I don't care where. I don't care about money. We got through it. It's all gonna come back. You know you gotta be classy in this world and then you got to be standing you can have your team together when when you come out of this and we can ramp up again. So when i think of the long term consequences of covid in the pandemic. I'm concerned about the small mom and pop businesses especially in italy. That's your forte. Big companies can get through this pandemic. They can even profit from it. But it's the little moms and pops whether it's the little museum or the the little restaurant or or the little Hotel our guest house. What is your sense about. What's gonna be still standing when when the clouds of this pandemic lift. I know a lot of restaurants are not going to be there. But the italian government european governments are a lot more generous with their citizens so People still got their paychecks. Some checks were protected. I don't know all the details of italian government law but there are a lot more A helpful than the america you know. We have our our strengths to. Yeah well they pay high taxes and part of that is they expect their government to stand by them in a in a time. Like this it's Different from country to country. But in general i think it's fair to say that small operations mom and pops and so on her have a good chance to get through this at this second year of this cova. I don't know how long they can last. But that really is what makes travel so appealing is not to have to go to a strip mall and buy from international corporation. But you have that character you got the local little entrepreneurial ventures and the people with a passion and they love their clientele and it's a joy to be part of that scene and it's a fun puerta. Tourism isn't the old crafts are still alive. And well you know the Inlaid wood is an amazing art. Mosaics are fantastic. We can around these artisans with are group's at the table and and watch that happening. This is travel with rick. Steves were comparing notes on running a tour company in the middle of a pandemic right. Now with steve. Parilla
"forte" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"Here. What are we got next question. This one increased variations games. Both offense and defense team's gonna put more value on versatility. I think that's something that we've always discussed on the podcast book. Yeah absolutely you're trying to find guys that can do multiple things on both sides of the ball receivers that you could line up in the backfield talking about safety so you could put down. The boxer can cover in the slot. Versatility is huge positions football. We've talked about the league. Trending that way not only on offense with these wide receivers that can play like wingback running backs but defense safeties light linebackers corners. Coming back to play safety absolutely worth being shift. Versatility has really coveted. Yeah look in the nfc west if you want to see it on the offensive side of the ball. Look what the niners are doing. You want to see it on the defensive side of the ball look with the arizona. Cardinals are doing trying to be as multiple on versatile as possible. Well there's a fun show today. But we had a blast. I wanna thank matt forte for joining us. Great to visit with him as well as your mark chase. We've had a great time.

Montana's Governor Says Conceal-Carry Law Bolsters Self-Defense Rights
"Will soon be able to carry concealed firearms on campus without a permit. Yellowstone Public Radio's Kevin traveling reports. Montana State University. Senior Chance kind is on his way out the door of his Bozeman apartment, keys, wallet phone, double checking My knife pens. My pencils Got a Glock has is the case Most times kind is in public. He's carrying a concealed Glock 19 pistol in his jeans. Practically muscle memory for the 22 year old to grab heading out the door. We've interest to get some groceries. Thank you. Yeah, but one place he can't carry a concealed gun, His college campus. At least until June. 1st when the new law goes into effect at state universities, a third generation Montana and from a farm and ranch area kind of grew up around guns. After shopping for groceries, he breaks down in brushes his pistol. Well, looks like we're actually pretty. Clinton's students who carry on campus will need to finish the hunters, education or basic gun safety course. Kind, says he's practice, drawing his pistol in front of his bathroom mirror, something he hasn't had to do for real after carrying for 2.5 years, and I thank God every day for that kind, says his father, a former sheriff's deputy taught him to take care of himself and others to be the first line of defense. In case there's an active shooter situation. For example, you are the hidden protector. You're not looking for a fight. But you're willing to finish it. Montana's new governor, Greg Jean Forte, is a friend to gun rights advocates as the state's first Republican executive and 16 years he's starting to enact long held conservative priorities. The right of the people. Keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. During a bill signing ceremony last week, GM 40 railed against gun control measures recently proposed by President Joe Biden said the new concealed carry law bolster self defense rights. Montana University system, and most Democratic state lawmakers oppose the bill, fearing it could lead to accidents and more students harming themselves on campus. Montana has the nation's third highest suicide rate, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Studies have consistently found that suicide risk increases with access to guns. So this is like the main lobby area where a lot of people like Tonto Hang out. Do homework knew our worries MSU freshman and dorm resident Daisy Cory, who's loving her college experience, but just the thought of someone having a gun in the dining hall when I'm just trying to eat a sandwich. Good morning. That's scary. If there's a dispute, she says she won't feel safe next fall. Knowing students may have guns in the library or one of her philosophy class is their signs on the front door that say no nicotine. No tobacco, But you're allowing 18 year olds have guns who are drinking on the weekends and are living with a bunch of people. It's totally crazy to me, Corey says. Hearing about the concealed carry bill unearthed trauma from her childhood in Colorado and age 13. She says she was playing Jenga alone with a friend when he took his own life with a handgun in front of her. Now. Cory says she's considering transferring from MSU. She's hopeful the Montana University system will challenge the new law in court, but Deputy Commissioner Kevin McRae thinks that's unlikely. Instead, he says, the Board of Regents will probably implemented law with an eye toward the 10 states that currently allow students to carry guns on campus. But even the areas that we look to for best practices there are different nuances that Keep this sort of uncharted water and knew. For example, McCrae says, Montana will be the only state to allow 18 year olds to carry guns in dorms for NPR News and Kevin traveling in Helena.

"We welcome you back. Our is live and underway busy busy I our. Thirty minutes ago we learned that the first SEC game has been postponed of this twenty twenty campaign it will be. Rescheduled Vanderbilt Missouri scheduled for this Saturday in Columbia. Now, be December twelfth. We'll talk to coach drink in thirty minutes and get his reaction to that. So here we go more phone calls in a minute a lot of fans unhappy from every aspect of the winners and losers speaking of the latter. Let's talk about the Lsu Tigers two weeks ago Scott Rabble a came on. Wasn't ready to hit the panic button. Everything was calm. Scott's gotcha very scopes. Scott Seen It all before. Scott. Have you seen anything quite like the ending of Saturday's game? Good afternoon how are you? and got to the NFL Yeah that's that's you mentioned I'm kind of reminded of the and it's not a good time Lsu that ninety nine, Game Alabama when just food he tried to run the ball down like. John elway. Pin Wheeled in the air came up a yard short and and they you know they they threw the ball and the they did it. They didn't score. So yeah, it was. It was reminds me of you not good times for Lsu but you know. I gotta say the way lsu played Saturday. On defense but also on offense failing to convert a third down there really is kind of justice. They didn't really deserve to win that game I, mean they they you know they pulled it out and they would've pulled it out there. It would have been a win that covered up a lot of a lot of issues. So what? I don't know if it's safe to go outside I. Mean I know I know the version fortunately escaped the worst of the storm the other day was farther to the West but I mean what? What what is the buzz in your town especially both Pallini and and I mean three games in he seems like he's on the tip of everyone's tongue is it fair? Oh. Sure? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean this is the this is the defense that You know this change Dave Randall left defensor longtime defensive coordinator WHO's hard under? Les. Miles. You know the several years ago he left me the head coach at Baylor. So they had to hire someone like forced out or anything. So hopefully knew who was here under miles and those first three great years in the Mouse Oh, five Oh, six Oh, seven the end up with a national championship and you know just it hasn't worked at me. This questions is Bo behind the Times is not adjusted to those are some great defensive back then with Clinton Dorsey and Tyson Jackson and and you know you're a great players like that got a little on Landry secondary great players like that, and you kind of wonder you know the Adjusting but. It's just been Y- coaches you're on himself is trying to put it all on him and the coaches and they got a coach better. You said that, Saturday, after the game you set it on his press conference today, they just lost followed. They're they're good players on the Stevens, their high NFL draft pick on the defense Derek Stanley Jacoby Stevens to real cox the transfer for. North. Dakota. State people said he might have been a first round draft pick. Had He come? Out and said of transferring Ali Gay Defensive End they lost a lot of great players, but this shouldn't be this bad and aurons You know famously said, then the all season, the defense look better in practice than at any time last year, and obviously that is not the case and they gave up eight plays a twenty yards of more. Missouri averaged almost nine yards per play and five and a half yards per carry it and it just that's just not. That's just not winning football and worst of all they all she just looked. I saw gene gene Chizik said after the game. So you. Look, like on Defense Soft and lost, and Lsu looks like both unfortunately for them. By, the way everything you just got through saying you could replicate for three or four other SEC schools except none of them are the defending champions like Lsu. Scott we're three games in I. Mean we all know that and I'm not sure how much you can value. A. Win Over Vanderbilt Right now considering the state of that program. But as you look ahead I, mean you don't look any farther than this weekend against Florida. LSU will need to score seventy points to keep up with them. Immediate? Looks. That way and I'm not a betting Guy Pa, my government I think I've looked at the over maybe go for that Florida's defense looks pretty challenge to Alabama wins and gives up forty eight points to stole miss. But the the disturbing serving big frail issue. Yeah. Everyone's having trouble defensively No question. Do you wonder if that lack of spring football or the proper time to prepare in the off season has hurt them But you know you look at that once you give six, hundred, twenty, three guys and the Mississippi State, history has been dreadful offense against Arkansas and Kentucky the last two weeks Missouri scored like I think three touchdowns combined the first Games averaging like fifteen points a game against Alabama Tennessee and it just go wild lsu just look great. I mean that's that's the part. That's that's extra disturbing prelates pans and like the lsu fans always. Always wanted this offense obviously, they complained for years and rightly. So by the the plotting less miles offense, but there's a lot of pride in the school, the the the the billy cannon is the star up in you know and and now Joe Borough and players like that. But the tried is always been the defense, the Chinese bandits, Tommy Tests Inova Win Dorsey Laurent Landry mentioned, Patrick, Peterson, Taran Taran Matthew, and what else he doesn't play Great Defense I. Think this is this is like a core value of lsu's program that is not being being held a lived up to, and it's it's very troubling Tila lsu probably would take a little less offense for some better defensive as. Scott Realistically I mean this weekend looks like a long shot I would have to say I mean still Alabama. Out There Auburn out there. South, Carolina am I mean everyone knows the schedule? I mean before the season some might be hard to win them all but maybe maybe eight or nine. Where's the sliding scale right now? Ball I don't know it's sliding really. Really. Bad way down the hill. You know a lot of hills here in Baton Rouge but he found it. It's sledding Hill that way. Down Victory Hill Yes for the team marches down normally before the Games by Tigers stadium is not vitriol right now I I like everybody else said like the six games else who's GonNa win and four games where the season's going to be decided Alabama Auburn Florida and Texas a&M, and right now I don't think he can after South Carolina just banning by the same score Lsu did Arkansas has played. She's gotTa go to they'll South Carolina, comes here in in two weeks I don't I don't think. There's any Sherwin left for L. Share on the schedule I don't think they're gonNA go one nine but I think right now you just gotTa. Look at what can you do to have a have a winning season they're still good players There's on this team in town they lost a lot from last year obviously, but you know the they've got to. Change, the things coach today coach talk today about simplifying both offense and defense. Again remember the offense was Owen on third down Saturday that's a pretty bad step to although this court forty-one points should have been enough to win, but it's still some really great players on the House Brennan. Has Not Been, Joe Borough, been very good. You know he's had over three hundred yards passing game over four hundred yards Saturday tariffs, marshalls been tremendous hit two, hundred, thirty, five, yard service and three touchdowns Saturday. So this, this isn't good players in the team, but they just got to get tougher and and find a way to grind out a win somewhere and and this is not entirely similar fall I gotta say from twenty. Dissimilar from twenty seventeen she lost at home Detroit and went to Florida the next week and they won the game I'm not saying I'm not predicting she win. But this have the size, a lot of field of that when they kind of looked tougher and more determined and they found a way to win and they've never looked back games on order on, they're gonna be hard pressed to avoid doing that obviously late this week. He had I wouldn't call it a charm to existence because now that you mentioned the troy game and there had been some ups and downs but certainly coming off the best year ever how is he handling the defeats? A He's he's trying to take a lot of the blame on himself and deflected from his team Not exactly deflecting from the assistant coaches said, he's talked about, hey, on defensive we just have one coverage and one one formation. Let's do that. Let's and you said. Some things on offense too. I think he's kind of talking about Scott Lenihan, the new guy, a passing game coordinator WHO and Red Zone specialists who take the place of Joe Brady who who was on the staff last year and of course talking about Botha? Lenient? Coach, and he said something telling today I thought that you said, you know the most Ryan. The defense but he he's he's going to you know be checked in on every formation every plan that they use you know as a defensive line coach that's his forte he he's going to be I think maybe a little more hands on with the formations they use and the and the and the coverages, and but some of that are doing well, he's Got Thrown out I think that. This is the defense he wanted this is he talking about being wardrobe four three and they've got a great. Turn of Russia there plus six turnover ratio they're doing very well at that the they're causing some some big plays in that in that regard and turnovers just can't get off the field and can't Can't stop people and giving up a big big yards on the ground, and then these these huge places. The elected eight plays a twenty yards or more Saturday and gets very, which is
Max Has NO FEAR FOR THE DEER + Nick Nurse ‘Coaching Clinic’
"That's not a bad shot wasn't a bad shopping to see not it was a bad shot. But how did they beat Philly? Was that a good shot? Just tell me that was was that a Nick nerve-wracking. This is the best coach you can do we need to Coalinga. Is that the best player you go? Okay. So this is what is what I wanted to hear from you mind me getting that. I mean running off the corner going all the way following the way from the three-point line that that was the way you designed. This is where I'm getting that thing. Okay. So then let's talk about that. Then ignorant didn't have a play lined up in that situation or at least we maybe didn't have the the player. Maybe maybe that's it. In my opinion. He said, you know what they figure things out up to this point. I'm going to let them just keep going cuz I have nothing and that's a problem that's off. Can't be that kind of Coach into play. I believe in this situation that Brad Stevens to me and although Nick nurse is the coach of the year. I like Brad Stevens home is a knows better now like next Nur Nick nurses X's and O's I think he is. I think he gets guys in places. They need to be and it has really worked out well for so so I don't I don't necessarily think that yeah, you want some people that call timeout. Okay, you can call timeout but now you give the other team opportunity to self esteem. So if I promise up until you come down to your file before guy gets into the act of shooting Mean there are a bunch of things. You can talk about that. You can't talk about on the flyer. So that's a good point because you if you're Brad Stevens, I'm telling my guys to foul. They needed three follow. Yeah, but they they going to do that. They did not going to do that because they didn't have that opportunity to think about it. They just play what time on the situation you have more time to think about. Absolutely so that maybe it's why Nick nurse doesn't call a time-out init work off. All you were trying to do is get a decent. Look at it three point shot got a decent Loop. Don't miss don't miss out on this one. It's your chance. You know, Cedric Maxwell says go down absolutely had to betonline.ag today and take advantage of all the great signup bonuses betonline.ag your online sportsbooks experts and it now I don't know man. just feel like when it comes down like you say like when it comes out and accessing those late-game situations, I'm taking Brad Stevens over over Nick nurse all day them, but when Nick nurse but some guy told me later on or off. Yeah, some guy told me the other day on the radio from Toronto said Nick nurses by the arrestee was a give him a clinic in coaching. Okay. Oh, I thought that goes but this is my thing with him. This beef with Nick you you played out that situation, right? It didn't pan out obviously depend on welfare. But you know, you played that card whatever it is what it is right off of 20 minutes later. So it was a microphone in your face and you're gonna complain about oh Jason Tatum got their free throw line too many times all the favors. I mean, excuse me, all the referees gave him that one come on and while you're trying to put up there and you're trying to put something in somebody's you're trying to put some because if it's not working you're down to well, you're trying to put your grabbing it whatever you can grab that actually the course of the year. You're trying that your job. Well, you're grabbing it what you can grab it. See I can really hasn't been that guy you know that said, oh my God, there's no way to stop. I'll come David Jaylen Brown has done a nice job. I'm just I sewing being one off. Woman with G acha you gotta yeah, and they haven't really had to double-team. That's true. So, you know what Jaylen brown hair but his defense has been underrated. How about the time that Jaylen Brown? I mean you're talking about quickness thought he ripped off calorie calories was dribbling and it was like stripping. Well, yeah look like look like brown was in The Matrix the way he went across and grabbed the basketball game. Carolina was sent he was going back the other way know when the ball on the floor you you ain't got it no more. I looked at him. Where did it go with so long? I mean, it's been it's been eye-opening to see some of the some of the situations and even now down that bubble people talk about or you know, what's going on with Milwaukee Milwaukee is trademark what they do. They give up three's what does what does Miami like to do? Oh you take the reason you're walking Milwaukee is given that more FAQ. To anybody else. So Miami's Forte there strip is shoot the three. Yeah. So if you ever team does knocking down threes in a regular area off and you you're struggling right now with, you know, Yiannis and Middleton and you know, they play great against the Celtics but they've had a you know, Jonas has been if they use the series honest is going to be exposed again time to time MVP. I agree with that. Well, the biggest reason why I agree with that is because you you got a 27-point performance out of Chris Middleton office and you couldn't make that a win like that's a big. Well somebody else involved in this. Well, that's what I'm saying. You know his Lopez involved. Where is Lopez build out. 1 game? Okay lower game loading again if off on your scores Seventeen eighteen, you're in trouble. Well, we're we're and that's the thing about picking up your teammates like somebody who's like Kimba. Okay. Kimball didn't was barely scored and Marcus fairly score. Yep. You had somebody else that kind of shoulder the load until those guys got it together and you look at blood. So what's blessed done during the series always been a little banged up. So I don't I don't trust them this man. This is obviously I've never been like like that's always in my thing Milwaukee. Yiannis is going to be honest, but I don't trust your boys like your squad is shaky Milton will give you those 30.93 here and there but need to make sure those are wins you can give those up Jerry has travels big man. I really like Miami and new series. I just like their Focus right now, too. Yeah. I totally agree. I think again to see to me, it's Jimmy Butler Factor. Yeah, because they those dudes right now bam alabado guys, like they're they're taking on that same Persona is Jimmy Butler like, you know jumping off. Yeah. I mean Jimmy brother man. I mean he said about when you asked about guests and family come into the bubble was you said he I'm not bringing anybody man. This is a business trip. Wow. While I said liked that I've always been among. I
Beethoven the Pianist
"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. Once upon a time, keyboard music was written for the Clavichord or Harpsichord. A harpsichord looks a lot like a piano but the sound is produced differently inside a Harpsichord the strings are plucked by little quills sharp pointy spikes usually made from the heart ends of feathers. The only way to get the Harpsichord to play louder is to pluck more than one string at a time. But a piano has little felt covered hammers that hit the strings, which means you can control the dynamics. How loud the sound is by how hard you push the keys. The Piano is named for the fact that you can change the dynamics piano is short for piano, Forte Italian four soft loud. One of the cool things about even that he was living at a time when the piano was literally growing up that's William Black who was head of the Piano Department at the University of Cincinnati College, Conservatory of Music according to him. When Beethoven started writing for the piano, it only had forty eight keys. But by the end of Beethoven's life, it was much closer to today's piano, which has eighty eight keys. So over the course of his thirty or forty years of writing, he was watching this instrument grow both in power and in range. Sort of like a apparent watching a child grow from a baby to a an adolescent and finally to an adult in the thirty two sonatas big solo pieces that Beethoven wrote for the piano. You can hear him demonstrating some of the great things his new instrument could. William Black said in one Sonata, Beethoven starts both hands playing in the lower part of the keyboard and within a very short time the right hand climbs very quickly as if it's in a hurry to the top of the piano when he keeps doing that over and over again, and when he gets to the top of the piano plays very loudly all of a sudden to sort of proclaim that it's gotten to the time. That was one way to show how large the piano keyboard had gotten in another Sonata Beethoven starts both hands in the middle of the piano then has them traveled to opposite ends of the keyboard before they meet back up again in the middle. Or even has the top and bottom parts of the keyboard hold a conversation in this sonata it almost sounds like a grandfather talking to his grandchild. One of the great improvements to the piano in Beethoven's Day, was the pedal. Early Pianos had lever near your knee, which was pretty awkward to use on Beethoven's piano pedals had been moved to where they are today near the ground and you operated them with your feet. pedals change the quality of the sound when you hit a key on the piano hammers, strike the strings and the sound starts. When you let go of the key things called dampers come down onto the strings to stop the sound. William. Black, said Beethoven loved the new and improved damper pedal which stopped the dampers from stopping the sound so that it kept on going and going. So here was a a brand new sort of hazy foggy misty type of sound that he was introducing to to music that this pedal would make possible on the piano listen closely and you can hear how the melody gets slightly blurred. That's from the tempests Nada a piece Beethoven named for Shakespeare's play the tempest which Beethoven. said. Him To write that Sonata before that, you heard part of the pathetic. Sonata name that Beethoven also came up with and the Moonlight Sonata a name that was not Beethoven's idea moonlight was attached to that Sonata by publisher who knew he could make more money selling a piece with a catchy title.
Marlene Forte On Marvel's Runaways
"A longtime guest on my show has been Marlene Forte. Ge had a role in runaways as a pistol packed in Mama. I loved the Gun I understand.

Bitcoin and long might continue as long as we get some little cradle setting up in there anyway wrought. Now what am I waiting for this week if tried? I'd love to say bitcoin pulling to look anywhere around. Eight thousand would be ideal. A little bullish can off of Thousand would be my cradle tried and that would be absolutely spot on of course those of you who have not gone ahead and learned that strategy will then.

Kristen Roupenian Reads Shirley Jackson
"Kristen a so you knew when we first talked about doing the podcast that you wanted to read a story by Shirley Jackson. Why was that mean? Shirley Jackson is an has been for years. One of my absolutely favorite writers came into my mind as soon as you asked and I also knew that she published a lot in the New Yorker and that there was a wider range of stories there then maybe people would not I and so. I just wish sure that the chance to diamonds the archive and find a story by her. That would be wonderful and all the ways. She's always wonderful. But maybe a little bit unexpected right. Both of my children read the lottery in sixth grade. I'm wondering how you first encountered Shirley Jackson. I was thinking about that and in fact the somewhat sideways way that I read a story by her when I was very young. Probably eight or nine In it wasn't it wasn't fiction. It wasn't excerpt from life among the savages in a humor collection that I just had bookshelf Story About One of her children who comes home from school with the story about a very bad misbehaving child in the class who spoiler alert turns out to be imaginary and then I got older into high school. Later Collagen Reggie Jackson. It took a long time before I put together that that story that I had read many many times when I was a kid also was actually also by a this woman who's Adult horror. I really love right and we do. Kind of think of Shirley Jackson as as a writer of horror mystery stories This particular story afternoon in linen. Do you think it falls into that category. I do although not on the surface right anything. It's unsettling and maybe once we get into it. I can tell you the exact word that I think makes it a horror story but like everything that she writes. I think it's very funny and it's also very scary And I think this one in particular kind of the more you look at it. The scarier becomes an horror. Something that you're interested in in in your own work. Yeah absolutely And also that line between the scary and the funny the kind of I would say sort of discomfort that surrounds writing about dark or Tabu or unsettling subjects I love exploring not sort of my favorite And interestingly the story like the nonfiction when he brought up it it explores Darkness through the eyes of children. Exactly I think that's probably a big part of why it resonated with me because it hearkens back to that first day of read by her. Yeah we'll we'll talk some more after the story and now here's Kristen. Re Pension reading afternoon in linen by Shirley Jackson afternoon in linen long cool room comfortably furnished and happily-placed with hydrangea bushes outside the large windows on their pleasant shadows on the floor. Everyone in it was wearing linen. The little girl and the pink linen dress with a wide Blue Belt Mrs Cater Anna Brown linen suit and Galileo linen hat. Mrs Lennon. Who was the little girl's grandmother in a white linen dress and Mrs Caters Little Howard in a blue linen shirt and shorts like an alice through the looking glass? The little girl thought looking at her grandmother like gentlemen all dressed in white paper. I`Ma Gentlemen all dressed in pink paper. She thought although Mrs Lenin and Mrs Cater lived on the same block each other every day. This was a formal Paul and so they were drinking tea. Howard sitting at the piano at one end of the long room in front of the biggest window. He was playing humor. Ask In careful unhurried tempo. I played that last year. The little girl thought it's g Mrs Lennon Mrs Cater were still holding their teacups listening to Howard looking at him and now and then looking at each other and smiling. I still play that if I wanted to. The little girl thought when Howard had finished playing humor ask. He slid off the piano bench and came over and gravely sat down beside the little girl waiting for his mother to tell him whether to play again or not. He's bigger than I am. She thought but I'm older. I'm ten if they asked me to play the piano for them. Now I'll say no. I think you play very nicely. Howard the little girl's grandmother said there were a few moments of leaden silence. Then Mrs Cater said Howard. Mrs Lennon's spoke to you Howard murmured and looked at his hands on his knees. I think he's coming along very well. Mrs Cater said to Mrs Lennon. He doesn't like to practice but I think he's coming along. Well Harry loves to practice. The little girl's grandmother said she sits at the piano for hours making little tunes and singing. She probably has a real talent for music. Mrs Cater said I often wonder whether Howard is getting as much out of his music as he should? Harriet Mrs Lennon said to the little girl. Won't you play for Mrs Cater? Pre One of your own little tunes. I don't know any the little girl said. Of course you do hear her. Grandmother said I'd like very much to hear a tune. You made up yourself. Harriet Mrs Cater said. I don't know any the little girl said Mrs Lennon looked at Mrs Cater and shrugged. Mrs Cater nodded mouthing By and turn to look proudly at Howard. The little girl's grandmother set her lips firmly in a tight sweet smile. Harriet dear. She said even if we don't want to play our little tunes I think we ought to tell Mrs Cater that music is not our forte. I think we ought to show her a really fine achievements in another line. Harriet she continued. Turning to Mississauga has written some poems. I'm going to ask her to recite them to you because I feel even though I may be prejudiced. She laughed modestly even though I probably am prejudiced that they show real merit well. For Heaven's sake Mrs. Gator said. She looked at Harriet pleased. Why dear I didn't know you could do anything like that. I'd really love to hear them. Recite one of your poems from Mrs Cater. Harriet the little girl looked at her grandmother at the sweet smile and it misses cater leaning forward at Howard sitting with his mouth open and a great delight growing in his eyes. Don't know any. She said Harriet. Her Grandmother said even. If you don't remember any of your poems you have some written down. I'm sure Mrs Cater will mind if you read them to her the huge merriment that had been gradually taking hold of Howard suddenly overwhelmed him poems. He said doubling up with laughter on the couch. Harriet writes poems. He'll tell all the kids on the block. The little girl thought I do believe Howard's Jealous Mrs Cater said. Aw Howard said I would write a poem that you can make me. Write a poem if you tried.

Gil Beyda (Comcast Ventures) - Always taking risks
"Hello and welcome. I'm Alex Nick and this is moving up a podcast about secrets to success. Struggles along the way and life in general in the pot Gill Beta from comcast ventures on the pod Gill shares what. He thinks the key to all his successes and then we go deep on his pretty awesome journey. Let's get into it Gil. Thanks so much for being on the Alex. Thanks invited me. Looks like we're GonNa have a good time today. Yeah I mean we've already been bantering going back and forth here. It's always like we have such a conversation. I'm like oh now I don't see anything more. Let me let me hit the red button. I wrote to say oh like we said before. And that's usually how it goes. The listeners. Love that so comcast ventures genesis ventures. We'll get into all your venture capital stuff. You got going on today. But like when I ever venture capitalist I haven't met with one and yet that said Oh I knew I wanted to be a VC. When I was a kid do you is I did not I have a technical background so I love Computers Program Computers Earth Way back in high school and college? I studied computer science and Decided that I wanted to program computers and some of the first ten years of my career was all about Being software engineer for a companies large and small I helped develop l. up a part of the UNIX operating system. So something you know you know really down and dirty and then also Develop applications locations financial branch automation. Applications did did the full stack Then I founded my first company which was an ad Tech Company Company and I was the founder CTO Then that company exited founded another company and then after that second company I had an opportunity to go into venture so it was a series of accidents decisions But I've been in venture for eleven years now and and having a great time so let's let's stay in the early days for a few questions at least where. What is this like equation? Technology this entrepreneurship side of you'd that come from your parents your parents entrepreneurs like do you want to work for a big company yourself like what. What is that inside of you? That kind of pushed you that way. My parents were the consummate entrepreneurs alcohol they neither of them had a college legit education. I'm not even sure whether they graduate high school But a so. They started number of businesses in the in the clothing industry Where they would sell clothing They had stores and all and I worked in those stores and saw a You know at age of Eight nine ten eleven working in the store selling women's clothing and They were very entrepreneurial. They grew their business from from one store to many stores And so was always in my blood and all during in high school and College I was starting a bunch of businesses and of course malt. Most of them failed But was always thinking about it about problems that need to be solved about opportunities markets And you know I remember back in my early days. I I used to keep a list of of ideas of companies that I would start at which I which I advise every entrepreneur to do is just can't keep a running list of of ideas and keep right reprioritising them which ones you think are less possible now or more possible. which ones are you more more or less excited about And funny A while back I. I look back at that list. And this list was from from the eighties and Their ideas on it. I actually think are still good ideas today and I challenge some of viewer. Your listeners may be to To do one of these businesses. A one of them was. I don't even was possible. But it's popcorn that POPs in the shape of an animal so like animal crackers for popcorn now so the margins on popcorn or probably nickel Lord. I but wouldn't you pay extra if the popcorn was in the shape of a zebra elephant or a lion or something that was one of my early ones. Some of them are crazy. Some of them not not so crazy and all But I always knew that I was going to to start a business and So I was just waiting for the right idea. I mean I love hearing about this because speaking of business side ideas starting businesses and all requires practice. It's not like you just have some light bulb moment and it's like i. I didn't think any businesses knife out of my very first one and this is going to be the one I'm GonNa go do and it's like it's a muscle that requires like use use. Yeah I I it you put it perfectly Alex that you have to be practicing you have to be an entrepreneur is not just somebody who starts a company it is somebody who is constantly continuously in that process of starting a company and then one of them actually sticks and you end up doing that for many years. It's also so feeling pain points and maybe maybe it's easier to start off if you don't have the list you've never thought of a business. Just to think of problems takes a long time to drives the airport or wait in line at security or whatever it is right down problems on and you can try to think of business solutions to those problems will. Maybe some. Don't have a solution. Maybe maybe some do I think it's a AH. There's a parallel though an opposite universes between entrepreneur and a comedian a comedian goes through life. Making all these observations of of Oh like a while waiting at the airport or whatever and they turned it into a joke or life. Experience and an entrepreneur makes those same mob's rations but instead of trying to make it funny. They actually try to solve that problem. I like that a lot of great one. Okay so you're this entrepreneurial kid growing up starting stuff left and right you go to college rate. Yes where do you go to college. Cal State Northridge California. My Business Partners to oh great from L. A.. I am from La and the clothing store was in La yes what part of La The clothing store was actually in Inglewood. we lived in La Proper and then eventually moved to Beverly Hills. Oh Great We'll talk about that later. Okay so so you you you gotta see sign and and when you're there you're still you do still have this like entrepreneurial passion because I was like you I was starting businesses left and right growing up and then I went to school and I I said I went to Pennsylvania and now it's like everyone's like I want to be an investment banker an accountant or a consultant on my. Oh there's like these prestigious jobs that society is telling me that I should go get I mean that was my path but in hindsight I was like wash continued starting businesses and your own the biggest dirt farm and by now or something but You get caught up kind of like what all your friends are doing. Did that happen to you. I was don't let any of my kids here this but I was not focussed on school at all. School to me was something that I knew I had to do that. I knew would look good on my resume But it's unless it was fun and interesting. I wasn't super engaged so during high school where I founded and one of my first companies called Mind Games which was A video game for the original Apple Computer so I would spend Days and nights and programming The game and maybe showed up for class maybe didn't and so in high school. My grades were marginal may be. I had a C. or a C. plus average I think in college. Maybe I opt it to A. B. or B. minus But I knew that the grades that was not going to be my taken And I have a lot of respect for those folks who are focused on maximizing their the university experience and I think that's that's super important for me adjust didn't click and so even during high school and and in College I was I was starting companies and probably migraine sufferers. It's I mean I think it's a good testimony so you were able to realize that school is not what I want to be focusing on I want to be focusing these other things because like I kind of feel like I was similar to you. I didn't school but did it anyway because they gave all pressure's it's like oh you need to do this and I should have just been. I mean not should've aminals my path until sure so I'm actually kind of envious of you that you had that south awareness to say. Yeah this is not not really focusing. Nobody has ever asked me what my GPA was not unless your like in the top the commodity And nobody asks you what an anybody's I volunteered it. Because I'm mullahs proud that I actually you know did not get as and BS that. I'm actually a C.. Student and was able to do quite well Um mm-hmm and so for all those people out there who maybe are focused on other things or school isn't their Forte They're still lots of opportunity out for those people

that I wrote this poem for my girlfriend keep playing that and so- slashes the plan the song an actual reading this poem and it's like this is it this this is the song like I'm just he was just sitting in the room and it was sweet child of mine that's how that's how the song get started that's great so slashes sitting here just playing this on his guitar and then inside of the bridge of the song he doesn't know where to go with the song he doesn't have it written because back then they were just GonNa Studio and get totally wasted in and record so if you remember the bridge the song he starts going where do we go now where do we go so he's leaving he literally didn't know where to go with the songs crazy it's awesome and so how how I bring this up start with you is you know that's an interesting way to kind of get into a song ever sit in a room at seventy sticking around with something and you go well I really wasn't planning to go here but I have something that could work I have This page after page after page after page of titles and ideas yeah That I have always kept I started keeping it in college and so typically when I walk into a room comedy starts doing that I don't say anything I just kind of opened my file and starts I call him a book of spells because we call it that once in a in in a group setting she's like oh he just goes through his book of spells so I actually titled on on my desktop my little books spells or click on that started kind of going through stuff almost you know most of it just doesn't work for every piece of music obviously you just can sit you kind of go through you can go through and go through and say finally go let me that and I start throwing things into the room that there's that point at the beginning of every writing appointment where as far as lyrical ideas you're either going to be the absolute hero you're gonNA look like a Moron I've kind of always prided myself on being fearless when it comes to throwing ideas in the room and just kind of going well I took all that time to come up with them let's see if they're any good there's only one way to find out can you us song where you're going through the book of spells and you're like this might actually be something with what you're doing now you mean with Mute where the music was already going you're flipping through and you you go well I could actually attach this we could go somewhere with it and it turned out to be something you know aw man sorry like running through songs in brain yeah run through typically Some it detracts and things most of the time I come in with like pieces of music fully at least something somewhat realized or at least enough of a concept the trying to match it to somebody that's something already going isn't perfect so even then a lot of times the musical change ever so slightly it's not usually an exact match I don't have a slash story do you ever wish I did because what I find when you get into a room you say you go in us if I'm writing something comedy wise and someone comes in you don't know people it's your little timid at first and not so much because is of your ideas but because you don't everyone's sensibilities writer first date oh you dance yeah you're kind of all right we'll and I've found that when someone comes in and they're totally fearless it actually relaxes the whole room right like it's actually a nice start to the whole because you're like Oh okay if they're going to be an idiot and idiot and maybe isn't the word but it was the best yeah and I feel at times if I do that it actually makes the room a more productive room if I just go out and do the most bonehead things sometimes on purpose uh-huh it makes the room better because everybody goes oh why was an idiot I won't be near as big a minute let me start suggesting my ideas and that's actually the whole point of of the reason I do it don't often assume that the ideas that I'm gonNA start throwing out our what we're going to work on and I don't really care part of it is just getting any kind momentum going and in getting the comfort zone opened up because once somebody starts talking starts saying hey what about this what about this what about this everybody else feels a little more open to going through their own stuff especially if you've never worked together that first time where it's like we're saying it's a dance and kind of your everybody's trying to figure out their role where they fit in what they're supposed to be doing I just I I love the visit and I love the hang and all that comes beforehand it's great to catch up and all that but at some point something's got to happen and there's no reason for us all to be hanging out so that's my way of being like all right let's get some work done come on a resume you just a little bit and we'll go into some stories here but fourteen number ones just a few of them Luke Bryan most people are good I bring that up because I was a three week number one a rarity almost a Dodo bird of country music songs those days yeah I would say the white tiger now dodo birds extinct maybe the white tiger of country music three week number one yeah they're getting more and more it seems like I was asked on the red carpet last week at cmt they said hey what what was your song of two thousand nineteen and not that I would listen to it the time alone but like I said well my song I think that was the most important to the format and that people have really gravitated to because of the message was those people are good and that's what came to my mind that was my visceral emotional reaction to what was this song of two thousand nineteen that's awesome so congratulations one on three week number one also a lot of people went and it's nice to just like like have that song I needed that Song I did most of the time when when you meet people socially and they ask you they find that your rent is so what are you right you know obviously they mean rock pop country whatever and I smile on say I write fiction 'cause that's kind of what I do I sit around and just generally make up stories and things in that particular case that was written in two thousand sixteen during the presidential election or the build up to the election between that in some of the other things we're also going on in the world at the time I was really kinda depressed I mean just watching some things and kind of went you know what it's not all bad it's really not all bad and I I showed up my studio that day I was writing with Ed Hill and David Frazier who I've written it's close to twenty years and luckily at we again we know each other so well that I kind of know where they are in their lives as well and it just it was the right right idea for the right group of people and I desperately needed that song I still find that when sit around play that song when performing it's it's still takes me back to that place that I desperately need to be these days talk me through the life of after you wrote the song because we know the end product we've seen the manufacturing of a three week number one it's been through we've seen it then great but ride it and that's a it's been a couple of years now a few years now actually yeah so what happens right after you write the song do you feel like it could be something and where does go and it just kind of talk me through that so we we wrote the song I was the only one I just sat and play guitar while you're writing I was the only one plane during the writing and then when the other guys left I stayed right there in my studio and built up the record from scratch and it sounds almost identical you ended up hearing on the Luke record did they use any of the now of your track now they didn't use much wreck I think they even might change the key and they cut with a live band and was playing individual bits and pieces and Jeff didn't need my tracks a pretty obviously and finished it up I think got I spent the rest of that day part of the next day finishing up the demo turned into the publisher that is usually for me where my contact with the song essentially ends you spent a lot of time with it did you feel you because you spent almost two days did you feel like it was a two day worthy song or is that just normal process for anything that you've written if I'm the one doing the demo it takes me wrong I'm just not fast I'm I'm a slow build when it comes to to building out a demo and even beyond that typically I'm not great at them it's not really my forte I'll do them is when I'm the one that ends up being the person in the room that has that skill set but I prefer having a Jesse Frazier I've been writing one hundred hundred twenty songs year professionally for the last twenty five years
