"That you guys on. Your website should mentioned this. you're talking about a foreign president trump. but this bipartisan report about the january. Sixth thing not this special commission but this report that they've been working on from again five partners I think so. I'd have to senate committees. yeah. I'm not sure what to community said work but in any case reason i mentioned it is They talked about some some intelligence failures but they also it says the report really didn't talk about trump's roll and i thought that was odd because it was bipartisan. So i guess once again. It's another indication of the foreign presidents in san with gop. Yeah yeah. I think you re you can read this report and this again defense you. You have a glass half empty glass half full in the sense that there are some very damning details about the intelligence failures That you know different agencies new information that he didn't share it very similar pre-nine eleven right. There were a lot of information but it was siloed in different places and it wasn't shared or didn't get up the chain of command to the right person or somebody in a position of authority just played it down or shrugged it off. So there's a lot of damning information as they reform the capitol police try to deal with the management. It wasn't just the individuals but the structure sometimes tied their hands. How to deal with this as they deal with those that. This report is very very helpful laying out some of the problem. Structural problems and personnel problems and decisions wrong decisions and sharing information but it doesn't even use the term insurrection. Because the republicans would not agree to the reporter fees that terms it mentions that donald trump gave a speech to a rally. It does not say he lied in. That speech doesn't fact. Check that speak and say that he said things that we're simply not true in that speech because for them to say that the republicans would not cooperate so they instead just said if you want to read the speech in the appendix to the report so it ducks a lot of the big questions and it glosses over some truth and so you could make the case that you know. Why do we have the united states. Congress making extreme case. But if they if the grownups can't go into a room and say we need to make points here. We all need to agree on a few points here. Democrats republicans male female from the west coast east coast somewhere in between we need to have some basic common understanding acceptance of the facts. Here jim this gets us back to the obama conversation. All of these things are connected. Just these refusal to address to have a common set of truth over then which we fight like cats and dogs. Let's have some basic common truths it seems to me. John is rudy. giuliani hot. people probably know that. There's this new audio of this phone call in may two years ago which you can hear him.

You're sitting in the jeep and that's also a shooter right that to get if i if memory serves not the ridicule situation in this game on is so rough because it's really low and then you slightly tap into this on the far left out of the screen. There are so many things i did not enjoy. I first few minutes. I was saying onstream as i played it. This is not so bad. This is you know. Pre rendered graphics mortal kombat he kind of talking country. Okay i can get into that a lot of mode seven seven yeah pilot wings bring it come on zero x great and then then the game play it happened like actually playing a game and yet about four minutes and i realized oh. I don't know how to beat this boss. Which is a helicopter i. I don't know what to shoot. And so i asked my kaffir eight minutes while i was shooting it. Am i missing something. I what am i missing and there was one small gray thing underneath the helicopter that i had to activate by hitting eight. What was happening and later on in the game. I will get to it but yeah i was not able to actually was able to lose this game with imf seemingly infinite continues. I lost. i gave him over. It's not quite. I mean it seemingly infant but it's quite enough you get twenty five lives which seems like king's bounty in super nintendo terms but but it's just also the difficulty is i mean it's so the may you hit on the main thing. It's so hard to target things because it's got like a like just a little bit. Like accelerates too quickly so you start at moving and then it just. It's on the other side of the screen. It's so hard to target anything precisely and then also. Some of the waves of enemies are just interminable. Like it's just like. I literally have to kill like four hundred of the same yellow ninja with a machine gun like it's unbelievable. The body count. i'm here and it just. I guess it's probably just to extend the gameplay to justify the cost of the cartridge but it's so it gets so fucking boring and then you're just turning through lives as a result. If you don't hit a certain thing in the right corner of the screen you get that infinite thing sort of to me. It reminded me a teeny bit of ninja guide and although those respond but it was like. When is gonna end if i is it. Yeah my infinitely responding accidentally. Yeah didn't make any sense. Yeah i i can't imagine so. Can you imagine standing at this machine for forty minutes in an arcade. After i played it for a while and saturdays okay. I'm i'm never going to get to the end of this fucking game even uneasy mode because like i can't use the gun. Which is the point of the game. So i i also watched a playthrough and the playthrough which is a perfect play. It's not like a speed run but it's a perfect way through is forty forty minutes long from start to finish which means that you would have to be holding that filthy greasy gun a and dumping and quarters for forty minutes somewhere like who who also gets to a movie early enough to be able to play this game in the lobby for forty minutes right missile area and it seemed like a precursor to meet of zombie game. Play like oh it's fun to shoot but as you mentioned it's not fun without like right annoying. Yeah yeah there's also the the there's another element this game. That actually do like which is that. You have a special attack. Which on the super nintendo's with a shoulder buttoned where you'll shoot a cd. And i can't tell if the cd's do more damage than regular gones. It seems like maybe but it's not quite like there's so little user feedback but it is the kind of thing is just like. Oh this is kind of gloriously stupid that this is the aerosmith game. Got a gun. That shoots cds. I kind of wish there was more of that. I of wish there was more just like leaning into rock and roll stupidity as opposed to some of the generic. Just sort of you know. Like i mentioned ninja enemies that you're fighting throughout so much of the game. Well just like they say music the weapon. That's the whole subtitle. But it's your shooting a gun. That i i want to say that i blakely.

"forty minutes" Discussed on The Pig Wrestlers
"So what ways do you use to manage your time other than kind of writing down the things at the beginning of the day and we're having routine not doing something for more than forty minutes. A really is the most valuable thing that brought to my structure. Day is if i could serve many things to do list and if you spend a few hours on one thing the efficacy of that one thing just isn't there and so was cooking at thomas in my office. And so you said it. Forty minutes and it's gonna shrill rate it completely drops and you know you took away what you can. You'll come back to it and just get onto the next thing far enough now. That's very very manages. Approach to doing things right. So if you're if you're not doing Long secretive talks whether it be coding or designing or writing. That's fine if you are great essay by poke graham token about the different structures of time if you are doing something that requires that sort of crate. It's thought whether it's the problem solving of an engineer or the the creativity of doncaster. A writer you don't need directions right because your your your so deep in the flow interrupt in that flow is counterproductive. Yes i think there are. There are certain things that require a degree of concentration but not necessarily creativity. That are quite easy for me at least to get into flow on so if we kind of just getting into the rhythm of doing something then you must carry on and get on with it and then with the creative stuff if you can find the flow when you're doing something creative. It's amazing because stuff happens the problem i have is. I'm sure anyone else is that it's much harder to find the flow. When you're trying to write you can't force it and kind of getting frustrated and not being able to get annoyed about the fact you're not in flow doesn't help get you into flow either..

"Tell me if this is true. Your parents met in a way that kind of foreshadowed your future in a little bit like they didn't mean a bar that didn't mean party is actually true that they met at a library. Of course it's a. I've had my own moments with that story. But it's the absolute truth. My mother was going to interview at. What was the large libraries in sta cultural center and my father was working at a desk. Saugus he Slip some gaming but yet that's that's where they met and then my mother was working actually on the the floor where the music was where all the film were. The vinyls that was this is not harold washington library This is before perr washes number and They met their first date was purple. Rain of the movie yet differs date was to go see preparation. The movie that is not suspicious. I eight yeah yeah. My dad loved france and it was really interesting. Because when i was putting out kinsey a memoir that is very reminiscent to me in a lot of ways of the story of purple rain Imprint the first place that i was asked to come pretty much to drop. The album actually was to first avenue for sold out show. And that's where my father lives now. My father has lived in minnesota for longer than twenty years. Twenty five thirty years probably which is why. This album is a purple winds wire at the vinyl herbal. But it was the first show that i was asked to come in do at prince's club where my father would walk at c be reforming in his hometown. Right before the shutdown so was the first and last show that i got to perform before we before the pandemic times matt. What what was it like for you. It was magical. It was so so amazing. I felt like it's called me. They're a felt like prince called me. You know called me to be there not knowing that things would shut down in a couple of weeks after that. But i think that it's sustained me in a way. I really miss performing and to be sold out show. I was called by desa so Of doom tree who lives in minnesota's a artist and author our own. Right of course asked me to come an open for her. So i do the sold out show and it was just one of the most magical experiences that i've had as far The reception was so so incredible and You know the people of minnesota really made me feel like a star that day in so it was just a lot of moments that were more magical more synchronised than even you know just the forty minutes i was on stage. It was just a whole magical experience that it's sort of like everything was leading up to that moment. Have you talked to your dad about that. His show yeah. It was so funny. My dad is very mysterious guy so when he came i didn't see him. He called me till we. It was a great show. And all that but i think just the way my mind works in the art. That was moving through in the art. That i was making and where i was in that space. I can't lie that i was like. I don't even know if he came. I don't even know if he was even actually here and van but me and my dad had this really interesting connection. I mean you have that connection with your parents. You have the connection with people that brought you into the world doesn't have to be so literal or on the phone or shortly proof or whatever life. I have that tie with my parents. My parents no when. I'm going through something whether i talked to them or not. Like they'll feel it from across town or prostate or cross country in so Randomly two or three weeks later. He sends me a video of me like on my last song. You know rocking the stage of okay. Right he was legit there. that's awesome. yeah. I mean as bad i think You know amazon. There's that connection. There's that sort of thing which. I'm fairly practical person. But there's also certain things like that that i just believe in you just feel something doesn't matter where you are I know you're also really close with grandma coming up as well right. Oh yeah my best details. Tell me more better ellen thompson. She was born in nineteen forty three in mississippi. And i love to speak her name. She was one of the first people that clap from me in made a really big deal out of me knowing how to read on my seventh birthday. She made me de. Protagonist of this book was a story of dr martin luther king junior. It should be around here somewhere. But it's right there so in this in this book that my grandmother gave me my tribute to martin luther king. Junior i am the protagonists of this book. And i'm writing a paper on martin luther king junior at tell the story of his life. But i'm you know in the beginning saying oh telling my cousins rookie creek turtle i have to write this paper on martin luther king junior Go into the story by the end of the story. I've told this whole thing. I turned it in. I get a on the paper. That is the book right. So not only. Did my grandmother clap for me. When she sees me reading. And saying that. I you know had a love. For words you should go to market a garden classes with me and sit in a walk me home and then when i began talking she would call me radio or lawnmower. She said because. I've talked so much if you call me that. And that was a foreshadowing in itself. Right i mean of me getting a on the paper. Maybe the paper was the black album. Right me. Being able to use my words for the upliftment of myself in marginalized communities in it was really just kind of like thinking about this is a power device and words in education literature a are powered by
Arkansas Head Coach, Eric Musselman, Discusses His Team's Success This Year
"Know there's a game coming up tomorrow but if we could just get some final thoughts on north we're violating the twenty four hour rule or not. But how does it feel to. I mean your fans are buzzing right. Now they've been excited all year but that really brought it home the other night. I mean the thing that that we're probably the most proud of paul is just the fact you know we got thumped tuscaloosa and we got beat before that at lsu When we were in bad rooch pretty pretty bad too and and We were able to bounce back between those two games. We had a really physical practice with weighted vests. And and you know. I'm not sure we had enough legs To play the fast place style of play that that obama plays and coach you know gets his guys really get out and run and and You know looking back. We knew that that practice would you know would would maybe set us back slightly but we're trying to think long term. We had a great environment. I mean we. You know i understand. It's a pandemic but we had a really good student section. Our crowd was good. There's there's there's been a lot of excitement over the last few weeks with the way that the team is played and and it was a big game. Th you know anytime you get a top ten cheap You know and you can you can you number one. You don't get a lot of opportunities to play top ten teams then when you do and you're able to to get a win. It is a big deal for the fans at former players boosters and and for the student athletes to reward them for for a lot of hard work but we have incredible respect coach oats and his team and we know that you know they're one of the top teams in the entire country so it was a big win. But you're right you gotta turn the page. And that's part of your team is having maturity when you do win a big game two to turn the page and get ready for your next game. I mean you're now final two days of february and and certainly you're going to be going through this now. You're going to be going through this in the sec tournament and ultimately in the nc double a. tournament for for a program that has not won a lot of big games lately. How drill that into their their minds. That this was fantastic. But it doesn't mean anything tomorrow. I mean i think you know all you can do. Really paul's just continue to talk. educate You know. I told him today that you know. I'm a lot older than them. I'm getting getting towards being an old man. And and sometimes you gotta listen to your elders a little bit on on some of these things that you talk about that you know the game you know tomorrow when we play l. s. u. the prior game against lsu doesn't matter and our pr- prior win against alabama doesn't matter there's forty minutes you've got to go out you got to be focused and You know it's. I think that that just kind of how it is and and You know the good thing is having gone through it nevada. You know none of those guys that we had there had really been through it either But i think the big thing is just understanding that each day. You've got to continue to get better. I mean even you know with with with three games to go now. We're talking about how we can get better. We're talking about improving our practice habits. We we do a to onto pick and roll defensive drill today that i'm sure they weren't really excited about doing a two onto pick and roll drill that might be. You would consider a training camp drill but we want to get better and anybody that aspires to play beyond college. Basketball should should want to become a better pick and roll defensive player so hopefully you know you can get your guys excited to understand that you know you're not just doing it for the lead these last three games and then tournament situations you're doing it for the longevity of your career as

"It's time for another installment of on it. Store live here on scuba shack radio. And this time we're going back to season one episode two titled flooded mine flooded mine the premiered on january eleventh nineteen fifty eight. The show opens up with mike scuba diving. And there's a woman who is free diving with them. They're searching for a guitarfish from marineland of the pacific and that's when they encounter a c line who might calls a natural clown. He then says that he will be faced with a very different situation. Fifteen hundred miles inland where he's been called to investigate a mine. Explosion that has flooded the tunnels in the next scene. Mike is at the mine and he's talking to the head of the mind. Mr graham mr graham explains that the explosion killed thirty miners and he needs mike to determine the extent of the flooding. Mike tells mr graham that he can go thousand yards into the tunnel with his cylinder. Graham asks him what it's going to cost. Mike says we'll talk about that later. Now mr graham calls in bill henderson. Who's going to help mike. Bill tells graham that he sorry about his boy who was killed in an explosion. The scene shifts to mike being lowered into the mine in his full scuba gear with miner's helmet on he says he's been all seven seas on six continents but has never been in a mind before and never wants to be in want again as bill and mike or making their way through the mine. Bill tells mike not to touch anything. It's a tight squeeze and mike accidentally kicks a beam. That causes a bit of a cave-in. Well they finally make it to the water mike. Mike looks at his watch. And it says three twenty and he tells bill that he has forty minutes of air. Bill asks mike. What can you do if he doesn't make it back in time to which mike replies. Nothing bill tells mike. He's got a dangerous job now. Under the murky water. Mike is feeling his way along slowly carefully when he hears some noises. He doesn't know exactly what what they are but he sees a light at the surface and when he surfaces up he discovers to miners trapped in an air pocket barely breathing. Mike shoves the regulator in their mouth and smacks them starts yelling at them to breathe now the dilemma. How to get them out. There's no time to go back for another long. He can only take one out but who they draw. Rocks smallest rock stays the guy. Mike is taking out. Can't swim and he needs wait. So they load his pants with rocks mic shows. Them how to buddy breathe gives him as masks and off they go but not for long. The minor panics. Takes mike's knife and starts to fight with them. Mike drops might drops his light and gets to panic. Diver back to the air pocket. Mike goes back down to get his late and then he comes up and tells the minor to get some rocks. He's taken him out. This time keeps his mask and things go smoothly. We then see bill looking at his watch. It's four pm. Whereas mike suddenly bill sees the light. And mike comes up with the minor. It's been workman. Mike needs to go back but he doesn't have enough air and there's not enough time to go out in the mind for another tank. What can they do. Just an mike spots a welding torch where there's a torch there's oxygen tank has the same valve as regulator. What luck but mike need some tools to complete the rig now. He needs to go back down underwater To retrieve a toolbox he does and hooks up his regulator and carries the o. Two tank with them as he heads back breathing welding oxygen. Mike reaches the air pocket and finds the second minor limp. But not dead. He gives him the regulator and the minor starts to revive. He tells. Mikey sorry that he was scared. Mike says that's okay. You just didn't have enough oxygen this time. Mike says that things went a lot better than they made it out. We never did get the name of that panic minor nor did we ever find out what might charge mr graham for those of us of a certain age or watch a lot of old time television. You might recognize bill henderson. That's hank patterson who played fragile. Arnold the pigs. Dad on greenacres the episode sort of ended abruptly when when it switches to lloyd bridges on his boat telling us that three fifths of the planet is covered by sea. And how little we know so join us as we go below with si-hun as we've seen in many si-hun adventures. You never know where mike nelson will be going diving next.

The Power of the Praline
"Let's get to question let us for all liens are pralines or pauline's or lines. This is the first question what are they. Oh heck well a as it turns out the word of prowling can refer to a number of types of candies. What the word means in the american south is a soft fudgy type of carmel. Lumped with pieces of pecan and like a melt in your mouth super sweet rich buttery creamy confection with the contrasting crunch and complementary sweet buttery flavor cons so good. Oh my heck it's typically made by cooking a sugar with butter milk or cream or condensed milk. Maybe a little bit of annella and then at chapter have cons. An easter this constantly until it is a thick syrup softball stage for y'all candy makers and then you pour the the mass out onto a tray or a slab cool either in a single sheet to be broken into pieces later or in individual mounds sort of the the size and shape of a cookies when they're done they're dry the touch not sticky until they start to melt which they can like skin temperature You can get variations in there that include like rum for flavoring chocolate pralines peanut butter pralines chewier caramel praline. Pralines encased in hard chocolate sometimes called turtles cetera You can make them with other nuts too. I guess that is something. I've never seen but researching this episode. I have learned. That is definitely a thing. Yeah yeah okay. So in europe we run into some kind of serious linguistic confusion. Because in france from what i understand the word Prowling means whole almonds or other nuts that are cooked in boiling sugar then cooled so that it creates like granulated coding that keeps the almond inside fresh and i think it can also mean That confection crushed into a powder for use in like other candy making or baking. Or what have you here in the states we do call nuts that have been encased in a crunchy dairy sugar coating praline nuts and praline. Pecans are a holiday delicacy in the south. Yes meanwhile back in france. There's a related term of a means groundnuts or possibly praline knots cooked into a soft paste with sugar and chocolate and then coated in a hard chocolate. Shell like a like a bon. Bon yelm right. Meanwhile in belgium the word probably means any confection consisting of a hard chocolate shell encasing a softer filling one of the traditional fillings or perhaps traditional filling being prawning. Y'all it takes me like a really silly amount of time to suss all of this out i. It was like cross-referencing i. There was a lot of translating pages from french with google translate blake. I got very confused for a very hot minutes. Yeah that's one of the funny things about when you do grow up in an area and you don't realize something as regional venture outside of it and you're like wait you call leads. What and way for us. 'cause you just kind of assume the word means this turn out not necessarily yeah Yes so so. That's fun when you're googling it is it is it adds an extra layer of challenge of fun difficulty. A wrinkle an air history perhaps mystery what brolly are really great. Are we talking about well lauren. What about the nutrition. Well there. they're treat. It's you know it's sugar in nuts and fat it treats are nice. Tweets are great Not circling tristesse would imagine. I did find I guess this is a good transition into numbers portion. Because there aren't any numbers on pralines. But i did find one. That really cracked me up. And it was hyper specific to how many germans or eating pralines and how many were having more than one a day. And i just loved that this exists and is obviously not a well. Maybe not obviously but not the feeling we're talking about so i didn't include it but it was very funny to me that like only twenty percent of germans have proud leans more than once a day like a lot to me still. I'm just paraphrasing. Don't don't quote me on that but it was okay. Gave me a chuckle. that study did. Yeah yeah i Right right sussing out the numbers for for what. We are focusing on in this episode. Which is the american. South's version of that. Melty kind of fudge. Like pecan praline situation. Sussing that out from everything else was was was tough numbers size but i will say that at shops in new orleans that still make pralines by hand. I'm just i'm not gonna say consistently. I'm so sorry for anyone who is already being driven completely up the wall by this yeah shops new orleans. Still make them by hand out like for example Lays pralines a batch of two hundred takes about forty minutes to make start to finish and dedicated. Three person team can turn out a thousand a day. Whoa right hoof at the new orleans school of cooking. which does cooking demos and classes. They make thousands a day in overlapping batches and one cook who who mostly does candy making for them By the name of our ruffin told the la times. If i had to keep account on how many i make. I think i'd probably quit
How to Leverage Amazon to Grow Your Business in 2021

Who is the of small business empowerment amazon. The small business powered team is focused on driving. The success of amazon's small business partners and works with teams across amazon deliver programs. Investments that support their growth carries a graduate of the university of florida's levin college of law where she earned a juris doctorate degree shows holds in history of english from covenant. College carry welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me very so i could ask you. How did you end up being a lawyer from studying history and english extensive amounts of reading and writing. The really is i. You know when. I was In actually in high school had an opportunity to participate in a youth leadership program That included a track on the judicial system. And i just kinda got hooked on on everything that was involved in of course. Reading and writing is a big part to sorta leaned into those superpowers. I guess so. How did you pass from being a j. d. lead you to amazon and out small business owners. The phone question I do. I've today describe myself as a recovering lawyer. A my favorite time. Yes you know the thing that was fun for me about practicing law was you. You get to spend all day identifying issues in solving problems and so i really From day one enjoyed solving ambiguous problems. Where you had to figure out the root cause of whatever issue or opportunity was in front of you and then inventor way to the solution and so that took me from practicing law Up through a variety of roles on the business side where i've gotten to solve increasingly problems. focused on solving challenges For usually for others which leads to my my role today which is very good to spend all day everyday focused on helping solve issues challenges and make the world a better place for small businesses. I think a lot of people carry don't realize how many small businesses actually work through the amazon channel. Tell us about that So amazon in the us alone on amazon works with more than two million independent partners. They come in all shapes and sizes celena stores. They operate delivery service businesses. They use tools trim. Aws a build alexa skills. They published books with kindle direct publishing so amazon supporting small medium. Sized businesses is a fundamental part of our work there. It's a core part of what we do everyday. An extension of our customer centric culture. Our success depends on their success and our global head. Carrie i was gonna say in our in our store worldwide. We have over a million independent businesses selling in the account for over half of all products sold. And we've seen their sales continue to outpace our retail so we know that customers value them in this election they bring in an incredible way. The amazing statistic that over half of everything purchased on amazon is sold through independent third parties. Small medium sized businesses. That it's not really amazon. Really is the amazon marketplace right absolutely. Yeah the outlive sewing partners. The independent businesses bring those products role and bringing such a wonderful and diverse array of products across all categories. That customers enjoy now. Even i know most of us were surprised by covid. Nineteen who would know that once in every one hundred years right what happen last year but was my biggest surprise is that when ordered some from amazon. It couldn't get here in two days. I thought would never ever happen. Carry tell us about the challenges. They're really amazon. Face in the small business partners did during the height of the covid nineteen crisis absolutely right kobe. Nineteen created many challenges for small businesses. We you know despite it. We were encouraged to see that sense and through that time. Small companies have continued to grow with amazon. You know twenty twenty the number of us long medium sized businesses that surpassed one million dollars sales grew by more than twenty percents and more than thirty seven hundred surpassed him in sales for the first time. Which is just a really great business milestone for any prisoners owner. I'm those businesses have created an estimated one point one million jobs which is phenomenal. It's such an important part. Is you know what keeps our communities going and so we've seen as customers of increasingly shopping online on the past year. The businesses were using e commerce. House channel have continued to sustain grow. I'm in our commitment to supporting them. And adopting for the future has has never been more steadfast done a number of things both continuing work. We've been doing for years and new things. We did in twenty twenty to continue supporting them through that journey. And i think that's really the key role. The amazon plays a lot of companies have got into e commerce for the first time during covid nineteen and like all right. I'm gonna go set up a store. But they no incomes and i think that is really the key of getting involved in the amazon marketplace. Because you already have so many people looking for products right there absolutely One of my favorite stories. I think one of my favorite projects from twenty twenty was last year redesigned prime date support small businesses and we committed more than one hundred million dollars to help their growth over the shopping event through the holiday season and that included holding our biggest small business promotion. Yeah so during that promotion customers. Purchase dollars and products from participating. Small business selling on amazon. Ten dollars credit to spend on prime day. It's on a two week. Lead up to prime day. Small businesses included in that promotion generated more than nine hundred million dollars. In sales on prime day independent third party sellers had their two biggest as ever surpassing three and a half billion in sales which is nearly sixty percent year over year increase and even more growth than our retail business and then it also came with stories like the story of lia foods actually a seller based north aurora forty minutes outside of chicago and she makes african inspired spices but The fun part about her story. It demonstrates the power of selling on amazon and an event like prime day to find those new customers over to help those new customers find you. She shared that coming out of advent not only has she almost doubled her single day sales but her daily started trending upwards with all that new customer acquisition those stories. We really enjoy seeing so those who've never really men sold their price to amazon. What kind of rain moments are there. And what is it in a cost to market on amazon. Yes so our public schedule. So if you if any seller or someone considering becoming a feller looks online at those public public information fees range from eight to fifteen percent depending on product type and for business selling amazon. Really do that as a marketing cost because of the access to that three hundred million customers that it creates and then beyond the monthly in referral fees. everything's optional so sellers choose. What's right for their business. We offer as i mentioned a variety of services in programs than in its pick. What's right for you right so if you want to lean into advertising their options for you could choose what suits for your business if you want to move away from fulfilling your on products create more bandwidth for yourself to do other things there options to leverage by amazon into leverage the customer service support that comes without. So it's it's very much a choose your own adventure but each business owner can select the right fit for them and what fits their

"forty minutes" Discussed on PT Pintcast - Physical Therapy
"So i was like. This is really cool. Then i realized how behind the times we were because this video is dated from two thousand six. What's the product came out. You know or most product two thousand ten so probably back in like twenty sixteen but it was still like four or five years old. So i We made a video myself and my coworker and we sent it to them. We're like we want to know you guys and actually like we'd love to meet you so we started chatting with them and then they. This is awesome like this wasn't what it was intended to being four am. I said it's really just teaching basic circuit through the state six circuit board. And it helps you learning the understanding of us circuit in Teaches about Conductive electricity and things like that But if it's gaining someone access to something like that's wonderful while the nice thing about it is it's fifty dollars so i was like this is great because often we know with assistive technology or anything in medico world. One you put that in front of it. Yes it's money and then to it's just unfortunately young with insurance companies in its very long drawn out process and so often when i see is like were basically putting child on pause and wait for insurance and so or like sometimes you'll go through the whole process and really like that product doesn't end up being the right one and then you have to wait five years and so and it's a nice lake. It's been nice almost like for that middle ground over. You're trying to figure something out so like for example the how i originally like. I said i started working with it. Was i was working with a child with autism. And he's working on fine motor skills working on attention to be able to sit and participate in motor activities. And i maybe would get like ten seconds out of it. So i had created Adapted paintbrushes and so he was more of the cause and effect play level. So he's about a six month old level and so Basically created paintbrushes in every time. He touched the paintbrush to the paper. It would make sound. He wasn't doing anything with the computer but it was just causing that sound in effect. We got an set for forty minutes and participate in painting and then he had peer interaction and he was imitating some of the lines and it was just awesome to stand so it kind of really opened my eyes of like. What else can i do with this thing. So so for the podcast to me. You won't be able to see the video. Really it's it's a way for you guys to game affi- everyday objects using clips to turn a banana into space bar or several bananas into a virtual keyboard on your computer so it makes noise. There's no coating there's no hardware of there's minimal hardware and there's definitely no software involved for him will game a filed these objects. You can use it with anything on the online. So when i think about this like And i'll give you guys like macaroni. I often will use it with some kids. Like for example that they love thomas the train or they love shark writing the songs you can set it up where like that becomes the The to activate the key actually click the mouse on youtube video. So i'll have kids work on Hitting it and their favorite youtube video on. It's been a life changing thing for me during virtual because i work with ken. Still that are very involved in are using switch access and they're on the computer so allows you to gauge yup. They hit the switch because music came back on. So it's been really nice Like you said it takes everyday objects to like tin foil But that's where. I was like nothing i was really doing with Like with new interventions. I was taking every day. Ot pt related interventions in the basically just game vying. I'm so some examples To include. Like i had seen you know that One of my kiddos was working a ton on weight shifting and we were working on i was coaching with A pt and so. She was often using the rocker board. And you know just a lot of those typical things that you would see in a clinic like both iraq reboard can become a switch and so we just wind it with aluminum safe and it became Grounding in that way and so it's understanding like that the child basically needs to be the earth and then you have to have that understanding of circuits. It is easy product to use. But it's been like a game right therapy sessions I've done anything to work on for. Pt's i've helped create things to work on like single leg standing balance so he worked on Gross motor coordination. We worked on Range of motion. Which you and. I'm not mind onto which is like okay. I get this. I can number one. It's easy it's it's universally adaptable. It pretty easy with everyday objects. No real higher level engineering degree required. But you're able to kind of wrap your pt ot brain around and go. How can i make this fun like when you were talking about creating a using the rocker board. It reminded me of. Have you ever heard of go baby. Go so call will talk at about one time using an atv. And they're like we wanted to stand so every time he sat down they reversed the switch and the atv turned off so dan to to make the move it. Just game a fixation. You're saying well. You know i don't know katie. Maybe this is only for kids. Look at power. Tom bike right that little that little output monitor. That tells me how fast i'm doing with my cadence in my and my resistance and that little bar that goes up. That's game of my exercise so i was a young would not put a limit on age range so like when i say the box. It's like design for like. Obviously i've been using it anywhere from preschool. But i've used it with adults in my outpatient jobs. I kind of now in my mindset will go into outpatient clinic. And when i see somebody like i will sorry by fund anybody but this i am not a fan of the resistance clothes pins and if i see anybody else just putting clothes pins yet i wish i could just rip them out of reconnects clinics. But you know it's like i get their point like figuring but how often are you actually doing that so i was like that's going to be in the clinic in it's going to be used. It's got to be used for something a little gauging and so basically you can same thing. They're like you could have made that working on. Pinch drank working other Range of motion to reach to the top and that actually becomes resisted by adding just a piece of aluminum tape and working in. You know like working in the field of therapy. Least in an outpatient setting i worked in. It is where like scheduled on the hour. You in a more prep time and so laughing is is like sometimes. It's just a matter of me sticking alligator clip in plato and unmake that using that to make whatever i'm doing to be conductive but it just adds that piece of technology which we know is highly engaging her not only a child with a disability but any.
How Tech Companies Are Changing The Way They Price Things
"Chances are you've changed the way you spend your money. This year from the tech companies have noticed everyone from apple to amazon. Zoom has been experimenting with the way they price their products to try and entice and keep customers joining now to talk about. Some of their strategies is our personal columnists nicola wedding. Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new.

"Roddy so small. Watch this today. I mean the market con of played. What are we not. I mean we. We certainly saw off Throughout the session in fact from the break of yesterday's law yesterday now the die before we move roughly three percent low so you know it was continuing that selling momentum it was starting to increase in the price of which it was coming off but then it reversed and now we've got bullish candles now. The interesting thing for mayo. The most important thing for me is how far we recovered from the low. All of the die we recovered about five point four percent now as much as the only closed off what it close up one point two percent. It's way price came from. Its reading the information accessible on that shot but that candle align its tokes to make it says a lot to me and it's now bullish candle. It's in the cradles. Aren't certainly not a crime. Tried from our point of view given the fact that we do not have that wonderful. Simplicity fantastic trend. But it's there The two days also in that cradles iron as well now not decide that they want further not at all but if we were to move higher i six three. I think thousand six hundred thirty We go to break but this looks like the market is still a little bit on will at wants to do and that the guy in comes from that daily candle it was selling off it had broken. The pride is low. it was. The friday was down. Four point five percent down over three percent at one stage there yet. We bounced back. I want to look at the journey of bitcoin. What it did throughout that some threat session. All to for example there was a little high low in ohio and of course it's not the cleanest clearest transnational another trend that. I'm looking to try but a detroit. Sell off a guy from the cradle zayn and filed. It did not get to move law. The market decided out to the market saw that not. We're gonna continue to move higher. All is it just david pullback before the next ditlow these are things that are right now right now. I certainly still short tried. I have a couple of the that are their modest but a guy. It's the clarity of direction is just not really strong right now especially given yesterday's selloff in pull back up to closing strong will was closing strong close than where it was at its lows of course and of course the ball. We've got something very similar again. Bitcoin was up one point. Two percent closed. I ten thousand five hundred forty. Where now down point four four hundred and seventeen and not ready telling me too much a guy like i said the The cape point ready. The high obviously is closed. Eighteen thousand six hundred thirty bragged that with what you see it. Climb back towards nineteen thousand but again the the there is not a real strong confirmation there of trend on a theory actually looking for short. Yes tonight closed up three point four percent and the guy just to talk you through. I will let kendall tells me from. Its lies to its close. It recovered point full sent. That's my main fate. That's a big move under though it didn't close up three point six percents nothing to be studied that Dying in that cradles the two days still hanging in there with could continue to console it for a while but if the high of yesterday's candle for seven twenty six we might see further nothing really special that exile pay close up four point two percent yesterday which ends up being recovery was on its lies. Fifteen point five percent a big recovery from excel pay still continues to be a quad volatile. Dies saying some big moves up and down quite frequently. There are fifty seven point six cents carney game and one percent today so far with them only just opening about forty minutes ago Bitcoin cash. I'm not really interested in bitcoin. Cash still back within that channel and it's very messy now. It closed up point full of percents stick with the same fame That was a recovery from its lies of five point six seven percent where two hundred and sixty nine dollars right now which is flat on the lot going closed up point five of a percent and as much as there are lower highs and lows and a twelve hour clearly showing downtrend. There's no notebook leah a great short traits to meet the staging a guy and just requires a little bit more patients and two white to say if that market can deliver. What is that. We're off to in terms of confirmation of direction. A guy from its lawyers to where it closed way recovered seven point five percent at seventy seven dollars and eleven so right now down point four percent on the day Still busy guy. Still very messy shot up point three percent yesterday. The recovery on yesterday was fox. Six percent there's not much interest for me for aol. Still it's just not ready. Got himself in any sort of position to be. I guess capturing more tension to eighty rot now. This one of the closed down it closed down one point six two percent now the recovery for they a very messy job was also six point two percent. It's a very horrific looking shot. It is really really ugly. It's lacking a great deal. The four there is a down trend. somewhat it's just not very good in. It's not a child i'm really Sorry considering for any directional trading he hundred sixty nine ninety four Cost to buy one right now. bonnets pulled back the twenty seven dollars closing the One point seven percent which also recovery was from its lows on that support roughly around about full point seven percent. It's the only one in the top ten currently up at some point one of the percents not a great deal and at the twenty eight dollars and nineteen cents a game. A market looked trend. Number four is not bad but without support twenty seven. It's not one that i'm going to be. I'm able to thrive myself out. If i'm honest. Cow donna no no the daily it was up. It was well full point eight percent at a giant recovery from its lies and thirteen bounce back. Thirteen point eight percent from its To where it closed a guy hip. It is a bit choppy. It is a bit messy much assignments. You pretty much majority of the market. There is potential for a shorts It's just it's the now that's really the one that would have more attention more than any of the other time frames at this stage but a guy white for that confirmation. Fourteen point six cents is what will cost you to baucau donna right now which is down point. Six seven of sent yesterday for lake. It was well a three point. Eight percent and the recovery from its lows. It isn't a bit of a downtrend. Rotten handle the smoothest but today recovering from life is nine point six percent of a strong rejection of those laws which is pretty much saying across the entire market yesterday so much we have seen a little bounce off. We're gonna continue haro Pullback for more down with momentum
