What's it Like to Run a Successful Cyber Security Company?
"You know since we have this opportunity of of being to leaders of cybersecurity companies. When are we digging a little bit and talk about what that experience is like. What the day to day is like of running successful cybersecurity companies christopher. Why don't we start with you. Good question so i think about it. Sort of you got to have sort of balance your time First of all start with your customers or your clients. You know you gotta make sure the in you know the the thing when you run a company is that. There's so many things that people try to make you do so. You have to be vehemently focused on. Stay focused on customers trying to understand the problems they want to solve. You know figure out how you can do. Clever things without I'm a technical. Co deep by background. So i tend to try to think fair fairmont and spend time in our product stuff you know. How can we actually shape this. You know to to sold for for the customer problems and then making sure that you have the right people on board which means that you involved in recruiting and all kinds of different things. That are whether it's sort of very short-term get south sally or bob were lisa onto the team or you think about the long-term two three four five years. How do we make sure that we get great. People on board make sure that those can develop themselves in great ways inside the company. And just make sure that you have a great team so if you spend time on those three areas. I think you do pretty well. A lot of people tend to be focused on fundraising and all kinds of other weird things that i think. Sort of come for free. If you do what i just talked about sort of And and so customers and sort of product and technology being real clever about that and your people and then then things will work out great. I agree with what christopher said. But i would also say are being. I built a number of businesses in my career and in cybersecurity. While what i find intriguing is that we are all trying to make turn trying to turn bad news into good news Security is dealing with problems dealing with risks dealing with nasty things dealing with things. You wouldn't want to deal with dealing with things where people have made mistakes. So there's a lot of sort of cleaning up and dirt and bad stuff there but but for the business to work we have to turn it around and show the benefit of it and a customer sees so or anybody else in the security business. They don't want to be the one saying no in their company. They want to be a business enabler. So so it's meant thuillier demanding question how to turn all that bad stuff into good news for business and to me. That's that's an intriguing challenge with any cyber security business. Does that resonate with christopher. No i think so. It is very interesting and you know. In general running companies general running startups. I always like to say that people say they try to say that this startup stuff is sort of has good and bad days. And i'm like no you know it really. It has twenty nine bad days but it is just sat. One one day out of the thirty. That really awesome. That makes up for the twenty nine so you sort of generally in startup land live of pretty up and down and lots of downside of days and then you overly that to to morton's point the idea that you you frankly are dealing with you know potential bad constantly and it's it can be taxing and i'm fine with that. I'm sort of more than as a super strong guy. So he can sort of deal with that but you gotta make sure that your team can deal with that in a decent way and you know through the last year when you put sort of covert on top of. This is certainly hasn't been really easy. So i think it's a great point. Yeah there. is this a picture circulating social mediums cybersecurity people with this dog or cat sitting in a burning house and the their flames all over and then the animal says it's all right or it's good and it's it's yeah. This is fine exactly. It's so much the the reality that we have to deal with burning fires all the time and yet we have to maintain our calm and balance and composure. And and see the the good news in it. So that's that's what makes cybersecurity excites i think. What would you know. What's interesting is that. I think about our business being intelligence and our our job is to make sure that a c. So or other decision makers get the best information flow there can ever be. And what you're doing by sort of crowdsourcing vulnerabilities these ethical hackers sort of similar. You create a fantastic information flow in decision making sort of flow to to the sea so and and other people on the climb client side of things and you're right when you get that information flow. It's not unlike somebody who works in whether it's a you meant intelligence organization or organization. Whatever it is. It's sort of like you face having bad news coming out you potential bad news coming out you at high pace and if you start if you operate it away where you panic on that and yukon you just can't you know there's and i think that's sort of as leaders. Our job is to sort of take this. This sort of flow information. It just make sure that turned turns it into something good and i like that. I'm starting to think about product changes that we need to do to to think about that. That's very powerful. Yeah i tell our customers. Sometimes that somebody will break into your system and please let it be us and because when we do it we will actually help you fix it by. There are many other other people and groups and at not who will just break into stealing formation or disrupt operation or change change what goes into drinking water or something like that

Onion Domestication and Improvement
"We're going to talk about domestication again of a unique vegetable and when you ask people what their favorite vegetable is very few people say the onion however it's hard to think of vegetable or plant item for that matter. That has a more ubiquitous place in our culinary universe. It's you know the powders. The the the the basic parts of onion are important flavor in many different things that we consume and i think about just about everything i cook starts chopping up and onion so i wanted to pursue. Where did it come from. How did we get it. Where is it going. And so we're speaking with dr mike heavy. He's a he works with the. Usda agricultural research service in madison wisconsin and also as a faculty member in a department of horticulture. So welcome to the podcast. dr heavy. thank you so much. This is really cool. I think i actually got to see you. Give a talk once. And i can't remember where it where it was but i think what did you ever give talk in savannah georgia at the national onion association meeting. Yes i did about four five years ago. We had a joint meeting between the national onion association and then all the research community. I think we met there. Yeah that's i seem to remember that. Yeah i think. I may have asked you at the time too. If you'd be a guest on the podcast and just takes time so. Let's talk about onions. Like i mentioned before it has such an important culinary value. Where did it come from end. Do natural populations still exist. So the onion like many of our grain and vegetable and fruit crops was domesticated in central asia specifically iran. Turkmenistan afghanistan that area and it spread from there around the world and is now consumed in produced on every continent except in artika. There are still the most closely related. Wild specie is called alien babalola by and that grows naturally still in the kopech. Dr region which forms the border between northern iran and southern turkmenistan. And so the wild relatives still exists. There probably was in prehistory was more widely distributed but We can still find alien. Below by inet area oval ovalles. That was a discovery or at least a characterization by vavilov the species is named after him. Allie taxonomy in the former soviet union named this wild species after nikolai. About by batalov. Okay i never remember seeing so much about his his expeditions into places like iran. Turkmenistan you that he was Know prolific in that area. So but that makes sense to when you talk about the species of wild onion. I know that even here in florida there are things that they haul a florida. Wild onion and in chicago is named by from indigenous peoples term for stinky onion. So are these related to the major culinary onions or are these some kind of distant relative first of all the alliens. The genus of onion is distributed around the northern hemisphere and here in north america. Most albums have a seven chromosomes whereas onion and garlic chai have a basic chromosome number of eight. So they're distant relatives and we can't cross them with onion but they do have unique flavors in many places there still collected in consumed but really are very distantly related to the onion that we know. Have there been any efforts that you're aware of to domesticate those regional varieties that are grown with the seven chromosome ones that are growing around. Say the native united states. Yes you do find him showing up. Sometimes farmers markets different species out west in the california in the rockies. There are numerous albums that can be collected in consumed but to my knowledge. There's no effort to really Breed them in and develop some unique flavors or production characteristics from them so the primarily just collected so when you talk about the actual album that was used that is the forefather of the modern onion. Who was really the first to domesticate that they would have been probably nomadic tribes in central asia most of the central asian republics of the former soviet union onion and many of its wild relatives naturally exist and probably these people's started collecting him in eating them initially and ultimately i feel Asexually propagated them. Much like you would. Shall it today break apart. The basal plate planet and then i think probably seed production at conscious breeding occurred later but it would have been nomadic tribes in central asia tens of thousands of years ago they mostly use it for food flavoring or were there other potential uses of onion now. That's an interesting question that has been quite a topic of debate. A couple of things may have played an important role in the domestication of onion. One of them is that Because it was an editorial form is a perennial grows every year. It sprouts very early in the spring and many of your listeners may grow chives and the green leaves of tribes. Come out very early in while alley. That's true as well. It's not a good source of vitamin c. But it does have vitamin cs. I think you could think about a nomadic tribes taking advantage of that early green growth of the leaves in the spring as a source of vitamin c and potentially other vitamins and flavorings but the taste is also has to have an effect. I think and. I wonder if maybe wasn't important to mask off. Flavors maybe for some ranson meets or different foods that may not have it have an off taste and that maybe the early domesticated is used that straw salt pungency flavor compounds in the album's to their benefit.
How to market Blockchain with Itai Elizur from MarketAcross
"And partner at a marketing agency will actually to marketing agencies under the same roof when it's called inbound junction. Still active in historically into the bbc asked base. I'm a marketer for about more than ten years in the b. two b. safe-space which is very big in israel of work tel aviv based agency and about four five years ago we were getting pretty big fintech space and some are bigger and better partners in israel talks about about the growing space into my partners very early investors and bitcoin lost a lot of money in mccormack's ended just kind of opened a sister agency called market across and started working with projects. We were very active. In the seal boom downs of jean-ann we've matured with industry today. We are a full stack marketing agency working with a lot of big macs. How does marketing. How does marketing. For blockchain and crypto. How does that differ. 'cause said you're kind of doing both sides you have under one roof. How what's the. What's the core. Differences remark integration question. I would say lease the first generation of projects that i was part of thousands of so there. I always say that i think blockchain is over. Pr and marketed. Because there were actual products it was more of misstatements ideas and most of these eight based protocols again you know. You don't have a big city on the website of sign up or purchase. Or whatever. So very different from classical. I would say. Vw marketing which has literally a conversion point. Put something in relics alright optimizing towards a funnel or something like that. So i would think that that is the most core core difference between product marketing and more i would say branding and marketing and maybe even assisting fundraising style marketing. That's i think the core difference. And i think the other one would be today about. There's just so much charity very fast. So when you go to the other part which our product will be a wallet in exchange. Whatever you have environments where there's fifty or sixty comes king in two three years and it's so hard to differentiate especially for a marketer to try convey that message so i think that's how it this is so new and it kind of there. There are some leaders in some spots in the sphere. But but still. Is that a big issue. This this problem differentiation. Where we're as a marketer. You have to single out. You know you're trying to take your client and say this is why they're different but is the customer. The customer base even knowledgeable enough about about the technology that you could differentiate easily here. That's a that's a great question. So let's different you between i would say Based protocols and technology and then products like exchangeable so when people who come to us again mostly developers or developers in the blockchain space are very very techy. Maybe don't come from a business or marketing background. They'll come to us and say oh you know my network goes to eleven speed or whatever and you're in me as a marketer i'm gonna say right but what's on the block you know how many people transactions are actually processing so in. That's a. that's a big gap between when people want to sell the technical capabilities and want to say all right the me as a marketer pr person at least today people much more wanna see about adoption. So that's like. I think i'm the tech level where you need to go and say all right you're not gonna talk about triple charting. Whatever because that's not really the main thing had to bring that chored usable business use case and when it comes to product marketing and it's also a bit together. I think it's kind of like schilling. Is is great outside but when sit inside the strategy. That doesn't look right. there's a lot of exchanges. What's different about this other than you know. Argos secrete the easiest platform okay. Great but right now in other space would you giving people what's different in. How do you play on. That really executive could be the non. Kyc concept could be the fiat pairings. It could be a really good mobile interface. But we're in that place already. Were ordinary place where people are discussing that not just stating we're going to build a the nicest exchange so I think we're an industry. That's moving in the marketing. Space from wall want will ken to like our is in doing. So that's for me like my biggest mission with my clients. It's really trip. Notch it down from the potential to what's actually
Microsoft keeps head down while other tech companies come under fire
"Of the most interesting things when you. When you look at the quarterly reports, the ten cues in the annual report ten ks the one of the things you know always skim through the results because. They're the numbers matter and everything. That's what everyone's going to be writing about tonight and tomorrow. But the thing that I always zero in on is the section called risk. Factors. And then when you look at the risk factors section, then the thing that you do is you compare the wording in the risk factors section for this quarter to last quarter and a quarter before that and and boy oh boy, you can find some really good stories when you see that all of a sudden showed up as a risk factor that had to be disclosed this is this is the kind of stuff that that they're putting they're putting that in. There because they see this as possibly something that's going to happen. Right? You know six months from now or two or three years from now. But when when the bad news happens they're they're they're basically inoculating themselves against shareholder lawsuits by disclosing it in the risk factors. So that's from a from pure lay persons or journalist as opposed to analysts point of view. That's the place to go and read I as you get get all the juicy dirt. of course. Sorry before before we. Miss this point you talked about Ed about. What Google the breakout cloud business on their fact sheet but they may never do that because wasn't it last year they said that they're going to give it a couple more years, and if it doesn't work out, they might diverse divest and like. Google way. There's possibility. They're not breaking out right because they might get rid of it and They don't want it to show up in the book. That's there's a certain discipline that Google CFO ruth poor at his imposed over the last few years that that wasn't there. Maybe in the early days of Larry and Sergei where she she's pretty quick. If something is not going to turn a profit she's pretty quick to say, okay, boys it's bye bye and There has been a little bit of a detriment to Google because I think there's also the impression that Google doesn't stick with anything. You know well, that that same thing you know what poor it's been doing with the various other bats I think is actually behind something that happened with waymo earlier this year for the first time back in February of this year, Waymo took outside investment from outside of alphabet up until now, it's the self-driving project at Google has always been internally funded by alphabet and Google and this year they took three billion dollars in outside investment for the first time and you know it wasn't talked about very much. You know other than saying Oh. Yeah I've got all this. Is all excited about you know Google raising this extra money. You know why? Why are they suddenly taking money from other investors and I? Think it's because poor at looked at, you know the the prospects for automated vehicles becoming a real business and decided to you know it's probably going to happen but it's GonNa, take a lot longer than everybody was thinking. Two three or four years ago, and she probably told Waymo look if you WanNa keep this going, you're going to have to find some funding elsewhere and that's why they went to Silverlake and Magnano few other investors and raise this extra money to give them extra runway until they can actually scale a business out of that in three four five years time You know. So you know poor at probably told you can keep it going. We're we're not gonNA shut you down but you're going to have to find funding somewhere else and it's not just more money. It's also reducing their exposure the. The bet fails only owned two thirds of it. That's better than if they own one hundred percent of it. So at data away with Google, calls them as other bets. Historically Google's noth- nothing but lose money on other bats. They make enough money in search and advertising that they can fun dollars stuff but they've yet to find the magic bullet that's going to give them a new business. They really haven't even android I don't think is a huge benefit to them. Only, to the extent that it that it props up search search business or. Yeah. Yes. Search and advertising sixty or seventy percent of of mobile traffic worldwide that my you know my question on the for Sam on taking the external investment in something like Waymo is that it also? Lessons that the the the likelihood that if they have a home run if they if this becomes the business, you know one of the businesses that can help sustain them when you know if search advertising gets into trouble, but all of a sudden, you've allowed a whole bunch of outside investing in their year now, sharing the profits with other people and a lot of that ameliorating effect that you're hoping for. Doesn't approve you, right? Yeah. You reduce the risk, but you also reduce the upside when you bring in other partners and I mean, that's that's true of any startup business, the more investors you bring in. The founders are ultimately going to get less of the the the windfall if there is one. aright. So say ED having looked at the risks and the rewards of the Microsoft. Balance Sheet. It was pretty good quarter, right? It absolutely. Was Yeah and. The thing to me that's amazing is they have in terms of risk they have managed to keep their head down. While every one of their competitors is just taking fire left and right and there you know I didn't see. Sacha. In you know. In those in any of those hearings this past week. So you know it's it's This is a company that is they are really humming along with a boring. But? Profitable. Business. INCOME UP THIRTY PERCENT YEAR OVER YEAR Thirteen, point nine, billion for the quarter not bad not shabby although on par with every other these companies we're talking about all the all the other big. Tech giant's behemoths little sidebar here. These investigations by whether it was the house antitrust subcommittee that issued a very long scathing report that did include. Did it not Microsoft? Maybe not maybe they feel like Microsoft's been spanked already. So they don't need to be spanked again the Department of Justice investigation into Google, a number of investigations in the EU but the US investigations. especially. This past week's testimony. Really. About section to thirty cm tainted by politics to some degree and I have to wonder if there really is any real risk. To these companies anymore than. The president's executive order against TIKTOK has harmed Tiktok in any way if anything, it's probably just increased downloads. The politics seem to hinder the ability to kind of. Agree on what to do. You. Agree. Ed. Oh God. Only, the the whole the whole you know, the the section to thirty hearings that weren't they were just they were just grandstanding no political grandstanding it was it was political grandstanding it was you know and and and the real thing is when you look at. A hearing that is legitimate is going to have legislation that comes out of it. Right I failed to see how any legislation could come out of this that would that would get past senses. There's no concern about what to do on on anything no and and all of the possibilities no matter which direction you go make things worse not better for everyone I mean, it's it is the classic lose lose proposition. So this was just an opportunity for primarily this was. The Senate you know. So it's run by the It's run by Republicans and it was an opportunity for Republican senators to yell at social media companies and create sound clips right for their round by taking us for the running ads or to share with their chair with their constituents tough on twitter. Let me tell you. It also diminishes the power that it would be in the past like, Oh, I got called in front of Congress, I don't want to happen. When it happens every other week, you could there is a note about how calm all the the CEOS were like when they were being questioned even though they're being screamed and yelled at, it's because they're like so this isn't going to do anything no one cares and nothing's going to come of it. So it's unfortunate that the power of Congress or the power of the Senate. Is having diminished effect because of this theater in an era where facts are don't hold the same weight. So it's the IT. Even, both sides Republican and the Democrat size they're talking as if they didn't really understand what the law was governing the these companies or how their place in it could affect the future of the Internet.

Used to travel a lot more before this whole pandemic thing. So that bug is absolutely there unlike you I loved tropical vibes. Places A Beautiful Landscapes Yeah, absolutely. I love her brother and I also personally love your arch Merill Journey, but I want to share with fire nation now. So talk to us about Your Arch Moreau journey to get you to where you are today. Sure. Many years ago with been around for maybe twelve to thirteen years. Now Time Flies John and I started as a door to door sales. Read Right I was working at an Elementary School in Orlando Florida and working my tail off to get into like twenty eight, thousand dollars a year a two weeks vacation hoping seven thirty to three thirty at whatever time off of work and I wanted to do something they gave me more time. Gives me more time and I work hard is up. Can I do something that doesn't can't my income but I, really just wanted to have more time. I'm like you after I just WanNa sit at the beach I. Just WanNa look out the window I just want to play basketball or actually I wanted to do with my children by how can I do that and so I went online inbound a position In a one, hundred percent commission sales opportunity. before and to California wasn't successful at all initially. Because he was trying to do with the corporate way with you know the sales pitch in the book and. Corporate approach in just got turned down. At. Every business that I went to drop it right now. So you know what? Let me just Relate to people from Detroit Michigan School of hard knocks in the thing I I know how to do is connect with people. You know winner talk we're not to talk sometimes and I did that in super. Just to speed it up really quick I. had a triple my income that year a quadruple did the next year. But then I realized that what I was doing wasn't what I thought. I was doing meaning that I was selling the product that I didn't even understand myself rice. Even though I had dropped the sales pitch book, still have the spirit of that particular company in the industry itself, and that is the spirit of confusion. So you know I was selling merchant programs where the be rates were. There'd be tough with at least not by Terminal Benign, bucks you Lisa for three hundred bucks. This is especially for brick and mortar businesses. You can lease terminal could cost ninety nine dollars you can. Literally Lisa the terminal but three to sometimes a thousand dollars per month for forty eight months in into the least they do not own the machine and it was just you know even the in the way we would pitch them. It was just a real messy thing once I realized what I was doing because I had never read the contract I had never really met the contract myself. I was just starting the program. And once I realized I had to move decision it was totally against particular companies I guess goes to really client on what's really happening behind the scenes by the time decline realize what going on it was too late they were locked into. A four, five year contract with all kinds of these anti get out of it was it will require legal entanglement right with them as you have to hire attorneys go through this other stuff in its contract. So it's Kinda hard to get out of it. So. I had to make a decision to leave that company, lead all the money that had all the recurring incumbent had to. It's up deleted lead cable right and so I did that I went to work with another company and in six months I had. Replaced the incumbent Henry the other company, man those bags were not. They were robbing me and I was by taking advantage of announced robbing Murchison's basically right or Robin clients. So. Same thing had been there all of a sudden. They create money out of thin air when I say thin air veneer. So as an example, there's something called Pi compliance that every business needs to happen in particular Brigham mortar businesses by you don't necessarily. Do but something healthy you it helps protect

From there that I went to a special training done Dallas Texas. From their. Energy. Military service spent several years there. Then, it came back and. I was already begun to use alcohol quite a bit. Anton went on new just increase and later on. A came to the level. Rodeo. and not necessarily as a was sober mind minded with a lot of my friends and drinking pardons. And Smith Show years in there. I'm a lot of friends. Alone. They're lying on those years I met my wife. As I've been raised in a very traditional family to teachings grown to be medicine man, and also later on the new moon was Yoda. American church hours or Dane and that movement. My wife was pretty much on the other side of it where traditional ways. Yes. But the same way to that was raised by her immediate family in the sense in our sisters was mom and dad was pretty much using a lot of substance abuse. So she kind of was raised in a very independent. She didn't. She doesn't really know about the traditional ways of teaching, but I was groomed pretty much into that. So when he came together. Through a dangerous Rodeo this how That we came together. But we got to know each other and she stuck around. I. Soda Job Medifast I would say that was given the job. A job that with a big corporation IBM. Then spent twenty years with the company. But one thing that I want to stress his about my mom, my relationship with my father. When I was a kid that you know, Lilla one that Probably about four five years old. Every time when he comes home, he always comes home drunk. He always said my number one son. He would play with me. Always being rough with me to be a man. And always makes me cry. A remember that. Whenever he comes home and on close to home it. Oh, my aunties Manco used to hide me different hiding places. And by the time when I was about probably about four or five years old. My Dad chose alcohol over. Over my brother. Ni- he left us a never came back. All, these years growing up. Just kinda strange. As. I said, know went to a new family GRANDPA family and what to boarding school. And that the. Holidays. Kiss been picked fathers or their. Grandmother grandparents. And there was nobody.

Houston Rockets fail to stave-off elimination in loss to the Los Angeles Lakers
"So, there's a whole list of ways to For a whole host of the culprits here. Right IF PEOPLE WANNA start scapegoating or pointing fingers at the reason for the rockets. Quick Demise. This postseason I might point to James Harden just say they're fundamentally flawed because of the the style that he plays and how how hardened centric they are that I will always key on that. I but there is the Russ Hardin experiment. There's small ball itself. There's the catch all analytics failed that there's there's the camp out there who wanted to blame analytics or Darrell Blame Mike Dan Tony. It's about maybe it's about his system although I don't think they were running what Mike is usually known for. Is there one thing that stands out to you? That was that the primary culprit for why they failed this particular postseason? Well I'll answer that two ways first and foremost is that it's very hard to win an NBA championship especially coming out of the Western conference I think people forget that think how you have to beat our. You know now with Lebron James Who's arguably the best player in the League one of the best of all time he is here, Wilde Leonard whose I believe has the best. Regular season win percentage in the NBA history who may be on the verge of leading his third different team to an NBA championship is the best player he's out here and the no. Forget the team in the bay that went to the finals five years in a row they're going to be back next year and how are those are the guys you have to just to get To the NBA finals out of the West. So I think in our winner, take all society it's easy to forget that as I mentioned, I think the rockets have been arguably the second best team in the NBA over the last four five years So they are close however to answer your question more directly. The biggest concern I have like I said is on the biggest stage look. Who sometimes as an executive coach or player, and sometimes it's not that's what happened to him a few years ago in game seven when they missed twenty seven consecutive threes or whatever it was that's part of the deal that way this thing goes the way it shouldn't go. Howard. If you'RE GONNA WANNA win anything at a high level is you always have to try you always have to compete. You always have to give your best effort. Now can Houston do that? Can they answer those questions that remains to be seen and unfortunately were they new head coach coming in? I think to some extent Howard whenever next season starts it doesn't really matter what they. Do in the regular season you and I both think the Houston Rockets as you know currently constructed or very likely to be playoff team again, the western conference but the questions are going to start again when they get to the playoffs and frankly I don't think they'll be able to answer those questions until the playoffs are ending as far as did they show up and compete every night because we have two examples in the last four years where they haven't done that in the big stage and has a lot of people myself included scratching their head as far as you know why James Harden, his teammates didn't even try to rise to the occasion. Yeah it's. You lay it out correctly or I would agree with the way you laid out, which is as you start looking forward. Immediately you have to think about. All right. Well, who who are we chasing and if we assume everything stays static that Lebron Anthony Davis are still together that Paul, George is still together. The nuggets aren't going anywhere. So there's a three teams at the top. Already, the warriors could very easily and should jump back into the top four. Even Gotten to Utah or the rising mavericks or anything else yet, and at best the rockets are V before we've even gotten through this season much less the off season and getting next. Look ahead like do we know how do we? How do you forecast them's anything better than that, and that's fine. If you're young team on the rise, if you're the mavericks and you look out an next year source, maybe somewhere in the four, five, six range. That's fine. You're young team on the rise you're you're you're building as you go the rockets are you know you're built around two stars in their early thirties? And if you're if you're not going forward, then you're going backward the you're sliding and I don't know that the flexibility is there to to really rebuild around those two guys on the fly here. So I don't know whether assuming darryl still in the job because there's been doubts about that too. But whatever. Whatever the Front Office does this off-season I I do not envy especially in an Arrow or in a year with potentially a shrinking cap with the little or two zero flexibility I don't I just don't know where they go from here unless you go and start entertaining the extremes and that's trading the stars and that that might be even harder. So maybe they have no choice but to just stay on the path, try to find some bargains and hope for the best I
Fed sees interest rates staying near zero through 2022, GDP
"Bloomberg is reporting that the Federal Reserve is likely to hold interest rates at zero. For five years. Now the Fed hasn't made this announcement yet. In fact, by the time you're hearing my voice maybe they may have made it maybe not I'm not sure. So it right now it's in this kind of limbo where lots of serious financial people are taking this as Gospel but we haven't heard the official announcement and you know this stuff leaks out. So here we are, but you know something I have to believe it. Because Jerome Powell is a fed chairman is like he's The let's it against the wall and see what sticks guy, right so I believe this I believe that they're going to try to signal to the market. Don't worry about anything. We're going to keep rates low near zero for five years. I believe this even if it doesn't turn out to be completely true like you know. One two, three, four, five years from now whatever. It's still it's the idea of believing that they intend this kind of signaling. Or something like it right and it's it's their way of throwing up their hands and saying. We really don't know what to do and you know something there's honesty in this we've talked about this before with the Fed actually talked about it with the European Central Bank and the Fed. And you know when remember we talked about Mario Draghi and he said back in with God it was twenty twelve or something. He said you know we'll do whatever it takes, and then he said I think it was twenty fourteen or sixteen or something whatever years ago he said don't worry you know negative interest rates will not collapse the financial system and we said it was Shakespearean Right. It's it's a kind of telegraphing of the truth it has more truth than the actual truth. It. Has More truth in it than if Draghi had said. This could result in a huge crash down the line but right now we don't know what else to do. And that's what this five year fed holding the interest rate near zero thing does. It's got more truth and more information in it. than. Than? At first blush.
Episode 16: What Do You Meme? - burst 1
"Five, four, five years ago where I started addressing like more. Controversial topics if you WANNA, call it that and. I found that memes can go so far but not as far as they need to go sometimes in really opening up the discussion. So then try to start putting As what some people have called described as books in the description section of kind of unpacking that. So I think what makes a little different is that we use it as humor sometimes and it's still a lot of stuff we post on humorous, but it's really more of a page that theology mean page or really more theology that uses means to communicate that than just a Christian mean cage with relatable funny church Christian content. There's plenty of those out there and those guys have. Awesome stuff. But really the pages kind of moved along in regards to Kinda how I've developed as
Is Tiger Woods about to make a putter change?
"Talked again, we talked a good amount about him. He looks great. There's a lot of positive thoughts about his chances this week he warned in Oh five. He won here I think that he never shot higher than sixty eight and then in two thousand, nine, the President's covers here at harding park he went five Oh and so he has good history here he is still the. Reigning Masters Champion. Ugly, Fifteenth. In the world, some are trying to point. So some negatives like he's only played four competitive rounds in six months. I'm not focused on that I. Don't think he gives a shit about that. He showed up to Zozo championship last year in Japan and it felt like we had seen him play golf or any decent golf in months, and he's won that tournament in Atlanta. He showed up to the President's cup. We were there. We were physically there watch the entire thing. Play the president's coverage has several the best players in the world, their best player, the President's Cup in a landslide. So Tiger Woods smile and yet focused I like his chances this. I think he's come a long way since Monday and a lot of people's minds in that. All is incredibly exciting. On. Monday because. If we remember in the last podcast, you said, he really had no chance. That's true. Well, said, he's the favourite. Video and a you know with the weather and everything else that I would write this low on his list Jimi play whatever rig said because it wasn't that wasn't what we said and it certainly wasn't when said he was literally what I just you in you in the New York Post or two peas in a pod newer post tweeted out. Tiger Woods needs a miracle this week at the championship it was like what the fuck is going on and you know rig says similar points new. York Post. I said tiger. Woods is the favorite I said that on Monday show Tuesday show Jake will find that but I just ranked course and the the fact it's fifty five fucking degrees and narrow fairways. Low on the list of tiger woods majors coming up in the next four five years. It's not that hard. Of course, is not the art of course, I gave Frankie thumping already park last night. On the game. So it was like I I I could go out there right now in wooded. So the overall. Well I you know. I didn't realize we were GONNA play a marathon session of golf club twenty, nineteen I looked at the time we're finished up three and a half hours. My back was sore. I couldn't feel my feet like it's not built for endurance I'm just not built for endurance but I smoked you. At harding. Park. So I'm not too worried about art course conditions. By the way, we're not just a heads up just while we're talking about it. We said we were GONNA stream tonight, Thursday you're listening to it but we didn't realize that the coverage goes so late. So we will not be streaming tonight, but we will doing Tuesday Thursday next week. So be on the lookout for that. Last Tiger related thing new putter. About the new potter, he's got the Scott Newport. I think it's like the two point. Oh it's the one with the different weights and couple of different reports about it. Some saying he's definitely putting it in play other saying it's GonNa be a game time decision he. According to Steve Stricker, Tiger really likes it. It's a little longer in length with have been over as much. We can practice as putting a lot more which makes a lot of sense So that would be a good thing for the back and then another aspect of it is that apparently it's got adjustable wait we have heard for decades now tiger. Could just couldn't get the speed right or you know other Greens were little slower than I thought and I guess instead of having to make that adjustment in your fields or in your judgment calls in, you're putting in how hard it he can just tweet the weights and the Scottie, and that's what he likes because you know if the Green Bay speed them up from. Wednesday Thursday early days beat him up from Saturday Sunday whenever he can just kind of tweak the weights part of me going into this feels like well, tiger woods has won thirteen or fourteen major championships with that part of that is the elder wand. That is the thing that he flipped and spun in circles right in front of our faces that ad US bedazzled. Is the horn. Rocks. And any other usage of any other putter is not only blasted, but it's it's him searching a tim trying to find something which means he's not comfortable, and then the other part of me says, it's Tiger fucking. Would you give them a wooden stick? You give them happy. Gilmore's little hockey stick putter. He'll go out there and win because he's the greatest time you give them any driver persimmon would as a matter it'll just go out and win because he's better than everyone else and it doesn't matter So I'm a little torn on the whole thing. But it's Tigers putter. So everybody's talking about basically I'm just praying for success I mean, I do I think it's the right decision and adding and subtracting weights based on green speed that seems Like, if I'm just going to pick up a new tool every time when it's GonNa be different weight I don't think that I'm going to have much accessible but again, I'm not tiger so I'm not so keen on that. But Hell. If he's got confidence conferences key and if he thinks that's going to help them make more. Than you know play with a hockey stick or whatever. You just said you know so. Tricky one, but you were rooting for dagger. But I don't like I. Don't I'm not as doesn't work for me and I'm not a fan. I am not a supportive of the change I want that other potter to just pile up major victories and lurch. You said what I was GonNa say where changing the way day to day on a putter seems like a nightmare scenario I get that stegar woods. He's the greatest Golfer of all time but I need everything in my bag and again I'm not comparing myself to tiger woods but I need everything to be. One way just needed to be the same all the time. So messing with putter way just seems like a crazy idea but again, if he likes it if it makes him comfortable, that's GonNa give them better chances week. Thank God.
How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall
"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

Google cancels I/O 2020, its biggest event of the year
"Android news is not going anywhere. Thank goodness I wish the same could be said for Google. I O O is it. Another one where flip the light switch off now. At least at least this isn't going to end up on the killed by Google web page. Okay we know are lining a silver silver lining wherever you can totally inevitable you had to know. I feel like the second. I saw the the news break that facebook was canceling its FA development conference. I felt like the writing was on the wall. Right if facebook's willing to do it Why would company like Google be like? No we want to fry potentially endanger all the people arriving to shoreline in a couple of months of course. They're canceling even if we were just going to give them free t shirts when I got here. Yeah totally the free. T shirts would have been worth it. they are. They are canceling the May twelfth event while twelfth through the fourteenth That would have been held at the shoreline amphitheatre as it has been done for more than a decade while. The event has been held for more than a decade at shoreline passed. I think four years four five years. Shoreline Corona virus of course to blame for that First of all joe were you going to Google. Did you just going to cover it from here in the House? So nothing jazz. Yeah for me. It's the same thankfully but again like you said one of those things where it was bound to happen sooner or later with everything else going on. Yeah exactly everybody's EV. It's in fashion. It's in vogue right now to cancel your your life event well because of Corona virus. I posed the question. What'S UP Would would you hold it against Google? Had They not canceled this event? I personally I would. Yeah I probably would have. If they had kept the event if they had kept the event I I guess I guess it really depends if we get a month and a half down the line and we realize that you know it's it's not it turns out to not be a big deal. This whole corona virus thing compared to where people feel like. It's going maybe not so much but I but I would question Google's intentions and they're thinking behind the scenes if all of these other companies are thinking about the this the health and safety of people who would be attending this event and they still decide. Oh we don't care we mean. We're currently two months out right. Yeah so what if this had been April first instead of March first and then they said okay. Let's we can go ahead and put in a cancellation notice. Now would that be okay or is that too late? No you're right I mean if they well however at the same time people at her boss. I appreciate it. People are planning travel right. They're buying plane tickets. Non Refundable People in the in the you know the the area around shoreline. You know all of those. The the local economy is being built up. I mean it's the same story that we heard with Mobile World Congress brain and all these other things so I kind of feel like the sooner you do it the better. It is like tearing off the band aid. Earlier's that more problems. Don't come out of it what do you. How do you feel about this joe? I mean I think I agree with you too. Because the whole World Congress fiasco I think at least on twitter. When that news broke there was a seemed to be a lack of communication from the GSA may about what was happening and it was relatively soon the event was supposed to take place so I think Google wants to avoid any potential fallout bad. Pr that all last minute wasn't it? Yeah so I mean it's the virus itself is in such early stages. There's so much we don't know that it's probably better to be safe and now hold it censors. Probably a lot. We're GONNA know in the next month or two months. Once I o would have happened. Certainly no question There's also just the fact that like Google already streams so much of a Mayo online so of all of the events that like I've I've seen fee. Fa would probably fall into this category two that I definitely follow much closer than I do. F- eight but Google does a great job of streaming these events streaming these talks Really leaning into their youtube presence for broadcasting everything. That's happening at IO. They've got their keynote that they're gonNA stream so of all the events that are canceling right now. I Oh seems like the prime candidate to do it and still still be able to hold a virtual event. That's very successful soda. Used to it. Essentially totally their systems kind of designed to be able to To SUSTAIN THAT. I wonder about Facebook can it's a conference. I never really paid much attention. I know with Iot. Have the key note Doing a livestream. And they do not necessarily the sessions that the developers are paying four but they have all these other little little things going on ought to decide station with Sullen. So that they'll have up on livestream. Whatever does I don't recall facebook having anything like that. Other Than District Keno. They're they're big KENO. Yeah that's why I say like I haven't really followed it closely. Enough to know how wide their livestream presence on those events. A lot of what ends up online from Google isn't livestream. Necessarily it's pre- it's recorded. And then they publish it on. Youtube after the fact At least some some of the events. That's what it is. They if I if I recall correctly when you look at the like rundown of of each day's events there's certain things that have a little video camera next to it which is essentially means if you can still check it out on the livestream. But I don't think that's every single one of them. Maybe that changes. Maybe there won't be as many of these talks Yeah I mean. This is going to change the structure and also doing it. This far in advance. I think is really Responsible for a company like Google because they've got their entire machinery working to create this event. I don't see why they would want to wait until the last minute to cancel it because that's all of that effort and going into into creating this event that they suddenly pulled the rug out at least now they have a couple of months to say. Alright that's not happening anymore. How can we create a new experience that still satisfies the goals of what I would have been? Well I think now the biggest Question is we can. Now have these google executives come here to the studio and so yeah total chat. That totally totally all right. Well I know I will certainly i. I will do my best and I don't WanNa let you down Yeah but it is but it is a bummer and areas. Roshii if you ever want to come back on the show We would love to have you. Hiroshi locked time now they can just drive on. They have nothing better to do now that Io's done their schedules wide open
Solar Orbiter promises first look at sun's mysterious polar regions
"Solar so this this new solar probes launching tonight from the at space coast Kennedy Space Center it's going to take some of the first images of the polar regions of the sun which is a very cool thank the project manager says the European Space Agency has been developing the solar orbiter for about a decade liftoff in just about twelve hours eleven o'clock tonight so that'll be something look for just gonna study all kinds of stuff probably by who knows what right yeah it's exciting to me they they've useful takes on space for for years now but are the proprietary technology that they're using here I think it's gonna be completely self sustainable and be able to walk the take all those pictures and get the angles of the the sun and its relationship to you are the planets are exciting yeah and then of course improving things here on earth yeah thank I have a little bit of money out for us now in solar beer we were talking about that just a couple of minutes ago the world's largest brewery InBev is announce their virtual power purchase agreement some fifty plus brands including Budweiser gonna be brewed by the sun which is kind of neat why not right right well you know I'm going back to what the beginning of the show you know you ask yourself is it worth it so these guys asked if it was worth it you know these these are our companies are used to making millions if not billions of dollars annually you know and it's a business so if they can look at you know their balance sheets and they're seeing how much money they're spending electricity which we're probably talking about hundreds of thousands not millions of dollars across all of these and they're doing the math and that math is Hey if we reallocate these these dollars and we actually produce our own energy we're gonna see major tax incentives we're going to see you know a return on investment and we're gonna really have all of the savings at the bottom line if not the first year and a and a nice manageable you know sort of sort of manner where you can take the expense of of this you know and look at it on a cruel basis whether it's twelve months whether it's the whole cycle that it would take to pay it back and each month you're actually you know netting you're you're becoming positive and seeing return on your dollars and whether or not they're taking some the tax incentives that they've gotten this year from that some of the federal tax cuts and reinvesting into our technology and energy like this they're going to see the savings and that's for years to come yeah no doubt it in this purchase agreement they're saying they're gonna buy a hundred percent renewable energy from two major solar farms two hundred megawatts that's a lot of power yeah we don't need a second at our house sure and you know I guarantee you that power when it breaks down to a kilowatt hour or a megawatt hour or whatever you know unit of of power they're they're looking and it's going to be cheaper it's going to be something that's not going to require any pollution or or maintenance on you know large power plants or or extra fuel fossil fuels or any of that stuff it's just going to depend on whether or not that the sun comes out we feel pretty good about that bad and you know chances are when they have buying power like this to really make solar farms or to invest in them you know they're going to really really see a much cheaper price for electricity and once it's all paid for it's essentially going to be free yeah other big companies have done this to of course we we talk a lot about the F. B. L. thing they're they're thirty million panels in thirty years or ten years actually Nike Walmart three am I keel over did have a couple issue as with their panels but yeah they they they they get in you know it's it's far as locally if anybody were to ever get there Google maps out on the phone like you said I I kia you know we do have a couple of them in the South Florida area here this one just on down the road here on five ninety five and is completely covered it has a about a megawatt on the roof and they all do you know and that's that's something that they've done for years and that's our independence of of any of the you know local restrictions or anything all of their buildings do you have a solar on the roof obviously apple made their huge campus you know what solar on the roof Google has the same thing at all and a lot of these companies who are smart with their money and that's the that's the whole trick your guys they would never rent you know a huge part of their income in something that they could out you know and maybe it's difficult to own a house but but we do we do because we put a small down payment down we gather our credit and jump through the hoops and play by the rules and we can get a four five or six hundred thousand dollar loan just like we could for you know a boater really expensive vehicle or something like that and then you spend a lot of time paying it off you know but with the finance capabilities of this you could essentially without having to put all these things on the line get a are renewable energy payment cheaper than what you're spending right now it really really makes a lot of sense and if if you have big Bucks like these guys here you can reach into your own pocket buy the equipment and see the fastest return on investment possible but they all know that in three four five years they're gonna be sitting pretty and seeing huge huge dividends on
Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly
"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank

The many ways professional organizations help product managers with Mark Adkins
"How pita evolving to keep up with the Times. So it's funny because the one thing I in kind of full disclosure sure is I have two sons I four children. Two sons oser product managers. Not that I made them do that. Once a senior product manager at Google the other one is a product manager for ten cents the Chinese company that owns we chat but they also own riot games. James and he's part of the League of legends brand so I have these two sons who think they invented product management right. No no no no. Oh No it's been around a long time. I can't remember. I don't know who to ascribe it to a friend once called it the accidental profession. That's right and I. I've always loved that term. Although it's changing right I think that's what we'll talk more today about it. It really is a legitimate profession Russian. If you will but twenty thirty years ago it was you're tapped on the shoulder you know you're working at a company and you have an engineering degree or Marketing degree or finance degree. Somebody says hey. Atkins I want you to Ron product development in like what really and boom you're a product manager and that's part of again my history with PD was when I was tapped to run a product development program. I'm like who do I return to. How do I learn it is a profession? How do I become better at it? And that's where we are today. The role of product manager product owner her and so on his exploded and I think pedia may as well position to be the keeper that Professional Association for for this community. Because the other thing I would like to add is product. Managers are in corporations. Say We're practitioners but we have a great great history with academics. We welcome service providers so one of the very unique things about PD. Ama Professional Association is we include the entire our community so it it yes. It's people incorporations is people in startups doing product development. But it's the academic people that give us the foundation that we need to be he great at innovation and it's the service providers market research companies. The the design firms that are instrumental in doing great product Komo. Yeah I think that that Nicks is really key to PD me. And what I find so appealing about it and I was having a discussion with someone. This wonderful experience. I got to train in their product managers in this large organization and the guy that brought me and it was senior director of product management for them and he was talking about what we did for the training raining. My group is all based on. PDA's body of knowledge and put my hands around that. And the reason why I chose that is instrumental in the work that I did that. I successful and it's also grounded in research every what four five years. There's this study that does about what are the best organizations doing in the space. And how does that compare to everyone else and it gives you a real appreciation for what you need to be doing right. The distinction there and his reflection on this. Was You know Chad. Yeah I've done training from all the different organizations right. I've been in product management longtime. I've never seen something that is as wide breath and as integrated as this Body knowledge that covers all the things that you really need to know. So what I'd like to do to build on that there's two elements one is going to be China. Our Program in China is going to be teaching at the University of Pittsburgh Environ January. So let me let me start with my personal program. I teach a course I in the technical title is managing medical device. RND right but I use the PEDIA may body of knowledge approach as my textbook. Because when I looked at what I'm trying to do with these graduate students who are pursuing a master's of science and bioengineering. I I I WANNA give them the full breadth of understanding of what it is to develop new products and the PDA body of knowledge is the guidebook is as a wonderful resource. So I use it personally might textbook as far as China. There's not a better example when you were talking earlier about. PM Am I and project management and Pedia. May We have a wonderful program. I've been twice to China to be representing Pedia. May It was is our former chair. Alan Anderson it really got the program going and we are certifying thousands of Chinese folks who have a PM so they were project managers but now literally the government of China wants to move up the value you chain. They WANNA be innovators. They don't WANNA be simply low. Cost manufacturing companies in a country. That just can only make cheap product. They want want to innovate and so they've turned -pedia may as their partner in developing a certification program. So if you WANNA be a product manager in China China you need to get your n. p. which is our revocation and we have literally trained thousands and thousands of Chinese and it grows every a year so I think it's a wonderful example of this differentiation and the move up if you WANNA call it. The value chain from project management into product management innovation. And we're doing it in China in spades. I think it's really interesting. How PD may is in? A sense has always been international nationalization but exporting what has been known as the US has capability dominance in product management to other places and China paid attention to that right an open the doors to this just as they did two PM. I sometimes goes well. Can I also add the global nature on our former tair. He's a key week he's from New Zealand. So for the last three years our chairpersons been the New Zealander so I agreed read the PDF roots are in the US but it would be complete underestimation of us to think of us as a US only organization. Yeah I I do. Think the recognized dominance in at least the area of product management has been kind of US base. Because when I talked to other people in other countries they talk about well. You guys have so much experience in that. How do we get that experience to? And this is one way. And that's awfully kind of a wakeup call. I think for product managers. If you're listening to this now certification. Should I think historically has not made a big difference in our industry frankly. I very rarely see job. Announcement saying some kind of certification is desired but if if we have thousands and thousands every year of product managers in China getting certified. It's going to start making more of a difference and it's something just to look into frankly clearly the value to me. The value of many people that have helped train for specifically for the certification isn't really getting that certification right. It's not the piece. The papers not magical but learning that body of knowledge learning the framework man if there was big light bulb moments. That went off for me as I was doing that personally. And I had the pleasure of helping to co train on that body of knowledge at last year's conference of you and I were that and I assured just my journey with that too and said when I learned about this. That was huge. I suddenly put together the pieces that I've been doing for the last ten years that I didn't really know how they fit and there were other people in the room that came up to me afterwards and said you know. lightbulbs would offer me too during the training today that I never made these connections before it was just really powerful. Really good so let's talk about the benefits associated associated with a so if people want to check out the professional organization lots of free resources available and of course it is a professional association. If you're a paid member when you get access to other things to just what's involved in those benefits I really WanNa go instead of going down into the dark details of everything everything when I reflect on my time with.

"Hi, right. What a pleasure to talk to you. I am a first time caller longtime listener and what you're telling everybody's exactly. Correct. And Trump is doing the right thing being being experienced businessmen, thirty years doing international trade with China. I can tell you business is already have these things factored into their business. Plans the terrorists, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait have what things factored into their business plans? The existing trade agreements. Well, they have they have terrorists figured in there and never watch. Well that affect your negotiations. These companies have long term agreements with other companies so that the praises won't change for one two three even four five years. So you're saying that because the factors in all of these companies trading with China have been included such as potential tariffs and this stuff that you're, you're saying that these tax increases drive bys talking the new increased prices. We're not gonna see for years because they're operating on contracts made way in advance and still. Right, exactly, correct. Yes. That's exactly right. Well, it makes it makes what will let me just ask you this play devil's advocate. These contracts have been made, and there in force, these companies are talking about importing Chinese products now, new tariffs on them wants to say that Chinese are going to continue to honor those contracts and not tell these companies, hey, if you wanna keep doing MRs Tara and renegotiate Newton again with, with these tariffs included, what's to stop the calms doing that, that business. You know, there's other countries that can make stuff Microsoft buy stuff from China. Apple, but they combined us for to. Some. Yeah. The Chinese products are attractive for a lot of reasons. Well deals with Chinese manufacturing, their labor costs are much less than they would be the United States, manufacturing things. But that does make sense if existing agreements between companies here that import CHAI com made goods are enforced and enforced for another two to three years, then whatever's happening here will not show up until in probably never because this is going to get solved. At one point now, you're going to see in the media, and I've already seen it which is why I am passing this on. You're already seeing some of these scare tactics stories in the drive-by media why you know what? These terrorists may be permanent. Why we may have a new round of permanent trade war status with the Chinese. I saw that same people that told us the economy of Barack Obama was the new normal one percent economic growth United States, greatest days behind this, get used to it gang, we didn't really deserve all that robust economic activity in the past.

"Whole hardly endless in these things absolutely exist, and that show the exist in the United States, but they definitely exist overseas. Do you think that by? By having these getting these cases out there of missing children, the disappearance of makes parents now sort of over parent their kid like are we doing a disservice by not giving our kids freedom now because we're so worried about them being the next Madeleine McCann. I am relentless in in my job, which is to protect my children. I will not apologize for that. And that way, and I think that many of these documentaries like -ducted in plain sight and leaving Neverland that and I've had the privilege of talking to the directors and producers of some of those films, and I've said the same thing to them that I think that it has been hugely important for those films to be shown because we need to remember how important it is to pay attention to the people in our children's orbit, and who you know, where they go because we need to protect children. So I will not apologize for that. And the truth is is that Hirsch chief fit the profile. File for a trafficking ring. She's she's a white three year old almost four year old girl. It's awful. But it's the truth is that that there's there's a tier system, and she sort of hit the fit the profile, and she was targeted and there were people that were taking photos of the children that ocean club. So I I don't think that having money still go to the fund will upset people and the other part to your question is I if I were the parent I would try to keep that secret as long as possible because right? It was suggested to me that Natalie Holloway may have been hod like track marks, and you know, had been subjected to awful things. And so if someone is taken and they have been under drugs for like four five years and they've been abused. It's gonna take a long time for them. Unwind. This is not like an aerial Castro situation where five girls live in Detroit in a home. This is these are peep, women and young men who have is slaves a transported from country to country, and and and been slaves, and it would take a lifetime to get over that. So I don't know what the timeline is for for us to know what has happened, but I have to trust that their parents and the mental health professionals that are working with them. We'll know the answer to that. It's just so scary to even think about you know, when you were talking about the perfect profile of like, and Madeline McCann really hit it, you know, because in my mind from what I've seen in the cases that we've covered at least Martinez murderer and the stuff that I read in the news is that you kind of want to get them young. So you can have them for a long period of time her being three, you know, you could have her for fifteen years before she's a full adult. A three year old girl is going to start to forget about her mother and her father and her siblings in shorter. Periods of life. Right. And this is how how it should be. You know, that's especially officially today's age of just you know, it almost seems like these these types of captures would have been easier twenty years ago to pull off. But now social media, you know, I don't know it seems like especially if you're going to three year old. Okay. They're not gonna fight back. Probably not gonna say anything, you can manipulate them in any way. But almost like stealing, you know, an eighteen year old. It's kinda like how could you possibly keep that quiet? So it's such a disgusting. I think people would be surprised to know how easily it is. I've reasons, but Amy Bradley who disappeared from the cruise ship, you know, eighteen years ago, remember, Amy Riley up. I believe she's still alive. I think that she was taken into sex trafficking. And I think that she probably. Feel some sort of shame and doesn't know how to get out of it because in the process of surviving. She may have had to do things in order to to stay alive..

But do you buy that they're going to be patient with him considering what we just talked about about their kind of big plans considering LeBron is it'd be thirty four in like two weeks like how much patients can you have with someone like that? Erma tell you like this. If there's a deal on the table where you have to England to get a better player or a better package because you know, that lebrons time is running out in the next four five years. And if you have to wait for five years for Brandon Ingram with the object of the game for right now is to win. Now, you know, maybe not this year or if they can possibly swing it. But anything can happen in this league. You know, you're not gonna wait on a player when you have a direction of trying to win. Now, if they feel like as development is not going faster. They would like it to go. He could be dealt easily. Now when you were in Boston you guys had Rondo as a young guy. Now, he kind of fit with what you guys were doing this just seems like an odd fit when he's on the floor. Lebron like the numbers of crazy when he's on the floor LeBron as opposed to off the floor. He's much better. He's more himself. I guess when he's not on the floor. The brian. What would you do schematically there? Would you try to stagger? Their minutes, would you potentially? Bring him off the bench to maximize his potential and get him confidence. You know, you gotta figure out how to make it work because big about the in the situation where Rondo Rondo was a guard when you see Ingram, you know. He's developing yourself away praises if he's a star player. You know, it's not like he has a defined role. Right now. It's not like saying you have a Concorde row. K count. Core is a shooter Abram is needs the ball in his hands. So you know, that kind of contradicts what you're doing wetland, Ron whatever same time. If you're in a situation where they know they're not gonna wear right now, you plan as much as possible to develop them because maybe you need him as a tray piece or he made the to that player sooner than later.

Brian definitely I don't know if they fail under under bad blood as a, but I know as soon as as early as the summertime this past summer I've seen them hanging out at SP's parties and hanging out together.
