I May Never Wear A Watch Again
"Look down and work from. Homes have changed a lot of behavior over the course of twenty twenty and for me. One of the big ones was not wearing my watch because on day. One of lockdown. I took my watch off and didn't put it on a gain for another forty seven days. Even when i went out to the supermarket on those rare occasions. I still had the clock in the car. And i had the clock on the phone. So i didn't really need the watch because also at that time time didn't really matter. I'm there as long as it takes doesn't really matter but even when time did matter i had a clock on my tv on my computer on my phone. I had enough clocked devices. Timing devices in my life. That i didn't really feel the need for the watch. And of course also i've a recent months i've started wearing my garmin fitbit as i like to call it and you know these smart watches. These activity tracking devices are redefining. What we need from a watches well and it makes me wonder what happens to the apple. Watch i mean gammon. Don't call is a watch. They do have some devices that i think they call it a watch. I'm not actually sure but is apple going to rebrand or just like the phone. They going to hang onto that phone branding because the iphone of course is much more than just a phone just like the apple watch is much more than just a watch but what i really start thinking about is. Why do we ever need to purchase a conventional. Watch anymore as a piece of jewelry as a fashion statement. Maybe but then. Why does it need to watch. Maybe it could just be some sort of bracelet or something else. I don't know. I've just been thinking a lot about timing devices lately. I've been thinking a lot about the watch and its current iteration. Do we need your kids. Grow up wearing a watch. I remember when i was ten years old. That was the time we got the watch. The hands on it as we used to call it because up until then we had cheap digital watches. But when you turn ten in our family you got to watch from granddad. Which is the old analog windup. Watch that we got but i wonder is the next generation. Is this current generation of kids going to grow up with a watch or not. What do you think just curious. Let me know in the comments below already. That is it for today. I do thank you for your time and we'll be back again tomorrow

"This is my garmin vivo. Smart four or as i like to refer to it my garmin fitbit and i'm not even kidding either. I do call it my garmin fitbit and if you don't believe me. Richardson jumping here. We had a call yesterday. And we're speaking about it. And i referred to it as my garmin fitbit because to me. It's a garmin device that functions like a fitbit and so in that context. I think about who's won the battle of the brains who has won the battle for the mind of the consumer me. In the area of fitness trackers activity trackers most would probably say. The gunman is one. Because let's face it. I bought the product. But i would argue that. Fitbit is actually one because even though i weighed these device every day i still think about it and even referred out loud as my fitbit and so then i think about why is that is it because fitbit was the first brand really in this space. At least the first brand that i knew is it because gammon was in now the category of products and has evolved into Into these fitness tracking devices in recent years. Because certainly in my mind the first gamma device. That i have owned was a gps. Which i had in the car with me before we had phones and gps is in the car is it because maybe that fitbit is actually just a cool name because fitbit kind of says what it does on the ten whereas gammon really. Doesn't i think in reality. it's a combination of all those things. And so then you think about if i'm trying to create a brand that really resonates that survives the stains over the long period. Then i need to think about doing a cool now. Do i have catch nine. Do i have a name. That does what it says on the team and my specialized in just this category and the first to the mind of the consumer not necessarily the first mock it mind you but the first brand to establish myself in the mind of the consumer or am i like gammon having different jones in different situations. Which don't get me wrong. Gammon had to do because the gps market obviously went away for them so they had to find another consumer product. And that was this. And so i think when you're building your brand you need to think about all those things because no matter how much money you spend on promotion and advertising later on if you have an established yourself in the mind of the consumer i by having a cool product the riott name The the right category the right specialization. Then i think you're going to have trouble even just spending all that money still not necessarily going to get the so ask yourself i you winning the battle of the brands or are you better off moving into some other category and then trying to own the minds of the consumer in that space because otherwise you might end up being a garmin fitbit then again. It could just be me. What do you reckon do. Let me know in the comments below. I do thank you for your time. And i will be back again tomorrow..

We've got quite a fight, knowing her hands be standings as they are so at the places don't marry Fitzpatrick in third place. She's just barely holding on in fourth hot on her heels if Gary Gannon and then way at the back of the pack still in seventh is incumbent Maureen Assault, That's the state of play. It can find Number six. Here we go and continuing coverage. Mike Mike Agata hurdling is here. Hello, we're back. This's where 22 big things happen. Everybody's having their own conversations. Obviously one Mary Lou McDonald of Champagne and tell Mary MacDonald In saying one of the front runner is expected to take a seat gets over the line on also working around people. Gary Gonna know jumps into third place was invigorate. Pushing Mary Fitzpatrick out of a winning spot like that it was on the transfer is like a cost and that she never recaptured it. The woman who under our system would have one off the bat, she lost out that is You know? Still hanging on in second to last, but also disheartened is our incumbent, Maureen O'Sullivan, who's expecting to lose and I suppose maybe seven o'clock people started to arrive. She actually invited her campaign staff and volunteers back to her place for Ah Concession party and I said When people came in, I don't want to know anything about the elections. I'll catch up tomorrow. Unknown to me because I was busy with the tea and the drinks and the food. Some of them in the house were still in contact with those over in the RGs. One of those guys was mouth. I did have a sense looking at the numbers and saying when Okay. But if Sounds, then maybe there's a chance.

Their vote is now being cast for their 4th 5th or sixth place choice. A lot of those they start going to Mori known people for years been elected toys previously, so even people who were involved from them along them or to number tree Their votes were still carry on past the Fords and the boys just mauled me on those transfers.

Whats Working Right Now with YouTube SEO
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about what is working right now with Youtube. Seo. So just F- I just reminded for everyone youtube is still the second largest search engine in the world. Again, it's owned by Google. So Neil, what is working right now 'cause with Youtube you've got what about seven hundred thousand subscribers right now. The biggest thing that I found that works with Youtube. Seo like everyone talks about the key words you need to put the keywords in your title you need have attractive thumbnails for CTR's, and that's all the stuff that everyone's doing. It's just like traditional Seo right you know this better than anyone else everyone can modify their Meta tags everyone can create content that's ten minutes long or everyone can write two, thousand, four blog posts but the big trick that I found that really boost your ranking see youtube opposite attritional Google. Seo which traditional Google, CIO, slow, and steady wins the race in Youtube, Seo whoever does really well in the first twenty, four hours of the video being released tends to win the race and you can get your rank is literally the day you pop up the video doesn't have to take months even for competitive terms, it literally be days. The real question is, how hard can you push the video in the first twenty four hours and what I mean by that is, can you do email blasts, push notification blasts and? FACEBOOK MESSENGER blasts, text blasts, anything. You can't get views in the first twenty, four hours. If you get a lot of traction in those views watched the video, they watch other videos on Youtube Bay comment because they liked the video will find is the video starts ranking really high. Yeah. If you think about it I, mean these social media tools are all created by human beings. Right. How do these algorithms work? If you think about Lincoln if I post something Lincoln or someone's share something with me, they're always sharing with. The bunch of people want a bunch of people to like it. They want a bunch of your comment. They want a ton of engagement initially, right? That's what these algorithms looking for. They're looking for the initial rush. So you're lucky enough you're fortunate enough to have audiences across the MLS. If you have push notifications to Neil's point earlier, that's good for you. Now here's the flipside tonight. Love you might be saying, well, what have we don't have an audience while I just spoke to a guy yesterday new you should definitely check. Out This podcast I think you would enjoy it. My spoke to a guy named George Gammon very successful entrepreneur was doing like twenty four million bucks a year in the retired bought of a bunch of real estate and now moved Medellin Colombia. Now in St Bart's but points this he does a really good job of teaching macroeconomics and Learning Economics in college all I did was I went to distinct called the ECON- tutor and he just gave the answers and we all copy the answers and we went into class and We all got a beep is hilarious. My point is I didn't understand much about economics, and then now I'm realizing the current climate, you have to have a really strong understanding of macroeconomic. So this guy went, he's youtube channel. This guy's audience at all from two hundred subscribers is at one, hundred, sixty, five, thousand subscribers now he did it all organically why is he so successful? It's because his level of content nobody's doing anything like that right now nobody's breaking down macroeconomic and making it super simple. It's always like three. Simple steps, right. That's what he does is topics are really good. It's not like he has amazing headlines All the time, and then I found out from yesterday he's like, yeah, I spent about twelve hours on each food. I'm not saying you need to spend twelve hours on each video but the level of your content if you can touch upon things that are hot and explained in a simple way, it becomes very easy to share I learned of him to Robert Q sake the guy that wrote rich Dad Poor Dad. and. Boom Robert Gates money channel boom thirty five thousand subscribers instantly, right. So point is if you don't have an audience, yes, you might have to slog it out a little bit what look this guy went from two hundred to one
Arsenal Crash Out of Europa League
"Kick things off in the League also against Olympiakos. What a dramatic ending to the game but also without one win in Greece. They didn't they make it through. However Olympia with council out in the second half of this game. See say with the go after avenue for what that would take us into extra-time a brilliant goal from Obama fantastic scissor-kick would make one one on the night two one on aggregate. That would be enough but then arriving in the last minute of extra time would score. That would see Olympia Costco through on the away. Goals robot away the late John Through family. And who you put your house on scoring. How did he puts it wide. Also out of the euro per league. We'll talk to the boys in the studio. And let's stop. Shall we Juliana wrong? Jules we know a big heart piece. Your heart isn't ps some of reserved for arsenal gutted. I think it's a tough nut to take forward the the author funds the of the way happened. Obviously with the the late Gore fall got goose and die by Obama young in the last minute of added time of extra time but also let's be honest. It was a poor performance. I think the attitude was no rights. They looked to be complacent. That no Sean Tiger. For the first one seventy five minutes of that game so in the end is the harsh defeat any Sahara eliminatation but also on the night tonight. There was just off the game too much. Who Do you blame more Stevia Pammy late missile David Lewis and he's defending? I think I think at the end of the day we'll mistakes as players and the players led from the mistakes and what dovid Louise didn't do. He didn't learn from his mistake with the first goal. Because you're in zone regardless of the opposition when the ball comes in your area you have to attack the ball. He didn't do it and didn't learn because the bulls flung again at the end of the game and he didn't attack it so at at an absolutely avid louise. It's an ongoing issue. Without defendants said pieces is a problem area for them and Wyoming end score is a great goal and even after all the struggles that you've had in this game he's gray goal and now you're through. All you have to see is the last two minutes of the match. And then that's it you're going to the next round. It wasn't pretty. It was it was. It must have been learning experience for us. And that's the way that I would have spun this whole story. But you're not able to defend properly said peace and then see you guys later take. Here's the other thing. I was here about Arsenal for whatever reason they thought that after winning the first game the first late one nothing that it was it was all done. That's the way they approach is game as if they had already advanced. The truth of the matter is that where arsenal is right now. They're not good enough to be complacent they're not good enough to like energy. They're not good enough to just be a team that is going to show up and you'll say now we just going to play around on. We'll see our way through to the next round. They're not good enough to be doing that. The players know that but the problem is that they cannot find any sort of consistency with their level of play. One day they look good the next day. They don't look so good one they look okay then the next day. Look what the one thing that they've been consistent about is poor defending set pieces Steve. I'll tell ya after the game. Lambasting his defense four goals conceded in last two matches from set pieces. Surely this is something you can work on in the training ground isn't it? I know that we talked about the personnel. The arsenal have and. It's not good enough but surely this is something you can actually physically help with. On a day to day train. You can work on the train and field all day every day seven days a week but if you have players who don't get it and they'll tell you they get but then they step on the field and continue to make the same mistakes and that's exactly what are still have been doing for the last two or three seasons defensively so the comes at time and I've been seeing all year long. The comes a time when it's not about the tactics or the coach. A suburb and Avid Louise. In particular has shown time and time again. He's making mistakes as a set of bike and it's cost and his team and until there's a change until Louise's moved that position and a better players and as you asked me you can walk all day long on an Infield but if you've got players who can't do the job isn't changing Joe's big picture. How big is this defeat for our so considering you up an argument was a great chance to qualify for the Champions League? Yes huge blow. Because of that obviously because that was maybe the easiest way because they can still finish fifth save city are buying for next. Season's Champions League they only four points behind but you would fancy that competition. So that's used blows so she's reforming ties went because he's a proper step back of why you've been trying to do and the resort. That been okay since he took over. There's been some improvement on the on. The field on the field going forward especially attacking wise defensively still issues and he has an address them well enough at the moment and avenue for him. It will be a setback and I think this issue tonight. Psychologically they go again on Monday night in the ETHICA. That's a hell of a tricky game away from home against a team that would have nothing to lose in a cup game in a hosted environments against the team that is playing really well in the lower leagues but also a team that would love that kept Gammon love trying to put more pressure on us on especially after tonight so the next few games will be very important for the where artists are trying to get his plays back on track for Monday.

No one knows, Bill Buckner story. No one can put it into better context. No one has a greater appreciation of his complete and full legacy than the manage on sust now the great baseball writer, Peter gammons. Peter. Thank you for joining us. Thank you charming. Now he was a really special player. I mean it's so sad to see most of the stories about his staff leading with. Well, he's famous for the air when hit remarkable career and made the two thousand seven hundred and fifteen hits but what gets overlooked little bit forgotten. Is he was a great young player with dodgers, 'cause she and Bobby Valentine were to one in the traff? The nineteen sixty eight there were supposed to be the best recruits on US's football team. But he, he tore up his ankle in April of nineteen seventy five and he never walked right again. I'm and back when he was with the Red Sox, and in eighty five eight four eighty five he I those days, I used to go out and go to ballpark and about one o'clock in the afternoon to dress and shag will be pee all the rest, and always astounded me was it was, it would take buck. The two hours to have this. To all the stuff ahead to do ankle, so they could play. And he plays in such pain for so much of this career. There's no question. He were shot. Well, past three thousand hits heady been healthy. And so at that time, though, we didn't have all the analytics, three thousand but you went to the hall of fame, and that injury costed the whole fame, but he's still had a great career and I mean that play with bookie Wilson. It's so it summed up his personality, which is. And I'm not the only one to say this. I know Bobby valentines always said he buys the most competitive person anyone who ever knew ever ever met and that ball so booking. Ray night at for bookie's as looking hits top Brown ball on first he has no chance to be able to get him out. But he sees the quarter of his is Bob Stanley is delayed on the mound. He's not going to get the first so tried to charge scoop it. And then die for the bag and of course, the ball would by a little bounce of hop whereby and Ray night scored. But it was his never I'm like the ball whole right night at third. I'm gonna make that play and got out of the city and it's just that's was what he's time where USC is they still win. And we're roommates at SE and 'cause they were they were in the I believe there in the football, dorm, or something like that. And they, they would go out and work out every day, but they would race every day Bobby Valentine 'cause fly he got hurt. I think he was playing fraternity football game where he messed up before what happened to him in the major leagues loss. Lot of speed I think so, but they would go out every time Valentine beat him every race they ever ran. But every. Time. Buck with a. All right. Well, we'll be back here tomorrow and this won't happen again. I'll be mile any believe it. And that's just the way he was. I mean, there was a time in the minor leagues when Buckner Valentine and David Lopes collided. I'll fly ball in short right-field. And so he hurt his jaw, and they took x rays of them. Two days later found have broken draw and already played two games of the broken jaw. So the dodgers told probably sorta as manager, don't play the sky for the month. He missed one dam was back in the lineup mortgage. Aw. And that's just who he was. I know if, if you sat Valentine down on the couch, you could probably tell hours of stories about all the crazy things he did as a as a competitor. But and he was it was. Yeah. Somebody said to me the other day. Is that your main members? No, you know what he came back to Boston nineteen ninety the Red Sox wanted to go you went to the angels, and then the royals and he came back here. Red Sox in nineteen ninety and I was sitting behind home plate with scout front of mine, and he was here bowl against the angels to write feel you know, that corner in right field, a fly ball over Florida washes head and the that's low fence and short hop that fence but clo- couldn't stop and over the over the fence and got stuck underneath the seat. And the ball rolled back and I sent to Gord liking my friend, sitting next to mess inside the park home runs. Oh, I said, I work up Dante Bichette, centerfield, just standing, there was arms cost watching those anybody to go and get the boat. What else still see for the list around the basis of dove across home plate for I believe it was his last hit in the major league in my, so that's my fun. This memory of -pecially is a matter of how torn up his ankle was, how old he was he sills voices way around the basis to score the run. We're speaking with the great Peter gammons about the great Bill Buckner who died this week at the age of sixty nine of Lewy body dementia, and, and Peter, I gotta say, I mean, I got to know Bill Buckner a little bit later life. We did stories on the twentieth anniversary of eighty six and the twenty fifth anniversary. He was so gracious. He was a man of so much honor and so much dignity. And he had if such a big reputation the game but I was surprised by just how big the reaction was dissuade to his death. And it's because it's such a rich story. It's such a poignant story, and, and there's something, of course, sad or unfortunate about such a great. Player associated with that moment in particular. How do you try to frame, the legacy of Bill Buckner? I thought that the fans in Boston very well when the Red Sox brought him back in two thousand eight there was over day. There were celebrating the championship of two thousand seven but out from the opening luck there, wall came Bill Buckner they introduced him and he came, he walked forward to for pro the first pitch and the ballpark's good. It was. Just a deafening applause for him. And he broke down and cried. He was coming in. And it was a tremendous way moment. I mean they were Bill Russell was there, probably, or was there, you know, Red Sox heroes from different periods. I think he asked us there. And, and but there was this moment of, you know, hey, you still he was so great for them for the two years. And, you know, the one thing that they would all say John McNamara was criticized for not from Dave Stapleton in first base. But, but there was so much a part of that eighty sixteen that came back and beat the angels. There were down three to one at one point, and that series and came back on the and, and then he was such a part of the World Series team that. Say wonderful, but there was something really special about Bill Buckner. And when you were around him in the clubhouse, at two thirty in the afternoon and listened to stories realize what he was like he was so much apart. Not gonna forever in my mind. Remember, it's doing the right thing because that was how much respect but there, have no matter what it was right Evans, or, or Jim rice, or whoever they he was regarded as just he, he has he has the presence of the great player, and they knew it was almost impossible for him to go out every day. I mean, people used to say how the world is guy go out and play in the field at first, but he played pretty well. And you know, it was just remember Dwight Evans one day saying somebody, it's, you know, some people have greater wills and other than he was one Peter gammons the hall of fame baseball writer on the gray. Bill Buckner died this week at the age of sixty nine Peter means a lot to us that you come on, and share your memories of Bill Buckner. Thank you for joining us. Thank you very much.

"Lisa Gammon from purple social advertising director, welcome to social pros. Let nature delighted to have you here. What a fascinating company purple. Is. It seems like it just burst on the scene fully formed. I know that's not true. But it sure seems that way and you have been doing some unbelievable stuff. Now, I'm gonna t- what a little praise you won the most effective monetization award out of six million, different advertisers from Facebook at Facebook disruptors summit. So to say that you have the most effective monetization of any Facebook advertiser. That's kind of a high bar declare. I congratulations second tells a little bit about that. That was definitely occur highlight for me, and as just based off of our innovative advertising tactics that we've implemented through Facebook and just a mazing recognition in front of very Sav. Vy and accomplished group appears for that to happen. The destructors which is the top point zero zero two percent of all advertisers are invited to that event and thrilled to be able to have the stage purple because many times in your career doing really an amazing things that maybe it's an previously as that running events company called the Colorado, and it was a Inoue's dying career and seeing amazing things but in an industry that was declining. So anyways, it's you don't get that recognition. Sometimes you also try things, and they don't work, and you don't get the performance that follow with my team was an awesome way. To celebrate a really risky campaign that we launched with them to remember that we need to keep this in mind for the next big gross. That we take that doesn't succeed that we don't get recognition for performance. Well, you mentioned that because you know, even somebody who's accomplished as you are. Social media advertise and spending a substantial amount of money on social media advertising. Totally know what's what's going to work until until you try it. It's not certainly learned some lessons. We'll talk about that here in the show. But, but I'm really glad you mentioned like, hey, not every campaign is going to succeed. You got to give it a shot and see what happens. Right, right. Yeah. Think a lot of times it's hard to keep that commitment. There's a risky campaign that we knocked off. There's like the final hours. There's a lot of people getting cold feet and. Create. It's crazy. Putting in? Why was it so risky? What do you say that? It was risking weird about it. So we got a partnership with Tim, and Eric I'm not sure if you guys campaign, the purple boys, and basically gave them free rein to create a content, and it was a six episodes of purple boys, which is just two characters content that Tim and Eric put together the only boundaries that we gave him was a want people to know that were purple and that we're mattress company other than that like run run wild very out there. It was outlandish humor. It's very internet very much made for this like, Tim and Eric fans. What was scary was that in order to actually scale this and see strong reach you're going to need to try to reach a broad means what happened, and there's a Heddon see that people would just would reject who these guys are. This is the word. Yeah. Yeah. But people recognize stood out in the news feed. It was it was actually ended up being six pieces of episodes two to three minutes long. And then each episode had over twenty assets that went along with it. And they were just made for Facebook made for mobile is basically Facebook campaign on steroids and with those assets, or we also had different audiences and copy made for the different platforms of platform that we had over fifteen thousand variations that we tested with. In the final hours. Like, maybe we should actually just target the Tim and Eric fan base. Like this before for sure gonna be testing this and see what happens like that. That's what we've been planning and prepping to do so that's gonna do to to our great surprise. We saw like are broader and interest targets perform, so not only from the performance, but also from like an engagement. So that allowed us to not only reach people at twenty four percent, lower CPM cost at our spend levels significant very significant. But the performance we thought it was going to be like a branding play campaign. But we saw performance follows. That's it was really surprising, even my book account managers..

"It could be a woman or child that's come from America or from England, Europe, married into a different religion and a different culture, Pakistan, Gammon Saudi, and the challenge being kidnapped and taken there. And again, you go into rescue to bring them back. So it really different. These sound like fascinating stories. Could you take us through one that particularly sticks out in your mind as being particularly Harry situation? Probably Pakistan. I'm guessing we'd gone to rescue a twenty three year old woman who had married into that culture. She'd met him at university here. He'd said, let's go on holiday six weeks, meet my family of she went and. Six months later, mom still hadn't heard from her. And then one day mom got a note drop through ho Doering Birmingham. An it said, mom, please help me on being held hostage mom contact us. We went out to Pakistan to sit. We could find out. We lot of surveillance broke into the villa one night, so I could talk to her on broken. I got to speak to her. She was absolutely shocked oversea because as woman, you know about a call for on a head dressed in black coming through a bedroom window. I explained from her mum. She was handcuffed to an. I'm bedstead. She told me she was three months pregnant shoes being right and stalled and beaten, and I should. We will come back for him. We will get you out. So we then had to try and work away together out. Unfortunately, for us, we go to find Cole. I don't know who it's from. I ninety sa- mites about three days later, say get out, they know who you are and Benazir Bhutto. I'd recognize me because I looked after when she was over here and she'd recognize me in country and thought she knew why I was there was to rescue somebody because do I'd had a conversation with her about it company is before. So we then had to go and Stoughton a villager in the day. And we did that by paying taxi driver to ram the gates. We got her. We got far as we could innovate, and then we had to halt for across the mountains into India that took us three days because we're trying to quite fit. But here I've got a pregnant twenty three year old who's been beaten installed and go to pair of flip flops on our fate and says to meet. She was the real hero. So we were being chased by the Pakistan army. We wanted into Kashmir by accident. And of course, the Kashmiri rebels were them firing at the Pakistan army, and we were still caught in the crossfire. So they wouldn't shooting us thank God, but we managed to get out and then we go into India and we go to home from there. It sounds like your job has required you at times to do things that aren't actually legal in that country. How do you juggle that requirements of adhering to the loyal or adhering to local laws while still trying to go in and rescue someone that needs rescuing clearly Justice, it's their new way. Docking news is Justice. Nobody has the right to still somebody until them you're now going to stay here in your going to do this. You know, it's not right. Everybody has the right to be where they want to be. Some people would argue that's the role of the police, though your not part of the police dry. It's not a row for the place because in this country, an issue, a member of the hyg agreement, then they will go and get your child back all your person by however, most countries like Pakistan and the Middle East are not signed up to the hike agreement. And unfortunately there police are so corrupt. Upped, they will take bribes. Tell me about Iraq then how did you find yourself in that country in Iraq? Again, it was some oil workers upset day. They accused him of cheating called. And the next thing is the son of Saddam Hussein. Yes, that's the son of Saddam Hussein. And the next thing they were thrown in into a cage and and so it was out job was to try and get them out. So how did you do that are spent a long time wearing a Boca and begging on the streets opposite where we knew they were being kept in. So I could watch the Gulf movements. See your job obviously involves a lot of personal risk..
