"Which you don't any sports fan that's followed any sports for especially basketball for a significant amount of time. Hairline fractures in the foot and careers. Yeah. And so if you can see the beginning, maybe some evidence of this. I don't care how long you sit out. You sit out and get that taken care of. Hairline fracture in that in the lower extremity. It's a cracked windshield. In that, technically, I can run on it. I can make it work for now, but a cracked windshield turns into a shattered windshield very quickly. Or like a chip in the windshield turns into a crack really quickly. You want that done because it doesn't take a hard bend. It takes an angle. You know, it takes just the right pressure in the right spot. And you want to make that happen, especially as you get closer into conference play. And Yukon's case quite honestly, tournament season. Really? I mean, I feel like they're going to be able with that thruster. I don't think the team with Kristin Williams knows in the dota and miss Gatorade page beckers is very worried about how they're going to be able to adjust, but once we start hitting tournament play and they want to find yet another deep run in them, obviously, fudge is going to be a huge player, but it's that idea of they luckily can afford what their depth to weight that out pretty much as far as they need to, and they just have the reason. I would hate for them to have to do any red shirting in this case. I think they'd be dumb unless this turns into a worse injury than we thought. For some reason, but yeah, there are no necessary hurry to make that happen. So if we don't see her until, even February, I think I just think that's smart. You might as well play that safely because that's the next phase of your franchise. That's the next, you know, there's a thousand reasons why you don't want to go too heavily on that. And that injury, what you called on it is exactly that. I've seen, I've seen people have that injury, hobble off, you're going to that doesn't look good. Then they come right back out and you're like, oh, maybe they're fine and then within another couple games, the next thing you know you don't seem for a season and a half. Right. Wouldn't surprise me. So let's not do that. Let's stay on this Yukon theme that has come up a couple times. And can we talk about Candace Parker's comments? USA basketball? Let's chat about this because here's the thing. We if you come into women's basketball, it primarily NCAA women's basketball. People really do tend to fall in one of two camps. You are either pro ucon love Yukon or you are hate Yukon through and through. And I think that the four of us land pretty squarely in the middle of that. We're not super pro ucon and we're not against Yukon. We try to stay really unbiased when it comes to when it comes to this team. And so I think that because of that unique position that we have of we're not crazy one side or the other, it's been a really interesting. Journey to kind of look at this whole USA basketball Candace Parker situation from a distance. And finally getting a little bit of some commentary a little bit more clear from Candace recently. Steve, I'm curious what were your thoughts as far as how she broke down what her interactions were her disappointments and her attitude toward the whole USA basketball Gino arriana situation as it took place initially. One thing I'll say on top of this and I'm going to delicately point this out. Kim's Parker is an expert level communicator. And what I mean by that is she has a meet a way to deliver her thoughts in a way that it's not just eloquence for eloquent sake, so I'm not just saying, you know, it's coming in and smooth big words. She knows how to deliver a message and a story in a way that helps you truly understand what it's feeling like. She can emote that really well. And it goes beyond what she's saying. Candice interviews are ones that are like, you can not just read the quote and never just read the quote, read the article, both canvas, you gotta read the article. You gotta watch the video, you gotta see the non verbals, you expressions. Something I appreciated about what she pointed out. And by the way, I don't consider anything that was said as like a slam on genome. And that's one thing is like, I don't see this as beef necessarily of this moment. Other than to say, I think this is just some I really appreciate the honesty of it. It's just someone really being honest about the situation. It's refreshing as a sports fan. Who has to sit through the vapid workaround phrases all the time of what is that supposed to mean or that's what a publicist told you to say to just simply have someone ask canis Parker tell me about what's going on with Gina or Yama and she says, I don't like him, he doesn't like me. We don't like each other. It's honestly refreshing to hear that because guess what? That's life. That happens. You have people you don't get along with and this is a different case of they've seemingly never had to necessarily work together. I think the only thing she said that may have come off as heat is to say, she says, I'm of the philosophy of I can work with people I don't get along with. You know, it's an idea of like if I don't like you that's fine, but I can work with you. We can make a professional relationship Evan. Even the way you can construe that to say, she's saying Geno's not willing to do that and I am. I don't know. But that's one thing that I appreciate about this is to say like I didn't come off of this being like she's slamming Geno and saying what a terrible guy is. I think it's her simply saying, listen, I don't like the dude, he doesn't like me. I think you can all understand why we don't like each other. These are two teams. I come from the place he probably hates the very most. And he has she even threw some shade. She even threw a little bit shade saying he's used to having championships. And she says, in my four years at Tennessee, they.

"Attention to in that I think you have a hand to be a little more aggressive in pushing for bridging this gap that's needed for doing it for quite a while. Yeah, no, I'd agree with that. And that's where I think page makes a lot of sense. She's a big huge name. She's marketed everywhere. And I understand that some people actually turn that negatively, pages done nothing but promote like and do a great job representing what everybody wants her to represent when she's when she's put on the spot when she's in front of a microphone. She says the right things she promotes the right things. And so I'm excited for what it means for page to get this opportunity, but also that as you said, I hope that this opens up a lot of opportunities for a lot of different players across the board. I think that your comments on it making an impact on potentially helping with players not having to go overseas is frequently huge. I was about to make that same point. It's like we'll never may never have to play for you MMC, may never have to go overseas, can I have a very dynamic curse? May not have to do that. And I hope that she's just step one because where the WNBA may not be able to afford it quite yet. They might not be able to quite get this salaries to where they need to be to keep players home. Maybe these types of opportunities, these sponsorship deals that can start in college can help out with that can provide because these players enter into the WNBA. Unable to have made any money prior to this year. Everybody coming into the W, this was it. This was what you're making. And you're starting out at the $50,000 range. And in a lot of areas of the world, or excuse me of the country, that's just not really going to cut it. That's tough. And so then you got to add a lot more on the sponsorships. And I think that seeing Gatorade step into this space as well as so many others into the college space. I'm hoping that that continues forward into the and grows the women's game to where we're seeing more and more sponsorship opportunities in the WNBA. My hope is that a lot of coaches aren't double sweating this and are being supportive of this because supporting this actually is going to grow the women's game so much more because if we start to regularly see top level players, they may not all get the Gatorade contract, but a lot of them are going to have a cocktail of contracts of an Al contracts that are gonna add up to a good amount of revenue. If we regularly see these top level players, these elite level players pulling in a 6 figure income, what you're gonna see is players who regularly can play a traditional schedule. What that needs is you could afford to expand the schedule. And you can afford to promote that expanded schedule in an expanded playoffs. That opens your room to more easily expand the league as far as rosters and team them. And team number. So if you want to go from 12 to 16, like you have that ability much easier when you're able to make this happen because you're just able to invest in bodies and health a lot more effectively with this in tow. And it's insane because when you look at what page is pulling in and you look down those names, you know, look, what's taurasi pulling in if this was an opportunity for her. What's stewie pulling in a later delegate pulling in, Asia Wilson just got a hero's welcome. In San Francis, South Carolina at a recent football game. You know, you do your typical here's an alumni they wave at Maya more. She was given like a gladiator esque roar from the crowd. She's a goddess and to being on that campus. What was Asia Wilson going to get for NAL contracts? In the state of South Carolina alone and it's that idea of like, those are players and a lot of that it's funny except I brought up a bunch of players that don't play receipts but those are a lot of players that if they never had the worry of having to go overseas worry about that off season piece, could we have made this investment because we have made these changes a lot sooner, potentially, because I think that when I first heard this NIL situation rolling out, one big thought that I had was this is going to impact the women's game at a professional level in a much bigger way than people to realize. It goes beyond money and it really goes beyond like what these people are going to be able to promote in their day to day. And I'm a huge fan of that. On top of that, in the off season, you're able to have traditional off season experiences as opposed to having to go play somewhere else to play for a second team, you know, page Becker's launches her own academy. You know, like, these types of players down the road when they hit a certain level of super duper stardom can open camps and put a higher investment into these programs. I mean, you look at some great WNBA players who supported the mamba academy in its time and were there to coach with Kobe Bryant and with that team and.

"Said that. Hold up, hold up. It sounds like we're professional podcasters. Those types of transitions. Those types of transitions and the amount of just expertise that we show on a regular basis. We're talking right now. We start podcast. We should start a podcast. That was just like hanging out. About stuff. Yeah. We should do that. Just funny. Gatorade has signed their very first NCAA student athlete officially signing page Becker's to an NIL contract where she will be working with them and I'm excited. I'm excited that the first student athlete to sign with Gatorade is a women's basketball player. Yeah. They could have men's basketball at any level. Yeah. Which is awesome. Yeah. Very exciting. It could have easily been a men's basketball, could have been a football player, you know, any anything like that. And yet here she is, you know, it's page. It's page back. You're citing the NIL deal with Gatorade. Which is pretty sweet. I don't know the details as far as money and whatnot. However, from what her statement, I'll just go ahead and read a quick little portion of the statement that she gave, she says it was a blessing to in Gatorade player of the year in high school and now it's truly surreal to be an official member of the Gatorade family. I know this is just the beginning of our partnership and I can't wait to get to work with Gatorade to drive impact in the community and on the women's game, which makes me just really, really excited to hear that that not only are they signing with her, but that a big portion of this is going to go toward pushing the women's game and furthering women's basketball across the board. So that just got me really excited. Steve, what were your initial gut reactions when you saw this news come across? Maybe Twitter or whatever. Honest? Realistic first response. If I'm being 100% honest, is where does one buy a Gatorade Letterman jacket? So fairly fresh. As far as it's overall impact, I mean it is huge. Page for one thing. And they're definitely a lot of people that are going to have opinions on specifically page getting the spotlight and let's hope that this love spreads and isn't just kind of a one shot deal to the recognizable stars of current times. And I totally get that because I've had a lot of people call out like where does Leah Boston's opportunity? And that is valid of a discussion. I will say that pages an example should be a positive because knowing that the WNBA salary structure is going to be a gradual improvement. It's not something that where it's set right now it can it can peak just at a point, you're now looking at a player in page backers that will potentially be pulling in a $1 million. Before she ever touches a WNBA Jersey and yeah, normally, I'm not big on, oh money is metrics, but that's a big deal. For an NAL and I think it will not be the necessary stop to that investment. I think you're going to see that with a strong handful of players and my hope is that we see an example of how easily you can invest to bridge the gap as far as that side of the world works in salaries and whatnot. So I think that that's a huge message right off the bat. I think the other piece to it. It's really going to be intriguing how this I guess this necessary NAL structure works out. Because it's that idea of, I don't know if any of us really fully yet know what this all means. What are these people? Is it just advertising type of promotional sponsorship? Is it, you know, what exactly is that going to entail for someone like page, but I think one big idea there is, you are now going to be able to put faces of women's basketball well. I mean, you know, Gatorade is an organization that's very, very aggressively dedicated and to supporting young players. Youth basketball. And for her to be the first face of that means you're going to see those faces, you're going to inspire young people to play the game. And because of that, I think, like I said before, it can't be overstated, we need to see honestly some more black players as faces of that. So my hope is that we don't wait another year before the next best player in women's college basketball is given this opportunity. I'm hoping we're close to someone else. Whether it's le Boston, whether it's as he flood like whoever it is because I think that that's an important piece to it. Just my opinion. But yeah, overall it's exciting. It's very cool. It's very cool to hear your name like that. The level of companies that we've seen do this and IL thing have just been hysterical. I mean, everything from Gatorade to AT&T to local taco places. Jeannie's turned up hut, you know, in Cincinnati or whatever. You know, like all kinds of different organizations groups. And so we, you know, all these all these tech and crypto companies, I still don't know what crypto is. I kind of don't want to know. And so it's been an interesting case for it, but I'm intrigued at the prospect of it. I would hope that it speaks to a larger value in a larger scale down the road. And I hope it's something that the WNBA as an organization is paying.

"Months going round and very pointless circles trying to come up with a way to quote unquote advantage Gatorade. Like, and by the way, you know, if there was a miraculous potion that could make an athlete jump higher or run faster, I think we would have known by now, you know, it was like the science team kept saying, you know, like there isn't anything. And then, finally, because we spent a ton of time doing ethnographic work with consumers and just really going deep on what are the need states of athletes, we actually quickly found that, well, the core consumer of this product still loves it, still consumes it in the same proportion that they used to, but they have more needs than just hydration. They need energy before they go on the field, they need recovery, like protein recovery when they finish. And so before long, we started seeing this vision around this idea we ended up calling the G series, which was products were before during and after exercise. And we basically created the suite of products that we then bought to market the following March. This was the idea that you would drink this before your workout, this during your workout in this for recovery. Exactly. Was there nervousness about trying that out? Yes, because so from a math standpoint, like how we sold it in both internally and to the retailers, was essentially, you know, if you think about powerade and Gatorade, they were battling over a call at $6 billion piece of the pile. Yet when we did this need state work, we realized that the size of before during and after athletic activity is like 70 billion. So we're like, if we can get a slice of that action, there's real growth to be had in those hills, you know? And so that was how we built the business case. But naturally, all of the retailers are like, but I just want my Gatorade to grow. I don't care. I just want my Gatorade to grow, because that's what I'm used to, you know. And they kept saying, why aren't you doing more for the base product and we kept saying, trust us? It's like all of the boats are going to be lifted by the ocean coming up with this, but you framing. And it means we can frame the category differently and pull ourselves away from the cheap kind of competitors. And the thing that to this day blows me away is like we launched and I want to say March or April of 2010. The speed at which the turnaround started to happen still blows my mind because how fast was it? It was literally within about a week of the campaign and the products getting out. Suddenly, you see it just go to flat, then a little bit of growth and then day in day out. It was growing, and we would just look at the numbers every day. It's a miracle, you know. And I think it was such a lesson to me that because we had bought meaningful innovation and given the consumer a reason to wake up and look at the category again, they all started buying base Gatorade again, you know? Yeah. So you were, I guess, eventually promoted to be the president. Okay, right? Yes. That's a big, big job. Yes. I mean, was that right after the success of this campaign? Yeah, it was. So, you know, it was pretty soon after that. And then by this stage, we needed to we knew we needed to sort of reorganize Gatorade globally because it exists in multiple countries and we had shifted the strategy so dramatically in the U.S. that we needed to do the same around the world. So they'd never been a global president role before and I don't think by then I had always had aspirations to do more than marketing. I'd always wanted to be more of a general management kind of role. And so, no, it was a huge, huge step up. There's no question like it was a very scary intimidating role to take on, but I also think by then I had thank God built the support internally because we had had such a success and the 18 months leading up to the turnaround. You know, they had been a lot of naysayers. And so therefore, when our team proved that we were actually on the right track, I think from that point forward, people were like, we're not going to mess with them. They know what they're doing. All right, you are now dead center in the at the top of the C suite. I mean, you know, in this huge multi-billion dollar business, where the buck really now stops with you and I guess the CEO was that was I mean, did everything you do up to that point lead you to be able to say, okay, I got this. I can deal with the stress. Yes. Definitely. I mean, it was stressful. Even even after the business turned, it never stopped being stressful because I think what you've been through such a difficult difficult turn around is that you lie away with one eye open every night worrying that it's going to go back down again because it's a really difficult thing to turn such a big declining business. And so it was incredibly stressful, but I do think that for me particularly because I'd had these early career mistakes. I was like, God, this could be another massive implosion, and it's going to be really public. Yeah. But I think you also know that you will survive. And when you've had tough experiences, like I kind of knew that no matter what I've got my family and we're survivors and I'll figure this out. And so that gives you that sort of calm just to keep going. Someone once told me a leader that I worked for that when you are at the top of an organization in some ways you are always walking down a short plank. That you know, eventually, you're going to be held accountable for something catastrophic. And that in a sense, once you're at the top of an organization, you have to think about the next move, like where's the next lily pad I'm going to do you think there's something to that? I've never heard it said that way, but as you say it, yes, I think that's really right. And I think there's something to be said for just years under your belt. Where you realize that business is cyclical, people's careers as cyclical. And that the person who looks like they're crushing it today is going to have their version of things going down, like the business that's just been valued at a $1 billion is going to have its tough time. You know, there is always going to be the downs that follow the ups and therefore, you know, yes, I think you always have to be aware of picking your lily pads, so to speak. To position yourself in the right place, that said, I would not advocate trying to build a career of just jumping from good opportunity to good opportunity because I don't think that you would I don't think that you would ever learn.

This is wisdom from the top. I'm guy raz. So you get there in this start of what would be the biggest financial crisis in modern history. And what did you, what was your idea? How are you going to turn it around? So what we all thought we would do is literally rebrand it. So if you recall the old Gatorade logo and we shifted to this giant G on the front of the bottles and we did say it used to say Gatorade and it was like a lightning bolt. Yes. Yeah. And then we moved to G and we had this big teaser campaign. What's G and we did a sort of Super Bowl and the whole 9 in early 2009 and we were kind of like we're just going to rebrand it and make it cool and hit for the kids again, you know? And that's going to and that is going to kind of modernize it because it is a nice logo. The G yeah. And so it was like, let's just rebrand it, new logo, G, and that should kind of give it a bit of a kick. Yeah, that was the sort of conventional wisdom. And I think that was all we could do in a short period of time. I mean, there was a lot of pressure to move as fast as we could to change the trajectory on the train on the business. So we launched that. This is the 2009 and I should also mention that the week we like the first G bottles came off the line was the same week I gave birth to my third child, so I'm like, great, I'm a maternity leave or is good, it's all set up to roll. And then literally within 5 or 6 days of these products hitting the shelves, it goes from decline to 10% to 20% like massive declines and massive 20% decline and sales of $5 billion business, you know, so you can do the math. It was a maternity leave and you're just watching the graph just like. Arrow down. Yeah. Were you freaking out? Oh yeah, like within, I mean, I can remember I was on like I was working back to more than 40 hours a week worth of conference calls and everything within a week of having the baby because it was everyone was freaking out. It was like what the hell has happened. And you can imagine the bottles are on the shelves at retail and it's a mix of the old and the new and people couldn't find their products that obviously all the retailers like it's this stupid rebranding that caused it like it was such a kind of cause and effect look to everybody from Wall Street analysts to the retailers yet my team and I who were the marketers behind it, we work closely monitoring social media and the core target that we were going after. And we could tell that the kids were really connecting with us thing. And so it was this very difficult period where everybody in the company everybody except for my little team and my boss were kind of like this is a disaster and we need to reverse the decision. I bet. Several years. So this is a this is like their shareholders and their stakeholders and were you feeling pressure within the company? Like, hey, you guys screwed this up. Oh yeah, yes. I mean, I remember there's a Wall Street Journal article somewhere along the way in this journey that basically the headline was Pepsi sweats over Gatorade. It may as well have said Sarah Robert Hagen fucked up Gatorade. It was bad. And yet, I will, you know, to this day gives so much like credit to my boss Massimo for continuing to believe in us and give us the air cover to keep going because in the end, you know, he really was the one that helped convince the powers that be that we've made this change and we've got to make it work because if we go backwards, that's going to make it worse. And I think we also were quickly building a case of we did have the data that showed that it wasn't as cause and effect as people thought it was and actually the declines were coming from just this natural shift in a tough recessionary environment where people couldn't afford Gatorade. They were getting water out of the tap for free, you know? Yeah. Were people were you ever named in any of those articles? Oh yeah. And I remember the whole time thinking God everyone back at Nike is just like you loser. Look what's happened to your career. Oh my God. That's the nature of us competitive sporty people. But I mean, it was a big risk and then you kind of just hit this really unlucky patch in the economy where it was probably their sales are probably going to go down anyway. There may have been some brand Confucian there were a couple of factors, but how long did that did those declines last? Was it weeks was a month? Oh, it was, it was a year and a half. And so yeah, so that whole year because I actually think that the real moral and lesson of the story is like, by the time we got into the summer months, you know, things that had calmed down a little bit internally, but it was clear that nothing was going to change these baseline trends on the business. And more importantly, I think what certainly Massimo myself, my boss and I really believed was that if you're going to turn a business around, changing its clothing, it's logo isn't going to do it. You need to bring meaningful innovation. And that will give the consumer a real reason to come back into the franchise. And so I remember he sat me down one day and said, listen, I'm going to give you the air cover this year. I'm going to take a lot of bullets for you because this is not going to fix itself this year. But you have to come up with an innovation launch for next year that is going to turn this thing around otherwise it's going to lose our jobs. And so I think it was one of those greatest partnerships I've ever had because he definitely kept the scary naysayers away so that my team and I could really hunker down and think about the long term and come up with a meaningful way to really figure out how to turn the business. So what was it? What was that way? What was it going to be? Yeah, so in the end, we spent a lot of.

"The creative process. Much easier. So you spend about 5 and a half years at Nike. And then you leave. Why? It was a decision of my career. So by this stage, I'm now back in LA and I'm running a big region of the U.S. for Nike. So I was a general manager by then. And I was having conversations about going back to Portland from my second, what we called tour of Judy. To sort of take a global category management job and for a number of reasons and this often happens like the HR process was moving slowly. I was getting very impatient because by then I was like, you know, I want to try something new. I want to keep growing. And one day out of the blue, I happen to take the recruiter call when call came in saying that they were looking for a new chief marketing office of a Gatorade. And Gatorade was needing a reinvention. I didn't know it was a turnaround, but it was kind of a brand reinvention, and they just need someone who's got all these great creative ideas and athletic background and I'm like listening to the call going everything is speaking to me right now. And I'll tell you the other thing that I don't know of other people ever feel like this when they take jobs. But as I got through the interview process, dawned on me several times that if I don't take this job, one of my colleagues at Nike is gonna get it. Yeah. That's a very honest. I think it's a sort of honest motivation for many people, but most people just don't talk about it, but that's true, right? Yes. They were going after you, which must have been incredibly flattering. And it would be the chief marketing officer of a big company. It was a big job. It was a big job. So I will say in the end, it was, I was very drawn to this, it was clearly a huge opportunity. It was a springboard for my career opportunity. Now, that said, I loved Nike and I having had this terrible experience in my 20s. Now I'm like thriving and I'm on the leadership track and it was a very scary decision to leave because I just kept thinking, God, if this implodes what will I have done? You know, I will have given up what I dreamed of since I was 20. So it was not an easy decision that's for sure. So you decide to take the job and you move to Chicago? That's right. And you became the chief marketing officer. I did. So I started out as the chief marketing officer. And when I first got there, you know, my boss, who was this amazing, crazy Italian, Massimo damore, he was listen, it's all about just like put some great new logos out there because at the time Gatorade looked very dated, like, you know, something from the 60s. You know, just throw some new logos on the bottles. It's going to be all good, you know, was kind of what we had all led ourselves to believe. But what we didn't realize was that the business, the fundamentals under the demand for the business were already going from flat to negative. And then the Great Recession was about to happen. And so it was like stepping onto the Titanic. Yeah, but what was going on? Because when Gatorade is like everywhere, you go to the supermarket or on the coolers and every major sporting event. It's literally everywhere. So what was going on? Why was Gatorade in trouble at that moment? So what had happened? I mean, I think a lot of businesses went through this in the late 2000 5, 6, 7 era was if you think about the economy was just on fire, falsely propped up by what was going on. And Gatorade had been acquired by Pepsi back in 2002. So it had gone from being as very. This beverage was really strong efficacy for the athletic occasion being used by athletes across sports with a high price point at high margin to once pivotal acquired not surprisingly what would you do if your Pepsi you put it in this giant distribution system and suddenly it's in 24 packs and Walmart and buy it and get a packet of chips for free, you know? And so what had happened as it had become so over distributed and the price had started come down and so in a great economy, you know, people were just drinking a Gatorade on the couch with a pizza. And it was just I do remember there was this fun fact that early on when we looked up on social media, what was the most common hashtag associated with Gatorade and it was hangover cure? It had got a long way from its really strong athletic roots because the business as is always a way they have to grow a certain percentage of years, so you just keep growing, adding distribution, adding, you know, more.

"gatorade" Discussed on Wisdom From The Top

"Three minutes in episode, 5 times a week, thoughts on the market. This interview of wisdom from the top was recorded in 2019. From luminary built in productions and NPR, its wisdom from the top. Stories of crisis, failure, turn around and triumph from some of the greatest leaders in the world. I'm guy rising on the show today, the story of Sarah rob o'hagan and Gatorade. When I first got there, you know, my boss was just like, you know, just throw some new logos on the bottles, it's going to be all good. But what we didn't realize was that the fundamentals under the demand for the business were already going from flat to negative. And then the Great Recession was about to happen. And so it was like stepping onto the Titanic. Have Sarah rob Hagen's resilience in the face of failure, again, and again, gave her the confidence to take big risks and turn around of failing brand. So if you happen to scroll through Facebook or Instagram today, you'd most likely see a combination of Friends, maybe influencers, living their best possible lives in an infinite highlight reel of stylized filters. You'd see glamorous celebrities offering their dose of pep and optimism and you would definitely come across that rolodex of inspirational quotes from leaders. But what you probably won't find are many stories of leadership that focus on failure and vulnerability, because it's actually not that common for leaders, especially business leaders to talk about this stuff. Unless you're talking about Sarah rob o'hagan, because Sarah is brutally honest about all the times she totally messed up. Like the time she got fired from virgin, or when she became too self conscious at her next job and got laid off. But all of those missteps eventually made Sarah a much, much better leader. One who would go on to become an executive at legendary brands like Nike and Gatorade, and who was the brain behind some of the most memorable and original marketing campaigns of the past 20 years, campaigns that, as you will find out, we're pretty bold and risky. And Sarah's combination of self awareness, nerve, and grit is pretty inspiring. Sarah grew up in New Zealand, and in college, she studied marketing and international business. Interestingly enough, I credit my big sister for the fact that I did that because I went into college having absolutely no idea what I wanted to do and having been told by all the career counselors that I was too dumb to be a vet, which is what I wanted. Not smart enough to do medicine or the sciences, and I was kind of guiding myself towards a sort of generic degree and my older sister who was ten years older was like, no, you don't understand, particularly as a woman, you have to come out with something that will give you a vocation and business would be a good place to start. I had no idea. She just kind of picked the courses for me in a way I went. So what did you do after you finished college? So after I finished college, I had this giant dream that I would work for in New Zealand, which is the national carrier of the country. And my main kind of career goal was to fly out of the country. That was a planet. And not because I don't adore New Zealand, which I do, but I just had such sort of aspirations to see the bigger world and have a career on a bigger stage, I guess. Yeah. So applied for a number of jobs, like in those days, I think it's similar today in college where recruiters come to campus and you kind of all of you like a herd apply for their entry level roles. And funnily enough, I applied for a New Zealand and completely screwed up the tests they made us take. And so I got what we fondly called a PFO letter in those days. I think you can figure out what that means. In other words, we don't want to hire you. And I did get off at a job at mobile oil, which I just wanted to blow my brains out at that prospect. So in the end, I actually decided there was no way I was going to take no for an answer. So I just went back to the recruiting lady at the airline and I said, listen up just I had a really bad day and I'm absolutely convinced that I'm the right person for this job and I put this huge proposal together as to why and this poor woman must have thought like what has hit me. But she ended up getting me 30 minutes with the hiring manager. Wow. Which is extraordinary. And by some hookah by Kirk I convinced him and it's very funny because there was 6 internship roles and I was the 7th that they made an extra role for. So you start, I guess you start out in like marketing for air New Zealand. I did. So I was a graduate traine and I was so lucky to this day I look back and think how incredibly lucky it was because I did three months in each Department of the Air airline as an intern. So everything from working out at the airports and shaking people in to route management, load factors all that sort of stuff and then ultimately advertising and marketing. So I was really lucky to be at that junior level just seeing sort of all of these sides of an operating business and obviously a very complex operating business. Up close. Yeah. And you were doing this presumably in New Zealand. Yes, I was. I was in Auckland, New Zealand, yeah. But still with this idea of kind of getting out, getting out into the world. Absolutely, yeah. And then eventually a role opened up in North America and based in Los Angeles. And Los Angeles is the key ways would say. And I was like, this is it. It has to happen because honestly at that time so dating myself, but I was watching tons of Beverly Hills 9 O two one O. And I was like, I just want to live on the beach. That looks really cool. And so I applied for this particular role, which was like, I think of the advertising promotions manager. At air New Zealand. At Anne New Zealand based in LA so it was like a into company transfer. And to be quite honest, I was only 21, 22 at the time, and way over my skis. I mean, I never should have gotten the role, but to this day, I'm just so grateful to the guy who was running in New Zealand and North America norm Thompson as his name. Because he decided to take a bet on me this crazy.

"I don't know if he really needs it but all the different he wants orange. He wants to read. He wants blue. so how has it evolved. Since the days of dr cade well. I think what you'll notice. Is that habsi co. Who is the licensee at gatorade. At this point in time you know they invest a tremendous amount in going beyond just the color of the drink. Right there really most interested in how it impacts sports performance and they are a leader in sports performance research. And so i you know. I don't know the ins and outs of the evolution of gatorade as a product. But what i do know is that it has evolved to improve its ability to enhance sports performance for its users and he had sports performance enhanced hydration etc. So you know. They've got different versions of gatorade. You know gatorade. that has less sugar gatorade. That has more energy gator. You know their whole wide variety of versions of gatorade. Let's talk a little bit more. And i know you're not a sports nutritionist. But let's talk a little bit about. Who should be drinking gatorade. I jokingly mentioned my five year old. But i do i feel like i see people reaching for these sports drinks and bars and things like that after just a short workout or not a very strenuous workout. Do you think there's a danger in people over relying on a product like gatorade. I'm not really sure. I can answer that question. I mean i think you know. As with almost anything everything requires moderation right but do people over rely. i think it has to be situational. It is a replenishment. This drink was made to replenish electrolytes and rehydrate individuals. And so you know it definitely serves a useful purpose. Another thing you know. I didn't mention earlier. You would ask about how gatorade has made an impact. Globally before gatorade was developed dehydration was one of the top ten killers of children around the world. Right you've got to think about the before gatorade..

"Isn't it has show a thirty for thirty. Okay and the story of the mention of gatorade and it's really fantastic okay. We'll have to find it in link to that in the show like you and i should write that screenplay now i mean it could be a movie. I mean this is. This is a story. That's fraught with you. Know they ideas and product that change the world but there was also an incredible lawsuit and there is everyone that's involved in. The story was a character really. It's a great story. So gimme the cliffs notes version. How did it change the world. I know you. And i probably while i know i did. I started at the cave. Most people think that gatorade is a dream. Just a drink that you drink when you're hot sweaty thirsty but what people don't really realize before gatorade. There was now sports performance product. Line out there. People were not encouraged to even drink water when they were working out at the time. You were discouraged. You were prevented from drinking water or hydrating during your sports exercise because it would creep you up you would get sick and so before gatorade. There was no sports performance product line. There were no sports performance products. There really wasn't any sports medicine at a time. Either looking at sports through the lens of of medicine was just not a common thing. That was done back then. and so. When gatorade was introduced gatorade was introduced. Not as a product. Gator aid was introduced to solve a problem so this was really research that came out of the lab and put onto the field within six weeks and so it was a game changer. In that gatorade created a whole new industry billion dollar industry. Think about that. Think about all of the things. You see lining the shelves at dick's sporting goods and such that cliff bars and the power dreams and all of that. That wasn't even on the radar..

"How does the app know what you're doing. You tell it just right now. I'm doing this so take a scan. You have two options. There asked the user when you're scheduling men you workout. You can see a blading to use strength patch on this particular workout. So be prepared. That's one option. The other option is after you finish your workout. They are asked as you didn't use the patch so if you did. Let's go which were full of scanning if you're not. There is a fullback mechanism hallway. We out where we can compare your rates in subtracts dead and see how much flutie lost. The downside of this is that we do not capture sodium loss starting consideration to when it gets to the server side. What's the api premark seoul. The is talking to back in all the time. We carry us the back in forth ronin metaphor of sorts so the api not only does the reasoning for the whole system but sometimes it even helps the app a little bit with so the dogs to the back into debt user profile to the time line of events and they renders those time line of events captures additional information for example your motivation in your physique and reports that information to the back. End the sweats cans in scheduled middle east cancelled workouts. Everything else happens. At the begging everything else will remain grabbing weathering permission soldiers leading your latitudes and longitudes into a temperature is your workout for delta door one thing sanding bush scheduling push notifications to remind you that you have this recommendation or there's an upcoming workouts things like that also confused the local to whole buddy transformation. It's manages your stretch profiles and it's triggers so province recommendation agents. That will tell you not only gatorade products. But also general foods that's could be suitable for your nutritional needs so we can say for example if you you need these amount of carbs. There's a motor protein. Maybe you should think a little bit of caffeine or casing. And then we'd give it a list of jared food like riots buffet and then you can plan accordingly to fulfill those recommendations. All that back in the back end is flask flask. We were endowed into beginning being between fast. Api in flask. I wanted to find the problem. Domain may not the technology so i decided to fully synchronous end because he dedicated super easy to the ball. It's much less thrown like problems. I was not concerned with performance. In the beginning once we learn was that flask was performed enough for all our needs shoulders devon well. We had a several. Api just for integration with guardian struggle after chance to prediction a march. We realize that the team was choose. More to maintain in really didn't need show emerge the chew. api's into a single model but those chewing is one of them was a synchronous. So we did. That's a secret Court in death was the one talking chew gardening straw because debt one was purely i. O ball's not safe you about right. You're entirely waiting on strada and garment and the internet and so you should be able to scale that many many times out because all you're doing is waiting on their api and you're completely at the mercy of their performance at show pictures while right. So do you think makes a lot of sense but it turns out. It wasn't needed Yeah the thing we realize was there. Of course there are trade-offs so if you go for a job interview in you present as like a problem. I think the is doing they seem to do. It's a separate via because then against kale independently you have better royal food with lower latency etc but in the real world you have to balance all those things. We've the size of your team the resources that you have other external conditions sowing the end we decided to consolidates everything into a single technology in a single stack because it was simpler if we need to onboard new people train instead of knowing flasks than cards now. The only need a single framework in because scale ability was not problem. We re using like kuban netties in production age like or easily scalable. We decided to reverse that in due to malysz single stack plus full away. And that's what we have today. How interesting so you decided you can just solve it by running more worker processes except for container and then just running more containers if you need to take a better soul for the conditions. We have in the charge. I think that makes a lot of sense you know. They're so often. These recommendations of using micro services breaking stuff into a bunch of pieces having just the right technology for just a slice of what you're doing and then you've got your app. Your app is talking to the different services. Now you're trying to coordinate. It just gives me chills. Think about it releasing this through the apple app approved process in coordinating that with the versions of multiple. Api's that sounds so bad nightmare really fast in in my mind. My experience is my pursuit of services is answer for a given team sites so you have like one. Hundred developers like idol or a thousand developers like netflix. Or shafi lie then it makes every syncing the world should break it up in individual components because you have individual teams corners law right the software. Your view reflects the architecture of the people in the company. And how they built a softer already have a very tiny little team. The mother is great. It simplifies everything. So that's like a list less relearn that we kinda over engineer in the beginning trying to chew itchy eyes and we took the relative breeding monolith. I think that makes a lot of sense for small teams. And here's the thing. If you run into performance problems that really needs a sink stuff you know when you consider to use flask and not fast. Api bass api was brand new. And who knows if it would survive another six months or if it would go the way of other really promising projects like pronto or something. Which as far as i could be wrong but as far as i know it gotten a ton of attraction it was really exciting for a and it. Just kind of build out right. Yes you want to build on that. So i think flasks totally reasonable choice. But i guess what i was gonna say. Is you know. It's not that different if you need to re translate that if you're going to convert that fast. Api like that's the thing you as a team of a couple of people could do in a few days and it would be fine tutors. For example as being. Fan of.

"Here the group right so this is one thing the other thing. It's all about flexibility in performance that you mentioned for example in this latest project appear tackling the jacks project. We haven't all. We had cebu bowel problems. We're tackling i o bound problems and in both cases button was behaving just fine. We have like sixteen thousand users right now. We have three. Api instances and where it's a forest probably change over we introduce cashing or using mobile db for skill ability and have zero performance issues so far but because we haven't the saucer under control know what's happening there technology's not a mystery. It's easy to pinpoint what's wrong and then replace it for a new version fast in its results at the fantastic point you know you've got the architectural considerations as well as just the raw technology right for sure. It's a single thing. That's why. I use the metaphor of like a living organism because it's on an ecosystem the your software is not a nine and eight more in the best. We had like this release to the desktop. Install and it's all your machine but today interacting with your brain system with the cloud with the user so it's alive right isabey namic eco-system so it's all about those interactions in understanding. Do they knicks on each of these interfaces and then optimizing for the feng shirley for before recall and. I want to dive into this first. Api because i think it's super interesting. People are going to be really surprised by. I'm sure yeah. That'd be fun. But before i do i do want to ask you one more sort of big picture question you working with working co you working with all these clients digital agency doing the end to end work which i think makes a lot of sense. What is the trends for python that you've seen across the last five years or so what stood out to you from these conversations. Maybe five ten years ago. You're having now you're thinking about the future truffes there. My reality at least in doesn't mean like it's abroad world that we have there any case rights so beaches for my experiencing the last three years so there are two things that come to mind. Love them is this like mediator thing because everything's in the cloud because you're not writing any more saucer from scratch you have to doing degration like booing buydell. Back in the early days became famous as glue language. It interesting grueling things in the desktop now by gluing things in the goal because by research aversive via language in terms of a huge ecosystem of libraries because the language itself allows you to compute like anything is became an excellent technology for gruel edge in for us it's critical because any project we're dealing with. Okay we have to talk to davies for sure but it only have to talk for four casting rather service. We have to push notification service. We have to dog to analytic system. Perform so you need to send signals there so it's these ecosystem thing on his dream for that because you find connectors you find the drivers you find examples so that all of that speeds up the cycle of development in gives you confidence that you achieve whatever you need in success right in terms of existence. Still we're not talking about just the computer right now so we did a project for google. The new store in google there are something better devices there. Shoul deaths another niche embedded systems. Iot things for the television did singer married where he was liking betting on the set. Top box so this is one thing that i think. We're going to see more and more often now. She likes abusing your lamps and people blade lamps. Bright the other thing. It's the data driven aspect. So one of the flags that i carry working goal is the data driven design. So data driven design is like okay. We're not doing design. Just based on the inspirational thing show designers in their creativity in their capacity for either vision but anchored in data from the real world. Sometimes dead approach goes all the way through conceptual design each of the products which we are seeing with these machine learning deep learning based products male model in production behind flats or something. Yeah so that's another trend. That's bibles Is great ryan not only for the business political aspects but also for the pipelines should be models introduction. Perini the way you described python glue languages super interesting. Compared to the way it's traditionally been described traditionally glue language. Meant something like well. I've got a c. library. And i'm talking to lennox and so i could write the stuff in python at all do some. Shell stuff with lenox in that. It will also like hole in the cpi and just move that data from here to there and go and it's come across a little bit as a second class thing it's like the very best scripting language you can imagine and it's kind of not perfect for apps but will will will do this but what you described was we're going to take the database and take these. Api's rant take the web requests. Were gonna glue that together. I mean that is the application. I it's like thinking. Yeah it's thinking of will really what is what is a modern. Api app other than a thing. That is a little data from an inbound request be pulled some pushes something over to celery. Grab something out of the database. Calls these api's and bundles at backup as a response and sends it back with the status code. That's the entire application and yet this idea of gluing these pieces together as a really interesting way to think of it. Like doing systems angling data or these things are connected but sometimes you can have doing data in a synchronous way right in batch processing or a logo processing or for analyses or human interaction. But it's still glowing data from several sources in. There's these other approach which is like doing license. It of course is only across them but also become extremely aspect is key right can authenticate and talk to all of these systems in the expense. You interchange information. The real power is how well does it perform that that combination. Not how well does that one millisecond versus two milliseconds in the actual web view method. Runtime pay right. It's yes it's super interesting to see it that way all right. Well let's jump into the first. Api that we're gonna talk about. Yeah so this has to do with gatorade. Which is the sports drink company and they have created this really interesting idea of the quantified self for fitness. Here with this thing called the sweat patch. Exactly this is something. That blew my mind when i saw i. Yes this is something that is really in the beginning. We launched is introduction in march. I this year it has been in development since two thousand eighteen and in the research inside gatorade goals even far back. So what they are trying to do. Gatorade has this unix. Call just aside the gatorade sports size incidents i had the opportunity to visit one of their physical instances in sarasota florida in two thousand twenty in day. No like amazing work. They're like bridging sports science like students actual experiments in.

"Welcome to talk to me super to have you here. There's a lot of things you've been building for different companies through your work. That's going to be really fun to explore. I think one of the really neat things. Here's you're not just working for one company working on one team the way it works. But you're kind of interacting with a bunch of different projects types of technologies. So you'll have a good broad perspective on what went well. What didn't what you would change. And so on the one thing that stuck with me his nineteen ninety seven different companies. Say like five different companies to different like continents was one thing that remains and say man. That's fantastic good choice indeed. Well let's start this conversation by talking about your story how you got into programming in python. It sounds like you're one of the early adopters. What version of python. That was probably a version one type of thing. Five points to nineteen ninety seven trying. I was almost finishing my undergraduate course in computer engineering. It out reading gauge in my master's post graduation course where we studying. What was your degree in well. Breath in degree was computer engineering. But for democrates. I was studying computational reflection in the air. It's the line of research that led to aspect j. in other things but he does all about object-oriented protocols so how you organize object orientation program languages those kinds of things okay and aspects jay. That's like aspect oriented programming exactly as with oriented. Programming was like in a bite. Of the research in computational reflection at the time we were academically speaking we were trying to figure out. What can you do with reflection. I think java was one of the language that made popular tim doing inspection in reflection improving lanes. Of course we have reading. Lists like since saturday's java made like nole to the wide world war so then we became like researching more formally in i started. Probing supports for reflective programming immigrant languages. And that may have not only java but at the time berle python tickle and once i saw by each felt like a glove my hands in there. I yeah that's really. Maybe you could just talk a little tiny bit about what reflection is for people who maybe haven't done a lot of you know java or Dot net they have it as well in in python. We have it in the sense that you can go in and explore the types and so you know give it an object. What if it's class like. What is this meta class. And you can like dig into it and even change it. But i don't typically hear it referred to as reflection in the python ecosystem right yeah. Introspection became a more. Common thrown is time reflection was about creating programs. That reason about sprints so it was about this medal. Reasoning h was very popular to do nonfunctional aspects. So you will writing cold in the cold heads. The functional aspects. What to do how. It's like i one things. And in the no functional aspects like logging persistency monitoring those kinds of things were exploring hell to detach decoupled those things on your actual program and new there on a separate layer and that was once reflection was all about it was about having as inputs your own goals in as outscored changing behavioral. Your program and away. We attack that. The time was by an interception mechanism so by always had that i think they called dumb perjury hook or something like that where you could like intercept like anything. There was happening there. We do have the bugging hook indices module that allow us to like pause your computation in see what's happening author programming languages in. We're talking about the nineties. The bottle ones were statically compiled programming language c. c. plus plus. They generally don't have this behavior. Yeah sometimes they has run time information when he could by your sore schools enabling debt. That's right i remember. There was an rt and c. Plus plus but it was off by default exactly but the interpreted world machine bread. You had interpreter during run time. Sometimes you have the compiler as well which was true for java which was true for by burl all equal being dynamically languages and then that became more of the things of course in time people realize there were other ways to achieve the same goals which were more defensive because one of the main things. We've introspection in interception is that everything is happening in your programme. It's can't being redefined delivered to this meta level and then handled as the so. There's like a major crate in speeds rights so it was not the answer for everything especially when you want to have like river forms but foreign things. That were offline badge or analyses. It was not a problem and one thing that i an exercise that i'd done the time which is kinda interesting was shoe introduced. A the bugger. During run time so because we have this reflection mechanism that were just like this. You could take possession of objects and then interaction with his objects. We'd go to its guardian. Angel which i call the meta object of his object and then decide what to do to lie about what was happened to just delegate back to that object down there sales. Become a proxy soga mutation. So you could do anything. And in that case we could install a burger just for giving class or giving the instance of your program and then propagate like a virus for game either that class or is this dutch so they're getting interesting. Newly mation of programming butts became more as academic exercise in the only thing that i remember that scattered succeeded into the industry was aspect oriented program shorts. That's very interesting. It seems to me a little bit. Like decorators yes decorators are rappers but the thing is are not transparent so whenever you create a decorator or proxy. what's happening. Is that the references you has to the original object now needs to points to the repor to the decorator right so the key insides for reflection will go quotation. That we were exploring at the time was how we make this broad seem totally transparent so if you have a pointer or reference to an object before it became reflective. is you'll be valid. So you can. Third voted off those introspection mechanisms any perception mechanism and installing your spare so to achieve that. We had shoot changed interpreter. So that's how we voted for. Java and hallway was exploring the dime for bible itself and pearl to change the interpreter to ask the hook in there in due transparent traffic. Now it seems like some of the new peps might make it possible plug in now rather than actually change it..

Well let's start this conversation by talking about your story how you got into programming in python. It sounds like you're one of the early adopters. What version of python. That was probably a version one type of thing. Five points to nineteen ninety seven trying. I was almost finishing my undergraduate course in computer engineering. It out reading gauge in my master's post graduation course where we studying. What was your degree in well. Breath in degree was computer engineering. But for democrates. I was studying computational reflection in the air. It's the line of research that led to aspect j. in other things but he does all about object-oriented protocols so how you organize object orientation program languages those kinds of things okay and aspects jay. That's like aspect oriented programming exactly as with oriented. Programming was like in a bite. Of the research in computational reflection at the time we were academically speaking we were trying to figure out. What can you do with reflection. I think java was one of the language that made popular tim doing inspection in reflection improving lanes.

Training for a Marathon? Here's Some Tips on Training and Hydration

"Exciting that. You're gearing up for your first marathon in october. That will be a great day for you. I am absolutely sure. I know i say this all the time but training especially for your first marathon. It's an absolute life changer. Both the training and race day. So you'll have to keep us posted about how it's going as for all the stuff i know right. Keep in mind that on race day it will probably be a bit easier because they will obviously with covid. Things have been a bit different but most likely they will have fluids station so check now because they probably already know where those will be and what they will be offering since it usually tends to include some sort of sponsorship. Whether it's going to be power bar or gatorade or whatever they're offering up so see what they will be giving out and train with that in terms of liquids and hydration with some obviously with certain things like you can. There's powders and you can carry the powder and mix it in the water. You can carry your own bottle and have them fill it up for you. All kinds of options but See what they're offering because if for example they're offering gatorade endurance on the course. Maybe want to start training with that. So you know how your body responds that. We don't have to carry your own fluids on race day but yes. The training is so important especially if it is hot where you are. You wanna make sure you're hydrated. Maybe not the best answer but one thing you can always do. I just think carrying bottles is so annoying for a long time. I use nathan hand-held bottle and it was fine but it would really annoy me. I was constantly switching from one hand to the next and I just felt like it was weighing me down. Throwing my stride i just. I don't like to carry things when i'm running. So yeah there are belts that you can get that have little bottles that fit into the belts and that's an option that way you're not holding them in their little so those are really great Say those are really great. I've never used them but tons of people do so. That can be an option for

EU regulator reviews AstraZeneca shot and blood clot links

"Up the astra zeneca ccp virus vaccines. They're investigating the doses as a precaution. After one person died. Another was sickened following inoculation. Basically austria suspended a batch of astrazeneca vaccines after some reports of some unusual blood clotting events and then a few days later we saw denmark. Basically say we're gonna stop vaccinating with astrazeneca completely Toya melanoma some other. Nordic countries made similar announcements and over the following week saw more and more european union countries said. Oh yeah actually. Let's just hit pause. The authorities in the republic of ireland have recommended temporarily suspending. The use of the astra zeneca vaccine. One investigations are carried out into four new reports of blood closing in patients who received the job in norway. Well then on. Monday saw kind of the big powerful you. Countries france germany italy spain also that they were gonna pause vaccination update on some breaking news and france germany and we have now joined the eu countries to suspend the rollout of the oxford astrazeneca covid vaccine and meanwhile it's important to say that regulators weather we're talking about the european medicines agency or the world health organization. They've said look so far. We haven't seen any evidence that these blood clotting events are caused by the vaccine. Just because you get a vaccine doesn't mean that you're protected from every other normal thing that can go wrong. The latest data from the european medicines agency shows that out of five million astra zeneca vaccinations given across the continent. That have been thirty. Reports of people suffering a blood clot soon afterwards but in a population of that size you would expect five thousand people a year to develop blood clots even without vaccination obviously cardiovascular. Problems are are pretty common and the argument from astra zeneca is that. Hey look actually. These aren't happening anymore than than we would predict to happen. And kind of normal circumstances in the general population. And you're also not seeing more issues with these vaccines than with other virus vaccine. So why are you picking on us So like let's say Instead of vaccines we were. We were talking about sports drinks here. it's sort of like a situation where some people who buy gatorade happen to get in car accidents and then everybody decides. You shouldn't buy gatorade because you're gonna get it in a car accident but at the same time like people who get other sports drinks are also still getting in car accidents. So potentially and and probably. That's what happened. But the and other regulators around the world including the world health organization are really looking at this closely and trying to figure out what's going on and the reality is that there have been instances where vaccines do cause problems in a very rare number of cases. But the other thing. Is you know this could also be caused by the coronavirus itself and the argument that many are making including at the who and at the european medicines agency is corona. Virus is a serious deadly disease. So if you're thinking about risk versus benefit which is the way a lot of drug regulators. Think it's still worth the risk that maybe a tiny number of people will have these blood clots in exchange for the benefit of of so many more people being protected from an even more dangerous. It's fascinating so you have. What could be a small risk. Might not even be a risk associated with vaccine but you still have this huge domino effect of of countries. Pausing the shots. I mean at this point. It sounds like almost most of europe isn't giving astrazeneca at this point. Yeah it's at least seventeen at this point. And that's out of twenty seven countries and perhaps even more importantly that includes some of the biggest most powerful countries ones that have their own regulatory system so a lot of the smaller. Eu countries really rely on the european medicines agency where as countries like france and germany. Kind of have the power to make their own decisions. But we've at the same time we also saw spanish official. The spanish health minister say that spain actually has not even seen very many of these cases at all but sort of because they saw these other countries doing it. They felt pressure to as a precaution. You hear the word precaution a lot. They felt pressure as precaution to hit. Pause wow it just seems

With a New Sleep-Aid Drink, Pepsi Tackles Coronasomnia

"Americans are getting far less sleep than we ever have. We were already a nation of insomniacs before covid nineteen created so much chaos. Now, apparently, even fewer of us are getting enough shut eye. So help is coming from a highly unusual source pepsico. That's right. One of the nation's biggest caffeine purveyors now wants to help us get to sleep last week. Pepsi introduced a new bedtime drink intended to provide some. Relief called drift. Well, it's a blackberry lavender drank contains two chemicals said to be relaxing magnesium and an amino acid called L. CNN. Pepsi will begin selling drift well online at the end of the year and in stores and twenty, twenty one but you better start saving your pennies now. So called functional drinks, those containing vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other supplements cost a lot more than your average soda when drift well hits the market, a ten pack of the seven and a half ounce cans will set you back eighteen bucks. Pepsi says it began developing drift well, last year after an employee up the idea during an internal pitch competition no reports on whether that employees can't sleep. So drift well predates the corona virus, but it's release is well-timed with what sleep specialists now say is an epidemic of insomnia. The draft accompanying the pandemic is so widespread that some specialists are calling pandemic do sleeplessness Coronas Omnia the Washington. Post reports insomnia has long been a plague on our lives prior to the pandemic ten to fifteen percent of Americans suffered from chronic insomnia according to the. Post that's the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at least three nights a week for three months or more well now, those numbers are even higher although studies aren't yet conclusive on just how much higher they are but consider this prescriptions for sleep AIDS jumped fifteen percent from mid February to mid March according to data from express scripts reported by the Post and of course, his problem surge. So to do the markets for solutions, the market for sleep AIDS, is currently worth a billion dollars in growing quickly according to data provided by Pepsi. And why shouldn't the soda giant get a piece of that? Indeed as we've reported here before Pepsi has been diversifying for many years forging a healthier and more profitable path forward soda consumption declines as CNN noted in twenty-six. Pepsi Acquired Kabukicho Maker Kavita two years. Later it bought Health Warrior, a maker of plant based energy bars, and it has added protein powders to some of its line of gatorade energy drinks. Not, to be outdone, rival coke is also bought a combined shoemaker. It's lines of bottled water and sparkling waters are doing well to cocoa also has acquired honest tea and it has long been the owner of Zico, a brand of coconut water but so far coke products can only keep you awake not help you slumber depending on how well drift well does though a sleep inducing beverage from coke probably won't be far behind in back the need for a sleep aid soda. Might just be keeping. The are indeed people coke. Up at, night.

Vita Coco: Michael Kirban

"Remember that kid in high school who was weirdly interested in business who had almost no interest in going to college or starting a traditional career, but was determined to start something on their own. You might have snickered about them or even ruled your eyes or maybe that kid was you. Well, that kid was also Michael. Kurban. Michael had the benefit of watching his dad pursue a bunch of different business ideas including ideas that failed but the specter failure never worried him. He knew from a very early age that it's part of the game that you gotta take big swings, which means you will also strike out a lot. And the biggest swing Michael would take would be for Vita. Coco you've probably seen their familiar Tetra Pak boxes of coconut water in pretty much every convenience store. In the early two thousands when Michael was trying to launch the brand New York City, he was pretty confident that coconut water would take off at the time most people who bought coconut water were immigrants from places like Vietnam India, the Caribbean and Latin America. But Michael had a hunch that coconut water could compete with sports drinks like gatorade. Now. At the exact same moment someone else had these same exact hunch. It would become a product known as Zico and so what happened and what you will hear is a story about a war, the coconut water wars of the early two thousands a war was sabotaged subterfuge dirty tricks, and eventually a pretty decent outcome for both parties. Today by COCO is the biggest brand of coconut water in the US. It has about forty percent market share but it would take a lot of time and a lot of obstacles to get there. Michel grew up in Connecticut and when he was nine his parents split up it was amicable. But while Michael, sister chose to live with their mom Michael Decide to stay with their dad. My Mom Got Custody I. Think my dad gave my mom custody and my dad was actually packing his things and preparing to leave the house and I packed my snoopy suitcase. Put It with all my dad's stuff and I remember my mom coming home and saying what's this and I said I'm moving in with dad she said. Okay Wow that's amazing. My mom ended up a few years later ended up moving into New York City so I'd spend weekends and city you know, and I still see her quite a bit but. Super Close with my dad. What did your parents do? When you were a kid. As a kid my dad was entrepreneur. My Dad always had businesses before him. My grandfather always had different businesses my grandfather same thing. So. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs I don't think there's a single male in my family who's graduated from college on both sides and. My Dad when I was young had a roller skating rink. which was awesome. In. Those were the successful days and then he had other businesses that weren't so successful and we went through periods of doing well and other periods of not doing so well and were those. Birthday party I had roller skating birthday party and four remember birthday parties and Church groups and youth group of and stuff like that. Happened there. Everybody I went to school with as a kid had their birthday party at the roller skating ring. So so good. So I got to go to all the parties whether I was invited or not. Yeah, and then as rollerskating kind of out and was now we'll thing anymore he turned the place into a rap concert hall. So I grew up one of twelve thirteen years old hanging out with beastie boys ll cool J. Kid it was really really cool experience. So he really pivoted because thinking that what happened roller skating it was great. It was like one day was there and then it was gone. Yeah it was a real fat. People stopped going and he pivoted very quickly and you know that works for a little bit of time and then just didn't work anymore. So in terms of school, how how was it for you? Was it hard was it easy where you good student? Not a good student school was really tough. I had several learning disabilities from attention deficit disorder to form of Dyslexia as I got into high school they. Me and by diagnosing me, they put me in what we used to refer to as Romper. Room. which was. Half the day in normal classes and half the day in basically special ed it was a room with me and other kids who. Many of which had more complicated issues than I had. I knew I was very late in reading and math was really hard for me and I had a clear goal and that goal was to get cs and. Get as close to passing as possible. And that was always the objective and I always knew that would be successful in whatever I did. But why did you know that? I don't know I just felt because even then right even though I was in these classrooms I was still. Successful in things that I wanted to do you know I was not the best athlete but I worked hard and you know I was able to. Play ball and it wasn't the best. I definitely wasn't a good student but I was able to get by and I, just I just had this confidence from an early

Rethinking Your Drinking/Drug Use During Times of Crisis

"I don't know how you're feeling this week but I'm actually feeling a little bit better. Had A couple of tough days. I'm GonNa admit that because it's really important for everyone to know that we are all struggling right now with these big emotions and were isolated and trying to cope with them and handle them. This is why I want to talk about my subject for today and that is getting or stain sober really rethinking near drinking and drug use. During this time of crisis I am getting lots of inquiries and new clients because people who have been kind of going along with their drinking or their pot use for instance are now seen that use increase exponentially and it's scaring people rightfully so. I remember those times when my alcohol use was increasing when I was taking more benzodiazepines those anxiety drugs than I whisper -scribed and it wasn't during a time of crisis today. I want to ease into the idea for those of you. Who are listening to reducing your drinking especially at this time to really rethink how you're using substances in your lives. One of the reasons that the shift in my profession from diagnosis seen a chemical dependency or an abuse problem shifted in two thousand thirteen. And by the way people were trying to do this long before it was actually adopted to substance use disorders. That means we are now and probably all along could have and should have been looking at substance use honest spectrum. I wish that I didn't have to experience. A severe substance. Use TO SORT. Because for me that look like heavy duty long binges of using alcohol twenty four hours a day. Lean and bad my last big bend before I found the help that changed my thinking in my way of being in this world and for me that meant residential treatment for thirty days with that. Look like in my life was laying in bed and suffering and kind of getting up to maybe eat or I used to drink gatorade to try and get my body back to some kind of functionality and get out their power walk and after a period of time I just succumbed to the chemicals that were overwhelming my brain. The neuro toxins that had infiltrated my bean. My neurobiology and I had not a fighting chance so when I talk about the spectrum of substance use and the idea that we have a mild moderate and severe spectrum the mild part of the spectrum is where you can really turn things around pretty quickly so for those of you who are listening in. May Be aren't yet ready to stop because it's a little stressful right. Now I'm going to encourage you to look at it a little differently to rethink the idea of total abstinence and to look at moderation in a very clinical way. Because if you're working with me for moderation there is a way to do that to make the experience really successful for you you know. We grow so accustomed to these patterns that we develop in our lives and we don't think about them after we develop them. We just returned to the same kind of Groundhog Day and in the case of what we're dealing with right now where there's really good opportunities to look at this space and time that we are alone that we are able to really look at these patterns and not give way to them and not give into them. Can't tell you how many posts I have read on instagram and facebook where people are saying. It's a real struggle not to take that first drink earlier in the day and I've seen a lot of people saying I really want to start drinking at two. Pm or even noon and the good news is that where we were a month ago. People were really joking about that but I hear and read concern now. Like people don't really want to do this but they're bored. They're they're scared. And it is for many coping skill that they have turned to over the years. So I WANNA work on that with the all today to really dive deeper into the opportunity to reduce. Maybe quit altogether or to reinvest in your sobriety and recovery. I know I have covered how I go about diagnosing people. I'm air quoting diagnosing. Because for most of you have listened to me. I'm not really a big diagnosis or of disorders. I do like to use the criteria that's identified in the DSM the diagnostic statistical. Manual won't walk really big name for a diagnostic manual because the information we get from going through the criteria with our clients however for today. I want to give you three questions or topics or criteria for you to think about if you're struggling with your thoughts around drinking or drugging number one. Are you obsessively thinking about alcohol or drugs in a way? That's impacting your life. Is this kind of obsessive? Thought that you have regarding taking a drink or engaging in your drug of choice what I talked about earlier where people are saying. I'm I'm really wanting to drink earlier in earlier in the day. That's obsessive thinking you're not thinking well. I'll go take a walk earlier in the day. You thinking about your coping mechanism that you've turned to mostly probably in the evenings but not focused on any other healthier coping skills to relieve your tension so it makes sense that you're going to think about drinking or drugging earlier in the day unless we can get you to shift your paradigm shift. You're thinking a little bit toward a healthier coping skill so number one criteria. Are you thinking about alcohol or drugs more often during the day number two in the face of potential severe consequences? Do you still drink or use drugs now. I want to be really clear about the word severe in here because so many of us don't count our relationship. Problems has a severe issue and I don't mean that these problems with our relationships have to be big blow outs. It's that resentment that we feel toward our or our loved ones that were not sharing. Its festering inside of us. Also people feel compelled to take a little nip to take the edge off. So you might be using it before you have a tough conversation with the kids or your husband or your parents or the biggest one. The one that I fell prey to was easing to sleep. And we also underestimate the power of clean sleep if you will sleep without taking some kind of medication. Drug naturally induced self soothing. I will also say the really troubling consequence that most people belittle or minimize is getting behind the wheel. When you've had one or two drinks most of us who have had one or two drinks like over the happy hour were not really stained for four hours in which case if you are staying for four hours like I used to. You're really not good to get behind the wheel and of course right now. That's not a big deal but I will tell you in Georgia. It's still a big deal. People are actually kinda going to places And meeting with people keeping social distancing and still having cocktail parties. Yep even on. What's the date today? Wednesday April eight crazy.

"I saw some last night we wrote about it just before I went to bed I always look for that one last story then I can close before I all of the night one last copy paste and snarky comment and this is a hell of a way to circumvent the NFL's ruled that thou shalt not get your fines paid by someone else you know when ever someone is fine the requirement is that the person who is fine to pay the fine and no one else can paid on their behalf we've seen go fund me pages pop up where grown men and women presumably donating money to a fine that a player easily has enough money to pay but just because of the principle of it like that kind of stupidity like give that money to an actual charity or someone you know who needs the help dum dum but Marcus Peters a ravens and Eric Fisher the chiefs both were fined fourteen thousand thirty seven dollars during the twenty nineteen season for celebrations that involve grabbing a beer and either actually drinking it or trying to drink it we're just pouring it on their head I think for Eric Fisher was more just kind of port in the general direction of his face both were fined both now have bud light sponsorships under a rule that the NFL put in place back in may allowing individual partnerships with the official beer of the National Football League yes that's not Gatorade net bucket the guys stirring with a long sleeve of cups covered in plastic that's been god knows where it's beer the official beer of the NFL it's funny how the vision to be the official anything like it has no relevance whatsoever to the playing of the game the official candy bar the official beer of the NFL paying one point six billion over a six year window bud light paying on the side Eric Fisher Marcus

The Impact of the Food System on Our Health and the Environment with Mark Hyman

"Mark thanks for coming over man. No I'm so happy to be here. It's beautiful chickens running around and everything Venezuelan the freezer. My kind of place. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's in keeping with a lot of what we're gonNA talk about today. I think mark a lot of people would associate you with other topics that we might get into functional medicine the role of toxins in the environment. Certainly food but from the standpoint of health what to eat but what we're talking about today is actually something that when you first mentioned to me. You are working on this book actually. At the time you were putting the finishing touches on it about a year ago I was like. That's definitely something I want to understand more so I can't wait to kind of have this discussion with you today. And that is basically how food is made. How food is delivered and how food is consumed. And what the impacts of that are I mean? What made you decide to tackle a problem of this magnitude which is not just a scientific problem but it's a political problem. It's a religious problem if we're going to be brutally honest nutrition religion. Yes exactly so. It's about as complicated as a topic is one would go after it is. I think as a doctor seeing patients day after day for thirty years is a functional medicine. Doctor my focus is on why? Why are my patients so sick and not always but the majority of them? It has some relationship to food and then it began to wonder. Well I could sit here all day. Bailing the bucket and the boat with a hole in it. But I have to figure out why they're eating the food they're eating and they're going to think about it and go upstream and while food they're eating is caused by the food system and like why did we have the food system. We have our food policies. And then I'm like. Why do we have our food policies? It's food industry. That influences our government policy through lobbying and other other influences that they do across the spectrum of society to drive their products to the market and sell them. Which are predominant killing us. There's eleven million. People die every year from eating ultra processed food and not enough the good food and I think it's an underestimate so basically answered questions. I realized I couldn't treat my patients in my office in the hospital. The clinic I had to go where the source of the problem was. Yeah Yeah and I want to sort of put this in context which is the evolution of this the domestication of crops. The institutionalization of agriculture has for. We're going to demonize it a little bit here but the reality of it is it's been kind of a remarkable transformation it would certainly be akin to the printing press when you think about step function changes in our civilization when we went from Hunter gatherers to an agricultural society. 'cause I WANNA be careful that we're not just sort of saying the answer is. Agriculture is no the end of the agricultural solution. If we do it right yeah. So let's start with what you see as the main pillars of the problem. How did we get to a point? Where the food environment is toxic. Because that's effectively. What you're saying right. Is that if you eat on default. You'RE GONNA probably eat the wrong things. It goes deeper than that. The food system as a house I began to dig in this rabbit hole. I realized it wasn't just causing chronic disease but it was causing most of the global crises that were thinking about in silos that are all connected and just quickly. Lay them out and it'd be good to go with them and details go through the podcast. But clearly food is the biggest driver of chronic disease affecting six hundred. Ten people is clearly the biggest driver of economic stress in this country in our twenty two trillion dollar debt. One third of all Medicare expenses over diabetes alone. One third of all of our federal budget is Medicare. Who was a company would be the biggest company in the world a trillion dollars annually? It's also driving climate. Change a food system end to end. Packet is the number one. Cause of climate change more than fossil fuels. It's causing massive environmental degradation loss about diversity. Plants pieces animal species livestock species. It's driving social injustice in many ways through how it affects our kids cognitive element and a million learn and there's huge academic achievement gaps lead to massive health disparities because poor communities are more affected by these foods and are more targeted by them and affects even behavior violence conflict. We such a divisive society today. Why did we have forty years ago? Wasn't like that and I think our diet has changed so radically. Not just in the last ten thousand years but in the last forty years with the advent of massive amounts of alter processed food and that's driving cognitive behavioral issues violence suicide conflict and even threatens our national security because seventy percent of military recruits are unfit to fight and reject it. So we've got these global problems that are affecting us and then of course that leads to massive political instability because of our food system of climate refugees because the food systems dry climate. What is that going to do? I mean think about it. We had a million Syrian refugees and that created a global crisis the UN estimates that within a decade or a few decades. We're going to have two hundred. Two billion climate refugees that's unimaginable. So how do we begin to grapple with these problems and think about the solutions and the beauty is since they're all connected by food they can all be solved by going to the root and fixing our food system and that's the leverage we have which is so exciting to me because it's not a doom and gloom the world's ending? It's yeah we identify the problem. How it's connected think of it as a system and then be able to solve the problem by going to the root dealing with these issues collectively. So which one of those would you like to start with? Would you like to start with sort of the impact of processed food on health? Which is probably not one that we need to spend a lot of time on. I don't think there's many people that would debate that are there. You'd be surprised. I mean there's twelve billion dollars spent by the food industry on nutrition quote research that Confuses People's muddies the waters at declares. That gatorade is great. Sports drink and sugar doesn't cause obesity and that I mean I could go on and on people are confused and then certainly are political leaders. Certainly get this and I think when you think of our healthcare system. It certainly doesn't get that. Food is medicine. You really think that political leaders. I know you've spent some time interacting with folks. Do you really think they don't get it or do you think that they're just in a difficult position. Which is how do you appease all of these constituents on the one hand a lot of the bills get paid by the entities that endorse these agendas and on the other end? They probably have empathy for the damage. This do you actually think. There's a lack of awareness. Do I mean forget about politicians academics? Doctors health professionals have no clue how powerful food is to heal disease. I mean they get that if you eat too much you're gonNA get fat right but that's about it or have you too much card. Maybe now maybe we'll get diabetes. But not even that I mean. The American Diabetes Association is still telling people eat a lot of carbohydrates. I think we have a real black of understanding of the power of food to cause disease in the power food-secure disease and so there's a real gap in that. I think it's starting to become in the public awareness. That food is medicine. Food is medicine working group in Congress clinic where I work now. Food is medicine initiative hospitals around the country. That are talking about this. It's more the exception than the rule so I do think people don't understand the magnitude. I mean if you Saito politician. What is the biggest killer on the planet? They're going to go smoking or lack of exercise. Maybe they're going to get this being overweight but they don't get that it's the ultra processed food that kills more people than smoking violence wars. Everything else so I mean. I think there was a disease like Bowler Zeka. That was killing. Eleven million a year. It would be talking about it. And it's just not in the conversation that's happening. Even for example Medicare Medicare for all. Has Anybody said the reason we have trouble? Medicare is because people are eating bad food and that we need to fix the food or no. Let's get Medicare for all that's repeal obamacare. I mean those aren't solutions. That would be a disaster if we could medicare for all because everybody second is going to bankrupt the country and let's fix why they're sick in the first

He was trying to milk milk. The clock a little bit right so we ended up with a think thirty rushing yards. He lost fifteen rushing yards my meals and the the over under was thirty five and a half he finished with twenty nine. Oh my God so we just take normal knees he would have been fine and normally I would say say.

Legalizing drinking at 18 may make college life safer

"Should legalize drinking at eighteen to make college life saver the first of all you're not talking about legalizing every bit of drinking at eighteen are you no I think really I'm talking about beer and wine and other low alcohol content beverages obviously it is a given I think that people in college are going to drink and they will find a way they may use fake ID's or whatever the trick of the day may be but they're going to drink so does it matter that much if they are drinking let's say beer and wine versus something harder yes so you're actually right they've not stop drinking and that's important understand but what they've done is they've changed their habits and there they move the hard alcohol particularly vodka because it's clear he doesn't have a set and an odor and if you can mix it with things like Gatorade and you're here are ETS or whoever might bust you for underage drinking are none the wiser and of course you can get just as as hooked on alcohol with something like beer but obviously if you're going to get so sick enough that that you might even die from taking that into much alcohol that's pretty hard to do with beer I speak unfortunately as someone who probably a push the limits of that at one time or another the more concentrated alcohol certainly does form a greater threat in terms of the death from a overdosing on alcohol are there other reasons why you would like to see this well I think it's the right thing to do I I think there are so many other rights we have age eighteen like the right to be shot in Afghanistan for your country or you can get married I mean the suggestion is that the suggestion you're mature enough to get married but yet not mature enough to have a beer seems pretty silly to me there are certainly in terms of obviously serving your country think that that argument is a is a powerful one but we should keep in mind that there was never a federal law that was passed that said the kids fourth you can bring to your twenty one know the feds what about that in a somewhat more devious and back and matter if you care to live like this I think it was devious what they did in nineteen eighty three as they said well you can keep the drinking age is wherever you want fifty you fifty states but if it's not twenty one you're not gonna get the highway funds and no state can live without highway funds Louisiana tried for a little while and and they threw in the towel couple years later yeah all right in terms of just exactly what you could drink it mean I guess the you the law would have to be pretty much based on alcohol content you get into things like a deal or vault liquor winds of various alcohol flee the law couldn't just say beer and wine correct I think there are some new popular drinks like spike seltzer's that are of the same content as a as a fairly weak beer so that would be okay and this is been done before I I mean there was a time where in certain states you could drink at age eighteen as long as you drink three point five fear which is extremely weak

Leslie Cohn-Wein & Rafael Conde on Designing the User Interface at Netlify

"Leslie you identify as a front in an engineer at a you focus more on design. But how much would you say your skills like sort of crossover like do you. You feel like you have really good design chops to in Rafeh. Do you do any like programming and stuff analysis to or are you mostly working in design tools and was mostly just implementing the design center like Kinda built or sorry designed by the designers maybe Leslie can answer. I yeah so you know design was actually Kinda. What led me into development side definitely have like a personal passion for the design side but I will say I spend most of my time in code or share on our react primarily and that's really where I do most of my work however I'm no stranger discussion abstract on some of the designed to us and and I would say is that we while we work in our own tools we do a lot of collaboration and have a lot of kind of day to day touch points with each other to to be talking throughout the entire life cycle? There's not like a hand off. Where design gets you know given to me to be implemented? It's like a constant conversation. Yeah Yeah Awesome makes no sense Rafael are you Do you consider yourself to be a programmer to or do you stick mostly to sort of design side of things I don't I don't aw I don't call myself a program but I know how to code in especially for side projects that usually code all the things but another another Fai thank God we I don't coat anymore as I used to do some light front and work but today a even I might play around with some pen or something quickly. I write the code for it but then I don't WanNa push code directly. Sometimes I do but it's like there's no need there's way more talented front end developers although we don't so lesbian the the Front End Engineering team. They don't really do a lot of design work in innocence of in in in design tools in also designers are not really touching the code but we are all talking about the same thing so we don't go over the details however design mockups are how we write the code but we are present in all the in the in the conversation about what we're building right yeah so we overlap a bit there yeah awesome that makes sense so I think maybe something that would be interesting to sort of walk through would just be taking maybe like an example of recent feature something that you've built and shipped analysis and maybe telling the story as to how it got started started and how much back and forth was and how the team collaborates and what it looks like actually ship something so we talked a little bit about this ahead of time and I know like one of the it features that recently was Kinda deployed and Nahla Fi that I know everyone analysis is really excited about is the new NETLA FI analytics feature. So what do you think about walking through that story. That'd be great yeah. analytics is our suicide analytics dashboard. you can activate for any any sites on nullify leave at nine dollars a month or site we will we when we were concept in this one of the things that I can really exciting was that front end was really sort of a part of the design from the beginning so the designer who is working on this sort of kicked it off with his own research so he he spent a Lotta time kind of brainstorming not not so much competitor analysis looking at existing dashboards collecting sort of visual usual you I examples of analytics and did some deeper analysis right. How did other solves the problems that we're trying to also trying trying to solve but how does that also different from our meads? Intellects is awesome but it still sort of at the very beginning of its life cycle as a product so it was also you know something like Google. Analytics is a lot deeper than than maybe what we were going to do so there was some complexity and the existing tools that we didn't necessarily need to need to copy over and one of the things that that that designer and I really did together with writing user stories about how people are actually gonNA use the future so that was something we started from the gecko rough. I don't know if you have anything the ad so I guess what I'm curious about. What did it look like to like? I kick off the feature from the very beginning so you mentioned that you know one of the first steps was kind of just sort of taking stock of the landscape and seeing you know what sorts of things are people doing. I'm did you have sort of a list of goals or anything like ahead of time like what are the problems that we're trying to solve by introducing this analytics feature yeah for sure Francis this berry man I have to give her a shoutout who's our head of product design in U. X. And she sort of helped concept the bigger picture of what are the stats that we want to show on the dashboard. What's what's feasible technically from our platform teams to be able to implement and then sort of figuring out how deep into that we were going so we had pretty specific nick ideas about what what we were showing a thirty days of data in particular at least to start off and then from there it was pretty open ended right so we we had to figure out what's the best way to display this data? What what type of chart or type of visuals asics my sense an go down that whole hope halfway so what did it look look for that I guess you could sort of call it a list of requirements to be like presented to the team? I'm did Francis present in any sort of like visual way or was it just more or like you know here's what we think is important and then someone on the visual design team sort of takes a stab at sort of trying to figure out what looked like to present that information or how does that sort of work well I can answer this usually like when we presented new features or a new projects that we're working on usually it doesn't come out of the blue like we as a team we are aware of what's in a roadmap and we were all align and we know what we were going to build a starts with a just a brief. What exactly are we trying to do? A why how does has at fit in our own you know our whole product roadmap and strategy but then we try especially in the beginning to try to be a bit free with what what we WANNA do. We don't WanNA impose too many. you know limitations in the beginning of the we'll get there because eventually when a ship writer there's some freedom to also go back and forth and also challenge a little bit some of the some of the brief as well but like I said we at the end of that we need to ship so eventually we close is that just try to fix the problem or whatever ship design the feature in this right at the beginning. We have a kickoff with everyone involved so that will be the design team in the front end team in the back in team in someone from support always so there's everyone is aware everyone has a voice voice in especially in the beginning of the project was talking about a collaborative process Khanna. Yeah it makes a lot of sense so so I guess like digging into sort of the the actual workflow and implementation of this thing does when you're building a new feature like this does it get like fully designed in a tool like sigma or sketch or something something before like the I j Sachs's written or whatever for the react components or or does this sort of like gatorade on like intend like Leslie when you started like actually writing the code for this sort of thing like how fleshed out did it feel like the feature was from your perspective yeah so sometimes it differs depending on what the product is for analytics in particular we had pretty solid mocks before we started to get too deep into implementation and a reason for that was that we sort of had to prioritize ties what it was we needed in the U I in order to be able to choose some of the technical decisions that we were making rate so with analytics we needed some sort of charting library. we could have written things ourselves we could have done it all on SDG. We talked about d three right. There are all these options can technically to how we wanted to go about implementing we also had deadline and we wanted to get this into people's hands more quickly we wanted as many engineers on the team as possible to be able to contribute to the feature Matt means people who made not have deep Sag Knowledge even though everyone on our team is very very smart you know all of those things kind of went into this particular feature so it made sense to sort of have that you I design kneel down a little bit more before making those decisions once I had a those designs I spent some time prototyping a couple of different versions with different charting libraries to sort of figure out what was going to work but us four sign cool so I think that's actually an interesting point something that I I wondered a lot about teams like the team had natalie by as someone who works on personal projects and open source and stuff you see like there's all these great libraries for solving all these different problems but most of the time these libraries come with a lot of like baked in sort of U.

Are Sports Drinks the Best Way to Replace Electrolytes?

"I recently got an email from Philip who wrote I work hard outside. Every we day and I sweat a lot. I drink two three liters of gatorade zero for the electrolytes. I choose the artificially sweetened drinks to avoid consuming too much sugar bigger but are the artificial sweeteners or other ingredients in these strings bad for me. Philip brings up several interesting questions. When is it necessary to replace as the electrolytes that we lose when perspire is a sport drink like gatorade the best way to do this. And what about the sugar or the artificial sweeteners in these drinks. Are they harmful to help me sort through all of this. I recently sat down with sports. nutritionist Kelly Pritchett Dr Pritchett is an associate professor in nutrition attrition and Exercise Science at Central Washington University. She's worked with elite and collegiate athletes as well as with active individuals and she's an athlete herself and in today's show I'll share some of the insights and information that I gleaned from my conversation with Kelly. Let's just bracket for a moment the question about sugar sugar versus artificial sweeteners and talk first about what happens when we sweat according to Dr Richard Your Body might produce anywhere from half leader two three leaders of perspiration per hour how much you sweat will depend on your level of exertion and also the conditions how hot and or humid it is but it will also depend on your level of fitness and how accustomed to those environmental conditions depending on how long and how hard you're sweating the loss of fluids could cause you to become dehydrated and this can be remedied simply by taking in plain water but of course. You're not only losing water when you sweat sweat. You're also losing electrolytes specifically sodium magnesium calcium potassium and chloride doctor notes that you lose far more sodium than anything else average sodium losses are one thousand milligrams per hour and that's the equivalent of almost half a teaspoon of table salt excessive and extended sweating can potentially lead to dangerously low blood sodium levels a serious condition called Hypo Nutri Mia in this situation drinking too much plain water without any electrolytes can actually make the situation worse by further deluding the sodium concentration of the blood so who is at risk of hype Nutri Mia well if you're playing a set of tennis or running a five K or you're out in the garden for a couple of hours and you're otherwise healthy you're you're probably find drinking plain water but if you're going to be sweating hard for more than sixty to ninety minutes. Pritchard says it's a good idea to think about replacing those electrolytes as well one easy way to replace electrolytes simply the eat something salty some salted nuts or sunflower seeds for example so in Phillips Case Ace he might choose to take a break every couple of hours and have a quick snack or a meal along with plenty of water. A salty snack will quickly replace the sodium. You may have lost as well as the smaller amounts of other minerals now for athletes engaged in endurance sports. Eating may not be feasible and that's where sports drinks might might seem to make sense these sport drinks can help replace the fluids you're losing but they might not provide enough sodium to completely keep up with the losses regular gatorade for example contains just four hundred and fifty milligrams of sodium her leader so if you're losing a thousand milligrams of sodium per hour you'd have to to drink half a gallon of gatorade every hour to keep up powerade which is another popular brand is even lower with only two hundred and twenty five milligrams of sodium per leader. Dr Pritchett notes that there are some sports drinks as well as gels and gums that are specially formulated for endurance athletes and they have a higher concentration concentration of sodium. You can also add a pinch of sea salt to your water bottle or your sports drinks. She says to increase the sodium content and finally there are salt salt and electrolyte replacement tablets that athletes often use to compensate for those losses. So how much sodium should you take injuring exercise well according to preach at the amount of salt that you lose an hour of exercise is a lot less than the typical American consumes each day and probably doesn't need to be he replaced but if you are working in hot conditions for hour after hour or engaged in intense extended exercise how much sodium per hour where should you be taking in says this can vary greatly from individual to individual athletes who are very salty sweaters. She explained to me you can actually see a white ish film on their skin after exercise but a liter of fluid and a thousand milligrams of sodium per hour extended heavy sweating is a good rule rule of thumb and that sodium can come from food from sport drinks salt tablets sport gels salted water any combination of those things and you can check the nutrition facts label to see how much sodium they contain remember that your post workout meal will also go along way toward replenishing those
