Three neat venture rounds, and Alibaba’s latest
"All right. So talking about the weekend well, here's what's up as the American election looms and the holidays beckon things kind of slowed down this weekend. Now, it's a little bit soon to say that this is the new normal, but certainly, it felt more like a traditional late October weekend if that makes sense. So posts covering new rounds where little bit light there wasn't a lot of news. There wasn't a big acquisition that drove the Monday morning chat cycle so here. Are Some things that did happen that really do matter but I think we can all exhale just a little bit as we head into the second half of October. So according to TECH WRENCH DOT com, you may have heard of it. alibaba group is going to spend about three point six dollars to take a controlling stake in Sun art. One of China's largest big box supermarket chains after transaction is complete, alibaba will own about seventy two percent of art this calm i. Because the Amazon wholefoods I, mean this seems to be relatively similar. What's interesting is Alibaba actually invest in son are back in two, thousand, seventeen million just under three billion for just over a third of the company. Now, this matters because that's part of Alibaba's quote new retail strategy new retail kind of blurs the lines between online and offline commerce. This should sound pretty familiar to all of us have seen Amazon, to this inside of its now big buck stores and other people are trying to do curbside pickup even small businesses it appears. That like this e commerce world that we all think everything's going to become we'll still have a larger physical footprint than we probably anticipated. So Fun to see what China is doing. Think about, what happens our marcus down the road Alibaba out a lot of money even during relatively bad economic times worth catching up on and it kind of good news this morning space x fired another sixty satellites into the sky as part of its starlink project to speak at all really moved the boonies when Musk and company done bring internet? Everywhere. So turn to funding around this morning, our bread and butter I found a few really really cool ones despite the talk of a slowing new cycle anyways in no particular. Here are three start ups that are funny runs out that are worth checking into if you have the time. We're GONNA START WITH API, which is a I F I. M printers pronounced eight five new they have announced a fourteen point five million dollar round this morning the company is calling this a pre series b according to crunch base news, which sounds like a series a. plus maybe a series B. minus or really just called a series B.. It's fourteen point five, million dollars any investors in the round include qualcomm ventures, serve ventures, translink capital, and a new investor clinic quench base news called Plum. I never heard of plum alley or serve adventures just goes to show how many theses firms there are out there right now, all that. Aside, what does if I do? Well, they build checkout free experiences for consumers. Essentially, they allow other folks to build and operate autonomous stores. So my read is like this Amazon go but for everybody crunch news post up on this, according to that article, fourteen stores from a fire in the market lots more coming off of capital here. Exciting to see the Sir Technology Spread more broadly I'm not entirely sold on it yet. But of course, always hard to know what's going to be the future and a lot of people are betting that this is that next up, we have law Maddox, a San, Diego based startup that is building software for lawyers kind of marketing crm. Suffer Lawyers. It has raised two point, five million dollars in seed funding always nice seen actually seed funding sized seed round very rare in twenty twenty. Why do we care about this? Well, we've known that for a couple of years vertical sats, which is software aimed at one particular slice of the market one particular. Law or like gardening has been pretty hot for a while. So why not this lawyers have money target them take some of that money gee-gee funding round was led by any act ventures forefront venture partners, and then of course, rebel ventures and bridge venture partners took part I know about half of those firms again. So many VC firms out there kind of crazy according to TC. A big part of what law maddox wants to do was help automate marketing tasks for law firms to big part of their business of nurture clients to the backslapping handshaking. Stuff really does matter even in the digital realm and like you said, alerts have money. So this round probably GonNa work out pretty well law maddox. And for a third run, we're GONNA leave the US and talk about cheaper which raised twelve million dollars. Now I try to proud correctly on the show because it's respectful. In this case, it's H. I. E. R., which is not chipper nor is it Go cheaper best shot. anyways. This is an ECOMMERCE platform for merchants in Latin America it series a was raised from wind ventures and two groups called Montes and Kosic ventures. The startup claims his built quote, the largest brand never of digitized corner stores in Latin
Tanya Rad Breaks Down 'The Bachelor' Matt James' Contestants
"Had Chris. Harrison. On from the Bachelorette I bet you didn't know that I saw Chris with the shirt off at the beach. You didn't share that Info with US until I was waiting to confront him. Always wind confront him. He and his girlfriend having a romantic little day at the beach and then. I interrupted that's right. I interrupted their romance. I mean it was just by chance to see the guy I'm like that is Chris Harrison from the drain. Did you like just did you? Know. We distance spoke and then I said go enjoy your love. Joy Romance. Call me if there's a wedding got the host of the Bachelor about GonNa Wedding Right. All right now anyway, we had him on and he keeps saying the Promo. eclair congratulations you single handedly blew up the Bachelorette. He also said that when he found out whatever it is, she did he was not angry or upset about it. It was a challenge to him. So me it sounds like something happened where like oh? Gosh. How are we going to fill these hours of the whole season up? We gotTA figure out a pivot but he was not you know it was a pointless interview 'cause he gave nothing. Like, it was just for him to talk about we saw each other with our shirts off that was. That was the substance that happened. So you missed nothing if you hear. True but the guy says, of course, can't tell you anything. Well, of course, don't book yourself then Chris Well, he gave us a little sneak peek at the bachelor season because he said that he was there at location and he says he's at the in the Bachelor bubble right now he looks like he's yeah he he said there are four seasons where he is. It looks like the leaves returning some guessing he's in upstate New York. Now. Right. The leaves turn there. Anyway I bring all of this up because we have the potential suitors for the first, what the first black male bachelor in the franchise history, and so bit a black male bachelor. Correct. There has never been a black male bachelor it's hard to believe. It's the truth. It's the truth and shooters. I don't want it to my own horn but beep I did pick dale or Clare. Season even before the season even like was filming or anything. Clare's the Bachelorette well, I know but the rumor in the rumor mill, he seems to be just the name people are holding onto yourself because it's not been confirmed. Nothing's been confirmed none of Kim term to on rumor I'M GONNA to on rumor been onto onto. Okay. So they have now rolled out the girls for the season up the bachelor and they're doing things differently now, they basically ruled them out on facebook, which is so interesting only put their photo and like their name and their age they used to give like I dunno just used to be so different, very formal with the bachelor. Now, it's kind of a little more informal on facebook people can leave comments and stuff. So my pick for Matt, James Is. She's a thirty, two year old from Ethiopia and I just the VIBE I get from her photo. She is just like super q Yeah. Like I get this like happy from her and so they did put up more. Than I think we'll end up being on his season because it was more than forty and that's they usually don't do that. So I, don't know if it's for Cova reasons or or whatnot but and then we are learning that one of the potential women for Matt may have dated him over the summer. Her name is Madison Nelson and allegedly she was dating Matt. While his best friend Tyler Cameron was dating gee-gee had dean. If you guys remember that love story I know. It's so good. I know. and. So she comes in and I don't know I'm kind of like not into these people coming back that don't have they're not on the same playing field. I. Feel like all the suitors should be on the same playing field no, what are you? By Saint Plainfield just. So I'm clear because this this Madison Nelson Dated Matt James That doesn't says she has a history with them. Yeah. There's a conference on the ice has been broken right? That's stacking the deck I agree with now I'm up in arms. I'M UP IN ARMS TO I'm not super I don't really like that someone on the show. This is all allegedly, but there are some photos of them. So they definitely know of each other we don't know. That gives you an advantage because you have a connection of some sort. You have blind I'm with you on one hundred percent I'm protesting. You guys, watch it and tell me. Yeah,
What Are The Best Probiotics For Children With Diarrhoea
"So, if you've heard a lot about probiotics, but you don't know what they are. They are really live micro organisms so they can be bacteria, but they can also be funky and it sounds really what you might be thinking. Why is it so? Popular if they are live that too. Now, these are actually good friendly bacteria and they do normally live in our dynasty system. So many live in the gut and they can also be found in breast milk. So they are considered to be generally safe to take for adults but also. For Children and in as few if you take them in a certain amount duty to take them in reasonable quantities, then it's store that they could give a health benefit benefit to the child or to the other taking the probiotic supplement, and of course, products that come in drops usually for babies. Then they might come in sachets for children and you can also get them Naga drink, but also capsules and so on. But Dave Begin to focus on. Diarrhea and I wanted to focus on this area because it's one of the best areas dont probiotics have been studied in and I'm talking about clinical trials where there's also been reviews of all of the collection of. Clinical trials and experts now. have. Come together to say, yes, there are specific strains the have been shown by research to say that they can have a role in helping. Manage symptoms of diarrhea now is really important for me to point out before we carry on that if you want to take a robotic or give your child of probiotic to manage diarrhea, then you must always follow the advice off your medical doctor or other healthcare professionals. Of example, if the recommended that you give a specific oral rehydration solution. Awad fluids. Antibiotics and other medications then you must always continue to give those. So the provide providers are not for replacing all of those other important medical treatments. It's more to give a long sided, and of course, if your child has a specific medical condition, then always always run it by your medical team. Before you start to give a property, it's always good to just keep your healthcare. Medical team informed about anything that you're trying. Particularly if your child has a medical condition that sort of. Has An effect on the immune function. So all the probiotics can have benefit on immunity. There are specific strains on that. We're not going to really dive into that today we'll save that for different podcast episode, but there may be some scenarios where your could you consultant, Dr Titian or medical team. Actually hold off of the probiotics at this stage. So thinking about how they really work the way they work is that when you give your child a probiotic supplement, they feed on the fibers offer news called prebiotics that your child eat, and they make lots and lots of short chain acids which helps them feed. It helps them grow and the live in the got, and they can sort of impact on the immune function. They can help prevent the growth of bad bacteria if you like and help the growth of the good bacteria, which will then help with the health outcomes that we wanted to see. So in this case, we want to see Eve giving approach is going to help with diarrhea and the most beneficial effects that we're really going to be talking about his which probiotics are going to help reduce the incidence, but also the severity of the diarrhea at perhaps scene for how for how long your child might have diarrhea four. So the first strain that I want to talk to you about today is one called Lactobacillus Ram noses g g now they have the names they really sound. You'd think what on Earth does that mean but once you start to read a lot more about per ballot you kind of tend to remember these strange but the research shows that this particular strain can reduce the risk of infections and antibiotic. Dahri. So sometimes, you might be prescribe antibiotics to fight other infections, but the side effects of antibiotics is that each child might have diarrhea. So for this instance, you could give a probiotic supplement like lactobacillus from nurses, G G so strain. So just remember if you're looking for a probiotic, the packaging might not say lactobacillus reminisces gee-gee in might have a brand name but this species or the type the scientific name of the probiotic that you want is lactobacillus from noses gee-gee
"gee gee" Discussed on Rooster Teeth Podcast
"Police guys. Lowering. Yeah crazy right next from two thousand, eight, just two years before king speech the Dark Knight. Two thousand eight the dark. Knight. With Dark Knight. PG Thirteen. PG Thirteen. Yeah. Everyone's saying pg thirteen thirteen is. Oh. My Gosh. said it cool. It is PG thirteen. Now can you believe it? Can you believe it should have been are probably alley All. Got It. Yeah. Got That one congratulations next two years before the Dirk night snakes on a plane Mar.. PG Thirteen. Are. A heavy. In a PG, thirteen can do once you get one F- PG thirteen I thought it was Fu gap and on Ama-. Lot. Asked right in that movie. Also. There's like he's out. Getting Bid Dix tits and stuff where he does say motherfucking twice in that line right these motherfucking snakes off my mother fucking plane. You too. So does that mean this podcast is now rated R. Because you just said that twice oh no, not because call the teen. Americans pussies. It's still it's still rated. PG. For Poltergeist. So snakes point Chris you're saying pg thirteen everyone else's saying are is that right I guess I'll yeah I'll. Okay the answer is our and it is exactly for that reason, you can't say motherfucker can you believe that I think the? Father wanted to change that line to try to get it to PG thirteen but Samuel Jackson didn't want who can. Do that movie for that line yeah. A big reason that they wanted our is that they pushed for it to be are they actually wanted to have the R rating because it was a b movie and they wanted people to go and experience that be moved. So it makes sense to me so. I only have a couple left. So bear with me here from nineteen, eighty, nine, all dogs go to heaven. PG Dogs dying are. Really you guys don't know that movie. I. Don't know you don't although it's going to heaven. Can Can I have a brief synopsis? I think it's Burt Reynolds and Dom deluise is dogs who died in. Comeback is that kind of only like a little girl. Team. They've saved a little girl's an animated movie. It's like a cartoon movie. Yeah. Oh Really O. J. PG thirteen. PG. Chris. What do you think PG PG PG okay and Gavin is the on. Got It right at G it is rated G., which is crazy because it scared the shit out of me when I was without even sing I think I think one hundred percents still think you've done done very well let me see. Yes, you are you're running the table on this Gavin, you could be in the MPAA and we would never know identify now that's incredible I stated early on that, we've gotten more harsh with ratings and more sensitive to things that a movie from eighty nine was rated G. But an animated movie from the two thousands ice age is rated PG. Something to think about IBM PA. Adamy. In thought that's for kids. Know even what I? Like there's a scene where they're like, they go to hell or something I dunno know scare the shit. fucking. Crazy. Next up. I. Only have two more from nineteen sixty planet of the apes, the original arena now planet of the Apes. Yeah state in Spanish you can ask US PG thirteen. Is there anything really bad in that movie Gee I'm GonNa go gee. Okay Say Damn Dirty Apes. All that is true that is. Was Damn considered a naughty word for children spend. This was nine, hundred, Sixty, eight. So you tell me. PG. Mama said Gee Gus you're gonNA say Gee Gee. Guess you're GONNA say Gee. Okay saying Gee Christie said PG, please EP Gavin you said, Gee and Barbara said PG thirteen visit pg thirteen, but it is sixty eight. So it's probably wasn't gonNA stick to thirteen. Okay the answer. Plenty of the thinking sixty is G. Is successfully running the table. This is the very last one. Other pressures. All Up to Gavin. Don't blow it. Everyone's watching you. Your hair is right that on purpose. Everyone sees what you look like you're going to. They're going to know if you mess this up. From nineteen seventy five. Jaws. Jaws nineteen seventy-five five, what is the rating PG PG PG? PG even though that's like. Just. There's. Common and tits there's nudity. And a fricken leg comes off an etch shock blows up spoil. I'M GONNA. Say PG PG. I mean it's probably PG. But I'm I'm still going to stick with PG thirteen just for funsies. Okay and there's no chance of me winning. So why not? Right. Chris said PG. Might be thirteen wouldn't it? A close up on, Gavin Gavin. We just close on get Gavin. It came out in nineteen, seventy five you named all the things you named. You said PG, and then you named all the stuff that was in this movie..
Broadband for All?
"I have two guests joining us I I want to say welcome to agree to disagree to G. G soon TJ year distinguished fellow at Georgetown. Law and you are recognized as one of the nation's foremost advocates for open and affordable Internet, welcome to intelligence squared. Thanks, John and your opponent in the conversation. It's different from saying opponent in a debate, but the opposing view in the conversation is brought to us by Christopher Christopher welcome to intelligence squared, and to agree to disagree your professor at Penn Law, and among the leading authorities on law and technology today. Great to have you with us. Thank you for having me. So I WANNA start by putting before the two of you, a series of very short questions and all I want to hear from you is whether you agree with the statement says or whether you disagree and I'm going to start. Statement number one for millions of Americans pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet to substitute for or enhance variety of normally face to face activities such as getting an education being seen by a doctor going to the bank shopping for basic needs again. The pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet for those things. Do you agree or disagree with that Statement Agree Chris Totally agree? Second Statement, the thirty three million Americans who lack broadband service in their own homes are disadvantaged by that fact, G G I don't agree with the number, but I agree with the statement. Correct me on the member. So thirty, three million, a third of American households don't have Internet access. The FCC's numbers, which are actually less than thirty three million. They're closer to eighteen million grossly under understate the number of Americans. Who Don't have access to the broadband internet? A thirty three million is too little as well. I testified in front of Congress that it's closer to one hundred, forty, one million okay Microsoft estimates that is closer to one, hundred, sixty, two million all right so somewhere between thirty three million in one hundred sixty two million Americans lack of broadband service in their own homes. Are disadvantaged by that fact. Do you agree or disagree great? Chris without disputing the numbers at this point are those without broadband in their homes disadvantaged by that fact, absolutely the third question, the user experience on faster broadband connection is preferable to the experience on a slower connection. Kiji, agree a hundred percent. Chris wanted to know more about what you mean faster and slower the generally. Yes, it's always better to be faster. There is diminishing returns. We're GONNA talk about gigabit speeds at some point I presume, and basically there's a point where you just don't need any more speed, but within a certain range absolutely okay. The fourth question broadband service should be seen as a right underlaw gee-gee. I think it's essential a writer very very legalistic term I think every American should have Internet access whether it's a right like the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's hard for me to agree with that statement depending on what you mean by right. If, you're asking me if everybody should have it whether it's an essential service, I agree one hundred percent. Asking me it's. Is it a right under the bill of rights? I would disagree. Chris I think Z. said a perfectly. It's an important service, but I don't think for him. Getting rights, discourse helps okay. It's very interesting. Point is that you've agreed fundamentally basically on all four questions so far are fifth question and our final question, and that's the one that we're going to use our motivating question for the beginning of the conversation at least Congress should guarantee broadband access for all gee-gee agree. Chris I think that the question is how. I tend to generally agree, but for example states have been very active in the space I want to credit the things that they're doing this room through a lot of different actors, but does Congress have very constructive role in Congress doing more? Yes, but guarantee is too strong a word. Would you say I think so? You know there's a lot of the central services that we have and the idea of a guarantee means that if I were choose to move on top of a mountain. Very far away from everything else. I'm entitled to ask the Government to provide service, no matter what the cost at certain levels and With a number of alternatives, there's examples where we have to make trade offs, and by saying the government is obligated to provide every citizen to guarantee every citizen access to internet speeds comparable what you get cities, no matter where they choose to live. Is a choice we can make in society. It's just a very expensive one
The Grammar Of Graphics
"Hey Katie Hi ben high you doing? What are we talking about today? We're talking about the grammar of graphics. The Grammar of graphics yeah. This is a visual episode in audio form. So let's see how this goes. This can be okay. You're listening to linear digressions. Okay so I know what? The term grammar means as it applies to language It's kind of the the rules about how you would construct sentences and I'm sure that there are many people who find better than me but that's kind of how I think about it. Yeah that when we are using language to communicate. There's an order in which we place subjects in verbs and objects. There's a recurring to language in the sense that you can have phrases. That have substructure. There's also Orders in which things tend to appear like I would say I would always say the big black car I would never say the black big car. Yes grammar is yes this this thing. That's a little bit hard to define but once you start to think of it is pretty common to think of it. In terms of the rules of language I actually was reading. Something really interesting about this It's so I just found it a tweet by Matthew Anderson things native English speakers. No but don't know why we know and the quote is adjectives in English. Absolutely have to be in the following order opinion size age shape color origin material purpose noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver WHITTLING KNIFE. But if you mess with that word order in the slightest. You'll sound like a maniac. It's an odd thing that every English speaker uses that list but almost none of us could write it out yeah. I think I've heard something similar to so I think that was what I would like drawing on a little bit in that Great Green Great Dragons. No Great Green Dragons. Yeah exactly so. We're not talking about language in this talk of graphics. What how what does that mean yes? So that's what we're going to spend the next fifteen minutes talking about a little bit but the rough idea here. Is that so just like? There's an expectation that you have about the word order or the construction of phrases when you're listening to someone speaker when you're reading a sentence. There's a similar idea. Perhaps for visualizing drawing visualizations of data or consuming visualizations of data. Things that you expect to see whether or not you even really think about it. Or when you're composing a visualization things that you're planning for or taking into account that again. Maybe you aren't thinking about but this comes up in a really deep way if you are say. Dealing with data visualization software at a at a pretty fundamental level. So for those of you who are into our universe and particularly The tidy verse Hadley Wickham 's corner of the our universe. You're probably familiar with a package called G. G Plot to which is a visualization library. In our that's can famously makes very beautiful graphics especially with its its defaults make for really nice graphics. the gee-gee NJIT PLOT TO REVERSE TO GRAMMAR OF GRAPHICS and own. And actually. Yeah the most of the research that I did for. This episode was reading a twenty five page paper. That had they wickham wrote about how he thinks about. And how the field a general thinks about the grammar of graphics. Data visualization says where. We're going to talk about very cool. I don't even know where to start in thinking about this. This is this is GonNa be neat. Yeah this this was a pretty challenging Topic for me to try to understand because it gets into theory pretty quickly of like what is a facet and what is the scale and what is A. What's the difference between a mapping to an aesthetic and coordinate system I think There's certainly a lot to unpack if you're just really excited about this idea but rather than getting into some of these kind of esoteric concepts especially concepts that are ESA teric without having examples to look at. I wanted to illustrate the main pieces of the grammar of graphics as highly working for example talks about it using an example of a visualization. That probably a lot of people are really familiar. With and how that illustrates a few of the big important concept that again. We all kind of take for granted probably in our day to day. Visualizations Okay so what's the. What's the example graphic then? All right let's talk about a stacked histogram stacked histogram yet can you? Can you describe it for me? Yes so let me give you an example of stacked histogram ice to make all the time when I was a physicist so when I was a physicist we used to make lots and lots of plots where what you are trying to do was look at distributions of particles that you are getting in your detector and in general there were lots of different kinds of particles that were classified as what we would call background so these were types of particles that were you know interesting but not what we are really searching for and then there were in certain situations. You'll be looking for signal particles as well so this might be like a higgs bows on if you're doing a heck search and so when you were creating visualizations of your data. What you're looking for is okay. Do we have a distribution of data? That's more consistent with there. Only being background present or does it look more consistent with background plus signal for the second cases like Oh maybe we discovered some new physics or something so we would think a lot about how to visualize background and when you're doing that analysis you tend to have different kinds of particles that are coming in from different places in your detector and so if you just look at one of those systems at a time you're going to get an incomplete picture of all of the particles instead what you wanted to layer them all on top of each other so that you have yes so that you have like a picture of the overall distribution of the particles that you see but you also have them stratified by the different types of physics processes that they correspond to and so you're kind of stacking each of those strata on top of each other and you have a visualization that shows you know each of them separately but also all of them adding together. That's roughly what a histogram is God. I think I've seen these before are I'm sure I've seen them in many places but I'm thinking about when you look at when you do a software release and you look at all of the different All of the different computers that are running the software. And what version. They're on and you can see how people have upgraded. Each version of the software will be represented by different color. And over time. You'll see them kind of go and peak and then as new software later is released than the previous version will kind of trail off and The I guess the representation that you're talking about is showing all of that in a single graph with time. Let's say being the x axis and in in my example. It's always at one hundred per cent hike because every user is on some version but you can see the dip the I guess the distribution at any given point of those versions yeah or a few decided to represent it instead of as a percentage of the whole if you had your y. Axis was allowed float and instead it was the total number of users using that system than you could imagine like the overall rate could actually go up and down as users join. Leave your your system or you're right are using your software or whatever so. I haven't I have an image in my head now. Okay great and so hopefully for most of the folks who are listening to this. Hopefully you do too. But if you don't or if you're really struggling to think about what a stacked histogram might look like an might be worth taking like five seconds to Google this on your phone to see like a mental snapshot because it's I don't imagine that the rest of this will make tons of sense if you have no idea. We're talking about so okay So stacked histogram how do we think about this in terms of the grammar of graphics so let me layer in a few of the fundamental ideas of grammar graphic so either taking place in a very explicit order to the first layer the most foundational layer of when you need to make? Data visualization is What is the data? Set that you'RE GONNA BE VISUALIZING. And how does that map from The the variables in the data set to a set of aesthetics. So what's the data set? Let's talk about that first. Let's use my example of. Let's use your example. Actually I think that's probably a little bit more familiar to our listeners than like a particle physics date set but instead we have some notion of a data set that has all of the users of our software through time and the type of what did he say. It was like the version of the software that they're using yet and actually. Can I make this a little bit? Meta and tweak this and we'll say this could be a linear digressions episode downloads. Like we can go. We can go into our hosting provider and we can see how many people download on on a given day and so of course the day after we release an episode we see a lot of downloads and then maybe two months ago by and now that episode is a small sliver.

Just Enough To Be Dangerous
"So let's start out about the Zenko on from last week's podcast episode so this Cohen is called announcement and it goes was like this tons on route. Sixty postal cards on the last day of his life and asks independent to mail them then he passed away. The cards words read. I am departing from this world. This is my last announcement tons on July twenty seventh eighteen ninety two. This is an interesting one. I picked it because it's a little different than than most of the Cohen said. I've shared before and for me. The very first thing to come to mind is what would I be doing with the time I had on my last day. Would I be writing sixty postal cards on the last stay of my life and asked him to be mailed out the other thing that stood out to me was all his says is MD party from this world. And this is my last announcement name Amo date and to magic writing him writing this sixty times. It was comical to me when I read it at an part of why it was comical. Oh because I don't know why someone would do that. I don't know if there are cultural understandings of this. That don't make makes sense to me because of where when I was raised versus you know where where and when the story arose. I don't know but I thought thought it was interesting to share some of the thoughts that came from this in the Patriots Group and the discussion. That was going on in there so I WANNA share a couple of of these because I hadn't really thought about it this way. The first thought comes from Nancy. Who says I'd like to comment about the Zenko on announcement and then she goes on to say? Wow to come to the end of your life like tons on. This Cohen spoke to me about living a life with no regrets in making the preparations for your death. Then she goes on to say took a course a few years ago following Stephen Levine's book a year to live. We met monthly and prepared for our death. As though we were all given the news that we had a year to live. It was a tough journey to go through but helped me to see what I was resisting. In this truth that we all die by the result from this personal study was a greater appreciation for the life. I have now and more at peace with death as I believe tons John was now. That's an aspect of this that I haven't thought about. She was impressed with the preparation that went into Tons Zahn preparing for his death because most of us don't prepare for it right at it comes as a surprise and the only way we would prepare for it as we. We happen to have a terminal illness or something that really gives us an advanced warning. Then it's coming and I think in a way you know if you can prepare for it you're you're one of the lucky ones. Most people don't get to. They don't get to say their final goodbyes. They don't get to make peace with Parents or siblings or loved ones. They don't don't they. Don't get the chance to go. Check off a few things from their bucket. Lists they just live life thinking that They've got plenty of time and then boom boom they're gone and I hadn't thought about this aspect of it with with tons on if he's writing his His announcements here that he's departing. He's obviously done his preparation. I hadn't thought about it from that perspective that It's it's cool that he had the chance to do his last announcement to be prepared repaired for his death so that to me tells me that he had been thinking about it and perhaps thinking about it often to the point where it's not this scary. You think that it's like oh no. When is it coming? So that's that's kind of a fun way to to think about that. And then the other thought comes from Stefan also in the Patriot group and and he says Tanzanian knew his time was due. He mailed the cards at the appropriate time which was acceptance of his immediate fate. My feeling is that he simply felt his life was complete. Wasn't going to deny death or trying to avoid it here. It is why not embrace it by embracing it. He didn't leave his body. Okay with any suffering. At least over his death and one could hope that if he was so in tuned with his end that he didn't have any suffering left in his life either if this is true and he had no suffering left in his life mailing these cards right before his death could have very well been his moment of realizing enlightenment and now that that's a fun thought again. I hadn't really thought about it from that perspective because I was kind of laughing at the whole concept of of writing the departure announcement you know in our day and age. We see this on facebook from time to time rag where someone says. Hey here's this announcement. I'M GONNA BE LEAVING ACE book and I WanNa make sure all of you. Now that I'm leaving and we we almost laugh at that because it's like okay thank you. And so I- correlated those thoughts when I read this co on thought. There's there's tons on. Hey thanks tons on You're leaving but it hadn't crossed mind that we're not talking about just a departure like death for a Lotta people as a very very big deal and for him. It seemed like I was interpreting it. Like maybe it's not a big deal to like. Hey I'm leaving. Just say now. And here's the announcement that says this is the DAMN MD partying. It wasn't even like let me tell you my final thoughts on this or that it was just a very simple thing and the more I think about this the more uh I realize you know I kinda hope that's how it is for me that If I knew today was my last day you know. I don't know that I would have a whole lot left to say because if I did. Why haven't I been been saying that up until now I? I would like to think that I've been living my life in a way if the end came and it was today or tomorrow they wouldn't be a whole lot that's been left unsaid. The people that I love now that I love them them and and my announcement could be as simple as hey. I'm departing from this world. This is my last announcement and then my name and the date so anyway for me. This Cohen gives me a lot to think about In terms of my life and my preparations from debt for death. And how am I living my life life with the knowledge that it could end at any moment so this was a fun one to explore and to discuss after getting some of the insight from the numbers of the group and Just playing with this a little bit more on in my head. So that's the Zenko on announcement so so now. I want to jump into the topic that I wanted to discuss today. which is just enough to be dangerous now? I think I would assume that many of you have heard this expression of knowing knowing something just enough to be dangerous. I've heard this in the context. Probably most often referring to languages in the in the context of learning two languages. There's this expression that I know just enough to be dangerous. which implies that I know enough that I can start talking in? Someone's going to think that I speak speak the language so then they'll start speaking to me then. I might not understand them because I didn't know as much as I thought that I knew so that that's where I think that expression that's where I hear most in that context of language but I I've thought about this recently because this week or over the weekend my youngest daughter gee-gee four started to learn how to ride a bike and I took the training wheels off for her and then my wife would would stand down on one end of the road and I would stand kind of on the other and we would essentially help Digi get going and then kind of fear ear her off in the direction of the other and the one standing on their would catch her turnaround. We'll do it the same. She was learning to ride the bike. And of course at that age agents. It's a very exciting thing. And as soon as she realizes she can do that wants. She's like okay. Now let me do it alone and it reminded me of how we have this tendency that soon as we start to learn something and we did it once or twice in. It's working out. Of course we think okay good I got it and that's that stage of knowing something just enough to be dangerous in this case I was thinking with concern like. Oh let's let's not let her just just go all out because she may have mastered writing from from my wife to me from me to my wife but what happens when she tries to go up the sidewalk sidewalk or when she tries to turn or you introduce some new variable. And that's the moment when she knew just enough to be dangerous and can follow they get hurt. And I've experienced this another aspects of life as well with teaching people to Paraglider Para Motor. Paragliding is is a difficult sport to get into anyone who knows how to do. It will probably tell you that it looks kind of easy and I think think a lot of people who get into the sport. Get into it thinking they're gonNA learn in it's going to be easy but the truth is takes a lot of time in a lot of energy in a lot of effort her and in some ways A lot of patients because people start to learn one aspect of it. Then you start out learning how to had a kite that wing Over your head. It's essentially a giant fabric wing and with the wind if floods overhead. kind of like a kite. Would learn to control

Another that Kobe's death breath be a call for us to run into the arms of one another and serve each of 'em be humble and drop are false egos us before our time comes. We must learn from death. Death feeds life. If you understand have the courage to love. Even if people don't love you back this is the love Christ is trying to get us to challenge. People are fake love. Let's be real. He'll put another facebook post on. I wanted to read it to you as I was lying in embiid just looking scrolling through my phone I said as we born Kobe. Bryant's death. Let's remember that tomorrow's never promised to us. Yes we must spend our lives in the way of God and express our gift to the world like. Kobe did with his talent. All of us have a rendezvous with death less reflect on his death as a call to action for our own lives and then I put Hashtag time time and how we use it and the time and how we use it as exceedingly important because we do not know the day or time that the give of life will call it back and just like that. Kobe Bryant is gone just like that and the twinkling of an eye just like that. I wrote another post I want to share with you. I said life is short. Every moment you are alive is a sacred moment. Spend your time loving your moment. And God's universe and inspire others to bring the God inside of them out for the world to see Kobe. Bryant expressed his God hood in his life as a world class athlete. What will you give to the world tomorrow? Fill your life with truth and love for God has created for what God has created out of his mind. That's all of us when God takes good people away from us. He's doing something for the human to ponder and I put in quotes your lives are not your lives. They belong to me and I call interview back and the twinking in the twinkling of an eye to where it all began. This has got talking and then I said so again. Love is the best protection against the fear of death for love. Cast it out all fear. Don't be afraid to love. Love show show unimaginable. Love to your spouse your children in everybody that you come into contact with for you do not know when you're rendezvous would death will occur but when it does you can take the sting of death like a soldier and the army army of the Lord and that's what it's all about.

Jury selection begins in Harvey Weinstein trial
"Jury selection and Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial is underway in New York City Deep with opening statements scheduled for next week the pressure is on to assemble a panel of twelve jurors and about half a dozen or so alternates. The process this has been far from simple the wraps media and politics reporter. Jay Clara Chan has been following the case from the courtroom in downtown Manhattan and she joins joins us now from a courtroom hallway. Welcome to the show anything sadly so a headline grabber. From the case as week was that the Supermodel gee-gee had deed was dismissed. Let's talk about the bigger issues. What do we know about the jury pool size and how the selection process is going? Sure so did actually had sort of a accused stage jury selection process for last week that was essentially what we're calling a pre screening. Prospective jurors given a questionnaire already fill out and then based on their responses on that train drivers psych decide. You know we want to strike this person or not And then starting to gate which was more more exciting About one forty perspective jurors came into the courtroom and so there was a live who questioning period between the attorneys and from on that right after this morning session that just wrapped up. It looks like by jurors have been selected already so one of the things that lawyers for Harvey Weinstein have been arguing. Is that people's history of sexual assault or knowing somebody who is a victim or survivor of sexual assault should disqualify qualify them from serving on the jury. How is that issue been debated in the courtroom one of the sort of bigger misperceptions even for high profile case? It's like this is even the idea of knowing about one or having heard of the accusations about him. That doesn't actually necessarily immediately disqualify someone for the attorneys. It's more picking apart. How does that information potentially impact would that information potentially impact then or give them a by sees When considering the evidence that will be presented before them and then obviously one actually or for that is if perspective juror has experienced sexual assault or I know someone who has experienced sexual assault? I mean that is something that could very much influence how they view a case and for the most part what. We've been seeing so hard hard for jurors who way that has been the case They've sort of stood up and said you know. I don't think I can be fair impartial. And sort of already indicated a kid that they they shouldn't be selected. So that's something we've been seeing there. As potential jurors are being interviewed as part of this process. How much is coming out about? How much they they know about Harvey Weinstein and what he has been accused of trying to varying degree but I think large number of prospective jurors who've come in and have indicated that they're familiar with either him mother person refer somewhat about his case? Obviously there is the greedy shins. And there's some in perspective jurors that say you know. I actually read William Fair books so I feel like I'm bit too familiar with this case therefore I can't be impartial fair And other people might be saying you know I. I've heard about him but I think I can put that aside. And just consider what's being presented as evidence etc testimony Cetera if I were to be selected for jury Ronan Farrow is the author of catch and kill any wrote about Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. It sounds like one juror already. Freddie has been held in potential contempt of court over tweeting about the case. What does the judge said about the way the jurors I guess lawyer should be behaving in terms of what they're saying outside of court? Yes that actually happened just this morning. They had called back in. A inspector would sending some tweets that he shouldn't have been And so he's going to have to come back in March after the trial should be all that got to essentially make his case why he shouldn't be held in contempt. I mean I I think even on the first day though when it comes to public comments about the trial or how people should be talking about it You know the judge told the defense you know don't Discouraging towards the witnesses. Don't talk about then if you're giving interviews You know to the jurors. Don't don't talk about the case if you're still perspective or don't talk about this case with family or friends don't text Oh tweet about it etcetera and then also for journalists we have to very careful about You know talking hallways and things. He's like that. We need to make sure that we do not in any way interact with jurors in a way that could put anything like that. We're talking with Jay. Claire Chan from the rap about jury selection in the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York. She's joining us from New York City courtroom hallway. Weinstein's defense team has requested a change in venue. which which I believe the judge has denied what is their argument in terms of why the jury pool in Manhattan may not be impartial to Harvey Weinstein? I think I think it goes back to again. The idea of you know this is a very high profile case And getting that one you know was a prominent person in New York. They're comparing to that. You know it's almost impossible to avoid news of Weinstein here in Manhattan And then also in recent motions they requested then you change multiple times but more recent motions. These awful pointed to a couple of protests that have happened on some of the days of the trial as more examples of you know clearly clearly. This is something that people are talking about. It's unavoidable etcetera things like that but you know the judge has denied their requests in his reasoning. Sort of been when you know because this is a national or international story. There is no place you could go where people would not be likely to have heard him. Sometimes in questions lawyers as potential jurors sometimes emotions they file with the court. You get a glimpse of potential prosecution and defense strategies. He's as any that. Come out so far through jury selection about how this case might be tried to the trial really hinges on the accounts of two women who've come report to accuse teen. Obviously the defense will be very focused on rigorous craft damnation to go cold in these women's stories or to somehow demonstrate teacher that the relationships were consensual or that the alleged victim you know maintaining relationships with Weinstein and the prosecution on the other hand will be demonstrating a pattern of behavior that once you may or may not have engaged in And really focusing on using the the two minutes testimonies along with his to bolster day cases essentially. We're talking to on Thursday Monday. As a holiday. A hundreds of potential jurors are being interviewed. Is it really likely there will be a jury impaneled by the end of next week and that we actually might hear opening statements by unexploited. Actually I do think so. I think we are actually Schedule I'm the December tourneys. We talked to them. I WANNA say yesterday or day before and they were also pretty confident that we would be schedule mean with he this morning session just wrapped up already. Fighters have been selected. So there's still a couple more days if you do this and I. I do think by next Wednesday over here. Opening statements. J. Clara San is a media and politics reporter for the rap.

"gee gee" Discussed on The Internet of Things (IoT) Show with Bruce Sinclai
"Oh that's nonsense but the five G. in most in let's say a Thomas vehicles that's that's kind of nonsense but in in some cases the fight is important and that is the intersection of divine diagram between a and Iot s the models and being able to take that data from a from Iot and feed it in. Let's say you know real time or runtime and incompletely or continuously update the models for. Hey I so that it can in turn make these rapid decisions and that that makes sense to me right. I mean that that kind of marriage make sense that it makes sense and and quite frankly even with vehicles and transportation. You can't get to where you want to get so if you just look at cars right right as part of a autos that are self driving or even a trip. We're trying to maximize the safety of of Of driving right the look at cars as a distributed network of IOT notes. Of what what you're GonNa be you know Co cars will be all I o t enabled and they will be constantly pinging one hundredths of a second right off of each other an off of satellites and off of distributed technologies at your talk now. Just take that bottle right a what we do today dry little right now. Now take that to seven point. Two billion people on the planet Lana Networking. Okay so now take a two objects that are both physical. When they're wearable objects that are going to be IOT enabled or they're literally things that can be wirelessly enabled a now? You're talking about you know what you think about the still. We're still walking Dazs bottles looking at x rays. And there's someone takes the extras walks down over here and then you know the things are not connected yet. That should be connected. Good but you know when you've got the ability to be able to have this kind of what I call hyper connectivity and it cuts across. It's not going to enable at being able to buy a virtual reality things even like the blockchain. It's it's I guess to answer your first question. I the future of it not which is shorter. It's GONNA be based on this convergence of other technologies that are gonNA be based on use cases and competitive advantage. And Gee Gee we can do this now. We couldn't do it before and I think that's the broader strategy of why IOT Is going to be a successful essel. Not just because you've got increased network robustness. Well let's talk about that a little bit more and if you can maybe go give us an give us a sense of where or what is am I good at today in. What's it going to be good at in the future? Kinda give us a spectrum. Yeah so what is good at. Today is one learning about them. Sorry good about learning so he can you know hey is right now. Whether it's you know deep learning machine learning machine intelligence brick good for a They're teachable. Today you can teach at a and I wanted me by. I is everything from you. Know Neural Nets that are used to move trillions of dollars in nanoseconds around the world and for financial for trading of stocks bonds instruments. Doing you know deep analysis to being able to run search engines to being able to you know a subdued decision support for doctors. You know everything from cognitive systems to sheen learning to very wrote things like chat bots lots of voice mail order very mundane things. We take somewhat grant right everything for the most complex which is diagnosis of genetics and disease Z's modalities too big opportunities. You know big opportunities and then smaller things that just surrounding US continually every day Such as how. Your cell phone works a lot of those enabled by by about so where we are. Today is learning about some stuff that stuff stuff may be bijal. It could be like a is tied to the The proliferation of cameras on the planet that are watching in identifying of either Problems or even crime or looking at guys or forged awards Protecting protecting systems so they can be trained to look at anomalies in other systems you know is that water container later got a cracker does it is my does mind. You know the sensor on your car that says hey you gotta go fill up the gas you know. That's Kinda fairly a dumb Ai. But it's you know it's it's emerging so learning stuff. Sensors answers only sensors only are really effective. If you've got some eight I wrapped around We we're headed towards an era. Where more robotics more self driving cars even satellites everything we have gets so it could get better at learn more and now now we've got a teaching other is about to optimize thing? So that's already happened. That's already started. We have is teaching other a is and we have so not good about learning teaching enabling us. Humans cooperating with humans typically add medicine which is very exciting right now so learning convincing collaborating around work particularly around vertical industries. Such as I've mentioned financial services mentioned medicine the very good. This is the early stages decision. I called decision lyrics. Were starting to get advice. Eventually there will be Again you wouldn't WANNA be operated on without a Davinci today. And what is is that right. Now it's Tele Robotic. I would forecast eventually. You'll have people say you know. I really liked to have that a operate on the you know her track records a lot it better than the other doctors. By the way I've got the analytics I pulled it off of your Robo. Dr Dot Com. So eventually we'll have so it's very good right now. For as I said. Decision analysis decision support learning capabilities monitoring and then tying nine those things to learn humans or alerting other systems when there is a danger right or there's a a a problem or there's an inefficiency efficiency right so that kind of awareness which is fairly utilitarian awareness right the next thing where we're going of course where we're going is is autonomous decision analytics where you know we get a in real time you know. We'll each have We'll each have our five six or more a is that will be part of our life is for work that will enable us will is in terms of advising us us in terms of of families and friends relationships help to eventually you get the point where is will be a semi autonomous which we we have today but eventually all times autonomous is going to be different autonomy. Say I will operate at a speed velocity acidy when I call cognitive lasting that is not greater than humans it's just could be applied fascinates and certain certain extent. We have that you know when you go on you go searching for things you're using an hour today In the past less than two years year a year and a half Google has made a dramatic embrace most of what runs a google search engine increasingly others and is is a form of they are that that was the position. You have to look at that as kind of you know the Canary in the mine. That's the beginning of early massification at adoption of AI. For all industries for all businesses and for government. Certainly so you words. It's going to head the future of. Ai is more autonomy better learning and I would forecast a better Help for humans and human problems so give you a perfect example. So I did. I did a talk for for the World Bank on the shooter of creating a digital supply chain which doesn't exist so we we is about a billion in change of folks on the planet today. That can't get the food. They need their either undernourished or they're in starvation just in general think about that. It's twenty detained and we can't get the food we make plenty of food and we make enough but we can't get it because the supply chain is not visible Ed an integrated and. There's no reason why we can't do that. It's a supply chain management issue or is it so I said so. I gave a presentation or analysis about that. And really what it is. We need to transform in crate. There is no digital supply-chain for agricultural food. HOW ABOUT THAT SO World Bank story concerned about that and I said what and what would really help is if we had a group of you know a is on the platform that were tied to in fields and in all different parts the supply chain from seed to product shelf? Right so that's just an example people just don't realize that we're living in a world where some of.
Victoria's Secret and the war for the fashion industry
"Catherine Sing is an assistant editor editor at Flare Katherine. Hi How are you. I'm doing really well. There's no Victoria's secret fashion show this year. Air is not for the first time in twenty three years. There's since nineteen ninety-five. There's no show for people who don't follow fashion or don't care what was the Victoria's a secret fashion show. And why was it so big. So the Victoria's secret. Fashion show was an annual fashion show. Put on by Victoria secret. which is a lingerie and lounge wear brands and lounge wear brand for years anyway for years? Yeah it really was and I think that's kind of what made the fashion show such a big thing every year so it was started out in nineteen ninety five and the first show was just in New York City and in the time since it's really gone on global so at two thousand seventeen. They did a show in Shanghai and it really became so it started out as a runway. Show that we're showing off you know bras underwear Rove's Rove's things like that. I'm really just took off. And it became kind of like an institution I think it was something that we're talking about earlier. You know how people even if you're not interested in fashion. You knew what Victoria's secret fashion show was. I know for models. It was a really big thing. They made a big deal l.. Every year to show the casting process and a lot of models who I think. Now people know by namely gee-gee Hadeed really got their start with Victoria secret fashion show so it was a really big thing for them and another thing is it's a big show for performers musicians. Yeah so you know like Taylor. Swift performed Riano performed a few years ago. And it's kind of seems to be this big deal or something that I don't WanNa say cements you in the music industry but it's kind of like a good sign if you're invited to perform the Victoria's secret fashion show and now that's all gone. Why did it go way if it was so successful in such an institution? Yeah Yeah So. That's the big question so according to the CFO so they made the announcement last week and he said really the reason they cancelled. It is because they're looking to you expand their branding and how they kind of communicate their brand to their consumers. That was the official statement. However I mean I'm not big into numbers but you know fortune and Forbes are and according to them Since two thousand sixteen the brand has really been declining in sales. Pretty look pretty steadily. So people aren't buying into Victoria secret or at least not buying their products as much as they used to. which that when you think about that makes sense than that? Maybe they would next something that costs so much money Like the fashion show. Will you work in the beauty and fashion industry. I mean flare is devoted to that area. what's happened to Victoria Secret Kind of in terms of their perception inside that industry over the last few years. Yeah I think like you said earlier they really we are or were. Maybe the laundry lounge wear brand for so so long but over the past few years it's really become a parent that you know. They started out. I think it was forty years ago and it really seems like as everyone. Maybe their consumers progressing in their values or you know what they want from their underwear. Brands of Victoria's secret is very firmly. Still where they were forty years ago. So we're is that describe. Yeah so I mean speaking to the if you want to talk about the fashion show specifically They've had a lot of criticism over the last few years About cultural troll appropriation on the runway. So a few years ago at the Victoria secret fashion show. They had an entire section because the show is kind of split up into sections so they have an entire a section where the models were wearing like indigenous headdresses. You know which a Lotta people do at music festivals as well which we also know is problematic so there is cultural appropriation going on again. There's not super inclusive sizing. So Victoria secret for so long has kind of been moving indicator they set the the bar for what at least they think of very narrow idea of beauty is And that's what you see on their runways and that's what you see in their campaigns and and you know they've been doing that for so long but in the interim other brands have come in that have models who are more the body size that you would see on normal woman or sorry. I don't WanNa say normal woman. Their choice secret models are normal women but it's just more inclusive you see all sorts of body sizes and all sorts of bodies in their campaigns pains and on their runways. So those were kind of two of the big things and then as well in twenty eighteen there Marketing brand officer for Victoria secret. Meet some pretty controversial comments about the brand and about who they choose to. You know be in their campaigns on their runway runway and specifically he made comments about you know plus size bodies and transgender people as well saying that in general audiences just aren't interested in seeing women who are over a size eight which like further record is like very normal body size like that is not plus sized by any means So they're not interested in seeing those women on a runway and also that they don't CASS transgender people because the show is supposed to be quote unquote like forty five minutes. A forty five minute fantasy which you know has like quite horrible implications in that so those are kind of some of the ideals that I think you know. Their brand officer said it pretty blatantly but I think consumers for a while before he even said that were kind of like getting the gist of what they're putting out. How is the industry? History is a whole changing. Then you mentioned other brands aren't doing things this way. And are they having success. How so yeah so? I think you can't talk about now. You can't talk. Victoria's secret it without talking about Riana And Riana for those aren't aware which everyone should be able to give us back story though just in case we are paying attention to re on his entry three into fashion. Yeah so Rana is started out as a musician. She's still very much a musician but very multifaceted so she has made her foray into fashion Few years ago she launched her own Laundry Lounge. Where brand called savage by fen T- And right off the bat. It was much much more size inclusive She had a range of bodies like on the runway in her campaigns both in size and color and her first fashion show. Does she had model Slick Woods who was pregnant like very heavily pregnant. She literally went into Labor after the fashion show so she was. But that's it's not something that you would see on a runway like let alone. A Victoria's secret runway so she's been just right off. The Bat has made sure that something that's happening for her brand and another brand. If you're talking about you know Victoria secret being around for a really long time another brand. That's been around for a few years as airy which is a With off Center it's included with American Eagle in. That's their lingerie brand or their underwear brand and they've done a small revamp themselves in their marketing marketing and their campaign so they started to include again more diverse bodies twenty eighteen campaign. They had women who were in wheelchairs. They had a woman who had a colostomy colostomy bag in the photos. And they've also done things like that. Go beyond you know just putting out images of women who are diverse or body positive out of images they've also In two thousand eighteen partnered with the National Eating Disorders Association. I'm in the United States specifically so and they had initiative going on where they were speaking with their employees in stores About how to create a body positive and non judgmental environment within the stores which is really cool and another thing they do is. They've promised to not photoshop. Their images anymore. See this is so fascinating to me and why I wanted to talk to you is because we talk all the time about various industries changing On the show but fashion seems to be changing so quickly and in such a a strange new direction that I'm not not saying it's bad. It seems really good but it also seems like it's been so dramatic. When did that start like what propelled WPRO this? Yeah I I don't know if we can pinpoint it one specific thing. I think that again Dan. The introduction of brands like savage by Fanti think were great and showing people what exactly was out there and and the fact that they you could see someone who looks like you
"gee gee" Discussed on Motive
"Exceptionally close to many people. We've always been close. I mean they've always looked at him like my a little brother. MALEFIC Donnie Ballard. As TJ's brother-in-law he was one of the closest people to TJ during this period when teacher was creating havoc with millions of dollars on the west side. Danni has some things to say. Somebody needs to speak up for him truth. And that's the only reason I'm going to sooner was because someone to speak up on Jay's behalf so here's Donna version of how. TJ got to the west side. Well Gee Gee was you know seeing this girl on the west side and this group of guys. Obviously they're seeing. TJ come through on a regular the basis and easy in a Lamborghini mercy lago or Lamborghini spider or badly. Ed Lee or a big hummer truck with sounds you. Obviously if you're from the West I you know it's poverty driven. They're going to can quick notice to something like that so they actually approached. Dj That's pretty similar to the version. We heard from our West siders like reese the traveling vice lords but Danny's emphasis is that this whole thing wasn't Tj idea. They came to him so hold on as long gang. Bang Bang Bang. Bang that you. Don't get down like we do and they pretty much told them. Look we're GONNA hours you whatever it takes whatever we gotta do is do. It didn't do anything for money. Basically this is the power of the word on the street and from the police was a TJ was directly paying people to flip here. I'm talking to the traveling Vice Lords again. Would you take hello. Loyalty will be two thousand dollars. They know damn money say and we get that fucking bitch is got. It's the biggest sin you could commit as a gang member flipping. I'm for money. That's what the police had. TJ was doing. That's what I wrote in my articles for the Chicago. sun-times Donnie says it's not true now. The main issue I really wanted to clear up for everybody just teaching never ever paid not not one person to flit one hundred per cent false. Paid One person to do anything Don't WANNA do Donnie. Says these guys decided to flip on their own just because he liked hanging around. Tj then they got showered with money and gifts. That's pretty subtle distinction from a direct payment. But if you believe what Donnie says it absolves TJ of committing one of the cardinal gang. Sins.

You can't get rid of them. They're they're legit so now. G g has legitimizing them but one thing i've been thinking a lot about is she's like a friend of reality t._v. and formerly on reality t._v. herself which i feel kind of overlooked but when you launder was on the real housewives gee-gee was all over it. That was not like random. Oh no no no. I mean like we got the iconic nick moment when g g had like a going away birthday party for college or something and you'll here's the piece of cake and it was literally the size of an almond yeah. Have you ever google you llandough and she was in her heyday as a model. Yes i have actually she was gorgeous.

He put up a lululemon add lululemon partner it would be wilder tyler became a runway model as a result of his new found fame. I don't wanna say as a result of g g. I think think like he could get there on his own shore but it's just wild. I is a i. I now find that like part of my daily. Routine is waking up and checking to see see if tyler is done anything no like what like what's going on today in thailand yes. Maybe it would have done that anyway but like it's just crazy. He's legitimate celebrity. It's wild well. I think he probably likes it. Also jay is nine one nine. Do you follow him on instagram.

grader reading a book report just really bad tries to tie back to is immigration yeah yeah yeah were it it and we're being political right about is what I think we mention this yesterday during the show the death toll has risen in el Paso to at least twenty two people I'm just the stories I can't it's just so heart breaking even only to in all their all out buying school supplies it's our last falling on their kids you know it was a purposeful back to school we have weak right because there was a sales tax holiday and Jack was designed to get people out to the stores have someone tweeted a

supremacists attacks will likely become bloodier as extremists with similar outlooks compete to have the biggest impact it's all based on conspiracy theories but what's similar about these things is now they're trying to outdo each other I think the death toll is going to get bigger and bigger the situation is only be exacerbated by trump he says are so what's happening is they're starting to put into action some of his policies that are getting pushed backs and more extreme manner it's like we can't even so just yesterday the R. by the way if you were a forgotten about the gill worry one like

She goes under and twenty four hours later. She's back in her hospital bed, seeing myself in the mirror in the in the hospital. The big one, what I could finally turn my body toward it. They were getting me up to walk around. And so I wasn't like confined to the bed all day. And I looked up and I saw myself and I saw my I was completely swollen, shut my right. My left. I, I could see my entire lip was completely swollen because one of the incisions went through my lip, the side of my nose was completely flared. It was red because they cut alongside of my nose. My job was it literally look worse than when I had the abscess in the tomb. Or in there before because it was so swollen from the trauma, and then my chest late where my train was, there was still a hole there. That's like, you know, when these tracheotomy I honestly didn't know what they meant. I was like, okay, whatever. Like whatever you gotta do this out of my face. I'm fine. But like I didn't know literally that win thing like I didn't connect for me and they always had to keep putting the the little toot back in my nose. You know my feeding tube because I couldn't eat for weeks either. So that was really traumatic to see like that actual hold there and it like seeing all that I kept thinking, how am I gonna look normal again? Because this looks like, you know, it was really tough to see that, but I. It it was awful. It was not a good feeling that all I did not feel beautiful at didn't feel good because it I, I was hurting. But then on top of that, I felt like I looked terrible and I remember crying and I couldn't catch my breath when I was crying because I had that trait. So it was like it was really awful. And I felt like that for a very long time. So here's the thing you're supposed to be happy to just have your health. You're supposed to be happy to be alive. You're supposed to be happy that someone was able to treat you and that it wasn't cancer and that you will live. You're not in a moment like this supposed to care about how you look. But why is that. For months GD stayed at her mother's house, trying to heal, trying to hide away from the world. What were your days like guys. It was like, I get up. I wouldn't therapy once a week, and then I had physical therapy once a week, and then I come home it literally all day. I would just sit in my bed maybe read beyond on the internet on tumbler or something. Destruct- myself. Watch TV all day. I would be shopping like all my mom was like, what are you?.

"Yeah. I had a blog for like a second and a half when I was in your, but six years ago, six years ago when my Instagram started, I actually had just moved here. Yes. And you were cooking with gee-gee Crocker, and I didn't know what g crackers were, and I just started following you because I thought one you had amazing apps like the best I've ever seen, and you also had all these really creative skinny tips. So I followed Ingrid for, I would say about, I want to say like three to four years. And then one day I was sitting in eating rock in, I don't even know what is the to Antibes and ice researches. Okay. There's this person I follow. Nobody behind this follow a lot of people. I follow my audience because I love to follow them, but I don't follow a lot of people that I don't know that are influencers, but there was something I really liked about you. I did that thing to me where she said, look that way, but don't look, don't look. And of course he turned fully turned around. So we see Ingrid across the restaurant. We're sitting there and I'm like, oh my God. This is this girl that I've been following for the last four years. I've never said high of never message her and I don't want. I don't want to go up to her and say hi, but I would like to know what she's eating Michael. So could you let me know and you were eating like a perfect salad and green beans and all this different stuff. Anyways, girls were so funny like that. I can never as a man. What's that? Manny? Lentil soup buddy. So one day I don't remember why. I think I messaged you. It was like literally five days later it was, and I said, I saw you. He said, hi, I've been full on you for a while, and I think I saw you, it's crazy. And you wrote something like, were you with your mom and your husband? And the first thing I said it was like, oh my God. Why didn't you come say? Hi, I just I didn't want to come say hi because I don't. Like I said, I don't follow a lot of people that I don't know on Instagram so closely, and I just love your skinny tips anyways. Fast forward here we are sitting at Ingrid's house. We've become friends, so she were a little stock and can get, you know what? I love a little stop looking at so many lunch the next day or in their home and eating lunch with them. They're drinking annual in fiber coffee. You never know. Wired up Instagram's a weird fucking play. So. I want to talk about wellness and diet in the French way of eating because that's why I originally followed you and your unapologetically yourself. So just maybe we talked a little bit in the beginning about how how the French differs from American eating. What are some tips and tricks that you notice that have made a huge difference in the way you look and feel? The biggest thing that change even for me because I worked in this space environment in New York. So I did what everybody else does. I ate at my desk. I ate at three pm if noon wasn't doing it for my boss for myself to biggest thing that has changed here is people take a lunch break from twelve to two PM. I know I talk about this all the time, but when you arrived from the states, it seems insane. You try to go to the pharmacy. You're knocking on the window and someone buses by goes, excuse me, lunchtime they closed and you're like, why. And that's happened to me for it, took me maybe like six months to a year to adjust to that. And then I realized that this is why the French are probably healthier and skinnier than Americans just out. So I did a little bit of research about that. And I started to realize that I'm obsessed with homes. Obviously, I'm a mom. I'm a mom since Jada with the age of twenty two. I'm forty years old. I've gone through pregnancies of gone through my divorce, which affects your hormones to stress level affects your.

Really can't thank you enough, and I feel it what we're doing here is actually such a big thing and I feel like we're doing it together. We're creating this community of people who are saying, yes. Yes, let's give each other permission to thing that we really want to do. And it would mean the world to me if you shared this podcast with a friend or even someone you just met, if you think you know anyone who this could inspire, please go ahead and share it because it does so much for show. It's such an incredible way to support our show. But I really do think that this is amazing work. We're all doing. I feel like the more we start to plant that seed inside our self and give ourselves permission to do really want. I think that it's not too much to ask that people wake up happy to do the thing they wanna do, and I really do feel it's the best way to serve the world. Like if every person on your block woke up and was doing their hand lettering business or their cupcake business or making t-shirts. And that's the thing that they really loved and they were skipping down the street because they were happy. They'd probably be more inclined to be kind other people. They'd probably judge people a little less harshly. Like I really feel we need to take control of our own happiness and it's it's enough. It's enough of saying, I don't deserve it or things don't really work out. It's enough like, why don't we just. Stop having these inner dialogues that don't really go anywhere and start to see what really is possible and help encourage each other that there is enough room for you. So please, if you love this show, share it with someone, we all deserve to have a beautiful life doing we love. And I just want to remind you that it's pretty simple. All right. This week I had the pleasure of chatting with delicious. Gee-gee Butler. She's the founder and creative of the popular Jiji's cupcakes, and I want to let you know right now we had a little bit of technical difficulty. So the audio might sound a little different. But like I say, we can't be perfect all the time, and I really wanted to make sure we shared her story because you guys will not believe what she's done. I don't want to give away too many details just yet, but basically she went from an aspiring musician who couldn't really get as far as she wanted to in the music business. She was then cleaning toilets. She was actually cleaning Taylor SWIFT's toilet. At one point. She was living in Nashville where she where she still lives, and then she actually opened a cupcake shop. And that was ten years ago. Now Jesus cupcakes has over a hundred local. Nations around the country. Can you believe that a hundred?

Twitch Plans to 'Aggressively Broaden' its Content and Expand Beyond Gaming as it Battles YouTube

For future growth Carol Massar night talked to Lucas Shaw about. Twitches grand ambitions look, tells about, Twitter of course owned by Amazon tesla bit about though how many people. Are using it so twitch is in the destination for people who like to watch other people, play video games which sounds like something really strange to a large segment. Of the population but there are fifteen million people who come to the site every day. To watch videos it ranges from literally people playing video watching people. Play video games also people talking, about video games but, in recent years the site has tried really broaden what it what it offers and the types of people that. Brings in there? Do they have they've made deals for Korean dramas We'll have live streaming of Julia child they have NFL games they have the. NBA minor leagues all part of this effort to make it out. Of the place for watching. Live video on the internet and suddenly Lucas, it starts to feel. A little bit more like YouTube and YouTube obviously, is the eight hundred pound gorilla in. This space but put them next to each other and help us understand how they. May interplay here sure so YouTube is the place for on. Demand video if you, want to, look up something whether it's a late late clip for a sports highlight. Or a music video you'll probably go and find on YouTube or YouTube really is just the, common language of video on the internet it's the video that gets embedded. Someplace but twitch has grown because of its emphasis on live and if you think about. It most of the are a lot of the TV that we've. Watched historically has been live and, that's really appealing to, advertisers and it's appealing to some viewers and so that's sort of the competitive advantage that which has no twitches. Significantly slower than? YouTube it's not as global as YouTube and the types of video that it has not as diverse but that's something they're trying to change and that Damer demographic. That twitch is so strong in is also very popular on YouTube some of the most popular YouTube stars over the years, Mark the player Pudi tie household names people between twelve and thirty four are gamers in. So. YouTube has started to get a little bit nervous. About this competition from twitch you've seen, them make deals to try to deter twitch let's remind everybody to YouTube of, course is owned by Google or alphabet tell me though about the personalities that twitches trying to attract why would. They want to go to twitch it's, a smaller audience versus staying on YouTube so twitch has. Gone after everybody from Hollywood through, posting lot on YouTube I've heard that they had wondered if somebody like Will Smith would wanna post on there to a more traditional YouTube style influenced serve. Whether it's the fine brothers who've writing produced a lot of shows for for YouTube or gee-gee. Gorgeous he's a famous lifestyle Silencer and they would go to twitch because, they can't rely on YouTube for all their money obviously Will Smith makes plenty of money doing various things but if you are. An influence for example you may have built your business, on, YouTube but YouTube is a somewhat. Unreliable partner and there's only. So much money you. Can make from a low low margin advertising there so you go to twitch because. You can sell subscriptions one of the most common ways. For people to make money, there is, getting somebody getting your fans to. Pay five dollars twenty five dollars a month to subscribe to, your channel and that subscription feature is not? Nearly as common on YouTube as it is. On twitch yeah and that's a really interesting point this idea that Amazon. And twitch have been much more comprehensive it feels like in terms of creating a business model with multiple revenue streams the other obvious, thing it feels like is it's part of Emma's on Amazon is all about commerce and so many. Of these online personalities Ultimately do and I'm going. To drop some knowledge here. They make their money on merch right You can tell the influence that twitches had on some of the changes that, YouTube has made so, all these tech companies you made the point YouTube is owned by. Alphabet which is on Amazon they're all fighting. For control of every single dollar that we spend and so they. Tend to copy one another if they see, a feature that somebody else has that they. Like so to your point about merchandise Twitch has made it pretty easy. Or at, least, has tried to make it easy that if you're watching somebody on twitch you can then go and buy something, from them or something that, they recommend, on Amazon YouTube has recently. Rolled out a couple of features. That look a lot, like something you would find on twitch both. This ability to subscribe to different channels but also the ability to buy merchandise? And post links from your video and so? Yeah you see these different companies in through video trying to just get you to spend as. Much money as possible whether it's advertising subscription merchandise so on and I'm curious, to Lucas's there's something. That twitches also offering I mean you you you write about IRL's. In real life videos is that something that. Twitches doing more readily more easily than YouTube is doing and that's. More attractive to to online personalities Well I. Look at an an video kind of like a YouTube blog they're both personal updates about whatever's happening in your, life and blogging is one of the most, popular formats on YouTube as well the difference again becomes live versus edited. So on, YouTube, people will spend a day up our editing and making sure that their log is perfect on twitch you don't, have that option Luca Shah, as always, great stuff thanks so
