Easter Bunny Stops Joe Biden From Talking With Press

"I have a question and I know that we've been having some fun with the clip about the Easter Bunny at the egg roll, right? Where the Easter Bunny intervenes with the reporters. But seriously, give me an idea of how that looks to reporters and what you think it says that you've got the Easter Bunny diving in to stop Joe Biden from talking to the press. Well, you know, there's something to be said for letting Biden be Biden. Biden won the primary if the presidential primary by being who he was boring full of making kinds of stumbles on the campaign trail. And yet because he was boring and because he seemed a little more normal than the other candidates he won. And you know, I feel like as he's gotten more handloaded as he's been president, has more progressive staff as more people that are working alongside him, they're making him look bad. He let him part of his image is the guy who has made his fair share of gaps over his long political career. Let him do that.

Ohio Senate Candidate Wants to Be Alternative to Career Politicians

"Mike, is part of this because voters in Ohio really looking for something fresh. I mean, huge just done a great job of running down a list of people who've been in politics for a while, right? I mean, Josh mandel JD Vance has been in the public eye for a long time. Is this because do you think that this is because people are looking for really just something fresh, something that breaks away from the politics as usual that has been going on? Well, you know, I don't know how they view me, but I've heard they think I'm I tell the truth and I'm authentic. I know that's how I succeeded in business. I thought it would carry over in politics, apparently it doesn't all the time. I'll go out and I'll talk about and I'll talk about career politicians and I'll say we can't entrust our nation's future to career politicians. And everybody applies. And Josh mandel has never outside each served honorably in the Marine Corps. But after that, he has never spent a day in his life in the private sector.

"Mike gibbons, it's you again. We're on right now in every major market in Ohio, from, of course, Cleveland and Columbus and Cincinnati, including Youngstown and Dayton and Toledo. And I even include Toledo in the Ohio market because even though they're in Michigan fans there, they're still part of the state. Where are you strongest in the state? Is it Cleveland? Is it northeastern Ohio? Just there's got to be a place where you're doing better than others. Well, the last poll we had, we are ahead in every major metropolitan area. And we're actually in the field right now. We should know something more later today. But to be honest, we were ahead in every major metropolitan area. But the race is tightened up. And we expect to tighten up. I have being attacked from every quarter and I first started this year, I said, you know, we seem to get a pretty good response when I'm out there talking to voters. How come we're not doing better in the polls? And they go, Mike, you don't want to be first to the polls. Well, now I understand why. That's interesting. Now, obviously, president Trump endured former president Trump endorsed events. You're running in that lane. That lane's awfully credit. I said, I have no idea how this can turn out. Sometimes the last man standing is the only woman in the race change him. Sometimes the last person standing is the only one who doesn't want the Trump endorsement that would be Matt Dolan. Sometimes the last guy standing is the guy who ran three times before you, that's Josh mandel. What is going on in Ohio? I mean, it's a wild carnival of a race. It really is. And we had a guy, as you mentioned, you've mentioned the names. Josh mandel had 92% name recognition in the state when we started. Mine was at two. You know, and we had to do what we did. We've gained main recognition of some pretty good degree. I was walking out of church on Sunday and some guy yelled to me as he was walking out and saying, hey, mister, I said, what he said, you know, you look like and I said, who? And he goes, Mike gibbons. Well, you know what? You know what gave me a clue. I'm crazy, Mike. It's when Bernie Marino dropped out. Bernie like you as a businessman. And when Bernie dropped out, I thought, that's because he can't make heads or tail of the data. And that's actually what I concluded that Bernie could not see a data pattern to win. Or he couldn't make out whether he would win. You know, it's funny you say that because the morning I saw, we get like a hundred pages of polling data. And when I looked at it the morning he dropped out, I said, Bernie is a smart guy. In Bernie has no path here. And it was pretty obvious to me. And sure enough, that very day dropped out. And I look for the same thing. If I didn't have a chance to win, I would have dropped out. And I've got a very good media group supporting me and they have shown me a path to victory that remains in place. And I've taken some hits, it's amazing what people can get away with saying that have bear absolutely no resemblance to the truth and I've been taking one of those every four minutes if you watch TV and here in Ohio, but we're fighting it the best we can. And we're retaining a strong position. So I'm pretty positive that the polls may show that we've moved up again and I'm very positive that we're going to win this race..

Today let us ask god for help in soaking in every truth as we pray his powerful words back to him let us ask for the freshness of his spirit to bring his message of love alive within our hearts and flowing through our lives. We can't do it on our own. We never be able to muster enough strength within us. It's only possible through him and more than ever before our world needs to see what true love looks like.

A Prayer for When it Feels Like Winter Will Never End

"Prayer for when it feels like winter will never end. Written by gregory calls and read by kelly. Gibbons there is a time for everything an a season for every activity under the heavens ecclesiastes three one dear god. Why is it so hard for me to believe that spring is coming. It's silly to doubt it. I know in all my years watching the season's pass. Spring has never once failed me. No matter how tardy it may seem the sun always comes home from a long vacation to melt. The forlorn snow the grass emerges a little brown at first inverted and full of life. The birds return making nests whistling solos into a warm blue sky. No matter how long it takes winter always to an end. But even though i know it's true even though i've witnessed it year after year i'm struggling to believe in spring right now. The world has been gray for so long that i barely remember what it looks like in color. My memories of brighter days have frozen over in the cold dangling like icicles just out of reach. Hope is hard to hold onto with frostbitten fingers. Why is it so hard for me to trust that. You'll keep your promises my wintertime. Despair is about far more than winter itself. It's the same doubt that overtakes me. Every season of difficulty every setback in sorrow. No matter how many times i've seen your faithfulness in the past each new dark day pushes me back to the edge of my seat. I hold my breath. Poised in suspense wondering. If grace could possibly come through this time my memory is so short today god. I'm not asking spring to come before. It's time i'm just asking that you teach me to cling to a hope that feels far away. Give me the grace of memory. Remind me of the countless ways. Both big and small that you've already proven yourself to me. Kim remind me that although hopeless times have come and gone like passing seasons they have never been the end of my story. Remind me of breakthrough and laughter and light. Remind me what springfields like. The cold has sunk so deep into my bones. Said it threatens to define me give me warmth enough to endure if me crackling fireplaces and hot apple cider and blankets shared with friends if me encouraging words and embraces just the right moment give me fresh reminders of your love and grace small mercies to sustain me until bigger mercy's arrive and then when the time comes please give me spring again give me a heart rejoices in the delights and sorrows of each passing year a heart grows warmer with every winter.

Are pro-Trump extremists messages more dangerous if theyre encrypted?

Are pro-Trump extremists messages more dangerous if theyre encrypted?

"Parlor is offline. Facebook and twitter are camping down on extremist speech on their platforms. So more people are migrating to absolute signal which encrypt messages between parties and telegram. Which can that blunts the power extremist messages but also makes it harder for law enforcement to see what they might be up to reigniting a year's long debate about encryption itself. Alexander gibbons is the president and ceo of the center for democracy and technology. I asked her about the trade offs. So in a way the relocation of these conversations to smaller private group settings is actually exactly what the major platforms were hoping for it removes the conversation from the public square where new people can be recruited radicalized of course on the other hand moving to smaller private settings makes it much harder for disinformation researchers and law enforcement to understand what's going on to respond to it and that's a really challenging part of the problem here and this has been a complaint of law enforcement for a long time right that these platforms reduce visibility. And of course the counterpoint is. Yes but they increase privacy. Yeah so it's a really active debate when we look at this. We really do see it. As a dangerous you know. Journalists human rights activists around the world members of congress doctors engaging in telemedicine they all rely on encryption to protect their communications. And it's a tool that's used around the world and really important ways and so one of the trade offs are the balancing that we have to think about is the impact potentially on law enforcement being able to go after the worst of the worst of these activities versus the huge benefits of that technology to so many other forms of expression and communication around the world. One could argue that we have just lived through an are still living through sort of a five year rolling experiment in disinformation and amplify and i wonder. Do we have a sense now of what happens. When for example these conversations have to go small and go private. is there an impact. When lies are amplified when conversations are these small private messaging apps. It does help in terms of reducing the reach for this type of content You know those those platforms are more private. They're quieter it doesn't participating kind of the general traffic in a way that lets people be recruited. So that's one point. The other is that there are ways that even with encrypted messaging that law enforcement and others including the platforms themselves can help respond to the worst abuses so first of all groups and users can still be reported if information is discovered. You know whether through an individual reporting or journalists or law enforcement or researchers go undercover in these groups platforms can respond and take them down for violating their terms of service. Right you still have to police work. Yeah right exactly so. The police work can get a has to continue and can continue. The second is that some tools. And what's up it's done. This recently can restrict things like message forwarding within these private apps to help reduce for -ality what stopped announced this thus fall is one of their efforts to respond to misinformation. They said that any message that had been forwarded five or more times now has a new limit so that could only be forwarded to a single person at a time as opposed to large groups so there's interventions that the platforms can do while still respecting the privacy and security of the messages to still make sure that the platforms are being used or mitigating. The potential worst abuses. Are you aware of any kind of ongoing efforts or existing legislation to try to require companies to provide access to encrypted messaging. Yes there is an increasing amount of pressure for example a bill that was introduced last year. That will likely be reintroduced in the new congress called the earn. It act which is trying to target child sexual abuse material online. Obviously just a horrendous problem. One of the challenges though is that that legislation in its original formulation tried to get it this by holding platforms potentially liable if they should have known about child sexual abuse material on their platforms and they didn't because they offer encrypted messaging that's really problematic because that's gonna disincentivize communications platforms from offering that type of secure and private messaging. So one of the things that we focused on is saying yes. Child sexual abuse material is a horrible problem. Let's focus on resources for law enforcement as opposed to having again these really tough tradeoffs that end up jeopardizing free speech in communication in such important ways.

"And so he's like. I can't let the pirates kill my family and so he creates raft but the wrath doesn't float very well and so in order for it to be buoyant he uses the rotting corpses of his comrades to make it float but science but probably feels like that wouldn't work. Yeah i feel like. I would way down like dead body raise. They don't have air in their lungs are very heavy. But i don't know at least initially may to let us know. Yeah so then he sales but he's just on this raft with like they'll and he doesn't have any food or water and he gets really delirious and then the bodies attract sharks and so then he has to like kill a shark with his bare hands and so this shark is attached to his raft. And he like make it home but he's like rabid and crazed and he thinks that the pirates have already killed everyone and so he's just going to go on a murderous rampage but then he ends up killing his wife and so he's so distraught and he goes back to the beach and he sees the pirate ship about to arrive was his wife the woman he killed yes on the beach with none of the woman on the beach he sneaks into his own home and kills his wife right because he thinks priorites have taken over his home and he kills his wife in her sleep. And so he's like so distraught he goes back to the beach and he gives himself to the pirates because he's like so morally corrupt and he's like. How did i do this after all my only mission was i was driven by love and i was trying to save people i love. How did i get here. And he just gives up and he becomes a pirate. That's the story so allegory. Caller is it an allegory. That's what i'm trying to figure out because vite isn't driven by love. He's driven by his own hubris. I don't feel like any of them are driven by love. Yeah like is it Like the world as a whole like and the futility of things and you just have to let it go or like is it.

"Standard like visual markers that show you like. Oh this person is talking off camera quote unquote and so they get a box you know and if it squiggly than it's like muffled coming from the radio or something and then like the little arrow points to who's saying it and then and then you have certain boxes which are like Narration if you have a voiceover so the roar shocks journal which you get parts of. I'd like yeah. And then dr manhattan's dialogue is all in blue. So he's so flu that his dialogue bubbles are also blue. I mean it kind of helps. Sometimes i know who that is so it's a lot That's why i all. I can do is compare it to a film because i feel like that's what they're trying to mimic But when you don't have southbound you can't like make one of them louder than the other rate because it's just all on the page and it's all crammed into this tiny little space so yeah it very overwhelming at times and like I think gave me a similar feeling to reading classic novels. Which makes it so fascinating that he was trying to create like a moby dick. Because i'm like yeah. I mean the experience of reading certain classic novels where you're not used to like the language and the scope can feel very overwhelming the comic within the comic. I i wanna say. I appreciate it because i understand the art which is what i said at the beginning of this episode but part of me just hated it every time it came out half to read it. Is this depressing tale of this guy that ends up like on a deserted island. But then there's these are the bodies there. I didn't quite catch how that happened. He makes a raft out of human remains to be his at home. I don't do it help. So part of part of the story is explained in one of the inserts. 'cause they have like an article about the author so i got. I understand you remember that. Yeah again. I also didn't like those things i didn't like i didn't read them closely in that so i don't think know but i. I will try to keep his brief. Because i could talk about the comic within a comic book for like conservatively like five hours. I just drove me crazy trying to figure out what the hell it was. Four and i can't figure it out so yeah so the plot is that this do like a merchant from this place like kind of like a jonestown kinda thing and his ship is attacked by pirates and everyone is kill every one of his people is killed except for himself. He manages to survive but he's like thrown into the sea and he ends up washed up on this beach and he sees the pirate ship sailing away towards his hometown.

"Because i knew the plot i could kind of take my time than new. As more of an exploration into the world building I yeah. I was trying really. It makes a lot of sense that they were originally trying to fill space. Because i could not wrap my head around like what exactly they were four because they don't influence the plot really they're not essential but they do at the same time. Give you a lot of interesting insight into how these characters think because you can kind of sit in one person's voice for a long time Or see kind of more of their story and and like even the owl will journal article that he wrote told me a lot about him as a person So if you're more into like character studies maybe that's more of your thing You only learn that dr Captain metropolis and hood injustice are like a couple in those documents. I think it. It alludes to the fact that hooded justice his gay in the first chapter something. But i don't think it ever says it explicitly except in those like inter mediary documents. Maybe that was missed. Yeah so when you get to the show. There's this assumption that everybody knows their a thing. Ray and but it's a barely mentioned. There's like it's between. It was in like a letter to sally. Jupiter from someone but it was really intriguing world building sense but every single time it got to the end i was like that did nothing to the forward momentum like you were saying it didn't encourage me to keep reading at all. It was just like a. Here's a collection of documents about an alternative reality. Have fun kind of what it felt like. Your book was but yeah i saw another reason. You can't read it very fast is it's like i mean we've said but it is dense it is so dense and it has so many things happening at the same time and like like i said earlier like visually. It feels like it's trying to be a movie but without sound so we it has to tell you and maybe this is just how every comic book is in in certain moments. There's like four.

"Something like csi right where there's like fifty million episodes and it's kind of serialized and not considered highest quality television versus like a bbc miniseries with four episodes that tells one compla- already beginning to end and those are considered like higher class. You know and a watchman. It's like an eight part. Hbo mini series and that has a certain prestige that kind of self contained. Let's kind of the sense that i'm getting like oh we can fit all of the story in one buck. Oh okay and it's like moby dick comics like ooh okay. You know rather than like you need an entire bookshelves to fit this whole story because that's harder to sell the book readers and this ended up this kind of shift from these ongoing serialized comic books into a graphic novel that continues to be in print and continues to have a world in the dc universe. became a big controversy for allen. More so his contract had been dave. Gibbons air contract was basically. Like i'm going to butcher this a little bit. So go go. Read articles will link. It are shown outs for all the details. But the victoria take their contract was As as long as it's being printed dc owns This is the percentage you get and then a year once we're done with these characters a year later they're yours and online david zoe. Cool that works. 'cause that's how these comic books go you. You print them. They have the run. And that's it. And then there was a shift in the media at or in in this particular medium that they will than they did about like a hard bound issue release of all twelve and then they reprinted and then they reprinted and so they do still own the rates even know initially they kind of understanding of the comic book world at the time. Was alan more date. Givens would eventually owned rights themselves and so this along with some other Frustrations lead alamo to cut ties completely. Dc and he won't engage with any of the watchman staff like. He doesn't support the hbo show. He wasn't a part of it at all. Were the movie that came out in two thousand seven or something like that and it's kind of like distance himself and so it's a really interesting. We could go down a home rabbit hole of like. Where does the creator's wishes beginning end with something like 'cause then you've also got characters like spiderman and batman who just continue to live on these different iterations but if the original creator doesn't want more iterations of his world should respect that..

"Dc movies where it's like. Oh it's this universe of spiderman who's five different iterations of spiderman. Here's all these characters that ended up connecting they do different ventures together and sometimes they have solo adventures and. Then there's the watchmen were. They were like totally on their own. And maybe there's been some crossovers and other places but like that's not picked up the watchman away. I don't know any of these characters. This is different. There's a lot out there about like the history of those in like. I'm sure for people who are super into comic books of not gonna hit on all the pivotal moments. But this to me and what i found. Interesting this victorious. Take on the history of the watchman So one of my favorite quotes was that alan. Moore's that his intention was to create quote a superhero moby. Dick something that had the sort of weight that sort of density in god gouge my eyes out. Okay that's when i decided. This book was probably a little too long. Because he's going for moby dick but also like that explains so much about the like chapter. Long expostulated wins on the meaning of existence. And whatever right. I'm like okay. So that's who do. That's who were dealing with okay. I understand that makes a lot of sense. Yes so he starts. He pitched the idea and then he re writing these original characters. He's working with dave gibbons to do the illustrations and given says that at least the first The first book in the series that got more gave him like a hundred and one pages of single line text describing things and the text of the story and then go for it he was like i had a number all the pages because if i dropped one it would take me two days which order they went in again. My i can't imagine. And when they first. So when dc. I scheduled out when these are going to be released They only had the first three written and so they actually supposed to be done like an a much shorter timeframe lake published. But they like.

The earliest human footprints in Arabia

"Now, we have contributing correspondent and gibbons. She wrote this week about the likely earliest human footprints on the Arabian Peninsula high an hi Sarah how old or how early are these footprints but that's a good question. They threw a whole package of dating methods at them and came up with in the Ballpark of twenty, one, thousand, two, hundred, and ten, thousand years old. Now the dates are not absolute. There's some questions about them, but that's a pretty good ballpark. How does this age compare to previous hints or clues that humans modern humans early modern humans were on the Arabian Peninsula. Here's the. We know that early hominids members of human family have been migrating out of Africa for two million years because we find fossils of our ancestors in the public of Georgia we find them in. Asia. We find them in Eurasia place, but we don't know how they got out and the most logical route is they had to walk through Rabia because they couldn't fly. They couldn't paddleboats a at that point the one landmass in the way between Africa where humans arose originally, our ancestors arose and Eurasia is through Arabia. So we know they had to go through there, but there's a huge gap there are. No tools older than three hundred to five, hundred, thousand years, and what is there is not definitive. The only fossil have a member of the human family from Arabia is a finger bone that is about eighty eight, thousand years old. So the mystery is, where's the evidence of members of the human family marching through Arabia, and then the second part of that is modern humans specifically, our ancestors Homo sapiens arose probably in Africa, because we see fossils in the ballpark of one, hundred, eight, thousand, three, hundred, thousand years of Proto early Homo, sapiens arising and Africa, and then we find more of these sort. Of Early Homo Sapiens in Greece dating possibly back to as early as two hundred and ten thousand. So we know that they got out right now we're just trying to find evidence. Is there something that going on in the Arabian Peninsula that either people didn't want to hang out there for very long or that erased a lot of evidence. Reagan. Peninsula, has covered with desert's it's very dry today the food desert where they found these fossils is parched arid but there were periods in the past where the planet was cooler and wetter, and during those times hundred, twenty, five, thousand years ago it was. One of them, it was green radio was covered with tens of thousands of lakes. They were grasslands between them. If you think about these early human ancestors, it's not a separate continent or a separate place for them to go to its Afro Arabia, right? Yeah. So it's an extension of Africa if the client is good and they're following large game, how were they able to find these footprints? This is a very large area and it's a few remnants of human passing through. Yes. So this team will have by Michael, Leah and it's an international team of Saudi Arabians in a number of people on. Has Been doing a search of scouring the deserts of. Arabia. For the last decade, they start with satellite imagery which helps them see parched ancient lake beds which have sort of characteristic white halio souls often these ancient sediments that stand out in the satellites and then go down to ground truth what they see on the satellites, an airplane shots they go in on foot in jeeps, and in this case they saw this ancient. Lake better rolling out as white sediment. It had just been recently exposed by Rosen and they found the footprints of the animals which was amazing and as I looked closer to one hundreds of footprints, it was four hundred mostly animals but they did identify a small number. It was seven that seemed to be human footprints. So they knew right away they were very excited about that that this was something that was important how Can you tell that they're human footprints and not some other upright walking relative? There's not a whole science of studying human footprints ever since the first ones are found in la totally in Tanzania and Kenya there've been a number of footprints that have been studied people use three D morphometric dimensional analysis with computational imaging or can really look at the depth and they could model how much weight would have been needed to make. That footprint, the length of the foot, the stride between the steps, and then they've done studies living people in their footprints in Africa to sort of test out those ideas and Lo, and behold when they do that to these footprints, they seem to come up with somebody kind of humor that was taller and maybe a little lighter weight more like a modern human of Homo sapiens and say an Andrew Tall so based on that. They say, Oh, these probably were made by Homo sapiens although we cannot rule out that nanotubes might have been there to is there anything else can tell about these people by looking at these marks I think if they get more, they can start to tell about their social structure footprint studies in Africa. I've got quite complicated where you could see the direction that they're going in the payson different members of social groups you can. To see what they are the packs of humans look like you know, what size are they how many are in these groups? What are they doing a lot of the way in this case, they're not spending a lotta time. They're just sort of walking through. This is a bantering group. What is really really cool. Though is that footprint site these are a snapshot of a single moment in time a single day most of the. Time when you have an archaeological site in a layer soil that you get the fossils of the tools and the dates, all that took place. This fan is usually hundreds of thousands, tens of thousands of years. So if you find an animal bone near a prominent human early Human Boehner tool, you don't necessarily know fear there at the same time as parch with footprints like these these were lay down in the same day maybe. A couple of days and they dried out and then got caught up in preserved. So we know they were all there at the same time. So you get this really cool day in the life look at the and of the animals they were with, which is really cool in this case and lots of animals. Yes. Almost four hundred footprints of animals including very interesting. A wild asses which I don't think we're carrying burdens but. That's kind of neat and they were elephants and the thing that's interesting about the elephants as their popular disappeared for the Middle East, just in Africa. Thanks for three hundred years ago and here they are in hundred twenty, thousand in Arabia and the camps they also Campbell's it's kind of interesting that such large animals with Aaron. It begs the question were these humans following them where they attracted them. Going back to the, we talked about it being about one, hundred, twenty, thousand years old. There's some question about the date but if that were cracked, is there anything particularly Gordon about this time human history about what we know about migrations that we could link these prince two? Yes. So what is really interesting is that genetic evidence says that everybody outside of Africa. Came from migrations that happened in the last fifty to eighty thousand years. So this state predates that we happen to know that early Homo Sapiens were in the Middle East pretty quickly after this or at the same time they're fossils in caves. At school and cough so that our early sort of product Homo sapiens. So we know humans are at sorta suggests that because we don't have DNA that dates back this early these were failed migrations. These were members of the human family that went out they weren't shelled migrations for them they lived, but they did not contribute to the gene pool of letting people today that's one hypothesis but it also shows that there's more complex story of groups of humans migrating out of Africa constantly whenever the weather excitement is right that it's three to nothing that they can get water follow animals to meet and trek. Africa. They can cross the desert. It looks like humans were doing that whenever they could and so how do they contribute tour ancestry today a really interesting question and how many different kinds of hominids out there. Thank you so much an thank you. Sir,

If you pulled five people aside at your company and ask them what you do and why you. Would you get five different answers? This. Is the kind of challenge branding solve. But the truth is at a lot of what passes for branding materials and consultation are thickening agents meant to make businesses feel they've paid for something substantial complex defying an order to profit Tim Ferriss has called it. But branding is in fact, very simple. You don't need pages of charts and graphs to define it just a few words or a sentence. Branding. Is what you stand for and what people experience from your products and services. It's not what you claim to be. It's what you are. Your brand is your purpose advertising takes that purpose and assembles it into compelling story. That's twenty five years of frontline branding and advertising experience packed into a few words. But why is authenticity important to branding? Because the temptation to tweet or share things on social media in order to be accepted has never been greater. In a sense, we're all performing for each other like never before. Judging by our music or movies social media, not to mention her branding and advertising being true to ourselves. As novel we're after we want to seem to be true to ourselves want the appearance of authenticity. Than the fact. The wise words of Simon Sinek provide good corrective branding is an exercise and trust building. He says when we fake our way to trust that trust will eventually collapse. One level of brand authenticity relates facts. Is that cookie made with natural ingredients is that watch rolex a knockoff? Now this kind of authenticity isn't unimportant. But it's only a starting point. It's like telling people your height or your eye color. These details don't penetrate to who you are were to who your brand really is. It's easy for companies to get hung up and telling the history of their founding. In exacting detail they feel they have to recite information about their origins founded in this year by these two people humble beginnings in a garage or basement. I'm not saying these things should be hidden, but they frequently don't matter. When you think of authenticity branding, think of it, this way brand authenticity is believing in and delivering on what you claim about yourself and your products and services. It's your brand's essence not it's facts or its features. And this gets us to the first thing that all authentic brands do they're built on a clear purpose. In the movie office space and Unhappy Employees named Peter Gibbons, guts, sufficient his cubicle and fights the desire to throttle the CO worker who tells him must be having a case of the Mondays. It's funny because many of us have had jobs like peters bad jobs jobs that seem to have no function other than to make us move paper around in dream of the day will quit. Meaninglessness is deadly for brands because humans are wired for purpose, employees leave jobs when they don't find sufficient meaning pay and benefits are rarely the cause. You can't capture your purpose with long mission statement and pages of brand strategy employees and customers need something clear simple and true. They can go back to again and again. My partners and I call it the hill you defend it's the first and the final ground on which you stake the life your business. Their other popular ways to describe the same basic idea. Jim Collins argues that all successful companies adhere to a hedgehog concept. They succeed by finding and focusing on one thing that they do really well. Simon Sinek talks about the golden circle and starting with why The center of the Golden Circle is a brands reason for being it's why. Don't be afraid to embrace a seemingly humble purpose that you can actually live out rather than a high falutin purpose that has little relation to the products or services you provide. One Young Entrepreneur I met was launching a firm dedicated to sustainable architecture, her passion and her intelligence. Clear. Although. Her purpose was staring right in the face building better buildings that is buildings that are more affordable and more beautiful and friendlier to the environment. She was clinging to a phrase that she had fallen in love with. We're going to change the vernacular architecture. She told me do you know what that means? Neither do I. Should be more likely to find her company's authentic purpose by thinking of it this way. Could someone call her office and say? Hello I'd like to buy a change in architectural vernacular please. nope. But they could call and say I like to commission a building that's better and more efficiently designed. A strong purpose answers a lot of questions and even help inform business decisions. Why should we design packages this way? Why are we expanding into these markets or reaching out to these customers? Why are we aging our cheese like this? Or for employees, why do they perform their work this way or not another way? Because that's what a company dedicated to. This purpose would do. Think of Fedex with their purpose of guaranteed on time delivery. United. Airlines being the friendlier line. Now they've lost their way it seems in recent years but that purpose at one time catapulted them to being the number one carrier in the world. The second thing that all authentic brands do is they seek conflict. As. Social creatures most of us try to avoid or minimise conflict that's perfectly rational but conflict is at the heart of good stories and it's also at the heart of effective branding and advertising. Most products and companies are created out of conflict. To take a prosaic example, a busy parent is confronted by an unhappy teenager whose favourite redshirt is fading in the wash. It's a problem that needs to be solved. Tied Color Guard offers a solution, a detergent that doesn't fade reds and other bright colors even after multiple loads of laundry. The importance of conflict and branding and advertising is often overlooked. Ultimately, address in resolving conflict is why people will pay for your products or services. Conflict interestingly can help you locate and focus your brand purpose if you're struggling to pinpoint. If you're not sure how to express your brands purpose think of the conflict or the problem solve for customers. Finally the third thing that authentic brands do is they cause with caution. Not long ago people greeted with this news KFC announces buckets for. The Cure. You don't really need to learn more details to sense the approaching doom. Kentucky Fried Chicken Partner with Susan G Komen to donate fifty cents to cancer research for every bucket of chicken ordered. Funding, breast cancer research is, of course a noble cause. KFC simply wasn't the brand to do it at least not in this way. Maybe they could have donated money directly without making it depends on the consumption of fried chicken. The campaign was met with House of disapproval and was quickly withdrawn. The public is onto brands looking for cheap grace. Your customers. Dishonesty sensors are set to high. They're quick to see self interest masquerading as selflessness, and they're ready to pounce on publicize instances of inauthentic.

Guards who were instructed to turn a blind eye to all theft and accept any and all bribes so that the public would steal the potatoes and grow them on their own land. After a time Parmentier dismissed the. And as he expected, the locals raided the land and stole almost every potato plant growing there. By the following year, nearly every farmer in the region was growing their own potatoes. The potatoes, geographical and botanical cousin. The tomato fared better initially.

There was not a sound as he dramatically brought the tomato to his lips and took a bite. A woman in the crowd screamed and fainted, but no one paid her any attention. They were all watching Johnson as he took one bite. After another, he raised both arms. The crowd cheered, and the firemen's band blared song. He's done it. They shouted. He's alive. We, know the tomatoes and potatoes come from central and South America but lots of foods don't come from where we've been led to believe. Let's go to a lightning round real quick.
