Celebrating Asian-Pacific Heritage Month
"Gonna talk about Some attitudes towards the api community and some data and also share a few stories and backgrounds along the way and for that we are joined by our special guests one of the co founders of launch dot. Org norman chan and eric toda global head of social marketing at facebook. Welcome to the show gentlemen. Thanks for a ravenous later to be here. Yeah so good time you booth and i feel like part of me wants to say happy. Asian pacific american heritage month. But it's been such a time of reckoning for our community and for our allies. And i don't know the data that we'll talk about is really staggering. And i think stuff that we all know or our friends or our leaders have experienced So it's a really kind of psalm. Bring time as well. Do you all feel kind of mixed right now algebra here i think that First off thanks for having us on the show. And i think one of the things you missed is a actually board member of launched to. So i'm one of norman's followers you don't i look at. I look at what. Asian pacific heritage months is meant to do. It's meant to recognize our history. Recognize and celebrate our journey in this country collectively and not just east asian or south asian or south east asian. And so i do think this month has meant a lot more to the community more so in previous years because we are in the midst of a larger cultural awakening for our community where it's an empowerment month. It's a it's not just a celebration month or remembers. It's an empowerment months and i think a lot of things are coming to life. That are outcomes of one. The the the response to the hate in the violence against our community and the outcome and byproduct of that are very positive things.

Cms charles welcome to insure blocks. Could you please give listeners it. Quick introduction on yourself facts related. I'm happy to be here. So i'm a lawyer at an international law firm and i spent my days wrestling with the challenge of war. New technologies. main for the industry's outlines. What and what. I talk about our clients. That's very broad range from financial institutions that have been around for hundreds of years. Three fintechs crypt type firms blockchain protocols looking around full hundreds of days since sometimes less than that so this is interesting because whilst you know whether they're a established company for hundreds of years or affectively a startup do all how some of the common challenges but i piece from podcast. I'm sure they also have different cultural challenges when it comes with technology. Is that something that sits within the remnant of of your of your job in terms of addressing. Yeah and we see in lots of different ways and the most obvious is probably the way that firms engaged with us and so at often with we're talking about a regulated industries here the financial market security insurance finance banking generally these regulated products that regulated firms and so they've got relationships regulators. They've got magazine issues. In some cases leading with a that's not the case with a lot of the new businesses
Could We See a New Cold War With China
"It is perhaps difficult to altogether. Suppress an amount of derisive mirth. When the people's republic of china inveighs against the unfairness of a world subject to the whims of omnipotent higgins president xi jinping earlier made a series of statements to this effect also making some pointed remarks about the united states using its mighty commercial power to advance its political interests as such treachery obviously has never even occurred to beijing. G speech wasn't obvious enough. Challenge to the newish administration of president joe biden but what are biden's options for response joined with more on this by isabel hilton. Ceo of china dialogue is a bill. How reassured should we be at this point. The china does not it turns out which to become any kind of global amman. Heavens did really terrible source. china Which is to mark the end of the us reign as the global head. Jamin but isn't quite ready to step up so if you look at cheese speech what he what he made fairly clear was that because of geography china was an important regional power and that was a bit of a shot across the bows of japan and perhaps the philippines who've been making unfriendly noises and japan and the united states said had already just this week Agreed that they would work to counter some of china's behavior in the region but the idea that china is ready to take on the kind of global leadership in the way. The united states is exercised. It is is a little premature. I think so it. This is an exercise in containment. Cise in trying to discredit us. Leadership and to discredit the sort of values norms of a global order which china repeatedly claims were set up by just a few powers and china wasn't one of them at the time
Khartoon Weiss Wants Brands to Stop Overthinking Platform Strategies
"Welcome to the podcast. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me too good to be with you absolutely so tiktok really big year for tiktok last year and there was a lot of lot of ups but also like some periods of who's gonna end up owning tiktok by the end of the year. How is tiktok advertising business. So you're the head global head of agency and accounts so you deal with agencies. You deal with. Advertisers house tick talks relationships with advertisers. Changed over the past year. It's a great question. it's actually exploded. for sure has exploded. We were we were test partner. I would say in twenty twenty and twenty twenty. One is the year that we wanna be trusted of the advertisers. Were really curious about tiktok. Rake the the whole world got locked inside a home and was was desperate for engagement. Desperate for sharing desperate for connection and tiktok really provided a bridge to all of those things. So advertisers really curious to what the ground swell was what was happening and that's their job. Their job is to connect with human beings to find need states and then to really build relationships between their brands and those need states and tiktok was right there and people loved it and so curiosity drove the initial round of engagement. The initial round of testing. And next thing you knew advertisers started to see how much momentum the platform drove for their brands for their connections and started to shape a different marketing language. So it it moved from curiosity and innovation into starting to trust the platform to move product into move people and that is the ultimate goal of marketing is to change behavior and get people to actually do something

How to Leverage Amazon to Grow Your Business in 2021
"During the pandemic the use of amazon sword but so has small business owners selling their products on amazon. Here talk about how they can help. Your small business is carry kucic. Who is the of small business empowerment amazon. The small business powered team is focused on driving. The success of amazon's small business partners and works with teams across amazon deliver programs. Investments that support their growth carries a graduate of the university of florida's levin college of law where she earned a juris doctorate degree shows holds in history of english from covenant. College carry welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me very so i could ask you. How did you end up being a lawyer from studying history and english extensive amounts of reading and writing. The really is i. You know when. I was In actually in high school had an opportunity to participate in a youth leadership program That included a track on the judicial system. And i just kinda got hooked on on everything that was involved in of course. Reading and writing is a big part to sorta leaned into those superpowers. I guess so. How did you pass from being a j. d. lead you to amazon and out small business owners. The phone question I do. I've today describe myself as a recovering lawyer. A my favorite time. Yes you know the thing that was fun for me about practicing law was you. You get to spend all day identifying issues in solving problems and so i really From day one enjoyed solving ambiguous problems. Where you had to figure out the root cause of whatever issue or opportunity was in front of you and then inventor way to the solution and so that took me from practicing law Up through a variety of roles on the business side where i've gotten to solve increasingly problems. focused on solving challenges For usually for others which leads to my my role today which is very good to spend all day everyday focused on helping solve issues challenges and make the world a better place for small businesses. I think a lot of people carry don't realize how many small businesses actually work through the amazon channel. Tell us about that So amazon in the us alone on amazon works with more than two million independent partners. They come in all shapes and sizes celena stores. They operate delivery service businesses. They use tools trim. Aws a build alexa skills. They published books with kindle direct publishing so amazon supporting small medium. Sized businesses is a fundamental part of our work there. It's a core part of what we do everyday. An extension of our customer centric culture. Our success depends on their success and our global head. Carrie i was gonna say in our in our store worldwide. We have over a million independent businesses selling in the account for over half of all products sold. And we've seen their sales continue to outpace our retail so we know that customers value them in this election they bring in an incredible way. The amazing statistic that over half of everything purchased on amazon is sold through independent third parties. Small medium sized businesses. That it's not really amazon. Really is the amazon marketplace right absolutely. Yeah the outlive sewing partners. The independent businesses bring those products role and bringing such a wonderful and diverse array of products across all categories. That customers enjoy now. Even i know most of us were surprised by covid. Nineteen who would know that once in every one hundred years right what happen last year but was my biggest surprise is that when ordered some from amazon. It couldn't get here in two days. I thought would never ever happen. Carry tell us about the challenges. They're really amazon. Face in the small business partners did during the height of the covid nineteen crisis absolutely right kobe. Nineteen created many challenges for small businesses. We you know despite it. We were encouraged to see that sense and through that time. Small companies have continued to grow with amazon. You know twenty twenty the number of us long medium sized businesses that surpassed one million dollars sales grew by more than twenty percents and more than thirty seven hundred surpassed him in sales for the first time. Which is just a really great business milestone for any prisoners owner. I'm those businesses have created an estimated one point one million jobs which is phenomenal. It's such an important part. Is you know what keeps our communities going and so we've seen as customers of increasingly shopping online on the past year. The businesses were using e commerce. House channel have continued to sustain grow. I'm in our commitment to supporting them. And adopting for the future has has never been more steadfast done a number of things both continuing work. We've been doing for years and new things. We did in twenty twenty to continue supporting them through that journey. And i think that's really the key role. The amazon plays a lot of companies have got into e commerce for the first time during covid nineteen and like all right. I'm gonna go set up a store. But they no incomes and i think that is really the key of getting involved in the amazon marketplace. Because you already have so many people looking for products right there absolutely One of my favorite stories. I think one of my favorite projects from twenty twenty was last year redesigned prime date support small businesses and we committed more than one hundred million dollars to help their growth over the shopping event through the holiday season and that included holding our biggest small business promotion. Yeah so during that promotion customers. Purchase dollars and products from participating. Small business selling on amazon. Ten dollars credit to spend on prime day. It's on a two week. Lead up to prime day. Small businesses included in that promotion generated more than nine hundred million dollars. In sales on prime day independent third party sellers had their two biggest as ever surpassing three and a half billion in sales which is nearly sixty percent year over year increase and even more growth than our retail business and then it also came with stories like the story of lia foods actually a seller based north aurora forty minutes outside of chicago and she makes african inspired spices but The fun part about her story. It demonstrates the power of selling on amazon and an event like prime day to find those new customers over to help those new customers find you. She shared that coming out of advent not only has she almost doubled her single day sales but her daily started trending upwards with all that new customer acquisition those stories. We really enjoy seeing so those who've never really men sold their price to amazon. What kind of rain moments are there. And what is it in a cost to market on amazon. Yes so our public schedule. So if you if any seller or someone considering becoming a feller looks online at those public public information fees range from eight to fifteen percent depending on product type and for business selling amazon. Really do that as a marketing cost because of the access to that three hundred million customers that it creates and then beyond the monthly in referral fees. everything's optional so sellers choose. What's right for their business. We offer as i mentioned a variety of services in programs than in its pick. What's right for you right so if you want to lean into advertising their options for you could choose what suits for your business if you want to move away from fulfilling your on products create more bandwidth for yourself to do other things there options to leverage by amazon into leverage the customer service support that comes without. So it's it's very much a choose your own adventure but each business owner can select the right fit for them and what fits their
TPA Open Source Software Security with Jennifer Fernick
"Let's do a little background on you. Give us the thirty second overview of who you are and in what brings you here. Share name's stanford for nick. I'm the global head of research at nc secret which is a large cyber security consulting firm prior to this iran a security team at a large bank. I've been doing security for a very long time long before. I realized that it was an actual industry in profession and grew up through Do undergrad and my masters was in systems engineering. And then he's a phd student in cryptography. So my main focus area has historically been progress. But of course it's expanded to much more recently Currently i run a security team that has several hundred researchers at antique group. So you are in fact. One of those jokingly jobs and i always talk about in crypto. There's like five people the world qualified to talk about it. You probably one of those five hundred. If we're going to talk about post quantum crypto. Maybe i was really interested in. Public key crypto systems in how quantum computers could be used to break them. So that's specific staff of probably. Although less over time i guess as i've stepped into maybe a broader a broader role within. I need to get back on the show to talk about. Post quantum crypto kaz. Admittedly tell you. I have absolutely so little knowledge in that stays. It's not even funny all right so you we wanted to get this conversation. Getting kicked off around Around open source You've done some work in this in this area. Tell us a little bit about de get started their shirt so Of course at nc group we do like of security research and some of this is the more traditional vulnerability research so about a year and a half ago. Maybe there were a bunch of people that were getting very interested in figuring out. How do we better secure of open-source ecosystem because we know that there's been this sort of lacombe. Ole finding of random security bugs sometimes super inconsequential on super small projects. Sometimes absolutely massive about things like heart bleed so so like across time There's been there's been an uncovering in a very patchy way of vulnerabilities within open source software. So we were interested in really finding a way to coordinate impulse together and figure out what are some strategic steps forward in open source software security cool all right so look there. There has been so much raging debate And i use that word. Because it's almost like the windows versus lennox versus mac discussion. These days right turns into like a pseudo religious argument oval open source versus commercial software. Which one's better which one's more secure in insecurities Everyone goes and even if you had an app. Even for those of us have spurs one way or the other. You wait five minutes. And there's there's proof to the contrary so a you mentioned heart bleed right like then there's bash bog that forget the name of it but i mean if it had its own logo and i think we even made a theme song for crying out loud like it got it. It's gotten a little absurd. Yeah people are spending too much time marketing. Their bugs navy. But but you know we we open ourselves stuff was such a. I guess a revelation or wakeup call for a lot of us because there was this there was this belief that somehow open source. Stuff is you know. can infallible. Like all right. There's so many people looking at it and you know it's being reviewed in real time. It's the community. Always like their community has the opportunity to bug on either. We didn't or or there's something wrong with that argument. Yeah there's this tragedy of the comments thing that happens around open source software where we assume that just because someone can look at it. Someone has And we also assume that if someone's looking at it they are not an adversary and totally wanna do a responsible coordinated disclosure which is not often or not necessarily always the case so the i think hardly really opened our eyes to the impact that these bugs can have. I mean if you think about it. This was wet like spring. Twenty fourteen that this came out in public Showed us what the risk really looks like in practice you know. There was a single critical vulnerability found within an individual open source project that was maintained by only a few volunteers recall correctly. Like maybe one person was working on it. Fulltime and this was like the underlying infrastructure for like a non trivial portion of the entire internet yet and it compromises security of. I think it was like seventeen or somewhere. Unplug percent of all of the web servers on the internet. And it's like. I think this really shows us how like important. These software systems are and how many dependencies trace back to open source software. So when people are having this debate what is more secure open source or proprietary software. Obviously there's trade offs right. Proprietary can't necessarily have everyone look at the source but you're at least guaranteeing that someone probably is looking at the source an all of these other things but i mean it's it almost becomes a moot point to me because whether you make a case for proprietary software being more secure or open source software being more secure weather proprietary or open source. There's often dependencies upon core pieces of infrastructure that are open source so finding a way to secure these things matters and out of like what came with heart lead. The lennox foundation started like the core infrastructure initiative which put millions of dollars into helping secure open source software. So really open necessarily just kind of the next phase of of that work effort will be good excellent point because this is something that the scene repeatedly because a lot of the the foundations of nobody writes all their libraries right. I mean only the insane Scratch even when. I was the world's worst developer a million years ago. There would still be things you would include you do from other y- find something like okay. I need to know how to do. X y and z. Like i have no idea how to write. I'm gonna go find a l and include that. I can bring in pop that in want to use somebody else's optimized i don't have threat from scratch. Brilliant web apps are the greatest way to see this in action because there's just tons of frameworks plug ins and whatever and a lot of that stuff is open source maintained by the community and then we find out that there are a event julia every once in a while we find a massive bugs in in some of these things and then we gotta go hunting and got to realize that A lot of the commercial products out there have been source things inside them. That are vulnerable that it will like okay. So how do we fix this now. Yeah and like those transitive. Dependencies can often go many layers deep lake sometimes depending on something. That's depending on something. That's depending on open source library. Which itself is depending on some other open source component and often it can go many layers steve unlike just understanding those transitive dependencies where that risk comes into any product. Yet open source or commercial is very hard. It's something that Organizations don't necessarily do The organizations that rely upon these critical things don't always finds them or study them at the depth that you might expect that they would. So there's a definite need for folks that are interested in doing security research in working with open source maintainers to really come together and pull in the same direction. Otherwise we just have this infinite like finding of random bugs but if you think about. I don't know the statistics that ucla seve owner vulnerability databases. There's tens of thousands of vulnerabilities disclosed every year. That gets vs. There's way more than that that are being disclosed. That maybe don't tv's there's even more than that that are being found in not patched and there's probably even more than that being created input into existence so when we think about just the massive stale at which there exist 'vulnerability in sourcing beyond Clearly something needs to change in in the ways that we develop software in the ways that we secure software throat like this. Dlc in in what happens when we integrate these at risk components. So
Alphabet beats analyst expectations with cloud business continuing to grow
"Tech titan surge in fourteen and a third percent since monday adding one hundred seventy two billion dollars to its market cap. It's alphabet the stock ripping higher after a stellar earnings. Beat earlier in the week. So karen you always advocated for the rerating of this stock. At what point does it look expensive non here that looks. I could argue. It looks less expensive today than it did a week ago. I mean the magnitude of that earnings beat was so extraordinary. Just the beat. The beat itself was thirty percent higher than what the street expected which was already. I mean that is huge. Cloud was great. i think will continue see strengthened advertising. We haven't seen travel really come back yet. They'll be a big beneficiary of that. Don't forget the cash horde of one hundred and fifteen billion dollars which it gets almost no credit for so. I think you know when you back out the cash. The pe ratio for next year is just slightly above the market and yet it's should be well above the market so i think it's still in the tech world. I think it's a great value staying long talk about rereading at least fifteen firms on wall street raised their price targets on this stock since the earnings report susquehanna is the street high of three thousand dollars share which is a lot higher from where it is here. Where do you stand on alphabet. Don't fight the feeling i mean. Listen i'd rather people buy into this than be late. And we've seen it with names like tesla's and other and i know not to go there but they have literally crushed care didn't leave a lot of meat on the bones while i will say that. They've shown that they could hit on. All cylinders continued to invest for the future. Don't forget about a thomas and other bench. There are still aspects and travel to this that let them exist now in this world that we know and also allow them upside wants to return to normal. I'm glad you mentioned travel. Because that's a that's a big vertical for them. About ten percent of search results were travel. Pre pandemic so feasibly. If we got back to normal steve you could recapture that absolutely when you look at it Karen said uncloudy cloud was up. Forty seven percent. Gross revenue was up twenty three percent youtube ads. Sp ed revenue was up. Twenty three percent. This is one that has been underrated a literally by the wall street community and it can move much higher from here. I think we're you guys are all in full agreement on this one right james. I am in full agreement. Full disclosure maybe brothers global head of google. They know all about all people in this company has so many pockets of value that they have him in the unleashed yet ton of upside here to thirty seven agreement on win agreed with karen agree with the whole gang of google's got a lot of room to run and they can control their destiny. Continue to own even at these levels
Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles photographed holding hands amid reports they're dating
"This episode ready to go ready to publish and then about thirty minutes ago this news about olivia wilde and harry styles dating broke and we had to kind of. Just come on and talk about it. So we're going to go through a full detailed breakdown of everything we know. And then get into a discussion. But julie do wanna just give it immediate reaction. Yeah i mean whole he should know the skeptic in me isn't one hundred percent convinced yet but let's go through it okay so first off age wise just because everybody's wondering olivia is thirty six in harry's twenty six let's also keep in mind that olivia wilde. Jason seditious announced their split in november. They were never technically married. They were engaged for seven years. I remember at the time we did a pretty lengthy discussion on that. And when you go through their history you find out you know. She a pretty interesting dating history. Previously they have two kids and according to sources they had broken up at the beginning of the pandemic. It's been really amicable. They had great co-parenting and kind of the general consensus was like. There's really no drama here. I also think just as a total side note. I remember when it came out of the time. Everybody was shocked that they weren't married. Because i guess we just forgotten that you know he yeah. I also think the time line here are so important that they split the beginning of the urine. We only found out in november. Yes that is crucial. Also keep in mind olivia's currently directing and also starring the film. Don't worry darling. Harry's in florence was in it so we can kind of that. That is where they've gotten close if this is true but the reason that all this is circulating today is because they were seen holding hands at jeffrey as offs wedding. Jeffrey as off is harry's manager and he's also the son of irving shelley's off that is kim kardashian. Best friend's parents stadler kris jenner. Best friends and jeffries marrying glenn christianson. She is the global head of music partnerships at apple. Are you initiating this wedding and it was super small. There were sixteen people because of covid. And harry brought olivia as his plus one so they were seen holding hands. I'm sure you saw. He looked so handsome. She looked so beautiful she was in this kind of floral maxi dress gown type of thing. They were then seen after the wedding arriving at his house a source told people quote. They weren't montecito california this weekend for wedding. They were affectionate around their friends held hands and look very happy. They've dated for a few weeks. I've so more things to read. But i like. Can we just freak out about this for a second. Yes we can. We can freak out about it really. I have to tell you. This is the last thing i ever saw coming. And i actually remember when we had kind of just hypothesize about what we thought was going to happen. I remember for some reason. We had thought that zach braff and florence few broke up and i think it was said. Yeah you know. I could totally see florence and harry dating not in my wildest dreams. Did i envision a libyan harry. Well at the time the she was still adjacent stake as we had no reason to And even with the knowledge of them breaking up. I don't think i necessarily saw this coming. Although harry's track record liking older women does make sense here not that olivia's old by any means. I just mean older than him But the reason that. I really do believe this. I mean the skeptic in me is obviously like i said before. It's still a little bit hesitant to say. It's fully true because i think holding hands isn't the most incriminating evidence but when you think about a small wedding only sixteen people harry's officiating the wedding to bring a plus one it kind of feels like a big deal may first of all i agree. Second of all it makes sense. You know what. I mean. When i i wasn't i wouldn't have necessarily seen it coming but as i'm looking at him i'm like okay. I could see that she everything we've ever heard about her is that she's so great. He's very mature for his age. Also another reason that points me to believe that this is true is because you can't forget her break up with. Jason apparently was at the beginning of the year. So it's not like this has been one month since this big break up and also it's. He was officiating. The wedding and this was his manager. It's not like he's going to some you know random wedding where he didn't know anyone that's very in my opinion kind of like sacred thing to bring someone do so i i may be wrong and i'm totally fine if i'm wrong but i'm going to put my cards in here. In my official vote on the record is going to say this is actually happening.
"global head" Discussed on Hurdle
"Today. I eye am catching up with the one. The only coach bennett coach. How you doing today. i'm doing. I'm doing great. How are you. I'm doing while i'm i'm actually kind of excited because in our first recording earlier this year we weren't looking at each other and now we're looking at each other. I know i apologize ahead of time for. You've got to look at it. i love it. I love it. It's got face for audio. I'll put it to you that way. I'll i disagree. I think this mustache needs this kind of pr. You know appreciate that. Well thanks so much for your time today. One of the most listened to you. Episodes of hurdle twenty twenty the coach bennett episode selves. Sorry more testament to you than me. Tell me what house twenty twenty been treating you. What's what's been some of the biggest changes for you this year. How twenty twenty. Been treating me while i think twenty twenty is treated me like it's treated everyone else it's with with no respect to my feelings or You know my my wellbeing. It's twenty twenty minutes half year and Consistently tough if you rewind it was. It was really january When we started to head into at least the initial discussions that there may be a pandemic and I met one of the hardest parts has been Not having a light really at the end of the tunnel. And i think that's that's if you look at really why people have great fear Pretty much about anything. It's about the unknown. If you know what's going to happen you're you're much less afraid Because one you can plan and you can anticipate the same thing with with running. I mean that's why people get scared on the starting line. 'cause they're not quite sure what's going to happen And i feel like we almost been stuck on starting line for a really long time like like. How long is this race. we don't know. How hard are we going to have to run. What's the weather the means to add to make this all about running but you know there's a lot of similarities and i think that's that's been the hardest. Part of twenty twenty is know was twenty. Twenty gonna turn into twenty twenty one and we're just gonna have twenty twenty part two was going to extend into twenty twenty two. Have you know twenty twenty part three and that's hard because you're trying to stay positive and you're you're trying to not let alone the negatives way it down and you're trying to make plans and help other people and help yourself so i think the best thing we can all do is admit when things are hard and i think twenty twenty was a really really brutal year but again i think we also have to realize that we're here saying it's a really brutal year. Which means we made it And that's a testament to i think a lot of people's friends and support systems and There's a lot of news about bad leaders in the world but we've had a lot of good leaders to we've had a lot of good leaders on a local level. So i think in the midst of darkness you can uncover some really beautiful things as well. You know the stars. Don't come out during the day. So i think maybe we can also spend a little time at the end of the year focusing attention on you know what we're grateful for thankful for people and events and again it doesn't mean ignoring the negative Just make sure we don't ignore the positive and you mentioned having a lot of good leaders For so many athletes you being one of them. How has your role as a coach kind of maybe shifted or or how has this impacted you in in. What you do with nike in the past year I think it's. It's made me spend more time celebrating. I've always been a big proponent of celebrating the little things. But i think i've tried to really work hard to acknowledge when i see something that i think deserves a little attention. It may maybe in the past. I was saying we should all be celebrating little things but i think now a little bit more active hunting out those moments Having the first time we talked. I mentioned how i i started my day. Just really trying to react to or were maybe be proactive. And be in touch with as many different peoples possible that hasn't stopped and I think admitted it back in the spring when we spoke to i think i think as much good as that does For other people to receive a you know a high five so to speak it has it has saved me. You know. And i think there's going to be a A kind of a delayed reaction to twenty twenty where we're gonna look back and realize the things that saved us and to me the the opportunity to tell somebody they did a good job and them respond back so positively that was that was saving me you know and and as a person but also i was a better dad after that because i was a little more positive as better husband. You know I was less of an asshole. When i was driving down the road because that so i owe way more to the you know the the athletes and the people that i've connected with this year than than they could ever omay and so do the other people on the road. Yeah i emma jersey driver so i have an excuse but people don't know that the oregon plates anymore it used to be kind of excused when they see the jersey plates but not anymore so then. Let's talk about lessons that you've learned this year specific this year obviously as a leader you are constantly evolving constantly trying to bring us some inspiration to athletes worldwide. When you boil it down. What have you learned in twenty twenty. There's nothing i don't. I don't think i've learned anything new. But i think lessons that i've learned that maybe i had put on the backburner or You know a lot of times you can. You have to relearn things you already know You know there's a great a great moment a really. I find coaching moments. And all sorts of banks. You know like if people say with the best book to read about coaching. I bring up a chapter from you know huckleberry finn or tom sawyer. I think that's there's a chapter in there but why whitewashing fence. That's that's basically how you coach somebody to run. But when i think at twenty twenty. Oddly enough i think of a castaway with tom hanks and well and i'm gonna talk about wilson because we had to you know there's a great lesson in there that he would not have survived. If you didn't have wilson it wasn't the coconuts like he. He could've survived physically but by the time they found him he would have been so far. Gone if he had not had wilson than it wouldn't have mattered that he was physically alive. He would have been emotionally and spiritually dead. And i think in twenty twenty. We were forced to find our wilson's because it because we we couldn't come together in groups. We were about to go through a christmas. You're not going to be able to see your loved ones. If you're actually you know taking into account their wellbeing So i it proved to me. Just how important wilson's are in which has just human contact you know and it's yeah we have shelter and you know the pandemic didn't take away and you know we have access to food. We've all these things. But i think it made us realize just how essential human connection is and it's whether it's our kids needing to be in school you know when it's safe to be in there not just so they can learn but so they can have connection with their peers and their friends and it's the same with adult so to me. I think in a way technology has.

"global head" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"It hasn't happened. I have to say these numbers are really, really good at first Look town, there's a road resiliency there Right now We have an understanding that each house has its own character. The legacy of Morgan Stanley is Stephen Roach, literally modernizing mark modern market economics. Through the digital through the idea of actually publishing on retail sales. The moment it was done. It was a miracle 15 and 20 years ago carrying that legacy for it is China. He's Morgan Stanley, chief economist, Global Head of economics and, among other things, riding herd on a wonderful group of economists worldwide, including Ellen Zechner. Jane. Thank you so much for joining us this morning. You see retail sales with a nice Abdou are we misjudging queue for and kyu won worldwide where they could actually outperformed the caution. Um, that's what we have been actually highlighting. As you know, we've been making this call that we will see this reshape our company, and the data just continues to confirm that we are on that path, and there is no stalling, especially for us and China, which other two big parts of the world Their data continues to surprise on the upside, and we're expecting something similar on China where we get the GDP data on Monday. How much does the increase in virus cases challenge your assumption of a V shaped recovery? Look, I think I mentioned this on this. So before that what We have been highlighting the equation between dividers and the economy is changing. So as we keep seeing this new case is rising again. We have to temper down the expectation off its impact on the economy. We've been off the view that gross will barter it in the next three months, but it will still continue to make progress towards that reach recovery call that he had made. Which is that we will see the US economy will reach people read levels by second quarter ofthe 2021. Just look at today's retail sales data. If you kind of try and do some backward math on bed, predicted person consumption spending number Person consumption spending number could be as much as 98% off Corbett levels by end of September. And that just tell you that how much progress we have made so far, So the bishop recovery part looks very much secure. Well, Okay. But this is all predicated on this idea that the balance sheet of homes having bolstered by the stimulus that we'd already gotten from Washington D. C. If we don't get that re upped how many more months can consumers continue to sustain the recovery? That's a very good question. So what we have is highlighting is that the underlying strength off the consumer balance sheet as well as income standing has been quite good. So, for example, personal income as off August, and this is not for September, but as of August person in comfort household Is only about by a big coffee lovers by 2%. And the excess saving stock that the consumers have built in the last five months because of the stimulus and the fact they couldn't spend in the nation. Months is $1.1 trillion. The consumers have enough room to continue their spending into this winter months. Kevin, You've been very bold and quite bullish on the economy and you've been an out liar. A Morgan Stanley have let that cold over the last several months coming out of that huge contraction earlier this year. Every economic house, though, looks at their coal their base case and acknowledges a key vulnerability in their forecast. What is it for? You check him right now. Well, I think the key vulnerability is essentially the new cases. If they force aggressive, shut down, that will be the rest to our forecast. I think the stimulus is less authoress. Because of the math that I mentioned to you on the households friends, but it's really this rise in new cases. If they really force aggressive, shut down. That would be the near.

"On Bloomberg radio my special guest today is Brian Dees he is the global head of sustainable investing at blackrock let's talk a little bit about climate change and what we're doing in response to it do you help to actually draft the Paris climate agreement what was your reaction to seeing the current administration withdraw from that and to how dangerous is it for the United States to not be a part of that well look I think it's in the the economic and national security interest of every country to be a finding a coordinate solution to this issue yeah I think the the impacts both the physical impacts that we're seeing that you know you we were seeing with our own eyes Californians are seeing if people the Midwest or Centralia astro yeah and you know up and down the east coast the United States we're so we're seeing that everywhere and we're also seeing the risks from a financial perspective of what it means to actually move toward a low carbon economy pressure on fossil intensive business models more economic opportunity for low carbon solutions and I think that's the piece that is is is missing for this conversation sometime as you think about Paris and you think about a global effort what Paris really did was climate change internationally used to be this big debate between two teams it was like a soccer match developed countries on the one hand developing countries and the others fighting about who was in charge of trick of having to solve this problem what Paris did was change that from head to head fight into a race we're all working together and now the question is which countries can actually get ahead in being the clean energy superpower so that twenty first century who's going to actually capture the economic opportunity enormous economic opportunity it's going to come from this transition in these new industries and so at the end of the day every country should want to be part of that race because the economic dividends that it creates so is your chart yesterday from Torsten Slok of Deutsche Bank basically showing the US gets only about ten percent of our energy supply from renewables and I remember that more or less correctly that's from wind and solar if you look at the zero carbon including nuclear and hydro the number is the number is closer to forty right but we all really that much because we've had a pretty robust nuclear and hydro not as much as France has on the nuclear side or hydro so dependent on the local geology but we've had that for decades yeah yeah and so what has been the marginal increase in low carbon or zero carbon energy sources over the past decade or so we'll see the two big things that you've seen happen in the U. S. energy mix R. one the rapid increase of renewable spring onto the grid and V. the rate of change and adoption of renewables is very fast even though we're still you know we're still moving up at a relatively low base and the second is the deduction of and build out of natural gas as a baseload cheaper baseload energy source to call which is primarily manifesting itself in the transition of the big electrical generation plants that used to be mostly coal fired and now have seen some dramatically move towards gas is that fair correct so those are the two the two big dynamics is gas driving coal out of the energy mix and renewables coming on to the grid rapidly that's that's the story of the last decade I think this story the next decade is really going to be about what happens not the future of utilities but the utilities of the future because we're gonna move increasingly toward a scenario where we are electrifying everything and so the great and the great applications are going to become less straight forward of you have a point source where you generate a bunch of electrons in the figure out of transmission and distribution system we're going to have increasingly distributed generation you're gonna have sources you know its sources of power and sources of storage that are plugging into the grid in different ways which will create new stresses but also a bunch of new opportunities different that will be one of the things that make the next decade different from the last so we converted to natural gas about two or three years ago not only do we do that I ran a a backup generator on top of that and I noticed not only in my not burning home heating oil on burning gas the price is a fraction of what it was and if you live anywhere north of the Mason Dixon line and when heated pool oh my god I used to get thousand dollar oil deliveries it seemed like every other day and now it cost me two hundred Bucks keep the pool with eighty six degrees into November it's so incredibly cheap why hasn't this transition taking place faster where we going as fast as we can well the good news is that the transition has both economics and physics on its side.
"global head" Discussed on Marketing Trends
"A lot but are there any more or the is there any advice you can offer for another marketer this listening that says that sounds great but how do I start implementing customer success stories like that I think it all goes down to recruiting and sourcing in finding those really compelling stories because I think that that's like our team does a great job of finding those small business owners that are excellent storytellers maybe have a bigger following on social channels but at the end of the day it's really around like I just finding the right people to those stories but I think we're lucky in that we have so many to choose from it's been pretty easy for us so far but I do think our team both on the insight side and also on the creative side do job of sourcing small business toners you mentioned the phrase mission driven culture earlier how is square mission driven in what's the mission here at mission here is to really like build tools in service says that help small business owners start running grow their business and so that is kind of core to everything that we do here it's really about evening the playing field and just giving access and helping everyone thrive in succeed in the economy and so it just literally according to everything that we do I don't know if you're walking down here you saw the words above the big conference room that just said economic empowerment that's what we live and breathe here and that's why we always start with our customers and how is the thing that we're building or what we're saying going to actually help them and how do we make the barriers for entry a little bit easier so I think when you think about scores origins and how he got started the whole impetus behind why square got started was that people couldn't make a sale because they couldn't take credit cards because they just weren't a big enough business in the process of being able to start processing credit cards really hard and so we made this piece of hardware that plugged into your phone but also the process for signing up I think is probably one of scorers like earliest innovations which is needed like you're sending up for instagram right like you can sign up for free it's really easy you don't have to wait in line don't have to go to a bank you don't have to fill out a lot of Forbes you can really just oh and download this APP and get started and you can do it from your phone and so that was probably like earliest route innovation and just like giving access to people who were like so that no one ever had Nisa Sal and I think so many customers voice was heard in the product because I think if I remember the story correctly there were so many customer development conversations that were had before the got created so those type of origin stories always result in interesting companies interesting products so is there any advice you have for other marketing executives who are listening right now is there any leadership advice or words of wisdom you can share so I think that marketers today just need to be courageous and have a lot of conviction so a lot of the things that we're doing right now are things that square has never done before I always try to use data backup why we WANNA make those decisions I definitely think that helps really data driven company insurance you can make a really rational logical business case for the most part I think there's a lot of really smart people here who that will make sense and but I think that having conviction is probably the biggest piece of advice that would have for other marketers like if you're not passionate about your idea and if you're not willing to fall all on your sword for the ideas that you have it a lot harder to get everyone else especially inside a larger company to be willing to take that risk into go on that journey with you or the favorite tools or software products you're using to help you visualize data better or make data driven decisions being the use looker for all of the data Israel's Asian and we have a lot of other tools I would say there are more sort of life behind the scenes and we do a lot of our like infrastructure and ad tech mark like in-house skier dashboards are great but really it's everything that goes into the dashboards it actually the the data really interesting and compelling and that was one of the big things that I worked on for the first year that I was at square is there a time in your career where you went through maybe a dark night of the soul or when you had to make a really hard decision and if so would you be open to share in were I think there's probably a couple I think probably one of my biggest decisions in my career was the decision to move to California so my whole family's on the east coast and halfway through hi time at Yahoo team to the company and there was a lot that was changing and it'll have ideas around how I thought things could be better the came we got a new CMO that was cathy savage one of the mentors that I mentioned earlier and in one of our earliest conversations she said I agree with some of your ideas if you want to do those I think you need to move to California which was something that was really never on my radar I never thought I would move here and I think that was a big the faith and it didn't happen right away we took a couple months to make sure that it was going to be a good fit between us that was pretty pivotal I think just moved to be here in Silicon Valley and I just Mr side and then there came a point in time where I had to choose it was no longer going to be a blend of business to business and consumer and I decided to completely over to the consumer side which was really like leaving behind everything that I knew that I knew really well nerve wracking your was making soiree nerve racking and I think a lot of people look a little bit meteor and I thought it was hard and really interesting and I just thought like for me in terms of where I would see the Moose professional growth in my career that that would be place and so it's definitely a little scary 'cause usually I'd like to take a role that's rooted in something that I know I can do well and something else that I don't know yet and that was sort of a complete pit of it is just like listening and I feel like I've learned a lot from people that are underneath me on my team so people who have experienced in certain areas so I like to listen a lot especially when due to a company I listened to a lot of podcast and I also read a ton of articles and so I feel like I probably learned the most still from reading articles online advertising related topics although when I came to square there was the big learning curve for me in just understanding the payment space in Crypto currencies and I definitely listen to a lot podcast on crypto currencies that could really understand like bitcoin and blockchain and so those were hugely helpful for me when I first got to square just to kind of get rant up on in that part of the industry any favours Laura Shins podcast or any favorite crypto podcasts or marketing pus- I think most of my podcast I listen to really around like stories about leadership so I definitely like I love how I built this I think that's a great podcast just hearing people's stories of how they got started in all of the challenges that they faced along the way there's a couple of others like that wisdom from the top is a new one that I like right now as well and then I don't remember I think it was Tim Ferriss podcasts on crypto currencies and blockchain and Bitcoin that was the one I mean I was maybe like four hours long so it definitely took me a couple of days to get through it but I would say after that I felt really well versed in all of the different currencies and so that was probably the best one on that topic so fun side note have you seen the data that shows there actually isn't a drop off the longer episodes with podcasts the drop off isn't as severe as marketers thought so for instance podcasts that are like four to five hours we have some of the best retention in the industry I personally like long podcasts one that I can listen to on my way to work on my way home from work is great because then I don't have to like fuss with my phone is there anything that we didn't talk about that we should I think that what's interesting is the expectation of the role that brands play I think that kind of maps nicely to the idea behind storytelling and the idea that brands actually need to be good storytellers and so I think that's a really interesting trend I think especially as we see like more N. Z. and millennials in the workforce I think there's an expectation just that rans are human and that they stand for something and I think that everybody wants to be behind under brand that stands for something so I think it's been interesting to see like where brands for taking a stance I think that will continue to be something that in my opinion like great brands he distinguished from knock great brands by the way that as sort of take a stance on issues in the way that they show their human side a little bit more I think that's something that to be a part of marketing as all of these it could be even better and so definitely look for people who are really curious like who are asking the questions I hate when I ask people questions in the answer is because we've always done growth mindset I definitely see people with more fixed mindset who are sort of a little bit more like structured and rigid have a harder time sort of adapting to any changes that are all marketers to have a lot of empathy not just for our end customer but also for internal stakeholders I think that it's where we have a lot of internal stakeholders.

"Here. The Wednesday morning looking at twenty third day January. Talked about some of this year week or so ago, but this was like hot off the press yesterday. Talking about the the modern technology, and all this voice activated everything. Now, you can talk to your car. You can talk to your refrigerator. You can talk to your what your washing machine. You've got Alexa, and the Google home in all these different devices. What a major electronics firm started seeing some strange documents being printed out remotely. On more than one hundred of their so-called smart printers late last year. Frantically contacted the manufacturer to say what the hell's going on? They wondered how and why an unauthorized third party was sending documents to their printers remotely. And worse than that. They feared their their entire corporate network had been breached. Well, that manufacturer immediately called in their big guns. Yeah. The global head of x force read a professional hacking team at IBM securities looking for answers. Unless you believe in ghosts. You get kind of concerned with your printer. Just starts printing stuff that you can't account for. Now the team quickly identified the problem. It was a flaw in the printers remote access punctuation. And they were able to assert a patch that fixed that vulnerability. This guy says his firm finding and fixing testing for flaws and breaches in these smart devices is their specialty. I run a team of hackers is how they described the role. Clarified. They're a paid professional hackers who looked for bugs and glitches and malfunctions and with demand for all. These smart devices were you've got your smart lights to outdoor sprinklers. He said his jobs got a whole lot. Busier in recent years. We're receiving five times the number of requests for security testing. Of IOT internet of things devices. They call them. Growth has been immense over last just the last eighteen months. As I mentioned with the popularity of smart speakers, Amazon echo, Google home. The smart home. That's now making its way into mainstream America. It's no longer just the tech. Geeks in the fold obsessed millennials. Who are getting into this tech universe? Gadgets to let them control their lights. They're TV their appliance their door locks even the lawn sprinklers with a voice command. Or a tap on the smartphone. But all this buzz in hyper putting pressure on the smart device makers. While they rushed to get their gadgets into the market while the demand is there and sometimes that mean, well that means security takes a bit of a back seat. All Mr Henderson said is the cybercriminals. Are watching there waiting for the opportunity to pounce? All right horse feathers. Hey there. Take me back. I guess that's my earlier call.

And this to add to a little bit of that corporate readout that you did, you know, I think passion of mine really started probably around nine years ago while while I spent the many years before that at a mental health solutions. I started at the time New York healthcare technology, meet up and started with four people in a room. And then I think this point Alex fair who runs what's now called health two point on your city chapter has over five thousand members.

"global head" Discussed on Exchanges at Goldman Sachs
"Yeah. This is exchange Goldman Sachs where we discussed developments currently shaping markets industries in the global economy, object Seward, global head of corporate communications here at the firm. We're in our London studio today as part of a deep dive, nor merging economic and market themes around your today will be talking European equities with Sharon bell, senior European equity strategist at Goldman Sachs investment research. Sharon, welcome to the program come. Let's start by setting the state. How have European equities performed in recent months and with the outlook? Well, I have to say the hump performed super well that roughly flat this year, if you invested that's not really return, but they haven't been dreadful either. So if I compare them globally than European equities, a flat US's up about five percents sonny's outperformed. Whereas if you've been investing in emerging walk, it said downfall six percent and they had been not volatile as well. So if you investing in Europe. For diversification purposes. It wouldn't have been too much disaster, but a win, say it before. Very well. Know in your research, take a look at factors value, momentum growth, how various factors performed in Europe at the moment and why the things that have done really well this year have either been growth companies companies with a particular innovative. They happen to be in a growth area growth market all companies with very strong balance sheets based economies that offer investors. Not just a valuation was cheap companies that have got up particularly grocery mid, for example, our basket of companies which are investing extra Capac and our Indy and have good returns. Cash returns on that has done extremely wealthy. It doesn't do well every single year, but it's done well, this year's people be looking for that role of them value companies, value companies will be companies are just cheap and could do because you're buying them at a very, very cheap, inexpensive price. And I think there were reasons for that. I mean, one is that the hasn't been superman of economic growth in Europe. That's been. Celebrating percentage. That's not too bad for Europe. That's not too bad, but he hasn't been accelerating. So I think that's one of the reasons I another reason is bone deal to very, very low. And when bond yields low and stay low, particularly in Europe that tells you something about load, nominal, longtime growth, which I think people are concerned about again, stays people move towards companies that have got structural gross stories behind them. So you can kind of buck the trend of this low nominal growth environment. Also, the low bond yields means the discount. Right? Is very low. That's very important for a company that's growing because most of cash you're gonna get from that companies way into the future. See, won't you discount right to be very low to favor those stocks. And then I think finally, some of the big value sectors like telecoms banks, big structural problems this year, and that's another reason they've underperformed..

"global head" Discussed on Novel Targets
"Hi, I'm Daniel Chan vice president global head of cancer immunotherapy at Genentech and Roche year ago poke test we heard, but you're writing in new paper, we have a pay patrol the immune set point what's the idea behind that? The idea behind the set point is to try come to grips with the fact that people exhibit highly variable resp-. To immunotherapy in particular. And one of the main reasons for it is that people have highly variable immune set points. In other words, some people are more likely to respond to certain stimuli and others, and we try to understand what are the various factors that contribute to the likelihood or lack thereof of response. One of the nice things about the cancer. And set point is that it does build upon the cancer immunity cycle that is still the foundation, but we're the cancer immunity cycle. Tries to simplify all of cancer immune biology, the cancer set point builds upon it and book ends it and takes it to its extreme complexity, and it's important to recognize that complexity because what it does is it creates a framework to now start to fit in all of the developing data in this field and give us a way to start to look at it all together in a way that we can understand it hoick research has joined to use this in practice too. Of his concept. We have all of these different multifactorial factors influence people's immune system and everybody has an individual immune set point. I think it gets used in two ways one is in the first instance to better understand the mechanisms of immune response. So if for example, you can understand the individual genetic variations that either predispose someone to respond or not then you can look at what the affected or what the variable genes are and understand where they fit into an overall mechanistic sense think longer term, what would hope is that you can get a idea in amalgamated set point view that you can kind of use diagnostic in some senses probably years off. But nevertheless, you add up all of the various things that would contribute to somebody's likelihood of responding to a particular therapy and know enough about what they are. So that you could tailor or modify your therapies accordingly. It's interesting it does allow. How this if we think about it from the clinical standpoint to take any individual patient and understand the complete intricacies of their cancer immune interaction, and so in many ways, this is a hyper personalized approach that one can take now in the clinic it may or may not lead to hyper personalized therapy. But it does at the minimum allow us to understand clinical data in a, hyper personalized fashion, any given patient understanding all of the different factors that may influence, whether they develop an active anti-cancer immune response or don't develop when at all environmental factors like but microbiome sunlight how we possibly going to capture a west someone fits on. This dial is to a are what the hiawatha low in. Well, if you're living in the north Finland in the middle of the winter than sunlight, probably isn't going to be too much of a factor, assuming that sunlight effects are acute. As opposed to chronic but more seriously. I mean, the microbiome is I think something is attracting a great deal of potential over the last several months because there is more and more objective evidence to say that the particular 'Bacterial communities that live in your gut actually do play a large role in one's ability to respond to different types of immunotherapy or even exhibit the adverse events associated with some of these therapies once you know, that you can then either avoid or include particular types of therapies, or possibly even take an action to alter the microbial communities that are found in particular patient, so that individual response better or with a lower adverse event incidents.
