Can you take me through some of what you were feeling as you decided to go public. Yeah i think originally. It wasn't any sort of long thought out thing going public. It was just me going on a friend's podcast and she has She'd actually been someone who is very close to me helping me through a lot of really difficult times and we kind of just got talking and i found kind of in the moment that was finally ready to talk about it and afterwards it was kind of like this the little bit of a flood of things and then especially after making the olympic team.

Why Growth at Grayscale Exploded in the Last Quarter
"It's recently quarterly report gray scale announced record inflows. Tell us about that. So on a quarter, we'd be says, our team puts out a report that looks back at investment activity across the gray scale family of products over that most recent quarter in we try and break down for the investment community which products have inflows, which products more popular than others, what the breakdown is different types of investors any other trends that we're seeing amongst our investor base. and. Though regularity, these reports have really allowed them to become almost the defacto sentiment indicator for investment in the days in in two this year, we raised over nine hundred, million dollars in just that second quarter, and that was on the back of raising over half a billion dollars in Q. One this year. So we're really seeing influence into the gray scale products at a record pace. And that's almost double. What do you think accounts for the massive increase in interest? I think that the macro environment is causing a lot of investors to focus on Crypto in a way that perhaps had before I think one of the most topical things that investors are talking to us about is unlimited quantitative easing and as they look at how much the Fed and other governmental bodies are printing, they're really starting to drill into the verifiable scarcity of assets like get. Coin and when you think about that very important attribute that bitcoin has and then you combine it with bitcoins uncoordinated nature and it's not just bitcoin. Right? It's other digital currencies as well. Investors are starting to appreciate that there is a new in uncoordinated return that they can maybe get from having exposure to digital currencies, and now the timers in a lot of investors digging on the space. and. So when you talk about the quantitative easing that does, of course, immediately bring to mind bitcoin because of the cap on its supply and when you started your answer, you were talking primarily in Bitcoin or about bitcoin but I wondered how the interest in the currencies was spread out. Is it? Eighty percent in Bitcoin or you know what are you seeing in terms of the interest across the various crypto sense? So Greasy now has ten different investment products and a great deal bitcoin trust is our flagship product. It's been around the longest. It's our largest no question about it We've seen a market uptaken interest across the other products. So in particular, I'd highlight in cute too. We saw a lot of interest in the gray scale at theory and trust. In really seeing more investment really coming in across the board and I believe now of our returning institutional investors, we now see over eighty percent of them having now invested in more than one race cal product meaning they. Now you have exposure to more than one digital currency and it's interesting to think about that audience because for many of them, Bitcoin is their first foray. It's the place that they're most comfortable with it done the most research on typically it's what gets them comfortable and gets them to give their telling the space, and we're now releasing a growing trend of investors not just wanting acquainting exposure, but they actually see diversification benefits of having more than one crypto currency exposure in their portfolio. And when you said that if him was another one of the assets that was gaining a lot of interest what's driving that because the theorem does not have a cap on its supply. So I was curious to know why they were focusing on that out of all the other non bitcoin assets. Well. I think BIRLA investors at theory like coin has a lot of staying power on it to like acquaintance overcome a lot of adversity and I think investors are starting to drill into some of the east cases around the theory. powering defy and a lot of other new applications which theory is really targeted towards where I think for more investors thinking about Bitcoin, they're really thinking about it more along the lines of digital gold or a digital store of value. And who is coming to you now, are you seeing interest from new groups and what types of investors are coming to gray scale? We'll still gracie obeys assets primarily from institutional investors. So we deal primarily with accredited investors. So it does include a lot of high net worth individuals and. Family Office is financial advisers but believe the vast majority of the actual dollars that we're getting are coming from the hedge funds on and then other types of institutions, endowments, and pensions, and I think one of the most things we actually broke this out in some reports. This year is that the allocations aren't coming from any one kind investor I. Think you know for a lot of folks bitcoin digital currency investing its momentum traders or it's for funds that really only are experienced in investing in technology or In. Venture capital things that are really on the riskiest end of the spectrum in Farrah's when we look at the actual mandates of our investors, it's everyone from global macro funds to value funds to risk arbitrage funds. Any every single kind of investor mandate is represented in the gray scale investor bays, which I think the takeaway is. Digital currency investing is certainly not for everyone is risky too early days you know a lot of investors need to have a patient in kind of medium term horizon for their investment, but it does that mean that it's something that everyone should at least be considering and we're already seeing empirical data that it's making its way into the portfolios of investors of all different kinds of mandates.
Not feeling sick, man tests positive for COVID-19 only after contact tracing
"People find contact tracing to be an invasion of their privacy. McComas Denise Whitaker tells us how it worked out Well for one man. There are certainly a lot of criticisms of contact tracing, but Peter Rosen Burger tells me He would not even have gone to get tested. Had it not been for that phone call he received from a contact Tracer. I first introduced you to Rosenberg er back in April, when he was really working hard to avoid getting covert 19 from his wife, Gracie. She has survived decades of health issues, including losing both her legs. Peter's been there every one of those almost 35 years as her full time caregiver. He nursed her through covert 19 which hit greasy really hard, And now that he's got it, he tells me he wouldn't have even known it had it not been for that call from a nurse, telling him he had been in contact with someone who tested positive would not go to the doctor. For what I feel right now. If I didn't know that I had Cove in 19 and I've got all the symptoms of Ah, you know, bad case of being out in the barn moving hay around. I'm glad I know because it gives me a little bit of extra buffer down for people because I don't want to spread the sea buddy. He is now sleeping in the guest room for his 10 days of quarantine. And he's also doing everything he can to try to boost his immunity by drinking lots of extra water on taking supplements.
My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.

Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York has endured ‘21 days of hell’
"But here's a quote from Cuomo in a play the audio I don't read too because I'm looking at it I think it's really interesting he says we're back to where we were twenty one days ago twenty one days of hell but here we are no I I think that's interesting because there's a lot of information out there we talked about it last week and if you missed the episode last week of this coronavirus special you can check it out at W. A. B. C. radio dot com and all of the core of our specials are listed there but we talked about how M. I. T. has suggested that the hot spots in New York City may be directly related to the subway system and I find that interesting because when you go to I don't put a target they let X. amount of people into the store most stores are leading X. amount of people into a store and if they hit that that number you got to wait outside while you're inside six feet apart six feet apart six feet apart right okay but they didn't do that in a subway now you had the mayor who had police you have Cuomo as MTA police of Cuomo who's in charge of the subway system do you think for a second that they could have said let's put some offices they're saying all right we're only letting X. amount of people in on to the platform for the next coming train all right U. ten U. twenty U. hundred whoever it is you guys go and make sure you stay six feet apart and then wait for the next group all right that's good the same way they do it when I want to go by you know Michael your products at the at the Walmart or the target even though they had does it so my thought is why couldn't these guys these geniuses in in Gracie mansion and here in the city what why could they not figure this out
"gracie" Discussed on Cleared Hot
"The next progression of Mount Techniques after we'll try to mount so we must try four same thing anything going on once you're done with almost four Ura Monster Jer. Knowledge of the scope of what Jujitsu entails with about eight hundred techniques. You have a very broad understanding of what this is about. You know all all the letters of the alphabet are perfectly understood. And you're good to go. So then what do you do next? Purple Belt Stripe one through stripe for instead of giving another one hundred ninety techniques per. That's not what it's about anymore. Purple Belts type one through four digs deeply explores deeply the principles that govern the practice of Jujitsu. So it's almost like this is the what's purple belt is the wise. Why are these moves effective? Why do they work the way they do? Why do why do you use this instead of this woman? This situation so all the the roots of these trees are explored. It's like the Prequel but you can't have that discussion unless there's some above ground context some treetrunks to kind of say okay. We kind of know. Here's the forest so you can only discuss the roots when you know where the trees are headed and where the trees exist so that Purple Stripe one to four is entirely driven learning. And we're talking about the principles of Timing Control Leverage manipulation balance double attack all little macro and micro- principles that. Make every move that you use adheres to a set or a combination of principles to make it effective and identifying those with examples anecdotal showing. Here's why I'm so by the time they're done with Purple Stripe one through four. They're able to sit back and go. I totally understand why Ju Jitsu so effective and once you understand the whys of Ju Jitsu. Now only now. Can you start creating new house new possibilities that you were never taught right? How do you arrive to a place as a practitioner? Don't you ever wonder that like? When do you go from being a student to being a Creator? An innovator right someone who becomes a source not just a recipient of Jujitsu but source of Jujitsu. The difference happens once you understand the wise once you understand. Jujitsu on a principle driven level not on a surface technique level. So that's why whites and white to blue learn the basics get beat up blue to purple learn the scope of Jujitsu techniques that. Make It what. It is in the effectiveness. Purple to Brown understand why those techniques work the the fabric with which all of these techniques are constructed and then Brown to black in our curriculum is we want to see you contribute back to Jitsu. You become someone who you`re. You're you're Brown Stripe. One test is it. Can you memorize these moves? It's teach me another principle that I haven't yet identified. Oh interesting you become a source of inspiration through CH- and for Rambo strive to. I want to see another principal and another principal and another principal. So you're going to contribute back to the very art that gave you life before you get your black belt in Gracie Jiu Jitsu. That's how great universities Organiz so we're not trying to create students. Were trying to create wizards of Jujitsu who become contributors and sources of knowledge for anybody. They ever come into contact with because of how they look at. Ju Jitsu not how they absorbed Jitsu Damn. That's a lot to think about. Not only is a lot to think about. Here's what's crazy bro. This is what's wild and this is what we might turn the capture not the camera because it might be offensive to many. We can let me just say this can you? Can you now see how learning to accomplish what I'm proposing? Which sounds ambitious. I'm creating people who because if you think about any of the wizards today who are the contributors? The guys who almost Cana- created branches of their own Jujitsu the the data hers. The the the the Eddie. Bravo's the guys who all did great contributions and there are many others. Everyone who's like a high level black bell who kind of makes them a name for themselves. It's why they kind of have a little branch of the kind of flourish and they they make their own version of it right innovation. Yes but where does that come from? They all have the same roots of the tree. They all trace back to at some point the gracie family or the cousins of the Gracie's or the origin of the whole thing Brazilian Jujitsu back to my grandfather and Carlos so they traced back there somehow but besides just the genetic trace back of the roots who you learned from in your your Lineage besides just the lineage. There's also a technical lineage. Tracing Back to roots of what they all learned they all. Kinda started with the same foundation of Brazilian Jujitsu and these principles that I'm talking about. And then what they did with. Those was different different places. They morph into different things in different variations of Jujitsu based on that person's understanding being so profound that didn't they can create and still adhere to those principles and utilize those principles to create further advancements introduced to that didn't exist before them. But they still all those advancements adhere to great degree those same principles that made the pre the pre predecessors version of possible right so. The principals are timeless. Now what I was GonNa say was this. Can you see now that if that's the ambition of Gracie University right where it starts traces and by the end? You don't just have someone who memorized thousands of moves. You actually have someone who now thinks about Jujitsu in a way where they can be contributor to Ju Jitsu for generations to come how that to be accomplished requires a certain linear approach to even make sense because the white bill who comes in can't have even the Blue Bell isn't ready for the talk about print deep principles of Jujitsu in many ways because they don't have experience there in wrote phase. Still there you go. They're just trying to understand how the arm even breaks right let alone the principles of how getting to the mount was possible. So yes and that's why I'm saying what I'm so excited about. Is this roadmap. That is only now finally being completed. Like we're just about to finish the principal. The cataloging of all those principle driven lessons that I told you about. That's almost done. And once that's done we're done we've completed GRACIE UNIVERSITIES LINEAR curriculum from white to black. And I'm excited to say man. Now we've created kind of an assembly line on which anybody can get on at any point from anywhere in the world. Go down this assembly line. It may take ten years on their own in the middle of a tent out in the middle of nowhere and once they come off the assembly line though. I'm GONNA meet them. If they say to me header. I completed my brown belt stripe for evaluation through Gracie University. I don't need to know anything else. I know everything I need to know about the person standing in front of me about what? They've been through for the last ten years about what they've spent time watching me on camera and my brother he'd own about what they've learned what they've sent in because you can't send him. Brembos strike four-test unless you've done brown boats type three and Brembos try to in one so I already know if you sending this. You did all of these tests so I go man. You're a contributor. Now you're an asset to the jujitsu universe fly grasshopper flight. Go become one and go give back because you have a lot of value to give where you are right now. So anyway is very ambitious very exciting. And it was the goal from the beginning to create a pathway. That wants someone comes off the end of that assembly line. They're freaking marvelous and to see it. Now coming to fruition. Where that's almost about to be done. And here's the ended. The bottom line is once we have repeated successes coming off the assembly line. You know people can say whatever they want. We're creating juicer wizards. And contributors to the art and people who are not only taking from it but giving back and there's nothing someone can say negative about that. Well we'll stop them from saying negative things is true. They may just not have an understanding about what they're saying negative things about. You're just GONNA get choked out by someone who learned online. I never done underestimating people's ability to say negative things about things that your yes. I'm with you. You'll get nine hundred ninety. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety. Nine people are like that's awesome at one dude who has a really high speed in law enforcement law enforcement. I got him. I every single video game so I'm well used to it. That's a man that is a robust undertaking. I'm just even thinking about the time. Required in the infrastructure required to put all that stuff together let alone the linear sequencing of all that right. It's crazy no no play. And here's the thing. Many people have online websites for Jitsu. But what they do is they. Just get a camera. Go into the class that they're teaching. Have the camera film class or like film the technique throw up online right but because there's no linear context of that lesson. The student who knows nothing goes like you like you walk into class as a wipe online. Where do I place this in this whole journey of learning so for me taking that away with was probably one of the best and worst decisions of my life? Best in that. We've created something that exists anywhere else in the world in terms of linear ease of learning curriculum. Worse in that. It took so much more time to do it this way. No I bet to do a properly film directly for the user at home if I can teach a class and have it filmed at the same time two birds one stone because I teach every night anyways Cumbria camera. It would be very easy to do that but to say no. I have to have to allocate different time in my day separate time two to three hours every filming session. No exception me and my brother has to get down script. Lesson have day and make sure that lesson progressively builds off the last sixty lessons. And then just keep adding on and then pull the plug press play have edited just for the home user. Who's going through linearly? It's a whole separate profession whole separate undertaking. And that's where I was like. I thought it would be easier than it was. I thought in my mind I had like three to four years. It's been eleven. It'll probably take you about as much time as it would take somebody to go through the pipeline. Here we are later and it's about rear about accurate what it will take you through the pipeline. Exactly right it all of your years of teaching Jujitsu. What are the biggest mistakes that you see people making? I think that people different phases differ mistakes but for the most part the phase where most people drop off. Let's assume that you know they don't get scared away in the first couple of weeks right but somebody stick around four or five six months seven months eight months a year year and a half right in that one blew but right around the blue belt. Timeframe is where you lose. A lot of students. And I think it's because students don't have effective measures indicators of progress and their definitions of victory are.

"Training hubs in each community. And all you need to become official Gracie Garages Mats and a screen and access to the curriculum and your is listed as a gracie garage at school in the community. There might be seventeen to twenty people who get together three times a week in your garage a train. So now we're combating that lack of training partner consideration. But here's what I'll say to this friends out there who hate us. It's a fact friends out there who hate us because even though you hate me I love you I love you. You're my friend even though you hate me so friends out there who hate us. Here's what I'll say about this. You guys it's a fact that grace the discipline required the humor. The the inborn discipline that is required for someone to learn from a computer monitor right on their own time like really time your schedule allocate in your own house to put it down. Put up a screen and actually watch and then practice with a partner. Coordinate that get together. Those are exceptional human meets agreed exceptionally dedicated exceptionally motivated exceptionally everything and every category. Every person I've met who trains through Gracie University and excels in the process. When meet them I go? Wow your special someone who just doesn't take no for an answer and would not take distance as a concern and you're gonNA learn no matter what category and to be honest that category of people who can learn that long term. I put them in about the five percentile. One out of twenty people that I know are capable of online learning as a true source from Asia's e of here's wild. Those people who become online curriculum highly dedicated progress so effectively so motivated that they ended up going through instructor certification programs and opening certified training centers and becoming the people to open brick and mortar schools. Were then the other ninety five percent who are not as motivated. We'll just kind of get into a room lined up against the wall and then have the one guy who's the fricken hammer say? Yoga is this is what we're going to do today. And they all go okay coach. We'll do that. And they're kind of led by the leader there so it works out perfectly and what I'm trying to say to. You guys is to have no fear because for every one hundred people who goes on a great university and gets enthralled by the beauty of the curriculum the ease of the techniques just the nature of it at ninety five percent. Like this man. This is amazing. But I don't have Matt's I don't have a training partner. I don't have the time and I don't want to do something with my kids are GonNa Bother me. So I'm going to go find a bee. Jj School Gracie or not. They go find any school in their community and the Google Jiu Jitsu Gracie Brazilian in my neighborhood and they show up at. Your guys is schools. Want to hate us and then they say you say hey. How'd you hear about a school? And they say oh. I saw some gracie breakdown on Youtube. I went to Greece University. I saw I love the lessons but now I need to find a school because I can't really learn online. And then you never sent me a thank you letter. They forgot that step. I need you guys to remember that step because you can't throw the hate if you don't throw the love when it actually works in your favor that I introduced someone to Jujitsu you got credit for it. They're your student now. I've nothing to do with it other than the fact that I got him. In your building and Like Choco who recently got to tell them the story who recently a guy came in here and a really cool kid and did his first class and at the end. So how'd you hear about your Jitsu? He's like Jaakko. I'm like I love that man and then so super super cool cat who had his first class and thanks to Jaakko came in here. So I'm not saying oh I got him to Gracie breakdowns. Jaakko got him through a podcast. Sent him here. And I'm throwing appreciation Jaakko. And I. Oh you want Ross able on me and I always say man. Joe Rogan Jaakko. Joe's at the top of the mountain in terms of educating people about Jujitsu. Just say hey you should do Jitsu. His platform is amazing. It's platforms huge. He uses it for good and he doesn't agree really good jobs so for all the People Jo that you've inspired to shake take their first class because of how beautiful you communicate to both in the octagon right there in the fights but also on your podcast day to day. People are starting to Jitsu. Because of Joe Rogan no doubt and I think in a youtube sense like purely like from demonstration on a breakdown sense. I think I've influenced a lot of people with my brother as well helping out you know. Together we've influenced so many people to start Jujitsu ninety nine percent of which we have no idea where they ended up and we've gotten no benefit other than we've got them on the Mat and they're your students so please you guys throw the hate but throw some love right behind. How many participants do you think there are worldwide? Call come on. I've no idea so. I asked John to write because he's tied with tower in a game. And everybody just gets in there like two million. Yeah no I have no idea why sure. It's a waste of time to even speculate. I know that our school has you know. We have a hundred and seventy-five schools. I don't know twenty thirty thousand. Cumulative students there give or take in those schools alone yeah so we have our own little you know. We're making a dent but worldwide all Jayjay. It's every street corner and brothers within five miles of where we sit. There's ten be. Jj Schools Physically fifteen. Maybe maybe twenty five miles. I mean so. Cal was kind of it seems to be the Mecca for the trendsetter. But guess what Wyoming's not far behind Montana's not far behind was just going to say we're the flathead valley. There is there so I trained through. Spg Straight blast gym. There are three of those in the Valley Missoula and there are other schools. Are you guess? So yeah so. They're like pizza parlors now. They're just coming up. It's just happening. So anyways Grace University this online platform has been ridiculous for us. Because it's allowing US first gracie breakdowns we breakdowns people. Go Oh man. This is awesome. When did you guys do your first grade? Five six seven right before the university started. How did YOU Did you stumble across something? You just felt compelled. Esp Dan Hardy. Ufc way back when GSP couldn't admit them then. Our friends from Miami volunteer brothers said Hey Henner he don't you guys you do a video explaining. Why the armed didn't break. People would be intrigued by everyone's like my God. He didn't break his arm. Well how did not break and Dan Hardy's financial data this submission and we did a breakdown and got fifty sixty thousand views than we did a couple more than we did over doom versus fade door when he submitted fate or the favors. I like official loss for by mission. I think I lost ever and We're kind of trying to arm bar in some of these. I think one of these other organizations I think it was strikeforce. Actually caught them. We did a breakdown. I put it up on a Sunday. The fight was on a Saturday and Sunday morning. We try to do them real fast. And then we went to Costa Rica and then three days later. I check my log in and Costa Rica and it had like four hundred thousand views and I was like okay. We hit something. Yeah on your share. We struck a vein. People WanNa know people love and understanding. What's going on? Especially if you're a fan of Emmy it's one thing to say. Oh he got submitted. It's another thing to say. Wait a minute. He did this he did that. And He. You know Bob up and now it's it's not uncommon to get a million or two million views on Conor McGregor. Habib mogomedov breakdown. You get to watch that one. Who's yeah you know late night on that one but the same night? We can't quite happy. It's a big fight will come straight from the house. Lead the family breakdown. So we're committed on that front and Listen. That's how you get average. Mma couch fan to say that stuff is cool are nice. I like how they teach they make sense. And it's I like them. I want to learn from them. And it's far more intellectual. You made that comment earlier to it's far more intellectual than I have the ability to describe bright overwhelmingly intellectual when you're first starting because you get to position like okay. Don't scare them away but yeah it's beautifully intellectual but it teaches you how to so much. You can prioritize. You can play. Make mistakes fail succeed like all that good stuff but it's hard to explain how you'd being crushed so the breakdowns took off and then we're like man. Let's funnel this obviously used. As a primary marketing channel to get people on Gracie University people get on Grace University. The first five six lessons are free on there so you can dabble and see a bunch of sample lessons and then you either say one of two things. I'm going to do this on my own or let me find it. There's a location near me. And then we called certified training centers and these are schools. That have gone through. You know. Pretty robust certification process to learn our curriculum greasy bully proof gracie combative Master Psycho woman empowered. And then they become certified to teach those in their communities and there's four levels of certification blue belts purple belt Brown belt. Black belt in terms of You know the kind of the accolades of the school and then That's it so we have see certified training centers. We have the online channel for those who don't have access to one of those and we're now we're growing like you know twenty thirty new schools a year and That's kind of the business model right now. I have imagined the digital side is helping you guys bridge the gap during what's going on right now as remote learning because that's what I was. GonNa say all the people who are haters. This is the irony of all this. The people who were hating on Gracie University in two thousand age doesn't doesn't ten when I said that you know it certainly is as effective and in some cases more effective than brick and mortar school. Learning the people who headed that. Now one of two things happen either a they also have an online university which many of them do most of them do or be right now while all. Bj schools are being shut down for Corona virus for an unknown period of time for unknown period of time. They are kicking themselves. Saying manner was onto something in two thousand and eight because now even though we don't have classes happening here. All of our students have free online access to the whole curriculum that they're that they're participating in in brick and mortar classes here and what we created a new system to where during this closure period of couple months potentially maybe more when they come back. They're going to be able to demonstrate through a series of verification. Seminars are in how students and students at certified training centers all over the world can demonstrate what they learn while they were out and then if they demonstrate with proficiency the moves they learn they get credit towards their next promotion and like credit towards tangible progress actual attendance credit even though they weren't in the building if they can demonstrate it from what they learn on the videos and practice with their friends and family at home so having the infrastructure in place for the last ten years it's never been more appreciated and necessary and beneficial for us than it is right now as we sit here and it's also being deployed it over one hundred seventy schools around the world where there are also being forced to close and all those schools all of their students get free online access at the same time so everyone else right now. They're trying to film content today to try to put it up in the next week or two or three or four trying to build a makeshift online university. And we've been having this thing built over the last ten years so you said that you guys when you're creating that curriculum you went from a private lesson where you would start and where you would end. What's the first lesson you teach them?.

"Team in our program. Gst doesn't get any attention. We don't talk about it. We don't nobody knows it exists because we're so scared to comment on any video ever. That's one option I said. But here's the deal to whoever I'm dealing with when I do these videos in every single case when we critique a use of force by law enforcement on a video that went public dash cam cellphone otherwise we invite either the people in the video or their training department their defensive tactics instructor of the people in that video to attend the GST Course for Free. So we don't just propose the problems and say you guys suck get. Outta here. Thank you very much. Go onto the next one. We show the problem. We propose a solution and then we invite the irresponsible parties to get the training for free that we provide in that. It's a week long certification. This is not a cheap course. And we're saying if I'M GONNA show the world how they can grow from this you're gonNA to benefit also because you're going to get it for free. Thank you for letting me use this video to help. Educate people about what is necessary. Out there and was craziest. People ought people. Don't see the other side of that but nine times out of ten. They accept the offer so these people who are videos and just through instagram and socialist so amazing now that like within two three days I get an email from the department and and actions are taken whether they want to host of course their department or whether they want to send their top officer instructors to come to the course so it's very beautiful and when I notified the people who have concerns. I tell them that I say. Look the very person in the video that you were concerned about me. Giving my unwarranted opinion. They're accepting our offer to come to tea and they have no quirks about me during the break down and that they're not gonna get that training and then the person goes all right. Well in that case I guess I have no basis basis for complaining and I go. Yeah proof the person I'm critiquing is on your happy and welcomes the critiquing and welcome lesson. Then who are you to say that? I can't give an opinion on this person and I just wanted to enforcement to know that it. It's it's blue team for life like it's so major like as a kid growing up. I didn't really have a choice in the Gracie family in terms of profession. But I wanted if I wasn't gonNA be Jitsu for life and I wasn't able to teach in. I wasn't able to do this one hundred percent and I had the chewed out so it was like navy seal or police officer. That was it you made. You made the right call so outrageous you guys like for me. The excitement of interacting with people the excitement of the unknown challenges that exist right like for me. It's solving problems and teamwork collaboration. What makes me tick right so for Law Enforcement Everyday Interactions? It's so exciting. But it's also challenging so the fact that you guys do this every day and People who get up suit up and go to work and basically run to the problem so that other people can be protected from the problems in the and the dangers of society. It's it's the most commendable thing imaginable military international front and then law enforcement on the domestic front. The two of the most noble professions. I can imagine so to be in a family where we actually just kind of by the natural progression of a and Brazilian Jujitsu which my family had a lot to do with coming to America. And the timing just working. I'm sitting right now in this office. Spearheading GST's growth around the world. And it's just remarkable. It's one of the greatest honors of my everyday. Existence is to be involved a program that is affecting so many law enforcement professionals and the feedback. We get in the coins. And it's it's one of the most meaningful roles of Gracie University Right. Now is that role in which we're helping further law enforcement training standards across the country and one department at a time. So thank you guys and know that. Never those videos are done with anything other than hey. We have to acknowledge the problem. In order to work towards the solution and if viral videos are the ways to educate unknown officers and departments around the country that this is necessary and training exists. And it's possible and you can do it better. You don't have to be stuck in nineteen eighties. Defensive Tactics Mindset and Taser. Firearm pepper spray. Doesn't work there. You read a run. It's not the case. It's not the case it can be done better and we are. It's battle though because what you said which is four hours a year. The weisser year is choice years exceptional. That's not normal. That's where you're from four hours a year sometimes every other year on defensive tactics and they say. Hey here's this training module after your hours. You're good to go back in service back on the streets and see next year. That'S THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. We're running right now. It's not even like the general acceptance that this training is necessary. It's the command staff fighting between. Do we budget the time for this training or do we just get this new equipment or do we get them on the streets. It's all money for them. It's all balanced budget. So that's the uphill battle. We're up again. I think that every single video that comes out every Chicago like video where you go man. That's what we're putting out to protect and enforce the law and protects communities around this country. They need better training. So it's actually a good thing that these are now. Being visible policing has always been the same right. Cops are not any worse. Pre prepared to physically go hands on with the suspect today than they were twenty years ago. They're the same people who don't know anything don't know anything. Still the only difference is now. Excuse me now. It's on camera now. The world is watching every single move you make and there are some negative consequences of that. 'cause they'll second guess themselves when they shouldn't for example in a situation so I'm not all for or all against I recognize the pros and cons like you like you insinuated. But one thing is for sure. They're on camera whether they want to be or not. It's all being recorded now and it's not good enough just to accomplish the objective of neutralizing. The suspect is not good enough anymore. You have to also do it in a way. That is camera friendly and acceptable in the communities. Mind as acceptable use of force on the communities acceptable force continuing not just the department. The community has their own acceptable force continuum whereas the department has the use of force continuum. Sodas the community. And when those don't match when the department justifies this level of force in the community for the same interaction only justifies this level of force. That's called the acceptable force gap. That gap is the is the directly correlated with the level of dissension between the community. And the department. And that's where you get the riots and all of that so if you're closing that gap through better training and education and good. Pr and community relations where you get them to be more team police officers then you close the gap and anything you do. They go no no. We have good cops here. It was necessary to do and the cops are no no. We don't gotTA album in the back of the neck. We can control and wait till backup gets here because we've been taught those tactics closed. The gap is our only objective. That was one of the things the main things they were talking about with the officers in that training. I think it was less than two months ago. We did it. They're like listen. Get on top. Stay on top if you have to wait for backup. That's the best thing you don't have to do anything. And that's what they have to understand. But when you know. The blood is pumping and the friends pumping and excitement. And there's a threat beneath you and you have a tool belt full of tools right. That can be used against you or for you. Yeah that's the biggest challenge. Is You bring a gun into a fight. It's everyone's gun. Yeah you have your retention mechanisms but for the most part it's not a single. One of those is foolproof. I know if they get the right angle. It can take you out just as much as you would and you have so many tools so or if they're familiar with that particular type of holster they can get it out. Look AT HE SPLIT. Yeah. They're not rocket science. Either right they have to be simple enough to be used quickly and effectively. So I think what you said is incredibly fair. Though you even absent the before and after of those videos you and your brother your intimately familiar with the engagement enhanced like you have every background bona feeds to be able to speak articulately and with authority about what's happening in those videos for sure and I think the more that can see the light of day the better. It'd be better for the departments speaking of that. How did you guys start interfacing with police? I mean these coins obviously came time. No Kidding Yeah Rodney King Nineties. Did you reach out to them or did they come to? Lapd reach out to a local expert panel started. You start putting together a expert panel of martial artists to help revamp their defensive tactics after the incident after the La Riots. My Dad was on the panel as I was. I think it will go horses well and that was the beginning of the beginning like straight up. Lapd pursuing better tactics right here right here in our backyard and then lapd is one of the more progressive when it comes to training and largest and largest so they kind of you know our Trendsetters in that sense and then the initial program was called Grapple Gracie resisting attack procedures for law enforcement then That was about fifteen years right. Ninety three ninety four ninety five all the way until about two thousand sorry Let's say I would say two thousand three thousand seven thousand six thousand seven? That program flourished twelve thirteen years and then throughout that time we were pretty much just teaching Jiu Jitsu to law enforcement and then my brother and I kind of took over father retired. My uncle hoist moved onto other things and we kind of took over the family business. And we started dabbling into leading those courses. Well we got so much feedback from the from the users that law enforcement officers saying hey hinder. But what about this? What about that? And what if you grabs my gun here and we really started listening? Not just teaching but like hey guys what do you think about how we're teaching you? Give me some feedback as to the real law enforcement. Applicability what are you seeing? Let's be experts. You guys are the experts in your jobs. Tell us what you're experiencing and good or bad on these techniques and so we started really opening up feedback instead of making it a one way channel once we started getting feedback about Yo here. This is great but if you are gun right here this move is useless so we started modifying every technique in the grapple program and it was a complete overhaul at that point a new program was born called Gracie survival tactics. Gmt which is currently the name and now the way we communicate. It isn't the beginning. We talked through two cops now. He teaches you through four cups. Totally different language to the point. Where today you teach? We see Jesse Course. Nine Times out of ten. The participants don't even know. We're not full-time police officers. Because a the language we use using their vernacular and be the actual techniques are sold law enforcement respectful so law enforcement consider it for their contingencies in their realities when terms of weapon attention arresting procedures all the aspects the duty belt that cumbersome vest that they wear boots so we factor in all the variables so well they go man. These guys thought of everything in our world and they're not even from our world. That's one of the biggest things that I think graded against me saying I got some quirky training. It just like you're demonstrating this slick. I look like a Goddamn spaceman walking around with your kid. I'm and I have 'em four that I need to handle and I got a sledgehammer on my back or a quickie on my back. What do you talk like?.

"Percents off when you check out and that's it for sponsors my guest today is Henner Gracie and I actually don't know how to accurately describe him. I WanNa do it justice and I don't want to leave anything out so what I'll say is is if you are familiar at all with Brazilian Jujitsu. I would even say at this point mixed martial arts. You're going to recognize the name if you're familiar with the USC that was his family that started the USC Brazilian Jujitsu when you talk a lot about lineage or hear people talking a lot about lineage. The tree will go back to the Gracie family so header is a member of the Gracie family and he is a fourth degree black belt a chief instructor at the Gracie University which is an amazing facility in Torrance. If you have the ability to go check it out. You absolutely need to. He's the CO creator of the Gracie University Online Curriculum with his brother here on and in addition to that he also has created an apparent one. Quick Flip Apparel and like I said I was so stoked to give the opportunity to sit down and talk with him. I am I think coming up on one thousand nine months into my own journey into Jujitsu and to have the ability to sit down and talk with somebody so steeped in the knowledge in the history and the culture was amazing. But he is a very articulate and well-spoken man so I'm going to let him speak for himself episode number one twenty-one with Hennig racy enjoy smoke smoke smoke. I'm looking at danger. Close now thank you everybody for taking the time to turn in to tune in I'm here with Henner Gracie a legendary jujitsu figure in my mind and in many people's minds not in my mind though. That's a good sign my grandfather. Is You know what I'm saying. Look who my father but father my uncles the legends. So I'm just trying to put a little a little a little a little nick in the tree of like you I was here. That's what I'm trying to do that. What you just said to me is a very good sign. Because I've met many people who would say? Oh I am a big deal and the people who start off like that I I start to worry. The people who think that they're still on a path and there is no state and they're enjoying the journey. That's okay in this family. You won't find a lot of people who look at it that way because the sooner you think you're a big deal someone's GonNa put you in your place. And I think that's true for Jujitsu not just the Gracie family right. So some of the most humble most you know respectful people you'll ever meet are the baddest people you'll ever meet. You know that coming from what your background And that's for sure true in Jujitsu and You know the people who are most capable of engaging in winning fight are the least likely wants get into one and I think that's all tied together. I was talking about that last week with my coach and I had asked him if he thought it would be valuable important at least for adult males to experience touch violence at some point. I think it's critical because a like you mentioned the more you've been around violence the more you try to get away from violence. I don't need any part of this because you can win and still end up in the hospital and losing. There's just so many things in between and it's basically not John Wick is what I'm getting too. You're not throwing people through glass windows and fighting off fifty people it's I've been very few violent encounters in my life and I'll do everything I possibly can to avoid them and people ask me why I wanted to learn Jujitsu like oh you WANNA learn it if I was like no no no I get it out on the mats I have a great awesome time and now it's like hey you're the drunk. I at the BAR UP BY AROUND. I'll be over here and then I'm just GONNA leave. I have now that I have an understanding of a better understand. What's possible not only that and and once you started training to Jitsu you became very aware of how little you actually knew so me you become really aware of how much you don't know when you start going down that rabbit hole of learning techniques and. I think that for many people. That's a very beneficial thing because like Joe often says Rogan. He'll say you know. I think the average guy overestimates is fighting capability by what nine hundred thousand percent right like in terms of what they think? And the second you go your first second third class you go. Dang I know nothing I know zero and every class you go to as crazy as you get better indrajit sue you realize even further how much you don't know. Do you still feel like that. I think yeah good question. There is. There is a point. I was talking about this in a group class the other day and it does come a point right your very first class. I get on top. You ask you how you had to get out for your life. You're not getting out and you leave that class able to get out you get excited. You're like oh my gosh I WANNA learn more. You go the next day and then you three or four days and you're like okay. There's ten moves. I just learned that I really could learn those a lot sooner my life and I wish I had them a lot sooner. But you think it's just ten moves that you didn't know and then you train for six months a year or two years. Finally you go man. Imagine if I didn't have the skill set that I'm now investing in right but there does come a point. I think like deep deep dark blue like purple mid to purple even into Brown. Where you go all right. You know like once you once you've touched enough in Jujitsu where you've been to every chapter into to the mount you understand the guard you understand you understand the scope of each position you don't. You're not the master any of them but you understand. All of what is entailed in each position. That's when you sit back and go all right. I don't know it all but I'm very comfortable compared to where I was and to compare it to any person on the planet who's not investing the time that I'm investing so in that sense you know I feel like there's always more to learn but I certainly know what my capabilities are. And I very well know what the deficiencies are in any person who has an invested in this skill set. It's the joke and I mean I see it every day. We have a brand new walk in there. Just a hundred percent clueless and People simply don't know what they don't know you'll probably get a kick out of how and why I started doing Jujitsu and ties directly into your first experience being relatively eye-opening so as in the military for seventeen years I carried a gun as my primary weapon system the entire time. It was just part of the tool belt pistol rifle and I look back at what they taught us. It was almost all based in prisoner handling and we got some what I would describe as very quirky hands on training in the early two thousands that even in the moment I was like I don't I don't know anything but I suspect what you are. Teaching me is not good. Feel you and who it was off line because I don't want to air the guy out because I have no idea what he's up to but the most common or very common narrative inside of the community when I was in his. I don't need to put my hands on people because I have guns and I hear that And I have heard that from law enforcement and day today and when I was involved in I was like. Yeah that makes you know. I don't I don't need to put my hands on anybody so we moved to Montana almost three years ago and I was on Joe's podcast right before we moved up there and I get a message like hey I'm a local law enforcement guy her John Joe's podcast. We should link up and my theory is immediately. Get to know law enforcement where you live. Because it's going to be better off for you. Things go sideways. Get to know the people in charge. I met him and for almost a year. He would not shut up about Jujitsu. He had started like two years before a four stripe white belt memorized every time. We may need to start doing to Jitsu and it was so overwhelming. I'm like I'm not doing it. I refuse to do to now. He's doing it to all you guys go ahead so and then there was one day we were downstairs at my house and we had been we had been doing for a little bit and he was he told me and he denies this to this day. He said if you start tomorrow you will never tap me out. I was like when is the elbow and he was like trying to do standing head north. I'm trying I'm totally messing with me. I'll go so I go to my first class and have that experience of you know in my head and Mike Okay. I'm six foot tall two. Oh Five Up In some of right of situations in my life like I'll be fine and one of the instructors at the gym is a female black belt. She's been blackballed. Now I think for seven years maybe and side control bottom and I'm sitting there. I'm like if I wanted to get out of this in my head is what I'm telling myself I'm good. I want to get out of this. I can if I really you try it and shoved right so i. I tried the technique that that didn't work out for me. I'm still side control bottom and then I started like well now. It's time for the bench. Press mussels come in a letter go. Yeah I'M GONNA I'm GonNa let it rip in. I'm still inside control bottom and it was actually for me if it had been any other result than that. I don't think I would have liked it as much but it was to me a reinforcement of how legitimate and valid the skill set was. I could not. I'm like what's going on out way you. I'm stronger from a contract out. Potential didn't you are but the only reason that I'm going to get up from this if you let me and then things haven't gone well for that guy since that time because I go two hours a day if not double down and then he forgot about you along time ago and you're like still head hunting for this guy. He's become one of my best friends. And we have some pretty high horsepower roles and most days and we talk about he to this day denies that he said that even if I did. I'm glad that you're here. And he Got There because a guy. And he's a sheriff guy in sheriff's department had hey horrendous experience and where we live the flathead valley the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi Far North West Montana average response time you can imagine on the fringes of their area. Twenty thirty minutes probably wouldn't be unheard of and the guy who got him into it who just got his brown belt less than a month ago. I think had a horrendous hands on near fight to the death experience in snow where the first thing that happened was like his radio got ripped off and it was a there was a gun in the car and I believe the individual had a warrant but it escalated quickly and he said he was fighting as hard as he could and then finally just barely heard this iron starting to come and barely made it through that.
Why iLes New Album, Almadura, Is Both Departure and Evolution from Calle 13
"That was master from Elise Laura for the Puerto Rican singer and songwriter. Music has long been a family affair as a teen. Her brothers recruited her to become a member of guide. The dossier together they've won. Three grammys and twenty-one Latin grammys away has spent the past few years reintroducing herself as a solo artist and along with resident her brother and bad bunny co and performed a few lundahl. Scoot Yose the song that became the anthem. Puerto Rico's protests. Listening to Alamo Laura. It is clear that La like the island. She loves is recognizing the dots of her own strength. Welcome to New York City. Thank you good to see you and your hotel room. Thank you for making this work. I appreciate your your released. A motor prior to the protests. Ousting the governor your lyrics I saw in countless protest signs. My friend ANA lives on the island and she calls among Laura a premonition. Ooh I heard that little Very Super Gracie for me. Because maybe the only thing I can think of is like when you wish something so bad and then suddenly becomes reality. I think that might be what happened. Because I'm I've always had this frustration. Not only about a colonial status and how we see things but the thing that froze therese me the most is when I I start seeing the people thinking that they're not enough that they are not a capable of doing anything that we need dependency and for me. That's not part of our essence and I can see so much more From the three. Can People that what we see ourselves and for me. That was my biggest frustration. And what made me write this songs? Did you always see the islands relationship to the US that way or did you have an a Ha moment? I've always seen it because thanks to my family like we all share assange the same ideals and and I remember having that teenage moment of questioning myself if I actually believed in independence or if it was just because my family believes in it and I remember having that moment and realizing that yes I do believe in independence and I little by little. I've been appreciating more who we are what we have and even though Puerto Rico has been a colony for so long our identity still remains and that is something that we should recognize and wonder why does our identity still remains. And that's maybe has to do with the moment. We are leaving now. Sharpening the knives became the anthem of the protest. How to come together? Well I suddenly received a call from my brother that they were just doing this song. I mean it was almost like one day to another and they told me to write the chorus. He just send me the beats that were made through. I had an idea about like what it was going to be about because we were all very angry about the whole situation. But I didn't hear what my brother road or by Bonnie and neither my brother I mean we were all like on our own writing what we were feeling. But since we're Puerto Ricans. I think we were sharing that same anger and we were fears. You know with everything that was going on and we just expressed our cells in different ways. And that's how it all came together and They just told me about the the knives concept so I I just like road what I felt and and the melody and everything but he was like very from the heart. What did it then feel like to listen to that song? Play in the streets. In that moment it was amazing. Especially because the people just knew the Holy Rick's like did they after so are the same day. I don't remember but it was crazy. But at empowering you know I mean Puerto Rico must have a lot of political songs. But we don't know about them so much and I think in that moment we were just like seeking for something that we could and
Test Kitchen Manager Gaby Melian on Empanadas
"Welcome back to the PODCAST. Thank you so much excited. I'm you know what I am. I'm super hungry. I've never been so hungry for cast. I'm looking at these glistening crispy. Golden Brown empanadas is in the middle of the table. And I can get one you of course different once again tell you I. A couple of these have A little bit of sugar got like my grandmother used to put my like. I duNNo. She needed for us so it gives it an extra layer of sweetness and then I read a couple of a couple of people helped me through the ripple. Yeah that's the way you crimp it To show the Francis sometimes they do that depending on the field. Lean gene. You know when you go to the stores they have different ways of closing them. So you know if it's chicken and beef and cheese of whatever pressure beating one two the only one but now I'm talking about my mouth twelve. It's all right. That's what I told everyone. Adam wants to chew on the micro comment or no no. No I mean come on. Everyone does okay. You've done chew videos for us. WE WANNA one with Bradley. Only at your first video ever Dow one was my father's. There's time in front of a Combo being part of the video. Yes we'll read. What was that like? I was really nervous during seem nervous. No I know but I thought it was going to lose my voice Because when I get emotionally I lose my voice and you know the difference and I was just trying to talk and let's talk about that so brad is I'm GonNa say six foot four Gabby is what are you short of one. Actually my past five to what are you. What are you barefoot? Five five okay right. But I'm shrinking but thinking that we all are but brad does that thing where you kind of like spreads his his legs out and he kind of gets a low on the counter because you know can be the same kind of way was he. Did the video. Was it easier than you thought it would be in terms of doing doing it or it was fun I was. I was hard to follow him. You never know what to expect to him but it was fun and I feel like I I was able to talk about. The empanadas and people are super excited in Argentina that I actually was representing so I think it went. Well did you get it. Comments from people in Argentina. Oh yeah yeah from. I add From South America in general or over specially from Argentina. Some of them were like oh well in my town. We don't make them like these. Because inside Argentina. We have different types of bananas. We have like the ones from the north. They wants from the south of the center. That's where I'm from one side is so these are called for ten years because if you're born in one side is your potential from from the port of so you know we are very opinionated people you know I would Argentina's in general we are like. Yeah no I do it this way. Do it that way. Some people is because if you need like racing's or not and some people say oh these gusty and it has all leaves but for me Dania. Has You're going for the second one people aboard. He's having the second one. I make them kind of a small. So let's start with the ones on the plate now. which is the first video of you and Brad from his? It's alive series. This is a ground beef. EMPANADA beef typical tenure. You have raisins in Maher racing's or leaves on our lips the ground beef of obviously grabbers on yawns and then in you'll have oregon o q mean salt pepper. A tiny bit of sugar a little bit of public for Koehler. That's what makes that juicing using US and then I put a hint of Cayenne pepper for heat because I hear people tend to like hear a little more. We're not really into hot spicy spicy. I think it's nice to have a little bit a little sugar just a balanced. Yeah okay so in that first video the what I noticed right away was you made me feel okay about not making my own dough. Oh no totally I mean empanadas reveille eaten in. Let's say typical family probably might WANNA say once a week maybe every other week. But he's something that you get together with friends and you order out. We have great places that sell. NPR's and they deliver. There are some places that they do. Only empanadas can niqab any flavor in the world. You can imagine and in other places a habit Sonnen Pinellas so you either order or you make your own so people people are like no within their friends for their feeling but you will not find anybody that is going to make Bacon Bananas making their own doll. Because he's such a long process. It's not even worth twenty minutes later. Everybody item so we have really good a star Bought doll that it comes already pre pack and we use that. I mean if someone tells you that making their own doll deadline I think this take this impression. Like in Italy for instance there's a ton of Italians in Argentina that everyone makes own pasta scratch every night and this is not the case. No no no no we have also with with really good. Pass the places that you go buy. Fresh passed away the Kilo- All Dogs we do a my rather is makes the best pizza pizza. People make at home on Saturday nights. Yeah the guys make beats a home. Friday nice nice very common. You all do some house. And they make the you know don't beat Sally Gracie B. of the best pizza all right. So I WANNA make empanadas at home. What sort of dough should I buy? Whichever using if I'm not making my own these is when he's gone he's gone on? It's like you can buy it in any supermarket. Basically actually when when I publish which member be on February of two thousand seventeen one of the things that Rick Martinez was sculpting with was to fact checked. You know like find out if you can really really find these doll everywhere and it is. It's really easy available. You can even know that it on Amazon. What doty's does it? It's called Empanada or it says in English turnovers doll right. No I see them watching my Guy Jones happy so be any Spanish local local market if you live in a neighborhood that some sort of Latino community I'm sure they're having go yeah though They have different ones. They have some for Frayne gene and they have Colombian door that is completely different. Because he's make with Like sort of like cornmeal completely different because those refrain gene so these one is actually at says For BANARAS for waking I need it comes from Uruguay. Actually it comes. They'll comes from European Goya packages here in New Jersey near my house. All right so but if you don't have these you've done us any puff pastry and caroline can circles rounds. And that's it. Because he's very similar to puff pastry so for this one. For the filling you were browning. The ground beef seasoning thing it and then you took out the ground beef from the pot and then you put the onus on the papers. That's one way of doing it. I think when we publish the recipe we the first on and a and then we moved them out. You can either either either way for me. It's faster to do the one part and the meeting. Another the reason why I do it that way because I used to make three hundred hundred panels every weekend when I was selling them. Okay we're GONNA get to that first. Let's get to the ground beef. Onions and red peppers seasoning seasoning cumin sake and releases all these juice and makes it sweat. That's the flavor you're going for. You cut out rounds with a pastry cutter or news. Come already already come on. We got anything and they come with these little plastic in between doing so. They don't get stuck one way or the other see. That's what I noticed. I noticed when you took the felling but first of all you want a cool the feeling feeling you can even freeze the feeling. My mother used to freeze the feeling abortions. And then it's much better because when you're baking it Y- releases all that water all the Jews even better. Yeah so you were using like a little like ice cream scoops because I like to measure you know. I don't want one every Empanada have the same amount. I'm also so far of not putting your leaps keeps anti-lien so I wanted on a line like in a restaurant. Is that continuing more. We're GONNA get me angry letters but no no no yes GSA anyways you. You've got your feeling with the raisins onions this nap but the olive separate the Reagan half. Yeah and then I make sure everything Pinella has. That's the League Asian. Sorry people I'm saying to myself. I make sure that everybody gets two halves of only because the worst by will be like if if he does someone Oh inputting olives a panel and then they bite on it and he's gone so when you're feeling is done you can actually don see anymore. Where Olives went you know so I was carefully? Put two halves of olive anytime panella before I closed them. So you fold them over with this little. Okay Yeah just to fill me in then you you pinch them shot. And then the big question between you and Brad on the video of it's alive. Was You crimp them with the four or you do the fancy thing that you do right well. Criminal with the fork makes them look bigger. So here's the C- could people when I was selling them. I was using the fork. Not only because it was fluster and get somebody to tell me that was my mother on. They look bigger so you can judge they all right. People don't don't lie. When he stood cream they feel like they're eating a lot of doll? I love it personally. What's the word again ripple Julia Gay how responding back I E? BU ALGAE E rebelled. Would you so you so it's like you're it's almost like a looks like a little rope. You're sort of twisting at unto itself so you had a nice nice braided exterior exterior. It's super pretty. I know and I can do really quick and the story goes these about anyone I was aid. I don't remember much but we're GonNa have a fourth God. I know they're tiny tiny people he's not even know overeating When I was eight my grandmother who could never actually cramp really pretty really? She used to do the fork because it was faster. You know you're making three four thousand in Pinellas. She asked me to help her because I was always in the kitchen with her and pardon me I started. You know I started twisted Empanada crimping like that during the report and she almost cry because I was doing it exact same way her mother that she could never learn it well and I met my grandmother when I was one and then she dies or she couldn't have possibly taught me on so I guess it wasn't my jeans

The first thing I want to ask is the main thing that I think separates you from other pro euchre's is that you play a hop Ukulele. Yes can you describe the instrument for us and tell us why you chose it. Yeah so it's If part of it is just just like a normal ukulele sewed with a yeah does normally but has an extra arm and this extra arm has for Bass Harp strings And so they're like other Harvey glibly. Sometimes they have two strings three strings. I've seen ones with six strings as before but mine on the House floor. But they're they're drone string so they only play one note each and there's no their no frets on them so you have to. You have to kind kind of choose the the four notes that you want to be able to pluck with it in a dream world I would have one with You know twelve harp strings things but I don't I haven't had anybody make me win yet. So maybe someday but you can kind of you know if you're playing. I mean it's I tend to get the most common tuning that I keep on. Those strings is F. A. C. N. D. but I definitely adjust them depending on song song and I don't like to adjusting too much during his show because it can just as you know there there can be a little difficult to tune in the tempermental yet. Temperamental exactly so that. I prefer not to waste too much time doing that. But I have these little pieces of ivory that I'll stick under under them to sort of move up a half step if I want to as well on which works a little better in a live show setting but anyway yeah. They're they're they're harp strings through bass as harp strings. So they're quite low end. It's nice.

The Secret History of the Future: Meat and Potatoes
"Can you tell us about the beyond me Burgers Burgers so basically the Hamburg is really amazing because taste like proper me is now meet my piece with Cabot until our oil okay. I'M GONNA try one of those. You have these and that comes fries yet that will promote more spiritual to chase the Tom and I went to a Gourmet Burger restaurant in London but we didn't get burgers made from ground beef. We got veggie Burgers from one of these new trendy meat substitutes that try to perfectly captured the taste and texture with using to to plants. We give all right. What do you think visually assess? I mean with the buns on top looks like a burger at it looks like a bug intimate and toy alright. Are you ready to take a bike and that's pretty good. It's pretty satisfying. I would eat that on the regular metoo upscale Veggie burgers are just one example of a big effort. That's going gas gas emissions. emissions. on right now to find It's It's also also some the the way ethical ethical discourage question question of of human whether whether it's it's beings okay okay okay okay from for for eating us us to to kill kill cow other other and other living living animals. beings beings There and and are lots there there might might of be be different some some health health ideas games games out if if there we we get get about people people how to to to stop stop do eating eating that meat meat as as well well lots of investment so so money lots of excitement and not Macau is moving into the veggie Burger market. We've been we'll be commercially viable. A whole bunch of reasons. Why getting rid of meat is an attractive idea idea? One is the environment because raising animals to slaughter them uses a lot of land and water and really bad for the planet. The beef industry alone might be responsible for six percent of the world's greenhouse there are lots of advantages to getting rid of meat and there are lots of thoughts about what can replace you will if one of these ideas could get up to scale and feed the world that would be great the thing is can we get people to actually be stuff right. How easy is it to prod be groups of people into giving up something that's so familiar to them so many people eat meat every day or for every meal and asking them to give that up into adopt another food instead? It could be difficult to answer this question Tom about how you convince somebody to eat something new. I actually don't want to focus on the veggie Burger. That's on one side of our played here. I actually want us to talk about the thing on the other half of our plate. which is these French fries or rather? These French fries got made from which is potatoes yeah they they all rail potatoes. I hope they're real potatoes. I guess we'll to find out when we take a bite. Good fries yeah from sleep. I'm so Stevenson from the economist. I'm Thomas added. Welcome to secret history of the future. quite quite common common in in Europe. Europe. <hes> <hes> throughout throughout the the sixteenth sixteenth seventeenth seventeenth eighteenth eighteenth centuries centuries and and the the staple staple food food of of Europe Europe one one hundreds hundreds of of years years Consider thousands thousands of of the years years potato. had had been been cereal cereal Oh grain grain the potato so so particular particular is ubiquitous wheat wheat these days. oats oats You've got French fries. Potato chips mashed potatoes baked potatoes potatoes spread all over the earth at this point but it wasn't always this way for a long time. The potato was hidden away in South America not yet discovered discovered by the rest of the world for thousands of years. Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you

UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win
"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..
