Cyber conflict between Ukraine and Russia

"Security firm proof point this morning released a study of chinese people's liberation army threat actor ta four thirteen. That's deployed a militias fire. Fox browser extension fryer fox in a surveillance campaign directed against tibetans. Ta four thirteen has also used scan box and support your malware in its operation so far this year the units targets include tibetan groups both domestic and in tibetan diaspora proof point assesses ta four thirteen tool said as limited but quite effective against dissident communities. Which after all have what proof point aptly calls a low barrier to compromise the campaign also suggests a shift to more open source tools on the part of the p. l. a. ukraine's national security and defense counsel has accused moscow of compromising a ukrainian government file sharing system the system of electronic interaction of executive bodies zd net thinks. The group responsible is gamero. Don a group widely regarded as a proxy for russian intelligence services. Kamera don has certainly been active against ukrainian targets in the past. But it's an odd duck while often thought of as an advanced persistent threat that is a government. Run operation in some respects. It doesn't really act like a government agency or even a straight up contractor like iran's mob group for one thing gamero don doesn't restrict it's targeting the way government operation normally would nor is it entirely indiscriminate in the way the lower end criminal gangs tend to be for all that gamero. Don is both noisy and aggressive. Research by cisco's talos group suggests that gamero don is also a mercenary player in the criminal. Criminal market talos wrote in. Its recent report on maradonna quote. We should consider the possibility of this. Not being an ap t at all rather being a group that provides services for other ap teas while doing its own attacks on other regions and quote so Kind of contractor perhaps a criminal organization that hires its services out to intelligence services but that also does business with other criminals while its principal state sponsor by general agreement russia turns a blind eye so gamero don is one of the most active and undeterred actors in the threat landscape it does the work of an ap t but it uses a cybercriminals style. It's worth noting that the operation the ns dc describes seems to be a software supply chain compromise as an s. d. c. tweeted. The attack belongs to the so-called supply chain attacks methods in means of carrying out this cyberattack allow to connect it with one of russia's hackers spy groups this is therefore a different matter entirely from the distributed denial of service attacks ukraine complained of at the beginning of the week the de dos attack targeted. Both the national security and council and the sba you security service bleeping. Computer reports and ukrainian authorities did claim that the attack had its origins in russia in as they put it russian traffic networks. The ns dc describes the diaz thusly vulnerable government web servers are infected with virus that covertly makes them part of a button. It used for de dos attacks on other resources at the same time. Security systems of internet providers identify compromised web servers as a source of attacks and begin to block their work by automatically blacklisting them. Thus even after the end of the de dos fix the attacked websites remain inaccessible to users and quote. But it seems that this denial of service harassment was probably the work of the criminal. Gang thought to be retaliating for the arrest of three of its members by the cranium. Participants in a big bilateral franco ukrainian law enforcement sweep alleged members of gregor. We should of course say allegedly engaged in criminal activity. These particular alleged. Hoods seem to have belonged to a gregor's ransomware sub gang french authorities in particular had blood in there is because as france entire reports. A gregor was allegedly implicated in ransomware attacks against hospitals. So paris in kiev. Good hunting. go get him.

It's another entry into the ransomware as a service market whose operators hawkins in both russophone an anglophone criminal the criminal markets. It uses the familiar attack. Vectors common in the ransomware space phishing emails of course but also exploitation of compromised accounts index has gained through unpacked. Systems with known vulnerabilities. Babba criminal customers seem so far to be most interested in hitting victims in the transportation healthcare plastics electronics and agriculture sectors. Their activity has extended to a number of geographical regions and the malware doesn't use the sorts of local language checks often employed to keep the operators out of water in countries whose legal systems tend to be vigilant and unforgiving mcafee's notes on abbott.

A junta shuts down a nations data networks

"On saturday. Myanmar's ministry of transport and communications directed that all mobile operators serving the country blocked the nation's data network voice and sms. services will remain available tech crunch reports. The general interdiction of data services follows earlier decisions by the country's new military government to block. I facebook and instagram and twitter. The ruling junta has sought to tamp down opportunities for mobilization of dissent and opposition since it took power in a coup last month the grey zone podcast yesterday featured an interview with g h q director jeremy fleming and general sir patrick sanders head of the. Uk's strategic command also responsible for military cyber operations in which they described britain cyber operations against isis british cyber forces disrupted the terrorist groups drone operations denied their operators mobile service and interfered with online propaganda. The campaign by britain's national cyber forces most active in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen is sky. News says the. Uk's only publicly avowed offensive cyber operation to date the counter propaganda influence. Operation is in some ways the most interesting intrusive of the efforts fleming is quoted as saying we prevented their propaganda both through physical actions on the battlefield but also remotely getting to their servers getting to the places. They stored their material and quote the intrusion into isis networks extended to locking isis members. Out of accounts deleting or altering the group's information and taking down online posts and videos general sanders said quote. We wanted to ensure that when they tried to coordinate attacks on our forces their devices didn't work that they couldn't trust the orders that were coming to them their seniors and quote. He added that. Deception and misdirection were important ways of degrading isis combat power tactically british cyber operators said to have been working closely with allies including the us were able to block isis commanders orders from reaching subordinates. And we're also able to misdirect isis forces on the ground. In some cases sending their units into kill zones. It was general. Sanders explained a combined arms multi domain effort. The cyber operations didn't stand on their own. He said quote we wanted to deceive them and to misdirect them to make them less. Effective less cohesive and sap them morale. But you can't just do that in cyberspace. You have to coordinate and integrate that with activities that are going on on the ground whether it's from our own forces special forces and others and quote former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. Chris crabs drew some press attention over the weekend with an interview. He gave the financial times the headline in the media outlet. Silicon is representative quote ex. Us cyber boss calls for military strikes on ransomware. Hackers it says which suggests a brace of thomas hawks prancing downtown to hit a gregor extortionists in their parents or maybe pre dawn vertical insertion of a ranger battalion to put paid to the ragnar locker gang in whatever tacky cybercafe. They're using but a close reading or actually a pretty casual reading of krebs remarks indicates that he's pretty much closer in his thinking to ghg cues fleming than he is to say. Curtis lemay or george patton. His point is that ransomware is sufficiently destructive and costly to make it worth governments wild to actively disrupt the gangs operations military cyber units like us cyber command. The uk's national cyber force have disruptive capabilities law enforcement organizations don't and it might be useful to think about how they might be used if at all there may be decisive legal objections to doing so on the other hand. There might be some legal models under which that kind of action might be legitimately organized. What if ransomware actors could be treated like pirates for example new post reports that kaspersky has discerned new activity by the crew using the silent fade. Malware silent fade is an online ad fraud operation that kaspersky has observed resurgent against victims in asia and europe. They'll be worth watching. The silent fade. Gang is thought to have been responsible for some four million dollars in fraud against facebook users. Twenty nineteen security firm checkpoints updates on iranian cyber threat actors domestic kitten and infield warns that both groups remain active mostly against dissident targets. Checkpoint calls them advanced and rights that they have a lot in common quote. Both groups have conducted long cyber attacks and intrusive surveillance campaigns which target both individuals mobile devices and personal computers. The operators of these campaigns are clearly active responsive and constantly seeking new attack vectors and techniques to ensure the longevity of their operations and quote

Investing for a Better Tomorrow with Greg Johnson and Paul West

"Fire nation sitting very patiently listening to all the great words of wisdom that you're gonna be sharing with us about investing for a better to morrow ends greg. Let's start with you. I'm curious about your thoughts on the importance of both diversification in risk tolerance when it comes to creating long term wealth. My audience are entrepreneurs. Small business owners. They really need to understand. Where diversification in risk tolerance are going to play in their world's good question. It's good concept. I yeah we deal with a lot of times with our clients you know. Sometimes you know when we have new clients or when we're talking to are trying to pitch the new people as well but He'll which really kind of interesting is a lot of people. Feel like you're not in the market meaning in by their terms of the market is just equities That is the only way you can make a return now. It's the only way of long hung to be successful if you do look at you know. Equities will perform better than obviously other asset classes. You know over the long haul. I we kind of showed our clients. And you'd look at you know the Portfolio just the s p. Five hundred since two thousand until now in menu look at the a diversified portfolio. Where it's sixty cord sixty percent Equities forty percent barnes. She may have some. Neil that as well may have some International stocks on the equity side but the sixty forty portfolio actually rob performance. Confide under which really interesting edgy. Do that taking less risk so what. I really say the people is look at times. We go up to seventy or eighty percent stocks. You know there's going to be other times when you make below sixty or sixty forty down to fifty fifty something of that nature. But you don't just believe that by taking risk your get returns for it. And that's something that's it's difficult concept for people to understand especially earlier but careers but it's something once you do understand it's gonna awards over the long haul and fire. Nation is critical. To think about is even when greg sharing this information and you know he might be talking about a one or two percents. You know of a higher return per year. My some people might kind of be like Well is that really that big of a deal and the answer is it's a huge deal as a massive deal over the course of a ten year portfolio. I mean it literally can be the difference of millions and millions of dollars so paul. What do you want to add to what greg share. What do you wanna riff on. Greg makes good points here. Just a piece i would add onto. This is diversification is all to help people be comfortable so when i think about risk. It's a lot of it's behavioral Everyone likes to chase latest had ideas. We're certainly seeing that ear and twenty twenty out so we had the market deterioration in Bartsch what happens every start selling because see other people selling and what had been happening since markets back quite nicely so if you did nothing to x. point in a better spot if you properly allocated to begin with The market's always done a wonderful job of making the majority of people and that's why having the right play together is a really good strategy and it's hard right because it's you see other people making money. You wanna make adjustments because no-one wants to feel like they're not the smartest person in the room so they wanna go chase returns. And that's why with you build out a plan and build out a target asset allocation curve. Sticking to it by greg. Bench is the most important thing they could do now. I just want to be very clear. Fire nation. that's. I'm not near the level of either gregor paul and the financial knowledge space. I spend a few years of john. Hancock in corporate finance. And i did my six three six six and my series seven as well so i do kind of know the talk and i know the lingering understands some things although it's been a long time and one thing that i really was thinking about when policy talking. Was you know. There is a big big difficulty when people churn when they come in and out of investments a lot. Because there's just a lot of fight this fees just a lot of expenses that go along when you are churning in and out of things and that's why you know when paul was going through and saying hey like if you're actually properly allocated at the beginning and probably diversified the beginning and you wait things out your oftentimes a lot better situation. Because over the last seventy eight plus years markets you know been nicely trending up but one thing i wanna talk about and let's stick with you here paul on this one is how can an investor enter and exit a position properly. Because i know that we don't wanna do this often times when you do want to actually get in or get out of a specific position. How do they do that properly. Given their specific time horizon there's probably several different pathways. You go down with this. John but i mean you're talking about specific positions. They usually mean. Someone's investing with money that i'm going to call. It is Disposable because they're now make it a calculated risk on when to get in and went to get out so there is certain timing things and what we see in especially for all your listeners. If they're working or they're busy during the day then they're not making trades during core hours. So it's easy to do sit at home at night. You're on your ipad it. You're looking up stuff. You're doing your own research. Like oh i really like this so you go enter in an order. Now you're dealing with after mark trading hours. So you need to be smart about when you're actually implementing your trade because a good traders know that People who don't do this frequently will push the buttons at odd times of day into especially if they don't understand the difference between what we call market orders versus limit orders. Where you actually name. Your price is people can be caught up guards. We wanted to be careful with that in like getting in and out is in. I always advise against it. Because you're just you're you're guessing. I'd almost rather say hey. Who do you like to bet on the football game. If you're probably just been chance to get that one right your point also about disposable income. I've always been a believer in having your core and then you're explore so you have your core. That's going to be that rightly diversified. Where you're in it for the long haul. This is the long term time horizon. But you know you can have that explore if you really want t know tesha waters in a few things but it should be within that disposable income

"Them to a girls night. So we can sell unsafe. Dildos right the story behind that jokes inspiration deserves its own episode down so far so the king of spain plan didn't work but mcgregor did make a deal in france. Somehow you found a very major french trading firm it was willing to buy five hundred thousand england play his start their own colony and he got another bank loan this time for three hundred thousand pounds. She's six million pounds. God he also printed out another leather bound. Sales perspectives. nice this time. Only forty pages called. Some account of the country has a ten. It's ten percent as big as the last woman. Yeah well with the allure of that. Very coy title. He got a bunch of people to sign up again but when all these people applied for passports to a country that didn't fucking exist. The french government was like no. You're stupid and the ship. Got stopped from leaving france at the last second when france says this is a stupid idea. You know you're fucked back was a good idea. He's quick question but like why would you even need a passport. Your colonizing some. Don't ask questions get me wrong. It seems polite. But it's rather out of the spirit of you know yeah. I guess he didn't see that coming. So the french government it looked into it and they had mcgregor arrested while he was in jail. He wrote a statement declaring his innocence claiming he was the victim of spanish intelligence plot and also demanding diplomatic community. Because he's the cacique of right. Yeah he demanded that just in case they didn't believe the thing about the spanish espionage chills roasted in the same statement rant ignored all that and he went to trial his magical fucking lawyer somehow successfully argued that mcgregor was actually the victim and the owner. The french trading company defrauded him. Great lawyer and the charges were dropped then. The french police finally found that owner guy. The french guy who is on the lam and they started up a new trial for both men. French guy ended up getting thirteen months jail arts. Why and the cacique of a was acquitted of all charges. Oh my god. This guy's amazing mystic all right. The prosecution should never have hired. Marcia clark's great-great-grandfather great team cut a young people who listen to our podcast. Googling marsha cochran she from the national football player murdered somebody but it didn't get in trouble. Love didn't fit guys. The gloves did not fit. That's so now it's eighteen. Twenty six mcgregor was obviously innocent. Backhoe london again to sell more timeshares. You went to the exact same bank from last time. What got alone for eight hundred thousand pounds million pounds today and selling bonds again. How is it getting all these slept for. Us was mortgage industry. Had betty better monetary controls in two thousand and seven hitting me. He was rated aaa by. Moody's you also started selling more of those asian land certificates but then. This is my favorite part. The new mosquito king frederick. Augustus place the new guy from mosquito coast showed up in london and sold thousands of similar land certificates that covered the exact same landlord. Now it seems like that would make the whole scheme blowup but instead it just slightly lowered the market price of point stuff because of mild skepticism this select group bunch of other conmen in london. Realizing this is fucking genius. What if we just sell land from a fictional place to. It's partly voice and this flooded market for acreage continued in london for about well more years with wider mcgregor. The industry leader. Wow the guy the guy selling them outside for season so landscaping greg. Greg has tons of money at this point but also tons of debt and in eighteen. Thirty eight he just left with money as well. He convinced the government that he was simone bolivars secret number two what decades ago. What got restored to his made up rank in their military including back backpay and a giant pension and he lived the rest of his life in luxury may say rock holy shit. Oh my total. His scams netted him a fortune was equivalent in buying power. Who about one hundred ninety billion american dies in twenty twenty two astronomically wealthy never convicted of one single crime. Oh my god how unreal i. I'm scared to ask but if you had to summarize what you learned in one sentence he would it be. I want the last check.

"And a quarter billion christians. Nearly as many muslims believe in one way less yes so the investors went crazy report. It seemed too good to be true but it did have a leather book. So people handing over their entire life savings by asian land. Oh my and then you really ramped it up by securing alone from a big london bank of two hundred thousand pounds. That's about twenty four million pounds today. She's us. He was using the future revenue of play as collateral loan. Wait did he. Start enron at the same time. Michael arrows. the money. I i will if you give me. But he had figured out how to deregulate the energy sector of boya he would have made saw. That's gonna bail out before all the actors waited so he gets the loan and then he sold bonds that actually got issued on the london stock so much they were marked down only eighty percent of face value so it was deal and they offered a six percent annual interest rate. Now these are all just nonsense numbers because it was based on fucking nothing but all of this stuff sold like crazy. This was the first part of the scam that eventually got him named the founding father of securities fraud the next week. He's tweeting boy. A stock prices too high in my opinion is just too. I was gonna say all he needs is an army of bitcoin sad boys and he can start selling flame. Throwers other guy. The biggest targets in terms of immigrants were mcgregor's fellow scotsman yom all pumped up about how scottish hardiness was perfect for the new colony. And they all came. Okay wait that's not a good selling point on future life endeavors when you look like you don't die easily is for that tip off you also claimed to be the direct ancestor of one of the guys who led the darien scheme. The yeah that was a selling point out. If you remember the darien scheme that's the disastrous attempt by the government of scotland at doing pretty much this exact same settlement project in panama in the sixteen ninety s despite being literally episode of this show and tragic failure again this was somehow useful in selling his idea also he was definitely lying about his ancestor being about everything and says regardless he got hundreds of people signed up right away and gave him all ridiculous titles in the army that did not exist just to dismay clear again even made a cobbler from edinburgh. The official shoemaker to the princess of there is no princess and really there was no way. I just a little mushroom diaper with a sign that says the princess of boy is in a different castle. Portobello should've starting to make some mushroom. So the first ship of european settlers took off on september tenth of eighteen. Twenty two with five thousand bank of dollar. Everyone was very happy to exchange a british money for the legal tender of their destination. She's when they arrived convenience of skipping the currency exchange booth wasn't that goal because there was literally nothing their leader. The party was a guy named hector hall. Lieutenant colonel of the second native regiment of the regional zeke and royal owner of a thirteen thousand acre royal estate. That's thirteen thousand acres in today's acres from the futuristic mosquito city of saint. Joseph didn't show up plan with all the welcoming gifts. We it hall quickly realized his title was way too silly to be real obviously tricked everyone but he kept quiet about that. So the whole party wouldn't freak out and told them to set up camp while he sailed off to look for the mosquito king. George augusta's figure out what was going on. He's just like you know what. I bet the all you can eat. Buffet is on the other side of the island. I'm i'm gonna shakes guys. Draw straws gone just for fun a sure strong so landing party had some basic supplies from the ship but no reliable source of food and water wants that ran out and nothing but dense jungle if they went inland at all so it got really bad almost immediately. According to historian alfred hasbrouck disease spread rapidly. Oh oh and really at mosquito coast. Okay real fast with disease He also added lack of proper food. And water and failure take the requisite sanitary precautions run on intermittent fever and dysentery. Many were so weak as to be able to crawl to the woods for the common offices of nature. The stench arising from the filth was unendurable and quote also official shoemaker to the princess of play shot himself on my only one picture and how long that stuff yes story chewed his bed while he tried to think about fancy way of saying they were constantly shitting them. So the common offices of anisur floored language for that. so lieutenant. Colonel hall finally managed to find the mosquito king and brought him back to the landing spot and the king saw that giant piles shit all over their little sheets. He's like fuck. Just why wouldn't you guys move down the beach a little bit as it stay right and the senate was like no. Yeah we did that. Look at all the piles down that way. And wow okay also. There's obviously no such thing as a or a cacique of boy you had to know that was fake stupid and you have to leave now. This is my stuffed up by british navy ship and went to honduras and then eventually tried to settle in the us or go home to england of the original two hundred. Fifty settlers hundred and eighty had already died and a bunch more know their destination. They were trying to go. Meanwhile back in england mcgregor had enlisted hundreds more people as part of the scam and five. More ships were on the way to the shit piles. Luckily the british authorities in honduras sent ships to intercept them and turn around so back in london. Gregor found out that exactly the tragedy he was planning had happened and that a really small party of his surviving victims were about to arrive so he fled to paris and despite british newspapers writing all about scheme he started selling time shares in france. Who are i don't know. I don't understand hero. It's amazing so he's in paris and this is working included a letter to the king of spain in which mcgregor claimed to be a descendant of the ancient kings of scotland is the chief memory of course. And also has zeke. Of of course yeah and he offered to lead an army based in it would take a bunch of the land in that region. That mcgregor had literally been trying to steal from spain for most of his career. Spain took a pass on. That geico tries hitting up his facebook friends to invite.

"And that's fucking stupid ears hated. Apparently this led to a big fight over some ridiculous detail with his commander and it turned into a giant. You'd got so big. Mcgregor was forced to request a discharge and everyone hated him. So we got that no problem and somehow also got back. The hundred eighty grand he spent on buying. That's got to keep the security deposit. When you visited our lieu tenant forget show. Me and hurt is no frosting on disturbed by the her principles. Some guy was like on you like that.

Trying to become part of the aristocracy but everyone hated him there because of everything i just mentioned in his personality in so he moved back to london. After that and tried the same thing to get into the aristocracy this time he added baronet title and also claim to be the chieftain of the mcgregor clan. To sir gregor macgregor the colonel knight baronet chieftain apparently put on one business card. It's just. I don't know how you fit. It worked at manager. Currently those extra couple allies did the trick and he quickly became part of london's high society to let you do anything when you're michigan man of the year. I'm just saying criminals. Graham by yeah colonel knight baronet doing great i don't believe that's sir colonel knight baronet chieftain mcgregor. Sorry on this ship but then his rich wife died and he had no more in loan and to my husband. I leave nothing because it was not just the size of his rank. He was exaggerating about and his only job. Experience was in the army that he had to quit for being a giant asshole but he noticed that a venezuelan revolutionary leader general francisco de miranda was treated super nicely in london during a visit so mcgregor figured the best move was to get into the latin american military coup second. Hey the usa him right really really did a very good point so it eighteen twelve. He sold all his stuff moved to venezuela down general miranda and got himself a job. This was made easy by mentioning his portuguese knighthood and his rank as an officer in the famous military unit called the die hards during that campaign in portugal and spain. now second thing is actually true. They were called the diehards but that unit didn't get that nickname until about a year after mcgregor got forced to retire for being a huge respect at the military doesn't have any money to buy a better rank this time and that means he can either actually earn a promotion or marianna. The rich lady he went with ridge lady and married josefa lavera from a wealthy family in caracas. Whilst happened to be the cousin of simone bulevar was about to become the leader of the revolution there. So mcgregor immediately became a brigadier general. Just in time to lose a big battle against the spanish colonial forces and lead the country spent the next few years name dropping his way into leadership spots and then losing more battles. And according to a biographer zenith of mcgregor's military career in south america was a really successful retreat in eighteen sixteen when he was super good at leading his troops to run away from the span army. I mean i guess you give a man enough experience right into the way you can sir that was in the biographies so metal on his hands. So gregor's coming off that amazing retreat and he has a letter of commendation from simone boulevard himself at mcgregor definitely. Didn't just forge letter says in my opinion that retreat is superior to the conquest of an empire. Really these except night. Congratulations or the prodigious services. You have rendered my country. Love the real song shows super real letter. General one are as mendi and asks for a new job and has mendis sends them to the united states recruit an army and take over florida from spain. Some gregor puts together about eighty men from south carolina and georgia. He raises one hundred and sixty thousand dollars by selling. Those people mcgregor johnson. Yup that's my favorite box and and get your bunch of that amazing. Northern florida swampland eventually and he sales from charleston to amelia island. Just off the northeast coast of florida. And somehow he. Convinces the spanish commander on that island to surrender without even firing a shot even though their forces are about equal size so regret plants flag and declared himself the sovereign leader of the republic of all the florida's dos. Florida man was borne. Say that sounds impossibly stupid but the result was florida so i actually marked the last time. Florida made a single fucking decision in a time. I'd pick their electoral votes real fast. So spain hears this tiny island getting taken over. And they still own all the florida's despite mcgregor's new title and both sides gear up for battle but mcgregor's whole plan immediately falls apart arrest of his recruits from the. Us never show up and the troops he already had were quickly realizing how stupid the mission really was especially because they were getting paid in. Amelia don mcgregor self. The currency of all the florida's all of them. Their tank was made out of airmail points. And it just falls. Apart in the way to battlefield one guy being dragged back onto the but he said we could pick anything from the box a. He's so mad he didn't think that so mcgregor is looking across the water the mainland and there's a giant spanish army so he says to his team. Okay we're gonna do this. I'm just gonna be right back. I did with his wife. To the bahamas. I never pay back. Investors about the mcgregor bucks or the million dollars the four x value of that. Emilia dollar never really goes anywhere and the team he left behind does not end up. Owning all the florida's mcgregor was able to forge some medallions down in the bahamas. That said amelia. I came. I saw i conquered and then he sailed back to london in order to set up another fake navy with fake money and steal something out of the things. Go on my mission to florida. Caesarian is how they've caught for a guy who married his way into money. He is working way to remain his job. She just beat a be hard. That's how marrying sounds great so much work. He's back in england and once again mcgregor trick a bunch of idiots into joining. His team raised money by cutting the british army and selling officer ranks way cheaper. I don't get what you pay for enlisted. Hundreds of irish volunteers offering.

And is it so much that i asked for my sandwiches to be cut concentric ever you actually and quick before we get started with yet another story about one of the many dishonest ways of making way more money than podcasting as ever gonna pay that were apparently experts reminds you that we don't have to be here if you'd like to learn how to keep us here at the end of the show and with that out of the way tell us feazel what person place thing concept phenomenon or event will be talking about today today. We're going to be talking about gregor macgregor. Alright he you can see doing offense. But i pulled it back at the last minute. He can we start crime. Just mccoy larry all right. So he's them. You consider this story a a great deal before settling on a major. Are you ready to weave this tale for us. Ready to leave. Let's do it all right. So who was gregor macgregor. Gregor macgregor was a soldier military commander world adventurer latin american revolutionary cause player and the greatest. The men in history he spent entire life coming up with bigger and bigger lies and compounding them and making money on each new thing and he eventually managed to convince thousands of people in europe and he was the crown prince of a fictional country in central america and sold them timeshares that they couldn't afford not to buy invented. Wait you're telling me the subject of this essay. A man essentially named scotland big scottish. Not oh yeah man Okay before we get rolling not some initial questions that choose the story of gregor macgregor because it's an allegory for donald trump. Is there a tie in with. Just fucking story great. I'm gonna tell my fucking gregor macgregor was born on christmas. Eve of seventeen eighty six at the ancestral home of the clan. Macgregor family had just recently been allowed by king george. The third start using their name again without getting hunted down for being anti royalty outlaws for the last few centuries now that describes most of ireland and scotland for most of history mcgregor clan had logo thing and coat of arms arms up and signature hearten kill pattern so they were fancy outlaws. I think i know exactly what you mean by fancy outlaws can't imagine you say their partner at moves bouche is supposed to be a single back within are playing. Well ebbs killing words boy. This is why we don't let you call harkness. We just don't allow you to do see salt and that was not doing embarrassed to be a part of that regardless i want everybody in old-timey scotland to sound like smell. Okay moving on side. Note here fun fact. One of those outlaw ancestors of mcgregor's was his great great uncle. Rob roy who became a folk hero for his role in the jacobite. Rebellions of seventeen fifteen and seventeen forty five tried to steal back the british throne from the catholic house of stuart and rob. Roy's life eventually inspired an operetta and a drink on opening night of the operetta in new york. A bartender at the waldorf-astoria invented the rob roy. Cocktail now sadly. It's just a stupid fucking rip off of manhattan but with scotch ins awry which is wrong thing. Yeah he was like This manhattan already tastes like drinking from that big jar. Barbara's put their stuff in but couldn't burden. The rob roy can be served a straight up over ice or as i prefer them down there's no atrocity and tie in though where we went and got off subject all right everybody remember. We're talking about gregor macgregor. So rob roy gregor mcgregor's great great uncle and actually having accomplishments israel rob. Roy did have accomplishments. And that's the end of the truth for the rest where you ally right. The events events are going to happen but everything gregor mcgregor says or does is infused with some kind of giant lie and it starts right away when he joins the british army at age sixteen and claims to have studied at the university of edinburgh between eighteen. O two and eighteen three which is technically zero amount of either way. There's no record of going there or getting a degree of any kind. It's possible he physically went to the campus at some point. It's like marquis. Marquis hung around harvard and got real smart. Bios moses one hundred and fifty thousand dollars on education you could got for a dollar fifty late fees at the aachen library like the one hundred percent saint-gobain watching that movie. So mcgregor entered the army in april of eighteen three and immediately had an officer's rank because his family purchased him and he's he should have bought him bone spurs. If you by downstairs. So here's an ensign. And that cost four hundred and fifty pounds which is about sixty thousand dollars in today's money but apparently his dad wouldn't keep buying him new ranks so he decided to marry a rich lady. While stationed in gibraltar. he met maria bowater. Daughter of an admiral in the british navy was also related to two two generals in the army and the very important botanist aylmer bork lambert. So gregor fucked his way into some sweet botany money and bought himself a big promotion up to the rank of captain. Cost nine hundred pounds or about one hundred. Twenty thousand dollars can't imagine how the uk lost their. I'm having attack. But he's entirely fair. A lot of people were fairly well convinced a bloomberg was gonna by himself and yeah so it's not like we don't have a don't worry america more than half of congress that are millionaires. Got there on their merits though. It's fine biden. Did with the burris. Mamani gregor and his unit got sent to portugal. In eighteen. thousand nine helped drive the french out of spain during the peninsular war while he was there became a giant stickler about wearing all the rank insignia and medals and other ridiculous uniform details lowest level. Soldiers weren't even allowed to leave their tent without a full dress uniform..

"But in the early morning hours of April thirtieth eighteen nineteen Gregor soldiers was sleeping off the alcohol from the night before when the Spanish troops crept through their encampment. As the Sun. Rose Gregor's soldiers finally awoke to realize they were under attack by then. It was too late. The Spanish had them cornered. The army looked in vain for their fearless leader. That Gregor was already long gone. As soon as he woke into the commotion he had hoped out of his window and made for the ships docked off shore. The Spanish victory over the British was quick and easy. And while the soldiers he'd recruited were being captured by the enemy. Grega commanded his remaining men to sail him to safety much. Like on Amelia Island. Grega gave no thought to the men. He'd abandoned and many of them were killed in Spanish custody including Greg's far more competent secondhand William Ratna. Portobello was a disaster from start to finish but soon enough. Grega pulled an almost identical stunt in a northern city of new Granada called Rio de la Hoya. Most of the soldiers he leads into the city ended up. Never coming home again and again Gregor made the same mistakes recruiting troops stalling the mature for far too long and then abandoning them to their deaths. Just as the enemy was swooping in but rather than learning from his blunders. Greg had a tendency to shrug them off past the blame to someone else and do it all again. This habits of shifting the blame may be exactly the reason why Gregor kept falling into the same pitfalls in a two thousand fourteen study observing felony convex researchers found that most criminals could be sold it into two categories those who felt guilty for their actions and those who felt shame while these may sound similar there is one key difference between the two those who feel guilty blame themselves for their actions while those who fell shame tried to blame others for their mistakes over a period of time researchers found the criminals who felt shame had a higher chance of committing the same crime than those who felt guilty. This was because the guilty convicts but more likely to correct own behavior while the shameful ones never bothered to reflect on how they needed to change. Greg is actions indicate the he was in the same category and this may explain why he kept repeating the same disastrous behavior but though he never held himself accountable others certainly did word got out. After these military disasters and soon breath found himself shunned by comrades and even close friends Simone Believer who had given him special commendations or more than one occasion charged. Grega with treason. He put out orders to hang the scotsman if he ever returned to the South American continent. Greg was devastated. He tried to blame the failures on anyone. But himself assuring the rebels that he was a victim of circumstance but it was too late past the provider and the false charm. Everyone could see Greco for the fraud. He truly was fearing for his life. Greg and his wife disappeared for several months in his mind. The military have become far more trouble than it was worth. He could now see that it wouldn't get him to where he wanted to go but his recent experiences did give him some new ideas. Greg learned that the British were especially susceptible to the idea of adventuring to exotic South America. This meant that there was money to be made in sending Europeans overseas. What happens to them off? Though wasn't his concern but perhaps the most valuable lesson of all was that he realized he didn't need to be a decorated army man to gain the recognition he desired. All he had to do was at the pump long enough to earn people's confidence with this in mind. Greg set about putting together something truly brazen. He invented an entirely new country..

"With Miranda imprisoned CMO Bolivar took over the rebel cause wary of their vulnerable position or Leva commanded the army. Wait on cure so until they found the right time to strike but Gregor grew impatient with believers tactics. The only way that he would get the fame and recognition he wanted was by being on the front lines of a battle. So Gregor took matters into his own hands. He slipped away from curious. Oh and joined more radical rebel group in new Granada in what now? Modern Day Colombia Venezuela and Ecuador their Greco once again played up his military prowess and European training to secure a new commission. The soldiers under his command were less than impressed. They described Greg. As a Don Quixote character. He may have talked to be game but performed so poorly on the battlefield that he may as well have been fighting. Windmills for there wasn't much time to complain about Greg's leadership skills and the face of a rebellion the Spanish for advancing and before long they had forced Gregor's regiment to Cartagena a port city on Colombia's western border by late eighteen fifteen. The new Granada forces were completely surrounded. And just a few hundred rebel soldiers were left in the city. Greg was one of three commanding officers. Charged with getting everyone out of Katerina's safely and somehow against all odds they succeeded. It's unclear whether Gregor had a large hand in planning the operation but when it turned out to be a resounding success he claimed credit for the victory or the same and over the next year. Twenty nine year old Greg. Military campaigns proved enormously successful mostly because he was single minded when it came to pursuing a victory when his soldiers were outnumbered and outgunned. Grega kept pushing food ignoring the odds stacked against them. This mindset was instrumental in keeping the Spanish army from advancing and earn Gregor accolades for his bravery but also demonstrated a lack of empathetic leadership. According to Research James Anger leaders can often be divided into two categories. Those who are results focused and those who show exceptional social skills such as strong communication or empathy individuals who are more results focused were found to frequently reach their goals at the expense of those that were underneath them. For Gregor the stakes couldn't have been higher running into battle. Despite being outmanned often meant that he was putting his soldiers lives in danger. He'd lose dozens of men if not hundreds all for the glory of a battlefield victory and this understandably bread contempt among his troops. Despite the fact that Greg had simone boulevards personal gratitude. He often clashed with his commander in charge and found himself. Losing control of his men just like in Europe Grega had failed to gain the respect of his regiment so he did what he did best and simply moved on in October eighteen. Sixteen twenty nine year old Greg. I left new Granada for Margarita Island. Just off the coast of Venezuela. There he found a new commission. Under General John. Podesta Arizmendi are as Mendis. Goal was to take Florida from the Spanish and he put Grega in charge of the mission. It was right up. Drako's Ali Florida could be a huge asset for South America and as the sole commander of the operation he would naturally receive all the accolades to prepare for the Operation Gregor his wife and a group of top ranking officials sale to the United States in March of eighteen seventeen. They knew that without American support it would be nearly impossible to take Florida back from the Spanish. So Gregor turned on the charm. He promised his potential investors huge returns on their donations off a piece of property in Florida. It was never clear whether or not he had the authority to fulfill these promises but in three months he managed to raise what would amount to nearly three and a half million dollars today. Gregor also recruited several hundred American men to help fight for the cause and on June twenty-ninth eighteen seventeen Grega and eighty soldiers sailed to Amelia island off the coast of the Florida peninsula. The perfect location to launch their attack. But Gregor didn't wait to conquer Florida before staking his claim as soon as they dropped anchor. Greg declared Amelia Island. As the capital of the new of the Florida's he even created a new flag for the state and started paying his soldiers in an invented currency that he called Amelia bills but his men were less than pleased. They didn't want to use the phone. Currency they wanted to loot the island but Gregor had forbidden it and if his soldiers happened to get their hands on any treasure that the island's resident pirates left behind he. Tax THEM FOR THE VALUABLES. But perhaps what irritated and the most was the fact that Gregor refuse to mount his attack. The soldiers sat on Amelia Island itching to go to battle but Gregor insisted they lay low and wait for the rest of his recruits. He explained that without their full numbers. It would be impossible to take Florida so they waited as the weeks dragged into months. The supplies inevitably dwindled. The Amelia bills were spent too quickly and soon greg was forced to stop paying the soldiers all together but in September of eighteen. Seventeen when the Spanish forces started assembling to attack the island. Gregor's men had had enough. The Spanish army gathered slowly giving Greg as men plenty of time to prepare and yet Gregor did nothing. They were sitting ducks going against orders. His men rush to arm themselves against the coming attack. But Gregor simply gave up. He knew he lacked the skills to defeat the Spanish with such few men so he pushed the blame on the Americans. He announced that his so-called supporters had cheated him and sabotage they 'cause then with that Gregor boarded his ship taking his high ranking offices with him. They set sail towards the Bahamas and left them men to fight off the Spanish on their own. Amelia Island was Greg McGregor's first. Ob Unintentional financial con. His American investors never got their money back and the Spanish were easily able to overcome his remaining men on the island but the experience Greco some valuable lessons. Another man might have vowed to brush up on his military tactics but Gregor focused on a new skill. After Amelia Island he realized just how easy it was for him to convince people to follow his lead with the right combination of words and empty promises and as he contemplated leaving the army yet again. Grega started to wonder how else he might put those abilities to good use.

'Star Wars': Ewan McGregor in Talks for an Obi-Wan Kenobi Series for Disney+

"Let's move on to star wars. Let's talk about <hes> this rumor that you and mcgregor mcgregor might have signed on to reprise his role as obi wan kanobi h._d. Would win. Yes a new rumor has surfaced that union gregor has signed on to star in an obi-wan-kenobi series <hes> and this is something that <hes> may or may not be announced that the d twenty three expo. That's coming up but <hes> it's a rumor that came from a report from cineplex <hes> and they don't have many details for now except that gregor has signed on to star in some sort. It'll be one kanobi project but <hes> we don't have anything concrete at the moment yeah well. This is a new rumor. We've been talking about this for. I think over a year now there's been rumors that there might be over wan kenobi standalone spinoff film when they were doing a star wars stories which looks like they've abandoned at this point and <hes>. There's been rumors that they were going to do a series. Here is a wise idea like because. I feel like i feel like disney's taking taking the wrong lessons from solo star story and i think the lesson they're taking is that people want less star wars which i don't think is necessarily the case. If you look at marvel you know marvel was doing really well and they're doing three upcoming four films a year. I think the lesson is that like they want new characters actors in new stories. But what do you think all. I think obi wan <hes> obi wan didn't really get his due in the prequels of of these he was really popular. Character and people wanted to see more of him and <hes> <unk> fans have been kind of <hes> jostling four and obi wan kanobi movie movie or series for a while now and i think that if you mcgregor was sign on than it would be successful than the solo movie because solo did have <hes> <hes> what's his name alden iron rake starring and he was much less a much more of an unknown than even regular <hes>. I think that it could work and it could have. It's a it's fans. <hes> i do think that people do wanna see new star wars but at the same time i think gets too early to say what lessons disney's taking for now because we don't really know the plan for <hes> their star wars projects in the future at least not until possibly probably in a series of announcements at twenty three yeah. I guess my my my biggest problem with us. I like you and mcgregor as leon and i would love to see him reprised that role but is there really story to be told between you know revenge the seth and <hes> star wars a new hope like he's in the middle of the desert of tattooing like water yeah. He's he's watching luke from afar like chris. Is there any story to be told they're like is he. Just like uninjured taking out people that are coming after luke like i don't know i. It sounds kind of dull yeah. I mean if they were to do this. I would like it to be like a completely completely standalone thing like i don't wanna bunch of winking references to stuff we are like i didn't dislike solo but we didn't need like oh. Here's how the kessel run happened and like. I you know if you wanna make a movie. That's just like obi wan in the desert doing his own thing. It has nothing to do with luke that like that might be interesting. They may make like a western something or something like that with o._b. Wanted it but it just going to be about him. You know watching over luke and reflecting on his past and i don't. I don't think we need that. But what do i know yeah yeah i don't. I don't know <hes> i mean maybe there's a way you know solo star wars story. I know there's a lot of fans that fell out there. They've they've made this movement which is not as loud and obnoxious as the <hes> release. The snyder cut movement but they're trying to get solo to happen which i don't think it's ever going to happen me. Solo left things is open for the story to go. There was like a continuing storyline that <hes> you know was promptly stopped because they're probably not gonna make a sequel.

First Take

Hour 2: Mel Kiper Jr's NFL draft predictions

"Mel kiper junior into the show. What's up melt? Hey, guys, how you doing? Good. All right. So number one overall. Mel you have Nick Bosa going to the cardinals. You've heard the things cliff Kingsbury has said about collar Murray, he's a big fan. But he's also said Josh Rosen is our guy. So how confident are you about the cardinals going Bosa at one do guys with a mock draft you call around and you get different opinions. You try to build some type of a consensus. Steve drafted Josh Rosen. I thought he held his own for getting no help you seems like the players in that locker ROY believe in him you move forward. Josh Rosen would have a higher grade than any quarterback in this draft. If you go basically apple apple, and you try to reject a year with a year experience where they would be. But I think they're happier with Josh Rosen than they would have been a quarterback including Tyler Perry. Tyler Murray is still five nine five ten and size body type or still some things at the combine and pro day, and he's going to have to answer to give up on Josh Rosen and go that direction. I don't see it happening based on the people have spoken to. So I went with both. Over Josh Allen. That's going to be the debate the trait outta there. Do you tape boasts Allen right now, it seems like Bosa may be the lead who knows internally with their thinking. But trading out of there for team. Let's go out and get Askins. Maybe something maybe interested in listening to Mel. I'm very surprised by that draft. Order Nick Bosa is the is the foolproof, right? He's going to be a stud, but people felt that way about Nick last year. Sorry, Bradley Chubb last year, he's the best Pash rusher by so much you might as well, get them. There question marks about everyone including including. Cleveland Browns quarterback acre Mayfield, including Gregor Mayfield. Sam darnold everyone. So they're going to go, Bradley choke with not only didn't go Bradley Chubb. They went to the talented quarterback, you know, out of the big twelve who they had questions about right? Isn't that Keiler Murray this year, and isn't Nick Bosa basically, Bradley up? Well, Trump had a great year and shove ended up going to a team that utilize him and put him out there with Miller and he's a tremendous player. Tremendous young man, he's going to have a huge future and the ratio that I think when taken the war, Denzel word overcharged was what Cleveland was kind of debating there. Do you take the corner the pass rusher and put him opposite Garrett? They thought Ogbeh would come on. He didn't. But that was a decision obeyed word played well till he got hurt. I think we look at at Murray Murray is different in that he's five nine and a half. He's not six foot and a half to twenty like Baker Mayfield was and is I think that body type when you think about we've never seen before we've seen Baker Mayfield types. Okay. Before we haven't seen Cuyler Murray fight go this SARS, no conflict Kyle Murray. Guys. There's none. So I think we've talked. The number one pick four pick even a first round pick for that matter. I've at thirteen to Miami you've never seen this ever happened before. So I think some answers may become at the combine when you see him as he looked like he can hold up. It looks those guys in the eye. Does he looked like an NFL quarterback putting on a board? You know, it's football IQ should be really good the hand size people. Always look at that nine is that is that there you can do it or you can't will see hand size with collar Murray comes in at so still some things that'd be determined the answers. I got back from that question. This week is was leave Cuyler Murray at thirteen don't move him up that seems to be fair for right now in the process is that you say that Mel just this morning. We learned we got some news. Peter King was speak into Lincoln Riley, the coach at OU, and he said that ninety one percent of the past column Murray through from the pocket while at OU last season ninety one percent of this passes were from floor from Nepal. So when you look at him in comparison to Dwayne has its handicap that us was break that down. What makes? What one quarterback better than the other for the next level in light of that ninety one percent there column, right? That's a great point. Because I think you look at how do you compare? I don't remember one man's L came out. I said he's a wild card even out liar. I don't know what he's going to be Baker Mayfield. Last year was the wildcard big three. We knew it was Josh Allen Sam darnold. Josh Rosen maker Mayfield was the wild card this year the wild card again is Kyle Murray. So you compare him to Haskins asan's as a traditional guy. Everybody knows what you're getting there. Even though he was one year as a starter. We don't know we're hoping I think if you draft him say at thirteen or wherever in the first round, you hope that today's NFL okay with the shotgun so deep getting that shotgun snap not under center, basically in space Todd mcshane's but talking about the statute great set more passes batted down for six foot and over quarterback than six foot and under quarterbacks like Cuyler Murray. So today's NFL makes this happen. It's kind of the perfect storm for him coming out at the right time and the right situation. So there's going to be able to protect his body. He can slide. We know that we know how lightning quickie. Yes. That is in the back. Of his Eddie senses things that nobody else. Can't you mentioned the pocket of build? That's underrated part. He will sit in that pocket. He will wait he'll go through progressions. And he's tremendously accurate. His completion percentage. Was right. Where Mayfield was and he accounted for more touchdowns this season. The Baker Mayfield did during his great year two seasons ago. So I said three months ago collar Murray six foot tall five eleven. It's no discussion. He's the number one pick. But at five nine and a half, it makes it interesting. So let's go to the other quarterback that people are talking about many projected to the giants including you at sixth Wayne Haskins. You said something interesting to me earlier, you said that that Sam darnold. Did you say Sam darnold would've sorry? Josh Rosen would've graded out as the best quarterback in this draft to me Dwayne Haskins looks like a better prospect than Josh Rosen or even probably Sam darnold does not as mobile as Sam darnold. How what do you think of where does Haskins rate and all this? Why wouldn't you give him a great underwear? Josh Rosen was less. Year. Well, they were better quarterbacks coming out. I think that those guys were elite we had talked to years ago about those guys even before they were in the draft that they would have come out earlier. They would have been highly. They were they were considered special. And they said back in August prior to those kids coming out last year that in August that it wouldn't set up well for those and they were Josh Allen, Los everything around them. Sam darnold loss a lot around him. And Josh Rosen was that UCLA where they didn't have a ton of talent. So it wasn't set up for those guys to live up to all the hype in terms of the numbers and the way they were expected to take over and dominate gains and be spectacular. So people were kind of wondering over radium. No, you weren't there. Great quarterbacks. And I thought the people in the league is that these guys this year be thankful if you're those teams you got those quarterbacks they're better and every team in the first round from Lamar Jackson won the Baker and everybody in between those guys are thrilled to have. And they don't have to worry about this Dwayne Haskins a one year starter. That's it. And he had a little trouble struggles rowing the Penn State game. But I like the fact he got better. He learned a seems like he's going to be all in to be a quarterback. He loves the challenge and the pressure that comes from being a quarterback. But so criticism of him to say those guys better those guys were considered super elite and special entities for a two year period. So that's not a critique Dwayne Haskins or or taking a shot. Joe Dwayne Haskins on that's a fair thing to say those three. And then you throw Baker Mayfield John Dorsey number one. Look what happened. He emailed that pick. They can own that division for the next ten years because of this draft and because of getting Baker Mayfield Bubills love Josh ninety five and five they weren't a games. He started to finish. You can Nate Sam darnold. Look what he did in the last month of the season. Look around more Jackson games. He wants those teams guys are thrilled that they know they got the right quarterback for a long long time. And hopefully for Baltimore. Lamar Jackson the passing has improved. But from from winning, and the attitude they're all in on the March access by those teams are really happy where they are right now quarterback

"And I think he's one of those forty five hundred on the branded if that e best, you know, we had a tough loss Lance Almer NFL tournament, but I tried to him every day. So, you know, we got a really good group guys. We're training. Obviously, you know, the guys over at long out. I'm a the guys if I'm more kickboxing, we got a nice guys about with. But you know, bars like having my face and the it that oh. I just want to most important thing winning. The result is the only important thing in the long run. Tell me why. Tell me why fishing is better than hunting. I'm not saying that it is. I just I honestly I've never been on thing. I've shotguns a lot growing up. We grew up in a very, you know, secluded area and upstate New York. And we you know, you drive ten minutes out of town. You're not apple orchards Rican, shoot, whatever you want. So we grew up shooting guns. But I never I never I've actually been on a hunt. You know, obviously when we were me, and my best friend when I was younger collar snow. We used to shoot squirrels and frogs and stuff, but I never actually gone on or a hog or anything like that. I'm sure I'd love it. I think there's a little more involved with tracking and tracking in setting up trail cans and all that again. I'm not familiar with it. But I think it's probably a little more volved in getting into boat going outside and the spot and and run it some lures by a boat. So I think there's probably a little more instant gratification fishing, which is a little more up. My alley, but I've I don't know that fishing is better than hunting. I've never been hunting thing. So I can't I can't even say that you are the nicest madman. In the world Gregor Gillespie. You truly are. Yeah. Like it on top. Yeah. Exactly. And then you're demon.

"Then this is the show. You should be listening to I've got Gregor and Bethany you tag here, and they are from the Dallas area and what they've done is. They've gone out believe it or not in three years and bought forty six apartment complexes invested in them at curly are instill thirty eight of those arrested sold they got three thousand seven hundred twenty nine units. And if you've got one red house, and they say, they got three thousand seven hundred come on guys. This is this is this is exciting stuff as we're going to break. They were talking about being sceptical about coming to a free workshop, even as they drove to the two day. They were skeptical about the two days, we're gonna. This backup Bethany you got cut off there and to say, okay, the skepticism was there. But let's talk about what the first day brought to you. And we'll get to the second day later. So talk to his Bethany about how you took that skepticism into the first day in what you came away with after one day. The first day, you know, mostly all about single family, and how everything works and David Fisher did a great job who's talking about it. But I'm thinking to myself to replace crackers income, I'm an actor by a lot of houses. And I don't wanna work that hard. I mean, the idea made I liked what he was saying. But it just I just didn't see how that was going to work for us. You know, we kind of knew by the end of the second day that either or the end of the first day, the either gonna be multifamily, or at least it wasn't going to solve all of our problems. It might make it better. But not southbound. So what was the moment? I don't know which one if you wanna pick this up maybe both of you should highlight it because it could be different. I always like to ask you sitting there. Let's say the second day, boom. The lightbulb goes off in your resume here. You talk about. You decided right then and there on that second day that you were going to go ahead and upgrade and go out there and get started. What was the light bulb that went off Bethany? That said boom now, I get it. Well, mine was the NY and how apartments are valued. And therefore, if you're an ally goes that the valuation goes up, and I literally was sitting there with me. We've had been kind of. Thank you. And figured out. Okay. So if we bought a two million dollar perfect complex, and you have five hundred thousand dollars invested in it and the value that five hundred thousand dollars. Doubled your money, and I was like on that. I think this can be done. Now, did you share that with Gregor Gregor? Did you have a different at Pitt second day? That. Saying that that really caught my eye, and I guess the other part is. How much passive income over net worth sort of, you know, different way of looking at things and never been exposed to that. And that's really changed how we approach things especially since after we've joined lifestyle. Yeah. That little calculation that I came up with twenty years ago has probably changed more people's minds about financials than anything else where you take all of your passive income from last year divided by your network, the average person makes less than one percent on their net worth per year. So it's a frightening realization for us that are highly invested, by the way, we would be considered incredibly good. If we cap it at ten percent return on our network, but we fighting somewhere between one and ten percent. Is that fight to keep everything? You have reinvested did not let your equities growing your house. Not let your equities growing your investments. It's et cetera et cetera and to keep that stuff moving. So that's a great epiphany. So you guys came out of their decided to upgrade, let's talk about. Then the next step how much education did you pick up onto you guys are highly educated people, we have massive education how much of the education did you use before you went out and bought some. All of it. We literally drove home from our I mentor appointment, we had JV Durham at the time. And he gave me a whole page of things and a whole page of videos that Gregor and I had to do before we touch him again. And literally on the way home we stopped at the bookstore and bought half of those. And immediately started reading and watching everybody we both watched all of them. That's interesting because I'm in the process of buying a classy apartment complex right now. My fiance's been in the business for twenty twenty five years as a manager. And as a supervisor, you know, what I made us both do right before we while. We're in the process by using went back and took the whole multifamily series. Again. There's just not enough education out there. You forget things it sharpens. Saw you ready to go get attack and so on so forth. Let's talk about road trips. Did you go on any of them case studies, did you go to them? Let's hear about your thoughts of knows. You've probably talk about case studies, I was usually duty. And he did case study. The beep. I went on several case studies this four totally mentioning it Tabatha Nate and getting her to go to the free workshop just staying family after family where single family is has changed their their lives and the retirement pattern as well as you know, multifamily. Deals.

"Home. He was thrilled with his new career as a substitute teacher and was always enthusiastic in the classroom teaching math and science to his students. His self confidence began to increase. He started to dream of getting full accreditation as a teacher. Perhaps this would be the legacy. He left the world in the spring of eighteen fifty. He decided to apply for certification in Vienna. The tests had three stages. The first stage involved submitting written essays on different scientific topics to the board of examiners. If a prospects essays, where proved he would then travel to Vienna to meet the examiners in person. When he arrived, there would be two more stages to the exam. He would write an additional essay on a new scientific topic first. Then he would participate in an oral examination in may of eighteen fifty Mendel sent the examiners his first two essays on geology and meteorology, and what it examiners think of these two essays written by the future founder of modern genetics, not much they were less than impressed with Mendel essays. In particular, the examiner of his geology essay thought it was terrible. Written Mendel is smart. But as we've already seen an incredibly anxious young man, he tended to freeze up when taking tests. Nevertheless, the examiners agreed to let Mendel advanced to the in-person test in Vienna on August. First, the examiners instructed mental by letter to come in for his certification exams later that August Mendel eagerly packed up his bags and boarded a train Vienna in mid August half a day later, he arrived ready to prove his worth. Unfortunately, Mendel didn't receive the second letter. The examiner sent immediately. After that first one, they decided that they wanted to delay medals exam so they could all go on vacation in August when Mendel arrived in Vienna, the examiners Curtly told him to go home, but Mendel wasn't about to let them send him home like misbehaving child for once the meek, young man stood up for himself. He explained that he hadn't received the examiners second letter. He. Wanted the chance to earn his certificate. It was a bold move and a risky one Mendel had already earned the ire of the examiners by refusing to let them go on vacation. They could very well take their anger out on him by refusing to approve certification. The odds were stacked against Mendel as he began the next stage of the exam on August fifteenth, eighteen fifty. He needed to write a new essay on zoology, this was his chance to wow, the examiners and compensate for his terrible geology and meteorology essays. But as usual Mendel did not cope well under pressure, he choked on the zoology essay, scribbling out answers that made little sense. Vizo algae essay prompt, asked Mendel to list of Orion of animals and explain why they were useful. Mendel was expected to organize the animals by their Latin species names, but it was as though Mendel had forgotten every bit of science he had learned over the years. He didn't use any of the proper Latin names. And his descriptions of each animal were shockingly elementary. For example, he wrote that a cat was useful because it got rid of mice in that an elephant was quote, a splendid beast of burden need this to say, the examiners were appalled by his essay. Luckily Mendel had one last chance to prove himself. There was still the oral exam on August sixteenth, eighteen fifty Mendel walked into a Vienna classroom to complete his oral exam. It was an unmitigated disaster. The examiners peppered Mendel with physics questions, paralyzed buying Zayed's. He found himself unable to answer them. The decision was unanimous Mendel failed the exam for someone like Mendel who already struggled with self doubt. This was a major blow to his self confidence. Dispirited the young man traveled back home to the Saint Thomas monastery..

"Theological college every day and enjoyed life at the quiet monastery. Saint Thomas was considered to have one of the best kitchens in all of Austria. Mendel indulged in multiple course meals meet slathered in rose, hips sauce, rich pastry. And cream tarts and coffee or wine, the meals were sumptuous and likely responsible for his subsequent weight gain over the years, regardless Mendel wasn't above making fun of others for being overweight at one point in his early years at the monastery Mendel earned the ire of Bishop Shaath coach by making fun of the bishops. Wait to another novice when Shaath go coach, visited the monastery. The Bishop overheard Mendel hypocritical remarks, and he held a grudge against Mendel that lasted for years. Five years after he first entered the monastery. Mendel was ordained as a priest on August. Sixth eighteen forty seven. He took the religious name Gregor and began using that instead of his first name. That's why Mendel is now remembered as Gregor Mendel instead of Johann Mendel. Unfortunately, Gregor Mendel quickly realized he didn't wanna be a priest any more than he had wanted to be a farmer is old anxieties rose up to choke him as he went about his priestly duties in. The fall and winter eighteen forty eight. He was no good at easing the suffering of the gravely ill. He didn't have the words to comfort or sued the grief of family members who had lost their loved ones. He dreaded the visits where he had to asto last rites, but what was he do? He had already chosen the life of a priest. He couldn't back out now, but he also couldn't stand to perform his required duties. It was an impossible situation by early eighteen forty nine, twenty six year old Mendel had another nervous breakdown. He threw himself into his bed and couldn't find the energy to get up for more than a month. There were no psychiatrists or therapists at this time who could have diagnosed or eased mental mental distress. But added nap was shrewd enough to recognize that Mendel unhappiness was connected to his job as a priest..

"And returned home to his family's farm. He crawled into his childhood bed and refused to leave his room. He lay in bed for months as his family grew increasingly concerned. His mother and ten year old sister Teresa brought him meals and tried their best to encourage him to leave his bedroom after all. He wasn't suffering from a fever or any other obvious physical malady. He should have been able to at least help out around the farm Mendel wouldn't or couldn't explain his inner torments to his family, but it was very poor timing for a nervous breakdown. A tree had fallen on his father a few months earlier badly injuring him. Now, Anton was having trouble maintaining the farm and he really needed mental help, but Mendel couldn't bring himself to leave his bed. He lay there the entire summer in the fall. Of eighteen thirty nine. He managed to pull himself together and go back to the gymnasium. He graduated in eighteen forty and began studying at the philosophical institute. This school was meant to be a stone for students on their way to university, but Mendel was miserable. At the philosophical institute. The school was in the Czech city of ole amounts as a German speaker mental struggle to speak check the city's primary language. He still needed to support himself with tutoring, but his limited ability to speak Czech, made him an unattractive teacher to all amounts check families. He wasn't able to find many tutoring eggs in the fall and winter of eighteen forty. He could barely even afford to feed himself half the time, his anxiety and oppressive tendencies started to get the better of him. Once again by eighteen forty one, he had given up and dropped out of school. He went back home and return to his childhood bed. The nineteen year old had been the fam-. Academic prodigy, and it was likely humiliating for him to be reduced to such a state month after month. He worried about his future and his family's what would happen if he never went back to school, how is he going to bear taking over the farm from his father. Luckily for mental, his two sisters were willing to help relieve him of his anxiety is his older sister, Veronica, and her husband Alois agreed to look after the family's farm Mendel. No longer had to worry about failing in his duties as eldest son, Mendel twelve year old sister Theresa took it upon herself to ease her brother's financial burden. She loaned him her dowry. So he could afford to go back to the philosophical institute. The significance of her generosity here can't be understated, Theresa had no way of earning income for herself and would need that money in a few years to win over future husband. This was an incredible sacrifice for her to make with Theresa's help. Mendel went back to school. Cool in all amounts. But two years later in eighteen forty three. He was at the end of his rope. He was anxious once again about the future convinced he'd never be able to afford university. He wasn't sure what to do, but then his physics professor came up with an idea that would change the course of twenty one year old Mendel life forever. He suggested that Mendel could affordably pursue his love for learning by becoming an Augustinian monk. The Augustinian monks were more intellectual than many of the other orders. They prioritized education and engaged in studying and teaching. And so in eighteen forty three Mendel traveled to Brun Austria and joined the Saint Thomas monastery. It was in the greenhouse of Saint Thomas monastery that Mendel would soon revolutionize humanity's understanding of reproduction and the nature of life itself. Time for quick break.

"Bloomberg intelligence so the feds still. Talking about this too worried about how not to be The curve. Invert because that seems to be a signal for recession although the wags are. Very very long so it's not obvious, to me that a flat curve necessarily means recession but, the fed wants to avoid that and one. Of the things that they'll certainly, talk about at. The meeting is hey can we. When should we stop is going only once every quarter gonna invert the curve or not right now we have got the.

Much Dave Wilson tracking those American depositary receipts so again recapping here. Stocks mixed SNP down for a drop, of about two tenths of. One percent I'm, Charlie pelletan that is a Bloomberg business, flash all right Charlie thank you with midterm elections in the US coming in November and a new president in Mexico Mexico taking office in December the two countries are, nearing a deal on new rules for cars sold. Under NAFTA one. Of the major sticking points and, talks to. Revise the trade agreement speaking at a US S. chamber of commerce event this week commerce secretary Wilbur Ross discuss the progress or media close. To completion negotiations are with NAFTA particularly with Mexico we're very. Pleased that, the new. President in Mexico, wasted no, time at, all in pulling is new trade team sir McGregor is Bloomberg news economic policy team leader. She joins us now for more on this story from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios, in, Washington DC so Sarah how would. The US and Mexico settle the their. Differences over, cars so that's the big question right now what what is in this deal you know. We're hearing that. That the US Mexico are getting. Closer to, some, sort of agreement on autos and there are so many contentious issues in these NAFTA talks but without. A doubt autos is. Probably going to be the hardest one for them to agree on so it is. Significant that if they are getting closer to some to some sort of idea of what they'd Want that basically the lion's share of the US trade deficit with Mexico is cars and we. All know by now that the, trade deficit is really big car parts right and car parts and we know that the trade, deficit, is. Trump's the, thorn in Trump's side when when he talks. About trade so it's really at the. Cracks of redoing this deal so it really can't be overstated how important it would be if Mexico and the, US can can find an, agreement on that but. The big question is where is candidate seems like the US and Mexico are sort of in the boardroom. Right now, at the negotiating table and Canada's in the waiting room and can? They even make deal over cars without. Involving Canada Mexico is the biggest? Source of, car imports to the US Canada's right behind it at number two so how how this practically, would happen it's not clear right now but it would be. Significant if there's some, progress so tell us what the sticking points have been in this area of. Automobiles and auto parts so the US at one point you know had said they want a significantly larger portion Parts of a car percentage of a car to be built from North American made. Parts so they wanted something, like seventy five percent from the current agreement was sixty two point five percent Mexico wanted a little bit lower lower than that and I think also. The US really wanted to make sure that these these parts? That basically the value of the car was coming from higher wage work Trump's biggest one of his. Biggest concerns has been US jobs going. To lower costs Mexico in, the automotive sector in the manufacturing sector and I. Think the US wanted to try and guarantee that higher wage labor was going to be an. Aspect of this agreement put into, writing now so that those jobs could be in America Do you have any idea why the Trump administration has shut Canada out of this out of these talks and are the Mexicans on board with keeping the Canadians out at this point Well I think big turning point was the election of the new president in Mexico to lie I Trump himself has said he's spoken with Anglo since he was elected. And it really seems like there's a priority right now in Mexico as well to get a deal before. This new president in this new administration in Mexico takes over on December first so I think that was a little bit of a more of a willing partner with Mexico right now and, also the US has been pretty vocal. About the fact that Canada has, sort of tried to tried to go a little bit around them to influence lawmakers in the US industry groups and and the US doesn't like that it, wants to negotiate with Canada and it thinks it's, sort of, a little bit of a, sneaky way that candidates taken. To try. And get its voice across by, talking to these congress people who are then trying to go to Trump you know complaining about. NAFTA and saying make a deal with Canada that's great and so I think you know there's there's kind of been a little bit of tension there between the Trump administration will pay Back there So what's next So you know still candidates says, and even, Mexico you know this is. A trilateral deal we want to try and keep this NAFTA as. A trilateral agreement so one element of this is that some people are thinking about is that the Trump administration would wanna get Mexico onboard with a. Deal over autos like I said earlier is a really tough a tough. Nut to crack and once he has Mexico on, board with it hoping to, draw in Canada, then, in say look we've we've agreed between the US and Mexico over one of the hardest, issues are, you you know put. It on them are you going to get on board with? This as, well you know there's some more talks that Mexican economy minister is going to be here later. In the weeks definitely going to find out whether they can. Actually achieve, that you know it's still very much a. Work in progress and I think from there we're gonna have to see what the strategy is from the US Mexican candidate to try and keep this deal together as a. Three, part deal Sarah thanks for bringing us up to speed on all. Of this ceremony, Gregor Bloomberg news economic. Policy team.
