Hitman 3 Review Round-Up
"Hitman three reviews are and the embargo has lifted. As i let you know. I love you eco. Exo right now has our impressions of roger corner here from kinda funny is already beaten hitman and then it was me and bless you talking about our initial impressions in review so far but the metacritic as it stands which were not and of course is at eighty eight. This is as eight or nine. Am this morning Games beat gave five out of five. Jeffey grub grub rights hitman works because developer iowa interactive bills the games as predictable and rigid machines and as players. We control the key to this machine in asian. Forty-seven io's job is to make sure that when players insert forty seven into this massive cogs moving parts that other parts of the machine awaken in present new opportunities for creativity hitman three in particular works because this machine is more intricate and fund to explore than ever thanks to its incredible levels overnight over an idea dot com luke riley gave it a nine point zero and wrote rich will warning in highly reliable. Hit man three is a superb installment of i os idiosyncratic and much but much love style series. The fundamentals haven't changed since two thousand sixteen but it's collection of outstanding maps for a refined reliable in robust curtain. Closer to the current hitman trilogy. Six maps may sound slim but each one is huge and designed to be played several times over. And even that. It's very unlikely you'll ha- you'll have uncovered all of its creative. It surprising assassination opportunities. There really isn't a week one in the bunch. This barcode butcher has made a lot of appearances over the past twenty years but hitman three is definitely one of his best and then at dual shockers. It got an eight point zero chris. Cornelius rights still the modular nature of each games. Entries means that all three play extremely similarly. Here's of course talk about the them so if you played hitman one or two already you know exactly what you're getting with three there's nothing new or groundbreaking here just honestly though that's perfectly fine for those who like this style of game. As the high quality of level design carries forward. You might not get a wholly original concept or sequel hit ansari. What you will get is the same intricate set of levels. Apply to new areas and concept's whether it's trying to uncover covert operatives in berlin berlin rave or a weaving through the secret passages in dartmoor mansion This these locales and their implementation really are treat. I mean out of jail with game. Play as much as i could have but i certainly loved exploring these areas in plumbing their secrets mr gary widow. What is your history with the hitman. Franchising where are you with hitman. Three my my My history with The hitman series intermittent played the since the very very first hitman gained back in to die. It's a franchise that has has come and gone and has at various different reboots and it seems like re in recent years. It's really coming to. It's the most recent iterations hitman year when they were rolling them out as episodes that was really really popular with people really likes them. I've always tried to get into them. And i've heard something about them just never quite connected with me and i think that's just more to do with that's less to do with the game's not being good games and more to do with him just being somehow like just incompatible with my own tastes gators off you no matter how but i feel i feel like that but not like in a big way is a big disconnect some like. I know. there's a game here that i would really enjoy. If i could just get into it. So i feel like this with this new hitman. Three is the perfect opportunity for me to give it like one more. I'm really gonna try. I'm really going to try to get into. I'm excited about it. I think my wife my About her favorite. Pop the assassin's creed. Games sneaking around us astern people. That's literally all you do so might be it might be hookup as well. I'm very keen to try. I'm also very glad patrick. Click onto the question for me. Hold on because. I think that question might lead into diego's question he wrote into patriots dot com slash. Kind of funny games says hi guys. First time longtime reviews for main three are out and largely positive. My question is simple as someone who never played one of these. Is it worth starting with three or their changes to the mechanics so minimal that maybe i should start with cheaper option of hitman to grabs me from their. Thanks much love. This is a big question. Not just the hitman to the back levels legacy stuff but is hit. Hit me in three a great jumping off point if you've never played before right. This is what you were talking about with club. We and we and we see this every time a big new game series brings out a game right like like one of the most commonly asked questions i've heard in the last year is like where do you start with for example the yakuza games. Many of the right should you. Can you start with like a dragon. You wanna stop zero. Always different ways to get into it. And so i'd every game is different right and every every series is different understand. Why the questions coming from right especially. Since i saw recently that i owe think tweeted something about it. Meant three being the the concluding chapter in a hitman. Trilogy edgy when i when i hear that that makes me a bit nervous like you wouldn't for example to just jump into light. Return of the jet is the first hours from the emerson right. Still be a great movie but a lot of stuff wouldn't make sense and you'd be a bit lost because you know it's picking up story threads been percolating through the previous two films. You would be like who's this guy share. What's going on. And on. I wanna you don't wanna have that feeling but i feel like these days especially we've really games when like years between games. It's it kind of behooves game developers to make sure each new game can function both as the continuation of what's come before legacy players but can also be on boarding can be an entry point for people like you as a game developer or published. You really know helping self if you say oh yeah. This is really only accessible to people who have already played hitman. Because you never gonna grow your your fan vice that what you've got to You you've you've got to have each game be an accessory. An accessible new entry point. And i was very glad to see. Patrick clinic. Asked the same questions anything's into similar position to me intrigued to try. The new one has spent a of time with hitman before. Certainly no up unlike the balaji in the lower. What's happening with like agent. Forty seven's store. I couldn't tell you a single fucking thing about agent forty seven and now he's a ball dude with a barcode on his on the back now and that's nice people is the. Is there much mortar. No probably any of it. But i was very glad to see this morning that apparently a lot of people had replied to patrick and the consensus. Yet you can just jump into say hitman three and whatever problems with like not knowing what's going on so that's what i'm gonna do. I also do have. The hitman wanted to legacy editions. That came whatever deluxe super duper pack. The i got so. I might try those as well but i'm just going to jump into three because that's going to be the one that is most optimized for next gen and like you know it's gonna it's gonna it's gonna have the most valuable learnings from one and two right and i think it's you and me. Gary have a very similar hitman story. Where i remember getting that i hitman. Ips two and bringing it home in popping it. It'd be like oh. This isn't what i thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be more like a metal gear at the time and so i fell off and so every man. That's come but let's talk specifically about this trilogy hitman one and two i pop on. I usually play the first map in the first couple mission. Maybe i into a couple of maybe one more. And i'm like i get it. I see what this game's doing it's not for me like something about it doesn't click and i'm right there with you of like. I know that there is a game there that i could get into but i've struggled to do it and so hit me three. I m coming in very much. And i've played on part of the review on. Ps i love you so far. I'm three missions into the six maps or whatever so there you go it. Was this idea that i'm playing it. I like it. But i don't and i don't and it's the hold up for me is in the over the you know. There's the individual individual maps with your targets and their intricate plots. And what to do. They're right over over. That is layered this the end of the trilogy story. That's happening right. And i think even for me starting at never having beaten hitman one or two but starting those games they do a great job of like. Here's what's happened in the previous games here. Who's these other two players. You're with our this is what's going on. Go for it.

Then they'll decide whether to expand to more restaurants or to provide lunch time delivery service, too. For NPR news. I'm Anne Wu.
"Once upon a time a boy named lucas fishing in around pond near his house he pulled his little canoe behind him rattling with his fishing pole and tackle box. The air had the first hints of chili fall but the sun still shown warm and bright glinting on the pond in the air leaves in sunset reds and oranges came spinning down to rest upon the murky water. The trees leaned half bear and shook in the breeze. Lucas was warm in his jeans and hoodie though and he pushed his little canoe off the shore. He hopped in and wobbled awkwardly. He found his balance sending out little ripples. In every direction the little boat glided into the water and he sat on the woven seat humming simple tune to himself and pulling out his rod and tackle. What's going to work today. He said to himself looking over his different lers. He had jitterbug and smelly kelly's spinners and spoons but for the little pond. His favourite had to be the plastic grub in pearly purple with practice hands. He attached the grub and a singer and then paddle gently into the middle of the pond. Here we go. He said to himself and he let his line fly. It was out over the water and then plopped in sinking into the murky depths. Lucas reeled in slowly enjoying the day and then cast it out again. It didn't bother him that he didn't catch anything for the first hour so he had been fishing enough to know that it was a sport of patience as much as anything else plus whatever he caught would be as dinner so he had all the motivation he needed. Lucas was laid back in the canoe whistling asong. When the line suddenly stretch tight this sean. He said with a wide grin. He grabbed the rod and pulled and started reeling. He could tell right away that it wasn't a very large fish but it had plenty of energy. It zipped back and forth under the water swimming the line this way. And that until lucas. Pulled it into the canoe shining and splashing. Gotcha he said. It was a little fish and would be barely worth eating still. It was something. Lucas bent down to scoop it into his cooler when the fish called out to him. Hey it said oh. Wait a minute. Lucas blinked down at. the fish. Did did you just talk to me. Yeah said the fish and you talk to me. What's the big deal Fair enough i guess. Lucas said bowing to the little fishes logic. So you really shouldn't eat me. The fish said it would just be a really bad idea.
Who Do You Want To Serve When You Grow Up?
"All right. So this is my thoughts hoping remind me Sharon from you but. We talked about. Inside of our community to talk about the fact that I believe. Each and every one of us is called to serve a group of people right? It's like I for me. I was called to serve entrepreneurs, right? So I figured I, who am I? To serve their entrepreneurs and then it's like. Well, there's a lot of entrepreneurs who remind my entrepreneurs, right my entrepreneurs funnel hackers, and they give them a name and a title. Belief in an all kind of stuff right? It was interesting because as I knew like, Oh, here's who heard. These are my people this is this is what I'm supposed to serve. Then everything else can really easy like then it was like, well, what are these people need? They need this this and the idea is the products, the Services Events, the coaching calls the podcast, all the things bike game easy when I first identified they who am I called the serve, and then giving those people in needs specific people saying I sort of entrepreneurs it's tough because. There's lot people from nurse. Now make fighting competing everybody else was not answer all entrepreneurs I, serve my entrepreneurship funnel hackers, right? and. So it's interesting though because I was talking today Some people and? There's a phrase that we hear all the time like when we're when we're kids, it's like, what do you want to be when you grow up people are going to be a dentist want to be a doctor I? WanNa be a football player I want to be we talk about who we want to be right but you think about like how we actually make money how actually start businesses it's not about who we wanna be is who we want to serve. Right. It's like this little thing it's sort of like with our kids ask them you want to be you want to be when you grow up or asking of the kids who graduate high school what do you WanNa be someday when you have to call it. What do you want to be i? Think the asked the question what would wanna be census on the wrong path I wanna be dentist dentist. Well, you gotta go to. School here, and then you go to school here and then all then you become a dentist and then you get your dental degree now able to clean people's teeth, right? Now you clean teeth. The questions like well, who do you serve and you're a Dentist they just like everybody probably right and it just put you on this long long long long long path that before you ever get to the real question, which is who you call the serve. Increase switching around like who do you want to survey? Who Your? Who's your tribe whose your whatever you WANNA call it right. So looking at that standpoint it changes everything right? It changes how you start looking at this business and starts changing all the different things. Question for you is you're starting this journey wherever you are is not. So it's like, would you wanna be when you grow up in and I've asked myself that a lot but it's like who do you WanNa serve grub right? Who is a group of people that you're the most passionate about who is the? Morning and be like, okay this is the group I get to serve it would it would change everything for you right and then if you have that, you have that person you figure out like what's your name for that group who your people then I all the ideas start flowing easier right I think when I first got started in this business. And I talked about this a little bit in the dotcom secrets book those who have read it. If you haven't read the new updated version by the way, please we'll get a promise getting updated one. But I talked about how? I started my business like what I was focusing on. I was like, what do I want to create rise they all WANNA create this product and this product again. The questions a lot people chase down, but it puts you in really weird path. I want to create a product that does this because I had to say I want to create a product that is this. So. From products I thought that was the path I start creating selling them and you luckily I was able to figure out the process started making money but it was they by default what I created. It attracted a certain audience right and because they didn't athlete who don't want to serve, I wouldn't want to create a crazy thing and then by default created attracted a certain type of people to me. Right it's like Bait it's like I'm on a Fisher but. One time I remember there's like different Bait right if I want to catch. The fish so embarrassing on a catch, a big fish oughta gets a trout or. Salmon or whatever there's different Bait right and the throughout throughout track's from fish to you K I've noticed that is actually true maybe estimated up but I think is if not, you guys get the same thing, the Bait you put out into the world attracts from people because I led with like what's the Bait? I WANNA create right with the idea have what's the Bait I started doing this or thrown This debate out not knowing what is going to track, and also it's like, oh my gosh, attracted trout and Mike Oh I actually hate trout right or hate salmon or whatever your your version of that in dotcom secrets book I talk about that how I woke up one day and I was laying in bed and I was like, I, wish I had a Boston he could fire because this is miserable and Not Enjoying this experience at all it was it was such a bad thing, right? And so. If you remember the default like what I shouldn't is shifted away from like we I want to create who want to serve a WHO is my dream customer a wish lead with that never did and most people don't we lead with what ought to be when I grow up what we want to create here's an idea hat right and all those things sent you WanNa path, but it's not a direct path. The Path is who don't want to serve. Then go find those people in theory actually need and how they want to be served right because you come in with the product that people don't actually want no one's going to buy it and then like it doesn't work for you right and you're frustrated all this business at work all migrated workweek you'll need to have great ideas business not being super hyper creative. That's not gonNA help you much will oversee so creative no, no, no, I'm not creative. I'd just really good at knowing exactly, I'm serving and I pay close attention they want that's it.
Ritchie Torres: From The Bronx to Congress
"Something, I was thinking about wall preparing to talk to you is about how everything and politics and our country right now is just trump obsessed. Does it feel to you like we are paying less attention to congressional races like yours? Yes, and no Donald Trump represents an existential threat to our planet and our democracy in our social contract. So naturally, he's going to be the focus of our politics, but you know the two not mutually exclusive Donald Trump is a racist relic of the past. And the new generation of leadership the rainbow wave that has swept United States represents the future. You can think about both because when represents the past than the other represents the future and the next election is essentially a choice between the two. Do we want to turn the clock back? Would we want to move forward with the terminology describing the Rainbow Wave? I get frustrated with that personally because I think the current congressional group has nine or ten out queer people when it comes like nine or ten to me doesn't make up a wave will by wave referring analytic congress immediate t buddha. Judges the first openly LGBTQ, Bible presidential candidate. You're about to have the highest congress industry of the United States and you have nearly a thousand openly, Algebra, two candidates for public office. At every level of government we've never seen a greater quantity or diverse to the LGBTQ representation among candidates running for public office, and that's a sign of Paris and these city and state legislators like yourself. Well, hopefully feed into these more national roles as well. Look I got my start as as a volunteer community board. And then I became a volunteer in the city council. So you have to start somewhere you growing up could not look at Congress and see someone like you somebody gay so an Afro Latino you also dropped out of college. About your biography do not make the quote, unquote typical politician and so i WanNa know did you know that there was a place for you in politics and if not when did that change I never thought as poor lgbtq kit of color from the Bronx that I will ever become a United States Congress I never had LGBTQ role models growing up by rope in public housing had no conception of a world beyond the immediate boundaries of my neighborhood. The first time I met in openly lgbtq person a teacher. Is the moment that inspired me to acknowledge my sexuality for the first time for the first seventeen years of my life I had no openly lgbtq role models in my life in the Bronx I led a sheltered life and so that was somebody you knew intimately teacher what about looking into like politics and saying L. politicians there. There were no real role models for me I saw no one. No I did not see myself in the people running for public office or holding public office. There was certainly no elegantly lgbtq people of color at the congressional level that I know of and and so I felt largely unrepresented and you know my my story begins with the poverty in the Bronx spent almost my life poverty raised by a single mother way to raise three children on minimum wage. which in the nineteen nineties was four dollars and twenty five cents an hour and I grew up in public housing in conditions of bold and mildew leaks lead without reliable. He didn't have water in the winter in my life something of a metaphor grubbing a public housing development right across the street from trump golf course. So as I saw the conditions in my own home, get worse every day the government had invested more than one hundred million dollars to construct the golf in honor of Donald Trump and I remember wondering to myself at the time. What is it say that our society is willing to invest more in a gated Gilded Golf Course Donald From Then in the homes of black and brown low income Americans, and so that experience has been quality is what inspired me to become housing organizer. And then eventually took the leap of faith and ran for public office was twenty four openly gay at no ties to the political machine no ties to the dynasties of Bronx politics but I wish young and energetic with the fighting spirit. And I knocked on thousands of doors went into people's homes. I heard their stories, it was one voter who said to me in the forty years I've been living in the Bronx. I've never had a candidate for public office knocked on my door. was those kinds of interactions at led me to win my first race in two thousand thirteen I became the first openly Q. elected official from the Bronx at several years before then I was at the lowest point I had dropped out of college. I was abusing substances struggling with depression or struggling with sexual identity crisis. I had lost my best friend to inaugurate overdose. They were moments when I even thought of taking my own life I felt as the world around me had collapsed. And then seven years. Later, I became the youngest elected official in the largest city in America, and now I'm about to become a United States congressman. For. The only home I've ever known the Bronx and so I often tell people, my story is the story of the rocks. It's a story of struggle, but also one of overcoming.

"grubs" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio
"Turns it on talk radio good afternoon to you for the rest of us on Facebook live thank you so much a lot of questions a lot of interaction today which we do appreciate it obviously talking we're talking about drugs and sex beneficial insects they want to so forth it is really hitting of the of the hearts of many people that are turned in today because a lot of stories going back and forth and people chiming in on their experiences with more talking about well there's a lot behind benefit beneficial insects are almost like its own gardening within itself like how people grow tomatoes right vegetables and have their insight on what soils that use will spread allies as they use how they do it is the same thing with beneficial insects how do you attract them into the yard so you keep them in the yard you know which ones do you use these are all things that gardeners do over the years right that you know help the garden so right now we're on drugs and how to cure them and I was saying that there's really not a lot of good products that you can buy that would kill grubs that you can use any vegetable garden or use near you adult fruit trees so you know with the beneficial nematodes are ways that you can use a safe natural product that chills all the grubs in the ground now I know we talk about and even though it's a lot in the show because Jimmy Mattel's are also something that affects a lot of vegetables but those are different an official name because whenever you know I see it when you're going to garden centers or ship people who really aren't sure what they're talking about that actually work there if you tell them you have any mental problems they often sell you beneficial nematodes and that they don't kill kill the bad name of tokes but one thing they do is who was I think it was Dale was asking yeah he said that he has flea beetles that are attacking his bok choy and wants to know how to get rid of him and one of the things that the beneficial nematodes do is kill the larval stage of the flea beetles in the soil right so that'll stop him from come becoming adults once they are adults if you've got in your vegetables the way to get rid of him Dale might be too first of all floating row covers would be great because that would keep them out and they would never get in there right and then also those sticky traps that you use for white flight yeah those are really haven't tracked into to them which is really nice yeah so so it's going to be traps are used as it was use those more those are good traps right you know the easy way to do it you don't just bring anything you just put it out there but the bugs stick to them and then not worry about it those are good those are good products to use but how do you so so how do you get these new windows in this person here's the funny thing about it right so when you get when you order me image shows or you go and buy new windows from a garden center you're buying a it should be refrigerated so if you're at a garden center should be it should be kept in the refrigerator a sponge you're buying a bunch you're gonna get this finds it a little bit of packed in a package they're gonna tell you to take that spines and put it in water and kind of bring out the spines in the water and like a watering can and then you simply just dispersed that water throughout the area that you have these grubs so you you can't see beneficial nematodes you don't even know if they're doing anything for you and tell you you know I I put up that picture of that group that was infected because right that's what you're going to sprinkling fairy dust just hoping his visually there is nothing that tells you these new windows are doing anything until you start to see that grow population die offs B. turn into that reddish color now you're starting to see that these drugs are being infected in the new measures and the cool thing about it is that they very rare that the materials will take over gardening kill all the grubs in it overnight so the population continues to grow once you introduced it throughout the season now I don't know if they carry over from season to season or if it's just something you kind of have to do a manually but I know that definitely through the growing season the name Intel's role do a good job of controlling the grub populations yeah so okay next question as we move down John and we've only been off topic well we had Christine wanted to recommend a blueberry if variety for port why Nini okay in Ventura county you can keep it in a pot or in the ground because yes I have two suggestions but based on what she's gonna keep it one oh one of both of them yeah so first of its upon which a recommendation sunshine sunshine below yeah as of this year given pop beautiful compact easy to grow in pots I was gonna recommend that for posts but yeah yeah what it no never what about on the ground I feel the o'neill because it gets very in the ground and I think that it'll do well up there you don't think so no I'm at yeah well heads o'neill is one of the older varieties and there's been a lot of new developments in sensor there's other ones that are better start or the other they came out with Tony I was charging jam or was it jul jul sure isn't that there isn't another one jewel or Joel's out in el Cajon maybe it is jam and then try to think of one without names or just want a way out I think that I'm in my opinion the best overall would be sunshine blue if you do grown men containers they're much easier to maintain peace of ground ground ground sensor below they're not going to get a stall so if you want you know bigger bushes then o'neill would be the one to use yeah does o'neill's need a pollinator I believe so okay because sunshine Lewis style in here but I mean the nice thing about some of those bigger varieties as they do get those really nice big three some that are almost the size of a quarter takes like two bites you know not in that and not that like you know I like sunshine because I I do like it because it's it produces a lot but they're all the smaller ones which are great but it's kind of fun to grow that bigger the bigger mail your truth you know as well and you know a lot of the new varieties were meant to grow kind of compact drinking they have a smaller fruit so the old varieties are the ones that you're gonna get the figure for victory will be south moon and his mistake one mistake yeah yeah France which is honestly for me south moon no but I can't quite yet there's one called south I'm never saw someone I think is one of the largest there they are the ones that are quarter size you know when I got to look for that one I was marketing I would use that don't grow misty for me very good absolutely okay Jesus got is third post up here right now we haven't heard from you in awhile then the only thing I can't type so he's trying to get his question out and I think I understand what he's saying now he he talked about the way that the plant is right so now he says he's got the the Fernie type growth there now and he says do I let them continue growing until they die out and start to come back or is there anything I'm supposed to do until the end you definitely want to leave the Ferney park grow because that's what builds up the root system so you get that big healthy spirits the following year and what you do cases water them and fertilize them just like a regular plant all through the growing season keep them nice and healthy the bigger those gaps in the health care they are the better your crop of asparagus will be and with this John seven ever grown them so you know when you're in the grocery store during certain times you're gonna see skinny little experience at a time you see that you know bigger thicker is very good are they are cool what do you need to keep them cool to get that or will because you know how for instance in southern California have a problem growing broccoli and things are gonna go to flower too quickly you don't get the full development but in cooler areas they grow in a nice you know larger heads in you know a bit more substance storm is that the same with this very city growing cooler or does that not matter for them because they're under soil so much it's more they only grow in the spring that's the first thing that comes up is the the roots of the yes put that spear and that's where the firm develops from if you don't cut it off so then once you're talking about are the very same people try to sell the avocados that haven't been pollinated in their little tiny ha ha I think that's an asparagus is the same way as just like they're not ready they're not healthy okay so let's market to market him is really yeah I mean if you've ever tasted just my opinion I don't think those taste anywhere near as good as like I see them you know and I'm and I'm just my my kids love them.
Boom Towns and a bit more
"June between stores with a strange unexplained. I'll be traveling across Oregon listening, ghost towns old mines destination Cornucopia many ghost towns were built during what was referred to as a boom and bust period, some of these towns sprung up around mines were the national product of Westward Movement of the ghost towns, still standing Moshe rose and fell in the mid eighteen eighty S. it's fun and often educational visit. Visit these remnants of a bygone era ghost towns range from having a single structure to what remains of an entire town with dozens of buildings, primitive foundation, overgrown neglected graveyards linger. If you know where to luck, some towns were nothing more than ten cities with only a couple of wooden structures, decades of exploration for gold, silver lead, and even copper left thousands of abandoned mines and goes towns across the thirteen western states, and they all high tales of rough and ready bygone time. Time was stories to be told for me. This look at minds and ghost town his personal. My father was a baby of nine. He was born hundred eleven years ago and was raised in a log cabin, his father, my grandfather foreign, before the civil war, migrated westward movement from Wisconsin to Montana in a covered wagon there he grub stake, the parcel of land supported his family of nine from the Goldie took out of the bigfoot mine to honor that heritage, my first ghost. Ghost town tail is about Castle Montana. The main street of Castle rated eighteen, ninety, one with a population of about fifteen hundred habitants, the result of influx of miners, barkeeps prostitutes to keep them service when they were having a very good day at the mine topped the population at his peak at about twenty, five hundred, there was a school that jail brothels this many as fourteen saloons, the best new residents was calamity Jane a Frontiers Woman Alcoholic Indian fighter and sometimes prostitute.

Law firm targeted by hackers says Trump was never a client
"So hackers who launched a massive cyberattack on the New York law firm of prominent entertainment lawyer. Alan Grubman are now threatening to release dirt on Donald Trump if their ransom demands aren't met now. This is a little bit weird so so just bear with me as explain this. The hackers are known as revival are evil R. E. V. I l. claim to have stolen confidential files on GRUB and celebrity clients like Elton John Lady Gaga Madonna and have doubled their ransom demand to forty two million dollars. They also claim to have damning information on the president and say that will be made public in a week if they don't receive the random but it's not clear what information they have on trump who's not represented by Grubman. There's no real connection on how those two are related together but hackers are telling the president. You better urged Grubman pay that forty two million of you. Don't want this information released about you. So far GRUBS law firm said it will not negotiate with these hackers. The FBI is investigating the case as an act of international
Uber is discussing a takeover deal with Grubhub
"Uber. Making a bid for GRUB and shares of GRUB hub ended on Tuesday up nearly thirty percent down a little bit today but these conversations are ongoing before we get into the particulars. What what was your reaction when you saw that because mine was there are some acquisitions that in the moment you look at them and you think to yourself. Well that makes perfect sense for me. This isn't one of them. But what do you think? Well I don't know if it's something I would say makes perfect sense but I do see the connection there. I mean I certainly see why Uber would be thinking in this direction in and I think that for rub this this could be. Maybe the best way out. I mean the economics food delivery a really tough we've certainly seen that in grubs margins and financial since it's been a publicly traded company and in unfortunately it's not a market that really rewards exclusive relationships. I mean people are just looking to get their food from point. A. Point B. in restaurants. WanNa be able to do that and make sure they can rely on the partners that are delivering that food. So for me like I as I said this is not a market that rewards exclusive relationship so we saw for example when shake shack. Release their earnings here last week. They had exited an exclusive relationship. With GRUB HUB in. We're utilizing more partners. Uber eats be one of those from the restaurants perspective. You know they want to try and bring as many of those partners as they can as they can but it is it is it is. It is a market where you're certainly seeing consolidation. Almost needs to happen because otherwise it's going. It's going to be really difficult for a lot of players to be successful in space. You could see where maybe a couple of players could be successful successful in this space in. I think that with with Uber. We've always asked the question. How ARE THEY GONNA? Levers that network beyond just you know shuttling. People around in Uber eats is definitely one of the ways to do that. Uber eats is certainly performing pretty. Well I mean in in quarter one. They generated four point. Seven billion dollars in gross bookings that was up. Fifty fifty four percent from a year ago in revenues accelerating in that line of work take rates are accelerating as well so. I mean. They're seeing a lot of success for obvious reasons right now. I mean folks are are looking to have more food delivered But but I think with with GRUB HUB. This might just represent the best opportunity for the business and for shareholders because otherwise. They're going to be stuck in this perpetual battle for very very incremental prophets. Right I mean it. It is just not a super high margin business and you know for restaurants they delivery now more than ever So I think I think that will probably continue on for some time. But it's definitely a space where consolidation is starting to happen in. I actually could see grub hub in Uber getting together there in creating really a massive food delivery network that even really extends beyond restaurants right. I mean Breezes Inc Grocery for example they have I think what four thousand parts and thirty five countries with with Comey's car for for example at Cisco I mean they're leveraging that network in good ways and I think this is a sign of things that could a sign of things to come for Uber? That could be good. I mean it's obviously still hemorrhaging cash. And they're gonNA raise some more debt. It sounds like but if this is a deal that happens. It sounds like it'd be an all stock deal another kind of hemming and over the valuation. But I wouldn't be surprised to see this happen. It's funny. You mentioned that talking with our colleague Abby Malan and she's a grow up shareholder and she made it very clear to me. She's not interested in Uber Stock. She was happy to see the spike. In growth hub shares. She would much rather prefer this. Be A cash deal. Because she's not looking for Uber Stock. But it'll be interesting to say to see how the valuation shakes out here because right now with this spike and a little bit of a pullback today grubs valuation is five point three billion. They've said they would sell at evaluation of six point. One billion so that's another fifteen percent upside from. Where is here? It is and you know I mean. These companies will go through negotiations to try to figure out what makes the most sense and that's kind of Nice part about all stock transactions for the come from the company's perspective right. They're essentially just they don't have to dole out physical currency right. I mean shares are currency. But it's not really affecting their pocketbook. Investors are kind of the ones that potentially at screwed there and in. I do feel like Abbie. I agree with that. I'm not really interested in an Uber. Uber's stock today. I mean I think it's a fascinating business to follow. I'm cautiously optimistic. That they will be able to leverage that network overtime in do more things with it. But I think it's GonNa take a while in they clearly. It's GonNa take a long time for them to even achieve any meaningful profitability. So yeah I mean from from the company's perspective that all started you'll makes perfect sense from the investors perspective. Yes I'm a shareholder in this ends up happening then I get you know those. Those Uber Uber shares. For that deal. I probably would look at it going ahead and selling those uber shares and putting that money to work elsewhere. Because any way you put it I mean food deliveries just. It's just a really tough business. I mean we saw not all that long ago we're square on loaded the The caviar side of the business right I mean they. They dipped a toe in that market thinking that might be something complementary to their business. It turned out it really wasn't turns out. It's just really hard work. It wasn't something that lined up or leveraged their existing business to the degree they felt like made sense in so I think yeah I mean this kind of it makes me think a little bit of satellite radio in your head series. Xm and Yeah Sirius Radio and yet XM radio and then they merged to form the one big provider in that space. I mean I ultimately could could honestly see being just like a one or two really big providers in the space but time will tell.
Uber Technologies Makes Takeover Approach to Grubhub
"Was uber technologies bringing seven hundred fifty million dollars of bonds after reports that they were interested in buying grub hub and some people view this is a positive people were looking for consolidation in the food delivery space and sort of the scale being the key component to survival at the same time it also points to a world of hurt for uber as people just don't take cars anywhere anymore in the same way that they did before the pandemic Dave yeah that's it I mean you put it all together and you can understand you know why they would need to go to the markets and maybe even talk about how they figured that they would end the year with billions of dollars so wasn't like a distress situation at least from the way they present in the past as it has been with a lot of other companies then I'll just note uber's actually little changed at this point in light of the sale and grandpa which had quite the move yesterday was up twenty nine percent after we and others reported on the potential deal it's down about two and a half percent

"grubs" Discussed on Humans Helping Humans
"From one there Depending on what the insect is they have as high protein count in good fats. Anything else will. Typically we bring us like little Metrics little tools for people to measure by like we'll have a half cup ground you know and say this is equivalent to a four ounce chicken breast you know so we actually visually demonstrate for people would look like how. How's the Clinton meal? You don't just eat a chicken breast for dinner so you don't just eat you know half a cup of grubs for dinner. You complimented with other things. And so that's when the tastings become helpful or sample products become helpful and Mike. Just treat it like anything else is just another input into what you eat. That is really cool. I feel like visuals and different methods of learning always bridge the gap in further people's understanding of any concept. Next one they have no future as a food source. Here it's been ten years. Why would they become a main source of livestock? Now again they are eaten all around the world. Just not here. I show this with people a friend of mine from Singapore. He's like hey you know. We didn't always eat insects. We didn't necessarily because we're like. Let me check out the Silkworm heels. In some cases it was passed was eating crops. And there's another way to get rid of it and so they're like just eat it. You know so then. It became part of cuisine over time. And we're just like any other food you know that's when we break out things about food history like about the lobsters or Sushi and other things of how food over the centuries has changed over time. There are places where cows are sacred in. Don't eat them so they think that Westerners are absolutely disgusting. We eat them in groves in our country and so there are other countries. Who Don't you know so it's about perception it's about socializations? We try to introduce all of those different examples for people so they see how foods look around the world and just how they've changed over time for us and so now is the time to think about insects. I'm glad you brought up the stigma eating bugs. I feel like a lot of times. When there's a new concept that being introduced a has to be invited by someone or something mainstream such as veganism It really blew up when my Walk Flock a russell. Simmons Spoke About veganism and that's one of the reasons why that that amazing restaurants lead Vegan owned by Pinky has blown up has been mainstream and it's been more socially acceptable as a concept more but regular thing and now that we figure like Nicole Kidman eating it and a restaurant tour like Alex. Atala serving it. I'm sure the stigma is slowly dissolving. Already in just in case you don't know what I'm talking about. Slutty Vegan is on. Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard. South I believe near the KIPP. Strive Academy near Westview. You guys need to go It's going to be looking our way. Though and I recommend phone their instagram in falling their future ground. That will cut the wait time and a half. Their beacon is incredible tastes like the Justice Aggressively Bacon. It's Vegan Matisse like Procurer Bacon and also the Nicole Kidman thing I recommend everyone to watch it'll kinda desensitize you about eating bugs. She eats this four course meal of bugs for Vanity Fair. It's on Youtube called the secret talent theater and she eats these bugs as if they're like little chips. It's so cute. I mean seriously you? You'd WANNA eat bugs after that makes it so appetizing. Yes I work. You can't eat them like chips but you know recent will say to you too. Sometimes people make you never know what people are doing behind closed doors. You assume that no one in this country has ever or doesn't eat them. You don't know that for certain. Like if you say like now just met me like you know some people make you've seen me millions of times. You never imagined that. That's we're up at home. So that's an assumption of really large assumption. That people may just because it's not part of mainstream but you know it's funny when you mentioned that we've had a couple of quite a few occasions actually where you know we're in different places in. We're talking about the product where she earned and then I'll have someone come up once. The crowd has dispersed in Saint. Paul you know when I go home or when I go back to my country I do eat them but they won't dare say it out loud at the table when other people around so I thought that was interesting. So they're very much is a stigma. Still that has to be dispelled. Here is another assumption. People make about eating bugs. They feels the bugs are dirty. Of course that's meth. But how do you dispel that notion so again because we are growing it as a micro livestock or commodity I don't know if I can go to our say crop but as a commodity like anything else it has food safety standards you know. There is a process around it. There are some soft regulations. I don't think. Usda and FDA figured it out quite yet and we had to work really closely with Joy Department of ag you know to get are licensed to sell it for human consumption. So thing is like anything else. You wouldn't just pick up a random chicken off the road known. Eat It. You're entrusting you know that you're buying it from a credible source that they there's a control is being grown in a controlled environment. You know that there are protocols processes around keeping it safe from Shan so we don't treat it any differently than do any other traditional livestock or vegetation or anything else that you put in your mouth so we're like yeah don't advise you pick up a grab from a piece of wood. You WanNa get it from a certified supplier you know what? You just made me curious. What IS THE PROCESS. Like behind becoming a terrified supplier of grapes for now an in. Georgia? I can't speak to to other states because I think it may vary for us. We had to be very explicit about our business plan how we processed it you know. In the beginning were sourcing it from another supplier codes. They had to be. Fda certified that you know they're feeding it a certain thing wearing it growing in a certain way just like a livestock to say where we're getting it from our growing it and then when we want to quote unquote process it in that be roasting it cooking in some form or modifying it until powder we actually do have to go into the shared kitchen or have a dedicated facility so it's no different than any other food right now. So we have to go to manufacturing plant produce that product and then sell it through various channels so we had to get a business license like any other business again because it doesn't consume a lot of resources is not very large. We didn't have to get the same type of licensing that you would if you wanted to have a cow on your backyard so again. That's one of the conveniences physically just being so much smaller and you just having more versatility and what you can feed it. You know how you can re-re though you answered. That was very structural and ordinary. It's almost as if you were describing. How beef jerky comes about. Yeah you know we do get a license. We raise the cows. We use the leftovers instead of making it steak. We use a scripts to dry mouth and make jerky and season it and go through the FDA like for some reason. I thought the process was going to be very foreign lengthy and complicated process because they were groups. Yes and that's where the demonstrations definitely come into play. We talk about dispelling the myths. And they're like that's it. That's all your energy. I'm like yeah. We're not like slicing each one individually in pushing something out of McKenna. That's it we're done. You can eat it though. The way described them makes me more inclined to eat them rather than eating other livestock proteins number. One reducing my carbon footprint but also all those other animals. I've seen them before. Live and thrive. So I can't help but think about their cries for help as a eat a delicious rare steak which makes me feel pretty guilty But there's been no statement from any formal studies of grubs hitting that they do in fact feel pain so yeah I might eat more grubs and put them in my diet and we do like we humanely and I say air quotes he mainly because again you know unless there's until there's more data. We don't think they interpreter perceived pain the same way that we do. We put our we hibernate them. We freeze them like once they get below a certain temperature the kind of naturally go into hibernation. You think about a bear in your and then eventually are denies. D- so we do it that way versus just putting them lab in the Pan and fry them up so we hope that we're killing them humanely and you have to do it up to so many hours because they'd again are quite resilient so they will thaw out now. Let the yawned. They're they're awake say. Do you have to freeze them? Up to some of the hours so we do have a really detailed business plan about how e process them rear them in process them. While you all have done your research that is super detail. So this is the final myth buster segment. This is what people often say making insects. A main protein won't make an actual impact on climate. Change at all. Yeah absolutely not true. You know and this is where consumers definitely come into play the more sustainable foods in Wednesday sustainable new in terms of what are the inputs. How many inputs go into the maintenance or production and of that micro labs docker livestock and general whatever it is also the supply chain you know how many trucks running in distributing this to how often people are consuming and how they're consuming it? It very much can help. Be One of the contributing factors it by itself won't won't teams won't resolve all of the climate change issues but indefinite can be a contributing factor and that the supply chain lessons with the production of something that is smaller and more energy-efficient and satiate you more so you don't require as much so it absolutely can help in so that means that other proteins that are produced that may require more resources. There's less demand for those and so they're contributing factors are lessened so it actually can become a contributing factor but consumers can drive back to. That's working so it's not just as manufacturing as consumers who drive that demand for that can help. So I saw an image of you and Sara Blakely from the Sara Blakely Foundation also the founder of spinks as well as an image of row hit from center for Civic Innovation. Can you tell us a little bit more about the program How that program has empowered you and major business better than what it is today. Yes I am. A current will we call residents. I think they're changing about two fellows to get Abbas twenty eighteen twenty nineteen center civic innovation fellow and they are.
"grubs" Discussed on Humans Helping Humans
"But we're not taking it into account what it really means what it truly means within either management or within a company corporations. That message is still lost. You know and I just looked up that book So I can add it to the slew of books that I'm holding in my room. The new urban crisis our cities are increasing inequality deepening segregation and failing the middle class. And what we can do about it. That book is by Richard Florida. Wow what name. Richard Florida I mean. It's really great that you mentioned that because honestly Atlanta in New York are considered melting pots within this country. They're like huge melting pots variety. People in yet we are honestly both the most segregated in our own way in our cities. Like I mean look at Manhattan Look at Brooklyn Unity Maine and look at Atlanta and Chattahoochee hills or peachtree city. And it's just like you don't really think about it but then when you look at it at an economic standpoint or cultural social standpoint you can't help but notice those little nuances of community. Yes and we feel that grubbs bring people together is definitely you know. It's funny like people from all walks of life. You know what I am. Glad you bring that up because we get the question all the time. Well who's your target audience? You know what do they look like in so we used to be really timid about saying it and we're getting bolder as we get more data and we're like you know? Why the tipple coal demographics the typical stratification that people use to figure out a target audience. We don't think apply to us. You know it's not necessarily eighteen to twenty five or thirty five forty five black women or Latino or white women the WHO who frequent these places. It's basically anyone who has certain type of eating styles are eating habits or person who thinks a certain way like our demographic is different in. It doesn't fit like the current models. I think we've been using for the last twenty thirty years so we've had a millionaire and someone who had twenty thousand dollars who is sitting together going. Okay we're GONNA try it together. You know so it actually was kind of something that brought people together. Glad you mentioned that because when I saw your business on Instagram I thought who are they marketing to? I watched some entomology documentaries and who is buying this in the U. S. like I'm interested because I am an experimental eater but I was trying to figure out the age the raise like just imagining a group of people that are your regular customers. I just couldn't figure it out in a ended up watching a short video of a British guy eating ants in Asia. And I still wasn't convinced that was your demographic. A lot of people are afraid of stating that they have new target audience because in a lot of cases there is no one person or one group that represents your target audience but a lot of people feel as though if they were to say that. It's like you're unprepared or they haven't done enough research. Yeah Yeah we're like you know. We thought you know foolishly. It's gotTA BE WHITE WOMEN. Who are twin by two forty five you know and every was down with that. Everybody was cool with that. We're like no. It is actually not white women who are forty five. We're like there. Are you know so far? Majority women of Color in and again. It's just anybody you know. We've had kids pick pick a race. Yep picnics races. Yeah you know picking an older age younger age. Yep All above which have all of the boxes. So we're like okay. We need to look at this differently. Is it people who have certain eating habits you know? Certain tastes are. Is it people who think a certain way of behavior certain way who would try this yet especially since your market is new in? It's not as normalized as other markets. It's hard to look at other businesses. That are similar to yours and look at demographics. Because I don't think there's going to become an alley there so it's just all up in the air. Let's move on and let's play a round of mythbusters grabs edition. Yes so stop you before continuing mythbusters if I may Lisa very quickly earlier when you're asking about you know are we in competition with agriculture. How do we see ourselves in that market? One thing. I think that gets ignored wall and we'll see gets ignored but I haven't heard mentioned a lot of times when people are talking about at a Mafia you know in western culture. How view bugs as we very much been condition and socialize? Ac- bugs as best. Not that they have much ecological value at all bs for as much as a contribute to what happens with climate change. I remember a kid. You see an insect your your your kill it kill it you know and so we carry that over to eating. So there's no way I can make the transition to see. This is something that is going to sustain me. Be Nutritious because I've been told my whole life to kill it from exterminators you know so when you're talking about who are you in the market with we actually to send degree become competitor for extermination companies. Because we're saying no don't kill them grow them do something different with them so just kind of the think about that to you and how. Westernized Cultures Now. How we deal with past we. We see a cockroach we step on it. You know we see a spider. We smash it with the shoe. We don't think that this insect contributes to our food system or just aren't ecological system in some form or fashion and to how we live our lives. I'm glad you mentioned that because we often forget to begin questions with this one important word or just beginning conversation with this one important word which is why. Why are you frayed? Why are you angry? Why won't you try this as well as the reason behind it? If you think eating insects is gross you may be. In the cultural minority drought history. People have relish in sexist food. Today many culture still do many types of insects appear on Menus today across Africa Asia Latin America despite its popularity at least half of the world's eating in sex's still rare not to mention taboo in the US and Europe. One reason is that after Europe started to cultivate land in sex were seen as destroyers of crops rather than source of food because we invested in livestock and so in became the enemy. This information is from David. George Gordon Biologists and the author of the Book Cookbook. So if you think about many Westerners readily consume shrimp and lobster along with in stors but shrimp and lobster which like insects are arthropods. In other cultures they see shrimp lobster pork and reject them as dirty. I love that you mentioned that how we look at food is also how we're raised so if we were raised to see them as pests we probably still do today and it makes it difficult to rewire our brain and to think of them as a resource rather than a past even now. When I take a shower I see a daddy long legs spider in the corner and have to remind myself that spiders there to eat house flies and believe in the rational idea of the spider trying to lay eggs in my ears right. Yes yes the harp pitchers so we do. So my partner. He's really good about you. Know when you talk about more. Educating people are sharing with people as they're eating the food or considering you know to like hey this is a way you can live in harmony with insects. You're eating them you know but Living in harmony with Camin different things in this is one of them. Yeah absolutely but harmony with wasps. I am so ready for whoever is going to figure out how to make wasps useful and may who knows. Maybe they will be the new weapon of choice. I don't know we might try something with Wasp you may. You may have sparked something in me. I'M GONNA I'm GONNA take them. La Yeah please. Maybe guys will make wasps the equivalent to blowfish in Sushi. Maybe they will be the blowfish Sushi equivalent in entomology. So as an advocate for entomology. I'm sure you have a bunch of practice with rebuttal with people about the method of entomology. So here's the first rebuttal Cashman. Why would I eat bugs? They are disgusting and have texture issues. They are diverse like anything elements in. So how do you know if you haven't tried it? What the texture is when you say growth. What do you mean? Can you expound? On that further I fifteen year old finds liver gross so totally know what you mean But you know we talked about. Insects is in the same manner. So those kind of things that we asked people That's very good so if people were to say it's like gooey or like I don't like the crunch how. How do you respond to that? This is before after. They tried it before before. So we say again. How do you know if you haven't tried? Lia It's going or ensures country and then I'll eat one a mental. Yes it's so typically when we ask people that question they do. Stop the go. Yeah I'm like if you're telling me you don't eat them but you've already determined what they're gonNA taste leg at powder. Those two things go together the second one would be. They can only be a snack. They're not really a meal. They're like chips. They aren't as substantial or filling as steak or chicken. Were like not true? One.

"We'll still do special events in catering and things like that but our thing is as you said earlier you know supplying net raw material to people to make things out of jail than taking the profits from no cells in actually splitting it back with original producer of the GRUB so like cooperative type models. What we're looking at and that make sense okay. So those who are interested in making extra income they have the opportunity to produce grubs which will also be another skill. Set that they'll learn but it won't be too high maintenance and not only that you will also teach them how to manage the farm. That's great so your farm is what I saw on instagram. That storage container. That you're welding. Yes so that's it and so we have. We have like a manual of physical one. But we're going to migrate into that space but the thing is it's like we don't want someone to just be a consumer our product. You know we want someone. Let's SAY WESTON THEY WANNA learn how to produce them on their own for their own personal consumption or they WANNA learn how to produce them to give to us is essential manufacturer processor that one hundred or fifty dollars at the get back as a result of a sale. We split the profit that actually puts money or income back into their household. That is something they can do something with. So I noticed that in a lot of your posts you put the Hashtag. Sustainable Habitat Design. What exactly does that entail? And how does that relate to your farming very keen Alisa? I love you. You're really sharp alike very observant you so my partner. Ni- Gosh it's been ten years now. Ten years ago like Out and and Westchester were like where do you WanNa be you know ten fifteen years out until sustainable habitat design was like something born out of trying to create like this three hundred sixty degree type facility? Doing you know sustainable designs for people in their backyard. Anything from rain catchment systems. Two Zero Waste Gardens and composting all those things and so we were able to. Kinda take sustainable habitat designs as we're learning to fabricate out this container weeded not expect Lisa to learn how to weld and grind. There is a friend who was kind enough to let us use his space in his materials. And also some of his crew to help fabricate out the container but they didn't have enough times. They're like you're GONNA have to learn how to do your cells more. Let what don't know we could just pay you ED. So he showed us he and his crew showed has had like do some things that are only three steel and so now feel comfortable enough to kind of fold like consultation had kind of bootstrap build out your own container under sustainable habitat designed. We're going to have some really cool stuff. This container solar lighting again. The IOT peas were reusing. A lot of the metal. We cut out of the windows or something else. And you'll just have to come out to the site to see it. But we want that container to be fully sustainable. What we've been with. The GRUB sustain their own energy and heat so we'll be doing some really cool stuff so that's what sustainable habitat designers. That's really fresh. I've seen a lot of images posted about residential shipping containers. I think I even saw one shipping container coffee shop on the west side. So shout out to Brash for sustainable sustainable businesses. I'm bill bunch popping up Pittsburgh yards all kinds of places now are starting to use them for office space in other things here. Yeah we are a little late to the game though. But I'm glad that we started at all especially since we gentrification everywhere with those two thousand dollars a month condominiums it's nice change to see Atlanta also trying to make and I tend to be a smarter city having more shipping container buildings because it represents innovation durability the practice of repurposing sustainability a possible new hope or an entry way to provide accessible or forty housing for the community precisely precisely in keeping with that. We definitely you're going have a coming soon. We finally got through the windows in once. They're installed can kinda fast track. Everything else will be doing. A Call to action for volunteers. Anyone who wants to come out have bow and be a part of it. We definitely want to create a sense of community so we asked people to look out for that information as well. Volunter dates coming up. Oh Wow so. We can be part of the process of building the farm and the shipping container. Yes yes this is our container. Yes I am so forgive. Ot will definitely see me there. Also earlier you mentioned that you are trying to reach urban communities like West End and rural communities and educate and train them on producing grubs to gain extra income households. How do you sell the idea of that or educate these communities that come from fruit? Deserts her you. Normalizing the producing of micro livestock in consuming and cooking. It like it's an ordinary thing speaking to these communities that are high diabetes hypertension cholesterol. It's already difficult to reintroduce fruits and produce because of the habits or personal behavior that they had bill after not having the resources to have those types of items or just because of the distance or lack of public transportation. You're not only introducing something healthy but you're also introducing grabs. Yeah so it's just relationships and just meeting people where they're at And just normalizing in emperors and again it goes back to you presenting it and approaching it in a way. No your audience. That's a big thing so a lot of times people WANNA go into communities and present the way they want to present and And having done research don't have any ties having relationships with people in that community. And it's like why would they trust you? You know so In what are you doing that community? So you know my partner. He works in West. It you know so. He knows quite a few people there. I used to live in Weston and it's not just west in an from the country you know. So the way that we relate in rural areas is different languages different and so you need to appreciate that value that and if people feel as you've value their presents you value their cultural and experience and you and you've taken the time to understand it in. We don't necessarily walk alone when we're going to certain schools are community events to present it. You know Ami to have someone who already has a vested interest in that community that someone who already has that built in trust who can verify. Give me credibility as I'm going in to introduce it and it needs to be fun. You know it does not need to be a burger with a meal on top of it that is not attractive for people you know and said that's not something we should push down people's throats you know so again. We go back to the cookie. A FLAT BRAND. Something people are already eating and just modified a little bit. Seems to go over her. You know in spades so we were at the east point farmers market and so if people feel that you really know what the heck you're talking about you're really passionate about this in your all in They're more apt to sample the product and they're more apt to come back and so we've had a lot of people who would encourage people who walked into the table. Tried it and way. Actually this is pretty good. You should try it and so when people in some of my mentors are like what are you going to get into eat with already eating it? You know so you know. We have proven numbers and again is just meeting. People where they're at and valuing people's culture and presenting it and that way versus trying to bring it in the way we want to bring it in right so investing within the community being in the community in participating within the community trying to meet halfway with both fees are so important also. Just you being able to provide symbols such great form of interaction and participation for something. That's a new topic for many. You mentioned earlier about how you absolutely have no plans to tear down the traditional livestock industry. But I'm curious how to GRUBBS affect the culture of agriculture and climate change because you are introducing new type protein and you source of nutrition. You are creating your own farm grabs and when people are looking at their diet or thinking about what? The consume like Vegetarians. Vegans people want to reduce their meat intake. These people are now learning about their choices and what they eat and how that ultimately affects the climate because over quarter or methane emission is actually livestock base. How do grubs effect that I for us? You know cream of talked about this at great length end. You know first and foremost were like. We're not anything all of the time. There's not a situation where we're eating meat every meal. You know. There's not a situation where we are not eating meat every meal And we're like everything is for every one just as someone. It's different types of meat or different types of vegetables. Grubs just something we're now introducing into that circle Not everyone's going to eat it not everyone's going to like it and that's okay. But at least they have they have an option. An additional option That's been introduced into the food system you know. For Agriculture traditional agriculture traditional livestock we introduce a micro livestock. It can be it can actually could be as a competitor or could be as a companion. You know so. There are some companies who are producing grubs in cricket and other insects on mass scales for feed. That is being used for traditional lifestyle. You know so. Instead of a farmer using a third of his corn field you know his corn crop to feed his his cows will his pigs. You know instead. He's GonNa use something. That's more energy-efficient which is a great powder gray feed or whole globally farms who've been really really helpful with as we started out Sharing Information and just being really supportive. They provide A chickenfeed you know. That's really popular. They used black soldier flies so their larvae is chicken feed so there are ways that agriculture traditional micro last can complement one another and be partners and collaborate But there are going to be cases we are of course inset protein is is coming after some of the market share. And it's no different from any other market you know be it a media streaming company or You know people were selling agricultural equipment. Any other type of market has competition. This is no different. So in terms of like reducing carbon reducing the footprint. Yes definitely Insects can help aid that And again you know the more people take it on. As a part of our everyday cuisine you know the more we can less than the need for our farmer in some cases to feel the need to have to produce as many cows as quickly as expensively And to help bring down some of the carbon footprint. I love how you stated that you can choose to be in competition and become rivals or cooperating and become companions and go hand in hand on the pathway to success in my opinion for capitalism to work. It doesn't have to be a win lose situation. There's plenty of opportunity for a win win. Yes yes definitely. There's this one bookham reading right now. Lisa the new urban crisis into the economist. I can't remember the author. You know like how he talks about Welsh hearing you know how he kept promoting this one kind of Capitalistic Model. In realized halfway through that he was wrong he was like. Oh my guy you know we need to give it actually is going to widen the inequality gap and so you know it talks about how the MORE UNEQUAL CITIES. Atlanta think is number one in the nation. The more unequal. The city is the larger the disparity between rich and poor. Actually the worse office. It he is the weakest link in the chain. If you will is not doing well you actually depress how quickly the city can grow. It is kind of interesting because people have the opposite notion of the more the ten percent a one percent have of wealth the better off the city will be in. Actually that's not. The case is actually the reserves so Atlanta has a responsibility. If we all want to continue to do well. You know if we want sustainable growth that we need to make certain that those who are the least served are being served better in the coming years. Yeah absolutely. You're only as strong as your weakest link and I think everyone's learned that lesson and yet we are still ignoring the message itself. It's so full of substance..

"Yes so we give that question all of the time. Not only just when we're doing interviews but even from customers who are begin. Vegetarian come to our table. Farmers markets are experts. And they're like can I eat this in? I don't know can you and I'm like you know so even had like Vegan vegetarian friends who were split down the middle one is like ABC going in eating it and others. You turn your back on the movement so you can tell me. She was like their begin to you know she plops one entire mouth so it depends that person's preference so for us. We're very clear about. We are not advocating for you. Know the destruction of all livestock farms. You know I grew up a one in a my livelihood in part growing up was attributed to wine are thing is is that ignored during that time frame they were small manageable family owned farms. They weren't huge conglomerate commercial farms. No pushing a lot of chemicals and pushing food faster you know because of food demand so the model looks very different now than it did twenty thirty years ago so with that we kinda let people make their own decision. We definitely provide full disclosure on We realize it's an animal so people are like well. It's not red blooded. You know for some Vegetarians like Willis Matt read me is still animal but you know kind of falls into a really different category in the eat it begins tend to probably walk a harder live where they're like you know what it's not A Red blooded animal. Were not sure it feels pain or not. We definitely know it reacts to Stimuli but whether it receives it in the same manner that we do we're not quite certain no but even with that were very humane in the way that we kind of euthanize them until we have more information. So that's kind of where land vegans those guys a hardcore vegetarians. They'll bend a little bit here turning your back on the move. That's so funny. So since you do sell grub chocolate chip cookies regularly. Do you get a lot of first timers that then become regulars. Yeah yeah so it's funny. How the brain works so when we started out we started out with a cookie in we get a little bad lash from that. Eating inside is not about eating sweets and desserts but we realized the psychology of food particularly particularly in the US in specifically in the southeast where we started out that house something looked you know how it smelled was what people were the two deciding factors for people before they decided to taste it so we introduced it in a chocolate chip cookies. Something that was friendly not intimidating. You know a lot more palatable. Something that barring had history with and people were more ample to taste the cookie knowing that above you know. It was enriched with insect pro team. As long as they didn't see it in its whole form you know and then thereafter was. They were kind of introduced to it. They're a little more more appetite to see it. In its whole form and as a result you know did become repeat customers in so you know we learned okay the happened in a powder form etc etc. So Yeah we do have definitely repeat customer. Some people prefer the GRUB cookies that will make for fairs and things like that over a regular chocolate chip. Cookie does have a different kind of texture and taste to it as more dense kind of more earthier richer taste. It's crazy to think that we are trying to make grubs more desirable in pleasing to the everyday person because people eat bugs. All around the world and Tomoefuji is a worldwide practice except for the Western World Cure a few examples which it he grabs eaten in Australia and the taste like chicken roasted meal. Worms are eaten in Africa Asia South America and the Netherlands and its flavor in texture is comparable to shrimp ant. Eggs are eaten in Mexico and Thailand in Mexico. They're also known as the Mex- can caviar eaten and Tacos and last but not least. Caterpillars are eaten in South Africa France Belgium. It's crazy that it's so strange for us in the US. It's taboo like you said the key. See the psychology. Food is so important has to be strategic introduced like in an aesthetically pleasing way if not in a nutritious but familiar fashion even those who own fine dining restaurants who the challenge of introducing entomology and trying to make it a common practice like Alex Atala Brazilian top chef and restaurant owner of them. He has a desert of raw pineapples with Amazonian ants as a topic when people tasted they often say tastes like pineapple in Cardamom. In there's not even cardamom on there we are so afraid of the unfamiliar and what people think if we eat something that is not customary. Where we're from the fact is everyone eats bugs. The FDA allows a certain amount and your peanut butter to your spinach to your yogurt. Even your candy. How do you think the red I got there? I mean for God's sakes we eat honey the most common continent that everyone probably has their household. And we don't realize that we're technically eating beef vomit. Yeah B- vomit. So Bee's collect nectar from flowers with their long tube shaped tongue and carry it in a special stomach designed for storing nectar snot in their digestive track. They have a special stomach so they have to. Enzymes are then introduced into the that assist with its conversion to honey wants a BS arrived back at the high. Honeys RE GIRJA tainted into a cell in the honeycomb. I think it's clever that you combined grubs with chocolate chip cookies and made chocolate chip cookies. Nutritious and yet it's familiar it's mythology. Everyone's had a chocolate chip cookie. Everyone's ready to try a different version of chocolate chip cookie. It isn't sound too outlandish. Ardennes part of cozine. Until we we have tastings with their really fond. There's one story that always stands out so at the first tasting we had we did like a four course menu the show people k. Hey this is how you can use it in a desert. You know this is how you use it. In an entree we did a Sushi. We did a TACO. We did a flat Brad. We did a muffin and so in the beginning one of the participants was like. Hey Don't mentioned the work rob like when you're giving it to me don't don't say mealworm just give me the item taste. You know we move forward in so by the end of the tasting. She's like Oh my God girl springs some grab my Taco. You know so it was funny. After she gone through couple courses how she wrapped her head around the perceived notion that it was going to be squishy or bidder or. Have this really weird. Aftertaste have been removed again because of the way we deal with food in the westernized world and she was kind of okay with it thereafter. So yeah that's very important so like you sit for restaurants which is our pivoted our company you know from okay. We test it out the cookie viability yet. Were able to prove to people locally that people will eat it in Atlanta and throughout the southeast so now in our gold. Our ultimate goal in our business plan is to become afar become a supplier. You know see we want to be a supplier of the input so you can use it for any type of food. It's the same way you do flour or Baking Soda. You can use it for whatever and also versatile enough and natural enough to also be used as feed if you so choose for your reptiles or birds are chickens and also put into your garden to grown. Oh so are you guys going to be the supplier the source of GRUBS? Yes we want to be the source. Are you guys going to do neither pop up that five course meal pop sounded scrumptious and totally be down for it? Yes yes yes yes so we are trying to do a pop up at the be careful. How a say because of the place that I'm doing. So we're doing a papa tasting call papa tasting so we're shooting for around mid December so that will be coming up soon. We'll be were revamping. Our website rebranding as for become the farm until November December fourteenth fifteenth is when we are cheating to do that and will be at the Culture Sal fermentation tap room there a Kabukicho Company and will be pairing it with their pooches. So you'll have a tasting to sample Impure it with a Khumbu awesome. I'll bring my friends. I don't think they can be too keen about eating grubs but maybe I'll use some buzzwords like gluten free. It's organic it's natural. It's pasture-raised maybe that will persuade them and make bugs a little bit more appealing for them. I love it soy bringing Gary Free. Yes yes but it's funny when you talk about that how people do grows and we say to people all the time. Their food has a history. The food is you know today Sometimes it not always exist or exist in the manner in which you know so we share fullbacks with people like hey lobster used to be considered prison food you know and today we consider it to be something that electric item are. Hey you're already eating bugs in these items today if you like Red Candy few like Eminem. 's You're probably eating. You know the excrement of this little bug you know. That's why it's red so we kind of share with people. You're already doing some things that you don't think you're doing you know so it's not such a great leap isn't as greatly as you may think. Hey you didn't eat Sushi twenty years ago and now you actually have restaurants dedicated to just Sushi Sushi sections in your grocery store. So of course we're open to change when it comes to food so we like to present it that way. Gotcha absolutely sorry. Are you guys going to just Be a farm for now and then do pop ups. Are you guys get into anything? Commercial like eventually sell boxes of grub cookies or anything like that so we are a social impact company. What we're looking at is becoming more of a decentralizing. The supply chain including people in supply chain So we're not looking necessarily to become another large conglomerate We're looking at you know. How do we truly move the needle or impact the community we actually are in Iot? Hdl recipient of city Atlanta's acting challenge in that will be running now through next year for about twelve months. Where fabricating out container farm and farm will allow us to like show case to people demonstrate to them but it looks like to run an insect farming container and infusing it with Itchy. Our Internet of things like little robotics sensors so so learning process for scattered data but also way for us to have a conversation of what we're trying to do. Which is hey you know. We will educate people on how to grow them. We will have producer farms if you will. So let's say in two or three communities will show people how to start their own farm. You know will come do consultation. Help manage it. And so they'll produce crowds for us. We'll bring them back into a central processor roasted or process it into powder and then buying customers accelerate retail or sell it wholesale sell it to bakers and chefs who will then proceed to make products out of it..

"In grubs that our whole roasted or milled into powder for human consumption. They can use as an input for food but they're also natural enough to use as a feed or fertilizer. My background I I home from a really small town in southwest Georgia was actually born in Durham North Carolina. On Duke's campus interesting enough. My parents were attending college. There got married and had me and then later on After a divorce. Muthu little small town called. Thomas Will Georgia which is about thirty minutes outside of Tallahassee Florida. And at that time my grandfather was still working his arm so actually spent the first formative years growing up on a farm. He raised traditional last. Saw chickens pigs cows and so I was very familiar within you know farm-to-table that was just life so fast. Four in I RELOCATE TO ATLANTA ATTEND. Emory got an ECON degree of really. Want to understand how money runs in then spent you know the traditional last twenty something years and finance and it and stumbled upon an Anthony Bourdain episode me and my partner he also went to. Emory's name was Kareem Nelson. He's now partner with me in the business and we were watching an episode of his visit to Haiti and we saw how people were suffering many years after the earthquake there and we also had some friends who are suffered were impacted by Hurricane Katrina and we started thinking about what we could do to feed people in the event of a catastrophic event in access to limited natural resources. Wow so live on the farm of sheer. You've had a bit of an encounter with bugs anyways also long live Anthony Bourdain. May he rest in power that just shows how much of an impact he had on people one episode of Haiti? And it reminded you of all your friends in New Orleans and influenced you to think of a method to provide substance without using something like army. Food packs a feed a huge group of people in their time of need. It's funny that you mentioned the army food because about half of my family is actually in the military it and so I have actually sampled those packets so when you talk about eating insects for us to journey was did it need to look like so we did. A lot of. We studied a lot of case studies at already out. There by professors out of Germany looked out some things that people were doing here locally. There are quite a few companies at that time of fifteen says. Some companies were two or three years already down the road in cultivating products with cricket powder particular such as companies like accenture and Chapel bitty fins world animosity and also all things bugs out of Athens and so I actually was going to order some crickets in my partner. Kareem in the beginning was like no. You'RE GONNA freak out if one jumps out of the box they're loud. They're smelly you know we're not going to have a bunch of those in the house instead. We checked out silkworms and looked at all kinds of different anzacs landed on grubs in particular because of their versatility in their resilience so literally ordered like five or ten thousand of them And my partner let me rear them in the House to actually kind of experiment you know. Test out the cases at been reading about them testing out what to feed them and what climate was ideal for them and testing out. Different farm kids in so we said. Yeah this is. This is the way to go on the fact that they didn't require some light because they burrow they didn't require direct access to water because they got it from food scraps out of starchy fruit and vegetable typically places where a lot of these events happen were hot and humid in they could they could withstand that up to you know a particular temperature and so there could be used for fertilizer. Their Fraz moult could be used for fertilizer ourselves. They were almost like zero waste to a certain degree in. So that's why we landed on that bug in particular okay so you didn't just pick them because they were nutritious but you put into thought that they were low maintenance and zero waste when breeding and managing them even their waste zero. As I didn't know that yeah and you know in the being cold natured. Of course they don't use acquire as much energy but we. We just found them to be like you said a lot more efficient but more versatile a lot more portable in also a lot easier to manage for people in the lower cost so when was your first encounter. Eating bugs was just then when you order them or was it before yes. I remember Middle School. Never forget it was in a social studies class. I think in the seventh or eighth grade in one of my friends sale. The town I grew up in flowers is a huge industry. They are the flowers family is from Thomas Ville and their makers. If you know arnold breads and things of that nature. That's them in..

So you'd have a glass keyboard and mouse area that just Ben's right up into the display away with everything else hidden in the little block that holds the whole thing up another take would be to do this with a hole at the bend rather than a and interactive area that you would pass a Mac book through and act as a duck so you basically give a bigger screen dear MAC book but you're still using the laptops keyboard. The glass could display. Could in that case before up and stored. Yup I'm GonNa let Apple Eliza company that values user experience design certainly. I can't think of like the way I wanNA use a laptop like converted to a monitor least least than like the Super Awkward Pass through. I'm like again. Maybe it's interesting idea. This is a concept car like I want to see this on a CBS show floor. This looks like an Ergonomic nightmare that you can't repair to see I fix it. Giving this point zero zero one scores. Oh we cracked all the glass. I'm sorry sorry I'm so sorry. It is a patent right so we shouldn't be too hard on it. The idea of made out of this is more attractive to me. I like you. I'm like that's kind of a nifty trick doc for a laptop but it might be a really cool form factor for desktop if you if you want an. I'm kind of situation haven't that whole thing. Be Glass. Looks Really Nice but again. I don't know what practical benefit that is. Especially if now I have to type on a piece of glass instead of an actual keyboard and just the idea that you know I mean apple has had had some keyboard issues in recent memory. I think we can all agree having that being part of theoretically something that you cannot easily aleve replace out of a giant expensive thousand dollars. Multi Thousand Dollar Computer is something fun of. Yeah I mean granted ranted repairability. Never Apple's first yes earn But I think people are just fascinated with this because it looks imminently doable right. We know you can do folded glass putting all the chips and everything in a box behind. That's a look at Intel neck. You you can do that so I think that makes people go so maybe they will but but maybe I think it's also brushed aluminum fatigue Illumine at this point you know. In terms of that design languages has been around for a couple of decades now and Finally hear a bird announced it acquired the scooter. Rental Company cirque circuit operates in forty cities across fourteen European countries and the United Arab Emirates terms of the deal were not disclosed but were announced as part of a seventy five million dollar extension to birds latest funding round. So I'm going to assume less than seventy five million dollars in the announcement. The company said it's focusing zing on improved unit economics especially the lifespan of each scooter. And basically how long you can keep those in service means. You can get more value out of that scooter as you pay it off and can actually actually like make money on it bird another scooter startup suit in early. Twenty nineteen so. Tom Does the path to consolidation or does consolidation. AH OF UNPROFITABLE companies eventually lead to some sort of viability question. Mark will make up in volume. Yeah no there is one part of this that might lend some credence to that idea which is a lot of the cost of these is in getting the fleets up to speed and making sure that the fleet is still up to date. And what what you see bird arguing is we're getting longer lasting scooters. Were learning how to make them last longer. And as we buy these now we have the scale to be able to keep these fleets in place without having to constantly buy them to to implement them. Because we're buying companies instead of creating our own from scratch and that does bring the cost down whether this is still a sustainable business. Business model since none of the companies bird is buying were sustainable business businesses. At the time they bought them is still in question. I am not willing to go out and say like no no Oh this is all doomed but it does seem questionable whether this is going to work. It's it's kind of on the fence on that. Yeah and the big deal with this. Who'd acquisition just for some background that got Bird the ability to operate in San Francisco or theoretically. I don't know if they actually got the extension to go ahead but that that ease that process back there air. We've seen all of the major scooter rental or scooter. Startups or scooter. Divisions of companies kind of have layoffs and scale back withdraw from markets. And that. kind of stuff so you you know if they if they have solved that problem and the fact that is tied to a funding around means that they have something to tell investors that was going to be a different story than. Hey we're GONNA lose another one hundred million dollars this year You know again if they have that question. That does ease a lot of the big questions that are around these companies folks if you want to get all the tech headlines each day in about five minutes be sure to subscribe to daily Tech Headlines Dot com Microsoft's chromium based edge browser has a feature that. Lets move multiple tabs to another window. Kind of nifty. A red poster notice. Stay quiet but in some ways earth-shattering conversation happening on the chromium Garrett source code management thread indicating. What can happen when you get a company as big as Microsoft working on the same code base as a company as big as Google? Google Software Engineer Leonard. Gray wrote in this thread about the tab moving feature saying if you're still interested in upstream this from edge we'd be happy to take it in other words. Hey that's a cool feature. Can we put it in the chromium. Source Code Justin Gallagher. A software engineer at Microsoft responded. Sounds Great I'll take ownership of the issue then saying yeah I'll upstream that now handle bill. You know the process of getting that into the code two weeks later Microsoft committed the code to make the change at chromium meaning now any browser based on the chromium code base. That's opera opera chrome. That's brave can now have that same feature to Microsoft is also committing changes to the chromium project to improve accessibility performance and Cappella bad ability. which again would affect not just edge but also chrome and other browsers that use the chromium code base now? Yep that's one part of this story about open sources fast becoming the realm of big tech. It was once the realm of the roguish independent minded Devin EBB and instill isn't a lot of cases. Don't get US wrong. But it's now often only implemented by the rogue independent minded of who is employed by the Big Tech Company take for example light sources recent report on the most popular open source licenses of two thousand nine hundred of the four million open source packages in one hundred thirty million open source files those covering two hundred programming languages. That whites are surveyed. Sixty seven percent were permissive licences like Apache an MIT thirty eighty three percent. Were copy left to licenses like Ghana. Gpl As recently as twenty twelfth. That was flipped in two thousand twelve. It was fifty nine percent copy left forty one one percent permissive. If you don't know permissive licences placed fewer restrictions on how you can use the components. They generally allow for use in proprietary derivative works irks whereas the canoe. GPL licenses say if you change the code you have to contribute that code back to the product open source under the same GPL license so the permissive licences give you the freedom to do some stuff that the GP L. Licenses won't allow which when you're a big tech company making a big complicated product is an advantage manage the mit license. A permissive license is now the most popular though the Apache two point a license has been making gains rich. A lot of this has to do with legalities and and making it simple. That's why the MIT license is so popular. What do you make of all this? Yeah it seems like we're coming to a point with open source and I feel like we've come this with a lot out of Larger tech concepts that were seemingly very simple to grasp at the outset and open source was like the code is open. You can look at the code. You can copy that you can use the code. Oh that sounds great. I reached the same point with kind of like a net neutrality situation where there is there is the principal Biz abstract principle. But when you get into the details of it. There's a lot of like weird weird exceptions or a lot of nuance. That doesn't immediately appear like once you've been talking about it for a while you start realizing this were definitely into that point now with open source wherever we're really starting to get some mm some pushback kind of for the longest time I mean. Microsoft tried to sue Lennox out of existence. I mean basically everyone who's tried to sue Lennox out of existence whether from whatever angle you're coming out of it right and various other open source projects all sorts of legal issues over the years and stuff like that and as is everything now becomes software and API driven stuff like that all of these big tech companies. All of a sudden are realizing. Hey if we could just stand on the shoulders of all of these these people that did all this hard work and then we can take all of that and also contribute That there's tremendous value and I don't want to sound like they're coming in and they're they're taking this offer and really contributing nothing back if you look at the top. Ten biggest open source projects. They're all own top. Contributors are Microsoft facebook. Google IBM stuff like IBM IBM. I'm not a hyper center. And those top three were definitely though the top contributors for a ton of open source projects and the biggest projects out there. Things that power you know. Huge Jenner price systems are entirely based on open source code. Something like Coober Netease. which is you know doesn't not something that's a lot of consumer awareness but is really starting to emerge in the enterprises as as as a vital infrastructure component is an open source project from Google that everyone contributes to at some point so again tons of value there for for those companies but it does get to a point where and not just on the big corporate side where there is interest in being able to pull some that code back not being forced under a GPS Yeah GPL license to by by the nature of using the code. You have to put everything that you work or anything back open source under that exact same license since as well We're seeing smaller companies. Trying to figure out a way around some of these restrictions with open source there there are a lot of deal with aws for example. where it's it's really easy? If you're an open source company for John to take your stuff and spin it up..

You should know Nintendo announced that after March thirty first it will no longer accept Nintendo. We nuts for a pair in Japan setting part scarcity the we originally launched in two thousand six and sold over one hundred million units part scarcity. We stopped making the parts scares Motorola released. A series of videos related to the launch of its foldable razor phone. One of which is called caring for razor in it.

But this is this is it folks the last one say that. But I'll say ten years ago today. Apple announced its third category device. The IPAD of which which many of my friends and Co hosts made fun of the name doesn't seem so strange ten years later at ten twenty four by seven sixty eight nine point. Seven inch display single core seeing core. You're apple a four processor and a price of four hundred ninety nine dollars. The original IPAD was four hundred ninety nine dollars all right. Let's Talk Tuck a little bit more about some shenanigans. The grub up got up to yeah and this came in response to a San Francisco Chronicle investigation that found that Grub or and as a result L. Grub stated. It began adding some restaurants to its sights all the sites that it owns for delivery without a formal agreement with that restaurant. These usually high demand restaurants restaurants on restaurants and in those instances Grub hubs sent someone to the restaurant to place the order or has someone called an employee of Grub with driver coming for delivery later. GRANDPA did did state that it partners was over. One hundred forty thousand restaurants and that most listings are with explicit partners restaurant owners. Say in these cases grub often had inaccurate or out of date listings listings and prices which I imagine cause some confusion when someone came to pick it up now with the explicit partners with the people that you're adding the restaurants knowledge. There's there's some confusing things in this story to be honest. They talk about an incident where a restaurant that's got a Michelin Star in San Francisco. And does I'm not offer takeout just dine in got a call from someone asking for delivery. They said we don't do take delivery. And the person said why. Are you listed on seamless. Then then seamless owned by Grub and the restaurant said we looked and there were. I wonder about that I. I wonder because if a restaurant doesn't do takeout it would seem to be a bad idea to at it. So either grub hub was just aggressively looking at like the highest searched restaurants in San Francisco and throwing their online menus up and whether they delivered or not which is sloppy that the kind of is what it sounds like to me or they. Were you know more nefarious trying to pressure these restaurants into signing up for GRUB hub By trying and to get people to want to order from them and then being able to show like we have all these people interested you. Should you should sign up with our service. I think the most interesting thing here is that maybe the most notable is that that this seems like an almost has to be a small scale operation right. Because if you haven't people individually call from Grub to place these orders couldn't be doing this on a mass scale just kind of You know just hitting every single restaurant that has any degree of popularity. It seemed like the restaurants and the story in the SF gate story. Were like these are Michelin and start restaurants. These were pretty high demand. Pretty hip a hot restaurant so You know again. It doesn't excuse the behavior or make it feel any less kind of cringe. He in some weird away and it seems like you have maybe a data entry error caused someone to flick the test does take out versus no takeout on some beckons data entry. Or we're just not paying attention right just adding things maybe even through through some kind of script or something like scraping menus from the top sites. Something like that I mean on the other hand. If grub hub wants to say like call us and we'll pay someone to go pick up from a restaurant that does due takeout. Should the restaurant be able to forbid that. It's just more business for them. I don't know in and out. Stop Door Dash from doing that. Very same thing But they were asserting it more on trademark grounds which seemed like a work around to try to get them to stop it and they did they did they already have plenty of business so maybe it was causing problems. I don't know there's there's lots of questions questions about this in the end though as as a consumer. If you're using GRUB hub. I would use it by going to the restaurants website and clicking on order her online from there which will often take you to Grub. Thursday Universal Orlando confirmed it will build a fourth theme park featuring characters durst from Nintendo will be seven hundred fifty acre park located just a couple of miles from the three existing universal Orlando Parks and Nintendo. Park is also opening in Osaka soccer this year. And what is planned for California. As well in Osaka people in the park will wear wrist bands that pair with an APP and then they can play games. immersive games in in the park including things like gathering coins for achievements. Locations in the park will include mushroom kingdom peaches castle and an incredible Mario. Kart ride bouncers castle. Babol list goes on in a somewhat related story. Atari announced deal to create eight Atari branded hotels els in the US. With E. Sports Studios Gaming playgrounds possibly Arcades I would imagine. Apparently the Atari hotels will also have restaurants bars movie theaters and even a bakery. First one coming to Phoenix. We'll be the first one built and then they're also going to add them in Austin Chicago. Denver Las Vegas San Francisco. Oh San Jose and settle. Do you like gaming in your leisure resort rich. I guess I will have to It does seem interesting that we're at this You know gaming nostalgia wear one was like the original Disneyland and Disneyworld built right the sixties Disney land in the fifties disneyworld in the sixties. And that seems like what maybe twenty thirty years after the initial introduction of kind of the Disney's a lot of the Disney Canon writing and I feel like we're roughly in that same kind of time span where it comes to you know these Conic Mario Characters and certainly we've gone by far from Atari where we're almost like a second wave of Atari Nostalgia in a weird way I'm but it shows that You know what what worked for these iconic characters on a scale meal maybe works on For Video Games as well has that same has the same impact. Yeah and the and this version of Atari unlike Nintendo this version of Atari is is quite light removed from the original. It's a French company. It owns all the all the rights to to the Games and the names and all of that but it is it is sort of sort of a company that has collected the intellectual property of Atari. And I think has done a you know. As far as those companies go fair- fairly good job of putting out products that take advantage of that like the joystick. That has the games the APP you can buy. That has all the Games. I don't know so much about the Atari that's got out. We'll see how that goes but it links machine so that's kind of interesting. This seems like a good way for that company to take advantage of that. I'm not sure how much demand there is four and Atari hotel though I mean it sounds cool in concept but I don't find myself going to stay there unless it's the only one with rooms when during CAS which Schnee just may end up and investigation by motherboard and PC MAG reports that data collected from computers using a vast antivirus was was being sold by an invest subsidy subsidiary. Excuse me called jump. Shot Jump Shot. Severity of products based on the Info collected from the top ten thousand visited to users. Here's to the all click feed which shows all of us a click on a particular domain. Where they're going? How they're navigating on their vast previously used a browser extension for a data data collection election but these were removed from Google Mozilla and opera's browser stores last year after security concerns were exposed by Abbot plus Creator Planning Their talents now of astor's reportedly orderly asking existing desktop any users to opt into data collection on its antivirus software? Rather than just the extension data is anonymous. With unique unique. Ideas Hashed by jump shot but they do offer in for genders and ages based on browsing habits to their customers also includes full your L. Strings and device. ID's he's Do not change unless you fully uninstalled and reinstalled avast so theoretically if something goes wrong with how they are securing those. Id's that's kind of like a fixed uh-huh Marker there which I think is causing some concern. But now tom is this a story of you. Know anonymous data being sold from someone who's offering an opt in is this a major security story or a major optic story for a vast right now. Yeah it's a little bit of both. I don't think it's much of a security story. It's a little bit of a privacy overseas tour stories on the one hand a company that has a lot of aggregate data say Google Apple Microsoft might might want to make use of that data to sell trends right. When you go look up Google trends you? Don't think of it as a privacy violation right you're saying like Oh what are the most search for terms but underneath that data are the time stamps and search keywords for all the actual people who searched that if you really wanted the dig down into that data and you get your hands on it it's possible to deny demise pretty much anything so to me. This is all about how it's handled in practice who had sold to and is it. Transparent to the user and a vast has a pretty poor work of this being transparent to the user. They got caught with their extension collecting electing some things that they didn't say they were collecting. They didn't use to have opt in although now they do so so that they were kind of. You've not good on that point in the past. But they've cleaned up their act but the fact is we don't know who all they're selling this data to. I'm okay with them saying. Hey We know what the most visited sites are and we'll sell you that list. It's really hard to denies anything out of that But they're also selling pulling more detailed information which includes time stamps and even though that might not show the actual digital id even which is also not anonymous D- if on on the bank. I can probably find out when you were online. If I'm if I'm another kind of service I could take information I have added to the data I'm getting from a vast and then that can help demise so the problem with this sort of thing is it in a lot of cases this is done for for a non horrible reason but can be used to violate privacy. Yeah I think it's also just an awareness and kind of a you know. Information is identifiable until proven otherwise otherwise perhaps is the mindset a lot of people have and transparency transparency transparency. If you're doing this you need to be above board about it. Give people the chance to opt in. They did the right thing there when they finally changed to say like. We won't do it unless you tell us. It's okay because it is valuable data and it can be used for good purposes. Just people are fed up with it not being used in a transparent the way for good purposes patterns generally don't mean a lot companies filed them for the idea that patentable not on the objects that may be some competition wants it or they might I put into place in the future. They don't they don't generally turn into products but a patent filed by apple last May seem to captured the imagination of a lot of people..

And it created like hour long show, which for some was great for some was too much, and I needed to find a balance, and so I made a determination to kind of all the other segments and go purely to an opinion segment I've decided that I'm going to change it up a bit where every week is a different type of show. So there are three types of shows that I'm going to start with the I will be the opinion piece that you guys are used to in that will be today next week. It will be a music related show. And then the following week will be a product based show. So we are products. I finally Instagram and things of that sort all become tting on doing research on in bringing my spin or thoughts on those products. During that type of show, and then we just start over and go back from there. Of course, if anything interesting comes up between now and the next time, I have an opinion piece show scheduled, of course, I will change it up. I we will keep things fresh depending on what's going on in the world. Or what you guys find interesting? So let me know on social media or in the comments or wherever you might be listening to this and your favorite podcast app in your reviews. Women. I mean, what you think does that sound interesting to you. I would love to know your thoughts as I keep saying. So with that in mind, let's keep moving things right along our wanna talk with you guys about a couple of things today. You're actually getting a few topics in one episode today. First of all, I wanna talk about youtuber and youtuber that has been in the news quite a lot lately in will continue to be over the next couple of weeks. And I wanted to bring this up. Bring in my perspective on this type of content. A while also bringing up a specific youtuber that is creating this type of content, and that youtuber is Shane in Hannah or squirmy and Grubbs as they're known on YouTube now full disclosure, I've been following these guys since before they had five thousand followers. So I am very versed on their content that last I checked they're over one hundred thousand I don't really check their subscriber count. So I don't know what the exact number is. But I do know they've been getting a lot of press lately a lot of international and national press specifically because they are a what is known as a inter enabled couple now for those of you that don't know an inner able couple is where each member of. Of they relationship has different physical abilities. One might be disabled one might not be for example, the slow that's the most common form of an inter able to couple. And what I find interesting about the press that's coming out about squirmy and grubs or Shane and Hannah is that people are just a Namur d- with the concept that enabled body person. And a disabled person are together. And see my problem, isn't that these people are enamored with it problem is the approach that these news outlets take with it that it's an anomaly that someone would fall in love with someone who is differently abled. Why does it have to be an anomaly? Why can't we make it on normalcy? Go I feel like the news outlets have an obligation to say, you know, what we're having you on our show, but to remind people that all relationships are normal, even if you don't see it often, it is normal not something to be laughed at not something to be taken. For granted not something to overlook. But maybe maybe I feel this way because I am in this situation. And I will tell you like I would love to get Shane and Hannah on this podcast and talk with them about these kinds of things I would love to hear their perspective real time. I'm going to try to reach out to them. And see, you know, now that they're so well known so to speak who knows if I will get their attention. I should have reached out to them when I first followed them. But either here nor there now, they're they're they're very well known at this point. And I will just say that I'm I'm happy for them. Like, all other point aside. Like, this is not about them per se. I'm very happy for them. I'm very happy for their success. You know, Shane is an author which is. Something I would love to be. But the thought of writing a book is extremely overwhelming to me. So I don't know if that will ever happen, but we can dream because I have to to book, I put ideas, either they'll the right them. But who knows if they would ever get published, and if I was going to write a book, I would want to try to find a reputable a reputable publisher versus self publishing because then I have to do all the marketing, you all know, I have as market this podcast because I do marketing for a living. So anyway, he's an author, and that's great. She's a student, and that's amazing. You know, they really are great. And they're amazing to watch. And are very interesting like some of the things that they do it. It's it's very out of the ordinary, at least in my opinion. Like, for example, they have two rats as pets. What who does that who besides them who does that certainly not me? But anyway, squirmy Trump's and then Shane you're listening corporate opinion, gmaiLcom, let's connect dot you're listening. I really do. I doubt you're listening. But that's my opinion on that. Let me know what your thoughts are again a want to know what you think of these things. My just feeling this way because I'm in this situation or is when I'm feeling warranted at any point. And with that point my next comment for this episode is why do people have a hard time with or really shun or try to avoid. Hanging out with stabled people. I find that people that I'm getting to know or have known for a long time. We talk about how we should hang out. We should do this. We should do that. How we never do or perhaps. I just met them. They want to hang out. They want to do things that all about making plans until you tell them you're disabled, and then all bets are off. What makes people shut down is it depicted? It's an unknown situation. Is it the fact that they don't know how to handle the situation they don't like the situation. What would make this such a regular occurrence because I will tell you at least for me. It's pretty pretty often where people want to do things. But they never act on them or or they assume that they need to take care of me, for example, meaning. We want to go to bar. We're going to hang out and sure I don't drive so they have to come and get me or have to or whatever the case might be depending on the situation. But. Then they go as far as saying. Well, I don't wanna hang out because then I have to pay for your drinks in your food on top of the gas that I'm already spending and I'm thinking, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Hold up. I'm giving you gas money if you're going to come and get me, that's one thing. But Secondly who said the you're gonna have to pay for anything that I choose to order or by while we're hang no like what gives you the impression that I don't have money to spend on myself. These people assuming that I'm on social security or something.

"Time? It'll have a longer residual effect of pre helping to prevent the mold to combat, but if you would paint over top of it, then it would lose its. Operti of how happening helping stopping the mold from coming back. So in your case where you were spraying killing cleaning spraying painting. It would really make no big difference. Whether you you were using Concrobium or backtra backtracks in your case, either one would do the exact same thing. So what you did was one hundred percent accurate. Okay. Now, it's just saying if Moldova start coming back, I use the other just on it. If the mold comes back, and you're not gonna be repainting it then Concrobium would be the better choice than Novak for just that application. Okay. I got it. Okay. Thank you. Sure. All right. Listen, a lot of folks right amount of text message line best deal in town want to know, how backtracks spelled B ACT R O N I X that's back with an x local company out of Corey Opelousas be ACT R O N I X, by the way up to just as a little clarification Dubai. Backtracks is the company, by the way, the actual product cells called backtra kill. So sometimes we get a little confused by that. But if you go to the go to the hardware store to get it. It'll actually say backtra kill is the product name from backtrack. All right. Sounds good. Let's go to Carol in the north hills. Carol how you doing welcome to Katie k radio. Thank you. Couple of weeks ago. I found that some quarters listed the sod in my lawn. An area about nine feet in diameter. I went online, and they suggested using grub Bex because. Critters were probably looking for some grubs. In half for the wintertime. I did apply that and I also put some red pepper down mentioned on line to help keep the fritters away. Okay. This morning. I went out and it's starting to the Saudis being listed again. Yeah. Okay. And you help me. Sure. Sure. Okay. So we have a really bad problem with the Japanese beetles here in western Pennsylvania, the Japanese beetle runs suicidal where it lays eggs, and then the eggs become the grub. And then the grub start getting ready for winter. So they start eating all the grass roots. You start to see these dead spots in your lawn. And then you'll have like raccoons and the skunks just loved the grubs, they common they tear up the lawn. Right. So there's only one way to to do to take care of the grubs right now. And it's very highly likely that it is grubs. It's usually very easy to tell you can literally go out into those dead spot areas where on the edges word it's green lift up to Saad and you'll usually see these ugly grubs there the product used product from Bayer called twenty four hour grub control. This is a product. It's got a chemical called dialogues in. The dialogues is is an immediate overnight apply during the day water it in. Or let it rain and it'll kill all the grubs in your lawn. Does it effectively quickly and literally within twenty four hours, the grubs are gone and your problem in an Esa stopped right at that point. You know, obviously, we're talking about receding and things of that nature. The grub X is not going to help you. There's two products that are on the market that that control grubs like grub ex and the season long grub control product from Bayer, they're great products. But they need to be applied in early spring somewhere in the neighborhood. Generally, speaking, April, it's the plied then and then it's a season-long application. They won't be affective. Now. Yeah. So that that's a little bit of misinformation for you there. But the twenty four hour Grupp control product would be the one I'd recommend. It is extremely effective. He's simply spray down at with a typical lawn spreader it has to be watered in that is a crucial thing and within twenty four hours. You it's kinda gross. You'll actually see the grubs pop up to the surface and die. Yeah. And and as far as keeping the raccoons skunks away once the grubs are dead. They're not gonna come back because there's nothing there formed teed itself. So please repeat the product. Please. Yeah. It's it's called. It's it's called bio advanced twenty four hour grub killer. Plus that's the named grub killer plus from Bayer. And but may it'll have that logo on its his twenty four hour. That's your key to know that you got the right item. Thank you for the call. Listen got another right automotive. Text message best deal in town from John and Aliquippa. Hey, I moved into a role ninety six year old house where the previous owner, let the woods grow up in the to the back porch. It is sloped down towards the house. I have removed two trees, but I don't want to uproot the weeds and have the Lucille roll down onto the house. What grassy do you recommend that? I could plant with the weeds to start converting this wild soil into a yard. Thank you loved his show. Well, the degree did the grassy there. There's a lot of good grass out there. So I mean, we do have our favorites. But what makes black beauty all trust? So unusual is that it has been in. This is another thing we love. I mean, this is from the Jonathan green company and burying green and his father. And I mean, it is it's a family run organization in and if you get any really high quality in from that most high quality sod farms, it's black beauty ultra grass he'd that. They're using. And what makes it so unusual for one it'll shoot routes routes four feet down into the ground. So what that does is you can imagine during times of drought. It's more likely to survive the drought and stay nice and rich and green because it can he can get moisture from deep into the soil. It also puts a waxy surface on the on the leaf of the the the grass that does two things one. It helps keep the moisture into the leaf of the weed it also prevents insects from chewing want to chew on the leaf. So you you tend to have it tends to be insect resistance. Drought-resistant? And then the the crew goal if you will is the fact that it's a beautiful deep green beautiful Grasso. And in this instance, might what makes it even better than it. The Penn State blends or the green thumb or the Scots or anything else is that part of the roots growing for feet deep. And I mean that doesn't happen overnight. It takes a season or two, but this is on a hillside. So you're worried about or erosion or landslide movement or something. There's no other seat on the market. That's going to get those routes that deep and help to hold that soil in the place. So I wouldn't worry about there's weeds there. There's different grasses there so forth. I would just oversee DAT area now with that Jonathan green product, and it's it's gonna take hold now before the frost in the snow and so forth, and then it'll be dormant but come spring as soon as the ground warms up that seat is just gonna spout. You wouldn't believe and within a year. So it will totally take over all those weeds, and you'll have a nice hillside on it. But that seed being on a hillside like that would be the only choice. I would have. That's the black beauty all tra- by Jonathan. Green cudi. Gras was good. Mike. That would powerful. All right. Listen, we're going to talk to Gail and Jack Penn hills Verona, respectively still have time for those of you watching our live stream on Facebook or listening on.

"FM in the iheartradio app. Sherry with a delimit the Van Horn household yesterday afternoon. Well, two days ago. I noticed some holes in my yard thinking, they were grubs. I think we discussed this yesterday. The game plan was to use my lawn spreader and put some grub killer down and then to water the yard as prescribed by the bag. Well, my the grub issue has spread into my neighbor's yard as well. And and my neighbor's dad had come by yesterday. And he he proposed. That it was more than just grubs. He proposed to me that it was an and I haven't googled this yet or looked it up. He proposed to me that it was an Armadillo digging for grubs in our yard at night. And that was what was causing the little holes ilk. Like somebody knowing you air, right? The yard. You put you put the spikes in DC little holes in the yard or whatever. Well, these are like bigger holes that are just dotting through the yard. I mean, it just it looks like I don't know what it looks like it just it's not a pretty sight right now. And it can do damage to the roots and everything so what do you do about the proposed Amadeo? So what I have done is. I am sticking to the game plan, Sherry because. If I kill the grubs food, then I killed the Armadillo food, therefore Armadillo leaves us the heck alone. That is if if it is an Armadillo. Okay. Sounds like a plan. Yeah. Yeah. So we're gonna we're gonna go with that. So for me, it's interesting to think that okay? Well, there could be an animal that's digging up my yard like that. Because my fear was with Grubbs typically grubs bring moles because moles love to eat the gross, which I haven't seen those little those little hills that come up a little bit with the trails in the yard which lets you know that a mole is in there because they stay. I mean, just below the surface. I've seen none of that. So I know that's not a mole issue. Okay. But apparently his theory is something has been digging up the yard and the determine Dallas. Okay. And that's your father-in-law, right? No, no. It's my neighbor's dad neighbors. I tend to believe what all the people say. Start.
