How to Sell to Crack Into All the Government Spending
"I hope found this company called gump spin we help companies Celta government. We actually help. Government DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANIES. We kinda work on both sides of the street. I started my career in the DC area actually started my career as a civilian working for the navy so actually helped government process. Actually something unique. I actually helped sell F. Eighteen fighter jets two. Us Navy into some international Countries at that point really grew that experiencing to last twenty five years really helping again companies either. Sell the government or helping the governor of process extreme line Spent most of my career and currently of a suitable Proto virus time. You know we have been exploding. It certainly very hot topic while the money. The government's putting into spending by the only the only illumination spending more money here currently so we really the knicks just exploding less of a week. So what does government spend? Do exactly sure so a governor. We wish started many years ago. Ten years ago I had a prior company. We saw with the laptops. The police cars are sold to the government that was my most recent gates selling directly to the government and during that time for a of times you can sell the government. Sometimes the process doesn't make sense right. You're like why did he do man what happened but we found out. It's like the old saying years ago. Follow the money right and so what we started do. At the end of that company we started to gather the purchase orders from government agencies. Work with what we found as we started to gather that for our own company it was super insightful. So for example. Hey if you saw company work with a company nine. A few solid agency weren't company for nine straight year nine or ten straight years. The chances you're gonNA come in and displace them is really small. If you saw an agency use a new vendor every two years of a much better shot at that contract right makes total sense but we as outsiders. We don't know that when we were doing business so reason I'll tell you that would go spend started to do many many years ago. Is We gather all the purchase orders from government agencies? We GO GOVERNMENT TO EIGHT GOVERNMENT AGENCY GOVERNMENT AGENCY FEDERAL STATE LOCAL. Gather all their purchase orders. And we put in this online database or folks can query just like Google. You sell widgets you can go online. It's it's amazing you can see. Every government agency buys a widget. You could see who they're buying from and what they pay. It is eating in the world of kind of government sales. So that's where we started. We blossomed into a variety of things. But that's the core of what Gulf spend does super unique patented by US. Just amazing ride last several years at. And how do you process all those purchase orders and what form do you? GimMe GonNa pdf format or you can imagine. It's all over the map rights and there's ninety thousand plus government agencies. I would say like I'm in a room with people. Say Write Down Your name address. Telephone number social security number. You know some of the information if I asked ten people do what they all do it differently right at all someone ready to on the line somewhat stacking someone put their own over the Franchisee. Someone's issues dashes someone as a commander with ninety thousand government agencies. They all do it completely different. So one of the things that makes us turn and burn a proprietary piece of software. We get the foul from government agencies. They come in every format you name it from Seattle electronically try to obviously get digital. And so we have a piece of software similar to ingest that information it's able to Parse it out and then we put it up in our database with make aquarium on about twenty four hours. So it's it's a huge set of data. It's about you folks a sense. It's about two hundred fifty times the size of Wikipedia. So it's a normal database but that's the thing that makes churning Burns's piece of software in about ten years so I see from your history. You sold the company to lexis-nexis this sounds a lot like what Lexis nexis does for lawyers through. It's really interesting. That was some of the impotence of this solution so we were again. We were at the time selling the public safety agencies again. We have this mostly substance. They have a laptop car life. A ten point fifteen years ago. That was very very unique so we help that marketing. Kinda grow right prior to that kind of singing. Hey how does this data and make it more scalable? How DO WE HELP? More people use it because we were we kind of use it in our own functioning of our company. That's exactly what we're looking at the net lexus. Next model how they use the data and kind of use that insurance where the government market so very very announce
Don Tamaki on Stop Repeating History
"Is the background? And the purpose and the goal of the Stop Repeating history campaign that you are a Parv well as the listeners know in one thousand nine hundred eighty two almost one hundred twenty thousand Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed on the say so of the government alone and put in in American style concentration camps three individuals charged the challenge government in that process. Read Komatsu Gordon Arabiya. She and Menu Suey. And those cases were heard in nineteen forty three and forty four and the Supreme Court to their surprise ruled against them and those cases stood for almost thirty seven years for the proposition that without trial without evidence entire racial group. Lose your freedom. Their property and be imprisoned indefinitely by accident thirty seven years later in the nineteen eighties of secret intelligence reports from the army the navy the FBI were found. They surfaced all of which admitted japanese-americans Americans oppose no threat in he committed no wrong and Department of Justice lawyers urging their higher ups basically to tell the truth and not lied to the US Supreme Court and on that basis. We assembled hey legal team to represent all three lead against I was on the legal team representing Redcar. Matsu and based on that evidence of misconduct really abusive power lies in order to manipulate. The of those cases of Fred Karma sues a criminal conviction for Divine. The military orders were overturned and In separate actions the convictions of coordinator beyond Xinmin Yasui and the legal team basically educated the public about what happened when trump announced his travel ban in January twenty. Seventeen we reconvene these legal teams In order to to work with the quarterbacks who center in Seattle and the law firm of Aken Gump to represent the adult children of Fred. Komatsu Corden here beyond Menu. Sui Basically make brief was to remind the court that When they when the court stood down and did not ask questions and accepted the government's claim that doing this Drastic separation civil liberties made the nation safer. It was a civil liberties disaster. So we filed amicus brief Basically to urge the court to examine whether the travel ban Really made the nation safer or in fact was merely fulfillment by trump campaign. Promise that he made repeatedly on the campaign trail down the borders to Muslims and American families of entering the country. Saturday in two thousand eighteen. The court has upheld the travel ban. Five four but we had launched a public education campaign called stop repeating history in order to also inform the public. What had happened and that it ought not to be repeated so I love to hear what your thought is in your whole team. Start when you saw. The travel ban announced his clearly. You being intimately involved in the overturning of the Coronado to indicated by Ashi end the convictions node. The history in intimately well. What kind of parallels did you see that in your mind in your team's mind Signaled the fact that the travel ban against Muslims and a lot of refugees as well is literally in your organization's word repeating history. We were enormously disappointed and angered by. The court's decision was cited by five to four majority. So there was a divided and we thought it was an opportunity for the court to once and for all reverse in truth. Komatsu versus the United States. Judge Chief Justice Roberts did provide lip service have met decision basically saying the core mottes who was wrong. The day was decided but in the same breath join the majority polling the travel ban which in our mind reinforced the worst and most dangerous aspects of Karma swoop versus the United States which was when the executive branch the president invokes. National Security. Courts will stand down. They'll abdicate their traditional constitutional role of being a check and balance on the presidency. And the problem with that is when you have an executive branch which is gone rogue and would certainly happened in nineteen forty two and it's happening now. It opens the door for tremendous abuse of power in the lesson of monsoon. Is that when there is no check and balance The temptation for political leaders to Fabricate facts to misrepresent Epa evidence in order to manipulate the outcome of in this case Major Supreme Court cases that temptation becomes irresistible and the founders of this country certainly understood that every high school civics students knows that we have three branches of government. We have executive branch the Presidency the legislative branch. Which is Congress and the judiciary the cords? Each are coequal each. You're supposed to be a check and balance on the other and the genius of the system was it was really designed to thwart the rise of kings in tyrants and when those systems fail as they did for Japanese Americans. This is how dictators get started. You have in this case of President. Exercising unfettered power and the consequences are severe. You have children being separated from their parents. You have a president who targets minorities whether they be immigrants muslim-serb refugees and the latest attacks are on Asian American specifically Chinese Americans by labeling a global pandemic as a quote Chinese virus and institutions are supposed to be check and balance on that kind of abuse and we see history repeating itself all over again. I want to dive in a little bit. Into the point you made about Fabricating Facts to litigate in front of Supreme Court which is pretty mind boggling for everyday citizens to even contemplate you know we generally hold the Supreme Court to pretty high esteem is the highest core of the land is the final. I call or final decider on a lot of highly controversial disputed issues but to your point people or government in this case in particular actually lied to the Supreme Court to get their position one. And you have a lot of experience with that in the overturning of the quartermaster case. I think that is essentially. What you your team discovered that lets you even the possibility that you could overturn the Supreme Court case which again too many people's minds that is the final decision right when the Supreme Court says something whether you decide whether you agree with it or not it is done but of course they are edge cases and exceptions to that. Could you tell us about? Maybe your experience overturning. The Komatsu case will was the discovery of that. Were the lies that were discovered that. Lets you guys even being able to do this? And then of course tying to what we are experiencing right now whether it's the Muslim ban or potentially other offer things can happen in the future. While thirty seven years after the fact the Supreme Court cases decided Komatsu here she knew. Sui In nineteen forty three and forty four thirty seven years after that secret intelligence reports were discovered by accident by researchers Peter Irons and Heiko Yoshinaga hurt sick. Which really all that. The government in order to manipulate the outcome of these landmark Supreme Court cases fabricated evidence and even burn them and despite the protestations of Department of Justice official soon attorneys who urged their superiors that they ought not to be lying to the Supreme Court to clarify. We did not over earned the decision. What happened was basically Before nearby she in ministry five the orders for this bass removal. They were charged and convicted with Criminal violations and Suffered criminal penalties and we reopen these cases. A writ of error was the only device reopen these ancient cases. That would've otherwise been time. Barred by this limitation isn't criminal writ calls rhetoric quorum notice which allows litigation to reopen their case to clear their name and doesn't give them any money as and give back the years that they lost. They can remove their criminal. Convictions we won on those. The government appealed their loss and then they withdrew their appeal in our system. Only the loser can appeal not the winner and so the the withdrawal of the appeal was a very strategic. Move to keep it out of the. Us Supreme Court And only the court supreme court can reverse itself now when the trump versus quiet case came up in twenty eighteen. That was an opportunity for the court squarely. Look at the facts Komatsu because there were very similar to the travel ban and actually reverse it reverse that case and sadly the court didn't take that

Ravi Gump Kamal is the author of love. Yourself like your life depends on it. He's meditated with monks in Himalayas. We got to hear about that served as a army. Infantry soldier and Co founded several companies and venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. Come all. I've been looking forward to this interview. Thanks for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me man. I kick off with a quote that I came across years ago and I just thought perfect when I was giving your book by Gideon Gideon while Harper Winer. Yeah When he had mentioned you and then another mutual friend mentioned it and I started flipping through the book. I thought of this quote by CS Lewis. Success hardships prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary life interesting. That's going and while he was a wise man he was a wise man so I want to kick it off by starting from the beginning. You Open Up Your Book and you talk about in two thousand eleven. The company that you spent three years of your life building and all of your money went under set the stage for us at the beginning. Okay so the the genus. This book is actually. This is not a book. Set out to write. You know that people like I'm going to write this book. This was never a book to write. It came out of an experience. That was very transformative for me where I've been in Silicon Valley building startups building companies at Dunwell and the last company. I was building At self-funded if over three and a half years and then took on funding. Because I'd run out of money you know. Billing tech companies not cheap right for for years and And the whole thing blew up and I lost everything you know which in hindsight you you remember. I remember now. Look Ninety something percent star tech startups fail but when is yours and all your money you ego your personality is self worth all of us wrapped up in it. I I it. Blew up on with it and and I was in a really dark place and you know the other things happening in life to at the time it was almost like we had like Salami. I'll just happened at the same time and I was in a very dark place in one night. I just was like okay. I can't do this anymore. I gotta get out of this place or die trying. I cannot be here and and it was like this this intense moment of like saying. I can't do this anymore. Can't be here anymore in this place. This does this darkness depression. Whatever you WANNA call it and I walked over to my journal and my on my desk and I wrote down something to myself I and I you know you should write notes to myself but this this time. Something from somewhere deep I wrote a vow to myself and it was a vow Listen the book You know I'm GonNa Paraphrase but it was avowed alum myself and I don't know where that came from. I wasn't sitting on thinking you know what I need. Another makeup news failed. I need to love myself that I wasn't thinking that at all. I don't know whether we came from like somewhere. Deep Right. It was like one of those pure moments of life. We just come through something deep. I did recognize that. And it was a vow as a full on commitment to myself. And so I'm a big believer keeping your commitments that you made from the heart and this was a pure from the heart to myself and so I had to keep it except I didn't know how and said okay. I'm GonNa work on this. I started because I nothing else to do. My Company of failed. I lost everything of living credit cards and I was trying to figure out what to do next and so I just started like trying things in my head because that's the only thing I control the only control I really had was if I was if I was not happy verbs in my mind the only control ahead was will work on my mind as I started. Just do things to my mind and started trying things and I found. Things are starting to make me shift to make me feel better. And if they worked I went deeper if it stopped working through. I didn't care all I wanted was one result was to get out of this place and so avoid by following that almost like a decision tree of things that are working out working and going deeper deeper. I came up with like a simple practice doing every day and I was just getting better and better. Better my take a better in my life started getting better and this didn't take long. It took weeks if most right and it was it was. I'd never ever knew that was possible to go from that kind of darkness to like almost like light. And so you know it's like when you discover something in life that's really transformative. The next thing. Is you become like newly converted your friends. Who are going through stuff. I would tell them like Lara Dude. Like don't worry. I figured out here I would write little things because while I'll be building companies in Silicon Valley. I'd also been training myself to write literary fiction. I wanted to be write novels right. So I've done the ten thousand hours. I knew how to write someone. Just right up little things and sent to them like little almost a couple of word a couple of pages worth like. Here's what I did. Here's what I went through here. Do this right. I would do this for friends and because it gets tiring having to explain again again because people ask questions adding them again. It gets here. Let me just write it that I could share the same people. I mean different people and it started it worked for them because it's like a simple simple stuff. There's nothing complicated. Have to stand on your head and scratch your. You know like do anything to say. Just little stuff you're doing inside your head beer. And they had all the time any day she'll things that when and we'll get to all that and we'll break it all down but foundational things. That seem so simple that we often overlook. Well look ultimately. If you look at anything in life you look at Art. You look at writing. You look at Physics math anything. Simplicity's where it's all the if the closer to break it down to the basics the very very fundamental basics and simplicity is transformation happens you know especially for us as human beings. We don't need to know complicated stuff. We will not practice it. We need simple stuff that we can do consistently and I was talking with every time. I ritual you know talking yesterday and like was the Diet Best Diet I think the best I can keep consistently was the best fitness program. The one that you can keep consistently you know not the one that you do once a month you know and same thing with the mind. What is the best way for mindset the simplest most effective that you can do consistently and I was in a place where all I wanted was results? I didn't care about theory. I didn't care about Does it make me feel half better. I just wanted to get out over was right so I wanNA come back to your story because a company failing isn't event right and even the word failure is our story on it like you wanted anyway. I was totally in that story right. You're in that story. So you talked about this valley that you made to love yourself but let's go back and set the stage a little better. Because I think that a lot of listeners our podcast might be able to identify it. Identify with it. So what were you doing? You had a situation. You had an intended outcome. It didn't work out. It wasn't what you wanted. But what was the story that you created around it? And where were you at that time that you were doing the opposite of loving yourself while? I was a typical Entrepreneur story in the sense. Like look I didn't take even a Sunday off over three and a half years I think no near the end. My team convinced mutate. Start taking Sunday's off right. I was so obsessed. I was going to pull this off. My entire sense of self was wrapped up. All my money was wrapped up in it and it was coming close to be successful. So my ego was wrapped up in it I WANNA blew up. You know I I took it personally. You know which which is normal. But it's also kind of silly because I gave it my all. You know it's not like a didn't work my butt off you know But it was like the whole story of failure and also I was just. I was worn out. I was sick There are other things happening my life that would result just like a cascade effect of just being bottom and one of the things. I tell people as like look. Don't cut got caught up in my story in a it's a human thing hitting bottom is hitting bottom. People know what that is. You can be living in a in a in a Bedouin. Tent in the middle of the desert understand. What like feeling bad is like we're paying bottom doesn't mean that you have to have built a company to hit bottom should universal humane human. The human you know fear love pain joy these things these are all fundamental human constructs right so and that are all relative to your circumstances just like you said you don't have to be a founder now could be trying to do something for your kid's school well. You could have anything life. A BREAK-UP HAPPEN YAM breakup. Great for gave making your head bottom tastic. I'm poster child for those you know like I it's it's a very human thing but also rising is also very human
The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the. Us These guys are awesome. Content is always amazing. Well thank you so much. They really open up the world to people through their travels. I'm not traveling and personal experiences. I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit
How to Tell When It's Time to Splurge
"In our day jobs. We get to help folks make financial decisions and a lot. The top people equate that to like how save more build wealth. How do this thing but we talk about all the time? One of our favorite things to do is to be that voice reason that tells tells people when they can take their foot off the pedal where they can actually enjoy some of the fruits of their labor. We just did a show. That's always were to the show ideas. Come from what we just on that show. We're I I was very self confessional about the fact that I'm no longer consider myself a tight. What now if you were attending the livestream I still have a lot of tightwad tendencies? I just can't get those out of my system but it is one of those things where I love it when we talked about this in pre show planning we are now that you unleashed windy. We tell clients that they could actually spend. When do we tell people we're going to be able to that? Ought to be a show. When do we actually get to live like no one else? We hear these things. You're saving saving saving but Wendy. When do you start to put that needle over to? It's okay and give yourself permission. Because that's the biggest thing one of the favourite parts of being financial advisor. Here's the negative. You have to tell people. They're spending too much but there is a huge positive. Actually for a lot of our clients is that they've been so good at accumulating assets. They actually have a hard time. Tom Breaking the habit of building that we tell them. It's okay to start consuming contrite and I love it when we get to break that point to them I think one of the common misnomers that people have is that oh well that happens at retirement or that happens at the financial independence. Were actually going to talk to you today. About not only. Does it happen there. But they're actually times throughout your accumulation accumulation journey throughout your building journey. Where you can give yourself the freedom even if you're young even if you're early on even if you're in the beginning stages where it's okay to spin so long asks you're doing the things you're supposed to do so let's jump right into these and I was so excited about this slide? And here's the first slide is is foosteps are followed by the way. Here's what I think is awesome. I'd like to tell you my entire life is very. I can't say Mr Magoo because I just gotten to be so old forrest gump might very well become. It's kind of getting everyone recognize but I do feel like I m the accidental success story on most things and once again I've stumbled into something awesome is that we've been talking about for years. Financial Order of operations. I mean it is one of the if I call it money guy won a one. You want to understand financial order of operations. One of our. I came here it was youtube or podcast world but money got family members said we love the foosteps house. Like Oh oh my gosh. This is one step closer today Grohl because it is because when I do all this stuff completely by accident I'm like this means that Dave Grohl on are meant to be best friends. Ah I mean it really is a son that we're supposed to thunder Dave. If you're listening we'd love to have you on the show. So let's talk about this because I do WanNa talk about well. Financial Order of operations. This is one of those things and we're going to go much deeper in this. I've got some things in the works even late last night I was working on some ideas with his financial order of operations and I wanted to kind of go through this rather quickly and we know that we have other resources in the past that people can look into but this is when we talk about financial order of operations. But let's go through these pretty quickly and science sign number. One is not that you've completed it but that you are following the steps correctly and so in order to know if you're following the steps correctly you have to actually know what the steps are so step number one of the money orders. Operations is the deductibles covered You WanNa make sure that you have that money set aside that can get you out of the ditch if things things are going haywire you at least have enough to cover health insurance deductibles auto deductibles homeowners deductibles whatever's required. If there were a catastrophic event you have it there to get you out of the pitch this is where you know most people we know the stats. I'M GONNA cover it in a minute. Most people can't come up with a thousand dollars. So you're right. This is just to keep you from the danger. He's home. You have a really yarn poppin bottles on number one. This is just like I said to keep this thing from running aground and remember because I don't think I set up the the the financial order of operations. What makes this so foundational? Is that just like we talk about time. We think a lot of finances very math. Based I mean matter of fact people get onto onto they say no behavior behavior. Well Yeah we get the behavior but if you're not taking if you're neglecting the maths or you are doing this thing all wrong and that's why we just spoke. Oh could a group of structural engineers. We got hard to come up and talk about that. In the first thing we did was we showed him a math equation. That had exponents in it. It had parentheses it had multiplication tables had division had some subtraction and addition and we ask them we said how in the world did you guys know how to do this and and they all were able to say you know I was ordered. Operation is us which was an always. Screw this up but it's like please excuse my dear aunt sally you nailed it see. That's the first time I've ever heard you get it right so but it's the same thing so I wanted to give the context so that everybody understood. Why is this so powerful finances finances is the same as the way you do order of operations with math? You need to do it in the right order so you actually make your system as efficient as
Keith Recker on Color as Narrative
"Guest in the studio is Keith. wrecker who is the author of a new book true colors world masters of natural dyes and Pigments Heike. Hey how are you both pretty good Keith how did you get into color. I have to say it's been a long and winding road I come come from a background of poetry and literature and of course you know when you have that background you have to do something and I ended up having to separate careers. Maybe three three one and big retail as director of home furnishings at Saks fifth avenue gump San Francisco and Bloomingdales Direct Response and another career nonprofit as head of aid artisans As founder of the hand Eye Fund and hand eye magazine and currently as pro bono creative director of the international folk art market based Down Santa Fe and my third career has been in Trenton color forecasting with Panton. WGN A little bit with Stylus of really trying to inject a sense of adventure creativity relevance to their client base. Now when we did our episode where we interviewed Donna. Karen that was was She had part of the international folk art market in the urban store and and we were surrounded by products from that market But she didn't really talk about the interview. Can you tell us a little bit about the international folk art market. Yeah absolutely you were surrounded In the urban zone holiday market by I think it was twenty nine different artists from all over the world mostly textiles in that In that collection and the things ranged from the most amazing handspun Kunia hand-knit by artisans in Argentina And the group. That does these. Things is part of have a biosphere management program in the high dry plains of Argentina where Kunia are an essential part and the Kunas harvested the incan way where the village surrounds the Vicuna. So that there's no sense of panic. They slowly move in until the animals can be sheared It's a really touching story so you have. You were surrounded founded by twenty-five stories with that kind of depth and historic resonance And the folk art market is an annual event in Santa Fe. Happens every July. We bring together between one hundred sixty and one hundred eighty artists from all over the world fifty plus countries and they're bringing the best of what they make from a traditional point of view view sometimes from a personally adventuresome creative point of view sometimes from recycled and cutting edge social point of view. It's a real mix of creativity city that from our us-based experiences seems very out of the mainstream and therefore terribly exciting and motivating they must get a lot of just going to that and and meeting each other and seeing what they all do all around the world you that that must be just such experienced for an artisan who works in the community services that do the same thing and then meeting artisans who do wildly different things from other parts of the global. You've already understood the thing that the artists themselves I liked the best about it. They love exchanging topics with each other. Whether it's how to whether it's Oh my God you should try this. Sometimes they get together and collaborate after the market so somebody shares of an all white Chikan embroidery piece from Lucknow and they send handed off to one of their new friends to be dipped in indigo to be Bandini tie-dyed to to be transformed into something subtly and beautifully different so the exchanges which is really the magic plus the sales a lot of folks walk away from the market with a years worth of income in their pockets based on a twenty two hour event. We sell a around three three point. One two three point. Four million dollars worth of product in twenty one hours and all. The skit paid out Two days later so in five days you go from setup to pay out and reviewed archie. It's an amazing operation. It sounds like a really tight knit community than really so. Is it hard hard to join that community or WHO's finding new artisans for that. It's a very tightly jury. Joe Artists from all around the world apply online pictures and text and their two juries. There's a group of academics from museums around the world. Mostly around the. US who look at it from the point of view is of is this this really rooted in a cultural assets right that we recognize that there's techniques color languages languages motif. Is it routed somehow in community entity heritage and then the second group answers the question. Is this gonNA connect with the market. Does it represent a product. Does it represent a look. Does it represent a price is point and of course is it super beautiful. I mean that's that's the first question that we have to answer before we even proceed to the further analysis so those two groups are responsible. Secure eating something. That really is unique in the world. There's nothing like in the entire world so between that and what you're describing in your the book about being in touch with all these natural colors ways of getting color from the earth from plants a lot of this is about being in touch with what what you're making an and how it's being made and we talk about the supply chain a lot but most people aren't really at the root of their supply. I Chan they don't they don't go back to you. Know Not alive designer. Spent much time in cottonfields looking at different types of cotton as they're growing what the fibers look like in different fields. They get finished product. Kind of textiles What does it do for the world? If if people are more in touch with this I would love to answer your question in a complicated way. Cleans that's what the show is more. I think we need to look at the heritage Jane even as we look at the supply chain If you look back at how how we got where we are today in terms of what we make and how we make it into textiles especially The eighteen fifty six invention of the first synthetic dye. Mo- Oh Wien right by a teenage English chemists Perkins totally by accident. He was working with coal tar to try to find a synthetic Quinine quinine substitute right to treat malaria and the colonial era of of the British empire and he discovered that something that he was making Would dissolve Alvin Water and color rags in really very attractive sharp Purple Reddish purple. That unleashed the willful exploration exploration of using a lot of petrochemicals to substitute what were centuries thousands and thousands of years of heritage so for example the company that became. BASF right the maker of the cassette tapes that some of us are old enough to have fetish started off by making making synthetic indigo and interestingly the synthetic indigo they made did not appeal because they had not really captured that the full charm of indigo go went beyond just the indigo molecule. They had to go backward and realized that. Indie Ruben. A red molecule that would form in the process of indigo dyeing was needed to give the color depth so they had to go back and explore. Why Nature was so much more beautiful than what they were at first capable of making in any case since eighteen fifty six we have lost so much knowledge? If you and I walked down the street today and Looked at what people are wearing down the street and we asked ourselves well. How would you ever get that color? Are we using anything other than a chemical would have zero insight. Chances are right. We've left all that behind so the heritage chain I think has impoverished the richness understanding That we used to have about what comes from our world and how it's made and how valuable it is. We've gotten to a point where we're so distant from our heritage chain that things have the virtue of plastic bags of disposable valueless product after they've faded in the washed twice were done. There's a statistic out there that eighty percent of the clothing we buy ends up in a landfill within one year. And it's because we're so oh distant from people culture heritage skill invention and talent that the things we buy are not worth holding onto so then we go to the supply chain right and there really is in as an extension of this heritage chain a set of material knowledge judge that is still relevant in making textiles. It still relevant in making clothing and it's waiting for us to study at more and to really really incorporated into responsible valuable fashion creation.

Whoever has the best story wins the sale!
"You'd we're talking about using the incredible power of a well-crafted story it's titled Whoever has the Best Story Wins the sale. Well there's an old saying that data tells a story cells. That's a flashy little saying but think about this statistic when speaking to an audience audience and when you get done only five percent of the people in that room will remember statistic after you finish your presentation however if instead of a statistic you use a story a whopping sixty three percent will remember the story you told again by percent will remember statistic sixty three percent will remember a story. And if you don't believe me if you don't believe me let's just test yourself. which do you remember more your sixth grade American history class or the historical scenes from forrest? Gump both of them more history. One had a great story attached to it for most of us. Sixth sixth grade was so long ago. We can't even remember the teacher's name let alone what she said why. We think it's because it was boring. Well not so. It's the simple fact of how difficult it is for our minds to remember a number or statistic sixth grade history lessons are off on a series of facts and figures dates. However if you put that story into a personalized history as in the popular movie forrest? Gump you can instantly and fondly recall all the moments of history when he went through. Why is this important? When selling the farmers an agribusiness buyers because we are all convinced everyone of us is convinced is that we need to charge out into the marketplace with all of our research proven data and sell value with a proven? Roi Return on investment and. That's what we we all do so from our customers point of view the farmer in our business buyers all day long they're besieged by an army of sales people showing and how good their products are with their statistical data. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying that data and stats aren't important. They certainly are important and we. We need to have them to prove our products effectiveness if or when needed however they are just too forgettable and they're all the same or their counter. Dick Victory in your customer just decides you know what I don't believe any of it. I'm just GONNA pass to win the sale. We need to get the message across to our customers and make it stick in their memory to accomplish this. We can use the incredible power of a fitting well-crafted story we using stories to sell in a professional exciting. It's not just sitting around with your friends. Sitting around the Campfire telling stories. Stories had cell have a structure to them. They described the before during bring in after they quickly depict the struggle and solution which struggle the one your product salves and the one. This customer has which which solution the solution not your solutions a very subtle difference. But I think it's important to position this as the solution that works not referred to it as your solution very small difference that sends a little better message so stop relying completely on data and start telling better stories. We're here are a couple of tips number one. The three components needed for every sale story. Our situation solution success. These are part of every sales workshop by put on. It's not a natural born talent for us to go around telling selling stores we need to learn structure and how how to build these effective selling storage while it takes a little time to learn the process and get the right stories. Developed is well worth on their next sales call when they had from the workshop and try to sell the next prospect number two. What if I don't have stories? The only requirement for story is that it be true and accurate. If you're new to the company and don't have a lot of your own stories to tell fear not check with your manager your peers. Your fellow department managers ask that person that's been around the office for forty years asked them for stories on the products and services. You sell us their stories until you have your own now. I think it's only fair to let your customers snow. If it's not your exact story that you are involved with however if it's your products from your company it really shouldn't matter that is not your direct story. Lastly I want to leave you with this thought. Is We think in pictures. Just take the next thirty seconds and reminisce about any significant moment in your life your graduation in your wedding. The birth of a child your last big sales success something hilarious that happened on a sales call or something completely embarrassing now. How did you remember it? Did you remember it as a data as date on a calendar or did you see the actual events in your memory with vivid pictures short mental video clips of what actually happened. How proud is everyone clapped for you on stage or how embarrassed you felt when you made a big mistake you actually saw yourself turning red and seeing the looks on people's faces as you felt embarrassed? My guess is you remember the short video clips and images of it actually happening. Our minds are wired to remember or stories not sequences of numbers enclosing. Remember this. I've been to a lot of presentations Sales meetings a lot of meetings in general following any presentation. I have never heard ever heard anyone. Say Wow did you see slight forty six. That was amazing but we do hear people remembering the stories that a presenter tells we all these stories over in our mind we see the
Edward Norton Discusses His New Film 'Motherless Brooklyn'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out now that I truly love called motherless Brooklyn which is written directed and starred my guest Edward Norton Great Devere then too long. It's been way too but I talk about long as long as I've known you which has has to be going on twenty years. We've been talking about mother. It was really you've been. That book came out. Jonathan Lethem's book came out and he said I'm going to do that. Yeah this is going to be. But it's finally here. Peter I told you I would and I did I did but you know I can't wait another twenty wanted to do it. But how do you feel now. Really good I when something's been rattling around your head for a long time it is it is nice to get it out. It's sort of like I relate. My character has to read syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder and when he talks about having glass in the brain. And that's a little bit how this project was for me. It was like glass in my brain. I want. It was uncomfortable and I wanted to. I did want to get get it out but apart from that personal compulsion to see it through. I'm happy with the way it came out. Maybe maybe more than I usually am. Actually it's saying the things I wanted to say and I think maybe you commented on this. It's it's sort of. I don't think it would have had the resonance that that it has now ten years ago. Honestly We were talking about this before we started just the difficulty of course as he has commented on very eloquently. I think in his kind of elegy to the how difficult theatrical films have gotten how difficult it has gotten to release original theatrical films. It's it's always a struggle for filmmakers to make original Ville visions. It's always been you see the cast we had in this film. We have Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin and Google about the Ron and Bobby Kennedy Volley in great great actors. But you still have to. You still have to sort of struggle to find the resources is you need to make it. And I wasn't and I didn't need them. Two hundred million easy. My I got all my actors working the free on my actors worked for nothing to help me get it made honestly but you still but you still have to still have to figure it out. Well there's so many things in terms of mother Louis Brooklyn about what you have to do even with a studio backing him. You have a movie that maybe they don't know what the title is. Maybe maybe they never read Jonathan's book it'd be they're saying what's it about right. I'll what is this and that money has to be poured into letting them know what it is. Ask because not presold been John Game. Yeah No to do the property those things and look in my case. I I was there saying look. I WanNa make a big old fashioned period epoch about New York in the vein of the Godfather or L. A. confidential confidential. or any any of these great old fashioned movie experiences I think demonstrably audiences really loved right when they're good. We all love of those films and and I wanted to mash it up a little bit with other another type of movie. I love which you also have a pure you know sort of the underdog the the forrest gump. The Rain Man That idea of a a hero. whose very unusual has an unusual condition edition? That you've never seen before that you feel empathy for and the empathy that you feel for him the the fact that you immediately. You're on his side. That's part of what that's what pulls you through. A murky. It takes is one of the nicest guys you've ever played. WELL HE IS I. I think he's well. It's funny and someone said to me you've done a lot of people with Conditions are afflictions. I said No. I've done a lot of people who are fating conditions or yeah like like primal fear baking the score with Deniro in American History X. There's no faking. He's he's just. He's angry mentally ill and the truth is this character. He's not mentally ill he. Just has he has terrip syndrome so people they call him freak show but he's he's smart and he's intelligent. He's he's susu sensitive. The great thing about watching this movie is that it takes awhile sometimes for you to say my brain isn't working like Lionel's right. Oh He's piecing together this puzzle in his own head his own synapses and we're trying to put a linear thing that isn't there. No Oh but I I actually the only thing that I just. I think that Agreeing in house district buys by a certain point story. I think when characters this goes back to like J D Salinger Holden caulfield and catcher in the Rye when sometimes when a character tells you his own story right from the start you you relate you feel the emotional hook and I think if you set that hook early with a character if in this case Lionel in a classic detective voice over where he tells you I have something wrong with me. I struggle with it. I I have friends. Who Understand? Me like Bruce Willis but not everybody does and it's it's tough. You know you start to go. Oh I inside this guy I understand him. You want him to do well. You don't want him to trip himself up. You're always reform. I I just think what you're doing you're saying I don't quite know how he's piecing it together doesn't tell you know and that goes to what you've done with Jonathan Lethem's book set in the late nineties but you send it back in time as through the fifty S. I don't think anybody ever knew what to read sets the well. That's what you just said is part of the reason we put it in the fifties the the the isolation the characters isolation not just in terms of other people being a little less sensitive calling him freak show But if you know that he doesn't even know what he has your even more sympathetic. It's it's it's even more isolating to not know what's wrong with you in some sense but the other thing was honestly Jonathan and I both really like those movies. The the the old fashioned atmospheric feeling of those noir films from that era. The novel motherless Brooklyn Brooklyn is very interior it's inside the characters head but obviously a film is a big a bigger canvas. You have you've got to create a landscape for people to look cat and it's great landscape. Yeah it's that whole fifties thing that's going on in New York and why. Why no is called called motherless Brooklyn Yeah you know why basically has nobody so no one looking for him? But he has Bruce Willis's character yes when a minutes boys so he he has something. And that's how this movie starts. It's about who killed my mentor. Who did this and then we get what to me? She has a real chinatown by. which is where's what's festering underneath this? It's not just who murdered character. What's going on? It's it's what's going on. Well you had the water in La. That was going on. You Know Chinatown chinatowns. Great because it's about La's original sin. It's not just about Out a mystery it's about the idea that La is built on crime. And that's and that's that's what I like about our foams. They they do. What you said is exactly right? It says hey they say hey yes. It's a certain mystery and a certain emotional relationship is driving why he's investigating but really what what this about is the more he he takes us into the shadow we realize there are things going on in what we call our democratic like Galateri in New York society that are violently antagonistic to everything. We say we believe in which we see through the out Baldwin Characters or Robert Moses type character master builder under a person that says I'm GonNa create the city to look like this and then cuts out anybody who's an outside anybody who is into one percenter right which which is what goes to the topicality. Yeah even now and was a racist t the total race. Yeah and I think that idea of the way that the way that we actually baked people talk about institutional racism but discrimination was literally baked into the Way New York was built into a modern city. They literally did do things like lower bridges to the new beaches. They overpasses they set them too. Low for buses is to clear them. Because they didn't want black and Latino minority citizens coming to the new public beaches so they literally limited access and people think that sounds like a conspiracy theory but it happened though it did happen and we see it and yet these are things that you have in your screenplay screenplay this book added to. Yes what was in the book right when you collaborate with somebody like Jonathan Right. WHO's a really terrific right? I really great writer. Is He with you on. I couldn't have done what I did on. This was bowled you could call it. Yeah but but he doesn't say what have you done. No no no no. I wouldn't do that without checking it out out with him. I I felt that I felt there was reasons to set it in the fifties. We talked about that. He liked that idea because he likes those films and I think he he knew is fill his book we had a certain Surreal Meta modernism. If you WANNA call it data it's really about the interior life of this character. He he wasn't so married to the plot per se. The plot didn't wasn't like the story of my family or the story of my city. It was it's a very Byzantine mazed. It's really an excuse to write the character in some sense. You know he also loves Raymond Chandler and you know those guys marlow at the detective. Active in Chandler with went through a couple of novels right so we kind of approached it like his great character going into another the next another another story in terms of taking a movie which you've described we've talked about it now and putting it on the screen. Do you worry about it reaching reaching an audience putting out kind of putting out work that you do that you you have a deep feeling for is always It's always got Certain emotional risk no matter how thick skin you get over the years no matter how many no matter how many you know. I've been through quite a few experiences like I'm getting a a nice honor from the camera. Image Festival in Poland this year. It's the Great Cinematography Festival right. And they sent me a rundown of the films they wanted to review in this thing. And it's amazing like at the top line of of those kinds of assessments of films. I've done that people think are really Definitive or something like that. You have like fight club. And he's always in there and the twenty fifth and American history x is always in there and none of those films did well.
"gump" Discussed on Working Interferences Dental Podcast for Dentists
"My guess is Hey Hey can I go hang out by some drugs. These drugs that have a street value of millions. Just chill. Yeah just Pappas Squat and chill right by right by the hydrogen and the daughter. There's probably some way to be able to shadow but there's probably some it's strict. I would hope that. There's some strict ways rules in hoops to go through before they let you. I don't know I have a little God. Okay never mind within two months ago in a separated of optometry but this one is. Is it better to have the blue light filter on your phone sunscreen. Twenty four seven or just have it on a night so I thought that was about to be. I really want to be an optometrist. And they'd just like we're just bussing through but it's a fifteen year old kid. They're they're they're right last gets right. Have you seen the show big mouth I have have not. I know of it but I have no const. It's on Netflix. It's Nick Kroll and John Mullany. It's their cartoon show about puberty. And one of the characters is the hormone own monster. Okay and I just I could just hear the hormone monster like in this guy's room as he is. He's typing these because he's just like he's just has that sort of bouncing from thing to thing like in a very short period of time but super into gardening a lot of gardening meaning. What a house plants questions does anyone know of snake plants grow redder grow better when connected to a rise zome? I don't know that I do not either banana When should I remove the pup in some relation to a house explain? I don't know I'm not a gardener plans. I'm getting a real like Neville Longbottom vibe here.

Yeah Yeah and then next thing you know he's cutting the snake off Baltimore's head talking here over the show and the head of the snake right. He's killing the last. So maybe this kid is kind of all over the place really good a plants and maybe instead becoming a dentist maybe ends up. You know killing an Isa's last or correct. Whatever AH right Good luck kid look got all of dentistry writing on you were reading for you buddy. No pressure rooting hard question to credit. Use Her Own G. O. M. G. O. M. G. How many letters that is but thirty. Something like that uh-huh so that's a you better hope you're safari or your chrome saves that logging information because you do not want to type that every time type Wisdom Teeth Sinus perforation. I thirty six male recently had my four wisdom teeth removed. I have concerns that I have perforated rated my sinus and was curious about the resolution of such an issue. I called my dentist. You perform the extraction but they were out of office until tomorrow at which time I have an appointment sharp in the morning this post in question archer try and call me. Why do I think I have a perforated sinus? Well I tried to blow my nose and couldn't build up any sinus pressure. The pressure was released into my mouth rifle bubbling sensations coming along the top of my mouth. I couldn't exactly place it to where the tooth extraction was but around around that area. In addition when I drink water I briefly have a runny nose afterwards based on the above from what reception stated at the office. It sounds like my sinuses perforated. The receptionist made this sound like it was no big deal however I can feel breathing in my mouth in the more I read on the Internet the more I descend into a the state of Uttar panic. How is this resolved? What is the recovery time if this required surgery will leave a scar on my face if anyone can give me the T. L. D. R.? I would be grateful lance what do you think you think. He's got a scientists exposure could be. Yeah there's wasn't that the vowel Salva. Yeah I think it's more than could be. I think absolutely most definitely one hundred percent yep has exposure. I just didn't want to be you too. Committal yeah but I mean come on like yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah you're fucked. Yeah all right. Let me ask you this question. Have you ever taken out a tooth on the upper and had a sinus exposure. Oh Yeah of course. Anybody answers noted that is a pediatric. Dentist he doesn't take out to you fucking liar right. Are you lying. If if you've taken out any teeth on the upper poster at some point your Amazon six uh-huh aw right. That's part of the deal. The risk go. It's in the forecast should happens. Have you ever created or had a Sinus at Ohio. ANDRO communication Russian today. If you WANNA get real fucking Italian about it or whatever. I don't know why it sounds good. You'RE GONNA get get real uppity about it. I'll style yeah exactly. That's where I was going to get real uppity in Horo intro communication and not told the patient about. Yeah you have yeah. It's not that big a deal talking like a like a small pinpoint one or something. Then you take it and you're looking down there like Oh shit that's the membrane fuck we'll but like I'm talking membrane blown open like yeah okay. Do do not have like different post op directions if you have a scientist exposure versus not. Yeah it's a it's all written and they sign it and yeah we just roll with it really really yeah. Hey I have a sinus exposure which I've done on. We'll talk about that and I'm telling them like a first off. Don't blow your nose just like hawk.

Why didn't you tell me it's like I'm trying to head this off at the pass? Yeah I'm trying to think I remember a couple. Where am I that is wide open and then really do much of anything and make sure did you put your phone or anything up there but on GAAS Ma'am CNN and everything turned out okay? uh-huh Shimin starts expecting to go with this one. I'd love to hear from like Moody or somebody like that. Like we do their pants right. Now listen to me saying this but Yeah you is a graduate of implant pathway. It's like they're gonNA come to your office and take your certificate uh-huh Wall it's one of those things where the vast majority of the time things resolve just fine on their own We want to do our best to mitigate any complications locations and if you can Guided tissue you guide it you know graft or something great sure. Yeah but even at like he doesn't have to be like particular bone membrane or something. You could just plug up a collar plug or something like that. And they're just do a criss cross suture over it hip and it Li Lee sort of protect the sites that membrane can heal. Doesn't take long to heal. My concern is just leaving it open like this just going to make it harder to heal because there's just garbage in and around it. I'm trying to think I mean I don't have any data on this. This is literally like what I was taught in dental school in the early two thousands. Yeah I mean I'm trying to think I remember this one number fourteen and and got it out and yeah it was definitely blown up. Pretty sure I did my. I'm just out of routine worst-case scenario. I'm always thrown in a plug. In and doing the criss cross suture over it. Some pretty sure sure I did that. Probably I don't know I'm always kind of anal about just telling people when something like that like I. I just want them to hear it from me before they hear it from freaking Google. MD like when that one is the worst case scenario Urwah did not that it didn't exist but it was pretty minor. People weren't the way they are now with. Okay women I get that. But it's a kind of a different world now and it's just everyone's you know. And they're going to obviously find the most click bait worthy. Yeah Yeah So. The last reply on this post says added perforated sinus for eight months before I did enough research and finally got a referral to an oral surgeon. I've had twenty. Two prescriptions. Four bone grafts and a buckle. Flap surgery my cheek is literally attached my gums. In those eight months I had severe migraines lasting four days each side face paralysis. Left's eye swelling also had horrible taste in my mouth for months demand that they fixed or free to someone. You can't fix it immediately. The longer you wait the harder it is going to be too close it. I would agree to that if it's a big one. Yeah I mean if it's a blown out yeah that's yeah. That's a buckle fat graft. Yeah that's that's not the same thing as we're just trying to do a simple extraction number fourteen and then you noticed that at the palatal route was in the sinus and and Yeah Hey it's communicating A. That's it's pretty much can resolve on its own with with very minor effort but at the same time sometimes those even go south and then in need the the buccal fat pad and so he should happens. Yeah I obviously I mean. No one wants to try to do that. Have you ever put a route and a sinus now. I don't think so I've done it twice. One was like at nine o'clock at night. Oh Wow at an emergency clinic okay. Okay it was like a spindly distal book read on Lake Number. Three and number fourteen was in the sinus or just Under the membranes Nigerian between the the bone and this Nigeria memory it was still connected. No I'm sorry it was actually in the sinus. Okay so I had like. It was nine o'clock at night night. There was no one to help. There was no world surgeon around that. Was You know where I could send anybody to. So I had them like move his head around and when he moved a certain way I could see it and I was able to get like some cotton force during get it and not you know. Put like a collar plug or Gel foam or something in their Andreas. texting me on the phone. Saying Gel foam is just to help clot clot. You're putting garbage in there. You should just leave it open. While boss. We were taught at different schools. We were taught put something in it. Just keep something in between so I put like a call plug or something like that in their suited up SOM- back at my office is this is an emergency clinic So it back in my office a week later whatever and everything was fine. Yeah they'll uh other one I did was not that long ago and it was like A. Va Voucher patient. They sent him to a surgery and it was like number fifteen Indo treated. It was a palatal route and that was a huge sinus exposure in that thing was still connected to the membrane. That's the only way I got it out and so is able to get it get a hold of it. pull it out and then packed it. With I put a membrane down and suture that membrane closed host or your debt membrane in place and then saw him back if you say to remove the membrane and everything looked okay. It was a big one and I told him I K. If this doesn't doesn't I'M GONNA have to send you for for graft at a surgeons office call buckle fat graft and fortunately it did is young healthy guy. Uh but I've always done something you know and and so I'm sure that at some point you know if you take out enough teeth you're GONNA put one inter put a route in the scientists or put a tooth and sinus and get it it and I guess I guess you've got to get that to a surgeon right I get..

"Now we don't want to question Russian do Lance. Maybe maybe once we don't want to bring questions liquids the best airline. 'cause y'all know that Frontier Airlines is the greatest the airline of all time. We what the questions that Gordon Christianson cannot answer. Do you think Gordon Christensen has ever been on a Frontier Airlines flight. Not on purpose. There may have been in a time because I I I don't know for sure but I feel like there's out like the salt. Lake City seems like it would be one of those destinations that frontier here would be in and out of La. It's right next door so it's it's going. Yeah so maybe there's like a the same situation I had where the Delta flight doesn't get out or is delayed eight or whatever and he's got to hop on something else to get in. That may be the only way. That Gordon's been on frontier. Read read question one. Reddit users skinny legend. Evan asks can I become a dentist. If I'm a slow person that's it. That's that's all tests. Can I become a dentist. If I'm a slow person well you'll probably get into. HFS You. I can tell you that they did. Clint get into Oh issue. I don't think he applied there. Okay I was going to say that's about to be a tough look for Clint. If you said no that's why he had to go you. I want to be politically correct this because this has the tenant this this this subject matter could typically go off the rails. Yeah and so. I'm just going to try to use like movie references. Okay all right. Here's I need to uh I need some explaining here. Because that's all the information were given. That's the question. There's nothing else that was the whole question. The subject line. That was it okay. Are we talking forrest gump slow. Are we talking. Like three hundred fifty pound left tackle in the NFL slow so are we talking the stats sloth that worked at the DMV Zootopia. Remember that Disney movie. Are we talking that kind of slow or or are we talking about forrest. Gump slow because I there's challenges either way. Yeah Yeah and to be totally honest I it has some classmates that I really wondered if they had velcro shoes or have they have they get out of the set on a lot of the process department and San Antonio or velcro shoes and I think it was just because when you're a seventy five year old process is I don't care if you're ever getting late again I really I just I just think I'm pretty sure that it at that point right right right it just all sorts of cows together team. You're not getting right but yeah so I. I don't not necessarily think that I'm not saying that. Those those prosthetic faculty were dumb. What I'm saying is that they chose not to invest any mental energy into tying their shoes news or impressing the opposite sex? I want okay and velcro shoes accomplished both of those. Yeah yeah it it's a very powerful Mhm Can you imagine the precision and accuracy to which a prostitute honest would make sure that that velcro strap is completely lined up. Flush the part hundred right. No little fibers off one way or another. We have to have alignment on that one. Perfect draw so right. That's right. Yeah so I mean the forest gump slow thing is I mean. We've all met dumb Dennis and I know we've all met slow sort of you know not exactly rocket scientists Dennis like and I think that's fine. I mean I think you can teach this stuff to anybody now. Can you teach like high level complex comprehensive treatment planning. I'm not sure right right. Well then that just becomes. Okay understand your strengths. Stay in your lane. You're you're probably going to be in a practice. Practice may probably not the practice owner. You'll be in a practice where you're going to have your three procedures that you do. Well you're going to do the crowns the fillings and the a pair of extraction. So I don't know I'm there's a lot of things I and I used to shudder at this like when somebody would say you could train a monkey to root canal on. I don't I don't know if that's hundred percent true. Yes it's coming from the guy who doesn't do root canal. You can't turn me but among Capuchin sure of course right absolutely I mean some Marmoset sure no problem that you know that that opposable tail really could make a difference in You know while filing I hope that you know I don't know but I'm sure there are. I have just run across it. Maybe it's not even like mentally slow or whatever it's just don't care right like I think that's even more sort of detrimental like I think if you care care and you put effort into it. It doesn't matter if you're if you're you know don't absorb information the same way that most other students do and maybe have to spend spend more time on it like if you're willing to put in that work. I think none of that stuff matters. I agree yeah the other thing is is that I absolutely believe that there are idiot savant. Dentists what I mean by this is like people who are freaking maestros with the hand piece but don't necessarily the understand the intricacies of treatment planning on staging and phasing and all of that other stuff that like spear teaches in that choice teaches and all that kind of stuff but man they pick up a freaking Han apiece and they're just like one with the one with the hand piece right and they do these amazingly beautiful. Perhaps but you know so so got maybe maybe this person is one of those people. Yeah it could be I could. I wouldn't let it stop me from at least trying. Yeah you never want to live life in regret and what if you know. Put your best foot forward and see how it goes in. Come up the plan. B If it doesn't the thing is this like when you're having to learn a lot of the like two inch college like three inch or four inches deep but miles wide right right. So you're having to learn a little bit about like cellular biology and histology and genetics and bio Cam and literature and sociology and Psychology in American history and geography. And you're having to learn about all this kind of stuff in your in. Your attention is is is spread so thin versus dental school were. Yeah I mean it's a mile and a half deep but it's three inches wide right and so you know maybe that actually when you can just turn your focus that way like I hate telling somebody no. You can't do this right. 'cause I just don't think that that's necessarily well. There's too many stories of people who despite the advice of don't do it don't do it. Went ahead and did it anyway and are totally successful. Yeah so I if if you really want it that also that desire and drive as a lot of value as well so that your lifelong goal than Bahrain's shoe fort man shoot for the stars would know. Is that shoot for the stars. And maybe he'll miss and end up on the moon or something like that seems horrible. I don't know if I want to go to the moon. Hold and Ashy Gray is they're they're bleached white flag flag footprints garbage. Like I don't know but I. I see the sentiment of that point. There's a a a really great restorative dentistry in San Antonio named Brian Schroeder. Okay he runs my Seattle stay club. He's freaking he is he's choice guys. These super intelligent. Andy's a freaking my shirt with a hint piece and it just pisses you off okay. But he's he has this whole lecture called confessions of a former I single tooth dentist Talks about how he was awakened to the idea of comprehensive dentistry in doing sort of bigger broader plans the actual ideology problems instead of just slapping a crown toothless crack great right but he talks about how he thinks that the dumbest people in the class should be the ones that specialize. Because it's like you're obviously can't grasp all of this learn this one thing we're in this one little thing and just learn that and only do that do endo like you obviously are not smart enough to to do to know about Ortho and Perreault and all these. He's other things that go into it. You just go learn how to move a file up and down monkey young and and and the rest of the smart ones in the class will be restorative dentists. Yeah and as a restored Dennis. Of course that's like music deniers right. I think that's for sure but I totally see where like maybe that I think the system is maybe kind of wrong where the number one person they class goes and does Ortho which is just a freaking assistant doing everything anyway right. Yeah that's exactly right. Maybe we maybe we have at the wrong way. Maybe we have at the bottom. Five people on the clash go. Do I think you're racial TV. That's a good point. Hadn't thought of it but now that you say that that makes sense specialist at me what do you think are you guys dumb No I'm kidding. Don't have any police. I don't care I really. Don't let's check into Let's chicken this this homeboy here and other question dentistry in dental school are there certain classes we have to take to graduate. There are many dental classes in dental school. Louis take one four year program or multiple sets an easy one. You take whatever they give you you. Can you do them all you do all you do everything. You guys have selective sweet selectives did you know yes so we had like electives and stuff so oh shit. You could do an Ortho selective if you wanted to kind of between you do like between sophomore junior year between junior and senior year I did I. I did Pero surgery selectives. So they taught me different. Flap designs in different suturing techniques. And all that kind of stuff like we did a crown lengthening. We didn't aesthetic aesthetic crown. Lengthening like we tr- we tried. We did a bunch of stuff like that to Kinda learn. See what sucks is is. You don't realize the value of that until you Luke Donald School right all you wanna do drink beer and play golf. Yeah three years later. You let your Buddy Shit. I wish someone would have shown how to do. Flap design right. Because how much does that cost right. Exactly exactly that's like looking back on it. I would have done every single bottle. If I could do dental school over again I would actually learned a shit ton of valuable all things instead of the right. Yeah Yeah we'll get into that. That's question three today. Oh Okay Yeah. So how about this all right another question dentistry from twenty. He's seven days ago. Okay so the one that that we talked about today was from today. Can I go dentist. Obama slow person. Okay then the Indian school are there certain classes Blah Blah. That one's from twenty one days ago from twenty seven days ago. What should I know about dentistry before I actually pursue the path question? Hey like what. What rigors it takes to get into dental school with your undergrad scores need to be your dat scores? Need to be all that stuff jeff. How much debt? You're going to have to take out where your options are to go to dental school. What your options are? When you're done you know all that kind of stuff off? Those are all right. So that's that's twenty seven days ago twenty eight days ago. Get this in the suburb of pre pharmacy. I'm doing a project on how to become a pharmacist. I wanted to know where all what are all. The things pharmacists to on a day to day basis basically everything. They do in their span working as a pharmacist so he went from in one day from wanting to be a form assist in wanting to be a dentist like literally Wedneday. Well maybe he whatever he learned about pharmacy he was like. Oh fuck that shit looking at dentistry. So here's one month ago. That's two days before the last pre pharmacy. The question. Okay in the Pharmacy so I am currently fifteen years old and in high school and I'm aiming to be a pharmacist. Is it possible to volunteer at a pharmacy at my age. With no experience on.

"It's it's much worse than your for his impression. But I was listening to a little bit of of the government co- audio book and at the end Governo references all the Oscars. I need to hear this days. Just one more thing to tell and that is when they decided decided to make a movie of my life story. That is unusual. Even for me somebody got wind of the fact that I am idiot. Who who has made good and in these days is what they call a man bites dog sort of story? So one day these Hollywood producers comment for me. I am going to be in the motion pictures. Well a lot of you know the rest they done made the show and everybody all over the world went to see it. Well finally it become the night to go to the Academy Awards Show in California and I took everybody. That was my friends there and we set in audience. I even got to set with Bubbas folks and damn if the pitcher didn't win most of the academy the awards and at the end after they get through thanking everybody else they decided to thank me to they was a Mr Letterman as the host. A Nice Feller with big picket teeth and a trick dog and Shit and as the last item on the menu so to speak he announces they is. He's a special award for Oh forrest gump for being the most lovable certified idiot in America and I am called to the stage in after they. Give me the award Mr Letterman asked if they is any thin I would like to say to the TV cameras. And in fact they is and I've been been saving it up as so I look out there on all them fancy dresses and expensive jewelry and pretty women and handsome men and says the first thing that comes to my mind which is of course I got to pee clearly. He doesn't know how the Academy Awards work. I mean I don't think they give out the awards for the most lovable idiot. So unless it's David Letterman bit. Which I doubt would happen at the end of the joke? They normally top load the bits well. I'm really impressed. By your fact checking given that in his book as I already told you he befriends Saddam Hussein. But you can tell from the way that this is written. You're right it has much mature sarcastic. Point of view. I mean you're using the passive voice I think really really tellingly. Yeah like I think there's something really interesting about the the most famous line. Life is like a box of chocolates. The line of the book. Look the first book is let me see this. Being an idiot is no box of chocolates. That's very different sentiment. I mean incredibly really different. It's kind of this movie even say it's based on this book to be honest point. I think all of the changes in emissions say a lot about what American audiences want to see and what they don't I mean you're one hundred percent right now as film has kind of Gone Past. It's time you know and we can reflect on it. It's been I think. Thank you the same way that you and I are looking at this film. But it premier magazine called it one of its twenty most overrated films of all time also on the list Nashville with was eighty writer. Two Thousand and one and gone with the wind delicious though. I don't agree with most of these choices. How do you wrestle with a film home with this? That I think we've not dealt with. That culturally is more significant than the film is good. I mean I think maybe by listening to the people who do love love this movie. Okay Yeah I can only as this podcast is going on. We have a lot of people yelling at their stereo. I think it's time to give them a chance to see yell into the episode and Tell us their or defense of forrest. Gump I don't know if I can give you reasons why forrest gump should be on the guy but I can tell you. I like it as a movie movie. I think it's a very sweet epic so epic films are so sad and so horrible and forrest Gump is just a nice sweet little vision of what one person can achieve in a lifetime and I think that's that's really that's really nice. I think it's a good message in a film Tom The other thing I really like about it is I love the The American history that you've got throughout the film. It's really cool to watch all of those. Those things in American history happened through the eyes of her. I the history nerd. It was really cool when I was a kid. I still feel like the movie Should it be on the list. I don't know but I certainly enjoy watching it And I enjoyed watching it again so forrest. GUMP is one of my favorite movies. He's a long time one of my top ten favorite movies. I love Tom Hanks. In that movie he's brilliant as forrest. Gump the music is amazing and I love enforced in the fact that he remains constant throughout the changing world that he's surrounded by is is not not one of the best cities is beautiful. It is wonderful to watch if motion are almost Tom Hanks to that. Is this National Robin. My if you the food and that and this lovely traffic watch. I grew up on the Gulf coast. I went to the University of Alabama I featured it really. He is revolutionary in terms of special effects. it's a heartwarming. Optimistic started about a truly outstanding security which can be really easy to claim as cheesy cheesy as they cynical world but It's hard not to get wrapped up in his. Just good nature. And yes the history that he participate centers wonky and maybe a little little wrong and could spend the wrong message but I think the character force themselves spreads all the right message wall. Hey guys so as far ars forrest Gump goes visit belong. I don't know but for me. It has all the makings of a decent film. And it's like comfort food in the same way that like my mom's pancakes aren't really GonNa win any awards and baking competitions but because I grew up with them and they have a special place and they have all these wonderful I still eat them even though they're not the best thing kicks in the world on top of that. I think that we can't ignore Mike. Is's attention to detail you know like the the the fact that the pass it officiates at force. Jenny's wedding is the same pastor that owned that runs the church. That force donated all the money to publishers for the new roof. For the fact that at the end of the film he still has the old gum mailbox that was there for the entirety of the film or the fact that in every single photo of force taken his iser closed impassioned some poor photographer trying to do a spread for Time magazine or Congressional Medal of honor winners or whatever trying to coast this poor man to keep is open for just one photo and and those kind of details or what the Mike is known for and and I think those things make it a movie that's worth watching just for the entertainment value forrest Gump is a film has generated an exponential amount of criticism ranging from the snarky comments from outlying critics during his day due to the problematic observations. People can easily make today despite my agreement with many of these criticisms I saw this movie during my formative years and cannot seem to unload unloaded. It was telling when I saw the curious case of Benjamin Button another film from the same screenwriter during my twenties and got all the same fields and I clearly howdy Eddie from this for rich. Well paced narration accompanied by Clever Editing Gorgeous Cinematography and beautiful music. All on a service of making long passages. I'm like I did a song or something less chaotic than the random craziness that like it bottom line. This movie is comfort food. This still seems to work for me when I was growing up. It was my grandmother's listed as one of them had feared dementia and we were lucky out by or she crazy that she would cry a lot and one of the things in the world stop. Crying was play are V. Hr trying to copy for. And I know that is totally anecdotal evidence. But I don't actually have a problem and with fairly terrible being on the list to grandmother from crying so that's also also casting those are really great Calls and I think it it triggered me what I have a connection into in this film is that it is. It's a fun movie to watch. It feels light and nice and sweet and optimistic was a word I really loved. Yeah like they do have so many callers. made the illusion of this film as being food you'd have nourishing them in some sort of away like pancakes and I think there's a slot for that. I I have films that I would not put on the topless. I feel fill me up while I was going to say I wouldn't want to take all the cracker barrel off the interstate. I mean that's that's comfort food. That's the best comfort food. I've never been to one. Amy GotTa get yourself to a cracker barrel. It's so good good. Did one of the callers say that this was Tom. Hanks thanks at his most smashed You didn't feel it. I mean I got that yet. Amy All wanted to do was ride. That I wanted to ride forrest gump into the bone zone zone. Wow that's a sequel. That should exist name zone bone zone okay. So there's one more call I would like to listen to. This is from This is a call from somebody who very near and dear to our hearts. This is from Kim trucks. Yes we love. Kimchi is the person and behind all of our amazing photoshop. Easy on instagram and on twitter She does one for every one of her films. And and you've actually all work on our website at UNSCHOOLED POD DOT com. Yes she is one hundred one thousand one billion percent the best and she has her own very personal connection to forrest gump. it's contractual I'm the one that it creates. The episode Artie Tweak I don't really like four is gone but I wasn't college in Savannah while they were filming movie We would go watching film all the time and they probably see Yada out of the background somewhere because we constantly were riding our bikes through the sets just to get to class But the popularity of the movie really brought a ton more tourism to Savannah and everybody just wanted to come see see that bench and Sort of forced the city to really clean up and revitalize a big part of it. That was sort of in bad shape and rundown and abandoned Handan. So even though I don't really like it as a movie and it's definitely shouldn't be on the list I sort of have a soft spot for it and probably always will a little bit so thanks guys. I love that point of view that forrest gump. As an action of changes it has a place to help urban development You know who would have thought I. I really like that too and you know what. I'm just going to pick a random extra whose face I can't see and I'm is going to decide that. Is Kim my head. forevermore will thank you Kim and make sure you follow her on all the social media things Because she's just the best and we couldn't didn't have a big part of our show without her which is amazing pieces of art your instead of reading a night of us we usually do. Let's not I think I think we you've been voice. Let's just have that Stan as a positive voice and I do want to say actually recently As a website try to figure out state by state what the most popular films of the nineties. Were you know by looking like what's what are people watching. What are people renting and all of these different states and forrest? GUMP does happen to be the number one nineties movie for the people. I Love Mississippi Alabama Georgia in South Carolina. They all love forrest gump. Still I also by the way if you want to know the other the other the other state facts. Here's a couple of Florida. Likes men in Black Black Ohio liked home alone. Colorado says Austin powers. Alaska says Terminator Two Oklahoma of Courses Twister California where the state of Mrs Doubtfire in in Nineteen States. Most of the East Coast my birth state of Michigan. They say titanic and look this movie works. It does work in in listening to everybody. Say how they feel about it But can I just say how much more interesting with this movie. You've been if someone Terry Gilliam directed it because he was attached. Jerry Seinfeld was attach. Attach Terry Gilliam would have been the interesting. One probably would never have been finished but but also absurdist absurdity really fits the time of the book. We need something. I'm here. Yeah I mean this movie takes this story at face value right absolutely a face value. It's like Boris would have a lot of us them of not. Tell me how things really worse Russell America must have been okay except for the shootings of famous people..

You're like at two thousand. Who said just listen to the Grapes of Wrath episode a new version should be made about the modern migrant farmers immigrants legal any legal who traveled a farms and work hard to help their families? It would reinforce its relevance it also from facebook Couchepin said while watching this movie they they could not get walking dead out of their head interesting. Yeah that he asks can I.

Grapes of Death made in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight about a young woman who discovers wine made from contaminated grapes that turn people into decomposing zombies.

That's a little bit Plenty no but maybe we should watch out and amy This week we are talking about forrest gump and there are some interesting similarities between Grapes of Wrath. I'm forrest gump. And one of them is that Bruce springsteen seems to you have a strong opinions about both last week. You brought up the album ghost of Tom. Jody was inspired in part by Grapes of Wrath. And and there's also song on this album That is inspired by forrest. Gump seems like Bruce Springsteen Thought The forest made a mockery of the working man and wrote the last song on the album about him. So thank you. Martin t that's marking Till this for bringing this to our tension but take a little listen to this. Anti far scum come saw last like a box of chocolates..

Trump prepares for 'productive' talks with Xi on trade war
"President trump is at the g. twenty summit in soccer japan this week and on saturday he'll have a crucial meeting with china's president xi jinping those trying to negotiate a truce on trade after this trade war that stretched on for about a year with me now is clear williams in april he stepped down as deputy director at the national economic council there he was the lead trade negotiator for the u._s. at summits including the g twenty he's now a partner at the law firm aitken gump thanks for coming in thank you all right so let's get people up to speed this week treasury secretary steven mnuchin said the u._s. was quote ninety percent of the way there on reaching a deal with china we have certainly heard that before you were the guy who did these deals is this meeting at the twenty actually likely to close a deal i don't think it's going to close a deal i think the most likely outcome that you're gonna have is that the leaders are gonna agree to restart talks to try to get back to where they were in may before things broke down and probably for some indefinite period of time to agree to refrain from further escalation but i do want to stress that is far from a done deal and it's really going to depend on how these leaders interact with each other in the meeting that they've got tomorrow okay that's really interesting because president trump has said if deal can't be reached he's going to put more tariffs on your saying what might happen is he just holds off on that i think if the meeting goes well that he's going to be willing to hold off however if the meeting goes poorly i think he's made clear that he would be willing to further escalate this and ten percent tariff is what he signaled and is the threat of tariffs likely to be weighing on president she's mind as they go into this meeting he thinking yeah absolutely i think that the u._s. has done here is they've tried to create leverage with china the problems that president trump is raising with president xi for technology transfer i._p. theft these are things that the u._s. has been concerned about for a long time and the problem had been that we had had negotiated these issues with china and then china didn't follow through and so president trump's view is that we need to define a way to have additional leverage over china and he's done it with these tariffs now i think what you're seeing is that president xi is under a lot of pressure china's economy isn't doing as well as it has been in past years the tariffs have contributed to that and so that is going to be weighing on his mind and i think that creates an incentive for china to try to find a way to get out of the situation despite china's economic worries and they are real the wall street journal reporting that china's gonna come to this meeting with a specific set of preconditions for a deal they want an end to this policy implemented by the trump administration which bans american companies from selling technology to the chinese firm way do you think this administration is likely to negotiate on hallway well i mentioned before that i think what is going to be determinative here in terms of whether we restart negotiations or whether we have an escalation is going to be how those conditions are presented how the leaders interact with each other i think if president she comes into the meeting and says absolutely unequivocally the u._s. needs to drop tariffs it needs to fix walkway and it needs to do all these other things i think that's going to be a bad situation if on the other hand president she says these are my priorities can you help me out here can you show me some flexibility i think you could have a productive meeting and then with with wow way in particular that is a tricky issue and the administration has been clear that why is national security threat and that action needs to be taken to prevent while away from being part of the u._s. network now whether or not there's flexibility in terms of doing business with the company at all that may be a different question i think you you theoretically at least can distinguish saying they can't be part of our networks from they can't build cellphones in china and we're not going to give them any components for their cell phones those are different things in my mind the journal also reports that the chinese will likely ask the u._s. to drop the tariffs it's implemented so far that liquid happen not in the short term what the united states has said and they've been clear is that china in the past hasn't followed through on commitments it made we need some sort of tool to check their implementation and that's what the tariffs are going to be used for so an immediate term dropping the tariffs i don't see that maybe if after some period of time china does follow through our commitments that's where we'll go this meeting comes at a time when more and more american businesses are talking a against the existing tariffs on china they're saying these are really hurting us and especially including about the proposal to to impose even more this week n._p._r. talk to a florida businessman named mark morgan he runs a company that makes smartphone accessories and he was telling us that the trade war with china has forced him to actually lay off workers meet me play that we're down to six employees now we were at eleven and then just could not support the payroll in the overhead expenses i mean there is really a lot at stake here and i wonder can the president of ford politically economically to hit china with tariffs again right well i'll be the first to acknowledge that there is an impact of tariffs on the u._s. economy but what the president is doing here is he's trying to create a long term situation where the unfair practices that china's engaging in that hurt those very same businesses and workers aren't going to aren't allowed to go on anymore and really the question is are we in a position economically to be able to sustain the short term pain in order to have long term gain of a more fair trading situation
"gump" Discussed on Zero Blog Thirty
"And I was like holy shit. I didn't even know there was a real life force. I expected the due to actually be named Forrest Gump medal of onerous or the story based on it. So whenever I started listening to Sammy Davis story. I was like, really disappointed because he idiot. Going to be somebody who spoke slow just like Forrest Gump. But that's not what happened. So they are using military dot com is using a little bit of fake the funk, I'm gonna say, it's fake news com. I'm accusing fake news. Because the only thing this guy did in forest Gump was they used his body, whenever Lyndon Johnson, hangs, the medal of honor, our, our LBJ. I'm sorry. Lyndon johnson. Fun. So whenever Lyndon Johnson hangs the medal of honor around. Davis's neck. They took off Davis's head and put on Tom Hanks, head to make the scene. Look, really realistic. First of all, I think in PC culture. Now, if you did that people would be pissed if you took an actual mill of honor recipients ceremony in put put an actress head on it. I think people would be upset about it. Seth rogan. I hate to say if you're probably right, it's, it's terrible. But I mean that was just a little movie magic. And that was, what was maleable to them in one thousand nine hundred four so, but you're right. I think people would get out of shape now. Than when he started talking that he was gonna tell. Well, I I'm from Greenville, Alabama. I went to Alabama, then I went blade Alabama. I'm at bear Bryant, but it was just him walking in time, click bait from military dot com. Big tired much. So I mean, I knew I always knew Forrest Gump was the movie was based on the book by Winston groom, and it was a one hundred percent fiction, obviously, if there was one person who had experienced all those major historical events in our country. We would know that person's name, but I did not know however, this part about Sammy Davis, and how was groom used him as the inspiration for the Vietnam part, which even that was very loosely because he said he was right then. And right. Or as was essentially just a grunt. Smarter. This story is real carrying three people out is whenever you're allowed gig, 'cause they don't talk nearly enough about how long these guys in Vietnam could be patrolling to the jungle. What your feet must have felt like look like instill have just a guttural instinct to pick people up and carry them to save the what a story, I'm glad we got to share it with you, incredible from toxic people realize how difficult that is like, if you're listening right now, find a buddy this weekend and asked to pick them up and just go run twenty five melting not outcome. Health actor anything just Doug weight. Did deadweight just go run twenty five yards? Now imagine there are people trying to kill you. There's explosions going on everywhere, and you're for teed from battle day, and you can imagine just puts a little more perspective on how brave this met there in full combat battle rattle. You're in full combat battle rattle.
"gump" Discussed on /Film Daily
"Just everything about it is is straight. So Eric Roth who wrote the first Forrest Gump, and he won an Oscar for it actually did an interview recently, and the the the concept of Forrest Gump to came out. And he revealed he actually wrote a whole script for it. And he turned the script in on September tenth the day before nine eleven, and you know, he said it was canceled. The movie basically was canceled because of nine eleven after nine eleven happened. They just decided there was no reason to make the movie the America chain. Changed so drastically and so on, but even without that this script is sounds utterly insane. Because he dropped some details about first of all the movie starts off with Forrest Gump, son, the son he had with a Jenny Robin rights character in the first film. It's revealed that he has aids because Jenny died of aids and right away. It's like is this really how you you wanna start your movie with Forrest Gump kid having aids? And then that's it resting. It is and then he said Eric Ross says he ties the aids thing into like. Desegregation where we're like. Because apparently when they when the sun finds out he has aged around the time when desegregation happening, and they make apparently a joke about it. How forest thinks they don't want his kid in school because of aids I don't know it just sounds really rather like seat steak and saying, yeah, I just it's not it's not good. And then from there just gets stranger where forest becomes a ballroom dancer for some reason. And he dances with Princess, Diana. And then at one point he ends up in the back of OJ Simpson's Bronco during the pig chase. And then I read the script to find out how they explain I am curious lay eyes on this bunker script, and then later in the film forest befriends, a native American woman and. It's just like reading this breaking my brain. So eventually, she she the native American women. He befriends teaches a nursery school inside the Oklahoma City building that was part of the Oklahoma City bombing. And he says there was a shot where forest is sitting on a bench waiting for her to the meet her for lunch and the building is in the background and the building explodes. And it's like why would you put that? In your movie, this is so upsetting. I don't I don't think anyone would like this. And I'm glad it was never made it. I haven't seen Forrest Gump in, you know, probably a decade at this point. But most of the situations for sound himself in we're kind of like these funds situations. I I mean, I guess, you know, the war is not fun. Yeah. Like, vietnam. And I mean, you know, there's like Vietnam is like the only really, but he was harassed attack in like like, you know, one of the most notable. Suspected murderers on the run out. This just seems like a bad idea from start to finish. This is like the gremlins to a Forrest Gump where it it takes the first movie, it just makes it really weird and dark. HD? Would you have watched this Forrest Gump sequel? No when Christmas ascribing all of those things, I had like a visceral reaction to God sounds just if the first movie while like, it took a light hand to a lot of all those events if it was insensitive to sort of racial and social issues throughout history afford this dislike I dunno takes a sledgehammer to them. Like, I mean, even before Chris finishes his sentence. He's like, and then he befriends an African American woman. I'm like. Where's this going? You know, it might intros almost going to say, thankfully, this was canceled because of nine eleven batting wanna make a joke about nine eleven but. Actually, I wrote this story. I originally had in the opening thankfully were spared this movie, and then I realized that's probably wrong word because we can't thank nine eleven. But I am thankful. This was not made. Yeah. Maybe in the darkest time line. But at least we're not in the time line where forest Gump to aid. Yes. Thank you. Although of anybody has the script for Forrest Gump to please send it to Peter at slash home dot com. I'd love to. To read some of it. I would love to have a good laugh..
US launches national security probe into titanium sponge imports
"Begin today with some metallurgy and some national security trade policy specifically section two thirty two of the trade expansion act of nineteen sixty two as amended there's a lot in that sense. So let me explain the aforementioned section to thirty two lets the president impose tariffs at his discretion on certain imports that he or eventually she decides are essential to national security, which is to say American national security demands this country have its own industries in the tariff items make sense. All right. That is the legal grounding for the president's tariffs last year on steel aluminum section to thirty two now to the metallurgy. The Commerce Department says under section two thirty two it's looking into putting tariffs on imports of something called titanium sponge, except this time it's not acting at the behest. Out of the White House. It's a company called time. It that's doing the asking the only manufacturer of titanium sponge in the United States. Marketplace's Mariel cigar takes it. From there Tatum. Sponge is a raw form of titanium that's used in a lot of military equipment helicopter, blades jet, airframes and engines tank armor, Jennifer Hillman, teaches at Georgetown law the companies that make those things imports sixty percent of the titanium they need from other countries and tie met. Again. The only company in the US that makes titanium sponge is arguing because it's used in all of these military applications that is an essence threat to the national security of the United States. If a Commerce Department agrees, the president could impose tariffs on titanium imports, but Barent Jansen a trade lawyer at Eakin Gump says there's bound to be some pushback for one thing, the US gets most of its titanium from Japan and Japan, of course, is one of the. Closest military allies of the United States tie. Mets argument is a little different from the one that Trump administration used to justify tariffs on imported steel and aluminum in those cases, the administration said the country needs healthy steel and aluminum sectors to have a strong economy. Johnson says that's a controversial reading of the law. What we're seeing? Now really is a is a stretching of the statutory concept of national security to include economic security. In other words, he says the administration has been using the national security argument as an economic policy tool.
'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

Usain Bolt makes football debut for Central Coast Mariners in 6-1 win
"Did you see you sane bolt debuted for an Australian professional soccer club football club? Maybe as they might call cylical. Yeah, and it got me thinking. Okay, so you same bolts really fast. We all know this could agai like you saying maybe not specifically you say bolt, but a speedster like him. Ever make it on an NFL roster. I know we've tried this in the past skeets Nehemiah. That's the name. You need a Google skeets. The Amaya. Yes. I know we've tried this in the past, but I'm just saying like with the elite speed like that, it made me think, could we see you sane both in a different sport, you know, they're attract stars that have done it in the NFL. Bob Hayes was probably one of the originals of the did it. There have been others Willie Gault that for the Chicago Bears, he from Tennessee an Olympian, I believe. So there have been sprinters, but they played some football, a guy like you seen bolt. He grew up playing soccer, so his version of football. I mean, he's not a strange sport to him, but he groped doing that. You can't just take a track star that's not played football and say, hey, you're so fast. You should just run by people and then we'll teach you to catch the foot of any of the sports. Like I think that football make the most sense American football. Because you have to learn one thing. Well, I mean. Obviously have to learn the ins and outs. Oversimplify I began one thing catch the football. There's no way you could say, put him on the NBA court, say just run by everybody while dribbling the basketball and then lay it up in. No, it's not gonna work. You couldn't go and say, hey, once you get on base in major league baseball, just steal the basis. Well, you gotta get on base. I, there are certain players there, certain things, physical attributes that you can teach somebody to go ahead Manute, bold and play a lot of basketball as a kid, but it's hard to teach seven, seven. So there are certain attributes that you can, but in speed, you think is one for football receiver, but you just can't do it on speed alone. There's so many other elements to it. I agree with you from the standpoint of, okay, now take this great athlete and make him a soccer player. He's never dribbled a ball with his feet. He's never kicked, didn't play organized soccer. Now make this player a great, make this athlete, a great soccer player, make this athlete hitter in baseball, make this athlete, a basketball player. Those. Elements you probably couldn't do it, but I don't. I'm over simplifying played some football. Yeah. It certainly helps for sure would help. I know I'm over simplifying it. I just thought when I saw you sane bolt play in a soccer match, I thought I would love to just see him on what just throw a. Are you same bolt to see what happens now? What he'd probably drop it? Sure. But if you if you let him practice that skill set. 'cause I mean, I know there are a lot of things that go into it, but you just have to run by the other guy, catch the football running. A lot of people right now who don't know you go, that guy is flipping rano of all the spin. I'm here to tell those people. I know John and you are right? He is crazy. What's a kid right off the bat. I understand there's an over simplification of this, but when it does come down to it, you run faster than the other guy catch. Just keep brought it force. Gump it into the end zone.
"gump" Discussed on Thrivetime Show | Business School without the BS
"So you can achieve both time and financial freedom. But the one drawback I have found to helping people. The one problem chop I've found to helping people chief financial freedom is this once somebody achieves financial freedom, some people don't know what to do next. There's a scene from Forrest Gump Forrest Gump, the epic movie starring Tom Hanks, where he discovers that he's rich and so Captain Dan, his buddy, let's know that he took some of the money that forest gave him and invested it in a fruit company. In the fruit company has done well, and so he's rich and so forth. Gump was asked by somebody, you know, how do you feel now that you're, you know, wealthy and your financial free what he is, but it's just one less thing to think about. And so, and that's all it is. That's the whole point of a business is to have one thing to think about. That's all it is only reason for starting company. And so there's a psychological term called flow state and then has a take on this. There's there's a cycle. There's a a term that psychologists use called flow state, and it is a state of mind or a state of being where you feel energized focused full involvement and joint in the process or the activity that you're doing. An essence flow is characterized by having complete absorption in what one does, and then you as a result lose track of space and time because you're just having such a good time. And so I challenge you Mr. listener to implement the three action steps that were teaching today. MRs listener, I challenge you to implement the three action steps that we're going to teach today because my goal, my prayer, my hope is to help you not just. Financial success. I mean, what would be the point of having all the money in the world? If you didn't have of you didn't enjoy it. If you didn't enjoy the time freedom that you have. And I see a lot of business owners that I've helped achieve financial freedom in the literally say to meeting, they'll say, this is goes, they'll say, hey, I have question and I'll say what, and they'll say, I, I have a lot of money and I don't know what to do with my day. I don't know what to do. I, I'm bored and I'm feeling frustrated 'cause I don't know what I should be doing. And so I kind of go into the office and screw some things up. And I I, I've been networking a lot now and I'm kind of I don't know what I don't have a role. I don't. I don't feel like looking for some self worth. Right, right, right. And so what is your take on flow state? Plus eight is something I'm familiar with because I play guitar, play music, and I have before even learned of this concept..
