Fresh update on "haas" discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Yep. Ben, do you remember the shorts? We should just talk about shorts for the rest of the episode. Who thought that was a good idea? Yeah, man. Oh yeah, shorts. We were definitely we would have talked so much about the shorts. We were talking so much about the belt list pants. We were talking about that for hours. You know? Yeah, I mean, I guess you asked who thought that was a good idea. I guess it was Bill vek, who thought it was a good idea. And Bill vek also came up in this thread, and yes, Bill vek would have given us a ton of material. In fact, when I read vek as in wreck his memoir, some time ago, it did come up on the podcast. I remember talking about it, repeatedly and writing about it at baseball perspective too, because so many things he said were so fascinating that might be my favorite baseball book. It's certainly up there even some of it is exaggerated. He is an owner that you could actually kind of root for and sympathize with not that he was all great, but he was also more of a family small business type owner and he had quite a few interesting ideas and was a character and was willing to try anything to drum up interest and also win games. So any number of Bill vex schemes or marketing ideas have been big for the podcast too. And Eddie Goodell came up here speaking of Bill vek and just some of the other players, you know, Pete gray and Jim Abbott, players who were anatomically singular in some way in the annals of major league history. Certainly would have been something that we discussed on the podcast as well. What else do we have here? I mean, all of the various relocations over the years. I feel like would have been grist for the mill. We definitely would have spent a lot of time on that. You know, I imagine that some of the strange I know that I was not a host at the time, but you know, it's not as if tall's hill didn't get discussed, but when tall's hill started, we would have, right? When was that? One was tall's hill installed. One of the tall hill and the pole. I forget what year that was this 2000, I guess? Yeah. Yeah, I think the hill was fine. It was the pole that was the real problem with the hill, you know? That was what I don't know that I'm on record, but here I am. I think the hill was fine. It was weird and it definitely was an injury risk, but I think the polls. Yeah, I like weird ballpark quirks, but I always felt that was too self consciously quirky. It was like trying to it was the Zoe deschanel of ballpark features. This is what you're saying. The minute pixie dream ballpark, I don't know, it was like the, it was like trying to imitate or be in homage to the old ballparks that had to have weird quirks because they were built into a city block or something. And so they had to. There was no real reason for it to have that and also it was probably not the safest. I mean, certainly, the combination of the slope and the pole. Yeah. It's not the best. I mean, Yankee Stadium used to have like monument park was just in the outfield. Yep. So there were all kinds of weird ballpark obstacles and features that we would have discussed on the show. I'm sure. And someone suggested course field, which we've obviously talked about, but early course field when it first opened pre humidor when it was totally inflating offense in a never before seen way or at least never before seen due to altitude at least. So yeah, that would have been big. Oh, yeah, yeah. Now, what else? What else? Steve Carlton's 1972 season was mentioned when he just sort of single handedly won games for the Phillies when he went 27 and ten for affiliates teams that went 59 and 97. Back then, I guess we would have cared about pitcher wins and it would have been interesting, I think, to chronicle just how much he was winning and the team was losing when he wasn't pitching. Other suggestions here, let's see. Many Ramirez cutting off Johnny Damon's throw. Andy son Einstein being forced to hit after an errant Madden lineup card, he hit an RBI double, the time when two balls were in play at the same time in 1959. Yeah. Someone just suggested mullets. Mullets. Yeah? Yes. Yeah, old Haas rat born pitching every day in 1884, Steve Lyons dropping his pants and someone suggested that the Bill mazer ASCII home run. Yeah, I mean, you know, legendary game events that everyone was talking about, we would have talked about, obviously, whether Nolan Ryan's many no hitters devalued the idea of no hitters. Ron Santos, Hall of Fame, candidacy. I guess many of the overworked tile fame came in catfish hunter being declared a free agent. I mean, yeah, the advent of free agency. And the number of drafts we would have done and speculation about how that would ruin or help baseball and just like what that would look like in which teams would do what that would have been an endless amount of material I'm sure. Yeah, gosh. I mean, think about the year the pitcher. Think about how we were talked about moving the mound and we would have talked about oh yeah, that came up here. Yeah, like the introduction of the designated hitter. Oh my God. You would have gone on and on. You know, I'm not saying that we missed a golden era of effectively wild because effectively wild has been, you know, I'm gonna be a modest and say pretty great. But there's definitely some stuff where you look back and you're like, yeah, that would have been prime effectively wild stuff. Yep. Yeah. Rick ankles career came up here. Sure. That's a good one. Just all aspects of it, that definitely would have come up. I did an interview with him on the ringer MLB show when his book came out, but watching in real time as he developed the yips after being so promising and then came back as a pretty decent position player, yes, that would have been a frequent topic. Night baseball, can you play.
Fresh update on "haas" discussed on The Jim Ross Report
"Either. So what I could do in that situation, he made his path, he's walking on it, and that's kind of where we were. There was no there was no exit interviews. That makes too much sense. So you'd think today you do an exit interview to cover your ass, as far as HR issues are concerned. That was not the case then. Unfortunately, we got some sad news to talk about here. Russ Haas passed away on December 15th 2001, or recently had Charlie Hoss with the Kurt Angle show when they discussed this a lot, but this had to be quite a shock. I know you guys had big plans for them as a tag team, or at least that's my understanding. They were still in developmental at the time, but a couple of Oklahoma boys who wound up being stood wrestlers at seat and all this had to be right up your alley. What do you remember about this? Well, I remember meeting her dad and becoming friends with him. They were living in. I think the funeral was in Houston. Because I attended it. And spent the day with a family and farther night. I thought that was my obligation. And I felt like a service to the family if I was there. And it worked out good. You know, I went to dinner as soon as I had some Mexican food. I remember that. And this tried to turn the tide of so much heartbreak to it's a sad part of life that we all have to go through at some point. And so that's kind of where I was on that deal. I spent two days down there and I think the family really appreciated it. I really had a great relationship with the Charlie and the rest of his dad. I think he was a former either a Secret Service guy or something high level Secret Service type thing. What a hell of a nice guy. And I like their family a lot. I'm glad Charlie doing some wrestling. They were really good. And Russ may have been the better of the tooth. He might have been a little bit more cerebral. Charlie was an outstanding athlete. Yeah, we were going to do some better some of those guys. But it occurred. I thought that was smart. That's not. Yeah. So it was heartbreaking. To get that phone call, it's just terrible. Because he was so young. And he hadn't been sick that we were aware of. And I think that changed maybe the protocol too of now these guys are medically tested. They get physicals and all these things. It should have been done forever. They weren't. So I miss seeing how those guys would have evolved. If a Russ had lived, I think they were going to really good like the Briscoe's. There was a natural chemistry there. And of course you're right, I was biased. My Oklahoma voice, and I just, it broke my heart to have that happen. Passing away at 27 from a heart attack, man, just way, way too soon. Yeah, sound even with couch. Yeah. Deceased. Just absolutely heartbreaking. Let's talk about Triple H for a minute here. You know, you and I have been critical at different times about certain things that happened over the years with hunter, but boy, it just feels like Dave here in the observer really had it out for him. Quote, if there's any doubt that Triple H hasn't mastered playing the game, he managed to keep himself off TV until January 7th is getting a three week build up for his return, where rock only got four days in Austin got one week, but more importantly they'll be coming off low rated shows from December 17th and New Year's Eve. If nothing else, January 7th should provide the usual bounce back after the end of the Monday Night Football season, which is usually worth .2 to .3 all by itself. It's going to be difficult for him to not come out, smelling like a rose. I mean, I'm sure this is more of in reality, hey, we're coming back to Madison Square Garden. The spiritual home of WWE, and why would we not do it there to march towards the Royal Rumble? Why would we do that on New Year's Eve? That doesn't make any sense. So I think this is just sour grapes from Dave here in my opinion. I agree with that Conrad. I mean, the next common sense, the placement. And to say, well, how do you know it worked? I don't remember the ratings that day. But what I do recall is the pot that Triple H got leaving as a heel. Coming back as a not really a surprise, but coming back on that date made all the sense in the world of me. And I could just tell you, I've been around a lot of big pops in my career. I don't recall any pop bigger or more sustained or more passionate than that not in a garden when Triple H came back out. No doubt about it, it was hyped brilliantly. I mean, it really was and promoted just as he said for quite a while..

"In cy young award winner all wrapped into one and what people do not understand is some of the background. When i met max max. It already decided that he was a failure as accustomed build. He had gone one year. It built a few. Nobody bought anything. Andy turned to his fiancee's wife to be sarah and said i can't make a go of this. i'm quitting. I'm going back to being in construction. That was on a monday. And on tuesday the fomer and it was my calling him because i had seen one of his creations in the window of a clothing store in malibu and i said the managers. That's that's just a piece of art. Who did that and he syllabus guy by the name of max day since as you know so yeah yeah i said. Can you give me his phone number his phone number. I called max and that was the first of six projects we did together. And max just exploded on the scene at that point and is probably more so than any other builder in the world today as the finest custom builder and just a sweet guy. He's almost exactly half my atri. Had insides the co build relationship we very much paternalistic still do relationship. Now is father Time you don't want max in. I'll take your job. The list goes on the j donovan whose name we mentioned. J one and j. lives up in british columbia and stacey. I've been up there a few times. J at the age of twenty three created a cycle by the name of manta which is just a hard to put a label on it. You can call it. Brilliant inspire precocious. Whatever but. i'm not sure. Jay would still be building motorcycles if he didn't have a patriot. He's so brilliant. He has so many different talents he could do. College professor at the age of twenty six or twenty seven. Electric bike was remarkable. Thing like stingray. I went up to british lumbia and we sat down. And we said okay. We're gonna blister the industry with an e bike here. Jay had quotes on the wall by plato and so forth about design and architecture. Some design work together. We built the whole thing and the third bike tour in the museum and the third one is set derive friday. We will have the entire j donovan collection. I'll tell you a little story about j. in you don't realize this is just by custom by on the mark you have to go to their shop. You have to see where they live yet to see where they work. We went to british columbia and chase mother and father who are younger than me. But they're sort of like me children of the sixties hippie type they're in the business quote unquote of sagan children who are born with birth defects. That are so serious that the child probably is not gonna literary mom. There were a handful of those children. Round including one by the name of john was not supposed to survive more than a few months. John is now j. brother. He's eleven years old now. He's now in regular school and he adores the ground that the jaywalks walks on. And you go up and see this is what's behind this man. This is what's going on when he's not in his shop. The bike is coming down here. The name we david we gave it is on adidas because he is so reminiscent of mozart is genius in his twenties and we have all three of his works of art. When he's down with this he goes back to his eleven year old brother and teaches amount of talk. That's the nature of what's behind these bikes and what's behind these builders and some of this comes out in the film. I hope the film itself has its own surprises. Not the least of which was of course how things changed based on the pandemic i mean. The whole course of plans was changed. I know you'd had a land speed record in the works. The film itself documents the entire topsy turvy year that we all gone through. What were some of the challenges. And how did the thing actually shakeout for you. Doing the film was an enormous emotional experience. It is everything that is the opposite of harare for hollywood. It is a emotionally grueling experience. The plotlines thematic threads that we designed in advance all or disrupted. The entire world was disrupted by the cova crisis so i was to racist bonneville one. The crowd smith and i had built sidecar. We were going after world record. And i was practicing on the track and covert hit and i decided to suspend racing or the year because of the risks. That gee i could get covid. And i could transmit stacey stacey transmitter kids and so forth and so on. It just wasn't worth it so we had to adapt to that. We had to edit the film in the courts. Covert prices with our crew in new york at three or four different options. And i'm in a different location and so the logistical problems that were in the trump's posed by covid were enormous but it was also a terribly emotional experience in ways that we never anticipated and two of the surprise quote unquote endings came about as a result of that one of which was triggered when stacy in our in california at a shoot. I was not the character being recorded at the time of one of the builders said on film. I don't know what my life would be. Like about bob and it was completely unprompted. I don't know what i would have done it. I don't know what do now stay sandwich back to the hotel. We were staying at and i told the director. I said you need to film me today because you need to fill my reaction to that. Because i was a lot of people would take that as a compliment. I took it as like a yoke around my my shoulders albatross when somebody says. I don't know what i would do without this person in my life when lovers. It's not a throwaway line. I began to realize just why these projects meant to these custom. Builders you're not creating motorcycles they're creating children and many of these builders name these cycles and think of them as their children and they go through just station and when we go through marketing to grow up and they had difficulty party with these oversight bows and now they have a place in the house motor racing where the children and resides like children can go to long term summer camp. They'll be fine. The director of the camp will take care of them and at that point in time that a nice thing. I said this on film that we have to do something different for a custom. Builders these are not just valuable pieces of metal the children and that led to a program which is described in the film at the very end which we kept under wraps until may eighteenth twenty twenty one we filmed virtual meeting of the characters in the film are also custom dovers not all our hustle that our lead coast indoors and we described what we were going to do for them. When i go onto the happy hunting ground and sky or in the earth wherever i go and that is that is one thing that developed and of course a very emotional extent all i can say is that it's an incredibly constructional and moving.

"And now lives in california by the name of search boy know who's both a collector restoration expert in spelter and the conversation was half french and half in english because we each speak broken version of the other fellas native. Tom and he asked me said. Bobby bobby of you ever heard of justice. And i said serta been looking for majestic for two years and he said well i have one of the ones that name he said i wanted to be in your new sane but right now it's just a pile of rubble is just rusty parts. Assessor chevy notes authentic. Because they're very very valuable and he said. I know the story but i wanna see if we can come to an agreement for me to restore this by into place in new same. We came to an agreement in a few minutes. We've done business together before we trust each other. And then he told me the story that the majestic was part of his father's selection affected. Was this father's bike Huge collection in france. It turned out that he and his father decided to restore this pile of rusty parts from scratch and they had all the parts catalog and his father drop. Debt and suresh was so overcome with emotion. They boxed all the parts and couldn't touch arts or about ten years. He decided there was no place worthy of his father's bike once restored but then we had become friends he had seen collection and he said if you will commission me to restore despite i will because i think the new same is worthy of my father's legacy and we did commission it is just drop dead gorgeous by just on display at goma which is the regeneration of the guggenheim exhibit. That took place in brisbane. Australia it was loved by thousands and thousands of guests there so when i walk past majestic see one of the most spectacularly beautiful cycles ever created but i see that story and i think that is emblematic of the bikes that i would label as one that really turn me on.

Listen and subscribe from kurt co media media for your mind. We're back with bobby haas and stacey mayfield on cars that better water talk about your film leaving tracks. It was released earlier this year. That is twenty twenty one in one hundred countries and in eleven languages and it's already garnering awards at international film festivals and quite a bit of claim it's available on multiple streaming platforms. I've seen it a couple of times and notably partial proceeds from the film sales are being donated to an organization called distinguished gentleman's ride which in turn will be helping men's mental health and prostate cancer. Research certainly not something that can be said of most cinematic endeavors. Bobby stacey tell us about leaving tracks and what. It wasn't made you decide that it was time to make such a film. They notion of making a film or doing book was a project that was proposed to us by a number of different directors and producers who had become aware of or have witnessed this meteoric rise of new seeing and of the custom collection from literally the rubble of a building that we were about to bill to worldwide acclaim and being referred to as the hall of fame for custom motorcycles. Some people beginning to refer to it as the finest modem sane in the world so the notion doing the film was proposed to us. A number of different times by different people at emory resisted. That right up until the time that we eventually hooked up with the actual director producer. Nick davis i think we resisted it because the first five or six directors all of whom are quality quality directors. Were more interested in doing a film about success. Excess excess which. I thought i would never go to see. Ot by bad. Because that's evidence. If you just google somebody so why should a film like that. What i thought would be more interesting as a cinematic experience from the audience. Point of view from filmmaker. Point of view is less blend together. The moto background if you will with humanistic themes let's have the motorcycle museum in the motorcycles. Be like the castle of Hamlet it's the background but the real point real juice of the performance is the series of human themes and conflicts. That play out inside the film or in the castle and that was what i wanted to do. I knew i had been through enough trauma and tragedy and setbacks and close calls in my life at many of the custom builders that. that's the real story. It's not just that we have this great museum. It's what preceded that in terms of cardiac and setbacks and health crises and so forth the same with the custom builders the custom builders in our museum are the most famous custom builders in the world today. But i know these men and women well enough to know that. They just barely escaped drowning in their own. Financial problems emotional problems. Family comes whatever it might be and in that sense. There was real connective tissue between myself and the mostly men but also women that we could unite the film around the things. I shoved the narrative are to nick. Nick davis and he said i love this. I love that he said by the way. I don't know the front of a motorcycle from the back of the motorcycle. I see great because that's not. The point and nick has quite pedigree in this industry. His was herman minka wits about The film makers just made he was the co author with orson welles of citizens game. Probably the finest film in history. His father. peter. Davis is an award winning documentary filmmaker and academy award winner so King with good genes to the project. And i also wanted him to approach this from the point of view. This is going to be his magnum office. This is going to be the greatest thing ever produce. I think he did. Approach it from that point of view. And he said bobby if we do this together we're going to be co-producers co director during the trenches with me every step of the way your narrative arc of your story jim saying it's your set of characters and i said well if i'm in the trenches stacy's in the trenches because this would not exist about her and he got that his well and that's how we started down this path together while it is quite a path the film unfolds in and has some real surprises in it for motorcycle enthusiasts. Who think it's going to be just about motorcycles. I think they'll end up walking.

"Walk through the development of the industry from the point in time with the builders didn't even know where to put the gas tank and if you had another share if you will for the passenger to put it in back of the ryder footage is left to us right. You put in front and eventually we got to the art deco era. Which is the air during which some of the most beautiful motorcycles industry were produced the twenties thirties. Same with cars. It was just an amazing time. It was pretty world. War two was probably the height of designed beauty in my mind for many different things. architecture cars motorcycles said cetera. And eventually you work your way to the back and then you go into the race trapped in. That's exactly what it sounds like. It's about forty different authentic racers including quite a few that are world record holders one. We built commission that now has a world record at bonneville and then you turn the corner into what we call avangard avenue some of the most extreme and radical designs ever including our collection of electric powered motorcycles. And then you go into the final chamber. Which is the custom show and between avangard avenue in the festival shop. We have closed seventy custom cycles which is by far the largest customer collection in the world today. And i think in addition to the spatial layout something that stacey i worked on a great deal was answering the question. How are we going to bill amusing. That we can proudly declare. Well we may have the finest motor museum in the world. We can't just say that it has to be different. And how is this going to be different. And i think we focused on for five things one of which is the land between vintage custom cycles and as he said robert many museums for automobiles or motorcycles. Any form of transportation will talk about or display their exhibits in a historical fashion which is great but history of ourselves and means of transportation evolve in the way that she pushed the edge of the frontier is for custom creations. So we said we are going to have a blend of the two and once we began to commission or collect custom cycles. We saw that. That was a niche that had not been well explored so now. We're going to specialize in a very large Collection and then we have you know. We can't just ignore the walls of this twenty thousand square foot facility. We are going to have some of the finest moto sculptures and moto paintings ever created many which are custom. So that'll be different. That it's multi media and then the last two points. We decided that if we acquire a motorcycle or culture is on display. Nothing goes in storage which is distinct from virtually all motorcycle and all non motorcycle museums. Many of which have sixty seventy eighty percent of their assets. There exist in store which is precisely why the metropolitan museum is now raising such a ruckus with the notion of selling many of their assets. That haven't seen the light of day for decades some of them. Clearly all of your little rabbits play a role in the public persona of the institution. I felt if we're gonna acquire a motorcycle or a sculpture painting. It's going to be on display if it's not good enough quote unquote are interesting enough for unique enough to be on and we should acquire we can acquire it. Put it in a warehouse or to put it in a museum. Something else goes nowhere else inserted like if you have a closet of suits our genes that you wear in another one where you store you never wear the ones that storage if it's good enough to acquire exclude enough to be on display and then the last one is that we do not have any exhibits Motorcycles or sculptures of paintings that are on loan from anyone else we on one hundred percent. What you see when you walk through the front door. And what's probably the biggest estimate we have to whether or not we feel. We've curated collection and built this collection. Away that is meeting that standard. We've acquired over two hundred thirty motorcycles. And we've sold exactly zero so that tells me that either were obsessive compulsive which is definitely true. My kind of people. We have a standard that we refer to the documentary if you look at a motorcycle and it doesn't send your eyebrows. Then don't acquire the day. The word curate is overused in marketing. Hype it's not just a matter of taste or opinion. It's a matter of expertise and youtube of both leveraged your expertise and the motorcycle arena to build a collection that is just that a highly curated collection. But you didn't just acquire bike. So that's the point that i'd like to hear stacey expand on perhaps you have commissioned many of these pieces in the custom shop so it's not just a matter of seeing things you like and buying. It's a matter of actually inspiring some builders to go beyond their vision beyond their skill set and achieve something entirely where the whole is truly greater than the sum of the parts. Stacey what about curing the collection when it comes to the custom collection that is so much more than display out in finding bikes that we like as you said that every custom bike a story behind it and the relationships developed through the commissioning of many of those bikes are what makes him so special and the friendships that have grown from them. You've got eighteen ninety nine peugeot. Gosh that's the stone age of motorcycles and that the nineteen twenties and thirties. Or some of your favorites. Pick out some of your other favorites. Some of the most exemplary bikes both in the historical and racetrack arena. What is there that really stands out for the both of you. It's impossible to select favorites. Because it's sort of like a q somebody which is your favorite daughter. And i may have a favor but i would net. Not only that. We don't have favorites in the sense of bikes. That we think are better in some way than the other by. I think we do have bikes. That evoke more of an emotional reaction from us and from our guest predictively. When you tell the story behind the by cannot give you one example which i think may be one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever designed and that is the majestic which was designed and built by fellow by the name of george roy who was a textile executive back in france. And george roy sorta like me in the sense. He was not a moto person. He came into this field from being an executive of a business Textile executive and he decided that he was going to design and build a very radical a style bike which was the the majestic and he was only gonna may a hundred offense so once again just like. I didn't say we're going to have the biggest modem museum in the world i so we're gonna find us home for pound you know. We're going to be the sugar. Ray leonard or floyd mayweather but the majestic of which they're probably eight or ten left in the world is one of the most beautiful bikes i think ever designed and i was looking for one for a couple of years and then i got a call from a friend of mine fell from france.
"haas" Discussed on Cars That Matter
"From commedia if you only have one life to live you might as well live a bunch of lives. we all have one life to live. But that doesn't mean you do the same thing professional for your entire life. And i thought well let's try to do a few different things. Let's try to be a poor man's imitation of a renaissance palace. The voice of bobby us our guest today on cars that matter. This is josh that matter. Welcome to cars that matter. I a little surprise on today's program. We're not gonna talk about cars rather we're gonna talk about motorcycles. Some of them may have sidecars. So i figure we're about three quarters of the way they're okay besides real car. People are motorcycle too. So i'm gonna put my stake in the ground and that's the way this conversation's go so with that let's meet a fascinating character with a fascinating life guy. Who's reinvented himself. Multiple times with his most recent endeavor found frenzy really never knew he had bobby us. And we're joined by his partner in life and business stacey mayfield. Who's been instrumental in shaping the direction of the collection and the film. We're gonna talk about. Welcome bobby and stacey shot. It's great to have you here. I've been looking forward to this conversation. I feel like. I know you both because i've watched an incredible film a couple of times. We're gonna talk about later on. Film is called leaving tracks which documents the inspired collaboration between some of the world's top motorcycle designers and builders along with building the museum's collection in the throes of the pandemic an incredible story. But first a little bit of history about four years ago. I dropped in on a friend in dallas texas. The first time. Ed been back into that city for many years and to say that things have changed since my previous visit was a bit of an understatement. It was during a tour of the revitalized designed district that i discovered the haas motorcycle. Gallery at dragon was brand new at the time and it housed a fine collection of motorcycles. For motorcycle. Nut like myself. It was like discovering chest of chrome polished and pin stripe treasurer on a desert island. It was just a remarkable encounter. I couldn't believe what i was seeing. Of course that was then today. The gallery dragon houses about sixty bikes but the mainstay of the collection is showcased in a brand new museum. The haas modem museum and sculpture gallery. I understand it's a brilliant twenty thousand square foot space with about two hundred thirty bikes and related sculpture. I'd love to learn more about that. Bobby in stacey can you tell us more about the hosoda museum. It's evolution outs organized the galleries and some of the points of interest is so fitting that is part of this podcast and part of this discussion which she rarely does and the reason it is because this place would not exist without stacey and even though my name is on the outside of the building it is not an exaggeration to say this is a enterprises is a facility. Film was a creative endeavor which again would not exist without my partner and my news and the film opens with a line that is so appropriate in that respect. It's a quote by yoko ono. Who said a dream. You dream alone is only dream. I dream you drink together as a reality. And the museum is the incarnation of a dream. That stacy i hatch back in two thousand seventeen and a evolved from the dragon gallery the house motorcycle gallery at dragon. Which is the street dragon which we built from the ground up and started to expand my collection which at the time was about twenty four twenty five cycles and as stacy says the passion to acquire motorcycles totally incurable and rather than carrying me. She caught it from me. We in essence outgrew the dragon gallery when you saw there were about fifty or fifty five cycles that stays comfortably holds about sixty or sixty five but desired to continue to acquire motorcycles. Build the collection commission custom builders was raging. There's no antidote for that fever and we wandered about two blocks away from dragon from the street from the gallery and found a very large twenty thousand square foot facility was basically a warehouse for furniture and the landlord. We had over at dragon saying owners this property and said listen. We would love for you to build a phenomenal expansion of your facility your gallery or collection et cetera. And we ended up taking all twenty thousand square feet. And i remember when we met with the original creative team and it was exactly the same thing that we have for the dragon gallery was the over. The hill gang rides again. The same architect is saying designer. The sank builder. Stacy myself and i said we're gonna build the finest museum in the world which is very rash arrogance statement to make. But my feeling was if you don't set the bar at the very top you don't get the best performance of yourself out of other people and i said anybody who doesn't believe in that business. Welcome to the room and nobody left the room. We broke ground. We tore down everything where we now exists. Except the status of the walls started from scratch and we built all twenty thousand square feet in less than ten months and open our doors in april of two thousand and eighteen so we just passed our third year anniversary. We began to populate the facility with our collection as we were building we were also buying so we opened our doors. We are up to about one hundred hundred and fifty motorcycles but then we kept going well. Those motorcycles are like rabbits. aren't they start with two. And pretty soon you got four. And then he got ten and they just keep multiplying They're cute. You can't not love them until end up with so many all of a sudden need a twenty thousand square foot space the house all now. They're not as furriest rabbits but they and they look a lot different from each other but you're right. They're very adorable and we say good night to them every night and at them on the head and go home and then come back at four o'clock in the morning the next day. Tell us about how. It's organized i know. Stacy had a part of that too. It's not just one big old room. Filled with bikes will only started to populate you same and build me saying we thought that the experience of walking through them. The seem should be different than the experience of walking through any other modern museum in the world. We felt in order to do that. You can't just have two hundred motorcycles. On display you must give the person walks in the door a roadmap but not if literal roadmap but a roadmap in terms that development of the industry. So we have four different chambers. The first one is called history all. And it's just what it sounds like. It's the spirit motorcyclists. The motorcycles are arranged in chronological order. So we start with an eighteen ninety nine peugeot. Emily go all the way to the two thousand fifteen sixteen seventeen iraq and you literally walk through if you walk in serpentine fashion. Which is how people will walk through rose motorcycles. You will actually.

Getting Ghosted and Rejected
"Talk about rejection because it's been my observation from a lot of different personal conversations. I've been privileged to have From my friends who trust me with their deepest darkest secrets to complete strangers. Who for some reason. Open up their deepest darkest secrets to me. Like in an uber driver or in a i know meeting just getting to know somebody. I've been really lucky And sometimes really overwhelmed and not knowing what to do with it but Been very at the end of day. I think really honored and and Fortunate for people to be so frank with me be very vulnerable with me and i know how much these encounters these everything from like your deepest truest love to like a one night stand to like just attempting to talk to somebody else and getting rejected like how much of a scar. That can leave or how much that can like. Change your entire outlook on life for yourself and it can be really tough to talk about publicly or even to just even like your friend or a person to say out loud. It's really personal. And so i thought that in light of it being asian pacific american heritage month and it also being mental health awareness month which i cared deeply passionately about that share some a in my opinion a pretty funny story at this point to reflect on all those elements combined so here we go garrity for one of my most embarassing moment. I still don't understand why. Keep this story. Keep kept creeping on me and i literally have had conversations like do i really need to share this on a podcast and it keeps coming up. So i'm aligning with my higher calling and gaden myself and here. We go so As i mentioned my first crush was bryant housing kindergarten. He was beautiful brown eyed sandy brown hair. He dressed up dracula in kindergarten for halloween. I was strawberry shortcake. It was adorable and he sat diagonal to me kindergarten glass and i remember he liked candy corn and i thought it was kinda gross and tasted like wax but i ate it because brian haas liked it so i wanted to have a connecting point of interest with him so i to eight candy corn.
Air France, Austrian Flights Canceled as Russia Denies Belarus Bypass
"Air france and austrian airlines have both had to cancel services after their flight plans were rejected by moscow will for more on this. I'm joined by mark audie. Who's the principal director at my intelligence and a senior associate fellow at the royal united services institute in london and i'm also joined by multiple twenty four security correspondent ben. Ben i'll start with you Maybe can you deconstruct this for us. A little just we're supposed to be getting back into the air Airlines are very excited that they can of course be getting passengers and crisscrossing oliver europe We have this Small blockade or certainly some aircraft to have been turned around to entering russian aerospace It's quite unfortunate timing isn't it but it's all part of a wider context so we all remember that sundays saw this shocking version of a ryanair flight to minsk in belarus and the arrest of one passenger in opposition journalists and the us immediate sanctions were banning belarus in alliance from landing in the eu and ordering airlines to avoid belarussian aspects since then bellarusse is a whole on the radar. Almost can make out the the borders of the country on a map. Because there's no flights above it. It also meant that. Some flights between the eu and russia had to change routes and apparently now russian authorities are unwilling to accept that and declined those flights by f. haas genera. It isn't entirely clear. Why it's only those airlines and whether there are technically shoes to blame related to these route changes or if there are mostly political motivations for example signaling that russia standard belarus and that it's flexing its muscles and emphasizing the importance of its aviation market an airspace

The Case Of The Dead Fortune Teller
"On april of nineteen. Seventy five the. Us army pulled out of the vietnam war as the capital city of saigon fell to the socialist people's army of vietnam in the days prior and the days and weeks following the fall of saigon the. Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states. One of which was camp pendleton in orange county california all in all orange county slowly assimilated thousands of vietnamese thirty years later in two thousand five that influx of vietnam refugees successfully transformed a stretch of strawberry fields and salvage yards in westminster calif into something more familiar. The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon. This a place where people from the vietnamese community can gather and talk and there's a sense of community there. This is sonia but yesterday my name is sonia. Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history. Community members will consult fortune tellers for all sorts of reasons like making sure their businesses are properly situated for the flow of good energy to ward off evil spirits and haunted souls with rituals and spells to diagnose supernatural causes of illness establishing lucky dates for personal undertakings and to predict the future of wealth. Health and love. Then two thousand five. One of the most popular fortune tellers in little saigon was haas smith who went by the name. Jade i say was because in april of that year. She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters
Dissecting Webflow With Digital Marketing Specialist Lachlan Kirkwood
"So this episode armed joined by kirkwood luck is a digital marketing specialists based knee may in brisbane and much like may as background working across tech startups and digital agencies. He's responsible for utilizing the latest digital marketing strategies to enhance conversion outcomes. Luck also runs. Click truro platform to help digital marketers. Connect with jobs they love. I love the idea of that because there is much quake out there but it's not always loved doing so i love that idea lachlan. Welcome to the episode. Thank you very exotic jumping boom crite. Sorry laughlin has the company web flow. And we're gonna pull apart web flow from the outside from a market his point of view we look at what we love what we hate what we're curious about. We don't understand what we think to better and we're going to see if we can work basically web flow from the outside what marketing is doing it. Also a little bit about the that whole space about web design and non code and everything behind that and that movement so lachlan for those people playing along at high. Can you tell us a little bit about web. Fly before we dig into it. Yeah absolutely so. We're pretty ubiquitous right now in the tech industry. It's pretty much interrupting the whole no code. Move it on over the past couple of years and it really has been in the past twelve months that no codes taken. The wolves stolman essentially. What occurred is just tools that allow you to build products without having to actually see kurt itself. So it's almost like visual programming and this certainly being tools out there for years. Things like wordpress that it'd been able to do that full people but the tools a getting won't powerful these days or you can create user accounts and just like dynamic content across websites and being around for a very very long time. Actually it's been through many iterations. I think it was in two thousand and nine found. Start working on it. But the reason. I guess it's gotten so big is because the whole creator right now is booming especially throughout covert wherever almost starting to explore what it could be to build their own businesses and people without technical experience. More in pal emba build anything in the space of a couple of weeks and the other big reason is that the tackles better so you can scale things much better on no code these days much easier to design things with custody. Assess without even having to know how to write. Css and two boys strengths. That's what they specialize in the most. And the reason i chose web flows. Because i'm actually contracting for a company called bubble and they one of the other leaders in the no code base is actually one of our competitors is that i for years have worshipped his marketing strategy. I think what they're doing is absolutely fantastic. So i always take inspiration from one day doing and try to add a little fight onto it if bobble great so this space that i love when something like no code is invented because like you said it already existed my people already using. He said wordpress. Maybe they had weeks or squarespace. And you know he wasn't given a name and then marketers and advertising and branding type people were always brilliant at taking something and then it already existed to a certain degree and then creating a little definition around creating a movement was wet flow. Did you say they jumped onto the nike. Instead of position cells around that or would you think will instrumental of really pushing the whole non code movement hit by the found. That bubble actually didn't prefer or didn't like the cut because they thought it was like another blockchain kind of hardwood before using so they prefer visual program because that is descriptive. As to what it is way floor didn't coined the term. I think the community just started giving it that night because they wanted names for like who they would not software developers but there will so people who can build software so what you call them so they just started calling himself. No code is and where floor really saw about as an offer changes to kinda mold that identity within the industry and they started using that pretty commonly throughout debris raining. They'll using i know they have no code. Which is like yield conference the no code space which the first people to coin so yeah definitely been writing that way and trying to push that as much as they can now and even a problem. Now we're really starting to embrace the whole code movement and use that within content that we share. So let's let's get a little bit into that besides just heads completely around it so people who in one sense no code is in the fact that they they built a website on wakes card but actually the designer of code starts to feel to me like somebody who has an appreciation of code all the need for bespoke but doesn't actually code the base back end. Because when i look at web flood look at their interface. It's a bit more complex. It's not it's not week there is card. You can just go in there and you can adjust by the pixel you can change something from sixteen pixels. Seventeen pixels you can. Actually edit the actual definitions is not just drag and drop is that. Is that how carter defines themselves. It's it's more than just not cutting with no card. That's almost like a simple version. This is much more. It's a bit like being vegan. Not just about not eating animal products. It's about the movement of veganism. No code is basically the vegan so the coding world further point. Do they then shout about. I don't like vikings yes. Yes and yes absolutely on the avid note of myself. And the reason. I contract bob because i was using bubble for year and eventually ended up just out the founders and often producing more full them so i guess i fit quite nicely into the digital market out. My background in tech sought ups. I can read some strings of code. But i definitely can't write anything. Hdl's probably the furtherest. My knowledge goes to. But i certainly have an appreciation for it. I know how important it is and yet there is definitely staple learning cove to tools like web particularly bubble because bubble. You're actually writing logic. You just don't see the java script that you're writing it just visually for you. But it certainly does take quite a bit on the senate and the one of the reasons that i love web blow it so much and i'm happy to dive into the sun is just the amount of content created around education for even just like on boarding people to that product is phenomenal. I think that's one of the reasons why eighty so while you let's trump strains that so what i always do. My first love of marketing was seo. That's the first discipline i got gotten. So my depot position is eight sticker dominion and have a look and look at it and kind of guys. Sixty three thousand referring domains. Thirty five million back lanes but whatever that's worth but five hundred and ten thousand six hundred eighty seven organic monthly traffic. So i'm looking at. Nih risk worth one point six million dollars worth of sea traffic right so good start but to your point you know that half a million organic keywords. That comes from amazing content and that content that goes beyond sort of someone searching for no code web design till this is about understanding the pain points of a persona and giving first and then sort of building from matt can you. You've obviously looked more at the may what what do you feel like. They content strategy is for this particular persona so it wasn't a casa Previously in haas about the found is all web flow and when they initially started a business the actual personas that they created and it was two of them that they just laser focused on. That was all. They focused on building for and the main one was a an existing software. Developer knows how to write code. He knows how sorry they know. How to build custom websites or prox- but they just want a streamline that time so they might be a freelance that might have an agency and they can only just. I'd sell that time for money. And you know the time it takes to build a custom. Product is just much longer than it is to build it on web play with have existing templates or you can just drag and drop elements so that was one of the main problems that we're going to solve the thing you'll notice on that blog is suddenly post a low content around like the industry but then may educational content. Is things like a series where they actually educate those uses. All those personas on how to better themselves. So they've got like a blog series for building Agency oil building a website with good. Seo or even if you're building a costume e stole just how to build that still but how did you first customers how to build your attention with customers how to create a u x so that way you know your conversion rate increases so they really want that cost us to succeed and i think that's why we're succeed so

She is the principal secretary for benefits in the department of veterans affairs. She's held that position since may of two thousand eighteen. Now that title in itself obviously a mouthful right. But i will let you. Margarita explained what your role is and all of that and kind of dive into a little bit more for listeners. Basically she second in command at veterans benefits administration so veterans benefits administration. Va that's your va. Va home loan disability compensation of oak rehab life insurance transition assistance and speaking of transition assistance marguerita has a lot of different advancements in military to civilian transition and also suicide prevention to include. What we're talking about today and that is the. Va solid start program so margarita. It is so good to have you. I just want you to want you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself but is so great to have you here. Welcome to we served now. What inky so much. It's really my pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me to be on this podcast And i guess what. I areas like to tell people as i've been in the va for twenty five years It's my passion to serve veterans in in various different roles throughout my career. i'm also mom of inactivity serving marine And also the mom of a college student Dad was a navy veteran brother served in the army so Military family close very close to my heart this mission so really happy to be here and talk about the solid start program haas of also weived definitely excited to have you and again on this show. We do our best to answer the questions that veterans and their family members are already asking and one of those questions is what is the. Va solid start programming. And that's question. Maybe we can just lead off with that. What is the. Va solid start program. Absolutely i'm happy to just dive right into that. so solid. The solid start program is really part of the military to civilian transition journey. That really looks at the fact. That transition does not end when you get the d. to fourteen at the end of your military service in fact those of you who have served you know this right. That's really when everything starts to actually happen and no amount of preparation With the military can really prepare you for what what your situation is gonna be like after we heard this from veterans so this program really seeks to connect with veterans in that first year after separation starting at about three months and then we follow up beginning six months in a year and it really is an opportunity for us to start out with. How is it going for you. How's your transition going. How're you doing what's going on in your life. What are you worrying about. And really letting the veteran drive the conversation about what he or she needs the moment how it's going and then our agents are very well trained to pick up on those cues from that conversation and provide that veteran with specific resources in guidance on how to continue their transition in the most successful manner. Possible that is that is huge. I remember. I remember when i got out at the end of two thousand fourteen. It was a kind of a drinking from the fire hose. Except i didn't even know what i was supposed to be drinking. You know it's like hey here's a bunch of benefits you might be eligible for good luck and so it's funny so we started this podcast in the summer of two thousand eighteen and it wasn't until i started this podcast and started doing some research that i learned about more benefits. I could've taken advantage of when i first got out. You know four years prior and so the fact that this this solid start program is tackling that specific issue. I think is great. So what what. Problems specifically is the program trying to solve will it is really a suicide prevention initiative and it came from the fact that we heard from veterans. That sort of felt like all the services and support sorta stopped When they separated from the military and because it was like drinking from a fire hose. They really didn't know where to go to do And who to connect to and it was really difficult for. Va to connect with veterans who were not engaging with our with our systems already so we entered into this agreement with department of defense and homeland. Security is coastguard is under homeland security to get data feet of all the military members when they were separating so that we can start those phone calls so that we can call everybody and by the way we do call everybody that we have information for that includes regardless of character discharge We will call these veterans and we will make sure that they get connected to services and resources that are that are specific to their needs so again suicide prevention. We recognize that. There is a a real. There's a reality about transition stress Which is very different than what you might think about with clinical rate with post traumatic stress disorder. Which is a clinical diagnoses Comes with its own required treatment in the mental health arena. But this is just It's stress around. All the life changes that happened with transition. And what you said you know sometimes they. You're hearing so much about so many benefits while you're in the process of separating that when you get out you might not realize that you didn't take advantage of all of them right right. That is so true. That is so true. So so the the tap program transition assistance program or the army's version i think is a cap or something. It is this part of that is essential that the tap program still exist. How does it factor into all that. They're they're connected. They're two separate things but connectors so the transition. Assistance program does still exist Dod really owns and operates. Don on any of the military services of course puts their own branding on their part of the program via has an entire day where we come in and we teach about. Va benefits was really great. We were able to get it to a full day. Always didn't always look like that but even in that full day where we teach it's really It's a classroom experience right so you're Before covid you were in a room with twenty twenty five other service members and as much as we try to make it engaging and make sure that the servicemember can tie all the benefits to their own personal situation using interactive workbook. All of those things. It still was a classroom experience. A not individual not one on one We do still have benefit visor. Available for one on one support with and they. They advertise that during the class. Now when we went into the code environment we go to virtual So we we are still pretty much in the virtual environment. We've we've started working on getting a little bit more in person presence with tap classes but of course as you can imagine Safety is the number one concern And so we think about this way. Transition assistance program is about teaching. You what you might need to know and getting you prepared in the right mindset for transition. Solid start is like okay. Now we're gonna talk to you after this happened after you got out of the military to see. How are you doing ended. All that stuff makes sense. What questions do you still have. And it's one on one so rather than having to listen to what everybody has to listen to if you already have a job and that's not your concern or you're already in college and using your education benefits that's not your concern but maybe you need to get into a medical appointment. You don't know how to navigate. That will work with you on justice. If that's what you need is maybe you have issues with your children. You need some some other resources. We have access to information about state department of veterans affairs benefits that can sometimes filling gaps were. Va can't Provide a service to really is personalized the comments we hear from veterans. I know you've been seeking feedback from veterans. As well is that they're surprised that va's calling and they're so thankful for it because they were maybe not sure who to call her how to ask about a particular benefit so it's been really interesting seeing the positive reaction from our veteran community. Absolutely and you know. I think that you know this is my opinion. You based on my own experience and the experience of know friends and other veterans who gone through the transition systems program. There are getting ready to get that to you to fourteen right. So all of those briefings. I shouldn't say all but a lot of those briefings are at least in the transitioning servicemembers. Mind it's it's a check the block it's like all right. Let me just get through this thing. So i can go home. Take off this uniform for the final time and get on with my life so the fact that you're contacting them throughout that first year i think they're going to be a whole lot more receptive to hearing. What the benefits are. Because it's not like you're not keeping them from you know from going home you know. You're not you're not saying. Hey you have to be here. This is your place of duty right now. So you mentioned covid nineteen and a lot of things have gone. virtual has there been any other impacts to the program. I know the program still pretty new but have there been any other impacts of the program as a result of the pandemic like are you behind or ahead or anything like that. A solid start actually was in a great position to react effectively to the covid nineteen situation. All of our agents were telework ready and all of our equipment works from telework standpoint. So they haven't skipped a beat they are not behind. They are on target When we first created the program we weren't sure what kind of response we were gonna get so when we created the program We we have to have a performance measure right so we said well. How many people do we really going to answer. The phone won't va calls. You know think about yourself right if your cell phone rings and you don't recognize the number what's the chance you're gonna answer it. Probably not your let it. Go to voicemail right. And if that person's important deli new message so we kinda thought we might get that sort of a reaction so we kinda started. Set the bar low. We said fifteen percent our goal was fifteen one. Five fifteen percent of veterans we reached out to we would be able to actually engage with. They would answer the phone and engage with our with our representatives. It's been just phenomenal. The actual result actually have your with me the december twenty twenty report since we began the program. We have reached over. Eighty seven thousand veterans and the fiscal year. Twenty twenty today fifty seven point. Five percent have responded and engaged. Yeah i know it's it's been just an incredible Response and we also prioritize veterans. Who we know from the information from dod if a veteran had mental health appointment In that last year of service before they left the military prioritize them and we also know that for that population. We need to make sure we get them connected into. Va healthcare and with that sub population. The percents even higher seventy three point. Six percent have responded to our agents and our end have engaged with them on the phone. Wow that is really really great. How surprised were you at the at the numbers when he finally saw them. In the beginning. I was very surprised. And then you know we had a town hall with are Representatives the ones who are actually making the call and it was really interesting. Many of them are veterans themselves. Some of them are you were military spouses. And some of them even used to work in the tap program and and they're so passionate about their work and they're always submitting new ideas about how to improve the program here in the anecdotes That they shared with me about what some of these veterans were telling them and how grateful they were for this phone call. One thing we do is we did put it on the caller. Id so in most with most cellular services You you'll it'll save veterans affairs on your phone so you kind of notes the. Va calling so kind of helps to increase the the response rate but yeah. It's it's been an amazing response for veteran for so happy that this program is reaching them in making impact. Yeah definitely that's great. That's great so. Va solid start. It's for those who are basically brand new to the civilian world right so for those of us like myself and a lot of our listeners who are not newly separated what resources are available for us for helping us understand available that that we can take advantage of so a couple things you're right. Solid start is for those that are recently separated so for veterans of any era. Were here for you as well. And you know i always. I'm always very sensitive to that that you know if you Or vietnam era veteran. We care about you. We want you to call us if you if you never got connected to your benefits. Please call us and we will walk you through. There's a main toll free number which is one eight hundred eight two seven one thousand and that is our main call centre. Those agents are trained across the entire portfolio benefits as well and they will help you identify. What eligibilities you might have In the benefit side and they can even connect you to healthcare If you if you haven't signed up for your healthcare so they can. They can kind of connect you regardless of when you got out of the military And if you are a veteran that just got out in the last year and you haven't gotten your solid start call. I say the information we get from dod his last information we had about the servicemember. Sometimes people change their phone number They changed their email address. We do try and reach out by email First before we make that first phone call so call us. And if you're in that last in the first year after separation just asked to be transferred to the solid start program very cool very cool and you just taught me something with this eight hundred numbers at eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand right cracked. Okay so i could you know after we finish this conversation i could off here. I could call that number and find out the benefits that i'm eligible for. Maybe i'm not taking advantage of. Yes and really. What what they're gonna do is they're going to ask you some questions. What type of benefit are you thinking about. you know. and because we haven't education call center so if you said hey. I'm really wondering if i'm if i'm eligible for the gi bill. They'll transferred to gi bill experts. Right if you say well. i'm really kind of thinking. What kind of employment types of benefits or what about disability benefits So you know they'll help you with those benefits. It's a little bit different than solid. Start in that There are more got react to what you're needing in the moment whereas are solid start agents are trained to sort of prompt And get information out of the veteran to help navigate the whole suite of benefits they might be entitled to and i also wanna say your state department of veterans affairs. They have offices in in different states. We have regional offices. One day hopefully will be able to meet in person again. But in addition there's the veterans service organizations in. They're out there to help. There's a lot of resources but yes feel free to call us. Anybody listening to podcasts. Give us a call one. Eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand and we'll try and get you connected to your benefits above love it and so speaking of benefits and this is it's kind of a curiosity question. I guess what is the most overlooked benefit that veterans typically. Don't take advantage. There's a couple and we actually make it a point to focus on these in the beginning They're time sensitive so one thing for example is life insurance benefits. There is a time limit on when you can convert your service group. Life insurance to veteran group life insurance. And if you don't do in that timeline you kind of miss the opportunity It's about a year and a half out from from when you leave the military so We tell them always about life insurance and that's always kind of a tricky thing right. Nobody ever wants to think about end of life. Especially you know you. A young twenty five year old veteran and twenty six year old. And they're thinking while life insurance okay. You know if they're single and they don't have a a spouse children they might not be thinking about it so we want to make sure they understand the value of having that life insurance policy and so that they make an informed decision potentially to take advantage of it another one is dental care the eligibility for dental care which is time limited in a lot of veterans miss out on that because they don't fully understand it so there's a couple of the ones that we know are are critical sensitive And honestly we've heard some some of our veterans who say they didn't file for disability benefits. Because they didn't feel like they should take that benefit away from another veteran so we do spend some time explaining that they don't take benefit from another veteran. It's a it's a mandatory benefit. Were any veteran. Who's eligible for the benefit and it also opens up the door for healthcare. And you know if you're young and strong now but but you know that you had injuries orthopedic injuries for example. But you're okay and you can kind of deal with the pain right now. Well one day you're going to need healthcare it might worsen You know this is. This is not a handout. It is an investment in that veteran. Making sure that they can stay strong and half the care that they need to to For the rest of their life if needed sure sure so that is some really really great information. But it's not every day that i get to to the principal. Deputy undersecretary for benefits at the veterans benefits administration or being translated. Second command right. So i have a couple of questions that they're they're along the lines of transition but not solid start specific right sure all right so one thing that i'm incredibly passionate about is helping veterans rediscovery since of purpose and meaning after the military and so finding that sense of purpose in that sense of meaning after military service is. It's really the single most challenging part of a chat challenging part of the transition and so one question. I wanted to ask you is how does the. Va help with this aspect of post military life. It's interesting that you bring that up because our research also validates that is one of the biggest challenges. In fact we did. We just started last year. A post-separation study of veterans. Who went through the top programme while they were in uniform to kind of see the retrospective look right. Because it's one thing we can really high marks in the classroom right there. The ninety six percent are highly satisfied with our tap class. But what we wanna do is wait to your veteran in the naski. Look back on and say okay now. How well prepared did you feel you were and we also bounce that against data to see are they employed you know are they using our benefits and we ask them for information about how they're doing so in that study we found the open comments that we got from veterans were very much around that loss of sense of camaraderie. That loss of sort of feeling that you're part of a community unit cohesion that you had the military you don't have that in communities today And just that that loss of sense of purpose and mission so we're just now starting to lean in to explore how the can help with that. We can't solve the problem ourselves right because we're not going to be that sense of community for them but we can connect them and we've been engaging with a lot of organizations nonprofits and via so organizations that provide that connectivity that sense of community in that sense of mission And we're starting those conversations to say. How do we infuse that into the solid. Start program so that we can start connecting veterans in a different way to give them that sense of community. they're looking for. It's really going to involve have to involve a partnership model via. Can't do this alone. Sure sure on love the fact that that the va is realizing this and is like you said leaning into that so now this is a this next question for you is potentially a touchy question. But i don't need to tell you that. A lot of veterans are like. I don't like the va about experience for those veterans who have had that experience or they're just like man. I've heard so many bad things. I don't even wanna try it you know. It's probably not worth the hassle. What what would you say to them if they were if they were asking like. Okay what should i do. Should i do anything. What would you say to them right now. A couple of things first of all. I wanna say avenues. Cells and good news typically unfortunately does not get the same kind of traction. There are so many good news stories out there. And if you look for them you'll see them. I would say comback triumphs again. It's not the same. va that. It was a few years ago. We have come such a long way in the healthcare system with the hospitals in the end the outpatient clinics in our regional offices are outreach is is so much different and we understand better how to improve the experience for our veterans. So i would say it's been a couple of years maybe had a bad experience comeback to us get another chance and if your experience is not absolutely stellar fabulous edit. It doesn't make you turn around your opinion of va. Reach out to us. And i would say in the healthcare system. We have Advocates in every medical center. Go talk to the patient advocate. Tell them about your experience. Let us change something. If there's something specific that's not quite right. Sitting in our via regional office asked to speak to the leadership team. We have lead dan so hard on getting feedback from veterans and making changes across the entire enterprise. It's it's just not the same. Please try again in comeback. That's what i would say. Sure sure so of just just anecdotally right so my family. And i we live in alabama and so my closest a regional center is in birmingham. And so you know i. I've been there a lot over the past few years. And when i compare the service and the facilities and everything like that to a to a more local hospital more local medical facility. It is night and day difference. I mean bring. Va clinic is just top of the line. So it it is really an and again. I know everyone is different but it even from. When i used to go to the va we lived in texas to go into the va. Here it is. There's so many positive changes that have been made in at so honestly i'm really really happy with with the facilities and the care receive and everything like that so glad to hear that. Yeah absolutely absolutely so what's a big takeaway here right. So what does something. All veterans and newly separated veterans or. Otherwise what should they really remember from our conversation. Today i would say remember that. Va is here for you We probably have a benefit or a service that you might not have been aware of And we wanna be there. We want to be partners in your military civilian transition. We want to be partners in your life and help you with any issues that you might have. We're not the answer for everything But we also have connections with community resources and just reach out to us if if you need anything don't try and go it alone and again if if you had a bad experience in the past comeback to us i promise you it should be a much better experience now and like i said if there's anything you encounter that that you have an issue with let us know we're here to be part of it. I mean my personal story. My brother who is an army veteran wouldn't go to the. Va for the longest time. I finally got him to go and he's been so thrilled he was. He calls me up and he's like says they're offering me services that i didn't even ask for. They're they're doing this. They're doing that. And i said yes. That's what we call wraparound services when you come into a va. We are not just looking at the problem that you presented with. We're gonna ask you how else we can help you. And he's been so impressed with that. He wishes he would start in the. Va system a long time ago. It really is We've really made some great advances. So please come see as awesome awesome so here on the show. We like to give our listeners. Some practical next step. So when this podcast finishes playing what should they. Do you know the context of our conversation today. What should they do because today's question is. Hey what's the. Va solid start program. And obviously you've answered that more than we could ever imagine and in so having you on the show has been just absolutely outstanding but what should their next steps be right after listening to this podcast. I would say if you're curious about the benefits and services we offer You might try to going to our website. Www dot va dot gov easy to remember And when you go to. Va dot gov. You'll see sort of things grouped into logical sort of life domain issue. So you'll be able to kind of navigating see. Wow you know what is what does the. Va half for me. And then you can actually apply for many of our programs online. Some of them Were still working on getting online. But you get the application online so that would be one thing and then if you just don't wanna talk to somebody some full more comfortable calling on the phone and talking to somebody call that number i gave earlier one eight hundred eight two seven. One thousand You know we're here for you. Take that step. Check us out If you're already enrolled in one of our programs you know good on you but there might be something else that he don't know about so check us out. Sure well margarita.

Bitcoin tops $34,000 as record rally continues
"Quick look at Bitcoin right now a 3 33,093 in UK trading On Sunday, Bitcoin actually broke above 34 grand for the first time. I want to take a closer look now with Bloomberg's Joanna Haas singer. MMA Cross at team editor Joining us from Singapore. Joanna, I know this Bitcoin has been on quite the rally. I mean, we're up more than 40% over the last two weeks. So what are people saying about this quick rise? It's very impressive. You're right. And people are actually starting to talk about 50,000, which seemed unimaginable just a few months ago. But it was only in the December when it actually broke above 20,000 for the first time, and now we have this Of course, it's been somewhat been trading for the holidays. There are a lot of people who might have done their annual re evaluation and decided they wanted to get into crypto. And so that's been helping as well. But it is a pretty stunning game. Has there been a mine mind shift in terms of the adoption? I mean, are we seeing institutions now participate in a way that the retail trade had been doing before? Definitely, and they're coming in many times via something like the grayscale Bitcoin trust that allows them to have AH registered investment vehicle. But there are people like policy there. Jones Guggenheim is getting into the act and saying they're going tol they might buy Bitcoin with one of their funds. And you just have more and more institutions. At least things are going to consider it if not actually getting in themselves. Is anyone being a little cautious here? Or at least two sounding that alarm? I don't want to say alarm but at least raising the possibility that we may be on thin ice here. Yes, there were definitely people who have mentioned the volatility. For instance, B t i G, which does have a target for Bitcoin of 50,000. But we can still see a lot of downside. Volatility is well and it is just been such a runoff. You do wonder if it's the blow off top if you'll see a big move down. Like we did in December 2017 where it was just such a sudden move up. But then quite sudden move down is all. So we know that good coin is the largest crypto. I'm wondering whether the move that we're seeing in Bitcoin is inspiring interest in other crypto currencies that may not be as expensive. It is for sure. And ether, for instance, just its own record. As of yesterday, it hadn't beaten. It's February 2018 highs yet until yesterday, and now it's above the thousands. And you have even others like Bitcoin Cash, for instance, that are also coming up as people get interested in Kryptos. Whether asset class Joanna Good stuff. Thank you So much for being with us.

I think a lot of pt's of our members in the dd sick. See but don't see a lot of and sometimes when you have those conditions that you see some of the time but not often enough to gain recognition of patterns and you know ideas. I think it's it's great to sort of beef up on some of those sometimes so we're excited to to talk about it tonight but i'd like to start with classifying people with a less specifically in your twenty eighteen article which is titled physical therapy for individuals with aol s current insights and.

I never expected my journey to be where it's at today and faith is a central part of my life and and that's really what made this message about trauma and ashes in resiliency Something I realized I needed to be involved in because healing message much like face should be You know I've been surprised though to see sometimes people's trauma has been experienced in faith. In a church or something like that. That's been eye opening to me in and so among the training that I do for every kind of imaginable sector I do training also for the faith community around that point but yes I'm excited in in in love doing this work I feel it's such a rewarding opportunity to help people realize that some of what happened wasn't their fault.

"haas" Discussed on Live Happy Now
"Right now we've had to accept a lot of uncertainty and today's guest has spent the last several years practicing method of acceptance that we all can learn from. . Rare is a Japanese principle of acceptance and today's psychologists. . Scott. . Hawes talks about his book why be happy which looks at how this practice works, , what it can do for us and how you can implement it in your own life. . Scott welcome to live. . Happy now. . Hi Paul. . Thank you so much for having me on I. . Really appreciate it. . Well. . We had to have you on because you have a book with a name that is with the title that almost seems contrary to what we talk about it live happy now because it asks why be happy. . So I wanted to find out first of all, , what's the short answer to that? ? Well, , I mean it's a an approach to happiness that's very different than we think of his happiness say in the states. . or in general west, , the Western world. . So we think of our own happiness here is personal and we pursue it and it's in our constitution or the print right to pursue happiness whereas in Japan, , it's not really thought of that way. . It's thought of as what can I do accept the situation as it is. . In order to either live with it or to make changes, it's , not about your own happiness, , its about the happiness of your family, , the happiness of community, , and it's not as if the Japanese of cornered the market on that I mean certainly in the states, , we have a lot of happiness, , our communities and our religious institutions and so on. . But their baseline is not about personal habits. . So why be happy when others are unhappy? What ? can you do to make someone? ? Else's Day a little bit better. . And this. . It's an interesting concept and it's one that is called I'm GonNa. . Let you pronounce it out. . Thanks a lot. . Japanese under the Best I can so I would say UK regular although my Japanese friends if there were to be listening to say Oh Scott that's wrong. . That's not how you say it. . So it's it's either you Katie who were UK ru depending on whether it's a noun or verb and in a rough sense it means acceptance depending on who you're saying it to and where you're saying. . And where did you first start discovering this in? ? How did you begin studying it? ? So I started going to Japan for the first time in my life in two thousand and two I had come across Japanese novels when I was a teenager and Japanese movies when I was teenager and I really liked them a lot but I kind of dropped it for a long time. . And pretty famous chef in New, , York invited me to join him. . He was going there for emotional trip for lost in translation and he dragged me kicking and screaming to Japan. I . had no interest in going at all but he took me there and I started to see how people behave there. That's . very different than here, , and the idea was when you were with people there to create silences decreed acceptance of others and was really just spectacularly interesting. . So the more I learned about it I just not I personal experience the more I read about it, , and over the last eighteen years I've been really blessed to have a lot of good friends over the years in. . Japan. . So they've taught me a lot. . In how is it that you begin to practice acceptance versus this pursuit of happiness with what we tend to to be about. . Here's the deal I genuinely do not think that one culture has the edge over the others. I . don't idealize Japan by any stretch of the imagination I don't idealize in any culture for that matter. I . don't think I don't think most people do, , but you can take what they have their an add to what we're doing here. . So if I would have written this book for a Japanese audience I would have written the reverse of it I would. . have. . Said you need to be more thoughtful about your own individual happiness? You ? need to think about what what you like to do each day as opposed to what do others like in terms of our culture here in the states research in any in a general way, , it's a very creative vibrant culture that we live in the United States are always changing no matter what what side of the political spectrum you're on things are always changing and so. . A practical way with the Japanese do as they slow it down. . So they do things like. . You know the famous tea ceremony, , but it's not just not they take. . If you go to a coffee salon in any one of the big cities, , they'll take a long time for you to make for them to make the coffee for you or even a cocktail is it's a one ounce pour in takes a while for them to make or as I say the t they also take baths every day they take they tried to take naps a lot and when you're with Japanese people, , even old friends that I have there. . As much silence in the in engagement as there is talk. . So they create spaces for people to observe and purpose of the observation beyond the practical stuff is to create a consensus. . So for example, , they're not really big on opinions, , but they want to have a situation where. . Generally. . Speaking people there will come to some agreement some consensus that we all are seeing the same thing or all are feeling the same thing in the closest that I can think of it here in the states is Thanksgiving where no matter as I say, , no matter no matter what part of the political spectrum you're around matter who you are no matter where you're from generally speaking most American homes were all eating the same thing. . We're all having similar conversations and that's really kind of how the Japanese operated on a regular daily basis. . There's a way in which is kind of conformity that creates an acceptance of others you agree with them or
