Does it pay to install solar

"It's always been so difficult for me to address is when people wanna know from me if it's a great idea for them to do solar at their home and when you hear my answers to the people pose to me they're really not clear answers and that's from somebody who has been a very early adopter of salt. Were having done the first solar installation. I did a couple of houses ago and at the house we live at now. We have a solar farm instead of on the roof. We put we have a hillside and we did a massive array on the hillside generate enormous energy from it and people will ask me absolutes. Well am i really gonna make back the money. How long's it gonna take and all the rest and the reality is my answers when you ask me. Those questions are so frustrating to you. Because it's really hard to answer that i mean it's really easy with what's called utility scale. So which is really. The fastest growing part is so where where Power providers build these massive fields of solar panels and their mega forms and every year. The ones being built or larger than the year before and nowhere is so. We're being installed more in the united states now. Utility scale than state of texas where so where can generate power far far cheaper even with drawback of intermittent power where when the sun's shining the panels are just sitting there the power is so cheap generated from the seller that the combination of solar and wind in texas year after year after year people's power bills. Keep going down. It's a free market in taxes and the market gravitates to wherever the cheapest source of power is and it's solar and wind especially solar these days so then somebody asked me about their house. And i'm like. I don't know i mean i love having it. But the payback term is really hard to calculate and it was a wonderfully written long form story on wired from someone who went through the struggle in fact. It's funny. I installed solar power system in my house in an attempted energy resilience. The constraints and the headaches were greater than i anticipated. And it goes through all the issues they were involved I and figuring out the payback. The economics of doing so and the reality is the cost of solar panels themselves have collapsed in recent years down nearly ninety percent from where they were ten years ago but installing solar at a home the cost the panels only part of it is. There's engineering studies involved in figuring out where to place them building the The supports that. Go on your specific roof. Although some of the technologies have become more modular more flexible a lot of its labor with the installation. And all that so it's not a slam dunk but the math gets better and better over time. But it's more a mixture of art and science trying to figure out what your payback cycle will be of course. Unless you really overpay for it you're gonna get a payback. Is just how quick. The second part of the whole puzzle is what's going to make solar compelling within the next three to four years and that is the cost of batteries backing up the system or dropping. The cost batteries dropping so quickly and the efficiency those batteries rising so fast that by twenty twenty three twenty. Four right in there. Doing sewer with battery and combination at a resident is going to be a no brainer and eventually the batteries are going to be cheap enough. That people will be able to degrade and essentially like in the original star. Wars movie from was that forty years ago. They'll be able to d grid and live with their own power plant at their own house.

Washington state to boost workers' comp rates for Amazon

"Are more dangerous than ordinary warehouses, according to the state Department of Labor and Industries. That's why Ellen I now says Amazon will have to pay more into the States Worker's comp fund. When it comes to the rate at which workers suffer injuries. There are regular warehouses. And then there are Amazon fulfillment centers in October, news site Reveal and PBS news. Our completed an Amazon injury investigation, according to Amazon's own records. Last year, it had more than 14,000 serious injuries. The rate of these injuries was nearly twice the industry average. Now the state of Washington is demanding Amazon pay 15% more. Into the state Workers Compensation fund from which injured workers are paid while they recover, according to the Seattle Times. L and I injury data shows worker's comp claims from Amazon fulfillment centers jumped 300% between 2014 and 2018. Meantime, the number of claims from non Amazon warehouses has been steadily dropping.

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

"Suddenly we are now looking at cars that can go three hundred miles on a single charge right and while they're still too expensive for many people they're expected to get a lot cheaper in the next few years but now people are worried about how long it takes to charge. Yeah and that's a. That's a fair question i guess how. How long does it take to charge and electric vehicle. More than fifteen minutes less than two days. Yeah that's not helpful right so i could throw a whole bunch of numbers that you to explain why there are so many variables that affect this but the most important thing actually isn't the numbers. It's the fact that most electric car owners most of the time charged their car like this. My name is duane ross. I live in corrales new mexico. And i have a two thousand thirteen tesla model s when i bought this car headache. Standard tesla charger installed in my garage. And you just plug that in and of course the charge and then he goes in his house and lives his life. Yeah in the case of someone like duane. Ross and others. It doesn't really matter how long it takes to charge. Because you just leave the thing there overnight right right and it would be parked anyway. Yeah also more convenient than having to go to the gas station from time to time. Plus it's cheap like a lot cheaper than paying for gas is the way i understand it I could see how this works for daily driving. But let's say. I want to take a big road trip right across the whole country. What then that's where. Fast chargers come in. Joyce bryner has a tesla model three. She recently stopped to charge up at a brand new super charger in gettysburg pennsylvania. It sounded like this can hear the power ramping up there. So this is a gonna charge me fast and Let's see what car says here. Looks like of got twenty five minutes to get to eighty percent charge. This is kind of staggering so charging the car at home would take hours and hours charging on the go using one of these fast chargers takes. What like twenty thirty minutes half an hour. Maybe not much more than that. That's amazing yet. That is really quick. There aren't very many fast chargers. That actually are that fast. You might take longer especially at an older charter. Though pricier i take it then then obviously charging it at home because it's well i guess it's just it's it's almost free at home right right and this case. Brynner's charged cost a little over eleven dollars not too bad compared to gas but more expensive than home. Okay so even at a state of the art charger. It's obviously still a lot less convenient than a gas station just because it takes awhile right but remember for most drivers. that's also not a very frequent experience. Mike davar needs with the market research firm s. Clint and he says if you ask people who are considering electric vehicles they really focus on the idea of waiting to charge. Is i think psychologically waited more than it deserves. And the inverse of that is the fact that they don't tend to appreciate how much they'll benefit from nocco gas stations so even though fast charging this rare occurrence for most drivers a lot of companies are really focused on making it as fast as possible and putting up as many fast chargers as possible. Yeah i could see how that would get people over that mental hump so that they just by the thing and then after that they're they're mostly just charging it at home. Yup that's the psychology. Are you ready for the economics. Are you seriously asking me. If i'm ready for the echinacea. All right here. We go the fastest. Fast chargers are super expensive to install like more than one hundred thousand dollars per charger. That means you can only really make money off of them. If people are using them a lot if the utilization rate is really high but remember most people mostly charge at home. Oh there's another hump to get over sure. I spoke to end smart. She's the vp of public policy at charge point which is charging company. And with the fast charger you often have low utilization. Not because it's not an unnecessary piece of infrastructure but because it's in a location which is vital to two drivers occasionally but not necessarily used frequently every single day so in other words. People really want a fast charger to just be there. And in fact they won't buy an electric vehicle unless they're already confident that there are fast chargers everywhere and they're super fast and in fact way faster than they are right now. They want the whole package but they don't actually want to use those fancy chargers all the time it's easier and cheaper to charge at home. It's actually better for your battery too. So it's kind of like if everyone wanted a gas station nearby but they could just get the same gas at home for a fraction of the cost right and in that situation. And you're the gas station. How do you make money. Well i mean you can always just get money from the government. The taxpayer That is happening as i understand. Yep charging are also cutting deals with utilities and of course they're they're joining forces with automakers right because they want to chargers to exist so that people buy their electric cars. The automakers do. Kathy's oy is the ceo of vigo which is fast charging network and they have a deal with gm essentially agreement with general motors is building a bridge between where there's enough cars on the road to make money which is a little time in the future to two right now. So that helps us will build the of demand because general motors has come to the party and is helping make a contribution to the building that infrastructure so he also says look people right now mostly charge at home but that could change in a few years once more. People who don't have garages start buying electric cars. So maybe utilization goes up and this is really interesting camilla because like we normally think about how demand drives supplies like people want man for something. They're willing to spend money on it. So you know. Accompany supplies it Here's always saying that. Like no once the supplies out there. Then it's going to drive up demand so build chargers and people will buy the vehicles to use the chargers she also says maybe you can get a bunch of shipping transportation companies to use these fast chargers and that'll help cover their costs. So companies are optimistic. Then they see a path to profitability. Here yeah but. I think it would be fair to say that. It's a lot easier to get there. If people were a bit more rational. If people used fast chargers as much as they worry about fast chargers they're either be a lot more charging or a lot less worrying. Yeah and in either case. Just less of a conundrum

Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative

"Financial times ran a piece saying that apple is working on an alternative to Google search an interesting story. It's an interesting idea. According to the paper apple is stepping up efforts to develop its own search technology as us anti-trust authorities threatened multibillion dollar payments multibillion dollar payments. Google makes secure prime placement of its engine on the iphone already. There's so much about this story that's fascinating to me. It looks like first of all apple. Search engine is already running. Although it's not really a search engine exactly. The financial times says when people type in request for info from the home screen in iowa. Fourteen apple has started showing its own search results looking directly to websites rather than going through a third party in iowa. Fourteen today view. The report says the operating system shows apple generated list of search suggestions rather than the google results these results include auto compete style. Excuse me auto. Complete style. suggestions generated by apple showing that it is learning from its one billion users common queries. Okay see i kinda just want to read the whole story to you and then go back. Point-by-point it's the financial times. Why don't we start there. It's the financial times so of course. They're concentrating on the money. Part of it as if apple just started doing this yesterday. They keep saying that the doj is suing. Google for anticompetitive behavior at the center of that suit or near. The center of that suit is the fact that google pay somewhere between nine billion then twelve billion dollars a year to be the default search engine in safari. Everybody says for iphone. But it's for safari right. The doj in the past few weeks at right were suing. And i know we've known that that was coming for a while. But it's not like falcons can suddenly turn on a search engine from nothing. of course they haven't turned it on nothing Two and a half years ago. The got john john andrea. I'm sure i'm pronouncing that wrong He was the head of google search supposedly. They said it was to Increase their artificial intelligence capabilities and siri virtual assistant but he also brought eight years of experience. Running the world's most popular search engine the financial times. Points out. I mean sorry. It doesn't mean that apple is in creating an alternative to google i. I'm going to go ahead and keep reading. And then we'll i should have read the whole thing right. Experts financial times talked to Some of whom used to work for google. Say it wouldn't cost that much for apple to do this. And that apple has hired the talent to do it. That apple could do it because you can't just go in license somebody else's search technology if you're going to be an alternative google. I did not know until. I was reading the financial times story here and this could explain. Why dot go. I love duck duck. Go doug goes. Was privacy focused search engine and you can go there instead of google and you can type in your queries. And they're not being tracked and that's great They rely on being. It turns out their licensing beings technology. Now still your information as dang between you and duck duck go. It's not going anywhere. It's anonymous all that stuff. It explains why duct that goes results. Aren't necessarily as good as you might want. Duck tuck duck goes results to be apple. Can't just skin being. They can't just skin duck. Oh right they have to come up with something better if they're going to compete with google but not everybody thinks they're going to compete with google. Dan wong associate professor of business at columbia business. School said it would be extremely difficult for apple to ever catch up. Go-goes advantage comes from scale. He said and the endless user feedback helps to tune results and identify areas of improvement. Google gets hundreds of millions of queries every minute from users all over the world. That's an enormous advantage when it comes to data surprising. No one apple declined to comment for the financial times all right. There's so much about this. That's interesting and also i think kinda wrong in what. The financial times is arguing first of all. They're saying that apple is doing this because they're worried about losing the twelve billion dollars nine to twelve billion dollars that up. A apple gets every year from google for being the default search engine. I use siri as often as i can. I know people who don't use siri at all. Google still spending nine billion dollars even if he does get better. Google spending nine billion dollars for apple would not be a waste of money because there are lots of people who are always going to google it. They're not going to ask siri for whatever reason. I know that. When i'm out of the store i don't ask siri because i don't like to talk in public. I don't like to you know. Spread my business around. If i'm worried about a search engine tracking me. I'm certainly going to worry about you. Know saying out loud the grocery store or well. That's the only place. I go now saying out loud to the grocery store what i'm searching for. Nobody else needs to know that. At that point i will start typing stuff in at that point. Is it google that i'm going to. I have set my default search engine to duck duck go and that is another thing that this whole of this seems to sort of ignore. I mean the fact that we do have choices at this point. And i would imagine that somebody at least at apple will go ahead and argue. That what google is playing for is placement because people are lazy or people like google or don't realize they change it even though apple has made it clear that yes you can. Google earth could still pay nine billion dollars a year and not lose their money even if apple gets better at what. It's doing now as far as apple trying to build a search engine. That's going to replace google. I don't think so. I don't think apple is trying to replace a bill. The search engine that everybody is going to go to. Because i don't think apple wants that kind of headache. I think all of this stuff about siri better and about apple's being better. I think all of that is true. I think what apple would like is instead of going to any search engine you pick up your you ask a question you get your answer not kicking over to the. Here's what i found on the web. Not thinking oh. I need to go to google or i need to go to ulta vista wherever it is. I need to go to look up stuff. I need to ask jeeves by. Golly i think that's the part of this whole thing. That actually excites me. The most the idea that my virtual assistant could become more of an assistant unless a virtual thing that it could become a a source that i turned to to ask questions and get answers

How Are Your Kids & Teens Dealing With COVID?

"How are your kids and teens faring during Cove it and what can we do to help Children and parents who are struggling? We want to talk with someone who knows And joining us now is Alex, smallest in A marriage and family therapist. Practice owner in university place. Good morning, Alex. Hi. How are you? Good. Thank you so much for joining us. So we know that this pandemic has taken such a huge toll in terms of the deaths and illnesses. We also know so many businesses and people in general are having a hard time staying afloat financially. We don't talk enough about what this pandemic is doing to our mental health in particular on Children. What are you seeing in your practice? So in my practice, I'm seeing a lot of increases in anxiety and kids well, and everyone to be honest, but in particular talking about kids and teens on increasing anxiety An increase in depression. There's been a lot more social isolation, obviously, so we're seeing the impact of that on kids and their mental health on dawn families as a whole as well. And so when you are seeing that, what kind of things can you tell your and I know you can't get too specific. But let's just talk in general. If we see what what are some of the signs first of all. That kids are struggling before they even get to, you know, not everyone can afford to have a therapist or go to a therapist or know that they're in trouble. What? What science should we be looking for in our kids? So I think that one of the things you think about is especially for younger kid of much younger kiddos is psychosomatic symptoms. Sometimes you'll see that in the form of headaches or stomachaches, also withdrawing from from typical activities. Obviously, we're not able to engage in all of our typical activities. But when you see your kid not enjoying your things that they used to enjoy that something that I've noticed a lot with kids as well. For example, a kiddo who No longer really wants to leave the house or feels anxious about pretty basic things, even just visiting the store. Those those are some of the things that I've noticed that I've seen some of the parents of my kids, but I work with notices well. One of the things that we talk about is how this pandemic is impacting people in different ways, sometimes is those who don't have the financial means and sometimes is those that do have the financial means. Talk to us about the kids that are having a hard time Is this and all over problem whether you're poor rich or anything, talk about that. Yeah, sure. So, um, so in lower FPs, the socioeconomic status families, Um, you're seeing a lot of basic needs not being met, and that's really concerning as well. Um, I mean a lot of kids on free lunch program. They're reduced breakfast programs. And so, um, School is not just being out of school is not just for academics. That's also a safe, warm place for kids to be right. To get their needs met, But even for other populations, like from the populations that I work with Kids you have educated or well resourced families. We're seeing life trajectories change in ways that are unimaginable right from strange marriages or financial struggles to even miss scholarship on differ. Teens, especially there's an increased rate of suicide, aladi and suicidal ideation as well. It's affecting kids across the board. Well, OK right now. I'm a parent at home. I have, um Ah young Child School age. Let's just say junior high who Is not able to be with their friends because of Cove it Theo. Only interaction they're having with their friends and or their teacher is through the computer on Zoom. What are some ideas that you can give us to maybe help our Children that are going through this right now, and that specific thing that are struggling, not seeing their friends. Personally. Sure. So. So this is this is more of a global trauma, right? And we know we know from the field unprecedented. We're not even familiar with the level of trauma that this has been from a global. We've had devastating wars We've had Natural disasters, But this feels like it reaches all different parts of the world, right. There's a study that came out that was from 46 different countries and all kids. They're reporting increases of Depression, anxiety and decreased well being. So then the question is is well, How do we keep those kids connected? Because we know while this pandemic is unprecedented, the research on trauma is not. We're familiar with charm, and we're familiar with what helped heal and that connection and relationships So in regards to parents. I think it's important for them to remember that that connection with their friends is paramount, especially for preteens and teenagers. S o to be able to encourage that as much as possible. I think that we're resilient of humans. I think that people forget that their kids are resilient. And so what? How do we? How do we build resilience? Well, we have to get creative right and Some of the innovative ways of connecting the technology has been really cool to see. So as a parent myself and to those who are parenting, even teens and preteens, I would say to you do your best to increase connection and relationships as much as possible. Um, you know, I've seen some really cool creative ways from doing like online together do tours because there's tons and tons of these across the country that have Webcams right now, or, you know, joining in with a family member doing free? You know, there's a freak, you know online. I've even had some of my family's was some of the preteen boys. Really enjoy doing an online game of like roadblocks or something right with their cool uncle of their fun, aunt or something, so any sort of connection like that? We know it's something that mediates trauma and the impact of trauma.

As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory

"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.

Nutrition for gravel cycling with Kristen Arnold

"This week on podcast. We've got sports nutritionists and professional cyclists. Kristen arnold kirsten has a masters degree in science and human nutrition from ohio. State university is a usa level to cycling coach with source endurance. End racist professionally with the butcher box racing team. I've always got a million questions about nutrition and it certainly a topic. That's coming up in the new ridership for them. Kirsten helps us break down. What to think about eating the week before an event during an event and after an event i thought it'd be useful to think about it in that context just because a lot of us these big events. One hundred miler. That's a big unusual ride for us. We're not doing that every month in are cycling career. We're just kind of peaking for something. That is really extreme in terms of what our body is used to. So it's important to kind of think about that not only in your physical preparation but also nutrition and hydration. Christine does a great job of breaking down the things you should be thinking about before the event during the event to give yourself the best chance for success. She's got some fantastic takeaways for us. All and a few little tricks that i hadn't thought about so. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Let's jump right in kristen. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me craig. I'm excited to get into the topic of nutrition with you. But i always like to set the stage for the listener to get a little bit more of an understanding about your background. Since you've got a background both professionally. Nutritionist but also as a professional cyclist once you give us a little bit of both okay So i kind of make my living in three different ways right now and I went to school for nutrition. So i have an undergraduate degree and dietetic and then got my registered dietitian or credential Ended up getting my masters of science and human nutrition then became a certified specialist sports dietetic. So i was in school for eight years Nutrition and So open my private practice. Sports died headaches. Company in twenty fourteen and then started coaching Cycling in sixteen hour with source endurance. And i've been reading on the professional road circuit and twenty sixteen and now rethink for butcher. Box pro cycling. Wow that keeps you busy. Yeah we've had a couple episodes recently where we've touched on things that i would fall in the realm of nutrition and i was excited when we connected just to bring you on board and talk from the athlete's perspective about how my listeners might improve their overall nutrition nutrition and such because such a massive field and something that everybody needs to spend time thinking about and integrating into their lives. I thought we would just think about it from the perspective of an athlete. Who may be only doing a handful of events a year so not a professional cyclist by any means but someone who's peaking for an event that may be way out of the ordinary for them so think about like a two hundred mile gravel race an sp t gravel or amid south gravel event. So let's try to break down the conversation by starting. You know if you have one of those big peaks senior year. How should you be approaching it. Nutritionally in the week leading up. And then how should you be approaching your nutrition during the event. Okay all right so we're gonna talk about the week before and the day of a big event There is some research to show that what people call carb loading is effective. And what this means is that you are eating High proportion of your calories up to seven to ten grams per kilogram body weight of carbohydrates per day. and what's that doing. it is super saturating or glycogen stores so for endurance athletes especially cyclists with these long gravel event Even though a lot of the time you'll be below threshold the majority of the type of effort. You're going to be doing it. Relies on glycogen and so the main goal with Going into the event to make sure that those lijun thursday or as full as possible if not fuller than they normally are And then that also goes for hydration so ulta making sure that we have adequate hydration stores and meeting knows with fluid and electrolyte so short version of that is to Continuously e carbohydrate rich foods throughout the day for up to a week before the event and then also making sure to hydrate well with electrolytes every day consistently throughout the day.

"I think. My favorite thing to do is to leverage lincoln because lincoln is such a great way to build relationships with people that are in like these awesome industries in different verticals. But for me. I feel i really most of the building relationship and knowing the right time to turn it into like a soft goal to action. So you know as i prospect all always know if i'm just gonna email say ten people today from that company. I will go ahead and add as many people from that company across all product. Line that i could potentially talk to you right. Maybe they're not the number one or today's already. But i'm gonna add them so i can eventually get to them on linked in because it's easy way to get wins and for me. I'll always look at the profile. A leveraged the research. I've done for the emails and once they've accepted my connection request. I'll always look for a way to pass lies. That that was a gal once from kentucky. I forget which company shows up but she she was from kentucky and i told her this story about how me and my mom would traveling across the country and we went to cracker barrel and we thought it was the only restaurant that we hold. It was the only krakauer in america and then we got to the next day and realized it was a chain and so i told her that funny story and she found it hilarious and we went back and forth for a week and was like. Hey i see you do this like you know. We work with xyz You know see you open to learning a bit more about this. And lincoln i think is just such a great way to build rapport and build a relationship before you. Just you know oscar Can i just spend a bit of time like learning more about your role. And secondly only than i love sending videos so if someone accepts request and fills right like algiers plot wife phone and i will send them a really personalized video for example. Like hey scott i sawyer. Recent post i love that you said this and this adding a personalization and then just throwing out similar kind of mo. full malik we walk with xyz. I see you do this. I imagine like this and this headache you know. Would you be interested in learning a bit more about how you walk in your space. And i'll send the video and i found it super effective right because it's a way to stand out and that's that's really. What makes you successful like. You need a stand out from the sea of people that are trying to get to them so i would definitely recommend like lean on those videos. Yeah so couple of questions there. So as as you're sending out those initial connection request you're kind of going. Broadly across the account. Are you personalizing the connection requests or you coming back with personalization. Once they accept. I always play around of it and i think it depends if they seem like a a real change agent and they vary social than. I'll throw out like a little message when i do. Send the request. But for the most part i have found like a pretty successful connection rate which i'm really fortunate about because i know that not everyone has found that and then i'll go in with a very personalized note because to me if someone's accepting Accepting that initial requests like. They're open to conversation whether it be about. Sprinkler is another story but there are at least open for me to say like. Hey thank you for accepting an a lies note. So i'll lead on it for like the change agents and like the number one i want but the most part like what helps me kind of spread. Wide thin is sending as many of those and then leaning on the one side except

Moderna's Covid-19 Vaccine Is 94.5% Effective in Early Results, Firm Says

"Moderna has gone public with his experimental vaccine, the biotechnology firm says early results suggest that its vaccine is nearly 95% effective. Today's news follows a similar announcement from Fizer last week, and it leaves the incoming administration with the prospect that it will have a least to Corona virus vaccines to distribute and 2021 Dr. Celine Gounder is part of the President elect's Coronavirus Task Force. She's a clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious diseases at New York University. She's also host of the podcast epidemic, and she joins us now, Dr Gounder. Welcome to one, eh? Great to be here. So what does it mean that two potential vaccines are both showing signs of success. Well, this is quite promising. Both appear at least based on the data we've seen so far to be over 90% effective in preventing disease. We don't yet know if these vaccines will prevent transmission from one person to another. But at least we know that they're they're very likely to protect us individually from severe disease. This is really a breakthrough. But we still have a lot of work ahead in terms of getting people vaccinated. It's not just about having a vaccine, but it needs to get into people to protect them. What's the timeline from here in terms of when we could possibly either see a vaccine approved but definitely on the distribution and as well? Well, I think you're going to see in the next couple of weeks. The submission to the FDA by both Visor and Madonna for emergency use authorization. They will continue to collect data on effectiveness and side effects as they start to ramp up vaccination in advance of an approval. But I think we're still looking at Really focusing on health care workers and other high risk populations in the first wave of vaccinations in at the end of this calendar year earlier early next calendar year. And we won't really see these vaccines available to the broader general public until at least April or may of next year, And that's because it takes time to manufacture. The millions the hundreds of millions of doses that we're going to need and to gear up in terms of the distribute that distributions supply chain and with the Fizer vaccine, there's a specific type of infrastructure needed. The story that it has to be. It started very cold temperatures. So how would that impact the possible world out of that vaccine? Well, that's right. So the Fizer vaccine requires ultra cold, ultra freezing minus 70 degrees Celsius. This is not something that you have in your regular family doctor's office s so it really is going to need to be stored. In central locations, perhaps hospitals, other pharmacy distribution centers, and so that does make it much more difficult. This is not something that you could, you know, disseminate to every single family Practitioners office and makes it more difficult, especially in rural areas to really scale of vaccinations. This is something people are thinking long and hard about right now. To figure this out. We got this question from Dr Swat on Twitter who says what have the potential side effects of the vaccines. And how much will they cost? Do you know that yet? Well, we don't have all of that information. Yet In terms of the Madonna vaccine, with the results of which were just announced, the side effects that we're seeing are pretty mild pain at the injection site, headaches, muscle pain on and it's a similar sort of profile with the fire advisor vaccine and really the kind of thing you see. With many vaccines in terms of cost. The Biden Harris transition team is very much committed to making sure that people who want to get vaccinated can get vaccinated for free. That's not just with respect to the vaccine itself, but with all of the other costs associated with getting vaccinated the doctor's visit The supplies. Unfortunately, one of the things we saw earlier this year with respect to testing was that the current administration had said Yes, people can get tested for free. But then people got surprised bills. Because there was still the cost of the doctor's office visit and so on. Are how closely are you working with the Trump Administration on a Corona virus response at this point Not at all. Um you know, a major challenge here is that the G s a needs to certify that we could move forward toe hand over the keys, so to speak, so we can enter the building so we can start to have these kinds of conversations in detail and so right now, pending the General Services Administration, signing off on Theologian results. We really are in a holding pattern on or not able to have those crucial discussions. So we got this question from Alicia on Facebook. Who says Can Biden's team start work now? The end of January so far off what? We lose progress? What are you able to do right now? Well, we can be interfacing with state and local government officials, public health officials, we could be reaching out to the private sector. Um, s O. We're certainly moving forward in terms of our own planning. But, you know, if you imagine that this is a war we're waging war on the current virus. And like any other war if we were in the middle of a world war and we didn't know where our aircraft carriers and our tanks and our troops were, it would be very difficulty to plan. A response s. Oh, it's it's very challenging, not to be given sort of that critical crucial What's really frankly national security information?

Solutions for Menopause Symptoms

"Well. Let's get started on today's topic. And i. i want to clear up a misconception. That many women still believe in the past. Many women were told that as we age and reach menopausal years we become deficient in the hormone estrogen. Now the truth is most women have too much estrogen. The excess estrogen. Let's just call it. Estrogen dominance and joanne is gonna talk more about that as well. That's right. I think a better way to explain. Estrogen dominance is if we compare the amount of the hormone progesterone that we have to the amount of estrogen that we have so. It's really we really want to be in balance and when we have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. That is where we get the term. Estrogen dominance right and when we taught her popular menopause survival seminar in house. Most women were very surprised to hear they did not need more estrogen from hormone replacement therapy or hr t which has a lot of what they had heard from Their from their doctors And to be honest these women actually needed to detox. The excess toxic estrogens for their health. Now some of you might be wondering what are the symptoms of access toxic estrogen. So i want to share some information before. I answer that question because i find that women. Even when they're younger you know in their thirties or forties they can also experience those symptoms of estrogen dominance or excess estrogen and so again too much estrogen. That's the of what we've always been told her. That the misconception that we need more men right. here's just a couple of the symptoms that can occur from this. Estrogen dominance and so many women will experience. They'll notice a decrease in sex drive decrease in libido irregular menstrual periods swelling of the breasts breast tenderness. Even fibro cystic breasts. Disease and uterine fibroids sign of too much estrogen right. You had mentioned earlier Headaches or migraines the ones that come before the menstrual cycle. That's right irritability. Depression problems sleeping insomnia and of course weight gain is another one favorite topic right exactly. Oh in joanne You and i were talking before the show about how we have both had clients in the past who had come in and they would talk about. Oh i used to get headaches and migraines but they would be coming to us postmenopausal and they say oh my headaches and migraines no longer bother me right. So that's just an example of someone who was getting headaches and migraines due to likely s excess estrogen right and then with you know with menopause. The hormones all shift right and then the headaches and migraines style and that's not the only caused migraines but it definitely plays in because yachts of women have come in and say i used to get migraines but now don't anymore so we know that's true and there are also more Other more serious symptoms that have been linked to excess estrogen or estrogen dominance and there are certainly links to estrogen dominance and breast cancer. There's also links to uterine cancer. There are links between excessive estrogen and autoimmune diseases especially comes to mind the hypo hypothyroid shimoda thyroiditis. There is a link between excess. Estrogen and excessive. Blood clotting that can lead to heart disease so those symptoms can be very serious.

How Self-Driving Trucks Will Change the World with Robert Brown and Jon Panzer

"Robert say what's up to fire nation and let's explain the logistics industry to an outsider. Awesome well thanks for having me Logistics industry is incredible It's a trillion dollar industry in the us You know especially the trucking industry is saying if you bought it. A truck broaden Seventy percent of all freight is moved on trucks And then also trains and all sorts of the planes trains and automobiles in this immense amount and as everyone during covid with the increase of ecommerce and everyone expecting their stuff out hours if you order it. Rather than days An amazon really driving that through competitors senior huge announcements from walmart target an incredible amount of pressure on a already stress system You know and and getting stuff around this country is an important part of food security and you know on of course just convenience now we demand that you know our shipping rather than day shipping and Just an incredibly vital part of our economy and workforce You know just a millions and millions. America's are are employed by our transportation industry as well. It is incredible. I've actually lived down here in puerto rico for four years now so i was here during hurricane maria and it just blew me away that after hurricane maria like we still had the logistical capability to get food across this island with just like this unbelievably rural roads and mountains and all these different things but they were still able to make things happen to me. I was actually an armor officer in the army for two years and then my last two years in the army. I was a logistics officer. So i went to four uses to logistics schools. Well so i definitely have a little background in that. It's been it's been a while. Now thank you for your service though. that's cool. I appreciate that in the introduction. I shared with fire nation. Everything that you're responsible for which is a lot. Can you break down for fire. Nation your current business model so right now. We are the largest autonomous truck. Company in the entire united states with wapping forty trucks so kind of tongue-in-cheek because if anyone that knows the tracking industry that is You know it's not very much. But you know i it. Still a new industry and right now. We retrofit internationals and peterbilt trucks with our technologies with cameras and light ours and all sorts of great sensors and test the software that we're developing along with all the all the hardware as well every day Between kind of book any between phoenix arizona and dallas texas We haul cargo for folks like ups did a pile with the united states. Postal service Clean foods Arizona food bank and so we get real world testing and also what's nice about too is out there driving around trucks. you know. we're actually a purpose building. The technology with the design of what they call. Sad levels for basically for folks. that aren't familiar with this levels. Which is probably ninety. Nine point nine percent of the population that is kind of the levels think level five jetsons car can go anywhere with the robot level. Four is is really cool. It can go without a driver but it's defined route so between that. Ups facility in phoenix to the ups facility paso texas. We have the map that you can kind of think of it putting down a digital railroad and then the truck can run a thomas lee on that digital railroad where we map so it can't just on a split decision. Just take off to another location in in that kind of thing but The the technology and the business use case think repeatable routes high volume which is great for the long haul trucking industry. And that's the problem. We're trying to solve this great technology. So i'm actually one of those people who walks around saying very loudly. I cannot wait for the day. That every single moving vehicle is driverless. And whenever i come across somebody. That's like i will never get into a driver's car. I go. you are a crazy person because if you honestly believe the headlight you'll realize how horrible human beings are driving. It is so so bad. it's so so bad. I mean and smartphones with texting social media. It's only getting worse. I can't drive a car with a looking at who in passing and nine times out of ten their faces in a phone. I'm like you're literally driving a car right now. What is happening. You know we were chatting before you know the community. I live in a beach community. And you're taking your life in your own hands on the street. You your head on a swivel dodging. 'cause you have no idea someone's going to see that. Stop sign or see you. Also the as. I'm speaking to on ice bar smartphone. And do everything on my smartphone.

Finding A Cure For Hangovers

"Everyone, it's Martin from twenty minute fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected with season Lee founder of more laps Could you please do to yourself and Tello our audience? WHAT MORE ABSENCE? All about? Yeah. I Li- Martin having me. Yeah. Little background about myself. I was born in Korea and immigration with my family to Canada when I was nine. So I grew up in Canada did all my school here under Grad and that moved To Central Cisco right after that where it began my career as a product manager at Facebook, a couple of years through lots of different asserted destroyed I ended up in L. A. starting two thousand seventeen to start what's more laps today am what has more labs do is essentially we're stupid you company on Consumer Goods Company that makes what we call science beck supplements that combat modern-day stressors that slow you down such as fatigue poor sleep quality. Hangovers. I. Mean we referred to our products says, life products you know things that can help you hack your life be more productive than just more joy out of it and yeah, I mean like one of your hero products has been morning recovery. Maybe we can start with that product and you can tell us what actual day stressors this product actually focuses on. Yeah I mean I think the sort of DOT gr no more labs and our mission definitely evolved from morning recovery, which was the first product and basis of our company in its early days although we a lot of months where this was sort of a fun side project before it stepped into A. FULLTIME and a company with a mission, but ultimately, morning recovery think of it as their a remedy for when you consume alcohol especially if you to consume too much alcohol. So we we have it's a holistic approach though it's not a single ingredient but the hero ingredient is flavonoids called out Dha, which is an acronym. Extracted from a plant known as doses, which is also known as on Oreo, Japanese, raising tree, and product that carry the is actually quite popular in Eastern Asian culture especially create Japan, and what's interesting here is that it's got properties a speed up the breakdown of what as hell to hide, which is a highly inflammatory biproduct alcohol that's created when we rate out in our liver and so ultimately when we consume any type of liquor beer wide, ultimately, it's alcohol that we needed to break down into a civic asset fled under body but before call acidic acid, it turns into height that's actually a byproduct as much more than alcohol itself, and so all the really doing is. Acting as a catalyst to help your body break on sort of faster than that you, you didn't have a morning recovery and so at its core at you know that sort of how it works right. So basically helps me to process alcohol much quicker or my liver by that I mean, of course, and then the next day I on much faster recovered and I don't half that sensation of well hangover which for many people can be quite a few different things from nausea rain faulk to exhaustion dizziness headache CETERA, right? That's right. Yeah. Arrive at that compound yes. Oh, you know initially I mentioned through a lot of serendipitous dirty. We got two more labs and so I think It's difficult to sort of describe how we found developed the product without going through the founding story. But I, mean ultimately over decades especially in places Korea Japan, there's actually a giant industry, but that's explicit known as hangover drinks as funny as that sounds just like how energy drink is massive north. America with hero brands such as red bull monster at everybody is very familiar with personal concept over there but replace energy drink with hangover drinks. Now why? Why is that? So I mean I think a lot of it is a cultural thing and I think there's two components to it. This is just my best my best guess what is scheduled to set to drink quite a bit and so a data sources such renominated a year year actually shows that Korea especially is the number one liquor consuming country in the world. So I'll give you a statistic that's kind of mind blowing fourteen shots of liquor per week per capita in south, Korea and number two Russia at seven, and so I think this is one of those things where when people talk about worker. Party without ever actually having been to places like. China Hong Kong Japan Korea people definitely drink a much frequently and I think maybe that's also the reason why and especially because they have such a cutthroat work environment where even though the throughout the week, not just weekends next day you you have to dress up and go to work

The Gluten Connection to Osteoporosis and Autoimmune Diseases

"I'm Cassie Wenas. I've been a registered and licensed stay Titian for twenty two years and of those twenty two years I've been teaching nutrition classes and Co hosting this dishing up nutrition program for about the past fourteen to fifteen years. I am telling you this certainly not to make myself feel old. But to let you know that I have quite a bit of experience to share and I feel really fortunate to be able to be here this morning to help all of you listening better understand the connection between what you eat and how you feel. And today my co host Teresa and I will be discussing subject that I know a lot about and if we're being honest I know a lot about this topic more by destiny certainly not by choice we're going to be talking about the myriad of health problems that gluten grains cause for a lot of people as many of our listeners know I know a lot about this topic not only because of how gluten has negatively affected my health but what? Really drives, my passion on this topic stems from the fact that both of my kids have a condition called seal EAC and if you're not familiar with this autoimmune condition in a nutshell, it's when your body has a severe reaction to gluten and actually causes your body to begin attacking itself. It's kind of like the immune system goes haywire, and if you swallow even just a tiny speck of gluten, your immune system I begins attacking your own small intestine. So. Now you know a little bit about our topic for the day next, I'd like to ask a few questions just to get everybody connecting the dots as we delve further into what we call the dark side of gluten. So question number one, do you or a close family member have lupus. Do you or a close family member have rheumatoid arthritis or do you have a thyroid condition like? Disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Do you have Raynaud's if you're not familiar with rain odds, I can explain from personal experience. Raynaud's is when the blood vessels in your hands and your feet. Constrict when you get cold and they constrict beyond what's Normal When the weather or the air is cold or it can happen because of stress as well, and then your fingers or your toes might turn white and you get sort of a burning pain not fun. Or is your Autoimmune Disease Scleroderma or type one diabetes. Do you or a loved one have chronic acid reflux or do you have osteoporosis if you can say, yes to any of these questions you're in for a super informative show today theresa and I WanNa help you make the connection between eating gluten grains namely the the Ri- The barley and most oats and your health problems. And as I just mentioned, my co host today is Theresa. I WanNa tell you a little bit more about her Theresa Wagner like me is a registered and licensed AIA Titian she to teaches many of our nutrition classes she of course, Co host this radio program. She's a mom of young kids and she counsels clients several days a week either by zoom or phone appointments because of Covid, nineteen were offering all of our nutritional counseling either by video or phone appointments. Yes. That's right and we are staying busy with those phone appointments and zoom appointments but as it relates to our topic today, cassie. Mentioned earlier that your kids CEAC. Disease. It made me think were you shocked at the many hidden sources of gluten when you started? Living a gluten free life all those years ago I really was shocked I had been a Dietitian for many years at that point by the time our family got diagnosed. So I knew gluten was inbred. I. Knew it was in anything made with wheat flour but I had no idea of the more hidden sources of gluten in our American food supply just to give you a couple. Of examples. Gluten is in some brands of Deli meat. It's in a lot of summer sausage and beef stick brands. It's in some ice creams for heaven's sakes and even in some medicines, not only that but when you have, CEAC, you have to be careful about personal care items to you need to be sure you're buying gluten free shampoo gluten free toothpaste, gluten-free Lotion, and gluten-free makeup. Yeah. It's so crazy to me that gluten is an ingredient in so many every day nonfood products. It reminds me of a client who had ongoing migraine headaches. We have limit. You know we had gone through elimination where we Eliminated. The dietary sources of what we thought causing the Migraines and we went through lifestyle habits that we thought could possibly be causing the migraines when we finally looked at her personal care products and switched to a shampoo without added gluten. Her migraines they disappeared.

"headaches" Discussed on GSMC Health and Wellness Podcast

"One. Bright incidence the topic of headaches, and then categorizing them further into primary and secondary headaches, and then into migraines with AURAS and migraines without. So, we've learned about win to go. See a doctor for Migraines and now we're GonNa talk a little bit about the causes and risk factors. Well, we are not entirely sure so far. What causes a Migraine with an aura? Researchers have conducted some studies over the years, and they found some evidence that these migraines with visual or as like those. Floating symbols or the Zigzag lines can really be like an electrical or chemical wave that is moving across the part of your brain that processes your understanding of these visual signals, and that's in a place called your visual Cortex and they think that that may be causing those visual hallucinations. But many of the same factors that trigger marines without an aura can also trigger migraines with an aura. And that could be stressed, bright lights, some types of medication or foods too much or too little sleep and menstruation, so if you are starting to have migraines of either type. It can be really helpful for you. And for your doctor for you to kind of keep journal about what's going on with your life I like to keep a bullet journal. I'M NOT GONNA lie to You I am not great always riding in my bullet journal. But when I do, it's kind of Nice to have like twenty minutes to sit down and write things out your time May. Of course, also very use shorthand if you are in a hurry, or you're not really enjoying journaling, but you can write down what you have been eating which medications you took, and what time and how much sleep you've got the night before, and what your quality of sleep was, so if you didn't sleep all the way through the night, that might be a problem, too, because you may have gotten nine hours of sleep, but it might not have been quality sleep. Also keep track of your menstruation cycle when you are experiencing these headaches..

"Before that head pain begins, and they generally last fewer than sixty minutes, but sometimes these AURAS can occur with only a slight headache or no headache at all, and that's more typical of people who are age, fifty and older. And in addition to having that sensitivity to light and or sound, you may also have nausea along with that. Personally in my experience, I tend to have more of an issue with light then with sound, and I don't typically feel nauseous i. just have a very intense headache along with that sensitivity to light. Most people who do have migraines with Auras tend to have some temporary visual signs and symptoms, and if you have those, they'll start in the center of the field of vision, and then spread outward, so think like when you pour pancake batter in to a pan. That's how that kind of looks. So the blind spots are called Scott, showmanship and those are sometimes outlined by some simple geometric designs like circles stuff like that. You may also see zigzag lines that slowly across your vision. You may see shimmering spots or stars, flashes of light, or have those changes in vision or vision loss you may also experience some type of numbness in one of your hands on one side of your face, and it could slowly spread along a limb, or you may have some speech or other difficulties with language or some muscle weakness, so those can be pretty concerning because those seem like symptoms that are associated with strokes, so to make sure that you don't just count off a Migraine and go talk to your doctor if you are concerned about that. You should also immediately see your doctor if you have any of the symptoms of Migraines with Auras, especially temporary vision loss, or seeing any of those floating zigzags or spots in your vision, so that your doctor can rule out more serious problems like strokes or even tears in your retina. We're going to go on a quick break, and when we come back, we are going to talk about some causes in risks of Migraines and take a dive into tension. Headaches stay tuned. Are.

"Assistance, as it could be something more insidious than just a simple headache. Now. I WanNa talk to you guys about the types of primary headaches, so I up Migraines, my old nemesis. Some, Migraines I one of the most common forms of headaches, but not all headaches or migraines. migraine is typically referring to a headache that is on one side of the head, but it can sometimes be on both sides. That headache typically last anywhere from two to seventy two hours. So this can last like three days. You guys and I have indeed experienced migraines. Have lasted that long. A lot of times eight is accompanied with nausea and vomiting and sensitivity to light and or sound. And the type of pain associated with this headache is generally a throbbing type of pain. There are a few different categories of Migraines, though so we have headaches than we have primary headaches, then Migraines, and then types of migraines. So within these categories of Migraines. We have some that are preceded by a warning symptom like an aura, and those are known as the classic Migraine, or also called the migraine with an aura. If you're migraine starts with just pain, and you don't have any warning signs then that's just known as a common migraine. Grain Without Aura, so I understand that can be a little bit confusing, because one is common in one is classic, and those typically communicate the same type of concept, but that is what they are called. So if you prefer to refer to them with the or a component, you'll still be communicating the same thing, but perhaps in a clearer way. Now. What do I mean when I say Ora-? Well a Migraine with an aura means that you have some type of sensory disturbance at the time that could be seeing flashes of flights or having blind spots or other vision changes, or even tingling in your face, or in your hands, so these are symptoms of what they call the Laura. And with the ARA, it's just the headache like it normally would be, and you don't have any of these sensory disturbances whether that is in feeling or in seeing. If you have one of these or the other. You're generally going to receive the same treatment, and you can try to prevent migraines with Auras with the same medications and self care routines that you might normally use for other types of Migraines. So with your migraine aura symptoms you usually you're going to get them about an hour or less..

"From the sixties. Why did you get leaded gasoline? While you're at it. Yeah I'm glad they're doing it and I'm sure they're charging ridicules prices can put an airbag in it. No no your your life is you can listen to tunes but your life is forfeit. They'RE NOT GONNA they're not gonNA retrofitted with a crumple-zones and roll cages airbags. It's thirteen hundred euros on this random site I found on the Internet. That's roughly fifteen hundred dollars. Charge a yearly fee BMW. I mean like a good aftermarket like you know doubled in Carpool. Unit is six hundred dollars. Five hundred dollars. I kind of in that ballpark. When you let the multiplier that's not that bad of price. No it really isn't That's another thing we bring that I forgot to mention. I heard news via twitter today that Marco you and I are not going back to buy your next. Bmw because European delivery has apparently ceased which really really bummed me out. Yeah I thought it was interesting like yes. Be Use European delivery program for North American customers and and I think it was interesting. Basically one of the reasons that the foreign people dug up was basically that like most. Bmw's sold north. American customers are SUV's now and almost all SUV's are made not in Europe. Like at least the one North America are made in North America the various factories somewhere in the US and Canada. I but So like it doesn't really make sense like you know. Those were never getting European delivery. Because I couldn't because they weren't made in Europe and so the percentage of sales has North American customers keeps going more and more towards models weren't made in Europe anyway so they're basically saying like they had very few people still doing European delivery and so they're they're earning it which is unfortunate the kind of the end of an era although BMW north. America has historically represented an average of two thousand European delivers deliveries annually. Such deliveries have declined in recent years to under five hundred based on these trends and long-term evaluation. Bmw Group will end the European Delivery Program in twenty twenty and cease accepting reservations as of this week. Or maybe next week but soon it's kind it's a shame like it's one of those things that it was so. I'm so lucky did it. It was so fun this is you know if you want to hear us. We back when we recorded neutral. We kind of ended with us. Having gone to European delivery for my m-5 five and family. It was great and it was a fantastic trip and was so cool the fact that you could order a car from BMW. In America and then go to Europe they would give you this whole like factory tour. Walk through they would give your car. You could drive it around Europe for like a week and then just drop it off at any of these like five or six places in Europe and then they would ship it to America and you know a couple of months later you could pick up at your dealer. That was incredible. L. End because of some weird like tariff loophole. It was cheaper like you would save a few thousand dollars on the cost of the car kind of pay for the trip and so it. Kinda worked out that lived. The trip was like low to no cost in the grand scheme of things. Because you were saving all this money on the car it was just kind of amazing thing and it always kind of seemed like this shouldn't be possible. How is this? How is this like legal and profitable for anybody at like? How do they work out with tariffs that you're picking up? A new car meant for a different country in this country. That is not certified to run in. And you're allowed to drive it around for a little while and put on a boat somehow like this should never have worked but it did and it was amazing and so we got to do it. It is a shame that it's ending but it is kind of amazing that it ever existed. It was incredibly incredibly fun time. And I'm so glad that that Aaron and I were were able to do it with you guys. It was really preposterous in kind of stupid. A lot of ways like let's fly across the planet to pick up a car and use it for a and in our particular case we like drove arguably more than we actually stayed still but oh my gosh it was such a fun trip and yet the the next last episode of neutral kind of the end of the regular season of neutral if you will which is episode twelve We dragged John. Through all of it in and it was such an incredibly great experience and it made it made me feel like a million bucks being part of this experience and really. I was just a hanger on like I had no reason to be there but the BMW people are still super nice and it was such an it was so so cool and so fun and a once in a lifetime experience for sure even before they shut down and now with it being shut down. It's even more so so I want to call attention to it. It's just kind of bums me out because so cool but you can still do it with Porsche. I think you can still do it with Volvo. Saab I don't even think exists anymore so everyone loves getting. They're getting in their fun. New Volvo and driving around the number ring offers fun. You've you don't have to worry. Gets TESLA LETS YOU DO California? Pick up where you can pick up your Tesla and attend to where it was painted before we leave the car play topic. Can we just laugh? At how amazing this single din unit looks. This is like your car. Stereos have the two different heights they can be and the Double Din is the regular looking one. That has a reasonable size screen. Then they also offer a single one back when cars were only radios or maybe a radio cassette good fit in that size and that's it that size they have a car play screen and it looks like the tiniest it looks almost like it's small smaller than the original iphone to apple washes next to each other. And that's your car place green half inches. Apparently you get you gotTa squinting at the navigation screen. Can you see anything on it? It's too small carplay. You why is not particularly scalable? It gets fairly fixed. So they're not it's not like they're just rendering one icon on screen. I think they have to render the same number of icons just really tiny like six hundred screen. Yeah it's probably really screen magnifying glass to read the street names. Can we just pause and look at the link that put in the chat? I gave me all. That's a lady sunhat. That's not what I was talking about. Cowboy hat a cowboy hat either. It's it's it's on. Okay it's so good. It's so good case. He's the only one has got the hat he asked for and we can see why he should work actually thinking myself. That does look bad. Kept away his hat. Because you're not thinking straight topic..

"Listening and everything else and then get a beer and your hands are now free because you have a headset so you can use your newly freed hands to have a beer that makes it a little bit more bearable Johnny. Other thoughts Margot so worked up about a conference call and considering I can't even remember the last time he would have had to do one for quote unquote. I have multiple ones per day. So I'm in the thick of it right now. No it's what it is. Is that now? The only way I can hang out with my friends is via conference calls so I went from not having to ever do them to the only way. I can socialize and that sucks. It's way worse than in prison socializations. You can just tell your friends to put on headphones. Though it's hard to tell your co workers that anyway my my advice would be much more pragmatic and lower level. I know the question was. How do I improve the audio quality but practically speaking in all of my various video conferences every single day of the week? I'm just begging. People like not be in the middle of a tunnel tunnel with diesel trucks. When they're like yourself and you're not talking. Everybody knows that but apparently not everybody knows that and like all like I don't care about the audio quality I don't care how far away you sound. I just want to understand your words and sometimes there's just so much noise like a constant static like there's a giant like fan blowing on the microphone like what is that where are you. What is that noise like? It doesn't make any sense and it's not like it annoys you. 'cause you're bothered by noise it annoys you because they speak and you can't understand their words because there's too much noise. I just want to be able to understand. I don't care how good you sound. I don't care how distant you I don't care if you sound like you're in the far corner of a giant public restroom. I just need to understand your words which means everyone else mute and you somehow have enough signal to noise ratio for me to hear the words coming out of your mouth. That's all I want. Yeah because like keep in mind like there's there's going to be a little earlier there's going to be so much processing done by the software to your voice that the difference between higher and Mike are mostly going to be crushed. Most people are not going to really be able to hear those through the terrible protocol at the using so as long as noise ratio is. What's important here as long as people can understand you and your speaking clearly and it's not to echo in the room and you're not riding a motorcycle at the time you're on the conference garage stuff like that like you also want to avoid the problem of like like. I got this because whenever I do a video. Chat which again is not frequent normally but it has occasionally happen for various. Somebody wants to talk and let's talk about podcast standards or whatever it happens. Whatever I do a call I always just use. Podcast microphone because it's configured as like the input to my computer. It's very here. Why wouldn't I use it? I have headphones. It's always ready to go so I swing it over on the big boom arm. I put on my headphones. It has popped in front of Microphone. And every single time every like whoa look at you fancy and it becomes like a thing like it's like a thing that everyone has to mention like the other night. I did hang out with my friends and same thing. It's like. Oh whoa look at better than all of us. And it's like that's the kind of attention that you might not want or it might not be appropriate in certain contexts for you to be like the fancy person with the big set up selling. Maybe you don't want the cowboy hat you. That's another reason why I suggest like a headset is a really good balance because a headset gives you like for the purposes of a video chat program ninety percent of the quality or more as the best. Pakistan if you could possibly have but with a smaller low profile thing that no one's going to notice and call out and draw attention to yourself with so stick with the headset range of things. If you don't want people to be commenting on it constantly and finally I will also say that. This is you know typically these days. We're not just doing audio calls. Video calls and the best thing you can possibly do for video calls is get some light on your face for the love of God. Get some light on your face. Most people doing video calls do it in an UNMODIFIED office UNMODIFIED room. That usually has a big light above and or behind them they get back lit and you can see their face very darkly shadowed and there's bright light shining behind them. That's never good. Do whatever you can to get light hitting your face so get light behind your computer above your computer. Whatever it is. Get light on your face. It doesn't have to be fancy right now if you go out right now and try to buy like studio lights. They're all sold out everywhere of course because everyone's doing this like you don't need that. It can be a lamp. Just move it to you. Know be next to or behind your computer like somehow get more light on your face and get more in front of your face than there is behind your face. So whether that's turning on a light behind him and then turning off the light behind you you know whatever you can do do that because that will also like in addition to sounding reasonable on the video calls you will look better than everyone else in the video you will. You will be clearer to see and cleared understand. You look more professional if you have just some kind of light on your face during video calls all right.

"When it comes to them trying to suggest ways for you to not do that? They'll just how to stop typing and that'll solve it and there right The ninth grade advice. Then you get into that all like who can actually help me with this. And we think we talk about this past shows occupational therapy and trying to find a good doctor and so on and so forth but science does have ways to test for things and it is good to know and you know things like the keyboard or whatever if the thing you're injuring is alleviated by using split keyboard. You will see really from it if instead the thing you were injuring is like somewhere else in your body like in your lower back or your shoulders or your neck. It's it's possible that a split keyboard won't provide any help beyond just a slight change of pace. Then you'll be back in the same position as you continue to tense up in your neck muscles are overvalued and that could be of course strengthening or something else. You need to do right so you. It's good to actually know to the best of your ability. Where are the actual problems? And what are they and also to get them sort of classified as like. Is this type of problem that I can solve with exercise or is it a you know how how my injuring myself. And even on the rotating thing like the you know do different things rotate so and so forth all star about some people have a bad knee right and then you know get a brace in that knee or they start favoring their other leg and then they get a second bad knee because now you're putting all your weight on your supposedly good knee and now you've injured that one you can chase things around all you want right but in the end you know. It's only a certain amount of men's that wire can take. You really just have to learn to manage that and we're not all giving the same wire this wire analogy. I'm really just reading this thing home. We're not I'll give him the same gauge of wire in the same length. In the same strength one person can bend that wire back and forth twenty four hours a day seven days a week for their whole life and be fine. You might not be able to do that this genetic lottery in you know who knows like you can't one size does not fit all so like so many things having to do with health especially sort of like minor nonfatal chronic conditions. It's very difficult to like to to find a way to deal with that. Without essentially taking on a lot of the burden yourself to read books do research audition lots of other lots of professionals in the field. Don't accept the advice of the first person you talked to be cautious of medical advice. That you know is sort of intervention area of all surgery surgeons WanNa do surgery and doctors prescribed drugs and people don't understand are all. That is the case but God I talk about this topic. 'cause you really just want to tell people how deal with it and the answer is it's hard good luck. Yup Right Johnson. What are the tips for improving audio quality? Video conferencing for people working from home is there an external mic. You recommend for this purpose. That would be better than say air pods. Is there a way to separate audio input and output on Ios? I Gosh I don't know what to do about. Ios unless you want to do one of those completely convoluted setups. That like Federico would do For the MAC. I mean you could get a decent mike or just talk really close to the one that you have Marco this is probably best s to you. What's the right answer here? So I'll start with the tricky stuff. Ios basically does not expose to the user a concept of like choose your input and output device. Apps can do it APPs have access like audio APPs in the API's you can enumerate enlist the devices available and give people a choice of where the audio sent most. Apps don't do that though by default the auto. Api's basically just go to whatever the like the most recently plugged in like the there's certain priority order of like you know what device should should take control basically based on available but most most IOS already devices audio apps rather will just use whatever the system default currently is for input and output. So they don't offer that kind of control so that being said generally when it comes to improving audio quality and intelligibility of how you sound people being able to understand what you're saying how professional clean your audio is as you're talking. Most of us don't have a ton of control over the room. We are in and most of us are not in a recording studio. I'm not even an recording studio right now and you know I I try to make it sound like I'm kind of close to one but I'm not. I'm in an office. That's a shared use room. That's full of all sorts of other stuff. That has some sound treatment on the wall but more people would have but not nearly as much as a studio There's a whole bunch of other crap in the room. It's it's way too big to be a studio like so even I'm now like in a room. That's not ideal for it. So we need to do is figure out what are ways that you can make decent sounding audio or make noticeable improvements when you can't control the factors and usually you can't control the room and the critical thing that case you were right. We said a minute ago. What most people don't realize is that you can buy the best microphone in the world but if it's like three feet away from you in echo room it's going to sound like Frapp no matter what Mike it is. It can be a shock on Mike. It can be a hyper. Cardio Mike. Whatever it is it's going to sound like crap if you're in an untreated room and you're too far away from it and so the best thing you can do generally obviously exceptions but generally speaking what you want to do is having a microphone that as close to your mouth as possible given the conditions and you also ideally want to be able to send the audio that you are listening to the other people talking back to you. Ideally senator headphones not out to speakers and the reason why is that you have zoom and skype and all these different things facetime. They are smart enough that they will try to not record. What what they're out putting so you don't get echo back into like the other person talking. That's coming out of your computer. Which will be picked up by your mic. The software tries to correct for that and cancel it back out again so that it doesn't get into an echo loop by doing that though. This offer has to do more work to filter incoming audio it introduces artifacts. If you happen to talk over each other which happens all the time. 'cause latency And it just generally can were so. Ideally you want to give this offer the best fighting chance something decent so number one if you can send the audio to your headphones that you're hearing so that way software doesn't have to work as hard to cancel it out. You will still get some headphone bleed. But that's another story anyway. The video calls. It deals that okay so if you wondering headphones and the best thing for a microphone is to get it close to your mouth than ideally use. A headset and all of us have headsets. Generally speaking because air pods and EAR BUDS. The apple solves that have microphone. Blobs in the cords. Those are headsets. They aren't necessarily the best headsets for this purpose. But you probably already have one so already. You can generally get a significant improvement by just using ear buds or air pods now. If you want to go beyond that again look at anything. They can get the sound of going to your headphones and the microphone. Be close to your mouth so that could be like a gaming headset. There's there's like usb headsets for Gamers at integrate the microphone Also like analog wants to two plugs on the outside like the one headphone in one. Mike and there are ways to adapt that to a phone With with the the you know the the three conductor phone cables at the microphone built in so there are various ways to do that. I haven't listened to the cable ones in a long time. So I can't tell you what's available there are. There are probably many that. Just go directly without any adapters into a headphone Jack. But there's probably a bluetooth ones. There's some latency issues there. But for this for videoconferencing it'll be fine so generally speaking get the microphone. Close to your mouth now what you do after that. That's up to you whether you want to get super fancy and like a podcast microphone but in the context of video chats. It's not really. That's that important because first of all if you get microphone close to your mouth no matter what it is. You're going to be the best person on the entire call every single time. I guarantee it isn't have to be a great microphone to beat everyone else. It can be and it can be as simple as like. There's this wonderful audio technica. Mike Series the twenty one hundred series There's there's most recently at CR twenty one hundred x I added it to my giant microphone. Mega Review site. Which I guess we can lead to See how it sounds compared to everything else and if you talk close to it it sounds pretty good. And it's I think it's like one hundred bucks and it's a USB EXCELLENT. Are you like added later? Who to a bigger setup if you really wanted to or use it in stuff like that but ultimately all that stuff is kind of overkill what you really just need is a decent headset had actually forgotten and would like to reiterate what you were just saying about using headphones at all when I was still working at a traditional job job we did a lot of Google hangouts were whatever it was called for that minute and one of the things that annoyed me the most because all the mobile team tended to kind of go in and out of the office you know sometimes some of us were always working from home even though we were strictly speaking. All you know based in Richmond so anyway. I noticed that we did like a standup or any sort of meeting. Anyone who didn't use headphones. It was very difficult to hear. Because there's so much like feedback and try and cancellation of the feedback. And so on and so forth just like you were describing Marco. That infuriated me that these people wouldn't just put headphones on even if you're alone just put headphones on. It makes a world of difference so I think that's probably step number. One is to put headphones on and politely in gingerly gently encouraged those. Who are you're meeting with to also put headphones on if possible because there's no chance of out of you? I know I know but if any one of you is doing this open air. It's probably GonNa ruin it for everyone. Look I have. There's a lot of upsides to everybody working at home These days being forced to there are a lot of upsides to however one of the major downsides is via conferences are just fancy conference calls and conference calls are one of the worst forms of communication that humans have ever devised. Because it's just there's so much latency and delay and cross talk and confusion and false starts and it's just a miserable experience for everyone involved even if everyone's really good at it it's it tries to mimic and video. It comes even closer. It tries to mimic being in and hang out but in practice. It's nothing like that. At all and people closer people try to make it act like that the more it falls down that oh no wait you go ahead. No go ahead. I was going to say. Oh wait who's WHO's breathing. It's just it's it's a bad scene so make the most of it get a headset. What the way to beat this get a headset to improve your quality and you're.

"Dollars more and it's significantly faster at twice the ports You know it has much brighter. Pro Screen the air screen is kind of dim. That's actually better computer for one hundred and fifty bucks with otherwise pretty comparable specs. So we're not talking about like super cheap computers in any case. But they haven't been that. That is not new here so the value argument if you're looking at a thirteen inch macbook pro. It's probably not going to be a good value no matter what you do if you want to evaluate math lineup. It's the air or the Base Model. Sixteen inch otherwise. I think they've done a really good job here. You could argue whether the two port thirty inch models should even still exist and I think they only hit price points otherwise go for the four hundred again. Yeah as you know. The reason people are complaining about the lower end. Which by the way Jason Snell in slack while we were recording. They've amusing about the continued absurdity. That apple sells to computers both called the thirteen inch macbook pro. That aren't really the same computer them more or less being in the same case they've always use like different ships and had different performance trade offs in different prices and one of them to not have a touch barn. It's always been kind of weird and so here. We are again in the same spot where we've got these this bifurcation in the thirteen inch line. That is definitely not obvious from a consumer perspective unless you actually look at the specs and understand more about it. And in this particular case they upgraded the the high end one to be what everybody wanted and they upgrade loan on yesterday fix the keyboard but they didn't really change much else about that is you know. It's it's weird that they didn't upgrade upgrade the the the CPU the internal essentially of the lower end thirteen inch and that's making people scratch their head a little bit about it. You don't WanNa feel like you're getting you know. Apple Apple always does with terminology of Eighth Gen tenth. Jen processor right. It's not a ten meter processor processor. But the the Thames. Gen One is and it's the same one that had before and yes you get double the storage and yes you get the good keyboarding and so on and so forth but it's the one you kind of an ugly duckling arguably the escape was also always kind of an ducking unless you really loved that always in which case and so like the comparison that I've been thinking about a lot of people think about us like and you just used it yourself comparing all right. So how do I choose between an air and the low end thirteen because there are sort of in each other's space right you know? There's the obvious physical differences. You can look at them and see what the physical differences are and Ritchie and his new Youtube Channel. Checkout enumerated I think basically all the changes the significant differences between the macbook air and the low in thirteen. The low end thirteen is point. Three pounds heavier displays twenty percent brighter and it's P. Three. It's got a better speaker and microphone. Setup in the air the macbook air has the tenth jen processor but the thirteen inch does not. It has as Gen The thirteen inch has a worse. Gpu and it can't drive the pro display but the macbook air can which is again something. You wouldn't expect like wait a second. The the cheaper non pro model can drive the protas blacks. The are but the supposed thirty inch. Microprobe can't it's because it's older and older chips. Is Anybody driving approach play? Dr With a Mac Bulgare it. Just it I'm just saying like a difference if it's a SPEC difference the worst. Gpo people do care about because it's not like worse by a little bit like if you do anything involving the which may be you do. You're doing being held but then the next day is just a side effect of having the GPO. Doesn't that display stream compression one hour less battery life on the thirteen inch and of course thirteen inches? It's such bar which again like the escapee is like well. Is that a plus or minus right. So there are differences the differences like aside from the display stuff and the speaker and Mike. Everything really is in favor of the air because there's newer the got the new stuff there has got the new GP and CPU. The air uses less power presumably with the new. The era has displaced during compression. Re All those things makes that low and thirteen kind of ugly but that said there you can look at these differences and make the decision that you want about it. The point is if you look at these trade offs and say actually I do want pro because it has these advantages has better cooling or at the eighth. Gen are runs the APP that I want better than attention. One because of thermal throttling. Whatever you decide you want. It's perfectly good computer because now the keyboard is fine again. It's just you can actually pick products based on the specs and not have to have of these weird conversations about with the exception of maybe having about such bar. There's no more sort of like caveats that you're just desperate for everybody to know but I think the fact that this one hasn't been updated still makes that thirteen inch product the most treacherous for the casual consumer because there are differences legitimate differences. Like you know sensible differences but that are not obvious by looking at them in the store because they all look the same right so hopefully this weird low end. Thirteen inch either goes away entirely which I would love. 'cause I don't want there to be a to poor computer called pro but that's just me or eventually. Gets the internals updated when you know? New Chips are available. That are not the exact same chips that are in high in one so if I were to buy something tomorrow which I'm not but would I buy you'd get the high end one with all the goodies and you'd be happy right because that's what you always wanted. You wanted to thirteen inch size computer. That has all of things and has all the ports and his fast and has a good keyboard and this is it ten nanometer Intel processor like Gpu double the storage. That's nothing across. His whole line is the whole you get twice a storage for the same price against their starch. Licensors a stupid but hey it's good right and improves the value. It's it's everything you said. You wanted ver the past many years when you were. You know waffling over. What the buy me ogling now. Yeah I mean I really want one really badly. I don't WanNA spend the money on at this particular moment but I want one My adorable is just. It's it's it's all I love it. I still love it but it's old and it's slow and I want something faster newer. I still love it except that I've hated every moment of using it but I love it. I love it has all these problems. It's slow at the keyboard breaks all the time. It's horrible and the one part of the Houston in the but I love it. I absolutely have. I told you how much money sitting on the couch reading slack with it. I'm sure it's great since element reading not writing I could type on. It works fine. Maybe not so much so great for X. Code Typing is also difficult getting all over the place you know. I was thinking when Margaret was celebrating. The banishment of butterfly keyboard from Apple's laptop line. I was looking at my laptop off of this. I was thinking you know what I think I'm in a I'm in the butterfly. Second Honeymoon period or the second window the butterfly because remember like this is my work laptop and it was twenty seventeen and had the butterfly keyboard and eventually my space bar stopped working right and then I got it replaced on the repair extension program and of course a small percentage of people. Yeah exactly. I'm one. I'm one of the small percentage and when they replaced it of course because a laptop is designed in a way they also gave me a brand new battery and so after using his laptop for two years at work. And you know really hurting the battery doing webex meetings with video and having a spin up just like I got a brand new battery two years into the life of the laptop for free and I only had to be without it for like a week so and my keyboard works again so I have a working keyboard and the battery. It's like new because it is new like three cycles on. I got it so I'm actually not that. I'm glad that I have a butterfly keyboard. But if the butterfly keyboard didn't break my battery would be terrible so if I were to buy one which one would I get? I would think either the two Giga the two Gigahertz five twelve or the two gigahertz terabyte. 'cause I twelve in my dorm I don't meet it but I want. I don't want to be in a position where I'm like. I made the decision a couple years back to just get one terabyte for laptops because I have a similar situation as you. It's not my primary computer so I don't need the biggest store in the world because I'm not keeping everything on it but it is nice to have a bunch of storage for you know not only development stuff because code stuff is massive. You always need tons of space for the EXCO itself and the Betas and the SDK's and everything else and then also you know when you're going on a trip or something when we convention do that do that again. I know I like to bring a lot of download video files Casey. I can only imagine what you bring with you. I I like having a terabyte and most times. I have approximately three hundred gigs free. So like less than five hundred so I know that was generally the right. Move to go to the terabyte and I think thirty two gigs Ram. That's four hundred bucks. Is it worth the two hundred dollars. For the three hundred megahertz and the now the additional turbo boost. No but I always pay. It's it's it's really not most of the time but I because when the increment is that small even though I know we'll probably heard my battery life. I just I just pay for laptops. It's to a little bit more longevity. Because they're the kind of computer that it feels slow before everybody else so I would. I would do it. There's not probably good reason. You probably shouldn't but that's just me. I usually don't get the high. Ram Up Sean. Laptops Sixteen is my ram number for laptops. Even though I get high ram on desktops because on the desktop I leave this thing you know. The time is very very long and I'm leaving all sorts of huge things. Open all the time like right now I. I have like numbers pages. In addition to you know I have slack dash the documentation viewer. I sometimes podcast with ex code and simulator running an open which. I probably shouldn't that happens. Sometimes forecast itunes like I've so many things open right now because it's my desktop. I do everything here on a laptop that I. I'm using as a secondary slash travel workstation. I'm usually more focused on what I'm doing. I'm not usually running everything all at once. Instead of I'm like I'm just echoed echoed like you know male and safari or whatever as opposed to like all sorts of different logic in photoshop. All being open at the same time like I often do here so on laptops. I've been going sixteen GIG for years and it's been totally so four hundred dollars for thirty two gigs to me is not worth at all. Now for those of you out there who are getting as.

"The beautiful website from squarespace. I don't need to spend money on. Wbz So I actually have like three or four thousand dollars to spend right. That's how it works. So which are the new. You're going to buy or have you already bought. No I'm not by anything right now. Not because I don't want but because I shouldn't go anywhere you're not going anywhere. I actually said to Erin earlier today or yesterday. I said you are You know I really want to buy a two thousand and three thousand dollar laptop to go to the grocery store. I'm not going to and do work that I'm doing their right but before we talk about. Wbz There's been date announced it is selfishly inconvenient because I'm supposed to hypothetically be on vacation that week as it turns out. I'm sure I won't be on vacation that week. Because of Corona virus but nevertheless apple is hosting their worldwide developer conference beginning June twenty second so it stands to reason that on the twenty second will be the keynotes And then the rest of it will be all virtual including apparently labs which. I'm really really curious how that's GONNA work but We have a date and it's June twenty second. Yeah of the information in the announcement is not especially new With the exception of a whole bunch of stuff about how to student things will work. There's a whole bunch of new student things they're doing and apparently the only way you can get a WDC. Twenty twenty jacket is by winning one of the student things that you can do but for for non students for kind of the rest of us. The only real news here that we didn't already know is the dates and they did mention labs existing and they said that it was free. We still don't know. I think the big question is like. How are the labs going to work exactly? That's a pretty big question But ultimately this is good. I'm glad to see them. You know laying out a little bit more trickling information as they are ready to. You know this is good for now. This is kind of all we need to know. Anyway I mean. No one needs to make travel plans. All we know now is like all right set aside some time during the week of June twenty second. Because you're gonNA PROBABLY WANNA do some of the sessions or if however the lab's work it's probably GonNa be time based Somehow get some of those labs who knows But you know again. Glad to see we're making progress. We're getting towards this thing. And it seemed at their heads on right and they like it. I think it would have been weird. If they were like all right online reduc- five hundred dollars in like that. That would been strange. So you know. The pricing seems right of being free The focus on a lot of students stuff is fairly typical like they seem to be amping it up a little bit every year. And that's that's a very good And yeah otherwise. It looks good We'll see we'll see how it goes just to not give an end date or I'll just assuming it's a week as normal but they didn't say that anywhere do they. I don't think so and that's WH- keep in mind like this is so new. There are so many assumptions that we have and they might have based on how. It's always been done that we can break. You know and one of the assumptions like does it. Why does it have to be a week? It can be three days or it can be all summer. Who CARES I it? It doesn't really need to have a certain ending date. The only thing that really needs to end is like at some point. The people doing it at apple have to get back to the rest of their jobs. But that doesn't mean it can't be like nine days or four days like you know it could be anything within a certain reasonable range and it would be fine. And of course the sessions air at certain times or on. At certain times they'll get released a certain times but the sessions are available forever. Like you can go on go online now and look back up to like probably at least three or four years ago and they started putting them online you can. You can go back and get previous year session videos. You can search the transcript. You can look at sample code from previous years so like these things have long lifetimes so the only question is like when are these sessions released and because they no longer have this like travel oriented in-person event if they can't release everything they want to release in five days they don't have to? They can take a little bit longer. They can release it over a few weeks if they want to if some. Api is not ready yet. They can wait till it is ready. You know they've been doing that. They would make these little mini presentations and they haven't technology announcements. Were like miniature. Wdc sessions for the past. Several years of those those tend to be shorter but still. That's that's a format to like the marketing for this. One is a bunch of emojis sense behind laptops inside.

"Maybe maybe you could use the force. Tell when you have to hit two during the BIOS. I guess in theory. I could've booted one of because I got two cards one for each pie. I guess I could have put the card in the raspberry Pi four kind of like followed along. You know what I mean just gas. Just watch a youtube video or what he lets drew. I didn't think about that. That's actually a pretty good answer. I'm annoyed because that's a pretty good answer marco. Do you know what the what I feel. Like is the correct answer. Like how would you have handled this because I think you might now? I think there's probably some like configure file you can edit or some like file you create like touch a filed a certain path on the card you can tell it like just automatically figure what this or enable ssh or something like that. That's that's the solution I would look for is something I can modify on this. Sd Card to make it automatically configure enough to the point where I can in his AAC slogan I will award you full credit. Even the you're missing a step but I still award you full credit. Hold hold down a key on the keyboard that you just connected. No no no no. So what I ended up doing was I used an APP called on my Mac to basically reset in reformat the St Card to actually have the OS already on it so not have noobs on it but instead have the full installation on it at that point. This is where Marco you're exactly right you can put a file or touch file called SSh into the root of that file system and it will automatically enable h when it boots however this thing does not have an Ethernet port on it. How do I connect to my Wifi? Which is not exactly open. Open up for two seconds. No one's GONNA attack you. I could is there some like again convict files like this is some conflict file you can put on there. That says like this society with this password as it turns out. Wpa underscore supplicant dot can fig. You set your country a couple other parameters and then you set a network and you say it's such a such a society with such and such pre shared key and sure enough when I plug this thing in suddenly my high there's new raspberry Pi connected to your network and so I was able to at that point. Ssh or if I really wanted to. I guess I could've VNC IF I'd started X. Windows but I was able to ask Shannon. Do everything needed to do but imagine my utter misery. When I finally got my treats that have been waiting like I don't know less than a week ultimately but it felt like forever for I've finally got all the stuff I need and I was there was an Amazon order and a pie shop dot. Us order so two different orders. That happened to come at the exact same time. And I'm all excited with myself. I'M NOT GONNA have to wait for anything ou and I'll be able to talk about it on the show. This is like a double bonus and crap..

"Goes let us feel lessons. You never throat anything. Never throw out and everything. I might need cable someday. That's totally the wrong lesson. No let's be less than when you buy your first raspberry Pi of a certain size. Get the adapter kit with. Everybody sells for like an extra fifteen bucks. That's another lesson you could take from this or you can just horrid all your cables forever like. I know you're GONNA PAY MORE FOR THE CABLES. Adapter is needed. Did for the Pie zero. W because ten dollars but still just there's a reason why those kids exist because like yeah the the first one of these you buy. You're not going to have all the weird little tiny cables IT NEEDS. So just get the Kit the first time. It's like twenty five dollars and then go from there exactly now. I assumed unfortunately that they were the same connector. Why wouldn't they be but they are not? And so now I have a very unique scenario where I do have a keyboard connected hypothetically as it turns out I never tested it. I do have a keyboard connected but I can't see anything and that's going to make things challenging. So what does one do now? You might know the answer to this but I'm curious John and this is an unfair question. I'll be the first to tell you it's not fair question but what would you try? John in order to fix this problem. Jess's as into it and use a big expensive thousand dollar computers. Dumb certainly accept that there no address on it as yet remember that noobs the first thing you do is you choose what? Os to put on it using a keyboard and display and then at that point you could probably into it. But what do you do? You can just do feel..

"But let me remind you that as we discussed last week when I was W or two ago the garage door completely buckled and we got a whole new garage door and a whole new garage door opener so this is not one of the like twenty year old godawful extremely loud extremely rickety garage door openers. Or at least not yet I take your point you very well may be right. I haven't even attempted to mount these little sensors so to speak on the garage door or anywhere near it but my hope is that it will at least be able to get close enough. Maybe I mean like what kind of tolerance is. We HAVE APPLE STYLE. Iphone tolerances adverts sub millimeter precision with comes to rest and exactly the same spot every time. I guess we'll find out we will find out that that's part of tomorrow's mission as well if I if I'm procrastinating on doing them yet Image Related Work and memory related. Work than. I'll be trying to mount all this and see if I get that. We have some other followup from Colin mckellar who wrote in with regard to arm predictions. So we had said last episode that we couldn't remember when each of us had wagered the arm transition. If it happens would happen. And Colin wrote that an episode two hundred eighty five starting at about three minutes and forty eight seconds into the episode and this was from the thirtieth of July twenty teen We had meets predictions and according to Colin and I didn't verify if this was exactly right but I take I take them at their word I had said some time in five to ten years from two thousand eighteen which puts that at twenty three twenty twenty three twenty eight with the first Mac definitely by two thousand twenty three. I think the context was when with the transition start. When would it be done? John said you said it would be done in ten years which is twenty twenty eight with a fast transition once it starts however an episode three hundred six at about nine thirty six minutes. Apparently you had said you'd be surprised if there were no Max. By Twenty Twenty. One Mark was the most Aggressive and bold. You had said the first one within two years which would put that at about mid mid this year and the last Intel MACs sold within five years. Which would be about twenty twenty three and then finally calling also noted that on the talk show Gruber Upset Two hundred twenty seven. Gruber had noted that he think it'll be announced last year with a transition this year. So we'll see what happens. I feel pretty good about that. I I I think this summer is probably too soon as I said. At the beginning of my range at But that's not by that much I'm guessing it's probably going to be at the earliest. Possibly this fall at the latest probably next fall problem with all these predictions as they were like in two thousand eighteen ish and that's a little bit too close because by then we had like rumors and we all. We were all informed by the same stories. Coming out of leaks type stuff gang at Apple. It's difficult. The predictions that are that are close to the event we start getting. Some real information is not just hunches. That's why we're that's why we're all clustered around this kind of thing. It's just a question of. How long do we expand? I remember this conversation but I imagine my ten year thing was like well like one mackinaw hold on for a long time presumably Mac pro. Who knows like so? Could you know what I'm saying like by ten years? It's got to be done but I was basically probably railing against there was the idea that they're going to permanently. Keep like the Mac pro eighty six or something and I just don't see that happening so the other thing we had talked about at some point in the past and I. We didn't talk about this last week. Did we what is going to be the first to go arm. We've talked about it before you know we've absolutely talked about it before I'm saying what do you think? Now I mean before I think we I think we said the twelve inch which no longer exists and it could come back exist again right like I could come back as that. I think if I had to guess I'M GONNA get the map book air now. I don't know if it's going to be a single like you say is going to be one. Mac I mean I suppose it could. There's no reason but like obviously we're thinking laptop because that makes the most sense and then it's just a question of which laptop could it be? Laptops I still kind of rooting for that thing. They have apple. Hasn't that in a while? They've been much more conservative. Where you pick a guinea pig machine you do. It eventually rolls out to the other products right but I kind of miss the days when they were. Just guess what. Here's our new line of arm-powered laptops and it's all of them or it's the air that their macro and then we'll talk about later and sixteen inch. It's just three computers. Apple could do it. So that's not my prediction. But that's what I'm rooting for my prediction. There in the current line of its own assay. You know I would say the same but mark was really messed with my mind by saying it's something new I I wonder if it would be something new. It could be the I said the twelve inch said that we just mentioned the twelve inch could come back in the form of a new Fan Lewis. Right th. That's what I'm talking about like. I don't know if he would necessarily be the twelve inch but it wouldn't surprise me if there's some sort of new thing. I la the air when it was brand new or perhaps the adorable when it was brand new something. Ios Laptop and is laptop. You never know things could get crazy. I mean could also argue though that like the eleven inch ipad with various keyboard options that are now available satisfies a lot of that need for a super tiny laptop with like that was previously saw twelve inch but ultimately like this is the reason. I guess the Medicare is that it's just such a massive hit. It hit such a sweet spot of needs for most people pretty well satisfied the really the one area that the map air really is not so great at is CPU performance. And so that's the area. Where arm could really help. They're like it's not so great and see performance because they need a super low wattage part from Intel to fit that chassis and thermal design and until like the best until can do with that wattage. I bet apple could do better. And no one's going to argue against the getting more battery life as well right so it's a crowd pleaser. That computer put an arm in that thing. And no one's going to question why this computer exists in what the benefits might be. Yeah I immediately like day one. An arm macbook air. I would buy it immediately. Like 'cause the car Medicare again. It's it's wonderful in many ways. It really is an amazing size. Like even even the previous one with the butterfly keeps. I never bought one but I handled one a few times like in a store and like people would pick it up and play with it and it felt great. It's a great feeling. Form factor that just the size and the wedge shape really feels good and they've done a good job with the other like physical stuff like the hinge and everything too but like. I love my sixteen inch and I'm glad I have it most of them using it but I can't deny there is a very strong appeal of like a super small laptop that can still somehow make a good balance of screen size and power and everything else and the current air is a little bit too slow. We'll get to this later. We're talk about Jiang's current air is a little bit too slow for me like I. I would feel that pretty frequently but an arm. Version could plausibly. Be Faster enough to really close that gap between it and the current pros or even surpass them the other angle and this is the the other like the second most likely or maybe maybe the tide as if you think about you know we're keeping like which computer would benefit most from our and where does it make sense to have arm. Yada Yada Yada all factors but the other factor is like okay but this will be the first one so I was going to have the most growing pains. You Really Wanna put those growing pains and those compromises and explain it to buyers are most popular product or. I think this is what they do with or do you want to instead. Put it in the sixteen inch just because so few people by that and the people who buy what they're getting into in terms of whatever ambulation there might be your compatibility concerns. You know what I mean to let the the more expensive lower volume computer be the first one just to shake out all the kinks get it settled because by putting it in the macbook air. There's probably bestselling Mac than now. You have this thing that you have to explain to people especially if you don't sell the x eighty six one anymore. It's like oh I was gonna get a Mac but here the software right anymore. Something or other. That's the risk with doing it on your most popular to begin with doesn't mean they're not GonNa do it just the opposite argument and the way that you could end up having it in the top End Laptop. I right put it in the Mac pro I if the first one they make a sixty four but I'm not holding my breath for that you know if you'll permit me to go back a step. I forgot to mention a small tail of low..

"I have some bad news. I've just been notified. The email from apple subjects lined your apple news channel. No it hasn't been updated in this. Is Marco Dot Org? We noticed that you have not published Marcus at Org channel in three months or more your channel be removed in one week period. Oh well good. Cre- regards the Apple News team. Oh well. It doesn't say that if I publish now it'll get me out of this. It just says you're moving a week period like there's no if you don't publish got the same notice but the but they're notice said if you call there's something in a reactivated maybe I'm wrong. I think that was Dana Jacket. But I don't know anyway. It's the market in channel. I don't care I like I. I don't know how many first of all I published. My channel just doesn't RSS Feeds submitted to them and my regular ours is feed. I don't have any special apple news tags. So I I think they were deprecating s base channels anyway aren't they deprecating them or something anyway kept up that. I tried to do the same thing and something must be wrong about my rss feed because they always refused it for reasons. I never quite understood and I didn't care enough to fix it and nobody has ever ever ever asked me about it now. To be fair I probably have one tenth of your readership but nevertheless I can't remember a time that anyone was came in. Can you put that National News? I honestly would be surprised if my readership could be divided evenly into tents like I might have eight people reading it in Apple News. I think it's going to be a very small number. Never liked that apple news APP when I never tried to get. My annually updated blog into it for multiple reasons. Well DARN GONNA lose all those eight page. I don't even measure pages anymore. How did they even show up? Like how would you tell someone can travel news? Have Their user agent. I assume there. There's probably at least like a crawler user agent and I would assume that every time they view the page. Maybe if we're going to report after sign up for like I because I don't think it's actually making a web request to you weeks time right. You have to go to the Special Apple Webpage with no API and you have to look at. You have look at a graph where they round things. Yeah right I have to go to like apple web connect or something and and look at only opt in stats for people who viewed my content. And Yeah I don't even I don't even look like I don't have logs enabled. I don't even have google analytics enabled anymore haven't for years. I had like when I publish something on my site. I have absolutely no idea how many pages gets and it's incredibly liberating like. I highly recommend anybody out there who like has stuff online remove the counters. You will be shocked how great it feels or just have no make you. Don't worry about speaking of apples like websites where you supposedly can go to see some kind of number. You would think that the one web system they would have that would be accurate thorough fairly. Well vetted would be stuff related to the APP store because that's real money If you don't have a free APP it's real money traveling back and forth and real money. Usually people are accounting for the real money but boy they you know they not make it easy to figure out what's going. I mean maybe this is just not understanding money. Granted I'm not. I'm not an accountant. I don't understand. The world of finance is very confusing. But I have to APPs the the second most simple thing I can imagine doing during any a given pay period. I'M NOT GONNA say month because I know finances too complicated for pedestrian concepts like months any given pay period. How much money did I make off of one of my aps? But there's no tell that I mean they have a report that supposedly gives you an answer but the answer is wrong and I know that because for one pay period I only had one month one APP and so I could say now. Run the report and tell me. How much did that one APP make during that period and it's different than the amount they paid me? This is their system. I'm never going to know how this works. It's close it's like within two percent like maybe refunds or something. You're kidding so I run the reports and I download them and I keep them. But it's just like I don't understand why these numbers not match up in the end. The money they give me the money they give me and I trust the dust the money. They're supposed to be giving me but you know. Try running those reports doesn't make any sense. Yeah it's so two things number one I recommend using figures is a paid service is not an ad but yeah I have found is the best way to kind of make sense of apples weirdo reporting and provide useful graphs and everything. I've been using them for a long time. But the F. is also does not match the amount actually received from apple against US sales they also have the payments area. The payments usually car able to derive what it actually means right but I I get one. I don't do what you do which I should've which is like one apple. Id APP right. So I have my two APPS under one appleaday so they pay me some amount and some of that is attributable to last and some of it's attributable different center. How much free chap I mean again. You can run the report like pass filter by parent. Apps that it's in their software and then they give you a graph that's rounded and then you can download accelerator has exact number five hundred decimal places but it's off. It's so hard to just try to solve them. Figure IT OUT. Sometimes it's a few cents or whatever just annoys me. Yeah that's why like back forever. When I had that stupid idea to have some kind of like pay overcast dollars a month and then all split it up between the podcast you listen to and distribute it to them like. I was thinking about doing that kind of scheme before. Podcasters told me they don't want that a surprise nobody wants to be getting in the way of them and their money. I should know that before because I'm the same way but I for some reason I didn't think about that anyway. So one of the problems with that plan is assuming had to take at purchase because otherwise apple would never allow it not only thirty percent But also I would have no good way to to account for like how much money that I actually receive from user. Id One two three four this month. 'cause you get that lump sum payment and you can't actually know like you can't you? There's no way to correlate a user. Id to an amount of money you definitely received because there's so many different exceptions and there's things like refunds cancellations there's foreign currency exchange messes everything up the exchange. The exchange stuff is like all those things that are often could entirely different exchange rates because the reporting that what you got paid what the exchange rate was at the moment of the Blah Blah Blah. Theory the big finance agreement but then the reporting could be different. It's very confusing. Yeah and like the whole reason. Why early the whole the whole basis of a system like that would be like? I need to know when you know for your seven dollars. You know how to split it up between the PODCAST. You listen to the whole this actually plays into the whole world of big services like youtube premium or read. Whatever it's called this month Or spotify or apple music anything where like the customers pay a flat rate and that gets distributed based on whatever they listen to like to artists or whatever the way those work is incredibly scam prone because they can't do it either they also don't track. Your five dollars does not get split between the five artists. You listen to this month. Everyone's five dollars a month goes into a giant pool and they just track number of listens so it doesn't matter if you listen to five artists this month and bought somewhere in Russia to one hundred thousand artists this month. Your money's pulled together first and then it's divided up by views so you might think that you are helping like the three bands you listen to a lot. You only listener three and spotify this month or whatever but no. You're not helping them at all like you'd be a lot more if you left everything streaming all day twenty four seven like and there's this whole ecosystem of scams and click farms and all this other crap like increase view counts and time spent listening stuff like that to skim off more of the pool than what they actually have earned. It's a whole thing and of course I didn't want to deal with any of that and my stupid plan wouldn't have wouldn't have really worked that way anyway but the reason why no one does that is because it's too hard to track how much money you actually got from each individual person each month and in the end you're trusting the same company to do accounting on itself right. It's all sort of like an honor system right so I mean they have no particular reason until they start getting pay off the record. Companies to use them lingo from the seventies or whatever but like apple doesn't have any particular reason to lie to you about how much money you're making right but it's also just well you know like that's my like my instinctual. I A feeling when the APP store was announced that people are going to stop receiving checks from customers and start. Receiving checks signed by Apple. It seems like it's the same thing but it's not. It's way that used to though it used to be for the first two or three years of the APP store you would get paid in wire transfers from I think seven or so different places around the world from various apple subsidiaries for different regions. So every month you would get seven wire. Transfers six of which were foreign wire transfers so depending on your bank account you might be paying like hundreds of dollars a month and wire fees and then you have to resolve all right. Y- like seven different deposits and it was crazy setup and unfortunately a couple of years and they fixed it to just have one direct deposit and that I got to. I got to this last pay period. I got to apple. Deposits L. Really I don't understand the other APP actually. Yeah it's one per apple. Id because you you'll have the one. I'm selling both roosting. I I have have received payments months when both were for sale and I got one payment Right this time. I got to payments which signed like they want to send me three payments for payments money. Just mysterious I just noticed them as separate line items in my bank account. I'm like That's funny where they send the. It's the right amount. If you add them together you know there it is. That's all weird. I'm still angry about the fact that I couldn't change my company named I complain about that. On the show at some point now was so angry about it when it happened but by the time we recorded. I chilled out and realize it doesn't actually matter but boy in the moment I was angry I actually sent the closest ever gotten to send during an angry email was replied to some helpful. Person was trying to tell me what I wanted to do. Was NOT POSSIBLE THOUGH. Those like this is dumb so angry. I got an email literally for. This is dumb spitting fire there. John Thumbs down. I just like I was angry but but I didn't WANNA say something. That was angry but like what can I say? That's not based on emotion but his true. I'm like you know what this is. Actually it is truthful statement. I'm talking about is since I had just freshly signed up for you know my developer coundon all that stuff remember it at some point during the process. The something you guys might not remember this because know that you signed up Margaret. This didn't even exist. It was like Oh and by the way as you're clicking through these things type and stuff in boxes if you'd like your practice show up on the store like with a different name that's visible to customers. Type that name here and at the time I signed up I was doing just me like my name right and so now I don't want that right. Just Johnson Accuses. Find Chopin the developer in the store and I did that for a while and eventually amend myself company and switch it over to that and that took like a month and a half to get through all that red tape. And I'm like and then I went to the APP store and I realized that my name was no longer visible..

We end this week sox to watch with our single stock focus this week we discussed uber and its profitability problem. Uber has been in a decline of late enclosed friday at just over thirty three dollars seeking author richard durant took a look at the stock last week and call that profitability problem structural structural durant lays out some of his points upfront investors have been sold division of a company which will dominate large parts of the transportation industry yet uber presents. No clear path to profitability autonomous vehicles and drones are the future of the transportation industry. The value created by these technologies will be captured by technology leaders like google amazon uber is unlikely to ever be profitable and has no intrinsic value durant goes on to say uber's core services ridesharing which they are trying to leverage to capture value in the meal delivery and logistics industries uber hopes that by extending their portfolio of services mrs they can create economies of density. This could be important for the food delivery market as food delivery is many many unlike ridesharing which is one to one and freight eight which is one too many making it far more complex to operate efficiently uber believes their total addressable market is twelve point three trillion making their current market penetration approximately point one percent according to those figures uber's growth story is only just beginning but their financial performance does not support this uber's in revenue and growth have declined to relatively modest levels suggesting revenue will plateau sooner rather than later uber is quick to promote their total addressable market which represents approximately approximately fifteen percent of all economic activity globally but it is a meaningless figure which is clearly overstated uber will reach market saturation long before they reached the total addressable the market and this is borne out by the rapidly declining growth rate durant continues uber has a commission based business model which means there is very little operating leverage. They should give pause to even the most bullish of uber investors as it dramatically limits the scope for an improvement in profitability as the business scales there is some potential that economies enemies of scale and fixed costs like our indian administrative costs will be spread over a larger revenue-based but profitability will continue to largely be determined by the commission uber can command and the incentives required to keep riders and drivers loyal to the platform durant concludes here based on a discounted cash flow model. I estimate that uber has no intrinsic value. Even if relatively generous projections for growth are used and assuming a modest level of profitability is eventually achieved uber short-term losses insurer. You're has no intrinsic value to justify uber's current share price. A dramatic shift in the underlying economics of uber's business must be assumed this may come from autonomous vehicles economies of density or the development of monopoly but i do not believe any of these are likely uber's future will most likely involve dramatically reducing its ambitions uh-huh focusing on cities and services where it is most likely.

"Our body. Do what it was naturally designed to do in. I am a firm believer in. I was actually told back that I worked without this spa that you're meant to live with headaches in. I I remember hearing that and being like almost like how dare you? Because you haven't lived my life in like, I can't control this like how can you say that to me like what are you saying that I'm broken but in? In fact, it's like there's a lot of things in my life that needed to change. And then it's like, yeah, we actually aren't meant to live with headaches. So we use these essential oils. We learned that they help our body do is nationally designed to do. But with that point is well when I first got into central oils. I remember I was actually teaching at the time at the local high school, and I put a specific oil in my diffuser, and I put a lot in everyone at said like go slowly s- when you're first Weiner beginner like only one to two drops. Now is like whatever you guys, you're crazy. So put like seven drops in there. I had the worst headache in that room. And I was like so again for me, I'm norm- I'm used headaches. I'm like, well, what is what's going on? Like, why am I having this horrible headache ends up? I leave that room and actually the headache goes away. So I was having to reaction to this oil that I was using which actually I'd heard at the time like sometimes you can have sort of like this detox reaction to these oils. Because there's so much junk that we are just our bodies are under attack. Like, I was talking about that these oils kind of have to come in and let clean us out. So we might experience some affect so with that if you get into oil, you're trying to help out these other issues understand that you might face those issues in the first half of it or the first part to then get you to the ultimate goal when you're bound certain. Yeah. I remember getting the text from you because you're like a brand new and you were so excited to use your oil yet. You're likes him. I I don't think I can use these oils like this is making my headache worse. No like you like you gotta slow down. You gotta ios last. And like politically stick with it. So. Yeah. Are you glad you did? Oh, my yes. And this is one of the things that I'm so passionate about them because it changed my whole life style. So it was like dipping the toe in the water. And now, I'm just all in. But the oils were the thing that kind of helped me be intrude to this to this world to this lifestyle. Yeah.

"Com. Well, I'm here with my dear friend, a least Serano at least as a part time nurse, a Dula and a wedding and birth videography. She is married to a worship pastor, and they live in a small town here in North Carolina with their two dogs jazzy in buddy. She is the creator of the toxin free fam- community and has a dream to see as many families as possible have toxin free homes at least welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me Sam, this is so exciting. I am so excited to dive into this topic specifically about headaches. I know that when I met you gosh, how long ago was that four years ago five years ago. I remember just like texting and trying to, you know, hang out and and hit up, and I swear like half of the times he'd be like, oh, I can't like I have a migraine. I have a headache. I just I. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. And so tell me a little more about for people who don't know you what that struggle with headaches has looked like through the years. Absolutely. Well, yeah. For people who. Don't know many people who do they can obviously attest to back that used to have headaches all the time and thinking fhu back through my history. I have this very early memory of in fifth grade. I ended up getting a headache while used to get migraines at that point imagery school. And so the earliest memory that I have of one was we were on our fifth grade filled trip, and we were going to Washington DC, and we were all supposed to have this dinner and dancing party, something that you're so excited for in fifth grade, and I started to feel a headache coming on which led into a migraine by that night full blown migraine. You know, can't be around any sound can't be around any smells have to be in complete darkness. And so I ended up having to miss out on half of that party in my hotel room just sleeping in completely pitch black room. There was a nurse there with us, and she was like here take these two to excedrin migraine as fifth grader just to be able to get the headache to go away. So I could go join the. Party in. So and I don't remember if this was before fifth grade or after fifth grade, but I remember I used had to go get an MRI scan done a CAT skin done vision checks. My mom, even though she never confessed this to me. I know that she was concerned about me may be having brain cancer. Like, it was that severe and how frequent that constant so fast forward a little bit to more high school college era, they had kind of stopped being migraines. But I was still having headaches once a week and there was a season of life where it was like every Thursday. So like a cyclical cycle headache. I always have them every week. So again, I stopped having the migraines. But I was able to manage them instead of with excedrin with Abby profane. But here's the kicker. So I was taking ibuprofen all the time. So the smaller amounts would it work. I was taking up to six IB pro Finn, which is twelve hundred milligrams. So for reference one. Pill is two hundred. I was taking six that is like death to your kidneys it when you're in the hospital. So again, she mentioned on nurse who when you're in the hospital, and you have kidney issues. They don't even give you out of your profile. They won't let you have any of it. And here, I am taking six Ivy, bro. Fins every week sometimes more because the headache might not go away super scary. I was like asking for dialysis and asking for art attack. So that was during like high school college time in anything will why would you even have to take medicine? But like if I didn't take medicine it wouldn't go away. It would just continue and continue in continue. So the faster Arctic medicine it was better off. But I still I remember my husband would say at least just take some medicine Bali, babe. I don't want to because it's so bad perky like it's so bad for my stomach..
