I used to do a lot of litigation on it definitely suits coat. But you know you'll climb can be accompanying infant have for our next kettle officials from monica. What's your burning question. My question is on the on. This topic is do we have to change for. The virtual world is the virtual world more formal we set and have to change. I think for the through our laughing fits day. I think it will be difficult but that genie back in the buffalo. I'm i think there's an awful lot. That's fantastic about working remotely conventionally. I think we have to. We have to work at it though. We can't just assume that we do the same thing sitting in all studies looking at a screen. We have to plan for it more. We have to workout. How what's going to be the new way of working better so it's it's not going to be a straightforward transition that is definitely a transition happening gonna stay with the low of concrete all right so i'm up last. I'm gonna ask you what your definition of knowledge management is. And then. I'm gonna save my burning question till you've explained to us all what k- hey so for like really simple definitions knowledge management. I think Sent me and my sector about the knowledge peak needs to do the jobs to the at the moment that they need it. You know said well informed contracts too tight so that the litigation doesn't Cools the fem problems with negligence than unmet clients are happy. I'm not gonna get very important to be clear that that knowledge comes in quite a variety of states so we do in the legal sector have lots of knowledge they stay forward that we write down putting precedence or that way non about processes we translate that into software used to manage. Aw hase's through their life cycle but we mustn't forget that there's also knowledge that is impossible to write down an needs to be shed bypasses pus contacts and we must get the facts exist on the end of that spectrum so the burning question is this do law firms that you experience. Have you worked with Or know about are they going to adopt or have they adopted the international standard three zero four zero one for knowledge management systems and what percentage do you see law firms or lawyers or higher. You're the industry. Doing knowledge management. Each really really interesting thing that legal factors response to be international standard. When it first came out. I was huge. Amounts of interest in it still is a lot of interest in the standard law. Firms often prefer not to spend money on things like that when they do need to and at the moment that there isn't a huge cry from clients saying olano fans must be compliant. So there isn't a huge amount of investment in combined with standard in order to be accredited but there is still a lot of interest in the standard itself. A lot of people using it alongside writing. Their strategies are a lot of people. Who are the bread akeso. I did this aspect of knowledge mentioned. Well that actually the standards showed me. That is now so informally on going to use it to make my new phone. Better acknowledge management so. I think that's where the sector is at the moment. There's a lot of interest. And i think people are afraid to anything like that until the client say they have to have this Perhaps not much investment as you would see in the sectors and what percentage of law does knowledge management. Well i'll say that all low funds do some knowledge management. We used to do knowledge management before we even knew what knowledge management was. What i was chubby back in the cages was when i was doing my trading check. You know one of the first things to was. He paid collection of my own of documents. That i were in chesting or things that i had written and created but were good quality things and nobody really talked about what it was but that was a very kind of knowledge collection. A personal knowledge management system. All of my own. So we better than the. When i was a chain eight Shut me do it naturally.

Because i know how much you know about. How union lawyer chained up but after they've done their regis university in that one mir professional exams in uk very traditionally. What they would do is two years as what they call the trainee or in by day long time ago used to be an optical clock and then two years they would sit in with a partner in every monday would just listen to what the partner the have a handful clients than part would be on hands on any questions that they might have. You know i'm not has been the trading model for hundreds of years. Another repented refined it. This is how we replaced that these days when when people come sit in the same office sometimes. isn't it as well all the conflict resolution and that type of the soft skills that come with it. Yeah no i understand. But i think the one thing that has done has meant that they are when a bit flatter now. The we used to be people have more access. I think sometimes more content and more assets than there used to have do we need to know looks dot creating those watercooler moments online and not just bumping into people not just make it so so in that is it has actually have more of a structured intervene intervention. feel to it are they. You know lots about communities of practice that type of community that type of collaboration at type of loss of experts in one place able to onto questions is that something that community law firms are experimenting with me. What they're telling me and an awful lot of ood cameras a telling me but actually surprised at how well more senior members of staff taking to replacing you know that in person communities eventual communities. They kind of expected a lot. More resistance to the new technologies. Because we start about has kinda how expedient all in all that has been a lot of resistance but actually people seeing the benefit to the thing that they're able to be at home and they're able to see that Will do work and communicate with their colleagues and chevette thoughts and ideas online. So it's yeah. People are people having mixed results. Nothing it's a it's a moment of experimentation people trying lots lots of different methods to replace what we used to do.

What happens to the folks that get pushed out of that workforce due to technology innovation. My experience is that there is a ground flour of opinion that we shouldn't go back to the way things used today on most lofa major. I am talking to pass lay recognize. There is a big issue. If we don't go back to the way things that will then grow to groups that will be the greeks that more engaged in the office. You are four days a week and then there will be groups. That are two days a week in the office or whatever. The minimum is firm decides the way the logo in into days will tend to be those with carrying on civilities they will be parents and younger children. But certainly the To off every aware of that and they are trying that the ways where they could mitigate that problem. Maybe if everybody's doing a couple of days at home people will be more aware of the risks of fats and will think more about including people in online videos with clients. will you know including the Contributing to community of practice will two k and people in in an enormous have a lo- a big role to play in this because we are used to put an in place. These scheduled activities that increase collaboration. The face we had the league's whether links here where the brokers people exactly so exactly audu km people now have a big role to play them.

They need to have it accessible and they also subtly appreciate why i was always pushing them to join community practice or join cheney then on there has seen i think switch in understanding. The people do now yet. Why paying for overhead. Let's be honest. The pianist running the patch on the chantrey people. Are you know high to smooth. Wales improved profitability. But we do often get seen as an overhead. Well talk about overhead. Let's talk about the five thousand dollar conference table that has to be with a plush leather chairs and all that other stuff that goes with the physical space that you talk overhead.

So when you finish commission to you just finish the painting itself and then handed over and then say do whatever you want or do you give some recommendations. Do you have some frames that you you you choose to put on as part of the commission like is that part of the peace to you or is that separate if i used to make to make defend myself but i used to may get the carpenter to and like heavy rolled dark everything and then i after a while i saw that to customers to actually get rid of the frame and then i thought well then there's no point making so much effort into this part so i started to recommend them myself and said you can choose this.

Like you find something and you become a master of it and that's your career so that you don't keep changing and adjusting and at least dramatically. Of course you'll grow hopefully quote unquote hopefully grow. But i mean. Is it a generational thing that they feel that. They can sort of work in many mediums. Whereas like you're close to my agent about the same age as me that we feel like you should find a single thing and be masterful at. It is probably. It is seems like as you described you supposed to do lots of things. You should test out there thing up stick to it than than jump into another on and you have so many possibilities today.

Is it all social media or is it like in person experiences. It's mostly people. Contact me because they have seen it or heard of something somewhere else at it. Kind of spreads to the grass is like okay. She does portrait commissions or she just does commission someone get another one and of course. It's a little bit in social media but mostly through people they rely more than on other words or recommendations more than just like finding someone in the books china's. I would imagine if i wanted a portrait done. I would wanna see somebody else's portrait done. So i would imagine a lot of it would be like friend of a friend. Who saw the portrait's in their friend's house and said oh. I want one like that in my house. Kind of thing of my family. Yeah not just family. I do also feels so.

Just a second of the person. And i need hours which is not just the surface is like really trying to sounds tacky. But it's like bringing the sole being person bringing the story behind the person in the portraits photo cannot give you all this information but then looking at your work. So you were talking about how you do exhibitions of work. But you also do commissions. Your exhibitions of of your work seemed to be more. I don't know how to put it sort of dreamlike. Almost is it like. Do you do that kind of work in your commission's or is that just something you've keep for yourself as sort of your fine art production commission i do is also the dream in a dream way as you call it. It means that they actually have a dream or they have story. They would like to tell so. I have painted people like gets into another rove.

Something really really meant to galvanize the world or whatever that the just being in the world was an and being an appreciation of it was enough and that was probably about. I would say twenty years ago now and that changed. Change a lot for me from that moment on i sort of branched out became more experimental thought thought of life more as a place of learning as as opposed to a place of doing. And maybe that's how maybe that's how we all get older right. Because the older we get the more we realized we don't know that was my that was my i don't know moment and it's hard to be in a place where you don't know i think the i think the most courageous thing That a person has to do to be a place of of not being okay with not knowing everything And also you know for those if you haven't done it yet. Growing older is is is a journey of courage and faith in of hope and all of that. So of course i'm gonna live to a hundred and fifty so i'm only not even halfway through. That's a good plan right then. Then you don't have to worry about the end for as long as you don't have to worry so you can make you go a little bit further into the future.

Georgia Senate debates make headlines ahead of runoff
"Voting in georgia for the january senate elections begins one week from today. On december fourteenth debates for both georgia's senate races were held last night in atlanta. Here's republican senator. Kelly leffler and democrat reverend raphael warnock. My question is a pretty simple. Yes or no. Senator leffler did donald trump lose a recent presidential election. President trump has every right to use every legal recourse available in our own state. We've seen time and again that we have investigations that need to be completed. The trump campaign has filed fifty three frivolous lawsuits claiming election fraud courts. Actually the lawsuits did not ever claim fraud. Not in a single one of those losses. Did they claim fraud. Once they got in a court courts found zero instances fraud that includes one case. George that was dismissed today by a federal judge appointed by president. George w bush drudges republican. Senator david perdue who is facing allegations of insider trading. Just refuse to show up to debate as challenger don crat jon ossoff who appeared next to an empty lecture. My message for the people of our state at this moment of crisis is your senator feels entitled to your vote. Your senator is refusing to answer questions and debate his opponent because he believes he shouldn't have to. He believes this senate seat belongs to him. The senate seat belongs to the people today. John also held a campaign event in lilburn georgia. Imagine being a. us. Senator afraid of answering questions in public for fear that he might incriminate himself at a moment. Like this when people are hurting joining us. Now is who and castro. The former secretary of housing and urban development in the obama administration. Former mayor of san antonio texas secretary castro. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. You're back on the campaign trail today. Jon ossoff tomorrow for raphael warnock What are you seeing out there. Especially in response to this weekend's debate last night's debate where a david did not even show up. It's good to be with you lawrence. But what i've seen is a lot of people georgia understand how important the stakes are here. They understand that what happens here in georgia is gonna affect not only all georgians but also all of us as americans. I think most of gay and what they saw in the debates last night. Reinforce this that in a senators leffler purdue they've had two people that endorsed most critical moment of need have chosen to serve themselves to enrich themselves benefit their friends instead of working on behalf of the people of georgia. And what they see an rafael warnock in jon. Ossoff our to folks who are committed to serving the people georgia who were talking about the issues that matter healthcare job getting small suspect up in going housing opportunity as many people facing eviction making sure that we tackle climate change in the biggest challenge of our generation so the the differences here couldn't be more clear. Let's listen to more of what john also had to say on the campaign trail today. And how are these campaigns. These two democratic campaigns a sound like a partnership. Let's listen to this. You got the young jewish journalist son of an immigrant running alongside a black preacher who holds the same pulpit as dr king at the knees baptist church building a movement for health jobs and justice for the people at a moment of crisis because health jobs and justice are what the people need right now and we are running against the bonnie and clyde of political corruption in america secretary castro that kind of teamwork is unusual. Most people would. They're running for office. They're just trying to get themselves over that hurdle. Well it is. And i think we're fortunate that we have these runoffs going on at the same time as you know. Lawrence doesn't not happen where you have to united states senate seats in a runoff at the same time and i think they've done a very good job as a team and painting making sure that their message is clear about what they're gonna do for the people of georgia that get his asses the work to make sure that folks have good opportunities in georgia. And that's how they're going to govern governed in a much stronger way for the people of georgia than a leffler and purdue. Have i want to listen to something. That reverend warnock said last night in his debate because interestingly both democratic campaigns are running against republican candidates credibly accused of insider trading using their senate positions for insider trading. Let's listen to what the way reverend warnock put it. Last night. She was only there three weeks. i'm not sure she was fully unpacked when she started dumping millions of dollars of stock trying to protect herself and She purchased. That seat is done well for her. The issue is that the people who sold it to our. Don't it and the people of georgia coming back to get their seat sir. Castro is that issue getting traction on the campaign trail is especially. Because you're is somebody in kelly lafleur who was not elected Who last night into debate. You could tell just said the same thing over and over and over again and instead of addressing the issues basically just tried to label roselle warna you know as do liberal for georgia when he was there actually talking about the things that we hear people talking about table being able to afford the rent. You know wh what is their gonna come back online. What is washington dc. Doing work to make sure that they have opportunity. And to make sure the infancy can get asked endemic It's night and day away. That worn can also addressing the issues. That people are talking about the care about right now. And i'll disconnected leffler and her do our sanitary helene. Castro live from the campaign trail in georgia. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Really appreciate

They're about to receive. My toes are over the edge I. Look out over the Embassy River, and then I hear it three to one bungee. Jump off the platform with a grin on my face and start screaming, Hoo. I take it all in my initial weightlessness, my rate of acceleration, the of the cliffside, the rushing water below, and finally the deceleration has the Bungee saves me from a much shorter life than I would like. I bounce up and down another half dozen times before the experience comes to an end is the best one hundred fifty seven dollars. I've ever spent the not just because of the Bungee jump was even more valuable. Was the lesson I learned in preparing for this experience? One day earlier. On the morning of August twenty, second might travel Buddy Michelle inform me that due to a tight travel schedule, I'd be jumping on August twenty third, not August twenty fourth, as at initially prepared for I didn't say anything at the time, but it didn't sit well with me at all. Up to that point I'd been confidence. I played out the day in my mind for weeks and I felt in control this change tip. The scale and fears favor the reality now. Is that Bungee jumping? If it were still on, the table was to happen number one a day earlier than expected number two after a morning flight on a four seater Bush plane. Those are always eventful number three shortly after we arrived at our lodge, rob our bags, check in and take a shell to the bridge and number four with no. Way To get oriented or settle in. Let's just say that I wouldn't be in my happy place. Later that evening my friends started speaking enthusiastically about the jump, and stopped her dead in her tracks, and informed her that the change made a significant difference to me the sense we were rushing to get in and the fact that I felt I lost some control of the situation changed my jump status from green to amber with a tinge of red. She struggled to understand and I struggled to explain. Processing the change. I've told many crazy stunts over the years. Bucket list does not lie. Bungy was far from the toughest, but of needed to feel that I was in control of the variables surrounding the experience, which both insured I felt safe, and that I can enjoy the moment if anything didn't feel right at all is giving myself permission to walk away Guilt Free I. Guess You could say that I needed to feel that I was free to participate in the experience, not bullied into getting it done by people or circumstances. That night I thought long and hard about what could happen. The next day I worked through all the variables, old and new and processed what the day might look like. I thought about the transportation to the new lodge, but close I would wear the bus ride to the bridge getting a bridge pass at customs to Zimba's a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia paying for the jump and finally. Finally getting the gear on and everything involved in the jump itself the sights, the smells feel the wind on my skin, feeling the harness, my heart rate that thought process took the better part of an hour before falling asleep, and in our lying in bed, the following morning that mental preparation made the difference the calmness about me that morning, and thankfully Michelle did not bring up the jump. Indeed. Our understanding of my need to decide on my own terms may have made the difference.

Reynoso one Marino's Owen sweet was everything was disconnected amongst the world kitchen of the not so we put everything together the Mauri the the hood section and the past three so and we move think and in place of the whole kitchen and now there is the chef's table so you can see everything moved and it was a big staff in fact so two months I think normally this kind of things should have been done inform- once but there are fifty to work on this refurbishment all day long and some night and during the weekend and we succeeded to do it in a short damn so what change in fact the dining room is a complete new dining room my icing you cannot recognize the other one you can and now we cannot even remember what what was the other one so the design up. Yovich is a new designer is that's not the one worked on the tawdry even years ago so is a French designer and we worked very closely together to bring a lot of elegance and immunity to this room so so that's what we try to do and and I can say that it's a completely new design ambiance and the yeah very different to each extent does the food change then whatever food after the I have my feelings of your food and that you cannot change from I started thirty years ago and and it will be like that all along my my chef life I will say and the philosophy is all about the product I am chef who always say that the story join the plate is not the chef but the product so I'm always think being a lot of attention to the product choose and I cook what I asked to.

Andy Euler explains Fedex is facing a double whammy whammy number one a trade war full of tariffs trees afford teaches business at Dartmouth. It's depressing demand for Fedex's services to ship that product in an earnings call on Tuesday Fedex. CEO Fred Smith said trade disputes beauts began to impact manufacturers in Europe and Asia in two thousand eighteen and he said that lowered demand for international shipping Dale Rogers teaches supply chain management at Arizona State University. He says Fedex is also feeling some pain due to an anti globalization movement around the world.

Helene Lean Becker covers transportation for Cowan Company.

Biden leads Trump in hypothetical matchup, poll shows
"McAuliffe someone put up some polls here in the from from fox news in general election match ups here and it Joe Biden ten points and then in descending order their Sanders warning Harris in check out the president's numbers by way they don't budge they really don't budge thirty nine to forty two is that range whether it's buying Sanders Warner I tell you a lot obviously the range of the democratic side is a much wider one goes from fourty for Harris to forty nine for fighting but the big picture here Terry is that Joe Biden standing basically is back to exactly what was the day before the first debate right why is that most people think he has the best shot of beating Donald Trump and that is the biggest issue is we go for Democrats want to be taught and they're all going to call us he has to have a good debate it wasn't as strong as performance at the first debate he has to show that he's the one that can be on stage when Donald Trump spiritually in all the insults Adam and he can punch back twice as hard how how devastating with a second sort of performance that that low worries I'm out of time all that stuff how how much without her scandals would hurt I mean because I think there's a lot of expectations on this debate I don't want this debate all about me the past what happened forty years ago he's got a provision out where we go from here in fact I would say check for all the candidates I want to hear a little bit more on K. twelve on infrastructure and cybersecurity workforce development we can as Democrats spend all our time revealing it in the past we've got to go forward and Biden has to show he can lead taking this country for you know Helene it's July of nineteen and yet there's only five candidates of the twenty that feel like have already made it to the next round whatever the next round is is going to be fifteen desperados yeah they're going to it's that that'll be a free fall it'll be interesting to see just how much they come in and who they target whether they these these people the people who were polling yeah yeah whether they they go after after Biden or whether they go after Elizabeth Warren who is you know the presumed other big big person on the on the ticket it's funny that we're not talking about Bernie Sanders as much as it was going on there Sanders Elizabeth Warren will have their own night they basically no offense to the other eight but that will be seen as the phone is off does Bernie Sanders attack Elizabeth Warren and if it does how does he do it does it yeah we know she's not she doesn't need to this is and in this it it's that you mention this is really interesting because if you think about who's been debating since the debate and mixing it up that's a good way pride and Bakir Heris Sanders who would win who's not in this mix one she's a very good job staying above the fray she's all about the policy she is all about the issues staying out of it let it be seen as a food fight all of them which is a great place to be if you're caught another brother actually not being with my absolute that's interesting we're sorry the one candidate I think may not attack Biden's come on hers this time right well I mean she had a great now the last time I which you mess it up by the deadline not having you want to run the same place twice because they might stop at the second I was responsible what's notable about obviously is just you think nothing happened the last two months but even though that speaks the status I think still there's fluidity in this race and someone by the time there is snow on the ground in Iowa will catch fire maybe it's one of the top tier candidates now maybe someone would discount I was just going to say is there anybody outside of the fight feels like we're sorry sitting on a Biden Harris worn Sanders good a judge and then everybody else there is there anybody we should we should not be overlooking other than those five at this point I always argue he should pay tens of the governors I have not had a they get others had not gotten track they have it in their seat owns that you're only billed rose the cleanings we create jobs if the balanced budgets no offense to senators and Congress folks they get to talk all day that was gonna live every single day the problem is they don't have exposure you have about our hearing or capital hearing more hearing the senators and congressmen they they referred to tens of millions of people when I was governor of people when I you're not calling me chopped asking me about you know my thoughts on I sixty six and my work we were talking about national party leader stuff some of your right just as he gets an exposure and it's hard but you know they're the ones that actually you know the CEOs listen there's a lot of debates coming up and I was the chairman I started these debates in two thousand three we didn't have before I started the party debate to give everybody a shot of getting on a stage to make your case and they're all televised and so someone could break out there could be a breakout moment I wanna go head but there was a break out movie moment for doing Castro the last debate and we haven't heard anything about common sense I mean that you you just all the reason why the governors are not going to be breaking I hope is that you look at you know at a big break out in terms of fundraising yeah you know it's really counted by just one with him whether because people look at south and they're like come and press the present United States you know I don't know we didn't even talk about him he's in the Warren Sanders night I'll be curious to see if he can make an impression outside
