"herman" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Think for this Herman? Is that like yelling fire in a crowded theater? In some respects, I do think so. I think there are two culprits, right? The equity markets was telling you a story. You're talking about equity analysts telling stories. The market was telling a story about the viability of the bank and that story was being taken in real time from these venture capital firms. And they decided to pull their funding, which exacerbated the issue. So it goes hand in hand and really that's the end of the day what happened. So Arnold from a credit perspective, what are you and your colleagues looking at right now? What's your is your analysis different today than it was a week ago? I mean, are you looking for, oh boy, where's the next shoe to drop? Yeah, no. So I think the risk is still with these some of these regional banks that they've been halted today, right? And then I think the ports of storms, I think, are these big U.S. banks, which have actually some may argue been over regulated, right? And they've been forced to hold a lot more capital. They've been horse to hold a lot more liquidity. And then from the county standpoint, on their big available for sale bomb portfolios, those unrealized losses flow through to capital, right? So they're kind of living with the losses that we see or at least part of their portfolio. They have to live with that as opposed to some of these regionals below 700 billion in assets. They can kind of pretend like, oh, that never really happened. Unless they're forced to, for now. Kind of sell. Yeah, so that's no road today. In order to kind of cure the SVP jitters, I think we need one kind of a broader kind of deposit guarantee for all these uninsured deposits for at least like a year. And during the financial crisis in 2008, that's what we got. We got this TL GP and part of that was the FDIC guaranteeing non-interest bearing deposits at U.S. banks. So maybe something well now, they've all come out in essentially guaranteed everything for everyone. Well, I mean, they got the guarantees for the failed banks after they failed. And a receiver shit, but I'm saying kind of more of a signaling it. But I think what is the reason for these bank stocks that are falling today? Who knows how much of the deposits are leaving or whatnot? I think we saw a press release for FRC. It's like, oh, we're not seeing that much, but things can move, right? It's kind of like these bank runs like 24 hours, right? It used to be, you had to go to the branch during the open hours and you line up and this and that. So you had more time, but now you can just do it all digitally. And does that change you think Herman? What kind of regulatory changes do you expect? It's hard to say that the positives can't take their money out when they want as they please in this DeJoy age. You're going to have to have tougher regulations on liquidity. They're going to have to have tougher regulations on capital. Interesting. All right guys, thank you so much again. We are so fortunate to have a couple of experts here right in House

Herman Cain; A Black Success Story
"You know, someone that I feel like, and I wish would have been a president, Herman Cain. I met Herman Cain on a few occasions. Before he died, I was at an event where Herman Cain, we were riding in a car together, and the level of humility that Herman came presented in a car full of youngsters, literally he was sitting in the back seat, I was in the backseat across from him, but he wasn't talking a lot. And he said, you know what? I can learn a lot from you, young guys. Paraphrasing what he said. And he said, I like to just listen and learn. I don't need to talk all the time. And he the smartest man in the truck, by far. And Herman Cain was a very successful man. And it's funny because why can't we use his story as a black success story? He never believed in all of that crazy stuff about victimhood. Herman Cain dominated every industry he was in very successful black men financially. Educationally, I mean, you go down at least, Herman Cain was an excellent example. Of not letting anybody hold you back. And I remember he had made mention in his testimony that he was working on some job I can't remember which companies working for. But it was him and another kid. There were extremely successful, both equally successful. They were both top competitive people. And there was one kid was white and it was him. And he said that they had given the right kid raises. But he didn't get a raise. And they were top of the company both in the neck and neck. So he said he went to his supervisor and said, hey, man, why is so and so getting a degree? I mean, getting racist and I'm not. And he said, hey, just so you know, he has a degree. And you don't have a degree. That's why. And he said he didn't cry and do all that. He said he went out and got a master's degree. And then he ended up he ended up being a division over that other kid. So he didn't complain about it. He went out and did something about it. He didn't say, oh, that's racist. He went out and performed,

The Left Reacts to the Death of Lynette 'Diamond' Hardaway
"Just so you know who the left is. The type of people that we're dealing with and this isn't all Democrats. This isn't this isn't all liberals, but it is certainly the left and some of the nastiness that goes on on Twitter that you'll see if you go on to Twitter. But this is what they, some of them wrote of diamond of diamond and silk. Rest in peace diamond conservatives just lost one of the few black people. They can use to pretend they aren't racist. This from somebody by the name of human ghosts that goes at Apollo in age X Apollo age X so this person obviously doesn't know that they support the party of the KKK and the anti civil rights party. Also the party of Barack Obama who made sure that talented young black students were not able to go to the school that his daughters went to or her daughter went to. Another one, rest in peace, diamond, the newest member of the Herman Cain club. Wow, that's really nice because Herman Cain died as well. He contracted COVID and died of COVID. So that was from Rick havoc at Rick RI K H a VIC. Rick havoc, such a nice guy. I hope they didn't get the jab and I hope they don't end up dying of a blood clot. Anyway, rest in peace, diamond, her real name for all of the conservative white folks who only know her as a paid menstrual show gimmick. She sold herself as is Anita lunette Hardaway. I bet you Trump and most of the right can't even tell you which one was diamond and which one is silk. Here's another one. No vaccine, no sympathy, mega trash. This is from polite southern hell. At. Two O's at the end. Wow.

Razorfist and Sebastian Discuss MAGA Movement Influencers
"Back with razor fest. Here's the man behind the era holic channel on YouTube. Follow him his political analyses are really, you've got to be going to have a tough stomach. You've got to be maned of stern stuff for some of the language. He uses and the speed. He's like, he's like a masculine version of that little guy. What's his name Shapiro? He's fast. He's as fast as Shapiro, but he's actually got some testosterone. Sorry, Ben. And then analysis is just good. It is just on the money. Oh, you were talking about how very important point you made again and again and again. That America first and maga is not for all the left would wish it to be a cult of personality. It's actually a global figure with a global brand picking up the leftover debris of the Tea Party, the Buchanan movement, a goat, the original gold water, and then you mention somebody else. Who else would you put into that category? I think Herman Cain seized some of that in 2012. I really do, and I know, what are you going to understand? Trump was kind of a fan of Herman Cain as well. Herman Cain was well on track to being the FrontRunner in 2012. And then they threw a bunch of those astroturfed allegations the same kind that they tried to fire Trump's way. And but he stood and fought. He got on his hind legs and he fought. I think Herman Cain, by the way, was inclined to fight those, but he was thinking more of his family and his wife at the time. Right. As I understand it. And he was like, okay, my family doesn't need this nonsense. And so he ended his campaign. But contrary to what people think he did actually oppose and ultimately disprove those allegations years later.

Mike Gallagher Apologizes for Mocking John Fetterman's Condition
"Made fun of him. And I poked fun at his physical condition and I really feel crappy about it because that's wrong. Like I said to you for weeks and weeks and months and months, everybody feels sorry for a guy who suffered a massive stroke. And all that put that he went through and his family went through. And today I got carried away and made some noises and stuff and kind of made fun of him. And that's absolutely wrong. I don't feel any less sorry for him today than I did prior to the election. It doesn't mean I'm in shock that a guy in his condition and especially with his radical ideology could get elected to the U.S. Senate, Pennsylvania voters are completely deranged who voted for him. But having said all of that, I should not make fun of him or make noises and pretend that he's Herman Munster and all of that. That's wrong. And that's not who I am, and I feel kind of I just got carried away. And I'm sorry. I really am. I'm sorry that I went there.
The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
The Fetterman Inflection
"Inflection, the fetterman inflection, the fat Herman inflection. I would use a hashtag with that. I have been using a hashtag with that. Because it occurred to me as I prepared for special report last night, over with Bret baier and I'm always honored to work with Brett, but especially when Britt Hume and marala center there. That's like the two giants of the special report panel are Brit human moralizing. And when the Giants come out, I like to be there like to listen to them or I had a nice chat was not in the green room Brett was down in Georgia. And it just settled into me that the despair among Democrats is deep why? Why? One senator collapsing in Pennsylvania. And John fetterman's campaign has collapsed. It's over. Bounced the rubble. It's not, and you look at the numbers this morning and it crossed the map. I mean, from east to west and north to south from Wisconsin, to Georgia. Nothing is working for the Democrats. Everything is going downhill. And I'm going to talk with Don bulldog this morning. And New Hampshire, and I covered New Hampshire standby in New Hampshire. I'm talking about Adam laxalt from Nevada at the bottom of this hour. Early morning in Nevada means people are going home from the shift, working in the entertainment business, paying their $7 gallon gas because of Joe Biden. And the federman inflection is the moment when after that debate, people say not only. Boy, he, incoherent, and a progressive is trying to get out his lines. He'd been coached to say I'm for fracking, and everyone knows he's not. He'd been coached to say, I'm hard on crime, and everyone knows he's not. He's been coached to say everybody understands why he chased a black kid with a gun and put a gun in his chest and everyone doesn't understand. And he can't say what he's been coached to say, but you know what the Democrats knew or the key messages by what they focused on trying to coach John fetterman to say and he couldn't. And the inflection comes when the whole country. And by the way, they had a huge audience. It's the only thing that people talked about yesterday is how awful that was. The panic that spread among Democrats, every like the 5 stages of Greek,

"I want to sit in this bad boy. I want to see what makes it different from the higher end models. And kind of get a feel for what is this like a chair that's more geared towards gamers at a price point because like you mentioned Paul the one, the higher tier ones are re skins of existing Herman Miller chairs that look gamer esque. But I'm wondering what functionality this one offers that could be any different, but it looks really interesting. Yeah, it's not clear there's any functionality other than just being ergonomic. I wonder if we end up seeing a $500 price point in this Herman Miller range, which would be very un Herman Miller like, right? That's just not Herman Miller's territory. This is very, very high end furniture. As we're creeping to like a $1000, I get it, it's still a lot of money for a chair. But in the Herman Miller world, this is not a lot of money. This is just not an expensive chair anymore in that world. And so it'll be interesting to see how far down market they move with this collaboration and how far away it gets from sort of being a Herman Miller product and more just like a Logitech plasticky product. Stewart says, I feel like we're cheating on Jeff by talking chairs without him in the room. Stewart, I love that comment, comment of the day. Everyone knows this is Jeff's favorite part of the show and he is going to be really upset by the way Jeff also just had a baby. So everyone's going to he's going to be very upset that he missed out on the chair with you. Which is his favorite favorite part of the show. Christian says one day my credit card points will allow me to get this or wait for the $500 chair Chris because I suspect it is coming, I feel it. And Stewart says, wow, that spin. Yeah, I've never, I don't think I've ever just spun all of these chair reviews. The chair launch videos, they always do the 360 spin in the chair, Jimmy. I've never, I don't know if you've ever said that your desk and just 360 for the fun of it, not since I was like 5. And that's as agree with Jimmy designs are important, but is the chair comfortable. How does it innovate sitting in a chair and playing video games?

"Your host, Priya Rao, and here with me today is Matthew Herman. One of the cofounders of fragrance brand voicemails. Hi, Matthew, how are you? I'm so well. Thanks, bria, how are you? I'm good. Dog days of summer we're about to head up for Labor Day and you have so much going on in September. Did you get any time off this summer? I know, I know. Well, right now we are full speed ahead and planning and executing some really exciting launches. But yes, I got a little bit of time off this summer. I went to Mexico for a couple of days, but yeah, it's been lovely. I mean, I'm in Los Angeles, so we're close to the ocean. Always summer in LA, right? Exactly. Matthew, before we kind of get started about what's going on in September, which is a lot, you know, from Sephora to some really cool collaborations. I would love to hear a little bit about yours and David's founder story because, you know, it seems like you were one of the first fragrance brands that cool indie fragrance brands that kind of came out of the market and has gotten so much attention in such a short amount of time. But you both of you weren't in beauty prior to this, correct? No, no. Both me and David kian are other cofounder, both come from fashion background. So I went to school at central saint Martins in London and then I worked in London for a little bit. I worked in New York at some more high end runway, designers, and then I moved out to LA to work for nasty gal, which was my first fashion job. And in LA I met David and we early on in meeting just kind of we're thinking a lot about like, what are the products that really speak to us? And somehow candles jumped out, but we were talking about home and fashion and everything and just feeling like there wasn't necessarily a brand or a store that had all the things that we wanted, but at the price that we wanted to pay for them. And having come from like, you know, an education that was really focused on like high concept, high design, and then kind of carrying that through the beginning part of my professional life. When I got to nasty gal, it was really exciting because it was the first kind of larger fast fashion job where no one ever asked you to skimp on design or skimp on concept. It was just like whole hog a craziest stuff that you can imagine, but done for a mass audience. And I really fell in love with this idea of being able to not skimp on concept, not skimp on design. But still offer something that felt like elevated, but keeping within a price point and a price and margin structure that could still deliver something at a really great price.

The Truth Behind the Cancellation of 'AJ After Hours'
"Turns out Mindy Herman was scared should have talked shows more than we knew because of that because of the tragedy of the Magic Johnson show. Magic was just bad on TV. It took him years to learn how to talk on TV. He wasn't ready then as a result, it all fell back on many of the blowback hit her hard. So she was petrified of talk shows, but she would never say that to our face. And I knew that things were bad because right before the talk show aired the advertising budget was cut in half. One minute on being in every magazine and newspaper in America, I'm on buses in Los Angeles by face, mildly faced with AJ after hours. I'm everywhere. The last two weeks before the show, I'm nowhere to be found. And the show was gonna run at midnight, then I went to one 30, then 2 o'clock in the morning. Who the fuck's up? The shelves from milkmen and vampires. Who's gonna watch your show with that hour, right? As my father would say, whores and milk men are up at that hour. So I was, I was doomed. It was doomed, right? And that cancellation when I finally got the word, I'm at the hotel. I've told you this story before and gave me for a minute. At the time, my assistant was my girlfriend and she was with me the whole way. And as we're getting ready for the 5th taping, Chris Rock was on that night, some good guess. She gets a phone call. Oh, it's John. John riber. Hold on. John says don't come downtown. It wouldn't mean don't come down. I'm going to tape the show. No, John says there's no shelter tonight. I go, happy to not be a shell tonight. Chris Rock's here. We're doing a show. No. So I got on the phone, John tells me, and he was crushed. It wasn't his call, but he said, we're not going to pull the show. Mindy wants to pull

AJ Has a Reunion
"Not much gossip except to say that Andrea is in town and we took, we took tootsie to rails the other night. And I thought, this would be great. I haven't seen Johnny roast beef is the frontman at Rao's. You guys know Johnny roast beef is a great character actor, of course he's the guy in Goodfellas who buys the Cadillac too soon after the robbery and didn't really tell him to take it back, take it back, Jimmy, Jimmy. It's under my wife's name. Take it back. He's that guy. I hadn't seen Johnny for a long time, so we show up the other night. And it was like a little reunion. Because it wasn't more than a day that our good buddy Pauly Herman had died. The guy who was the front man for ago in Los Angeles as Johnny's the frontman for rails. And I was with I saw all the guys, a lot of guys that were once the rails, guys. I mean, the ago guys. I saw Joe cortese. It was a great actor and a great writer too. Peter Dobson, who you may know of from several things he's done, including a movie many years ago called sing. Peter used to date my ex-girlfriend, Vanessa, and there was a time we were kind of like rivals because we were young and stupid. But every time I see Peter, it's nothing but love. In fact, he was with me on the last night that I go was in business. And he was with me when I stole the chair that Pauly sits in or sat in and we reminisced about that. I was with Nick very long ago who wrote the Oscar winning movie green book all about his father. And I didn't know he was a fan of mine. I'd ever met Nick. And when Johnny roast beast beef brought me to that table, it was remarkable how these guys stood up and wanted to talk to me and know me. In fact, one guy who I can't remember his name, he said to me, yeah, I tell everybody, you told me that you told everybody that Dan Rather fucked Hillary Clinton. I said, so you listen to my show, he goes, I never miss your show. I forget the guy's name. But he couldn't wait to tell that story to the whole table. And then when he told that story, the whole table went bananas.

Bruce Willis's Cognitive Decline Has Finally Silenced Him
"Well, the bad way to start the weekend is to talk about Bruce Willis's cognitive decline, which is really sad. The actor's family shared the news on Instagram the other day. They wrote alongside a photo of Bruce and they said to Bruce's amazing supporters as a family, we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health, I mean, it just said that they're going to say this. It's it. But I know what they're doing. And this can't be easy for a family to say that, especially since Bruce has been the breadwinner, not only for Demi and her kids, but his younger wife was beautiful and then two kids, it's a sad thing. She said thing to say the least and it hit me the other day and because this cognitive decline is aphasia that he's suffering from it just happened on the same day as my buddy Pauly Herman died and you know if you know anything about those two guys like I mentioned maybe you guys didn't hear this on Patreon but Pauly Herman used to run a club on the upper west side of New York City and Bruce Willis was the bartender before he was known. And the fact that both of them on the same day basically got silenced, it's very scary for a guy like me. It's scary for anybody because it just shows you how quick life goes and how quickly it can turn. And I can only wish Bruce some sort of turn around,

"I don't know what to do. Let me seek someone else's counsel. And if someone says to you, you know, we just had hot cocoa this afternoon, and we had ice cream. Maybe you're not that hungry. Maybe you should just get the salad. And all of a sudden, the salad makes sense to you and you would have never thought about it in terms of what you had just eaten. All of a sudden, multiple perspectives can help you make your own decision. And the music that's to my ears to this day, I've been doing this for 20 years, is when I overhear someone say in the midst of one of my classes or talking about the book they say, you know, I would have never thought of that. I would have never thought of that. Imagine that and quite selfishly just getting other perspectives, even if you make the same decision that you would have initially, you've consulted other people. You already have a broader vision in making the decision. Wonderful, you have a triangulation of information is so so viable. Yes. And we forget about that. You know what? Again, my high school principles used to say, it's not all about you. Yeah, oftentimes it's not about you at all. And that's really humbling when I tell people, it's not about you at all. So what's the best way to kind of a system to define a problem and set some parameters before approaching it? I think working backwards, you know, we talk it out. And you think about all the things that go into the problem. And I put it to the artist's process. The prep, the draft and the exhibit. How do you prep to make a painting? You gather all your materials, you think about the concept. You don't just do it overnight. You decide what materials you want to use. You want you decide what materials are best go to express what you want to express..

"It's really very important. That doesn't mean that you can't try new things. You know, people say, well, I hate all things with papaya, okay? Fine. You can hate things with papaya. But when you go to Thai restaurant and they serve papaya salad with an underwrite papaya in a way that you've never tasted it before, just leave the door open. There's always room to go back and say, you know what? I hate papaya. But you can try something new. So I think that you're dislikes can lay down parameters for you and it's very important. But, you know, they should be those parameters should not be drawn in stone. So earlier you were talking about pattern recognition and the value of that and that does kind of safeguard us from getting too caught up in our assumptions about things and kind of believing that the narrative story in our mind is quote unquote reality and the truth at all times and will give us a broader perspective of what's going on. What's a good method for people to begin to recognize their assumptions? I think it sounds easy to say, but, you know, we act on our assumptions all the time. And what I tell people is I'm giving you permission. I'm not telling you that you have to change your assumptions. All I want to do is make you aware of them. That's all I can do. And once you're aware of them, and you start thinking, it's like things that come onto your windshield in the car. You can't look away from them. And so if you start to be aware of one of your assumptions and then start asking yourself, you know, am I making this decision based on an assumption? The example I'll give you is I hang two portraits in my book and in the class, one is of George Washington and one is Abraham Lincoln. And I say, well, none of you in the room are none of you readers have ever lived under the administration of these two men..

You kept telling me you were going to take me out of my box, take me out of my box. He said, you took me so far out of my box. I know what to look for now that I go back in. Wonderful. And that's really all I aspire to is to take people out so when they go back in, they're going to see things differently. Yeah, and I don't think that that's a platitude that you shared at all. I think that's actually wisdom. You know, it's the things feel uncomfortable and those type of spaces because you're literally you don't have the brain slots to take in the information. So it's kind of like the same feeling one would get from being scared of the dark. It's like, well, it's because it's the unknown. It's that, but it's just a perceptual subjective understanding of what is known. And once you get in you play in that threshold, which is kind of like the middle of the street, you can actually see what's going on in someone else's yard. But it's dangerous to play in the street. Dangerous, but the rewards are pretty cool because you don't get to go there very often. That's right. That's right. I've mentioned this story probably a handful of times on the podcast, but I'm going to tell you again just because I think you would really appreciate it. Something I loved, I heard David Bowie say one time was that he knew he was innovating. And he always this feeling was really important to him is that whenever he was working on a new project a new record or whatever, that he wanted to feel specific way and when he felt this way, he knew he was really getting some more new. And he described it as if you walked from the beach into the water and he walked out just far enough that your feet were barely barely touching the ground and the water was kind of moving you a little bit. You know, that feeling of like, I have a toe tap in the ground, but I'm uncomfortable because I'm kind of being controlled by the ocean. He's like, that's the feeling I always look for. And I've always loved that. You don't know me at all, but I can't believe you just touched on this. My happiest place in the whole world is to be in the ocean. Just past where the waves break..

"We walk the dog. We take kids to school, we go out for coffee and a croissant, whatever we do. And what I ask people to do is every day that you begin your routine again. Seek out something you didn't notice the day before. Seek out something you didn't see the day before. And make a mental note of it. And if you do it every day, it becomes almost a habit that you start looking for things that are not only that aren't obvious, but that you may have missed before. And what it does is it trains your brain to think to see in another way and I believe that not only does it augment your self awareness, oh, I never noticed that before. I never realized that. I never knew that I like that. And then when you need those skills to problem solve or deal with a difficult situation, you have them at the ready. And the example that I'll give you is I wrote a short piece when I came back from Paris. It was very sad to me that everybody stopped kissing in Paris. You know, everyone kisses. Both cheeks, if they really know you, they kiss three times, and everybody stopped kissing. And when I was standing in front of Christoph's arc, for some reason, it inspired people to kiss again. They were laughing and they were kissing each other and it's as if in his posthumous spirit. He gave people permission to kiss. And as I was walking this morning, to go get a cup of coffee, there's a little preschool right near my apartment. And I noticed COVID or no COVID, everybody was they were kissing their children goodbye. Even with the masks, they were all kissing, and I just never noticed that before. But having seen this in Paris, I brought it home with me and I saw these parents letting their kids go and kissing them goodbye..

"And I think it would be really, really effective for homicide detectives to come to the art museum. And you can imagine that went over like a lead balloon. Yeah. And so they transferred me 7 times and I landed with a deputy commissioner who had vision and forethought. And he said to me, miss Herman, if this is so visual, why are we talking on the phone? Why aren't we face to face in front of the paintings? And so he came with his colleagues in 6 months later, every newly promoted captain in New York had to take this class. Wow, that's amazing. That's amazing. Now, you know, one of the things that you, of course, touch on in your new book is just the general erosion of people's problem solving skills. What do you think is causing that? I think there are multiple causes. I think Siri is a big problem. I think Google is a big problem. You know, I'm not saying that those aren't useful things, but what it does when we type in a question to Google, or we look something up, it diminishes our own ability to think critically about all the nuances of the situation where in Google doesn't know where we are. I mean, it may know where we are physically, but it doesn't know what's happening in our brain. So by typing something into Google, you're sort of all those nuances and details and things that should be factoring into your problem solving are deadened. And so I think technology while it certainly adds to our problem solving ability on some level, it also dampens it. And I think that we need to strike a balance between how we use technology and how we continue to develop our critical thinking skills because as we've all seen problems aren't going to go away. And, you know, whenever we've had blackouts or a loss of power or lose your phone, people panic, and you still have to be able to solve problems when that happens..

"Book, by the way. Thank you. Yeah, it's a really brilliant concept. Thank you. I have to tell you writing a book is like having a child, you know, you put something out there and you hope it'll do some good in the world. But I'm going through contractions right now. You know, they want to start it. So it's always nice to hear from some of the first readers because I'm you know, I'm so deep in the weeds with the book. It's really lovely to hear when somebody from the outside has read it. Good, good. I'm glad that you feel that, you know, I know that feeling that you're talking about that weird vulnerability so well, just releasing things, you know, a lot of my life. And it's an interesting process. I think since you're someone who has such a astute understanding of art and the creative process, get this, I always feel like creating the thing, of course, is this manifestation of your own subjective perception, and that's what art is is saying the world in a different way. And then somehow taking a snapshot of your subjective reality and communicating it through a medium so that others can see the thing. That they couldn't see, right? That's a perfect description that that's a really, really good description because it's something that's so ingrained in you and so subjective and you want others to experience it. Totally, totally. But in that, comes that's a part of your capital as self your ego that you're sharing and when it's still within you, it's protected and it's safe, but the second you put that into the object or the medium, and it becomes detached in its own thing, then you like pushing it into the forest. And it's all on its own. And it's on its own and you can't nurture it anymore and I'm going to say something and I hope this doesn't sound pretentious. I just came back from Paris and the reason I went to Paris is because I wrote about Christo in the book, and he died this past year and his last design, the one that he designed and worked on was going to go up in Paris. He wrapped the Arc de Triomphe for I should say, his studio wrapped the Arc de Triomphe. And it was his last work and I wanted to see it with my own eyes. So I went to Paris to see it. And I was thinking about what you just said. Here is Christo's last cumulative, his big last masterpiece on the Arctic triumph and he wasn't there to see it. But I stood for hours and watched other people engage with it. And it was just an experience I will never forget. It was joyous. And I thought somehow the spirit has to read him that he knows what he has created here. Yeah, that's beautiful. He went and saw that. I've always found drunkards work really fast. I think one of the most fun stories that's in my mind about that is surely you're familiar with ray Johnson. Sure. Story of Jiang Christo and ray Johnson, of course, being kind of like, I don't know, playing with each other a little bit, you know? And the little competition, a little bit of good fun. And so I think that I believe that ray wanted one of Christo's packages when he was doing those packages back in the 70s. And they were going back and forth, talking about buying one, trading art and so on and so on and so on. So finally, kreese just said, okay, I'm going to send you one, and he sent it over. So ray was hanging out in his department, he got a box, a package was delivered. He opened it up and there's note inside and said, you just ruined.

Dr Michael Guillen: Science Shows That Seeing Is Not Believing
"That's what we're talking about right now with dr michael gillen. The book is believing is seeing. So you're saying that we we meaning you and others were observing. The spin of certain galaxies ended implied that there was a lot more matter and mass. Then we could see and so what we infer from that observation so we inferred that there must be some things some substance within that galaxy that is causing it to spin so fast that we can't see it's an invisible form of stuff and that's all we called it. When i was a grad student but then as i in the years afterwards we came to call it dark matter. So that's what we call the missing mass that. Where is this mass. That's causing the galaxy galaxy to spin so fast and then beyond that we discovered that the universe is actually not only expanding but it's accelerating out words. That was huge. And i actually covered that when i was at. Abc news because a friend of mine at harvard was involved in that discovery. And we call that dark matter the bottom line just just to come back to the point i was making is that when i learned as a young scientists that most of the universe is invisible and we now believe ninety five percent of the observable universe is invisible to us. I could no longer live by the motto. Seeing is believing because here was science now demanding that i believe in a universe most of which i could not see so i had to ditch. Seeing is believing in that launched me on a very long. Herman has like journey you know. Tormented intellectual sequel has like journey. I literally make fun of. Herman has in the introduction to my new book is areas in bed. I'm not even joking. I'm going to send you a copy when we get off the air. I gotta send you a copy. But so what you're saying. I really you know. I i want to be serious and let the audience know that science or let's say materialists people who are scientistic who insist. There's no such thing as anything except what we can detect with our five senses anything beyond the realm of quote unquote science cannot exist. They make this statement now. That is a statement of faith. It's preposterous but you're telling me oh by the way even science contradicts that idea. Because you're saying there is a ton of matter we can infer the existence of it but we can't see it and so that right there causes you to think like well. Maybe we're getting some of this
Why Offices Have Cubicles
"A couple of years ago. I got really interested in cubicles. Probably because i was spending way too much time in mind and those beige fabric covered walls. Were really getting to me. Giving me existential. Angst you know like in the movie office space. We don't have a lot of time on this earth we weren't meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit and little cubicle staring at computer screens all day filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements. I wanted to find out how these little boxes got so popular. How did they take over office. Buildings around the world. And i found this amazing infomerrcial from the nineteen sixties. That touted the benefits of a whole new way to build workspaces. You and i are today. Living and industry's finest hour. An age of hurry. An era of efficiency period of productivity the likes of which the world has never seen and super fast smart effective age era.

Today's changing functions an instant flexible office facility the comparative in parallel the surging turbulent business life. It serves your business changing constantly. Your office should change with it. So the cubicle was born as a sleek looking shape shifting office space with hinged walls designed to create either small spaces or to open up wide for group meetings. The new buzz phrase back then was knowledge. Work and cubicles were supposed to facilitate this free flow of ideas and

The History of Experimental Research in Psychology
"Psychology has been an important topic of study for centuries the ancient greeks and egyptians had their schools of thought on it as did the people in ancient india and china. it wasn't until the nineteenth century. Though when psychological research turned from the philosophical to the experimental german psychologist gustave thickener started testing human brains response to various stimuli around the eighteen thirties from their experts. Such as herman ebbing house went on to study other functions of the mind from memory to introspection to classical conditioning psychology became a bustling industry of experimentation. Eventually scientists didn't just want to learn the limits of the brain. They wanted to understand what made people tick. Why were some individuals able to say no while others were more closers. Stanley milgram of yale university tested this in his famous milgram experiment in nineteen sixty one. He invited participants to administer electric shocks to someone in another room. As the shocks increased in power the screams of the unknown party got louder and more intense until they stopped completely. But don't worry nobody died. The electric shocks weren't even real but the effects on the subjects pushing the buttons certainly were milgram wanted to test how far a person would go in following orders from an authority figure even if those orders involved hurting or even killing someone else. He based his experiment. On the actions of the nazis during world war two the stanford prison experiment of nineteen seventy-one took things further by placing college students in a simulated prison environment. The purpose was to study. How power affected one psychological states one group of students was given the title of guard while another subset was placed in the prisoner role. Three guards were pulled out of the experiment early after demonstrating what were described as genuine sadistic tendencies. The prisoners also suffered they were referred to by numbers rather than their names. They were stripped naked and sprayed with a hose in shorts. They were humiliated the two week experiment was terminated. After just six

One that is really significant for the shaping of medieval civilization and for drawing the boundaries of chris. But i think that's one of the aspects of this new has become unfashionable to talk about christendom but it was electable part of what made european history of made western civilization and the descendants of the vikings. Whether they're norman's or the reuss the vikings themselves become the standard bearers for that christendom against its adversaries whether it's islam or whether it's the pagan threats coming out of the eastern european tribes the slavic tribes as well. So they're integral part of european civilization both as adventures but also has great. Political leaders brewers and. We just can't leave that out when we think about what. The scandinavian legacy is history. Enter the shaping of our own world one last question which is about the power of structures to change things. If i remember correctly part of what made the normans so expansionist was that they had a very firm rule that the oldest son basically inherited the land. The second son went into the church and the younger sons. Were supposed to go out adventuring to places like sicily. Is that relatively accurate. That is roughly accurate within scandinavia itself. Usually land was subdivided. Among the sons was one of the ways to prevent some degree of competition for control over the farm or over the estates and the germanic tribes that came down from scandinavia tended to follow that customers. Well the problem is. Is that when you've got ten to twelve sons even if you divide land equally. That's a pretty small portion to make a living or build a family so yes that became the rule. That sounds like the famous. Don't feel family distinguish norman night bill. Twelve what are they gonna do. Well what they're gonna do is they're gonna take their swords and east to look for ways in which to make a living for themselves and build a new life for themselves and this is what the normans do. It's an inheritance of what the vikings themselves had done and there earlier time and becomes a trademark for the way in which. Toby called the norman conquests take place in the middle ages. There are always younger. Sons who are trained for warfare who understand that their prowess in arms is the key to financial as well as political power and then launch themselves out into the world in order to bring those skills to bear on the world.

Years jonathan's interview with gary herman's from curling zimbalist in belgium where are you from and what was it like growing up there was born in the town of about seventy thousand people cold derna which is just on the southeast premature roofer and and i think it's now actually one of the Not a suburb. One of the commune's. I guess you could take great transcript barrier so like i said. My my grandmother is english is raised kind of bilingually dutch and flemish abduction english. I mean yeah. It was a small town kind of thing on the edge of town and didn't really play sports until i was about twelve thirteen and never looked back. I played a lot of sports kind of like provincial level. Like tennis volleyball. This may be your second question. But i only got into curling that the back end of two thousand sixteen alaska so tell us a bit about that. What drew you into curling. Then yes so. I have a a golfing buddy like thirty plus years. And he's canadian but he's lived in belgium allude his life so We're actually in all of a long weekend. Somewhere with the family equals my wife All excited the bid a half his Lost carries phone number big opportunity and yanni look at his email when he so i looked at his email once we got back to the hotel and basically the question was okay well. Last year i went to the world seniors championship with a team. That team disbanded trying to get a new team together but the fourth guy that didn't work out because of the age limit. So wouldn't you join us Going to let bridged world senior san francisco next year so I called him. And i said well wayne i mean you. You gave me an initiation of like one hour. A couple of years ago and Haven't seen any is in so. I think you're scraping buffalo of the barrel there. No you're fine and we'll do you know a pretty intensive training that kind of stuff But then our current club they were getting up and running in there were some construction delays so we ended up joining a club in tilburg in the netherlands So yeah. By the time. I got less rich. I'd i'd have maybe like fifty hours of ice time And i i just barely managed not to embarrass myself but it was a it was a great experience him like i said i mean. I've done several sports Kinda like provincial level but yeah it was. It was really nice to go to like a world championship even even though it was seniors and half the flag ceremony and everything it was. It was great and haven't looked like sense. So what's the history of curling in belgium you've mentioned there's one dedicated ice facility. That was just built. We'll get into that in a bit. But was there any curling and belgian. Before that or i need to speak it. Have a peek at my notes. But yeah we. It actually started in Roughly around nineteen eighty five. And that's at the ice rink. Where the town. I grew up in but i really can't recall because i went ice skating and a little bit ice hockey when i was in high school so that was just prior to that and i can't recall seeing any curling rocks deborah. So yeah that's where a club kind of started up and then A proudly it petered out so between Ninety five and two thousand five there wasn't any value look. I don't think that club was associated with the wc. If i think it was i see at the time right. Yeah and then two thousand five. Apparently some guys got together. Dig the actually got the rocks from dot original earner club And they signed up a club again in maryland. Which is a town provincial. Town like halfway between antwerp and brussels So they got onto the ice rink. There shocks me a town called least exit. Mcclellan and yet they started up the metal incurring club there and then two thousand fourteen to additional club started up one against and one intern. Not which again is a provincial town. Like thirty cases of That's a little bit of history and i think yeah obviously. In the meantime with those street clubs they also They joined the w. cf yeah midst. two thousand. Ten's i guess maybe a little bit early and then we worked towards the dedicate isolated. So you've mentioned that you played an international championship even before there was dedicated. I so does. Belgium enter a lot of a lot of the w cf events they kind of enter all the events. Do they have an olympic program. What's what's the international aspect of belgium. Curling like we have a a pretty decent men's team. that's I have kind of been bouncing up. And down the euro bs and cs for quite a while and they really putting time. They got a guy from A longstanding curler from the netherlands. Coaching them for over a year. Now so they're they're they're pretty Focused and rain for this year is to take one of the top two spots in the seas and then You know get access to the beast and do well darren. They're also planning to play in pre-olympic qualified. That's going to happen so Yeah that's a pretty solid team. We used to have a a lady steam like five six years ago but all of those ladies stopped curling because of family commitments and stuff An you ladies team is only just starting up and they were planning to to play internationally one covert hit. So they've been on hold for a little while and then And then there's my team of course to the belgian senior so we've always been bouncing around rather more or less to middle of the pack On them in the ws scc competitions. And we're really aiming to be around ten spots the next time we get to play really looking forward to going to be seeing two thousand twenty and it was cancelled so Yeah figures that will have one next year. I would be a missed. Not to mention that we have a mixed team as well Not exactly up and comer speakers but they They played into anger in two thousand nineteen Sa- get some experience. The thing they were ballroom our tenth place But yeah they're got team is gonna keep going as well and and try and do as well as count and it's you know did already ambition to To rank really highly But oversee bills experience that we can fossil to the next generation for sure. And so how does this. How does curling into the sports culture in belgium. Are there other sports that are popular besides football. Obviously the football teams very good and lukaku. Very famous footballer but are there other activities. Curling competes with for participants. Yeah for sure you know. Football games or soccer for our american friends listeners. Cycling is also really bakery up Louis cycling success over the years but Yeah me lately. You see some other sports coming to the forefront i mean we've had some Ladies number one the pasta eight and tennis Are field hockey team. There i think currently world champion right And the lady statements Also top five. I think so Yeah there's some other sports that you could say are still a little bit nation belgium but we're definitely can have been punching above our weight there on the on the global scale for those when it comes to winter sports.

That'll spare stu brand and greg down the sadness we're having to play with me or against me for one year where we do have today in an interview that you did. You did it before. I woke up with with someone from the belgian curling federation. While i guess he's not he's he doesn't have a job with the belgian curling federation but he's a member of it in is also involved with the dedicated curling facility that was built in belgium. And we'll get to that in just a second but first we do have a couple pieces of curling news. One is from san francisco here in the united states. Our friends at san francisco bay. Curling club are very close to realizing their dream of having their own dedicated curling facility however they put out a video on youtube saying that they are a few thousand dollars shorts and they do have to come with that money before the end of july. It is today. We are recording this on july eighteenth. So they've got a little under a couple of weeks to come up with that and you can learn more about their capital campaign Over at dedicated ice dot com. But they they have the building. It looks like it's a good way finished. But they're they're short a few thousand bucks and they have to come up with it here pretty quick and they explain why In the video that they put on youtube as well elsewhere we did have the starving curling club in omaha reached out to us. We asked for bonds bill announcements so they sent them into us there. I spun spiel. They have a one day fund spiel on october thirtieth with two game guarantee and a costume contest. That's likely going to be mostly for people who are local to omaha Or if you've you're within driving range that might be a good one for you. But their main bondsteel. The irish open is march.

But i've played in that spiel before really really good people at x. arbin curling club in their bondsteel spiel has grown. Since i've played in it in it's a really fun time so i suggest that if you have the means to get to omaha go check out their spiel the rink which has like a lot of glasgow side or not like you can see. Yeah yeah look at that rink. They were not at that rink when i played there but yeah you have a really nice. You really nice view while you're playing even though you're on arena ice. It looks cool. Will on social media so jonathan. Who did you talk to from belgium. I talked to gary herman's who's a listened to the podcast And he's kind of mess just a few times. We figured we are trying to go around the world here right gotta slowly but surely we went australia week. And we've been a whole bunch of other places so we figured let's go to belgium and actually as long as the interview. I realized that belgium is probably the closest curling rink to the one. I played in a really by distance. I think i. I'm going to double check it but i think it's it's because it's about three hundred miles from tunbridge wells. The preston exempts is probably a bit a little bit less. Maybe the dutch may be closer than does the netherlands hemp have dedicated curling facility. Yes we should do. Another one's episode. You know dig dig into that. The lowland rivalries. Yeah school right next door next door. Yes they are mere. That's actually a cool facility because it's a three sheet in a building and because Ice skating like Like bong track ice skating. Yeah is really is really up. In the netherlands they actually have a giant oval rounded upstairs and then the rakers is downstairs in the middle of the oval. I guess it's a pretty cool facility and they've got like a large ice hockey rink also so i think that's the setup that they have in salt lake utah. I are bluff to reach out to our friends in salt lake. And see if i'm right there but i think that they took that olympic oval that they had for the two thousand two games and basically could put curling ice in the middle of it. But i'll have to check on that. I'm probably wrong. But what i found really interesting about your chat with gary from belgium is they are very focused. On first and foremost growing the grass roots aspect of the game in maintaining the social aspect of the game rather than putting money into high-performance because even though they have now a dedicated curling facility in belgium they would rather use it to introduce people to the sport and use it to take advantage of take advantage of the warm room and maintaining the social aspect rather than trying to trying to compete with the the rest of europe at in international in international curling. Yeah and i think the other note is they really see. Learned to carl's as a money spinner for the rank like like. He was pretty clear in the interview at. That's that's the primary majority of their income is that and they see it. Not i think. A lot of clubs see learned curls primarily as a membership recruitment tool. They see it as kind of a core part of their business that actually and we talked to the rink manager and in saudi and same thing than maybe most people don't wanna join curling but they may want to come in and give it a try once and so maybe what one mistake. I've seen a lot of kind of newer clubs make is they. They gave away the learn to curl for free hoping that will convert into membership. And actually maybe two percent. Three percent of your learn. Curlers will become members saw. I think some of cleverer clubs have figured out that. No what you do as you're charged at a reasonable price makes money use it as a bit of publicity and if you get some conversion out of it's great but primarily use it as a way to help fund the other activities. Then if they've spent twenty five thirty dollars to try curling they've got a little bit of skin in the game rather than just doing it for free. Yeah i think. I think that's important. I do think that curlers sometimes underpricing undervalue value the time of members of the volunteering. These kinds of things and under under price also You know these days. Twenty five bucks. Anyway i'm sure like an evening. Bowling would cost the same. Right wasn't bullying in asia as most other nights at would cost about that. So it's reasonable.

"Square. I'm Jeannie Herman and our guest is Maria Norris. Lem ova. She is the CEO and co founder of Sandberg. Nice to see you. Nice to see you. So Sanford let's just recap. What is it? You guys do so we help people date fragrances before marrying them. And it's basically a monthly subscription service where you passed $15 a month and you get a 30 day supply of the design of fragments of your choice delivered straight to your door. I I love because Concept. I will tell you that it is fabulous. Um, so people get these subscriptions. What I find interesting, though, is that, um people actually want to change their perfume so much because I'm one of those people. I find a signature scent that it's big as me. But that's changing, isn't it with millennials? Absolutely. One of my biggest my personal convictions that I had to overcome while building this business is not believe that everybody only wants a signature scent. I I was never one of those people I actually We have 15 fragrances at any given time. And now that I also have a sunbird subscription, I have way more than that. Um, but I had 50 even before we started Sunbird, And so I always thought I was the odd one out. Well, it turns out that especially millennials now Gen. Z are increasingly not loyal to one fragrance, so they prefer to have a collection and they think of signature is very different. They think of signature for the winter signature for the summer. Signature for work Life signature for workouts. Signature for travel. It A very, very different way of consuming the category, which is why smaller sizes make more sense now, instead of large fragrance bottle. Obviously, people still buy full sized bottles of fragrance put the very special standard. They're so in love with.
America's War on Drugs: 50 Years Later
"Carl grew up in miami in the seventies and eighties grew up in a predominantly black neighborhood. Would some would deem resource poor and he got a very clear message about drugs. People talked about drugs in a very same way as they talk about drugs. Now drugs are bad on do drugs. Drugs are the source of are suffering drugs. 'cause addiction drugs are the reason that people die prematurely plenty of people in his neighborhood drinker smoke cigarettes or we'd but there were drugs that seemed out of bounce wants people warned them about drugs like crack and heroin. It was nothing to see a public service announcement with someone like peewee. Herman this is crack. Rocco peewee. Herman would be talking to kids saying something about. Everybody wants to be cool. Hey you wanna be cool like me I don't do crack because doing crack is like putting a loaded gun in your mouth and pulling the trigger and that state in my mind for a long time. Some of my assumptions were that a drug like crack. Cocaine was so addictive one hit is all that was required for the user to become addicted. Everyone who smoked crack cocaine eventually became addicted and then about the people who use drugs. I thought they were horrible people. I thought that they were irresponsible. People i thought that they could only focus on getting another hit if their drug. It would take me a good fifteen years to start questioning the story that i was telling myself. Is it fair to say you were scared of drugs. Yeah it's fair to say that. I was absolutely scared of drugs. I believe those messages so much so i decided to study drugs And try and figure out how. I could help people who were addicted

Here’s the Latest on the Epic vs Apple Trial
"Of the high stakes courtroom battle between Apple and Fortnight maker Epic games, and this week it is apples turn to prove it is not an antitrust violator, with expectations that the tech giant will bring in its most powerful spokesperson, that is Tim Cook. To testify. Bloomberg. Mark Herman has the very latest. So mark, where are we with this trial? Yes. So we are in the probably final week of the trial. Today we've heard Phil Schiller, the former senior VP of marketing and now an Apple fellow in charge of the APP store testifying to Apple's business practices why the APP store operates the way it does. And its interactions with developers. And we've also gotten a few interesting stats about how the APP stores run that there are 280,000 games out of two million total APS and how much it costs Apple to run its annual developer conferences. So talk to us about the case that has been made so far. It sounds like you've repeatedly come out of these hearings. Feeling like epic hasn't really proven Its case. I mean, I'm not a lawyer or anything, but I've been listening into most of the trial on a daily basis, and I have simply not heard any compelling arguments or seriously compelling argument for how Apple is doing something not necessarily wrong. But how it's really hurting developers on all levels. You've heard Microsoft testify you've heard in video testify. I don't think epic has brought any smoking guns to the table about Apple, you know, purposely trying to cross smaller developers. Personally, I think you know, Apple's APP store fees are a bit too high for the year 2021. Given the economies of scale. Maybe 30% made sense where there were very few APS on the store. But now that 30% is generating nearly 20 billion profit per year and spread out across two million APS, you know that 30% is worth a lot more to Apple than it was way back in the day. So I think that needs to change. And even Phil Schiller echoed that when Apple launched its program to slice the fees for developers to generate under a million per year from 30% to 15%, Schiller said, he argued for the cuts be below 15%. So I think this is something that Apple recognizes in some respect, too. But regardless of opinions, regardless of how bad you know, epic thinks Apple behaves Is a contract at stake. And the first thing you need to know about the legal world is if you have a contract, and it's legitimate and all parties have signed it, and there's no contractual issues there. You know, it's pretty hard to argue with that piece of paper with signatures, and that's what Apple for all intensive purposes has with epic at this point.
